Thirteen competed for the champion solo, and Mr Williams was awarded the prize. It will be interesting to note* that this well-known baritone is a mem- ber of the Cambrian National Glee Singers, who will leave Wales for the United States in October for a six months' tour. For W.h Butter, Eggs, Bacon, and Ham go to D. Burry Walters and Co., Station Road. Their Tea at 1'3. 7:1 per lb. is the talk for miles around—best ever sold at the price. On Sunday an excellent address on religious work as it is carried on in the> United' State? of America was given at the Tabernacle Bap- tist Chapel by Mr. Pritchard, of Memphis, Tennesse. Mr. Pritchard is at present on a visit to Mr. Thos. Grifriths, .1.P., Buny Port. The address throughout was highly interest- ing and instructive, and wc feel sure that a repetition of this stirring lecture would tend very considerably towards improving the present very stagnant condition, of many or our churches. Mr. Pritchard is a Welshman, and still retains the hwyl of his country- men, though lie has resided for many years in the States, and has', unfortunately, been deprived of the privilege of addressing meet- ings in the language of Eden.

Carmel and Zion Chapels, Buny Port, and Libanus, Pwll. The various choirs had for some time been under efficient, training, with the result- that the singing v« as as perfect a<? h could possibly be. The object, of tha "G-yntanfa." is to raise the standard of the singing in the Welsh churches, and the promoters have every rea- son to- be proud of the success of Sunday's event. The great essential which contributes to the success of any musical festival, apart from the choir itself, is a capable conductor.

He speci- ally mentioned the excellent rendering of the chants. He 'had not, throughout his travels, j heard such beautiful chant-singing, and hoped they would cominlh" in that direction. For such a function as a musical festival the organist must be -an expert player, and Mr. W. T. Roberts gave a commendable perform- ance, hich elicited the greatost praise from the conductor The morning service was pre- sided over by the Rev. John Rogers, Jerusa- lem Chap-el, H. Rees emn- menced the meeting by reading a portion of Scripture and prayer. As in former years, this meeting was taken, op exclusively by the juv-enil'O choirs, and rigid well did they acquit themselves. All the pieces were ad- mirably rendered, and the fine clear voices of the children v, ere so harmoniously blended and so evenly balanced by the voices of the adults that a very line musical treat was en- joyed by the large congregation. Spceial mention should be nude of For," which was so exceedingly well rti I that, it was specially called for at the afternoon and evening meetings. The afternoon and evening meetings were presided over by the Rev. T>. E. Harries, Burry Port, and the Rev. Thomas Jones, Pwll. In these meetings the adult choirs took pan. when the different tunes selected were all sung in a very credit- able. manner, and showed considerable train- ing on the part, of the different conductors. The anthems were also given in a masterly style-, which brought for'h words of praise from the conductor. One very important, feature of the proceedings was the chanting introduced into the service. The chants Soaper and Llandaffwere ex. cellent* Mr. Roberts conducted this festival four years ago, and he said without fear that since then he had never heard suc-h beauti- ful chant-singing. The speakers were Mr. J. Samuel, Jerusalem Chapel: Mr. J. Washing- ton, junior, Zion: Mr. David Da vies, Carmel: and Mr. Michael Evans, Libanus. At the close a hearty vote of thanks was accorded the conductor, organist, singers, and the varmus conductors, etc., and one of the best inuniesl festivals held at Burry Port ter- minated. -0- At Llangefni. Anglesey, yesterday, a Sheriff's Court was held to assess damages for brcarh of promise of marriage in a case brought by Miss Owen, Llanfaeihln, against Dr. John T Price, of Llansawel, Llandilo, a native of Wan fat bin, .formerly of Burry Port, where lie spent eeveral years as assistant to Dr. Owen Williams.

What a darling vou are to wait for me. I moan to you, !»f,eirtise I could nor Jove anv gill in the world but you. Life is hard without, you. I had to get your love-letters out to con- sole me.
