Treherbert. A very interesting meeting was held at the vestry of Libanus (W.B.) Chapel on Monday of last week, when the late organist, Mrs. Thomas (nee Miss Maggie Cule), was presented with a handsome marble clock, which was subscribed for by the members of the above church on the occasion of her marriage to Mr. John Bartle Thomas, of Tonypandy. The Rev. H. Harris, D.D. (pastor); presided, and the proceedings were enlivened by solos rendered by Messrs. T. J. Samuel, Geo. Evans, D. H. Thomas, Phillip Owen, J. Bartle Thomas, and Miss M. A. Haddock. Some very humorous and appropriate recitations yere also given by Misses Maggie Walters, Nellie Evans, and Messrs. Thomas Jones and Livingstone Perkins. Mr. Henry Evans (the oldest deacon) pre- sented the gift in an appropriate speech. Messrs. William Jones and David Johnson (deacons) and Meesrg. William Jenkins and John Isaac Evans also gave short congratulatory speeches. Suitable replies were made with much feeling by both Mr. and Mrs. Thomas, the latter statillg that of all the presents they had received, ji this one would be the most highly trea- sured. The secretarial duties were ably discharged by Mr. Bassett Evans, and surthhiei stanzas; ijor the occasion we read by Mr. Thomas Snook. The vestry was crowded, and a most successful gathering was brought to a close by the singing of "Hen Wlad fy Nhadau/' The re-opening services of Libanus Chapel (which has recently been enlarged at a cost of £ 2,500) commenced on Sun- day last. The contractor was Mr. Alban Richards, Pent-re, who has carried out the work to the entire satisfaction of the architect, Mr. R. S. Griffiths, J.P., T'ony- pandy. The services will last practically a fortnight, the first sermon being delivered last Sunday morning by the Rev. H. Hai ris, D.D., followed in the after- noon by the Revs. E. Edmunds, Swansea, and J. Nicholas, Tonypandy. During the fortnight, the cream of the Welsh Baptists will occupy the pulpit. Libanus is now one of the prettiest and most compact edifices in the Valley. Among others who will take part in the services are the following:—Revs. G. Matthews,, Blaen- rhondda; D. Collier, Abertillery, J. Williams, Cardigan; W. P. Williams, D.D., Glandwr (editor of "Seren Cymru"); D. 0. Jones, Penygraig; E. Thomas, Pencoed; E. T. Jones, Llanelly; T. T. Jones, Blaenclydach; D. Morris, Blaeny- cwm; J.

Edwards, B.A., D.D., Cardiff (Principal of Cardiff Baptist College). A musically illustrated story, entitled Only a Gipsy," was performed at the St. Mary's Schoolroom oil Thursday by the St. Mary's Children's Choir. The Rev. J. D. Evans (vicar) officiated as chairman. The conductress, Miss Annie Clark, deserves praise for the successful manner in which, she has trained her young choir. Miss Florrie Lewis (pianist) acquitted herself well at the pianoforte. Amongst those taking; special parts were —Misses M. J. Sheppard, S. A. Morgan, E. Clark, G. Lewis, E. Williams, G. Jones, and A. Clark, Master Oliver Lewis, and Messrs. Oats, Harding, and Daniels. Mr. J, C. Evans (jeweller) was reader. The following miscellaneous programme was also gone through: —Pianoforte solo, Dreams of Heaven," Miss Florrie Lewis; solo, Good Company, Mr. Gwiiym; duet, Little Mary," Misses A. L. and B. Thomas; violin solo, "Scotch Airs," Miss Emmie Murray; solo, Flee as a Bird," Miss S. A. Morgan; solo, Stand up for Jesus," Master Oliver Lewis and a trio by Messrs. Daniels and Harding and Miss Clark. The half-yearly meetings of Saron (Welsh Wesleyan) were held on Sunday and Monday last, when inspiring sermons were delivered by the following; ministers: —Revs. Evan Is era c, Machynlleth; W. J. Arter, Tirydail; and Morris Morgan, Swansea. We have heard that there is a move- ment on foot, promoted by the Treherbert Northern Union Committee, to form an Association football club in the locality for next season to play on the Treherbert Football Grounds every other Saturday with the Northern Union team. It is evident that Soccer has commanded much interest from Treherbert "sports" of late, and quite a number of enthusiasts travelled to Tonypandy last Saturday to see the final between Ton and Merthyr. We feel assured that if a good Soccer team were raised for next year, it would not lack support, being that football interest has, for some reason or other, veered round to this code. On the Treherbert Football Field on Saturday, a large crowd of spectators witnessed the 120 yards foot race between Tom White, Blaenrhondda. and George Lloyd, Treherbert, for stakes of £10 a-side. White led off the mark by about 3 yards, but Lloyd ran well and passed him at half-way. Nearing the tape, Lloyd again fell to the rear, and the race seemed lost and won. It was not too late, how- ever, and Lloyd made another brilliant effort, by which he breasted the tape first and won by inches. Lloyd was the better runner, but he almost allowed the race to slip from his grasp. We congratulate Messrs. Tom and Jas. Culverhouse (brothers) on their success at the Merthyr wrestling tournament for the championship of Wales. Tom (bantam weight) was matched in the last bout with Charles Evans, of Cardiff Y.M.C.A., while his brother Jim (featherweight) was runner-up with Will Jones, Pentre. Both lads have brought the championship cups to Treherbert, and we have now a trio of championship cups in the locality—one having formerly been won by Sam Howells in a boxing contest at Oldham.
