S.E.W.U.S.—The quarterly meetings of the South East Wales Unitarian Society 'were held at Highland Place Church on Monday. In the absence of Councillor L N.

On the motion of the chairman, seconded by Mr Gomer Thomas, the question of affiliat- ing with the South Wales Unitarian As- sociation was referred to the Executive.

Arthur Gol- land conducted the introductory part of the service, and the Rev. F. Blount Mott delivered a discourse on U What is worth while?" CHURCH MISSION LEAGUE.-There 'was a crowded congregation at the Me- morial Hall last Sunday evening, it being the last service conducted by Mr. Clayton, lay reader, prior to his depar- ture for Rochdale. Mr. Clayton gave a brief review of his labours in Aberdare during his 18 years stay in the town. At the close of the meeting there we,re many tears and handshakes, and regret at Mr. Clayton's departure was generally ex- pressed. "God be with you till we meet again was sung with much feeling, the solo being taken by Mrs. Thomas, late of Robertstown. In the afternoon, at 2, Mr. Clayton had bidden farewell to his Sunday School scholars in Green-street, and at 3.15 a special service for men was held at the Mission Rccms. The good- byes and desires for God-speed were mingled with many tears. The climax was reached at Green-street. Long be- fore the time for starting the room was crowded. It was a grand sight. Young and old, past and present members of the "Green-street Mission came from all parts to say Good-bye"" to their friend and counsellor, one who was always ready to advise and help. The service commenced by the singing of that old favourite, "Hark, my soul, it is the Lord." The less on was read by Mr. G. Lee, who has worked with Mr. Clayton ever since he came to Aberdare. After singing, There is a fountain filled with blood," Mr. Clayton gave his last address, in which lie urged the people to make better use of the rooms which he had worked to get for them. At the close of the service, "God be with you till we meet again," was sung, and the pathcs of the hymn was fully realised on this oc- casion. At the station on Monday the people of Green Street—young and old— had assembled to say U Good-bye" to their old friend, and to wish him well in his new parish.

Cwmaman. If in need of artificial teeth don't fot get to consult Messrs. Shipway and Williams, Mountain Ash, who visit Cwff-aman every Tuesday from 2 to p m., opposite the Co-open fcive Stores COMPETITIVE CONCERT.—On Mon- day evening last a concert was held at the Public Hall in aid of Mr. William Morgan, Aberneol-street, who has been ill and unable to work for a long period. In the absence of Mr. Benjamin Lewis, colliery manager, the chair was occupied by Mr Gwilym Evans, Brynhyfryd. The adjudicators were: Music, Mr. Philip R,ee6, A.C., Abercwmboi; recitations, Mr Henry Davies, Corwen Villa, Aberaman. Messrs. William James and Zachariah Davies had acted as adjudicators in the test, and Madam W. J. Watts acted as accompanist throughout the evening.. After an opening song by Mr. William James (Eos Morganwg), the female solo competition was proceeded with, in. which there were 15 entries. Four well-known vocalists survived the test in the persons of Miss M. A. Caldicott, who sang Tor- iad y dydd"; Mrs. Maggie Davies (Llinos Llwchwr), who sang H Hear, ye Israel"; Mrs. Lizzie Lewis, Aberaman, who sang "Darlun fy mam," and Miss Mary Phillips, Aberneol, whose solo was The Children's Home." The marks awarded each one were: No. 1, 15; No. 2, 17; No. 3, 16; No. 4, 16. The prize was therefore awarded to Llinos, Llwchwr. The next item was the open recitation competition, in which eleven had entered and three were finally chosen to go to the stage. These were E.R.E., who recited Mr. Moody a'r fam a'r plentyn Glyndwr," who recited" The women of Mumbles Head," and H. Williams, whose recitation was The progress of madness." The prize was awarded to Glyndwr," whose proper name did not transpire. There were only four com- petitors for the male solo, and therefore it was at first abandoned. When a fifth competitor appeared upon the stage, however, a considerable hubbub was raised by the audience, who evidently re- cognised in him a local champion. It transpired that he was Mr. Gwilym Jones, a membed of the Meibion Dar Male Voice Party, and the objections of the people were so persistent that he was finally forced to withdraw. Out of the four who sang, the prize was awarded to Mr. John Jones, Kiln-street, Aberaman, who sang, "Llong a'r Goleudy." The most interesting competition of the evening was for children's choirs upon the test piece, "I sing because I love to sing" (Pinsuti). Three choirs sang:- Soar C.M. Juvenile Choir, Cwmaman, conductor, Mr. David Davies (Derwydd); Saron Congregational Juvenile Choir, Aberaman, conductor, Mr. Wm. Jones; and .seioll Baptist Juvenile Choir, Cwm- aman, conductor, Mr. W. Clay Jenkins, A.C. The first choir was awarded 33 marks, the second 33 marks, and the third 35 marks. The prize of L-3 was therefore awarded to Seion Choir. The e-ecretaria.1 arrangements were success- fully carried out by Mr. Wm. Williams, Tanyard-place, Aberaman.
