DOLGELLEY. PULPIT SUPPLY.—Bethel M.C. pulpit was filled last Sunday by the Rev. Richard Hughes, B.D., Bournemouth (late of Aberystwyth) whose able sermons were thoroughly appreciated. ILLNESS.—We regret that Miss Pritchard, the head mistress of the Infants' School has been ill for some time and confined to her bed for several weeks. We sincerely hope that she will have a speedy and complete recovery. SCHOOL STAFF.—After having an interview with some of the candidates on Saturday, the School Board appointed Mr. Peter Williams, B.A.. Dol- gellev, assistant master to the Boys' School, and Miss Ellen Hughes, Llanengan, assistant mistress to the Infants' School. Mr. Peter Williams, pre- vious to entering Aberystwyth College (where, in addition to the normal course studied for the Welsh B.A. and graduated), he served under the Dolgelley School Board. PREACHING SERVICES.—The Baptists have ar- ranged their annual preaching services to be held on Tuesday and Wednesday, September 26th and 27th, and the Hev.

Jones in the 72nd year of his age. He was a native of Carmel in this neighbourhood and emigrated to America in the year 1871. He was a highly respectable and successful farmer. He leaves a widow and three children. UNION CONTRACTS.—One of the tradesmen of the town has written a strong letter to a local paper protesting against the way the Union Con- tracts were let at the last meeting of the Guardians. Although his tender was the lowest sent in for certain articles, he did not get it, although he had supplied the same articles for the previous six months to the satisfaction of the officials He states that the fact that the contract was not given to the lowest will be a loss of Z6 to the ratepayers. THE AGRICULTURAL SHOW.—The Show turned out successfully in every respect. The day was favourable, and a larger number than usual travelled to Dolgelley with the trains arranged by the Show Committee, and a good number visited the Show, and the gate money was an increase on previous years. The entries were good, and the Committee are to be heartily congratulated on the general success of the Show. CRICKET. On Wednesday, the Dolgelley Cricket Club divided against itself, which we suppose is a sign that the season is drawing to a close. A match was arranged between the residents and natives, with the result that the residents won by two runs. The individual scores were as follows :— RESIDENTS. T. R. S. Furlong, b J. Williams.23 F.
