ABERDARE. PRESENTATION.—An interesting meeting of Forester and a number of friends took place at the Commercia Inn, on Saturday night; Canon Jenkins presided. The object of the meeting was to give a practical recognition of the services of Bro. Lewis Humphries, Secretary to Court "United Trade" for fifteen years. The presen- tation consisted of an emblem of the Order of Foresters, beautifully written and framed. Upon it was the fol- lowing inscriptionPresented by Court "United Trade," No. 5,057, A.O.F., to Bro. Lewis Humphries, for valuable services as Secretary. And also a silver medal, of very elegant design and workmanship; upon this also were emblems and an inscription. The medal was presented by Miss Hosgood. Mr. Humphries thanked the Court in suitable terms. Addresses were delivered by Mr. William Davis, visitor; Chief Ranger J. Williams, Mr. Lloyd, Gwladgawr, and the Revs. J. Joseph George and Canon Jenkins. The meeting was entertained at intervals by the Abernant Glee Choir, who gave some excellent music; other songs were also given, and a very pleasant evening was passed. THE LATE DROWNING CASE. There appears to be some difficulty in identifying the body of the man found in the Cynon on Friday last, owing to the advanced state of decomposition. The friends of a man named Price, who has not been seen for a fortnight, believe the body to be his. Price was arrested in the case of the man thrown down a pit naked a few years since. THE WANT OF A COLLIER'S FUND —A remarkable able instance of the unfortunate rejectioa of the offer of the masters for forming a permanent accident fund has just occurred at Llwydcoed. A poor fellow at the end of the week was brought home from his work quite dead. He leaves behind him no less than nine children and his widow. It is not easy to imagine the suffering that may have been averted from this bereaved family, by such a fund as the one proposed. A brother of the deceased was killed on the same spot a few years ago. Both were engaged at the time in blasting.
