The company returned home about 8.30. having spent a very pleasant time. Credit is due to the hon. sec. for getting to- gether a good number, considering the un- favourable climatic conditions. SOUTHERNDOWN GOLF CLUB. At a meeting of the Southerndown Golf Club Committee held on Saturday, applica- tions were received from a number of pro- fessionals anxious to secure the position of professional and greenkeeper to the club. Out of 20 or 30 applications three, of young players aged between 22 and 27. from St. An- drew's, Westward Ho, and Dollymount (Dub- lin), were selected for further consideration. and it was resolved to request these appli- cants to meet the members of the committee at Southerndown to-day (Friday), when in all probability a final decision will be arrived at. Amonp; the questions discussed was that of the shortening of the 16th and 17th holes. At present No. 16 is 540 yards and No. 17 is 520 yards, and the former is especially ardu- ous for the reason that from tee to green it slopes up the hill. No. 16 starts from op- posite the club house,, and forms the hv-io- tenuse of a right angle triangle, of which Nos. 17 and 18 form the other two sides. It is suggested, and the proposal will no doubt in the late autumn be carried into effect, to make a new green about 340 yards from No. 16 tee. which will shorten that hole by 200 yards, and near this green will be a new tee for No. 17 hole, which will reduce the length of the latter hole from 520 to about 370 yards. These holes are at present both 6 bogey, and no doubt this will be reduced. The bogey of the course is at present 86. No one has yet been round in bogey, and the best score yet was one of 91 done by Mr. E. de Lisle Jones, of the Glamorganshire Club, when be played round the course with Dr. Barry a week or so ago. Lady Aileen Wyndham-Quin. daughter of the Earl and Countess of Dunraven, has written to Mr. W. R. Randall, hon. secretary of the Club, accepting the presidency and captaincy of the ladies' section of the new club. A ladies' meeting will be held at the end of September, when Lady Aileen will be at Dunraven Castle. OTTER HUNTING AT BRIDGEND. GOOD SPORT IN THE OGMORE AXD EWENNT. Mr. Hastings Clay's pack of otter hounds are now kennelled at the Dunraven Arms, and are hunting the waters of Ewenny, Og- more. and Thaw.

The pack were then called off. and commenced hunting the stream above the bridge towards Ewenny. where they showed signs all the way up. On reaching Waterton Hall the excitement com- menced. one or two otters being viewed. Jackson, the hunstman. was equal to the oc- casion. the hounds settling: down in fine form. One of the otters took an overland route for a short distance before again tak- ing the stream. ]-he aek. sticking to him closely, drove him down to the Warterton Moors, where, after an hour and 40 minutes hard hunting, it was killed. It proved to be a vixen of 161b. weight. Colonel Turbervill was presented with the mask. and Miss Wil- liams. The Heath, with the tail. The mas- ter then drew back to Waterton. and it was not long before the hounds irot going again. The feeler had some good snort for anotner hour and 20 minutes as thev drove their quarry down stream, and killed in close proximity to the first one. This turned out to be a dog otter of 121b. weicht. Young .Mr. Brewer, of Newport. was presented with the tail. and Mr. Salmon. Cardiff, with the mask. Rain fell heavilv at intervals during the day. THE LATE MR. T. LLOYD EDWARDS. The funeral of the' late Mr. T. Lioyd Edwards. Bridfrend, surveyor to the Glamor- gan County Council, which took place on Friday at St. Illtyd's Church, Newcastle, was of a strictly private character. The services in the church and at the graveside were con- ducted by the Rev. David Phillips. B.A.. Vicar of Newcastle. The chief mourners I present were Mr. Arthur Edwards and Mr. T. A. Edwards (sons), Mr. Frank Edwards. M.P. for Radnorshire, and the Rev. W. Edwards. Vicar of Corris (orothers). Others present were Mr. S. H. Stockwood (deceased's co-churchwarden at St. Illtydsi.

J. ftankey, T. iiardwicii, ana £ >. jctooerts (sidesmen of New- castle Church,), Mr. Aiec Mark, road inspec- tor for iinagend district, and the other road inspectors oi the county. The coffin, which was covered with beautiful noral tributes from near relatives, was ot polished oak. and the name-plate bore the inscription "Thomas. Lloyd Edwards, died 7th August. 1906; aged 64.' Atter tne luneral muffled peals were rung on the church bells. The tuneral ar- rangements were carried out by Mr. Leonard Rhvs. Itie Vicar of Newcastle (Rev. D. Phillips) preached a touching sermon on Sunday morn- ing on the death of Mr. T..Lloyd Edwards, in the course of which he said During the past week the passing of Thomas Lloyd Edwards leaves a deep sense of personal loss to many of us, and I cannot allow his depar- ture from us to pass away without making some reference to it; for his life was full of many lessons worthy of imitation. To at- tempt any adequate description of his full character and influence is beyond my power, but there were some characteristics so marked that they were known to most of us. Absolutely true to duty, he would never shrink from anything he thought was right and just, whether it might interest him or not. Those closely associated with him in business capacities will remember his habits of method, his care for details, in things great and small. His strong sense of duty was very marked. He was wedded to his work, which he carried out most conscien- tiously. His integrity of character and up- rightness of life will ever remain a monument to his memory. With him character was the noblest of possessions, and his own com- manded universal respect and honour. He placed a high opinion upon good character by setting a noble example himself. An- other characteristic of our deceased friend was loyalty of friendship. He was true to you because he was true to himself. It is a simple matter to win hosts of friends in prosperity; it is difficult to count upon them in adversity. We claim for our departed friend the constancy of friendship in all the varied trials of life. In the storm and calm in the troubled waters and sunshine, he would remain loyal. Sociableness was an- other prominent trait of his character. We shall have reason to mourn his ioss in this respect, for his loving nature and sympathetic touch of fellow-feeling always found him on the side of ready response, with a noble dis- position to fee! for others. His face was full of kindness and sympathy, and his very voice was full of pathos and tenderness. Look at his conduct towards children. This at once stamps the man. How he won their hearts with kind words and deeds! Children have a remarkable instinctive knowledge of human nature in its kindness and sympathy. Politeness entered into his very being in all his actions. There was a dignity in all his transactions which made a deep impression upon usbliging and kind to his friends, and always showing courtesy to strangers. Now this brings me to another characteristic in his life—devotion. He feared God and served His Church. Look aft, his example as a Christian. A man full of business, wrapt up in his duties of a weighty character, hold- ing a most important official position in the affairs of this county, conversant with busi- ness men with all shades of opinion—men of the world, perhaps of little Christianity—and yet our dear friend never surrendered his faith in God, his devotion to the Church, his interest in religion, his regular communion. It is refreshing to remember that he sought the consolation of religion after his tired labours during the week, and that he served this Church as one of its wardens for many years, twelve in all, filling his office with be- coming dignity, and realising a full sense of the responsibility of his honoured position as Churchwarden by discharcring his duties to the responsibility of his honoured position as Churchwarden by discharcring his duties to the entire satisfaction of all. The Church was dear to his heart, and a real power for good. The choir—to him ever a source of pride and grstification--has lost one of its best friends and supporters. He was full of music, was attracted to good music, knew how to appreciate it. and. I say it in no boast, no music satisfied his soul like that of St. Illtyd's. He was really proud of the choir. We all know that, and we all feel the force of the power of the beautiful words. Thou wilt keep him in perfect, peace whose mind is stayed on Thee."
