FATAL ACCIDENT.—On Tuesday afternoon a young man named Thomas Probert, 21 years of age, living at Mount Pleasant Row, Rhym- ney, met with his death at the Maclaren Col- liery, Abertysswg. It a.ppea.rs that the deceas- ed had been doing haulier's work during the last few days, and be was found on the tram line. His body was conveyed home to Rhym- nev shortly after five o'clock. FocHRiw CHAIR WINNER.—The winner of this Eisteddfodic chair this year was the popular Bard, Twynog Jeffreys, Rhymney. As the Bard is suffering from a long standing afflic- tion, it was not possible for him to be present at the Eisteddfod to receive the honour and prize. It was deemed suitable by his numerous bardic and literary friends that the event should be celebrated by attending at his house; and performing the chairing ceremony there. A largo number came together, when suitable songs were rendered, and enthusiastic addresses were delivered. Poetical effusions were also given appropriate to the occasion. The chair was taken by the Rev. Fred Jones, and the proceedings opened with a son"" "Ellen," by Mr. Tom Jones, which was most pleasing. Mr. Ben Jones remarked that Twynog had repeat- edly conferred honour upon Rhymney by his achievements at Eisfceddfodau. Mr. Calvin Jacobs also said he highly appreciated the ef- forts of the Bard, which were an inspiration to all of them to work and conquer difficulties. Mr. Daniel Davios said he felt proud of the success of his old friend Twynog, whose cour- age he admired, and reminded all present that the honours of his later days were the fruits of his younger days' labour. Mr. R. Benjamin said he felt bound to be present to congratu- late the winner. He held Twynog in the high- est esteem, and always had looked upon him as a most able man. Mr. George Jones saniz "Mor o Gan yw Cymru I Gyd," and poetical effusions were read by Ap Elyrch, from Gwili, Mellcrvn; Rev. R. Jenkins, Fochriw; R. Ingram, Bedlinog; Revs. J. Roderick, Fochriw; G. Thomas, and James Williams, Fochriw. Bardic addresses were also contri- buted by Rev. Fred Jonee, Ap Elyrch, Ap Tyd- vil, Ben Jones, Moillionydd, D. W Davies, and Daniel Davies. Mr. Qwen Davies, Pontiottyn, contributed a highly appreciated recitation, "x Crwydryn."
