Owing to the withdrawal of Mr. J. T. Evans (Abernant), there will be no bye-election to fill the Llanwrtyd Wells vacancy on the Breconshire County Council. The returned candidate is the Rev. Rees Evans (Cwmhenog). At Brecon the Breconshire County Council held an adjourned meeting for the appointment of a County roads surveyor at a salary of about £ 200 per year, with offices provided by the Council, and with permission to undertake private work. Mr E. Vaughan Edmunds, of Caersws, surveyor to the Newtown and Llanidloes Rural District Council, was appointed. CARDIGAN. Mr. James Jones, of Penpombren, Aberystwyth, whose death is just announced, was the father of six Welsh clergymen. The Rev. James Jones, of Llandinam, and the Rev. R. Parker Jones, of Llan- idloes, are two of them. A severe gale, accompanied by thunder and lightning, was recently experienced at Aberystwyth and district. Penygraig Villa, Llanrhystyd, occu- pied by Mrs. Morgan, widow of the Rev. John Morgan (Rhiwbwys), was struck by lightning. Considerable damage was done to the building, but the occupants escaped uninjured. At a conference between Mr. C. S. Denniss, general manager of the Cambrian Railways, and a Committee of the Aberystwyth Town Council, Mr. Denniss mentioned that in the summer a train will be arranged to run from Aberystwyth to Lon- don in six hours. It is also hoped that an .equally good down train will be arranged. Gipsy Smith was to have opened a week's mission at Aberystwyth last week under the auspices of the Free Church Council, but having temporarily lost his voice he was unable to fulfil his engagement. His place was taken on the first three days by the Rev. John M'Neill, who addressed crowded congregations in the Pier Pavilion. CARNARVON. Mr. J. Tobias, solicitor, Portmadoc, has been appointed to succeed Mr. Daniel Williams as assistant receiver in bankruptcy for the Chester and North Wales district. At Bangor on Friday night, Albert Wright, 28, said to be a french polisher from Norfolk, took a drink out of what he thought was a bottle of whisky, but which proved to be nitric acid, with the result that it was found necessary to remove him to the Infirmary, where he still lies. Reports from Carnarvonshire reveal the immense amount of damage occasioned by the great storm of last week. Several Nonconformist chapels suffered severely from the effects of the high wind. In the Llanberis district three large chapels—those of Dmorwic, Sardis, and Cefnywaen—have suffered damage estimated at over £ 2,000, the roof in some mstances having been completely stripped and ceilings so shaken as to necessitate entire re- making. DENBIGH. Sir Watkin Williams Wynn, Bart., C.B., keeps up the old custom of his uncle of giving a guinea On St. David's Day to every boy in Westminster School who can boast of a Welsh pedigree. Last Saturday afternoon the remains of Mr. J. yt' M. Smith, borough engineer of Wrexham, were interred in the Wrexham Cemetery. There was a large attendance. Canon Fletcher, vicar of Wrex- ham, conducted the service.
