Nodion a Newyddion. Mewn cystadleuaeth dro yn ol yr oedd un o'r ymgeiswyr wedi chwennych a dwyn eiddo ei gymydog. Ei ffugenw yn y gystadleuaeth oedd "Barabbas." Unig sylw y beirniad arno oedd, "A'r Barabbas hwn, fel y Barabbas hwnnw, oedd leidr." Rhaid taw hen wag oedd Barabbas yr ail neu ni fuasai yn defn- yddio y fath ffugenw arwyddocaol. Mewn cystadleuaeth am yr englyn beddargraff goreu darfu i'r bardd Cadvan unwaith ddarganfod pump o len ladron. Yr oedd y mwyafrif o hon- ynt wedi copio o weithiau beirdd ymadawedig. Dyna beth yw ysbeilio bedd y marw i roddi coffa i'r marw. Gwr mawr oedd y diweddar Bareh. Joseph Thomas, Carno—mawr o gorff a meddwl. Hyny efallai a gyfrifai am y duedd oedd ynddo i anwvbyddu, os nad i ddiystyru, yr hyn oedd fach. Unwaith pregethai mewn addoldy oedd heb fod yn fawr. Yr oedd yn tueddu at fyned i hwyl ac at godi ei lais pan yn sydyn yr edrychodd i nen y capel ac yna ar y gynulleidfa, ac meddai, "Yr wyf yn ofni gwaeddi yn y capel bach yma rhag ofn iddo ddod i lawr ar fy mhen i." Digiodd hyny rai o bobl y capel hwnw, ond diau nad oedd yr hen batriarch rhadlon yn meddwl amharchu neb na dim. Dro arall dvwedai blaenor wrtho, "Y mae gennym ni bregethwr rhagorol newydd ddod i'r gylchdaith." Digwydd- ai y pregethwr hwnw fod yn Zaccheus > o gorpholaeth er yn Saul o feddwi. Modd bynnag ateb Joseph Thomas ydoedd, "Mae yn gorff rhy fach o flaen cynulleidfa fawr." Nid oedd y gwr o Garno yn hoffi ymyrwyr chwilfrydig. Unwaith gofyn- odd un o'r cyfryw iddo ei oedran. Yr wyf bedair blynedd yn hyn nag Edward fy mrawd," oedd yr ateb. Yr oedd yr ymofynydd pryderus yn ben- derfvnol o wybod oedran Joseph, ac aeth i'r drafferth o weled Edward, a gofynodd iddo yntau ei oedran. Ateb hynw modd bynnag ydoedd, Yr wyf bedair blynedd yn ieuangach na Joseph fy mrawd!" Yr oedd y gwr parchedig yn gwneyd darpariaeth ar gyfer y ddau fyd. Er ei fod yn bregethwr diwyd ac yn fugail diflino ni chyfyngai ei egnion i dori bara y bywyd. Cadwai siop, ac hefyd masnachai mewn glo a chalch. Ni chymeradwyid hyny gan rai o gyd- bentrefwyr a gredent y dylai y rhai a bregethant yr efengyl fyw wrth yr efengyl. Efallai hefyd y buasai ei er- gydion Ilymion ar y tybacco yn dod gyda mwy o ras pe buasai yr ergydiwr yn ymatal rhag gwerthu y nwydd hwnw. Er ei fod yn meddwl yn fawr o'i en- wad nid oedd Joseph Thomas yn wr cul. Gwelsom ef yn gadael pritwyl ei enwad ei hun er mwyn bod yn bresenol yn nghwrdd sefydlu brawd o enwad arall, a mawrhai y gweinidog hwnw y deyrnged hono o barch o eiddo apostol Carno yn fawr. Yr oedd yn hynod o wreiddiol a ffraeth, ac ni cheid neb tebyg iddo i arwain cwrdd llenyddol. Collwyr gwael ydyw gwyr y "Sospan Fach."

Letters to the Editor. WELSHMAN HONOURED. Dear Sir,—It might be interesting to the people of Aberdare to learn that Mr J. O. Broome, a Welshman from Treher- bert, and well-known at Aberdare, has gained his cap to play for the County of Sussex against Essex for the Bowl- ing Association. As we are only a few Welshmen at Eastbourne we feel much gratified at the honour done to our fellow countryman.—Yours, an Aber- dare boy, DAVID THOMAS, Foreman Engineer Motor Omnibus i Eastbourne.

THE ABERDARE AND DISTRICT REGISTERED FRIENDLY SOCIETY COUNCIL. Sir,—On April the 24th, 1912, there was a meeting called at the Queen's Hotel, when it was decided to form the above council, the number of represent- atives to be one for every 250 members or part, according to the strength of the Order. One Order had 5 representatives, another 4 and so on, and the Council was to be financed by a subscription of 2s. 6d. per representative per annum, these things having been decided upon. The Officers for the year and Executive Committee, consisting of one representa- tive from each Society, were elected. Afterwards meetings were held at var- ious dates during 1912. According to the Printed Rules of the Society there was to be a Summoned meetin the first week in January of each year to elect officers and .committee for the ensuing year. What I should like to know from some of the officers is what has become of this Sooiety and its Funds, as I hear that there has been no Summoned Meeting in 1913 or 1914? There were two Committee Meetings in 1913, one on January 14th and one on March 19th. At this last meeting it was decided to call a meet- ing in April 1913 to elect officers and committee for the year. This meeting has not been called yet. Can any of the officers let us know what has become 1 of the Society, as there have been no Auditors appointed to audit the ac- counts and to wind up the Society in a proper manner. And let the public know what has been done with the money paid into the Society.—Yours, A FRIENDLY SOCIETY MEMBER.
BLE MA FA? Sir,—Your correspondent Saron" has apparently been unable to perceive the Welsh religious life in the Welsh national drama presented at Aberaman, and in despair exclaims, lile ma ia:" Saron is shocked at the idea of selecting a Freethinker as the hero of a Welsh drama. I suppose he has read H Rhys Lewis" by Daniel Owen, and that he will admit that it truly represents the national life—even the religious life of Wales. It is written' by an orthodox Welsh preacher, one who belonged to the "most straitest sect" of Nonconformity. Now Daniel Owen's hero, according to Gwili, an orthodox Welsh .minister again, is U Bob," a Freethinker, a character and record that any saint could be proud of," a brave soul who sought the light and failed to find it in church or creed. My experience of Ag- nostics and all men outside the church is that in morals they will compare very favourably with the elect." The pro- fessional saints have, as a rule. all the bad points of the sinners plus hypocrisy, while the latter possess all the good points of the former minus cant. So the odds of morality are in favour of the heretic. I hope that Wales has a greater mission and that the Welsh drama has a better purpose than to try to convince our countrymen that there can be no good outside the chapel and no faith in honest doubt. The lives of such men as Robert Owen and Derfel are a higher authority on this subject than a score of sermons or dramas writ- ten for the express purpose of showing the evils of Agnosticism and the glories of churchgoing. What Gwalia wants to- day is men—men of a character that re- quires no kirk or creed to bolster it up. —Yours, CAMBRENSIS.
WELSH NATIONAL DRAMA. Dear Sir,—In yaur last issue a letter appeared dealing with the above sub- ject which, if one may judge from the nom-de-plume, deserves special notice, for the writer has assumed the name of one of the largest and most respected churches in the district. Whether he intends to speak in the name of that church, we don't pretend to know, but teel absolutely certain that the' senti- ments expressed by him are not those held by the majority of its members. In view of this, and certain other facts, which need not be mentioned, it can hardly be said that Saron" has dis- played the acme of good taste in his choice of nom-de-plume. With refer- ence to his charge against the plays, the Welsh National Drama Co. may congrat- ulate themselves on the fact that three of their productions have passed the eye of this self-styled censor. Something to be proud of at any rate. It may be significant too, that two of the three plays attacked are by the same author. H Change, "we are told, scaffs at relig- ion and welcomes the new fangled notions which take its place. It seems that this was all that Saron could hear; he must have been deaf to some of the best bits of dialogue in the whole piece. What about the beautiful lines of the invalid son, Gwilym, not to mention the truisms uttered by the Cockney That- cher" who, after his quaint summing up of progress in his own way, forces even the fiery and enthusiastic Lewis to ask, "I wonder Sam, if you are right." Change," we say most emphatically, is merely a true picture of what is tak- ing place in scores of families to-day. Mr Francis does not make a mistake, so often made, of offering some panacea, but rather arouses his audiences to think for themselves over the matter. "The Poacher" next comes under the lash, and according to Saron teaches that the village imbecile triumphs over the Divine Master. This change again prov- es the shortsightedness of Saron," for if he carefully analysed the character of H Twmas Shon" the poacher, he would find that Twmas had fallen into the error which proves the downfall of many a convert to religion, that of making a prominent character in the church his ideal, with the result that when that ideal collapsed his newly formed faith was not sufficient to stand the shock. Once again Mr Francis has put his fing- er with gentle satire upon the truth, for is not the same kind of thing going on in our midst daily? May I also remind Saron that even the village buffoon de- serves to be quoted correctly. In Ble Ma Fa" we have, according to the best critics, one of the finest character stud- ies ever written, true in every detail. Saron should not be so prone to general- ise. He should bear in mind that if Gitto proved to be a hero, it does not Gitto proved to be a hero, it does not necessarily follow that every Agnostic is a hero, any more than the fact that Dafydd Hughes in "The Poacher" is a hypocrite proves that every deacon is one. It seems that Saron's great ob- jection to these playa is that they are too true to nature—not always a paying asset in a play, because, after all, if the truth is to do us any good we must feel hurt by it. All honour to Lord Howard De Walden and his colleagues, and may their efforts be crowned with success is the sincere wish of GWTLYM AP TAGO.

.4> B.W.T.A. The monthly meeting of the Associa- tion was held on Monday at the English Wesleyan Chapel, Aberdare, Mrs George presiding. Mrs Kevill offered prayer and Mrs Barraclough read a portion of Scripture. A vote of condolence with Mrs Smith, one of the members, who has lost her husband, and with the rela- tives of the "Emprese of Ireland" vict- ims was passed in silence. Mrs Wilcox, the secretary, read the minutes of pre- vious meetings and gave particulars con- cerning the Jumble Sale. The Rev. T. Powell, Cwmdare, gave an address on "The relation of Temperance and Gospel effort." Mr Powell in the course of his address said that the church at first viewed the temperance movement with suspicion and even with hostility. Dr. Hodge, the great Ameri- can divine, had openly opposed it. Mr Powell referred to the growth of the movement in Wales. The three great outstanding preachers of Wales, John Elias, Christmas Evans and Williams o'r Wern, were abstainers. No temper- ance effort was so thorough as the gospel temperance effort. If we wanted to per- form any work effectively we must do it as Christian workers. Mrs Griffiths, the president of the As- sociation, remarked that the mission of the B.W.T.A. had always taken the form of gospel temperance. Mrs Lewis also spoke briefly. Mrs R. H. Miles observed that God had ordained that temperance should be a handmaid in the salvation of the world. Mrs Miles having related some of her experiences as a nurse, moved a vote of thanks to Mr Powell. Mrs Richards, Wenallt, seconded. Mrs Walter Lloyd and Mrs Wilcox were ap- pointed as representatives to attend the I.O.G.T. Grand Lodge of Wales meet- ings at Aberdare. Miss Megan Davies, the well-known contralto, gave a fine rendering of the solo, "Return unto thy rest," and Miss Maggie Jones, Cwmdare, a rising young vocalist sang, "Love divine" very sweet- Iv. Both were heartily applauded. Mrs Watts was the organist. Mrs Owen Williams closed the meeting in prayer. Owing to the kindness of Mrs John Davies in giving the tea the collection was handed over to the general fund.
Colliery Development at Rhigos. Tilt HERBERT COLLIERY. SOD CUT- TING CEREMONY OF DRIFT REES LLEWELLYN. On Monday afternoon, June 8th, a very interesting ceremony took place at Rhigos. The good news had already been made known to the residents of this historic village that Mr D. R. Llewellyn had decided to open a colliery on the Bryn, at a point midway be- tween the Old Tower and Llyn Fawr, consequently a number of the villagers were attracted to the spot. Mr Llewellyn has leased from Lord Bute the right to work the Graig and Gorllwyn Fach seams over an area of 1,100 acres. This land adjoins the Windber and Bwlch Collieries, so that Mr Llewellyn has now a taking extending as the crow flies, over a distance of five miles.— the largest in South Wales—for these two seams. It is very gratifying to the residents of Aberdare that Mr D. R. Llewellyn has the proud distinction of being the pion- eer in the working of these seams in South Wales, and he is to be congratula- ted upon the success which has crowned his efforts. Up to 15 years ago it was thought that these thin seams could not be profitably worked, but upon the introduction by Mr Llewellyn of coat-cutting machines the practical difficulties were overcome. The sod was cut by Master Rhys Llewellyn, son of the proprietor, in the presence of the followfcig ladies and gentlemen: Mr and Mrs D. R. Llewellyn, Aderman Rees Llewellyn, J.P., and Mrs Llewellyn, Mr W. M. Llewellyn, M.E., D.C.; Mr Griffith Llewellyn, Solicitor; Dr. Evan Jones, J.P., late of Tymawr; Mrs Banks; Mr Gomer L. Thomas, J.P., Merthyr; Mr A. J. Howfield; Mr W. Reynolds, Bute Estate Offices; Mr Bux- ton, Agent to Windber and Dyllas Col- lieries; Mr Gwilym Griffiths; Mr Henry Williams, Mechanical Engineer; Mr Mason, Tanybryn Brickworks; Mr W. Jenkins, Cwmdare; Mr and Mrs John Powell, Hirwain; Mr P. J. Leonard, Contractor; and Mr and Mrs J. L. Rosser. Master Rhys Llewellyn, a sturdy little fellow, and a typical representative of the Bwllfa family, performed the inter- esting ceremony of cutting the sod. He said: I hope this colliery will be a great success and will give employment to a large number of workmen." Dr. Evan Jones, whilst congratulating Mr D. R. Llewellyn upon his enterprise, said that Welshmen as a rule were con- sidered devoid of the spirit of enter- prise, but Mr Llewellyn was an ex- ception to that rule. Alderman Rees Llewellyn, J.P., Gen- eral Manager of Bwllfa and Merthyr Dare Steam Collieries, said that he naturally hoped the enterprise would be a success and that the relations be. tween employer and employed would al- ways be friendly. Mr Gomer L. Thomas, J.P., of Mer.. thyr, said that the inhabitants of Aber- dare should feel grateful to Mr D. R. Llewellyn for engaging in so many enter- prises. The Windber and Dyllas Collier- ies had now an output approaching 800 tons a day, giving employment to a large number of men. He hoped the colliery now being opened would add a substan- tial increase to this output. He wished Mr Llewllyn a prosperous future. Mr W. Jenkins, collier, of Cwmdare, speaking in the vernacular, said that while we were witnessing this interest- ing ceremony which would result in im- proving the material welfare of the district, we were liable to forget the worry and trouble which the proprietor had to endure, especially the fear that the enterprise would not prove a success. Mr Llewellyn was entitled to succeed, for he had undertaken to (levelop seams which others would not look at. He did not care to flatter anybody, but he could assure them that Mr Llewellyn was as good an employer as anyone in South Wales. Welshmen had been slow in asserting themselves, but they were now awakening to their possibilities, and distinctions had been attained by them in many spheres. Mr Thos. Jones (Gwrangonfryn) here read a few verses appropriate to the occasion. Mr D. R. Llewellyn expressed his thanks to all for being present on that occasion and for their good' wishes. He had pleasure in naming the drift aftet his father, to whom he owed so nruch. He would also refer to the kindness which Lord Merthyr had shewn him. His Lordship had given him every facil- ity in the negotiations for the minerals, and had also given him valuable ad- vice. Mr Llewellyn paid a high tribute to Lord Merthyr's geological knowledge of the coal measures of South Wales, and said that possibly no man, with the exception of perhaps the late Mr Thomas Joseph, could be compared with him in this respect. He referred to the fact that this was not the first connect- ion of a Llewellyn with Rhigos, for many years ago an ancestor of his lived here, by name Thomas Llewellyn, of H Glynllwydrew, who, in the year 1540, translated the Bible into good Welsh from Tyndal's English version. Dis- putes in a colliery would necessarily arise, but he hoped both employer and employed would have the wisdom to "live and let live."
The Widening of Mill Street. The problem of widening Duke Street is still agitating the minds of Cardiff people. In the meantime the widening of Mill Street, Trecynon, has been ac- complished in an efficient and expedit- ious manner. In fact the whole con- tract was practically completed in a week by Mr D. Tyssul Davies, Builder and Contractor, Trecynon. The widen- ing of Mill Street, or as the natives still prefer to call it, Heolyfelin," was a portion of the street widening scheme undertook by the Aberdare District Council in connection with the laying of tram lines. From the entrance into Llewelyn Street down to the entrance into Harriet Street the road was very narrow, but now the throttle-valve has been removed. The alteration has great- ly improved the appearance of the St. Fagan's side of the street, while the open spaces in front of the houses have not been materially affected although the road is wider by five yards. There is ample space for a monument to Cara- dog in front of Cwnrig, where the great musician was bred in the days when it was known as the Crown Inn, and when Caradog was known as "Griff o'r Crown." With the transition from the narrow to the broad way, an old land- mark has disappeared in the form of a tall and stately tree which stood near this spot.
