Maerdy. A dinner was held at the Royal Hotel here on Thursday evening on the occasion of presenting Mrs A. Divies, Pencoed (late land- lady of the above hotel), with a testimonial. About 150 friends assembled, and a most enjoyable evening was spent. Amongst those present were :—Mr Willie Davies, Pencoed Miss Evans, Pencoed Mr Tom Lewis, Dyff ryn Hotel, Ferndalo; Dr Green, Commercial Hotel, Female; Mr J. T. Wheeler, Maerdy Hotel Mr and Mrs Dobson, Cross Keys, Tcnyparpdy Mr and Mrs L. H. Evans, New Inn, Cymmer Dr and Mrs Dukes, Porth Mr W. Edwards, cashier, Mardy; and Mr Robert J. Stevens, Pontypridd. A letter of apology for his inability to attend was received from Dr T. W. Parry, Ferndale. After the tables had been cleared, a capital programme of songs, &c was gone through. Songs were rendered by Messrs Jnc. Griffiths, Ferndale George Peel, Ferndale L. H. Evans (Ap Eos Dar); Mark Spriggs; Win. Bray and W. Tarrant and a recitation was given by Mr Walter Morris. Mr W. Edwards presided, and Messrs G. Lewis, The Schools, and Mr Fehx, Pentre, acted as accompanists. The presentation, which con sisted of a splendid sterling silver tea and coffee service, was made by Mr Wm. Williams, Royal Cottages, Mardy, as one of the oldest inhabitants, and as one of Mrs Davies' best friends. He made a touching, though short speech, which elicited loud cheers. Mrs Davies replied with a few words of thanks which were signalled with a burst of applause that made the rafters shake, followed by the singing in stentorian tones of She's a Jolly Good Fellow from a hundred lusty throats. Mr G. Lewis, The Schools, sang seme excellent pennillion, composed for the occasion by Mr Gwendraeth Williams, Mardy (who, unfortunately, was unable to be present). The pennillion will appear next week. A splendid set of verses were also composed and read by Mr Caleb James, Mardy. Speeches were made by Messrs Rees Owen and John Morgan on behalf of the Rose of Mardy Lodge, expressing the great loss caused to the lodge by the departure of Mrs Davies, and regretting the loss of her active services towards the welfare of the lodge. Mr J. T. Wheeler, Mardy Hotel, entertained the company with a few selections on the Gramophone, and after a vote of thanks was given to the host and hst. ss, Mr and Mrs D. Jones, for their excellent catering, the proceedings were brought to a close by the singing of the Welsh National Anthem.
