CWMLLYNFELL I I THE BLACK MOUNTAIN COLLIERY WORKING. llie information authoritatively an- nounced in this column last week re- specting the recent acquisition by a London company of the Black Moun- tain Colliery created quite a buzz of excitement in the village, and the mat- ter has undoubtedly been the chief sub- ject of general conversation ever since. This week the colliery has presented quite an industrious appearance, and it is stated that already about 30 men are working on the premises under the guidance of Mr. Morgan, who has re- cently been appointed manager. It is stated also that some coal has already been brought to the surface, but con- siderably more work on the part of the labourers is required before coal getting must be started in earnest. Possibly a few men will be engaged in the work- ings next week, but at any rate it is anticipated that a considerable number of men will be kept busy in the course of a few weeks' time. TOM EN OWEN WATER. I I At last, atter several weeks' delay, the Carmarthen County Council have commenced the work of putting down the pipes for the water supply for Towen Owen, and there is now a pros- pect of the local houses shortly receiv- ing their supply of the precious liquid from the Cefnbrynbrain reservoir. Quite a small army of workmen are en- gaged on the work, and the district has presented quite a busy appearance dur- ing the week. FOOTBALL: CUP MATCHES LOST. As indicated in last week s notes, Saturday was a highly important day for local footballers, as both first and second teams were engaged in cup matches. The firsts played Glais away in the first round of the 1st Division of the Swansea Cup Competition, the teams having previously met at Cwm- Uynfell, and the game ended in a draw. On Saturday, however, the result was even more disappointing from the local standpoint. True, Cwmllynfell had not a very strong team in the field, but they were quite equal to the home side throughout, and they ought at least to have drawn again, if not won the match. During the first half the home side played fairly well and registered one try, but in the second, the visitors were keenly on the attack practically the whole of the time, yet failing to get over, although two or three favour- able opportunities occurred. The game thus ended three points to nil in favour of Glais. The Seconds met Birchgrove at Mor- riston, and were up against a much stronger and generally superior set of players than themselves. This match was the semi-final for the Swansea Cup Competition (third division) and after a fairly interesting encounter, the local players lost by ten points to nil. Thus neither of the Cwmllynfell teams have any further interest in cup matches. I MUTUAL IMPROVEMENT SOCIETY There was a large gathering of mem- bers of the Cwmllynfell Mutual Im- provement Society at the Vestry last Wednesday evening, when the Rev. T. M. Roderick, of Cwmgorse, gave an excellent address on Human Develop- ment, urging the necessity of cultivat- ing all human faculties, physical, in- tellectual, and spiritual. The pastor (Rev. D. Jeremy Jones) presided over the audience, and the proceedings were thoroughly enjoyed. I CO-OPERATIVE PROGRESS. Members of the local Co-operative Society will be gratified to learn of the great success of the past quarter's busi- ness. The accounts have not yet been audited, but we are able to say that the sales for the past thirteen weeks show an increase of quite L600, and it is hoped that the profits will have in- creased accordingly. There is thus every prospect of an excellent dividend. Mr. Owen may well be congratulated on the excellent results of his management. CHILDREN'S FESTIVAL. In place ot the usual evening service at the Cwmllynfell Independent Chapel on Sunday, a festival took place under the auspices of the Band of Hope, the members of which organisation contri- buted to a very pleasing and well ren- dered programme of sacred songs, solos, recitals,-etc. The musical items were ac- companied by Messrs. A. W. Thomas and D. W. James. The pastor (Rev. D. J. Jones) had charge of the proceedings and there was a good congregation.
