Instead of mow, the streets, particularly High-street, are liberally covered with mud and small pods of water a.s the result of almost con- tinuous rain. Yesterday evening a por- tion of tho road to Menai Bridge was flooded. Inquiries among the principal tradesmen this morning ehow that the only shops w:here trade has been anything like brisk are those wftere food are sold. A poulterer, who had a remarkably heavy stock, stated that if he could have cb. tained them he could have solid consider- ably more turkeys and geese. A grocer also described tTie trade as steady and well up to previous years, which remark ako applies to -the butchers' shops, but at the other establishments there appears to be a slump compared with o^or Christmases. "â€¢'Hhe rainy weather lias undoubtedly kept people at home, ae is shown by the fact that I have had a largo number of tele- phone arid letter orders," stated a leading (JrapeT. This morning the weather showed a slight improvement, and the shops were rather bUBY.

I Our columns fairs week contain the an nouncement of the opening of tihis eagerly looked for event. and at no time is thi-, opportunity of secumng tine goods more opportune than at present-. Aptly called the Buy in time" winter sal e, it -must be appreciated as the last link with prices of the past, as it is abundantly clear that prices must soar to a height tihat can hardly be contemplated even to-day. Mills are changing hands for anything from-five to fifteen times their pre-wair value, and will have to produce divilden(i,, on to-day's high rate of money on tfeis largely in- oroased capital. Railway goods rates will in a few day, bo advanced 50 ptv cent. Labour rates yjre still progressive, and raw material more difficult to obtain than even'. Taking into account the serious world shortage, the great hunger for clothing of absolutely every description, and the im- possability of any other oount.ry but Eng- land to supply it, the real position may be gauged. No prudent person should overlook the opportunity Wartski's offer. A atook of several thousands of pounds' worth of high-class weaiing apparel laid out for clearance without any regard to cost is not an event to be treated lightly. I PETTY SESSIONS. I The weekly sessions were held on Tues- day, before Sir Henry Lewis (chairman). Judge Bryn Roberts, the Mavor (Mr R. J. Williajns), Dr. L'oyd Williams, Dr. Pritchard, Dr. Thomas, Messrs G. Lewis Griffith, and W. R. Jones. Mr Pentir Williams stated that the case in which John Hughes, miller, Taly- bont, charged John Jones, farm labourer, Llandegai, with assault, had been settled through the intervention of a neighbour. Walter Wel'ings, a collier from Rother- ham, was charged with faiiing to obey an order made against him at tne instance of M. C. Jones, Nantyfelin, Llanfairfechan. for the maintenance ot her child, the ar- rears amounting to Â£ 3 15s.â€”An order was ma.de for tihe payment of the amount in full. Joseph Lang, itcencea of the British Hotel. Bangor, was summoned for over- charging for beer. Mr S. R Dew prose- cuting for the Food Commissioner, stated that Mr E. Robbins, divisional tood in- spector. Wrexham, called at the British Hotel for lunch, and ordered a half-pint tankard of beer, for which he was charged 5d instead of 4d. After consuming the first half-pint, Mr Robbins ordered a sec- ond, and he gave the waitress 1, and she returned with 8d, so the charge in this instance was correct. Mr Robbins was sihown Jive barrels of beer in the cellar, 011 which was inscribed the prices to be chargedâ€”7d a pint in the public bar aud Id extra elsewhere. In regard to the first half-pint, tlie illegal protit of 1<1 would, in a. barrel, mean a profit above what was legally allowed of H2 8s. Mr Nee, Carnarvon, tor the defence, said that the overcharge of Id was made under a 111isapprehens.cn. The person who made the charge thought she cou:d charge Id more when drink was served in the dining room, in view of tho service, the provision of the tankard (which cost from 10s to 15s el.ld:r, tihe carppb, linen, etc. A mistake wa4 made, but Mr Nee pointed out how dilhcul't it wa. to follow the Food Orders. As it was Christmas time, he hoped the Bench would be len- ient. A line of C2 was imposed. I SCHOOLMASTER HONOURED. I Alderman T. J. Williams, who, after thirty years' service as headmaster of St. Paul's School, retired recmtly, has been the recipient of a wal.-et of noto. subscribed by teachers, parents, managers, a.nd the public gener- liliy as an irKlicaUofi of appieciation of Mr Williams' services to the cause of edu- cation, at St. Paul's School in particu- lar, and generally for a period of forty- five years at Portdinorvvic and Llanfair- caereinion as certificated teacher, and throughout Wales as an educational work- er. The gathering, at which the presenta- tion was made by Miss Morris, head mistress of the junior schoctl, was presided over by Mr W. J. Roberts, Penmaen- mawr, who for many years was an ,assist ant master under Mr Williams.

I OBITUARY, I I MRS E. JONES. I The death occurred last week, at Car- narvon, of Mrs E. Jones, widow of "Ap Ffarmwr." Formerly she was on the staff at London House, and latteirly was em- ployed by Messrs Griffith Jones and Co. I- She lived in Regent-street. I MRS GROSS.

Jones, M.A., vicar, officiated at tihe funeral. MR ROBERT HUGHES. I At Glanadda, Cemetery, on Tuesday, the funeral took place of Mr Robert Hughes, High-street, who dicci at the ago of 68 years. Decease had a seizure nearly two wars ago, and since tilien he had been confined to his bed. He was elected a member of the Bangor City Council soon after that body was formed, and continued a member for many years He was also for soirie years one of the representatives of Bangor on the Carnarvonshire County Council. In former da.ys he was a playing member of the local Football Ul ub. The Rev. H. Harris Hughes, B.A., pastor of Tabernacle Chapel, officiated at the funeral. I LOCAL AMUSEMENTS. I I COUNTY THEATRE. I Sir John Hare as "Eccles" in "Caste," with which the week opened, is an imper- sonation worthy of the great actor's fame. To-morrow (Christmas Day) matinee: and evening performance, and on Boxing Day (matinee only) Master Freddie Wood, the clever boy actor, appears in Harma's pro- duction "The Warrior Strain," which is s hown in Bangor prior to any other town in the country. It is an up-to-date fairy tale. On Friday Hight and Saturday, the star picture wÃœl be "The White Man," which will be hailed with delight by aU who love a strong story. The re-issue of "East is East"-the ta,o of an East-ender suddenly thrust into the drawing rooms of May fairâ€”will be wel- comed by aU true picture-iovera, if only because it brings back Florence Turner once again. Few films served better to show the versatility of that master among producers, Henry Edwards, and Mr Hare has undoubtedly done wisely in teintro- ducing the picture to his patrons. Every- one seems to have the dancing crazo late- ly, and a thoroughly topical item in Thursday's programme is entitled "Jazz- mania." Every step of the famous Jazz Fox Trot is shown, and those who are in- terested in the terpsiobore&n art should not miss the opportunity of seeing a. really re- liable exposition of this a = and quajn est of dances. The 4tar picture for the week-end will be "The Bride's Awaken- ing," one of the few productions that can claim to be thoroughly representative of high &ass drama. There is not a dull moment throughout, the interest being maintaiinedi a series of dramatic inci- dents leading to a powerful climax. The stellar role is in the hands of ylac Mur- ray, who. as Elaine Bronson a sym- pathetic portrayal of the unfortunate wife. THE PICTUREDROME The chief picture during the first half of the week was "Men." a sensational so- ciety play with which was -Iowti the final episode of "The Woman in the Web." To-morrow (Christmas Day) there will be performances at 2.30 piii, and 7 p.m., when suitable films will be shown. The I arrangements for Boxing Day include three performances, one in the afternoon and the two in the evening (6 and 8). The principal attraction will be "The Be- loved Traitor," featuring MaR. Margh, and there will also be the "Fair Shadows." Prices as usual. Pauline Frederick appears in the "Woman on the Index" next week s opening picture, and there will be rather a novelty for local picture goers during the week-end, when the famous Gaby ap- pears in the "Angel of Forgiveness. There is only one Gaby. so say her host of admirers, and in this picture she ap- pears in a number of her beautiful dressed.

LABOUR MINISTER AND A I BANGOR INCIDENT. I GRANTS FOR EX-SERVICE F(-)Ill- I ESTRY STfJDENTS. Sir R. Homo, replying to a question m the House of Commons on Monday, said ho was informed thai out of seven appli- cations for training grants from cx-Seivicc men forestry students at Bangor, six had been grarrted within tho last month, and that payments on account had been made in each case. Further payments would be made in due course on receipt of the usual certificate of attendance from the lJIlJ- versity authorities. He regretted to find that decisions in sonic of these cases had been delayed by causos which he had 1:0" yet had time to investigate, but directions had been given for the grants to be madi retrospective to the commencement oi training whenever this was possible under tho regulations. The seventh application was only put in OIl November 4th. In this ease a decision had to be postponed for certain supple- mentary information, but it would bL finally dealt with at an early date. He was not aware that any of tho seven men had to leave the University on account of non-payment of a grant; but if the hon. member woud give him particulars he would make ihuiries.

On 3rd February, 1908, Mr Waby -aid:- "Back,wlie, dropsical swellings and cystitis (inflammation of tho bladder) distressed me for eighteen months. Then Stone-m- the-bladdor developed. Urination became scanty and painfulâ€”the excretions- being almost a blood red There seemed no esoapo from a surgical operationâ€”nothing so far had done me good. But at this stage, Doan's Backaohe Kidney Pills were recommended, and they brought surpris ing relief. They soothed the bladder, set the kidneys working right, and in one week had rid me of nine pieces of the bladder-stone.

The natural consequence is that the breathing is affected, the bronchial tubes or bronchi become inflamed, and cough, more or less serious, follows. If neglected the entire respiratory system is weakened, and that way consumption lies. Children suffer more frequently from such complaints than do their elders, the death rate among the very young being truly appalling, and in too many instances due entirely to thoughtless neglect.
