THE MAYOR AND SUNDAY DRUNKENNESS— At an occasional court, on Monday, before the Mayor, Mr. W. L. Daniel and Mr. Howfield, several men were fined 10s. and costs for getting drunk on Sunday. If you can afford to get drunk on Sunday, you can afford to pay 10s. and costs or stand the consequences," said the Mayor. In future all who come here for Sunday drunkenness will be lined 10s. and costs, or 14 days' imprisonment.—The defen- dants included James Jones, of Troedyrliiw, who was found looking for a coffee tavern at Caeharris, Dowlais; Patrick Butler, John Mahoney, and Wm. Hughes.—George Moore, for being drunk and using bad language in Church-street on Saturday, was mulcted in a similar penalty, as was also Thomas King. for being drunk at the Adam and Eve Inn, Merthyr, on Saturday. DEGRADATION.—Ada Priestly was brought up at an occasoinal court, on Monday, a con- stable stating that he saw the woman in Wheat- sheaf-lane gully with eight men.

A miscellaneous programme was contributed to by the following :—Messrs. Job Williams, Thomas Jenkins, G. MacNaught, Evan Morgan, Willie Price, T. Evans, Rhys T. Richards, W. Griffiths (junior), and Miss May Griffiths. Miss Annie Mary Evans's rendering of Y Ddafad Golledig" was much appreci- ated. CYFARTHFA EIGHTY YEARS AGO.-A traveller has left on record in one of the old mechanics' magazines his impressions of Cyfarthfa 80 years ago, and the contrast is one of the greatest. He writes :—Mr. Crawshay employs 5,000 men. The annual sum expended for labour is £ 300,000; the number of horses he employs is 450; the number of steam engines, 8, each of 50 horse power, but going day and night, and doing the work of 12,000 horses. The iron stone annually used amounts to 90,000 tons, the lime to 40,000 tons, the coals to 200,000 tons, gun- powder to 80,000, candles 120,000 tons. A NEW WELSH K.C.—Mr. John Sankey, of Cardiff and London, who has just taken silk," is one of the best known legal luminaries in South Wales, and has for years attended the local county courts, especially in compensation cases. He was born at Evesham, in 1866, and was educated at the Cardiff Proprietary School, and subsequently went to Lancing College. He then obtained a classical scholarship at Jesus College, Oxford. Mr. Sankey, not only took a keen interest in rowing and became quite a distinguished oarsman, but he worked hard at his studies, and took his degree in 1889 with honours in the Final School of Modem History. He read in the chambers of Mr. (now Mr. Justice) Pickford, and was called to the Bar in 1892. He began to practise on the South Wales Circuit, and did well from the start. Mr. Sankey had the leading junior practice on the South Wales Circuit. He is an excellent French scholar, and has explored many of the rural districts of the North and West of France; indeed, he does not let many summers pass without a visit to Brittany, to which he is especially devoted. Mr. Sankey is unmarried. OBITUARY.—The death occurred on Thursday of Mr. David Davies, painter, Brecon-road, at the age of 52, at 1 Mount-terrace. The deceased had suffered considerably during the last three years, but bore up with great Christian fortitude to the last. On the day of his death he attended I the May-day show at the Park, be always having been a keen admirer of local enterprise. After returning home he partook of supper and was enjoying his after-supper pipe, when he suddenly passed away. The news of his death caused surprise amongst his numerous friends. De- ceased was a faithful member of Bethesda Congregational Church, and conducted the choir for over 25 years, having obtained the position after his brother, Mr. William Davies, now of Wilkeabarre, America, who is expected here in a fortnight's time. The operas, oratorios and cantatas rendered by the choirs, dating back to the eighties, bring back pleasant reminiscences. Many to-day in the musical world are on the top rung of the ladder through Mr. Davies' instrumentality and strict yet sound training. Mr. Davies will long be re- membered in Bethesda Church for his sincerity and faithfulness. His advice was at all times eagerly sought, and he was ever ready to do a kind action. He was an ardent member of the Merthyr Liberal Club, and also a member of the Sons of Temperance Lodge and Cyfarthfa Castle Lodge of Oddfellows. The funeral, which took place on Monday, at Tabor, Cefn, was one of the largest seen in the district for some time. The rendering of deceased's favourite hymns by. the choir, as the solemn cortege wended its way to his last resting-place, was most impressive. The service at the house* and graveside was conducted by the pastor, Rev. Jacob Jones. Mr, E. Lougher (Sons of Temperance), and Mr. Lazarus Lewis, Cyfarthfa Castle Lodge (Odd- fellows) read the burial service of their respective Orders. RESCUE HOME, MERTHYR TYDFIL.

Echoes of Incorporation. PRESENTATION TO THE EX-MAYOR. MACE TO BE PURCHASED. At a meeting of the General Purposes Com: mittee of the Merthyr Corporation, on Wdneg. day afternoon, a deputation, representing thf advisory committee of the Incorporation Movement, attended, and made several interest- ing presentations to mark the success of theiJ efforts.—Councillor YT. James headed th< deputation, who included Mr. J. Plows, Dr. Biddle, Mr. W. W Meredith, Councillor Isaas Edwards, Mr. Arthur Daniel, and Mr. A. J, Howfield. Councillor F. T. James bore in his hand « handsome solid-silver epergne, richly chased, an j said the incorporation committee, on behalf the subscribers to the incorporation fund.* presented the epergne to Alderman D. W. Jon««j to mark the enormous work which he did in t J « fight for the charter in 1897-8, and also in 190: The ornament bore the inscription, Present J to Alderman Daniel William Jones, J. I', Mayor of Merthyr, 1907-8, by the promotef of the Incorporation of the Borough, as a slight token of his serviccs in connection with in* movement." He said that all the committe. were perfectly aware of the great services which Alderman Jones rendered to the movement, not only when the application for a chartet was successful, but also in the years 1897-8. He (Mr. James) was high-constable during thos. years, and he knew what an enormous amount of time, trouble and skill the ex-Mayor devoted to the movement during that period. It therefore gave him very great pleasure, on behalf of the committee, to present the Diece of plate to Alderman Jones (applause). Alderman Jones, in accepting the gift, said he was extremely grateful for this token oi appreciation of his services. He acted a9 solicitor to the incorporation movement in 1897, end undoubtedly, although they wen disappointed on that occasion, what they then did had a great deal to do with the foundation of the further application in 1903, which was successful (applause). He had been very proud to be associated with those who wem around him, and other prominent townsmen; in the work of securing the Charter (applause). He was perfectly convinced that already they had had abundant proofs of the benefits of tha charter, and in the years to come he was satisfied that the town would derive very great benefit from the charter (applause). He assured tha deputation that the silver ornament would lJ. very much prized by himself and his family. Mr. J. Plews, barrister, said it was now his duty to present the Mayor with a cheque foi £6968. 6d balance in hand on the incorpcratiou account, on the condition that the money was used to purchase a Corporation mace (laughter). The Incorporation Advisory Committee carried out the whole of their duties, and paid all theii debts, and they thought that the balance in hand could not be better utilised than in the purchase of a mace, and if the Mayor thought iit he might add something to the amount. He (Mr. Plews) was proud to say that he took an active part in the incorporation movement. He had been in all the fights from beginning to end (applause). Dr. Biddle said the Committee hoped a mace would add dignity to the Mayor and Cor- poration when attending public functions in the future.-—Mr. Arthur Danic], in a humorous srcech, said he was not accustomed to address the Council from outside the bar, and he hoped he would not always have to do so, but thoughi he would again some day address the Council from within the bar (applause). The County Borough was indebted to Alderman D. W. Jones for what he did in the early part of the Incorporation inquiries, and the committei thought that those who sowed the seed wert entitled to the credit of the harvest (applause). The Mayor, in reply, said the Corporation were delighted that the Committee had decided toido honour to one who had a great amount of spade work in connection with the fight foi a charter (applause). For over half a century the struggle for a charter went on, and he was pleased the townspeople had recognised deserv. ing labours (applause). To receive a, chequ. for the purchase of a mace was a pleasant sur- prise to him, and he was sure the Corporation would consider at once the question of providing a suitable mace which would be worthy of tht borough (applause). A mace would be a great acquisition. He was sure the inhabitants would bo delighted to hear of the successful end of the incorporation committee's work (applause). On the motion of Councillor Dan Thomas, a small committee was appointed to carry out the wishes of the Committee.
Cyfarthfa Castle and Grounds. TO BE OPENED JUNE 5Th. At a meeting of the General Purposes Com" mittee of the Merthyr Corporation, en Wednes- day afternoon, the Mayor (Alderman A. Wilson) announced that the keys of Cyfarthfa Castla and Park were, on Monday, handed to the ex-Mayor and himself, and everything was now in possession of the Corporation (hear, hear). He trusted arrangements would now be madel to throw the Park open, teo the inhabitants.— Councillor Dan Thomas: I propose that the Mayor stands a dinner out of his salary (laughter) —A discussion took place as to how and when the Castle and Park should be formally opened. —Alderman D. W. Jones said that railings wera needed to be erected to keep people off the land which had been sub-lot.—Councillor Dan Thomas thought it would be wise to adjourn the formal opening, but allow the gates to ba opened on Thursday, so that people might walk round from lodge to lodge, and so declare the Castle the town's property.—The Surveyor replied that notice-boards could bo put up by Thursday, but not the railings, as the men would not work on Monday and Tuesday.— Councillor J. Davies (Cyfarthfa) moved, and Alderman T. J. Evans seconded, that the Castla Grounds be opened on Bank Holiday.—Councillor F. Pedler supported, as he said that the work. people would not be free on Thursday.—Alder- man J. M. Berry and Councillor H. M. Lloyd referred to the fact that an enterprising towns- man had gone to nearly a thousand pounds in providing sports and entertainments at Peny- darren Park on Bank Holiday, Tuesday and Wednesday The townspeople had been crying out for somebody to move and get visitors into the town, and they did not think it was right to spring the opening of the Park upon such an enterprising citizen.—Alderman Rowland Evana came to the rescue by suggesting that the Cyfarthfa Castle and Grounds be formally opened at five o'clock on Saturday, 5th June, and that the Cyfarthfa and Merthyr Municipal Band attend and give an al-fresco concert, and this was unanimously agreed to. Councillor D. J. Lewis Will the Park be open for picnics this summer?—The Mayor: Yes, aa soon as we can get the water laid on. There ifl water in the lodges, and if parties want water in the meantime they can get it from those lodges and carry it to the Castle.—The Surveyor was instructed to get the work of erecting the fencing pushed on as soon as possible, and also to see that the boilers, tables, etc., were provided in the Castle for picnic parties.
Dowlais Com pensation Case. At Merthyr County Court on Friday, Mr. A. Parsons (instructed by Mr. A. F. Hill, Car. diff), on behalf of Messrs. Guest, Keen and Netttetotds, Ltd., asked His Honour to ter- minate or diminish" a weekly payment award- ed to Owen Williams in respect of an acci- dent which he sustained at tht Dowlak Col- hery on the 11th February, 19(}. whereby ha lost his left eye —Mr. Hill-Kelly (instructed by. Messrs. D. W. Jones and Co.. Glebeland-street, Merthyr) opposed the application.—Dr. Tat* ham Thompson, of Cardiff, said the man, whd now worked at Dowlais Quarry, was perfectly, wl1, and able to resume his old work as an assistant repairer.—Mr. Hill Kelly urged that there was no change of circumstances, which view His Honour upheld, and dismissed th. application with costs.
SPRINGS' DISILLUSIONS. LONDON, Thursday. The advent of spring is not always an unmixed blessing. Spots, pimples, blackheads, rash, etc., often appear at this season of the year, on the face, neck and arms, causing intense discomfort and oftentimes humiliation. Thanks to Cadum, a marvellous new discovery, sufferers may at last rejoice in spring, knowing that their spring troubles will disappear after a few applications of Cadum- A new 6d. size has been introduced. which is sufficient to remove minor eruptions and other skin blemishes.

Young) are stoadily coming in, over 500 having been received. Readers who have not yet given their coupons are asked to fill them in and forward them to Mr. Young, Y.M.C.A., Church- street, Merthyr. PERSONAL.—Mr. E. H. Musgrove, L.D.S., has been elected president of the South Wales and Monmouthshire branch of the British Dental Association, at the annual meeting at Llanelly last Thursday. Mr. Musgrove delivered his presidental address. WATER SUPPLY.—The work of scraping the 14-inch water main between Pentwyn reservoir and Penybryn filter beds has just been com- pleted, with the result that the flow of water at Penybryn has been much increased. The Borough Engineer, Mr. T. F. Harvey, says that the progress of the scraper through the last length was very slow, owing to the large quantity of incrustation. There were stones in the main at different points. TRAMS TO CEFN.—On Wednesday, at a meeting of the General Purposes Committee of the Corporation, a letter was read from the Board of Trade, stating that they had extended the time for the completion of the electric tram line to Cefn to 1911, but declined to sanction the abandonment of that portion of the line between the Rising Sun and the Morning Sun, Cefn.—The latter anouncement was received with applause. CATHOLIC YOUNG MEN'S SOCIETY.-On Mon- day night Mr. P. McLouehlin was entertained to a farewell dinner, followed by a smoking concert, at the rooms, 'Morgantown. After dinner the Rev. Fr. Hind, in the unavoidable absence of the Rev. Canon Wade, presented Bro. Mc Loughlin with an address, and in a few wcll- chosen words wished him every prosrerity and blessing in his new sphere. At the concert which followed songs were rendered by Messrs. R. Healv, F. Pearce, R. Ecilly, J. McDonald comic songs by Messrs. D. Barry, M. Y Riviiin and J. Collins and recitations were given by Mr. M. Moran. SCHOOL CHILDREN'S SKIN AFFECTIONS.—At I S a meeting of the School Management Committee, on Wednesday, Dr. Walsh, "Medical Inspector of School Children, reported that he had ex- amined 815 school children at Abermorlais, Aberfan, TrOiarris, etc., and fovind fifty cases of skin affections. Many suffered from itch on an average for five-and-a-half weeks, whereas, if properly treated, no child should so suffer longer than ten days. Many had Suffered from ringworm for seventeen weeks, whereas, no child should so suffer longer than two months, Supposing each child were two weeks out of school longer than he or she should be, and estimating that there were one thousand children so suffering out of 17.000 school children in the borough, he estimated that the Corporation lost two thousand shillings in grants,or £100 a year. which would be sufficient to pay for a school nurse.—Councillor Dan j Thomas said he would be sorry to learn that this state of things was general in all schools it would be a serious state of things.—Dr. Walsh said it would take him twelve months to go through all the schools in the borough, but he could not examine all the children in that period. A child had suffered from ringworm for fourteen months, and was out of school most of that time.—A committee was appointed to confer with Dr. Walsh and report. WATER SUPPLY TO CYFARTHFA CASTLE.—At a meeting of the Waterworks Committee, on Wednesday, Councillor David John presiding, the Borough Engineer (Mr. T. F. Harvey) reported upon the means of supplying water at Cyfarthfa Castle. He said it would be cheaper to make a connection with the 6-inch main in the Pandy-road, and lay a 4-inch main up the main drive to the front of the Castle, branching off with 3-inch pipes for hydrants, etc. This, however, would undoubtedly have the effect of diminishing the supply to Pen- rheolgerrig and Clwydyfagwr, which is not at present as efficient as he would like to see it. The proposed new 3-inch main from Pontsticill through Vaynor and Cefn was the only satis- factory solution of the difficulty of adequately supplying Heolgerrig, Clwydyfagwr, Vaynor and Cefn. Another method would be to extend the pipe from the Round House, Brecon-road, through which water is distributed from Peny- bryn filter beds and not from the higher level. He estimated the cost of a 4-inch main to the front of the Castle, with a 3-inch branch to terminate in the quadrangle near the coach- house, as follows :—From the Pandy-road up main drive, f 86 from the Round House through Park, f,.134.-It was agreed that the work be done at the cost of £ 86.
