He took great interest n education and often visited the school and rendered material assistance to the teachers. He also mentioned his open, straightforward way, never fearing to speak his mind.—Mr T E Tibbott, Trawscoed, said he did not believe in praising a man to his face. Tell his faults in his face and talk of his merits in his absence. Still he must say of Mr Jones that he found him most honest in speaking plainly, and a better neighbour he could not wiah.-Miss E Gittins sang "Home, sweet home." A vote of thanks to the chairman was passed, and the meeting was concluded by singing God save the King." It is not often that a clergy- man is so beloved of his parishioners as Mr Jones was, and the general good wishes of the Carno people accompaay him and his family to Llannor, where they removed on the 16th. After the meet- ing Mr Jones invited about two dozen friends to dine with him and his family at the Aleppo Inn, where M excellent repast was prepared by Mrs Wilson.

Vagrants relieved during the fort- night 38, against 18 for the corresponding period of last year. The Master reported that there were 40 paupers in the House as compared with 44 during the same period of 1900. GIFTS FOR TH* INMATES. Mrs Williams, of Trinidad House, had sent a parcel of periodicals for the paupers, and the Wesleyan Church presents of flowers for the sick. The usual votes of thanks were passed by the Board. RICH PAUPERS. It was reported that a pauper in the House was the owner of Xig which was deposited in the Post Office. He bad been an inmate of the House for over 12 months and towards this the Guardians decided to keep £5. Another case was that of a woman, also an inmate, who had £ 14 in a bank. The Board had up to the present failed to secure the money, but negotiations were still pending. BARD TIMES. Mr Hugh Hughes stated that he and the reliev- ing officer found a family living in a pig stye. They were brought down and put in a common lodging house. The husband, however, died, and the family were allowed 6s per week, but they went awav leaving a portion of their lodgings unpaid.- Mr George Fossett Roberts said that Mr Hughes bad gone to a, good deal of trouble in the matter and was deserving of their thanks.—The Board decided to pay the money expended by Mr Hughes to defray the lodgings. OUT-DOOR RELIEF. The next matter was a notice of motion by Mr Salmon that all persons over 70 years of age should not receive less than 6s per week, and that the minimum amount to all persons under that age should be 38 per week.—Mr Salmon asked leave to adjourn it because he was not prepared to go on with it that day.—Mr J B Morgan gave notice that that day fortnight he would move that the Board do away with the rule that the widow should keep one child, and that in future every case of relief should be taken on its merits.—Mr Salmon There is no rule it is only an understanding. There was no other business.
«. — AMERICAN v BRITISH TRADE. SIR T. LIPTON'S OPINION. Sir Thomas Lipton, who is visiting Chicago, asked to give his opinion why the Americans had beaten the English in so many lines of commerce and manufacturing, replied:—"The Americans make foreign trade by selling people what they want. Englishmen lose by forcing upon people things they want people to want. The Americans pay higher wages, but more than make up for it by using improved machinery. As a result they find a market in England for everything they manufacture and easily undersell us at home." • A i-

FOOTBALL NOTES. [BY HALI?-BACK "] Last Saturday the match between Towyn and Aberystwyth proved a tight one, the teams being very evenly matched. I noticed three new faces in the Towyn team, namely, Die Evans, Jno Morris, and E V Joues, whilst Lewis Pughe, Joe Edwards, and Archie Evans appeared for the first time this season. (For the home team Lewis Pughe and Joe Edwards played a grand defensive game although the latter was not in his original position. He filled up the post of left-back very creditably. Lewis Pughe was always safe and many times he relieved the home team when the College looked dangerous. Of the half-backs Harry Cotton was undoubtedly the best, being always in his right place at the proper moment. I don't think that I am mistaken in saying that he was the best man on the field. John Morris, one of Towyn's African heroes, was also called upon to represent his town, filling the position of left-half. With a little pree^ice this man will make a splendid half-back. E V Jones though very light and young was equal to his partners and played a grand game at right-half. The forwards lacked combination and were altogether hampered by the centre-forward, Glad- stone Davies, who was injured, and was practically unable to do anything. The right-wing (George Davies and A Evans), make a splendid pair. This was by far the best wing on the field. E L Jones as inside-left played a good game, but his partner David Evans, proved a failure. The custodian, W Jones, played a good game, saving one or two splendid shots. The College forwards were completely outplayed by the Towyn defence. They also lacked combination. Amongst them I saw Llew Williams, who formerly played for the Towyn team, and he was undoubtedly a very dan- gerous forward, but he was closely watched by J Morris and L Pughe. The College left-wing was weak, but nevertheless they played a very good game. In the College half-back line tha three played an excellent game, and the backs were a splendid pair, whilst the custodian saved many difficult shots. I think that the result of one to none in favour of Towyn is a fair indication of the game. Towyn have been fortunate in the draw for the Welsh Senior Cup, having seenred a home match, their opponents being Aberystwyth. The team have long wished to meet Aberystwyth in the Cup Competition and now that they have been so fortu- nate they should turn out and practise. A great, improvement on Saturday's form will be expected ere this match comes off. Last Saturday Aberystwyth had Portmadoo as visitors and, judging from Saturday's result-a drawn game—Aberystwyth must improve if they intend to come to Towyn and secure) a victory. Dolgelley played Corwen in the Junior Cup com- petition, the scoring in this game being rather high for a Cup match. The Dolgelley team won by 5 to 3. Next Saturday Towyn play Dolgelley at Towyn. I hope that the Towyn team will turn out in full to wipe off the crushing defeat Towyn sustained at
Dolgelley. MACHYNLLETH FOOTBALL. (D.T.H.) The First Round of the Junior Welsh Cup has come and gone, and my wish of last week has been granted. Machynlleth were fortunate enough to win by three goals to one, so that they now step boldly into Round No. 2. Machynlleth were decidedly lucky to win, and the Newtown Excelsiors decidedly unlucky to lose. A draw would have been a fair index of the merits of the two rivals, slightly in favour of the Excelsiors. Old Peter Vaughan, the groundsman, and a gang of young- sters from the town (would be Internationals) had been at it busily all the morning getting the grassy meadow into fighting trim ready for the "grate fite," but although he and his men worked well, they failed to dislodge the long grass in the two corners. About half-past two the Dovey lads robed in their new blue shirts and knicks were at it pum- melling as hard as they could at the goal, having pot-shots on their own. It would have been well for them had they restrained their impetuosity — thereby reserving their strength— for they wanted it badly before the end of the grim struggle. Machynlleth kicked.off with a strong sun and a stiff breeze against them. The forward move of the homesters was rudely checked by the supple. jointed well-knit athletes from Newtown, who made a nasty rush for the home net, but fortunately old Owen Morris and Thomas were in a good humour, and returned the leather with thanks. The home. sters were a long time before they could" feel their legs" and know their whereabouts. Indeed I feared we were in for a good drubbing, but soon our forwards relieved the suspense by sailing gaily to the other end, Dick Hughes, Vaughan and Bob Humphreys showing a nice turn of speed. Of combinalion there was next to none amongst the home forwards-many a golden opportunity having been missed through being too great Conservatives." No good ever comes of a player keeping the ball too much to him- self and trying to show off" to the gallery. When a player is in possession, and has made what nse he can of it instantly he perceives that he is in danger of being robbed. Firnt blood was drawn by New- town-a very soft thing indeed. I will not be too hard on Owen for he more than retrieved himself before the end of the game. After a hot attack by the homesters, a comer was taken by vaughan, who placed it beautifully, and Dick Hughes, getting his head under it, popped it into the net. Half- time came-one goal each. The pace had been hot and the defence on both sides very severely tested. Soon after the restart, a hot shot from Morgan brought the Newtown custodian on his knees and he saved magnificently, but Bob Humphreys was on the spot and getting his toe on to the leather round an opponet's leg, tapped it gently into the net, goal number two for the homesters. In about eight or ten more minutes, a third goal was notched, the ball rolling very slowly indeed past the custodian. The two custodians could now shake hands as being very kind and generous men. From this point in the game, the homesters quite broke down, and had the backs and goalkeeper been less reliable, ruin must haye been the result. Luckily, Newtown failed to score, and the game ended three goals to one in favour of Mach- ynlleth. Newtown experienced the hardest of luck and deserved to score at least twice if not three times. Both teams were dead beat when the final whistle went, the heavy grass being responsible quite ad much as the hot pace. So far as scientific play is concerned, it was a very poor game, but with respect to freedom from roughness, the exhibition of good temper, and real hard work it was a splendid game from start to finish. Mr Smith refereed with his usual fairness and justice. Dr Davies was linesman. The Uaiversity College of Wales eleven from Aberyst. wyth are due here on Saturday. The County School eleven, which is an exceedingly strong one this year, entertain the Aberystwyth County School eleven also on Saturday on the School ground.

THE WELSH CUP. DRAW FOR THE SECOND ROUND. A meeting of thelCouncil of the Football Associa- tion of Wales was held at Chester on Wednesday evening. The draw for the second round of the senior cup competition resulted as follows :-Port- madoc and Carnarvon byes, Chester v Broughton United, Wellington and Welsbpool byes, Towyn v Aberystwyth, Newtown v Llandrindod Wells, and Aberamon v Porth or Barry.
WELSH JUNIOR CUP. NEWTOWN UNITED v. SHREWSBURY BARRACK ROVERS. Played at Newtown on Saturday. The teams were as follows :— ROVERS. Goal, Grieves; backs, Griffiths and Croxford; half-backs, Mailing, Logan and Forrester; forwards, Jones, Pritchard, Horley, Stevenson and Yates. UNITED. Goal, Davies backs, J Edwards and Townsend half-backs, E Evans, S Morgan and W Haines; for- wards, E Humphreys, J Jones, C Humphreys, Smout. and Bevan. The visitors won the toss and selected to play with the wind and sun in their favour. The soldiers kept play for a few minutes in the United part of the ground, after which Grieves was fully occupied for some time. The visitors had a corner, and from one of these Logan scored. Immediately from the restart the United forced a corner but this was got away, and a final shoi by Smout was put behind. MorganstoppedHorleyinmidneldand returned the ball well into goal, a fruitless cornet ensuing. The military had another spell of press- ing, and secured a second goal. After this the United had hard lines in not scoring, W Haines and J Jones being very near. The homesters secured another corner, but this was got out of a scrimmage, but play still ruled in the visitors' quarters, owing to a foul being given against them. The soldiers however presented a very stubborn defence to the onslaughts of the enemy, and kept out the invaders for a time.. The repeated attacks however had a reward and just before the call of half-time Haines scored a good goal for the United. Restarting the United had much the best of matters and after a lot of pressing equalised. Give and take play followed chiefly in the Rovera'*territory, and the United had many very good tries at goal, but Croxford played a very good defensive game. About ten minutes from time the Rovers got up the field and looked as if they were going to take the lead, but they were driven back and a foul for the United right under the bar of their opponents' goal seemed certain to be converted but the ball was placed in goal without being played by a second player. Two further corners fell to the United but these also were got away. Still press- ing Bevan for the homesters got two goals and made the game secure for his side, the United eventually winning by 4 goals to 2.
