ON Tuesday evening a discovery of human remains was made at the back of Mr J. G. Morgan's new premises in Lamtnas-street. A workman, whilst excavating the ground preparatory to the erection of a wall, turned up a human skull, which, however, had been somewhat shattered by the pick-axe before it was noticed. Dr E. R, "Williams, who examined the skull, was of opinion that it appeared to be that of a young person, about 20 years of age. IL is by 110 means an unusual occurrence to discover human remains in the neighbourhood of Friar's park --or Parc-y-brodyr—on which the back of Mr J. G. Morgan's premises abuts. The gardens of some of the cottages have yielded ZD I up human remains occasionally and all the evidence goes to show that the burying ground of the Monastery of the Grey Friars was situated 011 the side of the house nearest to Dark Gate. It was here that the remains of Rhys ap Thomas—the ancestor of the House of Dynevor—who fought at Bosworth, were interred before they were removed to St, Peters Church on the dissolution of the Monastery in the days of Henry VIII. Besides the old names which attach both in Welsh and English to Friar's-park, It is interesting to notice that Lammas-street formerly bore the name of Kyrc Street "— an appelation which would seem to be derived from the Greek words, Kyrie dcison" (" Lord have mercy "), which were —and are—such a frequent refrain in the Litanies sung in the Roman Catholic Church, and which would be familiar enough to all who heard the monastic choirs. The discovery of human remains in such a place proves incidentally that the fact of a burying- ground being consecrated is no guarantce- as it is commonly supposed to be—that it shall not be desecrated by future generations. WE learn that the Carmarthen Borough Folice made a raid on a small scale last Sunday and that consequently two publicans will appear before the magistrates next Monday charged with breaches of the Sunday Closing Act. THE schedule of the United Counties Agricultural Show, which is to be held on the :(-tll August at the Ystrad Meadows, Carmarthen, has just been issued. A more valuable collection of prizes has seldom been offeied in South-West ales. There are several champion prizes of X1 • the ordinary first prizes are whilst plates and cups are offered in profusion. The fact that the young society is in such a flourishing condition in its third year, shows that it has firmly taken root as one of the agricultural fixtures of the district.

TRACTION ENGINE. Mr Henry Studt appeared before the Council and applied to be allowed to take his traction engine over the bridges in the Eastern division. lie had received a license to bring his engine through the Western division but he did not know where thp divisions bounded each other, had brought it over the bridges there lie was prepared to make ¡.:ood any damage causcd to the bridge or road hi usually put planks over the bridges so as to) distribute the weight evenly. Mr Bowen Duvies, the surveyor, said that most of the bridges in the Eastern division were very old, and it would be very uni-afo to let a tractiou engine go our them. Mr G wily tu Evans opposed the application lID the ground that the Council would be taking a great risk by liccus'm; ihe engine for the Eastern Division iu tho face of the report of the Sutveyor Mr W. I". Jones pointed cut that it was ridiculous to object, to .1 traction engine tt ij ionti in weight, whilst they allowed twenty-ton boilers to go over without let or hindrance. It was agreed, en the motion of Mr John Ltwis, seconded by Mr Jamts John, that the license be granted. 1 RIMMING IlEDGE-s. Mr Gwilym bfflUS drew attention to the fact that the hedges overhung the roads in some parts of the county and in others they were kept feiiwnied. In tiome places he found the Council's workmen were eugagpd in doing the work, which ought to be done by the owners. The Us: k read the section of the Ad empowering the Council to call upon the owners to keep the hedges from overhaLging the road. lG was agreed oil the irolion of Mr John Juhnb seconded by Mr G wilyai mami, that the Surveyor enforce the law in this respect. DliYSLWYN BRIDGE, I I Mr Codrington attended and presented hie plans fur the pioposeci bridge at Dryslwyu. A discussion oroeo as to the width wlvkh the liidge should be Mr Joseph Joseph proposed the adoption of the report of the committee that the width be 20 fcut. Mr John Johns said he did net see why they should make some parts of the county ornamental and to starve others. He thought IG feet would be wide enougii, and it would allow space for two carts and also for foot passengers, Mr R W Stephens concurred. Carmarthen bridge had more tiaffic than there was likely to be at Dryslwyn and it was only 10 feet wide. Mr John Lloyd said that the bridge of 16 feet wide would do as well as Llandilo-yr-ynys bridge, over which there was a great deal of traffic. Dr R L Thomas, Col. G wynne Hughes, and Mr Gwilym Evans supported the adoption of a 16 feet bridge. Mr Codringion said he should not advise the Council to build a. bridge only 1G feet in width it would be very long and would not look well. The bridge would cost £ 5,00'J or £ 6,000. Mr J;i me:3 John supported the building of an IS feet bridge. They all knew veiy well that the Caruaithen bridge was too narrow. Mr R W Stepheus I have never found it too narrow. Mr Jamce John said that Mr R W Stephens crossed the bridge once a week probably those who crossed it every day found it too narrow. On its teing put to the meeiing, there voted for an eighteen-toot bridge, 14 and for a sixteen- toot bridge, 22. The latter was, therefore, adopted and it was decidtd that Mr Codiingion should prepare com- plete specifications, etc., tor the next meeting of the MAin Roads Committee. ABEliGORLECH BRIDGE. A letter was read from Mr Shipley Lewis, Llandilo, calling attention to the fact that the old bridge at Abcrgorleeh was Hat kept in repair. The Surveyor (Mr E Bowen Davies) said that the Council had never repaired the bridge. Mr Ben Eran; said he believed this bridge had bi en repairable by the hundied. The Clerk said that in that case if the bridge had stood on a main road, it would base been repair- able by the County Council. As it was, he took it that it was repairable by the District Council. Mr Gwilym EVLUS asked if the District Council could be indicted lor not repairing the bridge. The Clerk said lie believed anybody could indict the District Council on that ground. Mr Gwilym Eviis Could we indict then The Clerk I am not prepared to say we could. Sir James Hills-Johnes said it was no good saying that anybody could indict the District Council that sun ply meant that nobody would do it. If it the duty of the County Council t." indict the District Council, they should do so if not, they should leave it alone. It wa; agrccd that the Clerk should take what- ever steps were n?ces?;iry to compel the District Council to attend to the work and then he ehmikt t*ke Council's opinion if ncccseary. G1. ANA MM A N (i V TTE R. A complaint was received from Glanauiman a, to the condition of a gutter there, which was stated to be full of stf iuant water. The Surveyor was directed to see to the 1-ELINBAN BRIDGE. Dr Thomas brought up tho requert of tht Caruur hen Rural District Council for leave to Caruur hen Rural District Council for leave to erect a bridge partly on the main roid at FeliDban. Llanddowror. He filci mov^d that the Council contribute £ 4 0 to the cost. The Chairman ruled the latter part of the motion out of order, as sufficient notice had not been eiven. The first portion of the motion was adopted. Dr Thomas said it was net his fault that the application was not cn the agenda.

The Ule: k said that the authorities at Whitehall had returned the bye-laws as to tyres, tte., suggesting that those adopted in Cardiganshire should also be adopted in Carmarthenshire.
