PENYGROES. We regret to learn that Mr. and Mrs. George Taylor, of Castellrhingyll. Peny- groes. have received official intimation of the death of their son, Priv. Charlie Taylor, in France, who made the supreme sacrifice while in action on the 8th of November- three days before the armistice was signed. We extend our sincere sympathy to Mr. and i Mrs. Taylor and family in their bereavement. Although the war is practically over and there is much cause for rejoicing, we must not forget the parents, widows and orphans who have given their loved ones in this the greatest war in the history of the world. Sympathy is very comforting, but financial aid is in many cases needed. We who are left to enjoy the fruits of the war should also see to it that our fallen heroes shall be remembered for all time, by erecting a substantial memorial to the boys who have laid down their lives for their country. Many towns have already in- augurated such a movement, as also have some villages. It is up to the inhabitants of Peny- groes and district to see that they do not lag in the matter of erecting a worthy memorial. A grand reception concert, in honour of Priv. Gwilym Jones, Gorsddu, was held at the Penygroes Vestry on Friday evening last. The chair was occupied by Mr. Richard Rees. The programme, which at the com- mencement appeared to be very short, was extended to a good length owing to the num- ber of encores, all the artistes acquitting them- selves well. The following contributed to the excellent programmeMiss Letitia Davies Blaenau; Mrs. Emlyn Edwards, Penygroes; Master Elwyn Rees, Hendre; Mr. John L. Hughes, Penygroes; Mr. R. D. Rees (Rhyd- fab Hendre), Mr. John L. Hughes. Peny- groes, the Gorslas Music Lovers (conductor, Mr. Wm. HTughes), and the Penygroes Silver Band. Mr. D. W. Hughes presidea at the piano. The guest of the evenjng was presented with the usual gift by Mrs. E. Edwards. Mr. Rees Rees proposed a vote of thanks to all who had taken part, and Mr. John Lewis, Gorsddu, seconded. The National Anthem was then sung, Mr. E. Edwards taking the solo. During the evening, Mr. John Harries (Irlwyn), Bettws, was pass- ing through the village, and on being informed that the above concert was being held, called in and contributed to the programme with an excellent speech jn EngLish and Welsh. He treated the audience to some of his witticisms, and also dealt with the future of our country. The committee are thankful to all who took part, and under the circumstances proffer special thanks to Irlwyn."
