Mountain Ash Jottings. BY "LUCIFER." Brimstone and Lucifer have always been very closely associated. Which reminds me of a good story told of a doctor who, it may be necessary to add, does not live at present at Mountain Ash. One of his most persistent and assiduous clients was a Mrs M—. She was a collier's wife, and so she bad no doctors' bills to pay apart from the poundage deducted from her husband's wages at the colliery. Had it been otherwise I dare say the doctor would have discovered some means of reducing the number of her visits to the surgery. On the particular occasion I wish to refer to, Mrs M's daughter was suffering from some complaint requiring frequent doses of brimstone. And so the anxious mother was again often seen in the queue waiting her turn at the local surgery. Not content with frequent calls by day she one night, at 1 a.m., sought to disturb the harassed medico from his slumber. Not in the best of moods he opened his bedroom window and in a gruff tone enquired who was there. I want some more brimstone for my daughter," sorrowfully muttered the poor woman. 0, go to H- for brimstone," was the furious reply, and the window was closed with a bang. Street fighting seems to be on the increase notwithstanding the heavy penalties inflicted at the local courbs. A whole family was engaged in a street fight at Tyntetown the other night and the sequel was heard at the Mountain Ash Police Court last Thursday when three brothers and an uncle were fined 40s and costs each. Other cases from Ynysboeth and Mountain Ash were also dealt with. It appears that there is no law to punish combatants who engage in a set-to, unless they attract a crowd. The summonses are taken out for obstruction. But as a fight never fails to draw a crowd of spectators there is no immediate hurry for amending the law in this respect. Here is a graphic and picturesque discription (culled from the Cardiff Times) of a fight that occurred at Cardifi50 years ago 11 In con- sequence of the wetness of the day on Tuesday the labourers employed iu the town were unemployed Gathering from their haunts in Whitmore-lane, Mary Ann-street, and California,' a regular Irish colony, a gang of fellows and women trooped past the old cemet- ery (where a short time before they had laid one of their former comrades at rest with much of their characteristic grief), and hied to the Adamsdown Moors to witness a mill arranged among the navvies. A ring was formed and the rivals stripped. One of the fellows like Slasher was as ugly a black as ever run. His mug was engraved by small- pox, and had a flat Galway nose. The other fellow was the reverse in figure. He was short and stout, and his conk seemed to have been disigned from the ribs of an old-fashioned umbrella, and his head was as round as a mortar shell. He was one who would be regarded as a 0 great acquisition in the camp of the I Ojibbeways. Such were the men who were baited against each other in order to fill up the gap in Cardiff caused by a wet day, After a stubborn fight one of the combatants was dragged bleeding 9 from the ground, and the vociferous cheering of the winning gang seemed 0 11 the very germ and flower of pleasure," Some of the sporting phrases used above have come down to the present day, but whenever they appear in print now they are invariably placed between inverted commas. Mug for face was a common discription in the '50's, and it is frequently used to-day. Conk," for a good sized nose is not so frequent- ly heard, but it cannot yet be included in the ilst of obsolete slang terms, for one may still hear it from time to time at some local collieries. Another very amusing description ap- peared the other day in a South African journal. The contributor was reporting a concert and one of the artistes was honoured with the following notice :— Among the choir Miss Nora Moncho was the best songster, and her cheeks were like an apple, her mouth was like a cellar, her eyes were like an owl's at night, her hair was soft and curly, her ears were like shamrock flowers, but she looked like a crane, and her name was Jane."
The P.D. Strike. Mr Stanton's Action Upheld Acting on the instructions of the Executive Committee of the Miners' Federation, the various committees of the Powell Duffryn pits in the Aberdare Valley held a meeting on Monday even- ing to consider whether the action of Mr C. B. Stanton, miners' agent, in bring- ing out the men without notice, was justified. Resolutions approving of the agent's action were passed and forwarded to the Executive Committee.
A Collier's Crime. Brutal Murder at Abertridwr. Anita Dorothy Lawrence (19), a high- ly respectable young woman, living with her mother, sisters and brother at 5, Aberfawr Terrace, 'Abertridwr, was brutally murdered on Monday morning by a young man who lodged at the house. His name is Noah Percy Collins, age 24, and employed as a collier at the Windsor Pit. The young collier, there can be no doubt, had fallen violently in love with his landlady's daughter, Anita The latter, however, did not reciprocate his attentions. He appears to have made repeated attempts to induce her to keep company with him, but without success in fact she had declined poinc- blank to have anything to do with him. This was not because there was another young man whom she preferred; it is said there is no I- other young in the case. Her refusal arose solely irom 1 the fact that she did not care sufficiently for Collins. The latter appears to have taken Anita's coldness very much to heart, and eventually to have made a desperate resolve, which was carried out with deliberate coolness and determin- ation. He is known to have purchased a couple of sheath knives or daggers at Cardiff on Friday. On Monday morning Collins appears to have waited till the brother had left for work, then to have gone downstairs, locked the door be- tween the kitchen and the passage giv- ing access to the bedroom stairs, and finally to have attacked she girl then alone in the kitchen in a most deter- mined and ferocious manner. Al- together he inflicted seven or eight wounds. The neck was wrenched in ghastly fashion, the jugular vein being severed. In one of the two wounds in the breast half the blade of one of the knives had been lefo. Not satisfied with this, although each of the wounds so far described was enough to cause I death, Collins, with the other knife, stabbed the poor girl several times in the back, the knife penetranug the lungs. Blood flowed freely from the wounds. Collins, having finished his ghastly work, left the unbroken knife in a pool of blood, went out, calmly lit a 'cigarette, walked to a railway signal box a short distance away, and told the signalman he could send for the police as soon as he liked, as he wanted to give himself up. He remained by the signal box smoking, while the signalman went on to the bank and shouted to the policeman, whom he was aware had entered the house where the terrible crime had been committed. A BROTHER AT ABERAMAN. Prisoner behaved throughout with the utmost sangfroid. He submitted quietly to the arrest, and made a statement, it is understood, acknowledging himself as the author of the crime. The same cool attitude was maintained by him after he had been taken into custody. Little is known of his antecedents, but he has a brother living at Cadoxton, and another at Aberaman, the latter of whom he visited recently.

Football. BY "MTJDDIED OAF." In the vourse of a week or so the football season will be upon us, and the number of new teams that have sprung up in the district will have started upon their goal-getting campaigns. Locally, we may surely look forward to some fine performances. Dai Thomas, the celebrated Aberaman- ite, who has secured a reputation as a prolific try-getter up in Yorkshire dur- ing the past two seasons, will this week leave once more for Halifax for the forthcoming season. I understand that Thomas has had several tempting offers from some of the clubs up North, but the Halifax Club will not part with him. The Gadlys Stars A.F.C. will be up next season under a new name, viz., Aberdare Thistles." and the annual meeting will be held on Friday evening at the Heathcock Inn. The Club would be pleased to arrange some good fixtures with any of the contemporary teams in this or other districts. It will be re- membered that they were the only olub who emerged totally undefeated during the whole of last season. The secretary pro. tern. is Mr. W. Forey, 13, Dare- street, Aberdare. At a meeting of the members of the Aberdare Northern Union Club which was held :the other week, some splendid enthusiasm was shewn in the proceedings, which were presided over by Mr. Ted Ruther. The following gentlemen were appointed as Directors of the Club: — Messrs. Z. Andrews, Ted Burge, Thomas Edwards, J. Williams, Ted Ruther, A. S. Pleace (junr.), John Morris, and Llew Deere; the latter being also appointed as secretary of the club. The following were elected on the Finance Committee: Messrs. John Watkins, Z. Andrews, A. S. Pleace. John Williams, Ted Burge. i. C. Francis, H. Knight, and J. Macken- zie. The Match Committee will consti- tute the following gentlemen: Messrs. Ted Ruther, H. C. Francis, B. J. Lewis, J. Mackenzie, A. S. Pleace, and Dan Thomas. It was decided that the head- quarters be the Locomotive Inn; that the club's colours should be dark blue; and that the Metropolitan Bank should act as treasurers. The team may hold its first practice match at the New Athletic Grounds on Saturday. It is understood that the services of several well-known men have been secured for the team., and the opening game should attract a good "gate." Bryn Bushton, a popular Aberaman- ite, who was seen to advantage in the ranks of the Cynon Stars F.R.C., has now gone over to the Hull Club, who have secured his services as a U playing junior." This week-end will see the club's full dress rehearsal, when I hope' Bryn will make a mark! I have received the following communi- cation from a Mountain Ash enthusiast who signs himself Old Firm": _u Sup- porters of the Old Firm will be glad to hear that the club is going to have a successful season, and that several new players will assist the team this year. A good fixture list is in store for followers of the Old Firm, and the season will be opened on September 9th with Ply- mouth at home. Any player wishing to take part in the trial on Sept. 7th can send his name to the secretary." A scientist is now trying to find out why some footballers, who are inspired by the "cup that cheers," see the ball doubled! What we wish to find out is whv some of them can't see the ball at all! What has become of the Schoolboys' League, I wonder?

One of the most conspicuous objects which was seen during the recent display of August meteors appeared on August 2, at 10 p.m. It was seen by Mr G. Powell, Gloucester street, at Aberdare as a very striking object travelling from Cepheus to the bead of Draco, and it was also recorded by Miss Irene Warner, of Bristol, as a few degrees abolve the Eastern star in the tail of the Great Bear, whence it moved towards Arcturus. The meteor left a long luminous train, and was about as bright as the planet Jupiter.
Poor fellow," said a benevolent lady kindly, "what has brought you to this destitute condition?" "My wife, mum." "Your wife! How is that?"
