LLANDILO. AN LD LANDMARK.—The old tree that stood opposite the entrance to the Park for many years in a lifeless condition, fell on Sunday .ast, That it had not been "felled" long ago was a wonder. A NEW MINISTFR.-The Rev Mr Ellis, for- merly of St. David's, commenced his ministry at the Weslevan Chapel on Sunday last. In the evening ne preached very acceptably to a large congregation in English. AN OLD SHOT.—If Ex-Sergt. Tompkins carries out his intention of attending the annual competition of the Carmarthenshire Rifle Volunteers, it will be the 36th consecu- tive occasion on which he has done so. That is something like a. record. THE Parish Church of St. Teilo is now closed for improvement, etc., and amongst the latter is to be the installation of the elec- tric light. Knowing from what quarters the opposition to the lighting of the town with electricity came, this has come as a genuine surprise to the advocates for the light. SHOOTING SUCCESS.—The effect of the estab- lishment of the Rifle Club at Llandilo is being seen to advantage. These columns have al- ready borne testimony to it. At the recent Battalion Rifle meeting at Penally, we had further testimony, when Col.-Sergt. G. W. Jenkins, of the Llandilo Coy., won the first prize of t2 10s in the competition at the 500 yards range. The other prize winners from the same Company were Pte. T. Lewis 10s, Lieut. J. R. Williams 5s. In the 200 yards Snap Shooting Competition, Col.-Sergt. Jen- kins and Pte. R. 0. Davies each won 10s, Lance-Corpl. T. Davies and Pte. J. Morgan 5s each. The aggregate prize of £ 1 in the above compettion was also won by Col.-Sergt. Jenkins. He has received numerous congra- tulations, from the Col. of the Battalion down to privates, on his success. SCHOOL TTEAT.-On Monday afternoon the scholars of the Ffairfach Council School were given a rare treat at Tregeyb, the residence of Mr J. W. Gwynne Hughes. Mrs Gwynne Hughes is one of the managers of the school, and the treat was in fulfilment of a promise made to the scholars on the occasion of the last entertainment. On Monday they marched from ilie school, under the superintendence of the teachers to Tregeyb, where they were welcomed in front of the mansion by Mr, Mrs, and Miss Gwynne-Hughes. Quickly dispers- ing on the lawn, the little ones were soon fully employed at the various games that had been so thoughtfully provided for them, and the lawn presented a very animated scene. An excellent tea was provided for them, to which it is quite unnecessary to say they did more than ample justice. That being over, an adjournment was made to an adjoining field, where races of all kinds were indulged in, the winners being duly rewarded. As dusk approached, there was a return to the lawn, when -ir Morgan, the headmaster, on behalf of the children, thanked Mr and Mrs Gwynne Hughes for their kindness. Hearty cheers were sent up. Mrs Hughes in a few felicitous remarks expressed the pleasure it gave them to have the children there. After God Save the King and Hen Wlad fy Nluxdau had been sung, the children were regaled with lemon- ade, buns, and apples, and went away re- joicing and looking forward to the next treat, which they were promised.
