[ Cwmparc, The news of the death of Maggie Ann Middleton on Sunday afternoon last came as a profound shock to the people of Cwmparc. She was the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Evan Middleton, her father being the manager of Park Col- liery. She had attained the age of 26 years and was cut down in her prime, her womanly charm and lovable nature having endeared her to all who knew her. She commenced ailing a year or two ago, and in spite of skilful medical attendance her health deteriorated day by day, and her ill-health reached its final stage on Tuesday evening last, when she became alarmingly worse and never afterwards rallied. A beautiful characteristic of her days and nights of suffering was the cheery and optimistic confidence with which she looked forward to ultimate recovery, and the patient, uncomplaining spirit in which she suffered acute physical pain. Within a, few minutes of her end she smiled reassuringly at her grief-stricken parents, and the last words she spoke were fervent with solicitude for the comfort of her mother when she would have" inherited her Kingdom." The esteem in which "Maggio" was held in the locality was apparent in the number of sympathetic calls made during the days following her death. There was a pathetic scene in Salem on Sunday night when the pastor referred touchingly to her death, and said how the church would miss her genial smile and ever-joyous word of greeting. She was a faithful member of the choir, and frequently sang in the quarterly meetings of the Sunday School. Her death leaves a gap in local social life which will be difficult to fill, and our heart goes out in deepest sympathy to her grief-stricken parents, brothers and sis- ters. The funeral took place on Thurs- day, tho Rev. James Davies officiating, and was attended by a huge concourse of people. Very successful anniversary preaching services were held at Soar Chapel on Saturday, Sunday and Monday last, the last-named day being what is now locally recognised as Federation Day." The nulpit was occupied by the Rev. Rhagfyr Jonas, Treorchy, and Miss Davies (Efengyles), and the preaching throughout was impressive and abounding in hwyl." Collections were made in aid of the build- ing fund, and the congregation was gratifyingly large at each service, espe- cinlly on Monday, when a holiday in the collieries and fine weather afforded out- door attractions. The success of the annual tea party of Salem (W.B.) Church on Thursday after- noon last was for the first time in history marred by the vagaries of the Glerk of the Weather. The rain poured down piti- lessly throughout the day and effectually put a damper (literally) to any pretensions to gaiety and joyous froli oing in summer costumes, which seem the indispensable adjuncts of the chapel" tca-flght." Finan- cially, however, the tea, was a great suc- cess, and thus, at least, were the hearts of Secretary J. R. Meredith and Treasurer John Lewis made glad. THE present generation suffers much from Teeth trouble, but dentistry has made great strides, and much mav e done now to improve the appearance of Teeth very far gone.

Tylorstown. The funeral of Mrs. Elizabeth Morgan, the beloved wife of Mr. Thomas Morgan, East Road, Tyiorstown, took place on Saturday last. Deceased, who was 74 years of age, had resided at Tyiorstown for the last 32 years, and was highly respected by all who knew her. A large concourse of people attended the funeral, especially the old inhabitants of the place. Immediately following the remains were: —Mr. Thomas Morgan (husband); Mr. Caleb Davies (son); Mr. and Mrs. T. Ash-, ford (son-in-law and daughter); Mr. and Mrs. Evan Morris (son-in-law and daugh- ter) Mr. and Mrs. John Richards (son- in-law and daughter); Mr. and Mrs. Dd. Morgan (son-in-law and daughter); Mr. and Mrs. Jonathan Davies (son-in-law and daughter); Mr. and Mrs. D. 1. Davies (son and daughter-in-law). Great sym- pathy is felt in the district for the bereaved relatives, especially Mr. Caleb Davies, deceased's son, who had returned a fortnight ago for a "visit from America, where he had resided for the la.sb twenty years. The Rev. Rowland Hughes, B.D., officiated. The Rev. HI. Phillips was aJso present. Out of six competitors at the ambulance competition for D. Davis and Sons' Shield, open for D1. Davis and Sons' Collieries, No. 8 Ambulance Brigade were successful in securing the third prize. Mr. Dunston, of the Pontypridd Col- legiate School, officiated at Horeb (W.B.) on Sunday last, when he delivered two excellent sermons.

Femdale. Notices having been tendered at the Ferndale Collieries on the 1st of July to terminate contracts with the employers at the end of the month owing to non- Unionists, we are pleased to note that the officials of the Federation are doing their utmost to avert a strike, by ferreting out the defaulters and guilty parties. But the state of things, though much is being done, is far from satisfactory, many non- Unionists being still outside the Federa- tion. At the commencement, of the month it was estimated that about 160 non- Unionists worked at Ferndale. It is feared that a week or two at least of a strike will take place, if not longer. We are pleased to record another suc- cess attained by one of our young men, in the person of Mr. R. E. Michael, A.M.I.O.E., formerly of Tyiorstown, and now Tutor in Engineering at Limerick Technical Institute, who has recently passed the Board of Education's examina- tion in Mining with First Class Honours.

Pentre. Special services were held on Sunday last at Bethel (P.M.) Church, Albert Street, when three instructive sermons were delivered by Mr. J. Steadman, Brynmawr. There were large and appreciative con- gregations. On Monday, the Sunday School tripped to Aberavon, and the weather being delightful, an enjoyable day was spent. An open-air meeting, under the aus- pices of the local branch of the I.L.P., was held near the Council Offices, Pentre, on Tuesday evening, when addresses on Socialism," by Mr. and Mrs. Ayles, Bir- mingham, were eagerly listened to. Ques- tions followed. We rejoice in being able to announce the recent success of Mr. Trevor B. Davies, the third son of Alderman E. H. Davies, J.P., who, at the early age of 22, has successfully attained the degree of M.R.C.S., L.R.C.P. Alderman Davies' second son, Dr. Ivor Davies, is also making smart progreslSi as house physician at the Royal Free Hospital, London. We wish both every success in their honourable careers. We regret having to chronicle the death of an old and respected resident of Pentre, in the person of Mr. Win. Hoskings, whose demise took place on Friday last, after a lingering illness. Deceased had carried on a successful business at Pentre as a, blacksmith for a, number of years, and was a prominent layman in the local Wesleyan Church. The funeral took place on Wednesday at Aberavon Public Ceme- tery, the Rev. J. E. Jones, superinten- dent of the Rhondda Circuit, officiating. There was a large attendance of mourners and friends at the final obsequies. An accident of a serious nature occurred on Saturday morning at Carne Street. It appears that whilst Alfred Spillcr, a mason, wasi engaged in repairing the roof of some houses, a portion of the roof gave way, precipitating the unfortunate fellow to the street below. He sustained severe injuries to his spine. Dr. Rickards was soon in attendance, and had the man con- veyed home, where, we understand, his condition still remains precarious. Monday being a general holiday with miners, advantage was1 taken of the respite by several Sunday Schools in enjoying their usual treats and outings. Siloh Sunday School, numbering about 4G0, spent the day in delightful Penarth, their enjoyment being only marred at the end of a long day by the fact of about 50 "trippers" being left behind—the latter being. so engrossed with their pleasure as to forget the time of their train's depar- ture. Nazareth Sunday School, breaking past tradition, snent tho day at home. A tea, prepared by the ladies of the church, was partaken of in the vestry, followed by games, &c.. on the pleasant slopes of Pentwyn, where the children were regaled with sweets, and the elders treated them- selves- to sundry poses before the camera. We are pleased to find that Mr. James Davies, A.C., and his choir are again on the warpath. Pentre, in past years, always possessed successful choral com- binations whose services have been requisitioned by Royalty and peers. We trust that Mr. Davies and his young ehoir will go forward, and bear proudly aloft and unstained the splendid banner of Pentre musicians. At a recent sale, a site which would just allow space for the erection of a couple of shops fetched the enormous price of E390. Great interest was taken in the wrestling match at the Tivoli on Saturday last, when Dai Paul succeeded in throwing Tom Rees twice out of three falls. b Dr. Gomer Lewis, the veteran lecturer from Swansea, delivered one of his charac- teristic lectures to a large assembly at Nazareth Chapel on Thursday last. The rev. gentleman took for his subject Abraham Lincoln." In the unavoidable absence of Alderman E. R. Davies, Mr. J. Young Evans (Treorchy) occupied the chair, 'l.lie proceeds of tin; lecture were in -aid of Mr. David Joues, Lla.ufoi.st Street. Ton, a deacon of the above church, vlio has been in ill-health for several months past.

Porth. The ratepayers of Porth have just had the proverbial straw put upon the camel's back, in the shape of increased assess- ments. This has caused some murmurings, ana we learn an appeal against them is about to be made. A Ratepayers' Asso- ciation is very much desired in Porth. Who will the organiser be f The Baptist Chapel, Hannah Street, held its Sunday School outing last Mon- day. This event had been postponed from the previous Thursday owing to the bad weather, and, as usual, the scholars paraded the main streets, headed by the Oymmer Brass Band. They, then pro- ceeded to the field (kindly lent by Mr. Charles Jenkins), where they enjoyed themselves to their heart's content. An unpleasant incident occurred near the railway station on Wednesday morn- ing last. Some children were playing on the road, when one child got struck in the eye by a stone thrown by one of his companions. This may result in the loss of one eye. Just now the word carnival" seems to be a sort of a. mysterious password in Porth. The constructors of the various attractions in the procession are moving about in a most mysterious manner. But notwithstanding all this secrecy, we may inform our readers there, is likely to. be a parody on the new tramway system, in the shane of a tramcar for service on the Birchgrove and Charles Street section. However, we hardly think that this new enterprise will be such a. success as the orthodox tramway; the prohibitive prices will not, we think, appeal to the masses. We learn there is a, likelihood of a repetition of the recent successful trip to London held under the auspices of the Porth and District Chamber of Trade early in August. The latest betting by a, prominent shopkeeper is £1 to a goose- berry that there will not be an empty seat on the next corridor express excur- sion from Porth to London. J.

Blaenrhondda. The Blaenrhondda, Wesleyan Sunday School held their anniversary services on Sunday last, under the conductorship of Mr. T. J. Pritchard, with the usual suc- cess. The work was creditably performed and all pains and labour were rewarded by the crowded congregations drawn to the place, and the pleasure beheld upon their faces as they sat and listened to the splendid renderings. Great improvement is noticeable year by year at these ser- vices.
Blaengwynfi. The anniversary services of Villici-s Road (English C.M.) Sunday School were held on Sunday last. Mr. John Jones was conductor of the singing. Tabor Sunday School held their quar- terly meeting on the samo day, ably con- tracted by the pastor, the Rev. J. Wil- liams. Conductor of choir, Mr. T. D. Williams; organist, Mr. E1. Eli as. Miss M.

Tonypandy. On Monday last, a grand pigeon shoot- ing handicap took place on the Mid- Riiondda Athletic Grounds. The prizes were J':10, L3 and £ 1, the entrance fee being 7s. each. There were record entries, and the shooting was of a very high standard. The gate was an ex- cellent one. The Sunday School anniversary of the English Congregational Churoh took place on Sunday, when three excellent services were given, consisting of the usual reci- tations, anthems, choruses, &c. Mr. John Hoskings, of Ystrad, presided over the services in his usual genial manner. Mr. George Symmonds wielded the baton, while the accompanists were Madame Blodwen Williams and Mr. Sam Thomas. Special mention should be made of the solo, Across the Sea," sung by Miss Rose Morgan, Tonypandy. The solo was sung with a humming accompaniment by the choir, and was greatly enjoyed. The trio by Miss E. Hawke, Miss T. Irish and Mr. Geo. Symmonds was highly appreciated, and requested to be sung at afternoon and evening services. Miss Sarah Thomas Thomas, Street, sang "A Picture of Jesus very effectively. Among those who contributed to the programme were:- Annie Sutton, Mary Amesbury, Susie Widiams, Gladys Morgan, Bessie Symmonds, George Lock, Emlyn Howells, Willie Morgan, Willie Randle, Lizzie Ann Jones, Sarah Thomas, Arthur Richards, Lillian May Rowles, Ivor Symmonds, Home Randle, Anwen Morgan, Gertie Bowen, Emily Louise Willy, Geo.

On Tuesday, the scholars had their annual tea and outing, ■this time spent at Aberavon, and a very enjoyable day was spent. Mr. Geo, Lock (treasurer), Mr. D. T. Richards (secre- tary), and Mr. A. Sutton (superintendent of the school) deserve the highest praise for their share in carrying out their arrangements. <

The Salvation Army, Treorchy, held their gymanfa fawr" and field day on the New Athletic Grounds on Monday last. The event commenced at 12 o'clock, when Brigadier G. Holmes, P.S., assisted b-, Major Findlay, D.O., and a number of officers, opened the proceedings in the large marquee. A great thanksgiving ser- vice was subsequently held, conducted by Brigadier Holmes, P.S.j and Major Findlay, D.O. All hands were present. Captain Harding was in charge of the arrangements. From 1.45 to 3.15 p.m. there was a great junior demonstration, which consisted of Indian club, tambourine; swimming, ambulance, Japanese and other drills. Special songs, &c., were given by the Pentre juveniles, also Tre- herbert and Treorchy juniors. Ensign Alexander, D.Y.P.S., presided, and Ensign Crane was in charge of the arrangements. Following this, a Welsh meeting was held, which was conducted by Adjutant Roberts and other Welsh Later in the evening, a great review and kaleidoscopic march-past was held, when each officer mustered their own corps and band. The Treherbert, Trealaw, Mardy, &c., Bands played on the special bandstand. The last and the most interesting feature of the day was the massed musical festival. This was presided over by Brigadier Holmes. The programme was as follows:—Opening song, "Guide me, 0 Thou great Jehovah" prayer by Major Findlay; march "Cadet," united bands; march, Fidelity," Mardy Band: selection, Great Masters," Tre- alaw Band march, Under the Colours," Heolfach Band selection, Good Choice," Treherbert Band; march, united bands selection, Mardy Band: solo, Bro.

A grand tea meeting was held at Horeb I Chapel on Monday and was very well aLCendod. The following, who presided at the tables, deserve credit:—Mrs. Evans (Primrose Villa.), the Misses Williams (Melvin House), Mrs. W. M. Jones and Miss Jones, Mrs. D. L. Short and Miss Williams, Mrs. Jones (Pentwyn) and Miss Jones, Mrs. Pook, Mrs. Thomas Lewis and the Misses Lewis. In the evening, an entertainment was held, and judging by the sound of applause which greeted the various renditions, there was an excellent programme. At the commencement, Master Jack Kinsey and Miss Ceridwen Pook crave solos, which were followed by selections on a gramophone. The last part was devoted to a competitive con- cert, in which Jack Kinsey, Fred Power, and others were prize-winners. Mr. Geo. Pook accompanied, and Mr. J. T. Short, B.A., presided. Tabernacle Choir spent an enjoyable day at Weston-super-Mare on Monday, and Bethlehem Sunday School tripped to Portheawl. It is with profound legret that we chronicle the death of Miss Winifred Michael, the 13!-year.uld daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Michael, of Stuart Street, Treorchy, which took place last Sunday afternoon. Deceased suffered from appendicitis and peritonitis. She underwent an operation on Sunday and came off successfully, but later a collapse took place, and death occurred at 10 o'clock at night. Much credit is due to Drs. Armstrong (Treorchy), Martin, Car- diff (specialist), Barret; Owmparc), Good- win, and Nursie Morris, who performed the operation. The bereaved relatives wish to specially bestow credit upon Dr. Armstrong, who attended to his work very attentively. Much sympathy is felt in the district for the relatives in their very sad bereavement. Only six months' time has elapsed since the death of deceased's sister occurred. The funeral will take place to-day (Thursday). Dr. Duff lectured at the Girls' School on Thursday last. The meeting was very well attended. CLARKE'S MELOX, the Perfected J ) Food for Dogs.

LiberaS League for Pentre. Young Liberals Waking Up. A movement has been started at Pentre which, it is hoped, will be productive of much, good. At least, its supporters are animated by the utmost sanguiuity as to- its success, and if the enthusiasm that was manifested at tho initial meeting on Friday evening last counts for something, its future is assured. The Liberals of Pentre—and especially the younger section—have felt for some time past that nothing is being done to propagate the grand principles of Liberal- ism, for which our fathers so valiantly struggled. They complain that the Labour 'and Liberal Association is, always except- ing the regularity and punctuality with which its agent collects the annual sub- scriptions, practically dead, and that whereas the Socialists are making a bold bid for the sympathies of the electors, and carry on a well-thought-out and active campaign, no effort is being made to countercheck these advances, and no steps are taken by the existing Liberal Association to educate the young people of the Rhondda in the principles' and othios of Liberalism. Indeed, it is not the Socialist campaign that constitutes the only menace to the Liberal faith, as it is well-known that the Conservative Party, or to be more correct, the agents of Tariff Reform are equally assiduous in their attentions to the constituency, and have held several meetings, in which the tenets of Protection have been vigorously preached. Considerations such as these have, there- fore, moved a, number of young Liberals to action, and a meeting was called by Mr. Arthur Timothy, at the Popular Restaurant, on Friday evening last, to consider the advisability of forming some organisation which would have the two- fold object of educating young men in the principles of Liberalism, and to act as a countercheck to advances of Tariff Reform and Socialism. Mr. Ei. V. Dlavies presided, and ex- plained at length the object of the meet- ing, and it was unanimously resolved to form a Liberal League. The following were appointed provisional officers —Pre- sident, Dr. W. E. Thomas vice-presidents, Rev. J. W. Matthews and Mr. E. V. Davies; treasurer, Mr- 1. T. Rees; secre- tary, Mr. Arthur Timothy. Another meeting -will be held 011 Friday evening, July 24th, to draw up the constitution, drafting of rules, &c. We understand that the new organisation has already had a magnificent response in the district, and applications for membership are coming in freely. The membership subscription is 2s. 6d. per annum.

New Goijciliation Board. Sequel to Glamorgan Company's Secession from Coalowners' Association. We understand that the new indepen- dent association to be formed as a conse- quence of the secession of the Glamorgan Coal Company from the South Wales and Monmouthshire Coalowners' Association will consist of two representatives of the three colliery companies, namely, the Cambrian, the Glamorgan, and the Naval. It is probable that Mr. D. A. Thomas, i>i.P., will be chairman, and the other members will be Mr. Robert Forrest, Mr. J. H. Thomas, Mr. Mitchell Innes, K.C., Mr. Leonard W. Llewelyn, and Mr. T. T. Callaghan. The workmen will be invited to elect a similar number of representa- tives to form the Conciliation Board, but in anv case the new organisation feels itself sufficiently strong to. deal adequately with any labour questions that may arise. It will be remembered that under the old Cambrian Conciliation Board that existed a few years ago the independent chairman exercised his powers as arbi- trator in the event of a disagreement among the employers and workmen. Another feature of the new association, distinguishing it from the old, will pro- bably be that no lion-Unionists will be employed at the collieries.
