t" A GH OST STOUT. 1 Dr. Fowler, Bishop of Gloucester, In tnè early ^&rt of the eighteentli century, was ia believer in ap- i 3>aritions. The following conversatpn of the bishop Viiii Jli,ige is recor(le,]: "Since I saw you," said tlie lawyer, "I have had ocular dumuusiration of the existence of noc- luttial apparitions." ell am 1.:11141 you are becdhie a convert to truth; ^mt do you cay acttlal ocular demonstration? Let Siieknow tlie particulars of the story." Aly lord, I will. It was-let me see-last Thursday night, between the hours of eleven and twelve, hut nearer the latter than the former, as I lay sleeping in n:y bed, I was suddenly awakened by ttttunconnnon noise, and heard something COlli- ing upstairs and stalking directly towards my room; the door Hying open I drew back my curtain, and taw a faint glimmering light enter my chamber." "Of a lilne colour no doubt?" "The light was of a pale blue, my lord, and fol. lowed by a tall meagre personage, his locks hoary Willi age, and clothed in a long loose gown, a lea- thern girdle was about his loins, his beard thick and grizzly, a large fur tap on his heal, and a long Staff in his hand. Struck with astonishment, I re- mained for some time motionless and silent the figure advanced, staring me full in the face I tlMtu said, Whence, and what art thou ?"

PONTYPRIDD LOCAL BOARD. THE ERECTION OF THE FREE LIBRARY. The fortnightly meeting of the above authority was held at the Board's Offices, Pontypridd, on Thursday last, when there were present :— Rey. D. W. Williams, M.A., chairman, Messrs. James Koberts, D. Rowland, B. Jones, W. W. Phillips, 8i"i John James with Mr Ii. LI. Grover clerk Mr J. prague, deputy clerk and Mr E. A. Rees, surveycr. THE FREE LIBRARY. The Clerk read a letter from the committee of the free library, accompanying the accepted plan of the proposed new buildings, and askiug the Board to D"SS the same. Hevnnteen tender, had also been received, the committee recommending the ac- ceptance of the lowest, iil759, sent in by Mr Michael JuliaD, Pontypridd. Mr Phillips mentioned as a singular fact that tbii teen of the tenders were within £ 16 of the crigir,al estimate, prepared by Mr D. Rowland and himself. Mr howlftnd asked if it was fair to accept the plnDrf suggested, when the building could nut be raised for the amouat at first stipulated, viz. £ 1.500. Mr Phillips The work cannot be done under X2.000, as extras will surely be incurred by the I contractor. Architects as a rule will not guaran- tee their bill of quantities. Mr Roberta and Mr Jcneø were of opinion that 6 ctroa could be avoided. The Cleik ignici in any case they would be obliged to have a loan ilor the amount le- qnired. Mr L. Gordon Lenox, J.P., chairman of the free library committee, and Mr W. Jones Powell, secretary, wc-re here called in, and the former gentleman detailed the various deliberations which the committee bad gone through, in con- nection with the preliminary arrangeanenta it view of the erection of the free library. Be said they had received eleten sets of plane, the oc submitted to the Board that day being re- garded as the moat acceptable, considering the growing importance of the town and district. One of the principal advantages in connection with the building at recommended was that the whole of the library rooms could be supervised by the librarian from his room, and this wculd avoid the necessity-of appointicg sub-librarians. Mr Jobliaa's tender was £362, or 17 per cent, below the average, and he (the speaker) hoped the Boaid would endorse the proposal oltbeeom mittee by accepting that tender. As to the site, although some people thought a better one could be obtained, he thought they should congratulate themselves upon seeming for nothing eucha handsome piece of ground, and it would ill be- come the town to place thereon a building leas handsome than the one adopted by the committee. In regard to the question of money, they had not yet canvassed for subscriptions, but thieugh the generosity of the chairman of the Board and others they bad obtained voluntary promises to tbe extent of about JE400, and when the committee canvassed he hoped they would be able to seeure another £ 400 ort5OO. The amount required by the committee was 22,200, and they proposed that JB1,500 of that amount be obtained by way of loan. This sum, spread over a period of thirty years, could be repaid at the rate of M a year and interest, the latter, at 3i per cent., representing AU per annum. There would, shortly be an in. crease ia the value of the assessment of the district by means of new railways and eollieriea, and this faet would tend to reduce the proportion of the rate. The Chairman said they ought to oonsider whether they should acoept the plans proposed by Mr Lenox, and borrow the money. It was a large sam certainly, but they could see it would be a steadily decreasing burden, and intended for a very good eauee indeed. (Hear. bear). Mr Hoherts had great pleasure in proposing that Mr Julian's tender be accepted, subject to hia find- ing satisf actory sureties. The whole matter bad undoubtedly received the carefal attention of the frt-e library committee, and tore-open it now, as suggested by Mr Rowland, would be a waste of valuable time. Messrs James and Jones simultaneously seconded the motion, which was carried ananimously, tbe approval of the Local Government Board to be obtained thereto. Mr Lenox thanked the Beard for the kind way in which they had dealt with the matter. The free library so far was a great success. There was an average attendance at the reading rooms daily of 400. and 2 000 volumes had bet n issued from the lending library during the last three or four months. The next step for the committee to take was to canvass the public for subscriptions. On the motion of Mr Phillips, seconded by Mr Jones, measures were ordered to be taken at once with the vieit of obtaining the loan. The deputation then withdrew. TUB LITSHOX LITISATIOir. The Clerk remarked in oonneotion with the reeent law dispute between Mr D. Leyshon, grocer, and the Board, that the Board were gainers by the issue, as the stop* had been declared public property, and Mr Leyshon would not be entitled to compen- sation for the intended public improvements to the same. The Board would thus save the 2150 cltimed. He would advise the Board now to carry out the intended improvements to the steps, tend order Mr Leyshon to put the pavement in proper condition as a private improvement. Mr Roberta opposed the clerk's suggestion with regard to the footwav. They had better put the steps back in precisely the same condition as they were originally, thereby avoiding thM>oSsibility of farther litigation. The Clerk '1 he steps footway has been dis- tinctly declared to be public property. Mr Roberts doubted this, as he understood the Judge to state that if the entrance to the ware- bouse was in erfered with by the Board, it would render them liable to further proceedings by Mr Leyshon. The Clerk: He will have no right of action, but he may claim a compensation. Mr Roberts proposed that the steps fce restored to their former condition, snd not give any advan- tages whatever to Mr Leyshen. Mr Phillies agreed with the motion, and the Isame having been seconded by Mr Rowland, it was carried. Mr Leyshon: If you do this, I will claim com- pensation for the Board's interference with the adjoining property. Mr Roberts said the Board were doing their beet to meet the public convenience, but they seemed to have been opposed tooth and nail, and the sym- I pathy of the public was with those who took action against them. The Board had better discontinue the carrying out of all public improvements until the ratepayers themselves saw the necessity for them. Mr Phillips said public feeling was certainly against the Board in the Khondda Ward. The Surveyer was then ordered to carry out the terms of the resolution, and also to take up the kerbiug in fror t of Mr Leyshon's premises. mt W. V. BIZB AND THB BOARD. The Clerk stated that the Board could proceed against Mr W. V. Rees. ironmonger, for obstruc- tion of pavement, under the Towns Improvement I Clauses Act, which would afford them stronger legal grounds than the Towns Police Clauses Act. He admitted, however, that the pavement was un- doubtedly private property. He had bad a consul- tation en the matter with Mr Rees and his solicitor, Mr Walter H. Morgan, with the result that Mr Rees was willing to dedicate the pavement to the public use, provided he was allowed the right of using a twelve-inch width of the same for the storage of lead coil. Mr Phillips, wishing to avoid further litigation against the Board, proposed that Mr Rees'offer be accopted, and that £ 5 be paid towards the law costs a'r> ady incurred by Mr Rees. This was seconded by Mr Jones, and carried, Mr Leysbon bving the only dissentient. TH: WATBRWOBKS COMPANY. A letter wis read from the Waterworks Com. pany expressing the opinion that the water in their reservoirs was ample to meet possible emergencies. The company's reservoirs during the late dry weather were full, whereas those of other water- works oompanies were not so. THE BUTE DOCKS BILL. The Clerk stated that Mr Linton, olerk ta the Mountain Ash Local Board, had suggested the advisability of the four local boards of the Rbondda, Aberdare, and Merthyr Valleys, affected by the opera- tion of the above measure, being represented in their opposition thereto by two counsel and two parlia- mentary agents, and recommended that the Ponty- pridd Board join hands in the matter with the Mountain Ash Board. Mr. Roberta objected, and suggested that all the Boards unite in the employment of counsel. Mountain Ash district was very small compared with Y stradyf odwg. The Clerk: We oppose simply in regard to the rivers, and Mountain Ash has an interest in the Clydach as well as the Taff. !hi 1'=:, 2 b After a further conversation, it was resolved, on the motion of Mr. D. Leyshon, to invite the eo-opera- tion of the Ystradyfodwg Board, and if they declined that they join with Mountain Ash. A COMPLIMENT TO THB GAB COMPANY. Mr. Roberts moved a vote of thanks to the Gas Company for the liberal manner in which they had lately dealt with the Board, by allowfng a reduction in the price of gas, and also erecting two handsome pillars on the Rhondda Bridge. The latter were quite an ornament to the town. The Chairman seconded with great pleasure, re- marking that it was the first time for such a compli- ment to bp paid by them to the Gas Company. The motion was agreed to, and the proceedings thereupon concluded.
