GWYS and CWMLLYHFLL Mr. Howell Lewis, son of Mr. Howell Lew is, Myrtle Hill, Gwys, and the well- known Swansea and International foot- baUer, haa now left the locality for Shrewsbury, where he has gone to join the Royal Welsh Fusiliers as a commis- sioned officer. He is the third son of Mr. Howell Lewis who has gone to the colours. Mr. Howell Lewis, junr., is well-known throughout South Wales as a keen football player, having played for Swansea for years. Previous to the out- break of wax he was selected captain of the All Whites. He has also played for his county and country. His large circle of friends throughout the Principality will wish him every success in the ser- vice of his King and country. Private Albert Martin, of the Breck- nocks Battalion, has been home for a short leave, and left the place on Tues- day for a move to Franoe. His friends and acquaintances were pleased to see him looking so well and cheerful, and he left with their best wishes. An interesting evening was spent at the Temperance Hall on Friday, when there was a fine selection of pictures ex- hibited on the screen, entitled the '"Martyr's Bov." Mr. Evan Kinsey ex- plained the views to the audience, while Mr. Willie Williams and Lewis Kinsey were responsible for the lantern, and much credit is due to them for their faithful labour. Next Monday another series ef pictures will be shown. Mr. Lewis Roland Williams left the place for London last Monday to take up duties under the Marconi College, where he recently passed an examination as a first-class operator. Rev. W. D. Thomas (Brynamman) oc- cupied the pulpit at Ebenezer on Sunday, and delivered powerful sermons which were greatly enjoyed. Sunday next the Rev. John Llewelyn, Rhosamman, will preach at this chapel. News came to hand last week that Mr. Morgan Morgans. late of Ystradowen, Cwmllynfell, died on the 17th December in America. Mr. Morgans was a well- known gentleman farmer, and a. native of Cwmllynfell. He left for America. about 32 years ago, and has had a very prominent and successful career. He made three or four visits to his old neighbourhood during his sojourn in the States, al-idi his last visit was not very long ago, when he looked quite hale and hearty. 0 We regret to announce the death of Mr. George Ware, which took place on Thursday at the age of 78, after a long illness. He came to the district as a ganger on the Midland Railway about 40 years ago. His wife predeceased him many years ago, and there remain three daughters to mourn their loss, one in Swansea, and two at Cwmllynfell, one of whom is the wife of Mr. Chas. Ware (one of the Brynhenllys Colliery owners) with whom the deceased had been stay- ing for a number of years. The inter. ment took place at Cwmllynfell burial ground on Tuesday, when a large num- ber of the inhabitants and friends from different districts came to pay their last I tribute of respect. Revs. J. Jeremy Jones and John Rees conducted the burial ser- vices. Nothing pleases the boys at the Front so much as news of home. Send them the "Llais" every week. A meeting of the ratepayers of the Quarter Bach ward was held at Tomen- Owen Council Schools on Tuesday even- ing, for the purpose of electing a District Councillor in place of the late Mr. Rees D. Powell. J.P. There were four candi- dates on the list, and Mr. John Hughes, Cefnbrynbrain, was appointed by a ma- jority of 37 votes. The successful candi- date is well known in the locality, has been a member of the Parish Council for a considerable number of years, and has taken a keen and energetic part in all things pertaining to the interest of the district. We a.re sure he will make an admirable member. A grand concert was held at Rhiwfawr School on Saturday, which proved a great success, through the efforts of Mr. D. J. Price, headmaster. The school children gave this treat also on Xmas night, but by special request of the in- habitants it wag repeated on this occa- I sion. A most enjoyable evening was spent by all. The Rev. W. D. Roderick occupied the chair. At St. Margaret's Church on Sunday evening last the Rev. T. Evans held an- other of his increasingly popular "War Services," during the course of which he read a number of interesting letters from j local soldiers in Gallipoli, France, and at t home. Mr. Evans is doing excellent ser- i vice by thus keeping up the keen in- terest of the locality in its soldier boys, who are in turn strengthened and en- couraged in their arduous duties. A fine performance of the Revue "On the Road to Harlech," presented by 20 of the most talented little artistes of Gwauncaegurwen and district, specially trained by Mr. W. Llan Davies, was given at the Public Hall, Cwmllynfe.1, on Saturday last, before a large crowd. The accompanist was Mr. John Oliver Rees, who proved himself a master on the piano. CYMDEITHAS GYMRAEG GWYS. Cynhaliwyd y gymdeithas uchod nos Iau, pryd y traddododd y llywydd, Mr. T. R. Thomas, ysgolfeistr, anerchiad ar "Y ddrama fel cyfrwng addysg." Cafwyd gwledd o'r iawn ryw gan Mr. Thomas. I YMADAWIAD MR. JOSEPH WIL-I LIAMS. I Blin genym gael arddeall fod yn mwT- I iad yr hen dad Mr. Joseph Williams, I llyfrwerthwr, Abergwys, ymadael a'r Cwm am Dreherbert, i fyw gyda'i ferch. Cydymdeimlwn yn fawr ag ef yn ei unig- edd blin wedi colli ei anwyl briod, a'i blant o'r lie. Afrad ar ofod fyddai i ni geisio dangos y golled ga y Cwm ar ei ol. Digon yw dweud y cyll pob achos da gefnogydd ffyddlawn, a'r tylawd a'r anghenus y cyfaill a'r cynorthwywr flawn cydymdeimlad. Credwn nas ddylai gael ei ollwng o'n plith heb i'r Cwm gael mantais i dalu teyrnged o barch iddo am ei wasarlaeth mawr yn y lie. Mentrwn cyhoeddi cvfarfod er ystyried y peth, yn y Temperance Hall nos Lun nesaf, am 7 o'r gloch? Y mae yn deilwng gwneuth- ur ohonom hyn iddo. CYFARFOD YMADAWOL I FILWR.
