LAUGHARNE. SCHOLASTIC SUCCESS.- W e note with pleasure that the name of Mr H. L. David (youngest son of Mrs M. G. David of the Post Office, Laugharnej, heads the scholarship list recently issued by the Llandovery College. Mr David has won a scholar- ship (classics) of tho value of X50. We may mention that this young gentleman's collegiate career has been signalised by a series of successes. THE PAVEMENTS.âIt is always a pleasant task to report progress. This week we are in a position to state the highly gratifying fact that the long- contemplated workâthe repairing of the pave- mentsâhas been commenced in real earnest. The flags-from 2i to 3 inches in thicknessâare from the Clynderwen quarry, and care should now be taken to preserve the same. A fruitful source of breakage may be attributed to the fact that in the off-loading of coal the carts are wantonly driven on to the flags. We sincerely hope the state of the hon. treasurer's funds will enable her to prosecute the work until a thorough improvement shall have been effected. WOODMAN SPARE THE TREE.âIt is much to be regretted that quite recently the "wood-fi?nd" (not the G.O.M.) has been busy at work in this neighbourhood. All the fine old trees in the Hollo- way fields have been felled. Our well-wooded and picturesque scenery of which we were justly proud, is being somewhat ruthlessly demolished. We deplore the loss of these fine trees, but it is useless crying Woodman spare the tree,"for the power of the mighty dollar" is too powerful a factor in the matter. We are informed that the trees along the Hills Road will shortly be cut down. THE MISSES LEACH'S PARTY.âThe party recently given by the Misses Leach, of Elm House, to the choir of St. Martin's Church, was most thoroughly enjoyed, and appreciated by all who were fortunate enough to be present. After an excellent tea, various games were indulged in, and later on, dancing, when Mrs Lanning accompanied in an admirable and praiseworthy manner. After having spent a most enjoyable evening, the prevailing sentiment was that the Misses Leach were "jolly good ladies," and so say we. The choir deserve encouragement, and the Misses Leach are to be commended for their courtesy and generosity. HARK FORWARD!.âConsidering that 20 years have rolled by since the last meet of foxhounds in this neighbourhood, it is not surprising that the announcement of the meet at Cross Inn, on Tuesday last, brought together large concourse of spectators. The weather was favourable, the orthodox "southerly wind and cloudy sky" pro- claiming it a hunting morning, was realised on this occasion. The work commenced at Brixtarw wood, and was continued at Lower Llandawke then away to Cwmbrwyn, the fox harking back to Lower Llandawke. Four foxes were started, but not one caught. The neighbourhood teems with foxes just now, and the farmers are naturally anxious to see their number diminish. I
