THE EMPIRE THEATRE.—The management of. the Empire Theatre is to be congratulated on its enter- prise in bringing "The Belle of New York" to Carmarthen.

During the early part of the week—Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday—the programme will include that magni- ficent film (in five parts), The Scales of Justice."

The horses are all young, and very saleable. The sheep are all bred on the farm, and are about as grand a lot as will be seen in any sale-ring this year. The auctioneers, Messrs. Lloyd and Thomas, intend this year to inaugurate a new system at their autumn sales. The implements to be sold in the morning, and all live stock at a certain fixed time.

COMFORTS FOR LOCAL SOLDIERs.-The first box from Carmarthen addressed to the Carmarthen soldiers in different hospitals abroad will be sent off this week, and there will be also sent a box contain- ing parcels from relations and friends, to the Dardanelles or elsewhere. Any relations or friends wishing to send parcels are requested to bring the same to the Receiving Office at the Guildhall on either of the following days: Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday, in this week, between the hours of 12 to 1 in the morning, and 5 and7 in the evening. Each parcel should be fully addressed and properly packed. Senders are requested to leave their names and addresses at the office, together with a list showing what each parcel contains, 'ihe committee of this fund are arranging that all the wounded Carmarthen men should be the first to receive comforts, and afterwards those in the trencher at the Dardanelles and France. The fund will be used exclusively for all the Carmarthen soldiers now at the front. Any relations not having sent in names and addresses of any soldiers in the front. should do so immediately to the secretary, Mr. Fred. G. Humphreys. At the meeting of the Executive Committee held on Monday, a vote of tsincere sym- pathy was passed with relations of soldiers who have died and with all soldiers wounded. HORSE IMPALED.—A runaway horse attached to the bus belonging to Mrs. Olive, Boar's Head Hotel, came to grief under peculiar circumstances on Friday afternoon last. Whilst waiting outside the gates of the railway station, the animal took fright of a motor-cycle and commenced to career wildly down the road. The bus-driver-Wm. Davies, of Friar's-purk—who was standing near by on the pavement, made a plucky attempt. to stop the horse by running after it and catching hold of its head, but he was knocked down and sustained severe injuries to the head and body. The animal con- tintued its wild gallop until it carne to the railway crossing near the bridge, when it lunged its fore- legs over the iron-railings near the crossing gates and got impaled. The spikes of the iron railings pierced deeply into its flanks, and held the horse firmly. It yelled piteously and as it was found impossible to extricate the' poor animal from its awful position, it had to be shot by Mr. Kenneth Walker. The unfortunate horse immediately fell dead to the ground, bringing a part of the railings down with it. The driver was taken to the infirmary, I but was not detained. RED CROSS HOSPITAL, CARMARTHEN.—The Secre- tary desires to acknowledge with many thanks gifts of vegetables, flowers, fruit, &c., from the follow- ing :-Lord Dynevor; Mrs. Howells, Penrheol; Mrs. David, Minerva House, Laugharne; Mrs. Harries, The Croft; Mrs. Johnson, Whitland; Mrs. Slader, Amroth; Mrs. Basker; Mr. Phillip Lewis, Mydrim; Miss Williams, Llangathen Vicarage; Mrs. Barker, Oaklands; Girls of the Model School, Carmarthen; Members of the English Wesleyan Church; Children of Laugharne National School; St. Peter's parish; Miss Cunningham, Laugharne; Mrs. and Lieut. J. G. Howell, Penbigwrn. RINK PICTUHEDROME.—For next week, the bill of fare at the Rink Pictur drome will be such as to fully uphold the high reputation of this popular place ai eiitertainmeiit, and that fact in itself is sufficient to guarantee- :ull houses nightly. On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday that fascinating three-reel American drama, entitled The Tip Off," will be shown, and in this. patrons will have a rare treat. It depicts m a masterly fashion the state of bribery and corruption alleged to exist in some of the American police departments, and is a picture full of educative interest. For Thursday, Friday, and Saturday the star item is entitled Wild Flower," produced by the famous Players Film Co., and featuring Miss Marguerite Clark, the well- known actress. It is really worth seeing and will no doubt attract large audiences. At each house during the week, the programme will also include the latest war films, and seekers of good entertain- ment should not miss to pay the irome a visit. SUDDEN DEATH.—On Saturday night last, about 11.30, Mrs. Elizabeth Rees, aged 82 years, a widow, fell down the stairs of her house, No. 5, St. Cathe- rine-street, Carmarthen, and broke her neck. The inquest was conducted at 5, Morley-street, on Monday, by the coroner, Mr. Thomas Walters. Mis§ Kate Haverland, dressmaker, relative of the deceased, said that she slept at the same house as Mrs. Rees did. About 11.30 p.m. on Saturday she heard a chair moving, and just afterwards heard three bumps. When she went to see what was L-Ae matter, she saw Mrs. Rees lying at the bottom of the stairs. Witness thought she was dead. Mrs. Ann Lewis, 82, St. Catherine-street, said she heard someone crying about 11.30 p.m. She then saw Miss Haverland crying and Mrs. Rees lying on the ,fl oor on her back, at the bottom of the stairs. Witness asked Miss Haverland what was the matter, and the reply was that the deceased had fallen downstairs. Mrs. Lewis thought that Mrs. Rees was dead.—Dr. Parry said he saw the deceased just after midnight. The cause of death wai that she had a broken neck, caused by falling downstairs. Death was instantaneous. A verdict of Accidental death was returned. It was thought that the deceased got up in order to go and see her step- daughter who was ill in bed in the next room, when she slipped and fell.
Lord and Lady Dynevor were amongst the visitors to the Llandovery Red Cross Hospital on Tuesday, and spent a considerable time conversing with the patients.

PENCADER AND DISTRICT KOTES
PENCADER AND DISTRICT KOT-ES During the coming, winter, evening classes will again be held at the Llanfihangel-ar-arth School. The sessions will commence on Tuesday, September 28th, and classes will meet next Tuesday and Thursday, at 7.30 and 9.30 p.m. The subjects are English, hygiene, arithmetic, and reading. Intend- ing students should enrol as early as possible. One of our local singers, Miss Beattie Richards, Glendale, Pencader, has added to her already long list of successes at eisteddfodau. At Voelcastell, Cross Hands, on Saturday she won the open soprano solo, the prize for which was 10s. 6d. and a hand- home medal with gold centre. We extend hearty congratulations on her performance. Miss Richards, who possesses a beautiful soprano voice, is much in demand at. concerts, &c., in the district. On and after Thursday next, 16 ui inst., the Llanfihangel-ar-arth Post Office will be closed on Thursdays from 1 p.m. for the weekly half-holiday. In future, the shop will also be closed on that day, instead of Wednesday. Probably local shopkeepers will fall in line and arrange to close on Thursday, that being the only convenient day for closing the Post OTfice, to fit in with the scheme for closing rural post offices on one half-day during the week. On this half-day telegrams, &c., will be delivered from the neighbouring offices, and so inconvenience in this respect will be reduced to a minimum.
LLAMMOM NOTES The schools of the district have done very credit- ably in the Entrance and Bursar Examinations this year. Tumble School won two free places, Cwm- gwili School one free place, Llechyfedach School three free placet., and Cefneithin School one free place at the Llanelly and Carmarthen Intermediate Schools.

He is a son of the late Mr. John Davies, Cambrian-place, Carmarthen. He enlisted in the 2nd/4th Welsh and was transferred into the first line. Pte. W. R. Davies, a student at the Carmarthen Training College. He is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Davies, Aberaman, Aberdare. Pte. L. Nicholas James, a student at the Carmar- then Training College. He is a son of Mr. and Mrs. David James, Abernant, Aberdare. Sapper Lewis Davies, Welsh Field Co., Royal Engineers, has been wounded at the Dardanelles. He lived in Union-street, Carmarthen, and was in partnership with his brother as building contractors. He was superintendent of the Lammas-street Chapel Sundav School and treasurer of the Carmarthen Liberal Club. Pte. Dan Davies (late Joseph's Sawmills); now at Charing Cross Hospital, London.

Thomas, son of Mr. andMrs. Thomas, 57, St. Catherine-street; wounded by a shot from a sniper; the bullet entering his face half an inch below the ear, and coming out the other side. He is now in hospital at Taplow, Bucka. THE ROYAL ENGINEERS. Writing from the Dardanelles to his brother, Mr. Sidney Lewis, Lewis Stores, Pontyberem. Sapper Arnold Lewis, Welsh Field Co., Royal Engineers (who was formerly a clerk at the London City and Midland Bank, Carmarthen, states:— We had anticipated a warm reception on landing from the Turks, but so well had they been driven from these regions at the point of the bayonet, that we effected our purpose without any interruption. The coast is very shallow and pontoon bridges had been erected as a landing stage. The operations were carried out most methodically and speedily. On reaching terra firma" we were taken up to some bushy ground allotted to our company and made ourselves comfortable for the night. Next morning we had a visit from an unwelcome guest, viz., a German taube, which no doubt located the position of the troops in this part, as we were severely shelled later on. German and British aeroplanes have become quite common to us now, as we see some every day. The company moved on to the firing line the next day. where they arc occu- pied in making advance and communication trenches. The headquarters sectio: of which the orderly-room staff comprise the greater part, remained in the same position till Sunday, when the shell firing be- came too dangerous and we moved on to the crest of a hill known for military purposes as Hill 10. This is within two miles of our firing line. Our work at the base is to assist in drawing and carrying the rations and stores daily from the beach "to nead- quarters and escort them tc the sections at the firing line in the night. All this transport is done on pack-mule^, as there are no roads. However, things are improving daily and roads are being made. Our chief danger in this work is from snipers, who are most cunning and daring, and even dare come within yards of our trenches. They perch themselves on trees, carrying with them food for three or four months and an appropriate supply of ammunition. They have silencers on their rifles, so that it is almost impossible to find them. Their shooting is most accurate, and they have accounted for many corpses. The Turkish artillery, which, as you are aware, is managed by German officers, is very good, and is also a source of great danger to us. They fire, like ourselves, shrapnels and high explosives. Our artillery, ably supported by the big naval guns. however, is far in advance of t'heir best, but they have such concealed positions that it is impossible to discover their batteries. It seems they have guns mounted at the entrance of caves, and when these fire. they recoil out of danger. As for the Turkish soldier, his fighting prowess compares very badly with that of a British soldier. The Turks dread the bayonet, and run in disorder when an advance is made. They are forced to do what they are doing by German officers." 'CARMARTHEN JOURNAL" IN THE TRENCHES. Writing to Miss Harries, Chemist House, Aber- gwili, Pte. Tom Roberts, l/4th Welsh (who was a clerk at the Land Valuation Office, Carmarthen), states:— Just a hurried line to thank you for the three JOURNALS, which I received on Monday, the 23rd inst. I was delighted to have them, as you can imagine, as we had heard nothing of the district since we left home, and I read them right through, even down to the advertisements. Bullets and shrapnel were bursting all around our little dug- out as six of us Carmarthen boys were reading them, but we took hardly any notice of this, as our little dug-out is fairly safe if we keep low down. We were as excited as little schoolboys reading over every little bit of news as gleefully as if we were out on a picnic. What an advertisement for the CARMARTHEN JOURNAL it would be if only our photos could be taken there. so far from home. We were more interested in the news than in the shells of the enemy for the time being. We are now about 600 yards behind the firing line for a few days. but it is quite as dangerous there, as shells and snipers are ever with us. We are still in the trenches though, tand we are lookir forward to being sent to the base for a few days' rest. We have had a long spell here without relief, and we could do with a wash and a shave-I am afraid you would not recog- nise me if you saw me in thetrenches. Last Sunday we had to advance to our right, and then dig our- selves in under heavy shell and rifle fire, but we did the job so well and quickly that very few casualties occurred. I am getting quite an expert at digging these days—but fancy doing it on a Sunday. If there is no rest for the wicked, there is certainly no rest for the man in the trenches. We have had no bread since we landed, only biscuits, but I have grown to like them alright now. I shall be home long before Christmas with luck, as we are going to win out here, although the Turk is a better soldier than is generally believed—still he is going to lose this trip anyway." P.S.—I have been in the thick of the scrap all along, barring two days I was sick. Have had some lucky escapes. A CHAPLAIN'S LETTER. wl" The following are extracts from an interesting letter written by the Rev. Walter Williams, rector of Trefnant, Denbighshire, to his sister, Mis Wil- liams, Glynnoddfa, Henllan. Mr. Williams is a son of the late Rev. Evan Williams. R.D., rector of Nantcwnlle, and broiner-inlaw of the rector of. Llanfairorllwyn. He is at present at the Darda- nelles, sharing the dangers and inconveniences of our brave defenders, and ministering unto them. He volunteered to go out without having any camp training:— I have now had a fortnight's experience of the war, and it is not altogether a pleasant one. We have been dumped on the new landing place, and have made steady progress; at the same time we are meeting with strenuous opposition. We know nothing of what is going on elsewhere. This is a. desolate place with very few habitable houses, and the heat middle day is intense at times, but the early morning and evening are delightful. I am still with the Queen's Regiment, to which I was -)ttaclied for the voyage, and am now with them in the fighting line. I usually follow the medical officer, and make my quarters at his dressing station, so as to be in touch with the men. We are now 300 or 400 yards in the rear of the trenches, and are in the thick of the fighting and constantly under fire. We are much harassed by snipers, who are respon- sible for casualties. of our officers ar wounded, and missing, and many of the men are suffering from dyssentery. The men appreciate very much what one tries to do for them. One holds services just as opportunity occurs. Sundays are like other days out here. I have had some extra- ordinary seryl?es, and in curious .places. Last Sunday evening I went to a neighbouring district, and collectc1 "11 tS> men round, and had the service in a eowshrr1. We were so near the Turks, we were unable to sing hymns at the service, so I just read them out and asked the men to choose them as we went along, and they were singularly happv in their selection. W e have no service books, so I ask the men to join in the parts they know. There is a good deal of burying, which has to be done very early in the morning and late in the evening, We (1) (2) (1) Pte. Charlie Jenkins, l/4th Welsh Regiment, killed at the Dardanelles. When war broke out he was a collier at Tumble. He was formerly employed as a farm servant with Mr. David Hinds, Cwnin Farm, Carmarthen. Mr. Kennard John. son of the late Mr. James John. Town Clerk of Carmarthen, and Mrs. John. He enlisted immediately on the outbreak of war in the 10th Battalion, Royal Fusiliers, a regiment composed of men from the Stock Exchange and City Offices. The battalion left for France weeks ago. have to rough it fearfully. Of course, we never take our clothes off. We just put 011 overcoat and squat down in our dug-outs with a little straw under us for the night. We had rain last night for the first r time, which made matters very unpleasant. If we have much wet. I don't quite know how I shall fare. So far, I am alright. We have none of the comforts and conveniences of France here. and the fare is very rough. No mail has reached us yet, and it is now six w eks since we left England. We are all thirsting for news of the outside world." A CHEERY LETTER. Writing to his friend, Mr. Thomas Fivans, Glan- towy House, Tumble, Sergt. J. E. Davies, l/4th Welsh, states:— We had a nice reception as soon as we set foot on land. I thought my end had come, but now I don't mind much how near the shells drop, so long as they don't drop upon me, for they might spoil my complexion. Talk about a charge of dynamite in coal! It's not in it. When our naval guns get into action, it makes us all feel glad they were playing on our side. Our brigade was ordered to attack on the 10th. We lost very heavily, but the terrible Turk is a good sprinter, when there are bayonets about. I don't know why, because he is big enough. We were relieved last night after being 18 day- in the trenches, but it is not very safe here, as our friends still insist on shelling us with their gpns. You ought to see us making a rush for our dug-outs when we hear the shells coming." We have received a letter from Pte. A. Lloyd. who is in hospital at Cardiff, denying a statement made in a letter published to the effe« that he and Pte. Maurice (4th Welsh) were carrying dixies on 1 the occasion of the landing at Sm-la Bay, when a shell struck them. At_ tnat time I was attached to my own ompany," He writes, and I did not sea Maurice at all. War is horrible enough without attempting to unduly exaggerate the accounts of it. THE KING'S OWN REGIMENT. Pte. J. T. Davies. King's Own Regiment, writing from the Dardanelles to his father, Mr. J. Davies, Bontydolau, Maesyerugiau. states:- We have been through some severe fighting, but, thank God. I am saved so far. although our regi- ment suffered heavy loss. I must say, the Turks are daring devils, but once we chase them over these hills with our bayonets, they will soon be on the run, and by they can run. too. The • country is very rough and hilly. You know well the hills and valleys from Felingwm up to Brechfa and Abergorlech and Cwm Brithir and Hendreinion, and from there on to Llydiadnenog. Well, we are fighting the Turks on very much similar ground to that. It takes some doing to shift the devils from these hills, but every time we have attempted, we have so far succeeded, but not without losing hun- dreds of lives. One is much better off in France than here. There is everything convenient for soldiers in France, but here we are in a very unpleasant country, but things will improve once we get the enemy over these hills." The following are included in the official casualty lists issued bv the War Offici, Welsh Regiment. 4th Battalion (T.F.).:—984 Pte. F. Davies. 4052 Pte. J. Davies. 2502 Pte. M. Davies, 5280 Pte. T.
