Aberdare Tramway Troubles. Cursed or Bfessed? Council Members and Mr. Sellon. The report in last week's "Leader" of the condemnation of a large portion of the Tramways contract caused consider- able consternation, and was the general topic of conversation in Aberdare and district during the week-end. The defective work referred to, it should be noted, does not include the laying of the track proper, i.e., the rails, but it included the stone setts at various points between Aberaman Church and the Town Hall. Some of the poles and a small portion of the cable were also condemned. The question asked by the Councillors when Mr. Stephen Sellon's letter was read on Monday week was: How is it that all this information was not furn- ished sooner, and why was it that the Tramway contractors were not told sc L before they had practically completed the work? It was in this critical spirit that the Council met at a special sitting two days later (Wednesday, July 16th). Judging by the tone and threatening attitude of some of the Councillors, nothing less than Mr. Sellon's head brought in on a charger would appease their anger. They had been longing to meet him for weeks, and he had been so elusive as to escape them on every occasion he visit- ed Aberdare. But now the chance had come. The Council chairman, Mr. T. Walter Williams, was spoiling for a fight, and remarked at the very outset of the meeting when he noticed a press- man in the room We will resolve our- selves into a committee, gentlemen, in order to get a little more laxity of rule," much after the manner of a boxer eagei for the fray and asking for the ring to be cleared. Mr. A. P. Jones, also, had something to say to Mr. Sellon, for the meeting was really convened for Wednesday evening for his convenience. Mr. D. R. Llewelyn and others were ready to second the attacks of Messrs. T. Walter Williams and A. P. Jones should necessity arise. In short every- one present expected about as warm and acrid a discussion as had ever taken place inside that room. However, the meeting turned out tc be most harmonious. Mr. Sellon made a long statement that he had visited the district monthly; that he had noted the defects from time to time; that he had reported them to Messrs. William Griffiths arid Co., the contractors; that he had withheld certificates of payment pending the remedying of same; that all this would not delay the trams; that the Power Station was in a progressive state; that all the various paraphern- alia, including the tramcars, were at hand, and that at the very latest they would be seen, heard and felt in the first week of September. What more did they want? Hushed was the voice of criticism silenced was every would-be questioner, and all those who came to curse remained to bless, for the Council passed a resolution "that Mr. Sellon had done all in his power to facilitate the completion of the contract.
--¥- The Reflector. BY "HYPNOB." Who is the King Street gent who, on seeing the minister, thrust the lighted pipe into his pocket ? Our minister, you see, is not willing for us to smoke," were the words he uttered to a neigh- bour. Window blinds were meant to be 1ra.wn upon retiring at night. Evident- ly a few Gospel Hallites and Tudor Ferraceites are not aware of that. Light attracts the eye. Mrs ——, of Gadlys Street, does not ft-ash her face. The excuse is there's no water in the tap after 5.30 p.m." But it has not been so ever since Christ- mas. Who is the young lady who took two hours to dress because she was going to see a new boy? Trecynon. A Llwydcoed last-, carries in her hand- bag a powder-puff. Puff-puff. Oh, yes, the pom. Why don't you :eaeh it rag-time. Start it off with— Pom, pom, diddle-e-om-pom, pom. Everything is rag-time Ahi-, week. A line of Trecynon jirls, who visited the Empire, were walking home in rag- ;ime. They cannot be blamed. The jutcher, the baker, the candlestick naker—in fact, everybody's doing it. Next we'll see the ministers preaching n rag-time, and the ragmen gathering heir rags in the same time. Who is the Cwmdare boy who went to Swansea without money and without )rice? He had left his purse at home. A has got quite a large sum of money towards the tram fares. He'll have a lot more by the time he'll want to use it. I'm writing these notes in rag-time. You've got a lot to answer for, Mr Norton. Everybody's doing it now." A Cwmdare miss attracted a.

Cwmdare and Llwydcoed especially. > A certain lass can do without food on Sunday. U Only to be out with John I'm quite satisfied." A certain young (?) ladv in Cwmda.rp amused herself by reading the love letters she had received during her courting period of auld lang svne. Old memories are sweet. Whv not add to your charms by walking rag-time? Oh! go hon with you., that' not rag- time. That motor-cycle very nearly toppled you over, G-. H It was 'wobbling something awful."

At the evening service the Canticles were sung to Stainer's harmonised Gregorian rones. TVIB Vionr officiated and preached. PERSONAL. — At York Street Uni- tarian Church, Belfast, a fortnight ago, a farewell meeting was held in honour of Rev. John Dare Davies, son of Mr and Mrs Evan Davies, Trevor Street, Aberdare. Mr Davies has accepted a call from a neighbouring Unitarian Church. At the meeting referred to a handsome roll-top desk was presented to him bv the ladies of the congregation. Rev. H. J. Rossington, B.D., presided, and many speakers joined in expressing the deep regret which is felt at parting with Mr Davies. In his reply Mr Davies thanked the congregation for all the kindness that had been shown him dur- ing his ministry. He reminded them that he was not going very far away, and expressed the hope that they might often meet together again in the future. In conclusion, he thanked them for their useful present. A programme of music and recitations followed the pre- sentation. HIGHLAND PLACE. In the course of an extrpmelv able sermon on Sunday morning, the Rev. E. T. Evans, the ne1^ pastor, said that wo are all sons atid daughters of God. The bad man was a bad son of God, and the sinner was a sinful son, and there was always a help- in" hand extended to them to become good and dutiful sons. There was an unfathomable denth of goodness in God, but in spite of all we could, as it were, put our arms Tound his neck and look -up into His loving eyes. It was said that this way of regarding God was too much like creating God after our own image. How could it be otherwise? it was a constant process in the history of humanity. At one time God was a mighty warrior, then a king, then a judge, then a God of righteousness, while Jesus revealed him as a God of love. All these were human qualities read into God by the mind of man. Jesus revealed God as love because he had experienced the love of a human father and mother, and he asked himself the question, "Where i its source?" Its source and origin was God, Divinity and humanity were one. CARMEL (B.). On Sunday last the occupant of the pulpit of Carmel English Baptist Church was the Rev. E. Worth- ing, of Swansea. At the evening ser- vice his text was John iv. 7, a veree in the narrative of Christ's interview with the woman of Samaria. One writer had called the gospel of John "the gospel of private interviews." One of these was the accidental interview with the woman at the well in Samaria. Her meeting with Christ gave this woman a new out- look and a new aspect of life. This chance meeting resulted in a newness of life for the woman. She was brought face to face with Christ, then with her- self. and finally with her neighbours. Christ did more than iise the oppor- tunity here; he created it. It was con- sidered impious by the Jews lor a man to teach a woman in the law, and even to speak to a Samaritan. But Christ, although he was, so to speak, off duty" at the time of his sojourn in Samaria, went out of his way, not only to speak to this social outcast, but also to administer her spiritual solace. Christ had the spiritual discernment that penetrates into the heart of men, and on this occasion the heart of the sinner's friend went out to this outcast woman. Christ often violated conven- tion and defied propriety. The Master would risk anything, to save and bless a weary soul. In this instance he first conversed with the woman about physi- cal thirst, and led her along the path of parable to the great question of the -thirst of the soul. Eventually the woman casts away her haughty sarcasm, and becomes a humble supplicant. Then the Saviour lays his hand upon the re- proach of her life, and points out to her the necessity of righting the wrong in her character. It was Christ alone that could satisfy the hunger and thirst of the soul. During the service Professor Tom Jones presided at the organ. THE BROTHERHOOD. The Aber- dare Brotherhood's open Sunday meeting was held at the English Wesleyan Church on Sunday afternoon. After the weekly lesson, which was taken from Acts xvii., was read. Miss Megan Davies, Aberdare, gave a beautiful rendering of the contralto solo, "Comfort." Mr A. E. Harmston presided at the organ, and Mr Ruston was'leader of the orchestra. The Rev. J. Ellis, president of the class, spoke on H Paul's friends and foes," and there were several topical hits in his address. Some people thought, he said, that the Bible was not a revelation— that there was a lot of other stuff mixed up with God's revelation. But the Apostle Paul believed it to be a real re- velation of God. The New Testament paid some attention to women. Would they find anything mentioned to the credit of women in literature con- temporaneous with the New Testa- ment? Many honourable women, it was stated, believed the doctrines as taught bv Paul. Proceeding, Mr Ellis traced the origin of Thessolonica, and ex- plained how the town received its name. Thessolonica was a democratic city, ruled by the common people. If the peo- ple—the ratepayers—called a meeting there, and instructed their rulers (the Council) to carry out certain work or desist from performing certain work, they would be bound to obey.. They dared not ignore the wishes of the people as the little tin gods of to-day fre- quently did. Nothing in the nature of disobedience to the will of the people could happen in Thessolonica. We would have to come to Aberdare for things like that. Continuing, Mr Ellis dealt with St. Paul's long tramp from city to city, and his determination to preach the gospel, and the splendid fight he had made for his Master.
