YSTALYFERA NOTES. Mr Daniel Owen, Rhymney, conduc- ted a rehearsal at Pantteg Chapel on Sunday afternoon and evenilng last, in preparation for the Cymanfa in con- nection with the local oongregational- ists, to be held on Easter Monday. The singing was of good quality, and church represented were: the Gurnos, Wern, Pantteg, and Godre'rgraig. The cihoir was assisted by the Pantteg orchestra, under the conduetorshi]j| of Mr C. A. Morgan. Duritng the evening rehearsal, at which the Rev. John Thomas. Gurnos, took part, the Rev. Ellis Parry, Godre'rgraig, who is shortly leaving for Frajioe as a chap- lain with the Foroas, spoke a few words, and the Rev. Ben. Davie s con- veyed the best wishes of those present 10 Mr Parry on his departure. At the fortnightly meeting of the Wern Mutual Improvement Society held on Monday evening. Mr W. D. Davies presided, when MossiN. D. E. Parry, and W. R. Rees, rtead excellent papers on "Hunan DdiwyHiant mewn oriau hamddenol," ¡a¡fJ:d "Disgwyliad," respectively. Messrs. John Williams, Thomta.s Jones, Thomas Davies, and W Jones comment&d upon the excellent papers given, and a vote of thanks to the speakers was passed, on the motion of Mr Thos. Davies, seconded by Mr Evan Williams. Councillor J. D. Rees, contractor, has recived notification that his son, Mr Glyn Roes, who is at the Bnrry Port urn nit ton works, has been pro- motred to the position of cashier at the offices. Mr. promotion is well merited, and his Ystalyfera friends join in wishing further suc- cess. There is considerable perturbation amongst file bettor and cheese mer- chants of the locality in connection with the "dumping" of their supplies /of butter and cheese this weok at Pofttardawe. It appears trtiat until the ration cards are distributed, local dealers will receive supplies of butter and margarine iN proportion to the number of sugar ca rds which they hold. How the local bwtter merchants will meet the demand of their custom- ers is not at the moment clear, but one of them calls the attention of his customers in our advertising columns, to the fact that they are free to regis- ter for butter, etc., with their usual dealer, a.nd are not obliged to obtain their supplies where they get their sugar. An enjoyable social evening was spent at Jerusalem OR Thursday, Councillor H. J. Powell, J. P., pre- siding, when Sapper Richie Phillips, R.E..

Morgan. The usual vote of tha.nks to the artistes, the committee of young people, and the ladies for the work they had clone which made the evening such an enjoyable one. 'In our report of the concert held last week at the Drill Hall, Gurnos, in support of the Ystradgynlais and Ystalyfera Emergency War Funds, through an oversight no mention was made of the splendid performance of the instrumental quartette from the Ystalyfera Temperance Band under the leadership of Mr. J. W. Hopkin.

Thomas also read a very able paper on "Cymeriad." Miss Annie Willie Williams presided, and the fol- lowing spoke: Rev. W. Jones. Mr. Kredk. Rees. Messrs. Joseph Evans, Elwyn Evans, and G. J. Evans. "A Smallholder" writing on the question of fresh manure and wart disease, says: Allotment holders and others who intend to grow potatoes should be warned against using fresh manure when planting the seed if the desire to keep their plots and gardens free of wart disease. That fresh manure has a tendency to cause the disease is almost certainly proved by what oc- eurred in tho Amman Valley last season. Three gardens adjoining each other were planted with the same kind of pota to seed given by one of the holders to his two neighbours. Only a low hedge and bank separated two plots from the other, yet the last, in which fresh stable manure was used, was the only garden affected by the disease. At a recent competitive meeting, Owen' Francis Jones, Graig-y-Merched, was successful in taking the first prize offered .for the best drawing of a. chestnut twig, and was complimented by the adjudicator for his most riitiiril drawing. | Vivian Lloyd Davies, Twyncerdinen.
