and, as an instance of the correct way to read a book, he mentioned the ways adopted by two Carnarvonshire men,—Mr J. Bryn Roberts, M.P., and the Rev Evan Jones, Carnarvon. He envied those men for the way in which they read. Mr J. Bryn Roberts read a book with such a purpose that, after he had finished reading it, it was almost his own. It might be that he not only possessed the power of application to a high degree, but also possessed a retentive memory. The Rev Evan Jones was a reader of the same class.—It is to be hoped that not only will the members of the Carmel Literary Society benefit by the remarks of the reverend gentleman, but that others will also benefit.—Before the con- clusion of the meeting, votes of thanks were cordially passed to Mrs J. A. Jones for her excellent catering to the Chairman and to the Hon. Secretary (Mr John Williams, Bank). A most enjoyable evening was brought to a close by the singing of a hvmn-tune. DEATH OF MR. R. LL. PRICHARD, HENRYD NATIONAL SCHOOLS.—We announce with regret the death, very suddenly, on Thursday afternoon, April 30th, of Mr R. Ll. Prichard, who, for the last eleven years has been Headmaster of Henryd National Schools. The deceased, who was aged 45, had appeared in his usual health in the Schools that day, but was taken suddenly ill in the after- noon, and expired after the lapse of but a few minutes. Great sympathy is expressed for the widow and children (three sons and one daughter) of the deceased, who had won for himself general respect and esteem.-The funeral took place on Tuesday, May 5th. all that was mortal of Mr Prichard being interred in the burial-ground attached to the Parish Church of Llangelynin, the officiating clergy being the Rev D. Bankes-Price (Rector) and Canon Owen Jones (Bodelwyddan). The hearse was preceded by the schoolchildren of Llangelynin, marshalled in procession (at the express request of the friends) by Messrs Davies (Henryd) and T. M. Jones (Conway). The funeral was a very large one, and in the Church, which was literallv filled to overflowing. Mr Allan (Conway) played- on the harmonium the Dead March" in Saul. By the graveside, the well- known Welsh hymn 0 fryniau Caersalem was sung to the tune" Crugybar." Among those present at the funeral were the Incumbents of Caerhun, Gyffin, and Cemaes (Anglesea), the last-mentioned being a brother of the deceased. MARRIAGE OF THE REV T. D. JONES AND MISS EMMA HUGHES. The marriage of the Rev Thomas Davies Jones, Pastor of the Seion Welsh Congregational Chapel, Conway, with Miss Emma Hughes, daughter of the late Mr Isaac Hughes, and of Mrs Hughes (of Ty Newydd, St Asaph), was solemnised, on Tuesday morning, April 28th, at the Calvinistic Methodist Chapel, St Asaph, the Revs Jonathan Jones (C. M. Pastor) and Jones (Congrega- tional Pastor) officiating. The bride, who looked charming in her gray travelling-dress, was atten- ded by one bridesmaid, her cousin Miss Harriet Hughes (of Castle-street, Conway), whose dress was of light fawn. The bridegroom had as his best man Mr H. R. Hughes (of St Asaph). Aftei the ceremony, the wedding party drove to Ty Newydd, and, after the wedding breakfast, the Rev T. D. and Mrs Jones drove to Rhyl, whence they proceeded by an afternoon train to New Brighton, where the early days of the honeymoon were spent. The presents were numerous, hand- some, and useful.

Alderman Hugh Hughes gave notice of his intention to move, at the Council's next monthly meeting, the rescission of the following resolu- tion the Council had passed on April ist That the Borough Surveyor's Report, under Section 16 of the Public Health Act, 1875, as to Watkin Street proposed Sewerage Works be recommended for adoption by the Town Council, and that the necessary notices be served upon the owners of the land through which the pro- posed sewer is to be carried." THE SANITARY COMMITTEE. From the minutes of the Sanitary, &c., Com- mittee of the meeting on April 27H1, it appeared that the Committee recommended that the Borough Surveyor should investigate as to the suitability of acitylene gas-generators for a Perch-light, procuring for each member of the Council a copy of a circular issued concerning the same that the Mayor, the Chairman (Councillor Dr. Prichard), Alderman Hugh Hughes, and Councillors John Hughes and A. Netherwood, should be constituted a committee, to examine the accounts of the Gas and Water Contract, reporting to the Council thereon that the Borough Surveyor should endeavour to induce the owners of property in the Old Road and Cadnant New Road, to remove the existing obstruction, so as to allow the public to use the same as a highway that the Borough Surveyor should inquire and report as to a suitable spot for a Fever Hospital for the Borough that a notice-board should be placed on the Deganwy- road, warning householders of the penalties incurred by placing any line, cord, or pole on the said road, or placing any clothes thereon that Mr Robert Jones, the owner of the houses in Wind-street, Mount Pleasant be requested to lay a drain, and to fix two gullies in the street, so as to take the surface-water into the main-sewer, and that, in the event of his so doing the Sanitary Committee would recommend the Town Council to take the street over as a highway repairable by the Council that the Town Clerk, in reply to Mr Phillips's letter claiming £3 3s for injury to his head, alleged to have been caused by a stone falling from the Bangor-road archway, should state that the Council do not admit any liability in the matter that the Conway Rural District Council should be allowed to connect the Gloddaeth water supply pipe with the municipal water-mains at Llanrhos, upon payment of an acknowledgment of Li per annum, and subject to an agreement to disconnect the same when called upon by the Town Council and, finally, That the Borough Surveyor present a report as to the condition upon which the Lease was granted to Mr Edward Roberts, of Corporate land at Waen for building purposes, and that this Committee disapprove of the action of the Borough Surveyor in not reporting upon the building as erected by Mr Roberts." Councillor Roberts now objected to any recommendation coming from the Sanitary Com- mittee with reference to a lease to him it was a matter for the Estate Committee. The Town Clerk said that it was a matter for the Sanitary Committee, if any sanitary question was under consideration otherwise, it was a matter for the Estate Committee. Aldermen Hugh Hughes and Hugh Jones, and Councillor Netherwood, supported the considera- tion of the recommendation Councillors Tosde- vine, Roberts, and Prichard, opposed. Ultimately the recommendation was allowed to pass, and the Sanitary Committee's minutes were adopted.
