The delicate white arch, robbed of its prismatic co!ouring, formtd a most interesting apeotacle, and a c'ro&t contract to the familiar solar iflumtnation?.

The uaual service was conducted by the Rector (the R. A. Fiahboume), and appropriate hymns were aung, and an excellent address delivered by the Rev. J.

THE NNW FLusaiNG ScHNMB.—Beadera will remember that at a meeting of the Newtown and Llanllwohaiarn Lc Oiti Board held a few weeka back, the Water Committee brought forward a new achome for nuahing the town's neweM hy means of a cart, which would not only be more effectual in its work, but advisable from an economical standpoint. It was accepted, and at a specie meeting permission was given for hiring a flushing cart to make experiments with a view to testing the praotibilityof the scheme. OnThmreday morning theae experiments were carried out in the presence of the commit ee appointed, Captain K. Pryce-Jones. Mesw. G. H. EHiaon, C. Morgan, H. Roberta. John Huarhea and Edward Jonea. The cart was filled and taken to the manhole at the top of the Green, into which it wai f, mpt ied. Several members of the committee were stationed at the manhol3 in New Road for the purpose of watch- ing the effects, and through which the water rubbed in a perfect volume, carrying with it sediment which had long been stationary. The manhole at the top of High-atreet was next viaited and the aamo reault waa observed to happen at the manhole in The Crffa. The water cart i< net only capable of being uaed for Suahing, but it is also adapted for watering the streeta, and ita abiUttea in thia !atte' respect were then tested in Broad S'reet. Thttt work wae enectua-liy carried out. The new cart covers a greater area, and it was found that the whole width of the road onuld be watered in two joumeyf, whereas the old cart could only complete 'he work in three toura. The committee wert thoroughly fatianed with the expefimonta made, and oo doabt will present a favourable report to thf Board. The body of the cart or tank is m"do t'f wrought iron pl&tea. rivtted together, and is capable -f holding 460 gallons of water. Thedimen<)ioaaof the 6)ltU)f holea is 1 foot 4 inches by 1 foot 1 inch. and the discharge valve is 8 h che". In addition, aa street watering otu't, it is capable of spreading a ahower of water nearty 20 feet. The time occupied 'n SJltjng the tank waa four-and.a-half minutes, while i. discharged itaelf in forty-nve seconda.

David Pugh, labourer, of Drummer'a HiU, Trefeglwya. waa charged with aaeauhingand beating David Roberta, labourer, of Welabpoo!.

SHROPSHIRE AND DISTRICT LEAGUE. NEWTOWN v. WELLINGTON ST. GEORGES. Tcfuns:—Newtown: Goal, A. Edwards; bMk9, A. Town- send and T. Worthinton; half-backs, E. Rees, T. Chapman, and H. Tucker: right wing, W. E. Pryce-Jones and A. Whalley; left wing, W. Parry and W. Morgan; centre, A. W. Pryce.Jones.—Wellington Goal. Haynes backs, E. Morris and A. Turley half-backs, T. Bates, Roden, and J. Pickering; right wing, J. Meeson and A. Pmkerton; left wing, A. Taylor and T. Jones; centre, Mr T. Mcllwraith Messrs H. Owen and F. Price. The visitin won the toss, and elected to kick down hill. and in addition to this disadTantage the homesters had tRe sun in their eyes and the wind them. On the signal being given for sta.rting, Newtown took the ball up the right wing, but a kick from Morris transferred the play to the other end of the field, where the play was confined for a few minuttes. W. E, Pryce-Jones got possession and centred, the ball passing to Parry, who dribbled tlw ball the Wellington but Morris again Pickerin- pMsed to Bould, and ran the ball past the Ctmtre line. Chapman stopped the rnsh, but Taylor got the leather and look'd like scoring, when Worthington charged snccess- fally. Hamb were given to Newtown immediately after- wards. but nothing came of the advantage owing to the anperb play of Meeson. A Insty cheer was raised t)s Morgan headed the ball over the bar from the foot of Worthington. From the kick-off Bould got possession and made a finc run, in which the \-i8itin left wing played a couspicnous part. Towniend was equtl to the occasion, and the ball to Parry. who with Morgan ran it down the field. A foul -,va s given Newtown, and placed the well, but again the h-Ane telTitory was ixivaded, Edwai-ds finding it necessary to use his hands. For some unaccountable reason the home side" ftinked" their and for fully five minutf's the goal was in jeopardy. Give and take play thf;n ecaaed, Whalley eventually kicking over. A corner to Newtown followed, and A. W. Pryce-Jones performed the 8I\me feltt. acivity then took plMo in the neighbourhood of the home pots. and an opportunity for scoring was missed by Taylor. A corner fell to the Dragons, but the ball was sent behind. On being re-etarted Mfsson got possession and centred, Bowld making a. splendid ahot. Edwards run ont, but be- fore he could return to his post, Pinkartcn, with unerring aim, caused a loud cheer to go up by sending it through the pdsts, after play. On the wki<;tle being founded Newtown carried the ball down the neid, and Parry kicked nver. We11inlfton next a corner. but resulted, handa being allowed to Newtown. No farther points wero made when the whistle blew for half.tilne. The ball on being restarted fonnd its way into Wellington Newtown, h%ving the I\<lvanta¡re of the wind, play- iug in their real form. Å scrimma¡re ensued in front of goal, Haynes nnding it necessary to clear with his hands. Tnrley then kicked tin ball up the Reld, Chu& man returned, ,tnd another scrimmtge ensued; and amig deaft-ning Newtown scored their first point. Flushed with success the home team played well for a time and pressed, Rees making a splendid ehot. A comer kick fell to Newtown, which Morgan just missed h' ading through. thi3 had to fist out, but Newtown, irrt-prMsihIe for the moment, returned to the attack, with the result that A. W. notched what proved to be the winninlf goal. From this point the homesters fell off both ili combilmtion and The Drllgons ex- harlllines from scoriiig, Taylor just missing thø vl goal. Even play followed, nutil the isitors gained a foul. Whalley got possession, and passed to his colleague, who made a good run. A free kick was given to Newtown, but placed the ball in a orchard. From the floal kick an exceptionally smart ran was made by Boald, Llinkerton, and the latter, however, failing at the critical moment. The Dragons immediately afterwards secured a free kick in front of goal, and followed with ob- taining corner, bnt neither were turned to ac- count. The attack was then transferred to the other side, and twice the ball was sent over the bar. In this way time was played ont, the scores ut the soand of the wmstte being' So fa.r as is known the following ia the result of the matches in the League ptayed:— matches in the Leagne played:- Mutches Gon.!s P.

CRICKET AVERAGES. WELSHPOOL. Considering the poor material Welshpool had to work from at the beginning' of the season, they have doae very well on the whole. they have played 14 matches, won 7. and lost 7. The A Team played two matches with GuHano!d, and lost both. The bowline of Hart is worthy of notice. In a season of hard wickets, and all in favour of the batsmen, to have captured 61 wickets for 307 runs is rather more than creditable, especially for a slow bowler. The lists are appended:— BATTING.
