BRYNAMMAN NOTES. I YNYS AMMAN COLLIERY I A restart was made here the end of last week. Mr Jeffries, formerly of Tir- bach, Ystalyfera, has been appointed manager, in succession to Mr Richard Wilhams. Llandilo road, the resigning manager. Active preparations for a ooncert on St. David's Day are being made at the local schools. The Moriah children are also similarly engaged, a special social tea ajid coxice-it being announced for St. David's Day's celebration, to be held on Monday. PUBLIC. HALL INNOVATIONS I After nine years continual daily service the billiard table affixed at the Public Hall is to bel renovated. Throughout the years, this table has held and maintained the position of easy first favourite, with the billiard playing public;, and to enable it to further con- tinue to do so, the present overhauling hits been decided: upon. It is remarkable, especially in view of the table's maintained reputation, that only twice has the cloth been renewed during the ill iic, years. This says a lot for the makers, Messrs. Burroughs and Watts, but to a grecttr extent does the credit reflect oil the caretaker, for the assiduous attention and vigilant care he has bestowed upon it. At the Cinema, a cha.nge in the manage- ment has taken place during the week. During his stay in Brynamman, Mr Ilex, the out-going manager, has gained the re- spect of all. With the new ma.na.ger, we are promised that the Pala-ce is to enter on a new lease of life. CWMLLYNFELL EISTEDDFOD ? I At Cwmllyntell Eisteddfod on Saturday of last week, our budding young elocu- tionist, Miss Gweimie Mary Thomas, Goleufryn, was again successful. Thcugh only five yea,rs of age, she has won several prizes, and recently captured the silver rnedal out of 10 competitors at Cwmgorse for a recitation confined to children under 10 years. I CWMLLYNFELL FOOTBALL I The game between iJrynamman ana Cwmllynfell has at last been played. Cwmllynfell won by 1 try to nil. Saturday's game could nob be taken as any criterion of the merits of the teams, as Esgyrn Park was on that day a vast bog with players and touch judges up to their ankles in mud. Mr T. Elliot, W.R. U., Swansea, acted as referee. The game was well fought under the conditions, but had Cwmllynfell kept their original fixture, when Brynamman were at full strength, they might very well hjive retired a beaten team. I ACCIDENT I I .L I A nasty accident occuirea oji i-ne G.W.R. line on Tuesday evening. A young lad named George Overland, hail- ing from London, and engaged at the Glynbeudy Tin works, was pioceeding to work along the line about 5 o'clock in the a fternoon. When on the bridge crossing the Amman, by Brynbach, a luggage train caught him up, and in endeavouring to get clear of the bridge the unfortunate lad was caught under the engine. One leg was practically severed, and the other badly torn. After being attended to by Dr. J. W. Lewis, he was taken in the doctor's motor to Swansea. Hospitfcl, where he now lies in a critical condition, both limbs having been amputated. I. FUNERAL r'I 1.

Jones, Ebenezer officiakd It is but a couple of months since Mr and Mrs. Jones lost another child. Much sympathy is felt with them in their be- reavement. GYMNASIUM -DISPLAY At the Vestry Hall last work, the St. Catherine's Gymnasium Club met the Sketty Club in a friendly exhibition. The Brynamman contingent being mostly re- cruits of barely a year's standing, did re- markably well, especially in the first few exercisers. Sketty, however, finally raai ,out victors by 11 points. Ex-Sergt. G. Henley acted as judge, and proved an adept. A miscellaneous concert concluded a night's splendid en- tertainment. Miss S. A. Rees acccm- panied, and Mr Williams, Gem, and Mr D. J. Davies, Goleufryn, contributed solos. an d Home The local Ambulance and Home Nursing Classes held at the Upper Schools are now in full swing, and w-11 appreciated. I HERMON CONCERT L1]_.
