IMIa\fI _1R6I[ CARDIGAN DISTRICT LETTER THE TOWN CLERK'S PRESENTATIONS. The proceedings at the public function in connection with the presentation of the wedding gifts to Mr. D. Morgan Jones, town clerk of Cardigan, held at the Guildhall on Monday evening, were most enthusiastic. The platform was fully occupied by men of light and leading, reprtsenting not only the Z5 y municipal, but the social and religious life Cardigan, and the Hall was filled with the x. bridegroom's admirers, of both sexes. The presentations were made respectively by the Mayor and Mayoress, and of necessity the speeches, of which there were many, em- bodied most gracious tributes to the ability and character of Mr. Morgan Jones. While (J.IO must have been painfully self-conscious during the ordeal, he must have felt proud of his record as so generously recognised by JIis fellow townsmen. The occasion was one which should give purpose to the lives of other young men, for it was evidence of tha reul success which constant and well-dirécted Effort merits. Mr. Jones enters upon his married career with the unanimous God- speed of the town. RECRUITS WAKTKD. The appeal of the War Office for more recruits for the South African graveyard is --not likely to meet with further response in Cardigan. The local company of Volunteers was summoned last week, but only 25 paraded, and there was no response to thea call." It is not yet known whether any ofH the four local men of the Waiting ICO. will re-eulist for a fresh term of twelve months. There is no doubt that the experiences of a Cardigan boy returned from the war, as well -as the ghastly exposures in the Press, account for this want of military ardour. The War Office also wants horses—and Cardigan men are good at a bargain 9 0 CARDIGAN CYCLING CLUB. B This Club holds a splendid record o uniform success, from a business stind-poitit.

( The Literary Society has thus far had a most satisfactory session, and the strikingffiL 0 features of the Syllabus are yet to come.
