Forthcawt seems to be enjoying a second summer. There are now to be seen in bloom lilac trees, geraniums, roses, primroses, wall- flowers and' other kinds of flowers. Straw- berry plants also are flowering. Tomatoes are also dcing very well, and some splendid scarlet runners have been plucked. The Brid^e-nd' Pensions Committee have de- cided to advertise for a clerk who can speak Welsh. As the clerk will not be required to personally interrogate applicants, this stipul- ation savours of ol'ann ishness. It will, by the way, disqualify several good Welshmen unable to speak the vernacular who intended to apply. There are some good oeople left, even in Cardiff, in spite of the "dirty Linen" the local papers have been washing in' public about their own town. A Porthcawl young lady was in the city on Saturday last, and lost her purse. The lady's name was inside, and a Cardiff gentleman who found* it immediately wrote the young llady of his find. A Baengarw resident wrote to the Coun- cil complaining about a defective drain. I think you have an odd way of doing business," he commented1, and Dr. Parry told me that there was a special meeting called to considler this very point." Mr. T. C. Jones remarked that he was not aware that the Council bad belid a meeting to consider its "oddity." Copies of United States newspapers to hand contain; glowing reports of the performances of Madame Hughes;-Thomas's Welsh Ladies' Choir, which is evidently taking town after town by storm. There are only two objec- tions to the reports. The one is the persis- tent statement that the choir belongs to Car- diff, though different members hail from Coy- trahen. Bridgend, and various other places, and the other is the description, in one paper, of the Welsh National Antem as Hen WhO. Fv n Ad Au."

A sturdy suppor- ter of the club, rejoicing over a defeat of Car- diff West last Saturday by 8 goals to nil, thus replies: — It was an autumn evening. The captain's work was done. And so around the hockey field She sauntered in the s'un, While by her walked, demure, serene, One of the Bridgend Hockey Team. She- saw the marks of conflict, The relics of a team. The buttons and the hair-pins That told of strife supreme. And just beneath her erirlish tread A wisp of something long and red. The captain took it from the girl, Who stood expectant by, Then spreading out that ruddy curl, And with a natural sigh. Tis some young woman's hair." said she, Who fell in that great victory." fight 'erainst Cardiff West was lonig, AN thought the day was lost, But Bridgend; girls were brave and strong, And counted not the cost, And everybody said' quoth she, be a famous victory. And when at last the fkrht was o'er, And' all our strength was gone. And' Cardiff West had fled the field, 8 to none, Them everybody said." quoth she, was a famous victory. t' 0< And everybody praised Bridgend, That they the fight did win, For they last Saturday had been Defeated, long and grim, But playing little girls, you see, One needs must give them victory." —YMLADDWR.
