Jones, chairman of Cardiff Board of Guardians, and others. The party enjoyed the spread laid before them by the kindness of the Host and Hostess of Talygarn. Tho Host, after proposing the Queen's health, submitted a toast to the Board of Guardians. He said that al- though of late years the Board had been in- creased in number, he, as chairman, felt no difficulty whatever in the exercise of his office to carry on the business of the Board amicably. He koped that all of them would be returned at the forthcoming election, and that thev would have the pleasure of working together in the interest of the ratepayers. (Hear, hear). On the Host resuming his seat, M rE. H. Davies, J.P. (vice-chairman), very appropriately respon- ded on behalf of tha Guardians, and all friends present, and proposed a very hearty vote of thanks to Mr and Mrs Clerk for their kind in- vitation. This was seconded by Rev W. Rees, and supported quaintly by the. veteran Guard- ian, Mr James Richards, Before taking an- other stroll through the grounds, Mr E. H. Davies called upon Mrs W. Rees to render a son? whioh she did in a very able manner. After this the company were amused with a with a "Can Serch," by Mr Alfred Jones, and a humourous recitation by Mr D. Fenwick,entitled "The Bashful Bachelor," and to close Mr E. H Davies led an old Welsh hymn to the tune "Aberystwyth" to the great'delight of the English guests. Tea. was partaken of on the lawn, and it was amusing to see all the com- pany enjoying themselves in rustic fashion. The party returned by the 5.28 train from Llantri- sant, after enjoying a most pleasant day. The weather was glorious, and Mr and Mrs Godfrey Clark seemed fo enjoy the company immensely, and it should be said that the noble family at n' Talygarn not only invite the Guardians, but they also have a heart, human and kind enough to invite the poor children from the Cottage Homes and the aged poor of the Workhouse to their picturesque residence to enjoy a day annually. May they be long spared to enjoy their wea.,ti, for we rejoice to think that. such as Mr and Mrs Clark are possessed of wealth,for they are gener- ous and kind enough to brighten the lives of others who are less fortunate.
