Preparation Nearing Com- pletion. r Seats Atready Booked for 60,000 Children. Personalities of the Pageant. The preparations for the National Pageant or Wales, which have been afoot for months back, are now crystalling themselves into the concrete form of a magnificent spectacle. The dancers have been -trained and rehearsed, the little have been taught the evolutions by which they can gracefully group them- selves as Counties of Wales at the signal of the Pageant Master in the opening (Scene; the 500 stalwart football players have been taught to run wild under the < leadership of Ivor Bach, and to storm the battlemented walls of Cardiff Castle, all horrent with the spears of its mail- clad defenders. The Castle itself has reared up its frowning defences on the Pageant field-—that is to say, the mimic castle of the Pageant, if thus one may describe a stage structure with a frontage almost as long as that of the original castle itself, the main tower whereof blinks down com- placently upon the scene from the other side of the Taff. Practically everything is ready, in fact, including the enormous central grand stand and the side stands, which are together capable of accommo- dating nearly 50,000 people. This may sound an extravagant capa- city. but it should be borne in mind that -tlt,etdy over 60,000 seats have been booked for school children at the dress rehearsals. This is no mere figmentary figure, based on the estimates of probable school excur- sions sent in by the masters and mis- tresses of the various educational insti- tutes, public and private, throughout lies and Monmouthshire. It represents file actual bookings: and over -15,000 of these had been prepaid before July 7th. Of course, the, educational value of such a pageant—as presenting in their proper sequence, to the impressionable eye of childhood, a, series of pictures revealing all the epoch-marking events in our national history—is incalculable. [ The memories that remain, with us the longest throughout lite, and which we retain in the most vivid exactitude are those of the red-letter days of our youth, and the events which marked them. The National Pageant of Wales will present a picture of life and colour such as no man or child of the present gene- ration has ever seen. Its glow of scarlets and yellows and blues and purples, and queens; its mail-clad knights, its beau- teous demoiselles, its kings and chiefs ablaze in their ancient or mediaeval splen- dour, will impress themselves upon these avidly eager and plastic minds, and live there radiant for ever. The wild swirl of the assault upon Cardiff Castle will be a living pivot in memory oil which to balance all the jnediseval history of Wales. The romantic ] vicissitudes of Owen Glyndwr will a&so- j ciate themselves with the. splendour of the Pageant, and the high renown of the living actor who will play Glyndwr's part. Fift;v. years from now, the greybeard, sit- ting in the future equivalent of the old- time inglenook, will repeat to his grand- children the story of the great fifteenth century who flaunted the might of Eng- land and levied tribute on its fairest counties in the West. He will tell how he saw it all revised and acted again in the year 1909, and how the character of Glyndwr was taken by another great Welsh warrior, who was also, like Glyndwr, one of the kindliest of men, to wit, Lord Tredegar. "And Lord Tredegar, my children," he will explain to them, was one of the brave captains who led the immortal Six Hundred in the Charge of Balaclava, by Sebastopol, a hundred years ago. And Lord Tredegar is not the only well-known Welshman, or Welshwoman for that matter, who will figure as some hero or heroine of Welsh history in this wonderful National Pageant of Wales. j Among the five thousand ladies and gentlemen who are taking parts, high and ''low, in the great spectacle are the heads or representatives of all the historic and county families of Wales. In the opening scene, we have the role of Dame Wales assumed by the Marchioness of Bute, the present-day chatelaine of Cardiff Castle—beside which so many great events of real history were played, and in the shadows of which the Pageant will be held. In the same scene we have her sister-in-law, Lady Ninian Crichton Stuart, as "Glamorgan"; and ladies of similar social distinction repre- j sauting the other counties of the Princi- pality. The role of the Archdruid, in the Episode of Caradoc, is taken by Dyfed himself, while in the scene representing the sjdvent of the first wave of Cymry we find the character of the Pictish Prin- cesses, Tegaingl and Gwen—Tegaingl being the grandmother of KiiTg" Arthur the Great—assumed bv the Misses Mostyn, of Talacre. These fair daughters of Sir Pyers Mostyn, the head of one of the oldest families in Europe, trace their descent from both Tegaingl and Gwen. So does Lord Mostyn. of Mcstyn Hall, who appears as his more immediate ancestor, Puchard an Ilowel of Mostyn, to whom Henry VII. presented his sword on the battlefield of Bosworth. The honoured role of Dewi Sant will be sustained by the Vicar of Abe rp erg win, while the "chief rtiffiaii in the Episode of Hywel r Dda the Lawgiver will be represented by Captain Lionel Lindsay, the Chief Con- stable of Glamorgan! The Lord Mayor of Cardiff appears as Hywel Dda. I

Lady St. David's, from Pembrokeshire, in the West, takes the role of the Lady of Dyved," the old province wherein Pem- broke stands. Lady Llangattock, from Monmouth, at the Eastern extremity of what ought to be Wales, plays the Vife of Owen Glyndwr. Mrs. Forestier- Walker, from Pengam, in the same county, is the lovely Nest, daughter of Rhys ap Tudor, who broke the hearts of kings and nobles by the score in the days of Henry 1. One Morgan Williams, of St. Donat's Castle, is Llewelyn the Great in the scene wherein he appears with Basset of Beaupre—the famous Basset of Beaupre to whom is commonly ascribed the authorship of Magna Charta-their meeting with the Lords Marcher of Wales before proceeding to Runnymede. In the same scene, the part of Basset of Beaupre, A.D. 1215, is taken by his direct descen- dant, Mr. Basset of Beaupre of to-day, while Mrs. Basset of Beaupre and other members of the Basset family appear as the baron's wife and children. Moreover, thirty retainers of Beaupre follow Mr. Basset on the Pageant field as thirty of the baron's archers. Numerous similar instances could be picked out of the caste of 5,000 charac- ters—the case of Sir Wyndham Hanmer, for instance, in the part of his ancestor, Jenkin Hanmer, the brother-in-law of Owen Glyndwr. But anything like a com- plete analysis of this wonderful list of names would virtually mean a genealogical dissertation upon all the leading families in the Principality, and for that there is no space at the disposal of any newspaper.
Owing to the unsuitable weather which prevailed on Tuesday, the cricket match which had been arranged to be played between Treherbert Athletic 2nds and Gosen (Treorchy) on the Taff Field was postponed. v'
Ratepayers' Association Meeting at Penygraig. The annual meeting of the above Asso- ciation was held at the Dinas Institute last Wednesday evening, under the presi- dency of Dr. T, R. Llewellyn, C.C. The meeting was well attended. The President remarked that the Asso- ciation was intended to safeguard the interests of the ratepayers. Such asso- ciations were not intended to be antago- nistic to elected public bodies, but were invariably helpful to such to carry out their duties in a satisfactory manner. In its endeavours to help public bodies to practise economy and efficiency in their undertakings, he believed that their Asso- ciation had fully justified its existence, and he wished it every success in the future. Mr. Harry Shepherd gave a, detailed account of the finances of the Associa- tion, and he gave several instances of substantial reductions obtained in the ratable value of properties owned by members of the Association during the past year. The Assessment Committee had already acknowledged the Association by allowing its secretary to appear before them on behalf of any member who had any grievancees to redress. The total membership at present was 126. Dr. T. R. Llewellyn was again elected president for the ensuing year; and Messrs. John Evans (Williamstown), Dd. Charles (Trealaw), Wm. Richards (Tre- a law), and others were elected vice-pre- sidents. A vote of thanks to the secretary and the president ended the meeting.
