PONTARDULAIS iiOTES. At Goppa Calvinistic Methodist Chapel, and at Calfaria Baptist Chapel, anniversary services were held on Sunday and Monday last. The officiating ministers a.t., Goppa were the Revs. Wm. Jones, Cross Hands, formerly of Morriston, and Maurice Griffiths, M.A., Llanelly; while the Revs. E Edmunds, Swansea-, and J. Jenkins. "Gwili," Porter- dulais, occupied the pulpit at Calfaria. There were good attendances at all the meetings throughout. The sheep dog trials will come off in June, and we are requested to state tha ttlie fol- lowing officials have already been elected :— Chairman, Mr. David White. Glyncaerau vice-chairman, Mr. Dd. Bonnel, Tynybonau; treasurer, Mr. Geo. W. Hughes Bird-in- Hand; and lion, secretary, Mr. Henry J. Urif- fiths, Forest. The prospects are said to be unusually bright and promising. A burglary is reported at the dwelling of Mr. J. Phillips, chemist. on Sunday evening last. Among the articles purloined are a gentleman's safety bicycle, some bread and cheese, and few coppers, and ten oranges. Tt. is to be hoped that the daring author of this outrage will soon be brought to bay Following the example of their Llanelly brethren, the Pontardulais tailors struck for a better "log" this week. Mr. Brvne, a M anchester official of the Tailors' Union has been busy negotiating here, but at the time of writing no definite .settlement has been arrived at. Preparatory for their Easter festivals, the local Baptists and Congregationalists held rehearsals at Tabernacle and Hope respec- tively on Saturday evening. The singing showed that the training on the part of the vocalists taking part had been efficient and thorough—a good auguty for the success ot the "gymanfa." The long-expected match with Mountain Ash did not come off a i ter all, and' Pontardu- lais football el's were very much disappointed in consequence. The "Mount" owing to I frost-bound grounds, and other reasons, arte several matches in arrears in their Glamor- ganshire League engagements, and one of these, namely, that against Pontypridd. they had to deeido last, Saturday—hence the can. celling of the fixture with Pontardulais. The Pontatdnlais P.T. Centre team beat the Swansea P.T. Centre on Saturday at Morriston. The previous match at Pontardu- lais resulted in a win for the Swansea team by seven points to six. Tho visitors were superior on Saturday, and won by two tries to nil. Conspicuous on the side of the win- ners were Tom Davies (Gorseinon) full back, Dai Hughes, and Rob Jones. The visiting forwards were weak. Hendy Juniors were defeated at Penfre- chwyth by a try to nil. The Juniors have been doing exceptionally well of late, and the reverse was unexpected. r II
