Hanes Eglwys Annibynol Tref- garn o 1666 i 1866. GAN T DIWEDDAR J. THOMAS,^LLETHBB. PENNOD XVII. Yr oedd yn pertbyn i'r eglwys hon amryw o ddynion lied hynod yr amser hyny; dynion darllengar, myfyrgar, a deallus, gan amlaf yn pertbyn i'r dosbarth gweithiol, rbai o honynt yn pregethu yn rhyw ran o'r cylch bob Sabbath. Yroedd- ent yn gydnabyddus a gweithiau y prif dduwinyddion, megis Dr. Owen, Baxter, Charnock, Gurnal, ao esboniadau Gill, Guise, Doddridge, ac ereill. Wedi gor- phen eu diwrnod gwaith, treulient lawer o'r nos i ddarllen a chyfaneoddi eu pre- gethaa. Dyna Thomas Watt. Yr oedd yn feddyliwr ac yn gyfansoddwr da, ond traddodwr gwael, undonog, ac aneffeithiol. Nid oedd yn meddwl, cyfansoddi, na thra- ddodi yn debyg i neb ond ef ei hun. Yr oedd ganddo ei ddull ei hun o wneud pob gorchwyl; ni fyddai yn cydio mewn arfyn fel neb arall, na chymaint a hogi ei fladur fel neb a fu o'i flaen, nao a ddaeth ar ei ol. Yr oedd yn myned gyda rhyw frawd tua ffair Llandeloy, yr hwn oedd yn dueddol iawn i yfed i ormodedd. "Yr wy'n penderfynu peidio meddwi heddyw, Tomos," meddai. Aie," atebai Tomos, 'dw i ddim." "Sut yr ydych yn gwybod syrfchiwch chwi ynte "? "Am fy mod wedi penderfynu peidio yfed dim," meddai Tomos. "Acosydychchwiam beidio raeddwi, penderfynwch chwi i beidio yfed, a chwi ddewch adref yn ddyn sobr 03 na wnewob ohwi hyny 'ro i ddim hyna am eicb pen- derfyniad i beidio meddwi." Yr oedd Isaac Owen o'r tu arall yn ddyn hollol wahanol i Tomos Watt. Nid oedd yn gystal meddyliwr na chyfansoddwr, ond yn rhagori llawer arno fel pregethwr; siaradwr rhwydd, dawn deniadol, ao os yn fyr o ddryehfeddyliau- stori fach. Dy- wedai dyn ieuanc oedd newydd ddeohreu pregetbu wrth Isaac, gyda tipyn o ym- 0 ffrost, Yr wyf wedi gwneud dwy bregeth ar yrun testun. Twt, obe Is,,lac, "beth yw hyny at yr hyn wyf fi yn gallu wneud. Yr wyf fi wedi gwneud un bregeth i bump nou ohwech o destunau." Yr oedd wil gellweirus mor naturiol i Isaac ag anadlu. Yr oedd llawer o bregethu taithiol yr amser hyny, a digwyddodd fod dieithriaid ■i yn pregethu yma am bump neu chwech o Sabbathau yn olynol. Ac ar ol i'r rhes o gyhoeddwyr dewi, cododd Isaac, a chyda gwedd mor sobr a barnwr, dywedodd, Fe fydd yma bregethwr dieitbr y Sabbath nesaf eto, gyfeillion—Mr. Griffiths, Tref- garn." Yr oedd yma bregethwr cynorthwyol arall yn ieu nag un o'r ddau yna, sef James Evans. Dyn ieuanc o dalentau disglaer a llafurus iawn am wybodaeth. Yr oedd er yn ieuanc iawn wedi cyrhaedd adnabydd- iaeth helaeth a gramadegau amryw ieith- oedd. Darllenau gydag adeiladaeth ei Destament Groeg, ac yr oedd yn gallu gwneud ychydig a'r Hebraeg a'r Syriaeg. Pan yn 14 oed collcdd ei olygon. Yr oedd yn llwyddianus fel cystadleuwr eistedd- fodol. Pregethai yn rymus, ond byddai ei iaith yn rhy glaaurol i'r bobl gyffredin i gael y budd mwyaf 0 dan ei weinidogaeth. Ysgrifenodd lyfryn bychan er budd i broffeBwyr ieuainc, Y Cristion Dyddor- gar." Yr oedd ei faterion yn dra gwerth- fawr, ond yr oedd ei arddull mor fombast- aidd fel y methodd y llyfr gyrhaedd ei amcan. Bu farw o'r darfodedigaeth yn 1842. Yr oedd yn yr ardal yma rai dynion hynod iawn, wedi cyrbaedd gradd helaeth o wybodaeth yn y gwyddorau a'r celfydd- ydau, dynion hollol hunan-ddysgedig. Yr un mwyaf hynod, feallai, o'r rhai hyn ydoedd Joseph Charles, un o'r dosbarth hyny nad ydynt yn gwneud eu hymddan- gosiad mewn ardal ond tuag unwaith inewn ewpwl o ganrifoedd. 0 ran ei gorff, yr oedd o dan y taldra cyffredin gwyneb bychan, llyfn a difarf, trwyn bycban a theneu, rbwng dau lygad miniog yn am- rantu yn ddiatal, a tbalcen o gryn faintioli yn crogi drostynt. Yr oedd yn hynod o ran ei drwsiad-breeches, a socasau patent cord, a'r botwmau yr ochr fewn i'r coesau, ac nid o'r ochr faes, gwasgod o'r un def- nydd, a dwy neu dair 0 gotiau yn ol gradd- au yr hin, a'r isaf o honynt fyddai yr hiraf, a'r uwchaf y byraf. Yr oedd yr holl fot- ymau o blwm neu beuter, &c wedi eu gwneud ganddo ei hun, a dwy glocsen am am ei draed. Paham yr ydych chwi yn gwisgo y got hiraf yn isaf "? gofynid i Joseph. Am yr un rheswm ag y gosodwch chwi y slates bargod y ty yn hirach na'r un uwchlaw iddi atebai, Byddai ei logellau yn gyflawn 0 bapyrau a llyfrau, potelaid 0 ino yn orogi wrth un 0 fotymau ei wasgod, dau neu dri o benau, a razer i'w mendio. Byddai yn ei law ffoa o bump i chwe troedfedd 0 hyd. Yr oedd yn rbifyddwr diail yn ei oes, ac yn fathe- matician rhagorol; yr oe3d mor gyfarwydd yn mhedwar ilyfr Euclid ag ydoedd yn y llyfr corn. Yr oedd yn hoff iawn o astronomyddiaeth. Treuliodd lawer noson i wylio symudiadau y bodau wybreool. Yr ,)r,rl,i yn gallu colio cylchdroadau dyddiol a blynyddol maintioli a phellder yr holl blanedau oddiwrth yr haul. Yr oedd yn gydnabyddus a phob constellation yn yr hemisphere hon, ac yr ydoedd wedi cyfrif diffygiadau yr haul a'r lleuad am ugeiniau os nad canoedd o flynyddoedd i ddod. Yr oedd hefyd wedi astudio gryn lawer ar physigwriaeth, ac efe fyddai "gwaedwr" cyffredinol y gymydogaeth. Yr oedd tyns gwaed y pryd hyny fel meddyginiaeth yn fwy oiewn arferiad nag ydyw y dyddiau hyn. Os byddai rhywbeth y mater ar was neu forwyn, danfonid am Joseph i'w gwaedu, a byddai yn all right. Gofynais i feddyg paham na fyddid yn tynu gwaed y dyddiau hyn os oedd mor effeithiol ? "Amy rheswm goreu yn y byd meddai, sef am nad oes gwaed yn- ddynt i'w dynu." Tynai Joseph mwy 0 waed o fercbed bochgoch, aelodog y dydd- iau hyny nag sydd yn ngwythienau lliprin- tD iod gwelw yr oes hon, sydd yn byw ar de a choffi, a chln. Bwyd llwy, blawd ceirch sycan a llaeth yw'r bwyd i gynyrchu gwaed ac ymenydd, breichiau a borddwyd- ydd hefyd. Ami iawn y gwelid Joseph yn Hwlffordd 0 flaen drws Mr Potter, y Ilyfr- werthwr, yn ei drwsiad arferol, a'i dwy glocsen ar ei draed, a'i ffon yn ei law, yn nghanol trwp 0 foneddigion a boneddigesau, yn deongli rhyw ddirgeledigaethau neu yn esbonio rhyw phenomenon ag oedd wedi, neu ar gymeryd lie yn y byd wybrenol, a bydd- ai mor artrefol yn eu mysg a phe buasai yn nghymdeithas cynifer o fugeiliaid. Yr oedd Joseph yn gryn dipyn 0 athron- ydd, a deallai natur y meddwi dynol yn well na llawer. Cynygiwyd unwaith i droi y gyfeillach yn gwrdd i adrodd profiad- au, a cheisiwyd gan Joseph i adrodd ychydig o'i brofiad. Na wnaf er dim," meddai Joseph, "y mae fy mhrofiad yn beth rhy gysegredig i gael ei drafod yfory yn siop (erydd neu efail y gof." Yn ystod y cyfarfod yn y capel byddai Joseph yn y vcstry, Ni fyddai byth yn eis- tedd, ond cerddai yn ol a blaen yn araf a'i bapyr yn ei law, a'i ben yn y llaw arall, yn cymeryd nodiadau o'r bregetb. Ysgrifen- odd gyfrolau yn y dull yna, ynghyd a'i tiylweldau ei hun arnynt. Ar ol ei farwol- aeth syrthiodd ei holl weiLhiau i ddwylaw dynion nad oedd yn gallu eu prisio, ac aeth llawer 0 honynt yn goelcerth, a gwasgar- wyd uas gwyddis i ba lø. (I'w barbau.")

Haverfordwest Brewster Sessions. The annual Brewster Sessions were held on Mon- day at the Shire Hull, before the Mayor (Mr. H. J. E. Price), Messrs L. Roberts, T. L. James, and W. J. Jones. Supt. James banded in his annual report, which, aocording to the curious custom which prevails at this court, was accepted by the Bench without being read. In reply to the Clerk the Superintendent said he had no :objeotion to raise to the renewal of any license. There was no objection from any other source, and the whole of the existing licenses were renewed.
FLANNELETTE. If purchasers of this useful mater- ial for underwear all the year round would buy the best English make, which can be obtained from all leading Drapers, they would avoid the risks they undoubtedly run with the inferior qualities of Flannelette. HORROCKSES' FLANELETTES, made by the manufacturers of the celebrated Longcloths, Twills and Sheetings, ARE THE BEST. Horrockses stamped on selvedge every 5 yards.
I The Pembrokesh founds. iT ? The meet on Friday, 9th Fe, was at TrwHe- ton Bridge. Hobbs was carr, ic horn in the absence of the Master, Lord It tbgtOlJ, who, un- fortunately, is on the injured de Amongst other;. w. noticed Mr H. Fisher, Deiygf Cspt. and Mis* Higon, Scolton Mr V. J. alm, Sealyham; Mr D. Evans, F.R.V.S., Haver! vest; Mr VV. J. Smith. Churchlands; Mr ilf Llewellin, Uppor Haythog Mr T. Gibbon, Ro$3e?hook, &e. The first cover drawn was R jaston, wliioh proved blank. Amb!eston Moor was ea tried, but Rey- nard was not at home. A me', was made to Hook and Churohlands, but no find A Hounds were then taken to the lurze covers of tyt West where a burst of welcome music soon proo!?ui#d a find, and hounds were seen bursting out of c er on the brush of a vixen. The line taken was tt Pentyparc, round the Soollocks, across the Cardifcn road to the Bill, thenco tn Churchlands, rerossing the Cardigan road, and back to the West,here our fox went to ground after giving us a shrp burst of about 40 minutes; hounds went at a reat pace, and for some time quite slipped the field. Everyone was glad this vixen escaped, as we hope hr progeny will give us many a good gallop in the titure. Our next move was to Pentyparc and Froghall Moors, which proved untenanted, though hounds were opening in the latter noor and it looked like a find. Scolton was then visted, but the covers did not hold a fox. Ratnswood was the next draw, and we at once found. Our fOt (two were afoot) broke out by Ramswood Farm, wd wont via Ginger Hill, Newton, Poyston Cross, tie Rath, Cnmdale, W ith- vbush, Cottesmore Lodge. Windy Hill, South Leys, Kilbarth, Newton to SooLon, where, scent failing, bounds were unable to pick up the line, though, doubtless, they had a bea'au fox in front. An excel- lent run of about 8 miles(ae hounds ran) with II few checks. It was uafortumr.,e that scent failed at the end of this capital gallop, is hounds richly deserved blood, but wo hope this jUtllant fox will give us an equally good run when D xt we visit him. Another excellerat day's sport.
An Impudent Theft. Fr nCI" Jo^ph alton &>cMaboa was brought up nefore the May^r (Mr Herbert J. E. Price), Mr i'. James, and Sir L. Roberts, out charge of stealing a •iiver watch, of me value o'.

Roose Brewster Sessions. Saturday—Before Messrs T. Rule Owen (in the chair), W. Howell Walters, W. Davies, and George Davies. Supt. James, replying to a question by the Clerk, j said he had no objection to the renewal of any license, but he had an objection to an application by Mrs. Phelps, of the Commercial Inn, Merlin's Bridge, for a transfer of the lioense from her husband's name to her own. The application had been before the court on a previous occasion, but was adjourned as the magistrates were not satisfied. The applicant's husband had been convicted of being drunk on his own licensed premises, and this application was simply made in view of the fact that pressure was being brought to bear on the man by the owners of the premises. Mrs. Phelps went into the witness box and ad- mitted that her husband was not in attendance, although she knew it was necessary that he should be there. The magistrates renewed the whole of the licensts inoludincr that of tho Commercial Inn, but they refused tho transfer asked for.

Welsh Muse ;xd the Bible. INTERESTING LECTURE AT CARDIFF BY THE KEY. MAFONWY DAVIES. Cardiff Cymmrodorion enjoyed another treat on Friday evening Jast, in li-tening to a lecture by the Rev. T. Mafonwy Davies, Congregational Minister, SolYR, one of the crowned bard of Wales, whose subject wa., "Yr Awen Gymreig a'r Beibl (" The Welsh Muse and the Bible.") The lecture was given at the Town Hall, and Mr. Evan Owen presided, in the absence of the Lord Mayor, who has taken such a keen interest in the work of the Society throughout the session. Mafonwy said that the was predominant throughout the Bible, ami this fact was appreci- ated and realised by no people more than by the Welsh. The Bible influenced Welsh poetry to a very great extent. In times gone by it was dangerous to compose ver-" on any subject with- out having a scriptnred text to prove the senti- ment. fIhey seldom Cil¡¡I, across a great epic outside subjects intensely Biblical. English poets did not approach poetry in the same spirit as the Welsh. Shelley went to lore Nature, Words- worth went to think about Nature, and Tennyson to study the laws of Natnre. Bnt the Welsh poet went to Natu:e to se; God. Unfortunately Welsh poetry was very conservative. Any Welsh poet was in danger nniesa he followed in the footsteps of some other great bard who had preceeded him. Yet that conservatism could be forgiven because it caused the Welsh muse to adhere to the Bihle. The religions nature of the Welsh Illase had pnrified the eisteddfod. There was a time when the eisteddfod was a drunked institution, and when the bards composed their songs with the aid of wine. At the present time the eisteddfod was a sober institution, and as time rolled on it would become a soberer insti- tution still. (Applause). A very cordial vote of thanks was accorded the lecturer.
Pembrokeshire Quarter Sessions I The adjourned quarter sessions for the County of Pembroke were held on Saturday at Haverfordwest, before Mr T. Rule Owen (in the chair), Dr. Griffith, Mr W.

Hints to Advertisers, When a man spends his money in advertising, he wants to get it back, and more, too, if he is sensible, A man is foolish to spend money in advertising if he is not likely to get it back. A sensible man may make a mistake, and not get his money back but a sensible man won't keep on making mistakes. He will look for the right advertising medium, and stick to it if he finds it pays. Some people who don't know much about advertise ing in a modern, up-to-date sense, sometimes think that cheapness is the chief consideration in advertis. ing. Good advertisers don't look for cheapness. They took away from it. They mistrust every advertising medium that is cheap." With a good tadverliser to be cheap is to be worthless. They know that ia costs money to build up a newspaper, it costs money to run a good one, it costs money to get circulation and to hold it, and time, energy, ability, and money can't be sold cheap, much less be given away. Nine hundred and ninety-nine out of every thousand good advertisers in the world have found'that high priced advertisements pay best, that so-called" cheap. advertising never pays at all. A fair and reasonable rate, though apparently high, in a good newspaper is verj .nuch cheaper-that is, it is more profitable- than so-called cheap advertising in interior papers. Good advertisers don't advertise for sentiment, any more than a man works sixteen hours a day for his health. They advertise for business. They advertise among those whom they are likely to do businew with. They advertise in mediums that circulate among those whom -,hey want to do business with. They don't advertise where there is no business te be done.
