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.
