LLANIDLOES. The Medical Officer's Salary.—At the Town Council, on Thursday evening, Mr w. Turner suggested tkat appficatiea be made to the Local Government Board for payment of half the salary of the medical officer of health.—Mr Meredith thought that the acceptance of the £ 10 would mean that the Council would lose their hold on the office.-The Clerjk stated that other Councils made such applications. -Mr William Ashton pointed out that un- der the proposed arrangement the Council could not dismiss the medical officer with- out the consent of the Local Government Board, but the Clerk added that the Board invariably backed up the local authority in such a matter.—Mr Kinsey, however, held a contrary view, and advocated retain- ing full power over the officer.-Eventu ally it wais agreed to ask the Local Government Board to contribute half ef the salary.
WELSHPOOL. A New Year's Gift.—Some of the old folks over 70, who now receive parish relief, are slow to send in a claim for old-age pen- sions, which win be paid on New Year's Day. The reason given by many is that they fear to lose the medical relief. There- fore, at a meeting last Monday, the Welsh- pool Old Age Pensions Committee decided to suggest to the local Boards of Guardians that they should continue to allow the at- tendance of the parish doctor on the old age pensioners. The Clerk (Mr J. E. Tomley) remarked that the guardians would not suffer thereby, because the doctor was paid by salary, and it would be no extra charge on the rates. The meeting was attended by Messrs David Pryce (chairman), William Humphreys, John Pugh, Robert Griffiths, F. G. Howarth, C. W. Humphreys, and E. R. Owen, with Messrs W. Perry and H. J. Molineaux, pension officers. Fifty-six claims were dealt with. Fifty-four were allowed 5s weekly, and one pension was in- creased from 2s to 5-s weekly. Of the claims. 47 were those of persons now in receipt of relief from the Boards of Guardians. The full grant of 5s was made in each of these cases. The amount now paid in out-relief to these 47 persons, £ 7 Is 6d weekly, or £ 376 18s yearly, will thus be increased to £ 11 15s weekly, or Y-611 yearly. Welsh Preaching Festival.—" Sometimes we are driven to pray on failure, when things are dark. But do we pray amid success, in the period of popularity ? asked the Rev D. Wynne Evans, Llandrin- dod Wells, at the Welsh Independent- Chapel last Friday night. He and the Rev Ifor Griffith, Llanfair, preached three ser- mons each during the day, and their earn- est and eloquent ministry produced a deep impression. Cymric-speaking townspeople from the other Free Churches were at- tracted to this preaching festival, and felt' that it was good for them to be there. The many friends of the Rev Ifor Griffith were much gratified to note the marked improve- ment in his health. On Thursday night, with Mr Alfred H. Jones, Dolanog, as an excellent chairman, the Rev Wynne Evans delivered his lecture on "The Wonderful People "-the Jews. Property Sale.—On Monday, at the Royal Oak Hotel, Messrs Hall, Wateridge, and Owen, auctioneers, offered for sale the Meadowtown Farm, containing 35 acres, and it was sold to Mr Edward Jones, of Liver- pool, at £ 524. The Bank Farm, Trelystan. was put up, but was withdrawn, and after- wards sold by private treaty, at a price higher than the sum at which it was with- drawn. The Red House Farm (850 acres) and the Fir House Farm (135 acres) were withdrawn. The small holding, Black Park, was also withdrawn, but afterwards sold by private treaty.
PONTDOLGOCH. Social Evening.—The Literary and Debat- ing Society opened theiT winter session last Tuesday with a social evening. Mrs Jones, Blynawel, and Miss Jones, Tany- rallt, presided at the tea tables, assisted by a host of willing helpers. After about. sixty had done justice to the good things provided by the caterer, Mr D. Morris, New Shop, a concert was held, presided over by Mr W. Jones, Glynawel, the president of the Society, and conducted by the Rev G. Bedford Roberts, Caersws, who kept the audience in good humour throughout. The following well-known singers gave their ser- vices at the concert:—Miss Elsie Lloyd. Miss M. E. Lewis, Mr Abram Jones, and Mr Richard Evans, all of Carno, and also the well-known elocutionists from Llanbryn- mair, Messrs J. Whitefield Jones and Evan W. Jones. Mr E. Jones, J.P., Henblas. proposed a vote of thanks to all who had assisted to make the social such a success, and certainly voiced the feeling of the audience in saying that it was one of the best concerts ever held in the district. Mr R. Jones, Pertheirin, seconded. A large number were enrolled as members of the- Society at the close. The singing of the National Anthem concluded a very pleasant evening.

TREGYNON. CONCERT.—The Council Schoolroom was occupied by a large audience on Friday evening last, the occasion being a benefit concert for the widow and family of the late Mr Richard Thomas. The concert was or- ganised by an influential committee, of which Mr J. Jackson was the chairman and Mr A. R. C. Hall the hon. secretary. From the outset so deserving a cause was sure of a successful issue, and no stone was left unturned by Mr Hall and the many willing helpers to realise a substantial sum for the widow and children. Where so many did their utmost, it is almost invidious to make distinction, but the success of the venture was due in no small degree to the wide- spread and indefatigable efforts of Mr Jackson. Always ready to assist any move- ment for the assistance of those placed in unfortunate circumstances, a contingent of Wa Newtown Wesleyan Choir (through the medium of Mr David W. Oliver) spontan- eously offered to provide the programme, an offer which was gladly accepted. The committee were assisted by the ready assent of Mr W. Scott Owen in taking the chair. In prefacing the programme, Mr Scott Owen referred to the fact that the late Mr Thomas was a native of Tregynon, and to the useful service which he had rendered during his lifetime. He was desired to say that Mrs Thomas very deeply appreciated the action which had been taken on behalf of herself and her little children, and read a letter from Mrs Thomas: The Shop, Tregynon, November 11th, 1910. Dear Siri-Will you please convey my deep sense of gratitude to fhe kind friends who have done so much to help me and my family in this our time of need. I should also like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the many kindnesses towards my late husband in his long illness. It is a great comfort to know we have so many good friends, and I find it impossible to S8.y how thankful we feel, but sincerely trust you will all accept this very imperfect expression of gratitude.—I am, sir, yours most gratefully, To W. Scott Owen, Esq. MARGARET THOMAS. The choir (under the able conductorship of Mr Oliver D. S. Taylor) most effectively rendered an inspiring programme of first- class music, the rapt attention of the large audience to each item being most marked. The soloists throughout delighted the 4 audience, and Mr Morley Hughes (" The Lord is my Shepherd ") and Mr George M. Evans (" The noble boy of Truth") were 1..By encored. Solos were also rendered by Miss Taylor, Miss Winnie Edwards, Miss Connie Whittaker, Miss Doreen Taylor, Mr Norman Edwards, and Mrs C. T. M. Taylor, and anthems and part-songs by the choir. To Mr David W. Oliver and Mr O. D. S. Taylor (the organist and choirmaster re- spectively) is due all praise, the former for his skilful accompaniments (quite a feature of a masterly programme), and the latter for the excellence of his training. The singing of the National Anthem and votes of thanks to the artistes and Chairman concluded the concert. After the concert, Mr and Mrs, Hudson Phillips very kindly extended a cordial invitation to the choir to partake of supper, over which the Rev Mark Martin presided. The thanks of all were accorded J to Mr and Mrs* Phillips for their generosity and kindly thought by the Rev Mr Martin and Mr Oliver Taylor.
LLANFYLLIN. MAYOR-MAKING.—The ex-Mayor (Mr Thos. Edwards) presided over the annual meet- ing of the Llanfyllin Town Council on Wed- nesday. The retiring Mayor, Mr Ellis Roberts, wrote from London regretting his absence, and thanking the Council for the kindness they had shown him during his year of office as mayor, and during the many years he had been a member of the Council.—The ex-Mayor, in moving that Mr J.- Marshal? Dugdale be elected mayor, said he was highly respected, deeply interested in the town and neighbourhood, a land- owner, an employer of labour, and took a deep interest in educational and agricul- tural affairs, and also had the trade and prosperity of the town at heart. He had been linked with the Council ever since 1895. His respected father filled the office of mayor for five successive years, and also had the, distinction of being the best mayor of Llanfyllin. Two great events would mark the coming year-the coronation of tlftg George V. and the investiture of the Prince of Wales. When these events took place, Llanfyllin could not be more fittingly and worthily represented than in the per- son of Councillor John Marshall Dugdale.— Mr Robert Jones seconded, and Mr J. Pentyrch Williams and, Mr William Ellis supported, and the motion was carried.—Mr Dugdale, after taking the oath, was formally invested with the chain of office. Thanking the Council for the honour, he remarked that he did not expect them to elect him for the fifth time, and he thought that a younger man should have had the honour of being mayor for the Coronation year. Not only his own party, but the Radicals also sent a deputation saying it was their wish that he should be mayor, and there- tore anything he could do for the good of the town would be done. He proposed that a vote of thanks be passed to the retiring Mayor for the way in which he had filled the office of mayor for the past year.—Mr W. A. Pughe seconded, and the motion was carried unanimously.
