Cardiganshire Standing Joint…




PONTRIIYFENDIGAID. PARISH COUNCIT,The annual meeting of the Parish CouNcil for Gwnnws Upper was held at the Board school on Saturday, April 20th. Out of the nine members who form the Council only three appeared along with Mr J. Rees, deputy clerk. The fine weather and busy time probably accounted for the absence of some, while others require a re- gular whipping up or they fail to appear at their post. The members present were Messrs Jno. Jones, Dolfawr David Jenkins, Black Lion and Thos. Evans, Chapel House. After signing the statutory declaration Mr John Jones was electe4 chairman, pro tem. The Chairman proposed Mr Edward Evans, Great Darkgate-street, Aberyst- Z, wytb. as chairman of the Parish Council. Mr Evans, he said. took a great interest in Bont affairs and the least they could do was to re-elect him as their chairman again this year. Mr David Jenkins seconded, and it was cariied unanimously. Mr D. Jenkins then proposed Mr John Jones, Dolfawr, as vice-chairman, noting that he was well posted up in local matters, and a regular attendant at the meet- ings. Mr Thos. Evans seconded, and it was carried unanimously. Mr David Jenkins was then elected chairman of parish meetings, and Messrs Moses Thomas, Llwynmwyn, and Thos. Lloyd, Calmadog, were appointed overseers. The Clerk presented a statement of accounts, which were audited and signed, A precept of zel was made out to meet current expenses. SUNDAY.—Quite a gloom was cast over the vil- lage on Sunday last at the unexpected news of the decease of Mrs John Jones, Bridgend shop. She had been ailing for soma time, but reports were current that a favourable change towards recovery had occurred. It was therefore a shock to those attending at. the different chapels on Sunday morn- ing to hear that Mrs Jones had peacefully passed away while they were in chapel. Mr John Jones and Miss Margaret Jones had left the house to at- tend the service at the C.M. Chapel, little thinking that poor Mrs Jones when tlwy: left, and that be- fore they would return she would have crossed j, the bar. Much symyathy is felt for the whole family, and the remains will be interred at the Abbey Churchyard on Friday next at 2 p.m.—Also when the congregations parted from Sunday school meetings on the same day, it was learnt that the infantchild of David and Sarah Rees, Maesnewydd, Bont, had passed away. The child was a year old, and succumbed to an attack of bronchial pneu- monia. This occurrence also drew forth heartfelt sympathy and the Rev John Bowen made touching and appropriate references to the double visit of the Reaper called Death, with his sickle keen," to quiet. Bont on the same Sunday, cutting away both old and young alike.
