Notes from South Wales.

Well Done, Gowerton,


BUSINESS ENTERPRISE IN SOUTH WALES.— he striking progress made by the Roath Urnishing Company, Cardiff, has been further demonstrated in the erection of additional pre- sses at their already extensive buildings in astle Road and Vere Street, in that town. The new premises will give increased facilities for e firm's upholstering and polishing department ^hich is carried on by their own staff. There is ccommodation on the ground floor for 40 work- men, and the whole arrangements are on the most approved and up-to-date style. We may add uhe ^rm manufacture their own furniture, n<i have furnished hundreds of Welsh homes. Well Done, Gowerton, Patriotic Welshmen will be pleased to learn that the Gowerton School managers have just decided to supply their schools with Welsh primers. They have also decided to have pictures of Welsh notabilities placed in the schoolrooms. The managers are anxious to keep up the vitality of the beautiful language of Cambria, hence the decisions alluded to. Welsh Organist for London. Mr. D. Richards, A.R.C.O., is resigning his post as organist of Castle Street Congregational Church, Swansea, in order to take up his new appointment at King's Cross Chapel, London. Mr. Richards is a very capable musician, and keen regret is felt in Swansea at his departure. The other evening, the members of Castle Street Congregational Chapel Choir presented him with a dressing case as a token of their esteem, and other presentations are also being made. What about Wales ? I read in the London Daily Mail on Monday that King Edward, on his departure from Mar- seilles, presented his chaffeur with a tie-pin, bearing the Royal monogram, with the rose of England in rubies, the Scotch thistle in amethyst, and the shamrock in emerald." The leek was non est. This may be a small incident in its way, but, at the same time, it is a large one, and it is surprising that King Edward, who has such a great reputation for shrewdness and sagacity, should leave out of his monogram the national emblem of Wales.
