Tiax ROYAL DUEL.-The duel between the Count of Turin and Prince Henry of Orleans was fought at five o'clock on Sunday morning, in the Bois de Marechaux, at Vaucresson. The weapons chosen were swords, and the encounter was of a most determined character, lasting 26 minutes. Prince Henry of Orleans received two serious wounds, one on the right shoulder and the other on the right side of the abdomen, and the Count of Turin was wounded in the right hand. Prince Henry was taken to the residence of Due de Chartres. The doctor states it will be two or three days before he can pronounce a definite opinion as to the gravity of Prince Henry's injuries. MOBBING EISTEDDFOD ADJUDICATORS.—An eisteddfod, which was- well attended, was held on Saturday in a marquee on a field adjoining Llandebie railway station. The chairman for the day was Dr. F. G. Southern, Pantyrodin. The adjudicators for music were Mr. J. T. Rees (Aberystwyth) and Mr. W. Thomas (Treorky). Dr. Gurnos Jones (Pile), the adjudicator in the other competitions, acted as conductor. In the second choral competition the test piece was Blodeuyn Bach.' Three choirs competed, viz. Ammanford (conducted by Mr. T. J. Rees), Goppa (Mr. D. Thomas, Pontardulais) and Llandebie (Mr. John Lewis). The prize was awarded to Ammanford. In the male voice com- petition, Wyr Philistia,' three parties entered the lists, viz.: Tycroes United (conducted by Mr. Lloyd, Pontycearc), Glandulais (Mr. J. Rees, Pontardulais, and Llandebie Youngsters (Mr. W. J. Lloyd.) The prize was withheld by the adjudicators on the ground that the singing of the choirs was so poor. This led to a hostile demonstration on the part of a large section of the audience, the disturbance lasting over a quarter of an hour, and Mr. Rees was prevented from giving his decision in detail in the chief choral competition. At the close of the eisteddfod the adjudicators were followed to the station by a large crowd, hooting and jeering, but no attempt was made at personal violence. A X20 prize was offered for the best singing of Bendigedig fyddo Arglwydd Dduw Israel,' by John Thomas. The competing choirs were :— Hebron, Clydach (conducted by Mr. R. Davies), Ammanford (Mr. Walters), Pontardulais United (Mr. D. Morris), Dyffryn. Tycroes (Mr. W. Lewis), and Babell, Cwmbwrla (Mr. David Wil- liams.) The prize was awarded to Ammanford.
