Pontygwaith Pottage. Once more we have to appeal, to the Brachi-opods (see Dictionary) to refrain from causing obstructions on the pave- ment. Such sights are characteristic of an East End pub. Judging from the amount of time some of the Brachi-opods spend in the neigh- bourhood of the ice-cream shop, they ought to be well adapted to undertake an expedition to the Pole. We re-echo our appeal that some steps should be taken towards the formation of a Library and Institute anything where young people could spend their time more profitably than in an ice-cream shop. You are mistaken, sir. The "cooing" does not come from the Pontygwaith Young Musicians, but from the pigeons' cot in the neighbourhood of your house. This week, another traveller has been interviewed. He says that certain parts of Llewellyn Street resemble a street in San Francisco after the great earthquake. The same traveller it was who mistook the station for Paddington. We respectfully inform young M- that we have heard quite enough of his summer holiday adventures, to which we have listened with interest second only to the story of Tom Thumb or Jack and the Beanstalk." He reminds one of that old rhyme: It On the first day we had bread and dripping, On the next day we had dripping and bread, On the third day we had dripping and toast; Well, that's only dripping and bread." On reading our Limerick last week, one gentle reader exclaimed, What a fall was there, my countrymen! (Shakes- peare). How are the mighty fallen," quoth another. In the centre of a field not a thousand miles from Pontygwaith is the following sign —" Anyone found trespassing in this field will be prosecuted." The sign arouses curiosity, and many people go into the field to read it.
