Cricket. FERNDALE v. PONTYPRIDD. The above match was played at Ferndale last Saturday. Great interest was taken in it, as it had the possibility of deciding the championship of the Glamorgan League. Had Pontypridd won, they would have been champions of the League. Fern- dale haying won, they have two matches to play with Treorchy, and if they win both, Ferndale and Pontypridd will play in the final for the championship. Should Ferndale lose one of the matches, Ponty- pridd will be champions. Last Saturday's game was a very sensational one. Ponty- pridd batted first and scored 70. Fern- dale started well, having only two wickets down for 34 runs. Their chances looked very rosy, but When the third, fourth, fifth and sixth wickete only brought the ecore to 43 runs, things looked black. The seventh wicket was down for 66. T. Howells, one of the Ferndale players, having retired owing to illness, only two more were to bat, so Pontypridd still had a chance to pull through, but the eighth I wicket did not go down until 87 was Teachwi. Gower, who Bade the winning tut, played excellently and carried his bat cut. Scores: — PONTYPRIDD.

Hippodrome, Tonypandy, Wheelan and D' Alcourt are great favour- ites at the Hippo, this week. They render an operatic duet dealing with the notorious highwayman, Claude Duval, and his meet- ing with a princess in the heart of a forest. These artistes possess voices of no mean calibre and are immensely appre- ciated. Marie Jones is very successful in her efforts to please as the Welsh girl at the piano and Atkins, ventriloquist, with his figure and the motor, proves very amusing. The Peps are a very comical pair of gymnasts, their gymnastic work being exceptionally clever. The Orchids are also a smart comedy duo, and anyone witnessing this turn will learn a very quick way of making money. The pictures this week leave nothing to be desired, the story of Psyche being of exceptional in- terest.
Opera House, Treherbert. The above place of amusement has undergone a great amount of improve- ment since it was last open to the public. Formerly, the illumination was by gas, but now this has given way to the much more brilliant luminant electricity. Messrs. Pooles, Ltd., have spared no ex- pense in laying down electric plant both for the stage and auditorium, painters and decorators have been busy, and when this theatre is reopened to the amusement- loving public on Bank-Holiday next, Aug. 2nd, it will be a veritable blaze of light. The tremendous holiday attraction will be announced next week.
Cardiff Empire. On Monday next will be presented for the first time a new Fred Kamo produc- tion, entitled Perkins, M P with Fred Kitchen, the favourite comedian, in the title role. It is in three scenes, viz., the exterior of Steel and Robb's works, a street in Mudbank, and the House of Commons. The first scene opens with Emanuel Grubb (a self-made man) putting up for Parliament. The hooter sounds, and the men flock out of Steel and Robb's works for their dinner hour, amongst them being Perkins, who, after a few words with his friend Jotty, addresses the men, and asks them, Why not vote for one of themselves? Why not vote for Perkins P On their promise to do this, he promises in return three working days a week and also the tax off their beer, whereupon they leave Grubb and rally round Perkins. He then makes several promises to them. He is then interrupted by the Suffragettes, who promise to vote for him if he will try and get them into Parliament. The hooter then goes again for the men to return to work. Perkins is left till the last. The gates are slammed on him and he loses half a day. SceIl 2 finds Perkins canvassing for votes, and some very funny cross-talk ensues with a character called Billy Balmy and a Mr. Know-All, who imagines he knows more about Parliament than any- one else. In this scene Perkins enters with a fur motor-coat, motor-cap and goggles. In the third scene Perkins males his maiden speech (his chief point being to get votes for women), after several cross- talks with the members. A division is demanded by, the members, which is granted, the result being that women get into the House by a majority of twelve. Mr. Kitchen is ably supported by Miss Grace Wixon, as the leader of the Suffra- gettes Miss Aggie Morriss, as Mrs. Perkins; Mr. Herbert Sydney, as Emanuel Grubb; and Mr. T. McDonough, as Jotty. Other attractions include: Tom rE. Finglass, Piccolinos, Harry Tate's "Motor- ing Company, Bros. Dean, Jock Mills, Stalling & Revell, and Sadie Simpson. Pictures of the Welsh National Pageant will also be shown.
Theatre Royal, Tonypandy. Miss Lillie Monckton and her powerful company occupy the boards of the Royal this week with the grand drama, A Little Vagrant." The plot is a decidedly original one, and the play in the hands of this capable company is put before the audience in such a way as to arrest the attention and claim the enthusiasm of all. Whilst the main and principal features of the piece have been carefully retained, the part of the persecuted little "Vagrant" is thrown into greater prominence, and the comic business brought quite up to date. There are plenty of thrilling inci- dents and exciting situations, many of them on entirely new lines, and cannot fail to please the patrons of melodrama. It is full of smart and pithy sentiments, and thanks to the care with which the play has been staged, and the charm and humour shown in the acting, the storm and stress of human passion is presented in a most convincing and intelligible form before the audience, who show their appre- ciation in the most hearty manner. Next week, Across the, Frontier will be presented each evening, except Friday, when The Sinner that Repenteth will be staged.
Penygraig Tragedy. Prisoner at the Glamorgan Assizes.. Young Bound Over. Sidney Young, aged fifteen, a collier- boy) surrendered to his bail at Glamorgan Assizes at Swansea on Wednesday, before Mr. Justice Sutton, and was charged with the manslaughter of his brother, George Arthur Young, on April 9ist at Peny- graig, Rhondda Valley. Mr. Llewelyn Williams, M.P. (instructed by Messrs. Morgan, Bruce, Nicholas, and James), prosecuted, and Mr. B. Francis-Williams, K.C. (instructed by Messrs. Harold Lloyd and Cross) defended. It will be remembered that the boys quarrelled, and that prisoner took out a knife and stabbed his brother in the region of the heart. The prisoner pleaded guilty, and Mr. B. Francis-Williams, in asking the mercy of the court, said the prisoner and his brother had been on perfectly good terms before this occurrence. The de- ceased, who was the older of the two, was in manslaughter a very wide range Francis-Williams) was bound to say that on reading the depositions he had some doubt as to whether he could not set up that death was the result of an accident, but on more mature consideration and dealing with the evidence of the medical man and various other statements, he felt he could not successfully ujShold that con- tention. Although the prisoner was tech- nically guilty or manslaughter, no one knew better than his lordship that there was in manslaughter a very yide range from culpability to almost an absence of culpability. This case appeared to him to be one of no great degree of culpability. His Lordship, addressing the prisoner, said: "You are very young, and I firmly y believe you did not intend to hurt your brother. What happened was in a squabble, in which, I believe, your brother was the aggressor. I think I am justified in not z;1 sending you to prison, and I, therefore, bind you over to come up for judgment if required. You are discharged." The boy then left the dock.
