Attempted Suicide .-A determined effort to commit suicide by the wife of a man for whom a substitute has been found in civil occupation was disclosed to the Ammanford; magistrates on Wed- nesday. The woman, Mrs. Naylor. of Quay Street, it is stated, was found by a neighbour with a rope round her neck, and in a few minutes would have been dead. Her mind is believed to have become unhinged through fear that her husband would have to join the Army. She had previously made an attempt on her life the night before, by opening the gas taps in the house. She was remanded to the Asylum. Much sympathy has been aroused in Ammanford with Mr. D. Thomas, surveyor, of Bryngwyn, and Mrs. Thomas, on the very sad death of their little six-year-old daughter, Margaret Evelyn. The child was apparently in good health up to a few days ago, and then suddenly became unconscious. Specialists diagnosed spinal nerve trouble, the result, probably, of a fall, which, however, was unknown and un- suspected by the parents. Death took place on Saturday last. The funeral was on Wednesday, at Ebenezer, when a considerable attendance of the public marked the intense sympathy of the townspeople with the parents in their great bereavement. The Rev. Corris Davies, Llandilo, and the Rev. H. Owen, Tirydail, officiated. A complimentary concert in honour of Sergt. Emlyn Vaughan, Tirydail, was held at Ebenezer on Monday evening, when Mr. Joseph Griffiths, Tirydail, presided, and Mr. Willie Leyshon, T.C.L., Tirydail, accom- panied the vocalists, who were:—Mr. D.

Nantlais Williams presided, and both men were presented with useful gifts on behalf of the church by Mr. John John. An admirable miscellaneous programme was contributed to by Misses E. A.

BRYNAMMAN. Lieut. J. Henry Jones, who a little time since visited home, is in hospital suffering from a severe cold. He is slowly recovering. The tuition of Mr. Johnny Wilkins, who recently gained his Second Class Colliery Manager's Certificate, was conducted entirely by Mr. Richard T. Howells, Frondeg, Gwaun-cae-gurwen, formerly of Brynamman, teacher of the Brynamman (Upper) Mining Class, of which Mr. Wilkins was a faithful member. Under the presidency of .Mr. Jenkin Jones, headmaster, Upper Council Schools, a cordia l welcome was given to Priv. W. J. Jones, Belle Vue Ter- race, who was on his last leave before going to the Front. A capital pro- gramme was arranged. The Chairman gave a speech, and the accompanist, Mr. Tom Davies, Belle Vue Terrace, gave a selection on the pianoforte. Songs were rendered by Master Myrddin Evans, Miss Lilian Evans, Mr. D. J. Evans, Mr/J. Pia Morgan, Madame Esther Nedhall, and a glee 'by Madame W. J. WiUiams and party. Miss Ethel May Rees and Master Horace Jones gave recitations; Mr. David John Evans gave a solo on the clarionette; and Miss Mary Eurfron Williams a violin solo. Speeches were made by the Rev. W. D. Thomas, Sergt. Roberts, Welsh Regiment, and Mr. Morgan Davies. The hero of the evening was made the recipient of the usual sum of money, which he acknow- ledged briefly but feelingly. The National Anthem was sung to termi- nate a good event. I At Bethania, Rhosamman, the same evening, a capital programme was en- joyed by a good audience on the occa- sion of the departure of Bombardier Pritchard Jones, Rose and Crown, back to the trenches. Mr. Dan Harries occupied the chair, and gave a speech. Mr. Tom W. Jones ably accompanied. Songs were well sung by Miss Dora Evans, Master Jacob Williams, Miss Bessie Jones (who also gave a recita- tion), Miss Doris Jones (who had to re-appear) Mr. Griffith Williams, Mr. David Roderick (who gave a recitation also on his being recalled), M Wm. Hicks, and Miss Lilian Evans. Messrs. Willie Llewelyn and Levi Griffiths gave a fine instrumental duet. Miss Myfanwy Davies gave a recitation. Mr. T. Morris Walters recited; a few verses composed for the occasion, which verses appear by re- quest in our Welsh columns. The Rev. John Llewelyn, pastor, conferred upon the hero the usual monetary gift, which he acknowledged by giving a display with his gas helmet, and even- tually a brief but comprehensive speech. Mr. T. B. Williams sang the Welsh National Anthem to close the pro- gramme.
GWAUN-CAE-GURWEN. Following the lead of many schools in the country, Cwmgorse Council School opened a branch of the National War Savings Association on Monday. Considering that the commencement of the Association came immediately after the great War Loan, the result of the first day' s takings were excep- tionally good, and a credit to both the school and the locality. The hand- some sum collected on the first day has simply staggered the neighbouring dis- tricts, but it is to be hoped that the efforts of Cwmgorse will prove a stimulus to neighbouring schools. The takings on Monday were over £ 150. On Monday evening, at Carmel Vestry, an excellent reception and pre- sentation concert was held for Seaman Tom James Evans, one of our local men who took part in the Battle of Jutland. The meeting was very ably presided over by Mr. Daniel Evans, Cwmgorse; while, on behalf of the Soldiers' and Sailors' Committee, Mrs. (Rev.) B. D. Davies presented the hero with a cheque. Mrs. Davies also made a presentation on behalf of the Ladies' Guild. The following con- tributed to the excellent miscellaneous programme which had been arranged for the occasion:-Lloyd George Davies, Annie Jones, Tom Morris, Mayfril Jones, Dan Lloyd, Evelyn Williams, Maggie Rees, Willie Myrddin James, Miss Mary Walters, Lce.-Corpl. W. R. Kendrick, Miss Olwen Smith, Mr. David E. Jones, Mr. David M. James, Madame Olwen Watford, Miss Ceinwen Smith, and Mr. Idris Smith. Mr. John O. Rees made an efficient accompanist. Saturday was recognised as the Flag Day of the Local Soldiers' and Sailors' Fund. Although the weather was very disappointing, yet the results far exceeded all expectations, and the sellers are to be most heartily con- -gratulated on the result of their efforts. The following is a list of the sellers, and the amount collected:—Bessie Davies and Amy Edwards, 10s. 10d.; Caroline Williams and Nellie Evans, lis. d.; Millie Sandbrook and Kath- leen Lavington, 15s. 3d.; Miss Mary Waiters and Mary Thomas, 32s.; Jno.

LLANDILO. I Corpl. A. Lee, son of Mr. and Mrs. B. H. Lee, Alan Road, who is in the Norfolk Regiment, ha? under- gone a serious operation at Norwich, but is now sjaming raoidly. The death has taken place of Mr. Stewart Bowen, son of Mr. John Bowen, currier, Llandiio, and brother of Mr. Bowen, school attendance officer. The funeral was at Bethel, Rhosmaen, on Tuesday.

The Rev. W. A. Jones officiated at the interment. The opportunity afforded to Llandilo pèople of witnessing the Advance of the Tanks," at Ammanford Palace Theatre this week, should not be missed. Convenient trains run after- noon and evening. Excellent performances of the operettas, Daisy Darling's Dream" and The Musical Village," were given by members of Llandilo. Church Band of Hope. The children had been trained by Miss Hannah Wil- liams, Miss Owen, and the Rev. W. A. Jones (curate), and the pleasure given to the large audiences was proof of the efficiency of their instruction. The choruses were splendidly. given, and the dancing very graceful and charming. Among the outstanding per- formers were Irene Davies in the first contribution, and Elvira Pritchard, Geoffrey Jones, Hubert Stiles, Reggie Jones, and Annie Jane Ball in the second cantata, thcugh too much praise cannot be given to all who took part. Other news is unavoioablv crowded out owing to pressure on our fnc^.
LLANGADOCK. I The Ploughing Match Committee have given S.7 7s. 3d., being the money they had in hand, to the trea- surer of the Llangadock Reception Committee for the boys who return home from the Front.

Gravelle; recitation, Mr. Mervyn Peel; comic song, Miss D. Lloyd Harries (encored). The singing of God save the King brought the programme to an end and Mr. W. T. Morgan, Beehive, is to be highly com- plimented for getting such an enjoy- able concert together in so short a time.
PONTARDULAIS. The Rev. D. Lloyd Morgan, D.D., pastor of Hope Congregational Chapel, has received a letter of sympathy and condolence in his recent bereavement, from Mr. T. J. Davies, private secre- tary to Mr. D. Lloyd George, stating that the Prime Minister will write to him in due course. A funeral service was held at St. Teilo's Church, to the memory of the late Mrs. Brook, of Bolgoed. The Rev. W. Morgan, B.A., vicar, offi- ciated, and spoke of the deceased's charitable 'work. Mrs. R. Leyshon Davies, F.V.C.M., played Handel's and Beethoven's Dead Marches," and the choir sang Dyddiau dyn sydd fel glaswelltyn," under the con- ductorship of Mr. George Reed. At Hope Chapel, on Sunday even- ing, a funeral service to the memory of the late Mr. D. Vavasor Lloyd Morgan was held. Dr. R." Gwylfa Roberts, Llanelly, preached an elo- quent sermon, and Mr. Caredig Wil- liams played the Dead March in Saul." The pastor, Rev. D. Lloyd Morgan, D.D., extended his thanks to all who had been so kind to him and his family in their sad bereavement. On Sunday evening, the Picture Palace, which had been lent for the occasion by Mr. W. Haggar, gratis, with his usual kindness, was comfort- ably full. In the unavoidable absence of Mr. Haggar, through illness, the chair was taken by Mr. Owen Jones, who was supported on the platform "by all the members of the local commit- tee. The attfaction was a lecture, With Our Boys at the Front," by Ald. David Davies, Mayor of Swan- sea, who was accompanied by the I Mayoress and Master Eric Davies. The lecturer dwelt occasionally on the humorous as well as the serious and sad side of the war, and before concluding, appealed earnestly to all who possibly could to contribute towards the War Loan. The chairman proposed a very hearty vote of thanks to the Mayor of Swansea, and pointed out how in- defatigably he had worked in Swan- sea and elsewhere for their gallant sol- diers, and that he had come there that evening to freely give his services. Mr. Mathew Griffiths, J.P., D.C., secon- ded, and the usual vote of thanks was accorded Mr. Haggar-. Ald. Davies suitably replied, and also proposed a vote of thanks to the chairman, which was carried. The proceeds were in aid of Mr. lean Davies, Glanyrafon Street, formerly employed as engine- driver at the Cambrian Tinplate Works.
Signs of Failing Sight. Failing sight manifests itself in various ways. When your eyes tire quickly when reading or sewing, when things swim" or become dim after being looked at for a time, when you get dark specks float- ing before the eyes, when they ache or burn or when you get severe frontal headaches you should lose no time in consulting a reliable Optician. The Value of Good Glasses. A pair of good eyes may grow constantly stronger and keener in hard and continuous work, and retain their vigour as long as, if not longer than, any other organ of the body. But when one discerns the slightest symptoms of dimness, a tired feeling, ache in the eyeballs, or continual headaches* then glasses may be of great service in preventing serious trouble. But be sure you begin with the right glasses. It is impossible to over- estimate the danger of badly adjusted glasses, and many sights have been utterly ruined by lenses fitted by incompetent men. Don't be blind to your own interest-to that interest which promises health —and good eyesight-by wearing cheap or maladjusted glasses, totally un- suited to the defects of your eyes, when you can get the best advice and have fitted scientifically accurate lenses, with no more trouble, and at reason- able prices.

On Tuesday, the body of Mr. Wm. Richards, butcher, was recovered from a well into which he had fallen. It is presumed that the deceased, who was 76 years of age, was fetching water, and that he had a seizure and fell in. The local Reception Committee entertained Priv. Willie James, Mill Terrace, at the Church School, under the presidency of Mr. Joe Davies. Local amateurs rendered songs and recitations. A donation from the Reception Fund was handed to Priv.

GARNANT NOTES. I [By GARNANT.] I The members of the Ammanford and Dis- trict Chamber of Trade will close their shops the whole of St. David's Day (1st March, 1917), in honour of the Patron Saint and also of our illustrious Prime Minister.—Advt. A fire bro # # # ear l y hours A fire broke out in the early hours of Saturday morning at the motor garage of the Brothers Lew:s, Gors-y- Garnant Farm. The car being in at the time, has been completely spoiled. It is a mystery how the place took fire. The hayrick of Mr. Willie Morris, I Llwynderi, was spoiled by fire last week; also the outhouses were burnt to the ground. Considerable damage was done, and I hope that the work- men will shew their sympathy in a practical way towards Mr. Morris, who has a large family to maintain. The death took place, on Monday, of Mr. David Bassett, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Bassett, Ganant Road. The deceased was 37 years of age, and had been ailing for a considerable time. The interment was on Friday, at Old Bethel cemetery, there being a very large attendance of relatives and friends. The Rev. J. Edryd Jones officiated. Great sympathy is felt with the family in their sad bereavement. Gellyceidrim Colliery has the finest record for working in the Anthracite District. Not a day has been lost through the depression. in trade. They have sufficient inland orders to keep them going, thanks to their salesmen for their insight, and also to the beer- shifters for their support in keeping the concern going. The more they drink the more coal is burnt by the breweries, which to-day is such a great advantage to the public of Cwmaimman. How many thousands will the Anthracite District receive from the coffers of the Prince of Wales Fund in their next appeal? is the question of the day, so as to cover some of the gravest sufferers of the district through depres- sion in trade. We have in the Dulais Valley to-day families living on dry bread, owing to the fact that there is no work at the collieries. It is a great shame that millions of money are kept in coffers while the families of honest workmen are in want of proper food, through no fault of their own.

Brynamman Doctor's Illness Presumably owing to overwork, the health of Dr. J. W. Lewis, J.P., Danycoed has failed to such an ex- tent that a complete rest has been deemed absolutely necessary. The doctor has already been confined to his room for some time, and his prac- tice is being supervised by Dr. Lyden. By request, a deputation, com- prising of Messrs. Edward Phillips, Station Road; J. D. Morgan, Uan- dilo Road; and Samuel Williams, Cwmgarw Road, waited upon Dr. Lewis the other day to receive instruc- tions respecting medical treatment to those under his care, during his illness. The services of Dr. Lyden, assisted under abnormal circumstances by Dr.. Lewis, Ystalyfera; Dr. J. Lloyd Owen, M.D., Brynamman; Dr. James, Gwaun-cae-gurwen; and Dr. Owen, Cwmllynfell, were recom- mended. The deputation convened a meeting at the Upper Council Schools on Monday evening, when the situation was considered and discussed. Mr. Edward Phillips occupied the chair, and the proposal was defined by him and Mr. J. D. Morgan. A rather lengthy discussion ensued, during which numerous gentlemen ven- tilated their opinions. Mr. William Davies proposed that the recommen- dation of Dr. Lewis be adopted, and Mr. John Daniels seconded. Mr. Herbert Thomas spoke in favour of having a more exhaustive dis- I cussion relative to the matter before it was passed into a r esolution. The suggestion re-opened the discourse, each person expressing his sorrow and regret that Dr. Lewis was obliged to suspend his medical duties owing to ;ll. health. There was no doubt, said Mr. Thomas, that overwork was responsible for his indisposition. Two doctors were undoubtedly need ed to cover the area now deprived ot its doctor. wne ot these assistants also should be able to speak Welsh, as there were many aged people in the place who could not speak and understand English. Several persons spoke as to the doctors' hands being full, and Mr. Jno. Evans, Brynamman Road, said he knew that certain medicos were unable already to cope with the demand for their services. He was really sorry for Dr. Lewis in his illness. Mr. Griffith Williams, Mountain Road, proposed that an appeal be made for two assistants in place of Dr. Lewis during his illness. Mr. Herbert Thomas seconded, and it was almost unanimously passed,. Mr. Wm. Thomas, Bristol Terrace, proposed a vote of sympathy with Dr. Lewis in his illness, and wishing him a speedy recovery. Several seconded, and it was passed with general cor- diality.
