SIB. J. T. D. LLSWKLYN. Swansea Town Hall, says a London morning daily paper,,has now received a portrait of Sir John Dillwyn Llewelyn to hang among tho other mayors of the borough. Sir John was mayor in 1890, and scximpressed were the burgesses by his condescension in accepting the office, although ho jeft a deputy to do the work, that they ha.ve per- oetuated his features on canvas, although ihey declined to accept him as their Parliamentary representative. la BPite of His unpopular politics, Sir John is a much-, esteemed figure in Seath Wales, where he is a big landowner. He recently caused some amusement whiJejsitting as a member of the Welsh Land Commission by stating that, although he had struck out a clause in his leases requiring tenants .0 send him a goose at Christmas time the geese jtiii came in shoals. Sir John has had domestic Aria's of a peculiarly painful order. His eldest 1Ioy was drowned many years ago in the presence fhis wife andL himself, who were powerless to iielp him, and only last year the eldest of his two remaining eons died immediately after his engage- ment to be married to a singularly charming girl, GOWBB GUARDIANS GRUMBLE. The very "severe and unseasonable weather of .oe past fenv days has been playing great havoc with some of the garden crops in Gower. The »eeu east winds have been accompanied by severe ^rostat night,.and the result has been that rows :md rows of beans, which are now, of course, high Above the ground,afeave been blackened and kiUed jy the winter fiend. Acres of potatoes, too,.have jecn ba-diy da-maged, the effect of the tops becom- ing frost-bitten being that the tubers will remain runted and wiasned. WHY SO LONG UNBUJMED ? The discussion a.t the last meeting of the Swansea Board; of Guardians with reference to allowing bodiesiof paupers to remain at theWork- ..I>nse for seven or eight days after death tbrought *o light the fauct that in Swansea, more especially in the poorer parts of the town, it is the custom to leave bodies for a week after death before Ahe term eat takes place. Miss M. E. Brock elicited ihis statement from the undertaker during' "&is interview with the Board, and she appealed to tb. chairman to know whether auythintg couidnot be*done to^remedvtlio crying evil. Sir- John's reply was that it did not lie within thov power of the .Board to issue any instruction point- ing to the advisability of interment as soon as possible after deatn. This fact is to be regretted, for undoubtedly the>question is one thai requires- looldng into. Perhaps Miss Brock will be able to iafutta-Msomeof the members of the Sanitary Cewtroittan of the Swansea County Council to take the m&fcUr up. TKH MUMBLES BANDSTAND. The Yacht Club at the Mumbles having failtid to carry out the proposal to erect a bandstand on the promenade, the Mumbles Railway Company- have taken the matter vigorously in band, and already a very handsome stand is Deing erectcdj, on the sward at Bracelet Bay. The band of thoij 3rd Glamorgan Volunteers is to supply the-music —(on Thursday evenings, so it is said)—and'them is to be an cnciosure and chair-seats to defray- expenses, GOUS"&-LANE CHAPEL.
