» — BRYNAMMAN NOTES. CAUSE AND EFFECT. The gale of lao-t week-end has played havoc with the wires conducting our elec- tric supply. Different portions of the village have been in darkness, and the local electricions have had an exception- ally busy week, making good the damage. IMPROVED SCHOOL CONDITIONS Mencetorth school conditions in Car- marthenshire will more nearly approach those in other counties. We congratulate the Education Committee on the decided change for the better in its attitude to- wards education, as in revealed by its de- cisions of Thursday last. At that meet- ing, the two most vital factors for suc- cess in the schools, namely the provision of suitable buildings, and the more liber- al remuneration of the teaching staffs, re- ceived attention, and were put upon a more satisfactory basis. By the increases, of JB15 in the maxi- mum, and £ 2 10&. Od. in the. annual in- crements in the teachers' salary scale, the education of the county generally wid be enormously benefitted. Not only will the teaching staff be more constant, and subject to fewer changes of personnel, but the increased salaries will prove a strong and much needed induoeinent to attract the nation's best talent to the service of tiM schools. In this respect the teachers a.e the leaders of democracy," and it is vital that such work should be in good hands. The other matter of improved school buildings affects Brynamnian more in- timately, and the news, that a new Infant School is to be erected will be received with joy. The Committee has decided to purchase for the sum of 1;375, the^site of the cot- tages situate oppcsite the schools in Cwm- garw road. The site is said to comprise somewhere about one-third of an acre. The cottages will have to be demolished and then the work will be pushed forward without delay. MISSIONARIES AT MORIAII Quite a. boom in missionary cards has resulted from the visit of foreign mission- aries, from the Methodist Mission fields, who conducted the services at Moriah on Sunday. The heathens in foreign parts at least, may look forward to gOûd times. LOCAL COLLIERIES The damage to the standards at the Rhosaniniaxi Colliery, reported last wk, has b een made good. The big winding sheave, which did service in lhc sinking operations at the East Pit, and was thus thoroughly tested, has been affixed, m place of the broken one. A restart was made on Wednesday. The colliery, which employs barely a hundred men, has re>- cently been turning out' some 160 ions a day. YNYS AMMAN STOPPAGE I Since Monday the colliery nas oeeii idle, and a start is not expected this week. SMART LOCAL WEDDING. St. Catherine Church was the scene of a smart wedding on Thursday morning of last week. The bride was Miss Violet Mary Hcrton, of Tegfryn terrace, and the bridegroom Mr Fred Meyers, of Lon- don. The Vicar of St. Catherine's, the Rev. Jeaikin Davies officiated. The bride was attired in a smart cream eioline em- pire gown, trimmed with satin, with white kid shoes. She carried a lovely bouquet of white lilies and maiden-hair fern. A bridal veil and a garland of selected orange blossoms, completed a very pretty picture-. Miss Bronys Thomas, Station Road, and Miss Jane Williams "Pia," music pupils of the bride, attired in white silk em- pire gowns with shoes to match, attended as bridesmaids. The bride was given away by her uncle, Mr Grant. After the oei-emony a reception, attended by numerous friends i of the happy couple, was held at the bride's resideam-at Lower Brynanunan.
