Ogmore Vale. Tradesmen's Outing.—The Ogmore tradesmen's outing took place on Wednes- day last, the rendezvous being Weston- super-Mare. The weather was delight- ful, and a most pleasant time was spent by the 130 enthusiasts who made the journey. The arrangements were carried, out by Messrs. D. J. Evans (secretary), Percy Slocombe, Geo. Morgan, and Michael Davies (treasurer). Marathon.—The first prize- for the Marathon in connection with the fete of the Juvenile Choir on July 28th has been augmented to £ 1. Demonstration.—The annual demonstra- tion of the Ogmore Valley. miners took place at Blackmill on Monday last. The weather was all that could be desired and large numbers of men formed the pro- cession, which was headed by the Nanty- moel Temperance Band. The large gathering was addressed on current coal- field topics by Mr. Stephen Walsh, M.P., Mr. C. B. Stanton, Aberdare, Mr. Tom Lucas, and the Rev. J. Nicholas, Tony- pan dy (in Welsh). The president was Mr. Wm. Brace, Nantymoel. Bicycle Accident.—Mr. Tom James, son of Mr. Wm. James, of Meadow Street, Ogmore Vale, met with a nasty bicycle accident on Saturday last. He was riding down the Llanharran hill, and in avoiding a collision with a cyclist coming, in the opposite direction, was thrown head fore- most into the bridge. The bicycle was wrecked and the rider was stunned. He was taken to a. neighbouring house, and was attended by Dr. W. B. Jones. Later in the evening the unfortunate lad came round, and was removed to his home, and is now progressing favourably. Presentation.—A farewell tea was held at Bethel (P.M.) Church on Saturday night last to honour the departure of their minister, the Rev. H. Tracey. Mr. Tracey has carried out pastoral duties at the above church for the past three years and has been eminently successful in his sphere of labour. A large number of friends sat down to tea, and afterwards a presentation meeting was held, when several friends, including the Rev. T. Simpson, of Wesley Church, eulogised the good work of Mr. Tracey. The presen- tation took the form of a purse of money subscribed for by the members of the church. The presentation was made in a fitting speech by Mr. Burridge, the oldest member present. Afterwards Mr. Tracey suitably responded. Mr. Tracey intends taking up his former profession, that of a journalist.
