Preserved Vegetable Marrow. Peel and cut into strips two large marrows, remove the pulp and seeds, and to each pound allow lib. lump sugar. Put the marrow and sugar in a preserving pan to stand until next day, aud to every 51b. put 2ozs. oi gin- ger cut into pieces, also the juice of three lemons and poet of two cut into strips, Boil very slowly for four hours, taking care that it does not crystalise.
Rabbit Pie. Cut into joints and well wash a young rabbit, put into a stew jar with sufficient hot water to cover it, add pepper and salt and one onion. Stew slowly for half-an-hour, then put in a pie dish and lay two slices of bacon over. Allow it to get quite cold before covering with the crust, which should be made of lib of flour, lOoz. lard, and tea- spoonful of salt. Bake in a brisk oven for one hour.
Belled Damson Pudding. Tu lib flour, add 8oz. finely chopped suet, and pinch of salt; make into paste with fresh milk. Grease a pudding basin and line with the crust, fill up with Damsons and sugar alternately (or any other fruit which is in ■ sea son), cover with paste and a well-floured cloth and plunge into boiling water. Boil for 2 or 2-hours without allowing it to cease. Boiled custard is a nice accompaniment to this pudding.
Household Hints. Spirits of salts is an excellent thing to take the mortar off newly laid tiles. A resident writes I see you have a 4 Household Hints column, and think the following will be useful to your readers-at least I hope so. My house was like living in a refrigerator until I fitted it up; now warm and "comfy." The worst draught comes from under the bottom of front and back doors, and as you will know in very cold weather rugs, mats, etc., are put there to exclude it. But these make bother and trouble because of having to be replaced every time the door is opened. Anyone can make a very simple remedy for this Get a strip of carpet or felt about a foot wide, and about two inches longer than the width of the door frame. Then get a piece of wood, or strip of iron, the length of the door-frame, and sew it into a seam at one side of the carpet, leaving one inch of seam loose at either side. When finished put the weighted seam on the floor so that it will lie close to it, and tack the other end to the door frame. The door can then be opened and shut as easily as possible, and keep out all draught. The door-frame at my house has at the bottom quite half-an-incli of space between it and the floor, and I daresay there are many other houses the same. The cold weather is coming along, and I thought above might be a seasonable "House- hold Hint." _I

JABEZ BALFOUR AT PARKHURST. The following description of Jabez Balfour's prison lot is given in "Twenty-five Years in Seventeen Prisons," by "No. 7". As a "star man" (i. e., a prisoner under first sentence) Mr. Jafcez Balfour was kept apart from ordinary prisoners, and he was therefore effectually shielded from the contaminating influences insepar- able from the regular army of convicts on public works. Balfour was sent to Parkhurst shortly after his conviction, but, for some occult reason, he was subsequently transferred to Portland Prison, where he had a rather rough time of it. I heard that his health gave way at that "station," and I do not wonder at it. Anyhow, he was (in 1898) transferred from Portland back to Parkhurst, on, I suspect, medical grounds, and was at once placed in No. 28 party—the tailoring gang. Although I could not get at him for conversational purposes, I saw him every morning, between 7.30 and 8.30 a.m., on the exercise-ground, taking the air. This is a description of the great "Liberator": Dressed in the ordinary knickerbocker suit of "classic grey," liberally besprinkled with that badge of infamy, the broad arrow, the ex-hon. member cut but a poor figure, and, to judge by appearances, the four years' confinement had told heavily upon him. He looked a little haggard and careworn, although he had not by any means lost much flesh. Subject to the ordinary prison regime, he enjoyed no immunities not possessed by any other prisoner unless it was in the matter of prison literature—a no small consideration for an educated prisoner. He rose at 5.20 a.m., cleaned up his cell, made up his bed, and, with a regularity only to be found in prisons, workhouses, and hospitals, sat down to his breakfast at 6 a.m., his dinner at 11.45 a.m., and his supper at 5.45 p.m. daily.

FOOTBALL NOTES. The Prestatyn Club had a fixture to fulfil at Rhyl on Saturday, where they met the Combination team from that town. The elements were not at all suitable, play having to be commenced in a drizzle, which later increased to a heavy. downfall of rain. Nevertheless, the game was an interesting one, and afforded a good deal of excitement at some stages. 0 The following represented Prestatyn Goal, W. Glass; backs, J.; Jones, T. W. Ellis; halves, J. Hughes, R. Hughes, E. Mostyn forwards, G. Giass, W. Stone, D. Hughes, D. W. Jones, and J. R. Hughes. Mr Thomas Jones (Rhyl) was the master of ceremonies. Prestatyn won the toss, and took ad- vantage of the breeze and the hill. The Rhylites were immediately aggressive, but the visitors' defence was equal to the demand, and they transferred play to the other end. Roberts, Love Jones, and Rowland Thomas were prominent for the home side, but their rushes were successfully dealt with, and after a quarter of an hour's play the visitors gained a lead, G. Glass scoring the first goal of the season for Prestatyn. This was quite a surprise for the home lot, and they strove hard to get on an equal footing with their opponents. Glass and his backs were given plenty of work, but they were not to be caught napping. The visitors were more than holding their own now, and their perseverance was eventually rewarded, D. W. Jones doing the needful. There was no further change when the teams crossed over, the score being then 2 goals to nil in favour of Prestatyn. This state of affairs did not suit the home team at all, and they immediately got on the aggressive, with the result that it was not long before they netted the ball. For the next half-hour matters were fairly even, and then Rhyl made a spurt and scored, the teams being then equal. The visitors livened up now, and made strenuous efforts to alter matters, and after a good many attempts they gained the desired end and scored their third goal. Time was drawing nigh, and the Rhyl lot evidently did not approve of being beaten by Prestatyn, for about eight minutes from time they scored, and the game ended with three goals being registered for each team. The Prestatyn team, however, was of the opinion that the last goal for Rhyl should not have been awarded, for Glass (the goal-keeper) is said to have been tripped when the ball was placed in the net. At a meeting of the Prestatyn Club's sup- porters on Tuesday night it was decided to join the newly-formed North Y/ales Junior League. It was pointed out that a club can be run in this league for about a quarter of the cost of remaining in the Flintshire League, and in addition to the majority of the old players several new members will be available. A strong team has been selected to repre- sent Prestatyn at Denbigh ou Saturday in the North Wales Coast Cup-tie. For the Flintshire Challenge and also for the Flintshire Charity Cups, Prestatyn will be at home to Mold Victoria.
HOLYWELL WATER SUPPLY. At the monthly meeting of the Holywell Urban Council on Monday night, it was decided to submit to the Local Government Board for their approval plans prepared by Mr Caradoc Williams, Chester, for furnishing a wa.ter supply to the town, at an estimated cost of £ 5,200. The scheme is to abstract from St. Winefride's stream weekly 750,000 gallons which will run into the old reservoir below the well. From here the water will be pumped by means of rams into a service reservoir to be constructed above the level of the town.
A FARMER FINED. Improper Use of Water, At Rhyl Police Court on Tuesday a Rhuddlan farmer named Owen Williams was summoned under three informations for im- properly taking water from the main of the Rhyl Urban District Council. In the first case Mr Williams was charged with unlaw- fully permitting to be fixed a pipe to the service pipe without the consent of the Council. The second charge was that he fraudulently on the same date extracted the Council's water. The third was that on July 30th he used water for othor than domestic purposes when he was only entitled to a supply for domestic purposes. For the defence it was denied that wilfully and knowingly Mr Owen Williams had committed the offences charged against him, and evidence was given by the defendant to this effect. The Court unanimously convicted the defendant on the first charge, and the prose- cution withdrawing the second and third cases costs in those would be remitted. A fine of 5s. was imposed, with £1 17s. 6d. costs. Printed and Published by J. T. BURROWS, High-st.,Pj*esta.tyn, inthe County of Flint.
