YR ADRAN GYMREIG. I ER SERCHUS GOFFAWDWRIAETH; Am Michael Evans, Kingsbury Place, Cwmaman, yr hwn a hunodd yn yr Iesu, Mai 2il, 1916. Nid ydyw angeu i'r credadyn tlawd Yn ddim ond gorwel ei ddaearol rawd A phenrhyn pellaf addewidion Duw Lie try pob anial yn baradwys wiw. Mae hunanaberth yn ei wisgoedd glan Fan yma'n sefyll, tra mae'r sanctaidd dan Yn difa'i sorod oll, gan ddisgwyl hawl I groesi'r terfyn i'r tragwyddol wawl. Bu'r anwyl Michael Evans yma'n hir Yn disgwyl hawl i feddu'r dwyfol dir, A thystlal 'i wisg mai tua gwlad yr hedd Y teithiai'n eon trwy ddyfnderau'r bedd. "Roedd pob daearol swyn yn methu'n lan A llanw'i brofiad pur, adseiniiin can Y gwaredigion oedd yn denu'i frydj- A pharod oedd i'r alwad—gwyn ei fyd. Yn swyn unigedd gwlad y ganwyd ef, Caed olion gwlad&idd ar ei natur grd, Mvnyddoedd hi yn gryd i'w ieuanc oes, j Cyn iddo deimh. grvm un awel groes Yn chwythu dros draethellau'i fywyd or gwan, Na thonau Hid i dori dros v lan I aflonyddu ar heddyddol swyn Ei gartref gwledig rhwng y grug a'r: brwyn. Ni fu athrylith byd yn treulio awr Er ceisio'i wneud yn bersonoliaeth fawr, Ond Gethsemane, Pen y Bryn, a'r Groes A'i gwnaeth ef vn athrylith yn ei toes; Ymdrechodd radio wrth reolau'r ne', Ni wyddai aswy hwn beth wnai ei dde, Ei gariad guddiai ei drngaredd rad, Na wyddai neb am dani ond ei Dad. Aherthai'n gyson ar allorau glan, Ac amynt cafwyd nodau'r sanctaidd dan, Pan ddyrchai'r mwg hyd at yr orsedd wen Dychwelai yn fendithion ar ei ben, Nes peri iddo weithio gyda bias Yn mreision erddi a gwinllanoedd gras, Ac am y fendith clywyd yr hen sant Yn diolch beunydd yn Seiadan'r Plant. Oferedd wylo pan fo sicrwydd ffydd Yn dweyd fod Michael Evans heddvw'n rhydd Ar heol y goleuni, heb ddim braw, Yn nghwmni'r Oen, a cherub ar bob llaw. Os hryn y dioddpf fu ei borth i'r net Fe wyddai fod ei Dad yn cwrdd ag(ef, Aeth fewn i'w hawl, teyrnasu mwy a fydd Mewn gwlad na welir nos yn canlyn dydd. Cwmaman. DEWI LLWYD. —=—==—=—

OIL STORES ABLAZE. FIRE BRIGADE MEMBERS INJURED BY EXPLOSION. A fire broke out at Holwill and Co.'s oil stores, situated in the Old Mill Yard, Maesydre, Aberdare, on Saturday morning. It originated in the pumping shed about ten o'clock, how it is not known. The Fire Brigade were sum- moned, and, in command of Captain J. Davies, soon set about to extinquish the flames. There were two large tanks of oil on the premises, one containing about 1,000 gallons, and-the other 3,700 gallons. The latter tank was mounted on a trolley, and this was the one that suddenly exploded while the firemen were at close range battling with the blazing oil and wood. The tank which was mounted on a trolley is similarly shaped to a large boiler, with a lid on top. It was the lid which was blown up in the air for some hundreds of yards, and the flames, fed by the oil which escaped, spread tremendously and severely inj ured the following men about the face, head and hands:- Captain John Davies, Cardiff Street, Aberdare; William Williams, Cemetery Road, Trecynon; Samuel Harries, Hill Street, Aber- aman; W. G. Pink, 17pper Regent Street, Aberdare; James Harris, Little Wind Street, Aberdare; John Gethin. Collier's Row, Abernant; Thomas Williams, Elizabeth Street, Aberdare, and Harry Scourfield, 33 Pembroke Street, Aberdare. The report of the explosion was heard and felt over a mile distant. Previous to the explosion the Brigade had got the fire well under, but with the released oil from the large tank the con- flagration began afresh, and huge volumes of black smoke shot up in the air. A great deal of damage was done, the place being totally wrecked. The stores adjoin the T.V. Railway and some telegraph posts were badly scorched and wires cut. A large crowd had gathered m Gloucester Street outside the Yard, and Supt. Rees and Inspector Dan Griffiths were in charge. The injured men were attended to by Drs. Scalp, Martin Jones and Kiddle, and were conveyed home in motor-cars. We learn that all of them are progressing favourably, but it has been deemed necessary to take Mr. Tom Williams to the Merthvr Hospital.
HOW SOLDIERS BANISH ANY BAD FOOT TORTURES. Harry Lauder's practical help to the boys in the trenches. Aberdare Leader readers suffering from various painful foot troubles, such a." aching, tenderness, chilblains, callouses, corns, etc., may be inter- ested to learn what soldiers do for these, also to stop rheumatic pains in a few minutes, or relieve muscular sore- Photo.i EH~. ness and stiff joints. They sim- ply rest the feet in hot water con- taining about a tablespoonful of an ordinary sal- trates compound, concerning which Harry Lauder re- cently said "Hearing Reu- del Bath Saitjates mentioned as be- ing a likely com- fort for the boys in the trenches, and knowing from personal experience that it is excellent, I have sent out several packages, which have been much appreciated." Sergt. C. S. Turner, of the R.A.M.C., wrote: I could hardly credit the evi- dence of my own eyes when I saw what this remarkable natural curative water had done for 'trench foot,' corns, and other very serious foot afflictions. Corp. T. S. Wilburn, also of the R.A.M.C., wrote: "For rheumatic pains I have found this medicinal sal- trated water marvellously effective." NOTE.—Reudel Bath Saltrates should not be confused with ordinary patent medicines, ointments, etc. It is a well-known standard compound, exactly reproducing the curative constituents of famous natural medicinal springs, and forms similar highly medicated and oxygenated water. All chemists keep this fragrant and refreshing toilet pre- paration ready put up in convenient half-pound packets at very reasonable cost.
Trecynon and Llwydcoea Notes. BY MARCELLO. It was Puss in Boots at Trecynon, but it nearly came to boots in Puss at Llwydcoed. The family cat took a sudden fancy to the family canary, but before the bird in the cage had become a bird in hand five pairs of boots had been hurled at the rear of poor Pussy's anatomy. Now the appropriate refrain about Llwydcoed is "Has anyone seen our eat?" When the cat comes back 1 wonder will its nine lives be a match against the ten soles? The other day a handcart bearing the name of a local hostelry might be seen conveying bags of potatoes to some allotment or other. Two erstwhile customers were drawing it. They did not look over cheerful. Probably they thought it rather a dry job. Is Pro- hibition already in force in Marcello's area. Weary Willie looked weary indeed carrying the bag of potatoes home. I ex- pect they were seed spuds. At any rate he looked seedy. That blushing innocence from Heoly- felin is not all that she seems. I hope that she will bear in mind that a bird is known by its song rather than by its plumage. Ap Barley has been at it busily try- ing to make an englyn in English. I fear that he has broken his pledge again. However, the source of his in- spiration is at least questionable. Poor Ap has a gap beneath his cap.
Mountain Ash District Council. On Tuesday, May 8th. Present: Messrs. Noah Bowles. J.P. (chairman), W. Davies, W. Lamourn, Jas. Evans, T. W. Jones, George Neighbour, David Rogers, Griffith Evans, J.P., W. Mil- lar, Bruce Jones, with Messrs. A. Pin- combe (clerk), P Stock (accountant), W. G. Thomas (surveyor), Dr. A. T. Jones (medical officer) and H. T. Jones (sanitary inspector).
Penrhiwceiber's New Member. The Clerk and the Chairman gave a report of a public meeting held at Penrhiwceiber on Monday evening to consider the filling of the vacancy caused by the resignation of Councillor Evan Morris. The Chairman remarked that the meeting was well attended. There was no dearth of candidates for the office; there were 6 nominations. Mr. Bruce Jones It is such a popular position. The Chairman went on to say that the candidates were: Messrs. (Rev.) E. T. Williams, Tom Evans (Lee Hotel), J. P. Davies, Harry Morris, ex-Sergt. T. J. Bryer, and W. J. Hopkins, draper. The voting at the meeting resulted as follows: Williams, 71; Evans, 61; Davies, 44; Morris, 44; Bryer, 53; Hopkins, 36. The two names referred to the Council were Rev. E. T. Williams and Mr. Tom Evans. Both these gentlemen had had previous municipal experience,—the former having been a member of Moun- tain Ash Council for many years, and Mr. Evans having been a member and chairman of the Rhondda District Council. It was for the Council now to elect one of these two. He was sorry that Councillors G. H. Hall and Chas. Maddox were unable to be pres- ent to-day owing to attendance at a M iners' Conference, and Councillor Thos. Jones was indisposed. The Council voted by ballot, with the following result: Rev. E. T. Williams, 8 votes; Mr. Tom Evans, 2. Mr. AVil- liams was therefore elected.
Medical Officer's Report. During the last fortnight the follow- ing cases of infectious diseases were notified:—Scarlet fever, 1; erysipelas, 1; measles, 28; tuberculosis, 4.
Babies and Public Health. Arising from a circular from the Local Government Board dealing with the question of babies and public health, Mr. Bruco Jones said he was strongly of opinion that the maternity grant should be increased. Rev. George Neighbour said that a suggestion had been rtiade at the last meeting re formation of an Infant Wel- fare Consultation Centre. That would be a great help for their lady health visitors. At present the health visi- tors did not visit expectant mothers until the child was born. That was rather a weakness in the present sys- tem. Mr. W. Millar understood that the lady health visitors did visit expectant mothers. Dr. Arthur T. Jones said they did not. Referring to Rev. Geo. Neigh- bour's suggestion re formation of Cen- tre, similar to Aberdare, Dr. Jones said he was simply acting medical offi- cer, and he had his private practice to attend to as well. While he continued to work at present pressure it was im- possible for him to devote any time to the establishment -of such a Centre. He had lost his chauffeur—the military authorities had taken him. He was also short of assistants, which handi- capped him greatly. The Clerk observed that he had had several informal chats with the doctor concerning the setting up of a Centre, but the difficulties mentioned by the doctor were in the way. Replying to Mr. Bruce Jones, the Doctor said he agreed that there ought to be increased maternity benefit.
The Water Question. The Surveyor in his report stated that the total rainfall up to date since January 1st was 9.88, compared with 23.24 for the corresponding period of last year. He recommended that notices be issued warning people against wasting water. Mr. W. Lamburn asked what storage of water was at Penderyn Reser- voir. He understood the Surveyor to say at the last meeting there was 6-8 million gallons there. The Surveyor said there ought to he that quantity, but there was no water running in to obtain that store. The Aberdare Surveyor had informed him that day that there was a serious leak- age of water in the roadway opposite Aberaman Church. He had wired to Penderyn to stop the taps.
Allotments. The Surveyor reported that the Coun- cil had disposed of 18 tons 16 ewts. of seed potatoes, and he was expecting o more tons on the morrow. The price was 19s. per cwt. He had had -all- able assistance from Mr. Clem Ed- wards,. M.P., in procuring seed pota- toes for the district. The Council passed a vote of thanks to Mr. Edwards for his service.
A Piece of Land. Air. James Evans drew the attention of the Surveyor to a. piece of land at the bottom of New Road, Ynysybwl, where there was a junction of roads. Some person had fenced it in. He (Mr Evans) wished to know to whom that land belonged, the Council or the Es- n,, tate" The Surveyor did not know, and Mr James Evans moved, and Mr. D. Rogers seconded, that the Surveyor be directed to report.
10s. a Day. The owner of a house at Penrhiw- ceiber, residing at Abercwmboi, was re- ported by the Sanitary Inspector for not carrying out repairs to the house in question, as ordered by the Magis- trates. The owner was liable to a pen- alty of 10s. per day, and he would now apply to the magistrates to enforce that penalty.
Empty Hospital. It was reported that there were no cases at the Infectious Diseases Hos- pital, which was still empty. (Hear, hear.)
On Active Service. Major G. A. Evans, J.P., now sta- tioned at Chester, wrote acknowledg- ing the Council's kindness in electing him vice-chairman. He was grateful to the members for this mark of cour- tesy, especially in view of his enforced absence from the meetings. He was most pleased at the elevation of Mr. Noah Bowles to the chair, and of the election of his old friend Mr. James Evans to the position of second vice- chairman. In conclusion he wished a speedy end to this horrible war, for he was looking forward to rejoining his colleagues round the Council table.
ABEROARtANS DEATH IN CANADA. .Mrs. William Thomas tMiss Mary Jane Llewelyn) died at the Winnipeg General Hospital, Canada, on March 30th last, following an operation, at the age of 42 years. A funeral service was held at Clark's undertaking parlour on Sunday afternoon, April 1st, quite a number of Sou th Walians attending. The Rev. H. W. Griffiths, Welsh min- ister, officiated. The deceased came to Canada from Aberdare 18 years ago, and was married four years later to Mr. William Thomas, of North Wales, who is now left with four children.
EMANCIPATION." Crand Theatre, Aberaman. Those attending the above spacious building next week are promised an in- tellectual treat. The privileged critics who have witnessed the rehearsals of "Emancipation" predict an instantan- eous and huge success. Mr. Gwilym D. Phillips, the author, has gathered around him a brilliant cast of exper- ienced artistes, and the public mav rest assured that the lines delivered will be intelligently spoken, and audible in every part of the building. Mr. Phil- lips's Press opinions are unique. Here are a few —Honours fall to G. D. Phillips as the Rev. Eifion Harris" (South Wales Daily News, Mav 15, 1914). "The reserve of Mr. Gwilym D. Phillips in his splendid entrance was in the spirit of the French style of acting, a consummate study with the skill of a well-tried exponent of manv parts" (Western Mail loth May, 1914). Doctor Naunton Davies, the noted Welsh author, in the Western Mail, July 16th, 1914, said: "For versatility and true conception of two characters differing as much as black and white, it would be hard to find anything bet- ter than Mr. Gwilym D. Phillips' acting as Rey. D. Roberts in 'Dicky bach dwl.' At r. Lloyd George, the present Premier, singled Mr. Gwilym D. Phil- lips out as a "decided hit" in all his parts, and stated that "While Wales could turn out such brilliant artistes she had no need to fear the future of the Welsh Di •aina."—Mr Lloyd George, at Cardiff, May 16, 1914. "The whole performance went with a professional swing, and reflects great credit on Mr "-Torquay Observer, January 29th, 1913. "Perhaps the iiiostinstaii-, taneous success was that of Mr. Phillips."—Bradford Telegraph, June 9th, 1908. "He was the life of the piece, and Aberaman may well feet proud of him."—Aberdare Leader, May, 1914. A word to the wise is sum- cient. We advise the inhabitants of the Aberdare Valley to Book Now, and not be disappoint*^ later on. -:2: >
