The Batter-Maker's Opportunity. Nowhere in the wide world can butter of more perfect flavour be produced than in Lb. old country. What, then, is it that sires our rivals the preference and the pre-emin- enoe on the English market P It is the uniformly of the product. The quality may be all right, the miiik UD- tainted, and the manufacture perfect, bat tiwit is not all. It is of no use sending out the produce of the dairy at one time with a rich June tint, and at another with a ooioar resembling lard. In the use of colouring matter, many people make mistakes—they use harmful aniline compound. Again, a crude product often results in uneven or "muddy" colouring, and the appearance of the butter is completely spoiled. On the other hand, there are certain preparations, tasteless in themselves, which have the effeet of throwing up, 18 it were, the flavour of the butter. Those who have tried the article known under th^ name of tbs "Silver Chum" Butter Colouring, have found it to answer this requinment in an an- usual degree, and being of exceptional purity, it goes much farther than other simi- lar preparations, and, moreover, has the advantage of not colouring the butter milk. The "Silver Churn" bramd is the produat of an old-established firm, Oldfield Pattison and Co., New Bridge Street, Manchester, and may be obtained either from them direct or through the leading chemists and dealera is dairy supplies at 6d., Is., 2s., 5s., 88., and 14s
-a.A Carmarthen Borough Police Court This court was held on Monday (before the Mayor (Mr J. N. Williams), Mr W. Morgan Griffiths, and Mr E. Colby Evans. MOTHER IN LAW AND SON IN LAW. The adjourned case of Jane Thomas against John 'EYans was mentioned. Mr White, who appeared for the defence, said that the case had been before their worships a fortnight ago. Mr Morgan Griffiths said that he had not been present at the previous hearing. Mr White: It was a very good case. As the plaintiff did not appear, the case was struck out. THE -MAINTENANCE OF A HUSBAND. Mr T. Griffiths relieving officer for the Llangendeirne district, applier for an order to compel Mrs Mary Louise Jones to contri- bute towards the support of her husband, who is now a pauper Lumatiic in the Joint Counties Asylum, Carmarthen, and who is chargeable to the Common Fund of the Car- marthen Uindon. Defendant had formerly lived at Towy Castle in the parish of Llan- defoilog, and now lives at Bexhill-on-Sea. Mr Saer, the Clerk to the Guardians, in him opening statement, said that the defen- dant's husband, Edward Bowen Jones, had been a manager of one of the London branches of the L. and P. Bank. When the Guardians applied to (Mrs Jones for a contri- bution towards the maintenance of her hus- bany they were told that she had a email in- come under a inai-riage settlement which she was unaible to anticiipate, and out of which she had to maintain herself and three chil- dren, and to educate two of these. She offered 5s a week, and the Guardians accep- ted 4s, because if they had aooepted 5s they would thave lost 3s 9d Exchequer grant. Mr (Morgan Griffiths: You reduce the amount in order to do the Lmperial puree. The Clerk (Mr R. M. Thomas): As rate- payers we benefit at the expense of ourselves as taxpayers. Mr Saer said that the Guardians had learned that Mrs Jones had an incme of R290 a year. A 'lady who had such an income ought not to allow her husband to become chargeable to the ratepayers of the Union. The Guardians asked that the defendant should be .required to refund the whole cost of his maintenance—8s 9d a week. The defendant's husband ought not to be a pau- per at all; and if he were the Guardians ought not to bear any part of the cost of his maintenance. Mr Griffiths, the reli-eviing officer for the district, formally proved the facts of the cage. Mr Morgan -Griffiths, who is the Clerk to the Asyluim Committee, stated that he would take no part in the case. Mr Brunei White, who appeared for the defendant, cross-examined the relieving offi- cer. He asiked who had given information about the defendant's means—was it the relations of the husband? Mr Griffiths: I don't know anything about it. Do you know who is behind the scenes in this <»ae?—I don't know anything at all. Is the infomnation given by the lunatic's own relations?—It has not been giveji to me. It has reached the Guardians. Mr White: Do you know that this money is settled on her without the power of anti- cipation. Mr R. M. Thomas: I don't suppose that he really knows what the power of anticipation is. Defendant stated that her father John Inman, a stockbroker, died at Hastings in 1884. She got C200 a year under a marriage settlement. That amount had come to her after the death of her mother. Besides this she had an additional £ 23 a quarter, which she emjoyed, since she came of age. That made her income L292 a year. She was bound to keep her children. Mr Saer: And the law says you are bound to keep your husband. Defendant: Oh, well! Mr Saer: She came into my office and said she had nothing. Defendant: Excuse me, iMr Saer, I said I had not a big income.—Defendant went on to say that she had three children, two by a former marriage and the youngest by her present husband. The eldest, who is 18 years of age, is earning £50 a year as a Bank Clerk; but she had to allow him £1 12s a month as his salary is insufficient at present. Mr White said that liexhill was an expen- sive place to live in. She had to pay zC32 10s rent for a small house. c- Mr R. M. Thomas: She is not bound to live at Bexhill. Defendant said that she kept one servant. Her daughter was an. invalid. She gave full details of her household expenditure. In her statement, she allowed JE3 a week for food, light, and fuel; 950 for clothes; and what with doctor's bills, lessons at home for the children -and other items, she main- tained that she could not afford to pay more than she had offered. Mr White said that the defendant had had a very hard life with her second husband, and had paid hds debts. Mr White in his address for the defence argued that the income was a small one, let the Guardilans go to some of the relatives. They had not asked his brother to contri- bute anything. Mr Saer: They are not legally liable. Mr R. M. Thomas: It is not the business of the Guardians to send round the. county collecting subscriptions from those who are not legally liable. The iMayoir said that the Bench had deci- ded that the defendant should be required to pay 6s a week. BAD ATPEMDvANOE AT SCHOOL. Mr T. Walters, Clerk to the Borough Edu cation Committee, ntppcared to prosecute sevenail defaulters. He said the average at- tendance had fallen to a lower ebb in the Borough than it had since the passing of the Elementary Education Act. The result of the bad attendance this year would be a loss of £ 70 to £ 100 in the Government grants At the last meeting there were 23 to 24 de- faulting parents before the Committeee, and it was decided to send some before the magis- trates. The Committee did not wish to say anything which would appear like dictating to the Bench, or to say anything which would be a reflection on the, Bench; but they thought that if there were a little more car- rying out of the law iin its intention, and if e, little more punishment ,were inflicted, it would have the effect of improving the atten- dance at the schools. The. best attendance Was at Quay-street a.nd the Roman Catholic Schools. The iModel School came next. The decrease was very v-reat at the Pentrepoth and the Priory-street School. An attendance order was applied for in the case of William Arundel, Shaw's-lane, whose child attends Pentrepoth school. Defendant said the child went but he missed his mark. The Bench decided to make an attendance order at the school chosen by the defendant. Mr Morgan Griffiths: Would you rather have him go to Pentrepoth? Defendant: I suppose I had better send him to the Roman Catholic School, as he says there are better there. I can see them coming out there when I like. 'Mr Morgan Griffiths: You can choose your own school. He holds no brief for that adhool. Defendant oa.id that he would send all his children to the Roman Catholic School. Attendance orders were made in the cases of the children of William Clarke, Waun- dew-row, and Vaughan Davies, 'Red Lion Yard. T. Thomas, Parcyseiri, was fined 15s; D. Jeremy, Tanerdy, 7s 6d; and Ellen Saun- ders, Parade Cottages, 7s 6d for neglecting to send their children to school. Ellen 6a undo ITS said that she would go to gaol. Mr Morgan 4Griffitlis said that those who did not send their children to sohool were 11 • 1 110 aoing a great wrong to tne onuaren, ItIJlj » great wrong to the oommunity. If the a-ttondance of the children in these cases did not improve the making of an attendance order would 100 but the first step towards taking the children away from their parents.

THE PENDINE WATER SUPPLY. A letter was iread from Mr Shank land offer- ing to look after the water tap6 for the sum of JE1. The Clorft; I take,it. that that means £ 1 per annum. The Chairman: Are you prepared to accept that Mr Benj. Thomas: I snouildthink so. It is 10s less than I told him to put (laughter). NO RISE FOR THE WORKMAN. The following letter, addressed to the Surveyor, was read :— Pantteg, Llanboidy, February 11, 1907. Mr Davies.

A circular from the Local Government Board referred to the spotted fever which has appeajred in several pairta of the Kingdom The Medical Officer said that the fe.er had only appeared in large and populous centres, such as Belfast, Leicester, Glasgow, etc. Dr Thmas said that ihe had two or three cases lately in his own practice. Dr Wilson, of Haverfordwest had had four; and three f the cases had proved fatal. The Medical Officer expressed doubt whe- ther they were really the spotted fever re- ferred to. Dr Thomas sand that they certainly were. In one case there had been the most fearfu. spotted rash he had ever seen. CWMMELES BRIDGE. The Clerk said that he ihad received three sums from the collectors in respect of this bridge-from Messrs John Thomas and Thos. Davies JE7, from Mr W. J. Hughes L3 4s 6d, and from 'Mr John Evans ;Cl is-zcll 15s 6d in all. Mr D. Daviies: Out of la possible P The Clerk: JE60. Ilr D. IDa vies: Or an impossible R60 which- ever you call it. The Clenk was asked to apply for the balance. SANITARY INSPECTOR'S REPORT. The Sanitary Inspector ireported as follows "4th Februarfy. Having received a notice from Dr Willianis that there was a case of diphtheria at Rhosygwirig, LJanddesilio, I visited the place and provided disinfectants, and gave all necessary instructions. 5th February. Owing to a complaint re- ceived from Pendline respecting an alleged overcrowding I had to visit the place. I found two cottages Inl rather a suspicious state. I gave them instructions to see that better arrangements were made respecting spvenal matters in and about the cottages. and that I would inspect them in another fortnight. Greenbnidge NVater Supply: This water supply is in a very unsatisfactory state. The supply is obtained from an open trench lead- ing from a spring, through the middle of a field belonging .0 an adjoining farm. This field is constantly wattefed by the overflow from a pond of water from the farm yard, and iruna into this trench. This water is cortainly dangerous and unfit for dietetic purposes. 13th Fbrfuatry, 1907. Albion House, Whit- land Halviing received a complaint from this tenant respecting a dralin under his back kitchen, I found that this drain has been filled with mud and earth from the surface water irunning into it from the Gardens; the grating being placed within 18 inches of ihe kitchen door is evidently too close to the house, and after every shower of rain the water runs into the kitchen. Twice during the last six months has the kitchen floo- been covered with water three inches deep. 18th Felbruairy. I beg to draw the atten- tion of this Councit to the service lane at the rear of West street, which ds in a most filthy state at present." Dr Thomas asked why the Sanitary Inspec- tor drew their attention to the condition of the lane behind West street. Why did he not proceed against the owners. The Sanitary Inspector sa,id that he wished to have the authority of the Council to do so. Dinning the subsequent discussion it trans- pired that the Inspector had power to serve notice, but not to prosecute without the sanction of the Council. Dr Thomas moved that the Sanitary In- spector be asked in future to serve notices on his own initiative. This was unanimously agreed to. It was decided to take for analysis a sample of the water at Greenbnidge. DANGER NEAR THE TEMPERANCE HOTEL. Mr T. Davies called attention to a danger- ous gutter near the Temperance Hote*. People going to catch trains in the dark might sustain injuries, and then the Council would be liable. The Surveyor: You have passed a resolu- tion to do it next month. Mr T. Davies: In the meantime you may have to pay R,1,000 damages. You may have someone who will stand no nonsense. The Surveyor said that if they gave him the order, he would attend to it at once. Mr T. Davies; They are not like the suffragettes, or they would not put up with it. The Surveyor was directed to attend to the matter immediately. THE HENLLAN SCHOOL. The Rev D. E. Williams attended as the spokesman of a deputation which asked the permission of the Council to lay pipes along- side t-he road to Supply water to Henllan School. He "also suggested that the permis- sion of the Council was probably required in regard to the piece of roadside land on wpliöh the well was to ix,, Dr Thomas! Have you had a water diviner P Rev D. E. Williiaims: We are not going to spend much money there. We are going to do it as cheap as we can. Dr Thomas: Mr Stephens, of Carmarthen, does it,for a guinea. Rev D. E. Williams %id that he believed the piece of roadiyide waste had been used to deposit stones on. The Chairman: In that case we shall have to charge a way leave. Rev D. E. Williams: It is the property of the Cohhcfl.

Agricultural Co-operation in St. Clears District. ADDRESS BY MR WALTER WILLIAMS. On Tuesday afternoon a meeting was held at the Swan Hotel, St. Clears, in connection I; with the co-operative movement. The chair was occupied by Mr John Phillips, Caerlleon. There wore some sixty or seventy persons i present at the meeting, and there were ap- parently a good many more who would have liked to have come ini, but who found that the room was too small. The Chairman, in his opening address, said that (the object of the meeting was to try to form a co-operative association in the dis- trict of St. Clears. Such associations had been formed in Olynderwen, Cardigan, and Cnyirrrmych, iand many other places. He did not see why they should not form one at St. Clears. They, had farmers there who could beat any farmers in the county. If they pulled together they could carry the thing through. He would like to have a branch from Carmarthen started at St. Clears. Then they could afterwards go on their own hook; but they would have to start at the foot of the ladder. He did not know much about it; but4hey had a man there who know aill about it; and he called upon Mr .alter Williams to deliver them an address on co-operation. Mr Walter Williams, the local representa- tive of the Co-operative Organisation Society delivered his address in alternate periods of English and Welsh, which was very necessary as the audience comprised English monoglots from the Laughame district and Welsh monoglots 'from the inland parishes. He said that it seemed to him that the only difficulty was that there was not sufficient elbow room. There were now 32 agriouiltural co-operative societies registered in Wales. He supposed they knew a good deal about co-operation. He must say at the outset that there had been a good deal of misapprehension about the meaning of the word. It had been abused a good deal, and that was the case more or less in the district of St. Clears. Co-opera- tion in itself is democratic government. There is a vast difference between a co- operative society and a joint stock company. A oo-operative society is governed by the members themselves, and the profits go into the pockets of the mienibei-s themselves. A joint stock company is nothing better than a middleman. In the case of a joint stock company you may have shareholders who have in practice nothing to do with the society—who lived perhaps in the furthest part of the county and have nothing to do with the society. That principle had been tried in Carmarthenshire, and had failed, and it was little wonder that it had failed. It is no good anybody joining the depot in St. Clears exoewt he lived in the neighbour- hood and wished to trade with it himself, What was wanted was not the money of the farmer, but loyalty to the cause. Co-opera- tion had been for a considerable time in the air; it must come down, and take root in the ground. It had taken root in Carmarthen; and the Carmarthen Society is an object lesson to them. Before the advent of Mr Brigstocke, who came as a missionary of true and ireal co-operation, they were all more or less in the dark on the subject. They were groping to get into the light; and now in Carmarthenshire they had gpt into the light- He (Mr Williams) had no Ile to grind. He had nothing to gain by anything which they mipjlit do that day. He had nothing to do with the Carmarthen Society. The A,0.8. which he represented is a propagandist body. It is a missionary society; and it iii due to that society that they had come to the light. Mr Btniigsitocke had been the honorary repre- sentative of the Society in Wales. He (Mr Williams) was a representative, but not an honorary one, as he was not so well off. He wished the farmers to understand that by joining they incuiri-ed no liability except the I amount of their shares. Qo-operation, as such, is distributed into two phases, the Dis- brifbutive and the Productive. Carmarthen is an example of a Distributive Society. It is a society formed for the purpose of buying stuff and distributing it amongst the mem- bers. In the case of IVodqctive Co-opera- tion, farmers joined together for the pro- duction of stuff and for the disposal of it. In this part of. the county they were very far back in the matter of the disposal of stuff. They reared good animals, and they turned out good produce; but they were very far 'behind in the disposal of it. The dis- tributing societies had been started because there was gutoh a big trude done in artificial manures; and in agricultural seeds. South Wales had been the dumping ground of bad seeds aishad ibeen disclosed in the report of the Departmental1 Committee appointed by the Government in 1891. Farmers also bought manures 'which were liable to be adulterated. They had proof already that the very name of the Society had done good. The Secetary of the A.O.S. had recently been told by a large dealer that the farmers were now asking for guarantees of purity and genminating power in respect to the seeds which they bought. It was the Co-operative Societies which had educated the farmers up to asking for these things. Very often a farmer wished to have his stuff analysed, but could not take the trouble. The Act required the sample to be taken from three bags of manure which had been emptied on a dry floor and mixed together. They were not in- fallible; but he believed that a co-operative society was a great preventative of fraud. The Co-operative movement amongst the workmen had started as far back as 1844, and had 'now attained large dimensions. The C.W.S. spent- three (millions of money annu- ally in Denmark alone. The Fartners Co- operative organisations were getting into touch with the workmen's societies (the C.W.S.). Last year the oiynderwen Far- mers Society sold to the C.W.S., butter to the value of £1,3tH; the LLanybyther society to the value of £ 850; the Llandyssul Society £ 500; and the Oardiigan Society to the ex- tent of several thousands. It had been proved now that tuberculosis (consumption) could be communicated from the cow to man, and legislation to protect the consumer of milk was predicted in the near future. The oounty would be over-run with veterinary 9urgeons and inspectors. Many cows would be ordered to be slaughtered; the owners would get compensation, and it is just in respect to that, that a co-operative society would be of use. This movement had orig- inated in St. Clears, as several members from the district had come to Carmarthen and had asked that a start should be made liere. There were three oourses which might be "adopted. They might have an indepen- dent society, a society affiliated to the Car- marthen Society, or they might have a branch of the Cafrtmarthen Society at St. Clears. It wais the last mentioned course which they had chosen to adopt. He be- lieved that there was a difficulty as to gett- ing a store; but he believed negotiations nere proceeding with the G.W.R. Co., and he believed that there would be a depot on the railway premises. That was a matter for future discussion. Mr Harries, PeniWch, said that he was very glad that the movement was going ahead. With a long pull and a strong pull find a pull altogether they would succeed. What was the most important thing was loyalty (ffyddlondeb). It would not succeed if they were "Shon bob ffordd"-takixig a share in the society and then purchasing from the merchants. In answer to a question, it was stated that there were 17 members from St. Clears in the Carmarthen Sooiety. Mr John Williams, Penlan, asked what were the (kind of goods disposed of at Car- marthen. Mr W. Williams mentioned various kinds of seeds, feeding stuffs, and manures. He believed that there was also a little done in implements. A question was asked as to the prices which the Society changed at Carmarthen. Mr W. Williams said that that would be to divulge the business of the society. It was not advisable to state the prices. If the prices were stated, it would create a revolu- tion in the district. Mr John Lewis, manager of the Carmar- then Society, said that the fact that the society was able to succeed in Carmarthen, where there is so much competition, proved that the prices were favourable. Mr J. Stone Thomas asked if the Society was confined to farmers. The answer was that it was confined to farmers and labourers. There were a few carpenters and iblacksmiths in the pociety. Mr J. Stone Thomas: Any butchers? Mr J. Lewis; No. Mr J. S. Thomas: You do not want trades- men at all. Mr W. Williams: We do not object to any- body. The Chairman said that the society only sold to those who would consume the stuff themselves—not to those who would sell it. Mr J. Stone Thomas: I cannot eat the stuff myself. The laughter which followed this remark interrupted the. proceedings for some time. Mr John Williams asked ,about the society supplying coal and lime. Mr John Lewis said that tihe society had not been able yet to do anything in that line. But they hoped to do so. Mr Raymond; I can supply you with lime (,I:aughter).. Mr J. Stone Thomas: But can we get it from Mr Raymond at the lowest price. The Chairman stated that farmers having over 80 acres took a RI share at Carmar- then under 80 aeries, 10s; labourers, 5s. Several members were enrolled; and it was agreed that the following gentlemen be empowered to enrol memlbers in their respec- tive districts :—Mr Morse, Maesgwrda, Laugharne; Mr Thomas, Bwlchgwynt, My- drim; Mr Howells, Cefncloch, Trelech; Mr Salmon, Blaenpant, Llanginning; and Mr Harries, Penwoh, St. Cleans.
No Difference. OLD PEOPLE JUST AS HAPPY AS YOUNG. Age cannot wither nor custom stale the infinite variety of life. When the right food makes one new each day there seems as mudh simple happiness when one is old I when young, but bounding health -is the requisite, and right food pro- duces that. A iliappy woman of seventy-seven tells her experience, "For three years," she stays, "I was greatly troubled with a nervous affection of the stomach, which at last brought me to such a condition that I could neither eat nor sleep with any sort of comfort. I grew very de- spondent, and felt that my hold on life was very uncertain. It was difficult for me to find food that I could digest. My doctor kept me on a dtet of irice for a. tang time, but it did not seem to give me any strength. "I (",m glad that at last I decided to try Grape-N nts food, for it has done a wonder- ful work for me. Before I had used up the first package I bega;n to take a new interest in life, and I rapidly inoresed in health and Grape-Nuts food fpr it has done strength. My Htomaoh has regained its nor- mal tone, and in the two years that Grape- Nuts has 'been imy only food I have not had a sick day. I am seventy-seven years old, and Grape-Nuts has rest-ored to me the pleasure of living. I am sorry I did not begin sooner to use it. I cannot praise it too highly.

Carmarthenshire Main Roads j Committee. A meeting of the Carmarthenshire Main Roads and Bridges Committee of the County Council was held at the Carmarthen Guild- hall on Wednesday. There were present: Mr W. N. Jones, Tirydail (in the chair); Mr R. W..Stephens, Coedybrain; Mr W. Joneb, Llandilo; Mr D. Davies, Llanlebie; Mr 11 L. Jones, Deiiwyn; Mr John Williams, Pen- lan Mr Greville, Llannon; Mr C. E. Morris, Carmarthen; Mr T. Thomas, Llangennech Mr John Johns, Parceithin; Mr W. Thomas, Trelech; Mr D. Stephens, Kidwelly; Mr J. Rees, Dolgwm; Mr James Phillips, St. Clears; Mr R. Evans, Laughame; Rev D. D. Walters, Newcastle Emlyn; Mr John Lloyd, Penybank; Mr H. J. Thomas, Pen- rhos-uchaf; Mr D. J. Harries, Penllwyne; Air D. L. Jones, Derlwyn; Col. Lewes, Llys- newydd; Mr J. Lloyd Thomas, Tanlan; and Professor D. E. Jones, Carmarthen; too- ther with the Clerk (Mr J. W. Nicholas; aoi the Surveyor (Mr C. H. Mounsey). SICK PAY. A discussion arose over the payment of Mr Daniel Morgan, a road inspector, who has been ill for some time. The Surveyor sqpd that Mr Morgan ftad been in his office the previous day. It was not likely that he would be able to com- mence his work until next week. Mr John Johns said that they must take care of the interests of the ratepayers. lie proposed that the inspector be paid only lor a month, and that he should not be paid lor the month of February. Mr John Williams: He has been paid. Mr J. Johns: You can be lenient with your own money, but not with the money of the ratepayers.. Mr W. Thomas seconded Mr J. John a proposal. The Treasurer's Clerk was called in, ^md said that the cheque for the salary for Fat>. had been. sent to Mr Morgan on the 4th of March. Mr W. Jones moved that they do not ask M Morgan to refund the money. t Mr J. John said that this favouritism was a most shameful thing. Not long ago this inspector had two months' salary when he was ill before. He had a club, and was better off than other people. It was decided by 11 votes to six to allow the siix weeeks salary.—It was agreed that in future only a month's salary should be paid in such cases. THE DANGEROUS QUARRY. The Surveyor reported that the old un- fenced quarry of which complaint was made by the Ciffig Parish Council, was not as dangerous as many which were on the Main Roads.-Nothing was done in the matter. THE TRASHING OF HEDGES. Mr James Phitlips raised a discussion re- garding the notices served on the farmers to trash the hedges. The Olerk said that the opinion they had was that it was illegal for the Council's men to do -it. Mr James Phillips said that the men had done it until lately. Mr J. Johns said that he thought the barrister had misunderstood the case. The question ready referred not to the cutting of the top of the hedge, but to trashing the sides. The matter was left in abeyance for the Clerk to look it up.

COTHI BRIDGE. THE WELSH DERBY.—The first general meeting of the Cothi Bridge Agricultural Society, under whose auspices the famous "Welsh Derby" is run, was held on Friday evening last at Cothi Bridge, when there was a goou attendance. It was unanimously decided to invite Miss Bath, AUtyferin, to become the president of the society for the present year. Mr H. T. Davies, Castle- howell, who has been a strong supporter of the show since its inception nine years ago, was elected chairman of the society, while the treasurer (Mr J. J. Rees, Llwynfortune) and that very excellent official, the secretary (lr T. Enwnent Thomas, Monachty), were re-elected amidst acclamation. It was de- cided to hold the show on Thursday, the 13th June next. Those interested in the show will be delighted to he air that Miss Bath has accepted the committee's invitation, and, given a fine day, there can be no doubt that this popular young lady will lead them to bigger things than last year, when a record was established. There is an apt fitness of things in Miss Bath occupying the presiden- tial thair, as the Squire and family of AUty- ferin took a keen interest in the organisa- tion of the society, and have helped consider- ably in bringing the Welsh Derby up to its present great success and popularity, LLANWINIO, DEATHS.—On Thursday the 28th ult., Mrs Anne Evans, PencraAg, passed away after a few weeks' illness.

For that matter he could have afforded to, pay his own expenses. He had spent some years in council and committtoo meetings, and had spent many a £ 22 2s 7d out of his own pocket, which his opponents took care not to mention. ELECTION TO-DAY. The election "takes place to-day (Friday). ALLTYFERJX. ANNUAL SUPPER.-On Thursdav, February 28th, Mr Bath gave his annual supper to the choir of .Holy Trinlity Church, at the Concert Hall, Alltyferin, when over 30 sat down to two tables well laden with the best of every- thing, as is always the custom at all gather- ings at Alltyferin. After all had enjoyed themselves at the tables, the tables were cleared away to imake the room into a con- cert room, and the choir is veiy proud to be the first to occupy the new chairs that have been provided for the Hall, chairs were put in position, and the public began to arrive, Amongst others we noticed Mrs and Miss Thomas, the Vicarage; Miss Bath, Miss Allard, and Miss Francis. The Rev E. Thomas (Vicar) was the chairman, and with the programme in his hand, mentioned that he was quite pleased to preside over the con- cert, and that it was a great honour to do so. All that took pa.rt in the entertainment were members of the choir, and each one did their part remarkably well; the pianoforte solos given by Miss Nana Davies and Miss Sally Lloyd were exceedingly well-rendered; also the recitations and pa,rt songs by the Voung Ibovs and girls of the choir. It is quite evident that the older members miust awaken else the younger ones will soon beat them. At the end of the program s the Vicar spoke about the good work of Miss Bath, not only as organist, but also in. other good work in the parish, and mentioned the loss they would sustain, and alluded to the approach- I ing wedding of Miss Bath. Miss Bath re- turned thanks f or the kind remarks, and said that she would never forget the people of Llanegwad. Thie National Anthem was then sung, the solo being taken by Mr J. Thomas, Cothii Bridge, when another plea- sant evening was brought to a close.
