I PWLL. J The Rev Hernias Evans, C'wmbwrla, was the I special preacher at the services held in con- I nection with Bethlehem. Baptist Church on Monday last. He preached very powerful sermons to very good audiences.. These ser- vices have been introduced as a special feature in connection with the church in l eu of the annual tea, and the members generally find them far more edifying. The Guardians and Rural Council Election I will tilks place on Monday next at the Coun- cil School. There axe three candidates, viz., Mr. William Bassett, Mr. John Evans, and the Rev. R. Owens. With regard to the latter we are specially asked to make an appeal to the electors not to record their votes in his favour, as he does not desire by any means to contest, the ward. He endeavoured to with- cont.est the Ava rct. draw his nomination, but, ru^fortunately for him, he was too late to do so.
DAFEN. I The annual public tea was held at Maes- cturner Chapel C oil Good Friday last, winch vas highly successful. In the .evening a grand miscellaneous concert \vas held, the Rev. T. R.

Williams, Maescanner, and the Rev. R. Owen, Bethlehem, Pwll, on Sunday last, the former behrg the special preacher at the missionary services held at the latter place of -worship. < Last week we commented that there would he no representative from Berwick hamlet on the next Parish Council. We now learn that Mr. J ames Derrick has withdrawn from the contest in the West fa hamlet, lea v ing Dafen with no member in -either ward. The object, of course, was to avoid the expense of a ballot, but the Dafen district should really have procured one representative We must, nrepare for the next opportunity, 1 hree years hence. The village was prac-tualty deserted oil Monday, the inhabitants having taken the holiday craze with a vengeance. The solem- nity of the surroundings was intensified by the ouietness a It would be sad occurrence without the clang of indus- try at 0)))' l oca l works.. try at our local works, an occasional stoppage bringing it moie prominently to our notice.

LLWYNHENDY AND DISTRICT. I I Mr D. H. Bow en, the head teacher of Bynea School, and his staff, were in a happy mood on Friday night. And no wonder. After weeks of c-areftil preparation, the concert. turned out a huge success in every way. Soar the went through their work with credit to themselves and teachers. There were loud calls for en- cores for almost, every item, but the pro- gramme was too long to allow of any. The cinematograph, manipulated i)y Mr. D. H. Powen, was also thoroughly enjoyed. Mr. T. B. Phillips" accompanied very ably through- out. Mr. D. Harry occupied the chair. The members of Si David's Church spent an enjoyable day on Monday. In the afternoon they sat down to tea, and in the evening a well-arranged miscellaneous programme was gone through.
TRIMSARAN. I Theusnat Good Friday services were held in Llandurry Church. Mr. and Mrs. Graham placed their passenger train at the disposal of the people in the morning" and ev ening, so as to enable those who wished to attend to do &o. "Actions speak louder than words," On Easter Sunday at. Llandurry Church there was a fully choral communion. At Tabernacle half-yearly services were held on Easter Sunday, when powerful ser- mons were delivered by the Revs. I). Jjones, Crynant, a.d M(-)i--g,.),ns, Penygroes.

PONTYBEREM. I A singing festival was held at Caersalem Chapel on Easter Monday, the choir being composed of Caorsaleiu, Capel Sion, and Crwbin chapel choirs, numbering over 400 voices. A trery enjoyable day was spent in sroing through the programme prepared for the occasion. III the morning the Rev George Evans, Pensarn. althuish the attendance at this n-ce:'nfr was very poor, the singing of the choir, under the conductorship of Mr Daniel Jones, was very effective. In the afternoon the children did their part of the programme, the Rev T. W. Morgans, of Crwhin, presiding, and Mr. David Henry, L.T.S.C., conducting. This meeting was by far the best meeting of the day, the chapel being nearly full, and the singing of the diffe- rent hymns excellent. At 6 o'clock the even- ing meeting commenced, Mr. Daniel Jones conducting, and the Rev. G. Evans presiding, in the place of the Rev. Ben Morris, vrlio was unable to attend. The choir was in good form in the evening, and some of the hymns were sung with good effect, the conductor being at his best- The anthem, "Molwch yr Ar- glwydd," was sung with great credit to the conductor and the choir. It was a pity i he chorus, "We never will bow down" (Messiah) was not ready for the occasion. Speeches were delivered during the day by the Rev. Hugh Edwards, Mr. Thomas Thomas, Mr. R. G. Griffiths, and two excellent papers were read by Mr. John Lewis, Crwbin, and Mr. R. Henry. Pontyberem. The accompanists were Mr. W. D.

Benallt: and J. Llewelyn Thomas, Bradford House. Mr. Llewellyn is the only local candidate, He has faithfully represen- ted this section for the last fifteen years on the District Council and Board of Guardians, and Tyeroes electors should make every effort to secure the return of their experienced member. -0- i On Saturday an eisteddfod was held at Moriah Chapel, presided over by the pastor, the Rev.

L1ANDEBIE. LLANDEBIE. The election of District Councillors causes the electors to wakeup onceagaj II. Mr. R. Mathews (schoolmaster) and Mr. A. Williams (ironmonger) held a joint meeting in support of their candidature at the Schoolroom on Wednesday night' of last week. The meeting was well attended, shewing the interest evinced in the contest. Rey. P. Evans (Metho- dist minister) was chosen as chairman, and again proved himself an efficient and capable stearer. Mr. A. Williams was the first to address the meeting, and gave a lengthy, comprehensive, and lucid explanai ion of his aims and public object. He emphasised the j fact of having to pay a road surveyor who had not the abilities and qualifications of an en- gineer, and pointed to some glaring instances f of the ratepayers' money having been squan- dered owing to this lack of ability. Mr. R. Mathews dealt with the water scheme muddle and the system of assessment. He clearly proved the unfairness of the methods adopted at present. Mr. D. L. Thomas moved a reso- lution supporting the candidature of these two [ gentlemen, and urged on all present to do their best to place men of ability to represent their interests. The Rev. C. Evans (Congrega- tional minister) seconded in a few well-chosen remarks. Mr. M. Williams supported, and said that it was time for the ratepayers to wake up, and elect men who could Tfad and write intelligently—men who were not bound to take and believe everything our permanent officials put before and told them. The. reso- lution was put to the meeting and carried unanimously. This is a step in the right direction. Let every ratepayer remember on polling day to ask himself, "Who are the two most capable candidates?" There can only be -olle. which will carry and place at the top of the poll the two candidates run under the aus- -pices of the Ratepayers' Association. -0- A successful competitive meeting was held on Good Friday evening at the Wesfleyan. Chapel. Miss M. A. Evans (Llinos Araul) won the open solo competition at Liangadock on Good Friday, out of nine competitors. Drunkenness and indecency are fast h- coming a grave menace in this district. Drun- ken men in gangs are parading our roads, and proving a nuisance by their indecent he- haviour and profane language. They revel in insulting remarks to the fairer sex. It will be well for the ladies to take their courage in both hands, and summon, these ruffians as a protection, against these unprovoked attacks. >-

POLICE ON ThE BALL. I
POLICE ON ThE BALL. I INTERESTING CHARITY MATCH AT I STRADEY. A large crowd, witnessed the charity match in aid of the Llaneliy Hospital, between the Llanelly Police and Swansea Police, at Stradey on Tuesday. Mr Ernest Trubshaw. J.P., D.L., set the ball rolling in the first half, whilst Capt. C'olquhoun, Swansea, superintendent of the Swansea Police, kicked off in the second half. The game was well contested, and some humorous and interesting incidents were witnessed. At intervals it presented a ludi- crous appearance and created much mirth, and laughter amongst the crowd. The visi- tors were slightly superior in the three-quar- ter line, but the forwards were very evenly matched. P.C. Williams, scored in the first half, whilst P.C. Andrews added another try in the second. Mr. Richard Jones, Felinfoel Brewery, who held the whistle, did everything but enforce the Welsh Rugby rules, although he made every ,effort to do so. Mr -I)aiis Wil- liams, J.P., and Mr. Frank Nevill, J.P., chair- man and vice-chairman respectively of the Llaneliy Hospital Committee, were the touch judges. The arrangements had been carried out satisfactorily, and the funds of the Hospital, which are in such a precarious condition, are likely to receive a strong impetus as the re- sult of the game, for which the local police are to be commended.
PICTUREDROME. The Picturedronie is now recognized by everyone in Llanelly as the proper place to go to, and on Easter Monday numbers of people were turned away. Places of amusement- generally have a programme of the mediocre type for holiday crowds, but the management of this popular house always provide the best show it is possible to have. You can always rely on a good night's enjoyment. One of the principal items this week is the beautiful re- citations given by Miss Bessie Smith. This is the first time that this young lady has ap- peared at the Pieturedrome, and. judging by the success she attained on the night of our visit, it will not be. the last. The chief pic- ture for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday is the "Scar," one of the dramatic subjects that are always in favour. Then another, which is teeming with pathos, is the "Broken Heart," a story of a young Frenchman who, in his boyhood days was brought up with a. young lady on a farm. The lawyer who placed her there, after a. few years takes her away. The younp man, broken-hearted, goes to Paris, and eventually finds her. but she casts him off for another who is blessed with more-riches. The young roan returns home dejected, and goes to a pond where he at one time saved he" from drowning. He fancies he sees her in the water, .and rushes forward, deeper and deeper, until he sinks entirely from view, giving a most unusual ending, which makes the picture more acceptable. Another grand, pictorial concert will be given on Sunday at 8 o'clock (silver collection), and 011 Monday another entire change of pictures.
