OPERETTA PERFORMANCE AT BRYNCETHIN. On Monday week a Pastoral Operetta (by M A. Ward) entitled, I- little Boy Blue," was performed in the National Schoolroom, at Bryncethin, before a very large and greatly interested audience. The room was packed, and it was found necessary to give another per- formance on the following night. The artistes, from St Bride's Minor parish, under the masterly leadership of Mr Wyndham Bevan, A.C., acquitted themselves in a Lighly credit- able manner, and one and all deserved the com- pliments by the numerous and attentive listeners, who were greatly pleased by the rendering of the various parts. The spirit of the piece was well sustained all through, and when the curtain fell over the last scene, the hearty applause which greeted the performers amply repaid them for their efforts. Thanks are due to Miss L. Davies and Master Bevan for the instrumental part, to Mr Bird as stage manager, and others who rendered valuable assistance as peasants, etc.

T ALBACH. CHOIR OUTING.—The juvenile choir of the Welsh Calvinistic Methodist Chapel, with their conductor, Mr Richard Dyer, took au outing on Saturday last to Porthcawl, and were accompanied by their relatives and friends. Numberiug (50 in all, the party were couveyed in breaks supplied by Messrs Stephen Hughes and T Willams (l'aibacb). The weather at the start was cloudy and threatening, but it afterwards cleared kea/uttfiil aim fine. The choir en route sRiig inetrily several choruses. On raching their destination they moved down to the green sward near Porthcawl College, where they rendered part songs and choruses. Afterwards nuts sweets, &c, were distributed amongst the whole party. An adjourn- ment was then made to Mr Comley's restaurant. The repast over,they strolled down to the promenade enjoying the lovely view and refreshing air. \t 7,30 are-start was made, a halt being made on the way at the habitation of Mrs Yorath, Blue-street, Maudlam (who has seen 84 summers), and who being closely connected with many in the party was anxious to hear them sing the choir went through a few choruses, for which the venerable dame returned many thanks. A move was then made for home, which was reached at 9.30, all seeming delighted with the trip.
COWBRIDGE- THE CHURCH AND ATHLKTICS. That" little circular that emanated from the combined wis- dom of the Bridgend Nonconformist ministers, found its way into the peaceful precincts of Cowbridge, the result being a virulent harangue in favour thereof—i.e., of the circular, not of the sports-by the Rev Owen Jones, at the Baptist Chapel. Denunciatory declamation was a con snicuous feature of the outburst. L T -Temperance is a growing moral force in this town. And it is well perhaps that it should be thus, for it is not often that one meets with a town so studded with public-houses. The united temperance demonstration, which is to take place shortly, is being looked forward to with great interest. All the different associations will join in. including the recently-formed British Women's Temperance Society. Hitherto the endeavours of a few to organise such a field-day have been unsuccessful, but this year the event promises to be marked by a red letter day.

THE BRIDGEND EISTEDDFOD. Provided no unforeseen contingency hap- pens, the Bridgend Eisteddfod for 1894 promises to be a greater success than ever, and provided also that the weather will be in harmony with the season, the attendance should be a record one. Last year it will be recollected immense interest centered round the preliminary trial of strength between the famous Pontycymmer and Rhondda Male Voice Parties and also, though in a lesser degree, the appearance of Mr Dan Davies' Merthyr Choir, added to make the event exceptionally attractive from a musical point of view. It is gratifying to be able to record that the Eisteddfod of 1894 will not be behind hand in the supply of choral music, which after all is the feature that attracts and enthrals a Welsh audience. There may, perhaps, l>e an absence of that dramatic intensity that pervaded the thou- sands of up turned faces at the moment the adjudication was delivered in the male voice competition last year but where this year's competitions put last year's in the shade is from their numerical point of view. The number of entries is unprecedentedly large. especially in the music, and as several local choirs have entered, the interest evinced will no doubt be a guarantee that local musicians will attend in force. The entries in the aggregate reach the formidable total of 3.000. Additional interest is lent to the event from the fact that the President this year is Lord Dunraven, whose superabundant generosity in giving the c6100 prize in the chief singing C, z;1 "I competition for seven years, cannot but invoke the enthusiastic admiration of all classes. It is to be hoped that his Lordship will find it convenient to grace the gathering by his presence, as, if he does come, he is as sure of being accorded a warm reception, as the audience is sure to be favoured by a brilliant homily on the Eisteddfod.
FACTORY PROSECUTIONS AT NEATH. WORKING SHOP ASSISTANTS AFTER HOURS. At Neath Borough Court on Monday, Mr J. Arnold presiding, The Dynevor Engineering Company were summoned at the instance of Mr Augustus Lewis, Factory Inspector, with employ- ing a young man under the age of IS years, after legal hours, viz., at 10.5 p.m., on Saturday, 27th Mav.—The defendants, who pleaded gulty were finpd 10s and costs. Mr D. H. Lewis, draper, Neath, was similatly summoned for employing a female assistant at- his establishment after legal hours, viz., at 10.4.) p.m., on 27t,h May.—It appeared the girls were trimming a hat. Defendant stated he did not know that she was there as he was not on the premises at the time.-Defendant was fined 10s and costs. Messrs Williams and Co, drapers, Wind-street, were also fined 5s and costs in respect of two similar cases.
AN AWKWARD IMMERSION AT PENYFAI. I" They believe in "baptism by immersion" (writes a correspondent) even in such an out-of- the-way place as Penyfai, and believe in it mind you with a firmness so immobile as to put all other immersion devotees into the shade. Last Sunday afternoon a large crowd gathered at Smyrna Chapel and thence wended their way to the brink of the river Ogmore, to see if perchance salvation might be found some fatigued souls out of the nauseous propertyjof that hot-bed of valley sewerage. The minister (Rev W. E. Ha rris) took up the usual poeition of dignity by the river sidej and after the usual formalities had been duly observed the business of the day was pro- ceeded with. It had not gone far before an un- savomy incident marred the even tenour of the administrator's way--All the more unsavoury because it was the first time for Mr Harris to per- form such ceremony. It so happened that one of the young ladies in the act of finding salvation slipped in the river, and no doubt, fearing lest the billows might sweep her out of existence, clutched hold of the Rev gentleman with both her hands with such vigour that he also fell in and under- went a second immersion. Accounts differ as to the precariousness of this aquatic adventure, but one thing is certain-the pastor of Smyrna will not soon obliterate from his memory the incident that attended his first appearance by the water's edge as a riparian gospel-teacher.
FFALDAU HOTEL, PONTY- CYMMER. OUTGOING BANQUET. On Wednesday evening, by the invitation of the landlady, Mrs Lewis, a number of her friends assembled at the hotel to a banquet on the occasion of her leaving the valley to take over the York Hotel, at Bridgend. During the two years or so Mrs Lewis has been at the Ffaldau Hotel, she has proved an ideal hostess, and has well maintained the good reputation of the house. An evidence of this was afforded in the representative company of Wednes- day evening, who had come from all parts of the Vallev to partake of Mrs Lewis' hospitality for the last time as 'Mine Hostess' of the Ffaldau. Mr Tom Lewis, the incoming tenant, Tade an able and popular chairman, and among others present were the Rev J. S. Jenkins, Dr J. L. Thomas, Blaen- garw; Mr EF-supeirntendent Thomas, Bridgend; Mr C. Hansard, Bridgend Mr Blandy; Messrs Edward Thomas, Thomas Roberts. J. Evans, Beehive, T. J. Evans, B. Noyle, — Williams, Newport, A. Lawrence, B. T. Bale, Charles Hunt, Crooke, Evan Williams, David Llewellyn, Bridgend, Baa-nall Weeks, John Llewellyn, Jeremiah William's, Roderick, Cerddor Davies, &c. The repast was of a most ample anu sumptuous character, excellently served and waited, and in every respect worthy of the culinary skill of the pr oprietress. The recent addition to the hotel in the shape of a capacious and well-arranged billiari-room admirably served the purpose of a banquetting;hall, and here a fair number of guests were entertained without experiencing any of the disagreeableness cf overcrowding. After dinner was over the company settlad down to a most enjoyable social evening. The toast of the evening, that of the outgoing tenant, Mrs Lewis, was enthusiastically received. The speakers, one and II all bore testimony to the excellent business qualities of Mrs Lewis, and the expressions of good-will for her future success were unanimous. Mrs Lewis annronriately responded, and gave expression to the regret (she felt at leaving Pontycymmer. The health of Mr Tom Lewis, as the future land- lord of the houss, was also warmly toasted. A number of exc llent songS and recitations ren- dered by various members of the company at inter- vals helped to complete a most enjoyable evening, and the party separated at midnight. The whole of the fish, fruit, and vegetables used at the banquet were supplied by Mr Gibbon, fruiterer, &c., Bridgend.

BUILDERS AND BOARD AT BRIDGEND. AMUSING CORRESPONDENCE. At the ordiniry meeting of tin Iridoreil T; ci Board hold on Tuesday evening, be lerk read the following correspondence which h icl passed between himself aid the hon secretary of the Bridgend Builders' Association — • Bridgend Builders' Association. May 22, 1894. The Bridgend Local Doard. Dear Sirs,—I am instru-ied to forward to yoar board a resolution passed at a meeting of the above association held last nigh,, which was as fuiiows — That the members or the deputation appointed by the association to examine the ac JlUUt8 and vouchers of the board. ;md advertised to be open for inspec- tion prior to the audit, at the Local Board's offices, were informed by ar. officer of the board that there were no such documents on view on the preruist 8 t Tiie Associatiau is therefore compelled to pro&es against this irregular and illegal proc du e, aud desires to be informed when and where it is proposed to hold the audit above referred to.—Yours iaith- fully, I 'P. J. Thou as, Hen. Sec.' 'Bridgend Lo.-al tfoaid. iriagend, 'May 26, 1894. Dear Sir,—The Chairman has handed me yonr letter of the '!lud inst (directed to the board, but addressed to him) on behalf of the Bridgend Builders' Association. I am directed to request that all future < ommunicat.ions to the bo:»rd shall be directed to me. With reference to the resolution referred to in your letter, I have out that your association, as such, has no right to examine the accounts and vouchers of the board. I have instructed enquiries to be made into the nr'.rtt.r. and find that two ratepayers went to the bourd offices oue dny Inst week. The Surveyor was absent, and the Collector intormed them that his accounts were open to their inspection, but the accounts and voucher" which I keep as Clerk were not. there, but could no doubt be seen at mr offices. Px.th the g-en- tlemen having been men. be' of the board, of course knew this to be so, although tui' notice of audit necessarily fixes the offices of tb" bo.ird as the place of inspection. Neither of the gentlemen, iiewever, caiae to see me on the matter, nor did they make any representation to me that they were desirous of inspecting the vouchers, occ. Had they done so I should have been most pleased to have afforded them every facility. Witii reference to the concluding poitou of the resolutien, I have to say that the audit stands adjourned to the 5th prox. at 12,30 p.m., and due notice of this has been given, as required by the Act. and to add that the board and its officers find it difficult i indeed to fully comulv with all the requirements of the Public Health Act in consequence mainly of the 'irregular aud illegal procedure adopted by a few persons with whom their official duties bring them in contact.J'-ind who persiteu ti y ignore the board's bye- laws, as instanced by the fact til,1t the Works Com- mittee were compelled to refer bacK four separate oi plans submitted to them by the Hon. Sec. of your association as being both irregular and illegal' naving regard to the Public Health Act 187o and to the bye-laws of the board.—Yours faithfully, T. J. HrGHE-. Clerk • P. J. Thomas. Hon. Sec. • Bridgend Builders' Association.' Builders' and Artisuns" Association, 'Bridgend, June, 1 bt»4. Bridgend Local Board Aie.it. Dear Sir,—In reply to yours of the 25th of May, I am directed to state as fellows Tint the depu- tation cf ratepayers (as you prefer the term] whe called at the advertised place on Thur.^iay, May 17th. between the hcurs of three aud four in the afternoon were informed by the Collector that there was not a single voucher or bill of any kind on the premises the only thing be had to saow was the rate-receipt book. If the Clerk is the person res- ponsible, his nesrleet in tUb particular renders him liable to penalty, although it might be imagined from the insulting commuuication received that he is the injured party. The audit was advertised for the 19th May, IS!14, at the board's offices, but was not held then, and it is uot within the knowledge of any ratepayer connected wi:h this association that any advertisement has appeared of the postpone- ment. I am further requested to inform you that the association is not concerned with the private affairs of their Hon. Sec., and surely the board ought to be able to ensure that its business is con- ducted in a regular and legal manner, and tha.t its officers, being to ail intents and purposes, the ser- vants of the public, are instructed to treat all com- munications from ratepayers, whether individuals or representatives, with at least decent courtesy.— Yours truly, 'P. J. THOMAS, Hon. Sec. The Clerk, Bridgend Local Bo&ra.' The Clerk said he sent the Collector to acquaint the ratepayers in question when and where they might see what they required, but they did not come afterwards or attend the audit. One of the gentlemen made him a present of his compliments (laughter). The Chairman You forget, they were afraid of being- kicked out. The Clerk, explaining this allusion of the Chair- man's, said when the Collector suggested they should go to the Clerk's office they said they would be on private ground and might be kicked out. The matter then dropped.
VACCINATION AND SMALL- POX. The following is the continuation of the letter on the above subject which partly appeared in our last issue :—" I regret to confess that I have wasted many hours over Blue Books containing anti-vaccination arguments. I have seen Mr Wheeler's solid block of small-pox deaths in an unknown population, his century uf war as a cause, and his smah-pox inoculatiou coining forward as a cause when the other fails, and shifted backwards and forwards in years as the emergency of his argument requires, his years of destitution appearing on the scene when all the others fail to coincide with the facts. His assumption is amusing that if nobody died of small pox in a given year, the same number of deaths would have occurred, Providence killing you off with something else, protected by vaccination from small pox, and that before State interference should take place. the case should be so over- whelming that it couid not be argued both ways. The argument in favour of the soundness of the earth are pretty strong, and yet Hunpdeii and his followers argued the other way. so this would not have been proved to Mr A. Wheeler's satisfaction. If we waited until anything were proved to his satisfaction, nothing would ever be done, and State interference with evils would never be resorted to. His views also as to the ethics of manipulating statistics are refreshing. Mr Tebb travels over the four quarters of the globe to find his occasional disasters. Disasters some-times accrue from boiling kettles, but we still drink tea. As E. W. must have a good deal of spare time on her hands or she would not indulge in these augmentative excursions into a barbarous -tu country so far from her home, she might occupy her time in making a statistical enquiry as to the relative disasters from boiling kettles and vaccination, of course neglecting the relative numbers of those who boil kettles and of those who are vaccinated.—I am, &c., HUM AXITY.

THE BRIDGEND CRICKET CLUB CRITICISED. TO THE EDITOR. SIR,—Class exclusion is all very well in its way and the keeping aloof of the plebeian portion cf the human race from the patrician section thereof may be commended as being in keeping with the fundamental teachings of social ethics. But then there are times when these things are carried too far-when the legitimate limit is exceeded. In this category must be included the practice of having communities represented by a select few, who are not reflective of the feelings or indicative of the capacities of the community as a whole— plebeians and pirtricians, rich and poor, foppish and unfoppish, dressily showy and dressily plain. To make a further sub-division, when a team of cricketers is selected to play and takes unto itself the name of the town to which it is indigenous, it should, in order to justify its comprehensive- designation, be representative of all classes cf that town—that is to say, it should be representa- tive of the capacity of the town and not of its finery and fine linen, collars and cuffs, and the latest cut in cricket outfitting. Is this the case with the Bridgend team ? Can it be called repre- sentative of the town whose name it has the courage to arrogate to itself ? Dare any of the heterogeneous aristocratic atoms that constitute the present team answer this harmless interroga- tory? He would be a bold man who did, and a bolder man still who ventured to justify this reprehensible method of representing—or mis- representing—the collective cricket talent of the town. Isn't it time that this sort of thing was put a j stop to If not. then if a number of the horny- handed sons of toil leagued together in Bridgend at the present moment, and formed a cricket club they would have as much right to call themselves the Bridgend Cricket Club as the team known by tiiat name at present has. Aye more, for they could be trusted not to go to Tondu, Southern- down and Cowbridge, and other places too numerous to mention, for spurious recruits. Many Bridgendites saw Morriston team inflict a defeat on Bridgend last Saturday. Did they notice the teams cosmopolitan character ? Did they see some of the men play in their every day clothesDid they notice the plebeians fraternis- ing with the patricians? To be sure they did, and what inference did they deduce from these observations ? That the team had a right to be called Morriston, of course. On the other hand look at the home team. We will say nothing of the wholesale pratice of inoculation the team with so many budding aristocrats from the fair and lovely Vale and the rough and uncouth valleys. But we take the case of one player only. The sight of this batsman attempting to hold his bat was enough to make the (iods weep. And if the Gods wept what would men do Why laugh of course, for weeping cometh by thinking and laughter on the impulse of the moment. Now this phenomenal player was not a Bridgendite but a stranger actually drafted from a neighbouring village What a reflection on the young men of Bridgend to be sure Fancy a group of cricketers living in the town whence this stranger came discuss- ing this matter in the street corner saying unto themselves Bridgend beat Cardiff. Humph It must have been a lucky affair if the town can't find players without having to obtain the services of an outsider who doesn't know how to holdabat;" And the sting of it is there are plenty of batsmen in Bridgend whose capabilites no one knows of, for all human beings not being of the masby" type, they are only looked at with eyes of disdain if they venture to go on the cricket field, and as for getting selected to play in a match, high presto you might as well expect an alchemist to melt stone and make mustard out of it. If they don't reform, the combined forces of Bridgend, Tondu, Llansannor, Cowbridge and Southerndown will fall like lucifers 'neath other clubs besides Morriston and Llanelly. I COMMON SENSE.
