THE WELSH GIRLS' SCHOOL, ASHFORD. A most interesting and impressive ceremony took place at the Welsh Girls' School at Ashford last Saturday afternoon, on the occasion of the laying of the corner stone of the new chapel by Miss Ida Maude Bevan. In the unavoidable absence of Lord Llangattock, treasurer of the Most Honourable and Loyal Society of Ancient Britons, the senior vice-treasurer, Mr J. Lewis Thomas, F.S.A., presided over the proceedings. The ceremony commenced with the singing of a hymn by the children, and after Rev. J. S. Brownrigg had read srayers, Mr Lewis Thomas placed the re- ports of the society and certain coins in the cavity of the stone, after which Miss I. M. Bevan, with charming earnestness, proceeded to lay the stone, and to prove it by plumb-rule, level and square. After the singing of another hymn, Very Rev. the Dean of St. Asaph delivered a very eloquent and able address, and closed the service with the Bless- ing. After the ceremony, the children gave a beautiful rendering of Hen Wlad Fy Nhaddau and God save the Queen." The company included Mr J. Lewis Thomas, F.S.A. (senior vice-treasurer), Mrs Harley Thomas, the Very Rev the Dean of St: Asaph (junior vice-treasurer), Mr Stanley Leighton, M.P., Mrs and Miss Leighton, Mr A. H. and Miss Ida M. Bevan, Rev J. S. and Miss Brownrigg, Mr Charles J. Davies, Rev Evan Jones, Mr Hamilton Price, Mr and Miss Simner, and many others.
