ABERYSTWYTH SCHOOLMASTERS'. — b nder_ this title Mr David Samuel, M.A., headmaster of the County School, is contributing a series of illustrated articles to Cymru," edited by Mr O. M. Edwards. They are of real local value and tli i-ow much li-lit upon the lives of the early Aberystwyth educationists. COUNTY SCHOOL LIBRARY.-By means of the. large sum obtained last Christmas at the lecture, ireely given on its behalf by Philip Sidney, the library has now been fairly started, with an admirable selection of standard volumes, chosen by the upper forms with the assistance of the Stall. SUCCESS.—-Amongst the successful candidates in the Cambridge local examinations appear the names of G. Morris, Sbifnal; M. C. Waterhouse, Oldham; A. E. Clueley, Willenhall; and A.

DIRTY ROADS.—Complaints are rife and strong respecting the dirty state at Llanbadarn Road which has in some parts become almost, impassable to pedestrians. Also that part at Plascrug road which skirts tie Cemetery is in urgeut want of attention. Scores of people have to forego their accustomed walk over this read owing to the mud, which is as effective a barrier as the Pillars ot Hercules of old with their ne plus ultra. A DESERVING CASE.—We have been requested to call attention to a concert to be held at the Welsh Baptist's Schoolroom on Thursday. March 7th, in order to help to raise funds to enable a young girl of 18, who has recently become totally blind to avail herself of the advantages of a train- ing at a school for the blind, and thereby lessen, as far as human aid can, the terrible affliction which has befallen her. When we state that every effort, :first to repair, and latterly to restore vision has been made, and that in indigent circumstances without avail, it need not be added that the case is deserving of generous support. DRAWING.—We note with pleasure that the Aberystwyth County School, through one of its scholars, Arthur Doughtorl Evans, son of Mr Williams, Rheidol Feundry, has contributed the first pen and ink sketch done locally, to the History of Aberystwyth." It represents the old town and house at the corner of Lewis-terrace and Chalybeate-street, where for 40 years or more, the late John Evans lived, whose Mathematical and Commercial School' held and that deservedly so high a place amongst educational establishments, in the first half of last century. The drawing, which shows the well remembered clock and sun- dial, is a valuable addition to the series ot plates now being issued, and closely links the County School with the earlier Academy. GARDENER'S SOCIAL.-It was a happy idea which prompted the active Paxton Society to hold a socal gathering at which members and their wives could meet, and make further acquaintance, the one with the other. The place chosen was the Buarth Hall, which, last Friday evening, was trans- formed into a large, well furnished drawing room, with tables loaded" ith Art and other finely illustrated books, reading lamps, and game*. Tea and refreshments were served at a buffet, and songs readings and music were given at intervals by the members. From beginning to end the evening was one of real pleasure and profit to all privileged to oe oresent; and the Society feels deeply indebted to the company of ladies who undertook the arrangements. PORTLAND-STREET JUVENILE BAND OF HOPE. —Though not heard of during the few wintry months tha.t have passed, it stilt holds weekly meetings. They have been favoured at several of .their meetings with the presence of Mrs Maynard from India, who has been entertaining the members and interesting them about the children of India, their manners, ways, mode of living, schools, teachers, aDd scholars. At one of these meetings several costumes were brought, and many of the children attired in them. Last Tuesday evening the children were given a little insight as to the mode of cooking, also some practical work was gone through, and before the close the children were quite elated with all they saw. Mrs Maynard's missionary work out in India is amongst children, so that she feels quite at home with the Band of Hope children.

All three pnpils have had very brilliant school careers, as is evinced by the various examinations which they have passed. HOCKEY.—On Saturday last, a'match was played, between the girls of the High School and the. County School, Aberystwyth, which, after a keenly contested game, resulted in a victory for the latter by one goal to nil. The girls of the County School showed themselves to be superior both in pace and combination, but lacked the steadiness and staying powers of their opponents, who pressed them very hard during the last ten minutes. In the play of the County School the excellent defence of Lilian Morgan, and the long and accurate passing of Katie I Griffiths. Mabel Pierce, and Nesta Morgan were the chief features. While Miss MarIes-Thomas by her fine goal-keeping and D. White, D. Lloyd Jones, J. White and W. Smitn, rendered invaluable services to the High School.

The audience, chiefly composed of children, was very orderly and seemed to take keen interest in ail the subjects exhibited. Two slides, illustrating the four masted ship Simla of Liverpool, in a storm on a voyage to Hong Kong, were exhibited.
