Profondds (Llaneamlot) writes:—The following extract taken from the "Cambrian" of March 14th, 1874, will doubtless interest ymir many readers in the Neath district- more especially so as the office of oolkctor iSr vacaal! Ihe late Mr. Evan Jem-kins, of Cefnyreagyra Farm, Coedfranc, was the first coiiector ot that parish, and was euc- oeeded, not by the late Mr. William Wil- liams, of Pony rally, as is general impres- Mon, but by his daughter, Mias Jenjcins, Whuoh fact is definitely proved below. When Miss Jenkins Rsugned Mr. Williams was appointed iter successor. The position of Miss Jenkins lf; unique, not otnly being the daughter of a collector, afterwards colkctcr herself, she is now the wife of a collector, viz., Alderman Jordan, Lhnamikfc. "NEATH BOARD OF GUARDIANS. "ortm?btly meeting of this Board was heM yeetorday. There was a large at- tendance. HoweA Gwyn, Esq., presided, and there were present: Mesons. W.

"Before the eJ-eritaon was proceeded with, the chairman expressed a strong hope that as the appointment was an important one, the Giiardiia.w; woiiid not be led away by ¡I.ny feeling, but would give their votes indeperad- eat.lv, so as to get the most oanrpetemt person appointed. lie referred to the lcsses whicu the Swansea Union had lately sostei ><?:i by their collectors. In the Neath Union they had liitlierbo escaped such losses, and he tljereZore hoped that they wau:1d that day do their best to secure the most fit and proper peiMrti to succeed their late exaeiteat oiEosrr, Evan Jenkins. "Ihe applications and testimonials of the candidates having been read, the candidtes were reduced to four: Mias Jenkins (daughter of the collector), Fisher, William Wil- liams, and Lake "On the final division Miss Jenkins was elected by a majority of four, she receiving 11 votes and Win.
