AMMANFORD. Sapper Evan Davies, Royal Engineers, ^fitecently returned to his home at CynJais v'iew, Llandebie Road, after serving with the forces since the commencement of hostili- ties. He al so served on Gallipoli. The many friends of Mr. E. Recs Thomas, late of Bryngwyn, Penybank, Amman ford 1 will be glad to hea rthat he is not going to East Africa to recuperate, as he I has been successful in obtaining beneficial treatment in England. It will be worth your while to give a call. -The spacious hall has been recently decorated, and the tables are in fine condi aoi. h holds the distinction of being the best b.iliard hall in South Wales. The refreshment bar is a feature. Don't forget it is the Lucar;a Billiard Hall, top of Arcade (W. H. Crow, Manager) Ammanford fair was held on Wednesday. The attendance exceeded the average, and there was a fair supply of cattle. Pigs were in plenty, and the prices exhorbitant. The amusement section was well isprcisnted, and quite an enjoyable day recorded for the younger element. At the Palace on Wednesday evening, a performance of the Welsh drama "Maes-y- Meillion" was given by the Diih's Dramatic Company, Pontardulais. Mr. D. G. Edwards, president of the local Trades and Labour Counc-il presided over a large audience. The proceeds will be handed over to a deserving cause in the locality. The marriage is announced to take place of Miss Annie Rees, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Rees, Ravenhill, Penybajik, to Mr. E. Rees Thomas, late of the .Pembrokeshire Yeomanry, who, prior to the war, resided in Wind Street, Ammanford. Mr. Thomas saw much active service dufring the war, and fought on three fronts. A brother of Miss Rees fell in Palestine.
BRYNAMMAN. I The local band is at it busily preparing for the Gwaun-cae-gunven contest next Saturday. Several old and experienced players have re- joined the institution. The Brynamman and District Fanciers Society have decid-ed to hand over the pro- ceeds of their next annual show to the funds of the proposed new PubLic Hall and Library. This society has handed substantial sums to local charities since its inauguration, and has "already justified its existence, if only for this fact. The Brynamman football team will play Ammanford next Saturday, and a good game is anticipated. Brynamman being a young squad, it is for us not to expect much from them this time, unless they have a surprise in store. By the way, who was so really kind as to cut down with a saw the soccer gaol posts fixed on the common? Only recently the players brought them from down the valley, and paid a fancy price for them. It would be well to know what service they are performing now and where, for they were taken away. What a mean and impudent action indeed. F annelS and all auction goers will do well to consult the posters now distributed all over the district, respecting the Bryn Uchaf, Brynamman, sale, September 24th. Mr. John Thomas has decided to give up farming, and take to hauling. An excellent stock of farm produce, machines, utensils, and everything pertaining to farming will be put on sale, and a brisk exchange is anticipated, as the lots offered cannot but: command a great attraction. Come in crowds to one of the best auctions billed for the distinct. Mr. Daniel Jenkins and Sons, Gwaun-cae-gurwen, will conduct the event in their usual pleasant and genial manner.
CWMAMMAN. At the Gorseinon Eisteddfod, held on Saturday last, the winner of the tenor solo was Mr. Stephen Rogerson, Glanamman. The champion recitation was divided between Mr. Tom Harry (Garnant) and Miss Miriam Evans, Glanamman. Miss Lizzie James, Brynderwen, Garnant, holds the distinction of being the first lady in the Amman Valley to gain the A.T.S.C. diploma. She was one of the successful candidates who sat at the recent examinaton, heid under the auspices of the Tonic Sol-ffa College.
GWAON-CAE-GURWEN. The Gwaun-cae-gurwen Silver Band took the first prize in Class A at Seven Sisters on Saturday. This is the fifth fi,rst prize won since they've received the new instruments, out of five competitions. This reflects great credit on their conductor, Mr. T. J. Rees, F-T.S.C. They are again competing at Cwmgorse next Saturday. A lectern was dedicated, last Sunday, to the memory of eleven heroes who have fallen in the war who were members of the Lknfair Church. The Rev. D. W. Thomas, M.A., vicar of Llandebie, was the officiating clergy- man. The service on Sunday afternoon was « very impressive one. Sergt. Baker coo- I ducted the singing, and Mr. Tom N. Jones was the organist. The friends of Mr. Tom Evans, B.Sc. (Lond.), will be pleased to hear that he has been appointed, out of a large number of applicants, as Senior Science and Mathe- matics Master at one of the most important schools in Yorkshire. Mr. Evans commenced his studies at the Ystalyfera Intermediate School, where he distinguished himself as one of its most able scholars. During his stay there he won the mathematics prize every year in his form, and when in Form V. he took five prizes out of sevenprizes offered. He passed the Junior C.W.B. Examination with five distinctions, and the Senior wih three distinctions with exemption from the Welsh Matric. He also passed, the London Matric. the same year. He furthered his studies at the University College, Gower Street, London, where he again distinguished himself. He passed all the Sessional Exami- nations, and passed his Inter. B.A. and the Final with Honours in Organic Chemistry, and was placed third throughout the Univer- sity of London, and won the third prize. He commences his duties in Yorkshire at the end of September. He was lately Science Master at Canton Secondary School, Cardiff. His sister, Miss Mary Evans, has lately been appointed certificated mistress at the Banwen Council School, Brynamman.
u. LLANDEBIE. I Miss Uecima Morgan, the young Llandebie vocalist, carried away a number of the prizes offered at the Gorseinon eisteddfod, held on Saturday last. She took first under 12 and 16 years of age, and prfemier honours in the novice solo. A worthy record.

LLAN D I LO. I 1 here are still in the town a large number of visitors, who are availing themselves of the delightful walks around and pleasure afforded by the magnificent scenery. The Rev. William Davies, The Walk, pastor of the Tabernacle and Capel Newydd Congregational Churches, whem we regret, is still not enjoying very good health, is at present recuperating at Llandrindod Wells. His large circle of friends wish iiim a speedy recovery. Messrs.

!Interested Valley Visitors.I
Interested Valley Visitors. I Mr. an d Mrs. T. G. Milne, an d their Mr. and Mrs. T. G. M,ilne, and their daughter, Miss M. Eveline Milne, of Rosaria, Argentine Republic, along with their nephew, Mr. E. C. Davies, Bootle, Liverpool, are spending what they term a most pleasant holiday in the valley at present. They are the guests of Mr. Gomer Harris, Penybont House, Brynamman. They have resided over 31 years in Argentine, having sailed from their notive town, Liverpool, thereto. This is their first visit to the valilsy, and are much impressed by the beautiful mountain scenery, and much appreciate the .invigorating fresh air. During the week they have visited many places if interest in the district, among which was the Glynbeudy Tin Works, being not a little surprised at the many processes the .iron har had to go through before coming a tinned sheet. Mr. Milne had on many occasions seen Valley tin plates unloaded at present home ports, but had never entertained the idea of how it was manufactured. Mr. and Mrs. Milne, accompanied by their brother-in-law, Mr. Gomer Harris, attended divine service at Hermon Sunday morning, and were charmed with the soul-inspiring and emotional oration of the poet-preacher pastor (Alfa). Mr. Milne addressed the meeting, and 4expiressed hits great delight and gratitude in being present. He is the superintendent of the Rosario Water Works and Road Drainage Company, Ar- gentine Republic, and has about 80 clerks under his supervision. They wvill return to Argentine in October, with vivid and happy thoughts of this visit. We wish them further thorough enjoyment in our midst until the hour of their departure, and a pleasant voyage home across the seas. -u<

Amman Valley Sporting Gossip
Amman Valley Sporting Gossip On Saturday next, both Rugby and Soccer will be in full swing throughout the Valley. The Ammanford Rugby Club play Bryn- amman, and the Soccerites a friendly game with Gorseinon. I am able this week to present a list of the Soccer ifxtures. Readers will notice that a number of fresh teams are indudd in the list °" ot opponents. Un rriday evenmg last, the players met at the Branch Office of the Dis- charged Sailors' and Soldiers' Federation, Mr. Blackwell, School House, presiding. Two names were put before the meeting for the position of captain, and eventually Mr. Tommy Twist, Field Street, was elected. Mr. jack Morgan, Llandebie Road, was ap- pointed vice-captain, and the secretarial duties were placed in the hands of Mr. W. J. Crow, the Lucania Billiard Hall. » The secretary to the Garnant A.F.C. writes to say that the club is very much alive, and that the members are working ener- getically in preparation for a successful season and for the future of the game in the Valley. The committee has been faced with one draw- back, and that is a suitable playing field, but this obstacle has practically been surmounted. The thanks of the committee are due to the number of supporters, who have been so en- couraging that they have entered the club in the Swansea League (First Division), and also have handed in an entry for the cup offered. At the general meeting, Mr. W. S. Wardlow was elected presdent, and Coun- cillor D. Thomas chairman of the committee, with an able vice in the person of Mr. Wm. Jones. The other officials elected were:— Treasurer, Mr. Fred Ellis; secretary, Mr. J. Colton, Glanamman; captain, Mr. Jack Shariley vice-captain, Mr. O. Box. In addi- tion, a large and influential committee was appointed. The letter concludes: Success awaits us." In last week's issue of the Chronicle a challenge was issued by "Excelsior," on behalf of the Garnant Cricket Club, to play Ammanford on any neutral ground the losers to pay for a supper for both teams. This challenge has been accepted, and arrangements are being mad accordingly. In all proba- bility the match will be played on Thursday of next week, and the Llandovery College ground has been suggested as the arena of the figt. The weather will be a great factor if this game comes off, and we hope that King Sod will tiot forget it. Should Am- man ford lose, a well known local sportsman has consented to defray the cost of the repast. In the game Ammanford v. Llangennech, Mr Ossie Edwards, the Cross Inn Hotel, offered for competition among the players of the local club, a valuable cricket bat for the highest score. Mr. Mill Davies, the success- ful batsman, compiled 42 runs. During the season Mr. Edwards has done much to further the interests of the local club, and supported it financially. He also gave the use of the field free of charge.

Presentation to Llandovery…
Presentation to Llandovery Stationmaster. At a meeting of railwaymen, presided over by Mr. Herbert James, goods guard, Riga House, on Monday evening, Mr. Aldrfdge, the popular stationmaster,' who is leaving the district for Marsden, Yorkshire, was pre- sented with a beautiful leather travelling case and wallet, both of which had the recipient's initials inscribed thereon. The Chairman said he had served under several stationmasters, but he had never found aiy one of them more obliging and courteous than Mr. Aldridge. Mr. Rd. Lloyd, engine-driver, concurred. He had known Mr. Aldridge for very many years. He had always found him kind, and never too busy to give an opinion or advice to the staff. Llandovery's loss would be Marsden's gain. Councillor Rd. Thomas, who was much affected in making the presentation, said that although it gave him great pleasure to hand it to Mr. Aldridge, his feelings were mingled with grief at the fact that he was losing a stationmaster who had been so many years in the district. He wished him good health and the best of luck. Mr. John Edwards, loco. department; Mr. J G. Griffiths, permanent way; and Mr. Albert Powell also paid tribute. The latter said that Mr. Aldridge was not only a man, but a gentleman." Mr. John Griffiths, loco. department, also spoke. Mr. Aldridge, acknowledging, mentioned that during the time he had been at Llan- dovery the wages bill had gone up ten times, and the members of the staff had doubled. The short down platform which was there when he came had been made a very long one. He was greatly touched at the kindness which had been shewn him during the time he had been a resident of the town by the staff and the general public. His wife joined him in thanking them all, (Applause).
1 Llandovery Wedding. I A pretty wedding, and one in which mote than usual interest was taken, as it was the first to be celebrated in the ancient Church of Llanfair-ar.-y-bryn since its restoration, has just been solemnised. The Vicar, the Rev. D. Edmondes-Owen, officiated. The con- tracting parties were Miss Eva Williams, younger daughter of Mrs. Williams, and bhe late ex-Sergt. Williams, of the White Hart Hotel, and ex-Inspector Thomas Williams, son of Inspector T. Williams, Clynderwen, Whitland. The bride, who was tastefully dressed in white silk crepe-de-Chine, trimmed with mother of pearls, and large white pic- ture hat to match, was gven away by her mother. The bridesmaid, Miss Millie Gravelle, Burry Port, was attired in pink crepe-de-Chine, with pink hat to match, and carried a bouquet of white roses. The best man was Mr. Howell M. Williams (brother of bride). The bridegroom has only recently been demobilised after 31 years' strenuous service with the R.F .A. in France. The wedding breakfast was partaken of at the White Hall Hotel. The guests included the Vicar, the Rev. D. Edmondes-Owen; Inspector Williams (bridegroom's father) Messrs. G. G. Wil- liams and H.
