THE LAST OF THE TURNPIKES. The trust of the Holyhead and Shrewsbury road, as far as Anglesey was concerned, had been ex- tended to the first of November last, but upon that date the exacting of tolls at the turnpikes ceased. On Thursday last, Mr John Fritchard, Bangor, offered for sale at the Bull Hotel, Llangefni, the tell-bouses and the gates. Much interest was taken in the sale, whieh was largely attended. In describing the property offered for sale, the auc- tioneer read a short paragraph which had appeared in "Tit Bits" a few weeks ago on the subject. The houses were sold as follows:—Llanfair P.G. house, JE215, Mr W. E. Jones for the Marquis of Angle- gey. Garnedd Ddu, C-50, same purchaser. Nant Newydd, JE132. Mr J. Williams, Ty Du, Bodffordd. Uwalchmai, Y,70, Mr T. G. Owen for Lord Stanley. Caergeiliog, JE70, Mr Evan Williams, tenant. Valley, JE60, Mr T. G. Owen, for Lord Stanley. The abolition of the tolls will mean a loss of about JE500 a year to the county, as the expense of re- pairing the road will have to be borne by the Council in future.
