PARISH OF ABERGWILI. JOHN FRANCIS & SON are instructed
Whilst the movement to enlist the services of the womenfolk on the land is for practical purposes a 'failure in Carmarthenshire, it, its interesting to record that farmers in the county are taking advantage of the facilities offered by the Government to release tem- porarily a number of soldiers in order' that they might assist with the harvest. The batch of applications sent in to the secre- taries of the County War Agricultural Committee show that there is a large de- mand for the services of these troops and in some farms soldiers have already arrived and are proving very useful in view of the shortage of agricultural labour. The house. to-house canva for the employment of women on the land, which has been con- ducted in Carmarthenshire, has proved dis- appointing. Whilst about 400 women and girls have volunteered for part-time service on farms, only about half a dozen registered themselves for whole-time work. It is full- timers that are really necessary, because in the case of part-timers who, in the majority of instances, aro prepared only to give a day or two. the difficulty arising is that their services are not available when the "farmer actually requires them. A further development in thio problem of the shortage of labour is a circular which war agricul- tural committees have just received from the Board of Agriculture stating that thp Secretary of State is of opinion that certain selected Austro-Hungarian and Turkish civilian prisoners of war may be usefully employed in districts which are not r robibi ted areas. Cranogwen, the well-known temperarico worker whose death is reported in ano^h.r column, scored a notable victory at Aber- ystwyth National Eisteddfod in 1'865 when she carried off the prize for the best song to "Y Fodrwy Briodasol (" The Wedding Ring") Her success placed several of the barde in an unpleasant position. Those who had participated in the competition had to stand a great deal of good-humoured criti- cism at the hands of their friends, with the result that they exhibited unwillingness to admit their defeat. Islwyn, however, was proud of his defeat, and made the following allusions to it at a lecture delivered by Craitogwen Rhaid addei mwy. hi bia'r gan. Hi nghurodd i yn ddigon glan; 4Gwir fod v testyn yn bwrpasol I ferch—" Y Fodrwy Briodasol." Peth chwithig' oedd mewn nierch mor I guro'i hawenvddol dad— [fad Mae hyn yn arwydd digon siwr Y bydd i'r Farddes guro'i gwr. Anxious to make herself useful in these dayt of labour scarcity, a certain lady reply- ing to an advertisement for a general ser- vant wrote to ask what the exact duties were, and received the following particulars in reply to her request:—"Dear Miss,'— Your letter of the 30th ult. to hand. Your washing will be sent to the laundry every week. I do not require my servant to do any work; my wife will bring you a cup of tea every morning before you get up; you oan get as many holidays as you want, and I will order a carriage to take you where you like. I trust you will let me know if you require a lady's maid,—Your liumble servant." Some farmers were "bad"' on Saturday. ) They hag realised that in coming to Car- 1 marthen they would be promptly button- holed on the stroot.s by pretty 'damsels soliciting their support to such a very good cause as the Carmarthenshire Infirmary, so with characteristic sagacity they rummaged among some odds and ends at home to find the penny flag which they had purchased on a by-gone day, and joyously sporting it on the lapel of their coats they came into the town fortified with" the impression "that they would not be called upon to spare a copper for an institution which is doing so much good. Great was their chagrin when they discovered that instead of a "flag day" it was a rose day." A local dealer (Mr. J. Evams, Yitrad House, Pencader) sent some pigs to Swansea recently. A few days later he received a letter to the effect that one of the pigs was appearing in a performance at the Empire. It is a common practice for pigs to be sent from the district for human food. but this is the first occasion, to our knowledge, for the little gentleman who pays the rent' to be sent for the amuse- ment of the public at Swansea. Last Sunday a pony-trap containing two passengers was being driven through Hen- Man when the nag suddenly mado a dash for Capt. Walters' coal woigh-bridge, and had' to. be coaxed away. On the return journey the act was repeated. Evidently the pony was not aware of the nature of the load. a

EMPIRE THEATRE. -"S,nowdonia" at the Empire has been a huge success, and those who have not yet visited the Empire this week should certainly do so at once. It is interesting to note that Mr. Towyn Thomas, the head of this successful caste, is a local man, being from Johnstown, and this fact adds interest to the programme. For next week a grand four part exclusive, entitled "A Son of Destiny," will be shown. This is a remarkable romance, in which love over- comes hate and ambition, and showing how the careers of those in high positions are some times unconsciously influenced bv the fortunes of thofie below them. This picture is one of -great beauty and presents the chief cinema stars. Other pictures, together with the Gaumant Graphic, will also be shown. RINK PICTUREDROME.-For Thursday, Fri- and Saturday of this week "The Master Thief" will bo filmed at the 'Drome. This is a Swedish biograph drama of absorbing interest, in which the scenery is superb. R is a picture which has earned a high reputa- tion all over the country. Patrons should not fail to see it. "A Soldier and a Man" tops the bill for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of next week. This is one of Ben Landeck's famous plays, and competent judges consider it as one of the best dramas he has ever written. It is full of entrancing interest from start to finish, and the actors in it are all renowned cinema stars. A pio- ture of such a high standard should result in bumper houses. The latest war films and other highly interesting pictures will also be shown. QUEEN ALEXANDRA'S ROSE DAY.-In spite- j of the many calls upon the pubile of the town and district on behalf of war charities ,and other philanthropic work. a noble re- eponse was made on Saturday to the appeal made on behalf of the funds of the Carmar- thenshire Infirmary, which has done so much in the past to relieve suffering in the town i and county, and' which has never been mora- [ appreciated than at the present time. The F arrangements were in the hands of the War Relief. Committee and the following ladies- were in charge of the respective districts, viz.Gu' I -sqiiare, the Mavoress and: Mrs. Crossman Market. Mrs. Blacdon Ric- hards; Priory-street, Mrs. E. R. Williams- Picton-terrace, Miss P. Richards; Station' Mrs. Backer and Miss Brigstocke. The sale- proved most successful, no less than fourteen thousand roses being disposed of and the takings amounted to the substantial sum of £83. DEPARTURE.—The many friends of Mr. Horace W. Bolton, the popular manager of the Empire Theatre at Carmarthen, will be sorry to hear of his pending departure from the town as he is joining His Majesty's Force-i. Mr. Bolton has at all times proved to be an ideal manager, and since his coming] to the town, the Empire lia,always been well patronised by the townspeople. Mr. Bolton has been successful in "bowing some of the best pictures in the I'nema world, and the turns have always beea ex- cellent, whilst interesting plavs have also been produced. The orchestra has also. been a further improvement since Mr.. Bolton s advent; moreover lie i'f<: at all times been most willing to give tLe of his halil for recruiting meetings and f r ooncerts in .aid of charitv. In leaving IK- wishes, on behalf of Messrs. Griffiths and Bolton, to tender their most sincere thanks for the generous and constant patronage of the Carmarthen theatre-goers, and trust that the same support will be accorded in the future to Messrs.
