SOUTH WALES NOTlflS. [BY COSMOS.] COWBRIDGE RACES. SOCIETY anrl sport were the characteristics of Cowbridge races yesterday. The animals which contested the different events may no have been of much calibre from a racirg point of view, but they were nearly all old friends of the covert side, and were ridden V men who arc always to the front with the .oeal Fcks. The charm of these hunt gatherings is in the associations. One meets those companions who have revelled with you in the saddle during the past season, and there is a great deal more interest in a race when all the participants, equine and human, are known to you than when they merely represent a name. There was a good field for most of the events, and it was a pretty sight to see the gay colours gallop up the picturesque grass valley below Penlline. MrR.T.Bassett,M.F.H.,exercised hospitality in a lavish manner. He had a tent, and apparently an invitation for every- one he encountered. For a wonder the weather was delightful. As a general rule it always rains at Cowbridge, and the accommodation is primitive. But the meet- ing is a sporting little affair, and to alter it would be to spoil it. To be saved from the ordeal of the ordinary steeplechase meeting is indeed a blessing. THE RESIGNATIOS OF THE GL.UIOKG AKSRIKK SECRETARY. EVERYONE who takes an interest in cricket Will regret to learn that Mr W. L. Yorath has carried out his intention of resigning the secretaryship of the Glamorganshire County Cricket Club. He has been in office since its inception, and it is owing to his untiring energy and carefulness that the accounts have always exhibited a balance to the good-a rather hard feat when the Smallness of the income is considered. Ho is a terrible loss to the club, and it will be exceedingly difficult to find a gentleman ho can adequately iill his place. At present his successor is not forthcoming, and the matter remains in abeyance. Mr Yorath has left everything in such perfect order that there will be little Or nothing to do for more than a month, d in the meantime what few duties there are will be undertaken by a member of the Committee. Mr Yorath has steered the club through its most anxious period. The 4rst few years are invariably the most critical. In the case of Glamorganshire this >as increased by the lamentable state into )hich cricket had fallen in the Principality. There is now a decided revival, and much of this must be attributed to the secretary of the Glamorganshire Club. By his designation it sustains a severe blow, but Jet a blow which has been lightened by the cellent position which it" has attained trough his indefatigable exertions. RHONDDA POSTAL ARRANGEMENTS. HAVE received the following reply to '"X.Y.Z.'s" communication Drar Cosmos, Your correspondent chareres with making misleading statements concem- the postal arrangements of this neighbour- ed. -H0 says that there is no sub-district of Ton-y-Pandy named Pandy. He is correct so far as the postal name goes, for I ?t>ou1d have stated that this sub-district ^called Coed-y-Meibi.on by the postal authori- ty yet the people here call it Pandv.

It reached Pontypridd and Uinas on the fame date, and Lhvvnypia and here o the 21st. Why should letters for this ne:"h- bOla,boodbf-,stol)pedat those places I should "ite'to know. As a matter of fact, I have had Hers with Penygiaig stamp on them. The kttera were not local. They may have been in- efficiently addressed.—I am, &e., A. B. C The envelope which A. B. C. sends hardly brs out his contention. It is addressed "!>¡tndy, Rhondda, and has been to Dinas "lid Pontypridd, and then to Dinas again, RUtl finally to Llwynypia. It has the last •^Ord written in red ink, as if the locality of P'ndy was doubtful.
