TREGARON Obituary.—The death took place on Satur- day of one of the oldest residents of the parish of Caron Lower in the person of Mrs. Rich- ards, widow of Mr. Thomas Richards, Tyhen, who formerly lived at Ynysybont, Swydd- ffynon, and Penygraig, Tregaron, Mrs iruciiards was eiga«.y-iour ye<l..s of age aiitl until quite lately enjoyed good health. It m not very long since the old lady was seen with a basket of flowers on her arm at Tregaron. She leaves very few behind who have lived so long, but there are a few who have seen longer days. Her old neighbour, Mr. David Richards, late of Blaenyresger, is about ninety-six. The remains of Mrs. Richards were buried on Thursday (yesterday) at the Bwlchgwynt C.M. Chapel Burial Ground where her husband was also interred some years ago. Floods. The continuous heavy rain of Sunday night and Monday morning has caused very heavy floods in the two rivers, both of which have overflowed their banks, covering enormous tracts of land. Passengers by Monday's trains on the M. and M. had a grand sight on the Tregaron Bog and the extensive lowland on each side of the river Tivy from Strata Florida Station down. The volume of water, however, is not to be compared with the great floods of last year. Collapse of Temporary Bridge.—The river Brenig, which runs through the middle of the town was also greatly swollen, although it did not burst out and take its course all over the lower parts of the town as it has so often done in the past. The temporary bridge thrown across the river during the construc- tion of a new bridge collapsed early on Monday morning and caused great inconvenience to tradesmen, especially those who reside on the Square side of the river. All vehicular traffic betwen the two sides of the river has been blocked, for the, river cannot be crossed at any place until this temporary structure is rebuilt. The Doldre footbridge was the only way for pedestrians to cross from one side to the other on Monday, but on Tuesday, some planks of timber had been placed across the stream. Horses, cattle, and a large num- ber of sheep had to be taken across over the footbridge throughout Monday and Tuesday. It is to be regretted that the new bridge was not put up when the condition of the river was favourable for its construction. We under- stand that the iron bridge has at last arrived at Tregaron and will be put up without any further delay. Several persons had a narrow escape from being thrown into the flood when the temporary bridge went down on Monday, having only just cleared the bridge when it gave way. Rent Audit.—A representative of the Trus- tees of the Tregaron (Sunny Hill) Estate sat at the Talbot Hotel on Tuesday, the 11th inst.. to receive rents due from the tenants in March 25th last. The local tenants feel very grateful to Messrs. Peacock for delaying the for several yet ars on such occasions. The rent audit for upwards of six months and thus enabling many of them to more conveniently meet their obligations. Tn the afternoon, they were all provided with a good dinner, as usual, at the, Long Room of the Talbot Hotel. Thanksgiving.—The usual harvest thanks- giving services were held at the Bwlchygwynt C.M. Chapel on Friday last. when the con- gregations were about the largest seen here first meeting was held at ten a.m. and was a service of prayers. In the evening, a power- ful sermon was preached at the same place by the Rev. Owen Evans, D.D.. Liverpool, one of the best known Welsh Congregational ministers of the period, who is better known as Dr. Evans, of Fetter-lane. London, of which church he was pastor for many years. Dr. Evans is also well known to Welsh readers as an author of several standard books. Mr. Evans had a large and appreciative congrega- tion at Tregaron. In the course of his in- troductory remarks, he refered to the fact that he was the only Welshman that had the hon- our of speaking at the funeral of the late Mr Henry Richard, M.P. Parish Council.—A meeting of the Caron Lower Parish Council, was held on Friday evening, October 14th, when the following members were present:—Messrs. Dd Thomas, Cambrian House, chairman; John Evans, Pen- tre-isaf; H. W. Jones, Oxford House; E. [saao Davies, Pantsheriff; John Jones, Waen- Fawr; P. W.

Isaac Davies re- sorted that the members of the Committee lad met at Esgermaen as directed by the Council, and had carefully inspected the foot- 1. „ l- 1 J.. l t u 1 _1 -u -.L _1 ml patn stated, to have been obstructed, lhey found that the hedges over which the path passed required putting in better condition before they recommended the Council to go to the expense of putting up steps for pedes- trians to go over them. They were of opinion that such steps would be very desirable for the convenience of those passing over the path. but under the prevailing conditions it would be very difficult to do anything. Mr. Ben Davies stated that the hedges had been satis- factorily repaired since the place was visited by the Committee.—It was unanimously agreed that the matter be left to the discretion of the Committee, the Council having previously given them authority to do what they thought necessary.—The Public Lamps Committee were instructed to make inquiries with reference to a bill sent in by a local tradesman for re- paring some of thief lamps' before they were put up for the season. It appeared that the Committee had not been consulted in tho matter and knew nothing of what had been done.—Other bills were passed and cheques signed in payment thereof. I BOARD OF GUARDIANS, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 18TII.—Present Mr David Davies, chairman Evan Lloyd.

Reduction.—A woman from Ffair Rhos appeared before the Guardians and applied for a reduction in the order of Is 6d which had been imposed upon her husband for the maintenance of his mother. Her husband, who was working in South Wales, had only been able to work two or three turns a week. He had to pay 14s per week for lodgings. The order had been increased from Is to Is 6d through the spirit of revenge which prevailed, owing to some personal dispute.—Mr Howells pro- posea that the order should be reduced to Is per week, which was agreed to.

Tregaron Water Supply. —Mr fdugh Herberts taid a bill had been received from the Engineer of the water scheme which had been placed before the Finance Committee, but that Commitee had not passed it and reierred the matter to the Council.- In reply to questions by memb ra, who contended that the engineer had not been legally appointed, the Clerk scated that the minutes could etsily he produefd. — Mr Daniel Jenkins asked whether the wholn Union would be responsible for the bill, and the Clerk replied in the negative.—The matter was adjourned for a month to enable the Clerk to pro- duce the minutes of the engineer's appojhtment.

Vagwr-Einion-Fawr, and William Williams, Rhosfach-isaf, appear- ing as sureties, which were accepted. Conference of Poor Law Guardians.—The Chairman gave an interesting account of his visit to the conference of Poor Law Guard- ians at Newport, Mon., and a vote of thanks was accorded him for attending and for his interesting account of it. Estimate of Expenses for Next Half-Year.— The Clerk stated that he had prepared his estimate of expenses for the next half-year, which amounted to 3,014, less E2,183, which would be repaid from the county councils leav- ing £1,730 to be provided for. He wrote to the clerks of the county councils of Cardigan- shire and Pembrokeshire asking them now .much tihey woulil require for county and educational purposes for the next half-year. He had received a reply from Mr. Fryer stat- ing that he would require 6d. in the pound for all purposes; 3d for country rate; 2d. education halfpenny intermediate education and halfpenny technical education. The education rate would be subject to alteration. As he had received no reply from Pembroke- shire, he had estimated the rate at 6d. The county rate to be raised was £ 1.311 and, after taking out the balance in favour, there was R,2,144 to be raised. That would be £1,000 less than the previous half-year. He had put in his previous estimate L200 for the new buildings, which had not been built; 6d. in the pound for Pembrokeshire County Council, which turned out that only 2d. was called for. —In reply to a Member, the Clerk said that would help to reduce the poor rate by 4d. in the pound.—The Chairman hinted that tho Pembrokeshire rate would be higher than had been estimated by the Clerk, and maybe Car- diganshire, as there would be incurred ex- penses of which they were not now aware of in both counties.The Clerk replied that if his estimates were too low, he could make a supplemental precept. Chargeability.—In the case of Evan James. an inmate of the Workhouse, the Clerk stated that he had ascertained that the pauper had a settlement at Llanelly, having resided there for three years without relief. He had writ- ten to the Llanelly Guardians asking them to take James over without an order, but he had received no reply.—The Clerk was re- quested to again write to Llanellv. and if they refused to take James over, that he be author- ised to take steps to obtain an order. Re-Engagement of Pauper Children in Service. The engagements of the pauper children out in service being about to expire, they with tlJeir employers, attended thR Board. In mosts cases, they were re-engaged at an advance of from P,2 10s. to B5 per annum. —The Rev. E. D. Evans, commenting on the way in which the re-engagement of the child- ren was effected, expressed an opinion that it amounted to the children being sold to their friends. Though he was asked b- the Chair- man Vice-Chairman, and Rev J. Williams to withdraw the remark, he refused, stating that he felt he was justified in saying what he did.—It was stated that there was a boy and a girl, agfyf fifteen respectively, with experience, open to an engagement.
llanukitho. Harvest Thanksgiving.—The Calvinistic Method- ist's annual thanksgiving prayer meeting was held Thursday morning, October 13th, at the unusual hour of nine. In the evening, Dr Owen Evans, London, the veteran Congregationalist minister, delivered a clear, eloquent, and effective sermon, based on Ephesians i. 7, to a large and thoroughly aroused assembly. He presented the old and well- known gospel truths in fresh, attractive, and desirable light. This was the reverend g ntleman's first visit to Llangeitho, and at the close of th. service, he warmly expressed his thanks for the permission to preach at the chapel and for his hearty reception by the congregation. Sale at Weiialit.-Oil the 13th October, a sale of stock, implements, and furnuuro wis held at Wenallt. The day i,as DI08t, favourable, the attendance large, aud the prices of horses and cattle good.

NOTES FROM ABEKAifROfs.l i On Sunday night there was the heaviest I downfall of rain since the month of April last. The first heavy flood of the year rolled down the river bed on Mtmday, and carried the bis- cuit tin below the bridge to the sea. So it has left us before the last of the visitors, viz. Mr Rae and family, Captain Clifton, and Mr Warry. John Noland, a tramping labourer, at Adsolwen, was charged by P.C. Thomas of Llannon, before Messrs Morgan Evans and John T. Evans, justices, with being drunk and disorderly at Llannon on Friday, the 14th inst. He was fined 10s. and costs or go to gaol for fourteen days. He was also charged with assaulting P.C. Thomas in the execution of his duty and fined 92 and costs, or in default one month's imprisonment without hard labour. Mr. Gandy, Inland Revenue officer, deserves very hearty acknowledgments for his labours in endeavouring to establish meetings for re- creation or instruction during the winter months. His services as organiser and secre- tary have been unique. The constituency left to work on is attenuated and depleted by other voluntary or imposed obligations. A section of the young people are County School pupils and have home lessons, or an entertain- ment of their own to get up. Another section have Bible classes, another Christmas concerts to rehearse for, others are absorbed by out- door games, so that the virgin ground left for cultivaton in the sense of literary socie- ties, dancing classes, letc., etc., etc., is a limited one. But it is by no means impos- sible to reinvigorate the class of people who have in times past made the literary society successful. The class comprises the profes- sional and commercial classes. But what is true of Christian Mission work is true of all mission work. It can only succeed by per- sonal contact and appeal. Circularizing only is ineffective. There are stirring surprises to be encoun- tered periodically in the District Registry of Marriages Offices. For example. One of the very recent bridegrooms was close on eighty years of age. The bride, a spinster, was below sixty years. Again on Wednesday who should present himself before the hypothetical altar but Mr Jenkyn Jenkins, of Glanwera, surveyor of highways for the Llansantffread district of the Aberayron Union. Mr. Thomas Davies, Compton House, and Mr. D. Saunders Davies Felinfach, were the attesting witnesses. He had brought his bride from the famous Vale of Llangollen. It is a curious fact that taking the last 21 entries of marriages in the register book, and the proportion is about the same by taking other entries, sixteen out of the twenty-one should have been consummated at the Register Office. The young men of the town it appears, are going to make a persevering attempt to estab- lish a football club as their principal recrea- tion for the winter. Annual chairmen shut out many abuses, and when in the rotatory process, an inefficient one turns up. his very deficiencies give oppor- tunities which otherwise would never occur. There is an object lesson now in view. Peniel anniversary services were held on Wednesday and Thursday,. October 12th and 13th. These services give the people the opportunity to hear the first-rate preachers of the Congregationalists of Wales. The preachers at this anniversary were the Revs Rees Rees, of Alltwen, and Peter Price, B.A., of Dowlais. The first had almost a too facile gift of delivery. No matter whether he picked up a .sentence at the beginning, or the middle or the end. he can make it equally complete all ways. This was one of the gifts of Glad- stone. His voice was pleasing and penetra- ting, and the subject matter always of vital immediate importance. Thoroughly evangeli- cal and with a keen insight into men and things, an alert and ingratiating person and manner, and a gift of tongue and lips. it is no wonder that he has drawn together and that he continues to minister with ever in- creasing favour to one of the largest free churches in Glamorganshire. The Rev Peter Price might be mistaken for a Calvinisic Methodist minister. He speaks with more deliberateness, with longer breaks, with more unique, abrupt, and the least anticipated emphasis. He is a North Walian and perhaps that accounts for some of his charac- teristics. He is capable of tremendous in- tensity. There are foreboding indications of gathering forces. There is thunder and dark- ness, and lightning; then a great ei-up tioll. This was the way of the old preachers, and it is a magnificent way. The old preachers were great preachers. Only great preachers can be so, and he is a good preacher. On lhursday night he handled a great theme, with intense earnestness and grandeur With such preachers Nonconformity will always live and thrive.
THE WAR. The Russian advance has ended in complete and disastrous failure, the retreat developing into a. general rout along the whole, front, except on the extreme south-east where a strong body is cut off. The rest of the Russians have re-crossed the Sha-ho and are now being hard pressed over the Hun-ho, re- treating partly on Mukden and partly on Fushun. Marshal Oyama. in a despatch re- ceived at Tokio, says on Friday, throughout the entire front of all the Japanese Armies, the Russians were driven to the right bank of Hun-ho, the plan of attack being thus fundamentally frustrated. The booty, besides the guns already reported, includes vast num- bers of rifles and cars and ammunition. The Marshal adds that the estimated total Rus- sian losses were 30,000 The number of Rus- sian corpses already buried was 9,000. These do not include the results of the fierce engage- ments with the Japanese Left Army on Fri- day and Saturday. General Kuropatkin has sent a message to St. Petersburg of some engagements on Friday, in which his forces were eventually successful. A telegram from Mukden says heavy fighting continued on Sunday on the road ten miles south-west of that place. It is added that it is now certain that the Army will be able to extri- cate itself. A special correspondent with General Kuroki says, regarding the numerous engagements which Marshal Oyama officially designates the Battle of the Sha-ho, the Japanese are pressing the Russians away from the line of railway into the mountains. Their case, he adds, appears desperate in the extreme. From Shangai it is announced that operations on the Sha-ho being concluded, Marshal Oyama is reorganising his armies preparatory to a renewed advance. Gene- ral bakharoff reports that in the fighting of Sun- day the Russians recaptured Lonely Tree Hill, south of the Sha-ho, and took eleven guns and one quick-firing gun. Notwithstanding fierce resistance, the Japanese were driven off the hill, The fighting lasted for several hours, and the losses were heavy. It is stated in Tokio that the Japanese, continuing their advance, have occu- pied additional positions to the south of Sha-ho The Left Army took Wu-fu-kia-tun on October 16th, and repulsed a subsequent counter-attack by the Russians. The infantry were harassing the retreat. General Oku, who on Saturday cap- tured Li-muu-tun, where the Russians made their last stand, is said to be operating so as to block the retreat along the railway. Major Takashima's battalion, it is announced, captured fourteen guns at Kau-chia-tzu on Sunday. This makes thirty-four guns taken by the Centre Army since the 14th Oct. It is authoritatively reported that the Russian Fleet at Port Arthur is suffering severely from the fire of the Japanese land batteries. The Japanese are now using balloons to assist their high-angled fire. Reports regarding the great battle proceeding in Manchuria are rather conflicting. The Japanese official messages, which carry events up to Monday night, eay that the Russians were everywhere beaten with heavy loss. The only reverse they admit is the capture of fourteen guns by the Russians on Sunday. On the other hand, the Russian telegrams, which, however, are not official, state that yesterday the Japanese were driven back with the loss of thirty-two guns.

BORTH. Potato Orlop.—The potato crop is very good this year. Sudde-n Death.—Cybil Rees the youngest child of Mr Archibald Rees, Maglona-cottages. died quite suddenly last Saturday morning. The little child was in its accustomed health on the previous (day up to five o'clock when it vomited a little, after which it seemed to recover. About one o'clock a.m., the parents were awakened and noticed the child's breath- ing was forced and lr. Rees went for P.C. Rowlands at once. The child died before the father returned from getting medical aid. The funeral was held on Tuesday at St. Mat- thew's Church, the Rev. Tudor Evans offici- ating. Much sympathy is felt with the par- ents. Harvest Thanksgiving.—The annual harvest thajnksgiving services were held in all the Nonconformist places of worship last Wednes- day week and was largely attended at the different chapels. Parish Council.- Ameeting of Cyfoethy- brenin Parish Council was held in the National School last Saturday, present Mr. W. Jones, Brynrodyn (chairman); Messrs E. J. Williams, W. Jones, J. D. Price, W. T. Lewis, W. D. Jones, J. Beynon, D. Hughes. J. Ellis, E. Jones, W. H. Ody, and Mr. James Williams, clerk.—The minutes of the previous meeting were colifii-iiied.-It was decided to convene a parish meeting three weeks hence and to submit an estimate for the. confirmation of the parish meeting of C20 towards lighting re- quirements and to use the balance in hand from last year till then. Consideration of the burial groinld question, too. was deferred till the parish meeting. Mr. W. T. Lewis having had permission, read a column from a daily paper from which it would appear that efforts are made and committees formed by those interested in the defence of the fore- shoro on the East Coast to bring under the notico of the Government the necessity of some action being taken by them in the pro- tection of the foreshore. The Council de- cided to leave the matter in the Clerk's anjd Mr. Lewis's hands for them to take any action they deemed advisable to gain further informa- tion which they considered was all important to the residents and owners of Borth.

AGRICULTURAL ORGANISATION. At a conference of the Farmers' Co-operative Societies affiliated to the Agricultural Organi- sation Society held in London, in the absence of Mr R. A, Yerburgh, M. P. (the President), and the Hon. T. A. Brassey (Chairman of the Ex- ecutive), the chair was occupied by Mr H. C. Fairfax-Cholmeley. The Chairman announced that delegates were present from eighteen counties. The Committee of the Agricultural Organisation Society had come to the conclusion that, as the movement was developing so rapidly, an advisory business department should be formed. This had been done, and the services of Mr A. H. Simmon-Is who has had coneidfrahle expeiience in dealing with the principal commodities used by farmers. had been engaged. The Chairman further stated that important concessions from the trade had been obtained already by the business department on behalf of the affiliated societies. An interesting discussion took place, in which nearly all the delegates took part, and the following resolutions were unanimously passed That this meeting approves of the action of the Committee and hopes that the establishment of the depaitment may lead, eventually, to the formation of a separate ¡ society for wholesale purchase." That this meeting endoraes the action of the Committee in proposing that the business department should assist the affiliated societies in finding a market for their produce." That this meeting is of opinion that as the new business department, whicli has been formed solely to benefit the affiliated Societies, will entail considerable expeoes on the Agricultural Organisation Society, the affiliated societies should be asked to increase their contributions."
D V I l,'S BRIDGE New School Managers.—A meeting of the par- ochial electors of Llanfihangel Upper was held at the school last Friday. This was convened by Rev T. Mason Jones, the county councillor for the parish, and a member also of the County Education Committee. The meeting had for its object the exchange of confidences between Mr Jones and his constituents. Mr Jones gave a very lucid and interesting account of the steps already taken to set up the various new edu- cation authorities for the county. Having ex- plained that the three schools of this parish had been grouped with the one school of Llanfihangel Lower, a discussion arose on the question of apportioning the twelve school managers to be chosen for ( lie group equitably between the two parishes. All felt, in order to safeguard the interest of each school, that there were only two fair bases to go by, either according to the number of schools, which would give the upper parish nine managers and the lower three. or according to children on registers in each parish, which would give eight and four respectively. Mr Jones next proceeded to explain how the group managers were to oe chosen,—two thirds by the County Education Committee and one- third by the District and Parish Councils. It was felt that the managers ought to include some of the members of the late School Board, who kuow the state of the school buildings and particulars us to debts and unfinished accounts. Mr Jones further remarked that the past honour- able and faithful service of the chairman of the late Board, Mr T. J. Wadditigliam, Hafod, de- served recognition by his being reappointed' one of the managers. Mr T. Oliver Jones, Rheidol House, and Mr D. Mason, Grliinfedw, two mem- bers of the late Board, having apoken on the School Board's ouigoing position, the meeting recommended the following persons to act as managers, subject to their approval and formal appointment by the Education Committee Mr T. J. Waddingham, Mr Raw, Tyllwyd, Mr T. O. Jones, Rheuiol House, Mr D. Mason, Glan- fedw, and Mr T. Mason Jones, Trisant. No re- commendation was made as to the managers tb be chosen by the District and Parish Councils pending the definite apportionment between the two parishes. Obituary.—The only child of Mr and Mrs W Hopkins, Bodcoll, died, after only a short illness' last week and was buried en Tuesday at Eglwys- newydd. The parents naturally feel their loss very much and sympathy is expressed with thew. Serious Fire.—Great surprise and concern were occasioned on Thursday, October 13th, by the news of a disastrous fire at Gelmast, Cwm- ystwyth, which destroyed the whole stock of hay, valued at £200. The fire broke out, presumably through a spark from the chimney, about six p.m. the previous night. Neighbours in large numbers flocked to the scene, but all their efforts availed not to save any of the hav. Fortunately, the wind blew the flames away from the house and out- buildings, else the result might have been much more serious, ft is a great loss to Mr and Mrs T. Davies, who are both so well known and highly respected. Widespread sympathy is felt for them, which will doubtless take tangible form.
THE SYMBOL OF STRENGTH. Britannia is the symbol of strength at home and abroad, and whether upon the ocean wave or in the serried ranks of her brave sons in Egypt, India, or China, the fame of our coun- try is always identified with power of will and strength of nerve—the highest state of cour- age that makes heroes. Science is the hand- maid that helps to maintain this standard of supremacy, and the great gifts of nature <.1'6 concentrated for the use of men in Gvv.lym Evans' Quinine Bitters, a Tonic to keep every faculty at its brightest and its best. Mighty is the power of the spade and those who wield it are the pioneers cf our greatness. The I fearless miner burrowing in the earth and the strong navvy removing mountains are the very sinews of the nation. These men must always keep their strength at full stretch.

The hard working toilers, generally, of the United Kingdom, should remember the old saying, "Prevention is better than cure," and that just as it is necessary to call in a medieal man, when brain and body are overtaxed, so is it desirable to do all that is possible to keep the system thoroughly up to the mark, for every rush of competition and extra labour. You have a regular doctor, have you a regular preservative of health to save you from the doctor and the doctor's bills? If not, try Gwilym Evans' Quinine Bitters, The Great Tonic Preventative against Serious Illness. The distressing worries of a family household lead to the greatest suffering—the nervous system being specially strained in the turmoil, and Neuralgia, Nervousness, and Debility, with their attendant miseries are the most fre- quent torments that women in particular have to endure. Low Spirits and Depression often render housewives quite unfit for their oner- ous duties and to prevent this condition Gwilym Evans' Quinine Bitters is strongly recom- mended. Don't delay if you feel out of sorts, but get Gwilym Evans' Quinine Bitters, a purely vegetable tonic, which contains the strengthening qualities of Sarsaparilla, Saffron, Burdock, Gentian, Lavender, and Dandelion, as well as Quinine.

LLANDYSSUL Personal.—Mr. D. J. Evans a pupil of the County School, and who a few months ago passed the entrance examination of the Capital and Counties' Bank, has started at the Brynmawr branoh. Thanksgiving Services.—Harvest thanksgiv- ing services were held at Peniel (Wesleyan) Chapel on Tuesday last. A prayer meeting was held in the afternoon and the Rev Berwyn Roberts, Lampeter, delivered a most appro- priate sermon to a large congregation in the evening. Thanksgiving Services.—Harvest thanks- giving services were held at the Parish Church on Wednesday, the 12th October. The ser- vices were largely attended. Gas has now been substituted for the old oil lamps and this is a great improvement in the Church. The officiating clergy were the Revs. Prebend- ary Lloyd, Llanpumpsaint!; M. Williams, Llanarth and H. Evans, Llanhowell.
Itocal anb district. Judge Bowen Rowlands. K.C., has been placed on tho commission of the peace for the county of Cheshire. Mr Bryn Roberts, M.P., at a meeting of the South Carnarvonshire Liberal Associ- ation on Tuesday,, created surprise by de- claring against the Welsh national policy on the education question and in favour ot re- vival of the St Asaph concordat proposal, with the concession of inside facilities." He thought the country could afford to con- ccndo this in return for securing absolute con- trol of the schools. The meeting unani- mously approved of the national policy as declared at Caildiff. The Marchioness of Londonderry, in open- ing a bazaar on Tuesday at Ryhope, near Sunderland, in aid of the local church schools, called attention to the fact that. prior to 1870, elementary education was almost en- tirely in the hands of Church people, who had built schools at their own expense-a fact which was forgotten in the controversies on the education question. She wishqd she could think that those who in these sad con- troversies discussed education had solely for their object the good of the children; but she was afraid that political and ;other matters were mix4d with it. In current phraseology Church people backed their opinion and until 1902 not only paid school rates for secular education where there was a school board, but alsb built and supported their own schools, and now that the cost of secrlar education was placed on the rates (paid alike by church people and people of other denominations). Church people still hd to pay Hor alterations and improve- ments. "We wish," continued the March- ioness of Londonderry, "to make definite religious teaching a daily lesson, a part and parcel of every-day life, a guide to conduct, and not relegate it to one hour or one day of the week. We believe such teaching helps beytond all other teaching the formation of character, and without character and con- duct intellectual attainments, however bril- liant, are but a beautiful super-structure built without a sure foundation." The Marquess and Marchioness of London- derry are entertaining a large party at Wynyard Park, Stockton, for covert shoot- ing. Mr. R. Strachan Gardiner, F.S.J., elder son of Mr. Gardiner, Crosswood, has been appointed agent for the Hawarden Castle estate, Flint-shire. The present owner of this fine property is a grandson of the late iimnt Hon. W. E. Gladstone. Mr. Gardiner enters upon his duties next month. Mr Winston Churchill recently made a call at the National Liberal Club as the guest of Mr. Lloyd-George. It is said that he is likely to become a member. Mr..Ldoyd- George is also to pay a visit to Lord Rosebery in Scotland this autumn for a short stay. These two probable members of the next Lio- eral Government have much in common. Among the passengers by the Cunard liner, Campania, which arrived at Liverpool on Saturday from New York, were Lieut.-Col- onel E. Pryce-Joncs, M.P.. and Mr. J. Bryn Roberts, M.P.
