SERGEANTS-AT-MACE AND SABBATH OBSERV- ANCE 88 years ago.—In July, 1821-a vestry meeting held in the Parish Church of Welshpool, ordered unanimously that the sum of .£10 be paid to the Sergeant-at-Mace for the current year, commencing at the previous Easter, as a remunera- iton for their services in preserving the peace of the town on the Sabbath Day, in aid of the like sum advanced by the Corporation of Pool and the Welshpool Association for the Prosecution of Felons for the like purpose. ANGLICAN CHILDREN'S Azz-NVAL.-The Rev J. Latimer Jones, vicar of Llanfair, was the special preacher at the Anglican children's yearly Flower Service. From the usual starting point in Berriew-road, the usual Sunday Schools marched in the usual way, headed by the usual Band, along the usual route, to the usual Parish Church. Last Thursday the usual number-about 1,300- from the town and district went by the usual trip to the usual place. But at Aberystwyth an unusual accident happened, and yet another unusual mishap on the return journey. THE DEJIAND FOR SHOP-PBOPEP.XY.—A sub- stantial block of property in the main street was advertized to be far sale at the Royal Oak Hotel the other Thursday afternoon. The auctioneer and one or two solicitors attended, but there was not a single bidder for any of the lots, which com- prised two Broad-street shops, now occupied by Miss Everall and Mr Albert Turner, and formerly known as London House, together with dwellings and other premises in the rear, extending towards Puzzle-square. A few days previously another Broad-street shop, which had been put up for sale, was withdrawn. PRESENTATION TO A SCHOOLMISTRESS.—Miss Alicia G.

A BUSINESS-LIKE LOCAL PREACHER.—One Saturday afternoon this montl a popular young local preacher booked from Wilshpool station to Llanrhaiadr-Mochant, where h< was due to preach on the morrow. The ticket colt Is. 10 £ d-> and he left by the 4-55 p.m., train in )rder to catch the 5-30 train from Oswestry balk to Llanrhaiadr. But instead of reaching Oswesty at the appointed time, 5-20, the local preacher express arrived a few minutes after the last criopiction with Llan- rhaiadr had departed, and he WM 15 miles from his destination. But, though a son of light, this local preacher was wise in his generation, and came to the conclusion that, siaRe he had paid Is. lOdid, for a ticket to Llanrhaiadr, the Cambrian Company was responsible for his conveyance to that station. He might have hired a bicycle, but under the circumstances he did not see why he should kill" himself. So ha hired a rubber- tyred trap for 15s., and was driven to Llanrhaiadr, where he arrived about nine o'clock. He sent a claim to the Company for l., which was duly paid last Wednesday. AD.d nce then the local preacher has been, if possible more genial and smiling than usual. A MESSAGE FROM AUSTR^LIA—LAST; week— just when the talk of the tovn had a peculiar and personal reference to Itard Times "—there arrived in Welshpool a tttle volume from Australia. It was written ly "two friends"- one of whom is Mr Ricbrd Lawson, M.A., Principal of Warrnambool Cotage and a brother- in-law to Mr E. R. Jones, son of Alderman David Jones, J.P,, Spring Bank, Wehhpool. Mr Lawson possesses the gift of writing virile verse in good Anglo-Saxon, understanded of the people, utterly unlike both as regards style and matter to the rhymes of that Imperial POelaster Mr Rudyard Kipling. One of the most sluing of Mr Law- son's poems is entitled "G^od Times," in the course of which he says:- I'd like to make it hard for Inch As make it hard for otherg. This grinding down's the tbg that keeps All men from being brothtrSi I'd like to take all guns and shells And throw them in the so.. This plan of breeding men kill is poor philosophy. Bat the weary, weary wait\j„ For this grand Millenium. If the Good Time's really ckraing Surely now's the time to >ome_ To weak or strong, or old q. young Mere liking does no gooc. It puts no clothes upon theback It fills no mouth with foq. So while waiting for the milenium That's coming rather la^ I'll rise and help to pave tG; road Towards the pearly gate And be it twenty million ytara Or be it only one, When the Great Inspectorometb, May Hejpass the work lv-e done. THAT gets my blood up" said a Pool- onian ex-soldier yesterday ag the Telegragh Terriers' Band played "Men of Harlech" on their way to St. Maiv5 parish Church. Dr Grimaldi Davies. faring his scarlet Oxford hood over his surplice, took the service, and Mr Forrestp Addie read the lessons. The singing q two hymns was accompanied by the ban|, «God save the King," which had been >iaye(] a3 a volun- tary by Mr T. Maldwyn prjce, R.A.M., as the companies entered the church, was played by the band after the Vicar's bene- diction. Operations hav3 been carried on in earnest during the \reek. Dr Crump, who is medical officer to te camp, has had no serious cases to trett. The regimental sports will be held on the football field on Wednesday, and a camp fire concert at night, to which all townsr^en are weIcome.
