Nid wyf yn gwybod beth sydd i'w gyfrif am hyn; ond credwyf mai nid bai y golygyddion ydyw, yn herwydd fy marn onest i ydyw y byddai y golygyddion yn barod i dderbyn gair am y dos- barth uchod fel unrhyw ddosbarth anall; ond iddynt gael defnyddiau genyf fi neu rywun arall. Felly gwelwn mai y fi as erilT sydd i'w beio, as beio hefyd, am beidio danfon defnyddiau. Yr wyf fi, Syr, yn credu y stori hono, sef "Parch i'r hwn y mae parch yn ddyledus." Dyna stori arall wyf yn hoff iawn o boni, sef, "Na chau safn yr yeh sydd yn dyrnu," &c. Wel, Syr, yr wyf yn credu am y "Preg'ethwyr Cy- northwyol," eu bod yn deilwng o barch mawr am eu hymdrech o blaid rhinwedd a daioni. Mae y dosbarth dan sylw yn haeddu parch am eu bod yn llafurio yn mhlith egJwysi gweinion; felly, y mae yn dilyn ol traed y gwr da hwnw a ddy- wedodd "Nyni, y rhai ydym gryfion a ddylem gynal gwaadid y rliaf gweiniaid, ac nid rhyngu ein bodd ein hunain." Yn y 'nwir i, mae cryn wirionedd yn y geiriau Saesoneg hyny, "Money makes the mare go." Dyna fe, Syr, "money makes everything go." Mae pethau yn myd y pregethu, fel y maent yn mhob byd arall, sef, Arian. Ond, nid yr arian yw hi byda'r "pregethwyr cynorihjwyol," yn herwydd, nid cynyg am Sabbothau yn yr eglwysi lluosog, a chryf y maent hwy; ond eglwysi bychain a gwan, ie, eglwysi a fyddai heb weinidogaeth dair rhan o bob bhvyJdyn, oni bae am y pre- gethwyr cynorthwyol. Felly, mae ein pregeth- wyr dan sylw yn deilwng o barch mawr, am y gwasanaeth a wnant mewn cylchoedd gwan. Eto, mae y dosbarth yma yn ddidrail iawn i'r eglwysi, yn herwydd, nid gan yr eglwysi y maent yn derbyn eu haddysg. Na, maent yn gwneud ymdrech galed i ddiwyllio eu meddyliau a gwy- bodaeth Feiblaidd beth bynag, a hyny heb un draul i'r eglwysi. Cofiwch chwi, Syr, mae yn myned yn faich ar eglwysi i dalu yn ddrud am addysg pregethwyr, a thalu yn ddrud am dipyn o wasanaeth ar y SabbotL Ond am y "Pre- gethwyr Cynorthwyol," nid ydynt yn beichio neb, ond yn llafurio i gasglu gwybodaeth fudd- iol, a theimlad parod i gyfranu hwnw, heb ofyn dim, "Beth i chwi yn dalu am supply?"

Hwy a osodasant arno warchae penderfynol, a daeth byddin gref o'r Amglo-Normanaidd i'w herbyn.

Love to Help Others. < When a person has been saved from the agonies of a terrible and untimely death, or, in- deed, when he has avoided intense suffering of any kind, it is only natural that he should be grateful and desire that others should be bene- fited by his fortunate experience. Such has been the inspiration of the following letter, written June 28th, 1868, by Mr James Wilson, Station Road, Hooton, near Chester: "In October,1896, I was taken ill, and at once consulted one of the best doctors in town, who told me I had inflam- mation of the kidneys. I went to bed, and re- mained under his treatment, but gradually got worse, and at the end of six weeks, he told my wife he could not do anything more for me, it was Bright's disease I was suffering from, and only a question of hours, just how long my strength would last. Dropsical swelling exten- I ded from head to feet. I was blind for over a week. A friend who Came in to see me advised my wife to try Warner's Safe Cure, which we did. The first few doses gave me relief, and at the end of three weeks I was able to get up. I continued taking it, and I am eomplefcely cured in fact, I have driven a cab since last August, and have been out many times until two and three o'clock in the morning, yet I am a stronger and healthier-looking man than ever I have been, indeed, I never enjoyed better health, and all who see me are astonished. I thank God for the day when first I hear3 of Warner's Safe Cure, for I am certain that it saved my life. "I feel that fJiis wonderful medicine-Wa -tier 1 Safe Cure—cannot be too widely known."
Pontypridd Church Sunday School Association. PRESENTATION OF A SHIELD. I The annual meeting sf the Pontypridd Church Sunday School Association was held on Thurs- day, when Canon Roberts, Llandaff, addressed a large congregation of Sunday School teachers and frienus at fert. Katherine's Church. The service was conducted by the Rev James Thomas the organist being Miss Snape. At eight o'clock an adjournment was made to the Parish room, there to conduct the business of the association. The attendance was very large, and the presi- dent, Mr Frank Thomas, occupied the chair. The minutes of the last meeting having been read by the Rev James Thomas, Mr Firbank King presented a handsome shield to the association. He hoped it wouid be an incentive to the younger ones to attend the Sunday Schools, and keep them up to the mark. He thought the shield would be the means of making the zchools compete with each other to see which could put in the best attendance, and do the best work, and he further hoped the shield would be appreciated. Mr King compli- mented the designers upon the excellent manner in which they had done their work. On behalf of fhe association Mr Frank Thomas thanked Mr King for his handsome present. In return the only thing he could ask the donor to do was to become a member of the association, for they wanted men of his stamp in their midst. The Vicar, the Rev J. P. Griffiths, M.A., on behalf of his parishioners, also thanked the donor. He hoped the shield would create new fire and enthusiasm in them, and Chat it would be an incentive to put all fheir energy into the work. Mr A. Sutcliffe, the visitor of the schools, pre- sented his report, in whioh he candidly pointed out the defects in the school: as well as bestow- ing praise where necessary. He gave a detailed result of his visit to each school, and stated that three of the schools were very near as regards the marks. He placed them in the following order: -St. Mark's, St. Matthew's (junior), and St. Matthew's (senior). The things he had taken into consideration in preparing his report were the tallowing:-Organisa.Uon, officers, order, general arrangements, meWo'd, quality of teach- ing (especially with the junior department),sing- ing, hymns, and responses, regularity of officials, teachers, and taught, and growth and develop- ment. For the next three months, therefore, the shield would be held bf St. Mark's. In the absence of Mr Hobbs, lie superintendent of St. Mark's, Mr Gegg received the shield and briefly returned thanks. The following cfficers were elected for the ensuing year: -President, Mr Frank Thomas; vice-president, Rev T. R. Williams; visitor, Mr A Sutcliffe, and secretary, Rev James Thomas. At the close of the meeting all present sat down to an excellent supper provided by the ladies.

GRANOLITHIC OR NATIVE STONE? PONTYPRIDD MASONS AND THE SCHOOL BOARD. When Mr James Richards presided over the monthly meetiag of the Pontypridd School Board on Tuesday, the following letter was read from the secretary of the Pontypridd Operative Stone Masons' Society, Mr John W. Spry: "At a special meeting of this Lodge I was instructed tj write your Board respecting the granolithic steps that your Board have decided to substitute and the following resolution was passed at that meeting: -Tbat, ws, the Operative Stone Masons at Pontypridd, strongly protest against th, use of granolithic for paving or steps, see- ing that the importation is detrimental to our craft in depriving us of our labour, and that if stone steps were used as first specified in those schools as mentioned above, they would be more durable and more safe for the children, as we find that granolithic steps when completed the surface is brought up to a slippery nature almost like glass, and would, therefore, be not very safe for the children to travel. Trusting that our resolution will meet with some support with the members of the Board, and that in all future contracts let by the Board our resolution should be considered." The Chairman: Can you refer to the con- tract? The Clerk (Mr D. Milton Jones): There would be nothing in the contract about this; it would be in the specification. Mr W. Jones-Powell: And the specification, I believe, mentioned native stone. I don't think it is right to send away for fcheae granolithic steps or paving or anything else when we live in a part of the country where we have the best stone in the world. Even if it costs a little more, I think it's our duty to support home labour, and I most strenuously oppose going in for granolithic steps. The Chairman was very glad to hear Mr Pow- ell's remarks. If the specification said they should use this stone, he thought the Board should pay whatever extra amount it would cost the contractor to use native stone. Mr Powell: It is in the specification, and they should go by the specification. I am informed that owing to some little extra in Cilfynydd or the Lan Wood school they use granolithic to make up the difference, and the architect sayi that it will save £100, more or less, in the dress- ing over of native stone, and they use it to make up those extras.. If there are extras, why not pay for them in the ordinary way? Mr J. W. John: Will they save 41.00 in that alone ? Mr Powell: In labour and dressing. Mr Phillip Jones: I propose that whatever addition there is to pay for it, and if there's any extras to pay for that. Mr J. W. John suggested having the architect present at the next meeting. The Clerk said the steps at Cilfyaydd had Beeia put in two months ago. Mr Jones-Powell did not know that the archi- tect had such power as to make the great altera- tion of putting in these steps without consulting the Board. The Chairman: He has not the power. The Clerk: The Board has not been consulted i» similar occasions at all. Ultimately it was agreed to ask the architect to attend the next meeting. In the meantime the work of putting in the granolithic steps at the Lan Wood schools was to be stopped. Mr J. W. John: Is granolithic more durable than stone P Father McManus: I am informed it is. Mr Jones-Powell: There is less trouble in 5. ing.
A Cigarette Maker's Romance. 0Qe of the most striking wglp':?; features of _-)) the East End JjY of London is uXw manner v Tr~'ii A 'n which it j has become £ vJA ) peopled with u I T\ the Jewish (k /Wol race: many y/r^trades and jS^SSst occupations are almost -^HS» exclusively in their hands and among these, the business of hand-made cigarettes finds employment for hundreds of the Hebrew womankind. A reporter on the East London Advertiser, was recently deputed to find out a young Jewess who for months had been sick unto death; she had to give up her work, and the doctor described her condition almost hopeless. It was tn fimi out the truth about this affair thltThe reporter tailed on Miss Ethel Samuels, at 8, Beaumont Cottages, Beaumont-square, E. A young woman in all the beauty and charm of perfect health met him; it was difficult to believe that her life had been in danger. But the story of her trial was a surprising one. ".It was about Christmas, 1896," Ethel began, that I began to fall a victim to Ansemia! Gradually my condition became worse and worse, until at last a doctor was called in. His treatment, however, did not seem to do me any good, and at last I had to give up my business as cigarette maker. Then I had to take to m: bed, and on one occasion I had to remain there seven weeks, and on a second time three weeks at last the doctor said the only chance I had was to go right away. It was about this time that I called to mind the cures of Miss Da Costa and Miss Emanuel, who live near by, and I thought that if Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People :ured them they might cure me So I bought a box of the Pills. Before I had finished its contents I felt a great improvement. I then gave up the doctor-as he bad given me up- and persevered with the Pills, in all I had three boxes, and now feel fully recovered." She added, "I am now able to go to business again." "It is all true," Mrs. Samuels joined in. Ethel was very ill; she had to give up work altogether and take to her bed. I shall never forget what we owe to Dr. Williams'Pink Pills." Nor shall I," said Miss Samuels. "I shall always remember how ill I was. I would be seized with faiating fits, then have intolerable pains in the limbs and in the head, but now I have no pain of any sort to complain of." Thus concluded a most interesting interview, and though the circumstances may appear extraordinary, Miss Samuels' cure will be under- stood when it is explained that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills act directly on the blood; thus it is that they are so famous for the cure of ansemia, indigestion, consumption, rheumatism, scrofula, general weakness, and to rest-ore pale and sallow complexions to the glow of health. They are also a splendid nerve and spinal tonic, and thus have cured many rases of paralysis, locomotor ataxy, neuralgia, St. Vitus'dance, ana nervous headache. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are obtainable of all chemists, and of Dr. Williams' Medicine Company, 46, Holborn- viaduct, London, at 2s. 9d a box, or six boxes for 13s. 9d.f but are genuine only with the full name, Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People printed in red on the pink wrapper.

The vestries of Nazareth (B.), Carmel (C.M.), Trerhondda (I.), Salem Newydd and English Wesleyan, have been placed at the disposal of the committee from the commencement. The committee have received a total amount of £ 431 6s 10s. On Monday last, 1,862 lbs. of bread was again distributed, this being the final distribution. TREORKY. As a natural sequence to the long and pro- tracted struggle which came to a close last week, the Treorky Relief Fund has been closed as far as contributions are concerned, the final instal- ments, including donations from sections of glee singers from Treorky, who have been touring North Wales and North of England with a view of obtaining contributions towards the fund. The secretary of the fund last week received from Mr Tom Williams' party a sum of 10s from Colwyn Bay, while the section of Mr John Bebb's party, under the conductorship of Mr Maldwyn Howells, sent £3 back as the result of a concert held at York. The latter party also sang at Rowntree's Chocolate Manufactory, at York, and the employees of the latter place were so delighted that they subscribed £4 4s 6d as a eollection, the employers adding a similar total thus making a nice sum of 98 9s, which was accordingly received in due course. In review- ing the supply of relief last week, from statistics received, we find that the number of applicants were much greater than usual, reaching the total of 1,300—in excess of any previous week. The number of meals distributed last week readied over the stupendous number of 13,500- a fact which will speak for itself the magnitude of the want which is eKperienced in the locality, and information which will leave the reader to gauge the outgoing expense, and the necessary discretion and care required to cope with the manipulation of the funds. Now that the lamented crisis Has (reached a termination- whether satisfactory or otherwise—taking a glance at the management of the above fund, we cannot refrain from expressing the opinion that, with its present handsome surplus, the Treorky fund, supported so loyally as it was, has been one of, if not the most, successful in the principality. At the opening of the struggle, they were in narrow straits, but the indefatigable effojytg of the committee with the sacrificing sec- retary, Mr E. S. Morgan, resulted in a speedy revival; and within a few weeks they were financially in a healthy condition. Then, to more successfully meet the ever increasing de- mands made upon their resources, an appeal emanated from all the respective ministers of the place, and which was sent to various church- es and chapels throughout Wales. Thousands of circulars were sent out, with the desirable re- sult that hearty response, accompanied by hand- some donations, were being duly received by the secretary, some of these receipts amounting on an occasional week, to the nice total of £70 or JB80. This successful appeal was directly the means of establishing the fund on a sound and proper footing, and notwithstanding that dur- ing the very latter few weeks, the general con- tributions were declining, and the demand in- creasing, still there was more than sufficient in hand to meet all requirements, and at the end of last week, when the closure was applied, there was still over JE300 a surplus. Of this total £ 50 was generously handed over to the neighbouring fund at Pentre; on application from an influ- ential deputation, consisting of Mr E. H. Davies, J.P., the Rev William Lewis, vicar; Rev G. Makin, and Mr Howell Howells. There remains a balance of about £ £ 5"0 to be disposed of, and the committee intend distributing a supply of food to those who are encumbered with families, ranging from the value of 58 to 10s, sufficient to last for the week. It must not be forgotten that the local tradesmen and commercial mag- nates have also contributed greatly to the fund, both in money and provisions, and great credit is due to them for their ready responses to the repeated appeals made and at such a critical period.
