MERTHYR WOMEN'S LIBERAL ASSOCIATION. On Tuesday evening, at Beutley's Central Hall, a most enjoyable tea and conversazione, was held under the auspices of the Merthyr and District Women's Liberal Association. The hall had been artistically decorated with plants and costly drapery, kindly lent by Mrs. G. C. James, the president of the association, and Mrs. J. E. Davies, Temple of Fashion. The whole of the arrangements were, left in the hands of a small committee, whose efforts were crowned with success, and who are deserving of the thanks of All who took part in the enjoyable entertainment. They were Mrs. Hooper, Mrs. Coleman, Mrs. Eraser, Miss Mary Edwards, The Court, treasurer of the associa- tion Miss Eva Daniel, secretary pro. teni., and Miss Mary Jenkins. A ery sumptuous spread was pro- vided, the menu being supplied by Mrs. G. C. James, who was unavoidably absent; Mrs. William Harris, Mrs. Eraser, Mrs. Hooper, Mrs. Coleman, Mis. Hathren Davies, Cefn Mrs. Arthur Daniel, Troedyrhiw; Miss Mario Edwards, Miss Mary Jenkins, Miss Eva Daniel, and Mrs. J. B. Evans, Dowlais. The proceedings commenced after the style of an "at home," the following assisting at tho various tallies:—Miss Gertie James, Miss Florry Truran, Miss Maud Jenkins, Miss Laura. Michaei, Miss Florrie Williams, Miss Florrie Daniel, and Mr. D. T. George, Mr. Yorwerth, Mr. David Harris, and Mr. Willie Harris. The proceedings were interspersed with singing and misic. Towards the end of the meeting, Miss Eleanor Jones, who has just returned from her brilliai fe success in London, arrived, and we need hardly say that she received a flattering reception. In response to pressing requests. Miss Jones delighted the audienco with two songs (English and Welsh), and received warm encomiums. Among those who sang were Miss Claudia Thomey, A.L.C.M.; Miss Beatrice Evans. R.A.M. (who was encored); Miss Marie Davies, sister of Miss Maggie Davies, of Dowlais, the well-known soprano and Miss Maud Jenkins (" Sunshine and Rain"). Mr. D. T. George and Mr. Fred Davies delighted the audience with their comic songs. Mr. Evans sang in good style, Miss Bentley gave a piano- fo. te solo very artistically, and Miss Daniels and Mr. Evans gave a pretty duet (violin and piano). The accompaniments were ably played by Miss Bentley and Mr. Davies. A hearty vote of thanks to th« artistes was proposed by Miss Daniel, seconded by Mr. Rice, and carried with acclamation and a similar compliment to the ladies who worked so well to mako the affair tho success it proved, was passed, on the proposition of Mr. Ernest Daniel, seconded by Mrs. Emma Williams. The ringing of the National Anthem brought a most enjoyable evening to a close. A word of praise is due to the Ladies' Association for their activity in the cause of Liberalism, and we think that the gentlemen of the town and district should feel jealous at the great success which attends their efforts. J or a long time tho Liberals have remained dormant, while the ladies have been active, and until recently there was no kind of organisation established. It is to be hoped the gentlemen will take a leaf out of the book of the Women's Liberal Association.
