Porth. Palm Sunday was gloriously fine, and especially favourable to the procession of Sunday School scholars of St. John's, St. Paul's and St. Luke's, who. headed by the Cymmer Colliery Brass Band, under Mr. G. F. Martyn's conductorship, paraded from St. Paul's via North Road to Britannia, afterwards returning via Hannah Street to St. John's Church for a special service at 2.30. Collections were made en route for the Porth Cottage Hos- pital and Cardiff Infirmary (per special collecting boxes kindly lent by Councillor W. T. Davies, Brynbedw) and the offer- tory at the service was devoted likewise. St. John's was packed, and a very hearty service was gone through. The preacher was the Rev. D. J. Thomas, B.A., curate of Tonyrefail; the Rev. W. Thomas (vicar of Porth) read the lesson, and the Rev. R. J. Martin (St. Paul's) intoned the Sunday School liturgy. The massed choir, under the conductorship of Mr. William Boundy, gave a very creditable rendering of Caleb Simpson's anthem, Trust in Him always "j soloist, Mr. Alf. Jenkins. The organist was Mr. Edward Evans (St. Paul's), and a section of the Cymmer Band joined in the accompaniment. The turn- out of the Sunday Schools was a magni- ficent one, over a quarter-mile long, and the pretty banners wantoning in the breeze, the beautiful strains of the music —from the choice selections of sacred adaptations which Bandmaster Martyn always has in store for these occasions- all these were inspiring. It was also very gratifying and encouraging to see the bystanders and cottage dwellers along the route dipping their hands into their pockets with pleased alacrity, and bestow- ing their donations in the best possible spirit. Quite a substantial amount should accrue from this special effort. The Salem Young People's Society is constantly catering interesting and varied matter to its members. Last Thursday, Miss Edwards (sister of the Rev. John Edwards, pastor) read an excellent paper, entitled The Zenana Mission in India." As a result of the very real portrayal which Miss Edwards gave of the woes of the poor and crushed women of India, the missionary spirit was rekindled in the good ladies of Salem, and they resolved to collect funds to aid the mission. A committee was banded for the purpose. The paper was afterwards discussed by Messrs. W. Harris, Frank Evans, George Bowen, T. Watt Rees, W. Evans (John Street), and the Rev. J. Edwards. The chairman was Mr. J. Lewis. A most interesting lecture on Egypt was given in the vestry of Porth (W.C.) Chapel on Wedneslay by Mr. D. Evans. Aberdare. Material effect was given by some excellent lantern slides, which admirably illustrated the subject matter. REFRESHED FEET! Sounds strange, doesn't it? And yet if you wear HUGHES'Boots your feet doit.. get sore and tired, but are actually refreshed.—HUGHES & SONS, Stores, 54, Hannah Street, Porth
