—j——iTi—inTT—nni IIIII mi mmmamsmmmmmmmmm AMMANFORD'S MODERN THEATRE LORD DYNEVOR PERFORMS OPENING CEREMONY. ADMIRABLE PERFORMANCE OF "THE xVxiuDLEMAN." Thursday evening, the 14th inst., witnessed the opening of the Ammanford Palace Theatre, a magni- ticont structure built through the enterprise of Mr. Evan Evans, The Square, who is the sole proprietor. Erected on the most modern lines, and atiording excellent seating accomniodation for at least 1,200, this most up-to-date building will bear most favour- able comparison with the most modern of South Wales theatres, and is really an acquisition to the town. The opening ceremony was performed by the Rt. Hon. Lord Dynevor, who was accompanied by Lady Dynevor, Hon. MJTS. Bird ajid Sir fatafford and Lady Howard. Having been presented with a gold key by Mr. Hy. Herbert, J.P., his lordship observed that that was a red-letter night in the annals of Amman- ford, marking, as it did, the opening of that fine new theatre. He hoped there would bo thousands and hundreds of thousands of feet passing through the door, and that they would always have—and he was sure they would get it-a thoroughly enjoyable evening while in that theatre. He thanked Mr. Hy. Herbert most sincerely for the beautiful key with which he had been presented, and with the key in his hand he now declared the hall open, and wished good luck to all who might enter therein. Prior to the performance of The Middle-man," which had been undertaken on a lavish scale by the Ammanford I.O.G.T. Amateur Dramatic Society, the distinguished guests were conducted over the building, and, after the public had been admitted, speeches were delivered from the stage. An interest- ing prelude was provided by the presentation of a bouquet of choice flowers to Lady Dynevor by little Miss Gwenda Harries. Mr. Hy. Herbert, who presided, said he had great honour in introducing Lord Dynevor, who had so kindly consented to attend and perform the opening ceremony of that large and commodious hall. That kindness was characteristic of his lordship and his ,I I family, who had always shown themselves willing to help on a good cause, not only in the Ammanford district, but throughout the county of Carmarthen. Being the owner of nearly all the land in the town, Lord Dynevor took a great deal of interest in the welfare and prosperity of Ammanford. He had had the privilege of knowing Lord Dynevor for some time, and he could say that he had found him a perfect gentleman in every sense of the word a gentleman who was very glad to do all ho could for his tenants, and wAo was willing and anxious to do what was right and just and fair between man anu man. Lord Dynevor bore a very honoured name, having descended from that great man, Rhys np Thomas, and the Dynevor family were noted for their great works in the county. They were. also pleased to see Lady Dynevor present, as well as the Hon. Mrs. Bird, and Sir Stafford and Lady Howard, and hoped they should see them a little oftener amongst them in the future than in the past (cheers). Lord Dynevor, who was warmly greeted, observed they had met on a most auspicious occasion, namely, the opening of a new and large theatre for Amman- ford. He thought it was a real privilege to be. present on such an event, and was extremely grateful for the invitation and also to Mr. Herbert, who had presented him with a most delightful souvenir of the occasion in the form of a gold key, which, he could assure them, would be included among his greatest treasures, and be handed down to his descendants (cheers). The building of a theatre like that really did show the greatest enterprise by Mr. Evans, the owner, and Mr. White ,the lessee. Those two gentle- men—rightly or wroyigly-ba,(] full confidence in the people of Ammanford, and believed that the interest for their money was safe (laughter and hear, hear). He believed he was right in saying that that theatre would be used in the future chiefly for cinemato- graph shows. He knew what a delightful thing that was. and what a lot could be learnt from those filmir projected on the canvass. But to-night they were met to do honour to the Ammanford Lodge of the Independent Order of Good Templars and their Amateur Dramatic Society—(cheers)—who were going to give them a very fine play. The Middle- man." lie hnd been told that there were large num- bers of the society in Ammanford, and that every- body taking part on the stage would be a xneirjbfer (hear, hear). 'They were working hard and well in the great cause of temperance, and it was in order to increase their funds they were staging that play Tie thoucht their heartiest congratulations were due to Mr. Hiley Harries and his faithful band of col- leagues. He knew what it meant to get up a play of the kind. There were hundreds and thousands of small details to be arranged and settled quite apart from the of the play. Therefore they offered their congratulations to all of them (applause). Mr. Ben Johnson, as ^hief Templar of the Lodge, then presented Lord Dynevor with an enlarged framed photograph of the members of the Dramatic Society -,is a memento of the occasion. Mr. Sidney White, the well-known amusement caterer, who is the lessee of the hall, spoke a few words. Having been for so many years in Amman- ford, it gave him great pleasure to appear before them and voice his feelings towards them. He indicated that the entertainments which would be provided would be the best that could be got for money, and with such an excellent stage they would be able to effectively present the finest plays in the country. Of course they were entirely dependent upon the patronage and support of the public, and he could assure them that, with their co-operation, they would be able to bring to the town some first- class companies (cheers). Proposing- a vote of thanks to Lord and Lady Dynevor, Sir Stafford Howard congratulated those concerned on the very commodious and excellently- appointed building they had put up, which would, no doubt, become a very attractive place, and he hoped that it might turn out to be a great success. To him the occasion was a very interesting one. In the first instance he was pleased to be present in order to have the pleasure of meeting Lord Dynevor, who was always to- the front on an occasion like that. when the interests of his neighbours were concerned (cheers). His second reason for attending was be- cause those who were going to entertain them were members of that great temperance Order the Inde- pendent Order of Good Templars (hear, hear). Some people seemed to think that teetotallers were miserable, haggard, distressful, irritated creatures, who could not enjoy a joke, or who could not hav" any interest in life at all. He was sure that idea was going to be disposed of that night, and felt pleased that Good Templars, whom he always liked to support were exercising their abilities, and were capable of producing a first-class plav of that kind. Thirdly, he came there to see the play, which he had read and heard a great deal about. Not only was it a recreation to witness a good play, but a very fine education, and he trusted that the entertain- ment that might take place within that large theatre would be a considerable benefit to the town of Ammanford (cheers). Mr. Hiley Harries, in seconding the vote of thanks, intimated that as soon as he approached Lord Dynevor upon the matter, his lordship very readily consented to perform the opening ceremony, and said he was only too pleased to como to do any. iiing he possibly could to promote the interests of rhe Good Templars of Ammanford (hear, hear). Perhaps it would not be out of place for him to state that the Dramatic Society had for the last five months met three nights a week to practice the play, and he felt sure they would listen to them with all patience and with all consideration (cheers). THE PLAY. One is tempted to say that the standard of the acting was not far from the standard of this admir- able play of Mr. Hy. Arthur Jones, and tHe Amman- ford I.O.G.T. Amateur Dramatic Society are to be highly complimented upon their stirring presenta- tion of an arresting drama. From the rise to the fall of the curtain interest never flagged, and the round after round of cheering which the actors were accorded at the close of each performance were eloquent proofs of the public's high appreciation of their efforts. It is not often that a band of amateurs attempt anything so ambitious, and rarer still achieve success, but it can fairly be said that, under the splendid leadership of Mr. Hiley Harries, this society has shown itself to be possessed of dramatic talent of no mean order. The cast of characters was exceliently arranged. Mr. D. J. Edwards took chief honour in the role of Cyrus Blenkarn "—a most difficult character to pourtrav, in as much as he is a fool and a genius at the one and same time; but Mr. Edwards' representation—pathetic, stirring, and wrathful, but forgiving—proved a magnificent piece of acting. The characterisation of "Joseph Chand- ler" by Mr. D. J. Gregory was very natural and realistic, while Capt. Julian was exceedingly well played by Mr. Hiley Harries. Mr. R. S. John, as Batty Todd," had the merit of being clever and amusing I Miss Edith Hughes, as "Mary Blenkarn." exhibited really fine acting; while Mr. Ben. J. Johnson and Miss Annie Davies fairly brought down the house" in the only light side of the piece: and uproarous applause greeted their acting. The minor parts were equally as good as the prin- cipals, but for their parts did not afford them the same scope. They were Messrs. D. A. Thomas, R. Gwynne Richards, Evan Lewis, T. H. Allen, Misses Gwladys Davies, Hannah Walters, Katie Watters, Cassie Matthews, and Evelyn Meyrick. A capital programme of music was provided during the short intervals between the acfas under the directorship of Mr. Tom Thomas. One must not forget to mention the names of the painstaking sec-i retaries, Messrs. D. Emlyn Davies and J. A. Hyams, who threw themselves heart and soul into the work. The cat was as follows:—Cyrus Blenkarn, Mr. D. J. Edwards; Joseph Chandler (proprietor of the Porcelain Works), Mr. D. J. Gregory; Captain Julian Chandler (his son), Mr. Hiley Harries; Batty Todd (Chandler's manager), Mr. R. S. John; Jesse Pegg. Mr. Ben J .Johnson; Sir Seaton Umfraville, Mr. D. A. Thomas; Daneper (a reporter) and Post- man, Mr. R. Gwynne Richards; Vachell, Mr. Evan Lewis; Epiphany Danks (of Gawcott-in-the-Moors), Mr. T. H. Allen; Mary and Nancy (Blenkarn's daughters), Miss Edith Hughes and Miss Annie Daries; Mrs. Chandler, Miss Gwladys Davies; Maud Chandler, Miss Hannah Walters; Lady Umfraville, Miss Katie Watters; Felicia Umfraville, Miss Cassie Matthews; Phoebe (maid), Miss Evelyn Meyrick. The programme, which was most artitsically got up, was executed by Messrs. Jones and Mainwaring, printers, Hall-street, Ammanford. It was admitted on all hands it was the best of its kind ever seen in Ammanford.
CARMARTHENSHIRE ANTIQUITIES THE MODERN INVADER. At a meeting of the Antiquarian Society held in the society's apartment on Frdiay evening. Mr. E. V. Collier, chairman, presiding, the following resolu- tions were unanimously car ried:-Tbat the Carmar- thenshire Antiquarian Society enters its t'trongpst protest against any advertising boards whatever being placed in front of the ancient town wall on Castle-hill, thereby distracting greatly from the dignity of the approach to the town from the bridge. It notices that three boards have already been placed in that position, and others will possibly follow.—That copies of i^.ese resolutions be sent to the Royal Commission of Ancient Monuments in Wales, to H.M. Office Works, to the Advisory Com- mittee for Ancient Monuments in Wales, to the chairman of the Carmarthensbire County Council, and to the Mayor and Corporation of the county borough of Carmarthen. 2. That the Carmarthenshire Antiquarian Society regrets that it has again to enter its strongest pro- test against the filling up now going on in the ditch of the Civil War Bulwarks in Morfa-lane, and that information of what is being done be at once com- municated by the secretary of the society to the Royal Commission of Ancient Monuments in Wales. to the Advisory Board of Welsh Antiquities, and to the Mavor and Corporation of the county borough of Carmarthen.

FROM THE CARMARTHEN JO-UR.NAL," jbiiiDAY, MAY 20, 1814. On Sunday last, a collection for the relief of the distressed Germans, was made at the doors of the Parish Church of St. Peter'-s, in this town, previous to which an appropriate and deeply affecting dis- course was delivered to a numerous congregation, in a very impressive manner, by the Rev. W m. Higgs Barker, our venerable and worthy Vicar, who°took for his test, Ecclesiastes xi. 2, "Give a portion to seven and also to eight; for thou knowe^t not what evil shall be upon the earth," The col- lection as a congregational one, was highly credit- able to the place, amounting to no less than 341. 17s. Collections for the same benevolent purpose have also been made at the Wesleyan, and Calvinistio Chapels; and at the Baptist Meeting-house, in Priory-street, in this town. As a gratifying instance of longevity, accom- panied by strength of body and mind, we are in- formed that the Rev. John Evans, the venerable Vicar of St. Mary's, Cardigan, being in the 88th year of his age, performed the whole duty of that church, in English and Welsh, on Sunday last, to the general satisfaction of a numerous congrega- tion. We have lately had the satisfaction of seeing several of our countrymen, who, in consequence of the happy change in the Government of France, were released from captivity, and are now returned, to enjoy with their families and friends the bless- ings of liberty, peace, and tranquility. In the Court of King's Bench, on Wednesday se'nnight, Mr. Abbot obtained ft rule to show cause, why a writ, in the nature of a quo war- ranto should not issue, calling on G. Ponson to shew cause by what right he exercised the office of Mayor of Aberystwith. By the Charter of Aberystwith, it was regulated, that no person under the age of 21 should be qualified to serve the office of Mayor; and also that the election should take place in less than one month after Michaelmas day. Now. his affidavits stated, that at the time of his election, Mr. Ponson was not 21 years of age. and also that the election did not take place till the 28th of Ocober. An order has been issued by the Secretary of War, that all militia Serjeants who have served 20 years, and had retired upon 6d. per day, are in future to receive Is., and those after a service of five years. to receive 6d. of 10 years, 8d. 15 years lOd. The following of the magnificent Tower lately erected h ir William Paxton, in Middleton Hall Park ajvr.eMrs in that truly interest- ing publication, The Beauties of W ales, from the able pen of our esteemed countryman, the Rev. Thomas Rces. The tower lately erected here, after an elegant design by Mr. Cockerell, is entitled to particular mentioH. It is situated at the northern extremity of the park, on an eminence that immediately overlooks the vale of Tywi, and commands a pros- pect of prodigious extent. The exterior form of the building is triangular, to the height of two stories; where the walls terminate in an embattled parapet: and at each of the angles is a circular tower, forming the interior into a hexagon. These towers are continued several feet above the first parapet. The upper story is hexagonal both with- in and without, and rises majestically from the triangular part of the structure, communicating an interesting and picturesque effect to the whole. On the ground floor are three spacious arches, one in each front, which admit the passage of carriages. The next story is a lofty and sumptuous banquet- ting room; and the upper story is taken up by a large apartment, designed for a prospect room, whence the surrounding country may be viewed in every direction, to the greatest advantage. Upon the summit of the building is a flat roof, which is also accessible to visitors. The tower is dedicated to the memory of Lord Nelson; and the upper apartment, when completed, will contain some appropriate devices. One of the windows is to be composed entirely of painted glass: the centre pane will consist of a portrait of the hero; another pane underneath will exhibit the cockpit scene, repre- senting him in his last moments, and another above, will comprise the emblematic representa- tion of his ascent to immortality: the subjects are taken from Messrs. Clarko and M' Arthur's splen- did history of his life, and executed by Mr. Grey. The following inscription, from the classic pen of a noble Lord, is also to be placed on a marble tablet, over each of the grand entrances, on the exterior of the building:- Duci Invicto Vice-comiti Nelson, ob res Ad Nili ostia, ad Hafnise Arces, Ad Gaditanas orae, proeclarissime gestas; Ob Imperium Maris Suis ubique vindiciitum; ob mortem quam non suae glorise Patriae vero Europseque intempostivam Victor obiit, Hanc "eln tantse Virtutis non immemor ( posuit Gulielmus Paxton Anno.* In digging the foundation for this erection, the workmen discovered the fragment of an ancient war instrument, resembling the head of a spear or javelin, and about nine inches in length; it is made of a mixed metal containing a large portion of copper or brass. The sera to which it is to be ascribed is not yet determined; but from the state in which it was found, it had evidently lain in the ground during some centuries. To the invincible commander, Viscount Nelson, in commemoration of deeds most brilliantly achieved, at the mouths of the Nile, before the walls of Copenhagen, and on the Shores of Spain; of the empire everywhere maintained by him over the seas; and of the death, which, in the fulness of his own glory, though untimely for his country and for Europe, conquering he died; this tower was erected by William Paxton, A.

Mr. William Owen Pugh has furnished the following Welsh translation of this inscription,- Coffa yr arwr diorthrcch-y Llyngesydd Nelson- am orchestion clod forusa f, -wrth aberodd Nil, wrth gaorau Copenhagen—a morlanau Yspaen—am honi gorfraint y morodd—ar bob rliyw droion;—ac am ei angeu.-vi- gogoniant ei wlad ei hun—as Europa hefyd,—er mai anmhrydlawn,-a fu yn orfloeddus; —yr hon adellind-i arddangaws y c.yfryw ddewr- edd.—a scilies—Gwilvm Paxton, B.

I AMMAN VALLEY INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL A.meeting of the Governors of the above School was held last week at the Ammanford Council School, Aid. sr. N. Jones, J.P.. Dyffryn, presiding. THE NEW SCHOOL. It was reported by the Building Committee that Mr. John Lloyd. who had leased a plot of land on the north side of the school, would not surrender the plot with a view to the Governors acquiring it, and it was therefore agreed to build on the original site. The Chairman said tho Education Committee were agreeable, and the Board of Education had ap- proved. It was stated by Mr. J. W. Nicholas (County Council clerk) that the Governors could go on without any hitch, and that they could now call the architect, and advertise for tenders. ;J as to proceed ¡ with the new school at once. The Rev. W. Williams asked if the proposed building would interfere with the permanent one. I In reply the Chairman said that this building was more or less permanent. It was the wish of the inhabitants ot the Valley that they should go on, and this building would last 60 years; therefore they need not worry much about a permanent building. SALARIES. It was agreed to advertise for four masters and three mistresses, making, with the headmaster, a staff of eight. A discussion ensued as to the salaries and ultimatelv it was decided to fix on the following scale .-—Science master and mathematics master. £ 140 each; another master. £ 130; manual master. £ 120; domestic mis- tress, £ 100: and the two form mistresses. £ 120 each. LLANDILO TEACHERS. The Chairman said there was an honourable under- standing between the Education Committee and the Llandilo School that they should take over all teachers who had to leave Llandilo in consequence -of this new school being started. It appeared to him they ought to keep to that undersanding as far as they possibly could, and, if they found later on that the teachers were no good to them, they could get rid of them. Mr. B. R. Evans stated they could not offer them the positions unless they applied. The Rev. W. Thomas said they ought to han & free hand in that matter. The Chairman said he hoped that they, as mana- gers, would take into consideration that understand- ing- but they would ignore that for the moment, and let the teachen apply. This course was agreed to.

LAUGHARNE NOTES Although not definitely decided, it appears practi- cally certain that the Social Club will remove into more convenient premises at an early date. Certain events which have recently taken place, render it absolutely necessary to make new arrangements im- mediately. Expressions of deep regret were general in the me district when it became known that Rev. John Price, Rector of Llandawke and Pendine, was shortly to remove to Talley. Mr. Price has become exceedingly popular amongst all classes, and his labours in the parishes have been much appreciated as is evident by the large congregations which may be seen in Pen- dine Church any Sunday. We heartily congratulate Mr. Price on his preferment and sympathise sin- cerely with his parishioners in the severe loss which they will sustain. From returns just issued by the Rural District Council and Board of Guardians, we are pleased to note that our able and respected representative—Mr. John Jone-s-omilpi- a very high position respecting attendances at meetings at each of the above. This ic certainly an evidence of the interest which he takes in his. office. The fine weather has brought with it the dust nuisance. This formed the subject of much debate and correspondence some time ago at the meetings of the Town Improvement Committee, but we have heard nothing of it lately. Has it dropped or may we look forward early to some remedy?

The progress or development of large towns and cities is frequently reported in the press, but steps in the onward march of improvement by the smaller villages of rural population are generally treated be- neath notice. Perhaps it will not be altogether uninteresting to mention one little town in the Prin- cipality which of late years seems to be forging ahead with the times Within the last quarter of a cen- tury, Newcastle-Emlyn. known in the past for its pretty surroundings of woodland, meadow and I stream is gradually becoming attractive in itself. The old dilapidated cottages, some of which were covered by thatched roots, are with one or two exceptions now slated or tiled and converted into edifices of no mean pretensions, which proudly rear their substantial fronts as if inviting- the passer-by to behold them; and its principal streets,—now con- siderably broadened and stretching from Adpar to the Railway btation—with its new banks, hotels, and shops, presents quite an imposing appearance. being lit upon dreary winter nights, by the cheery glow of the electric light-a boon, especially apprecia- ted by the old Sabbath folk, who in days of yore received bangs and bumps in the dark on their way home from divine service. These modern innova- tions when compared with those of larger towns are of course nothing abnormal, but they at le&st entitle the promoters to exclaim with the French, nous avons change tout cela," even though there still remain on the landscape one or two blots, not the least of them being the Parish Church itself, built. but a little over half a. century, and resembling nothing so much as the legendary dragon which flew over the castle in bygone age-, but luckily disap- peared in the water- of the Teifi. Even this eye- sore, it is understood, will not continue much longer, as strenuous efforts are at last being made fo have it substituted by a Church of greater archi- tectural beauty—a feat not difficult to accomplish provided fund* be forthcoming.

THE UNIONIST PARTY AND HOUSING (By S. Tudor Hanks). Your Brynamman correspondent in hif notes last wpek expressed the wish that the Unionist parts- would seriously take up the question of housing. May I say at once that it is the Unionist party we have to thank for the far-reaching measures alt",ady on the statute book with reference to housing. I will enumerate a few of these measures which may not be gejierally known to be acts of the Unionist party. 18 5-g.-Artisan Dwelling Acts (England and W ales). 1875—98.—Artisan Dwelling Acts (Scotland). These acts were framed to enable public bodies to build proper housei for the working olamen. 1885—90.—Housing of the working classes Acts. To ensure healthy houses, to promote the erection of cheap houses (that is. houses which could be let at a low rental), and to simplify the law. 1899.—Housing of the working classes Act. To empower local authorities to lend money to enable cottagers to become owners of the houses they occupy. (The measure referred to by your corres- pondent). 1903.-Housing of the working classes Act. To ease the financial position of local authorities in regard to housing schemes, and to provide for the summary closing of insanitary houses, incapable of improvement. 1 think this will suffice to prove the truth of the following stament :From the day of Diaraeb till now the provision of better homes for our countrymen has been the constant aim of the Unior- ist party. (Mr. Bonar Law, "History of Housing Reform. ") I am not going to assume that the Housing- ques- tion has yet received adequate attention, and later on I shall prove to your correspondent that the Unionist party have already adopted as a plank in their construction policy what he asks for. We must, however, first consider what are the mam causes of the present shortage of houses for the working classes. I assert that the greatest cauee is the effect of the 1909 land taxes. It you take the statistics of housing for the last 10 years you will readily see that from the middle of 1909 onward there is a far greater shrinkage than ever before. How can anyone expect a man to enter into specu- lative building when he knows that on the sale of the property there is an item of 20 per cent to be deducted by the Government (called Increment Duty) from his profits. Again you cannot expect a landlord to builinew cottages upon his estate, and in other ways to im- prove them when he knows that instead of reaping an advantage from such improvements he will be taxed for them. Such then is the roblem, and we have only the hen-roost robbing Government to thank for it. The Unionist party anticipated the result-s of the 1909 Budget, and therefore they have the remedy. Space will not allow me to elaborate the scheme. but the outline of it is that power shall be given to local authorities to acquire land at market price for the building of houses. That any workman, artisan or agriculturalist shall on evidence of good charac- ter be able to borrow from the State at a low rate of interest the full purchase price of his bouse. The same applies to farmg and small holdings. In conclusion I would remind your Brynainman correspondent that the Unionist party have three times introduced a housing bill within the last three years. (Sir A. Griffiths Boscawen's Bill). I notice in Sir A. Mond's report of the land and boos, ing inquiries in Wales that the propositions pL;t forward to eradicate the present shortage, etc., js nothing more or less than a copy of the Bill re- ferred to. Practically the whole of the housing work has been done by the Unionist party with the exertion of the Radical Act. 1909. which facilitated the demolition of insanitary dwellings, but made no proper provision for building new ones to replace the others. The Unionist party are ready with their Bill, and if it is not passed in the present Parliament it will be one of the first to be pacncd by tbe next Unionist Government.

ment has -been effected, perhaps the Great Western, Railway Company MAY feel disposed to encourage local enterprise so far as to dispense with ttie dim religious light of their old-fashioned oil-lampo at the station, and substitute electricity whereby the little town will have advanced very materially and be encourag-ed in the near future to extend itself to 11 far as Drefach and Velindre, two important centres of woollen industry. In a commercial age, when public spirit (if it can be so designated) is often engendered more with a view to money-making than less sordid objects, it may be waste of time to allude to sentiment, but a passing reference even to the little town's romantic interest may not be entirely out of place, as it has a history of which its inhabi- tants if not Wales itself might feel proud. Was it not here Dafydd ap Gwilym passed his boyhood days. and are not its noted fairs which he attended times without number referred to by the poet? Is it not stated, even at this remote period (tbough the fact can be taken cum grano salis ") that the same old oak-tree still remains in the Castle grounds, in whose branches he lay hid. while numerous lady victims sat around in expectation of meeting him by appointment? Was not this castle itself, if not the abode at least part of the estate of Sir Rhys ap Thomas, over whose body Henry VII. stepped ashore and caused the establishment of a Tudor Dynasty? and to come to more recent periods, did not Sir Walter Scott refer to Dinas Emlyn" and its daughters so fair in his sweet poem "The dying bard's farewell to his harp"? and is not thip little hamlet the former home of one who by her idvllic writings drew attention to the charms of her native country wherever English is read. and the birthplace of bards and musicians without number? Surely if the air. the hills, the mountains and valleys could infuse such delightful inspiration into the hearts of the few, that fact should appeal to the patriotism of the many. not to limit their improvements to ordi- nary bricks and mortar: for progress in the latter direction is self-evident, but. like the rest of Wales. it is lamentably wanting in attempts to record or preserve the memory of the past. and until something is done in that direction, it will never have proved itself worthy of its ancient history or letters.
