JBankyfelin Notes. Y DAITH I GELLYWEN. ( Pdrlwd). Pan gyrhaeddaiS Gellywen yr oodd yn dechreu nosi, yr oedd yr haul wedi machlud yn y gorllewin pell, a r newydd loer arian- aidd yn cyflym ddilyn ar ei ol. Yr oedd distawrwydd fel brenin yn teyrnasu ar y wlad o amgyleh. Yr oedd yr amaethwr wedi gadael ei aradr; tinciau eiugion efail y gof wedi tewi; y moliuydd wedi gadael ei felin y crydd ei esgidiau y saer ei goed a'r cobblers ei gloe3. Yr oedd dim yn tori ar y dwfn ddistawrwydd hyn ond llais oerllyd y ddylluan. Yr oedd cory wig wedi roddi eu telynau by chain heibio,ac er ys amser bellach wedi rhoddi eu hunaill i orphwys yn dayol ar fylxwes anwyl brenhincs cwsg. Gwneuthym y goreu o fy fltordd at amaeth- dy oedd gerllaw'r peutrefer mwyn arosdros y nos (er mantais i mi weled yr ardal hyfryd boreu draunoeth). Peth cyutaf oedd yn eisieu oedd cyflawnu anghenrheidiau y dyn oddi mewn (tie inner man). Wedi o-orphen bwyta, tynais sached fawr o'rEoyal Frank lyn o fy mhoced gan ei estyn i wr y ty.

(l'w larhau.J Now, that the Editor has put a stop to all correspondence between the Agricola and t,he "Chokey" armies, we are glad to find time to breathe, for indeed the bombardment had become so terrible that it was dangerous even to be safe. We at Bankyfelin are people of a very sensitve nature. Our feelings are equally awake to praise or censure, and the more soft soaping the better we like it. We are bound together with the bond of affection. If we find anybody making an attack upon any of our neighbours, we are ready to defend him to the elbow in whatever case. If a teetotaler hears a non-resident defending the cause of temperance in the presence of a resident who "likes a drop,rather than blight the fraternal love he throws in his lot with "John Barley Corn" and so we jog along, as if it were hand-m-hand-.determined to impress upon the surroundings the faithful saying In unity is strength." The more we live the more we see, and the more we learn. When one has gone through all the different subjects of an University training, and a diver in philosophy with all the researches of Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, on fingers' ends, yet we are bound to admit that there is still room." And even from such an unimportant (?) village as Bankyfelin there is a lesson to be learnt—a depth to be fathomed It can be seen that we are not people that will allow one another's faults to be exposed for correction. 0 no, far from it What suits us better is to cloak and hide our faults, and if one will say "so and so" is an under-handed sort of a fellow or that"so and so "was drunk at such a time, or that our worthy Mayor had been served with a blue paper we are all on end, and in defence wearing our fiercest expression, enough to convince an Arab "that a lie aint true." Now as it does not suit our taste to say that any of our practices are improper, or rude, it becomes us to say that our way of courting in this neighbourhood is a source of respectability and joviality, namely Caru yn y gwely." Although it is attended with much risk and danger—but the danger does not come from a rival lover," who has lain in ambush. Oh, no; but rather from the" boss" of the house, who comes upon you unawares with poker in hand It is not the affection of the maid of which he is jealous. Not in the least. Perhaps you may think so at first when you come up to the farm, and you throw the first handful of gravel at the window, where the sweet ones are lying. lou find [he next window is opened with a Hop, and the muzz of a "Breacher" projecting forth, going bang! bang just over your head. Ur, jjerhaps you find when your eyes are hxe on the window with expectant joy—you find the door underneath is suddenly opened, and in less time than it takes you to eat your bum you are chased and horse-whipped all round the yard. Sometimes you may wonder why the "boss" takes so much interest in the courtship of his servants, but that can be easily explained when you think lie is fully aware that the less hours you take to refresh your fatigued body, proportionately the less physical force you can afford to throw into his service on the morrow. Two burly-looking farmers were passing remarks about the "Bankyfelin Notes," when one of them said that they were nothing but a lot of rubbish, and were void of the genuine point," naiiiely-iiiorals Here is a chajjter of morals for these gentlemen :— Let your servants have a half-holiday every week. Do not interfere with their courtship. Do not frighten with your guns the chaps who after the weary toil of the day come to see their dear ones." Do not call your servants out of bed about three or four in the morning. Do not let them be at it until late at night. Give plenty of sugar in their tca- Bestow upon them more pleasant looks and less grumbling and growling. When these Gents have done with that lot we may find you some more.

THE LAST JUDGMENT." t.fore a brilliant and appreciative audience, which largely comprised of the (lite of the locality, the Mandilo Choral Society on Thursdny evening, the oq..<1 nf April, crave a performance of Spohr s oratorio, LaSt Judgment."

The artistic efforts of Mrs riWhinson met with a very cordial recognilion, and i,ir! the work afforded opportunities for applause she wmild repeatedly have been the recipient of it. She ^Tpsses a voice of wonderful purity and compass, nd over it has the most perfect control. Priffiths is a local contralto of some promise, and the ^imirable way in which she acquitted herself showed fhat iv selecting her Mr R. C. Jenkins had made no erra of judgment. Her voice blended perfectly with H,n-e of the other artistes, and lier binging gave the m-^test satisfaction. Opinions differed as to the .pritsofMr Robbins, the tenor. He scarcely did inttice to his part, and his voice at times sounded inthfr feeble. Pie, however, has youth on his aide. Tf was evident by the encore he received subsequently his song that ho had his admirers among the Inrl BDCO. Mr D. Hughes was in fine form, and his a'nofritr of the music allotted to him was distinguished Ware dignity, finish, and force. That Mr Hulley leader of the orchestra was a guarantee of i-3 efficiency. Ever) detail was observed vith extreme nicety. The violin bows were going with almost mechanical regularity, so perfect was the pbying. And in fact this very perfection must have helped the choir, though, on the other hand. it indicates the thoroughness of the training it had received. At the conclusion of the oratorio there was applause. Subsequently a miscellaneous programme was rendered. The overture William Tell by the band was a rich treat, and a fine display of executive skill. Mr D. Hughes had to respond to an encore for the "The Soldier's Song." Mrs Hutchinson in "PerIa Gloria entranced the audience in her magnificent rendering of it, and in response to an encore her singing was bewitchingly sweet. Mr Robbing singing of Sweet Memories was well received, and was his best effort. Major Lloyd Harries gave the violin eolo Rapsodie Hongrosie" in his finished style.

Ldward Rogers, Llandilo, did not answer to the summons, but sont his brother to do so. The Bench declined to doal with the cast; in the defendant's absence and a warrant was ordered to issue. CROELTY TO A HORSE. D. B?van admitted a charge of cruelty to a horse by working it in an unfit state. Defendant said he was only acting as he was instructed. Elizabeth Rogers was charged with causing it to be worked. P.O. J. Jones deposed to seeing the horse being worked, and apparently in torture. Under the saddle he found a lorge wound, and all around that a lot of swelling, which, on being touched, made the mare groan. A canvass pad, crusted with matter, was placed between the saddle and sore. Mrs Rogers said the reason why the horse had been worked was because they were so busy with the corn. Mr Benford, the inspector for the R.S.P.C.A., gave similar evidence. Defendant admitted to him that she made the servant work the horse. Three out of the five horses were in an unfit state, but they had only pro- ceeded against Mrs Rogers in one case. He (the Inspector) had never known a worse case. Mrs Rogers, in defence, stated that her foreman had been ill for two months, and she had to trust the care of her horses to her servant man, whom she paid well for his services. She could not look after everything herself.—Mr Strick said that as far as the defendant Bevan was concerned the bench did not think he was much to blame, and would be fined 10s. As far as Mrs Rogers was concerned, he (Mr Stiick) had been on the bench for 14 years, and it was the worst case he had ever heard, and if he had his way he would jilleher;elo. As it was, she would have to yay £ 2 10s and costs. And if she was charged in that court again for such an offence, and he sat on the bench, a fine would not meet the case. It was most scandalous for dumb animals to be treated in that way. NON-PAYMENT OF RATES. James Bevan, collier, Cwinainuian, was charged with non-payment of rates. The wife appeared, and said her husband was unable to appear through illness. The case was adjourned for a fortnight to see if the overseers could recomilend the bench to excuse payment. David Rees was charged with non-payment of rates, which amounted to £ 1 (is Gd. Defendant pleaded inability to pay owing to ill-health for years. The case was adjourned as above.
Presentation to the Rev W. iiomas. INTERESTING MEETING AT WHITE AND. On Thursday afternoon (April 23rd) the members of the Tabernacle (V,;igrcgational Church at. Whitland assembled in their cheerful and commodious chapel, being joined by many ministerial friendof the district, for the purpose of presenting their greatly esteemed pastor, the Rev Wiliiam Thomas, with what was characterised as "A Love Letter from the Church" and a purse of gold. Among those who witnessed the interesting presentation were Dr Enoch Davies, ilrynteify, who presided Mr E. H. James, Pontygrafael; Mr E Jones, M.A., Inter- mediate School, Whitland Mr J. Phillips, Carmarthen Revs, D1 Jones (B), Whitland B Davies, Treleeh 0 R Owen, Glandwr J T Phillips, Hebron I) R Davies, Rhydy- ceisiad Dd Williams, Maenclochog J Williams, Carfan; and D E Williams, He ill lan M es.s W Scourfield, secretary of the testimonial fund, Board Schools, Whitland John Llewellyn, Carnmiles George Lewis, Board (School, Ffynonwen J N Hers, draper, Whitland I) Evans Bristol House, Whith lid; J Rees John, Brixton, Laugharne; E H Jones, Whitland Abbey Rees Davies, road surveyor; P N Owen Whitland W Rees, London House, Whitland; Thomas Williams, 3, Spring-gardens Howell Davies, AVillow Bank; J Griffith Rees, Whit-land; John Williams, Forest-gate J Richards, Millbrook-cottage T Phillips, Brynglas, the treasurer of the testimonial, etc. The Chairman, in opening, expensed nis admiration for Mr Thomas, whom lie had known for many years as an active minister of the Gospel and as one who, in taking part, in politics, generally managed to say the right thing at the right time, and so made eil'ective whatever lie propounded. He had acted on many public committees with Mr Thomas, and had ever found him to be a most useful colleague. Cordial letters of sympathy with the object of the church were read from absentee ministers and laymen, and appropriate addresses were given and inspiriting musical selections rendered, the latter by a well- trained children's choir, the former by the Rev J T Phillips (Hebron), the Rev D E Williams (Henllan), and the Rev J Williams (Carfan), who were followed by the presenta- tion, during which both pastor and people were overcome by no little emotion. Mr T Phillips, Brynglas, the treasurer, presented a purse of old on behalf of the church as well as the address which reads as follows The Rev W Thomas, in tendering his heart- felt thanks, was deeply moved. In a few well-chosen remarks he stated that, in his estimation, the chief features of his life were (J) General usefulness in church denomination and on behalf of his country. This applied to music, politics, Are. (2) Consistent conscientiousness, or conscientious consistency. Both were of great importance to a minister of the Gospel. To lack in either was a source of damaging weakness. (3) Untiring zeal and activity in doing good. He has been at his work almost night and day, and had had few vacations since he became a minister. (4) Religious latitudinarianism. Latitudinarianism was sinful unless governed by religion. His Christianity was broader than his Congregationalism. It was, lie said, broad enough to include all good men belonging to all denominations, ages, and countries. He had never erred in ignoring the intelligence and good qualities of those who differed from him. (•">) Supremacy of direct ministerial work. Neither the Press nor political calls had been allowed to injuriously interfere with pulpit and pastoral duties. (6) The best type of loyalty was to voice the voice of the people. Under certain circumstances, lie believed that I ox Popxdi was Vox Dei. This accounted for his serving on School Boards, District Council, Boards of Guardians, and County Council. Loyalty to principles, conscience, and God was what he had strongly advocated. He considered that that testimonial was an impetus to further work, and he, in resuming his seat, once more thanked his flock from the bottom of his heart for their kindness to him. Congratulatory addresses were delivered by the Rev D Jones, Mr E H James, Mr Howell Davies, Rev 0 R Owen, Rev B Davies (Trelech), and Rev DR Davies. Rev W Thomas, who has been one of the most energetic workers on the public bodies of Carmarthenshire was born at Llanguicke, in the county of Glamorgan. He was born in the year of the great Reform Bill, on the 20th of March, 1832, and the inquiry suggests itself whether this coincidence influenced in any degree his subsequent career in life ? Be that as it may, the minister of hitland has s I from the days of his youth been an ardent reformer, and has participated, and always in the van, in countless struggles for the recognition of the civil and religious rights of the people. His parents, William and Joan Thomas, were members of the Congregational Church at Cwmllynfell, and it was here that Mr Thomas, when a mere lad, was admitted to full membership in the church by the Hev llhys Price, who was then pastor. In those days an elementary school was kept near the chapel by the Rev John Jones, afterwards of Cincinnati, America, and it was under tuition, here and at Carmel, that Mr Thomas was initiated into the mysteries of the taree R s. There is reason to believe that his thoughts turned towards the ministry at a very early ao-e and happily the Fates favoured him tor, as the result of an address he delivered on the importance of the office of Sunday school teacher at a quarterly meeting, the church and its pastor recognised his capabilities, and uraed him to prepare for the minist erial calling It was at the Louse of David Williams, ot Dolgan, that lie delivered his first sermon. He was then only sixteen years old, but the sermon gave every satisfaction, and the lad was placed under the tuition first of Daniel Thomas, and afterwards of the Rev S. Davies, of Cwmamman. and lie was admitted into Brecon College some time in Here he remained for three and a half years, when a hearty invitation reached him to undertake the pastorate of the Soar and Bethel "reIsh Congregational Churches at Whitland. The young student eventually decided to accept the call, and his induction to the pastorate took place on the 25th and 2Gth of December, 1855. The connection thus formed has survived for 40 years, and the 40th anniversary of the rev. gentleman's arduous and fiuceessfuI pastorate has now been celebrated with that heartiness that befitted so interesting an event. Taking a retro- spective glance of the period of his pastorate we find that, whereas Bethel Church at, the time of his ordination numbered only GO members, it has to-day a membership of 120, exactly double, while the membership of Zoar (or "Tabernacle," as it is now cabled) has during that period increased more than six- fold, having gone up from (i0 to 400. Of the 1:20 members at the two churches in 1855, 29 only remain to-day -1C at Bethel and 13 at the Tabernacle. The statistics at the churches disclose also the fact that, during the 40 years, Mr Thomas admited as many as 1,722 mem- bers by letters and from the world"; that he has officiated at 735 funerals, and composed and delivered over 5,000 sermons One of his admirers describes him as a most careful pastor, full of sympathy and tenderness, always ready to assist, and understands human nature thoroughly." Essentially a man of the people, the pastor of Whitland has long been renowned as a courageous and fearless exponent of the people s progress in all its various forms, and it would be difficult to mention any great public movement in his county or in Wales with which his name is not prominently identified. In the memor- able days of the anti-tithe campaign he laboured hard, on the platform and in the Press, to oppose the perpetuation of an in- justice which permitted the struggling farmer to be oppressed for the maintenance of an alien Establishment, .and his handbooks on alien Establishment, and his handbooks on Tithes and The Disestablishment Campaign contain the best possible evidence that in him the reforms that were sought for had an intelligent advocate of sterling ability. Firm and resolute in his convictions, always ready to uphold his principles whatever the risks, he is yet no lover of rash and violent methods, and by his attendance and saga n counsels at the t urbulent tithe sales of the county, he s Mom failed to influence the indignant anti-tithe crowds to abstain from extreme measures and te induce them to make their protests as men and Christians. (course he is a staunch Liberal and Non- conformist to the backbone, and the many political contests he has fought, and always victoriously, in connection with the public bodies in Carrnarthenshire, testify to the esteem and popularity in which lie has for years been held. He headed the poll in the l.S7^ election of the School Board for the united district of Llangan and Llanboidy, although at the time of the contest he was away from home and in 18r9 he was returned a member of the Carmarthenshire County Council. Despite the most stubborn opposition on the part of the Conservatives and some Dissentient Liberals, who urged the people to show the rev. gentleman "lie was not the lord of the place," Mr Thomas, without convassing for a single vote, was in December, 1894, elected a member of the District Council. He is an ardent educationist, and no man has worked more zealously to perfect and to popularise the educational machinery of the county, while as a temperance orator his services are always in demand. Mr Thomas is also a musician of considerable- attainments, and many years ago devoted much time and labour to the improvement of congregational singing in the surrounding churches. As a frequent contributor to the Welsh and English Press, his name is familiar throughout the Principality. Forty years or incessant and indefatigable toil have told even upon his strong constitution, and a few months ago the rev. gentleman was overtaken by a serious illness. His recovery we hope is now complete, and we heartily re-echo the many wishes already expressed that many years of good health and vigour are yet before him to serve his country and his God. We understand that a similar presentation to that which he has already received at the Tabernacle, will he made him by the members of the church at Bethel on the Otli of May.
