Football. BY MUDDIED OAF." THE TRECYNON WINDSORS F.C. I must appeal to the sporting element at Trecynon to save the above club from becoming disbanded altogether. For years we have had a clever team in this district, and during the past two seasons the club has proved itself the finest com- bination in the valley. At the request of numerous persons directly connected with it I appeal to some of our local sportsmen to convene a meeting to decide matters at once. Why do they not try to secure the Bridgend Field near Har- riet Street? I must say that our District Council did not act in a sportsmanlike manner towards the Windsors when they applied,
Proposed Benefit Concerts.* FOR INDIGENT WORKERS. A meeting of workmen was held at the Workmen's Institute, Mountain Ash, on Monday evening, Mr. Ivor Langford pre- siding. A notice of motion by Mr. John I-effreys was discussed at great length. It was to the effect that Pictor- ial Benefit Concerts be regularly organ- ised for workmen who were in poor cir- cumstances. The Institute Committee own a Bioscope machine, and it is pro- posed to make use of this. On the proposition of Mr Joseph Jones, seconded by Mr. Wm. Painter, and sup- ported by Mr. John Jeffreys, it was una- nimously resolved to run 12 shows a year for the benefit, of workmen who needed financial assistance. The committee was strengthened by the inclusion of four committee-men from Deep Duffryn, four from Navigation, 4 from Cwmcynon, 2 from Glyngwyn, and 4 from amongst the surface workers. Councillor J. Powell was elected hon. secretary, and Mr. J. Morris hon. treasurer.'
Cwmaman, SEION (B.).-The pulpit at the above church was occupied on Sunday last by Mr. J. W. Hughes, student at Bangor Training College. He took as his text in the morning, "Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see God," Matt. 5. In the evening he preached from Isaiah vi., 1, "In the year that King Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne." Large congregations zD attended. I.L.P.—A lecture was given here under the auspices of the above party on Tues- day evening last. Councillor Owen Powell presided- The lecturer was Mr. John Prowle, member of the Merthvr Board of Guardians. The subject was, "Diseases and their causes." Mr. Prowle in his remarks said that perhaps his audience thought it strange that such a subject should be related to Socialistic principles. But nevertheless it was found to be true. Diseases were con- tracted quicker by the poorer classes than by the rich. This was owing to the fact that the former class worked in badly ventilated mines, workshops, etc., while the latter always had plenty of pure air. He further explained that Socialism would do away with these defects in the conditions of workers, and result in a healthier race of people being produced. The chairman and speaker were accord- ed a hearty vote of thanks.

Mems from the Mount. If one swallow doesn't make a, sum- mer—does one punch constitute a fight? Ask the Miskin Athletic Club members. One house in Jeffrey-street will remem- ber this summer, especially Sunday night's little bit of a stir up. The Hon.

The Vol. Institute Band has started practising the test piece for next Easter Eisteddfod. Wait till the boss comes home. Great anxiety about the stewardship pro. tern. The last two years has seen many alter- ations in Oxford-street. More on now and more to come. The poor dear dirty old Cynon is being straightened in parts. A straight tip evi- dently. Who was the officer that set the ex- ample at Lovesgrove Camp with the hand- ful of( sausage and bread? A mysterious handful surely. Who will be the new incumbent of St. John the Baptist Church in the new parish of Miskin? No need to go very far to seek for one. A bit of a scratch band to start the dancing.
