TOWYN TOWN CLOCK.—The town clock has arrived and is being fixed in the tower above the Market-place. It will be a great acquisition. SIDE WALKS.—It appears that the Urban District Council are taking steps to ascertain the cost of the much-talked-of side walks. They would be a great acquisition, especially in the main thoroughfares. SWARMING BEES.—The streets were thronged with people who were gazing at butchers' and other shops on Monday last. It appears that the noise they made disturbed the equanimity of a hive of bees who swarmed into the streets and attacked the crowd in such a ferocious and unceremonious manner that they were cleared in a very short time. It is reported that some of the victims contemplate taking legal proceedings against the owner of the bees. It would, perhaps, not be out of place if the Urban District Council issued an order to muzzle the ferocious swarm. PILL ROAD.-Street sweepings and other refuse are taken to this road, the level of which has, fcr its whole length, been considerably raised. The sweepings, &c., are covered with better and cleaner material, so that a read is really being quickly made at practically no cost. Perhaps, if the papers and other things were burnt either early in the morning or late at night, it would be more agree able to fastidious travellers, but a little smoke is at times useful, as one brave man this week found out. After advancing just beyond the fire and the smoke he met a bull of ferocious appear- ance. The traveller promptly returned, followed by the animal which, however, gave up the chase as soon as the man pad entered the zone of smoke and fire. The burning of papers, etc., only takes place about once a week, but perhaps it would hi wise to discontinue the practice for a month or so. DEMONSTRATION.—Mr John Corbett of Yuys- ymaengwyn has intimated his readiness, in com- pliance with a requisition sent to him from Towyn, to formally open the Market Hall and to hand over the shelter on the Esplanade to the Urban District Council some day this month. A public meeting has been held- and a large committee appointed to arrange for a suitable demonstration on the important occasion. It is understood that a large procession will be organised to be headed by the Jubilee Brass Band and the volunteers. Mr Corbett's numerous tenants have intimated their anxiety to be present on horseback. The ladies and gentlemen cyclists have also intimated their intention of taking part in the demonstration decked with garlands. Tne matter is being taken up with great enthusiasm. Mr J. Maethlon James is chairman and Mr J. Lloyd Hughes, N.P. Bank, is secretary of the Committee. PETTY SESSIONS, FRIDAY, AUGUTST 5TI[.-Before W. R. M. Wynne, Humphrey Davies, J.

Threats. -Henry Hayler, joiner, Terrace-road, Aberdovey, summoned John Lloyd, labourer, Pen helig, for having on the 30th July threatened to assault him.—Complainant said that his son was a well-behaved lad until he went to Lloyd's when he took to abusing his (complainant's) mother, who was looking after the house, and kicking up rows. Lloyd came into the house and on the 30th threatened to break his nose, knock his eyes in, and do for him generally.—Defendant, on being asked if he had any question to ask, said the complain- ant's son was very deaf. His father abused him and he (defendant) regarding him as a brother, pro- tected him. He did not threaten complainant.— Edward Jones was called by complainant as a wit- ness who said he was not present on the 30th.— Complainant then called his mother who said that defendant abused her son most cruelly and asked him to come outside. The father had been most kind and indulgent to the son and the son had abused his father most cruelly. -Defendant said the father had turned his son out of the house for the past five weeks and he was taking the son's part and protecting him.—Witness denied that the son had been turned out of the house.

The defendant struck the horse, which was a three-year- old colt, and afterward struck him on the side of the head with the stock of the whip. As there were young women on the street and perambulators, he stuck to the horse and endured the assault. He had done nothing to defendant. He had the young women present as witnesses.—The Chairman said it was not necessary to call them as the d-fendant did not appear. They fined him £1 including costs. —Complainant then asked that the defendant should be bound over for twelve months to keep the peace, but the Bench said they could not bind over a man who was not present.
