Concluding the let- ter stated that they should like to know the opinion of the Council. Dr. Williams: The fact of the matter is they are all old 'fogies" and they want to shelve their responsibility. But what better can you expect from the Car- marthen Rural District, Council ? Mr. W. D. Jenkins: They are not in accordance with the spirit of the times. The letter was left on the table.

< > BlT U A K Y rl t MISS EDWARDS, ROSE HILL. It is with much regret we record the death of a member of an old Llanelly family in the person of Miss Margaret Edwards, daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. George Edwards, of Penywern, near Llanelly, and sister of the late Mrs Rees, of Rose Hill, formerly of Capel, which occurred after a very brief illness on the 8th inst, at the age of 79 years. The deceased had made her home with the Rees family from her youth, and had continued after the death of Mrs. Rees to reside at Rose Hill together with her nephews, amongst whom are Mr. D. G. IItees, Mr. L. Rees, and her grand-niece, Miss Lilian Mathias, to whom she was greatly atached. Miss Edwards had for some years now led a somewhat retired life, but she took a great interest in Capel Als where she was a faithful mem- ber. The interment took place in the Penywern family grave at the Box Cemetery; the funeral at the express wish of the deceased being strictly private.

Htiiig Gossip Fate is still unkind to the "Sospans" who up to the present have lost two points in the Southern League and two iu the Welsh League. ike Uxti.ro list opened with a visit to Ton Pentre, which resulted in a draw. Ün the following Saturday the two teams met again at Halfway, and here once more the visitors took away a point. However, on the following Tues- day the "Sospans" commandeered the two points in the match with Chepstow, but iast Saturday again they were forced to split the points at Barry. There was no gainsaying the fact that the Sc-spans deserved to succeed at Barry on Saturday. They delighted the spec- tators with a fast open game. During the opening stages the "Sospans" got busy and both wings were seen to ad- vantage, but their well placed centres ¡ went a-begging owing to the over-eager- riess of the inside men, who were fre- quently pulled up for offside play. They could do everything but score. After the interval the "Linnets" got busy, and Price, the home wing beat Bailiffe with a very clever shot. On the run of play it was certainly the Sospans who deserved this lead. This reverse warmed their blood and the home net was continually bombarded, but the goalie proved equal to the occasion and effected some wonderful saves. Ten minutes from the end Puyntz equalized for the visitors with a sting- ing shot. The Sospans then made a great rally to try and .score the winning goal, but the home goalie proved a stumbling block in their path. To-day's Match. To-day the "Linnets" play the return match at Halfway, and it is hoped that the home team will "bag" both points which will be required to place them in a favourable position in the Welsh League. The team will be :-GoaI, Bailiffe; backs, James and Blain; halves, Gough, Martin and Norris; forwards, Morris, Rouse, Levi, Poyntz and Payne. T esdays 15 points; Cross Hands 6. The Tuesdays entertained Cross Hands at Stradey on Tuesday and gained an easy victory. From the outset the Tues- days manifested their superiority over the visitors who were penned to their own half up to the interval. Frank Evartts opened the scoring for the home team by sending the ball over the bar, from a mark Tries were then added in quick succession by E. Marsh, W. Bowen, Cliff Thomas and Frank Evans. During the second half the home team took matters easy, and never on, one occasion exerted themselves, the. visitors scoring two tries. At a reception held in the evening the visitors were loud in praise of the sport- ing spirt of their opponents, and ex- pressed their delight with the game. Mr. Llew Williams suitably responded on behalf of the Tuesdays, and s-aid he hoped that the same cordiality would Always exist between the two teams. Roderick's Record. i The Roderick's XI can look back upon I a highly -successful season. Out of 20 matches played, 15 have been won, 4 lost, and 1 drawn. This is certainly a very creditable achievement, taking into consideration the fact that the team I possesses no ground of its own where I practices could be held. and also that this is the first season in which serious I cricket has been played since 1914. In the batting line the highest aver- age was secured by Bob Evans. who com- piled the fine total of 189 in the five matches in which he figured, thus ob- taining an average of 37.8. Seoond ,1!1Ç is taken by T. L, Stewart with 27.2, the following coming next in ) order:—Wm. Williams, 12.8; Dan I Davies, 10.8; T. J. Hopkns, 10.2; Arwyn Davies, 8.6; T. J. Rees, 6.7, and J. T. Nicholas, 6.5. Of the bowlers, Arwyn Davies comes an easy first, having captured 69 wickets at a cost of 288 runs; John Rees coming ¡ next with 58 wickets for 283; whilst T. J. Hopkins, the captain, took 19 for 135. Throughout the season the Roderick men have hit up 1701 runs, the sumber I registered against them being 989, giving an excess of 712 in favour of Roderick's. Next season, with a ground of their own, and a stronger eleven, they hope to do even greater things. RUCBY REFLECTIONS. I The Llanelly R.F.C. gave a welcome helping hand to football down west on Saturday, and, notwithstanding the plucky fight put up by the home team, had no difficuly in bagging 40 points at I their expense. The Scarlets were ac- corded a royal welcome, and gave a spark ling display. Judging by the form dis- played they look like being as formidable I as ever this season. Albert Jenkins lost no time in demon- strating that his foot has lost none of its I old cunning, a feature of the game being the beautiful drop gpal which he landed. We shall probably see "Albert's" boot winning a few matches for the Scarlets again this season. Other scorers on Saturday were Aneurin Thomas, with two tries to his credit, Islwyn Evans, Rev.. J. Stephens, Rev. W. T. Havard, and Edgar Morgan. To-day the Sospans will have to go all the way to secure a victory at Bath. The Somerset men recently brought off a fine achievement by their defeat of Leicester on the latter's ground. They are evi- dently a hot side this season, and it is to be hoped that the tinplaters will not I be caught napping. I' Next Saturday our old friends of .A,ber- tawe will visit Stradey, and a battle I royal is certain to take place. The All Whites will leave no stone unturned tx) i lower the colours of the Beds, whilst on the other hand Dai Hiddlestone and his I men aru determined to maintain the fine record established last season, and may be reckoned upon to extend Swansea to the utmost.. An old Llanelly player in the person of J. 1. Jones, who also assisted Carmar- then Harlequins, will probably give his services fairly regularly to the London Welsh team this season. It will be learnt with general satisfac- tion that Graham Davies and the Rev. W. T. Havard will be able to assist the Scarlets in their first few matches. A standing weakness in the Llanelly Rugby teams in years gone by has been the extreme lightness of their forwards. Almost every team that visited Stradey possessed a pack which outweighed our own by several stone. This was a great drawbaok, especially in the scrums and line outs, w here the heavy and the tall men carried all before them. The pre- senco in the pack of two heavyweights of the stamp of Bobbie Evans and Edgar Morgan should prove of immense value. The New Dock Stars are considering the question of forming a "B" team, and a meeting will be held this afternoon to ) discuss the proposal.

.am HOW IT HAS ARISEN. I | The serious shortage of water in Llan- elly which has compelled the Corporation J to take the drastic step of cutting off the .supply to the works is not difficult to explain. In the first place, the rainfall this year has been far below the average for the last 40 years. To be exact, be- j tween April andAugust only 13.32 inches have been registered, as compared with an average of 21.12 mchcs for the last 38 years. During that long period, only on two occasions has the rainfall been less than this year's, the total for 1887 being j 8.54 inches, and in 1896 it was 10.58 inches. In those years, however, the consump- tion by the works was not nearly what it is to-day, and the population has also largely increased The following figures tell their own tale:— Consumption in 1906 Consumption in 1919 1168 million gins 1637 million gins It becomes necessary to again appeal J to every householder to exercise tho greatest economy in the use of water. An 1 arrangement has been made by which the Rural Council supply about three-quar- i ters of a million gallons a day to help the situation. The consumption per head has already been reduced to 30 gallons per head, but 20 gallons should be ample. Every gallon per head saved represents a total of 50,000 gallons per day. The con- sumption at Cardiff is less than 20 gal- lons per head. Why then, should Llan- elly householders consume 30 gallons in this time of shortage ?
