One of the questions asked Dr. Williams on Friday evering was whether he was in favour of shorter hours for the workers' wives? Possibly in the future we shall see a strike of houeswives for an increase in their pin- money ? It is understood that the Coalition Govern- ment is going to the Peace Conference with definite intention of proposing the aboli- tion of compulsory military service throughout Europe. We are told that women have risen to the occasion, and rightly so. However, some ot them complain about the laborious work they have to perform, and in many instances their grievance is justified. The Labour meeting on Monday evening resolved itself into a concert, owing to the inability of the advertised speakers to appear, the Rev. lona M. Williams being unable to attend at the last moment, and Mr. W. H. Mainwaring being stranded at Brynamman. 0 0 The farmers are very inconsistent in their business transactions.

Surely, Labour's claims are strong enough to demand attention without such an exhibition of bad temper and unsportsmanlike conduct as was witnessed. < < < An official statement issued from Downing Street on Tuesday gives the following as Mr. Lloyd George's five points:—( I) Punish the Kaiser; (2) Make Germany pay; (3) Let the soldier home as soon as possible; (4) Fair treatment for the returned soldier and sailor; and (5) Better housing and better social conditions. The political agents of the Labour Party are of opinion that within the s hort time at its disposal the party has made a fairly ex- tensive canvass of the constituencies which are being contested by its nominees, and from information to hand it is stated that between 100 and 131 Labour candidates will be re- turned to the new Parliament.

Mrs. Lloyd George at Ammanford. The news that Mrs. Lloyd George would visit Ammanford on Friday last to address a meeting in support of the candidature of Mr. Towyn Jones soon spread through the town and district, and as a result there assembled a huge crowd of people outside the Palace Theatre, Ammanford, awaiting admittance. The spacious building was soon filled, and a rousing reception was accorded Mrs. Lloyd George when she arrived. Und er the able direction of Mrs. C. Fletcher, the local Ladies' Physical Culture Class were in attend- ance, and a guard of honour was formed, which was very suitable and attractive. The Men of Harlech was rendered effectively while the ladies marched on to the stage. Mr. John Lewis, J.P., Bryn-Rhug, who presided in the unavoidable absence of Lady Howard, said that owing to sudden i llness Lady Howard was unable to present. How- ever, he was very glad to be able to introduce to the audience the wife of our great Prime Minister. (Applause). The speaker said that we had heard a great deal about Mr. Lloyd George as Prime Minister, but per- haps we had not heard enough about Mrs. Lloyd George. With Mrs. Lloyd George he was a "little clinker." (Applause). As Mrs. Lloyd George's time was limited-she had to go in a very short time-he had great pleasure in calling upon her to address the meeting. (Loud applause). Mrs. Lloyd George then addressed the meeting, and said: Ladies and gentlemen, I am very sorry to be so late coming here this afternoon, and I am sure you will bear with me when I tell you that I can only give you about two minutes. Some have called this South Wales campaign of mine a whirlwind campaign, and I think it is so. You know that a whirlwind does not stop long in the same place. I am due in Llanelly now, but I wanted to put in a word for Mr.T owyn Jones. He has been a great supporter of the Coalition Government, and I am sure you will agree that he is the best man to repre- sent you in Parliament. (Applause). I hope there are many among the women present who have the vote. I have heard that some women are not very keen with their votes- put in their hands by the Coalition Govern- ment-but I hope they will not be indifferent, because, when we come to re-construction, the things that will be put forward-better housing, child welfare, &c.—will touch every one of us; and I hope you will all go to the poll I have heard of some men who were afraid they would not get home in time for the poll, but when asked about their wives, said: Oh, they are not going to the poll.' Mrs. Lloyd George finished her speech in Welsh, and left amidst loud applause. Mr. Towyn Jones then spoke, and in the i Lad'les an d course of his remarks said: Ladies and gentlemen, I thank you for your kindness in turning up this afternoon to hear Mrs. Lloyd George; you have turned up in your thou- sands. Now, Iwant you women who have a vote-who are coming into your own-to use it. Everyone in the Amman Valley knows that since coming here I have fought hard for women's rights. Women have more good— more of the eternal-in them than men. They keep more to religion than men, and if any- one ought tp get a vote it is the women." The candidate concluded his remarks in Welsh, and said that if the Germans had come into this country they would have treated us with far more cruelty than they had treated Belgium, Montenegro, and other coun- tries. This was not the time for discussions, but for a party of all classes. (Applause). At this juncture Mr. Towyn Jones had to leave the meeting to accompany Mrs. Lloyd George to Llanelly.. The Rev. D. B. Richards said: I feel much happiness in saying a few words in favour of Mr. Towyn Jones. I have been greatly honoured, and I think Ammanford has been greatly honoured to be paid a visit by Mrs. Lloyd George, the wife of our Prime Minister. General Foch has said that Mr. Lloyd George is the man who has caused all the clouds to blow by and leave the sun to shine upon us, and I hope you will do your best to support MT. Towyn Jones, who has been of great help already to his country. We ought to thank God for such a man as Mr. Lloyd George, and no doubt we are all ready to say, Long may he live and I hope you will send him such a supporter as will stand by his side as Mr. Towyn Jones." Mr. John Lewis said he was sure they all felt grateful to Mrs. Fletcher for arranging the guard of honour at such short notice.
Mr. Towyn Jones at the Ivorites' HaH. A crowded meeting was held at the Ivorites' Hall, Ammanford, on Tuesday even- ing, in support of the candidature of Mr. Towyn Jones, the Coalition candidate. Councillor Wm. Evans, who presided, said that he was pleased that such a large audi- ence had come together. Up to that night they had only heard one side of the ques- tions, and things had been carried on in the same strain, but that night they would have a change. The question they had to face was this: Who were going to form the Govern- ment of the future3. They all knew the history of the war, and the war was not finished yet. Were they going to return those people who had been faithful to them, people who had had experience, and who should be given a chance to finish their work, or men who had had no experience whatever? There was some disturbance at the back of the hall, and the speaker remarked that the other meetings which had been held by the sup- porters of the other party had been carried on in good spirit. He had a good experience of Ammanford, and he knew that they would give the speakers a hearing the same as had been done at the previous meetings which had been held. (Applause). Mr. John Lewis, J.P., Bryn-Rhug, moved a resolution pledging the meeting to support Mr. Towyn Jones at the election and to return him with a thumping majority. He was a Welshman who had done everything he could to support the Coalition Government, and he had done it faithfully. Mr. Lloyd George was a man without riches and without wealth-a man who had always done his best for his country. (Applause). Mr. Harry Edmunds, Pantyffynnon, spoke a few words in support of the resolution. Mrs. Phillips, of Lbnelly, then addressed the meeting, and said that she had come there I t) move a resolution on behalf of all women voters in support of the Coalition candidate, Mr. Towyn Jones. At Llanelly, where 4,000 people had met, the resolution was carried triumphantly, and she could see that they in Ammanford wree in strong support of Mr. Towyn Jones. The speaker then proceeded to describe how peace had come about and how the swords were being sheathed. She described how it was stated in the Bible of a person who was weighed in the scales and was found wanting. That could not be said of Mr. Lloyd George. (Applause). He was the man who carried the country through the dangerous past, and she appealed to the women to vote for Mr. Towyn Jones, the Liberal Coalitionist, and thereby put back the men who had always, and would always, sup- port Mr. Lloyd George. (Applause). Mrs. Phillips at this juncture was interrupted by a section of the crowd, and proceeding, she said that there were some present in the meeting who were not voters and who were not re- sponsible for their conduct, as they were juveniles. (Applause). The speaker then read the resolution pledging the support of the women electors for the Coalition Government, and concluded with a stirring appeal for the triumphant return of Mr. Towyn Jones on Saturday next. Mr. Woolley, of Llanelly, a discharged 6oldier, said that he had come there to sup- port the candidature of Mr. Towyn Jones. The speaker described how in previous elec- tion* he had opposed the party to which Mr. Towyn Jones belonged, but he was certain that all party differences should now be sunk and every support given to the Government which had been able to bring the war to such a successful conclusion. The Conservatives had withdrawn their candidate in the Swan- sea Borough, because they felt that the pre- sent Coalition Government deserved to be supported to finish the work which was so im- portant to their interests. He as a Conser- vative agent had sacrificed a little himself by the withdrawal of their candidate. The fee which was paid to agents was always looked forward to, as it was probably the only pay- ment which would be made for the work they had performed. The enemy they had had to fight with was the most inhuman that had ever lived. He had just returned from France himself. (Applause). They could all feel proud that they were British. (Applause). The British had distinguished themselves on every field of battle, and the British ships had conveyed the American troops across the seas, which was a brilliant piece of work. (Applause). The speaker referred to the remarkable British Army which had been formed. It was the best in the world. We had supplied the necessary money for the prosecution of the war, and the present Government had been responsible for the ex- cellent supply of ships, soldiers, finance, &c., which enabled the ivar to be won. That party deserved to be returned to Parliament to finish its work. He did not think the Coalition Government would be long, but it was the Government which should be sup- ported at the present time, as it was to take part in the dictating of peace terms and the future problem of re-construction. He described how Russia had been financed and supplied with munitions, &c., and how the extremists had brought about the collapse of Russia. They even fled from the battlefield and left the Battalion of Death (the women' s bat- talion) to their fate What person who had the cause of democracy at heart would do such a thing? They had become a menace to their own population in Russia. That was a concrete instance of what had happened in Russia. He appealed to the voters to support Coalition Government, which had brought the war to a victorious and glorious conclusion, and they should vote for Mr. Towyn Jones, who had done his best for the country during the serious times which had passed, and who was a staunch supporter of Mr. Lloyd George. (Applause) Mr. S. W. Davies, a discharged soldier, followed, and said he was present on behalf of the discharged soldiers and sailors of Burry Port. Dr. \Villiams, tb- Labour candidate, had asked him (the speaker) whether they as discharged soldiers and sailors would support him at the forthcoming election if he were nominated. Mr. Davies replied that they would if they were satisfied with his pro- gramme. Afterwards he asked Dr. Williams five questions concerning discharged soldiers and sailors, which were satisfactorily answered. When the speaker met Dr. Williams later at Llanelly, he denied that he had ever agreed to support the cause of the discharged soldiers and sailors. They then decided that they were not going to be misled by any man. (Applause). The speaker said that Dr. Williams was out for revolution. (Applause, and cries of No, not the kind you mea ") n. and cries of No, not the kind you mean "). What does he mean then?" asked Mr. Davies. Voices: He means revolution of thought." A lot of shouting and hissing then followed, intermingled with applause. Pnv. Evan Evans, a discharged prisoner of war, reminded the disturbers that if they had been where he had they would not have so much to say. (Applause). Proceeding, Mr. Davies said that the sol- diers had not come back to see their mothers and sisters faced with revolution. (Ap- plause) A Voice: It is not blood; it's an evolu- tion of the mind. (Applause). The work- ing class in this country were being bled. (Applause). They were bled by the capi- talist system in the industrial world previous to any war on the Continent:" (Applause) Mr. Davies said that the little man from Wales had supplied all the needs of the sol- diers whilst out fighting. (Applause). Where would they be to-day without Mr. Lloyd George? (Applause). What had Mr. Lloyd George to do with the food question? In March, 1917, they were faced with defeat at the hands of the enemy. What happened? Mr. Lloyd George asked President Wilson r men. The President agreed to supply the men if he had the ships. Mr. Lloyd George supplied the ships, and the men came over in large forces. He could assure them that the discharged soldiers and sailors held a high opinion of Mr. Lloyd George. Why should they desert him now? (Applause). (A Voice: Because he is a capitalist "). The speaker reminded a section of the audience that the Labour representatives had done absolutely nothing to do away with the income tax on pensions. (Applause). Mr. Lloyd George had always given satisfaction. (Ap- plause). Mr. Gay Rees, another. discharged soldier, addressed the meeting, and said he was an old soldier who had taken part in five wars. (Applause) He was the originator of form- ing a Discharged Soldiers' and Sailors' Fede- ration at Llanelly, which was the mother lodge of Wales. (Applause). Over two million men had been discharged from the Forces, and 1 i million had become members of the Federation. (Applause). Their bond of union was not made of £ s. d., but of the blood they had shed. (Applause). On the 4th of August, 1914, the call was made for soldiers, and on the 8th August he marched forward with his two sons. (Applause). There were some present in the meeting whom he had met in Gallipoli. Applause). Priv. Evans (to the audience) Has the I.L.P. done anything for the men who were prisoners of war in Germany? (Loud ap- plause) Mr. Rees said that Mr. Towyn Jones had done everything in his power for the sake of helping the British Empire, and that credit was due to the Coalition Government for bringing the war to a victorious end. (Ap- plause) There were others who had done their share. The munition workers and the miners had all helped to win the war. (Ap- plause). If anyone deserved to be praised above the others, it was Mr. Lloyd George. (Applause). Mr. Lloyd George was also the means of having Marshal Foch to take supreme command. (Applause). They should support the man as he had supported them in the past. They should support him in the future. (Applause). The speaker then described how Dr. Williams had ap- proached him and enquired whether the Dis- charged Soldiers' and Sailors' Federation would support him. If they agreed that he should represent them, he would throw the Labour Party over to-morrow. (Applause). They should in all justice return the Coalition Government into power, so that they might complete the work which they had in hand. They should do that as a matter of justice to them. He hoped that they would insert a cross opposite the name of Mr. Towyn Jones next Saturday. (Applause). Mr. J. Meredith, Morriston, an ex-inter- national foot baller, then addressed the meet- ing. He said that he was more afraid of the enemy in this country than the enemy outside. When they were fighting the enemy outside, they were united together. (Applause). They were washing dirty clothes in this elec- tion. They should take a calm view of the situation. When the hearts of the people were low, who kept the country from dis- aster? They ought, in all justice, to allow those men who had conducted the prosecution of the war to go back. We are still in a state of war. The people who had led us during the war asked the electorate to support them and return them to Parliament to finish thh work successfully. (Loud applause). A Voice: That's the stuff to give 'em." (Laughter and deafening applause followed). Mr. Meredith humorously remarked that 'it was not often the case to have another speaker assisting him. hi (Laughter) Proceed- ing, he said that to him party politics were impossible at the present time. They should allow the war to be satisfactorily disposed of. (Applause). They had yet a long way to go, and many problems would have to be solved. He hoped they would become united. The Lord save us from doing the same as Russia," remarked Mr. Meredith, amidst cheers. That country had been ruined. There were many differences existing to-day, but they had no time for party warfare. Some people said that Mr. Lloyd George had won the war. He personally had as much respect for Mr. Lloyd George as anyone, but at the same time he respected the men who had been in the trenches as much as Mr. Lloyd George. He (the speaker) did what was possible for him to do. (Applause). The present was not an opportune time for them to turn round and quarrel about party politics. The Welsh Disestablishment had been fought for fifty years, and the Pensions Bill for a hundred years. They would have to be patient, and things would come right in time. (Applause). A Voice: How much pension does one get? After all, you only get 5s. a week." Mr. Meredith: Yes, and 5s. a week is too much for some people. (Applause and laughter) The speaker proceeded to to say that important questions would have to be settled, and they should send the Coalition Government back to finish their work. (Ap- plause) Priv. Evans: What about the Conscien- tious Objectors? Shame! You are a dis- grace to Amman ford. (Applause). I have been three years and two months in Germany, but God help you if you had been there." Mr. Meredith, continuing, said that the little children in Germany were given a regu- lar breakfast of sausage and Anglophobia. (Laughter) He had read and studied the programmes of the other parties, and he had come to the decision that there was no other party which was so worthy of their support as the Coalition Party. (Applause) Germany had had her day, and she should be made to pay for it. (Applause). They should be forced to pay the uttermost farthing she was possessed of. And even then they could not make up for the suffering which they had caused by murdering women and innocent children. A woman' s voice: Yes, they should be made to pay. Make them pay. I'm not going to pay a d- farthing." (Loud cheers) Mr. Meredith: Thanks for one warm- hearted British woman. (Applause). He further said that Mr. Lloyd George was the man of the moment. The little wizard from Wales-i applause) —and Mr. Towyn Jones were fighting for the same cause. In every direction Mr. Towyn Jones had supported him, and they could take his word that Mr Lloyd George' s Government were the best people to be returned to Parliament. (Ap- plause) Mr. Towyn Jones, the Coalition candidate, who was well received, said he sought their suffrage as the official Coalition candidate for th;s constituency of Mr. Lloyd George's Coalition Government. Mr. Lloyd George was, as they were aware, chiefly responsible for having conducted this war to a victorious conclusion. He had organised the Army, the Navy, the forces on land and sea and in the air, ajid had carried the conflict through victoriously. If it had not been for the Prime Minister, Prussianism would have spelt the death of civilisation and the end of demo- cracy. (Applause). They had heard a good deal about a premature peace. He had opposed such a peace with the whole strength of his nature. He wanted a lasting peace- a peace which would do away with the peril of another war. However much he hated war, he feh that the principles of humanity had to be defended, and he did everything which rested in liis power to assist the Government of the day. (Applause). When the call to arms resounded, he was one of those people who had gone through the coun- try to address meetings and encourage recruit- ing. He had asked the boys to unite under the banner. When the Ministry of Munitions was formed, he was asked to assist. He I 'responded by addressing meetings all over South Wales, &c., and had thereby helped to defeat the Germans, and victory had come at last. (Applause). When one realised what Mr. Lloyd George had done, ij was a wonder that he was alive. Undoubtedly Mr. Lloyd George was the outstanding figure in the history of our Empire, and il i v • under the sun to-day. (Loud applause). There were Pacifists in the House of Com- mons who were oppoeed to the prosecution of the war, and who were eagerly watching for any trivtaJ fault they could find in the Prime Minister-people who were determined to overthrow the Government. In spite of everything, Germany had gone do,v.-i (Applause). The campaigns in the o:er spheres of battle were all side-9hows The campaigns in Gallipoli, Egypt, &c., were small in comparison with the Western Front, b ft Mr. Lloyd George knew that the side- shows would have a lot to do with the end. He was undoubtedly the greatest statesman in history. What did Mr. Bonar Law and Mr. Balfour say of him? There was only one genius-Mr. Lloyd George. That was the opinion of one of our greatest statesmen. General Smuts was also loud ;n his praises of Mr. Lloyd George. Many were blaming the Government for seeking election at the present time. But the election was the result of an application from the Trades Unions, which was made on the 8th January of this year to Mr. Lloyd George, who had fulfilled his promise that an election would take place when the war was con- cluded, and now people were blaming him br having kept to his word. (Applause). Mr. Lloyd George had also to get the support of the electorate behind the Government in order to go to the Peace Conference. This election was a national mandate. They should all come together united and sink their small d ff differences. Some of the greatest questions the world had ever faced were to be solved. He had done everything he could, and would continue to do so. When the Peace Confer- ence would be held, justice would be made with Germany. It would have to be s'crn justice. Justice was to be the fundamental principle of the Peace Conference. The Germans would be compelled to pay to the limit of their power. (Loud applause). The speaker remarked, Daliwch ch'i ei thrwyn ar y maen." (Laughter and applause). The League of Nations would also see that such a war would never break out again. We have won the war, let us win peace now. Let us make Germany feel that the way of trans- gressors is hard. (Applause). Another point was this: Conscription was gone. (A Voice: What about Dora?") The candidate re- plied that Dora was also going with the war. There were people in this country who were endeavouring to encourage civil war. Some people were in favour of having the Sinn Feiners into our country to destroy it. They had stated that if they could get the Labour Party in sufficient strength they would get the Sinr. Feiners over here. They had also said that the present Government would have to go. They had promised to make revolution. A Voice: Who, Mr. Jones? (Ap- plause) Mr. Towyn Jones: Smillie." (Cheers). A Voice: Yes, evolution of brain sand ballot." (Cheers). I ask you, Mr. Jones, as a public gentleman, to withdraw those words. Mr. Towyn Jones replied that he would not withdraw those words, as they were true. He would produce a report after the meeting to prove his statement. A Voice: Saturday will decide." (Ap- plause) Mr. Towyn Jones: Yes, Saturday will decide. I am going in." (Applause and laughter) The candidate, proceeding with his speech, referred to Mr. Mervyn Peel, who was a strong supporter of his candidature. It often happened that there was a fight between bro- ther and brother to keep and maintain the country together in the best way. A person would come, as it were, out of the mist, and you would discover at last that he was your brother. He was working as hard as ever. (Applause). In consequence of his office as Welsh Whip, he had to attend to practically all the matters which came before the House from Wales, and he was glad he was able to do something for his native land. With re- gard to the Coalition Government, they would establ sh a Ministry of Health. A Voice: We shall send Dr. Williams there." Mr. Towyn Jones said that the housing problem would also be improved. They would get proper houses instead of hovels and slums. Shipping would also be organised and improved. The Coalition Government had passed the Reform Bill. The agricultural labourer now received a minimum wage of 25s. a week, whilst some were receiv'ng as much as 40s. Educational matters had been improved, and the Minimum Wage Bill had been passed. In conclusion, the speaker referred to the various reforms which had been made by the Coalition Government, and he knew that Mr. Lloyd George's Coalition Government would go back to Parliament. (Applause), Several questions were asked, and answered by Mr. Towyn Jones.

DYLEDSWYDD CYMRU TUAG AT MR. LLOYD GEORGE. At Olygydd Cronicl Dyffryn Aman. I Syr,—Ceisiaf ychydig ofod gennych i ym- ofod gennyc h y m drin a r cwestiwn uchod. Paham y dylasem bleidleisio dros Mr. Towyn Jones? (1) Am ei fod wedi bod ar ei oreu i I gynnorthwyo Mr. Lloyd George a'r Llywodr- aeth bob amser pan oedd gelynion Prydain yn ymosod arno, sef y Pasifistiaid a'r Sosial- wyr. (2) Am ei fod yn wladgarwr trwyadl, ac I yn caru gwneud ei oreu dros ddelfrydau Cymru ac y mae yr hyn y mae wedi wneud drosti yn llefaru yn well na gwag siarad. (3) Am ei fod yn Gristion ac yn gwasan- I aethu Duw ac yn cadw Ei orchymyn.ion, ac yn credu mewn cadw y Dydd Sabbath yn sanctaidd i wasanaeth ei Waredwr. Dyma y cwestiwn mwyaf pwysig i bob crefyddwr heddyw, yw cadw y wlad rhag Materoliaeth ac Anffyddiaeth; ac i fi mae'n been clywed ieuenctyd sydd wedi eu magu yn yr Ysgol Sabothol ac yn y cyfeillachau crefyddol yn cael eu dysgu i ddiystyra crefydd eu cyndadau a'u rhiem. Pwy sydd yn dysgu em plant i fod yn wrthgrefyddwyr ac yn wrth- wladgarwyr? Y Blaid Sosialaidd a Phlaid Annibynol Llafur (I.L.P.). Dyma'r bobl sydd yn cefnogi Dr. Williams, ac y mae I yntau ei hunan wedi votio dros agor cinemas ar y Saboth: ac fe ddywedodd nad oedd gwahaniaeth rhwng un diwrnod a'r llall, ac mai ofergoeledd oedd credu hynny. Fe gariodd morwyr Jonah yn eu llong hyd nes yr aeth yn rhy ystormus; ond y mae morwyr Prydain yn paUu cario Mr. Henderson, Ramsey Macdonald, a Jowett, arweinwyr y Blaid Llafur, a chefnogwyr Dr. Williams. Am hynny, pleidleisiwn dros Mr. Towyn Jones, cefnogwr Mr. Lloyd George, y Cymro pur, ac nid dros Dr. Williams, cefnogwr Ramsey Macdonald a Mr. Henderson, estron- iaid an wiadgar.- Yr eiddoch, GLOWR PROFIADOL.

DEIGRYN COFFA Uwch hunell y Nurse M. Evans, Derwen House, Caerfyrddin, yr hon a fu farw yn ddisymwth tra yn gweini ar ein clwyfedigion yn Edmonton Military. Hospital, Hydref 15, 1918, yn 30 mlwydd oed. Ehedaist o ganol dy wanwyn I Wynfa i dreulio dy haf; Ni weli byth yno un hydref, Na gaea', na gwe ly' r un claf. Ehedaist o ganol griddfannau Hen gewri clwyfedig o' r gad; Ni weli un clwy' na'r un gofid Lle'r ydwyt, ond goreu dy Dad. Ehedaist o ganol amddifaid A galar y bwthyn a'r plas; Ni weli o gylch yr Orseddfainc 'R un gormes ond cariad a gras. Ehedaist o swn y gelynion Uwch awyr be:riannau a' r cledd Ni welir byth yma dy wyneb, Ond deigryn yn crwydro dy fedd. Ehedaist fel gwron y gadfaes, Heb ltarweI dy fam a dy dad Ond gwelir ar gofres it' farw Fel un o gawresau ein gwlad.

Y DDI-OFID. Ar lan Nant Melyn heddyw, Yn swn ei rhediad rhydd, J Eisteddai geneth ieuanc, A rhosyn ar el grudd Yn canu wrth ei hunan .t Alawon Cymru F-Li, Heb bryder na gofa.Jon i O fewn ei chalon hi. Ymguddiais i am ennyd Tu ol i Iwyn o ddrain, I wrando' r eneth annwy l A'i nefol, swynol s-ain; Yr oedd ei llais melodaidd Yn disgyn ar fy nghlyw F el cawod o fendithion 0 wyddfod wen fy Nuw. Nid oedd ei gwisg yn gostus, Ond eto'n dwt a glan, Fel gwisg y cor asgellog, Neu <^ddo'r blodauân. I fi, yr oedd yn wcddus A phrydferth iawn ei nod, Er nad oedd o ran oedran Ond un ar bynjtheg o'd. Mor ddedwydd ydoedd Anni a Fan hynny wrth ei hun, Er nad oedd cyfoeth daear A hithau yn gytun; Hi wenai mewn sirioldeb Ar flodau man y pant, A chanai eiriau swynol. Uwch murmur dwr y nant. Eisteddais yn ei ymyl Am ddwy awr mewn mwynhad, I'w gwrando'n canu Salmau A hen emynau-r wlad, Dywedais wrth ymadael A'r fwyn angylais wen, Boed holl fendithion daear Yn goron ar dy ben." T. D. JOHN.

LLANDEBIE. Nawn Saboth diweddaf, yng Nghapel Wesleaidd y lie uchod, cynhaliwyd gwasan- aeth coffadwriaethol i'r diweddar Lieut. B. A. Lewis, annwyl fab Mr. a Mrs. John Lewis, Brynywawr, Llandebie, yr hwn a syrthiodd ar faes y frwydr yn Ffrainc, T^ch- wedd 8, 1918. Dechreuwyd y gw at.? am ddau o'r gloch. Darllenwyd rhan o Air Duw gan y Parch. J. Towyn Jones, A.S., a gweddiwyd yn effeithiol ar ran y teulu yr. arbennig gan y Parch. W. Davies (B.), Salem. Pregethwyd gan y Parch. D. Corris Davies, Llandeilo, a thraddodwyd anerchiad byw gan Mr. Towyn Jones. Cafwyd unawd gysegredig. I have a Friend in Jesus," gan Mr. Tom Williams, Amanford. Gweddiwyd gan y Parch. J. Meirion Williams, Tirydail, a chwareuwyd y Dead March gan Mr. Matthews, ysgolfeistr, tra yr oedd y gynull- eidfa yn sefyll. Yr oedd y gwasanaeth drwyddo ag eneiniad y Nef arno. Teimlem fod y lien rhyngom a' r byd ysbrydol yn deneu iawn. Credwn ïr Arglwydd drwy Ei Ysbryd ddod atom i gysuro y teulu annwyl yn eu galar, ac i fendithio y gynulleidfa. Daeth cynulleidfa fawr ynghyd-y capel yn llawer rhy fach. Dangoswyd parch eithriadol i'r ymadawedig a'i rieni. Teilwng ydoedd o goffadwriaeth o'r fath. Yr oedd yn un o'r bechgyn mwyaf hoff a chariadus, ac yn boblogaidd gan ei gydnabod. Pe cawsat fyw, cawsai yrfa lwyddiannus yn y cylch addysgol. Yr oedd cyn ei ymuniad a'r Fyddin yn y Brifysgol, a'i gynnydd wedi bod yn amlwg iawn yno. Erbyn hyn y mae galar mawr ar ei ol, ac yntau wedi cael bedd yng nghladdfa Avesnes. Yr Arglwydd a ddiddano y rhieni a'r perthynasau oil. Y mae dau fab arall i Mr. a Mrs. Lewis yn y Fyddin—Lieut. T. H. Lewis, B.A., gynt o Ysgol Ganolraddol Porth, a Willie Lewis, y naill yn Ffrainc a'r llall ym Malestina. Yr oedd y Parch. Philip Evans (M.C.) yn bre- sennol hefyd.
