Election Notes. A week's frost was brought to an end on Wednesday by the election. The election- eering heat produced a thaw. Ml-— The election was fought by the Church Party with unexampled vigour. The ecclesiastic managers assured the electors that the Liberal candidates were intent on the closing of the Board Schools, and the Church canddates sought election on the very same ground that the Liberals sought it in 1902-to save the Board Schools! --1111-- The process by which they arrived at this result was very peculiar. They pointed out that Mr Lloyd George had advocated some such plan; and they triumphantly pointed to the fact that the Liberal municipal candi- dates had expressed any opinion on the subject. This is too ingenious. Lord Salis- bury told the Bishops to capture the Board Schools; and the local Church candidates ex- pressed no opinion on that subject, so if we follow their own argument, they wish to cap- ture the Board Schools for the Church! till The authority who drafted the electioneer- ing literature of the Church candidates has very peculiar ideas. He thinks that it is fair to charge people with anything they have not denied or have not proved that they had no hand in. A little reflection would convince him that it is his duty to prove his case. People who make charges have to prove them; the people accused are not called upon to disprove them. illl (I II All kinds of vehicles from motor-cars to donkey-carts were used to convey voters to the poll. The result of the election on Wednesday was as follows. Western Ward. Mr James Davies (Church) 406 Mr Rees Davies (Lib.) 395 Mr James Davies elected by a majority of 11. Eastern Ward. Mr George Morgan (L.) 493 Mr W. Isaac (L.) 459 Mr J. B. Arthur (C.) 401 Mr W. Spurrell (C.) 396 Messrs Morgan and Isaac are elected. —mi— f Alderman Trphai-n& V.AS thrift returning officer for the Eastern Ward; and Alderman Samuel for the Western Ward. HI1-- T, The East has returned two Liberals by thumping majorities; and the West has allowed the Tory to get in by the skin of the teeth. —n— Canon Camber Williams in the course of some personal remarks last week compared a well-known Liberal to a "coracle without a paddle." These ecclesiastical guns appear to make a good deal of noise and smoke; but their shots appear to do little harm to their opponents. Their aim is rather defective. —Ilii—r J The calmer Church people do not seem to be very proud of that orgie of personal abuse which passed for a public meeting the other night. It is an extraordinary thing that the party which one day attacks its opponents with such violence should have the audacity on another day to assume a pious air and to deprecate the saying of nasty things by Liberals. --lIlt- The Clericals claim the right to dictate to us how we shall fight; and at the same time they claim the right to have their full tiing at us. It is a very convenient arrangement; but somehow or other, Liberals think it a bit one-sided. 11 n In Mr George Morgan and Mr W. Isaac, tho Town Council has received the addition of two sound business men who will prove a valuable acquisition. They are both the heads of important businesses, and are just the men we want to manage the affairs of the town. —Ml— 1, The Town Council now oonsi&ts ot 14 Liberals and 10 Conservatives. 1111 --1111-- During the contest, the utmost good feel- ing was exhibited between the candidates on either side. Whatever ill-feeling is generated in these contests is produced by noisy babblers who love ill-feeling for its own sake. —Illl + f The Nonconformists are now masters or the situation educationally. They are not dependent now 011 whatever the Church will be kind enough to allow them. We have won; but it is in spite of the most frantic efforts of the clerics and clericals. i
Newcastle- Emlyn Explosion. PROGRESS OF THE SURVIVORS. The surviving victims of the Neweastle-Emlyn explosion are doing fairly well. Annie Jones, servant maid at London House, had her face, neck, and both hands burnt severely. She probably owes her life to Mr W. Oake, of Caidigau, who promptly wrapped his coat round her and extinguished the flames. Owen Nicholas and J. E. Morgan, Penlan, show favourable signs, and the lad Ivor Jones is doing very well. Newcastle-Emlyn Urban District Council on Tuesday discussed the matter of the fire, and Mr F. D. Beck said it appeared they were lacking in not having insisted upon licenses to sell gunpowder being taken out.

On Saturday, the tem- perature was as low as nine degrees below the freezing point. On Saturday morning, one of Mr Bland Davies' coal waggons had the front smashed on Monument Hill; some damage was also done to a motor-car at the sam& t'ime. On Monument Hill? the sanvo dav, a horse belonging to a farmer broke its leg. It thawed on Sunday morning, and froze immediately afterwards with the result that the roads were like mirrors. Hundreds of minor accidents occurred in the streets, Miss Jones, School of Art, sustained rather a serious injury by a fall. She cut her head, R,nd had to remain in doors for a few days. We are glad to learn that she is now recover- ing rapidly. Outside Babell Chapel, Pen- sarn on Sunday evening, there were several accidents, but nothing serious. Wednesday brought a thaw, and terminated all chance of skating. Carmarthen and neighbourhood was in the grip of a hard frost.

Owing to the extremely treacherous condi- tion of the roads, the congregation was not so large as on the occasion of the previous recital, yphei} the church was quite full. The organ solos were: Allegro Vivace (Ch. Widor) r-ecit,a-1, ik-herl the church was quite, full. The Toccata for 5th symphony (Ch. Widor); and Grand Fantasia in E. minor Storm") (Lemmens). The Toccata is an exceedingly brilliant and fine piece of music, demanding excellent technical powers upon the r-art of the organist. The anthem "Blessed be the God and Father," (Wesley), was splendidly sung by the dhoir, the fine recitative sectoins for all the male voices being excellently ren- dered. The lovely treble solo in the anthem was beautifully sung by the choir boys, the sweet singing of the boys speaking volumes of the manner and method in which they are trained. "The Storm," given by special re- quest, proved to be the favourite item and was enjoyed upon this occasion even more than at the last recital. A new feature pre- sented itself in the programs, in that the words of the anthem and hvmn were printed in full. We understand that the next recital will be given on Sunday evening, January 22nd, lm. JUNIOR LIBERAL ASSOCIATION.—The usual monthly meeting will be held at the Assembly rooms on Friday evening. Mr W. J. Lewis, Johnstown, will deliver an address on "The Taxation of Land Values." ILLNESS OF LADY LLEWELLYN.—We regret to learn that Lady Llewellyn is lying seriously ill at Penllergare, suffering from an affection of the lungs: Lady Llewellyn was slightly better on Wednesday, but her condition is still regarded 88 grave. LOCAL COMMISSIONS.—The •' London Gazette of Friday contains the following War Office, November 25th.-Royal Garrison Artillery (Militia) Carmarthen-Captain V. E.

THORLEY'S FARMERS' ALMANACK AND DIARY, 1905.-This handy and up-to-date almanack has come to hand, and is as chock-tull of information as usual. It is a veritable vade mecum for farmers and breeders, and will be found of great value. It contains a breeder's table, diary: and cash account forms, a number of important articles on farming stock, and useful hints on numerous topics. It.may be had of Messrs Thorley's agents for the asking. CARMARTHENSHIRE INFIRMARY BALL. On Wednesday, 23rd ult., a meeting was held in the Infirmary, to consider thp advisability of holding a ball in aid of the Institution. Owing to the inclemency of the weather, very few were able to be Dresent. It is proposed to hold another meeting on Thursday, December 8th, at 3 p.up. when it is hoped those ladies who 'are interested in the Icfirmory will mske an effort to attend. MEDICAL ScccEss.-A well known local man Dr J. T.Williams, son of Mrs Williams of John street, Carmarthen, has just passed the examination for the degree of Bachelor of Surgery of the University of London. Dr Williams, who has been acting lately as resi- dent medical oflioer of the Marylebone Infir- mary Notting Hill, took his M.B. in 1902, and his M.D. London in 1903. AIR. JOHN NORTH, the amusement caterer, had en exciting experience while returning from Llanelly to Swansea with his house van, at the end of last week.. He reached Cwmbwrla about four o'clock, and when neat the old tinworks the van toppled over as it Wall descending the incline. The accident was due to the slippery nature of the road. It was some time before t'he horses could be extricated, but, fortunately no one was seriously hurt. Mr. and Mrs. North were inside, and their son was driving. CALL.—We are given to understand that the Rev Wm. Roberta, co-mastfr of the Old College School, has had a call from the Congregational Church, at LlanidloeB, and also accepted the same. Mr. Roberts has laboured assiduously both in town and country, having had the reputation of being a good scholer and a most efficient teacher. At Pantteg, they will miss him very much, as Mr. Roberta was always found ready and witling to work for any good cause. We are also pleased to learn that a movement is on foot in the locality to give him a handsome token of the high esteem in which he is held. MR W. THOMAS' ANNUAL DINNER.—The annual dinner and convivial evening, which is given by Mr and Mrs William Thomas, of Hall street" (ironmonger), to their em- ployees and a number of invited friends, took place on Tuesday evening last. This annual function is eagerly looked forward to by all who are privileged to receive invitations, as the night is one of thorough and sustained enjoyment. This year's meeting proved no exception to the rule—if anything, it sui- passed all those of previous years, excellent though they were. The company numbering in all over 40, were accommodated in the spacious dining room, which had been artis- tically decorated for the occasion. The taoles were beautifully laid out, being laden with good things of various kinds, and together with the decorations made the roo mpresent a scene of splendour. Every- one seemed to do full justice to the excellent spread, which had been provided for the guests. On the cloth being removed, Mr Thomas proposed the health of the King, which together with the other iisuaWKomts, were entaiusiasticaliy icooi-^r! by all present. An excellent programme of musio, both vocal and instrumental, was then gone through, in which the following took partMr Harry Rees, Mr Robert Thomas, Mr Jones, Mr Daniels, and Mr J. Thomas, of 10, Hall st.; ] Mr Mabon Rees and Mr W. Ivor Thomas, of Pencader Grammar School; Mr C. Evans, Bridge st; Mr O. Harris, Parkyrystrad; and Misses Olive, Gertie, and Rowina Thomas, the young and accomplished daughters of the Host and Hostess. Before concluding, Mr Robert Thomas, in a happy speech, pro- posed, on behalf of the staff, a hearty vote of thanks to Mr and Mrs Thomas for their con- tinued generosity towards them, in which ho referred to the happy relationship existing between them and their employer. The vote was seconded by Mr Thomas Edwards, and carried with acclamation. Mr Thomas in re- sponding, said that he hoped the warm con- nection between himself and staff would not only continue, but would strengthen as time went on. He also spoke of the steady and satisfactory increase in his business, as a favourable sign of the mutual understanding which existed between employer and em- ployee. The company broke up between 11 and 12 p.m., and the singing of the National Anthem brought a very pleasant evening to a close, each one having thoroughly enjoyed himself. All left expressing a fervent hope to be spared for another year, so as to again meet the kind iand generous Host and Hostess around their testive board.

A Vision of Paradise. A Pleasance with flowers breathing wine, Soulptured shapes where the creepers twine; Eastern colonnades that throw the noonday shades, While fragrant aromas float from fairy glades Soft piping harmonies. whose trills, Are wafted o'er the foliaged hills Placid drone of summer bees, That fill one with luxurious ease, As seek the little busy things, The tent-shaped flowers on busy wings Flowers blowing choicest scent, Nigh cloying with a sweet content, Growing here in great profusion, While seeming touch dispels illusion All these I see and feel and more, For yet behold a sandy shore, Where the lapping waves do roam, Girding as though a blessed home. Everywhere the kindling glance, Marvels at the High Romance The distant seas of ripening corn The laden trees that court the mom, Bearing grape and luscious pome, In this enchanted silvan home, Where the mantling green's ere vernal, 'Neath a vault of blue eternal. Then the calm of azure lakes; And the quiet of the brakes, Undisturbed by sounds unmuffied, While the waters are unruffled And fly and flit, through sunlit air, Shimmering birds and insects rare. Here may be dwelleth many a Hebe Basking on the flowery glebe. Anon strumming on their shells, Or weaving garlands in the dells Garlands of lilies-lovely zone, Beauty reigneth here alone; Alone in ancient mighty splendour, To which a paean the wood-nymphs render. Anu now departs the pagau Hebe, While higher still the thoughts conceive Oh would now were but the eve I Of the final Grand Sublime, Which can ne'er be shown in'rhyme. W. EDWIN MORRIS.

-=' Death of the Rev. R. Machno j Humphreys, Llanelly. The death took place with startling suddenness in the early hours of Wednesday morning of the Rev. R. Machno Humphreys. pastor of Calfaria Baptist Chapel, Llanelly, and winner of the crown at the Rhyl National Eisteddfod last September. He had been ill for some weaks, but be seemed to have recovered, and on Sunday last occupied the pulpit of his church. On Tuesday evening he visited the house of one of the members of his church, Mr David Thomas, Glasgow Hiuse, Swath sea-road, at 10 o'clobk, when, on about to leave for home, he remarked that he did not feel well, and that he would be unable to walk home. His wife was sent for and also Dr Evan Evans, his medical attendant. It was not deemed prudent to remove him from Mr Thomas's house, and he died there a .1.1. in WmlnMiliiv mnrninc.
Local Deaths. Several well known local people have died during the past few days. MRS JEREMY. Mrs Anne Jeremy, widow of the late Mr David Jeremy, of Pentrehydd, died at 64, Moorland road, Cardiff, on Thursday, the 24th ult. The deceased, who was 81 years of age, was the last surviving member of that well-known family, the Davieses of Waun- llane. She had lived the greater part of her life at Pentrehydd, with her late husband. A few years ago on the death of Mr Jeremy, she went down to Cardiff to reside with her daughter, Mrs James. It came quite as a shock to the Carmarthen public to hear of her death, for few were better known and none more highly respected in this neigh- bourhood. The body arrived at Carmarthen on Tuesday by the 1.10 p.m. tram from Car- diff, and was met by a large assembly of the Carmarthen public who acoompanied the mourners to the burying ground connected with the Independent Church at Elim. The Rev Stephen Thomas, pastor of the place, officiated, and he was assisted by the Rev H. T. Jacob, Peniel; Rev Professor D. E. Jones, the Rev E. B. Lloyd, Bwlchnewydd; and the Rev H. Evans, S iloh-the last mentioned being a so one of the relatives. The drawn blinds and the fixed shutters on the route from the Station to the Cemetery testified to the esteem in which the deceased was held. The mourners were: Mr J. Jeremy (London); Mr T. Jeremy, Commercial HoteL Carmarthen (sons); Mrs James, Cardiff (daughter) and Mr James (son-in-law); Mr D. Jeremy Rees, Clifton House (grandson) and Mrs Rees; Miss Powell, Cardiff (grand- daughter); Mr David Powell, Cloth Hall (grandson); Mr T. Davies, Castlehowell; Mr Davies, Werndrefi; Mrs Jeremy and son, Trefynys; Mr W. Davies, Wern; Mr Evans, Pentrefynis; Misses Jeremy, Aelybryn, Peniel; Mr T. Thomas, Talog; Mr Evans, Aberddauddwr; Mr Evans, Ffossygest; Mrs Evans, Alltyfyrddin; Mr T. Davies, Priory street; Mr Evans, Cefnhernin, Llanegwad; Mr T. Thomas, Bristol House, Carmarthen; Mr D. Jeremy, Pantygleien; and Mr H. Thomas, Pensarn. There were no flowers by request. MR W. CROSSMAN, FOUNTAIN VILLA. Another well-known inhabitant of the town has passed away in the person of Mr W. Crossman, who died at his residence, Foun- tain Villa, on Friday afternoon. Mr Cross- man, who was a native of Morval, Cornwall, came to Carmarthen 48 years ago. He started business in the year 1865, and in a short time built up a most successful business as a provision dealer and grain merchant. He retired from business about 18 months ago. Ill-health had troubled him during the last year or so, and althought his death was not unexpected, it was nevertheless a, painful shock to those who had known him for so long. Mr Crossman was prominently con- nected with the English Congregational Church of which he was one of the trustees. The greatest sympathy is felt with the widow and family in their bereavement. The funeral took place at the Cemetery on Wed- nesday and was private. The Rev D. J. Thomas, pastor of the English Congrega- tional Church. officiated. The occupants of the first carriage were: The Rev D. J. Thomas, Mr Saph and Mr Waters (co- deacons), and Mr B. Thomas (Kirk Villa). The second mourning coach contained: Mr Joseph Crossman, Durham (brother), Mr J. Crossman, Carmarthen (son), Mr W. H. Crossman, Bath (son), Willie, Gordon, and Archie Crossman (grandsons). The third carriage was occupied by Mr W. S. Morris, Mr Wuiie Thomas and Mr Austin Thomas (Emporium) and Mr Walter Jones (nephews) The fourth carriage contained Mr bcott (Picton terrace), Mr Bridgens, Morley st; Mr Annand, and Mr Chapman. It was the wish of the deceased that no flowers should be sent, but notwithstanding this, many friends had sent beautiful wreaths. A very large number of letters of condolence and sympathy, were received from kind friends; and the family wish to convey their thanks to the senders who are too numerous to re- spond to individually. MR W. 1. RICKARD. Mr Wearn Ivey Rickard died at his resi- dence, Francis Well, Carmarthen, on Mon- day evening. The deceased, who was 70 years of age, was a native of St. Ives, Corn- wall, and came to Carmarthen as headmaster If the Model School. This post he held together with that of Normal Master at the I Sg College for many years A very an'd » he couldn't help it: he was bound to take his "n 1\,f" 'D:lT"1 pine out of his mouth it ne saw coming. Such is the force of habit. Mr Riokard was a man of abounding There are some who are alwaysbusy *et ™ have ever so little to do; but Mr Rickard got through an amount of work wh^h would keep three average men busy, and still able to do more. He was a director of the Gas Co of the Priory Foundry, and of numerous minor concerns When he ^bml the house at Franeis Well, he acted »» own arohitect. He retired from his ^holas tio appointments six or seven years ago, and until the time of his death he carried on a, considerable business as a market gardenei. He probably did more than any one ma" iv promote the progressive measures lately adopted by the Gas Company. He took a £ p interest in all public questions and was one of the principal promoters of the agita- tion against the cycling track m the Park. His only weakness was one which is talLlw^rhis hearers ffi-iur. Chriat KFA Urlr/The funeral, which will be public for men, takes place at the Cemetery on Friday (to-day). It is by the way a peculiar fact that ot the five Cornishmen in Carmarthen, two died this week.
A Pathetic Result of the Revival. r .r.o-n. rrA TTtW TTANTVTiLY MAN RriMUV^ LLA CARMARTHEN ASYLUM. A painful impression has been created ^at Manellv by the removal to the Cai marine i Asylum on Friday last of a man whose mind has been unhinged, it is believed, by the reli- «rious revival. He was well known m the town, and had been a prominent member of Calfaria Baptist Chapel His behaviour had been strange of late, and he first attracted notice at a prayer meeting held at a chapel last week. During this meeting he rose to his feet and prayed that the minister mi^ be saved and that deacons giveri to drink mieht also find salvation. No little indig- nation was aroused £ .t the meeting by his utterances, and some of the deacons approa- ched him with a view to getting him to with- draw what he had said. He again rose and said they all knew his character since he was a child. He was not going to work any more as God had told him to go to preach the Word. 1 Another day he went to tneiocai iiu- works, where he ^as engaged, and going into the manager's office, asked the manager it he was saved. The manager was too suipnsed to make a reply, and his visitor fell upon his knees, and prayed that all the might be saved. After that he proceeded to the outer office, and inquired as to the spiritual welfare of the clerical staii. then left, saying that he was not going to work, as God had commanded him not to. He also described how he had been praying all night up till four o'clock in the morning, so that his wife might see the Spirit as he had seen it. He said that it was impossible for him to sleep until she had had the vision, and it came at four o'clock. During the last few days he had been act- ing more strangely than ever, and on l»m-s- day he was mentally examined, the pathetic sequel being his removal to Carmarthen on Friday.

j Death of Jimmy Michael. EXPIRES ON A STEAMER OFF NEW NEW YORK. A Reuter message from New York on Friday last statesReports have been re- ceived by wireless telegraphy of the death on board the trans-Atlantic steamer Savoie, of Jimmy Michael, the professional bicycle rider Jimmy Michael first came into prominence as a cyclist in 1894, when he scored his first big success on the St. Helen's Field at Swansea. He then beat Arthur Linton and Jim Linton. Before this he was a familiar figure in Aberamman, his birthplace, where, as a boy, he used to work as an errand boy in his grandmother's butcher's shop. He always rode a bicycle when he carried the meat, and never used to dismount until he reached the counter in the shop. After his great victory at Swansea, he raced against two champions at Neath in the same year. In an historic race, he beat Arthur Linton by half a wheel. Subsequently he competed for the Surrey Silver Vase in the 100-mile race. He won it in record time, and hence forward his reputation as a cyclist was made. He was taken in hand by "Choppy" War- burton, the famous trainer, who took him over to France. Here he became world- famous on the cycling track. He established new records for all distances for one hour up to twelve. He amassed a fortune by his riding, and went over to America. He was challenged by "Major" Taylor, a negro rider, and beaten in a big race on the Buffalo track in New York city. Then he gave up cycling for a time, and he became a jockey. But he was quite a failure in his new occu- pation. He lost all his money in America, and he came back to England. Then he went over to Franoe again, but it was only too evident that his days as a champion cyclist were over, and he never recovered his old pace. His last appearance in Wales was in the Hibernian sports at Cardiff eighteen months ago, when he rode in a paced match with Jack Sheen. He looked very bad then physically, but his riding was as perfect as, if not more perfect than, anything that has ever been seen in Cardiff or South Wales. He had for his contemporaries on the cycle track, four of the greatest cyclists of all time, namely Arthur Linton, Tom Linton, Jim Linton, and Tom James. Arthur Linton who was a fellow-townsman of his, hailing from Aberdare, died only recently. Michael was married when young, but his married life was very unhappy, and he was divorced according to American law. TO BE BURIED IN AMERICA. Michael will be buried in New York. On the receipt of the news of his death, his mother who lives at New Tredegar, cabled to Mr Powers, in America, that the body of her son must be shipped at any cost to this country. However, she has given her con- sent to his burial abroad, in the country where he achieved so many of his remarkable successes. The remains were interred at the Greenwood Cemetery, Brooklyn, on Thurs- day. Mr Powers is in charge of all funeral arrangements, whilst the chief mourners were, besides his young widow, who was barely three weeks a wife, the well-known Continental cyclists, Gouglotz, Petit-Breton, Mazan, Stol, Yanderstuyft, Dussot, and Friol, all of whom are over there to take part in the big Madison square tournament. Johnny Nel on, one of the earliest victims ) of motor pacing, is buried at the same ceme- tery. _——
A Good Square Meal. This, like many another expressive if not very elegant phrase, we suspect came first from America. Everybody knows what a good square meal is, but what is a good square meal ? Why not a round meal or a triangular meal? i ,< A good square meal is usually understood to mean a full and hearty meal, including numerous articles of food. To eat such a meal, being keen set and free from care, is one of the few perfect pleasures, while to digest it is to have one's strength renewed for the battle of life. A man who can eat a good square meal and get nothing but good from it is a man to be That, however, is just what Mr R. W. New, of 248, Old Christchurch Road, Bourne mouth, could not accomplish. He ate the meal, and then-well, please read a few words from a letter written by Mr New so long ago as January 6th, 1900. ((T "For a long time, says Mr New, I suffered greatly from chrome indigestion. Nothing that I ate agreed with me, and on the rare occasions when I did venture to take a good square meal it seemed to lie Like a lump on my chest and caused me much diffi- culty in breathing. Indeed, my entire system was thrown out of crear, and I feared that it would become necessary for me to give up work entirely. But that calamity was averted by Mother Seigel's Curative "It happened this way. One day I was describing my case to a gentleman, who said, bluntly:'Try Mother Seigel's Syrup, and lose no time about it.' "I accepted this advice, and after the first few doses of the medicine was so much relieved thati needed no persuasion to con- tinue its use. But it was not necessary to do so for long, for I was soon completely cured. Considering how long I had suffered, and how bad I was, I think that comes pretty close to being a miracle. I can now eat a square meal against any man, and get the good of it." Surely this is a reamrkable and convincing statement, but if any further proof is fteeded it is here." "I have no longer any trouble with my stomach," writes Mr New, under date April 22nd, 1904. "I eat just what I like, and nothing hurts me. Dyspepsia is for me a thing of the past. I am well and strong as ever I was in my life; and my cure, so thorough and permanent, is, I know, entirely due to Mother's Seigel's Syrup. (( The man who an always obtain a good square meal" is to be congratulated, but the man who can always digest it is to be envied.
Revival at Ammanford. Some striking testimonies were given at a meeting at Ammanford. The proceedings were carried on without a conductor, but there was no unusual excitement. Two young girls spoke in a calm manner of their feel- ings now as compared with their former life. A man of about 35 to 40 years old, with a baby in his arms, got up in the gallery. He spoke of the life he led up to a few weeks ago. He would spend three or four pounds —his fortnight's pay-in a single evening at a public house, and take a few shilling^ home to his wife and two children. He would take every copper from his little child's money box for beer, and was hardly ever sober. He j was that night a living testimony of what change had been effected in him. I The next confession was still more remark- able. A man from the middle of the chapel got up and said that he had been of a worse type than a drunkard. He had been a pro- fessional thief, and he had served three years I imprisonment for his deeds. Turning to a woman by his side, he said that not even she, his own wife, knew this fact of his past history, and he felt it his duty to confess it. He felt now what he had never felt before- absolute peace and happiness. The Rev Nantllais Williams, Calvinistic Methodist minister, said he had prayed that morning to be shown what his duty was with regard to eisteddfod honours. He had been successful in winning a number of chairs at Meirion, Queen's-hall, and other eistedd- fodau, but was this competitive spirit com- patible with the spirit of the Gospel? He had a "pryddest" almost finished in the ixouse now, and he thought a lot of it, but the Spirit had tolu him that it must rest unfinished so fat as he was concerned. Mr Williams's remarks were greeted with a chorus of "Amen's" from all parts of the building. During the last fortnight scores have made public confessions, a large number being notorious characters. Inspector Davies inter- viewed, speaks of the different aspect or the town. The streets are quieter and the place seems struck with some powerful force.
CROSS HANDS. ON Monday, November 21st, the inhabit- ants of this district were treated to a fine lecture en.ed "Flws y cawell llafrwyn," by the Rev. G. Evans, Pensarn. It was a great pity that the rough weather prevented many being present, as it was the opinion of one and all that the lecture was an ideal one. So pleased was the audience that they, there and then, made Mr Evans promise to give them another, which Mr Evans agreed to do. Mr Lewis, Cefneithin Schools filled the chair in his usual capable manner.

Pauper Objects to Service. CARMARTHEN DOMESTIC'S STORY. The question of a girl recently sent out from the Kidderminster Workhouse to service at Carmarthen occupied the attention of the Board of Gaardiana at the former place at their meeting on Tuesday for some little time. The girl had been sent back to the house, and the lady she had been with wrote that her conduct had been most extraordinary, and she would do nothing but light fires. The girl had said that nothing should separate her from her mother. who was still in Kidderminster Workhouse and that when she was there she always had done her work by 10 o'clock, and after that only did a little sewing and lived on roast beef and played the piano. The lady added that the girl sang street I songs in a very loud voice, and she wondered such a girl should have been sent out to a respectable Mr Corbett asked, laughingly, if the girl played on the piano when she was at the Workhouse, and on the piano when she was at the Workhouse, and lived on roast beef 1 (Laugher).. TKa Maeter Oertninlp /T -"c j, „ The girl and her mother were called before the Board and lectured by the chairman. The mother said she did not see why she should be punished for her daughter's conduct The daughter was told that she would have to work hard if she remained in the house.

Despite the rough weather, there was a fairly well- attended meeting. The ref. gentleman delivered a most fair and ilistructite sermon, and gave a brief account of the revival meetings at Carmarthen. We might safely say that Mr. Thomas puts in practice what he preaches. Happily, there are many men and women amongst us that da the same.
