Tho "inhabitants of Pontypridd Maosteg and the Garw Valleys retain a high opinion of the excellent manner in which he has discharged his police duties.

COWERTON RECLUSE. "11 I The case of Margaret Hicks, the Gowerton Squatter, was again referred to at a meeting of the Hazelly Board of Guardians on Thursday. The Swansea Rural District Council wrote asking the Board to discontinue gr anting re- lief to the old woman, and pointing out that it was not the custom of the Swansea Guardians to relive people who lived in unhabitable dwellings. The Hev. D. Jones (Pembrcy), sug- gested that the matter be deferred till the Gowerton members were present. Mr. W. Pugh said that they had heard a lot about this case for many years. He would like to see the members from Gowerton taking this matter in hand, and trying to induce the old woman, without compulsion, to enter the House. Ho was aware that she had an avers-ioll from entering tho Work- house. Mr. W. B. Jonos SaAC1 tho Board should take steps in the case. It was not right to give the money of the rate- payers under tho circumstances- The guardians by granting relief in this caso were fostering this mode of living. If anything happened to this old woman in this "cottage" did they think the Local Government Board would justify the action of tJJc guardians? They weio doing what was radically wrong and every assistance should be given the Swansea Rural Council. After further discussion it was decided to ask the Gowerton Guardians with the Medical Officer and Relieving Officer, to see the old woman and im- press upon her that unless she came into the HOUSB in the course of a month relief would be discontinued.

REVIVALIST'S MOTHER I IMPRESSIVE FUNERAL OF MRS. HANNAH HOERTS. Manifold and sincere tokens of regret and respect were evinced, on Wednes- day in the mining village of Loughor, on the occasion or the burial uf Mrs. Hannaii Roberts (tio), mother or the revivalist Evan Roberts, who died on Friday last. It will be recollected that some time ago, when hi« mother was lying seri- ously ill, the revivalist, who for years has been living in retirement at Lei- cester, was implored to go home and see her, but ho refused to see his iamdy, or hold any communication with them. At present lie is recuperating at Bourne- mouth f;cm a spell of iii-hcaith, and, although up to the v1'y. moment of burial it was hod that he would make I an effort to be present at the obsequies, he did not turn up, neither was a wreath or any communication whatever re- ceived from him. The funeral cortege was a large and Impressive one, and all along the route from the house to Moriah Chapel— where the Revival broke out—in the graveyard of which the interment took place, blinds were drawn in the houses. I The Mourners. The mourners were: Mr. Henry I Roberts (husband), Miss Roberts (daughter), Mr. Dan Roberts (son), Miss May Roberts, Mr. and Mrs. David Williams (Loughor), Mr. and Mrs. Dd. Roberts, the Misses SCarah Hannah, Kato and Mirian Williams, grandchil- dren). Mr. Dd. Hy. Roberts, Mr. Emlyn Williams, Mr. and Mrs Rees Hopkins, Mr. and M rs.

Gorseinon: W. Morgan, Brynteg Davies, Loughor R. NNil- liams. Llan; T. Francis, Hendre; Nant- Ilaig Williams, Ammanford; Mr. J. Jones, Gorseinon; R. W.

Roberts, mission- arv, South Africa; Mr. Sa.m. Jenkins, "The Welsh Sankey"), and the Rev. D. Phillips, Tylorstown (author of the biography of Evan Roberts). The Service. Prior to leaving lor the burial-ground, a short Welsh service was conducted at the house by the Rev. Howell J. Davies, pastor of Moriah, assisted by Mr. Sidney Evans. Impressive scenos were witnessed in the chapel and at the graveside. In the chapel, where a memorial service was held, the hymn, "Ar lor tymhostlog teithio 'rwJf" having been sung, the Rev. Nantlais Williams, Ammaiiford, read a portion of Scripture, after which the Rev. D. H. Thomas, Gorseinon, offered prayer. In the course of his supplication the rev. gentleman referred to "the absent son, and asked that "Almighty God would touch his heart so that he might feel that the hearth at Island House was the same as when he called it home." There were Aniens" from all parts of the edifice, and many mem- bers of the congregation wept. Addresses were delivered by the Rev. Hywel J. Davies ^Moriah) and the Rev. Francis (Hebron). The Rev. David Evans (Bridgend), who followed, referred to the revival. "Ten years ago," he said, "people did not pray in funerals, but things have changed since then." A Great Honour. The Rev. D. Phillips, Tylorstown, I said M rs. Hannah Roberts had a great honour conferred upon her. She gave birth to a son whose voice God had heard, and Wales from top to bottom was shaken to its foundations. She was the mother of one whose memory would be cherished until eternity. Say what you will, declared Mr. Phillips, Wales is totally different to what it was previous to 1904. Men who were given to vice now tread the path of righteousness. Many speak of those who had fallen by the way and had returned to their old haunts, but why not speak of those who have gone ahead. Speak of the converts who have stood firm. What revival in history was there in which some did not revert to their old ways? "We have prayed much," said the Rev. Mr. Morrii4, Cwmamman, "to see the absent ton here to-day. May God keep him and carry the message of this funeral to him." The proceedings in the chapel termin- ated with, the singing of Mrs. Roberts's favourite hymn, "Ar ol gofidiau dyrys dai th. At the graveside, after the Rev. Mr. Lt •wis, Lilian',is, Pontardulais, had pes- formed the hist sad rites, "0 fryuiau CaerBalem ceir gweled" wtu; sung, and then the mourners filed prst the grave.
