The annual entertain- ment has been fixed for this week. CHURCH DEFEXCF..—Mr, Richards, the well-known Church defence lecturer, gave a lecture recently at the Memonat Hall. The lecture was illustrated by a lantern. PERSONAL.—Mr. B. Hooper. Liberal agent, acting under medical advice, has gone to Jersey. His friends trust that he will return home thoroughly restored to health. THE CHURCH.—The Rev. Joseph Morgan, B.A., assistant curate at Nevern, Pembrokeshire, has accepted the offer of a curacy in Aberdare parish. Mr. Morgan intends commencing upon his new duties about Easter. REVIVAL MEETINGS.—The Welsh Wesleyans intend holding a series of revival meetings commencing on March 1st. The Rev, John Evans (Eglwysbach) and all the local Wesleyan ministers are expected to take part. CYCLING.—At the Velodrome D'Hiver, Paris, on Sunday, a 70 kilometre race took place in the presence of a large crowd. Tom Linton, of Aberdare, came in first, being 200 yards ahead of Lesna, who was second. Bangs was third, and Lumsden fourth. Linton's "time" was an hour, 44 mins., 24-5 sees. CYCLING.—J. Michael intends resting for a short time, and will then commence training for the Agricultural Hall tournament next month, after which he will probably race at the sport and play meeting at Coventry, on Easter Monday and Tues- day. Michael is engaged for a match later on with Bald, the American rider, to whom he concedes 50 metres in ten kilometres for £ 200 a-side. EMPIRE.—"A rare good show" is the opinion of the large crowd that have assembled at the Empire Theatre this week. The famous American Mysti- fiers," Professor and Madame Steen, perform some extraordinary feats which must be seen to be believed. The professor's sarcophagus trick is marvellous and puzzles everybody. In addition to the professor's and madame's feats there aro performances by a variety company of great excellence. Fred Wilkins is a comedian who makes you laugh, no Majilton is a sweet singer, Frank Newbury whistles beautifully, and Geo. Hunson as an instrumentalist and comedian is not often beaten. Next week the famous Kentucky Minstrels will appear at the Empire. OBITUARY.—We deeply regret to have to chronicle the death of Mrs. Potting, Norton Villa, Clifton- street, Aberdare, which occurred last week at tho age of 83 years. Deceased was born at Aberdare, and had seen the town grow from a small township into a large and busy place. She was the widow of the late Mr. D. Botting, who owned the old smithy at the bottom of Monk-street. In days gone by this smithy was quite a noted place, and even to-day its existence has not been erased from the memories of the old in- habitants. Up to twelve months ago the deceased was quite active and healthy; but from that date she broke up" gradually, and the end came last week as already stated. The deceased, who was well-known and respected, had several children. Those who survive her are Mr. Charles Betting, G.W.R., Aberdare, and Mrs. Hughes, widow of the late Mr. Hughes, overseer. There are also a number of grandchildren. The funeral took place at the Old Churchyard. ABKRDARK, MERTHYR, AXDNANTMKLYN COLLIERIES. —As alreadv announced in tho Merthyr Times, tho above collieries have been idle for the laat seven weeks owing to the failure of the company. There were about 700 men employed at the collieries, and the stoppage caused great trouble. Five weeks ago a liquidator was appointed, and since that time the collieries have been kept opsn, although no men have been employed. W e understand that negotiations have been passing between the local landowners with the view of reconstructing the company. On Satur- day morning last, however, the following notice was posted up at the collieries :—" Notice is hereby given that the services of all persons employed in or about these collieries will not be required -ifter the 25th of February, and the liquidator will not be answerable for any wages that may be due after that date. Dated the 21st February, 1896. Liquidator, Aberdare Merthyr, and Nantmelyn Collieries." This notice caused great consternation at Aberdare. It was thought that the company would be reconstructed I and the works set going again but those hopes have now been dashed to the ground I Co-OPERATIVE EXHIBITION.—On Thursday a co- The"Swi»H«hlblt,0n WaS lield at the Market-place. fr°m 3 p.m. tolOp.m the Lrocwi«mfii af(im'tte fl|ee of c'iarge- Samples of the -\nd other &°°df!' »tore<l at the ° establishments in the district were v.rw the manner m which they were arranged being PV»I I those who had charge of the During intervals, the Aberaman Silver < na discoursed sweet selections of music there was so a dinner for the Co-operative officials and repre- j^entatives at the Boot Hotel in the afternoon, and &t '•<30 p.m., a public meeting was held at the Market- place. Mr. E. Jones presided, in the unavoidable absence of Alderman David Morgan, and gave an introductory address, in the course of which he spoke on the benefits of co-operation. Addresses, dealing with the co-operative system, were also given by Mr. • H. Brown, of Newport, Mr. Clay, Mr. J. F. Goodev, director of the Co-operative Wholesale Society (London Branch), and Mr. D. Griffiths, the latter in Welsh. Mr. Pumphrey, secretary of the Co-operative Wholesale Society, was also to have given an address but he was unavoidably absent. Mr. Tom Davies (Llew De) gave an able rendering of Anchored Mr. Evan Evans, winner of the alto solo at the Llanelly Eisteddfod, 1895, sang a song very nicely, and the duet, "Martial Spirit" (Dr. Parry) by Messrs. William Thomas and Tom Davies took well. The song, Gwlad y Delyn," was well rendered by Mr. William James (Eos Morganwg). The proceedings terminated with "Hen Wlad y Nhadau." The accompanist was Mr. Tom Lewis who gave every satisfaction. INTER-CLCB RACE.-An interesting inter-elub race as decided on luesday evening week between the Aberdare Harriers and tho Al>erdare Stars C.C. Light ran on each side, but only the first five home were to count in deciding the number of points. The runners arrived home in the following order:—1st, A. B. Manning ^captain, Harriers); 2nd, O.Morgan (Harriers) 3rd, J. Bowen (secretary, Harriers); 4th, W. James (Stars); 5th, E. J. Smith (Harriers); 6th, Austin Jones (Harriers); 7th, D. Thomas (Stare); 8th, 1). Rees (Stars) 9th. E. Evans (Stars); 10th, J. Jones (Harriers); 11th, J. Deere (Harriers); 12th, F. J. Caldicott (Stars); 13th, J. Davies (Harriers); 14th, Mr. W. Davies (Stars); 15th, D. Jones (Stars); 16th, J. Davies (Stars). The Harriers won by 23 points. We understand that a smoking concert will be held next week by the Harriers in honour of one of the members who is leaving the town. We under- stand that the race for the championship of the Harriers, and the two handicap races, will take place on March 19th. The championship prize will oe a medal. The cross-country season will finish with the races, after which the memhers will go in for training for the athletic sjxirts which are proDosed to be held in the summer. The captain (Mr. Manning) is try- ing to arrange with Mr. David, of the Rock Brewery, for the use of the Recreation Grounds, near the Empire Theatre, for the purpose of training and holding the sports. We hope that the negotiations Empire Theatre, for the purpose of training and holding the sports. We hope that the negotiations will prove successful, because these grounds are well suited for racing and training. In tho event of the negotiations proving successful the captain intends soliciting subscriptions towards obtaining a dressing tent and horizontal bars for erection on the grounds. On the whole the prospects of the club are very bright, r OBITUARY.—Wo have to chronicle the death of Mr. p. Jones, butcher, Commercial-street, which occurred last Saturday, at the age of 66 years. rlhe deceased, who was a native of St. Clears, was well known and respected at Aberdare, where he had resided for 50 years. He was a man of integrity and business apti- tude. He could relate many interesting stories of Aberdare and the great progress that had been made in the town. A brother of the deceased is the Rev. James Jones, Baptist minister, of Tonyrefail. Another brother, the late John Jones, was the first man to open a colliery in lennesse, U.S.A. The funeral of the deceased took place this week at Aber- dare Cemetery.—The funeral of the deceased took place at Aberdare Cemetery on Tuesday, when a very large concourse of the public attended to show their respect for the dead.

OI L)DEN DEATH. -A very sudden death took place at Aberdare last week. It appears that whilst Mrs. Griffiths, wife of Mr. T. Griffiths, an employee at the Lamp Works, was engaged in conversation with a friend in a house at Robertstown, she suddenly fell forward and died almost immediately. The deceased, who was the daughter of Alderman D. Morgan, miners' agent, Aberdare, was well known in the town. She had the appearance of a healthy young woman, and her sudden and unexpected death came as a terrible shock to her relatives and friends. Her age was 23 years. It was only about a year since she was married. The funeral took place at the Aberdare Cemetery on Saturday afternoon, and was one of the largest seen at Aberdare for a long time past. The cortege was headed by the Rev. J. Griffiths, pastor of Calfaria Baptist Church; Rev. B. Evans, pastor of Gadlys Baptist Church Rev. D. Silyn Evans, pastor of Siloa Independent Church Rev. W. Harries, pastor of Mill-street Batpist Church Rev. 11. E. Williams (Twrfab), pastor of Ynysllwyd Baptist Church and Rev. J. Morgan, Brynsion, Trecynon. Then followed the general pub- lic, who included the High Constable, Mr. L. N. Williams, and representatives of the various trades in town. Then followed several colliery officials, includ- ing Mr. J. Davies, general manager of Nixon's Navi- gation Colliery Mr. G. Thomas, Mardy Mr. D. Thomas, Primrose Hill, and others. There were also present, Councillor T. Thomas, Mr. L. Miles, sec. of the Sliding-scale Committee Mr. D. Parker, sec. of the Aberdare and Merthyr district colliers and Mr. J. Davies, Ilirwain. Then came a largo procession of colliers, who had left off work early in the day in order to bo present at tho funeral and testify their respect. The coffin was covered with beautiful wreaths and enclosed in a hearse supplied by Messrs. John Morgan and Sons. The mourners followed, in- cluding Alderman Morgan, father of the deceased, Mr. T. Griffiths, husband of the deceased, and Mr. Fisher Morgan, brother of the deceased. The members of the Calfaria Choir also formed part of the coitego and sang funeral hymns in a very im- pressive manner. The Revs. J. E. Griffiths, li. E. Williams (Twrfab), and D. Silyn Evans officiated with much feeling at the graveside. The utmost sympathy has been created for the bereaved relatives in their great sorrow,
