Tradesmen's Association.—A meeting of the Tradesmen's Association was convened for last Monday with regard to the tradesmen's annual holiday, but only three or four members turned up and consequently nothing was done.

We may draw the attention of our readers to the good reputation that this Picture House has gained for their expert projection and clearness of their pictures. Many visitors during the Easter Hoidays expressed the opinion that these pictures would com- pare with any show in our largest towns. The town is under a great obligation to Mr John Walters and his partner, Mr Law, for providing the town with such an up-to-date place of entertainment. Presentation to a Barmouth Young Man.—On Thursday night, at the Builth Wells Railway Station, the employees of the Cambrian Railway Company acknowledged six years faithful service of a fellow workman when they pre- sented Mr Griffith Richards, Whitfield House, Abermaw Terrace, Barmouth with a handsome time-piece and a purse of gold on the occasion of his departure from Builth Weils to Harlech.—Mr John Jones (stationmaster), in making the presentation on behalf of the em i ployees, remaiked that the credit of getting up the presentation was due to Mr W. S. Williams, who had collected the money and had carried everything to a successful issue. He was sorry to part with Mr Richards, and was able to say that during the six years he had been with them at Builth Station be bad not in any way neglected the in- terests of the Company, and had been most obliging to the tradespeople and others with whom tbeyhadto deal. Many had spoken to him about the courteous way in which they had been treated by Mr Richards, and about his readiness and willingness to go out of his way to assist the public. The number of people from the town who bad sub- scribed to the presentation was a testi- mony to the manner in which they ap- preciated the brue and faithful services of Mr Richards during his stay at Builth Wells. Personally be would miss him very much, for be was always ready to do whatever he was asked to perform. He wished him every prosperity at Harlech, and be then asked him, on be- half of the subscribers, to accept the clock and purse of gold.-Inspector David Evans observed that during the time that Mr Richards had been at Builth Wells be had been always ready and obliging. It was never too late or too early for him to look after the Com- pany's interests and to discharge his duties to all concerned. The loss that they would sustain at Builth Wells Station would prove a gain to Harlech. —Mr W. S. Williams said that he was very sorry that Mr Richards was going from Builth Wells, as they had worked together on the most friendly terms. It had been a pleasure for him to ask for subscriptions, as every one whom be had asked bad givep willingly.—Several other complimentary speeches were made, and Mr Richards, in acknowled- ging the presentation, expressed how sorry he was to leave Builth Wells, and thanked them for the kindness to him at all times.—The clock was incribed "Presented to Griffith Richards on leaving Builth Wells SLatioD1 May, 1911.
