Mardy Arrangements. The arrangements in connection with the Royal visit to Mardy are progressing well. A great deal of bunting has been secured, and the inhabitants vie,, with one another in decorating their houses. Through the generosity of Dr. Glanville Morris, Mr. E. W. Harries, Councillor H. E. Maltby, and Mr. T. E. Richards, all the school children, to the (number of about 1,200, will be regaled with tea, and cake at the schools. The children will be lined up in front of the schools in readi- ness for the arrival of Her Royal High- ness, and, under the leadership of Mr. G. Lewis, the headmaster, will sing a song of welcome at the opportune moment. The illuminated address in album to be presented to Her Royal Highness on behalf of the Sir Charles Warren Executive is a splendid work of art, designed and executed by Mr. D. J. Ryan, artist, Tre- orohy. The album is designed with the most appropriate insets, containing Her Royal Highness' Coat of Arms, the Arms of Wales, the Coalfield Arms, and Ambu- lance. with sketches of collieries, old and modern. The address is written in Old English, and is handsomely bound in the Royal colour, with gold burnished shield- plate on cover, and gold clasps, and the Royal Coat of Arms engraved thereon. The main features of the casket to be presented by the Mid-Rhondda Chamber of Trade are symbolical of the coal tjfade. On top of the lid is a collier, with mandril, lamp, food-box, and block of wood, stand- ing on a oedestal, on which is embossed the Rose, Shamrock, and Thistle. On the four corners, standing on an equal number of Corinthian pillars, are four Welsh Dragons. On the front of the casket is an engraving of a pithead, and on the back an engraving of the Judge's Hall. The body of the casket is richlv chased in relief, the lower -aneLs being embossed and pierced. The inside is richly lined with Royal red silk and velvet. The casket is of solid silver and London hall-marked. The whole is 'mounted on a fumed oak pedestal, on which is a silver plate bearing the following inscription —" Presented to H.R.H. Princess Louise from the Mid- Rhondda and District Chamber of Trade, on the occasion of Her Royal Highness' visit to the district, July 23rd, 1909." The casket was designed and supplied by Mr. Barney Isaacs, Mirror of Gems, Tonypandy.
