Jack Evans and Hellings, of Llwynpia, two crack forwards, were at Llanelly on Monday and offered te go on tour with the Llanelly team.

High time, too, judging from the closing hours now in vogue. Intent upon following the practice in vogue under the Llanelly School Board, the Pembrey authority are anxious to interview all the lady applicants for positions before the appointments are made. Arrangements have been made for the examination of candidates for Gorsedd degrees in view of the Newport National Eisteddfod. The Rev. Elvet Lewis, Llanelly, has been appointed one of the examiners. Mr. Eden Northmore Jones, barrister-at-law, de- livered a brilliant lecture last evening at the Law Students' Union on International Law in relation to war." Mr. T. J. Williams, B.A., presided.

At the meeting of the governors of Aberystwyth College held at Llanelly on Friday last, Principal Roberts paid a most graceful tribute to the progress made by Llanelly in matters relating to education during the last few years.

There was a third performance on Wednesday evening of the programme of music and drill prepared by the united sehools of Llanelly for the benefit of the Charities of the N. U. T., hundreds of people having been turned away on Monday and Tuesday evenings, unable to gain admittance. The Venerable Archdeacon Griffiths was happy and humorous to a degree while in the chair at the meeting of the court of governors of Aberystwyth College at Llanelly on Friday. His reply to the customary vote of thanks had a few touching references to his age and his devotion to patriotism. The Schoolmaster of the 27th ult, contains the official list of 1230 names ofrepresentatives to attend the N. U.T. conference at Swansea next Easter. This does not include the foreign delegates who will attend to represent the educational institutions of several European countries. The annual tea and meeting of Park Church took place last evening.

A public meeting was held the other day at Pontyeates to consider the need of light railways in the district. Several speakers declaimed on the fact that under existing conditions they could get by rail from thier district by a goods' line only, and they had-to travel as "parcels." Mr. J. L. Bowen, local agent of the Castle Line has beard from Mr. John Rees, late of Llanelly, who joined the Cape Mounted Police last year. Young Rees is now on duty about a 100 miles from Buluwayo. He was on duty not long since in hunting up some native assassins who had murdered a few defenceless white women. A sad accident occurred at Dafeu on Monday. A lad, James Ryan, aged 13 years, playing about a rail- way aiding with some friends, proceeded to hide between two statiooary trucks. Shunting operations were meanwhile, unbeknown to him. carried on and he was jammed to death by the colliding buffers. Death was instantaneous. An inquest was held on Wednes- day. Success to our choral society. On Monday they will compete at the Tonypandy Eisteddfod, and a special train will leave at 9.40. Friends of the society should, therefore, avail themselves ef the opportunity. A public rehearsal will be held ou Friday (to-morrow) evening at the Market Hall, when the competitive choruses will be rendered. We are asked to state that the final rehearsal on Sunday evening will be strictly private. Preaching the annual sermon to the Monmouthshire Congregational Union at Newport, the Rev. J. Jones Vaughan, of Monmouth, said that ministers were called shepherds and pastors, but a, better metaphor would be lion tamers, for while they stood in the pulpit they trembled, kaowisg that around them were savage beasts, ready to spring upon them and rend asunder what they ta.ught. It was the greatest miracle in the world to keep a congregation together; they were so easily offended. The Congregational Church of Liandilo, of which the Rev. W. Davies is pastor, is establishing a high reputation for the munificence of its members. The church stands in the centre of an agricultural district, where the depression is keenly felt by all classes, and yet we find that in four successi ve Sundays, the church at Llandilo collected 100 guineas towards the new Llanebia Cbapel, X,10 for the Penrhyn quarrymen, L,10 for local purposes, and 100 guineas for the London- Missionary Society! This is April Fool's Day.
