srRA Y NOTES. [By PIIILO."] of 6 hristmas is in the air, and although many homes have been made desolate- during the year by death, Christ- mas withal, brings with it sweet recollec- tions dt^<|Jp&dciations of friends that ar no more. The festival '• comes but once I year," and I hope it will bring to all gooa cheer." The folks of a neighbouring farm, believ- ing Christmas to be on Monday last, killed all their geese in readiness for that day.—Shemi, as usual, has done .some slaughtering for the Christmas market. Seeing so many soIdiers"Tn"'the town, I thought that- soiytcone had, droamt of a second French as n. tN- wiseacre, however, told me that they had only come to assist our police in*" 'keeping .order during the Christmas holiday's. I was glad to see Sergeant Acraman, and Corporals Acraman and San brook lppking so well, and judging1 from the shaking of hands on Sunday night last, I think they have been accorded a right good3 wel6tim/ 4 to their native town. I was pleased to see Mr Ernie Jones giving a turn home. What about his pre- sentation meeting? Mr Edwards, photographer, has a splended assortment of Christmas cards- noted alike for their novelty and attrac- tion. Our football team intend visiting St. David's on Boxing Day to play their return match with that team. I anticipate a victory for our boysfahA flhen they -will have a jolly drive home. Epjoy, |^ni^iv«s boys, • > v Wit'h a right good will; Conquer St. David's; And leave them with nil.

The usual Christmas services mill; be heid in the Church on Monday; and on Tues- day a Christmas Tree will be held at the Town Hall, in connection with the Methodist Chapel. I notice that the contents-trf the Echo are being reproduced now and again. I 0 hope to le.a.;rh,cportion of certain letter also re-apptafihg. The lamp which is to be erected near BrynymbT by*the Rev D. R. Parry Davies will prove a blessing. ° "')'T't,f" ,,¡,{ v.; •I thought of sending you something u very sensational" this week, but with the aid of Chrisijnas^ p^chiings, a.ud the influenza, I am afraid it will upset the nervous system of your readers, therefore I shall send it another time. At this season the wealthy are given to feel in some measure that they are mem- bers of the great family, and they who, by the accident of birth, are in indigent cir- cumstances, are for once in the year invited to share the bounty with their poorer brethren. I wish all my readers the enjoyment of the good tilings provided for them. J trust they will spend a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
