Treorky. The Ainon Welsh Baptist authorities have now definitely decided to build an extension. A commodious and attractive chapel in addi- tion to the vestry now available, will be com- menced. The Ainon Chapel is an offspring of the Noddfa cause, which has been the pioneer of several similar causes of the Baptists in the district, and which movemnts the Rev W. Morris has taken the foremast part. The de- cision to enlarge the Ainon Chapel clearly in- dicates the progress and increase of the Bap- tist denomination in the upper part of Treor- ky. The proposed extension must certainly be gratifying and pleasing.Thd pastor is the Rev J. Syinlog Morgan (formerly of Rhydyfelen, Pontypridd) TSe rev. gentleman is desirous Of iurthenng the cause and promoting its wel- fare, and urges the negotiations for extension. The series of monthly Saturday "ops" star- ted by the Treorky Orchestral Society are be- coming popular, and the second concert held on Saturday last at the Institute proved a most successful one from a musical point of view. Dr J. R. Armstrong, the genial medical officer of the Ocean Collieries, presided. Mr Tim Davies, the conductor, acted in the capacity of adjudicator of the competitive items, Mr Oliver Jones as secretary, Mr W. Rees as treasurer, and Messrs L. Edwards and T. H. Edwards, C.L.C.M., acted as accompanists. The programme was varied, and the proceed- ings very enjoyable. The standard of the sing- ing was very good. The following was the order of the programme: -March, "Atlantic," the Band; song,, Miss Sarah James, Cwmpark; tenor solo, Mr Ben Hopkins; violin solo, Mr D J. Miles; serio-comic, Mr Harry Lewis; baritone solo, Mr James Jones; flute solo com- petition, "Ash Grove," for which two compe- ted; selection, "Gloria" ("Twelfth Mess), the Band; soprano solo, Miss Sarah James; song, Mr Harry Lewis, who was encored; solo, Mr Ben Hopkins; solo, Mr James Jones; bass solo competition, "Gogoniant i Gymru," for which a silver medal, presented by Mr Daniel Edwards (Fuhrer and Co.), Pentre, was awarded as prize; five competed, the prize ultimately going to Mr W. Davies, Treher- bert. Mr W. Jenkins, Cwmpark, gave some selections on the mouth organ. The artistes were one and all in fine form, especially Miss Sarah James, Cwmpark, wlio is developing into a really excellent singer. The Orchestral Society are endeavouring to supply a long felt want by catering for the public with high class singing ax a — r- show their appreciation of such an effort, by heartier support in the future.
