TEMPERANCE MEETING. At the Church Room on Monday night a goodly number attended a meeting of the local branch of the Church of England Temperance Society, when the Vicar presided. Miss Howe had been announced to address the meeting, but the, chairman explained that this lady had had to go to Wrexham to speak at a meeting of the Girls' Friendly Society. A very able substitude was however, found in the Rev. Mostyn Jones, Liverpool (who preached at Christ Church the previous day). The rev. gentleman gave an interesting and able address, which was listened to with rapt attention by the audience. Being engaged in a slum parish in Liverpool, Mr Jones was able to speak from his own experience as to the evil wrought by intem- perance among men and women in these parts, and he described in vivid word- pictures the revolting scenes he had witnessed. He appealed to his hearers to continue in the good work of temperance, and congratulated the people of Prenta-tyn on having such a nourishing Society in their midst. The Vicar made a few brief remarks, and a paper on the Temperance Question was also read by Mr J. W. Williams, the meeting terminating with votes of thanks to the speakers, which was proposed by Mr Inglefield and seconded by Mr D. Hughes.
