ABERCANAID. NEW MISTRESS.—On Monday last, Miss Harries, late assistant at Penydarren, entered upon her duties as headmistress of the infants' department at the Board Schools. We offer a very hearty welcome to Miss Harris, and trust that she will continue to main- tain the high standard of efficiency already gained at these schools. TEA PARTY.—On Monday last, at the Pentrebach Schools, in addition to the daily meal given to the children, a free tea for adults was held under the auspices cf the Pentrebach Temperance Society. A large number of persons were supplied with an excellent tea, the tables l>eing presided over by Mrs. Bailey, Mrs. Dr. Coleclough, Mrs. Grocutt, Mrs. Bates (Brown-street), and Mrs. T. T. Jenkin", who were ably assisted by the Misses Bailey, Brown, Emery, and Bates. All the members of the com- mittee were most assiduous in their endeavours to make the gathering a success. In the evening an entertainment was given, over which the Rev. T. W. Welch presided. The principal item on the oro- gramme was an address in English and Welsh by the Rev. Morris Morgan, secretary to the South Wales Temperance Association. FAREWELL PARTY.—On Thursday evening last, at the Abercanaid Board School, a farewell party was held for the purpose of giving Miss Parry, head- mistress of the infants' department, a cheerful "send of." Miss Parry terminated her engagement under the Merthyr Board on Friday last in order to pro- ceed to Yarmouth, where she has succeeded in obtaining a valuable appointment. The party, which had been organised by the teachers and friends of Miss Parry, turned out a great success. Miss Thomas, senior assistant at the schools, carried out the secre- tarial duties, and she was aided in her work by tlio Misses Williams, Jones, Matthews, Daniel, Euton, and Francis, and Messrs. Jenkins and J. G. Thomas. A very large number of friends put in an appearance to do honour to the guest of the evening. A splendid tea had been provided by Mrs. Wilde (Merthyr), and after justice had been done the repast, an adjourn- ment was made to the adjoining rooms, where games and other innocent amusements were indulged in. The accompanists of the evening were Messrs. Evans and Daniel, while Mr. F. C. Davies tendered his valuable aid as usual. On Friday afternoon the teachers and scholars presented Miss Parry with a gold bangle as a mark of their appreciation and regard during her stay of four years at the schools. Miss Parry leaves with the best wishes of the inhabi- tants generally, and wo hope that the same success will attend her in the future as iu the past.
