NEWS AND OBSERVATIONS: ORIGINAL AND SELECTED. On Friday afternoon Professor SCOTT; passed through Aberystwyth on his way from Lampeter to St. Petersburg, where he will spend a part of the summer vacation. A proposal is under consideration reepect ing the lighting of Towyn and Aberdovey by electricity, at an estimated cost of between f 4,500 and £6,000. The drainage of Llanbadarn Fawr is under consideration by the Rural District Council. After many years' delay the roadside drains at Llaingawsa and Pwllhobi have been im- proved. At Monday's Rural District Council meet- Mr RICHARD JENKINS moved that the road labourers should only be employed at day work for three days per week during the summer months. Mr JENKINS would probably not care to work for seven-aod-six, or some- thing like that, for three days in each week, with the off chance of securing work during the other three days. There being only a small attendance of members the question was adjourned. The sonth doorway of Llanbadarn Church, of which Sir GILBERT SCOTT spoke in such eulogistic terms, dates from 1260 A.D., and the date of the tall Celtic Cioss just in front of this great door is about 700 A.D. Visitors should not fail to observe these valuable relics of antiquity. When the Cambrian Archaeo- logical Association visited this town two years ago to celebrate the Jubilee of the starting of that Society-a society which has done so much to preserve the antiquarian monuments of Wales, they visited LIanbadarn Church and were much interested in the south doorway and the cross. Photographs and impressions were taken, and measurements of cross. sections, Ac. Amongst others Mr ROBERT WILLIAMS, F.R.I.B.A., architect, of Lee, London, took copies which subsequently ap- peared in The Builder."
