The Royal Visit.


The Royal Visit. How to See the Procession. Royal Time-Table. The preparations, in connection with the visit of H.R.H. Princess Louise and the Duke of Argyll on Friday and Saturday next are proceeding apace, and the enthu- siasm of the collier populace grows as the approaching event draws nearer. Already .long drab streets are being transformed as if by magic; the tramway standards along the route to be taken by the Royal party have been draped in crimson, and bunting of varied hues and descriptions wave merrily in the breeze. As' befits its position, Tonypandy is making a great effort to outbid its rivals in the matter of decoration. De Winton and Dunraven Streets are one mass of colour. Crimson standards rear their gilt-topped heads to the sky. and brilliant festoons hang from pole to pole. Business premises and private houses also vie with each other in a gorgeous display of banners,, pennants, Union Jacks and streamers; whilst the 'Taff Vale Railway Company have trans- formed the Tonypandy Station into a veritable fairyland. On Thursday and Friday evenings, additional colour will be \lent by the use of illuminated lanterns, which will adorn most of the business pre- lnises in the district. The Penygraig people are also making special efforts to give a loyal welcome to Her Royal Highness. It was only a short time ago that the inhabitants received an intimation that the Royal party would pass through the town on their way back to Miskiii Manor, but the Chamber of Trade are already uio and doing, and the contract for decorating has been given to Messrs. Morgan and Richardson, Cardiff. A sum of P-50 will be spent on decorations, the route thus treated being from the top of Brook Street, Williamstown, to the Naval Colliery Offices. A grand stand will be erected at the Turberville Square, where the Penygraig Philharmonic Choir will render selections as the Royal party goes by. In the evening, sports will be held at the Penygraig Park. The Rhondda Fach, which will be visited by the Royal party on Saturday, will be one blaze of colour. The arrangements are already well in hand, and the work of decorating has begun. At Ynyshir, where the cost of the decorations are being defrayed, by Mr. W. J. Thomas, J.P., the contract has been given to Msesrs. Morgan and Richardson, Cardiff.
