LLANON. COFIRMATIO.-The Rt. Rev John Owen, D.D., Lord Bishop of St. David's, willri-,it Llansantffread Parish Church to-day (Thursday). The number of candidates for confirmation from this parish is 35. NEW, YET OLD.—The redoubtatlje Anne Jones," well known to magistrates and warders, was again removed on Saturday night to the Aberayron lock- up by P.C. Thomas for misconduct generally. PUPIL TEACHERS' EXAMINATION* —Among those ■qualified for entrance into the training colleges as normal students we notice the names of Miss E. Morris and Miss C. Evans in the second class, and Mr J. T. Morgan and Miss B. F. Davies in the third class First classes are conspicuous by their absence, though Miss E. Morris occupied a high position in the second class. MARITIME.—It was with pleasure that we became acquainted with the fact that Mr Alban Griffiths of this place has been successful at the recent examination held at London, and is now qualified to act as a certificated master. DEATH.—On Saturday last the death took place of Mrs Jane Evans, Tygwyn, at an advanced age. She had been supported for many years by the Union and had been bed-ridden for some time. She was of a quiet disposition and was much res- pected in the neighbourhood. QUEER YERY I-We were surprised to see a two- wheeled trap stranded;on the beach the other day. Conjectures aa to its ownership were abundant. The eyes of one old woman assumed a huge cir- cumference when she pondered over the thought of its being a ghostly visitant, but we are glad"to ik say that the fears of all were allayed and their doubts assuaged when the Police Constable with two young men from Aberayron marched down to the shore to claim it. On the score of precedence P.C. Thomas was of opinion that human agency had been at work. 11 REHEARSAL. A successful rehearsal of lv..

-=-=- ABERAYRON. SPECIAL SEssiois.-Mpnday, before CouapiVlor J. T. Evans, the notorious Anne of Llanon was again brought up in custody by P.C. Thomas, charged with obstructing the free passage of tbe public on the highway at Llanon and with creating a disturbance on the same night. Prisoner who was only just released from a month's imprisonment was again sentenced to 14 days. MARITIME.—The harbour presented a busy ap- appearance on Monday. The steamers Telephone and Delgoyn, with the ketches Cadwgan, Jane, Martha Janeand Cambria were being discharged the same day. It was like a glimpse into the prosperous past. THE ELECTIOXo-A cm respondent says:—The most surprising feature of the result of the Urban Council election was the position Mr E. Hughes Davies, Llanon House. Everybody was fairly con- fident that Mr Davies would secure a seat somewhere among the eleven. But to be only three votes behind the top of the poll was far beyond everybody's expectations. COUNTY SCHOOL.—A correspondent writes:— The football team of the Aberystwyth County School on Saturday last journeyed to Aberayron to play the County School. To the visitors' astonish- ment, however, they found themselves confronted by a team which was a mixture of town men and school boys, in the ratio of 6 to 5. This does not speak well for the honour of the Football Com- mittee of the Aberayron School. The ball was also a very poor concern, as all 3s 6d ones are. It was of the same shape as the earth, if our old school- master was correct in his notion that the earth's shape was like that of an orange when squeezed at both ends. As yet only two grievances have been mentioned. Shall another be stated? If so, it is this. A school team, when it journeys away to play another school team, is entertained to tea when the game is over. What happened at Aber- ayron? Well guess, as the little boy said. Capt. Jonathan Davies having won the toss, selected to play with the wind at his back. Until half-time the game was of a tame nature, neither side scoring. After half-time, however. Aberayron pressed occasionally and succeeded in scoring thrice. They were also awarded a penalty kick, but their attempt to convert proved futile. Thus the game ended with the result: Aberayron, 3; Aberystwyth, 0. Mr Dewhurst, science master, Aberayron. acted as referee. THE ELECTIONS—SECTARIANISM RAMPANT — The one all-absorbing topic at Aberayron during the week has been the elections of the Urban District Council and of the lady Guardians for the town. It was rightly anticipated that both elec- tions would be keen. and the subsequent voting proved this to be corrdjl, as the candidates ran each other very closely. Unfortunately, both the elections were fought on a sectarian basis. This feeling of sectarianism, so widely pr&valent in Wales, especially in our small communities, had lain latent for some time in Aberayron but suscep- tible to the least encouragement it. came out in full force in the County Council election of a few weeks ago. This narrow intolerant spirit, this distrust or hatred of those who do not conform to our way of thinking in trivial nonentities and inane conventionalities, is the bugbear of Wales and Welsh people. It is to be greatly deplored that it is so prominent a factc* in local government elections, where the electing of the best and fittest should always be the aim of every true citizen. In Aberayron the line of demarcation between sect and sect, between one denomination and the other, became very marked the last few days. The Inde- pendents and the Methodists, being the two most numerous parties in town, are the great rivals, while the Church party, generally keeping aloof, holds the balance of rower. Numerically, the Independents are some 20 odd votes stronger than their Methodist brethren, while the Church voters muster 60 or so. The last Council consisted of 5 Independents, 4 Methodists, 1 Church, and 1 Baptist. In the election just passed the Church party, evidently desirous of having more than one representative on the Council, joined hands with the Methodist, party. Joint meetings of these parties were held, at which it was resolved that the Church and Methodist voters be instructed and advised to vote for the four Methodist eandidates and four of the Church candidates. The Indepen- dents, on the other hand, had held no meeting to decide whom to support, and had prepared no plan of carrpaign, albeit they had no less than nine candidates in the field. The compact between Church and Methodist parties held force in the contest for the two seats for the Guardians, their candidates issuing a joint address. The interest taken in the elections was thus very marked, and reached a climax on Saturday night. The polling was a heavy one in each election. The result of the Guardians' election was declared about 9-30 p.m. at the door of the Assembly Rooms by Mr B. C. Jones, returning officer, and was as follows Mrs Mary Griffiths (Ch), 159; Mrs Bennet Jones (C.M,), 146; *Mrs Magdalen Rees (Ind.), 136. The first two were declared elected. Mrs Rees bad been Guardian for six years. The result of the Urban Council election was not declared until mid. night. A good-sized crowd had gathered at the front of the Town Hall. The result of the polling was as follows:- *Mr J. R. Evans (C.M.), 158 Mr E. Hughes Davies (Ch), 155; *Hev Evan Morris (C.M.), 149; Mr William Williams (C.M.), 147; Mr James Davies (Ch), 143: Mr Morgan Davies (C.M.), 142; *Mr J. T. Evans (Ind.), 139; Mr Evan Lloyd (Ch), 139; Mr David A. Davies (Ind.), 131; Mr Timothv Evans (Ind ), 129; *Mr Evan Lewis rind.), 126; *Mr David rGriffiths (Ind.). 123; Mr Daniel Williams (Ind.). 119; *Mr John Rees (Ind.) 110; Mr Tom Chas. Davies (Ch), 97; Mr Evan Edward Jones (Ind.), 42; Mr W. L. Thomas (Ind), 39 Mr John Jones, auctioneer (Ch), 36; Mr Thos. Davies, Royal Oak (Ch), 20. The first eleven were declared elected, '1 bose marked with an asterisk were members of the last Council.

The Chairman read a letter from the Home Office, White Hall, London, acknowledging the vote of condolence passed with the Royal Family, and con- grit-nlating the King on his accession to the Throne. VISITOR'S BOOK. The Master submitted the Visitor's Book which showed that an entry had been made by Mr Bircham, Local Government Board Inspector, staling that he had found everything clean and tidy, ;the dinner plentiful and well cooked. He suggested that the master should get assistance to do his books from the clerk's office, or he might see the Tregaron master. He also trusted that weekly religious services will be held at the House. MASTER'S REPORT. The Master reported that he wished to thank the Guardians on behalf of himself and his wife for their kindness in appointing them master and mat ron of the House, and they promised to do all in ¡'r:ir power to give every satisfaction in the niri'.uigement of the same. Mr Bircham, Local Government Hoard Inspector, paid a surprise vis-it to :1e House and made an entry in the visitors' book On the 11th inst George McGregor, from the of discharged from the House ahh> to resume his former employment. The report was then approved of. APPOINTMENT OF CLERK. The Chairman read a letter which he had received from :\[1' Daniel Watkins, solicitor, applying for the of clerk to the Guardians and Rural District and offering to do the duties for P-O iii- diig expenses. •Mr J. C. Harford said it had got that the "'•"•ard of Guardians :;¡ 1 been bribed. Mr Llovd had. made an offer that if his s ai were appointed ••*»'k he (Mr Lloyd) would forego his pension. lie would now put that question to Mr Llovd. Mr David Lloyd replied :hat on payment of E20 rannuation he would relinquish his hold on the oj condition that his son would be ap- pointed. J. C. Harford said it had got. about that Mr was to forego his pension if his son were appointed. As regards Mr David Lloyd, he was it;y entitled, to the pension and lie did not see .).y the Guardians <1:(\ fmy rights to deprive him )f his pension. It was believed throughout the socmtry that the Board Bad been subject to bribery. (Cries of no, no.) He (Mr Lloyd) had a right to expect his son to be appointed. If this was not true he hoped some of the Guaidians would get up to day and state that it was not true. Mr Lloyd, the late clerk, bad held the office for 47 years. A.re you going to make ancther clerk for another 17 years in ten minutes time? If you will he sme rou appoint the right man for iI, i- will be a life tenancy. Mr Harford continuing ei, (-(i a case in Glamorganshire where there was a g> eat diffi. ul :y with the clerk, and every one of the members wanted to get rid of him. They ultimately got rid )f him and entered into an arranges, >-nt with their next clerk for a yearly appoint mere. Now whether you fix the advertisement on the post of the Work- house or in the papers he did not care, but without saying a word against Mr Ernest Lloyd, let all apply, and let the appointment be made year by year the same as with other officers for in that manner the Guardians would get more work out of the clerk appointed. Whoever you will appoint, appoint one at a fair and just salary. Mr D. Lloyd was entitled to a pension. Well then, let him have it let us have everything done justly and honour- ably. As regards Mr Ernest Lloyd he had known him for years, and he had not a single word to say againsthim. He was a just, upright, and a straight- forward person, and he had never heard anyone saying a word against him. Let him stand on his merits, for, no doubt, he would be appointed. He further urged upon the Guardians not to hold secret meetings, but to let things be made public, and kept above btard, so that the Lampeter Board of Guardians might stand high in the estimation of the public generally (hear, hear.) The Rev T. C. Edmunds said he was afraid that there had been a little misunderstanding on the Board of Guardians lately. Mr Lloyd thought that that as he was giving up his pension of iE80 a year his son would be appointed in his stead. He did not think that the Board exactly meant bribery. The Chairman said that Mr Lloyd resigned un- conditionally, He did say of course that if his son would be appointed he would forego his pension. Mr Lewis Davies said that there was no bribery at all, Mr Lloyd resigned unconditionally. Tne Rev T. C. Edmunds said he was strcngly in favour of what Mr Harford had suggested, that was to advertise, and allow Mr Lloyd his pension. What- ever a man was entitled to let him have it. Mr Harford said he bad beard that Mr Lloyd would tee repaid what he had contributed towards the Superannuation fund. Mr Lloyd Yes, that can be refunded for it is stated clearly in the Act. The Chairman Is it legal to accept the pension in exchange for the appointment of the son, Mr Lloyd Yes, with the consent of the Local Government Board. The Chairman asked what about appointing yearly; was it legal ? Mr Harford Yes, I think so. In reply to a question, the Clerk said his salary as clerk to the Guardians was E50. Additional work had lately been added, so he considered the salary to be very low. Mr Harford said that there had lately been great trouble, owin- to the clerk acting as solicitor to the Guardians. The Guardians should make an agree- ment with their clerk that he should not act as solicitor without their consent. The Clerk said that he did not get any extra excepting in litigation such as appeals to Quarter Sessions &c., and again at that time the clerk had very often to appoint a solicitor, but in many cases when solicitors do not quite so well understand the Guardians work it would be advisable as far as possible to put the matter in the clerk's own hands. Mr Harford said that whatever the Guardians would do, let them do it rightly and justly. He would suggest that the clerk should be appointed every year, and then they wodd get more work out of the clerk, whoever would be appointed. Mr Lewis Davies said he did not think they could appoint every year. Mr Harford said that they could easily find that out by writing to the Local Goverment Board on the question. The Chairman What about the pension? Mr Harford: Whatever a man is entitled to, let him have it. He did not know what Mr Lloyd had done or not done. It he has given up his pension voluntarily, that's another matter. Mr James Jones Where does the pension come from ? Mr Lloyd From the Common Fund of the Union. The two Counties pay the salaries of the officers. In reply to the chairman, Mr Lloyd said that he received as clerk to the Guardians P.50, Assessment Committee £12, School Attendance Committee C5, as Superintendent Registrar P,33, and from minor offices such as Election of Guardians, &c., 920, from Lampeter District Council Z13 10s, Llanybyth- er District Council £10, making in all a total of L120. Mr Harford moved that a small committee, con- sisting of the chairman and one or two other members, be appointed to draw out an agreement, and that the same be posted up on the Workhouse gates in order that the applicants may see what was required by the Guardians. Mr Samuel Davies seconded. Mr Lewis Davies moved that they appoint Mr Ernest Lloyd as their clerk. The Rev T. C. Edmunds said that before they proceed to appoint they should advertise in the papers. Mr David Evans said the question of advertising in the papers had been before them at the last meeting, and it was lost. The Clerk pointed out that if they did not do something that day they woutd be without a clerk after Monday next. Mr John Davies (Lampeter) said that they at the lower end 01 the table wanted to get the matter plainly understood, and if Mr Ernest Lloyd would have to get the position by election would the generous offer of the late clerk stand good ? The Rev T. C. Edmunds said that whatever a man was entitted to, let him have it. Would you refuse a like offer if you bad the chance ? Mr Davies No, certainly; but Mr Lloyd's offer is good enough, and it would mean a lot for the ratepayers' benefit. Rev T. C. Edmunds (excitedly): Certainly. I know the Union as well as you do. Mr Davies; Very possibly you do. Mr B. J. Evars asked whether they could appoint a clerk yearly. They should take patience over the matter, as it was not a matter to be hurried with. He suggested that a small committee be appointed to look into the matter. Mr Lewi Davies said he hoped the appointment would not be made annually, or else they would have a row every year. He did not see why they should not appoint a clerk that day. There was no objection to Mr Ernest Lloyd, and be had every confidence in him Mr James Jones said be thought that this matter had ended. Mr Harford had not been with them for two or three years, and he could not possibly know so much about the matter as some of the other members knew. Mr William Jones said they as Guardians were not true to their words at all. Mr David Evans said that if they would lose that LBO it would mean a lot to them. He should only be too pleased to see Mr Ernest Lloyd called in to see on what terms he would act as clerk. Mr David Lloyd said that he need not say a word more than what he had said at the last meeting He himself bad done what was right and honour. able on his own part. Mr D. Evans: With regard to the salaries where do they come from ? The Clerk said they received from the two coun- ties Z368 towards the salaries. The Rev R. C. Jones seconded Mr David Evam proposition that Mr Ernest Lloyd be called in to give his views on the matter. It was ultimately resolved that Mr Ernest Lloyd should appear before the Board. Mr Ernest Lloyd then appeared and Mr David Evans asked on what terms would he act as their clerk,excluding both district councils, as that bad nothing to do with the Guardians that day. Then there would only be the work of the Assessment Committee, School Attendance and the Guardians At present the salaries amounted to £67. Mr Ernest Lloyd said he would let that matter rest, with the meeting, but be believed himself that the salary was a very moderate one. Mr Harford 1-aid t hat if an agreement were drawn between a small committee and the clerk it would be just and fair, and it would save a great deal of trouble to them and the clerk in the future. Mr Ernest Lloyd said that he had thought of that himself. It would be of great advantage to all. Mr Lewis Davies stated that he and Mr David Lloyd were the two oldest members on the Board and it gave him great pleasure in proposing that Mr Ernest Lloyd I)t- appoitite(i their Clerk. The Rev. R. C. Jones said it gave him the greatest pleasure to second the proposition. It would not be honourable on their part if they did not make the appointment that day. In reply to Mr B. J. Evans, Mr Ernest Lloyd said he would be quite willing to be re-appointed. annually if the Local Government Board allowed i t. Mrl; T. Evans said that what Mr Lloyd had suggested was quite proper. 1! v T. C. Edmunds said that Mr Daniel Watkins, solicitor, had offered to do] the work for £20, and lie proposed Mr Watkins. No one seconded. Mr J. Ernest Lloyd was then unanimously ap- nn;lited Clerk. The Chairman and Mr J. C. Harford were, on the motion of the Rev T. C.

MEDICAL, O-FFICKRS' REPORT. Dr E. C. Thomas reported a case of typhoid fever in a boy ten years of age at Bwlchyronen. It was difficult to ascertain the direct cause of the disease hot the imperfect drainage and watersupply of the village combined with the mode in which excreta were allowed to accumulate in the small gaidens attached to most, of the cottages in the place, must be conducive to the propagation of typhoid. The usual precautions were taken to check the extension of the disease. LAMPETER RURAL DISTRICT COUNCIL.

YSBYTTY YSTWYTH. BOARD SCHOOL.—The report of H.M. Inspectors upon this school has been received, and it is most gratifying to all concerned. The report reads as follows :—" The instruction is very carefully and intelligently given, and the condition of the school, both as regards order and efficiency, con- tinues to be very creditable to the headmaster and his staff. Desks should be provided for the infants as soon as possible." This is the seventh time in succession that the highest possible grants have been earned by this school, a fact which speaks volumes for the efficiency of the staff and the diligence of the pupils.
BLAENAFON. LECTURE.—The above chapel was crowded to its utmost capacity on Wednesday evenitq, March 20th, when an interesting lecture was delivered by the Rev Dr ReeF, Bronant, on Hen bregethwyr, a Itawer o'u dywediadau parod." The chair was taken by Mr Daniel Lewis Jones, Esgairhendy. After a sflTtable address by the chairman and other addresses in verse bv two young men, the Dr was called to deliver his lecture, which he did in his usual style, brimming with good humour and wits. Several tunes were sung at intervals. At the close of the meeting the Dr presented the Sunday School with seventy-five Bibles and Testaments which he bad received from the British and Foreign Bible Society in London. The proceeds of the lecture, which were about Z17 are to be applied to the bearing of the debt incurred in renovating the chapel and erecting a new chapel house, &c. It is worth mentioning that the whole debt, about £300, will shortly be cleared off by one stroke of the pen) io t) speak.
LLANGWYRYFON. ELECTION OF GUARDIAN. -Probably no election in the whole of North Cardiganshire attracted so much attention as the contest in this parish between Mr Daniel Jones, Hafodlas, and Mr E. J. Evans, Cnwcybarcut, the oLd member, At the very outset Mr Daniel Jones was much admired for his pluck in coming out to try to unseat the old member; for Cnwcybarcut" was in the estimation of some people a name to be reckoned with although the general opinion was that he was vulnerable enough if anyone made but a bold attempt to challenge him. Mr Evans failed to win the approval of the local committee; and by losing its support he lost much. Both candidates worked hard and left not a stone unturned. feelings at times ran high and the excitement was great; but it was successsully suppressed now and again; but all keen observers knew that a bitter fight for supremacy in local estimation was being fought. The eve of the election arrived and both candidates were not wanting in partisans and advocates and the merits of the new and the faults of the old were freely discussed and their chances on the morrow finely weighed. Who will be in ? That was the question; but when Saturday came, tue verdict at the poll was decisive namely, 63 for Mr Daniel Jones and 47 for Mr E. J. Evans. When the result was made known a wag declared that the old member would receive much benefit by being turned out to grass for a time*
PENUWCH. MONTHLY MEETING TEMPERANCE ASSOCIATION. —A meeting of this society was held in connection with the M.C. Chapel in the Vestry Room on Mon- day last. The delegates appointed by the South Cardiganshire Monthly Meet ing, Rev. M. Evans, and Mr Hugh Jones attended for the purpose of exhort- ing the members to more work Officers of the Association for the ensuing year were appointed. Chairman, Mr Daniel Thomas; secretary, Mr David Thomas treasurer, Mr Philip Green. The meeting- was well attended by the people of the neighbour^ hood. However, we are afraid that th ir plans are not such as are likely to get hold of the intemperate. Enthusiasm is worse than useless unless followed by work.
OLD FALSE TEETH BOUGHT"* Many ladies and gentlemen have by them old or disused false teeth, which might as well be turned into money. Messrs. R. D. & J. B. Fraser, of Princes Street, Ipswich (established since 1833), buy old, false teeth. If you send your teeth to them they will remit you by return post the utmost value; or, if preferred, they will make you the best offer, and hold the teeth over for yonr reply. If reference necessary, apply to Messrs. Bacon &. Co., Bankers Ipswich. Victoline is strongly recommended as an effective repjedy for tootiniche, neuralgia, and headache
