Passing Moments. Seldom, if ever,, has a Welsh choir received such a demonstration of public favour as was accorded the Treorchy Royal Welsh Male Choir on their return from the Cblonies on Saturday last. It was something: more than a triumphal procession it was an epoch in the musical history of Wales. Welsh choirs have ere now returned from foreign climes with a more or less flattering series of triumphs inscribed on their records, but their home- coming was never marked with the enthu- siasm and acclamation that distinguished Saturday's demonstration. The reason for this is two-fold. Saturday's proceed- ings not only signalised the welcome return of a choir after a protracted tour of unparalleled triumphs, but also testi- fied to the seal which the Welsh nation sets upon character and clean living. This was the distinctive note that was sounded in all the speeches in the memorable gathering at Noddfa. Bright as are the musical triumphs of Mr. Thomas' organ- isation, they were regarded as of secon- dary importance as compared with the high reputation for sobriety and morality which the choir sustained during its pro- gress through the domains across the sea. And this, we believe, was the right note. Rightly or wrongly, the Welshman has oftentimes been looked upon by people of other lands as lacking in the distinctive qualities-tnat mane up a great and sober 11 nation. The tour of the Treorchy boys- has, therefore, done much in dispelling this, perhaps erroneous, impression. As Dr. Morris so fittingly declared, they went forth with the fate of .the Welsh nation in their hands, and the reception accorded them everywhere proves beyond dispute that the responsibility was honourably discharged. It matters not what the attainments of a body of men, more than an individual, may" be, it is character that is generally the touchstone of public favour. The Royal Choir, in this respect, have done a noble service for Wales, and we believe that it was the recognition of this service that accounted for the fervour of Saturday's rejoicings. It was the tour de force, "i of the man, not the singer. Another fact with which we have been long familiar, but which has been some- what emphasised by the experience of the Royal Choir during their tour, is the position to which the Welshman has attained in the social scale of other coun- tries. Time was, and that not so very long ago, when, in the picturesque, if utilitarian, phraseology of Mr. Tom John, the Scotchman was generally found nearest the jam-pot." Of late years, however, the Welshman has been gradually assert- ing himself, and among the many interest- ing recollections of his tour, Mr. Thomas recalls with justifiable pride that many of the most important public offices in the Colonial cities: of the Empire were filled by men whose Cymric associations and aspirations were. amply evidenced by the warmth of their welcome to the choristers. The Welshman's love of the homeland has been generally regarded by critics of superior attainmantas, as con- stituting a serious handicap to his work as a coloniser, but a fact that is often lost sight of is that he is also one of the most adaptable of men, and can adapt himself to the conditions of his adopted country with as much ease as his Scotch or English brother, always providing, of course, that he shall have his Eisteddfod and little Bethel.

A New Discovery. The new medical discovery, Cadum, for the treatment of scalp and skin troubles is especially successful in cases of eczema, psoriasis, ringworm, scabs, sores, scaly skin, etc. It stops the terrible itching at once, and begins the healing; process with the first application. Cadum .is an anti- septic that is applied externally, and destroys disease-producing germs, allays inflammation, and exerts a wonderful soothing and healing influence on the skin tissues, a complete cure being often effected in two or three weeks. Minor skin troubles, such as rash, pimples, blotches, redness, roughness, chafings, prickly heat, etc., are often cured by an overnight application. 6d. and Is. a box, all chemists.
Rifle Range Opened at Pentre. A new service and miniature rifle club has been formed at Pentre, Rhondda, to which several landed proprietors in the district and local gentlemen have sub- scribed and become vice-presidents, and many tradesmen and working men have become members, the aggregate number- ing 43 up to the present. A service rifle target and ranges with targets at 25, 50, 100 and 200 yards: respectively have been constructed in a most picturesque and accessible position at the rear of Pentre House. The ranges have been recently inspected by two Government inspectors, who expressed their admiration of their situation and their absolute safety. The ranges were formally opened 011" Thurs- day by Mr. D. Llewellyn Treharne, the captain, who recorded a bull. Mr. Tre- harne stated that an early endeavour will be made to secure a range of 700 and 800 yards) in the immediate neighbourhood. Great enthusiasm was displayed by the members present, and most sanguine hopesi are entertained that the member- ship of the club will amount to 100 mem- bers before the end of the year. The generosity of Mr. Treharne is appreciated by the club by allowing the ranges to be erected on hisi grounds free of expense. At the conclusion of the ceremony all pre- sent were invited to partake of refresh- ments on the lawn at Pentre House.

Local Wedding. EiDWARDS-JONES. A wedding in which considerable in- terest was centred was solemnised at Pontypridd on Monday last, the contract- ing parties being Mr. Buckley Edwards, Treorchy (superintendent of the London Edinburgh and Glasgow Assurance Com- pany), and Miss Emma Jones, Hendrewen Hotel, Blaenycwm (daughter of the late Mr. Wm. Jones, butcher, Cymnier, Porth). The bride was given away by Mr. Evan Thomas, Hendrewen Hotel Blaenycwm (brother-in-law of bride). The bridesmaids were Miss Edwards, Treorchy (sister of bridegroom), Mrs. Lanyon, Treorchy Hotel, Treorchy (sister of bride), Miss Carrie Jones, Stationers' Hall, Treher- bert, and Miss James, Dunraven Shop, Treherbert. The duties of best man were ably performed by Mr. Edwards, Ponty- pridd (Inspector of the London, Edin- burgh and Glasgow Assurance Company of Rhondda, district). The bride was charmingly attired in nale blue, and wore a pale blue picture hat trimmed with black feathers. Miss Edwards, Regent Street, Treorchy (sister of bridegroom), was dressed in wine colour costume, Miss Jones in cornflour blue-, Mrs. Lanyon (sister of bride) in blue and cream, and Miss James in pale blue, and wore large picture hats to match. The wedding breakfast was served at the Hendrewen Hotel, Blaenycwm (the residence of the bride's sister), where a large number of guests sat down. After the ceremony, Mr. and Mrs. Edwardsi left amidst showers of confetti for Cardiff, en route to Lon- don, where the honeymoon is being spent. The breakfast caterers were Messrs. Stevens, of Cardiff, while the flowers were supplied by Case Brothers, florists, Car- diff.
Local Mining Students' Success Local aspirants for mining honours scored excellently at the recent Colliery Managers' Examination held at Newport last week. The following; successes in the First Class Examination are recorded:- Mr. Isaac Lewis, Dwrpamal1; Mr. Edmund Thomas, Apple T'ree, Dinas; Mr. John Isaac, Tabernacle Chapel House, Fern- dale; Mr. John Lloyd, Graig; Terrace, Bedlinog. All are students of Mr. Win. Thomas, M.E., of the Cambrian Mining School, Porth.
foreign lands are as sturdy a lot as any of the bold buccaneerSI of Queen Bess's days. He possesses the requisite qualities of courage and self-confidence, and this, coupled with a progressive education, has probably contributed to his material advancement in those distant lands. The same, spirit of self-reliance and determina- tion that has placed a young Welsh orphan lad in charge of the finances of the greatest Empire in the world, has also its counterpart in lands where the Welsh accent is an unknown quantity. Mr. Wight's protest at the last District -Council meeting against the dilatoriness of those responsible for the arrangements in connection with the "Evening Schools was very timely and well-deserved. A meeting of the Evening Schools Commit- tee was held at Pentre on Wednesday afternoon last, and although belated, the Winter Classes will soon be set going. This, however, does not invalidate the point of Mr. Wight's criticism, and we fully concur with him that the schoois should be thrown open at the begumina of September. The root of the evil lies undoubtedly in the fact that the administration of the Evening Schools lies with the County Council, and the whole thing has become so unwieldy that its efficiency is considerably impaired. Even in the matter of salaries paid to Evening School teachers there are loud cries of complaints, many teachers having not been paid their salaries for a past session at the beginning of a new session's work. In our opinion, the only remedy can be the absolute delegation of the County Council's powers in the adminis- tration of Evening and Secondary Schools to the local body. The Rhondda Council have agitated long enough in the matter. Home Rule in education is as necessary as in other departments of public ad- ministration. The Rhondda is allowed to manage its own sewage; why not its own advanced education? (Since the aoove comments reached us we find that at Tuesday's meeting of the Glamorgan Education Committee, a motion was carried to delegate the Com- mittee's powers in relation to Evening and Technical Classes in the Rhondda to the Rhondda District Council. A full report of the Committee's recommen- dations will be found in another column. I I-Ed., "R.L."). f The controversy about the discovery of the North Pole is still raging. It has become a kind of dance round the pole business. Personally, we are not con- cerned very much as to which of the two explorers the glory is due. It has not cost us a wink less sleep, nor have we been much disturbed as to whether the land round the Pole may be classed as British territory. The atmosphere is a bit too chilly for us. Whatever may be claimed for the two explorers, we can only express a fear that, judging from newspaper reports, their respective sup- porters in America have travelled a long way to that state which is generally described as being "up the pole." "Object" drawing has brought a new anxiety into the schools. In certain dis- tricts, says the Manchester Guardian," youngsters may be seen moving school- ward with hatchets., carvers, hammers, chisels, &c., as material for their drawing- lessons.
