WEEK BY WEEK. Llewelyn ap Gruffydd was slain near Builth on December nth, 1282. He opposed Edward I., and his grandfather, Llewelyn the Great, op- posed King John and Henry III. Education is an expensive business nowadays, whichever way we IOOlk at it. Of a Barigor woman it was stated at the police court that her failure to send her children to school had cost the ratepayers hundreds of pounds. In its notice of Mr Lloyd George, the Daily Mail Year Book speaks of his great suc- cess at the Board of Trade; his great cour- age as a strategist; the" great" political storm roused by his Budget, and the greater pro- minence it has given him than ever before. Three greats and a greater in twelve lines WaJles is undeniably the land of song. In this connection a shrewd observer remarks —When an Englishman is drunk he is belligerent; when a Frenchman is drunk he is amorous when a Scotchman is drunk he is argumentative when a German is drunk he is sleepy when an Ameri- can is. drunk he brags, and when, a Welshman is drunk he sings, and sometimes dances." After all, there are advantages in being Welsh Mr. H. M. Pemberton, in a descriptive article in the Art Journal on BLewbury, writes of Morgan Jones, a Welshman, and a miser, who was once cur ate-in-charge of that place. He died worth fifty thousand pounds, and some curious stories are given of his economy. It is .said that he wrote his sermons on pieces of paper torn from the walls, and was obliged to lie in bed whilst his one shirt was being washed. On one occasion, when walking in the fields, he saw an old scarecrow having a hat, the rim of which was sound. Jones seized the hat, and, taking off the, one he was wearing, re-placed it by that of the scarecrow. His coat, of many tatters, is still in existence, and is kept in re- membrance by photographs, which are sold in the neighbourhood.
