I YSTRADGYNLAIS NOTES. I The attention of our readers is directed to the fact that the Lla-eth- ferch Dramatic Company, of Ynis- meudwy, will appear at the Coliseum, Ystalyfera, on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday next, and will give per- formances of the powerful Welsh Drama "Gruffydd o'r Glyn" by Alarch Ogwy. The drama is under the con- ductorship of Miss M J. Francis, of Ynismeudwy, and has already been performed at other towns with great I success. It may be mentioned that the author witnessed the recent per- formance at Pontardawe by the Llaeth- ferch Company, and although he had seen six other parties performing the drama, he declared that the acting by this Company was by far the best. We are glad to learn that Mrs. Morris of Ynia, who underwent a serious opera- tion in Dr. Brookes' Nursing Institute, has now returned home, and is progress- ing favourably. j Private Ted Jeffreys, Gough-buildings, and Private Cory-White, formerly with Mr. J. W. Bowen, of Bryn Stores, are home on short leave. The latter expects to be sent to the front very shortly. The Rev. Rogers, B.A., Bridgend, occupied the pulpit at Sardis on Sunday and his discourses were much enjoyed. We regret to learn that Councillor J W. Morgan is somewhat seriously indis- posed, and has been confined to his bed for some days, suffering from an acute attack of rheumatism. We trust the coun- cillor will soon be restored to health. Whz,t might have been a serious acci dent was narrowly averted on Sunday last. As Mrs. Williams of the Temperance Hotel, was walking past the Congrega- tional Chapel, a motor-car, which was proceeding down Commercial-street, was turned sharply round to enter the garage j at the back of the chapel. Whether Mrs. t Williams was knocked down by the car, or fell in her anxiety to get out of its way, is not certhin, but Mrs. Williams sustained a nasty fall. Though not serious- ly injured, she suffered considerably from shock, but is now, we are glad to say, better. I DEATH OF CHILD We regret to report the death of I the infant child of M r and Mrs. T. Davies, Brecon road, which occurred on Sunday. The interment took place on Wednesday, the Rev. Jas. Jones, officiating. I.L. P. SUPPER The annual re-union supper in con- nection with the local branch of the I.L.P. was held on Saturday, when a good number sat down toan excellent repast. After the meal was over, a musical programme was rendered. Games of various kinds and dancing were indulged in, and an enjoyable time was spent. A concert in hour of Mr E. H. Hugheson, on his attaining the degree of A.R.C.O. will be held at the Church Schoolroom on Wednesday evening. All the local bards will appear to pay their tribute to the young musician, and many soloists and elocutionists will be present. An enjoyable evening is anticipated. ] THE SHOW. Arrangements are now well in hand for the forthcoming poulty show. En- tries have been received from all parts of the country. It is feared that late entries will have to be rejected, as these show a tendency to increase over the accommodation. The secretarial arrangements are in the capable hands of Mr Daniel Evans, Ynis cottage. Mr T. J. Davies, Maesyderi, who Is fast becoming a judge of repute, will assist at the adjudication. It is to be hoped that, the event will be a success.

This hard working choir is making favourable head way under the con- ductorship of Mr Howell Phillip, A.T.S.C., and a good service is oon- fidentlji expected. In January of last year we gave some very interesting particulars of the experiences of Pte. Mike Dunphy, of the Lajicashires, who worked at the Gurnos Colliery prior to August. 1914, when he was called to the colours, Pte. Dunphy took part in the famous retreat from Mons, and was later wounded at La Bassee. In March he was again sent to the front, but on account of this wounded hand, he was attached to A.S.C., but nevertheless it appears that he took his regular spell in the front trenches. Some weeks ago, his many friends in the district,—for "Mike" was held in warm regard by all who knew him— were shocked and grieved to hear that the merry Irish lad had been killed— blown up by a "Jack Johnson" in com pany with five others. No little de- lighted surprise was toorefore exper- ienced by them when Pte. Dunphy ap- peared in the flesh in the place on Saturday last,—this time again wounded, and suffering from his gruell- ing experiences in trench and with transport. During nis short stay in the district, he is the guest of Mr Peter Meaney, Varteg Hill, and as it will be impossible for him to see all his old friends he desires to use this column to convey to them his warm regards. We think the case of Pte. Dunphy is one which should come under the con- sideration of the inhabitants of Ys- tradgynlais. It is true he is not a native of the place, nevertheless it was his home, and it would be a graceful and appreciative act if he were treated j as other local boys are treated who have borne the fatigues and faced the da.nger of the war on our behalf. Who will take the lead ? Now you Irish lads of the district, make a start, and you will be well supported.

Ystradgynlais Man in [_ Trouble. Bogus Collecting Card. A young man in khaki, named Albert Pengelly (22), of Ystradgynlais, appeared in the dock at Swansea County Police COllrt on Wednesday, charged with pro- curing charitable contributions under false pretences. Mrs. Alice Lambert, Antelope Inn, | Mumbles, said at about 8 o'clock on Sun- day last defendant called at the bar and presented a collecting book, saying "Will you give me someUÜng towards a soldier, Thomas Davies, who had his leg blown off at the battle of Loos. He has a wife and six children, and lives at 15, St. George-street, Swansea. She gave him a shilling. Mr. H. Muller, Pier-street, Swansea, spoke to giving defendant a. donation of sixpence upon a similar representation. William Henry Davies, 15, St. George- street, Swansea, said he had a son named Thomas Davies, who resided at Fforest- fach, but he had never been in the Army. He had another son, C. H. Davies, in the Army, but he had not been to the front yet. Witness had never authorised anybody to collect on behalf of either of his sons. OVERHEARD BY THE SERGEANT. Sergeant Williams, of Oystermoutfc, said he arrested defendant on Sunday night at Oystermouth Railway Station. He overheard defendant asking two men there to give him a contribution towards a wounded soldier named Thos. Davies. One man asked him where Davies lived, and defendant replied, "St. Gecrge- street, Swansea." The man thr i handed him threepence. Witness accosted him, aad asked who authorised him to collect. Defendant replied, "We are a committee of twelve men. It is for a, good cause." Later, when chargedfi defendant said, I was in need of money. While looking for a job I thought this would be the best way of getting a few shillings together.. I collected 8s. 8d. in Mumbles to-night.. I am sorry now I done it. I have got » good character from the Army,and I hope my pension will not be stopped i through this." On searching defendant, witness found £1 10s. in Treasury notes, R-1 17s. 5d. in silver and copper, an Army discharge certificate, and a collecting book. Defendant had been discharged from the Army since November 7th, last year. WANTED A SUIT OF CLOTHES. Defendant now told the magistrates he wanted a suit of clothes to start work with, and he did not know which way to get them. He only had his uniform. Supt. Letheren said defendant was re. spect-bly connected. He was wounded at Hill 60, but returned to the front. Later, however, he was taken ill with septic poisoning and had been discharged fre-m the Army. His conduct has sincw very strange, and he had been a source of trouble to his father. He was Teeciv. ing a temporary pension of 25s. a week.. Defendant was sent to prison for three- months.
