I Ssnn Feins, Zepps., Fires and Lights. We have read of some fine doings in the Green Isle since Easter, and after a week of bloodshed, incendiarism, demolition and looting comes the grr-tifying intelligence that the re- bellion has been quelled, and doubtless the ring- leaders will in due course have justice meted out to them. The military and other authorities have acted with a promptitude that does them infinite credit, and if the visitors in Zeppelins had been similarly dealt with, dwellers on our coasts would have leso; reason to complain. In dealing with the subject of fires, I have a word of caution for many who have garden plots in and around Abergavenny. The waste material is piled up during the day and set on fire. A few days ago I noticed some such piles smouldering and smoking, and the thought struck me that as the night advanced some very considerable bonfires might be on view. The streets are dark. the houses are dark, and a good many of us go to bed in the dark. in obedience to the order lights out As the object is to thwart any aircraft" that might pay this district a visit, I think it would be advisable to do all the rubbish burning during the day and leave nothing to chance then the dwellers in this "sylvan retreat could not be accused of drawing attraction." COMPLAINTS. (Tune Auld lang syne.") Tlie cuckoo sings his cheery song 111 places near and far, But really that is no excuse For keeping back the tar." The dust gets up by leaps and bounds, No sooner up than down, In rural walk or cotlntry bne And also in the town. And Dusty Boh makes this complaint, He scarce can venture out The M.C.C. has promised much, Which, up to now, is nowt." And Dusty Bob "vill be the first To sound a note of praise If those who now possess the means Will come and mend our ways." Chorus For auld lang syne (after each verse). \bt-Ew1 Un:" DUSTY BOB.
