LLANGATHEN. THE Llangathen and District Temperance and Band of Hope Union held a temperance fete on Tuesday the 15th inst. (through the kind permission of the Misses Saunders, Court Henry) at the Court Henry Reading itoom. The members of the various sections, viz., Llangathen, Penybank, Capel Isaac, and Cross Inn, assembled at 2 p.m. at Caeau- newydd. The procession consisting of 400 members, headed by the vice-presidents off the Society—Rev J. Alex. Williams, Vicar of Llangathen, the Rev T. S. Jones, Court Henry, the Rev Stephen Thomas, Penybank, Rev U. Hafod Harries, Penrheol, and Rev G. A. Edwards, Carmarthen—and displaying banners and temperance mottoes, was quite an imposing spectacle, and decisively proved that the temperance cause in the locality is not dead. but is rather a powerful contingent contributing to the welfare of the neighbour- hood. On arriving in the field adjoining the Reading-room, the members indulged in various games until the call "Fall into line" for rtea was given. A strong working com- mittee undertook the pleasant task of regaling the robust young members of the Society with tea, cake, and bread and butter, and well was their task accomplished, as silence, peace, and good will soon prevailed amongst the youtblut band. lea over, some off the members visited the Court Henry grounds, which were kindly thrown open by the Misses Saunders, and were delighted with the choice plants and their exquisite arrangement; while Mr James Thomas, Cefnrhiwl'as, entertained other members with gramophone selections. At 6.30 p.m., the Reading-room was crowded with an appre- ciative audience. The Chairman, Rev J. Alex Williams was supported by the following members of the committee—Rev T. S. Jones, Messrs G. Gwynne, W. Evans (Pantan), T. Griffiths, Dd. Harries, Solomon Evans, J. Davies (Pantarfon), W. T. Morgan, J. Harris, D. Davies (Grongar), W. Rees, D. Stephen Davies, T. Edwards, D. Griffiths (Cudfan), D. Evans (Penybank), J. Knoyle (general' secretary). After the singing of a I hmn, and making a few appropriate re- marks, the Chairman called upon the Rev T. S. Jones, Court Henry, to address the meet- ing. The speaker, in an excellent address, discoursed upon "Reading and advantages accruing from a liberal use of the Library during leisure hours." The Rev G. A. Edwards, B.A., Carmarthen, then delivered a very stirring and powerful Welsh address. His fairy tale "The Felin F,ach," was a very apt illustration of how the "country's great- est enemy"—the Drink—crushes and grinds everything which comes within, its grasp, into poverty, lunacy, suicide, and misery. Votes of thanks to the speakers, proposed by Mr Dd. Davies, Grongar, seconded by Mr T. Edwards, Ciiiberllan, and supported by Messrs D. Harris and W. T. Morgan, were carried with acclamation. A vote of thanks to the Chairman, and the singing of a hymn ter- minated a most enjoyable day.
