The annual general meeting of the "Sanitas" company was held at their Limehouse (London) £ j^tory on the J.9th inst., Mr. C. F. Kingzett, F.C.S., the chairman, presiding. The Usual dividend of 7à per cent. (which has been paid regularly for many years) was again declared, the of £ 3,000 being placed to Reserve Account, ~1,000 to Contingency Account, and £ 2,756 13s. "• carried forward. The Chairman directed atten- tion to the very satisfactory 'ncrease in sales of he Company's manufactures. The value of 'Sanitas Fluid" for preventing oral sepsis by its ^gular use as a wash for the mouth and teeth was being- more and more endorsed by the medical pro- 9_ fession and the public at large. In this respect it s ranks highest of all available antiseptics, in addi- tion to which its unique and non-poisonous charac- t-er renders it the only disinfectant suitable for general toilet and household employment. With Respect to "Sanitas Powder," the publicity that .1as been given to its value in the garden as a pre- V«ntive and protective ujrainst the ravages of slugs, nails. insects and other :oil pests, together with its ^°ntinuod popularity as a disinfectant powder for general use, has resulted in a largely increased con- scription. The importance of pure air was also re- marked upon, and reference was made to the report Recently issued by Dr. F. E. Scrase (Medical Officer Health for Hamnstead), pointing out the itn- P^tance of daily subjecting picture palaces to the erilising effect of sunlight. As this, however, is always possible, it was pointed out by MB. ngzett that the same or better result can be ob- t auwd by spraying the air of such places with "Sani- | t a s Fluid" bearing in mind that—as the "Lancet" Olnted out some years since—"there is no factor ^0re favourable to the successful Evasion of the VK*"111 body by disease-producing organisms than a the air is rendered stale, warm and muety."
BRYNAMMAN NOTES [BY 41 PAKK LANE."] As will be seen from the following extract, the late Mr. Frederick Oscar Jones, whose premature demise it was our gad duty to chronicle some time ago, had won a multitude of friends in South Africa as well as at his birthplace-Brynamman. The following obituary notice appears in the "Sun," a weekly whose sub-title is "The Jagersfontein and Fauresinith District Advertiser." "Some three weeks ago Mr. F. O. Jones arrived in Jagersfontein, and secured employment in the mine, but within a week from starting an illness seized him, and he was taken to hospital where he received all care, both from the staff and several people with whom he had come into touch during his short sojourn here. Being a good musician he had joined the local band, and members of this body as well as his fellow-countrymen sought to do their utmost for his benefit. He died on Saturday evening from double pneumonia, and was buried on Sunday afternoon, the band offering their last tribute by playing the "Dead March" from the hospital to the grave side, and there joining the choir in that solemn and appropriate hymn "Abide with Me." During the service in the church the Rev. Thorne referred feelingly to the young man being alone and practically among strangers. Mr. Jones was 29 years of age. and came from Bryn- amman, .South Wales, where his mother resides, and where he also has several sisters and brothers. The cortege was a large one, many of those preesnt attending in sympathy with a fellow being who had breathed his last far from home, and as a stranger in a strange land." Wreaths were given by Mr. and Mrs. T. Llew- elyn, Mr. Evan Dillwyn Llewelyn, Mr. L. Tascar Edwards, his fellov,workrnen the ten Welshmen of the Town, by the mine manager and his wife, and the nursing staff of the Cottage Hospital. It is difficult indeed for us to realize that euch a lovable soul as Fred has for ever gone from our midst. One could go on for hours extolling the merits of one whose life was a joy and a service to alT. and whose death seems to be as cruel as it was unexpected. May the sorrowing mother, sis- i(,rF. and brothers be comforted by the fact that. their grief is shared by all who knew the one who was loved so well." For over a year past scarlet fever and the measles have appeared to be endemic diseases at Brynamman. No sooner is one end of the village free from these dangerous and troublesome ail- ments than children at some other portion gf the place are stricken. It is a great pity that some- thing could not be done forthwith to stamp out from our midst these diseases which cause such anxiety to parents, and so much suffering to our children. Surely the resources at the command of our medical service are sufficient to cleanse the locality of scarlet fever and the measles. Small pox or the black plague would have required much more energetic measures, and judging from present experiences one is inclined to believe that any really severe germ-disease would have depopulated the neighbourhood before our health authorities had become awakened to their duties. An interesting event took place on the eleventh instant at the St. James Parish Church. Vostgate- on-Sea, Isle of Thanet, Kent. It vas a marriage between Sergeant Henley, Brynamman, and Miss Alice Maud Huckstep, daughter of Mr. Stephen Henry Hucksten, of Belmont Garlinge, Margate. The Rev. Dr. Moore officiated, the bride being given away by her father, while Mr. Albert Huck- step (the bride's brother) acted as best man. The bridegroom was in full military uniform, and he and "his bride were the cynosure of all eyes. The happy couple, who spent their honeymoon at London, were the recipients of many useful presents. Sergeant Henley's friends at Brynamman are pleased that he is to reside permanently in our midst, and wish him and his happy wife the utmost prosperity and joy. Mr. W. N. Jones offered for sale at the Farmere Arms Hotel. Brynamman, on Tuesday, the 18th inst., the freehold detached villa residence, known as "Uskdale." situate at Bryn Avenue, Bryn- amman, now occupied by the owner, Mr. Thomas Williams. The house is well-built and stands in its own grounds, and the premises have a frontage of 66 fret or thereabout to Brvn Avenue", and fitted throughout with electric light, etc. The premises also comprise a kitchen garden in good condition. The timber, waters, mines, stones, and minerals upon, in, or under all the property are reserved with full powers of working; and carrying away the same. Withdrawn at JB400. Mr. John R. Williams, solicitor, 2, Bank Buildings, Llan- dilo, and 4 Station Road, Brynamman, was solici- tor for the vendor. At a meeting held at, the Vestry Hall last Sunday it was unanimously decided that the Brynamman Choral Society shall compete at the Maesteg Eistedd- fod on August Bank Holiday. The test pieces are On Great is the Depth and The Sea holds its Pearls." and the prizes are respectively JE70, JB20, and £10. May good luck follow! At the time of writing it is not known what are projects of the Brynamman Philharmonic Society. Judging from the enthusiasm prevailing amongst the members and officials it is evident that this society also is not going to rest on its laurels. At Brook Drift, one of the Gwauncaegurwen Col- lieries, there is a horse that has been working under- ground for over twenty years. The animal is a splendid specimen of the collier" class, and although it has been working underground for this exceptional length of time, its coat does not show the least sign of any wound. On Saturday la-t, at Siloam, were interred all that was mortal of Mr. Henry Lewis, Glyn-road, who died at the Swansea Hospital, following an operation. The news of his demise came as a. sad shock, for even the most intimate of his multitude of friends. knowing that he had borne the shock of the opera- tion so very well, had not the least doubt that he I would be soon again amongst us. Indeed, as the Rev. J. Lee "Davies so feelingly remarked at the graveside, when seen at about ten minutes before death arrived, Mr Lewis appeared not like a person who was so soon to brave the King of Terrors, but as one who, judging from the wan little smile he bore on nis face, would be allowed to continue to play his splendid if unostentatious part in our midst. He had passed the allotted span, and in his time had been very prominent in our little neighbourhood. For some fourteen years he had with honour and respect held a responsible post as superintendent of the finishing department of the now dismantled Amman Tinplate Works. Later on, and until tho works were closed down, he had been engaged as an assorter. He was a person who abhorred all display, and it was characteristic, of him to request that when the time came for him to die he was to be buried without any of the hymn singing usual at the burial rites. The length of the funeral cortege, and the splendid tributes at the graveside showed that a good man had gone to his rest. It is the writer's sad duty to chronicle two other deaths. The second is that of David, the son of Mr. and Mrs. William Thomas, of Henryci Shop. This young man, who was about 18 years of age, was a victim of consumption. He was of a very winsome disposition, and had shown much artistic ability. The third death is that of Mrs. Walters, the beloved wife of Mr. Tom Walters, tinplate worker, Llandilo- road. The deceased lady had been ailing for some time. but. the news of her death were almost totally unexpected to all outside her immediate circle. Sho had proved herself to be a devoted wife, a loving mother, and a neighbour in the best sense of tho word. Deep sympathy is felt for the hsuband and children in their great sorrow. Last Saturday, at the Gowerton Eisteddfod, the famous little choir -o-i(iilctf,(i by Mr. John Clun Williams won the first prize for the best exhibition of discipline at a marshalling on and off the stage as if taking part in a musical contest.

GENERAL HEWS OF THE WEEK THURSDAY. At Aldershot yesterday the King and Queen wit- nessed an attack by the 1st Cavalry Brigade at war strength. In the House of Lords yesterday Lord Sudeley called attention to the Return on Museums, lately issued; Lord Inverclyde to Clyde control; and Lord Denbigh to the position of the Regent of Kedab. The Bishoprics Bill was read a third time. In the Commons, on the motion of Mr. Ponson- by, a Bill to provide for tue termination of here- ditary titles among his Majesty's subjects" was read a first time, and there was a debate on the financial resolution of the Home Rule Bill. Later there was a discussion on the Workmen's Compen- sation Act. FRIDAY. Many suffragists, ineluding Mrs. Pankhurst, were arrested during riots outside Buckingham Palace yesterday. The scenes occurred as the re- sult of the suffragist attempt to force through a cor- don of police a "deputation" to the King. In the House of Commons yesterday the Prime Minister announced that tne Home Rule Amend- ing Bill would be introduced in the House of Lords. This matter was discussed on a motion for adjournment, which was rejected on a division. The order for the third reading of the Home Rule Bill followed. Mr. J. H. Campbell, Unionist, rose to speak, but was not allowed to do so by his party, and for some minutes shouts of Adjourn stopped the pro- ceedings. The Speaker ultimately suspended the sitting of the House until to-day. A wild scene followed. The Tj*iiie-s Correspondent in Belfast states that there is grave fear of disorder arising from Nationalist jubilations when the. Home Rule Bill passes its third reading. Efforts for the preserva- tion of the peace are being made by Roman Catholic priests and the Ulster Volunteers. Princess Lowenstein-Wertheim crossed the Chan- nel yesterday in an aeroplane piloted by Mr. W. R. Ding. SATURDAY. In the House of Commons yesterday there was a debate on the Weekly Rest-Day Bill, the second reading of which was moved by Mr. Goulding (Worcester, Opp.). The Bill was rejected by a majority of 12. The "Times" Special Correspondent in Ulster describes the conditions which make Derry City the storm centre of the north of Ireland. Lord Milner, speaking at Oxford last night, re- iterated the Unionist demand that the Irish con- troversy should be submitted to the judgment of the people. The numbers of the Irish Nationalist Volunteers are growing rapidly. Irish Americans have pro- mised £ 20,(300 for the purchase of guns and equip ment. Evidence is given of the way in which an Act of Parliament is evaded and dangerous weapons sold to young persons under the name of toy pistols. The realizations of the Estate Market this week are £ 127,646, compared with L152,400 last year, and exclusive of L56,000 at nover square. Surrey beat Somer-d. :¡t Bath, yesterday, by four wickets.—At Bri, Warwickshire beat Glou- cestershire by ten ^icke;—Lancashire were all out for 144 at Northampton, and Northamptonshire scord 274 for nine wickets (Haywood 139).—The match between Hampshire and Yorkshire, at Southampton, ended in a draw; Denton and Hirst made centuries for Yorkshire. MONDAY. "The Times" Parliamentary correspondent stares that it is probable that the deadlock in tho House of Commons will be removed to-day and that there will be no further disorder. The division on the third reading of the Home Rule Bill. it is anticipated, will take place without debate, the House then adjourning for Whitsun. Mr. Masterman was defeated in the Ipswich by- election. Mr. Ganzoni (U.) being returned by a majority of 137 over both his opponents combined. This is the gain of a seat to the Opposition. The Times correspondent in Belfast describes the efforts of Unionists and Nationalists are making there to keep the peace during the present week. Mr. Gustav Hamel, who was. flying from Paris to Hendon on Saturday, has disappeared, and fears are entertained that he may have been carried out to sea. TCESDAY. Mrs. Mansell, at a meeting of the W omen's Social and Political Union yesterday, made a violent speech on the Buckingham Palace demonstration, and the mention of the King was greeted by the women with prolonged hissing and groaning. In the Commons, where there was a crowded House, the Speaker explained his attitude on Thurs- day last., and Mr. Bonar Law and Mr. Asquith spoke. The third reading of the Home Rule Bill was car- ried on a division by a majority of 77. The House adjourned at 7.17 until June 9. The Times Irish telegrams state that the antici- pation of disorder and riots consequent upon the third reading of the Home Rule Bill werq not realized. Large numbers of armed police have been concentrated in Ulster. Mr. Redmond issued last night a statement ex- pressing his confidence in the automatic appearance of the Home Rule Bill on the Statute-book, and appealing to Unionists for a conciliatory discussion of points on which they require further safeguards. The search for Mr. Gustav Hamel was carried on systematically throughout yesterday, but no trace of him was found, and the belief grows stronger that he has sunk with his aeroplane in the Channel. The trial of Colonel Wliitaker was opened in the hearing of the Army Canteens charges at the Central Criminal Court yesterday. At Harwich Regatta yesterday dIe race for the 23-metre class was won by White Heather, and Pamela was first in the 15-metre class, and Ma'oona won the handicap prize. Surrey scored 317 (Hobbs 100, Hayes 125) and Yorkshire 124 for two wickets at Bradford yesterday. At Leyton Middlesex declared their first innings closed with the score 464 for one wicket (Tarrant not out 250. J. W. Hearne not out 106), and Essex scorcd 173 and 44 for no wicket. WEDNESDAY. The Times Parliamentary correspondent re- views the history of the Session so far as it has gone, and oalls attention to some of the difficulties which the Government, with a weakened position in Parlia- ment and the country, will be called upon to face. Good order continues to prevail in Ulster. The desirability of a, uniform medical certificate form for the use of ponel doctors was discussed yester- day by the Insurance Advisory Committee. A scheme of co-operation between the Miners' Federation, the Transport Workers' Federation and the National Union of Railwaymcn is to be submitted to a joint conference in London next week.
LAUGHARNE NOTES The annual general meeting of the Tennis Club was held in the Town Hall on the 19th inst., when there was a fairly good attendance. Mr. Dempster being from home, wired his inability to attend. The chair was taken by Mr. A. W. Thomas. The chief business of the meeting was to elect officers, &c., for the season. It was reported that the ground had received the necessary attention, that the court was already marked, and play could begin immediately. The membership fees were fixed at 2s. for ladies and 2s. 6d. for gentlemen, it being distinctly understood that the. court was open to members only, and that payment of the annual subscription constitutes mem- bership. This means: of course "pay before play." A very hearty vote of thanks was. accorded Mr. Dempster for the use of the court, for which the committee pay—or ought to pay—one penny per annum. The officers appointed were as follows:— President, Mr. W. H. Dempster, J.P., C.C.; hon. treasurer, Mrs. Wilson; hon. secretaries. Misses Huband and W. Williams; captain of the club. Mr. R. H. Tyler; vice-captain. Miss Julia Jones. These with the following ladies and gentlemen constitute the committee:—Misses J. Wilkins, L. Tyler, Bessie Williams. G. Wilkins and Messrs. W. Jeremy, A. W. Thomas. H. Griffith, Ladd Thomas, W. T. Childs, and R. Bland.

LLANSTEPHAN NOTES Empire Day falling on Sunday last, 24th imt., the local troop of Boy Scouts under Scoutmaster Regi- nald Dolby, had a church parade at 11 a.m., The Scouts looked trim, smart, and proud of the uniform they wore. The Rev. J. M. James, B.A., vicar, preaching from the words Looking unto Jesus," at the close of his sermon devoted a few remarks more particularly to the Scouts by drawing attention to the Scouts law—Honour God; to cultivate earnest- ness, kindness, a cheerful spirit, to withstand tempta- tion firmly, to respect the aged and infirm, tender to animals, and never to disgrace the uniform which they had the honour of wearnig. The advice was impressive and most effective, and like the entire movement itself can only tend to the uplifting- of the young of the nation. On Tuesday at Llanybri Churchyard, took place the interment of the late Mrs. Anna Bow-en, relict of the late Joseph Bowen. who for many years in the distant past resided at Llanybri and Nolauds Lodge, Llanstephan. Deceased was a native of Llanstepliau, being a sister of the late Mr. R. R. Hughes, Laques Fawr. and had reached the advanced age of 93 years ere her demise in the house of her son-in-law at Gowerton, with whom she had resided for some years past. She leaves four sons and two daughters to mourn among them. Mr. Peter Bowen (son), Bryn- arlais, and Misses E. A. Bowen and A. J. Bowen (grand-daughters), and Mr. W. Lewis, The Stores (grandson); Mrs. Sarah Bowen, Belle Vue (sister), who along with Mr. J. R. Hughes. New York State, are now the only remaining members of the children of the late Mr. Peter Hughes, Laques Fawr. Signs of preparation for the coming season are visible all around by individual householders. A com- bination of ratepayers to effect a little clearance of the offensive rubbish deposited in prominent spots would also prove very beneficial to the village as indiscriminate dumping- is no attraction for anybody. Signs at each end of the Green by the sanitary authority are only treated with contempt, which is also the manner in which most sanitary matters arc, looked after in the rural districts. Signs of keeping abreast with the times are evident among the young and enterprising tradesmen. The latest step forward being adopted by Messrs. Thomas and Sons, carriers, who have purchased a powerful steam lorry for Their business, thus replacing the cumbersome gambo and horse, and which will enable them to perform their numerous calls with quickness and promptitude, to the satisfaction of all their clients. While upon occasions it is also intended to use it as a passenger conveyance. Its acquisition will also enable another coalyard to be opened in the village to the benefit both of the proprietors and the coal-using public. With the black diamonds at present prices it behoves us all to make enquiries for suitable residences somewhere nearer the' equatorial regions. The next improvement we anxiously await is the arrival of our morning mail in the motor-bike and side-car, skilfully pedalled and steered by friend David, who will have his general experience much widened and enlarged by the transformatoin into an uniformed Royal mail chauffeur, which he is patiently waiting for.

Vipi.-it.-A fcw days ago the pupils of the school took a very fine viper to the class. It was cap- tured by Panthwn. and measured two feet in length. It weighed four and a half ounces. and contained twelve oval-shaped soft eggs. We under- stand that the class enjoyed the observation lesson immensely.
LLANFIHANGEL-AR-ARTH OMISSION.—Tne name of Mrs. Jones, Pantglae, was omitted in the recent report of the Llanfihan^-el- ar-arth Eisteddfod, as one of the adjudicators in the prize bag and tea cosy competitions. We regret the omission as we understand that Mrs,. Jones gener- ously supported the eist-eddfod both financially and otherwise. ATHLETIC SUCCESS.—We have much pleasure ill again congratulating Mr. T. R. Ll. Jones, son of Mr. T. R. Jones. J.P.. C.C., Pantglas, Pencader, on his further success at the Lampeter College School sports on Saturday last. 23rd inst. Mr. Jones won the following events:—Long jump, high jump, u-nrt throwing the cricket ball, and thereby secured the championship silver cup. In the high jump he negotia- ted 5ft. 5ill" and he bids fair to be a fiucclful aspirant in the Welsh championship compet ition. I EI.FKUMENT. Tiie Rev. E.

NEW QUAY WATKE COMMITTEE—A meotmg of this Committee was held at the Tutorial School, when Mr D o Jones presided The deputation that had waited on the local Council presented their report, and stated that that body could not give any detlnJv ansiwer iraitil they had received a reply to their communication from the Local Government Board. A further deputation was appointed to wait on the Clerk to the County Council to se* if he would or give any further information as to the intention of the Local Government Board of compelling the eche mCl^ to un<3ertake some satisfactory water THE PUBLIC HOUSES.—Early, closing SEEMS t > contagious at the present moment. A movement Z now on foot to get all the public-houses witwT Urban area to close at 10 p.m. insrtead of 11 n J The matter has already had the attention of the local bench of magistrates ,and will be tn a before the close of the present licensing year** The churches embraced in the distrkt will' 'be "ralUT upon to support in the matter. We have ™ to believe that the majority of the publicana W-1111 welcome the change if brought about. SCOUTS.—The following officials have been ap- pointed in connection with the local trrwm if ScoutsPresident, Mr. J. Thoma, J.P., FrCJll- dolau: vice-president, Captain J. Thomas.

Lloyds Bank, and the Scoutmaster; hon. treasurer, Mr. D. O. Rees. MISSION VAN.-This van, which has been quar- tered here over the winter, starts on its compaign this week and meetings are held here nightly. WANTON MISCHIEF, -Complaints are made cf damage to the town seats. The matter was brought to the Council's notice on Teusday even- ing. and it was decided that the only course open was to take legal action against the offenders and to place the matter in the hands of the police. TR-wLiu,,s. -There were as many as eight Brix- ham trawlers anchored in the bay together last week.
Mr. Joseph Henry, chairman of the West Leeds Liberal Association, on Tuesday emphatically con- tradicted a current rumour that Mr. T. E. Harvey. M.P. for the division, was about to resign his seat io make room for Mr. Masterman.
Oil Wednesday of last week the Guild of St. lu.rtin-abody of Church workers—held their quar- terly meeting in the schools- Tea was partaken of at 6.30 p.m., after which the meeting proceeded to business, over which the president, the vicar, pre- sided. The Reading Room and Billiard Committee met in the Town Hall on Friday last to consider the ques- tion of new premises. Rev. J. R. Phillips occupied the chair. It was unanimously agreed to recommend to the Town Improvements Committee to take the Ship and Castle and appoint a caretaker, for the post of which three applications had been received. Messrs. Head, Dalton and Tyler were requested to interview the landlord as to when the premises could be entered, as the present unsatisfactory conditions render immediate removal necessary. Until then, members of the committee will continue to take charge of the room nightly, from 5 p.m., at which hour it was decided to open. It was a matter of regret to note at this meeting the absence, through illness, of the able secretary, Mr. Jeremy. We wish him a speedy recovery. Workmen have been busily engaged during the lust week in fixing new and additional telephone poles' in the town. Their appearance has not added to the beauty of the streets. Some have seen service else- where, one in particular, outside the Post Office, having countless stripes for doing duty." Any- how, those who have clamoured for a telephone call- office, which will shortly be an accomplished fact, ought to pass no comment upon the appearance of our streets, after the erection of tne poles. We can quite sympathise with those who are likely to suffer I tli,t inconvenience of such unsightly, even if neces- sary, erections, immediately near their dwellings. Wo trust the office, however, will prove of much service to the town and trade of the ancient town- ship. The annual festival of Sunday schools for the deanery will be held in Laugharne Church, on Tuesday of Whitsun week. This is for the English section, the Welsh festival taking place at Lampeter Vclfrey on the previous day. A very enjoyable dance was held in Brook School- room OIl Wednesday, 20th inst., when friends gathered in full force from Brook, Laugharne, and Pcndine. The success was solely due to Mr. Ren- frey and a band of willing helpers. Mr. J. Davies, Pendine, presided at the piano in Lis usual able manner. In the era of paid politicians, ninepence for four- pence, and bad landlords, it is refreshing to be reminded that it is all bunkum, bar the paid politi- cian. For instance, I learn that it is a kindly custom in many counties for landlords to take an interest in their tenants, and as a kindly custom is worth emula- ting, Mr. Ecdøs, the squire of Broadway, has through his agent, Mr. John Francis, invited the tenant farmers of the estate and their wives, head gardener, carpenter and mason, to spend a day at the Bath and West of England Show at his expense. It is quite an innovation as regards our ancient town- ship, and it will not only be appreciated by those most nearly interested in agriculture, but will be appreciated and applauded by every inhabitant, as he grasps the fact that we have a gentleman in our midst who takes a deep interest in the welfare of his estate, and doing so renders service to one and all; for as agriculture prospers here so do the trades- people feel its beneficient influence. This, however, is not the only thing that Mr. Eocles is doing to bring grist to the people of Laugharne. He is sparing nothing to bring his estate into model shape, besides adding tremendously to his private residence and grounds, which all means ninepence for nothing for the labourers of our fortunate township. The mansion grounds, rose gardens, and orchards are beginning to take shape out of chaos, and Mr. Grant Dalton may well sigh for the time when his onerous and ar- tistic work will be near completion. Some day the .gardens will be like fairy land and worth travelling far to see, let us hope that Mr. Eccles may of his good heart give us a glimpse when that looked for time arrives. As one man said to me about Mr. Eccles. but that is another story: perhaps I will tell it if Mr. Eocles forgives me for this article.
