RURAL SANITARY AUTHORITY. A meeting of this authority was held at the Town Hall on Monday.- Presetit^Rev J. Pugh In the chair, Mr Vaugban Davies, vice-chairman, Rev J. M, Griffiths, Messrs J. Jones, Penbwlch E. James, Tanrallt, Thomas Smith, Gelmast, Wm. Jones, Bryn. owen,James Jenes ,Tyllwyd,Evan Richards,Penuwch, Hugh Hughes," jun., clerk, and Dr Jones, medical officer. BY-ECTIOI-R OF CHAIRMAN, Mr Vaughan Davies proposed, and Mr Evan James seconded, the re-election 0(1 the Rev J, Pugh to the chair. This was agreed to. The Rev J. Pugh, upon taking the chair, said it would have given him more pleasure if Mr Vaughan Davies had been put into the ehair, he being more conversant with the work and better able to carry it on. However as the authority had voted feim (Mr Pugh) to the chair he would do his best to carry out the duties of the position. ELECTION OF VICE-CHJBLS&MAN. The Rev J. M. Griffiths thought the aintliority could not do better than re-elect Mr Vaughan Davies as vice-chairman. Mr J. Jones, Penbwlch, seconded She: proposition and it was agreed to. Mr Vaughan Davies said that he was quite willing to accept the position, for he did not think anyone ought to accept the office of chairman of any body unless he could attend the meetings regularly. The returns of attendance had shown that Mir Pugh had been a very regular attendant. He was always glad to sit with Mr Pugh, and to work in the ftiture as they had worked in the past for the good of the sani- tary district. BORTH RESERVOIR. The Clerk reported that a Local Government In. spector had visited Borth, and held a court of imq^iry The proceedings did not last long, and at his ((the clerk's) request the Inspector afterwards visited the reservoir, in an unofficial capacity, when he advised that a competent engineer like Mr Thomas Roberts C.E., Portmadoc, should be requested to examine and report on the reservoir. He said that he had seen a great many bad jobs, but this was certainly one of the worst that he had ever seen.—It was pointed out that it was very desirable that something should be done at once so that Borth should have a good waten supply before visitors came there.— Mr William Jones said that the members of the parochial com- mittee were all impractical men, and he pointed out that something was now being done there and it was advisable that tim work should be stopped until they had the report of a competent man. Mr W. Jones and the Rev J. M. Griffiths promised to visit the reservoir. MEDICAL OFFICER'S REPORT. Mr Morris Jones, L.H.C.P.. medical officer of health for the district, presented the following re- port ;—" Northern division of the Runt Sanitary District of Aberystwyth. Gentlemen,—I have the honour to submit you my annual report of the sani- tary condition of the above district,of which I am the Medical Officer of Health, for the year ended 31 st December, 1886. The district comprises an area of about 70,000 acres. Its population at the last census was 10,591, which will form the basis on which the calculations in this report are niade. The number of births registered during the year is 203, being m males and 92 females, giving a birth rate of 19-1 per thousand, being a decrease of 2 5 on the preceding year. Birth rate for live years previous to 1886-— 1881, 2i5'84 1882, 24 00 1883r 2100 1884, 17-4. 1885, 21'6. The number of deaths registered during the year is 208, being 98 males aild 110 females, giv. ing a death rate of 19"6 per thousand, being an increase of 1'3 on the preceding year. Death rate of five years previous to 1886:—1881, ^1882,13'00 I&83 18"80 1884,14"8; 1885, lS'S.Themertality amongst in- fants under one year of age was 19r being a death rate of 9'3 per cent, on the births during the year. The mortality amongst old people of 60 years of age and upwards was 95, which is a considerable increase on the deaths in previous years. The number of deaths from zymotic diseases was 13, viz, 1 from measles, 4 from diphtheria,! from croup, 1 from whooping couo-h 5 from continued fevers, and 1 from erysipelas. The deaths from continued fevers occurred in the town- ships of Cyfoethybrenin and Ceulanmaesmawr, but were not in any way connected with each other. Dur- ing the autumn several cases of diphtheria occurred in the townships of Llancynfelin and CynrL-ullmawrlbut I could not trace it to any common local source, as the families lived at a considerable distance apart from on another. The number of deaths from phthisis was 3 >G being a decrease of five on the preceding year' The number of deaths from diseases of the respiratorv organs, including bronchitis, pneumonia, andpleurisv was 36, being 6 under 5 years of age and 30 above The number of deaths from heart disease was 12 being an increase of two on the preceding year. One hundred and fifteen deaths occurred from diseases which are not classified m the- tables provided by the Local Government Board, 21 having died under 5 years of age and 94 above. Sanitary work I have visited the villages in the district periodically during the year, also on occasions when my attention was drawn by the Inspector to anything specially requir- ing attending to. Notice was served on the owner and occupier of a cottage in the township of Melin- dwr as being unfit for human habitation, but the time allowed by the Board to complete the necessary work, has not yet expired. Thirteen notices were served upon persons for want of privy accommodations five complied, and the remainder had to be summoned be- fore the magistrates. Water supply On account of the case of typhoid fever in the village of Talybont, there was suspicion of the water supply being at fault on account of its surroundings. Consequently a sample of it was sent in the month of August after a drought to the county analyst for analysis, with the result proving satisfactory. A second sample was sent m November to the same person, after heavy rainfalls, with equally good results. The Sani- tary Authority has since taken such steps as to pre- vent the possibility of any pollution of the spring. Herewith I append tables marked A and B in forms supplied by the Local Government Board, which will give detailed particulars as to the deaths of different ages and the causes of death. Mr J. E. Hughes, M.B., reported as follows Gentle- men,-I beg to submit to you my annual report for the year 1886 for the liar division of the Rural Sanitary District in the Aberystwyth union. The population of the division, according to the census of 1881, and on which all the calculations herein are based, is 8,306, and its area is about 103 square m;les. For the purpose of registration it is divided into three sub districts, viz., Llmbadarn, Rheidol, and Llanrhystyd. The total number of births registered during the year was 174, of which 76 were males and 98 females. This gives one birth for 47'7 of the population, or at the rate of 20"94 per 1,000. The birth rate is less by 1'21 per 1,000 than in 1884. The sub-district of Llanbadarn, a purely agricultural dis- trict, with a population of only 1,291, is responsible for 7 out of 10 decrease in the number of births for 1886. There were 137 deaths registered during the year, under 1 year, 17; 1 year and under 5, 11 5 years and under 15, 9 15 years and under 25, 9 25 and under 60, 31; 60 years and upwards, 60; total, 137. The causes of deaths were :—Measles, unuer o years, a years ana upwards, U aipntneria, under 5 years, 0, 5 years and upwards 1; croup, under 5 years, 2, 5 years and upwards, 0 diarrhaoe and dissentery, under 5 years, 0, 5 years and upwards, 1 bronchitis, pneumonia, and pleurisy, under 5 years, 1; 5 years and upwards, 25 phthisis, under 5 years, 0, 5 years and upwards, 21; heart disease, under 5 years, 1, 5 years and upwards, 4 injuries, under five years, 0, five years and upwards, 3 all other causes, under 5 years, 16 5 years and upwards, 58; pleurisy, under 5 years, 1 5 years and upwards, 1; total under 5 years, 23; total, 5 years and upwards, 114. The above number amounts to one death in every 60'6 of the population, or at the rate of 16'49 per 1000. It is higher by 2'09 per 1,000 than it was in 1885, and 2'18 per 1,000 than in 1883, which was the lowest I have reported. I attribute the increase in the number of deaths to the severe weather we had in the spring of last year, which carried away an unusual number of aged people and persons snffering from diseases of the re- spiratory organs—included under the heads bron- chitis, pneumonia, and pleurisy. In 1885 the number of persons that were over 60 at the time of their death was only 49 during last year they amounted to 60,two of whom were very old,one being 92,and the other 96, and 37 of the others were 70. Diseases of the respiratory organs proved fatal to 26, against 16 in 1885. In the zymotic class there are two deaths due to measles and one to diphtheria. Measles proved epidemic in the parish of Llanychaiarn in the early part of the year, and two infants died. It is difficult to trace its origin. Its progress could not be checked until the school of the district was closed. A sporadic case of diphtheria occurred in the township of Llanbadarn Lower in October, and proved fatal. Sanitary Work The water brought by the Sanitary Authority in 1882 to the village of Pentrepark, in the parish of Llanychaiarn, was cut off last summer, and the work done by the board to restore it has been successful. During all my inspections in 1886, in different parts of my division, I only found one case of over-crowding or insufficient ventilation or other- wise demanding particular attention, and that was a house in the township of Llanbadarn Lower, occupied by three aged people-a man and two invalid and helpless women. And I found that the inspector of nuisances had twice visited the place, and had taken steps to have the house condemned as unfit for occu- pation. A notice to that effect was served upon the owner, and a new house has been built there.
COITNTY COURT. Friday, May 20th. Before Bishop. A MINING DISPUTE. J. R. tftiteftK v. James George Green and William Jones.—'ffei* w& claim for £ 12, being rent for a year and » Jialt f°r certain damage done to the plaintiff's fam ow.ing to mining operations carried on.

The mine was sold in 1885, and it had not been worked since. The watercourse was made yeasrs ago, and water was only turned on when the mine-wass worked. —Re-examined, witness said that from flive- to seven acres of land were occupied by the company. They could stop the water coming along the w-aisreourse. ol The effect of this water was to spoil everything when it overnowed.—The Judge nonsuited the plaiatiff. Bruckshaw v. J. W. Rogers.—This was a sls&im for £ 1 5s for keeping possession of 12, Port] anO.treet. -The defendant swore that he had paid all was due to plaintiff, who was, accordingly, nonsuited.
THE TITHE DIFFICULTY AT LLANARTH. The tithe-payers of the parishers of Llauasih, Llanina, and Cydplwyf, in Cardiganshire, have b'N'n finally given notice to pay the tithes due last Jaunary to the Vicar of Llanarth, at the residence of Mr Morgan Evans, J.P., Oakford. Mr Evans, who is-Mi Independent local preacher, has for many yeatst aesisted the agents of the vicar to collect th« tithes. but the tithe-payers have never before been requested to pay at his house, and some of them are surprised- at the change. Several meetings have been held iil the district, the tithe-owners have been petitioned; without snccess for an abatement, and majjy people express a determination not to pay any tithe at alii under the circumstances.
CAPEL BANGOR. OBITUARY.—On Thursday of last week a young Man, who was very highly respected, passed away from our midst. We refer to Mr Morgan Jones, of Glanrhydtinoeth, aged 27 years. He was the son of Mr Morgan Jones, of Yrynys, near Llanddeinol, and son-in-law of Mr Rowlands, of Carrog. The funeral took place on Tuesday, and was one of the largest that has been seen in the neighbourhood for many years. The Rev J. Rees, vicar of Capel Bangor, officiated at the late residence of the deceased, and afterwards a procession wAs formed, and when we state that it was upwards of a mile in length a fair idea of the number of people following may be obtained. It included thirty-three vehicles, each containing several people, while thirty-five others attended on horseback, beside a number of pedestrians. Nearly the whole of the farmers from the neighbourhoods of Capel Bangor and Llanddeinol were represented. It had been determined to take the remains to Llan- ddeinol for interment, and upon arrival at the parish church the Rev J. Lloyd, vicar, officiated, and the service was very solemnly performed. The late Mr Jones was a zealous and consistent member of the Church of England, and took a deep interest in the services and all that pertained thereto. As a neigh- bour he had won the goodwill of all around him, and express-tens of sympathy on his early demise were universal among those by whom he was surrounded in life. Deceased had been married about three years, and much sympathy is felt with his widow and relatives. ———

A letter was read from the Local Government Board enclosing an order allowing a relaxation or discipline in the house on the 2lst June (the Queen s Jttbilee) as the board may think fit. The consideration of the question was deferred till She next meeting. The Rev Prebendary Williams suggested that t y .-should give the inmates a dinner and an outing. h The Chairman said it seemed rather comic in the Jear 1877 that the board could not relax their rules Without an order of the Local Government Board.. Mr David Jones: Will they contribute anything towards it, I wonder ? ALTERATION OF DIET. The house committee recommended that the dietary tables should be altered so as to allow the paupers to '-ve butter instead of cheese, if they so desired and ';also that the old women should have a cup of tea at *Aree o'clock, as desired by them. Prebendary Williams said they found that a great dumber of the inmates did not like the cheese, which cost more than the butter. He pointed out *oat this hense was not a gaol, and they ought to do they could to make the old people comfortable. After some discussion, it was agreed to accept the of the committee, and the question allowing the old people tea was referred to the Medical officer. COST OF PRINTING, STATIONERY, ETC. Rev J- M- Griffiths said that a special meeting I* U*e workhouse visiting committee to consider the ^«estion raised by Mr C. M. Williams as to the cost i printing, stationery, <fcc., for the union was held on tarday, and the following was the report adopted:— ^special meeting of the workhouse visiting committee boardroom on Saturday last, at 11 a.m., to into the matter raised by Mr C. M. Williams at last board respecting the books, printing, and Tj*tionery, paid for by the board for the three years on the 29th September, 1886. There were Resent—Messrs J. Morgan, R. Hughes, and Rev J. "*• ^nffiths. Your committee found that the sum of 7s 7d had been paid for the above-mentioned printing, and stationery, distributed in the following manner, viz., for the use of the clerk, 15s 9d; master, £ 77 17s 8d relieving officers, 13s 9d assessment committee, £ 15 5s Od rela- tes' contribution, £ 2 lis 3d election of guardians, "y> 13s 3d school attendance, £ 19 lis Od medical ■*5eers, £ -t 17a Od; treasurer, £ i 14a Od registration *«ficers, t3 7s Od; vaccination officers, X6 2s 6d abstract of accounts, £ 81 8s 6d advertising, .£28 .08 lid. Papers will be laid before you showing farther how the several totals above-mentioned We been arrived at under the heads of account tbogks forms, stationery, law books, and miscellaneous. •Vouchers for the whole of the above were produced, either in the form of the original receipts or dupli- cates, and your committee found all to be correct ^ththe exception of the trifling sum of 4s, which by was charged to the funds of the union. The Su^jjttee waB informed that the stock in hand on the j, 1886, amounted to £ 50 6s Od, made the following:—With the clerk, £ 30 master, Mr John Jones, R.O., £ 3 6s Mr J. D. Jones, > -Mr J. Morgan, JZ2. If it be fair to deduct the *hove .£50 68 from the total £ 409 78 7d it will be ledaced to .£359 Is 7d, which will give an annual -vera.ge of £ 119 13s 10d expenditure on this depart- ment. Your committee refrain from volunteering an opinion as to whether the expenditure is higher than if. ought to bo. The committee, however, had the Expenses of 20 unions in this department before them for purposes of comparison. The annual average of unions was found to be £ 112. These unions •ave in the aggregate 456 parishes, or an average of 221, nearly. Aberystwyth union comprises 30 Joshes. A very heavy item in the expenditure is ~?-fc for printing the abstract of accounts, being 8s 6d for the three years, or an annual expendi- Ttte °f £ 27 2s lOd; although a large sum, it is, how- in the opinion of your cemmittee, money well whir*1* comParin £ f the expenditure of the 20 unions with our own, one very notable feature tae difference in the value of books and stationery master. Conway, with an annual 2~P6nditure of £ 200, only spends on the maBter's Gloucester £ 114 17s Id, spends on *-15 Cardiff with £ 303, master £ 35; Montgomery 'Piaster £ 8 5s Newtown £ 72 10s, master of *i!;«whereas our union, with an annual expenditure h ^'s 8Pen^s on department £ 21 19s ^berea^-111016 than one-sixth of the whole amount; ftln- ^'ie Cardiff union it is only a little over ftiiiefcp 111 ^l°ucester one-eighth, in Newtown one- ^m .^nth, and in Conway one-twentieth. Your *ttee call your attention to this fact, not wishing ji way to attach the least blame to the master. Workhouses perhaps are managed better than and books and stationery are absolutely neces- before everything can be preserved decently and order, and it should not be forgotten that this *™*ount includes cheque books, &c., £ 5 annually, and 32s annually. Your committee would further Remark that very many unions, perhaps the majority, Jo not print an abstract of accounts, which is the heaviest item but one in ours. Other unions again lwint a much less expensive abstract than ours. Your Committee consider the determination of the late to publish the abstract annually, and not half- yearly, a step in the right direction, being a saving of about .£15 annually. As all bills should come before \he finance committee, and receive the approval of the before they are paid, your committee would -press upon the said committee the great importance of. their duties, forasmuch as if the finance com- mittee performs its functions the necessity for another inquiry such as the one your committee has been •Qgaged upon will be obviated in future. The Chairman said he was sure the board were iDUch obliged to the committee for going into this Blatter, which was one of great importance, and if he Itad not been away at Carmarthen he should have zlwn present. He was not sure whether it was not better to adjourn any discussion on the report until "the guardians had an opportunity of digesting it a little bit and really going into it. Mr C. M. Williams said he was just going to sug- gest the same thing. He had statements which did tally with those made by Mr Griffiths, and he it ridiculous to compare such unions ae ^*fdi £ f and Swansea with Aberystwyth. The Rev J. M. Griffiths said he would find some Waller unions than Aberystwyth mentioned in the ftport. Mr C. M. Williams said he was going to suggest further that the relieving officers and master of the Workhouse should also furnish statements of what they deceived. The Rev J. M. Griffiths You will find every infor- nution necessary in the papers supplied to the com- :4D1ttee. Prebendary Williams suggested that the whole 'Subject should be deferred. Mr C. M. Williams wished to make his statement So as to give his averages, but The Chairman said if Mr Williams began his averages others would want to make statements. Mr C. M. Williams said he had asked Mr Hamer to eive him notice when this committee met, as having taken some interest in the matter, he wished to be present, but he received no notice. The Clerk It was a pity you did not ask me. Mr Williams I asked your clerk but the best commentary is that our expenses have been reduced -to £ 7i last year. Rev J. M. Griffiths That was owing to our having a lot of stock on hand. CLOSE OF MEETINGS. Mr David Jones (Rest) said that before leaving it "would be well that the chairman should declare when the board was over, so that they should not be led ittto a. mistake again. The Chairman said he had been there for very nearly ^9 years, and they never required a declaration of T&Ktflort. The chairman very often had to eit there to do certain things, and he had always fefdsed to take anything of importance after the general board ^"Mr C.kM. Williams said they never had their atten- tion called to the time until recently. He had raised a question at the last board with regard to the com- mittee, when he was told by Mr Morris Davies that they sat as a board. He had looked up the minute book, but found no entry there, and if they sat as a board they ought to have a minute. The Clerk said he never did make an entry of stationery ordered. Mr C. M. Williams It ought to have been done. Prebendary Williams It is not usual to do it. The Clerk said it was not usual. The account when sent in to be paid was passed by the finance committee, and then it was entered oR the minute b°Prebendary Williams: Everything that was done was done by the board, and we were clearly within our rights in ordering what we did. Mr C. M. Williams: There is no evidence that it W The Chairman thought the question could not be raised asS». As lone.as then tkree members nrpsfint the bo&rd w&s sitting. • i • Mr iofm Monraa he did not get op from h,s Jt'aud he asked Mr Morrto b. ,lgaed the order whether he was right in doing so. Mr C M. Williams said he did not blame Mr Morgan or Prebendary Williams, who had not had as much experience as he had. Rev J M Griffiths Perhaps some of us have had quite as much experience on boards as you have. I Mr C M. Williams: I know some Boards of Guardians have had too much experience of you. MV .Tnhn Morsan That is rather too personal. I think this board will have too much of you before '°Mr C. M. Williams urged that all orders should be submitted to the board in future. They had been extravagant in their printing. Mr Hughes, Cefnhendre, here made a remark in an undertone. Mr C. M. Williams: Mr Hughes If you have any- thing to say speak out. I can tell you something, and perhaps someone else will have something to say to you on my behalf. THE ABSTRACT. Mr David Owen asked for an explanation as to one item in the abstract of accounts in the parish of Llanddeinol, where a pauper was in receipt of 2s 6d weekly for twelve months, but the total carried out was only X3 2s 6d. The Clerk promised to look into the item and explain at the next meeting how the inaccuracy oc- curred. The Rev J. T. Griffiths called attention to the high rate of interest which they paid to the Poor Law Com- missioners. Various sums had been borrowed for the extension of the workhouse, for which they paid in- terest at the rate of 5 per cent, which he thought was too high at the present time. The borough of Aber- ystwyth got their money at 3i, and the same com- missioners lent money to Borth at £ 3 15s Od per cent. The Chairman said it was a matter which had struck him on many occasions when they were bor- rowing this money, and they had tried in several directions to see if they could not get it at a cheaper rate. The Clerk said no doubt it could be got cheaper now, but they would have to pay all the expens" of procuring the loan, which would come to perhaps X70 or £100. The Chairman thought it was a matter which Government ought to take cognizance of, and on one occasion he urged upon the authorities to get a clause inserted in some bill by which unions might have the power to borrow on the same terms as school boards, &c but he was told it could not be done, and the Public Works Loan Commis- sioners had no power to lend money to Boards of Guardians except on these terms. Prebendary Williams said the money might be bor- rowed from private individuals. The Chairman said that had been brought on, but they found the expense was too great. Besides which a person did not like to get his money back in small amounts, as it would be paid by them. The Rev J. T. Griffiths said the question was whether they could not save an amount by borrowing the money elsewhere. Prebendary Williams suggested that the matter I should be referred to the finance committee for con- sideration. The Rev J. T. Griffiths proposed that it be referred to this committee. This wa.s agreed to. The Chairman said they had about held their own during the past year the number of paupers had not diminished very much. They had improved a little, as they had less paupers by one than they had the year before, which showed that they had not gone back. The decrease in their expenditure had been rather considerable in one half year they had saved £ 120, and in the other half £ 60 in spite of the bad times. There was one question which he thought the finance committee ought to look into, namely,whether the relatives of lunatics, upon whom they spent n, large sum every year, ought not to contribute more than they do at the present time, and he pointed out the very small number of relatives of lunatics who contributed anything at all. In sending pauper lunatics to the asylum they were conferring a great kindness on the family in taking them away trom their home and in sending them to a place where they would have the chance of being cured and would be looked after. In the last half year, out of 44 pauper lunatics maintained by them, there were only three relatives who paid the whole of the cost-which was, perhaps, a fair average—and there were only three who paid part. He felt that the relatives of many others ought to pay a small proportion of the cost and he thought that the list ought to be gone through to see if some more could not contribute. Prebendary Williams thought the relatives' con- tribution committee would be the proper committee to take this into consideration. The Chairman agreed with Mr Williams. He also pointed out that the actual charge of pauperism upon the rates was now lower than it had ever been-less than 14d for the year, whilst the county and police rates were treading very hard upon the heels of the cost of out-relief. He had been asking Mr Hamer how it was that the average cost per head of the paupers in the house had been going up. Mr Jones (Rest) asked how it was that the police rate was going up ? The Chairman said he did not understand how it was. Mr David Jones did not see why policemen should not do their work for less than they did years ago, because everything was cheaper. The Chairman said that unfortunately he had something to do with raising the salaries of police- men ten years ago, when things were at their highest, the reason given being that they could not get respect- able men to join the force, and many of them, after being in the force for a short time, crossed over to the bordering counties. Mr William Jones thought they had nothing to do with that question now. Mr David Jones said that if all the guardians were advocates of temperance principles they could do with less police. Mr C. M. Williams We see that proved every day. Mr William Jones asked how it was that the num- bers in the house had decreased, and yet the cost per head had increased ? The Chairman said the one question answered the other, because they could keep 2410 people at a cheaper rate per head than 100. Still, he did not understand how it was that there should be a differ- ence of one penny per head per day for the last half- year the averaee cost was 7!d, while in the corres- ponding half of the previous year it was only 6 £ d. Mr Hamer said it was the average number of days spent by paupers in the house that affected it, but it was not quite clear to his (the chairman's) mind. Mr C. M. Williams said this was a very important question, and pointed out that in smaller unions than this the cost was not much more than half which it was in Aberystwyth. He quoted Corwen, where they had only 55 paupers, and the cost was only 2s 6Jd, and in Narbetli it was only 2s 6d. This matter was referred to the finance committee. Mr C. M. Williams called attention to the number of sureties of officers of the union who were either dead or insolvent, and after some conversation, the question was referred to the assessment committee. Mr C. M. Williams referred to the question of the legal expenses of the past year, amounting to £ 53 lis Id, which he thought was a very heavy item. The Clerk said it was not a heavy item, as it included the expenses of the Tanllan case, which were £ 40. That case cost the union more than .£120. Mr David Jones said the guardians ought never to carry on a law case. as he never recollected their winning one (laughter). The Chairman said they never went to law. Mr David Jones said that in this Tanllan case they were advised that they were quite right. The Clerk: But I can't win a case if it is a bad one, however well I fight. VACCINATION DISTRICTS. Mr C. M. Williams proposed that the parishes of Llanbadarn Lower and Llanychaiarn be transferred to Dr Hughes's district for vaccination purposes. This was agreed to. VISITING THE HOUSE. In reply to Mr C. M. Williams, The Chairman said that any guardian was at liberty to go over the workhouse when he pleased.

CASTELL FLEMISH. Summary of her Majesty's inspector's report on Castell Flemish board school:—"This schuol has been taught with much skill and success, and the good results in elementary subjects and in English reflect much credit upon the teacher. Great improvement has been effected in the handwriting, and the general style of the paperwork was good. The needlework was fair, and the school drill was good. It is highly desirable that the master should get more assistance than he has had during the past year, in order to do better justice to the infants, who were backward. The school well deserves a good merit grant."
NEW QUAY. During the afternoon of the 19th instant it rained heavily. and towards evening the wind began to rise, and continued to rise all through the night. Slates and tiles were blown off the roofs of many houses, and the shipping in the harbour suffered not a little. At about four on Friday morning the schooner Industry," of Aberystwyth, broke away from her moorings, and drifted considerably outside the pier, when two anchors were dropped ahead, in which con- dition she managed to ride safely through till Friday evening. Her little beat was fast astern, and one of the crew had gone into it for some purpose, when a large wave sunk the boat and threw the man into the raging sea. Happily, however, he at last, though with great difficulty, got safely on board again. Between seven and eight o'cloek in the morning the lifeboat Frank and Marion went out and brought in all the crew. Very faint hopes were entertained of saving the vessel; but in the evening, the wind having by this time abated, she was brought safely back to harbour. Her boat had previously been washed ashore, and greatly damaged.

OUNDAY SCHOOL UNION.-The annual Sunday school Cymanfa of Independents for the district of Lampeter, which comprises the Sunday schools of Lampeter, Llanfair, Llangybi, Cellan, and Bethel, was held at Soar, Lampeter, on Wednesday, the 18th instant.

The schools showed success as regards number and knowledge. A very interesting meeting of No. 636 the (Cardigan- shire) habitation of the Primrose League was held at the Town Hall on the 20th inst. The chair was occu- pied by the Countess of Lisburne in her capacity of Ruling Councillor. Capt Jones-Parry, the district agent forWessex, delivered a practical address on the origin and objects of the league. He pointed out the necessity for real work, and whilst advocating social entertainments as a means of popularizing the league, urged their not being substituted for the end. Mr Jones, of Dynant, followed in Welsh. The entertain- ment concluded with a charming selection of vocal and instrumental music. The singing of Lady Lisburne, Mrs Feltoe, and the Misses Harford was much appreciated. A cordial vote of thanks was awarded to Mrs Harford for the trouble she had taken in organizing the meeting, and three hearty cheers were given for Lady Lisburue, after which "God save the Queen" was sung. The grand council has directed Capt Jones-Parry to attend a meeting on Monday, the 30th, at Aberystwyth. BOARD OF GUARDIANS, FRIDAY, MAY 20TH.

THE ESTABLISHED PHUKCH AND WELS^ SERVICES. In the House of Lords, on Friday week, the Bishop, of Bangor moved the second reading of this Bill. The object of the Bill was to repeal a portion of Sectioac 2 of the Pluralities Acts Amendment Act, 18S5, whicbt unduly limits the power hitherto possessed by the Bishops of Ss Asaph, Baneror, Llandaff, and St David's, to require such ministrations in the Welslfc language as they think necessary in benefices within the irrespective dioceses.—The Earl of Powis moved that the Bill be read a second time that day six months.c-The Bishop of fet Aaph supported the Bill. He said it was impossible for the Church tj maintain a hold on the population in Welsh parishes with only one service in the Welsh language per day. They were anxious to correct the abuse, and to pro- vide two Welsh services in every parish where re- quired. lfthe-lawreruainedasatpreseiititwoulcldm more to disestablish the Church in Wales than any other cause they could think of.—The Earl of Car- narvon. was understood to draw the right rev. prelate's attention to the wording of the section of the Aet J which the Bill sought to amend.—The Earl of Kim- <i berley invited some expression of opinion from the j Government with regard to the Bill.—Viscount 5 Cranbrook said his impression with respect to the S Bill was certainly in its favour, but he should pro- pose that after the second reading some time should. f be given for consideration, in order to see whethec any, and, if so what, amendments ought to be intro- duced in committee.—The amendment was negatived, and the Bill was then read a second time.
