[YSTALYFERA NOTES. On Saturday last an interesting foot- ball match was played on the field of the Ystalyfera County School, when the boys from the Maesydderwen County Schcol were the visitors. For the last five years the Maesydderwen ys have not been vary successful in their encounters with their Ystalyfera friends, but appearing on the ground as they did on Saturday, led by their captain, Gethin 1. Davies, one could see at once that the Ystaly- fetra lads would not get exactly their own way.—The Maeeydderwe-n boys kicked off, and although the result of the first half was Ystalvfera- 3 points (an excel- (ant goal from a mark by Percy Davies), and Ystradgynl&is nil, yet the latter team played with vigour, making several very excellent; dashes for the Ys- talyfera line. Ystalyfera, kicked off the seoond half, and immediately after the restart, the Ystradgynlais full-back field- ed well, passed the ball to Gethin. Davies, who made a beautiful dash, and then ijanded out to Ryla.nd Jones, who gave a fine kick ard found touch near the Ystalyfera. line. Practically the whole of the second half Ystalvfera played on the defensive, while stradizynJais attacked vigorously, and during the whole time the homesters failed to cross the half way line. The closing stages were really excit- ing, and the final score was Ystalvfera 3 points, Ystradgynlais 12 points i.iicur tries.) The return match will be played at Ystradgynlais on Saturday, Oe'cber 25, and although there was a good att. n- dance of spectators on Saturday, a larger crowd is expected at. Ystradgynlais. Readers will hear with regret of the aerious illness of Mr. J. W. Evan*. of Clyngwyn-road, Alltygrug, corresp m 'ent of the County School Governors. -NI r. Evans is stated to be in a critical condi- tion, and the sympathy of his many friends will go out to him and the family ia this trying time. We also learn with regret of the in- disposition of Mr. H. J. Powell, J.P., Wern. Mr. Powell has been unwell for some time, but has beeome worse during the past few days, and hss been orli-ered a rest from his public duties. We trust that both gentlemen will ha.ve a speedy racovery. Mr. A. Moore presided over a fairly good attendance at the weekly meeting of the P.S.E. Society held on Sunday- evening at the I.L.P. Institute. The speaker was Mr J. J. Marks, of Cwm- twrch, who gave an interesting and in- farming paper on "Eugenics. The speak- er devoted nearly an hour and a half of the evening to a thorough description of the various phases, natural and nurtural, of this highly important subject, and pointed out that the study of the science still being in its early stages it was im- possible for the eugenists to formulate any definite programme, but they did net so much advocate a reduction of popu- lation, as the production of a. higher and better type of man. A discussion followed in which several speakers took part. Several speakers were critical of the science and urged that eugeniats were proposing to deal with effects, Tather ttaan with causes. Mr. Marks briefly re- plied, and was heartily thank for lii3 paper. On Sunday evening next Mr. J. Davies will speak on "Some Patriotic Poets," which should be more tkan usual- ly interestizig at the present juncture. fr. D. T. Samuel, son of Mr. and Mrs. David Samuel, of the Wern, has recently completed his studies at the Bangor Nor- mal College, and has this week received intimation of his success in the certificate examination. Mr. Samuel is now residing at home, having commenced teaching at Crynant. Mr. Emlyn Hopkin, one of the teach- ere at the Godre'rgraig School, who, as we have previously announced, has been accepted as a 2nd lieutenant of the Royal Field Artillery, is hourly expecting to be called away to Dublin to join his regi- ment there. The Ystalvfera Town Band, under the conductorship of Mr. Evan Jno. Evans, paraded the streets of Ystalyfera- on Saturday evening, playing selections suit- able tq the time. Along the route a col- lection was made for the purpose of for- warding smoking requisites to the gall :nt boys at the front. There was a generous response to the effort, and about 30s. was raised, iihich waa immediately ap- plied to the purpose named. Patrons of the Ystalvfera amusement bouses have an opportunity this week «ef hearing an u-nnusually fine oompany of talented artistes. We refer to the visit to the Playhouse and Coliseum of Mr. Cfejcar Mills aj>d his company of N onen- tities," one of the best known concert parties in the kingdom. A more refined aed clever entertainment it would he quite impossible to find, and residents in this neighbourhood who appreciate ex- cellent singing, dainty dancing, and genuine humour should uot fail to hear this talented company of true artistes. Miss Louie Counsell. the 'sf:.q:r' of the party, is an inimitable artiste, and t h? fact that she comes from the London Coliseum gives some indication of J a- naiure of hm- brMliant efforts. She. j* un- doubtedly one of the finest comedy ^nf-r- tainera on the music hall Aaee. Mr. Os- car Mills haft earned a wide patfifci on ?9 p, perfect, humairt rn '-s this week it ore than maintained that J potetlon. He k,p », th? audience :n continuous roar. Oth-ra who in I the programme, and wh"^ efforts «ra j greatly appreciated Fceicr ll' cs Tl.i-aice X_r~v.r (contralto), Mr. Archie Scott (light comedian), and Mr. Martyn Herbert (character impressionist), together with Mr. Frank Box at the piano. There is an entire change of programme this week- end. The company appear at the Coli- seum on Friday evening, and at both the Playhouse and Coliseum on Saturday. The Guild of the Red Dragon had an auspicous start on Friday evening, the inaugural meeting being addressed by Dr. T. H. Parry-Williams, M.A., of Aberystwyth, one of the most brilliant of the younger llenorion of W ales. There was a good attendance, and the close attention paid to the lecturer's exhaustive, and at times highly technical descriptfon of the new poetry of Wales, was a tribute to the knowledge of the young people (it was an audience of young people) of Wales possess, and the interest they take in Welsh literature. Dr. Williams gave a very interesting account of t-lie characteristics of the "new bard," illustrating his t heme with a. number of very cliarming quo- tat ions from tie t works of Gwynn j Jones, W. J Gruffydd. Wy)nn Williams, "Tryfanwy" (tHe blind bard of Porth- madog). Sarnicol, and others. He also jjave exalmples of their terseness, suggest iveness, their democratic and nationalist ideals. These bards repre-I sent the flower of Welsh culture, but j do not neglect a single aspect of the life of Wales. The lecturer made every one realise tliat Welsh poetry 1 and Welsh literature generally, lias a brilliant present, and a still more brilliant future. Mr J. Walter Jones, B.A., in moving a vote of thanks to the lecturer, com- plained that Dr. Parry-Williams had neglected to give specimens of his own compositions, or any from the works of his cousin. Mr Williams-Parry, M.A., of Barry. The vote was seconded by Mr D. George Williams, and carried with acclamation. Mr G. Griffiths presided. Why is it that the great interest vtaken in poetry, by Ysalyfel"a- people does not find adequate expression, and why is there no effort matte to culti- vate tliis splendid trait of the Welsh character? There certainly ought to be a. poetry-circle in the place. There is no one better fitted to establish suoh a circle than Parish Councillor David Jones, Penywern road, possilbly the best-read worker in the place. This is a hint which we since-i-ely hope Mr Jones will act upon' at once. If he could only enlist the co-operation of the Rev. Ben Davies, tlie success of such a circle would be more than as- sured. It need not be a large circle, ard its headquarters should nort be at Pantte^ owijng to its geographical position. "Wie way local graduates are assist" ing with the Guild of the Red Dragon is most encouraging. Welsh graduates have been much abused in the past for their supposed lack of enthusiasm in tocal causes. We need only mem- tion Dr. Morris' (Treorky) diatnbe a few years ago to prove our contention. But quite half the syllabus of the Guild is taken up b; college-trained young people, a good proportion of them barng graduates. In addition we liave the active support of Mr J. Walter Jones, B.A., wiho is to give atn address entitled "A brief survey of Welsh literature," ailso, Mr Hy. Roes, B.A., whose address on "%VeWl Lyrics" is being eagerly looked forward to. Whilst the motto of the members of Jerusalem Chapel is "long live the new pastor," their attachment to the latc, iwistor ia a very warm one. No one is more welcome in his old home than the Rev. J. Ivor Jenkins, who occupied his old pulpit on Sunday. Everyone was delighted to see him, and it was a pleasure to witness the eagerness of the children to speak to and shake Itands with their laite minister. Special services were held at Zoa.r Chapel on Sunday and Monday, even- i ng, the preacher being the Rev. W. T. Francis, pastor of Oalfaria Chapel, Llanelly. Tfyo re-opening services of Guraos Chapel will commence this Saturdav evemng, when the pastor, Rev. Jdm Thomas, -ig occupy the pulpit. Ser- vices will be held every evening during the oomamg week, when the ministers of the district will be the preachers. The new edifice is a. great improvement on the old, and a splendid witness to the courage amd the faith of the members as wEll aa to the skill of the contract- or, Mr J. R. Williams. The officers of the H. Co. (Brecknock Ba^alion (Territorial Reserve Force have now been appointed. As stated in our last issue Mr Cecil F. Gilbert- san, J.P., Abercrave, will assume the captaincy, the other ofifcers being Mr D. J. Williams, Wern House, and Mr Edgar Morgan, Pontardawe, the old Swansea forward, and Welsh Interna- tional. Both appointments cannot fail to be popular, and should go far to assure the efficiency of the new com- pany. Lieutenant D. J. Willi-atms served for eight years in the Old Volun- teer force, attaining the rank of Ser- geant. We know that he has longed for service, and it was the realisation of bad eve-sight which prevented him enlisfcng in the new regular Army. True patriotism and readiness for ser- vice when, the need arises is a trait in the fajiiily, and in proof thereof we need only to mention that Mr "Teddy" Williams served as a Yeoman in the Smith African War. The best wishes of a'JI Ysta!yfera iter., and especially of tlie bovs who have been ie his charge sit school, will foftaw Lieutenant D. J. WilVanf. wherever he goes. It is prob- able that, the new Battalion will leave for N evtnd before the end of this month. A well-fitteadeci recruiting meeting ■v-as held at the Pantteg Sehoola on cdnesd av evening. Mr D. J. lViJ- Worn House, presiding. Ad- were delivered h" the Rev. R. G. J rimer,. Mr G. Ci-iflt,)A (C. C. 1f1.1!,) TT 1Y'V,:1;4' "\of.. --U-S. I.0 oJ the war he was a pronounced pro-Ger- man, but having since read the evi- dence of Pnissian duplicity he realised that the war was inevitable. The speaker also denounced the war philoso- phy of Germa,n professors. At the close a number of names were received for the Territorial Reserve Force. Mr I W. H. Woodliffe announced that the chairman would be of the officers of the local company. Mr W. H. Woodliffe stated that more recruits had been received from Ynysmeudwy and Godre'rgraig than from any other two districts in the Valley. Twenty to t wenty-fi ve vears i,go Gurnos boasted a very large number of miilitia men. Nearly every family on the Gurnos had a member who was with the colours some time of the year. The day is approaching when Gurnos will be equally well-represented atgain in our military- forces. A highly enjaya-ble recital and musical service took place- on Sunday evening at Wern Chapel, Ir. T. R. Samuel taking charge of the proceedings, and selections were given by Miss M. J. Francis (Llaethferch), Miss A. B. Clee, and Master Philip Davies, Godre'rgraig. Master Philip Davies opened with the solo "Seed time and harvest," and then Miss Francis gave "Women and War." Miss Clee followed with the solo "But the Lord is mindful of hie own." Miss I' Francis gave the well known selection, "Iesu," after which Master Davies ren- dered the solo "Dim "nd Iesu." Miss Francis contributed the recital "Silence in the Amen corner," Mi is Clee after- wards sang "Nazareth," HI owed by Mas- ter Davies, who rendered "The Gift." Miss Francis concluded the programme by reciting "The Women of Mumbles Head." During the evening the children under the leadership of Mr. T. Hutch- ings, also gave selections. At the coru- elusion the artistes and the organist (Mr. W. D. Clee, A.R.C.O.), were heartily thanked far their services on the motion of Mr. Wm. Jones, seconded bv Mr. ,Dd. Price. The oollection was in aid of the Swansea Hospital funds. Mrs. Ann Eva.ns, of 74 Wertn mad, "Iidow of the late Mr John Evans, of Ystalvfera, passed away after a long illness on Monday evening. Decea-^1. who was 71 years of age, was an Ys- talvfera native, a.nd was well known in tihe She had been a widow for about four years.

I IYSTRADGYNLAIS I NOTESI
I I YSTRADGYNLAIS I NOTES. One of the most surprising features of the recruiting meeting held at the New Cinema aast week was Mr Tom Williams' confession that the audience would nOt be able to sing "Rhyfelgyroh Gwyr Harleoh." Councillor Peter 1 Wright had asked that this well-known j battle-song be sung, and Mr Wright was evidently disappointed when told I it couldn't be. More recruiting meetings aire to be held in the district, the County mem- ber arranging one for Abercrave, and another for the Gurnos. These are to be held on the 13th and 15th respec- tively. Mr G. H. Strick, J.P., will preside at the latter, and it is ex- pected that Mr Wra. Brace, M.P., will be one of the speakers at both meet- ings. A further batch of 27 recruits was sent to Brecon on Monday, a number of them being for the mew regular Army, ond the remainder for the Brecknock Battalion of Territorials. Dr. J. Owen, of Cwmllynfell, giving ) evidence at the last Police Court, was asked by one of the magistrates if he was able to diagnose a case of drunkenness. The popular medico re- plied: Well, I have lived at Cwmtwrch for a number of years!" Mr Alfred Webb, dentist, who is with the Territorials in Pembroke- shire, visited Ystradgynlais for the> T?eek-end. Mr Webb's enthusiasm has not abated any since his departure, but still bubbles over as ever. Mr Owen Jeffreys having removed from Gough Buildings to Station road, the care of Sardis Chapel and Vestry has now devolved upon. Mr Joseph Jones. Pelican street. During last week the Non-Political. Club was a gloomy place, all the cheer, in the shape of "Jeff" having gone to Aberdare on a visit to his brother. But this week the Club is its cheery self again, the poet, singer, wag, and philosopher, having returned. The pulpit at Sardis Chapel will be occupied on Sunday next by the Rev. W. D. Roderick, of Rhiwfawr. Mr Ben Williams, Gilwen House. Cwm- twrch. was the preacher at the English Congregational Chapel. The annual meeting of the Free Church Council was held at Yorath Chapel, Cwmgiedd, on Tuesday". The following were elected ofifcers for the ensuing year: President, Rev. J. Emlvn Jones; vice-president. Mr W. E. Jones, PendlOs; treasurer, Mr Wm. Davies, Brecon road; secretary, Mr T WilUams, Lomlon House. The two latter were re-elected. The considera- tion of the application for membership from Calfaria Baptist Chapel was de- ferred until the next meeting. An inter-denominat.ionm prayer-meeting was held after the formal proceedings closed. A fellowship meeting was also arranged in connection with the next monthly meeting, when Mr Howell Phillips will introduce a- d'i'cus^ion on "Temperencc and Purity. Congmtulations to Mr Liew. Morgan, secretary of the local I.L.P., on being presented with a son and heir. It is pleasing to note th&t both mother and child are doing well. We regret to chronicle the death of Mr Elias Evans, Brynygroes cottages, cm Sunday evening. Mr Evans was a native of Aberdare, but had resided at Ystradgynlais for a number of years. He was a quiet, unobstrusive man. but highly esteemed by everybody. The interment took place on Thursday, a.t which there was a large gathering. The bereaved widow and son have the sincere sympathy of the whole neigh- bourhood. An accident Which, unfortunately, had a fatal result occurred at Ystrad- fawr colliery on Tuesday afternoon. It appears that Mr James Hope, Pelican street, 25 years of age, who was em- ployed as a haulier at the colliery, was brin,ging his horse out of the pit at the close of the shift, when a fall took place burying both horse and man. The inquest was held on Thursday morning, a report of which may be found in ahother column. The inter- 'n0M:. -ta-kes plare o-r, Saturdav. De- cease d was married only in May, and the young widow has the very sincere sympathy; of everyone in her sad be- reavement. The annual Sunday School treat was held at Pen Pisgali Vestry, Palleg, on Saturday. The genial ladies of Palleg attended to the inner-wants of old and young, and made everyone welcome. The tables having been cleared, a com- petitive concert was held, Mr Richard Watkin, Cwmgiedd, presiding. The adjudicators were: Music. Mr Hywel 0. Jones; literature, Mr Dd. Griffiths, Tyhwnt. The following were the awairds made:—Children's solo, Miss Alexander. Cwmgiedd; Miss Morgan, Gelli; cliikiren's recitation, Miss Annie Jones. Cwmgiedd singing a hymn- tune (Aberystwyth). Mr Evan Evans, Cwmgiedd Mrs. Morgan, Gelli; an- swering questions. Mr Leyslion H. Griffiths: champion solo (confined to Palleg). Mrs. Morgan, Gelli. What versatile men they breed at I Cwmgiedd! Mr Hywel Jones is not only a. muacaJ adjudicator, but also a horticulturalist of note, and there is no one in the Swansea Vailley better versed in the literature of Welsh Methodism. And yet lie narrowlv missed being elected a. deacon at Yorath Chapl Which reminds me. The recentlv edected ive elders of the above chapel were admitted meniibers of the Monthlv meeting on Thursday at Jerusalem Chapel, Ystalvfera Their replies to j the questions put them were regarded 1 as eminently satisfactory. I MOTOR SERVICE FOR ABER- I CR.,AVE-YSTALYFERA. I As wiN be seen m our advertising columns, a regular week-end motor service will be inaugurated this Fridav between Abercrave and Ystalvfera, by Mr W. J. Jones, of the Gurnos Motor Garage. The inadequacy of transit facilities to the upper parts of the Valley has long been a complaint of the travelling public, aind the above service will therefore, no doubt, be bailed with sa.tkfa
——— ——— CORRESPONDENCE. THE DOCTRINE OF NON- RESISTANCE. A LESSON IN LOGIC. To the Editor. Sir,— You had a rather interesting leader in your issue last week, based on an article appearing in the "Labour Leader" by Dr. A. Salter. of Bermond- sey. Dr. Salter is a supporter of the doctrine of Non-Resistance. You rightly say that his conclusion as a member of the gn, iiav of Friends, a.nd a follower of Christ, was that he has no right to engage in war or to en- courage olher people to go to war, but you refer to the Doctor's recent law ) suit with the Lordo.il Insurance Com- mittee as an instaju-e of how sometimes force is required to obtain justice.

brynamman NOTES. LOCAL DISTRESS FFND. We rejoice that the present crisis has not found the local choral and or- chestral societies indifferent to their obligation. A strong committee, con- sisting of two members from each society has been formed to organise a grand concert in aid of the Distress Fund, the concent to take place in about six weeks' time. The secretarial duties have been en- trusted to Mr D. J. Davies, Goleu- fryn, with a committee as follows:— For the Brynamman Choral Society: Mr Edward Evans, conductor; and Mr T. Morris Walters- For the Philharmonic Society: Mr. Wm. Williams, Park street, and Mr D. J. Davi, Goleufryn. For the Orchestral Society: Mr D. W. Lewis and Mr W. R. Williams, Oak Villa. For the Morgan's Orchestral Society, Mr Tom Morgan, conductor, and Mr E. J. Morgan, together with others nominated from the children's choir. There are also four outside members, two from Upper Brynamman. viz. Ald. W. J. Williams, and County Councillor GwiJym Vaughan, with Mr Griff. Mor- gan, school-master, and Mr W Thomas, Bungalow, to represent the lower por- tion. The various societies are throwing all their resources into the work, and a first class entertainmeiifc may be an- ticipated. The special work on which each of the societies was engaged, has been thrown over for the time, in the united effort to secure a substantial contribution to the Distress Fund. Now that united action has been found workable, the present committee should not disbanded. There are plenty of deserving institutions in the locality in want of support, and a united effort like the present, organ- ised once a year would set them on t l l,e, i i- fe(,t ir-I fell their feet independent of external sup- port. It is to be hoped that the com- mittee on the conclusion of its present task, .will consider the suggestion. Nothing would satisfy public opinion and claim financial and moral support for the societies more than a move in this direction. WEDDING I At the Llandilo Registry Office last week a smart. wedding was solemnised, the contracting parties being Mr Jonah Jones. Glasnant. Garnant, and Miss Sarah Millieeut Jones, daughter of Mr Daniel Jones, Llandilo road. ■ I LOCAL WINNER I Mr D. J.

PONTARDAWE YOUTHS COSTLY JOY RIDE
PONTARDAWE YOUTHS' COSTLY JOY RIDE. The story of a. menv Pontardawe "JOY H.id,j was told on Wednesdav at the Neath County Court, when Wm. John Davies, greengrocer and fish salesman, of Gwauncaegurwen. sued four Pontardawe young men, David Jones, Giraldus Davies, Elyn Lewis, and Geo. Griffiths for special a.1Id general damages resulting from the smashing of a governess car and in- jury to a poaiy. Mr Trevor Hunter (instructed bv Mr J. E. Edmunds, Llandilo) appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr Morgan Davies represented the defendants. According to the counsel plaintiff on W hit-Tuesday left his pony to be shod, with instructions to the smith to have it sent to the Victoria. Inn. When, later in the day, plaintiff called at the inn he found the pony in the stable, hut no trap. Subsequently p!a.i?n? found that defendant shad gone for 'a "j*ov ride" to Morriston and Swan- sea. In the course of this adventure the governess car was smashed and the pony rendered lame. The defend- ants had taken the pony and oar with. out permission, and it was with diffi- culty that the plaintiff traced them. Judgment. was given for £14, in ad- dition to the k2 paid into Court.
