THE SOBANTOH TRIBUNE- SATURDAY MORNINGr, JUNE 12, 1897.
At the historic) town of Drccon, In
South "Wales, ono of the greatest choral
competitions of tho decaclo came off re
cently. Some of the most farrfous
choirs of Gwnlla participated In tho
contest. The names of the noted choirs
are Included In the adjudication of
Joseph Bennett.of the Royal Academy
of Music, London. Tho Bullth choir,
which won at the Llandudno national
eisteddfod last year, won In this con
test, which now places tho famous
choir at the head of the choirs now In
active practice In Old Owalla,
The Newport choir at a recent con
test defeated Merthyr, which was hith
erto looked upon as the most Invulner
able, and Bullth, In two successive con
tests closely following each other, de
feated both Merthyr and Newport,
which, by the way, with the exception
of Cardiff, are tho two largest cities In
"Wales, while nullth Is only a very
email rural village In Breconshlre.
The adjudication will, no doubt,
be of great interest to the Ury
thonlan of our city and vicinity. Tho
choirs sang In the following order; (1)
Trccastlo United choir (conductor, Mr.
Davies); (2) Newport (Mon.) Temper
ance Choral society (conductor,' Mr. G.
II. Edmunds); (3) Bullth Choral Society
(conductor, Mr. A. I Morgan); (4)
Morrlston Glee party (conductor, Mr.
Pcnfro Rowlands); (6) Brecon Philhar
monic society (conductor, Mr. P. T.
Joseph Bennett, who delivered the
adjudication, said his colleagues and !
lie were In perfect accord In stating
that tho Blnglng had been far above
that ordinarily heard. Dealing minute
ly with tho contest.he said Trecastle
choir had exhibited defects In both
pieces, their Intonation being faulty In
placet), and now and again there was
a hesltency about their reading. It had
been" agreed to flx the maximum at 20
marks in each piece, and Trecastle
had been given 14 In each. Morrlston's
rendering of the first piece was very
fine Indeed, though a little light and
shade would Improve It.
Eighteen marks were awarded them i
for the first piece, but they lost all
chance of success by losing tune In the
second, so that they only secured 12
marks for that. So magnlfldently did
Brecon sing their first piece that It was
decided to give them the full marks.
He had heard the best choirs In this
country, Germany. Franco and Itnlv.
and was surprised to find that from
such a small town a choir could be
drawn; and he said emphatically that
It was as good as, If not better than,
any he had heard. Brecon, however,
failed somewhat with the difficult
piece of Bach's, there being a little
raggedness, and In one place a faulty
attack. Of Newport's singing, his notes

ity, and well balanced power on the

lng excellent, and It was music which
demanded very great percupthu quul
Hles and no less executive skill. They
had gained 19 marks In the first and 17
in the second piece. The Bullth choir
made a poor attack In returning to the
first subject In the first piece. That
was their only blot in the performance,
and if that "pretty part-song by their
townsman were an easy effort, he
would say that it promised that Hadley
"Watkins would reflect Infinite credit
upon Brecon. The second piece as sung
by Bullth was a splendid performance,
one which he should certainly remem
ber, whether the rest of the auditors
did or not. They had Interpreted the
music of Sebastian Bach who had left
his work unmarked, leaving interpre
tation to his performers as- he and his
fcllow-adjudlontor would have read It,
and, as he believed, the great Bach
himself would have had it performed.
Bullth had been allotted SO marks out
of the total of 40, and had gained the
full award for their second piece. This
decision wan received with cheers. The
order of merit Is Bullth, 39 marks;
Newport, 36, Brecon, 3C; Morrlston, 30;
B. F. Lewis, ono or the associate editors
of Y Drych, who was recently stricken
with a paralytic stroke, died on Thursday
of last week. He was one of the best
known Welihmei in tho country, and
was a gentleman of nmlablo Christian
traits, and although old In the faith
and in years, he was nevertheless le
markably liberal in his Christian views.
He woull havo been a much stronger
Welsh writer had he followed it up con
tinually from tho time ho had mastered
it, but opportunities on the English preij
being more favorable, he relinquished the
pen of his younger years, and not until
a fflw years ago, when he became asso
ciate odltor of Y Drych, did he take It up
ngain. He was a Welshman to the core,
and loved Intensely the country of his
birth and boyhood and her beautiful old
language. Mr. Lewis did some excellent
work on tho Utlco. Herald for many
years, and was the foreman of its me
chanical department when Hon, Ellis H,
Roberts was Its editor and proprietor. He
was a prominent member of tho grand
lodge of Ivorltcs, and at one time was ono
of the leading members of the Interna
tional TyjKJsraphlcal union of America
Let us remind those singers of the West
Side who Intend competing for tho chief
prizes at the Allentown eisteddfod, that
they will meet In that competition men
and women of refinement and splendid
musical accomplishments. Tho Allen
town German society of singers Is an old
organization of accomplished singers,
with a professional gentleman of culture
and experience at the head. They have
given a series of concerts for many years
every winter of the great masters' works,
and they have demonstrated on these oc
casions ability of a very superior order,
and no "scrap" choir can defeat them.
Wo hopo the West Side singers will con
sider the matter very seriously. With the
best material and an Intelligent and ca
pable leader, the prize can bo won, and not
otherwise. Scranton singers cannot very
well afford to lose and bo defeated by a
choir not known to tho world of compe
tition. We protest against a "scrap
choir," as some- wish to call It, Go 10
Allentown well prepared and win.
It does our heart good when we hear so
many young men In and around Scranton
eprk the good old mother tongue with
such correctness and fluency, and what
Is more surprising Is, that the most of
them are born In this country and tholr
parents beforo them, while the majority
of those of recent Importation are ut
terly upable to sreak and read the lan
guage of their country. Wu have a dozen
young men on tho West Side, with little
practice, who would soon become mas
tnra In tho magnificent accomplishment
of transcribing thoughts in tho graceful
and expressive language of tho old Welsh
warriors oi the past.

things in tho course of his speech on the
Welsh land bill the other day. Bald the

That Birmingham journal which pub

It la tho opinion of tho Medical Press
that tho enterprise displayed by the au

They may bo sung to cither English or

Is the vocabulary of Welsh surnames
over likely to be augmented? Certain it
Is that the difficulties and Inconveniences
attending the present limited one are be
ing more and more recognized. It Ii said
that the conductor of a recent eisteddfod
was placed In a great predicament aris
ing from the sameness In surnames. A
telegram was placed In his hands ad
dressed to "Mr. John Jones, Bettws Eis
teddfod, Bottswfawr." Tho conductor
courageously advanced to the vast audi
ence, and in loud tones demanded If the
said John Jones was present when to his
utter bewilderment some 7,000 persons rose
from their seats to claim the message!
That ho collapsed goes without saying
The following remarkable story has for
Itself the recommendation of being true.
It Is tho practice of a Carmarthenshlrn
postman to deposit tho letters belonging
to a certain farmhouse In an Improvised
letter box near the roadside. One morning
after ho had dropped In the letters he no
ticed to his utter amazemont that they
were promptly thrown out. He trembling
ly replaced them, but they were ejected
for the second time with the same d's
patch Bent on solving tho mystery, he
proceeded to the adjacent farmstead and
obtained tho key of the box. On openng

A carol by tho great Kben Fardd Is

may be said of Eben Fardd, as of every

While the Welsh Baptlr ts and the Wel-di

Methodists havo their "General Assemb
ly" to represent them as a concrete whole,
the Welsh Weslejans are still divided Into
two artificial sections, north and south,
ond have no constituted body to speak
or to act in the name of the Welsh
churches as a whole. It Is to remedy this
defect and remove tho resultant disad
vantages that tho Rev. Hugh Price
Hughes and others are agitating In the
conferenco for the formation of a pro
vincial Bynod for the whole of Wales.
The South Wales "district" at their Car
diff meetings this week adopted without
a dissentient volco a resolution In favor
of that cause, and, though there has bcn
manifested a llttlo opposition In North
Wales atrong some of the ministers, It la
now clear that when tho next conference
Is held the opinion of Wales will go solid
ly In favor of the new proposal. It Is felt
by tho promoters that "such an assembly
as Is now suggested would create among
our Welsh churches a tense of unity
which cannot exist while Welsh Method
Ism is split Into two unequal unrelated
fragments. It would glvo now life, new
hope, new opportunity to our people In
Wales at a time when all other churches,
Including even the Church of Rome, real
lze that a variety of circumstances havo
combined to make thls'the hour when a
wise, well directed and national appeal to
tho Welsh race Is moro likely than at any
previous period In modern history to
evoke a hearty and national response,"
Mr. T, Glyndwr Richards, tho well
known male volco party conductor, ex

going to be verified, for wo hear that the
preparations for this yoar'a festival are

The trouble with
us nowadays is, that
we do not lead nat
ural lives. The fern
nine portion of our
society is especially
culpable in this way.
It is really a wonder
that women are as
healthy as they arc.
Very few women get
any outdoor exer
cise. Very many get
no exercise at all.
Modes of dressing
interfere with the
action and with the
circulation of the
blood. All the hy
gienic laws are bro
ken. It is little won
der that nine women
in ten are troubled
with some derangement or irregularity in
the action of the organs distinctly feminine.
Neglect and wrong living will show them
selves first in the most delicate organs of
the whole body. With such weakness and
sickness so prevalent, it is to be expected
that the bearing of children would be
fraught with dread and danger. It should
not be so, of course. Nature never meant
it to be so. The performance of the high
est function of which a woman is capable
should not be accompanied by pain. If
perfectly natural living were the rule, it
would not be so. As lives arc lived, some
thing else must be done. A remedy must
be found. For over thirty year). Dr. Pierce
has been chief consulting phyiician to the
Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute, of
Buffalo, N. Y. During that time he has
treated thousands of women. He has
found in his "Favorite Prescription" a
never-failing specific for female complaints.
It strengthens the whole body and when
taken during gestation, shortens the period
of labor and makes childbirth well-nigh
painless. It also promotes an abundant
secretion of nourishment for the child.
