SIR THEODORE MARTIN'S ADVICE, COMPLIMENTS LLANGOLLEN AUTHORITIES AND INDICATES DEFECTS. Prior to leaving Llangolleu on Saturday, at the termination of his summer period of residence at Bryntysilio, on his return to London, Sir Theodore Martin, in conversation with a correspondent, said he had been much impressed during recent years by the steady growth in the improvements made in Llangollen, which was a very different place to-day from what it was when he first knew it very many years ago. He was particularly struck by the great change for the better that had been made in the Town Hall. He was able to compare its acoustic properties in its improved form with those that existed in the past, when the late Lady Martin and other notable elocutionists appeared on the stage there. Apart from the structural im- provements, which are of so striking a character as to earn for the Urban District Council the loud praisa of this distinguished authority, the altera- tions that have so admirably adapted it for public meetings, and all gatherings, particularly im- pressed him. Then the laying out of the town, the lighting of tlia streets, and the provision of a constant water supply, even though something might still be desirable in some of these directions, and would, doubtless, be achieved in course of time, were very pleasant to contemplate. There were, however, many directions in which attention might still be profitably turned and, as an instanee of what ha meact, he alluded to the pathway leading up from tha Abbey-road to the walk along the Shropshire Ulrica Canal at Borwyn, which he described aa absolutely the most beautiful walk in England, Sir Theodore said he had on many occasions complained of the condition in which this footpath was kept. With its treacherous surface it was far from safe for elderly people to traverse and the expenditure of a very few pounds would greatly improve matters. This was the kind of improvement which might be effected, even at times when high rates were complained of, with- out serious embarrassment and wliich, when carried out, would add very materially to the attractive- ness of the place so far as visitors and residents were concerned,
