TOWyN. FISHING.—The foot netters had a grand time of it last week in the broad estuary of the river. One afternoon they took no less than 270 grey mullet. Each fiah averaged over one pound in weight. A large quantity of flatfish is often taken. The aalmon nets in the river Dysynni are not idle and sometimes the drawers of them are well rewarded for their labour. FLOWERS IN DESOLATE PLACES —Many a hard battle has been fought over the question of improv- ing the Pill road 10 the Dys-yuni rver. One of its most redoubt.ble cbampioaa from the begin- ning to the present dy has been Mr Samuel Edmunjs and it is very pleasing to find that he is already being rewarded to a certain extent. Oae day last week he found growing on the side of this broad roadway some Vfry onoice wild flowers and also some -strom{ healthy plants of vegetable marrow and tomatoes. Mr Edmunds, who is a proficient gardener, took up these plants with care and transferred them to his garden. VOLUNTEERS.—The Volunteers, who had been camping out at Porthcawl for a week or so, returned on Saturday, Jure 22nd, at about nine p.m. They entered the town with their band preceding them. The silver cup which they had won at the tug-of-war was borne to the town by it bugler. The inhabitants turned out to welcome tnem. It is very pleasing to record that the Towyn Compauy stood second to none for discipline, smartness, and good behaviour. This is highly creditable to Captain Kirkby, the Other officers and to the rank and file. TOWYN dND PENNAL SCHOOL BOARD (Special Meeting), TUESDAY, JULY 25TH.— Present: Rev J. O.
