Mid-Rhondda Musings. A correspondent inquires what is meant by "Cars stop here if required," and asks whether passengers are supposed to go on to the next stopping place after having asked to be put down near these notices. Our correspondent goes on to say that a certain conductor was so annoyed at the action of a passenger ringing the bell after he had refused to do so, that he told her to go home and hang herself. Only last week," continues our corres- pondent, passengers of a certain car were kept waiting fully ten minutes while the conductor and driver entertained two young ladies who stood in front of the car." ♦ "1 Watch this window says a legend in Dunraven Street. We did, and were watched in turn by the police. Eisteddfod stories are beginning to reach this office. We are told of a, certain fruiterer whose" Knighting" process in Westminster Hall (by the aid of a, stick instead of a, sword) was unceremoniously stopped by the appearance of one of the officials.

"The Way of the World" is at the "Royal" this week. Is this another "Road to Ruin"? We have been asked why the day "breaks" whilst the night "falls." We have forwarded the conundrum to the promoters of the Daylight Saving Bill.
Pentre Pellets. We are rather surprised at the incon- sistent action of a big Gunn" who resides in this locality. Whilst proudly boasting of his patriotism, he has actually engaged an orchestra, leader whom he knows to be of French origin. Congratulations to the stage manager of the Tivoli upon his repeated artistic displays. Though but a New-man" locally, his brilliant scenic effects prove that he is no Green hand at his pro- fession. A turn which elicited "warm" praise at the benefit concert on Friday was the "Code" exhibition of smart jugglery performed by local artistes. With such talent at their command, they should cease scraping" for a living and cut a dash. One of our eisteddfodic brethren must have had a bard" attack of vertigo whilst up Town, for we are informed that he unceremoniously vacated his seat upon the wiggle-woggle. A-gent of such renown should be brought to "book."

Truth dies hard, and W. E." have our sus- picions. Though small in stature, it seems to be the sole ambition of a Pentre trades- man to get "high up" in the world, for he was recently noticed painting the parapet of a neighbouring; building. Great "Scott"! what nerve lie has. The police turned up in good force on Wednesday for their annual outing.

A student friend of ours is a "Don" hand at cricket. During, a recent match he "scored" well, acting, as umpire and compiler with the" Grace" and fortitude of a veteran, whilst his conduct was Blythe" and gay. The general exodus of curates from our parish leads us to wonder as to who will "minister" unto our needs, now that the dearth is so marked. It may be that Dis- establishment would "cure-it." -+-- Three local young ladies who visited the Co-operative Social at Porth on Thurs day, were observed to be seated at the tea tables for nearly an hour. We are afraid that their enjoyment did not prove much of a Cop to the promoters.

We trust that he had a plea- sant voyage, for most people who cross the ocean for the first time usually find it a, "swell" affair:, and consequently- readers know the rest. --+- It was understood by local folk that the Treherbert Northern Union Grounds would be engaged all through the summer with sports, races, &c. The summer has come long ago, but where are the "sports "P It seems that a few fowls" are the only objects that are allowed to benefit from the green sward in the summer. Local cricketers would be delighted to have their ducks as well. But there, the sports have interfered. The Treherbert Athletic Cricket Club have kept a very creditable record this season. They have, only once been defeated (by Peiiygraig United), and they are undefeated at home. We hope to be able to record this, again at the end of the season. When the pantry door is left unlocked the small boy of the house seems to get his "desserts."

Porth Jottings. The; Rev. J. H. Bebb, A.T.S., of Castle- ton, Monmouthshire, has accepted a un- animous call to the pastorate, of Taber- nacle (E.B.) Chapel, Porth. The rev. gentleman will commence his ministry at Porth in September. Asked why he was in favour of I "Women' Suffrage," a, local orator re- plied: "Because the hand that nursed the cradle, rocked the deep." Endeavour- ing to recover himself, he said I mean, the hand that rocks the cradle nurses the deep." A troupe of Baden-Powell Scouts has been inaugurated at the Y.M.CLA. It would be interesting; to see this young troupe on parade at the forthcoming pro* cession incconllection with the Royal ij-lit in July, and also on Carnival day. The secretary of the Y.M.C.A., aft-r numerous applications, has commenced a lodging register for Porth. Those who have rooms and those who require apart- ments are asked to communicate with the secretary. » At the present rate of increase the Y.M.C.A. rooms will have to be ex- tended, or they will have to go in for a new building. They have, now definitely decided upon a, course of three lectures for the coming season—one in October, December, and February.
Tylorstown Topics. We are pleased to record the success of Miss Edith Thomas, Bristol House, and Mr. P. J. Hughes, Deri Terrace, at the Preliminary Certificate Examination. Mr. F. E. W. Hughes, churchwarden of St. Mary Magdalen, has been appoin- ted lay representative of Tylorstow parish at the forthcoming Diocesan Con- I ference. The Rev. Rowland Hughes, B.D.. delivered a most eloquent and inspiring sermon on Sunday at Ebenezer (W.C.) Chapel, taking as his theme Forgive- ness." We are pleased to see Mr. and Mrs. R. E. Michael, Limerick, Ireland, paying a visit to the dear homeland.

Pentre. Major R. C. Dyke, Y.O., Pentre, has received the necessary permission for the South Wales Territorial Army Service Corps, Rhondda, to carry out the tran- sport work at Ammanford Camp during July. The Major's company will com- prise 120 men, together with 28 horses and 6 wagons. Writing upon Welsh successes at the r London "National," and referring espe- cially to the Rhondda winners, the corres- pondent to th South Wales Weekly Post," Swansea, says:—"Two singers who have won fame at the National Eis- teddfod were introduced to Swansea through the Star Theatre Sunday ser- vices. Mr. Tom Bonnell, the tenor winner, created such a very favourable impression at one of them a, couple of years ago, that he was engaged for an- other concert; and Master Trevor Wat- kins, whose young; soprano voice has been so highly praised, also sang at one of these services: a year ago." f Both performances at the Tivoli on Friday evening were set aside, through 1 the generosity of Messrs. Poole, for the benefit of the St. Peter's Church Lads* Brigade. The members of the Brigade had been very assiduous in selling tickets, so that the building was very full at i both performances, the excellent pro- i gramme provided being a great attrac- ■ tion. There were two additional items, j A section of the Lads' Brigade, consist- } ing of about twenty members, per- formed some excellent evolutions on the stage, under the direction of Captain Newberry, whilst the Minervas made a, capital debut on the music-hall stage. Their feats with the diabqlo were well executed, and other balancing feats had the mark of originality, and were per- formed neatly and skilfully. Their I "looping the loop was a very pretty and novel act, a spinning diabolo pro- ceeding along an inclined wire and then right around a circle. We congratulate the Minervas, who are two youths from Pentre. At the conclusion of the second performance, Major Dyke made a short speech, expressing thanks, on behalf of the Lads' Brigade, to Messrs. Poole-, avid to Mr. Gunn, the able manager of the Tivoli, who* wasi mainly responsible in j procuring such a splendid programme. Mr. W. E. Willis, contractor, Ystrad, • seconded the vote of thanks, "which was accorded in the usual hearty manner. Mr. Gunn briefly responded on behalf of Messrs. Poole and, himself. We are reminded of the successful career of a Pentre young man by a pamphlet which has lust been published as a, reprint from the Magazine of the Cambourna School of Mines. The sub- ject of the pamphlet is The Age of the Earth," and the author -is Mr. David Bowen, F.G.S., M.I.M.E., who is at present a professor at the above college. Mr. Bowen is the son of Mr. John Bowen, Upper Alma, Place. He followed the occupation of coal miner at Cwm- park Colliery, and utilised his evenings for private study in science, as the re- sult of. which he obtained a David Davies Scholarship at Cardiff, valued at £ 50 per annum for four years. -+-- Our locality has recently been en- livened by up-to-date and clever adver- tising. The crowds which congregate in front of a local fruiterers are evidence of big sales, while admirers of a famous butter have been astonished by a fall of price produced (?) by a brick passing through the shop window. This adver- tisement has been exceedingly well de- vised and executed.- About fifteen members of the Rhondda Naturalists, including two ladies, under- took an arduous ramble on Saturday afternoon. The weather during the week had been very wet, with the result that the country travelled was very soft and wet. Visits were paid to the Blaen- rhondda Waterworks, and the extensive reservoir, situated between Maerdy and Aberdare, owned by the Pontypridd Waterworks, and also to Llynfawr. The ramble was conducted by Messrs. W. D. Wight, M.E., and Octavius Thomas, manager of R.U.D.C. Gas and Water Department.
Tonypandy. The forty-third anniversary services in connection with the English Wesleyan Sunday School, Tonypandy, took place on Sunday last, when three excellent ser- vices were given, consisting of special recitations and suitable singing by the scholars and choir. The services were presided over by Mr. Owen Buckley. The choir was led by Mr. Wm. Williams, and Misses Queenie Martin and Mary Gregory accompanied on the piano and organ respectively. On Monday, the school paraded the streets, after which the usual entertainment was held. On Monday next the annual tea and outing will take place, when a journey to Pontyclun will be indulged in. JNEST JONES, Sculptor, Trealaw, has a fine selection of artificial and natural wreaths and wireguards. Headstones and grave requisites. 4723
Ogmore Vale. Special Services.—Special services were held at the English Congregational Chapel on Sunday last. The preacher for the occasion was the Rev. W. Justin Evans, of London. He delivered powerful dis- courses throughout the day to crowded congregations. The singing was supported by the orchestra, under the baton of Mr. Abel Jones. I.L.P.—An open-air meeting under the auspices of the Ogmore Valley f.L.P. was held near the Police Station on Sunday afternoon last. The speaker was Mr. James Edmunds, of Taff's Well. --+-- Sucees.ses.-At the recent examination for the Teacher's Preliminary Certificate, Part II., the following Ogmore Vale students were successful, viz. —Mr. Dd. Williams and Mr. Joshua. Williams, Miss Beatie Goodwin and Miss Hetty Williams. Miss Williams did exceedingly well. obtaining a distinction in History, and will be admitted into Swansea Training College. Mr. Joshua Williams has been accepted at the London Day Training College at Islington. We congratulate the above on their success. Bitten by Rats.—The three young chil- dren of Mr. and Mrs. James Wellington, of Bridge Street, have been badly bitten by rat-s. The children had been put to bed in a room downstairs last Saturday night, and about 11.30 p.m. the mother was attracted by the screams of the chil- dren. After attending to one child, she stinted to another, and saw a large rat leave the bed and disappear beneath the door. One child was badly bitten on the thumb, another on the big toe, and the marks of the teeth were found on the arm of another. Dr. Anderson attended immediately. The affair has caused quite a stir in the neighbourhood. Temperance Meeting.-A temperance meeting was held on the Square, Ogmore Vale, on Sunday night. The meeting was addressed by the Rev. Morris Morgan, of Swansea.

Ystrad. In the earlier part of last week a seri- ous accident befell Mr. Benjamin Thomas, butcher and grocer, 59, Gelli- gaied Road. He was driving a horse and cart, accompanied by his eldest son (John Thomas), and when near the Old Pen Rhys Road collided with a car. Both men were thrown out of the cart, caus- ing serious injuries to the father. The son escaped with slight injuries. The annual preaching services were held at Nebo (W.B.) Chapel on Sunday and Monday last. The following divines officiated: —Rev. W. Ceinfryn Thomas (Dowlais) and Rev. E. Hermas Evans (Cwmbwrla). The edifying and instruc- tive sermons were highly enjoyed by the very large congregations which assembled at each service.
Treherbert. Among those from Tneherbert who sat the second part of the Preliminary Certi- ficate Examination of last March, the following have been successful, namely: Misses M. G. Jones, G. J. Bonner and I Violet Jones, and Messrs. Leyshon Rees Webb, Lewis Garfield Walters, William Heber Evans, and R. Pitman. We heartily congratulate them on their success, whilst at the same time we sympathise greatly with the two unsuccessful young ladies who failed to follow up their advantage j in the second part of the examination, after having been secure in the first part.

Treorchy. Last Thursday. St. Matthew's Church Hall was gay with bunting. Long strings of pennants stretched across the top of the building in brilliant fashion. It was a special entertainment given by the children of the Band of Hope and others, the proceeds of which were devoteu towards the Sunday School annual treat. The Rev. T. Tissington opened the pro- ceedings with an appropriate speech. Mr. Arthur Bailey, assisted by Mr. C. W. Kelly, Mrs. G. Phillips, and the Misses A. Jones and M. Mitchell, conducted the children. The programme was a large ,and appreciable one, giving satisfaction to the big assembly. Part 1 opened by a pianoforte solo, followed by A Song of Hope," by the Band of Hope Choir. Among other renditions were —Recita- tions: "Mr. Nobody," Harold Griffiths: "Little Boy Blue," Ida Ball; "Father is coming," Willie Davies; Mush- rooms," Ida Watts; What little things do," Ernest G. White; Why Cats Wash after Eating," Edith Newman; The Little Dressmaker," Lilian Newman; Time Enough," May Lewis; The Ravens," Phyllis Lloyd; "A Laugh in Church," D. Newman; Song of the Western Men," Walter Henford; We are Seven," Kitty Powell; "The Solitary Reaper," C. Williams; "Persevere," a quintette; Wynken, Blynken, and N.od," A. Hurford; action songs: The Gipsies," by a, septette (girls); Sun- shade Drill," "Temperance Bells," and Flag of Gladness," by the Band of Hope children* solo, "Nutting," Willie Davies; duet, "We come 0 God, with gladness," E. Hurford and May Lewis; and a laugh- able sketch, Box and Cox," by W. Bodley, L. Starkey, J. White, and Miss C. Williams. The occasion was a distinct success in every respect, and much credit is due to all who took part. The per-, formance was (by special request) repeated on Saturday evening. Mr. Benjamin Bond, a young married man, residing at Tylacoch Place, em- ployed as a rider at the Abergorchy Col- liery, was the victim to an accident on Wednesday last. Bond was returning with a journey of full coal, and whilst signalling was caught by the passing trams and crushed against the side, causing external and internal injuries. A dance was held on the Taff Grounds on Thursday evening under the auspices of the Cwmparc Silver Band, who have decided upon holding a series of dances throughout the summer. -+- The first public meeting of the move- ment promoted by the four Welsh Con-! gregational Churches of Treorchy and Owmparc, namely, Ramah, Hermon, and Bethania (Treorchy), and Soar (Cwmparc), for the instituting of an English Congre- gational Church in the district, will take place this (Thursday) evening at Bethania, when the Rev. Elvet Lewis, M.A., Lon- don, will deliver a sermon. —I The annual preaching services at Bethlehem (C.M.) were held on Sunday and Monday last, the officiating ministers being the Revs. Howell Harris Hughes, Liverpool, and W. Llewellyn Lloyd, Anglesey. The sermons were of an ex- ceedingly high order, and much religious fervour was witnessed on both days. On Monday afternoon, a telegram reached Mr. Hughes bearing news of his wife's illness, necessitating: his instant return home. We deeply regret to record the sad death of Mrs. Evans, wife of Mr. David Evans, 34, Dumfries Street, which took place on Tuesday last, at the age of 57. Deceased had been in indifferent health since the summer of last year. She was a faithful and respected member of St. Tyfodwg; Church, where her demise is keenly felt.
Cwmparc. The Park Road Building Club held its final meeting at Park Hotel on Tuesday evening last, with Mr. John Higgon in the chair. There was a strong atten- dance of members, the principal business being the submittal of a statement of accounts by the hon. secretary, Mr. Jas. Evans. The auditors appointed to review same (Messrs. Chapman and Davies, Ocean Offices) reported them as eminently satisfactory. Mr. Evans gave a lucid summary of the accounts, and was after- wards awarded a very hearty and unani- mous vote of thanks, proposed arid secon- ded respectively by Mr. Barron and Dr. Barrett. The last-named gentleman, on on behalf of the club, presented Mr. Evans with a handsome roll-top desk. and referred in glowing terms to the efficient and valuable services of the secretary- His clerical work was always above reproach, and he handled the financial aspect of the club in a manner worthy of an embryonic Lloyd George. Several other members of the club also spoke in high praise of Mr. Evans' conscientious services. Mr. Matthew Morgan, again on behalf of the club, presented Mr. John Higgon, the genial treasurer, with a travelling bag. Mr. Higgon's long ex- perience with building clubs had proved invaluable, and much of the success of the club was due to his pilotage. The Cwmparc Tug-of-War Team, under the captaincy of Mr. Percy Pryce, achieved a good performance at Eglwysilan Sports on Saturday last, when they defeated all the crack teams of South Wales and gained possession of a hand- some silver challenge cup. Their most dangerous opponents were Abertillery and Abergorchy, but the former they fairly easily defeated in the first round. They encountered the Treorchy men in the final, and these proved foemen worthy of their steel. The pulling was hard and strenuous, but the superior training of the Park men told its tale. Mr. Pryce's smile, as he carried the trophy home- ward over Eglwysilan mountain, quite illumined the landscape and outvied the glittering glories of the cup itself in brilliancy. The Salem Sunday School examination results are to hand, and the teachers are to be congratulated upon the good show their pupils have made. Propor- tionately more successes have been made than by any other Sunday School in South Wales. Two little girls, Misses B. Davies and M. Thomas, gained full marks, and will probablv be awarded prizes by the Union. As a reward for their display the pupils and teachers are to be entertained to a, social tea by fus. E. Middleton. A successful tea party was held at the- Park Hall on Thursday last in aid of the funds of the Cwmparc Silver Band. Several local ladies rendered valuable assistance at the tables, and some of the bachelor members were in fine form at the" tea making." The new departure of the band in playing dance music on the Taff Field on Thursday evenings is much liked in some quarters, and will probably net some much-desired additions to the exchequer.
Pontygwaith. On Tuesday evening; last, at Soar Vestry, a most educative and interesting lecture was delivered by the Rev. Row- land Hughes. B.D., Tylorstown, ou D. L. Moody." The chair was occupied by the Rev. Joseph Evans. The proceeds will be devoted towards liquidating the chapel debt. The local Methodists are at present holding their meetings in the vestry of their chapel, as the chapel itself has been condemned. A new church is to be built opposite shortly. The Seion Choir, under the conductor- ship of Mr. John Harries, is making great progress towards the performing of the Messiah," which will take place in the autumn.

Tylorstown. A young collier named Harry Webb was. seriously injured through a slip of coal falling upon him at No. 9 Colliery on Tuesday. The unfortunate lad had both legs broken and serious injuries to his back. His condition, we understand, is critical. Mr. Edwin Rees, Bryn Be-dw, was the recipient of a silver-mounted Indian cane walking-stick, with inscriptions, presented to him by members of the Young People's Society, last week as a token of respect. Mr. and Mrs. Rees quite recently cele- brated the anniversary of their golden wedding, having resided in Tylorstown for 33 years, where they are held in high esteem by -the inhabitants of the districts The wall that once existed between Bryn Bedw and Hendrefadog is being speedily restored, thanks to the energetic services of our local Council representa- tive, Councillor D. Smith.
Clydach Vale. We are pleased to note that Mr. Bryn- ley R. Price, Clydach Vale, has been successful in the recent examination held under the auspices of the Glamorgan Education Authority for candidates for the Ruskin Hall, Oxford. Only one scholarship was offered, so that the suc- cess is a. glowing tribute to his persever- ance and ability. Mr. Price has also taken a very active part in local religiou& and social undertakings. During the five years he has been in the neighbourhood,. he has been president of Bethany Tem- perance Society for two years, secretary of Bethany Men's League, and class leader. He takes a, prominent part in the Miners' Federation work, is a member of the Cambrian Central Committee, and- also a, member of the Mid-Rhondda Trades Council. Mr. Price only had an elemen- tary education, and started in the pit at the age of 14, and at the time of his success was employed at the Cambrian. Collieries, Clydach Vale.
