Mid-Rhondda Musings. P.S. George, Gilfach Goch, surely deserves acknowledgment for the clever manner in which he unearthed the missing fowl. Evidently, he is not chicken-hearted, though he may have a predilection for the .roasted rooster. A new significance is now attached to the letters "M.P." following the name of Mabon—" Maker of Peace." We were assured the other day by a policeman that things were very quiet at Tonypandy. Would-be offenders, no doubt, fear to find themselves in a Hole." --+- Mr. Leonard Llewelyn is known to be a bit of a. racer in his car. Even the Combine failed to Scotch him. --+- Primitive Methodist and Wesleyan preachers ought to be men of good pro portions. They are generally found on a "plan." It is passing strange that the gentlemen who were concerned with the settling of affairs consequent upon the coming into operation of the Eight Hours Act took two days of twelve hours each to dis- charge their onerous task. We are told that Mabon's admirers wished to shoulder him on Wednesday evening after the settlement. His safe negotiation would be a weighty problem, we think* In the report of a local. wedding we read The bndgø was given away by her father." What a load off the poor man s back!
Pentre Pellets. Peiitre folk have "not" vet solved the "knot" mystery of the Arnolds. One wag suggests that the lady artiste must have been a. knotty damsel. We'd rather not express our opinion, or may find ourselves in a knot." A local nicotine worshipper advises our readers to abstain from purchasing the Adam and Eve" brand of cigars lately introduced, for he says that once you've "had 'em you. "heave." He is evidently "Abel" to counsel from experience. We have a. gay old Cove" in busi- ness at Llewellyn Street, judging by his "stock" of beautiful flowers. Having got at the" root" of his profession, he may be depended upon to flourish in the fuchia (future). Out- neighbouring suburb has no cause to mourn over the loss of its Labour J.P. for it can still boast of a business gentleman bearing the mystic letters. His equal cannot be found in the Welsh Market." --+-- It is pleasing to note that the Council officials try to brake down expenses, by hiring' brakes for their of inspection, instead of motor cars. We honestly believe that an occasional drive "breaks" the monotony of office life. Pentre, with all its gloom, still retains one "Ray" of sunshine, which is found In an Ystrad Road Bazaar." One of the fraternity hopes to "Jack" up his profession ere long, and act otherwise for a. livelihood. The rescuers of the mud-buried animal at Maindy on Sunday afternoon are worthy of congratulation. With one terri bul" heave they landed the cowed beast on terra firma, whilst they themselves were bespattered even to their" cah-es" with Maindy mud. x They were discussing the coal crisis on Bridgend Square on Wednesday, when one of the company expressed the hope that things would brush" up, as he Was actually driven "to the wall" in order to earn his daily bread. Yet said he I intend sticking up for my humble calling, and cheerfully accept' the 'bills' which are continually being sent me by tradespeople." What's your job, lad? enquired a sympathetic listener. Billposting," answered the speaker, and walked away. We strongly advise the building sup- porter constantly seen hanging round a local butcher's establishment to take his "hook" ere he "meets" with disaster, for "Nelson," though dead. is still a "liver," and one of the locality's shining lights."

Treherbert Tags. An egg measuring three and a half inches in length, and weight four and a half ounces, was laid by an ordinary hen in the locality last week. Indeed, this is egg-shell-ent When spoken to about his success in trade, a local draper attributed it to his use of headwork. For instance, if a ladyj required some lawn, he never had any difficulty in selling her some hose. A student of natural history attempted to capture a bee on a recent geographical excursion; but the insect objected and administered a stinging reproof. There was more than one b- after this. There is a building in Treherbert of over 200 "storeys." We refer to the Library which was established at Bethany Chapel many months ago, which, by the way, will be in use-wlieii Who was it that tried to hang himself by the feet at Ynysfeio Colliery ? This could not have been a case of neck or nothing." A cricket match had been arranged to be played on Saturday between Bethany Chapel and the Wesleyans. The latter postponed the game, because one man was missing. This "reeks" of funk, we fear! The washerwomen of the locality were shown this week how to do their weekly washing with less labour in less time. No; there is no soap in this par.
Porth Jottings. Thanks to the generosity of Mr. W. J. Thomas, Brynawel, and also to the trades- men of Ynyshir, the Ynvshir Patrol of B.-P. Boy Scouts will now be able to take part in full uniform in the procession during the visit of H.R.H. Princess Louise. We extend our hearty congratulations to Miss Blodwen Lloyd, who was selected, with a few others, to sing before the King on Saturday last upon the occasion of the opening of the Victoria and Albert Museum. Humour with pathos is not very un- common, and during the heat of discus sion upon the eight hours question last week some remarkable things were over- heard. Arbitration is the pii-iiiacle I upon which all our troubles are 'based, ex- claimed one gentleman. Another orator said that the bone of contention was the double shift ques- tion, and that there were 10 out of every 9 persons against it. On Wednesday, the tradespeople of Porth were terror-stricken. It was no German invasion, but somebody's cow was playing truant, and while roaming about had taken quite a fancy to Hannah Street, and was endeavouring to graze upon its "pastures green." The information elicited is to the effect that, after some silent meditation, the animal suddenly bolted at the window of a boot shop. The attraction of affinity, doubtless. Inside was the proprietor sitting on the "horns of a dilemma," taking joli- good care not to get near the horns of the cow," and vowing to drink no more "beef tea," or eat "beef steaks/ or sell boots with cowhide leather in them.
Pontygwaith Pottage. One of the eyesores of Pontygwaith is the ash-tips and the large number of sheep always "grazing 011 it. We have often mused over a bucket of refuse and wondered whether it would be returned to our dinner table ag Welsh mutton. Several persons have been doubting, whether Noah's Ark alighted on Mount Ararat, or on the Pontygwaith Tennis Ground. We wish to inform such persons that the noble edifice on the latter is the Pavilion.

Tylorstown Topics. A gentleman who visited London last week spent many hours watching the Suffragettes. And he survives! We are informed that cat-calls are increasing in the vicinity of Penrhys. The victim whose slumbers are con- tinually disturbed was asked by a friend if he thought they had amalgamated." Well," said he, I don't know much about the amalgam,' but I'm jolly isure that they're ated (hated)." Hendrefadog Street can now be termed the musical paradise." Last Sunday evening, tho following were heard to I advantage at precisely the same moment: —Gramophone, tin whistle, piano, accor- deon, mouth organ, yells, laughter and song. j T'ylorstown Conservatives spent a day I at Swansea on Saturday last, where rain fell throughout the day. Tylorstown Liberals went for an outing [ to Cheltenham on Saturday, where the sun shone gloriously all day. Yes, the Clerk (of the Weather) is to have a j peerage, we hear. ¡ Councillor Burgess, of Bradford, a well- j known I.L.P. speaker, delivered an eloquent address on The Lessons of the » Coal Crisis near the Tylor's Hotel on Wednesday evening. j

Treherbert, A most successful sale of work was held at Libanus (W.B.) Vestry on Thurs- day and Friday last, the proceeds of which were in aid of the Chapel funds. The sale was opened by Miss Davies (Port Talbot). The Rev. H. Harris, D.D. (pastor), in introducing Miss Davies, re- ferred to her parents, grand-parents, and great-grand-parents, as being old inhabi- tants of Treherbert. Miss Davies, in performing the ceremony, said that she was delighted to be amongst old faces again. She recognised them all, and it was with great pleasure that she opened their sale, to which she wished all suc- cess. The building was gaily and pro- fusely decorated, as were also the various stalls, which were arranged in good order. The rather small building was crowded for the most part of both days; and there was no difficulty in disposing of the attractive and very useful articles. The stall-holders Avere: -—Refreshment Stall: Mrs. R. T. Cule, Mrs. Francis, and Miss L. Richards. Flower Stall: Misses M. A. Owen. K. Cule, and May Morgan. Sweet Stall: Mrs. J. Davies, Mrs. Harris, and Misses Johnson and Harris. Fancy Stall: .Mrs. Mainwariiig, Mrs. • W. Davies, and Miss L. Collins. Sewing Class Stall: Mrs. Morgan, Mrs. Williams, and Miss Owen. Drapery Stall: Misses N. Jones, Griffiths, Pro- tberoe, and Williams. Ice Cream Stall Mrs. Dwyer and Mrs. Williams. Bran Tub: Mrs. Pratt. China Stall: Mrs. Davies and Mrs. B. Gabe. Poultry Stall: Mrs. J. Jenkins, Mrs. Thomas, Mrs. Protheroe, Mrs. Nicholas, and Mrs. Collins. Very valuable assistance was rendered by Messrs. Dan. Davies and Daniel Watts. The duties of secretary were discharged in a very able manner by Miss J. Haddock, whilst the duties of treasurer were undertaken by Mrs. Johnson. The sale was a. distinct sue- cess, and the profits realised were far above the highest expectations. In connection with the local corps of the Salvation Army, a special week-end campaign was conducted by Lieutenant- Colonel and Mrs. Otway (the Welsh Divisional Commander) 011 Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. On Monday, a public tea was held. After the amassed public tea was held. After the amassed bands of Pentre, Trealaw, Heolfach, Tre- orcliy, Caerau, Gilfacli Goch, and Treher- bert had paraded the streets, a musical festival was held at Carrnel Chapel (kiiidIA- lent), presided oved by Lieut.- Colonel and Mrs. Otway. -+-- t A general meeting of the Treherbert football Club was held at the head- jqwarters (Stuart Hotel) on Monday, and puis presided over by Mr. Joseph Lewis (last season's treasurer). The balance sheet, which showed a deficiency of 15s. 7d.. was read, and accepted. It was decided that the Rugby football team should be kept going during the ensuing season Enquiries had been made re- jgarding a suitable field, and various 1 promises had been made by landlords. In view of the fact that the last season's ex-Schoolboys' team intend joining the Athletics next season, it was resolved that a second fifteen should also be played. Both teams are to enter the j League, which will be divided into two divisions for the .ensuing season, viz., under 17 years, and under 20 years. The ) first team will play in red jerseys, whilst the second team will play in black and white. Mr. J. Hibbs was unanimously re-elected as secretary, and Mr. I. Rey- nolds was appointed treasurer. Messrs. Nicholas T. John (Treherbert) were selected as joint trainers. The following were elected as I, committee:—Messrs. J. Lewis, T. J. Rogers, D. J. Davies, S. Edwards, E. LeAvis, J. Owen, D. Davies, D. Watkins, H. Rose, H. Davies, L. R. Webb, W. ¡ Powell, and J. Morgan. f On Sunday, the anniversary services of Emmanuel (B.C.) Chanel were held, when recitations, solos, dialogues, &c., were rendered by the school members. Three very edifying and entertaining services were enjoyed during the day by large congregations, and presided over by Mr. J. Phillips, B.A. (morning), the Rev. J. N. Elias, A.T.S. (afternoon), and Coun- 4 THE, ELLIOTT SAYONAS AT THE THEATRE ROYAL, TONYPANDY. '4- f D. R. Jones, M.E. (evening). The annual treat was held on Monday. Tea served at tables presided over by: -I Mrs. Wall, Mrs. Parry, Mrs. T. Lougher, ai d Mrs. A. Bell. Other attendants were: — Mrs. Powell, Mrs. Jones and Miss John. I'-liloii-iiig the tea, many interesting and enjoyable games were played on a spacious field, organised by the pastor (Rev. J. N. Elias) and others. Among other competi- tillns was a ladies' Avalking match, which w;, won by Mrs. Butt. Mr. J. Hutchins w. n the gentlemen's walking race. A joint meeting of the Zenana Mission and Bethany Young Christians' Union was held on Tueisday evening at the Bethany Schoolroom, when a very fair number attended. Mr. T. Anfield presided. In the unavoidable absence of Mr. Seth J? H's, who was appointed to address the ting, Mrs- Seth Jones read a paper on Duty." The folloAving programme avi" • much appreciated:—Recitation, ( hrist our Life," by Master I Stanley iM, gg t i soprano solo "Angels ever br <uc-. and fair," by Mrs. D. Griffiths ii|s rumental duet, by Masters L. Kinsey ai O. Jenkins; tenor solo, The Star of Ifc iiiehem," by Mr. Fred Norman; reci- tat'oii, "Cripple Ben," by Miss K. Cray; acii solo, "Love Divine," by Master Lemuel Kinsey. Mr. David Kinsey offi- ciated at the organ. A collection toAvards tllt missionary fund was taken. The following pupils of Mr. W. Morgan's Mining Class have been successful at an examination held in Anril last:—Stage I. Messrs. Walter Jones (First Class), R-. James Cole (First Class), D. John Jones (Second Class), John N. Hall (Second Class), and W. Samuel Bur chill (Second Class). A foot race of 880 yards for the sum of £ 20 a-side had been arranged to be run last Saturday between J. Watts, Tre- herbe.rt, and E. Handford, Blaengwynfi, on the local football grounds. The match, however, was cancelled, it being stated that Handford had withdrawn. BEA.NSTICKS in Bundles, large or small quantities—K. T.

Dinas. Mr. W. Abraham (Mabon), M.P., delivered an interesting lecture at Beth- ania Chapel on Monday evening, on A Night in the House of Commons." The chair was taken by the Rev. D. Overtop. Mabon said that the House of Parlia- ment was the most important centre of influence, not only of this country, but of the whole Avorld; yet the boy who worked at Pw 11 yr Engine, in Cwinavon, when eight years of age, through sheer grit and penseverance had successfuliy entered within its precincts as a repre- sentative of the Rhondda. The same high road to success and influence Avas still open to every boy who was mentally and morally qualified, and who was able to take advantage of the tide when it came to the desired haven. The best speech the hon. member ever heard in the house on the first reading of any Bill was that of the Grand Old Man—Mr. W. E. Gladstone-when he introduced his memorable Home Rule Bill. His refer- ence to the Right Hon. Lloyd George evoked tremendous cheers, and he con- gratulated him upon his wonderful courage in introducing the principle of taxing land values and royalties. A free breakfast table which the country eagerly looked forward to meant that all L the necessaries of life were absolutely un- taxed. Mr. D. Overton proposed, and Mr. David Davies seconded, a hearty vote of thanks to the speaker, and Mr. John Rees, on behalf of the fa.mily. thanked the lion, member for his kindness in giving his excellent services for their benefit.
Pentre, The district has been under a shadow lately, and is but slowly recovering its usual state of activity. Perhaps the most active body of men in this district at present is the Socialist Party. Meetings were held near St. Peer's Church on Sunday and Tuesday evenings. The former meeting was addressed by a Arell-knowii nVelsh Socialist, Mr. John James, Cwm- gorse, Carmarthenshire, who spoke very eloquently in both English and Welsh. On Tuesday evening, the prospective Labour candidate for Montrose addressed another meeting. This, gentleman claimed Messrs. Lloyd George and Winston Churchill as Socialists, and also claimed for the Inde- pendent Labour Party nearly all the crjedit for such, beneficial Acts as, the Eight Hours Bill and the Old Age Pen- sions. "—•— The settlement of the dispute between masters and men has resulted in a num- ber of Sunday Schools making arrange- ments for annual outings. The Salvation Army officers were on foot early on Thursday morning making preparations with the Taff Yale Railway Company for an outing to Aberavon next Monday; while the superintendent of Siloh Sunday School was also astir on Monday morning arranging for next fonday's. trip to Penarth. No doubt there will be a num- her of similar excursions by other schools in the locality. The first annual dinner of the Tivoli staff was held at the Bridgend Hfltel, Pentre, on Monday last, when a company numbering close upon thirty sat down to a splendid repast provided bv Host and Hostess Evans. Mr. W. E. Willis (con- tractor) nresided, and was ably assisted by Mr E. Hall. Mr. D. Davies, County Councillor E. T. Davies, Mr. J. Gunn, and Councillor Tom Jones (Treorchy). The postprandial proceedings were of an enjoyable nature, a varied programme being gone through as follows:—Speech, Mr. Willis; speech. Mr. Davies; duet, Host and Hostess Evans; selection, Tivoli Orchestra speech, Mr. Glenham (Gas and Water Office); and speech by Mr. James Gunn (manager). Mr. Homer, of Messrs Ruther Bros., gave a capital display of conjuring tricks, jugglery, &c., during the evening. The usual toasts and votes of thanks brought an ever memorable even- ing to a close. Maindy Mountain was the scene of a rather unusual scene on Sunday afternoon last, when a cow—the property of Mrs. Hughes, Parry Street, Ton-Pentre-was found to have sunk into the mud. in a field near the Croft. It is assumed that the animal must have met with its strange misfortune during the earlier part of the day, and had evidently made several futile attempts to extricate itself, for when found by some ramblers in the after- 110011, the unfortunate beast Avas embedded in the mud up to its neck, and was thoroughly exhausted. Help was soon forthcoming, and with the aid of shovels and ropes, the imprisoned cow was released from its predicament. (I) A very enjoyable programme was gone through at the Wesleyan Schoolroom. Pentre, on Monday night, the occasion being an entertainment held under the auspices of the Band of Hope. Mr. F. J. WoodAvard (Thornlea) presided, whilst Mr. Vowles accompanied in a very able manner. Recitations, dialogues, and solos were rendered to an appreciative audi- ence. The proceeds were devoted to a fund which is being raised with the inten- tion of giving the aged mothers of the chapel a. treat in the near future. A special flower service will be held on the last Sunday of this month, when appro- priate anthems will be sunfl by the choir, and special sermons preached. The offer- tones on that occasion also will go to swell the funds of this deserving scheme. (I)
Clydach Vale. The many friends of Mr. Lewis Lewis. High Street, will be pleased to learn of his success in the recent Home Office Mining Examination (Second tjlass). Mr. LeAvis was a pupil of Mr. F. Tanner Tonypandy. At the recent examination in Minins held under the auspices of the Home Office, Mr. Theophilus Deere, timekeeper at the Cambrian Colliery, was successful in obtaining a Second Class Certificate. He was coached for the examination bv Mr. F. W. Tanner, Tonypandy.
Ogmore Vale. Farewell Se,i-nioii.-The Rev. H. Traeey preaehed his farewell sermon at Bethel (P.M.) Church on Sunday last. Mr. Tracey has made many friends during his three years' stay at Ogmore Yale, and he has conducted his pastoral duties with conspicuous success. A presentation meet- ing takes place on Saturday next. Mining Successes.—Mr. H. G. Madley and Mr. Gomer Griffiths have been suc- cessful in obtaining the Second Class Manager's Certificate at the recent exami- nation at Cardiff. Both were students of the class conducted at the Aber School by Mr. D. C. Williams. Scholarship.—Miss Anuie Pope, daugh- ter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Pope, of Ogmore Vale, has been successful in gaining an entrance scholarship to the Bridgenct County School. The scholarship is tenable for one year and is of the value of t3 15s. per annum, besides train fare. Miss Pope was a scholar of the Aber Mixed Council School, and Ave congratulate her on her success. Fete.—The committee of the Children's Choir have decided to hold a fete on the Wyndham Field 011 Wednesday, July 28th, to support the funds of the choir. One of the events of the programme will be a Marathon Race around the Valley.
Penygraig. The Rev. R.. R. DaA-ies, Llandilo. and the KeAr. William Adaaas, B.A:, Llanelly. occupied the pulpit at Pisgah Chapel on Sunday and Monday.
Will the tennis fraternity allow us to make a proposition ? We suggest that, when the season is over, the Pavilion should be let out either as a dog's kennel OJ." a, navvy's tool box, or converted into a skating rink. A donkey was seen grazing on the green in front of the Conservative Club last week. We don't know whether he was nominally a member or not. Maybe he was virtually." We do not wish to generalise, but we have great faith in the proverb, Birds of a feather flock together." The Welsh version, perhaps, suits us better Adar o'r un lliw a hedant i'r un lie." Perhaps this affords a clue as to why the Conservatives so successfully "brayed" down some I.L.P. speakers at an open- air meeting a short while ago. Most of our readers are acquainted with Lamb's "Dissertation on a, Roast Pig," in which he describes how the people burnt down their houses in order to obtain roast pork. We suspect that somebody in Fenwick Street has been trying the experiment. '1 ——— I Yes, we quite agree with Mrs. B-c-, Madeline Terrace, that Miss G-'s, new hat is like a bell tent. We thought of a flower garden. Perhaps Miss G is the first in Pontvgwaith to obtain a "Small Holding." The young man seen with his arms round a car conductor's neck on Saturday last, was not kissing him. He was descending the stairs, when the car started suddenly and jerked him off his feet. He found an anchorage on the conductor's neck.
