The deceased had been drinking heavily at Aberdare, and evidently lost his way and fell-over the screen at Rhydywaun Colliery to the railway below, where his dead body was found, as already reported. The deceased's wife died at Neath some two years ago of heart disease. REVIVAL MEETINGS. — The revival meetings held throughout last week at the Welsh Wesleyan Church have proved very successful. On Thursday afternoon a large congregation assembled to hear an English address by Mrs. Evans, wife of the renowned Egl-.vysbach." Mrs. Evans has a very attractive style of delivery. On Thursday night the Rev. John Evans preached on Friday night, Rev. Evan Isaac, Penygraig and on Saturday the Rev. T. Rowlands, Hirwain. On Sunday, morning and evening, the Rev. T. Jones, pastor, preached. THE REPENT EISTEDDFOD.—We are very sorry to state that the eisteddfod held at Allerdare on Mabon's Day was a financial failure, and the committee have a balance of something like J315 on the wrong side. It would have been much more had not some friends shown a little magnanimity. The conductors of the three male voice parties subscribed 10s. each, \ï7., Mr. Phillips, Aberdare; Mr. Davies, Cwmaman and Air. Evans, Robertstown. Mr. G. M. Evans also gave 10s., and Mr. J. W. Evans, solicitor, a guinea. And the Salem Choir who were awarded the chief choral prize, remitted £5 of the money to the committee. THE NEW RELIEVING OFFICER.—We quote the following from the Bttilwa>r Review :—"Mr. 1.1. Richards, who is a member of the Aberdare Branch of the A.S.R.S., and was delegate to the Newport A.G.M., has just been elected by the Merthyr Board of Guardians to the post of relieving officer. This appointment is very popular with the railway men of the district, who are proud that one of their number a goods guard—has been selected. Mr. Richards is a man of stilling worth, and will, we have no doubt, prove a faithful public servant, as he possesses both good judgment and active sympathy, eaoh quality being required in the discharge of his important duties. RUNNING AT ABERDARE.—On Monday an athlete, who goes by the name of the "Norfolk Spider," under- took to run from Aberdare to Mountain Ash within an hour. He started from the Belle Vue in the pre- sence of a small knot of spectators, and reached Mountain Ash in good time. He started back for Aberdare in a drizzle of rain, and reached that town within an hour from starting. He thus covered n miles in the hour. The runner says that he can cover 12 miles in an hour, but this statement is challenged by several well-known athletes. Our representative saw Mr. J. Sheen, of the Athletes' Home, Aberdare. This well-known athlete, the hero or many a racing contest, told the reporter that he was ready to pay "the Snider" £20 if he could cover 12 miles within the hour on any track in England or Wales. Mr Sheen said that he was prepared to make that chal- lenge in the Mrrthi/r Tihies. He would never believe that "the Spider" could cover 12 miles in an hour, and although the Spider had shown i disposition last week to accept the challenge, he (Mr. Sheen) had heard nothing from him since. In the event of the Spider" taking up the challenge, he (" the Spider") would be required to pay expenses. CycLfXH. Tom Linton, of Aberdare, says a sport- ing journalist, is a striking instance of what pluck and conscientious training will do for a man. He has specialised himself over 50 kilometres, and his failure." to win in the past, though he has invariably run into second or third position, have been due to the fact that most of the races organised have been either too long or too short for him. On Sunday week he took part in a race over his favourite distance and acquit- ted himself in a remarkable manner. His chief com- petitors were Lesna, Lumsden, and Bauge, a young medium-distance rider who has awakened great hopes among the French. Bauge cut out a pace for a few kilometres, and then Lesna went to the front, and for a long time there was an intensely-interesting struggle between Lesna and Linton. The Aberdare man even- tually got ahead and went away from Lesna, who seemed on the point of cracking up after the hard fisfht. In the meantime Lumsden passed Bauge, who was thus in the fourth position. At the end of 20 minutes or so Linton was half a lap ahead of Lesna, and had already lapped Lumsden and Bauge two or three times. He tried hard to lap Lesna and would have easily done so had he been prouerly paced. Now and then his pacemakers brought him up to within 100 yards of Lesna. At one time Linton got within the records, and would have certainly beaten the world's records for the hour and 50 kilometres had his pacemakers only done their duty. Linton won the race in excellent time. The French are so disap- pointed with Bailee's performance that they have matched him with Linton, and the race is to come off in a few weeks' time.
