A letter was read from the secretary of the Bath and West of England show, thanking the Carmar- thenshire Education Committee for sending a col- lection of Nature Study Exhibits to the show, und stating that there had added greatly to the interest of the -how, antT were much appreciated by the visitors. PUPIL TEACHERS SYSTEM. A sub-coyimittec which had considered ilie aù- visability of appointing pupil teachers in the county, recommended that elementary school teachers be al- lowed to train pupil teachers, and that the com- mittee should consider the question of establishing centres where the necessity arose. Mr. John Lloyd, Penybank, said the elementary teacher was an expensive luxury in the county, and if young men were going to be trained for the pro- fession they should get the best men to do so. That could be done very much better at the centre. The recommendation was going back to a system which prevailed in the county thirty or forty years ogo, when pupil teachers had to meet the masters at seven o'clock in the morning. He questioned very much whether teachers of the present, day were pre- pared to get up at seven o'clock in the morning to teach young men who wished to go in for the pro- fession. It would be1 more satisfactory to resusci- tate old pupil teachers' centres. .on the motion of Mrs. Lloyd, Llanelly. a resolu- tion was pawed in favour of resuscitating the sys- tem of pupil teachers' centres, and the iclerk was directed to submit a report on the matter. ./(STRICT NURSES AND SCHOOLS. A letter was received from Laclv St. Davids en- closing a resolution passed by the Carmarthen Dis- trict Committee of the South Wales Nursing Associ- ation. asking the committee to employ district nurses for school inspection where possible. The matter was referred to the Finance Com- mittee. BRYNAMMAN DISPUTE. A deputation appeared before the committee in support of a petition made by the ratepayers of Rhosaman and Cwmgarw for a new school at Cwm- garw. The Clerk explained that the committee had just purohased a ground for a new infants' school at Brynamman, a mile away. Notice of their inten- tion to do so was advertised for three months and objections invited but none were made. The Rer. A. Fuller Mills said there was a local dispute, and it was a pity that the people in the lo-ality did not settle it before coming there. Mr. W. J. William-. Brynamman, said a school was wanted at "Cwmgarw in addition to the one to be built at Brynamman. A committee was appointed to inquire into the matter. APPOINTMENTS.

GWMAMMAN URBAN DISTRICT COUNCIL A special meeting of the Cwmamman Council was held at Bethesda Chapel on Wednesday night in last week, when Mr. 'l'hOti. Thomas presided. Tho^e present were Messrs. J. Rees, T. Morris, Roger Thomas, Dd. Jones, W. A. Hay, Arthur Williams, WIll. Roberts, J. R. Thomas, Hv. Folland, T. A. Morris, T. J. Hay, and the Rev. Win. Willkims, and R-ev. J. Thomas; also the clerk (Mr. W. M. Knovle), surveyor (Mr. G. H. Davies) and the rate collector (Mr. 0. Phillips). Discussion arose over the clogging of water pipes at, Evans'-terrace by erosion. krvc The Surveyor reported that it would be necessary to take the lead piping and lay fresh pipes, which he estimated would oo.st L14, and further with a view to avoiding future clogging it would be neces- sary to have a free circulation of water, and the latter item, entailing, as it did, the layng of a 3-inch pipe orer a di&tance of 130 yards, would cost about £ 70. It was intimated by Mr. Arthur Williams that Mr. Wm. John, plumber, Ammanford, was prepared to clean out the lead piping at a reasonable price, and that provided the work was not satisfac- torily done would require no payment at all. It was eventually decided to offer Mr. Wm. Jwhn £ 10 for the work provided it be done to the satisfac- tion of the Council's surveyor. The Lighting Committee recommended tk: the Clerk and Surveyor be instructed to prepare II con- tract with Mr. James Fuller, whom it had been decided should receive the work of the erection of the street plant for public, lighting, and also with the gas company who have agreed to supply gas in bulk. The recommendation was adopted, and the Clerk intimated that Messrs. J. Phillips and Co. had negotiated the loans necessary with the Raven Steel and Tinplate Co. at 5 per cent, per annum. It was explained that the rate of interest was fixed higher than usual on account of the smallness of the loan and the. limited period of repayment. A communication from the Road Board in refer- ence to the classification of roads Was referred to the Surveyor. Mr. Thos. Morris suggested that the road from Glanamiuan to the Black Mountain be classified its a second-class road, with a view, in the future, of having a grant towards its maintenance. Tenders were received for the laying of water pipes from Twyn to Derwydd, as follows:—James Fuller, JB27 10s.: and Dd. Thomas, Garnant. JB28 9s. bd. The firmer tender was accepted. The Council resolved into committee to consider applications for the post of engineer to the sub- sidiary S('W('1'¡¡ge scheme. Out of 23 applicants Mr. J. O. Parry, Ammanford. was appointed at the terms of 4 per cent, (inclusive of quantities) plus E52 10s.

WELSH MUSICIANS IN COURT WHOSE HYMN TUNE? MR. CYRIL JENKINS SUED. On Tuesday, at the Aberavon County Court, be- fore Judge Lloyd Morgan, a case was heard which is of great interest to music-lovers. Mr. A'fan Thomas, Cwmavon, claimed £ 1 nominal damages from Mr. Cyril Jenkins, tho well-known musical composer, for tho alleged infringement of the copy- right of a hymn tune.—"Spes,"—which plaintiff alleged to have composed himself. Plaintiff also asked for an injunction to restrain defendant from further publishing any of plaintiff's tunes. Mr- Moses Thomas, Aberavon, al)peared for plaintiff, and Mr. Ivor Parry, of Pontypridd, for defendant. —Mr. D. Avan Thomas, the plaintiff, said that hót lived at Cwmavon and had been organist of the Congregational Chapel at Briton Ferry for the last ten years. The whole of his time had been given to music teaching, and he had competed at several National Eisteddfodau, and won many prizes. At Christmas, 1906, he s« nt a rune named "Spes" to tho Morriston Eisteddfod rnr competition, when Mr. Harry Evans and Dr. .v.ghan Thomas were the adjudicators. The tunc he sent took the prize. Since then that tune had been included in the pro- grammes of many "cymanfaoedd ganu," and was produced at Cwmavon in 1908, where he (plaintiff) was the conductor. In 1912 it was again included in the Cwmavon programme, when the defendant was the conductor, and later in 1913 at Dunvant.— Mr. Thomas: Was it brought to your notice that the tune "Spes" was produced at Crwys in May, 1913. under the name of "Dunvant" by Mr. Cyril Jenkins? Yes.—Is that identical with your tune? Yes, every .note.—Is there any alteration of any notes? No, not the slightest. The tuno in the Crwys programme under he name of "Ðunvant" was exactly the same as "Spes.At this stage the Judge remarked that he was in a difficult position 811 he knew nothing whatever of music (laughter).— Mr. Thomas (to plaintiff): Was your permission obtained for the publication of this tune? No.— It was usual, said plaintiff, for the committee of a I cymanfa to ask conductors to submit tunes and to include some of their own tunes in the list. His I consent had always been obtained when his own tunr^ were used.—Cross-examined by Mr. Parry, plaintiff said he agreed that common hynm tunes were usually used free in the festival programmes, but where special hymns were used a charge was usually made of about 3s. 6d. He agreed that it was the business of the committee to obtain per- mission from the authors of hymn tunes to include them in the programmes. He believed that the committee agreed to the selection of the tunes by Mr. Cyril Jenkins.—The Judge: Does the defen- dant suggest that the tune in question is his own composition.—Mr. Parry: Yes.—Mr. Parry: Do you agree with me that his (Mr. Jenkins's) com- positions rank very high?—Plaintiff: No, they are quite ordinary.—Mr. Parry: You know that he has acted as adjudicator at many eisteddfodau, and that he has been selected as adjudicator at the next National Eisteddfod.—Witness Yo.>.—Mr. Parry: Do you regard that as an important position in the musical world?—Plaint fT: No. I don't.—H*r. Parry: You know that he 13 prizes at National Eiftrddfodau? Yes. <III know that his work'- have been performed at the Blackpool festival and at Bristol and Leed. Yes.—Mr. David Bowen, secretary of the Cnvys "Cymanfa Ganu" of 1912, said that four churches took part in that festival, and there were about 1..000 people present. They printed 1.100 programmes. He invited Mr. Cyril Jenkins in August to act as the conductor. In September of that year Mr. Jenkins wrote him asking him to include "Vrojigocb" and "Dunvant" tunes in their programme. The copy of the tune "Dunvant" (produced) was sent him by Mr. Jen- kins. The top part. where the author's name was usually placed was cut off I i(i there was an alteration in the word Dunvant. He submitted a copy of the programme to Mr. Jenkins after it was 11rintea. By Mr. Thomas: Witness did not write to Air. Jenkins saying that he had made a mistake in putting his name down as the author of the tune. Mr. Jenkins did not apologise for putting the wrong, name at the top of the tune, and no explanation was given about, it. He received a letter from Mr. Jenkins on II December 29th, 1913. as follows:—"Dear Mr. Bowen,-I find that Mr. D. Afan -nomas's tune, "Spes," is almost identical with "Morfydd." writ- ten four years ago for competition, and which I have now christened '"Dunvant." I can only sug- gest that you approve of the tune. I like his tuno "Y rongoch." and recommend it for your festival." C ndN further cross-examination by Mr. Parry, witness said he did not ask Mr. Jenkins if the tune was his own composition. He took it for granted that he would not have sent on a tune that was not his own. Mr. Afan Thomas was not present at that cymanfa. He believed that the tunes "Spes" and "Dunvant" were one and the same. He had nf-vcr seen tunes sent 011 with the names of author's unless if. was the author's own composi- tion. Mr. D. Afan Thomas (re-called) said that his tune was first published in 1908. He claimed that it was quite original.—Mr. Parry: Do you know the tune of Goetz's "Stabat Mater"?— Plaintiff: I have heard of Goetz, of course, but I don't know his "Stabat Mater."—Mr. Parry: Do you consider that there is any resemblance between the opening notes of Goetz's work and this? No, I don't.—For the defence Mr. Cyril Jenkins was called. He said he lived at Upper Bedford-place, Russell-square. London, and was a native of Cilfyn ydd. He had been engaged in musical compositions for several years and had been successful at Na- tional Eisteddfodau for many years. He had been selected as one of the adjudicators for tno next National Eisteddfod. Several of his works had been performed at various places. He also con- tributed to several musical papers and had acted as musical advisor to many papers, and he had an agreement with Messrs. Curwen and Co. for five years to produce the whole of his choral works.— Mr. Parry: Look at this tune "Dunvant." Do you claim ihe authorship of that tune?—Mr. Jen- kins: Yes. 1 claim it as mine. I went to Treorehy as organist and choirmaster in 1908 and I composed that then. Mr. Jenkins added, they all try to write some tunes when they become organists and put some chords together. That was the usual custom of anyone with hope. He had never seen a similar tune written by anyone before that. He acted as conductor at Cwmavon in 1912, and ho then ilaw 011 the 2>ro-ramme the tune "Spes" under the mime of plaintiff and he at once recognised the tune. Mr. Afan Thomas was not present and he had never seen him until that day. He said nothing to anyone at Cwmavon about the time in question. lfq published the tune "Dunvant" about June, 1909. and it was printed by a Mr. Woodliffe at Treorehy. and 50 copies were published and it was then included in the Welsh Congregational Hymn Book. No. 562. He agreed that the hymns "Spes" and "Dunvant" were practically alike, but he had not examined "Spes" thoroughly until tho present action was taken. He would not say that eithfr tune was original.—Mr. Thomas: Do you allow the letters F.R..C.O. to go behind your name?—No answer.—At this cymanfa ganu your name appears with the letter- F.R.C.O.?—Defendant smiled, and Mr. Thomas remarked. "You need not smil.e Hatve you used titles to which you were not entitled?'"—Defendant: No. The F.R.C.O was not used at my request.—Mr. Thomas: Do you think it was nice to go from one cymanfa to ¡ another with the name of F.R.C.O. without attain- ing it?—Defendant: I don' know. It was nothing I to my reputation.—Mr. Thomas: You would be very glad to get it, wouldn't you?—Defendant: No.—Mr. Thomas: You have failed to pass the examinations.—Dffendant: I have never triced to.- M>\ Ilafcdcn; Woodliffe. printer. Treoetfhy, pro- duced his books, showing that he printed a tune (562) for the defendant in 1908.—Mr. Ll. Davies, schoolmaster, Pentre. and Mr. Aneurin Jenkins, brother of the defendant, also gave evidence.—The Judge said that he would like to hear something as regards the Morriston Eisteddfod. As far as the publication was concerned he thought there was nr ease against the defendant.—Eventually the case ■was adjourned. -——

iiiOJvl THE CARMARTHEN J-OL'RNAL." 1_, FRIDAY, j INK IV, 1814. The Rev. John Taylor, son of Thos. Taylor, E.sq., Merchant, of this place, has lately been presented to the Living of Imber, in the county of Wilts, by the most noble the Marquis of Bath. That delightful and popular Watering place, Aberystwyth, boasts already a distinguished assemblage of fashionables. The masons and labourers, now in the employ of Mr. Jenkins, builder, in erecting a new criminal gaol for the county of Carmartlien, discovered a lew days ago a dungeon, or large condemned cell, immediately under that part of the prison, in which the criminals were lately confined. It con- tained an immense pillar of wood, to which, we apprehend, the convicts were chained, two large iron window bars, and several human bones. We regret mat the following communication, reflecting the highest credit on Wel-h seminaries, did not arrive in time for insertion in our last paper. It must be gratifying ro Welshmen to witness the rapid growth and judicious cultiva- tion of native talent, which occasionally come under their notice in the Principality, and which has been lately demonstrated by the distinguished Micevss with which Air. John Williams, son of the Rev. J. Williams, Master of Istradrneiric School, and Mr. Robert Williams, son of the Rev. Mr. William. Master of Cowbridge School, passed 1 heir examinations at Oxford; the former vhis Term, the latter in that of Michaelmas last. Each of these young gentlemen had to compete with numbers, of which, however, five or "ix only were equally successful with themselves. A Circular has been issued from the War Offi. ordering that. from the 25th inst., only one Ser- jeant to every two companies of the Local Militia, exclusive of the serjeant-major, shall receive full pay. At our fair. on Friday last, there was an un- usually large number of horses and horned cattle, but they were generally on the decline in price, and but. few purchasers. The pig fair. on the folJowing day. was also well stocked, but the de- mand was inconsiderable. In consequence of a requisition sent to the Mayor, a meeting of the inhabitants of the town a ml borough of Monmouth, which was numerously attended, was holden at the Town-Hall, on Thurs- day se'nniglit. for the purpose of petitioning Parliament against the proposed alterations in the Corn Laws. The expediency of such a step having been unanimously agreed to. a petition to the House of Lords was read, and like.wise unanimously approved of; and the Mayor was desired to trans- mit it to his Grace the Duke of Beaufort, with a request, that he would have the goodness to pre- sent it. The petition is signed by more than 2.000 inhabitants.
MARRIED. On Thursday -e'nuight, at the parish church of Troedyrawr, Cardiganshire, William Russell Old nail.

Timm-, of Moor-fields, to Elizabeth Goode; the bridegroom's former wife died 011 the 23rd; was buried on the 27th; and his second union took place on the 28th, within ]6 hours after! DIED. On Sunday morning last, at his seat at Pcnylan. iu the county of Carmarthen, alter a long and painful illness, William Griffith Davies, Barrister at Law, son-in-law to Lord Robert Sey- mour, oil,, of his Majesty's Justices of the Peace for the said county, and Receiver-General tor the same, and for the counties of Pembroke and Car- digan. As an intelligent, upright, and active Magistrate, and as a patron of industry among the lower orders of the people, his loss will be severely felt in the district in which he lived; and by his relatives and friends, it will be long and deeply regretted. _u-
ITEMS ABOUT CARMARTHEN, 1795-6 (By R. E. WILIIAMS, Llanllawddog). SESSIONS. The Spring Great Sessions, commenced at Car- marthen on Monday, March tne 30th, 1795, before John Lloyd, Es-qr., Chief Justice, and William Grant, Eqr., the other Justice. There were no prisoners in the gaol. The Autumn circuit, commenced at Carmarthen, on Friday the 7th of August. 1795. before the already named judges. The traverse of an indictment was tried against William Derbyshire, and William Thomas, for riot- ously assembling, with others, and breaking the Hinchester measure, belonging to Carmarthen Market. It however, appeared in evidence, that, though the facts charged were committed, the de- fendants were not the perpetrators: on the contrary, they did their utmost to suppress the riot. They were. of course acquitted. Mary Williams was tried for grand larceny, in stealing a hand board, the property of David Lewis. The fact was proved, she being taken with it upon her. It appeared, that the prisoner was a person who held a considerable farm. and made a practice of going to the market town, under the pretence of •buying some articles, and carrying home" hatever she could lay hands on. "-he was sentenced to six months' imprisonment. OBITUARY. On til" first "f August, 179&. died at ,a, 011 board his Majesty's thip La Juste, of a violent inflamma- non in his leg. the Rev.

FEET SWOLLEN AND RED-RAW ZAM-BUK EMJS A LADY'S DISCOMFORT. Miss A. E. A. Dale, of 6, Yarley Road. Custom House, Victoria Docks, London, E., has proved how wonderfully soothing and comforting Zam-Buk is for sore feet. My feet used to get swollen and inflamed," lie say*. They were so painful that it was impossible r to walk about. The skin at times was almost red- raw. and constantly ached. For four years I was tortured and got no relief until I used Zam-Buk. This rich balm soothed iiiv poor feet splendidly and also took down the swelling and inflammation. As I persevered with Zam-Buk, the soreness and the smarting pain died away. My feet arc now- quite better, thanks alone to Zam-Buk. It is quite a pleasure now-a-days to walk ahour. Zam-Buk is the ideal remedy for all itching and inflammatory conditions of the .skin. It is also a thoroughly reliable preventive of festering and blood-poisoning, and a soothing healer of cuts and wounds. Zam-Buk Medicinal Soap is invaluable to all troubled with skin soreness or irritation. Znm-Buk Balm is never sold from door to door, but only in sealed boxes at chemists and drug stores. Beware of all imitations.
BRYNAMMAN NOTES [BY PABX LANK."] One- of the items on the agenda of the Manorabon Parish Council last Saturday was the following:— John Martyn Thomas will move that the re- pairs to the Brynbach footpath be completed, and that a further grant be given towards same." As Mr. Thomas had already pointed out, this important footpath, through long-continued neglect, had got into a verv bad state. The Council had already made a grant of three pounds, but despite the ox- erci-e i f the utmost economy the first grant was quite insufficient to enable the path to be put into a "respectable" condition, and the responsibility lay with the wary members of the Council of cither allowing a good picnic of work to remain uncom- tiered, or to make a further grant. It is a well- known fact that the Manorabon councillors are by nature very nui- li di-inclined to spend money, and it required a little grit to appeal for a second grant. Like all level-headed men. however, the councillors were in the end amenable to reason, and Mr. J. Martvn Thomas will now be able to put the path into a much more satisfactory tatt, than it lii, been in for many a year. Since The beginning of the week the colliers at Pcneraig Colliery have been working on alternate days only. It seems that a portion of the colliery is not developing as favoruably as could be wished, and the management were compelled either to draw out a section of the men. or to allow them to divide the work Ix-tween themselves. The latter course v,; the one adopted, for owing to the severe de- pre-sion now being experienced in the coal-trade it is n -erious thing for a man to be thrown out of work. Two veins of coal were struck last week at the newest Blacncaegurweii drift. One seam—the black vein-which is already being worked at Pen- era ig, is as yet in abnormal ground, but will un- doubtedly prove to be workable. The other, known as the little vein, is four feet six inches in thickness, and is of splendid quality. Their dis- covery has been hailed with much joy. It has now been definitely decided by the Bryn- amman Philharmonic Society to compete at the Bangor National. As the time available for prac- tice and rehearsals is comparatively brief, much hard work will have to be done, but all are confi- dent of success. May success attend their efforts. Last Tuesday were interred the mortal remains of Mr. William Isaac. Cwmamman Farm. The de- ceased gentleman had nearly reached the age of eighty, and was one of the best known of our in- habitants. Of a cemal temperament, was one of the. rare few whose company is always a. profit and a pleasure. He was one of the best raconteurs that the neighbourhood ha sproduoecf, and having been associated with all the changes of Bryn- amman from its infancy lie held almost, undisputed sway as an authority on bygone times. Many a time has the writer, when inquiring into some point or other, been advised to consult "William Isaac. Cwmamman." He leaves a widow, and a family, lamost all of whom have made their mark in and out of the locality.
