Davies at the Corwen Registry Office, the contracting parties being Mr. Thomas Williams, Penrallt, Glyndyfrdwy, and Miss Margaret Ann Lloyd, Queen Square, Corwen. The Rev. Canon Williams, Rector of Jeffreys- ton, Pembrokeshire, has been appointed Dean of St, Davids. The new dean is the brother of our late Rector at Corwen, tbe Rev. Griffith Williams, now of Llanrwst, It has been a matter of criticism that some deans' of St. David's have not teen Welshmen or Welsh-speaking Welshmen. No such critic- ism can now be made. Canon Williams is a thorough Wielshmaju; whole heartedly loyal to his race and his Chu«^and is an eloquent preacher. t liic h Yorr,?s, During last week-end Mr', 'tlu^h Morris, secretary of the National Eisteddfod of iWales, to be held at Corwen next August, received the following donations towards the eisteddfod: Lord Howard de Walden, F25 Sir Robert Mc A3 pin e and Sons (Birkenhead Water Works) 125 The National Provincial and Union Bank, 121 Mr. John Hinds, M.P., £ 10. The Lecture and Pennillion Singing by the Rev. T. Miles Jones, of Treuddyn, at Corwen Welsh Independent Chapel, on Wednesday ,night. was one of the best meetings of its kind ever held in this town. He held the large audience spell-bound for fully two hours with his clever pen ill ion singing in different styles. He worked hard and his lecture was most interesting, bright" and breezy. It is quite evident that what Mr. Jones dC8.3 not know about Welsh pennillion singing is not worth knowing, and we hope to hear him again at Corwen atlsDma future date. He also appealed to the National Eisteddfod Com- mittee to give a prominent place to the harpist and pennillion. singer on the platform at Cor- wen Eisteddfod. Miss Nancy Richards, the eminent Montgomeryshire Harpist, ably accompanied Mr. Jones on the harp. She also gave iieveral, selectibnt; on the harp which were greatly appreciated. Mr. Maurice Hughes, Tyisa, presided, and. besides giving an "eloquent addresa he did not forget -the cause. Beth am adgyfodiad Eisteddfod yPa; Anni- %awyr ?
