He will occupy the pulpit on Sun- day morning ana evening, and again on Mon- day evening. On a prvious visit Mr Williams preached in the Castle grounds. At the pre- sent time he is a prominent figure as a leading chaplain to the Welsh forces. Kidwolly has done and is doing her share in supplying men for the forces, and on Monda-V next a. batch of sixteen young men, eniployetis of the Kidwelly Tinplate Co., will leave to jOÍJl the colours. The members of the Town Band. desirous of getting funds for the purpose ot giving the gallant fellows a little, porting gift, have decidd to parade the town on Saturday (to-morrow) evening, and will make a collec- tion en route. We hope a substantial sum will be realised towards this worthy object, and that a fitting send-off will be arranged for Mon day. The best of luck go with them.
