WELSH SINGER'S LONDON DEBUT. Miss Gertrude Parry, of Portmadoc, made her London debut at a concert given at Steinway Hall recently, and delighted a large audience with a varied selection of pieces in which she had ample opportunity of displaying her rich contralto voice to excellent advantage. Miss Parry included in her programme two Welsh airs, Hughes's "Wyt ti'n cofio'r" and John Henry's "Gwlad y delyn," which she rendered in a delightfully sympathetic manner, and were much appreciated by the audience. Miss Parry has been under private tuition in London for some time. The flexity of her voice and the beauty of its tone shows that consider- able care must have been taken in her prepara- tion. The Daily Chronicle says: "There is evidently a great future for Miss Parry if she continues her vocal studies, for good contraltos are scarce in London."

WELSH FESTIVAL IN ST. PAUL'S. The annual Welsh Festival held in St. Paul's Cathedral took place on Tuesday, the 27th ult. The musical portion of the service included a programme of instrumental music by the Grenadier Guards Band, conducted by Mr. A. Williams, Mus.Bac. The choirs taking part were from St. Benet's, in Queen Victoria Street; St. David's, Paddington; St. Mary's, Camber- well St. Padarn's, Hornsey Road; and the East End Mission. They had been trained for the festival by Mr. H. Meyrick Roberts, of St. Mary-the-Boltons, and Mr. David Thomas, of St. Anselm's, Davies Street. The first part of the service was intonea by Principal Thomas, and the second by the Rev, W. R. Evans. Sir John Puleston read the first lesson, and the Rev. Isaac Rees the second lesson. The Lord Bishop of Llandaff took his text from Proverbs xiv. 34—"Righteousness exalteth a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people." In the course of his remarks his Lordship said:—" We are met for a Welsh national festival. The Welsh nation is proud to take its share in contributing to the greatness, power, and influence of that great British nation of which it is a constituent part. We have no need to cry Wales for the Welsh,' for now we see the sons of Wales coming more and more to the front in every quarter of the British Empire. To-day we have not only a Welsh Lord Mayor in Cardiff, but a Welsh Lord Mayor in London also. We have even a Welsh member in His Majesty's Cabinet, and we have seen Welshmen taking a foremost place in more than one of our Colonies. We want to see our country great and prosperous. We want Wales to be a blessing to the Empire and to the world. What makes national greatness ? Physical health and strength, intellectual strength, and, above all, moral and spiritual strength. Wales has shown signs of life and activity in recent years in all these directions. She has won success in the football fields; she has made marvellous strides in higher and intermediate education; and she has shown a wonderful awakening of spiritual life in the recent Welsh revival. Let us put these things in their right place. No physical or intellectual strength, however necessary as conditions of progress, will be of permanent value without a higher principle, that is, without religion to control and guide them in short, without character."
A LIVERPOOL WEDDING. A pretty wedding took place on the 14th February ult., at Park Road Welsh Congrega- tional Church, when Dr. W. Thomas, of Brynddu, Holyhead, son of the late Mr. John Thomas, C.C., was married to Miss Lalla Williams, daughter of Mr. John Williams, of Gwynfa, Wellesley Road, Liverpool. The cere- mony was performed by the Rev. O. R. Owen, assisted by the Rev. Owen Evans, D.D. The bridegroom was supported by Mr. Rathbone Williams as best man. The bride was given away by her father, and looked very graceful in a charming gown of silk crepe de chine, trimmed with lace. Her bridal veil was worn over a wreath of orange blossom, and she carried a bouquet of white lilac and lilies. The brides- maids were Miss Madge Williams (sister of the bride), Misses Mary and Nancy Thomas (sisters of the bridegroom), and Miss Jennie Evans. They were dressed in ivory silk voile frocks,, and hats of white roses, with chiffon veils. The bridegroom presented each with a shower bouquet of daffodils and a gold bangle. Mr. George J. Owens presided at the organ, and Miss Jennie Jones sang "Angels ever bright and fair in a very effective manner. After the ceremony a reception was held at the bride's home. The bride and bridegroom subsequently left for London for their honeymoon. The presents, which numbered over two hundred, were both handsome and costly.

ddau wedi ymadael a'u gilydd; a dyna'r 'stori ddwaetha' a glywais I byth am danynt. Daeth yma rywun heibio rywdro a gymerai arno fedru taflu gole' ar yr ieuo anghymarus a fu rhwng y ddau. Yr oedd y ddau wedi bod yn dilyn eu gilydd am flynyddoedd cyn priodi, ond gwelodd ef rywbeth ynddi hi a barodd iddo ei rhoi i fyny. Ond nis mynai hi hyny. Gan fod ei hewyllys yn gryfach na'i ewyllys ef, fe'i tynodd i'r fagl eilwaith; a phriodasant. Y peth cyntaf a dd'wedodd wrtho ar ol ei phriodi oedd: y gwnaethai hi ei fywyd yn uffern iddo ar y ddaear. A bu cystal a'i gair. Mae rhai pethau yn yr hanes sydd yn gwneud i chwi feddwl am Lazarus a'r gwr goludog. Cofir yn benaf am y trydydd fel un a fu'n fodd- ion i yru teulu'r Finant i'r Eglwys. Fe barodd gryn dwrw ar y pryd, a pheth beio. Yr oedd y gweinidog yma yn un manwl dros ben y'nghylch amser dechreu pob oedfa, yn enwedig ar y Sul. Yr oedd anmhrydlondeb y bobl yn ei boeni y tu hwnt i bobpeth. Teulu pechadurus iawn yn y peth hwn oedd teulu'r Finant; ac yr oeddynt yn lluosog. Ni fyddent byth mewn pryd i gael y gwasanaeth arweiniol, ond deuent i fewn fel Sabeaid yr un pryd a'r testyn. Mae'n wir fod ganddynt ddwy filldir o ffordd i ddyfod, ond yr oedd ganddynt gerbyd yn wastad; ac yr oedd llawer a mwy na hynny ar draed, ac yn eu set cyn deg o'r gloch. Er d'weyd yn deg a d'weyd yn arw, 'doedd dim yn tycio. Penderfynodd y gweinidog ar oruchwyliaeth newydd; a'r bore' Sul dilynol, ar ol canu penill, darllenodd ei destyn, a phregethodd. Gorphen- odd ei bregeth tua'r un amser ag y byddai'n arfer gorphen y darn cyntaf o'r gwasanaeth; a daeth teulu'r Finant mewn pryd i glywed hwnw am siwrne. Aethant adref heb dd'weyd gair wrth neb. Ond yn yr hwyr, yr oedd cerbyd y Finant yn cario'r teulu heibio'r capel i eglwys y plwy' gerllaw. (l'w barhaii).
