♦ OTES FROM PORTHCAWL. Once more the holiday season has brought its usual influx of Rhondda visitors to this justly popular little watering place. Of course, there are visitors here from London, Birmingham, and many English towns; but the familiar "iaith yr hen wlad" is highly conspicuous. The sad fatality to William Stephens, fireman, Cilfynydd, brought forth ready Welsh sympathy. There are some very striking facts in connection with the lamentable accident. The deceased had just taken his two children back from the water to the mother. He returned, and five minutes afterwards had disappeared, and found a watery grave in the presence of his wife and children. A brave but futile attempt was made to find him. It is said that the deceased had escaped from two colliery explosions, the last one bein? at Cilfynydd. Though having thus escaped the hazards of a miner's toil, it is sad to think he lost his life on a holiday! Bathers, unfortunately, are too venturesome, and year after year adds 10 the number of those who find a watery grave while seeking health. Mr E. It. Davies, J.P., Pentre, deserves praise for his services. He saw that the widow wanted nothing, and the visitors, by means of collecting books and concerts collected over EZO. Young Powell, of Treherbert, the boy preacher created an unusually favourable impression by his two excellent sermons at the Baptist Chapel, which was quite unable to seat the crowds who wanted to hear him. He read the lessons well, and offered a most appropriate prayer; his sermon was a most happy one in conception and delivery; while hisd modest charmed all. His father is a signalman on the T.V.R., and young Powell attended Mr M. O. Jones's school first and afterwards went to the Ystrad Higher Grade and Organised Science School, the able master being Mr Llew. Jones. Let us hope that Divine Providence will rise young Powell to be a strong power in the pulpit of our land. already renowned for its excellent preaehers. Among the visitors, besides Mr E. H. Davies, is the Rev J. Thomas, M.A., Myrtle Grove, Liverpool, whose career from a collier boy to f be first class M.A. of London University, is truly a marvellous one; while his pulpit oratory has charmed thousonds of our English friends over the border. The sermon he delivered at the Baptist Union meetings may be read in "The Baptist" for last week, and is, like all his ser- mons, well worth a close study. Mrs Thomas is with him, as well as Mrs D. W. Davies, Maesy- ffynon, his mother-in-law. We are glad to see that he has recovered so well from his long ill- new. A goodly number of the teaching fraternity of Rhondda are here, as also Mr and Mrs Geo. Knill, Mrs Dan Evans, Llwynypia- Mrs Ham- mond, Clvdach Vale; Mr J. W. Richards, chem- ist, and a lot of old inhabitants from Rhondda with peculiarities that would be well worth men- tioning if space and time permitted.
