Meysydd Lien a Chan. [Gan HOMER."] I GORONWY OWEN.-(parhad). I Mawrhawyd ei waith gan brif ysgrifenwyr pob cenhedlaeth. Yr oedd yn enwog yn ei ddydd, a chynhyddu'n ddidor a wnaeth ei glod byth er hynny. Mae llawer o bethau yn cyfrif am hynny, megis godidowgrwydd iaith, cryfder ymadrodd, ac arucheledd syniadau. Ceir yn ei waith hefyd fwy o amrywiaeth ac o graffter meddwl nag yng ngwaith neb arall or hen feirdd. Mae delw pensaer llenyddol ar ei holl waith ef. Angau a Bun ydoedd dau brif destyn yr hen feirdd i gyd, ac nid yw'r elfen ddynol a geir yn eu barddoniaeth ond drychiolaeth yn codi o gysgod angau, a sancteiddir Natur yn eu holl ganu gam bresenoldeb Bun. Fe ganodd Goronwy yntau i Angau ac i Fun, ac ni chanwyd hyd eto well marwnadau na'r eiddo ef. Haerodd Thywun na chanodd GORONWY AR BWNC SERCH. Ond canu a wnaeth, er hynny, a chanu'n wych hefyd- Gwir yw i mi garu merch- Trosais hyd holl ffyrdd traserch, ) Wyf glwyfus, nid a gleif waith," meddai ef ei hun. Gwnaeth memwen a gwen y gwaith," meddai ymhellach. Mae yn ei waith fwy nag a dybir yn gyffredin o ganu Natur," ond nid rhodfeydd rhiannod mo llwybrau Anian iddo ef, ond yn hytrach man cyfarfod Duw a dynion. Gwelodd Goronwy Dduw mewn blodyn ymhell o flaen Wordsworth, a rhoes ei weiedigaeth mewn dillynach iaith. Ebr ef:— Cawn nodi on cain adail Gwyrth Duw mewn rhagorwaith dail, A diau pob blodeuyn A ysbys ddengys i ddyn Ddirfawr ddyfnderoedd arfaeth Diegwan lor—Duw a'i gwrtaeth." Canmoled y Saeson faint a fyxmont ar eu poetau, ac uned llais ambell gorr o gritic o Gymru yn y fawldraith, os myn ef, ond hid i ninnau ryddid i ddywedyd na sgrifenodd yr un Sais erioed gystal IlineH a Gwyrth Duw mewn rhagorwaith dail." Yn wir, ni ellid byth gyfleu'r fath geinder ym meiniaith lac y Saeson. Ceir yn ei waith liawa o linellau unigol sy'n cynnwys darlun eyfan, cystal a dim a geir yn y Gogynfeirdd, megis-- Cai irddail ffordd y cerddych, Ceia tawel awel o wyrdd lwyni." Yr oedd Goronwy eto'n feistr ar ddangos mwy nag a ddywedai, a medrai bortreadu DARN 0 WLAD GAIN, nid a geiriau, ond ag awgrym, fel yn y lHnellau a ddyfynwyd. Gwyddis y medrai'r ben feirdd Cymreig gyfleu syrnad cyflawn mewn un llmell saith sillaf; ac yr oedd Gomniwy yn gymamt o feistr air y gr-titt a'r un ohonynt. Pen milwr, pwy un moliaiit?" meddai, mewn iaith a wynfyda ddyn. Gwae'n gwlad a tu gi/c-uiio'i gledd," meddai wedyn; a wd-d fyddtti amlnau engreifftiau o geinion cyffelyb. Nid wyf yn tybied fod yn ein boll len- yddiaeth farddonol gwpled a'm swyna i yn fwy na hwn o waith Goronwy:— Net trech ei rwysg na'r Tii Chryf. Os holwn. fu ei Selyf." Ni feo-ir dweyd yn iawn ymhle y mae I Caddiad cryfder y llmell gyntaf yna, ond yn sicr y mac ei swyn yn drech na ni. Teimlir fod priotUs yr iaith Wr gynghanedd ynddi yn lID o Teidiau natur. Wedi'r cyfan, nid mewn darluiniiau bychain prydferth y rhagorai Goronwy: yr oedd ef yn arlunydd a fedrai baenjjo DARLUN MAWR CYFLAWN ar ganfas lletach na'r greadigaeth. Dyna a wnaeth yng nghywydd rhyfeddol Y Fain Fawr. Ysgrifennodd hefyd amryw o gywyddau eraill sy' n arddangos gallu cread igol a chynlluniol o' r radd lfa-enaf. Nod- weddix barddoniaeth Goronwy gan angerdd teimlad, a dichon bod y nodwedd hon yn cyrraedd ei heithafbwynt yng Nghywydd Hiraeth am Fon."

A very pretty wedding took place on the 3rd inst. at .aron Baptist Chapel, Llandebie, in which great interest was taken. Both the parties are well known, the bride being iery popular at SOfron. She was Miss M. A. Thomas, of the Saron Post Office, and the only child of the late Mr.' John Thomas and Mrs. Thomas, and granddaughter of the late Rev. John Thomas, Saron. The bridegroom was the Rev. Gwïlym Owen, B.A., the esteemed minister of the Baptist Church at Ferodale. The bride, who was given away by her cousin, Mr. J. Owen Parry, c;,il engineer, Ammanford, looked charming in a dress of white ivory Charmeuse, with an overdress of ninon with mother of pearl and orange blossom trimmings, and a white Georgette hat to match. She carried a sheaf of Madonna lilies. The bridesmaids were the Misses Frances Parry and Amelia Watkms (cousins of the bride)", who wore dresses of apricot crepe-de-Chine trimmed with turquoise blue and silver grey crepe-de- Chine, with white cloth hats to match. They carried shower bouquets of pink and mauve asters with trailing ferns. Miss Millicent Rees was attired in a pink crepe-de-Chine dress with a peggy cap. She also carried a basket of pink and mauve asters. The little pageboys, Masters Eiddon and Gwilym Parry, added to the brilliancy of the occa- sion. Both looked exceedingly smart in black velvet and crepe-de-Chine blouses. The duties of best man were performed by Mr. Dan Jones, the precentor at the bridegroom's church. The Revs. D. S. Davies, Saxon, and J. Jenkins, M.A. (Gwili), officiated. A reception was afterwards held at the resi- dence of the bride and, and amongst those preesnt were Mrs. Thomas (mother of the bride); Rev. and Mrs. D. S. Davies; Rev. J.

Ammanford Police Court. Monday, September 8th.-Before Ald. W. N. Jones, Dyffryn (in the chair) and County Councillor T. Morris, Garnant. A GAME OF CHANCE. Evan Morgan, 3, Gellygron Road, Pontar- dawe, was charged with playing a game of chance known as Crown and Anchor" at the Ammanford Races on Saturday last. P.C. Edwards proved the offence. Defendant pleaded guilty, and was fined 15s. 6d. inclusive. UNREGISTERED MOTOR-CYCLE. P.C. Edwards summoned Morris Bowen, Norman, Road, Tjrydail, for having in his possession an unregistered motor-cycle. Defendant, who did not appear, was fined £ 1 inclusive. VARIATION ORDERS. Several applications for increased paternity orders were granted. In one instance it was pointed out that the defendant earned on an average jE.5 18s. 6d. a week, and was a col lier. OL The increases in all cases amounited to 6s. DEFICIENCY. r;m' was summoned for selling m Llk llcten,; in fat. Defendant pleaded guilty. Inspector John Jones said that he took a sample from the defendant on the 28th July last. The analyst's report shewed a defi- ciency of 15 per cent. A fine of IE3 16s. inclusive was imposed. THEFT. Two soldiers, named H. Cook and A. Waldon, stationed at the Prisoners of War Camp, Llandebie, were charged jointly by Deputy Chief Constable Evans with stealing a quantity of potatoes and swedes, of the value of 3s. 6d., the property of Evan Jones, Cilyrychen Farm. Evan Jones said that on the 27th of last month he visited a field on his farm between 5 and 6 o'clock. He found that a quantity of potatoes and swedes had been stolen. On the Sunday previous everything was correct. He saw the tww defendants passing the farm alongside the road. He did not see them take the potatoes. P.C. Kennedy deposed that on the 5th August he saw defendants at Pantyrhodin Prisoners of War Camp. He cautioned them, and on being charged defendant Cook re- plied: I don't wish to say anything about it. We are willing to pay for it." Priv. Waldon said: I say the same. I am will- ing to pay for them." On being served with the summons, Cook said: We were short of grub; but there, the job is done now." Waldon said: I hope Cookie doesn't find out that I have given him away." To the officer, the night previous, Waldon said: I was there along with Cookie. We did not take many. We are short of rations, and only had one feed. The rest will have to get them for themselves from now on." Defendant Cook denied having made the statement to the officer, and Waldon admitted making the Statement to the officer, but did not mean anything. They both pleaded not guilty. ¥:gt. Wilson said that on the 27th of last month the two defendants mounted guard at 9 a.m. They took turn about at inter- vals of two hours each until 9 a.m. on the following day. Whilst these two men were on duty they had no business whatever to leave the camp. He knew himself that neither of the defendants left the camp on that day. If they had left the camp they would have been immediately missed. He had been 23 years with the Colours. He did not wish to say. that he kept the defen- dants under observation during 1 the whole time he was on guard. He was sergeant in charge of the whole camp, and Sergt. Lewis was in charge of the guard. The Deputy Chief Constable said that he had no desire to press the charge against the two young soldiers, but the property of farmers and others would have to be pro- tected. The Chairman, in ordering the defendants to pay costs, said that he was sorry to see two young men in khaki before them. He (the Chairman) would have thought that they would have endeavoured to protect pro- perty and not taken the part they did. They had but little doubt that the theft had been committed. UNDER-MANAGER'S ALLEGED ASSAULT. Trevor Williams, Irwyn House, Glan- amman, summoned Gwilym Rees, undl.- manager at the Duffryn Amman Colliery, Kir assault.

Station Road. Croydon, Surrey. ''of, Mr. T. M. Evans was for the prosecution, and Mr. Sam Griffiths defended. The complainant said that he was 14 years of age, and described a quarrel he had with defendant's son, Vernon Rees, which resulted in the lartter striking him a unmber of blows while on the ground. He appealed to him to stop, whereupon defendant said "I will give you stop. Under cross-examination complainant denied that he was a "little bully," nor did he remember having struck any other children. He, however, remembered a complaint reach- ing the school concerning his conduct to a daughter of defendant, whom it was alleged he had been beating. P.C. Roberts deposed that he saw the complainant stripped, and found trace of a blow having been struck on the back, and which was consistent to a blow struck with the open hand. The defence gave a complete denial to the allegation, and said that there had been indifferences between the older parties some years ago, and which, undbubtly, was retained by the children. On the date of the offence the defendant said that on looking out through the window, he saw his son being chased by complainant. He had heard screams prior to that. He noturally rushed out, and admitted catchire f hold of complainant, but denied having struck him. Evidence was also given by Herbert Roach and John Pugh. The chairman said that it was a pity the parties had not settled the affair there and then, and shook hands. It was a pity it had ever been brought to court. The case was dismissed. JUVENILE COURT. Three boys hailing from Llandebie were summoned at the instance of Inspector Mullard, R.S.P.C.A., Carmarthen, with cruelly illtreating a cat., Defendants' ages ranged from 16 to 8 years. At the outset, the Inspector stated that the Society did not wish to press the charge against the younger boys, but took exception to the older lad, who, no doubt, had led the Little ones on. Brinley Davies, 16, Margaret Street, Llan- dilo, said that at 3-30 p.m. on the 24th of August, he saw the elder defendant throw in a black and white cat into the River Morlais. The cat managed to get out, but defendant caught hold of it and threw it in again. This was repeated. Had he (witness) been able to get to them, he would have com- plained to them of their treatment. P. C. Kennedy said that he saw the cat the same evening, and it was still wet, and mewing piteously. He charged the defendants with the offence, and the elder defendant replied "I only threw it in once." The others denied having touched the animal. A fine of £ 1 was imposed on the elder defendant, and the others let off on payment of costs.

Amman United Notes. [By OLD SPORT."] By the time these notes appear we shall have some idea as to the constitution of both the First and Second XV.' s for the coming season, for the Committee on Monday even- ing picked two strong sides for a practice game on Wednesday evening. If Monday's meeting can be taken as any criterion of the prospects of attractive football this season, then all I can say is that we are in for one of the best periods in the annals of the club. It was with difficulty that the practice teams couJd be decided on, and several names had to be put to the vote ere two complete sides were chosen. Several other matters of inheres: also cropped 'up, indicating the keenness -hich the Committee are taking in their duties. One of the points r?was the advisability or otherwise of either altering iLJ price of the season ll-keis, or of allowing them to be used for admission to second team rsn iec u v-li It was felt in some quar- ters that the price was h:h for only 18 matches. ALer the matter had been well dLci ;-sed, put to the vote. and carried by an overwhelming ma; Jtv to l':av.= matters as 1-3 nn Whether this is the l wisest course or not, only the future cam decide. However, I should like to appeal to the sporting instincts of all supports the club to rally rOUIJdtbe Committee* on I this matter. Everybody realises the very heavy expenses facing the Committee this season, when football requisites, travelling expenses, &c., are so very much higher than they were in pre-war days. I sliould also like to point out that of the 10s. only 7s. 4d. goes to therclub, the other 2s. 8d. being tax. I understand that the tickets are going very well, some of the first to purchase being' a few of the players themselves. This is the spirit of good sport, and the only true foun- dation for a successful season. I hope by the next issue of the Chronicle to be able to give some idea of the prospects of the team for the future, as not only the trial, but also the first match-with Llan- gennech-will have been played. 1_
I Garnant Cricket Topics. I GARNANT v. HENDY. The last cricket match of the season was played on the Cwmamman Park between the above sides. The game can be dismissed in a few words, for, owing to the late arrival of the visitors, barely two hours were allowed for play. Garnant batted first, and in about fifty minutes scored 77 runs for six wickets. The chief run getters were W. Thomas (21). H. M. Fuller (16, not out), and G. Thomas (10). The home captain, in declaring, gave the visitors practically the same time to get the runs. However, there was nothing enter- prising in their batting, and when time was called their score stood at 40 for four wic- kets. The home captain did well in taking three Hendy wickets for 9 runs. The season has not been so successful as usual, and the record reads as follows:— Games played, 16; won, 5; lost, 8; drawn, 3. The side has been badly handicapped for a proper wicket. It is hoped by next season to lay a proper pitch once more. I append the averages for the season. In the batting, Sid Stone tops the list, with Fuller a good second. The latter's aggregate of 182 is easily highest, Tom Bevan coming ( next with 158. The highest individual score for the season was 50 by Ned Morgan. Fuller heads the bowling averages, but the most meritorious performance is that of W. J. Williams, the Gamant captain, whose bag of 40 wickets speaks for itself. I cannot close these notes without men- tioning the very keen interest the Garnant captain has taken in the team. His example has been a good one, but his backing at times has not been so strong as it might have been. The same faces were continually seen at practice or in any work needing to be done to the pitch. Let us hope that next season will see a change -in this direction. W. A. Hay, as secretary, I need hardly mention, has done his bit both on and off the field. Games Aggre- Innings. Not Out. gate. Average. S. Stone 7 3. 104 14.86 H. M. Fuller. 13 1 182 14 W. A.
