Scrutineers for the annual election of officials and committee which takes place to-day (Friday) and to-morrow were elected, viz. Messrs. Jno. Mor- gan. Michael Parry Price, and Joshua Jones. MOTOR CAR ACCIDENT. Whilst a motor car belonging to Dr. Richards, of Abercrave, was being driven over the Ystrad Bridge on Tues- day afternoon, the six-year-old child of Mr. John Millar, mason, of How ells- buildings, ran across the road and was knocked down, and narrowly escaped serious injury, Messrs. Tom Williams, Gough-buildings and W. Williams, Sta- tien-road, picked the child up, and when Dr. Richards made an examina- ti-on he found that the little girl had only sustained sup or he Lai injury to- one of her legs. Councillor Dd. Lewis and Mr. T. Wtatkins (surveyor) have been appoint- ed to attend an annual conference of the Welsh Housing and Town Planning Association being held at Newport. THE CINEMA. The turns at the Brecon-road Cinema this week are as good as the pictures, and that sums up the enter- tainment offered as one of extraordi- nary excellence. The Swift Duo, trick and comedy cyclists, meet with enrap- tured applause from the audience, and the comedy is thoroughly enjoyed. Le Hirst, ventriloquist, with his figure Joey, in their great post-box scena, are screemingly funny. The "turn" is clean and the comedy is without the slightest trace of vulgarity. "Lured by a wo- man" and "The House of Misery" were the two star pictures shown during the' earlier portion of the week, and were very line. "Drummed out," a military drama, a picture full of human pathos, will be the "star" this Friday and Saturday evenings. Next week Messrs Edwards and Page have engaged to ap- pear the great Hodgini trio in their sensational aerial act. These artistes have been procured at great expense, and it is quite evident that the lessees are leaving no stone unturned to place before their patrons the cream of the vaudeville world. The Rev. W. H. Harris has been appointed hy the Esperanto Society examiner in the subject of Esperanto for Wales. The committee of the Horticultural Society are at present busy preparing for their annual show, and arrange- ments are now well in hand. The sec- retary this year is Mr. Howell Jones, Cwmgiedd. The death occurred on Thursday at Church-terrace, of Mrs. Margaret Powell, widow of the late Mr. Richard Powell, at the advanced age of 71. The funeral took place on Monday. De- ceased leaves one son and one daughter. A FINE PHOTO. Mr. W. Cartwright has prepared some exceHent photos of the new Bre- con-mad Cinema and Theatre, and the j background gives a very fine view of Craigynos Castle which is the subject of the drop sheet. The photos arc per- fect in every way. LLONGYFARCHIADAU I MR. T. I THOMAS. MINERS' ARMS. Pa, hryd ceir cwrdd anrhcgu I Thomas am ei waith? Fe cldylai ef gael medal o aur-neu bwti Haith.

STARTED AMID PLENTY The New York newspapers publish telagrajTis from Los Angeles reporting a mysterious and tragic discovery which has be&n made there in a smaJI apart- ment until latedy teiiainted by two sisters, Nanette and Mary War rem. It appears that about three weeks ago Mary Warren died, though under what circumstances cannot be stated, except that her death is attributed to the effects of chloroform. Nanette kept her death secret, ajid it was only when the non-appearance of the two sisters led to investigations that the death became known. Entrance wag gained to the apartment en Saturday, and Nanette, in a pitiable state of col- lapse and starvation, was found beside her dead sister's body. She refused to speak, and was later removed to an asylum, where, as she declined nourish- men.t, she has had to be forcibly fed. When the room which the two women had occupied was searched it was found to be full of valuable jewellery, and it has been .establi.shed that Nanette is worth half a million dollars.
LINKING UP Tho officials of th" National Union of Raiiwaymen have received frem the Miners; Federation of Great Britain an invitation 10 a joint conference of dele- gates rer.vef-aitirig the Federation, the National Union cf Railwaymen, a-id the Tran.-port Workers' Federation, to dis- cuss tho •extent to which joint action be- tween the thrf"" bodies is desirable or at- tainable in future disputes concerning their respective grades of workers or the whole Labour movement. The matter will be discussed by the Executive of the Society a.t is meeting in March, but in the meantime. it is stated that the re- quest will be favourably entertained. Tho Transport Workers have already as- sented, and the proposed conference will be convened as early as possible in March. >»♦♦♦
I Mr William Abraham, M.P. (Mabon), the veteran Labour leader and eist-edd- fodwr, remains in residence at Llantwit Major. Although by no. means well, his condition is improved, and he is hopeful of complete recovery. Pedestrians in Central Park, New York's Hyde Park, were startled to see a woman hurl herself from the twelfth storev of a huge block of flats overlook- ing the park. The woman, who was killed instantly, was a well-known society woman.
CWMLLYNFELL NOTES I FOOTBALL DISAPPOINTMENTS I Local football last week-end proved a disastrous affair. The First team were due to meet Bryn;:mman on the latter ground, but on Friday evening it was found practically impossible to raise a tsam, several players suffering from the cffects cf the previous Saturday's match, whilst the Seconds had a league match. ".Iifl could -not spare any d their number. In view of these facts, it was decided to wire Brynainman stating that the fi ic-ndly match would be played later The Seconds entertained Birchgrove in a league match, but the latter tea n i im- plicated matters by arriving exceedingly late, and only about 25 minutes' play was possible at the end of which the visitors were leading by one trv to nil. This on- counter will have to replayed. TO-MORROWS MATCHES threat- interest is being evinced in the two matches to be played to-morrow (Saturday). The First team have to re- play their Cup match with Glais, which, when played en the local ground, ended in a draw by three points each. The fact that. to-morrow, the game takes place on Uk Glais ground, and that there is con- siderable doubt as to the local team having a strong side, in the field, is net very hopeful for Cwmllynfcn, but it may be taken for granted that the local lads will do their utmost to stride ink) t fir; scccnd round cf the competition. The Seconds play Birchgrove at Morris- ton in the semi-final ef tli,, third division of the Swa.nsea Cup competition, and this also will be particularly interesting, al- though Cwmilynfell will have to s how improved plav if tluv mean to r :a.:h the final. MARRIAGE MORGAN—GRIFFITHS I An interesting marriage, the from this district to be celebrated in th; spac- ious new registry office. at Pontar-lawe, t=k place en Thursday last, the contrac- ting parties being Mr Johii. s n of the late Mr Daniel Ab igail, of 1 y- gwyn, Cwmilynfell, and of Ilrs. Morgan, Bryn road, and Miss Hannah Griffiths, daughter of Mr David Griffiths, faimer, Pistyll Gwrhyd. The ceremony was of a quiet character, and only a friends of the two parties were present, these in- cuding Mr Ben Jones (nephew of the bridegroom), Mr and Mrs. Harold Rees (sister and brother-in-law of the bride- groom), and Mr David Griffiths, brother of the bride. We understand that the happy couple intend to make their home in Cwmilynfell. I A FINE CONCERT I There was a faIrly goed attendance at tho Cwmilynfell Chapel on Saturday evening, particularly having regard to the inclement weather, when a concert was triven bv the Swansea Lyric Con- cert Party. A very large number of tickets had been sold, however, and it is confidently expected that the object of the function, that cf helping to liquidate the chapel debt, will benefit, considerably as a, result. The RCIV. D. Jeremy Jones presided, and a very fine programme, glees, songs, duetts, quartettes and in- strumental selections was contributed to by the members of the Swansea Lyric Concert Party, conducted by Prof. Dyfed Lewys, R.A.M., and accompanied by Mr Dalziel H. Lewys. Several items received enthusiastic encores, the efforts of Miss May Roberts (soprano), and Miss Ceridwen jenes (violinist), being pa,r- ticularly good. Altogether, the proceed- ings were thoroughly enjoyed. THE MUTUAL IMPROVEMENT ￼ SOCIETY 1. ?"I Under the auspices ot tne owmiiymeii Chapel Mutual Improvement Society, a successful meeting took place on Wed- nesday last. The pastor (Rev. D. Jeremy Jones), presided over a good attendance, and also introduced a highly 1 interesting discussion on the subject of "Good and Evil," in which a large number took part. At the morning service at chapel, on Sunday, Mr Jones preached a forceful sermon on the same subject, taking his text from Romans 12 Chapter, 8 verse. RECOVERY FROM ILLNESS It is pleasing to learn, that Mr David Jones (Penhow), who now lives with his daughter, Mrs. Walters, in Gwilym road, is recovering from his recent ser- ious illness. Mr Jones was taken very ill over a fortnight ago, and last week was in a very dangerous condition, but an improvement took place during the week-end, and this has been maintained. His many friends will he glad to sec him out again in the noar future. HENLLYS COLLIERY OFFICIAL I INFORMATION At last the veil of uncertainty sur- rounding the Black Mountain Colliery has been lifted. It was officially announced on Wednesday that the col- liery is to be taken over by a London company. For several weeks past we have indicated that important develop- ments were anticipated, but apparently there was a stumbling block in the negotiations, as last week the property was advertised for sale by auction, but on Thursday the announcement was withdrawn, and the property will be taken over immediately by Messrs. H. Russell Eva.ns, a.nd A. E. Gardner, of London. work to be taken over within the next few weeks. Up to the time of th. closing of the colliery last July, about 150 men were employed at the pit, and the output at that time was about 150 tons per day, but it is stated that im. portant developments a.re being contem- plated, which will greatly increase the number cf workman.

CORRESPONDENCE. I DRYM MOUNTAIN OWNERSHIP. I To the Editor. "LlaisJ Llafur." I Sir.—It is high time that a. thorough investigation be made into the tme ownership of the Drym Mountain. The Commoners, or brinkers, no doubt, have a perfect right to the grazing of this common land during their tenancy of a farm adjoining the mountain. Councillor S. J. Thomas in your last issue asks "Who are these people?" A number of the so-called commoners of the Drym Mountain are people who lived at one time in a farm adjoining the mountain, and are now occupying small cottages. Others, occupying farms a considerable distance away from the mountain, not only exercise the right to the grazing, but the right to contract with private people for portions of the land, and re- ceive money for it. Councillor David Lewis who claims the right of c, commoner, although not ad- joining the mountain, is said to have stated that the rent of the Half-way public house was tLt, one time paid to the Rector of Ystradgynlais. Having had seme cause to enquire into this matter, I concur with Councillor S. J. Thomas, that this statement is incorrect. I may further add regarding a. statement said to have been ma.de by Councillor David Lewis that the Commoners still receive the rent from the Half-way House, that it is also incorrect. It would be interesting to know the position of the Drym Commoners. Do they ckim to be the owners of the land ? Or do they act as trustees for the poor of Ystradgynlais? Or in some other capacity for any private* family? What- ever position they hold, it seems that they have, or assume, the power to grant permission to erect cottages, and make contracts for pieces of land. Do they receive the ground rent of the DuJais Colliery cottages in money or in beer? It is said that the ground rent of the "Half-way" in the "old days" was paid by tho distribution of 50 pints of beer. This custom died out when tho custom of five pints for a shilling ceased. This luxury is not bestowed at the pre- sent day in beer nor in money, although a. good bid was made for it recently by ore of the leading men of the common- ers, by suggesting that the Half-way r-hould pay ten shillings per annum, and that the money would not be taken out of the house. The Commoners, whoever they may be, are fully convinced bv this, that the "Half-way" has been allowed to grow too old under the very shady governm-ent of the Commoners. The "Half-way Houge" was looked upon as freehold property a hundred years ago, and willed as such by Richard Richards. It was again bequeathed as such in a will made by Wm. Lewis, Wil- liams in the year 1S77. The authenticity of the later will was questioned in the year 1909, and was declared to be in- valid. This action was heard in- the High Court of Justice, before Mr Jus- tice Neville. It was commenced in the year 1909, and ended on the 14th of February, 1911. Below I give an ex- tract or two from the order, and the titles procured in the High Court of Jus- tice, which will suffice to show that the present occupier and the. other plaintiffs have established their right, and a title of the freehold property known as the "Half-way House." Extracts from the order of the Court "Upon reading the pleadings and two office copy wills of Richard Richards and probate of the will of Mr Wm. Lewis Williams granted on the 24th day of April, 1877, to Elizabeth Williams. And upon hearing the evidence of the persons named in the schedule hereto upon their examination taken orally before the Court at the trial, etc. "And upon heaving what was alleged by Council for plaintiffs and for the de- fendant this court doth declare that the plantiffs have established their title to the freehold public house and heredita- ments known as the Half-way House, etc. "And it ia ordered that the defendant do pay to the plaintiffs an occupation rent in receipt of the said premises from the 23rd of November, 1909, to the date of this order. Such occupation rent to be fixed by the Master in Chambers, etc. "And it is also ordered that the de- fendant do pay to the plaintiffs their costs of this action to be taxed by the taxing master, etc. No sane person after procuring his titles in the High Court of Justice would disregard them, by paying rent for his own property to the Drym Commoners.

HOW TO CURE A COLD ADVICE TO THOSE WITH WEAK LUNGS AND CHEST Tha usual symptom of the commence- ment of a "cold" which may be a source of great in con T&aierLoe and pain for weeks, is a running at the nose. Thia sets up inflammation of the mucous mem- branes or the lining of the throat and nose and inflamnmtion of the brociehial tubes 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 üt he or she has got rid of the com- pla.i.nt. Friends all devise different remedies and in a very short timo, 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 remed y 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, Agricultural and Dis- pensing Chemist, and from Mr T. Harris, M.P.S., Seven Sisters. Sold by all Chemists at ls.1-id. per bottle.
