The War. Officer's Sympathy. Airs. Roper, mother of the late Lance Corporal Benjamin Roper, Penrhiwcei- ber, whose photo appears on another page, has received the following letter from Lieut. J. S. Griffiths, 4th Bptt. Welsh Regt. :—" 1 deeply sympathise with you in the loss of your son, Lance Corpl. Roper, who was killed in action on March 26th. Although he had only been in my platoon for a very short time, I had already formed a very high opinion of him, and this opinion was fully justified when we went into action. His conduct was admirable and his bravery and fearlessness under fire were fully in accordance with the best tra- ditions of the British Army. He was shot at four o'clock on Alonday after- noon, and he died half an hour later without any pain. In your hour of sorrow you have the one satisfaction that your son died a hero, and un- grudgingly gave all for his country's cause."
MEMS FROM THE MOUNT.* I have received 37 smiles from the desert of Egypt or somewhere about Mount Sinai, or somewhere else. The said smiles are on a tiny photo, so small that I can only distinguish the \faces of Marshall Price and Tommy Richards, Miskin. Talking of smiles, nothing could be happier than the satisfactory beams on the face of a Mountain Ash boniface re- turning from his garden through Duffryn Wpods the other evening. He had the fork (not that of vulgar par- lance) over his shoulder, and like the ploughman in the famous Elegy, was plodding his weary way home. How strangely he resembles the late King Edward. How men differ, to be sure. Quite contrary to the gentleman of the prev- ious par, there is one in the Mount who wouldn't deign to dig his bit. No, certainly not, he cnsiders it infra dig. A curious set of circumstances were set up by the visit of the Rev. Camp- bell Morgan. He is a Congregational minister, and was preaching in a Welsh Baptist Chapel on behalf of the funds of an English Wesleyan Church. The talk about the Penrhiwceiber prize money, penny fares and parsimon- ious patronage is arousing plenty of persiflage in the Parish. It has been said that the tenors didn't even get fivers. A correspondent writes me about a wedding. Bride, bridegroom, brides- maid, and best man were all named Cook," he says. What a good job the first course at the banquet wasn't Broth, say J. A super-sensitive spud searcher went to Aberdare the other day. No bag for him, please. He could carry them in his pockets. His four pounds were con- siderably reduced when he got back again. He got into a schemozzle with a picture man, against whom he had a. grudge. He took his coat off to do a I bit of trench work, and hey, presto. the murphies were gone.
EMPIRE, MOUNTAIN ASH. Next Week: "Little Jack Horner." Air. Leonard Mortimer has now re- covered from his recent indisposition, which he regrets prevented him from appearing the first three nights of this week. He will positively appear this night, Thursday, Friday and-Saturday I in his charming play. "The City of Sighs and Tears." .Mr. Mortimer has always had a hearty welcome in the Mount, and everybody will be pleased to see him in the harness again. Air. Vereker announces for Alonday, Tues- day and Wednesday of next week the production of the grand spectacular pantomime. "Little Jack Horner.' lt is produced by Air. Nelson Barrett, and is full of dash and clever incident. Specialities will be given by Aklllo.-j Vivian from the London Alhambra Air. Sid Stanton, and Mr. Cliff Aiacken- zie. Despite the enormous expense oi this engagement, Mr. Vereker an- nounces that the prices will be as usual. I -="

ABERDARE LAD'S FATAL FALL. At the Aberdare Police Station on Wednesday an inquest was held by Mr. It. J. Rhys, touching the death of Idris Dallimore, 72 Monk Street, 12 years of age. James Dallimore, father of the lad, stated that on Sunday afternoon the lad was sent to Sunday School, but did not go there. About 4.30 he was brought home on a stretcher. He died about 5.20. Herbert John Stephens, Monk Street, a young- lad, said he was with Idris on Sunday afternoon. They went up the mountain. They climbed up the electric standard, Idris going near the top and witness about half-way. He saw Idris' clothes on fire, and then saw him fall to the ground. That was the first time for witness to climb that standard. Coroner: Let it be the last. D. Davies, Cwm farm, said that he saw the boys climbing the standard. He saw a big flash, and one of the boys fell. He went at once to the foot of the standard. One of Dallimore's sleeves was completely burned. He was lying on the side of his face, and bleeding from the nose and mouth. The stand- ard was near the G.W.R. bridge. He had frequently seen boys climbing it. A stretcher was procured, and the boy was taken home. P.C. Banks said that he arrived on the scene at 4.15. The boy's sleeve was burnt, and the skin scorched. The boy was then alive. His skull had been fractured. J. Martin, chief electrical engineer P.D., described the standard. It held the overhead lines over the G.W.R. It was 42 feet high. The voltage was 10,000, bare wires. It had been in use four months, and was on private pro- perty. A danger notice had been put up there and also on the sides of the public road. They would endeavour to make it difficult to climb this standard in future. He believed that the wire touched the boy's coat and set fire to it. Then he fell, and that caused his death. He was not electro- cuted. A switch arrangement at Blaen- gwawr Colliery prevented that. Had he received an electric shock he would have been killed instantly. The jury returned a verdict of "Ac- cidental death."
HACCAR'S, ABERDARE. Next Week: "The Marriage Market." Apart from the magnificence of the star film on Councillor Haggar's pro- gramme for this week-end, Thursday, f riday and Saturday, the name of Aliss Constance Collier, who features the principal part, is of immense import- ance. The great tragedienne has tilled a. noble place in the list of great stage productions, for she has been connected with the greatest actor-managers of the world. "The tongues of men" is the title of the film, based on the tuccess- lul plax- of the same name from the pen of Edward Charles Carpenter. The great serial story, "Liberty," is now in its most interesting stage and most de- lighting. Those wonderful Keystone Remedies so popular and so productive ol real honest fun. are always welcome, and Mr. Haggar, with great business acumen, places one of them in every programme. On Alonday, Tuesday and Wednesday of next week, the Key- stone will be "The Handsome Cabby, its very title conveying something of its wit and spontaneous humour. Air. Haggar's principal attraction is "The Alarriage Alarket," a great photo-drama of immense interest. It presents a problem of every-dav life, is a story well told, and a picture pre-eminently well displayed. Some of the problems of "The Laughing Alask" are being solved, and the story as it is being gradually unfolded becomes of greater wonderment every week. Air. Haggar announces his engagement of "The Hypocrites," which he will shortly produce.
