LECTURES ON GARDENING AND AGRICULTURE. We are glad to learn that arrangements have been made for a course of ten popular lectures on Horticulture and Agriculture to be given at the Country School by Professor Howells, of Aberystwyth Univer- sity, admission free. The lecturer will deal with the nature and composition of soils, manures and fertilizers, the proper way of growing vegetaoiess and the cultivation of flowers. Each lecture will be followed by demonstrations in gardens close to the school, which will serve as object lessons on the subjects of the lectures. As a well-known. Horticulture Instructor says, the more general acquisition of knowledge of the nature indicated in lectures of this kind will naturally create a deeper and more intelligent interest in domestic gardening; village life must consequently become more enjoyable, homes be better sup- plied with wholesome food, and otherwise rendered attractive; and thus, in the aggregate, the nation will be beautified and enriched by the better educated heads and hands of the industrial populations of rural and sub- urban districts. V At the monthly Governors' meeting of the School held on Monday it was unanimously re- solved to appeal to the Urban District Uouncil and the Harbour Trustees for their co-operation to make the lectures a success and be an incitement to the Bar- mouth people to take an interest in domestic and flower garden- ing. As Alderman T. Martin Williams, J.P., remarked,—Our Urban Council ought to take special interest in this important matter, and he wished they would follow the example of the local authorities at Llandudno, Col- wyn Bay and other places where all nooks and corners are nicely arranged anti adorned with shrubs and flowers and at a very small cost. Barmouth could be made one of the most attractive holiday resorts in the kingdom. Another Governor said that it was in the power of the local .authorities and the inhabitants to make the place a paradise of beauty and sweetness. rPhe Goverporsgive a cordial invitation to,all who take an in- terest in gardening and farming to attend the lectures and de- monstrations. The first lecture will be given next Friday at 3-45 p.m. .——— V
