The bazaar was opened on Thursday by Mrs. Griffiths, Porth House, who in a neat little speech said that her sympathy was with the English Baptist Church, and gave a donation of five guineas. Mr. E. Samuel, M.A., presided over the bazaar, and Miss Gwen Mathias rendered the song, "Promise of Life," in the morn- ing, and Vale of Life in the evening. The Rev. W. E.

The committee, who consisted of only fourteen ladies, started on their venture without any funds, all the work being voluntary. Unstinted praise is due to Mrs. W. H. Bowen, who, in the capacity of secretary, carried out her duties ener- getically. Great praise is also due to Mis. Samuel (president) and Mrs. Harding (treasurer) and to the other members of the committee. The committee have handed over JE50 to the treasurer of the church', and a sum was kept in hand to start another venture on a future occa- sion.
