I MINES INSPECTORS' AND WELSH QUESTIONS IX THE HOUSE OF COMMONS. Air. Edgar Jones (L.) asked the Home Sec- retary in the House of Commons on June 23rd whether he could state the new arrangements for the inspection of mines in South Wales, the names of the various grades of inspectors, the towns at which they will reside, which of the inspectors have a competent know ledge of the Welsh language, and whether the divi- sional inspector would take charge of the in- quiries usually made by the Home Office im- mediately after an explosion or similar dis- aster. aster. Mr. Masterman replied: Particulars of the new arrangement of the mines inspection dis- tricts which follows the scheme recommended by the Royal Commission on Mines were pub- lished in the newspapers last April. The names and residential towns of the different 11 grades of inspectors in South Wales are as follows: Divisional inspector-W. -ktkinsoii, Bridgend for the present. He will remove later to Cardiff. Senior inspectors—J. Dyer Lew is (Swan- sea), F. J. Trump (Cardiff1. F. N. White (Newport). Junior inspeetors-A. Pearson (Bridg- end), T. A. Davies (Cardiff), J. AI. Carey (Newport). Mr. Atkinson do not speak Welsh. Mr. Davies. who was transferred from the South- ern district on the transference of Monmouth- shire (there being no other Welsh-speaking junior), has some knowledge of Welsh. All the other inspectors named have a competent knowledge of the Welsh language. The divi- sional inspector, who is. perhaps, of all the inspectors in the United Kingdom, the one witn the greatest expert knowledge in regard to explosions would, of course, take charge of the inquiries which would follow any serious accident, but he would always have the assist- ance of one or more of the inspectors who act under him.
SOUTH GLAMORGAN POLL. WHERE SHALL VOTES BE COUNTED? At the meeting of the Glamorgan County Council on June 23rd. ir, J. Blandy Jen- kins, J.P., in the chair, the Local Govern- ment Committee reported that having further considered the application of the Barry Urban Council that the votes in the Parliamentary elections for South Glamorgan should be counted at Barry, and the replies of the vari- ous District Councils in the division thereto, the committee recommended that an order lx> made that the place of counting votes and of the declaration of the poll at future elections be Pontyclun. Alderman D. H. Williams moved, as an amendment, and Councillor J. R. Llewellyn seconded, that the place of counting votes and declaring the poll be within the division of South Glamorgan, and that the recommen- dation of the committee be referred back for further consideration. The Chairman: Behind that motion is the desire to get Barry appointed as the place for counting. (Laughter.) I The amendment was carried as against the recommendation of the committee, but when I it was put as a substantive motion. Councillor O. H. Jones moved a further amendment that the votes be counted at Cardiff, as hitherto, but this was lost. The Chairman then moved another amend- ment that the matter be simply TefeTred back with no stipulation that the place for count- ing the votes be within the electoral division of South Glamorgan, and this was seconded by Councillor O. H. Jones, and finally carried.
SIR S. T. EVANS' BARGAIN. Sir Samuel Evans, the President of the Divorce Court, attended the dispersal in I King-street, London, on Friday of a portion of the Armstrong heirlooms, and was a keen follower of the sale. He purchased a water- fall attributed to Turner for 14 guineas. At the close of the sale he hurriedly signed a cheque, declined the proffered assistance of a porter, and carried the picture to his motor- car. Sir Samuel Evans had evidently ob- tained a bargain, for the picture in 187G was sold for 140 guineas.

PONTYCYMMER. Off to South Africa.-Oia Friday, Mr. Thomas Arnott, High-street, left the legality to join his brother, who has been in South Africa upwards of five years. He is a ton of the late Mr. John Arnott, who was Avell known at Pontycymmer. Funeral.—The funeral took place at St. John's Churchyard, Aberkenfig, on Tuesday afternoon of Mrs. Jacob, Pant-street, Panty- gog, aged 55 years.

The service at the house was conducted by the Vicar (Hey. W. Jones), and the cortege left to meet the 3.30 train for the place of inter- ment. Seven children arc. left to mourn their loss. Scriptural Examination.—The report of the written examination of the English Baptist Sunday School Union of Wales, held in April, shows that Zion School takes the premier place in the Union. Should the school be as successful in the November examination, the shield M ill probably remain at Pontycym- mer for another year. The first prize in the the shield will probably remain at Pontycym- mer for .another year. The first prize in the adult division was secured by Mr. John Ed- wards, G. and L., Pantygog. In the writ- ten examination 45 are entitled to certificates and 48 in the oral, showing that 100 per cent, of the school successfully went through the test. Sunday School Anniversary.— Successful Sunday School anniversary services were held at the Primitive Methodist Chapel on Sunday. The three services were exclusively devoted to recitations and singing. The literary part of the services was especially good, and the I singing, under the control of Mr. T. Roes, formed a pleasing part 'of the programme. Mr. W. J. Norton presided at the organ. The series of meetings were conducted by the pastor, Mr. E. W. Hough. On Monday, the annual tea and demonstration took place, the principal thoroughfares being paraded despite threatening rrin. Suitable marching tunes were rendered by the choir, and ten was sub- sequently provided in the vestry, followed by games. CLUBS OR HOTELS. At the meeting of the Glamorgan Licensing Committee on Monday, Mr. John Sankev, K.C., with whom was Mr. St. John Francis Williams (instructed by Mr. David Llew- ellyn), applied on behalf of Thomas Jenkins, Alexandra Hotel. Pontycymmer, for an ale- house license. A similar application was be- fore the court last yeyar. The present appli- cation, learned counsel explained, was granted by the Bridgend magistrates, and lie now asked for confirmation. He also pointed to the fact that four or five clubs have sprung up in the district as evidence of the necessity of additional hotel accommodation. The monopoly value at Bridgend was fixed at £ 3,000. Evidence was called, showing the in- crease in the number of houses and also in the population, which, it was urged, justified the application. Mr. Lincoln Reed, Mr. A. Parsons, and Mr. Clarke Williams opposed on behalf of certain interests. The application was granted. LOCAL OWNER. Objection was offered by Superintendent Cole, at the meeting of the Glamorgan Licen- sing Committee on Monday, to the renewal of the Griffin Hotel, Hendreforgan, of which the registered o"i- was Thomas AVilliams. Llan- harran Hotel, Pontycymmer. Mr. Ivor I Vachell, who applied for the renewal, said the hotel was built in anticipation of the dis- covery of coal in the immediate neighbour- hood. A seam of coal 5ft. thick was dis- covered a week ago, and there was a prospect of 5,000 men being employed in the neigh- bourhood. Tho license was renewed.
PONTYRHYL. Encounter With A Snake.—On Sunday evening a young mata named Mr. Benjamin Jones was badly bitten by a snake about his neck and ear. The young man, who resides with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Jones, in West Rhondda Row, Pontyrhil, is, unfortunately, partially deaf and dumb. Jones, in West Rhondda Row, Pontyrhil, is, unfortunately, partially deaf and dumb. During week days he makes himself generally useful at the links with Pontycymmer Golf Club, and on Sunday evening took a stroll in the vicinity of the golf course, and lay down in the ferns and shrubs and fell asleep. He was awakened from his slumbers by the bite of a huge snake. Jones, who was bleeding profusely gripped hold of the reptile and squeezed, and ultimately succeeded in killing it. Jones has since been in a critical condi- j tion.
OGMORE VALE. I Short List.-Mr. D. C. Williams. Aber Council School, has been selected on the short list for the headmastership of Skewen Boys' School, one of the largest and finest schools in the county. Outing.—The shop assistants of the valley held their annual outing on Wednesday, the rendezvous being Weston-super-Mare. Busi- ness premises throughout the valley were closed for t" occasion, and a large number availed themselves of the trip. Noted Divine.—The officers of the Primi- tive Methodist Church have succeeded in se- curing a promise of a visit in the near future of Mr. Guttridge, one of their finest orators and most noted divines. The commodious Welsh Baptist Church of Bethlehem will be placed gratuitously at their disposal. Funeral Sermon.—Rev. E. W. Hough on Sunday evening last preached the funeral sermon of the late Mrs. William Capel at Bethel Primitive Methodist C'hureh, and paid an eloquent tribute to the memory of the ffe- ceased lady, who was one of the oldest and most faithful members of the church. The large congregation stood in silence when the organist, Mr. Sam Fox, played the "Dead March" in SauL Special Services.—The half-yearly preach- ing services in connection with Philadelphia Welsh Baptist Church were held on Sunday and Monday last. The pulpit was occupied by the Rev. E. G. Thomas, Pencoed, who preached a series of eloquent and. instructive .r- sermons to large congregations. The sing- in*; was ably led by Mr. Thomas Williams. Collections were made at each servioe towards liquidating the debt of the building. Obituary.—We regret to record the death of the wife of Mr. Dan Lewis, at the compar- atively young age of 28 years. Great sym- pathy is felt for the widower in his bereave- ment. The funeral took place on Monday afternoon at Tynewydd Cemetery, and the large attendance clearly showed the high esteem in which the deceased was held in the place. Rev. T. M. Jones, Baptist minister. officiated.—Great sympathy is also expressed with Mr. Harry Adams and family in the death of Mrs. Adams on Sunday. Success.—The large circle of friends of Mr. George Colo will be pleased to learn that he has passed the preliminary certificate exami- nation of the Board of Education sufficiently high to be admitted a student of Borough- Training College, Isleworth, London. This is the foremost residential training college for the scholastic profession, and Mr. Cole de- serves congratulations on his success. He is at present on the staff of the Aber School, and will be leaving for London in September. Mr. Cole has had a brilliant career, and is a past student of Bridgend County School, from where he took his senior Welsh exam. with honours. He has subsequently passed his London Matriculation. Scholarship.—Mr. H. G. Madlev has been awarded an engineering scholarship it 'tbe University College, Cardiff, on the results of his examinations held by the County Commit- tee last April. The scholarship entitles the winner to a three weeks' free tuition in en- gineering instruction, together with 1:4 to- wards his maintenance during his stay at Cardiff. It may be interesting to state that an uncle of Mr. Madley was amongst the Companions of the Imperial Service Order issued by the King. Colonel Lewis George Madley, ex-Commissioner of Police of South Australia, recently returned to Cardiff, where he has set up his residence. He was born at Llandogo, near Tintern Abbey, and has been in the Commonwealth for about 48 years. Several other relatives of the Colonel are resident in the valley.
I NANTYMOEL. Preaching Services.—The annual preach- ing services in connection with Gilead English Calvinistic Methodist Church, Nantvmoel, were held on Saturday evening and through- out Sunday, when eloquent and stirring dis- courses were delivered by the Rev. H. Harris Hughes, B.A., Oswestry, to crowded and en- thusiastic congregations. The singing of the choir, under the capable leadership of Mr. W. Hugh Jones, was of the usual high standard, and added greatly to the effectiveness of the services. Mr. W. H. John ably manipulated the organ. Registration Work.—The local branch of the League of Young Liberals, in conjunction with the local Liberal-Labour Association, have undertaken to keenly follow the regis- tration of voters for the impending new list of voters for Nantvmoel. The place has been divided up into suitable divisions, and can- vassers appointed to particularly see that oc- cupiers of dwelling-houses legitimately en- titled to a vote shall be placed upon the re- gister. Mr. Lewis Griffiths presided over the joint conference at the Workmen's-hall committee-room on the 24th ult. Mr. Dafydd Jones and Mr. T. J. Job were appointed sec- retaries. Carnival Meeting.—An enthusiastic and well-attended meeting, capably presided over by Mr. J. H. Peregrine, was held at Mor- ruzzi's Rooms, Blaenogwy, on Monday even- ing to further the impending sports and car- nival on behalf of local movements. Mr. Walter Graves, the energetic secretary, re- ported the results of his investigations to pro- vide some special attractions for the occasion. I.L.P.—Mr. Edward Black, the district or- ganiser of the Independent Labour Party, delivered an able and rousing open-air ad-I dress near the Workmen's-hall, Pricetown, on Thursday evening of last week. Mr. Black was listened to with keen attention and in- terest by a fair crowd.
GILFACH GOCH. Talbot Arms License.—At the meeting of the Glamorgan Licensing Committee on Mon- day, Superintendent Cole, replying to Mr. A. C. Thomas, B.L., for the renewal authorities, said the Talbot Arms was old and in a bad state of repair, and was not required. The court renewed the license. Competition and Bad Trade.—A first meet- ing of creditors was held at Cardiff on Satur- day of Ernest John Williams, Coronation- road, Gilfach Goch, formerly fruiterer and cab proprietor at Aberaman. Debtor attri- buted his failure to loss of a horse, bad trade, sickness in family, heavy prices paid for stock through competition, and heavy working ex- penses. The gross liabilities are £ 211, and the deficiency C195. Debtor commenced busi- ness as a fruiterer and cab proprietor in 1904 with a capital of £ 10, his savings. He is now working as a colliery ostler, earning 38s. a week. The Official Receiver (Mr. George David) remains trustee. Death Follows Accident.—Richard Hughes, collier, employed at the Britannic-Merthyr Colliery, Gilfach Goch, started on Saturday night to walk from Gilfach Goch over the mountain to his home at Clydach Vale, in company with William John Mitchell. In the darkness they lost the path. When they had gone some distance they lost one another. Mitchell arrived home eventually, having re- gained the pathway at dawn. When Hughes arrived at his lodgings at New Howard-ter- race he was bleeding from wounds in the head, and complained of injury to his stom- ach, saying that he had fallen into a quarry near the Cambrian Colliery. After the ac- cident he had crawled out of the quarry, and with difficulty reached home. Medical assis- tance was at once summoned, but after lin- gering in pain Hughes died on Tuesday morn- ing-

OGMORE AND GARW COUNCIL The meeting of the Ogmore aiai C-irw Council on Tuesday was presided over by Alderman W. Llewellyn. Ihere were al&o present: Rev. T. B. Phillips. Dr. E.. J. Parry, J.P., Messrs. Llewellyn Jones, Evan David. Thomas Williams, Jenkin Phillips, D. J. Thomas, Howell Lewis, Jenkin iliiams, Evan Griffiths, David Thomas, and the clerk (Mr. S. H. St-ockwood), the deputy surveyor (Mr. Oliphant Jones), etc. FOOTBALL. A letter was read from the Nantvmoel and Ogmore Association Football Cluh asking for permission to use the Council's ground dur- ing next season. Rev. T. B. Phillips moved that the request be granted, subject to the usual conditions. This was seconded. Mr. D. J. Thomas did not think it should be granted because the other club in the valley, which was an older organisation, should have prior claim. I [ Rev. T. B. Phillips: Let th«m make their j application again, then. j It was then agreed that inquiries shouJd be j made before granting the application. ANONYMOUS. ) The Clerk said he had a letter Avhich had no date or name attached. Did the Council! desire anonymous communications to be read? The Chairman: Perhaps the writer lias for- gotten his name, as well as the date. The Clerk then read the letter, complaining against the condition of a back lane near j Cardiff-street, Ogmore Vale, and asking the ) Council to remedy the state of affairs. Rate- If payers were asking. What are our Council- j lors doing?" The letter was signed, Still a Ratepayer." The Ogmore Inspector was instructed to visit the spot, and report. [ ANOTHER COMPLAINT. Mr. D. L. B ees, Pontycymmer, wrote in- j forming the Council that he had, during the last two years, called the attention of the j sanitary inspector and a number of Council- lors to the disgraceful state of the back lanes at Alexandra-road and Albanv-road, caused by the surface water flowing over it. He had been advised that he could claim for damage to his property. Dr. Parry proposed that the clerk reply the Council had nothing to do with the matter. The back lane was not the property of the Council, and the water came from higher ground, and the estate should be called upon to carry the water somewhere else. This was seconded, and agreed to. The Chairman This is not the only back lane in our district which is beginning to get a nuisance. I don't know how they have come into existence, unless we have asked the owners of property to provide back lanes, but I think something should be done to ensure that they are kept in proper condition. TOUCHING! The Ogmore Valley Electric Light Company wrote asking if there was a possible likelihood of receiving the cheque due to them from the Council. They wished they could touch the Councillors' hearts, so they could soon receive it. (Laughter.) MANAGERS. j The Glamorgan County Council wrote that they intended to appoint a body of managers, six in number, for each of the Higher Elemen- tary Schools in the Council's district, and they required two nominations by the Council for Ogmore and two for the Garw. The Rev. T. B. Phillips: I take it the Chairman, Rev. W. Saunders. and Dr. Thomas will be members? The Chairman: And possibly Mr. Lynch Blosse or Alderman Thomas. Mr. D. J. Thomas proposed Mr. Llewellyn Jones for the Garw. Rev. T. B. Phillips proposed Mr. Evan David, and thought they should have one for the lower part of the Garw district. Air. D. J. Thomas: You have got one. Rev. T. B. Phillips: Mr. Saunders repre- sents the Bettws division. It was ultimately agreed to nominate Mr. Evan David and Mr. Llew. Jones for the Garw, and Messrs. Howell Lewis and T. M. Jones (Gilfach) for the Ogmore. SURVEYOR'S BOOKS. The Deputy Surveyor, in reply to a quefi- tion, said he had received certain books from the surveyor (Mr. Dawkin Williams), who had resigned. NO OBJECTION. A letter was read from the }ocal Pensions Committee, stating it would not be necessary for the Council to appoint members on that body next year or the year after. The Clerk: You don't object, do you? | (Laughter.) STREET WATERING. The Ogmore Gas and Water Company wrote that they had found it necessary to re- quest the Council's men not to draw water from the company's main between noon and three o'clock. The drawing in the mining districts was very heavy at this time, and, in very bad weather as at present, there was considerable extravagance and waste. The addition of water carts frequently reduced the pressure to a point which deprived the houses of water on the higher reaches of the hill sides when it was so much needed for the men returning from work. They felt sure the Council would appreciate the necessity of a good all-round supply during the hours i mentioned, and make arrangements for the street watering to be done when least incon- venient to the inhabitants. There appeared to be no reason why the street watering could not be done two or three hours earlier. Dr. Parry: I don't see that we should, be- cause if we do we shall give inconvenience to others. It was agreed to refer the matter to the deputy surveyor. TARRING THE ROADS. A question was asked as to when the work of tarring the roads would commence. The Deputy Surveyor: As soon as the weather is good enough. The Chairman: I think there was an ar- rangement to commence in the Garw first. (Laughter.) It was agreed to instruct the Surveyor to carry out the work as soon as possible. THE SURVEYOR'S STAFF. A letter was read from Mr. John Griffiths asking the Council to continue the 10s. allow- ance towards the maintenance of a horse. In the terms of the Council's recent resolution, the payments would cease. It was remarked that Mr. Griffiths was as- sisting the deputy surveyor. The Chairman: We shall have to take several matters into consideration as soon as possible, especially the question of the sur- veyor's staff. It ought to be done early, be- cause the acting surveyor might be in some difficulty, having no assistance. We must put our house in order. I It was agreed that a special meeting of the General Purposes Committee be held to dis- cuss all matters relating to the' Survevor's I staff. ZYMOTIC DISEASES. The Medical Officer (Dr. D. J. Thomas) re- Sorted that twelve eases of zymotic diseases ad occurred in the district three of diph- theria, one typhoid, and eight scarlet fever. They were distributed as follows:—Six scar- let fever, two diphtheria, and one typhoid in the Garw two scarlet fever in Nantvmoel; one scarlet fever in Tynewydd; and one diph- theria in Nantvmoel. Most of the cases had been removed to the hospital. j ALLEGED OVERCROWDING. Dr. Thomas also reported that at No. 5 Dayid-str. Blaengarw, he found a serious case of over-crowding. Seven people were sleeping in 1ie bedroom, two lodgers in nn- other, three in another, one in the front room downstairs, which was the living room bv dav | of four people. Thirteen people in all'occu- pied the house. He inspected several house? at ood-street, Pontycymmer, and fouad that they were originally built as one house, but now converted into two. The second or j back part consisted of one small kitchen and one small bedroom, but now they were let as apartments by the people living in the front part of the house. He considered them too small to be occupied by families unless they had the free run of the front tmrt of the house. PANTYGOG BATHS. Upon visiting the baths at Pantygog, the Medical Officer found the water coming from a brook where the scavenging tip is washed by it. The tip was on tiie edge of the brook, and refuse was constantly finding its way to the brook, and was very liable to pollute the water. To remedy this the Cauncil could take about 60 yards of piping up the stream, and would tap the brook above the tip, thus securing unpolluted water for the baths. SLAUGHTER HOUSES. The Garw Inspector (Air. Owen) reported that 17 visits had been paid to the slaughter- houses during the month. Everything was found satisfactory: the occupiers had been called upon to white-wash the walls, and the request was being complied with.
BAZAAR AT BLAENGARW. I Monday was a red-letter day in the history of Trinity English Calvinistic Methodist Chllrch, when Mrs. W. Johnson, Lalestor. House, Laleston, formally opened a two days' bazaar at the Workmen's Institute, the object of which was to wipe off the debt on the church. For many months the lady mem- bers of the church (superintended by Minses J. Burnell, headmistress of Blaengarw Girls' School, and B. M. Roberts, of the same school) laboured assiduously in order that the venture might prove a decided financial suc- cess. The stalls were well dressed with a good show of useful apparel. One stall especially was noted for the grand display of fretwork, executed by Mr. Priddle, who de- serves great credit lor the untiring manner in which he entered upon his work. Apart from I the ordinary stalls there were various side shows and attractions. A great share of the work rested upon the capable shoulders of the general secretary. Air. D. Woosnam, who manifested keen interest from the outset, and also upon Dr. J. B. McCutcheon, who dis- charged the duties of corresponding secre- tary. The ladies who presided at the stalls were untiring in their efforts to reach the ob- ject in view. The opening ceremony on Monday was performed at 3.30 by Airs. Johnson, who re- ferred to the illness of the pastor of the church. Rev. P. Marchant Lewis, and re- gretted that he Mas unable to attend. She spoke in eulogistic terms of the attractiveness of the stalls, and bore high testimony to the good work of the ladies, and expressed a hope that. the efforts made would be attended with abundant success. Airs. Johnson, after de- claring the bazaar open, was subsequently presented with a magnificent bouquet by Miss M. M. Tudor on behalf of the promoters. Mr. E. Roberts proposed, and lr. Walters seconded, a hearty vote of thanks to Mrs. Johnson for complying with their request to open the bazaar. The sales afterwards pro- ceeded at a rapid rate. The following were the stall-holders:—Ice cream, Mr. Priddle: sweets and refreshments, Mrs. Roberts and Mrs. Williams; toy stalls, Misses Evans and Rees; gents' stall, Miss Phippin and Mrs. Davies: blouses and dresses. Misses Sugg and Deere; variety (1), Mrs. and Miss Saunders: variety (2), Mrs. Walters and Miss Tudor: white linen, Mesdames Davies, Moore, James and Milton; pinafore, Mrs. Lloyd, Mrs. Thomas, and Mrs. Cunningham: fancy work.

Another success was recorded on Tuesday. A great source of attraction was the washing competition, hat-trimming, nail-driving, and golf.

Different to the previous week, when Tondu were defeated, runs proved very hard to get last Saturday, which was perhaps due to the heavy pitch and the good bowling of both sides. St. Mary's batted first, and. but for a stand by Price and W. Plater, who scored 13 and 8 respectively, they would have fared very badly. Their total score was 35. Llanharran, on going in. did not do much better. A good effort by Pascoe. who scored an invaluable 13, brought victory to the homesters. Pascoe was ably backed up by J. Barkle. who con- tributed a useful 11. Llanharran won by 7 runs and two wickets. For ihe visitors Gale and Price bowled well. The home analysis read as follows:—Alerry, 6. wickets for 16 runs: Barkle, one for 11 Phiilips three for 5. During the interval, through the kindness of Mrs. J. Blandy Jenkins, tea was provided to both teams on the field. Scores:- St. Mary's, Cardiff. A. Milford. c Phillips, b Merry 0 G. Plater, b Merry 0 H. Jones, b J. Barkle I A. Gale, b Merry 2 W.

It is invaluable for those suffering with colds, pneumonia, or any serious illness, or prostration caused by sleeplessness, or worry of any kind, when the bodv has a ji general feeling of weakness and lassitude bend for a copy of the pamphlet of testi- monials, which carefully read and consider well: then buy a bottle (sold in two sizes, 2s. yd. and 4s. 6d ) at your nearest Chemist or fctores, but when purchasing see that the 7™ *^ns"is on the label> and bottle, for without which none are genu- ine.
