Mr Stewart Mart; M.E., OR the Eisteddfod. A MEANS OF SPENDING THE MINER'S MONTHLY HOLIDAY. Mr Stewart Martin, M.E., of Dowlais, pre- siding at the recent eisteddfod at Abercynon, made some very appropriate observations in the course of his happy presidential address. "I have been to several meetings of the same nature as this," he said, "and have leamt that the most successful are those where every com- petitor has fairplay and a good hearing, whicii I am sure you will accord to them to-dav as I am more than anxious that this eisteddfod should pass off without a hitch. Music is as ratural to a Welshman as to a sailor, and any institution which tends to the culture of this divine gift deserves support. (Hear, hear). There can be no question that the eisteddfod affords a far notiler means of spending the monthly holiday than many workmen are in the habit of doing. "Life in all its phases is a series of competi- tions; be he singer, iron-worker, collier or tradesman, a man must needs be a competi- tor, for the desire to excel in itself builds up his manhood, and it is this resolve to win the prize rather than any other that has made the British nation what it is to-day." (Cheers). +
