Items of Interest.


Items of Interest. The North Wales Scholarship Association has come to an end, having fulfilled its purpose, which is taken over by the Intermediate Schools. The Association, which has spent -43,000 in the cause of education, has done good service, and paved the way for the more comprehensive system now about to come into force. Principal Reichel, who spoke at the final meeting, mentioned the in- teresting fact that since he came into the country the number of students at the Colleges had risen from 200 to 500. Last Monday, the foundation-stone of a Church dedicated to St Peter, was laid at Brynteg, Brymbo. This makes the third Church built within the last five years in the parish where the Rev Dan Davies last year succeeded the Rev Canon Roberts in the Vicariate. St Peter's Church is to cost about LiOoo altogether, and is to seat two hundred. A stained-glass window, erected by public subscription as a memorial to the late Lord Penrhyn, was on Sunday morning, September 23rd, unveiled at St Mary's Church, Bangor, the Lord Bishop (Right Rev Dr Lewis Lloyd) preach- ing the dedication sermon, and the afternoon and evening preachers respectively being the Rev Canon D. Jones (Vicar of Llandegai) and the Rev Canon Hugh Robers (Vicar of St Paul's, Colwyn Bay). It was the nobleman commemorated who gave the town of Conway the money required to procure the town-clock now so conspicuously placed in the Conway Church tower. A marriage is arranged between Mr Frank Lloyd, son of His Honour Judge Sir Horatio Lloyd, of Chester, and May, only daughter of the late Captain C. G. Stanley, 32nd Light Infantry. The South Wales Temperance Association has called attention to the fact that barrister M.P.'s have appeared for publicans at the brewster sessions. In North Wales this never happens. Dr Roland Rogers, has been appointed Instruc- tor in Music, at the North Wales University College, Bangor, in connexion with the department which has recently been established for-the train- ing of schoolmasters and schoolmistresses.
