TROEDYRHtW. » CARMEL.—Special services were held at Carmel Baptist Chapel, on Sunday last, at which Miss Ellen Williams, of London (lady preacher), delivered three excellent sermons. Large con- gregations attended the services. RECEIVING ORDER.—A receiving order has been made against George King, trading at G. King and Son, 31, Bridge-street, Troedyrhiw, grocer and butcher. CHAMBER OF TRADE.—The monthly meeting was held on Thesday night, at Morgan's, Bridge-street. Mr. Daniel Davies, president, presided over a good attendance. The secretary (Mr. W. Adams) read letters acknowledging receipt of resolutions from Mr. JC. W. Upstone, divisional superintendent of the Great Western Railway Co., at Pontypool-road, re fortnightly tickets to the North, on Mondays, and the improvement of the entrance to the motor halt, at Troedyrhiw, promising that the matters should receive immediate attention.—The secre- tary also read a letter from Mr. Isaac Edwards, o fDowlais, hon. sec. of the Federated Chambers of Trade, stating that the half-yearly meeting of the Federation will be held on Thursday, 5th o fMay, 1&10, and that any matter for discussion should be sent to him as early as possible.—A long discussion took place on the need of a railway station in place of the present motor halt on the Great Western and Rhymney Joint Railway at Troedyrhiw. It was generally felt that the number of passengers using the present halt was sufficient to justify the two companies in building a station.—Mr. F. James proposed, and Mr. J. D. Jones seconded, that the Chamber again petition the Great Western and Rhymney Railway Companies to erect a railway station, and that the secretary be instructed to send a copy of the resolution to Mr. Isaac Edwards, asking him to place same upon the agenda for discussion at the next half-yearly meeting of the Federated Chambers.—Mr. G. Brynmor Jones, one of the auditors, stated that he had, in company with Mr. DL Davies, audited the accounts of the Chamber, and found all correct. —Rev. P. Williams proposed, and Mr. L. G. Tiley seconded a hearty vote of thanks to the auditors.—Several notices of motion were given for next meeting. EISTEDDFOD.—A very successful Eisteddfod was held in connection with Nazareth C.M.
