Local Wedding. On Saturday morning last a wedding ivas solemnised at Sardis Welsh Congre- gational Church, Pontypridd, by special licence, the parties being Miss Annie Eynon, the youngest daughter of the late Mr. Henry Eynon, Maesteg House, Mountain Ash, and the Rev. T. Lloyd Jones, B.A., B.D., Pencader. Owing to the severe illness of Mrs. Eynon it was a quiet event. Mrs. Jones is the second daughter of Mr. Eynon who is married to a minister. The other one is the wife of the Rev. J. Bowen Davies, Abercwm- boi, the author of the popular new drama, "Brethyn Cartre." The officiating ministers were the Revs. William Davies, Soar, Mountain Ash; T. Cad- fwlch Davies, St. Clears, who acted as best man; J. Bowen Davies., and the Rev. O. Lloyd Owen, minister of Sardis. The ceremony was a very impressive one. Mrs. Bowen Davies, the bride's Rister, and Mrs. Idris Eynon, sister-in- law, acted as bridemaids. The bride was piven away bv her brother, Mr. Idris P. Eynon. After the ceremony the party were entertained to a sumptuous break- fast at the New Inn Hotel, after which speeches were delivered by the ministers present and Mr. Gwilym Jones, solicitor, Mountain Ash, who was a member of the wedding party. We wish the young couple a pleasant journey through life.
Saggar's, Aberdare. Next Week: A Study in Scarlet." (Note—Continuous Performance from 3 o'clock.) As will be seen from Old Haggar's advertisement on our front page, some- thing groat is happening at his pretty picture-house. To-night (Thursday), Friday and Saturday one of the greatest attractions of the cinematograph world is being screened. Old Haggar is oat for the business, and his capture of The Trey O'Hearts is his latest. It is the sensation of the hour, and will fill that Market Street house of enter- tainment to overflowing. The story is of a vendetta which is carried out to the bitter end. The Trey O'Hearts is the signal, wherever found, that some re- vengeful act is being plotted. Alan Law is the man plotted against, and Rose, his sweetheart, is the daughter of the plotter. The interest never flags, and the staging is something magnifi- cent. On Monday, Tuesday and Wed- nesday next, the long looked-for drama, A Study in Scarlet," will be screened. Old Haggar again touches the spot, and oegs to remind his patrons that, in order to give everyone an opportunity to see this magnificent play on Sir Conan Doyle's novel, there will be a continuous performance from 3 o'clock each after- noon. Perhaps nothing in detective action stands out so prominently in the public favour as Sherlock Holmes the hi<"tive detective, and his bosom friend Watson. In this story the un- ravelling of this twisted skein of crimin. ality takes the spectator into the maze of Mormonism, and its sinister creed. Sherlock Holmes is there however every time, and his work is scarcely shown so vividly in any other of the great author's works. If you miss this you miss a lot. Another attraction is the 2nd part of Dolly of the Dailies."
