It WM re- ported that there had been a settlement at Messrs..James and Son's establish- ment at Swanr-ea, and that it had been agreed to aholit'n the system, and that the asHFtnnts should receive 12s.6d. a week in lit:a of board ai:d lodgings. t A meeting of the Gorseinon Cymmro darion Society was held last Thursday. Mr W. Hughes, Dolan, presided, when the Rev. D. M. Davies, Waunarlwydd, delivered a lecture on "Ben BOWell." The lecturer pointed out that Ben Bowen stood alone as a poet and original thinker and his fine character ought to be an inspiration to the young men of to-day. The death occurred on Monday of Mrs. William Morris, widow of the great Socialist, poet, and craftsman.. Mrs. Morris (Miss Jane Burden) was born in Oxford in 1840, and lived there until her marriage. Morris first met her as a girl, and he was eo struck by her appearance that he asked her to sit for him. Since her husband's death in 1896 Mrs. Morris lived chiefly at Kelmscott Manor Houso.
