Wales, writing on the 28th February, 1910, says :—" I have been a great sufferer fro. indigestion for about seven vears, but my wife advised me one day to do away with tea and try a packet of Dr. Tibbies Vi-Cocoa. I tried it although I was suffering so bad with indigestion I really did not know what to do with myself but I still kept on trying to see if it would do me any good. I have used it now for the last six years and I could not do without it, as it has been a great remedy for me as a steel worker." Dr. Tibbies Vi-Cocoa contains all the elements that enrich the blood and restore the enormous nervous waste so common among all men and women. Do not ask your grocer for cocoa. Ask for a Cd. packet of Vi-Cocoa. COULD NOT SEE THE BRIDGE.—Jeremiah Reardon, described by Police- T iispector Lamb as one of the most violent men in the locality, answered to a summons at an occasional court, on Monday, charging him with being drunk and disorderly on Saturday Dight.-P.C. Timothy Lawton proved the case.—Reardon said the night was so dark that he could not see his way home.—P.C. Lawton I showed him the bridge over which he had to go, but he was too drunk to see it (laughter). The usual penalty was imposed. M-a. D. A. THOMAS, M.P.—Mr. D. A. Thomas, M.P., who returned to England on Monday afternoon from Tunis, to resume his Parliamen- tary duties, much improved in health, found awaiting him a telegram, informing him of the very serious illness of his brother, Major Moteton Thomas, and immediately started for Exmouth. Tbe ion..member for Cardiff was thus unable to take part in the division in the House of Com- mons. Major Moreton Thomas is a younger brother of Mr. D. A. Thomas. He lived for years near Brecon, but spent much of his time on the Continent. He is a keen sportsman, an excellent shot, and a iamous breeder and exhibitor of sporting dogs. Miss THORNEY'S EVENING PARTY.—On Friday night, at the Angel Buildings, Miss Thomey gave her annual party to the members of her class and friends, the guests numbering about seventy. The large hall had been exquisitely decorated, and the affair proved one of the most enjoyable functions of the season. The dining-hall had been arranged to represent a drawing-room, and there was a profusion of choice flowers and plants upon each of the. tables, showing the good taste and management of the hostess, who is a well known and highly respected daughter of the late Police-Supt. Thomey. Fancy dress was optional, and some elegant dresses were worn, Miss Thorney being attired in a magnificent Empire gown of black merveleau silk, trimmed with jet. TheM.C.'s. who did their work excellently, were Mr. W. Macdonald, Mr. Howell Thomas and Mr. G. H. Owen (L. & P. Bank), while a good programme of music was supplied by Mr. Hinton, of Peny- darren. Dancing commenced at 8.30, and -.vas kept up until 4.30 in the morning. MERTHYB CYMREIGYDDION.—Last Friday evening, at the usual place of meeting, members of this Society met for the last time this session, to hear a paper read by Mr. Benj. Jones, "Merthyrfab." on The Bards of Merthyr and the District (Beirdd Merthyr a'r Cylch). There was a good muster of the faithfuls present which was a proof that the subject was inter-, esting. Mr. Jones has given this subject a great deal of attention. He himself took great interest in the old bards when he was very young, but the portion of the subject which he dealt with was earlier than what he could, through his own memory, write upon. He went back to the year 1821, when lolo Morganwg founded the first Cymreigyddion Society. The reader first gave a list of the bards up to about 1880, which were from 80 to 100. The bards he dealt with were the following:—Titus Jenkins, Roger .j Williams (Gwilym Llywel), David Saundersr^(an old minister of Seion, Twynyrodyn), "Taliesin a b lolo," Rees Lewis (Ab Tydfil), and Howell Cynog." Mr. Jones gave a very lengthy account of lolo Morganwg while that cele- brated bard lived at Merthyr with his son, Taliesin ab lolo. The reader of the paper was asked to continue his researches into the ancient history of the bards of Merthyr and district, and encouraged by the aid of the Society, to publish his work in book form. leuan Dyfed, in moving a vote of thanks, praised the paper, and expressed a hope that Merthyrfab would continue to gather the history of Merthyr bards. Gweruy fed seconded the motion, which was carried. Alaw Tydfil and Cerddwyson took part in the discussion.
