CWMLLYNFELL NOTES THE SEWERAGE SCHEME. I An interesting ratepayers meeting took place last night (Thursday) at the workmen's lodgeroom, Rhosamman, when the residents in Quarter Bach gathered under the presidency of Mr. Morgan Rees, chairman of the Parish Council, to consider the new sewerage scheme. Two matters were down for discussion,viz., the estimate of the cost of a local scheme of sewerage for Ward 1; and the advisability of opposing the I Amman Valley drainage scheme as it affects the local parish, and to take steps accordingly. It was anticipated that the proceedings would he of a very lively character. BLACK MOUNTAIN COLLIERY. I The rumours to winch reference has been made in these columns for several weeks past concerning the Black Moun- tain Colliery have aroused considerable discussion in the village, and those who were inclined to think that they were groundless will probably he sur- prized to learn that such is certainly not the case. As a matter of fact several labourers, etc., are now working at the colliery, and we have been in- formed on reliable authority that Mr. Morgan, late manager at Cwmllvnfell Colliery, has been appointed to a simi- lar post at the Black Mountain. Fur- ther important developments are an- ticipated in the course of a few days' time. I FOOTBALL GOSSIP. n.. I I 1 .1 I The home team rumiiea their en- gagement with Lougher on the latter's ground on Saturday, and a memorable match ensued, Cwmllynfell being de- feated by 12 points to 3. It is only fair to point out, however, that the local team were greatly handicapped by hav- ing a much weakened side, whilst Lougher, who are acknowledged to be a really superior team, had a strong fifteen in the field as well as the un- doubted advantage of playing on their own ground. Nevertheless the match was a good one, and although so heavi- ly defeated Cwmllvnfell played a plucky game. The local scorer was E. Evans, who "placed" a nice try towards the end of the encounter. Cwmllvnfell are hoping, and indeed expecting, to win back their laurels on the occasion of Lougher's return visit to the local ground. The Seconds entertained Gorseinon, and a fairly attractive game resulted in a draw, each side registering a try. On Saturday the Firsts have a friendly match with Brynamman away, and the Seconds will be at home to Birchgrove in a League match. "GWILYM WYN." I The well-known local bard, Gwilym Wyn, has some beautiful poetry in the current issue of the national magazine "Y Geninen," which signifies that he has not lost his power of writing really excellent verse. I TOMENOWEN WATER SUPPLY. I I Despite the fact that the pipes for conducting the new water supply from Cefnbrvnbrain to Tomen Owen have been lying on the road side for almost a month, no steps have yet been taken to place them in position, and local residents are wanting to know when this is to be done. As has already been pointed out this is an urgent matter, and the work ought to be put in hand as early as possible. There is a rumour to the effect that the delay has been caused through a shortage of labour. I DEATH OF MRS. TOM W. JONES. I Vv e regret to announce the death, which took place on Friday, of Mrs. Mary Hannah Jones, wife of Mr. Tom W. Jones, of Gwilym-road, Cwmllvnfell, a prominent local resident and an ex- president of the co-operative society. Deceased, who was approaching 40 years of age, had not been well for some time, but death was not expected, and came somewhat as a shock to her many friends. The interment took place at the local burial ground on Tuesday afternoon, and was largely attended. The service was conducted by the Rev. D. Jeremy Jones, and among others present were the Rev. J. Rees, Cwm- llvnfell, and the Rev. Ben Davies, Pantteg. Deceased leaves no family. MARRIAGE: REES-PARRY. I An interesting local marriage took place on Friday at Carmel Chapel, Gwauncaegurwen, the contracting par- ties being Mr. Win. Rees, Gwauncae- gurwen, and Miss Bessie Parry, of Gnoil-road, Cwmllynfell, who is well known in the village. The ceremony, which was of a quiet character, was performed by the Rev. D. G. Davies, Carmel, and the Rev. J. Davies, Bryn- gwilym. Mr. and Mrs. Rees are, we understand, to live in Gnoll-road.
