AMMANFORD. You will want to send your Photograph to your friends at Christmas. The best work is always obtainable at A. Bryant' s Studio, 8, College Street, Ammanford. Have them taken early and avoid the rush. A very successful mart was held at Tiry- dail yesterday, the auctioneer being Mr. W. N. Jones, Dyffiyn. The following were sold: -Cattle, 27; sheep, 84. There was a good attendance, in spite of the inclement weather. The death occurred on Monday last of Mr. J. Shreiff, of High Street, at the age of 74 years. The family removed to Ammanford some years ago, and are highly respected. The funeral took place to-day (Thursday), the place of burial being the Christian Temple burial-ground. On Monday evening, at the Church Room, the first of a series of meetings to held in the Parish of Bettws-cum-Ammanford by the teachers of the local Church Sunday Schools took place. An excellent paper dealing with the responsibility and duty of Sunday School teachers was given by the Rev. D. W. Thomas, M.A., vicar of Llandebie. The Rev. J. \V. Jones, B.A. (vicar), presided. We extend our hearty congratulations to Miss Lorraine Thomas, the daghter of Mr. and Mrs. J. Thomas, 31, Talbot Road, Tirydail, on her recent success in passing the third examination in the Junior Division of the Trinity College of Music, which was held at Swansea. Miss Thomas, though very young, has previously passed some examina- tions in music, and her future is undoubtedly a bright one. Gunner Handel Edwards, a son of Mr. and Mrs. Edwards, of Norman Road, Tirydail, is home for a few days' leave. He has served on a merchant ship for over two years, and has played an important part in our cam- paign against the subs." His experience is full of very interesting and thrilling incidents, and it is no exaggeration to say that the merchant seamen of our country have dis- charged their duties in a most praiseworthy manner. The death of Mrs. Sarah Evans, of 21, College Street, took place on Wednesday morning, at the advanced age of 77 years. The deceased was one of the oldest residents of the town and was highly respected. Her husband, the late Mr. \Vm. Evans, pre- deceased her about six years ago. The late Mrs. Evans was the mother of P.C. Tom Evans, the wen-known Welsh international forward. The funeral takes place on Satur- day next at 3.30 p.m., the interment being at Bethany burial-ground. Wireless Operator W. Jones, a son of Mr. and Mrs. John Jones, The Nurseries, Tirydail, has written to his parents stating that he was glad to have the honour of being alowed to be one of the boys who took over the German Fleet. Operator Jones jovially adds- that he was surprised that the Germans ever intended entering into battle against our r teet; their condition was weak, and their appearance could be truly described as being diirty and downhearted. Operator Jones has -aerved for three years. Mr. and Mrs. Tom Davies, of 60, LIan-1 debie Road, desire to express their -,i?, thanks for th kir.d sympathy extended to them in their sad bereavement through the loss of their son, Priv. D. T. Davies (a report of whose death appeared in our last issue, and whose photo appears I and Mr3. Davies, the widow of deceased, also thanks all kind friends for thejr sincere sympathy with her in her sorrow. Among local heroes home on leave this week is Gunner D. J. Jones, of High Street, Pontammar. Gunner Jones is attached to the R.G.A., and has seen thirteen mont'V service in France. He is well known in the town and district, having at one time carried oi a tailor's business at Tycroes. Gunner Jones is an ardent Churchman, having been a Sunday School superintendent for some years, and also conductor of All Saints' Church Choir. He expects in the near future to leave these shores, his company being amongst those selected to go to a foreign country. We are pleased to report that another local hero has arrived home from the clutches of the Germans, after having been a prisoner of war for about eight months, Priv. W. O. Davies, attached to the ? 8th Welsh, who joined the Army about two years ago and was drafted to France. Priv. Davies took part in some important battles, and was taken priso-nci in the Battle of Armientieres in the early part of this year. He was made to work behind the German lines, and his recollections of the manner in which he was treated are anything but pleasant. Priv. Davies, whose parents reside at 48, Wind Street, Ammanford, was formerly employed by Messrs. Williams Bros., grocers, Bryn- hyfryd, Swansea. We extend to the hero ou hearty welcome. On Thursday evening last, a dance was held in the Drill Hall, the M.C. being Mr. Fred Jenkins. An orchestra was in attend- I ance, under the conductorship of Mr. Geo. I Thomas, A.L.C.M., and played in fine style, greatly adding to the pleasure of the evening; and the whole proceedings reflected credit on the instructor for the way in which he conducts his classes. The whole of the profits, amounting to Â£ 10, were received Ly Mr. T. Rainford, secretary of the local branch of the Discharged and Demobilised Sailors' and Soldiers' Federation, through the medium of which the sum realised, together with a substantial sum from the funds of the Federation, will be distributed amongst the I 1 11 1 war widows of the town as a little extra comfort for Christmastide. A very praiseworthy movement has been introduced into the life of the town by the Physical Culture Classes which are being held at Parcyrhun Schools under the Carmar- thenshire Education Committee's scheme. Up to the present the classes are only for mem- bers of the fair sex who are over 14 years of age, but it is anticipated that in the near future it will be possible to inaugurate classes for boys as well. The classes are held on Thursday evenings from 6 to 8.30 p.m., and under the able instruction of Mrs. Fletcher, of 80, College Street, the success of the classes is assured, provided the pupils do their part. The movement is worthy of the support of all who value health and physical fitness, and it is to be hoped that the ladies of the town and district will unite together and thereby assist to make the project a really successful one. It should also be stated that the fee is 2s. per term, which is refunded to those who have attended all the classes. Mrs. Fletcher, the instruc- tress, is a well-known physical culturist, having been a member of the London Poly- technic Club for many years. during which time she gained certificater. for efficiency. An excellent reception concert was held at Ebenezer Chapel on Tuesday evening to wel- come home Priv. Evan J. Evans, who has been a prisoner of war in Germany (as reported in our previous issue), and Priv. W. 0. Davies. of Wind Street, who was also taken prisoner by the Germans (a report of whose return appears in our columns). The meeting was ably presided over by Mr. John Lewis, J.P., Bryn-Rhug. The following pro- gramme was gone through:â€”" 0 cofia am em Gwlad," the audience; Chairman's address; solo, Miss Drinkwater; solo, There s a Land, Miss Hughes recitation, Mr. Joseph Phillips; solo, Mr. T. F. Rees; recitation, Leaving it off by drees" (by request), Mr. Percy James; solo, Mona," Mr. Brinley Williams. A collection was then made, and the programme continued as follows:-Recitation, Clwb Arian," Mr. John Williams; penillion were then sung by Mr. Tom Williams (specially composed for the occasion by the artiste). The chief event of the evening took place at this juncture, when Mr. Hiley Harries, The Bank, in very appropriate terms referred to the great debt of gratitude they owed the two heroes who had been prisoners of war. Every one pre- sent that evening was indebted to Privs. Evans and Davies for having gone out to right for them. They had endured a great deal for our sakes, and he thanked God that they were allowed to come back safe. They all felt proud of them, and they could even say that they loved them. He had the greatest pleasure in presenting the two heroes with the usual gifts as a token of their best wishes and appreciation of their services. (Applause) The recipients returned thanks for the gifts. Mr. John Rees, Pantytiynnon, rendered a solo in good style, and the Rev. J. Griffiths, B.A., B.D. (pastor), made very suitable remarks regarding the good services rendered by Privs. Evans and Davies. That meeting was different to all the other meetings which had been held in Ebenezer, inasmuch as the soldiers who were welcomed home would not have to return to the Front, as was usually the case. He welcomed them, and hoped that when all the boys would return they would have a huge concert and a feast to celebrate the occasion. Mr. Criffiths remarks were loudly applauded. Solo, 0; na fyddai' n haf o hyd, Mr. Morley Lewis; solo, Mr. Jenkin Matthews; solo Mr. Tom Williams. Mr. J. Williams, wind Street, also presented Priv. Evans with a gift on behalf of the Bob Morgan Dramatic Society, of which Priv. Evans was a member. The singing of Hen Wlad fy Nhadau," Mr. Tom Williams taking the solo, concluded a very fine concert. Thanks are due to Mr. Willie Leyshon, T.C.L., Tirydail, for his valuable services in presiding at the piano. Mr. D. Brynmor Davies also deserves thanks- for having arranged such an excellent programme.
BRYNAMMAN. I The worshippers at Gibea Church have been offered to hold the Undeb at their edifice next summer, but they do not see the way clear to accept such offer. The Union w.!s held here about 21 years ago. Lower Brynamman has at last succeeded in obtaining a polling booth. Hitherto the Glamorganshire residents of Brynamman had to travel to Gwaun-caeg-urwen to vote, and it was full time this convenience was secured. This seat is contested by the Rev. Herbert Morgan, M.A., Bristol (Labour), and Mr. Hugh Edwards (Liberal) while Mr. Towyn Jones (Liberal) and Dr. J. H. Williams (Labour) seek to represent the constituency of which Upper Brynamman forms a part. The turmoil of the Parliamentary Election campaign has broken the stillness of peace. The boom of arguments and the rattle of verbal controversy in favour and against the respective candidates in the field dominate the ordinary humdrum of life. The battle for the masses' confidence and favours has begun, and it promises to reach a mighty climax ere the day of judgment dawns. Young men and women having been privileged to record their votes, the event must necessarily prove the most animated and interesting in the annals of electioneering affairs. The Brynamman Branch of the National Federation of Disabled and Demobilised Sailors and Soldiers is making headway. Several meetings have been held preparatory to entering upon a campaign which has its motive in seeking justice to those who have done their duty towards their country in the great war. Most enjoyable social evenings have been held between the business confer- ences. *We are given to understand that there are many who are deeply interested in the welfare of the maimed and unfit ex- Service men prepared to join the Society as honorary members, and to contribute towards their fund. We are now in a position to state that the branch has passed a resolution that honorary members be invited to join. The amount to be subscribed by outsiders is to be left to the discretion of same. They will be allowed to attend the meetings and express their opinions, but will not be privileged to vote. The Society is prepared to extend a most cordial welcome to all thus inclined to assist. The presence of all who wish to be- come honorary members will be sought at a meeting called for that purpose in the near future. The members proper have decided to make a contribution of 4d. a week to the treasury. They consider that to have honorary members to join the Society will not only assist their cause financially, but will also strengthen their Union in a social sense also. The Brynamman lady choristers appear to mean real business respecting the formation of a ladies' choir in the place. Evidently, the ladies were quite anxious for such a society to be inaugurated. The fact that nearly a hundred vocalists attended rehearsal on Sunday last goes far to prove their deter- mination to firmly establish a ladies' choir in the village. Madam K. Morgan-Williams has been elected to wield the baton, and the choir s vocal abilities have already been tested. The president of the choir is Mrs. (Dr.) Owen, Danycoed, who delivered a splendid speech at the formal opening meet- ing. Mrs. (Dr.) Jones, Argoed. and Mrs. (Dr.) Corkey are the vice-presidents. The following representative committee has been chosen to supervise the welfare of the organ- isation:â€”Mrs. W. D. Thomas, Tanybryn; Mrs. Jenkin Jones, Nant Villa; Mrs. John Llewelyn, Min-y-Ceunant; Mrs. J. Lee Davies; Mrs. Alva Richards, Hafodygan: Mrs. Davies, The Vicarage; Mrs. Gomer H arries, Penybont VA'carage; Mrs. Goni?-r Harries, Penybont House; Miss Getta Beynon; Mrs. John Rees, Banwen; Miss Williams, Glyn Road Miss L. Price, Lower Post Office; Mrs. J. D. Howells, Belle Vue Terrace; Mrs. Fred Hargreaves; Mrs. M. Davies, Drapery Stores; Nurse Williams, Lower Brynamman Mrs. M. A. Evans, iron- monger, Park Street. The hon. secretary is Miss Sal Jones, Upper Council Schools; while Miss Sal A. Rees, Lower Council Schools, is hon. treasurer. We can venture to anticipate some excellent choral music in the near future.

LLANDILO. J The monthly meeting of the Llandilo Urban District Council was held at the Public Hall, Llandilo, on Tuesday evening, Mr. A. E. Harries, J.P., in the chair. A full account thereof will appear in our next week's issue. Mr. Thomas Williams, of Church Houre, Manordilo, has won the first and special prize and president's medal at the Ancona Club Show at Birmingham last week. He also won first, second and third prizes at the Welsh Ancona Club Show held at Port Tafbot the week previous. At Ebenezer Baptist Guild, on Tuesday evenig, a lecture was given by the Rev. Hugh Evans, Felingwm. The subject was Ad- fywiad Crefyddol a'r angen am dano." Mr. Evan Davies, Pistillgwyn Farm, Llandilo, presided. The Rev. G. Edmund Williams, Mr. Charles Jenkins, and Mr. R. A. Evans also spoke. The lecture was well attended and highly appreciated. The Llandilo and District Cattle Mart was held at the Ffairfach Auction Ground on Monday last. There were 95 fat cattle and 443 fat sheep, which were disposed cf at con- trolled prices; and 12 calves, which sold at from 26s. to 62s. 6d. each. The auctioneer was Mr. T. L.. Harries, and the graders were Mr. James Hobbs, the Home Farm, Golden Grove, and Mr. Jonathan Jones, Quay Street, Ammanford. Heartiest congratulations to Miss Evelyn Morris, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. D. Jones Morris, of Eirianfa, Clarence Road, on her recent success in passing the Intermediate Examination of the Trinity College of Music. We predict a bright musical future for this brilliant little player. She was formerly a pupil of Mrs. Edwin Hopkins, of Llandilo. -1 -P k ins, of L l an d l o. but latterly coached by her uncle, Mr. J. Harries-Thomas, A.R.C.M., Ammanford. The funeral took place on Wednesday of last week of Mr. William Simon, retired workhouse master, Llandilo (an account of whose death appeared in our issue of last week). The body was brought up by train from Swansea, and arrived at Llandilo Station about 3.5 p.m., where it was met by a large number of the inhabitants of the town and district, and conveyed by hearse to the Llan- dilo Parish Churchyard. where the interment took place. Accompanying the body from Swansea were the deceased's two sons, viz., Rev. John Simon, vicar of St. David's, Brecon, and Mr. Wi lliam Simon, of Ashton- under-Lyne. There were also present several relatives of the deceased. The funeral cor- tege was met at the churchyard gates by the Ven. Archdeacon Robert Williams, M.A. (vicar) and the Rev. W. Arthur Jones (curate), who conducted the service. The death took place at No. 2, Brisken Villas, on Friday last, after an illness of short duration from pneumonia following influenza, of Mr. J. H. James, an employee of the Llandilo Saw Mills, Ltd., at the age of 36 years. The deceased was a single man, and lodged at the above address. He had been in indifferent health during the last twelve months or more. He was a native of Fish- guard. I he funetal took place 6ff I last, the place of burial being the Llandilo Parish Churchyard. The only relative in attendance was the deceased's brother, Mr. George James, of Fishguard, who was accom- panied by Mr. Frank Walker, with whom the deceased lodged. The Rev. W. Alfred Jones (curate) officiated. The employees of the Llandilo Saw Mills were all in attend- ance, business at that establishment being closed for the afternoon, and the firm generously undertook all the arrangements of the burial and bore all the expense.
PENYGROES. We regret to learn that Mr. and Mrs. George Taylor, of Castellrhingyll. Peny- groes. have received official intimation of the death of their son, Priv. Charlie Taylor, in France, who made the supreme sacrifice while in action on the 8th of November- three days before the armistice was signed. We extend our sincere sympathy to Mr. and i Mrs. Taylor and family in their bereavement. Although the war is practically over and there is much cause for rejoicing, we must not forget the parents, widows and orphans who have given their loved ones in this the greatest war in the history of the world. Sympathy is very comforting, but financial aid is in many cases needed. We who are left to enjoy the fruits of the war should also see to it that our fallen heroes shall be remembered for all time, by erecting a substantial memorial to the boys who have laid down their lives for their country. Many towns have already in- augurated such a movement, as also have some villages. It is up to the inhabitants of Peny- groes and district to see that they do not lag in the matter of erecting a worthy memorial. A grand reception concert, in honour of Priv. Gwilym Jones, Gorsddu, was held at the Penygroes Vestry on Friday evening last. The chair was occupied by Mr. Richard Rees. The programme, which at the com- mencement appeared to be very short, was extended to a good length owing to the num- ber of encores, all the artistes acquitting them- selves well. The following contributed to the excellent programmeMiss Letitia Davies Blaenau; Mrs. Emlyn Edwards, Penygroes; Master Elwyn Rees, Hendre; Mr. John L. Hughes, Penygroes; Mr. R. D. Rees (Rhyd- fab Hendre), Mr. John L. Hughes. Peny- groes, the Gorslas Music Lovers (conductor, Mr. Wm. HTughes), and the Penygroes Silver Band. Mr. D. W. Hughes presidea at the piano. The guest of the evenjng was presented with the usual gift by Mrs. E. Edwards. Mr. Rees Rees proposed a vote of thanks to all who had taken part, and Mr. John Lewis, Gorsddu, seconded. The National Anthem was then sung, Mr. E. Edwards taking the solo. During the evening, Mr. John Harries (Irlwyn), Bettws, was pass- ing through the village, and on being informed that the above concert was being held, called in and contributed to the programme with an excellent speech jn EngLish and Welsh. He treated the audience to some of his witticisms, and also dealt with the future of our country. The committee are thankful to all who took part, and under the circumstances proffer special thanks to Irlwyn."

Ammanford Urban Council. The monthly meeting of the Ammanford Urban District Council was held at the j Y.M.C.A. Institute on Wedne&day vening. WALL IN QUAY STREET. Mr. T. Fletcher said that a point arose out of the minutes of the Health Committee's meeting with r< iard 1 1 the re-erection of the wall outside ivy Cottage, Quay Street. He did not see what right the Health Committee had to discuss the question. They had no jurisdiction over the question. He would like to know under whose jurisdiction the matter came. Mr. W. Evans said that the matter was dealt with by the Health Committee as a domestic matter, and that Mr. Fletcher was out of order. My. Fletcher said that he had a right to ask a question on the matter. Mr. W. Evans replied that he should give notice of motion before discussing the ques- tion. Mr. Fletcher remarked that he was per- fectly in order in dealing with the matter. The Health Committee had no business at all to deal with the question. That was his con- tention. Then followed a few sharp exchanges of opinions between Mr. Evans and Mr. Fletcher. Mr. Fletcher asked the Chairman for his ruling on the matter. The Chairman having examined the Stand- ing Orders, intimated that the matter should have come for consideration before the Roads Committee, as it was within their jurisdiction. It related to the roads, &c. M. Fletcher maintained that the Health Com.iittee had no right to deal with the matter. They had no authority to transact the business. It was entirely out of order. If Mr. Wm. Evans was right, then he (the speaker) required proof of the same at the meeting. He was quite in order in bringing the question on that night. Mr. D. George said that as Chairman of the Health Committee it was his duty to say he was sorry the Committee had dealt with the matter. He admitted it was wrong of the Health Committee to deal with the question at all. He had looked the matter up, and had found out they had no business to deal witfi the matter. Rev. J. Morgans reported that the Com- mittee had met on Tuesday evening to inspect the place, and it was suggested that Lord Dynevor should be asked to have the wall which was in front of Ivy Cottage removed, in order that the Council might extend the curve down to the drains. The drains were full, and the water, &c., ran into Ivy Cottage. Another point was that so much traffic took place at the Great Western Railway yard, and the position was very dangerous. Mr. Fletcher said it was useless re-erecting an old wall at a spot where the road was so narrow. They would not get 23 feet. The old wall was partly pulled down, and it was never intended to have it re-erected. There was an old well there now, and it was a disgrace to the town. If the Health Committee wanted any work to do, they would find plenty there. The mud and filth in that cprner was dis- graceful. There was considerable traffic there, and no two vehicles could pass one another at the spot. It was a disgrace to Ammanford. He had seen carts loaded having to go back so that other carts might pass. It was a disgrace to re-erect an old wall which had been taken down for several yearsâ€”four or five years. They were com- plaining about the spot being narrow on one I -side, and they were now having a wall re- erected on the other side. There was only a space of 17 feet 6 inches between the two telegraph poles. Some people remarked that they looked liked football goalposts. When improvements were carried out, they could ask the Postmaster-General to remove the posts. He was of opinion that they should get the old wall pulled down. Mr. W. Evans said that only a portion of the old wall was being re-erected. After the Clerk had expressed his view, the proposal was put to the meeting by Mr. Fletcher that the persons affected be asked to withhold their hands, and not to proceed with the work until the matter be considered at a future meeting, and that the Surveyor should prepare a plan of the spot. The Clerk was also asked to look into the matter by the next meeting. This was adopted. Mr. John Davies suggested that the ques- tion of the well be cleared up also. This was agreed to. PUBLIC APPOINTMENTS. It was decided to advertise any public appointments to be made by the Council in future.
