Ferryside Girls' Friendly Society. ANNUAL MEETING. I May Day, 1896, was a long-looked for I day by the young women of Ferryside, it being the annual meeting and outing day of the Ferryside branch of the Girl's Friendly Society. It had been originally intended that the members should take a trip to the ancient ruins of Llanstephan Castle where the cup which cheers but does not inebriate was to be partaken of. It however trans- spired that the tide, which like the train, j waits for no man, would have receded too I far on the afternoon of that date to make 1 the voyage in any degree an enjoyable one, so at the last moment a deputation waited upon Miss Brogden, of Iscoed, who very kindly granted the party the loan of the grounds of this historical mansion for the afternoon. St Thomas's pretty little church contained a nice congregation in the afternoon, when 1 19 candidates were admitted as members of T the Girls' Friendly Society. The Rev Canon Williams was present, and to him had fallen the work of initiating the new members. The form of service, as sanctioned by the Bishop of the Diocese, having been gone through, tho rev. gentleman then addressed the members, basing his remarks upon the words :—37 Psalm, 37 and 38 verses," Mark the perfect man and behold the upright, for the end of that man is peace." Canon Williams also drew the atention of the words as found in the Common Prayer Book, which were, Keep innocency and take heed unto the thing which is right, for that shall being a man peace at the last." Having stated that these words wore regarded by most commentators as being the best transla- tion of the Hebrew verse, tho rev. gentleman proceeded in a simple but most earnest manner to exhort the members to keep, t treasure, and watch over the many things f which had been confided to each one of them by Almighty Gcd. They could be ( kept by good companionship by having communion, by watchfulness, by prayer, and by valuing every safeguard against temptation that they may have in their homes. They must not be daunted or cool down or discouraged. It was true that they had their difficulties and drawbacks, but these were meant to be use:l for the I strengthening of their own character. I They should also not be too confident, too self-reliant. In conclusion, ho would submit three rules for ttieir guidance :— (1.) Be true to yourselves. (2.) Be true to religion. (3.) Be true to Gcd. Mi1 W. II. Mitchell presided at the crgan with his usual ability. All tho ladies of the village are taking a keen interest in the Society, and among those present in the I sacred edifice were Mrs Dudley Drummond Miss Gwyn, Horton Villa Mi-ses Neville, Robert's-rest; Miss Dr Williams, and Miss Partridge, Llandrindod. At tho close of the service, the party started to Iscoed, where a splendid tea was enjoyed. Tea was partaken of in a field adjoining tho mansion, after which the fair sex indulged in a number of their much beloved games and sports. At dusk they returned home, each one loud in her praises of tho day's turn- out. Before leaving the grounds three hearty cheers were given Miss Biogden for her kindues3 in granting them permission to go on the grounds.
