The ta- bles were presided over by the ladies of the classes. After tea a gold mounted walking stick was presented to Dr. Dunbar by Miss Mary Gwen Davies, on behalf of the classes, ajid Dr. Dunbar, in response, feelingly acknow- ledged the gift. FOREST ROAD.-On Sunday evening, a child- ren's service was held at the Welsh Baptist school-room, when an excellent paper was read by Miss Mary James entitled, "Builders and Buildings." An address was delivered by Mr. W. R. Thomas. A recitation was given b" Miss Mabel Jones, and a solo by Miss Cas- sie Davies. Mr. Abel Stephens conducted the singing, while Miss Rebecca Thomas presided at the organ. SOCIAL.—A very enjoyable tea and social were held on Thursday evening at the Parish Hall by the members of the St. Matthias' De- bating Society to wind up the session in a fitting manner. The table delicacies were pro- vided by the lady members, and highly appreci- ated by all presents Dancing, songs and games made up the programme for the evening. Songs were capitally rendered by Messrs. Daniel, Capt. W. Dowdeswell, Bert Ninnis, and R. Evans, Mr. Wall recited and Miss Ed- wards gave a pianoforte solo. Thanks to Mrs. R. Evans and her many willing co-operators were given. Nobody experienced a dull mo- ment, and there were many expressions of re- gret ^when all joined in singing "Auld Lang byne to bring the evening to & conclusion. Mission SERVICES.—Mr. W. R, Lane, of the National Free Church Council, London, con- cluded a very successful ten days' mission in Treharris, under the auspices of the local Free Church Council, on Monday night, when he addressed a crowded congregation at Taber- nacle, on "The Gambling Table to the Mercy Seat." The address was highly instructive, and at times amusing. Mr. Lane was at one time in the Coldstream Guards, to which fact he frequently referred. On Sunday afternoon Mr. Lane addressed a large number of men at Tabernacle, the advice imparted being lis- tened to with rapt attention. All the services were held at Tabernacle with two exceptions, these being held at Bethel English Bapriot. On Saturday evening, Mr. Lane delivered a lan- tern lecture entitled, "The Bedford Tinker and his book," to a vast audience. The mission has been a complete success, and it is likely to be followed by a Welsh mission on a later date. VESTBY MEKTING.-The annual vestry in con- nection with St. Mathias* Church, was held on Tuesday evening, in the Parish Hall. The Vi- car (Rev. R. David) presided, and reviewed the work of the past year. Apart from the financial standpoint it had, he said, been a year of distinct progress. The number of Com- municants had increased; the Parish Hall had been completed and was now in use; a series of lectures had been organised by the Church Defence League, and an interesting course of debates on the topics of the day had been held during the winter months, disclosing several budding orators among the members of the congregation and friends. In response to his appeal made at the last vestry meeting, a large number of teachers and helpers had join- ed the Sunday School, which was now in a very efficient state. In fact, the co-operation of the laity in all branches of the Church's work had been very marked during the year, and very gratifying. He trusted that the interest aroused would be even greater as time went on. Capt. W. Dowdeswell, the retiring people's warden, was elected Vicar's warden, and Mr. Evan Morgan people's warden for the ensu- ing year. The treasurer, Capt. W. Dowdes- well, and the secretary, Mr. W. R. J. Firth, were re-elected. Messrs. T. Jenkins, G. All- mand, J. Aurelius, J. A. Jenkins, and J. Mose- ley Jones were added to the existing list of sidesmen. A resolution strongly condemning the introduction of the Welsh Disestablishment and Disendowment Bill into Parliament was proposed by Mr. Durden. and carried unanim- ously. Copies were directed to be sent to the Prime Minister, Mr. Balfour, the Archbishop of Canterbury, and the Bishop of Llandaff. Votes of thanks to the Vicar for presiding, and to the retiring officers for their services during the past year brought the proceedings to a close. NATUKE IS ARRAYETI in all her glory.
