OUR POST OFFICE. We were showing a gentleman friend through the town some time ago. We pointed out to him with considerable pride, such buildings as St. Elran's Church, the Temperance Hall, and the National Bank ot Wales. He expressed a suitable amount of admiration of these, but suddenly damped our ardour by asking where was the post office. We were then standing in Canon-street. Oh," said we, the er-er-post- office is er-er-down there." Down where ?" he- interrogated. Down there," we repeated, waving our hand vaguely in its direction. "I can't see it," declared he. No, very probably you can't," said we. He proposed that we shoald go and inspect it. No," said we let's go up to the public park." But in vain did we expatiate on the beauties of the latter place. He wanted to see the post office, and to the post oSee he would go. So, with no inconsiderable show of reluctance, we conducted him towards Commercial-place and pointed it out to him. His conduct at this juncture became very ex- traordinary. He suddenly turned round on his heel, uttered these four expressive words, '1 Well, I am blowed," and began to walk rapidly away. We followed him disconsolately, pondering on the fallacy of the whatever is, C, j is right" theory, and hoping that something 0 would shortly be done with a view to trans- forming that miserable little hole, wherein is i-fcrtrosacted the postal business of our town, into something that we should not be ashamed to own. And it has been done; but it has not been done well; and rather than accept it in this slip-shod manner, our local board have refused to sanction it. The plans for the PROPOSED NEW POST OFFICE did not represent a building such as we ought to possess The arrangements were poor the accommodation was inadequate; the whole construction was unworthy of our town and the gentlemen who represent us cannot be thanked too heartily for the unanimous manner in which they repudiated such half measures. It is for us to give them every support in our power. We have borne this standing disgrace to our town long onough -too long. It is now full time, not only to have the matter attended to, but to have it attended to in a proper manner and we take it that we shall not be behind hand in adding our voices to those of our local board in a way;that will leave no doubt of our feelings on the matter.
Sotal JixttUiflnu*. BICYCLE ACCIDENT.—On Monday afternoon last, opposite the Public Offices at the top of Canon-street, a bicyclist collided with another coming in an opposite direction, which resulted in a spill. They met unexpectedly on turnicg the corner, and as both were travelling at a good speed in the excitement of the moment both turn ed to the right side, the consequence was that the small wheel of one of the cyclists collided with the large wheel of the other and resulted in a bent handlebar of one machine and the left crank of the other met with the same fate. COMMERCIAL FAILURES. — According to Ktmp's Mercantile Gazette, the number of Failures in England and Wales gazetted during the five weeks ending Saturday, May 30th was 42G. The number in the corresponding fiive weeks of lust year was 21) showing an increase of 128, being a net increase, in 1885, to date, of 121. The number of Bills of Sale published in England and Wales for the five weeks ending Satnrday, May 30th, was- 1,295. The number in the corresponding five weeks of last year was L208, showing an iucrease of 87, being a net .increase, 1885, to date, of 124. BOARD OF GUARDIANS.—The usual meeting took place at Merthyr on Saturday last, Mr R. H. Rhys presiding. — The Chairman having brought forward a motion to the effect that in future the school attendance committee should hold its meetings at Aberdare, instead of at Hirwain, as had hitherto been the case. The object of desiring a transfer WAS that all appli- cations should come before a constantly varying body of guardians.—A lengthy discussion took place on the subject. On being put to the vote, the motion was carrie 1 by a majority of 3, 14 voting for it, and 11 against. —This was all the business of public interest. SHOOTING MATCH.—On Saturday afternoon last, a competition took place between married and single members of the Aberdare Shooting Club. The number on each side was seven, the ranges being 200 and 600 yards, with seven shots at each. Appended is the score: MARRIED SINGLE Capt TUos. Phillips 55 Sergt. W. Oxenhum i5 Col-3ergt E.

There were over 8,000 miners represented, and the following resolutions (of which copies of those in reference to the Inter- mediate Education bill were ordered to be sent, by Mr D. vl organ, the agent, to Mr Gladstone, Mr Mundella, and the members for the borough of Merthyr) were passed :—While this meetiug highly appreciates the efforts of her Majesty's Government to fulfil the educational wants of the Welsh people by introducing the Inter- mediate Education Bill, yet they must express their disappioval of the clauses involving the powor to the county magistrates toselect members on the managinglcommlttee and also to the chair menjof the school boards. They believe that this mode of election is quite inconsistent with the spirit of the newly-passed People Representation Act; and this meeting is of the opinion that the selection of members for the county inter- mediate education committee should be left in the hands of the members of the school boards excepting the actual members of Parliament for Wales. That this meeting disapproves of the conscience cause in the bill, inasmuch as it in- volves an element of discord between the different denominations. That this meeting wishes to express its voice in favour of teaching the Welsh language in the elementary schools of Wales. ROYAL NATIONAL ErsTEDDFOD. —The Executive Committee met on Tuesday evening, at the Eisteddfod offices, the Vicar of Aberdare presiding. I here were also present the Hev. R. T. Howell, Messrs Thos. Phillips, D. M. Richards, J. W. MoEweti, Roderick, Reea Evans, H. Lewis, J. C. Fairbairn, E. Arnott, D. Grier, J. Griffiths, D. James, and the General Secretary. A letter was read Irom the Rev. R. T. Howell accepting the post of: conductor of the Kisteddfod on one of the meeting days. A similar letter was also received from the Rev. B. Hvarns. Mr Thos. Phillips drew attention to the fact that the work of the secretary was accumulating very rapidly, and thought the time had arrived when some assistance should be rendered to Mr Lewis. He therefore proposed that an additional secretary be appointed; and as Hywel Cynon had taken a prominent part in starting the movement, he proposed that Hywel Cynon receive the ^appointment. Mr Rees Evans seconded the proposition. Rev. R. T. Howell suggested that the salary be X2 per week. Mr Phillips assented to add this to the resolution, remarking that whoever would be appointed must devote the whole of his time to the work. The Chairman observed that the two secretaries must decide amongst themselves as to what part of the duties they would under- take. Considerable diecussion ensued as to whether the whole of tne pavilion should be boarded under foot. It was ultimately decided that the first and second seats only should be boarded. The question of lighting the pavilion was olso discussed and it was decided to refer the matter to the pavilion committee, Mr Frame and Mr Harrison (Bwllfa) were elected members of the latter committee. Mr D. James alluded to the assiduous manner in which the Rev. R. T. Howell had assisted in various ways in promoting the success of the Eisteddfod, and suggested that thut gentleman be appointed Honorary Secretary. MrJ. Griffiths proposed that the suggestion be adopted. This was seconded by Mr McEwen and carried unani- mously. The proceedings then terminated. THE ABERDARE ^MINISTERS' UNION—.The ministers of all denominations in Aberdare meet on the first Tuesday in each month from October to June for prayer, the reading of papers, and the discussion of various subjects relating to their solemn vocation. The meet- ings were adjourned on Tuesday last to the first Tuesday in October next. Thanks were given to the Rev. Mr Jones, Carmel, Trecynon, the retiring chairman, and to the Rev. R. Morgan, Commercial-place, for the efficient manner in which they had discharged their duties. The Rev. R. T. Howell, of the Tabernacle, was unanimously elected chairman, and the Rev. Thos. Jones, Carmel Baptist minister consented to read a paper at the first meeting on The place and work of the Christian Minister." FUNERAL OERMON.—On Sunday evening last at Carmel English Baptist Chapel the funeral sermon of Miss E. Thomas, late a member of the congregation, was preached by the pastor, the Rev. T. Jones. The preacher took for his text Ecclessastics i. 12. (which verse was chosen by the deceased young lady with the earnest hope that it would become a means of spiritual benefit to the young people who might hear it enlarged upon.) During the sermon the preacher forcibly exhorted the young people before him to perform the duties enforced upon them by the sacred volume and now brought to their notice in so special a manner. Special hymns were also sung, viz Nos, 9 and and 35 of CI Sacred Songs and Solos," which were also chosen by the deceased. SAKER BROS. & WALTER MAPPIN'S FESTIVITY COMPANY.—On Monday, Tuesday, and Wed- nesday last the above Company gave three renderings of their novel.entertainment at the Temperance Hall. The proceedings opened by an Overture on the Pianoforte by Mr G. T. Jones, who rattled the ivories in an energetic manner. MissjAmina Fedora then appeared and displayed her vocal powers by singing a song in a somewhat restrained manner. On her re- appearance, however, she seemed more at home, the audience shewing their approval by cheer- ing vociferously. Mr Walter Mappin next pre- sented himself. His vocal efforts, together with his humorous and pathetic illustrations, in his rendering of "A Boy's best friend is his mother," were appreciated. He also made a decided hit in his delineation of a champion walking gentleman (Weston.) Messrs Sheridau and tJcanlau afterwards appeared in a humorous Irish character sketch, which elicited roars of laughter while their clog dancing drew forth marks of approval, their humorous modes of entrance and exit being veiy droll. Mr H. Haynes came next and rendered a national song in tne character of a "Middy" very effec- tively, which elicted an encore. The concluding section of the programme consisted of a comic singing act by the SakertBros, "Nancy Brown," which must be seen to be fully appreciated. The shoe dancing of the Brothers was remark- ably clever and evoked no little praise, their witticisms drew forth peals of laughter especially the commedion "What relation would I be were to marry your divorced wife?" Answer, "Why, her;step-husband." Then the intricate gyrations in which they placed their seemingly India rubber bodies, met with marked approval from the audience. In short the ^aker Bros. are a couple of talented artistes, their mirth provok- ing actions and humorous gesticulations and singing being of a high order.
JOTTINGS BY THE WAY. The Aberaman Brass Band played an ex- cellent selection of music in the Public Park, on Thursday afternoon last, much to the enjoy- ment of a large crowd of listeners. « We notice that men are busily engaged in laying down gas-pipes this side of Cap l'och for the purpose of taking gas to that village for the first time. We understand that the work will be completed during the course of the present week. We need hardly point out what a boon this will bo to the inhabitants of this place, and how they ought to appreciate the improvements thus effected in their behalf. The mains have already been laid along the Cwmbach road. It is, perhaps, not generally known that the pipes for the supply of the latter place were formerly laid across the valley, direct from the works. These, however, will now be taken up, and the new ones used in their stead. We are under the impression that Cwmdare i,4 also to be favoured with a supply of gas. Mr Yeo's contention, at the meeting of the Mountain Ash Local Board, on Monday last, that his Company was not at present fairly re- presented on the Board, was a very fair one. It stands to reason that when a gentleman has severed his connection with a firm, he has ceased to represent them. The lad John Evans, who was summoned at the police-court on Tuesday, for stealing fire- wood, is another bright specimen of our future men. It seems that he has been a companion of young Mr Eynon, who was redered conspicuous at last week's court. It is to be persumed that both these young gentlemen have a similar turn of mind; and if John Evans is not careful, their companionship will probably continue- in a Reformatory. # ♦ There is a scientific theory abroad that when persons have been drinking a little to freely some curious changes takes place in their powers of sight and sense. Thus, one man be- comes two one light becomes twenty every- body else is drunk; while the afflicted person is quite sure that he or she is perfectly sober all the street-doors become marvellously alike, making it necessary that the knockers of every one of them should be vigorously applied before the right door can be found; and so on. # A woman, who had reached this state, amply verified Ithe scientific theory above mentioned on Monday night by taking hold of her child by the leg, which she mistook for its arm. This was very inconvenient for the child, inasmuch a,, if persisted in, it would necessitate walking on one arm and one leg. It is a matter of wonder to us as to whether the new price lists, which the Licensed Victuallers have just issued, pending the in- creased duty upon spirits and beer, will make any difference in the consumption of those articles. It will be almost a pity if they will, because, as Dick Swiveller said, it will almost ruin the m&kers of pewter pots, pints, and glasses. There are many, however, who will not look at it in the same compassionate light as did Mr Swiveller. =II: I The delightful change which has taken place in the weather must be a source of great satis- faction to everybody. As the farmers put it, the weather-clerk has so far been very unkind. He has taken away at least one month from our summer and put it on to the winter, which we now trust has passed away. Most of our con- tractors and agriculturists have, up to the pre- sent, been forced to give hay to their horses and cattle, when, for the last month, they ought to have been able to graze them. We actually saw, on Tuesday morning last, some plants which had come into full blossom since the preceding Saturday; and this in a bleak and sterile locality. The crops, however, are in a sadly backward condition, and it will doubtless take all the warmth of the sun of the summer, which has yet to come, to bring them up to anything approaching what they would have been if we had experienced more genial weather. It is asserted that the cold winds from which we have been suffering are entirely due to the presence, in the Atlantic Ocean, of icebergs of an almost unprecedented size. Some of them, the report goes, are one thousand feet high, and only just beginning to melt. When we reflect that this is a size equal to some of our moun- tains, it does not surprise us that the weather has been so very cold. The wonder is that we have not had heavy frosts. 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 persona), and that with them are enclosed the writer's name and address.] One of the gentlemen that blows a horn in following his vocation, and who will accept all your cast off clothing from your hat down to your boots, the other.day had, one of the wheels of his useful vehicle loosened and in danger of becoming detached, causing great damage by precipitating the miscellaneous contents upon the ground, to the amusement of the by- standers. A tradesman in the provision line opposite whose place of business the mishap occurred, who is of a mechanical turn of mind, and wishing to act the part of the good Samaritan, proferred his services with a view of replacing the wheel but he was repulsed very snappishly in the first instance. Upon second thought however, his :aid was accepted by the gentleman in question. What an ill-favoured mode of accepting kindness and help, offered gratuitously. Mr D. P. Davies deserves to be thanked for the commendable manner in which he brought into prominence the necessity of a more systematic method of flushing the sewers of the town; but from a perusal of your report it would :appear that the matter did not receive that consideration at the hands of the Board which it deserved, having regard to its practical importance. The obnoxious effluvia" emitted by the sewer in Canon-street on Satur- day last was the:common topic of conversation among the public, and, with the approaching warm weather and probable overcrowding which wll be occasioned by the forth- coming large local gatherings, it is apparent that unless something be done to abate the nuisance, disastrious results must follow. The burdens of lacal ratepayers are surely sufficiently heavy to justify them in pro. testing against,a continuance of the nuisance. and it is most unjust that the public should have their health jeopardised by the culpable negligence of those whose duty it is to attend to the matter. Let us hope that our well-paid officials will at once do what is necessary to put an end to this offensive phenomena. Are we under any obligation to invite disease ? # A certain young lady, the other evening, (ac- cording to her version), in her haste to be in time for service in Chapel, collided with a little child, knocking it over, and had not the "Christian feeling or good nature to wait to replace the poor little thing upon its feet, or even to enquire after its welfare, but hurried on to her destination, which, perhaps, was not the place mentioned. Some young ladies (at any rate who wish to be considered senate very foud of resorting to the corner of one of our squares, at the lower end of one of our streets named after an an ecclesi- astical dignitary, for the purpose of gossiping and passing remarks upon any young man who may happen to go by. Such conduct to say the least is very unseemly. It would also be more to their credit were they to envelope their upper extremity with some suitable headgear. I hope this hint will bo accepted favourably and acted upon.
ABERDARE POLICE COURT. TUESDAY—(Before .I. Bishop R. Rhys, and D. P. Davies, JEsqs.) DRUNK AND ASSAULTING THE POLICE.— Henry Probyn, labourer, was charged with be- ing druuk whilst in charge of a horse, and also with assaulting the police. P.S. Cole said that about 8 o'clock, on Monday night, he was on duty at Cardiff-road, Aboraman, in company with P.C. Davies. Near the turnpike gate de- fendant, who was drunk, passed them on horse- back. After proceeding a short distance he fell off the horse's back. Witness told him he was not in a fit state to have charge of a horse and asked him to come to Aberdare. After proceed- ing about 50 yards, he struck witness with a stick. Witness drew him off the horse, and he again struck witness in the nose and mcuth. He was locked up. Mr Bishop said it was a very dangerous thing to the public for a drunken man to be in charge of a horse, and fined de- fendant 10s. for that offence, and 15s. and costs for the assault. DRUNKENNESS.—William Lewis (for whom his wife appeared) was summoned for being helplessly drunk in Canon-street, on the 23rd ult. P.S. T. Evans proved the case, and de. fendant was fined 7s 6d and costs, or ten days.- John Bowen was summoned for being drunk in Bwllfa-road, on Sunday week, and fined 5s and costs, or seven days.—Thomas Harris was sum- moned for being drunk and disorderly on the 26th ult., in Cardiff-street, Aberdare, and fined 20s. and costs, or a month in default. P.S. T. Evans gave evidence.—James Ryan was sum- moned for a similar offence in Cardiff-road, Mountain Ash, on the 19th ult. P.C. Coombs found him at 5 p.m. drunk and challenging to fight. He remained for some time before his friends took him away. Fined 5s and costs, or seven days.—William Hopkins and John Lewis were summoned for a similar offence in Glan- aman-road, Cwmaman, on the 19th ult. P.C. Whitney gave evidence. The Bench did not consider the case proved to their satisfaction, and they were discharged. OBSTRUCTING THE IHOROUGHFARE.—-Michael Conolly and David Meredith were summoned for obstructing Cardiff-street, Aberdare, on the 25th ult. P.C. J. B. Davies found defendants fighting in the street with a large crowd arouad. Meredith ran away. The other man complain- ed that Meredith struck him. Conolly said he was struck without any provocation, and he was only acting in self-defence when the con- stable came up. Conolly was discharged, while Meredith was fined as and costs. REFUSING TO QUIT.David Discoll was summoned for being drunk and refusing to quit the Creselly Inn, Mountain Ash, on the 19th ult. P.C. Coombs said that at 5.30 p.rn, he was called to the public house to turn defendant out. He refused to go on being requested to do so. Defendant was in drink. The landlord, Wm. Edwards, said defendant came in drunk and wanted beer, but he refnsed to supply him. He became very abusive and had to be put out by force. The Bench said the landlord behaved very properly and must be protected under such circumstances. Defendant was fined 158 and costs, or twenty-one days. STEALING FIREWOOD. —T anesm Hughes, who did not appear, and John Evans, a lad of 12 or 13, were charged with stealing firewood, value 2d., the property of John £ Nixon and others. P.C. Reed said that on the ISthult. he saw the boys leave the colliery yard with twelve blocks of firewood under their arms. When they saw him they threw the wood down and ran away. Witness said Evans was a companion to the lad Eynon who was sent to a reformatory a fort- night ago. The Bench remarked that Evans had already been flogged three times and they hardly knew what to do with him. If he came there again he would be sent to the reformatory. He was fined 10s, or seven days in default. ALLEGED POACHING.—John fowell was summoned for trepass in pursuit ot game. P.C. Whitney said that on the 22nd ult., he saw de- fendant on the side of Aberaman mountain with a greyhound. Saw the dog take hold of two lambs on the hind part. Defendant called the dog in, and begged of witness to say nothing about it. Mr Rhys advised defendant to get rid of the dog or he would probably get into trouble. The Bench, considering there was no evidence that defendant was in pursuit of game, dismissed him. AFFILIATION.—Thomas Thomas, farm labourer, appeared to an adjourned summons charging him with being the father of the illegitimate child of Sarah Ann Davies, servant at Nant- madarn farm, near Penderyn. Mr. D. James (in the absence of Mr Thos. Phillips),prosecuted. Two witnesses were called for the complainant, both of whom testified to seeing the parties together on various occasions. The Bench made an order upon defendant to contribute 2s. per week and the usual costs. AGGRAVATED ASSAULT.—Johanna Williams, a middle aged woman, was summoned for assault- ting James Williams, at Mountain Ash, on the 25th ult. Complainant alleged that his sister passed up Oxford-street, on the morning in question, when defendant came out and called her names. He (witness) was a short distance behind, and on his remonstrating with defend- ant for molesting his sister, she said, "Take that, squint," at the same time throwing a basinful of water over him. She afterwards used very bad language. Mrs Whitmarsh and Frank Schlew gave corroborative evidence as to the assault.

MOUNTAIN ASH LOCAL BOARD. The usual fortnightly meeting of the above Board was held in the board-room, Workman's Hall, on Monday afternoon last, when there present Messrs T. Edwards (chairman), J. Griffiths, It. Evans, U. J. N. Gray, W. Little, W. LI. Herbert, W. Bevan, G. Jones, D. Davies, and T. Yeo. The minutes of the previous meeting were read and confirmed. RAILWAY BRIDGES. The Clerk intimated that a letter had been received from the Taff Vale Railway Company, stating that the estimate for the proposed maintenance of the bridges and their approaches by the Board had come to hand, and the matter would be considered. A similar letter had also been received from the Great Western Railway Company. THE VACANT SEAT. In accordance with a notice of motion at last meeting, Mr G. Jones said he should have preferred if some other member had nominated a gentleman to fill the vacant seat at the Board. However, he assured Mr Gray and the Board that he was not going to propose anyone that would not consider the interests of the colliery company (Messrs Nixon & Co.) and the rate- payers as well. He wished to follow the pre- cedent that had already been established, and which now had almost the force of law, in the present case, by proposing a gentleman con- nected with the colliery company. He there- foro begged to propose Mr James Davies, of Forest Cottage, to take the place of Mr W. Pritchard. Mr Davies, as they were aware, was successor to Mr Pritchard as colliery manager. Mr Yeo said he would not detain the Board long, but he just wished to make a remark in connection with that proposition. It was simply this: it would be in the remembrance of the Board that two members, he believed, were elected to represent each company—the leading colliery companies in the placs. Their good friend, Mr Bevan, who was still a member of the Board, had left the employ of the Penrhiw- ceibr Company, and at present that company was only represented by himself. Now the re- presentation of the Penrhiwceibr Company had been much longer in abeyance than Messrs Nixon's Company; so, he should say, couteous ly and reasonably, they were entitled to the seat vacated by Mr W. Pritchard. It was true that Mr Pritchard belonged to the yonder side of the district; and it was equally true that another gentleman was put in nomi- nation-pretty well a third representative of Messrs Nixon's Company. He wished to quote this as a precedent, which was really on his side. Mr Lewis Edmunds once represented the interests of Messrs Nixon's Company. He ceased to represent that interest, but did not cease to be a member of the Board, and another representative was elected in the place of Mr Lewis Edmunds. Taking this as a precedent, he (Mr Yeo) thought it altogether in his favour. He did not, however, wish to press the matter on that occasion but hoped, when the next vacancy occurred on the Board, the interests of the Penrhiwceibr Company would be considered as kindly as that of Messrs Nixon's Company. The Chairman You have a perfect right to move an amendment. Mr Yeo: I do not wish to do that. The Chairman: I quite endorse your remarks. Mr G. Jones remarked that Mr Bovan still represented the West ward. They were all anxiou&to-see the Penrhiwceibr Company fairly represented at the Board. Mr W. Little said Mr Yeo was quite in order and thought they should adhere to the arrange- ment as far as possible. It was a kind of un- written law. Mr Yeo I only wish that our position should be recognised. There being no amendment, Mr James Davies was declared duly elected. SURVEYOR'S REPORT. The following was read :— Gentlemen,-I. I beg to report that, in ac- cordance with your instructions, I have ordered and fixed a rain gauge in the garden at the back of your Medical Officer's residence. The gauging will date from this date. II. I beg to lay before you a letter from Mr Morgan respecting the ash depot at Graig Quarry. I accompanied Mr Morgan to the said place, and was then informed of the necessity of discontinuing the tipping of ashes in the Upper Quarry at Graig. Mr Morgan isdeirous that the Board should, for some time to come, use they Lower Quarry at Graig for the deposit of ashes. Should you carry out the suggestions contained in Mr Morgan's letter, it will be necessary to metal the lower road to the quarry and con- tinue the formation of such road for a distance of about 50 yards. The costs of such works would be about £12. III. I beg to report that I have to complain of the nuisance which still exists upon the premises in the occupation of Mr Jones, chemist, in Pryce-street, the property of Mrs. Jones, Victoria, Cwm. I would recommend that further notice be served upon the said owner to carry out the works necessary for the abatement of such nuisance at once, or the Board will execute such works and charge the owner with the cost thereof. IV. I beg to report that I have received the following plans to which I do not see any ob- jection, viz., 1st. From Evan Williams, grocer, Merthyr Yale, of a house and shop at Roberts- street, Roberts Town, Ynysybwl. 2nd. From Messrs Powell, grocers, of a stable to be erected in Woodland-street. 3rd. From Mr John John, of a kitchen to be erected at the back of No. 1, Glyngwyn-street, Miskin. 4th. From Messrs W. Jones and H. Ellis, of two villas to be erected at Aberffrwd, Caegarw.-I am, gentle- men, your obedient servant, S. O. HARPUR, Surveyor. Mountain Ash, June 1st, 1885. ASH DEPOT AT GRAIG QUARRY. Mr Little moved that the recommendotions of the Surveyor with regard to the ash depot be carried out. Lord Aberdare had behaved very handsomely when the Board were at a loss to find a suitable place. Mr Yeo seconded the motion and it was carried. NUISANCE IN PRYCE-STREET. Mr W. Little proposed, the Chairman second- ed, and it was agreed that the Clerk write a letter to the occupier and owner of the premises in the above street, that unless the necessary work required to abate the nuisance complained of by the Surveyor be carried out at once proceedings would be taken. BUILDING PLANS. The building plans were adopted. NEW RATE. An estimate of a new rate was presented by the rating committee, it being recommended that a rate of Is in the £ be made. This was calculated to produce X2166 5s. 6d. Mr Little proposed, Mr R. Evans seconded, and it was agreed, that the committee's recom- mendations be adopted. MEDICAL OFFICER'S QUARTERLY REPORT. The following was read — Gentlemen,—The returns of our registrars for our Urban .Sanitary District for the three months ending March, 1885, give the following particulars:— In the Aberdare district the births numbered 18 (12 males, 6 females.) The deaths for the same period were 8, and from the following causes: Cancer 1, bronchitis 1, inflammation of the lungs 1, convulsions I, childbirth 1, congestion of the brain 1, dropsy 1, accident 1; total 8. Corresponding quarter 188S, 8. The vaccinations for the three months were 14 (all under one year of age.) In the Llanwonno portion of the district the births were 122 (64 males, 58 females.) Corres- ponding quarter of 1884, 63 (30 males, 33 females.) The vaccinations for the three months were ]08 (all under one year.) The deaths in the Llanwonno portion of the district numbered b5 and from the following causes Bronchitis 11, pneumonia 7, phthisis 3, convulsions 8, heart disease 3, debility 3, premature birth 2, childbirth 1, hemephregia 2, whooping cough 1, kidney disease 1, peretonitis 2, cancer 1, abortion 1, syncope 1, chonic gastritis 1, natural causes 1, tubercular menin- gitis 1, senile decay 1, accidents with inquests 4 total, 55. The total number of deaths in the entire district was 63. This will give a death rate of 20-8 per 1000 per annum upon an estimated population of 12,000. The total number of births in the district for the quarter was 140 (76 males, 64 females), giving a birth-rate of 64-4 per 1000 per annum. Our death-rate for the past three months has been fairly satisfactory. fhe chief causes of deaths have been from disease of the chest and respiratory oigatis, which are always prevalent in the winter months. From zymotic disease only one death is recorded for the quarter. The whole district has been inspected, and several other inspections have been made. The slaughter-houses Vhave been examined and found clean.-I remain, gentlemen your obedient servant, E. PRICHARD EVANS. Medical Officer. Duffryn Ffrwd, June 1st, 1885. The Medical Officer in a subsequent report stated that since the last meeting of the Board one case only of typhoid fever had been reported to him-at No. 22, High-street. The usual precautions were taken to prevent its spreading. The Chairman thought they could congratu- late themselves upon a very fair report. COLLECTOR'S REPORT. The Collector reported that £127 18s Id re- mained uncollected of the last rate, which he hoped to receive during the next fortnight. PROPOSED NEW HOSPITAL. The Chairman said that Mr Davies, who had been deputed by the Local Government Board to make an inspection of the district some time ago, had referred to the question of providing hospital accommodation for the place. A place for ten or twelve beds he thought would be sufficient. He proposed that the surveyor be instructed to make enquiries and report as to a site and its cost, and that the clerk write to Lord Aberdare asking for the terms on which he would let a site for the pur- pose mentioned. This was seconded by Mr W. Little and carried. FINANCE. The finance committee's report showed an overdraft on the general account amounting to f329 13s 7d, while the sewerage account was in credit to the amount of JE222 6s 7d. The Board then separated.

PAWNING A PAIR OF TROUSERS FOR MEDICINE. JAMES FBANCIS THOMAS lives in Poutnewvnvdd, ne»* Pontypool, Monmouthshire. He is now twenty-three years Of age, living with his mother, a widow. Some eleven years agO, then a mere boy, he went to work in the coal-pit as a miner, in order to assist his mother in rearing her family of littl« children Soou, however, the little fellow broke down in health; but the necessities of the family seemed to require.. it, and he continued to toil in the mines, suffering all the titne from the effects of indigestion, an agonising symptom being asthma, in such a troublesome form that the boy was unabte to lie in bed Working through the day, and resting as best he could in an arm chair during the night naturally undd" mined his constitution. Year bv year his health grew worse and wor-e, until at last rheumatism came with all its dreadfo' agony. One joint after another became swollen and inflame" so that he was obliged to stop work. In this sad plight ihe now young man was confined to the house for two long suffering all that mortal coald endure. One Physician after another was called upon to treat his complaint, but with nO benefit, for the poor fellow oontinued to grow worse and worse. Hoping to find some means of relief, a consultatien Of doctors was held. when it was decided that an organic disease of the heart existed in an incurable form, and that medical aid could not afford relief. He was given up to die. TheSe years ofexpensive treatment had exhausted the little savinge of the mother, and they had no money to buy feven the necef saries 0f life. But a fend mother never gives up in despai* There vwas one spark of hope left. Some onfe had told her of remed that had cured so many cases-evon when as hopele8 as this one seemed to be-and the mother's love went out for her dear boy. But how to get the medicaie was the questio0 Their money was entirely gone. The boy had trousers that he had been too illtowetr,andthemotllei- reasoned within herself" If the boy is-to die he will not need them, so I may as well pledge them for medicine with all effort to save his life." Strange as it-may appear, th > bottles of medicine procured at the chemist's shop in Pontypool with the money obtained from the pawnbroker affected a cure ill, this hopeless case, which had been pronounced as incurable, But it is only just to say that ifthe chemist had known Of, the wants of the family the medicine could have been ob' tained without a visit to the pawnbroker. It is now nearly two years since this took place, and young James Franc'9 Thomas has been working in the coal-pit underground since, earns extra pay for overwork, which he is able toperCor. Of course he never had orgaflic disease of the heart as supposed.
