THE ROY ALL VISIT 13 WALES. OUR numerous readers are reminded that with our next issue we shall publish a FULL and COMPLETE ACCOUNT of the visit of their Royal Highnesses the PRINCE and PRINCESS of WALES to the Principality. With the same issue we shall present purchasers of the paper with an illustrated supplement in commemoration of the auspicious event. The papers will be despatched from the head office by the mail train on Saturday morning, and will be on sale at all newsagents at an early hour. ■ ♦ THE ceremony of the installation of the PRINCE OF WALES as Chancellor of the University of Walesi as our many readers are already aware, will take place at Aber- ystwyth on Friday next. The PRINCESS OF WALES, together with the PRINCESSES VICTORIA and MAUD, will accompany the PRINCE, and the Royal party will travel by Great Western Railway, leaving Padding- zn ton by special train on Thursday, and travelling from Welshpool by the Cambrian Railways system to Machynlleth, being entertained by the Dowager Marchioness of LONDONDERRY. The next morning they will continue their journey to Aberystwyth for the installation. Cards of invitation from H.R.H. the Chancellor and the Members of the University of Wales have been issued to the Governors and Council- lors of the various Colleges forming the University of Wales, and to a large number of the leading and public men of the Princi- pality, requesting the honour of their presence at a congregation of the Cniversity to be held in Aberystwyth on Friday, June 26th, at 12.MO p.m., for the purpose of the installation of the Chancellor. The Reception Committee has secured accom- modation for a large number of intending visitols at the various hotels and lodging- houses at Aberystwyth and Borth. The whole of Borth Hotel has been secured, and among those who will stay at this com- modious hotel are Lord and Lady WINDSOR (Mayor and Mayoress of Cardiff). The members of the University will wear morn- ing dress, graduate members of the Univer- sity will wear Academic costume. Mayors will wear their official robes, and students of the University their University or College gowns. The veil that hung over the proceedings of the University Court in the matter of honorary degrees has at last, so we are informed, been lifted, and the names of the recipients of the honour are now before the public. Much of the secrecy observed by the authorities was due to uncertainty as to whether those whom the Senate had in the first instance recommended would be able to attend the function. It was origin- ally intended not to confer any degrees in absentia, and as the Chancellors of at least three Universities hold some of the most responsible posts in the present Govern- ment, it was felt that it would be almost impossible to secure the attendance of these distinguished men at so short a notice and at so inconvenient a, time. It is quite as well, however, that, as the final outcome oi the negotiations, it has been found practic- able to grant only five degrees. For in each case there can be no quesbon of the appropriateness of the honom. The University naturally bestows its first de- gree upon its Chancellor, who will grace- fully enough, as his first official act, confer the degree of Doctor in Music upon the PRI:;CE.HS OF WALKS. The other three recipient; of degrees will be Mr. GLADSTONE, Lord HI:nscHKLL, and Lord SPENCER. Mr. G"LADsToxE'a name was, it will be remem- bered, the first-mentioned in connee ion with the Chancellorship, but it was felt at the time that the life-long services ten- dered to Welsh education by the late Lord ABERDARE were so great as to make it impossible to pass him over even for so distinguished a man as Mr. GLADSTONE. But the fact that Mr. GLADSTONE was named for the Chancellorship, and that he was Prime Minister when the University received its charter, makes the conferment of an honorary degree upon him a pecu- liarly appropriate act. As he will doubt- less have to make a speech after the luncheon, his presence will lend a distinc- tion to the occasion from an oratorial point of view, which nothing else would have given. The Welsh correspondent to the Manchester Guardian confesses in a recent article how curious and amusing it is that the University of Wales should thus be honouring the veteran statesman at a time when the Welsh Nonconformist Press is excitedly girding at him on account of his letter on the validity of Anglican orders. Lord HERSCHELL is honoured as the repre- sentative of the University to which Wales has owed most in the past, and in the degree examinations of which the Welsh Colleg-es have a brilliant record. Lord SPENCER, as Chancellor of Victoria, repre- sents the youngest sister University, and one which, in its constitution and organisa- tion. has more in common with the Univer- sity of Wales than any other. Although the wisdom of the proposal to grant honorary degrees at so early a stage in the career of the University was doubted bysome people, still, it was recognised that some- thing ought to be done to give as much distinction as possible to the visit of the PRrxcE OF WALES and to the ceremony of the installation, and it is gratifying to know that things so far have ended so satisfactorily. On the 27th the Royal party will proceed to Cardiff, travelling via Moat Lane Junc- tion, Three Cocks. Talyllyn, and Merthyr. No stoppages will be made except for change of locomotives as the train passes from one company's line on to another. The Great Western Railway Company have built a fine new saloon of extraordinary dimensions, and upholstered with the most exquisite taste for this special journey, and last week, what the engineer's call a templet—that is, a model of the coach, was sent over the route for the purpose of test- ing the capability of bridges, tunnels, &c., for its passage without the least risk of danger at any point. 4
NOTES BY THE WAY. Owing to pressure upon our space the reports of the Oddfellows' anniversary at Montgomery, and laying the foundation stones at Bettws, are unavoid- ably held over till next week. Major Pryce-Jones, M.P., was on Wednesday elected a member of the local governing body of the Newtown Intermediate Schools. We are requested to state that no acceptances for the ceremony of the Installation of the Prince of Wales as Chancellor of the University of Wales can be received after to-day. *.¡¡; • At a meeting of the Western Sea Fisheries Dis- trict Committee at Barmouth on Tuesday, the question of divjding the district was further ad- journed. on Monday evening, between Barmouth and Towyn, a young woman named Martha Jones, 22 years of age, was knocked down and killed by a passing train. No better argument in favour of public baths for Oswestry could be had than the eagerness and delight manifested by a crowd of small boys almost every night in the baths in Victoria Road. The small swimming bath is crowded far beyond what is comfortable, and the happy enjoyment of the boys is only marred by the lack of sufficient accom- modation. It is to be hoped the question of public baths recently discussed at the Town Council meeting has not been shelved altogether, but that before next season, at least, a public swimming bath will be provided for the benefit of the in- habitants. The Montgomery County Council held its quar- terly meeting at the Town Hall, Welshpool, yester- day, and devoted about three hours in discussing the main provisions of the Education Bill, in the course of which Mr. C. R. Jones delfvered a speech, which was noted more for its warmth of feeling than its argumentative force. He had the audacity to propose that in the case of all Voluntary Schools receiving the special aid grant from the Government, at least one-half of the Committee of Management should be popularly elected. Even supposing that the supporters of Voluntary Schools subscribe one-half of the funds and the Government the other half, that affords no tangible reason why one-half of the management should be popularly elected. Mr Jones evidently forgets to make an allowance for those who have provided the school buildings, and also maintained the teaching staffs and ensured the proper education of the children in tie past, without receiving any assistance from the State. At their meeting on Tuesday, the members of the Aberystwyth Town Council were engaged for a con- siderable time in discussing the present state of affairs in connection with the appointment of trustees on the Downie's Bequest. Councillor D. C. Roberts had on the agenda a resolution which asked the Charity Commissioners not to proceed with the appointment of the recently-nominated trustees until an enquiry was held by them into the charges which, he alleged, had been brought against Alderman Peter Jones and Councillor C. M. Williams. Though the Radicals have asked for an enquiry, we cannot help thinking that it was never their intention, much more their desire, that an enquiry should be held which would enable Dr Harries to defend the attacks that were made upon him so far back as 1890. Nevertheless, the pro- posed enquiry is much the fairer way of settling the question, and as Alderman Peter Jones and Councillor C. M. Williams say they are ready to answer any charges by which they are confronted, there can be no great harm done by their assisting Dr Harries to meet the charges brought against him by the Infirmary Committee. The Conser- vatives and Church party have shown a desire to court the fullest investigation, and it is for the Radicals and Nonconformists—however severe the ordeal might turn out to be—not to shirk the task which awaits them. -+-
ABERYSTWYTH. CARDIGAN ARTILLERY. -The regiment arrived home Oil Fliday week, and broke up on the follow- ing day. The men looked a smart lot, and their conduct has given general satisfaction. SUSPECTED OF STEALING A WATCH.—At the Police Court on Monday before the Mayor (Coun- cillor Griffiths and E. D. Wynne, Esq.) Evan John Rees, a collier, Tylorstown, was charged on suspicion with stealing a watch the property of Emma Beynon of High street.—Complaisant said that the prisoner followed her into her house on the previous Saturday. She left her watch on the table and went upstairs telling the prisoner to leave the house. When she came down she saw the prisoner going out through the door. She missed the watch at the time. The prisoner was drunk at the time.—P.O. Jones said that prisoner denied the theft and witness failed to find the watch on him. —The man was discharged. DRUNKENNESS.— Walter Jones, Ferndale, a militia- man was summoned for being drunk, and at Monday's sittings of the Court be was ordered to pay 2s 6d including costs. THE WRONG HAN.—John Williams, of Llan- eliwv, Flintshire, was charged at the Police Court on Monday, with being drunk and using threatening language to a woman.—The case against the defendant was that he went into a shop in Princess street and asked for drink. He was told that no intoxicants were sold there, and the prisoner then asked for meat and bread which he ate and never paid for, and as if to keep up the joke he told the woman if she were in America she would be shot in about a minute. Then the woman fainted and a crowd came up and the man was handed over to Inspector Morgan.—Mary Elizabeth Jones, daughter of the shopkeeper, said that the man was not the same as he one who entered the shop, and con- sequently he was discharged. CAMBRIAN ARCHCEOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION.—Mr W. H. Colby presided over a meeting of the local committee held at the College oil Friday evening week, when it was decided to appoint a small sub committee to draw up a programme of intended excursions to take place in the neighbourhood. THE HOT WEATHER—The exceptionally hot weather that has prevailed of late has been the cause of several cases of sunstroke in various parts of Wales. On Monday, Mr John Rowlands, rural postman, was taken ill with sunstroke and on the previous day Mr William Hughes, Glanyrafon, farmer, was similary attacked. ROYAL VISIT TO ABERYSTWYTH.—VISIT OF THE CHANNEL SQUADRON.—It is stated that the follow- ing ironclads will assemble in the Bay on the even. ing of June 25th :—Blake, Repulse, Magnificent, Bellona, and Majestic, so that visitors to the coast will be enabled to see some of the finest ironclads in the British Navy.

Wemyss, Lion Hotel, was charged with keeping a dog without a license.—After hearing the evidence the Bench dismissed the case. —Owen Rogers, Penyglais Road, charged with the same offence, was fined Is. and costs. ASSAULT AND BATTERY. John Evans, Trefechan, was charged by Anne Jones, Trefechan, with assaulting her by striking her. On the 14th of June complainant interfered between her husband an the defendant, and the latter struck her in the scuffle.—Mr A. J. Hughes appeared for the defen- dant, and both parties were bound over in the sum of £5 to keep the peace for six months.—John Evans then charged James Jones with the same offence, and they were both bound over in the sum of £5 to keep the peace for six months. OFFENCES AGAINST THE BYE LAWS.—Thomas Morris, Waterloo^ Hotel, was charged with a breach of the bye-laws in allowing the stage coach to stay too long on the Terrace. Mr Hughes prosecuted and Mr Owen defended. The evidence ot P.C. Thomas Davies sought to show that the leading horses were causing an obstruction, but after hear- ing the evidence the Bench dismissed the case.— Evan Lewis, Liverpool House, John Theophilus, Llanbadarn, John Samuel, Wainfawr. and John Jones, Llangawsai, weie charged with plying for hire with hackney carriages without licenses.—The charged against Theophilus was withdrawn, and the other defendants were bound over in the sum of £5 to come up for judgment when called upon, and to pay 2s 6d each.

Two bills amounting to £4 lIs 6d, expenses incurred in connection with holding an inquiry respecting the water supply were submitted and passed. BRIDGE FOR THE TYPJANT RIVER. The Chairman asked if any reply had been received from the Clerk to the County Council relative to the proposal of the District Council that theCoauty Council shoulJpay one-third of the cost of erecting a new stone bridge over the Tynant river. The Assistant Clerk said that no reply bad been received, and it was decided to write again asking for an early reply. TAKING OVER A KoAD. Mr George Price proposed that application be made to the County Council to take over and adopt a highway in the parish of Llanfihangel Lower as a main road.-Mr David Edwards seconded, and it was agreed to. PUBLIC HEALTH ACT, 1890 On the proposition of Mr Pryce, it was decided to ask the Board to dispense with the inquiry in connection with the adoption of the Public Health Act, 1890. A FOOTPATH OUT OF REPAIR Rev J. T. Morgan, of Bow Street, wrote to the Council complaining of the state of the footpath eading down to a well near the Cambrian Railway. Mr Price proposed, and Mr Charles Davies seconded, that a letter should be sent to the writer pointing out that it was the duty of the parish meeting to move in the matter. A TWENTY-ONE YEARS' DEATH RATE. At the last meeting a letter was read from Capt. Arter. complaining of the quality of the water now used by the villagers of Goitre.—The inspector reported that he had visited the well complained of by Captain Arter, and found that it was quite unfit for domestic purposes. The well had been recently cleaned. He doubted the statement of Captain Arter. He bad made enquiries and found that only one death had occurred during a period of twenty- one years, and that was the case of an old lady of eighty years of age (very good and laughter).- Mr John Jones, a nephew of Capt. Arter, attended the Council, and denied the statement made by Captain Arter that the latter had lost several children owing to the impurity of the water sup- plied to the village. He admitted that the present supply of water was unfit for cattle to drink —Mr J. M. Williams proposed that the Inspector make enquiries as to the new method of supply suggested by Mr Jones.-Mr Geo. Price seconded the proposi- tion and it was carried.-Mr WiiHams mentioned the case of a neighbouring villUge where certain wells were condemned, but notwithstanding this fact the water was used by the servant with the result that three of four members of a family died from drinking the watftr.—Mr Miller did not think that Captain Arter would have made a false state- ment and said that the word of the medical offi er would enlighten them.—The Inspector said that he had made enquiries of the neighbours and he could only find record of the death of the old lady. Mr Miller What about the children ? The Inspector Oh that was whooping cough.—The Clerk suggested that the Inspector take the necessary steps to get the well condemned, and the Council gave the necessary instructions. b REPORT ON ENCROACHMENT. Messrs E. J. Evans, James Jones and W. A. Miller, the committee appointed to report upon the alleged encroachment at Dolau, Llanbadarn Fawr, submitted a long report, and urged the Council to take the necessary steps to prevent what they con- sidered an encroachment.—On the proposition of Mr W. A. Miller it was decided to ask Messrs Bourne and Grant to put the land into the same condition as they found it.—Mr George Price seconded and it was carried. PWLLHOBI. Complaints having been made as to the condition of the channels in Pwllhobi, it was decided, upon the proposition of Mr W. A Miller, to obtain an estimate for paving the the channel, similar to the paving already done at Talybont,' and that the County Council should be asked to bear half of the expense. TALYBONT WATER SUPPLY The plans of this water supply was before the Council, and it was decided to ask the Local Government Board to hold an enquiry.

LLANSANTFFRAID. BAZAAR.—A most successful Bazaar was held in the Village Hall on Tuesday, in aid of the Congregational Chapel enlargement funds. The stalls were very neatly arranged around the room and contained an abundance of useful articles which were very readily bought by those who attended. The opening ceremony took place at 2 o'clock, when amongst those present were-Mr and Miss Edith Perrott (Bronhyddon), Miss Sheraton (Penymaes), Mrs and Mrs Roe (Pontypentre), Misses Phillips (Hendreboith), Mr and Misses Kempster, Mr E. Kempster, Miss Saunders, MrR. Lewis (Oaklands), Dr Lewis, Miss Ryder, Miss Peate, Mrs Richards and Mrs Jones (Glanvirniew), Mr and Mrs Richards (Frankton), Mrs Richards (Liverpool), Mrs Hughes (Drffryn), Mr and Mrs Pugh (Trederwen), Misses Shankland, Mrs Evans and Mrs Thomaa, (Mont- gomery), Mrs Parry (Oswestry), Mr and Mrs Ellis Roberts and Mits Jones (Llanfyllin), Mr Gittins (Vobly, Mrs Gittins (Finnant), Ac., &c. Rev R. G. Williams announced that Mrs Perrott, Bronhyddon, who had promised to come and open the Bazaar was unfortnnately suffering from illness and could not attend. Miss Perrott had, however, very kindly come forward to take her mother's place (cheers). Mr Perrot said he had come there to express his mother's regret at not being able to perform the duty she had promised to undertake. If a doctor's advice was worth having it was worth following, and it was only in obedience to her doctor that she was not present- It was a keen disappointment to her, and she had asked him to come down and express her sorrow at her enforced absence. He had no doubt they had all come with their pockets full, and the sooner they lightened them the better. Rev R. G. Williame then called upon Miss Mary Perrott to declare the sale open, which she did amidst cheers, wishing them "every success. A hearty vote of thanks was accorded Miss Perrott for her services, on the motion of Rev R. G. Williams, seconded by Mr D. Pryce Jones. The following were the stall holders :—Bachelor's stall, Mr. D. Pryce Jones, and Mr. R. C- Jones; fancy stall, Miss Wynn, Miss Minnie Davies, Miss Katy Evans (Bodgwilym), Miss Ancy Jones, and Miss Lord; millinery stall, Mrs Mason and Miss Winnie Davies; refreshment stall, Miss Taylor, Miss Higson, and Miss Etty Higson; clothing stall, Mrs Edwards, Miss Clara Edwards, and Mrs Davies flower stall, Miss Agnes Davies, Miss Edith Hanmer, and Miss Ethel Taylor; provision stall, Miss Katie Roberts and Miss Jerman fancy stall, Miss Kempster, Miss Lewis, and Miss Ada Lewis; penny-go-round, Miss Bessie Townend the wheel of fortune was taken in turns. Living pictures were very successfully got up by Mr R. C. Jones and Miss Ancy Jones. Valuable assistance was given by Mrs Higson, Mr J. Davies, Mr J. Cadwaladr, and Mr D. Jones.

An hour's extension had been gtat.ted to the manageress (Mis" Jenkins) for the occasion, and this privilege enabled the coui- pany to enjoy a lengthier programme than would otherwise have been possible.

Farmer was heard to great ad vantage in the "Tin Gee Gee" (with banjo accompaniment). The proceedings throug-h- out were of a lively character, being rendered all the more so by one gentleman, who, to quote Lord Beaconsfield, was inebriated bv the exuberance of his own verbosity."

COLLEGE OF PRECEPTORS.—During the week an examination for the College of Preceptors has been conducted in the Church House, kindly len for the occasion by the Vicar of Welshpool (Rev. D. Grimaldi Davis), who was the superintending examiner. There were thirty-two candidates, all from the boys' department of the "Intermediate School, who sat for about seven hours a day, from Tuesday until yesterday afternoon. THE LATE COLONEL HARRISON.—On Sunday last, at 10 a.m., the full complement of the 4th Batt. S. W. Borderers, and for the first time during this training, attended morning service at Christ Church. The service, which was choral, was taken by the Vicar, who also preached the sermon, and tl e lessons were read by Mr G. D. Harrison. The preacher selected as the subject of his sermon the Shortness of human life in this world." In the course of his remarks he dwelt upon the different ways of dealing with the fact of life being short, mentioning especially those of the reckless man, the despairing man, and the Christian. He then impressed upon his hearers that the latter was the only true and wise way of dealing witfc the short- ness of life. At the close of the sermon the Vicar referred to the death of the late Colonel Harrison in the followingiterms:—"The remarks, which I have just made have doubtless led the thoughts of many, who are now listening to me, to the friend and neighbour whose mortal remains were laid to rest on Wednesday last in Forden Churchyard. I allude, as you know, to the late Colonel Harrison, the late commanding officer of the 4th Batt. S. W. Borderers. He has been taken away in the very prime of life, when there seemed to be before him many more years of usefulness. God has decreed otherwise, and he has been taken away, we may be sure, for some wise purpose. But though his life was short, he compressed into that short life a great deal of work—work not merely for self, but for others as well. In many ways, of which yon all know, he served his generation. How well he did so has been amply testified during the last few days, and by the large numbers, who honoured him in his death, by attending his funeral. His death, I need hardly say, is a great loss to this county and district, and still more so to his family, and those nearest to him. I fervently pray that God will comfort those bereaved, with that con-fort, which He alone can give. And I earnestly trust that we shall all strive to follow his good example, and that his memory will be long cherished as an incentive to do good by us all, and especially by his friends and comrades in the 24th." During the service special hymns were sung, and at the end the Dead March was beautifully played on the organ by Miss Farmer, accompanied by the Band of the regiment. LOCAL GOVERNING BODY.—A meeting of the Local Governors was held yesterday afternoon, the Mayor (Mr W. Forrester Addie) presiding. The other members present were Mrs Humphreys-Owen, Messrs Jones, Morris, Richards, Rogers and Howell, with Mr E. L. R. Jones, clerk.—Some discussion took place with regard to the supplies of stationary, and it was unanimously agreed to ask the local tradespeople to contract for supplies in future.— The Finance Committee recommended that the salary of the clerk be increased from £20 to £2S per annum from 31st March, 1896, subject to three months' notice on either side. The recommendation was agreed to.—The Furnishing Committee recom- mended that an additional classroom be provided in the Girls' School, and that Mr Challoner be re- quested to send in an estimate for the cost of con- verting the two attics into a classroom that thirty second-hand desks offered by Miss Collin of Cardiff, at 15seach, including packing and carriage, be obtained in view of thefact that 15 desks were already requir- ed and that the remainder would be necessary when the new schools were completed. The first part of the recommendation was deferred till the question of scholarships came up.—On the motion of Mr. Richards, seconded by Mrs. Humphreys-Owen, it was unanimously agreed to purchase the desks as recommended. The Head- master reported that Mr. Thomas, High Street, had presented to the school a new set of drawing models.—On the motion of Mr. Howell, seconded by Mr. Rogers, a vote of thanks was passed to Mr. Thomas for his generous gift.—A letter was read from the Charity Commissioners stating that the plans for the new schools had been passed, and requesting the Governors to obtain estimates for the work. Estimates to be sent to the Charity Com- missioners for approval.—On the motion of Mr. Jones, seconded by Mr. Richards, the Clerk was instructed to prepare conveyance of site, to be sent to the County Governing Body, and it was also agreed to ask Mr. Shayler, the architect, to attend a special meeting of the Building Committee.—Mrs. Humphreys-Owen brought up the discussion as to wheLher the amount proposed to be spent in scholarships satisfied the requirements of the scheme. After a long discussion it was agreed on the motion of the Chairman to write to the County Governing Body on the subject.— Mrs Humphreys-Owen gave notice that she would move at the next meeting that they make a charge for the use of the piano.—Mrs Humphreys-Owen's motions were put to the meeting as follows :—(a) That at the first meeting of the Governors after the beginning of each term, a list of all new pupils be produced ry the head-master and mistress iu which they shall certify that the pupils have com- pleted their 10th year that they have, if coming from an elementary school, been scheduled there in the 5th standard, or that they have satisfied an equivalent examination, (b) That the names and addresses of the registered lodgings be appended to any new prospectus of the school.—The motions were unanimously passed.— This was all the business. ————

FORDEN RURAL DISTRICT COUNCIL. W E D N E S D A Y A special meeting of the Council was held for the purpose oi' tnkiog into consideration the berriew Water Nr:" ::ie Bei ore commencing the bosi- ness of t.K- ee.i;v,o\cr, the Vauirnian (Mr J. Davies) raid i h. s;v w;e last meeting of the Council t.ie ueara rf i. o:. iinrri.»on !;a<i come to them preut grief, ilc- would nor enter upon any eui: uy <>1 t:ir occeased gr.r.ceoiahe IjeinL" so wellkno^ every member of the Com.-cil. No one regarded the late Colonel Harrison wirh greater admiration and respect than he did. He moved that the Council convey to Mrs Harrison and family the sympathy which > lie Council felt with them in their ¡ bereavement.- Mr E. H'.uhcs, in seconding, en- dorsed nil that had been said by the Chairman. Everyone regretted tuat so excellent a gentleman had been called away, whereby the county suffered a great loss.—Mr J. Edwards, in supporting the motion. said that a truer gentleman in evert respect than the late Col. Harrison could not be found. Air W. Pritchard also bore testimony to the late Colonel's business capacity.—The motion was carried in silence.—The Clerk reported the result of his interviews with the various owners in con- nection with the Berriew Water Supply scheme. From a letter from All- Reynards, he understood that that gentleman would consent, provided that rhe other owners bore their proper share of the expense. Major Corbett-Winder expressed his willingness to join in the expense with the other owners, on certain conditions. He did not consider that the supply from Ladywell would be sufficient. .Some guarantee should be given that it would be sufficient. He was of opinion that the School trustees should pay more than the actual rateable value, because the children attending the school came from the whole parish. The Clerk also read a letter from Rev W. L. Martin, stating that as he was only a life tenant he was in a different position from the other owners. He (the Clerk) had also seen Miss Gough, who stated that the distance which her tenants had to go to fetch water was only short, and she was not willing to contribute. I If she was compelled, she had a pump which she would open to her tenants. The Clerk further reported that as the Talbot Well was not con- demned, Major Corbet-Winder would not be chargeable on that. He (the Clerk) suggested if a small committee was appointed to wait on Major Corbet-Winder to satisfy him that the Ladywell supply was sufficient, that gentleman womd forego other matters.—Dr Wilson (representing Dr Thurs- field) stated that he had calculated the amount of water for a parish containing 35 houses, with a population of 175. Supposing it. would take 10 gallons per head, 1,750 gallons would be required every day, which would be more than ample for the parish.—On the motion of Mr J. Edwards, the Berriew Councillors, together with the Surveyor and Inspector, were appointed a committee to ascertain if the supply at Ladywell was sufficient, and to wait on Major Corbet-Winder respecting the questions raised by him.
FORDEN BOARD OF GUARDIANS. Colonel Twyford in the chair.—The C'erk read a communication from the Local Government Board, containing an extract from the report of Mr Bir- cham on the occasion of his recent visit to the House, which has already appeared in our Culumns, and which suggests the provision of further accom- modation at the House,—The Chairman said that they agreed that the subject should stand over to see what effect the detention of the tramps for two nights might have on the number of agrants.—The Master, on being called in, stated that the number of tramps had decreased a good deal. Formerly they had about 27 or 28 tramps in one night, but since the new system had been adopted they had not had more than twelve.—It was decided on the motion of Mr E. R. James, that the Clerk should reply to the Local Government Board to the effect that as regarded the labourcells, they provided labour in addition to the breaking of stones. Seeing that the vagrants had decreased in number, the accom- modation at the House was sufficient for the pre- sent.—A further letter from the Local Government Board stated that that Board had allotted the sum of £12 per annum to Miss Bright as industrial trainer.—The Clerk stated that he had received from the Poor Law Local Government Officers' Mutual Guarantee Society, a bond for £250 for Mr Lewis, assistant overseer, Llandyssil.—The medical officers, Dr Waters and Dr Morgan were appointed public vaccinators for their respective districts.— The Clerk announced that the duration of the appointment of the nurse who received the office temporarily three months ago had now expired. The matron, on being called in, gave the nurse an excel- lent character, and it was decided that she should be re-appointed for a fortnight, and in the mean- time, the doctor's certificate should be obtained.— Mr W. Pryce (vice-chairman), expressed the loss which the Union had sustained in the death of Col Harrison. When he resigned the chairmanship of the Board, they knew the precarious state of his health, but cherished a lingering hope that he would be spared to come amongst them again. It seemed a remarkable providence that that day monta they adjourned that Board in order to attend the rejoicings in connection with the coming- of-age of his elder son. In the death of the Colonel the county had sustained an irreparable loss, and Montgomery would especially feel his death. He begged to move that the Clerk write to Mrs Harrison and family, expressing the great sorrow which the Board felt and their sincere sympathy with them in their bereavement.—The Chairman thought that perhaps no one could propose that motion better than their Vice-Chairman, who had so long been connected with the Chairman of that Board, or else he would have performed that duty himself. He had known Col Harrison for a good many years and he could only state that everything which had been said there on that and former occasions respecting that gentleman had met with the approbation of every member of the Board. He was sure that they all shared in the grief that had befallen Mrs Harrison and family. He seconded the motion.—Mr E. R. James and Mr E. H. Morris, in feeling terms supported the resolution, the latter gentleman stating that the gentlemen in the county would do well to follow the example of Col Harrison. They would find that it would be to their own advantage and the benefit of those around them.
CHIRBURY RURAL DISTRICT COUNCIL. Mr E. H. Morris in the chair.—The appointment of a Surreyor for Worthen district being on the agenda, the Chairman said that he had received a commission from Mr Hole, who was prepared to accept the appointment at a salary of £17 10s per annum.—On the motion of Mr E. Price, Mr Hole was appointed nem con.—As the result of a com- munication from the Local Government Board the notification of Diseases. Act was adopted on the proposition of Mr R. Hotchkiss.
PERSONAL, Major Pryce-Jones, M.P., and Mrs Pryce-Jones, were amongst those who attended the PresIdent of the United Chambers of Commerce of the Empire and Mrs. Chamberlain's Reception at the Imperial Institute on Saturday last, to meet His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales.

Both her ladyship and Sir Wat kin attended the parish church on Sunday morning. Mr W. Bowen Rowlands, Q.C. has been admitted to the communion of the Church of Rome, to which his wife and daughter belong.
