LLANRHYSTYD. U. D. SCHOOL BOAED.—At the ordinary meet- ing of the above, at Bryn Herbert School, there were presentMessrs D. J. Davies (chairman), Ed. Edwards (vice-chairman), John Jones (treasurer), Owen Jones, David Evans, and Captain Hughes. In the absence of the clerk, the master of Bryn Herbert school officiated. The attendance officer was also present. Th* minutes of the last meeting were read and signed, after which the first thing that came under notice was a letter from the clerk of the Llanbantffraid U. D. School Board with re- spect to a child said to be illegally employed. It was decided to write for further particulars before taking action in the matter. Cheques were drawn for the Public Works Loan Commissioners and all the masters up to date, after which the board went through the melancholy lists of absentees, and de- cided to follow up their previous energetic action by giving a few attendance orders, and less than a dozen summonses. It was reported that most of those parents recently fined still kept their children at home. With such stubbornness and iguorance there is only one course to be taken, but it is very hard for parents to believe that the board, having been so lenient for such a long time, will suddenly take extreme measures. L.avø was asked by a parent for the occasional services of a scholar, but it was at once refused, after which the board rose. LLANGRA.NOG. SCHOOL EXAMINA.TION.-The annual examination for the distribution of prizes given by Mrs Jordan, of Pigeonsford, to the scholars of the elementary school of the above parish, was held last week. The children were examined by the Rev J. Griffiths, rector of the parish. The following scholars re- ceived valuable books for their proficiency in read ing, spelling, and English :-First class, David Davies, Dolmeddyg, obtained the first prize, and Thomas O. Jones, Lower Mill, the 2nd in the second class, David Davies, Abermarlaig, 1st, and T. Jenkins, Cnwcgwyn, 2nd; third class, Rachel Owens, Trecegin, 1st, and James Evans, Rhydnanty, 2nd; fourth class, Jane Owens, Trecegin; fifth class, Ellen Evans, Ffynonllefrith; sixth class, Johnny Davies, New Inn. I. is worthy of remark that this annual gift of costly and useful books re- flects creditably on the wonted kindness of Mrs Jordan, besides being a source of mental refinement to the poor children whom she endeavours to ele- vate. After the distribution a hearty vote of thanks was given by the master, on behalf of the scholarii, to Mrs Jordan, the Rev J. and Mrs Griffiths.
