LLANGURIG. GENEROUS GIFTS TO THE VILLAGE. — In the autumn of 1887 the late Colonel Lloyd-Verney, Clochfaen, learned that this village was ill supplied with water. Early in the following year he set about to remedy this unsatisfactory con- dition. He withyhe late agent of the estate drew up a scheme and let the contract to Mr Marpole, Llanidloes. This afforded an abundant supply of water at all times except during the long drought. that prevailed during the last few summers. With characteristic generosity Mrs Lloyd-Verney resolved to increase the supply by erecting at another source a. tank of large capacity. This has been done, and it is intended that the Vicarage and the houses at the lower end of the village should be supplied from this new source, while the houses at the opposite end should be supplied as hitherto from the old source. About the central part of the village Mrs Lloyd-Verney has put up a memorial fountain which is for the use of the public. It is colossal in size and pretey ill dusign, and the materials of which it is built are the best. All the work was donu by contract: Mr J T Hum- phreys, Llanidloes, did the masonry, and Mr George, Montgomery, the plumbing. The people of the village very highly appreciate this generous work." Tho design for the fountain was mainly the work of Mr Addie, the agent, who has evolved a struc- ture that will last long after every other building in the parish shall have crumbled away. The following inscription is engraved in gilt letters on the polished granite tablet placed on the fountain" Colonel George Hope Lloyd-Verney, the first water supply in 1883, to the village of Llangurig. This has been extended and completed by Mrs Lloyd-Verney in 1899, as a memorial of her husband's work." He sondeth the springs into the rivers which rati among the hills." Psalm civ., verse 10.
