PONTYPRIDD RURAL SANITARY AUTHORITY. The monthly meeting of this Board was held on Wednesday, when there were present:—Mr J. Lewis (in the chair), Rev D. W. Williams, M.A., Messrs E. Edwards, M. Cule, T. H. Thomas, W. Lewis, H. Anthony, W. Evans, T. Morgan (Tonteg), E. John, W. John, R. Jenkins, and T. Williams.-Messrs Roberts and Evans attended to explain why houses had been begun by them on the Cillynydd estate without submitting plans.—Both blamed the builder. With regard to the question whether a nine-inch brick wall was sufficient they and the Board could not agree, and it was decided that a committee of the Eglwysilan and Llanfabon members should visit the site of the houses on Wednei;day.-T- he Surveyor (Mr J. Evans) reported that he had received from the Cil- fynydd estate agent plans of roads and of the houses already siazted.-This matter was referred to a special meeting to be held next week.—In ordec to save expense it was decided to try to get the ashes at Llanfabcn takea away by th* farmers, ashbins to be provided by the Boacd.-The Surveyor reported that Mr Sheppard agreed to the proposed waterworks at Gilfaeh Goch, but complained that the Board had allowed the fenee on the xobdside to fall, aad it was probable he would object until the Board attended to that; whereas he would no doubt come to favourable terms if the Beard met him on that point.—The matter was deferred.
DRUKKEHIES3 II THE RHOHDDA. A correspondent writes:-Surely it is high time that a few words should be said on this head. It is a fact that many parsons are constantly summoned to the police-court for drunkenness end disorderly con- duct. Drunkenness is now at a Tery high pitch in this important valley. Such being the case we cannot refrain any longer from expressing our opinion on the real cause of how so much beer is consumed. lu the first place I should have stated that I have many years' experience in visiting the residences of all classes of people almost daily. I find that a dirty home has a large share to induce men to attend public houses. It is lamentable to think how some women allow themselves to be wrapped in filth. Such is the case which I have often to witness. This in itself must impair domestic happiness. When persons cannot secure home comforts they naturally seek for it elsewhere, and, generally, they seek for some sort of pleasure in public-houses. How is the untidiness brought about ? We can safely say it is through foolish women indulging in drink. I know of some women who drink excessively; thereby causing their homea to look dingy and miserable. I read lately of a young lady (who has the comfort of others moah at heart) advising one family how to live cheerful and happy. She advised the wife in the first place to keep a clean house, and that kind words and bright smiles would cost nothing. The words had a marked impression upon the person whom the young lady addressed. She forthwith altered her node of living, and her creditable efforts ultimately had the desired effect. Up to this time her husband was frequenting the tap-room mostly every day. But as aoon as his house became a greater attraction he ceased his aid habits, ond became afterwards a very useful member of society. If Jnauy women would see the errors *f their ways they would sudeavour to have a happy and clean home. We aanao4 oxpmi reform until the heads of families study sobriety and cleanliness. Water is plentiful, and can be very well used to add comfort in every family. If women desire sober husband* they mast abstaia from leading an idle sort ef life, and not allow their time to be spent in gossiping. This oweplsd with total abstinence oa their own part would unquestionably fcriag happitees to every home, no matter how humble the families might be it life.
JtEYlYAL DETIIGS II THE IMOIDDI. On Friday the last of a series of revival meetings, held by Miss Rosina Davies, of Treherbert, was brought to a slose. The Nebo Baptist Chapel, which is larp aad commodious building, was filled to excess. The services consisted of hymns, prayers, and addresses, and lasted, a* hoar and a half. At the conclusion of her address, Miss Davies invitsd all her listeners to join the Charch of Christ. Four were nlighteaed, who could refrain no longer from leading the lives of Christians. Since the meetings have •immenced n* I*ss than 91 have seea th* errors of their Ways. It appears three were adhersnts of Jerusalem Methodist Chapel, Tea; Nasaretb Metho- dist Chapel, t; Wesley an Chapel, Redfack. 1; Nehe Baptist Chapel, 2 Bodringallt Indepeadoat Chapel 3; and Bethel Methodist, 9; and oas had not deoided which plaee of worship she would attend. Sinoe Sunday afternoon the meetings were held regularly with the exception of Thursday evening, and were exceedingly well attended. In fact every available "at was accupied. The efforts 01 Miss Davies have been highly appreciated, and the com- mittee who engaged her should feel very pleased, for the good object they had in view has resulted in making a deep impression in the neighbourhood of Heolfach and the surroanding district, which will not own be forgotten.
PONTYPRIDD HIGHWAY BOARD AND THE BARBY RAILWAY COMPANY At a special meeting of the Pontypridd High. way Board hetlde oa Wednesday, under the presi- dency of Mr. J. Lewia (Tynyoymmer), the surveyor (Mr. J. Griffiths) reported that Mr. Mackay, the contractor of the Barry Railway Company had remedied tbe co.ditiun of the road between Pen- tonteg and awm.-This was considered aatlsfaotory. —The Surveyor then read the correspondence which had taken place between him and Mr. Szlumper with regard to the deviation of the road near Natitydall .-This showed that, as far back as June be otl'ed the attention of Mr. Sz um- per to the fact that the new road wis not of the proper width, and that this Board and the Ponty- pridd Local Board desired to have the acute angle at Nantydall straightened, and were prepared to contribote .£.70 towards the cost -Mr.. gzlutnpor offered to widen the road at first 3 feet, aad after- wards only 18 inchea was mentioned in a letter of his.-In reply to quessions, the Sorveyor said the old road was 27 fuet wide, while the new road was in some ptacea 20 feet and in others 19 feet — After a brief conversation it was decided to write to the Barty Company, insisting upon this Board's right to a 27 feet road, and threatening proceedings if their demand be not complied with.
