I ABERCRAVE NOTES I TY'NYCOED MUTUAL IMPROVE- MENT SDCIETY. The weekly meeting of the Ty'nycoed M. I. S. was held on Friday evening, when Mr Morgan Price, J.P., presided over a large gathering of members, and* able papers were read by the following Master T. Roderick, on "John Bunyan" Master Oswald Thomas on "General Botha and his work" Mr William Price, Glynllech on "The Creation of Man," a.nd Councillor D. R. Morgan on "Prif Nod- weddion yr oes." The discussion which followed each paper proved very interest- ing. I MINING CLASS The Mining Classes under the tuition of Mr William D. Lewis, Frondeg, are being very well attended. About a dozen of the members contemplate sitting for the Firemen's examination at Ystradgyn- lais within the next few weeks. I SINGING REHEARSAL ] A full rehearsal of the members of the Noddfa, Nantyffin, and Moriah (Colbren) Churches took place on Sunday evening I at Nantyffin. There was a. large attend- ance both of vocalists a.nd hearers. and the proceedings spoke well for ths sing- ing festival to be hE;!d in Ainon, Ystrad- gynlais in May next, for which prepara- tion is being made. Mr David Jenkins, Abercrave, is the conductor. I FfiOF. MIALL EDWARDS AT NEUADD. The-re were very large congregations at N-cuadd Cliapel on Sunday, when the pul- pit W.8 occupied by Prof. D. Miall Edwards, M.A., of the- Brecon Memorial College. The rev. gentlema.n delivered powerful and scholarly sermens, which were greatly appreciated. I HOCKEY NOTES The local ladies team visited Clydach on Saturday last, where a thoroughly en- joyable game was indulged in, resulting in a. victory for the Abercraveites by two goals to nil. It was an excellent match in all respects. To-morrow (Saturday), Ystalyfora men's team visits A bercrave. This is sure to be a. good game, and it is expected that there will be a large at- tendance of spectators. ,TOUS ILLNESS Many readers wui join with us in sym- pa.thy with Mrs. Jones i.nd family, of Dolycoed, in the serious illness of her eldest son, Mr Johll. Morgan Jonos, who is suffering from pneumonia. Mr Jones who is engaged in the blacksmiths' de- partment at the Abercrave Collieries, is vary popular in the village, and we trust he will have a speedy recovery. ] VISIT OF DR. VAUGHAN THOMAS The visit of Dr: Vaughan Thomas, M.A., of Swansea., who is announced to give an organ recital at Carmel (C.M.) Chapel, on Thursday evening next, is being anticipated with no little interest a.nd there will no doubt be a large at- tendance at the function. I.L.P. MATTERS A public meeting of the local branch of the I.L.P. will be held on Monday evening next in the Institute, when Mr Llewelyn Morgan, of Ystradgynlais, naa promised to speak, and give some light- ning cartoons on the blackboard. This should o prove an attraction, and the branch omciala hope that the hall will be crowded for the occasion. CO-OPERATIVE MATTERS I There has been a noted increase .in. the membership of the AlxTcr.ive Co-opera- tive Socicty of late, and slowly but sure- ly the are regajiung a. poaitiof) of security. Interesting developments will probably be forthcoming in the near future. LOCAL MINE-OWNERS' ENTER- I PRISE. LocaJ readers will learn with interest that Messrs. Davies, the well known Abcrcrave Col\iery pronrietors, a-re ocn- tompln.ti-ng opening up a new colliery at Godre'rgraig, Ystalyfera. They have leased a considerable portion of land there and propose to oommence .sinking opera- tions at an early date. G.F.S. ENTERTAINMENT A CON-I SPICUOUS SUCCESS. The members of the Girls Friendly Society branch at Aberorave, as well as those who were responsible for their training, are to be heartily congratula- ted on the great success attained by their concert last week-end. This was the third function of its kind giTen by the members during the past four years. bu.t it is safe to say that the last effort al- together eclipsed the previous ones in every respect, and the entertainment will long be Njmmbenxl by all who were privileged to we it. It was origirially .arranged that the proceedings should only be given on Thursday and Friday even- ings, but in view, of the large crowds at- I tending on these occasions, many being unable to gain a dmission, together with I the fact that an appeal h ad been made for a further performance by many of the night workmen, it was decided to give the entertainment on Saturday evening also, and again there was a large and ap- preciative audience. Air Morgan Price, J.P. (Glynllech), presided on the first- evening, the Rev. J. Jones (Rector of Ystradgynlais), on the second, and the Rev. J. G. Hughes (curate of Abercrave) at the special performance on Saturday. The programme took the form of a very pretty operetta, entitled "Zurika, the Gipsy Maid," and a farce, "Apartments to Let," and both were given in a most creditable manner. The principal rharac- ters in the farce were takeTi by Misses Lewis, Wat kins and Rees all acquitting themselves well, and the same might be sa-id of the principals in the operetta. The dresses were splendid, the acting and singing excellent in every way, in a word the proceedings were thoroughly success- ful. To Mrs. M. W. Morgan, Bryntawe, and Mrs. Morgan (Maesygwemen, the two associates of the branch, who were mainly responsible for the productions, great credit is due, whilst Mr David Jones (precentor at St. David's Church), who conducted, and Mr Lewis Thomas, Ys- tradgynlais, who accompanied, must also be congratulated on their share in the entertainment. It is expected that a good sum will have been realised for local church funds. ——————
