NEWTOWN. SECOND ANNUAL SPECIAL EWE FAIR.—A very large number of ewes of good quality were penned on Monday. Buyers were scarce, and only a few choice lots changed hands, not more than one sixth of the whole being sold. Long-tailed ewes sold best. Prices varied from 2ts to 30s each, second class from 20s to 24i, Shropshires from 27s to 32s, Welsh ewes from 12s o 15s. The arrangement of the Local Board for penning the sheep in the centre of the back lane gave great satisfaction to the farmers. A PLEASANT SUNDAY AFTERNOON—A most attractive service was held at the Baptist Chapel on Sunday afternoon. A large number attended, und the meeting only lasted three-quarters of an hour. T. Parry-Jones, Esq., J.P., occupied the chair, and in a few appropriate remarks explained the objects of the Pleasant Sunday A trrioon, and how eminently sucaesfcful these services had been in doing a great amount of good in the large centres. Me Alderman Cooke read a short chapter, and Mr Woolley offered a prayer. The Pastor (the Rev T. E. Williams) gave an instructive address from the two words, Jesut only," which will long be remem- bered by those who heard it. The children's choir, under the conductorship of Mr W. Jenkins, rendered bright selections of music. Mr Fred Woolley (the or-qnigt) presided at the instrument. THE LATE MRS RICKARDS.-On Sunday evening, a funeral sermon to the memory of the 148 Mrs Rickards, a member of tho Wesleyan Society, was preached by the Rev Frederick Hunter, in th" Wesleyan Chapel. The choir was strer g hened by the addition of all old Voices connected with the Church in past times, and for the occasion it was under the leadership of Mr William Francis. Throughout the singing was excellent.. A trio, We shall sleep," was impressively rendered by Miss Turner, Mrs Tanner-Francis and Mr G. G. Trow, and at the conclusion of the service the Dead March in Saul was played by the organist, Mr D. W. Oliver.—On the same evening a memorial service in connection with the death of Mrs Richard W'lliams was held. The Rev Parry conducted the service, at the conclusion of which Mr C.
