ST ELIAN'S WELL CONTRASTED WITH ST DWYNWEN'S.-In the Cardiff Times of February ist, "Cadrawd" contrasts the customs in vogue at St Elian's Well (near Colwyn Bay) with those practised at St Dwynwen's (in Anglesea). Cad- rawd says:—"St Dwynwen's Well, isin the parish of Llanddwyn, Anglesea, and in former times, and particularly about the middle of the four- teenth century, both sexes visited this celebrated well for the purpose of being cured of love sick- ness. Dwynwen was the traditional Valentine of the Britons, the patron Saint of Lovers. St Elien's Well, on the other hand was the most dreadful of all the wells. Persons who bore any malice against others, and wished to injure them, frequently resorted to the minister of this well, who, for a sum of money, undertook to "offer" them in it. The penalty consisted either in personal pain or loss of property, as the offerer pleased. Various ceremonies were gone through on such occasions. Amongst others, were-the name of the devoted was registered in a book, a pin was put in his name, and a pebble with his initials inscribed thereon, and thrown into the well. When the curse was to be removed the ceremonies to a certain extent were reversed, such as erasing the name from the book, taking up the pebble, with several other practices of a superstitious character."—It may be interesting to note that, in another column of the same paper, the commemoration-day of St Dwynwen is stated to be January 25th.
