LOCAL AND DISTRICT NEWS. Just now there is hardly any water in the Rheidol. On Monday a thick mist, of a very white nature, covered Pen Dinas and other hills, and on Tuesday a fresh breeze sprang up, which has continued up to the time of going to press. During the last three weeks excellent progress has been made with the masonry at the end of the harbour pier, and a large number of men are at work during all available hours. Excavations have been commenced at the bridge, but a good deal of delay has arisen, and inconvenience has been caused to the contractors. The contract has not yet been signed. J. James, of Alltglaise, Clarach, who went in for his second examination at the Queen's College, Lon- don, has been successful coming out the first in honours on the list out of 117 candidates. Mr James was formerly a scholar of Mr Edward Jones, Grammar school, and a student of the University College of Wales. A new style of conveyance, which has been christened the "Jubilee break," has been built by Mr Richard Jones, North Parade. It is a large handsome carriage, with covered top and open sides, which can be closed by means of curtains when required. The advantages of this arrangement are self-evident, and it is probable that other carriages of similar construction will be required for use during the summer season.
