DINAS MAWDDWY. THE "WELSH GAZETTE" is on sale every Thursday morning at Mr Brees', grocer and draper, Minllin. CARADOC FIELD CLUB.—This famous club, which has its headquarters at Shrewsbury, will visit Dinas Mawddwy on May 11th., and remain a week in this beautiful and romantic locality. The members will put up at the Buckley Arms Hotel, and amongst the places to be visited are Machynlleth, and the slate quarries at Minllin, while botanical and fishing excursions have also been organised. BI-MONTHLY MEETINGS. The Calvinistic Methodist .Union of Sunday Schools for Machynlleth and district held its bi-monthly meet- ing on Sunday last at Blaencowaril* Although situated at the furthest end of the district and being difficult of access, a good:number of delegates werepresent. Inthe morning at 10 Mr Jo hn Parry, Aberangell, read an instructive paper on the read- ing and study of the scriptures, which was followed by a discussion. Mr Evan Evans, builder, Cemmes, presided. In the afternoon the infants and juuior classes were catechised by Mr Evan Evans, and in the evening the adults on the 1st chapter of the Gospel of St. John, by Mr Richard Rees, J.P., Machynlleth. The celebrated choir of Perthyfelin, assisted in the singing throughout the day. DAIRY CLASSES.—Residents of Dinas Mawddwy and district feel that an injustice was done them at the last meeting of the County Governing Body, at which it was stated that this was one of the places where the dairy classes organised by that body was believed to have been a failure last year. On the contrary, it is questionable whether more successful classes were held in any other part of county. The difficulty experienced here was not the scarcity of pupils but the rejection of a great number through lack of accommodation. One of the pupils obtained a scholarship which enabled her to enter for the short course at the University at Aberystwyth, and others would have "availed themselves of a similar opportunity had additional scholarships been offered. The success of the classes at Dinas Mawddwy are due principally to two gentlemen, viz., Mr J. H. Bullock and Mr E. H. Davies, who undertook the entire responsibility of the working of the classes, and made arrangements for the supply of the necessary quantity of cream, etc. The County Governing Body may rest assured that if the classes were held here again this year I they '.vill be taken up with avidity by the wives and mghters of farmers residing in the neigh- bou; od, and the services of the two gentlemen nanv I will be available as an energetic local committee. URBAN DISTRICT COUNCIL. The adjourned meeting of the Mallwyd Urban District Council was held on Friday evening last at the Board School, Minllin, when there were present Mr E. H. Davies, J.P. (chairman), Messrs. John Davies, J. H. Bullock, Robert Davies, Lewis Jones, and Thomas Davies, with J. Rowlands (clerk), and D. Philip Jones (assistant clerk). CHEAP TICKETi. As the result of discussions at previous meetings, the Council now decided, on the proposition of Mr J. H. Bullock, seconded by Mr J. Davies, to write to the Mawddwy Railway Company and the Cam- brian Railways Company asking them to issue cheap day return tickets during the summer months to Machynlleth, Aberystwyth, and other resorts along the coast, and during the winter months on market and fair days to Machynlleth. I THE NEW WATERWORKS. The Engineer's certificate for E20 in favour of the contractor of the waterworks was produced and passed for payment. The correspondence between the contractor and engineer regarding the waterworks was read, and gave rise to a lengthy discussion. Ultimately, the Council decided to leave the whole matter in the hands of the engineer for settlement. OUTSTANDING RATES. The Rate Collector was instructed to take legal pro- ceedings to recover all outstanding arrears of the general district rate. ALTERATION OF FAIRS. A discussion took place as to the advisability of establishing a new fair or changing the dates of the present fairs. It was pointed out that the present fairs were inconvenient, and did not suit the country people. No definite decision was arrived at, and the matter was deferred to the next meeting. ESTIMATE. The Clerk produced an estimate of receipts and expenditure for the ensuing year, but as certain items necessary to be included are pending, it was resolved that the adoption of the estimate be deferred for a month. RAILWAY FACILITIES The question of securing a more convenient train from Machynlleth to Dinas Mawddwy was again brought forward. The evening train now leaves at 6-30, and what is required is a train leaving an hour or an hour and a half earlier. The Clerk stated he had written to the Cambrian Railways Company asking whether they could effect a change, and had received a reply to the effect that the matter would be considered.
