BRIDGEND DISTRICT NEWS. BRIDGEND. REV. EDWAHD MATTHEWS.—We regret to say that the Rev. Edward Matthews has had another rather serious relapse. The eminent preacher's library, numbering somewhere about 1,000 volumes, has been despatched to Trevecca. It was not generally known that Mr. Matthews has. during the past few years, given several hundred volumes away to deserv- ing recipients. The rev. gentleman's new house at Bridgend is now ready, and he had intended removing there on Wednesday, but in his present state of heal th this will not be possible. A DRUNKARD IN THE TOWN.—A man, named Henry Cox, of no fixed abode, was brought up at an occasional court at Bridgend on Wednesday last, before Col. T. P. Warlow, charged with being drunk and disorderly the previous night about 9.45 p.m. Police-constable Rees requested the man to go away when he became both abusive and violent, and with difficulty he was taken into custody. He was sentenced to seven days' imprisonment with hard labour. PONTYCLOWN. DINNER AND PRESENTATION.—Last Saturday evening the members of the Pontyclown Reading Rooms held their annual meeting at National School- room, Pontyclown, where they" sat to partake of an excellent dinner and tea which were prepared by Mrs. Jones and Mrs. Rosser, assisted by several other ladies of the neighbourhood. Later on in the evening an entertainment was held, when the Rev. J. Williams presided. As Mr. R. Lewis, manager of the Ely Tin-p late Works, and who ha3 been treasurer for upwards of four years, is now about starting off for America, the committee and the members of the reading-room had taken the advantage of this meeting to present him with a beautiful walking stick, on which is the following inscription:—"Presented to the treasurer by the members of the Pontyclown Reading- room." The chairman made the presentation. Songs were rendered by Mr. Peelet, Mr. D. Thomas, Mr. Thomas Davies, Miss Mellhuish, Mr. W. Dingle, &c. Miss Cassie Morgan, Pontyclown, was the accom- panist.
