Mountain Ash Jottings. BY "LUCIFER." "The hand that rocks the cradle has been very busy during the past week. One everywhere ladies with little slips of crimson ribbon attached to their dress in a very conspicuous position. The colour is very suggestive of danger, and especially to that species of man called "non-unionist." Evidently the Avcinen mean it. The news' has filtered through to me that the press is to be. admitted to their future meCmgs. Wise decision, ladies, and an example that might well be fol- lowed by other bodies that consistently hold j ¡)(' press at arm's length. The women intend to make what is. called in army circles a frontal attack all along the line OIl the non-unionist lodger. The intention is to refuse lodgings to any man who cannot show he is fully paid up on the books of the Federation. We have all been grumbling about the Aveather. and certainly the grumbles seemed justified; yet I understand, and that on the highest medical authority, that the wet summer has caused a con- siderable decrease in the death rate. This is most marked in the returns of In- fantile mortality from that dreadful see urge diarrhoea. In some parts the decrease has been more than 50 per cent. "It is an ill wind that blows no one any J good." I was pleased to see some of our local athletes fairly successful at the Ponty- pridd Sports. Mountain Ash seemed to be quite deserted last Monday, and no wonder, when such a splendid programme of sports was laid in front of them.. a A fine meeting" was the general verdict, and what is more important, quite clean. The streak of fine weather we have been enjoying was very welcome to the Butts on parade last Sunday. The procession may be voted a huge success; it was a fine sight, and Mountain Ash with his wife turned out to Avitness one of the most picturesque procession's that has ever walked the strets of Abercynon. I am pleased to hear that Major Morgan has returned to Mountain Ash, considerably improved in health.
