ASTERISKS. Thirteen years ago on Thursday the Loughor railway disaster took place. < There is a general feeling at the front that the war will be over this side of Christmas. So mote it be. Sergt. Ivor Rees, V.C., has had a further extension of leave, and will not return to duty until Tuesday. The import trade of Burry Port is booming. A case of measles has just been imported from Ponthenry. At Narberth the price of milk is to be increased from 4d. to 5d. a quart. At Llanelly ———— please don't mention it. There are nearly 50 acres of open spaces in Llanelly, owned by the Corporation. The largest, of course, is Pare Howard, which is over 24 acres in extent. tt 0 What about the proposed technical school for LIanelly P Have the Educa- tion Committee forgotten all about the generous offer of the late Mr. Beaumont Thomas ? Damsonf are now being sold in South Wales at three-halfpence per pound.They are the last of the plums which have been in remarkable abundance. Blackberries too, have been a record crop this year. The news of the tragic death of Lieut. Cyril Lewis came as a painful shock to his native town. Only on Tuesday he was home among us, in splendid health and spirits. This morning he was brought back to Llanclly-in his coffin. 0 A correspondent writes suggesting that the Amateur Operatic Society should be re-formed to produce, say, "The Mikado" for local charities. This is an excellent idea and we hope that Mr. Percy Rees and his friends will be able to act upcn it. • • •* A writer in a London magazine uses up a fin*; lot, oi adjectives in describing the beauties of Welsh rivers. But will it be believed, he does'nt even mention the Lliedi! Evidently our Saxon friend has'llt seen this noble stream when there's water in it. < < < Master Stafford Howard shared with "Marged Fach" the honours of the Pwll Celebrations on Saturday. The little gentleman received the salute of the Y.C. with a. composure that even that fine old veteran, Sir James Hills Johnes could not have improved upon. Sarcastic comment is made in Carmar- then -on the shabby treatment meted cut to a down-line hero. At Llanelly, Sergt. Ivor Rees comes in for a snug £ '300. at Carmarthen, another brilliant soldier is presented with the freedom of the borough Much good may it 110 him. He was sitting in the Chamber of Com- meree the other evening grousing about the war, the weather and the taxes—es- pecially the taxes. "They are taxing everything these days," he complained. "Yes, chipped in one of his listeners, "they will be taxing your memory soon." The lesson for the afternoon was the Prodigal Son, and the teacher explained the old story to her little class. "And the father of the prodigal son fell on his neck and wept." "Now," she went on, I why did he weep P" Tommy? "I bet you'd weep, too, if you fell on your neck." Mr. David Rhys, barrister-at-law,-a former member of the staff of the Inter- mediate School, is now discharging im- portant duties in North Wales in connec- tion with war allowances. He is one of the Commissioners appointed by the Gov- a,,)pol n- L-e d by the Gov- ernment to investigate cases of hardship arising out of civil liabilities of men wha have joined the Forces. < < "Can I see the lady of the house ?"* asked the canvasser. "Yes, you can." "Well, madam," he went or, "I am sel- I ling a can-opener which cannot be beaten. It opens any can that can be opened by a can-opener, and any can can be opened by j this can-opener that can be opened by any can-opener if you can show me a can, I can-. But the door had shut.
