YSTRAD. TEMPLE BAR TROTTING MATCIIES.-The annual trotting, steeple, and flat races ramp off at Temple Bar on Wednesday week. The m.at.ier on the whole was favourable, but the rather heavy down- pour of rain in the morning damped the ardour of a few, and the roads were not, in consequence, in a very satisfactory state. The course was heavy and stiff, but fortunately there were not many "spills." The judges were as follows Cobs, Messrs D. Evans, Pantrhewfacli B. Lloyd, Cefn and J. Thomas, late of Cwmbwch. Hounds, Messrs J. Jenkins, Glanwern, and J. Jenkins, Llainmanal. MrS. Davies ably fulfilled the duties of starter. The awards made were :— Cobs 1, Mr D. Jenkins, Glanwern 2, divided between Messrs D. Thomas, Llysfaen, and T. Jones, Caerfoel. Best hound under 12 months old and belonging to the Neuaddfawr kennels 1, Mr E. Hughes, Nanthenfoel; 2, divided between Messrs J. Davies, Rhywonen, and J.
