Lady Aberdare, who presided, spoke in glowing terms of the work done in outher counties by the Red Cross Society, under the presidency of Lady Plymouth and Lady Llewellyn. Her ladyship, thought that nowhere was the sooiety needed more urgently than in Glamorganshire, where there was such a large area and scope for the volunteer workers in rendering first-aid to those meeting with accidents whilst following their employment in the collieries. She was pleased to. associate herself with such a useful and much-needed work, and trusted that all who possibly could do so would attend the. classes and take certificates for rendering first-aid^ Her ladyship, in introducing Dr. Lynn Thomaa said it gave her great pleasure to do so, and thanked Dr. Thomas for coming to further the Red Cross Society in Mountain Ash. Dr. Lynn Thomas, who was accompanied by Mrs. Thomas, was wall received. He said it gave him very gerat pleasure to see such a large number of people. Some very interesting pictures were shown, which he explained, illustrating his lecture on the work which he was most anxious to furth.1) in rendering first-aid to the soldiers in time of war. Mr. Thomas then went on to explain that in the South African war more than half the soldiers who perished died not through bullet wounds, as would be generally supposed, but through inattention. Lord Aber- dare proposed a hearty vote of thanks to Dr. Thomas for his lecture, and reminded the audience of the debt they were all under to Mr. Thomas for his great and valuable services in South Africa to his fellow-countrymen. He was one of the first of our doctors to volun. teer for the front. Colonel M. Morgan seconded the vote of thanks and Capt. F. N. Gray sup- ported. The latter said he trutsed that all who could do so would give her Ladyship all the help ahey could to further the cause of the society in Mountain Ash. A few very amusing pictures terminated a pleasant evening.
