FERRYSIDE CONCERT.—The sum of £ 10 was realised by the miscellaneous concert held at Ferryside N. School oil the 12th illst.. The amount has been divided amongst the different military forces of the county ST. IsHMAKL's PARISH COUNCIL.—A statutory meeting was held at Llansaint Council School on Thursday, the 17th inst. In the absence of the chairman of the Council at the opening of the meet- insr. Mr. Tahany presided. A resolution framed with the view of securing uniformity in the payment of rates and taxes on houses assessed at £8 and under was discussed at length. It is proposed that in future all such rates and taxes should be paid by the owners direct and in full. On the motion of Mr. D. Anthony, seconded by Mr. John Beynon. it was decided to place the resolution upon the agenda of the next meeting for further consideration. The Council authorised the immediate repair of the pathway leading from the Cliff-road into Holcwm Pale roadway. The attention of the roadway authorities was called to the bad condition of several roads within the parish, viz. One leading from Llan- saint to Tanlan. another from Llansaint to Lanlay (both Carmarthen rural district); a portion of the Portway, from Capel Sul to the borough boundary leading to Llansaint, and the St. Ishmael's road from the Kidwelly boundary to Arlais. Proposer, Mr. D. Anthony; seconder, Mr. John Beynon. Mr. Wm. Thomas moved that an appeal b(, sent to the District Council for the erection of the new pump which had been granted for Llansaint at the earliest possible date. Mr. Anthony seconded. Mr. W. E. Rees informed the Council that the pump was ready and would probably be fixed before the next meeting. It was unanimously decided to ask the authorities to make arrangements to hold one centre at Llan- saint for testing weights and measures. At present. Ferryside was the only centre in the parish for tho purpose, and it was very inconvenient for the people of Llansaint to have to convey all their measures, etc., so far. A hearty vote of thanks was given to Mr. H. E. Smart., Mountain View, Kidwelly. for his kindness in presenting the Parish Council through Mr. W. E. Rees with two excellent lamps for their use at Llarmaint.
LLANDOVERY LARCENY OF POtTLTRY.-At the Llandovery special sessions on Friday last, before Ald. T. Watkins, Gollen House, and Mr. T. Roberts, Crown Stores, a charge of larceny of two fowls, valued at 9s., was preferred by Deputy Chief Constable Evans against Morgan Morgan, a labourer residing at Bankydolig, Capel Isaac.—From the evidence ad- duced by Mrs. Griffiths. Brynwhith, Gwynfe, and her servant man named John Jones, it appeared that on the night of the 13th inst. they went out and noticed something wrong in the fowl house. The servant man proceeded there with a lamp, which, however, was struck out of his hand. De- fendant ran away, and Jones followed him, and brought him back to the yard, where he was searched, and found with a sack containing one dead fowl, and another almost dead. Defendant had, some three years previously, been a servant at Bryuwhith.— He was arrested by P.C. Thomas, Llanddausaint. and pleaded guilty. '—The magis- trates said they considered the case a most serious one, and fined him ;65.-Part of this amount was paid, and the defendant was allowed a month to pay the balance. FUNERAL.—The funeral of Mrs. Margavet Davies, wife of Mr. Evan Davies, of London, took place at Soar, Cilycwm, on Thursday in last iveeK. The body of the deceased lady arrived by the early trrni on that day, and was met by a large circle • 'da- tives and friends from Cilycwm parish, where she was a native of.

Twenty-five beautiful wreaths were place on the grave sent by relatives and friends, and included one from the scholars of the deceased's Sunday School Class at Jewin.

ENTERTAINMENT. — At the Assembly Rooms on Thursday evening of last week the candidates rof the Llandovery branch of tho Girls' Friendly Society performed a musical war masque, ('lItitied The floziotir (Ni-ritteii by the Honourable Mrs. Gelll, the proceeds being devoted to the Serbian Fund. The hall was crowded and the entertainment, was presided over by Mis.- Dilwyn Llewelyn, of Penllergaer. Mrs. Pryse-Rice. of Llwynybrain, in introducing Mis-, Dilwvn Llewelyn to tne assem- blage, explained that she was »the president of tHS Girls' Friendiv Society throughout the diocese of St. David's. Miss Dilwvn Llewelyn t-aid that it gave her much pleasure to attend the entertainment got up by the G.F.S. candidates for such a deserving cause as the Serbian Fund. She also wished to thank the candidates for their monetary aid to the Swansea. o,,i Alexandria Day. She assured the gathering that they at Swansea felt justly proud of the great work which Mrs. Edmondes-Owen, Mrs. Lewis, -\]I,s Campbell-Davys, and Miss Thomas had performed in connection with the Llandovery branch. Miss Lloyd-Harries opened the musical part of the programme wit-h a song. entitled Olt." which created much laughter. Miss Campbell-Davys, fol- lowed with the rendering of the song. "Morning which was rapturously applauded. A 1'PC']'H:t, ing sketch, entitled England want- them." w as next enacted by a Llangadock party, in which the characters were a? follow- Grann:e Morris, an aged widow. Miss Doroihy Davies; "Polly, her grandson's sweetheart. Miss Lizzie Evans; Mi-e Low. a talkative spinster." Miss Maud Harries. The sketch was all appropriate one, and was well sustained, Miss Davies in particular acting her part nu st commendably. Mis- Humphries then delighted the gathering with several Welsh selections on the harp. Miss Lloyd-Harries rendered two amusing sonars, entitled Mr. Green's Aeroplane," and the Du^ky Maid, which fairly convulsed the house wit.ii laughter. During the interval between the two scenes in the Empire's Honour," appreciative contributions were given by Mr. Dan Jenkins, Mi s Lloyd-Harries, and Miss Campbell-Davys. The "Empire's Honour" was koenlv looked forward to. This was a musical war masque for young people, dedicated as a tribute of heartfelt admiration of the hero natures of Belgium. The Empire's Honour presented vital issues in a most appealing manner even to those with a slenucr knowledge of the Euro- pean situation. Scene 1. represented the outbreak of the war in 1914. As the curtain was drawn aside, Britannia was seen upon her throne in perfect peace. She K startled by the noise of battle, and a Herald entered to report thar the Ilun had de- clared war on France and Russia, and was invading Belgium, white urging Britannia to disregard her obligations to protect- the latter. A silent figure, symbolizing The Empire's Honour." appeared be- side "• Britannia at the ifrst un l of danger, show- illg her indignation and anxiety, until Britannia" commanded the Herald to announce her refusal to the Hun. "Honour" then retired to rally the Daughter Queens, while representatives of Sootland, Wales and Ireland, introduced by national songs, appeared on the stage and joined Britannia. Let by "Honour." tho Dominions." singing the Snng of the Daughter-Queens," arrived one by one, each kneeling before Britannia," and offering the sym- bol of her gift to the Empire. This closes the first- scene, which proved i. illot inspiring one, the characters being perfectly attired for their respective representations. The second scene represented the year 1915. The" Herald" recounted to" Brit- tallllia." aIHI the siter the deeds of the Army and Navy. The various corps and industrial workers are summoned, and1 France, Italy, Russia, an,l Japan also appear on the stage and salute Britannia." The music here changed to a funeral ,e(i toafuzierat march, and Belgium and Servia. (veiled in blacki entered hand in hand bowed down by affliction. Britannia crowned each with laurels, and all joined in the Song of Belgium's Sorrow." Brit- tannia comforts them, and encourages the other Allies, while all reply to her in the f=c-ng God of the Nations Hear. whx'h was, rendered in a most effective manner. The Allies then offeredl their thanks to the warriors, workers, and healers, and finally Britannia addresses ti'.Vm. Empire's Honour then re-appeared bringing in Peace and Freedom." and the scene chsod with the hymn of Peace. "Britannia" (Miss Irene Griffith s) was tho centre of the whole action, and seated on her throne, proved a mo>t striking figure. She conducted her part in a. queenly, grave, and dignified manner, and spoke in measured tones. Miss Bessie Griffiths as the Empire's Honour impersonated the

Before joining the colours, Sergt. Williams was in the employ of Lloyd's Bank, Ltd., but for some I years before war broke out ho belonged to the-local Territorials, and during his first year of service had the distinction of winning the recruitV medal for shooting. We were also glad to see Private Ben Robert*, son of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Roberts, of the Xag's Head Hotel. Private Ben Roberts had be.'Jl out in South Africa for some years, and at the outbreak of the war joined the Transvaal Scottish Volunteers, who fought in German West Africa, and at the conclusion of hostilities there his regiment w-as demobilised. But, Private lien was not to finish there, so joined the South African -Scottish in order to take part in the Euroi>oan war. They are n)ow in camp at Borden, near London.—Llandilo will learn with regret that Trevor Stephens, of the King's Royal Rifles, ha« been slightly wounded in France. He is the son of Mre. Stephens.

ExTERTAlXMK\T.—Once more Llandilo people are contributing to the war funds. This time the pro- ceeds were towards providing comforts for the Welsh troops. We have to thank Mr. J. Williams, head- master, Council School, for a very successful variety entertainment. The lidies' clioir. which Mr. Wil- liams has been training at the Council Schorl, gave a very pleasing reridorimr of the pieces selected. Miss Bronwen Williams, of National Eisteddfod fame, and Mr. David Lewis (Llew Cib) were accorded their usual hearty reception, and sang in their usual good style. Tho Moonlight, Idyll," in which Miss Downing Williams and Miss May Davies danced to the music Sung by Miss Bronwon Williams, was charming. There was also a humorous sketch. "How's your Uncle? which provided much fun and amusement. The coon son-rrs sung bv Mi. Hannah Williams and Misi F. Downing Williams were much appreciated. The chair was taken by Ladv Dynevor, whose^hort speedi at the beginning of the concert was as usual well received. The pro- gramme in detail was as follows:—Chorus. See our Oars" (Stevenson).

AMMANFORD At the Ammanford minature rifle range on Satur- day afternoon, selected teams from the Ammanford and Llandebie platoons of the V.T.C. met each other in friendly competition. After a most inter- esting contest, in which several reputations wero made and unmade-, Llandebie gained the ascend- ancy, the aggregate scores being 1.127—1.062. The following are the individual score" :-Llandebie: H Noyes, 99; T. Lewis, 96; J. Whiting, 90; Rev. D. W. Thomas, 95; E. Whelan. 94; T. Williams, 95; D. L. Thomas. 96; F. Bright. 97; R. Ireland', 84; D. B. Davies, 99; Carrod, 90; and Ben Davies. 92. Ammanford: A. Preston, 89; T. J. Rees, 76; J. P. Davies, 91; T. R.ees, 98; G O. Williams. 96; W. D. John, 97; R. Dewsbury. 96; W. L. Smith. 79; -L Saward, 90; Rev. J. W. Jones, 70; H. A. Woodliffe, 82; and G H. Davies, 98. Subsequently the victors were erit-ortained by the vanquished at the Gwestfa Restaurant. Quartermaster-Sergeant W. E. Morgan, of Tv- croes, has the distinction of being the last, man to leaVe Suvla Bay during the withdrawal. He is seen iii the official photographs published in some of the illustrated papers busy superintending the dostruc- turn of stores left behind. It, has transpired that he volunteered to remain to set fire to the/e when all others 'ha" left. In a letter to Mr. J. O. Parry, sur- veyor, he says he was absolutely the last man to leave—a distinction which he can we!! be proud of. A special meeting of the Ammanford Urban Council was hold on Monday night to further con- sider the question of fixing meters at the Llvgad LI well wr reservoir. in which the Llandilo rural coun- cil is also interested. The Clerk renortod on the matter, stating that Mr. David Davies, chairman of the joint committee, to whom the matter had been referred, failed to see the urgency of the matter, and declined to call a special mooting, as requested by the Ammanford Council. The Clerk read the clause in the agreement touching the point, and Mr. Wm. Evans said there might be sufficient water in the reservoir now for their immediate require- ments, but they might have aplioation any day for water from outside authorities, and thererore thev considered they had not sufficient, wate. It was a. well known fact that Llandebie were taking moro water than Ammanford to-day, and they were quite satisfied with it. The time had come when meters should be fixed to the respective mains, as they- were in the dark as to the quantity used and the quantity that could be sold. At least it was only fair that tho Llandebie representative* should come to discuss the matter, and he moved that thev press for a meeting forthwith. Mr. Da id George sëenoed the motion, which was carried.
