CWMLLYNFELL 1 FOOTBALL DISAPPOINTMENTS I Both local iootball teams suffered dis- appointment n Sa.turd<1Y, the teams which they had arranged to meet having reomtl y dizbanded. The first eleven should have entertained Stepney in a League fixture. To accommodate this team they changed tha venue of the first game of the season, consenting to play on the Stepney Ground instead of at Cwmllynfell, and now when the return P",9 should have b-eon P'?'? on the local field, the CwmnvnfeIIites ?e de- prived of the gate receipts, which would in the ordinary course, have accrued to their exchequer. The Seconds had an engagement with Gendros Seconds Swansea, and in this case also the local players had already visited the team on their own ground. TC-MORROW'S GAME lo-morrow (Saturday), is likely to prove a real local Derby day, CwTvn- fell playing Brynamma.n on ohe iatter's ground in a friendly match. This should have been played on January 3<si, but through the inability of the Brynamman ites to make all the necessary arrange- ments, it had to be postponed. Great interest is now being taken in the game, and the fortunes of the rival teams forms one of the chief subjects of conversation locally. The Seconds have no match, -Mid therefore the players will no doubt join the number of local spectators who ,v '1 journey to Brynamman to witness th. Firsts' game. "THREE SACRED SPOTS IN WALES." In connection'with the Cwmllynfell Chapel Literary Society, a delightful evening was spent in the Vestry last Wed- nesday, ^when papers on the subject "Some Sacred Spots in Wales" were read by lady members, and were of a very interesting and illuminating character. The Rev. D. Jeremy Jones presided over a large at- tendance, and the papers were as follows Miss Jane Helena Jones on "Y Groes- wen" (near Caerphilly, where there is a graveyard containing the remains of many eminent Welshmen) Miss Catherine A. Jones, on Llinfa-ehes (where the first Welsh Nonconformist, Church was founded after 1662) and Miss Ma-rv Evans, on "Neuaddlwvd" (in Cardiganshire, where many \Ve!sh missionaries were trained). The papers were thoroughly enjoyed, and were followed by an interesting discus- sion. CWMLLYNFELL CHAPEL The pastor of the Independent Church (the Rev. D. Jeremy Jones), was preach- ing at Aberc.rava on Sunday, and his place at the local chapel was taken by Mr J. A. Davies, of Maesteg, a student at the Brecon Memorial College, who has several relati ves in the village. Mr Da.vies proved himself an excellent preachor, and his services were much ap- preciated. LOCAL BILLIARD LICENSE As we forecasted a few weeks ago, Mr Isaac T. Mathias, Gwilym Ro:d, applied for licence for a billiard room at the Pontardawe Licencing Sessions on Friday last. Ho was represented by Mr Morgan Davies, solicitor. The police did not ap- prove of the license being granted point- in out that th£.ro, were already two billiard rooms in the village, but the Bench said they were disposed to grant the application, and they would defer the matter for a month. BLACK MOUNTAIN PROGRESS A rumous lias been circulated in the daily prt-sg during the week to the effect tha.t a scheme of co-partnership was to be established in connection with the re- opening of the Black Mountain Colliery, but stated that no definite information could -be obtained in regard to the matter. It was understood that each man work- ing at the mine would be asked to take a £ 10 share in the colliery, the payment of such shares to be deducted from wages in weekly instalments of a few shillings each. After exhaustive inquiries, we are enabled to give an explanation of the matter. This scheme was arranged, and had practically been accepted by a good many of the prospective workers, i.9 v able the old company to re-open the pit. Since then, however, the property of the old company was acquired by the new London owners, and the scheme thus fell through, not now being necessary. About fifty or sixty men are now at work in the colliery, and by the end of this week it is expected that mining will have com- menced. NEW COMPOSITION j We are informed that two prominent local composers are at present engaged on the production cf a new operetta., which will shortly be published, and is calcula- ted to meet with considerable success. The authors are Mr Wm. Levi. and Cyn- wal. the bard, and their work is being anticipated with much interest.
