An encore was demanded, and he responded with "Mary" (Richardson). Song, Twickenham Ferry" UVlarzial), Miss 0. Price.

The first of a series of tsixi lectures was delivered on Thursday evening at Penuel (C.M.) chapel, under the auspices of the Ferndale Free Church Council. The lec- turer was the Rev. G. Keri Evans, M.A., Carmarthen, who dealt with The Philo- sophy of the New Theology." The chair was taken by Mr. M. Morris (builder). The Chairman said that the aim of the Free Church Council in having: these lec- ture-s was to educate and elevate the young people of the various churches; to check gambling and other great evils, which threatened to destroy the morality of the young people of the Rhondda; and to keep religion free of politics. Prof. Evans divided his lecture into three parts 7-" God and Man," "Free Will," and 'Sin." He attacked the Rev. R. J. Campbell's theology on the ground that It was not true philosophy. He said that every true 'philosopher took facts first, then formed his theory in accordance with those facts. Mr. Campbell, he remarked. had made the same mistake as many ( others—formed his theory first, and tried to make the facts accord with his theory, and if they did not, so much the worse I for the facts. Mr. Evans said that the I'eason that Mr. Campbell had so many followers was that a dog awake is better than a lion asleep." What we want, said he, is to wake the lion, then we shall hear no more about the dog. The lec- ture was very much appreciated, and Mr. Evallswas heartily applauded at its con- clusion. Mardy.
