CORRIS. PRESENTATION TO MR. H. DAVIES, J.P. On Monday, the 28th inst, a Public Meeting was held at Reboboth Chapel to present Mr Humphrey Davies, J.P., Abercorris. and family, with a testi- monial, as a token of respect for their services in connection with the above church. The meeting was presided over by Mr D. Ifor Jones, Post Office, who in his opening remarks pointed out the unique connection which had existed between Mr Davies' family and the church, during a portion of three centuries. It was his grandfather, Dafydd Hwm- phrey, that was the means of establishing the Cal- vinistic Methodist cause in that district, and he, with others, endured a severe persecution on account of their religion. Even a regiment of soldiers was sent up by a country squire, and the military fired their rifles on all hands, to frighten the penau gryniaid." His son, Hwmphrey Daf- ydd, was as eminent in his zeal and influence as his father, and even more so, and the grandson, Mr Humphiey Davies, has followed closely in their steps, and has proved a worthy son of worthy sires. So this house has been the shelter of the ministers who have officiated at this chapel, and others, from the commencement of the cause to the present time, and it angurs well also for the future. The meeting was then addressed by Mr Richard Owen, Cwmygog, who gave a pithy report of the cause in the district from its commencement. The Rev J. J. Evans, Aberllefeni, pointed out the very efficient manner in which Mr Davies has conducted the singing ot the congregation for the long period of over forty years, and emphasized the good effect which a good singing has upon the service. Mr Morris Thomas, as one who had spent over 25 years as a co-deacon with Mr Davies, testified to his good qualities in that capacity. Then came the pre- sentation, which consisted of a splendid illuminated address, beautifully designed and engraved by a clever Welsh artist. This contained the photos of Mr, Mrs, and Miss Davies, at the top, a photo of the inside of the chapel within the wide border on the left, and a photo of the outside of the chapel at the bottom. It consisted also of a Queen Anne afternoon silver tea service, beautifully engraved. This was presented to Mrs Davies (Miss Davies being indisposed), by Mrs Jane Morris, Garleglwyd, and the address was presented to Mr Davies by Mr W. Jones, Garneddwen-two of the oldest members of the church. Poetic addresses to the recipien 8 were given by Llefeni, Mr Richard Owen, and -Air H. S. Roberts, Board School. The Address was read out by the secretary, Mr John Lewis, Frondeg, which was in Welsh, as follows:- ANERCHIAD CYFLWYXEDIG I Mr. HUMPHREY DA VIES, Y.H., Abercorris, a'r Ten In.

IFOR JONES J Ionawr, 1901. The Rev John Roberts, pastor of the church, then summed up the object and lessons of the happy event, in a very humorous speech. The choir led by Mr H. S. Roberts, sung appropriate music during the meeting, whilst Mr John Lewis presided at the harmonium. After further remarks by the Chairman, a most pleasant and edifying meeting was brought to a close by prayer by Mr Rhys Owen (W.), Bronrneirion. A telegram was read from the Rev Afonwy Williams, expressing his regret for his unavoidable absence.
