Obituary.—It is with great regret that we have to announce the death of Miss Edwards, of Tryweryn House, Marine Road, and late of the Royal Hotel, which took place on Monday morning last, at the age of 68 years. The late Miss Edwards was the only daughter of Capt. and Mrs Griffith Ed- wards. Miss Edwards came from an old and respected Barmouth family. She was of a quiet and genial disposition, and well-liked by all who came in con- tact with her. She had been ailing for some time and death ensued as stated. The lost oT her mother was a sad blow to her, and 'she really never was the same after. Her devotion to her mother and brothers during their long illness was beautiful to behold, she nursed them tenderly to the lasu. Miss Edwards was one of the oldest members of St. David's (Welsh) Church. The funeral, which will be a public one, will take place at Llanaber, to-day (Thursday). The funeral arrangements are in charge of Mr Richard Roberts, Ivy House.

Barmouth Library.—The quarterly meeting of the above Institution was held on Friday evening last, under the presidency of Mr W. O. Gale In the report of the Book Committee it was stated that a magnificent gift of 37 new books bad been presented to the Cir- culating Department by Mrs Keightley of Glanraawddacb. Through the ex- treme generosity of Mrs Keightley and other kind supporters of the Institution, not only are the tables of the Reading Room well supplied with periodicals and magazines, but the shelves of the Cir- culatingDepartment are kept up-to-date, this no doubt accounts for the increas- ing number of books circulated. A new volume was also received from Mr Tbeakstone of Llanaber, while a new Directory of North and South Wales was presented by the Publishers. Sir Edmund Buckley kindly presented a Map of the War, with small flags indi- cating the position of the opposing forces in the field. The Map is con- spicuously placed in the Reading Room, and much consulted by the members. The Secretary was instructed to convey a most hearty vote of thanks to all the donors. The report of the Finance Committee was submitted and con- sidered most satisfactory. The report showed an increase of C21 9s. 7d. balance in favour of the Institution as compared with the corresponding period of six months last year. The Secretary submitted his report for the quarter. Notwithstanding the drop that took place both in receipts and attendance on the outbreak of the war, the quarter's total showed an increase in all depart- ments. It was resolved that in future all the papers and periodicals purchased by the Committee should be equally divided between Mr Edward Davies, and Mr Rhys Jones, as both bad been mem- bers of the Institution from its first inception.
