LLANDEWY. It is reported that Pte. Bob Phillips, only son of Mr and Mrs John Phillips,, Sunnybank, has been wounded in action, but it is thought not seriously. We regret to report the death in action of Pte. John Thomas, Lst Batt., Welsh Guards, third son of Mr W. Thomas, Llandewy Hall. Letters from the Captain and Chaplain speak of his great devotion to duty, and his cheerfulness under the most trying circumstances. Pte. J. Thomas joined the forces in June, 1916, and, being of fine physique, was able to join the Welsh Guards. It was doutful for a short time whether he or his brother would go. but John settled the matter by expressing his willingness to join up. Much sym- pathy is felt in the parish for Mr Thomas and family at the loss of a gallant son.
NEWBRIDGE-ON-WYE. The children of the Church of England school-, who recently collected money on behalf of the funds of the British Sailors' Society, have received their medals and presents.

BLEDDFA. Pentrylan P.M. Church held their annual camp-meet- ing on the 19th inst. The speakers were the Rev. E. W. Ramm and Mr Joseph Wilding. Miss Dorry Allcock played on the organ in the afternoon, and Miss Hope in the evening. The attendance was good, attentive and inspiring. Mr Ramm expressed thanks, for the use of the field, to Mr Powell, Noyadd. Bleddfa is a place of attraction, owing to Govern- men work in a large fall of timber. It resembles on a smaller scale those days when the Birmingham water pipe was put in. viz., Sunday work. There are scores of loads of hay fairly rotting on the ground in the district.
LLANBISTER. We regret to learn that Pte. J. Thomas, of the Welsh Guards, son of Mr W. Thomas, Llandewy Hall (formerly of Bronllys, in this parish) has fallen in ac- tion, and, also, Pte.

Whist-drives and concerts have been frequent at the Auxiliary Hospitals, apd the kindness of those who ar- range and contribute to these events is immensely ap- preciated by the gallant fellows who find a temporary home at the Spa. Mrs Norton and her co-workers have arranged a very fine concert for next Wednesday evening on behalf of the funds of the Nursing Association. The concert and the object deserve every support. Full particulars are announced in our advertising columns. Mr Gus Oliver, Temple Street, who came over with the Canadians, ha.s been wounded in France, and is now in hospital in this country. The man who was next to Wm in the ranks was killed, and Oliver was wounded with shrapnel in both legs. Pte.

KNIGHTON. Rev. T. Rhys Broad, pastor of Victoria Rozid Bap- tist Church, returned to the town on Tuesday, after having spent four months as chaplain to the troops in France. The rev. gentleman looks "flit and well," and appears none the worse for the change. During his ab. sence he has managed to address a weekly letter to his congergation at home, which has been read at the public services on Sundays. Anniversary services were held, in connection with the Norton Street Baptist Church, on Sunday, when the Rev. A. Leitch, of Ackhill Baptist Church, preached excellent sermons to large congregations.
