Two Brilliant young Rhosites. We are pieced that two more Rhos young men have left college having earn- ed their degree of B. A. with Honours. We allude to Mr John Thomas Jones, on- ly son of Mr and Mrs David Jones, John- son-street, Ponkey, and Mr Daniel Bertie Jones, fourth son of Mr and Mrs Edward Jones, Yale-street, Johnstown. The car- eers of these two young men have been somewhat remarkable. They have al- ways worked together since they were in the children's class at Penuel Sunday School, and have always been forward in trying the scriptural examinations held at that place, D. B. Jones having twice won the first prize offered by the Welsh Bap- tist Union of Wales, while J. T. Jobes came in a good second. In the competi- tion for the silver medal offered by the Gwynedd Temperance Association open to all Wales, J. T. Jones has twice come first, and D. B. Jones, once. In 1900 the two won the only County Scholar- ships offered. In 1903 they gained the senior certificates of the Central Welsh Board, afterwards being appointed pupil teachers at Rhos and Ponkey Council Schools. In June 1905 both passed the Matric of the University of Wales in the first class, and in December of the same year both were successful in the King's Scholarship exam and both obtained a first class. In October 1906 both entered R' the University of North Wales, and as; the end of their first year they shared be- tween them the two exhibitions offered tC the two highest students in the Day 4 Training Department. In June 1907 ain3 1908 they sat for the Inter and ordinary stages of the Welsh B.A. degree, botb passing with honours, and in the recent June exam, they completed their final f.of the B. A. degree. Specialising in Latin* Mr J. T. Jones obtained second class,boll- cuts, and Mr D. B. Jones third class hon.. ours. During their career in coHege" they have also passed the exam of the Board of Education for the Teacher's Cer-r tificate. Mr J. T. Jones is well known in Rho" and distirct asa rtciter, he being success* ful a few years ago in taking the tint; prizes for reciting at almost all the chief local eisteddfods. Nothir g succeeds Jike success, and we are pleased to knew tba-t: he has already been appointed out of many applicants, to be Assistant Masted at Denbigh County School, ccmme»ci«| £ at a salary of £ 110 per annum. Mr D. B. Jones is also well-known a a brilliant scholar, and has two.brotbertt in the teaching profession, one Head" master in South Wales, and the othes" Assistant Master at Lincoln. We heartily congratulate our fellofV townsmen on their brilliant success, anil' wish them God speed to attain yet highef positions which will biing more bonoue upon themselves, their birthplace, anit, their country.
