CLARBESTON ROAD NOTES. The Christmastide has come and gone. Dur- ing Christmas week the shops looked their very best, and did a roaring trade. I wish all the tradesmen a happy and prosperous New Year. A good many people came home over Christ- mas. Amongst others we noticed Mr. Willy Morris, from Cardiff, son of Mr. Morris, Picton Inn; Mr. Fred J. Davies, Sleeches, from Skewen; Mr. John and Mr. James Davies, from Blaengarw and Pontardae; also Miss Vaughan, The West, and Miss Gertrude Evans, Bridge House, from Swansea. We also had the plea- sure of greeting Mr. Tom Morris and Miss Emily Morris, of Morriston, who are cri a our genial station master. Bethlehem Baptist Chapel is the great centre of attraction on Christmas night in this locality. A well arranged programme was gone through, under the chairmanship of the pastor, the Rev. J. A. Thomas. The adult, choir was under the leadership cf Mr. W. G. Jenkins. Stember, and the juveniles were well led by Mr. Morris Williams. ScuiSil. The male and ladies' parties acquitted themselves most creditably, Mention should be made of the singing bf Mr. G. Jenkins, of Lower Hayfhog, and Mrs. W.lliams. of Scurfil, in their duett. It was evident that, this party was most popular with the audience. They also took part in a quartette, which was well rendered. The re- citing of Miss Doris Reed, of the Rath, was also excelleiV", and -displayed wonderful memory: she shows every promise of a bril- liarft future. A splendid meeting was closed by singing the Doxolcgy. Clarbeston Rud Bridge is a favourite re- sort of our young musicians. On Christmas night a la.'ire number of them congregated and discoursed beautiful music, under the able leadership of Mr. Stanley Vaughan. I con- gratulate him on his choiT. Their balance and phrasing were excellent, and nothing would give the inhabitants of Clarbeston lie ad more pleasure than to hear them oftener. On Boxing Night we were privileged to hear a, quartette party—first tenor, Mr. Tom Mor- gan; second tenor, Mr. William N&rbatt: Spt bass, Mr- William Rogers, post man; second bass, Mr. John Davies, Picton Terrace. This party attracted much attention, but the balance v. iy not too good, and the phrasing and time were rather faulty. There is no doubt, however, with mere practice, and under more favourable circumstances, they can do. better.
