Penrhiwceiber. Sr. David'd Day was celebrated in our town et the long room of the Lee Hotel, when a large number of friends met together to par- take of a sumptuous sapper under the presi- dency of Mr S. Shipton, clerk to the Llan- wonuo School Board. The carving knives were manipulated by the host, Mr R. Bevan, and Mr E. T. Richards. All present enjoyed themselves to their hearts' content. After the repast a social meeting was held. Mr Shipton presided, Mr E. T. Williams acting as vice- chairman. Toasts were proposed as foHows: "Tha Queen and Royal Family-" and "The Army and Navy," by the chairman,, which was ably responded to by Mr Willie Shipton, soli. eitcr. "Town and Trade" was proposed by Mr D. Davies (Davies* Bros.), and responded to humourously by Mr D. A. Morgan, butcher, "District Council," proposed by Mr W. A. Morgan, and responded to gracefully by Mr T. BevaH. D.C. A toast to "The. Host and Hostess" was proposed by the chairman, and was responded to by Mr R. Bevan in a most hemely manner. Old Dewi Sant, of course, was referred to during the meeting, and the toast to the ancient festival was passed with acclamation. All the happy company left after a very enjoyable evening. The host and hostess are worthy of commendation for tlieir kind reception of the party. On Thursday afternoon the Nonconformist Ministerial meeting met at the residence of tit. Rev R. Thomas, and under the host's pre- sidency, when a debate took place on the sub- ject: "Whieh is the ultimate authority in re ligion: The Bible or the Church?" The Rev W. R. Jdnes (ii.), took the side of the Bible, whilst Rev W. L. Powell (C.M.), took the church. A most edifyiing discussion was heard, and it was evident that the meeting was in favour of the Bible. The two gentle- mer handle] the subject most ably. After thv meeting a cup of tea was enjoyed, Mr S. Thomas presiding. A most hearty vote of I thanks v-as accorded to the host, and hostess for their kind reception of the fraternity. The next meeting will be held at the residence of the Rev T.
