| INTERESTING ITEMS. | Plenty of Choice. Over 70 applications have already been received for the vacant Surveyorship to the Prestatyu Council. Hear, hear! say we. I A lady speaker at a meeting in Prestatyn the other evening referred to the important part woman had taken in history. Coming to latter day events, this lady said that during the recent general election women were asking Why should they be classed with criminals and lunatics? Surely if they were sane enough to pay rates and taxes, they ought to be considered qualified to have a voice in the selection of those who spend the money." Trinity Church. The monthly social was held on Thursday under the presidency of Rev. Dr. Townsend. On this occasion the tea was provided by three of the members- Bev. E. Thomas, Miss Beeby, and Miss Lacy. A very excellent programme of music, with addresses, were given to an appreciative audience. Presentations. As a mark of the high esteem in which Sir Pyers and Lady Mostyn, of Talacre, are held in Prestatyn, a number of local tradesmen have combined to purchase a silver bowl, which will shortly be presented to the dis- tinguished couple in honour of their recently- celebrated silver wedding. The bowl, which is suitably inscribed, was supplied by Mr O. H. Hughes, jeweller, at whose establishment it is now on view. Sir Pyers' Holywell tenantry are also about to make their presentation, which will take the form of a handsome piece of silver plate. The Gymnasium. At the British School on Thursday night, a very successful whist drive and dance was held in connection with the Gymnasium Club. There was a large number present, and all seemed to have had a thoroughly enjoyable time, the party not breaking up until the early hours of Friday morning. Preliminary Announcement. A Sale of Work in connection with the Rehoboth C.M. Church, will be held on April 3rd, 4th, and 5th, in the Town Hall, Prestatyn Snowstorm. Residents ofPrestatyn and the countryside were surprised on Friday morning to find the ground covered with a mantle of spow-ad unnsual visitation in this mild climate. Removals. Messrs Frank Jewell and Co., Auctioneers, etc., have removed to more commodious offices at the corner of Maes-y-groes. The premises have been beautified, and are to be known in future as "Central Chambers." In addition to the above-named firm, Messrs Thomas & Walkley, will occupy one suite of these offices, and Mr Clement Hughes, Solicitor, another. Fighting the Waves. At a conference at Westminister on Tues- day of local authorities whose areas suffered from erosion by the sea, it was resolved to approach the Government with a view of obtaining assistance towards coast aeience. Nearly all of the towns affected, from Brid- lington on the east to Rhyl on the west, sent representatives to the conference, and all complained of the grievous burden of pro- tective works on the local rates. On the Yorkshire coast eleven feet is swallowed up every year by the sea, and Bridlington has spent J6100,000 on defence works. ♦
