St. Clears Notes.


St. Clears Notes. The members of Trinity C.M. Chanel had a social evening on Thursday, the 23rd mst., The 'social' was got up for the purpose of brin«nni«- the different members into closer touch with each other. The preliminary part was in the children and adults joinang to- gether in a pleasant cup of tea in the vestry, which was followed by a programme of music etc., whidv was presided over by the pastor (Rev J. E. Thomas). The evening passed off very pleasantly all present feeling that the object of the meeting had, to a very large extent, been attained. The thanks of all members are due to those ladies who had provided so bountcfudy and attended so assiduously to the wants of those present. **# The friends, at Gapel Mair have decided to hold their annual Easter Monday eisteddfod again this year as usual, and have, so we are given to UlnderSltand prepared a more attrac- tive pi-ogramime than they have hitherto done which means of course, that the standard will be very high. The prizes for competitors competing in the various solos are unusually large for 11ural districts and should be the means of attracting singers from outside the immediate locality. The president for the occasion will be Mr W. N. Evans, The Parade Carmarthen, while the adjudicators are well known throughout South Wales for their ability and impartiality. The conductor for the day is that versatile individual known as "Brynach.' We very much regret that the Rev. D. Cadfwlch Davies, the popular pastor of Capel Mair Independent Chapel has for some time past been confined to his bed by illness. We are very glad to find that he is now fairly on the road to recovery and we wish him, most heartily, a speedy return to good health. 11* At a meeting of the Town Trust held at the Town Hall on Thursday, the 23rd inst. (Mr H. Lyons presiding), it was decided that two exhibitions, each of the yearly value of t4, be given this year to children and natives of St. Clears and that the Chairman and Vice- Chairman (Air T T. Lloyd) be asked to draft out a scheme subject to the approval of the Trustees. The annual general meeting of the share- holders of the St. Clears Market Co. was held at the Court House, St. Olears, on Thurs day afternoon, the 16th inst. Mr W. Beynon, chairman of the Directors, read the state- ment of affairs which on the whole, was prom ising and satisfactory. No dividend was declared for the year, inasmuch as extra expen-es had to be met in making an auction ring .and in filling up the centre part of the inner yard with stones, which will niateiialily add to to the comfort of those attending the market. It should be stated that the Company only commenced cQUectilng tolls from last June, and therefore, it was hardly to be expected that a dividend could be declared for the past year. Future years should prove satis- factory to all concerned. # Mr Lewis Rogers, Blaengors, was unani- mously elected a director in place of Mr J. Phillips, C.C., who stood aside in order that another farmer should be placed on the Direc torate to voice the opinions of his class. It was further agreed that fortnightly markets be held from June next and contin ued until December. This should prove of great service to the farmers, as they can then be sure of getting the best Market price. Mr H. Lyons, Green Meadow, and Mr B. Salmon L'.antginning, wore re-elected auditors, while the Secretary's salary was increased in recog nition of his very valuable services he had rendered to the Company. Votes of thanks to the Directors and offic iials closed the meet- ing. A Benefit Concert will be given at the LIall d do wror National School on Tuesday, Feb- ruary 4th, St. Clears Monthly Market Day, in aid of the widow of the late Mr Fred Court All the best local artistes have promised to assist, and as the cause is a most deserving one, we hope that the Concert will be a pro- nounced success. Mrs R. M. Thomas, will take the chair at 7 p.m. • «* With regard to the above death a story his born circulated that the deceased (Mr Frecl Court) was neglected by the guardian cf his parish (Mr J. Bedford) and we wish mc --t emphatically to contradict such a mali- cious and untrue rumour. The guardian and the decoased's employer ruid neighbours, one n "da 11, treated him in a most generous man- ner, and every thing that could be done to f) rebate his. sufferings and wants was done. We 110pethat this will be the means of put- ting a stop, once and for all to the rumour.
