lTOWN TALK. Port Talbot's meat ration this week-end was chilled beef. It met with a cold re- ception. â :0 A Port Talbot tailor announces: -N* I orders taken for Whitsun." Bad for the old elo's man. â:o: â The police. it has been decided, are en. t'tlf 1 r.. 1 -ia l'uuui for hca\y walkers.â" Punch." â :o Some samples of water taken la6t week if South Wales were found, says Punch," to contain 45 per cent. â { milk. â: o: â Exciting incident in Wind-^reel!âOne n an dropped a match: another man ciaamed it. We understand County Court srocc-c-duu?. an* contemplated. â :0:â It took four men- to excavate r. Luge stone which our Xeath pu blishe;- found in h;s 'allotment. He has been wondering ever sines how many men it took to put it there? â: o: â A registration form canvasser at Neath M per cent, of the forms coi- 'i-t-vl had to be filled in by himself. He is suffering from writer's cramp and a bnd temper! A Neat-li householder has returned his me.it card instead of the form of registra- tion und er the Representation of the Pe.>- plrs Act. Hard lines, unless he is a vegetanian I o: Not a whip is being used bj. the hauliers at the Abererave Collieries. We wonder whether the fifteen horses sold at Tues- day's sale will be' so favourably dealt with under new ownership. â :o There are nearly 600 old boys of thp Swansea- Grammar School in the FOTCCS at the present time, of whom 299 have obtained commissions. Certainly a record of which the old town should be proud! â :0:â A Port Talbot ^pntleman, residing within 100 yards erf the Post Offiee re- ceived a telegram at five o'cloc-k one duy this week. It only arrived at the Post Office about 1.30. Things do hum at Port. Talbot! cr A conscientious objector, before the West Glamorgan Appeal Tribunal, dc- chi red that he had read of all the German atrocities, but he still loved the Germans. He was ordered to join the Colours. Tu make their acquaintar(- we presume. â: o: â "Cape Horn." that portion of the Swansea Docks which in pre-war day- and up to a few months ago, vas a com- mercial bee-hive between 11 and 12 o'clock daily, is now materially thinned. The number from the merry throng gone to swell the military ranks has made a \T,f"t difference. -:0:- The Rev. Alcwyn Jones, curate-ir charge at Tonna, has sent our Neath co-- respondent an egg, as a fair sample ei' %ilip.t he is getting from a three year old k It's ^mailer than c bantam's W» hope the curate's Easter egg was a little bigger! That Budget forecast has can sod laces in certain local circles. No soor.cv has the fourpenny" reached S wansca than there is a rumour of extra duty on be.S!-r, and consequently higher prices loom large in the offing! It's a. world of ups and downs. â; o: â During the last few weeks Aberavon magistrates have' had to deal with about 200 summonses for non-payment of in- <â ;.me tax. The delinquents were mostly Afan Valley colliers, some of whom re- fuse to pay on principle. The comb-out will. no doubt, relieve them of the tax collector's attentions. â :o:â Walking across the Hafod bridge ths other evening, a resident thought he had come across a run-away menagerie. He counted ⢠no fewer than eight cats in ^the middle of the road appearing to be hold- ing a sort of conclave. Where they got to after a stonø was thrown, he sayo, beats him! â so:â No wonder a. wells known Swan-sea man looked downhearted last night. The shops were out of his favourite brand of to- baoco. he dropped and broke the first egg of the season from his hen-roost, a new pair of trousers was ripped by oorttact with a nail, and he had dreamt a certain horse had won a race, backed it-aiil l-c^t! â :0:â Over a long journey the man in the tramcar h'-Id forth on the myriad faults and failings of the Government. Lloyd George was to blame for this, for i hd in fact it was a moot point whether, in fact, he was not to hlame for the war! And then a sweet thing blandly inquired a0- to the critic's intentions. Oh," as the reply. I've got to Join up next week." So there! :o:â Captain Guthrie Morgan, M.C., the weil known Aberavon rugby player, son of Dr. Vyrnwy Morgan, had a cordial welcome when he came to the ancient borough the other day. He has been out in Salo- rica, and, like the true gentleman tlnt he is. he had brought with him a list of the Aberavon boys out there, and he paid a Personal rhjit to the home of each, one tn tell their relatives how they fared. That's the spirit. â :o Curious how people meet after many vears. Mr. Tom Byrne. of the Grand Theatre, has just had an unueml ex- perience in this respect. A man Ito called at the theatre and the a-draft.ee manager of the company thie week both /7v-eLi to be feH()w-<,hor;T5 in ? The I Rnnaway Girl" of 19 y-ea?? f?&. The U Betty" Company also includes an old school chum in the person of MT. George Martin, who entered the profession tliLO same year as Mr Byrne, and in addition Mr. C. F Cooke, who was a fellow-member of thf National Grar. °p:>"a. Co. of 1. and Mi*. W. Robins, the musical director, who occupied a similar post at St. James's when Mr. Bvrne went there .is manager fo-r "T Mrs. l\VTds>ll in 1905. -:0- The following are specimens of answers giiven by c.andrid.ates at an examination test at a schoolânot elementa.Ty-within- hailing distance of Swansea:â What is meant by the Fisher BiH ?"â A Bill for fishermen."
