J Yn Awsangr ein Tadau." Reorinted from The Pembroke County Guardian," Salva: H. W. Williams, Publisher. This collection of biographical sketjbes and ''ontributions on historical aud phy<oiogical sub- jets, now published in pamphlet form, could not fa 1 to bs of exceptional interest to the readers of the "Pembroke County Guardian," and, indeed, they were well worth reproducing in their present form. We perused with considerable interest and pleasure the letters on "Pem bi okl-shire Men of the Centur3- "-General Picton, the Rev James Allen, the late Dean of St. David's, Dewi, Dvfed, and the Witches of Gloucester,' a speech delivered by Dr John Rhys to the Gloucester ? on the 1st of March, 1900, The Landing of Henry, Earl of Richmond. A D. 1485, at Milford," "The Welsh People," "Trie Brookes of Llanglydwen" and Place.names in Llanfyrnacb," two parishes 0n the confines of Carmarthenshire and Pembrokshire, e c. But we are greatly surprised at the assertion made by the U. v John Lloyd James (Clwyd- wenfro), M urc\ Cambridge, that the word Traws in Trawstr^ j, derived from the Latin" torrens," a brook. The hypothesis, in our opinion, is not only erroneous, but fanciful in the extreme. The name of the ri 7nltt running through the parish of Llanglydwen, according to Ciwydweofro, is Traws. Consequently the meaning of Trawstre is Tre ar y Traw, It is impossible, as Professor Powell,of Cu'dilY, *aid, that traws is derived trom the Latin i. toi reus." There aie several place-names in Wales with the prefix traws, such as Trawstre, Trawsgoed (Eaglisbtitd Orosswood), Trawsfynydd, &e. Per- haps some of the readers of the Rhyl Journal will give the true sigooification of "traws." It has nothing whatever tj do with water.
