CENSUS.—The enumerators appointed to distri- bute and collect the census forms were busy at work during the past few days. The district com- prises 15 parishes. The district is divided into three sub-districts, the registrars being Messrs Peter Williams, Rees Rowlands, and the Rev T. R. Morgan, whilst Mr Jenkin Lloyd is the superintendent registrar. It is expected that the population of the lower disrrict will show a slight decrease, for Gorwydd Parish especially has a large number of inhabitants in the colliery district. At the upper districts such as Ysbytty Ystwyth and Pontrbyd- fcndigaid it is estimated that there will he a slight increase, for the mines in which about 200 o'r 300 persons are employed are now open. LITERARY AND DEBATING SOCIETY.—The closing meeting of this Society took the form of an enjoy- able conversazione on Wednesday, March 27th. The President, in an introductory speech, briefly reviewed the Session then drawing to an end. Referring first to the officers of the Society: lie warmly eulogised the Vice-President (Mr Thomas Evans, Albion House), who bad given much time and labour to the Society, and whose business ability had been of the highest value to the com- mittee. (Cheers.) He was not going to refer to each member of the committee in detail, but pre- ferred to say that they formed a staff with whom any man would be happy to work. He wished to say a word about the ladies of the committee. The usual case was, that the men did the work and the ladies took the credit; that was not so at Tregaron. The ladies richly deserved all the credit tin-v had got, and much more, for they were faithful and efficient workers. Passing on to the consideration of the work done, the President said that the papers on the whole had been excellent; and the average standard much higher than it would be fair to expect in a country place like Tregaron. There was evidently plenty of talent at the disposal of a society like theirs, and this talent must be care- fully organised and developed. With regard to attendance at the meetings of the Society, the President regretted that more members had not been regularly present. It was an encouragement to readers of papers and to the committee of such a society as that to which they belonged to know that a good audience was :a certainty. This must be looked after better at another time, it all cou- cerned were to p-et the ma"imnm b- nefit nnt nr tl", Society. In conclusion, Mr Waterhouse thanked all present for their courteoi-is deference to the chair on all occasions, and expressed the earnest hope that the Society would be promptly revived in the autumn. The programme for the evening was not strictly formal, but the following Ïtel." were #given :—Piano duett, Miss Foulkes and I<Ir Water- house, County School; soi g. Miss Lizzie Jones, Crown song, Mr O. D, Pees, County School; reci- Crown song, Mr O. D. Pees, County School; reci- tations, Messrs David Jones, Glanyrafon, Blaen- caron T. H. Davies, County School; and W. D. George, Emporium. Mr H. R. Roberts (Inland Revenue) took charge of the games, which were well devised and raucn enjoyed; a little dancing also took place. During the meeting 2 I' P» oberts proposed a vote of thanks to Mr Arch, for permis- sion to use the Town Hall during the tvinter. Mr D. Thomas, grocer, seconded, and the proposition was unanimously carried. Mr Thomas Evans. in a happy little speech, said* that tFfc Society's very warmest thanks were due, in the first place, to Mr Waterhouse, who, in spite of many disadvantages, had most faithfully given time, exceptional lalent, and culture, to the benefit of the Society. He was sure that all members felt grateful and proHd to* have had snch a president as Mr Waterhouse. (Cheers,) There were others the Vice-President desired to thank, namely, the Secretaries (Mi.->s Nancy Morgan and Mr O. D. Rees), and two mem- bers (Miss Foulkes, County School, and Mr H. R. Roberts), who, until comparatively recently, were strangers to Tregaron, and who were always ready to give their time and talents to the societv they bad joined. The actors and actresses who had taken part in Ici on Parle Francais," on St. David's Dav, and who had afforded such a thoroughly enjoyable and successful entertainment, deserved great praise I and. gratitude. Special thanks were due to 1,1 r H. I R. Roberts, who, on that occasion, gave voluntarily his most energetic help and advice and who acted as stage manager. In conclusion, Mr Evans said he wished to impress on all guilty members the words Mr Waterhouse bad said about irregularity of attendance at the meetings. Those who pre- sented themselves would never have causejto regret, and he hoped that those who did not would hasten to reform next season. A good supply of refresh- ments was provided, and the members and guests gathered together at the delightful conversazione reluctantly dispersed at eleveu o'clock, after sing- ing "God Save the King."

Owen Davies, Carnarvon, preached a special sermon at the Noddfa Baptist Chapel on Thursday evening last. There was a fair attendance. A BOON.—This week the work of removing the Gorsddu sewer is being proceeded with. The Cor- poration have engaged a number of extra labourers to carry out the scheme, which will soon be finished. During last summer this sewer was a source of much nuisance to the residents of Station-tevrace and passers by, the stench arising therefrom being unbearable. PRESENTATION.—Mr David Jones Davies, form- erly clerk in the employ of Mr Tom Lloyd, solicitor, was presented with a handsome Bible, hymn book, and a sum of money by the members of the Soar Band of Hope. Airs John Rees, Peterwell-terrace, made the presentation on Monday evening last. CLERICAL.—Mr Alfred Abel, youngest son of Mr William Abel, Ram, has been appointed to the curacy of Hawarden, of which the Hev Stephen Gladstone is the vicar. Mr Alfred Abel is now at St Michael's College, Aberdare, and will be ordained in June next, after which he will take up his new duties. ACCIDENT. — An accident which might have proved fatal befell a young man named David Evans, a weaver residing at Cincoed Hill, Llany- byther. On Saturday last he, in company with other fellows, was riding on the step of the guard's van of the down goods train, and between Lam- peter and Llanybyther stations they jumped off when the train was going at a fair rate. Evans fell headlong against a post, cutting his head severely. The unfortunate fellow is a native of Cellan and is well known in the district. OBITUARY.—The death took place on Wednesday last of Anne Jones youngest daughter of Mr John Jones, Hendryd Farm, at the age of nineteen years The deceased was taken suddenly ill at an auction a few days previous, since when she had suffered greatly. The funeral took place on Saturday last, the interment being made at Caeronen Chapel, Cellan. The Rev. It C. Jones, and the Rev. David Evnas, Cribyn, officiated. Much sympathy is felt with her father, brothers and sisters, in their sad bereavement. DEBATING SOCIETY.—At the fortnightly meeting of the Ram 1 I'terarv and Debating Society held on Tuesday eve; ing at the Coedmore School, an inter- esting debr ■ e took place on Pa un ai glan y mor ynte pen y mynydd svddfwyaf manteisiol er mwyn iechyd," (Whether seaside or mountain is the most advantageous to health.) Mr David Williams, Bryneiddig, advocated the former, whilst Mr Davies, schoolmaster, took up the cudgels for the latter. Dicussiem followed, in which a number of the members took part. It is satisfactory to note that this Society increases in its membership each season, a large number of persons from town have lately become members. THE CE-N;Sus.-On Fi-i(-Iay last, the enumerators were at work distributing the census forms, and again on Monday in collecting the same. The dis- trict of Lampeter comprises 15 parishes, for which 32 enumerators have been appointed. Mr David Lloyd, solicitor, is the superintendent registrar. The district is divicted into four sub-districts, viz., Lampeter, which includes the parishes of Lampeter Urban Lampeter Rural; Bettws Bledrws; Llangybi; Silian and Trefilan, and of which Mr E. D. Rees is registrar; Pencarreg. which includes Cellar), Llan- fairclydogau, Pencarreg and Llancrwvs, Mr David Parry being registrar Llanybyther, which includes Llanfihangel-rhosycorn, Llanllwni and Llanybyther, of which Mr David Evans, is registrar and Llan- wenog, which comprises Llanwenog and Llanwen parishes, Mr Titus Evans being registrar. The total population of the whole district in 1891 was 6,844, a total which is expected will be slightly in creased on the present occasion, owing to a very large number of houses having recently been built. On the whole, three out of four parishes will show a slight decrease, as for instance the parish of Llan. ybyther. Although a number of new houses have recently been built in this parish, yet owing to the large number of the i!ll),,ibitiits who have left for the South Wales districts during the past ten years, it will undoubtedly show a slight decrease. The population in 1891 was 1174. z;1 The population of Lampeter Urban in 1891 was 1569, but it is estimated about 1800 this year. The parish of Pen- carreg is also expected to show an increase, its populuation in 1891 being 1096.

INQUEST.—Mr John Rowlands, coroner, held an inquest at Heddgen, on Monday, into the death of a shepherd named Richards, of Heddgen. The first witness was Richard Evans, farmer, hengwm, who said that deceased was a shepherd and farmer living at Heddgen. The last time witness saw deceased was on Wednesday when he accompanied him home from Machynlleth. It was a cold night snowing and freezing hard. They were both on the best of terms and very friendly. Witness pro- mised to bring flour belonging to deceased to him on Thursday morning. When parting on the road it did not strike him that it was impossible for de- ceased to reach home that night. The distance from the place they parted to deceased's home was three miles, including a long strip along Rhiwfein- iog mountain. It was about 9.30 p.m.—Dr A. O. Davies said that he was called to see deceased on Thursday morning. He was lying on the bed. He had his eyes open and his body was quite stiff. Saw no marks of violence. His opinion was de- ceased died from exposure—David Richards (13), son of the deceased, stated that he found his father's wallet t on the ground on Thursday morn- ing. He told his mother, and they afterwards found his father a little lower down. Jane Richards, wife of deceased, said that the farm was situated about eight miles from Machynlleth. De- ceased had gone to Machynlleth for flour and other things for the house, and expected to return the same night. She found him on the mountain near Lluest Organ. He was lying on the road face downwards, resting on his hands. Deceased was taken home on a sledge drawn by a horse. He did not say anything. She gave him some warm tea and whiskey, and sent for Dr Davies. He had had no serious illness. He had resided at Hengwm for ten years and bad eight children.—A verdict was returned that deceased died from exposure. INQUEST.—An inqtiest was held before Mr John Rowlands, coroner, on the 27th March at Esgair- geiliog on the body of Winifred Anne Jones, Ochor, who died from the results of burns received.

She died at Atchor Cottage on the 26th March. About one o'clock witness had gone out to put some clothes on the line, leaving three children in the house, including the deceased, a-nd had closed the doer. She had been out for about five minutes when the little girl Winifred appeared at the door, her clothes in flames, screaming. Witness caught hold of her and tried to extinguish the flames. At this moment her sister and others came in. The child's face was greatly burnt, as was also the upper part of the chest. Witness could not state how it occurred, but the little boy said that they had been playing with matches. She afterwards saw a box of matches, which were all ignited; some were on the table and others on the floor. Oil was put on the burns. The child was a healthy one and did not complain much.-Dr W. 11. Williams, Machynlleth, stated that on Tuesday afternoon he was called to see the deceased. He examined her and found that she had been severely burnt, mostly about the face, also the neck, arms, and chest. He dressed the burns, and did everything necessary for her- com- fort. He was again called and reached the house at 11-30, and found the child dead. In his opinion death resulted from shock following extensive burns.—The Jury gave a verdict according to the doctor's evidence.
London Letter. London, Wednesday Afternoon. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] THE CHAMBERLAIN CASE. The most interesting event of the last week was the decision of the jury in the libel action brought by Mr. Arthur Chamberlain against the Morning Leader. It may safely be said that the sympathy of most people was on the side of Mr. Chamberlain, partly because the Morning Leader has been the most energetic opposer of the war policy, and partly also for the reason that a man attacked in a newspaper is always in a position which commands sympathy. Never- theless, though he had the aid of the greatest advocate at the Bar, and also of the greatest authority on the law of libel, the verdict has to all intents and purposes justified the action of the Editor of the Morning Leader. For what does it amount to ? Mr. Arthur Chamberlain complains that he has been cruelly libelled, that his character as a business man has been affected, and that as reparation for such a wroncf he must have substantial damages. The amount of the damages expected may be gauged from the fact that Sir JEdwardlOljrke's fee was said to have been £ 500, with a retainer of £50 a day. But the jury, after a long and patient hearing, decided that the: measure of the damages sufierea by Mr. Chamberlain was < £ 200, les," than is usually given to a success- ful plaintiff in a breach of promise case. The revelations made in the course of the trial as to the methods used by some large firms in securing contracts have been nothing less than disgraceful, and the few facts brought out were alone sufficient justification for the action of the Morning Leader. SIR EDWARD CLARKE. Mention of Sir Edward Clarke brings to one's recollection the remarkable change of front recently made by him. No man took a saner view of the initial ,stages of the war and of the abominable diplomacy which led up to it. For eighteen months Sir Edward Clarke has been out of politics, and it was generally supposed that hi-s opinions lemained unchanged. It may be that he is yearning for the floor of the House of Commons once more, a place where he has had many triumphs. At any rate he has chosen lather a strange move in the diplo- matic wheel as an excuse for returning to his party. According to him no sensible man can feel sympathy for the Boers who wilfully decide to continue the struggle rathyr than accept any terms jshort of inde- pendence. It will surprise rne if in another twenty or thirty years this very action øf the Boers is not looked upon by everybody as the acme of he; otsm. According to Sir Edward Clarke's logic, Washington was a fool, so was Garibaldi, so were Wallace and (Jlvndwr. It is a pity that a man like Sis Edward, who'is honoured by all who know him, shouid have given vent to so shallow an excuse for returning to fclife fold. Mr. Maclean, the late Conservative member for Cardiff, is meanwhile as unrepentant as ever, and is apparently astounded at tlig action of his I, co-partner on Tory Pro-Boerism. THE LIBERAL IMPERIALISTS. I Slowly but surely Liberal Imperialism is fading away. It has suffered an irreparable loss by the change in the proprietorship "of the -I)Ctily Aews, and if a certain rumour is correct it will receive another bad blow in a few days time. The position of men like Mr. Robson and Mr. Ure is absurd. They concur generally with the policv of Mr. Chamberlain, but carp at petty details. This is not opposition, it is the exact opposite for it, fortheone and only tendency of ,tielilltacties is to strengthen the Conservative side. The real work of opposition is done by Messrs. Lloyd George, Labouchere, and one or two others. There is no denying the fact that their clever and persistent opposition has weakened the position of the Government, and it should surprise no one to see it fall to pieces before long.
NOTICE TO CORRESPONDENTS. CORRESPONDENTS are requested to send news in as early as possible during the present week. P.S.D.A.Tlie publication of your letter, as received, would tend to lower your pro- fession in the estimation of the public. We thought it was the duty of the Press Secretaries of the S.W.D.U. to communi- cate with the papers with reference to any complaints Besides, if we are not greatly mistaken, a statement in your letter, if true, would incriminate a certain pupil referred to by you.
ABERYSTWYTH. j CLEANSINT;,—The recent heavy rains have been most beneficial in cleansing our streets, which once again present their usual bright and dry appearance. COUNTING HEADS.-On Moat-lay morning the collectors and enumerators were busily occupied in promptly calling for the census papers-the first return for the twentieth century. As a rule they had but little trouble, the well known blue form being ready on demand. COMPETITIVE MEETING.—On Wednesday even- ing, March 27th, a competitive meeting was held at Tabernacle Chapel under the auspices of the Literary Suciety. The chair was taken by the Rev T. Levi, and a pleasant evening was spent. 71 A CHOSEN SPOT.—The proverbial mildness of the Vale of Clarach is now in full evidence, where daffodils and oilier spring Sowers are now brightly waving in the spring breezes, and the rooks basily and noisily engaged in family matters in the .1 branches of the trees in the Churchyard. VISITaRS. Many county and other families have, as customary at this season of the year, taken up temporary residence on the Marine Terrace. After church parade on Sunday morning brought out numbers of promenaders, who thoroughly enjoyed the warmth and brilliant sun- shine. MONTHLY FAIR.—At the monthly fair held on Monday, there was a poor show of horses, but a large show of cattle, though only a few fat cattle were shown. Store cattle sold well from £10 to £13, and there was a great demand for cows with calves, which sold from iP,12 to £ 16. The show of horses was poor, and although there was a large number of dealers, little business was done. LATK AGAIN.-On Tuesday morning the mail train was more than-twohoursbehmdtimein its arrival at Aberystwyth Station, owing to a failure of the tablet at one of the stations on the line. The delivery of the letters was correspondingly late, and great inconvenience accrued to the town and district in consequence of such uncalled for and unexpected delay, for which the postal authorities are in no way responsible this time. EXIT OLD, ENTER NEW.-The march of our street improvements goes on steadily. Now (that the foot pavement is well laid all along the new row of houses in Railway-terrace, recently erected by Councillor Salmon, it is to be seen what a fine:strect this will shortly become; especially when it opens out to Pound-place and Northgate. In Great Darkgate-street, Mr T. J. Samuel, solicitar, is completely remodelling his chambers and business premises, and putting in a new frontage to his well known old premises. TEMPERANCE.—The Ystwyth Lodge of the Independent Order of Good Templars held its weekly meeting at the Progress Hall, Mill-street, on Friday evening last, when a number of candi- dates for membership were accepted. The chair was occupied by Mr Thomas Vaughan. The following is a copy of the programme rendered:— Mandoline solo, Miss M. Doughton recitation, Mr Thomas Jon-s; song, Mr E. H. Davies; chorus, the Choir; recitation, Mr R. Tibbott. Snort addresses were delivered by Messrs Richard Jones, D. O. Williams, David Evans, and David Thomas. COB SHow.-Tlie Aberystwyth and District Cob Improvement Society held its annual show on Monday last, and turned out a success in every way. There were thirteen entries for the prize of £25 offered for the best cob, which was taken by Messrs Hawkins and Jones, Builth, for their cob Evolution," the second prize being given to Mr Isaac Davies, last year's prize winner, for "Chocolate Bracey" The judges were Messrs Davies, Glanystwyth, and Thomas Jones, J.P., Brynmelyn, C orwen. The president of the society is Captain Welby Parry Price, Boncath, Tivyside. Mr Powell, Nanteos, and Mr Loveden Price, Aber- llolwyn, and other officials strenuously helped to make Monday's show a success, and their efforts were amply rewarded, for the attendance at the show was a record one. THE RADICAL CLUB.—The annual general meeting of the Club was held on Friday evening, under the presidency of Mr D. C. Roberts. In reviewing the work of the Club for the past year, the Chairman said it had been the most eventful in the annals Qf the Club. The increase in the membership had made the accommodation at the old building too scanty, and they had, therefore, found it necessary to occupy the much larger and more commodious premises in which they now found themselves. This showed that the Radical Club was an active and progressive institution, and the extensive patronage which they had received since their re- moval was ample testimony, if any were needed, that they had the sympathy of all classes in the social, intellectual, and political work which they had in hand. The prospects of the Club bad never -been brighter, for the membership had nearly doubled, and the attendance at the weekly meet- ings had increased in proportion. The reading room also was largely used, and he was sanguine that with the improved facilities which were now available they could count on the hearty support of all clashes of Liberals in the town, and invite them to join the institution. The election of officers for the ensuing year was then proceeded with, when the following were appointed :—President, Mr D. C. Roberts; honorary presidents, Mr Vaughan Davies, M.P., Alderman Peter Jones, Alderman W. H. Palmer, and Mr T. W Powell; vice-presidents, | Messrs T. B. Hall, T. H. Edwards, John Evans, and P. B. Loveclay; treasurer, Mr r W. Powell; ex- ecutive committee, Messrs T. J. Samuel, J P. Thomas. R. Peake, R. Ellis, J. Barson, L. Bearne, and Griffith El iizi; librarian, Mr Jenkin Humphreys; hon. sec., Mr James Rees. CHARGE OF THEFT. — On Thursday afternoon last, at the Police Station, Aberystwyth, before Messrs Thomas Griffiths, and Edward Evans, Mar- garet Thomas, joiner's wife, Pensarn terrace, Aberllefenay, was charged by Matilda Stevens, domestic servant, employed at Avondale House, Marine-terrace, with having stolen a postal order valued at 5s on March 6.—Mr W R. Jones, solicitor, appeared for the defence.—The complainant said on March 6th she enclosed a 5s postal order in a letter addressed to her mother at West Bromwich. The defendant was present when the order was placed in the letter and was entrusted to post it. From a communication she had since received, she had cause to suspect that the postal order did not reach Íl destination. She identified the writing on a postal order produced as her handwriting. '—Jessie M. Brown, a clerk in the employ of the of the Post Office authorities, said she remembered cashing the postal order produced and recognised the initials it contained as her writing. She could not swear that the defendant was the person who cashed it. The defendant pleaded guilty and elected to be tried summarily.— Mr W. R. Jones, addressing the Bench, said there were certain facts in connection with the case, which would extenuate the offence. The defendant was a married woman, aged 20, with three children. She had lived apart from her husband, who had led his wife a miserable life. He was fined at the Dolgelley Sessions some time ago, and had since disappeared. Since the previous Sep- tember she had not received a penny from her husband, and he contended that she got into temp-, tation and fell. He therefore asked the Bench to bind her over and deal with the case under the First Offenders' Act.-Tho Bench, after deliberat- ing in private for some time, dismissed the case with a caution. GOLF CLUB LECTURE.—On Thursday evening, March 28th, the Rev George Eyre Evans delivered a most lucid and interesting address to a very appreciative audience at the Old Assembly Rooms on Old Aberystwyth," in aid of the" funds of the Pendinas Golf Club. The chair was occupied by Mr J. D. Perrott, J.P. The I ee turer has.,pent'.t very -considerable time in hunting up the records of old Aberystwyth. and judging from the pile of docu- ments he had on the table in front of him, his labour of love has been regarded to a very lars-e S extent. He has found the documents of the Court Leet as far back as 1690; but, unfortunately, there are serious gaps in the series, and the lecturer's urgent appeal to his listeners for their help and encouragement to clear up the past will surely not be made in vain. The address was brim- ful or' interest from beginning to en 1, and the lecturer's sense of humour enables him to (irav a viery vivid and real picture of the social life and municipal condition of our town two oenturies ago. As one thinks of the subject, one can draw a clear picture of Alexander Gordon, of Job Sheldon, and of James Hughes—three of the great men who formed the Iiitory 'of Aberystwyth -and the manure heaps and the funny side of the various presentments" and the adjournments of the Court Leet to the Gogerddan Arms are sidelights on the development of our history, of which Mr Evans made capital use. He paid a high tribute to the memory of three local historians—the unknown author ,,f thi' "Guide to Aberystwyth," which! appeared in 1816, noted for its truly airnificent dedication to iiie Castle ruins; Coiinc-iiior T. O. j Morgan, the author of the Guide of 1845 and to Mr John Jones (Ivon), whom we all remember as the genial storyteller of local customs and char- acters, with his inexhaustible fund of humour and exquisite literary style. The points of i he address are too numerous to dwell upon, but we trust that the subject matter will appear at full length in the first-rate scholarly work which Mr Evans has set his hHnt upon—his own "History of Abervstwyth." of which four parte have already appeared. Other town in Wales—like Carclifi and Carnan-■ ,n-have published their Records, and there is every reason for the inhabitants of the town to be proud that at last a history of Aberystwyth is forthcoming which pro!Y,i,"h' to be a magnificent piece of work. As Principal Bebl>, of Lampeter, and Professor Edwards stated in the meeting in their support of the vote of thanks to the lecturer, tin: work is characterized by its singularly able and historical criticism, ajid by the pleasing literary style in which Mr Lvans Hothes his facts. We understand that t: e proceeds have materially benefited the II funds < f~!he Golf Club. ENTERTAINMENT. — The final entertainment in connection with the winter session of the College Literary and Debating Society was held on Tuesday evening, when an enjoyable programme of songs and humorous sketches was gone through.

Morgan, of the Emporium Pier-street and New-street, repect- fully invites the inspection of her large and choice assortment of the newest designs and novelties for the season.

DR LLOYD-SNAPE and Mrs Lloyd-Snape left Aberystwyth last week for Preston, where Dr Snape will take up the duties of director of educa- tion under the Lancashire County Council. Dr Lloyd-Snape occupied the chair of chemistry at the University College of Wales. Aberystwyth, for about fifteen years, and during his residence here he won a large number of friends and admirers. He always took an intelligent and active part in the affairs of the town, and was considered by one and all to be a good and sincere citizen, ever ready to lend a helping hand to deserving causes. Mrs Lloyd-Snape will also be sorely missed by the poor in many parts of the town on account of her quiet charity. At the last meeting of the Board of Guardians a vote of thanks was passed to Dr Lloyd- Snape and Mrs Lloyd-Snape for the generosity and deep interest they had shown to the inmates of the Workhouse, I PETTY SESSIONS.—The weekly Petty Sessions were held on Wednesday at the Town Hall, before the Mayor (Mr E.

Walcer Evans were appointed overseers for the ensuing twelve months. ADDRESS ON WORDSWORTH.—The County School Literary and Debating Society met last Friday evening, when a most interesting and valuable lecture on Wordsworth, as a Poet and Philo- sopher," was given by the Headmaster, Mr D. Samuel, M.A., who is well known to be a great Wordsworthian. Mr Samuel pointed out how Wordsworth'had been influenced by nature, and had composed many hundred lines of poetry in his study —the open air. When his housemaid was once asked by some visitors where his study was, she replied, Here is his library, but his study is in nature." After the profitable lecture was over, the chairman, D. Jonathan Jones, called upon R. J. Williams, to prop.e and upon S. O. Owens to second, a vote of thanks to Mr Samuel for his paper, which was heartily accorded. This is the last meeting of the Society for this term. We wish it cüntinued caooofci in tbcfrrtnre. The Lacturer gave an admirable account of the poetry of Wordsworth, rhe poet's diction, his love of solitude and of nature, his aim as a teacher and other matters worth knowing. Several pl-ssages were read to illustrate thp poet's mode of thinking and the lessons he meant to convey. An enjoyable evening was spent. Lectures of a similar character will, it is promised, be given in the course of next session, Trips to some neighbouring places of interest are spoken of for next term, and amongst other places of much archaeological interest, a visit to Strata Florida Abbey is in contemplation. The members of the society are very keen on this last-named outing. HOCKEY.—On Saturday last the Tregaron Countv School. played atffregaron their first hockey match, their opponents being the Aberystwyth County School. Although Tregaron lost by two goals to nil, their play was highly creditable and several of the team showed considerable promise. The heavy rain of the previous day had thoroughly soaked the ground, the state of which was not improved by the heavy showers that fell during the game, Tregaron won the toss and elected to play with the wind, but although the play was generally in their opponents' half, the sound defence of the Aberyst- wyth backs, and in particular of Lizzie Morris, prevented any score. When ends were changed, however, in spite of some fine runs down the left wing for Tregaron by L. Edwards, the Aberystwyth forwards, among whom K. Griffiths was conspicu- ous for capital play, pressed continually, gaining two goals and being conceded several corners. As a novel and very pleasant finish to the game, the Tregaron team entertained their visitors at the school to a tea which they had themselves prepared in the cookery department Teams :—Tregaron, goal, M. Daniel; backs, Mary Dudlyke," Masjgie Davies (captain) half-backs, Lizzie Jones, Mima Lloyd, Elsie Davies; forwards, Lena Edwards, Olive Morgan, Edie Jones, Nellie Lloyd, L M. Davies.

FREE CHURCH COUNCIL.—A meeting of the newly formed Free Church Council was held on Tuesday evening at Baker-street Congregational Schoolroom, the Rev Thomas Levi presiding. The first business was to receive the names of the representatives appointed by the different churches which showed that almost all the churches were represented. Mr T. H. Edwards enquired whether any communication had been received from the Welsh BaDtists. The Rev T. Williams (sec. pro. tem.) replied in the negative, and said he under- stood that church was not going to join at present. The appointment of president was next proceeded with, and the Rev Job Miles proposed the Rev T. Levi to the position. Mr Levi, be said, was fully entitled to the position on account of age and his valuable services in the cause of religion. Mr Owen Owen seconded, and the proposition was carried unanimously.—Various suggestions were made as to the appointment of vice-presidents, and :t was decided that only one be appointed the person thus appointed being the Rev Job Miles. It was also agreed that the president and vice- president be elected annually.—The Rev T. Williams and Mr Robert Northey were unanimously ap- pointed joint secretaries, and Mr T. W.

No information has been gleaned as to when the mines are likely to be restarted, the only men employed thereat now being a few who are engaged in keeping the place in working order. VOLUNTEER ARTILLERY FOR ABER- YSTWYTH. Colonel Walford, Royal Artillery Headquarters, Devonport, has forwarded to the Aberystwyth Volunteer Committee, of which Mr. A. J. Hughes (town clerk) is hon. secretary, copy of a War Office letter intimating that the Right Hon. Mr. S.

About three weeks ago certain dogs were dis- covered worrying sheep on Penglaise Farm in the early hours of the morning. When Mr Rees went to the fields about half past six in the morning he found several of his sheep lying dead on the ground and, upon advancing, saw two dogs worrying the others. He gave chase and traced the dogs to their homes. It was found that six sheep had been killed on the spot; two were so terribly mangled that they had to be killed at once; and five others were so badly torn that they died shortly after. Eight|lambs were also killed. The owners of the dogs were two licensed victuallers of Aberystwyth, upon whom a claim for damages was made with the result that they decided to make good the loss rather than go to law.
