AN article which has appeared in the Times this week should open the eyes of local clerical dupes. The writer who displays pronounced clerical sympathies reviews the situation in Wales, and although he deplores the attitude of Mr. Lloyd George, he frankly admits that Mr. Lloyd George is master of the situation. He examines the position in detail, and comes to the conclusion that in nearly every Welsh County it would be possible to defeat the notorious Education Act and its illegitimate offspring the Welsh Coercion Bill. He points out that if the Progressives resigned en bloc there would not in most cases be a quorum to carry on the business of the various Education Committees, and the Board of Education-even with the aid of the latest legislative bantling-would be face to face with an impossible problem. Down here, a few of the meaner hacks of priestcraft try to laugh hysterically and to pooh-pooh the position—while their heart all the while is down in their boots. They talk so ponderously of the meaning of National Policy" and « Progressive Party," while it is notorious that the friends of the Government see nothing ahead for them and their schemes but disaster. These people would be found prattling about the difference between the Whitehead and the gyroscopic torpedoes until the machines in question blew the bottoms out of their ships. The Japanese don't argue scientifically about the valuo of their war-appliances; they convince the enemy by making practical experiments in corpora vili-which are ever so much more convincing than other arguments. The correspondent of the Times singles out Carmarthen Borough and Wrexham as the' only two areas in Wales which are not pledged to the National Policy. Perhaps this will not be for long. In Boroughs we can only cast out the clericals piecemeal, we cannot do it in one batch as in the Counties. In Carmarthen Borough five out of six seats have been won at municipal elections since the Education controversy became a teat question. Twc or three seats more would put Carmarthei Borough in harmony with the rest oi Wales, and there are ten seats to b4 contested during the next three months.
Cycling Accidents to Carmarthen Men. On Tuesday, Mr R. Beavan, the caretaker of the Pentrepoth Schools, Carmarthen, was cycling down to Llanstephan, when he met with a serious accident. On the hill going down into the village he met a brake, and in attempting to get out of its way he sustained a nasty spill. His right arm was broken and badly lacerated, and he lost a considerable quantity of blood before he was attended to. After his injuries were dressed, he was re- moved home, and lies in a very critical con- dition. Last week, Mr Matthias, of Millbrook, Johnstown, \yhile cycling near the Red Roses came into collision" with a cow, and was badly injured.
Carmarthen Education Committee On Tuesday evening a meeting of the Car marthen Borough Education Committee was held at the Town Hall. There were also present: The Rev D. J. Thomas (in the cliair): Rev J. Harry, Mr H. W. Thomas, Miss Spurrell, Mrs Lewis, and Mr Geo. Phillios. Miss S. T. Davies, of the Capel Dewi Coun- cil School, was appointed a certificated mis- tress at Pentrepoth, at a salary of JE85 per annum. Miss H. J. Evans, of New Inn, Llanon, Aberystwith was appointed an assistant art. 50 at the Johnsown School, at a salary of £50 per annum. The tender of Mr E. Colby Evans to turre the nine instruments (pianos and harmoniums) belonging to the Committee, at E3 a yeav, was accepted. The Committee confirmed the appointment by the Priory ^treet managers, of; Mr Lerry, as headmaster, in succession to Mr Williams." The salary fixed by the Committee is £100; but it is stated that the managers increase this by a sum out of their own funds,
I Inter-Town Championship Sports. CABMARTHEN'S CYCLING SUCCESSES. CARDIFF WINS A. A. A. EVENTS. On Saturday, under almost ideal conditions, the annual itter-town sports were held at Bailey Paik, Abergavenny. The one drawback was that the cyclists bad to do their racing on a flat grass track —a deciced drawback, seeing that to-day highly banked csmertt tracks are almost universal. The following were the officials :—Judges, Messrs P Price, W. Denner, 1. Blennerhasset, E. C. Strakir, Z. Wheatley, H. D. Phillips, H. D. Yoratli, W. Fairlamb, G. Stratton, W. J. Morgan, F. G. Lcng. and A. J. Jones (secretary of the Car- marthen Sports and Attractions Committee); starter, Mr J. A Graddon referees, Messrs A. J. Davies and R. J. Brind j h indicapper, Mr C. Herbert, A.A.A., London clerks of the course, Messrs P. M. Egaa, H. Powell, and J. Colley; competitors' stewards, Messrs W. Morris, and W. Davies time- keepere, Messrs F. C. Lowe, R. J. Brind, and Z. Wheatiey enclosure stewards, Messrs A. W. Mortoi, F. Parry, VV. T. Davies, and P. Lloyd ticket 8tewards, Messrs J. Holly, J. Jamieson, and R. T. Jones telegraph steward, Mr J. H. Smith hon treasurer, Mr J. Graddon hon secretary, Mr Z. Wieatley. The arrangement was that teams of two should repreient each of the towns competing under A.A.A. laws. Competitors came from Cardiff, Newfort and Swansea, and the procedure in arriving at the winning team was that the first in each event should count five points, the second, four points, the third three points, the foath two points, and the fifth one point, the last three in each event being disregarded in the competition. Under N.C.U. rules teams came from Aber- gavenny, Cardiff, Newport, Carmarthen, Ponty- pridd, Pontypool, and Swansea, and the method adopted in the competitions was varied, the first in each race counting three points, second two points, and the third one point, only the first three being in the calculation. The Carmarthen team was Bert Andrews and Wm. Henry (who, as reserve, took the place of C. E. Baker, who was com- peting at Bir mingham), and were acoompanied by Mr A. J. Jones, Carmarthen House (secretary), and Mi W. T. Rogers, Nott-square. The results of the cycle events were as follows Quarter-Mile Bicycle Race.—Heat wiiinerp.- First heat-I. Henry, Carmarthen 2, J Davies Swansea 3, A. E Tonkin, Abergavenny time, 36 4.5secs. Seoond heat—1, A D Jonathan, Aber- gavenny 2, W J Broom, Cardiff; 3, 0 Davies. Pontypool time, 38 sees.

Carmarthen was not represented in the athletic events, but in the cycle events, the Carmarthen men won handsomely, and again brought credit to the old town. Bert Andrews rode grand, and W Henry also gave a splendid exhibition.
Great Pedestrian Feat. LAMPETER MAN'S FINE WALK FROM LONDON. A remarkable feat of pedestrianism has just been accomplished by D. J. Davies, of Lampeter, who, for the second year in succession, has walked from London to his native town. Taking tour days for the journey, as against five last year, Davies covered distancer. of 62, 49, 43, and 60 miles per diem respectively, affording evidence of enviable physical stamina. Davies is a member of the famous Polytechnio Harriers, the nursery of London walkers, and was also at one time a member of the London Welsh Rugby Football Club, but last year decided to go in for cross- country running. He has no reason to regret his decision, as he has been very successful, having won several prizes. lIe was selected to represent his club in the Southern Counties Cross-Country Championship at Lingfield last March.
Experimental 11 Marking of Salmon. As stated in a previous iessue, with a view to obtaining further information on the growth and migrations of salmon (including sea-trout, salmon trout, peal, eewin, etc.), a number of such fish have been marked by attaching a small oblong silver label (oxidised or blackened, and bearing distinc- tive letters and numbers) to the dorsal or large back fin. Rewards will be paid for the recovery of fish bearing such labels or other marki," or for information respecting them. The experiments are to be continued during a series of years, and the co-operation of net fishermen, anglers, fish- mongers, and all interested in the improvement of the salmon fiaheries is invited in order that the fullest possible results may be secured. It is announced that the following persons in Wales and Monmouthshire will receive marked :fish :-Mr W. Morgan Griffiths, St. Mary-street, Carmarthen Mr D. E. Stephens, Trawsmawr, Carmarthen Mr Horace S. Lyne, Wcstgate Chmbers, Newpoit Mon. Mr Walter Perkins, fishmonger, Chepstow Mr W. J. Barter, fishmonger, Ross-on-Wye Mr J Barter, fishmonger, Monmouth Mr H. C. Baumgarte, Royal Hotel, Symonds Yat, Chepstow.
GLANAMMAN. THE "London Gazette" contains the follow- ing:—"The Chief Inspector of Factories gives notice that in consequence of the resignation of Dr H. Rees, an appointment as certifying surgeon under the Factory Act at Garnant, in the County of Carmarthen."
The Municipal Position-in Carmarthen. BIG J3ATTLE PENDING. Mr E. Colby Evans having become a con- tractor under the Borough Education Coffi.- mittee, is we believe, now disqualified from acting on the Town Council. There are seven seats thus to be contested next November, and the Council will have to elect three aldermen in November, so that there are ten seats which will have to be fought for very shortly. Qnly one of these seats is held by a Radical, so that th«ra is a possibility of making a clean sweep" of Carmarthen clerical- ism. It is ielt on both sides that a big battle 9 id impending, and on its result grave issues ilppsnd, |t i§ going to be a fight to the hittor end, and no aitempfc to get Radicals off the track will succeed.

THE MARKETS Carmarthen, Saturday.— Butter: There was a very small market. The only reason we can give is that every farmer is anxious to get his corn gathered, as the weather is a little mixed. The quality on c offer is excellent. We quote a slight advance viz., 9d to Wid per lb. The market closed firm. Cheese The supply of cheese is small, and few on offer, and soon disposed of at from 20s to Gs per cwt.

LORD AND LADY CAWDOB.—Lord and Lady Cawdor have a large family party staying with them at Cawdor Castle, Nairnshire, where they will reside until about the middle of Ootober. Lord Cawdor has kept the Cawdor moors and other shootings on the estate in his own hands this season. Cawdor Castle, which overlooks the River Nairn, is a picturesque castellated building of grey stone, which contains several interesting portraits and some fine old tapestry. The scenery of the surrounding woods is very attractive, and many of the trees (notably some of the walnuts and chestnuts) are remarkable for age and size. The tale of Macbeth having murdered Duncan in this castle is a romance, as the earliest part of the present house dates only from the fifteenth century, Johnson and Boswell visited Cawdor in 1773, when they were entertained at the manse by the minister of the parish, Mr. II M'Aulay," grandfather of Lord Macaulay. ST. PETER'S BOY FROM HOME.—The Hamilton Advertiser (Scotland) contains the following in a recent iselie It may be interesting to know that the first boy to join the local company of the Boys' Brigade has just enlisted in the King's army. He is the eldest son of Captain J. J. Trydell, of the Brigade, and on the formation of the new corps of the 2nd L. R. E. Volunteers, Edwin Trydell was also the first to join the Bellehill Company, He stands 6ft. 2in. in his stockings, and will not Teach his majority for three years yet. The regiment he has joined is the one his father served in, and we wish him all success and early promotion." The Captain Trydell referred to is an old "St. Peter"e Boy is now resident at The Academy, Bellshill, near Glasgow, and is a brother- in-law to Mr Ben Thomas, head attendant at the Joint Counties' Asylum, Carmarthen, and Mr Joseph Thomas, Picton Court. He served 21 years in the Scottish Rifles, having attained the position of Quarter-master in the Regiment, and at present is the Captain of the Boys' Brigade at Bellshill. Some few weeks ago he and his daughter were on a visit to the old town, We can only re-echo the wishes of the Hanilton Advertiser for young Trydell's rapid promotion.

Opening of a New Church at Llansadwrn. CONSECRATION CEREMONY BY THE BISHOP OF SWANSEA, A new Church, St. David's, which is intended to serve the inhabitants of the upper portions of the parishes of Llansadwrn and Llanwrda, was conser crated on Thursday of last week by the Bishop of Swansea, in the unavoidable absence of the Bishop of St. David's, who is recruiting his health on the Continent. Since the appointment of the Rev Ebenezer Lloyd to the vicarate of the two parishes, he has worked steadfastly to further Church work in the parishes, and he has been nobly assisted by the parishioners. The new Church is situated on the side of the main road leading from Llanwrda to Lampeter, in the parish of Llansadwrn, and within thirty yards of the parish of Llanwrda. The style of architecture is Fourteenth Century, or Early Geometrical, and the building was erected by Messrs Evans Brothers, Talgarth, from plans pre- pared by Mr D. Jenlrins, Liandilo. The dedication of the Church and consecration of the churchyard drew together a large congrega- tion, to whom the bishop delivered a practical sermon. At 6;3Q in the evening there were Litany and sermons by the Rev D. Launcelot Lewis, St. Bride's-super-Ely, Cardiff (in English), and D. Jones, Pembrey (former vicar of the two parithes). The services were continued on Friday, Satur- day and Sunday, and collections made at each service on behalf ot the building fund. Several clergy from neighbouring parishes attended the opening service?, and there is eyery prospect of a prosperous and thriving" Cbuich," Mi g and Mrs Jones-Lewis, Llwyncelyn. undertook the expenee of a beautiful alter, while Miss Lewis and Mrs Fleming, West Kensington, presented the Church with alter cover, frontal cross, vases, candlesticks, etc.
I Funeral of Mr Rowland Browne, Carmarthen. On Friday afternoon last, the mortal re- mains of Mr Rowland Browne, solicitor, Car- marthen, and Alderman of the Borough of Kidwelly, were laid to rest in Kidwelly Churchyard, in the same grave as his deceased mother. The body was brought by train from I Llangrannog to Kidwelly by the 3 o'clock train, and was met at the station by a hearse and mourning coaches, and a number ot friends from the neighbourhood, Carmarthen, and other places. The service in the church and at the graveside was conducted by the Vicar of Kidwelly (Rev D. D. Jones), assisted by the Rev LI. Davies. A very large number of beautiful floral-tokens were sent from the following, among others:—Harp, with broken string, "In loving memory from Row" (Mr R. J. Brown); cross, "with heartfelt sorrow from Row and ude" (Mr and Mrs R. J. Brown); wreaths, Nurse Griffiths, "with sym- pathy" "In loving memory from Mabel and Bill" Mr and Mrs H.

E. and F. F. Morris, "from his very old and sincere friends," etc. Signs of mourning were observable in all parts of the town, the greatest respect being shown to the memory of the deceased gentleman. His loss will be deeply felt in Kidwelly, and by his death an interesting personality is removed from the public life of Kidwelly.
Strange Experience at Carmar- then. MINISTER'S FAMILY TAKEN TO THE WORKHOUSE. An unpleasant experience (says the "Wes- tern Mail") recently befell the wife of a well- known Nonconformist minister at Barry. Owing to the absence of an isolation hospital at Carmarthen, Mrs Isaacs, wife of the Rev Morris Isaac, pastor of Calvaria Welsh Bap- tist Chapel, Barry, was compelled, with her five children to spend two days and two nights in Carmarthen Workhouse. Mrs Isaac, who is a sister ot the late Mr Howell Evans, chief constable of Cardiganshire, and her version of what happened is that she and her five children had been spending a three week's holiday with her relations at Alltybwla, near Newcastle Emlyn, leaving there to return home last Saturday week, but when they had reached Carmarthen Station, the children and herself were detained, two of -the children having on their faces one or two slight rashy marks, which she was assured by a doctor before leaving Newcastle Emlyn were of a perfectly innocent nature. Mrs Isaac strong- ly protested against being prevent- ted from continuing her journey homewards, stating that the eruptions, slight and almost imperceptible as they were, were due to the change of air and diet, and to the fact that the children had come from the confinement of school and town and spent some weeks in the open air of the country. But, notwith- standing her protest, she and the children were detained and kept under observation for two days, when the children were pronounced by the medical officer to be quite free from infectious disease, and they returned home on Monday. Mrs Isaac, who had been in weak health for some time, and is of a highly ner- vous temperament, was naturally much con- cerned and highly indignant at what she con- siders was the very high-handed action of the authorities at Carmarthen in ordering the detention, against her will, of herself and children on what she maintained at the time, and what proved to, be, so utterly flimsy and unwarrantable a pretext. At Carmarthen, however, the authorities contend that there was no other course open to them. Mrs Isaac and the children arrived at Carmarthen Station by the mid-day train, and had to change for Barry. Mr Bowen, the stationmaster, noticed that one of the children suffered from a rather bad breaking out on the face, and his attention was drawn to the same fact by the ticket collector and a county policeman. The mother, he said, admitted that the child might be suffering from chicken-pox, and was told that she could not proceed by train without a doctor's certi- ficate to the effect that the child suffered from no infectious disease. Apparently she saw two doctors at Carmarthen, but obtained no certificate. She did not return to the station, but had she done so the stationmaster would have put her and the children in a separate compartment and allowed them to go on. In addition to seeing two doctors Mrs Isaac had the child examined by Dr Denzil Harries, the parish doctor, who came to the conclusion that it was suffering from an affliction which was slightly contageous, and must be allowed to run its course before it could be-properly diagnosed. Seeing that the case could not be taken on at the Infirmary owing to its some- what infectious character, Mrs Isaacs seemed to realise the objection that people in private houses might entertain to take her and the children in, and volunteered the wish to be allowed to get admission into the workhouse in the absence of a medical certificate. Dr Harris provided her with the usual admission certificate into the union infirmary isolation ward, whither mother and children proceeded immediately. After careful treatment for two days the ailment passed its infectious stage, and the family were allowed to proceed home to Barry. They received the kindest attention during their enforced stay at the workhouse. The case is one that should II teach a lesson to the authorities at Carmar- then. It is a serious reflection on that town that it has no isolation hospital. Had there been one in the town there would have been no need of taking a respectable woman with her five little children to the union. Under the circumstances, however, it is difficult to see any better course in connection with Mrs Isaac could have been taken.

WI Sad Pembrokeshire Case. YOUNG ENGINEER GETS MONEY BY FALSE PRETENCES. Before Sir Charles Philipps and other magis- trates, sitting on Saturday at the Shire-hall, Haverfordwest, a respectable-looking young fellow, giving the names of Geo. Porte and Geo. Clark, an engineer, was charged with obtaining 3s by false pretences. Prisoner went to the house of Archdeacon Williams, at Steynton, and, finding the archdeacon and his family away, he told the servant his father was a clergyman and a friend of the arch- deacon's, and that he had stayed at the rec- tory for a week. He was taken into the house, given some tea, and he succeeded in obtaining from one of the servants 3s towards his fare to London. This was given him on the statement that he was a friend of the arch- deacon's, who, however, said the prisoner was I a total stranger. The prisoner pleaded guilty, and said he was apprenticed to an engineer in Liverpool, from whom he ran away a month ago. Sir Charles said the bench were sorry to see a young man of his appearance in that posi- tion, anu to give him a chance to retrieve his character they would fine him LIO. Prisoner: I could pay in a week. The Bench, after conferring, said the prisoner must go to gaol for two months, in the second division.
Death in the Cigarette. At Oakworth, Yorkshire, the District Coroner on Wednesday inquired as to the death of Percy Green (13), the son of a joiner. The boy's mother said he had b een in poor health lately, and she ascribed his death on Sunday to cigarette smoking. His sister said he obtained the cigarettes from other boys, and another witness stated that Green smoked about a cigarette and three-quarters on Saturday night. Dr hompson said he con- cluded that the boy had been smoking for some time. He had been told he had been in the habit of inhaling, and that would be more harmful than mere smoking. He should say probably smoking and inahling had lowered the vitality, and had, in the first place, caused a sort of chronic poisoning. Cigarette smoking by boys might prove fatal. The ver- dict was that deceased died from natural causes, accelerated by tobacco smoking.
The Heart and Tight Lacing. At a Coroner's inquest held in Liverpool, the evils of tight lacing were again illustrated Last Sunday evening a young woman, named Jane Anderson, residing in Grange street, The Brook, was walking with her sweatheart, when she suddenly complained of pains in the head. She became unconscious shortly after being taken home, and died two or three hours later. Mr W. T. Blackledge, surgeon, who made a post-mortem examination, stated that death was due to paralysis of the brain, occasioned by the excessive heat, the effects of which had been intensified by tight lacing. The jury returned a verdict in accordance with the medical testimony.
Time for Courtship. SERVANT GIRLS' PROJECT. A nice point was raised at the recent meet- ing of the newly formed Union of Domestic Servants when a member asked for a ruling on the etiquette of area courtship. No ruling came from the chair, although it was laid down that the domestic servant had as much right to a sweetheart as anyone else. Servants anxious to do the right thing are looking forward eagerly to the union mass meeting in October, when it:is expected that a definite policy will be formulated on a matter which so deeply concerns the affec- tions of its members. Meanwhile a member of the union com- mittee has communicated her views to a Press representative. Servants," she says, have received their followers' on the area steps simply because they had no other opportunities of seeing male acquaintances. One of the objects of the union is to establish fair hours of work, and servants, it is hoped, will be allowed more liberty for healthful recreation than in the past. I Followers,' therefore, will not be abolished, but it will no longer be necessary to make love on the area steps. "The union of servants will not find it necessary to talk to their men friends during work hours." CHILD STRANGLED AT HAVERFORDWEST.—The lO-months.oli daughter of Mrs. Mary Jane Thomas, farm servant, residing near Haverfordwest, was discovered on Tuesday evening at he grandmother's house at Portfiele hanging over the side of the bed with her clothes caught in the rail. She was quite dead, and is supposed to have succumbed to strangulation. TAXES AND CHILDREN.—The seriousness of depopulation has made France anxious to accord to large famalies some encouragement. At the instance of the Prefect of the Seine there will next year be a naw allocation of the tax mobilier. A man with five children who rents a flat costing £ 20 a year now pay seventeen francs an a half annually. Under the new order of things he will not pay anything. COURTED HIS DAUGHTERS.—An elderly and wealthy widower of Bale, who recently advertised for a wife in a local paper, received in reply a bundle of letters and photographs. To his great astonishment his three daughters and a niece were among the number who offered to beeome his wife. He carried on a type-written correspondence with all four, "just to see," he said "what they thought oi themselves." Then he made appoint- ments with them all in the same place and gave them a sound scolding. A curious part of the story is that although the three daughters lived under the same roof, each was unaware of the others' part in the affe.ir.-Dailu Mail.
