Kid welly "hips. ■ — [BY SPECTATOR.] The football match recently played at Llanelly between the Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire Police, excited some interest in Kidwelly from the fact that the former had the assistance of P.C. Thomas, our local constable. It wasn't his fault that the Pembroke men won. -:0:- Otice-igaiii it has become necessary to altar the date for holding the Reading Room concert. It is now definitely fixed for the 8th of March. From the number of tickets already disposed of, we confidently anticipate a bumper house. -:0:- We hear, on good authority, that Mr A. Stephens, The Arlais, wiil be a candidate at the forthcoming County Council election in opposition to Mr Holmes Stead, the sitting member. -o;- For the posts of Borough auditors, we understand there are three candidates viz., Mr L. Jones, chemist Mr D. O. Jones, Castle Board School and Mr J. E. Paton, Lady-street. The latter in conjunction with Mr George Redford, who has left the town, was auditor for the year just ended. If neither of the candidates withdraw, the selection will rest with the ratepayers, who will decide the matter in the usual way-bv ballot. J -:0:- 1 he appearance of frost and snow at the end of an unusally mild winter, niust surely be very unwelcome to those who have been busy gardening. Some few weeks ago we were admiring the early crops in some gardens. These are now nipt with the lagging rear of winter's frost," and the un- happy gardeners must admit they have been just a little "too previous." -)'- IN-c desire to expres our deepest sympathy with Alderman T. G. Anthony on the death of his only daughter, Diiys Gwendraetb, who succumbed to an attack of inflammation of the brain on Sunday last. The little one who was only eight years old, was a particularly bright and active child, and her presence will be sorely missed in the home, the chapel, and the school. -:0:- A piomiment Kidwellyite, in the person of Mr Thomas Morgan, Croft Cottage, has just been removed by the hand of Death. The deceased had been ailing for many months, and his demise cannot, therefore, be said to be unexpected. He was formerly Mayor of the town, and up to last November was an Alderman of the Borough. He was at the time of his death a member of the School Board, and during the whole of his long life he was a piilar of strength to the Calvinistic Methodist cause in the district. Verily, he was a good man.
