I >:< The hills and mountains of Breconshire were capped with snow on Saturday morning. Rifleman W. J. Hendy (Llandovery), after a few davs' sick-leave, returned to the front last week. Llandovery tolls produced, last year, a surplus, after payment of expenses, equivalent to a 2d rate. Heard in Breconshire "Whose funeral is that, Mrs Jones?" "Oh, nobody living here," was the reply. Cynghordy inhabitants collected nearly 1,500 eggs towards the Red Cross 'movement during the past three months. !r Brynmawr Chamber of Trade is making an ef- fort to secure the appointment of a resident inspec- tor under the Shops Act. Llandovery canvassers were quite busy last week- end, especially on Saturday afternoon, when most of the men could be found at home. • Persons on business in Brecon police court were slightly alarmed by the fall of glass from the toot on Friday. Someone must have been telling one! Hon. R. C. Devereux was unable to attend the memorial service at the Priory Church, Brecon, on Friday, to the late Col. Garnons Williams, owing to indisposition. Mr J. Griffiths, L.L.B. has been appointed clerk to the Brynmawr District Education Committee and clerk to the Managers of the Council Schools in succession to Mr John Thomas (resigned). Mr Arthur Gardner (son of Mr H. Gardner, Cwmhach, Glasbury-on-Wye) has enlisted in a. London regiment. Charles, another son of Mi- Gardner, has been in the Army since the war broke out. Mr J. C. Pryse Rice (mayor of Llandovery) an- nounces that £150 15s 4d has been subscribed to the Prince of Wales's Fund, and, during the past year, that a Red Cross hospital has been opened in the town. The following just shows the "pulling" power of the "Express'' :—"Please stop my advertise- ment-I have received sufficient" applications— W.S., Post Office, Llangammarch Wells, Novem- ber 9th, 1915." This "wanted" advt. only ap- peared one week. Brecon can pride itself as having a thorough Welshman as Mayor for the ensuing year. At the police court, on Monday, Mr Jones Powell, solicitor, said Councillor G. T. Jones was a Welshman of Welshmen, and could sentence a prisoner iia an englyn if necessary. "The Queen" Christmas double number will be an absolutely unique production. The proprietors are giving away, with each copy, a beautifully coloured-picture on canvas, "The Foster Mother" (Arthur J. Elsley). Mr Robert Powell, who went out to Egypt and India with the Brecknockshire Territorials as a private, has received a commission. He is the son of a Herefordshire schoolmaster, and is a fine athlete. Builth Wells recruiting canvassers, under Lord Darby's scheme, commenced their somewhat dif- ficult task on Saturday. The business was under- taken with a grave sense of responsibility, and the canvassers were, to say the least, extremely court- eous and tactful, By his excellent kino entertainments at Builth and Llandrindod, Mr G. M. Hand (proprietor) was enabled to hand over C26 7s to the cinema trade fund for the provision of a complete motor ambulance unit. Llandrindod yielded ZCIS, and Builth, £ 8 7s. 4,11 excellent pamphlet on "French Munition Workers' Sacrifices and Aims" by M.

This is the third son Mr and Mrs Hughes have lost in the war. Ano- ther son is now fighting in France, and the fifth is with the Welsh Horse Regiment. —- V Considerable snow fell in various parts of Rad- norshire on Thursday evening, and, on parts of Radnor Forest, it was well over eight inches deep. The fall was also very considerable in Knighton and neighbourhood. Rain predominated at Llandrindod Wells, but, for a little while, there was quite a white coating on the ground.
