Talybont. Sheep Dog Trials.- The annual sheep dog trials were held at Llanbedr on Thursday, Feb. 8th. The ground was covered with snow, which might have been a slight disadvantage to some of the dogs, and which certainly made it uncom- fortable for the onlookers. The number of entries was very large, but the quality of the work done was on the whole below the average of previous years, many of the dogs failing to get the sheep from the first field in the allotted time. The trials were held under the patronage of several influential gentlemen, and were arranged by a committee, of whom Mr H. Davies, Gorswen, was chairman, Mr W. Roberts, Maes Castell, vice-chairman, and Mr Isaac Jones, Cefn, secretary. Messfs T. Owen, Melai; Tom the Gill, Capel Curig; and T. Jones, Rowlyn, acted as judges. The following is a list of awards:;âClass i (open to the world): 1st prize, ^'5; 2nd, £ 3 10s; 3rd, £ 1 10s; 4th, 15s: i, "Carlo," Mr Wm. Jones, Plas Nant, Llangwm, Corwen; 2, "Handy," Mr O. F.

Jones, Plas Nant, Llangwm. Mr T. J. Jones, Maen y Bardd, carried away the teapot. About mid-dav a doctor's horse caused a little diver- sion by refusing to go along the road, preferring to leap the hedge and galloping over the field. After this was repeated, the rider, with the help of bystanders, managed to induce the refractory steed to pursue its legitimate course. â¦
