At Dowlais Steel Works, Merthyr, on Satur- day two stokers, riding on an engine which collided with some trucks, were killed on the spot. Mr R. Gordon Roberts, a member of the Carnarvon Town Council, has volunteered for the front with the Pembrokeshire Yeomanry. Mrs Cornwallis West, who has been staying with her daughter, Princess Henry of Pless, at Fiirtetistein, in Germany, returned to England on Monday. The Montgomeryshire equipment fund now amounts to £ "2,030. Sir Watkin Wynn has been ordered to raise 25 additional men as casuality reserves. On Monday afternoon the funeral of the late, Mr J. E. Thomas, civil engineer and surveyor, took place in the Wrexham Borough Cemetery, while a snowstorm raged. The Vicar of Wrexham, the Rev.

The Welsh Gazette" states Many of the lead mines in North. Cardiganshire have recently been purchased by syndicates from Belgium, who are now working them successfully. A disastrous fire broke out in the outbuildings of Bodeiliog Farm, near Denbigh, on Thursday evening last. The Fire Brigade, under Captain R. W. Lloyd, were soon on the scene, and succeeded in saving part of one building and six stacks of corn and hay, which were in the immediate vicinity. Three valuable young heifers were, however, burnt to death, and it is estimated that the loss, which is not covered by insurance, is about £ 1,000. The fire was caused by the upsetting of a paraffin lamp. This, it seems, had been placed inside the shippon behind the door, whilst the tenant was feeding the cattle. The servant girl rushed into the building, and in opening the door, knocked the lamp over. Lord and Lady Trevor, of Brynkilalt, have returned to London from their historic residence at Brynkinalt, Chirk. ââ The Bishop of Bangor was to have held his primary visitation the other day, but was prevented by illness. The body of a man, aged about 80 years, was discovered in a stream at Tyddyn Oliver Farm, near Bodorgan, on Tuesday morning. The body had been evidently some days in the water, as the greater part of the face was eaten away by rats. There was nothing by way of identification. The body was removed to Trefdraeth Church. Last week the Archdruid of Wales, the Rev Rowland Williams (Hwfa Mon), was taken seriously ill at Caergwrle, where he was conducting special preaching services, and it was with much difficulty that he travelled home to Llangollen. Dr William Jones, of Ruabon, was telegraphed for as soon s the Archdruid reached Llangollen, and upon his arrival there he found that Hwfa Mon was suffer- ing from congestion of the lungs. He is now making satisfactory progress towards recovery. His medical attendant has ordered perfect quiet- ness and rest for some time.
