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
