I t TrecasUe Notes s
I t TrecasUe Notes. s J By "Pendragon." Quite a sensation, was caused locally last week by a young lady who had walked from Llandovery in the torrential rain to make inquiries for a long lost cousin. I under- stand that the lady left that evening with- out bringing her visit to a successful issue. As a proof of the power of the "Express" locally, 1 am told that at a practice of the local Dramatic Society recently one of the meimberls urged upon the; others not to speak outside regarding their work, other- wise Pendragon" would surely put the mat- ter in the Express. Up jumped a bold farmer member, and siaid they did not care for the paper, and this was backed up by a local young lady. I would advise them not to speak so loud next time. P.c. D. H. Edwards, of Oolbren, and a native of our locality, was recently married to a young lady from Brecon. I am sure we all wish the young couple every happiness and prosperity. A very nasity accident occurred recently to Mr Alfred Price, Cyclists' Rest. Mr Price was cycling home from Ystradgyn 1 ais, and when coming down from Btwlcih to Cray the chain got loose, throwing the rider off the machine. Mr Price's narrow escape can be appreciated when it is said that had the ac- cident occurred 30 yards lower down he would have been thrown into tihe reservoir. I understand that Mr W. Davies, late conductor of the Cwmwysg Canaries, will conduct Trecastle Choir at the next Cray Eisteddfod.

B M DRIVER
B. & M. DRIVER. Death ot Mr W. Pulling. SAD COINCIDENCES. In our last isstue we recorded the death of Mrs. Wm. Pulling, Pontlottyn, aaid for.merly of Talyllyn. It is now our painful duty to also record the death, after a very brief ill- ness, of her husband, Mr Wm. Pulling. De- ceased, who was 40 years of age, was unable to attend the funeral of his wife owing to illness. He was a driver employed by the B. and M. Company, and the eldest son of Mr Charles Pulling, Brecon, for very many years M.R. driver, but now retired. It is a l^.thetio coincidence that the remains of both wife and husband were laid to rest in Llanfihangel churchyard within a few days of each other. The deepest sympathy is felt for the six little orphan children and bereaved family. At the funeral a service was con- ducted at the home at Pontlottyn ,by the Yicar. The remains) were brought to Taly- llyn on Saturday morning last, and were met by a large nmuiber of B. and M. em- ployes, neighbours and friends at the station, and widespread sympathy for the bereaved was manifested. The service in the church and at the graveside was conducted by the Rev. T. C. Richards (rector). Among the chief mourners were the following: -Willie Johnny a.nd Albert Pulling (sons); Mr Tom Pulling (brother); Miss Ethel Pulling (sis- ter) Mr and Mrs Lewis (sister and brother- in-law) Mr and Mrs Richardson (do.); Mrs Millard and Miss Joan Lloyd (sisters-in-law) Mr and Mrs P. Lloyd (brother and sister-in- law) Mr Sid Lloyd. Mr Jack Lloyd, and Mr Tom Lloyd Mr W. Morris, Old Trede- gar; Mr and Mrs E. Lewis (cousins). The father (Mr C. Pulling) and brother (Mr A. Pulling) were unable to be present through indisposition. Others present included Mr J. Thomas. driver, representing the loco. de- partment, Rlhymney; Mr W. R. Morgan, sta t ionm aster, Rhvmney, traffic. depart- ment and Mr John Davies, loco. foreman, Brecon. Wreaths were sent from children, father, mother, sisters and brothers, Sid and. Sarah, Mr and Mrs. Kedward, and the Bas- aaleg Bi-atidli of the X. Union of Railwaymen. At the service funeral! hymns were sung, Mr Snell presiding at the organ. We also regret to record the death of Mrs Lloyd. Trebythed, Llandefalle, which took place on Saturda.y at the home of her daugh- ter at, Tirphil, Mon. Mrs Lloyd was the step-mother of1 the late Mrs Wm. Pulling, Pontlottyn. The funeral took place at Llan- defalle on Tuesd ay, Avhen there was a large number of relatives and friends present.
BRECONS PROBLEM I
BRECON'S PROBLEM. I MORE TENANTS TO LEAVE. I Sir,—The old saying, Sorrows; never come singly," can aptly be applied to the lack of housing aoQommodation in Brecon at the present time. Ladt week eleven tenants in I Dina.s road, Llanfaes, wre given a month's notice. To make the problem still more acute, I now learn that four tenants in Or- chard street, Llanfaes, are already under no- tice. The property is owned by Christ Col- lege, and the notice—which was seryed on December 23rd—expires on March 29th. The DÍJnas road tenants are to leave on February 14th. Therefore, in a very short time, the Brecon Town Council will be faced with the problem of housing about 80 people. Will the present crisis move the Council at last to take some definite action in regard to the housing question, which is now undoubtedly assuming a very grave aspect P Or will it still pursue the even tenour of its ways and ignore the question, as it has tried to do in the past? Unless the Council take imme- diate action, the Local Government Board will step in, when the facts are brought to its notice, and compel the Council to tackle the question. It is interesting to note that the Board are going to hold an inquiry at Hay on this very question. It will pro- hatbly be Brecon's turn next. Vested in- terests musjt not be allowed to stand in the way of the proper housing of the people. RATEPAYER. Wo have in !hand an article on Brecon's Housing Problem by Mr Edgar L. Chappell, which will appear.next week.

Treloar, and W. E. Rumsey. A duet was nicely rendered by the Misses Treloar and Loam, and a recitation was given by Master Ronald Leonard. Mr G. L. Loam accom- panied. The rector, the Rev. H. P. Somer- set in proposing a vote of thanks to all who had in any way helped to make the tea and entertainment a success said the only regret he felt was that there were not more present to sha.re their enjoyment.

Motoring Notes There is a heap of satisfaction in being able to look back across twenty years' practical experience of motoring. Viewed through our 1913 pair of specs it's ,all so grand; and upon my word we rugged pioneers were splendid fellows. Undoubted- ly we have come along very well. It is not so long ago that the motoring world waa crying for a really practical nonskid. It had never had one until the Michelin Semelle made its appearance—and it has never asked for a better one since. The detachable rim again. There was at big leg-up for car refinement! And when! the Michelin Twin Tyre came along three or four years ago, it removed the heavy tour- ing car's main drawback for ever and ever, amen. More recently still we had another innova- tion in the shape of the Michelin Bolt Valve; and it has sient a whole family of troubles down the ash-shoot to the buried Past. Furthermore, as any experienced motorist knows, fitting and detaching security bcalts are not onily dimcult time-wasting opera- tions; they are dangerous operations as well. It is the easiest thing in the world even though the utmost care be taken to guard against it, to nip a tube under a bolt -a,nd an undetected nip means the certainty of a lot of expensive trouble the very next time the car goes out. Therefore, why be bothered with security; bolts? Why lay yoursielf open to the immin- ent possibility of trouble, and to the cer- tainty of tedious toil, by using the wretched things? There is absolutely no necessity to do so. Don't run away with the idea that the Michelin Bolt Valve is a half-baked experi- ment, for it is nothing of the kind. It has been tried and tested continuously for over three years, and has proved itself to be an ab- solutely efficient device. In fact, motorists should always use it, in preference to securitv bolts.
