Notes and News.


AT the monthly meeting of the Welsh Club, held last week, thirty new members were enrolled as a commencement for the third year series. Only a few of the old members have been unable to continue their support to the institution, and if a substantial increase of new members can be secured for the coming winter session, it ought to enable the directors to make the club a decided success. THE new Fishguard route of the G.W.R. has been very well patronised during the present season in spite of the unsettled state of the weather. Touring in Ireland as well as in Wales will become an easy as well as a moderately cheap holiday with these new and improved railway facilities. This week's issue of Y Goleuad is printed with deep rules, as if the paper was in mourning after some departed friend. On looking through its pages we notice that the leader is an article on the proposed English churches for Welsh Methodists in London. Are we to infer that the proprietor is in mourning already after the departure of the Welsh London churches? If such is the case, we can assure him that they are very much alive, and that the advocates of the English element are very few and quite insignificant. As the Emlyn Evans Testimonial has to be closed in time for the Swansea Eisteddfod on the 20th of this month, we trust that all our proposed subscribers from London will send their mite without delay to the local secretary, Mr. E. Vincent Evans, 64, Chancery Lane, W.C. It will be gratifying to Mr. Emlyn Evans's admirers to hear that the sum already in hand amounts to nearly five hun- dred pounds. MR. W. EVELYN EDWARDS, the Welsh Tenor at St. Benet's church, played an important part the other day in saving a life at the Surrey Commercial Docks. A man was dis- covered in an unconscious state in one of the Docks, and after being brought to the bank efforts were made to restore animation. Mr. Edwards applied the Howard method to the case, and after about twenty minutes' effort the patient began to breathe regularly. The system was continued for another hour, when the doctor present declared that the man was well enough to be removed to the Infirmary. It will pay all interested to get Allen Pearce's catalogue.
