A jelly company assembled III the Aubrey Arrns on Saturday evening, when a well-known colliery official offered to pay for drinks round if any member of tha company could successfully negotiate the quick articulation of 'iIf you snuff shop snuff, I'll snuff shop snuff, too."

And whv do the crowds gather so fast in the Ft rat-e ? What, come they to speak of, what com-* they to see ?"Shamus O'Brien." Commercial street, on Monday night after the cinema had closed resembled a market place on a busy day, and all be- cause a father had the welfare of his eldest son at heart. These later days are more ancient than were the days of a quarter of century ago. For why? In those days the father of a family next door might have occasion to thrash his mischievious eldest offspring within an incho f his misguided life, and the next door people would assist, if necessary. In those ancient days a father thought that -although "Love is a boy by poets styl'd Then spare the rod and spoil the child." And, not wanting to spoil the child, the rod was used with generous measure ■and, did that prove unavailing to lead < the erring eldest son into the paths of rectitude and righteousness sterner measures were adopted. We are told, with much solemnity, that these be the days of "namby pambyism" and of the R.S.P.C.C., but we still have amongst us those who have been beaten till they know What wood a cudjel's of by th' blow Some kick'd until they can feel whether A shoe be Spanish or neat's leather."

COLLIERY OFFICIALS AS ENCYCLOPAEDIAS. i ——.—— Speaking at the 17th annual dinner of the Monmouthshire Colliery Officials' Association, Mr. D. A. Thomas said colliery officials were expected to pos- sess universal knowledge. Not only had they to be mining engineers, but geologists, electrical engineers, have a know ledge of law, be able to master half a dozen Acts of Parliament, to learn hundreds of rules which were constantly being altered, and, further they must also have some knowledge of military tactics, because a distin- guished general who was in the Rhon- deb during the time of trouble told them that the collieries had been sunk in the wrong places. (Laughter.) Seriously, he thought it was a question whether recent legislation had contri- buted to the safety of the collieries. The motto of every colliery official should be safety first. Certain, the onus was on the Home Office to show that such legislation had contributed to the safety of the mines in any de- gree commensurate with the enormous cost to the proprietors. He was glad to know that old King Coal was enjoying fairly good health at present. Last summer the First Lord of the Admiralty gave him a dose of oil, but, as they know, he had got over that now, and was all the better for it. The Admiralty were now show- ing a hit more caution, not to say wis- dom. Oil was an excellent thing, but it was rather like the man who was "fond of oysters, when he said "I can't get enough of them." The Dread- nought which were being built now were designed to burn coal and not oil. There was a prosperous time ahead for the coal trade, and he hoped the men would enjoy that prosperity as well as the employers. I »
EMPLOYMENT OF GIRLS AT THE PIT HEAD. A PROTEST BY MINERS' OFFICIAL I In the course of an interview Mr. J. Wadsworth, M.P., and Mr. H. Smith, of the Yorkshire Miners' Asso- ciation, entered a protest against the action of the management at a certain colliery near Wakefield, in, it was al- leged, employing young girls for the screens at the pit head. Mr. Smith said they had heard that about twenty girls had started this kind of work and that the company desired to employ more. The practice of em- ploying girls in the county had been fought very persisently, and during the discussion at the Home Office with re- gard to the new Mines Act. 1911, this question arose. It was then stated that although no provision had been made in the Mines Act to deal with the matter, they had nothing to com- plain of because the system of employ- ing female labour was dying out. It appeared now an attempt was being made to introduce it again, and so far as the officials were concerned they would resist it at all costs. According to the return of His Majesty's Mines Inspector, in 1911 no females were employed at the collieries in Yorkshire; in 1912 seventeen were returned as workers and the same num- ber last year. ,-00-

CWMLLYNFELL NOTES THE SEWERAGE SCHEME. I An interesting ratepayers meeting took place last night (Thursday) at the workmen's lodgeroom, Rhosamman, when the residents in Quarter Bach gathered under the presidency of Mr. Morgan Rees, chairman of the Parish Council, to consider the new sewerage scheme. Two matters were down for discussion,viz., the estimate of the cost of a local scheme of sewerage for Ward 1; and the advisability of opposing the I Amman Valley drainage scheme as it affects the local parish, and to take steps accordingly. It was anticipated that the proceedings would he of a very lively character. BLACK MOUNTAIN COLLIERY. I The rumours to winch reference has been made in these columns for several weeks past concerning the Black Moun- tain Colliery have aroused considerable discussion in the village, and those who were inclined to think that they were groundless will probably he sur- prized to learn that such is certainly not the case. As a matter of fact several labourers, etc., are now working at the colliery, and we have been in- formed on reliable authority that Mr. Morgan, late manager at Cwmllvnfell Colliery, has been appointed to a simi- lar post at the Black Mountain. Fur- ther important developments are an- ticipated in the course of a few days' time. I FOOTBALL GOSSIP. n.. I I 1 .1 I The home team rumiiea their en- gagement with Lougher on the latter's ground on Saturday, and a memorable match ensued, Cwmllynfell being de- feated by 12 points to 3. It is only fair to point out, however, that the local team were greatly handicapped by hav- ing a much weakened side, whilst Lougher, who are acknowledged to be a really superior team, had a strong fifteen in the field as well as the un- doubted advantage of playing on their own ground. Nevertheless the match was a good one, and although so heavi- ly defeated Cwmllvnfell played a plucky game. The local scorer was E. Evans, who "placed" a nice try towards the end of the encounter. Cwmllvnfell are hoping, and indeed expecting, to win back their laurels on the occasion of Lougher's return visit to the local ground. The Seconds entertained Gorseinon, and a fairly attractive game resulted in a draw, each side registering a try. On Saturday the Firsts have a friendly match with Brynamman away, and the Seconds will be at home to Birchgrove in a League match. "GWILYM WYN." I The well-known local bard, Gwilym Wyn, has some beautiful poetry in the current issue of the national magazine "Y Geninen," which signifies that he has not lost his power of writing really excellent verse. I TOMENOWEN WATER SUPPLY. I I Despite the fact that the pipes for conducting the new water supply from Cefnbrvnbrain to Tomen Owen have been lying on the road side for almost a month, no steps have yet been taken to place them in position, and local residents are wanting to know when this is to be done. As has already been pointed out this is an urgent matter, and the work ought to be put in hand as early as possible. There is a rumour to the effect that the delay has been caused through a shortage of labour. I DEATH OF MRS. TOM W. JONES. I Vv e regret to announce the death, which took place on Friday, of Mrs. Mary Hannah Jones, wife of Mr. Tom W. Jones, of Gwilym-road, Cwmllvnfell, a prominent local resident and an ex- president of the co-operative society. Deceased, who was approaching 40 years of age, had not been well for some time, but death was not expected, and came somewhat as a shock to her many friends. The interment took place at the local burial ground on Tuesday afternoon, and was largely attended. The service was conducted by the Rev. D. Jeremy Jones, and among others present were the Rev. J. Rees, Cwm- llvnfell, and the Rev. Ben Davies, Pantteg. Deceased leaves no family. MARRIAGE: REES-PARRY. I An interesting local marriage took place on Friday at Carmel Chapel, Gwauncaegurwen, the contracting par- ties being Mr. Win. Rees, Gwauncae- gurwen, and Miss Bessie Parry, of Gnoil-road, Cwmllynfell, who is well known in the village. The ceremony, which was of a quiet character, was performed by the Rev. D. G. Davies, Carmel, and the Rev. J. Davies, Bryn- gwilym. Mr. and Mrs. Rees are, we understand, to live in Gnoll-road.

CWMTWRCH 1 SUDDEN DEATH OF WELL KNOWN I RESIDENT. A sensation was created in Lower Cwmtwrch and neighbourhood on Tues- day when, it became known that a well known local resident, Mrs. Elizabeth Davies, wife of Mr. John Joshua Davies, of Bethel Cottage, had passed away with startling suddenness the previous evening. Mrs. Davies had apparently been in excellent health up to within a minute of passing away, which adds to the shock of the tragedy, I and much sympathy has been extended to the family in their loss. INQUEST. I The district coroner (Mr. Glyn Price) held an inquest at Bethel on Tuesday afternoon into the circumstances of the death. The husband, John Joshua Davies, fireman, was the first witness, and he stated that deceased, who was 64 years of age, had enjoyed fairly good health all her life, never having suffered from ,erious illness. She was quite well on Monday, and they retired to bed together shortly after 10.15 p.m., during which time his wife chatted to him and referred to the fact that the next door neighbour had been ill for some days. She then laid down, made a slight groan, and passed away in a moment's time. Thomas Scott, son-in-law of the de- ceased, who lived in the same house, said he had known Mrs. Davies about three years altogether, and all that time she had been well and strong. De- ceased appeared to be in her usual state of health on Monday night before going to bed. He spoke to her and she an- swered him in the ordinary way, but he was called by his father-in-law short- ly afterwards, and then found that Mrs. Davies was dead. Dr. Walsh, Ystradgynlais, said he had known deceased for some time but had not attended her, and as far as he knew, she had always been a strong and healthy woman. He was called to the house at about 11 p.m., on Monday but when he arrived about 25 minutes later he found that death had taken place. He made an examination of the body and found that the face was natural, but the lips were slightly blue. In his opinion death was due to syncope caused by fatty degeneration of the heart. The jury returned a verdict accord- ingly, and the coroner in referring to the extreme suddenness of the death, added a few words of kindly sympathy with the husband and family in their bereavement.
I CRAFTSMEN AND MINERS. I I PROPOSED AMALGAMATION I The quarterly meeting of the South Whales Association o.f Colliery Engine- men, Stokers and Craftsmen was held at Cardiff, when, in the absence of Mr. T. S. Davies, the chair was occu- pied by Mr. W. J. Wathen, Blaenavon. Mr. AV. Hopkins (the secretary), Mr. W. Davies and Mr. W. Woosnam (the agents), and Mr. W. Bosley (treasurer), were also present. The financial statement was submit- ted and adopted, and the auditors' re- port was accepted. I AMALGAMATION. I The result of the ballot on the ques- I tion of the amalgamation with the South Wales Miners' Federation shewed For amalgamation 4,082 Against 2,006 m Majority for 2,076 This majority, however, fell short of the three-fourths majority required to dissolve the association, and therefore it had been found necessary to secure a legal opinion, with the result that a resolution was carried to alter Rule 36 so as to read as follows:— A general dissolution of the asso- ciation shall take place only when desired by two-thirds of the members ascertained by ballot. This resolution was carried, together with another urging the executive council and the officers to press forward to a final conclusion the arrangement to join the South Wales Miners' Feder- ation, and pledging the meeting to sup- port the Council and the officers in any action that may be taken. The conference decided to grant a further sum of £ 25 towards the relief of the distress of the workers in the Dublin dispute, and a resolution was carried protesting against the action of the authorities in South Africa in "arresting Trade Union leaders and others." ——————————————.
THE NEW MINERS ASSOCIA TION. NEATH DISTRICT'S FIRST MEETING I As already announced in our columns the miners of the Neath and Vale of Neath Districts and Skewen have de- cided to break away from the Western District of Miners' Federation, to which they were allied, and to form a new district of their own, to be called the "Neath District." The first meeting of this new district was held on Satur- day at the Waterloo Hotel, Neath, when delegates from 14 collieries in the district representing over 4,000 miners attended. Mr. John Jones, Resolven, presided, and explained the causes which had necessitated the formation of a Neath district. It was decided that the officials, who had been temporarily appointed to carry out the work of the district, should remain in office until the district was established on a proper basis. Mr. T. W. Davies was appointed treasurer, and he was instructed to forward all the subscriptions, levies, etc., to the general treasurer of the South Wales Federation. The question of establish- ing rules and standing orders was dis- cussed, and a committee was appoint- ed to carry out this work and report to the next meeting.

HOW TO CURE A COLD ADVICE TO THOSE WITH WEAK LUNGS AND CHEST The usuaJ symptom of the commence- ment of a. "cold" which rnmy be a source of great aoonTi\Wenee and pa?L for weeks, ia a running at the nose. ThM Nets up inflammatian of the raucous mem- branes or the lining of the throat and nose and inflammation of the bronchial tukea follows, and the result is that the patient is probably laid up for days, sometimes weeks. Life is made miser- able, and the patient knows no rest un tfl he or she has got rid of the oom- plaint. Friends all devise different remedies and in a very short time, un- less the so-called "cures" have succeeded in making the patient ten times worse than before, the neglect of applying the proper remedy at the proper time is re- gretted. Amongst the so-called remedies which flood the market the only really efficient remedy is Bee's Balsam. This marvellous compound is an exceptionally cure and safe preparation and is the re- sult of many years' careful study. In asthma., bronchitis, and all affections of the chest and lungs there is nothing more efficacious than Bee's Balsaam. It may be obtained from Mr J. Harris (London Major Pharmacist), Pharmaceutical, AgriculturaJ and Dis- pensing Chemist, and from Mr T. Harris, M.P.S., Seven Sisters. Sold by all Chemists at I.s.1.1d. per bottle.
