An Ancient Welsh Industry: ] Dolgelley Webs. BY "PHILIP SIDNEY." Tis an ordinary Country Town, but of good Account, for sale of Welsh Cottons [Webs]; we've no account of its Church, but'tis said its steeple, in which hangs a bell, is but a yew tree growing in the mountain, yet here are commodious Inns for Travellers." So runs the description of Dolgelley given by good old Andrew Brice, in his 'Topographic Dictionary" of which he was both author and printer in the city of Exeter, in the year 1759. Of its Yew tree Steeple, and its commodious Inns I am not minded to write now, rather, asking my readers to bear with me awhile, as I tell them some- thing about the Webs, probably one of, if not indeed the very oldest industry still surviving and flourishing, within a few miles from our office doors. This weaving of woollen webs has been the back bone of Dolgelley for at least 400 years, and what is quite as remarkable has remained from the be- ginning until this year in one family, the head of which to-day is Mr. John Meyrick Jones, the Mayor of Dolgelley. For the last half century he has been the guiding hand of this ancient industry, before him for another 50 years was his father, Mr. John Jones, who in turn succeeded his father, Mr. Hugh Jones, of Pandy. As is right and seemly women too have had their share in steering this bark, as witness Mrs. Jones, the wife of Dr. Edward Jones, J.P., and her sister. For several centuries then, Dolgelley and its neighbourhood have been noted for the manufac- ture of this woollen cloth, known as Welsh Webs. It was until quite recently the principal trade and source of emolument to this town, situated between Rivers Aran and Wnion, near where the latter joins the Mawddach. Nearly every poor man in the town, and every small farmer in the district had his quaint, solid hand loom, and wove his webs, to support his family. This Flannel manufacture of Dolgelley is specially noted in Acts of Parliament of King James I, whilst the Privy Council of Charles III issued two successive orders for its regulation. During the interval of peace which lasted some years between the close of the American War, and the beginning of the great European revolution of 1793, Dolgelley was calculated to return from Z50,000 to Z100,000 annually in this article only. These webs were chiefly used for clothing the armies, and the slaves on the American Estates. r- They were then exported by way of Barmouth to London and Liverpool. But when France de- clared war against England, this maritime trade ceased, and the web merchant was compelled to employ the far more expensive mode of land con- veyance, by means of pack horses and carts by way of Newtown, Shrewsbury and Chester. Over and over again testimony as to the value in which these webs were held for their durability and strength, was forthcoming from the agents of the Slave owners, nothing satisfied them but these products from the Dolgelley looms, which Mr. Meyrick Jones' forefathers were every spring regularly called to furnish. Agents personally travelled to this town, then far more remote and difficult of access than now, to place their orders, which were paid for in bills of four months' date from time of delivery. And to the credit of all concerned be it recorded that such a thing as a dishonoured bill was absolutely un- known, every transaction was met in due course. Although no orders came from America after the war, the trade suffered little if any from the abolition of slavery, for so greatly was the real Welsh web esteemed, and so successful was the Dolgelley manufacture, that for years afterwards the webs were bought on the spot by English merchants, who employed agents to wait o. Messrs Jones for the purpose of securing their out-put, and as late as the year 1820 upwards of £1,000 weekly was thus spent in the district. But the heavy expense incurred in the carriage of the goods, however, caused the trade to languish, and it was not until the advent of railways into Wales, that any attempt could be made to regain as far as England was concerned, the lost trade. Meanwhile the method of manufacturing the article had vastly improved, stronger the webs could not possibly be Tendered, but much was accomplished in making it finer in texture, and more attractive in tone and colour. That popularity was again established is due, without any doubt and without any undue measure of praise, to the presistent exertions of Mr Meyrick Jones, who laboured hard and successfully to re-introduce these flannels and tweeds to the English public, through the medium of the various Manchester houses. Strange as it may appear to some, these Welsh tweeds are still made on hand looms, which differ but little, if at all from the primitive ones of past centuries. No visitor should leave Dolgelley without taking a peep at this primitive method of making flannels and tweeds. The mills are situated in some of the most romantic spots in the valley and form favourite subjects for artists. Inside they are as novel as outside they are picturesque. The labour is hand labour, after the manner to gladden Mr. Ruskin's heart. During Mr Meyrick Jones's long business career he has been brought into contact with Royalty on many occasions. So far back as 1868 he had the honour of presenting H.R.H. the Princess of Wales with a hand-loom Linsey Poplin dress. At the Royal Eisteddfod in Aberystwyth in 1865, and again in Chester in 1866, prize medals have fallen to Mr Meyrick Jones for the excellence of the wares from the Pandy Mills. The wools from which these materials are manu- factured arc of the highest class which Wales- our country of splendid wools—can produce. Some of the Webs are so stout and strong that they would seem to be the lineal descendants of those Israelitish materials that, we are told, endured the wear and tear of 40 years Mr and Mrs Meyrick Jones have many and in- teresting reminiscences of various men and women of world-wide fame, who have sought them and been their guests in bygone years. Alfred Tennyson, poet laureate, and his wife and two sons, were their guests for some five weeks at a stretch, long before the world knew him as Lord Alfred Tennyson, or Australia had the inestimaole benefit of liis son, Hallam, Lord Tennyscn, living in the colony. The daily piles of correspondence which even then arrived for Tennyson are still remembered. He would ]eave them for his wife-gentle, loving Anne Sellwuod—to sort and read, aye, and to answer. whilst he was off and away on the Welsh mountains, drinking in much of that inspiration to be so richly poured out in song in after years. Amongst Mr Meyrick Jones's treasures are the letter. v. t him from time to time by the poet, who sLeps now near Chaucer in the Abbey at Westir ih er. ;nd who invited Mr Meyrick Jones, andtf fitt. Air Robert Oliver Rees, of Dolgelley, to visit at Freshwater, and there spend a few days. An( of whom one would like to hear mucn \\<1, "ue late Francis W. Newman, probably more celebrated tho' less before the world than his brother John Henry, Cardinal Newman. The visit was about the time when Francis Newman was professor of Greek, Latin, and English language at Manchester New College, now known as Manchester College, and located close to Keble College, Oxford, but -then in Manchester, where at the same time the Rev. James Martineau now England's greatest thinker and philosopher, of 94 years' life, held the post of professor of Mental and Moral Philosophy. One who met Francis Newman then in Dolgelley tells the writer how he was to be seen, net in hand pursuing the glorious butterflies in their haunts amidst the romantic mountains and vales of Merionethshire—" a charming man, one to whom you were drawn to listen-, when he spoke." Revesting to Tennyson; i is of interest to record that the- tweed in which He was habitually clothed was the; product of Mr. Meyrick Jones' loom, and is known. in the market, as-" Tennyson Tweed," the name long since given it by the manufacturer in compliment to his guest. Age coming on apace, Mr. Meyrick Jones, now venerable in years and esteemed by all who know him-and who does not in these parts at least ?— has felt it advisable to put this ancient Welsh in- dustry on a firm and lasting foundation. Not without long and deep thought has the recent change been made, by which Messrs. Solomon Andrews and Son, of Cardiff and London, have become the owners of *&e mills. As men of capital, and with the local guidance and business energy of Mr. John Griffiths, they are expected to largely develop this well-established industry, and to render it even more successful and valuable in, the future than it has- been in the past. There is-raw wool in abundance on the hills; why, then, export it when it can be turned into webs on the spot ? There is.running water more than sufficient for the needs of the various industries clustering on its banks 1: why, then, let it not still be used ? There is, above all, the reputation, gained through many centuries, for genuine work, and no shoddy, nobly maintained and deepened by Mr. Meyrick Jones; let it not depart from our midst. More than ever at the present lime are well- established local industries needed in our midst; the country side has nous too many that it can afford- to lose one which affords to the dweller on the soil a means of subsistence, and prevents him from making his way to the congested and over- crowded centres of industry, as they are called, but centres of idleness and distress as they are often found to be,, by men and women flocking to them and pecting to find their streets paved with gold. May Andrew Briee's Steeple in which hangs a bell never be called upon to sound the knell of a departing industry, and may Mr. and Mrs. Meyrick Jones, for many years to come, see their lives' work flourish and expand.
LAMPETER. COUNTY COURT. The bimonthly County Court was held here on Wednesday, the 6th instant, before his Honour Judge Bishop. NANTCWNLLE PARISH COUNCIL V. W. WILLIAMS, OAKHILL, NANTCWNLLE. This was an action to recover £3 10s. for damages for wrongfully entering plaintiff's land,. pulling down their fences, and cuttingpeat thereon. A further claim of 10s. for damage, for trespass committed by defendant's cattle and sheep were, made Mr. A. J. Hughes, Aberystwyth, appeared for. the Council, and Mr. Watkins, Lampeter for the defendant. The case appeared somewhat complicated, and a lengthy hearing took place. For the Parish Council the Rev, Emlyn Jones, Bwlchyllan, the chairman of the Council, was called, and also the clerk, and for the defence the defendant and one Nathaniel Evans of Penuwch, a former tenant of Oakhill. Judgment was given for plaintiffs for 15s., with costs on the higher scale. NEW TRIAL. Anne Williams, Brynmair, Llanfairchydogan, v. John Evans, Llanfairfawr, in the same parish, farmer. The plaintiff sued her late master for the recovery of the sum of £ 8 3s., for which she obtained judg- ment at a previous Court in the absence of the defendant. At the last Court defendant, upon the application of Mr. D. Frank Lloyd, obtained a new trial, on the gronnd that the summons had not been properly served on him. Mr. A. J. Hughes appeared for plaintiff, and Mr. D. Frank Lloyd for defendant. The claim was made up as follows :—Wages from 12th November, 1895, to 5th May, 1899, at P,14 5s. a year, iC6 18.; Value of clothing detained by defendant, iEl; Special damages for their deten- tion, 5s.; Total, £8 3s. The defendant admitted the sum of E4 16s. 6d., made up as follows :—Five months services at P14 per annum, £5 10s.; By cash on account 3s. 6d., By value of cheese sold 10s., total 13s. 6d.; Balance, P,4 16s. 6d. Defendant denied having detained plaintiff's articles of clothing, and disputed the rest of her claim. Judgment was givenfort7 and costs. TOWN COUNCIL. A meeting of the Council was held on Wednesday, the 6th instant. Present: Alderman D Tivy Jones (mayor) presiding, Aldermen John Jones, S. Davies Jones, and J. Ernest Lloyd,Councillors Hugh Walker, Dr. Griffiths, Joseph Davies, D. H. Evans, David Price, T. D. Lloyd, Samuel Davies and Evan Davies, Messrs. E. D. Rees, acting clerk, and Lewis Davies, surveyor. CHRISTMAS MARKET. Messrs D. P. Davies, Royal Oak Hotel; John Davies, Cambrian Factory: and John Roberts, Bridge Street; appeared before the Council on behalf of the Lampeter Poultry Club to ask for the use of the market place to hold their next show as well as a contribution of E5 towards the funds. Alderman S. Davies Jones proposed, Mr. J. Joshua Davies seconded, and it was agreed unani- mously that the two requests be granted. REPORT. Professor Walker, as chairman of the Finance and General Purposes Committee brought in the report of that Committee. The following recom- mendations of the Committee were adopted :—(a) That plans of the butter factory now in course of erection near Maesyfelin, should be required to be submitted to the Council, (b) That plans of the Bryn Road Drainage Scheme be submitted, (c) That the Postal Authorities be asked to provide pillar boxes in Bridge Street, St. Thomas' Square, and near the Police Station, and a Book Post Box at the office. The Committee recommended that it was desir- able that contracts should be obtained for work such as had been done at the Market Place at a cost of £ 8. LIGHTING IMPROVEMENTS. Alderman John Jones submitted the report of the Public Lights and Street Committee who recom- mended that a lamp-post should be placed in Har- ford Square with three separated globes to which a meter might be attached. That two lamps extra be placed in Bridge Street, one in North Road, one at the Market Place and one at Peterwell Terrace, the latter to have a water-tap attached. The Committee also recommended that all water gulleys should be trapped. Mr. D. H. Evans proposed that the question of additional lamps be referred back to the Streets Committee for further details. He should like to know whether in case a lamp be placed in Harford Square sufficient width would be allowed for the road, and as to the proposal to place a lamp in Market Street he should like to know whether that street had been taken over by the Council. Mr. Ernest Lloyd said there was no doubt there had been a dedication of this street to the public by Mr. Harford though he did not believe the Council had taken it over. Mr. T. D. Lloyd said he would propose that with the exception of the lamp in Market-street he would support the report. As no one seconded Mr. D. H. Evans* amend- ment nor the amendment of Mr. T. D. Lloyd the report was apopted in its entirety. Dr. Griffiths said he expected that some notice would have been taken of the sewage pools down in the fields, and of the rubbish heap, both of which Mr. Harford complained of, and threatened to take action against the Council. Alderman JohnJones said the committee would attend to the matter. DRAINAGE. Dr. Griffiths in accordance with notice referred to the Bridge-street sewer outflow which he said was not in a satisfactory condition. His proposition was that the outlet might t. carried down by means of pipes to the clay pit and to convey away the sewage that ran down towards Barley Mow from the Common and likewise the sewage in the nursery which during heavy rain ran over the land down to the field. Dr. Griffiths then produced a cigar box by means of which he gave an illustration of the septic tank system which might be adopted. He concluded by proposing that Messrs John Jones, J. iernest Lloyd, Joseph Davies and D. H. Evans be a com- mittee to consider a report upon the matter. Professor Walker seconded the proposition which was agreed to Dr. Griffiths being added to the committee.

TOWYN. COUNTY SCHOOL. A special meeting of the Governors of the County School was held on Saturday last, when there were present, Mr H. Haydn Jones (chairman), Mrs Rowlands, Messrs Meyrick Roberts, H. W. Griffith. and Revs. Humphrey Willjmn", and Hubert Jones, with Messrs Thomas Jones (headmaster), E. Derrv Evans (assistant master), Miss Jenkins (senior mi-tress), and Mr E. J. JEvans (clerk). The Clerk read the report of the committee which had been appointed to fix upon a memorial to Mr John Corbett. It stated.that it bad been decided to construct a decorated entrance prate to the schools, plai n and sketches of which had bn re- ceived from the architects, and were considered very satisfactory. The report was adopted, and on the motion of Rev. Robert Jones, seconded by Mr H. W Griffith, it was agreed that the plans bet sent to Mr Corbett for his approval. The Rev. R. Jones proposed that shorthand be added to the school curriculum without any ad- ditional charge for teaching same. The Headmaster stated that if an additional charge was made the pupils would apply them- selves more diligently to the subject. Mrs Rowlands proposed that a charge of 2s 6d per term be made for teaching this'subject, believ- ing that thereby parents would send their children regularly to the class, while such a nominal sum would not debar anvorse-from attending. I- Mr Meyrick Roberts seconded the resolution, which was carried unanimously. The Chairman having declined to preside at the annual school concert to be held on the 21st inst., the matter of securing^a. gentleman from outside the Board of Governors to fill the position was delegated to the Clerk. The report of H.M.'js Inspector upon the work of the school for the past twelve months was sub- mitted which, with the exception, of one- subject, was considered to be very satisfactory. The Chairman read a statement of accounts for the past year, which showed an amount of £20. 11s. 6d. outstanding in, respect of school fees, etc. The Clerk was directed, on the motion of the Rev. Humphrey Williams, seconded by Mr. Griffiths, to apply for the immediate payment of this amount.. The Chairman, drew attention to, the death of Sir Henry Tate. The deceased, he said, had con- tributed £550. towards the funds of Towyn School, and to all educational movements in the Princi- pality he had been a generous supporter The Chairman then proposed a vote of condolence with the wife and family of the deceased gentleman. This was seconded, and carried in silence. Photographs of the different rooms of the school building, which are to be inserted in the pro- spectus, were submitted to the Governors, from Mr. C. U. Young. These were now approved of, and it was decided that they be included in the prospectus.
Resignation of Mr. O. M. Edwards. The Executive of the Merionethshire Liberal Association met on Thursday last in the meeting room of the Independent Chapel, Bala, when a letter was read from Mr. O. M. Edwards, M.P. stating his desire to retire from the Parliamentary representation of the county. The chair was occupied by Dr. Edward Jones, and there was a full attendance. In the course of a discussion upon the letter, it was explained that the executive had no power to accept or decline the resignation. Under these circumstances, it was decided to convene a meeting of the Council of the County Association on Thursday, February 15th next, at Dolgelley, when a definite decision will be arrived at.
The Rotation of Crops in the Kitchen Garden. At a meeting of the Lampeter Paxton Society on Friday evening week, Mr. Taylor, head gardener to Mr. J. C. Harford, Falcondale, read an interesting paper on the above subject. Mr. Taylor said the principle of the rotation of crops might be illus- trated by considering the demands of the most common garden crops,namely cabbage and potatoes. An analysis of the ashes of the cabbage gives 21 per cent. of sulphuric acid, 12 per cent. of phos- phoric acid; 20 per cent. of soda, 11 per cent. of of potash, and 20 per cent. of lime. It is evident that we cannot grow cabbage on a soil that is destitute of these ingredients, the obnoxious odour of sulphur emitted by decaying cabbages indicates that this mineral is an important constituent of the cabbage, the ashe3 of the potatoe contains 55 per cent. of potash, 2 per cent. of soda, 7 per cent. of sulphuric acid, 19 per cent. of phosphoric acid and 2 per cent. of lime. Now the lesson for the grower is, that to prepare a soil for cabbage it is of the utmost importance to employ a manure contain- ing sulphates, phosphates, soda and potash salts in quantity, as for lime that can be supplied separately for cabbage must have lime to be a success. On the other hand to prepare a soil for potatoes it is of the utmost importance to employ a manure strongly charged with salts of potash and phos- phates; but there is no need of soda or lime, for we find little of these elements in the potatoe. As in the cabbage, sulphur and soda predominates so in potatoe potash predominates, while phosphates are equal. In almost every soil, whether it be clay, mellow loam, sand, or even chalk, there are mix- tures of all the minerals required by plants, if these were not, we should see no herbage, or waste lands. But usually a lot of these minerals are dormant, or locked up in the soil, and are dis- solved out slowly, as the rain, the air, and sun, act upon them, when the cultivator stirs the soil, he opens, or exposes fresh surfaces, to the atmos- phere. Suppose we grow cabbage, procoli, or cauliflower, on the same piece of ground, for a number of years, and not supply the ground with manure, the result would be that we should find the crop fail through the absence of sulphur, soda, potash, phosphates and lime. Now instead of growing the same crop, year after year, we change the crop, taking care not to plant what will take from the soil the same mineral, but plant what requires a different mineral. Now, suppose we have been cropping out ground with cabbage and other surface rooting plants until the soil begins to fail, even then we might obtain from it a good crop of parsnips or carrots, for the simple reason that these vegetables send their roots down to the sub- soil, where the roots of the cabbage never reach. The parsnip obtains its mineral food in an exhausted soil, simply by sending down its roots to a portion of the ground that has not been exhausted by other crops. A rotation of crops implies both a chemical and a mechanical alternation of mineral supply in the soil, which is mainly brought about by placing top roots where surface roots have been. The cropping of a vegetable garden ought to be so arranged that no two crops of the same nature succeed one another. The two most exhausting vegetables grown are cabbages and potatoes, so these two should never follow one another. The best crops to follow cabbage and potatoes are peas, lettuce, spinach, celery, beans, &c., because they are on the ground only for a short time. The best plan is to mark off the garden into plots or parts. Having divided our garden, say into three parts, No. 1 should be planted with short lived crops, such as peas, beans, scarlet runners or French beans; No. 2, with top roots, such as beet, carrots, parsnips and salsify; No. 3, with potatoes, onions, leeks or turnips. In the following year No. 2 should be cropped with No. 1; No. 3 with No. 2; and No. 1 with No. 3. Always give the ground intended for onions a good dressing of farmyard manure. Onions object very much to rank manure, they like good living, but at the same time the soil must be sweet. Stagnant moisture is deadly to this plant. If the onion bed has been well looked after, all that will be required to set it in readiness for the cabbage is to give the ground a dressing of lime, forking it lightly into the ground. He did'nt advise the ground intended for spring cabbage, to be too loose, or the plants will get too sappy, and should a sharp frost come on it will kill off a lot of them. He liked the ground firm in the spring, when all danger of hard frosts is past, then fork and hoe your cabbages as often as you like. In the following summer peas should be planted on the ground after cabbages are cleared off. By so doing the ground is occupied all the year round, but with different crops. The same again with ground where parsnips or carrots have been grown, you can plant with winter spinach. Clear this off in the spring, and plant with beans, cauliflowers, or brusselsprouts. To the gardener the chemistry of garden crops is a matter of great importance, because he must make the land capable of growing crops whether the ground is suitable or not. Should the soil be sandy, and if he cannot take much out of it, he can put a lot into it.
TALSARN. THE MID-AERON PAXTON SOCIETY.—At a meet- ing of this Society on Wednesday evening week it was unanimously passed to purchase 300 flower pots for distribution in the elementary schools, and to give a series of prizes for the best cultivation of plants. Prizes will be offered in the first instance, to each school separately and afterwards a good prize will be offered for competition between the several schools. It was also resolved that sixpenee out of every sbiiling subscribed by the members should be devoted to the purchase of roots, plants, and seed for distribution amongst the members. The Society is in a flourishing condition. It has already about 50 members, and it is confidently ex- pressed that the number will soon reach 100.
