MACHYNLLETH. THJiJ PROPOSED COUNTY ASYLUM.—The Board of Guardians, on Wednesday, heard a letter read from the Forden Union inquiring whether in the event of the Forden Workhouse being converted into an asylum, a number of inmates could be accommodated at Machynlleth, and on what terms. The Board postponed consideration of the question. MATRIMONIAL.—On Monday, at the Register Office, the marriage took place of Mr William Pugh, Tanybryn, Eglwysfach, to Miss Hannah Davies, Henhafod, Taliesin. On the same day and place, Mr Owen Roger Williams, Dolfonddu, Llanwrin, was married to Miss Margaret Jane Jones, Factory, Carno. NATIONAL SCHOOLS.—The annual examination took place on Tuesday by the Rev R. Jones, dio- cesan inspector. He expressed satisfaction with the work done both in the mixed and infants' department. The Rev C. P. Lloyd (rector), with Mr Edmund Gillart and Dr A. O. Davies (mana- gers), were present. A PARENTAL THREAT.—At the Rural District Council, on Wednesday, a letter was read from Isygarreg Parish Council complaining of the bad condition of the road from the old Llyfnant bridge to Derwenlas. and it was suggested that the old bridge should be rebuilt. Parents threat- ened to remove their children to a school in another county.—Mr Lewis Lewis did not think the bridge required rebuilding, as there was not much traffic, although it separated two parishes and two counties. A new bridge had been erected across the river.—The Surveyor said the road had been attended to, and the question of the bridge was deferred. MINUS Two LIMBS.—At the Board of Guardians on Wednesday, application was made for a grant of JB2 10s towards providing a man with a wooden arm. This unfortunate man is also minus a leg as the result of an accident while working upon the construction of the Cambrian Railways. Be- sides being able to earn a little, he had also 19s 3d weekly as compensation. In supporting the application, Mr Richard Jones said it was not a case of destitution, but the man deserved sym- pathy because of his efforts to maintain himself under great disadvantages. There were many people who did not try to work and made them- selves necessitous in order to obtain relief.—Mr John Evans: This is not a place for sympathy, but for cases of necessity.—The application was not granted. AN INTERESTING STATEMENT.—Writing on the Pennal road to the Rural District Council, Mr Anwyl, Lligwy, stated that he found the work which should be done to the road past Gwerniago and Cefncaer this winter, in addition to what he had already done this year, was a great deal more than he could undertake. He suggested that a committee should be appointed to see what he had done and what needs doing, and report as to the advisability of increasing the grant of C5 made to him. He had spent a large sum of money on the road by which others received benefit, and he had done good service to the rate- payers of Merioneth in stopping the carrying of excessive loads. He had also tried to get atten- tion paid to this serious question in Montgomery- shire, but so far in vain. He knew where illegal loads were now hauled daily.—At the Council meeting, on Wednesday, Mr Owens said the road was as flat jas a table, and there was not much traffic. He proposed that the letter should be re- ferred to the Parish Council.—This was agreed to.
