South Wales Women's Temperance…


South Wales Women's Temperance Union. Local Union Meeting at Ton. The Upper Rhondda branches of the South Wales Women's Temperance Union held their quarterly local union meeting on Tuesday, February 23rd, at Jerusalem Chapel, Ton. The conference in the afternoon was presided over! by Mrs. Thomas, Glell View, Pentre, and a, fair number of faithful sisters represented the different branches. The reports of the delegates were encouraging, each one speaking hopefully and bravely of the future of the work. A recitation was given and a paper was read on The Duty of Mothers to look after the Moral Training of their Daughters." It was evident that the responsibility of mother- hood was deeply felt by the sisters pre- sent. The Ton sisters spared no trouble to provide tea for all members who wished to partake, and their kindness was duly appreciated. In the evening, a public meeting was held, under the presidency of the Rev. Ei W. Da vies, Hebron, Ton. The speakers were Mrs. S. M. Saunders, Pencoed, and Dr. William- C'wmavon. The former emphasised the importance of being whole- liearted in the ieause of 'temperance, remarking that a number of persons are drawn to the public arena by a feeling of fellowslJip and a, love of excitement. To do real and lasting good, much quiet .sacrifice was necessary. She was a firm believer that conversion of the heart was the true cure for intemperance. Dr. Williams spoke from the point of view of the Christian medical man, and clearly pointed out the destructive effects of alcohol on the physical and moral nature. Two solos were rendered by local ladies. The meeting passed a, resolution of con- demnation of the House of Lordis for throwing out the Incensing Bill. The secretary of the local Union is the indefatigable Miss Rosina, Phillips, Blaen- rhondda, and Mrs. E1. H. Dayies, Pentre, is the worthy treasurer.
