GARW GLEANINGSI (By LLOFFWR ARALL.) Owing to scarcity in foodstuffs, Christmas cakes and puddiugs are likely to be less rich than hitherto. We had hoped a short time back to be able to celebrate this Christmas with "Peace on earth, and good-will towards men." Circumstances, however, have changed since then, and it is now certain that this Christmas will still see fighting on all fronts except the Russian. I However, "Lloffwr Arall" takes this oppor- tunity of wishing all readers a very Happy Christmas during these trying times. For his pluck we congratulate the enthusias- tic- Ponty-ite who stands in a queue among a lot of children, with a jug in his hand. Does he afterwards carry it half-way to Blaengarw, where he is met by the young brother of his fiance? A gentleman, seeing a young boy in a danger- ous position on a high wall in Oxford Street, said to him, "What would you say if you were to fall from there?" The boy, who is only four years old, answered quite cheerfully, "Land safe, sir!" Some commotion was caused at a local fish shop by the attempts made by customers to kiss one of the assistants—under the mistletoe. Of course, we understand many are "dying" for sugar, but a Garwite goes the limit when he carries sugar in a mourning envelope to put in his "whiskey hot." A Ffaldau miner, after carrying his jacket on his arm all the way to work, put it on when he reached his destination. He must have been a day-wage earaer! A certain "nut" went to BLaengarw to attend a concert a week before it was announced to take place. Hard luck! A member wanted a shave and hair cut at the Pantygog Market on Sunday with a horse hair-clipper. The "hair cut" worked all right, but the shave was a complete failure. One of the members who is very keen on the Market's reputation, went a "Lang" way to fetch a corn razor and hot water; but without success. The chairman, however, came to the rescue, and saved the situation. We regret to learn that a local church mem- ber found it necessary to purchase two ducks on Sunday. Was it the enhanced prices that prevented him from purchasing on Monday? Fearing to trust a friend, a local "nut," pre- vious to playing a game of "tip it," actually weighed his beer! After the game he intended giving his friend a drink, if he won-but "nothing doing"! A miner, hearing there was no work, returned home and bathed. After learning later there was work, he again put on his working clothes, and duly presented himself at the colliery. Great patriot, boys!
