LLANDOVERY "PICKINGS." (By NODDY). The scholars attending the Salem (Independent) Sunday School had their annual treat list Thursday afternoon. The original intention was to partake of an (ilft-esco tet on the Cree, hilt owing to ruin falling in the morning this plan had to be abandoned. Tea was, therefore, supplied in the vestry adjoining the chapel. Later on an adjournment was made to the Creeg where various games were indulged in. Speaking of the Creeg, one is reminded that its attractiveness as a pleasure spot would be greatly increased, if rustic seats were placed on it. Some think that the exterior of the meat market would be improved greatly if proper boardings (which would not cost much, dear Councillors) were placed there for the billposters' handiwork. # # # The marriage of Mr E. J Lewis, M.B. (Cantab), F.RC.S., of Hamilton-terrace, N. W., to Miss Georgina Ada, daughter of the late Mr H. T. Cole, Q.C., M.P., was last week solemnized at St. Augustine's Church, Queen's Gate, London, by the Rev C. P. Price (brother- in -law of the bridegroom), assisted by the Rev Canon Williams and the Rev T. Hitchins. Dr. Lewis who is well-known to many of our Llandovery readers, is the son of Councillor Lewis, Royston House. A rumour, which seems to be well founded, reached Llandovery on Monday, that early Sun- day morning a desperate character broke into the house of an old man, at a place called Craig, near Halfway. The old man it appears had left on the previous Saturday for the" works," where he goes annually in the harvest time to work at the hay, leaving as occupants of the house two young girls, his daughter and a relative. The scamp was, we are told, caught just as he was gaining entrance, by some young men who happened to be passing by at the time. Foolishly, however, they let him go at the request of an old inhabitant who appeared very excited the whole of the time. So the old thatched house is to be sold, and the last but one :of Llandovery's old architectural disgraces is probably on the eve of vanishing from sight. There is nothing very eventful in its history. The one who tenanted it before our local poet, Evy," was a vendor of crockery ware.
