Hughes, son of Mr. Robt. Hughes, Briton Ferry, and brother of Mrs. B. Bureh, also of that town, has headed the poll in a Council eleotion at Welland, On- tario, out of sixteen candidates. Mr. Hughes, who is an alderman, was the candidate of the Labour party, and he polled (says the Welland Telegraph") a phenomenally large vote, and although there was no doubt of his election, the fact that he led all others was the cause of much comment. Previous to going to Canada about five years ago, Mr. Hughes lived at Llanelly, where he worked as a bricklayer at the Llanelly Steel Works, and in the short time he has resided in the new oountry, he has been wonderfully suo- cewful Mr. A. T. Williams, of Baglan House, Briton Ferry, writes a protest in "The Field against the influence of dog shows on gun dogs. He says that a noteworthy instance of its baneful effects is the Welsh spaniel. When first shown at Birming- ham in 1899, as a specimen of a apanieil tdsati could do a bard day's work, the Welsh spaniel wae untainted by shows, and was purely a working dog. Most unfortunately, he waa afterwards taken up by purely fancy, exhibitors, who neither break nor work their dogs, with the natural result that the breed has been nearly spoilt. I say 'nearly' because there is, mofJb fortunately, still gome of the untainted blood left.'? The Riev. H. O. Mander was the apwjbw at Swansea Y.M.C.A. Brotherhood on Son- day afternoon, and about 250 men came to hear his message. Mr. Gwilym Morgan, J.P., presided, and during the course of the afternoon's meeting Mr. W.

The lecturer ably described, from his personal researches, many of the special features of the rocks of our renowned limestone dis- trict, which are not obvious in a general admiration, unless pointed out. In such a stately mass, he said, as our Gower Peninsula, a very large number of interest- ing details present themselves. Many thousands visit our "pleasure ground,' attracted by the massive grandeur of its rock formations, and many a distinguished scientist has journeyed far to learn of their specific details.-The lecture was illustrated by lantern slides, which the lecturer (Mr. Bryn George) and Mr. H. f. Griffiths had prepared after scaling the cliffs and ex- ploring the caves. One in particular, of thf, stalactitic formations of a Gpw«r cava, taken by flashlight, was very beautiful
