Ponarth Railwaymen's Church Parade. I This annual church parade and Orphan Fund service in connection with the Penartli Branch of the I Amalgamated Society of Railway Servants, took place on Sunday last, August 11th. The members met outside their lodge-room, Pill-street, Cogan, and formed in procession, headed by the Cogan Military Band, under Bandmaster John Bryant, and six little children wearing the orphans' sashes. The procession left Cogan at 2.30 p.m., marching up vVindsor-roadj through Glebe-street, to the We3leyan Chapel, Arcot- I street, the trustees of which had kindly granted the use of the building. The service was a very euttille siastic one. The chapel choir, who kindly consented to assist the railway men, led the singing an a spirited manner. The railway men were also favoured by a young lady soloist in the person of Miss Emma Webb, who sang, by special request, of the railway men, a solo entitled The Holy City," of which she gave a good and masterly rendering.

ThS preacher went on to m -ke a special appeal on behalf of the Railway Men's Orphan Fund, and said that the railway men had a great claim on the generosity of the public of this country. Men, he said, who were in constant risk of their lives, and who the travelling public owed their safety and comfort to when travel- ling over the different railways of the country. He said that those railway men were prompted by the love that sprang from Jesus Christ Himself in trying their best to support their orphan children, and he hoped the Christian spirit would animate their hearts that afternoon, and that they would give liberally to that deserving fund. The collection was then made, which realised £4 3s Id. Th3 amoant collected en route in the procession was 16s lid, making in all £ 3. After the service the members again formed in pro- cession, and marched back to Cogan, where they dis- persed, Thus ended a third series of what appears to be for the railway men future successful annual gat he ri ng 3.
