The lecture delivered by the Rev R R Williams, M.A., on "A Journey through Rome," proved to be very interesting to the good number who had assembled to bear it last Friday evening, and the views were capital. The lecturer, it is needless to add, treated the subject in a pleasant and instructive manner. ~.The time-honoured Plygain was iw 6 Parish Church on Christmas morning, but it was hardly up to the standard of previous years, the carol singers being conspicuous by their absence, and the attendance was much below the average. The singing of the church choir was. I nowever, very good, and this compensated to a great extent for the absence of carol singing, which is the feature of the meeting. BETHEL IMPROVEMENT SOCIETY.-At the meet- ing of this society held on Monday evening, a very interesting address was delivered by Mr J Maethlon James, on Notable events in the district during the last 40 years."
