Llantwit Major Eisteddfod.


Llantwit Major Eisteddfod. The fourth annual eisteddfod promises to be a grand success. As usual, it will be held in a spacious marquee in a. field near the new rail- way station, and it is to be regretted that the new line will not be opened in time for tho eis- teddfod. A good number of brakes will, how- ever, meet the trains at Cowbridge, and, given a fine day, the drive through the beautiful Vale of Glamorgan will be a treat to lovers of nature. The 'Squire of the Ham, Llantwit Major (Mr lutyd Nicholl) will be the president, and for the fourth time a Pontypriddian, in the person of Mr Morgan Morgan, Bodhyfryd, will act as conductor. Mr Ben Davies, the chaired and crowned bard, will adjudicate the poetical effu- sions, while Mr E. Williams, L.C.M., Pontymis- ter, and Mr D. Thomas, F.T.S.C., of Bridgend, will take charge of the musical department. The recitations will be adjudicated b- the Rev S. Jones, Treos, and Mr A. Williams, school- master, Porth. The exciting ambulance com- petition will be judged by Doctors Thomas, of Bridgend, and Spreatt, Llantwit Major, while Mrs' Ct.rne, St.. Dormatt's Castle, and Miss Thomas, Dmlaiids (who, by-the-bye, is a daugh- ter of the late Mr inund Thomas, LIwyn- celyn) will decide upon the merits of the com- petitors in fancy work. Mr D. J. Williams, of Dolgelly, and Miss Annie Williams, Llantwit 'Jajor, are the accompanists for the day. In addition to the intellectual treat which awaits the visitors to the eisteddfod, the committee have made extensive preparations for refreshing the inner man; and it is intended to supply re- freshments at very moderate prices. The Com- mittee, and especially the secretary, Rev B. Lewis, have exerted themselves to tho utmost to make this eisteddfod, like its predecessors, a success, and wo are sanguine that their efforts will be rewarded. In the evening, as usual, a grand concert will be riven, when the renowned Llnnrllv soprinc. Madame Thomas, and Oilier exeunt artistes, will tali; i&it.
