NANTYMOEL InEVVS AND N UTES. A HARD CASE AT NANTYMOEL.—There is a person living at Nantymoel who was a personal friend of Mr. David Davies, LIandinam, personal at least in his younger days. I refer to the old man Woosnftm, who is now quite helpless with rheumatism. The old man has many tales to tell of the coal king, how they used to play together, and of the frequent thrashings he g" \"C and received from him. When fortune smiled on his former playmate Woosnian became one of his employees, and it is said that he has worked very hard too during his life. It was generally thought by all acquainted with these circumstances that. Mr. Davies would certainly have left a small pittance out of his boundless wealth which would suffice to keep the old man from privation. It had even got noised Ubio.id that 5s. a day had actually been left him, and when the truth was made known that he whom he cherished so much had forgotten hilU, the pOOl" olc1 nun felt it 1>:ee111y. Possibly if the son knew of the case something might be done yet. THE ILLNESS OF REV. W. JONES, M.A.—This reverend gentlemen has been h.id up with a severe cold, and on Sunday was unable to occupy the pulpit at Dinam. THE HUMANE TREATMENT OF A TEACHER HY A SCHOOL BOARD.—it is pretty well-known in Nantymoel that Miss Catherine Phillips, assistant mistress at the Wyndham School, has not been able to attend school for some months owing to the serious statelet her health, but it may not be so well known that when the matter was reported to the Board they very generously voted that her salary should continue. This must be gratifying to Miss Phillips who is thus above the necessity of accepting the charity of others, and the action redounds to the credit of a public body who can when occasion calls for it deal with their officials with praiseworthy consideration. A TEA MEETING was held at the Hope Mission Chapel on Monday. THE FARMERS AXD THEIR TROUBLES.—The outlook for the fanners is most depressing. The sum- mer is now completely gone, and there is no hope of getting in the remainder of the hay. One farmer in the neighbourhood is about to hold a sale of the stock knowing that he has not the means of providing for the cattle during the coming winter. ° THE SCIENCE CLASSES.—It is gratif3'ing to learn that a considerable number have enrolled taemseK-es as students in the Mathematic Classes, and it is to be hoped tuat this attempt at science teaching will be eminently successful, it would be well to ooint out that the first stage in this subject is well adanted to the neeos of iiiose intending* to sit for "mining certificates. 0 THE LLAXDYt-ODWG SCHOOL BOARD.—A meet- ing of the above board was held on Monday at the Dinam Vestry, when there were presoent" Mr. D. Evans (in the c-hnir). Messrs. Price, L. Griffiths, E". Griffiths. J. Wil.iams, J. Abel. E. Jones, and the lie- W. Gri.'Ilths. APPOINTMENT OF IXFAXT MISTRESS. — Miss Davies (trained at Swansea) was appointed mistress of the Infant Department at Craigrhivvglyn School at a salary of £50 per annum. Miss Davies is at present seriing Cmier the Merthyr Tyufii School Board. APPOINTMENT OF ATTENDANCE OFFICER — There were 23 applicants for this post, and the names were read over. Mr. Evans proposed that D. Williams, Nantymoel, be appointed. Air. L. Griffiths proposed George Jones, Mr. Price proposed Charles Thomas, Mr. E. Jones proposed Samuel Evans, the Rev. W. Griffiths proposed Moses Lewis, and Mr. J. Abel proposed William James. Two only of these propositions were seconded, viz., D. Williams and George Jones, and the result of the vote was five for Jones and three for Williams. Jones will begin his work in October at a salary of £55 a year. MR. D. PRICE AND HIS YOTK-An amusing cir- cumstance occurred in the course of the appointment of attendance officer. Mr. Price proposed Charles Thomas, then he seconded George Jones' appoint- ment, hoping in this way to get some one to second his motion, but his motion was not seconded and conse- quently fell through. Finally, when it came to v<Jt-ing Mr. Price lecorded his vote in favour of D. Williams, so that he.proposed one, seconded another, and finally voted for a fiird. Possibly Mr. Price had pledged himself to sup port each of the three candi- dates, and aciopte 1 this ingenious method of ^leasing them ail.
