The members of the Radical Club undertook the onerous task of discussing the relative merits of married and single life on Friday last.

Jones, Jenkin Humphreys, Llew. James, Jack Price, Fred Edwards, S. Hopkins, T. B. Hall, and James Rees. THE CASTLE GLTNS.—Ap Llewelyn writes-- Messrs Vickers, Sons & Maxim are now making a new powerful 14 pounder gun. Its weight is only 17 cwt. It can fire 26 rounds per minute, and will perforate ten inches of wrought iron. May I suggest through your valuable paper that the attention of Mr. Lloyd George, and other Welsh members may be drawn to this valuable piece of modern artillery, and it is to be hoped they will use whatever influence they may have at the War W, Office to arrange that the obsolete guns on the Aberystwyth Castle ground may be sold for old iron. and a few of the above guns put in their place. It is the firm opinion of a number of in- telligent Welshmen that one quick firing gun is of greater value, at the present time than a hundred speeches about athe cause of the war in South Africa. B.W.T.A.—The usual weekly meeting was held on Saturday evening in the New Market Hall, being both hearty, orderly, and enthusiastic. The Women who manage these valuable gatherings are to be sincerely congratulated on the success of their persistent efforts, and on the strong hold they have obtained over the number of young men and women who regularly attend.

Jon's and Maria Doughton got up the programme, and Mrs. Hughes and Miss Owen undertook the management of the coffee-stall. The chair was taken by the Rev. George Eyre Evans. MISSIONARY FROM THE TRA,SVAAL.-The Rev. T. I-I. Robinson, who recently preached at St. Michael's Church, has been a priest-in-charge of Vryheid within the Transvaal border. He was obliged to leave two months after the war had commenced. He knows many of the Boers who fought at the Battle of Glencoe. Some English- men from Vryheid, who had become burghers, were compelled to fight on the Boer side on that, occasion, but one of them declared that he had managed to hide himself behind a stone, without liring";t single shot at his countrymen all day. Mr. Rwoifison is a graduate of Exeter College, and a temporary of the Rev. D. Ambrose Jones, at Oxford. He hopes to return to Zululand about Easter. In his opinion, the Boers draw all their conceptions of religion 'from the Old Testament. Their Christianity is imperfect and hollow. Love your enemies not entering into their creed. He dc lares that the Boers themselves would be toler- able enough, but that the Hollanders and foreigners unnmg them do all in their power to make them hate the British. TABERNACLE CHAPEL.—The annual tea meeting in connection with the Sunday School of the above chapel was held on Wednesday last. The follow- iug ladies presided over the tables, Miss Kate Jones, Miss Ellen Jones, Miss Lewis, Powell-street; Miss Lewis, Bridge-street; Miss Griffiths, Trinity-place Miss Myfanwy Evans, Laura-place; Miss Griffiths, Market-street; Miss Maggie James, North-parade Miss Jenkins, The Library; Miss Jenkins, Epworth- terrace; Miss Ellen Davies, Queen-street; Miss Jenkins, Queen-street; Miss Owen, Queen-street; Miss Minnie Davies, Powell-street.

Granville Owen Rd. Williams, and Lewis Thomas. In the evening an entertainment was held, at which Mr. D. D. Williams, U.C.W. and Mr Pickard, U.C.W.. gave a selection of views through their lantern.

THE PAXTON SOCIETY.—A meeting of the Pax- ton Society was held at the College on Wednesday evening, whebout fifty students of the Agricul-. tural Department honoured, the Society with a visit. In the absence of Alderman W. H. Palmer, the chair was taken by Mr. G. Griffiths, Penywern. A carefully prepared paper on Potatoes" was read ttv Mr. Hopkins, Nanteos, who also, with a few selected tubers, illustrated the good and the bad condition of seed previous to planting, and said that the latter condition was the one in which many growers planted their seed, and that it was not to be wondered at that the crop was not a satisfactory one. The different methods of planting and the subsequent treatment of the potato in general, and also the merits and demerits of several kinds mentioned at. the time, were eagerly dis- cussed by the members and visitors. Mr. Hopkins was heartily thanked for his instructive paper. At the next meeting, on the 21st inst., Mr. J. L. Pickard, lecturer on Horticulture at the U.C.W., will favour the Society with a lecture on Peas as a garden crop." It is much to be regretted that so few of t be cottagers and amateur gardeners of the neighbourhood avail themselves of the benefit of this Society. The yearly subscription is only one shilling, and this is a sum that they may lose a hundred-fold for the want of a few timely hints. SKINNER ST.
