RESERVOIR ARBITRATION. [Continued from Page 7.] The Referee: I don't think it is in the least remarkable. It often, happens that these conflicting clauses occur apd have never been noticed. Mr Acland What is your view as a lawyer? Is this contract void, in existence, or has it been-determined?—Witness: When a solici- tor takes the opinion of counsel his own opinion is nothing. Couns-er opinion ought to be followed. The Referee: Perhaps you would not mind answering the question now. Mi-. Acland: Is your view that the contract is void, is in existence, or has been deter- mined ? Witness: I would rather not express an opinion. In the course of his cross-examination witness said the Local Government Board had never definitely refused to let the Council borrow more money. Re-examined: It was after a letter from the Local Government Board saying they agreed a fresh source of supply should be sought that the Council resolved to determine the contract. Mr. R. H. Tiddeman, M.A., gave evidence in support of defendants' case, that the site of the reservoir was unsuitable. He was a member of the Council of the Geological So- ciety, and had been engaged on the geolo- gical survey of England and Wales for 37 years. The hearing was again adjourned. WEDNESDAY. On Wednesday, Mr. Tideman explained the reasons why he did not think the site a desir- able one for making a reservoir.—Cross-exam- ined by Mr. Acland: Is the rock," he was asked, where this reservoir is, so permeable as to make it impossible for the site of a re- servoir ?"—It is not desirable to make a. re- servoir on such a rock. I will not go so far a4 to say it is impossible, because you could make the reservoir water-tight. Re-examined by Mr. Evans: As to the per- meability of this rock, the chief difficulty was apparently the disturbed nature of the ground and the cracks which you found?- yes. Mr. Williams Ymyr Davies, formerly sur- veyor to the Maesteg Local Board, who has been engaged on the reservoir site for some time, said he opened up a number of trial holes on the site to seek for clay. He found clay in about a dozen, of the holes. It was an area of good clay. Witness declined to work out figures as to the amount of stuff which would have to be cleared to get the clay. He had not been called on to do the sum before, and he would not do it now. (Laughter.) Mr. Acland: Shall I do it for yon? Mr Davies: Not for me. but this gentleman here (pointing to the official referee). (Laugh- ter.) Mr. William Thomas Chadwvn, assistant in the firm of Messrs. Middleton, Hunter, and Duff, engineers, was called to speak of the clay found near the site of the reservoir. Mr. S. T. Evans (examining witness): Have you had a large experience in puddle clay ? Witness: Well, not a large experience. I have had some experience with the New River Company. Mr. Evans: Most witnesses endeavour to magnify their experience. You seem to prefer to diminish yours. (Laughter.) MT. James Diggle, civil eneineer, said he had had 3-5 vears' experience in the construc- tion and administration of waterworks and works of a like character. He was consult- ing engineer to many corporations. He had examined the Maesteg site, and eave detailed evidence of faults and fissures he had found in the trench and tunnel. The strata were broken and dislocated: there was not one yard in length of a water-tight bottom throughout the whole of the, trench. The court again adjourned.
Thieves broke into St. Pancras Baths and Wash-houses, Kentish Town, early on Monr day morning, and stole the whole of Satur- day's takings and the proceeds of an exhibi- tion of animated pictures.
EDUCATION IN GLAMORGANSHIRE. TEACHERS AND PUBLIC WORK. APPLICATIONS FROM BRIDGEND AND GILFACH HEADMASTERS. A meeting of the Glamorgan Education Committee was held at the Gwyn Hall, Neath, on Tuesday. Dr. Morris presided. TEACHERS AND PUBLIC WORK. The report of the Elementary Education Sub-Committee contained paragraphs which stated that Mr. J. canniff, headmaster of the Evanstown Council School, Gilfach Goch, had applied for permission to attend the meeting of the court of governors of the University College of South Wales and Monmouthshire on October 18th, and ;.vir. J. G. Jenkins, headmaster of Bridgend Boys' Council fechool, for special permission to attend the monthly meeting of the governors of the Bridgend County School, of which lie is a member. With regard to Mr. Canniff, the sub-commit- tee recommended that while permission be granted him to attend the meeting on the 18th October, the regulation of the commit- tee prohibiting schoolmasters from attending meetings of public bodies during school hours be in future strictly adhered to. As to Mr. Jenkins, the sub-committee renorted that they were unable to depart from the regula- tion, and suggested that the time of meeting of the governors might be altered so as to take place outside of elementary school hours. Alderman T. J. Hughes said lie felt that if the committee had power to do so, something might be done to give permission to a teacher who could be of any dehnite service to the county upon a purely educational subject. The Chairman said tne regulation which had been adopted pi evented any of the teachers from attending meetings during school hours. Permission had1 previously been given Mr. Rhys Nicholas to attend the meetings of the N.U.T., but his opinion was that the new regulation upaet even that per- mission. Mr. Hopkin Morgan Isn't there a rule which allows the managers to give permis- sion ? Alderman Hughes: That is in a matter of urgency. Mr. T. M. Franklen (clerk): The managers have no power to give permission contrary to the committee's regulation. It is a pity that the exact terms of the regulation are not at the moment available. Alderman T. J. Huerhes moved that con- sideration of these paragraphs in the sub- committee's report be postponed until the next meeting, so that the exact terms of the regulation with regard to teachers attending meetings might be produced. If permission could not be given then all the teachers must be treated alike, but if any exceptions were to be made let them be made where the cir- cumstances justified. The motion was carried. COUNTY COUNCIL POWER. The Elementary Education Sub-Committee recommended that the proposals of the com- mittee as to the erection of new schools de- cide-d upon at their last meeting be reported to the managers of the respective groups con- cerned and that their observations be invited upon those proposals. Alderman T. J. Hughes moved the deletion of the recommendation. -Lie- thought it was an error in tactics to submit the proposals to the local managers. The nuestion whether the committee should go into a Voluntary school district was a matter of policy which the committee should retain' in their own hands. The committee might be seriously hampered at an inquiry bv the production by the opposition of a resolution passed by the managers that the school was not required. He earnestly hoped the committee would re- ject the recommendation. Mr. Evan E. Davies, Maesteg. seconded. Mr Llewellyn D. Howell thought the recom- mendation was a good one and hoped it would be adopted. He thought it was rather bad tactics for the committee to use their men to go around with a petition in favour of a public elementary school, as it give the Church party a wrong impression and stirred up feeling unnecessarily. He thought that when the wishes of the local peoole were not consulted bad feeling was stirred np, and :t was not the intention of the Education Act that such feeling should be created. Alderman Hughes's motion was carried. the mover remarking that Mr Howell's speech was the best argument in favour of it.
The New County Assessment. I SERIOUS EFFECT ON THREE PARISHES. Some time ago the Assessment Committee of the Glamorgan County Council appointed a valuer to value the Bridgend Union. In some parishes the valuation was consider- ably advanced, while in others it was con- siderably reduced. When the Great Western Railway Company found that their assess- ments had been reduced by the county valuer in certain parishes, the company, naturally, gave notice of appeal to the Union Assessment Committee, with the view of having their properties reduced in those parishes. The Assessment Committee was practically helpless, and the rates had already been made in all the parishes and mostly collected for the half-year ended in September last. To give a few figures, the following reductions in Great Western Rail- way assessments have been made in the parishes named hereunder:- Reduction. Coyohurch Higher £ 1,931 St. Bride's Minor 1:1.;333 Newcastle Higher R631 The two former parishes have a com- paratively low rateable value so that the amounts to be made up on account of the large reductions after the rate was made will be a real burden. At the last meeting of the Penybont Rural District Council the matter was taken up by the Rev. Eynon Lewis, and a special meeting of the Council has since been held to consider what steps should be taken to relieve those parishes. The Coun- cil, sitting in committee, has formulated a scheme, and this will be sent to the Local Government Board for their approval.
VACANT CORONERSHIP. FIFTEEN APPLICATIONS. A meeting of the Local Government Board Committee of the Glamorgan County Council was held at Cardiff yesterday afternoon, with Alderman William Llewellyn in the chair, to consider applications for the post of coroner for the eastern district of the county. There were fifteen applications from six medical practitioners, six solicitors, one barrister, one fishmonger, and one underground haulier. The intention had been to prepare a. "short list" of five, but when the committee came to the consideration of the qualifications of each applicant it was found that only two had stated them. Mr. Blandy Jenkins said that when the last coroner was appointed by the free- holders, who then made the appointment, it wawhold that no person was qualified unless he had land to the value of £ 1,000. The Clerk explained that this ownership was stipulated as security for the proper per- formance of the coroner's duties. It was finally agreed to re-advertise. stating the qualifications. with the amount of landed property necessary (as approxi- mately to the value of £ 1,000), and to con- sider the applications received in a fort- night's time. List of applicants:—P. Davies, fishmonger; Charles E. Edwards, so- licitor; W. T. Evans. consulting medical practitioner: J. T. Howell, solicitor; J. A. Hughes, solicitor: David Jenkins, under- ground haulier; William Miles, medical prac- titioner; David Naunton Morgan, medical practitioner; J. a.

It was not long before the Wednesday threequarters got going, and from a nice round of passing, Tommy Evans again scored in the corner. The kick failed. The Whartons were the heavier pack, but the Whartons quite held their own. Just before the interval Dent. intercepting, ran half the length of the field and scored for the Whartons. The try was converted, and the Wednesday at half-time led by a point. From the re-start several scrums were fought out on the half-way line, from one of which Tommy Evans broke oeautifully away, and, only having the full-back to beat, chose to pass to Arthur, who took the ball nicely, and scored under the posts, Dai Griffiths con- verting. Just after this, Muller got posses- sion and dropped a nice goal for the Whar- tons, and just before call of time Dai Griffiths scored again for Bridgend. The kick again failed. Final sm-re.

A large number attended an exhibition of Bibles at the Newton Institute all Monday afternoon, which was held under tie auspices of the local auxiliary of the British and Foreign Bible Society. Through the efforts of Mrs. Sibbering Jones, The Windmill (lion. secretary), and other members of the com- mittee, a large collection had been brought together. Tea was served during the afternoon and Mrs. Hargest (Nottage) was in charge of a stall of Oriental needlework and curios. from missionary centres. The exhibition was not only interesting, but highly instructive and represented the printing presses of the 16th, 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries, from Oxford, Cambridge, Edinburgh, London, Carmarthen, and Llanelli. Undoubtedly Newton. Nottage hi-> a wealth of old literature and Bibles, but the space avauable was not sufficient for exhibit- ing to the best ativantage, and time did not enable the visitors to enter very fully into the features of the various periods and editions. Some of the most rare were :—Mr. Wm. Rees, Railway-ter., very old but incomplete Bible, in imperfect condition; Mrs. Jenkins, Prys Owen, Cornelly, old black letter Testament; Mr. W. Williams, Philadelnhia-road, a Lord Wardour Bible; Mrs. John. New Inn, South- road, old Bible in good condition, with rare plates and apocrypha, and register; Mr. T. James, John-street, Kitto's illustrated, and three others; Mrs. Griffiths, Kingsleigh, Vic- toria-avenue, a seventeenth century Bible in excellent preservation, with plates, apocrv-ha and register Mr. Hardwick, Yorkley, South- road, and Bridgend. three interesting old Bibles in perfect leather binding: Miss E. M. David, Woodlands, Victoria-road, fine old Bible with brass clasps firmly fixed to leather thongs; Rev. David Evans, Newton, fine old family Bible, with plates; Rev. Crugfab Davies. Bible and rare edition of Milton's Paradise Lost" (17th centu-rv): Miss Forres- ter, John-street. Bible, representing the Scotch Pointing PVess (17th century). Many Peter Williams were sent in, also Matthew Henry, Hughes, Burkitt. and others: the British and Foreign Bible Society were well to the fore in 1st edition Jubilee and Cen- tenary volumes; many of "tile old Bibles con- tain the Proyer Book and Psalms, and several have the quaint lines- Steal not this book away for shame, For don't you see the owner's name. Mr. William Davies (Gwilym Glan Ogwy), a well-known book lover brought two Bibles, 17th century; Mrs. Wilson, Manor I arm, Newton, an illustrated "Book of Martyrs," very rare edition; Mrs. Roland Thomas, South-road, Porthcawl, large illustrated Bible, called "England's Greatness," a Royal edition, facsimile of the one given by Queen Victoria to Indian Prince. Amongst the modern. Bibles, Mr. Edgar Ware sent The Complete Century Bible": Mr. Williams, Llandogo House, Porthcawl, a British and Foreign Bible Society's edition bound in olive wood editions of JJaxter, Variorum, Duoglot, and Revised were there. with copious con- cordances and helps included. The firm of Virtue was represented by a very fine edition, illustrated, sent oy Mr. Bowen, John-street. Mrs. Thomas, Glen View, Newton, exhibited a number of old needlework book marks, in excellent coiifii-tioii also several -Bible' it is to be hoped that the committee wrll again organise an exhibition, to remain open for three days at least. We are sure it would be well appreciated not only by the people of the neighbourhood, but also by those of the surrounding districts. In the evening a well-attended meeting was held at the Newton Schoolroom, under the presidency of County Councillor G. Sibbering Jones. The meeting was opened by the Rev. E. W. Pearce. The Chairman, in an opening address, said the members of the local ladies' committee had shown great enthusiasm in their work, and judging by that splendid gathering, the enthusiasm had been contagious. All de- nominations were represented, and he was in- clined, like the Psalmist, to say. "How sweet it is to see brethren dwell together in unity." They had their liffle differences as sections of the Church, but he was elad that there were times when they could- sink those differ- ences and co-operate in the great work they had in hand. Through the British and Foreign Bible Society the Church would be enabled to fulfil the command, Go ye into all the world" he pointed out that every mis- sionary society was indebted to the Bible So- ciety for its translations. The increased missionary work meant increased responsibil- ity to professing Christians, and they should be more hearty in their support of the Bible Society than ever before. Miss Howe, Nowtoit, who is the treasurer of the committee, presented a report, which showed that the collections in the district amounted to t9 6s. 9d., and the net pro- ceeds of the exhibition j62 10s. Rev. Howell Powell, Pembroke, the depu- tation from the Parent Society, delivered a lengthy address on the operations of the So- ciety. He pointed out that though great work had been accomplished they had not distributed sufficient Bibles vet to supply only half the Chinamen of the world. He sub- mitted satisties showing what the Society had done for the various missionary societies, and he dealt in an interesting way with the in- crease of missionary work. All the sections of the Christian Church, he said, were united in this great work: though they carried dif- ferent banners they recognised that all pos- sessed the same Book, and worshipped the same Father. This Society more than any- thing else emphasised the unity which, after all, existed between the different bunches of the Church. Rev. B. C. Davies, in proposing a vote of thanks to Mr. Powell, said it was pleasing that all the denominations could appear on the broad platform of the Bible Society, and sink their sectarianism. In seconding, Rev. David Evans took the opportunity to congratulate Mrs. Sibbering Jones, and the other ladies who had worked with her, on the success which attended the exhibition of Bibles. An exhibition of that kind could not fail to stimulate the work of the Society in that district. The motion having been carried with accla- mation, Mr. Powell acknowledged', and, on his motion, a similar vote was accorded the chairman. Rev. G. Thomas closed with prayer.

New Organ for Llanblethian, Church.—We understand that it has been decided to pur- chase an organ for Llaublethian Church, the present instrument having: proved altogether too weak since the re-arrangement of the church. The. cost of the new organ is esti- mated at £250, and the Vicar has already re- ceived several subscriptions towards the fund.

The testator left his household and personal effects and klOO to his said sister absolutely, and he left the residue of his estate to his sister Mary for life, de&iring that she will leave the same to his brothers' and his sisters' children. MYSTERIOUS DEATH. Mr. W. R. Rhys (Aberdare), coroner, held an inquiry at the Union Workhouse, Bridg- end, yesterday afternoon touching the death of James Stone, a farm labourer.—George Thomas, farmer, Lhvynhelicr. near Cowbridge, said deceased had been in his employ for two months. He slept in the barn, the stable loft, or the lodging-house, and was addicted to drink. On the 30th September he had some money to go to the fair.—George Jeal, in the employ of the last witness, said he saw the deceased returning from the fair near the West Gate, when he appeared to have had a drop of drink. The next morning he saw deceased in the hay loft, when he complained of an aching head, but said nothing about an injuirv. As he did not get up all day, witness went up the loft at ni^ht, when he found he had a wound behind the ear. The loft was reached by means, of some stone steps, at the bottom of which he found some L blood.—William Harding, an inmate of the workhouse, said deceased died on Wednesday night. He told witness he fell over a quarry on Stormy Mountain.—The Coroner: Was he light-headed—Dr. Wvndhani Randall: He was unconscio.is the whole time he was here, —Dr. Randall attributed death to concussion of the brain. There was a bruise behind the right ear. and the ear was partially torn off. Deceased appeared to be about 50 years of age.-A verdict of Accidental Death was re- turned. THE FIRE BRIGADE.

At the conclusion of the business, His Wor- ship the Mayor (Councillor C. M. JL)avies) en- tertained the w hole of the Brigade, the com- mittee and officials to supper at Fireman Spencer's (the Duke of Wellington Hotel). Alter partaking of supper, served in an ex- cellent way. the Mayor proposed the usual loyal and patriotic toasts. Alderman James submitted The Cow- bridge Fire Brigade" in a very eulogistic speech, and Captain Tilfey and Fireman Bradbury responded. The Mayor, on. behalf of the Firemen, pre- sented to Captain Tilley a silver whistle, in an ornamental case, with treble chain and fittings, for fire chief officers. In doing so, the Mayor stated he had been asked by the Brigade to tell Captain Tilley the present was a token of the great appreciation the men felt for their captain, and they asked his acceptance of it as an assurance of their gra- titude for his devotion to their interests. Captain Tilley thanked His Worship for the kind things he had said, and the Bri- gade; also the firemen for their all too kind present, pointing out that they all in their several stations were doing just as much as himself in behalf of the town in training to become efficient in the service. Their kind- ness in making such a useful and very valu- able present made him the more anxious to discharge the duties he had undertaken in as efficient a manner as possible. The health of His Worship was proposed by Alderman John., who claimed that no one had filled the office of chief magistrate in a more capable manner than had Coyncillor C. M. Davies. The health of the hon. secretary (Mr. Gwyn) and the hon. treasurer (Mr. John David) Was given by Councillor J. Williams and duly responded to. The .musical and literary part of the evening's entertainment was supplied by Mr. C. J. Gwyn, Firemen Croom and Spencer, and Mr. W. T. Gwyn, and the mayor related a good story on "Strong drink and its supposed beneficial effects." which caused great merriment. A very pleasant evening closed by the singing of God save the King." BAXK MANAGER'S DEATH. As briefly announced in our last issue, the death took place suddenly on Tuesday, last week, of Mr. R. H. Hughes, formerly mana- ger of the National Provincial Bank, Cow- bridge, and afterwards in a similar capacity at ileterborough. Mr. Hughes was on a visit to Mr. Wallace, dwital surgeon, of Priestgate, Peterborough, and was apparently in the best of health. On Tuesday morning he sat reading his paper after breakfast, about 10 o'clock, when, without any warning he gave a slight groan and fell back in his chair. Help was immediately procured from the Infirmary, and efforts tiered to restore ani- mation, but without effect, it being appar- ent that death had been practically instan- taneous. We understand that Mr. Hughes had previously been attended by Dr. Walker for an affection of the heart, so that under the circumstances, an inquest was not con- sidered necessary. Mr. Robert Hugh Hughes was 57 years of age, and leaves a widow and nine children (five daughters and four sons) to mourn his loss. The deceased' gentleman went to Peterborough in 1897 from Cowbridge. xie was a thorough sportsman, and hunted with the Glamorganshire Hunt. While in Peter- borough he was a well-known follower of the Fitzwiltiam --otiitds. He had been keenly interested, Too, in music and in education, the Peterborough School of Art claiming his special attention. Before going to Cow- bridge Mr. Hughes was in Denbigh, and prior to that he spent seven years in the Cathedral village of St. Asaph, four in Beaumaris, and four in Birmingham. He remained in Peter- borough some seven years, and during that period he gained a wide circle of friends. His services were cheerfully given to both public and private undertakings and to their success his genial disposition and business capabilities in no small degree contributed. An eloquent proof of public appreciation at Peterborough was furnished, when in July, 1905, his removal to the managership of the branch of his company's bank at Holywell, North Wales, was announced. A movement was almost immediately set on foot, with the result that at a complimentary dinner Mr. Hughes was the recipient of a handsome gold watch and albert, a silver cake dish and a beautifully-illuminated address from a large number of his Peterborough friends. The funeral took place on Thursday after- noon amid every manifestation of the respect and esteem in which the deceased, was held. A most impressive service was held at the Cathedral, where Mr. Hughes had been a sidesman and a regular attendant. The Bishop of Leicester had previously expressed his regret to the relatives that an important engagement prevented his taking part in the service, which was conducted by Canon Phillips, D.D., and Minor Canon Roberts. As the funeral cortege entered the Cathedral it passed the representatives of three local Volunteer corps, in full regimentals, the de- ceased gentleman having been actively asso- ciated with the Volunteer movement. Among those present in the cathedral and at the graveside were: The Mavor of Peterborough (Mr. J. Batten. J.P.), the Deputy-Mayor (Mr. I. Whitsed). Alderman Clifton, Mr. Charles Vergette, Mr. J. H. Beebv. J.P., Mr. Henry Little. J.P., Dr. Jolly. ji>r. Croxford. Dr. Day. Mr. F. E. C. Stanlev (Barclay's Bank), Mr. F. W. Perry (Midland Counties), Mr. T. J. Barnes (Stamford and' Soalding Bank), Mr P. Steele (National and Provincial).

Rocket Apparatus Iiis-nection.-The recent inspection of the life-saving crew of this town was in every way 6atisfactory to the authori- ties. Captain Freeman, accompanied by the Divisional Officer of Coast Guards, congratu- lated the men on their general efficiency. and expressed his opinion that they had proved their ability to the fullest extent, and al- though the crew may be equalled by others, they certainly had no. rivals. Coast Guards Wallace and Mortly had proved them- selves to be successful trainers. Anniversary Sc-rvices.-The anniversary services of Bethel Baptist Church were held on Tuesday and Wednesday, the 15th and 16th inst., when large congregations, consist- ing of members augmented by friends of other ifleno mi nations in this town and district, as- sembled in the chapel. The Rev. Owen Davies, pastor of Bethel, officiated at the ser- vices, the first of which was held at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, and the others at 10.30 a.m., 2.30 and 6.30 p.m. on Wednesday. The preachers were the Rev. Charles Davies, Cardiff, and the Rev. E. Aubrey, Cardiff, instead of the Rev. W. Edwards, D.D., South Wales Bap- tist College. Considerable disappointment was expressed with regard to the unavoidable absence of Principal Edwards, who was in London attending the Welsh Church Com- missioii meetings. The Rev. E. Aubrey was in every respect an efficient and much appre- ciated substitute for the absent divine. Al- though the weather on Wednesday was ex- ceedingly bad, it had no effect upon the at- tendances. NATIONAL SOCIETY FOR THE PREVEN- TION OF CRUELTY TO CHILDREN. MEETING AT THE HAM. In connection with the above Society, a drawing-room meeting was held at The Ham on Tuesday, at 3.30 p.m. Numerous invita- tions issued by Miss Nicholl were responded to, with the result that a large assembly of guests met to liear an address upon the ob- jects of the Society. Miss Aylmer, of the Central Office of the Society, was to have been the lecturer on the occasion, but a be- reavement in her family prevented her at- tending. Her place was taken by Mr. Teesdale. Mr. Iltyd Nicholl was voted to the chair, and in a, brief speech, introduced the lecturer to the large audience, which com- pletely filled the great hall of The Ham. Mr. Teesdale gave a graphic account of the aims, methods, and results of xhe Society's work, and the desirability of extending its organi- sation in the district. He referred to the conditions of child-life in the poorer quarters of cities and large towns, and also explained the Society's vigilance in remote villages and its investigation, of cases among classes who are generally supposed to be above suspicion in the treatment of their children. The in- teresting address was listened to with marked attention. The duties devolving upon the Society are the prevention of public and pri- vate wrongs to children and the corruption of their morals, and to do all lawful things incidental or conductive to the attainment. of the objects of the organisation. The Society takes action for the enforcement of laws for the protection of children. Mr. Teesdale urged the desirability of promoting and ex- tending the work in the Llantwit Major branch of the organisation of which Mrs. W. H. Evans, Llanmaes, is the president, while her daughter, Mire. John Williams, is the able secretary. Mis. Ebsworth, Llandough Castle, president for Central Glamorgan, spoke in advocacy of the Society, and in a ve,ry forceful speech referred to work accom- plished and to be done bv the various branches. The Rev. W. A. Edwards, Rector of Llaiigaiil, addressed the meeting, and re- lated his own experiences of the Society. Mrs. John Williams, secretary of the local branch, gave an account of the efforts made and the support received in connection with this district. She explained thatHhe Society wToul# like to be assured of an annual sum sent in by this branch, even if the total was not large, rather than occasional contribu- tions. If a number of people promised, say, only one shilling each a year regularly, the amount would be a. permanent and reliable subscription for the help of the Society. April next would be the time for sending up subscriptions to the Central Office of the or- ganisation. and she hoped the guests present would in the meantime remember the import- ance of the Society and its valuable work. At the close of the meeting, votes of thanks were accorded to Mr. Teesdale for his excel- lent address, and to Mr. Iltyd Nicholl and Miss Nicholl for allowing the meeting to be held at The Ham. A collection was then made on behalf of the Society. Immediately afterwards, tea and an abundance of dainty cakes, sweets, and other good things were served to the visitors, among whom were friends from a distance and manv residents of Llantwit Major and district. The comnany dispersed about 6 o'clock, and all present ex- pressed their high appreciation of the very pleasant. meeting and the hospitality ex- tended to them by Mr. Iltyd Nicholl and Miss Nicholl.

A friend persuaded me to see you much against my will, as I had no faith in anybody, and a blessing it has been to me that I did so.
