We feel sorry to be constrained to refute a Cwmparcian rumour that the famous Target ground is being levelled for athletic purposes. The "laying low" of certain little irregularities "last week was done by two youthful golf enthusiasts who "sliced" (or is it "foozled" ) their drives in true beginners' fashion. TREHERBERT YOUNG LIBERALS. The Treherbert branch of the Young Liberals League commenced their winter session on Wednesday evening, when a meeting was held at the Temperance Hotel. Bute Street. A good number attended, and were, treated to an address on '•Disestablishment" by the Rev. W. A. Jenkins, Blaenrhondda. This branch was not formed until almost the end of last season, and were thus unable to last season, and were thus unable to have a good tart. They have., however, started the current season in real earnest, and a bright and successful session is [anticipated. Mr. Gwilym Walters is secretary. CYMREIGYDDION C LASES. The Cymreigyddion of the Rhondda are. intent upon the formation of good pro- greseive classes in Welsh—to study the language, the literature and the history of \\ales. Classes in Pentre. are being organised, and will commence in the near future. The secretary, Mr. O. J. Owen, is himself announced as the teacher of the eldest students' class in this part of the Rhondda.

The very fair congre- gation listened with great interest and enjoyment to a. masterly lecture. The chairman was Dr. Rickards, Pentre. PARISH HALL, FERNDALE. To signalise the opening of the Parish Hall, Ferndale, after extensive altera- tions. (including the provision of a much needed classroom, and stage for cantata purposes), a successful concert was held on Thursday evening last by the Rhondda Orpheus Glee Society, under the con- ductorship of Mr. David Jones. In addi- tion to the choruses and glees by the Society, excellent vocal items were con- tributed by Messrs. Joe Jones, John Davies, Owen Treharne, John Evans, Uri Jones, Samuel Price and Tom Williams. The programme was an attractive one in all respects, and was much appreciated. Mr. F. Llewellyn Jacob, M.E. (agent to Messrs. D. Davis and Sons, Ltd), pre- sided. WOMEN'S ANGRY DEMONSTPvATION. A peculiar demonstration more parti- cularly by the. women-folk took place at Owmparc on Monday afternoon last, a certain step-father, who was alleged to have badly exceeded the duties expected of a fond parent, being the, victim. Hordes of angry Amazons watched his return from the colliery after his day's work, and one buxom lady especially took the palm—(h)er capacity for objurgation and righteous wrath being a source of ever- lasting wonder dame to a Inere man." Fortunately, P.C. Fudge and a couple more men were at hand, or the affair would have looked ugly. We understand the Inspector of the N.S.P.C.C. is taking up the matter. ATTEMPTED BURGLARIES AT FERN- DALE. A series of attempts at burglary have taken place at Ferndale during the last few days. On Saturday last, it appears that someone had entered one of the classrooms of Penuel (C.M.) Chapel, but upon examination it was found that there was nothing taken. Again on Monday night, between 6.30 p.m. and 10 p.m., the house of Mr. W. H. Jones, fish- monger, Ardwyn Terrace, was broken into when Mr. Jones and his fajnily were attending the performance of Marjory at the New Workmen's Hall, of which performance Mr. Jones was the con- ductor. On their return, they found that something wrong had taken place in the house, and upon searching the building it was found that 30s. in cash, a silver watch and chain with a gold medal had been taken. The burglars gained admit- tance by smashing one of the back win- dows. Inspector Thomas and his staff are making enquiries, but no clues have as yet been found.
