LLANDILO. I The Elementary Schools and County School have again re-opened. This is a good sign that the influenza epidemic is abating. Priv. Tom Rees, of the R.E., is home on leave. He is the son-in-law of Mr. Edward Butt, of Railway Terrace, Ffairfach. A child of Priv. Rees died a few weeks ago, and although a telegram was despatched to him in France, it was not received in time to enable the bereaved father to attend the funeral. A service of praise and thanksgiving was held in the Llandilo Parish Church on Thurs- day evening of last week, the Ven. Arch- deacon Robert Williams, vicar, conducting. There was a large attendance, and the ser- vice was a most solemn and impressive one. Mr. P. R. Daniel, organist, presided at the organ. Special thanksgiving services were held under the auspices of the Welsh Free Churches of Llandilo and district on Sunday last at l? Mon d ay at Sa l em Capel Newydd, and on Monday at Salem (C.M.) Chapel. On Thursday, services were held at Tabernacle, St. Paul's (Wesleyan), and Ebenezer (Baptist). The meetings throughout were well attended. Collections were made at each service in aid of the Llan- dilo and District Sailors' and Soldiers' Fund.

These make three members of the family who have passed away during the last few weeks. Sincere sympathy is extended to the parents, brother and sisters- in their bereavement. The funeral of the two lads took place on Wednesday, the place of burial being the Tabernacle cemetery, and was well attended. The service was con- ducted by the Rev. Win. Davies, pastor.
