BRYN -A*M-M.AN. A diagram ot the proposed memorial tablet ts the fallen heroes of Gibea Chapel is nvW on view at that edifice. Special preaching meetings werehelJ at the Gospel Hall on Sunday and Monday, when the Rev. Joseph James, Cwmbach, Aberdare, delivered pointed sermons to large assembli s, Mr. John Howells led the sing- ing, and Mr. J. Pantycelyn Jones accom- panied. There passed away, on Sunday morning, one of the eldest inhabitants of Brynamman, in the per-a of Mrs. Elizabeth Jones, Cwm- tarw Road. She had reached the borders of 88, and up to the last few weeks kept excep- tionally sprightly for one of her years. She hailed from Gwynfe, and was highly Je- spected. There k considerable diversity of opinion in the village as to whether the chief choir should compete at Barry National. A strong element, which is probably in favour of the affirmative, declare that the public should be called together to deal with and decide the question. It is not improbable that the two local orchestras will enter the arena at Barry, and there, with the Juvenile Choir, Bryn- amman will be represented in competitions not participated in before. In view of the sectional character affairs have taken, there is reason to fear that choral anity at Brynamman, for Barry at least, is impossible. The anniversary meetings of Siloam Chapel were held under most favourable climatic conditions and throughout Sunday. Unusually large congregations were treated to effective spiritual diiscouress by the Revs. W. Saunders, Pontycymmer, and Jubilee Young, Felinganol. Mr. John Hopkin led the praise, and Mr. Morgan Lewis presided at the organ. This church some time ago decided to go in for a pipe organ, and a large sum of money was collected for that purpose. Owing to the soaring prices of these instruments, it has since been decided to postpone the purchase for some time. The present organ is deemed sorely inadequate to cope with the vocal volume of the church's choir. During the past weeks, thanksgiving ser- vices have been held at various worshipping places. These in most cases took the form 01 prayer meetings. At St. Catherine's Church, on Sunday, thanksgiving meetings were held, and were well attended. The edifice was appropriately decorated with choice season flowers and fruits for the occa- sion. The officiating clergyman was the Rev. D. Spenser Jones, B.A., Ammanford, who delivered edifying sermons. The anthem, i" Bounteous Harvest," was sung on Sunday evening by the choir, Miss Lilian Evans, Brynamman Hotel, taking the solo, which she sang in good style. Miss Sal Jones presided at the organ. The order of services was as follows:—Morning at 8, communion; 10.30, Welsh sermon 2.30, litany and sermon; and 6, English sermon. The meetings throughout were well attended, many having to retrace their steps on Sunday evening for want of seats.
