Under the Lamp. I [By THE WATCHMAN. I The seasonable motto, V Peace and good-will to all men," on this occasion conveys an elaborate and lasting im- pression. War has ceased, and once more the majority of us will be enabled to share the Y uletidle festivities within our own little family circle. This year circumstances have changed after the trying period of the past, and the observance of the real Peace Christmas is at our very doors. With the excep- tion of the profiteer, there is very little to dread. The inmates within the walls of our local workhouses are to be catered for, and everything possible is to be prepared to ensure a comfortable Yuletide. This year the poor Old Age Pensioner is to be remembered, and although the increase granted is not a substantial one, it may, by further agita- tion in the New Year, be considerably and reasonably augmented. The pro- visions for the kiddies have, I notice, also been improved upon, and to-day War is no more. Our different establishments have been laden with all the good things applicable to the occa- Ion, and I am not far wrong if I state hat justice has been amply done by he fond parents to grasp the opportu- lities which in the past years have been are. There is one wish that I place ibove all others, and that is the claim of the war widows and little orphans o recognition during these celebrations. t .et: me hope that the majority of us vill remember them, and assist them n the procuring of all the necessities equired. It is not yet too late for us ] o forget them, and this evening among I mrselves we can think the matter over. rhere may be a deserving case in the listrict, but Let not our trumpets ound, for is Silence not of the I ;ods ? 1 wne would be led to believe that Porta's influence predominated at Ammanford, and that we were in the very throes of bankruptcy. Both the Housing and Drainage questions are causing untold misery to the represen- I tatives of the people, and unless they put up a bolder front, the result is obvious. The members of the Housing j Committee have been assured, and the assurance has even been given in I writing, that the cost of the Housing Scheme to the ratepayers will not ex- ceed a penny rate. Then why haggle I over the question of its adoption? Mr. Evan Evans told us on Monday evening that there were over a hundred young couples waiting to be married in the neighbourhood if they got houses. Should we not consider the needs of the rising generation, or will we con- tinue to be tied by the shackles of officialdom? It would be well if we braved the future with more confidence, and helped to realise the ambition of our Prime Minister in the provision of a land fit for heroes, I The question of the better lighting of the Llandilo Station platform would be one well worth bringing to the notice of the Llandilo Urban District Council, as well as better lighting facilities at the entrances. It is true that unless agitation is promoted there is little hope for rectification. I gather that there is both an electric lighting and gas plants at Llandilo, and yet the railway company prefer to use oil lamps, which give forth dimmed and feeble lights. Were we back in the Hungry Forties," it would be con- sistent with the period, but Time hM altered so much.

I rredexick Weaver, for the non-attendance of his child at school, wa* fined I Os. and the case against Edwin Pines, similaxly charged, was adjourned to enable enquiries to be made. HAD NOTHING TO SAY. I GLANAMMAN LICENSEE'S OFFENCE v^atnerme morgan, the licensee ot the Angel Inn, Glanarnman, was summoned for selling a pint of beer during prohibited hours. Mr. Barker, Llanelly, defended. P.C. Roberts said that at 5.27 p.m. on the 11th inst. he visited the Angel Inn. At the time bt- was in plain clothes, and entered the front kitchen, where there was no light, and there saw a man named John Morgan, who stood in front of him. On the table in the back kitchen was a pint measure quarter full of beer. John Morgan &a.id: I thought it was six o'clock." The landlady then came from the back kitchen, and witness called in P.S. Richards, who was outside. Witness charged her with the offence, and she re- plied: I have nothing to say." The time by the landlady's clock was 5.32. Later, defendant said: Do not be hard with me. It is the first time like this." Replying to Deputy Chief Constable Evans, the officer said that the general con- duct of the house was good. For the defence, Mr. Barker entered a plea of guilty, admitting a technical offence. A misunderstanding had occurred, and the licensee had not lit up the premises. The man Morgan was a cousin to defendant's son, who had been demobilised some five weeks ago, and he used to come to see him. On the day of the offence, Morgan asked her for a drink, and she said that it was not time. Morgan took out his watch, and it showed the time as four minute* to six. There being > light in the front kitchen, she did not ke heed of the clock, but relied on the S< me given by Morgan. She had conducted pc ? establishment for the past three years be ithout a complaint. w, The Bench, in warning defendant, said 6 sat they had taken regard to the circum- H ances, and let her off on payment of costs, bi Jding the hope that she would not appear he fore them again. th I THE CONSUMER. J ￼ THE CONSUMER. I in John Morgan was, charged with consuming hi ic beverage called beer" on licensed &1 remises during prohibited hours. He also was let off on payment of costs. w SALMON POACHING. I w t w Frank Rees and Wm. Evans, both of si lennen Ter., Derwydd Road, were charged c< 'ith being in possession of a lighted lamp, iff and snare for the purpose of catching dmon in the River Cennen. Bailiff Walter Walters said that on Thurs- rll ay, the 4th inst., at about 10.45 p.m., he fc ras on duty in the River Cennen by Derwydd oad, and was accompanied by Bailiff E tewart, P.C.'s Powell and Ball. They cc bserved a light on the l iver, and presently ley saw it moving. They went down along le bridge wall to the river tide, and when ._1. within ten yards ot the bridge saw the two defendants coming up from the river. Defen- dants ran away, and witness stopped them. f He asked them where was the light they F had going down to the river. Evans said: We had no light." As he (defendant Evans) was, keeping his right hand in his coat pocket, witness asked him what he had there. Witness then took the enare (pro- a duced) from defendant's pocket. Witness t again asked him where was the light they c had going down the river. Defendant re- 1 < plied the second time: I had no light." P. C. Powell and witness went in search of the lamp, and the former found it in the S hedge near the bridge, as well as the gaff. ) Defendant Rees was wet above the knees. He then charged them. They made no j reply. Cross-examined: Rees did not tell him the things did not belong to him. The snare was used to catch salmons as well as rabbits. a Bailiff James Stewart corroborated, and vt said that he did not seen the defendants in the water. Both defendants pleaded not guilty. Defendant Rees said that he was coming from Tycroes Farm, and as he was coming down from the field he saw a light by the river. Evans was with him. He saw three -haps walking towards Llandilo. They went down the path towards the river and came jp to the road, and saw the bailiff coming; out of the hedge. Cross-examined: He was wet due to coming down through the fields. His boots were leaking. s The other defendant corroborated. c The Bench ifound the case proved, and imposed fines of £ 1 each. OBSTRUCTION. I Mary Davies, Maesygwad, Penygioes, was charged with obstructing the highway. P.S. Beynon deposed that at 11.50 a.m. on the 30th November he saw defendant in Waterloo Road, Penygroes. As ihe (witness) was approaching the railway bridge the defendant was holding up her hand, shouting and praying for the Lord to curse the people." Her husband, who was with her, went along for some forty yards and stopped there. People coming from chapel had to turn one side in order to pass. He had tried every means to get her to alter her manner, but she adopted this attitude every Sunday. Defendant denied having stopped the traffic, and said that Mr. Williams, one of the magistrates, saw her going and coming rom chapel. Mr. Williams: I saw you giong to chapel. Replying to the Bench, P.S. Beynon said that he had warned defendant on several occasions. The Deputy Chief Constable said that there were continuous complaints. A letter was handed to the Bench, the contents of which were not disclosed. The Chairman said that this was not the first time for her to have appeared before them. She would be fined £ 2, and warned as to her future conduct. (On a previous occasion defendant was proceeded against on four separate charges, m which fines totalling £4 were imposed). DRUNK. I Morgan Price, Llandebie, was seen drunk at the Red Lion Hotel, Llandebie. When accosted by P.S. Morgan, he went away. This was defendant a first appearance, and I he was fined I Os. I P.S. Richards charged Wm. Morgan, Cannon Road, Lower Brynamman, with a similar offence. The officer deposed that at 10.20 p.m. on Saturday, the 13th inst., he saw defendant on the highway very drunk. He was being taken away by two young men, each catch- ing hold of an arm. He was singing, cursing and shouting. Defendant was asked to be quiet, and later the officer saw him higher up the road alone, staggering and holding up the traffic. The two young men again came forward and took him home. Defendant, who did not appear, was fined £1. BRINGING IN THE SHEAVES. I P.C. Kennedy summoned David Morgan, 4, Talbot Road, Ammanford, for driving a cart without a front white light. The constable said that at 6.30 p.m. on Sunday, the 14th inst., he saw defendant leading a horse attached to a cart laden with sheaves of corn. He only had one light on the front part of the cart. Defendant, in a lengthy explanation to the Bench, said that he started from Cynghordy that morning at 5.20 o'clock. He was not a religious man, but would not do that job if he couldhelp it. He tried at three places for carriage candles, but failed to get any. The Magistrates* Clerk: We have had the two extremes this morning. (Laughter). Continuing, defendant said that on .the aturday rooming previous he had received a ostcard from the farm where the com had een stored, to the effect that the fanner rould not be responsible for the corn after o'clock on the following Monday morning. le had taken sufficient candles out witl\ him, ut on his return the clayey state of the soil t( ad caused the cart to become stuck, with rr 1eresult that the axle became bent. He tl ad had three miles to walk to find a smithy v i order to have the axle repaired. This was is first appearance before the Bench, and he ppealed to be let off-leniently. This course was taken by the magistrates, t. "ho let him off on payment of C08tS. b Morgan David Powell, 33, Talbot tl v ho was with the last defendant, and imilarly charged, was also ordered to pay lj osts. l C INoUhHClENT LIGHT. 10 Henry Price, Cross Hands, said that he V lid not know the two lights order was in p orce in Carmarthenshire. n Replying to Deputy Chief Constable Ii Hvans, he said that he had lived in the a ounty for the past five years. a Ordered to pay costs.

NO MUZZLE. I r Rees Davies, Llandebie, summoned for c illowing his two dogs to be unmuzzled, said f o the oiffcer that he was unable to appear t « account of the Christmas market being v leJd the same day. Deputy Chief Constable Evans said that ( ince the last hearing the Order had been t evoked in part of the area covered by the s \mmanford Petty Sessional Divission. He vould be agreeable that the defendant be et off on payment of costs. P.C. Kennedy, in his evidence, said that t lefendant cahied a muzzle which was ittached to a piece of string tied around his t vaist. When accosted, the defendant said: If you want something to do, report me." Defendant was ordered to pay costs. a ALLEGED GRIEVOUS BODILY HARM I. A FURTHER REMAND. t t, Phlllip Francis, Quarry Road, Panty- c Fynnon, was further remanded to January s 2th next. The charge is one of inflicting f rievoua bodily harm upon one David Jones, y iigh Street, Ammanford. a The Deputy Chief Constable said that the r njured man was still detained at the Swan- t ea Hospital on account of the injuries re- eived. Bail was allowed'. c JUVENILE COURT. I A lad ot I Z. years of age was charged with the theft of a postal packet containing a cheque valued at £7 3s. 6d., belonging to William H. Crowe, the manager of the Lucania Billiard Hall. The latter said that he did not wish to press the charge. The boy was bound over for twelve months under the Probationers' Act, and the father was ordered to pay costs, as well as being bound over in the sum of 15 to ensure the boy's good behaviour in that period.

The Woman's Part. i [By AGNETA BROWN.] I Peace on earth and good-will awards all women" is perhaps a £ lodernised bit appropriate greeting at ft lis season of the year. The good- Ë iill towards all men, always an t1 ccepted theory amongst Christian (I copies, has been ratified this year by le Peace Treaties of Europe, and is a kely to be fortified in the future by t. To League of Nations. But good-will towards all women" r » a newer creed born in the nineteenth » entury, and confirmed by Englishmen nly in 1919 by the admission of a 8 voman into the Holy of Holies of id olitical life. It but remains that this 8 ew gospel shall permeate the national g ife, when its vivying influence will ffect not .only the women, but the men nd children of the Empire. f n -1 .ii i. _n »♦ b vauuu-wnn luwaius au women j -firstly, perhaps, towards those women I vho have helped to win the war by 1 isking their all on the battlefield so I hat they might tend the sick and the vounded. Some 30,000 of these women were i nobilised for the Nursing Services 1 luring the war. Many renounced good ►ositions at home as Sisters in Hospi- als, Matrons and Nurses to serve vithin earshot of the guns in France, i taly, Serbia, Egypt or Mesopotamia. < )thers offered their services on hospi- 1 al ships under perpetual menace from ubmarine and mine. The call came D these women as to Joan of Arc or o Florence Nightingale. Give! live I and they gave willingly all hat they had-technical skill, health, teace of mind, sympathy and love. rhey suffered all the horrors and dis- resses of war, and no matter the tor- oent of the hour, wherever there was Tommy there was a woman-a war lurse. Thankfully, the worst of this work s over, and numbers of these women, o whom we all owe an incalculable lebt, are home again, some at this eason of re-union within the shelter of amily homes, and others, whom the var has robbed of relatives, patiently waiting—war-wracked or war-weary as lumbers are—for the fresh service that he New Year may reveal. There is no doubt of the good-will owards these noble women on the part of the men in our citizen Army; there 11. f .1 e i is no coudi or tne recognition ot their claims by the representatives of the People in the Government, and yet there is much, very much to do, to crystallise this just appreciation into acts of justice or of mercy. The Ministry QfLabour from the out- set has recognised the nation's obliga- tion in this connection, and soon after the Armistice established the Nurses' Demobilisation and Resettlement Com- mittee to bridge the gap between war service and reinstatement in civilian work. It is good news that over 2,000 of these returning Nurses have been re- absorbed into suitable work through the medium of this clearing house. Some have been appointed sisters or matrons in hospitals, others have been re- settled as matrons in children's schools, whilst one, I lately heard of, was dove- tailed into a position in Guernsey and was provided with a passport and a permit for hostel accommodation within 24 hours of the notification of the vacancy to the Committee. Another war nurse was fitted with a matronship to a Railway Servants' Orphanage within 48 hours of its notification, and fi \TJ> AfliATC kairA kfiAn 1_1 *a*-w "&&I. uaTV "U P¡Q\çu OO pftKXJJi nurses in Holloway, to substitute the wardresses' services for the sick. Such re-settlement, it must be re- membered, is being accomplished in the teeth of the wind of difficulties and obstacles. War nuses were only accepted for service at the Front if absolutely fit," and they have added valuable experience to their previous knowledge. Many have held positions of great responsibility during the war, being in charge of everything, from a pin to a coffin, in military hospitals con- taining up to 1,600 beds; others have shown extraordinary powers of resource and courage and endurance, and are covered with decorations from foreign States. They have come home to find their previous positions filIed, and no suitable vacancies available. They justly seek senior posts to which good salaries are attached, and the demand at present is mainly for junior nurses, who are remunerated at a low rate. There are still 1,000 to 1,500 war nurses to return to this country, here to seek a livelihood. On their behalf, as well as on that of those already awaiting re-employment, an appeal is made for good-will." Employers and employ- ing authorities are, therefore, asked to notify vacancies for hospital nurses, school nurses, nurse organisers, or nurse administrators to the Nurses' Demobili- sation and Resettlement Committee, 16, Curzon Street, Mayfair, W. 1.

Her desire to be honest in the treatment of subject peoples; her self- satisfied but -natured attitude to the foreigner. A natural capacity for toleration. The war is over—the war has begun. Another pihase in the world's evolution has ended; a new one begins. Standing between the two, oan we find faith to face the coming conflict, can we become just ordinarily human once moreP If not, the end of a pihase wall prove, too, the end of a civilisation. But there are some signs of promise even in these days of exhausted idealism. Men still have the power to resist tyranny, and human inatinot at its best rebels agadnsit the tales gods that have been set up. Soon, surely, the sflenrfe pro- test will become articulate.

Old slogans will be heard: "Freedom," "Equality," Com- radeship." From across the Atlantic comes a voice that promises to make a continent indis- soluble with the love of comrades, the life-long love of comrades." Walt. Whit- man, philosopher rather than poet (and he was both), has a message for this torn, distracted age. Politicians and preachers would do well to listen. At au events, the people will listen; for his voice is their voice; his hope their hope, his trust theirs at its deepest and best:- Have the elder races halted, Do they droop and end their lesson, wearied, Over there beyond the seas?
