Porth. The Rev. R. B. Jones left for America. on Wednesday last with the hearty good wishes of his numerous friends. We also desire to extend to the rev. gentleman our heartiest wishes for a pleasant voyage and a successful mission. Mr. Jones will be absent from the district for about three months. The Rev. Penry Evans, pastor of the Welsh Congregational Chapel, has received an unanimous call to the pastorate of Victoria Road Chapel, Newport, Mon. At the invitation of the bachelor em- ployees of Messrs. Thomas & Evans, close upon t¡yo hundred fellow-employees and friends were invited to a social which was held in the spacious assembly room on the second floor of the commodious premises of the firm on Thursday evening last. The objects of the social were chiefly for the purpose of giving an impetus to a move- ment which was promoted some months ago amongst the employees towards the establishment of a Library and Reading Room, with its attendant advantages, in connection with the firm. Dr. Chalke, M.A., LL.D., presided at a subsequent meeting, and amongst others addresses were delivered by Mr. William Evans and Mr. Madge (manager of the Tonyrefail branch of the firm). The Cymmer Colliery Brass Band, under the conductorship of Mr. George F. Martyn, were in atten- dance and discoursed sweet music during the evening. The following programme was performed in a thoroughly creditable manner: —Baritone solo, Mr. Foster, Tonyrefail; comic song, "That's, how he sat on a tack," Mr. Tom Walters. The local Robey fairly brought down the house with his inimitable rendering, and as an encore he responded with "They can't diddle me." Duet, Excelsior," Messrs. Foster and Abraham; song, Angus Macdonald," Miss Thomas (E. J. Rees). Miss Thomas received quite an ovation for what was undoubtedly an ex- cellent rendition of this favourite solo. Alto solo, Dim yn debyg i cartref," Master Griffiths, who, being encored, re- sponded with But the Lord is mindful of His own solo, Hen Iaith fy Mam (T. D. Edwards), Mr. Tom Abraham; comic songs, What makes you turn your nose up, Sally ? and Otherwise I'm all right," Mr. Tom Walters; solo, Alone on the Raft," Miss Thomas; solo, "0 na byddai'n haf o hyd," Mrs. Howells. The selections contributed by the band were: —" Los Piccadores March," All the Winners valse, "L'Amour et Prentemps," and Pick of the Basket." The title of the latter is quite appropriate, as it con- tains all the latest comic and sentimental songs, and the audience did not fail to shew their appreciation of this particular item, which took exceedingly well. The singing of the National Anthem concluded an enjoyable evening's entertainment. To he wise and otherwise. Remember you will get nothing for nothing in this world but fresh air and day light.
