AMAZING NEW I-NVEKTION A FLYING TRAIN. A new and wonderful system, which, it us claimed, •wfll revolutionise high speed traction throughout the world, was demonstrated in London before mechanical experts of several of the most important English railways. This new system, the invention and discovery of a French scientist, M. Emile Bachelet, has at once elicited the offer of a great railway chief to lav down within five miles of London a «rcuu in o^dcr that the enormous speed claimed for it mi es an hour-may be tested. The system, as demonstrated by a model of largo size, did all that was claimed. Among its achievements were. A registered speed of 300 miles an hour was attained. Automatic propulsion and stopping ot .ue u, were secured.. The position of the car at any point during a journey was indicated by electric signals. Almost absolute absence of all vibration was Thi"new system is described as a railway that rum on a road bed of invisible impulses. The model, erected on four trestles, consisted of two pairs of rails—one to demonstrate the use of the railway for mail or mer-Wdise, and tne other for PaAsteeTcylinder in the one case and a cigar-shaped carriage in the other rested on eacii pair of rails, which were g-rooved. Above and in the centre oi the rails ran a single-grooved rail, in which rested a pair of guiders. M. B^ahelot switched on an electric current, and the machine, in each ca;e, rose some eighth of an inch from the rails, and ran along at a tremendous pace. As soon as the current was switched off the cylinder and the carriage came to instant rest. The principal is founded on the fact that certain metals, including aluminium, are repelled by the magnetic force Mowing from an electric coal ener- gised by an alternating current. All along the track at short intervals are what look like little stumpy yellow pillars. They are electric coals, the car is of aluminium, and as soon as the current is switched on the car is levitated. The car passes under magnets placed at longer intervals than the coils, and looking like the skeleton of a tunnel. These a.re solenoids or pulling magnet,. which are automatically ener- gised in succession, and draw the train along. The estimated cost of the Bachelet Levitated Railway is surprisingly low. M. Bachelet piacec it at d. per pound of merchandise ior 300 miles, or one hour's journey. The construction of a lino for mail purposes—the object to be first achieved-will be less than £ 5.000 per mile, while power hotises- one every 100 miles—are estimated to cost about E12,000 each. But the system is intended after further experimental work, to be utilised for i-ic carriage of passengers. It is claimed that it can be adapted to existing railway lines for the conveyance of people with perfect safety and at lightning speed, Without entering into scientific details, practical illustrations of what it is believed can be done by this system carry their own explanation. fhe conveyance of the mails, which are often congested, would be accomplished in the following times:- London to Manchester or Liverpool. 48 minutes. London to Fishguard or Plymouth, 45 minutes. London to Glasgow. 1 hour 15 minutes. London to Birmingham, 25 minutes. Calais to Brindisi, 9 hours. Paris to St. Petersburg. 10 hours. Local services could also be arranged by control of the electric current. Mails would in all cases be packed in a tube. locked and sealed, and delivered at their destination. Thus." said the inventor, a business man would not be kept waiting for his letters, cheques and bonds could be forwarded with- out irritating delay, and a vast amount of unoertainty and trouble avoided." In the new railway there are no locomotives, no engines, no wlieel-. and practi- cally no friction. 400-
IMPORTANT CARMARTHEN APPEAL JUSTICES DECISION QUASHED. On Wednesday, the Divisional Court in Probate Divorse and Admiralty, consisting of Sir S. T. Evans, President, and Mr. Justice Bargravs Deane. heard an Appeal from the decision of the Borough Magistrates of Carmarthen in the matter of Mrs. Margaret Howells. Mansel-street. Carmarthen, ver- sus Mr. William Howells, of Gilfach-v-Bettws, Tre- lech. The facts leading to the Appeal are as fol- ows:—Mrs. Howells brought forward a charge on the 29th December last against her husband Mr. William Howellsi that he had deserted her. The magistrates hearing the case were Mr. John Lewis (mayor) in the chair, Mr. T. E. Brigstocke. Ir. Bland Davies, Mr. Blagdon Richards, Mr. Henry Howell and Mr. Walter Spurrell. Mr. J. F. Morris appeared for the complainant, and Mr. T. Howell Davies appeared for the defendant. At the commencement of the hearing before the justices. Mr Howell Davies ak('d their decision on a preliminary point of law. He Qtated that the com- plainant had in June. 1898, taken proceeding* against the husband to establish constructive desertion of the complainant by her husband, and asking for an rder for maintenance, and that she be entitled to live separate and apart from him which were after a full hearing dismissed. As the parties had ever since 1898 lived apart. Mr. Davies argued that the complainant was stopped from giving the same evi- dence in the 1913 proceedings, as she had given in the' proceedings brought by her in 1898, and that the justices had no power to hear the complainant's case. It appeared that -Me.Brunel White, the clerk to the Borough Justicepr. had acted for the com- plainant in the 1898 proceedings, and in view of this the Berough Justices desired Mr. C. H. Merspan Griffiths, the clerk to the Cbunty Justices, to advise them on the point of law <nibmitted to them by Mr. Howell Davies. Mr. Griffiths thereupon acted as temporary clerk, and after hearing Mr. Davies' argument he decided against him. The case was then gone into by the Borough Justices and they found that the husband had deserted the wife, and made a maintenance order in her favour of 5s. a -,Week. From this decision the husband appealed. On the hearing of the appeal in the Divisional Court. Mr. Reginald Le Bas appeared for the apel- lant. Their Lordshiss hold that the decision of the magistrates was wrong1, and allowed th« appeal. Sir Samuel Evans remarked that it was after the' husband came into a little mGnny that the wife took the last proceeding, pleading desertion. Mr. T. Howell Davies. of Carmarthen, was solicitor for the appellant, and Messrs. Morris and Son*. Car- marthen. solicitors for the respondent wife. 4b,

LAMPETER DALIS FAIR.—Splendid moving pictures of the iJahs tair were exhibited at the Central Cinema on Monday, and attracted a record attendance. COUNTY COLHT.—Judge Lloyd Morgan held his County Court at the Town Hull on Tuesday, when a large number of case-a were dis.- posed of. A detailed report will appear in our next issue. CHURCH COUNCIL.—A meeting of the Church Council was held at the Church Hall on Tuesday evening, when the chair was taken by the Rev. Canon Camber-Williams, vicar. Several important matters were dealt with, and it was decided to sup- port the Financial Scheme of the diocese, the parish undertaking to collect JB60 per annum towards this good and deserving object. The Council have bought a splendid harmonium for use at the Church Hall services, which will be used for the first time next Sunday. AUCTION MART.-Mr. D. I Rees conducted a very successful sale at the Mart on Tuesday, when there was a good supply of cattle, sheep, and pigs. which were sold at the following prices :—Bulls, £ 18 to £ 25; bullocks and heifers, £ 16 to £ 24; cows and calves, E12 to £ 16; fat calces, E3 5s to £5 j fat sheep, 3 guineas to 60s.; ditto lambs, 26s. to 39s. 6d.; porkers, £ 2 to £3; bacon pigs, J62 5s.. to £5 5s. NARROW ESCAPE.—A tramping woman named Sarah Jones, of no fixed abode, was found lying on the railway near the crossing at Lampeter on Satur- day. but luckily was saved just in time from being run over by a train. She was evidently suffering from exposure and want, and was taken to the workhouse, where she was attended by Dr. Row- lands. Upon inquiring at the workhouse on Mon- day, our correspondent was informed that she was progressing favourably. REHEARSALS.—Two rehearsals in connection with the Baptist Chapels of Noddfa, Caersalem. and Bethel (Silian), were held at Noddfa Chapel on Sundays, May 3rd and 10th respectively. The sing- ing throughout was very good and showed signs of careful training. The conductor of the festival this year will be Mr. William Thomas, the well-known conductor of Treorchy, and it is hoped the festival will be a success. THE WORKHOUSE.—The ratepayers generally will be glad to learn that this institution is progressing favourably under the guidance and superintendence of Mr. and Mrs. Lewis, the master and matron. Arrangements are being made to supply householders of the town with handy bundles of wood at a fairi price, which will be a a great boon. An old stable has been converted into a well-lighted and comfort- able workroom, where several of the male inmates are set to work, and they appear happy and con- tented. Other men are employed in gardening, etc., and able-bodied female inmates, under the guidance I' of the matron, keep the place scrupulosulv clean and tidy, while every room is well ventilated. The inmates are evidently well cared for by Mr. and Mrs. Lewis, who have had a good exnerience in the past in looking after workhouse inmates, and influ- ence the inmates by kindness and firmness. A DRAWBACK.—Newspaper correspondents are not treated at Lampeter with the same courtesy as ob- tm:K'd elsewhere, and those countcted with public functions should bear this in mind. If a report is expected to appear in a newspaper, the representa- tive of that paper should at least be presented with a fre.> ticket instead of being expected to pay and report. Verb. sap. < MUSICAL SUCCESS.—We heartily congratulate Miss Lcwis( niece of Mr. Lewis Garth, upon her success in passing the recent junior examination of the Royal Academy of Music and the London College of Music with honours, obtaining 94 marks out of a possible 100. SoCIALISM AND CHRISTIANITY.—On Wednesday evening, the Rev. J. Lewis Donaldson, vi.-ar of St. Mark's, Leicester, addressed the students of St. David's College on "Socialism in its relationship to Christianity. The Rev. Dr. Bebb presided. The speaker dwelt exhaustively with his theme, and maintained that Christian Socialism was the most important factor for good in the present age. He illustrated his remarks by incidents gained from years of oxperi- once among- the submerged tenth. The address was much appreciated, and the rev. gentleman was warmly thanked for coming to Lampeter. TEMPERANCE.—Sir Stafford Howard, mayor of Llanelly, visited Lampeter on Friday, and in the evening delivered a lecture on temperance to the members of the College branch of the Church of England Temperance Society. The meeting was presided over by the Rev. Principal BhJb. Sir Stafford touched upon the evils of the drink traffic, and outlined reforms which were urgently needed to check drunkenness and its resultant miseries. His masterly survey of the subject and his trenchant style, aroused much enthusiasm, and encouraged his auditors to redoubled efforts on bonulf of the tem- perance cause. GAMES.—We are glad to find that local vricket lovers are banding themselves together. Meetings have been held, and a club has been formed, but some difficulty is being experienced in renting a field for the season. However, the promoters are hope ful of settling upon a suitable pitch in the near future. Once this difficulty is overcome, the rest will be easy. as there are plenty of players avail- able. CONTINUATION OF AN OLD CUSTOM.—The time- honoured custom of students sinking hymns around the quadrangle ''tank' on Sunday evenings during summer term is being maintained. It is an appro- priate and beautiful ending to the day's religious devotions. Would that the custom was more gene- rally observed. It is interesting to note that in most Welsh seaside resorts hymns are sung. at some con- venient centre, after the evening services are over. The effect, especially near the "C1, is one which must be heard to be appreciated.* In some places hymns are sung by choristers in boats, and to listen to the sweet strains which are borne inland by the rea- breez,-i is an experience which one doe« not readily forget. Perhaps, the custom of singing hymns near the sea or water has an interesting origin: if no, there are manv, including ourselves, who would be glad to know how the custom started, and to what source it can be attributed. TENNIS MATCH.—A match was played on Saturday between the Institute team and St. Davids College team on the latter s ground. The College won by six events to three, the scoring being as follows ;-11. Lloyd Williams and J. T. James beat Perrv Jones and Charlie Davies, 6-4, 6-4; H. Lloyd Williams and J. T. James beat Green and Philpin, 6-0. 6-3; H. Lloyd W ill&ma and J. T.

One of his hobbies was photography, in which direction he did some excellent work. It was to him we were indebted for the photo of the cen- I tenarian Joseph Glass, who was the first to be buried in the new church at Llansadwrn. He leaves a widow and several children, one of whom—a sOH-is BOW abtosd.

Both gentle- men of the deputation spoke, and put their case in a concise and lucid manner before the Council and retired.—After a lengthy discussion, mostly quite irrelevant of the question, the Council reserved their reply until a reply had been received to the com- munication recently sent to the Local Government Board.—While the deputation was being received some of the members of the Council attacked the water committee, and even stooped to personalities, to which the Rev. E. Aman Jones strongly objected. but no other reply other than that already stated was ,-ii-cn. The Foreshore.—The draft lease of the agreement between the local Council and the Board of Trade re the possession 0. the foreshore was presented and a committee appointed to go into it and report to a further meeting of th'^ Council.

J. Vaughan, O. T. Williams, and J. D. Jones as secretary, treasurer and chairman, respectively, were fortu- nate in securing the services of well-known and popular artistes with the result that tne singing was of a high standard of excellence, and was highly appreciated by the large audience. In the unavoid, able absence of Capt. Jennings, who was to preside, Distrct Councillor Evan Bowen was voted to the cha r, and carried out his duties in a enxlitable and happy mannert He was supported by Mr. J. Jones, D.C., Plas, St. Ishmael, the secretary of the Llande- feilog Agricultural Show. The singers were Miss Hannah Jones and Miss Hughes, Carmarthen; Miss Hilda Davies, Ferryside; Miss Williams, Llwynpiod; Messrs. V. Davies, Parcgwyn; B. Morgan, Croesy- ecilog; T. Williams.

Overseers: Llandyssul Town, Mr. Edward Davies, Rhondda House; St. David's Ward, Mr. John Morgan, Rock Mills: Pontshaen Ward, Mr. Edward Thomas; Blaenmene, Tregroes, Ward, Mr. Thomas Davies, Wetsyn. The assistant overSCQr and clerk to the council (Mr. David Davies. Pwllybragu) having resigned, Mr. James Jones, coal merchant, Llandyssul, has been selected to take his duties. HYGIENE.—At the Council School. Dr. Owen Morris, M.A., etc., of the King Edward Memorial, addressed the headmasterFi and assistants of the District Elementary Schools on School and General Hygienics, by arrangement with the County Educa- tion Committee. The weather proving favourable, a large gathering had assembled. THE DRAINAGE OF LLANDYSSUL.—At a meeting of the ratepayers, convened by the Parish Cou. cil, held at Pontshaen Schoolroom, the Rev. E. O. Jenkins, Llwyn, in the chair, to consider tne proposed drainage scheme in the town of Llandyssul; the esti- mate of the cost as prepared by the District Sur- veyor (Mr. Ed. Thomas) showed that the scheme as submitted to the meeting would cost £ 19" 18s. 9d. to carry through. The meeting, after passing a resolution objecting to contribute any portion of the cost, passed a further motion censuring the con- venors of the meeting (the Rural District Council- lors. Surveyor, and Clerk) for not attending or sending someone to explain the matter fully. A similar meeting held in the Council Schoolroom at St. David's was unanimous in its hostility, and strongly objected to contribute to the cost. This meeting strongly urired Llandyssul to adopt iirb- n powers. At the third meeting, held in the Town Ward, Mr. T. Evans. C.M., proposed Mr. T. Ii), Jones, as the oldest member of the Parish Council, be the chairman, seconded by Mr. Jenkin Jones. There was considerable feeling manifested 3. the absence of the local members of the Rural District Council, the Surveyor, and the Clerk, to explain what had been done so far. and what further was to be done. The scheme outlined in the estimate of a drain from R'chmond-square down to the road leading to Plasydderwen over the northern end of the bridge, and from Clifton-terrace to connect therewith was keenly criticised. It was considered j to be only a part scheme and quite unfair to the upper part of the town. It was agreed that it woold be only one expense to carry out a complete scheme at once. as the re-payment of the money borrowed for the work would be spread out over a term of 20 or 30 years, and the whole would be only one expense instead of several smaller expendi tures. A suggestion that the upper part of the town should be drained fiDet did not meet with favour, one difficulty" being the disposal of the re- fuse. This was met by the suggestion that it could be diverted down to the Richmond-square—New- road drain. Finally, on the motion of Mr. J. T. Thomas, Gwalia House, seconded by Mr. Herbert Jones, it was resolved by 16 votes to one (neutral) te forward a request te the Rural district CouneR to construct a drain from Well-street along the main road to the road leading to Plasydderwen, anL. that the scheme of partial drainage, proposed by the Council, be rejected. SENGHENTDD RELIEF [FUND.—Since the publication of the last particulars respecting the above fund Major Cass, D.S.O., Dol-llan, Llandyssul, has re ceived various additional sums which now brings the total to JE180 9s. Id. It is easy enough to preach humanity, but the gallant Major in his quiet unassuming way assists in every practicable possible manner to cheer the homes of the working man. May his worthy example be emulated.
LLANDOVERY MUSICAL.—MIK Molly Bilson, was the soloist 'at the Memorial Sunday School last Sunday. POLICE COURT.—On 'Friday, before Aldermen C. P. Lewis, and T. Watkins, Mr Edmond Williams, Relieving Oflicer, applied for a maintenance order against David Williams, Rhosybcdw, near Faldy- brenin. in respect to his mother now chargeable to Llandovery Union. The application was adjourned for a fortnight. Mr. Williams, made a similar appli- cation against Daniel Thomas, High-street, Moun- tain Ash, in respect to his mother, Eleanor Thomas, Rhandirmwyn. An order for Is. a week was made. There were no other cases.

DBATH8.—We regret to announce the death which occurred on Monday, of Mr. John Davies, Towy Villa, New-road. Deceased who had been ill for sometime had been for many years in the employ of the Joint Railway Companies at Llandovery, He was a member of the Rechabites, and had been Chief Ruler. He took a keen interest in the work of the cause, especially that connected with the Juvenile Tent, where he was always to be found at the weekly meetings, and in this connection his loss will long be keenly felt. He took great pains in training the children of the Salem Band of Hope preparatory to entertainments given by them. He leaves a widqjv to mourn her loss.—We have also to record the death of Mrs. Morgan, wife of Mr. Ben. Morgan, The Welsh Smithfield, which oc- curred on Tuesday morning, after a long and pain- ful illness. Much sympathy is expressed for the bereaved husband and children. STOCK SALE. Messrs. J.

Mr. Evans is at present serving as curate in the parish of Llanfabon. near Cardiff. He comes to Llan- dovery with very good credentials as scholar, musi- cian, organizer and preacher. He will not be able to take up his duties here until August, when (says the Llandingat Parish Magazine) we are sure the Church- people will give him, his wife, and two sons a very hearty welcome. GIFTS.—Mrs. Evans. The Grange, has very gene- rously furnished entirely a double-bedded room in the Church House. Mre. Pryse Rice, Llwynybrain, has sent a parcel of magazines and illustrated periodi- cals for the Reading Room at Church House. We should (says the Llandingat Parish Maga.zine) be very grateful if the who so kindly send parcels of this kind would help us by either sending a postcard to the vicar or attaching a label with name of the donor."

Coronation-road, Garnant.-As the defendant promised to pay &s. from now onwards until the arrears were paid up, the committal order was sus- pended for two months to allow him the opportunity of doing so. SOCCER."—During the past season the Amman- ford Association football team has done exceedinglv well, having only been defeated on six occasions. An exhibition game was played by the Llanelly Southern League team, who won by 5 goals to 2. The biggest defeat was inflicted by Morriston Juniors, who seored 7 goals to nil. In T,(-- matches Ammanford was only defeated on one occa- sion on their own ground by that almost invincible team.
