Last Sunday, anniversary preaching meetings were held at Salem (W.B.) Qhapel, when the Rev. T. Williams (Twrfab), Aberdare, officiated. Contrary to the usual custom, services were not held on the Monday, owing to the Bap- tist Gymanfa being held at Noddfa, Tre- orchy, Large congregations attended on Sunday and the preaching was much enjoyed. The free lecture arranged by the Insti- tute Committee for last Monday evening in the Park Hall duly took place, but coinciding with the visit of the Right Hon. Lloyd George to Treorchy, the attendance unfortunately was very dis- appointing, there being hardly a hun- dred persons present. The lecturer was Mr. Dennis Hird, M.A., late principal of Ruskin College, Oxford, and he had a most interesting subject, Ruskin the Seer." He gave a, most interesting biography of the famous prose writer and and emphasised the special circumstances and proclivities of charac- ter which led to his epoch-making adop- tion of the cause of Socialism. An interesting ceremony took place at the Park and Dare Workmen's Institute on Friday evening last, the Committee holding a special meeting to do honour to Mr. John Evans, who as hon. treasurer has rendered invaluable services to the Institute for a period extending over thirteen years. Mr. Tom Herbert, in the chair, remarked that it behoved them, to recognise the admirable manner in which Mr. Evans had performed his office, and they were assembled to ask his accept- ance of a token of their appreciation. This took the form of a gold watch, which was formally handed over by Mr. Evan Middleton, M.E., to the accompaniment of an excellent speech. He pointed out that this was not in the nature of a present, but the reward for duty un- assumingly and conscientiously, done. Messrs. Howell Price, Wm. Jones, J. Davies and Gwilym Jones also spoke, Mr. Evans suitably responding. Mr. Cadivor Thomas late of Park Schools, and now serving the L.C.C., last week won a handsome money prize in "Tit-Bits." We heard a perfect pun last week, which, strangely enough, emanated from the pulpit. Possibly it was not original, but hoping to bequeath a ripple of laugh- ter to a grateful posterity, we hasten to chronicle it. The rev. gentleman was emphasising the importance of physical fitness in relation to a sunshiny tempera- ment, and supplied the following answer to the oft-asked question, "Is life worth living?" "It depends on the liver"! EThi 's example of the punster's art ap- peared in Punch many years ago.- Ed., R.L."] Bethel (E.B.) Chapel held its annual tea party on Thursday last, which is synonymous with saying it was a com- plete success, as the fair sisters of that congregation have a traditional aptitude for selling tickets. The tables were taste- fully decorated for the occasion, and, happily, the Clerk of the Weather' was for once in a smiling mood. All Skin diseases can be cured by using Dr. Douglas' Ointment, 1s.

Accident.—On Monday, the 11th inst., Mr. Howell Cuthbertson held an inquest on the body of John Price, of Garn Road, Maesteg, fireman, who was suffocated under a fall which occurred at the Maes- teg Merthyr Colliery. The manager, Mr. Peter Allen, said he was with Price after he'had completed his round. He went with him to an airway, where there had been a fall, to advise him the best way to clear it. He had not left Price a couple of seconds, when he heard another fall. He then went for assistance to clear the fall, and obtained the help of two workmen who were working close at hand. They tried to reach deceased with ,a scraper, and after a short time they could see his body, but another fall came and completely hid his body from sight. The body was eventually recovered about 4.30 on Thursday afternoon. Dr. Kirkby said that there were no bruises on the body externally, but the cause of death was due to suffocation. A verdict was returned accordingly. Death.—On Monday last week, at Llwydarth Road, Maesteg, Harriet Howells, aged 52, housekeeper for Mr. Benjamin John, was found dead in her bedroom. The next-door neighbour went to call her about 7 o'clock that morning. and receiving no reply, called upon Mrs. John, the mother of Benjamin John. They found deceased dead on the floor, partly undressed. She appeared in her usual health the previous night. Death is stated to be due to heart disease. THE GREAT WELSH REMEDY.

The little model lifeboats were once more very much in evidence on Saturday last. All the houses were visited by chil- dren soliciting subscriptions on behalf of the National Lifeboat Institution. Harvest festival services were held at St. David's Church, Ton, on Thursday and Sunday last. The building was artistically (decorated by willing hands with fruits, vegetables, &c.

Stitt Wilson, M.A., the Socialist orator, again visited the district and delivered an address at Siloam, Gelli, on Tuesday, the 12th inst. The many friends and admirers of Mr. T. Davies, Ton, better known as Cenech," will be pleased to learn that after a short period of study at Ponty- pridd, he has been successful in passing an examination which gave him an entrance into Brecon College. Mr. Davies is a clever and most successful poet, having carried off numerous prizes at different eisteddfodau in Wales, his greatest achievement being the winning of the Gwent Eisteddfod chair. Cenech has left for Brecon, where he will pursue his studies for the ministry. Doubtless there is a brilliant career before this self- educated young man. On Sunday last, half-yearly meetings were held in connection with Hebron (W.B.). The special preachers for the occasion were the Revs. Richard Owen, Pembrey, and T. Morgans, Llanelly.

The chairman and vice-chairman respectively are Messrs. D. Jones and W. Parry. Mr. Jack Parker is secretary, whilst Mr. Geo. Bailey is treasurer. The. Treherbert Northern Union Foot- ball Grounds were partly flooded after the storm on Friday, and for this reason the match which was to be played against Salford on Saturday was postponed. The local Athletic Rugby team did well on Saturday by defeating Trebanog on their own ground. It should be noted that, previous to Saturday, Trebanog held a two years' ground record. 12 Bladed Safety Razors. The Ever Ready at 5/ the Gillette at 21/- Local Agent- R. T.

The Fasting Man. Monsieur Beaute, the famous fasting man, still continues to draw large num- bers of interested people to Danter's place of amusement, Dunraven Street, Tonypandy. To-day (Thursday) he com- pleted his thirteenth day. A Leader Pressman witnessed the interview between Beaute and Dr. Burton, one of our local doctors, and the doctor's opinion was satisfactory. Mons. Beaute complained of deriving little sleep during the night until 5 in the morning. Hitherto Beaute has lost 121bs. in weight, dropping from lIst. to lOst. 21bs., and his temperature is below normal. It is only natural that there are many people rather^ sceptical about the 31 days' fast, but a visit to the fasting man in his glass house will dispel all such thoughts.
