ABERAYRON. TRINITY CHURCH.—The annual treat for the scholars of the Sunday School of the above Church will take place next Tuesd iy at Lam- peter. VISITOR' -T li ere is a good number of visitors in Aberayron at present, 0 chiefly of the countiy class. Several houses in the place have been engaged by English fam lies for the next few weeks, so there is every prospect of a good season before us. A TitF,.tT.Iberayroi is now so rarely visited by anything like a gJOd show, that a very larg j =1 cl nuiii er of people availed themselves of the opportunity offeied them last Saturday of seeing what was described as the "greatest show on earth," viz., Bostock <&; Bailey's Circus, Museum, Menagerie, and Hippodrome. People were c >ming into the town from all parts of the neigh- bourhood all day long, and it was admitted that they all had their money's worth. The show was undoubtedly the largest that has ever been seen here, the chief features being the menagerie and museum, the circus and hippodrome being nothing very superior. They gave two perfor- mances. Several thousands visited it during the day. The tent was erected in a ficid belonging to Mr Francis Evans, and which is suitably for that purpose. INTERMEDIATE EOUCATION. Vigorous efforts are now being made in the town to get one of the proposed intermediate schools located here, and the inhabitants show that they realise the impor- tance of the movement. If the decision of the Joint Education Committee will be made in favour of those towns which will show themselves most capable of public-spirited effort, it is confi- dently anticipated that Aberayion will stand an excellent chance. After the Joint Education Committee sat here on Thursday the enthusiasm of the inhabitants was thoroughly roused. A public meeting was held in the evening in the Assembly Room, which was full to overflowing, and the plan of campaign was discussed. The Rev W. O. Edwards, vicar, Mr Councillor John Huuh Jones, and Mr Evan Jones, Feathers' Hotel, were appointed to work the Aberayron district; while Dr Davies and Mr Thos. Davies, Compton House, were allotted the task of enlist- ing the aid of Llanon. Mr L. J. Roberts was re-appointed secretary, and Mr Thomas Hughes treasurer and we are glad to say that all are working indefatigably. At the meeting on Thursday evening over zEI50 were promised towards the erection of a building, and we under- stand that in two days the list had reached between £ 400 and R500. An appeal for £1,000 has been published, signed by the vicar, Messrs. J. H. Jones, Evan Jones, and L. J. Roberts, and we have no doubt that this will be obtained in a few days—a consummation devoutly to be wished.
