PENLLWYN. PROTEST.—Much indignation prevails in this neighbourhood against the Vale of Rheidol Rail- way Company running trains on Sundays. It is to be hoped that the Sunday service of trains will be abandoned. NEW YEAR'S CUSTOMS.—To signify the advent of the New Year ,the time-honoured waits were observed in by the young people of the neighbourhood. Parties were formed and went about the village singing: appropriate tunes. INFLUENZA.—This malady has been rather common in this place during the last few weeks, but fortunately .the cases are not dangerous. Its effect is clearly seen as the congregations of the Sunday and weekly meetings where the seats of many faithful worshippers are vacant. BENEVOLENCE.—There is none who keeps in close touch as regards sympathy and sentiment with his native parish thanPrincipal Prys, M.A., of Trefecca. Last week he sent a handsome gift to his sister, Mrs Morris, Pandy, tor distribution among the deserving cases in this place. It is hardly necessary to add that such timely generosity was much appreciated by the recipients. CHURCH SERVICE.—At 6 p.m on New Year's Day a service was held in Capel Bangor Church. The Goginan choir rendered two special tunes, and the children were catechised in a portion of tho- Scripture by the Rev E J Davies. The Vicar gave a short and appropriate address, in which he urged all those present to faithfulness and purity of life. Mrs Rees and Miss Saycell presided at the organ. After service all the children again assembled at the Schoolroom, where they were presented by the Vicar with oranges &c. Melus moes mwy. TEA PARTY.—Through the generosity of the Vicar the Rev M Morgan, the choir members of the Bangor and Goginan Churches were entertained to a sumptuous tea at the Schoolroom on New Year's Day. At four o'clock in the afternoon close upon one hundred persons sat down to well arranged and attractive tables. Praise is due to the ladies who attended at the tables. They were bent on making each individual as happy as possible; and thanks to their good arrangements, everything passed off without a hitch. They comprised the following ladies-Mrs Rees, Mrs and Miss Burdett, Miss M C Lewis (Tynllidiart), Miss James (Fron), Miss Humphreys, Miss Strickland, and Miss K Leeke. Tea over, the centre of the attraction for the children was the Chrismas tree given through the kindness of Madame De Bal.. After the Christmas tree had been lit up the room presented a charming appearance, the glowing faces of the children being in harmony with the elaborate and tasteful decorations. Every child received a present from the Christmas tree. A hearty vote of thanks was accorded the Vicar for his kindness, and to the ladies who so ably presided at the tables. ENTERTAINMENT. The annual literary and musical meeting was held at the Board School on New Year's Eve. These meetings have been very popular and have produced excellent results in past years.
