LLANDEB E NOTES On Tuesday last, July 27th, a very pretty wedding was solemnized in the Parish Church between Mr. Rees Evans, Belle View, Blaina, and Miss Priscilla Evans, Gwernant, Llandebie. The best man was Mr. David John; whilst Miss Rachel Ann Evans, Llandvssul, was the bridesmaid. The bride was given away by her uncle (Capt. J. Jones, Garnant). Several relatives and a large number of friends had come together to witness the ceremony. The ser- vice was choral. The Vicar officiated, and Mr. Matthews presided at the organ. The bride was most becomingly dressed in light fawn voile dress, trimmed with ribbon and insertion, and a white crinoline hat with tulle and small wreaths of roses. She carried a most beautiful bouquet of Sweet Peas, Stocks, and Ferns, tied with a lovely white ribbon. The bridesmaid was dressed in the same colour dress as the bride, with a white hat and pink roses. She also carried a bouquet of Carnations, Sweet Peas, and Ferns. Showers of rice and con- fetti descended on the happy couple as they left the church. The wedding breakfast was a sumptu- ous repast, provided by her uncle. Later in the day the newly-married pair left by the 11.26 a.m. train for London. Last Thursday and Saturday evenings a sacrei cantata was performed in the Methodist Chapel by the members, entitled "The Kingdom and the King." The conductor was Mr. Evan Thomas. The chair on Thursday was occupied by the Rev. P. E. Evans. (the pastor), and on Saturday night by tho Rev. Evan Davies, Bettws. On the same day the Church Choir had a most enjoyable outing to Talley. Thev were conveyed there by brakes. Lunch and tea 'was provided at the Edwinsford Arms, and during the afternoon all availed themselves of the kindness of Sir James Drummond, Bart., C.B., who allowed them to while away the remainder of the afternoon in his beauti- ful grounds. Each member of the party received a rose from the garden. They visited the church and sang several hymns. The kind attentions of the Vicar of Talley during the afternoon added much to the pleasure of the outing. On this same day the mortal remains of Ernest, Davies, son of Mr. and Mrs. Davies, Penlan, late of Pontardula's, were interred in the Parish Church amidst much grief. The Vicar officiated at. the house and grave. Deceased was only 24 years old, and had a large circle of friends who mourn his loss, and showed their grief by numerous wreaths. j
NEW QUAY FUNERAL OF M.R. D. L. EVANS, B.A.—On Tues- day, the remains of Mr. D. L. Evans, B.A., were laid to rest amidst the profoundest signs of sorrow at the Wern Cemetery. Though rain fell heavily throughout the day, the funeral was one of the largest ever seen in the district, for the deceased was well known in a very extensive area. All de- nominations alike held him in high esteem, and on this day they gathered together to pay him their last tribute of respect, and also to sympathise with the family in their sad and sudden bereavement. Several of his fellow-students at the Carmarthen Presbyterian College attended, together with a large nuber of students from various schools and colleges. At the house, the Revs. E. J. Edwards,, Brynrhiw- galed, and T. G. Evans, Abera^ron, officiated. At the chapel, a portion of Scripture was read by the Rev. T. D. Thqmas, Llanon, and prayer offered by the Rev. J. M. Prytherch. The Rev. D. Adams, B.A., Liverpool, delivered an inspiring and sym- pathising sermon with great emotion. Principal Lewis, M.A., Brecon, and the Rev. D. M. Davies, Waunarlwydd, expressed sympathy with the familv, and bore high testimony to the exemplary character of the deceased. Mr. J. Oliver Stephens, B.A., B.D., spoke on behalf of the students of the Car- marthen Presbyterian College, and paid high tribute to the deceased as a friend and fellow student. The r service at the chapel was ended with a praver by the Rev. W. Aerwyn Jones, Bethel. At the grave- side, the Revs. Edwin Jones, P^sgah, and Crwys Williams, Brynmawr, officiated. A large number of letters and telegrams had been received from various ministers and students, expressing their sym- pathy with the family, and apologising for absence, and also from the Tabernacle C.M. Cnapel, New Quay; Grove-street, Liverpool; Mount Stuart, Cardiff, where the deceased was a member when at the Cardiff U.C.W., and Saron, Llangeler, where the deceased preached for the last time. Beautiful wreaths were received from the Towyn Church; from tho young people of Grove-street and Earl-road Sunday School, Liverpool. The staff and students of the Carmarthen Presbyterian College; Miss Jeremy, Carmarthen; Professor and Mrs. Shaxbv. Cardiff; Misses Jones, Garsey View; Misses Annie Evans and Gertrude Rees, Miss Annie uavies, Fountain Hall; Miss Davies, Swn-y-don; Miss Jones. Penrhiwfrancis; Misses Jenkins, Tawelfryn, and Miss Jones, Brynderwen. ACKNOWLEDGMENT.—Mr. D. Evans, Harbour View, j and family, wish to thank through the medium of this paper all those who have expressed sympathy with them in their sad bereavement, both by letters and personal calls.
NEWCASTLE-EMLYN SUNNY SOUTH WALES.—An article headed thus in the "Morning Leader" says:—The river Teifv, on the banks of which stands the picturesque little Welsh town of Newcastle-Emlyn, provides another delightful stretch of river scenery." P.S.A.—At the meeting on Sunday, Mr. Davies, Treorchy, delivered an address, and a sacred solo was sung by Miss Harris. I THE SpoRTs.-Next week we hope to publish a full acount of the sports held here on Bank Holi- day an event, we are told, which promises well. PENRITH.—As announced by us some weeks ago. the Rev. Arthur George has accepted the living of Penrith. Mr. George has not yet removed to the parish, but we were glad to hear that he is to be presented with a handsome testimonial at Erwood in the course of a few days. We are also pleased to learn that Mr. George has already interested himself in a scheme for the restoration of the parish church, a worlc undoubtedly in which he will r?- ceive the support and encouragement of everybody in the district.
PENCARREG. Situated in Gwarffordd, in the parish of Pen- carreg. Carmarthenshire, is to be seen a curious tenement. Well-nigh having turned 80 summers, Ann Jenkins is still hale and hearty, and often accomplishes a ten-mile walk to a neiglibouring town. She is a typical Welshwoman, and is very eccentric. She has resided in this old homestead for over a quarter of a century. "Nanny" is to be seen every Friday wending her way to the local sub- office for her old age pension.
BR VNAMMAN LAST Wednesday week, at the Tregeyb Mansion, Llandilo, on the initiative of Mr. Jonathan Jones (clerk to the Quarter Bach Parish Council), some of our oldest inhabitants took part in a very interesting event. During the festivities to celebrate the home- coming of Mr. and Mrs. Philipps, who had been on their honeymoon tour, the oldest tenants on their Cwmgarw Estace, Brynamman, presented the happy couple with a fine piece of silver plate as a token of deep respect.—Mr. Dd. Rees. who is 84 years of age, in making the presentation, said very quaintly: "I was here in this house 50 years ago, asking your grandfather to give me. a lease on the house I now live in."—In replying, Mr. Phillips said he was very pleased to accept the present. It was unique be- cause it was the first present that they had received as Mr. and Mrs. Ifyullipt-.—Mr. Wm. Herbert, draper, and Mr. Wm. Llewelyn, Bryncelyn (who were amongst the tenants of the estate), also spoke. —"Park Lane." (Brynamman Notes, by "Park Lane," will be found on Page 7.)
LLANDYSSUL HOREB.-At Horeb Congregational Chapel, in spite of a very heavy downpour of rain on Sunday afternoon, there was a large attendance at the children's festival held here. The festival is known locally for some reason or the other as "Sulgwyn Bach." The following Sunday School children took part in it. This year Carniel. Bwlchygroes, and Horeb, and all the children did remarkably well with their apportioned tasks. Horeb and Carmel were questioned by the Rev. D. Jones, Gwern- llwyn and Bwlchygroes. by the Rev. Davies, Bryn- bowydd, Ffestiniog. Each school sang beautifully as follows:—Carmel, conducted by Miss Davies, Pantgwyn, Bwlchygroes, by Mr. Jenkin Evans, and Horeb by Mr. Evan Davies, Barcoed. Miss Jeannie Thomas was the accompanist. Great praise is due to the conductors and others for the happy interest they take in the children. EISTEDDFOD.—Great preparations are going on for the eisteddfod next Wednesday, which, in all possi- bility, will prove a record event, and the various competitions rare treats. The members of the com- mittee have been very busy during the last days and all arrangements have 'been thoroughly made to secure a successful event. A neat programme of the day is anticipated, and an unrivalled series of train excursions will bring the crowds to the place. The local choirs are also doing noble progress. A full account of the event will appear in next week's JOURNAL.
LLANDILO PROPOSED OUTING.-It has been now decided that the annual outing of the Llandilo and District Licensed Victuallers' Association will be to Cardi- gan, the party to be conveyed there by motor-car through Carmarthen and Ccnwil. A pleasant day's enjoyment is anticipated. A FINE SHOT.—The successful debut made by Corporal William Owen Jones, of the Llandilo Territorials, has been followed with much interest. He has done exceedingly well from a sporting and a monetary aspect. Corpl. Jones joined his battalion in camp at Ammanford this week. PERSONAL.—The news of the appointment of the Rev. William Davies, of Ffairfach, as chairman of the Welsh Congregational Union, gave much satis- faction locally, and he has been cordially congratu- lated upon the honour conferred upon him. The rev. gentleman is now staying at Bournemouth for the benefit of his health. FESTIVAL SERVICE.—Under the auspices of the Church Choral Union, an English Festival Service was held at the Parish Church on Tuesday. Those choirs taking part hailed from Llanfair-ar-y-bryn (Llandovery). Llandilo, Llangennech, Loughor. and Gwaun-cae-gurwen. Mr. W. Baxter Brookes, F.R.C.O., Carmarthen, was the conductor. The heavy downpour of rain told a tale on the atten- dance, but the event was, notwithstanding, a great success, the singing being of a high standard. THE SEASON.-There were several parties in the town on Saturday, but the very unsettled weather is exceedingly disappointing. On Tuesday, the Towv was in full flood, after practically twentv-four I hours heavy rains, but fortunately the greater por- I tion of the hay harvest has been successfully gar- I nered. TBEGEYB GARDEN PARTY.-Ile garden party at Tregeyb on Thursday, which was held for the Llan- dilo "townspeople to welcome home Mr. and Mrs Philipps, was exceedingly well attended. Mr. and Mrs. Gwynne-Hughes and a party of friends were assiduous in their efforts to make the visit a plea- sant one, and it was greatly enjoyed. The Terri- torial Band played selection3 of music. The grounds were thrown open, and an opportunity to view the splendid presents was given, and refreshments pro- vided. The weather was a little disappointing Tate in the afternoon.
ABERGWILI DEATH OF AX OCTOGENARIAN.—The death took place on Saturday last, in his 85th year, of Mr J. Jones, farmer. Waunrafr. The deceased, who was highly respected throughout the district, leaves three daughters to mourn his loss, viz., Miss Jones, Waunrafr; Mrs. Jones, Ffynnon-newydd, and Mrs. Ihomas, Ivy Cottage, Parcmaen. with whom mucli sympathy is felt. The funeral, which was very largely attended, took place on Wednesday last at Llanfihangel-uwch-Gwili Churchyard,of which Church the deceased had been a devoted member, and where her good services will be greatly missed. At the house prior to the departure a short service was cvnducted by the Rev. T. Thomas, vicar, and the Kev. J. Davies, Nantgaredig. In the church and at the graveside the Vicar officiated.
ANTIQUARIAN SOCIETY FOR CARDIGANSHIRE Following the excellent meeting which was held at Strata Florida Abbey last Thursday, a meeting has been held with the object of starting a Cardigan- shire antiquarian society on lines somewhat similar to that which already exists in the neighbouring county of Carmarthen. It was unanimously decided that Sir Edward W eblev-Parry-Pryse (Gogerddan) be asked to become the first president. A further #ieeting was held at Aberystwyth, when a strong executive committee was appointed, with the Rev. Professor Tvrrell Green (Lampeter) as chairman, the Rev. J. Francis Lloyd (vicar of Llanilar) as secretary, and Mr. Ed- ward Evans, J.P., Aberystwyth, as treasurer. Mr. Lloyd read a letter from Sir Edward ex- pressing his willingness to "act as president, and at the same time enclosing a hanflsome donation to- wards the funds. A visit t& Talley Abbey, near Llandilo, has been fixed for August 25, leaving Aberystwyth Lampeter at eight a.m. by motor in..and travelling thence bv breaks and chara- bancs at 9.45.

-= NOTES OF THE WEEK The County Council have decided to take over Kidwelly bridge, which belonged to the Corporation, anw widen it. Why not Carmarthen £ There was a severe visitation of small-pox in Carmarthen from July 22nd to March 9th one hun. dred and eighty-six years ago. In July, 1724, the first Freemason's Lodge was established to meet on the first Tuesday in every month at the Bunch of Grapes, but, of course, not the house known by that sign to-day. .¡ Lament at the Carmarthenshire County Council:- Mr. John Johns-Mr. Henry Jones-Davies is a magistrate. I am not a magistrate. Mr. W. Mabon Davies-Pitv. Whether the district is getting better, or whether law-breakers are not being found out, we do not know. but it is a noteworthy fact that there has been no business at the County Police Courts for the past two Saturdays, and even the Borough Police Court on Monday last had no cases for trial. ? A man summoned for being drunk and disorderly at a special Borougil Petty Sessions on V^dnesday j n 6XpreS-Sln" his contrition for what had hap- pened, acknowledged that he "had no business to touch beer, as he had hurt his head in AfrIca." This admission is quite refreshing, the idea pre- valent amongst this class being that the police have no business to run them in. In July, 1828. a Carmarthenshire celebrity, Sion 'Sanau died. He had prepared his vault and tomb- stone six or seven years before his death. In his will he desiz-ed that his body should be kept in the house for eight days, or a fortnight, before burial, and that his funeral should be attended by a cuaise with his nurses, twenty-six men on horseback, and six on foot, each man to have a bottle of wine be- fore starting. Not half a bad start either. A correspondent writes :I was lately introduced to two young nieces of a friend of mine whose sur- names were Eve. They told me that at one time their mother was in search of a house at Norwood, and happened to go into a street called Eden. Seeing a card up—house to let—she enquired of the person in charge the terms, etc. After giving this information the landlord very naturally asked her name. She replied, "Eve." "Well!" he said, "now that is very furious for my name is Adam." The Rev. Gwilym Davies, M.A.. pastor of the English Baptist Chapel, in his striking sermon on the Centenary of Tennyson, last Sunday evening, alluded to the music of the late Laureate's poetry, and wondered how the poet could make music out of a hard and common-place language like English. The rev. gentleman said that with Greek, or even Welsh, it might be possible. We should not have thought that an ardent Welshman like Mr. Davies would have put "Yr hen laith" second to any language. Burry Port Urban Council has adopted the "Small Dwellings Acquisition Act," an act to encourage thrift, as it enables workingmen to borrow money from the local authority at a cheap rate of interest to build or acquire. their own houses. Carmarthen Corporation never gave this a thought. At the bidding of the Trades and Labour Council they rushed wildly at the Housing of the Working Classes Act, and indeed, would have put it into operation but for the caution observed by one or two members. Here is another good story of the famous hymno- logist, Williams of Pantcelyn. A girl in his service was a great sleeper, and it was with difficulty that she could be awakened in the morning. In conse- quence she was greeted one morning by the poet in the following manner:— "I now can see quite clearly, If church bells rang away, The sounding of the mill wheel, And the hammer in its way; The dishes and the kettles Came tumbling through the door. If bed would yield beneath her, She'd sleep for evermore." With the arrival of the first of August it becomes legal, rightly or wrongly, to shoot certain of our sporting birds. Almost certainly it is wrong that the woodcock should be shot so early, and there is a movement on foot for arranging the close times for that bird more suitably and also more uniformly throughout the country. There is much to be said for a considerable local option in these matters; but when it leads to a bird being protected a fortnight later in one county than in the county next adjoin- ing it, according to the different views of the county councils, it seems as if a little more uniform action were desirable.—"Country Life." Eighty-one years ago yesterday (Thursday), the first Picton's Monument was opened with great eclat. The procession included the Corporation, militia, subscribers, and sixty Waterloo veterans, each with a sprig of laurel in his hat. Twenty-six years later almost to the day the monument. was struck by lightning, which displaced the top stone. The great damage occurred during very remarkable and terrific thunderstorms, accompanied by pro- digious rain. The reservoir at Cwmoernant burst the water overwhelming some cottages in its course' A piano was floated in a house in Darkgate, and iron kettles from a shop were washed down Blue-street. The rivers were greatly swollen, and a voung man was found drowned in Llanddowror churchyard. Twenty-six bridges were destroyed in various parts of the county, among them being Pibwr, Croesy- ceilog, Pontantwn, Glanrhydw, PJróath, and Mydrim. The. very wet July, culminating in the in- cessant downpour on Tuesday last, made one being to ask whether history was not about to repeat itself. "If it is doubted that 'Lloyd Georgism' and 'Henry Georgeism' are the same thing. let us listen, says the "Observer" (July 18th), "to the land nationalisers themselves. These enthusiastic apostles dined at the Trocadero last Monday night and enter- tained Mr. Henry George, jun. Mr. Josiah Wedg- wood, M.P., declared from the chair:- 'There had been many discussions in Parlia- ment as to who was the author of the Budget The author was -L,enry George (cheers).' Then Mr. Henry George, jun., rose and said that 'the greatest Government on earth had started the greatest movement on modern times The United States was a Republic of convulsions The Budget now before the British Parlia- ment would make history.' By which woundy language this hereditary ex- ponent of a universal scheme of confiscation meant that of the principles of this Budget are right, all private property in land, large estates an3 small holdings alike, ought to be abolished throughout tha world, including Ireland and Canada. Mr. Henry George, jun., fc at least more logical than Mr. Asquith ancThis colleagues."
UNITED COUNTIES AGRICULTURAL SHOW SPLENDID EXHIBITION. The United Counties Agricultural Scoiety held its fourteenth annual show at Carmarthen Park ypsterday (Thursday), where there was collected a display of cattle and horses seldom met with out- side the Royal, Bath and West, and similar shows. The weather was threatening, but rain kept away, as did also many agriculturists, who were at home busy hay harvesting. Not since its inception has the show been held so early, but this was unavoid- able, and when the date was fixed no one anticipated the hay harvest would be so late, owing to the late spring and wet July. However, there was a fairly good crowd present to meet the President-Lord i-it. David's—and a large number of motor-cars lined part of the track, on the sward inside which the horses were judged. The attendance included most of the county families from South-West Wales. The arrangements again were all that could be de- sired, thanks to the foresight of the energetic secretary, Mr. D. H. Thomas, whose services have been "of such inestimable value to the Society. There was a large display of excellent cattle in all the classes, the valuable prizes offered attracting the cream of the country. 'rhe total number of ,ntri was 338; although less than that of last year's .,[to\ by 92, was yet well up to the average, some of the, classes showing an advance on the numbers entered last year. The Shorthorn Class, although containing some fine beasts, numbered only 70 entries, as against 155 last year, but the Herefords .showed an entry of 13, four more than the previous year. The entries in the Black Cattle Class totalled 29, less than the number in 1908, which was 41. There- was an advance of 5 in the Channel Islands entries, the number being 8, while the Agricultural Horse Class made up the large number of 71, against 63. There was not much difference in the number entered in the Hackneys and Ponies Sec- tion, the number being 76, a difference of 4. A new class was that of Army remounts, for which a special prize of JS10 was presented by the War Office, and 10 entries were received in this class. Jumpers numbered 1, instead of 32 last year, but the harness class showed an advance, the number being 34, against 26 last year. The sheep also made a very good show, with an entry of 40, a difference of only two from last year's number. The pig entries were 13, and 25 names were sent in for the dairy produce -class. Tne judges, whose awards met with general •satisfaction, wereShires, Mr. John Nix, Outseats tud Farm, Alfreton, Derbyshire; hackneys, Mr. Thomas Hall, The Grange, Copmanthorpe; jump- ing, Lord St. David's and Sir Marteine O.

Thomas, 5, Quay-street, Carmarthen; audicor, Samuel Taylor, chartered accountant, Swansea: veterinary inspector. Mr. J. F. Rees, M.R.C.Y.S., Carmarthen. The Shorthorn cattle, as usual, made the feature in the cattle department, and although numerically smaller, yet the quality was well up to the high standard of excellence always seen at this exhibi- tion, the judge being much struck wiflfi those that came before him. The old bulls made a good show, with a large entry, and the prize-list being headed in that noted show bull, -'Pride of Sunshine." the property of Mr. J. Lloyd Morgan, Rhiwfelen.' The second bull, Lord Tredegar's "Diamond Marksman." was handicapped somewhat by his age, but is a verv smart, stylish bull. The yearling bulls were a fine lot, file winner being a fine young roan bull, which won the Shorthorn Society's prizes, and when known Ít. was the property of the genial secretary (Mr. D. II. Thomas), the victory became a very popular one. yr Thomas was also placed reserve number wIth another roan yearling-, which did nor compete ti»' tiie class prize. The bull calves were a strong ■class, several of them being a good colour—good dark roan, and was headed by a nice animal belong- ing to Mr. Stratton. The heifer calves were an ex- ceptionally good lot, and the yearling heifers made the class of the show. The dairy cows were short ill number, and the prize was given to a tvpieal »vliit<> shorthorn dairy cow. There was a falling off in the black cattitt depart- ment, which on the whole was disappointing in num- bers and quality. It was only where tlio North Wales element was in evidence that they came out on top, and the majority of the exhibits were more of a commercial character. The champion bull was -a big, beautitu-ly-nioulded animal, belonging to Mr. Scourfield, Blaenwernddu, which was as dearly a winner in the Royal as lie was here to-day. The yearling bulls were nothing very great, and the bull calves were disappointing in number, but the winner stood right out, being a very level, lengthy beast, showing good character. Of the females, the winning cow, which also took the championship, was one of the old-fashioned kind, good in type and character, but might be a bit deeper in the rl I). The winning heifer calf was a perfect model and an outstanding winner, likely to hold her own in the best of company in the future. Mr. Scourfield hav- ing won the Champion Cup twice in succession, with different animals, it now became his absolute property. The Shire horses were the grandest lot seen aL this show. The brood mare class was a very strong one, Lord St. David's "Bodenham Lady" being placed ahead of "Buttercup," now the property of Mr. David Evans, Llwyncadfor, who purchased her in March last in London for £ 120 from Mr. Alfreo Thomas, Maesyprior. The filly class foaled 1909 was won by "Emlyn Return," a fine youngster, which was born in London, and likely to be a winner there in the future. She is an offspring of '"Buttercup" by "Tatton Friar," and the judge was in two minds of placing her champion for the challenge cup. The yearling filly class was won by "Lydstep Empress," which was shown at the "Royal" and "Bath and West." In the open class Lord St. David's '"Boden- ham Lady" was placed second to a likely London champion in Lord Wintorstoke's "Rickfonl Lady," but placed in front of that well-known winner, "Sussex Bluegown." Speaking generally the light horses were a splen- did lot. and the classes filled in well. The attendance did not compare very favourably with that of last year, that at 11 a.m. being 144, against 258 last year. At 12 (noon) it was 179,' against 393, and at one o'clock 474, against 443, an increase on that at the time last year. The number at 2 o'clock, however, was not so good. being 872 against 1,904, while at 3 p.m. it was 1,262, to 2,654 corresponding time last year. Music was provided throughout the day by the Llansaint Silver Band, under the baton of Mr. Charles Davies, Kidwelly (conductor). The catering was again in the capable and ex- perienced hands of Messrs. George, of Cheltenham, and the judges' ordinary, which the President at- tended, with a distinguished company, was ex- cellent, and served up in the best of stvles. The results were as follows:- CATTLE. SHORTHORN. (Classes 1-7 Open to South Wales and Monmouth- shire.) Class 1. Bull, two years old and upwards—1, Mr. J. Lloyd Morgan, Rhiwfekn, Abergwdi.
