BALA. PICNIC.-On Friday last a party from Bala went on a picnic to Caereini Lake where they spent a very enjoyable day. One of the poets, who was a member of the party, a chaired and crowned bard to boot, could not refrain from giving expression to the beauties of the Lake. The following was his bardic effusion •.— Oer unig yw Llyn Caereini—a gwyw Pan fo'r gauaf drosti Ond braf yn yr haf yw hi A dedwyddyd dod iddi." SCHOLASTIC.—We are glad to understand that Mr. D. Miall Edwards, B.A., formerly a pupil of Mr. Evans at the Bala Grammar School, afterwards a student at the North Wales University College and the Bala-Bangor Independent College, has been awarded the Mill Hill prize which is annually given at Mansfield, Oxford, for the best results in the College Examination of the year.

Chapel through the principal streets pre- ceded by the Llandderfel Brass Band and by the Medical Officer (Dr. Williams) and his assistant (Dr. White Jones). They presented a very pleasing appearance. An excellent tea was prepared at the Victoria Hall by Hon, Lady Members. The society is in a very flourishing condition. The number on roll at the end of the year was 371.

Howell Hughes, Bala, catechised the assembly in the 8th chapter of the" Hyfforddwr."
