Howell fill the offices of secretary and treasurer respectively. Peace Sierning.—The news that peace had been signed was received in Llau- wrtyd Wells with little or no excitement. Our visitors formed into groups, and questioned as to whether it was true after all," and when they dispersed were still undecided. There was however a good display of flags and bunting, and when the night mail brought the official" news the no treating order was doomed never more to become existant. Sailed for Canada.—Mr H. E. White, son of the late Colonel Esmonds-White, Sunny Bank, Llanwrtyd Wells, has this week embarked for Canada. When war broke out he came over to fight for the Old Country, joining the Welsh Horse.

He was a faithful chorister of the Church of S. James and had but reached his 14th year. Shearing.—The tinkle of the shears can now be heard throughout the country- side. Man and beast are as busy as bees, and on Monday next, one of the largest clips of our district takes place at that famous old Hostel, the Grouse Inn (Pentwyn) Abergwessin.
