PENCADER. To the Editor of THE JOL-R-NAL. S.rR,-So nnny unfirotable reportf npon the above little village have been sent to your widely- circ-ilated p-tppr during the 1 two years rrnt the public may believe the place to be far behind the avcranrp of Wels'i village in "ivlli-nti-n. Un doubtedly it may be improved in many ways, but as it is, it has many." -elicit, features, and as f-ir as education is concerned, I venture to sny it stands L second to no other Welsu viliaLre of its sizt- A large [bHd school Wa- ol),n-,d here Uyeatsag., and two years ago a Grammar school was opened close by, which is already in a flourishing condi- tion, and promises to do well in the future. Here is an opportunity for a sharp boy to graduate in arts or in scieence without going from the place. Two matriculated from the Grammar School last January, and about half a dozen more are prepar- ing for the same next June. The Board School also has a splendid record, and has obtained excel- lent reports, and the highest grants on several occasions, if not every time. Miss Winnie Lloyd Jones, pupil teacher at this school, acquitted her- self very creditably at the Queen's Scholarship Examination last July. She stood Number 334 on the general list, and fifth on the Swansea list, there being over 1,500 successful candidates in the' First Division. It has also to be borne in mind that Miss Jonea did not complete her apprentice- ship as pupil teacher until this month. In addi- tion to the schools there are as many as six science classes in the place this winter—three at the Board and three at the Grammar School. Classes are held in the following subjectsMathematics, physiography, physiology, botancy, magnetism, and electricy, and heat. Young men of Pencader avail yourselves of the very rare opportunities eirered you, and do not allow your leisure hours (precious hours which you can never recall) escape without improving yourselves in some direction. Now that the subject of village libraries or reading rooms is so much talked and written about, may I, through the medium of your paper, call the atten- tion of the leading men of the district to the same. If properly conducted it would be a very great boon, as it might be the means of removing the noisy and drunken crowds that may now be seen on our high roads between 10 and 11 o'clock at night. Lay aside every party feeling, jealousy, pride, anxiety to be the leader, and let everyone do what he can to help in this noble cause. Yours, &c., TWELLT,

ANTI-WELSH.
