ST. A1 ARK'S MISSION. At this place of worship on Sunday evening the service was conducted' by Messrs T. G. Chivers, D. Tasker, and G. Lee. Mrs II. -AT. Jones presided at the harmonium- LOCAL WIN.

At the evening service the Canticles were sung to Smart in G. The Rev. D. J. Rowland, B.A., officiated and preached. SEION (W.). "And for the love of the spirit" (Romans xv. 30). These were the words from which the Rev. H. O. Hughes preached a powerful discourse on Sunday evening last. The love of the spirit was a, question which was neglected to-day by the pulpiteer, the essayist, the musician, and even by the poet. Only once he had ever heard a sermon on this subject. He knew of no hell other than the one in the sinner's heart. INTERAIENT. On Friday one of Aberdar^'s oldest tradesmen, the late Ir. Fred Wiltshire, fruiterer, was laid to rest in the Cemetery. He had lived in retirement many years in Whit- combe Street, and only survived his wife a fortnight or so. He was a Churchman and Conservative of the non-militant type. Outside his business his hobby was horses; he always kept a racehorse, and was himself a fine judge of a horse. The Rev. H. G. Griffith, B.A., officiated at the house and grave- side. TABERNACLE. The preacher at Tabernacle Congregational Church on Sunday was the Rev. J. T. Evans, Glyn Neath. At the morning service he first of all addressed the children, giving them some practical advice by means of an apt illustration. Air. Evans took as the text of his sermon, 1. Cor. ii. 16. But we have the mind of Christ." His subject was "The influence of mind on character," dealing specifically with Christ's mind as an influential factor. If we wanted to obtain the greatest plea- sure in life let us take the mind of Christ as an ideal to copy. TEACHERS' MEETING. — A meet- ing of the local branch of the N.F.C.T. was held in the Town Council School on Tuesday evening, Air. Tom Thomas, president, in the chair. It was decided to support the candidature of Mr. ITnderdown, Bristol, as vice-president of the N.D.T., and Mr. Barraelough, Leeds, as vice-president of the N.F.C.T. It was agreed that if a sufficient number could be obtained a circular trip to y- Svmond's Yat be arranged early in July. The Hockey Club was allowed to sever its connection from the N.F.C.T. Miss M. A. Edwards, B.A., presented a re- port on the conference of Welsh teachers in Cardiff, Saturday, May 9.

After the programme the C.T. expressed pleasure at the return of Sister Price, and welcomed Bros. Griffiths and Lam- pard, who spoke on juvenile work. It was resolved that the two brothers be requested to secure a room and re-or- ganise the Juvenile Temple. On fine evenings the Lodge will take country rambles instead of remaining in the Lodge room. FIRE. — A fire broke out in the navrow yard at the back of Messrs Pugh and Co.'s drapery shop in Victoria Square on Monday. Trade refuse had been burnt during the day, and it ap- pears that smouldering ashes were left there. Later on it was discovered that some cases had caught fire and were burning furiously. Mr. P. N. Pugh and his brother applied one of Pearson's fire-extinguishers, and they were sup- plied with two more from Mr. R. L. Berry's premises. In the meantime the Aberdare Fire Brigade had been sum- lnoned. and they reached the spot in a remarkably short space of time. The fire, however, had been got under with the aid of the fire-extinguishers referred to, but the members of the Brigade ren- dered service in sifting the burnt ar- bell's, et. SHOP ASSISTANTS' RAMBLE. Fine weather and full enjoyment marked the opening ramble on Thursday last. A muster of nearly 40 booked at Aberdare for Penderyn via Hirwain, and eventually reached the Lamb Hotel, taking the tram road. on which a game <> of "golf on a very lavish scale was parta.ken of. After visiting the hotel we sojourned to an adjoining field to plav cricket. A" team batted first, reaching something short of a century. The chief feature of the game v/as the batting of Messrs. Toms and Hill for the A" team, and our old and esteemed comrade, "Pritch" for the "B" team. The "B" team made rather a poor start against big odds, but eventu- ally reached half the total of "A" team's score. After a pleasant game we returned to the Lamb to tea. After tea there was a game of rounders, in which the ladies took part. A short game of football was also played, a feature of which was the goal-keeping of one of :>ur lady-members. After spending one of the most enjoyable Thursday half- holidays we arrived back at ."Sweet Berdar about ten o'clock, and for the first time that half-day our hearts dropped, for alas, we had to part com- pany. All regretted the paucity of lady members attending this ramble. Will the ladies attend these weekly outilap in future? If they will, our rambles ure bound to prove successful and ,pro- ductive of happiness.—Our ramble on this day (Thursday) will be to Cross Byclian. Starting-place, end of Tram Road by the Cottage Hospital. Time, 2.30. Come in crowds. ABERDARE EMPLOYEES 1)1 NED.— On Friday evening the whole of the employees ot the Town Brewery were entertained at the Red Lion Hotel, Aberdare. A capital dinner was pro- vided by Host and Hostess Compton. The after-dinner proceedings were pre- sided over by Air. S. H. Shaw, who was supported by Messrs. F. G. Radford, R. Ramage, and George White. Mr. F. G. Radford proposed the toast of the Aberdare Valley Breweries. It pleased him, he said, to see the good feeling existing between employers and em- played. The success of the firm was en- tirely in their hands, and it was not a question of being "A.l" at Lloyds, but A. 1" at Aberdare. Every one of them in their individual capacity had the chance of furthering the interests of the brewery as well as their own.—Mr White, in (seconding, said it. gave him great pleasure to be honoured with the seconding of the toast that Air. Rad- ford had so ably proposed, and hoped that the staff would co-operate with the officials to bring the Town Brewery to tIP one of the most successful in Wales. Ir. Shaw, who had a splendid reception, responded. He said they had met to- gether to celebrate the opening of the Aberdare Valley Breweries—the only brewery in Aberdare. During the time lie had been amongst them matters had gone very smoothly, and he felt that the whole of the staff were his friends. He asked them to assist him in the man- agement in the best way they could. Individually and collectively they couH do a great deal. He thanked them for their kind expressions towards him, and would do all in his power to further their interests as well as those of their em- T)Iov(,i,s. -.Nfr- Ramage and Mr. J. BriHaiti (Allsopps) also addressed the meetino;. The rest of the evening wa, devoted to a musical entertainment.

ial in all classes of literature. The allocation of the rate just received was only £4 10s. more than the previous year, whilst the balance in hand at the beginning of last year was nearly wiped out by the end of the year. This year it was anticipated that on account of the District Council refusing a 2u. library rate there would be a deficit, and the library would have to curtail its useful- ness considerably unless the Institute members would again come to its sup- port. It was resolved to ask the In- stitute Committee to allow their new manager, Mr. H. Vause, to act as librarian in issuing books and exercising general supervision as far as possible.— Mr. Handel Harris was appointed chair- man; Mr. William Collier, vice-chair- man; Mr. J. Morgan, minute secre- tary, and Mr. W. W. Price was re- elected hon. secretary. The following were elected to serve on tb committee: Messrs. G. Wilcox, Phil Jones. William Daniels, G. Reddick, Rev". H. P. Jen- kins. E. C. Catnble, and E J. Parry, curate, with power to co-opt others in- cluding ladies.—It was decided to ask the general public to assist the new Commitee on the detection of offenders who maliciously injure and pilfer maga- zines. The price of the new catalogue is 3d. This has been compiled by Mr. W. W. Price, hon. secretary and hon. librarian, who has acted in such cap- acity since the formation of the library.
