Did You Hear!







Letterston Notes.


Letterston Notes. Singing is such a ticklish subject that we were quite nervous about passing any com- ment on the rehearsal at Saron, hence the absence of anything under the above heading about it. It was nice to see the Welsh para- graph, and we can do nothing better than confirm the sentiments therein, and to confi- dently look forward to a musical treat on August 12th, the day on which Mr Emlyn Davies will again conduct the combined choirs of Saron, Newton, Beulah and Pun- cheston. While on the religious ground-for singing is essentially a part of religion we hear the little church at Horeb (Congregational) had been appointing new deacons. The voting was by ballot, the booth being the particular home or pew of the voter. Quite a mild excitement prevailed to hear the result, anti to prevent any unwarrantable election fire' a hymn was sung with as much zest and zeal as at the recent revival. The three appointed were Messrs Lloyd, Griffiths, and the Secretary of the Church. Ouite a fine story reaches us from a station, about the size of ours, up the line, the only excuse for putting it under this heading, is that the Stationmaster is a native of Letter- stoh somewhere. It appears that a passenger, arriving rather late, was overcome by the heat the day previous, or the day after, and the railway people, with their characteristic geniality and hospitality common to Great Western Railway servants, thoughtfully gave him a night's rest in the—it is said—'ladies waiting room,' with its various comforts, padded seats, etc. The passenger, like the virgins of old, fell into a sleep, but about midnight suddenly woke up, and began look- Z, ing about bewildered, the stroke having pass- ed presumably. Relizing at last whcie he was, his keen eye caught, what does duty for the fire alarm, this he began to ring so vigor- ously, that the whole street, and Station Row, were alarmed, and started out into the street, now crowcfed, with only night garments on. We can judge the chargin of the Row at finding not ilames, but quite a torrent of fiery words from behind the glass door at the station. Some considerable time again elapsed before the passenger was liberated, not at all grateful for the considerations shown him and vowing vengence on all. It is hoped that Weary Willies' will not find out where our hospitable station staff reside, and shall only divulge the secret to the President of the Navvies Union, now as M.P., under the great- est protests of secrecy. The measles epidemic is still raging—most z;1 1 b of the children in the village and surround- ings have either been attacked or are now down with it. Many adults, it is said, are falling victims, which, at this time of the year, is to say the least, 'delightfully incon- venient, as the hay harvest is in full swing. We can only hope that with the advent of finer weather—so long in coming-it will dis- pel the result of an arctic summer.
