ABERLLEFENNY. During past months the district is being denuded of people-several called up to the army and others leaving for districts where they can improve their circum- stances.

Call to Farmers
Call to Farmers. APPEAL TRIBUNAL STATEMENT. Cardiganshire Appeal tribunal met at Cardigan on Tuesday when, in the aoseiice of tne chairman, lhr. John Jones, Cwm cie, Air. i-i. M. Vaughan presided. Theie were also present the Rev. John Wil- liams, Messrs. D. C. Roberts, R. J. R. Loxdale, R. S. Rowland, Joseph Evans, E. Lima Jones, R. R. Nancarrow; Evan Evans, clerk; Major J. R. Williams, mili- tary representative; and Mr. J. H. Davies, representing the Board of Agri- culture. Major Williams asked for a further ad- journment of the case of B. T. Jones, Aber- bank Mills, Henllan.—The Tribunal agreed Mr D. Davies, Emlyn Factory, New- castle Emlyn, appealed against the deci- sion of the Llandyssul Tribunal which had dismissed the application of Samuel Jones. —Major Williams agreed not to call the man up before the 4th of December. Before dealing with the agricultural cases, Mr. J. H. Davies drew attention to the circular of the War Office whereby all men who were now employed in agriculture were allowed to remain on the farms until the 1st of January. The position, said Mr. Davies, was a serious one, and the Board of Agriculture and the War Office had come to the decision that all men under thirty years would have to be called up, and they asked that the appeals be deferred in order that farmers might make an arrangement between this and that time. He therefore suggested that ali agricultural cases be postponed till the end of December.—Major Williams said at the last Tribunal they heard the cases and gave the men time, the' military under- taking not to call them up until January. The Chairman said the Press would be doing a great service by making it known that all agriculturists were likely to be called up on the 1st of January, and it was incumbent upon farmers to do all they could to meet that expected shortage. Mr. W. J. Williams said the only diffi- culty was that the right of appeal would be done away with. Supposing the farmers did all they possibly could to provide sub- stitutes and failed? They would be de- prived of all their men Mr. D. C.

lip and Sotott the Coast [Selected]. OBSERVATIONS. One great cause of misery in the world is that men think they will be perfectly happy in a future that never comes to them. He is the only wise and happy man who so lives that he can strike a balance at the close of each day, owing nothing to the world and expecting nothing from it. It is not an uncommon thing for men to abuse the world in order to have the pleasure of hearing it defended. Nature with grand impartiality bestows noble presence ii-respective of wealth. Rich men have recognized this fact by putting their servants in livery, so that there may be no mistake as to the owners of wealth. It is a pleasant thought to a writer that his words are read in thousands of homes by young and old. That those same words may live when he has laid the pen aside is a pleasing hope, however vain. MY LITTLE GIRL. Her voice is like a silver bell, Her arms are soft and round, And when she runs her tiny feet Just barely touch the ground. My little girl climbs on my knee And puts her face to mine; She throws her arms around my neck, And mine her form entwine. She says I am a nice old man, And strokes my wrinkled face, But little thinks that in my life She fills so 'arge a place. The world outside may frown on me And call me rough and cold: My little girl shall be the judge; Yes, she the scales shall hold. Sometimes my little girl is ill, Then all is black as night; But soon as she is well again There comes returning light. We are in love, my girl and I— She says she ll marry me. To her I am the noblest man The world did ever see. If she should live to be my age, And have just such a pet, In love she will remember me; And I—shall I forget! The Coast. J.G. ——- M
