RHIWLAS EMPLOYEES' SUPPER. On Saturday last, the workmen on the Rhiwlas Estate were treated in accordance with Mr. Price's annual custom, to a sub- stantial supper at the Lion Hotel. About 80 sat at the tables, and the treat seemed to be thoroughly enjoyed. The meeting which followed, at which Mr. E Watkins, the Estate Agent presided, included! songs, addresses, and the usual toasts to the donors of the feast. RECHABITE FRIENDLY SOCIETY. The anniversary of the above society was celebrated at Tegid Chapel School Room, on Friday evening last, when a large number of members sat at the tables to partake of the substantial fare, catered by Mrs. Evans, Tremaran. After clearing the tables, a miscellaneous meeting was held under the presidency of Mr. Thomas Owen, when songs were contributed by Misses M. E. Ro- berts, Union House, M. C. Da vies, Pare House, M. J. Davies, Ser.en office, and Mr. R, Thomas, Plasey street. Addresses were delivered by Mr. Williams, Cardiff, Mr. E. Davies, bookbinder, and by the president and secretary (Mr. D. R. Roberts). A vote I of thanks to the doctor for his care and attendance during the years, and to Mrs. Evans for her services as caterer, brought the proceedings to a close. We are glad to understand that the society continues to thrive, and that it has a substantial balance I' in hand, RAILWAY EMPLOYEES' SUPPER. On Thursday evening last, at the Bull's Head Hotel, an excellent menu was provided by the manager (Mr. Jennings), to the railway officials, and young men of the town, numbering in all about 30. The duty of carv- ingthe meat devolved upon Mr. John Edwards, butcher, who, needless to say, performed his work in a masterly style. The host made a point of having everything in 4 apple pie' order, and there was no lack either of attention or sustenance, at the table. At the close of the feast the genial District Medical Officer of the Railway (Dr. Wil- liams) appropriately addressed the company, and proposed a toast to the Host and Hostess. This was unanimously taken up. As the Doctor had to leave, Mr. Allen, sta- tion-master presided over the miscellaneous meeting, when songs were contributed by Messrs. H. J. Durman, J. Jones, Alfred Dav- ies, R. L. Davies (Corwen), W. J. Rowlands, W. E. Roberts, J. Grainger, and William Jones. Mr. Hawkins gave a selection on the mandoline and a violin solo was given by Mr. David Davies. Mr. Durman presided at the piano, and altogether a very pleasant evening was spent.
