Geographically it is in the latter county, but owing to its close proximity to the old capital of Cardigan it is included in that county for certain purposes. Now, however, that certain drainage works are needed at St. Dogmells, the Cardigan folks are anxious to part company with Llandudach. But the matter is to be finally decided by a vote of the inhabitants, who are to declare whether they become Cardis or stand loyal to Pembroke. CARMARTHEN. Miss Mary A. Davies, a well-known Llanelly vocalist, has been awarded the John Thomas Scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music. This is one of the most desirable scholarships offered by the Academy, and entitles the holder to three years' free tuition. Miss Davies, who is a pupil of Mr. A. W. Swindell, is a contralto of great promise. The ordination services of Mr. Lewis Davies, Presbyterian College, Carmarthen, have been held at Hermon, Paincastle. The following ministers officiated :-Prof. D. E. Jones (Carmarthen), Prof. Lewis (Brecon), Rev. John Evans, B.A. (Brecon), Rev. J. Davies (Ystalyfera), Rev. J. Richards (Aber- dare), and Rev. D. Garro Jones (Llandrindod). CARNARVON. Mr. W. P. Elias, Solicitor, Bangor, late of Llanrwst, has received an appointment as Assistant Poor Law Inspector. There is a strong feeling in the Bangor Council that Dr. Price, who was defeated in the North Ward last week, should be offered the mayoralty of the city. The directors of the pier at Llandudno have arranged to have constructed in the course of the present winter a pavilion at the pierhead for the audiences who hear the band performances in the mornings, and the pierrot entertainers in the after- noons and evenings during the season. The building will have a permanent ceiling, and roof and sides formed of glass screens, which will be remov- able. The Bishop of Bangor (the Right Rev. W. H. Williams), held a visitation at Bangor Cathedral, there being an exceptionally large attendance of clergy. In the course of his address the Bishop alluded to the education controversy in Wales. They must, he said, keep their schools handed over to them in sacred trust. They could not shut their eyes to the possibility that in carrying out the work of teaching religion in the schools they might be deprived of the help of those who had hitherto been their best allies. They could not exaggerate the debt they owed to the teachers in the voluntary and board schools, which were their schools, too. Hitherto the teachers had been God-fearing persons, but it was now claimed by leading politicians that teachers in the future must not be pledged to any religious tests, and young men were being trained for school work who frankly professed that they were Agnostics. In country schools especially these teachers would do incalculable harm, and the clergy should endeavour to combat this mischief by endeavouring to see that the religious knowledge of teachers, or any prospective teachers, kept pace with their secular knowledge. DENBIGH. The Rev. Thomas Pritchard, the vicar of Rhosllanerchrugog, has been offered the living of Llanarmon-yn-Ial, vacant by the death of the Rev. Ben Evans, but he has decided not to accept the same. Mr. George IJevan has been appointed Secretary and Registration Agent to the borough of Wrexham Conservative Association, in place of Mr. Stanley D. Edisbury, resigned. Mr. Wilmer Rogers has been appointed his assistant. The Denbighshire County Council have resolved, if the rumour that the King intends to visit North Wales next year is true, to ask His Majesty to lay the foundation-stone of the new County Council and Education offices, which it is intended to erect at Ruthin.
