ABERCRAVE NOTES LOCAL CARPENTER'S TROUBLE. At the Neath County Court on Tues- day before the Registrar (Mr. Charles), Henry Frank Ives, of Llwyn Neuadd, Abercrave, a carpenter in the employ of Mr. Rhys Jones, contractor, Post Office, and formerly in business at Blaengwynfi, underwent his public ex- amination in bankruptcy. It was stated that his liabilities totalled £ 101 16s. lid and there was a deficiency. Debtor gave as the cause of his failure, bad trade whilst in business for himself at Blaen- gwynfi, and a subsequent breakdown in health. There were 33 unsecured creditors for the full amount of the deficiency. Ives said that a serious ill- ness mentally afflicted him, and lie had to leave matters to his wife at critical times. The examination was closed. TRESPASSING ON THE RAILWAY. The terrible fatality on the Neath and Brecon Railway Co.'s per- manent way below Abercrave Station on Saturday, in which a workman at the Gwaunclawdd Colliery, Joseph Rivers lost his life, is calculated to put an effective chock on the general prac- tice now in use of trespassing along the line by workmen, as the company intend to keep a much stronger look- out for offenders. It was stated at the inquest at Ystradgynlais on Tuesday that for a first offence the trespasser can only be warned, but for a repeti- tion he can be summoned and convict- I ed. I ABERCRAVE COLLIERY "CHECK." Although many conflicting reports are being circulated regarding the result of the triennial election of a checkweigher for the Abercrave Collieries, we under- stand that from the final ballot Mr. John G. Morgan has obtained the post by a majority of three over the present holder, Mr. Rhys Lewis, Colbren. There is some talk of a re-ballot being taken in case of which we understand that a good many of the workmen are desirous of Councillor T. Prosser Jones, Seven Sisters, being invited to stand as a candidate. REV. D. JEREMY JONES AT I NEUADD. I Good congregations assembled at the Neuadd Chapel on Sunday when ser- mons were delivered by the Rev. D. Jeremy Jones, of Cwmllynfell, a young preacher of much ability and consider- able promise. His sermons were enjoyed by good congregations. BAPTISMAL SERVICE. A large congregation assembled at Noddfa Baptist Church on Sunday morning when a bal)tismal service was conducted by the pastor (Rev. C. J. Pipe). Mr. Pipe preached an interesting sermon on the ceremony of baptism, and afterwards immersed three new members—two young ladies and one young man. A GRATIFYING RECOVERY. I We are glad to be able to announce that Mr. George Dewing, a surface worker who was very seriously injured at the International Colliery about six weeks ago*, and had to be removed in a critical condition to the Swansea Hos- pital, is now progressing very favour- ably. At first his recovery was almost despaired of, but one of his legs was amputated, and Mr. Dewing has since continued to make progress. He has been taken to the Swansea Convales- cent Home this week. HOCKEY NOTES. I The local mixed team visited Dyffryn (Neath) on Saturday last, and after a very good game carried off the laurels of victory by three goals to one. To- morrow (Saturday) Abercrave ladies have an engagement with Clydach at Clydach. G.F.S. CONCERT. The entertainment promoted this week end by the local members of the Girls' Friendly Society promises to be highly successful. The first portion of the programme is to be taken up with a farce and the second by the operet- ta "Zurika., the Gipsy Maid." We shall to "Zurika, the Gipsy Maid." We shall be able to give full particulars next week. LOCAL WEDDING. A marriage was solemnized at the Pontardawe Registry Office on Wednes- day morning, the contracting parties being Miss Hannah Morgan, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. R. Morgan, Gwyn Arms, Craig-y-Nos, and Mr. Morgan Richard Williams, of Ynis- wen, gamekeeper for the Messrs Mor- gan, Abercrave. Mr. Morgan R. Mor- gan acted as best man and also gave the bride away, and Miss Annie Morgan (sister) was bridesmaid. The newly- married couple, who made the journey by taxi, afterwards went to Cardiff for the honeymoon. They will reside at Penybont. CARMEL SERVICES. The Rev. Morris Morgan, of Swansea, occupied the pulpit at Carmel Chapel on Sunday, and preached effective ser- mons to good congregations. After the evening service the rev. gentleman candueted a special temperance meet- ing, which was well attended. NEW SOCIETY AT TYNYCOED. A new Mutual Improvement Society has recently been formed in connec- tion with Tynycoed Chapel, with the Rev. L. Lewis (Penybont) as president, and Mr. John Jones as secretary, and meetings are to be held every Friday evenin g until the end of the session. The first meeting took place on Friday evening last, when the Rev. L. Jones presided over a good attendance, and papers were read by Master Johnny Hughes on "John Ceiriog Hughea," the North Walian poet, and by Mr. Idris Lewis on "The influence of the church on the present age." A highly interesting discussion foHowed and a pleasant evening was spent. MR. D. R. MORGAN AND THE COUNCIL. TI 1 I u nas Deen noticed that Mr. D. R. Morgan's name did not figure amongst those present at the J?t meeting of the Y? strad?y?a.is Council. Mr. Morgan found it impossible to leave work that day, but we understand it is the first meeting he has missed since his elec- tion in 1907-an excellent record. XIGHT SCHOOL SOCIAL. Members attending the night school held at the Abercrave Schools are or- ganising a social to be held on Thurs- day evening next. Extensive prepara- tions are being made for the event, which promises to be very successful. A NOTABLE EVENT. Congratulations are tendered to the Rev. li. Beynon, B.A., pastor of Car- mel, and Mrs. Beynon, to whom a baby girl was born en Monday. Both mother and child are progressing splendidly. LLWYDDIAN MYFYRIWR.
