AMMANFORD NOTES. The local cricket team travelled to Llandilo last Saturday to try conclusions with their Llandilo friends, and to the surprise of their supporters acquitted themselves in a most brilliant manner, both in compiling their own score and dismissing their opponents. The heroes of the day were Councillor Jones and W. W. Brodie. The start was disastrous in the I extreme, as three wickets, so I am informed, were down for four runs. But when the afore- mentioned old and well-known wielders of the willow became associated, a different aspect was put upon the situation. The two gentlemen made a prolonged stand, and whacked the bowl- ing all over the field. I have failed to ascertain, but I have an idea that the Llandiloites were not very well represented, hence their paltry total on the tirst innings, but they fairly atoned for this in their second venture nevertheless, they were well beaten on Saturday. L'andilo are a very hot lot, and will take a lot of beating. So Ammanford may be proud of their achievement. ANNUAL SCHOOL FEAST. Saturday was a great day among the In- dependents, that is, the younger portion in general. For it was the day on which that denomination of good people celebrated their annual cup of tea together. Fortunately, the afternoon was fine, and a large number enjoyed themsehes by indulging in the usual amusements on the recreation ground (so called). It is not necessary for me to detail all the amusements. The young people who were ptesent know all about it, and from their accounts they had a royal time. I hear the members of the Band of Hope at Pontamman areoing to have their tea feast next Saturday, of which we may hear next week. WOMBWELL'S MENAGERIE. The renownec menagerie, formerly known under the name of Bostock and Wombwell, is advertised to call here on Friday evening on its way to the big fair at Llandilo. Here is another chance thrown to the thriving population of this town of investing their cash. We hope that Terror the aeriel flight will not accompany this exhibition of wild animals; if it does, I am afraid Llandilo clock will not "stop short," etc. ACCIDENT. I regret to repoit a very serious accident, which occurred Sunday afternoon. Old Mrs Jones, of the Butcher's Arms, who has lost her sight for some time, was on her way to the back of her residence, when her foot slipped, and she fell on the stone paving with such force, that she unfortunately broke her thigh. Dr. Lloyd was acquainted with the accident, and was not long in attending to the poor woman's sufferings. It is thought that she will not pull through, more so as she is over 80 years of age. A.P.S. It is usual when a mayoress is blessed with an increase to her family during her husband's year of office, to present her with a silver cradle to mark the importance of the event. We hope Ammanford will duly recognise the safe arrival of a son and heir at the Mansion House.
