MEMS FROM THE MOUNT. Racing is banned, so a well known lay-preacher smokes Turf cigarettes. "Stand up and take the oath proper- ly," -said Col. Morgan to a witness who was lolling across the box. When a man "stoops" to take the oath, it had surely be better left alone. A Mount mathematician, fond of simple equations, has been puzzling over the question of the number and letter of the latest vanquished Zeppelin. Also if the said letter and number sig- nify the destination of the crew Wha t is a farm bailiff? The ques- tion cropped up at the local tribunal. Somebody said he was a liect-ei and ditcher. It was left to Air. AN llliams, the agricultural representative, to solve the question. The bailiff is like the colliery manager, who walks about to see that everybody else does everything else. A hot argument was proceeding be- tween two friends as to the efficiency and readiness of the German Army. They were ready to the last button, per- sisted one of them. Quite right, came the answer like a flash, "but they had forgotten the polish." The latter was said to have won. M.A.U.D.C. runs the inscription on the Council Car.

There is a-lot-meant by the gardeners who call it the Mountain Ash urgent delivery car. The writer of these lines modestly requests the winning ticket if he calls it "The Flying Speed. The Beer troubles are heavy upon the licensed victuallers now. The short- age has affected every house in the Mount. All the clubs in the Mount and all but two of the pubs have been entirely without on several occasions. It this gets much worse Mincing and Mark Lanes will put the tea up. Per- haps double-T.T. A multiple meat firm applying for exemption for their manager, gave as one or their reasons, that they supplied the working .classes with cheaper meat and to Keep down excessive profits. One of the tribunal members immedi- atelv asked the address of the shop. Cheap meat, forsooth—cheap abat, more likely.
