ABERDARE NOTES. [By Alter*.] Cyclist Michael is an amateur photographer. lie has taken some very good likenesaes." Sir W. T. Lewi", Bart., has much benefitted by his brief holiday at Bournemouth. Upper Regent-street, during the recent wet day?, resembled the foreshore at Barry when the tide was out. Mountain Ash streets are not as muddy as those of 'Sweet "Bertlar. I-low, that! The crieketters of the district hope to form a league this summer. Such a league would be greatly appre- ciated by all devotees of the willow. The Aberdare Harriers are looking up. They won a handsome victory over the stars on Tuesday week. It is to be hoped that they will succeed in obtaining the use of thljs Recreation Grounds to practise upon and hold sports. Snch sports would prove a great; attraction to the town. Ha ha The lark and the thrush ars siugiug, the catkins show on the silver birch, and the yellow iiead of the coltsfoot is seen peering above the spongy sod in Aberdare Park. Things are about to happen. I have received the March number of the Hainrr, I the Baptist monthly, published by Mr. Jenkin Howell, Aberdare. The features are a portrait and biographical sketch of the Rev. E. W. Davies, Ton, Ystrad, Sunday school lessons, poetry, the Christian aspect of Wales in John Penry's time, ire. The articles are very readable. One of tho questions put to Miss Ada Le Butt, the clairvoyant, at the Swiss Choir entertainment on Fri- day was a* to where the missing relieving1 officer had grone to. No answer was given. The Rev. R E. Williams (Twrfab) tells me that he has in his possession a very old elsh book, called "Llwybr Hyffordd i'r Nefoedd," the author being Robert Llwyd, vicar of Waun, Denbighshire." At the end of the preface is the following O'm ftafell yn :Ffofter-hin yo Llundain Yr vgeinfed dydd o 6s Medi, 1629. Yr eiddot yn yr Arglwydd. R. 1..1." Here is a translation of one extract from this very old book: The fire of Hell is so fierce that it will burn a man. who is seven miles off, to ashes." The Rev. R. R. RutiQrkF, B.A., told his congregation on Sunday that he had ambition to be a preacher when only a youngster. He had a vivid recollection of preaching to a group of companions on the stairs. His favourite topic was eternal punishment, and he used to make it warm for some of them The shubberies at the Park have been greatly improved by judicious pruning. The whole place now presents a most pleasant appearance. It is to be hoped that the suggestion made in these columns a few weeks ago will be acted upon, and that a band of music will be engaged to play in the Park during the summer evenings. It is satisfactory to note that Mr. P. T. Rhys, the deputy-coroner, is a. Welshman. At a recent inquest he examined one of the witnesses in Cymraeg. This is as it should be. All officials in Wales should be conversant with the language of the mountains." Two of our Nonconformist ministers are ardent cyclists. Why not ? The members of the Lawn Tennis Club are to be congratulated on their histrionic ability. At their pleasant entertainment last week they performed the farco, ,")Iatrnuonial Prospectuses," in as good a manner as professionals. Mr. George Kenshole and Mr. L. Eschle were most interesting, and Miss Mia Evans, Miss Chiaholm, and Miss May Davies, did their parts with conspicuous success. Several pressmen tried to interview Jimmy Michael the other day but mum was the word." Professor Steen, who i" at present appearing at Aberdare, says that Spiritualism is » humbug, and mesmerism a fraud. Sensible people will concur with the professor. Captain Lindsay, the Chief Constable, was present at the police-court on Tuesday. It is hoped to start the Aberaman Cycling Club this season again. Last year, it will be remembered, the club, after a'flickering existence, collapsed. But this year it is intended to place the club on a sound footing. The police are to be commended upon their action with regard to street obstruction. At the last police- court several youths were fined for blockading the pavements. It is 011 Sunday night that the nuisance is at its zenith, peaceable citizens being obliged to forsake the pavements for the roadway. Dear Argus writ JS a correspondent A mist extraordinary incident happened at a local Baptist Chapel on Sunday night. Whilst the preacher was going on with his sermon a man in the congregation stood up and complained of the noise caused by some youths in the gallery. A woman also got up and made a similar complaint. The preacher stooped his sermon, and asked the youths to keep quiet. It is scandalous that youths cannot keep decorum in a place of worship." It is whispered that Prof. R. Howeils, who has been accompanist to the Choral Society for many years past, intends resigning his post. We are sorry to hear it.
