IOg- THE HONEY-FAIR.—Yesterday (Thursday), September 13th, the annual honey-fair was held in High-street, Conway, and both honey and wax were at noon in rather short supply. Instead of opening business with extravagantly high quot- ations which could not be long maintained, honey was quoted (and sold) at six shillings per quart (about 3 lbs), while wax fetched eighteenpence a pound. It appeared that the heather-honey was three weeks later than usual this year, owing to wet weather on the gathering-grounds, and consequently very nearly all the honey brought to Conway this year, was the produce of blossoms other than the "purple heather-bells." It seemed not improbable that the price of honey might be fairly maintained through the day, and that the price of wax might be advanced. RAILWAY CHANGES.—Mr J. F. Braggins, (for- merly Stationmaster at Mochdre) has exchanged the Night Stationmastership of Holyhead, for the Stationmastership of Conway, and Mr J. A. m' Vaughan, has left for Holyhead, his departure (on promotion to the more highly salaried but very trying position vacated by his successor at Conway) being very much regretted by the many friends he has made in "the ancient borough" and neighbourhood. A SUDDEN DEATH IN CONWAY.—On Tuesday morning, September nth, Mary Williams, of Brymbo, who was in service with Mrs Ralphs, at the English Wesleyan Chapel House, died sud- denly from heart-disease, and dropsy. The deceased had been complaining off and on, and on Monday night complained of pains in her side and head. About eight o'clock on Tuesday morning, the deceased became suddenly worse, and Mrs Ralphs went to fetch Dr Prichard, but when he arrived he found that life was extinct. No inquest was held. DEATH OF MR WILLIAM ELIAS, LONDON.-We announce with regret the death of Mr William Elias, of the firm of Messrs Pierce & Davies, timber-merchants, London and America, which occured on Wednesday, September 5th, at his resi- dence. 4 Seymour-road, Southfields, London, S.W. Mr Elias travelled continually between England and America, and it is believed that while on one of these voyages he contracted a cold, which developed into consumption. The departed, who was 45 years of age, was the eldest son of the late Mr Edward Elias, of Gorswen, Caerhun, and was married to Miss Annie Pritchard, third daughter of Mrs Pritchard, Tanycoed, Bangor, and sister of Mr R. H. Pritchard, town-clerk of Bangor.— The funeral took place, on Saturday afternoon, September 8th. at Caerhun Churchyard.
