A FAITHFUL DOG.—County Councillor Hugh Owen has an old and faithful collie. It was a great favourite of Mr Owen's late wife. The poor animal is practically blind and de- crepit, yet it seems to divine its! owner's move- ment, in every way. The faithful dog can be seen awaiting its owner's return to the house by the gate, and there is a touch of pathos m the manner in which it proceeds to the house in a halting manner, and gives murmurs of evident pleasure at the return of his master.

THE PUBLIC LIGHTING.—At a meeting of the Conway Rural District Council, held on Fri- day at Conway, the question of the public lighting of the place was considered, now that the gas mains have been laid in parts of the Parish of Llangwstenyn. The main street is now lighted by the primitive method of oil, and Mr. Hugh Owen suggested that they try and come to an arrangement with the man who has the contract for lighting to bring his services under the old arrangement to an end. It was deemed a pity to be burning oil when gas was now available. Mr. Raynes thought it would be burning the candle at both ends to have oil and gas. Mr. Levi John, the surveyor, stated that if they used gas they would still have two lamps to light with oil at the Pen- sarn end, because of the gas mains not going so far. The matter was left in the hands of the Clerk to try and come to an arrangement.

The local branch of the Union is being energetically worked, and a meeting will be held to-morrow (Friday) evening at Pensarn C.M. Chapel, when all women are invited to be present.
