A Custom House Bank Idyll
A Custom House Bank Idyll W TALES OF ASSAULT AND BATTERY. I Sarah Lewis, Union Cottage, at the Police Court, summoned Haydn Bennett, Custom House Bank, for assault, and Haydn Bennett preferred a charge of assault against the plamtiif and 1argaret Ann Hopkins, Custom House Bank. Mr. Mervyn Paton appeared for Bennett, and Mr. Ludford was on the other side. Sarah Lewis said that- on November 23rd. Bennett came to the house and ac- cused her of making accusation against another woman, and he assaulted her. She had a terrible black eye which kept her from work for a fortnight. It was evident that Bennett had been drinking. She was a total abstainer. Cross-examined: She did not have a drop of drink herself, and she did not pick up a poker. The man was like a mad dog about the place. M. A. Hopkins, wife of David Hopkins a soldier in the South Wales Borderers, stated that she heard a scream and went to the assistance of her sister, but was knocked down by Bennett and kicked. Cross-examined: She was perfectly sober. So far she had not taken any action against Bennett. P.C. Davies said that when he saw Mrs. Lewis she was very dazed and her right eve was discoloured. Mr. Paton stated that. his instructions were that the woman was very drunk. and that this accounted for her dazed condition. The evidence for the defence would he that the injuries were caused by the fall. Haydn Bennett stated that he called at the house of Mrs. Lewis, who picked up a poker and threatened to hit him. She then picked up a basin which missed him and hit her own husband. Mr Lewis told his wife that she had better go and face the thing out with a view to clear- ing up the trouble, and this was agreed to. At the house of Mrs. Lewis he was struck bv Mrs. Lewis, and Mrs. Hopkins scratched his face. He had eleven scratches on one side of his face. Both of the women were drunk, and on going out of the house they fell. Cross-examined The two women were too drunk to see him, and could not walk alone. He heard the evidence of the con- stable who said the woinan was dazed. Bennett: I do not know what dazed means. Mr. Ludford: A woman can he dazed when she is knocked about by a brute. Bennett: I did not have a chance to hit the woman. Helen Nurse said she went to clear herself because Mrs. Lewis was making accusations against Bennett and herself. Mrs. Lewis tried to hit Bennett with a poker, and her husband interfered. Mrs. Lewis was entirely to blame for the trouble. Wm. John Thomas gave similar evidence. The summons against Bennett was dis- missed. and it was agreed to withdraw the other charges. -r-

Little Incidents of Everyday
Little Incidents of Everyday CAMEOS OF LLANELLY. j No. 1.—In these dark, dull days, blood red horror causes us to shudder as we imagine the chaos consequent upon War. Our thoughts are across the water is France or Palestine with our soldier chums. In imagination, we stand be- side thm waiting for the signal to go over tiie parapet into that Hell called "No man's land," and beyond; some- times wishing that our bodies could re- ceive the shrapnel which wounds or kills those who are very dear to us. Suspense is the awful thing Llanelly folk fear-a mighty terrific monster that grips our hearts. Then sometimes the grip relaxes and life and love are bright again. At others, the postman who has called every morning for years leaves a message* which causes faces to blanch and familiar forms cannot be descried through the mist of tears. The postman had left such a message in a quiet bye street, and I stood in a little homely parlour where a dear old lady sat with a photograph of a soldier boy in her hand. He had paid the price of a great heroic act with his life, and his old grandmother with tear- dimmed eyes was gazing at the smiling face of her favourite grandson. I have seen many beautiful faces, some glorious- ly lovely, some tenderly pathetic in human life, or shining from the original canvasses of master artists, such as Leonardo de Vinci's "Madonna," or the lovely faces in Luini's "Nativity," or Botticeli's "Madonna and child," but never have I seen a more lovely face than that of a lonely old grandmother as she gazed into the face of her lost soldier boy in a quiet bye-street of Llanelly. No. 2.—Hurrying homewards past the Town Hall as the day was fading into twilight and the bright lights of passing tramcars began to twinkle, I knocked up against a little ragged newspaper boy, and upon apologizing, I found the lad was sobbing bitterly. He had only one paper left, and I bought it, at the same time asking him to tell me his trouble. "Its in the paper Mister," he said, "my big brother Tom has been killed, and he was the only one as was kind to me. He's dead, sir, Oh Gawd," he piteously cried. The tears ran down his dirty cheeks, rivulets trickling into the great river of tears which has flowed through Llanelly since War began, through her terraces, crescents and bye-streets and alley ways. Poor little chap, how he suffered, "Oh Gawd" was theolangiiage of his despair, the cry of a sorely stricken little heart. The sight of that grief stricken lad made me cry "Oh God wipe the tears from such sad reddened eyes, and when Right has been justified give us Peace." °
Clarke's the Man.
Clarke's the Man. Don't fail to visit Llanelly Cinema, Stepney street, to-day, to see the sen- sational drama "Little Miss Somebody," with beautiful Violet Meserean leading. It is one of the most lovely photo plays ever screened. From Monday to Wednes- day, the management have secured a charming production entitled "The Blue Streak." It is a most attractive play, and will be liked. The seventh episode of "The Girl from Frisco," will appear, "The Oil Field Plot," and we again see this wonderful girl perform daring feats that eatiic one to hold one's breath. From Thursday to Saturday, a super production, "The Mutiny of the Elden Besse," will bo screened. It is difficult describe this play in the space at our disposal, and our advice is, go and see it [I personally. Tbe whole composes a real good programme that will prove really enjoyable in this luxurious warm Hall. -I!iI
A Very Satisfactory Report
A Very Satisfactory Report -0 PRAISE FOR THE GIRLS COUNTY SCHOOL. "A very satisfactory report" was the comment of the Intermediate Governors on Thursday when the appended report of the Assistant Inspector of the Central Welsh Board, on the girls school was read The number of pupils in school is 379, 316 being the corresponding figure in the previous school year. This is a very notable increase. Including the Head Mistress there are 14 members on the staff, and an application has been made for the appointment of two additional members, one each on the Arts and Science sides respectively. Even thus the r proportion of pupils to Mistresses will be 1 to 23. The school is, of course, greatly overcrowded. The laboratory even has to be used by two classes at onoe. The room, which is betweea the boys' and girls' premises, and was formerly occu- pied by the boys, is now used by the girls. In the 71th form there are eight girls followiTp; an advanced Science course. One former pupil, Olwen Howell, recently passed the 1st M.B. examination of the University of London, and another, Mildred Jones, has entered the University College at Cardiff, as a Science student. She obtained in the Board's Examination distinction in English, French, Chemistry and Mathematics, including the calculus. She also went through an elementary course in Light. Difficulties have, how- ever, arisen with the College authorities as to her pursuance of an honours course in Chemistry, owing to the lack apparent- ly of a preceding course in Physics. The lady doctor who superintends the physical exercises hate been appointed Medical Offi- cer of Health to a Northern Borough. A new physical mistress has been appointed ) who was trained at Liverpool Physical College. The Mayor: It is a very satisfactory report.
It is an interesting fact, says Dyfed, that the most popular Welsh hymnol- ogists were born and bred in Carmarthen- shire. Dyfed naturally attributes the fact to the influence of the Methodist re- vival on that part of the country.

Intermediate School. MEETING OF GOVERNORS. A meeting of the Governors of the Intermediate school was held on Thurs- day when the Mayor (Aid. D. James Davies) presided. Vote of condolence. Before commencing the business, the Mavor moved a vote of condoleiitv with Mr J. L. Thomas in the dea.th of his son, and the motion was passed in silence. New Appointments. The Headmaster (Mr. G. J. 'iliomas, M.A.) reported that he had appointed Mr Idris Roberts as Science Master at 1:170 a year. Mr. Roberts had not obtained his degree, but- this was the bc-s-o arrange- ment he (Mr. Thomas) could make. After having made the appointment he received an application from a London young lady who had a degree, but she would not ac- capt a-lower salary than £ 200. The Mayor said it was important that the school should have a strong science man, and he suggested that the Master should be authorised to offer a higher salary. The Headmaster said he did not need aaother Science master at present. He also reported that Mr. Lewis Griffiths. had been appointed as history ir: tSter. The Headmistress (Miss C. Davies. M.A.) reported that she had appointed Miss M. TT:rrir- a* Science teacher. Gift fcr the Library. The Deputy Ciork Dfr, reported that Mr. G. F. Blake had presented to the library of the Boys" School fifty hooks in memory of his son, the late Lieut. Cyril Blake. 0'1, the motion of the Mayor, seconded by Mr. TV. E. Clement, it was decided to thank the donor for his gift. Bitter Disappointment. The Deputy Clerk reported that Mr. Owen Edwards, H.M. Inspector, when asked to confer with the head-teachers with a view cr increasing the staff and complying with the requirements of tha Board of Education for teaching of ad- vanced technical courses, had written the following reply;—"I have already con- ferred. with th", Headmaster and Head- mistress of the Llanelly Schools about the raasons for the inability of the Board to pay grants to their schools for this year. I shall visit the schools again with a view to next year's prospects, and shall be de- lighted to meet the governors when I come. The Mayor It is very disappointing to me that this. school is not recognized for advanced technical courses because we are being pressed by the Board to es- tablish a technical college at Llanelly • The Headmaster: That may be the reason why they have refused. The Mayor: This is certainly no en- couragement- when we have facilities at least equal to school at which the grant is allowed. I move that the clerk be authorised to send a strong protest to Mr. Owen Edwards. Mr. Clement seconded the motion, wkieh was agreed to. Application for increase of Salary.^ An application was received trcm the teaching staff at the Evening Technical Classes for the same scale of payment as that paid in Glamorganshire. It was decided to recommend to the County Committee that the application he acceded to.
