KILSBF" GONE. One of the most noted of Welsh preachers, lecturers, and literary characters in the per- son of the Rev. J. R. Kilsby Jones, of Lian- wrtyd. died on Wednesday morning from inflammation of the lungs. Kilaby, who was in his 76th year,was well-known through- en; this district, as he was indeed all over the Principality, and his power in the pulpit and on the platform, religiously, socially, and politically, made him quite unique. The funeral takes place on Saturday afternoon, and will be private, It was only a month or two ago he visited Pontypridd, and ap- peared at the public meeting in support of the candidature of Mr Henry Hopkins, for a seat on the County Council.
"SOME RULE" WINS. We are not strong in racing matters, but the Tories are so vexed at the result of the parliamentary steeplechase that we cannot help cheering them up with a reminder of the fact that the horse which won it was Mr Cyril Flower, M. P.'s "Home Rule.'i o
DISESTABLISHMENT FOR SCOTLAND. Dr Clark's motion in favour of Home Rule for Scotland was put to the vote in the House of Commons on Tuesday night, when it was rejected by a majority of 121, bnt we were glad to find that in the minoriiy were 615 Gladstonian Liberals, including a good muster of Welsh members.

ASSESSMENT COMMIT rEE.-At a meeting of the Assessment Committpe of the Pontypridd Union hell on Wednesday, Rev.D. W. Williams, M.A., presiding, Mr Walter Bell appeared to appeal against the assessment of Nixon's Navigation gas works. It appeared that sinoe the Mountain Ash Local Board took to the public lighting of the district the company have not sold gas to outsiders, but the overseers co i- tinued the assessment at £256. Against this con- tinuation an appeal was now made.—Mr W. tPhillips, assistant overseer, contended that as factories, sheds, and agents' houses (which were lighted by this gas) were rated separately from the ton of coal," there ought to be, at any rate, some value placed on the gas works supplying them.- Ultimately, Mr Bell consented to the assessment of each property pro rata, taking £256 as the original assessment when the company also supplied the public. SUDDEN DSATH.-George Silter, a single man employed as under boots at the New Inn Hotel Pontypridd, was found by William Vines, the head boots, dead in a room downstairs at the hotel at six p.m. on Saturday. It seemed that the young man was engaged cleaning windows, and it is conjectured that he had a fit, a weakness from which he suffered periodically, and fell to the floor. There waa ft slight abrasion on the forehead. An inquest was held on the body on Monday, when a verdict of "Death from natural causes was retarned.

Anthony, and the surveyor (Mr J. Griffiths.)- In the course of the proceedings, Mr Anthony hoped they would not make all charges payable out of the common fund of the Union, as he be- leieved it was optional whether they would do so or not under the Local Government Act.—The Chairman agreed.-The clerk (Mr E. C. Spickett) said if they wished to carry on the present system. of apportioning the expenses to the various parishes they must apply to the County Corncil and show what difference there was in the soil or circumstances of the parishes.—The Chairman Well, I will give notice of motion to do so.

DRAMATIC PERFORMANCES. — On Monday and Tuesday evenings the Treforest Amateur Dra- matic Society gave splendid performances of "Colleen Bawn" at Tonypandy. The acting was even better than at Pontypridd recently, each character doing his or her part most admirably, and did the highest credit alike to themselves and to the piece. YSTR A.D. RETURN OF THE GLEE SOCIETY.—The Rhondda G!ee Society,which left England in September last for America, returned home on Tuesday evening, haviug been away nearly eight months. In the Course of their tiiur, they visited the principal towns in the United States, aad invariably met witb a good reception.

STEALING SHIRTS AT FERNDALE. SHE THOUGHT THEY WERE FLANNELS FOR THE BABY. At the Rhondda. Police Court, on Monday, Rachel Smith was charged with stealing seven flannel shirts, value 17s, the property of John Morgan. Prosecutor, a draper, said on Saturday night he lost seven or eight shirts from ootpide his shop. They were hanging in front of the shop window in two bundles. He missed them at 8 o'clock. They were safe half-an-hour before. In ^onseqaence of what a woman told him, he sent a boy out in search of de- fendant, but he failed to find her. P.C. Eiwards said on Saturday night he was in the railway booking office at Ferndale, and saw a woman come iuto the office, and take up a bundle that was on the window, and at the same time she said to the booking clerk "I am Mrs Smith" The clerk answered "All right." She returned in about five minutes with the bundle, and put it down in the same place where it was before, and again went out. His suspicions being aroused, he opened the bundle, and found it contained niue men's shirts. He then went ia search of defendant. Found her at the railway station some time later. She said she was going to Pontypridd. She owned the bundle. Told her she must come to the police station. She then denied the ownership. On being charged with the theft she said I bought them of a man for three shillings, I thought they were flannels for the baby." Fined 20s. A SECOND CHARGE. The same defendant was charge with stealing five flannel shirts, the property of Thomas Samuel, Fern- dale. David Vaaghan, assistant to Mr Samuel, said OH Saturday night last, P.C. Francis came to the shop, and fouad five shirts missing from out side the shop. Elizabeth Joseph, wife of Eli Joseph, pawnbroker, Ferndale, said defendant pledged two shirts at their shop. Fined 20s on this charge also.
w,! I' What ii d -<r!iifill f How that De Vera is—s > jolly —li s iiir-s'j n'\v;iy-op.jn. Man of the world — "Yes, usts). to anyone who want to put soine hing into it." Life is like a luirncs There are traces of care, lines of trouble, bits ot gn x) fortune, breaches of g"od manners, bridled tongues, and everybody has a tug to pull through. A deaf old lady being asked if she ever had her ears pierced by tile wail of distress, said she couldu't exactly remember, but she b.lieved it was done with a shoemaker's awl." SINGULAR TBNURES.-Ring John gave several lands at Kepperton and Atlerion, in Kent, to Solo- JII'ln AttefielJ, to be held by this singular service. That as often as the king should be pleased to cross the sea, the said Solomon, or his heirs, should be obliged to acompany him, to hold his maesty's head, if there should be occasion for it "that is, if I.e should be sea-sick"; and it appears by the- record in the Tower, that this same o ce of head- holding was actually performed ia the reign ot Edward L t
