Pryce-Jones with a handsome gold medal, suitably inscribed. Mr Pryce-Jones has been the captain of the R.W.W. team for many years, but last season he was unfortunately prevented from participat- ing in the games, and Mr Rees proved a worthy substitute. Mr W. Owen has also received a pre- sent for the best bowling average. SEPARATION ORDER SEQUEL.—William Bevan appeared at the Police Court, on Tuesday, charged by his wife with the non-payment of contributions on a separation order. Mrs Bevan produced the order and informed the Bench that the arrears amounted to X6 15a 6d, up to July 5th last. Prisoner pleaded that he was only a labourer and when in Newtown he had 17s lOd for 564 hours. There was no bricklayer in Newtown that could earn 10s a week for 52 weeks in the year. By the time he kept himself and had a few clothes it was impossible for him to pay 10s a week. He had done his best. He had no chance to pay until the warrant was issued for his arrest.—P.S. Morgans stated that the defend- ant got to know in July last that a warrant was to be issued and he absconded. He had spent some time in Herefordshire, hop-picking and tramping about.

Roberts, Miss Kisielowski, Mr Stuart Humphreys, Cambrian Quartette Party, Mr W. Jenkins, and Miss Connie Whittaker. The accompaniments were played by Mrs Astley and Mr G. H. Bell. Refreshments were handed round at an interval and much enjoyed. Encores were numerous, and some of the artestes excelled themselves. Special mention should be made of Master Leslie Bevan's piano- forte solo, which for one so young was splendidly executed, and did great credit to his tutor (Mr G. H. Bell). The Pastor moved the customary vote of thanks, and the singing of Land of my Fathers' brought a splendid and enjoyable evening to a close.

WELSH AMATEUR Cup.-The p,.W.W. have qualified themselves for the next round of the Welsh Amateur Cup by defeating Llanidloes at Newtown on Saturday. The homesters had the best of the game throughout and won comfortably by three goals to nil. Most unsportsmanlike behaviour was subsequently witnessed amongst certain of the spectators, one of the Warehouse players being molested in a disgraceful manner. P S.E.—The first of the winter series of P.S.E.'s was held at the Public Hall on Sunday evening, when Mr Wm. Spence presided over a crowded gathering. So packed was the hall, in fact, that many were unable to obtain admission. An address was delivered by the Rev. R.* W. Green (Wesleyan minister), and solos were rendered by Miss Cassie Roberts and Mr Evan Hughes, Tregynon, and Miss Kisielowski, a young lady who is visiting Newtown.

The Council resolved to postpone repairs until the spring.—The half-year precept was fixed at a half-penny on houses and a farthing on land.—A letter was read asking the Council if they re- quired agricultural lectures.

THE children and their parents feel greatly indebted to Mrs Richards, Tyhwntirafon, for the excellent tea she so generously gave to the Band of Hope members at the opening of the winter session. A large number of children attended the tea and the meeting which was afterwards held, when the Revs T. Bowen Evans and J. Williams, B.A., delivered appropriate addresses, and the children, under the leadership of their energetic captains, Miss A. Jones, Tynewydn, Miss Hannah Morgan, and Miss E. Parry, gave an excellent entertainment. The following ladies also assisted at the tea tables: Mrs Swancott, Mrs Lloyd, Liverpool House, Mrs Davies, Dolafon, Mrs Williams, The School, Mrs Hughes, Penybont, and Miss M. Lewis, Pentre. A MEETING of the school managers was held on Saturday, when the following members were present: Messrs D. Hamer, Tymawr (chairman), Rev J. Williams, B.A., John Breese, F.V. Ashton, Simon Jones, and R. W. Davies. The minutes of the previous meeting having been read and con- firmed, the correspondent reported that the instructions of the District Committee with regard to the cleaning of the school had been carried out. A letter from the caretaker asking for firewood, coal scuttle, and varnish for stoves was read and approved. The head master reported that the new desks had arrived, and were a great improvement, and he desired to know what he was to do with the old desks. The matter was referred to the Executive Committee. The head master, at the request of the managers, agreed to arrange a children's concert and distribution of prizes about Christmas, and it was decided to call a meeting of managers to arrange same.

A report was submitted by Rev W. S. Howlett, and the Rev W. Burnett gave an address on the Work in Africa." The previous Sunday the Home and Foreign Missionary anniversary took place. Altogether about.27 15s was collected. THAT this meeting, representing all sections of tha licensed trade of the district, records its solemn protest against the introduction of any licensing legislation in the present Parliament reversing the Act of 1904, advocating a time limit, local veto, Sunday closing, higher licence duties, upon which no popular mandate to the Government has been given." This resolution was passed at a recent meeting of the committee of the Welshpool and District Licensed Vic- tuallers' Association. A copy is to be sent to the Licensed Victuallers' Defence Association. A.S.R.S.—A special meeting of the Welshpool branch of the A.S.R.S. was held in the Templar Hall on Sunday afternoon, when an enthusiastic audience was addressed by Mr D. Townsend, Shrewsbury, secretary of the I.L.P., on Trades Unionism and the National All Grades Move- ment." The Secretary (Mr A. Ballinger), who presided, also spoke on the subject, and the Taff Vale dispute, etc. So successful was the meeting that Mr Townsend intends to again address the members at an early date. Six new members were enrolled, and applications made for four membership forms. The usual votes of thanks were accorded. We are given to understand that 95 per cent. of the members have pledged them- selves to stand by Mr Bell and the Executive Committee upon the question of recognition, whilst the majority of the remainder intend to be neutral. GARDENING FOR SCHOOL CHILDREN.—Mr Tole, headmaster of the Welshpool National School, has obtained the sanction of the County Educa- tion Committee to] rent a garden at Oldford, for the purpose of giving demonstrations in gardening to the school boys. The scheme, as detailed by Mr Tole, is an admirable one, and should prove most beneficial to the pupils. The scholars will be taken to the garden, which is situated near the School, in batches of fourteen. The garden will be divided into plots, and two boys allotted to each plot. Mr and Mrs Tole intend giving demonstrations in sowing, planting, etc., after which the scholars will carry out the instructions at their respective plots. The boys will also be taught how to bud rose trees, graft, and cultivate a garden generally. The necessary garden requisites are to be provided by the County Education Authority. An interested community will keenly follow the pupils' progress.
LLANFAIR-CAEREINION. AT the Petty Sessions on Saturday P.S. Davies charged Joseph Thomas, Watergate-street, with being drunk at Llanfair. Defendant, who ad- mitted the offence, was fined 10s, including costs. SPECIAL MISSION.-The Baptist Church held special mission services throughout the week, when the Rev R. B. Jones, Ynyshir, South Wales, preached. The chapel was crowded, every even- ing each service being preceded by a prayer meet- ing. The rev gentleman preached on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday evening, and in English on Wednesday afternoon, His sermons were quite unique, being characterised by extreme earnestness and unction. The interest and intensity of feeling increased night after night, the last service, in spite of the heavy downfall of rain, being the most largely attended. Much good must follow in all the churches as a result of the mission, the keynote of which was I am crucified with Christ."
THE MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. There will be only one municipal contest in the county next month, viz., in the Buttington Ward of Welshpool. At Welshpool Messrs Stockton, Jenkins, W. A. Rogers, and Dr Marston have been returned unopposed. In the Buttington division Mr Pugh's return is baing opposed by Mr E. H. Jones, Pool Quay. At Llanfyllin the following gentlemen were nominated for the four seats: Mr Humphrey Ellis, proposed by Mr Robert Henry Jones, seconded by Mr Chas. P. Owen; Mr Joseph Roberts, proposed by Mr Evan Evans, seconded by Mr R. M. Lewis (retiring members); Mr E. Hawke Dawe, proposed by Mr William Jones, seconded by Mr Ellis Roberts; D. R. Lewis, proposed by Mr Ellis Roberts, seconded by Mr William Jones. For the mayoralty the names of Messrs Robert Henry Jones and W. Arthur Pughe have been put forward. At Montgomery both the retiring members of the Town Council, Messrs C. P. Davies and C. B. Williams, have been re-elected unopposed. Mr Davies's papers were signed by Mr J. Tipping as proposer, and Mr M. Owen as seconder, and Mr Williams' by Mr F. Langford as proposer, and Miss Margaret Bryan as seconder. At Llanidloes there is in most quarters un- feigned regret at the retirement of two such veterans as Messrs Hamer and Mills. The civic body has, fortunately, not got before it the critical period which it had three years ago when the water scheme was about to be capitalized. Mr Edward Hamer virtually carried that scheme on his back until it reaehod a triumphant issue, and all ratepayers in the borough will remember the manner in which he met all objections at the Local Government Board inquiry. Mr Hamer says that from some quarters there is a cry for new blood; he is quite willing to duff his armour and let others try in his place. Mr John Mills who has, without any ostentation in debate, done an immense amount of excellent work in the Council Chamber and also in committee. As one of the largest employers of labour, and as a highly successful man of business his services will be missed. Mr Jonos Meredith, of course, returns to the Council with a record of useful work already to his credit. Mr Meredith is not a fluent speaker, but he is a practical man, and can always make a suitable suggestion when required. It is mainly through Mr Meredith's knowledge of sanitary engineering that the Council have been able to dispense with a paid surveyor and sanitary inspector, thus saving at least X80 in the rates every year. The electors who voted for Mr Richard Jerman three years back have not had any reason to regret their choice.
MACHYNLLETH. A HORSK and cattle fair was held on Monday. Trade was fairly brisk, the best quality stock realizing excellent prices. A NOTED BARD.—The Rev D. Cunllo Davies presided at the Maengwyn Literary Society on Monday evening, when Mr Rd. Rees, J.P., read an admirable paper on Rev W. Thomas (Islwyn). FREE CHURCH COUNCIL.—This Council com- menced its winter work last week, when two united prayer meetings were held, one in Welsh at the Wesleyan Chapel, and the other in English at the English Presbyterian Chapel. The presidents were the Rev Evan Isaac and Mr T. R. Morgan respectively. AN EXEMPLARY PUNISHMENT.—Wm. Williams, labourer, Doll-street, was charged before Mr Rd. Rees and Dr W. R. Williams, on Tuesday, with having been drunk and disorderly the previous evening. Evidence was given by P.S. Owen and P.C. Humphreys, Llanbrynmair, and the Bench imposed a fine of 40s and costs, or in default one month's imprisonment. Defendant was con- veyed to Shrewsbury. NURSING ASSOCIATION.-The annual meeting took place on Friday evening at the Town Hall, presided over by Lord Herbert Vane-Tempest, and was well attended. His lordship was sup- ported on the platform by numerous local people. All the officials were re-elected. Great praise was given to the good work done by the District Nurse. It was stated that upwards of X96 had been given in local subscriptions, and that it was the 5th year in which the local association had been inaugurated. ACCIDENT -On Saturday evening a very serious event occurred at the residence of Mr Edward Jones, of London House, when one of his children, who was leaning over the bannister, accidentally slipped over and fell a great distance on his head. Dr. Williams was called in, and although the child is still unconscious, hopes are enter- tained of his recovery. The ehild became con- scious on Sunday morning for the first time, and after uttering the word mother relapsed again into anlunconscious state. Much sympathy is felt for Mr and Mrs Jones and the family. DOVEY CLUB,—On Thursday evening last a banquet was given by Lord Henry Vane Tempest and the chairman and officials of the Dovey Club, at the Wynnstay Hotel, when the farmers occu- pying lands adjoining the River Dovey and mem- bers of the club and supporters were invited. Amongst others the following accepted invita- tions :—Messrs. D Davies, M.P., H E Morritt, R C Anwyl, R H Buckworth, Dr. A 0 Davies, Dr. T Davies, J G Jenkins, R Gillart, E Gillart, D E K Griffiths, Major H E Bonsall, J E Las- celles, H Lewis, J R Leighton, G Pryce, and others. There were in all about 96 present, and a very enjoyable evening was spent. The toasts of the evening were The President" and The Club," and they were well received. Mr Lloyd Roberts played selections on the harp. 18s. FOR A CYCLE. —Humphrey Thomas Roberts, said to be a native of Blaenau Festinioe, was locked up by P.C. Williams on suspicion of stealing a bicycle. He was brought up in cus- tody on Wednesday before Dr W. R. Williams, when the officer narrated how he saw a youth offering a bicycle for sale in the town for 18s. The boy told him that the bicycle belonged to Roberts, and the constable then questioned Roberts as to where he had had the cycle from. He told him it was his own, but in view of the fact that he was endeavouring to sell it for the small sum of 18s, the officer locked him up on suspicion. The Blaenau Festiniog police were communicated with, and it was ascertained that Roberts's statement was correct, and his parents were anxious for him to return home. Roberts was consequently discharged. AT the Fishery Board Meeting a good deal was heard of poaching and pollution, and dead fish that had been killed by dynamite. A state- ment was presented showing that the following sums had been paid in for licences: Dolgelley district (Mr E. A. Oliver), X5 2s. 6d.; Mach- ynlleth district (Dr. Kershaw), X5 2s.; Port- madoc district (Capt. D. Richards), X5 3s.-The Chairman observed that the revenue from licences seemed te be falling off in the Dovey.—Mr Rowland said the policy of the Board was a positive discouragement.—Mr R. Rees remem- bered the time when .£55 was received in the Dovey district. The price was too high. The Board would receive more revenue by granting licences for X2 10s. than at £ 5.—Mr Osmond Williams said the figures proved that the revenue was decreasing.—The Chairman thought the shilling trout licence was the Board's salvation. He deplored the lack of netting.—Mr Crick gave notice of motion to discuss the matter at the next meeting.—Mr Richard Rees stated that the Dovey district had only about .£16 in hand to pay their keepers. They would, therefore, be short of about two months' salaries.—Permission was given to overdraw the amount on the Board until the revenue was due in January.
LLANWNOG. THE thanksgiving services of the Zion Congre- gational Church were held last week. Society in the morning, prayer meeting in the afternoon, and in the evening the Rev W. Roberts, Llanid- loes, delivered a powerful sermon. Miss Jones, Gwernypwll accompanied the hymns.
MONTGOMERY THE collections at the harvest thanksgiving services (Friday and Sunday) realised £ 14 7s 6d. FOOTBALL DANCE.—The annual dance in con- nection with this club was held in the Town Hall on Thursday, and proved a very great success. The hall had been very prettily decorated by lady friends, and the refreshments were all kindly given by the ladies of the neighbourhood. The band of Mr Charles Genna, L.R.A.M., Shrewsbury, provided excellent and up-to-date music, including the new waltz The Merry Widow." There was a large company present, and dancing was kept up very briskly until after 3-30. The M.C.'s of the dance were Messrs J. E. Tomley, J. J. Powell, R. Rogers, J. A. Withers. Great credit is due to Mr C. Davies Jones, the hon. sec. of the club, for the admirable way in which all the arrangements were carried out. FOOTBALL.—On Saturday, Montgomery crossed the border to meet their strong opponents Bishop's Castle in a friendly encounter. They found the home team at full strength whilst they had but a poor team on, included in the team being two or three young hands. About ten minutes after the start Southern opened the scoring with a miserable shot which Roberts ought easily to have saved. Half-time, Bishop's Castle 1, Montgomery 0. From the re-start the visitors were by far the superior team, and Harris equalised early on. For handling in the 18 yards area the Castleites were awarded a penalty which Roberts cleverly saved. A very pleasant game ended in a draw cf one goal each.
LLANDINAM. WE REGRET to receive news of the death of Mr J. V. Hulme, which occurred at his home on the 15th inst. The deceased was an enthusiastic member of the local cricket club, and was well- known in the district, being a son-in-law of Mr and Mrs R. Price, Qf Upper Ffinant. As one in- terested in, and being an authority on cotton and calico printing, he presented a treatise (framed) to the Village Hall on the various developments and stages in the manufacture of cotton. He was but 49 years of age and was greatly respected by all who came in contact with him. The following is taken from the Accrineton Gazette' of October 19th:—Much regret will be felt in Church at the death of Mr James Valentine Hulme, which occurred on Tuesday morning at Didsbury, near Manchester, where he was held in high esteem and regard. Deceased, when peresided in Church, was very popular. He had been suffering from appendicitis, and about a fortnight ago, was operated upon. Born in Church, he always had a warm spot in his heart for the township, notwith- standing the fact that he had lived in Didsbury for about 20 years. He began work at Messrs Stoiner's Church Works. After a few years, how- ever, he went to work at Messrs Haworth and Priestley's, Coppy Clough chemical works, where he remained about three years. Being of an inventive turn of mind, the deceased some years ago patented an invention in connection with calico printing machines, which was so successful that his future was assured. When he lived in ^hurch he was a regular attender at Church Kirk Sunday School, and the Church Cricket Club did not possess a more enthusiastic supporter. He was always present at the Derby" matches. He has also played with the Didsbury cricket eleven many times. He leaves a widow and seven children to mourn his loss. Deceased had eleven children, but four of them died and were buried in Church Kirk graveyard, where a beautiful monument was erected over their remains. The funeral took place yesterday afternoon, the I obsequies being of a very impressive and affecting character. The remains were interred in the grave where deceased's children rest.

Llanidloes Men and the Rail- way Dispute. Sir-In your last issue I note a paragraph taken from a daily paper which says there are 54 mem- bers of the Llanidloes Branch of the A.S.R.S. who are in favour of a strike. This is not so, in fact no one knows how many are in favour of a strike until the ballot papers are counted, and that does not take place until the 28th inst. There are 54 members in the Llanidloes Branch. Thanking you for the insertion of this in your next issue.— Yours faithfully, ONE WHO KNOWS. Llanidloes, Oct. 24th, 1907. [The daily paper in question is responsible for the statement.—ED.]
Gregynog Show. Sir,—As one of the stewards of the tug-of-war at this show my attention has been called to a. I letter which appeared in your issue of October Jet under above heading, and over the nom-de- plume of Fair Play," in which the writer asks why the result of the tug-of-war was omitted from the report of the sports held at Gregynog Show which appeared in your issue of September 10th. I leave this part of his letter to be answered by you, but with respect to his assertion that the contest lay between Cambrian Workmen and Bettws Lightweights, this is utterly untrue, because Bettws Lightweights did not compete. The team over which Cambrian Workmen obtained a victory called themselves Six Neighbours," amongst which- team was only of the famed Bettws Lightweights." I cannot understand why "Fair Play," who appears to be so much interested in this event, did not honour the show with his presence, and thus have been able to ascertain for himself the result of the contest, and so saved himself the trouble of rushing into print and stating what is untrue as the result of being led away by inaccurate and misleading information. May I also suggest to Fair Play" that it would be more manly to sign his name to the letters he sends to the Press instead of seeking to hide his identity under a nom-de-plume. Is he afraid of the light ? I am given to understand there is to be an open Tug-of-war contest at Berriew, at Glansevern rejoicings. If this is true the gallant little Lightweights will be very pleased to meet the Cambrian Workmen team then.—Yours respectfully, Bryn, Bettws. R. A. SWETTENHAM.
Hedges that Should be Cut. Sir,—In the course of my rural perambulations I observe skirting our main roads and highways many tall, rambling hedges that ought to be cut. Their over-hanging growth keeps the roads in a bad state, and certainly before the winter sets in the owners should be required to attend to them. Otherwise in the springtime just when buds are bursting and we are delightfully prospecting lovely stretches of vernal greenery, we may witness the farm hands slashing tue stems of what will be ugly black stuuips far into the summer. At this season of the year hedge-cutting should be made compulsory, but 'twere vain perhaps to appeal for such an injunction from rural authorities, largely consisting of farmers, who as a class detest nothing more heartily than the assertion of corporate authority in the realm of husbandry. Yet I make the appeal to them as ratepayers. The expenditure upon our public roads is great, and if the condition of these roads is affected by high hedges it is surely their duty and their interest to act.—Yours, etc., ROADSTER.
Llanwrin School. Sir,—Your paper, as well as several others, make much of the Education Committee's report regarding Llanwrin Non-Provided School and the report of the Surveyor regarding the same. It includes, among others, viz., a supply of drinking and washing water in a suitable water cistern on the premises, with taps and lavatories, etc. The washing water is provided; as to the drinking' water, where are the managers to get it? We want a little common sense and fair play even in a country place. The only drinkable water in the place runs into a cistern about a yard square, and in a dry summer it hardly fills it up. The children have access to it, and, besides, more than half the children live within 400 yards of the school. The Llanwrin folk are also noted for their kindness to the school children; each and all of them get their mid-day meal in the cottages, hot water for tea, etc. Where on earth does the need for water come in is more than I can under- stand. Last week the school had the banner for the best attendance, which shows that the children, as well as the parents, take an interest in the school. Mr W. Jones knows right well that to provide drinking water as required is a matter of impossibility, unless, indeed, we tapped Machynlleth's supply, about a mile away. Per- haps even he weuld pause before going to that expense. The number on the books is only 31. I take it that the county authority will hesitate before going to such recklessness. The school, to my knowledge, is going grand, and it is a pity that narrow-minded folks bear any grudge towards it just because it is a non-provided school. MAURICE RYDER.
LLANDYSSIL. THE COSTLY BROOK."—On Saturday, at 3 p.m., a deputation from the Forden Rural District Council, consisting of Mr Gregory (the chairman), Mr Hurlbutt, Major Corbett Winder, Mr Jones, Pentre, and Mr Jchn Davies, visited the Village to inspect the brook and the roads. The filled-up state of the brook through the village (which has been improved immensely during the past fort- night by Mr Hole) and the shameful state of the brook in Mr Price's field, and shocking state of the flood gates, were all noticed by the deputation. A meeting was afterwards held in the Schoolroom at which owners, parish councillors, and others were present. The matter was well discussed, and the deputation will present their report at the next meeting of the Board.
October Stock Sale at Caersws. There was a splendid show of stock in Messrs Morris, Marshall, and Poole's auction yard at Caersws on Friday last, upwards of 250 fat and store cattle, 700 sheep. and 54 pigs being passed under the hammer. The entries of cattle com- prised 87 fat and 170 stores, including 23 good cows and calves and in calvers. Mr Marshall opened the sale with the fat cattle, and great interest was aroused in 15 ripe cattle sent by Mr Edward Jones, Trewythen, seven bullocks making up to £ 20, and eight heifers up to .£18. Six cows and heifers from Mr E. W. Savage, Glandulas, realized from X12 15s to X14. Twelve from W. and E. Phillips, Carnedd, bullocks up to £ 1510s. Cows and calves followed, most of them going to Mr Chester, Wednesfield, and a few to local buyers. The stores included several well-bred bunches of fresh two and three year old bullocks and heifers, and many useful lots of yearlings and 1 year olds. Twenty from Mr Tudor, Rhydycarw, making X12 17s 6d and X12 7s 6d; Mr Davies, Dolhafren, 10 at.Z12; Mr Weaver, Church House, 4 at X15, very satisfactory prices being realised in nearly every case. The largest consignments were supplied by Messrs Bennett Owen, Gwern- afon; Davies, Dolhafren; Davies, Bodiach; Roberts, Penrhoa; Edwards, Talgarth; Hughes, The Park; Jones, Neuaddnewydd; Davies, Gwerne; Reynolds, Groftydd; Davies, Cyff iau, etc. The following were some of the plincipal buyers: Shuker, Burton-on-Trent; W. Jones, Caersws; R. W. Davies, Shrewsbury; Lewis Jones, Newtown; Jebb, Shrewsbury; Saint, Oswestry; W. P. Hole, Crowthers Hall; Henry Jones, Shrewsbury; D. Rogers, Grove; Francis, Leighton; Bromley, Llanymynech; Dr John Stanton Lacy Evans, Minsterley; Meddins, Red House; Kmsey, Winsbury. The demand for sheep and lambs was not so keen as at the pre- vious sale, but nevertheless a large number changed hands at satisfactory prices.
I The New School for Aber- hafesp. Sir,—The Managers of the Aberhafeap C.E. School have seen with very great surprise that the Local Education Authority propose building a new school for Aberhafesp. Not having had any official intimation of the matter at all, the Managers have been waiting for some time to see whether there was any necessity for a classroom as mentioned in the Surveyor's report, and now find as they expected that there is not, the attendance having decreased very considerably. In 1903 there were on the books 80, with an average attendance of 67. For the year ending September 30th, 1907, the numbers were on the books 54, with an average attendance of 44, and the numbers are steadily decreasing. The Managers have same time acquired an additional piece of land, and instructions have been given for the erection of new offices, and all the other requirements of the County Surveyor's report are being carried out with the exception of the class- room which has been already mentioned as not being necessary. The Managers are very pleased to find that the attendance at the school is the best in the whole district, which is in a great measure owing to the central position of the school.— Yours, etc.. W. T. WILSON, Correspondent. Correspondent.
Newtown Free Gift Society. Sir,—In the report of the jubilee dinner of this Society, appearing in your last issue, the follow- ing statement, made by the Secretary, appears:— He believed, of all the benefit societies who were registered, they were only worth about XI a man, whereas they, who were not registered, were worth, if they reckoned up, over £ 1 a man." I hesitate to criticise the utterances of a fellow- worker in the Friendly Society cause, or to make disparaging comparisons amongst kindred societies, but this statement is so erroneous and misleading that, on behalf of the registered societies, I should like to ask Mr W. O. T. Jones to substantiate his statement, above quoted, or, if he cannot do so, then to withdraw it, with equal publicity, in fair- ness to those societies against whom his remarks were directed. For Mr Jones' guidance, let me add that all the benefit societies registered have, in the last official summary I have at hand, nearly 16 million members and 140 millions in funds. This repre- sents about X8 15s per member. What are the corresponding figures for the unregistered societies ?—Yours faithfully, J. E. TOMLEY. Montgomery, 26th October, 1907.
The loss which Scottish agriculturists have sus- tained in the destruction of their grain crops by the incessant October rainfall is estimated at nearly two and a half million pounds. This figure is based on the total acreage, which is 1,209,924, the damage being computed as falling not far short of X2 per acre. The damage wrought by the rainfall was greater than in 1855 and 1903.

The Trefeglwys Perjury Case. A regrettable printer's error occurred in the report of the above case which appeared in a portion of our last week's issue, which error was, fortunately, detected before the bulk of our copies were published. The name of Miss "Worrall" was, unfortunately, introduced into the report of Morrell's evidence concerning his domestic life. Of course, it was Miss Morrell's name that was intended, and we do not think that anyone reading the report would fail to detect this obvious mistake. We need not state how deeply we deplore the mistake, andherewith express our unfeigned regret, and tender to Miss Worrall our sincere apology for having unintentionally caused her any annoyance and unpleasantness.
