WANT OF WATER. "í4 I The JLIOCBI Government Board Inspector (Mr Bircham) reported having vi&ited the house, and found everything clean aud orderly. He had, however, found that there was not an adequate supply of waiter for flushing purposes. Mr Thomas Thomas said it was really time the town went in for a better water scheme. The Corporation had only been digging little wells here and there Instead of going in for a better scheme. The Master said that there was a well close by in Parcywal, which might be utilised. It might be years before the Corporation went in for a proper scheme. The Clerk, in answer to questions, said that the proper course for tkem to adopt would be to instruct him to write to the Corporation on the matter. This was agreed to. Somo discussion took place over the merits of the well at Parcywal but no definite decision was come to.
BANKYFELIN. We find that the result of the examination of the 3rd class of the above Sunday School is no less satisfactory than the previous results. Four were presented, and the four pnssed-fach onA having acquired a very creditable position. The following arc their names in tho order of merit :-(l) Bessie Davies; (2; Gladys Thomas (3) H. Phillips (4) D. Phillips. We again repeat our hopes that these successes will be the means of bringing many more to compete in earnest, so as to increase in the future the number of the passes, although it will be impossible to inorease the percentage.
Carmarthen Chamber of Commerce. ANNUAL MEETING AT THE GUILDHALL. THE RECREATION GROUND AND THE RAILWAY STAllON. Tho annual meeting ot the Caruiarthen Clumber of Commerce was held at the Guild-hall on Thurtday (the 30th ult). Mr Tbouias Thomas, j P., Disgwylfo. presided. There were also r,resent :-)L,Tr 'r. E, Brigstocke, Mr W. H. J.P. Mr A. O. Norton Mr Tnomss L'oyd Mr W. S. Morris Mr George Trthasne Air Waiter Spurrell 3ft T. Bland Davie' Mr II. P. Pritchard Mr David Giifliths Mr Jainert DaTies Mr C.

Ltwis snd the Secretary (Mr John 6Ler) The Chairman said that the first business on the agenda was to receive the annual report of the Council. THE WORK. V This report -tv,is read by the secretary as follows :— v "During \h )er there ha.re been two general I meetings, eev^ meetings of the council, end four meetings of ih-1 recreation aub-cotaonttee, all of which have t e. well attended. The financial statement to be presented bitows a oalanto in hsiH- of £ 20 0s 4d. ihc Council have steadily persisted ( in tbcir effort-i to obtain for the to-vn two improvy- ments which the Chamber of Commerce consider of t; srteat importance for the future prosperity ol the town, namely (1) a new railway station on the G.W.Railway line instead of two stations as at i present,with improved goods siding accommodation, 1 | and (2) a public recreation and exhibition ground. They have reason to Deueve mai lilc \.)'1<"11' Western Railway Company wiil shortly carry out their promised improvements, which will undoubtedly make access to Carmarthen from Pembrokeshire on the 01e hand, and from Llanelly andForrysidcon the other, far more convenient than at present. With regard to the question d a lecrealion ground, a sub-committee was appointed to wait on the Town Council, and afterwards a j,.int committee of both bodies met to conier. Progress has, however, bean slow owing to the difficulty experienced H1 obtaining a definite answer as to her willingness of the lessee of certain ibii(li near Magazine-row to sell her ;nterest-the ecclesiastical commissioners who own the land having referred the sub-committee to the leeee's agent, Mr Talbot Norton. It is to be hoped that an early arrange- meut may be arrived at. The Council were able to obtain a small but important concession from the the London and North Western Railway Company by the granting of a mid-day gocd-i train for stations between Carmarthen and Llandotery, enabling goads to be delivered a diy earlier than formerly. The Council were sony that for pii<ute reasons the secretary, Mr E. W. Dalies, had to resign in the middle of the year, as his services had been most valurd.de and efficient. They had since appointed Mr J"hn Secr in who"e aLili y and business habits they iiase every confidencc. Under the rules. the following members of the council retire this year, Sut are eligible for re-election, dz., Messrs David Grilliihs, WiJliam Isaac, C. E.Davies, E, A. Rogers, and I). Warren Lewis. It has been rhou,rht that possibly a banquet may be held under the auspices eit the Chamber some time ti.is year, and the Council would be glad of the opinion cf the metubers on this qucsticn at the anuual meeting. The Chaiim&n said he was o:dy sorry they hid not.something of a more definite character to report. There had been a good ceil ot quiet wo; k elotv. which eouhl not been slnwn in taat or snv other report. Some of the members hd connlaintd that there had been so few general meetings of the Chamber as a matter of fact, tYC- rules only provided fcr two meetings in the year. He held imsalf that it would be 'leuor to hkie a larger number of meeting?, so as to enlist the sympathy of the largsr constituency. lIe Loped that there would be a larger number of meetings during the year, at which members would bring forward matters relating to the welfare of the town. The of the Chamber, wlrch would be put before them, showed a balance in hand of £ 20 Os 4d. Mr T E. Brigstocke, in moving the adoption of the report, said that some comment might bo made on the fact that so little work had been done. As a matter of fact, improvements had to be carried out very slowly in a town like Carmarthen, N-jhere there were so many interests to consider. Tho widening of Church-lane and the opening up of a new road to the station were instances in point. Between tho inception and the acceptance of these ideas a petiod of something like 10 years elapsed. It was to be hoped that they would be able to make more rapid progress with some of the ideas referred to in the report No one who had wfit,-Iled how much the town depended upon the maiket facilities could exaggerate the importance of having a central station provided, which would do away with the difficulties experienced at the Junction. Such a railway development would give a new lease to the pi-okpority of the town. With regard to the matter of the Recreation Ground, he was not so sure that they would not have to hold a public m-zeting to help on the movement. There wa undoubtedly a certain amount of lukewarnose on the matter. They were a central community and the town was a very convenient one for the holding of sports, agricultural BIIOWS, etc. If they had a plot of 8 or 10 acres, it would not only answer these purposes but it would be an excellent drill ground for the Volunteers and tho Militia might also be able to drill on it occasionally. The more he thought of the matter the more convinced did he become that such a piece of giound could be provided at a tost, which would be very small compared to the benefit which the town won u deiive from it. lIe hoped that by pulling together they would be ablt3 to push on th town, which had been so long a centre for trade, and to show thoir neighbours that Carmarthen would not be behind hand in the competition for trade which was going on. The member who seconded the cdoption of the report said that the railway accommodation pro- vided at Carmarthen was no credit to a company like the Great Western Railway. There was some hope, however, that the steps which were being taken would result iu a change for the better. Mr T Bland Davies said ho thought it a great reflection 0:1 the town that there was i-.o place in Carmarthen where the young people could go and enjoy themselves—which would take them from idleness, and better prepare them to live in some other town, The time had come when the young man who could not play would have to tak» a sU<p back—just as the one who could not work. Ho hoped the Chamber would bring such influence to bear on. the Town Council as would make them provide a Recreation Ground. If proper accom- modation were not provided for some of the events held annually at Curmarthen, they would be tak-. n somew here else. A DANGER Mr D H Thomas said he agreed with what had bet-n said by the previous speakera as to the necessity for a Recreation Ground. An agricultural show had been established for the three countics, and it would be held every third ye.,ir--if not I oftener—at Carmarthen. Carmarthen would not stand a chance of competing with other places, if they had not a proper licld. There was also a motion on the agenda for the next meeting of the L'nitea Counties Hunters' Show to h dd it at Haverfordwest. Unless they could preside a tetter field for the show, they might loso It entirely before long. The Chairman said that this wm a very im- portant consideration. If theso events were taken away, the town would greatly degenerate in the eyes of the public. Mr W R Edwards sail he came there to show that he felt an interest in the prosperity of the town. lie had lived in the town for nearly 40 years, and he hoped he was not looked upon as an outsider. He had no doubt there was a great ) future before Carmarthen. He had only to look j at Mr D E Jones to see what Carmarthen was to- r day in the cycling traele. lie had it on the best authority that Mr Joneits was able to turn out the beat bicycles for ladies aud gentlemen that could be produced in the L'nited Kingdom (hear, hear). It was their duty as townsmen to give him every encouragement. They ought all to forget their differences and to do all they could for the town. The whole town ought to concentrate their energy so as to induce the G.W.R. to provide a new station. Other towns round abont were competing for the important meetings whiah were held four times a year at Carmarthen. It was time for the people of Carmarthen to wake up and let the ad vantages of the town whicn was central for the three counties-be known. The motion was then put to the meeting, and j carried unanimously. The treasurer's accounts were passed on the motion of Mr Thomas Lloyd, seconded by Mr George Treharne. Mr Thomas Thomas, Myrtle Villa, was appointed auditor. ELECTION OF PRESIDENT. I The Chairman said that the next business was to elect a president for the ensuing year. He had accepted the office last year but the pressure of his official duties had prevented him giving that attention to it which he should like to have done The position was an onerous one-and one which no OtiG ought to aceopt who was not able to devote the nocoiS'iry time to it. A good dtal lay on the president in initiating i-xiovemcufs ,.nd instiam'a- Ling those which had been initiated. Possibly that would account for the lethargy of the Chamber lately—that he had attended so badly to the business (" No no Mr JI, F Pritchard said thM they understood that circucpi .u es ever which ho had no control had p-re cental the pi evident giving that attention to the work du; i u the p«et year which he other- wise would. Mr Thomas Thomas had carried on the business with great PUCCCSS, and they could not do better than re-elect him if he would consent to take oliiee again. He us in touch with the neighbouring towns and Lis cervices IVOUIII be of use to tho Chamber in many imnrirtant matters. Mr l. Euwardd seconded the proposition, lie thought that it was their duly to press Mr Thomas t.> again accept the clif.ir. He had the interest of the town at hc-at and was well qualiti.d to curry cut '.he duties of the onLe. Mr T. E Brigstocke supported tho proposition. The president had taken a very active part in cmyuie through certain negotiations which wero not yet finished, and in which his assistance would be indispensable. llo hop:l that the president would oblige them by retaining office until these negotiations were finished. Mr H. F. Pritchard then put the motion to the meeting, and it was unanimously carried. The Chairman said that 118 they had been so 1 pressing, he would again accept the office. If bs wero unable at times to attend the meetings they would not think it was from ack of eympathy; but from nure inability to be present. VICE-CHAIRMEN AND COMMITTEE. The next business was to elect two vice- ihairmen. Mr D H Thomas proposed that Mr T E Brigstocke should he re-elected. Mr W R E hnnds seconded. The Chairman remarked t! at there was cot a member who attended better than Mr Brigstocke. The motion was carried ncln. ('on. Mr E James proposed the election of Mr T Bland Dawes as tho other vice-chairman. Severil members setondeel this simultaneously, and it was unanimously adap:e The following were re-elected to lht-s;x vacancies on Council :I,- David Griffiths, "Mr C E Davies. ,r William Isaac, Mr C Chapman. Mr E R Evans, and Mr A 11 Lewis. Those marked are re elected. THE BANQUET. Some uificujsioa to, k place over the best way of bringing the members together. It was finally agreed Lo have a banquet in October. HURRYING UP THE COMMITTEE. It wa? sugges'ed that a ratepayers' meeting be called to press on the Town Council the desirability of immediately taking steps to sccuvo a Recreation and Exhibition Ground. Mr D. II. Thomas said that they could not call a public meeting until they had something definite to put before it,. The Chairman proposed that the Ji iut Committee of the Town Council and the Chamber be asked to mote aa quickly as possible in the matter, and that a meeting be convened for that purpose. Mr T. Bland Da*.ifS tccondcd the motion, which was carried nem. een. Mr H. F Pritchard wa? ro el.ctod treasurer. The meeting concluded with a vote of thanks to th" piGsidc;iu. mo^ed by Mr T. Bland Davies, and seconded Ly Mr Thomas Lloyd.
AKOTHER MAN LOST TO THE QUEEN. Thomas Jones, a collier, of Gorsoinon- one of the old hands of the inlilitia-was I charged with being drunk and disorderly, and assaulting- the police. P.C. William Davios said that on the previous day at 4 p,m he saw the defendant in Shaw's-lane. lIo was drunk and using bad language. On being ordered to move on, lie went up Merlin's-lane and continued to be very noisy. He then committed a. nuisance, and when withess spoke to him he turned round and struck him oil the chest. Defendant was then handcuffed by witness and P.C. Rews, and taknn to the loek-up. Mr Kdwin Uavrie*, Blue-street, said. that the defendant had come into his shop; that afternoon, and caught hold of a pomrdi of sug;ir, which he threatened to take away if he did not get some tobacco* Defendant was sent in for a month with hard labour.

Thomas Davies said that at one o'clock that morning he found tho defendant on the Parade. She was in tho company of two militiamen; she was drunk, and was behaving in a very disorelerly manner. She- had a half-penny on her when searched. Superintendent Smith said the prisoner' had been up ten times before.

THE DOMESTIC DIFFICULTIES OF A BUTCHER. James Davies, butcher, Priory-street, was brought up in custody, charged with dis- obeying an order which had boen made on him to pay 7s a week to wauls the support of his wife. Mr James John, who appeared for the prisoner, stated that he intended on Monday to ask the bench to reduce the order which had been made. The defendant was unable to contribute tho amount ordered. The Mayor suggested that the 14s owing on this order should be paid, and that the. case should be re-opened on Monday. The court was adjourned for a settlement*: of the present phase of the case.

COCOA is more than mere stimulating and refresh- ing drink, it is also a nutritious food, and one of the most precious gifts of nature sustaining and invigorating the system probably more than any other beverage.

Dyma hi (1> w barhau.) -0- Corduroy cloth is expected to run rather scarce in this nt ighbourhood, and if the demand is to continue, there will be a revolution in the trade. In the vicinity of Abernant a young lad of 15 summers went out a little while ago to court his dear Angelina, and, as on every other occasion, she promptly responded to his appeals at her window. As was their usual custom, these victims of Cupid seated themselves comfortably besides a blazing fire and were alone to woo to their hearts' content, until ihey were enchanted into a state of profound oblivion—unmindful of their situation-heedless of any danger. Edwin would bestow more and more kisses upon the glowing cheeks of Angelina, and cresscs- the impulse of his burning affection for her—when lo in this exuberentjoy one of the legs of his trousers caught fire. Unnoticed this at first to Edwin, but gradually he felt his leg becoming warmer and warmer, which demanded his attention, ar.d on turning round found his leg all ablaze. Up he jumped and Angelina screamed, and no little commotion was made. The efforts of Angelina to oust the conflagration were daring in the extreme. This great stir caused tlia Boss to wake, and inquire of h:s wife, What was the matter down- stairs?" The wire being frightened with the bustling about, eaid GJ down at once and see. I am afraid some burglars have broken in." After grasping the nearest weapon of defence, down he went, shiveiing and trembling with fright. Gently he opened the door of the room where hs could hear the noise, and peeped in. lie at once realized his masterly situation, and shouted out What's up ? Thty also realized their situation, and looked at one another in utter confusion. After an explanation by Angtdina and entreating for the master's tolerance towauls Edwin, Edwin was helped outsido tho door with a gentle application of one of his clod- hoppers to his hinder quarter. Now. this is a lesson to all such young fellows. They think nothing makes them look •« big," and think them- selves "1m:m, when g ling courting at nights, with lighted black pipes in their mouths, and making used of such language as eiltitlei then to deserve the finest hiding they ever had. Now, young fellows, study and follow the advice you have had for the future. Dyma dro d ligwyddodd i faehgon o bentrcf Mydrim yr wythnos ddiweddaf. Mae yn debyg fod hwn yn ysir.ocwr ac yn cnoiwr dyhacco cryf. Yr oedd wedigwaghau y p mch erbyn yr hwyr yn llwyr, nid oedd modd cael un jawien yn ychwaneg.

Cyrlueddocld y shop a golynodd i'r shop wrait" tm I ounce 0 ddybacco. Yna rhoddodd y wraig y dybacco iddo a thaflodd y ntau yr arian ary counter a ffwrdd ag ef. Yr oedd mor falch o ddybacco' gan nad agorodd y packet lies dyfod hyd at Ileol y Bont. Pan oedd ar y Bont yr oedd yn gwybod foci yr hen feggars y tobacco yn ddigon pell, a dechreuodd tynu papur oddiar y tobacco. Dea., me," meddai, y mae gwraig y shop wedi dodi digon o bapur am dano beth bynag." Yr oedd ganddo ond un liaen o bapur eto cyn dyfod at v tobacco. "Dyma fe," meddai, ond gwarchod pawb nid tobacco oedd ganddo yn y diwedd, ond German yeast. Yr wyf yn dychmygu ei glywed yn rhoddi pump neu chwech o'r Welsh double barrel paicn- br»hcrs, pan welodd y German yeast. Dyma fe yn ol at wraig y shop mewn amrant, uc yn cyhocddi mewn llais awdurdodol, mai tobacco cedd ef yn niofjn nc nid german yeast. Yr oedd torf o fechgyn yn aros gerllaw. ac yn cael difyrweh mawr am ben y llano hwn. Yr oedd un o honynt am ddweyd maiamcany wraig wrth roddi German yeast 0((-l 1, cr mWYll chwyddo tipyn erno. Ond dylVLtleiit hwy beth fy-niient, Yr oedd bui mawr ar y shop wraig i roddi germaifr yeast i'r poor fellow, ac yntau wedi meddwl cymmaint am ddybacco. For shame, for shame, wir. Y mag y maer presennol sydd ar ddinas Mydrim yn CWYDO yn atw am na fuasai y dinasyddion yn dangos y boundary iddo. Nawr, fechgyn. ewch ar unwaith.

Y mae ciii maer ni yn Bankjfelin rhywfodd wcdi I peidio a gweithio llawer y flwyddyn hon. Y mae wedi bod yn amser pryeur arno hefyd, ac yn amser thyfedd hefyd. Y mae wedi cael papur g;a4 un- waith, ond v mae wedi dianc eto. Well done! Mae maer Bankyfelin yn gynt i'w draed na llawer. Y mae ei ddywediad yn eitha corrcct. (Yr ydych chwi ar ol).

The mansion is a magnificent building, and situated in a delightfully romantic spot, which is reached from the highway ¡(.ad by a drive of three-quarters of a mile in length. Iu the front of the house is a verandah, and in the giseen stands a euaimer-house surrounded by truit a-id other beautiful trees, including the aairicariae tmbricatae or monkey puzzlers. There is also a beautiful fountain, from the top of which, when filled with water, issues forth a spray. To the right of the mansion are the stable and coach-house to the left i an extensive plot of garden, in which there are several glass-houses and abundant fruit trees. A supply of water is received from a runnel which leads through a dense forest, which overheads the house. The walk from the entrance gate is bordered on each side with pretty rustic work, red and white flowers, chestnut trees, laurels, and rhododendrons, which enhance the charming aspect of the place, which in summer is a jperfect elysium.
