LLANDOVERY GOSSIP

LLANDOVERY GOSSIP [BY "CHANCERY."] An incident which occurred a few days ago shows the extent of the education of some people in the district of Llandovery, when an individual did not know the meaning of the word "Mural." Probably by now he has looked in the dictoionary. This Christmas as in previous years, we shall miss the good old Llandovery Band. The instruments now hang on the wall of the Town Hall.. There are plenty of young men in the borough that would join a band if one was formed. But there is one missing link that is not very easy to find, that is. "The Bandmaster." The number of the knights of the road at the Workhouse is increasing daily. In order to gain a new suit of clothes they tear their old ones up. It is now no unusual thing to see two or three tramps being taken to the police-station dressed in sacks. Tramps should beware that the punishment for this offence is now getting hotter at Llandovery, for only the other uav a vagrant got two months for the offence. What we should call business was done by the Llandoverv Town Council on Wednesday in last week. They finished their work in about 20 minutes. < Llandovery appreciate the kindness of Mrs. C. P. Lewis, Llandingat. House, wife of Alderman C. P. Lewis, in presenting the Council with the piece of land adjoining Windermere House to improve the dangerous corner of t>toone-'Streeti Not so many accidents will happen at the spot now, for the work has been finished. • • • The old folks are waiting for the 1st January. • » The Old Age Pension will be a good New Year's gift to the old folks. » » t Last Thursday week Councillor and Mrs. James Evans, Y Dolau. entertained the children attending the Williams Pantycelyn Memorial Chapel and the Welsh Methodist Bands of Hope to an excellent tea. The catering was in the hands of Councillor T. Roberts, Crown Stores. » » The first annual fat stock show was held at Llan- dovery on Tuesday in last week. Considering the state of the weather, and that this was the first held, the entries turned out a large number. The secretary was Mr. Rhys Price, solicitor, and Mr. C. Michael, treasurer. < The Christmas Market Show was held on the 23rd, and, as was anticipated, the cage-birds depart- ment turned out a success. » Readers please note that the Llandoverv market will not be heid on Friday, the 1st of January, but on the previous Thursday (the 31st), as it was considered at the last meeting of the Council that the 1st was a holiday for the shop assistants, etc. No weekly guild was held at the Williams Panty- cclyn Memorial Chapel last week, on account of a tea party, given by Councillor and Mrs. J. Evans. Y Dolau, being held on the day the guild is usually held. The whole of the neighbourhood will soon be con- nected up by telephone wires. An application was granted at the last meeting of the Rural Dsitrict Council to lay telephone posts along Cilvcwm road. • • Matters have not yet been brought to a head with regard to Pentrebach Bridge. At the last meeting of the Rural Council a petition, signed by several of the inhabitants. was sent, urging that it should be completed without delay, as the. present condition of the structure with its approaches was in a danger- ous state. On the motion of Mr. L. Roderick, it was resolved that the committee again inspect the bridge, and report as to acceptance or not. Concerning this subject, we quote a paragraph from last week's issue of a Brecon contemporary in respect to the Brecon Rural Council. The following is the report of the special committee which have gone into the questipn re the further heightening of the bridge:—"The Clerk was directed to write and inform the Llandovery Rural District Council that the w. rtieainured on tlie 16th November, j measured eight feet in the centre of the bridge above measured eight feet in the centre of the bridge abov water level, and that this Council was not prepared to do anything further in the matter."—The Clerk said he had not yet received a reply from the Llan- dovery Council, and the matter was therefore de- ferred. • • • The wedding took place at Cilycwm on Friday last of Miss Davies, Ynvsau. » It transpired at the meeting in connection with the prize distribution at the Intermediate School that there were in the Llandovery vnion 21 elementary schools, about 1,900 pupils on the register, and that in the whole area boys were at present deprived of intermediate education. • • • It was pointed out at a public meeting concern- ing the Whit-Monday events that the tradesmen and publicans. the people who benefited directly, were most niggardly with their subscriptions. Last year the total sum received of them was £ 7, whilst persons who derived no benefit subscribed £ 23. Still it was decided to continue the events. Tho College broke up for the Christmas holidays on Thursday. On the same date an excellent after- noon concert was given by the boys, assisted by- several outside artistes. including that well-known violinist, Col. Lloyd-Harries. » In connection with the WThit-Monday contests, it has been decided to include a contest for mixed choirs. It was also agreed to continue the timber- ing competitions, ambulance, quoiting, and stone- drilling contests. «.
