They have also sent bunches of pheasant eye narcissi to all the injured firemen, with cards attached bearing the words: "Wish- ing your recovery to health on behalf of 1st Aberdare G.G. (B. M. Rich- ards, captain)." All the firemen are now progressing very favourably. OBITUARY. — On Thursday lat^ the remains of the late Mr. G. Cardinali, Commercial Street, were interred at Aberdare Cemetery. The mourners were: Mr. Antonio Cardin- ali, brother; Messrs. G. Bracchi, L. Bracchi, T. Scarsela, Cruci, Andrew Sidoli, Rabaoiti, Fulgoni, Berni, and M. Servini. The Rev. Father Hallahan officiated. The late Mr. Cardinali had a long illness, and passed away at the early age of 31 years. He leaves a widow and two children. TABERNACLE. At a one hour's service held at Tabernacle on Sun- day evening the Rev. T. M. Jeffreys took as his theme, "Righteousness and Peace," his text being Psalm 85. 10, "Mercy and truth are met together, righteousness and peace have kissed each other." Some to- day, he said, held that there could not be peace without righteousness. Others, known as pacifists, contend- ed that there could not be righteous- ness without peace. The Psalmist in the text saw the two, righteousness and peace, reconciled in God. How was it possible? Only by becoming attuned to the mind and nature of God. Let us do our best to encourage and facilitate the coming of the era when righteous peace and peaceful righteousness should dominate the earth. CARMEL (B.). The preacher at Carmel on Sunday was the Rev. J. D. Thomas, Ffrwd, Mountain Ash. At the morning service he preached from Romans 15. 13. He spoke on "Christian Hope." What was the ground of our hope? That the good must eventually prevail and that righteousness would thrive. It looked just now as if right would be forever on the scaffold and wrong forever on the throne. But the good God was destined to prevail. There was a power not ourselves that made for righteousness, as Matthew Arnold said. This was in the world though not of the world, and would ultimately prevail. Why had America joined the Allies in the present war? Because she was con- vinced that we were on the side of righteousness. He believed that from all the baptism of blood on the continent there would emerge a day of redemption, that the dawn of liberty would succeed the darkness of universal strife. Let us believe in the inherent goodness of human nature.1 INTERMENT. On Friday last the remains of the late Mr. Alfred Davies, Albert Street, took place at the Aberdare Cemetery.
