LAMPETER AND DISTRICT. Caxton Hall. OUR readers will be interested to know what is to become of Caxton Hall-the. > "LIan" headquarters for many years. We understand that the tender of Mr. D. Caxton Davies, of Cardiff, has been accepted by the liqui- rlatorsof the Welsh Church Press and Printing Co. The entire premises, in- cluding machinery, stock, etc., have been taken over by him as a going con- cern. Mr. Davies, who is well known as a former manager of the business and as a staunch churchman, contemplates great improvements, and hopes to make Caxton Hall of still greater service to the Church in Wales. G.F.S. The Archdeaconal Conference held at Lampeter was a great success. Miss Wilson, diocesan secretary for Chichester, gave us most invigorating addresses. The demobilising of our women war workers, urged the speaker, afforded us great opportunities of creating new life and enlisting new workers. Our local branch is very flourishing. This is due largely to Miss Thomas, Oswald, who until recently was our energetic branch secretary. She has had to resign under doctor's orders, and her place has been taken by Mrs. G. W. Wade. A full programme has been ar- ranged for the winter, and includes the acting of a Shakespearean play to be directed by Mrs. Hugh Walker. Memorial Service at the College. A most impressive memorial service for the thirty-one fallen students was held at the College Chapel on All Saints' Day. With the college staff and students there were many townspeople present, and the I chapel was full. The Bishop of St. David's preached on Hebrews xii. 1. Dr. Wade and Prof. Richards acted as the Bishop's chaplains. Professor Green conducted the service and read the list of the fallen, which included three priests. Mr. Ivor Davies, the col- lege organist, accompanied. The ser- vice opened with () fryniau Caer- salem," and closed with How bright those glorious spirits shine," and the twenty-third psalm was sung. Llanycrwys- A memorial tablet to the late General Sir James Hills-Johnes was unveiled at St. David's Church on November 5. The inscription runs To the glory of God and in memory of Lieut-General Sir James Hills-Johnes, V.C., G.C.B. LL.D. The lighting of this church was borne by Lady Hills-Johnes. Morgan Griffiths, vicar. John Harries and Ben- jamin Jones, churchwardens." The stone, we understand, was subscribed for by the parishioners, and the lighting of the church refers to the recent instal- lation of acetylene gas. The ceremony was performed by a niece of the "de- parted, Miss Evans, Lovesgrove, Aber- ystwyth. There was an overflowing con- gregation, and the Itev. Griffith Jones, Caio, in his sermon, speaking from per- sonal and intimate knowledge, paid tri- bute to the late general.

HARVEST FESTIVALS Mold (Flintshire). THE Vicar, the Rev. Evan Jones, M.A., will shortly be leaving for his new sphere of work—the parish of Llandrillo-yn-Rhos, near Colwyn Bay. He has spent alto- gether seventeen years of his life at Mold; five of these as curate and the remainder as Vicar. During his vicariate he has performed the prodigious task of restoring the grand old parish church, which for well-nigh five centuries has stood secure, a thing of beauty and the pride of Alyn- side. A huge eum of money, approaching £ 8,000, was collected, and the ancient edifice now stands firmly restored to its pristine perfection. Added to this there has been collected since the war over £ 1,000 for a memorial to the heroes from the parish who fell in the great struggle against Prussian militarism and materialism. It has been decided that this is to take the form of a new Lady Chapel at the east end of the north aisle now occupied by the organ. As this involves removing the present organ, built in 1856, the congregation has expressed its willing- ness to combine the two projects and the work will, it is hoped, soon be proceeded with. A more fitting memorial could scarcely be conceived of than qne in which the sacrifice of our loved ones is linked up with the one full, perfect and sufficient" sacrifice of the Saviour. We would forget the ghastliness of the struggle, but we can- not forget the heroic self-sacrifice. The Cross stands for all time to testify to the terrible consequences of human sin, equally repellent and equally difficult to realise. We thus humbly associate the nobly human with the gloriously Divine: Do this in remembrance of Me." The harvest festival services were held in the parish church, on Tuesday, the 14th, and were continued the following Sunday. The special preachers were the Rev. W. J. Rees curate of Pentrobin, near Hawarden, and the Joev. D. Stephens, of linockin, near Oswestry. The services were very well attended, whilst the musical rendering of the service bore marked signs that we are rapidly returning to pre-war or peace conditions. The offertories, amounting to < £ 17, will be devoted to the War Memorial Fund. At the Gwernymynydd Mission Church on Friday, October 11th, the preachers were, in English the Rev. J. E. Morgan, of Bistre, and the Rev. O. G. Pritchard, Nannerch, Welsh. The services at New Brighton were held on Tuesday, the 21st. Holy Communion at 8, Evensong at 7 p.m. Preacher the Rev. Ffoulkes Williams, Vicar of Cilcen. The offertories were for St. Lukes Hostel. St. Lawrence (Pembrokeshire). THE harvest thanksgiving service was held at St. Lawrence Church on the 16th alt. Eloquent sermons were preached in English and Welsh to a large congrega- tion by the Rev. W. H. A. Walters, Vicar of Trefgarne, and the Rev. T. Thomas, Vicar of Abergwili. The ancient church was prettily decorated by willing helpers. The offertory, which was substantial, and which included gifts in money and in kind, was given to the County Hospital, Haverfordwest. Wiston. THE harvest thanksgiving service was held in Wiston Parish Church on Thurs- day evening last. There was a very crowded congregation, and the service was very bright and hearty. The preacher was the Rev. C. 0. R. Wormald, M.A., Vicar of Slebech, who preached an able and appropriate sermon. The church had been tastefully decorated. The anthem "A Bounteous Harvest" (Simper), was well rendered by the choir. The collection for the. county infirmary amounted to over 47.

There were large congregations again on Sunday, and the collections were for the S.P.G.. Glya Ceiriog. THE harvest festival was held on October 22, and befitted the occasion. We had a celebration at 8.3G, English service in the afternoon at 2.30, and a Welsh service in the evening. The church was full in I the afternoon, but in the evening it was packed. The singing was at its best, par- ticularly the anthems, Praise ye the Lord" (Simper) and un Dewch i'r Dyfroedd." It is therefore seemly to thank Mr. Hackett (choirmaster), Mr. Robert Edwards (organist), and also the choir generally. We are also much obliged to the ladies who decorated the church, and to those who sent fruit and flowers. The eloquent and useful sermons of the Rev. G. R. Davies, Rector and Rural Dean of Corwen, have impresari us with a desire to hear him again. The collections, < £ 5 18s. 6d., will form the nucleus of a fund to provide a heating apparatus for the church. Dowlais. ■ PARISH CrrrarH.—'The festival was held on Sunday, October 26.
