A Complaillt.-It would be a good thing if some ot the members of the Town Council were to came and take apartments for a time in Suiithfield so that they could ex- perience the Hunovance the residents, of that street and Greenfield have to endure on market and fair days. It seems to be sheer folly for the Corporation to have gone to great expense in paving and imp- roving this road, if the people living here cannot make use of it when they want it most. On fair days, like last Monday, the road is quite dangerous and is absolutely impassable to women and children. More over, on such cays, the gates at the top of the road are locked for hours and the inhab- itants and their friends are refused a free access to their homes. This surely is intol- erable. and it is to be hoped we will not have to wait long for a remedy.—Sufferer. Penyparke Postal Service: Sir—Aberyst- wyth s indebted to you for a very marked improvement in its postal service. We, however, in this growing part of the Bor- ough have to endure great disadvantages in this respect and are anxious to get a slight reform without delay. We think that it is due to us that we should have a delivery of letters in the afternoon or evening. We could give. if needed, any number of in- stances of great inconveniences suffered by the inhabitants of Penparke through having only one delivery. Having been told that the present pofctmaster is an adept organizer, it is to be hoped that, with his assistance, the next effort will prove more successful than the past ones.—Pro Bono Publico.
