1 LIKE OLD TIMES. Military Camp at Welshpool. Welcome to Liverpool's Telegraph 'Terriers.' "It reminds me-of old times to have the military amongst us again, especially at Oldford." Thus spoke a veteran councillor last. Thursday, when the Corporation of the an- j cient and military borough of Pool passed a unanimous resolution to welcome the Liverpool Telegraph Terriers." And yes- terday (Sunday) the townsfolk turned out in crowds from chapel and church and no- where to endorse this official welcome. "Who'd have thought there were so many people in Welshpool!" was one comment, inspired by a sig.ht of the multitude, which spread itself from Station-square, along Severn-road, Severn-street, and Berriew- street, towards the encampment. The babe in the arms of mother or father, the little slum-child with tattered .boots, the frock- coated, silk-hatted suburbanite—all classes were represented. And the numbers put even the Mayors Sunday into the shade. Within 200 yards of the town, the camp is situated off the Berriew-road, on the Oldford Portion of Powis Castle Park, to the east of the Red Castle, and overlooking a magnificent stretch of Severn valley and border-mountain scenery. This was the destination of two Western Telegraph Com- panies of the Royal Engineers (Territorial forces) army troops. The Wireless Telegra- phy Company went yesterday to Aldershot, where they will use the regulars' equipment. It is the Air Line" and the Cable Company that will do a fortnight's train- ing in the Paradise of Wales. These Engineers number 230 non-com- missioned officers and men, with seven commissioned officers. Punctually at a quarter past noon the first special train from Edge Hill arrived at Welshpool. The companies have their own band- whose smart-looking drum-major attracted much notice—but they were played from the rail- way station into camp by the band of the Montgomeryshire Yeomanry. The visitors had an excellent first impression of Powys- land hospitality from the welcoming crowds, which included not a few smiling maidens. Half an hour later the second train arrived punctually with 99 horses, eight aif-line waggons, one cable waggon, and the baggage. Lieut.-Colonel F. J. Pilcner, V.D., is ine commanding officer, with Captain R. M. Macrory as adjutant (Captain Macrory is a brother of Mrs ft. Wynne, Lower Garth). The other commissioned officers already in camp are Captains Newell, Robinson, and Whitney, wih Second-Lieutenants Leslie and Mockler. They have their qaurters near the deer park, at a considerable dis- tance from the men, and are also sheltered by a grove of trees,. but telephonic com- munication will be installed throughout the camp. The permanent staff consists of Sergt.-Major W. Glue; Sergts. W. Evans and R. J. Jackson (cable); and Sergts. Bridgeman and Woodhead (air-line). The companies' field work is interesting in character, but not so varied as it was before Mr Haldane's scheme, when they were fortress and bridge-building engineers The air-line and the cable companies work independently, but each can do the work of the other. The cable is worked out first from the base office. It can be laid out at an average speed of three miles per hour. The cable waggon, in addition to the tele- graphic instruments, carries four drums with two miles of wire on each. Mounted men- with a kind of crook-lay the cable to the best advantage for instance, over the con- venient branch of a tree, or along the ground, pegging it down at a bend. The air-line, which is semi-permanent, follows the cable. On these waggons are carried telegraph poles, 13 feet long and 2^ inches in diameter, which are driven into the. ground on the required route about every 80 paces-the same as the post office 'telegraph poles-but the distance may vary according to ttte nature of the ground. Two men work the drums-each of which carries a mile of wire—the one pulling' and the other guiding the. wire with a gloved hand. Then two "strainer" men have a belt around their bodies with a clip, which grips the wire they give it the proper ten- sion, and the wire is received by a slot in the insulator, and turned. Each waggon carries telegraphic instruments by which the clerks receive and dispatch messages as Tequired. Each detachment of the air-line men will wire about a mile of country per hour. During yesterday afternoon the military traffic from the railway station to Oldford proved a serious counter-attraction to the local Sunday Schools. For once in its his- "torv even the annual demonstration of the Anglican Sunday Schools had to take second place in the public eye, especially whilst the Liverpool horses were tackling the task of pulling the waggons up Oldford- 'lane. Last night the Engineers were settling down. They admired the Powysland scenery, they appreciated the town's wel- come. To many a Poolonian the Sabbath Day had been one giddy round of sight- seeing pleasure—" just like old times."

Headed by the Newtown Silver Band, and marshalled by members of the Committee and Women's Guild, the children assembled at Penygloddfa Council Schools and then paraded the principal streets of the town, which were thronged with hundreds of interested spectators. As the children proceeded down Broad-street, carrying flags, and the little girls dressed in different colour dresses, a very pretty scene was presented. Over 1,400 children partook of the excellent tea in the Public Hall, which was prepared under the capable manage- ment of the manager of the Stores (Mr F. C. Evans), and his staff, the lady members of the Society, presiding at the tables. The children, upon leaving the hall, were the recipients of a bar of chocolate.

One inmate had been buried the day before, and at the Board meeting Reliev- ing Officer James Fortune reported the death of three Welshpool men in the workhouse. They had been admitted to the House since the last Board.—The Chairman (Mr William Pritchard) Dear me THE PASSING OF CHARITY It's enough to make people Socialists Instead of blaming the Budget, one Conservative townsman passed this curious comment last Friday, when he heard that subscriptions to the Nursing Institute, the Dis- pensary, and the Church of England Clothing Club were to be greatly reduced. M USlCAL.-At an examination held at Oswestry this month in connection with the Incorporated Society of Musicians, Miss Ethel Elledge, Gungrog-road, Welshpool, and Miss Lilla Jones, Plas Madoc, Bishop's Castle, passed very success- fully in pianoforte playing and theory of music (Grade II), gaming high marks.

CONSCRIPTION AND RURAL DEPOPULATION.—A Bill to abolish voluntary military service and to substitute compulsion was voted upon by the House of Lords last Tuesday midnight, and was thrown out by 114 to 103 The Earl of Powis was one of those peers, who voted for conscription to defend their own country. The Earl of Crwe said that the Bill would bring in practically the whole of the rural population, )-)ut a smaller pro- portion of the urban population. From the point of view of those, who desired to see the younger generation of the rural population re- maining on the land and settling down, he did not think that this universal sweeping into the mili- tary net would do anything but operate somewhat ""T.n.l. 4-nn. auvoiBcijr \IV uuu ujjjn. COUNCILLORS AS,COMMITTEEMEN.—The printed municipal records for July give an interesting light on how the Borough Councillors attend to committee work. All four committees meet on the same day in the following order 1st Sanitary, Waters, Sewers, aud Fire Brigade, 10-30 a.m.; 2nd Paving, Lighting, and Highways, 12 noon; 3rd, Markets, Lands, and Building*, 12-30; 4th, Finance, Tolls, and Rent, 3-30 p.m. On the second Thurs- day of this month the 1st Committee was attended by 9 members out of 16, tho 2nd Committee by 7, the 3rd by 5, and the 4th by 4. The Mayor (Dr Thomas) with Councillors George Macqueen and Edwin Stockton. shared premier honours by at- I tending the whole series. But some members and officials would be better suited if the Com- mittee did not meet on the weekly half-holiday. DEATH OF AN OLD INHABITANT.—By the after- noon train from Portmadoc, the mortal remains of an old inhabitant were brought to Welshpool last Wednesday for burial in the Parish Church- vard. She was the widow of the late Mr Thomas Jones, who for years lived on the Rhallt and in the town. Her mother hailod from a farm in the parish of Llanwyddyn, that was now covered by Lake Vyrniew.

The deceased had one son in Wellington, New Zealand. COUNCIL-CHAMBER DIGNITY. Was there not a resolution passed by the Borough Council that the Council Chamber should not be let to any persons? This query was put last Thursday by Councillor Rd. Jenkins, who observed that they had refused permission to rail wayman attending in their Sunday clothes, and yet he saw that the footballeis were advertised to hold a meeting in that room. He moved that they stick to the resolution passed. It was no use passing a resolu- tion at one meeting and undoing it at the next. The Mayor (Dr. Thomas) did not think such a resolution had been passed, but it was more of an expression of opinion that the room should not be used except by the Town Council and.fhe Council.—Councillor Jenkins You will find, si that I am correct.—The Mayor I amafraid you are mistaken. Councillor Jenkins: Perhaps you will look at the minutes again, and you will once more find you are wrong (smiles).—Mr Wm. Humphreys The footballers paid the usual tariff, the railwaymen wanted a reduction to 1/6, and we could not see our way clear to grant it.-After some more talk the Council decided to charge 2/6 „ for the use of the Judge's retiring room by (:I, ,c;va. prospective evening classes. -A VERY NICE CHA.NGE.The Welshpool branch of the Church of England Men's Society had at its monthly meeting in the Powis Memo- rial* Church House last Tuesday night, what Mr Shuker described as a very nice change from their ordinary business meetings. It was a lantern lecture by Mr Rowdier (Leighton), on Life in the -Wavy He gave a homely address, with many a a varii and as an old naval man, he declared that England had risen through her navy, and would filfthrough her navy, unless care was taken. Mr Rowdier was also of opinion that no father ought to nut any obstacle in the way of a boy joining as they were often better looked after +S!r, hv their own parents, and, if he had his time tlr Je&iv he woild have another go.

DRUIDS' FETE.—This Committee has accepted a tender of Mr J. W. Evans Shrewsbury, for refresh- ments on the feta ground; no local offer waa received. Last Wednesday evening it was also decided to can- cel the condition that the prize in the male voice choir competion will be withheld, unless there are three entries. FIRST-AIDKRS ON THII: GOLFA. After a good feed we can do something! Thus spoke a St. John's Ambulance enthusiast, who had climbed the Golfa last Thursday after an 'appetizing tea in Mrs Gittins' orchard. It was a picnic attended by the men and women who have been receiving tuition in first-aid and nursing from Dr. G. A. Skinner. Friends brought the total attendance up to about 100. Near the mountain top the pleasure seekers had a pro- gramme that was of a more serious character than is generally the case at Golfa picnics. For instance, the holders of the Cambrian Railways' Ambulance Shield treated a case of supposed fracture of the spine, and afterwards the Mayor of Welshpool (Dr. Richard Thomas) adjudicated upon three competitions as follows Triangular bandaging by ladies holding first aid certificates, 1 Miss Ida Sw*n, 2 Miss Flossie Pugh, 3 Miss Parry, Heldre; triangular bandaging by men holding first aid certificates, 1 Mr Rex Manford, 2 Mr R. U. Sayee, 3 MrPeter G. Morris; triangular bandaging by holders of medallions, 1 Miss M. Jones, Castle View, 2 Mrs Riciard Evans, Gun- grog-lane, 3 Mrs J. Everall, 4 Mr Gilbert Blockley, 5 P.C. Thomas Jones. The Mayoress distributed the prizes together with the bars and in3dals, the medal- lions and certificates which the members of the various classes had gained. Mrs Thomas also handed a pair of field glasses to Dr. Skinner, who, in thanking the company referred to the local YlDg that Welsh- pool people will take up any new thing with preat enthusiasm for a short time, but scon get tired of it. Dr. Skinner hoped this would not be the case with the First-Aid and Nursing Classes. The Mayoress acknowledged a vote of thanks, which was proposed by Miss Bingham (heac mistress of the County School), and the gathering also gave three cheers for the Mayor.

LLANFAIR-CAIREINION. COUNCIL SCHOOLS. A meeting of the Manager: of the Llanfair and Rhiwhiriaeth Council School was held on Friday evening, the Chairman (M. W. Altord Jehu) presiding. EVENING SCHOOL.—I^t was stated that according to the reports in the prei that the Higher Education Committee had rcOlved to discontinue the evening schools in tha eciuty. The Managers expressed their regret that tis decision had been arrived at, as the school wa well attended and doing well at Llanfair, ad in view of the possibilities of the school in ture it was a matter for further regret that ^i.eounty were to ba deprived of their benefit. lliS the Managers been previously consulted, the hool would Dot be closed without a prime efforton their part to keep it open. A strong resolution was agreed upon to be sent to the higher Education Committee urging them to make an elleption in the case of Llanfair and allow the schoq to continue. ATTENDANCE.—The Head'Master submitted a list of scholars at the Llanfar Council School who were entitled to the prizsoffered for complete attendance at school, two having won a silver watch each for complete attbdaace for five years, three to medal and book lach for complete at- tendance for two years, and il for having made 97 per cent. for two years a )cok each. SCHOOL CLEANING.—A ler was read from the Education Authority calling attention to the in- efficient cleaning at the L'iiafair School. It was resolved to inform the Authority that inasmuch as they did not carry out th, recommendations of the Managers as to the a«\»unt to be expended upon cleaning, they could not undertake the responsibility of keeping thepremjsos in the order of cleanliness they should ,Q kept.—The Chair- man said that representation had been repeatedly made to the authority thatthe sum allotted was much too small to meet tbeextra. duties imposed upon the caretaker through-^ new arrangements within the schoolrooms and the extra fire-places which had been added, ati, the care of the out- offices, for cleaning which a; extra sum was pre- viously paid. Until the 4uthority 1-t their views in the matter. it hopeless for the managers to be able to Cply with the regula- tions much as they desired b do so. It appeared to him that the managers '\3r¡" not to be consulted in anything unless it waShy callin<r their atten- tion to a matter such as ths for the" condition of which the Authority thcselves were chiefly responsible. It was f tirthrt pointed out that the managers were much hamj6red in their duties to look after the premises. owing to the school belonging to the Authory and the building to the trustees.—It was resved to press upon the Education Authority to ta^ measures for getting the premises tranferrod frlm the tru3tees to the Authority.

LLANIDLOES. Two FINGERS OFF.-A young lad named Tom Edmunds, of the age of 14, whilst following his em- ployment as an engine feeder at the Cambrian Mills, on Friday morning had the misfortune to lose the second and thi,:d fingers on his left hanf*. He was putting a strap on a wheel when his hand slipped in between tne strap and the wheel and his fingers were cut off at the joint. Dr Owen attended to him. ACCIDENT.-A serious accident occurred at the Railway Ironworks on Friday morning. A lavge moulding box, of considerable weight, was being removed by means of a crane. In the course of the operations an iron bar was used to untwist the chain of the crane. The weight on the chain forced the bar out of the user's hands, sending it round with great force. One employee named David Jones, of Lower Green, was standing near assisting in the operations, and was struck by the bar in the face. His upper lip was slit open crossway, and he was knocked to the ground and became unconscious. He was carried out of the shop, and contact with the fresh air soon revived him. Dr Jones, who had immediately sent for, was soon on the scene, and after medical at- tention the injured man was able to walk home. He is doing as well as can be expected under the circum- stances. A TENPENNY TITHE.-Amongst the „ claims which the County Education Authority passed last Monday for payment was the following :— Llanidloes District. Manledd (Council School). Richard Gillart, Half-year's tithe, £ 0 Os. 5d. BICYCLE ACCIDENT.-On Sunday afternoon week Mr D. Jones, of Manlledd Uchaf, was cycling to town, and when coming past Westgate-terraoe on the Van-road, he unfortunately collided with Mrs Jones, who resides in one of the houses on the roadside. Both cyclist and pedestrian were injured, but not seriously. OVER THE BAR.—This is what happened to Mr Llewelyn Webb on Wednesday afternoon last while cycling along Bridge-street with some curtains on his way to the garden party. It seems the curtains and the wheels got mixed, and Mr Webb came in contact with the ground via the handle bar, and injured his hand, which had to be medically attended to. TRAGIC DEATH OF AN IDLOESIAN AT CARDIFF. —On Wednesday evening last, under tragic circumstances, the death took place ot Mr Richard Jones, retired jeweller, who formerly carried on business in Llanidloes, but of latter years had resided in Cardiff. The deceased was 7,) years of age. About 9-30 on Wednesday night he took a car at Fair Oak-road for Windsor-place. At Welfield-road, the conductor, observing symptoms of suffering in the gentleman's countenance, summoned a constable. A doctor hastened to the BCBne, but arrived only to find that Mr Jones bad expired. Mr Davies, deceased's son-in-law, stated that during the afternoon he had been in the company of Mr Jones, at Roath Park. He com- plained of feeling tired. He and his wife saw the deceased board the car, and they then walked home. GAFEDEN FETE.—Maenol, the beautiful resi- dence of Mrs Lea Jones, was on Wednesday afternoon the scene of one of the most interesting, enjoyable, and successful garden fetes ever organised by the Llanidloes Parish Church. The preliminary work, which entailed some months of labour and forethought, was superin- tended by Mr R. Evans, and the function was held on behalf of the Church fund. Among those present were Mrs Lloyd Verney and party, Llan- gurig, Mrs Lea Jones, Mrs Onslsw, Mount Severn, Rev and Mrs E. O..Jones, Col and Mrs Davies- Jenkins, Mrs Webb and family, Miss Grant, Glandwr, Mrs Lewis, Llangurig Vicarage, Mrs D. Evans, Castle House, Llanidloes, and a number of officers of the Royal Engineers. The grounds were a source of much admiration, and the arrangement of the stalls during the morning was the work of the capable superintendent and a number of the committee. The stalls, which were laden with valuable things and decorated prettily, were erected on each side of the field. The Llanidloes pierrots gave two splendid enter- tainments on the lawn. Games were indulged in through-out the afternoon, and not a dull moment was sppnt from beginning to end. The Llanidloes Borough Silver Band played selections during the afternoon, and in the evening they discoursed up-to-date music for dancing. Appended is a list of stall-holders :-Hoopla, Mr Webb; shooting gallery, Mr Pryca Williams; football, Mr H. J. B. Niblett; see-saw and swings, Mr H. A.

CAERSWS. SUCCESS.—On Sunday week special services were held in the Village Hall in connection with the Sunday School teachers and scholars of the Baptist Mission Room. The preaaher for the day was the well-known Rev J. E. Elder, Baptist minister of Oswestry, who, as usual, delivered powerful and very impressive sermons. The musical condnctor was Mr Edward Wilson, stationmaster of Moat Lane Junction, who, with his large choir, made a lasting impression upon a large audience, which filled the spacious Hall in both gallery and floor. Mr Wilson, and also the excellent accompanist, Miss Rosa Thomas, deserve great praise. The singing of the little maid, Miss Humphreys, daughter of Mr and Mrs T. Humphreys, Bridge-street, won for heiself the public opinion that she will prove a musical star of the Ancient City. The following was the procrramme :-Recitations: Misses Lena Nicholas, Enid WilsoD, Maggie Humphreys, May Jones, L. Grosvenor, Nellie Morgan, Maisie Humphreys, Lily Jones, Bessie Morgan, Maggie Hamer, Eva Jones, F. Thomas, May Jones, Llsie Jones, and Miss Facer of Llandmam, Masters Sydney Nicholas, David Nicholas, Reggie Wilffon, Hubert Wilsen and B. J. Owen. Solos: Misses L. Grosvenor, Maisie Humphreys, Mary and Bertha Davies. Choruses and anthems by the Choir, including "Resurrection, and Daughter of Zion." The anthem, "Trembling Soul, was given by special request, and also as a token of sympathy with two members of the United Choir who have lately had bereavements. Miss Facer also favoured us in her usual good style with an effective recitation. Tea was provided in the Mission Room for all visitors free of charge, about 100 partaking. The following ladies assisted with the tea, presided over by Mrs G. Morgan Mrs Evans, Hafren Cottage, Miss Wilson, Penyborfa, Miss Blodwen Jones, Post Office, Mrs and Miss Williams, Rhydfelin. The Choir was under the conductorship of Mr Wilson, Moat Lane, Miss Rosa Thomas presiding at the organ in her usual good style. The collec. tions throughout the day were exceptionally good.
MACHYNLLETH. MALE V OIE. CHOIR.—Owing to other engage- ments the members of the choir have finally decided not to compete at a North Wales Eisteddfod. FINE CATCHES.—On Monday Mr Smith, Ynys- las, landed a salmon of fifteen pounds and another of nine pounds. The next day Mr Jones, Aber- llolwyn, grassed a seventeen pounder. OBITUARY.—After a long illness there passed away on Friday week at his residence, Penybank, Derwenlas, a well-known inhabitant in the person of Mr John Edwards in his sixty-first year. He was a deacon with the Wesleyans, and the chief supporter of the cause at Derwenlas. For a long period of years he had been in the employ of the late Mr R. Owen, timber merchant, as his manager at the sawing mills, and on Mr Owen's demise his services were dispensed with. He was one of the most conscientious and straightforward men in the district. Deceased leaves a widow and several grown up children. Two of his sons emigrated to Canada a few years ago and are doing well. The funeral, which took place at the Cemetery on Tuesday, was largely attended. The officiating minister's were the Revs Evan Isaac, Jacob Pritchard, and J. Hugh Williams.
BETHANY, KERRY. THE Sunday School anniversary was held on Sunday week, the services being conducted by Mr Richard JoneR, Bryntirion. In the afternoon a full congregation assembled and listened appre- ciatively to the following programme: Recita- tions, Alma Bray, Annie Davies, Georg-e Elwyn Pryce, Maud Davies, Elsie Owen, Bryan Kinsey, Mary Kinsey, Muriel Pryce, Katie Owen, and Alice Owen; dialogue, Katie and Alice Cwen solos, Muriel Pryce, Alice Owen, and Miss Ger- trude Pryce. In the evening the chapel was crammed, many failing to get inside. The pro- gramme was both solid and edifying. Recitations were given by Alma Bray, Joice Kinsey, Alice Jones, Alice Owen, Annie Davies, Nigel Davies, Bryan Kinsey, Katie Owen, Muriel Pryce; Joice and Mary Kinsey captivated the audieuci with a beautiful dialogue, entitled, The Hebrew Maid." Solos were rendered by Annie Davies and Aliie Owen; duets, Muriel and Gertrude Pryce, also Gertrude Pryce and W. Corfield, Goitre. The little children sang sweetly under the conductor- ship of Mr R. Pryce, Manilwyd, who must have taken great pains in training them. Mi:"s Nellie Pryce, Manllwyd, presided at the organ. Mr Chapman (the superintendent) having given a brief address, the services were concluded with the Benediction.
Support the Budget! WELSHPOOL LIBERALS AND THE BOROUGH MEMBER. HOW THE RICH ROBBED THE POOR. In my opinion the great landowners of the country have not been using their posi- tion and what they possess ior the public service. They have been using it against the interest of the community." Thus spoke Mr D. J. Jones on Friday night, presiding over a meeting of the Welshpool Liberal Association's Executive. He instanced a great landowner in this neighbourhood, who had a considerable estate left him, and he decided to turn it into a rabbit-warren, and to let all the small holdings go down." The whole neighbourhood suffered, and Mr Jones de- clared that it. is not right for a man to do what he will with his own, if thereby he ruins his neighbour. During the last 200 years more than 7,000,000 acres of common land had been taken from the people, and enclosed generally by people who were al- ready rich. The Royal Commission of 1369 declared that these enclosures were often made without any compensation to the smaller owners it deprived agricultural labourers of ancient rights over the wastes, and disabled the occupants of new cottages from acquiring new rights. I say delib- erately it was robbery of the poor by the rich. The taunt is hurled against us now that this Budget is confiscation and robbery. When I think of a good many things, I might say it is an act of just and merciful restitution." After these strong words, the Executive passed the following resolution unanim- ously :— That this meeting instructs the i Secretary to write Mr Rees to inform him that the Welshpool Liberal Executive strongly support the Budget, and. ice hope our Member will give the Government every support in passing it.

She also wore on her head a Brussels net veil and orange ossoms, and carried a beautiful bouquet of white Th! 8te.Phanot1s the gift of the bridegroom. The bndesmaid Miss Dorothy Davies, niece of the bride, was prettily attired in a dress of embroidered muslin trimmed with rose ribbon, and hat to match.
