Porth. The Ferndale Prize Band gave a sacred concert on Sunday last at the Palace, Porth, before a fairly large audience. They were assisted by Madame Coslett-Leyehon (soprano), of Pontypridd, and owing to Mr. Thomas Thomas, of Ynyshir, being unable to be present, Mr. David Thomas (tenor), of Wattstown, assisted. Mr. T. E. Lewis, professor of music, Hopkins- town, presided at the piano. The pro- gramme opened with a selection by the band, Fertile Plains," after which they played Rossini's Works (the test piece for the South Wales Association Cup con- test, 1907), both being loudly applauded. Mr. David Thomas gave a fine rendering of Cujus Animam," the test piece at the National Eisteddfod. A trombone solo, "Ora Pro Nobis," by Mr. Geo. Barratt, accompanied by the band, was greatly appreciated. Madame Coslett-Leyshon sang I will extol Thee and The Soul's Awakening." Mr. A. O. Foxihall gave a euphonium solo, German Air," the test niece at the National Eisteddfod, upon which he was successful. Other selections bv the band were Ar hyd y nos," Faust," and Windle," all being greatly appreciated. The funeral of Joseph Chilcott, of 76, Cymmer Road, Porth, took place on Satur- day last. The deceased, who was a night haulier at the New Pit, Cymmer Collieries, was fatally injured whilst at work, being crushed between the tram and the timber. He leaves a widow and three small chil- dren. A large body of workmen gathered together to pay a last tribute to a departed comrade. Amongst those present were: Mr. E. S, Williams (manager) and other officials of Cymmer Collieries, Messrs. John Hughes, Thomas Morgan, John Rogers, and Benjamin Wheeler (check- weighers). Wreaths were sent by the Cymmer Colliery workmen and from friends. The Rev. J. Francis, curate, officiated at the house and graveside.
