I Cymanfa at Tonypandy. The annual "cymanfa ganu" of the Calvinistic Methodists of Mid-Rhondda was held on Monday at Bethania, Mr. J. T. Rees, Alus. Bac., conducting. The day wa,s fortunately most favourable, and a- memorable festival was the result. At the morning meeting, Mr. Jenkins (Pisgah) presided. The children sang most delight- fnlly. and gave ample evidence that their work had been thoroughly prepared. The authcm, "Rhyfelgan y Plant,' was a feature of the meeting. At the Tone Sol-fa examination the examiner, Mr. Dd. R ees, Blaenclydach. reported an advance on last year's numbers, but that illi cue had entered from Scion, Pisgah and Bethania. He sincerely hoped that the people in authority would take a real interest in the work next year. Dr. 1. L. Morgan. Clydach Vale, with his cus- I tomary generosity, had presented the committee with a magnificent banner for the best Sol-fa class last year. This year the competitors were Libanus and Penuel, and the examiner awarded it to the first- named. The teacher of the class, Miss Agnes Thomas, was presented with the banner by the Rev. J. Morgan. Prizes were also awarded by the examiner to Bella Jones and Muriel Morgan for the best work done in the Jaulor Elementary and Intermediate Grades. In the afternoon and evening, success- ful meetings were again held, the several hymn-tunes being rendered with much fervour. Two anthems were contributed, "Moeswch i'r Arglwydd and Cenwcli ynllafar." Very fine renderings were also given of "Moliant" (D. Rees), it befog sung at both meetings. In the hymn-tune competition, the prize was awarded to Mr. John Lewis, A.C., Blaen- clydach. The chairmen were the Rev. T. H. Morgan and Mr. D. J. Jones. Misses M. B. Griffiths and A. Rees played the accompaniments throughout, and Misses Lizzie Davies and A M. Jen- kins contributed solos. The officers of the committee were:- Chairman. Rev. D. Davies, B.A. • trea- surer. Mr. T. Jones; secretaries, Messrs. Dan Morgan and Gwilym Evans.

A Tonypandy Woman Gives Evidence. I The value of local evidence is indisput- able. It is the kind of evidence we accept as true because we know we can prove it for ourselves. There has been plenty of such evidence in the loiivpandy papers lately, and this straightforward testimony has established a confidence in the minds of Tonypandy people that will not easily be shaken. When 1 was living in Barry some three years ago." says Mrs. E. Griffiths, of Ha, Gethin Terrace. Port TV. near Tony- pandy, I had an attack of kidney coin- plait. The pains in my back were sharp and cutting, and I had attacks of head- ache and dizziness. There were also rheumatic pains in my ankles. "The kidney excretions were unnatural and restricted, and left a sediment. Dropsical swellings appeared in my legs and feet so that I could not get my boots on. There was a puffiness under my eyes as well. "Reading about Doan's Backache Kidney Pills, -1 thought I would try them. I began to feel better after the first few doses, and as I continued with the pills my back gradually got stonger and free from pain, the urinary trouble was put right and the swellings disappeared. If ever i have had a touch of back- ache since, a few of Doan's pills soon put mo right. I shall always speak well of them. (Signed) (Airs.) E. Gritffihs."

The anthem, Rhyfelgan y Plant," was rendered very spiritedly, and deserved all the praise hestowed. on it.

LIMITS OF ANIMAL INTELLIGENCE. Animal intelligence is like the figures and desig ns made in a casting; it is not acquired or much changed by experience, while human intelligence is slowly developed through m&D. educative capacity. The animal is a creature of habits inherited and acquired, in a sense that man is not certain things may be stamped into the animal's mind, and certain things may be stamped out; we can train it into the formation of new habits, but we cannot educate or develop its mind as we can that of a child. It doee the trick or the task because we have shaped its mind to the particular pattern we have stamped in this idea. which is not an idea to the gnitn>l» but aa involuntary impulse.
