DOLGELLEY. LECTURE.-Uuder the auspices of the C.M. Liter. ary society an interesting meeting was held at the Bethel Schoolroom on Friday evening. A Lecture was delivered by Mr R C Evans, Enion House, on John Bunyan," and was illustrated by lime-light views. The lecture was a decided success. THE REV AERON JONES.-A large number of our readers will no doubt remember the Rev Aeron Jones who conducted the pastorate of Tabernacle here with conspicuous ability, from 1869 to 1872. Years ago he gave up his ministerial duties, but preached here and there. A few weeks back while staying at Llanwrtyd Wells, he was seized with a paralytic stroke, which has rendered him absolutely helpless. He is at present under the care of Mrs Lloyd Davies at Llandeilo. Much sympathy is felt. RESIGNATION.—We understand that the Rev J Walters, Brithdir, intends to resign his post a pastor of the three churches of Brithdir, Rhydymain, and Tabor. Mr Walters has been connected with these churches for the last 20 years, during which time he has worked most harmoniously with the mem- bers, who deeply regret to part with his services, but trust that he may be spared many years of use. ful work. FOOTBALL.-Dolgelley journeyed to Corwen on Saturday, to meet the homesters in the replayed tie of the Welsh Junior Cup. The first match which was played on the Marian at Dolgelley, ended in a win for the homesters of 5 goals to 3, but was dis- qualified by the Welsh Association. A good team had been selected, but they failed to reach expecta- tion, and were defeated by two goals to one. COOKERY. -In teresti n g cookery demonstrations have been held here a'; the Public Rooms, during last week by Miss Olga Thwaites, of the Inter- national School of Cookery, Liverpool. A series of lectures was given afternoon and evening, and followed with much interest. SERVICES. Services were held on Sunday, as follows — Tabernacle, Rev W Pari Huws; English Congregational, Rev H N Henderson; Salem, Rev David Jones, Garegddu; Bethel, Rev R Morris, M.A., B.D.; English Methodist, Rev T E Jones, Bala; Ebenezer (Wesleyan), Rev D Williams; Judah (Baptist), Rev R G Roberts, pastor. VISIT OF GENERAL BADEN-POWELL.-The resid- ents were startled on Thursday with the report that the famous hero of Mfifeking was staying at Nannau, and that he was travelling under the assumed name of 001 Stevenson. The rumour proved to be correct, for on Friday, the General paid a short visit to the town, and chatted with some of the townspeople, before leaving by the afternoon train for Blaenau. Owing to the short time allowed there was no attempt at a demonstra- tion, as the majority of the inhabitants were not aware of what had transpired until too late. HOCKin MATCH.—A hockey match was played here on Saturday between a team of ladies repre- senting Aberystwyth College and a team drawn from Dr Williams's School. The game, which was a closely contested one, ended in a draw of one goal each. K CYCLIST COMPANY.—The following promotions and appointments have been sanctioned in the K (Cyclist) Company 3rd V.R. Royal Welsh Fusiliers: Cyclist John Humphreys to be sergeant, Corporal H R Jones lance-sergeant, Lance-Corporals W E C Owen and R Jones to be corporals, and Cyclists J F Arnfield, D Hughes, and D T Owen to be lancer t corporals. The first complete year of the com- I pany's existence ends this month, and it now possesses a total enrolled strength of eighty-two officers and men. Of those seventy-eight are efficient, tifteen have the markman's qualifications and four are serving in South Africa. With a muster of sixty-five under canvass this company was the strongest cycle corps in the Welsh Border Brigade's camp at Towyn, a fact which is credit- able when it is remembered that so far no prize fund has been raised. The general average in musketry during the year has been remarkably good, considering tl e difficulties that have been met with in connection with range accommodation. For the future, it is hoped that the Company's range -for which ground has been secured in this locality -will be available, so that members may obtain plenty of private practice before doing their class firing. The corps will be open for recruits after November 1st, and as the number is nearing the maximum establishment allowed the men desirous of joining are requested to apply as early as possible to Sergeant-Instructor Cox, Headquarters, Dolgelley. Recruits must provide their own bicycles and should be able to pass the physical standard required for the regular army. BOARD OF GUARDIANS.—SATURDAY. Mr Cadwaladr Roberts in the chair.
