BUSINESS ADDRESSES. "VV'I.V't.r.r.V' Ipswich may be described as the birthplace of Chemical Manures" JOSEPH FISON & Co., MANDFACTCEEBS OF I^SLNJSULPHURIC ACID AND CHEMICAL V^ATU^I MANURES. I {/I (One of the Oldest Firms in the Trade.) .{: IPSWICH, BRAMFORD, PLYMOUTH, POOLE, BIDEFORD, SWANSEA, AND HULL. A Pamphlet withrfull particulars of these celebrated Manures may be obtained of any of the Agents of the Firm, or (post free) from the Head Offices. Messrg. JOSEPH FISON & Co., having established a Depot at Swansea, are now prepared to deliver their Manures, carriage paid, at any Railway Station in South Wales and the neighbouring counties. The Corn Manures are designed especially for thet roduction of fine quality combined with a large yield, in which respect they excel other well known fertilisers, and samples of corn grown with these manures have fetched the highest market prices in past seasons. The Root Manures are designed, not only to give the young plants a good start, but to support them through every stage of their growth. Attention is particularly drawn to these points as some manures are only partial in their action, and, though forcing at first, fail to bring the crops to perfection. Purchasers are requested to give their orders to the nearest Agent, (ilr, if there be no Agent in the neighbourhood, they can be supplied direct from the Firm at list prices. Messrs. Joseph Fison & Co. are prepared to appoint direct Agents at places in which they are not at present represented, and gentlemen of position and responsibility, who may be disposed to undertake such agencies, are requested to apply by letter to the Head Offices. A few districts only now remain unoccupied, and early application for agencies in such districts is particularly requested. Reference to a Bank or a Wholesale Firm of good standing is expected before opening an account. HEAD OFFICES: EASTERN UNION MILLS, IPSWICH. SELLING OFF SELLING OFF GREAT BARGAINS IN DRAPERY GOODS!

WYNNE, Esq., of Peniarth, and never before published. Printed in quarto, on thick hand-made paper, old-faced type.

A copy sent post free to any address in Great Britain or America on receipt of Twenty-one Shillings, by WOODALL and VENABLES, Publishers, Oswestry. From the Daily Nevis, Jan. 22nd, 1879. The thanks of antiquaries and historical students are due to Mr. Askew Roberts, of Oswestry, for his handsome reprint, with many valuable additions (Oswestry: Woodall and Venables), of the old memoir of the Gwydir Family, written by Sir John Wynne in the time of James II., and first published in 1770. This narrative comprises the only known account of the state of society in North Wales in the fifteenth and the earlier part of the sixteenth centuries and its little incidental sketches of the wild, lawless condition of the country, and of the feuds of the different families who in certain districts were always contending for mastery, are curiously significant. The volume is accompanied by pedigrees, and by several interesting old portraits and views reproduced in facsimile. From the Chester Chronicle, Feb. 1. The enterprising proprietors of the Oswestry Admrtizcr have ust published, in a handsomely-bound volume, a history of the Gwydir family. The work, which bears every trace of careful compilation, is dedicated as followsTo the Right Hon. Clementina Elizabeth (in her own right) Baroness Willoughby de Eresby, the representative of the old Gwydir stock, and the owner of the estate, the fourteenth who has borne that ancient barony, this edition of the History of the Gwydir Family is, by permission, respectfully dedicated.' The editor—the author of the popular Gossiping Guide to Walesa- acknowledges with gratitude that this edition of the Gwydir history,—the fourth, the first having been published as early as 1770-oweK its existence to the labours of W. W. E. Wynne, Esq., of Peniarth, who placed his copy' at the disposal of Mr. Askew Roberts, who in turn was assisted by the Rev. Canon Williams of Rhydycroesau. No library which assumes to contain a complete collection of English and Welsh biographical literature ought to be without this valuable history of the Gwydir family." Price ls.; By Post, b. 2d.
