The surveyors' reports as to the condition of the roads in their respectiTe districts were read.— There was a conversation as to the state of a road in Llangwyryfon and Mr E. J. Evans proposed that an extra man be placed on it during the winter.— On the suggestion of Mr J. Morgan, the Surveyor was a-ked to report a* co whether he could arrange to place a workman on the road without engaging f ( an extra hand.—In regard to the road betveen Bwlchnantyrarian and Hengwm, Mr John Morgan said it was in a disgraceful state and suggested that the workman who was Employed on it for I certain days of the week should be employed on it I regularly. He added that Mr Gibson said it was 1 unworthy of the name of road.—The Chairman ( supported the suggestion which was agreed to There being need of stones in the district of Mr Hughes, the surveyor, he was instructed to make 1 enquiries as to where stones could be obtained.— Mr James said he gave notice to the surveyors that they should get all the hedges in their districts pruned, observing that the bad state of the reads in ] many phces was due to this not being done. -The I Chairman concurred. THE ALLEC-ED ENCROACHMENT. The Surveyor (Mr Edwards) reportedthattheCom- j mittee appointed to visit the spot near Nantfallen ( where theTe WM alleged to be an encroachment on ( the part of T. Lewis by conveying water across a road to work a new water wheel had met.—Mr D. Morgan, chairman of the Committee, said every- thing had been put right. The water was now con- veyed in a cast-iron pipe under the road.—In reply ( to Mr J. Morgan, Mr Morgan said the man in- tended covering the water wheel.—It was agreed, on the proposition of Mr James Jones, that the Clerk should draw out an agreement by the next meeting, to be sigoed by the owner, by which he would undertake to make good any damage which might occur. LLANRHYSTYD. The Surveyor for this district reported that a new footbridge wag needed over the Mabws and re- pairs to anotner footbridge in the same parish.- The Surveyor was authorised to carry out the work on the proposition of Mr J. Jones. THE EMPLOYMENT OF WORKMEN DURING THE SUMMER. Mr Richard Jenkins again brought forward his motion that the workmen should cease to be em- ployed during the summer except in cutting and carrying stones and on very wet weather.—Mr Jenkinssaid as far astheworkmenin hisdistrictwere concerned, he did not see what they had to do. The other day, he and Mr James, the auctioneer, watched a workman walking along the road with a shovel in his hands with nothing to do but to throw an occasional unscotched stone off the read. They watched him and saw that he had nothing else to do. He did not want to name anybody, but he knew other men who did no work.—Mr Hughes, the surveyor, said he cruld give an explanation of Mr Jenkins's story. The man Mr Jenkins saw was cutting stones by the yard and having finished one heap had been told by him (the Surveyor) to start another a distance away. He was then going to the other heap and whatever time he wasted in the way described by Mr Jenkins was his own time. He was doing what he need not have done in his own time.-The Chairman said it showed the man took an interest in the road and he deserved their thanks. Mr Jenkins said Mr James and himself looked carefully to see whetner there was another heap of stones and they did not see one.—The Chairman said the Board could easily see by the Labour sheets whether the man was working by the yard or was paid by the day. — The Chairman (after a pause) Do you make any proposition, Mr Jen- kins ?--Nlr Jenkius said he proposed that the men should not work during the summer, except on the occasions h had enumerated. — No one seconded the proposition which therefore fell to the ground. THE PENLANBICA ROAD. The letter received from the Ponterwyd Parish Council at the last meeting and adjourned asking the Council to take over this road was again read. J. Morgan supported the application for the same reasons as he had given at a previous meet- ing.-Mr E. J. Evans seconded the proposition on the understanding that the usual rules as to the road be ng first put in repair were enforced.—Mr Jas. Jones agreed statingthat the same terms should be offered to every parish.-It was stated that it was necessary that the road should be maintained by the parish for twelve months and that the Sur. veyor's certificate to the effect that the road was in a satisfactory state should be obtained before the road could be taken over-The proposition was agreed to as seconded by. Mr Evans. PROPOSED WIDENING OF A ROAD. Mr David Evans, Penbryn, Llangwyryfon, wrote asking to be allowed to take a portion of the land on the side of the road running alongside his property at its widest part in exchange for a por- tion of land he would give at a narrow portion in order to widen the road.-Mr h. J. Evans said the road at one point was too wide and they could very well spare the land Mr Evans wanted. It was of no good to anybody. On the other hand, the road was too narrow a great deal at the other point and he if, re I to give land to widen it by three or four feet.—It was agreed, on the proposition of the Rev J. Davies and Mr J. B. Morgan, that plans of the proposed alteration should be submitted to the next meeting and that a proper agreement should be signed it the transaction took place. THE DOLDÁU DRAT". The following letter from John Roberts, chair- man of Uchanare Parish Council, and Thomas W. Edwards, Gogerddan Arms, chairman of the Issan- dre Parish Council, was read :-At the last meeting ot your Council, when the question of Doldau drainage was brought forward, the Inspector is re- ported to have said that he received instructions iroKi the two chairmen cf the Parish Councils to make un open drain through Doldau. We deny it altogether. As we are unjustly accused of being responsible for this work and as many of the rae. payers are led astray by the Inspector's statement, we desire to offer the followiog explanation Oa the 10th of last February we received verbal notice from Mr Simon, district councillor for Uchanare, that. a meeting was to he held that night at. seven o'clock of t e two district councillors and the t o chairmen cf tne Parish Councils to confer with the Inspector on the best way of flushing the drain leading from Pwllhobi to Doldau. The two dis- trict councillors being absent, we suggested that the best way would be to construct a drain from Full- brook to the main drain leading from Pengraig to Pwllhobi, no mention beir.g made about draining Doldau at all- As we have not seen any tenders, bill-, we contend that the Inspector's state- ment is ridiculous on the face of it. If this ex- planation is not satisfactory, we are prepared -o meet the Inspector at any time or place.-The In- spector said the letter was quite true so far as it stated that there were only the two chairman pre- sent. Mr Miller and Mr Simon failed to be pre- sent. They settled in regard to the pipes to flush the drain at once, but the men after him again to ask hitn to take the drain down to the river.—The Chairman What two men ?—The In- spector The two chairmen. I had started to go home and they came after me. What did They want to come after me for if it was not to a-k me to do this again? I met Mr Edwards last Friday and I asked him why they came out after me and he said he did not remember that.—Mr James Jones Where was the meeting?—The Inspector In the hcuse of the Chairinan.—Mr Jones Of Thomas Ednrds ?-TheInspector: Yes. (Laughter.) -,Nlr J ame,,i Jones: Oh, yes.-The Inspector Well, it is a public-house. -Ilr E. J. Evans Parish councils are not allowed to meet in public-houses. The Inspector Well, it was a public meeting. The magistrates meet at a public- house. -Iii reply to the Chairman, the Inspector said they told him to bring this matter up.—Mr Dd. Lloyd said one of the chairmen told him that they did not tell the Inspector to do this at all.—Mr E. J. Evans and the Chairman asked whether the authority of the Council was obtained for carrying out the work?— The Inspector said he consulted the two district councillors and they authorised him to do the work. He added that if they had been present there would have been no bother.—Mr Rd. James ug- gested that the minute book should be refeired to 'n order to ascertain the instructions given the Inspector. —Ultimately, the matter was deferred for the attendance of the two district councillors and the two chairmen at the next meeting. BRYNYMOR DRAINAGE. A letter was read at the last meeting from the Local Government Board in reference to the proposed formation of a special drainage district in the towe- ship of Vaenor Lower, stating that it was rcontrary to the practice of the Board to approve of the con- stitution of a special drainage district save in exceptional cases and when circumstances clearly pointed to the desirability of taking such a course. —Mr Dd. Lloyd thought the proprietors should have to pay for the drainage at any rate.—Mr John Morgan proposed that a committee should be appointed to go into the matter and lay as strong a case as possible before the Board.—This was agreed to. A FILTHY PRACTICE AT BORTH. A letter was read from the Cyfoethybrenin Parish Council asking the Council to take steps in regard to a culvert which emptied on the beach at Borth and either to have it removed or repaired, as it was a nuisance in its present state.—Mr Richard James said there was a dispute as to who was responsible in the matter and asked the Clerk to explain.—The Clerk stated that the culvert was on the property of the Board of Trade and if their attention was called no doubt they would take steps at on.e to have it removed. However, the danger was that they would communicate with the Local Govern- ment Board who would call upoo them to provide a system of;drainage for Borth.—Mr T. Jenkins siid tne houses of Borth did not empty into the culvtrt and the parish should net have to pay because of one house. H"at'ded that he knew that some people at Bo run made a practice of throwing the contents of tileir closets to the sea in the m; ruings and visitors bathed there afterwards.—The Inspec- tor said he had thought of asking permission to posting signs up warning people against this.—Mr JenkinS said they did it in the n.orning before any- one was up.—Mr R. Jones said the question now was whether the Council would go to the expense of repairing this and thus accept responsibility in the matter in view of the warning the Clerk gave ;hern.-On the proposition of the Rev J. Davies, a committee of Messrs R. James, Thomas Jenkins, ind Morris was appointed to visit the spot and see what could be done with the culvert, it being jnderstood that the Council would bear the expense )f repairing it. INSPECTOR'S REPORT. The Inspector reported that there was a stoppage ,n Pentrellyn water supply, some cf the pipes -e(i,iiring to be taken out in order that the water night run easily. Continual complaints were made oy the inhabitants of Tynllidiart as to the scarcity if water for dietetic purposes. There were only ive houses in the village owned by two persons. Fhrce cases of scarlatina had occurred at Cwmyst- vyth, one of which had proved fatal, tie had .isited the place and taken the usual precautions, [t was most probable that the cases were imported. He had supp'ied Dr James with a list of h us s to Je visited by him and the latter was awaiting the nstructions of the Council to visit these houses.— rhe Inspector was instructed to carry out tr.e necessary work at Pentrellyn and a committee was appointed to visit Tynllidiart with the view of find- ing a source of supply, it being stated that if one :ould be found within a reasonable distance the )wners would have to provide a proper supply. LLANBADARN WATER SUPPLY. The Local Government Board wrote stating that in inquiry would be held touching the application )f the Council for sanction to borrow money for works of water supply for the village of Llanbadarn as soon as the other engagements of the inspectors would permit. The letter added that the Board would require that all public mains should be laid with at least three feet of cover over them.

MARRIACxE OF MR MORGAN GRIFFITH JONES AND MISS ATKINSON. On August 3rd, in the neighbouring villages of Wylam and Ryton, Northumberland, there was much rejoicing by the inhabitants on the occasion of the wedding of Violet Florence Gwendoline, stepdaughter of MrJ. B. Simpson, J.P., of Bradley Hall. WyLam, to Mr Morgan, eldest son of Mr Griffith Jones, J. P., of Aberllolwyn, Cardiganshire, and 18, Bels ze-square, London. The wedding was 80lcmnizei at Ryton Church, and all along the roadway by which the bride and her retinue of friends travelled to the Church there were crowds who enthusiastically cheered, and the journey was made amidt salvos of gun firing. The quaint Church was early filled by a tllloug of interested people, many of the charmingly-attired ladies, gathered from the surrounding neighbourhood, carrying fine bouquets of flowers. The chance screen and the chancel had been tastefully decor- ated by Messrs Fell and Co., of Hexham. The screen was festooned with foliage, interspersed with white marguerite, and the altar and surroundings were enriched with beautiful white blooms. With- out the Church, many hundreds had assembled alongside the length of carpet that stretched from the porch to the entrance gates, through one of the most beautiful of God's acres in the North and beyond, away to the quaint village green, there were hundreds of spectators. The ceremony was fixed at half-pasi two o'clock, and upto that hourtherehad been constant arrivals of representatives of the leading local families. The bridegroom's party journeyed from Newcastle in a four-in-hand coach. After the ceremony, and during the signing of the register, Mr Nichol played 0 Rest in the Lord" and finally the "Wedding March," by Mendelssohn. The bride, who entered the churcn with her biotner, Mr F. B. Atkinson. wore bridal attire that was voted by the ladies to be a perfect pJem." She was aUired in a white satin costume, trimmed with duchesse lace and orange blossoms, the train being of rich brocade. Her lace bridal veil was fastened on the head with a large diamond and turquoise crecent, a present from the bridegroom, and in addition she wore a fine diamond butterfly brooch. She also carried a nugni- ficent spray bouquet. The bridesmaids were:—Miss Aline Atkinson, sister ;Miss Griffith Jones, sister to the bridegroom Miss C. Simpson, cousin to the bride Miss Maud Browne, Miss Flo Draper, cousins to the bride; and Miss Muriel Simpson. The brides- n aids, who looked charming, were attired in pale maize-coloured satin trimmed with lace, with white atraw hats heavily trimmed with black tulle, and bunches of pink roses. They also carried bouquets of shaded roses. Each wore a gold brooch, in whip pattern, with a horseshoe of diamonds, the gift of the bridegroom. Miss Joan Atkinson and Master Geoffrey Atkinson, niece and nephew, two little children, attired in white, carried the bride's train as pages-in-waiting. The six groomsmen were Mr Stanley Griffith Jones, Mr Bullard, Mr Jennar First, Mr Steel, Mr Stephen, and Mr Laugharne Griffith-Jones. The marriage ceremony was per- formed by the Rev. Canon Bailey, assisted by the Rev. H. A. Bettison (Kirkheaton) and the Rev. Mr Cronan, Trinity Hall (Cambridge). The bride was given away by her brother, Mr T. B. Atkinson. Mr John Gilmour of Montrave, dean of Scotland, was best man. The service was fully choral. After the service the bridal party, who were liber- ally besprinkled with couletti as they left the Church,-walked to the churchyard gates, audthence drove to Bradley Hal!. A large party of the bride- groom's bachelor friends mounted the four-in-hand coach. A reception was afterwards held at Brad- ley Hall, when a large party of guests assembled. The newly-wedded pair left during the afternoon for London, en route for Cornwall, driving to New- castle Central Station. They were loudly cheered and the proverbial old slippers, amidst great mer- riment, were attached dexterously to the rear of the coach by a jovial friend from Derbyshire. The bride's travelling costume was of periwinkle cloth trimmed in applique with white braid. She also wore a periwinkle ioque trimmed with lobelia and red roses, and a cream-coloured cape trimmed with braid. The presents were very numerous and costly and in- cluded the following Mr J.
