GUttlTWRCH CVmLVNFELL! Mr. Wm. Morris, of Colia NLi.vr f'-arin, Cwmllynfell, met with an un- fortunate accident whilst following his ♦^nipVoymeait- at the ithosamman Col- liery. A fall of atone took place, and •Morris reopived injuries to his thigh ) ttstdside, which were at the time titought to bo serious. He has, how- ever, escaped better than was at first iloticipated, and is now making good progress. i t^e. Job Davies, A.8.C., has ar- rived homo at Cwmllynfell on Hick furlough, after having what many would consider a somewhat narrow es- j cape from death. Pte. Davies, whose j wife was recently buried, contracted ferer at Salonica, and was brought to Malta for treatment. He was on one of two. hospital ships sailing from Malta, the other; boat" being the ill- fated "Rewa," which was torpedoed ifi the Bristol Channel nearly a fork- Wight ago. It was inorerl by accident than design that Davies U8 not on the torpedoed vessel, and the ship he was I on was only an hour's journey in front of the "Iteira Owirllynfell people .s.btwed their appreciation uf Pte. Davies's services when a presentation araefririg wit6 hold on Thursday even- tag. ,s HrLessra. Evan Jenkins and Ben Wil- liams, earpenter, have both left Cwm- flynfell, the former to take up Nation- al Se-rvi«t work aid" The" latter to join the Army. Girite a number of local people are flspdap with illness this weeV, and all have the best wishes of their friends a speedy recovery. fhe funeral of the four-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Young, Cwmllynfell, took place on Saturday at Cwtnllyn- fell. Mr. Young,, who is a discharged soldier, is one of the, heroes of Mona, and he and his wife have the sympathy ef a large circle of friends. The collieries m the Cwmtwreh dis- trict are again working but indiffer- ently, and this is attributed to the loss of tonnage and shortage of trucks. There is at present little hope of an improvement. A correspondent complains bitterly of the state of the bridges in both (Aangui,eke nn(i Cwarter Bach parishes at Cwmllynfell and Upper Cwmtwreh. iTfcese bridges are without adequate roiling and proper approaches, and un- less something is immediately done it is feared that it will be necessary for a ooroner's jury to awaken the res pec- ttve parish councils to a sense of re- sponsibility. Shopkeepers in the CwmUynfeII dis- trict are being warned against burg- lary. 1-? appears that the light-angered fraternity are somewhat busy in tbo district, henoe the warning that had been given, particularly to lock-up shopkeepers. | On Sunday evening a minion service was-.held at Beulah Clla-pel, the b-ng- ing evangelist, Mr. G. R. Hughes, Ammanford, conducting the meeting. He gave an address' a.nd:Ù} sing. The service was a complete success. Under the atwpk^-s of the Cwm- twrch Young People's Society, on Monday evening, the Rev. W. T. Hughes, Beulah, gave an address at Bethel on "Williams Pa-utyoelyn." The rev. gentleman, spoke with his usual force and eloquence, and his address was thoroughly enjoyed. Mr. J. Dyfrig Owen presided, iand a vote of thanks to the speaker waS proposed by Mr. Rhys J. Powell, and seconded by Mrs. James PowelL Others who spoke were Miss Rachel Davies, Omn. James Powell, and Mr. H. J. Griffiths. The death took place at Follansbee, West Virginia, in December of Mrs. Mary Hannah Watkins, wife of Mr. Arthur Watkins, prominently con- nected with tho tinplate trade, and formerly of Llanelly and Llantrisant. Mrs. Watkins, who was the eldest daughter of the Rev. and Mrs. W. Trefor Davies, Llanelly, is survived by six children, the eldest of whom, Pte. Knrry. Watkins, is with the American Expeditionary Force in France. The Rev. Tmfor, Davieg ministered at Bethel, Glsntwrch, for a number of years, and he and the family have kept up a; warm connection with many of the older residents. The presentation meeting of Mr John Hughes, secretary of Cwmllynfell Chapel will bo hel(J on Monday even- ing next, and not on Saturday as pre- viously annouxiced. The presentation will take the form of handsome Hltimin atod address and a roll-top desk. One day last week a singular acci- dent befell Mr Daniel Evans, brother of Mr William Evans, Dderifach, Rhiwfawr. It appears that he was attending to the feeding of the cows, and whilst in the hav loft over the cow-shed throwing the hay to the manger underneath, he slipped, and fell through- the vent in the p floor. Mr Eva-ns fell on one of the cow's horns, vrhich tore a big gash in his cheek and injured his eye. It is not yet cer- tain as to whether the eye will be "totally lost or no.0 He wå. attended surgically, receiving ft number of r,tit-chok in his obe.Ai and, it is to be hoped, that he will speedily recover.
