Porth. The ratepayers of Porth have just had the proverbial straw put upon the camel's back, in the shape of increased assess- ments. This has caused some murmurings, ana we learn an appeal against them is about to be made. A Ratepayers' Asso- ciation is very much desired in Porth. Who will the organiser be f The Baptist Chapel, Hannah Street, held its Sunday School outing last Mon- day. This event had been postponed from the previous Thursday owing to the bad weather, and, as usual, the scholars paraded the main streets, headed by the Oymmer Brass Band. They, then pro- ceeded to the field (kindly lent by Mr. Charles Jenkins), where they enjoyed themselves to their heart's content. An unpleasant incident occurred near the railway station on Wednesday morn- ing last. Some children were playing on the road, when one child got struck in the eye by a stone thrown by one of his companions. This may result in the loss of one eye. Just now the word carnival" seems to be a sort of a. mysterious password in Porth. The constructors of the various attractions in the procession are moving about in a most mysterious manner. But notwithstanding all this secrecy, we may inform our readers there, is likely to. be a parody on the new tramway system, in the shane of a tramcar for service on the Birchgrove and Charles Street section. However, we hardly think that this new enterprise will be such a. success as the orthodox tramway; the prohibitive prices will not, we think, appeal to the masses. We learn there is a, likelihood of a repetition of the recent successful trip to London held under the auspices of the Porth and District Chamber of Trade early in August. The latest betting by a, prominent shopkeeper is £1 to a goose- berry that there will not be an empty seat on the next corridor express excur- sion from Porth to London. J.
