ROYALTY at WELSH POOL
ROYALTY at WELSH POOL After 55 Years. Princess" Marie Louise" visits a Deserted Castle, Through an Empty Town. Her Highness Princess Francisca Josepha LOUISE AUOUSTE Marie Christine Helene of SCHLESWIG- HOLSTEIN, Order of Victoria and Albert, Order of the Crown of India: bom, August 12th, 1872; was 1891-1900 Princess Atibert of Anhalt," but her marriage was dissolved by joint request to suit a new family law of that Ducal houae. Residence—21, Queensbary Place, S,W.-WHITAKER'S PEERAGE. Oh, dear! When is the Princess coming ? The almost breathless speaker was a worthy Welshpool lady; the time last Thursday morning. She was anxiously seeking information from a well-established tradesman, who did net seem to realize that it is more than half a century since any member of the reigning Royal Family had last visited the ancient town. His answer came brief, decisive and almost careless in tone. I don't know Then you've heard nothing about it ? asked the lady somewhat surprisedly. Not a word Let me see. She's coming to-day ? "I don't know." Dear me! I thought everybody in Broad- street would know. WHAT A STRANGE THING!" Very quietly had Princess "Marie Louise's' Trisit to Powis Castle been arranged. The news first appeared in the 'Express' a fortnight ago, apparently before the event was known even to local high authorities," who promptly pooh- poohed the announcement. But, though this ignorance was at last dispelled, many of the townsfolk could hardly believe that Her Highness "would be coming to Welshpool on July 22nd, the very day of the Church Trip to Aberystwyth. A Welshpool tradesman, however, who is also a man-of-the-world, summed np the situation as follows: "Of course, they wanted to keep it quiet! The don't want to have all the people staring and gawking at them all the time! It was just the same when the Countess first came to Welshpool. If the people would see her carriage outside a shop thè)"d crowd on the pavement. At last she wouldn't go. It's the same everywhere; they're no different. When the King goes to Marienbad for the waters, they've to ask and pray people there not to humbug him." And would not this be the third time for Royalty to pass through the town this year? Did not His Imperial Highness the Grand Duke Michael of Russia visit the Castle in January ? And a German Prince and Princess in February ? Yet, the townspeople of Welshpool were last Thursday not so much blase as absent or unawares. Whether the Poolouians believed or disbelieved that Princess Marie Louise" was coming, general curiosity expressed itself in one question, WHO IS SHE ? The answer was readily given by those who keep in touch with the genealogy and movements of t.ha Pniiol I'omilr "Whvi T)nn't vnii ]rnow P She's a niece for our King she's a daughter for Princess Christian, his sister! Or, to quote Princess Marie Louise's" parentage, according to the official language of the Peerage,' (her mother being the fifth child of the late Queen Victoria, and a public pensioner to the extent of zC6,000 a year) H.R.H. HEhENA, Princess CHRISTIAN of SCHLESWIG HOLSTEIN Sonderbarg Augustenburg (Princess HELENA Augusta. Victoria of the United Kingdom), Duchess of Saxony, and Princess of Saxe. Coburg and Gotha, Order of Victoria and Albert, Order of the Crown or India Royal Red Cross born at Buckingham Palace, May 25, 1846; married (at Windsor Private Chapel, July 5. 1866) to H.R.H. Prince CHRISTIAN (Friedrich Christian Carl August) of ScHLESwiG-HOLSTEIN-Sonderburg-A-ugustenburg, Knight of Garter, Privy Councillor, Knight Grand Cross Royal Victorian Order. a General in the British Army, High Steward of Windsor, and a Personal Aide-de-Camp to H.M. (born January 22,1831 created "Royal Highness" by English Warrant 1886, his sons and daughters being Highness.") Walshpool and Powis Castle ware deserted last Thursday. Nearly all the townsfolk who had not gone to Aberystwyth with the cheap excursion were at their dinner when the Princess arrived, and they were having tea when she went away. In one respect the notable visitor unconsciously imitated the Duke of Beaufort, who, as Lord President ot Wales and the Marches, visited the Castle 225 years ago though neither the Earl of Powis nor his Countess were there. The English workman has been for some time in possession at the Big House," or-to quote once more the words of a Welshpool tradesman- THE CASTLE STANDS DESHABILLE. Last Monday-on the eve of the half-yearly rent audit—Lady Powis had gone to Paris, en route for Mont Dore on the Riviera. The Earl had arrived by train in Welshpool on Wednesday afternoon to see about the morrow's arrangements, and then late the same night he motored back to his Shropshire seat at Walcot, where he remained. Princess Marie Louise" had arrived in the neighbourhood on Wednesday evening from Euston. She stayed at Orleton Hall, Wellington, the seat of Lord Powis's popular and gallant cousin, Colonel E. W. Herbert, C.B., and she had a personal, military and municipal welcome on her arrival. Colonel Herbert and Major-General Sir Francis Lloyd, D S.O., commanding the "Welsh" Territorial Division, received her at the railway station, and near by was drawn up a Territorial guard of honour, the Wellington Company of the 4th King's Shropshire Light Infantry; also in attendance there stood 32 Army veterans. The local Councillors, together with an illuminated address, were presented to the Princess at the Market-square, and she expressed appreciation ot the kind welcome given to her by the inhabitants and the governing body. Thousands of spectators cheered as she passed through the gaily decorated streets of Wellington to Orleton Hall. But at Welshpool on Thursday not a drum was heard, not a musical note, save the band of the Liverpool Telegraph "Terriers" practising in Oldford camp. Not a flag was to be seen either over the Parish Church or the Town Hall, and, of course, in the absence of the Earl and Countess, not over Powis Castle A little off the Royal route a large Union Jack floated from the Royal Oak." Further down the Severn-road a small, dingy banner braved the breeze, from the rustic post near a weather-beaten Powysland notice board, which advertizes building land to let on lease;" this flag had been braving the breeze since last Empire Day." The town was quiet, exceptionally quiet. To quote once more the words of a philosophic shopkeeper, If Royalty's coming here privately, let them! What's the use of fussing and decorating ? Princess Marie Louise had been expected to arrive at noon, which, in the Royal sense of the word, proved to be a quarter-past one o'clock. Then a MAGNIFICENT, DARK GREEN MOTOR-CAR, covered over, came on the scene, up Salop-road, Broad-street, High-street, down Park-lane, and into the Castle demesne—a thirty-mile drive after mid-day from Orleton. The Park roadway had been swept clean and tidied up, and not even the bourgeoise folk were allowed to pass the second gate during the afternoon. (It was just like Sunday). Twenty minutes later another motor-car—light red in colour and open—followed the same route right through into the Dairy square, where the estate office is situated, and where Mr Forroster Addie, the estate agent, dwells. It was he who received the Royal party. They had luncheon in a tent on the grassy paddock under the shadow of the Red Castle and its terraces. Certain portions of the Castle were inspected, and the Princess saw the -State rooms wherein Queen Victoria, her grand- mother, and the Duchess of Kent, her great grandmother, had once been lodged. It is 55 years since the last members of the reigning Royal House had been at the Castle, in the persons of the late Duchess of Cambridge and her daughter, Princess Mary (afterwards Duchess of Kent) by a curious coincidence they also had come over from a Shropshire seat, Rowton Castle, with Lady Charlotte Lister, before returning to London. But that party had been received by the late Earl and his mother, the late Countess. Thursday's programme had oitiginally included a journey through the county town of Montgomery to Lymoro Hall, which was once the seat of the Herberts of Chirbury, and is now possessed by Lord Powis. But owing to the shortness of the time after a drive through the Park, the Mont- gomery outing was abandoned, and the Princess "HONOURED" MR AND MRS ADDIE with her presence at The Dairy to tea. The return journey was started at five o'clock. On Friday the Princess opened a garden fete and sale of work in Orleton Park to get funds for the new Parish Hall at Wrockwardine on the Orleton estate. On Saturday the Princess went away. The few men-in-the-street who witnessed any- thing of this royal tour through the main streets of Pool had little time to form many impressions. But one citizen had the good fortune to be stand- ing by the Cross Pump just after five o'clock, when the dark green motor-car drove down Broad-street and slowed at the turning. "No," this spectator told his friends afterwards, "I didn't see the Princess, but I saw the Princess' car, a beautiful car, noiseless as travelling. But a peculiar horn it had, rather unlike any horn I'd heard; it made a queer scraping noise. And the chauffeur was extraordinary careful in his manipulation as he went round into Church-street. He had a sort of drabby uniform or shooting dress on, and a nice, genial-looking face; looked as if he wouldn't run over a fly. Some of these fellows, you know, look Now, then, out of the road I'm coming!' The car slipped by me, and someone said.' That's the Princess!' But it was gone. If I'd known, I should have LOOKED AT HER, YOU BET!" This noticeable vehicle bslonged to and was driven by a young but wealthy man, who owns five other motor cars as well. He is a Mr Lionel Munro, and was a member of the house party at Orleton Hall. The others who accompanied Princess Marie Louise" to Powis Castle were :— Miss Hawkes (her lady-in-waiting), Colonel and Mrs Herbert and Miss Dcrothy Herbert, Sir Harry Mainwaring, Bart., and General Lloyd. Princess Marie Louise," one of the most ac- complished members of the Royal Family, is no mean artist, particularly in making enamel jewellery—as a hobby, of course. Proudest of all the plebeian Poolomans last Thursday, perhaps, was the lady spectator, who caught s:ght of her whom so many missed. Having identified the Royal V'sitor motoring through the empty town in the L N." (London) conveyance, she observed, The Princess was sitting with a young fellow in the front of the car, and some of the suite were in the body of the car at the back. The Princess was dressed in cream tweed with black stripes, and a black hat with flowers, and a rose-coloured motor-scarf. She was fair and plain looking!
Borough Member and the Czar.
Borough Member and the Czar. MR. REES CHAMP ONS THE:: RUSSIAN EMPEROR. The Emperor of Russia-whom Tolstoi described as a Hanging Tzar-will shortly meet King Edward on English waters. This visit was severely criticised, last Thursday, in Parliament, where the" Little Father" found his doughty champion in the Liberal Member for the Mont- gomery Boroughs. Mr Rees, as one who had lived among the Russian peasants, declared that he could testify to the affection of the people with the Emperor. So far as the prisons were were concerned, he had travelled all over Siberia, and had seen most or the prisons in the countiy, and, if ever it was his misfortune to be imprisoned, he would rather be imprisoned in Siberia than any other place in the world, because most of the prisoners there were perfectly free to do what they liked and go where they liked, so long as they did not leave Siberia, and those who were kept under rigorous confine- ment were such as in this country would have been hanged for assassination. Mr Rees said he had met the Emperor as a young man, and knew him to be a humane man, and the one impression that he formed of him was that, if he was in one respect wanting, it was that he was not made of SUFFICIENTLY STERN STUFF for the great position he was called upon to hold. Was this country, at a time when other nations were arming to the teeth, to refuse to fraternise with Russia, or with any other nation except those Governments and monarchs which came up to some ideal and standard, which probably only existed in the imagination of the Socialist? It was most deplorable that the visit of the Emperor, the result ot which would be so valuable to both countries, could not be allowed to take place without there being a discussion of this sort, in which epithets were hurled at the head of a friendly nation. Mr Ponsonby (Radical member for Sterling Boroughs, and private secretary to the late "C.B.") regretted that no objections to the pending visit had been raised from the Liberal side of the House, and felt that it was a very curious way of showing sympathy with the Russian people to give an official reception to their oppressor. By 187 votes to 79, a small attendance at the House endorsed the Tzar's visit.
The County Member's Third…
The County Member's Third Pack. Montgomeryshire sportsmen will be ^^r" ested to leam that Mr David Davies, has purchased a pack of beagles, with which he intends to hunt the hare in the southern part of the county next season. Formerly four packs of harriers were kept in the county, namely, Captain Adams (Carno), Mr Bennett's (Caersws), Mr Daw- son's (Newtown), and Captain Hay hurst s (Welshpool), but owing to the deaths of the masters and other causes the hunts have been abolished for some years. Hares are abundant on most of the large estates, and the sportsmen hope that the venture will receive the support of the tenant farmers, on whom will rest the burden of providing sport. # Mr Davies already possesses a pack of fox hounds and otter hounds, both of which he hunts at his own expense, and to be also master ot narriers is an experience probapiy unique in the country, and a position which only a millionaire could well maintain The Plas Dinam kennel huntsman and first whipper in to the pack of fox hounds is Mr William George, who came recently from the Tivy-side (West Wales) hunt.
TRAGIC) OCCURRENCE AT N fiWTOWN".
TRAGIC) OCCURRENCE AT N fiWTOWN". Llanfair Native's Sudden Death. After anfabsonce) from British shores of 69 years, William Gittings, a native of Llanfair Caereinion, expired in tragic fashion in the "Elephant and Castle" Hotel, Newtown, on Sunday evening, at about 8-30. Deceased left Wisconsin, U.S.A., on the 14th inst., and sailed for this country on the Mauretania. After spending a few days in London, accompanied by his son, he arrived in Newtown on Saturday evening and took up his quarters at the Elephant Hotel. Yesterday he attended morning service at the Welsh Congrega- .111 ..I -1\ .1. -I!L- tional Chapel (Mutora-ro»u/, m mo mcernoon lie took a country walk with his son and in the even- I ing he attended the Welsh C.M. Chapel. At the latter place of Worship, although, invited to address a few words to the congregation, and able to speak the Gymraeg fluently, he declined After service he agaiu went for a short walk and returned to his hotel. Whilst sitting in the Hotel coffee room and conversing upon their tour with his son, who was showing him a map of Montgomeryshire, he suddenly flung up his arms and fell. Miss Barrington immediately summoned Dr Wilson, who arrived to find that Mr Gittings had a fatal seizure of apoplexy, to which he rapidly succumbed. Deceased was 88 years of age, and in the year 1840 his father had taken him and his two sisters (the youngest of whom survives) from Llanfair-Caereinion to America. He was the owner of a large farm at Racine, Wisconsin, and retired twelve years ago from active work, though he still kept sixty dairy cattle and supplied Horlick's Malted Milk Com- pany. The son, Mr R. G. Gittins—who made his maiden trip across the Atlantic-is secretary of a large furniture manufacturing company in the same state. The deceased gentleman and his son bad projected spending a fortnight in Mont- go meiyshire, touring the district round Llanfair and around Llanwrin, the home of Mr Gittings's late wife. They also intended visiting the Welsh National Show, at Aberystwyth, and last night they had been making their plans; by the irony of fate, whilst making arrangements, the old gentle- man contracted his fatal seizure. It is probable that the apoplexy was induced by the excitement at returning to the scenes of his boyhood.

There was the usual preliminary to all good feeling in the shape of two substantial repasts, and the remainder of the time was spent by the trippers as fancy dictated, a large number patronising the skating ring. The arrangements were in the capable, hands of Messrs. C. Taylor, R. Goodwin, and T. Beddoes. CYCLE CARNIVAL.—At a meeting of the Carnival Committee, it was decided to hold the annual Carnival on September 11th, commencing with a comic football match in the afternoon, illuminated torchlight parade in the evening and a fancy dress ball on the following Monday, Sept. 13th.

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. Jones, B.A. (Wales), who has been nnnieifar\f m 1 sffQOC? 0.4-- 4-1 V* CI 1 1. a ASOIORAUW C»U TUE L;ouEiuy ounooi ior two years, is leaving the town, having had a similar appointment in the Grammar School for boys and girls at Lymm, in Cheshire. At the Presbyterian Chapel on Sunday she was resented by the Christian Endeavourers with a fountain pen. The Rev Howell Williams (pastor) landed this useful utensil to her; he spoke highly of her good qualities and services, and resetted her going away. Addresses in a similar strain were given by Mr Joseph H. Davies, J.P. Mrs Davies, Mr William Roberts, B.Sc. (County School), Mr H. Barrow Evans (North and Soith Wales Bank), Mr William Evans (Battington Hall) and others. Miss Jones duly acknowledged :he gift, the appre- ciation and the good wishes. 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.

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.

Large numbers visit the excavations which are in full swing. Crowds of ladies and gentlemen also visit the Museum at the Vil- lage Hall. The majority are the better class of people. Scores say they have never seen the ancient city before. Not only do they admire and take a deep interest in the Roman Relics and the excavations, but their admiration of the scenery of this neighbourhood is intense. What a won- derful city we live in THE Royal Commissioners, with Sir John Rhys as chairman, visited the excavations at Caersws on Wednesday last. They were shown over the camp, and visited the local museum containing the relics, etc., already obtained. Afterwards they were entertained to luncheon at the Buck Hotel by Professor R. C. Bosanquet, who is in charge of the excavations. What on earth will the fnlks over the Vastre say ? I fancy that they are staggered at the news from the An- cient City."—Caersws Correspondent.
LLANFYLLIN. Ar« aeetSsff of tb* oavly formed junior fjafnrm Club at Llanfyllin held on Tuesday night the following resolution was unanimously and enthu- siastically passed" That this meeting welcomes the introduction of the Budget, especially those clauses dealing with the taxation of land values, and cordially wishes Mr Lloyd George every suc- cess in the passage of the Bill through Parlia- ment." Copies of the resolution were directed to be sent to Mr Lloyd George and to the Borough and County Members. THE COUXTY SCHOOL.—There were present at a meeting of the managers on Monday: Mr J. Marshall Dugdale (chairman), Mr J. P. Williams (vice-chairman), Mrr Leslid, Mrs C. R. Jones, Messrs J. Lomax, W. Jones, and Dr F. F. Jones, together with the clerk, Mr Ellis Roberts, and the leadmaster, Mr Hawke Dawe. Mr E. C. Davies son of Mr Moses Davies, wrote thanking the Managers for their recent congratulatory letter. Mr D. Davies, M.P., wrote enclosing a handsome donation toward the Dry Rot Fund for the repair of the school, and on the motion of the Chairman, Mr Davies was thanked for his kindness. The Headmaster reported that the number of pupils in the school was 48. He recommended that the holidays should begin on Friday, and that the next term should commence on September 14th. Miss Foulkes Jones, B.A., of Bangor had been appointed in the place of of Miss C. R. Jones, who had gone to Ruthin and had resigned her position on the staff, Mr Ellis Roberts had kindly presented the School library with Gibbon's Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire." He thought it advisable if they recommended to the County Education Committee that the David Davies Scholarship should be tenable for for four years instead of three. The report was adopted.
LLANDINAM. WE had a grand time, we did just what we liked; played tennis on the lawns in our thick boots and lost over 20 new balls, and they only laughed at us." In this way a county school lad summed up the outing toSPlasdinam which had been arranged by Mrs Edward Davies for the benefit of the staff and pupils of Newtown and Llanidloes Intermediate schools. The picnic was held on Friday in favourable weather. Sports and games were provided, also retreshments ad lib, or rather ad infinitum. The proceedings were further enlivened by the music of the band of the 7th Battalion R.W.F. (under the baton of Bandmaster Tom Reynolds). The school gover- nors with their wives and friends were also present, and Mrs Davies was accorded the heartiest thanks of those present for her hospitality, Dr. Wilscn and Mr Gwilym Edmunds being spokesmen. MUSICAL.-A programme of vocal and instru- mental music was performed in the C.M. Chapel on Thursday evening. The proceedings were opened with a prayer by the Pastor (Rev Richard Jones) and a hymn, which was heartily sung by a large congregation. Two choral items were tune- fully rendered by the choir. Mr William John Evans, although suffering from a severe cold, gave finished renderings of two exacting solos. Miss Davies, of Plasdinam, gave a violin solo, and also a duett with Miss Gemmill. Both of these items were keenly and deservedly appreciated, for the spirit and the score of the compositions were exquisitely translated into sound. The organ (one of Conacher's), which has recently been very much enlarged, was re-opened by Mr W. P. Phillips, who played a number of selections which were intended to demonstrate the wonderful resources of the instrument. Appended is the progamme:— Organ Solo (a) Allegro pomposo Roseingrave (b) Flute Solo Arne Solo Oh God have Mercy Mendelssohn Mr W. J. EVANS.

The visitors won the toss and knocked up 166 for the loss of only 2 wickets, and then the innings was declared. J. Hilton Jones, Pape, Bushell, and Perry alll played good cricket, but the home bowlers had the worst luck, several catches being dropped. The pitch was hard and crumbled badly after the homesters went in, a state of affairs of which the Welshpool bowlers took full advantage, their fast short- pitched deliveries being most disconcerting to the batsmen, if whom Shaw was the only one to reach double figures.

Mr. Heap's Protectionist Pudding.
Mr. Heap's Protectionist Pudding. Sir,—We are still waiting to know how we, who are working men in these boroughs, are going to improve our condition by paying more taxes. No one has yet come forward to guarantee the higher wages. Mr Heap, of -Mellington Hall, has furnished us with some particulars of the trade in America. I do not think this will help us out very much. We have to depend a good deal on outside places for cheap food and cheap raw material, whilst America can produce nearly everything she requires. I think Mr Heap should compare the state of this country when we had Protection here, with the state of thin^c "1"1,1" Free Trade. Mr Heap said the proof of the pudding is in the eating. I have learned from my departed friends that they had very little pudding to eat when our country was under Protection. When Mr Chamberlain started his mission we were to have our bread, meat, and manufactured goods taxed. He said we were to make sacrifices for the benefit of the Colonies. Since Mr Chamberlain has quitted the active part of the Pro- tectionist work, the plank has become somewhat wider. I should be glad if Mr Heap would kindly furnish a further list of the articles they intend to tax. Also, inform us for whom the further sacrifices are to te made. The rich noblemen and the Confederates are most active in pushing this Protectionist work forward. Will they come next to the colonies for our sacrifices ? These gentle- men must have some axes to grind other than brotherly love, or they would not turn their best men out of the party.—I am, etc., July 23rd, 1909. A BOROUGH ELECTOR
LOCAL h TERRIERS" UNDER CANVAS.
LOCAL h TERRIERS" UNDER CANVAS. BILLY'S VAGARIES. Our Camp correspondent wires from Aber- gavenny on Sunday m"rning as follows: Our special train left Welshpool at 9-45 un Saturday morning, picking up en route Ter- ritorials at Montgomery, Newtown, Llau- dinam, and Llanidloes stations. The jour- ney throughout was nn st enjoyable, and the scenery varied and interesting. \\e steamed into Abergavennv about 3-31.1 p.m., e^et' ky the band and the regimental Bill}-, at once made tracks ior the camp- ing ground through the town. We found the camp situated in an ideal spot, and the only respect in which it is inferior to Conway is the absence ot the sea. We are situated right in the heart of the hills, and the view looking from the camp upon the town is magnificent. One old man told Die yesterday that we should get some "rough- ing" on those hills, which seem higher than ours in Montgomeryshire, though strongly reminiscent of the country between Newtown and Llanidloes one would al- most imagine that we were camping on the Bryn Bank and looking down upon New- town. All was bustle and excitement on our arrival, and the camp soon resounded with the "tap, tap" of tent mallets the filling of beds with straw also occupied our attention, and soon our quarters were ready. The goat is stationed in a tent be- hind the Llanidloes lines. One of our terriers went to make his acquaintance and pass the time <>f day, but the regi- mental pet, not liking the intrusion, re- warded his visitor with a. well-planted dig in the ribs, which sent the visitor off scowl- ing and muttering imprecations upfti Billy's head. Billy, the last time I saw him. was still in a sulky frame "f mind—perhaps the railway journey may account for il. As usual, at the commencement things were not in apple-pie order, and when we got our tea we were more than hungry. The men's mess is nuw f..r the first time in the history of the corps held in a large marquee, and the shouting and din of 4<MJ hungry souls banging tin cups and plates was simply terriftic. Several of the old hands say they would prefer the old sys- tem of meals in the tents. There is a good refreshment tent in camp under the ex- perienced charge of Mr John Bennett, and we are able to supplement the menu there. After tea, a stroll round the town, which looks simply overrun with Territorial-. There are over 6,<KKt men camping here. I am informed. The Denbighshire and Flint- shire Battalions arrived very late, and nur men went to sleep to the beating of drums and the strains of band music. Everyone is in the best of spirits. We had a heavy downpour of rain in the night, and consider- able rain to-day. Divine service was held at 10-30 this morning.
COUNTY SPORT. The recently formed County Cricket Club has made an excellent start by a handsome victory over Denbighshire. A nut able posi- tion in Welsh cricket is promised for this organisation, possessed as it is of remarka- bly good talent, and captained by a gentle- man who combines admirable cricketing with an inspiring personality. It illustrates what, might be accomplished in local foot- ball, which has fallen upon degenerate days. Of talent there is plenty, but the multi- plicity of competitive clubs has rendered it nugatory. So long as the ambition of these clubs is but to shine in junior leagues, we can never hope to see the Welsh national trophy in Montgomeryshire, and without this hope public interest in football must decline. If it be impracticable to organise a county club, at least a combination of Newtown players, properly trained and sufficiently supported, would give a good account of itself in the race for national honours. The suggestion ought to commend itself to those in authority. One of the most pleasing features of county sport is the development of golf, which is attracting1 all classes to the breezy links. We hope that a county golf league will be established soon.

LLAXWNOG. A DELIGHTED "VILLAGE.—The District Council. through the agency of the Surveyor, has (says our correspondent) made a wonderful improvement in the streets ot Llanwnog village. Tons of stone have been laid down on the streets and consoli- dated by the steam roller. The inhabitants of the village now rejoice that their streets are quite up to date. It is to be hoped that chese welcome improvements foreshadow others equally desirable. At the north end of this picturesque little village there is a road known to the parishioners as ion-lane. It is a most important road, inas- much as it leads to Zion Chapel. The squire of the parish (Mr Edward Reynold Hughes) also has his residence at Tanralt, a short distance above the chapel, to which there is a daily postal delivery. Besides a number of children during wixter and summer traverse the above road morn- ing and evening, and yet it is not too much to say that Saul, the son of Kish, when he sought his father's asses never travelled a rougher or a more primitive road. It is to be hoped that the Kerry steam roller will soon be seen and heard on the above road.
