TREHARRIS. </(- Several reports unavoidably crowded out. PERSONAL.—We are sorry to hear that Mr. Ryan, the leader of the Town Band, will shortly leave us for Cardiff, at which town he intends in future to reside. TUB PUBLIC HALL was utilised every night last week, a cheering fact for the shareholders. We are expecting the steps outside the hall to be used every moment owing to the approaching elections. OUR Q.C."—It is freely stated that Mr. Lewis Morris, Q.C. has been asked and has consented to be nominated as a guardian. The Q.C." has rendered 8ignal services as chairman cf public meet- ings and otherwise. GRESHAM-PLACE is a growing suburb of our town. We observe more excavations in progress preparatory for further building. We notice that asnes and other matter is being upset close to the dwellings in this locality, a fact we hardly think the authorities are aware of. SOCIALISM.—Mr. Fred. Broeklehurat, B.A., will deliver a lecture in the Public Hall on Socialism and the Future" on Wednesday, the 26th Dr..7. Rhys Jones, Cardiff, will take the chair at 7.45, and will speak in English and Welsh. Admission three- pence. THEATRICALS.—On Friday evening last the habitues of the Public Hall were treated to a novelty in the shape of an amateur theatrical performance. "Jessamy's Courtship," and the farcical comedy, Bamboozling," were billed, while the caste con- tained such well-known amateurs as Captain and Mrs. Lindsay, Misses Nichol and Booker, and Messrs. Marriat and Watson. The audience was large and thoroughly aporeciative. The proceeds were in aid of Treharris Church and Llanbradach National Schools. SOCIAL EVENING. -On Thursday evening last, at the Board School, a social evening was spent in connec- tion with the Cookery Instruction Class conducted by Miss Griffiths, of Penarth. A committee, consisting of the following ladies, made excellent arrangements for the event :—Mrs. Dr. Leigh, Mrs. Randall, Miss Williams (Primrose Villa), Miss Payne, Miss Phillips (Shingrig), Miss Gullick (Nelson), and Miss Ray (Bargoed House). At seven o'clock a large number of the invited guests and students of the class had assembled. A very enjoyable programme was gone through, consisting of solos, dances, and games. Mr. W. T. Lewis delighted the company by rendering Our Hands have met, but not our Hearts ana The Heart Bowed Down." Mr. Goldsworthy's fine rendering of The Irish Jubilee" convulsed the house. Miss Brown also sang The Children's Home. Miss Mary Davies (The Schools) gave a recitation, The Venetian Revenge," in a very praiseworthy manner. The tables, superintended by Mrs. Leigh, Mrs. Gibbon, and others, presented a very fine display of the art of cookery, which was done ample justice to. Miss Howard, of Penarth, who acted as accompanist, deserves a word of praise for the able manner in which she performed her task. Miss Griffiths and the committee are to be congratu- lated on the success of the evening's entertainment, in which they were ably assisted by Mr. J. Jones, who acted as M.C. Among the visitors were several mem- bers of the Technical Committee, Mrs. Ray, Mrs. Thomas, Miss Symons (headmistress of the Girls' School), Miss Bollen, (head certificated class teacher Girls' School) Miss Morgans, and Drs. Jones and Law.
