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.

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.
