Trecynon and Llwydeoed Notes.
Trecynon and Llwydeoed Notes. BY MARCELLO. One of the effects of the war is. to irge women to undertake agricultural ,-ork. It has been suggested locally hat hay classes for female students hould be organised. If this came about here would be a good chance for the ■r;uss widows to make hay while the un shines. Bluster says that he would go to f the service without being fetched f he could choose his dorps. He wants i job in the steam roller section. A "rushing idea. He had better .,go to Russia. The path of glory leads to the grave- yard, but Cemetery Road is quite an [chabod between the hour of stop-tap ind the hour when graveyards yawn. Look out, ye miscreants, Marcello iB in your track. IJe knows a thing or two, and the world will know it presently. p—- swears that he saw swallows before the blizzard came. He is blessed with second sight, or perhaps double sight would be more correct. Mill Street residents are early to bed and early to rise, but they are greatly disturbed by the wingless canaries and human (or rather inhuman) cockatoos that make night hideous and sleep impossible. Ye special constables, here is a tip for ye. Miss E- wants to go away to do wax- work. She claims that she is well qualified, because she has been doing a lot of it at home. A oes heddweh? j declares that he is a patriot, and he shows it by spinning about the country on his motor-cycle. Way not offer himself or his machine or lioth to the Government? Johnny has for some time been saving up money to put in the War Loan, and he has quite a nice little nest., I am told. But unless he I persuaded to invest the money before the Aberdare Fair the Government will not have a penny of it. The preacher at a local place of worship had a very inattentive congre- gation last Sunday. The children on the gallery had a gala day. The ladies- were all admiring or envying each other's new spring hats, and the men- well. they were not there. The smart young lady is taking her brand new costume with hat to match round all the spring cyrddau mawr in' the district. If she will not net some- thing by the end of the series it will not be- her fault. During the recent severe weather Iiitt Lone discovered that he was in love. And he thought how nice it would be to have a nice home and a warm fireside of his own. But his newly-found affection is melting with the snow. Another blizzard would put him right. Buck up. fair one! Tommy has promised a "surprise" gift for his best girl. It will probably be an Easter offering, but the adjective would have been more appropriate if he had not mentioned the thing. I got hold of what I considered an exclusive item of news the other day. But alas, my dreams of a gTand scoop vanished. The local honorary New* Agency had forestalled me, and before T could sharpen my pencil it was stale news. Empire Day is coming. Why should its observance be limited to Llwydcoed Schools? Should not the Imperial holiday have an all-round application- like Aberdare fair, for instance. A fresh burden for the Government. Private Blank is blessed with an abnor- mal appetite. When at home his mother's daily dread was her son's ofrequent and exhaustive raids on the larder. She misses her boy, but at the name time feels that the Army com- missariat has relieved her of a great responsibility.

Nodion a Newyddion. ¡ Ddydd Llun diweddaf penderfyn- odd Cynghor Dosbarth Aberdar, drwy ddeg pleidlais yn erbyn pump, i agor Claddfa Gyhoeddus Aberdar 11 ar Sul y lodail. Rhyfedd fel y mae gethau wedi newid mewn byr amser. yw 13 o llynyddau yn ol gwnaed cais i agor dinas y meirwon ar y dydd hwn, ond bu yr ymgais yn fethiant. Ar y pryd gosododd yr eglwysi lleol eu hwynebau fel callestr yn erbyn y mudiad. Y tro yma ni symudodd yr eglwysi na Chyngor yr Eglwysi yn y mater o gwbl. Efallai na wyddent fod y cynygiad yn dod o fiaen y Sen- edd Leol. I Sul anwyl yn Nghymru yw Sul y Blodau, neu yn ol y Saesneg, Sul y Palmwydd." Dyma y dydd gyferbyn a pha un y rhoir gwyrdd-ddail a phwysiau" ar y beddau, ie, hyd y nod ar "lwm fedd y dyn tylawd." Mewn manau mae cryn wrthwynebiad i agor y mynwentydd ar y dydd hwn, am fod tuedd, yn enwedig yn mysg ieu- I enctyd, i droi Sul y Blodau yn Efair y Blodau. Hyderwn na chawn brof- iad o hyn yn Aberdar, neu bydd raid myned yn ol at yr hen oruchwyliaeth, a chauad dor y gladdfa yn erbyn y byw a chwennychant weled hunell y marw ar Sul y Blodau. Colled fawr i dref Llanelli fydd marwolaeth Syr Stafford Howard, yr hwn a gymerwyd ymaith ddydd Sadwrn diweddaf. Yr oedd yn wr hael iawn a chymerai ddyddordeb yn J mhopeth a fyddai er lies y dref a'r ardal. Un o deulu urddasol Stepney 1 yw ei briod. Mae hi yn wladgar dros ben ac yn llawn yni a sel ynglyn a phopeth Cymreig. Rhoddodd hi a'i gwr ystad eang yn rhodd i dref Llan- elli fel pare eyhoeddus ar y telerau nad oedd diod feddwol i gael ei gwerthu ar yr eiddo yn unman. Yr oedd y diweddar Syr Stafford yn ddirwestwr aiddgar ac ymarferol, Gadawodd Mr. Blandy Jenkins, Cadeirydd Cynghor Sirol Morganwg, a iu farw yn ddiweddar, ystad yn werth dros dri chan mil o bunnau ar ei ol. Mae y Parch. H. O. Hughes, gweinidog y gylchdaith Wesley aid. 1 Gymraeg yn Aberdar, wedi cael "galwad" i'r gylchdaith Wesleyaidd Saesneg yn y dref, a bydd yn dech- reu ar ei weinidogaeth gyda'r Saeson ddechreu Medi nesaf. Brodor o Ar- fon yw Mr. Hughes. Mae weai treulio oes faith ar gylchdeithiau Cymraeg. Mae wedi gwasanaethu o'r blaen gyda'r Cymry yn Lloegr, ond yn awr ca brofiad o weinyddu gyda'r Saeson yn Xghymru. Wedi "dros ddeuddeng mlynedd o wasanaethu Eglwys Fethodistaidd Seisnig Trinity, Aberdar, bydd y Parch. J. Lewis Jenkins yn dechreu ar ei waith newydd fel bugail Eglwys Bresbyteraidd yn Lerpwl ddiwedd Mai. Yn ystod ei arosiad yn Aber- dar cymerodd Mr. Jenkins ran amlwg a diwyd ynglyn a llawer mudiad cy- hoeddus yn y dref a'r ardal. Hysbysir marwolaeth y Parch. Ebenezer Morgan, yr hwn am flyn- yddau a lafuriodd gyda'r Wesleyaid Seisnig. Brawd ydoedd i'r diweddar Barch. John Hugh Morgan, yr hwn a fu farw ychydig fisoedd yn ol. Yr oedd yntau yn un o bregethwyr mwy- af grymus a phoblogaidd y ey!cii- aeLthiau Seisnig. Brodorion o Aber- ystwyth oeddynt. Hynod mor debyg i gadair eistedd- fod ydyw sedd y Tal-ynad yn Llys Ynadon Aberdar. A ydoedd yr aw- durdodau yn wybyddus o gymhwys- derau barddol Elphin, tybed?

-n_ Guardians' Presentation. During lunch at the close of the meeting of the Merthyr Board of Guardians on Saturday, an interest- ing presentation took place. Mrs. Richards, on behalf of the members, handed to Miss Jones, who has been assistant matron at the Workhouse for a number of years, a beautiful silver cruet stand, to mark the occa- sion of her marriage. The following words had been inscribed on the ar- ticle: "Presented to Miss M. J. Jones, assistant matron at the Work- house, on her marriage, by the mem- bers of the Merthyr Board of Guard- ians." The cruet stand was supplied by Messrs. Thomas & Co., jewellers, Aberdare. Mrs. Richards having poken, Mr. Morgan Williams, Aber- iant, added a few words, after which yIias Jones (now Mrs. Thomas) )riefly responded.
The Cwmneol Fatality.
The Cwmneol Fatality. Inquest on the Victim. Mr. R. J. Rhys, coroner, conducted an inquest at Aberaman on Friday, touching the death of John Hitchings (43), a collier, of 40 Jubilee Road, Godreaman, who was under a fall at the Cwmneol Colliery, Cwmaman, for 48 hours. David James Thomas, a half- brother of the deceased, gave evi- dence of identification. John Tomkins, who worked in the next stall to the deceased, said that the "fall" occurred at about a quar- ter to eight on Monday morning. Witness was about two yards away from Hitchings at the time. He was working for Hitchings to' give him some help with a tram. Deceased was then in the act of putting a post under a collar to support it. A sud- den squeeze occurred and the roof fell with a crash. Witness only just managed to jump clear, and was just brushed by the edge of the fall in so doing. He immediately called for help and he continued to assist m clearing the debris until the evening. Where deceased was standing at the time was situated about four yards' distance from the coal face. The seam was the nine foot seam. The place looked quite safe when they started work that morning. By Mr. Owen Powell (miners' agent) There was a plentiful supply of timber in the place. George Frame, fireman, spoke to havinsr examined the place in the early morning of the day of the fall, and marked it safe to work in. Wit- ness told the deceased to put up a post because he was not quite satis- fied with the one already put up III that place. Apart from that the place was quite in order. Witness was on sceng three minutes jifter t-ne fall occurred, and remained there until nine in the evening. The body was recovered on Wednesday morn- ing. Replying to the Coroner, he said that a thickness of 13 feet of coal and a further thickness of about 10 feet of clift roof fell, while the area of the c' fall extended to about 11 yards by 8 yards. The work of clearing the fall was considerably hampered by the constant sliding of the roof. The fall might have resulted from a pres- sure caused by a blow alone. Wit- ness had not seen a fall like that one without any warning before. By Mr. Powell: The additional tirnberingas intended to secure the roof as the deceased man was going to do some ripping from behind. Thomas Lloyd, another fellow- collier, spoke to hearing the deceased shout when the fall occurred. Mr. J. W. Jordan, the manager, who explained a plan of the work- ings, said that there was such a constant squeeze in the nine foot seam that a stranger would be afraid to work in it. The coal above was continually "pinching. Before the body could be recovered a quantity of 270 trams of debris had to be cleared, which was about a third of the fall. The Coroner: -About a 1,000 tons fall. I have 'only heard of one fall like this one, and that was many years ago at the Steward Colliery. In summing up the Coroner re- marked that it was possible the jar- ring consequent upon the deceased putting up the prop was the last strain that brought down the roof. A verdict of "Accidental deith was returned. The interment took place at the Aber- dare Cemetery on Saturday last. In the cortege, which was very large, was a good representation of the K.A.O.B., headed by the King's Read Lodge. The committee of the local Institute and als6 the workmen and committee of the Cwmneol Colliery were well represented. Mr. W. Llewelyn performed the obsequies.

---. Trinity, Aberdare.
Trinity, Aberdare. At Trinity English C.M. Church. Aberdare, the preacher on Sunday was the Rev. J. Lewis Jenkins, pas- tor. At the morning service Mr. Jenkins addressed the children, tak- ing as his text a sentence from the Epistle of James, The tongue is a fire." He showed how the tongue was a blessing and a curse, and could be of good use and also an instrument of abuse. Mr. Jenkins preached from Mark 14, 3, in which passage the anointing of Jesus is related. He gave several instances to show the gentleness and gracefulness of the Saviour in bestowing gifts. He was equally graceful in receiving gifts, as was shown by the pretty incident rp, corded in the text. He aceepi Mary's offering with tenderness :1n;! a spirit of sincere gratitude. Chil- dren could be taught to be generoa,; by the graceful way in which one re ceived small gifts from them. Christ never accepted a gift without giving something. Mary received a great joy in return for what she expended on the spikenard. What we gave to God we would get back with com- pound spiritual interest. Let us give to God our best in thought and deed,

He had been I working in the Rhondda, but had worked at the Navigation Colliery for 15 months before he met his death.

The father of deceased had a daughter living in the Rhon- dda, and there was some talk of her son marrying her. She made up her mind to go and stop the wedding be- cause it would not be legal. By Mr. Prosser: From the time of stopping the marriage with his half- sister. he had been home several times. At the time the wedding was appointed to take place deceased was living in Park Street, Penrhiwceiber. The Federation had previously claimed £ 80* on her behalf, but later refused to fight the case. She had not gone so deep into the matter to know who was fighting, the case. Her husband brought home about £ 4 a week. -She gave the boy 5s. a week pocket money. He was not in compliance with the Federation. David Richards, husband of the previous witness, stated that de- ceased had lived for some time at his house.. Mr. Prosser, addressing His Hon- our, referred to the projected mar- riage of deceased with his half- sister. His Honour: Yes, it was illegal be- cause it comes within the laws of con- sanguinity, and apart from the law was a very serious thing, as they were close blood relations.
