Human Folly. A man, seeing a wasp creeping into a bottle filled with honey, that was hanging on a fruit tree, said thus: Why, thou sottish animal, art thou mad to go into that vial where you may see many of your kind there dying before youi The reproach is just," answered the wasp, but not from you men, who are so far from taking ex- ample by other people's follies, that you will not take warning by your own. If, after falling several times into this vial, and escaping by chance, I- should fall in again, I should then resemble you. = DEAN SWIFT. » —
Virtue. There is but one pursuit in life which it is in the power of all to fohow, and of all to attain. It is subject to no disappointments, since he that per- severes makes every difficulty an advancement and every contest a victory; and this is the pursuit of virtue. Sincerely to aspire after virtue is to gain her, and zealously to labour after her wages is to receive them. Those that seek her early, will find her before it is late her reward also is with her, and she will come quickly. For the breast of a good man is like a little heaven commencing on earth, where the Diety sits enthroned with un- rivalled influence, every subjugated passion, like the wind and storm, fulfilling His word." .CO,LTON. ♦

I Spring and Summer. I The golden line is drawn between winter and .summer. Behind, all is bleakness, and darkness, and I dissolution. Before is hope and soft airs, and the ■ flowers, and the sweet season of hay; and people I will cross the fields, reading, or walking with one ■ another (lovers) and instead of the rain that soaks I death into the heart of green things, will be the rain which they drink with delight; and there ■ will be sleep on the grass at taid-day, and early rising in the morning, and long moonlight evenings with quiet walks; and we shall sit with our window open and hear the rooks. ■ Already the rains are well tempered. We care ■ not for the chillness, for it is vernal, the cold of a young hand instead of an old one; and at noon, when the sun slips from out of a blue interval of sky, we feel him warm on our backs. Passing the top of the green lane a gush of song bursts out upon us from the ivy-bush that clothes ■ the sides of the old house. H See I-birds come by fives and tens in the ■ meadows, agile, unseen before, springing away with H a song. And the tops of the horse-chestnut boughs looked as if they glowed into the air with life.

I The Open Air. It's indoors as kills half the people; being in- doors three parts of the day, and next to that, taking too much drink and vittals. Eating's as oaa as drinking; and there ain't nothing like fresh air ^.nd the smell of the woods. You should come out here in the spring, when the oak timber is tbrowed, and just sit down on a trunk fresh peeled a»d sniff up the scent of that oak-bark. It goes right down jour throat and preserves your lungs as the tan do leather. There's always a smell from the woods, and the air is better w^ere the woods be. never eat but two meals a day—breakfast and supper— what you call dinner—and maybe a lunch of (iry bread and an apple in the middle of the ^ay,. I take a deal for breakfast, and I'm rather huigvy at supper; but you may be sure that's why 1 in the way of health. People stuff themselves, and that's why they are ill. Fresh air is lije, sir. There's the smell of the earth specially, just as the plough turns it up—which is a fine thing—md the hedges and the grass are as sweet as sugar after a shower. Anything with a green leaf is the thing, depend upon it, if you want to live healthy. Fresh -air, exercise, frugal food and drink, the oiotr of the earth and trees—these had given him, a* he tfienrs his 60th year, the strength and vitality of early manhood."—JEFFERIES—The Oamcteepet at Home. »
The Glory of Work. Home. » The Glory of Work. I We must have a better thought about work. It 1 must not seem to us ignominious. I hear a great deal said about workmen and working men. Politicians say a great deal about them. They are praised very much in the papers. And God forbid that I, who came from the loins of a whole generation of working men, that I, who have the blood of saddlers and blacksmiths in my veins, should not have an interest in working men; but I would a great deal rather hear you talk about ,rvorJi than about working men. In this day and ;age of the world, praise in this matter should be such as to make men willing to bend their backs an work, and to give them an appetite for it. Bring up your children, then, to feel that they must work •early, and skilfully, and intelligently, and con- tinuously, and that by work they must make themselves independent, labouring with their hands, that they may have, as the apostle says, Something to give those who are in need." Do not expect a legacy. Do not expect a division of your father's estate. Be honourable. Be manly. Cultivate a spirit of independence. Be proud that you are working out your own fortune. There is a pride which is ignominious; and there is a pride which is honourable. I love to hear a man say, and I honour a man who says, standing respected and strong in life, I am not indebted to fortune for my property. I earned it by the sweat of my brow. I baptised every dollar of it." Money so consecrated by honest work usually stays by a Kan —and it usually has a man to stay by. • WARD BEECHER. —and it usually has a man to stay by. WARD BEECHER.
TOWYN ADVANCING. The Magician's Wand. BY "PHILIP SIDNEY." Towyn to-day is a vastly improved place to what it was quarter of a century ago, nay, even to what it was but ten years since. Before the improver's and developer's wand was stretched over it with such magic effect, the place was a small town," as an old guide book terms it, about a mile inland, and with no houses on the sea j frqnt. Now we find a row of large, well-built stone houses facing the glorious strand, with but one of the widest and most compact marine promenades in the Kingdom between them and the sea. It seems as if houses, promenade, glass shelter, drives, and people had suddenly been cast ashore from the sea, and wisely said," We've come to stay." What has happened ? Two words can sum it all, up, and they spell JOHN CORBETT. It was on the sixth day of November, in the year of our Lord, one thousand, eight hundred and eighty-nine that John Corbett, Esquire, M.P., D.L., J.P., C.A., owner of ancient Ynysmaengwyn, the well known seat, near Towyn, laid the stone of that series of improvements, which has resulted in the goodly sight which greets our eyes. A marble block at the end of the South Marine Parade tells all who read it that the sea wall, esplanade, and drive- were constructed by John Corbett, Esquire, and presented by him to the public." This tablet, recording the gifts, was placed here, by Mr R. R. idavies, of Towyn, who voiced the opinion of grateful inhabitants that Mr Corbett s munificence should be preserved and kept in mind by future generations. The Esplanade in itself, without mention of the houses which Mr Corbett has since erected by it, is worthy of an especial visit, and is seen, perhaps, at its best, when many visitors are promenading on its well kept surface, or reclining on the ample seats with good backs; the sea rolling in close to its wall, and the setting sun bathing all in a golden glow. In the centre of the Esplanade stands a shelter, at once ornamental, graceful, and useful, so con- structed as always to afford some place in which to sit where no wind will catch you. A modestly placed inscription over its land and sea fronts records the fact that it was presented to the inhabitants of Towyn, in commemoration of the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty, Queen Victoria, by John Corbett, of Ynysmaengwyn, and of Impney, Co., Worcester, in the year 1897. The houses flanking the Esplanade are con- structed with an eye to solidity, capacity, and general utility. With their well kept gardens, and balconies opening out from the various rooms, commanding an extensive sweep of sea and landscapes, they;seem to be the very ideal places in which jaded paterfamilias and his run down wife can recruit their nerves while the olive branches disport them- selves on the beach below. The broad straight road which leads from the centre of the town to the sea is fast being occupied on either side with houses of various pleasing design and size. — j The Towyn Tennis Club with its greenest of green courts occupies a prominent place on one side of this road, and with an active committee of manage- ment is determined to deserve, tren if it cannot command success. It is well to bear in mind the fact that the small things tell in the long run in building up a watering place to which visitors shall over and over again repair. They are the best judges of what they want, yes, and of what they will get when away for a holiday, and in this want, tennis, cricket, and golf find honourable place. The spacious market place, hard by the Ancient Church of St. Cadfan, is another example of Towyn's indebtedness to Mr. Corbett. Here we find a public clock, and war telegrams, more massive stone work, and that general look of substantial building so characteristic a feature of the master of Ynysmaengwyn. Enter the renovated church, and you shall see that too bears mark of his generosity, for was not the west window filled with stained glass by him ? Nor alone is it in what Mr Corbett has himself done, that the power of the magician's ward is seen; the effects are visible in the contagion caught from his example by others in the town. On all sides there is that general air of progress which betokens a lesson well learnt. New houses are built, and about to be built, and old ones are being restored. The Corbett Arms Hotel finds it necessary to grow, and like all wise people it looks to its top, and there- to is adding an upper storey. Minstrels too have an eye to business, and are likely to be found here this season. Niggers, as children, aye and grown ups too, familiarly like to call them, resemble barometers. The moment they see a likely sea side resort, growing and thinking no small beer" of itself, down they come upon its shores with all the latest cHt.t.1"" -& We may not all want niggers,' but they have a place to fill in the short yearly season of the life of a watering place, and assuredly where they are to be heard, there also will the children gather. And if the bairns, barelegged and brown be in the appreciative audience, rest assured the parents are not far off, and in their pockets is the money, so necessary to the life of the lodging house keeper. The District Council, with that wisdom which characterizes their proceedings, will do well to see from the very beginning that never a song is sung nor a joke made which shall bring a blush to the cheeks of its purest minded girl visitor. Let it once be known and felt that Towyn and its minstrels are above reproach, then all will be well, and the magician's wand will not have called up from Vasty deep all that goes to make the material Towyn a place as sweet and as pure as the air which cradles it. In such progress towards prosperity and growth as is now seen in Towyn, the public press, the true function of which is to build up and not to pull down, cannot but rejoice, and lend a hand. Hence it is that we would add our word' appreciative and sincere, in grateful recognition of all that Mr. Corbett has done to leave Towyn better than he found it; better in education, better in | buildings, better both morally and socially.
SOME OLD RECORDS OF CARDIGANSHIRE. There is an enormous mass of documents relating to Wales lying unindexed and not sorted in the Public Record Office. Amongst the most inter- esting are the Gaol Files of the Court of Great Sessions. These include all the official documents, such as coroner's inquisition, recognizances, pre- sentments, etc., which came before the Judges in the Court of Great Sessions. These documents, as far as they relate to Cardi- ganshire, stretch from 34 H. viii. (1540) down to 1830, a period of nearly three hundred years. Unfortunately, the earlier documents are in a filthy condition, and have never been properly cleaned or repaired, so that it is almost impossible to read them at present. It is proposed to give occasional extracts from these Gaol Files and other similar documents relating to the County of Cardigan. The following extracts will be found interesting, as they are the presentments to the Grand Jury of the County at the Great Sessions in the year 1627. It is difficult to locate some of the references, but perhaps natives of the different localities can do so. Where is Dole Glessui ? The reading of Glessni is rather uncertain, as the record is torn. Can it be D61 Glais ? Where is Vagna bridge in the parish of Gartheli ? Evidently it is one of the bridges over the Aeron. The reference to the Tregaron inn-keeper who sold liquor on the mountain to thieves is very in- teresting. Traditions are still rife in the neigh- bourhood of Tregaron of the depredation of Plant Mat and the Simwniaid, who were a terrible pest to the inhabitants of Tregaron and the neighbour- hood. Cappel Gynvill is of course Capel Gwynfil, the present village of Llangeitho. Griffith ap Evan was evidently one of the roving bards (clerwyr), who are so often mentioned in the Welsh litera- ture of that period. It was to guard against such impostors that the Eisteddfod was established. Following is our first instalment of these inter- esting: old records:- We present Morgan John of the parish of Llan- goydmor for a common drunkard. Item we present the sayd Morgan for disturbinge the minister at the time of divine service on Sunday beinge the 9th day of September 1627. Item we present Katherin William widdow for a common Barratrix. Item we present Elizabeth verch Griffith mason widdow for a common scold. Item we present Thomas James of Cardigan for keepinge y boulinge alie (bowling-aliey.) Item we present the said Thomas ffor beatinge and throwinge downe the Constable. Item we present Edwart William for keepinge a bawdie house. Item we present Elizabeth Lloyd als Llanlleer for a common scould. Item we present George Lewis of the parish of Verwicke for bringinge two carrlods (cart-loads) of sheepe into the market place to sell on Sunday at the time/of evensonge service beinge the xxil of September, 1627. Item we piesent that the Pillorie is not as yet erected. We the grand jurors present that the highe waye in Dole Glessni (?j in the parishe of Llanbadarn vawr is insufficient and dangerous to travell on and ought to be repayrod by the inhabitants of the Lordshippe of Vaynor in the sd Parish. We present that the one end of the Bridge called Vagna bridge in the parish of Llanddewibrefi is not repayred, insufficient and ought to be repayred by the inhabitants of Gartheli in the sd parish. We present that the quarters for measuringe of beinge the fourth that of the teale, within the townes of Aberystwyth Caron and Cardigan are more than and not agreeable to the Winchester measure. We present Thomas "Morgan Goch of Llanarth to be an idle, dissolute person wandering about and living in and not labouring according to the statute. We present Lewis Thomas of Llanwnws for the same. We present David ap Rees ap Jenkin of Caron for keeping ale without licence upon the mountaynes at such times as theeves and others resort to the fayres. We present Jenkin Morgan Griffith of the same for keeping ale without licence in a place ineon- venient. We present that the highway betweene a place called Y Goyallt and Cappel Gynvill is dangerous for travelling, and ought to be mended and repayred by the inhabitants of Gynvill in the parish of Llan- ddewi Brefi. We present Griffith ap Efan of Caron for livinge in no lawfull callinge, or course of life, but wander- ing uppe and down with a tober and pipe, roguing and begging. We present Thomas Griffith late of Penbrin for living in no lawfull callinge or course of life, but being a common deputy bayliff under the baliffe of the hundred of Troederoyr and under colour of that office summoning poor men to appear at assizes and sessions and sheriefs courts to the great grievance of the inhabitants.
CEMMES. OBITUARY.—The death took place on May 7th in her 23rd year of Miss Rasalama Barrow, only daughter of the late Rev. R. O. Evans, Congrega- tional minister, Samah. She bad suffered a long illness, which she bore with noble fortitude. On Thursday last, there was a large assembly to follow her mortal remains to the burying-ground of the Congregational Chapel. At the house, the Rev. J. M. Williams, Towyn, read a portion of the scriptures and prayed, and at the chapel the Rev. Mr. George Oswestry, officiated. The Rev. Gower Richards, the present pastor, then delivered a few words appropriate to the occasion. The congregation was also addressed by the Revs. Wnion Evans, Machynlleth; J. C. Jones, Llanfyllin; and Josiah Jones, Machynlleth; the three rev. gentlemen giving the deceased a high moral character, and showed that her life had been full of labour on behalf of the Congregational cause in the place. At the graveside, the Rev. R. E. Davies, Dinas Mawddwy, officiated. Much sympathy is felt for Mrs. Evans, mother of the deceased, who still sur- vives. There were also present at the funeral, the Rev. W. Thomas, Aberhosan Rev. Weidon Jones, Bradford Mr. J. Parry, J.P., Bala Inspector Parry, Cambrian Railways, Portmadoc; Miss Parry, Bontddu, and others.
BALA. THEOLOGICAL.-At the usual meeting of the Students' Missionary Union, Mr J. Rowlands, pre- siding, a splendid paper was read by Mr E. G. Jones on Pulpud yn'g Nghymru." Several others made remarks in the subject. FFAIR CALAN.-MAi.-The above annual fair was held here on Monday last. As usual, the town was filled with farmers, business men and others. As this is also the usual time of hiring 'farm servants. The fair is considered one of the most if not the most important fairs of the year here. A large stock of live stock was on sale in the Green, where an auction mart has been started some time ago by Messrs R. LI. Jones and W. T. Ellis, auctioneer, with good results. Excellent order was maintained during the day. URBAN DISTRICT COUNCIL.-Special meeting, Friday, May 11th. Present: Mr R. W. Roberts (chairman), Messrs D. Jones (Birmingham House), R. Ll. Jones, Edward Jones, D. W. Jones, W. T. Jones, H. Ll. Davies, T. R. Dakin (deputy clerk), D. R. Roberts (surveyor).—The meeting was called to consider, among other things, an application by Mrs Carney for consent to construct a bay window on her property at 8 High-street. The projection asked for was 15 inches on to the parapet. It was resolved upon the motion of Mr R. Ll. Jones, c^r>nrlfid hv Mr Edward Jones, that the application be granted on the usual terms as far as this Council has jurisdiction in the matter.—The Street Com- mittee recommended that a lad be engaged for the months of June, July, August and September to assist in street cleaning. Upon the motion of Mr D. Jones (Birmingham House), seconded by Mr R. Ll. Jones, the recommendation was adopted.—A further recommendation by the Committee, that an advertisement be inserted twice in the Eryr-one of the local papers-inviting applications, and the advertisement to be drawn up by the Clerk, was also adopted.—It was decided to adopt the recom- mendation of the Street Committee, viz., that the Surveyor procure from 18 to 24 street gullies and fix them where required as soon as possible. The Committee had this also under their considera- tion and they recommended putting up a Notice Board in Plasey, near Caemawr, warning persons against the practice of throwing rubbish there. The recommendation was adopted. The Street Committee recommended with regard to the parapet already decided to be made from the corner of Tremaran House to the corner of Mrs Williams. Tremaran's house, that it be made one yard in width.—Mr D. Jones (joiner) proposed and Mr H. Ll. Davies seconded, that the report be adopted.—Mr R. LI. Jones moved an amendment and Mr Edward Jones seconded, that the sidewalk be not made no wider than half a yard. The original motion was declared carried, the division showing two in favour of the amendment and five for the original motion.—Mr R. LI. Jones enquired what decision bad been come to with regard to the plans of the stage for the Sassiwn.'—The Chair- man and the Deputy Clerk reported that the Clerk advised them that he could not see that the Council could interfere in the matter, although it would be very desirable.
