MERTHYR NON-COMMIS- SIONED OFFICERS' BALL. The second annual ball promoted by the non-com- missioned officers of the Merthyr Detachment of Volunteers took place on Wednesday evening last, and proved to he a decided success. The Drill Hall had been beautifully decorated by Messrs. Richard- son and Co., of Cardiff, who gained for themselves the reputation, at the time of the Hospital and Bachelors' Balls, of having given satisfaction to all concerned. As in the case of the balls above men- tioned the decorations were of a most elatiorate kind. The staircase had been covered with a richly coloured carpet, and a temporary corridor running across the hall was lieautifully illuminated with fairy lamps. The ballroom itself was a scene never to be forgotten. The walls of the vast hall had been draped with crimson baize, and a dado of fancy muslin, whilst the portraits looked pretty in their garb of daintily tinted art muslin. Beautiful statuettes holding lamps repre- senting types of Grecian and Roman art, and draped mirrors, Murmounted by emblazoned shields, an excel- lent collection ot foreign grasses bunting, and cur- I tains of pretty chintz, made up a bright and brilliant picture. To use the words of a lady writer, the ugly Drill Hall had been turned into a veritable palace of delight, an enchanted ground, from which dull care was banished, aud where everyone gave themselves up to the delight of dancins, tripping it lightly to the time of merry music." For the past two or three weeks the committee have been assiduously at work preparing for the ball, and right worthy are they of the praise which everyonega-ve them onWednesday evening. The following were the committee :—Colour Sergt. Harry Jones (chairman), Quarter-Master Sergeant Lockyer, Colour-Sergeant Price Owens, Serjeant S. J. Davies, Sergeant Mitchell, Sergeant Tom Elias, Sergeant Southey, Corporal Charles, Corporal Ben Havard, Lance-Corporal H. Powell, and Mr. W. M. Macdonald, secretary. Mr. T. R. Lewis' Orchestral Band supplied the music, whilst the catering was very satisfactory accomplished by Sergeant Nash, of tho Lamb Inn. A very enjoyable supper had been prepared, and the tallies had been very neatly arranged. We observed that the waiting was done by the non-commissioned officers of the detachment, and when 250 guests declared themselves, it can be taken for granted that the gallant non-coms did their duty well. The proceeds, and it is to be hoped they will reach a pretty tidy sum, will be devoted towards forming a bugle band for the Merthyr detachment. The M.C.'s were the following members of the com- mittee Colour-Sergeant Harrv Jones, Sergeant S. J. Davie?, Sergeant Southey, Corporal Charles, Corjioral B. Howard, Corporal II, Powell, and Mr. W. M. Macdonald (secretary). The following is a list of those present — Mr. and Mrs. Astle, Glebeland-place Mr. F. Anthony, Union-street, Mr. H. Aldridge, booking cleric G.W.R. Mr. Tom Arnold, Dowlais.
