A PI9HEER MISSIONARY FROM CARMARTHE P, SHIRE MET LIVINGSTONE AND STANLEY IN CENTRAL AFRICA. One of the pioneers of missionary work in Central Africa has just passed away in [Minnesota, U.S.A., in the person of the Rev William Griffiths, who devoted many ■yea'-s to mission work in Ujiji and Tan- rsfanvlka 'Central Africa). Born at Glan- m^ilv.-ch, Gwynfe, Carmarthenshire, he .was a member of Capelmaen Congrega- tiona'. Church under the pastorate of the Rev. W. Thomas, Gwynfe, and, educated at the Presbyterian College, Carmarthen, and the Western College, Plymouth, he was ordained as a missionary at Cape!maen in 1879. A few days later he sailed for Cen- tral Africa, the sea voyage alone in those days taking some months to accomplish. He was a nephew of the late Rev. David Griffiths, the first missionary to set foot in Madagascar, and of the late Rev. Dr. Gri- ffith John, D.D., of China. Blessed with a strong constitution and a fine physique, Mr. Griffiths seemed particularly cut out for missionary work. The nature of the work and the climatic conditions, however, we-re a great drain on the best of constitu- tions, and as a consequence his latter years were devoted to home mission work in Dakota and Minnesota, in the United States. It is interesting to note that it was in the district covered by William Griffiths that H. M. Stanley found Dr. Livingstone, and he had the good fortune to meet both men at the time. A cousin of the mis- sionary is the Rev. D. A. Griffiths, Troed- rhiwdalar, ex-chairman of the Welsh Con- gregational Union. -0.

NEED OF MORE PLOUGHING ADDRESS BEFORE CARMARTHEN- SHIRE WAR AGRICULTURAL COMMITTEE. Mr. R. G. Stapledon, M.A., of the Board of Agriculture, addressed the Carmarthen- shire War Agricultural Committee at the Guildhall, Carmarthen, on Saturday on the (question of grass lands. Mr. Pen Evazij, Gwastod Abbot, presided. Mr. Stapledon said farmers were asked to make a stupendous endeavour to got a tremendous amount of grass land ploughed up during the next few months, because no doubt the nation was gorng to be in urgent need of bread stuffs. The more grass land they ploughed up the more they wanted to concentrate upon what they left behind so as to make it compensate for what they were going to plough up. Referring to the relationship between grkss land and land under the plough, he said they wanted to realise that good grass land made the best arable land afterwards. If I were going to plough up grass land it must be four years old. and then it would have its maximum manurial value. It was very important that a propaganda should be set on foot to improve grass land. If they worked on a scheme that made for an abundance of white clover, they were working for a fertile farm. There was a great deal written against the propaganda for ploughing up grass land, but the writers forgot that we must plough it irp in order to row more wheat and corn. In his opinion, the ploughing up of poor grass land was the best way of getting good grass land. That was a point often overlooked. The ;reai ploughing propaganda was not only going to yield the crops we wanted, but was going to make the land bettor grass land. Two chief enemies of orrass land were gcrse and bracken. No doubt an extensive echeme of improving gi-ass land waa going to take place in Wales Perhaps the cheapest way of getting rid of bracken was to cut it once a year in the first week of July. Perhaps it would be more practical to cut it once this July and once next year. They might follow that up by putting sheep to graze on that land and it might be that the bracken would be got. rid of. In his opinion much of thcir bracken hillsides should be enormously im- proved by dressings of basic slag-impi-oved to such an extent that the land would carry sto?k as well 96 sheep after the bracken was got rid of. With regard to gorse a certain amount of it eras useful in hilly districts to shelter the sheep, but to have whole ;hills.idee of go".e was tremendous waste. Experiments made showed that the best way to get rid of gorse was to burn it in July. A tremendous curse of grass land was ''yellow rattle." About six and ten cwt. of sajt simply killed yellow rattle right off. There must be thousands of acres of meadow land in Wales almost ruined by "yellow rattle." He considered it to be the worst weed 8n grass land in Wales. Mr. Stapledon gave technical advise as to the best way of destroying other deterrents of the soil, and said it appeared to him that much of the hilly land in Wales could be improved considerably. He hoped the Government would take steps to entire that wild white clover was harvested in a big way. The Chairman admitted he was iather puzzled about the propriety of getting Mr. Stapledon to address them at present on grass land, but after hearing such an in- structive address he now saw that the more land they ploughed up for corn the more they wanted the grass land to carry as much stock as possible. He had carried out almost everything which Mr. Stapledon advocated and they had been quite success- ful. Mr. W. Harries (Dryslwyn) asked if "yellow rattle" was not destroyed by farmyard manure. Mr. Stapledon—"Vou think you have des- troyed it, but "yellow rattle" is still there. Mr. Harries spid his experience was that by giving plenty of farmyard manure to the land for two or three years "yellow rattle" would not be .seen again.

Griffiths, Ardwyn; T. R. Jones. Pantglas; E.i Bowen, Llandefeilog; and T. PhiUips, Gilfacnygcstyn; together with the officials. IMr. Jas. Phillips, the retiring chairman,, proposed that Mr. Dd. Davies, Rhyblid. the vice-chairman, be chairman for the ensuing 1 year, and this was unanimously carried. Having taken the chair, Mr. Davies re- turned thanks for the honour conferred upon him. The County Council, he said, had lost through death during the last twelve months as many members as they had lost in the last twenty years. Referring to the work of the Council he said he had no new policy to suggest, but only to follow their old policy. They had always aimed at efficiency with the means at their disposal and he hoped the policy of the past would be the policy of the future. Although agri- culture was an industry that employed twice as many men as any other industry, it had not Had much place in their councils and Parliament. In future he hoped it would command the attention, not only of County Councils, but of Parliament, and that something effectual would take place. He congratulated the War Agricultural Com- mittee on the good work it was doing in order to increase food production. On the motion of the Chairman, seconded by Mr. Jno. Lloyd, a hearty vote of thanks was accorded to the retiring Chairman. Mr. Jno Lloyd proposed the Rev. R. H. Jones, Llarilgendeirne, as vice-chairman for Ithp ensuing year. Rev. Hugh Jones seconded the proposal, which was carried. Mr. Nathan Griffiths proposed That Mr. David John, Llanelly, be elected on the County Council in place of the late Mr. W. B. Jones, as representative of Hengoed di- vision. Mr. Wm. Griffiths seconded and pointed out that Mr. John had represented the di- vision on the County Council for nine years before he retired and was succeeded by Mr. W. B. Jones.—The motion was carried. With regard to the vacancy in the repres- •i^'ion of Llangunnor caused by the Rev. K B. Lloyd being elected an alderman, a meeting of tho parishioners recommended the election of Mr. Jno. Richards, Dany- coed. and expressed a strong desire that the Counrv Coun-il shouid not go outside the di- vision to fill the vacancy. Mr. K B. Lloyd proposed and Mr. Jno. Lloyd seconded, that Mr. Jno. Richards be elected. Mr. Phillip Phillips moved that Mr. T. Howell Davies, solicitor, Carmarthen, be elected, pointing out that many in the di- vision bad asked him to propose Mr. Davies. Rev. Wm. Thomas said they were not sure how many parishioners attended the meet- ing referred to. Sometimes only two or three attended a meeting and they carried on everything. Rev. E. B. Lloyd said representatives from every parish in the division attended the meeting and they protested against in- truders from outside being elected as their County Councillor. On a ballot Mr. Howell Davies was elec- by 24 votes to 14 cast for* Mr. J'no. Richards. A DRASTIC STEP. The meeting considered a letter from the Glamorgan Insurance Committee pointing out that a large number of cases had come inder their notice where persons recom- mended for sanatorium or hospital treat- j ment had refused to avail themselves of the ] treatment, and a still larger number of cases of patients who had discharged themselves from institutions before the contusion of, the period of treatment recommended and imt the advice of the medical superinteai- d with the result that the advantages that dd have been derived by undergoing a complete eourso of treatment had not been obtained. The Glamorgan committee asked the Council to support a resolution in favour of compulsory powers to secure ad-1 I mission to and retention in, in sanatoria of persons suffering from tuberculosis. Rev. Fuller Mill!! said the of such power was one of the. great defects in the scheme of fighting tuberculosis. At present sufferers were allowed to remain at home and mingle with others, and many of them 1duecd to go into a sanatorium. Lieut.Gen. Sir James Hills-Johns, V.C., G.C B., 1Ia.ld there were many cases where patients had left the Alltymynydd Sana- torium without leave, and the executive committee unanimously agreed that the I steps suggested should be taken. Mr. H. E. B. Richards said he was in favour of sanatoria as much an anybody, but he was not in favour of anything that savoured of compulsory treatment. The resolution meant forcibly detaining patients at a. sanatorivun, and taking away the liber- ty of the peiple. "There is a. great diver- sity of opinion in the medioal profession as to the utility of sanatoria," he said, "and yon are ffoing to force willy-nilly down people's throats your own opinions. You are going to take away the liberties of the people." Dr. J. H. Williams said the resolution simply asked the Government to do exactly in cases of tuberculosis what they had done in oases of scarlet feve. small pox and other dit-:t»a.ses. "Ybu talk about the liberty of the subject," he said, "Do you think it that a man who carries such a disease as tpJbefculeeifi rhould be allowed to transfer it t.o another person by going about as he Dr. Ilovd (Newcastle Emlyn) said scarlet fever was curable in a short period, where- as in a ctMo of tuberculosis a man might suffer for years. The resolution meant that a (itberr ular patient WOt; ld be detained in gaol ;1 it were—for years. He agreed that such men should be compelled to enter a sanatorium, "but not detain them for years as if in g-aol." Rev. E B. Lioyd—The resolution means detaining- cufferers in the institutions as Jong as you like, and that will mean that half the people of the country will be prisoners. Rev. Fuller Mills said it was a disgrace- ful thirty that anyone there should compare a sanatorium to a gaol. A sanatorium was a home where there was home-comfort. The council by a large majority decided to support the resolution. £ 11,000 TO THE GOOD. In submitting the estimates for the year, Aid. David Evans, chairman of the finance committee, sa'd that last year the surveyors did not spend according to the estimates be cause th^y. could not get material. In the education estimates, provision liad ben made for an increase in the salaries of the teachers. The actual expenditure on educa- tion last year was £51,800 and for the ensu- ing year they estimated an expenditure of £M,500, so as to meet the teaichers as fairly as possible in the question of salaries. That question had become more lively after the ) remarks of Dr. Fisher in the House of Com- mons. The President of the Board of Edu- cation proposed certain new grants in aid of education, and roughly it would affect Car- marthi"n!\hire to the tune of something like i.Il.COC to the good after meeting the 1Pven if they had to increase the county education- rate by a penny. He was not quite sure whether such an increase in the rates would be necessary. The ,council approved of a general county rate of Is. 2d. in the B, special county rate 4d., elementary education Id., higher edu- cation Hd., and secondary education d. in the CINEMA HALLS ON SACRED DAYS.- Mr. W. N. Jones submitted a motion that all resolutions with regard to the opening of cinema halls be rescinded, and that they be closed on 'Christmas Days, Good Fridays, and Sundays. Mr. Nathan Griffiths said that in towns like Llanelly there were no places for young men to go if the cinemas were closed but the public-house or the open streets. He had the authority of the police for stating that they would heartily support a proposal for places of amusement to be opened on the drtys referred to. There was no more I harm in going to a cinema on Good Friday than going to a. benefit concert at a Drill Hall on Sunday evenings. Many such con- certs were held at Llanelly on Sunday nights. It was a remarkable fact that most of those who opposed the opening ol cinemas on the days referred to were people who had never been inside a cinema. Air. Griffiths moved an amendment that cinemas be allowed to open on Good Friday and Christmas Day (noj Sundays) provided I' half the receipts were given to charity. Rev. Fuller Mills said they must bear in mind that even their churches had been used on Sundays as recruiting halls and as seeking to bring men nto the service—and rightly too he thought—to defend our country. If Aid. W. N. Jones or anyone else appeared there in the role of repre- sentative of any ecclesiastical establishment in order to support the definite sanction of Good Friday or any other day outside the Sabbath, then he objected to it. There was no more sacredness in connection with I Good Friday or any other day than there was to anything in the world that was not sacred. There was no proof in history that "ur Lord was born on Christmas Day. The 'I probability was that lie was not, and that He was born very much later. There was no proof that our Lord suffered on Good Friday. These dates had sprung out from superstition. He could not agree to the closing of tho cincma on thes? days because it would be closing them to the poor people. Aid. W. N. Jones could cro on a trip in his Motor car on Good Friday and Christmas or any other day, and could swallow good dinner in a "hotel in the town he •ted, but there were scores of poor men r I women who had only two or three holi- i .ys in the year. and were they going to deprive those people of a little innocent p' east re? Mr. W. N. Jones said the fact that Mr. Nathan Griffiths and other people attended a "football match oh Good Friday was no proof that it was a proper thing to do. Despite what was said by Mr. Mills, Christ- mas Day and Good Friday were accepted by us now as sacred days, and as the superior body in the county it was for that council to set an example by upholding their observance. Mr. Nathan Griffiths' amendment was carried by a majority.

Vaughan Watkins, of the Llan- dovery Brewery, applied for the exemption of Uavid Hillman Davies, a working brewer and topman (single), aged 00 yeare, who had been classed as B2. He was the only man on the premises who knew anything about brewing. Two men had left his employ- ment for the army. The Tribunal deoided that as no military representative had at- tended. to grant a conditional exemption until such time as a suitable substitute was fond by the employers or military- authori- ties.—Mr. T. Roberts, J.P., of the Crown Stores, appealed for the exemption of one of his hauliers named Charles Thomas, aged 18 years, who had passed fit for Class A. The man. it was stated, had three brothers already in the army. A similar decision was arrived at. The Diocesan Inspector has just sent the following general report to the Rev. D. J. Ewns (vicar) upon his recent examination i.l1rclious instruction, of the pupils a t- tending the Church of England School, Mjddfai:—" From the spo ial results it will be noticed that on the whole the work done in the school during the year was of a uniformly high standard and satisfactory. Owing to the effect of the severe winter conditions on the attendance it could not be expccted that, the results would be quite as good as usual, but considering hes comli- tions thfty were remarkably n'ood. Greater regard should be had for the mor-e prac- tical aspect of the instructions, and a slight improvement in the religious tone of the i teaching would g-reatly enhance the value of the work." The monthly fair was held on Tuesday and Wednesday in last week, and was largely attended with stock which realized exceptionalJy high prices. In cattle, cows with calves fetched from £25 to £35; year- ling steers and heifers, JB14 to £20; two- j. year-olds, £25 to £30; and barreners, £20 to f25 each. The horse trade was brisk, carters realizing from £64 to £80; colliers, I £5(, to £65; and cobs, £30 to £40. Pigs again were in great demand, porkers reach- ing 19s. per score (live weight}. Over eight tons of seed potatoes of the "Golden Wonder" and "Up-to-date" variety were consigned to Llandbvuery last, week by the Carmarthenshire War Agricultural Committee in response to orders received by them sino-e January last. These were disposed of at the- Corn Market at a. moderate price per cwt., and should prove a God-send to the district, as potatoes are very scan-e.. Mr. vs Williams, of Tondeg Villa, lias just received an intimation that his wife's brother has died from wounds at the Ply- mouth Hospital. The deceased, who had wounds in both lungs, was third in com- mand in the .Mercantile Service, and was engaged in conveying food for the troops in Salonika. The body was interred m Cardiff Cemetery. The departed leaves a widow and one child surviving, to whom much sympathy is extended.

At the Town Hall on Friday last, Mr. Daniel Johns, the executive officer under the Carmarthenshire Executive War Agri- cultural Committee, addressed a large gathering of the members of the District Committees and Sub-Committees of Parish Councils in the Llandovery Union on the fod problem. He informed the gathering that the county was now being organised so that every parish would have an oppor tunity of presenting any difficulties to the Executive Committee. Mr. D. W. Drum- mond, of Hafodneddyn, also spoke. The annual Easter Vestry for St. Mary's Church, Cvnghordv, took place at the Cynghordy Schools on Thursday evening of last week, the Rev. H.

AMMANFORD URBAN COUNCIL ELECTION Of CHAIRMAN AND VICE- CHAIRMAN. The annual meeting of the ouncil was held at the Y.M.C.A. Institute on Friday evening. Present: Messrs. J. Davies, J. C. Shaw, B. R. Evans, W. N. Jones, Evan Lewie, Evan Evans, J. Harries, J. E. Jones, Dd. George, Wm. Evans, and the Rev. J. Morgan; also the Clerk (Mr. T. M. Evans, MA.), and the Assistant Clerk (Mr. A. E. Evaus). The first business was the appointment of chairman for the year, and Mr. J. Davies, the retiring chairman, proposed that Mr. J. C. Shaw, the past year's vice-chairman, be elected. Mr. David Jones seconded, and the motion was carred unanrnously. Before vacating the chair, Mr. Davies thanked the members for the support they had given him during the year. Upon taking the chair, Mr. Shaw, who was warmly greeted, said he considered it a great honour to be appointed chairman, and he would like to ask the members for their co-operation in carrying- out the duties. He should endeavour to hold the scales as evenly as possible. He anticipated there would not be a great deal of public work to carry out during the twelve months, i>tH'ause all the great schemes-extra water supply and tho sewerage schemes—had been put of until after the war. But the im- provement of the water supply at Hopkins- hwn could now be effected. He under- stood it could be carried out at very small expense, and the suggested scheme would make a shortage of water there a thing of the past. As soon as the labour on the plots was finished, he hoped this would be undertaken, and that it would be a success. The next twelve months would be a critical period for the nation, and it would be for everybody to exert themselves to the full, lso that the sacrifices of the sailors and soldiers might not be in vain. He dwelt on the response of the empire to the need of the Motherland, and observed that those of them who were too old for the fighting forces had now an opportunity to strain evi-ry and sinew for their g-reat and glorious Empire, upon which the sun never setf. He looked to the end of the war be- fore his term of office expired (cheers). The Chairman then proposed a vote of thanks to Mr. Davies (the retiring chairman) for his cor duct of 'the business during the year. Mr. Dd. George seconded the vote of thanks, which was enthusiastically carried, and Mr. Daviee responded. For the vice-chair Mr. David Jones sub- mittea the name of Mr. J. E. Jones, and Mr. B. R. Evans eeconded. This was car- ried with unanimity, and Mr. Jones felici- tously thanked the members for the honour. All the departmental committees were re- elected, and the vice-chairman was appoin- ted as representative on the Joint Sewerage Board. Members who signed -in for a new term of office were: Messrs. W. N. Jones, David Jones, Evan Evans, Thomas Fletcher, and J. Davies. Mr. Dd. George asked members to con- sider the advisability for collecting waste paper in the area. It woivd indirectly •m- prove the. sanitation of the place, and be a direct source of revenue.
