ABERYSTWYTH. CYCLING.—Mr T. J. Williams of the Aberystwyth Cycling Club was successful in winning the third prize in the Swansea Speedwell fifty-mile cycle race for the Sir J. T. D. Llewellyn M.P. Challenge Cup, held at Swansea on Saturday. Five prizes were offered in addition to the cup as first prize. THE EMPEROR'S CUP. -In the recent yacht race from Dover to Heligoland for the gold cup given by the Emperor of Germany in commemoration of her Majesty's eightieth birthday, the race wis won by the "Charmian" owned by Mr F. Buddie Atkinson, Creswell, Northumberland, brother-in- law of Mr Morgan Griffith Jones, Aberllolwyn. ASSESSMENT.—A meeting of the Assessment Com- mittee was held on Monday when there were present, Messrs G. F. Roberts, chairman, Chas. Davies, J. J. James, J. E. James, T. E. Salmon, Evan Lewis, Thos. Powell, and Jas. Jones. An appeal from Vaenor Lower was considered and a reduction of El 12s. Sd. was made. It was resolved to engage a valuer to value the properties of the Cam brian and M. and M. Railways in the union and the Clerk was instructed to write to various valuers ask ing their terms. It was agreed to call upon the overseers of Llangwyryfon and Rhostie to bring in new valuation liscs for those parishes, to include all ratable hereditaments. An appeal from the parish of Llangwyryfon was heard and a reduction of f20 was made. IN ALL THEIR GLORY.—On Saturday, the mem- bers of the temporary fire brigade, captained by Mr Rees Jones, borough surveyor, drove in full uniform on the engine through the principal streets of the town. This was intended to allay the fears of the timid by demonstrating that there was a splendid set of men capable of dealing with any emergency which may arise prior to the establi3hment of a permanent brigade. The authorities also thought that the sight would stimulate in young men of the town a desire to become members of the new corps. The members who were in uniform on this occasion were :—Mr Reps Jones (captain), Messrs James Evans, David Edwards, David Richards, D. H. Thomas, Evan Evans, David Jones, Ebenezer Williams, John Parry, aid David Davies. THE IMPROVEMENT COMPANY.—With regard to re-arringements of the Aberystwyth Improvement Company, of which there have been recent rumours, we have bpen informed that the only alteration is in the sale of some of the debentures of the Com- pany to the British Mutoscope Company who have now a representation upon the directorate and are now engaged with Mr Croydon Marks, who is chair- man of the Company, in further developments. The representative of the Mutoscope Company up- on the directorate of the Improvement Company is Mr Smedley. The other directors of the Mutos- cope Company are Mr Leatham Bright, Mr Dalziel, M.P., Mr McDonnel, Mr Hudson (Messrs Hudson and Kearns), Mr A. C. Pearsou (Pearson's- Weekly), and Mr Koopman, FOOTBALL.-At a meeting of the Combination Football League Management Committee, held at Liverpool last Saturday, an application was made by Mr T. H. Edwards for the admittance of the Aberystwyth Club into the Combination League. The application was unanimously granted. The other members of the League are Druids, Wrexham, Oswestry, Flint, Birkenhead, Newtown, Llandudno Swifts, Bangor, Tranmere Rovers, Chirk, and Rhyl. The first three matches in connection with the League will be playe'd by Aberystwyth at home, their opponents being Druids, Wrexham, and Chirk respectively. It is to be hoped that now the Aberystwyth Football Committee has taken this step, which is obviously an expensive one, that the football enthusiasts of the town and district will support the Club in the way it deserves to be sup- ported. AMBULANCE EXAMINATION.—The result of the examination of the members of the ambulance class has come to hand and shows that eight, candidates have passed out of four- teen whc sat. Eight sat for the first year certificate and four passed and six sat for the second year certificate and four passed. The examina- tion was held about six weeks after the lectures had ceased, with the result that interest flagged and the number of competitors was not near what it could easily have been. The successful candidates were :—First year, Mr John Banford, platform in- spector, Aberystwyth P.C. D. E. Phillips, Aber- ystwyth, Mr Alban Griffiths, Bookstall, Aberystwyth Mr D. Thomas, Llanon second year, P C. Evan Williams and P.C. Chas. Charman, Aberystwyth P.C. D. Thomis, Aberayron, and P.C. David Evans, Tre- garon. The examiner was Dr Hugh Jones, Dol- gelly, and the instructor Dr Bonsall, Aberystwyth. FOR WAIFS AND STRAYS.—The annual collection made in the streets of the town in aid of Dr Barnardo's homes for waifs and strays took place on Saturday.

Humphreys, Mrs E. H. James, Mrs Evans (Terrace), Mrs Mortimer Green, Miss Levi, Mrs T. E. Williams, Mrs T. F. Roberts, Mrs Colquhoun, Mrs William Griffith, Mrs Richard Jones (William-street), Miss Maria Doughton, assisted by Miss Penry, Misses Morcom, Misses Metcalfe, Miss Burgess, and others. The secretary of the movement is Miss Getta Jones, to whom great praise is due for the trouble she takes annually in making the collection a substantial one. The money was kindly counted by the staff of the National Provincial Bank.

AN INTOLERABLE NUISANCE.—As soon as any- body takes a child on to the Terrace, the whole of the donkey keepers rush at the person and there is a scramble for the possible customer. Is this sort of thing to continue, and if not, will another inspector be necessary ? Who is to see to these things ? SHILOH CHAPEL—After having been thoroughly renovated, Shiloh Chapel will be formally reopened next Sunday. The ministers for the day will be the Revs r. E. Roberts, pastor, and the Rev M. Morris, Cwmaman, Aberdare. The chapel is now fitted throughout with electric light. Heating apparatus has also been provided. FORMAL OPENING OF COUNTY SCHOOL.—This ceremony, which was to have been performed in July, has been postponed to October in the hope that Lord Rendel would at that time be able to take part in the function. He has written to say that he would not be able to free his engagements to come to Aberystwyth in July. CYCLING.—Yesterday morning Mr Wheatley, Music Warehouse, Terrace-road, was riding a cycle through Chalybeate-street when he was run into by a lad riding a cycle from the direction of Rail- way-terrace. Neither rider was going at a fast pace. Both were thrown off without injury, but the front wheel cf the boy's machine was seriously buckled.

RHEIDOLJUVENILE CHOIR.—This choir, which intends competing at the National Eistedd- fod at Cardiff, gave a rehearsal at the Royal Pier Pavilion on Sunday evening. Admission was by silver collection.

Lloyd James, aged 44, deputy town clerk of Darwen, which took place on Wednesday, June 21st, after a short but painful illness. Mr James was a native of Llanbadarn Fawr, Aber- stwyth, and was the son of David and Winifred James, a respected family of that place. He com- menced his educational career in Pen parkau school and afterwards went through a course with Mr Ed. Jones, Jasper House Grammar School, finishing at the University College, Aberystwyth. He served seven years at the offices of Mr H. Hughes, solici- tor, Aberystwyth, where his services were greatly appreciated. He was invited to undertake the duties of assistant town clerk at Barrow-in-Furness and was soon promoted to deputy. His stay at Barrow extended about twelve years, whence he came to Darwen and served the town faithfully for many years. Mr James married Sarah, the young- est daughter of the late Mr Richard Parry, Laura House, Aberystwyth. Mr James was almost suc- cessful in many applications for situations of im- portance, such &s the town clerkship of Llandudno, the vestry clerkship at St. Saviour's. London, and West Ham, London. He ranked high among the Freemasons. Mr James's mother died about two months ago and undoubtedly the loss of his mother, to whom he was very much attached, weighed heavily upon his mind. The funeral took place on Friday, June 23rd. i CANTATA PERFORMANCE.—The Ystwyth Lodge Choir, under the conductorship of Mr John Benjamin, A.C., gave a performance in full character of the cantata The Haymakers at the Royal Pier Pavilion on Wednesday night, before a crowded house.

Jones Dairy Maid (mezzo-soprano), Miss Lizzie Owen Farmer (baritone), Mr G. Haydn Jones William (tenor), Mr E. Tomley Evans John (bass), Mr J. Arthur Jenkins; trio, Mary, Anna, Dairy Maid chorus of men's voices quartet and chorus, Mary, Anna, William, John quintet, Mary, Anna, Farmer, William, John semi chorus of mowers, Messrs E. Tomley Evans, E. J. Hughes, William Jenkins. E. Thomas Evans, Stanley Jones, and E. H. Davies semi-chorus of spreaders, Misses Lizzie Owen, Lizzie Jenkins, Ellen Pierce, Maggie Thomas, Polly Edwards, and Ellen Davies quartet, Misses Lizzie Jenkins and Polly Edwards, Messrs Lewis Thomas and E. H. Davies. The Choir performed in an exceptionally clever manner in almost all the choruses and Mr Benjamin is to be congratulated on the excellence of his training. The rendering of the choruses Arouse Ye," Sweet After Toil Cometh Rest," "Softly the Twilight Fades," and All Nature Now Rejoices," was keenly appreciated by the audience and an encore was insisted upon in the latter case. Miss May John, at the outset, sang" She Wandered Down the Mountain Side," in her inimitable style and she was encored. The orchestra consisted of Miss Cooke, Victoria House (first violin); Mr T. Levi (first violin) Miss Burgess, Queen's-voad (second violin) Miss Roff King, Victoria House (second violin); Mr Gwilym Thomas (clarionette) Miss Lizzie Jones (piano) Miss Nesta Hughes (harmonium). The arrangements were in the hands of a committee of whom Mr George Owen was chairman and Mr J. W. Jones hon. secretary. It is understood that a good sum has been realised. CHILDREN'S TREAT.—Councillor G. Croydon Marks, chairman of the Aberystwyth Improvement Company, gave the school children of the town a happy day on Wednesday, to which they had looked forward for a long time past. Mr Marks gave a treat to the school children in the Pavilion Christ- mas twelve months and intended repeating the in vitation last January, but circumstances inter- vened to prevent the treat coming off and had therefore to be postponed to Wednesday last when over 1,700 children responded to the in- vitation which was sent to the Board School children through Mr Peter Jones, to the National Schools at Aberystwyth and Penparke through Archdeacon Protheroe, and to the County School through Mr George Davis, chairman of the Governing Body. The scholars from the Board School marched from the school to the Cliff Rail- way under the direction of Mr Saer, Miss Nicklin, and other teachers the scholars of the National School under the direction of Mr Ainsleigh Jones, Miss Knight, and others of Penparke, under the direction of Mr Cox and the scholars of the Intsrmediate Schools left under the direction of Mr D. Samuel. Rain fell in the early afternoon, but in the afternoon the sky cleared, a fresh wind arose and dried the grass on the Cliff Gardens, where tea was served and a very pleasant time was spent. The children were taken up the hill by means of the Cliff Railway. Tea was served between three o'clock and five for the children and after that tor teachers and their friends. The tea and refresh- ments were under the charge of Mrs Croydon Marks, Mrs Swanson, Mrs Robert Doughton, Miss Vaughan Rees, Miss Rea, and other ladies who volunteered their services. Maypole and figure dances were indulged in by the children under the direction of Miss YVellings and Miss Eva Swanson. The children were prettily dressed for the occasion. The boys indulged in tugs of war, races, &c., the Board School team coming off triumphant in the tugs of war. Mr Ainsleigh Jones, Councillor R. Peake, and Mr Rufus Williams of the Lion Hotel, assisted in arranging the games. The A.I.C. Band was in attendance under the direction of Mr J. H. Rowe.

The eveilt was of great local interest. Smiling faces, waving of hands and caps greeted the christening party on allsides as they drove to and from church. The font was prettily decorated with Gloire de Dijon roses, moss and white clematis. Amongst the names (which were given out by Mr Lloyd Hughes) was the old Welsh one of Rhoriri." The young mother, Mrs Law, looked very sweet in a white costume with pale blue hat. Mrs Hughes, scarcely looking a grandmother," handed the infant to the vicar who very bountifully besprinkled him with the holy water.

As they missed the organ, the orchestral band attended divine service in the Town Hall to the great delight of the con- gregation. A STAG HUNT,—Although from time to time remains of ancient dfier are dug up from the Iraeth near here, considerable excitement was caused by the appearance on the Traeth on Thursday evening last of a live deer. It was evident that the animal had escaped from the grounds of Mr W. J3. Oakeley and efforts were made to secure him. He took refuge however in the water between the Cambrian Railway bridge and the embankment and after putting his would-be captors to their wits' end he crossed over the small embankment to Llynbach. Here a large number of spectators lined the bank while several others put off in a boat and eventually secured him. The deer was subsequently sent up to Mr Oakley's preserves. THUNDERSTORM AND ACCIDENT.—The oppressive heat of the past few days was followed on Wednes- day by heavy thunderstorms accompanied by perfect deluges of rain. On the outbreak of one ot these showers the workmen at the Moelygest Betts, etc., Quarry ran in haste to shelter, and in doing so oneof their number John Evan Jones of Britannia, slipped on the rough stones and fell headlong over a large mass of stones on to the gallery. In ad- dition to injury to his feet by the slip. the greater part of one side of the face and the nose are severely contused, the skull is believed to have been frac- tured, and one arm and leg injured. He was carried home on a stretcher and the quarry manager, Mr Thomas, sent the doctor and nurse to his aid and did everything possible to alleviate the poor fellow suffering.

The property was withdrawn at £350. Mr. Daniel Watkins acted as solicitor to the vendor. BUTTER FACTORY PROPOSAL.—It is feared that the proposal to budd a butter factory in the town. which atone time appeared to meet with favour all round and was likely to be carried out, is falling through. In fact, it is said that the movemeut is already dead. A meeting of the promoters was called for Friday to consider the situation, but owing to the small attendance nothing definite was done, the meeting being adjourned for a week. vVATERWORKS.—A committee meeting of the Town Council was held on Wednesday evening week for the purpose of considering the amended draft agreement proposed to he entered into between the Council and Mr Harford and the trustees of the Falcondale Estate for the sale of the site of springs at Capelli, from which it is intended obtaining an additional supply of water to the town.

CBITUARY.—The death took place last week o f Miss Sarah Jane Davies, daughter of Mr David Davies, Station-terrace, at the age of seventeen. Deceased, who had a long illness, was attended by Dr Griffiths. Miss Davies, although young, had made many friends who received the news of her death with great sorrow. Great sympathy is felt with the family. Up to the time of her illness she was engaged as pupil teacher at the St Pe'terwell Girls' School. She was remarkably successful in all her examinations, holding in the majority of them a high place. She was a member of the St Peter's Church Sunday School and of the Church choir.

A beautiful wreath was also re- ceived from the pupils of Peterwell School. CYCLE RACE.—On Monday, Harford-square was crowded with people who came to witness the start and conclusion of a cycle race between Mr James Bridgwater. Myrddai House, and Mr Evan Owen Thomas, Glasgow House. The race had been well advertised and people had come from all over the district. The course was from Harford-square to Llanybyther and back to the starting point, a dis- tance of twelve miles. Amid a scene of great excitement, the young men started, one proceeding towards Llanybyther along the Cardiganshire road and the other along the Carmarthenshire road. The competitors passed each other at Crosshands, Llanybyther. Bridgwater having thus gained slightly on hia opponent. Thirty-six minutes after the time he started, Bridgwater arrived at Harford- square amid tremendous cheering and Thomas cime in eight minutes later. Thomas declared that his machine had got out of order on the way and that he had to adjust it near Cefnbryn Farm. He thought under the circumstances that he was entitled to try conclusions once more. It is under- stood that the race will be run over again, Bridgwater having generously accepted the challenge of Thomas.

Mr Lloyd's many friends in Lampeter and district received the news of his preferment with great pleasure and they fed convinced that he will make a mark in his new position. COLLEGE APPOINTMENT.—A meeting of the Council of St. David's College was held at the College Hall on Wednesday last to appoint a suc- cessor to the Rev R. Camber Williams as theo- logical lecturer, the rev. gentleman having recently been appointed canon missioner for the diocese of St. Davd's. The Lord Bishop of St. David's pre- sided and there was a full muster of the Council men present. There were many applications re- ceived and the appointment was given to the Rev C. Harris, B.

Tivy Jones, Esq., mayor, and the Rev T. C. Edmunds. Charges of Obstruction: Admission goes jor Nought.—The two obstruction cases adjrurned from the last Court were dealt with by the Bench. The decision of the Bench practically gives per- mission to the tradespeople to obstruct the high- ways in future without interference by the police. The cases, which were brought forward as tests, were those in which Samuel Davies-Jones, the Emporium, Lampeter. ironmonger, was charged by D.C.C. Williams with having obstructed the free passage of the highway at High-street, Lampeter, by allowing two mowing machines and a quantity of iron netting to remain thereon for an unreason- able time on May 17th and Walter Davies, Lon- don House, draper, was charged with obstructing the free passage of the highway at Harford-square by placing three empty boxes thereon for an un- reasonable time on May 23rd.—Mr Daniel Watkins solicitor, Lampeter, appeared for Walter Davies and Samuel Davies-Jones appeared in per- son.-Deputy Chief Constable Williams said the case against Davies had been gone into at the last Court when Mr Watkins admitted that a technical offence had been committed.-The Chairman W e adjourned the case at the last Court to see what was the feeling of the Town Council in the matter.-D.C.C. Williams But we are not proceeding under the Towns Police Clauses Act. We are not acting under the advice of the Town Council m these particular cases.—The Chairman But we should have an expression of their opinion before we do anything definite. What do you consider to be an obstruction ?—D.C.C. Williams That which interferes with the free passage of the highway in any way.—Mr D Tivy Jones Mr Watkins admits a technical offence Mr Watkins Yes, and yet I do not think it wise to be stringent unless a certain amount of incon- venienje is caused to pedestrians. The Rev T C Edmunds: Yes, exaetty.-D.C.C. Williams: The public has a right to the whole of the highway. The question to be decided is as to whether an offence within the meaningof the Act has been com- mitted. Mr atkins admits a technical offence.— Mr Watkins explained that his client had only left the boxes outside his shop for a few hours. The boxes arrived by train on fair day and his employees were so busy that they could not then remove them out of the way.—D.C.C Williams: It was not fair day. The boxes were left on the highway from eleven a.m. until eight p.m. That is an unreasonable time. I may say however that Mr Walter Davies has not repeated the offence since the summons was served; but Mr S. Davies-Jones is repeating the offence daily.—The Chairman It is a very awkward matter for the magistrates to deal with this question. We might injure the tradesmen. They have no place whence they can remove these goods, hence they are left in the street.—D.C.C. Williams But they leave them on the street as a kind of show. If you say there is nothing wrong in it then we are powerless.—The Chairman: Perhaps we had better adjourn again.—Mr D. Tivy Jones did not see the good ot adjourning the cases. If an offence was proved, the course of the Tench was clear.—Mr Watkins asked why should the police take proceedings against two tradesmen more than against those who put up standings on fair days, and who actually paid half-a-crown 'or so to persons who occupied the houses opposite for the privilege. — Replying to fur her questions by the Chairman, D.C.C. Williams said the cases brought forward were test cases. After they had been dealt with by the Bench, the po!ic would know exactly how to proceed. Except in the case of Mr Davies-Jones, who had the machines in front of his premises that day, all the other tradesmen had taken heed of the warning given them, the streets being clear for pedestrians.—Mr Watkins emphasized the fact that his client would have re- moved the boxes tarly in the day had he not been so busy attending to people who came to the lair.— D.C.C. Williams: Mr Watkins is misinformed it was not fair day, and I say if the boxes were on the highway on fair days, the offence would be aggravated. — Mr Watkins Perhaps it was a clearance sale. I know there was something which made them busy.—The Chairman said the Bench should know the feeling of the Council in the matter. — Deputy Chief Constable Williams: If you dismiss these cases, you take the ground entirely from under our feet.—Mr Watkins I may say that persons have no right to take boxes from their premises and place them on the highway. But there is au excuse in a case where boxes are brought from tiie Station and allowed by the busy tradesman to remain outside the door for some time. This was the case with my client.—The Chairman That is to ay. the tradesmen ought to be allowed to keep boxes or articles outside their premises for a reasonable time. — D.C.C. Williams I do not admit that the tradespeople have a light to place boxes outside their premises at all. If an accident occurred as the result of these boxes and machines obstructing the thoroughfare, the shop- keepers would be amenable.—The Rev T. C. Edmunds said it was difficult fur the shopkeepers to tind a place to remove these boxes to during the da.y time.—D.C.C. Williams The highway authorities are not supposed to provide accommoda- tion for them.—The Chairman If we fine them and compel them not to do it harm woull b done the tradespeople.—Mr D. Tivy Jones But we must administer the law. We are here for that purpose. —P.S. Thomas Except in the case of Mr Davies- Jones, all the tradespeople have discontinued obstructing the streets.—In a conversation with his brother magistrates, the Chairman was heard to say that he would certainly not fine defendants, afterward adding that the Town Council did not enforce the provisions of the Market Act. — Ulti- mately he announced that the Bencn had agreed to dismiss the case against Walter Davies, evidence in regard to which was given at the last Court.— Evidence was then given by P.S. Thomas in the case against Samuel Davies .1 0nes. He S'lid there were two mowing machines partly on the pave- ment and partly on the road and eleven pieces of wire nettingin the channel. Defendant told him that he was not going to discontinue the offence-De- fendant, addressing the Bench, asked why did not the police take proceedings against the persons who placed their carts on the highway ? On the day of the gymanfa gauu there were twenty-one convey- ances before the Royal Oak and fifteen between the Bush and the Crow n. Why should the shop- keepers not have the privilege of placing boxes and articles in front of their shops ? Machines and other articles had been placed before the Emporium, long before his time and he did not see why they should be stopped.—The Bench, having deliberated, also dismissed the case against Davies Jones.—D.C.C. Williams asked if the Bench would give their reasons for dismissing the cases ?—Mr I ivy Jones (sarcastically) Judgment has been given. I think it is best not to give reasons. (Laughter.) — The Chairman: We dismiss the cases.—D.C.C. Williams But the facts are not disputed.—The Chairman I think there ought to be a full bench of magistrates to go into cases of this sort.—D.C.C. Williams It is nothing to me, personally.—The Chairman There ought to be a full bench. Maintenance.—Orders by consent were made on the application of Mr David Evans, relieving officer, against Rees Lloyrl, Pimlico, London, for la Richard Lloyd. Castell, Llanwenog. for Is and Henry Davies, Tyrwaen, Llanfihangel Rhosy- corn, Is 6d. FATA ACCIDENT AT DERRY ORMOND. On Monday afternoon about three, a boy named William Hughes, aged ten, son of Mr John Hughes, Maesyfelin, Derry Ormond, met with his death as the result of a fall from a cart. A man named David Davies, who is in the employ of Mr W. Inglis Jones, Derry Ormond, was driving a cart along the r- ad leading fr, m the Pond to the Coedpatk Quarry when three boys jnmped into the vehicle. Their entry in the cart seemed to have frightened the horse which instai tly bolted. One of the boys, when he saw that the hone was about to bolt, jumped to the ground and David Davies, the driver, who was sitting on the shaft, also sprang to the ground with the object of holding the animal hack. TiJ" two boys were forced to remain in the cart and before Davies was able to bring the horse to a standstill, it had brought the cart to the edge of the road. Haifa minuoe later, the horse and cart fell into the gap betweeo the road and the hedge, gaps of this nature being common in country roads. Both buvs were thrown into the gully, the bottom of which was sev- eral feet from the road. The driver tan forward to the assistance of the boys. One of them immed- iately got up having escaped without injury, but the other boy, William Hughes, iay on the ground groaning. The noise occasioned by the upsetting of the cart drew the attention of Hughes's father who was at work in the quarry a few yards away. He picked up his son and sp to him. The poor boy groaned as if iu great pain, but drl not speak a word, and about forty minutes after the accident had taken place he died. Dr J. Rees Evans, who bad been sent for, arrived soon after. The inquest was held at Ma^sleiinfach on Tues- day afternoon by Dr Abel Evans, coroner. Mr Samuel Davies, Coedpark was the foreman of the jury.—Evidence was given by David Davies, Penlangoetre, the driver, who said he was going to the quarry for some stones. As soon as the boys jumped into the cart the horse became restive, with the result that it ran itself and cart over the hedge. He found the two boys lying side by side after they had been pitched out of the cart. When he came up one of them, William Evans, Goetrefach, got up uninjured. He could not account for the death of the boy Hughes. He presumed that he fell on his head. The horse was generally very quiet and he had not seen it run away before.—Evidence was also given by John Hughes, deceased's father.—The jury returned a verdict of accidental death as the result of a fall.—This is the third fatal accident which has occurred in this neighbourhood within the past two years.
YSBYTTS YSTWYTH. EARLY HAY HARVEST.—Mr. Tom Morgan, Tyn- pompren, harvested a crop cf ryegrass last week, which is considered unusually early on a farm situated over 1,200 feet above the level of the sea. The crop was exceptionally fine in appearance and a very heavy one. Beinsr close to the road, scores of passers by during the past few weeks have entered the field to measure the length of the growth. It was pronounced by everyone as the heaviest ryegrass crop seen in the whole of Cardiganshire this season. It may be added that no farm in the whole county has undergone such improvements during the last five years as this hill- side farm, where over a dozen tenants have tried their hands during the past thirty years and looked upon it as farming proof."

OBITUARY.—A unique and prominent figure in this neighbourhood passed away on June llth. in tbe person of Mr. Daniel Morgan, Gwarlevel. He was 78 years oldjand was a native of Llanfihangel-y-Cruddyn. He came to this place about 33 years as a mechanic, employed by the Lisburne Mines Company, and gradually worked his way up from the bottom to the top of the ladder. The erection of all the machinery at tne Lisburne and Frongoch Mines for a period of about 40 years was entrusted to him. He was often called away to other places by the director. Mr. John Taylor, to look after similar work. He was an original character—stern, unbending, and outspoken. He treated high and low in the same manner. No one could be more respected by his employers than he was. He bore an unimpeachable character in every respect. He was a member of the Calvinistic Metho- dise Church at Yspytty and had been a deacon for over thirty years, during which time he took an active part in all matters connected with the Church. He was renowned and unequalled as a Sunday School teacher and catecniser. He kept pace with the advancement of the age and was in many ways quite youthful. He leaves three sons and two daughters to mourn his loss, viz., Mr. Daniel Morgan, Minera, mechanic Rev. Isaac Morgan, Llangoedmor; Rev. Joseph Morgan, Aberdare; Mrs. Edwards, Rock House, Rhydfendigaid and his youngest daughter Marv. The funeral took place on the following Thurs- day at Ysbytty Churchyard. The respect in which he was held was shown by the large concourse of people that followed his remains to the grave. At the house the Rev. T. Mason Jones officiated, and in the Church and at the grave the funeral service was preached by the .Rev. John Jones, vicar, and the the Rev. N. Jones, Eglwys Newydd. Printed and Published by J.
