A man by the name of John ..Chains eventually interfered between parties. defendant stated that he struck com- JVl,lriant because he had said that his pendant's) ice-cream was poisoned. T f^11 Williams, 23, Woodfield Terrace, J^od, said that the complainant was sting upon his barrow about three yards °tti his door, when defendant came up i0 him and rapped on his (complainant's) ^ii'ow .three times, and in a conver- Unl 1 Passed between them he "uerstood the defendant saying, You iih''0" ice-cream."

I Visit of Mr. F. R. Benson's Company to Tneherbent. Lovers of Shakespeare residing at Tre- herbert and the immediate neighbourhood have had a treat, during the first half of the present week. Mr. Benson's Shakes- pearean Company has drawn huge crowds to the Opera House night after night, and when one realises the amount of talent and grasp which is exhibited on the stage by this sterling combination, it is only what could be expected. It is, without, fail, one of the best, if not, the treat par excellence, which has been pro- vided for theatre-goers of the Upper Rhondda for many years. Not the most unimportant feature was the nature of the audiences. They were, for the most part, composed of—to use a, much be- laboured phrase—the intellectual cream of the locality. Teachers, schoolmasters, budding litterateurs, all keen students of the great English dramatist. The, per- formance of "Macbeth" on Wednesday evening was, indeed, a masterpiece. From the first moment when the: curtain went up until the final act, there was not one uninteresting minute. The audience was simply under a spell, and the intense silence which pervaded the great assembly during, some of the most thrilling scenes in the play, and the rapturous applause which greeted the conclusion of every act, testified only too plainly to the excel- lence of the acting throughout. To single out performers for special mention would indeed be invidious on our part; yet the character of the various roles and the circumstances of their setting demand a word of praise. First and foremost, of course, stood the title role, "Macbeth" (Mr. Henry Herbert). His acting was indeed magnificent; the contrition which he displayed after his murder of Duncan, King of Scotland, was most realistic, while the excellent manner in which Miss Dorothy Green figured as "Lady Macbeth" was a piece of realism so startling and so well sustained that she fully merited the applause which greeted her performance. The concern of Macduff" on discovering that his wife and children had been murdered was most touching, and did not fail to produce extraordinary effect upon his auditors. One word more. and that is that Mr. Benson has created in the hearts of Welshmen a new love tor the immortal Shakespeare, and we believe that his works will be studied with added zest and purer delight by those who were privileged to see his company's represen- tation of them.
Died in Bed. Wife's Tragic Discove y: On Saturday morning last, a young married man named Alban Jenkins (28), 46, Brynwyndham Terrace, Tynewydd, Treherbert, was discovered by his wife to be dead at her side. Deceased returned home from his work at Blaengwynfi on Friday evening, and retired toi bed about 11 or 12 o'clock. In the morning the wife hearu strange sounds emanating from her husband at her side, and he expired immediately after. An inquest was held on Monday touching the death of Jenkins, and a verdict, of "Death from natural causes was returned.
Odd Pars. One very well-known character at Oxford used to say that modern undergraduates were sadly inferior to their predecessors, who had constantly employed him when they went out with gun or rod. "There's a very idle set of never shoots they never goes a-fishiiig. They does nothing—nothing but read, read, read, from morning till night." Auntie (who is housekeeping during mother's enforced absence): "Now, you see, children, I have made you a pudding (murmurs of approval), and there won't be any trouble over getting you to take medicine to-night, for I am not going to give you any. (Loud applause). I have, however, mixed all the pills and draughts and powders up with the ingredients of the pudding." (Groans). SPONGE lead is produced from litharge by placing it in contact with a sheet-lead cathode in an electrolytic cell having a lead anode and dilute sulphuric acid as the electrolyte. The deposited hydrogen reduces the litharge, leaving a lead sponge of fine quality.
THE EVOLUTION OF THE EYE. In creatures now living upon the earth, we may trace a series of eyes from the highest and most efficient to the simplest dot of black pig- ment. The eye of the eagle may stand for the first, and the eye-spot of the amphioxus or the eight sense-germs of a jellyfish for the other extreme of the series. Mrs. Casey: "An' phwat did th' docthor say ailed ye?" Mr. Casey: "Appendicitis." Mrs. Casey: "Ocli, worra! Oi knew he'd say that < if ye wore thot new Sunday suit." "You?" snorted Miss Sharpe. "Marry you? Why, you're only an apology for a man." "But," protested Mr. Small, "you will not- "No; I will not accept the apology." "That fellow-townsman of yours," remarked the New Yorker, "hasn't much idea of table manners." "No," replied the Chicagoan, "I noticed that. Why, the other day I seen him use the same knife for his pie that he'd used to eat his peas with."
TO RENDER CLOTH WATERPROOF. Take ^oz. of Castile soap and one gallon of rain water. Boil for twenty minutes, skimming all the time. Remove from the fire, and when cold place the cloth in it, and let it remain to soak for twenty-four hours. Then take it out and hang it up to drain. When half dry, put it into the following solution: Half a pound of alum and 741b. sugar of lead dissolved in four gallons of rain water. Allow the cloak to soak thoroughly in this, and then hang it out to dry. This process entirely destroys the capillary attraction in the fibres and threads of the cloth, and the rain pours off the surface Without penetrating.
BALLS OF PERFUME. So that a delicate perfume hovers around all your clothes, a famous perfumer in Paris suggests the following method Select the perfume which you like best and always intend to use—for there must be an individuality about perfume— saturate tiny pieces of absorbent cotton with it, and put these pieces in every wardrobe drawer and in every box. Even blouse boxes and hat boxes must receive their cotton balls of, perfume if you wish always to have a dainty odour about you and your beloin ngs. These balls will need to be re-saturated about once a month.

Yr oedd yn cael ei blino er's blynyddoedd gan anwyldeb corfforol, ond yn fwy felly y flwyddyn ddiweddaf. Pan yn 21 oed, ymunodd mewn glan briodas a Mr. John Llewellyn, overman, House Coal, Penygraig, a chawsant gyd-fyw a'u gilydd am 43 o flynyddau; ond rhoddodd angau derfyn ar y cyfamod priodasol, a. hunodd yn dawel yn yr Iesu, braidd heb wybod i'w pherthynasau. Cawsant eu bendithio a thri o blant, y rhai ydynt wedi tyfu i fyny-dau fab ac un ferch— i alaru o herwydd colli mam mor dyner a gofalus. Ni welsom erioed neb yn fwy pryderus yn achoa ei phlant; ond er ei bod wedi huno, y mae ei chynghorion yn fyw. Un o'i nodweddion oedd glanweith- dra a threfnusrwydd yr oedd yn hynod yn mysg gwragedid yn y pethau hyn, ac yr oedd ei thy a'i holl amgylchoedd fel rhyw ail Eden. Beth ydyw yr amgylchiad hwn i'r teulu a'r perthynasau? Duw yn dryllio y nyth er mwyn rhoddi awgrym iddynt mai nid yma y mae eu cartref.

Sychwn ein dagrau, ynte, ac ymgysurwn yn y gobaith o gael cyfarfod a'r hon a hoffid mor fawr genym mewn cartref lie ni faedd angau yn dragywyddol gamu dros drothwy y drws. Mae enw da yr ymadawedig yn perarogli yn beraidd, a bydded i'r Arglwydd gyfodi Hawer o'i math i lanw y bylchau a wneir gan angau.

Visit of M. F- R. Benson's Co. to Porth. Lovers of the works of Shakespeare in Porth and district will be delighted to learn that Mr. F. R. Benson's eminent Shakespearean Company is to .pay a visit to Porth next week. The programme for the week is:-M,onday, The Merchant of Venice" Tuesday, The Taming of the Shrew"; Wednesday, Romeo and Juliet"; Thursday, "Hamlet"; Friday, "The Merchant of Venice"; and Satur- day, Macbeth." The company is a very strong one, numbering over thirty talented artistes, which includes Mr. Henry Herbert, Mr. Bernard Limpus, Mr. Esme Percy, Miss Dorothy Green, Miss May De Launey, Miss Kate Turner, etc., all well-known Shakespearean actors. Mr. Herbert only last month appeared at the Adelphi Theatre-, London, and was highly praised by the Press and public for his clever interpretation of the part of Antipholus." He should be seen to great advantage in the respective parts in which he will be seen in Porth. all of wfucii he lias delineated many hundred times throughout the kingdom. Mr. Bernard Limpus will take the lead in Romeo and Juliet." He created a most profound impression as Romeo" m Jamaica during the visit of the celebrated West Indian Company sent out last season by Mr. Benson. Miss Dorothy Green, who also toured the West Indies as leading lad-- will undertake the principal parts on this tour also. A clever actress she is proclaimed everywhere, and Porth will certainly endorse the opinion. Mr. Esme Percy a, short time ago was a most suc- cessful "Romeo" at the Royalty Theatre, London. A noteworthy fact in connection with the return visit of this company to Treherbert early this week was the record business done. The theatre was full at early doors each evening. The box office is now open at the theatre, and Mr. J. Thompson's Temperance Hotel, Portli. To avoid disappointment, seats should be booked, at once. The same company will visit the Workmen's Hall, Pentre, the first three nights of week commencing September 11th.

Presentation to a Treorchy Clergyman. Treorchy Church-folk and friends formed an interesting gathering at the Work- men's Institute on Monday evening last, to mark the departure from their midst of the Rev. J. G. Evans, curate of St. Matthew's Church. It was evident that the rev. gentleman was held in high esteem and was very popular, as much enthusiasm was evinced. There was a large and influential meeting, over which Mr. J. Piele presided in his usual and singularly happy and genial manner. A selection on the pianoforte by Miss Edie Williams, Llantwit Vardre, proved a most effective item, and fittingly preceded a very successful programme. Mr. A. H. Griffiths, in an intelligently delivered speech, expressed sincere satisfaction at the successful termination which the object had reached under the circum- stances. He remarked that, personally, he had occasion to speak very highly indeed of Mr. Evans. He further dwelt upon the position of the Church, both financially and otherwise, previous to Mr. Evans' advent eighteen months ago. And now at his departure, one cannot but notice the vast improvement. That he has been an earnest, faithful, and un- tiring worker in the Church and district is admitted by the populace. The speaker mentioned the kind and sympathetic ser- vices which both Mr. and Mrs. Evans had shown in times of sickness and sorrow. His good wife, with her ladylike and quiet nature, made her admired by all who, in sickness and adversity, perchanced to have received her comforting and sym- pathetic words. He felt that he was echoing the sentiments of all present in saying that St. Matthew's Church and also the district would sorely miss such an earnest, Christianlike worker. A fine rendering of The Veteran's Song" by the well-known tenor, Mr. Gomer Jones, delighted an appreciative audience, after which Mr. H. Cook, as one of the oldest members of St. Matthew's Church, pre- sented the rev. gentleman with an illu- minated address, with the following in- scription AN ADDRESS To the Rev. J. G. EVANS, St. Matthew's Church, Treorchy. Rev. Sir,—It is with sincere pleasure that we take this opportunity of extend- ing our heartfelt appreciation of the ex- cellent services which you have been pleased to administer in our midst. There- fore, we cannot but regret that circum- stances have necessitated your departure, and, with it, the discojitinuance of your good work. We feel that your stay amongst us has been one of great usefulness in more ways than one. We also desire to appreciate the kind and sympathetic manner which your good wife has exhibited in our midst. As a slight token of the estimation which we place upon your qualities, we respectfully ask of you to accept of this Address with the accompanying Purse of Gold, Wishing you and your family a long life of usefulness, happiness and pros- perity, we remain, on behalf of the sub- scribers.—J. Piele (chairman), A. Watts (treasurer), D. C. Davies (secretary), T. Morgan, R. Bell Williams, John Rees, W. Holmes, A. H. Griffiths, Richard Lloyd, James Hokey, Humphrey Cook, John Palmer, M. Tanner, A. JQ. Tribe, J. Chapman, Frederick Channing. Mr. Palmer sang ".Li-ie Vacant Chair" with splendid effect, and Mr. F. Channing treated the audience to an exquisite and actor-like recital of The Spanish War- rior." Mr. W. Powell (clerk to the Burial Board), in Welsh, poured forth eloquent tributes to the high qualities which Mr. Evans possessed, and expressed his regret at the recipient's decision to leave the place. He mentioned the clever and edifying sermons which he had been pleased to listen to by Mr. Evans. An- other pleasing feature was the presen- tation of a purse of gold to Mr. John Rees. Both donors, in a few chosen remarks, hoped that the rev. gentleman would be spared for many years to come to carry on his good work in his new sphere. The enthusiasm was now in- creased by some appropriate and amusing, topical verses, composed and sung .by Mr. Wm. Holmes, which were received with an ovation. Mr. Evans responded, and in his usual earnest way thanked all for their kindness to him and thoughtfulness in presenting him with such nice pre- sents. He would value them the address chiefly, as the purse of gold would be the property of his wife (laughter). He felt that he could not say much, but he hoped that the Church would continue to work amicably together just as before. He was extremely sorry to leave, but he felt that under the circumstances his work was done in Treorchy. He remarked that better co-workers were not needed. There was plenty of scope for good work, but tied hands could not be expected to do much. Mr. Evans again thanked the sub- scribers and all for their kindness to him. Mr. Gomer Jones sang God save the King" to end a most enjoyable musical evening. Mr. Evans and family were escorted to the station to meet the 9.5 o'clock train, and were given a hearty send-off."

To the Editor of the Rhondda Leader." Sir,—In answer to "F. R.'s letter in your issue of the 24th inst. re the above Fund, I think I can answer his questions- 1. The auditors of the last balance sheet were not. members of the Commit- tee. 2. All investments were made by the then trustees. by the sanction of general meetings and if your correspondent had attended those general meetings, he would have fully satisfied his .ambition. 3. The Committee have never asked the Library Committee for such a privilege; therefore, there was no need of tres- passing upon their benevolence as your misguided correspondent suggests. But, a certain bank did not see vtheir way open to advance upon deeds outside the Rhondda. If your correspondent wishes any fur- ther information, we shall be tpleased to inform him at a general meeting held at the proper place of the Fund upon a regular club night. Trusting this will meet with "F. R.'s" expectations.—I am. yours faithfully, ion behalf of the Com- mittee. WM. MAY, Secretary. Llwynypia, j August 30th, 1905.

Pontypridd Guardians. A meeting of the Pontypridd Guardians was held at the Union on Wednesday last, Mr. Godfrey Clarke in the chair, and Alderman E. H. Davies in the vice-chair. The attendance included Mrs. Hill-Male, Mrs, Lewis, Mrs. Walter Morgan and Mrs. Elizabeth Davies. Messrs. Isaac Thomas, W. S. Brinson, D. Roberts, John Ed- wards, T. B. Evans, Ed. Williams, Wm. Jeffreys, Wm. Morgan (Treherbert), Jno. Higgon, J. T. Jones, J. W, Richards, Dr. E. N. Davies, Mr. John Davies, Rev. Jno. Jenkins, Messrs. Wm. Evans, John Jen- kins (Gilfach Goch), Lewis Williams, and Thomas Roblin. Mr. R. Roberts (Deputy Clerk) read the minutes of the last meeting, which were confirmed and adopted. The Vaccination Officer reported two cases of small-pox from Wattstown. The Medical Officer had ordered the patients' removal to the Isolation Hospital, and every precaution had been taken to pre- vent the spread of the outbreak. The Vaccination Officer was empowered, if necessary, to open additional vaccination stations. Alderman E. H. Davies called atten- tion to the absence of Mr. Wm. Thomas, which was necessitated by the death of his wife, and he moved that the Clerk be instructed to convey to him the sym- pathy of the meeting. The motion was carried, each member rising to his feet. Alderman E. H. Davies called atten- tion to the annual visit to the Asvlum. A committee was appointed (one member from each parish) to visit the Asylum on the 16th inst, Representatives were also appointed to visit St. Michael's Home on Saturday, September 9th. A question of revising the paupers1 list was not received with favour, and the matter dropped.
