— Ynysybwl. A very successful Eisteddfod was held at Noddfa Chapel on Wednesday afternoon. The conductor was the Rev Theophilus Jones, who kept the audience in high humour with his humourous remarks. Mr E. Williams (Crib- bin Dy), was the adjudicator of the music, and the Rev W. E. Davies and Mr Henry James (Trelinfab), the adjudicators of the literature. Mr W. Williams (Guardian) hav- ing given the opening song, the competitions commenced, resulting as follows: Alto solo, "Bu genyf fam a thad, Mr David Maddy; Miss M. Hooper won the silver medal in ihe recitation (English); Master William S. Jones securing the second prize, the brothers Jones between them obtained the prize for the Welsh recitation; Master Albert Davies carried off the prize for the best execution of the violin solo; Mr Tom Judd came off best in the com- petition on the tenor solo, "Dacw'r bwthyii gwyn y'm ganwyd;" although only one per- son competed on the essay entitled, "The Elssctntials of Character," the adjudicators, without hesitation, declared him to be well worthy of the prize. In giving his adjudica- tion, Mr Davies highly complimented the writer (who turned out to be Mr Silas Wil- liams) upon the keen intellect and thoughtful mind displayed in the essay. He believed the writer was a Welshman, and if he had written in the vernacular it would have been a readier vehicle for his striking thoughts, and the essay would have been even better than it was. In coming forward for the prize, Mr S. Wil- liams was enthusiastically received. The next competition was for the best impromptu speech, the prize for which was divided between Messrs William Williams and Silas Williams Mr Tom Williams gave the best rendering of the baritone solo, "Pinael Anrhydedd," and Misses M. Hooper and Lizzie Morgan obtained the first and second prize respectively in the "Spelling Bee" competition. The prize offered for the best rendering of the soprano solo was divided between Misses S. A. Jenkins and E. Jcnes. Mr James Lewis' party won the prize in the quartette competition, and Mr Lewis Webb was an easy winner in the first sight sitfging competition. Three choirs entered for the chief choral competition, of which the win- ner was Tabernacle Choir, conducted by Mr James Lewis.
