LOCAL NEWS. DON'T FORGET that W. C. Edwards' great Drapery Sale id now on. Opposite Town-hall- Bridgend. 1258 OBITUARY.—Two old members, of the Taber. nacle Welsh Independent Chapel, have just passed away-viz., Mrs Richards, and Mrs Lewis' Cheltenham-terrace. The first-named was the oldest member connected with the chapel, and her demise will cause a papable gap in the con- gregation. CONGREGATIONAL CHAPEL.-On Thursday eve- ning, in connection with the Young People's Guild-an integral organization of the above chapel—the Rev H. T. Andrews, B. A., of St. Paul's Congregational Church, Swansea, gave a very interesting and edifying lecture on "books, and how to read them." Mr William Powell presided. A COMING TREAT.—A musical and miscellaneous entertainment, including a new collection of Jarley's Waxworks with new figures and new fun will be held at the Newcastle Parish Roomey on Tuesday evening next, at 8 p.m. It promises to be a rare treat, and as the prices of admission are reasonable and the object of the gathering is a deserving one, people should attend in myriads- 1299 FOOTBALL.—The following team will represent Bridgend against Maesteg to-morrow (Saturday), at Maesteg: Back, Ivor Thomas three-quarters, J- C- Thomas, T. Emery, E. Deere, J. Jones; half-backs, Ivor .Tames and B. Gregory forwards, Davies, Pritchard, Harvey, Adams, Hayman, Deere, Morgans, and James. OBITUARY. We regret to announce the death of Mr Samuel Evans, which occurred at Bridgend yesterday (Thursday.) Mr Evans was a well- known tradesman and resident of the town. He leaves behind him a widow and family with whom are the sympathies of the townspeople. TUB RIFLE VOLUNTEERS.—Announce a dance for the 4th Febuary next. The Volunteer "hops," always well arranged and admirably managed, have been stamped with the hall mark of success, and there is no reason why the forth- coming dance should prove an exceptions to the general rule. "Tom, DICK, AND HABBY" is the title of the farcical comedy which will be performed by Mr Charles Hawtrey's famous company, originally pro- duced at the Strand and Trafalgar Theatres in London. The piece has since been played in the principal theatres in the large towns throughout the kingdom by the same company which is visiting the Town Hall, Bridgend, meeting with great success everywhere. In fact, the comedy is pronounced by Press and public to be one of the funniest ever produced. A contemporary says :_«« The play is brimful of humour, of the most pronounced kind, and few three-act farces, the modern mode of presenting this class of drama, can claim to rivet the interest of the audience, as does this latest pro- duction of the farcical comedy school. Genuine broad farce, free fromoffence,rollicking, genial, and pungent is to be found in every episode. The author has hit upon a happy theme. Confusion gets more confounded as the play progresses. The story is simplicity in itself, but upon it the author has engrafted the most racy and laughter-provoking situations. The part of "Tom" is played by that clever actor, Mr Frank Curzon, who succeso- fully pourtrayed it at the Strand Theatre, London, and a charming and accomplished actress in Miss Carrie Cronyn takes the part of Daisy Armitage." We refer our readers to the advertisement in another column. The company will visit Blaengarw on Wednesday next.
