The property is mostly owned by Lord Stanley of Alderley, who is beginning alterations at the Market. The wall is to be pulled down in front of the Market, and a new entrance made, imposing shops being planned. A new cafe is to be erected next door to these, and opposite new premises for the National Provincial Bank are to be built. This will greatly improve the main street. Plans of over 150 houses have been submitted for the comparatively new district near the Maeshyfryd Cemetery, where already great developments have taken place in this direction, the houses being immediately let. The population of the town is increasing rapidly, and it is probable that further railway and steamboat developments will bring a greater influx of people into the neigh- bourhood. CARDIGAN. Mr. Benjamin G. Williams, the father of Mr. Daniel W. Williams, the American Consul at Cardiff, probably holds a record in connection with Sunday school work. He was born at Henbant, in Lledrod parish, in Cardiganshire, and is now past his 84th year. He became a Sunday school pupil in early boyhood, while yet in his skirts, and has followed up the work for over 80 years. For more than 50 years this veteran held office as teacher, superintendent, or chorister, and he is now the last survivor of the Sardis school, organised about 1841. On Friday at the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth, Mr. David Jenkins (Mus. Bac.), the lecturer in music, received the handsome present of a gold watch chain and the full score of Wagner's Parsival" from the College Musical Society. The Society attained its majority on the occasion of the concert held in April (when the "Elijah "was per- formed with great success), and this was deemed an appropriate occasion to recognise the valuable services which Mr. Jenkins has given 'to the College. For 21 years he has conducted the Society's concerts, during which time he has per- formed 28 classical compositions-oratorios, can- tatas, and symphonies. Moreover, he has not con- fined his energies to that body only, but has also directed the orchestral performances in connection with the Dramatic Society, which contributed largely to the success of these gatherings. All these services have been bestowed gratuitously. CARNARVON. The Rev. Robert Williams, B.A., curate of Llan- dudno, was at Glyngarth Palace on Saturday collated to the vacant benefice of Llanbedrycennin Rectory, Carnarvon. The Board of Trade have recently confirmed the following order made by the Light Railway Com- missioners ;—North Wales Narrow-gauge Railways (Light Railway) Order, 1905, authorising the work- ing and maintenance of the Moel Tryfan under- taking of the North Wales Narrow-gauge Railways Company as a light railway and other matters. The Rev. T. E. Timothy, curate of the small parish of Llandrillo-yn-Rhos, near Colwyn Bay, has been medically advised to lake a six months' stay at a sanatorium in the New Forest. Last week-end the Vicar (the Rev. E. James Evans) suggested that the whole of the Whit-Sunday offerings should be presented to Mr. Timothy. The idea was taken up with such enthusiasm that the collections at the ordinary Sunday services and the children's service on the beach realised the handsome sum of j) 17. An illustration of the strained relations between the Nonconformists and Churchmen in North Wales as the result of the Education Act, is fur- nished by an incident which has occurred in Bangor. Mrs. Williams, of Glyngarth Palace, the wife of the Bishop of Bangor, had arranged a b izaar to be held at Bangor this week with the object of raising funds to meet the demands of the Carnarvonshire County Education Authority on the Church schools in the matter of repairs, and a local orchestra promised to assist. The Nonconformist members of the orchestra have, however, intimated to their con- ductor that they cannot assist in any bazaar the

37 YEARS' RUPTUREs CURED WITHOUT OPERATION AT THE AGE OF 70 YEARS. SMr. Miles Lonsdale, 53' Howsin Street, Burnley, Lanes., had suffered from a double scrotal rupture for 37 years, when he used the Rice Method. "■■years of double rupture I am now cured by the Rice Method. and suffering is no more.

object of which is to render assistance to Church of England schools. Some years ago the London and North Western Railway Company issued on Saturdays in the season guinea short-date tickets from Euston to Llandudno. This excursion became very popular, but the Company suspended the bookings on the ground that they could not cope with extensive excursion traffic on Saturdays. Responding to a strong representation by the Llandudno Railway Facilities Committee, the Chairman of which is Mr. R. Roberts, the Company agreed to issue the guinea tickets on Wednesdays, but these were not found to be so convenient, and the Railway Facilities Committee have continued to press for the restoration of Saturday bookings. As a con- cession, the Company have now arranged that these tickets shall be issued on Fridays from Euston instead of on Wednesdays. As Friday is a more convenient date than Wednesday for the commence- ment of a short holiday, an increase in the traffic from London may be expected. DENBIGH. The Denbighshire Imperial Yeomanry, encamped for their annual sixteen days' training at St. Asaph, were inspected by Colonel Mainwaring (Wrexham), commanding the 23rd Regimental District. The Colonel complimented them on their smartness and neatness, and later on expressed himself as highly satisfied with all he had seen at the camp. The day's proceedings were marred by an accident. Trooper T. Daniels's horse caught its foot in a rabbit-hole and fell heavily, its rider being under- neath. He was seriously bruised, but no bones were broken. • GLAMORGAN. Mr. Andrew Carnegie, who gave £ 8,000 towards the erection of a new public library at Barry, has sent an additional sum of £ 600 to cover the cost of the recent arbitration proceedings. The degree committee of the special board for biology and geology of the University of Cambridge are of opinion that the work submitted by Illtyd Buller Pole Evans, Selwyn College, a Cardiff youth, advanced student, is of distinction as a record of original research. On Friday afternoon Richard Evan Evans (2), son of Mr. William John Evans, of 8, Glebeland Cottages, Cadoxion, near Neath, was with other children playing near a disused limekiln, when he fell in. The little fellow was seriously injured, and Dr. Prell; of Aberdulais, was promptly called but death took pla 'e on Saturday morning. At the last meeting of the Barry District Council Councillor J. A. Manaton, J.P., the cnairman, after referring to the loss sustained by the town and by the Barry Railway Company in the recent death of Captain R. Davies, moved a vote of condolence with the bereaved family. Dr. O'Donnell and Councillor J. H. Jose having spoken in high terms of the deceased, the vote was carried in sympathetic silence. Nearly ten years aeo the Glamorgan County Coun, il adopted a resolution that "the joint police committee be asked to appoint a sub-committee to meet a committee of the county council to consider and report on the best means of providing suitable and adequate buildings for the use of both bodies, any buildings to be within the administrative county." Councillor T. H. Morris has now given notice to rescind this resolution. Mr. T. W. Berry, F.C.S., of Deansgate, Man- chester, just appointed director of education for the Rhondda, is at present assistant director of educa- iion of the city of Manchester, and prior to that held appointment as director of education and inspector of schools to the Wellington Urban Dis- trict Council. His experience has been varied and valuable, and includes 13 years' headmastership of a large urban school, conducting pupil teacher centre classes, superintending evening science, art, and technical work, and concurrently was editor of a scholastic journal, which he initiated and con- ducted for ten years, gaining thereby a valuable insight into the difficulties of managers and teachers. MERIONETH. At Barmouth, before Mr. W. J. Morris and a full bench of magistrates, H. F. Collicott, Birmingham, was summoned fur driving a motor-car at a rate dangerous- to the public. Mr. R. Guthrie Jones (Dolgelley) appeared for the police, and Mr. John Humphreys (Portmadoc) appeared for the de- fendant. Mr. Jones stated that a Mr. Kay, from his sitting-room, observed a motor-car coming along the road from Dolgelley to Barmouth at a furious rate. He immediately went down the road, knowing that his wife, who was an invalid, was being conveyed in a p-rambulator by his daughter. He found his dog lying dead on the road. Mrs. and Miss Kay were only successful in avoiding the car by getting as near to the hedge as possible. They had not the slightest warning of its approach. The defendant was fined £5 and costs. MONMOUTH. Mr. Philip Jones, a retired farmer, residing at Tycoch, Cwmbran, claims to be the oldest Sunday school worker in the world. He was born at Lisfaen, near Cardiff, 84 years ago, and since he was seven years of age has always been a regular attendant at Sunday school, and for the past 50 years has been a teacher, but owing to illness was recently compelled to relinquish all official duties. In 1880 Mr. Jones was one of the faithful band of workers responsible for founding an English Con- gregational Church at Llantarnam, and since the opening of the church has been its senior deacon. Mr. Jones, notwithstanding his advanced age, is most regular in his attendance at all religious ser- vices, both on Sunday and week-nights. I i,h PEMBROKE. "Your husband is not here to-day?" said a man to a woman at Haverfordwest market. No," said the old lady, "he has a bad attack of con- junction of the lungs and information of the liver." In all human probability the Sloop Inn, Sandy Haven, Pembrokeshire, is held on the longest lease ever granted to any house. When the lease was made many years ago scholarship did not count for much, and the man who drew up the document, using numerals to express 999 years, put down goo, then go, and lastly 9, thus making the lease 900,009 years. RADNOR. A Christian weekly has a paragraph stating that when Dr. Horton was at Llandrindod Wells for the Welsh Convention, he accidentally discovered that he possessed the powers of a water diviner. The discovery was made in course of a ramble with the Rev. P. Collier (Wesleyan) and others. Mr. Collier had a forked hazel stick with him, and made experi- ments to prove his own power. Water was found in the usual way. Dr. Horton was at first sceptical, but on taking possession of the stick he found that it was drawn down towards the water just as with Mr. Collier. The doctor was convinced, and said he learned the lesson not to always disbelieve what he cannot understand.
