THE MESSIAH" AT RHYM- NEY. A FINE MUSICAL TREAT. Two crowded audiences assembled at the Victoria Hall, Rhymney, on Thursday and Friday evonings, when grand performances were gi ven of the oratorio, Th6 Messiah (Handel) by the Glyn Elyrch Choral Society (which consisted chiefly of the Choir of Zion Congregational Chnrch, SR- sisted by friends) under the able conductorship of Mr Daniel Owen, A.C. The concerts, organised to liquidate the debt on Zion Chapel, had been anticipated with much inter- est and a first-class, treat was expected. That this was fully realised by the most exaoting critic was manifest by the frequent applause which followed many of the solos and choruses. In- deed, although Rhymney audiences have been privileged to hear Handel's great work on several occasions within the last twenty years, the production appeared quite fresh, and supported by experienced artistes and an excellent orchestra, uuder the leadership of the well-known Cardiff violinist, Pro- fessor Garforth Mortimer, the entire production had the hall-mark of ex- cellence. It is therefore not to be wondered at that the talented con- ductor (Mr Daniel Owen) has been showered with congratulations npon providing such a magnificent musical treat. The artistes, each of whom were at their best, and gave unbound- ed satisfaction, were Soprano, Miss Mair Jones, Carmarthen, who has taken part in some of the leading Provincial concerts and festivals contralto, Miss Mary Richards U.C. W. who is equally famous as the con- ductress of the Rhymney National Ladies Choir; tenor, Mr W. John Jones, A.C., a soloist who captivated his auditors by his sweet renderings bass, Mr Glanville Davies, Maesteg, the hero of so many champion com- petitions in all parts of the Principal- ity, and whose rich voice thrilled the audience on both nights. The orchestra was constituted as follows :—First Violins, Professor G. Mortimer, Cardiff (leader) and Mr J. Griffiths, New Tredegar; Second Violins, Miss Newman, Bargoed, and Mr J. Price, Rhymney Viola, Mr Morgan Lewis, Rhymney Cello, Mr Sydney J. Phillips, Bargoed; Double Bast, Prof. David Jones, Bargoed; Trumpet, Mr Broadest, Abertysswg Trombone, Mr Loft, Abertysswg; Clarionet, Mr Bhys Probert, Rhym. ney. Coming to the performance, space precludes us giving a detailed criticism. In Part 1, the overture, by the Orchestra, was most praise- worthy. Mr W. J. Jones in his open- ing contributions has seldom been heard to finer advantage. He gave a beautiful interpretation of the reoit, Comfort ye my People (which was heartily applauded) whilst the air it Every Valley likewise re- ceived good treatment. The succeed- ing chorus And the Glory of the Lord" was impressively rang and revealed excellent training. Mr Glan- ville Davies, in the recit Thus saith the Lord and the air "But who may Abide," soon won favour with the audience by his artistic singing, and the choir rendered most effectively the chorus And He shall purify." Miss Mary Richards, who was warmly received, did full justice to the recit, 14 Behold a Virgin shall Conceive," and the ever popular air (with chorus) 14 0 Thou that Tellest was also a most finished performance. Mr Glan- ville Davies gave an excellent render- ing of the air 11 The People that walked in Darkness,0 and the choir gave a most robust rendition of the ohorus For unto no a Child Î8 Born." The loud applause at the close was fully merited. Other praiseworthy items were the soprano recits, There were Shepherds, And the Angel by Miss Mair Jones, who gave an ac- ceptable rendition of the air Rejoice Greatly." Miss Mary Richards quite sustained her reputation in the familiar air He shall feed His Flock." In Part 2 there were many striking numbers. Miss Richards captivated her auditors with the air He was Despised," a performance which was loudly encored. The choristers gave a masterly interpretation of the ohorus" All we like Sheep," and "Lift up your Heade "wu finely rendered. Mr W. J. Jones in his numerous solos, again impressed the audience. 44 Their Sound is gone out" was another most praiseworthy effort on the part of the choir. Mr ftlanville Davies achieved agreatsueeeesin the 11010" Why detha National This I was one of the tit-bits" of the I' evening, and as was to to be expected I the distinguished bans was rapturously encored. Mr W. J. Jones in the ane- ceeding nomber" Thou shalt break Them gave a most effective render- 1 ing of the air, and the ever popular "Hallelujah Chorus was magnifi- cently song by the choir. The attack was brilliant and naturally moved,theandience to a high pitch of enthusiasm. There was a true Handelian ring throughout the rendering. In Part 3 there w,t-e again inspir ing numbers. Miss "dair Jones gave a particularly pleasng rendering of the air u I know th t my Redeemer iiveth," whilst the sb rfc quartettes by the artistes also reo ived good treat- ment. Mr Glanville Davies was again at his beat in the air *4 The Trumpet shall sound," and the choir gave a majestio rendering of the chorus Worthy is the Lamb and Amen," which formed a fitting climax to a musical treat of the first order. Mr Daniel Owen wielded the baton with that throughnesi; which revealed a master hand. Choir and oond actor are to be complimented upon snoh a mag- nifioent performance. The duties of chairman were ably performed by Rev. R. B. Peregrine, B.D. (on Thursday) and Mr W. D. Thomas (Maesycoed) on Friday. Efficient service was also rondered by the accompanists, Mr Abel E. Jones, A.C., Miss Annie R. Jones, and Mr Gwilym R. Morris. As already stated, the concerts proved a conspicuous sucoess, music- ally and financially. Towards attain- ing the latter, a large measure of the success is to be attributed to the energetic oemmittee, with Coan. W. T. Hopkin, F.G.I., as chairman; Ald. John Edwards, J.P., treasurer; whilst Mr D. T. Evans, II Scethrog," Alex- andra-place, again discharged the duties of secretary and worked like a trojan throughout. —— tee
Rid of Sciatica from 1910 to 1918. and still keeping well. ON October 8th, 1910, Mr W. W Comber, of 3, Salisbury Terrace, Bexhill, made the following statement1" I was laid up for months with Sciatica, through my kidneys being injured by a chill. There was tenderness and burning in the whole sciatic nerve, aud I was swollen and inflamed on the left aide from hip to toe, whilst if I stooped, a stabbing pain attacked me in the back. The bladder, too, became dis- ordered, and caused painful urinary difficulty. I tned at last Doan's Baekaohe Kidney Pills, and I can truly say that they have cared me completely. The Hoiatica and the kidney weakness are gone for ever, I feci sure, for very many months of every sort of weather has left my eare unimpaired. (Sgd.) W. Comber." Eight Years Well and 7a. On Jansay Srd, 1918, Mr Comber lAid :_If I am in my seventy-second year now, and keeping I remarkably well.

BEDWELLTY DISTRICT COUNCIL. A GILFACH CROSSING. Mr Isaac Jones, J.P., presided at the ordinary meeting of the Bedwellty Urban Council at New Tredegar, on Tuesday, when it was reported that the extension of Ceunoil's gas mains to Troedyrhiwfuwoh, as desired by the Gelligaer Council, would involve an expenditure of about Z250. The charges upon this, together with the estimated gas consumed, would be about iZ25 per annum. It was anticipated that the income would be Z125 per annum.—After some this oussion, it was decided to offer the Geliigaer Council an option to pur- chase and distribute the gas in the Troedyrhiwfuwoh distriet, or an al- ternative that an agreement be made by which Gelligaer would undertake a supply of gas for public lighting for a number of years. The Blackwood members, in con- junction with the Gas manager, presented a report upon the quality of gas and the pressure in that district, which, it was stated, was new muoh improvod. A deputation, representing the P.D. Joint Committee, waited upon the council in reference to the erection of a foot bridge across the B. & M. Railway near Gwaolodywain Farm, to facilitate the Gilfaeh workmen reaching the Brittannia Colliery in isfoty.-Councillor Albert Thomas, J.P., who introduced the deputation, said that some few months ago a number of tsen were summoned for trespassing on the B. & M. Railway at this point. The case came on at the Blackwood Court, where the Gilfach people successfully put up a claim of a right-of-way. The Magis- in dintiuiDl the ou. ex- pressed an opinion that either the B. & M. Railway Co. or the Powell Duffryn Co. should put up a foot bridge at this point for the safety of the men. The P.D. Co. had in- timated their readiness to do some- thing in this direction. Since then the deputation present with himself, had met Mr Douglas Hann en the matter, and that gentleman said that if a promise was made by his company to have a footbridge it should be carried. There was, said Mr Thomas, a great desire to have this fulfilled, they therefore appealed to the counoil, so that for once in a while the council may protect and preserve a right-of- way. (Hear, hear.)—Replying to the Chairman, ha said there was a road on the Glamorgan side of the valley lead- ing to the point of the crossing, along what was known as Cartwright's siding, so that Golligaer could not be asked to pay any portion of the cost. —Mr Pearson, who accompanied Mr Levi Williams and Mr Roberts on the deputation, also spoke, after which it was decided, on the motion of Mr Edgar Davies, to ask the P.D. Co. and the B. & M. Co. to meet the local members of the counoil on the spot and complete arrangements.
