LAMPETER COLLEGE AND THE PROPOSED EDUCATIONAL CONFERENCE. To the Editor of the Aberystwyth Observer. Sir,-The proposed educational Conference has called forth a good deal of correspondence owing to the fact that it was suggested to embrace representa- tives from Lampeter without the inclusion of the other colleges of lesser importance in the Principality. such as Bala, &c. Now, sir, it appears to me. that those who raise this hubbub—including the Prin- cipal of Aberystwyth College, who is a Nonconfor- mist first and a Principal next-forget one fact which is of paramount importance. It would be most unfair to exclude Lampeter from the Conference, be- cause it is an undenominational College. It is true that the majority of its students are trained for the Church of England, but this is not absolutely so, and when a student enters these walls no test is applied to him-whether he belongs to the Church or Salva- tion Army. Can this be said of any of our sectarian colleges ? Certainly not. If a young man goes to Bala Calvinistic Methodist College he must be a Cal- vinist, and so on with the colleges belonging to all the other sects. I see no reason at all why Lampeter should be treated differently to the other three University Colleges of Wales; but if the Nonconfor- mist colleges are to be recognised 80 also should Ystrad Meurig, Brecon, and Llandovery schools, and other schoels of equal importance. Yours, &c., EDUCA TIONIST. SMALL POX. To the Editor of the Aberystwyth Observer. Sir,-The present serious outbreak of small-pox— according to a. most valuable pamphlet by Mrs C. Leigh Hunt Wallace, entitled "Physianthropy"- appears to be nature's effort to throw off the evil in the human system resulting from years of improper food and living. The accomplished authoress statis- tically proves that, during the last small.pox epi- demic of 1871-2, when nearly 50,000 persons died from small-pex alone, there was not one death over the average percentage for the nine previous years, but that ten per cent. less people died during the period, including the deaths from small-pox. With this fact before us how important it is for people to study those laws which regulate personal aad home sano tion, with purity of food, and for the authorities to exert their powers in a proper house sanitary inspec- tion.-Sir, yours faithfully, + NEMESIS.

When we saw this particular weight of gold given as the accumulation of all preceding years, we were at once struck with the remarkable approximation of the weight given to what had just come to our knowledge was the eutput of Cocoa in this Country by one firm (James Epps and Co.) for one ear only, the last twelve-month, it being 80,403,333 troy ounces, or 2,645 avoirdupois tons, and, on the moment, we could not withst and recalling to mind the old adace-" Worth its Weight in Gold."

APPROACHING MARRIAGE OF MISS WILLIAMS WYNN. The marriage of Miss Williams Wynn to her cousin, Mr Herbert Lloyd Watkin Williams Wylmfr,, of Celn St Asaph, heir presumptive to the baronetcy and the Wynnstay estates, to which we alluded last week, will take place in the last week of August, at Ruabon parish church. Mr Herbert William. Wynn is the son of the late Colonel Williams Wynø. Sir Watkin's only brother, and is four yeara older than his future bride, who was born in Deoember, 1864. The marriage will excite greater interest throughout a large part of North Wales than any other event of recent times, and there will be general rejoicing that Sir Watkiu's daughter is to find her future home in the house of her ancestors. The event will be celebrated by public demonstra- tions among Sir Watkin's tenants, friends, and neighbours, in Denbighshire, Montgomsryshire, aad Shropshire, as well as in Flintshire, where the CefD. estates lie and probably in places beyond the, confines of those counties. Sir Watkin's marriage to his cousin, thirty-two years ijgo, took place at SL James's Church, London, and there will be great satisfaction all round Wynnstay that on this occa- sion the ceremony is fixed for Ruabon, an arrange- men t characteristic of the present baronet and útdT Williams Wynn, who like to dwell among their ovrnt people.

DEATH OF THE REV J. SINNETT. We regret to have to announce the death of th e Rev J. Sinnett, R.D., rector of Penboyr, which sad event took place at the Rectory on Sunday morning. The deceased gentleman had attained a ripe old age. He was an honest, faithful, a.nd devoted follower of his Great Master, singularly straightforward, simple- minded, and kind-hearted. He had been for many years rector of Penboyr, the duties of which office he performed with such constant and unceasing care as to greatly strengthen the Church cause and to secure for himself the real friendship and respect of all his parishioners, irrespective of religious differences. It may be said of him that to all he was all politeness, all gentleness, and all kindness. His death will be deeply felt and mourned by a large circle of friends. LAMPETER.

Give plenty of moisture to newly-planted celery. If peas are sown at once autumn crops can be secured. Hoe between cauliflowers sufficiently forward, and plant out what you have in seed-bed. Keep a steady bottom-heat to cucumbers. Make up a bed for sowing a winter crop of spinach. Lose no opportunity of planting plenty of winter greens. The final crop of early York cabbage, lettuces, broad-beans, dwarf and runners, &c., may now be sown. Peaehes ripening should be kept as cool as possible. Netting should be placed over gooseberry and currant bushes to protect the fruit, and the sam6 of cherry-trees. Carnations and picotees can now be propagated by layering and piping. Chrysanthemums will require liquid manure and frequent sprinklings overhead. Syringe fuchsias once or twice a day.
