WEEK BY WEEK. I A visitor preacher occupied the pulpit one Sundav. He found that he had left his spectacles at home, and said he could not see to give out a hymn. The man who con- ducted the inging in the big seat under the pulpit promptly handed his own pair of glasses to the preacher, who said, after put- ting on the glasses: "Nis gallaf wel'd a'r spectol hon, Mae'n rhy dywyll," and the conductor, thinking they were the first lines of a hymn, led the congregation in singing them. The preacher, desiring to convince them it was not a hymn, said "Peidiwch canu, bobol bach, Nid yw benill." and this and four other lines were heartily sung much to the chagrin of the preacher, who had been misunderstood all through One Welshman who became a member of Parliament quite recently did so against the wishes of his wife. She is (says the "Wes- tern Mail") an ardent Unionist-so ardent that she had no sympathy whatever with the candidature of her husband, who was stand. ing as a Radical, and she frankly hoped he would lose, but he didn't, he won the seat. A correspondent in a Yorkshire paper challenges the statement that the British Welshman is a red man, the Iberian or Spanish Welshman a black man. He says that in North Wales he is red, in the South he is dark, but that is the case in the Iberian peninsula itself, where both red and dark coloured men are met with. The Welsh National Library at Aberys- twyth, has recently added to its treasures, a parchment roll, over 19 feet long and a foot broad, containing the genealogical tree of King Edward VI. It is a beautiful piece of work, written in the latter part of the 15th century, and is elaborately illuminated. The descent of King Henry occupies six yards of the roll, and is traced back' to Adam. The descent of the Welsh Princes down to Ed. ward 1. is also shown.
