-+- THE PROGRESS OF RHOS. Sir-Your paper has always been of great interest to me, and I look forward to its weekly advent with a longing that amounts almost to impatience but I can- not recall, on the spur of the moment, any item in its columns that gave me more pleasure than your notes about the priority of Ruabon over Rhos in postal and other respects. Whenever I noticed it I could not help feeling that it was equivalent to making a dog's tail appear to be the principal part of the canine. It also reminds me of the story of the kind- hearted lady who asked the tramp if she could do anything for him. Yes, mad- am he replied I have a couple of coat buttons to which I should like you to sew a coat." It was a nervy suggestion on the part of the wanderer, but is it any less ridiculous than to regard a large com- munity like Rhosllanerchrugog as a tribu- tary appendage to a small parish like Ruabon-a place which long ago would have been lost in the shuffle were it not for the proximity of Wynnstay. the family I seat of one of the oldest Welsh families. While Ruabo 1 has been standing still, ¡ Rhos has developed into a thriving com- munity, which, were it located in America, would be populous enough to have a city charter, and, with its Mayor, Aldermen, and Councillors, have the power to ad- minister its own affairs, subject only to supervision by the Commonwealth. I have long since ignored the alleged sub. ordinate position of Rhos in my corres- pondence, and if all who are away would do the same, the old home would be ac- corded that individuality to which it is en- titled as a large progressive community. Hoping you will continue the good work of insisting that Rhos shall be given its due prominence until it ceases to be re- garded as one of the satellites of a dead I and almost buried little hamlet. Yours for the honour of Rhosllanerchrugog Cambridge, Mass. U.S.A. T. J. JONES.
