CWMTWRCH 1 AND GWYS NOTES THE WATER SUPPLY. After the ordinary business at Pont- ardawe Council on Thursday last, a long discussion ensued on the question of making a final attempt to settle the' dispute between the representatives of the Pontardawe and Ystradgynlais Councils regarding the water supply for Cwmtwrch district, and it was ulti- mately decided that a sub-committee consisting of Councillors Samuel J. Thomas, Lewis Thomas, and D. R. Morgan (Ystradgynlais), Alex. Evans, H. J. Powell, and J. G. Harris (Pont- ardawe), together with the clerks, sur- veyors, and collectors of the two Coun- cils, should be appointed to meet at I Pontardawe next Thursday. Failing the arrival of a settlement by the commit- tee, the matter should be referred to an independent arbitrator. I DEPARTURE OF MR. TORRANCE. I Mr. J. J. Torrance, manager of the I Blaencwm Colliery, left this locality on Monday to take up his new duties at Machen. The news of Mr. Torrance's removal has occasioned very genuine regret in the district. By his generous and kindly disposition to the inhabi- tants as well as to the workmen, he has won the respect of all who knew him, and many expressions of hope for his future success have been made. MARRIAGE: JAMES-REES. The marriage took place at the Regis- try Office, Pontardawe, on Saturday last, of Mr. Wm. James, second son of Mr. and Mrs. J. James, Cwmtwrch, and Miss Carrie Rees, daughter of the late Mr. Morgan Rees, and Mrs. Rees, Cambrian-place, Cwmtwrch. They were accompanied by several friends, land after the ceremony a family ga- thering took place at the bride's home. Mr. and Mrs. James, who are well- known in the district, have been the recipients of many presents.

NON UNIONIST MINERS. I I MR. C. B.'STANTON CALLS FOR I [ STRONGER ACTION. I The monthly meeting of the Aberdare District of Miners was held on Friday, Mr Idwa-l Thomas presiding. Several matters were reported from the Tower Collieries, Hirwain. It was complained that the management refused to stop re- lief money for Senghenydd according to an agreed arrangement at Cardiff, that they refused to meet the checkweighers upon deputations, and, further, to permit minimum wage agents to inspect work- ing places in dispute. Dealing with the question of "show cards," Mr C. B. Stanton (agent) strong- ly condemned the present system of sec- tional notices and stoppages. He said that things would never be well until general simultaneous action was taken throughout the coalfield, especially having regard to the attitude of the owners in this matter. If they failed, as they had failed, to recognise their interdependence on and honest obligations' to the Miners' Federation then more forcible methods must be adopted. The district agreed to sellld on to Car- diff a resolution backing up the agent's opinion on this matter. I INVESTMENTS. I Mr Stanton introduced a new sehenn for investing district moneys. The scheme was claimed to be one of the most far- reaching and interesting yet submitted for the consideration of the miners in the coalfield. Consideration of the matter was deferred. 1. I I

HOW TO CURE A COLD I ADVICE TO THOSE WITH WEAK LUNGS AND CHEST The usual symptom of the commence- ment of a "cold" which may be a source of great inconvenience and pain for weeks, is a running at the nose. This sets up inflammation of the mncous mem- branes or the lining of the throat and nose and inflammation of the bronchial tubes follows, and the result is that the patient is probably laid up for days, sometimes weeks. Life is made miser- able, and the patient knows no rest un til he or she has got rid of the com- plaint. Friends all devise different remedies and in a very short time, un- less the so-called "cures" have succeeded in making the patient ten times worse than before, the neglect of applying the proper remedy at the proper time is re gretted. Amongst the so-called remedies which flood the market the only really efficient remedy is Bee's Balsam. This marvellous compound is an exceptionally cure and safe preparation and is the re- sult of many years' careful study. In asthma, bronchitis, and all affections of the chest and lungs there is nothing more efficacious than Bee's Balsaam. It may be obtained from Mr J. Harris (London Major Pharmacist), Pharmaceutical, Agricultural and Dis- pensing Chemist, and from Mr T. Harris, M.P. S., Seven Sisters. Sold by all Chemists at Is.Ild. per bottle.

YSTRADGYNLAIS I NOTES. I —«—— t SCHOOLBOY FOOTBALL .1 Cynlais School Association team visted Ournos on Monday, and played the re- turn match which ended in a draw of five goals each. The previous game resulted in a win for Cynlais by 5-1 on their own ground, and they were confident of suc- cess on the Gurnos Ground. The game was fast, full of incident, and very in- teresting, and was contested with good feeling, and in a true sportsmanlike manner. Mention must be made of Lewis Watkins (capt.), W. Taylor, Levi M. Lewis, Handel Walters, W. Squires and R. Jones for Cynlais, and E. C. Wil- liams (capt.), Idris Collins, Geo. Davies, Evan T. Phillips, M. Rees, John Owen and Aubrey Moore for Gurnos. They played well a.nd showed promise of be- coming good exponents of thet game. I.L.P.'s PROTEST AGAINST BOTHA_I ISM tI tI. tI j. lit .L f' At the weekly branch meeting ot tne I.L.P. held on Friday. the action of the Parliamentary Labour Party in moving an Amendment to the Address in respect of the South African deportations, and the action of General Botha was unanimously endorsed. amongst those who supported Botha's actions was Mr Sidney Robin- son, the sitting member for Breconshire, And after a lengthy discussion, the follow- resolution was pa&sed "That this branch of the I. L. P. pro- tests most emphatically against the action of Botha's Administration in proclaiming martial law, and in deport- ing the nine Trade Union leaders. It also deplores the fact that the Liberal Government refused to accept the Lab- our Party's Amendment to the King's Address; further it regrets that Mr Robinson, M.P., voted against the amendment, thus showing himself to be a believer in the suppression of peace- ful Trade Union action by armed force. It is probable that, presently, the M.P. for Breconshire will awaken to the fact that he does not represent those who Yoted for him at the last election. LECTURE AT SARDIS. & under the auspices of the Sardis Mutual Improvement Society, a lecture was given a.t the Sardis Vestry on Mon- day evening by the Rev. D. G. Williams, of St. Clws, near Carmarthen, the sub- ject of the lecture being "The Four fared man." The Rev. R. M. Rees pre- sided over a crowded vestry. DIAMOND COLLIERY DEVELOP- MENTS RaDid developments are taking place at the D'amond Colliery, and employment is 'now found for between 200 and 250 em- ployees. The output has. increased con- siderably, and there are prospects that the undertaking will soon be one of the most important in the district. At pre- sel, ttile output is over 200 tons ner day, and there is a good market for the coal. HOT TIMES IN THE OLD STREET ihe peace of the district was jeopardised in consequence of the meeting of the mem- bers of the Ystradgynlais and District Bull Club, which took nlace at the Peny- 0 bont Inn, on Saturday evening, and it was a blessing that Mr Thos. Jones, of Worn Farm, was in the chair, otherwise the m-eting would have got quite out of control. The proceedings, from the out- set were reminiscent of Bret Harte's "S-xaety on the Stanislaus," in which, it will be remembered, "Abner Dean, of Angels, raised a paint of order, when A chunk of old red sandstone took him in the abdomen. He smiled a sickly sort of smile, and curled up on the floor. And the subsequent proceedings inter- ested him no more." Of course, the members of the Bull Club are far too advanced in their ideas to do things like that, but, in any case, however extenuating may have been the circumstances, there was a hot old time and interesting. The discussion was the liveliest ever heard at Penybont, that inn of memories where, from ancient times, the members of the Ystradgynlais Council have been wont to gather and discuss, as one literary aspirant put it, "every blessed thing under the sun and above it." However, to resume our mou- tons, as the Frenchman said. The meet- ing was caJled for the purpose of "walk- ing round" the subject of the grant from the Board of Agriculture which amounts to B15 per year in respect of the upkeep of that most puissant animal, the Bull, Providing it is approved of by the Board, t would appear that there were two -eta of opinions, one representing an irresist- able force, and the other an immovable object: the former hailing from the farms -of Palleg, and the latter from divers other places. The joint secretaries, Messrs. Lewis Price and John Evans, had the time of their lives in trying to follow the proceedings for the purpose of writing up the minutes. Nothing definite was agreed upon, and, finally, when the Chairman found it was impossible to Hiake progress, he adjourned the meeting Tintil to-morrow (Saturday) evening,— when it is expected there will more lively times. "FIREMEN'S EXAMINERS j The Breonshire Education Committee has appointed Messrs. John Jones. late -manap-,er of the PantmavVr Colliery; examiner of candidates for firemen's cer- tificates for Ystradgynlais; Mr Tom Mor- gan, manager of Brynhenllvs Collierv, for Cwmtwrch District, and Mr Peter Jones for YetAvfeTa. and District. There were six applicants. THE CINEMA The "turns" at the Brecon road Cinema this week afford residents an opportunity of witnessing the prettiest act staged to- day. Hermyn's Enchanted Fountains is all and more than can be described, and nothing so charming has previously been seen in the Swansea Valley. The large stage, with all its modern appliances is, perhaps, the only one in the district up- on which a spectacle of this character could be presented. The magnificent effects produced by the vari-coloured lights playing upon a playing fountain has filled beholders with wonder and as- tonishment. Fred Hanna, ragtime singer and dancer, gives a fine display of the art of dancing with lightning rapidity. Will Pritchard, the ideal dame comedian, has some new songs and "gags," which cause rollicking laughter. Taken on. the whole, the performance at the hall this week is one of the best that has been shown up to the present. "To shield her son," the star picture at the beginning of the week was thoroughly appreciated. This Friday and Saturday, "The Wiles of a Woman" should attract every single young man, and many maried ones who are not yet fully acquainted with them. MORNING HOOTER CONCERT 1 had a somewhat unique experience the other morning. Rising early, I walked to Yniscedwyn Station to catch the 9.1 a.m. train. Going down Wind road a hooter denoted t-hat it was 8.30 a.m. Arriving at Glanrhyd another hootsr—or pernaps the same one-iiiforrred all and sundry that it was eight-thirty a. m. Whil&t passing the old County School another hooter suggested that it was still half-past eight, and coming into Station road a hooter again buzzed out that it was thirty minutes past eight o'clock. By the time I arrived at the station, yet two more hooters had inti- mated that it was 8.30 a.m. I had ten minutes to wait for the train! Perhaps it would add to the amenities of the dis- trict if a oanferejiioe of local works managers were called for the purpose of establishing uniform time. Most of the hooters blow the same noise in the same key. St. David's Day will be celebrated in Ystradgynlais to-morrow (Saturday), when, after the members of the Cynlais Cym-mrodorion do justice to a cold colla,- tion to be laid at the Yniscedwyn School, they will proceed to Tabernacle, wheta, Professor Joseph Jones, of Brecon, will deliver a lecture. The Rev. W. D. Rowlands, of Carmar- then, a well-known pulpiteer in the Methodist denomination, preached at Tabernacle on Sunday, and also at Cwm- giedd on Monday evening. I FOOTBALL Ystalyfera visited Ystradgynlais on Saturday, and defeated the homesters by 2 goals to love, after a hot fought game on the quasrmire. To-morrow (Saturday) Garnant will be the visitors. I CHIOKS AND DUCKLINGS. Mr Edward Morgan, near Jeffreys Arms, Yatratdgynlais, has his several in- cubators at work again, and both duck- lings ajid chicks are hatched weekly. Now is the time to get chicks of good egg- producing strains which will lay before Christmas. OBITUARY The death occurred at Bryncynlais on Thursday last, of iunioe Blodwen Griffiths, daughter of ex-Councillor and Mrs. W. Griffiths. Deceased had been in indifferent health for several months, but her death came suddenly and as a shock to the numerous friends of the family. She was only 16 years of age, and death was due to consumption. The funeral took place at "i stradgynlais Churchyard, on Monday, the Rev. R. M. Rees, Sardis, officiating. There was a very large gathering of relatives and friends, including members of the family. Mr and Mrs. Matthews, Swansea; Mr and Mrs. Dav ies, Ynishir; Mr and Mrs. Henry Jones, Plasyooed; Mr and Mrs. E. Williams, O.I.C. Te;mperance Hotel. Many beautiful wreaths were received, including one from the staff and pupils of th" Maesydderwen County School, and one from. the scholars attending the Church Sunday School. A NEW LEAGUE. I Thn inaugural meeting of the Brecon road Married Men's Defence Association was held at the vacant timber vard on Monday evening, and there was a repre- sentati ve gathering. There was a. tense but quiet feeling prevailing, and the meeting was marked by great earnestness. The chief proposition before the meeting was that a Company should be formed for the purpose of acquiring "The Gables" and establishing a first-clasa lodging house, a cut between a London flat and Rowton House. Nothing definite was de- oidel. CONSERVATIVE MEETING AT I YSTRADGYNLAIS U nder the auspices of the Breconshire Conservative Association, a public meet- ing will be held at the Drill Hall, Gur- nee, on Monday evening next when speeches dealing with current political issues will be delivered by Messrs. J. Conway Lloyd (prospective Conservative candidate for Breconshire), and L. S. Amery, M.P., for South Birmingham, who has on several occasions dealt with the fiscal question in a mastarlv manner from the standpoint of Tariff Reformers, on the floor of the House of Commons. The chair will be taken at 7.30 j £ .m. by Alderman M. W. Morgan, J.P., of Aber- crave.

CWMLLYNFELL NOTES THE LOCAL "DERBY." I Great interest was evinced in the match played on Saturday between Cwmllynfell and Brynamman on the latter's ground, an interest probably not exceeded in local cup matches. As stated last week this encounter should have taken place on Jan. 31st, hut for certain reasons this was rendered im- possible, but the postponement of the game merely served to increase the enthusiasm of both players and sup- porters, and consequently there was a large attendance of spectators when the ball was set in motion on Saturday, conspicuous among the number being a strong contingent of local residents. Unfortunately neither team was able to put a really strong side into the field, there being several notable ab- sentees among the Cwmllynfellites in particular. During the first half the home side had the wind in their favour but despite the straining of every ef- fort they were unable to get over the visitors' line and the intervad arrived without the scoring account having been opened. During the second half, however, Cwmllynfell took every ad- vantage of the favourable wind, and about half way through, Evan Evans (inside half) got over smartly, his ef- fort raising hearty applause. T. Davies- put in a brave but ineffectual kick at goal. No further score being registered the match thus ended three points to nil in favour of the Llynfellites. It was an excellent game throughout, one in which questionable tactics were con- spicuous by their almost total absence, and Cwmllynfell are to be congratulat- ed on what was a really well merited victory. FUTURE MATCHES. I From now onwards and praciicaUv to.th end of the season, the local team will be engaged solely in League matches, a fact which should add in- terest to their fortunes. The next three matches will an be at home, commenc- ing to-morrow (Saturday), when the visitors will be Baycliffe (Swansea), whom the local players have not yet met this season. The Seconds have again an open date, and are likely to have others during the season, a fact due to several teams having seceded from the league. I LITERARY SOCIETY. The meeting of the Cwmllynfell Mutual Improvement Society held on Wednesday evening last at the Vestry was of a very successful and enjoyable character. The proceedings took the form of a debate on the subject, "Are small or large churches more effec- tive?" The case for the small church was advocated by Mr. T. D. Williams, and for the large church by Mr. D. M. Morgan. Both of the speakers are deacons at the local chapel, which must undoubtedly be numbered among the large ones so that interest was added to the proceedings, but eventually the majority of the votes cast for Mr. Morgan, after a long and animated discussion. There was an excellent audience, over which Mr. Daniel T. Jones presided. I "GWYL DEWI." St. David's Day is to be celebrated at Cwmllynfell Chapel on Saturday by holding of a special competitive meet- ing and miscellaneous entertainment in connection with the Band of Hope. Active preparations have been made I for the event, which is of sufficient im- portance to merit a large attendance. I MALE VOICE PARTY. The Cwmllynfell Male Voice Party has been considerably augmented in numbers since Christmas, and now the members are being assiduously trained by the conductor, Mr. D. W. Rowlands F.T.S.C., for the ooming season's pro- .eeedings. Among the items which are 'being rehearsed is Cyril Jenkins' "The Assyrians," which will be the test piece at several Eisteddfodau, including Fforesfach, Pontardawe, and Burry- port. The members also intend taking up "Castilla," by Dr. Dan Prothero, which will be the test piece at Clydach and Rhiwfawr. We understand that the party hopes to compete at some of these meetings, and as a result of hard and patient labours, are hopeful of some success. With practice they should ac- complish great things during the sum- mer. I "THE BLACK." J Great progress is being made with the new development at the Black Mountain Colliery, and it is hoped that ere long the place will once more be in full swing. Some difficulty is be- ing experienced in keeping back the water in the pit, but nevertheless a considerable number of colliers are now at work, and, we understand, market- able coal is being brought to the sur- face. A good many of the old work- era are back at the colliery and an almost constant stream of men seeking employment are to be seen going to the premises practically every day. SOCIAL TEA AT THE "CWM." I The social tea and entertainment, which took place last Thursday at the Temperance Hall, Gwys, in aid of the English Mission Church, was a great success. There was an excellent attend- anoe and several pounds were realised in aid of the new hall building, fund.
