LLANGORSE. I apper J. H. Williams, R.E., Safaddan, is home on his fourth leave from France. Sapper Williams joined up at the outbreak of war and has been in active ser- vice since. We regret it is a. fad home-coming for him this time, he having arrived just in time to attend the funeral of his aged mother, Mrs Williams, The Capel. We regret to record the death of Mrs Margaret Wil- liams, Capel Farm, who passed peacefully away on Friday. The deceased lady had attained the age of 83. She was well-known in the neighbour- hood, having resided at the Capel for 25 years. The interment. took place at Llanfihangel burial ground on Wednesday afternoon. A quiet military marriage was solemnised at Camel- ford, Cornwall, on the 7th inst., the contracting parties being Miss Millicent Smale (Tintagel, of the W.A.A.C., who has been on active service in France) and Sgt. W. J. Beedle Price (only son of Mr and .Mrs Thomas Price, Fair View). Sergeant and Mrs Price are spending the remainder cf their leave at Llangorse, from whence Mrs Price returns to duties in London and Sgt. Price again to France. On Monday, 4th inst., at 2.30 in the afternoon, a highly instructive lecture and cookery demonstration was given in Llangorse schoolroom by Miss Caladine, who is touring for the Breconshire Committee (Minis- try of Food) to give a series of demonstrations in food economy, Tnrt" was an enthusiastic assembly of ladies who thoroughly appreciated Miss Catadine's helpful hints in the problem of house-keeping in these times. Special attention was given to the use of potatoes to advantage. Several dishes were demonstrated, and they turned out very palatable. Miss D. Williams, Tyllyn, and Miss M. Price, Ca6tle Shop, kindly assisted Miss Caladinein the practical work of the afternoon. On Wednesday, 20th ult., a public meeting was held in Llangorse schoolroom, under the auspices of the Talgarth Branch of the Brecon and Radnor Farmers' Union. The object was to enrol more Llangorse mem- bers in the I nion. The meeting was well attended by farmers from the surrounding district. The chair was taken by Mr J. Lewis, Pendre, and the speaker., who addressed the gathering, were Mr R. Prosser, B Sc Brecon, Mr J W. Jones, Hay, Mr T. Davies, Talgarth, and Mr J. T. Bouchcr, Talgarth, all of whom thorough- ly explained the advantages of belonging to the Union. At the close the usual vote-s of thanks were accorded the chairman and speakers. We congratulate Mr l. Marsden Thomas. The Villa, on his recent success in passing an examination to gain admittance into the photographic section of the Rova! Flying Corps. He is now stationed at Headquarters. .Ifr Ihomas is very well-known in this neighbourhood as a successful photographer, he having ,studied the subject for the last 15 years, chiefly specialising in landscape photography. It will be remembered Pte a Thomas yotunteered his "eniee;¡ for his country at   war, ?"' on ??' ?asion. ¡nee, but his health hi aVd n' ot ? hitherto aUowed him to Y)a? the ?I«Ut?t l?oard, but recently it had improved to « i l degree that ,1H was able to be c-t service. We ihfearti? ly wish him further succeM in his patriotic en- deavours.
