The tables were very' prettily laid, and the whole atmosphere imparted a feeling of comfort and enjoy- ment.

Price, of 2, Cross Street, Porth, which took place on Wed- nesday afternoon last, after a long and painful illness.

Nantymoel. Church Socialist League.—A branch of the above League has now been formed at Nantymoel, and Mr. G. H. Bibbings, B.A., of Leicester, was the first to address a public meeting under its auspices on Thursday, the 4th inst. Mr. W. Dyas presided, and referred to remarks made by the Rev. David Davies. of Penarth, who recently spoke under the auspices of the Liberal and Labour Party at the Workmen's Hall. Mr. Davies said that the electors of Mid-Glamorgan should support Sir S. T. Evans because he was a Welshman, and no one could under- stand the aspirations of Welshmen like a Welshman. Mr. Dyas said that the Solicitor-General had nothing to recom- mend him at the coming General Elec- tion. But," added the speaker, "accept- ing the logic of Mr. Davies' remarks, that no one could represent a class of people like one of that class, we must remember that Mid-Glamorgan was a mining con- j stituency, and most of the electors were miners; therefore, no one could under- stand the aspiration of miners or repre- sent them like a miners' agent (cheers). Mr. Bibbings followed and gave an in- spiring address. Hall Committee.—The first meeting of the recently elected Hall Council was held on Wednesday of last week at the Hall Committee Room. The following were chosen to act as officials for the forth- coming year:—Chairman, Dr. D. J. Thomas, J.P.; vice-chairman, Mr. T. J. Job: secretary, Mr. John Rees; trea- surer, Mr. John Owen, M.E., Ocean Col- liery deputy treasurer, Mr. John E. Price (clerk), Ocean Colliery; and Messrs. W. Roberts and John D. Morris, auditors. Billiard, Library, and Build- ing Sub-Committees were elected, each committee comprising of seven members. Billiard Match.—Under the auspices of the Mid-Glamorgan Workmen's Institutes Billiard League, Nantymoel played Ponty- cymmer in a League match at the Insti- tute on Saturday last. A very keen and evenly contested game resulted in a vic- tory for Nantymoel by 54. The scores were: —Nantymoel: Dd. Owen (capt.), 200; W. Rogers, 150; Evan Williams, 200; George Lloyd, 200; John Isaac, 200; John Roberts, 147; Tan John, 200 Sid Stevens, 193-total, 1,490. Pontv- cymmer: Tal Jones (capt.), 167; C. S. Hill, 200; Eli Davies, 182; Chris. Harries. 182; Eynon Rosser, 145; Tom Lewis, 200; D. J. Rees, 160; J. Lewis, 200-total, 1,436. Liberal-Labour AssocIation-The monthly meeting of the Nantymoel Liberal-Labour Association was held at the Committee Room, Workmen's Hall, on Friday even- ing of last week. Mr; Job Baker (presi- dent of the Association) occupied the chair, and there was a good muster of members. The Rev. H. R. Byatt read an excellent and admirably conceived paper on Stars of the Liberal Firma- ment." The rev. gentleman selected as stars Cobden, Bright, Gladstone, Banner- man, Asquith, and Lloyd George, and his graphic recitals of the characteristics of each charmed his auditors in a high degree. In the subsequent discussion, Mr. W. J. Harries, Rev. M. J. Mills, Councillor Evan Griffiths, Rev. J. T. Davies and the president referred in eulogistic terms to Mr. Byatt's paper, and expressed their deep gratitude to him for such an able review. All the speakers referred with regret to Mr. Byatt's im- pending departure for Dalston London, where all united in wishing that God's richest blessings would attend his labours in his new sphere. On the motion of Mr. Lewis Griffiths, seconded by Mr. T. Jacob Jones, B.A., supported by the secretary and president, a most cordial and hearty vote of thanks was accorded the rev. gentleman for his eminent services. Fire Outbreak.—What might have proved a serious conflagration had it not been detected in time by the promptitude of the headmaster-Mr. James Jones— occurred at the Boys' Council School, Nantymoel, on Saturday evening last. Dense volumes of smoke were observed issuing from the main room, and after admission had been gained by Mr. Jones and Mr. Tom Lloyd (engineer, Ocean Col- liery), who was called in by Mr. Jones from the street, it was found that through some cause the woodwork around the fireplace had ignited and would have developed soon into a serious fire. Mr. Jones, whose residence adjoins the schools, with Mr. Lloyd, took prompt action, and after a quarter of an, hour's work suc- ceeded in putting the fire out. The schools-boys' and girls'—are a large block, and are situated in a. populous centre. The Urban Council are just now establishing local fire brigades in the different localities in their area.

Deceased leaves a widow and six children to mourn his loss, and his untimely death is all the more pathetic inasmuch as deceased had worked very little during the last five years owing to ill-health.

Marvellous Cures at Ystrad. At the invitation of Prof. Vero, the Rhondda herbalist and electro medical specialist, 108, William Street, Ystrad, a Leader Pressman called at the estab- lishment of Mr. George Player, Llwyny- pia, on Monday last to verify the genuine- ness of his cure by Prof. Vero. Mr. Player was extremely grateful, and the following is his testimonial to Prof. Vero's hedical skill: — General Stores, Tyntyla Road, Llwynypia, "Nov. 15th, 1909. To Prof. Vero. Dear Sir,—Allow me to thank you for the great relief and wonderful cure you have given me. You know to what ex- tent I have suffered, extending over many years. I had terrible pains in my hips and across the small of my back. I could not work or even dress myself, but after only a fortnight's treatment from you I was able to resume my work (builder, &c.). I must also thank you for curing my adopted child of a tumour as large as a hen's egg.-Yours grratefully, "GEORGE PLAYER. "Witness—(Mrs.) Marion Player." The testimony above is strictly genuine, as anyone may prove by calling at the above address. Prof. Vero gives water readings and herbal medicine from 2s., and his medical laboratory is close to Sandy Bank, Ystrad. 5108
lower contingents marched up, headed by the Lewis Merthyr Band, to be met by the first three named brigades, headed by the Ynyshir Brass Band, After parading the streets of Ynyshir, the whole number entered St. Anne's Parish Church, where the Rev. S. Jones (vicar) preached a special sermon. Despite the very in- clement weather, a good muster was made. A Correction.—In the report of the recent Ynyshir Eisteddfod that appeared in these columns, an error inadvertently crept in. It appears that the cup given to the successful male voice party was the gift of Mr. John Thomas, M.E. (Fern- bank), and not of Mr. W. J. Thomas, J.P. (Brynawel), as stated.
