¡ Pontygwaith Pottage. A bachelor reader suggests opening a "Matrimonial Agency" in "Pottage." We fear there would be too great a de- mand for pottage at wedding breakfasts, so we turn a deaf ear. Wise men put on their cloaks when clouds appear." --+-- We congratulate the ambulance team on j its smartness. When in uniform the ] members look very imposing. They evi- dently believe, like Carlyle, that Clothes make men of us." (• A certain tradesman in Pontygwaith .asserts that anyone found trespassing in 1 his shop in search of good value will be amply rewarded. j 1,. Some excitement was caused by a fight jfn Pontygwaith last week. We considered | it a very practical demonstration of the Tariff Reform principle of "Retaliation." However, there was a "Free Trade" in black eyes." ey --+-- j A certain young man in Pontygwaith is well known for Bis habit of accosting friends by striking them on the back or nudging them in the ribs. We regret to iind the barbarism of the Stone Age still i amongst us. I -+-0 We had the displeasure of hearing one of our jokes repeated at a public meeting last week. Like Jove, we are jealous, and we object to anyone else stealing our thunder. --+- We have been pulled over the coals for 1 afcsociatiing the Tennis Club Pavilion with Noah's Ark. The fact that the latter con- ti ined animals never struck us at the time. We ewe the latter an apology. We have not said the last word about the Ham Box-we mean the Tennis F&rilion, The members have taken to Riming it in a most artistic tint—salmon your. However, we are told that it is M receive another over-coat. Judging from the quality of-the work, some of the members must have been reading Ruskin's Moci-em Painters." We ) believe that a few wield the brush so artistically as to be, able to whitewash a J coal-" cwtch."
j Treherbert Tags. At a local concert, the other week""the bass sang so well that it is doubtful ■; whether he really was a, barker." His singing was" close" to perfection. --+- A local magazine tells us, If the fire | is nearly out, sprinkle a little sugar on it." Yes, and likewise, if you want to wash your face, use soap—and water. The } sprinkling process is appropriate. --+- There is a young Miss in the neighbour- hood who loves a young man of consider- able wea-lth. Let us hope that her miss-ioii may become a iiian-sioii, and that there will be no miss-man- agement afterwards. --+-- People complain that the price" of fruit in Treherbert is higher than in any other part of the Valley. Aii-old jcove 6ays that people "'ought'n" to buy this dear fruit. Local fruiterers will note this without difficulty. W e hear that a Treherbert cricketer will shortly throw a ió maiden over." If he means to cut her acquaintance, we ex- pect he'll look daggers at her. He has made no hit," it seems. His innings is now over, and he is retired hurt.'1 Someone who believes he is subject to spiritual control has stated that his arm was once elongated by fourteen inches. The spirit must have been pulling his leg or lie is trying to pull ours. A "stretch" | of imagination, perhaps. A young lady teacher at one of the Council Schools had her teeth extracted recently. Whilst taking a class in needle- vork this week, she was vainly endeavour- r g to bite off a length of cotton, when s realised that she. had no teeth. ,+- We wonder that her tongue was not to sever the thread. But perhaps B.-le uses that for a better purpose- measuring yards of cotton, for instance.
Pentre Pellets. i *■ A cynic declares that the unfortunate a cident which befell one of our gallant j Territorials whilst out riding on Tuesday evening, predicts the downfall of the I ritish Army." Nevertheless, we have to f .-j our "Bobs" towards its upkeep. The beautiful oil-painting recently dis- pr :iyed at a local furnishing depot reflects g eat credit upon Mr. Hughes," Ton. variety of "hues" introduced into tfa portrait proves that the artist can ;se ■" his talent to advantage. --+-- j'he .sheep that prowl about our if ^onghfares at midnight present a queer tjctacle now that thev are "sheared." i-u footsteps are heard, they bolt 1.^ ugh sheer/' fright, and cause many abnau to get his "wool" off. CN.r city slept onj Monday, whilst the majority of its inhabitants waiu>d at dni'erent seaside resorts. This betokens majority of its inhabitants waiu>d at dni'erent seaside resorts. This betokens tie "dawn" of the holiday season.

Ystrad Yaps. Ystrad must be getting fairly level again, for we do not hear much of the Tumps of late. We have heard they contemplate buying an incubator, for they think that a good deal of money could be made by convert- ing their "ducks" into "chicks." It seems that the Chick they possess is a very good layer," but at present is not broody," and is a very poor" sitter," A budding Jessop is very annoyed because his 26 did not appear in the Leader latSt week. A fellow in Ystrad, named Chick, With a ball thinks he's awfully slick; But lie makes a mistake When he cries, See the break," For such breaks can be done with a brick. We know a young lady who thought she had found an umbrella, and very con- siderately placed it near a shop-window, so that the owner might find it" She soon afterwards found ;hat her own and that she had bee. a handle about, minus the cover.
Porth Jottings. Anniversary services were held at the John Pugh Memorial Hall on Sunday. Mr. Edwards, H.M. Inspector of Fac- tories, Cardiff, addressed.the men's meet- ing at the afternoon service. There was a crowded attendance throughout the day, and the meetings were much appreci- ated. Aviation" is now being practised at Glyn Street. Or is it that now Porth is being! visited by the once mysterious •"airship"? •"airship"? It certainly seems so, for last Sunday a balloon was to be seen hovering around the vicinity of Cymmer right enough. It was thought, at first, that Mr. Lathom's --ai-ship had arrived, but in- formation, elicited on Monday, proves contrariwise. We have yet to learn who is the mysterious balloonist. A certain young man at Forth says he won t go for holidays to the country any more. They say city girls are sharper than country girls," he said, but I don't believe it." --+-- Asked what were hia reasons for think- ing so, he replied: Well, you know I don t possess one of the sweetest of voices, but I wasn't aware of how charm- ing my voice was till the other week. -+-- I was up the country, you know," he continued, and I took rather a. nice young girl for a walk. We sat down presently on a bench, close bv a corn field. -+- We had been chatting pleasantly for a short time, when she suddenly said: "I wish you would not talk so loud; do you know that even the corn have ears?'
Porth Carnival. "Foul Misrepresentations." r, interest taken in the Porth Carnival this year certainly exceeds that 01 previous years. Thronged meetings are held every week, and every preparation held every week, and every preparation for its success is being made. On Wed- nesday evening last, Councillor W. T. Davies presided over one of the finest attendances hitherto held. There were two very important items upon the agenda. The first was a speech by Mr. W. T. Davies repudiating a cowardly and con- temptuous attack upon the officials. The Chairman said that a rumour had gone about the Trebanog district that the Carnival officials had held a banquet at the expense of the Carnival funds. This is a serious matter, and a downright lie continued the Chairman. The officers of the Carnival had not paid a single penny for the dinner, but had been the guests of Mr. Tom Davies, the secretary of the Hospital. Not only were the officers inno- cent of this charge, but they would not and were not capable of such a dirty trick (cheers). He felt that it was a great shame that the Carnival should be finan- cially injured because of these foul mi, representations (" Shame "). Mr. E. S. Williams corroborated the Chairman's remarks, and assured them that he had not paid out. nor would he lay out, any money towards defraying the, ipenses of a banquet (hear, hear). another item which caused a prolonged jussion was a petition, signed by up- irds of 150 prominent tradesmen,' A-c rrom Penygraig, Tonypandy, and the ad- joining districts, asking that the Carnival route be extended to the above-mentioned places. After an animated discussion, it was resolved to accede to the request, and to abandon the Trehafod, Cvmmer and Ynyshir sections.
Worth Knowing. The terrible itching caused by eczema stops with the first application of Cadum the new skin remedy. It is an antiseptic. allays inflammation, destrovs diseased producing germs, and begins the healing process with the first treatment. Cadum is naturally flesh-coloured, an-1 can there- tore be used on the face or hands without inconvenience or fear of detection.

[Jerusalem !!—Ed.] The morning lark evidently means to "swallow up all its competitors, for we notice it to be ever on the move," and packed so tightly with furniture that 'twill Car-no" passengers. Cannot something be done to remedy the lot of the Pentre shoo assistants? The collier has his eight hours, but the counter- jumper still bemoans the long hours of yore. It's no Cop in summer," they say. A signboard recently announced that the "Bran" of Cain was being shown within, at a local cinematographic performance. What a "barley" shame to mislead the public. Some people will sow" their wild oats," anyhow. Whilst standing in a fruiterer's estab- lishment, the other evening, we witnessed the smashing of two incandescent lamp shades, caused through over-heating. Near by a gramophone growled out, The shades of night were falling fast
