Elizabeth Williams, now of Cwmbach, summoned Roderick Williams, Pont- rhydfendigaid, Card., to .-how cause, etc Mr. W. Thomas appeared for com- plainant, and Mr. J. D. Thomas defend- ed. This case was heard at the Aberdare Court a few weeks previously, and was dismissed owing to lack of corroboration. The girl said she kept company with defendant for a year and 7 months. He lived at Pontrhydfendigaid, and she was in a neighbouring farm Defendant came to the farm one night and threw sand at "the boss's" window in mis- take. Then he rectified his mistake and threw sand at her window. She came downstairs, and they intended spending the evening at the fireside. However. they were ejected from the house, and she was locked out. Consequently they went to a barn. Intimacy took place that night. When she told defendant of her condition he promised that he would "marry her or something." After the last court she had an interview with de- fendant. She questioned him with re- gard to another girl that he had had in trouble, and towards whose child he paid. He said he preferre4 witness to her. Then her aunt came upon the scene and advised defendant to settle the case rather than go before Sir Mar- chant Williams. Stipendiary: Evidently that person knows me. Complainant was cross-examined by Mr. J. D. Thomas with regard to a .slip of paper on which the girl stated that she had written down a certain date. She persisted in saying that it had been written the day after intimacy had taken place. She could not explain how it was July, 1908, and not 1909. Frank Rawlings said he was employed at the farm at which Eliz. Williams was employed. One night at midnight he was ordered to eject Roderick Williams from the house. This he managed to do with some difficulty. He saw -,he parties together several times. By Mr. J. D. Thomas: Witness had never courted Eliz. Williams. No cor- respondence had passed between them. Mrs. Sarah Jones, Cwmbach, stated that after the last court Elizabeth Wil- liams interviewed Roderick Williams. Witness spoke to him, and advised him to settle, but he declined, saying he wanted to see "them first. Stipendiary: Who were they. Mrs. Jones: His parents, I believe. Margaret Jones, from Pontrhydfendi- gaid, testified that she saw the parties together. Roderick Williams testified that he had never courted Elizabeth Williams. He had never been at the farm where she was employed. He was never intimate with her. He never saw Frank Rawlings until the previous day. An order of 3s, a week was made.

Death of Dr. Maurice Phillips. HIS ASSOCIATIONS WITH ABERDARE. Dr. Maurice Phillips, the well-known missioner, died at Southport at the age of 72 years. The late doctor, who was a native of Whitland, Carmarthenshire, was in his early days a cabinet maker, and commenced his ministerial career at Siloa Church, Aberdare. He was edu- cated at Bedford College, London, and proceeded to. India as a missionary on the completion of his studies. For 48 years he remained in India, where his name was a household word among those who were engaged in the same work as himself. He returned to Wales only two years ago, and then selected South- port as the place of his well-earned re- tirement. Most of Mr. Phillips' work was itiner- ating work in the districts under his charge, for which he was admirably equipped. He published in 1895 "The Teaching of the Vedas," and he had a wide reputation a-) a scholar. In 1900 he gained the decree of Ph.D. from the University of Basle. Dr. Phillips preached his first sermon at Cana, Penywain, which was then a branch of Siloa. His brother was the late Mr. B. H. Phillips, of Aberdare, inventor of the chiffoniere organ, who was the father of Mr. J. Arkite Phillips and Miss Jennie Phillips, B.A. Another brother was the Rev, J. L. Phillips, at one time secretary of the Congregational Union, and pastor of Bedford Chapel, London. Dr. Phillips was the oldest missionary under the London Missionary Society. A few months ago he visited Siloa Chapel, when a resolution in appreci- ation of his unique missionary labour was passed, all the congregation upstand- ing as a mark of reverence towards the veteran missionary.
Testimonial, 24, Mount Pleasant Terrace, Mislcin, April 27, 1910 Dear Sir,— The Pianoforte you supplied me with nearly Two Years ago has given me entire satisfaction. The quality, richness of tone, and finish of the instrument is everything that can be desired. Many of my friends have admired it, and I have no hesitation in recommend- ing it to anyone who wants a good, thorough, reliable instrument. Yours truly, ALBERT LOCKE. To Mr. V. Freed, House Furnisher, Mountain Ash.
■MM——— Wales and Music. | BY SEMI-BREVE." ——— It is pleasing to note the reception given to the fair singers of "Gwlad y Gan" when abroad. I refer to the welcome given to Madame Novello Davies' Choir at Cape Colony. Another of our Ladies' Choirs will be leaving the shores of Gwalia during this month. They go for a tour in America. Madame Hughes-Thomas is well-known in the musical world, and I hope that our Aiiieric&tt cousins will give the Welsh ladies a right royal I Welcome. Giyndwr and his famous choir have gone to Yankee-land to delight their fellow- country-men with a well-stocked re- pertoire of music. I am sure that it will be a pleasure for Uncle Sam's sons and daughters to hear the melodious singing of the Glyndwrites from the hills of Wales. I note that Abergavenny is making an application for 1913 National Eisteddfod. It is 13 years since a National gathering was held in Gwent Major Gen. Sir Ivor Herbert M.P., who is taking a keen interest in the move, is to be at the head of deputation. Could we not arouse a little enthusiasm in Sweet 'Berdarto try to get the National Eisteddfod at this town? Surely with the aid of the Cymrodorion and Y Ddraig Goch the Celtic spirit among Aberdarians could be stirred so as to give an invitation to the gathering. Regarding the National Festival of the 9 Celts-I do not refer now to the musical part-there is a deal of strife between the old and new (not theology this time) bards, It is to be hoped that it will not be, detrimental to the gathering at Colwyn Bay. By next year's festival the bards may be able to effect a com- promise, "A oes hedd wch 1 I have been informed that the Rev T. Eli Evans, the pastor-elect Soar Church, Aberdare, is a musician of no mean repute. He has acted as a conductor at several musical festivals. May the union prove a success.
The Doan Investigation. Evidence from Robertstown. f Our investigations into the cures o kidney and bladder troubles by Doan's backache kidney pills reported in the Aberdare press some years ago, are continued to-day, and it is gratifying to find the same hearty spirit continues to prevail, Those who told of their cures years ago stand by them to-day. Mrs E. Preddy, of 27, Thomas Street, Robertstown, near Aberdare, says:— "After my last confinement I suffered for two years with my kidneys; I was a misery to myself, feeling quite run down and unable to do anything. I had sharp, stabbing pains, which really made me tremble, and my legs, arms and face swelled to an enormous size-I could hardly get about. In the mornings I noticed a puffiness under my eyes, and I used to come over dreadfully giddy, sometimes being obliged to lie down to save myself from falling. I also suffered with sick headaches, and was only just able to drag myself about the house. I was unable to do any work that meant bending or stooping. "I tried different remedies, but grew worse instead of better. Then I read of Doan's backache kidney pills, and bought a box of them to see whether they would do me good. I obtained such splendid relief from the first box of the pills that I persevered with them. When I had taken three boxes I was completely cured. I am grateful for my cure, and shall always speak well of Doan's pills. (Signed) (Mrs) E. Preddy." Four years after her cure, Mrs Preddy said:—" I hav.e kept free from the old complaints dating the past four years. I used Doan's pills at a critical time, and they cured me-what is more I stayed cured." Doan's backache kidney pills are two shillings and ninepence per box, or six boxes for thirteen shillings and nine- pence. Of all chemists and stores, or post free direct from the Foster- McClellan Co., 8, Wells street, Oxford street, London, W. Be sure you get the same kind of pills as Mrs Preddy had.
Aberaman Collier Killed. Run over by Brake. Mr R, J. Rhys held an inquest at Aberaman on Tuesday on Wm. Thomas, a collier. Walter Morgan, a lad, said that about 11.45 p.m. on Saturday he saw the deceased knocked down by a brake in Cardiff-road. Frederick Fone, the brake driver, said he was driving his brake from Aberdare to Aberaman. He saw deceased stepping off the pavement. It was very dark at the time, and he did not notice that deceased had been knocked down, other- wise he would have pulled up. The jury returned a verdict of "Accidental Death," and exonerated the driver from blame.

Foreign Missions. MEETING AT ABERDARE. On Sunday morning the Angola Portu- guese South-West Africa Mission was represented at Carmel English Baptist Church by Mr. D. Fisher and a native boy convert named Stephen. The Rev. A. B. Kinsey, B.A., B.D., led the meet- ing, and introduced Mr. Fisher, who gave a stirring address on the inception and work of the Mission. In the afternoon Trinity Sunday School kindly relinquished their service to give the founder and director, Mr. M. Z. Stober, and Paulo, a native boy, an opportunity to address them. The Mission Field is more than five times the size of England, and contains some 19 millions of people, of whom 50,000 are slaves. The Mission is unde- nominational, and consists of. Baptists, Calvinistic Methodists, Church of Eng- land adherents, Presbyterians, etc. It was founded in 1898, and has Five Sta- tions, with 17 British and 2 Portuguese workers of both sexes, who work inland, touching hundreds of native towns. Mr and Mrs. Fisher are home secretaries at Manchester, where they have a centre for preparatory work.
Angola Mission. SPECIAL SERVICE AT ABERDARE. On Sunday evening the usual service at Siloa Cong. Church, Aberdare, was converted into a missionary meeting, over which the pastor, the Rev. D. Silyn Evans, presided. Mr. Evans gave a brief address, in which he touched upon the missionary zeal and energy displayed by Wales in general and Siloa Church in particular. Siloa had given the mission world such stalwarts as the Rev. T. Row- lands, of Madagascar, and Dr. Maurice Phillips, the renowned scholar, traveller and missionary, who had just passed away. On one occasion Siloa Church had the distinction of making the best collection in Wales towards the London Missionary Society. Thereupon Mr. M. Z. Stober, founder and director of the Evangelical Mission in Angola, South West Africa, gave an address, in the course of which he dwelt .on the prevalence of slavery in Angola, and the efforts made by himself and co- missionaries to suppress it. Mr. Stober 'then introduced to the con- gregation two native Angola boys, black as ebony. They are named Paulo and Stephen. Both gave addresses in their native tongue, Mr. Stober acting as in- terpreter. Mr. D. Fisher, of Manchester, who has also spent many years in Angola, and who is the general secretary of the Mission, spoke briefly. The missionaries testified to the excel- lent work performed in the mission field by the Rev. Evan Lewis Evans, of Carmarthen, now of Cabinda, Angola. Mr. Evans went out as a missionary to this far-off country a few years ago, and is rendering yeoman service among the Angolians in secular as well as spiritual spheres. He is a brother to Mr. W. T. Evans, Carmarthen Dairy, Aberdare, who is the secretary for Aberdare of tb* Angola Missionary Prayer Circle. A very appreciable feature of Sunday night's service was the rendering of 8i solo, "Into thy hands," by Miss Gwen. nie Evans, Burry Port, niece of Mr. 0. Evans, London Warehouse, Aberdare. This young lady, who is only 14 years of age, besides possessing a most melodious voice, is a very intelligent and expressive singer, and we predict for her a future in the musical world. Mr. J. J. Williams, L.L.C.M., and Adv. R.A.M. and R.C.M., very ably presided at the organ throughout the service.

WHAT THE PARK INSPECTOR SAW. I A TEARFUL DEFENDANT. Isaac Harris, Glan-road, Gadlys, was charged with exposing himself and with indecently assaulting Annie Thomas (8) and Ceinwen Thomas (10), both of Mill- street. Mr. W. D. Phillips (Messrs T. Phillips and Son) prosecuted, and Mr W. Thomas defended. The charge of exposing was first dealt with. T. Williams, park inspector, said that he saw defendant and the two girls going towards the rockery in the Aberdare Park. Then he saw the three sitting on a bench, defendant with his arms around the girls' waists. Witness saw the man getting up and exposing himself to the children. He went back to the seat, and thereupon witness went on to the man and arrested him. The little girls then told witness how defendant had previously behaved indecently towards them. Witness admitted the offence, and said he would not do such a thing again. Mr. W. Thomas cross-examined the Inspector severely. Sergt. Pulman, Trecynon, gave evi- j dence of arresting prisoner. Witness charged him with the offence in question and he said, "I have nothing to say. Make it as light as you can. It is my first offence. I am guilty." Defendant, placed in the witness box, denied having acted improperly. < Defendant was ordered to pay = £ 15 or go to prison for 2 months. The charge of indecent assault was not proceeded with. Defendant wept like a child when sen- tence was pronounced, and asked in piteous tones if he would be given time to pay. The Stipendiary remarked that the police would probably meet him regard- ing that matter. He (the Stipendiary) was determined to deal severely with such conduct at the Public Park, and in such cases in the future the culprits would not get the option of a fine.
