This prize was generously offered by two local gentlemen to the member who would bring in the largest number of new members during the last twelve months. Bro. Maddocks, in con- .gratulating Bro.

Although the weather was unfa- vourable, it was evident from the number of members residing in Porth, Ynvsybwl, etc., who attended the parade, that considerable interest is being evinced in the local organisation of the Country Members' Representative Association, and if inereascl activity may be anticipated undoubtedly some important and essential re- forms in connection with the Society may be realised. The members assembled near the Taff .Vale Railway Station, and, headed by the Pont- ypridd Town Band, under the: conductorship of Mr J. H. Foxhall, proceeded to attend divine service at Carmel English Baptist Church. The Rev E.E.Probert delivered an excellent discourse which the members greatly appreciated. He prefaced his discourse by an appeal to all mem- bers to unite together in the bonds of brother- hood, and advised uoung men not already mem- bers of Friendly Societies ,to make due pro- vision for their moment of affliction. We are pleased to learn from the remarks delivered by Rev Mr Probert the fact of his having been a member of this excellent Society for 21 years, has proved a strong argument, when counselling the young- to be provident in their early days, in order that they may secure the desired reliet when stricken with the innumerable complaints tnan is subject to. We are pleased to learn that the rev. gentleman, during his membership, has not had occasion to seek any relief from the Society. That he should still continue his sub- scription in order to assist others in more un- favourable circumstances is an example that inust be commended, inasmuch as it is convinc- ing- that what he preaches he also practices. Amongst the number present at the parade we noticed Mr F. Judd, president of the local branch: Mr D. Williams, treasurer: Mr J. T. Evans, hon. see.; Mr D. Thomas, Wood road; Mr W. Williams, as well as several ether promi- nent members from Porth and the immediate districts. The following members acted as mar- slialls: Bros. J. W. Coles (Ynvsvbwl), W. H. Harris, G. Mereditii. W. T. Jones, W. Marsh and D. J. Davies (Porth), W. Oliver. C. H Jacobs. W. D. Anstes, and D. Lewis and J. Mitchell.
