PRESENTATIONS TO AN ODDFELLOW AT MELTHYR. A most enjoyable meeting was held on Monday night at the Past Grand's Lodge, Cowbridge Arms, Merthyr, the occasion bein^ the presentation of a handsome tea and coffee sen ice and an emblem of the Order framed in oak, to P.P.G.M. John Dav.es, dis- trict lecture master and senior trustee, of No. 3, Court-terrace, who has served the district ofOddfellows very faithfully for over 40 years. The chair was occupied hy the president, P.G. William Parrv, Cyfarthfa Castle Lodge, and P. P.G.M. John Howells, district trustee, occupied the vice-chair. In opening the proceedings, Tne President said they had met that night to do hononr to whom honour was due. For over 40 years Bro. John Davies haa served his lodge, district,* and Order very faithfully. There was hardly another Odd- fellow in the district who could fill bis place so admir- ably, and he trusted he would live long and continue to do the good work he had done iu the past (hear, hear). He called upon P.P.G.M. Loekyer to make the presentation on behalf of the v, hole district, which included Merthyr, Dowlais, Aberdare, Hirwain, Cefn, Troedyrbiw, Merthyr Vale, and Glyn Neath.—Bro. Loekyer, in handing the presents to the recipient, referred in eulogistic terms to the admirable way in which Mr. Davies had serred the Manchester Lnity in this district, and trusted the time was far dietant when the recipient would give up his active work in connection with OddfeHowship. Prov. D.G.M. Kees Harman, of the Prince Llewelyn Lodge, presented Mr. Davies with a P. P.G.M.'s jewel, fbfl recipient, he said, had l>een of great assistance to the Prince Llewelyn Lodge, and they were proud to have that opportunity of recognising his good work.—P.P.G.M. Davits, in acknowledging the gifts, thanked the Mer- thyr District and the Prince Llewelyn Lodge for the kind manner in which they had shown their apprecia- tion of his work during 40 years. In carrying out the duties of the Order he had always received the greatest kindness and assistance from the-district officers, and especially from the officers he Haw around him that night. He had done what lie thought was his duty, without any idea thet he was to receive any remuneration of that kind, hut he was proud to !JO the recipient of such handsome articles. He would continue to work for the benefit articles. He would continue to work for the benefit of the Order and the distrift, as long as he was able. He thanked the speakers for the kind words said of him, and the good wishes expressed on his tahalf.— P.G. Morgan I>ewi«, Noah's Ark Lodge, one of the prime movers in the presentation, dwelt in an eulogistic manner upon the able services rendered tho lodges m the district by Bro. Davies. H., (Bro. Davies) was initiated in the Loyal Prince Llewelyn Lodge in 1853, and was elected Noble Grand in 18a4. He was made ? trustee in 1856. In 1864 the Merthyr District, elected him Prov. D.G. Master, and P.G. Master in 1865. In 1880 Re was appointed the first lecture master for the whole of the district and in 1881 district trustee. In 1883 he was elected to the responsible position of trustee to the district nietjilTN., and in every instance he had discharged his duties with every satisfaction (applause). Bro. Davies had atteuded A.M.C.'a at Southnort, Cardiff, Xottingham, Reading, Stafford, Dover, and North- ampton, and had taken part in the business transac- tions in a creditable manner (hear, hear). The speaker urged the younger members of the Order to follow the splendid example -of Bro. Davies, who had not been out of office for forty-two years (applanse).-P.P.G.M. John Howells, district trustee, said lie had known Bro. Davies for over 30 years, and had pleasure in testifying to the creditable manner in which he had filled "the various offices entrusted to him. The other ?|>eakera foHowed in a similar strain, including P.P.G.M. Watkin Meredith (Sons of Llywelvn Lodge), P.P.G.M. Joseph Saunders (Lord John Russel Lodg-e). P.P.G.M. George Rogers (Lily of the Valley Lodge), P.G. Francis Price (Noah's Ark Lodge), P.G. David D. Rees (Cyfarthfa Castlo Lodare), P.C. Tom Elias, P.G. Zehalon Williams, and P.G.
