TEMPERANCE.—The members of the local branch of the British Women's Temperance Association held their monthly meeting on Tuesday evening under the presidency of Mrs Williams, Brenig View.

TELEGRAPHIC EXTENSION.—The men employed by the Government in the extension of telegraphic communication in various parts of South Wales are at present busily engaged in putting down a wire between this place and Llanddewibrefi, via LlanlO Road Station. The work will be completed before the week is out and the official opening of the tele graph for public service will take place in the course of a few days. When this is fiuished, telegraphic communication will again be established between Tregaron and Bronant or Blaenpennal. THE SHEEP FAIR. A very large fair was held on Tuesday last. The supply of sheep held out well, considering the thousands which had been sold at previous fairs. Hundreds of sheep are brought by dealers from Merionethshire and Mont- gomeryshire to the Tregaron markets. The prices realised at the fair on Tuesday last were said to be higher than any obtained this year, not only at Tregaron but at Llanybyther, Llandovery, or Builth fairs. It is very doubtful whether the lots taken away this week will bring any profit to the speculative dealers. Messrs Daniel Jones, Blaen- plwyf, and T. Morgans, Lluast, have bought be- tween 500 and 600 at each fair throughout the season, and they have been by far the heaviest buyers this year.
