CARNARVONSHIRE COUNTY GOVERNING BODY. -At the Carnarvonshire County Governing Body's meeting, at Carnarvon, on Friday, March 6th, Mr D. P. Williams presiding, attention was called, by Principal Reichel, to the Conway-cum-Llandudno Local Governing Body's action with respect to scholarships and bursaries in the Penmaenmawr district. Some time ago the County Governing Body acceded to the Local Body's permission to open a school in temporary premises at Llan- dudno, conditionally upon the scholarships and bursaries being tenable either at Bangor or Llan- dudno at the choice of the parents. Principal Reichel now complained that this condition had not been loyally carried out, inasmuch as bursaries were only to be tenable at Llandudno. He moved that the attention of the Local Governors be called to the fact, in the hope that the agreement would be observed in the future. Mr Issard Davies seconded.—Mr C. H. Darbishire main- tained that the agreement had been loyally carried out, the parents having had their choice.—The resolution was eventually carried.

MR ALBERT WOOD, J.P., D.L.—Among the Welsh Yachting Notes in The Liverpool Daily Post of March 6th, appeared the following :—"Mr Albert Wood is cruising in the Mediterranean in his steam yacht Erycina, and will not return home before May. Mr Wood is accompanied by seve- ral friends, among whom is a well-known gallant Major who just before strained relations arose be- tween this country and Germany had applied for leave of absence for the purpose of joining his friends in the Mediterranean. Some delay occur- red in the arrival of the required furlough, but as things began to assume a more pacific aspect the leave of absence was granted, and the gallant Major hied him to the sunny South. The P. and O. boat on which he sailed called at his port of debarkation, but as the Major was at dinner at the time, and knew a good thing when he had it, he did not hurry himself, at an-yrate not enough, and, somewhat to his dismay, was incontinently carried off to the next port of call, which happened to be Malta. How he eventually reached his friends is not stated, but it is said that both he and they had many a hearty laugh over the inci- dent afterwards."
