The Churches. Last Thursday's meeting at the Tabernacle C.E. Society was the monthly consecration meeting, and there was a large attendance. The roll of members was called by the Secre- tary (Mr T. J. Evans) and the responses wc>) made by the members. The Society is now arraging for the Christmas vacation, nd after next Thursday's meeting, when Miss Nancy Morris is due to speak, there will be no further meetings until the usual watch night service, which wiil beheld on New Year's eve. • On Thursday, December 7th, a splendid pro- gramme of musical drills, recitations, solos, dialogues, etc., was given in the Salvation Army Hall by the Band of Loye children. The hall was packed to its utmost seating accom- modation. Olr R-ees Davies was the chairmas. By special request ofq numeroous friends it has been decided to repeat the programme on the lltli January, with the addition of several itoms. Mr J. F. Morris will preside. The Christmas gift service was held at the English Wesleyan Schoolroom on Sunday. The gifts included woollens, chocolates, cigarettes, etc., for the members of the Church and the Sunday School serving with the Colours, -In address was given by tho Rev T. C. Hilliard, Llanelly, and a solo was sung by Miss M. J. Thomas. The "Roll of Honour" was read, and as the names o the dead were called, the con- gregation rose to. their feet and the National Anthem was sung. *#* On Wednesday evening the Young People's Guild spent a very pleasant evening at Union street, when a lecture was delivered by Miss Decie Jones, B.A. Mr W. Scurlock ably acted as chairman, and Miss Jones's subject was "Shakespeare's Lite and Works." She cut out a path for herself which was most original In her dealing with the subject. Not only did she give an liisto^bal sketch of the Shakes- peare that lived and died at Stratford, but she also brought before the audience the living Shakespeare—the Shakespeare that will ever live—and made her hearers feel a new iterest in his compositions. She also brought with her some of her pupils from the County Girls School, who gave very interesting sketches j from the different plays, and to whom all felt ) the deepest gratitude. Many selections were given by Miss Nellie Chapman, Miss Gwen Jones, and Miss Dorothy Ki tley-amongst others tho portion of "King John" where Prince Arthur pleads with Hubert, of "Mac- beth" where Macbeth and Lady Macbeth wickedly plan their ascension to the Scottish throne, and the most interesting of all the portion of the Merchant of Venice, where Old Gobbo comes to visit his son, Launcelot, who was growing tired of serving the miserly Jew. Miss Lilly Thomas, of the- Grammar School, and Miss May Jones gave several renderings of Shakespearian songs. All were delighted to see Alderman J. Lewis, J.P., aud Miss Lewis entering, as the chairman remarked. It is not often a Mayor is seen at the Union street Guild, and all are proud of him for lie interest he takes and the patronage he gives to every worthy cause. 1110 Mayor proposed a vote of thanks to the speaker, and said that he had expected much from Miss Jones and was not by any me-aolts disappointed. The pro- position was seconded by Mr Eb. Davies. A vote of thanks to the chairman was proposed by Mr Tom Jones, seconded by Mr D. Jones, The meeting was closed with the singing of Hen Wlad fy Nhadau. »*# I The monthly meeting of the C.M. churches I of Carmarthenshire was held at Hettws last Wednesday under the presidency of Mr John Thomas, 0a.ael Newydd, Llanelly. There were many ex-officers present, and the secretary, Rev Thomas Philips, Siloh, Llandovery, Reports from district meetings were confirmed Tho "ymwolwyr" appointed for 1917 in the Carmarthen district are the Rev Samuel Evans Cwmdwyfran, and Mr T. Bengough, Zion, Car- marthen. The call of Bethania, Whit land, to the Rev Emrys Davies, B.A., has been ratified. The deacons elect were admitted members f the monthly meeting. The "JTlllwehvyr" of the Llanpumpsaiiit district are the Rev B. !3. Griffiths, Conwil, and Mr Henry Davies. Panty bwloh. Delegates were appointed to represent the county in the Associtions that will be hell in 1917. The subject of dividing the county was discussed. Arrangements were made for the next meeting. Letters of condolence were oddressod to familis and members in affliction. WWW The Rev J. T. Job, C.M. pastor and poot, has not yet answered the call given him ',y Pcntowr Church, Fishguard. The length 0t time se-ùms to indicate a negative reply, but we hope and trust however that our fears are built on the sands, and that a Job will again lead the churches in the South as was done in tho last century. The Rev J. T. Job is a nephew of the late Dr T. Job, Conwil. I We have been informed that the Rev Cunilo Davies, of Llanidloes, will become pastor of C.M. Church in the district. The name of the church has not yet been published. Before Mr Davies went to the North, he was pastor in Glamorganshire. He is a brother of the lata Dr Davies, Llansawel. #*» The Campbell controversy is still a leading topic in theological circles and letters continue to appear on the subject constantly in the Press. Free Churches now according 10 Campbell have no authority to preach or nd- minister Communion. The Pope declares the 6ame nonsense about him and his brethren. The first great preacher of the. Gentiles was a heretic, and Luther and tho writer of Hebrews wicked Nonconformists! The Rev Bree, D.D., rector of Allesley, is the oldest clergyman in Holy orders. Ho celebrated his 94th birthday recently. Ho was ordained 69 years ago. and is the fifth succeo- sive member of tho Bree family to hold die rectory of Allesley. > -Air Lewis J aims, of Bontynyswen, C.M. ministerial student of the Old College School, is now attending classes in the Presbyterian CoUego, having passed the entrance exam last August.

Kidwelly Notes. On Monday last while a young man named Abel John Williams was engaged in shunting a goods train at the Kidwelly siding, which abuts the main G.W. line, he was caught by the 2.15 ex-Carmarthen empty stock train, and instantly killed. The body was badly mu- tilated, both legs being amputated below the knee. The remains were reverently gathered under the direction of P.S. Hodge Lewis, who with Dr T. R. Griffiths, was promptly on the scene, and conveyed to deceased's lodgings n West End terrace, there to await an inquest. The unfortunate victim was only 23 years of age. and had been employed at the railway station as porter a,nd shunter successively for about three and a half years. His father is a ganger in the service of the G.W.R. at Fish- guard Harbour. Wii* The death occurred on Wednesday the 6th inst. at the Boot and Shoe Inn, the residence of his daughter, Mrs Wm. Jones, of Mr Jamos Williams, formerly of Morriston, at the ad- vanced age of 83 years. At Morriston, where he spent the major portion of his life, he was greatly respected. A staunch Baptist he had held office as deacon for 18 years at Zion C'liafel and five years at Zoar. The funeral took place on Monday last, the body being conveyed by rail and interred in Llangyfelach Church Cemotery. A service was conducted at the hOouse iby the Rev E. J. Herbert, C.M., prior to the removal of the corpse. The Red Cross Ambulance Class instructed by Dr T. R. Griffiths, recently completed its course of "first aid" work, and on Sunday last the members were examined at the Town Hall by Dr Evans, Llanelly. The result of the examination is looked forward to with pleasant anticipations. The Mayor of Kidwellv (Coun. Loosmore) has just experienced a. sad bereavement in the death of his aged mother, who resided it Burry Port, and the sympathy of the burgesses is extended to him in his grief. The remains of the lato Mrs Loosmore were laid to rest in St. Mary's Parish Churchyard on Monday the 11th inst. We hope to give a. report of the funeral next week.
Obituary. PTE. W'ITJIAM EVANS. Another Carmarthen boy has given his life in the service of his country in the person of Private William Evans, son of Mr and Mrs Evans, grocers, Bridge street. Although he had left Carmarthen for Taunton many years ago, his many friends will regret the news of Ins death, which came to hand last week. He was attached to the Transport Company (the Caterpillar section) and had been in France for over a year, and had taken part in many engagements, but latterly had returned to Avonmouth, with the intention of proceeding to Saloniea, when he was seized with a fatal illness. Our sympathy is extended to the sorrowing widow and her family, together with his parents in their sorrow. Pte. Evans was buried on the 6th inst. with military honours at Bristol.
IjCarmarthen Appellants Medical Board
Carmarthen Appellants & Medical Board. INSTRUCTION STITLDISREGARDEI). At Carmarthen Rural District Tribunal on Wednesday, the Chairman (Mr John Jones) complained that the instructions given that men oil whose behalf appeals were made should appear before the medical board, were being disregarded, and said the only thing the Tri- bunal could do if they refused was to consider them as Class A. men. Mr Herbert Evans, St. Clears, agricultural representative, said the failure was due. to the instructon given to the appellants not being sufficiently clear. Tliey ought to bear in mind that they were dealing with W'elsh-speaking people. The Chai rman: Surely the men could isk somebody if they are notolear on the point. We have called attention to the matter several times, and it has been reported in the Press.

The large number of tradesmen of the town, of his fellow workmen, and of the mem- bers of the Rechabite Tent that attended his funeral, which took place on Saturday after- noon, was a tribute of the respect and esteem in which he was held.
