Snaps from the Cinemas. BY "SNTP." Scene: Duke Street, Aberdare. Time: Wednesday, 2 p.m. Messrs. Old Haggar and Clarke's the Man motoring together to Cardilf. Bless 'em. Everyone at some time or other has had that feeling I of relief from tooth- ache when arriving at the dentist's door. Evidently the young lady who dropped the following missive on the stairs must have been nervous:— Wednesday, April 22, 1914. Dear Miss Williams, I just send these few lines hoping to find you all right as it leaves me in the pink, hop- ing you will be waiting me down by Jacobs' Pawnshop at half-pass six to go to the Cinama with me on Thursday night. I think I must close my letter or else I shall have nothing to tell you when I see you.—Yours truly, love, SAMMIE. It is pleasing to notice that some of I the picture palaces are leaving just suffi- cient light turned up to avoid those nasty cases lately heard in our Police Courts.
Aberdare Cinema. As will be seen from the advertise- ment above, Clarke's the Man has another gigantic programme for next week. He leaves no stone unturned and spares no expense, to appeal suc- icessftilly to his multitude of patrons. The "Aberdare Cinema" and "Clarke's the Man" are phrases that have be- come synonymous. The one means the i other and are quite inseparable. Just a glance through next week's bill of fare is enough to prove to the veriest layman in picture theatres that there is something to be had when you Ii-e paid your money at the entrance. Clarke's the Man makes no doubt about the matter, and trusts to the splendid insight of Aberdarians to appreciate his efforts and give him bumper houses during the week. On Monday, Tues- day and Wednesday, the beautiful drama. "The Mystery of St. Martin's Bridge" holds pride of place. It is laid in the home of the pa.,sions-Italv. The stury is of Lord Martagne, who wins the heart of Cora, a mountain girl, and then casts her aside. Cora seeks revenge, but is foiled. Many passion- ate scenes follow, and the climax is reached when the girl disguised fights a duel with the nobleman and kills him. Another couple are convicted of the murder, but Cora confesses at the last moment.—Those who have followed the history of the famous Loftus family will be pleased to hear that the ex- clusive film, A lady of quality," has been secured by Clarke's the Man. Miss Cecilia Loftus, the daughter of that great Vaudeville artiste, Miss Marie Loftus, takes the leading part. The story runs how Sir Jeoffrey, a dis- solute rogue, hears of the arrival of another female child in his family. He ignores her and does not come in con- tact with the child—Clorinda—until her sixth year. She is playing with his powder horn and he upbraids her. She picks up a hunting crop and in her tiny wrath beats Sir Jeoffrey. Her spirit and daring attract him. and he decides to dress her as a boy. Years go by and still dressed in masculine attire, her notoriety reaches London, and Sir John Oxon, the beau ideal of the town, lays a wager that he will win the heart of Clo, not as a hoyden but as a woman. She is stung by his banter and chal- lenges him to a duel in which Oxon is worsted. Clo announces her decision to discard male attire and Oxon wins his wager. His short-lived triumph, how- ever, opens up a new phase in the drama. Clo hears of his boasting and transfers her affection to Lord Dunstan- wolde. At his death Oxon forces his attention on her; and becomes so in- tolerable that she strikes him with her hunting crop and he falls dead at her feet. She hides the body and ends her life in self-imposed expiation. The usual Saturday Matinee will be con- tinued.
Glyn Neath Police Cases. Police Disguise—Wyndham Davies, bookmaker, Glyn Neath, and William Brewer and Gwilym Thomas, colliers, were charged at Neath County Police Court on Friday with street betting at Glyn Neath on the 29th ult. Mr. Trevor Hunter (instructed by Mr. Matthew Arnold) appeared for the de- fendants.—Police Sergeant Morgan said that he saw Thomas receive five and Brewer two slips from men coming along the road, and Davies take slips from several men at different times. When charged with street betting, Brewer replied I do a bit, you know. These are last week's slips. I do a bit of booking on my own sometimes, but not to-day." Thomas replied: "Y 0\1 didn't find any slips on me. I never acted as a 'bookie,' but I admit 1 did a bit for Wyndham to-day." Police- Constable Evans said that when charged Davies answered, "All right. 1 quite understand." Cross-examined: Both witness and Police Sergeant Morgan wore old clothes, and had dirtied their faces.—Defendants were each fined 40s. and costs. A Brutal Assault.-D. Owen, William Hickey, and Edward Matthews, all of Glyn Neath, pleaded guilty to assault- ing David Phillips, timekeeper at the Aberpergwm Colliery, on May 1. Mr. Jeffreys said the only cause that could be suggested for the outrage was that Phillips had that day at the colliery charged Hickery 6d. for a pay-ticket which he had lost.—" After seeing a friend home on the night of the 1st inst. continued Mr Jeffreys, the defendants waylaid complainant, say- ing, 'Here's Phillips, the timey; we'll give him a hiding.' They then fell upon him, maltreating him to such an extent that he had been ill ever since. The only redeeming feature was that deiendants had apologised to complain- ant and expressed deep regret. In reply to the Bench, Supt. Evans said that Hickey at Maidstone had been sen- tenced to six months for shop-breaking. vlr W. A. Leyson pleaded for leniency for the two other youths.—Owen and Matthews were fined 40s. and costs, and Hickey was sent to prison for a month, with hard labour. Detonators in Mine.-Howell Davies, shot firer, employed at the British Rhondda Colliery, Glynneath, and liv- ing at Rhigos, was summoned for fail- ing to keep detonators, used for the charging of a shot-hole in a suitable locked box, and separate from the other explosives. A tin containing the de- tonators was found in the mine.—De- fendant was fined 20s. and costs.

General sympathy is extended to the bereaved widow and daughter. CHECKWEIGHER AND COLLIERS. —On the application of Mr. C. Ken- shole, of Aberdare, the Swansea County Bench on Wednesday granted a sum- mons against Philip D. Rees, a check- weigher, at Brynllwyd Colliery, Gor- seinon, formerly of Aberaman, to show cause why he should not be removed for alleged interference with the work- men at the colliery.
ABERDARE. BAND OF HOPE. — The Aberdare Deanery Bands of Hope formed a pro- cession last Monday evening and marched to St. Margaret's Church, Aberaman, where an interesting address was given by the Rev. Dewi Williams, B.A., vicar of Hirwain, on the words, "Fight the good ighf OBITUARY. The death of Mr. Frederick Rowe, of Birchgrove, Usk, took place at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. W. H. Roberts, Elm Grove, Aberdare, on Sunday morning, the 10th inst. Mr. Rowe was a native of Combemartin, and came to Aberdare some 41 years ago. At one time he was attached to the Aberdare Post Office, and afterwards the County Court. Sub- sequently he carried on a very success- ful business at Aberaman as iron- monger and furniture dealer. His en- ergy, enterprise, and foresight were proverbial, and early in life he culti- vated a hobby for building. The out- come of his energies fructified in his achieving his youthful ambition-that of giving work to his school chums. Combemartin, therefore, was to be his chief field of labour, and it was to Combemartin he retired some eight years ago. Having youthfully accom- plished his ambition, it was impossible for him to remain in a state of in- ertia. Two years ago he removed to Birchgrove, Usk, to take up farming. Here he worked like a Trojan. Be died in harness and in the midst of his plans. On Wednesday his mortal re- mains were laid to rest at Usk Church- yard. The Revs. Thomas Edmunds, B.A., Carmel, Aberdare; D. Roberts, Senghenydd, and P. L. C. Nash, Rector of Usk, officiated. The bearers were: Messrs. Z. Andrews, R. L. Berry, G. Bracchi, J. A. Evans, L. Eschle, Matt. Lewis, J. W. Kineman (Pontypridd), and Illtyd Williams. Among others present were: Messrs. Grffith T. Davies, solicitor; E. Halewood, D. Davies, A. Griffiths, A. Watkins, T. Thomas; and E. Beynon and L. J. Owen representing the Post Office Indoor and Outdoor Staffs respectively. Floral tributes were received from Mrs. F. Rowe, wife; Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Roberts, daughter and son-in-law; Freddie. Ronald, Emerson, and Dervk, grandsons; Miss Carr, Bronygarn, Maesteg. A striking testimony of the high opinion in which the deceased was held was the large number who accompanied the body to Usk. General sympathy is expressed with his wife and daughter and font grandsons. <
PENYWAIN. WEDDING. On Tuesday morning last a very pretty wedding was solemn- ised at Ebenezer (Cong.) Chapel, the Rev. J. Grawys Jones (pastor) officiating. The contracting parties were Mr. Thomas Howell Luke, the son of Mr. and Mrs. William Luke, 1 Gamblyn Terrace, Penywain, and Miss Annie Jones, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Rees Jones, Penywain. Mr. David Luke, brother to bridegroom, acted as best man, and Mr. Rees Jones, brother of bridcv, gave her away. After the ceremony a sumptuous repast was par- taken of at the bride's home. Later in the day the newly-married couple left for Swansea.

MOUNTAIN ASH. TRIUMPH, Douglas, and Bradbury Motor-cycles and Cycles.—Parker Bros., Aberdare. DEPARTURE.—Mr Wm. Morgan, M.E., The Poplars, left Mountain Ash this week to take up his new appoint- ment at Abertillery. VICAR PRESENTED.—On Saturday evening a meeting of the Church Bene- fit Society was held in the Parish Room. In the absence of Col. Morgan, J.P., Mr Tudor Davies, M.E., presided. He was supported by Bros. A. Phillips D.G.W.; J. K. Brooks, Sec.; T. Par- fitt, and C. Simmonds, Medal of Honour Members. The Rev. J. Sinnett Jones, M.A., has been Grand Warden of the Duffryn Lodge for 12 years, and in re- cognition of his splendid service during that period it was decided to honour him with a presentation before he left the district. The gifts took the form of an American chair and a silver-mounted pipe. Mr Tudor Davies, in handing the fhalr to the Vicar, spoke of his kindness to them all, especially at the time of the Society's annual meeting held in the Mount JO years ago, also at their Sun- day Parade in aid of the District Nurs- ing Fund. He hoped that in Caerwys he would enjoy good health and also en- joy his chair and pipe. Bro. Alfred Phillips presented the Vicar with the pipe. Bros. J. K. Brooks, Parfitt, C. Simmonds, Gibbons and Sear also spoke. The Vicar, responding, thanked them all for their kindness, and offered a heartv welcome to any of the Duffryn Lodge members if they came to North Wales ST. JOHN AMBULANCE.—On Wed- nesday evening a meeting of the local branch of the St. John Ambulance Bri- gade entertained Dr. Llewelyn Wil- liams, medical officer of health, to sup- per at the Glancynon Hotel. After the good things provided by Host and Host- ess Lewis were put away Mr Jesse Lewis presided over a happy company. including the following: Messrs. Evan Evans, Arthur Morgan, W. J. Griffiths, P.S. Dan Griffith, Wm. Lakeman, Mor- gan Morgan, Wm. J. Evans, Wm. J. Powell, Wm. Waters, David Masters, Sam Maxworthy, Tim Richards, P.C. Geo. Williams, P.S. Rd. Beynon, Geo. Harris, J. Brennan, N. Pomeroy, J. Gregor, David Jenkins, Fred Brooks C. Cook, P.C. Ewington, P.C. Hand- cock, Herbert Dobbs, 1. J. Beecham, Rd. Morgan, Willie Sanders, Charlie Sloper, P.C. Clarkson, Denis Creedon, Emlyn Williams, and Luther Lewis. It was announced that 27 candidates in the doctor's class had sat for examination, and all had passed, in fact in the doc- tor's four classes 73 sat and not less than 66 had passed. P.S. Griffiths, ris- ing to make a presentation of a hand- somely framed photo of the remarkably successful class, said that police speeches were usually short, as they were often followed by long sentences. However, he couldn't refrain from charging the doctor with being a suc- cessful lecturer. He had through the past winter given his time to make the Caegarw Class fit, and right well he had done it. The doctor was responsible for the bill of health for a population of 42,000, and also an officer in His Majesty's Territorial forces, so it was no light thing for him to undertake the teaching of their class. He (the speaker) had heard it said that the Mountain Ash Detachment was one of the smartest on parade.—Dr. Williams, responding, thanked them all for their kindness, but he felt that their success was due to Mr Jesse Lewis and Mr Evan Evans. They had all worked hard, and it had been a pleasure to work with them, for every one had taken the deepest interest in what they had to do. He hoped to hold the class for many years to come, and thanked them all again for their kind words which he would never forget. Police Inspector T. Davies said it gave him extreme pleasure to see the doctor honoured. He hoped that that gathering was the first of many to follow. He was espec- ially delighted to know of the success of the Police Class, and as the force was adding to its numbers he hoped that it would be equally successful.—Mr. Lake- man felt that they all appreciated the time and labour which the doctor had expended upon them. He would like to impress upon the members the words of the Act of Parliament, which stated dis- tinctly that the members should be "trained men." This point might with advantage be thought of by the colliery officials, who should look to it that there were trained men always at hand.—Mr Cooke thanked the doctor for the ex- periences he had gone through and wished him every sucess.—Inspector T. Rees proposed the toast of the press, and Mr Arthur Morgan seconded.—Mr Fred Allen ("Aberdare Leader") re- sponded.—Mr D. S. Lewis responded to the toast of the Host and Hostess Mr Wr J. Griffiths. secretary, extended a hearty welcome to the drills in Caegarw. During the evening Messrs Ewington, Cooke, Fred Allen and Richards added to the harmony. PASTOR WELCOMED. — gathering was that at Bethlehem Vestry last Thursday to welcome newly-appointed pastor, the Rev. J. «• Evans, B.A.. B.D.

PENRHI WCEIBER. PERSONAL. Mr. David Keen, Os- borne Hotel, is progressing favourably after his recent illness. NEW GUARDIAN. On Monday evening an excellent meeting was held in the Infants' School to congratulate Miss M Phillips-J ones on having been elected unopposed as a member of the Board of Guardians as successor to the late Guardian John Williams. Mr. Daniel Thomas presided. Mr. Mor- gan Morgan proposed a vote of confi- dence in the Lady Guardian, and was seconded by the Rev. D. Lloyd. Miss Jones Tose, and gave an excellent speech. She mentioned the method she means to adopt in order to carry out the office with efficiency. The course was cordially endorsed by the meeting by a general applause.—Dr. B. Phillips- Jones gave an address in the same strain as Miss Jones. He pointed out that the most needy were not always the ones that were looked after. Some possessed hilden sense of honour, which was hard to break through to ask for re- lief. These should secure the attention of the Guardians. He hoped that the Lady Guardian present would consider every case on its own merits, and not allow any favouritism to enter the arena.—Mr. Christopher Bowen pro- posed a vote of thanks to the -Lady Guardian; also to Dr. B. Phillips-Jones for attending the meeting.—This was seconded by Mr. Benbow, who remarked how the Tanybryn family had played their part in the welfare of the town.- The following spoke also: Messrs John Carr, David Keen, James Griffiths, John Davies, John Reynolds (secretary). A poem of praise was read by Mr. Christo- pher Bowen.
ABERCYNON. NEW BRIDGE. — A new footbridge has been erected by the Pontypridd District Council across the river near the Mill Farm on the Pontypridd Road, j connecting the Pontypridd Road with a path leading to the fields of the I Albion Colliery. This bridge will afford a short cut to men working at the Cilfynydd Collieries, and living at Carnetown. The bridge is of steel girder work, about 50 yards long, and I rests on two buttresses and a parapet in the centre. MINING COMPETITIONS. Com- petitions in shot-firing, timbering, cogging, and gobbing, limited to stu- dents of classes recognised by the Education Committee of the Glamor- gan County Council, took place on the Dowlais-Cardiff Colliery premises on Saturday morning last. There was a record number of entries, there being 15 entries fo the shot-firing compe- tition; 8 teams for the timbering, and 19 teams for the cogging and gobbing contests. The judges were: Shot-firing, Mr. H. H. Evans, M.E., Cilfynydd; timbering and walling, Mr. Tudor Davies, M.E., Abercynon, and Mr. T. Williams, M.E., Nixon's Navigation, Mountain Ash. The local management had placed all facilities as far as pre- mises and materials were concerned at the disposal of the competitors. The competitions were superintended by members of the County Council, and Mr. Henry Davies, Director of Mining, was present. A prize was offered by Mr. T. Price, of the Main Collieries, for the best criticism by competitors of the work done. The work done on Satur- day was considered very satisfactory. The results will be made known after the various judges have reported to the County Mining Committee.
PENRHI WCEIBER MINERS. Addressed by Mrs. D. Watts Morgan. At Penrhiwceiber on Monday a miners mass meeting was addressed by Mr Fred Hall, M.P., Barnslev, and the Federation resolution was carried una- nimously. Mr Morgan Rees (the lodge president) occupied the chair. Mrs. D. Watts Morgan, wife of the Rhondda* Miners Agent, proposing a vote of thanks, made a speech, whifch was greeted with loud applause. She de- scribed the Federation as the backbone of the industry, and she urged them to unite in making it still more effective so that they would have something to lean upon to support them in times of stress and trouble. (Hear, hear.) Her way of dealing with the non-Unionists would be to refuse to work with them, and in that way they would soon elimin- ate them from their midst. (Applause.) The question was often asked: What had the Federation done? But what could they expect for a paltry shilling a month? Her view was that the mem- bers got far more out of it than ever they paid in. If they were not pre- pared to unite and strengthen their organisation, then they deserved to put up with the consequences.—The meet- ing was also addressed by Mr John Thomas, B.A., Aberdare.
