MARRIAGE OF MR SAM THOMPSON. PRETTY CEREMONY AT MAESTEILO. Mr Sam Thompson, who contested West Den- bighdÙe in the Unionist interest at the last geneiaJ election, was married on Wednesday last week to Miss Jenny Thomas, daughter of Mr and MRS Thomas, Cefn-rhiwlos, LLandilo, Cannartho ;shire. The ceremony, which excited oonridterab'E interest in the locality, took place at St. John's Church, Maeateilo, an old world village full of interesting memories, not far from Lla.ndilo, the home of the Earls of Dynevor The thoroughfare en route from the bride's home to the church was lined] with well-wishers, while SAGS and bunting fluttered1 from every window, and a liberal uso of flowers heightened the effect. The bride was attended by her sister. Miss May Thomas, and, was given away by her brother, Mr James Thomas. The gToom was waited upon by his half-brother, Mr W. L. Ellis, and the Rev. J. Silas Evans, of LFanrhaiadr-yn- Mochnant. A crowded congregation attended the service conducted by the Rev. W. Jones, of Maesteilo.

PTOMAINE POISONING. THE WREXHAM EPIDEMIC. LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD'S ACTION. Dr. Williams, the medical officer of health for Wrexham and district, has just returned from London, where he had been some days in consultation with the Local Government- Board officials respecting the recent outbreak aiiie posoil,.Ill. CLf Pt?m He Ten.=rkoi to a c,orrespoi,-dent that th-2r,- ];-ad 1,,e,?,n no mo,e sensational outbreak than that at Wrexham within recollection. There had been two very noted outbreaks twenty-four and twenty-nine years ago, but these were not attend-ed with so great a fatality as that at Wrexham. The leading experts were work- ing overtime on the analysis of the suspected pies, but th.e report was not ready JET.
INQUEST OPENED ON FIFTH VICTIM. An inquest was opened at Coed Talon a village situated between Mold and Wrexham by Mr F. LI. Jones, the Flintshire coroner! on Monday evening, touching the death of Ann Williams, aged fifty-three, who died on Saturday from the effects, it is believed of ptomaine poisoning. The facts supplied to the coroner were that the deceased woman recently went to Wrexham, and on her way home purchased two pork pies. At Wrexham Station, before leaving by train, she ATE*" a portion of one of the pies, and W-u afterwards taken ill. She was attended by Dr. Bell of Pontblyddyn, and afterwards by Dr. Lunt' of Mold. The Coroner at the outs.et. stated that it would not be possible to complete the in- quiry that day, AS it would be necessary to have a post-modern examination. He there- fore proposed to adjourn the inquest for a week, after taking formal evidence of identity. Edward Williams, colliery LABOURER living at King's-p!ace, Coed Talon, stated the de- ceased was his wife, and he tendered formal evidenoo of identification. S°R?NER TBEN ^JOURNED the inquiry until Monday afternoon next.
THE POST OFFICE AND LABOUR EXCHANGES. INTERESTING EXPERIMENT AT RHYL. Early next month an experiment will prohablv be ROADIE to try tho possibilities of USIN,^ Rhyl Post Gffico as' a centre for registration purposes coirneoted with Labour Exchanges. Space will bo provided for applicants to fill in "Forms of application," "renewal slips," "REEKT. ration oards, etc. Postcards v.ill ALSO be supplied for use by employers of labour to notifv vacancies to the nearest Labour Exchange. Assistance will be given by the Post Office Counter Stall in the filling up of the various forms. The hours of attendance for registration work will H? 8.0 a.m. to 9.0 a.m., 1.0 P.^ to 2*0 p.m. andi 5.0 p.m. to 6.0 p.m. each week day Full pat:culana will be notified at tho Post Office in a few days. It is hoped that this experiment will be found USEFUL during the non-season periodi in seourinT ,mplo.vrn,eiDt for the many o,,it 11 this d,istr-,ct e-pl<)yn,ent is so dfficult to find.

COLWYN BAY NATIONAL EISTEDDFOD. MONSTRE PAVILION PRACTICALLY READY. To put up a timber and iron structure in two months, capable of accommodating 10,000 people in absolute comfort is a considerable achieve- ment, and this is what has been accomplished by the builders of the monstre National Eisteddfod Pavilion at Colwyn Bay, Messrs L. H. Wood- house and Co., contractors, Notts. The work has been carried out under the personal super- vision of Mr F. Woodhouse to the design of Messrs Darbishire and Smith, architects, Man- chester, and so far as can now be seen it should give general satisfaction. Iron roofed, the build- ing is otherwise made entirely of timber, up- wards of 300 tons of pitch pine being used. It is formed something in the shape of a huge Mal- tese cross, four wings or sections affording room for about 2000 people each. The stage, to hold 500 persons, is fixed with its back on the town so to speak, and adequate provision appears to Lave been made to ensure an uninterrupted view of the platform from all parts, the floor, which naturally slopes, being raised in an effective man- ner without in any way endangering those stand- ing upon it. The roof is between 50 and 60 feet high in the centre of tho archways, and abundant provision has been made for ventila- tion and lighting. Care has also been taken to ensure freedom of movement in and out of the building. The work has given employment to about 100 men, most of them local residents, for eight weeks. A word of warning should be given to the com- mittee with reference to the acommodation for the Press. There will be between sixty and eighty reporters in attendance throughout the f,?stival, and as there i provision for only abciit is twenty at present it would be well to see without delay to this matter.
THE ARTS AND CRAFTS EXHIBITION. A NOTEWORTHY DISPLAY. The Arts and Crafts Exhibition promoted in conjunction with the National Eisteddfod will be formally opened at the Colwyn Bay Infants' S ?,cbo??is to-irorrow (l,'riday) afteri-?oon by the Countess of Dundona!d, who will be accompanied by Lady Mostyn of Talacre and Sir T. Marchilit Williams. A "Pioneer" representative was privileged to inspect the exhibits yesterday afternoon, and was mue *li impreszed, not on!y with tlao intriri?ip value of the articles on view, but with their sii'l grcater value from an educational point of view. The two main halls and some of the ante-rooms are well filled with specimens of a deeply inter- esting and instructive character, and in cordially commending the exhibition to the best support of the community, one hopes that this endeavour to rouse that sentiment for art which undoubtedly exists though now dormant in the Welsh .ace, will result in the establishment of a permanent local home for the arts and crafts movement re- ferred to in these columns last week. There are four large cases of exhibits from the South Kensington Museum which warrant care- Íul attention. One contains magnificent examples of ancient book-binding, etc. another of metal work. arncrgst in-lj;ch so-?ic of the finest ?ll- ver and rrold art* icl(,.s, includ ng the valuable Fil- ver gi!t bell from the Kremlin, Moscow; the third some very fine specimens of Italian, Sicil- ian, English and other embroidery and the fourth a rare collection of Rockingham, New Hall, Chelsea, Derby and Worcester porcelain. If for nothing else the exhibition is worth visiting to see these beautiful things. But there are innumerable other exhibits not one whit less interesting. For instance, the Welsh National Museum have sent the unique Celtic hell recently purchased at Madiyn Carrie- one of^the very few of the type extant. The Welsh Museum of Arts and Antiquities, Cardiff, show a splendid collection of Nantgarw an 3 Swansea poreclain. which have been carefully ar- ranged to show the stybs of the different periods PRICELESS COLLECTION OF MISSALS. Amongst the numerous exceedingly interesting miscellaneous exhibits chief place must be given to the practically priceless-priceless because they are quite irreplaceable—collection of missals from S;r P ers and Lady Mostyn of Talacre. y Patrons of th(, exhibition vvould Oo to care.- fuliv ips,,)ect the" remarkable spec,mens of hand- pri,iting, taking particular notice of the intrl*ea??y of the work, and the beauty of the colouring. The binding of the volumes is also remarkably beautiful. In the same case is shown the gold harp presented to Sir Edward Mostyn on the oc- casion of the 1828 National Eisteddfod, and a perfect specimen of a scold's bridle (used as -n.)st "Pioneer" readers are probably aware to "cor- rect" recalcitrant, over-voluble wives) shown by Lord Mostyn. An ancient British font, dug up in the district, is of unique interest. It bears an inscription not explained so far, though it is quite legible. An ingot of copper from Conovium (Cacrhun) tells of the Roman occupation. The Denbigh Corporation exhibit, amongst other things, a number of valuable old chafers, and a very fine silver cup presented to the town by Sir Hugh Mvddleton in 1616. The Chester and North Wales Archaeological Association show some splendid historic examples of native crafts, including a Celtic urn found in Penmaenmawr in 1890, and presented to the So(,i(, -y Mr C. I,. Darbisli,'re, .ty t There are at least t-.vo practically perfect spJi- mens of old spinning wheels, both of which tre fit for immediate use. Most noteworthv of the treasures exhibited by CoL Gee,, from Cacrhun, are a beautiful Irish harp, a Welsh praying chair, and a typical Welsh oak cradle. A bust of Inigo Jones, the renowned Welsh architect, who built the famous Llanrwst bridge, shows the features of that distinguished man with apparently remarkable fidelity. This exhibit has been sent by the Royal Cambrian Academy of Art from the PI as Mawr, Conway. Another notable exhibit from Conway is a portrait of Dame Penderil, who is said to have assisted Charles II. into tho oak at Boscobcl. The pic- ture is dated 1662. and is owned by Miss Dutton, of the Castle Hotel, who was recently offered a big price for it by the National Gallery authori- ties. Sir T. Marchant Williams, the eminent Weish antiquarian, shows some fine pictures, while the very valuable canvas of Carnarvon Castle by David Cox (lent by Mr C. B. Jones Mortimer) must attract great attention. Some rehcs of the CROMWELLIAN ATTACK UPON DENBIGH CASTLE include a cross bow, in an almost workable con- dition, said to have been the property of one of the Wynns, who, at the head of only" 300 Welsh- men, stoutly attacked the Protector's ht)sts- none of them, according to history, to survive the onslaught. The cross bow was dug up on the site of the battle. Another exhibit of almost priceless value is the pair of glass worn by Nelson at Trafalgar, for which a large sum of money has been refused bv its fortunate owner. Two seismographs for show- ing earth waves and tremors are placed in one of the cases with the view of displaying their delicate mechanism and teaching the uninitiated the principle upon which the scientist calculates the time, direction, and speed of earthquakes. Of the competitive side of the exhibition much that miL- ,lit be said must he withheld for lack cf space, but it might be stated that the expert re- presenting the South Kensington Museum at the exhibition emphatically decTanes he has never seen a collection comparable with them at any similar exhibition, though his experience is a wide one. He is loud in his praises of the metal work and some of the paintings.
CHANGE OF ADJUDICATOR. The Rev. Canon Davies, rector cf Gaerwen, known in baTdLo circles as Dyfrig, has, owimg to the unsatisfactory condition of his health, informed tho committee of the Colwyn Bay National Eist-oddiod that he will bo unablo to act a3 adjudioator in the recitation competi- tion's and the committee have appointed Deiniol 1 Fychan, the well-known North Wales elocu- tionist, to take Dyfrig's place.

CORRESPONDENCE. MOTORING IN COLWY.V BAY. (To the Editor of the "Pioneer.") Sir.-I should be. gled to how whether Col- wyn Bay has any rules regarding motoring, and if so why they are not enforced. My special reason for making there enquiries is this. This afternoon (Sunday) while my husband, who is an invalid, was crossing Abergele read close to our house, in his wbeclhair, he was run into by a motor car, and thrown out of his chair, only the prcacnce of mind of his atteintfant, who swerved the chair to one. side, avoiding what might well be a. fatal accident. Mr de Veer is a cripple, and the shock has quite upset him, and cue of his fingers are cut- and hurt.. The motor came upon them without any warning until it was too late, and it was run.iing at high speed. If Colwyn Bay has no rules it is high time that they should have. It is a disgrace to any town to allow sucil spoed:ing as we tee here daily.—I am, etc., (Mrs) EMMIE DE VEER. Pecimorlan, Hesketh-road, Old Colwyn. Sunday, Aug. 21.
