CARDIGAN DISTRICT LETTER. On Monday evening next there is to be a public meeting, and one that is certain to Ijpmmand very general attention. The Occasion is to be the presentation to Mr. D. Morgan Jones, Town Clerk, of the several Wedding gifts which have been so universally Subscribed for in town. The gifts of the SCayor and Corporation comprise a marble clock and a pair of bronze ornaments; and the joint gift of the Town Improvements Committee and other public bodies with which Mr. Morgan Jones is actively con- nected is a gold hunter watch with chain. A description of these presents would neces- sitate the use of many much-abused adjec- tives, and it is quite sufficient to say that they represent a substantial amount in Sterling value. The Mayor and Mayoress Of Cardigan will make the several presenta- tions. The proceedings will be fully reported in next week's Gazette." Last year Cilgerran became famous for its End-of-the-Century" Eisteddfod. This Year Cardigan intends to make a stir with ÍtI Fir.st-of-tha-Century Eisteddfod. The IBown Improvements Committee, with the Mayor, Mr. D. Ivor Evans, at its head, are now busily engaged in making the necessary arrangements for holding a Chair Eisteddfod in August. There was a long sitting of the General Committee on Monday evening, when the prize money was allocated to the Several sections, and the sub-committees have now to prepare their sectional pro- grammes for the approval of the General Committee. The following gentlemen have been selected as Presidents (subject to acceptance):—Augustus Brigstocke, Esq., Blaen-pant; Major Webly-Parry-Pryse, NOYlldd Trefawr; and the Mayor of Car- digan. The townspeople are beginning to evidence a lively interest in the development of the new Street, which is to be known as "Morgan- street" connecting Priory-streetand St. Mary- street. The work has been a good deal hin- dered by the unfavourable weather, but it is now progressing apace. The buildings which obstructed the way have been de- molished, and it is evident to all what a Splendid acquisition to the town the new Street will be. Cardigan has this week been privileged to welcome unobtrusively, perhaps, but none the less sincerely, one of the heroes of the war—Mr H. J. Bowen, son of the Rev A. J. Bowen, formerly of Troedyraur. Mr Bowen was one of the gallant defenders of Kimber- ley, and as captain to the Town Guard, whilst heading a sortie during the siege he sustained most severe injuries, the marks of which ill follow him to his grave. Thanks to the almost miraculous surgical skill of which he had the benefit, Mr Bowen is to-day apparently as vigorous and as sound as ever. His gallantry won recognition from both the military and civilian defenders of Kimberley. Mr Bowen's brother, Mr Eynon Bowen, of Newcastle Emlyn, is still On active service with the Irish Yeomanry.
