Rhifa y cr dros gant o bobl yr eglwys. Gwyddai y rhai sydd yn adwaen Mr. David Rosser am ei allu corawl arweiniol. Pan yr ymaflodd Dafydd yn yr awenau cafodd y cr adgyfodiad cerddorol, ac y mae newydd wedd y canu yn dra boddhaol ir eglwys ar gynnulleidfa {sic}

The hundreds of friends o Mr. David Rosser, formerly of Aberdr and Pont-ty-pridd, will be pleased to know that he has been chosen out of a great number of candidates as the leader of the choir of the Immanual church, on Michigan Road, near 24th Street, Chicago. There are over a hundred church members in the choir. Those who know Mr. David Rosser know of his ability in conducting choirs.. When Dafydd took over the reins the choir had a musical revival and the new style of singing is very satisfactory for the church and the audience.

Mae ysgrifenydd yn y Drych yn dweyd fel hyn: Gallaf ddyweyd yn ddibetrus y gall dynion da wneud bywoliaeth gysurus yn California ond iddynt gadw o ddyled. Anfona amryw i ymofyn am ddeuheudir California. Atebaf y rhai hyn - fel yr ysgrifenais or blaen - fod y tiroedd yn rhatach yng nghanolbarth California, a bod y ffrwythau yn tyfu yn well yno. Yr unig ffrwythau a hawlir genym yn fwy rhagorol ydyw yr oranges ar lemons.
Ond tybia llawer yn awr y gellir tyfu y ffrwythau yn gystal yn y San Joaquin ar Sacramento Valleys ag a ellir yma.

A writer in "Y Drych" says: I can say without hesitation that people can make a comfortable living in California provided they keep out of debt. Many people have wriiten to ask about southern California. I tell them as Ive written before - that the land is cheaper in central California, and that fruit grows better there. The only fruit which we claim are of better quality are oranges and lemons. But now many think that the fruits can be grown just as well in the San Joaquin and Sacramento Valleys as they can here

In St. Marys Chapel, East Boston, the latest Welsh sermon was given. A good audience of Welsh people came together, and Mr. J. Chris Williams gave an effective sermon as usual. Its wonderful to see the Welsh Sunday School still holding its ground in East Boston, under the direction of our brother Mr. Hugh Jones, Cottage Street.

Mae y blaenaf yn un o law-feddygon pwysicaf rhai or hospitals; ar olaf yn enwog gyda rhyfeddodau darganfyddol yr X Rays. Edrycha yn aml trwy ddynion; ond nid yw efe wedi darganfod pechod-fan yr un o honynt.

DaTwo Welsh doctors who are climbing to fame in their work in Chicago are Dr. T. J. Watkins, one of the Watkinss of Steuben, N.Y., and Dr. J. T. Lave, or Levi - cousin of the Rev. Thomas Levi, Aberystwyth. The former is one of the most important surgeons in some of the hospitals; and the latter is famous with the discovering wonders of X Rays. He often looks through people; but he hasnt discoverd the source of sin (a sin-place) in any of them

Bu farw yn Spanish Forks, Utah, y cerddor galluog Mr. William H. Davies, yr hwn a anwyd yn Merthyr Tydfil, Gorph. 4, 1842; ac yr oedd ei angladd yn un anrhydeddus iawn, llawer wedi dyfod o bellder mawr. Yr oedd Mr. Davies yn ddyn gonest, ac yn zelog dros bob peth da. Gwnaeth wasanaeth mawr fel athraw, mewn dysgu corau a seindyrf, a theimlir colled ar ei ol. Pan oedd Apmadoc yma bu y ddau yn cydganu, ac nis gellir gor-brisio ei wasanaeth gyda cherddoriaeth. Ennillodd fuddugoliaeth mewn Eisteddfod fu yma, a bydd ei ddylanwad yn hir ar gantorion. Bu am flwyddyn yn gofnodydd ir Young Mens Co-operative Store yma, ac mewn masnachdai eraill yn yr ardal; ac yr oedd iddo air uchel gan ei holl gwsmeriaid. Ond methodd ei iechyd, a bu yn gweithio fel saer celfydd. Efe oedd un a gododd y pafilion yma, sef ty ir bobl gynnal eu cyfarfodydd, yr hwn gostiodd o $3000 i $4000 ac efe oedd cofnodydd y Cambrian Society. Pregethwyd yn ei angladd ar y 27ain gan yr enwog W. Crier, cyfreithiwr, a John Moore; ac yn Gymraeg gan yr enwog W. B. Jones, gynt o Scranton, Pa. Hefyd canodd y cr mawr yr oedd yr ymadawedig yn aelod o hono o dan arweiniad W. T: James, yr hwn a gollodd lawer o ddagrau ar l ei anwyl frawd, yr hwn adawodd ar ei l weddw a merch gariadus, yn gystal a brodyr a chwiorydd.

The talented musician Mr. William H. Davies has died in Spanish Forks, Utah. He was born in Merthyr Tydfil, July 4, 1842. His funeral was a very honarable one, may had come a great distance. Mr. Davies was an honest man, and zealous for everythin that was good. He rendered great service as a teacher, teaching choirs and orchestras, and he will be sorely missed (there will be a loss after him). When Apmadoc was here both sang together, and his service to music cannot be overestimated. He gained victory in an Eisteddfod that was here, and his influnece on singers will last a long time. For a year he was the clerk of the Young Mens Co-operative Store here, and in other shops in the area; and all his customers spoke highly of him. But his health failed, and he worked as a skilled woodworker. He was one of the people who built the pavilion here, the place for people to hold their meetings, which cost from $3000 to $4000 and he was the secretary of the Cambrian Society. The sermons at his funeral on the 27th were given by the renowned W. Crier, lawyer, and John Moore; and in Welsh by the eminent W. B. Jones, formerly of Scranton, Pa. The great choir of which the departed was a member also sang, under W. T. James, who shed many tears after his dear brother, who leaves a widow and a loving daughter, as well as brothers and sisters.
