Lloyd as cookery mistress, and Mr Wil- liam Williams as master of woodwork. THE INFANTS' SCHOOL.—His Majesty's Inspector reported as follows on the infants' schools This is an exceptionally well-taught school. The instruction is given in the true Kindergarten spirit, and the natural activities of the children are skilfully directed towards secur- ing intelligent and successful work. Lessons arc well graded, and thoughtfully prepared, and all subjects are appropriately inter-connected.

LIKE A HOTTENTOT VILI,AGE.Such, were the remarks of a gentleman in commercial world as being applicable to the main road leading from the railway station past Penrhos- terrace. The place is in a deplorable condition owing to. breaking up the road for gas pipes, the heavy rains, and the constant need of scrap- ing them. Now that the rates are so abnor- mally high, it is only reasonable that those who contribute so much towards the administration should have cleaner roads to work upon. instead of being ankle deep in mud.

Luther Thomas, pastor of the Broad-street Con- gregational Church, on Sunday evening, during his sermon, bemoaned the fact that the Press of to-day was largely responsible for much of the present condition of the people, inasmuch as so little space was given to those matters which elevate and ennoble life, whilst fifteen and six- teen columns, can be found relating to sport of the day. I TURNING ON THE GAS.-Much interest was centred in the even of turning on the gas in this place on Monday evening. The first light was seen at Mr. H. W. Hughes' Stanley Stores.
