MOUNTAiN ASH CHECKWEICHERS AND CHARITY. "Sympathetic Worker" writes as fol- lows Your readers will remember some time ago the dismissal of 61 aged workmen from Messrs. Nixon's Moun- tain Ash Collieries. Since then 19 of that number have been passed as able- bodied and have accordingly been rein- stated at their work. It has been free- .suggested in the place that some scheme should be promoted in order to get a few pounds to benefit those of them who are in real need. A meeting was called last Thursday evening by Mr John Jefferies for the purpose of carry- ing the scheme into operation. 'Honest John,' always to the fore in charitable matters, had obtained permission from tho manager, Mr. Thomas Williams, to sell tickets in the works. He had also been promised a bioscope show free of cost, and all the artistes had promised to attend without fees. Naturally one would expect, with such a splendid start and a little help-the sort that is always worth a ton of pity-the benefit would be a great success. What was the result of the meeting? Nil, abso- lutely nil. Not a single checkweigher turned up, nor did any of them respond to the summonses. Two committee- men, Messrs. E. Mantle, 6 Pamela St., and James Jones, 3 Phillips St., were the only ones present. The questions that are now being asked are Where were they? Why didn't they respond? Perhaps the answer will be given later, and while the grass is growing the horses will be starving. These men have fought for the Federation, and have passed the 'show cards constables' with honour to themselves. Cannot something be done, and at once?"
MOUNTAIN ASH. PERSONAL.—There was a large con- gregation at Canaan English Cong. Chapel, Miskin, on Sunday evening, when the pulpit was occupied by Mr. Ira J. Mann. This young man is a native of Penrhiwceiber, being the son of Mr. Reuben Mann (G.W.R., Moun- tain Ash). With him it is certainly not the case of a prophet without praise in his own country, for he made a good impression on Sunday night. Mr. Mann is leaving on Thursday for Mel- bourne, Australia, sailing from Liver- pool by the Persic. He is by nature a preacher, but he started life, like many others of our great preachers, as a collier. He worked for some time in the collieries at Mountain Ash. After- wards he joined the G.W.R., but for the last two years he has been a student at Cliff College, Calver, Sheffield. His many friends wish him every success in the great work he has taken up.

The remains of the young man will be conveyed to the Jewish Cemetery at Cardiff. WEDDING.

He was secretary of the colliery sick fund, and since the in- ception of the Workmen's Approved Society, under the National Insurance Act, was its secretary, and he was, also the colliery representative upon the Glamorgan County Insurance Com- mittee appointed by the Insurance Com- missioners. He was also the represen- tative for the colliery workmen upon the Pontypridd Cottage Hospital Management Committee. In many other matter? appertaining to local affairs he has exercised the greatest tact and ability. All the workmen and officials deeplv regret his departure, but 1 it is with the greatest pleasure that they 1 wish him every success. Signed, • Bruce Jones (agent), Tudor Davies (manager).

MEMS FROM THE MOUNT. A correspondent suggests that the Darran Las comedy smacks of the flavour of "The Taming of the Shrew." To whom did the paving stones be- long? While Dai was playing Tommy I y Dodd they were missing, and even the lady claimed them. Has anyone ever seen Idris playing three handed snookerr Never in doubt." A lady of Caegarw who had half a dozen eggs sent home found to her sur- prise that one of them was hard boiled. The chicken that laid that egg is herebv chided for such disgraceful conduct.. Prominently displayed in a Mount fruiterer's window was the following de- scription: "English Tomatoes, grown in Spain." What price Spanish Onions grown in England? A lady in Kingcraft Street writes me that her only son was 19 years of age last Monday and that the Prince of j Was a^so age on Monday and that her boy is very much like His Royal Hignness. I happened to be born on the same date as the German Emperor, but that is the only particu- lar in which I resemble the Kaiser. A gentleman who professes some skill in the art of billiards, sat down and swallowed "the rest." Never in doubt. Whatever is the matter with the Mountain Ash cricketers r Look at the paltry score of 9 runs thev were dis- missed for, and by Llantwit Vardre of all teams. A suggestion to the team- call up some reserves from the Higher Standard or the County School team. The Mount boys had the distinction of gaining 7 ducks at Llantwit. Some- body suggests that Mr. Ernie Edwards frightened the players with his ban- tams. Lewis, of the Higher Standard team, tor the third time this season, scored IS runs. Very consistent Lewis. Con- sider yourself promoted to "the old firm." Boulton, for the Higher Standard, took 8 wkts for 9 runs, and Tom Jones for the County School 6 for 6 runs. Hugh Mulvey had the honour of being top scorer, with .3 runs out of a grand total of 9 runs.

New Theatre, Aberdare. Pictures by Mr. Cherry Kearton. Mr. Cherry Kearton "hunted big game." Not with rifle or shot-gun, hut with a camera. Into the Jungles of India Mr. Kearton carried his picture- camera, and brought back moving pic- tures of wild elephants and man-eating tigers. Over the mountains and prairies of "Wild West America" Mr. Kearton continued his "moving picture hunt." Bears climbed trees in the Rocky Mountains in search of food, un- consciously posing for this intrepid photographer. We see the largest herd of buffaloes now in existence, roaming along a mountain side and staring at us as they stared with amazement at Mr. Kearton while he aimed his film-gun at their midst. Joining Buffalo Jones and his American Cowboys. Mr. Kearton travelled through the forests and plains of British Enst Africa. &4" ''Y'W-1Y'¡.¡;«' When the bioscope was invented, he, and his brother, Richard Kearton, suc- ceeded in taking a remarkable series of moving pictures of birds and the smaller British fauna. Owing to the success of these pictures, Mr. Kearton and his brother were summoned by the King (when Prince of Wales) to lecture before the Royal Family. On his trip into British East Africa, Mr. Kearton met with the expedition under Cdlonel Roosevelt, the most famous and distingushed American "big game" hunter of to-day. Of Mr. Kearton's African trip and its results, Col. Roosevelt says, a really phen- omenal record of a really phenomenal feat." These pictures will be exhibited at the New Theatre next week.

The programme a.t the local ball this week is headed by Seymour and Mead, Comedy Duo, in their popular sketch, The Soldier and the Maid. Their quaint ways and peculiar style are quite unique. The! principal pictures are: "Red Saun.dentP Sacrifice," featuring love and duty; "Kings of the Forest," a powerful dramatic episode. Comedy is represen- ted by "Ca«e of Burglars and Shock- in!l? Coin plaint," which are found to be very interesting. The orchestral music is of the latest. A journal of recent events comple.tes the programme.
