LLANDEFEILOG The nineteenth annual show was held at Llande- feilog on Friday last in favourable weather, and there was a large attendance. The exhibition was a great success from every standpoint, and the prudent (Mr. Alfred Stephens, J.P., Broomhill, Kidwelly) came in for warm congratulations when he arrlZfd on the field, where he was cordially received. The Llansaint band marched through the village to the show ground, -where they played choice selections. The entries welFmaintained their strength numeri- cally, and the classes filled in well. taken all round there was a very fine display, which proved that the show is accomplishing the object for which it was started, viz., improvement in the breeding of cattle and horses. The horticultural produce was very good. Mr. Alfred Stephens acted a9 president of the Society, and- the vioe-presidents were Mr. D. Price, Mr W B. Lowrv, Mr. W .J. Williams, Mr. D. H. Thomas, Mr. E. A. H. Harries, Sir Owen Philipps, Mr. John Hinds, M P., Mr. P. J. Wheldon, Dr. 0. L. Williams, and Mr. J. L. Thomas. There was an excellent show of Shorthorn cattle. Mr T. Griffiths, Gelli, took the first prize in the an-e'd-bull class for "Coronet," a magnificent three- year-old. The prize for the yearling bull went to Mr. W. Francis, Cruganfawr, whilst the class prize for the bull calf and the silver challenge cup, offered by Mrs. Rudman Saunders, both went to Mr. D. Thomas, Blaenyfan, who was the winner of the cup last vear. Cart horses were a numerous lot, and there was good competition in the brood mares and the yearling classes. There were two good classes of colliers, whilst the various light horse classes were well filled with excellent exhibits. The live poultry were a very satisfactory feature of the show, and there was an excellent display in the, horticultural section. At 1 p.m. the President (Mr. A. Stephens) occu- pied the chair at a luncheon held in a tent on the field. After the usual loyal toasts had been pro- posed and duly honoured, The President proposed the toast of Success to the Llandefeilog Show." This was the nineteenth show they had held. They had an excellent com mittee and the arrangements had been admirably carried out from the start. It fully deserved all the success it had attained on account of the excellent way in which it was managed. The Society had done a great deal of good for the farmers. It had er, persuaded the farmers to do what manufacturers did. When manufacturers found that they had bad machinery they "scrapped" it and b6u.ght better machinery. The result of shows like this was to persuade farmers to scrap their poor stock and to keep better stock. Farmers had to keep upto-date in the same way as manufacturers had. He re- membered 20 years ago when we had lectures on artificial manures very few farmers at the time oared to use such manures. The land is like a baker's oven. When the oven is properly heated, the more bread which can be baked before it cools the better it pays. In the case of the land there is a season which corresponda to the heat of the oven; and the better the land is tilled and the better it is manured the more can be got out of it during the season. He believedthat the outlook for farmers is good. He did not think they were likely to have the bad times they had 20 years ago. Twenty years ago, the steamship services had been brought up-to-date. Coal was cheap; there was a good deal of virgin soil in now countries, and the cost of transport in our own country was cheap. The price of coal had gone up so that steamships could not now be worked so cheaply, the soil in the new countries now began to require manuring, and the railway rates in this country had gone up. There fore the cost of the foreign produce in our own country had gone up. It is true that wages have gone up, but even taking that into account farmers are able to compete more favourably with foreign producers than formerly. He hoped before long to see more wheat grown in this country. Mr. Timmins proposed the health of the Judges. Mr. Delme Davies Evans in responding said that in one class they had to go strictly for soundness. 0 A certain mare looked very well but they had to put her down because they did not think her aound. The President showed by his speech that he had studied the question of the agricultural outlook very thoroughly. He (Mr. Delme Davies-Evans) hoped that there was a good time coming for farmers. The President proposed the health of the officials. Mr. R. W- Stephens in response said that Llande- feilog show was the only show that had held its own during the last 19 years without mitigation or amalgamation. They had Mr. Stephens as president and donor of a 20 guinea cup; next time we may have him a-s a member of Parliament. Mr. John Jones, Plas (the secretary), also re- sponded. Mr. R. H. Sampson proposed the health of the President, which being duly honoured and acknow- ledged, the proceedings terminated.

AMMANFORD The twenty third years of the Ammanford Horse Show, reoognised as one of the finest horse shows in the county of Carmarthen, brought together a crowd of several thousands on Wednesday in last week. There was a record entry, and exhibits came from all parts of South Wales. The president of the year was Sir Stafford Howard, and at the luncheon he gave an interesting address in proposing the toast of Success to Ammanford Show." He said it was always an easy and successful task to propose the toast to a succesful exhibition. He said, per- sonally, he did not claim to bo a great judge of a horse, but he did enjoy seeing horses of all descrip- tions brought in the best condition, kept well, and evidently well-treated as they came before such a show. They had excellent prizes and many classes of animals, and although motor cars had superseded the horse in some directions, for a long time, at all events, there would be many industries where horses would be necessary. It was a. fine thing to see these horse shows and other societies existing for the purpose of encouraging people to do their best to breed good animals. One thing they should take an interest in was the small mountain ponies. He coupled with the toast the name of Alderman W. N. Jones, and did not think they could have a better chairman. He had been a member of their society for 23 years, and only missed one show and one committee meeting, which was as good a record .as they had ever heard (applause). OFFICIALS.

The bride, who was neatly attired, was given away by Mr. Richard Davies, Wauncelogau, and was attended by the following bridesmaids :-Miss Lizzie Hannah Rees (sister of bridegroom) and Miss Milly A. Jones, of the local post office. Mr. Tom L. Rees (brother of bridegroom) acted as best man. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. J. Davies, vicar of Llanllwni, and after the service the party, including Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Rees and Mr, Thomas Enoch, and other relatives and friends, sat tJown to a sumptuous breakfast at the post office. The happy pair left for the station accom panied by the guests and other well-wishers, to meet the eleven train for Aberayron, where the honey moon will be spent. The "send off" they received was sincere proof of the respect in which they were held. May they have long life and happiness. The presents were numerous and costly. -SPORTs.-The annual sports and gala was held last Wednesday at Bailybedw Field. The very numerous entries and spectators which gathered was evidence of the interest taken in the sports. The day was an ideal one for such festivities and undoubtedly from, the oldest to the youngest of the throng enjoyed themselves immensely. Everybody pmised the- tea, even the severest critic. could but acknow- ledge its superiority over previous spreads. Of the numerous items of sport which were keenly con- tested,, the 1100 yards sprint and one mile foot race was won by James Thomas, Pontllaethdy. The open cycle event fell to John Hicks, Talardd. With the rise of the moon the throng dispersed, after the singing of God Save the King."

LAUGHARHE REGATTA HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL CARNIVAL. In tho midst of inclement weather all around, the annual regatta at Laugharne on Monday afternoon last was favoured with fine weather. Strange as it may appear, whilst it rained heavily at St. Clears in the afternoon not an umbrella was opened at Laugharne, The threatening weather in the morning somewhat interfered with the attendance; still mere was a large gathering of inhabitants and visitors on the Cliff and the shore. Numbers availed themselves of the opportunity of sailing in the estuary. The scene on the beach during the progress of the regatta was a very pretty and animated one, the ivy clad castle towers, and the verdurous banks adding considerably to the charm. A splendid programme had been arranged, and everything passed off without the slightest hitch. The events filled in well, and excellent racing was resulted. In the open class for haJf-decked pleasure boats, the Llanstephan boat "Cymro" (Mr. John Jones) passed the committee boat first, and was received with the strains of "See the conquering hero comes," but when the "time allpwance" owing to size was taken into consideration, it was found that the first prize went to the "Eagle," owned by Mr. D. Fred Davies. Ferryside. Owing to the slight breeze—there was hardly a breadth of wind blowing Capt. David Jones' (Ferryside) "Alice Mario" could not show her great pace. The four-oared boat race was easily secured by the Carmarthen .boat "Graig-y- nor," captained by W. Rees, a representative mem- ber of the Towy Fishery Board. Walking the greasy bowsprit caused no end of fun and merriment among the crowd. On the conclusion of the regatta, a carnival was held on the Grist at 5 p.m., and proved a most brilliant pageant. By this time Old Sol shone forth radiantly and shed lustre on the gorgeous scene. The carnival was a great surprise packet, and many visitors wondered that Laugharne could produce such a striking show. Several of those who had witnessed the pageant at the National Eisteddfod, Abergavenny, were loud in proclaiming the Laugharne carnival as "streets" ahead of it. To those who witnessed last year's fete, the result was not quite so astonisliing. The characters repre- sented were splendidly got up, and closely resembled the characters they intended personating. Charles I. and Richard I. were two splendid representations, but in our opinion the pick of the carnival was the Indian skikari. The whole show was highly credit able, and would put many larger places in the shade, but where all were so good it would be invidious to enter into detail criticism. In the horse turn outs, the lifeboat and crew of course took first prize, but there were many who would have given that honour to "Grace Darling." It was a capital turn-out, and Mrs. Brown, with long, flowing hair and short sleeves, holding a pair of oars with determination, looked the right kind of maid that would have faced any angry sea to rescue some distressed mariner. The three bioycles were very good, and some of the equestrians such as Indian chief, cow-boy, hunting gentleman, etc., looked well. There is no doubt the judges had a hard task in arriving at their decisions. After the awards had been made, a procession of the competitors was formed, and headed by the Pembroke jJock town military band playing splendid music, they paraded the streets of the township, the pride of the hundreds of delighted spectators, who lined the route of march. The greatest excitement prevailed, and the carnival must be voted a huge success from every standpoint. It should be stated that the band, which was one of the best ever heard in Laugharne, played at the regatta, and also in the Square. The officials were:—President, Mr. E. J. Head; vice-presidents, Rev. J. Thomas, (vicar), Colonel Bolton, Major Congreve, Captain J. N. Harrison, R.M.L.I., Lieut. Brayshay, R.N., Capt. T. Jones, Messrs. W. H. Dempster, J.P., A- E. Baker, J.P., Lyon Falkener, M.D., Morgan Jones, J.P., J. D. Morse, J.P., W. Towers Smith, J. Ll. R. Starke; committee, Dr Cowan. Major Matthew, Messrs. Sam Evans, R. H. Tyler, John Jones, W. Griffith, M. Williams, C. Roberts, W. C. Griffiths, S. Thomas, R. Bevan, W. James, W. Hyde, E. A. David, W. J. L Thomas, W. E. Edwards, J. F. Williams, T. Lloyd, R. Raymond, T. Owen, A. Edwards, J. T. Brown, W. A. Rowlands, F. C. Wardle, R. Bland, H. Griffiths, G. Brown, and S. J. Richards. The hon. treasurer was the Rev. F. Atterbury Thomas, B.A., whilst the joint honorary secretaries (Messrs. W. Jeremy and A. W. Thomas) carried out their duties in a highly efficient manner. In connection with the regatta the undermen- tioned officers gave every satisfaction:—Starter, Col. Bolton; judges, Lieut. Brayshay and Capt. T. Jones; gunfirer, Mr. Maurice \Vlliams; time-keeper, Mr. Sam Thomas; and clerks of sailing course, Messrs. R. H. Tyler, J. D. Brown, and Geo. Roberts. In connection with the carnival the judges were"Mm Dr. Cowan, and the president (Mr. E. J. Head) and the marshalls of the procession, Mr. W. H. Dempster and Col. Bolton.

AMMANFORD COUNCIL MEETING. PANTYFYNNON WATER SUPPLY. A special meeting of the Ammanford Urban Counoil was held on Monday night to consider an application by the Llanelly Rural District Counoil for a temporary supply of water for Mill-terraoe, Pantyffynon. Mr. Dd. Jones presided, and also present were: Messrs. B. R. Evans (vice-chairman), Wm. Evans, J. 0. Shaw, Dd. George, J. E. Jones, Evan Evans, Martin Davies, Evan Lewis, and John Morgan'; along with the clerk Mr. T. M. Evans), and the surveyor (Mr. Dd. Thomas). The Chairman explained the object of the con- vening of the members, and read the letter whioh had been received from the Clerk to the Llanelly Rural District Council, dated August 2nd. The letter stated, "I am directed to inquire whether your Council will allow this Council to con- nect with your water main for temporary suuply of water from the neighbourhood of Mill-terraoe, Pant- yffynon, and, if so, upon what terms. As my Coun. oil meet on Thursday next, I shall be glad to have a reply by that date.' The Chairman observed that it was a matter of impossibility for them to call a special meeting, and forward a reply by that date, as it was on the Tues- day previous the Clerk read the letter. He knew the inhabitants of M.ll-terraoo were in difficulties for water. Their present reservoir was in a filthy con. dition by all account. So serious had the situation become that a deputation waited upon the Llanelly Rural District Council last Thursday, with the result that a resolution was passed there to the effect that if a satisfactory reply was received from the Ammanford Council they were prepared to con- neot with the main within forty eight hours. Mr. B. R. Evans-They will make the oonnection themselves? The Chairmanr-Yes, according to this letter. Mr. Wm. Evans-But we have only got a half- inch pipe across the railway in Pantyffynon. Chairman-That is so. The Clerk and myself con- sulted on this matter, and in order to saTe valuable- time, we instructed the Surveyor to have an esti- mate made of a scheme to lay mains from the rail- way crossing to the boundary of our district. We- have got an alternative scheme as well. The estimates for the two schemes were then read. Sshcmo A contained the following items:—252 yards: of excavating and closing trenches, including lay- ing and jointing three-inch pipes, Ð22 Is.; 82 three- inch pipes, B28 7s.; one sluice valve, etc., JB1 10s. total, jB52 18s. The estimated cost of scheme B was B14 2s., consisting an item of JE12 12s. for the lay- ing of one-inch galvanised pipes, and J61 10s. for one sluice valve, etc. Mr. B. R. Evans inquired whether it was necess- ary that the Council should extend the mains to the LlaneUy Rural area. Mr. Wm. Evans-They are under the impression that we have our pipes to the boundary, whereas we have not. The Surveyor explained that in his estimate of the cost of Scheme B the cost of pipes was not in- cluded as the Council had 8uffioent one-inch gal- vanized pipes in stock to do the work. Mr. Martin Da-vies-Do they state for how long a period they will require the supply? Chairman-They will require it for about five years, unt:l their Llynyfan soheme materialises. Mr. Martin Davies—It is only an half-inch pipe we have under the railway crossing. Chairman-Yes. Don't you think it would be ad- visable for us to tell the Llanelly Council to lay down their own pipes? Mr. Wm. Evans moved that a one-inch pipe be substituted for the present half-inch pipe crossing the railway at the Crossing, and that permission be given to the Llanelly Rural District Council to con- nect with same. The Ammanford Council, he said,. could not be expected to lay pipes over that dig, tanco of about 20 yards, as it was not probable them would be any houses erected there. Also years ago they offered water from Mill-terraoe, but it was then refused. Mr. B. R. Evans seconded, as there was a short age of water at Mill-terrace. Mr. J. E. Jones inquired as to the number of houses to be supplied. Chairman—Thirty-nine. The motion was carried. A discussion ensued as to the charge to be made. Mr. W. M. Evans stated that about 8s per houae. was considered a fair price. Clerk-l think the Myddinfaoh houses pay more. Mr. Wm. Evans—But sinoe fhen the position haa changed, and this is a temporary supply, and they will have to go to the expense of laying their own. mains. The Chairman observed and according to 8s. per house the total would be JB16 2s. Mr. B. R. Evans proposed that they offer the- water at JB16 for forty houses. Mr. Wm. Evans suggested that, as there might be. an increase in the number of houses, the charge be. readjusted upon every addition of &ve houses pra rota. This suggestion was embodied in the motion, which, Mr. Martin Davies having seconded. wa* carried.
ANOTHER APPLICATION FOR WATER. A QOmmunicationwas received from the G.W.R. Company again inquiring what would be the Coun- cils charge for supplying water for locomotive and station purposes at Pantyffynon Station. It was stated that the matter was already under- the consideration of the Health Committee, and it was agreed that the letter be referred to the Com mittee. The next item on the agenda was to receive the report of the Rhydymerdy Joint Bridge Committee Mr. B. R Evans intimated that a meeting of the Committee had been held that afternoon for the purposo of receiving the joint. estimate of the en- gineers (Messrs. Evan Jones and David Thomas), but it appeared that those gentlemen had not time to prepare it, and consequently there was no alter- native for the Committee but to adjourn their meet- ing until the joint estimate had been prepared. Therefore they had no report to make. In the mean, time it was probable that an understanding would be arrived at with Lord Dynevor in regard to the road on the other side, and everything would be presented to the next meeting of the Council in full. The Committee hoped to meet again in the early part of next week. Mr. Wm. Evans-Don't call us together until you have had the joint estimate. Mr. B. R. Evans-No, we will not do it, until we shall have a report to lay before you. Mr. Martin Davies-I will second that (laughter). IN CAMERA. Mr. Wm. Evans said he had one or two matters to call attention to in connection with the water supply of the town, and for himself he should like to take them in committee. He proposed that they resolve into oommittee. Mr. J. C. Shaw seconded, and this was agreed to.
