Two concerts were given at the Judge's Hall, Tonypandy, on Thursday last by the National Quartet Party (winners at London National Eisteddfod, 1909). The first concert was held in the afternoon at 3.30, and the attendance proved that, if a little more catering in the way of after- noon entertainments were done whereby the nightmen could have an opportunity of hearing first-class performances, it would be well patronised.

The party was composed of the following artistes: —Soprano, Madame Gunter-Williams, Abertillery; contralto, Miss Maud Bradbury, Cardiff; tenor, Mr. Harry Lewis, Nelson; bass, Mr. Dd.

The following ambulance corps marched from Porth to be present at the service: Ynyshir, Coedcae, and the Porth Company of the Church Lads' Brigade. The procession was accompanied by the Cymmer Colliery Band. The service was crowded, and the preacher, the Rev. D. J. Thomas (curate- in-charge), delivered an inspiring address. The Cymmer Band accompanied the musical portion of the service and also gave a selection. Mr. Morgan John (Tonyrefail) also contributed to the musical portion by a solo. The collection was on behalf of that needy institution, the Porth Cottage Hospital. A very enthusiastic meeting under the auspices of the Tonyrefail Ratepayers' Association was held at the Institute on Tuesday evening, when Councillor James Dicks was called upon to give an account of his stewardship for the past three years in the work of the District Coun- cil. In his address, Councillor Dicks reviewed the service he had rendered during his term of office. Councillor Dicks, in reply to a questioner, stated that with regard to the condition of Station Road and Pritchard Street, that he had been hammering at the Council to effect some remedy in the condition of these roads. Although he had brought the matter forward on many occasions, he regretted that no remedy had yet been obtained, but he hoped in the near future that something would be done to abate the present nuisance. He also explained the difficulty met with in the matter of the sewer drains in Pretoria Road, which was no fault of the Council's, but the fault lay with the Building Club's archi- tect, who had laid the drains lower than the Council's level. He next referred to the Isolation Hospital, which, though an expensive one, was a most necessary one.

-----------To Educate the…
To Educate the Voter. Progressive League formed at Williamstown. An enthusiastic meeting was held at the Welsh Wesleyan Chapel, Williams- town, on Tuesday last for the purpose of forming a Progressive League. Mr. M.. L. Thomas, Penygraig, presided. The Chairman explained that the in- auguration of the League in South Gla- morgan was needed, in order to further progressive ideas arcnong the uneducated inhabitants, many of whom had been per- suaded to vote Conservative on account of their small knowledge of politics. It was unanimously decided that a branch of the Progressive League be formed in No. 7 Ward, and that edu- cating literature should be provided for the benefit of the inhabitants, who would then be able to form their own ideas on politics. The following officers were elected: -President, Rev. T. Bucking- ham chairman, Mr. M. L. Thomas; vice- chairman, Mr. J. D. Thomas; secretary, Mr. R. Pierce; treasurer, Mr. Edgar Morgan. n It was decided to invite all the local ministers as vice-presidents, and a strong committe.e was also elected.
mm* "HM W TO SUFFERERS FROM 7 Skin & Blood Diseases j For cleansing the blood of all impurities, from whatever cause arising, there is no other medicine just as good as Clarke's Blood Mixture—that's why in so many cases of Eczema, Scrofula, Scurvy, Bad Legs, Abscesses, Ulcers, Tumours, Boils, Pimples, Blotches, Sores and Eruptions, Piles, Glandular Swellings, Blood Poison, Rheuma- tism, Gout, &c., it has effected truly remarkable cures where all other treatments have failed. Clarke's Blood Mixture has over 45 years' reputation, and the proprietors solicit all sufferers to give it a trial to test its value. The Editor of the FAMILY DOCTOR writes: co We have seen hosts of letters bearing testimony to the truly wonderful cures effected by Clarke's Blood Mixture.

He mentioned with regard to the con- tinuation of Mill Road to Thomaetown, difficulties had arisen, but had been dealt with. He also mentioned that he had brought before the Council a motion making it compulsory that every new house should contain a bath, which was essential to every miner. But he could not report any substantial progress in this matter, owing to a reply being re- ceived by the Council from the Local Government Board saying that there was no Statute under which this could be made compulsory but he said he would still vote against any plans which did not contain this provision. ith regard to the water supply of the district, he said the present supply was fully suffi- cient for an additional 25 per cent, of the present population; but he stated that this supply may or may not be affected by subsidences due to the new works which are opening up in the dis- trict. Referring to the lighting of streets, he estimated that. an all-night light would mean an addition of 2d. to the present rates. He also referred to the satisfactory condition of the Cottage Homes at Llwynypia and the Orphans Home at 1.1 an twit Vardre. With regard to the footpaths, he said provision had been made in this half-year's estimate so that Collenna Road, Gilfach Road and Pretoria Road would receive attention. Asked as to whether the experiment on the road for preventing dust in High Street was a success, he replied in the negative, and on being further ques- tioned as to the cost of the experiment, he could give no reply. Questioned as to the advantage of retaining Mr. Gomer S. Morgan's services as consulting engi- neer. r.e thought the terms at which the Council had secured his services were both economical and advantageous. A vote of thanks to Councillor Dicks and the chair- man (Mr. Henry Rowlands) concluded the meeting. Pentre. A very enjoyable social was held at the Central Hotel, Pentre, on Friday evening. In response to the invitation of Mr. R. Jones, assistant superintendent of the Rhondda branch of local agents for the Prudential Assurance jCbmpany, there was a good attendance. After an excellent repast (supplied by Mr. Collier), there was a miscellaneous meeting, over which the superintendent, Mr. Joseph Williams, presided. A social, under the auspices of the Pentre Branch of the National Amal- gamated Union of Shop Assistants, Ware- housemen and Clerks, was held at the Central Hotel on Thursday evening. The initial portion of the evening was spent over a splendid tea, and from 8 o'clock until about 11 o'clock there were games and musical items, which gave every satisfaction. The secretary (Mr. Tudor Williams) and chairman (Mr. J. J. Taylor) had prepared a good programme for the evening. A successful smoking concert arranged in connection with the Pentre Army Ser- vice Corps was held at the Drill Hall last Thursday evening. Major Dyke presided, supported by Lieutenants Jenkins and Rees. The programme was opened by an excellent selection by the Cwmparc Silver Band, under the baton of Mr. Smith, and several songs were contri- buted during the evening by Messrs. W. Evans, Percy Burge, Sam Thompson and David Davies, the duties of accompanist being well discharged by Mr. J. Evans, Ystrad. The arrangements were a credit to the organiser, Sergt.-Major Newbury. Porth. The first lecture arranged by Mr. Hodgson, B.Sc., for students of Evening Classes in Porth district was given at the Porth Higher Elementary School on Thursdav evening by Mr. Hawkins, B.Sc., of the P.T. Centre. His subject was Comets and Hallev's Comet." The chair was occupied by Mr. Berry. The subject was explained by Mr. Hawkins in a very lucid manner, showing the differ- ence between various types of celestial bodies, as well as giving a rough idea of their distances. The lantern slides ex- hibited assisted materially in the suc- cess of the lecture, many of these having been specially prepared by the lecturer. Views of famous comets in the past proved interesting. Hearty votes of thinks to the chairman and lecturer were accorded at the close. Ynyshir. With deep regret we chronicle the death of Mrs. Ann Scard, the wife of Mr. Fred Scard, which took place on Monday evening, the 7th inst., at her residence, 15. Graig Road? Ynyshir.
