COMING-OF-AGE FESTIVI- TIES. MR. GLYN MORTON EVASS. OF LLANGENNECH PARK, ATTAINS HIS MAJORITY. I I MR. &LYN MORTON EYANS. On Tuesday Mr. Glyn Morton Evans, the son and^ heir of Mr. David Evans and Mrs. Evans, Liangennech Park, Llanelly, attained his twenty-nrst year. The event was signalled by much rejoiomgs on the estate and in the adjacent village of Llangenneeh, which is indeed, on tho estate. The old family mansion is about, four miles from the town of Llanelly and came. with the entire landed property' which is very considerable, into the possession of the present owner by purchase, some few years ago The palace is a building after the de"ig,l, wit',i a border of jNcaman design, with a border of 'an«llated turrets running along the line of the junction of the wall and the lower part of the roof. Thus from a distance, the entire building has thj appearance of a fortified place. Surrounding the old mansion is a fine park of a very fertile character, and on Tuesoay wore its most verdant hue. The situation is a, very fine one. It is stationed on a gentle eminence ^P'^jg downwards in every direction and from the house many miles of pleasant country are in view in every direction In tue immediate locality of the mansion are sequestered wooded glades, running b'' a ™r of,<Sew Which abundance of trout and other fish are caught. The ancient ,!ts surroundings are highly attirat-tive, and, beimgeasily accessible from thl thriving and enengetK' town of Llanelly" are ail that can be desired bv one who des re« to unute a life of enei^y with" the mcsi defST" f ITv 0,1 1Way the day %L beautifuhy hue, the sun shining brilliantfv. but a coohng 'breeze blowing from the sea a few TrY inhabitants of the large vil- lage of Llangenneeh. which is almost largo enough to -be designated a town, displayed bmting in many places m honour of the occa- s-ion. riiin ropes crowed the streets from the were Lv T^e w ere gaj, ,]a^ of every imaginable colour. On the ei ntro of one of the ropes an enthusiastic, warmsheartpd old Welsh dame, a tenant if the estate, had suspended her riewly-eomp^ted bed quilt of ooloured print patches. On its centre described a per- COOt. circle, and the entire design of the pattern did credit to the artistic i-kiil of th.e Man who had made it. In the green pak in front of t-lfe mansion stoo-i severa., tine pavilions for the accomimodation of the numerous visitors, who flocked in largt numbers, many in their carriages and multi- tud-As on foot, who c-aane to testify their regard for the voun-g son *hd heir and his jiarente anH hus sisters In the grounds were a.1\io attrac- tions for the young, such as merry-go-rounds, a shooting gallery, &e. The yteajn engine of the merry-go round blew tihe musma 1 pipes instead at tjMHa m«tiumt>iits awakening their inelodiiB by hiam'aii brecntiii. Tliig seems to have been regained as an agreeable chaise i.[tert!li3 recent mu^ioa.1 deluge at the greait B^teddfod m the neighbouring town.
