Notes from South Wales. (From our Special Correspondent.) The Welsh Regiment. A friend has sent me a copy of the Men oj Harlech, the regimental organ of the Welsh Regiment in India. It is printed on good paper at Quetta, and is a very interesting publication. Several columns are devoted to the doings of the regiment, and I note with pleasure that there is a "Golofn Gymraeg." In the issue I received, the feature of the Welsh column is Noson gyda Militia Sir Gaer yn amser ein tadau," reproduced, with acknowledgment, from a Welsh periodical known as Papur Pawb. The conductors of Men of Harlech are to be Congratulated upon their loyalty to the Cymraeg. probably, it is the only Welsh column printed in India. Famous Welsh Cornetist. My attention'was drawn lately to an eulogistic report of a concert at Horsham, in which the hero of the evening was Mr. Tom Morgan. The report states that his cornet playing was so Magnificent, that at the conclusion of the pro- gramme, Lord Tumour, who was in the audience, sent specially for Mr. Morgan, and complimented hIm on his ability. I understand that Mr. Morgan, who is a native of Llanelly, has played cornet in the Coldstream Guards' Band, but he lately severed his connection with the'same, in order to take part in a series of first-class concerts, of which the concert already alluded to was one.. The Welsh George Robey. Mr. Tom Owen, a native of Swansea, has been described as the Welsh George Robey." Welshmen who have won fame as comedians on the British music-hall stage are like plums in a pake—few and far between, but Mr. Tom Owen is destined to make a great name for himself in that direction, judging from the great reception he received lately at Mr. Oswald Stoll's well- known Cardiff and Swansea Empire Music -ttalls. He possesses a genuine vein of humour and a capital voice.
