Grand Concert at Penarth. On Thursday evening, Mr C. Emlyn Jones, the new Welsh tenor, with his celebrated London Concert Party, visited Penartb, and gave a Concert of excep- tional merit in Andrews' Large Hall. The attendance was very small, a great contrast to the crowd which assembled the week previous to hear the Snowflake Minstrel troupe. Rarely has such a treat been afforded Penarthians, and when it is considered that a strong local committee undertook the management, and have for weeks paiit been exerting themselves 10 make the Concert a success, it is to be regretted that their efforts were not rewarded with a bumping house. Since Mr Jones last visited Penartb, his party has undergone several changes, but we shall not be wrong in saying that the artistes who appeared on Thursday night, without exception, merited the very highest encomiums. The programme opened with a quartette, otrange Adventure," and was followed by Mr Barry Lyndon, of the Queen's Glee Singers, who rendered" Big Ben in a masterly manner, the piece being specially suited to his deep bass voice. Miss Mabel Johnson, who possesses a sweet soprano voice, sang V\Tith my guitar," being loudly applauded. Mr C. Emlyn Jones was in the best of voice, aud sang I" Come into the garden.

When Madame Emlyn Jones appeared on the platform to sing "The forge and the she was presented, amidst hearty applause, with a handsome bouquet of the choicest flowers. The aria, "Roberto on lucbe Adoro," by Miss Clara Dowle, the leading soprano, was exquisitely rendered, and the duet, We 11 laug and King," was greatly appreciated by the audience, the executants being Mr Jones and Mr Barry Lyn- don. The par.-song "Moonlight," by the party, terminated the first part of th programme.

Presbyterian Sunday School An- niversary. On Sunday last three services were held to cele- brate the Anniversary of the Presbyterian (Plassey Street) Sunday-school. The preacher was the Rev. R. R. RQberts, B. A., IAL B., a young man possessing great oratorical power, who, both morning and evening, held his audience spell-bound as he dilated upon the texts, Bless the Lord 0 my soul," (Psalm ciii, 2), and the words from Rev. xxi, 22, And I saw no temple therein, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it." In the after- noon a special service for the young was conducted by Mr Roberts. After prayer by Mr Dykes, the following programme was rendered :—Recitations, 66Tbe Tender Shepherd," Miss Jones Where 1 find a refuge," Master W. Tibbett; "Just for to-day,' Miss B. Bailey Down with the false, up with the trae," by Masters Smallcombe, Fisher, and Guy: Christ's address to the young man," Mr J. Halley "The girl's morning prayer, Miss A. Jones: "Baby," Miss Millard and party;Love to the Saviour," Miss H. Smith; Will you buy," Miss Ella Nicholas; The slum child's heaven," Misses Coni. I bear and Bailey. Miss Watts very sweetly sang "Over the line," the congregation joining in the chorus. Several special hymns were sung by the people, and Mr Roberts gave an excellent address. He suggested that it was a beautiful thing to be a teacher, for through the teacher's life and influence God showed himself to the children. And then what a privilege it was for teachers to have little children around them, to speak to them. to watch them grow up into life, to choose for the Master, and then go on serving Him. It was not in the hereafter only, but here and now that faithful teachers wear the crown. Mr David conducted the singing, which was of a very effective character, and Miss Monroe presided at the piano. ":=:7"

Rev. I. 0. Stalberg, Penarth, FROM THE REOOBD. Some of us still remember the courageous action of the subject of this sketch, some time ago in denouncing Golf playing on the Lord's Day And in this action we see the chatacter of our brother manifested in its true light. He is not afraid to give his views or express his thoughts on any question, though experi,, ncp. and training have led him to be cautious and not to rush in where angelB fear to tread." When I called to see our brother the other day, Mrs. Stalberg informed me that he was out visiting some of his sick members. This led me to ask the kind lady if her husband was a syistematic visitor. Does he visit regularly or only occasionally." I was then informed that I should undoubtedly see "He visits the sick members regularly, but the other members he visits only occasionally." Mr. Stalberg at the Prayer Meeting. And I was not deceived. He was there and always is, if at home and well. As the service had commenced I took myself to a back aeat and bowed my head in silent prayer and begged for a blessing. The prayer was answered. The divine presence was with us and each one felt that it was good to be there. The brethren and sisters received me kindly, and although I was a perfect stranger I felt quite at home. The pastor delivered a most thoughtful and nourishing address on the deadening influence of unbelief. I was sur- prised to hear him deliver such a well thought out discourse in a Prayer Meeting. But my carnality was soon rebuked with the thought that these people were the hungry and thirsty souls in Zion, and that the best a pastor could give was not too good for them. No iv let us come to a few personal details anent our friend's life. Isaac Octavius Stalberg is of Jewish descent., his father, Isaac Stalberg, being the first convert of the family to the Christian faith. Mr Stalberg was born in London, July 27th, 1857, and was educated at the Grammar School. Hodderdon, Herts. Our friend was brought up in the Church of England till about 20 years of age, when, on account of Baptism, he renounced the Church and joined the Baptists. His first attempt at preaching turned on a complete failure. He was 4010 nervous that he knew not what he said, or where be stood. This made him so disgusted with himself, that he decided never to preach again. But this decision he kept oaly for three years. Still during that. period he was a very active worker in the vineyard of his Lord. He had a class in the week evenings, of nearly 40 poor boys, half of whom were Jews. No one but the Omniscient himself knows the final result of the efforts of the young teacher among those boys. Three years after his first attempt at preaching, be made another, and this time with success. This was at Reading, in the King's Road Baptist Chapel. A short time after this, be entered the Pastor's College, and remained there for 3 yea,rs. His chief subjects at College were classics and theology, the latter of which he was specially fond of. In 1885 he received and accepted a call to Faningdon, Berks. During his ministry at Farringdon, which lasted 4 years, the Chapel was renovated and several new members were added to the Church, the first female being Miss Annie Carter, the daughter of Mr John Car- ter.who is now, and as she says,, ever will be Mrs Stalberg. In January, 1889, our brother received a call to the Stan well Road Baptist Chapel, Penarth, and here he has laboured ever since, doing some good and solid work tor the Master—the special result of which is, the new Chapel which our friends at Stanwell Road are now in the course of erecting. Mr Stalberg is specially fond of composing hymns, some of which our readers are already acquainted with. His favourite reading is biography and poetry, though he is very fond of reading John Kerr, F. W. Robertson, and Dr. Maclaren. He is very much attached to his young people, and believes the Christian Endeavour is calculated to do a great deal of good both to the young people them- selves, and to our Churches. But," he remarked, in reply to a query, the chief enemy of our Churches and of our young people, is Pleasure. We seem to have mistaken pleasure for happiness, and amusement for pure joy. And this demon Pleasure eats up the spirituality of our Churches and the consecrated energies of our young people. I don't think we need fear anything so much as worldly and carnal pleasure and our only hope is to try and get our young people and others as well, to taste the jLy and blessed happiness of a life fully consecrated to God." Mr. Stalberg is now delivering to his young people a series of papers on the following subjects 1.—The teacher in relation to himself. 2.—The teacher in relation to his work, 3.—The teacher in relation to his Bible# 4/—T he teacher in relation to bis leeson.
