Penrhiwceiber Notes. BY "SPHINX." The light-fingered gentry are continu- ing their patronage of Ceiber. Some of our local boot stores have missed pairs of boots which were hanging outside their windows. There is something in the old proverb, "An open door tempts a saint." I notice from the report of the Moun- tain Ash Police Court last week that' the police are exercising vigilance and activity in bringing stone-throwers to judgment. May I just remind our staff that there is a. lot of stone-throwing at Ceiber to. Complaints come from Church Street and Ceiber Road. A word to the wise, etc. I understand that the Campers have fled from their tents, seeking a more gen- ial clime or at any rate a solid brick and slate protection from the blasts of a wintry August. Are thev coming back? is the query of several of the mountain climbers. The Salvation Army has had a week of hard work here. Each night (i-aiij- or ahine) they are to be seen preaching to a mass of listeners. During one of their corner meetings a crowd of little chil- dren, ranging from 3 to 5 years of age, and who were seated on the window sills of an adjacent public-house, kept repeat- ing the orations and imitating the ora- torical style of the Salvationists. Ceiber has its embryonic Booths without a doubt. The storm of Sunday night kept some weary Ceiberites from their slumbers. No great damage was experienced, but we understand that some cellars in the Woodfield Houses were flooded, much to the discomfort of the tenants. The new- ly renovated roads also suffered badly.

Lewis Jenkins, pastor of Trinity, who officiated at the service, remarked that Undoubtedly the lad possessed a special gift from God, and he hoped he would Ill,e it in the service of God. Master Clif- ford, although very young, has already made his mark as a violinist, and there is, no doubt, a bright musical career be- fore him. SINS OF A CITY."

Lloyd, Mr. Vicary, Mr. Blias, and others had spoken on the subject, it was decided to send for a. num- ber of books issued by the society. A special committee was appointed to deal with the matter. A vote of thanks was accorded to Mr. Phelps for his address. The C.E.M.S. question has been brought before the class on several occasions. It is hoped that the matter will now be taken up in earnest and a branch formed in Aberdare. TRINITY.—■" Perfect in Christ Jesus" (Col. i., 281 was the. phrase which the Rev. J. Lewis Jenkins had adopted as his text on Sunday morning, the theme of his sermon being Christian Charac- ter." The Christian character, said Mr. Jenkins, included (1) holiness. A man might possess many isolated qualities of a good kind. But only to the degree that he was holy could he be Christian. Holi- ness was not the asceticism which in- duced man to plunge into solitude in order to extract the devil from his soul. Neither was holiness the bandying about of pious platitudes and religious phrases. Holiness meant the separation of man from sin. Holiness was purity in the innermost recesses of the soul. If we ap- plied that standard to church member- ship 20 or 30 per cent, would have to be struck off the rolls of the churches at once. Again, the Christian character consisted of humility. In the pagan world prior to Christ humility was not recognised, and self-assertion was re- garded as a virtue. Humility was a grace revealed by Christ. It was the least popular virtue, and the most rare. Half the strife existing in the churches was caused by individuals who desired the front place. Another attribute of the Christian character was the forgiving spirit. Many people offered the prayer, And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive others," but they never knew what it was to forgive. Another element in the Christian character was love—an affection for all creatures of every caste and kind.

In addition to those already mentioned, there were present: Mr. and Mrs. John Harris, Mr. and Mrs. T. James, Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Jones, Misses May Williams, Claudia Williams, Emily Williams, and Martha J. James, Masters Willie and Dd. J. James, David Davies, Misses Verona Jones, Letitia Lloyd, A. M.

A SEKMON.—On Sunday evening last the Rev. R. E. Williams (Twrfab) preached a powerful sermon from the pulpit of Ynyslwyd Baptist Church, based upon the text, H She remembereth not her last end," Lamentations i., 9. In the course of his remarks upon the disregard by men of their own destiny, he said that there were several contri- butory causes responsible for such a state of mind. In asking his hearers not to be unmindful of their last end," he did not wish them to regard life as a sour and unhappy state of existence. God had intended life to be sweet and joyous, and there was something wrong with the person who did not believe that life was worth living. He was afraid that the increase in the number of sui- cides in the present age was due to dis- belief in God, the materialistic tendencies of the times, and the general disregard of the hereafter. The desire for long life was natural in man, but that was no reason for merging all our thoughts and interests in the affairs of our present life. Provision for the future in this world was commendable, but the rush for the present life and the things of this world which was such a feature of the times was detestable. He exhorted all to pre- pare for death, not by soliloquising over it, and lamenting the certainty of its coming, but by cultivating a frame of mind which would prepare us to loosen the ties of earth in a gentle and contented spirit. To be able to say farewell to our earthly friends with contentment would be easing our passage into eternity, and not only would death be deprived of its sting, but to those who had lived accord- ing to Christian principles their dying day would truly become a day of coron- ation.

We have been requested to insert the following WARNING for the protection of the Public: The public are hereby warned against ignorant men calling at people's houses, falsely representing themselves to be Dentists, or Agents for Dentists, and offering to extract Teeth to obtain orders for False Teeth. Such men have had no Dental Training; in almost all cases they are quite ignorant of Dentistry, and without any fixed address, so that people they injure cannot trace them. In addition to this, extortionate charges are made for rough, common False Teeth. On no account should the Public have anything to do with them, many persons having been cruelly treated and defrauded. People allowing strangers to interfere with their teeth expose themselves to MANY DANGERS. Blood-Poisoning, Hemorrhage, Disease and life-long Disfigurement often result from the dirty instruments and f ignorance of travelling teeth quacks. For their own safety, the Public are strongly advised not to allow anyone, except established Dental practitioners, to interfere with their teeth, and only to patronise respectable practitioners known to them. Persons requiring any dental operation should have nothing to do with men who canvass or those employing them. PRINTING! PRINTING Every description of Work neatly and promptly executed. PRICES MODERATE. leader' Office Market Street, Aberdare.
