^MOTHERS' LNION.—The second meeting was held NEWTOWN. I at All Saints' on Monday, wbeu the president, Mrs Evan-Jones, Llanllwchaiarn Vicarage, enrolled 23 new members. NEWTOWN SHEBP AND PIG FAIR.—There was a very large number of sheep on offer at this fair on Monday but the prices were lower than the corre- sponding period last year, still a firmer tone prt- (vailed and wethers were in demand. Pigs sold freely, and cart pigs were eagerly bought up at 18s to 25s each. Porks realised 5d to 6d per lb. NEWTOWN HORSE AND CATTLE FAIR.—A very large attendance of would-be sellers, with stock in good condition, but the dealers were not present. The few animals that were sold were at ridiculously low prices, and the greater portion were taken home again. The demand for horses showed a great falling off, and low prices prevailed. Altogether the fair is said to have been oue of the worst for very many years. BOWLING.-We are pleased to hear that Mr P. W. Joues, proprietor of the Bear Hotel, intends convert- ing the garden adjoining his premiees into a bowling green. The spacs at h:s disposal will permit a green o be made of about 50 yards by 30. The increasing favour in which bowling has been held in the towu If la e leads to the belief that an excellent club may be formed. Operations will be commenced forthwith, so that the ground wilt be ready for play in tht spring. THE PARISH CHURCH —Tbe curate, the Rev. F. M. Hamilton, lia-i been appointed senior curat at Wrexham, and will probibiy commence his duties there in December.

On VWdnesoay l»sr, however, it was decided that the Rector engage one at the same stipend as hitherto paid.
