NANTYMOEL NEWS AND NOTES. A STOP-DAY A/THE OCEAN COLLIERY. —Last Saturday the colliery was stopped, and during the week several pits in the Rhondda were idle for a few days. A daily paper noted this and feared that there was a turn convng in the tide of pros- perity. This is not the explanation. Durino- the severe gales of the last fortnight ships have not been able to leave and enter Cardiff and Barry, and the want of tonnage occasioned the stop. The reputation of the South Wales coal will very likely be in great demand for a long time to come. OUR-DOOR PAUPERS OF THE OGMORE. — It is true that, whereas in Bridgend and Cow- bridge 2s. 6d. week per child is allowed in out- door relief, the allowance made to children here is only Is. 6d. If there should be a difference it oui-ht to be the other way about. It is more ex- pensive living in these mining districts than in agricultural neighbourhoods, and the rates come pretty heavily too from the former quarter A TREAT IN STORE FOR I.OVERS OF MUSIC. —The Alpine Choir arc about to pay a return visit to Nantymoel, and will be certain to be a musical treat. One of the vocalists took part in Doctor Parry's opera. The Baptists are very noted for the enterprise they display in providing healthy amusement, and we are indebted to them for the best concerts held in the place. These ventures pay and deserve to. QUEEN'S SCHOLARSHIP EXAMINATION.—On the female list just issued the names of Miss Agnes Evans and Miss Gertie Adams appears as having passed. a THE FIREWORKS' NUISANCE.—The streets are lively with squibs, rockets, and wheels, and there was an exciting chase after some boys up Commercial-street. The policeman almost caught them, but the boys, turning the corner up Station- road, got clear away. We wish the stern represen- tative of the law more luck the next time. BURSTING OF A STEAM PIPE.—A steam pipe at the Wyndham burst last Saturday night, and made a terrific roar. The people were startled, but were glad to hear that no one was injured.
