LLANELLY. QUOITS.—A match between M'Gibbon, of Llanelly, and Selby, of London, was played on the Llanelly ground on Saturday, and ended in a victory for M'Gibbon, who scored 61 to Selby's 48. PRESENTATION. -An interesting presentation was held Saturday evening last at Trinity School- room, when Mr Islunael Harries was made the recipient of a silver pencil case (from the Brynhyfryd Lodge, I.O.G.T.), an inkstand (from the Excelsior Tent, Rechabites), and an emblem of merits from the Carmarthenshire District of Rechabites. The presentations were made by Bro. WIll. David, P.G.M. (district secretary of Rcchabitc8) Bro. D. Griffiths, and John Hughes (Grand Chaplain W.G.L.W.). Mr Harriet left Llanelly a month ago to occupy the position of secretary and registration agent of the Aberdare Liberal Association. RATEPAYERS' MEETING AT FELINFOEL.A. well- at!ended meeting took place at the Board School, Felinfoel, on Saturday afternoon, Mr D. John, junior guardian for the Hengoed hamlet, in the chair, for the purpose of electing a committee to confer with the representatives of the district on the county council, board of guaadians, &c., on important matters to come before these bodies. The local representatives had expressed a wish to that effect. Councillor T. Jenkins gave an account of his stewardship, and at the close a committee was formed for the purpose indicated. FATAL ACCIDENT. —A sad accident occurred on Monday afternoon at Llanelly, whereby a young man named Henry Lewis, about 20 years of age, employed as an haulier by the Great Western Rail- way to deliver goods lost his life. From the evidence given at the inquest, held on Tuesday at the Half Moon, Llanelly, before the depoty- coroner, it appears that the unfortiunate young man was driving down Mount-pleasant about three o'clock, standing on the shaft and leaning to the same time on the fore-part of the waggon. His cap fell off, and in replacing it he must have slipped off, and whilst endeavouring t I prevent himself falling under the wheel., he made a somersault, with the result that both wheels passed over his abdomen. Dr Evan Evans ordered his removal to the hospital, where he died shortly after seven o'clock.—A verdict in accordance with the evidence was returned. RECOGNITION OF BRAVERY.-Humli Hughes, the man who saved a young lad, Thomas Haydn Daniel, from coming to a premature end by drowning in the dock on the 10th of May, received an acknowledgment of his bravery from the Royal Humane Society in the form of a bronze medal and a certificate of merit. The rescuer had only a short time before his gallant deed come to Llanelly, where he was employed at the lead works. The circumstances of the case deserve chronicling. Hughes saw the young lad fall in ir into the water some distance off (about 200 yards), and immediately running to the rescue, he plunged from the quay of the dock into the water a depth of 16 feet. The lad was disappearing for the third time below the water when he caught hold of his hair and succeeded in holding him up until a boat came to their assistance. The medal and certificate have been obtained through the Rev. J. Meidrym Jones, of Llanelly, who wrote explaining the circumstances of the case to the society. A public meeting will shortly be held to make the presentation.
