GARW GLEANINGS (By LLOFFWR ARALL.) i We are pleased to inform all Garwites who subscribed towards the cricket set that Mr. Morgan Hughes (treasurer) has at last received a letter of acknowledgment from Sgt. J. Wile. It transpired that Sgt. Wile has sent two letters, which appear to have been lost in tran- sit—hence the delay. • • • It was observed that some of our local minis- ters were seen enjoying themselves immensely during "the pictures" at a recent benefit con- cert. < A Ponty surface worker wanted something to hold up the cable wires while he repaired them. He was offered a 60lb. sledge hammer, and a pal with him was seen holding it. Brainy bit of work! < A gentleman meeting another from hi? native heath, greeted him with the remark that a snake was meeting a snake. They were evi- dently Aberdare-ites! • • • Outside a local business premises was seen a queue conducted by the police. • • • The order of the day was "March on"—pre- sumably a new title for butter! • • • We beg to announce to Garw wives, depen- dents and pensioner soldiers, that the authori- ties have decided to pay two weeks' Army al- lowances next week, so they'll be all right over I Christmas! I • • • "Oh, mummy, where's my doggie?" cried a I local wireless operator, but no trace of the ani- mal could be found. Was he later .heard singing, "Oh where, tell me where, is my little doggie gone" Blaengarw Chntches have united for the pur- pose of making presentations to their soldiers and sailors coming home. < < We are pleased to note the young gent who I was not allowed to hold a fur for fear of the "Gleanings" has still the pluck to carry a harp before a large crowd. 0 0 9 He apparently fears the "Gleanings" far more than a crowd of a thousand people! 0 A local lady has taken to knitting at concerts —certainly better than over-much talking. < < A Blaengarw miner was seen carrying butter to an official. 8. This is certainly one way of greasing the wheels! 8 • • A "sportsman" at the lower end of the valley who went out shooting rabbits returned minus his dog. < Is it true he shot the dog in mistake for a rabbit? A rare bit, that! • • • A wag from the lower end of the valley gives the following advice, from past experience, to those who go the pace at Crristmae time:—"Go upstairs backwards"! w < < Who were the two ladies who could never get up early? < < Were they suddenly disturbed by a trap placed in the room containing a live rat?
