ABERAYRON. BOARD OF GUARDIANS.-—-A correspondent has favoured us with a full report of the proceedings of the last meeting of this board, as well as those of the Highway Board, held subsequently to it. We do not publish reports that have appeared a week previously in one of our local contemporaries. We see nothing in the present case to lead us to depart from this role.Ei). W HE the controversy on the decline of Metho- dism in Wales is proceeding between Mr Owen Owens, of Oowestry, and Dean Owen, of St. Asaph, in the Times, it is interesting to find Mr J. M. Howell so out-spoken in a Society" on Thursday night, February 1st. Mr Howell told the "frawdoliaeth" that he had been cou rting the con- gregation iu their chapel on S inday mornings for some time, anl thi' on the Sunday before Christ- mas there were 81 present, of whom 20 were children the Sunday after 91, of whom 21 were children ;and the following 104, of whom 29 were children. When it is remembered that the "Taber- nacle" was built to accommodate about 1000 people, and that on special occasions as many as 1,500 have been iuside its wa 1j—tho force of Mr Howells remarks will be seen. It would give De; n Owen& Mr Owen Owens a good idea what value to put on statistics if it could be ascertained how mary hundreds arc entered in the official list against this chapel. It was noticed that Mr H )well had his diary in hand again last Sunday, and, no doubt, we will soon get farther revelations. If in every Methodist chapel in Wales we bad another Mr Howells, it would soon settle the problem which the two Owens seem as far as ever of solving. READING Room.-The annual meeting of the members of the Aberayron Public Reading Room was held on Friday evening, the 6th inst, when there was a large number present. The minutes of the last meeting having been read and signed, the treasurer read his quarterly report, which was as follows — Balance from last quarter, f7 5s lOd amount of subscriptions for the quarter £4 7s 9d last sale of papers, £017s 4d; total receipts, E12 10s lid. The expenses amounted to jE6 18s Id., so that there is a balance in hand at present of £5 12s lOd. This was considered very satisfactory, as the quarter just expired was an expensive one, owing to the heavy bill fo- coal and oil. The following gentlemen were appointed officeri for the present year — President, Dr Daties vice-presidents, Mr Munro Hughes, and the Rev Morgan Evans, Llanddewi Aberarth. The I treasurer (Mr E. Lima Jones) and the secretary (Mr J. B. Davies) were re-appointed. The secretary consented to collect the following quarter's subscriptions, and a vote of thanks was accorded him for collecting than during the previous quarter. It was decided to take in the following additional pal ers, Black and White," Reynold's newspaper, and also the "Geninen." It was only at the last quarterly meeting that it was resolved to give up taking" Reynolds," but now there was a majority of one in favour of having it again. A vote of thanks was unanimously accorded to the donors of papers during the past year, viz., Mr Maddy (Times); Mr Gold (Alliance) and Capt. D. Jones, Sydney (late of Mydroilyn), who regularly sends the Argus," a paper published at Melbourne. The quarterly sale of papers realized the sum of £ 1 7s Id, being 10s more than the proceeds of the last sale. A vote of thanks to the treasurer and secretary for their work during the past ytar having been passed, the meeting ended. MARRIAGE OF THE RECTOR OF LLANDDEWI'S SON. -The marriage of the Rev E.
