( BRIDGEKD CARNIVAL. j — SMART EXHIBITS. 1 — Although under tat* auspices of the kxal branch or the Y.M.C.A., the annual garden party and fancy dress carnival is looked upon as a town's event, and on "Wednesday the efforts of the many to make it successful were rtsfarded. The object in view was to wipe on the adverse balance on the funds of the branch, and to raise sufficient money to meet anticipated heavy expenditure for mamten- ahce purposes. Formed seven years ago, the branch has made steady progress, and the number of members total 1-0, wrllle the cost of upkeep is about :t.:70 i.er annum. lowards this sum the members, by subscriptions, raise, one half, but through lack of outside assist- ance an annual adverse balance faces tne committee, and events such as W ednesay's 'nave been necr-sary to raise the remaining amount. At a cost of 1::)0 a billiard table was provided, which has been paid tor by the members, and this is to be handed over as a source of revenue. GARDEN FETE. In the picturesque grounds cf Elmsfield, kindly lent bv Alderman and Mrs. 1. J- Hughes. stalls had ueen erected, containing goods of all descriptions for the afternoon s garden fete, whicn was opened by Mrs. Johnson, of Lalestou House, who was accompanied bv Mr. W. Johnson. A vote or thanks was accorded them, on the proposition of the Rev. T. Davies, seconded by the Kev. D. Phillips (.tear of Newcastle). Young ladies in lemming costumes of various na- tions then engaged, themselves in the work ot disposing of sweetmeats, flowers, etc., but un- fortunately the attendance was not so large as could be desired, owing to other attractions and the unsettled climatic conditions. A bien cake and confectionery competition in the afternoon resulted in the following prizes being awarded:—Ladies only—Best home- made bread. Miss E. J. Brown; best plain cake, Mrs. Hardwick best fancy cake, Miss Yoo. In the bakers' and pastrycooks' com-! Wtion, there was only one competitor, Mr. alter John, who was awarded the prize. The judges were Messrs. C. P. Tucker and W. H. John. During the afternoon selec- tions were rendered by the Tabernacle Or- chestra, under the conductorship of Mr. TV J. Matthews. Miss G. Williams presided at the piano. The stall-holders were:—Y.M.C'.A. General Stall: Mrs. D. Phillips. Miss George. .xd iss Letcher; fruit, vegetable, flower, etc., Jijw, Stuchbery. and Miss Hopkm; iee-cream, swwts, and confec-1 tionery stall, Misses C. Thomas.. Smart and M. Patterson; strawberries and cream and lemonade stall. Micoes P. Ypo. M. Posting, and Mr. Perry Thomas refreshments and tea tables. Miss M. Lewis and Mrs. G. T. Hard- wick, and a large band of helpers; electric battery, Mr, J. Paul; games on the lawn (croquet, clock golf, bowls, and billiards), Alderman T. J. Hughes in charge. THE CARNIVAL. Representations on horseback were the principal feature of the carnival in the even- ing. and many of the characters were exceed- ingly fine. Mr. T. Hopkins as the Indian Prince with flashing jewels set on a magnifi- cent costume, was first to appeal to the eye, and although not securing a prize in his class was not out of the running. A 11 Red Cross Knight" (Mr. J. Mumford) rode round the field with the Emperor of Japan" (Mr. F. G. Harris), and "Claude Duval" (Mr. M. Mumford) played pranks with Robin Hood" (Mr. S. Purfield), who had taken to horse and left the trusty bow and the feathered shafts behind, while following, with courtly demean- our. was a "Spanish lady," in a flowing dress of dainty colours, and Britannia" in all her glory. '"The Knight in Armour" carried, the mind back to times of long ago. but the "'Chinese Mandarin" was a true represents- | tion of the man of the East. as he is known to-day, with Mexican Joe representing the wild West. There were some really good original and comic costumes. One of the best, simple as it appeared, was the little hoy attired as a collier, with pick and safety lamp. The organ-grinder and monkey were good. while Tired Tim, during his weary walks around roused roars of laughter and pennies were thrown at him to make him stoop. The motor car, which evaded a tax. was another good idea, and Mocassin "Boots (Indian), the "Rajah Cigar." Boot Box," Rich's Mul- tum in Parvo.' were all worthy of awards. It was an extremely difficult task to judge in such strong classes. Robinson Crusoe, Fri- day. and the Goat," in the children's class, were splendid. In the ladies' classes many pretty costumes were seen. The judges were Messrs. D. J. Gwvn, W. Griffiths, G. Singer, W. Johnson, Alderman T. J. Hughes, Dr. A. D. Low, Mrs. W. Williams, Miss Griffiths, Messrs. S. H. Stockwood. W. A. Williams, C. H. Price, Mrs. T. J. Hughes, Mrs. W. Johnson, and Mrs. Herdman. Mrs. W. Johnson, and Mrs. Herdman. After the judging, the competitors formed in procession, and marched through the main streets, headed by the Town Band. members of the local Boy Scouts bringing up the rear. Crowds of spectators turned out. Prize list: Representation of any character on horse (lady or gent): 1, Mr. W. T. Edwards. Red Indian Chief; 2, Mr. J. Mumford, Red Cross Knight; special, Mr. A.

BRIDGEND GROUP OF SCHOOLS. lae Rev. E. S. Roberts presided over the meeting of the managers of the Bridgend Group of Scaools on June 30th. There were also pre-oat; Revs. E. 11. Griffiths, Owen Davies, F. C. Williams. Messrs. Wm. Evans, H. Abbott, W. iJov.til, D. Williams, Mrs. Powell, and the primary inspector (Mr. Bryn Davies). In adopting the attendance reports, atten- tion was called to the low percentage of the Kenfig Hill district, it being below any other district in the county. The attendance officer was asked to do everything possible to improve matters, and the clerk was directed to write to the two local managers requesting their co-operation. A notice was received from clerk to the County Council of their intention to erect new schools on the Merthyrmawr-road, Bridgend, and at Brvnmenin. Having regard to the fact that five Pen-I coed Sunday Schools had arranged to hold their annu;\l outing on July 4th, ifc was re- solved to cuose the schools on that day. [
MAESTEG SEWERAGE. | -+- MIL T. K HOPKINS'S UEPL Y. | ro TUE EDITOR. Sir, — My notice lias been called to a report m your l-su-e of the 1st rnst. of a meeting of j the Bridgend Crban District Council, at which meeting charges were made against the Maesteg Urban District Council, for allowing their sewage to go ijito the river. I do not think I should be justified in allow- ing these allegations to go unchallenged. It is true that. in the past, we have had some difficulty in dealing with our sewage, but for a considerable time now it has, considering cer- tain disadvantages which I need not enter iuto. been satisfactorily dealt with, and the statements made at the Bridgend Council meeting that my Council are deliberately pol- luting the river with the whole of the sewage of Caorau and Nantyffyllon, and that, in- stead of abating the nuisance, we are making matters worse, are, therefore, not only mis- leading statements, but are very wide of the facts. During the heavy rains of last week it is true a temporary stoppage occurred in the main cast-iron sewer near); antyffyllon Station, which stoppage was, however, soon cleared, without damage to the sewer, and the sewage conducted, as usual, through the main to th, disposal works. The facts are that at the present, and for some time past. the whole of the sewage of I Maesteg is conducted to the sewage works and there filtered (except in times of heavy rain, when the surplus is unfiltered), subse- quently being carried on to the land recently laid out for that purpose. On the 11th of May last. the Bridgend Council sent the Maesteg Council a formal notice of their intention to proceed for an in- junction to stop our allowing the sewage ts go into the river. At the time of this notice, no part of our sewage was allowed to go into the river unfil- tered, and in a letter of the 13th of May, from Mr. Scale, the clerk of my Council, to Mr. Howell, the clerk of the Bridgend Coun- cil, acknowledging receipt of this notice, it was stated that there was no pollution of the river by any sewage from my Council's sewer or works. It is to be regretted, in the face of this letter, and of the facts, that these un- founded charges should be made.—Your obe- dient servant, THOS. E. HOPKINS, Chairman of the Maesteg Urban District Council. 5th July. 1910.
DISTRESS AT MAESTEG. A meeting of the Executive Council of the South Wales^Miners' Federation was held at Cardiff yesterday. Mr. W. Abraham, M.P. (Mabon), presiding. There were also present: Mr. W. Brace. M.P. (vice-chairman), Mr. Thomas Richards, M.P. (general secretary), Mr. Alfred Onions (treasurer), Mr. John Wil- liams, M.P., and others. It was reported that great distress prevailed in the Maesteg district consequent upon the stoppage of the Garth and Oakwood Collieries. After a long discussion, a proposition that a conference to consider these appeals should be called, and that the question of forming an out-of-work fund should again be considered, was deferred to the next meeting.
POLICEMEN'S VISITS TO PORTHCAWL LICENSED HOUSES. THE RESULT. At Bridgend Police Court on Saturday, be- fore Alderman W. Llewellyn (chairman), Dr. E. J. Parry, Messrs. J. Canniff, G. Harris, and Wr. J. Griffin, two more licensees ap- peared to answer summonses for permitting drunkenness. THE "GENERAL PICTON." Thomas Jones, landlord of the" General Picton," Porthcawl was summoned for per- mitting drunkenness on his premises the pre- vious Sunday. Mr. D. Llewellyn appeared for defendant. P.S. llees Davies (Maesteg) said at 7 o'clock in the evening, he visited the General Picton with P.C. Evans, of Pontycymmer, and found a man named Patrick McCarthy, of 89 Com- mercial-street. Maesteg, in the bar. He was very drunk, staggering about the bar. The landlord was present, and witness drew his attention to the drunken condition of the man, but he did not reply. Witness advised the landkrd to turn the man out. and he did so, assisting him along the passage to the front door W catching hold of his right shoul- der. The- fitndlord returned to the bar, and witness then drew his attention to a man named William Casey, of 40 Park-street, Maesteg. This man was sitting down on a form, and was under the influence of drink, and witness told the landlord to remove him. The landlord did not reply, neither did he say anything to Casey. After he had visited other parts of the house, witness went out and saw McCarthy with some other men. With P.C. Evans witness walked down the road a little way. and came back to the house, as they saw McCarthy staggering in again. They followed, and found him in the same bar in the act of drinking from a pint measure he had in his hand. Some of the beer was spilling over his coat. Again witness drew the landlord's attention to the man and to the pint measure, and asked him why he had supplied him. He made no reply. Witness then told him to take the measure from Mc- Carthy, and he did so. McCarthy said, It is my —— pint, and I am going to drink it." P.C. Williams, of Laleston, and P.C. James, Bridgend, came in, and McCarthy was assis- ted out. When outside he staggered about so much that witness told the constable to take him to the Police Station. Upon wit- ness again speaking to the landlord about Casey, he ordered the man out. He had seen both the men in the house with beer earlier in the day. P.C. Evans and P.C. Williams gave corro- borative evidence. Defendant said he did not see McCarthy come in, hut saw him standing by the bar. He said to him. "Look here, guv nor, you have had enough." Witness told his wife not to serve the man. and she did not do so. When the sergeant came in, witness left the bar to show him round the house, and when they returned McCarthy had got a mug of beer from the counter belonging to another man. Witness took the mug from him. and turned him out. He was positive that Mc- Carthy was not served, and neither were the men in the house previously that day. George Mitchell, Cowbridge, and Thomas John sa.id they saw defendant turn McCarthy out without his being served. The Chairman said the Bench were satis- fierI that drunkenness was permitted, and fined defendant £3. WELCOME TO TOWN." Mary Llewellyn, landlady of the Welcome to Town," Newton Nottage, Portheawl, was similarly summoned. She was not repre- scnted by a solicitor. P.C. Savage stated that at 5 p.m., with P.C. H eavons, he visited the "Welcome to Town," and in the bar parlour, sitting down, were twenty men. Amongst them was a man named Llewellvn, who was drunk. While witness was speaking to a woman who had two children with her. respecting the pre- sence of the children on the premises, Llew- ellyn's sister got hold of him (Llewellyn) by the arm, and assisted him from the parlour into the back kitchen. Witness and P.C. Heavens followed, and Llewellyn, who was sitting down, said. I am the son of this — house. I have come down from Ogmore Vale." Fined TWO VISITS NOT ALLOWED. For unlawfully being on licensed premises at Porthcawl on Sunday, June 2Gth, the fol- lowing were fined at Bridgend Police Court on Saturday:—Fnmes Ray, collier, Nanty- ffyllon, 10s.

Olipiuuit Jones surveyor for tno district in the pi are of .1r. 11. Dawkin • Williams, resigned. Mr. Jones has been as- sistant surveyor to the Council for the past I ten years. Mr. W. T. Oliphant Jones is a son of the late Rev. D. Howell Jo:u s, Rector of Capel Cynon, Cardiganshire, and was born at Bassaleg, Monmouth, in 1872. His earlier education was m-eived at a private school. and after being under a private tutor for some time he continued his studies at Harlow College, Essex, where he figured prominently in the college sports, and ultimately became chief prefect.

Secur- iug the position of deputy surveyor to the Og- more and Garw Council ten years ago, he has 'I been engaged on big schemes of drainage and private street works in the two valleys.

TARIFF REFORM. ASSOCIATIONS MEETING IN CARDIFF. GERMAN TOUR PROPOSED. The annual meeting of the South Wales Tariff Reform League was held in Cardiff on Wednesday, when there was a large attend- ance of members, representing all the coun- ties within the Association's area. Mr. F. L. Davis presided, in the absence of Lord Dunraven. and among those present were: — Mr. H. Longstaff (secretary), Alderman Lewis Morgan, Mr. W. Llewellyn (Court Colman), Mr. R. O. SauHclerson, Mr. W. E. o. Wil- liams, Mr. T. P. Pritehard and Mr. J. Fowler (Barry), Mr. R. E. Jones (Portheawl), Mr. Wr. R. Smith, Mr. J. J. Ames, Mr. Chas. M. Lloyd, Mr. D.R.Ambrose, the Rev. E. Jenkins (Llanmihangel). and others. The following telegram was read from Lord Dunraven: — Kindly convey to members of the South Wales Tariff Reform Federation how much I regret being unable to attend meeting to-day owing to prior important engage- ment. I feel sure that the success gained at the last election, when our opponents avoided the question of Tariff Reform and had resource to a policy of trying to set class against class, has greatly encouraged j us, and will lead us to renewed activity. British workmen of all parties have recently visited protected countries and have, at last, from personal observation become weary of the falsity of the Free Trade statements. (Applause.) UPHILL WORK. Proposing the adoption of the annual report, the Chairman said the longer he lived and the more he moved about the more ho was convinced that if this country is to main- tain its commercial supremacy there must be some alteration in our fiscal system. (Hear, hear.) When that Federation was inaugu- rated it was recognised by those concerned that it- work must, of necessity, be of an up- hill nature, which was to be expected in an area which had alw ays been Radical, and in which Socialism was not altogether unknown. (Laughter.) It would be up-hill work in the future, too; but lie was convinced that if they stuck to their guns and did not relax their efforts, ultimate success was assured. (Ap- plause.) A great amount of work had been done since the formation of that Federation, and especially during the last year. Thou- sands of meetings had been held. a great amount of literature had been distributed in the different counties explaining what Tariff Reform meant, and they had already seen some of the results of that work, for at the last General Election two seats were won, to a large extent through the efforts of the Federation. (Applause.) Another election could not be far off, and this, at any rate, was not the time in which to relax their efforts. A great amount of work had to be done before the next election, but it could not be done without adequate funds. He knew the financial position had only to be made known in the six counties to secure the additional support. (Hoar, hear.) The executive committee, Mr. Davis added, were anxious to receive suggestions from the vari- ous districts for the better organisation of the work there. PROPAGANDA WORK. Mr. Harold Lloyd seconded the adoption of the report, and spoke of the immense assist- ance the Federation had rendered to the can- didates in the various constituencies, and said it was perfectly evident that as a result Tariff Reform was making real headway in South Wales. There was no better organis- ation for propaganda work in the country than the South Wales League. (Applause.) The report was adopted. The Chairman announced that Mr. Long- staff had submitted his resignation of the secretaryship, as lie had undertaken to act again as agent for the Monmouth Boroughs. ELECTION OF OFFICERS. The Earl of Dunraven was re-elected presi- dent, on the motion of Alderman Lew is Mor- gan. who spoke of the excellent services his lordship had rendered to the cause. Senior vice-presidents were elected as follows:—The Marquis of Bute and the Earl of Plymouth for Glamorgan Viscount Tredegar, Breconshire: Sir James Hills- Johnes, Carmarthenshire; Colonel Davies- Evans. Cardiganshire: Lord Kensington, Pembrokeshire; and Sir Powlett Millbank. Radnorshire. Mr. R. O. Saunderson was appointed hon. secretary for Glamorgan. GERMAN TorR. Mr. F. H. GaskpH said the time had come when that Federation should seriously consi- der the question of arranging for a body of working men, resident in its area, to visit Germany in order to study the conditions there at first hand and compare them with those in this country. (.\pplause.) Bodies of working men had already been sent to pro- tected countries bv some of the other Tariff Reform Leagues, and South Wales ought not to be behind in a matter of such importance. (Hear, hear.) It was hardly necessary to say one word in support of the proposition, because they would all agree that if a hun- dred working men had had the opportunity of studying the condition of things in Germany, it would do more good than a thousand speeches. (Applause.) He suggested that each of the various Conservative and Unionist Associations in South Wales should be asked to provide funds sufficient to send three men, and that that Federation should pay the ex- penses of one from each county. The cost would be eloper head, and thus each Asso- ciation would only have to provide The expenses of others might be provided by in- dividuals, and many would accompany the party. He suggested that from each county they should select a Unionist, a Radical, and a Socialist, for. after all, they wanted to bring sinners to repentance. < (Laughter.) He proposed that the question be referred to I the Council. PLEDGED NONCONFORMISTS. Mr. J.J.Neale. seconding, said tho adop- tion of the proposal would provide the indus- trial districts of South Wales with a band of working preachers who would lie able to /) speak with authority on German conditions. Continuing, he said the South Wales Free Church Council at their Newport meeting had pledged the Nonconformists to Liberalism. As a Nenconfonnfst and he saw a number of other Nonconformists in that meeting—he I strongly objected to any body pledging the Nonconformist Churches of Wales to Liberal- ism and Free Trade. Perhaps they should send/some of the loss bigoted of the ministers -present at the Newport meetings to Germany. (Loud laughter.) Mr. R. O. Saunderson supported the mo- ¡ tion. which was unanimously adopted.

DISCONTENT AMONG MINERS. ————*——— MR. VERNON HARTSHORN GIVES HIS OPINION. Mr. Vernon Hartshorn, speaking to a news- paper representative upon the causes of dis- content in the South Wales Miners' Federa- tion, said: The unrest and discontent is not only among those who are regarded as irre- but is strongest amongst the thinking section of our members. It is duo primarily to a quickened intelligence brought about by the steady propaganda of the I.L.P. The real ecomonic circumstances in which the workmen are placed under our industrial sys- tem have been made clear to them by this pro- paganda and have developed what one writer has described noble spirit of discon- tent.' There has arisen a widespread de- mand for social justice, but among large masses of the workmen there has not yet been formed a clear conception of what ought to be done to get that demand realised, and in their efforts to express this di'scontent many of the men are adopting methods that are de- structive rather than constructive. We must recognise that, face to face with huge combinations of capital, Trade Unionism on its industrial side has its limitations, and we must advance our policy and make it more comprehensive. But though Trade Unionism has its limitations it is nevertheless vitally essential still for the workers. The miners must remember that it is possible that non- Unionists may increase to such an extent as ultimately to place the whole coalfield abso- lutely at the mercy of a strongly-organised body of coalowners. The heavy concentra- tion of capital in a few hands which has re- cently been brought about in South Wales makes it more than ever imperative that the workmen should organise to meet it. I con- sider the existence of these non-Unionists to be largely due to the lack of any systematic educational policy in the Miners' Federation. The time has come when there should be an educational department connnected with the Miners' Federation, the business of which should be to see that all the workmen are well instructed in the principles of Trade Union- ism and of the benefits to be derived there- from. It ought to be easy by those means to educate every workman to sec that it is his moral and social duty to be a member of his Federation, and that it is an essential part of his duty to his family and his fellows. All the Federation members of Parliament should be connected with that educational depart- ment. They know the Trade Union move- ment on its two sides—industrial and politi- cal—and having an intimate inside knowledge of both phases of the movement they could render inestimable service if the time that they could spare from Parliamentary business were devoted to educational work in the dis- tricts. Whenever notices on the non-Union question are running in my district I always regard it as a re-action upon myself, and cer- tainly a reflection upon the intelligence of the workmen, the class I represent. The Federation will not be the power it should be until the necessity for coercion in this matter becomes a thing of the past. To have to coerce a man to do what is his obvious duty is to admit that that man has not suffi- cient intelligence or moral sensibility to carry out his duty of his own accord. The demand for justice which has been created in the minds of the rank and file can only be fully met by extending our field of operations. I think we should aim not at mitigating the evil effects of private monopoly, but should rather seek its removal. I think we must aim not so much at resisting the unjust de- mands of the employers but at removing from them the power to impose conditions at all: that is to say, we must go in for the national ownership of the mines and thus enable the miner to get- the full fruits of his labour. This idea of national ownership is one which has been discussed in our national conferences for the past 10 years, and every leader in the Miners' Federation of Great Britain is pledged to it, and the miners' members have been authorised to draft a Parliamentary Bill for the purpose of carrying out the idea. It is thus one of the chief planks in the Feder- 'I ation platform, but although it has been dis- cussed in the national conferences and has been laid down as the policy of the Federa- tion, the subject is practically unknown among the rank and file or it would arouse among them an enthusiasm which would leave no place for non-Unionism. By means of a systematic educational campaign and. a I strong forward lead in politics we shall find a practical outlet for the present1 unrest in the Federation and will arouse an enthusiasm which will completely solve the non-Unionist I problem." u

FISHING. .Councillor J. Mander, of Cardiff Council. an ardent devotee of the sport, jealously guards the interests of wielders of the piscatorial rod when opportunity presents itself. As a member of the Waterworks Committee of the Cardiff Corporation, he has lately interested himself in the condition of the Ely River, per- sistent effort leading to an analysis of the water taken from the river being made. The result of the analysis was presented to the Waterworks Committee on July 1st by the engineer, and distinctly showed that the sample taken from the river at Llantrisant bore marked evidences of pollution from the tin-plate works in the shape of sulphuric acids, etc. Councillor Mander regarded the present state of the river as being serious enough to take immediate action. He in- stanced the cases of the Rivers Llynfi, in the Ojgmore, and the Ebbw, in Monmouthshire, where not a single minnow could live, as what might possibly happen to the Ely if steps to prevent further pollution were not taken. It was evident that the pollution had not yet reached Ely, but the sediment would gradu- ally work its way down from Llantrisant, where several trout had been found killed by the acids. Eventually the town clerk was asked to report upon the legal aspect.
MINING STUDENTS' TOUR. — ♦ LOCAL MEN TO GO TO BELGIUM. The tours promoted by the Glamorgan County Council will commence to-morrow, when Mr. Henry Davies, the mining lecturer, will leave Cardiff with 26 students of the county mining classes on a tour of inquiry in the Belgian coalfield, which extends from west to east for a distance of 80 miles, and lies be- tween the Pas de Galais and the Westphalian fields. The tour will last a fortnight, and, with the assistance of leading Government officials in Belgium, Mr. Davies has arranged an excellent programme, which provides for a visit to Brussels Exhibition and to several of the deepest collieries in the coalfield, some of the shafts of which reach a depth of consider- ably over 3,000ft. The following local men are among those warded travelling scholarships:—Messrs. H. J. Bennett, Ogmore Vale: W. J. Packer, Gil- fach Goch: John Richard Jones, Maesteg; James D. Barnett, Garth: Thomas David. Gilfach Gach: John Powell, Caorau; and Emrys Griffiths, Garnant.
MAESTEG. Picture Palace.Soijie very good pictures were shown here last night to good houses, Joan Valjean being the pick of the pictures. Vasey and Ramsey, in the comedy dancing sketch, are very laughable, and the dancing element is the best we have seen for a long time. George Hunter and Bob, in the Humpsti Bumpsti sketch, cut some funny antics, which keep the audience in an uproar from the rise to tlie fall of the curtain. Next week, commencing Monday, for six nights an extra strong programme is offered, the varie- ties including Li Ching Hi Chinese illusionist, Joe Stirling, comedian, and the Frohmans, in th<Sr musical melange. Some very good films will be shown.
PORTHCAWL. The Pavilion.—The result of the splendid list of amusements at this popular place is shown in the gratifying increase in the num- bers attending here daily. The Tennis Courts, Bowling Greens, and Quoits are being well patronised, while the Bandit perform- ances are patronised by ever increasing num- bers. This week the programme for the con- cert is as good as one could wish for. Miss Ivy Harper and Miss May Harper are great favourites, while the duets between Mr. Harry Hutchens and Miss Ivy and Miss May Harper call forth rounds of applause. For those who feel a bit seedy" one of the best possible tonics is to hear Miss Nan Porter (Tidley-Pom) and Al I-. Norman Griffin (" Garge"), either individually or in the duets. Encores are quite the order. Last, but certainly not least, there is Mr. Bert Gates, who has just joined the company, and whose ventriloquial entertainment and bari- tone voice are a treat. There is also Miss Thompson, whose ability as accompanist at the piano, adds greatly to the success of the various items. Mr. Hutchens is to be con- gratulated on the splendid entertainment he serves up for his patrons. Death of Mr. J. Heald.— The death has taken place at his residence, at Porthcawl, of Mr. Joseph Heald, "who went in Cardiff 31 years ago and started a wagon business at the Docks as Joseph Heald and Co. Some years later he sold the business to the North Central Wagon Company, of which firm his brother, Mr. G. T. Heald, is at present man- ager. Subsequently the deceased was con- nected with several local firms, among them being Edwin Cottan and Co. and the Bute Docks Supply Company. He lately disposed of his interest in the Cardiff Rolling Stock Company. He was at I'umney for some time. and was a prominent member of the Cardiff Liberal Association, and chairman of the Adamsclown Ward. Mr. Heald leaves a widow and six sons and three daughters.— The funeral took place at the New Cemetery, Cardiff, on Monday, amidst the earnest sym- pathy of many friends. The Rev. Marshall Limon (Roath-road Weslevaus) and the Rev. J. Newton Davies (Whitchurch) officiated at the graveside, and among the mourners present wore Mrs. Heald (the widow), Mr. J. Arthur Heald (son), Mr. and Mrs. Frank I Watson (Salisbury), daughter and son-in- law: the M is.ses Louie and Katie Heald (daughters), Masters Stanley and Gordon Heald (sons), Mr. Phillips-Smith (step-son), Mr. G. T. Heald (brother), Miss Ettie Heald (niece), Mr. and Mrs. T. P. Yates (Chorley), sister and brother-in-law: Mr. William Bertram, Mr. Allan Pratt (solicitor), Mr. C. E. Williams, Mr. T.

LLANTWIT MAJOR The Holiday Season.—Although the weather has not been all that could be de- sired, numbers of visitors have come to this favourite resort from various parts, and, on some days, were favoured by brilliant sun- shine and breezes. On Saturday over three hundred children and friends of a Barry or- ganisation came, accompanied by a band and banners. Their picnic was held in the Mill- way Field, but, unfortunately, for a while the rain came down in torrents and interfered with the pleasure. Later on, it cleared up and the evening was fine. The Dairy School.The County Council Travelling Dairy School course of instruction is still being carried on by Miss S. Edwards. of Llysfaen, whose method of conducting the classes is both practical and interesting. These summer classes will doubtless increase the number of competitors at our next annual Christmas Fat Stock Show, and thus prove that the training now in progress has by no means been in vain. Foreign methods of butter and cheese making are familiar to the official instructress of the Glamorgan County Council, for Miss Edwards has travelled through some of the most celebrated dairy countries in Europe, and returned with a store of very useful knowledge to impart to her Welsh pupils. Doubtless, she also has many hints for landlords and farmers on the building and keeping of dairies, which, good as they are. do not always attain the modern hygienic standard. Yet there are still many cool, old-fashioned, and healthful dairies to bo found in the beautiful and pastoral Vale of Glamorgan. Thunderstorm. After heavy rain, accom- panied by rumbling thunder on Sunday mor- ning and afternoon, there was a temporary interval of fairly fine weather. But shortly before seven p.m. the thunder increased in volume and the lightning was very vivid. Soon after seven, dark and heavy clouds gath- ered, causing great gloom, with thunder and lightning. The storm culminated in one of the heaviest thunder crashes that has been heard here for a long time. It was perfectly appaling, and had a very disturbing effect upon some of the congregations assembled in the various places of worship. Out in the open. birds new down to places of shelter, as though they had been struck to the earth. and animals were much frightened. Wit- nessed from high ground, tho lightning was extraordinary, consisting of the sheet" and forked" variety. But the most remark- able was the "Iall" lightning which, it is said, fell like a burning globe some distance beyond the town. A peculiarity about the lightning was the red tint of it, and the dis- tinct smell of fire that followed each flash. Probably when the terrible crash of thunder came a bolt fell somewhere in the vicinity, but out in the country, away from any dwell- ings. Wick and the neighbouring villages were visited by a similar storm, which was alarming in its effects, but fortunately no in- juries to human life or limb were reported.
KENFIG HILL B.Sc. Degree. Mr. Tudor Williams Price, son of Mr. D. H. Price, has gained the degree of B.Sc. with honours in chemistry.

Obituary. — Tlie funeral of Mr. Alfred J. Horsell, who passed away so suddenly, took place at St. James's Church on Saturday afternoon in the presence of a large number of people. Seventy relatives followed his body. including his mother and seven brothers and two sisters, with his three little children. The coffin was covered with floral tributes of a most choice design. The service was fully choral. Mr. Gonist, the organist, abiy pre- sided at the organ, and played "I know that my Redeemer liveth," as the mournful pro- cession entered the church. As they were leaving he played the :i Dead March" in Saul. The Hew J. Bangor Davit's officiated I in the church and at the graveside. The choir rendered the deceased's favourite hymns, under the able leadership of Mr. Rees Rees. Deep sympathy is felt with Mrs. Hor- sell, who was lying dangerously ill. Sacred Concert. A sacred concert was held on Sunday evening in a large marquee on the Waun Bant Field. Mr. Taliesin Jones, overman at the Cribbwr Fawr Colliery, presided, and in the course of his introductory f remarks, said it was an unusual departure from the general Sunday observance to hold a concert in the evening, but it was in aid of a most deserving cause—the breakfast fund of the Maesteg out of work miners, whose children were at present suffering pri- vation and hardship. He also added that Mr. John Thomas, Cwmbrala House, had sent a donation of £1 for the purchase of milk. In response to the appeal made by the chairman, a sum of C10 was added to this sum. The Keniig Hill Temperance Choir and the Music Lovers, under the leadership of Miss M. A. Jenkins and Mr. Edgar Ware, 15.Sc., rendered some excellent pieces, and were loudly applauded. Miss M. A.
