LLANSPYDDID. Gunner James Jones, sen of Mr and Mrs David Jones, Llanspvddid farm. came home for a week's furlough, prior to his going to France. His friend and neiglifotir, rather hurriedly on Mcnday decided that he Iioul-Li iiot return to his regiment foefore a presentation was made to him. The Vicar promptly procured an exceedingly pretty wristlet watch, and called a meeting of friends for 2 o'clock, before he left by the 5 o'clock train for Portsmouth, when the following assembled at the lio(i,o, viz.. Rev. Thomas Griffiths (vicar, who took the chair), Mrs Griffiths. Mr Morgan and Miss Griffiths (Garngalad), Mr Davies, Mr Edwin Davies, and the Mi.-ses Davies (Penwcrn). Mr Wm. Jones and the Misses Jones (Penishapentre). Mr Tho-Tames (Dan- spvddidi and others. Mr Griffiths spoke of the good qualities of Gunner Jones as a friend and neighbour, and of the great respect in which he is held by them all. He was followed in turn by Mr Morgan, Mr Davies, Mr Edwin Davies and Mr Wm. Jones. All the speakers dwelt upon the popularity cf Gunner Jones in the same strain, wishing him God-speed and a quick return home after, ictory, in which all present concurred, Mrs Griffiths (the Vicarage) made the presentation to Gunner Jones, who suitably returned thanks for the gift. The father most humorously also spoke on be- half of his son. Mr and Mrs Probert, C'ilwfcj'bart. did*not widi to deprive the little children of Llanspvddid Council School of their annual treat this year on account of the war, but rather desired to satisfy the little ones, who had been looking forward to this treat for many weeks, even months, but gave them a war tea on Saturday afternoon last-, which greatly delighted them. Mrs Probert, with her usual forethought and kindne-s, ask- ed a number of friends to join them. After en,ioying the tea. the children retired to the adjoining room, where an excellent impromptu concert was got up by tl\(>heoa.¡ln;¡i-;tres, (Mis* Gane), who herself gave a splendid recitation. Mrs Price, the other teachcr, was unavoidably absent. The children displayed a marked ability in their recitations and songs, particularly the daughters of Mr Probert. who showed great proficiency in pianoforte playing, which were applauded bv an ap- preciative audience. The concert was finished with the singing of the National Anthem. The greatest at- traction of all was. the Christmas Tree which was laden with useful and suitable presents to all the. children, some sixty in number. Mr Probert. one of the manag- ers of the school gave each child a 1918 penny as he left, the hou-e, after ending a pleasant. afternoon's gathering. Mr Griffiths, the vicar of the parish, in a felicitous manner, proposed a hearty vote of thanks to the donors, which was pleasantly seconded by the Rev. Thos. Michael, vicar of Llanilltyd, and Mr Probert suitably replied on behalf of his wife and himself.
