TRAP ACCIDENT.—Last Saturday, as Mr. Thomas Lloyd, milkman, Skinner-street, was going to Clarach in his trap, he was overtaken on the hill above Cwm woods by Mr. Francis, Wallog's carriage.

Mr. Francis lost no time in releasing him and giving the best aid he could. THE SEAso-Late though it be in the season yet the town remains remarkably full of visitors. It is true that the number of windows containing cards bearing the legend" Apartments to Let" is on the increase, still the Terrace at night is as full almost as in the height of the season in August. z, This is due partly to the very tine weather we enjoy but mostly to the growing popularity of Aberyst- wyth as a seaside resort. CONGREGATIONALISM.—The annual meetings of I the Welsh Congregationalists of Liverpoc.1 and Birkenhead were held last week and were very largely attended. On Saturday last a meeting was held at Great George Street Chapel, and subjects on popular questions the day affecting matters of religion were discussed. Among others, Rev.

The accounts shewed a balance in hand of Z9 10s. and that amount was shared equally between juveniles, giving them 3s. 6d. each. A vote of thanks was awarded to Mr. R. Edwards James, solicitor, of Cardiff, and also to Mr. E. Jenkins, Gwalia, Llandrindod Wells, for their kindness and help during the choir's visit to Cardiff. Several choruses were snng and a pleasant evening was spent. It is to be hoped the choir will rally together again during the coming winter and prepare itself to enter fresh fields and pastures new.

WINTER EVENING CLASSES.-A.ccording to a report upon the work done at the Art classes last winter at the Board School, presented by the Art master—Mr. Appleton—to the School Board on Tuesday evening, is appears that there arc splendid y I opportunities in these classes for the young people of Aberystwyth and district to qualify themselves in Art subjects. During last session much talent was displayed by a number of pupils, and during the session now about to open, great opportunities win be off ere(I to the pupils to continue their study in Art under new conditions, which, we believe, are most favourable. For a small fee a pupil can enrol himself as a member of the school, and take any or all the Art subjects for study, and work ac- cording to a graduated scheme towards any branch he may -choose to qualify in such as designing, stencil work, monochrome, painting architecture, and other branches. We would draw the particu- lar attention of all young people to their advan- tages within their reach of improving firmselves intellectually and for their trade and profession during the winter evenings under a competent 8'1<1 distinguished teacher. The Science classes will open at the same time, and among other subjects instructions will be given on machine drawing, building constructions, physiography, mathematics and practical geometry. The Evening Continna- tioil School will open for boys and girls during the list week in October in the usual subjects of in- struction. Lessons will be given the boys in Elementary Science illustrated by experiments and the girls will be taught needlework as in "the past. The School Board is deserving of commendation for their efforts in providing such a wide and use- ful cirriculum for the rising generation, and their classes should be patronized as widely as possible, that they may do the greatest amount of good in the town and also be a financial success, as it would be a great loss to the rates if these classes were not attended well. SCHOOL BOARD.—A meeting of the above board was held on Tuesday evening when there were present: Alderman P. Jones (chairman), Mr. Griffiths, Mr. W. Thomas, and Mr. T. Hall, together with the Officers of the Board.- -Requisition lists from the teachers were passed.—It was decided to advertise for an assistant mistress in the Girls' department.—Mr. C. J. Ball was promoted second assistant at the Boys' department, and Mr. Davies, of Llansawel, appointed third assistant (ex-P.T.) at a salary of Z50 per annum.—The Headmaster read a statement of the attendance at the Aberystwyth Board School, and compared it with that of other parts of the country, which showed that the Boys' department had a percentage higher than the average percentage in •Scotland by 1.5 per cent. The Girls' department was equal to the percentage for England, while the Infants' showed a percentage of attendance higher than the average for Wales by 2 per cent. The three departments had a higher percentage than that for Cardiganshire by 12 per cent., and were just equal to that for England, i.e.. 84 per cent.—A communication from the Secretary of the Welsh Exhibition was read, which stated that the test papers sent from the Boys' department to the Cardiff. Exhibition had been selected to be exhibited at the Paris Exhibition.—It was ordered to record 01 the minutes that the Board express satisfaction at the fact that the work of the school is deemed worthy of being selected to be sent to the Paris Exhibition.—Science and Art Committee: Nlr. Appleton gave a report of the work done at last winter's classes, and arrangements were made for holding classes during the coming winter, on a more ambitious scale than formerly. In addition to the art subjects, classes will be held in type- writing, shorthand, building and mad ine con- struction. practical geometry, physiography, and mathematics.

Mrs. Jane Jones, 19, Bridge-street, requests to state that she was not the Jane Jones charged. z7 CYCLI-NG.The members of the North Cardigan- shire Cycling Club had a pleasant run on Tuesday. Starting from the North Tollgate the cyclists. .•lumbering 23, proceeded via Borth to a house, or rather a bungalow, called Glengorse, where tea was provided on the roof by Mrs. Ellis Morgan, whose hospitality was much appreciated. The run was a most enjoyable one in every respect. No QUORUM.—A meeting of the Intermediate School Governors was to have been held at the Town Hall on Friday morning, but once more no quorum could be formed, only three members, Rev. T. Levi, Mrs. Jessie Williams, and Mr. J. P. Thomas, with the clerk (Mr. John Evans) putting in an appearance. Rev. T. Levi scoured the town in search of members, but none could be found. It transpired that the Chairman (Mr. George Davies) had been suddenly called to London on the previous day. ON THE HILL.—A capital entertainment was given on the Constitution Hill on Thursday even- ing by Mr. Gilbert Rogers and others. The crowd was estimated at 700, and they thoroughly en- joyed themselves. Mr. Gilbert Rogers, who was the lion of the evening, gave no less than 9 songs, most of which were received with boisterous en- thusiasm. Mr. D. H. Peddie obliged with three songs. A selection by the Orchestra-" Zampa was much appreciated. Dancing was freely in- dulged in during the evening. SACRED CONCERT.—Another very successful Sacred Concert was held at the Pier Pavilion on Sunday evening. A splendid programme had been arranged, and there was a crowded audience, who thoroughly appreciated the music provided for them. The soloists were Miss M. J. Jones (Lam- peter), and Mr. Howard, L.C.M. (London). The orchestra, under the conductorship of Mr. J. H. Rowe, did its part admirably. The accompanists were Messrs. Edgar Foster and Francis Foster, who I gave entire satisfaction.' HARRY COLLINS' BENEFIT CONCERT.—A grand Concert came off at the Pier Pavilion on Thursday evening last. The occasion was the seventh annual benefit of Harry Collins. The pavilion was crowded with an audience that testitiod their satisfaction with the excellent programme arranged by fre- quent applause. In addition to the Minstrel troupe, there were several star artistes." including Prince Hassan (high telephone wire walker). Beni Zoug- Zoug ("funny school-boy"), Percy Meye (Lady impersonator and skirt dancer), the Darktown Quartette of comedians, and Fred Hadley, song and (lance artiste. The whole concluded with a burlesque sketch, in which the principal members of the troupe appeared. The sketch was very cleverly acted, and caused roars upon roars of laughter. The Concert was an unqualified success, from every point of view.; LITERARY AND DEBATING SOCIETY. Some years ago there flourished at Aberystwyth a Lit- erary and Debating Society, but for some reason or other it was allowed to die a natural death, and no one took any trouble to restore animation. However, as another winter is approaching, now is the time for taking steps to resuscitate it. There will be plenty of accommodation—there is the Market Hall and the Assembly Rooms—and it only remains for someone to set things moving. Many are of opinion that it would be well if the Mayor took the initiative in the matter, and doubtless His Worship, if approached, will be only too pleased to partake in a movement so well calculated to keep our young men's intellectual perceptions keen and sharp. UITLASDERs.-Here is a true story of an event which found 'a local habitation' within a hundred miles of this town recently Charlie and Tom were room-mates, but occupied different beds. One night they had been out together, and on returning in the early hours both were considerably elevated, and all the inmates of the house bad long retired to bed. However, Charlie and Tom managed to crawl up to the bedroom and sought long and patiently for matches and candle; after knocking the pitcher off the washstand and nearly ,mashing the looking glass, they gave up the search and went to bed, but owing to the darkness and confusion of their senses they made a slight mistake—both got into the same bed, Charlie on the one side and his companion on the other. I say, Tom," said Charlie, touching somebody's calf, "there's a fellow in my bed." "Funny thing," exclaimed Tom. feeling a strange elbow in the regions of his ribs, there's somebody in my bed too." Is there, though," said Charlie, "lets kick 'em out." "Right you are," said Tom, and accordingly the two friends began to kick, and entered into a fierce mutual combat. In about two minutes Charlie was sprawling on the floor, and Tom was left in sole possession of the bed. For a moment all was silent. I say, Charlie," said Tom. What," said Tom, sulkily. I've kicked my fellow out." "Well, you are luckier than I," said Charlie, "for this scoundrel has chucked me clean on the floor."

J. James' plan of proposed offices in Baker-street was de- ferred until a more accurate plan of the ground was received.—Mr. T. E.
