KIDWELLY NOTES Tho visit of the Musical Boys from Dr. Bar- nardo's Homes excited a great deal of interest in the town and district, and there was an excoik-nt attendance at each of the meeting's. The boys, with whom were Mr. Alfred J. Mayers, deputation secretary, and Mr. Aarcn, instructor, arrived in town on Saturday afternoon, and proceeded to the;r temporary homes, where they were hospitably entertained throughout their stay. The following ladies and gentlemen, who kindly provided the re- quired accommodation, deserve the thanks of all interested in the beneficent movement inaugurated by the late Dr. Barnardo for thtir disinterested generosity:—Mr. and Mrs. W. D. James, The Barbican, who had Mr. Mayers as their guest; Mr. and Mrs. James Williams. Pendre, with whom Mr. Aaron stayed; Mr. and Mrs. D. Davies, Park House, who accommodated four boys; Mr. and Mrs. W. Graveil, Gordon-terrace, two: Mr. and Mr?. F. Sheppard, The Bakery, two; and Mr. and Mrs. Ted Gower, grocers. Water-street, two. The first meeting of the series, a special picture service for Sunday scholarft, and young people, WaJ; held at Capel Sul on Sunday afternoon, when, in the absence of the Mayor, Mr. D. 0. Jones. Castle School, pre- sided. There was a splendid attendance. Mr. John Thomas, deacon at Capel Sul, opened the service with prayer in Welsh. Mr. W. D. James read a suitable portion of Scripture, which was followed by an excellently rendered solo by Mr. Mayers. After a few remarks by the Chan-man, and a selec- tion by one of the boys, Mr. Mayers delivered an interesting address entitled "From darkness to tight." A collection in aid of the homes having been taken. the boys gave a line selection ón the ocarina which was much enjoyed. The singing of "Abide with Me," and the pronouncing of the Benediction by the Rev. NN-. C. tonkins brought to a close a thoroughly successful service. In the evening the spacious chapel was crowded, and the meetinc. presided over by th" Rev. W. C. Jenkins, proved most inspiring. On Monday afternoon, there was a very large attendance at the Town Hall. when the Rev. D. Ambrose Jones. M.A.. vicar, was in the chair, and an excellent pro- gramme was rendered by the boys- The last meet- ing of the series was held at the Town Hall on Monday evening, when Mr. W. D. Jaitifts presided over a packed audience. The inadequacy of the hall was once more demonstrated, as scores of sympathisers had to be turned away at the doors. An appropriate address was delivered by the chair- man. after the singing of the hymn "0 Lord of Heaven." and the offering of prayer by Mr. Mayers. The programme, which was one of the best ever presented before a Kidwelly audience, in- cluded handbell, mandoline, sleigh lwll. and cornet selections. The Highland Pipers, in full dress, rjuite charmed the audience, and they had to respond to an imperative encore. A similar re- ception w,, accorded the olnymir of W elsb airs on the silver-toned chimes and the sailors' action song. Durftig an interval a powerful address on the work performed bv Dr. Barnardo and his successors was given by Nfr. Slavers. who concluded with an effective pp- rho> close of the meeting Mr. Mayer- expressed himself well pleased with the reception of himself and his party, who had been hospitably and generously treated by the townspeople. He thanked all who had contributed to tho success of the yi"it. making .special mention of his kind host, Mr. W. D. James, that night's chairman; the Mayor and Mayoress (Mr. and Mrs. G. E.

Boro' Stores, for the part he had taken in making arrangements for the visit; and to Mr. D. 0. Jones. Castle School, who had organized the Saturday col- lections in the town for some. years pa-t and al.-o had a hand in the preparations for the present visit.
