Tonyrefail. A memorial service was held at St. David's Church on Friday last simul- taneously with the interment of the remains of King Edward.

Evans, J.P., D.C., Levi Morgan (chairman of the Chamber of Trade), several of the local tradesmen and the police officers. On Friday last, the remains of the late Mr. Charley King, of Station Road, Ton- yrefail, who passed away very suddenly, were laid to rest at Castellau. Deceased was well known locally, having resided in the district for many years. The Rev. R. Morgan officiated at the house and graveside.

Cwmparc. Last Friday—Black Friday as it was generally known throughout the countrv- was spent in a fitting manner at Cwm- parc, every heart, apparently, being attuned to the lamentation which pre- vailed in the land. Nearly all without exception wore some emblem of mourning, and even Nature seemed to lend a dignity to the Sabbath stillness of the day, for heavy thunderclouds overhung the sur- rounding hills, the landscape being wrapped in a subdued loom. The clouds lifted at noon and bright sunshine reigned as if in omen of golden days to come. A memorial service was conducted at St. George's Church by the Rev. T. Tissington, and it was well attended, and a prayer meeting was held at Park (C.M.) Chapel, presided over by the Rev. Wm. Lewis, pastor. Local astronmers in embryo have been keeping an active look-out for Halley's Comet, and one elderly gentleman who has hitherto enjoyed a refutation for veracity, declares he saw it with the naked eye gambolling giddily in the firmament towards the far-away north- west. A local "person in authority" testifies to its appearance in quite another direction, and, moreover, will indulge any willing listener with a description of its fearsome- tail." It is only too palpable, however, that, like the novelist's, it is a tale" that comes out of his own head. The report that a prominent Cwmparc citizen had shuffled off the mortal coil during a Whitsun holiday. tour was, as in the case of the late Mark Twain, grossly exaggerated. In fact, the victim of the rumour arrived home in a state of almost aggressive healthiness, making even the suggestion of kicking the bucket a most remote one. Indeed, it was with extreme difficulty he could turn a little "pail"! That hardy old annual, "Treorchy Fair, has once. again, added temporarily to the gaiety of the Rhondda, and although, like Noah's dove. it is each suc- cessive year finding a difficulty in establ- ishing a resting place, it has this year, perforce, descended upon Treherbert, its perforce, descended upon Treherbert, its popularity shows not the slightest sign of waning. Cwmparo folks' affection for it will apparently never fade, for matron ,t, and maid, man and boy have enjoyed its pleasures with unlimited zest and aban- don. They have whirled on the whirlabouts to their hearts' content, they have gyrated giddily down the sinuous ly path of the Chinese tower, they have galloped on little horses with high- sounding names, and some of our boys have returned from visits to the boxing booths with picturesquely painted optics. What ho! for the giddy fun of the fair! Miss Moggie Davies, a. popular lady preacher from North Wales, has been holding evangelistic meetings at Salem (W.B.) during the first part of the week, but attracted only small congregations. It may interest local Soccer folk to know that Ianto" Jones, Cwmparc's quondam centre forward, visited the fair on Monday, and looks in the pink of condition. Chelsea has put him through a course of up-to-date training, for he has not an ounce of superfluous flesh. It will gratify his admirers to know that he has re-signed for Chelsea on good terms, and he hopes to score a lot of goals for his club in the League (Second Division) tourney next year.

."1. ——-■ Pentre. Work has been resumed at the Pentre Colliery, but a large number of falls has hindered full working arrangements being restored, and many of the workmen are only employed on half-time as yet. The men complain that the horses brought to bank during the strike have not all been brought back, but this is a matter that will very probably be soon set right. A satisfactory settlement is earnestly hoped and prayed for in the locality.

Treorchy. The annual general meeting of the Treorchy Old Boys R.F.C. was held at. the headquarters, the Lion Hotel, on Tuesday evening, Mr. Will Waite presid- ing over a good gathering. The chief business was the adoption of the balance sheet, showing receipts of E20 8s. 6d., and expenditure L20 Is. 2d., leaving a balance to the good of 7s. 4d. Mr. Wm. Waite was re-elected chairman; Mr. Alt. Hopkins, vice-chairman; Mr. J. "75. Mill- ward, treasurer; and Mr. D. J. Lewis, general secretary. The report for the year ended Decem- ber 31st of the Cwmparc and Treorchy Nursing Association is to hand. The total receipts were L347 Os. 6d., the pro- ceeds of the door-boys' concerts amount- ing to £ 58 8s. 6d., whilst the workmen of the Park and Dare Collieries contri- buted £56 10s. 6d. and £52 Is. respec- tively. Cash handed in at bank on Decem- ber 31st last amounted to E133 9s. 6d., and the cash in hand (maternity nurses account) Ell 18s. 6d. During the year, Nurse Jones attended 175 cases, and the maternity nurse 81.
This is an actual fact. Mr. Jones sold a tin of Bagley's Kill Em Quick Power to a customer opposite next morning she asked him to come and see the hundreds of dead Beetles where she had sprinkled it. The registered Trade Mark is i on every label, Id. 3d. and 6d tins, refus nutations 217
Treherbert. At a, recent meeting of the "Major Lewis Lodge of the R.A.O.B., held at Smiths' Arms Hotel, a presentation .j tobacco pouch was made by Knight V KHiott, E.G.F.. to Primo G, Richards •j. jr services renitxvu. The art and union prize drawing held on behalf of the widow and children of the late Mr. W. Jones, of Dumfries Street, resulted in the substantial sum of 971 10s. being handed over to them. Messrs. Hooper and Share, the well- known local comedians, pitched their tent on the hillside last week. The camp this summer is situated in close proximity to the Tyler Forest Farm. The annual pleasure fair of the Upper Rhondda took place at Treherbert on Saturday, Monday and Tuesday last. For many years past, the fair has been held at Treorchy, but the Treorchy fairground has now been built upon. The attendance this year was not so good as in former years, but the numerous attractions con- tinued to be as popular as ever. Scores of people, inspired by the hope of catching a glimpse of the famous Hallev's Comet, ascended the neighbour- ing hills during Whitsun week, and Y.;ftehes were kept until the early hours of morning. All the bold spirits are emphatic in their declaration of having been successful in their object, and we would not dare to question their veracity. 12 Bladed Safety Razors.

Treorchy. Oil Wednesday evening of last week, an interesting presentation meeting was held at the Treorchy Skating Rink, when Mrs. Samuel Ramsey, on behalf of 06cal linkers" presented a cruet stand to Mr. Cecil Clarke (manager) on his departure to Weston-super-Mare.

There is much talk in the district of forming a John Bull League, and we learn that steps are being taken to invite Mr. H. Bottomley, M.P., to deliver an address. On Sunday, the anniversary services of Station Road Chapel were held, when interesting sermons were delivered by Prof. David Williams, M.A., Aberyst- wyth. Collections were taken towards liquidating the chapel debt. The annual musical festival of the massed bands of the Salvation Army was held in the Barracks, Treorchy, on Whit- Tuesday, under good conditions. The Senghenydd Ban3 figured prominently. We deeply regret to chronicle the death « at an advanced age, and after a very j lonk and painful illness, of Mrs. Ann 1 Cole, 160. Ynyswen Road, widow of the I late Mr. John Cole, who was a deacon at Ramah (W.C.) Chapel, which took place at her residence on Thursday. The funeral, which took place on Monday, was largely attended, the Rev. T. L. Davies, Soar. Cwmparc, officiating. Although the premier cricket team, which last year figured prominently in the district, have failed to secure a ground this year, there are a couple of junior teams in the district. The team known | as the Treorchy Boys is captained by Mr. Robert Pugh, and Mr. T. J. Powell ii secretary. Their ground is the Taff Field, and in dry weather it is a desirable "pitch." The death occurred on Friday of Mrs. Ann Eynon, 24, River Row, after a pro- longed illness. Deceased was fairly well known in the district, and was a member of the church at Ramah. The funeral of the church at Ramah. The funeral took place on Tuesday. The Rev. J. Elias Thomas, pastor of Ramah Chapel, will, we learn on good 1 authority, tender his resignation to the church on Sunday next, and will leave the district four weeks hence for Carmar- thenshire to take up the pastorate of Llangadock, wherefrom he has received and accepted a call.
