BETHEL GUILD.-On Thursday evening last week a moat interesting paper was read to the members of Bethel (C.M.) Chapel Yoang People's Guild by Mr R. H. Evans, Cradoo road, on the Rev Jobn Jones, Talysarn, one of the most famous of Welsh preachers. Miss Lit tie Powell presided. Remarks were made by Messrs R. Rees, Howell Powell, Llewelyn Williams, Danycefn. Owen Evans, and Griffith Roberta. A vote of thanks was aooorded Mr Evans for bis instructive paper. WBLSB DitAKA,-A performance of a drama- tized version of Daniol Owen's great novel "Rhys Lewis" was given under the auspices of the Brecon Welsh Society at the Town Hall, on Wednesday evening. Although the performance was wholly in Welsh, and bad been given in part only a few weeks previously, it drew a good bouse, the ball being three. fourths full. The President of the Society, Mr W. H Jones Parry, N.P. Bank, presided, and Professor Joseph Jones gave an ontline in English of the several Aots for the benefit of any English friends present. Mr P. H. Evans looked after the stage generally. The cbarac- lew were taken as follows:-Rbys La wis, Messrs Groffydd Roberts and Urias Phillips, B.A.; Mari Lewis (Rhys' mother), Miss M, A. Rowland Bob (Rhys' brother) and Williams (student). Mr G. T. JCDes; Wil Bryan (Rhys'j friend), Mr David Price, B.A.; Marged Pitars, Norse, A. M. Morgan; Sergt Williams, Mr Martin Thomas; Tomos Bartley (shoemaker and original character), Mr R. H. Evans; Barbara (Tomos' wife), Mr Llew Evans Miss Hughes (the shop), Mrs J. L. Rees, N P. Bank; Proffessor at the College, Mr R. V. Williams; James Poweil (Rhys' ancle) and Niclas, Mr P. H. Evans; SUB (Wil's sweetheart), Nurse .Morgan. All did tbeir parts well, and the Sudience was kept in good humour throughout. The spontaneous appreciation of many bits of the acting was a sufficient mark of its good quality. The Welsh people of Brecon now kidow that there is room in their town for the -crocasional production of good Welsh plays, and it is to be hoped that the Welsh Society will give its farther consideration to this aspect of its rapidly vtidecing field of labour. THE PALACH.-The II Palaoe "has now been acquired by two local gentlemen in the persons of Mr Doncai2 of the George Hotel and Mr M. ETans. manager at Mr Peregrine's. They bave been fortanate in securing the services of lit R. F. Jones as manager.

He has already secured eome startling exclosives for the Palace, I which wi!! be advertised in doe course in our columns. Patrons of this ball may look for. ward to some surprise.

CHAMBBR or TRADE.—It was reported at the cteeting of the Chamber on Tuesday night that 23 new members had been enrolled since the beginning of the year. PROMENADE blPROVEJlENT .-Mr Adcock brought forward the question of the improve- ment of the promenade at the meeting of the Chamber of Trade on Tuesday night, remarking that it was a matter that should be kept alive and the work accelerated. It was very impor. tant that the place should be kept in a present- able appearance, especially as they might expect some visitors to the town shortly. The work of tipping soil should be proceeded with imme. diately, because the place was very unsightly at present. He proposed that a letter be sent to the Town Council asking them to accelerate the tvork of improving the promenade. Mr Sam Crarratt seconded.—The Chairman remarked that :t was very desirable that more seats should be placed at the upper end of the promenade. Mr Adcock stated that in some small town, he saw the other day, tradespeople presented seats for the promenade and had a plate on them stating that they were so pre- heated. (Laughter). It would be a good ad. vertisement for tradespeople. It was eventually decided to send a letter to the Town Council asking them to accelerate the work on the promenade. ACCIDENT.—Mr Harry Lewis, Llanfaes. an employee at the Midland Railway Engine Shed, met with au accident last week, when engaged with another man in lowering an engine. The bandle of the pulley slipped out of his mate's hands and he jumped for it, but missed it, with the result that he was badly knocked on the arm by the handle. The limb was fractured and he was taken to the Infirmary where his in- juries were attended to. DEATH OF A VILLAGE BLACKSMITH.—On Tuesday last the death took place at 63, The Struet, of Mr Thomas Hargest, who was for a number of years the village blacksmith at Troedyrharn. Deceased was about 75 years of age and the funeral took place yesterday (Wed- nesday) afternoon at Brecon Cemetery. QUESTION OF BILLETING.—At the meeting of the Chamber of Trade ou Tuesday night, Mr Oscar Watkins in the chair, Mr Ewart Wise again brought forward the question of billeting of troops in the borough, and remarked that fee feared billeting would automatically fall Abrough owing to troops going under canvas in

"OLD SOLDIERS" AT ADEN. The Breokcockshires at Aden are evidently geUing qoite Ie old soldiers." For example, a letter received on Tuesday (dated the 2nd inst) tells bow a chum of the writer had just got on a sole jOb."

A snip," indeed, with the battalion having hard training in great heat, and firing courses starting at 6 a.m. to catch the cool." Here are two liues of genuine descriptive writing by the average Territorial (no journal. istio decoration or trimming):— There has been great excitement in the native village this week. They have got some kind of a laic on. I tioppose its an annual thing with them. I was up there last night. Native women dancing, and men playing those tom-toms (drums), and gambling tables all over the place. I don't like going there too often, as the smell is too bad. There is no sign of us going from here. It was all the talk a bit ago about us going from here, but I its knocked in the be.d,"

RANDOM REFLECTIONS. On the Eppynt Hill Side. A few days ago I was tempted by the fine weather to visit an old friend of mine far on the wilds of the Eppynt Hills. Proceeding along the quiet lane, the new life of nature attraoted attention everywhere, as creation was rapidly shedding ber winter garb for her new and more attractive spring attire. Over six months bad passed since I last trudged along this winding road to watch a sheep-dog trial at the Drover's Arms. The recent talk of the members of the Brecon end Radnor Farmers' Union about the soaroity of labour on tbo land, which was supposed to bR due to the patriotism of the sturdy eons of the soil, had convinced me that the land bad been deserted, and that everything was either at a standstill in the rural districts or wholly en. trusted to the old people and the fair sex, as intbeoase of France. In the early autumn we were toll that thpre would be a great shortage of bread in Great Britain, and the Government made a request to the farmers to return to the cultivation of the land, and after snch an appeal to pattiotio Wales one could expect to see extensive fields covered with green blades of wheat. I viewed the country roond as far as the naked eye could see, and out of the thousands of acres under observation there were not a dozen in all under wheat. The war,which,presses so hard on the resources of this country has not yet stirred the hillside farmer. Neither bas he suffered from the scarcity of farm labour, as he has to day the same number of men working on the land as he had twelve months age. The war is of no interest to him according to bis attitude, and in these remote districts thejonly true interest in the struggle is taken by those who have sons or relatives serving. The farmers living in the rural parishes between Builth and the Eppynt are hardly touched in that way. The sturdy farmer and his sons, as well as the male servants, are all here whistling merrily as they work in the fields, and the women sing joyfully as they discharge their household duties amid the peace- ful surroundings of the Eppynt, heedless of the sufferings of the women of France and Belgium. This does not happen because the British matron or maid lacks the milk of human kindness, or the spirit of patriotism but because her religious sentiments are opposed to war, and she is ignorant of the fact that there is any danger confronting the old country. The old idea, which was very strong in this distriot a hundred years ago, lingers in some places to this day, that only the prodigal sons make the British Army, When recruits are secured from rural districts 95 per cent. of them are the best educated men, and practically have either been eduoated at public schools or the county schools.. These stirring times, when England is in final grip with the most powerful and cruel nation she has yet had to fight, have not brought home any anxiety to the crofters of the Eppynt side, and they feel tbat all CO§B well as long as conscrip- tion is avoided. The war has increased their revenue. The great increase in the prices of coal and provisions has bad but little effect on them, as the high prices of stock have more than compensated them for such increases It is not so with the rural workmen whom I met, as they find it very bard to make ends meet. They complained that they could not purchase now with 15s as much as they could purchase twelve months ago with ten shillings. Their strongest complaint was about the increase in the cost of food. When I reached the rural school I met a pale faced mother, and it was not long before I found out that her only son had been at the front for some months, and she was anxious both about the safety of her own son and the final issue of the war. Her anxiety was clearly great, but it was with a thrill of pride she spoke of her brave boy who bad given up all in the defence of his country. My quest this day was taking me to the highest inhabited house in South Wales, 1,400 feet above the level of the sea. Soon after I breasted the open hill I saw the Llan- gammarch Hounds approaching and a lady rode by on a foaming steed. I recognised her as the wife of one of those brave men who are holding a tight grip over the German Fleet in the North Sea and longing to try conclusions with it; and was pleased to see her taking care of her health with the best of all exercises, though living a daily life of anxiety and sus- pense. At last I arrived within a short distance of my destination, and here sitting on a stone on the side of the road I saw au octogenarian whom I met on the same spot in May, 1913, watching the Yeomanry who were manoeuvring on the Eppynt during their camp at Llangam- march Wells. He predicted that day that in a few years there would be no need for soldiers, as the time of war was over. It was here I also met on that beautiful May Day in 1913, the Hon. Ormsby Gore, M P., who was with the troops at the time-the heir to the House of Harlech and a stout fighter for the Church in the Commons House of Parliament. The troops were scattered over the hill at the time, playing at the game of war. It was thus and then that the old man at the cottage pronounced his belief that the sword would be converted very soon into the ploughshare and that the lion and the lamb would play together in peace; but, like many others, to-day he is convinced of his error, and condoles himself by saying that he wishes he could be of some service to his country, and fight for old England in the same way as his brother fought at Waterloo I The old man was confident that the war would soon be over the arms of Britain were bound to triomph r The strength of this country, he said, was in the Bible, and he smiled disdainfully when I said that Crom- well's orders to bis men were, Trust in God, but keep your powder dry." Although living 1,400 feet above the sea level and far from any busy centre, he knew a great deal of war news, and told me how be bad been touched by the letters of Archdeaoon Bevan, who is with the Territorials at Aden. He considered that many of tbe boys who got tbeir living on the land had joined the army from that distriot, but when be gave a list they were counted on bis two fingers. Like many others he hinged his hopes on Lord Kitchener and the British "mighty ships," as be called tbem. No one can wonder as bis happy life when one strolls on the high Eppynt in weather like we had last week, when all creation seemed alive with the thousand songs of the hillside birds. It is not the lack of patriotism or courage that keeps the young crofters of the hillside at home, but lack of knowledge that their country is in need of them. B. W.
