Some parents appeared to be amused rather than shocked by the profanity of their ohildren. The secretary, Mr Johm Evans, dealt with the question, should total abstinence be a condition of mem- bership in the Churches ? He took the affirmative view. He, however, contend- ed that there were in our churches greater evils than even intemperance. H would not say that the home of every temperate person was a paradise. Non-fermented wine ought to be on all communion tables. One judge had said that if the drink were abolished the doors of the Divorce Courts could be closed. Lord Coleridge had remarked that nearly 50 per cent, of the crime in our land was caused by drink. There was a very strong case for making total abstinence a condition of church mem- bership. The Revs. J. B. Davies and M. Jenkins addressed the meeting on "Good behaviour in the house of God" and "The Sanctity of the Sabbath."

MEMS. FROM THE MOUNT. I saw a handbill (privately) stating that "owing to the present drought the watei would be cut off from the hour of so and so to so and so." This was the day after we'd had 24 hours rain. What a wet blanket! I hear that the Cosmo. Club members have found a real "White Hope." Let soap he'll change the colour of the black face. Partridge not much good for shunting. Hook it. Mugbridge failed to appear at Pontv- pool. The transfer terms are not ar- ranged. It's to be hoped the fee is not as high as Miskin Hill. Did anybody see Bill Newport and Curtain dancing a light fantastic Pi The long and short of it. A certain lodger swore that his land- ladv had put wheels on the legs of his bedstead. I suppose if he wanted to oil those wheels it would be "castor" oil. Jack Shea wanted a trip in the U Airy- plane" and didn't mind being killed. "because his name would be in the J--a der. No need to go to La Belle France for courtesy. As Mons Salmet came down in his flying machine, Willie Greenwood's band struck up The Marsellaise," Vive 1 entente cordiale. Edwin saw 3 little men wearing Car- son s Covenant Badge and wanted to kill them and burn their badges. When 3 S1X fT™ters came in with the same bad- ges Edwin was anxious to know if thev were relatives of his. How's that like this Jimmy? Another Bird. Where the seaweed grows. Wait and see and then you'll hear the Nape Band at the Carnival. John Jeff, John Jeff. John Jeff at ther Napiers. John Jeff, John Jeff, John Jen at the fee rapiers. He's here, He's there, He's every- where. J John Jeff's old band at the Napiers. f T niVr1 Sf quiet that a babr from Phillip Street will win at the Carnival. Very well then.
Scraps. BY THE SCRIBE." Now the cry is not "Early Closing" or Early Shopping," but Early holi- days." I notice that the G.W.R. Co. are doing all .in their power to facili- tate this highly desired object. Educa- tion Authorities and teachers can do a lot to abolish the August holiday rush. If the teachers take their holidays earl- ier the children will, and the parents also. And all the people-railway com- panies, hotel and boarding house keepers, and all concerned in the great holiday problem—will say Amen." I notice that the Aberdare Education Authority are going to move in the matter next year. They believe in hastening slowly and breaking gently the news of pro- posed reform. So they give a year's notice. Addresses to children at Sunday morn- ing services are getting popular. They are alright except when they substitute the sermon. When feeding the spiritual babes with the milk of the Word the fare of the adults should not be forgot- ten. It is not pleasant occupation for a hungry man to look on at a lot of children feeding. A "kill that fly" campaign has been decided on by the St. Helens, Lanca- shire, Healtlj, Committee, and operations will be conducted by the school children of the town during the summer. The mayor has offered to give a prize to the most successful school, and probably weekly prizes wil also be given. What a splendid object lesson on cruelty to animals! Frank Henry March Lenn, the six- teen-year-old son of a fleit paymaster, died from an injury to his left hand re- ceived while stopping a fast ball at a Christ Hospital (Horsham) cricket match. At the inquest, when the ver- dict of Accidental death" was return- ed, death was attributed to blood-poi- soning. The blow caused the growth of bacillus, already present in the body. The Aberdare District Council still al- low cricket to be played in the Public Park, althougji they prohibited football. Yet the cricket ball is the more danger- ous to players and spectators. I have been informed that on a recent Sunday at a Sunday School quarterly meeting at Aber- aman a comic song was sung. Well I always thought the line of demar- cation between sacred and secular was very sharply drawn at Aberaman. That Welsh drama and its infidelity again.
Two Inquests at Cwmbach. Woman Drops Dead at Aberaman. Two inquests were held at Cwmbach on Wednesday morning, before Mr R. J. Rhys, coroner. The first was on Mrs. Martha Rees, 19 Well Place, Cwm- bach, wife of Mr John Rees, who gave evidence of identification. Kate Rees, daughter, said that she and her mother were called to Aberaman on Tuesday morning. When they arrived at a cer- tain house in Aberaman conversation took place and her mother suddenly dropped dead.—Dr. Moffitt, who had been sent for, deposed that deceased had a weak heart and she died from shock.-The jury returned a verdict ac- cordingly. The other inquest was in respect of Edith Williams, 4 Cerdinen Terrace, Cwmbach. Her husband, Thomas Wil- liams, collier, first gave evidence. It was stated that deceased was expecting confinement. Mrs. Morgan, a neigh- bour. said she was called in the house by Mrs. Williams, who said to her, "It is all over," and expired straight away in her arms.—Dr. Murphy deposed that death was due to heart faiiiire.-Ver- dict accordingly.
How did voii manage to quiet that ugly howling mob so quioklv?" "Got a camera man on the scene," answered the police inspector "Then they all perked up and tried to look handsome." FOR SALE.
