Because Miss Liebmann's concert at Bridg- end was not well1 patronised, a correspondent asks, Are Bridgend people milsical Did a-nyone ever know a con-cert to be a success1 in the town, which was not run by a certain set, or for which the aid of a small army of ticket- Belfers was not enlisted? Forthcawt seems to be enjoying a second summer. There are now to be seen in bloom lilac trees, geraniums, roses, primroses, wall- flowers and' other kinds of flowers. Straw- berry plants also are flowering. Tomatoes are also dcing very well, and some splendid scarlet runners have been plucked. The Brid^e-nd' Pensions Committee have de- cided to advertise for a clerk who can speak Welsh. As the clerk will not be required to personally interrogate applicants, this stipul- ation savours of ol'ann ishness. It will, by the way, disqualify several good Welshmen unable to speak the vernacular who intended to apply. There are some good oeople left, even in Cardiff, in spite of the "dirty Linen" the local papers have been washing in' public about their own town. A Porthcawl young lady was in the city on Saturday last, and lost her purse. The lady's name was inside, and a Cardiff gentleman who found* it immediately wrote the young llady of his find. A Baengarw resident wrote to the Coun- cil complaining about a defective drain. I think you have an odd way of doing business," he commented1, and Dr. Parry told me that there was a special meeting called to considler this very point." Mr. T. C.

Copies of United States newspapers to hand contain; glowing reports of the performances of Madame Hughes;-Thomas's Welsh Ladies' Choir, which is evidently taking town after town by storm. There are only two objec- tions to the reports. The one is the persis- tent statement that the choir belongs to Car- diff, though different members hail from Coy- trahen.

FATAL ACCIDENT AT MAESTEG. On Wednesday Mr. Alfred John. Whitting- ham. of 62 St. MichaelWoad, Maesteg, met with a fatal accident at the Ton-hiir Colliery by a heavy stone falling on him from the roof of his working-place and killing him instan- taneously.
A NANTYMOEL SENSATION. ♦ ALLEGED ATTEMPTED SUICIDE. A sensation was caused at Nantymoel on Wednesday evening when it was reported that Mr. Sidlney George Adams. aged 30, of Ogwy- street, had' made an attempt on his life by cutting his throat with a razor. Mr. Adams was missed during the afternoon, and his brother found him in the stable at the back of the premises lying en the ground uncon- scious with h:s throat cut and a razor lying at his side. Dr. D. J. Thomas was at once summoned and attended to the injured man. The windpipe had been severed. but fortun- ately the large arteries had escaped injury. Mr. Adams had lost a large quantity of blood, and had he not oeen discovered would soon have bled to death. Dr. Thomas inserted a number of stitches in the wound, and the patient now lies at his home iir Ogwy-street in a very weak condition from loss of blood. The sad affair has evoked widespread sym- pathy. as Mr. Adams belongs to a family long established in the district and held in the highest respect. Some vearsago he went to South Africa, and remained there until about 12 months ago, when he returned and opened business as a grocer at Nantymoel.
COLONEL GASKELL'S GAME. SINGULAR PROSECUTION AT COW- BRIDGE. WELL-KNOWN FARMER CHARGED WITH TRESPASS. Considerable interest was evinced in a case at Cowbridge County Police-court on Tuesday in which Thomas Watts. Llanniihangel Place, a well-known farmer, was summoned for tres- passing in search of game, the proceedings being instituted at the instance of Thomas Mainwaring, gamekeecer to Coionel Gaskeli. Mr. J. C. Gasikell appeared to prosecute, and Mr. V. Gwyn (Messrs. Gwyn and Gwyn, Cow- bridge) was for the defence. The keeper stated that on October 6th he was at Baron's Pit, where Colonel Gaskeli had: rights, at about 2.20 p.m., accompanied by P.C. Tarr. Hearing some whistling witness walked a. little distance to ascertain the cause, and found Mr. Watts standing IN A SHOOTING ATTITUDE. Defendant had three dogs with him, which were working. "You are still doing a bit of sporting here," witness remarked, and de- fendant replied that he was only looking tor a wounded partridge, whicli had flown over from his field. Witness said, "Are you s'ure it is not a pheasant you aie looking for? I just saw a pheasant come in here." Witness left the defendant. Oil returning a few minutes later he found Mr. Watts in the same place, another man being with him. Here are the feathers." defendant shouted, and witness, on seeing the leathers indicated, replied They are pheasant's feathers." Wit- ness declared that no shot had been fired for half an hour orevicusdy. Replying to Mr. Gwyn, he said Mr. Watts did not appear to be looking for anything; he was standing as if waiting for a pheasant to rise. Witness watched him for several minutes. Mr. Watts was the occupier of the land for the purposes of pasturage only. He did not inquire who the man accompanying Mr. Watts was he did not knew that he was gamekeeper to Mr. Brain. Mr. Watts did not inform him that he was looking for a partridge which Mr. Brain had shot on his (defendant's) land. Witness saw a pheasant come over from Mr. Watt's field. He did not ask w'hat the other man was doing there, as he had' no gun. P.C. Tarr, who said he was ferretting with the previous witness, agreed that no shot was fired for at least half an hour before the keeper saw Mr. Watts. Mr. Gwyn I sun-nose yon could have been too engrossed in your ferretting to hear a shot 130 yards away?—I don't think so. We were merley waiting for rabbits to come out. Mr. Stockwood (magistrates' clerk): Ferret- ting is not an interesting sport to me. THE DEFENCE. Addressing the Bench for the defence, Mr. Gwyn explained the circumstances under which the defendant was on the land, con- tending that he had a right to follow a wounded partridge on to the land over which Colonel Gaskeli had rights. Defendant stated that at his invitation Mr. W. H. Brain and Mr. Rickards', of Cardiff, came over to Llanmihangei for a day's shoot- ing on October 6th. They were shooting rab- bits in the morning, and after lunch he asked! them if they would like a shot at a partridge. They agreed, and accordingly he took them to the turnip field at a quarter to two. A covey of partridges rose—there were six or seven in aill-and Mr. Brain fired. W itness could see that one bird was wounded, and it flew in. the direction of the Baron's Pit. where it seemed to fall to earth. Barons Pit was in wit- ness's occupation, on 'a sub-lease from Mr. Evans, Sigginstone.. Witness told Mr. Brain that he would go down to took for the bird "as Colonel Gaskeli has the shooting rights there." Before go'ing down he took the cart- ridge out of his gun, and he did not take a dog" with him. As he walked! down the ad- joining field looking for the bird he heard a shot and a rabbit came through the hdege followed by the dogs. Then the keeper ap- peared, and asked' witness what he was doing there. He explained to him that a part- ridge wounded in the turnip field had flown across to the Baron's Pit. The keeper asked. How fa.r is the turnip field from here?" and he replied1, About 1.50 yards." The keeper then went away, and witness returned to Mr. Brain and! told him of what had taken place. Mr. Brain said they had a perfect right to search for the wounded bird, and he accord- ingly directed his own gamekeeper to return, with witness to look for it. Thev continued the search, and' when Colonel1 Gaskeil's game- keeper again appared he raised no question. By Mr. GaskeII The bird in question was the first shot that day. Had you any reason to believe the bird was dead ?— I thought so. And you think you have a right to go on any land to look for a dead bird?—Yes, or after a wounded bird. I have seen it done many times. Do vou suggest you have any shooting right over that land?—Well. I am the occupier. Witness denied that he had the docs working in the cover. I am very careful." he added, because he has threatened to do for me some time back." Yon say you took the cartridge out ot the gun. Why didn't you leave the gun behind, if you thought it advisable to take any pre- caution?—I didn't think much of it at the time. Now, Mr. Watts, I sucrtrest to you that you were not after a partridse at all, but that you put a pheasant up on vour own land and fol- lowed it to the Baron's Pit?—No. We didn/t see a pheasant at all. During further cross-examination, defen- dant declared1: I don't kill pheasants out of season, either, as has been done there." Asked why Mr. Brain and Mr. Rickards were not present to five evidence on his be- half. he said they had promised to be there, but Mr. Brain had a shoot ini party and Mr. Rickards was filling an important appoint- ment. Mr. Gwyn said tint unfortunately, he had only been instructed in the matter a short time previously or he would have taken steps to secure the attendance of Mr. Brain and Mr. Rickards. If the Bench, would like to hear their evidence he would apnly for an adjourn- ment. CASE AD J OTTRNUD. The Chairman (Mr. F. W. Dunn): We are not satisfied., and we think Mr. Brain and Mr. Rickards should be called justice to Ml". Watts and to the keeper. Mr. Gaskeli: I submit there is plenty of evi- dence at present to justify a conviction. The Chairman That is for us to judce. Mr. Gaskeli Here's a man on the land with a gun and with dogs, and he is found in a shootine attitude. The Chairman said the case would be ad- journed for a month. Mr. Gaskeli: Then I should like Mr. Gwyn to give me an undertaking that lie will sub- poena both Mr. Kickards and Mr. Brain; otherwise I will do so. Mr. Gwyn gave the undertaking asked for. '=

The Clerk stated' that he had) written Dr. James stating that the mauoagem strongly objected to h01 1, meetings earlier in the month tor the purpose of signing the pay sheets. This month, in accordance with the managers' wishes, he signed the pay sheets himself, and forwarded them to Cardiff, but the sheets had been returned with a request that he would get them signed' by the Chair- man at a meeting of the managers. He did not know whether the managers would agree to meet earlier in the circumstances. Alderman Llewellyn saw no reason why the managers should not continue to hold' their meetings on the last Wednesday in each month. How could they be expected to cer- tify pay sheets before the 23rd of each month when the amounts we're not due until the 31st. The object of the change was that teachers should be paid as early as possible after the first of each month, and. of course, it was desirable this should be done. But he did not think everybody should1 be ineon>- venienced and why something irregular shadd be. done in order to bring that about. As long as the accounts were paid a few days after the 1st of the month,-there was no cause for complaint on the part of the teachers, and he did' not think they were com- plaining. SCHOOL CONCERTS. In accordance with the resolution of the managers at the last meeting, several bead- teachers now submitted' accounts of concerts held in connection with the schools. It ap- peared that in some cases the surplus was ex- pended on the purchase of pianofortes, etc., for the schools. Replying to a member, the Clerk stated that head-teachers of schools where such con- certs were held ewer bound by the regulations to submit accounts to the managers showing the receipts and expenditure. It was resolved to write to the Education Committee suggesting that head-teachers should be requested to furnish a complete list of all articles purchased out of the proceeds of such concerts. CLERK ON HIS DEFENCE. The Clerk stated that the Education Com- mittee had been investigating the cause of the closing of the schools in the Ogmore on July 13th, on the occasion of the annual miners' demonstration at Porthcawl. The headmas- ter of the Wyndliam School and Mr. T. W. Job, the attendance officer, had been called upon to appear before the Education Com- mittee, and now an effort had been made to saddle the blame upon him (the Clerk), inas- much as he had not informed the head- teachers that no holiday was granted to the schools. He had received a letter from Mr. Frankien, the dierk to the County Council, on the subject, and he had1 replied expl'aining exactly what took place at the meeting of the managers. Continuing, the Clerk explained that an ap- plication came before them for a holiday to the schools at Blaengarw on July 13th, as all the Sunday Schools were holding their an- nual outings, and similar applications from Blackmill and Glynogwr were granted. These were the only applications received', but in discussion Mr. Jacob Edwards mentioned the miners' demonstration, and suggested that a holiday should be granted to the Ogmoie Schools. No resolution was passed, or even proposed. What subsequently happened was that some of the teachers sent a petition to the local managers, and they granted' permis- sion- to close the schools. The matter was onlv mentioned casually at the managers' meeting. Mr. Jenkins said he remembered distinctly what took place, and be agreed' with the clerk's version. The Chairman It was explained1 at the fol- lowing meeting of the managers that a peti- tion was sent round. The Clerk: Yes; I had nothing to do with it. Alderman Llewellyn said that when the at- tendance officer appeared before the Educa- tion Committee to answer for the part he took in the matter, the Rev. W. Saunders persis- ted in the statement that an application had been made to the managers, though he (Aid. Llewellyn) had no recollection of it. Mr. Saunders adhered to his statement that the managers considered an application, and that, in face of their refusal, the teachers in the Ogmore closed the schools. This was a I sore matter with the Education Committee, and they had been doing all they could to fasten the blame on someone. The head- teacher and the attendance officer had been able to clear themselves as to what part they took in the matter. It occurred to the members of the committee that if an applica- tion had been made to the managers for the closing of the schools, it would have been the duty of the clerk to reply to the head-masters pointing out that the holiday would not be al- lowed. He had informed: the committee, however, that he did not recollect any appli- cation. In further discussion, it was pointed out that the managers had no authority to order the closing of schools except at the ordinary meetings. Alderman Llewellyn remarked that this- should have been well known to the head-mas- ters who sent round asking for permission to close the schools. Mr. Lynch Blosse said that if any resolu- tion had been passed at the meeting of mana- gers, it would appear on the minutes. A resolution was passed endorsing the clerk's letter to Mr. Frankien. A HITCH AT LLEST. H.M. Inspector called attention to the over- crowding at the Pontyrhii School, and iw- quired what steps the managers proposed] to take to relieve the pressure. Mr. T. Williams said he bad been given to understand that a hitch had occurred with regard to the site which it had been proposed to secure at Llest, owimr to a question be- tween the agent to the Duchy of Lancaster and the agent to Mr. Henry Lewis, Green- meadow, in regard1 to the ownership of the land. Alderman Llewellyn proposed that a depu- tation be appointed to wait upon Mr. S. H. Stockwood, the agent to the Duchy, on the I subject, and this was agreed' to. GLYNOGWR APPOINTMENT. A letter was read from Dr. James stating I that the letter from the managers with regard to the appointment of a headmaster for the Glynogwr School had beien laid before the Education Committee, but no order was made. They were re-advertising the post of headmistress. TRANSFERS. During the meeting several applications for transfers were considered. The Primary Inspector expressed a hope that the managers would not countenance these applications unless the circumstances were exceptional, because they really amounteGJ to headteachers attempting to choose their own teachers. Alderman Llewellyn said there was no doubt this sort of thing disorganised the schools. Head teachers should be content with the teachers sent them.
--< COWBRIDGE. The Market.—There was a good attendance of butchers at the Market on Tuesday, when Mr. T. J. Yomveith conducted a sale of fat cattle, sheep and lambs. Trade was fairly brisk, fat cattle being disposed of at prices varying from £15 to £18 per head. One hundred lambs entered by Mr. E. Akers, Pen- trebane, averaged 30s. Nursing Association.—Through an error a. donation of £12 made to the funds of the sociation by the Misses Culverwell, of Great House School, Cowbridge, being the proceeds of a theatrical entertainment by the scholars of their school, was entered tn the annual re- portandi statement of accounts for 1907-8 as a donationl from the Cowbridge County School. The reports and' accounts had been printed1 and distributed before the error was discovered. Baptist Church.—Services of thanksgiving for the in-gathering of the harvest were heM; on Tuesday at jxamoth Baptist Church. There was a Wrelsh prayer meeting in the afternoon, and in the evening Rev. David Davies, Penarth (late of Brighton) delivered an appropriate sermon. There was a large congregation, and the service was of a bright character throughout. The choir rendered some anthems in a creditable way, Mr. J. D. Evans conducting. Mr. Morgan Jones was ot his usual place at the organ. Rugby Football.—On Saturday, the Cow- bridge ruggerites" met St. Tyler's, Cardiff, on the Cowbridge enclosure, being defeated by a dropped goal to a try. It was a nice even game, with many interesting episodes, and the homesters hardly deserved to lose. The homesters' only try was scored' by D. J. Evans, after a clever break away and "dribble by T. M. Jenkins. John played well at back for Cowhridge. as did also P.C. Stockford at half.—On the 22nd inst., Mri Arthur Spencer's XV. met a Mid-Rhondda team, captained by Mr. W. M. Llewellyn, the famous interna^ tiomal three-quarter. A pleasant game re- sulted ini a win for the visitors by eight points to nil1. Association Match.—Cowbridge Association football team journeyed to Barry on Saturday to fulfil their fixture with the Barry Dock Al- bion's. The match was played in windy weather. The first portion of the game was of an even character, both teams having hard lines in failing to score. In the second half the hbmesters had -much the better of the ar- gument, the visitors lacking cohesion, and the match resulted1 in a win for Barry by five goal's to two. V. Gwyn and C. H. Thomas were the scorers for Cowbridge, the latter netting a penalty. Gwvn was undoubtedly the best player on the field, his defensive work being brilliant. Cardiff Institute will be the visitors to-morrow (Saturday), but Cowbridge hope to preserve their ground record, intact. Town Council Election.—Saturday was the last day for receiving nominations for the Town Council election. As anticipated only the four retiring members were nominated, and they were accordingly declared elected unopposed by the Mayor, who acts as return- nig officer. The nomination papers were as follows —Charles Booth IMeller, High-street Cowbridge, physician and surgeon proposer' Francis Williams; seconder, Richard Wat- kins, junr. Richard Watkins, junr., High- street, Cowbridge, outfitter: proposer, Fran- cis Williams; seconder, Ebenezer W. Francis Williams, East Village, Cowbridge, superintendent of assurance; proposer, Eben- ezer W. Miles; seconder, Richard Watkins, junr. John Williams, London House, draper: proposer, David Thomas; seconder, Edward John.
LLANTWTT MAJOR Christian Endeavour.—On Tuesdav last the opening meeting of the session 1908-9 of the Christian Endeavour Society, local branch, was held in Tabernacle (C.M.), when the r^' pastor of the Tabernacle (C.M.) Church, delivered an excellent iinau- gural address. There was a good attendance of members and friends. The Institute.—The usual weekly meeting of the Institute was not held on Monday, the 26th inst. It had been intended to hold the opening conversazione on that date, but as the social tea and entertainment in connec- tion with Bethel Baptist Church was' an- nounced for and' took place on Wednesday last. Mr. D. Morgan Rees, secretary, and the members of the Institute Committee decided to defer their assembly to the following week. A full: report of the Baptist Entertainment will appear next week. The Town Hall.—It is understood that some necessary repairs are to be effected at the Town-hall, and while this work is going on, it would be a real kindness if the City Fathers" turned their attention to the ante- room. There is great need for a few bat and coat pegs in that apartment. At present visitors, artistes, and others, at entertaini- ments, social tea's, and kindred assemblies', have to huddle their hats and wraps either ini 'a disorderly heap on the window sill of the platform, or—on the floor of the ante-room. There is no other place available. If the Parish Council ordered a few pegs in that room. the approbation of the general public would be sincere, and the remedying of this defect would taike away a reproach from an otherwise useful and convenient part of the Town-hall.
PORTHCAWL. NOTES BY RAMBLER." The Porthdaw'l Pavilion and. Pietr Co., where are they to-day and their scheme ? Knocked on the head by the Council. It was the two lcck-up shops that caused the bother, and when one sees the building described as a tin Jerusalem" (which was, by the way, to cost £ 3,000) one can well, understand' from what source the opposition came. Well, having done with the scheme," as I suggest the Council think they have, but which conclusion may be erroneous, I should like to ask whether anyone else in the place is ready to tty and improve the position by spending anything l,ike so large a sum. Kindly tell me of one. They have had plenty of time to do the work, and now it has been proposed and plans drawn for the carrying cut of the work, they fail to agree to let the matter go forward. The matter will not rest where it has been landed, so some of the Councillors had better look out for a warm reception. Up, boys, and at 'em," was the football team's ci-y on Saturday last, and at 'em they went like Warriors. The result of snatching a record from the visitors was a bit of a sur- prise to many an on-looker, and to many others who failed to take in the Gazette" last week and. read my notes on the game. Rambler" was severely chaffed about saying P'orthcawl would win. The result, however, proved the anticipation and' Swansea II. had to return home a defeated team for the first time this season. The home team realised that they had a hot lot to deal with, and the detence was splendid throughout, not a chance being given to their opponents. All the parts of the field were in grim earnest, and this was why a team of 11 1 young players, ,all under 21 years of age, were able to win the match bv a try to nil. One quality calling for remark was the unselfish- ness of the winning team. This win. should put some spirit into the team to play up to win in future. I Great sympathy is expressed for Mr. Coxe in the loss be sustained by the fire which broke out on Monday morning. Mr. Coxe hap- pened at the time to be away from home, with his wife land friends, on a visit to the White City. TO-MORROW-S NOSCYNGAUAF." To-morrow (Saturday) night many a home will resound with mirth during the observance of the old-time custom called Noscyngauaf." The Portlwawl branch of Dr. Barnardo's Young Helpers' League are making a novel attempt to provide funds by arranging for the' celebration of All Hallow's Eve at Mr. Corn- ley's rooms, which will serve the double pur- pose of providing enjoyment for young-and old—while at the same time assisting the good work of Dr. Barnardo's Homes. ShaiJow tubs will be provided for "ducking apples" and also strings of apples suspended from the ceiling for the benefit of the tots," and deeper tubs for the, boys and girls of 50 and under. Refreshments, consisting of tea and apple cake, baked and stewed apples with clotted cream, w,ifil be on the tables from 4 to 9 o'clock. Mr. Comley has granted! (1) the use of two large kitchens as welll as his large refreshment hall and (2) permission to make as much noise by laughing as the "dackers" wish, for which he deserves a hearty clap. Some of the mothers are of course truly grateful to be able to have Noscyngauaf without the worry of it, and families—from grandpa and grandma down to the little mites—will turn out en masse to make the event a "bumper" success. Is the rumour correct that several young folks have been practising every night at home just to show how easy it is if you know the way ? Let none resort to the expedient of attaching little hooks to the front teeth. The com- mittee feel so gloriously "apple-lenient" that they invite all to come and win apples as best they can. The low price of. 3d. will be charged1 for admission, and' all the coppers spent will go to relieve the suffering of the little occupant of the Porthcawl cot. To complete the old custom, Mr. Abraham Rees will bring his harp.
KENFIG HILL. THIRTY YEARS AS PASTOR. On Saturday a meetihJg was held at Siloam (Cefn Cribbwr) for the purpose of making pre- sentations to the Rev. Dan Williams and Mrs. Williams on the occasion of the former com- pleting his thirty years as pastor. Owing to the lamentable d'eath of Mr. Williams's father he was unable to be present. Mlr. W. Rich- ards, manager of Cefn Pit, presidted, and said that all who knew Mr. Williams had found him a thorough gentleman, always ready to help the fallen and to champion the weak against the strong. After a lengthy pro- gramme, Mrs. Richards, oru behaLf of the church presented a large oil' painting of Mr. Williams, and Mr. Hopkin Thomas presented Mrs. with a similar painting in oils. Afterwards Mils'. Sarah Thomas and' jtfr. Dd. John, Cwmffoes, presented1 pincenez to the pastor and a pair of gold-rimmed spectacles to Mrs. Williams. After the presentation many gentlemen' spoke, Mr. John' Stenner, re- presenting the Sunday School; Mr. William Jenkins, the elders; and. Mir. Thomas, the church secretary. The following also took part in the meeting: —Recitations, Misses' Maggie John, Maggie Rowdlen, Miay Davies, Janet Rowdeni, Mrs. Sarah Thomas, and' Miss Harriet Fabian; solos, Misss Rosanna Fabian, Mr. David Davies, Miss Bessie Davies,, and Mr. Tom Davies (who sung verses composed for the occasion by Mr. John Lloyd, Kenfig Hill). A vote of thanks was afterwards pas,sed, to the chairman and! to the following ladies, who had worked indefatigably to, bring -alli to a successful issue: —Mrs. Annie Edwards, Mrs. Prisilla Thomas, Mrs. Lloyd, Mrs. M. Davies, Miss M. A. Davies, and Mrs. Sarah Thomas.
BRYNNA. COMPETITIVE CONCERT. Brynma is one of the few rural parishes in this Uniion provided with a hall, which was built on the voluntary system, and which, it is needless to say, is a great boon to the rapidly-increasing inhabitants of the hamlet. The hall was recently painted and generally renovated' at an expense of E35, and on Monr- day evening a well attended competitive conf- cert was held, and the proceeds were devoted toAvards liquidating the encumbrance remain^ ing on the hall. The committee, which had the advantage of Mr. Isaac Jones's efficient services as secretary, had arranged an excel- lent programme, which attracted keen compe- titions of considerable merit, and which re- sulted as follows: — Soto, SoAving the seed" 1, Miss S. J. Lewis, Pencoed 2, Miss Hettie Griffiths, Penprisk. Tenor solo, Men laith fy Mam" Mr. Dd. Lewis, Pencoed. Contralto solo, Oh, dry those tears" Miss Gladys Richards, Llanliarry. Open recitation, Beautiful Snow" An ex- cellent competition, Avhich resulted! in a tie betH-een Miss Gladys Grant, Aberkenfig, and Miss Lizzie Holland, Llanharran. Bass solo, True tilll Death": Mir. Tom Jones, Pencoed. Tenor -solk), "Just as I am": Mr. W. Griffiths, Gilfach Goch. The only disappointing competition the rendering of the congregational tune, "Tre- wen." by parties of eight. Parties from Pen- coed and Llanharran competed', but neither Avas deemed) Avorthy of the prize, both parties being somewhat severely criticised by the ad- judicator. Miss M. Edmunds acoompamlied, the singers illi a very efficient manner. Mr. D. Emlyn DaA-ies, The School, Brvnna. adjudicated the music in his characteristically able manner, and the proceedings were conducted by Mr. John Evans, Coy Church Higher. A most em- joyable meeting concluded with vote. of thanks to adjudicators and accompanist.

All' the officials attended and also several representatiA-es of the work- men. Regret was expressed on all sides that Mr. Peregrine was severing his connection with the works, where for nearly five years he had laboured Avith much success, and during which time he won the confidence and esteem of all.

In acknoAvledgmg the gifts, Mr. Peregrine, in a happy speech, said he was very sorry to have to part with so many friends, and admitted it was a great wrench for him to leave them. During the. time he had been in the Ely Works he always foundl the men willing and the officials capable and obliging, and the works compared AvelT in this respect with others where he had been manager. Finally, all present heartily wished him suc- cess and prosperity in his new venture, it being understood that Mr. P'eregrine was joining a well-known firm of tinptate mer- chants in SAvansea. Mr. D. Moseley fulfilled the duties of chairman very ably. The ad- dress. which was short but expressive, ran as follows:—"Pontyclun, October 21st, 1908. Dear Ml". Peregrine,—It was with regret we heard that you were severing your connection with the Ely Tinplate Works, and we are gathered here this evening on behalf, of all the employees to present you with these slight tokens of esteem. For nearly five you have been in our midist as Secretary and Man- ager, and we feel Ave cannot let the occasion, go by without in some way expressing our goodwill toAvards, and our .respect for, you. Your unfailing tact and courtesy, your kind- ness and good qualities of head and heart, will always be gratefully remembered by us all. We are heartily sorry that you will no longer be with us, and' hone that in whatever other sphere you will labour, success and pros- perity will attend your efforts.
