Nantymoel. Harvest Festival.—Large congregations assembled at St. David's Church on Sun- day and Monday night, when services we're held to return thanks for the in- gathering of the harvest. Holy Com- munion was administered at 8 and 11 .a.m. on Sunday. The special preachers for the occasion were the Rev. T. J. Richards, Canton, Cardiff, and the Rev. L. E. Richardson, vicar of St. Donat's, Llantwit Major. The singing was a pleasing feature of the services, and the choir (under the able leadership of Mr. Robert King) gave an excellent rendering of the anthem, When thou hast in thy corn." Mr. Wm. Caple ably presided at the organ. The offertories taken up were in aid of the Additional Curates' Fund. Benefit Concert.—Under the auspices of the various churches of Nantymoel, a grand concert was held in the Workmen's Hall on Wednesday last by an united choir, numbering 150 voices, assisted by several local artistes. The proceeds, which amounted to over E-50, were in aid of Mr. Thomas Jones, Vale View, who, through illness, has for months been un- able to follow his employment, and has a heavy family of eight motherless chil- dren. I.L.P. Social.—On Saturday last, the Ogmore Valley Branch of the I.L.P. held a very successful social in the Nantymoel Workmen's Hall. The hall had been beaur tifully decorated for the occasion under the supervision of Mr. Thomas Hyde, who has made himself quite a reputation as decorator by the pretty and effective designs that were displayed in different parts of the hall. The whole represented one grand transformation scene, com- mencing with mottoes of the party worked in ivy and flowers, banners bearing such inscriptions as Socialism the only hope of the Workers," "Socialism demands justice to all classes," the whole ending up with a magnificent banner. In the centre was a torch, lit, and round it the words Socialisiu the light of the world." The catering was done by Mr. W. Dyas, on behalf of the Nantymoel Co-operative Society. About 500 persons sat down to a very appetising display of all kinds of English and Continental pastry. Most of the fancy pastry had the different mottoes of the party worked 'on in sugar. Mr. Capel's Band played for the dancing, and Messrs. Dyas and Idris Davies acted as M.G.'s. The following rendered songs and recitations — Mioses Annie Williams, Lizzie Williams, Hannah Williams (Bryn- menyn), and Messrs. Abner Morgan and Williams (Pontycymmer). Great praise is due to Mr. Rees Evans, the secretary of the Society Committee, for organising the finest social held at Nantymoel under the auspices of the I.L.P. The tables were very prettily decorated and waited upon by the following ladies, whose geniality greatly added to the pleasure of the evening: -Mrs. Davies, Mrs. Chown, Mrs. Rees, Mrs. Ley, Mrs. Hughes, Mrs. Williams, Mrs. Oliver, Mrs. Harris, Miss Hughes. Miss Davies, Miss Boobyer, and Miss Alice Davies. Big Meetings.—The half-yearly preach- ing services in connection with Dinam (Welsh C.M.) Church were held on Sun- day and Monday last, the pulpit being: occupied by the Rev. Daniel Davies, Pentre, and the Rev. J. T. Davies, Dinam's worthy pastor. The series of meetings were largely attended and the preaching; was much appreciated. The singing was ably conducted by Mr. John Jones, whilst Miss M. J. Phillips presided at the organ.
