Dinas. For some months past, the Dinasites have had amongst them a supposed heir to a large estate and fortune, amounting to £ 28,000. He exhibited three letters from his supposed rich uncle appointing him sole heir of his large possessions. The past history of the claimant was mys- terious. Everyone believed him to be a seafaring man. He would talk about ships and distant lands as if he had surveyed the globe hundreds of times. One could imagine that he had dwelt in every locality from San Francisco to Peru. All the ports of Great Britain, the Continent, and those of America and Australia were well- known haunts to him, and he knew every ship from bow to stern. He was every inch a sailor, and was well gifted with ability to build model sailing ships, which were highly prized amongst the inhabi- tants. He always found ready buyers for any of his handiwork in that particular line. He had lived here an honest life far six years and more, and no one ever dis- puted his honestly until his rich uncle from Sunderland announced him by letter that his days were fast nearing the end, and that he wished him to participate in his huge fortune for the remaining portion of his life. Soon after receiving this letter, he told his acquaintances that his uncle had sent two men down from Sunderland to the Cymmer Colliery Offices to make the necessary enquiries about him, and subsequently the manager was alleged to have sent for him out of the workings, so that they could detect a supposed birth- mark (a bundle of kidney bean sticks on the small of his back), and having been satisfied of their mission they assured him of his uncle's good wishes to him, and they further presented him with a note of hand for L60, to be made payable to him on the 22nd day of August. This tall yarn soon spread throughout the locality and caused a good deal of talk. Our representative interviewed the supposed heir, who very readily handed him the letters which he alleged had been sent from his uncle." It was evident that the letters had not emanated from a rich man's house or his office. For they betrayed poor penmanship, bad spelling, and a complete absence of every simple rule of grammar. It was evident that it was a woman's hand who had scrupulously written them, and his answers to a few questions of the Rhondda Leader representative showed that he was either suffering the after effects of excessive heat that he was bent upon becoming famous on false pretensions. However, many believed in him, and many were the con- gratulations he received, and many a half- pint was drunk to his health, wealth and future success," to which he replied with perfect equanimity on every occasion. During his last few days' sta at Dinas, the telephone was used by his "uncle" to convey to him the tidings of the fabulous riches, and of the ss. Agnes May," that, was lying in one of Cardiff's dry docks. On the eve of the 22nd day of this month, the bogus heir was making great preparations to meet his uncle on the following morning at Sloan's offices. The old man," as he termed him, being punctual to time, it was of the utmost importance that he should meet him at his Cardiff offices at the appointed time, for if he failed, it was quite possible that he would for ever forfeit his "uncle's" good wishes. He made no secret of the valuable jewellery which his uncle had sent him—which were necessary to make his appearance acceptable to the old man and his subordinates at the docks. Other things had also been sent to him, which could be viewed by anyone on his return. Many wish to again see him. If ever he returns, he will certainly have a warm reception. His many friends and well-wishers (?) have watched each pas- senger train since his departure, that they may greet him upon his imaginary attain- ments. He is wanted in many quarters, and several disappointed business people would explain with a, tear where his uncle's" presents came from. If any of our readers find him, will they remind him that he is wanted ? Money prizes for Limericks. See page 5. u.r.v. LV /"('

Treherbert. We offer our sincerest congratulations to Mr. Hugh Hughes, G. & L., Treher- bert, upon his success at the Swansea, National Eisteddfod. Mr. Hughes is the composer of several successful solos and anthems, and, we believe, has previously been successful at our national institution. Mr. Hughes' composition was a, vocal quartet, set to light words in English and Welsh, the original to be in Welsh. The words for the quartet were written by Mr. D. H. Davies, conductor of the Tre- orchy Male Voice Choir, and the subject chosen was The Dewdrop." The follow- ing in connection with these words is well worth recording. The adjudicators upon the composition were agreed as to the merit of the music, but one adjudicator was of opinion that the verses were too heavy for the music. The award, which •

I was to have been made on Tuesday in the Eisteddfod week, was withheld until Friday, as, owing to the contention of this one adjudicator, the composition was submitted to Mr. Joseph Bennett, the eminent musical critic, his opinion to be accepted by the adjudicators as a final decision. Mr. Bennett pronounced the verses to be correct, and gave the opinion that the composition was fine and well worthy of the prize. Mr. Davies is to be congratulated upon this favourable criti- cism, and we hope to find the present success will stimulate these two young men to combine to produce further work of still greater merit.

II Cwmparc The marriage of Mr. D. J. Bumford and Miss Mary Hearne was solemnised at Paran Chapel, Blackmill, on Tuesday last, the Rev. D. Griffiths, the resident minis- ter, performing the ceremony. Mr. Bumford is an old inhabitant of Cwmparc, but has latterly been employed in an official capacity at the Bridgend Asylum. Miss Hearne is a native of Bridgend, and the young couple have settled down at that place. We wish them every pros- perity and happiness. The Cwmpare Silver Band have just concluded a tour in North Wales, under the conductorship of Mr. Ward. They visited Newtown, Llanidloes, Llandinam, and several other places, and had a good reception. The affair turned out a splen- did financial success. A Treorchy correspondent writes: —" I should like to call attention to the admir- able performance of our young townsman, Mr. Aneurin Edwards, in the baritone solo competition at the Swansea National Eis- teddfod. That Mr. Edwards has a voice of exceptional quality is well-known, but up to the present he has failed to annex the principal prize of the year. On this occasion, however, it was almost within his grasp, coming second out of 42 com- petitors. There is no doubt that Mr. Edwards suffered a little from hoarseness after a fortnight's tour with the Royal Male Voice Party, but strangely enough he was a big favourite with the crowd, and it is an amusing fact that a Pressman approached Mr. Edwards before the ad- judication and negotiated for his photo to appear in his journal next day as the winner. He was a. little previous, but some folks think he had admirable judg- ment." Money for brains. See page 5.

Gilfach Qoch. The Sunday School of the Primitive Methodist Church held their annual anni- versary on Sunday and Monday. A fine programme had been arranged by the superintendents, and the scholars per- formed their parts with much ability and taste. The singing was conducted by Mr. R. Jenkins, whilst Mr. W. Smifh presided at the organ. The pastor, the Rev. J. Whittock, Tonypandy, presided. On Mon- day, the choir and scholars formed a pro- cession, and marched the main streets ? headed by their own brass band, under the conductorship of Mr. R. Jenkins. The second annual eisteddfod, under the auspices of the Gilfach Male Voice Party, which is to be held on Monday, September 16th, promises to be a great success.
Tonypandy. At the Hippodrome, Tonypandy, on Thursday last, a grand concert was given by the Royal Oakeley Silver Band (Blaenau Festiniog, North Wales), under the conductorship of Mr. J. E. Fidler. This band has had a very successful career, being winners of the North Wales Chal- lenge Cup three years in succession; also over £3,000 in prizes. The band was assisted by Mr. Tudor Owen, A.R.C.M. (baritone), and Mr. Mark Thornton, the eminent comedian (winner of over 132 prizes and three championships). There was a good attendance. The items on the programme were thoroughly enjoyed by the audience, as was evinced by the recep- tion given to the band and artistes. Mr. R. O. Jones, C.P.T.C.L. (organist of Towyn Parish Church), fulfilled the duties of accompanist in a very efficient manner. The band have organised a series of con- certs in South Wales to aid the North Wales quarrymen who are suffering severely from the great depression in the slate trade. The band was successful in winning the first prize of E20 at the National Eistedfood held in Swansea last week. The many friends of Major Hill-Male will be glad to learn that his name will in future appear in the Official Quarterly Army List as Honorary Captain in the Army. We learn that Miss Maude Gold, the young Tonypandy violinist, has been earning for herself fresh honours. On -a, recent visit to London, she nlayed before Senor Guido Papini, the eminent violinist and composer. Senor Papini was so delighted with the child's playing, that

Ferndale. The funeral of Mr. James Lewis, 15, Lake Street (attendance officer of the schools of the district), took place on Monday, the 26th inst. Deceased, who> had attained his 53rd birthday, was one of the best known and most respected citizens, his labours and activities in the many and varied spheres of reform during a period of about 30 years' residence in the neighbourhood having secured for him a place in the hearts and memories of his numerous friends. His first religious con- nection at Ferndale was with the Welsh Independents at Trerhondda, rendering excellent service as Sunday School teacher and with other branches of the cause for many years. Eventually he left the strong and flourishing; cause at Trerhondda to help forward the weaker one at the Eng- lish Congregational, North Street, and it is here, in an act of generous and volun- tary sacrifice of this kind, that his many admirable qualities are shadowed forth, and the depth of his sincerity and love eloquently intimated to the mind. For over 18 years as secretary of the Congre- gatioinal cause- superintendent of the Sunday School, deacon, and other duties he laboured faithfully and well. Through a. six months' trying illness of neuritis his faith was strong and pure, and he bore, through the loving help of his dear wife and children, the pain with fortitude and great patience. He had served very satis- factorilv in the capacity of Attendance Officer for 25 years, and his conduct in this, as in all other departments of ser- vice, both official and social, is worthy of praise and emulation. Wreaths were sent by Mr. Michael, Tylorstown; Mr. and Mrs. Lewis, Duffryn; and the family. The funeral was a very large and representa- tive one. Among others present were the following attendance officers of the neigh- bouring district:—Messrs. Wm. Thomas (conductor of the famous Treorchy Royal Male Voice Party), Hopkin Rowlands (Tonyrefail), Thomas Jones (Tonypandy), and T. Watts Rees (Porth). These gentle- men, with Mr. Berry (Director of Edue^ tion) and Mr. T. Jones (accountant), acted as bearers. The mourners were Mrs. Lewis, Mr. Phillip David Lewis, Mr. Rees Lewis, Misses Cassie, Maud, Annie, Edith, and Elsie Lewis; Mr. Wm. Lewis, Cil- fynydd; Mr. and Mrs. John Davies, Bargoed: Mrs. Rees, Church Street; Messrs. David and Willie Stephenson (Cambridge University); Mr. and Mrs. Morgan Lewis, Pleasant Hill; Messrs. Madoc Jeffries, David Griffiths, and Jas. Morse. Among other friends present at the funeral were the following —Messrs- W. Parfitt, G. Childs, B.Sc., D. E. Jones (Tylorstown), Tom Davies (North Street), D. Hughes (Strand), John Jones (Frederick Street), Reed (sanitary inspector), Michael (Tylorstown), Lewis Watkins, Dd. Davies (bookseller), Thomas Kinsey (Duffryn St.), Morgan Williams (North Street), Howell Powell, James Burrell, &c. The choir was ably conducted by Mr. W. Davies (Hodges). The interment took place at the Ferndale and Mardy Cemetery, the Rev. B. Watkins (Penuel), assisted by the Rev. T. Evans (Bethany, Tylorstown), officiating. Touching and eloquent tributes were paid to the memory of the deceased, with exhortations to similar activities and sacrifice. Have you tried our Limerick Competi- tion P See page 6.

On Tues- day morning last, Miss Gold's father re- ceived the following from Senor Papini: 5, Soho Street, London, W., August 26th, 1907. With pleasure I write these lines to sa- that I had some days ago the visit here at the above address of the child Maude Gold, of Tonypandy, which was, of course, a musical one, as the child played for me two or three pieces on her little violin, and also she read at sight a difficult one. What I have to remark about her efforts is this: —The child is without doubt musical, her playing, though naturally not perfect yet, is in any case interesting, considering her age; and, of course, in the progress of a thoroughly musical edu- cation, and a, good tuition by an eminent artist-violinist, I have all the hopes for! her future successful career. (Signed) GUIDO PAPINI." It is our sad duty this week to report the death of Mr. William Lewis, 15, Kenry Street, Tonypandy.
