LLANGUNNOR. THE PARISH CHURCH.—Last Sunday evening, I had the pleasure of attending divine service at the above parish Church. Being informed that the service began at six o'clock, whereas it begins at 6.30, I reached there in very good time. The half hour was spent in looking over the Church- yard, which is kept in a neat and praiseworthy condition, and overshadowed with large and well developed yew-trees, whose massive boughs and heavy foliage lend an aspect at once inspiring and reverential to the whole place. Under the shade of these trees calmly lie the bodies of many thousands who have preceded us, and whose memories are kept alive by varied tablets erected over their resting places. That they are still held dear by the living is evidenced by the fact, th3t fresh wreaths are frequently placed on their graves by loving relations and friends. The service began punctually at 6.30 o'clock. The vicar (Mr Jones) who is, I believe, also the Rural Dean, occupied the pulpit. If he is not a brilliant and eloquent preacher, his hearers cannot but be deeply impressed with his Christian sentiment, his genuine earnestness and practical admonitions. The congregation was large and devout, and possessed the virtue of punctuality to a degree seldom met with in country parishes. The singing of the responses throughout being congregational hearty and well rendered, under the able leader- ship of the lady organist, to whose rare voice and musical proficiency I would imagine the Church owes much of her signal success in this direction. At the practice after the service, again, she was the principal instructor. It was gratifying to notice such a large number of the congregation, young and old, remaining behind for this, when the hymns, chants, etc., for the following Sunday were carefully practiced. One other noticable feature to be observed is that lay help is not "boycotted in this Church. An elderly gentle- man read both the lessons in a plain and distinct tone. This is as it should be, and the vicar is to be complimented on it. The Church at Llangunnor is decidedly in a healthy and flourishing con- dition.
