Last Sunday being open Sunday there was a good at- tendance of men and women at the Brotherhood meeting in Green Street Chapel. Mr David Evans, London Ware- house, delivered a most telling and in- structive address on Great Men who have helped the ages." The lesson for the day was Genesis xxii. 1-19. Miss Elsie Berry sang very sweetly, Angels ever bright and fair." Next Sunday will be a special open Sunday, when Mr F. Duxbury, the great elocutionist, will give a sacred recital, The Book of -Job." CARMEL (B) .-On Sunday last the Rev. W. Thomas, Ffrwd, Mountain Ash, occupied the pulpit ot Carmel. In the morning service the reverend gen- tleman adopted as his text a passage from Joshua 3. In the evening the text was John 5, 8, "Rise, take up thy bed and walk." The burden of the dis- course was that faith was essential in 'the working of a miracle. The final walk implied that the healed one was -to change his course of life, afid the Christian's course was to he similar- no resting but continuing to work for the Master.—In the afternoon Mr. Thomas addressed the Sunday School. TERRITORIAL EXHIBITION. — There was an exhibition of Swedish drill by a squad of local Territorials at the Drill Hall on Saturday evening. This form of drill is an innovation in the district. Twenty-three men from the H C" and D" Company, 5th Welsh, Mountain Ash, and 14 men from the < E" Company, Aberdare, under the instruction of Staff-sergeant Hatcher, of thu Gymnastic Staff, went through a series of marches, drills, and boxhorse .exercises in a very smart manner. The .officers present were.- Major East, Staff Officer-, Lietit.-Col.^M. Morgan, Officer (Commanding 5th Welsh; Major F. N. <Gray, Major W. D. Phillips, Captain and Adjutant M. Haggard, Lieut. R. D. Williams, and Lieut. A. O. Marnier. Major East complimented the men at i the close, and impressed upen them the importance of Swedish drills, and asked them to try to influence others to join. N.U.T.

W. Dakers, B.A., the president- elect, of Newcastle-on-Tyne, from whom the presidential address, dealing power- fully with current educational ques- tions, mav be expected. It is anticipa- ted that 2*,000 members will be present as the appointed representatives of the 521 branches of the union. Deputations of teachers from Scotland, Ireland, Belgium, Germany, Sweden. Switzer- land, the Teachers' Guild of Great Britain and Ireland, and the Co-opera- tive Union are expected to attend the .conference. It is expected that many teachers from South Wales, in addition to the delegates, will attend. This iinioil is one of the. best organised institutions in the country, and exercises very powerful influence upon the govern- ment's educational provisions, and the manifesto of the president at confer- ence is looked forward to by the teach- ers and the public at large. TRINITY. Trinity English C.M. Church was crowded on Sunday evening. The preacher was the Rev. R. R. Ro- berts, B.A., Chester, formerly pastor of Trinity. Mr Roberts took as his text Romans viii. 16, 17, where it is stated that believers shall be children of God and joint heirs with Christ. The preach- er dwelt upon the fatherhood of God and the sonship of Christ. Great was the mystery attached to this doctrine, but if we lived only on what we understood our spiritual existence would be a very bare one. We were to be born of God- begotten by God. This was infinitely greater than conversion. He (the preacher) did not mind how much of the ape there was in him. God had made wonderful things out of a little carbon. Born of the ape and born of ,Crod-what a contrast! It was sad sometimes to be divided from our chil- dren by physical barriers. The parent might 'be physically or intellectually strong, whereas the child would be the reverse, but the former could not transmit his strength to his offspring. God, however, transferred his power to his believing children. The aspiration and prayer of the Hindoo was to be annihilated-absorbed in the great Nir- vana, but the Christian's destiny was to be "filled with the fulness of God." LECTURE. An exceedingly inter- esting lecture, illustrated with lantern slides, was given by the Rev. ,L Tyssul Davies, B.A., Newport, at Highland Place Schoolroom on Thursday evening. The subject was Ceylon. The lee- turer some years ago stayed in Colombo, the capital of Ceylon, where he was the head professor of a, college. In the course of his remarks Mr Davies said that most of the important Christian denominations had their colleges there, and the Buddhists, who were very toler- ant people, ha.d also a college, in which he was engaged. This college was open to Buddhists, Mahometans, Christians, and all sorts of Nothingarians, and the man whom the authorities believed could be trusted to deal impartially with all was a Unitarian minister from Wales. (Laughter and applause.) Mr Davies threw pictures on the screen showing how tea was grown and picked, ex- plaining how various blends could be obtained from the same bush-from 4d ,-per lb to JL2 2s per lb. It was strange, observed the lecturer, how people had taken to tea, which had an astringent taste, when pure water was ever so much better and healthier. But there," he added, we all have our faults."—The lantern, which was kindly lent by Mr Ben Roderick, was manipulated by Mr W. R. Evans. AT CALF ARIA HALL a grand bachel- ors' supper was held on Thursday even- ing. The tables were presided over by the following:—Messrs F. Davies and David Jones; Rhys Moseley and Ben- jamin Pugh; W. H. Powell and Cyril Griffiths; S. D. Williams and Evan Morgan; George Price and Thomas Adams; Robert Walters and D. W. Peters; John Lawrence and George Wil- liams, assisted by several attendants.

Superintendents: Messrs David Evans and James Williams. In charge of pastries, etc., Mr Christmas and Mr Daniel Price. The arrangements were carried out by an efficient committee, with Messrs W. H.

"KING OF THE WILD WEST."— This popular American drama is pro- duced at the New Theatre this week by Mr. George N. Ballenger's clever and gifted company of performers. It is a p play that illustrates life out in the Far West, and the various situations are followed with deep interest by the aud- iences. The principal part of the King of the Wild West is magnificently taken by Young Buffalo, the famous American Cowboy actor, whilst the part of Wild Nell (sister to Young Buffalo) is very cleverly portrayed by Miss Lilian Maude. Mr. Robert Chambers acts well as Jack Morton, who is engaged to Wild Nell, and Miss Lucy Burrows is very able in her part as Kate Morton, the "Purtiest gal in Arizona." Mr. Arthur G. Goff is a success in the "heavy lead" as John Bluffington, and a great deal of humour is imparted by the amusing dialogues between Miss Kitty Glover and Mr. Gus Rublin as "Mrs. Miles McCarthy, the widow," and "Judge Gritt," lawyer and stage driver respectively. Mr. Ralph Bram- bles as "Pedro," a Mexican; Mr. Bert Ratcliffe as Yellow Face, an Apache Indian Desperado, are also very effec- tive in their parts. The company is supported by a number of Cowbovs, and a band of genuine American In- dians attired in native garb. There is also a Cowboy Band present, who play selections at intervals. The band of Indians introduce their native song4 and war dances, and the play is brimful of exciting episodes. Excellent feats of marksmanship in revolver-shooting are displayed, and the scenery is most realistic. Pretty selections of Indian and American music are played, and there is not a dull moment from the rife to the fall of the curtain.

Cymrodorion Aberdar. Cwledd Cwyl Dewl. Nos Wener, Mawrth 7, ydoedd nos gwledd a gladdest Cymrodorion Aber- dar, y lie ydoedd Ysgol y Gadlys, a'r arlwywr ydoedd Mr. F. W. Caunt. Wedi yr arlwy o gig pob, danteithion biasIK a phasteion amryw aed ati i goff- hau a mawrhau ein sant cenedlaethol. Llywyddwvd gan Mr. J. Griffiths, llyw y gymdeith^s,, ac yr oedd hefyd wrth y Ijwrdd croes yr Uweh Gwnstabl, Mr J. H. Powell, a Mrs. Powell, Mrs. D. M. Richards, Miss Eluned Morgan o'r Wladfa, Mr. Edgar Jones, A.S., Mr. R. Edwards James, eyfreitliiivr; y Parch. Penar Griffiths, Pentre Estyll; Parch. W. Davies, M.A., is-lywvdd y Gym- deithas; y Parch. R. Williams, cyn- lyvvydd, a Mrs. Williams. Yr oedd y trefniadau yn nwylaw Miss Morfudd Davies a Mr. J. Davies (Iwan Goch), ysgrifenyddion, a'r Cynghorwr George Powell, trysorydd y Gym- deithas. Y cyfeilydd ydoedd Miss Winnie Evans, un o aelodau v Gym- deithas. Cyfeiriodd y llywydd at absenoldeb Mr. D. M. Richards (Myfyr Dar), un o'r ffyddloniaid Cymrodorol, a rhodd- wyd arwydd cyffredinol o gydymdeim- lad ag ef yn ei selni parhaus. Wedi yfed iechyd y Brenin ar gynyg- iad y llywydd, caed detholiad o alawon Cymreig ar y delyn gan y telynor ieuanc Mr. Roger Thomas o Gwmaman. Cyn- ygiwyd ".Ein sefydliadau crefyddol a gwladol" gan yr I wch Gwnstabl mewn araeth wresog. Soniodd am grefydd- oldeb y Cymry a'r Ile amlwg a ga yr eghvys, yr Ysgol Sul, y gyfeillach a pnregethu yn ein hanes cenedlaethol. Yr oedd y pethau hyn yn agos iawn at galon goreugwyr Cymru. Yn y gor- phenol cedwid plant Cymru yn ol o seddau anrhydedd yn ein gwlad. Nid diffyg talent oedd yr achos o hyn, ond diffyg cyfle. Desgrifiodd Mr. Powell yn fyr y dull o gyfranu dysg pan oedd *ef yn llanc haner can' mlynedd yn ol. Er- byn hyn yr oedd pethau wedi myned ar eu gwell. Gyda thaeniad addysg yr oedd Cymru wedi rhoddi Ham yn y blaen. Atebwyd y llwnc-destyn hwn gan y Parch. J. Lewis, Hebron, yr hwn a gyf- eiriodd at genedl y Cymry fel un wedi ei gorchfygu ond heb ei darostwng. Yr oedd y Cymry yn naturiol deyrngar, ac hefyd yn bobl yn meddu gwelediad clir. Nid oedd y Sais materol yn meddu dych- ymyg y Cymro. Atebwyd yn mhellach gan Mr. Edgar Jones, A.S., yr hwn a wnaeth gvfeiriad at Hywel Dda y cyfreithiwr a'r gwlad- weinydd, a'r Cymro pur. Pwysleisiai Mr. Jones yr angenrheidrwydd i swydd- ogion Cymru fod yn Gymry o iaith. Doniol ydoedd sylw ein haelod Seneddol fod gweinyddiad deddf Moses yn awr yn nwylaw cynghorwyr lleol. Da oedd ganddo ddeall fod y ddeddf yn cael ei j hanrhydeddu yn y gweinyddiad o honi yn Aberdar. Nis gallem, meddai, garu yr Ymherodraeth Brydeinig ond gallem garu ein gwlad. Yr oedd i bob ymher- odraeth gyllid a milwriaeth a phethau digariad felly yn sail a chynaliaeth, ond pnf nerth a gogoniant Cymru ydoedd ei chrefydd. Wedi anrhydeddu y llwnc-destyn hwn yn y modd arferol canwyd amryw ben- illion ac englynion hefyd ar y delyn gan Myfanwy a Megan Williams, merched bychain y Parch, a Mrs. R. Williams, a'r gwr ieuanc Roger Thomas a'i ddwv- law ar y delyn. Y peth nesaf ar y rhaglen ydoedd "Dewi Sant." Cynygiwyd iechyd-os priodol y gair-yr hen sant gan Penar, yr hwn a grybwyllodd eu bod yn cwrdd y noson bono mewn lie a fu unwaith yn faes j- gwaed'—man cynull cadau rhyfel- gar. Mwyach nid oedd y Gadlys yn Hys y gad, ond yn gyrchfan ysgolorion. Nid castell ond ysgol geid yno erbyn hyn. Arwyddai hyn dyfiant bywyd gwell Cymru. Cofiai efe-gyda llaw, brodor o'r ardal yw Penar- y fan yn nawddle i hen geffylau gwaith. A gyda pharch y dymunai ddweyd yr oedd yno gystal casgliad o hen geffylau gwaitli y noson hono ag a welodd erioed (chwerthin). Tra yn son am ein nawdd- sant dywedodd Penar fod ambell ddyn heb fod yn sant ac ambell sant heb fod yn ddyn. Yr oedd Dewi y naill a'r Hall. Araf er hyny y daw y sant i'w etifedd- iaeth. Cymerodd ganrifoedd lawer i seintio Dewi. Soniai rhai am ofergoel- iaeth ein gwlad, ond yr oedd arno ef lawer mwy o ofn materoliaeth Cymru na'i hofergoel. Cyn dibenu rhoddodd Penar glod uchel i'r rhan a wnaeth y glowr Cymreig yn anad un dosbarth o weithwyr i godi'r hen wlad, Wedi can, "Adgofion bore oes," gan Mr. D. O. Roberts, galwyd ar Eluned i gynyg iechyd y Cymrodorion, yr hyn a wnaeth mewn Cymraeg llithrig a dilwgr. Nid cenedl heb iaith, meddai. "Heb y Gymraeg heb ddim" fyddai tynged y Cymry. Ein Clawdd Offa ni oedd ein hiaith. Yr oedd dyfodol ein gwlad i raddau helaeth yn Haw merched Cymru. Dylai ein cenedlaetholdeb ddechreu gar- tref. Dyledswydd oedd arnom gofio Dewi Sant yn Gymraeg ac mewn syml- edd gwerinoL Cenedl fechan oeddym, ond rhoddwyd i ni gyfleusderau i wneyd pethau mawrion. Yna caed anerchiadau barddol gan Ab Hevin, Ogwen, Mr. George Powell, ac Iwan Goch, yr hwn hefyd a ddarllenodd anerch Myfyr Dar o wely cystudd. Yn nesaf gwnaed casgliad ar ran y mudiad i goffhau awdwyr "Hen Wlad fy Nhadau" yn Mhontypridd. Cafwyd "Breuddwyd y Frenliines" ar y delyn gan Mr. Roger Thomas, a dum- wyd "Gwlad y Delyn" gan Miss Maggie Phillips. Atebwyd i lwnc-destyn y Cymrodorion gan y Parch. W. Davies, is-lvwvdd. Yfwyd iechyd da yr ymwel- wyr ar gynygiad Mrs. (y Parch.) John Morgan, ac atebwyd gan yr Uwch Gwn- stabl. Diweddwyd y cwrdd yn sain "Hen Wlad fy Nhadau." C Butcher's Divorce
fit the Divorce Division on Monday, before Mr Justice Bargrave Deune. the undefended suit of Phillips v. Phillips and Davies was heard, the ground of the petition being the wife's alleged adultery with the co-respondent.—Mr Buckniil (instructed by Mr T. Marehant Harries, from the office of Mr William Thomas), said the petitioner, Phillip Phillips, a butcher, of Cwmaman, Aberdare, was married on the 24th December, 1883, at the registry office, Merthyr, to Sarah Phillips. There were no children of the marriage, and the respondent drank heavily and got her husband into debt. In March. 190G, after a drinking bout, she left him for three weeks, and then came back to fetch some clothes. Since then she had not returned. In June, 1906, she summoned petitioner for per- sistent cruelty. He agreed to a mam- tenance order. The adultery was proved in Aberdare Police Court, where both the respondent and the co-respon- dent were convicted of indecency. After that conviction the magistrates dis- charged the order against the petitioner on the cruelty charge.—Evidence was given by the petitioner and Thomas Wil- liams, public park inspector, of Aber- dare, and a decree nisi was granted.
Mountain Ash Newsagents. The newsagents of the Aberdare Valley have now formed themselves in- to an association, and have held several meetings in different parts of the dis- trict, the last of these at Lane's Res- taurant, Mountain Ash. There was a very satisfactory gathering, includ- ing Mrs. Grier, Mrs. Pugne, Mrs. Davies, Mr. Peters, Mr. Badham, be- sides other representatives from Mis- kin, Penrhiwceiber, Abercynon, Aber- aman, and Aberdare. All were agreed that the newspaper trade in the Aber- dare valley required as much unification and federation as any trade, and ex- pressed the opinion that this association has not been formed too soon. Much4 dissatisfaction was expressed at the action of library committees in the dis- trict sending round for estimates and rebates on the supply of newspapers and magazines. Several instances were mentioned of wholesalers who have branches in the district now supplying some of the libraries at a lower figure than that charged those newsagents who got their supplies through them. Many a shilling book is being sold over the counter by these wholesalers for 9d., but when a newsagent happens to get an order for a similar book, and the same sent along with his weekly order sheet to the very same wholesalers, he will be charged lOd. for it. And he has to pay carriage for all his supplies! Members of library committees should, KI all conscience, consider the welfare of the small local ratepayer in prefer- ence to those who take away their profits to places outside the district. It is greatly to be hoped that with a strong organisation much of this in- justice will be removed on appeal to the best in the humanity of book- buyers. Organisations are now being established all over the country, ana these again federate and expand in all directions. A joint committee has been formed of representatives of this and the Rhondda Valleys Union, and much is to be expected from this movement in the near future. It may be of in- terest to the readers of the "Aberdare Leader" that its terms to newsagents are already what the United Kingdom Federation of Newsagents, Booksellers and Stationers is now fighting for throughout the land, and is therefore on a par with the foremost exponents of fairplay to the "bottom dogs," and abreast of the "Daily News and Leader," "Daily Citizen," "Daily Her- ald," "Yorkshire Record," "Bradford Citizen," the "Labour Leader," and others. This goes to prove that the "Aberdare Leader" is leader not only in name but in deed. G.E.
