PIPE OF PEACE AT NEY- LAND. HOW LIKE YSTRADGYNLAIS. Mr. J. Hier presided at a special meeting of the Neyland Council, held to consider the tenders for scavenging for the year, and as usual the proceed- ings were quite unconventional. There were only two tenders, and for some time the Council discussed the methods of advertising until reminded by the chairman that this should have been done at the previous meeting. Then a question arose as to whether a tip was available, and the surveyor was sent to interview the owner. Mean- while the chairman remarked, "The duty is off tobacco," and Councillors brought out their pipes, although the spittoons requisitioned recently by the medical officer have not been provided. The surveyor returned, and Council- lors laid their pipes on the table before them, and an air of gravity now settled upon them. Soon, however, another question arose with regard to another of the gentlemen tendering. It was de- cided to send the surveyor on another pilgrimage, and this time Councillor William Harris was asked to go with him. The Chairman prepared to light up again, but as he reached the door Mr. Evans remarked, "Whisky is 4d. a glass, and port wine is 3d. This will cost Is. 2d." When the reporters left the meeting had lasted nearly two hours. No pro- gress had been made, but almost hid- den in a cloud of smoke the Council calmly awaited the return of the sur- veyor.
