Llanclly Church Schools. I o —— 'Lm;WAIL. I PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT DENIED. I At a. meeting cf the Education. Committee on Thursday night s. discussion took place with regard to the recent transference of a child from the National School to one of the elementary schools of the town. The Clerk read the following letter from the managers:— Bear Sir,—Judging- from the newspaper reports of a discussion that took place in reference to a scholar leaving the Church Schools. e ;< ;.r that some of your commit- tee must have been under some misappre- hension. In order that the true facts of the case may be laid before you, we requested the headmistress to furnish us with a report which we now have pleasure in enclosing, i It is perfectly true, as one of the members of your Committee observed, that a distinc- tion is made between the Church Schools and the rest of the. schools of the town, a distinction that we have reason to complain of most bitterly. But, in spite of many difficulties that we labour under, we main- tain that not a word of reproach can be levied, either against the management or the staff of teachers under their control. Yours faithfully, F. L. MARGRAVE. Chairman. Education Committee. In her report to the managers of the Church of England School, Miss Johnson stated that Winnie Mitchell, Sandy Gate Terrace, had been transferred to Old Road School under the following circumstances, which they would notice, were at. variance with those which ap- peared in the local newspapers. The child persisted in coming late to school, in spite of many protests from her, and, in consequence, her work became very poor, and she had to be put- back a standard. "I presume," added Miss Johnson," that the objection wa.s made to this, for I understand that her parents waited upon the Clerk, who called to see me and re- quested a transfer, which, I would not grant at first, but was ultimately persuaded to do so with some pressure. I may add that on no occasion has Winnie Mitchell been forbidden school. I showed her books to the Clerk, and he agreed that. the work was very poor." The Chairman said that when he and the Vice-chairman attended a meeting of the managers they asked to see a copy of Miss Johnson's report. The copy was handed to him, but Miss Johnson had not recorded, as she had in the report presented to that Com- mittee, the reason for excluding the child. He endeavoured to prevail upon the managers not to reply to what had appeared in the newspapers until they had seen the report which that Committee had received, which distinctly stated that one child was excluded because it was continually late and for being dirty. The Committee discussed the report as it was submitted to them, If Miss Johnson had elected to add to the report, as she had now done, the comments at the last meeting would not have been made. Mr. Bramxvell Jones: Ftbink a copy of Miss Johnson's report shodd be sent to Mr. Mar- grave. The Chairman: I made it my duty to send the report to the managers. Mr. Brautwell Jones: We should reply to it officially to their correspondent. The Chairman: We certainly take exception to. any reference that we give preference, or that we have in any way hi fiber regard for our own elementary schools. If you will allow me to draft a. letter I will do Mr. Willis Jones: Is it a fact that a letter was written subsequent to the t.-iuo you v. cut there to prevail upon the managers In wait until they had received a cony of the original report ? The Chairman: Unfortunately, this letter is dated March SOth. and Miss Johnson's report- March 13th. They had this report in hand when I attended the meeting. They had six- teen days to consider the matte. and Icid no' reason to withhold this report after seeing Miss J ohnsorv's report to \1' Mr. Willis .lo: s: I-lave on cor the report The Chtiirman: No. Ii :s Mv.iilai V.

Mr. Willis Jones: rlh >.t Lette: d sub- sequent to the period the Ch;; ¡lIJ1:Jl\ tended the meeting. it is important e they proceed to make an allegation t this Committee after 11 < Chairman their ini!°t;!ie. The Chairman: I have given the -ori re- port to Mr. Margrave, so that ih?rc should be no doubt ahout it. ¡ Mr. Willis Joiie?: It is important ihnt art crucial reply should be given to that report. It is an attempt to make this Committee re- sponsible for some difference in treatment. It will bf a matter of evidence in thd case. The Chairman said there was no difference in management, as was well known to the Committee and the public at large. Mr. Brannyell Jones: Are < v < t 1 uvr out the arrange me ii.t which wav i > n< > i etween this Committee and the n]an<lger; ;jOItfe years ago? The Chairman: Yes, to the letter. Mr. Simlett: You have made no agreement, and you. cannot produce one. t Mr. Vivian said that if anagreCDJU1, was in existence the Committee should see it. II Mr. Bramwell Jones said it was understood that the managers should manage the two schools, provided they were allowed to receive the grants. It-was reported to the Committee by Messrs. E. T. Jones and H. H. Bevan. Mr. Vi vian: Is there an agreement in cxis- j ten.ee'? The Chairman: I think you should give 1 notice to the Clerk of anything of that kind. After further discussion it was decided to I send an official reply tr. the letter. I

FALLEN WOMEN. I APPEAL BY THE REV. HUGH JONES. I The annual meeting of the Young Women's Christian Association was held at the Old Town Hall on Friday evening, Mr. Harry D. Evans presiding, being supported by Mrs. W. H. Ludford (treasurer), Miss Brodie, and Mrs. H. D. Evans. Mrs. W. Y. Nevill presided at the reception held earlier in the afternoon, supported by Mrs. Daniel Williams (Box) and others, when solos were rendered by Mrs. Morton Evans, Miss Margery Evans, and a pianoforte solo by Miss Gertie Evans. About sixty young people attended, and the building was beautifully decorated by Mr. David Evans, Bradford House. The -officers of the local branch are:— President, Mrs. W. Y. Nevill; vice-president, Mrs. Daniel Williams; hon. treasurer, Mrs. W. H. Ludford, West End; hon. sec., Miss M. Brodie; Iron, gazette secretary, Miss Dorothy Jones, Edanhurst The balance sheet %as presented by the hon. treasurer, which snowed that the total receipts amounted to iE42 5s. ICd., and the expenditure to k28 13s. -ii., leaving a balance in hand of iEl3 12s. 3d. I The Chairman, in opening the evening meeting said he did not know why he had been asked to preside unless it was on ac- count of his connection with the Y.M.C.A. Possibly, many people would be favourably inclined towards these associations if they only knew more about them. It was not un- derstood generally how the different branches all round tho world were linked up together. Members who went away from Llanelly vould receive a welcome from members In almost any part of the world they might go to. The Association would receive greater support if the advantages were better known. Miss Weather bed, a lady who had spent three years in Y.W.C.A. work at Calcutta, re- presenting the Wect of England and South Wales, said much good work had already been done in IueLl. She hoped shortly to return to the field of labour. Calcutta was a, great city, very thickly populated, and there was a need for more Christian workers. There were 59 different languages spoken in the city. She hoped that in future the members would have a world-wide view of The Association, and not limit their efforts to their own locality. The Bengali students were very earnest, and at times asked most, difficult questions. The Indian people looked upon all who were not I of their own religion as Christians, and one of the difficulties experienced in the work was the bad example set by so-called Chris- tians. One day she noticed a white soldier, the worse for drink, helped into a cab by a native policeman. The natives looked on with derision, and said, "That is a Christian man." There were many difficulties to contend with in the mission field. The Rev. Hugh Jones moved a hearty vote of thanks to the speaker. There was much work, he said, to be done by the Y.W.C.A. even in Llanelly. The record of the work done in India should stimulate all members to greater effort. They could not all go to the mission field. There was an old adage that "Charity begins at home." Amongst young women in Llanelly There was serious business to be done. Only that day lie came across a sad case, when he inquired into the circum- stances of a young girl of 15 going about begging. How were young women of that kind to be dealt with ? They had been told of what, was done in India. Why could not a similar effort be made to save their sisters at home ? Was there a barrier between them and the sisters that had fallen ? Unfortunately, there were a n UUI bertn Lkmely. What effort was being made to rescue the unfortunate women of their own town—a Christian town with people who prided themselves upon the number of their churches and chapels. Al- most, everyone was connected with some pbice of worship. He was, however, afraid the ladies did not seem inclined to come forward. It was not possible for everyone to go into j the mission field, but many little services could be performed. He was afraid there was too much 'standuppishness," and they should get rid of b as soon as possible. I Brodie. in seconding, said they had all much enioyed the address of Miss Weathbed, and she hoped that it would prove an incen- ¡ tive to g'^atcr effort in the future. She felt j rather ashamed of the siiiail stum sent by the Llanelly Franch towards the Indian Fund, and hoped that a more substantial sum would be sent next year. She appealed to everyone present to bring 'n all the young women who were strangers, and give them a wel- come. The Ch-;rman. in supporting, said that by attending the meeting lie had discovered that There was more than one orator in the Brodie family n:ltJ11tC). Miss Westho"! nri responded. Solos wer" rendered by Miss Gladys Lewis, Miss Tilly Thomas, and Mr. W. J. Jenkins.
EVENING CLASSES. At the meeting of the Education Committee on Thursday night. Mr H. 1). Rees presidin, a letier was read from Mr. Nicholas, clerk to the County Authority, drawing the attention of the Committee to hremark contained in the report of His Majesty's Inspector for the year ending July 31st, 1909, to the effect that in such an illlport3Dt town as Llanelly lJU seLouls of ) the evening continuation type had been car- ried on during the past session. He had been requested to bring the matter to the notice of the Committee witll the object, of establishing such classes for the session 1910-1911. The County Education Committee would offer every facility tor the formation of the schools, which were necessary in a town like Llanelly, where there was a technical school of a pro- gress! ve cha racter. Mr. Simlett: The County Committee "will not give very m?ch to Llanellv. Mr. Bran)\\HH Jones :!Sk2d th? nature of the en-con i i n t they would receive from the County Committee. The ( I t an p: :i-d that the local Com- mittee would simply act as agents. They would have tin money to find. Mr. Jones: But our buildings will be used. The Chairman: Yes: but it will be well worth giving the use of them. Mr. Willis Jones, I i i^ed that a mittee be formed to make the necessary ar- rangement. and, if necessary, to with the County Authority, and report to that Committee Mr. BraumeII Jones pointed out that they ] had previously jumped at instructions given by the inspectors, which had meant an in- crease in the rates. He was not, however, antagonistic to the object in view, but be- lieved. as the period for which they had been elected was drawing to a close, the formation of a sub-committee should, be deferred. In the meantime the Clerk should apply for fur- ther information. Mr. Simlett said the schools would be of great advantage to, the working-men. Mr. Bramwell Jones: I do not take any ex- ception to it. I Mr. Willis Jonci desired that they should be responsive to any comnnniieation from the County Authority. They should not hesitate to co-operate with them. The Chairman concurred. After further v as decided that the matter he deferred, the Clerk was in- I structed to write for further information.

COUNTY COURT. l Monday, before His Honour Judge Bishop, The undefended cases were disposed of by the learned registrar, Mr. J. Walton Bishop. ADMINISTRATION ORDERS. I David John Jones, Hoelas, Ammanford, ap- plied for an administration order. His Honour asked the applicant why lie, had not paid his grocer and draper. Jones replied that he had been ill, and met with an accident. His Honour: You lived as if you were get- ting 30s. a week. Why not have a cheaper house? Jones:! only wish I could. His Honour: Well, go away, and try to pay your debts, or you will be in trouble all your life. An order was made. LIVING TOO WELL. I There was a similar application from Robert I Lewis, Wern Road. His Honour: This is another case of living too well on the wages you get. You have five drapers and one grocer. Mrs. Lewis: They will not give me any more credit. His Honour: You ought to pay more than 8s. a month. You have been recei-ing iPl 16s. 8d. a week. Mrs. Lewis: But I do not receive it all. His Honour made an order of ]2s. a month. INDIGNANT DEFENDANT. %). I Samuel Landy, picture framer, sued Agnes Mary Davies, Rose Villa, Stepney Road, Pvvll, in respect of the framing of two pictures. Plaintiff stated that he obtained the pic- tures in October, and took them to Old Castle Road in December, when he was told that the party had removed. He subsequently de- livered the pictures at Pembrey Road, having been informed that Mrs. Davies was not at home. j Mrs. Davies said that the pictures aid net I belong to her. His Honour: Then why don't you let him have them back? Witness: The man was so impudent. Later on Landy brought a taller man as a d.trj,.e to the house to try and frighten me. Bccauce I he was so impudent I asked for storage and 'I declined to return them. His Honour: Quite, right if he was impu- dent. Defendant: I should like him to pay for ll,y day's work to-day. His Honour: You could have saved yourself the trouble of coming here by returning the pictures. Defendant: He was a regular bully. His Honour: This sort of thing happens too often. You had ..better return the pictures. Defendant: I would smash them up first. His Honour: Oh! very well, there will be a I verdict for the plainiff for 10s. Now you can go and smash them up, if you like. SUPPLY OF BREAD AND CAKE. Richard I). Williams, Pottery Street, sued Philip Auckland, Auckland Terrace, for 9s 1M, in respect of bread and cake. There was a counter-claim of £ 1 3s. 6d. Mr. H. Hayton Williams represented the plaintiff, and Mr. Leslie Williams defended. Plaintiff said he did not admit the counter- claim. Mr. Leslie Williams said his client admitted owing 4s. 2d. in respect of bread. Plaintiff said the claim for grazing the horse for three weeks was not correct, as he was only in the field for two Sundays, and defen- dant's father had informed him that defen- dant had no right to give him permission to place the horse in the field. Defendant said lie had given plaintiff per- mission to place the horse in his (witness) father's field, at 2s. 6d. per week, and it was there for three weeks. At plaintiff's request, witness accompanied him to Fforestfach to purchase a pony, and bargained with the owner. After agreeing to purchase the pony they returned to Llanelly for the money, and witness, at plaintiff's request, returned to Fforestfach to fetch the pony, which, witness groomed. He had not been paid anything for his services. His Honour gave judgment for the plaintiff on the claim and counterclaim with costs. I COMPENSATION CASES. I Mr. Every, Pontypool, on behalf of Messrs Thomas Williams and Sons, Llangennecli, applied for the termination of a compensation award of 15s. a week to Richard Aubrey, Llan- gennech, subject to the payment of e220, and £20 in costs. Mr. Saunders (of the firm of Messrs. Ihn- dell, Saunders, and Rand ell), who represented Aubrey, said the man sustained a. double fracture of the leg. His Honour granted the application. CORK EXPRESS FATALITY. I Mrs. Winter, Railway Terrace, made a claim against the Great Western Railway Co., in re- spect of her husband, formerly an inspector on the line", who 'was recently killed by the Cork express. Mr. Kainmerer appeared for the widow.. Tltfe case was not contested, and His Honour awarded an agreed amount. COLLIER'S CLAIM. I Daniel.Tones made a claim against the G wendraetli Colliery Co. Mr. Saunders appeared for the. claimant, and an award was made of an agreed amount. CLAIM FOR DAMAGES. I Maggie Morris sued the Old Lodge Tinplate Company for damages. Mr. Lewis Phillips, who appeared for the applicant, said it had been agreed that the compensation should be 8s. 6d. a week for twelve months, and then 10s. a week. Mr. F. N. Powell who appeared OIl the other side, concurred. WOULD SANDOW CURE HIM? I II Messrs. Harry Brothers made application to have an order reduced in respect of certain, payments made to a man named David Davies, who was injured in May last. Mr. Smith, Swansea, appeared for Messrs. Harry, /and Mr. Saunders represented Davies. Mr. Smith said the man was examined in January and May, 1809, and on January 10th fast. There had also been an examination that day. Davies kept his hand either ban- daged up or in his pocket practically the whole time, and had not been using it in any way. Dr. Cameron would say that the man was in a worse state, and that it was due to. the fact that Davies would not use his hand. His Honour: It is the old story of doctors, and probably they are quite right. Dr. Came- ron would say that the man's own doctor told him to use his fingers, and that if he did so he would get better. It was quite possible that thernan would be able to use his hand if he tried to do so. Dr. A. W. Cameron, Swansea, said he was an assistant surgeon at the Hospital. Davies re- ceived a severe injury to the Tight hand above the wrist. The bone was broken, and the tendons were injured. There was no loss of sensation, the nerves not having been affec- ted. When he attempted to move his hand, Davies twisted his arm in all shapes. The wound had quite healed up. The accident certainly disabled the hand to a large extent. His Honour: Had you not better put him in the hands of Sandow? All newspapers say lie can cure anything. Dr. Cameron: Sandow will notcuro a man against his will. His Honour declined the application with costs, and advised the respondent to try and secure somesnitahleemployruent. MEMORANDUM OF AGREEMENT. I In the case cf?ewmanv. Richard Thomas aii?l (o, Ltcl., ail f(")I? Mr. G. Clarke Wi'tliiiiig, N?,' lio tl),e I workman, and Mr. Bow en Davies, who rcpre- sented the company, as to whether a memo- randum of agreement had been filed. Mr. Davies stated that there was a mistake in the date, and this was amended by con- sent. An application was then made to have the memorandum recorded as amended. The Registrar said the only difficulty was that the agreement had not been reduced to writing. Mr Davies' said the agreement was by letter. Mr. Williams: But the letter was written without prejudice. Mr. Davies said he could not see how that could he. His Honour stated that he did not under- stand why the letter was not sent. to the Re- gistrar. Mr. Williams said it was for the other side to intimate to the Registrar. His Honour said it was the duty of both parties. It was agreed to record the memorandum of agreement. Mr. Williams applied for costs, which His Honour declined to allow. An application was wade to record a memo- randum of agreement in the case ,of W. Evans v. the Western Tinplate Company. Mr. Clarke Williams (instructed by Mr. Saunders) represented the workman*, and Mr. F. N. Powell. appeared for the egiiipiiiy. Mr Clarke Williams said the agreement was admitted. Its genuineness had not' been questioned, and the only objection made was on the ground that the man had been able to resume work. Mr. Powell said he would not object to the memorandum being recorded so long as His Honour agreed to a stay of proceedings. His Honour agreed to the filing of the agreement.
Ashburnham Golfers. ANNUAL DINNER. An enjoyable evening was spent at the Step- ney Arms Hotel on Saturday night, when the members of the Ashburnham Golf Club held their annual dinner. There was a large as- semblage of gentlemen influential in the town and district. Mr. David John, Felinfoel, cap- tain of the club, presided. The Royal toasts having been honoured, Mr Rawes of the Llangammarch Golf Club, pro- posed the toast of the "Ashburnham Golf Club," and coupled with it the names of the I captain and secretary. He had heard, he | said, a great deal about the club and their links, but he had not had the pleasure of playing on the links until that. day. Every- body had spoken of them in the highest terms and after his experience he believed the links to be the finest in Wales (hear, hear). He spoke with bated breath about the captain (laughter). He felt sure they had a worthy captain, who had worthily fulfilled his duty. The same observation applied to their secre- tary, Mr. Kammerer. They had every cause to be satisfied with the results of last year, under the captaincy of Mr. David John (hear, hear). The Chairman, in responding on behalf of the club, said it was in a thriving position financially. The membership was gradually increasing, and lie hoped it would be main- tained. He expressed regret that he could not give them a long speech. It had worried him a great deal lately, but lie was told by Mr. Dan Williams, who was an expert, to "be natural" (laughter). During his tenure of office he had been ably assisted by th'e com- mittee. They had also a number of ladies playing on the links. He ,coneluded by refer- ring to the services of their secretary and his predecessor, Mr. Hall Gale. Mr. Gwyrine Thomas, manager of the Capi- tal and Counties Bank, proposed "Our Visi- tors." They were always glad, he said, to see visitors coming amongst them, but when they I were golfers their pleasure was greatly en- hanced. He was glad to hear the kind words uttered by Mr. Rawes about the Ashburnham, Club, and it must be a source of gratification to the Chairman to see such a large number supporting him. They were glad to see the visitors at their dinner, but would be happier to see them on the links (hear, lieai). Mr. David Davies., Swansea, in responding, said the game of golf made an improvement in one's physique and developed good fellow- ship. It wiped out the distinction of creed and sect in politics, and brought forward comradeship and sportsmanship (applause). Mr. R. L. Sails, Swansea, in the course of a humorous speech, which was frequently punc- f tuated with applause, said he could not say, like Mr. Havies that he was born in Llanelly; but he came there as lie gained in discretion (laughter). He had the pleasure of singing under the conductorship of Mr. R. C. Jen- kins, but. during the time he was in the choir they never gained anything beyond the second prize (laughter), hut so soon as lie left it they secured first honours (renewed laughter). He was also a member of the shooting team which was held in the town very many years ago. Golf was a noble game. hut it had never de- veloped his language as had been suggested, because he had a caddie who could help him out of a difficulty (laughter). The game was a healthy one and provided enjoyment, and it broke down social barriers. If it did no- thing else it kept them from doing a lot worse. During the evening Professor Hullev's Band rendered selections, and songs and duetts were given by the foliowitig:—Messrs. R. C. Jenkins, D. L. Joseph, R. L. Sails, W. H. Pro- theroe, Harold Trubshaw-, F. N. Powell. Mr. David Owen also delivered a humorous reci- tation, and was compelled to respond. Mr. • Luther Owen, deftly accompanied. I
I PICTUREDROME. I A large number of picture shows ha ve been, I to Llanelly, and none of them have done too well, but this home of amusement has fairly I captured the town, and well do • the manage- ment deserve success, as they provide a really higlr-class, refined show, such as one has often desired. Showmen as a rule pander to the lowest mind, but at the Lheturedrome every thing is reversed—nothing ever appears to hurt the feelings of the most fastidious. This week's programme- is a sample of the fare pro- vided. For those who are fond of excitement and pictures of the thrilling order we can commend "Muggins, V.C. this being a story of love and war. When one considers the ex- pense there must he in getting these pictures up, it is really wonderful how it pays to have them down at Llanelly, as this is a very late picture. Llanelly is on a par with London, these days, for the pictures shown there one week are at the Picture drome the next. The chief oomic picture was "Foolhead hero.' To-night (Thursday, "Comato the Sioux." or a story of an Indian constancy, will be shown. When we mention that the makers of this film are the famous American Biograph Company, our readers will know what to expect. "Teaehing the Blind" should he a very inter- esting picture, which will show our more un- fortunate brethren at work. We hope OUT readers will take special notice of the articles made, for household articles are one of the special lines. Nick Carter will, be with us once more, unravelling the mystery of the "Sleeping Pills." rftiose who have not not yet paid the picturedrome a visit would do well to do so -.now, as the pictures are better than ever. A grand pictorial concert will be given I on Sunday at 8 o'clock, when special pictures will. be shown for this night only.

Education Committee. A meeting of the Education Committee was held on Thursday night, Mr. H. D. Rees pre- siding. There were also present Mrs Phillips, Messrs. D. R. Jones, E. Willis Jones, Frank Vivian, Thomas Jones, John Simlett, and W. Bramwell Jones, together 'with the Clerk (Mr. Ivor Watkins) and the Deputy Clerk (Mr. Wilson). CHILDREN'S ATTENDANCES. I Whilst perusing the returns of attendances ] for the month, Mr Thomas Jones called atten- II tion to a note by the head teacher of Lakeneld School that some of the children were absent from school on account of the draughty classroom. I The Chairman said it was only a case of a window or a door being open. Mr. Thomas Jones: There is a further re- port that the exclusion of the children was due to their suffering from ringworm and scarlet fever. Has the doctor submitted a re- port f The Chairman: They were excluded by rea- son of a recommendation from the doctor. Replying to a question by the Chairman, Attendance Officer Thomas said that the low percentage of attendances at the Bigyn Girls' School which was 83 per eeiit. for the last, month, was due to illness. There were a few children who attended very irregularly. The Chairman pointed out that the children of the ( htlreh of England School and St. Mary's Roman Catholic School secured a per- centage of ninety-six. The boys' depart- ments of Park St. and New Dock Schools ob- tained 95 per cent. Mr. Simlett remarked that the attendance at the Church of England School was very good. The Chairman said he visited the Catholic School the previous week, and found a note in the log book that the attendance officer had not attended there during the month of April. Attendance Onicer Williams replied that he J had called there on three or four occasions. I Mr. Simlett: Who marks the registers of the I Church of England and St. Mary's Catholic I Schools? The Chairman: The managers of the school. Mr. Bramwell Jones: This Committee has -nothing to do with that. The Chairman: I do not want to see a Te- port in the log book that our officer has not attended the school. Mr. Willis Jones: THe percentage is ninety- six, and they have nothing to complain of if the officer did not call. Mr. Thomas Jones: That is not the point. They keep a log book. Mr. Willis Jones: Is that a sort of accumu- lative evidence against this authority? II The Chairman: I do not want evidence of that kind, if possible. The matter then dropped. TEACHER'S ASSOCIATION. I The application of the Llanelly and District Teachers' Association for the use of Lakefield School on April 23rd, for the purpose of hold- ing the annual meeting of the County Asso- ciation, was granted. INSPECTION OF SCHOLARS. A letter was read from the Board of Edu- cation, stating that they shortly proposed to make a full inspection of the Higher Elemen- tary School. His Majesty's Inspector would communicate with the Committee in due course as to the exact date. The Clerk said. the Board desired to know, before the inspection took place, the prospec- tive occupations of the scholars. Mr. Bramwell .Tones said the last monthly I report from the headmaster would convey a fair idea as to the future occupation of the children. The Clerk stated that he had sent the nece ss ary inform ation. Mrs. Phillips asked whether the children would be examined individually. The Clerk: I do not think so. There will be four or five inspectors coming down. I believe the Chief Inspector will, also come. MACHYNIS SCHOOL. I The Inspector submitted a report on the work of the Machynis School. Since the school was last reported upon, four or five years ago, it had made satisfactory progress. The discipline was good but the infants would get on better if they were trained in higher habits of alteution. The work, which, was carried on with difficulty, reflected much credit on the staff. The singing was particu- larly well taught. The rooms were also tidy and clean, but, the playground admitted of sume improvement. Replying to Mrs [''hillips, the. Chairman said there was a properly certificated teacher at the school. The Chairman observed that the report was a vüry good one. Mi*. Willis Jones asked why the Inspector had only reported once in four years. The Clerk replied that the reports were not regularly submitted.
I Loss of Twenty Sheep. I CLAIM AT THE COUNTY COURT. At the County Court on Monday, Eliza, Evans, Buari.hu Farm, sued Mary Thomas and Henry Juris Richards, Cefngorwydd Farm, Tyeroes. Mr. (J. Clarke Williams, Swansea (nst.ructed by Messrs. Roderick and. Richards), appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. T. G. Williams de- fended. Mr. Clarke Williams said the claim was for £21 in respect of the 'loss of twenty sheep. Some of them, were found lying dead in a field at Buarthu Farm, and a number were picked up in the Lougbur river. David Evans, son of the plaintiff, said he saw, two dogs one morning amongst, the. sheep. One was a sheep dog, and the other a re- triever. He had seen the retriever following a milk cart owned by Mrs. Thomas at Tyeroes. The dogs ran away as he approached. Several witnesses were called in order to prove the identity of the dogs. M.r. T. G. Williams, for the defence, saicl he did not think any remarks he made would have any effect on His Honour's mind His Honour: You are quite mistaken. Mr. Williams: Not at this stage, but later on J hope they will. Proceeding. Mr. Wil- Iiams said they all depJoTed the damage caused by the sheep killers that had been devastath'g the flocks in the neighbourhood of Ammanford. In this case he/would point out that, according to the evidence of the witnesses, they were in search of a dog of a certain description. The" police and others probably concluded that ilie defendant's bitch was the one because it was the only lame one they happened to find. It was a. common ground that there were a great number oi black retrievers in Ammanford. Mr. Clarke Williams said he did not admit it was common ground. Mr. T. G. Williams replied that he knew it from his own knowledge. Mrs. Mary Thorn is said she was the owner of the (log. It was lame some time before November. His Honour said the oyidencewas not strong enough to prove that the retriever dog was the culprit. There could be no douht that the collie dog was lame before the date in question. Judgment- would be given for the defendants.
