BURRY PORT. It has been decided to plant trees in the Coronation Park. —o— The series of Penny Readings held during the winter months, in aid of the Parish Hall Funds, have proved a financial success. —o— The amount. of the easements payable per annum by the Urban District Council is zE66 16s., whilst the easements receivable amount to Z21 9s. -0- It will be well to state, for the guidance of our readers, that the rateable value of the urban area is £ 16,567 17s. 6d., and the assess- able value £13,319 16s. 10bd. -0- The building trade is looking up. Several dwelling-houses and villas are to be erected. -0- Through the generosity of the committee, the children who took part in the series of Penny Readings held at the Parish Hall during the winter months were entertained to tea on Monday evening. As the clock chimed four the children sat down to a sumptuous tea, to which ample justice was done. The tables were presided over by the Misses Mc- Dowall, Presidee, L. Gunter, A. M. Howell, and Madge Evans, whilst others who ren- dered valuable assistance were Messrs. Jas. McDowall, R .G. Thomas, and the Rev. I. H. Williams. After tea, games of various kinds were indulged in, and the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. It must be stated that through the instrumentality of Mr. James McDowall this event, and also the series of Penny Readings held throughout the winter months, were a. splendid success. At the close the Rev. 1. Harries Williams, in a jovial speech, most cordially thanked the ladies for their kind help, and he wished to read the note which lie hadiust. received at the door. It road thus:— There are many people in Burry Port, Some are long, and some are short; Some are merry, and some are sad; Some are good, and some are bad. Mr. McDowall is good and long: Not very stout, but very strong; Very happy and very free, And very fond of a sup of tea. Mr. McDowall is not too tall To come inside the Parish Hall: At Penny Readings he is full of smiles— You can hear him laugh for many miles. Mr. McDowall will never grow old; His heart, is warm—it will never grow cold: His kindness and goodness can have no end: He is the children's teacher, and the child- I ren's friend. If you want to grow up, you must not grow down: If you want to smile, you must not frown: So come next year, one and all, To the Penny Readings in the Parish Hall. The enjoyable evening was closed amidst roars of laughter. On Sunday next the half-yearly services in connection with Jerusalem Welsh Congrega- tional Chapel will be held. -0-- A children's service was held at St. Mary's Church on Sunday last, when there whs a large congregation. The Rev. I. Harries Wil- liams delivered a very appropriate address. Some of the chief features were the solos nicely sung by Miss Maud Lewis and Master Havard Thomas and the selections played by the organist Mr. W. T. Richards.

Council were held at Somerset House. There were present Messrs. John Leyshon, R. G. Thomas, Thomas Beynon, W. V. Jones, Dr J. H. Williams, David Evans, Thos. Hughes, James McDowall, together with the Rate Col- lector (Mr. W. R. Leyshon), th«! Surveyor and Sanitary Inspector (Mr. A. J. Oburn), and the j Clerk (Mr. William Howelli. > FINANCE COMMITTEE, I Mr. W. V. Jones presided. Accounts. I lire accounts were examined and certified for payment. An account of 5s. from the South Wales Press Co., Llanelly, for printing done in the year 1905, in connection with the Gas Bill, created much discussion as to whe- ther it was legal to pass the account for pay- ment The Clerk intimated that the Council were not legally responsible, but were morally obligated. Ultimately it was resolved to cer- tify the account for payment, and. the Clerk was instructed to notify the Company to be more up-to-date in future. The Chairman informed the meeting that he had examined the wages book and found if: correct. I Horses, I The Surveyor reported, in accordance with a previous resolution, that he had gone into the fiurø" relating tn the up-keep of the I Council's horses, and found that the cost I was 13s. 6d. per week per horse. In his esti- I mate he had provided 15s. per week.—The re- port was considered satisfactory. Collector's Report. I The Collector reported That the amount to be collected was £ 1292 Is. IOd, The amount already received was £ 127 6s. gel, The Collec- tor was requested to deposit the same in the Bank as soon as possible. The report was adopted. Application. I The Collector applied for an increase In salary. He pointed out that he had held the office of collector since the formation of the Council, during which time the work had considerably increased. He also stated that in other towns the collectors were better paid and lie hoped the Council would give his ap- plication careful consideration. Mr. R. G. Thomas: As we are the minority of the Council I think it, would be well to de- fer the consideration of this important ques- -?tilig. I iiiiist ac[iiiit tion until the next meeting. I must admit that there is a lot of work attached to the office of Rate Collector. I beg to propose that the matter be deferred, and in the mean- time the. Clerk might make enquiries from other councils as to the salaries paid to rate collectors. Mr.- James McDowall seconded, and it was carried. Ordering of Goods. I The Chairman brought forward the question of ordering goods. It had been the custom, he said, thai when it was necessary to order goods for the Surveyor's department, that the Surveyor made a requisition, a.nd forwar- ded the same to the Clerk, who was the only person authorised to take charge of the order book. This method was very unsatisfactory, and caused much inconvenience. Dr. J. H. Williams: But: this method is car- ried on in accordance with the auditor's in- structions. I know that our previous sur- veyor held the order book, and issued orders for goods for his department, but the auditor did not allow that, and the book had to be handed over to the Clerk. The Surveyor: Yes, that, may be. The Council passed resolution to the effect that the Clerk shall be the only authorised per- son to order goods. If you pass a resolution here, to-night authorising me to order goods, then the auditor will have no objection. Dr. J. II. Williams: If that is so, I beg to move that the Surveyor he authorised to order goods when required. Mr. John Leyshon seconded, and it was car- ried. Ambulance Class. Mr R. (j. Thomas moved that art application he made to the County Authority for the I holding of an ambulance class at Burrv Port. Mr. John Leyshon seconded, and it was carrier]. J [ HIGHWAY COMMITTEE. I Mr. John Leyshon in the chair. Curbing and Channelling. The Surveyor reported that he had about 114 yards of curbing and channelling to do at New Street and Elkin.gton Road. A tetter was read from Mr. William Davies, New Street, complaining of the action of the Council -in placing curb stones in front of his premises which had been removed from other parts of the street owing to their roughness. The Surveyor csaid that he ordered the st-ones to be laid. It was a temporary job. He had no other material to do the work with; therefore, they must be content. In his opinion there was nothing to complain. about, A long discussion followed with regard to the laying of new curbing. Dr. J. H. Wil- that the Cle-rk should suitably reply to Mr. Davies, and point out that as the supply of curb stones had heen ,exhausted. and if lie desired that those already laid should be replaced by new nnes. he could have the same done at his own cost. M r. James McDowall seconded, and it was carried. Coronation Park. Dr. J. II. Willi fliif asked when it was likely that some of the stones would be removed from near the Coronation Park. It was really an -eye-sore to the public. He would like- to know if it had been decided to use that spot as a general dUlllping ground. In reply the Surveyor .said that the ballast complained of .would be removed as soon as the Acliddu Isaf drainage scheme was com- menced. Mr. J allies McDowall: I think that there should be a little improvement- and it could be dune there at very low cost. If a few trees were planted there, they would improve the Coronation Park and its surroundings a great deal. It was resolved to improve the spot com- plained of. j -0- A 1- 1 r SANITARY COMMITTEE.

TRIMSARAN. I The young people are looking forward with pleasure towards the sports, singing and tim- bering competitions, which will be held on Saturday, July 3rd, and the Fair on the fol- lowing Monday. -0- The members of Llandurry Church went in large numbers to join in the: singing festival of St. David's Dioces held at St. Clears. -u- The monthly meeting of delegates of the Anthracite Association was held at Swansea on Saturday. Mr. J. D. Morgan, the agent, said that with regard to the eight hours question it had been asked what would be the position of the men employed at non- associated collieries. He held the opinion that it would be advisable! for the men at non-associated collieries to keep on working, as in that case they would be able to give financial assistance to those who were out, and also the burden on the Federation would be lighter. However, should the 20th rule be put into operation, it would mean that all the miners of the United Kingdom would come out on strike. In that case proper in- structions would be issued by the South Wales Executive Council to tender notices. The non-associated collieries, in any ease, could not come out until the end of July. However, it was his hope, as it was his belief, that a way would be found to avoid a strike. England had 2,406,746 trade unionists at the end of 1907. -0- The Overseers publish ownership port ion of register. From June 20th to July 20th all steps should be taken to get owners to make claims, which must be sent in not later than July 20th. Total electorate of the United Kingdom is 7.514,481.

I KIDWELLY, I LOCAL SUCCESS. We are very pleased to learn of the success I of Mr. Evan Davies, smith with Mr. David Rees, Park Forge, in passing the examination of the Registered Society of Shoeing Srfritbs. Mr. Davies, who is a native of Llanstephan, has been with Mr. Rees at Kidwelly for some six years, and last week he took tin: first prize at the Hantymoel Horse Show in the shoeing competition, against some of the champions of Glamorganshire. Mr. T. Rogers, son of our esteemed towns. man, Mr. John Rogers, is just now meeting with much success as a "handcuff king" with Messrs. Haggjar's bioscope show. At Carmarthen, on Friday last, he released him- self from three pairs of police bracelets in 1 minute 52 seconds. PARISH CHURCH. It has been found necessary to keep the j main gateway to the Churchyard locked, owing to the very small children who enter that way and make the Churchyard their play- ground, and do mischief there. The west gate is always open during- the day. The scheme for the better lighting of the church is well in hand. The committee held a meet- ing in the Parish Room on Friday last, and ) went. through a lot of good work. Plans of the church and its precincts were produced i by the secretary, Mr J. Morgan, and the posi- tions of the proposed new lights were fixed. It was also decided to light up the Parish Room. The principal acetylene gas com- j panies in the country are now tendering for the work. I LABOUR. j I Mr. Ben Tillet, the well-known Labour j | leader and secretary of the Dockers' Union, j visited Kidwelly on Saturday, and addressed a large meeting of men at the Town Hall. Councillor David Rowlands presided. Messrs William Pugh and D. G. Griffiths, Llanelly, were also present and spoke. u I TOWN COUNCIL. I A special meeting of the Kidwelly Town I Council was held last week, the Mayor (Mr. D. G. Anthony) presiding'. The principal business was the consideration of the pro- posed improvements, widening, etc., of Kid' w?lly Town Bridge. It was resolved to try to come to terms with the County Council, whereby that body would, take over the bridge.—Mr. W. D. James, who will next month take up an auctioneer's licence, ap- plied for the use of the Market Place as a sales-room. The application was granted, subject to the arrangement of terms. -0- S. L. Gravelle, sculptor, Burry Port, has re- cently opened a branch at Causeway Street, I Kidwelly, near the Town Hall. Particulars supplied on application to the above, or to Albert Jenkins, Bryn Morfa. I DESERTERS. I On Friday, before Mr. Win. Wilkins, ex- mayor, at the Town Hall, James Coxon and Henry Moss were brought up in custody and charged with absenting themselves without leave from the 1st Welsh Regiment, stationed at Pembroke Dock. P.C. D. J. Davies, who captured the defendants, detailed how he saw the two proceeding up Pinged Hill, and how, when he first stopped them, they said that they came from Tenby. He, however, after- wards noticed their military bearing, and followed them,whereupon they took to their heels. He caught them near Tycoch, and again questioned, them, and charged them with being absentees, which they again de- nied. He then asked them to come back with him. Coxon at this became excited, and a struggle ensued. On the advice of the younger I man Moss, however, Coxon became quiet, and both then confessed that they belonged to the 1st Welsh. They were then locked iip.-Afte).- a strong reprimand from the Bench they were. both handed over to the escort that had been sent up from Pembroke Dock to fetch them. -0- CRICKET. On Saturday last Kidwelly were at home to Laugharue, and a most pleasant game was played, resulting in a win for the homesters by 11 runs. Neither of the teams were over- strong.

The match played last, Saturday week on the Pontycocs ground was a most lJnique one in many respects. One of the Burrows XL best batsmen is noted in the town for his ora- torical. powers. He is one. of the fa vuured few who took the privilege of speaking t.o Mr. Sammy Woods's nieüBswhen the Walla- bies played against Wales. His hit for four at the match raised a great cheer, but with the next ball he was clean bowled. The Pont- ycocs wicket-keeper, who had got rid of his ■eoar, was evidently in fine form, for after playing for about a quarter of an hour lie was f advised—" Dod dy got Jan. rhag ofon eeyd di unwyd." -0- ¡ PROPERTY EXCHANGE. At .Carmarthen on Saturday, Pareliwni, a ¡ field of five acres, comprising part of Hollo- way farm, was sold to Mr. J. G. Anthony, Paris 'House, Kidwelly, for £ 350. Mr. An- ¡ thony has now acquired the \v?ule of Hollo- way farm at a Bast of 42890. At the same time and place the little holding, Aqueduct- Faeh, with 2? acres of land, was sold to the tenant, Alr. 'Willi,-tni 'foliii, for £ 290. Glyn I Abbey Mansion, with its 9. acres of land, once the residence of Astley Thompson, Esq., and afterwards occupied by the Benedictine monks, has been sold by private treaty to Mr. David Griffiths.: Pont yeates. -0- FUNERAL. The funeral of the late Mr Thomas Hughes, of the Prince of Wales Inn, Mynyddygarreg, which took place last week, was a. very large one, twenty-seven carriages taking part in the procession. The interment was at Meinc- iau Baptist Chapel Graveyard. Messrs. NA7. Richards and Son were the undertakers.
PONTYEATES. Last Sunday the annual meetings of Naza- reth Congregational Chapel were held, when eloquent sermons were delivered by the Rev. S. Thomas, Llandilo, and the Rev. T. Mor- gans, Pontardulais. A bazaar and eisteddfod will be held at the above place on the 25th and 26th inst. The proceeds will be devoted towards building' a new chapel, which is much needed, as the present edifice is overcrowded. -0- If an enemy tries to invade the Gwendraetli Valley there" will be no need for Territorials, as thei fair sex at Pontyeates and Ponthenry are well up in ariiiis. Two evenings were taken for duelling at Ponthenry last week, and it is rumoured that the fair sex of Pont- yeates will follow suit. On the 26th of June, 1869, the first train of coal was taken down the Burry Port and Gwendraeth Valley Railway. The train was made up of three waggons from Pontyberem and three waggons from Glangwendraeth. Col- liery, Pontyeates. They were piloted by Mr. John Nicholson, one of the present engine- drivers (who was then but a more, youth), and many hope that the same steady driver will be privileged to pilot the first passenger train again, which will be run in the near future.
PEN.YGROES. Anniversary services were held at Calfaria Baptist Chapel on Sunday, which were con- tinued on Monday afternoon and evening, when very powerful and Impressive sermons were delivered by the Rev. Aaron Morgan, of Blaeniyffos, and Rev. Jacob J. Richards, Am lweh. All the meetings were overcrowded. The singing was good, and the collections liberal. The Lord Bishop of St David's administered | the rite of confirmation at Gorslas Church on Sunday evening last, \\hen twenty-six candi- dates were presented. There was a large congregation, and the whole service was of a most impressive character. His Lordship de- livered. a very forcible and,instructive address both in English and Welsh to the newly- confirmed, which was also very much appre- ciated by the large congregation. The musi- cal part of the service was very well rendered under the conductorship of Mr. W. Willi .una, whilst Mr. Erne Morgans very ably presided at the organ. The Rev. Anthony Britten, j vicar, acted as bishop's explain. It is with regret, we have to announce the continued illness of Mr. David Evans, Bryn t Cottage, Gorslas. We all wish him a speedy recovery. The latest passwa.rd at Penygroes is; "Who is the cyclist that. knocked tlin cow down?"

GROVESEND. i "i !
GROVESEND. i We heartily congratulate Arr. William Rogers, Pwll, Llanelly, upon his election to the important position of checkweigher at I these collieries. About two months ago lie was elected by the Ooegnant miners, Maesteg, as checkweigher, out of 99 candidates, hut in consequence of a technicality the appoint- ment had to-be postponed, and, again, out of 60 applicants, he has been elected to his pre- sent position. This speaks well of him and of the confidene,e which the miners repose in hint. We wish him every success, and we feel sure he will give every satisfaction to those whose interests he has at heart and will I' have to watch over.
