Mabon's Welcome. Mabon then spoke. Turning to their Royal Highnesses, lie said that lie wished to convey to Her Royal Highness and his Grace the Duke of Argyll, the thanks of the people of South Wales in general, and of the people of the Rhondda Valley in particular, for the honour conferred upon them that afternoon. He had been asked to tender to Her Royal Highness the grateful thanks of those whom he represented. Their thanks were in a sense redoubled when they recalled the fact that they claimed to have relation- ship, as a nation, nearer to the bosom of the Throne of Great Britain than any other nation (loud cheering). They had, therefore, a soft corner in their hearts for that gracious Throne, and believed that the same remark was applicable to the Throne as regarded the Welsh nation. They had been called" Gallant Little Wales," but lie would like to have his country re-christened as Wise Little Wales (applause). And that for a very good reason. Their great Prince and his noblemen had had the good sense to make a bargain with the great Throne of Eng- land before they were beaten and con- quered, and had thus won the merit of being known as an unconquered nation (applause). They had, however, secured something much more valuable than that. In the bargain referred to there was a great privilege retained to them as a little nation, because the King of England could not sit on his throne before he had first been trained to do his work as the Prince of Wales (applause). So they claimed to be nearer the Throne than any other nation. Hence, too, their un- swerving loyalty (prolonged and enthu- siastic cheering). Hence their unmitigated faithfulness (renewed cheering). They were really grateful to the Princess for the trouble and kindness and graciousness of Her it oval Highness in coming so far from home to honour that district with her presence—(loud clieers)-—to visit them for the purpose of opening that hall (renewed clieers). That building really looked somewhat too pretentious for the class for whom it was destined, but it was, nevertheless, a workmen's hall, and the fact that Her Royal Highness had come there to open that hall would never be forgotten (enthusiastic applause).
Tribute to the Late Judge. I In a few days hence the beneficent donor of that hall, Mr. Rhys Williams, of Miskin' Manor—(loud cheers)—would hand it over to the boys present (loud applauso). The key of the hall would be handed to a committee of working men to make use of it—and they would make good use of it (applause). He had no hesitation in pledging Her Royal High- ness that the hall would be put to the best possible use in the direction of elevating the class for whom it was destined (applause). Oh, yes; on. one evening they would have there the voice of the lecturer, on the next day the sweet voice of the singer, then an eisteddfod, and then a concert (applause). There was, indeed, no knowing the possibilities of the uses to which it would be put; and they would have meetings of work- men in those committee-rooms doing the best that they honourably could to im- prove the position of the workers (ap- plause). Her Royal Highness would, doubtless, have noticed that that hall was designated the Judge's Hall." It was commemorative of the late Judge Gwilym Williams, a judge who was known as the sympathetic judge of the working class of that county—(loud cheers)—a judge who studied the interests of the widow and the fatherless, and who investigated many a case in order to do a kindness (renewed cheering). The late judge was there administering justice in that dis- trict in the name of Her Royal Highness' illustrious mother—the Queen Mother, "Our Queen," the Great White Queen, the Empress of India, the lustre of whose name would never fade, and the bene- ficence of whose reign would never cease (lo,ud and enthusiastic cheering). Her Royal Highness would now see how thank- ful they felt, and could appreciate the appreciation of the great services which she had rendered that community in coming amongst them (loud cheers). Mabon then moved that the profoundest thanks of that assembly be given to Her Royal Highness Princess Louise and his Grace the Duke of Argyll. His Grace had served his country in the House of Commons in the same time as their old Mabon—(laughter and applause)—and lie had just told him (Mabon) that he would still rather he there than in the House of Lords (HlwIause). Dyna ei brofiad That is his experience "). added Mabon, and to these great and good people we tender our most sincere thanks" (pro- longed cheers). Lord Tredegar, who was enthusiastically received, seconded the vote of thanks to Her Royal Highness. He asked, What is grandeur, what is power1, but the heavier toil, the superior pain?" Mem- bers of the Royal Family thought nothing of toil or pain if they could go about helping others (applause). It was a great pleasure to him to assist in opening that hall, because it was erected in memory of one of his greatest friends. Everybody had some great friend upon whom they could relv for ready and sound advice. If anybody wanted trustworthy advice, they could always set it from the late Mr. Williams, of Miskin Manor. Gene- rally a hall of that kind was placed where it could he seen and used, and that could be said of the Judge's Hall (hear, heal"). He excused himself for making a long Ispeech by the difficulty of having to follow a great Parliamentarian like Mabon (hear, hear). The hall was wOI'+hy of the honour which had been done them by Princess Louise, and for which they were deeply grateful. Sir Ivor Herbert, Bart.. M.P., said that, though following such orators as Mabon and Lord Tredegar, lie would en- deavour, as a Welshman (applause)—and as one who knew the Welsh heart and Welsh feeling, to express to Her Royal Highness the deep gratitude they felt in the pleasure of having her and the Duke present. They rejoiced to see one who had descended from the illustrious Queen, who was the idol of her people, and they honed she would take away with her very pleasant memories of her visit to the Rhondda, and of tbe people she had sePH at their doors, of the blackened men returning from their daily toil, and of the mountains, on which the people loved to move and breathe the pure atmosphere. That was typical of the Welsh people, who liked to rise above anything that was common or sordid in their surroundings, to lift themselves as with wings on the spirit of their music, their art, and their religion (applause). No one knew this better than his friend Judge Williams, and, therefore, it was especially appro- priate to raise that building for the use of those who were of his own nation (applause). At tho request of Mabon, the choir sang Y Delyn Aur" (" The Golden Harp "). The effect was wonderful, and Her Royal Highness and the Duke of Argyll were evidently deeply touched. Following; it, with equally thrilling effect, the whole audience rose and sang "Aber- ystwyth."
The Rhondda Council Presenta- tion. Councillor Thomas, as chairman of the Rhondda. Council, then presented Prin- cess Louise with a handsome golden vase, standing about 14in. high, on the model of an antique salt cellar recently pre- sented to the King. The Clerk to the Council (Mr. Nicholas) read the following accompanying address: To Her Royal Highness Princess Louise, J Duchess of Argyll. May it please your Royal Highness. We, the chairman and members of the Rhondda Urban District Council, on behalf of the inhabitants of the Rhondda Vail ev. desire to offer to your Royal Highness our most cordial and loyal welcome to the district, and to tender to you our heartfelt thanks for your gracious presence amongst llS. We acknowledge with deep gratitude the great interest which your Royal High- ness has always evinced in tho welfare of the people, and of which your visit here to-day is only another instance. Your coming to the Rhondda is much appreciated, and the occasion will always be remembered by us with the keenest pleasure. We desire to assure your Royal High- ness of the loyalty of the inhabitants to his Gracious Majesty the King, and we earnestly pray that his Majesty's reign may be prolonged and attended with progress and prosperity to his Empire. Finally, we earnestly hope Providence may accord to your Royal Highness many, many years of health and happi- ness, and that the Divine protection may ever rest upon you. Given under the common seal of the Rhondda Urban District Council this 23rd day of July, in the year of our Lord, 1909. (Signed) THOS. THOMAS, Chairman. W. P. NICHOLAS, Clerk.
Mid-Rhondda Chamber of Trade's I Presentation. This was followed by the presentation of a beautiful silver casket on an oak base by Mr. Leonard Llewelyn (president), on behalf of the Mid-Rhondda Chamber of Trade. It was symbolical of the coal industry. The lid was surmounted by the figure of a collier, with mandril, lamp, food-box, and block of wood, and on the pedestal the rose, the shamrock, and the thistle were embossed. At the corners there were Corinthian pillars and four Welsh dragons, while on the front of the casket was engraved a pithead, the back being an engraved representation of the Judge's Hall. It was of solid silver. The inscription re,,ids To Her Royal Highness Princess Louise, from the Mid-Rhondda and Dis- trict Chamber of Trade, on the oceasio'i of Her Roval Highness' visit. Julv 23rd, 1909. The secretary (Mr, John Rees) read the following address: May it please your Royal Highness. We, the representatives of the Mid- Rhondda Chamber of Trade, crave leave to present this humble and loyal address of welcome on the occasion of your Royal Highness' visit to Mid- Rhondda, the centre of the coal indus- try of the Rhondda Valleys. We profoundly appreciate the honour graciously bestowed upon us, and will always cherish the memory of the visit of an illustrious daughter of an illus- trious Queen, whose beneficent reign will stand out in history as coincident with the greatest industrial, commer- cial, and Imperial triumphs ever re- corded in the progress of the nation's triumphs, wlilich are, moreover, per- petuated and extended by the humane and wise Sovereignty of His Majesty King Edward the Peacemaker. The inhabitants of the Rhondda Valley are deeply indebted to your Royal Highness for performing the gracious ceremony of opening this Memorial Hall, which has been erected as a gift of the late Judge Gwilym Williams' family to the district which he faithfully served for manv years. It is our earnest prayer that your Royal Highness may be granted every blessing of health and happiness, and a long continuance of the noble life, so replete with good works and kindly actions which has endeared your Royal Highness to the hearts of the people. LEONARD W. LLEWELYN, President. J. OWEN JONES, Chairman. LLEWELLYN EVANS, Vice-Chairman. THOS. EVANS, Treasurer. JOHN REES, Secretary.
The Duke of Argyll Replies. The Duke of Argyll, who was very warmly received, said he could not help thinking that was a .sorrowful as well as a joyful occasion, for that hall was the memorial of a man whom they knew and admired. In the present time, there were two calliiigs in life which were more beneficent than any other—a minister of religion and a judge—the one who tried to assuage the quarrels and strife which always arise between mankind, and the other who administers justice. It was difficult to gain greater fame in this existence than as a wise and upright judge. He felt quite unable, .with his poor Irish-Scots tongue, to compete with the exuberant Gaelic of Mabon. ("Hear, hear," and laughter). He was glad to be able to express the gratitude Princess Louise and himself felt at the magnificent reception that had been given them by the Rhondda people. Their gifts would always remind them of their very plea- sant visit. Their towns looked like their garden in tulip time, and to the feast of the eye—including the gallant Territorials under General Lloyd—had been added that of the ear. Their soldiers were more gallant than those in the time of Eliza- beth, and their music—well, it was Welsh (a""lau.se). They had had a splen- did reception, and it was certainly no task to come down amongst them. And did not Mabon—he was nearly calling him King Mabon—(applause)—find it more difficult to get away from London? It was more difficult to get the ancient Mabon out of Gloucester Castle than it was to get their own Mabon away from London (anolause and laughter). Accord- ing to tradition, to cet the ancient Mabon out of Gloucester Castle they had to summon first the assistance of a stag, then a. dog, and so on through the whole of the Zoological Gardens (more laugh- ter). It was a great pleasure to meet Mabon away from Westminster, and to find him so able a musical conductor of one of those famous magnificent Welsh choirs that it was always such a great pleasure to listen to (applause). The late Queen, the present King, and other rulers had always delighted in the joy of Welsh music, and he told them in Scotland they could not hold a candle to a Welsh choir (applause). Mabon, who referred to the time when lie used to sit in the Horse of Commons with the Duke when the latter was the Marquess of Lome, M.P., then called on Mr. Robert Jones to sing ".Hen Wlad fv hadal1." The proceedings finished with the sing- ing of God save the King." Lord Tredegar then gave his arm to Princess Louise, whom he accompanied to her motor-car, the Royal party leaving amidst the cheers of the assembled thou- sands of people.
Princess Opens Aerial Railway. Before leaving Tonypandy the Princess opened the new aerial railway in connec- tion with the Glamorgan Collieries, bv means of which rubbish is taken from the pits to the top of the mountain between the Rhondda Valleys. It is driven by an electric motor. The Princess touched the button, and thus set the apparatus in motion. Her Royal Highness took a keen interest in the tipping process, remark- ing to Mr. Leonard Llewelyn, the general manager, that slie hoped the device would prove thoroughly successful. The. Princess was particularly gracious to Mr. Leonard Llewelyn, of whose bravery at the Clydach Vale disaster four years ago she had been informed.
School Children's Welcome Not the least interesting phase of +1.. Royal visit was the hearty welooi c accorded to H.R.H. Princess Louise by 500 boys and girls of the Trealaw Schools. Through the generosity of Mr. Charles, Garth Aran, Trealaw, a, most commodious stand was erected near Seion Chapel (free of all charge) to accommodate this crowd of juveniles. As the Royal party ap- proached, Rliyfelgyrch Gwyr Harlech vvas struck up with great spirit and en- thusiasm. Her Royal Highness, having graciously consented to stay to listen, was evidently charmed, and waved her greet- ings to the children in most cordial fashion. The Welsh chorus ended, three cheers for the Princess were called for, and immediately the stage became resplendent with flags and fans of the national colours, while the welkiu rang with the children's deafening Hurrahs." The little scene closed with a capital rendering of the National Anthem. All the music was rendered in three parts, and great credit is due to Mr. T. P. John, the headmaster (who wielded the baton most efficiently), and his staff, for the preparation of this most thrilling episode. In accordance with his usual custom of interesting himself in whatever concerns the local school children, Councillor D. C. Evans, of Trealaw, deserves our praise for 10 assiduously helping forward all arrangements in connection with the children's "welcome" and the "treat" which followed. It is nl;3alllg to note that the gold Davy lamp was supplied by Messrs. Ruf it Kaltenbach, jewellers, Porth The casket presented to 11. 1-11. ii Princess Louise by the Mid-Rhondda Chamber of Trade, was designed by Mr T. Edgar Lewis, mechanic at the Gla- morgan Collieries, and supplied by Mr. Barney Isaacs, jeweller, Tonypandy. The beautiful scroll illuminated address presented bv the Chamber was on two pages of vellum, bearing the Princess arms, monogram of the Mid-Rhondda and District Chamber of Trade, and backed with roan leather, and silk flap tied with ribbon. This splendid work of art was supplied by Messrs. Robert Davies and Co., Tonypandy. Through the kindness of Mr. Rhys Williams, Miskin Manor, all the school children of Mid-Rhondda were enter- tained to tea at the schools after the Royal visit.
The Heating Apparatus. The apparatus for warming the new Judge's Hall, vestibule, reading and billiard rooms is being installed by Messrs. Hampton and Co., the well-known heating experts, Oxford Lane. Cardiff. Messrs. Hampton have also the heating contract at the new Bethania Chapel, Llwynypia.
Mr Rhys Williams Delighted. Mr. John Ree,s, secretary of the Mid- Rhondda Chamber of Trade, who, with the chairman, Mr. J. Owen Jones, were largely responsible for the excellent arrangements in connection with the Royal visit at Mid-Rhondda, has received the following letter from Mr. W. P. Nicholas 24th Julv. 1900. Dear Mr. Rees,—I have had to return to London in connection with the County Water Bill, but I feel I must write to both compliment and congratu- late the chairman and yourself on the admirable way in which all the arrange- ments passed off yesterday. The credit is entirely due to you. Immediately Mr. Rhys Williams returned to Miskin on Friday afternoon, he rang me up on the telephone, and expressed his extreme pleasure and grateful thanks for the way in which everything passed off. He was more than delighted, and stated that the Princess also was highly gratified and pleased. He asked me to convey to you all his thanks.—-Yours very truly, W. P. NICHOLAS.
The Princess at Tonyrefail. Returning to Miskin after the opening ceremony at Trealaw, the Royal visitors on their way halted at Tonyrefail, where Major Hill-Male's little daughter pre- sented a bouquet. The village had been gaily decorated, and the school children, with flags in their hands, sang patriotic songs and the National Anthem. The Major, in introducing his daughter, said that, no doubt, during the past three hours Her Royal Highness and her hus- band had been greeted bv thousands of the residents of the Rhondda Valleys, and had witnessed the tasteful decorations, but he could assure her no mere loyal or affectionate greeting had awaited her than at Tonyrefail. Her Royal Highness ac- knowledged the kind welcome extended to her, and shook hands with Mrs. Hill- Male, Mr. William Evaus, J.P. (chairman of the reception committee), the Rev. D. J. Thomas (curate-in-chadge of the local churches), and others.
Royal Concert at Miskin Manor. On Thursday evening last, the Royal house party at Miskin Manor were enter- tained, the Rhondda Orpheus Glee Society being responsible for the programme. It may be here mentioned that this Glee Society is composed of singers from the famous late Mr. Tom Stephens' Rhondda Glee Society which appeared at Windsor Castle before the late Queen Victoria, the present conductor, Mr. David Jones, being Mr. Stephens' pianist. Starting from Pentre in stormy weather, the party journed by brake through Tony- pandy and Trealaw to Llantrisant, where, previous to their appearance at Miskin Manor, they were entertained to dinner at the old Miskin Inn by the hostess, Mrs. Gwilym Williams. Mr. Tom Davies presided over this function. Dinner over, the party adjourned to the Manor in brakes. Here the party were ushered into the large drawing-room, where they took their stand at the extreme end. The first items on the pro- gramme were God save the King and God bless the Prince of Wales," which were rendered in the Cymric vernacular and it was during these selections that the Princess led the way into the concert room, accompanied by her worthy host, Mr. Rhys Williams. The Princess at once recognised the melody, and, turning towards the party, smiled graciously, remarking, It is splendid." In the meantime, the Duke of Argyll held a short conversation with the conductor, Mr. David Jones, commenting on the ex- cellent rendering. The choir's next selection was The Crusaders," followed by Ar hvd v nos," The Two Roses," and the" Soldier's Chorus," all the item", being warmly applauded by the Royal auditors. Mr. John Devonald came next with his penillion singing, with harp accompani- ment. The verses some very appropriate refe 'ences "8 Princess, the Duke of Aigyll a lie Miskin family, and were keenly -,eciated. A striking contrajt tl the programme came with the appearance of little Miss Phyllis Novinsky, a remarkable child violinist of only 7\ summers. Without the least shade of nervousness Miss Phyllis stood up before the Royal assembly, and executed from memory that difficult piece, the Andante Move- ment from Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto, eliciting from the Princess the. ejaculation, Splendid Splendid The subsequent items by the party were The Little Church," Gwvi- Harlech," and (by special request) ]'yn On several other items being omitted owing to the late hour. Miss Tilly Thomas (Pentre), a double National winner, also rendered brilliantly a most difficult violin solo, for which she was warmly applauded. The programme was concluded in-itli Hen Wlad fy Nhadau," with Mr. Owen Treharne as soloist, and God save the King," the whole assembly joining in the refrain. The programme over, the Princess Louise approached Mr. David Jones, the conductor, and shook his hand, comment- ing, It has been simply delightful the voices seemed so fresh." Her Royal High- ness, on leaving the room, turned to the party and remarked. "I am highly delighted with your performance." The Duke of Argyll approached the members of the party and expressed personal plea- sure in having heard such splendid sing- ing, adding, The Princess has been highly delighted." The party then adjourned to the billiard room, where Mr. Rhys Williams entered, and expressed his pleasure and thanks at the delightful concert which they had given. Mr. Williams then handed to the secretary, Mr. Clement Davies, a handsome cheque in aid of the party's funds. Mr. Tom Davies is to be highly complimented on the manner in which all the arrangements were carried out.
-+- Carnival and Sports at Tonypandy.

It is a Great Mistake to put off an Optician until the eyes, from sheer neglect", can 1:0 1< nger do tlieir woik. Common Spectacles chosen at random, can do considerable damage to the eyesight; therefore, always visit a competent optician when on ft el the Deed of spectacles, when y n will have your eyes tested by i-cientifie methods You Lose Nothing as 110 charge is made ioi testing the sight; and if g1 asses are not necessaiy you will be told so Chidren's Eyes should always be examin d if they are at all dull or backward in learning, as this i* frequently due to difficulty in seeing, and many a child apparently dull-witted, becomes quick and bright after being litted with proper glasses. Particular Attention is given to fr-iine-litting, so that the fnll benefit can be derived from the lenses, which is impossible with ill-litting frames. ]\'01E IlIR A PDF ES S — EMR¥S RICHARDS, Chemist and Optician, Dunraven Pharmacy, TONYpANOY (lower end, the First Chemist nearest the Trealaw Biidy;e).

J.P., Alderman Wtii. Morgan, J.P., Mr. Watts Morgan, Mr. J. Owen Jones, Mr. Llewellyn Evans, Mr. Thomas Evans, Mr. John Rees, Dr. W, E. Thomas, Mr. J. D. Williams, J.P., Mr. William Jenkins, J.P. (Ystradfechan), and many other leading inhabitants of the district. As the Princess Louise approached the steps to the platform, pretty Miss Nora Nicholas, daughter of Mr. W. P. Nicholas, presented her with a lovelv bouquet of orchids and carnations, the Princess smiling her pleasure in accepting the gift. The following were then presented to Her Royal Higliiiess:-Couiieilloi, Thos. Thomas (chairman of the District Coun- cil), Mr. W. P. Nicholas (clerk), Mr. L. W. Llewelyn (president of the Chamber of Trade), and Mr. John Rees, County Stores (secretary). Mr. Rhys Williams then asked Her Royal Highness to accept the gold key of the building. Her Royal Highness, who wore a lovely dress of light heliotrope material, with a V-shaped yoke of cream lace, with a diamond brooch at her throat, and a rope of pearls falling in a loop from the neck to the waist, in a few words expressed her high appreciation of the honour done her by the gift (applause). "Crugybar," to the tune of the well- known hymn "0 fryniau Caersalem ceir gweled," was next sung, and both the Prince.s and the Duke of Argyll were evidently much struck bv the beautiful singing and the extraordinary effect. Immediately before singing;, Mr. John Rees, the secretary, handed Her Royal Highness a translation of Crugybar," by the Rev. John Thomas, M.A., Liver- pool, and Her Highness heartily joined in the singing.
