PENCOED. Inquest.—We are asked to state that the medi- cal evidence at the inquest last week on Mr. D. Williams was to the effect that death was due to "fatty degeneracy of the heart," and not pri- marily to the fall from the bicycle. Court Leet.—The Court Leet for the Manor of Coity Wallia was held at Pencoed on Wednes- day. Mr. J. M. Randall, steward of the Manor, presided.—Mr. H. J. Randall said that as a re- sult of the presentment made at the last Court against the proposed Provisional Order for the regulation of the Commons of the Manor, the Order had been revised so as to include a pro- vision that all free tenants, customary tenants, md residents of the manor had the right to oasture all manner of beasts without limit on the commons. The amended Order had been. approved by the lfcal authorities in the district ind the people generally, but it was now neces- sary to obtain the signatures of two-thirds of hp persons iiitere,tc-,I.-After Mr. H. J. Ran- lalPs statement, Mr. Griffith Edwards, foreman, on behalf of the jury, read a presentment ap- proving of the Order as amended.
PORTHCAWL AND SOUTHERNDOWNI RESTS
PORTHCAWL AND SOUTHERNDOWN I "RESTS." The annual meeting of subscribers to the Porthcawl and Southerndown Convalescent Rests was held at the Southerndown Rest on Thursday. Col. J. Pictou Turbervil, J.P., pre- sided, Messrs. D. T. Alexander, G. H. Elking- ton (Penarth), Mrs. Norman (Cardiff), Mrs. John Da vies (Maeetegl, and Mrs. Llewellyn (Baglan), were nominated to vacancies on the general committee. Mr. D. T. Alexander said he would like to withdraw his name in favour of Mr. Evan Jones, Cwmbach, who could be of- the greatest srvice to the committee in enlisting the aid of the working community, while he. (Mr. Alexander) might not be able to do much more than visit that institution while he was staying at Southerndown and make suggestions. The Chairman said that as there was not an- other vacancy to which Mr. Jones could be elec- ted, deference must be paid to the wish of Mr. Alexander, and the nominations were adopted, the name of Mr. Evan Jones being substituted for that of Mr. Alexander. The Chairman said that Mr. Alexander had been a subscriber to the institution for many years, and whether he was on the committee or not the committee would be grateful if he would visit the institution whenever he could and give them the benefit of any suggestions he might care to make. Lord Tredegar was elected president on the motion of the Chairman, seconded by Mr. G. H. Elking- ton, and supported by Mr. D. T. Alexander. In moving the' adoption of the report and statement of accounts, the Chairman drew at- tention to the increase in the cost of mainten- ance. Food, fuel and washing amounted to Is. 8d. per day, lis. 8d. per head per week, being an increase -of 4id. fcer head per day on the cost in 1915. It was accounted for by increased prices during the war. It was, said the Chair- man, a very serious matter, and economical management by the committee was essential. OiOing to the increased cost of living, the Com- mittee recommended in the report that a weekly entrance fee of 2s. 6d. be charged in res- pect of each and every ticket used by and for a patient until further notice. Tickets to annual subscribers would, however, be issued at the old rate of 10s. 6d. each. Mr. G. E. Blundell (Porth- cawl) seconded the resolution for the adoption of the report, and this was carried. A letter was read from Col. Herbert Lewis expressing the thanks of the military authori- ties and of his committee of the St. John Ambu- lance Association* for the use of the Rest at Porthcawl as a St. John auxiliary hospital. The building was one of the finest and best- equipped hospitals in the Western Command. The Chairman said the subscribers had done a, patriotic thing in lending the Porthcawl Rest as a hospital for the wounded, and they would rejoice to know how much it was appreciated by the troops. (Applause). Mr. Samuel Fisher; J.P., Cardiff, suggested: that in view of the increased cost of mainten- ance it might be advisable to circularise the Trade Unions and Friendly Societies and others asking them to increase their contributions. Mr. Arthur Williams (secretary) said that in several cases workmen's committees and also firms had doubled their subscriptions. A vote of thanks to Sir W. J. Thomas for acting as president dtiring the past year, and of congratulation to him and Lady Thomas on their recent marriage, was carried, on the mo- tion of Mr. G. H. Elkington, seconded by Mr. D. Lewis. 1
PORTHCAWL. Council's Proposal Negatived.—The Local Government Board has intimated that it cannot consent to the proposed hiring of a field of 10 acres for the purpose of growing vegetables and holding demonstrations, with the aid of a gar- dener. As previously mentioned, there are about 200 allotment-holders in the Porthcawl Allotments Association. War Cookery Demonstrations.-In pursuance of its previous enlightened policy on the whole questio*. of food during the war, a strong com- mittee of ladies has been appointed, with Mrs. Alexander, wife of Dr. J. D. Alexander, medical officer of health, and Mrs. Parr and Miss Olwen Davies, hon. secretaries, for the purpose of fur- thering food economy in the homes. Shops have been taken for the purpose of demonstrations in the cookery of staple tood substitutes. These will be sold to people attending the demonstra- tions6 Officer's Death in Action.—News has -been re- ceived of the death in action of Captain C. A. S. Morris (Befordshire Regiment), only son of Mr. C. E. Morris, C.E., Newton, Porthcawl. Edu- cated at Wellington College and Cambridge University, he joined the Army at the outset of the war, and was wounded at Neuve Chapelle. Subsequently he served with the Irish Fusiliers at Salonika, where he was again wounded. For some months past he had been serving with the Bedfordshire Regiment on the Western front. His colonel writes thus to Captain Morris's mother:—"Your son met his death in the most courageous and gallant manner possible. He had reached the objective, and then his com- pany was held up by a machine-gun. Withoqt a moment's hesitation, he called on his men to rush it, and leading the charge fell. I rea- lised that in him I had one of the bravest of men, a charming companion, and a very gallant gentleman, of wnom Wales, and you of all, his mother, must ever be proud." i
TONDU AND ABERKENFIG
TONDU AND ABERKENFIG. Not a War Dance.—One night last week, Sgt. John Neal raided a dance at Tondu Schoolroom in quest of fit men for His Majesty's Forces. The sergeant took 30 names of persons, who were ordered to report themselves at the Re- cruiting Office. Garden Allotments.-Mr. Charles Yeo, County Council expert, paid a visit to the various gar- dens in the district last week. Always ready to give advice on any question affecting his work, Mr. Yeo met several of the allotment- holders, and gave some friendly advice and help. leaving inspected the gardens in the two parishes, he spoke very highly on the progress that is being made and the good work done. Lecture by Mr. J. Hugh Edwards, M.P.—A lecture, in aid of the funds of the Red Cross was delivered by the Member for Mid-Gla- morgan on Friday evening last, at the Methodist Chapel, kindly lent for the occa- sion, the subject being The War and After." The chairman was Mr. G. E. Llewelyn (Bryn- garw), supported by Mr. W. J. Hutchinson (Tondu). The nursing staff and^the wounded soldiers from Coytrahen Hospital were present.
LLANTWIT MAJOR X I
LLANTWIT MAJOR. X I Presentation.-On the occasion of her depar- ture to take up the matronship of a iiospital,, District Nurse Roberts, who has made a nnst of friends in the Vale, was presented with a travelling clock and cheque for tl3. The pre- sident (Colonel J. Gask,l?-' making the pre- ,? ,),in making the pr-- sentation, spoke of their regret at parting with Nurse Roberts, and wished her success in her new sphere of work. Nurse Roberts suitably replied, and thanked all for the kindness she had received at Llantwit.—Mrs. E, T. Lloyd, West House, then entertained the committee to tea, and although the function was the severing of a tie that had bound nurse and members in a happy union, a very pleasant evening was spent in the Hayes Room, kindly lent by Mr. Fred Price.—Nurse Roberts has also been pre- sented "by the local Red Cross Detachment with an attache case and cheque. Miss Nicholl made the presentation, and Mrs. W. E. O. Williams presided. Death and Funeral.—We regret to record the death, on Thursday last week, of Miss May George, ^eldest daughter of Mr. Henry George (foreman mason on The Ham Estate), and of Mrs. George, at the early age of 22 years, after a long illness, which was borne with great for- titude. The funeral, which was very largely attended by relatives and friends, took place at the Parish Churchyard on Monday. The Rev. R. David (Vicar) officiated. The deceased was a faithful member of the Church G.F.S. and choir, and both bodies attended the funeral in large numbers, the choir singing her favourite hymns. The 'h* f mourners were: Mr. and Mrs. George (parehts); Pte. A. George (Welsh Regiment); Mr. H. George (R.N. Reserve), Master George, and the three younger sisters of the deceased; Mrs. Wm. Hopkin (grand- mother); Mr. D. Hopkin, Swan Hotel (uncle); Misses Hopkin (nieces); Mrs. C. Thomas, Mr. M. Rees, and Pte. Ivor Hopkin (cousins). There were a large, number of floral tributes, including wreaths from the parents and rela- tives; Miss Nicholl, Woodford; the Girls' Friendly Society, the local Red Cross Detach- ment (of which she was a member) ,and many others.
IVALE NOTES I
VALE NOTES. I (By Pela-gius.") I Going back to last week's presentation meet- ing, that was a very happy touch of the Vicar's when he remarked: "I have heard a lot of your Anwyl Day. That, like many other things, has now gone to the limbo of the past. But if you have lost Llantwit Anwyl Day, I am pleased to fitid you have adopted an ( anwyl boy' in Capt. Hopkins." < This fittingly describes Capt. Hopkins, and the reason is not far to seek. The Chairman of the meeting to which we are referring (Mr. E. T. Lloyd, J.P.), said that Capt. Hopkins owed much to his noble mother; and he (the Captain), in responding, told us he was proud to stand before them on that memorable occa- sion in his life as the son of Ann Hopkins, a mother to whose sacrifices he owed all. There we saw the Dan that all Llantwit loves—devoid of "side." Mem bers of the audience, by the way, were very amused watching, the gentlemen on the latlorm making efforts to sing in their native language (CHen, wlad fy nhadau." It sounded uncommonly like a oonglommeratiori of old Llantwit English, diluted with Esperanto. a So we are to have a system of compulsory ra- tioning! Well, if it is necessary, we will take it cheerfully, but in the name of common-sense I let a start be made in racing stables, hunt stables, and kennels, where oats and oatmeal are consumed in large quantities by ■ animals whose sele use is to provide sport. The Order to keep less stock need not be extended to poul- try in the Vale. Foxes are taking care to de- plete the district of poultry of every descrip- tion. Even hens near hatching are carried away nightly. We have had pigeon shoots or- ganised to destroy these pests of the farmer. Is it not full time to organis ea battue of foxes, who, not content to kill poultry, have lately be- gun to turn their attention to lambs? Before we curtail the necessaries of life, let our leaders I have the good sep.se and courage to exterminate everything that destroys food, or that brings no real return for what it eats. 0 0 If it was not so ridiculous it would be comical to hear, as we heard a large farmer who has done well under a generous landlord, and has put what is called a large acreage down (that means growing hay, not corn), threaten to give his farm up rather than obey the Order to grow more corn. My dear sir, Britain will not I mourn the loss of such as you, neither will it suffer a grievous calamity if you should lead a recluse's life for the remainder of your days! Remember, the hour brings the men, and, as in past, so in the future. Man may propose, but God disposes, and if He disposes of those who retard the wheels of progress, man will in the end receive the benefits of His dispositions. < The unfortunate delay in getting'the motor tractors into the county have not helped the larger farmers. They, by their energy and ade- quate horse-power and farm implements, had done the greater part of the tillage for corn; so the tractors are mainly in use on the smaller farms, where the fields are of fewer acres. This is unfortunate, and does not give agriculturists a fair chance to gauge their possibilities. One farmer told us it is only the less pushing agri- culturists who have benefited by their introduc- tion.. The soldiers imported into the Vale are giving those who availed themselves of the offer of the Agricultural Committee every satisfaction.

I HEOLYCYW. I Mutical.-At a musical examination at the Park Hall, Cardiff, last week, Emily Daviea, Nantymoel, gainea 88 marks, which entitled her to be placed in the Honours Section; whilst Eleanor Morgan, Llewellyn Street, Ogmore Vale, was placed in the first class. Both are pupils of Madame Taylor, 2 Gower House, Heolycyw, Pencoed. 124 School Manager.—The county authority allots one school manager for Coychurch Higher and Coity parishes, whose Councils are permitted the nominations. When the two Parish Councils fail to agree upon the same person, the Educa- tion Committee makes the decision. This year it was in favour of Coity's choice, viz., Mr. Wm. Davies, who was last week officially informed of his appointment. Allotments.-With four or five exceptions, the 69 Heolycyw allotment-holders met Mr J. Simon Davies, surveyor to the Penybont R.D. Council, on Saturday evening last, paid their rents of 6d. per perch in advance, and signed agreements for their respective lots. The work is well ad- vanced, and the interest taken in it is most gratifying to all who have their country's in- terest at heart. Small Holdings.-Heolycyw people having now got allotments, the next task is to secure small holdings for the dozen or so applicants who have been waiting for them for years. Some will no doubt oppose the movement, but we know now that that opposition can be vanquished. We live in times when stupid selfishness cannot, and will not, be tolerated. The motto of the future must and will be "The good of the many." Potatoes.—Six and a half tons of seed potatoes, in excellent condition, were distributed among garden and allotment holders a fortnight ago. Almost, if not all, have been planted by now, and it is calculated that there is ground enough in the parish already prepared for another 7 or j 8 tons, which the officials of the local Gardens and Allotments Association are negotiating for, and hope to secure very shortly through the War Agricultural Committee. It is now prac- tically certain that Coychurch Higher, thanks to the new Association, will this year produce considerably more potatoes, and other vege- tables, than will suffice for its own require- ments. We shall, therefore, come into line with our neighbours of Brynna and Llanharan par- ishes, where allotments have been such an un- qualified success already. I ndustrial-The water in Spion Kop is rapidly lowering, and operations there will be resumed in a week or two. Coal to the thickness of 4ft. was struck in the new hard heading at Bryn- svyth on April 26th, but whether it was the mea- sure sought remains to be proved. Satisfac- tory developments are being made at Coedcae Colliery, where the balloting for a checkweigher resulted on Wednesday in last week practically unanimously in the election of Mr. Mervyn W. Payne. Good progress is being made at Tyny- tfaun under the management of Mr. Jenkins, late of Llansamlet, and negotiations were in progress for the sale of Trefach Colliery, where several valuable measures have been proved. There is no lack of employment in the district, ind every house in the place is occupied, while i goodly number is doubly occupied.
MOTOR CAR AND DELIVERY VAN
MOTOR CAR AND DELIVERY VAN. Lianharan-Pencoed Collision. His Honour Judge Bryn Roberts, sitting on Thursday last week at Bridgend County Court, was for some time occupied in the trial of a claim and counter-claim arising out of a colli- sion between a landaulette motor car and a bread delivery van that took place on October, 10th between-Llanharan and Pencoed. Plantiffs in the action were Clement James Richards & Co., of The Garage, Treforest, near Pontypridd, who claimed < £ 49 15s. damages from Messrs. W. H. John, of the Cafe Royal, Dunraven Place, Bridgend; whilst in the counter-claim Messrs. John sought to recover from the Treforest firm the sum of £ 15 12s., in respect of injury to their horse and damage to their delivery car. M^\ Hugh Jones (instructed by Mr. G. F. Forsdike, solicitor, Cardiff) was counsel for Richards'and Co., and Mr. St. John Francis Williams (in- structed by Messrs. Stoekwood and Williams, Bridgend) for Messrs. W. H. John.—Mr. Hugh Jones, in opening, set out the circumstances leading up to the collision, which, as already stated, occurred between Llanharan and Pen- coed. Plaintiff's car, for the Pontypridd Board of Guardians, had taken an ihmate to Bridgend Lunatic Asylum, and started the re- turn journey at 6.40. At 7.30 the car was on its proper side, and the driver was turning round the bend in the road, when he noticed coming towards him, and at a distance of twenty-five yards, defendant's delivery van, on the wrong side of the road. The driver of the motor car had two alternatives—to go on, which meant that he would have been thrown on to the bank, or to stop, in which case the van would have crushed into him. What he did do was to turn into the middle of the road, and to avoid a collision he went on his wrong side. Just as he was turning, the young man in charge of the van drove on to his proper side, with the result that the two came into collision. In turning his car to pass, the driver ran into the bank, and learned counsel submitted he had no other alternative; that he was absolved from liability, and also, was entitled to recover.—The driver, David/Morgan, a young soldier in khaki, said he had with him in the car Warrant Officer James and P.C. Cannings (Coed Ely). It was a landlaulette car. Witness sat in front, and the two passengers were inside. He carried two lamps-one on each side. They passed safely through Pencoed, and at the bena, already de- posed to, his speed was from ten to twelve miles an hour. Witness was in the centre of the road, "more to his proper side," when he saw the four-wheel bread van in front, on the wrong side of the road. At a distance of from 25 to 30 yards witness sounded his horn twice, the other driver seeming to take no notice, and coming on at the same speed. To avoid a collision witness went to the wrong side, the front of the car hitting the right shaft, and for- cing back the horse. After the collision, the bread van was across the road. He heard the driver say, "You have killed my horse."—His Honour: And I suppose you said, "And you have injured my car"?—Mr. Hugh Jones: Each put the blame upon the other.—Witness, in reply to questions, said he had been driving al- together two years—this particular landaulette for about nine months, and this was his first accident.—Mr. St. John Francis Williams You came round the corner on your wrong side, and that's why you didn't see what was in front of you? No, sir. Witness repeated that the car struck the horse on the right-hand side.—Mr. Francis Williams: I suggest you were on your wrong side, and struck the blow full in the chest.—Answering further questions, witness went on I had a conversation with the driver of the delivery van. I mentioned to hiinr about the wrong side, and asked him why he didn't get on the right side, and blow the horn. He did not say anything. I didn't say "It's an accident, and we are both in fautt; it is lucky we were not both killed." I said it was lucky I was not killed. My employers spoke to me about it the same day.—Mr. Francis Williams said there was no notice of claim until Janu- ary 25th.-P.C. Thomas George Cannings (Coed Ely), and warrant officer James, who were seated in the car behind the driver, gave cor- roborative evidence.—Plaintiff, Glement James Richards, gave evidence, in which he described the damage to the smashed-up car.—In reply to Mr. Francis Williams, witness admitted having at the outset received a letter from the other side alleging negligence on the part of his driver, and he did not reply, because it was "sent on to the insurance."—You never replied in any way to the application for payment in compen- sation? No, sir.—Frank Gaccon, motor engin- eer, who assessed the damages for the insurance company, said the sum claimed (. £ 49 15s.) was a reasonable sum.—This concluding the case, wit- nesses were called on the other side. The first of these was Henry Evans, who said he had been in defendant's employ as driver for the last 13 years. He alleged that on the occasion in ques- tion his speed was about five miles an hour; he was on his proper side, and he heard the horn sounded from the car. When first he saw the car, it was on the wrong side, and went to the centre of the road about 25 yards away. Still keeping to his right side, the car suddenly swerved.on the wrong side, towards him., As a result, he could not get out of the way, and in the collision the horse, which was heading straight for the front of the car, was struck in the breast. The car bounded against the bank, and the van was turned round.—Cross-exam- ined The driver of the car neversaid, "Why don't you keep on your proper side: He said, "It is lucky we were not both killed." It is an old horse. I have driven it for seven years, and have travelled this road for thirteen years. —William Morgan (Tynycaia Farm), who after the impact was soon on the spot, also gave evi- dence.—Mr. John (called) said he at once for- warded particulars of his claim, at which tim no claim had been made against him, and he had no notice, of any sort, until the insurance company, jlsked if he admitted liability. Mr. John added that the horse sustained such in- juries that it could not be again used for a month.—Mr. Bassett (veterinary surgeon) ",a?. evidence as to the injuries, after which the Judge, in summing up, found both parties were to blame, and gave judgment for defendants: on the claim, and for the plaintiffs on the counter- claim—costs to follow the event.
BRIDGEND DENTISTS SUICIDE
BRIDGEND DENTIST'S SUICIDE. Melancholy Case. .The circumstances of the death of Mr. Erhest John Ash, the well-known Bridgend dentist, were such as to cause the' most poignant grief to his family and friends, and painful surprise to the people who knew him well. Deceased was 61 years of age last birthday. He left on Tuesday morning last week for Wandsworth to attend his mother's funeral, and .was upset be- cause the body had left when he reached the house. In a fit of depression, he locked him- self in "the bath-room, and shot himself. Suicide whilst temporarily insane" was the verdict of the Wandsworth jury. On leaving Bridgend, Mr. Ash seemed to be in his usual health and spirits. Of a reserved disposition, he had many frientls, who esteemed him highly. He first came to Bridgend in 1903, and having been for some time with Mr. Williams (chemist) he started on his own account as a.^dentist in Dunraven Plate. His professional reputation stood high, though, like many more, he was hit by the war. Mr. Ash was a keen and successful angler, and was very popular among his fellow- members of the Ogmore Angling Association. He was an all-round "sport," and was particu- larly successful as a sewin fisherman, his catches including many fine specimens of that fi,,h. It a l wa, fish. It was always a pleasure to meet Mr. Ash "on the water." He knew the "hiding-places" of most of the big fish, and his fishing yarns were full of genuine wit. He was also a billiard player of some repute, and was generally re- garded as the "local champion." The news of his tragic death comes as a painful surprise to his angling friends, as only last week he was busily engaged in preparing his tackle for the "sewm season." Deceased lodged with Mr. T. Castle, Grove Road. He had three sons, two of whom are on active service in France, whilst the third is living with his sister in Australia.
