YR WYTHNOS. Bu rw yn ddiweddar hen wr yn Vienna yr hwn yn ystt)J saith mlynedd ar hugain a yfoid 28,786 o laseiciiau o gwrw a thrwy ei oes a ysmociodd 528,7130 sigars Sonir fod Siefyllfa. iechyd Kruger. yr hvrn sydd etto yn y Cyfandir, yn beryglus < wael. Gweinyddir arno yn gysson gan dri o feddygon. Dy-vyd barfvrr o'r enw James Jones o flaen yr ynadun yn Aberystwyth dydd Sadwrn am iddo ddian-j o'i gartref a gadael ei wraig a'i blant i ofal y plwyf. Dedfrydwyd ef i garcbar am dri mis. Ar ol prawf maith a barodd am chwe diwrnod, cafwyd Benjamin Greene Lake, cyfreitbwr enwog yn Llundain, yn euog o gamddefnyddo arian a osodwyd i'w ofal gan gwsmeriaid. Bu y carcharor yn un o'r gwyr mwyaf blaenllaw a pharchus yn ei alwedigaetb, ac am dymhor bu yn Gadeirydd ar yr Incorporated Law Society," yr anrbydedd uchaf fedrat ei gyfeillion gosod arno. Credai pawb ei fod yn wr arianog ac ymddiriedai rhai o'i gwsmer- iaid yr holl o'u beiddo i'w ofal. Ymddengys mae ar y cyfoeth hwn y porthai Lake ei angbenion costfawr, ac am ei gamymddygiad o honynt ded- frydwyd ef i garcbar am ddeuddeg mlynedd. Bydd yn dda gan lawer i hen walch ddeall fod yr awdurdodau ar fedr cau y carchar yn Aberhon- ddu a Cbaerfyrddin. Y rheswm am hyn yw fod nifer y troseddwyr a ddedfrydir i'r lleoedd hyny mor fychan fel y mae y traul o'u cadw yno yn afresymol o uchel ac yn fwy mewn cvfartaledd nag odid mewn uurhyw le cyffelyb yn y deyrnas. Fel rbeol, 22 yw nifer yr ymwelwyr yn Nghaerfvrddiu ac ar gyfer y rbai hyn cyflogir 11 o swyddogion, fel y mae un swyddog ar gyfet pob dan o'r carcharion. Pan yityrir fod y carchar yn Nghaerfyrddin yn gwasanaethu i dair sir, sef Aberteifi, Penfro, a Chaerfyrddin, mae yn destyn llawenydd eu bod yn methn rhoddi digon o waith iddo. Buan iawn yr anghofir gwasanaeth ein milwyr yn erbyn y Boeriaid. Ymddangosodd gwirfoddolwr gerbron Bwrdd y Guardians yn Shrewsbury y dydd o'r blaen gan erfyn am gymhorth.

Mae yn ddiameu fod y llaw-feddygon ar y cyfan- dir yn gwneyd llawer mwy o gynydd yn ei galwedi- gaeth nag a wneir gan eu cyfodion yn y wlad hon. Y dydd o'r blaen, dygwyd dynes i ysbytty mewn tref yn yr Almapn yn dioddef o herwydd cancer yn y cyila, y clefyd mwyaf poenus ac anobeithiol efallai mewn bodolaeth.

MACHYNLLETH. INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL GOVERNORS. The monthly meeting of the governors of the Machynlleth County School was held on Friday afternoon last, when there were present, Mr Rich. Rees, J.P. (chairman), Rev D. T. Hughes, Mr John Thomas, Dr A. 0. Da vies, Messrs T. R. Morgan, W. M. Jones, and John Rowlands (clerk). DEATH OF THE Q.VEEN. The Chairman said he believed their first duty that day as a public body was to refer to the sorrowful news of our beloved Queen s death, which bad cast a gloom not only over Great Britain, but over the whole world, and had created a universal sorrow. Undoubtedly no greater Sovereign had ever ruled over the British people who had been beloved and honoured by her subjects more than Queen Victoria, and he was glad to say by none more than by her Welsh subjects. The Queen was dead, yet, in a higher sense-in her great example and lasting influence for good, and in the love of her people, and in the honour of the world -Queen Victoria would live long, and very long indeed. Dr Davies, in supporting, said their late Queen's influence would live for a very long time. When the time came to write the history of her life, it would be a page that could always be referred to and examples taken from it for all men and women. She was dead, but her memory would live for ever. No people were more loyal than the Welsh people, and in the present circumstances no one would sympathise more with the Royal Family than the Wpl"b people. Rev D. T. Hughes said that the late Queen Victoria was undoubtedly, one, if not the most potent factor in the peace of Europe and the civilized world. He attributed her personal power not so much to the fact that her family bad inter- married amongst the Royal Families of the leading countries of Europe, such as Russia and Germany, but also to her own personal tact, wisdom, and strength of character.—Mr W. M. Jones said they could not do less than respect her memory, for she was a noble woman, and her influence always was for good. She had risen the standard of morality, and her Court was pure. Her pure and religious example in life secured for her the respect of the whole world. -Mr T. R. Morgan said while they all mourned what had happened, they could well feel proud and honoured of her long and successful reign—a reign in which more progress had been made than in any other previous reign. The Queen's iufluence and example had always been on the side of righteousness and peace, Her Court had been a pure Court, and it had been an example to the world in that respect. All they could hope was that the traditions of the Court as they had existed in her time would be carried out in the reign of the new King. The Clerk was then instructed to draw up a resolution of sympathy and to forward it to the Royal Family. VOTE OF CONDOLENCE. The Chairman referred to the death of Mrs Meyler, wife of their headmaster, which had taken place after a long and painful illness, He was sure they all sympathized very much with Mr Meyler in his great bereavment, and he moved that they send him an expression of condolence. Dr Davies seconded, and said Mr Meyler had passed through a most trying time, both in mind and body. Yet he had carried out his duty towards the school thoroughly and with tact. The resolution of sympathy was then carried unanimously. SCHOOL REGULATIONS. The Clerk reported that with two exceptions the persons who boarded pupils of the school had now filled in the list of questions submitted by the governors. He bad repeatedly applied to these two persons, but failed to get any reply.—Mr Morgan thought it was a great pity these people did not reply, as the thing had now been hanging about for three months.—Mr John Thomas thought they were treating the governor very shabbily.— The Chairman offered to call upon the two persons in question with the object of securing their com- pliance with the request made to them, and this having been agreed to, the Clerk was directed to call a meeting of the committee to consider the question of boarding-out as soon as all the replies bad been received. SCIENCE AND ART GRANTS. The Clerk reported that a grant of £ 3 10s 6d had been received from the Science and Art Department, and a further grant of il,3,1 lis 3d, making a total of iC39 Is 9d, THE LATE PROF HUGHES. The Clerk read a letter from Mrs Hughes Regent's Park, London, thanking the governors for' their kind expression of sympathy with her in her sad bereavement. It was, she said, some little comfort to her in her great sorrow to know that so many loved and respected her dear husband so well. ANNUAL INSPECTION. A letter was read from Mr Owen Owen, chief inspector under the Central Welsh Board, stating that the Annual inpection of this School would take place this term. The inspector also pointed out that according to the Scheme the governors were directed to set apart a certain amount of their maintenance money for maintaining a proper school plant and apparatus. The amount thus required was about el4 a year.—Mr T. R. Morgan: What is meant by that?-The Clerk: I believe it means the necessary furniture, such as chairs and tables.— The Clerk was authorised to set ashle the necessary sum as required by the Scheme. The Clerk read a further letter from the Clerk to the Montgomery County Governing Body stating that the Chief Inspector would visit Machynlleth for the purpose of inspecting the school on March 18th, and he would be glad to meet the governors at the close of the inspection. DRILL FOR GIRLS. Dr Davies drew attention to the fact that they bad had the sergeant-instructor of the local volunteer's drilling the boys at the school. It struck him very forcibly and other people who took an interest in the school, that it was one-sided that the boys should be drilled and the girls not. Drill- ing was as important he thought, to the girls as to the boys, and he moved that they at once take steps to ask the instructor whether be would undertake togdrill the girls as well as the boys.—Mr T. R. Morgan seconded, and said he thought physical culture was quite as necessary up to a certain ex- tent for girls as well as boys. Mr John Thomas and Mr W. M. Joins concurred with the proposition but the Rev 1). T. Hughes thought it was a matter they might well have the opinion of the Head- master upon.—Dr Davies' resolution was then carried, and the Clerk was directed to ascertain the terms upon which the instructor would drill the girls twice a week for periods of half-an-hour each time. INCREASE OF SCHOLARS. The Clerk reported that the number of pupils on the school regVter was now 81, which was the largest number yet enrolled. CYMREIGYDDION SOCIETY. PRINCIPAL ROBERTS ON "ADDYSG AC EGWYDDOR." The Cymdeithas Cymreigyddion, Machynlleth, held its usual forinightly meeting on Wednesday evening, January 23rd, when there present:—Mr John Rowlands (president), Rev D. T. Hughes (vice-president), Mr W. M. Jones (treasurer), Rev Wnion Evans and Ap Gwyddon (secretaries), Revs Canon Trevor, Jusiah Jones, Edward Williams, aid Ffoulkes-Roberts, Messrs D. R. Griffiths, Edward Rees, Richard Rees, J. G. Jenkins (bank),. Evan Jones, B.A., Evan Phillip Evans, J. C. Ashton, Fielding, Lloyd Jones, D. Philip Jones, etc.. The Chairman, in a touching manner, dsew attention to the sad event which has befallen eour nation through the death of her gracious Majesty the Queen, and suggested that the Society should record this painful fact of history on their minutes. The,Rev Josiah Jones,inafew well-chosen remarks.. moved a resolution to that effect. He said he remembered the time of her coronation, and he liked to think of this event as he did of that event that it was also a day of coronation, and that she bad been called t6 receive her eternal crown of peace. Canon Trevor having seconded the proposition in an eloquent and appropriate address, it was agreed to in silence. On the motion of Mr Edward Rees, seconded by Mr J. G. Jenkins, it waa agreed to send a telegram of condolence to his Majesty the King in his bereavement. After some other minor items of business had been transacted, the Society prepared itself to listen to Principal Roberts, of the University College, Aberystwyth, who was to deliver an address on the subject of Addysg ac Egwyddor," which implied the ideas of a perfect education. Principal Roberts started with a graceful tribute to the memory of his late fii«nd, T. E. Ellis. He then read several extracts from Llyfr y Tri Aderyn, and dwelt more particularly on that which referred to the people who wandered, and to prevent their being lost finger-posts were raised, and, according to the allegory, the first finger-post to be placed up was that of knowledge or educa- tion. This pillar had already been erected in Wales, but there remained a good deal to be done to perfect it. He impressed upon his audience the importance of the country and the people still retaining their interest in the problems of educa- tion. Up to the present they had been deeply interested, and had taken their due share in the responsible work of carrying out the educational system. But there was a danger that after having attained the machinery of schools, colleges, and University, that the country and people in general would lose their interest, and rely on those people whose profession it was to carry on the work. The educational system of Wales would not be carried to perfection if it lose the interest of the people and drifted into the hands of educationists. The Principal then proceeded to compare the various educational systems on the Continent, and gave his opinion, after personal study in Servia, Germany, Poland, Switzerland and France, upon the problem of European education. He also compared our own system with those of the coun- tries mentioned, and showed that as perfect as we imagined ourselves-and though we are well to the front in Great Britain-we still had many valuable lessons to learn from our Continental neighbours. Principal Roberts next dwelt upon the importance of developing elementary and intermediate educa- tion, and of teaching the teacher. The question of the future education of their pupil teachers, which was exercising the minds of Welsh educationists at the present time, was one of real importance, be- cause the duty of giving effect to all educational ideas was 'entrusted to their bands Every pro- fession now insisted on having a most thorough preliminary education, and it was certainly doubly important in the profession upon which devolved the training of the young. It was true that in certain districts this subject had been dealt with by the formation of pupil teachers centres, but this could not be carried out in the thinly populated and agricultural districts of Wales. It did not matter what plan was carried out as long as it was efficient, and the object in view attained thereby, but in all this there must be sacrifices, particularly on, the part of the parents. There was also the fact that they did not appreciate, or even if they did, they were not able to carry it out in practice, that education must extend over a course of many years. Deal- ing with the question of technical education, the Principal said it really meant the light of science being brought into focus with the ordinary events of man's handicraft. There was in Bootle alone about 12,000 students, learning languages, sciences, arts, and the technicalities of their craft, and the public spirit of that place ex- pended £ 23,000 on its buildings and apparatus. There, not only were science and art taught, but technical education was carried out to its uttermost, He contended it was necessary that a man should study for about four years at least whilst still following his ordinary employment or craft, 1-1 y That it should not be merely a few classes and a polishing here and there, but that it should be a definite and a particular form of education, with particular reference to the ordinary employment of his life. They might well draw a lesson from Austria in this respect, where this continuation of education was already established, and where also the people had to study their national language and its literature. They should not think that this made the man a poorer craftsman. Given a small, limited education, and they had a small-minded, cramped craftsman as a result. What they wanted, in their education was extensiveness, that it should be on a broad and liberal scale, and the more educated a man was, the more enlightened he was even in the literature of his own country, the better would he also be as a craftsman. Thus would they convert their work- men into artists, and it should not for a moment be. considered that education in its widest sense estranged a man from his craft. Proceeding, Principal Roberts said they should look at the question of education by studying the principles that underlay the education of a nation. They should not look at it as merely educating Welshmen to be Welshmen, and to live in Wales, but they must educate their children to face the future, and to take their place in the universal competition of nations. Not that Wales might receive any benefits unto herself from other nations, but that she might be able, through successful competition, to bestow benefits on other nations, and thus benefit herself as well. They need not go outside Wales for the principles or the ideals of education. Although, perhaps, they had the ideals lying dor- mant within them, they had a lot to do in pro- moting purity of religion and in abolishing religious bigotry and narrow sectarianism. Their duty was to permeate society with the higher ideals and aspirations of mankind—not to destroy it but rather to uplift and regenerate it. There was in the Welshman a respect for the leaders of his nation, and for those in the higher ranks of life. This was respect and admiration, and it should not be confused with servitude. It was merely the preception of that which was good which drew out the Welshman's admiration. There were other problems which would have to be attempted in a different form to what they had been, such as poverty, intemperance, etc. They were well- bestowed with patriotism, but he was afraid they bad been dreamers. While retaining their patriotism and their ideals, let them be more practical, and become in very truth, workers. And thus in educating the coming generation they would have prepared men worthy and tit to take their places in the ad minstration of publia affairs of their country. They were still rather imbued with Puritan ideals of life. Those were grand, and the world had need of them. At times, however, it was necessary that the sword should be the invader of a country before the plough. The work of the Puritan was done and well dune. Their work was different. They must not fear to face their work, and form their own ideals, that were suitable to their age. He did not disparage the Puritan spirit, but merely mentioned that its work was done. Their work was to create a new generation, fit to graap the great problems of life as they found them. Educa- tion could not be a success unless governed by proper principles. They must learn to appreciate those principles, and they must learn to trU6i. their own talent and ability, and know their own measure in international competition. What had they as Welshmen underlying their principles. They had the sweet memories of childhood, all the tenderness and charms of their youth, days which memory brought back to them with the feelings of longing. These, undoubtedly had much influence on a Welsh- man's life, but they should not let even these make them an isolated nation. They had their language, its literature, their hopes, and their Drivileces. These must not be obstacles, but should be prin- ciples that strengthened them in their determina- tion to take their part worthily in the battle of life. Let them give their children education, let them imbue them with principles, and the correct and noble ideals of life, so that they might fight against social tyrannies, train their eye to perceive, train their reason tube just, so that the security of their workmen in future would be their self-reliance. If they had these principles men would not be always running after money, but would welcome the ordinary and practical employments of life. It was this lack of knowledge that made the man seek wealth by the shortest way, irrespective of any other personal benefit. What was desired, how- ever, was that the employment of every man should become to him the practising of an art rather than mere manual labour, and that their children should be the means of helping on the progress of civiliza- tion and all i hat was best in mankind. In conclusion, the Principal said that they a* IVelsbrnen, should aspire to good and noble ideals, for as the founda- tion was, so would the superstructure be. The address, which was a thoughtful and able treatise, was listened to with rapt attention. Principal Roberts, in responding to the Society's expression of gratitude, spoke of the pleasure it gave him to be present, and congratulated the Society on its existence. He had taken very great interest in the Society since the first time he heard such a thing was being attempted in Machynlleth. We had felt some doubt as to its success, as it was rare that such societies succeeded in Welsh town s. Het, it was a glad sight to see members of all denominations, members of all extremes of party -local and political-being-able to meet in friendly Association on a common ground.

North and South Wales Bank. The sixty-fifth annual meeting of the proprietors of the North and South Wales Bank was held in Liverpool on Tuesday, under the presidency of Mr Thomas Brocklebank, J.P,, chairman of the Board of Directors. The Chairman, moving the adoption of the re- port and the balance sheet (which appears in an- other part of the paper), said hi last year's fore- cast of continued satisfactory profit earning bad been amply fulfilled. The bank bad had a very satisfactory year and the profits compared very favourably with those of late years; and with the success that had attended those efforts, the resources of the bank bad been so distributed as to maintain the sti-i. financial position at which it was always the j desire of the directors to aim. Against the bank's total liabilities to the public, which were iZ9,932,291,, the bank held in cash, consols, India stock, first class railway securities, and bills, iE6,143,393, osa relation of one to the other of sixty two per cent (hear, heair). Every item in the balance sheet, with one exception, both on the debtor and creditor side of the account, showed an increase of which the proprietors would notice a growth of half-a-million or more in the deposits. As the bank continued to grow, the directors were naturally obliged to increase the number and im- prove the condition of the branches. The rebuild- ing of the premises at Holyhead and Pwllheli bad been completed and the new building at Rhyl would, it was hoped be ready for the summer. Tne directors thought it right to continue the policy of writing down the premises account annually. They had therefore reduced it during the past year by E5,793, making the total so treated in eight years £ 38,000. The tro fore- going items and the sum of £2,000 placed to the pension fund made a total of nearly L18,000 written off profits last year, ae against £9,000 in the previous year, but still leaving a good margin to pay a slightly-increased dividend and te carry iorward substantially the same amount to the next account as before, The increased income-tax which the bank paid before declaring the dividend, absorbed this year nearly £1,400 of the profits and the total income-tax paid was a fraction over Is 6d per share.or three quarters per cent. A branch had been opened at Llandrindod and sub-branches at Coedpoeth and Rhos near Wrexham and it was also arranged to open one at Craven Arms, where many of the bank's customers attended the great sales of horses and cattle. Premises had been bought at Smithdown-road and Shrewsbury, where branches would be opened during the spring. The directors were fortunate in securing at Shrewsbury a fine building in the very best situation, so the wish which the directors had long entertained of having a branch in what was aptly, termed the capital of North Wales was about to be realized. (applause). The staff now consisted of 437 officers who were zealous in the bank's service and anxious to promote its interests (applause). Mr J. Beausire seconded the adoption of the report and it was unanimously agreed to, as were other resolutions thanking the directors and managers and other officers of the bank.
