BALA. HIRING FAIR.-Ofl Monday, the 10th July, a fair was held here wheu a large number of farmers were in town engaging men for the hay harvest. FISHING COMPETITION.—A fishing competition took place on the lake last Thursday. Several persons entered into the competition, but no large baskets were taken. The first prize taker only caught small pike weighing about four pounds. The judges- were Dr Williams, Messrs J. C. Evans, and Moses Roberts, and the prize? were awarded as follows :— 1st Mr R, H. Roberts, Castle-street 2nd, Mr William Evans, Blaenddol. This being the first competition of this kind held, areat interest was taken and a large crowd had gathered to watch the fishermen's return. MIRACULOUS ESCAPE FKOM DROWNING.—Just when the prizes in the above-mentioned competition had been awarded, twc youne men, Walter Salter, coach- man at Eryl Aran, and Frank Simpson, an employee of the G.W. Railwav Co., went out for a row in one of the skiffs. When they had got out about forty or fifty yards from the landing stage it was seen that there was water in the boat. Suddenly the two men began to move about. The crowd now thought something was wrong. In a very short time the boat was seen to capsize, the occupants being thrown into the water. It transpires that after they started out the water began to enter the I büat owing to their having seated themselves close to the stern. It was rather rough at the time. When the two men saw the water coming in they became flurried and moved about, and consequently the boat was filled in a very short time and sank. The large crowd of people which had only a few minutes previously been enjoying themselves became alarmed and very excited. Seeing the perilous condition of the men several boats hurried to the scene of the upsst, which fortunately was within easy reach. Salter could swim and he tried his utmost to help his friend who couli not swim. He held him up for some time, but his strength failed, and both men went under. They came up again, but Simpson went again under. The boats arrived on the scene, and Air William Buckley. Aberhircant Hall who has just returned from Klondyke—happening to be on the lauding stage and seeing the dangerous condition the poor fellows were in, jumped into the water in his clothes and swam in a very short time to the rescue. From the boats John Ball, boatman, and others managed to get hold of Salter. They also I tried to get Simpson. Just then Mr Buckley arrived and in a very heroic manner got hold of the drowning man and held him above water. He afterwards received help from the boatmen and without delay they brought Simpson b the landing stage. On reach- ing the stage Dr Williams, who was one of the judges in the fishing competition, was fortunately in readiness to render every help. The boat came alongside the stage and Mr Buckley, who had partly carried Simpson, lifted him on to the stage. Dr Williams immediately commenced artificial respiration and worked most unceasingly. As may be expected, everybody had by now become very alarmed and excited, and the news had spread like wildfire about the town and hundreds of people ran to the lake. the excitement being intense. The crowd waited breathlessly while the doctor and others were attend- ing to Simpson. They were greatly relieved when Dr Williams's efforts were rewarded, the signs of life beginning to show themselves. Dr Williams worked most perseveringly and in a short time he found that his patient was coming round. Great help was rendered by Inspector Morgan and others in getting warm clothing, stimulants. &c. Ultimately the doctor pronounced that Simpson had recovered sufficiently to be taken home. He was carried on the stretcher by members of the St. John's Ambulance Class and taken to his lodgings where he received every atten- tion from Dr Williams and others. He is progressing well. All were IOlln. in their praise of Mr Buckley f )r the gallant and plucky manner in which he acted throughout. 1\0 doubt it was mainly due to his gallant actiofl that Simpson was saved. Great praise is also due to Dr Williams for the untiring way in which he worked. It was most fortunate that he happened to be on the spot, as he rendered invaluable aid. The accident caused a great sensa- tion in the town, but when it became known that the two men had been saved everybody were greatly relieved. URBAN COUNCIL, FRIDAY.—Present Messrs R. W. Roberts, J. P., chairman J. W. Roberts, vice-chairman David Jones (Birmingham House), H. Evans. D. W. Jones, Evan Jones, Edward Jones, H. Ll. Davies, David Jones (joiner), W. T. Jones, R.

Lloyd Jon's to give a definite answer within 1;hre months' time whether he was going to conduct these sales in the Green or not. Streetg Committee.—The Streets Committee re- ported that the Surveyor said that it was necessary before he commenced making a footpath near Bradford House that levels should be taken. He boinc unable to do so, he asked for instructions The Committee felt difficulty in regard to this, inasmuch as Mr R. I I. Jones had for some years acted as engineer to the Council without retnunera- tion, he being a member of the Council. After consulting the Clerk, the matter was pit before Mr Lloyd Jones, and he was asked to instruct the Surveyor as usual, which, after some cousidera'ion, he promised to do.—On the motion of Mr D. W. Jones, seconded by Mr H. Evans, the report was received and adopted.—Mr Lloyd Jones was thanked for his services. The Street Committee also reported that at be request of the Surveyor they had visited Mount- street and were of opinion fiat it would be advis- able to make the footpath from the lucIe-pendent Chapel to the corner of the road leading to the (Workhouse a little wider than originally agreed and they wished the Council to decide the width, —After discussion, it was resolved that the report be adopted and that the footpath be made ot as phalt and that the width should not be more than j one yard.—The Committee also reported that their attention was called to the desirabdity of taking j the footpath on from High-street to the other fide of Mr G. Rues's shop, as it was necessary to make a place for the water to run from the gutters in High-street. Jir Rees was asked, if the Council would make the footpath, would he be prepared to pay the difference between making the footpath and constructing the drain. To this Mr Rees agreed and the Committee recommend the Council to confirm the agreement made.—On the motion of Mr J. W. Roberts, seconded by Mr D. W. Jones, the report was adopted and the ageeement made by the Committee confirmed. PETTY SESSIONS, SATURDAY, ] ULY STH.—1 Colonel E. Evans Lloyd and Roger Hughes. Esq.
