Pent re. At the Wesleyan Chapel on Friday evening, a very interesting lecture was given by the Rev. A. J. Summerhill, Uindhead, Surrey, on "Home Missions." The Revs. W. J. Britton and A. Rose also ) spoke. On Sunday, there were special sermons on the same subject. At Moriah Chapel on Sunday, a special service in aid of the African Mission School at Colwyn Bay, North Wales, was held. The principal of the school, the Rev. W. Hughes, explained the object of the school, and showed what it had already accomplished in the way of pre- paring natives of Africa, for the Christian Kiinistry and for missionary work. At the Assembly Rooms on Tuesday evening, a special free lecture was delivered by Mr. Henry Davies, County ^Mining Director. Mr. W. D. Wight, M.E., Ystrad, presided. Mr. Davies spoke for nearly two hours on Colliery Accidents," and showed various types of apparatus for use in mines after explo- sions, &c. The slides shown werf very instructive and interesting. In con- clusion, Mr. Davies showed a few lantern slides illustrative of the disaster at Tynewydd Colliery many years ago. The Mature of the accident and the manner of rescuing the entombed men were care- fully explained. In proposing a vote of thanks to the lecturer, the Chairman said he felt rather disappointed that so many Evening Classes had been commenced in successive years and closed after a short period. He thought that workmen in general did not realise the immense bene- fit to be obtained by attendance at the classes, especially the lessons in mining, delivered by practical and well qualified men. He hoped the lecture would be the Stteans of instilling into the minds of | many men in the audience the import- j110? and inestimable benefits to be derived from the evening classes. The ?<>te of thanks was ably seconded by Mr. J^aniel Thomas, JVt.EL, Ton, probably the ^ldest living colliery manager in the -"Rhondda Valley. A vote of thanks to the "chairman was also heartily accorded. officials of Messrs. Cory's collieries it +v?e Rhondda had their annual dinner the Pentre Hotel on Saturday evening. ^»out fifty persons sat down to the Jj^ptuoris courses prepared by Mr. and «irs. Miles, and an enjoyable evening was aPent.

Cwmparc. successful series of nerform- %r,lWerei held at the Park Hall on Wt yi' Monday and Tuesday evenings auspices of the Soar 's Society. Preparations n ve^r zealously carried out for in 1^onJ?s ^nder the directions of A. Meredith (Park* Schools), Mr.' Haydn Evans and Mr. J. T. Jones, and the very successful issue of their joint labours is a matter of congratulation for all concerned. The programme was con- tributed to by a well-trained body of girl singers (trained by Miss Meredith), a patrol of Boy Scoute (trained by Mr. Haydn Evans), and a "dramatic" com- pany of adults, who gave a very fine representation in full character of a short Welsh scriptural drama, Jeptha a'i Ferch." In detail the programme was as follows:—"Welcome Song," sung by seven little maidens prettily dressed, who formed the word "Welcome" with big card-letters; Tramp Scene," in which Mr. Harry Jones personated a most repellent type. of the great unwashed," and whose designs on the dainties carried through a wood-scene by winsome Miss Mec. Jones were* vigorously and effec- tually frustrated by a patrol of Boy Scouts: "Screen" chorus, a tasteful display" song by the full chorus; "Granny," a la Mr. Haydn Evans, returning laden with good things from the fair and being tumultuously besieged ,a by her little boys and girls; Camp Scene," very effectively worked up. The Boy Scouts camping beside running brook I in woodland glade, and enjoying an al- fresco meal, with herring as the prin- cipal course. Master Haydn Jenkins' fresh young voice contributing, a solo, with Scouts joining in chorus, was one of the best features of the evening. Scouts Drill was done with pleasing precision and accuracy. Rain Song," this was an action bv tiny little mites which went with a song. The motions, &c., to signify rain, hail, sunshine, rain- bow and snow were most pleasingly done; Gipsies," in true Romany costume, sang -1-ettily, and incidentally sold lace, pegs, &c., and told the most astonish- ing fortunes; indian club 12 exercises (Boy Scouts again), done with admirable regard to time and rhythm, Mr. Haydn Evans really "done proud"- "Fairies" (Queen, Miss Phoebe Jones). Quite a vision to behold. The marvellous wands and dresses quite worthy of pantomime. The drama to conclude comprised the following characters —" J eptha, King of Israel," Mr. J. G. Jones; Miriam (his daughter), Mrs. E. 0. Evans, and a num- ber of Israelitish men and maidens in attendance. The acting was good and the dresses correct although the drama suffered from brevity. The elocution of the principals was very praiseworthy, and their acting was natural and effective. The Cwmparc Orchestra (conductor, Mr. Rhys Davies) did excellent work through- out and was a decided acquisition. The chairmen were-on Saturday, Mr. W. F. Williams, M.E. on Monday, Rev. T. L. Davies. The secretaries were Messrs. Haydn Evans and T. J. Jenkins; trea- surer, Mr. T. L. Williams. Master Brinley Jones accompanied on the piano in good style. A most enjoyable presentation meeting was held at Salem Chapel on Tuesday evening, when the Rev. James Davies was the "hero" of the evening. Mr. Davies recently reconsidered favourably his intention of seeking fresh woods and pastures new," and the church deter- mined to "honour" him in token of their gratification. There was a large gathering of people, and the. Rev. Wm. Morris (Noddfa), Treorchy, made a most acceptable chairman. Songs and recita- tions during the evening were rendered. by Miss Martha Morgan, Miss, Rebecca Morgan, Mr. J. Davies, Mr. Tom Morgan and Mr. Tom Lewis. The Cwmparc Orchestra rendered selections. The I" gifts," which took the form' of a num- ber of handsome theological volumes and a purse of gold, were formally presented by Mr. Thomas Owen, the oldest mem- ber," in a most feeling speech. Mr. Evan Middleton, M.E., on behalf of the church, spoke eloquently, and the Rev. W. Lewis (Park) also gave a most pleasing address. The Rev. James Davies responded in felicitous terms. It is always pleasing! to record the pro- gress of youthful ambitions, and some recent promotions" deserve a passing note. Mr. John Evans, recently a Ruskin scholar and a most successful speaker on sociological matters, has cap- tured an important post at Maesteg as miners' agent, heading the ballot, which elected him by a triumphant majority, in spite of opposition by a local man. Mr. Evans has the ability and desire to make much progress, and we heartily wish him success in his new sphere of labour. Mr. Richard D. Evans, following in his bro- ther's footstepsi, has secured an appoint- ment as under-manager in a colliery at Abercanaid. Mr. Evans is a young man who only recently commenced an earnest study of the art of mining, and he has already secured his First Class" mining" certificate. With his foot on the ladder, he is sure to climb steadily to the top.

On Thursday and Saturday evenings last, performances of a beautiful operetta, entitled Snow White," were given by the Carmel (E.B.) Children's Choir, under the able conductorship of Mr. Tom Thomas. The principals were Miss Polly Thomas, Madam Clayton-Jones, Mr. Emrys Davies, all of Mardy; and Mr. Daniels, of Penygraig. Miss Thomas and Madam Clayton-Jones rendered their solos in a manner not likely soon to be forgotten by those who had the. pleasure of hearing them, and earned high encomiums from Mardy" music-lovers. The scenery in the second act was most real- istic, live rabbits sporting themselves on the stage; while the third act, showing the bedchamber where Snow White (Miss Polly Thomas) lay dying, was so pathetic, that many in the large audi- ences were moved to tears; and again, the rapturous joy of the dwarfs, on learn- ing that Snow White." did not die after partaking of the, poisoned apple, was a piece of acting rarely seen in a children's choir; while the "Chief Dwarf (Mr. J. James) will long be re- membered for his inimitable display of innocent fun. The orchestra, presided over by Messrs. T'al. E. Richards and Gwilym Lewis, delighted the audiences with their exquisite renderings of the music. The singing of the choir was delightful, and the happy results achieved are the fruits of careful and patient train- ing, and Mr. Tom Thomas is to be heartily congratulated on its successful con- clusion. It is undoubtedly the desire of many people in Mardy that Mr. Thomas should continue in his good work. The scenery was arranged under the super- vision of Mr. Gomer Evans, whose ener- getic efforts were well rewarded by the applause the beautiful scenes elicited, and the success of the performances.

Jonathan Jones, TJri Jones, J. Shelby, G. Jones (Treorchy), and Miss L. Williams (Gelli); and a pianoforte solo by Miss E. Holmes (Ton). The accompanists, Miss M. Clements (Ton) and Mr. J. Pugh (Tre- orchy), also deserve credtit for their material assistance in making the musical portion of the evening such a decided success. Games occupied the intervals between the songs, and were, much en- joyed by all present.
Ystrad-Rhondda. A presentation meeting was held at Gelligaled Hotel on Saturday evening, the 19th inst., in connection with the Bud of Rhondda" Friendly Society, Ystrad-Rhondda, when Mr. Wm.

J. Williams (pastor) presided. United prayer meetings are held at Bethlehem (C.M.) Chapel this week by the Free Churches of the district. Work is becoming aimcertain at the Abergorchy Colliery, owing to shortage of trucks. The heavy rains and gales of Saturday and Sunday affected praetierally the whole of Treorchy. That historic street near the Red Cow Hotel was again under watsr to a depth of over a yard, and pedestrian and vehicular traffic was diverted through Regent Street. The Oardiff Arms Square, where two streams converged from Bute Street and Ceme- tery Road, was also under water, whilst a portion of Ynyswen Road was on Sun- day impassable. A meeting of the G.E. Temperance Society was held at St. Tyfodwg on Friday evening, Mr. Davys-Thorn a..s pre- siding. A very suggestive paper on Should women be admitted to the tem- perance work? was read by Mr. David J.
