Home News. CARDIGAN. A bazaar was opened at the Coliseum, Aber- ystwyth, on Wednesday, by Mr. David Davies, Llandinam, in aid of the Tabernacle Welsh Cal- vinistic Methodist Chapel. The Church, which is the oldest Nonconformist body in the town, dating back to 1785, recently incurred a liability of £3,000 in the building of a fine new organ and the renova- tion of the chapel, and the bazaar was organised with the view of wiping off this debt. Mr. Davies was accompanied by his mother and sister. The bazaar was continued on Thursday, on which day it was opened by Mrs. Edward Roberts, Man- chester, wife of the High Sheriff of Cardiganshire. CARNARVON. In addition to Dr. John Williams and Dr. Robert Parry, both of Carnarvon, the Lord Lieutenant of Carnarvonshire has nominated Mr. C. G. Assheton Smith and Mr. Ernest Neele (chief manager of the Dinorwic Quarries) to be placed on the commission of the peace for the county of Carnarvon. At the last meeting of the Council of the Bangor University College the following resolution was unanimously passed :—" The Council has heard with profound regret of the death of Colonel the Honourable W. E. Sackville West, who was one of the original members of the Council, and for eight years its chairman. It recalls with admiration the marked business capacity, the courtesy and high sense of duty and the sound judgment and strict impartiality which, animated by a warm devotion to the interests of the College, enabled him to render to the institution, in the early days of its existence, services which can never be forgotten. They desire at the same time to tender to the members of his bereaved family an expression of their deep and respectful sympathy. DENBIGH. The following have been added to the commission of the peace for Denbighshire :—Messrs. W. C. Jones, Llannerch Park, St. Asaph A. L. Duncan, Trevalyn, Rossett; G. Robertson Sandbach, Stone- leigh, Rossett; and Major George H. F. Robertson, Gladwyn, Wrexham. MERIONETH. Captain David William Kirkby, whose death is announced, was the owner of the Maesyneuadd, Talsarnau, and Llanfedigaid estates in Merioneth- shire. He was a descendant of one of the oldest Welsh families and traced his descent to Osborn Wgdded, who settled in Wales in the thirteenth century. He was a fine sportsman, and hunted the Cornwall Hounds. He took no active part in politics or county matters, but was a staunch Churchman and Conservative. MONMOUTH. Mr. J. E. Southall, of Newport, the Welsh pub- lisher, has just added another (writes a Welsh cor- respondent) to the many services he has already rendered to the cause of Welsh teaching in Welsh day schools. In view of the Glamorgan County Council's decision that Welsh should be taught in their schools and their recommendation of the use of Welsh mottoes and proverbs, he is issuing a series of twenty-two Welsh mottoes in decorative and coloured designs, suitable for being hung as pictures on the school walls. Underneath the Welsh words is an English translation. One could hardly think of a happier or less ostentatious way of exciting the interest of school children in the native language, and in giving those unfamiliar with it a rough idea of its qualities. Welsh is par- ticularly rich in pungent and happily expressed proverbs, and any boy, whether Welsh or English, who learnt them would have distinctly enriched his mind in the process. In his selected texts Mr. Southall has included most of the greater proverbs, but one cannot help noticing the absence of such a robust national sentiment as Trech gwlad nag arglwydd." MONTGOMERY. The late Dowager Lady Williams Wynn, it appears, has by her will made provision for the establishment of a charity by which the poor of the Llangedwyn district will benefit for, it is hoped, all time. The late dowager also bequeathed a year's wages to each and all of her servants, with special bequests in addition to those who spent many years in her service.

Gohebiaethau. [Nid ydym mewn un modd yn gyfrifol am syniadau ein gwahanol ohebwyr. 1 I- "A CROSS COUNTY TRIP." At Olygyddy LONDON WELSHMAN." MR. GOLYGYDD,—Byddaf yn ddiolchgar os caniatewch i mi ychydig ofod yn eich papyr adnabyddus er mwyn galw sylw amryw ddarllenwyr CYMRO LLUNDAIN at yr erthygl dan y penawd uchod a ymddangosodd yr wyth- nos o'r blaen, gan One of Them." Pe buasai yn un o honynt hwy," ni allai byth fod yn llai moesgar yn ei sylwadau am bobl barchus Ceredigion, yn enwedig Dyffryn Aeron. Mae fel llawer Dic-Shon-Dafydd o'i fath, yn mesur pawb wrth ei lathen ei hun." Credaf nad oes raid i bobl Dyffryn Aeron blygu glin i "One of Them" mewn cerddoriaeth. Nid yw Cor Cymry Llundain yn llewyrchu yn amlwg iawn, ond yn eu meddyliau hwy eu hunain. Pan yn cystadlu ag "uncultured" a "hardened natives" pentrefi Cymru, mae y beirniaid yn methu gweld eu rhagoriaethau. Ond gall parti meibion pentref Llangeitho (dinod ac anadna- byddus) ymffrostio mewn gwobr Eisteddfod Genedl- aethol. Mae yn amlwg na wnaeth One of Them fwynhau ei daith o Aberystwyth i Langeitho am nad oedd, mi dybiaf, yn meddu ar lygaid i weled prydferthion natur, 'roedd er hynny yn ymwybodol ei fod yn mynd i fyny ac i waered, ac hefyd fod gwlaw yn disgyn, a dyna'r oil. Yr eiddoch, &c., HEN WLADWR. SOCIAL EVENING AT CASTLE STEET. To the Editor of THE LONDON WELSHMAN." SIR,An unfortunate omission was made in the account of the above Social given in your columns last week. No reference was made to one of the most interesting items of the evening, viz Miss Gwen Price's recitations. Miss Price is a sister to Mrs. Tudor Rhys, and also a formidable rival in the art of elocution. She recited "Papa's letter" and "Aunt Tabitha," and did full justice to the pathos of the one, and the humour of the other. The writer of the account wishes to express to Miss Price his regret at the unfortunate omission, which arose entirely through an unaccountable oversight. Yours, &c., THE WRITER. ANGEN CYDYMDEIMLAD. At Olygydd y "LONDON WELSHMAN." SYR,—Sicr yw y caniata eich hynawsedd arferol (fel yn y blynyddoedd blaenorol) i alw sylw at yr angen am gydymdeimlad crefyddol Cymreig tuagat y brodyr a chwiorydd o'n cenedl yn ystod y gauaf, drwy anfon rhoddion i'r cenhadon Cymreig yn y cylchoedd agosaf (y mae cenhadwr yn mhob adran o'r ddinas). Nis gall un brawd, chwaer na gweinidog ddyfalu yr anhawsder i'r cenhadwr gyflawni ei waith fel y dymunai, a gwynebu achosion teilwng o gynorthwyo, ac yntau heb ddim ar eu cyfer. Gall ychydig garedigrwydd amserol fod yn iachawdwriaeth enaid, yn ogystal a chorph llawer un. Y mae y brawd tlawd yn frawd i'r llwyddianus, y chwaer dlawd yn chwaer i chwaer gyfoethog, o'r un genedl, a sicr yw os yw y diwygiad diweddaf a chynhesrwydd yr eglwysi yn wirioneddol y daw peth o hono a dedwydd- wch i rywun a all esbonio yn brofiadol, Gwyn ei fyd a ystyrio wrth y tlawd." Gwna y cenhadon eu goreu, a. theilyngant gefnogaeth. Yr eiddoch, &c., MAELOR.
AT EIN GOHEBWYR. MAHLY.—Bu raid cwtogi tipyn ar yr hanes, fel y gwelwch, o ddiffyg lie. Nid oes dim newydd-deb yn y penillion. CYMRO (Caerdydd).—Peidiwch un ainser a beio y sawl a geisiant wneyd lies i'n gwlad a'n cenedl. Gellwch anwybyddu'r personau os bydd y canlyniadau yn gymer- adwy i ni fel pobl. J. E.-Diolch am yr adroddiad, a rhoddir rhan o honno yn y rhifyn presenol. ROSSERONIAN.-Penillion digon tlws, ond 'does modd caellle iddynt ar hyn o bryd. W. PIERCE.—Yr ydym yn hollol barod i roddi'r man- ylion yng ngholofn "Y Dyfodol," ond credwn ar yr un pryd y dylasech chwithau ein cefnogi ninnau trwy roddi hysbysiad i ni. Cofiwch mai caredigrwydd lied unochrog yw i ni wneyd y cyfan, a chwithau ddim ond medi o ffrwyth yr hyn a wnawn drosoch. Anfonwch hysbys- iad yn awr ac eilwaith o'ch prif gyfarfodydd. D. JONES.—Ar un wedd y mae genych le i gwyno, ond fe ddylasech gofio fod yn rhaid i ni, fel pob papyr arall, wrth hysbysiadau. Ond 6 hyn allan, hyderwn allu ychwanegu y tudalenau, a rhoddi amryw o faterion newydd ger bron ein cefnogwyr o wythnos i wythnos. HEN WLADWR, A T. J. D Fel Cardis mae i chwi groesaw i amddiffyn eich sir o unrhyw enllib a wntir ar ei phobl, ond nis gwelwn fod "One of- Them" wedi bod yn llawdrwm iawn ar wyr Dyffryn Aeron, fel y credwch. ci.
Football Chat. [By PEL DROED.] Saturday's Matches.—The most sensational event of last Saturday's football matches in Wales was the signal defeat of Newport by Cardiff, the latter team scoring three goals (one dropped) one try to a try. After Newport's smart performance against the Old Merchant Taylors on the previous Saturday, and Cardiff's indifferent play on the same day at Bristol, it was generally anticipated that the Usksiders would vanquish the Blue and Blacks, but Cardiff rose to the occasion, with the result that their play was fifty per cent. better than it was at Bristol. The forwards were very clever and so were the halves. To-day Cardiff meet Swansea at the Cardiff Arms Park, and a tre- mendous attendance is anticipated. Swansea only just managed to ward off defeat whilst playing Llanelly at St. Helen's, and if the Cardiffians repeat their form against Newport, it is almost certain that the "Swansea Invin- cibles" will bite the dust-or mud, as you please. New Zealand Team.-Again have I to chronicle another victory by the New Zealanders. Last Thursday they were at Gloucester, the nearest place to Wales that they have yet visited, and, as a consequence, ex- cursion trains were run thither from South Wales in order to give South Walians an idea of their style. It is certain that these continued victories, of the New Zealanders have only served to increase interest in their forthcoming fixtures in South Wales. They will first of all meet Wales at Cardiff, and subsequently Glamorgan county at Swansea. They have also fixtures with the Swansea, Newport and Cardiff teams. Notts Forest.—Notts Forest Association team are doing very well this season. They are captained by a Welshman, viz., Mr. A. Granville Morris, who is a native of Builth Wells. I remember young Morris commencing his foot- ball career with the team of his native town, and his display soon convinced the spectators that he was destined to shine in the football world. Subsequently he removed to Aberyst- wyth, and played with the club of that town during the season when it achieved the dis- tinction of winning both the Welsh and South Wales Challenge Cups. Roose, the present goalkeeper of Stoke, was another member of the Aberystwyth team at the time. Morris went from Aberystwyth to Swindon, and his clever- ness was mainly responsible for that team's good show in the Southern and Western Leagues. From Swindon Morris went to Nottingham, and his play in the ranks of Notts Forest has been excellent. He has also played with the Welsh Association International team. London Welsh are still continuing their winning career, but up to the present they have not been pitted against a first-class combination. We shall be anxious to see how they shape against the stronger clubs a little later on in the season. Next Saturday they are playing United Services away and should add more points to the already large number they have gained so far this season.
One of the most trying things to an English- man in America is listening to the tall stories of the Americans. And the Yankee does not lose his genius when he comes over to this country. An American passenger in a tram the other day was wearying his fellow-travellers with stories or this order, and remarked We can start with a twelve-storey hotel one month, and have it finished the next." This was too much for a burly Welshman who sat next to him. "Man, that's nothing," he replied. I've seen 'em when I've been going to work just laying the founda- tion-stones of a row of houses, and when Ive been coming home at night they've been putting the folks out for back rent."
