He was held in est esteem and respect by his comrades and all with whom he came in contact, and it came as a great shock to us to hear of his death. He had complained to me about having a cold in his chest, which became so bad that he had to go into Hospital. I may say th&t in the many talks we have had to- gether, I have always noted the love and affection which he had, for his mother and sisters. He was only telling me about ten days ago that he was ex- pecting his brother out here shortly. I cannot conclude this letter without ex- pressing to Mrs. Lloyd and yourself, sir, the deepest sympathy towards you both, in your sad bereavement, from all his comrades here."
Aberdare Missioner in the Trenches, Private George Brown, who relin- quished the post of Church Missioner at Aberdare, and enlisted with the colours last November, is now in the firing line in Franjce. Writing from there in a letter dated February 4th he says, We have been in the trenches for two con- secutive days and nights. We are less than 50 yards away from the German trenches. It was bitterly cold. I have felt the effects a little myself, but I have much to be thankful for. Some of our poor chaps have been frost-bitwn and have gone to hospital. At first, it is a queer sensation to be only a few vards from the enemy, shots and shells flying around you and the large guns booming. They fire away at us while we arc under cover. One morning we had a short duel- exchanges of rapid firing. This hap- pened at 2.30 .a.m. Some of us thought the'enemy were charging us. I was not at all excited over it, but it made some of us think of home. However, I felt prepared to do my duty. Some nights ¡ we have been lying in secret to charge the enemy if it should attack us. For 24 hours some time last week I was on -,iia d at a farm where our company was r hiding. We moved on from there into the firing line—or rather just behind it, and hid under cover in dug holes only 2t feet deep. I spent last Sunday in this manner. I thought of all my Friends at Aberdare. ¡ My first attempt to get into the dug hole was amusing. I got in head fore- most and found myself in rather an un- comfortable position. I managed to out and then crawled in again, vice versa this time. The shots are whizzing by our heads. rhe German snipers are all over the place, and they snipe our men un- awares. They hide in trees and other secret places.* I can assureVou the life of a soldier on active service is not a bed of roses, but thank God I have been keeping very well. I have not shirked my duty since I enlisted. It is sad to see the destruction which the Germans have caused throughout the country. Farms, churches and whole villages have been destroyed and the inhabitants have fled. Cattle and pigs lie dead all over the place. What a sad sight! What the English papers have told you is quite true. I have seen it with my own eyes. Every able- bodied man should offer himself for military service. I was sorry to leave my work at Aber- dare—the place and work of my heart, but I could not resist the call. Best respects to all my friends."
Aberdare Man Joins Army Service Co. Mr. Edgar Rees, brother to Mr W. Winstone Hees, auctioneer, has joined the ranks of the Army Service Corps. Mr Hees, who is a teacher bv profession, is well-known both in Aberdare and Mountain Ash, having been prominently associated with football, mostly as referee. He is a member of the com- mittee of the Aberdare Liberal Club, and secretary of the Club's Games Com- mittee. He is also a co-opted member of the local Parks Amusements Commit- tee. He left Aberdare for Aldershot last Monday, and when he is properly equipped will proceed to France.
-u War Jottings. BY "OPTIMIST." Nurse Alice Allen, the daughter of fr. and Mrs. F. J. Allen, formerly of Aberdare, and now of Cardiff, was with the Red Croas Society at Aldershot until Friday last, when she left for ac- tive service at the Front in company with a staff of Queen Alexandra's trained nurses. She will be attached to one of the field hospitals near the firing line, and will work in conjunction with the Royal Army Medical Corps. Lance-Corporal John McCormack, the local dentist, who went out with the 6th Welsh Regiment to the Front some time back, is now lying at one of the military hospitals in Bolougne, France, suffering from the effects of exposure in the trenches. However I hear that he is prcgressing. He has written home to say that he has not yet received the Christmas pudding sent out to him by* the members of the Aberdare Liberal Club on December 12th last. He re- ceived the card alright, but minus the conglomeration of flour, whiskey, and raisins. Too bad! His brother Bob, who is with the Royal Field Artillery, is also on the sick list, having been kicked by a horse and sustained a broken finger. There are a good number of local men with the Welsh Division of the Royal Engineers at Abergavenny, where they arrived from Porthcawl. A man from I Griffith Street, Aberdare, tells me that they have been engaged in the spacious market-hall in trestle-making in pre- j paration for bridge-building; others are engaged in knotting, lashing, and I splicing ropes, and the drivers of all the j units have been given instruction in j horse management. Says my informant, "We have a large number of carpenters, wheelwrights, bricklayers, shoeing smiths, masons, coopers, and drivers, and all are given every opportunity of show- ing their skill in their work. I am in ) the carpentry department. We are billeted in some of the finest villas in the place, and the food is good." Trooper Will Davies, of Llanthewy Street, Aberaman, is with the 5th Dragoon Guards, who are stationed at York. Will was a playing member of the Troedyrhiw Association Football Club, and had previously assisted the Trecynon Windsors Club at full back. He also played Mid-Rhondda a short time back. Davies has figured for Cwm- bacb, and was most sought after by the executive of the Aberaman Athletic Club. He likes his present calling immensely. I have met several young men who conmlain that they were refused employ- ment at some of the local collieries, and were told to enlist in the Army instead. This is rather unfair to one of the fellows, who, I am told, has been sup- porting his widowed mother and younger children. Private Jim Hemlock, the popular local footballer, was home on furlough on Saturday last. He is with the 5th battalion of the Wetsh Regiment sta- tioned at Tunbridge Wells, and hopes to sail for the Front on the 14th of this uiontb. Jim is a rare nut for fun and football. I am sure he will frighten the Germans out of their trenches when they will hear his laugh. Tom Peters, son of Mr. Peters, of Ox- ford Street, GarUys, is an Able Seaman 0'1 board the H.M S. Duke of Edinburgh, which is engatred in patrol work in the North Sea. Tom has served his time in the Navy, and has experienced some I vicissitudes on the West Coast of Africa nnd near Turkey. A brother of his, Will Peters, is engaged in Army transport work. The ever-smiling Dai Tom Evans, the well-known forward of the Trecynon Windsors, was home on short furlough last week. He is with the Army Service Corps stationed at Wnreham in Dorset. Dai Tom is a splendid fellow, and a good sport of the never say die pattern. Rifleman C. Waters, son of Mr. and Mrs. Waters. Whitting Street, Glyn Neath, is a prisoner of war at Doeberitz, Germany. He has been out with the Rifle Brigade since the commencement of the war, and his people have heard that he is quite well.

Aberdare Brotherhood. CHRIST AND THE CRITICS. The Rev. George Windram, of the Aberdare Primitive Methodist Church, was the speaker at the Brotherhood meeting held at Green Street Wesleyan Church last Sunday afternoon. In the course of a very helpful address the rev. gentleman spoke of pictures and paint- ings, and then went on to picture Christ going about doing good. A man might believe all the creeds—and there were many of them—yet fall far short of the Kingdom of God. The faith that saved was the faith which linked a man to the divine omnipresence. Referring to an incident in the Scrip- ture where Christ heals a sick person in the presence of the Pharisees, the speaker remarked that Christ was dumb to the critics. Jesus had spoken to a poor sad lone woman on the wayside and opened up to her the whole kingdom of heaven, a.nd he had, in the shadow of the darkness of night, spoken to a Jewish rabbi. But to the intellectual critic he was dumb. Still he (the "0..1") WAjes o-lnrl "flinf f-ha orifice wit- SjJtfUKPLV wtt-H ftiau vuat, ulle urlulk." WAL- nessed Christ's action. They had not the moral courage to say what was in their mind, but Jesus Christ read their thoughts and answered their unuttered objections, and there never was a lot of schoolboys more frightened than those critics who formed part of Jesus' audi- ence. "I have always a horror of the mattor- of-fact man." continued the speaker, "the man who wants to see and weigh everything, and put it down on a black- board with a piece of chalk. I would rather have to do with a man who sees a. hundred ghosts every night than with the matter-of-fact man who has no vision and no imagination. Jesus in his work of healing attended to the heart of the man first of all. It was no use providing good houses and good dresses for a man whose heart was not right. Whatever we might do by sanitary methods and the advance of silence, we must see that the heart was right before any lasting good was brought about. And it was only Jesus who could put the heart right. Let them bring the moral paralytics 'to Christ. The chairman was Mr. J. H. Bannister, 'one of the vice-presidents of the Brother- hood. The chapter read was Matthew 9.

Barddoniaeth. LLINELLAU LLONGYFARCHIADOL I Mr. Austin Hughes, 7 Cadwaladr St., a Miss Mercy Brown, Rheidol Cottage, Harcourt Road, Mountain Ash, ar eu priodas, Ionawr 28ain, 1915.

Nid yr hen sarit heddgarol o Landdewibrefi ydyw y prif arwr Cym- reig eleni, ond Owain Glyndwr a fu farw bum can mlvnedd Yn of, a Syr Thomas Picton, a fu farw gan mlynedd yn ol yn mrwydr fawr Waterloo.

Cymrodorion Aberdar. Athraw ar Owain Glyndwr. Nos Wener diweddaf y Cynghorwr George Powell oedd wrth lyw y Gym- deithas. Canwyd "Gwlad y Delyn" i ddechreu gan Mr Tom Davies (Llew'r De). Caed araeth ar Owain Glyndwr gan yr Athraw Emrys Hughes, M.A., o Brifysgol Caerdydd. Deliodd gyda'r cyfnod pryd y collodd Cymru ei nanni- byniaeth drwy gwymp Llewelyn yn 12S2 hyd adeg yr uniad a Lloegr yn 1536. Dywedai mai hanes cynydd a dadblyg- iad ydoedd hanes y genedl wedi bod er y bummed ganrif, a beiddiai ddarogan mai dyna oedd i fod ei rhan yn y dy- fodol. Peth lied hawdd oedd lladd ar- weinwyr a thywysogion cenedl, ond ni j gorchwyl mor ysgafn oedd tori calon cenedl. Tueddem ni yn yr oes gall hon i ddiystyru yr hen brophwydoliaeth am ail-ddyfodiad Arthur, ond trwv gyfrwng y fath ddaroganiad y pregethid efeBgyl gobaith i genedl y Cymry. Cyfeiriodd y darlithydd at yr anrhaith a wnaed yn Nghymru gan yr haint du. Modd byn- nag, yr oedd gwlad fel rheol yn adfer nerth lawer yn gynt ar ol haint nag ar ol rhyfel. Lladdai y blaenaf y gwein- iaid, ond y diweddaf y cryf a'r iach Ac ni fu Gwalia yn hir cyn enill nerh ar 01 i'r pla du ei gadael. Soniodd yr Athraw Hughes am Owain Lawgoch, yr hwn a, ddaeth i fri fel rhyfelwr yn ngwasanaeth jirenin Ffrainc, ac a fu yn brwydro yn erovn Lloegr. Daeth cenedl gyfan i groesawu ymddangosiad Owain Glyndwr ai lwyfan gwladlywiaeth Cymru. Nid oedd efe o waedoliaeth Llewelyn. Hanai o du ei dad o Bowys, ac o du ei fam o Ddyfed. Ganwyd ef yn Sir Bentrc yn 1359. Cafodd addysg dda, a bu Y,1 as- tudio y gyfraith a milwriaeth. Ceisi.»i 8hakespear roddi yr argraff idh- h n gwyllt, diddysg a dibrofiad ydoedd Glyn- dwr, ond nid gwir syny. Yr oedd efe yn wr o ddysg a diwylliant ac wedi gweled llawer o'r byd. Gwr y werin oedd Glyndwr. Efe oedd cynrychiol- ydd cyntaf y werin yn Nghymru. Y werin, ac nid y dosbarth breintiedig, a atebodd ei alwad gyntaf. Ac hyd heddyw yr oedd efe yn ffafryn gyda'r bobl gyffredin. Bu byddin Glyndwr a byddin Ffrainc yn cydymladd a byddin Lloegr, ond ni fu llawer o lwyddiant ar ymgyrch unedig y Cymry a'r Ffrancod am nad oeddynt yn deall eu gilvdd yn dda. Aeth y Ffrancod yn ol j'w wlad. Enillodd y Saeson y dydd, ond hyd y diwedd daliodd Glyndwr yn wrthryfel- wr. Gwrthododd yn deg roddi i fyny ei hawl o annibyniaeth i Gymru, gan ddewis yn hytrach oddef adfyd ffoadur unig yn mynyddoedd Cymru na derbyn ffafr Brenin Lloegr yn gyfnewid am ym- ostyngiad. Credyd i Gymru ydoedd ei j 9 gweitnred yn cydnabod hawl y dewr Owain i anrhydedd coffa, er mai dyn wedi methu yn ei genadaeth ydoedd. Yr oedd efe yn ymladd dros ryddid gwladol, rhyddid crefyddol ac hefyd addysg uwchraddol i Gymru. Breudd- i wydiodd Glyndwr am Brifysgol i Gymru bum canrif yn ol. Wedi i'r ilywydd wahodd ymdrin- iaeth, y Parch. J. Morgan a gododd ac a ganmolodd Gymraeg araeth yr Athraw. Yr oedd yn gabolwaith hanes- yddol da. Cynygiai efe ddiolch iddo. Miss M. A. Watkin, B.A., a gyfeir- ( iodd at wasanaeth mawr yr Athraw Hughes i'r Gymraeg yn 3-fhrifathrofa Caerdydd. Eiliodd hi y cynygiad, yr hwn a gariwyd mewn cywair brwd.
