Porth Jottings. A deputation has been appointed by the Perth Labour Council to interview Mr. Nesbitt, the tramway manager, with a view of obtaining reduced fa.res for children. As things are at present, children are charged full fare, even though not'occupy- ing a. seat. Why should a person nurse a child, though someone else may be standing un, when they are charged full fare for the; child. We hope Mr. Nesbitt will con- sider the convenience of the public in this matter. Perhaps Mr. Nesbitt will also do a little for Trehafod people in another complaint. --+-- The drivers will very seldom stop the car to pick up passengers between Britannia and Trehafod. Should any of the authorities doubt the veracity of the above complaint, they have but to take a walk in that direction some evening, and they will soon be con- vinced. -+-0"- Talking of cars and conductors, the following bull is very good, we think. j. -+-- Yes," exclaimed the knowing con- ductor, 'tis strange how these pulleys push the- cars up- hills and around turns."
Ton Talk. The youngsters of Ton were delighted with the recent fall, and rose to the o<?ca- sion bv thoroughly enjoying- themsdveF7 on slides in the streets. It did one good to watch them. How they legged it ii-lieii the arm of the law appeared on the scene* The Rhondda international. Ton and Cwmparc, failed to come off at Mid- Rhondda on Saturday owing to the inclemency of the weather. The respected secretary of the Ton team feels rather vexed over the fact that the snow pre- vented the game being played. This is very Chilling-Ton!! --+-- There was a good rally of Sociaists at Mr. Musgrave Reade's lecture on From Socialism to the Kingdom of God," last week. Things looked rather stormy at the close, when numerous questions were showered upon the speaker. This is the Lenten season, and the members of the Salvation Army are busy pursuing their noble work in the district. We sincerely trust a good amount will be "lent" before the season is over. The lecture on behalf of the Religious Tract Society at Hebron this week was very well attended. The subject was The Land of Sinim." Next week, Mr. Levi has been engaged by the Lib.-Lab. League to address a meeting upon Land Reform."
Treherbert Tags. Those who read a contemporary for last Tuesday could have noticed the following headlines on the same page and almost ( in a line:—Grim Alternative," and Old Maids and Old Cats." --+-- We trust that the above has nothing to do with the fact that young ladies of Treherbert seem to be offering: them- selves for sale of late? What offers gentle- men? No Suffragettes kept in stock.

Pentre Pellets. We have previously heard of bulls in ina shops, and of a John Hodge driving is horse and cart into the hedge; but It is rather a new and exciting experi- ence to be inside an electric tramcar which, is making its way towards c, Hodges' shop. This might be called a "moving spectacle." Pentre is a queer place. "The Bee- hive is a draper's shop, and so is The Bazaar"; and "The Golden, Key is a valuable grocery stores., There is a "Macintosh" who prefers n u -ther, a Coole for a. hot shave, T and a watchmaker i»add."

We know of one young man who has denied himself of work for this period, in order that he might save his washing bill. What price his language next pay-day? The gentleman who took the chair" at one of our local drawing rooms," states that, although it pained him to attend, he found everything quite toothsome and attractive. The secretary of a recent presenta- tion movement must remember that he is creating a bad precedent by spending several hours practising handwriting—his own name, of course—so that it would appear to be easily the beo4 on the addre&si presented.
Ferndale Filterings. With the aid of Ferndale coal, the "Mauretania" has broken the record. -+-- "Forethought," in a contemporary, says that Ferndale coal is the best in the world. Floreat Ferndale! It may not be common knowledge that Ferndale coal was mainly used by the Japs in the Russo-Japanese War. A word of cheer to the inhabitants of New Street. The Council has at last decided to attend to the road, and the quagmire will shortly be a thing of the past. Pryd mae'r dram nesa' yn myn'd lawr? was the query with which an old lady greeted us on the Strand last Satur- day night. We do not like to appear rudeý else we should have replied, Gofynwch i'r rider." Irate assistants are seeking the blood of the atrocious punster who described the recent social evening the Co- operative Employees' Asst >, as a Co-hop affair,
Ystrad Yaps. Judging from the amount of mustard used down here, we should shortly have a. rise in temperature. Some people are actually Keen on I putting "mustard" piasters to their faces. They must be ret^hot believers in its powers. We are pleased to note that the wrapper contained a Leader last week.

Tylcrstown Topics. An excellent paper on Socialism was lead at Horeb 011 VVeunesdav evening, bv Mr. Stephen Jones. b Mr. D. Middleton. C.C.M., read all interesting paper on "Safety Lamps," at the Council Schools on Saturday even- ing. Mr. D. Griffiths, M.E., was chair- man. These meetings are held under the auspices of the Tylorsiowa mining. students. Our hearty congratulations to Miss Mabel James, the popular local soprano, on her securing the prize at Hermon com- petitive meeting last week. Miss James is a pupil of Mr E. T. Davies, F.R.C.O., Dowiais. What's the joke? A certain young man is seen parading the streets in disgliise playing an oboe. A well-known medical doctor in the district was asked by a friend what was the best prescription for a cold. The man of physic coollv recommended the following Get on top of a. tram- car on a cold niwht, and get it blo-wn off."
Tynewydd Tits. A prize was given last Monday evening for an impromptu speech on 'How to keep a Secret," at a local chapel. --+- One gentleman went up and sinjplv shut his mouth as tightly as possible. Never a syllable did he utter. Strange to say, he won the prize for an impromptu speech." Was it not impromptu silence? The greatest objection we have to this is that the adjudicator lowered the market value of silence. We are often told that speech is silvern, and silence iq golden. But the wilder of this competition only had silver for his silence. — 111 11 i—. We hope the party in Blaenrhondda that betted so heavily on the race the other Saturday, will learn by their ex- periences and be wise. Poor things, they had to "fast" over Sunday. -+-0- Congratulations to the two young men selected by the Fornhill workmen to represent them at the conference for deciding the site of the local hospital. --+- We are sorry tor the young man who unwittingly disturbed two pail's of happy lovers the other Sunday night. But there! it's no use warning some people. They will stick in doorways.
Maesteg. JaJIeefcion^—G/iieatf excitement prevails in the district over the forthcoming elec- tions, and it is expected there will be a fight in every Ward. The following are the retiring members: -Cae.rnu Ward, Messrs. Thomas Griffitlis and John Edmnnds; NantyfFyllon Ward, Messrs. John Roderick and Thomas Lewis East Ward, Messrs. Gomer Davies and John Thomas; and West Ward, Messrs. J. H. Thomas, J.P., and John Bevan. We understand the Labour Party intend con- testing every Ward. Social.—On Wednesday of last week, a very interesting social was held at the English Congregational Church, Maes- teg, under theausnices of the Mutual Improvement Society of that chapel. After tea., a miscellaneous entertainment was held and a very enjoyable evening was passed. The secretarial duties were in the hands of Mr. Janson M. Griffiths. Town Hall Theatre. Battersby and Forbes' company occupied the boards at this theatre last week with The Empty Cradle." There was a splendid house every night. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday this week, Mr. Stephen Pritt's repertoire company will visit this theatre

Our local scientist is trying to find out wily drunken people see double. After this, may wo suggest that he should try and find out why some of them can't see at all | Is the individual who stole a roll of towelling from a draper's shop in Bute Street preparing; for the strike? Or had he at last realised that he was in urgent i need of a wash ? If the former, we are not much j. "struck" with the kind of goods he selected; and if the latter, was it not soapy to have thought of washing in the river?—to which place he resorted. 1 It must here be stated (to explain matters, perhaps) that a certain member of an audience which listened to a paper against Socialism this week had received orders from the local Socialist head- quarters to wipei the floor with the speaker. --+- We always said that Socialists were revolutionists. Fancy wanting to use an opponent as a, duster or n, floor-cloth That's the rub of Socialism. Treherbe.rt N.U. will meet Merthyr in a Welsh League encounter at Treherbert on Saturday. We trust it will not be p. runaway match for Merthyr. The remain- ing six' fixtures with Treherbert for this season are all Welsh Leagues. --+-- A young man complains of his ill-lurk As soon as he had accumulated all the money he wanted, the alarm clock woke him up. Yet, life is not an empty dream. Scripture lesson. Teacher: "Now. Tommy, who made the milky way in the sky? Tommy: Pleage, sir, the cow that jumped over the moon."
