LAMPETER. WHITSUN FAIR.-The annual Whitsun fair wsff held at Lampeter on Wednesday, the 27th ult., and ail the day was comparatively mild, it was very largely attended. The striking feature was the vast num- ber of young people present; indeed the fair is prac- tically knswn of late as Ffair y Bobl Ieuainc the young people's fair. There was a good number of dealers here, and a large number of cattle changed- hands. The demand for horses and pigs, however, was not so great, and the prices offered were very low.

SUICIDE.-This district was thrown into greafr excitement on Saturday evening, by the news thalk David Howells, Eskeringlis Farm, had committed suicide, by hanging. It appears that the deceased had been uawell for some time, and that he was at times in a very depressed state of mind. He got npf as usual on Saturday morning, and at about tell o'clock he left the house, saying that he was going t0t an adjoining field te cut some furze. Some three hours after—about one p.m.—the servant girl had occasion to go to the haydoft, and there the deceased was discovered hanging from one of the beams, by scarf. The girl, though greatly startled,cut the body down at once, but it was found that life was extinct, the body being cold and stiff, the deceased having evidently committed the act directly he left thes house. The coroner (Dr J. Rowland, Garth) held all inquest on Tuesday evening, the verdict returned by the jury being, that deceased committed suicide whilsf; in a state of temporary insanity. The funeral topic s place on Wednesday morning, the body being in- terred at the Capelgroes graveyard. The Rev Thoff- Thomas officiated.
