Ferndale. Ferndale seems to have forgotten that there has been such) a thing as a strike recently, judging by the manner in which they swarmed tn fhn wild beast show on Monday. It was V'ooI really a sight to see young and old struggling a* if for their lives to go in. It was well worth seeing, though, notwithstanding the great agi- tation which is disturbing the minds of some people, who of late are trying to deprive our young people of some of their amusements. Theatre goers still pursue the "even tenour of their ways," for the Tudor Hall was packed thii week again to hear the splendid entertain- ment given by the celebrated Kentucky Min- strels. Next week again we are to have a treat in the coneert organised by the Fountain Street Welsh Baptist Chapel, in aid of their funds, From what we hear the booking is going on fine, the artistes are of the best, and the object worthy. A very enthusiastic temperance meeting took place on Sunday evening, under the presi dency of Mr T. Samuel, draper, Ferndale, at, the Trerhondda Chapel, at the close of the services at the va' ious places of worship. There were 11 churches which took part and which paraded the principal streets, singing en route. Mr J. Hughes Owen, secretary of the Ferndale Liberal Club, was the organiser of the move- -f, Rpsolutions were adopted at the meet- &&jI- ing (1) protesting against the inconsistency of permitting clubs to open at all times for drink- ing purposes, whilst public-houses were under legal restrictions; (2) urging the repeal of the Act authorising grocers' licenses (3) expressing condemnation of the practice of serving children with intoxicants, and urging parents not to send children to public-houses for liquor (4) dissapproving of the idea of multiplying public- houses in Ferndale; (5) dissapproving of so- called sacred concerts on Sunday evenings, and also of dancing and prize-fighting, as lately exhibited at the Tudor Hall, Ferndale. The speakers to the resolutions were the Revii. G. Penrith Thom-,IRi- Owen, Charles Evans, W. Williams (Pontygwaith), and Messrs M. Coles, Isaac Stevens, John Jones, Timothy Davies, Samuel Roberts, W. D. Evans, E. Rees, and E. Thomas.
