On the Saturday the meeting terminated with a team match of nine a side against the Rhyl Golf Club, and the home team carried everything be- fore them, winning by 47 holes.

The links at Conway have been very much improved, and the visitors were so charmed that many of them put down their names for election next month. With- out doubt, the Carnarvonshire Club will soon become one of the most popular, and have to increase the accommodation at their Club-house,or remove to a larger one. The Hon.

A Birmingham gentleman writes to a contemporary as followsMay I recount my experience in visiting Conway Castle on Easter Monday ? On en- tering the first thing which I noticed was a boy vigorously trying to break a young tree growing inside the walls. Emerging into the courtyard I found I was the target for some youths, who from the point of vantage which the castle walls afforded, made me and others an object of aim for spitting upon and throwing tufts of turf torn from the walls and also twigs of ivy. Beyond the presumable banquet- ing-hall I f jund in one enclosure about a dozen or more lads engaged at pitch and toss, and in another and more remote part of the ruin about eight more youths similarly occupied. The whole place was a good-natured bear-garden, but still it was a bear- garden. No one controlled this crowd of youths, and no one in authority was present within the ruins. The condition of the castle is a disgrace to North Wales. An admission-fee is charged, and this should certainly be applied to keeping the place orderly and decent and, if funds permitted, some essential repairs to prevent ruins becoming unneces- arily ruinous might reasonably be undertaken.
