The Churchyard again It has been said '"tiTMv tOWu 111 y English is not, as Sir llliam Harcourt puts it, alwavs "under- standed ot the people." The question of the churchyard is so very important that I feel it incumbent upon me to write about it in English as she is spoke at Llamlilo." The Shushyart iss in a ferry bad condishwn. Ferry bad inded. The gras is never killed and the aliet\s aie a disfzras even to the <rrass The Vicar, Mis tar Price; says it iss the busi- ness of the shushwardans. How efer be it the cwestiwn is oifully inipot-taiit. Personally, I think that the best way out, of this difficulty is to call together a public meeting of the ratepayers and have this matter looked into. If something is not done I shall name the churchwardens next week. m And now I come to another and perhaps more important matter. The new Board School, of which there has been so much talk and on behalf of which a have worked so hard, is to have a swell opening on the 27th lust. Ihe optimistic champions who have stuck to their guns from first to last have secured no less a person than Sir George Kekewich, the great figure head of the Educational JJepa rtment, to formally open the school. Mr Abel Thomas, M.P., will be there also. <t; Lovers of religious equality in this valley must for once throw oft. their apathy and proverbial languidness and work for all they are worth to make the opening a complete success. This is doubly necessary just now. The doughty leader of the progressive party is in London, and fiery, soul-inspiring Towyn ill in bed. Yet-thanks to Providence—we have Mr J. fl. Jones, Brynamman, alive i(aiid, perhaps, if required) kicking. Mr Jones is a valiant and strong Radical, possesses boundless enthusiasm and pluck, which knows no funking. A better chairman for the opening committee could not be found. And I, on behalf of the cause of Progress, appeal to the public in general and his fellow Board members in particular, to support him whole-heartedly. The new school will meet with keen opposition from the Tory quarter, but so has every movement which makes for freedom. Llandilo Nonconformists for the honour of your town, your country, and your God, be up to the auspicious occasioll The success of the moment rests mainly on your shoulders. In vain will" J.R." have tucked up his sleeves, unless you second ^vith unmistakalbo signs of hparty approval, his highly commendable efforts. Sir George and Mr Thomas should have a right royal Welcome, as only Welshmen can give. Some people who have no children, or others who are unmarried, may on that score not feel interested in this important shift- forward. I don't believe there are many such at Llandilo. If there are, it is well for them to remember Russell Lowell's divinely inspired words- They are slaves most base, Whose love of right is for themstlvcs And not for all their race." VI- Speaking of Mr J. K. Jones, reminds me of his brother, Dr Richard Jones, who is working up a practice and making a name for himself at Llandilo. The young doctor cleared all before him at the Westminster College of Pharmacy. It is not generally known that he is an eye specialist of a high order. He is specially qualified to treat eye diseases of every nature. Dr Jones is a|so an adept at chess, the medal for the championship for the South of England peine" in bis pnaoocoion..A~u.il ulitsaa vfijuirfis dogged perseverance and a fertile brain! No appointment was ever more popular in Llandilo than that of Mr Edwin Griffiths' decent promotion to the managership of • tS3ra Jones and Co's bank. No man more well-beloved in the town and district than the new manager. His zeal and devotion to his duties—whatever they lUay be—have made him unIversally respected by his neighbours of all creeds and of none. Mr Griffiths is a living example of the truth of Physiognomy. Pluck and determination are indelibly written on his fine broad forehead, his cool unflioehino- eyes and well-knit figure. You need not Vol twice that he has been an active corpsUfoffi He Was atJached to the local LonPg Service Medal." aWarded the Mr Griffiths first saw light at Uwynhelig, Landilo, in 1846. At 17, after having a K°U eclucation at the National School, e became a clerk to the late Mr Protheroe hash'5 0n Forthe last 25 years he as oeen connected with the bank famed over the country as "Bank yr Eidon Du." Mr Griffiths has been local secretary, and also District Secretary to the Philanthropic Institution for over 20 years. Like all other successful men, he has seen the ups and downs of life. This world has not been to hm an Earthly Paradise. A few weeks ago loss bovved dovvn with grief at the rw J seventeen-year-old daughter— rriffi-t, K'beth. Genial Inlpector S ls his brother.

A third Point in common to both families is their fo diiess for i-iiusic which Congreve m his Mourning Bride says that it has Si ^°?h° the breast." Mr Griffiths and his son are full of it while Miss E. A. Griffiths-the Inspector's daughter- had she rosy health would make an acceptable concert singer. To conclude, the subject of this sketch in the humours of the world and in the affairs of every-day life is a down-right good-hearted man.

In time gone by I was generally put down as a confirmed lunatic, but now I am universally regarded as being all at home." And were our Urban District Council iust to put my schemes into execution, the thermometer of public opinion would rise to blood heat in their favour instead of being as it is now below zero. < Upper Brynamman sadly needs a peeler Working by the ordinary rule of three it ought to have five or six. At Llandilo we have a Chief Superintendent, a Deputy Superintendent, Mr Jack Phillips, Sergeant Griffiths, and two bobbies to look after our interests and their own. Brynamman, with its collieries and its pubs," has none. Can't we spare one or two ? I am glad of this opportunity to put on record my appreciation of the vocal powers of some of our local artistes. Miss Lily Parry is a splendid soprano, and has on more than one occasion drawn down the house when so-called trained R.A.M. singers proved flat. Miss Parry is the daughter of Mr Thomas Parry, who has for years presided at the organ of the Llandilo Parish Church. I hear also rare praise given to Mr Lewis, a coachman of Mr Gwynne- Hughes, Tregib. Mr Lewis is a splendid singer, b Llandovery will some day—towards the thin end of the millenium—wake up to its filthy sanitary condition. A J.P. of this county told me recently on his best Sunday oath that he failed to go down Stone-street owing to the horrid stench arising out of the open drains. Llandilo is bad enough, but the Collegiate town is far worse. Llandilo and Llandovery are well supplied with schools. But we want brawn as well as brain, and if our young people are to get the maximum quantity of the first we must have Recreation Grounds, and those before 2,898.
Proposed Bridge at Llangadock. A public meeting was held on Thursday, Sept. 15th, at the Magistrate's-room, Llan- gadock, Mr St Vincent Peel, high-sheriff of Carmarthenshire, in the chair, to consider the advisability of erecting a bridge over the river Sawdde, near Llangadock. The urgent need of a bridge has long been recognised. The County Council some years ago appointed a special committee, with the late Mr George Jones, J.P., Ystrad House, as chairman, to inquire into the question of bridges in the county, and the Committee recommended that a bridge should be erected on Garregsawdde Common, near Llangadock. In recent years three lives Lave betiu lust Uirougli people attempting to cross the Sawddo during a flood at that spot. But though the necessity has been universally recognised, no definite attempt has before been made-either by a public authority or by the inhabitants of the district—to overcome the difficulties in the way; The meeting was very well and influentially attended, amongst those present being Mr St Vincent Peel, Mr William Davies (County Councillor"), Mr Tudor Lewis and Mr E. Price Evans) Mr W. Griffiths, Brynchwith (District Coun- cillors), Mr Llewelyn AVilliams, Mr Jones (Danyrallt), Mr Davies (Aberllechach), Mr Griffiths (Dolbant). Mr Harries (Pentre), Mr Williams (Godraugarreg), the I?ev W. Rees (Vicar), Mr F. Morgan (surveyor), and Mr Morgan Davies (engineer, Swansea). In Mr Morgan Davies submitted several plans, which were carefully considered. The first plan was for a steel bridge of 3 spans of GO feet each, and 16 feet wide, to carry 10 tons, to cost £ 2,700, but alter a long discussiou this was rejected as being too costly. Another was for a bridge of one span of 10 feet on Gable Fach. which would cost in all S 1, 500 or X 1, 600, but this was also rejected for the same reason and an account of the comparative inconvenience of the site. Eventually, 011 the proposal of Mr W. Davies (Couuty Councillor), seconded by Mr Tudor Lewis (District Councillor), it was unanimously agreed that a 3 span steel bridge of 45 feet each, 12 feet wide, to carry 5 tons, be erected on Carregsawdde Common, as near as possible to the site occupied by the existing wooden footbridge. Mr Morgan Davies estimates the cost to be about XI,350, and he was instructed to prepare the plans in detail at once. The meeting then resolved itself into a committee of ways and means, with power to add to its numbers. Mr Peel was I appointed treasurer, and Messrs Tudor Lewis and John Harries secretaries. It was decided to issue an immediate and urgent appeal to the property owners and inhabitants of the district, with a view to raising a nucleus of the estimated cost by public subscription before approaching the District Council. As a result the following subscriptions have already been promised, the major part of which has been actually I been paid into the Treasurer's hands Mr St. Vincent Peel, T-200 Mr G. P. Lloyd, J.P.

LlaniMvery Agricultural Show, The tenth annual exhibition in connection with the Llandovery Agricultural .Society was held in the Castle Grounds on Friday in abnormally warm weather and before a record attendance. This is undoubtly the best arranged show in the whole of Carmarthen- shire, although practically in its infancy- a creditable state of things, which is mainly due to the seaiching and courteous manner in which the hon. see., Mr C. P. Lewis, has, superintended the work of organisation since its inception. He has also always had. a large stafi of indefatigable stewards at his command. This year's president was Mr Gerwyn Jones, Pantglas, the vice-president being Sir James Hills-Johnes, Y.C., G.C.P> Dolaucothi, whilst the hon. treasurership was again undertaken by Mr Jonah Watkins. The judges were Horse and ponies Mr J. G. Kirby. Penllergare Mr Davies, Broad oak Mr Griliiths, Price, Abercray Mr J. Price, Pipton. Shorthorns and classes 1 and 2- Sheep: Mr Richards, Gell.vwernen Mr E. Burnett, Golden Grove. Castlemartins and pigs Mr E. Evans, Maesymynach; Mr Harries Maerdy. Farm produce: Mr Treharne, Carmarthen; Roderick, Llettglyd. Green crops Mr 11 Falconer. Bremenda. In every department there was a decided improvement on previous years, the entries having increased by 80. A feature of the show was the large entry of Herefords, and in one or two j of the competitions, the judges had considerable difficulty in arriving at a decision. This was particularly the case in the class for yearling bulls and heifers. The two-year-old',heifers were a very good class, the whole of the awards being given to four of the half-dozen animals shown by Mr James, Llwynjack. The Castlemartins, also, were an exceedingly fine lot especia'ly the young exhibits although they showed signs of having been brought straight from the grass. In fact,.all the'exhibits in the yard were very fairly shown. The Shorthorn bull belonging to Mr J. Harries, Penybank was a grand animal, showing'plenty of size and quality The horse department was very well filled, many of the exhibits showing excellent quality. The prize-winning cart brood mare was worthy of better company, and is undoubtly, a very valuable animal. Hackneys too, came in for high eulogiums from the judges, the,best brood mare being a beautiful mover andjshowing bone and quality com- bined. With the exception of the placed animals, the cobs were an ordinary lot, capable of vast improvement. Sheep were also a ,arge entry and of uniformly high merit, the yearling rams being so good that every animal received a card. One of the most successful exhibitors throughout the day was Mr D. Jones, Llanfair, who unfort- unately for the district, is shortly leaving for Cardiganshire. The annual dinner was afterwards held at the King's Head Hotel, when Mr D. S. Thomas, (mayor) presided, in the absence of Mr Gerwyn Jones. The following is the PRIZE LIST. CATTLE. CLASS A-HEREFORDS Eull, aged lef, Mr D Williams, Erryd Farm 2nd, Mrs A James Ystradwalter.

Death of Mr Baugh illen, of Narbeitli. The death of Mr Geo. Baugh Allen, of Cilrhiw, Narberth (Pern.), and 5, Albert- terrace, Regent's Park, London, took place at his London residence on Monday. Mr Allen was the son of the late Mr Launcelot Baugh Allen, J.P. for Pembrokeshire, and was 77 years of age. In 1846 he married Dorothea, the daughter of Mr Roger Eaton, of Park Glass, Pembrokeshire. The deceased was the eldest brother of the late Canon Alien, and was ivlated to the late Dean of St. David's and Mr H. G. Allen, late M.P. for the Pembroke Boroughs, and also to the late Mr Thomas Allen, of the South Wales circnit. The deceased, was well known as a special pleader, and was held in the highest esteem by all with whom he came in contact. Mr G. Romilly Allen the well-known aichreologist and secretory of the Cambnan Archfcological Society is a son of the deceased.
LLAKGENNECH. A NEW JUSTICE OF THE PEACE.— Alderman Joseph, J.P., of Llangennech, is the only Liberal Nonconformist among the new batch of magistrates for Carmarthenshire. No one is more respected than he in Llan- gennech, in which place he was born in 1835, where his forefathers lived and diffused deeds of love and charity. Mr Joseph carries on a flourishing milling business in Llacellv, and has occupied for the last 30 years the position of registrar of births, I marriages, and deaths for the Loughor district. The son of a Congregational minister, he became a member of Bethesda r, n 1 0 Congregational Church, Llangennech, when 17 years of age, and a deacon at 22, and he has served as a teacher in the Sunday school from that time to the present except for the period when he acted as superintendent of the school. It is interesting to note that among those who attended his class was the Rev Morlais Jones, of Lewisham, London, whojias since reached great eminence in the Congregational pulpit. In Llangennech, Mr Joseph is almost indispensable in all public movements. He is a sound total abstamer, and has espoused the cause of temperance on everv nnssihJe ocmsnnn hen the Parish Council came into operation, Alderman Joseph was made its chairman, which post lie has occupied ever since. But his services went bevond parochial limits, for in 1889, when the County Council was first formed, Mr Joseph was made an alderman for six years, and in 1895 he was re-elected for the same period.
