SACRED CONCERT.—A concert in aid of the patriotic funds was given by the Carmarthen Male Voice Choir under the conductorship of Mr G. B. Isaac at the Empire Theatre on Sunday evening last. The chair was occupied by the Rev B. Parry Griffiths, and the follow- ing is the excellent and highly appreciated programme:—God save the King; Chairman's address; chorus, "Excelsior"; solo, "Gwlad y Canu." Mr W. Davies; solo, "Abide with me," Miss Hannah Jones; solo, "There is a green hill far away," Mr D. Morris; violin solo1, Mr W. A. Andrews, B.Sc.

Mr Stanley Isaac ably presided .at the piano. The Choir are now learning new music with a view of giving some more con- certs in aid of the War Funds before the end of the winter, and there is litttle doubt, judging from their recent concerts, but that they will be well patronized. TUTORIAL CLASS.—The members of the Car- marthen University Tutorial Class took a respite from lectures on the 16th inst. by in- dulging in a social gathering at the Crown Restaurant. Full justice was done to the well laden tables of edibles provided. A miscel- laneous programme followed consisting -of solos by Messrs D. R. Jones, J. Williams, and D. H. Jones and recitations by Messrs H. Griffiths (Hywel Myrddin), T. H. Morgan and Councillor Martin. The short story competi- tion was won by Mr T. A. Davies, and the winner of the extempore speech turned out to be Mr W. R. Hall for his oration on "Essays." Miss Cooke ae-tod as accompanist. During the evening various games were played. Mr W. King, B.A., the tutor, proved to be an ad- mirable chairman. A very enjoyable evening terminated with the singing of Auld Lang Syne. e n F,IK:VIA?Y-—The Secretary begs respect- uMy to acknowledge the receipt of the follow- ing,i eriodieate, Mrs Gwyrine Hughes.

DISPLAY AND FAROE.—On Tuesday evening eS'TcS tSJ>,Iay force was held at the Model School under the of the Car- marthen Cadet (C.L.B.) Company. The Chap- lain of the Company (Rev Griffith Thomas) oroupied the chair, and the accompanists were nr v n Brookes, F.R.C.O., and Master Dudley Davies. TCie room was crowded, and that the audience highly appreciated the work of the artistes was well demonstrated by their continual applause. It would be invidious to single out any particular performer, lie- cause one and all did their allotted part in the most creditable manner, and are worthy of the highest prai-ge.

CARMARTHENSHIRE LIVE STOCK
CARMARTHENSHIRE LIVE STOCK. Mr H. Jones-Daviea, J.P., Glyneiddan, a member of the Development Commission, pre- sided at a meeting of the Carmarthenshire Live Stock Committee on Saturday, when it was reported that Mr W. D. Williams, the live stock offioer, and the Inspector of the Board of Agriculture, had inspected the bulls and boars in the county, and his report was very satisfactory. There were in the county last year 24 bull societies and 17 of them were recommended to receive renewal of the grants, and avnother four on condition that nefr stock was obtained. Three fresh grants were also awarded. The question of establishing a Milk Recording Society in the county was con- sidered, and Mr Darnel Johns, the county agricultural organiser, was asked to take steps for the formation of such a society.

Carmarthen Refugees and the Committee. GRACEFUL LETTER OF THANKS. The following letter of thanks has been re- ceived from a Belgian refugee in Carmarthen. The fact that in the original the Flemish word "Bourgmestre" is used instead of the usual Fr^iich term "Maire" is explained by the nationality of the wcrit-er:- Monsieur le Bourgmestre,—Je tiene a vous presenter nos remerciemonts pour l'accueil qui nous a ete fait a Carmarthen.

LOCAL WAR ITEMS
LOCAL WAR ITEMS. Two more members of the Staff of the Mental Hospital have enlisted—Mr Islwyn Evans, Johnstown, attendant, and Mr David Thomas, assistant painter. Including the two who were with the Territorials and the Naval Reserve at th3 outbreak of the war, this makes 13 from the institution who are serving His Majesty. Lord Dynevior in a letter to the "Times" on Tuesday points out that the idea of the formation of a. bottalion of Welsh Guards- now decided on-was first mooted by Mr H. E. E. Philipps, of Picton Castle. Pte. Ra.rnett—whose death was mentioned in this column last ii-eek--ai)peai-s to have been killed by the kiclk of a horse. Pte. P. R. Bowen, son of Mr amd Mrs Bowen, Pantyglien Farm, Abergwili, Car- marthen, has returned home from the front, having been treated at Whitechape Hospital, Londos, for frostbite. Mr Bowen was in the Remount Department in France, having en- listed at the commencement of the war. He was a regular member of the Carmarthen Harlequins R.F.C. before entering Lampeter College, for which he also played regularly. Mr Bowen is a fine runner and has won several big prizes. Mr S. T. Hanks (Unionist agent for West Carmarthenshire), Priory street, has received a War Office appointment as assistant supt. of the War RemountiDepot at Carmarthen. Pte. Phillip Harrison Jones, of the 2nd Welsh, writing to his brother-in-law, Mr J. H. Evans, St. Davids Avenue, Carmarthen, says: "You asked in your letter if we were in that big fight. Yes we were, and the Ger- mans found us relady for them and they got a good deal more than they asked for that time. We lost a few men; but they lost a good deal more than we did. We also oaptured a lot of prisoners and they seemed pleased to have been caught. If you could only see some of us now. We take it as easy as we can. If you could see us at times you would think we were here for a holiday the w ay we carry on. It is only when we are fighting that we realise the seriousness of the affair." Pte. D. J. Harries, of the 2nd Welsh, who was invalided home suffering from frost bite is progressing favourably. Whilst in the base hospital he learned to crotchet 'Belgian belts' —a woollen band worked in designs of various flags, and others who have seen the work have picked it up, so that the idea, it "catching on." Mrs Thomas, of Friar's Park, has heard from her nephew, Pte. Stephen Thomas, of the hit Welsh, that he is again in the base hospi- tal wounded. He was invalided home, and had returned to the front. Sergt. Singer, of the Royal Fusiliers, whose home is in Cambrian place, Carmarthen, is now in hospital at Leicester. He has been three times to the front, and has now been sent back on sick leave. Sergt. Phillips, of the 6th Welsh—son of Mr Geo. Phillips, Red Lion Yard—has been pro- moted to the rank of Sergt.-Major. The Rev B. Ceithio Davies who is, chaplain to the Welsh troops at Cambridge (says the "London Welshman") is a popular figure at the Eastern University town. He paid a visit to London last week in order to be pre- sent at the Carmarbhenshire County Dinner and was very enthusiastic in his praise of the troops that are under his care. Ceithio means to secure all possible comforts for the men as well as to look after their spiritual needs.
The Churches i
The Churches. At the English Baptist Guild on the 10th inst. Mr J. Brunker, of the Model School, gave a lecture on "Nature Study" Mr J. Richards occupied the chair. The lecture was illus- trated by coloured drawings of plaints, by a large number of dried, mounted specimens, and also some fresh water shells, all of local origin. He first dealt with the various reasons which attracted children to poisonous plants, such as vivid colouring or distinctive taste. He then dealt with March plants, showing the Boy bean, which used to be sold in bundles in Carmarthen market for medicinal purposes, as it contained iron salts. Three carnivorous plants—the sundew, butterwort, and bladder- wort—were shewn and described, also a water plant of which the only known specimen found in this county was taken by the lecturer during the drought of 1911 from a pool in the Cothi. On Friday evening last the scholars of the Towyside and Cambrian-plgoe mission churches were entertained to tea at Priory-st. school, and which was kindly given by the following: Mrs Parry Griffiths, Mrs liar Edwards, Mrs Cottrell, Mrs Hardaker, Mrs Webb, Mrs Davies (1. Barn road), Mrs William Davies (Wood's row), Mrs Mary Jones (Wood's TQW), Misses Susan Jones, Dorothy Parry Griffiths, Freda Davies, Lily White, Lizzie Morgan, Sophie Rees, Rachel Davies, Cissie Thomas, Edie Rees, Gwenny Evans, Beatrice Thomas, Elsie C. Evans, Gwen Mason, Lizdie Phillips, Florence Lewis. May Lewis, .4nl Blodnen Lloyd, Messrs R. B. Davies, Cottrell, Bid- good, Dick Webb, Phil Cottrell, Sam Jones, and Marsh. The children were high in their praiise for the many beautiful things provided and each and everyon e thoroughly enjoyed themselves. After tea the scholars repaired to an adjoining room, where an excellent pro- gramme of music ( arranged by Mr Phil Cottrell) was gone through. The assistant superintendents of the respective schools at-, Mr Hardaker and Mr Sam Jones. The suc- cess of these missions is entirely dup to Mr R. B. Davies, who has worked unflinchingly for a good many years. Both mission churches are crowded every Sunday, and from all appearances it is expected that some means of enlarging the edifices will have to be under- taken- sihortly. On the 11th inst. the anual Home Mission- ary meeting was held at the English Wesleyan Chapel, Carmarthen. Mr J. F. Morris presi- ded. The Chairman referred to the fact that some 50,000 esleyans were at present serving in Kitchener's Ai--my.-The annual report was presented by the Rev Vincent Taylor, B.D., the resident minister, who stated that right throughout the Connexion some £ 39,000 had been expended on Home work, while there had been a slight deficit on the year's work- ings. Locally there had been an advance in the collections of the juvenile missionary asso- ciation.—Prizes for collecting on behalf of the association were then distributed by the chair- man to Betty illiams, Gertrude Jones. Nancy Jones, James Jeremy, Emily Winkle, and Lily Mee. A splendid address was then delivered by the Rev Crowle Smith, the depu- tation, who is attached to the Wesleyan Nottingham Mission. Mr Smith referred to the great problem which would confront the churches of the land after t,his great war was over. Christianity was at the parting of the ways and if the churches had no message of hope for the great mass of humaonity they would he swept away with all the other lum- ber which this war would put an end to. Al- though the missionary movement was over a century old, it was only during the last 25 ywvrs that what was known as the social con- science of thlo peopile had been thoroughly awakened. Prior to that time the church had not got into real touch with the lower ciasses and very little had been done by the churches for the social uplifting of the people. And even to-day there was a great gulf between the chuich and the great luttiss1 of humanity which would have to be bridged over before the church could be successful in her works. Another peril which confronted the churches was the awakening of the Far East. The peoples of Japan and China were coming over to this country to learn the arts of Western civilisation and were taking bark to their homes Western ideas coupled with Western vices.—The services were continued on Sun- day, the preacher being the Rev J. Bryant, of LI a nelly.
Carmarthenshire Education Committee
Carmarthenshire Education Committee. The. monthly meeting of the Carmarthen- shire Education Committee was held at the Guildhall on the 11th inst. Mr W. N. Jones, Tirydail, presided. A letter was read from the Board of Educa- tion refusing to recognise Miss Thomas as the head teacher of Bethlehem Council School, as she had not the necessary qualifications. Mr Mervyn Peel said that he was Viery sorry that the Board had nort approved of Miss Thomas, who although uncertificated was quite capable of teaching such a school. Now they had only an application from a man. He thought that all the members would agree that in the case of small mixed schools which had only one teacher that teacher should be a woman. ST. DAVID'S DAY. The Carmarthen Cymmrodorion wrote ask- ing the committee to purchase a sufficient number of St. David's Day booklets issued by the Board of Education to enable a copy to be placed in the hands of every child, at any rate in the higher classes. It was decided to order 300 copies. Y.M.C.A. APPEAL. The Y.M.C.A. authorities wrote that as their work with the troops involved considerable expense they requested the help of the com- mittee, by allowing five scholars in each class to collect Is each The work would be done after school hours, and the teachers would only act as intermediaries in taking over the sums collected by the children. < Mr B. Evans I do not think it is right to allow children to collect for charities at all. I think it is quite wrong. The Chairm,an:Theie is a resolution against it. GREAT SCARCITY OF TEACHERS. The Committee had invited applications for the following vacancies :— Head teachers: Ystradowen Council School (Infant Dept.); Blaentwrch Council School; Bethlehem Council School; Old Llanody Cli. of England School; Llangunnor Cli. of Eng- land School: Certificated assistants: Cefneithyn Council School; Llechyfedach Council School; Saron Council School; Tycroes Council School (2); Brynnmman Council School (2); Parcyrhun Council School; Blaelllau Council School; Llan gadork Ccunoiil School; Ponthenry Council School; Llandebie Ch. of England School. Uncertificated assistants: Canvay Council School; Garnant Council Schcol; Ystradowen Council Schaal (2) Brynsaron Council School HilMi&ld Council School; Mountain Council School; Hendy Council School; Burry Port Council School (2); Trimsaran Council School (2); Kidwelly Ch. of England School; Laugh- arne Ch. of England School; Llanddarog Ch. of England School; Tycroes Ch. of England School; Felinfo-eit Ch. of England School; Llan stephan Oh. of England School; Penyboyr Ch. of England School. In the majority of oases there were no applications. For seven vacancies there were solitary applicants. The following appoint- ments were made:— Ystradownwe Council School (Infant Dept.) Sarah Ellen Jones, Gwynfryn, Llandilo road, Brynamman. Bethlehem Council School: Joshua Davies, Gladstone House, Cwmann, Lampeter. Garnant Council School (Infant Dept.): M. A. Thomas, Maesyrhaf,, Llandovery. Ystradowen Council School (Mixed Dept.): Hannah Jane Evans, Penbank House, Bartley terrace, Plasmarl. Brynsaron Council School: Maggie Thomas, Glasfryn, Pencader. Llanddarog Ch. of England School: Ches- tina Morgans, Malvern Villa, Llanartliney. The. Chairman, in answer to questions, said that a glance at the educational papers would show that most education authorities were in the same plight. It wa& to be remembered that a large number of teachers at the present time are fighting for their King and Country. There were six applicants for th e post of supplementary teacher at Golden Grove. Miss Rachel M. Speke, of Llangunnor Sohool, was appointed. The salary is L30 a year. A SiEWING MISTRESS'S SALARY. Mr B. Evans drew attention to the case of a teacher at Llanvcrwys who had removed to Golden Grove. She had not been paid the salary as sewing mistress. The Clerk said that the rule was that such salaries were only paid from the time that application was made. Mr B. Evans said that he would move the suspension of the Standing Orders so as to allow of the alteration of the rule. The Chairman advised Mr Evans to give notice to bring the matter on at the next mating. MEDICAL WORK. A letter was read from the Board of Educa- tion stating that although Dr Hughes, the county medical officer, was called up for active military service in August, and that Dr R. L. Thomas had been on active service since October, no steps had been taken by the com- mittee to carry on the school medical service during their absence. It was of special im- portance at the present time that the health of the rising generation should be carefully watched and protected, and the Board re- gretted that the authority should have allowed thedr schcol medical service to lapse almost entirely. They suggested that temporary arrangements be made at once. The Board added that they saw no reason to modify their decision not to pay any grants for the year ending Mar, 1914. They were vehy doubtful whether they could pay the grants for the current year, having regard to the unsatisfac- tory character of the work during the earlier part of the year. Later in the afternoon a joint meeting of the Education Committee and Health Com- mittee decided to ask the medical officers for the various Unions to ,ac1: as school medical officers in tlieir districts. Dr Thomas, Liany- byther, was appointed to co-ordinate the work in regard to public health, and Dr Evuis, Llanelly, that with regard to school medical inspection.
