Postcard Craze.—At one time the practice of sending annonymous post cards was very prevalent in the town, but a few exposures served to cheek the habit. Now, however, complaints are again received of a revival of the pernicious habit. It is useless individuals trying to hide their identity in carry out this practice particularly when the recipients are annoyed as in the case under notice. There- fore, it would be to the discretion of the underhanded individuals if they ceased the ignoble method to gain a specific objective. At a meeting of the County Council on Tuesday last, the Chairman said they had held an inquiry at Fishguard touching an application for urban powers. In his opinion the inquiry was very satisfactory, and he hoped this time the Committee would be able to recommend a boundary and be able to grant the application, and that in a very short time this question would be finally settled.
