Edwards (Penlan), who has served 32 years without a breach on the Pontypridd and Merthyr Boards of Guardians respectively, has definitely decided not to again offer his services on the Merthyr Board. Mr. Edwards says he finds his work in the County Borough Council and its various committees quite ample for him.

They were assisted by the orchestral band, conducted by Mr. Dan Osborne, and the accompanists were Miss E. A. Allen and Mr. Idwal Shankland.

Morgan, Rhymney, soprano; Miss Laura Lewis, Treorky, contralto; Mr. Ted Smith, tenor; Mr. Ben Date, baritone; Miss Thomas, Abertillery, and Madame Blunt, Treharris. All the artistes acquitted themselves very creditably, including the choir, numbering 120 voices. CHURCH DEFENCE.—In connection with the Treharris Church Defence League, a lecture was delivered in the Parish Hall last Thursday evening, by Mr. Wm. Godfrey, organiser for South Wales, the subject being Disestablish- ment and Disendowment." Mr. J. Moseley Jones presided. The lecturer, in the course of an able address, which was frequently applauded, pointed out that Establishment" only meant the State recognition of Almighty God in the affairs of the nation, and as regards its property the State only protected it by law, in the same way as that of any other body or individuals. He refuted the misleading statements that the clergy of the National Church were paid by the State, and fully described the sources of the Church's income. VISITS OF MINING STUDENTS.—Through the kindness of Alderman D. Prosser, proprietor of the Miskin Colliery, Penrhiwceiber, several parties of mining students from Treharris and the neighbourhood have, during the past fort- night, visited that colliery. Mr. Prosser's interest in education is well known, and he always welcomes students to his colliery to inspect places and objects of interest. The attraction just now is an electrical generator, coal-cutter and pump, recently installed by various firms. Messrs. Robey, of Lincoln, supplied the steam engine, Messrs. Mavor and Coulson, of Glasgow, the generator, cables, switch-box and electric coal-cutter, of the famous Pickywick type; while Messrs. Siemen's and the Albany Engineering Company supplied the motor and pump. The students, accom- panied by Mr. D. R. Hill, remained some four hours underground on each visit, and expressed themselves delighted with the arrangements.
