ABERGWIIJ. The Giil* Friendly Society gave their an- nual entertainment on Tuesday evening in last week. This year the entertainment took the form of a tea and a musical evening. A very enjoyable programme had been drawn up by Miss Davies, Woodcote, and Miss Davies, Llwynteg, to whom the success of the evening is largely due. The tea which been prepared by the members of the Mothers Lnion was thoroughly enjoyed by all. The most entertaining items on the' programme undoubtedly were the dances by the fairies, and the "laurhing song," "Good Night," and "A cup at tea" by the can- didates. The old Welsh glee. "Cuckoo fach" wa- greatly appreciated too. as well as the excellent solos sung by Mr. Johnnie Jones, Miss Daniel, Miss Gwyneth Arthur, and Miss Nellie Lewis.

Evans, Ray Evans^ Maud Walters, Enid Arthur, Myfi Lewis, Gwyneth Morns. Miss Davies, Woodcote, and Miss Davips, Llwynteg- deserve great praise for the tune they devoted to the training of the members and candidates in their differ- ent parts, but the success of the entertain- ment itself is a sufficient criterion of their abilities in this directon. The members of the Mother's Union, as well as the young ladies who assisted them, are to be compli- mented too on the excellency of their tea.

Fortune, John-street, has been a.warded the Military Medal. and has since been promoted company-sergeant-major, i This gallant N.C.O. won the M.M. for con- spicuous gallantry and devotion to duty, and the deeds are described as f ollows:- "While being heavily bombed at Le Queend at dusk on 11th August this N.C.O. refused to leave his tank which he was repairing, and take cover, although the remainder of the crew had been ordered to an adjacent dugout. The bombing at this point was so heavy that a large number of men and horses were killed, and it was entirely due to Sergeant Fortune that this tank was able to carry up supplies urgently required that night. Ajain at MeaQIt on 22nd August his tank received a direct hit from a shell wounding two of the crew. Although under intense shell fire he and the remaining number of the crew affected temporary repairs and succeeded in bringing his tank to safety, a distance of rly four arita. He undoubtedly saved the tank from being completely destroyed and set a magnificent eacaaaple of devotion to duty." TALOG.

County Council Elections SURPRISES IN CARMARTHENSHIRE. The Carmarthenshire County Council elections took place on Saturday, no less than 31 seats being contested in the county out of the 53, the nominees in the other 22 divi- sions being returned unopposed. There were many close contests, and not a few surprises. A notoWe feature of the eleotions in Car- marthenshire was the bold bid made by the ladies, four of whom were candidates. Miss Davies, Froodvale, won her oontest at Caio, thus succeeding the late Sir James Hills- Johns, V.C., and Miss Gwen Trubshaw claimed a seat at Llanelly. With Lady Howard, the retiring member, ^turned un- opposed at Llanelly, this makes three repre. sentatives of the women on. the Carmarthen- shire Council. It is interesting to note that Lord Dynevor won the seat at Llandilo, vacated by Mr. J. Towyn Jones, M.P. Many changes have been brought about, among the surprises being the defeat of the Rev. Fuller Milia at Carmarthen; Mr. Mer- vyn Peel, who, as representative of Llan- gadock for very many years, was one of the most faithful, active, and able administra- tors on the county council; and Mr. J. C. V. Pryse-Rice at Llandovery, which he has represented on the council for nine years with diligence and great credit. There will be many new faces in the new council. Eight of the old members did not seek re-election. There are seventeen alder, men, all of whom retire on Saturday, when the statutory meeting of the oountr oouncil will be held and the election of the alder- manic bench will be made.
