JOTTfNGS BY THE WAY. It is interesting to note that local talent seemed to be to the fore in the band competition at Merthyr on Whit-Monday. The Mountain \sh Volunteer Band took a prize of £15, while the Aberdare Temperance Band came away with 12. The chairman of the Local Board of Health, showed a commendable spirit at the meecing on Friday week, in disapproving of a building that was at once inadequate and insignificant as a Post Office for such an important and populous town as Aberdare. If, at last, we are to have a better place-it seems almost too good to be true—let us by all means have one equal to our requirements. # # The eight young fellows who spent their valuable time, on Sunday afternoon last month, in the praiseworthy and refreshing occupation of damaging a notice-board belonging to the Great Western railway Company will, it is to be hoped, now seek sone other way of enjoying themselves. At all events, we don't think they will go at the notice-board again. It comes rather expensive, you know, to pay 5s each, damages, aud costs, for a harmless bit of fun like that. # The lad who was summoned at the police- court on Tuesday for stealing a half-sovereign from a shop-till seems to be a bright specimen of our rising youth. He ought to have lived in the days of Dick Turpin. To have such ex- perience in the art at the ago of twelve is not bad The worst of it is, that there is always a sequel to these littio tricks, and it is to be feared that young Mr Eynon will find that the Re- formatory is not a perfect haven of repose. # We wnre walking along the road on Sunday last when we noticed a young lady removing orange peel from the pavement with her umbrella. We remarked to her, with emotion, that she was a public benefactor, whereupon she said that she had had a few upsets herself through treading on orange peel, and that she thought it her duty to try to prevent others from moating with similar accidents. Now this young lady differed from a great many otners in being very sensible a.lcl thought- ful If everybody followed her example we should have much fewer accidents. But as it is to be feared that evorybody will not do so, we must fall back upon our old friends, the police, to see to this matter. We are really of opinion that they do not pay as much attention to it as they might. The pavements, of a Sunday, are literally covered with this abomin- able stuff. Surely some of those, who thus en- danger the lives of others, could be made to suffer for it j The writer of the letter which appeared in our columns last week was quite correct about the scarcity of gas-lamps in Elizabeth-street. For this very reason, however, it is a very favourite place of meeting with sweethearting couples. We therefore feel that our correspondent would be wanting in courtesy were he to push the matter any further. It is amusing to notice how many branches of trade one man goes in for now-a-days. You may go into some shops and, by merely ap- plying at different counters, obtain every article you may be in need of, from a grand piano down to a pound of sugar. It reminds us of the man in Cornwall who had a sign over his door-way, containing the following inscription — Benjamin Tremallock, boot and shoe .maker, blacksmith, barber, grocer and draper, rag and bone collector. All orders promptly attended to." It is a sad fact that Mr Tremallock, despite his energy, was not long in the trade before he came a bankrupt. Notwithstanding the miserable weather which we experienced on Whit-Monday, some fellows seemed to be spending a pretty jolly time of it. One man, who evidently was trying to make the best of the matter gave it out as his opinion, in a pretty loud voice, that The moon is out to- night, and the sun is shining bright." We don't know exactly what he meant by this rather extraordinary statement, but, at all events, it showed a praiseworthy disposition to be merry under adverse circumstances. # It is to be feared that the Conservative Club did not have a very happy time of it in their little trip to Pontneath-Yaughan. However, it will give them, and many others, an excellent excuse for getting up another outing before long. If Monday had been Tuesday, and Tuesday Mon- day, it would have suited many people a great deal better. CONTRIBUTED JOTTINGS. [Under this heading, we shall be pleased to insert any notes that our readers may choose to send in, provided they are not personal, and that with them are enclosed the writer's name and address.] Some young ladies are fond of displaying their vocal powers by shouting after young men who pass them in the street. The street leading to the new recreation ground" semed a very 1, happy hunting ground" for that purposS. Such conduct is unseemly for the gentle sex," but I trust they will aspire to something higher in future after receiving this gentle hint. V There are also some young ladies who are compelled to work overtime in connection with their occupation without receiving any remun eration for this extra labour." Now this is too utterly utter." Extra work should be accompanied by extra pay, I should think. In the Jottings of a previous issue I notice that a young lady had bogged the pardon of a lamp post which she had inadvertently walked against. Now, that was a foolish action but what I have to relate to you, Mr Editor, will I believe seem to be much more strange. A young lady of this town endeavoured to swallow a thimble; for what purpose I cannot imagine, unless it was to forco herself into notoriety by its being noised abroad that she had endeavour- ed to commit suicide by swallowing her trade mark. Young ladies seem to be most remark- ably foolish now-a-days.
ANNIVERSARY SERVICES. On Sunday last the annual anniversary services of Carmel English Baptist Chapel, which had been decorated for the occasion, were held at 11 a.m., 2.30 p.m., and 6 o'clock, when the Rev. J. B. Jenkins, of Crickhowell, preach- ed three Sermons from (1) Job 19 chapter, 28 verse (2) Mathew 14 chapter, 36 verse, (3) Psalm 73, 24 verse, iu a very impressive, thoroughly instructive, and plain-spoken manner to large, appreciative, and attentive audiences. The Choir rendered in a masterly style at intervals some hymns from the Sacred Songs and Solos. At 7.40 p.m., the Rev. W. Chalmers, of Glasgow, preached a temperance sermon from Thessalonians, the rev. gentleman being engag- ed under the auspices of the Sons of Tempei- ance Benefit Society, of which there are two lodges established in the town, viz:—"Cambrian Oak," held at the Cardiff Castle Coffee Hotel, and the "Hope of Aberdare," held at Carmel Vestry. The 30th Annual Session of the National Division was also held at Merthyr on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday last, which is the first time it has been held in Wales, a somewhat strange coincidence, as this year the celebration of the Welsh Temperance Jubilee takes place. On Monday following, the annual tea meeting and entertainment connected with the anniver- sary services took place, when a capital repast was partaken of by a great number, the management of the whole being confided to Mrs John Thomas, Clifton-street, and Mrs R. Lloyd, Whitcombe-street assisted by Messrs John Thomas, L. Hiley, Mrs Davies and Miss M. J. Cuatis. The tablet, which were tastefully de- corated with vases, stands oinowers, etc., were presided over by Mrs T. Jones, Miss Green, Mrs W. Thomas, Miss S. J. Thomas, Mrs and Miss Hayward, Mrs Thomas, Miss Cousins, Miss Evans, Mrs Owens Miss M. ihomas, Mrs Evans Miss P. Williams. Mrs Jones, Miss Lloyd, Mrs Mills, Mrs Griffiths, Mrs Thomas, Mrs Davies, Mrs and Miss Phelps. Miss Jones, Mrs Reeves, Mrs Lewiz, Mrs It.

Jones) whensthe following programme was gone through :-?75 hymn Sacred Songs and Solos, Choir recitation.

CONGREGATIONAL SINGING. We made some remarks in these columns I ast week, on the efforts that are being devoted, in some parts of the Principality, to the im- provement of the singing in public worship, and we think the matter of sufficient moment to merit some additional observations. There is no doubt but that, in too many cases, the state of this important part of our religious services is such that there is vast room for amend- ment. There are, essentially, two styles of singing to be found in our midst: and these we may venture to denominate as the Welsh and En ;lish styles. As for the former, with all its fervour and enthusiasm, it it is to be feared that its day is really and truly gone by The singing in the old Welsh Cymanfaoedd was such, that those who have nover heard it can hardly know what congregational singing, in the literal sense of the words, means. The Welsh fire, however, which existed in thosa diys. seems to have totally died out. and we c III never hope to reach such a pitch again. The other stylc)-the English with its refinement and cultivated t'-te. has yet to be attained. C xeqifntl. we Hi' as it were, "stuck" bjtvVoeii the two and therefore there is. as we a. vast roo ii fur .rfie'ldme .t- We must eithor go forward to the one or oack to the othor. W nich of these courses we shall pursue is a matter which opens a wide iield for thought o. discussion. if we decided to bring back among u-i the oil Welsh singing, we should no^'d larger chon s and a total use of thu Welsh language. If. or! thn other hand, we thought it better t,) emulate tn English, we should, it is to bo feared, have to give up our beuutitul, but heavy minor tunes, and adopt a lighter and brighter style. One thing is certain, as we are situated at present, either departure would be for the better. In too many instances our singing is nothing but a mere medley of time and sound. Take an illustration the instru- ment, if there be oue, starts the tune full two bars afterwards, the choir joins in yet another two bars, and the congregation add their yoices; the player of the instrument tries to keep up the time the congregation seem to be as assidously endeavouring to "drag behind"; the choir comes in somewhere half-way aud so it is throughout uthe whole hymn. This sort of thing, it must be admitted, makes it a pain and not a pleasure, to sing, and reduces the portion of Divine worship which is thus employed to, nothing less than buffoonery. What we want is neither grand tunes, nor choir- singing alone, but real CONGREGATIONAL SINGING, in which every member joins with soul, and heart, and voice." To bring this about, nights should be devoted to practice, not for the choir alone, but for the whole Congregation. If we want to keep up our religious strength in Wales, this matter must be attended to.
01 a I Jilt tell i g t n £ t. « "TUE RED DBAGON".—By way of an ex- amination of a passage in the late Thomas Stephens' Literature of the Kymry the June number of the Red Dragon will contain the first instalment of a paper by Mr James Harris on the alleged Massacre of the Welsh Bards by King Edward I The writer maintains that Stephens has hopelessly misunderstood his authorities and is generally, most inaccurate in his treatment of this and others Welsh subjects, historical and literary. CRICKET.—The first match of the Aberd&re Cricket Club took plaoe on Wednesday last against the Ferndale Cricket Club, who had the assistance of Pollard, the Llwynpia professional, and bowled very successfully for them. Had it not been for him the Ferndale Cricket Club would have fared very badly. The game re- sulted in a draw, very much in favour of Aber- dare, who, with eight wicket to fall, had only 16 runs to make. Rev. H E. Thursby astonished ttle spectators with some brilliant hitting, and had there been time would have no doubt made the runs necessary to win. Messrs Mornington and Green played very well. The fielding on both sides was exceedingly good, and some splendid catches were made by Messrs Morning- ton, Jeffries, and Dr Lewis for their respective sides. Jeffries played remarkably well, his bowling completely beat some of the Ferndale men. It is to be hoped that after beating the best team of the Rhondda Valley that the Aber- dare Cricket Club will pluck up courage and not allow any team to beat them this season. The next match will take place on Thursday, June 4th, on the Cricket Field. Appended is the score :— FERNDALE CRICKET CLUB. 1st Innings. 2nd Innings.

Pardoe in the chair. There were also present the Rev. It. T. Howell, Messrs. D. i>avies (Canon-street), J. W. McEwen, D. M. Itichards, D. Grier, D. Griffiths, Thos. Phillips, J. W. Prothero, D. James. flywel Cynon, and the General Secretary. A deputation from the committee having been appointed to wait npon Lord Aberdare, the Rev. It. T. Howell gave au account of the interview, which took place on the previous day. Plans of the pavilion, &c., were submitted to his lordship, who expressed his approval of tho same. A committee was appointed to make arrangements for the print- ing of the Eisteddfod programmes, &c. It was also decided to take steps to invite tenders for the erection of the pavilion without delay. Mr. D. Davies gave notice that at the next meeting he should move that an assistant to the general secretary be appointed. The meeting was ad- jourued until Friday. SCHOOL BOARD.- I'he Board met on Friday, the 22nd iust., when there were present Messrs. It. H. llhys (chairman), D. e. Davies, D. Davies (Canton House), W. Little, W. Charles, R. Llewellyn, D. Morgan, Revs. T Jones, B. y t, Evans, and W. James. The Schools Manage- ment Committee reported that they had had under consideration the suggestions contained in II M.^Inspector's reports as the the improve- ments required at several of the schools for the better convenience of the children, and they recommended that the Building Committee in- spect the schools under the Board. The re- port was adopted. A letter was read from the Department approving of the plans for the additions aud alterations required at the Cwm- aman Schoots, and sanctioning the loan of £ 1,800 towards carrying out the same, the amount to be repaid by instalments in thirty years. The Chairman moved that application be made to the Loan Commissioners to borrow the sum named. This was seconded by Mr. W. Charles ,and carried. The Chairman drew at- tention to the falling off in the attendance at the Llwydcoed School, with a view to reducing the staff and lessening the expenditure. There was no other business of public interest.
ABERDARE POLICE COURT. TUESDAY -(Before Bishop R. II. Rhys, and D. P. Davies, Esqs.) DBUNKENNESS.—Phillip Lewis was summoned for being drunk on the 23rd inst. P.O. D. Hughes said that at a quarter-past 12 o'clock, on Saturday night, he saw the defendant lying in Station-street, Aberdare. On picking him up he became very abusive and refused to go home. Fined os and costs, or seven days.- James Roberts was brought up under a warrant for a similar offence on the 22nd July last. Defendant presented a most dirty appearance and had evidently been a stranger to soap and water for many a day. P.C. Adams said that about a quarter-past 10, on Tuesday night, the 22nd July last, he saw defendant drunk and fighting with another man, in Cardiff-road, Mountain Ash. He separated them and their friends took them away. Mr Bishop: Where have you been ever since ? Defendant: Work- ing about. I get plenty of grub. Mr Bishop You don't do much in the washing line. I never saw such a dirty fellow. You will be fined os and costs, or seven days. The money not being forthcoming, he was taken down.- Joseph Phillips was summoned for being drunk and disorderly in Wind-street, Aberdare, on the 12th inst. P.C. D. Hughes said that about a quarter-past 6, on the evening in question, he saw the defendant near the Oak public- house, very drunk and challenging the land- lord to fight. The latter had rofused to supply him with beer. Fined 5s and costs, or seven days.—William Thomas and David Price were summoned for being drunk and disorderly in Station-road, Penrhiwceibr, on the 17th inst. P.C. L. Rees said that at 5.30, on Sunday after noon, he saw the defendants drunk and challenging each other to fight, surrounded by a crowd. They had been fighting before ho went on. Thomas was fined 10s and costs, and Price, who had been up before, was fined 15s and costs.-Patrick Burke was summoned for being drunk on Sunday, the 17th inst. P.C. J. B. Davies said that about 2 o'clock in the morning, he found defendant drunk in Whit- combe-street, sleeping on a window sill. lie woke him up, and he then became very abusive. The Bench said he had been up before, and it was of no use preaching to him on the evils of intemperance. He must pay a fine of 10s and costs, or fourteen days.-Daniel Lloyd was brought up under a warrant for being drunk and disorderly in Hirwain-road, Trecynon, on the 9th inst. Defendant having been fined 5s and costs only a fortnight previously, was now ordered to pay 15s and costs or twenty-one days. FURIOUS DRIVING,—Walter Davies, a boy of 13, and a youth named Frederick Mortimer were summoned for furiously driving a horse and trap each, on Sunday week. P.S. Cooko said that on the Sunday in question he saw the defendants driving milk carts down Harriet- street, trying to pass each other, Mortimer in front and the other trying to pass him. They did not stop till they got on the hill leading to Llwydcoed. Mr Rhys remarked that these milk carts were a common nuisance, and every- body was complaining of them. Mortimer said he did not beat the horse or gallop. Mr A. Howell said he appeared for the owner of the carts, Mr Whiting, and he hoped the Bench would deal as leniently with the defendants as possible, as he would have to pay the fine. Mortimer was fined 15s and costs, and Davies 5s and cosb. DRUNK ON LICENSED PREMISES. — David James and Morris Isaac were summoned for being drunk on licensed premises, on Sunday, the 17th inst., and Morgan Lewis was sum- moned for being found on licensed premises, having no right to be there. P.C. Gainblyn said that at 7 p.m., on Sunday evening, the 17th inst, he visited the Lamb public-house, Hir- wain, and there found Morgan Lewis (who gave a false name and address, calling himself David Evans), being supplied with beer. At 7.30 p.m., he visited the Mason's Arms and found Lewis there again in company with seven other men, two of them being the other defendants, who were very drunk. He asked Lewis what he was doing there, but he made no reply. He reminded him that he had seen him before at the Lamb. He then. called the landlady and asked wby Lewis was on the premises. She said that he knocked at the door and said he came from Cap Coch that she asked him if he had been supplied with refreshment within three miles, and he said "No." Witness told him that he had found him in two public- houses within a very short time, and he should report him. He then called the landlady's at- tention to the other two. who were drunk. She said that five or six of them came in together. The others were sober, and they only had a bottle of pop. Defendants lived at Aberaman. They were each fined 20s and costs, or twenty- one days in default. EXCISE PROSECUTION.-Alfred Whiting was summoned by the Supervisor of Excise for keeping a carriage without a license. Mr A. Howell. who appeared for defendant, asked for an adjournment on the ground that he was in communication with the authorities at Somerset House on the subject. He had also arranged with Mr Finucane, excise officer, at Aberdare, for an adjournment pending a reply from the commissioners, and ho was somewhat surprised to see Mr Hunting, superyisor, there to prooeed with the case. Mr Hunting said Mr Howell should have applied to him personally, and not to the commissioners, and he thought the case should be gone on with. It was ultimately de- cided to adjourn tha matter for a week, defend- ant to pay the costs of the day. SUNDAY AMUSEMENT.—William Williams, Thomas Thomas, David Davies, John Harries, j David Williams, Evan Evans, Morgan Morgan, and John Davies, youths, were summoned for damaging a notice board on the Dare branch of the Great Western Railway, on Sunday, 2bth April last. Mr Thos Phillips attended for all the defendants with the exception of Wm Williams. Mr Gustard, of Newport, prosecuted on behalf of the Railway Company. P.C. Cross said that at 6.30, on the evening in question, he was on duty at the Dare branch of the Great Western Railway, dressed in plain clothes, when he saw the whole of the defendants, and others with them, standing on the railway at the end of the Cwm viaduct. They were all throwing stones at a notice board, and there ap- peared to be a contest amongst them as to which should strike it oftenest. The board was split and damaged. P.O. Davies was with him at the time, and also saw all that occured. In cross-examination witness said he first saw the defendants when he was 1200 yards away, coming from the direction of the rflie range. He believed every one of the defendants threw stones, there being a wheelbarrowful under- neath the board. P.O. 1. Davies also gave corro- borative evidence. David Jones, inspector of the pernament way, living at Hirwain, said it was part of his duty to look after the notice boards. The value of a similiar board, when new was 4s. 6d. or as. The board had been up a year or two. Mr Gustard said he would be content to put the damage at anything over :1s. The Bench remarked that stone throwing was the bane of the neigbourhood. The railway company were not compelled to put up notice boards, but having done so they had a right to protection. Defendants were each fined os., and ordered to pay the damage and costs. HEAVY PENALTY FOR SELLING BEER WITH- OUT A LICENSE.—William Jones was summoned for selling beer at the Lamb and Flag, Aber- aman, without a license, on the 16th iust. It appeared that defendant recently applied to the court to have the license of the house transferred to him from Mrs Jnlia Vaughan, the former landlady, whom he had married, but the appli- oation was refused. Richard Vaughon (son of the landlady) said he went to the Lamb and Flag in company with his wife at 6 o'clock, on the evening of the 16th May. They had some beer there, and afterwards paid 3d. to defendant for a quart to take home with him. Richard Davies said he also called at the house at 7 o'clock, the same evening, and had two glass- es of beer, for which he paid 3d. David Thomas also deposed to having been suppied with a pint of beer, for which he paid at the time. P.C. Williams said he met Richard Vaughan leaving the inn with a bottle of beer. He took him back and spoke to Mrs. Vaughan about it. She tasted the beer and said it was not their beer. He was present in court on the transfer day, and heard the application made by defendant for a transfer, but it was refused. They were cautioned that night by Sergt. Cole not to sell any more beer. Several witnesses were called in defence, defendant protesting that he only supplied the men with pop. The Bench con- sidered the case proved, and imposed a fine of S10 and costs, or two months in default. The tine was paid. NEGLIGENT WORKMAN.—Thomas Jones and James Wood, furnaceman employed at the Dare Steel and Tin Works were summoned for neglecting their work on Monday night, the 11th inst., 95 each being claimed as damage. Mr W. D. Williams, wh appeared for the pro- secution, stated that in consequence of the de- fendants' absence the two mills were stopped and at least £ 10 would not cover the damage. David Rees, foreman at the works, proved that defendants were absent at 10 o'clock on the night in question, when they should have been at work, and he reported the matter to the manager. In defence, Jones alleged that ho was seized with cramp and was unable to go to work. In answer to a question from the Bench as to whether he got drunk, Wood replied that he would say nothing. The Bench accepted Jones's oxcuso, but fined Wood X5 and costs. The latter said he would go to quod rather than pay the money,. A DISHONEST URCHIN.—Thomas Eynon, a boy of 12, was charged with stealing a half sovereign from the till of the National Toa Company's shop, Oxford-street, Mountain Ash. William Richard Morgan, a a assistant, said that between 2 and 3 o'clock on the afternoon of the 19th inst, he left the shop for a few minutes, and on his return missed the money from the till. He afterwards gave information to the police. P.C. E. C. Jones said he arrested prisoner on suspicion. Prisoner, in answer to the charge said You will have to prove it," but at the police-station he afterwards said, I'll tell the truth. I stole the half sovereign and hid it in the wood." Witness subsequently found the coin, together with a shilling, in a small tin canister concealed under a stono. Inspector Thorney said the prisoner had been brought up before in March, 1882, for stealing oranges. In October, 1S8-I, he was convicted of stealing 30s from a till, for which he was fined 20s and also received six strokes with the birch rod. The Bench ordered him to be imprisoned for ten days and afterwards to be sent to a reformatory for four years.
SONS OF TEMPERANCE SPECIAL MEETINGS. On Tuesday evening last the Aberdare Tem- perance Brass Baud displayed themselves by escorting Mr W. Wightman, of London, Rev. D. S. Jones, of Merthyr, and various other delegates attending the Session of the National Division of the Som of Temperance Benefit Society held at Merthyr, to Siloa Ohopel, where the gentlemen alluded to were announced to give temperance lectures in English and Welsh. Those gentlemen on arriving at Abernant formed into procession and on reaching the Iron Bridge were met by the before men- tioned band, who, placing themselves in front, played some lively tunes until they reached their destination. After singing and prayer the Chairman (Rev. E. Williams) celled upon Brother W. Wightman to address the meeting. In his discourse Mr Wightman in a very practical, logical, and in- structive manner dwelt upon the benefits aris- ing from the adoption of temperance principles, coupled with those of the Christian profession— introducing humour, anecdote, and facts in support of his arguments. The Rev. D. C. Jones was next called npon to speak in Welsh. He advised his countrymen to despise and restrain from imbibing alcohol, which, he said, was unfit for human consumption. God had not created it; it was a miserable, useless and injurious compound of man's manufacture, which upon being imbibed transformed the partaker into a most degraded and miserable being, to say nothing of other consequences. Alcohol, he further observed, is not requisite for sustenance, as it does not transform or form material for blood, consequently it does not con- stitute any addition to our muscular, physical, or mental powers, but passes from the body in the same form as it entered save doing the injury that is evident in the person through whose system the unnatural admixture passes. Brother W. Chalmers next spoke in a witty and satirical manner, flavoured with the Scotch accent, on the same subject, and considerably enlivened the sparse but appreciative audience, after which votes of thanks to the chairman for presiding, and to the church for the loan of the edifice were passed and the meeting terminated with prayer by the chairman. On leaving the audience were presented with handbills, etc., containing information respect- ing the Order."
ABERDARE LOCAL BOARD OF HEALTH. The bi-monthly meeting of the above board was hold on Friday, the 22nd inst., when there were present Messrs R. H. Rhys (chairman), D. P. Davies, W. Little, E. M. Hann, D. Davies (Canton House), and D. Davies (Canon-street). The minutes of the previous meeting were read and confirmed. MEDICAL OFFICER'S REPORT. The Medical Officer reported 5 fresh cases of scarlet fever, being a decrease of 2 as compared with last report, and 2 deaths. Also 51 cases of measles, being an increase "of 11 over last report, and one death. The cases of measles were said to be of a mild type. SURVEYOR'S REPORT. The following was read: Surveyor's Office, Town Hall, Aberdare, May 21st, 1885. Gentlemen,—Outfall Sewer.-I beg to sub- mit the accompanying plan, which I have had prepared, showing an automatic arrangemant for ensuring the constant flushing of the outfall sewer during dry and hot weather, by a diver- sion of a certain quantity of water from the river Cynon into the sewer at its upper ex- tremity. The dilution of the sewage in the outfall sewer during dry weather, more especially when dry weather is accompanied by heat, would in my opinion be a great advantage. It would secure a more rapid flow of the sewago in a less concentrated form with consequent greater free- dom from noxious gases arising therefrom, and the land provided for the purification of the sewage would be benefited by an increaso in the quantity of water over thejnormal summer flow when it most required it. Should the Board think proper to adopt the arrangement, I estimate the cost at £ 17 10s and would include the inlet and outlet pipes and a cast iron strainer. Nuisances.—Reports on the several nuisances reported by the Inspector, and requiring for their abatement the construction of new drains have be6n submitted, and notices duly served upon the owners and occupiers. Building Plans.—I have received the follow- ing buildiug plans, which I bog to recommend should be approved, viz., From Francis Free- ling, a new post office in Commercial-place on the site of the present No. 17. From John Thomas, additions in rear of No 64, Mill-street, Trecynon. Private Drainage.—I have received plans of private drains for the following houses, and beg to recommend that the same be approved, viz., Nos. 10, 51 and 52, Mill-street, and 59 High- street. Number of houses approved as above, 4; number of houses previously approved 4710; total number of houses approved 4714.— I have the honour to remain, gentlemen, your obedient servant, T. LL. EDWARDS, OUTFALL SEWER. The Chairman thought the Surveyor's recom- mendation with regard to the above a desirable improvement, and moved its adoption, which was carried. Mr D. P. Davies inquired whether there was any arrangement for flushing the sewers in town, Some of them appeared to him to be very offensive, especially the one near the Victoria Inn during dry weather. The Surveyor said there was but what they really wanted was two gangs of men in the summer. At present a man went round con- stantly. The Chairman I think it ought to be done at night. Is there a lamp near ? The Surveyor There will be a lamp almost closo by. We do the flushing the first thing in the morning, so that it does not obstruct the traffic. PROPOSED NKW POST OFFICE. The Chairman remarked that the plan of the new Post Office had been brought under his notice that morning. There was a water-closet in the centre of the building, which he thought most objectionable, and he considered the pre- mises altogether most unsuitable. Such a building should be more capacious and better suited to the requirements of the district. He therefore begged to move that the plan be rejected. Mr D. Davies (Canon-street) seconded the motion, and it was agreed to. The Chairman added that it appeared to him the postal authorities wanted something cheap. He begged to move that a representation be made to the Postmaster-General drawing atten- tion to the fact that, even if the sanitary ar- rangements were satisfactory, the building was wholly inadequate to meet the requirements of so populous a place as Aberdare. The building was only 21 feet wide, out of which it was pro- posed to take 6 feet for a:passage, leaving only ] 5 feet for the public. He thought it a disgrace to the Government that they should approve of such a plan. Mr W. Little seconded the resolution, and it was carried. BICYCLES IN THE PARK. The Clerk intimated that he had forwarded to the Charity Commissioners the resolution with regard to the regulation of bicycles in the Park, and a reply had come to hand to the effect that the matter would receive attention in due course THE LIGHTING OF THE DISTRICT. The Chairman said the time had now arrived when they should determine where the new lamps and brackets should be placed-how many in the outlying districts and how many in the town. He begged to move that the Board adjourn till Friday, the 29th inst., when Mr Edwards would report his views on the subject, The Board might afterwards go over the district in conveyances to see and confirm or amend Mr Edwards's suggestions. The new contract with the Gas Company would come into operation on the 1st of July, and he be- lieved they were anxious to proceed with the fittings for the new lamp-posts. Mr Edwards had submitted a draft plan to him, in which it was paoposed to remove a. great many of the present lamps, and if the Board agreed to that they could be removed at once. Mr Davies (Canon-street) seconded the motion, and it was carried. A COMPLAINT. Mr Butterworth, 29, Seymour-street, appear- before the Board and asked that a stop might be put to the practice of shaking carpets, &C., in the street. The matter was referred to the Surveyor. The Board then separated.
Sistot JitteKi0eitce. I ♦ MOUNTAIN ASH. FATAL ACCIDENT.-On Saturday last, as a man named John Davies was walking down the George Pit incline, Cwmpennar, he was over- taken by two trucks of coal. It is stated that, hearing them coming, he turned aside to avoid them, but, instead of doing so, put himself in their way. They consequently passed over him, killing him, and mangling his body. Deceased, who was 63 years of age, lived at 20, Com- mercial-street, was by trade a foreman plate- layer, and had a gang of men employed at the time on the above incline.

BREACH OF THE SUNDAY CLOSING ACT.- Richard Richards, landlord of the Salutation beer-house, Plymouth-street, Merthyr, was summoned, before Mr J. Bishop and Mr J. Roberts, at the police-court, on Saturday last, for keeping his house open for the sale of beer on the preceding Sunday. M. J. Plews (Simons and Plews) appeared for the defence. Defend- ant was fined 20s and costs, and his license was ordered to be endorsed. ASSAULTING A POLICE-CONSTABLE. — John Lewis, a collier, living at Deri was summoned for being drunk and disorderly, and assaulting P.C. Charles Jenkins, at Dori, on the 16th inst. Defendant was fined 20s. and costs. BAND CONTEST IN PENDARREN PARK.— The miserably wet weather which prevailed throughout Monday operated very prejudically upon the influx of visitors, and hence the band contests got up by tho ten men of Merthyr," which wore held in Pendarren Park, and which constituted the chief attraction offered in the town to those who sought rational entertain- ment, were not favoured with such patronage as the enterprise of the public spirited promoters really deserved. The principal competition was for brass bands open to all England, for the best rendering of Lucia di Lammermoor." There were eleven entries, but the following bands were all that put in an appearance :—The Farnworih Old (Barnes) Band, North of Eng- land, conductor, Mr E. Swift; Mountain Ash Volunteer Band, conductor, Mr Robert Shaw Aberaman Brass Band, conductor, Mr James Prestwood; Irwell Bank Band, Stoneclough, Manchester, conductor, Mr J. Gladney; New- town (North Wales) Brass Band, conductor, Mr W. P. Phillips; Cymmer Colliery Brass Band. conductor, Mr R. Martyn. Air Chas. Godfrey, of the Royal'Horse Guards, was the adjudicator. The lrwell Bank Band, which took principal honours last year, was adjudged the winner of the first prize of £30; the Moun- tain Ash obtained the second of X15 the Farn- worth the third of £ 10 the fourth of X,5 going to the Cymmer. The other competition was for fife and drum bands for the best rendering of Wallace's fantasia, "Maritana." Mr J. Gladney of the Irwell Bank Brass Band adjudicated.

Edmunds. The Hafod was awarded the first prize of £ 10 the Pendarren securing the second of £ 3 whilst the third of JE2, fell to the Aberdare band. There were two foot races at the Morlais Castle Running Grounds. One was 120 yards for X5 a side between Frank Williams and Thomas Thomas of Merthyr, which was won by the latter and the other 110 yards for a similar stake betweenl W. Davies, Aberdare, and John Owens, Trecynon, wherein Davies, who receiv- ed 3 yards start, came in first. ALLEGED WOUNDING AT DOWLAJS.—Michael Sullivan was charged, at the police-court on Saturday last, with unlawfully wounding Dennis Sullivan. The two men, who are en- gaged at the Dowlais works, had a dispute about something, the alleged result being that the defendant struck the complainant in the face, with a piece of iron, fracturing his jaw. As the prosecutor was not able to be present, the case was adjourned for a week. TEMPERANCE MEETINGS.—The anuual meet- ings of tho national|division|of the Sons of lem- porance were held at Merthyr on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, more than a hundred delegates were elected to attend, and several questions of importance were discussed. This is the first time that the conference has ever boon held in the principality and its is also a significant fact that this year is the jubilee of the temperance cause in Wales. RHONDDA VALLEY. FUNERAL OF A LATE INHABITANT.—The remains of Mrs Evans, the deceased wife of Mr Evan Evans, Park-place, Cardiff, and late of the Pencelly Hotel, Troorky, were, on Saturday afternoon last, brought by train from Cardiff, and interred in Treorky cemetary.

Sir,—Concerning a remark which appeared in your "Jottings by the Way" with regard to a young lady standing on a corner as 0 I was occupying that position on the night named, and as I met a gentleman friend with whom I walked away, I cannot but conclude that I am the young lady referred to. Now, sir, in the first place, I would ask your correspondent to be a little less personal, and in the second, to be a little more accurate. I was waiting for no "young man." Neither did I, '^becoming im- 0 patient at his tardiness, go off with another fellow." I was merely standing for a few min- utes at the corner- which, it seems, 3an't be done now-a-days, without provoking remarks from such as your correspondent. Things have surely come to a hard pass if everybody's con- duct is going to be remarked upon. Asking the favour of the insertson of these few lines.-I am, &c ALICE. Aberdare, May 20th 1885. [We are extremely sorry that our correspon- dent should have made such a mistake. We do not see, however, that we can do anything in the matter. If our correspondent has an eye for the young ladies, and likes to enlarge upon their doings, it is to be feared that it is more than we, or anyone else can do, to place a re- straint upon him.-Ed.
