LLANGRANOG. UNIQUE PRESENTATIONS.—At a meeting held last week at the Pontgarreg schoolroom, Llan- granog, Capt. R. P. Jordan, Pigeonsford, and Mr J. Martin Evans, Cefncwrt, both of whom are now serving with the forces in South Africa, were each presented by the parishioners with a splendid silver cup, with the following inscription;—" Pre- sented by the Parishioners of Llangranog to (name r 11 here) as a token of their appreciation of his ser- vices for his Queen and Country during the Trans- vaal War, 1899." The Rev D. Griffiths, rector of the parish, presided, and after a stirring opening speech called upon the following persons to address the meeting, viz., Dr Powell, Newcastle Emlyn; Dr Griffiths, Llangranog; Mr H, Kingscote, Pigeonsford; Rev L. Evans, Chapel Wig; Mr Thos. Evans, Cefncwrt; Mr J. Davies, schoolmaster; Mr J. Jones, Bwlchclawdd; and Mr Jeremiah Jones, Cilie The speeches, which showed an intimate knowledge of the stirring events of our days were all of an encouraging tone, and full of enthusiasm. The programme also consisted of part songs by the school children; solo by Mr James Jones, Trecregin; and duett by Messrs Evan Davies, Factory, and Willie Mathias, Ship and Anchor. The presenta- tions were necessarily by proxy. Mr H. Kingscote presented the cup to Capt. R. P. Jordan, who was represented by Dr. Powell; and Miss Maggie Jones, Ivy House, presented the cup to Mr J. Martin Evans, who was represented by his father, Mr Thomas Evans, a member of the Cardiganshire County Council. A gift of money was presented to the wife of Mr Owen Jenkins, Dowlais, both of whom are connected by family ties to this parish. The refrain For he's a jolly good fellow," was sung by the crowded audience with great gusto after each presentation; and another prolonged outburst of the same refrain was given to Colonel, now Major-General Baden Powell, in honour of the relief of Mafeking. Singing of the National Anthem brought a unique and interesting gathering to a clost.
