An Appeal to All Pontardawe Red Cross Women's Voluntary Aid Detachment To the Editor. I Sir.—Will you kindly allow me to use your paper as a medium for an ap- peal to all residents in this district, and more particularly to those residing in Pontardawe, on behalf of the above. Recent international developments have placed this country in such a position that every man, woman, and child is bound to come forward to help, as far as they) are able, to defend our country's liberty, our homes and our honour. The forces of the United Kingdom have been called rpon to de- fend this country, and a large and important Branch of this immense or- ganisation is the Nursing department. This may be called at any time, and the necessary arrangements are being made all over the country to equip the necessary hospitals, and prepare for the nursing of our sick and wounded. Hospitals are being prepared, and nurses enrolled, and a nursing estab- lishment organised in this district which will, of course, require not only money, but also the necessary articles for fitting up a hospital such as beds, bedding, cooking utensils, basins, towels, bandages, etc., etc. All those who are willing to provide these requirements, in case of need, are asked to let me know, definitely, exactly what thej will lend, and they are asked to have them in readiness for use at a moment's notice. I ask for them on behalf of our King and Country, and those who are going to fight for us. Also these who can, and will give their personal services are asked to come forward in this hour of need. I would add that a com- mittee is being formed to regulate the whole management, of the depart- ment, and it is perhaps needless for me to say that every possible care will be taken of all articles lent for this purpose. Will those who are willing to act. and help kindly write at one stating how they will help, and what they will lend to ADA LLOYD, Pla* Cilybebyll, Pontardawe, R. S. O., Glam. 6th August, 1914.
DULAIS VALLEY CHAT. The people of Seven Sisters had the opportunity of hearing a once popular concert singer in the person of Miss Jennet Garnett. Miss Garnett has now left the concert platform, finding that there is a greater scope for her undoubted talent on the boards of the picture palace. Last week she fulfilled a week's engagement at Studts' Cine- ma, giving a number of Welsh airs in her wonted style. She is known now as Miss Gene Santley. On Wednesday the Sunday Schools of Zoar and Ebenezer held their annual treat. The children and scholars of the former school marched in procession to Ebenezer singing well- known hymns on the way. A delight- ful afternoon was spent on the meadows of Ynypdawly farm. The United Free Churches of Seven Sisters held their annual outing on Tuesday, jourmeying by train to Swansea. The party consisted of 404 adults, and 340 children, a very en- joyable day was spent on the Swansea sands. On the return journey a somewhat unusual and even sensational mishap occurred. Just after leaving Swansea the oil lamp in one of the compart- ments (the train belonged to the N. and B. DIy.), buret, and a oon- flaguration followed. No serious damage was made, but Mr D. J. Phil- lips, Standert terrace, was scorched on the arm, and Mr SI. Davies, Bryncae, and Mr David Morgan, F.T.S.C., damaged their clothing. Six adults and 13 chilrren occupied the compart- ment. The arrangements, made by Mr Thomas, the Seven Sisters station- master, were complete in every way, and barring the unfortunate accident referred to, the comfort of the travel- lers was ensured. .j The wedding took place on Wednes- day, morning of Mr J. Kenan, Martin's Avenue, Seven Sisters, and Mies Edith Davies, daughter of Mr Wm. Davies, also of Martin's Avenue. The cere- mony took place at Neath. There are a number of reservists re- sident in the Valley, all of whom have returned to the colours. The pulpit at Seion Chapel, Seven Sisters, was occupied on Sunday by the Rev. Mr. Griffiths, Penrhiwceiber. Next Sunday a one-time pastor, and the brother of one-time pastor, namely the Rev. Vincent Thomas, Clydach, will be the preacher. The Rev. W. B. Tawe Griffiths, pastor of Salem Bap- tist Chapel, exchanged pulpits with the Rev. Mr. James, of Llandovery. The marriage took place on Tuesday at Bethania C.M. Chapel, Morriston, of Mr Idris George, son of the late Mr Francis George, Seven Sisters, and Francis i'T-ffi' ibs, daug l )ter of Mr. Miss Sal. Griffiths, daughter of Mr. Wm. Griffiths, Morr,iston. The bride, who was given away by her father, was attended by the Misses Agnes and Olwen Griffiths, sisters of the bride, who acted as bridesmaids. Mr Fred Stockham acted as best man. Among I the guests at the ceremony were Mr. and Mrs. Jos. Griffiths, who are on a I visit from America (brother and in sister-in-law of the bride), Mrs. Benj. Jones, Stickle Gwynion, Seven Sisters, sister of bridegroom, Mrs. Isaac Con- WY. Mynachlog, Seven Sisters (sister of bridegrom). Mr Francis George an Mr Thos. George, Seven Sisters (brothers of bridegroom). j W, A. WILLIAMS, Phrenologist, can ) be consulted "ilv at the Victoria Arcade (near the Marker, Swansea. The bride, who has been an assistant imi.stress at the Seven Sisters' Council School for many years, was presented with a silver cake basket by the scholars and teachers of the Council School. The honeymoon is being spent at Llandrindod. The guard cf the N. and B. Rly. being asked when the train was due at Neath replied that he hoped to reach that detectable town every day. I At the Neath Board of Guardians on Wednesday a resolution was passed protesting against the unnecessary and uncalled-for rise in the price of 1000.. Mundane matters still occupy the mind and attention of the people of the Dulais Valley. The Chamber of Trade axe determined to acquire a re- creation ground for the people of Seven Sisters, and are calling a meet- ing of the public for Wednesdey, even- ing. They have taken this step on the suggestion of the local athletic associa- tion, and their efforts are such as should be encouraged in very possible way. Colonel Gough, the squire of Ynys- cedwyn House, Ystradgynlais, has ex- pressed his desire that portions at any rate of his estate should be laid out for building purposes on Twon Plan- ning lines. This is a deter mi llation that oould easily be followed by other landowners to the great advantage of the people. Mr Venables Llewelyn and other gentlemen interested in Crynant have already expressed them- selves similarly. As far as they are concerned the next move is witly the Neath Rural District Council. Now that Mr Evans-Bevan has acquired the Miers' estate it is to be hoped that he will follow the example of Colonel Gough. Mr Bevan is a man of genuine public spirit, and has shown himself on numerous occasions really anxious for the welfare of the people. The projected developments at Onllwyn ought to bo considered from this view- point. SPORTSMEN will earure success by purchasing their requirements from H. ATKINSON, Union Street, Swansea.

CWMTWRCH AND GWYS NOTES OBITUARY I Cwmtwrch this week mourns the Joes of one of its most esteemed and respected of inhabitants, and quite a gloom was cast over the village on Bank Holiday morning when the sad news spread of the death of Mrs. Jennet Ann Griffiths, age 24, the wife of Mr Phillip Griffiths, Maespk-a, and second daughter of Mr and Mrs. Wm. Griffiths. The Square. Deceased had but a short illness, being about only a. few days prior to death, and on Friday evening gave birth to a child. On Monday she died of heart failure. Mrs. Griffiths was a faithful mem- "ber of Beulah Chapel, where she will be greatly missed. Much sympathy is felt with the family in their sad be- (reavement. On Wednesday afternoon a large number of deceased's friends gathered to v the last tribute of respect, when The remains were buried at Bethania Cemetery, the officiating minister being the Rev. W. T. Hughes, Beulah. WEDDINGS A very pretty wedding was solem- nized at. the English Congregational Church, Yetalyfera, on Thursday last, the contracting parties being Miss Violet Lewis, of Lower Cwmtwrch, and Mr Frank Winfield, of the same place. After the ceremony the happy, couple left for Fishguard, where the honey- moon is being spent. Both are very popular in this place, the bride being a school teacher at the Gurnos School, and have the good wishes of a large number of friends. On Saturday at Pontardawe Regis- try Office the marriage took place of Mr "Jack" James, of this place, to a lady of Glantawe, Ystradgynlais. The pulpit at Beulah Chapel en Sunday morning was occupied by Mr' James Evans, eldest son of Mr and Mrs. Evans, newsagent, who intends entering the ministry. Mr Evans is a young man with a promisig future, and preached a very forceful sermon, which was much appreciated by a. large oongregation. We wish him every ellecess. THE WAR. Like every other place the war fever las spread over Cwmtwrch,. and old and young are deliriously excited and very much affected. Many local men have been called to the colours, and on Wednesday the local Terriers were to be seen wending their way to the Drill Hall, Gurnos, with their bundles on their shouolders. Quite a thrill ran through the Cwm when the shrill notes of the H. Co. bugles rang out on Wednesday, calling the men to arms. GILWEN BRIDGE This bridge us last nearmg com- pletion, and be fore the holidays the wood work forming the mould of the ferro-eoncrete was taken away, leav- ing a very imposing structure. It is stated that the authorities are quite satisfied with the work. A new bridge near the old Hendreforgan Colliery is shortly, to be constructed. THE HOLIDAYS. u'L L_ These past away verv quieuv Here-- "nothing doing." Many have gone to the Wells, Aberaeron and Blackpool, but a quieter time has not been ex- perienced in Cwmtwrch for years. Cwmtwrcli is now without its regu- lar postmen. Walter Trott and Gim- lett, both having left the place on Wednesday to join their respective regiments. Both men received a splendid ovation on their departure, which shows the popularity of the local letter carriers. A vivd picture of the tragedy of war is shown in Trott's case: he was compelled to go at a few hours' notice, leaving a wife and six little kiddies behind him. RENT DAY. -1 I It was Ground Rent Day at tile INOW I Tredegar, Gwys, on Wednesday, when the tenants of Lord Tredegar paid I their due, afterwards partaking of a splendid dinner prepared by the genial landlady. A larg9 number of the tenants canw together from all over the estate, and a real good time V- spent. Mr n: L. Thomas and Mr. Harris, Brecon, Were in attendance.
