EARLY MAN IN WALES. i LEICTUREi BY PROFESSOR: ANWYL. A lecture was given, on Friday evening in the Town Hall, by Professor Anwyl, of Aberystwyth, entitled "Elarly Man in Wiales." The lecture had been arranged by the Llandudno and District Field C'iub, the vice-president of which Association, Mr Willoughby Gardner, F.L.S., F.R'.G.S' F.E.S., occupied the chair. The limelight lantern was utilised to illustrate the lecture, manipulated by Mr A. H. Hughes, with the. assistance of Mr W. Owen, Cystenin. The Town Hall, it was satisfactory to note, was full, in pleasing contrast) to the attendance at some previous lectures. Professor Anwyl, who was given a most cordial reception, after a brief introduc- tion, divided the time to he dealt with into three epochs, i.e., the stone age that vast period in the life of man when metals were unknown in Britain; secondly, that period when bronze began to be used, and thirdly the period when the knowledge of iron had spread from Europe into Britain. It, was impossible to give accurate dates with regard to the stone, age, but com- petent archtelogists dated the beginning of the bronze age as roughly 1500 B.C. Neither was the beginning of the iron age 9 zn easy to determine, but, to date it 200' years B.C. would be adequate for their purposes that, night, and was a rough estimate of when iron began to enter into the life of man in It, could be we'll imagined therefore that the period known as the stone age must cover an enormous amount, of time. In that age Britain was joined to. Europe, and Europe to North Africa. What was now the British channel was a, level plain through whch flowed a river. It, could also be imagined that the temperature was t very different to what it was at. present. A great deall had been done by Archse- logists in France to obtain reliable in- formation as to. the different stages of the older stone age. He would give a list, of those stages through which man on the Continent of Europe had passed. Southern Europe had escaped the ice which came down from the north, whereas the greater part of Britain had been rendered un- inhabitable. Therefore Southern Europe offered better facilities for research, and the most, convincing results had come from that direction. For how long Britain was held by the ice was a, matter of con- troversy, but it was possible that there were periods during; which, owing; to the receding of the ice sheets, Britain was in- habited, and that during1 those periods the climate was a warm one. The first period he would like to refer to was the Challean, a, period best known through remains found in the South of France, consisting of implements, almond- like in shape, chipped out of flint, that being the material most in use. Even these, implements, however, showed quite clearly that they were not the beginning of man's chipping, but that at an even earlier age he must have made ruder im-. plements still. It might, naturally be asked what kind of life man lived in this epoch, the earliest of which anything could be stated with certainty. An answer might be found by examining the animals co-existing with man, and remain of which had been found in the South of France, and also in Britain in the Valleys of the Thames and Ouse. One anlmal was an ancient type of elephant, the elephas- antiquum, now extinct. There was also the cave bear, and the rhinoceros, both of which were extinct. The hippopotamus (now only found in tropical countries and rare even then), the hyaena, and a kind of horse akin to the tertiary type also in- habited the country. Bones of all those animals had been found with the stone implements, so that, it would readily he seen that the climate was a. tropical one, and that being so man probably lived among the trees growing' on the banks of rivers, in the same way that the primitive inhabitants of tropical countries lived at the present day. They lived by hunting and collecting berries which grew in the forests, for owing to the1 tropical countries illved, at the present day. They lived by hunting and collecting berries which grew in the forests, for owing to the tropical climate the earth was extreme- t4 ly fertile and life for man comparatively easy—the chief danger being from wild beasts. The second stage was the Neolithic epoch, the principal characteristics of which were better shaped and better finished implements of stone, showing t-halt man wa,s making steady progress. At the period the climate had grown colder, owing to. the advance of ice. from the north. This wa.s shewn by the animals from colder regions that began to haunt Southern Europe. Greatest among these. was the elephasprimigenius or mammorth, an animal with a body covered with wool, ,and of which whole bodies had been found ,embedded in the ice, in Siberia covered with woo-l. The pfresence of this animal indicated a colder climate. The rhinoceros and the tropical elephas- antiquus existed for a ti:me but gradually disappeared as also did the other tropical and sub-tropical animals. The third period was the Mousteriian, represented by the remains of man found in caves in the South of France. This was the period when man appears to have- first sought the shelter of caves for the sake of the warmth they afforded. Numerous caves had been found and ex- plored in the Dordogne district of South- ern France, and important discoveries made. The animal remans found in these caves included those of the mammoth, rhinoceros, cave bear (rather rare), grizzly bear, Irish Elk, and most im- portant of all the reindeer. During this period the tools of man underwent a great change. Instead of being heavy and clumsy they were lighter and flaked off on one side of the flint only. The use of such implements as scrapers was charac- teristic of this period. Man also appeared to have began to' make a greater use of wood, and later of reindeer horn and bone. Man used picks of reindeer horn for dig- ging flint- out of the chalk, and in various other ways. This period was represented in Britain by remains found in a cave near Torquay, and towards its close the steady development made by man was very ap- parent in the better implements he made j of flint, bone and horn. It was a period too during which he began to develop his artistic, faculties to cause figures of animals on b-one, and to draw. There were still extant wonderful drawings of animals which showed that man had realised that he had artistic, power1. What his object was could not. be ascertained, it might be magic- or it might be religion. But what- ever it was it ,shewed that man was a human being.—(Applause.) After a series of lantern slides illus- trating the implements of the Palaeolithic age had been thrown on the screen and de- scribed, the lecturer proceeded to deal with the Neolithic, age, and said that there was a great gulf to be bridged over be- tween the two, ages about whijch there had been a great- deal of controversy. As far as Britain was concerned the gulf still remained but Archaeologists in France had met with greateT- success. Recent discoveries there had proved that there was a gradual transition from the older to the newer stone age during which the man made steady progress. It was quite pos- sible that the connection between the two might be traced in Great Britain if by any chance a, cave was discovered in which similar remains to those found in the caves of France- existed. The gulf was created by the ice fields destroying all evidence of man in Wales. So that as far as the Principality was concerned the Neolithic was the, earliest period of which they had definite information. This period was represented in Wales by the ston$ structures known as Cromlechs. A great deal had been written about these- Crom- lechs, but the general view held was that they were the stone- frameworks of ancient burial places once covered over with earth and rubble. They were found in Wales wherever suitable stones were to be ob- tained. The stones were not quarried be- cause there were no metal implements in existence for quarrying, but were found on or near the surfac.e of the earth. Structures made- of these stones had been found in Angle sea, Carnarvonshire and North West, Merionethshire, Mid Wales, was scarcely represented, but, there were one or t-wo- traces in Cardiganshire, a, con- sidèrllible number in Pembroke, one or two, in Carmarthen, and others in Glamorgan and the peninsular of Gower. One undoubted Cromlech had been found in Monmouth, one or two in Bercon, and one solitary example in Herefordshire. During the va-st epoch of the newer stone age, in Wales the inhabitants practised the same method of burial as was practised over a, large part of Europe, and the mode of life was the same as in Western Europe. Similar, but more elaborate 'Cromlechs had been found in Brittany, Spain, Portugal, North Africa, Syria (but, singuilarly enough not, in Pales- tine) and even as far east, as India. Some- times Cromlechs had a hole bored in the upper stone one example of which exist- ed in Anglesey. The idea was that, the spirit of the, depiarted needed a hole through which it could pass in and out at will. That the, spirit of man existed after death and needed a certain amount of freedom. The Neolithic period differed very much from the older period man now ceased to exist solely by hunting, and in Wales the foundations of pastoral and agricultural life were lac-du Certain ani- mals were, domesticated, the dog being one of the first.-(Applause.) The sheep was also domesticated, and certain types of the ox and swine. The dwellings were pits, surrounded by low walls and covered over with branches of trees and rushes. Sometimes there was a central pole to support the roof, and even separate hults for cooking purposes. The huts were not unlike the "cwtiau gwydde-lo-d' (Irish huts) sometimes found on the Welsh mountains. Thosei huts belonged to a later age, but in type were not unlike those in use in Wailes in the newer stone age. At this time the Cromlechs were in the, nature of family graves, and the very fact that the dead were buried indi- cated that death was viewleid with some- thing akin to awe, and that the- heart of man then was akin to the heart of man now.—(Applause.) A series of slides illustrating the Neolithic age were then exhibited, includ- ing stone arrows, scrapers, bonei needles used for sewing skins, etc., after which the lecturer passed on to the bronze age, when man began to gam a, knowledge of medals. He had found that copper was too soft to use for cuttings purposes, and that it could be hardened with tin. Even before this time the- Assyrians had dis- covered a. method of hardening copper without the use- of tin, but. that process was unknown in Europe. It was still a puzzle where Europe obtained) its sup- plies of tin, but the balance of evidence was in favour of the British Islies. so that the, old idea that, Britain was the source of supply was once more gaining ground. The number of places in Europe where tiin was found were extremely small, and man needed a large supply for hardening his bronze- implements. It might be pos- sible therefore that Britain became an im- portant, metal working centre in very early days.—(Applause.) A large num- ber of bronze implements had been found in Wales, and moulds had also been dis- covered in which these implements had been cast. The kind of implements found inciluded hatchets, ch'sels, and occasion- ally knives, but the most common was the hatchet. At first the pattern was similar to those of the, stone age, but later it was fitted to a, handle, then it wps flanged, and finally the handle was fitted into the axe. Of implements of war. bronze spears, heavy and powerful. characteristic st-rai ght. two-e-d^ed swords and daggers had been found. A e-r article -fr.und was the safetv mil, and ether thjws I found 'led to the belief tn f't man had learnt to weave and wear cloth ma-die- of wool and flax. Another point worthy of note was that in the bronze age the mode of burial was almost completely changed. The method followed for the- most, part was cremation and the ashes deposited in cinerary urns, which were ornamented with pat- terns traced with nails when the clay was soft. In the ilate bronze and early iron age- the art of metal working in Britain had reached a high p--Itch of excellence both from a utilitarian and artistic point of view. Once the ancient inhabitants had acquired a knowledge of metals and of his artistic possibilities they made, great strides, and they in Wales had no reason to be ashamed of their ancestors.—(Ap- plause.) They had designed articles of great beauty and also learnt the process of enamelling long before the Romans set foot in the country, and the designs on ancient shields were- sufficient proof of their technical skill and refinement of taste.—(Applause.) A vote of thanks to the lecturer was accorded on the motion of Mr Wil- loughby Gardner, and in responding Prof. Anwyl referred to the great service, ren- deed by Mr Gardner in arc-hselogical re- search and his recent address on the ancient fortifications at Abergele.—(Ap- plause.)
THE! DEATH OF GLASLYN. Mr Richard Owen, better known under his nom-de-plume "Glaslyn," died on Sun- day at the Penrhyndeudraeth Workhouse at the age- of 79. For many years a quarry- man at Festiniog, he had in recent years fallen on evil days, and the impaired state 4 of his health compelled him to enter the workhouse. Glaslyn, who triumphed over educa- tional disadvantages in a remarkable man- ner, wrote much in prose and verse, and often competed successfully in Eistedd- fodau, whilst, in later years he acted as adjudicator on literary subjects. He was gifted with a, rare sense of style, and for many years was a valued contributor on a variety of literary and historical matters to the "Geninen," "Cymru," "Y Llenor," and "Y Traethodydd," as well as the lead- ing newspapers. He edited the first edi- tion of the works of Glasynys, and wrote several notable reviews, including one on "The economic position of the British labourer" at the request of Mr Fawcett, then Postmaster General. His poems in- clude an elegy, written at, the death of Prince Consort, that gained wide circula- tion at. the time.
"BOOKING SHORT." At Colwyn Bay on Saturday John Hol- lfiday, described as a draper's traveller and living at Hoole, Chester, was charged with travelling on the London and North-Wes- tern Railway between Abergele and Old Colwyn without having previously paid the fare and! with intent to avoid payment on Dec-ember 31st. Mr Eddy, of Euston, appeared for the prosecution. The defen- dant entered the 9 5 a.m. train at Rhyl, having booked to Abergele. Examiner Swann nipiped his ticket, and noticed at Abergele that Holliday did not get out. -He alighted at Llandudno Junction, and to the collector he gave a tourist ticket from Chester to Conway, which bore a nip showing that it, had been previously used as far as Old Colwyn. Thus the de- fendant did not pay for the portion of the journey between Abergele and Old Col- wyn. The de-fendanet- said it was entirely a slip on his part.—The Chairman (Mr T. G. Osborn) said the justices thought the offence a serious one in its influence on others. The fined the defendant 10s. and costs.
LLANRWST PIG MARKET. At Llanrwst Urban Council on Friday night the order issued by the Board of Agriculture and Fisheries, that the site of the pig sale must be paved or cemented, was considered. The- clerk read a notice from Mr Isgoed Jones that unless the Council ceased to hold the pig sale opposite his house he would apply for an injunction. Mr Jones's letter was laid upon the table, and the surveyor was in- structed, to measure a sufficient, distance opposite Planyndre. for a site, to submit an estimate of the cost of paving it, and to report on other suitable sites.
HOLYHEAD AND THE! MAILS. Considerable satisfaction is felt at Holy- head at the news which has just- come to hand that the Postmaster General has con- sented to receive a deputation on behalf of the Urban Council, who will place before the right hon. gentleman the claims of that town as a desirable port, for the landing of the American mails. The deputation will consist of Messrs T. Slater (chairman), R,. D. Roberts (Lloyd's agent), R,. Gordon Roberts, and the Clerk (Mir T. R,. E-vans). Mr Ellis Griffith, M.P., has given it as his opinion, after the claims of Holyhead had been fully pointed out to him, that they are such that the Postmaster General cannot possibly overlook, and in support of those claims a strongly-worded resolu- tion has been passed by the Llandudno Urban District Council.

PRUDENTIAL ASSURANCE COMPANY. ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL, YEAR. In dealing with the annual reports and accounts of the Prudential Assurance Company the commentator on insurance affairs finds it difficult to avoid the language of hyperbole, and critical re- straint is sometimes forgotten when an attempt is made to review its achieve- ments. But now-a-days we make no more efforts to express adequately our wonder- ment at the growth of the mighty Pru- dential or our admiration of the adminis- trative power which has made possible the most remarkable evolution recorded in the history of British insurance. Recognising the perfection of the organisation and the ever-growing prestige and attraction of the company, we take it for granted that each annual report, will announce a further great increase of business and an addition "beyond the dreams of avarice" to the funds. The Prudential, indeed, moves forward with giant strides, despite all adverse conditions of trade and labour, and its monumental growth is less a tri- bute to the splendid educative work in self-help which the company is carrying out than to the thniftful spirit of the nation, with the industrial life of which the Prudential is so completely inter- twined. The fact that in a year when trade- was bad, and, consequently, unem- ployment, rife, the Prudential added close upon £ 4.000.000 to its accumulated funds is a, practical indication of the company's popularity and its value to the nation which hardly requires comment. Coming to details, we learn from the sixtieth annual report., presented by the Directors at the meeting on the 4th inst., that in the Ordinary Branch the number of policies issued was 80,379, assuring the sum of £ 7,614,898; and the premiums re- ceived for these £ 440,376 • while the total premium incomle of the year was £ 4,616,337, showing an increase of £ 135,960 on Lhe corresponding figures for 1907. One aspect—a paramount feature of the company's usefulness to the com- munity as a distributing agency, bringing succour and relief to the bereaved, is to be seen in the statement as to claims paid during 1908. These amounted, in the ordinary branch alone, to the huge sum of £ 2,812,962, and it is significant to note that, while the families of 8,389 deceased persons were among the beneficiaries, no fezwer than 15,322 persons carrying en- dowment assurances lived to receive the fruition of their thrift. In the Industrial Branch the forward movement is once again intimaiea by striking figures. The premiums received during the year were £ 6,925,755, or £ 264,124 in excess of those received in 1907. In this branch the company paid out in claims a further sum of £ 2,670,345, including £ 72,696 the proportion of bonus paid since the date of the last annual meeting under the new bonus system which has imparted so great an attractive- ness to the company's industrial policies. How vast and far-reaching is the Pru- dential's protective influence among the Z, masses may be gathered from the fact that at the end of 1908 there were 17,963,127 policies in force on the books. A com- parison of this number with that of the total population of the country—sa}", roughly, 45,000,000—can hardly fail to "wake wonder from the depths" and fur- nish food for reflection. The Assets of the Company, in both branches, as shown in the balance sheet, were at December 31st last £ 71,958,859, the exact increase effected during the year being R-3,952,575-another "rec.ord" among the many which the Prudential has announced. That this fund gives abundant security for the fulfilment of the company's undertakings the valua- tion made by the Actuary at the close of the year under review proves most con- vincingly. Valued on the same stringent basis as in 1907 the company showed in the ordinary branch a surplus of £ 1,569,824 (including the sum of £ 284,941 brought forward from last year), and out of this surplus the Directors, continuing their policy of consolidation and caution, have added ;C250,000 to the investments reserve fund, which stood at the end of last year at £ 1,550,000. In the industrial branch the surplus disclosed by valuation is £ 1,240,966 (including -2403,739 brought forward), and out of this surplus £ 50,000 has been added to the reserve fund, making the latter at December 31st, 1908, £ 1,300,000. Policy- holders in the ordinary branch will note with satisfaction—but .certainly without surprise—that the reversionary bonus de- clared is at the same, handsome rate as in 1907, viz., 32s. per cent. on the original sums assured; the sum of £ 1,710,577 is set aside for distribution among policy- holders in this branch, those in the in- dustrial branch, the shareholders, and the superintendency and agency staff, in accordance with the regulations of the company under its special Act of Parlia- ment, leaving £ 764,243 to be carried for- ward— £ 311,789 in the ordinary branch, and £452,454 in the industrial branch. "All policies of over five years' duration which become claims, either by death or maturity of endowments, from the 5th of March, 1909, to the 3rd of March, 1910, both dates inclusive, will participate. This bonus will be paid by way of addi- tion to the sums assured of — £ 5 per cent, on all policies becoming claims upon which at least five but less than ten years' premiums have been paid; £10 per cent. on all policies becoming claims upon which at least ten but less than twenty years' premiums have been paid; and £ 12 10s. per cent. on all policies becoming claims upon which at least twenty years' premiums have been paid."
