The Llandudno National Eisteddfod. The catering for the Llandudno Eisteddfod has been let exclusively to Mr Sumner, of the Gros- venor Restaurant, Llandudno, the sale of intoxi- cating liquors being forbidden. In the Cymmrodorion section of the National Eisteddfod at Llandudno, Mr W. Edwards Tire- buck, is to read a paper entitled "Welsh Thought and English Thinkers." Mr Tirebuck's Tales from the Welsh Hills," which appeared in serial form in English, Scotch, and Welsh papers last year, are to be shortly published in cheap volume form, illustrated by a Welsh artist. Mr Heine- mann has added Mr Tirebuck's latest book, Miss Grace of All Souls, to his Col- onial Library. According to The Literary World, Mr William Tirebuck. the author of what is hitherto the only notable novel of Liverpool life ("Dome") and who resides in the ancient and honourable Welsh village of Rhuddlan, occupies the relic of an equally ancient mansion known as the "Banquet House." I) stands across the roadway from the ruined Castle, whose battered walls still witness the prowess of the Ironsides, as the Welsh lament of "Morfa Rhuddlan" celebrated the tragic fate of its defenders. Below the castle the quiet waters of the Clwyd go down to the distant sands of Rhyl. It is a fitting dwelling-place for Mr Tirebuck's modest and gentle muse."
