Proposed Winter Lectures. A meeting was held a few days ago at the residence of Dr Townsend, Mr T. J. Scott, J.P., presiding, to consider the question of instituting for the benefit of Prestatyn and the villages immediately adjacent, a system of popular public lectures on scientific or literary subjects. It was felt that there was need for such a movement, in order that our community may be kept in line with the ever-growing intelligence of the timesâa sentiment in which we are sure all the readers of the Prestatyn Weekly will concur. The meeting formed itself into a Prestatyn Lecture Committee, and a numerous list of names was made out of gentlemen who should be invited to act on the committee. These, no doubt, will be waited upon within a very few days. It was also resolved to commence operations by making application to the Gilchrist Educational Trust for a course of lectures during the winter of 1907-8. The result of this application will not be known for perhaps two months. If it should be unfavourable, it is probable that the Pres- tatyn Lecture Committee will seek some other means of providing intellectual stimulus and nourishment for the people.
