KIDWELLY NOTES. Sickness of the influenza type is very pre- valent in the town and neighbourhood. Among those attacked is the Rev W. C. Jenkins, the revered pastor of Cape! Sul, who has, however sufficiently recovered to take outdoor exer- cise. The Rev D. Geler Owen, also, we are glad to hear, is making gradual progress to- wards recovery. The death occurred in Swansea early in last week, at the age of 42, of Mrs M. J. Woolgar, daughter of Mr and Mrs Dd. Davies, Peny- gaer, Kidwelly. Her mortal remains were brought by rail to Kidwelly on Saturday last, and conveyed direct to Capel 8\11 in the grave- yard attached to which the interment took 1 place. There was a large and representative attendance at the funeral, along the route of which general signs of mourning were dis- played. The service at the chapel was con- ducted by the Rev Mr Rees, pastor of the English Congregational Church, Swansea, who had officiated at deceased's residence prior to the cortege leaving Swansea. The Rev H. R. Jones, Siloam (B.) and the Rev E. J. Herbert, Morfa C.M., assisted at the last sad rites. The chief mourners were: Mr Geo. Woolgar (husband), Masters George and Victor Woolgar (sons), Mr and Mrs David Davies (parents), Mr and Mrs S. H. Evans, Kidwelly (brother-in-law and sister), Mr and Mrs David Lewis, Abertridwr (brother-in-law and sister), Mr T. Davies, Burry Port (bro- ther),, Mr and Mrs J. M. Davies, Abertridwr (brother and sister-in-law), Mr T. T. Evans, Masters Willie and Hubert Evans, Kidwelly (nephews), Mr Parker, Neath, and Mr T. Lewis, Trimsaran (uncles). Widespread sym- pathy is felt with the sorrowing relatives. Sunday last and Monday evening were ob- served by the Welsh Wesleyan Church of Bethesda as anniversary days, and although the weather conditions were very unfavour- able, the services proved thoroughly success- ful. The attendance at each was satisfactory the preaching was excellent, and the financial addition to the chapel funds very creditable to the members and their friends. The special preacher was the Rev Llewelyn Mor- gan, of Mountain Ash. The weekly meeting of the Belgian Refugees Committee was held at the Town Hall on Monday evening the 8th inst., the Mayor, Aid. Thos. Reynolds in the chair. Routine busi- ness was transacted. A donation of 10s from Miss Bo water, The Priory, was reported, and on the proposition of Ald. Wilkins, seconded by Coun. H Wilkins, the thanks of the com- mittee was accorded the donor. The trea- surer's and collectorrl reports were satisfac- tory. "Single versus Married Life. "This was the subject of a -debate which took place at last week's meeting held in the Parish Room of the C.E.M.S. The case for the single state was ably espoused by fr Payne, who had as a doughty opponent Mr Harry Gravell. Among those who took part in the interesting discus- sion which followed were the Chairman Rov D. Ambrose Jones, vicar), Rev W. Evans (curate), Mr Clarke, Messrs N. Williams John Davies, and Dd. John Hughes. On a vote being taken it was found that a pre- ponderating opinion favoured the ma;?:el state. The pulpit at the Parish Church at the 10 a.m. (Welsh) and 6.30 p.m. (English) services on Sunday last was occupied by the Rev J. Thomas, curate of LIandebie, while the Vicar of Kidwelly was the special preacher at Llan- debie Church. On Wednesday the 3rd inst. Mr Ben Jones died at his residence near the Kidwelly Arms, Mynyddygarreg, aged 54 years. For the past six years, owing to illness, he, had been unable to follow his occupation as rolterman at the Tinplate Works. Many friends would best remember him as a brother of Mr John Jones, Cilffriw, for sometime -roll-turner at the local works. Deceased had been for a number of years a member of the Philanthropic Benefit Society whose headquarters are at the Castle Inn. The Rev E. J. Herbert officiated at the funeral which took place on Monday last at Horeb C.M. Chapel, Mynyddygarreg. **• The Cinema continues to be well patronised. This week, after the installation of a new engine, the series of first class pictures in- cluding the well-known "Freda," were shown with admirable effect. •«* We regret to record the death which took place on Sunday last at her home in Lady st., of Mrs Hughes, mother of Mr T. Oldham Hughes, with whom she residad. Deceased had been a sufferer far some long time. The funeral took place on Wednesday. We hope to give full particulars next week.

Kidwelly Builders Bankruptcy
Kidwelly Builder's Bankruptcy. The Carmarthen Benkruptcy Court was held at Carmarthen on Tuesday before Mr Registrar Mr D. E. Stephens. Mr H. W. Thomas (Official Receiver) conducted the examination. William John and John Evans, lately carry- ing on business in partnership under the style of Evan and John, Garden Villa, Penydre, Kidwelly, came up for their public examina- tion. The statement, of affairs showed gross liabilities of JE533 118 Id and a deficiency of L25 lis 6d. Wm. John filed a petition on be- half of himself and his partner, John Evans. They started in partnership in December, 1912. They had no capital, but John borrowed t- 100 and Evans JE50, which was paid into the partnership. There was no formal deed of partnership, but the profits were to be divided equally. They built two houses on land leased for 99 years f,rom 29th September, 1913 ground rent R3 2s per annum. These houses were mortgaged for JE800, and the Official Receiver estimated a surplus of jE90 10s from same. They contracted to build two houses at Kidwelly for £825, but as they were unable to complete the same, the architect on the 30th November gave notice that he would take over the work. From that day they ceased to carry on business. They were paid t260 on account of the work done. They aJso entered into a. verbal agreement to build a house at Kidwelly for R275 10s, which had never been commenced. Mr W. Davies, solicitor, Llanelly appeared for the debtors. The examination waa closed.
WANTED, BUTrERMAKERS. British Butter is unquestionably better than foreign, yet the latter is often bought in preference. This is an injustice both to the British producer and the buyer It is an injury which could easily be avoided. The British housewife believes that butter presenting a rich uniform colour is the ideal. The foreign producer meets her wish, and all his butter has the golden coiour which sells. A perfectly safe means is provided whereby the British maker can impart to his butter just that golden colouring which will commend it to the eye, as decidedly as its quality will commend it to the palate. The remedy is the Silver Chum" butter colour, manufactured by Oldfield. Pattinson, and Co., of Manchester, the successful survivor of the severest tests at the principal shows, where it has gained First Class awards for 25 years. Equally satisfactory is the high praise it has won ia the numerous dairies where it is regulary used. These competent approvals are due to the absence of any unevenessor muddiness in the colouring, and to the fact that the use of Silver Churn does not affect the butter- milk. The butter itself is not injured in the process; it is improved. Its delicate creamy flavour is enhanced. It should be clearly understood that Silver Churn is a vegetable product entirely free from any aniline dye. (A guarantee by the makers to this effect will be given any user desiring it). It may be obtained from Chemists and dairy supply men in 6d., la., 2s., úø., 8J., and 14s. bottles. To secure satis- faction obtain the Silver Churn brand. Free trial samples from the manufacturers.—Advt.

The Churches. An excellent Concert was given at Rhydy. gorse on Friday of last week by the Salem (Johnstown) Juvenile Choir conductor, Mr Tom Davies, Magazine-row). There was a good attendance of the Belgian refugees. The Rev J. Dyfnalit Owen occupied the chair, and Mrs Owen ably presided at the piano. An en- joyable evening was spent, the choir and the soloists acquitting themselves in a most cre- ditable manner. The following was the pro- gramme gone throguh :-Chorus, The Choir; duett, Maggie and Lily Evans; eolo, Dolly Harper; solo, Trooper Gordon Rees; solo, Miss Ceridwen Davies; chorus, The Choir; solo, Mr Willie Davies; recitation, Miss Annie Jones; duett and chorus, Maggie and Lily Evans; solo, Mr Jack Thmoas solo "Mr Willie Davies; duett, Missies D. Harper and Lizzie Jones; solo, Mr Brinley Jones; duett, Messrs Tom Davies and Brinley Jones; solo, Trooper Gor- don Rees; chorus, The Coair the National Anthems, French, Welsh and English. On Monday evenng the Rev Arthur Hughes (pastor of Zion) delivered an address at the English Congregational Guild on "Mark Rutherford." The Rev D. J. Thomas pre- sided. Mr Hughes gave a brief sketch of the life oif his subject who was born in Bedford and brought up in a Calvinistic atmosphere. He was destined for the ministry, but his heterodoxy caused his expulsion from college. He was repelled by the remote absolute God of Calvinism, but converted to a belief in the intimate God of Wordsworth. With a jour- nalist named McKay he engaged in social work in Drury Lane. It his writings he showed that he was impressed by the awful and the horrible in life. The romantic tendency in literature is responsible for the novels in which the hero marries a girl and they all live happily ever after. That is how we should like things to be; but Mark Rutherford was a realist. He described life as lie found it- not as he would like it to be. He was a great admirer of Carlyle whom he once visited, and lie owed a great deal to Caleb Morris, a man whom Carmarthen has known, At Lammas st. Young Peoples Society on Tuesday evening, the Rev J. Dyfnalit Owen delivered an address on the story of Lludd and Llevelys in the Mabinogion. At the start he pointed out that there were three ways of look- ing at life. The first is the Realistic Method. This is the method adopted by modern novel- isu; and dramatists and consists in observing facts and things as they are and not knowing beyond them. The Idealist has a scorn of material and visible things and considers them unworthy of his great intellect. The Roman- tic School adopts a medium between these two. It observes and has communion with visible things, but recognises that there is a spiritual meaning behind them. The last cen- tury had shown in the Renaissance of Wonder a renewed interest in the Romantic School. The Mabinogion which were of the romantic style were not the creations of the singers— bards or troubadours. They were the crea- tions of popular imagination; and the singers merely shaped them. Everything which the masses of the Celtic people saw and felt be- came part of their lives. Lludd was a king of Britain and Llewelys king clf France. Three great plagues were sent on Britain. The first was the Coronites, a small invisible people, who were present everywhere and who could hear the lightest whisper. The second was a terrible noise which was heard on the first of May and which frightened people out of their senses. The third was an invisible enemy who, lived in the King's palace and stole all the food. Lludd went over to France to con- sult hie brother, and modern journalists might find the description of the embarkation and landing of the Army very useful. It was diffi- cult for the two kings to talk on account of the pre-senco of the Coronites; but they managed to talk through ahorn which had been woslied with wine and so expelled the demons. They arranged a. plan by which the Coronites were to be killed by means of insects ground up and dissolved in water. This was used at a conference to which Lludd invited them. The speaker left his hearers to guess who the Coronites were; but suggested that they existed in Carmarthen to-day. The noise was caused by the battle of the White and Rex Dragons. A pit and a. Cietfaen fitted with mead was prepared at Oxford. By a stratagem, the Dragons were got into the cistfaen and when they were overcome by the mead they were covered up in the pit. This was explained by the Brut as typifying the contest .between the Saxon and the Celt as set forth in the story of Merlin. The stealing of the food was found to be the work of a Black Magician and a means was found of putting him to sleep. The whole trend of such litera- ture was simply to consider the material visi- ble world as part of life, and to live in close communion with it.
— Obituary. MRS SUSAN~DAVIES. Mrs Susan Davies died at her residence in Bridge street, Carmarthen, on Saturday. The deceased who, had been in ill-health for a con- siderable time was 67 years of age. The funeral took place at Llangunnor Churchyard on Wednesday.

CARMARTHEN TOWN COUNCIL
.————— CARMARTHEN TOWN COUNCIL. M* John Lewis (Mayor) presided at a meet- ing of the Carmarthen Town Council held at the Guildhall on Tuesday. THE INCOME TAX ON "PROFITS." Mr Holmes asked what the amount of the tax was that they had to pay on the Water- works. He asked the question so that the public should know. The Clerk said that the amount was tll6 odd. Mr Holmes It is getting on for over a penny rate Mr Holmes: That is for profit on the water works. I don't know where the profit comes in. UNIVERSITY COLLEGE.^ The Clerk pointed out that they had to elect a governor on the niversity College of South Wales and Monmouthshire in the place of the late Professor Jones. 5Ir J. Morgan proposed, and Mr D. Samuel seconded that the Mayor be appointed. This was agreed to unanimously. ST. DAVID'S DAY CELEBRATIONS. A letter was read from the Lady Mayoress of Cardiff suggesting that collections be taken up 'on St. Davids Day to provide comforts for the Welsh troops. Amongs the means sug- gested were the sale of flags at Id, 3d, and 6d and the taking up of collections in churches, chapels and cinemas. It was decided to call the attention of the War Relief Committee to the matter. WOOL ROOM WANTED. A leter was read from Capt. Long Price who required the use of the Wool-room in the market for the purpose of a store room for the Yeomanry. It was decided to refer the matter to the market lessee. FLOODS AT JOHNSTOWN. Mr T. Williams called attention to the cul- vert in Johnstown on the Asylum road behind the Royal Oak. The culvert had got clogged with the result that the whole place was covered with mud. It was terrible to see the state in which the houses were. Mr Holmes called attention to the state of CoUege road. The Mayor also referred to a gutter through a field and which the County and Corporation men were supposed to keep clean jointly. Mr T. Williams thought that there ought to be a permanent man who^e duty it would be to keep the cluverts clean round about Maesy- prior, Alltycnap, Pentrehydd, Nantylnyla, etc. It was not the 'traffic but the floods which were destroying the roads. Mr John Lloyd agreed, but did not think that a permanent man would be required. It could be done by a man who gave a couple of days a week to it. It was decided to call the attention of that foreman to the matter. IN LIEU OF LEAVE. On the recommendation of the Watch Com- mittee it was decided to give an extra week's pay to the constables who had this year been deprived of their annual leave. REPORTS. There was no quarterly report from the Surveyor (Mr Finglah) who is ill. The Veterinary Inspector (Mr J. F. Rees) reported that .there had been HO disease in the Borough during the quarter.
By the Way
By the Way. It is a curious fact that the dearer bread gets, the more of it is used. People can't afford cake. «** Several Carmarthen people have been offered hospitality by friends in other parts of the Kingdom, because these friends have read that a German submarine was seen off Fish- guard The late Mr D. C. Davies, the well-known Carmarthen conductor, was not a brother of Mr D. Davies, the Emporium, as stated in the obituary notice last week. They were friends but not relatives. **# The Carmarthen Guardians on Saturday decided to go on with the Cottage Hemes whatever the cost. They could not make up their minds to face the expenditure of £ 1,000 last summer; but it seems probable that they will have to pay a good deal more now. It is intended to have the usual national celebration at Carmarthen on St. Davids Day; but on account of the present European crisis refreshments will not form a part of the pro- I gramme. This is a course which is being adopted by most societies at the present time. This (Friday) evening the Rev J. Dyfnallt Owen lectures to the Welsh National Sooiety of Liverpool on "Marchogion Arthur." «t* At a. meeting of the local branch of the Commercial Travellers Association held at the Ivy Bush Royal Hotel, Carmarthen, on Satur- day, the following resolution was passed unanimously: "That this meeting notes with great satisfaction the new gcale of allowances to the wives, widows and dependents of our soldiers and sailors rcommended by the Select Committee, and urges the Government to give immediate effect to the same."

Burry Port Sensation
Burry Port Sensation. AMERICAN WANTED ON MURDER CHARGE. An American, Barney McClung, was brought before the Llanelly justices on Wed- nesday. Supt. Samuel Jones said the man had given himself up at Burry Port, saying that he had absconded from America before completing a term of imprisonment for burglary. Supt. Jones said lie had received information subse- quently that prisoner was wanted in America on a charge of murder. He further stated that he had communicated with the Commis- sioner of Police in London, but nothing was known of the man there. The Commissioner of Police, however, agreed to get into touch with the American Consul, who would get into communication with the American authori- ties, and let him know the result. P.C. John Williams said that on the 8th inst. defendant approached him near Burry Port Railway Station, and said: I want to give myself up. I have escaped from prison in Indiana, having been sentenred to eight years' imprisonment for burglary. I did six years, and was then let out on parole for two years. When I was reporting myself one day a Jew asked me to post a letter for him. 1 did so, and received a reply from him. When I thought they might get to know that I was taking letters for him I came to this country. I left America on January 10th, and arrived at Liverpool on February 3rd. I want to get back to America so as to complete my time 'there. Then I can make a fresh start, Supt. Jones applied for a remand until Saturday. McClung: If up to that time you receive no reply, what then ? The Clerk: You will be further remanded. According to McClung lie came to this country on February 3rd with horses from New Orleans, and had signed himself as James Teele.
