Pughe has had on view in her studio at Aberystwyth her latest painting, destined for this year's Royal Academy, which, last year as in previ- ous ones accepted and hung a contribution from her easel. The water colour drawing, 30 in by 20 in, is a portrait of :Miss Wenona Pugl-e, one of the nmrsing sisters in the Welsh Military Hospital in South Africa, who was invalided home a short time since, and is now at the Military Hospital, Cork. She is seated, clothed in her distinctive dress, in one of the wards, pathetically examining a cavalry sword in its scabbard which has been entrusted to her care by its slain owner for safe transmission to his home in England. A terrier with knowing look sits at her feet, attentively watching her face. Both as a portrait and as an incident the drawing in its subdued colours is one which commands attention, and adds yet another to the many high class pictures which are associated with the name of Miss B. A. Pughe, an artiste long connected by family and reidential connections with Aberystwyth and Aberdovey. OLD ABERYSTWYTH.—Subscribers in different parts of Great Britain are now beginning to send in various notes of interest on the first two parts of Aberystwyth: Its Court Leet," already issued. Mr Arthur A. Rollison, Dudley, an active member of the Harleian, British Record and Parish Register Societies, and author of the recently published Non Parochial Registers of Dudley," writes:— "As the records proceed they get very interesting and entertaining. The plates are admirable. The following facts may lead you to the conclusion why the Warneford family were visiting Gogerddan. Lewis Pryse of Gogerddan, Esq, by his wife Mar- garet, daughter of Edward Ryves of Woodstcck, bad two children, the son Lewis and unmarried in 1776, the daughter Mayare married Edward Loveden—Loveden of Buscot, Co Berks, by whom there were three children, (1) Pryse Loveden, who on the death of old Lewis Pryse, inherited Goger- ddan, and Buscot. His mother predeceased her father and assumed the name of Pryse in lieu of Loveden; (2) Margaret, who married Samuel Warneford; (3) Jane. Francis Warneford of Warneford Place, Wilts, D.C.L., matriculated at University College, 14 Dec. 1779, aged 18; B.A. A 1783, and was ultimately of Warneford Place. His l brother Samuel Wilson Warneford also matri- culated same day at same College, aged 16, B.A. 1783, M.A. 1786, B.C.L. 1790, and D.C.L 1810. He was known as The Philanthropist' He was rector of Lydiard Miliicent'1809, and of Bourton-on-the- Hill 1810-55; honorary canon of Gloucester 1844, until his death 11 Jan. 1855. It would be after they had taken their B.A. that they would doubt- less pay a visit to Gogerddan for a rest. The notes on the Bellmen are very interesting.
