Catholic Church.—A considerable exten- sion to the fabric of the Church of the Holy Name is at present in course of erection. Coastguard Station. This structure is presenting a somewhat unwonted appearance which puzzles the casual observer, the reason being the temporary removal of the flagstaff from which the naval ensign is generally floating in the Abergwaunian breeze. Death.—It is our painful duty this week to chronicle the demise, at the early age of 29 years, ot Miss Mary Eliz. Evans, second daugh- ter of Mr and Mrs Henry Evans, Gwaun Lodge, Lower Fishguard, which sad event took place early on Monday morning last. Deceased bad been ailing for some time and had been confined to her bed but a very short time previous to her death, which came most unexpectedly to all. The funeral will take place on Thursday afternoon'at Hermon burying ground, of which place of worship che deceased was a member. Tabernacle Eisteddfod.—In consequence of the date originally fixed for the holding of this function clashing with the polling in the County Council contests, the eisteddfod-as will be seen from an advertisement in another column—has been postponed until ^Wednes- day, March 16th, whilst the dates-'ibr the closing of entries have been correspondingly extended. Schools Closed.—In consequence of the prevalence of influenza and whooping cough, the National and Council Schools were closed last (Tuesday) afternoon and will not re-open until Wednesday morning next week.

Dinas Hill Diversion.—The letter from Mr J C Yorke, J.P., withdrawing his offer of land for the execution of this project which-as previously recorded in these columns-was submitted to the last meeting of the Main Roads Committee, was read at Tuesday week's meeting of the County Council. We are, however, led to believe that there is yet a possibility of the original offer being re- newed. Cymmrodorion.—We wish to draw the attention of all Fishguard Welshmen to the meetings of the above Society. Great efforts have been made to secu £ the services o eminent lecturers to address the meeting during the present session, but for the last few weeks, the meetings have been very poor- ly attended.

The next meet- ing will be held this Thursday evening (Feb- ruary loth) at the Council School, at 8 o'clock when Mc Francis Green, St David's, will deliver a lecture on The antiquities of North Pembrokeshire. The lecture will be entire ly m English. Mr Green is well tilown asat Antiquarian and his lecture is sure to prove highly interesting. Admission will be free.

A discussion followed, and the lecturer was heartily thanked for his address.
