KIDWELLY. DEATH AND FUNERAL OF MR. RICHARD MORGAN.—The death occurred on Friday week, at his residence Lady-street, of Mr Richard Morgan, head of the firm of R. Morgan and Sons, builders, &c., at the age 0 n of 73. The deceased had spent the whole of his long life in Kidwelly where he was held in the highest esteem. Though naturally of a retiring disposition, lie had occupied for many years a seat on the Borough Council, under the old charter, and proved himself a very useful member. He was one of the founders of the Kidwelly Philanthropic Benefit Society. In religion he was a zealous Churchman and in politics a thorough Conservative. He leaves a widow and three sons to mourn his loss. The funeral took place on Wednesday in last week and was very largely attended. Amongst those who were present we noticed Mr Holmes Stead, solicitor, Dr D. Jones, Rev D. G. Owen, C.M., Aldeiman J. G. Anthony, and Councillor D. J. John. The Vicar (Rev D. D. Jones, B.A,), and the curate (Rev J. M. James, B.A.), officiated both in the house and in the chuich. The chief mourners were Mrs Morgan (the widow), Mr John Morgan, Mr Richard Morgan and Mr William Morgan (sons). Several beautiful wreaths had been sent including a very choice one from Mr Holmes Stead, Broomhill. READING ROOM—The quarterly meeting of the Committee was held in the Town Hall, on Tuesday evening bst when there were present Rev J. Reynolds, president, in the chair, Rev W. C. Jenkins, Messrs A. Stephens (ex-president), John Jones, R. H. Isaac, J. G. Anthony, D. Thomas, and 1). 0. Jones (hon. sec.). The question of discontinuing certain papers with a view to economising the funds was considered, and resulted in the Athletic 2\rex>s being removed. It was decided to substitute the Christian Hcnld for the Christian Age The president promised to supply the Room with the Scren Cymric, and the Rev W. C. Jenkins did likewise with regard to the Independent and Nonconformist. Both the reverend gentlemen were thanked for their offers. This was all the business.
LLANGADOCK. FUNERAL or YRS DAVIES, ALBION HOUSE. -On Monday, the 16th inst., the mortal remains of Mrs Davies, Albion House, the beloved wife of William Davies, tailor and draper, were interred at tho Burial Ground, Although tho funeral was announced for 2.30 p-tu. a large number of relatives and friends came at an eerlier hour. The Rev Mr Rees, vicar, read and prayed at the house and the Methodist Minister and the Rov Mr Thomas, of Providence, at the grave. The body was interred in a hand- some coffin and the arrangements were entrusted to Mr Evan Davies, carpenter, brother of the widower. Mr Davies has lost a good wife, a kind mother, and always a cheerful neighbour. Sue bore her lingering illness like a good Christian, without a murmur. Everything that could be done for her on earth was done, She was about 48 years of age, a faithful member of Providence Independent Chapel, and leaves four children—of which one is a baby-who, indeed, will miss their mother.
W HIT LAND. INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL MANAI-KRS' MEET- INGS.- The managers held two meetings—one on Tuesday to meet Mr Owen Owen, the chief inspector, on his visit of inspection to the school, and another on Wednesday to make the arrangements for the annual scholarship examination, when the following managers were •—M'' H. Lawrence (chairman), Rev D. Jones, Mr P. X. Owen, Mrs Phillips, Mrs Thomas, Mr Scourfield, Mr Phillips, and Mr B. T. Davies.-Tlie Chief Inspector stated that he was highly pleased with the working of the school, and the f discipline was exceedingly good he was also very pleased with the new sehool buildings, but pointed out the laboratory, laundry, and kitchen required fittings, and more furniture in the way of desks, &1:" for the masters, and also more for the pupils, etc. The play- grounds, too, required completion, and put in a state that the pupils could be drilled upon it.—The Chairman explain that they had been unable to obtain the furniture, Arc. to complete the grounds through lack of funds, having appeared as a deputation before the County Governing Body for additional funds for the purposes named, and if they would succeed they would at once carry out the necessary requirements.—The Inspector said he could'fully sympathise with the managers, and regretted that the scnools should be hampered in their work for lack of funds, which would continue until a penny rate was made, so as to place the schools in a bettcr financial position. The Inspector explained the different sections of the scheme in the working of the school, especially J'/ the scholarship and bursary questions, and hay- ilia: thanked the managers for their attendance, withdrew.— Mr ii. J. H. Lawrence, the Chairman, presented the school with two large magnificent steel engravings (artists' proofs), value ten guineas each, entitled The Serpent in the ■wilderness," &c., which he begged the managers to accept on behalf of the school, which they did by passing a resolution re- turning their thanks and appreciation of the I ye I valuable gift the Chairman had presented to the school, one which other gentlemen would do well to emulate and not only in that respect, but also in his untiring zeal and faithfulness in discharging his duties as chairman of too school, being present at every meeting of managers sinco its 0 formation—nearly four years ago. Arrange- ments for the next entrance scholarship examination were completed, which will be held at two centres, viz., at the Intermediate School; Whitiand, where Mr 1). T Davies will act as procter, and at the Glasfrj n Board School, St. Clears, where -Mrs 1 homas, The Croft, St. Clears, will be the procter. Saturday, the 25th June, 1898, has been fixed for the examination, but candidates will be required to send in their names to the secretary on or before the I8lli June, 1898 (see advertisement). Ten cholarslrps will be oftlred-fi ve for the Whitiand school district, and five for the St. Clears district, being school free for tne year, but which can be augmented by the managers when con- sidered necessary. Bursio ies will also be granted to those regaining same. Each case will be considered on its merits by the managers. Applications should be made to the secretary. Mr T. C. Rees. who has given tho greatest satiscaction to the managers, was again re-ap. minted examiner. ?I n I? you recuire WEDDING -AKDS, call at the Reporter" Office, A nice selection to choose from, Cheap prices.

Elementary veliools in Wales. THEIR EFFICIENCY. It is gratifying to note that in the Parliamentary return for the quarter ended March last of public elementary schools which have been "warned" or had their grant actually suspended by the Education Department cither on account of the inefficicncy of the education provided or of defects in the school premises only two schools in Wales appear, and neither of these is a Board school. Montgomeryshire the National school at Bleddfa, which has an average attendance of 26, has been warned on account of the inefficiency of the education in elementary subjects, while in Monmouthshire the British school at Abergavenny, with an average attendance of 291, has had its annual grant suspended for three months on accout of defective premises.
LLAXDILO. SPBINO FAIR AT LLAXDILO.—The usual spring fair was held at Llandilo on Saturday. There was a fairly good demand, but prices were not up to the usual standard. THE BIBLE SOCIETY.—The annual meeting of the Llandilo Anxilary of the Bible Society was held at the Drill Hall en Monday evening. In the unavoidable absence of the Rev Jacob Pritchard, the announced chairman, the chair was occupied by the Rev W. Davies. Tho introductory services were undertaken by the Rev John Davies. The Rev Cyndyllan Jones, agent of the society, delivered an address, for which, 011 the motion of the Chairman, seconded by the Rev D. B. Jones, he was accorded a hearty vote of thanks. DEATH or \1R RKES DAVIES.—By the death of Mr Reea Davies, New-road, the town has lost one more of its old inhabitants, as had he lived to Whit-Monday he would havo attained his 88th birthday. He wes connected with a trade that has vanished from Llandilo, viz, the malting trsde, having tnen in the employ of the late Mr D. Lewis, ag w ll us in that of his father. The deceased was greatly respected. IXFIKMAUY DAY.-Tiis was held on May 14th (fair day), on which day it was held for the first time last year. Then it was more or less an experiment, but hating been so successful, it may be taken for granted that it will now be an annual institution. For pedestrians, who were supposed to have any superfluous cash, it was almost a case of your money or your life" on Saturday, so persistent were tho fair beggars. However, they were rewarded by being ab!e to han i over the sum of £ 35 odd to a deserving institution. DEAFNESS AND NOISES IN THE HEAD. cured at the patient's homy.

I Cycling. The great London Shows of Cycles, the Stanley ana the National, have hitherto escaped clashing but the Stanley s date. a, year later than their last óhow, has for next reason also been selected lrv the promoters of the National, and the effect on the jaded show-goer will bo deadly in the extreme. Compulsory rational dress is the latest triumph for reformers of the skirt to report from St. Peters- barsjh. There, an official police order baa gone f'jrth that ladies are to adopt knickerbocker co~- tume on their bicyclec, or if they do u&e a gown, it must be of that description which can be more or less mysteriously hooked into the semblance of trousers. From America, we learn, however, that in the fashionable cycle parades, "rational dress" haa been absolutely unseen, all the better class of Amer- ican women adopting skirts, without any division. The latest attempt at evasion of the cycle lamp law, was made by a rider who ventured to think that the smoking of a cigarette emitted sufficient light to come within the legal definition of signall- ing his position and approach. Needless to add, the excuse proved futile, and the new illuminanfc failed to be appreciated by the Court, and the usual line followed. Riders, who are under the impression that the chief claim for the supremacy of the Dunlop tyre is its remarkable speed powers, will be interested to know that the Dunlop possesses extraordinary strength and durability, unapproached by any other make. It is owing to this special feature that the nrm have been favoured with an order to supply a pair of tyres for a Mr. Manning, of Dublin, who weighs no less than twenty-two stone, and stands 6ft. Gin. in height. Having in mind how extensively cycling ia pur- sued at seaside places, it is not surprising to see the words Cycle Accommodation" freely posted up. Every person who spends a holiday at the seaside, manages to sandwich in a little cycling with other pleasures, and cycle stabling is more in demand than ever. Steps are being taken to regulate the cycling traffic in the streets of Northwich, as it appears that sonic misguided individuals have been riding recklessly and endangering the lives of peaceful law-abiding residents. Tho Urban District Council have been discussing tho matter, and after hearing several suggestions, have como to the conclusion that the County Council bye-laws with regard to cycling arc severe enough, and tho polico have been instructed to keep a closer watch on all cyclists riding in Norwich and the immediate vi- cinity. Cyclibts who may be traversing the country be- tween Little Blakenham and Norwich are advised to keep a good look-out for nails, generally business end upwards on the road. Idle folk about this quarter arc evidently bent on a crusade of destruct- ion as far as cyclists' tyres are concerned, for some tourists have recently encountered quite a formid- erable array of nails upon the road which had evi- dently been put there for a very obvious purpose. Other times, other manners. Now that the pas- time has taken such a strong hold upon all classes, the inn-keepers and cyclist's caterers see that in being attentive and courteous to those of the cycl- ing brigade who patronise them, that therein Use much wisdom —and a little fortune. It is not so many years ago that the traveller all wheels was regarded more as a savage invader than a fellow- countryman who should be entitled to as much res- pect as any other user of the highway who pays for his accomodation. In one or two cases the London club committees propose to deal very bummarily with cases of scorching and riding past the captain when tha club is out carrying through its official run. They invite tho co-operation of all members in putting down the evil; for such it is, as if fostered it soon upsets tho main idea of the club run which can auly mean sociability and riding in company to tho mutual advantage and convenience of all concerned. Once t-corching and "spread-eagling" becomes rampant, then your club-run is a dead letter. Koad-hoge. of whom no better applicable term could be found for these horsey pests of the high- way, are at last receiving the proper dues at tha hands of the magistrates. The justices have too long closed their eyes to the fact that because a being drives a smart horse and trap along the road tho inference ia that ho must be a gentleman. Urgo the cyclist must be to blame for getting in his way. Nice justice this However, matters ap, pear to bo on the mend and in the meantimo wo should bo thankful for small mercies, and devoutly hope for the total extinction of the road-hog." Unpaced road records have had a little attention lately, owing to the sanction of them by the Nat- ional Cyclists' Union, who, while abolishing road racing, have left the field open for their licensed riders to go for unassisted rides on the road with- out incurring the penalty of the Union's displeasure and excommunication. A. A. Chase, on a mach- ine fitted with Dunlop tyres, availed himself of this sanction, and recently essayed an unpaced fifty on the North Koad, covering ths official rout in 2 hrs. 7 lnuis. 8 sees., thereby establishing the first au- thenticated record of its kind. Twenty-three miles an hour without pacers, on a single, is marvellous guing. About the fastest single motor-cycle extant is the one built for himself by direction of M. Bollee, with motors of eight horse power. Seated on this, ho recently scorched for ü3 miles in less than a couple of hours, his pace working out at one minute and fifty-one seconds per mile. It is small wonder after this to hear of motor-cars colliding with one another during the last French autonaobilists' com- petition and causing a fatal accident to the driver of one of them.
