The room was packed to the doors by a most appreciative audi- enae, the artistes being encored to the echo, a reception which they well deserved. Those who contributed to the programme were Miss Sallie Roberts, Mias Maud Llioyd Jones, Miss Blanche Bowen (elocutionist), of Ruabon, Mr. Sydney i Watkin, and Mr. George Jackson, Llangollen, with Mr. Frank Pullein, Wrexham, as a<-com- > panist. Outstanding features of the entertain- j ment were a couple of quartets "Home all ye Lads and Lasses" and "The Country Dance." i Miss Bowen's recitation of "The Oow.urd, and Miss Jones's song, "Ah, Qui." The men had not enjoyed so excellent a concert at this Hut for a longtlme. ¡,. A number of interesting lectures ta'ø been arranged. to take place at the Y.M.C.A.

At No. 1 Hut last week, Mr Llew j Williams's lantern lecture "With Fire -ind Sword in Asia was most instructive, fascinating, j and "frightful." The lecture was listened to with rapt attention by a crowded audience.

HUNTING. I SIR W. W. WYNN'S HOUNDS. I Cubbing begun with these hounds on Thurs- j day, at the Hop Yard, Eyton, on the Bryn-y- pys estate, when there were out Lady Palmer, Mr. Frank Cotton, Mr. Hanmer Jones, Mr. Dyke Dennis,Masters Philip and Simon Yorke, Master FitzHugh, Master Lancelot Charles- ton, Master Roger Sheffield, Mr. Geo. Thel- j well, Messrs. G. and Gordon Goswell, Mr. Harvey Davies, etc. Scent was practically nil, the result being that the youngsters had to return to the kennels without a kill to their credit. Morgan threw off in the Hop Yard, and this being blank the Plas Fron withy bed was visited, which also was untenanted. There were a brace of cubs in Randle's Gorse, but they proved too wary for the hounds. At Pickhill Hall, on Saturday, hounds killed their first cub just within the new Plantation, whilst later on Peter's Dingls afforded them their second victim. Sutton Green provided a brace of veterans, who soon made themselves scarce.
The Cambrian Archaeological Association held its annual meeting at Shrewsbury last week. The reports showed that the Associa- tion had suffered considerably less than might j have been expected. from effects of the war. The diminution in membership had not been large, and the" Archaeologia Cambrensis," the Association's journal, had maintained the high standard of former years.

A SCANDAL OF THE WAR I I
A SCANDAL OF THE WAR I I SPIRITED PROTEST BY WREXHAM I GUARDIANS. What was described by the Chairman, Dr. Edwards Jones, as one of the scandals of the war, was discussed at length at the meeting on Thursday, of Wrexham Board of Guar- dians. It related to the pauperisation of sol- diers, and the temper of the Guardians as re- vealed by the discussion, indicates the feeling I that exists amongst all classes as to the pro- per after-care and treatment of those who have served the country in the present war. The matter arose on the reading of a letter from the Plymouth Board of Guardians, who stated that since the outbreak of war a num- ber of lunatic soldiers and sailors have been transferred to the borough asylum and made chargeable to the poor rates under the provi- sions of the Army Annual Act. The Guar- dians were of opinion that it was highly impro- bable that more than a small proportion of the men in question would have become lunatics had it hot been for the stress and strain of the war, and in the circumstances they considered that their maintenance should be a national and not a local charge. They also considered it very undesirable that men whose mental faculties had become deranged while serving their country should be classified as pauper lunatics, and were therefore urging the Asso- ciation of Poor Law Unions of England and Wales to take whatever action they might deem advisable, either by deputation or repre- sentations in Parliament with the object of bringing about an alteration in the law on the subj ect. The Clerk said six soldiers had been sent to Denbigh Asylum as lunatics during the past few months. L The Chairman said he thought this was one of the biggest scandals of the war. Under the stress of modern warfare, a large number of men had become mentally deranged, some per- manently, and it was a scandal that they should be pauperised on that account, and that the stigma of pauperism should attach to their wives and children. It was a matter on which public opinion should be aroused to such an extent that Parliament would insist upon these men being maintained as they ought to be maintained out of public funds- by the army authorities. These men had lost their reason whilst serving their country, and he moved that they strongly support the Plymouth resolution, and ask the Government to take immediate action, and that where these men had become paupers chargeable to local rates the money should be refunded to the local authorities so as to remove from the men and their families all stain of pauperism. Mr. John Roberts seconded the motion, and asked if the Guardians had started paying for the maintenance of the soldier lunatics sent to Denbigh Asylum. The Chairman—Yes, we have got to. Mr. John Roberts—No; I challenge that. 1 notice in the Press that several Boards of Guardians have declined to pay entirely, and have left it to the Asylum authorities to fight it out and to keep apart entirely from the dirty work of pauperising our soldiers. The Clerk said the Leigh Board of Guar- dians had decided to take action on the linea indicated by Mr. Roberts. The County Coun- cil, however, would take the Board of Guar- dians into court to recover the money. Mr. E. J. Williams—Yes; that's the way. Mr. Cross-i move we do the same. Mr. John Roberts—I believe other Boards of Guardians intend to fight the War Office on the matter. The Chairman said he believed that public agitation on the matter would become stronger, and the more resolutions of this kind they sent to the House of Commons the sooner the law would be altered. The House of Com- mons could pass measures in 48 hours when it was npcessary. Mr. John Roberts-I hope we shall decline to pay for the upkeep of these soldiers. Other Boards of Guardians will not. The Chairman—Let them do the fighting. Mr. John Roberts—But we pauperise our men. Mr. E. J. Williafiis said he personally liked the idea of refusing payment. If they were to fight the County Council, yet them do so; for eventually they would have the country with them on the matter. He would like the Wrex- have Board of Guardians to be in the fore- front of the fight. Mr. T. B. Taylor said he did not think it was quite loyal to condemn the Government so readily. The Government never intended to pauperise any of the soldiers, but the cir- cumstancas were such that the Government had not had an opportunity of remedying it. He believed the Government would remedy the matter. He hoped he would never see the pauper soldier again. He had seen too much of him. He remembered the Crimean war, and he had seen the men dying in that workhouse. He hoped they would never see ( that again. ¡. Ultimately, it was decided to adopt the Plymouth resolution, and to write to the Poor Law Association of England and Wales asking them to take immediate action on the matter.

CAPEL AC EGLWYS. 1 Y mae y Parch. G. Davys Jones, curad Tre- ffynnon, ac hyd y Pasg diweddaf prifathraw Ysgol Ystrad Meurig, wedi cael ei benodi yn gaplan tymhorol gyda'r milwyr. Y mae y Parch. J. T. Job, Carneddi, Bethesda, wedi derbyn galwad i fugeilio eglwys Methodistiaid Calfinaid Abergwaen, De Cymru. Estynodd eglwys y Methodistiaid Moss Side, Manceinion, wahoddiad i'r Parch. R. W. Jones, M.A., Gerlan, Bethesda (a chyn-, athraw Cymraeg yn Ysgol Sir Caernarfon) i ymgymeryd a bugeiliaeth yr eglwys,ond deallir fod Mr. Jones wedi gwrthod yr alwad. i amryw swyddi yn nosbarth Gogledd Cymru. Y mae Prifysgol St. Andrews, Ysgotland, yn cynig gan' punt am draethawd ar weddi. Iihaid i'r traethodau ddelio ag ystyr, gwir- ionedd, a gallu gweddi; ei He a'i gwerth i'r person unigol, i'r eglwys, ac i'r wladwriaeth; yn amgylchiadau. bywyd bob dydd,mewn gwell- had iechyd a chlefyd, inewn adegau o gyni ac enbydrwydd cenhedlaethol, ac yn ei pher- thynas a delfrydau cenedlaethol a chynydd y byd. Y mae hyd y traethawd i fod o 4,000 i 6,000 o eiriau. Y mae y gystadleuaeth yn ¡ agored i'r byd, a gellir ysgrifenu y traethodau mewn unrhvw iaith. Rhaid i'r traethodau ddyfod i law yr ysgrifenydd, Prifysgol St. Andrews, Ysgotland, erbyn Mehefin laf, 1917. Y mae'r cwestiwn dyrus o'r priodoldeb o wneyd diwinyddiaeth yn rhan o gwrs addysg Prifysgol Cymru yn barod yn magu yspryd ymryson yn y wasg enwadol Cymreig. Saif Y Tyst yn gadarn yn erbyn y symudiad, fel y gellir gweled o'r dyfyniad caT-ilyiiol: O'n safbwynt ni fel eiyad Annibynol, mae gwrth- wynebiadau arbennig i'r ymgais hon i roi diwinyddiaeth drosodd i'r colegau cencdl- aethol. Saif dau o'n colegau y tuallan i eldin- asoedd urddasol y Brifysgol. Ceir yn A ber- honddu adeilad sydd yn addurn i'r enwacl ac ] yn gofgolofn i weithgarweh y tadau. Yng j Nghaerfyrddin ceir sefydliad hynaf addysg | uwchraddol Cymru. Nid all y ddau goleg hyn fanteisio ar yr ad-drefniant a gynhygir. j Hefyd, pa sicrwydd sydd y cai ymgeiswyr o | wahanol enwadau vr un cyfle a'i gilydd am gadeiriau? Egyr v cynnyg hwn v ddorau i ffrydlif o lafa enwadol i ddifwyno tiroedd crefydd yng Nghymru unwaith eto. Mawr hyderwn yr atelir ef mewn pryd. Nid ar- gyfwng rhyfel yw'r amser i ddadymchwelyd y temlau heirdd a godwyd gan y tadau, y rhai a | gadarnhawyd ac a addurnwyd gan sefydlwyr addysg ddiwinyddol y Brifysgol. Nid hon yw'r adeg i daflu'r colegau diwinyddol i hel- bul a thrybini wedi eu llafur caled i gydym- ffurfio a gofynion y Brifysgol yn ystod yr ugain | mlynedd diweddaf. Credwn na fyn yr eglwysi mo'r cyfnewidiad. Da gennym na ddaeth yr un o'n colegau allan i'w bleidio, a bod eisoes amryw gyfundebau wedi pasio penderfyniadau cryf yn ei erbyn." Cyfeiria y Llan at y symudiad, ac nid anfuddiol fydd deall saf- bwynt wasg yr Eglwys Sefydiedig ar y mater, fe,. y dengys y detholiad canlynol:—" Ym- ddengys oddiwrth adroddiadau Cvmdeithasfa- oedd y Methodistiaid Calfinaidd yn Ne a Gog- ledd Cymru fod sefyllfa ariannol colegau diwinyddol Bala ac Aberystwyth, perthynol i'r cyfundeb hwnnw, yn arddangos colledion trymion. Mae yn debvgol fod y ffaith hon yn cyfrif am yr awydd a arddangosir gan y Methodistiaid Cymreig i sefydlu cvmdeithas ddiwinyddol ynglyn a Phrifysgol Cymru, yr hyn a ryddhaai y cyfundeb i raddau mawr o'r draul a fodola yn awr yn hyfforddiad eu gwein- idogion yn eu colegau enwadol. Arddengys hyn yn amlwg fod y cwestiwn o egwyddor— am yr hyn v clywid yn ystod vmgyrch y Dad- gysylltwyr i vsbeilio yr Eglwys yng Nghymru. ac yn ystod y gwrthryfel addysgol a ddilvnodd fabwysiad iriesur Mr. Balfour yn 1902—yn awr ) wedi diflannu, ac wedi ei ddisodlu gan vstyr- iaethau o gyfaddasrwydd a rhyddhad ariannol. Hyd yma, nid yw yr Annibynwyr Cymreig na'r Bedvddwyr Cymreig wedi penclerfynu csyflwyno cynhvgion ar hyn i'r Ddirprwvaeth Frenhinol ar addysg y Brifysgol yng Nghvmru, sydd yn eistedd ar hyn o bryd. ond gallwn yn hawdd gredu y bvdd iddynt. fel y Methodistiaid, fvned i'r un cvfeiriad o angysondeb a hunan-amddi- ffyniad." j
THE CHURCHES. I THE LATE REV. J. M. HUMPHREYS. I The funeral of the Rev. J. M. Humphreys, Welsh Calvinisiic Methodist minister of Han- ley, whose sudden demise was announced in our last issue, took place at Zion Calvinistic Meth- odist Church, 'Oswestry, on Wednesday, a large number of friends from Llanwddyn, where the deceased was formerly pastor, and from other parts of Montgomeryshire, attending. A service at the house at Hanley was conducted by the Rev. R. OWJII, Wesleyan minister, and the Rev. ti. Williams, Congregational minister, both of Hanley. The body was brought by train to Oswestry, and was met at the station by a num- ber of friends. The service in Zion Church was conducted by the pastor, the Rev. H. E. Grif- fith, the Rev. O. R. Owen. Pentrefelin, T. Aston, Shrewsbury, E. Griffiths, Mei'fod, and R. Owen, Hanley, ako taking part. Mrs. Ben Roberts presided at the organ, and the hymns sung were '1 Mor ddedwydd yw y rhai trewy ffydd and 0 anfeidrol ryn y cariad." At the graveside, the committal service was taken by the Rev. H. E. Griffith, while the Rev. O. T. Davies offered prayer, the hymn Bydd mvrdd o ryfeddoda,i being sung at the close. Other ministers present were the Rev. J. Wil- liams, Penybontfawr, G. A. Edwards, Oswestry, and R. P. Griffith, Cefn Canol. DEVIL'S OWN AND GOD'S OWN." I Speaking at the Labour Congress last week, II Mr. Ben TilLett moved a resolution regretting the exemption of members of the clerical pro- fession from military service. He said he did not wish to make any attack on the clergy. He or had seen something of their good work at the j front. But he protested against the anomaly of their exemption as a profession. There were J 20.000 able-bodied parsons and clerics in this country. The majority of them were at the beck and call of the conscriptionists from the beginning of the war. But when conscription came near they went through the back doors of Parliament to get exemption. Two hundred theological students of Bangor thought it would be far better to be a live parson than a dead soldier. They were not playing the game. The lawyers had created a Devil's Own." It would be far more to the credit of the clerical profession if they would create a God's Own." Why should these men who were so fond of talking about Heaven be so afraid to go through its gates. He protested against the action of these cowardly creatures sneaking out of their obligations." Several subsequent speakers re- sented Mr. Tillett's allusions, Mr. J. Sexton, Liverpool, saying there was not a university or training college which had not contributed gen- I erously of its men to the army. But the :CEO- f lution was carried by 1,379,000 votes to 1,200,000. j
