Mr. Rees, who was only 42 years of age, wass employed .at the Lewis Merthyr Collieries, and whilst unloading a tram of rubbish, a huge stone fell upon him, fracturing the ribs so .severely as to cause the shattered -ends to penetrate the lungs, causing death within a few minutes of his arrival home. The deceased leaves a widow and six children to lament his untimely end, together with an aged mother and a number of brothers and sisters. Deceased was a. member of the Forth Carnival -Committee from its establishment, and L to .show their sympathy with the bereaved, and at the request of Coun- cillor W. T. Davies, the Carnival Com- mittee, all wearing white carnations, attended the funeral, which took place on Saturday last. The Britannia Lodge of the Royal Ivorites Society, of which deceased was also a member, were also present. The funeral was one of the largest ever keen at Cymmer, extending nearly a mile in length.

Treherbert. With deep regret we record the death of Mr. Robert Jones, aged 77 years, of 26, Bute Street, who died on Friday last, after a very short illness. Deceased had resided at Treherbert for the last fifty years, and was a. faithful attendant at Libanus (W.B.) Chapel. The funeral, a very large one, took place on Wednesday, the remains being interred at Carmel Burial-ground. On Sunday, at Carmel (W.C.) Chapel, The Missionary Field was the theme of the first of a series of special children's services which are now being given at intervals by the pastor, Rev. J. Pethian Davies. These services will undoubtedly become very popular. A successful miscellaneous concert was given last Thursday at Blaenycwm (W.B.) Chapel by the Blaenycwm Juveniles, con- ducted by Mr. John Davies. They were assisted by the Blaenycwm Male Voice Party, under the able conductorship of Mr. William Davies, A.T.C.S. Mr. John Roderick presided. A large audience listened with rapt attention to the juvenile choir, the choruses in particular being heartily applauded and appre- ciated. The renderings of the male voice party were also delightful. The very entertaining programme was as follows: —Choruses by juveniles, How Excel- lent," Comrades' Song, of Hope," and Good-night Hues of Day and Comrades in Arms," by the male voice party; song, Into Thy Hands," Miss e c M. Rees; recitation, Huiio yn y Lofa," Miss M. Morgan; song, When I read of the sweet old story," Miss M. G. Wil- liams song, Miss S. Griffiths; song, Only Tired," Miss L. J. Williams; song, Miss M. Jones, and chorus, Inspiration recitation. The Women of Mumbles Head," Miss L. Rees; song, Faith," Miss B. Cole song, '• The Little Beggar Girl," Miss M. L. Thomas; piano- forte selection, Mr. W. Heber Evans, A.L.C.M. and a tenor song. Nant y Mynydd," Mr. D. Davies, who was en- thusiastically encored. The accompanists were Messrs. T. Griffiths and W. H. Evans. The proceeds of the concert were towards providing a trip for the Sunday School scholars, which eventuated at Aber- avon on Monday. The Old Cricket Field was the scene of unusual commotion and excitement on Wednesday evening. A good crowd had assembled to witness the cricket match between the Treherbert Wesleyans and Mr. Dai Galloway's XI. Mr. Galloway had selected a stron- side, and a good game was anticipated. The chosen eleven batted first, and for some time all went well. Two of Mr. Galloway's batsmen were making a great stand and the score promised to mount raoidly, when lo! one was stumped (in more senses than one) and was given out by the Wesleyans' umpire, although the batsman had not moved an inch from the crease. The decision brought forth loud hoots and protestations from the crowd, but the batsman was sensible enough not to dis- pute the umpire. The crowd had hardly been pacified, when another seemingly gross injustice was clone to another bats- man by the same umpire, and this again I was the means of creating an angry scene, much abusive language being used against the umpire. After many unplea- sant interruptions, Mr. Galloway's side was all out for 69 runs. With the Wes- leyans batting, one wicket had fallen for 17 runs. Then one of the batsmen was given out l.-b.-w. bv the other umpire, the decision bein™ greeted with ironical cheering by the crowd. The batsman. however, refused to leave the pitch, and this was the sign for a general "blow up" amongst the spectators. Mr. Dai Galloway's team left the field in disgust. The rowd surged on to the pitch and immediately surrounded both umpires and players, making hot-worded arguments which almost ended in blows. The ending was indeed a disgraceful one, but this unpleasant rowdyism would never have occurred had the Wesleyan batsman not made the foolish mistake of rebelling against the umpire. The anniversary services in connection with the Wesleyan Sunday School, Blaen- rhondda, were held on Sunday, presided over by Mr. S. Hendich, Pentre. The renderings of solos, duets, recitations and dialogues by the school scholars were all very creditable, and with the assistance of a section of the Blaenycwm Orchestra, who rendered selections under the leader- ship of Mr. Wm. Davies, A.T.S.C., the services were characteristically successful. Mr. W. Phillips conducted the singing, and Miss T. Jones filled the role of pianist. These services are to be con- tinued next Sunday, under the presidency of Mr. H. J. Lewis, Treorchy. The members of the three local juvenile tents of the Independent Order of Rechabites, namely, Libanus, Carmel and Emmanuel, had an outing to Aberavon on Saturday last. On Monday, Treherbert was practically deserted, for no less than seven Sunday Schools had outings to various seaside resorts. Blaenrhondda Welsh Wesleyan. Tabernacle (Blaen- rhondda), and Soar (Blaenycwm) went to Porthcawl; Libanus (W.B.) and Bethany (E.B.) to Barry Island; and Blaenycwm (W.B.) Chapel tripped to Aberavon. The above Sunday Schools were fortunate in having "sunshine without rain." --+-- At Emmanuel (E.C.) Chapel last Thurs- day evening, what was termed a ladies' surprise meeting was given by the young men of the church. This took the form of an entertainment, which was presided over by Mr. David Jones. After a short musical programme, the Chairman turned guide, and conducted the ladies around the building, and eventually into an ad- joining room, where there had been secretly prepared a sumptuous cold spread. At this, agreeable smiles lit up the faces of the young ladies present, and the evening, from then to the end, was a most joyous one. Most of the arrange- ments were in the capable hands of Mr. D. A. James (the Don), secretary of the Sunday School. --+-- Little Beatrice May Argus, aged nearly four years, of 27, Victoria Street, met with an accident on Friday which led to her subsequent death on the following Sunday. It appears that the child was sitting on the metals on the Tynewydd siding, when a truck loaded with sand and cement (which was being pushed along by some men who had not noticed the child) passed over and severed one of her legs near the hip. At the inquest, which was held at the local Police Station on Monday, a verdict of Accidental death was returned. The funeral took place on Tuesday at Treorchy Cemetery, the Rev. H. Harris, D.D., of Libanus, officiating. BEA^ STICKS in Bundles, large or small quantities.—li. T. Jones, The Tram Terminus, Treherbert. 4893
Dinas. On Sunday and Monday last, the 24th annual anniversary M'as held at the Piimitive Methodist Chapel. Over fifty recitations and songs were given by the school children, and the choir, under the leadership of Mr. John Jones, performed their work in an admirable manner. The following were the accompanists: —Mr. Edgar Williams, Penygraig (organ), and Mr. W. H. Thomas. Wain Court (piano); whilst the chief soloists were Miss Gwen John and Miss Gwen Jones. The con- ductor of the services was Mr. R. Thomas. Tonypandy. On Monday, the Sunday School children formed a procession and paraded through Penygraig, returning through Trealaw. Granny Jones, who is over 82 years, and who is as sprightly as a young maid, had collected sufficient provisions of all kinds to treat the chil- dren with tea, cake, and other delicacies, which were thoroughly enjoyed. In the evening, an excellent miscellaneous con- cert was held, and Mr. David Jones, A.C., Bargoed, who was present, highly commended the singing of the choir, and the conductor. Mr. John Jones. The ser- vices of Mr. George Mellon and Mr. Geo. Goldstone were also acknowledged, and a vote of thanks to all the ladies who had so kindly served at the tables and to the conductor concluded one of the most successful anniversaries.
Ystrad. The Sunday School anniversary of the English Baptist cause at Ystrad was held on Sunday last, when three excellent services were given, consisting of solos, recitations, etc. The services were pre- sided over by the following -—Morning Mr. W. H. Ashton (Ystrad); afternoon Mr. James Pearce (Ystrad); evening, Mr. W. Davies, the Sunday School superintendent. The singing was con- ducted by Mr. Idris Evans, and the choir was accompanied by Mr. Haydn Lawry. On Monday the annual outing took place, an enjoyable day being spent on the sands at Aberavon. --+-- Having undergone a thorough renova- tion, Bethel (C'.M.) Chapel was re-opened on Sunday last. The renovation was successfully carried out under the super- vision of Mr. W. D. Morgan, architect, Tori Pentre. The annual Sunday School outing took place on Saturday, the chosen rendezvous being Barry Island. At the usual monthly children's ser- vice, held at Bodringallt Chapel on Sunday, certificates and prizes were pre- sented to the members of the Sunday School who had been successful at the recent examination of the Welsh Con- gregationaliists." Bodringallt scholars were again very successful this year, for, in addition to the five prizes gained (two of which were first prizes). 153 certifi- cates were distributed among the various classes. Mr. Myrddin T. Evans received a gold medal, being first in all Wales in addition to a book prize value 15s. His brother, Mr. E. J. Evans, also came first in his class, and gained the Union's first prize, whilst Mr. Thomas B. Lewis captured 2nd prize, and not-h received many valuable books.

Ferndale. The funeral took place on Thursday of Richard Hughes, who was killed at No. 4 Colliery, Ferndale, on the previous Saturday. It was of a semi-military character. The body was conveyed to the Ferndale Cemetery upon the hose- tender of the Portli Fire Brigade. The coffin, upon which was placed deceased's helmet and bugle, was covered with wreaths. Mr. Hughes had a wide circle of friends, and was very popular. He was born at Llandudno 32 years ago, and saw service as a bugler in the South African War. He belonged to the Welsh Fusiliers, and was until his death bugler to the Ferndale Fire Brigade. The order of the funeral was as follows:—The Rev. 33. F. Wilson, U.S.A., the renowned Socialist orator (deceased was a ardent Socialist and a member of the St. John Ambulance Brigade), Ferndale, Tony- Socialist and a member of the St. John Ambulance Brigade), Ferndale, Tony- pandy, Pentre, and Porth Fire Bri- gades, Ferndale, Manly and TylorstoMn St. John Ambulance Brigades, followed by the members of the local branch of the Independent Labour Party, and re- presentatives of the No. 1 Lodge of the Bristol, West of England, and South Wales Operative Trade and Provident j Society. The funeral ceremony was con- ducted by the Rev. B. F. Wilson. AVide- spread sympathy is felt for the family and relatives of deceased. Master D. J. Maidment, who was top on the list for the Ferndale .Secondary School, passed the examination for the College of Preceptors. with honours. A brilliant career is predicted for this promising pupil. We wish him every success. Post Free, a marvel of accurate time- keeping Gent's American Lever Watch, Stem Wind, Stem Set and fully warranted, 3/1L Money will be returned in full if not satisfied.

Pontygwaith. Saint Mary Magdalene Sunday School journeyed to Creigiaui on Monday, and spent a most enjoyable day. Next Tuesday, the Fonvard Movement take their annual outing to Aberavon. The visit of the Princess Louise to the Rhondda was celebrated at the Pontv- gwaith Council Schools by a spread and sports on Friday last. Five guineas were contributed towards the treat by the 1Vattstown and Stanleytown Con- servative Club, £3 by the Tylorstown Workmen's Club, £ 1 Is. each by Coun- cillor Smith and Mr. G. Davies, Penrhys Hotel, and £ 1 by Dr. Morris. The youngsters will remember for many years to come the notable visit of H.R.H. to the Rhondda. Mr. E.

Sherwood. Mr. T. L. Thomas, who is at present home on a visit after five years spent in various parts of America., writes us an interesting letter recounting his experi- ences in the land of the Stars and Stripes. Mr. Thomas sailed from Liverpool in 1904, and after landing in New York, proceeded to Nanticoke, Pa., and thence to Carbon- dale, where lie followed his occupation as carpenter. Later, he removed to Denver, ■Colorado, where he married. After remaining here for sonie time, he pro- ceeded to Crystal, situated about 300 miles from Denver, and in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. We will give the rest of the story in his own M ords —" I thought this an excellent place to do some studying, as there were no places of amusement and nowhere to go in the evenings. I wrote a letter to the Annour Institute of Technology in Chicago, ask- ing them what the requirements were to enter their College of Engineering in a course of Architecture. I was in the building trade, and thought that the best course to take. The-, sent back and told me that I must know the folloin-iiio- sub- jects:-Ei-iglisli, Arithmetic. Elementary Algebra, Plane Geometry, and Mechanical Drawing. I wrote back and told them that I would take a course with the American School of Correspondence in Mechanical Drawing, which would include the above subjects. I stayed in Crystal about eighteen months and I took the course witli the Correspondence School. I worked hard, studying all the spare time I had. My ii-ifelc, home is in Chicago, and after I thought I knew enough to enter college, we moved to Chicago in February, 1908. I entered college last September as, a freshman, and at the end of the last term, which ended on May 28th, I am pleased to say that I passed all the examinations required of an architectural student in his freshman year. I intend to go another two years if all is well. I would like to go for the four years and get my B.S. degree, but circumstances won't permit; but if I get three years in the Armour Institute of Technology in Architecture, I shall be well repaid for my pains." It is comfort- ing to know that Rhondda boys are forging ahead even under such strenuous conditions as obtain in the States. Mr. Thomas' efforts furnish a valuable lesson for all young men who would utilise their time and talents to the best ends.
