Nodion. Mr. Jesse Collings, ac yntau yn Un- debwr ei hunan, a gyffelyba aelodau y blaid Undebol i rai yn crwydro yn yr anialwch heb arweinydd. Nid dyma y tro cyntaf mewn hanesiaeth i ddefaid Jesse fod yn yr anialwch heb fugail. Darllener hanes Dafydd. Nid mel a mwyniant ydyw bywyd gweinidog ar Eglwys Ymneillduol. Y mae Ficer yn Eglwys Loegr yn ddyn dedwydd. Nid ydyw yn gyfrifol i neb end i'w Esgob, ac nid yw y Curad yn gyfrifol i neb ond i'r Ficer. Ond y mae y gweinidog Ymneillduol at drugaredd ehwil-lys y set fawr. Os bydd iddo gythruddo rhai o aelodau y llys hwnw da fuasai i'r dyn hwnw pe nas ganesii ef. Gall edrych allan am faen melin ac eigion mor fuan ag y dewiso, oblegyd bydd priddellau'r dyffryn yn felus iddo ar ol iddo gynyrchu chwerwedd yn myn- wesau U autocrats" y sedd fawr. Dywedir yn fynych fod yr eglwysi Y ill. neillduol wedi eu sefydlu ar egwyddorion gwerinol. Ond gall gothrwm gwerin- iaeth fod mor anioddefol a gorthrwm un- benaeth. Yn gyffredin y mae y ddiacon- iaeth yn gymysgryw yn ei chyfansodd- iad. Gwneir hi i fyny o ddwsin, mwy neu lai, o ddynion o wahanol dueddiad- au, ac yn ami o wahanol gredoau. Ond y drwg ydyw fod gan y dynion hyn yn gyffredin eu "hobbies"-eu oefifylau pren, y rhai a farchogant i farwolaeth yn mron. Gyrant y ceffylau hyn ar draws teimladau. eu cyd-ddiaconiaid a chyd- aelodau, ac yn ami ca y gweinidog ei hunan dan eu carnau. Peth digon annymunol ydyw dyn croes mewn eglwys. Mae yn waeth na gwraig anynad yn y cylch teuluol. Ond pan y ceir haner dwsin o'r cyfryw ddynion wedi gweithio en ffordd i'r set fawr, y mae yn ddifrifol. Yn wyneb hyn a.i ni fyddai yn well i heddwch yr eglwys a'r gweinidog i ddiddymu y set fawr ? Gwir fod ambell i ddiaconiaeth o help mawr i'r gweinidog. Sicrhaodd y Parch. B. V. Tidman, Mountain Ash, mewn cyfarfod sefydlu yn Carmel, Aberdar, yn ddi- veddar, fod diaconiaid ei eglwys ef wedi bod o gymhorth mawr iddo. Felly y dylai fod, ac felly y byddai ped elai dyn- ion i'r eedd fawr gyda'r amcan o helpu y gweinidog a llwyddo yr eglwys, ac nid i csod eu huaain ar drostan awdurdod gan lefain, "Weilch y fainc, welwch chwi V!" Mewn amryw o eglwysi yn Nyffryn Aberdar yn ddiweddar nid ydyw pobpeth wedi bod yn dda rhwng y gweinidog ar diaconiaid. Y mae gweinidog eglwye Fethodistaidd Libanus, Aberaman, wedi dod i wrthdaxawiad a rhai o gedrwydd y set fawr gyda'r canlyniad fod y gwersyll wedi ei ranu. Yn Eglwys Fedyddiol y Gadlys bu hefyd ymrafael rhwng y wein- idogaeth a.'r flaenoriaeth, a'r canlyniad fu i'r bugail geisio a chael corlan o swn y storm a'i chlyw. Ac yn awr mewn addoldy arall yn yr un heol—sef Capel yr Annibynwyr-wele gynnen rhwng y pwl- pud a'r &et fawr. Y Sul o'r blaen pre gethodd y gweinidog ei bregeth ymadaw- cl, aT destyn ydoedd, 'fYmaith ag ef, croeshoelia ef." Yr ydym yn c-yfeirio at \r engreifEtiau a nodwyd i ddangos fod rhywboth o chwith yn rhywle, ac i brofi. fod eisieu diwygiad yn mherthynas y weinidogaelh a'r ddiaconiaeth. Nid diffyg yn perthyn i enwad nellduol ydyw, gan fod y tair eglwys a nodwyd yn perthyn i dri chyfundeb gwahanol. Etholwyi y diaconiaid cyntaf-y eeith- wyr da eu gair, i wasanaethu byrddau, ac i edrych ar ol materion tymhorol yr eglwysi. Ond yn ami yn y dyddiau hyn nid ydyw y blaenoriaid yn foddlon ar fod yn "Board of Directors," yn gofalu am gyllid yr eglwys a materion cyffelyb. Y6tyriant eu hunain yn censors" y weinidogaeth ao apwyntiant eu hunain yn expert critics" pregethwyr. Y sawl a fynant a laddant a'r sawl a fyn- ant a gadwant yn fyw. Y canlyniad yn ami ydyw rhwyg yn yr eglwys a llythyr ysgar oddiwrth neu i'r gweinidog. Efallai, wedi'r cwbl, mai diwygio ac nid diddymu y ddiaooniaeth a fyddai oreu. Gwneler yr un pl-th a Thy Ar- glwyddi y weinidogaeth ag a fwriedir wneyd a Thy Arglwyddi Westminster- torer eu hewinedd, a chwtoger eu hadenydd. Rhaid cael rhywrai i drafod y materion bydol sydd yn anwahanol gysylltiedig a'r eglwysi, ond myned pob gweinidog newydd gytundeb a'r ddiacon- iaeth na bydd i'r diaconiaid ymyryd a'i fusnes ef. Myned y diaooniaid hefyd, os dewisant, sierwydd na bydd i'r gweinidog sangu ar eu terfyngylch hwy. Yr hyn sydd eisieu ydyw penodi ei swyddogaeth i'r gweinidog, a'r un modd i'r blaenor- iaid, a phob un i ofalu am ei fusnes ei hun. Mor syml, onidel Y mae Mr. Spencer Leigh Hughes, yr awdwr doniol ae enwog, wedi bod yn treulio peth amser yn nghymydogaeth Pcnt-y-gwr-drwg, ac wedi ysgrifenu darn- au ysbrydoledig neillduol o'r fangre hono. Gyda llaw, dywedir mai yn y gymydog- aeth hon yr ysbrydolwyd Handel i gyfansoddi yr "Hallelujah Chorus." Ac wedi'r cyfan parheir i gysylltu enw yr ysbryd drwg a'r lie! Eglur yw fod Methodistiaid Cwrnbach yn llawn o ysbryd anturiaethus mewn pethau erefyddol. Y mae capel Ebenezer i gael ei ail-adeiladu, ac amcan-gyfrifir y gost yn d £ 2,500. Y Parch R. Roberta ydyw y gweinidog. Cyll Cwmbach wasanaeth gwerthfawr y Parch. D. M. Davies, yr hwn sydd wedi ei benodi i ofal Llyfrfa newydd yr en- wad Annibynol. Gorphenodd Mr. Davies ei weinidogaeth yn y Cwm y Sul wythnos i'r diweddaf. Weie un ychwanegiad yn rhagor at ferthyron y lofa yn mherson y diweddar Llew Dar.

Dywedir wrthym nad ydyw addoldy Bethel yn y Gadlys, ond yn Nhrecynon, ac fod yr afon anweledig, yr hon ydyw y ffin rhwng Trecynon a'r Gadlys, yn llifo rhwng capel Bethel a chapel y Gad- lys.

Aberdare and District Photographic Notes. BY "ROLLO." "How is So-and-So getting on with his Photography ?" is often asked of a mutual friend, and the invariable answer is, at least in the early stages of the new craze, Oh! he's mad upon it," and we should be very disappointed, probably, if it were otherwise. There is no doubt about it at all; for when a reasonably in- telligent person takes up this fascinating pursuit, and makes a. little progress, it becomes for the time being an all absorb- ing subject. Personally, I am acquainted with several amateurs that can easily be classed amongst the aforegoing, but I should seriously object to insinuate that they were mad upon their hobby, prefer- ing rather to say that "they were very enthusiastic." Of course, there are var- ious degrees of enthusiasm, but it only fell to my lot the other day to quite ap- preciate what this really did mean. The experience was an, eye-opener to the writer, who considers himself a fairly busy man, and takes all his hobbies more or less seriously, but I will say right here that I never did know what could be done in the way of enthusiastic working, until I came across my young' friend. This worker gets one day per week that he can devote entirely to his hobby, and 'a,s it was my lot to see the greater part of one day's work I will try and de. scribe how he got on. He had to ar'se pretty early in the morning, as he had placed some dozen t-pl.a.te frames out to print the night before, and by 10 o'clock he had printed 3 dozen postcards.. Dur- ing the printing, he had prepared his copying table, fixed up the camera, and loaded 3 dark slides. After taking in his frames, he proceeded to copy 6 various sized photographs for ultimate enlarg- ing, and as soon as the copying was com- pleted, the platen were developed, fixed, and put into the tank to wash. While this was taking place dinner was served, the conversation being mainly of a photo- graphic nature. Resuming operations, lie set about turning out a half dozen 12 by 10 enlargements from negatives that had been prepared the week oefore, and this work fully occupied us until tea- time. Tea being over, I expected that my busy friend would now take a rest, but this was not to be, as a big Gold Ton- ing Bath was quickly prepared, and some 50 miscellaneous sized prints were ton-d, fixed and placed in the washer. For the next hour or so lie continuaJly changed the water, with occasional squeegeeing of the wet prints, and finally they were put to dry. My young enthusiast remarked. as he washed his dishes and beakers, that "he thought he had about f-inishe-d," a remark that I fully endorsed. Now, for an amateur, T thought this was a fairly good day's work, which I am assured is not uncommon to him. AVliether there are many more like him I am not prepared to say, but this in- stance gave me a very good idea what TVas meant by "an enthusiastic worker." II Not many amateur workers take up C.C. (Collodian-Chloride) Paper for their printing operations, and the reason for it, I think, is the difficulty in working the paper while it is in. a wet state. Its extremely bad habit of curling during all the operations of toning and fixing makes it hard and trying, and I fear there is no satisfactory method of over- coming it. Again, the advice to use a Gold bath in addition to the Platinum bath, probably, deters many, but if the very fine results obtained by this method in treating the paper is taken into con- sideration, the extra work is fully justi- fied. It is not absolutely essential, how- ever, that the two baths should be used, for exceptionally fine black tones can be obtained upon many makers' paper, with the Platinum Bath alone. The Leto Co. and The Rotary Co., to mention only two makers, all turn out a paper that will do all that is desired with the single Y bath, and those that seek another print- I ing process additional to the ordinary F.O.P. should obtain a sample packet of either papers, follow the directions given with the packet closely, and they will be agreeably surprised with the results. There are one or two points to observe in connection with this process that I had better touch upon in recommending this trial, and shortly they are these. The most suitable negative is one, that will give a good print upon ordinary P.O.P., but as the paper prints very quickly, the frames should be examined earlier than is customary, also more often; taking extreme care to do so 'n shaded light, as the paper is very sensi- tive and easily degrades. Further, printing must be carried further than in P.O.P., in fact until the shadows are slightly bronzed, the toning bath will put that right, as it has a strong reducing action. After thorough, washing the prints may be dried before the fire, if necessary, and mounting presents no diffi culty. Vignetting gives some most deli- cate shading, the tones of the finished print arc extremely pleasing, soft, and smooth, and the texture of the who^e pic- ture is a great advance upon anything that I have ever seen produced upon any other print out paper. Try it!
Death of Llew Dar. THE INQUEST. On Friday an inquest was held at Aberdare by Mr. R. J. Rhys, coroner, touching the death of Mr. Wm. Evans (Llew Dar), Graig-place, who met with injuries at the Cwmaman Colliery on the 4th inst. Mr. Saint, H.M. Inspector of Mines, watched the' case on behalf of the Home Office; Mr. C. B. Stanton, miners' agent, on behalf of the Miners' Feder- ation; and Mr. W. Thomas, solicitor, Station-street, on behalf of the family. Mr. R. R. Davies, the manager, attended on behalf of the company. After evidence of identification had been given by deceased's son, John Davies, a boy, gave evidence stating that he was working with deceased as a col- lier. At 9.30 on Sept. 4th they were U cropping the bast." Deceased was in a stooping position when a large stone from the top struck him on the back. They had tapped the top previously, and it sounded like a bell. John Hanley stated that he was the first to get at the deceased after the acci- dent. He found him on his knees, the stone having rolled off his back. The lower part of his body seemed quite powerless. Wm. Thomas, fireman, testified to visiting deceased's working place in the morning and found it all right. R. R. Davies, the manager, corroborated. Dr. W. Ll. Rhys, who attended Evans, said that he suffered from fracture of the spine. A verdict of "Accidental Deathwas returned. THE FUNERAL. The interment of the remains of the late Mr. William Evans took place at Aberdare Cemetery on Monday. The funeral was attended by hundreds of the residents of Aberdare and neighbour- hood, including a large number of choir leaders and leading musicians, as well as a strong contingent of deceased's fellow workmen. Cwmaman Colliery, where he had been employed, suspended operations at 1 o'clock. Wreaths had been received from: The Family; Mrs. Clement, Aber- dare (daughter); Aberdare Workmen's Club, and others. The mourners included deceased's three sisters, Messrs. J. W. Evans and Joseph Evans (brothers), Willie and Cledivyii. Evans (sons), John Evans and D. Windsor Evans, Catherine-street (cousin and nephew)-, J. Evans and W. Evans, EL T. Evans, D. Evans (Dewi Dar), T E. Powell, and D. M. Powell. The. Rev. W. O. Powell officiated at the house and the graveside.

Vbernant Youth's Hearty Meal. CAUSES SUDDEN DEATH. On Monday, at the Aberilare Police station, Mr. I'. J. Rhys held an inquest ouching the death of Morgan Thomas, 7, Long-row, Abernant. Samuel Thomas, the father, gave evi- dence of identification. He stated that his son was 18 years of age, and wa,s a sollier employed at Blaenant Pit. He worked last Friday. He went to bed about 11 on Friday night, making no complaint whatever. About 1.50 he heard his son groaning, and went to him. He could not speak a word. Witness shook l,im gently, and tried to revive him. He died shortly afterwards. He was a fair- Iv strong boy, although when young he had had an attaek of St. Vitus dance. He supped about 10.30. taking brsad and butter and celery and cocoa. He had eaten very heartily. Dr. Dontburst, assistant to Dr. E. Jones, said that he was called to deceased at 3.30 on Saturday morning. He was dead at the time. He believed that eat- ing a very hearty meal contributed to his death. He attribued death to car- dial syncope due to ovcr-distention of the stomach. The Coroner remarked that the old saying's recommendation was, "After -upper walk a. mile." This young man had retired to bed immediately after eat- ing a hearty supper. A verdict in accordance with the medi- cal evidence was returned.
A Famous Physician Prescribes a Simple Remedy for Increasing strength and flesh. An eminent physician, who is well known as a specialist and author, writes: No treatment for Phthisis, or weak lungs, would be complete without Dr. Cassell's Tablets. I have subjected these tablets to the severest tests and the re- sults were of the most satisfactory kind. They increase stiength and develop flesh by their power to aid assimilation. I at- tribute several important cures mainly to the timely use of these tablets-they have bean added to my list of successful medicines. Surely the unbiassed opinion of such a great authority is sufficient to convince sufferers from nerve troubles, stomach and kidney disorders, thinness and weak- ness of the body, wrecked constitution, decline, and similar ailments, that 10td. laid out in a box of this successful remedy would be greatly to their advan- tage. Any chemists can supply Dr Cas- sell's Tablets.

Grand Organ Recital at Trecynon. Another red letter day was reached in the history of Mill Street Welsh Baptist Chapel on Thursday evening, the occasion of the opening of the new pipe organ. Except a harmonium for the use of meet- ings in the Vestry, there was no instru- ment at this place of worship, all the hymn singing on Sundays being unac- companied. The installation of" such a. magnlhcen t organ, tnererore, marKs a new departure in this church, of which the Rev. W. Cynog Williams is the talented and popular pastor. In arranging the programme for the organ recital, the committee did not stint themselves. They obtained the best material," with the result that the crowded audience included the elite of Musical Aberdare. The organist was Mr Harry Evans, F.R.C.O., Liverpool, and he was supported by Miss Eva Hall, Ferndale (contralto), and Mr. Richard Thomas, Llanelly (tenor). Mrs. G. George, The Laurels, occupied the chair, and she was supported on the platform by Councillor Griffith George, J.P., and Rev. Cynog Williams. In opening the concert, Mrs. George remarked that she was pleased to preside over that gathering. She had at all times been fond of music, especially the music of the sanctuary, and she was always prepared to do whatever she could to further and improve it. (Applause.) Mr Harry Evans' first contribution was Sonata. da Camera" (Dr. Pleace), a piece which he gave with thrilling effect. That the audience appreciated it was shown by the enthusiastic manner in which they applauded. Next came Miss Eva Hall, who sang Tti;, Gleaners' Slumber (Walthew) with all her cus- tomary charm. Recital. The Answer (Walsenholme) and H Procession" (Lyon) by Mr. Harry Evans, followed. Then came Mr. Richard Thomas, who received quite an ovation. He gave a magnificent rendering of Sound an Alarm (Han- del), and was obliged to repeat the latter portion as an encore. Variations on the Vesper Hymn," Mr. Harry Evans, was superbly executed, and "Peace and Rest" by Miss Eva Hall brought the first part of the programme to a close. The Welsh section of the audience had something to their liking next. "Yr Eos," by Dr. Parry, is a. soft, supple, al- most pathetic piece of music, and Mr. Richard Thomas did full justice to it. Fantasia Pastorale (Harry Evans) depicts first of all the song of the shep- herd, then the storm, followed by a sud- den calm, and prayer. These phases were worked out to a nicety by Mr. Evans, the beautiful tone of the organ coming into excellent play. In response to continued cheering, he gave The Hallelujah Chorus." Nearer my God to Thee" (Lewis Carey), sung by Miss Hall, was also encored. The other items were U Margarita" (Lohr), Mr. Richard Thomas, and The Angel's Farewell" and "Imperial March" (Elgar) by Mr. Harry Evans. The committee who had charge of the arrangements included Councillor Griffith George (chairman). Councillor M. J.

Aberdare's Oldest Resident. HONOURED ON HIS 90th BIRTHDAY. On Sunday afternoon the first of a ser- ies of addresses to men was given at St. Elvan's Church in connection with St. John's Bible Class. The Rev. W. H. Jones, B.A., presided, and an excellent address was given by the Rev. M. Powell, B.A., Vicar of Aberaman. There was a large number present, who greatly ap- preciated Vicar Powell's discourse. At the close the class retired to the green outside the church, where an interesting presentation was made. The recipient was Mr. Knapman, who is the eldest gen- tleman in the Bible Class. It was in tho fitness of things that the presentation should be made to Mr. knapman on his 90th b'rthday. The gift took the form of an autograph album hearing a suitable inscription, the work of Mr John Davies, Oxford-street. The gift was handed over to Mr. Knapman by the teacher, Rev. W. H. Jones, in a few well chosen words. Messrs. T. Lloyd, churchwarden, and C. R Vicary also spoke a few appropriate words. Mr. Knapman, who was greatly moved, uttered a few words of thanks in broken tones, remark'ng that his heart was too full for words. Mr. Knapman, who is a gentleman greatly respected in Aberdare, is the father-in-law of Mr. J. Bradley Morris, of the Aberdare Post Office. He enjoys the best of health, and is remarkably ac- tive despite his advanced age. He was in his time in business as a grocer' in Swansea, how which he retired some 30 years ago. and came to reside in Aber- dare. He is a supernumerary sidesman at St. Elvan's Church, and his unswerv- ing fidelity to the Church has always been a conspicuous trait in his character. As the hobby of a well-earned leisure Mr Knapman takes great delight in mak'ng rustic chairs and stools, which he pre- sents to char'table institutions. With- out doubt he is the oldest resident ef Aberdare. In addition to the af ore-mentioned gift, Mr. Knapman is also to be presented with a portrait of himself to be executed by Mr. J. Harries, Triumph Studio. I Each member of the Bible Clasfi will be inesented with a copy.
Revising Barrister at Aberdare. On Friday Mr. Ivor Bowen, the revis- ing barrister, at the Vestry Hall, Aber- dare, revised the lists of voters for the parish of Aberdare., for the Parlia- mentary borough of Merthyr Tydfil and the county of Glamorgan. The lists were presented by Mr D. W. Price, the assistant overseer, and Mr T. Anearyn Rees, the town clerk of Merthyr, respec- tively. In the county list there were no contested claims. In the borough the Liberals were represented by Mr. D. M. Richards, assisted by Messrs. D. ReeiS Charles and E. H. Evans, the Conserva- tives by Mr. Harry Weston, assisted by Mr. John Davies, and the Labour Party by Mr. E. Stonelake, assisted by Mr. Isaac Griffiths. Mr. Richards elicited that Mr. Weston had not supplied the list of the Liberals whom he objected to, and had not sent them any notices. He therefore asked the Revising Barrister to accept the claims as prima facie evi- dence of facts, and not to accept any evi- dence against that unless the parties had notice which would enable them to bring rebutting evidence. The Revising Bar- rister sustained his contention, and said that unless a claim was bad on its face he would pass it. Mr. John Davies, at the outset, said that his side were not going to make any objections. Mr. Weston: Pardon me, but I am here on beha-lf of the Conservative Party, and I am going to make objections. There are hundreds of names here that have, no right to be here. The Assistant Overseer stated that he had been notified that Alfred Gosney, of Trecynon, had received parish relief dur- ing the year. It transpired that Gosney had been an inmate of Sandgate Sana- torium for a period. Mr. Stonelake held that this should not disfranchise Gosney inasmuch as the relief he received was not parish but medical relief. After some discussion the Revising Barrister struck out the name, holding that the treatment at Sandgate came under the category of parish relief. Mr D. M. Richards held that the form sent in by the Rev. W. H. Jones for a. lodger's vote in respect of 43, High-street, was not va lid inasmuch as no bedroom was specified in the claim. Mr. Weston: But he has a bedroom. 1 have seen. it. Mr. Richards: But it is not stated oil the form. Mr. Richards stated. however, that it being a technical error, lie would not press his objection, and the claim was allowed. The Revising' Barrister said that in future lie would go by the letter of the claim, and would not consent to amend in any wav a form that was not properly filled. Of the 19 objections made by the Liberals 10 were sustained, the result being as follows: Old lodgers' claims sent in—Liberals 338, sustained 33; Conservatives 42, sus- tained 41. New lodgers' claims sent in—Liberals 242, sustained 219; Conservatives 29, sus- tained 19; Independent Labour Party 182, sustained 82. Occupiers' claims sent in-Libenùs 10, sustained 8; Labour Party 1, sus- tained nil; Conservatives nil.
