ARGENTINE HORSES. We have received information from Messrs' Frank Lloyd & Sons, the well-known horse auctioneers of Wrexham and Crewe, that they have recently had a communication from Mr. Harry Blunt stating that he is now on his way to England with a consignment of 200 heavy cart horses and SO ride and drive horses from the Argentine. Mr. Blunt* it will be remembered, successfully managed the Tatton shire stud for the late Earl Egerton of Tatton until its memorable dispersal in 1909i when the shire stallion "Tatton Dray King" was sold at the record price of 3,700 guineas. Since that time Mr. BInnt has had the management of the Ianquilco Rata neia. one of the largest ranches of its kind in Argentine, many championships and premier honours at the leading shows having been awarded to animals under his care and supervision. Mr. Blunt also states that he has personally selected every animal that he is bringing over and it will be a splendid opportunity for farmers to fill up their stables. He also hopes to return at an eary date with a odtesignment of English pure bred animals f different breeds for use 81i the eatanoia. <

1II TIPYN O BOB PETH 1
II TIPYN O BOB PETH. » 1 ?WZ DO NO" HtONMARILT IDR?T JY OURfBLVW WIT i j WS» eHNIOra OF IUE OOBBFSPON EMf], j A movement has been started at Corwen with a view to amalgamating the Edeyrnion and Llangollen Agricultural Societies and to hold a show alternately at the two towns. A similar move was mooted several years ago, when a deputation from Llangollen attended at the annual meeting of the Corwen, Society and made certain overtures which, however, -came to nothing, Whether this new effort will he more successful remains to be seen; but the present year, when the promoters of so many other events are "marking time," would appear very suitable for making the experiment. Considerable push, energy and other kinds of support will be needed to make the show successful; and the combined exertions of the two Societies may well be devoted to this end. Is there any section of the community that is not affected, in some way or other, by the War 1 The answer to this question will, as a rule, be in the negative; but there is an ex- ception. On Fair-Day, a farmsr, who occu- pies a small holding, within a few miles of the town, and who, with his wife, had come to Llangollen to sell pigs and poultry, informed me that he is in nowise prejudiced by the rise in prices. He has sufficient corn and roots of his own growing in his storehouse to last until the next harvest is ingathered; the price of coal does not trouble him because he burns wood; and the rise in prices generally is all to his advantage. His only fear is lest the threatened Germans blockade should prove sufficiently effective to compel the Government to commandeer all the corn in the country and to regulate the output. They have done this already in Germany and we have the British Fleet to thank that the pinch is not keener in this country. The Department of Agriculture of the University College forwards a second circular in which, a$a result of experiments made under the supervision of experts, the merits of various varieties of potatoes are discussed. The information contained in these pamphlets which, issued periodically, deal with almost every phase of agriculture, is practically in- valuable to farmers; and I have been think- ing How are they circulated?" and What means are adopted in order to bring them into the hands of those likely to benefit most con- siderably by studying them ?" It is certainly a great pity-a most regrettable waste of skilled energy-if the results of researches made by the Bangor experts are not scattered over the widest possible area, even if a small portion does not fall upon productive ground. But to return to our potatoes. From tabu- lated results of experiments made with eight approved varieties of the tuber, I find that the best all-round results bkve been achieved with "Arran Chief," at Colomehdy, Denbigh, the average weight of potatoes per acre being over seventeen ton whilst, at Rhospengwern, Llan- gollen, from the same variety, only twelve tons eleven cwts. were obtained. At Colomen- dy, it may be pointed out, the soil is heavy loam on clay subsoil, the previous crop was wheat, and the manure used, per acre, was 20 tons farmyard manure, 3 cwt. superphos- phate and Ii cwt. kanit. At Rhospengwern the soil is light loam, the previous crop, oats preceded by oats, and the field was manured in the rows with farmyard manure at the rate of twenty tons per acre together with four cwts. of superphosphate per acre. Good old kanit The Rev. L. D. Jenkins, Vicar of Abergele, who is accompanied by Mrs. Jenkins, is pay- ing a short visit to Llangollen this week-end; and the warm-hearted greetings they have received on all hands demonstrate how large is the place they made for themselves in the hearts of the people during their residence amongst us. As previously stated Abergele owes much to Llangollen now that both its spiritual and its temporal affairs are controlled by those who have gone to the Seaside from the Deeside. On Wednesday night Mr. Jenkins delivered a most interesting address to the members of the St. Collen's Literary Society, an organization he was chiefly instru- mental in calling into existence, discoursing upon quaint old customs associated with the observance of the various seasons of the ecclesiastical year. The lecturer was quite at his best and interesting contributions to the discussion that followed were made by Mr. H. R. Olley, B.A., Mr. Mossop, Mr. Marwood and Mr. W. Evans. To the Churchpeople of Llangollen generally the coming amongst them of the Vicar and: his good lady must revive bright and happy memories. To Mr. Jenkins we are sure it is a delight to see Church- work still making steady progress on an even keel; to the Churchpeople of Llangollen it is a source of unbounded pleasure to meet their late Vicar and Mrs. Jenkins, in vigorous health, looking hopefully forward to the bright future which we all anticipate when the war drums throb no longer." There is, at present, no precise information available as to what line of action is to be adopted so far as holding the National and many of the chief provincial Eisteddfodau this year, but the general impression is that, sub- ject to certain conditions, arrangements will proceed as usual. The authorities at Penllyn Chapel are making arrangements for a com- petitive meeting, in connection- with that place, of worship, which will be held on Thursday, March 4th and, although it will not be on quite the same scale as that usually arranged for New Year's Day, the list of sub- jects indicates that it will prove a very inter- esting meeting. In the vocal department prizes will be offered for singing by parties of eight, quartettes, duetts and solos; and Messrs. Hughes & Son, Llangollen, are offering a gold-centred medal for the conductor of the best children's choir. In the literary section there are several topical lines," the subjects including: Essay on "Great Britain and the present War;" for the best Open Letter to the Kaiser; an englyn on Lord Kitchener; verses describing our Soldiers in the Trenches and a three minutes' speech suggesting Llan- gollen improvements. There will, in addition, be numerous competitions to stimulate in- dustrial proficiency; the event, generally, promising to be as interesting as it is hoped it may prove highly successful.

CORRESPONDENCE. I [We do not hold ourselvei responsible for the opinion of our Ourrespondent.-Bi)]. AN URGENT APPEAL lo the Editor of the Llangollen Advertiser Sir,—May I make an u'gent appeal through your columns for sooks, mufflers, miotens and ilinnel Rhirts, or money to bay them, for the 2ad Lancers (Gardner's Army). The regiment recently arrived from India and is now in the Trenches. They are feeling the cold very greatly and the men are in need of warm clothing. Some of their hardships can be alleviated if people at home will kindly send them wollen comforts.' "All gifts will be most grate- fully acknowledged by youra, etc. (Mrs.) GWYN THOMAS. 19, Caledonia Place, Clifton, Bristol. Rh FISHING BYE LA.WS. To the Editor of the "Llangollen Advertiser" Dear Sir,-The letter under the above heading in your last issue was a stunner," not only to me bat to a great number of your readers. Both of the sportsmen are ranked among the leading Liberals of the Valley, and how they managed to subscribe their names to such an epistle is a mystery. They both admit they eonserve a p-Art of the Dee, and seem to fflory in the fact. How selfish 1 Why to lay claim to the running waters of a rivar goes under the very roocs of Liberalism I But they are not correct in their statment that the Tip is the only free part of the river. There is another stretoh, and a much better one, notwith- standing all the grabbing that has been going on of late, where the poor can claim the right to fish sad fish they will to their heart's content from next Monday. No) thanks to the two signatories. Apologising for trespassing on your ap sce.-I am, yours sincerely, REBECCA. UangoUen, February 6tb, 1916. I THE IMPROVED CORNER OF MARKET. EER WYN-STBEETS. I To the Editor of the Llangollen Advertiser. Dear Sir,—May I be allowed, through the medium of your paper, to suggest to the Lighcing Committee of the Cotmoil, that the electric liarht standard that used to stand at the corner of these streets be in future placed at the oarrer of the wall where Hall- street abuts on Market-street. It will be far more serviceable there than where it used to be. All who have traversed this road after dark will, I am sure, agree with me that, as there is a bend in just by Llangollen Brewery, the lights were most puzzling, and made it very difficult to keep to the footpath, you either stumbled into the hedge or fell into the main road, and if one obtained a broken leg who would be responsible for compensation ? Furthur, I may add that now: the light by Caefelin Laundry penetrates up to Barwyn-road so that there is no necessity to place the standard at the old spot. The improvement at the corner is a real one, hu' while they were at ib I oanuofc conceive why they should not have taken another yard into the field.- Yours respectfully, T.J.T. February 8th, 1915. I BILLETING POSSIBILITIES AT LLAN- GOLLEN. To the Editor of the Llangollen Advertiser." Sir,-I read in your last issue that this question has again claimed the attention of our Town Council. Some of the members assert. that they have done everything they cmid in the matter, while in faot they have really done nothing-in the right way. Let us examine what they have done. They have corresponded with our M.P. and the War Office. Why with our M.P.-what has he to do with military authorities ? And why send to the War Office while the head-quarters of the military command of this division is mUJh nearer home? Now they are aboit to send a deputation to Sir J. Herbert Roberts. Why could not they benefit by the experiences of Llandudno, Conway, Colwya Bay and Rhyl, who st nt deputatione, not to their M.P.s., but to Cheater to the military commander of the district. Why trouble about the matter now ? It is too late. The presence of a large force of soldiers here in the near furture would do more harm than good. Can this iaoiden.t be placed in the same category as the Llwyn Bich farce ? In conclusion, may I be allowed to ask one more question ? When the military authorities offered to send a large number of reoruits here in September, were they refused. ?-Yours respec,.f ally, C. H. Llangollen, Feb. 8th. I THE AUTOMOBILE SIGNPOSTS. I To the Editor of the Llangollen Advertiser." I Sir,—1 do not know who is or are responsible for the positions chosen for these posts, bat this I do know that the one put up at the top of Chapel- street, close to Bank Buildings, is placed in a most awkward position. If I understand aright, the purpose of these posts is to prevent the "slaughter of the innocents by the motor terror, then from one danger arises another, and a more formidable danger. It is possible that this pillar will kiil more in a given time than all the motors together. What more formidable danger after eleven at night, when the lighte are put out, than this ugly obstacle 1 Perhaps the authorities will see to its removal.-Truly yours, It A PXDBBTBCAN.

Iin 'memortanu "? ?-?? THE LATE MB. WILLIAM HENRY EyWNS It is with deep regret that we have, this week, to record the death of Mr. William Henry Evans, of Regent-etreet, in his seventy-fourth year. The sad event took place on Monday, after a trying illness borne with great fortitude. The deceased was s cabinet-maker by trade, and was a workman of great ability, making a fine art of his occupation, his work being al ways of exceptional excellence. He had work- ed at Messrs. Maples and other manufacturer of world-wide fame and his services were greatly appre- oiated by the famous London houses. At Llangollenr in oonj a notion with the late Mr. Morris Roberts (with whose family he was olosely associated all through life and who most sincerely mourn his loss) he leaves behind him many fine examples of his work; and his skill was much en evidence when the Parish Church h\1 undergoing restoration. Apart altogether from his skill as a craftsman Mr. Evans will be long remembered because of the broad-minded and intelligent spirit which he brought to the consideration of questions occupying; the public mind. By a considerable number of the young men of Llangollen his views were Bought and were always received with retipect and carried weight. Kindly and considerate of others, one of nature's gentlemen," the deceased set an example to his class that may be worthily and widely followed, and leaves behind him a very wide circle if friends who will keep greaa tilti memory foe many a day.
