MOTHVEY NATIONAL SCHOOL REPORT. The report of H.M/s Inspector in connec- tion with the Mothvey National School has just been received. It certifies that the work throughout the school shows that the teaching is thorough and intelligent. The records of the scholars' progress had been well kent. Some chairs should be nrovided. and the walls require colouring." Theachool has been excused from examination for the coming year. and has been awarded the high- est want. We congratulate Mr. G. H. Hovle1 (the headmaster) on the manner in which his energetic scho^^ic efforts have been so suo- cessfully rewarded. CRICKET NOTES. Cricket is once more in full swing here. The Collegians have played two matches and unfortunately have been defeated on each occasion. Wp trnrt. however, there is better luck in store for them. What the town eleven will be like is at present a mystery, as we have not yet had an exhibition of their prowess. Undoubtedly uome of last year's players will be again available, and these with the addition ot some new blood should make things hum ior some of our South W f\ les teams. t., LLANDOVERY COLLEGE v. ST. DAVID'S COLLEGE. LAMPETER. CRUSHING DEFEAT FOR THE LLANDOVERIANS. Elevens representing these rival colleges .met at Llandovery on Saturday last, in ideal cricket weather. The visitors won the toss, and elected to go in first to the wickets. Wm. Roberts and Alcwyn Jones (of football fame) opened the innings, and immediately pun- ished the bowling severely. Alcwyn Jones hit vigorously, but with the total at 36, Roberts' "sticks were disturbed by C. M. Davies. The remaining batsmen, without ex- ception, treated the home trundling roost mercilessly, and thanks to brilliant batting by AtcWIn Jones, LI. Griffiths, T. Price, W, T. Phillips, and T. P. Btea, the admirable flcore of 201 runs was registered for the loss of only 9 wickets, when the visiting captain declared their innings at a close. The Llan- doveri&ns followed but gave a most feeble display. Rees' fast deliveries being too good for them. Lockyer and Green were the only batsmen to get into double figures, lhe innings closed for 45 runs, the Lamp inna thus gaining an easy win by 156 runs. Appended are the respective scores:- 8t.
