Mid-Rhondda Musings. Local tobacconists have already taken advantage of the proposals of the Budget. Most brands of tobacco have gone up td. to a Id. per ounce. --+-- Those who have a good stock on hand will thus realise handsome profits ere they will be called upon to pay a penny more to the manufacturers. A friend of o-Lim declares that he intends keeping count of the extra money paid for his weed in case the Budget is rejected by the Lords. If this happens, he will ask his tobacconist for a rebate. --+-- Whisky, we are also told, has gone up in a proportionate degree. This we can- not verify from experience, because, being Welsh, we still stick to water. The problem of the day in Tonypandy is the dust nuisance and how to abate it. The Rhondda. has always been parti- cularly favoured in this respect, but the advent of the cars hast increased the evil a hundred-fold. in particular, are loud in their complaints. A milliner, in a large way of business, informed us the other day that the damage done to expensive goods in shop windows is enormous. The provision already made by the Council is quite inadequate, and if some- thing more effective than the antiquated water-cart could be devised, we have no doubt that tradespeople would unite in giving the inventor a splendid testimonial. We give, for what it is worth, a sug- gestion made to us the other day, riz., fitting up all tramcars with an arrange- ment similar to that already used by water-carts, the flow of water being turned off and on as the driver wills. Such an arrangement, if possible, would no doubt minimise the dust evil to an appreciable extent. May we commend it to Mr. Nisbett and his enterprising com- pany ? I The friends of the local Y.M.C.A. are appealing for 5,000 shillings towards equipping their new rooms in Dunraven Street, Tonypandy. Huge yellow posters appear on the hoardings, wherein we are told that mem- bers will take it as a compliment if further particulars are asked of the movement. The secretary is an urbane gentleman, and the framing of that poster deserves a, hearty response. — Such an institution is much needed in the district, and we trust that our friends' efforts will be eminently success- ful. Local Carnegies, please note. A manacled lady was found in the sea off Penzance in the latter part of last week. It was at one time feared that it was one of our local" Pirates"- pirated Mr. S. F. Edge, balloonist and motorist, writing to the secretary of the Cardiff Pageant Committee, says that if he visited Cardiff during the Pageant, it would pro- bably be in a balloon. A night of fancy, evidently. --+-- The "Pirates of Penzance" were look- ing out for a capture all last week, and were successful on Saturday, when they discovered a treasure cove at Harrison and Evans' studio, when the company raided their premises by surprise. It must have been the high-class portraiture done by those popular photographers that they discovered. 4823
Pentre Pellets. It is not true that one of the young ladies employed at a Government office in Pentre has become a Suffragette. This rumour was evidently circulated owing to the charming damsel being able to despatch mails with promptitude. Furthermore, the lady concerned is known to be an admirable "Cook," and this virtue alone stamps" her out as being a person fond of home with no desire to swell the ranks of a society wherein no order exists.

-"RPW Will the window-dresser of a certain drapery establishment, please refrain from making grimaces and gestures whilst criticising his artistic display, for passers- by may jump to the conclusion that he periodically feels "dicky"? A Seotch_ friend of ours states that the stal" comedienne apoearins: at the Tivoli this ia-eek Keii.d all that was worth knowing of stagei life. We agree with him, but it must have cost 'er n some- thing, though. --+-- The members of Cory's Band were treated to a delightful discourse at the Wesieyan Chapel on Sunday night for the minister Rose" to the occasion and delivered a pienstuit homily upon their pet art.

We fear that the itinerant, flower mer- chants who assiduously supply" courting" couples with bouquets every week-end, will ere long be "courted" themselves, for the police are noticed to be taking "stock" of their behaviour.
Porth Jottings. There was a great "fall" in bread at Porth on Wednesday last, occasionect by I a nasty accident to a bread van, the pro- perty of Mr. Hopkin Morgan.. —*— I While coming down Cemetery Hill, with the rain pouring down in torrents, the horse suddenly fell forward, half empty- ing the van in its fall. Fortunately, the driver escaped unhurt, but the horse was badly injured on the knees, head and ears. The shafts of the van were also broken. Bread was lying in abundance on the road. -+- The Lewis Merthyr Lawn Tennis Court is fast being completed. It will be ready in a fortnight's time. A bandstand will also be erected on the grounds. There are generally" banns" and "bands" in connection with courting business. --+- To Mr. J. W. Hutchinson is due the credit of having furnished Porth with a first-class cricket ground, and also an ex- cellent lawn tennis court. It is to be hoped that other influential gentlemen of the immediate vicinity will emulate the agent's generous example. -+-- There are enough of wind instruments blown at the Palace this week to create a cyclone. A musical tornado, evidently. The face of our Conservative friend would not look more haggard if he had been endeavouring to digest the tacks instead of grappling and digesting the various taxes of the Budget. --+-- One of the employees of the Belgian firm that is now fixing new screens and chemical works at the Lewis Merthyr Col- lieries was caught in a crab on Sunday last and very seriously injured.
