4 THE VISITOR'S GUIDE TO BARMOUTH." It is always a commendable task in every true lover of Barmouth to advo- cate its claims as one of the most im- portant watering places on the delight- ful Welsh Coast. Those of us who reside in "Barmouth the Beautiful" with laudable pride consider it the best place to spend a holiday, and like the residents of rival watering places do all we can to urge its claims in and out of season. Mr J. Jones, The Library, is to be congratulated on the production of his Visitor's Guide to Barmouth." The Guide consists of 83 pages, which are divided into four parts, viz., Barniouth, its name, its historical and literary associations; "Barmoutb as it is"; "The chief walks and drives of the neighbourhood" The GeologyjBotany, Ornithology and Conchology of the dis- trict." The information, as Mr Jones tells us in his introduction, is reliable. It must have cost a great deal of labour e to glean all this information from right II sources. There is much new material in its pages which cannot but delight all readers and will doubtless create a desire to gain more knowledge of the town and district. It would be well for all our young people to read the splendid articles on Geology, Botany, Ornithology, and Conchology. The reading of these articles would open their eyes to the wonderful marvels of nature in our dis- trict. The Ornithology of Barmouth and district by Mr F. Coburn, Birmingham, who for the last thirty-five years has I visited Barmouth,is delightfully written and will not only give the reader infor- mation but create a desire to observe the beautiful feathered tribe that sings its sweet melody to us on our charming walks. Miss Florence G. Joijes, B.A., has, in happy vain, written the article on "The Flora of Barmouth." which will make our walks of greater interest than ever. Prof. Jones in eight pages gives us very valuable information of the geology of the district, and points out in the first page "The significant fact that many of the names by which the rocks of this age are known in whatever part of the world they are recognised are derived from this didtrict." Our respected feiiow-townsman, Mr J. J. Cotton, in two pages has shown to us what rich varieties of shells we have on our shores. I must not trepass any more in these columns to point out the other merits of the Guide. The many visitors to our town will be glad to read of the delights of our walks and many other interests and advantages we possess. But we cannot close without referring to the excellent maps which will be a great boon to all who love to wander at their own sweet will without making enquir- ies from anybody. The letter-press is clean, clear, and bold, and reflects the highesu credit upon the publisher. We heartily commend the Guide to all visitors, and indeed the privilaged resi- dents of our town and neighbourhood. WELL-WISHER. I
CORRESPONDENCE. I Ve do not hold ourselves responsible for the opinions of our correspondents. I THE FAIRY GLEN. I To the Editor. Dear Sir,— I was greatly disappointed when visi- ting your town this Eastertide to find the Fairy Glen closed. Whether from lack of enterprise on the part of the Barmouth Urban Dis- trict Council in planting trees I cannot say, but the fact remains that Barmouth is singularly lacking in shady walks within easy distance of the town. Unless the lodging house keepers and I tradespeople of Barmouth are particu- larly fortunate as compared with other seaside resorts, they must depend to some extent upon visitors for their in- come, and yet they apparently in com- mon with the rest of the ratepayers acquiesce in a line of action, which, if persisted in, will certainly drive away this portion of their livelihood. I have known this walk for consider. ably over twenty years, and speaking as a visitor it is strange that from Caer- narvonshire emanates the cry" Land for the people," whereas in Merioneth- shire the motto seems to be "Land from the people." Yours, etc., RUSSELL GREEN, M.B.,B.S. 5, Portland Road, (Lond.) Aldridge, Sbaff.

Unconscious Cyclist-While motor-. ing from Do I gel ley to Barmouth on Thursday night, Mr Vaughton (county surveyor) came across a young man, named R. R. Evans, of Argoed, Bala, a medical student at Liverpool, lying un- conscious on the roadside at the bottom of Aberamffra Hill. It appears that Mr Evans, who was spending his Easter holidays at home, was returning from Barmouth, and lost control of his bicycle while going down the hill. He collided with a wall at the bottom, and received serious injuries. Mr Vaughton brought him in Mr D. E. Davies' motor- car to Barmouth, where be was attended by Dr. Jones, Bryn, under whose care be is piogressing favourably.
