BRITON FERRY NEWS AND NOTES. I By OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] The dog show was an "all round" success. Very few enterprises of the kind are so enthu- siastically taken up by Briton Ferry folks. The success which attended the show may prove au incentive to revive the old and nearly forgotten annual institutions of the eisteddfod and regatta. Owners of dogs in particular, and owners of a humane conscience in general, are pleased to hear that the Muzzling Order has at last been revoked, having been in force since the 29th of August. The Dog Show Committee is to be congratulated upon the careful manner in which the arrange- ments were all carried out. All the dogs, cats, rabbits, poultry, pigeons, &c., were, with one exception only, returned safely to their respective owners. Rev. E. Nicholas, pastor of the English Congregational Church, has declined to accept the pastorate of Towyn Welsh Congregational Church at New Quay, Cardiganshire, which had been offered to him. The technical instruction classes held at the Neath-road Board Schools did not prove very strong, numerically, at the recent Science and Art Examinations. The thirst for knowledge does not appear to be very great among our youths, as the following figures prove. The number of candidates pre- sented for examination in practical plane and solid geometry was 4, in geometrical arawing 3, freehand 3, drawing in light and shade 4, model drawing 1, machine construction 5, and mathe- matics 5. A very successful concert was given by the Rehoboth Band of Hope Choir on Thursday. Mr. Ted Humphreys sailed from London last Saturday en route for Kimberley, thence to Jagersi'ontein. It will be remembered that Mr. Humphreys had to leave the Orange Free State when the war broke out. He is now going to resume his old duties. NOTES BY THE BRITON FERRY WANDERER. The Wanderer is seriously considering as to whether he will present himself as a candidate at the next Urban District Council election or not. If these Cardiff and London trips are likely to take place in the future, lie will certainly be tempted to ask some two kind friends to nominate him for the next fray, and then say that he has been requested by a large number of electors to present nimaelf as one opposed to picnics. I do believe that with a good lusty voice and a few arguments to show that they were a raid upon the pockets of the working-men, one would stand a chance to be returned. Apropos of my notes concerning the plan of the Public Library I would venture, on behalf of the inhabitants, to inform the Council that the plan has been sufficiently admired now, and that although we would very much like to see it executed, we feel bound to point out. in the interest of economy, that & glass ca"e had better be bought at once, so as to preserve it until the time when it will be required, which, we fear. is very distant. The philosopher who said where ignorance is blias, 'tis folly to be wise" could never have been at Briton Ferry. The remarks and indecent noiaes that are made by youths and young men who lounge about our street corners—apparently for that purpose—and which are evidently intended to be heard by those who pstss by, cannot be considered as anything but tne outcome of ignorance. Particularly when a lady and gentlemen happen to pass together these ignoramuses are very offensive in their remarks, and at times positively indecent. Our policemen would not be blamed if they made an example of one or two. It would be likely to have a very necessary and desirable effect. By-the-bye, could not the "man in blue" di-perst.- the crowds that block our pavements on Sunday night, etpycially at the top of Villiers- atreet. This is much required ? While admiring that solitary tract of water in the reservoir, the Wanderer was so much moved that be allowed himself to bing. He, and yet not he, for the words were inspired by the water, and the Wanderer was utilized as the mouthpiece. The following were the words :— There was a time when Willy dear Most closely watched the water But now, they say, more closely still, He guards a little widder. Outlined against the sky he stood, A sentinel to guard me But now it seems he's gone for good To mash a. little widdee. Return again, my dearest Bill, With all your oottles empty I'll smile upon you while you fill More samples for the vestry. DOG, POULTRY AND PIGEON EXHIBITION. LIST OF AWARDS.
