Illness of Lady Mostyn. The following information dated Thursday is to hand from London We regret to say Lady Mostyn is laid up at 53, Onslow Gardens, South Kensington with an attack on the lungs and with a sight touch of pluerisy."
Week-end Excursion. Several residents of Gwespyr last week-end journeyed to London, presumably in connec- tion with the case of Miss Lombard. It is hoped on all hands that the action will be settled without having recourse to the law courts.
PRESTATYN SESSIONS. The monthly sessions for the Prestatyn division were held on Wednesday, when the magistrates present included Mr Elwy Williams (in the chair), Messrs J. B. Linnell, T. J. Scott, Thos Jones, John Williams and Tlios. Williams. THE CATTLE STRAYING NUISANCE. Thomas Williams, Chapel Row, Victoria Road, was charged, with allowing cattle to stray on December 28th last. P.C. Cheney stated that he found two horses belonging 0 to defendant galloping about in the road. and women and children had to run in all direc- tions out of the way. Eventually the animals were caught. Witness had re- peatedly warned Williams, but all to no pur- pose. The fact of the matter was, these horses were kept on other people's land, and this sort of thing was a great nuisance. Defendant "did not like to appear," he told the constable, and as it was his first Qffence the Bench dealt leniently with him. Fined 2/- with 8/- costs. ANNUAL LICENSING MEETING. It was announced that the above will be held at Prestatyn on February 13th. UNPAID KATES. The other cases dealt with were for rates, in one of which was raised a peculiar point. In this instance it was stated the wife was the householder, and the constable, although he called at the house twice, was unable to serve her with the summons. He, there- fore, met the husband in the street and served him. The Chairman held that there was no proof the wife had received the summons, therefore the case would have to stand over and a new summons issued.
Llanasa Parish Church. On Thursday last week the annual tea and concert connected with the Church Sunday School took place, the event proving a great success. There was a large attendance of scholars at the tea, and the entertainment which followed was thrown open to all parishioners, with the result that the school room was crowded. A very lengthy and extremely interesting programme was con- tributed, and among the items were two humourous sketches admirably performed by the Vicar's sons.
El Dorado! An enterprising correspondent hailing from Mostyn has discovered an entirely new road to fortune, and, according to his letter which we publish below, will shortly be in a position to reveal to his fellow-mortals a short cut to such wealth as is beyond the dreams of avarice. What a pity he has done nothing more than meditate on this for fifteen years If he had but hurried up with his "grand scheme" we might years ago have finished our present daily grind, and been revelling in luxury such as a Rockfeller might envy. This is what he writes :— A PROFITABLE INVENTION IN SWifT. "Anew invention is about to appear where- by all working men who will see the benefit of it and join as members shall, in the course of years, find themselves owners of a fortune. It commences thus,—Every purchaser of one pound's worth of goods will be entitled to full worth of each pound, and one pound profit on the purchase for two pounds purchase, two pound's profit, etc., up to fifty pounds pur- chase. "When the scheme is put in proper working order, the inventor expects to see working men applying to become members because C, it will rise in course of time the working man from his present state to a higher position of 11 life, by the purchase only, without an addition of one penny more. By this echemc there will be no loss whatever no, not one penny, but all a profit. In course of time after the scheme'Jias been in operation, the inventor expects to make a profit of millions of pounds which will be shared to all members, according to their purchase. The inventor is said to have meditated upon this scheme for the last fifteen years, and now has no hesitation in affirming that the advan- tages will be derived from appoints of view, so recognised that any word in recommenda- tion of the method would be superfluous. The secret of this grawl scheme^ and further information will, in course of little time, be disclosed to the public. After putting every- thing in proper order the pound profit on each one pound purchase will very soon come, and will disclose how the members will pro- cure their grand J or tune"
Social Evening. On Thursday last week, between 70 and 80 people thoroughly enjoyed a most pleasant evening at the National School, the occasion being a social event in connection with the technical instruction classes. Mr John Williams, J.P., (Rosslyn) presided, and the programme submitted was sustained mainly by members of the classes. All the items were much appreciated,and included selections of various European National Airs by a choir of the students, recitations by Messrs T. H. Hughes, A. Thomas, and Joseph Roberts, selections on the violin and piano by Mr and Mrs Reeder, songs by Misses M. Lee and G. Thomas, and J. Dowell Williams, and a piano- forte solo by Miss E. Roberts (Dyserth Hall). The accompaniments were played by Mrs Edwards, and the latter part of the evening was devoted to games and dancing. During the course of the proceedings, the Chairman was heartily congratulated upon his elevation to the magisterial bench, and the hope was expressed that he would live long to enjoy the honour. The whole of the expense incurred in enter- taining the company was generously defrayed by the local committee having charge of the technical classes.
United Prayer Meetings. have been held cash night this week, alter- nately at the C.M. and Weslcyan Chapels, and the attendance has been good. This is an annual custom observed in most parts of Wales at this time of the year.
Temperance Meeting. On Thursday night next a united tem- perance meeting is to be held, when addresses will be delivered by Miss Pritchard, Birmingham' (secretary of the North Wales Branch of the British Women's Temperance Association) Rev R. P. Hughes, and others. -+
POSTAL FACILITIES. To the Editor of the Prestatyn Weekly. Dear Sir,—I beg to thank you for calling attention to the necessity of better postal facilities in the upper part of Dyserth. The letter-box is a great convenience, and has saved many, besides myself, the time and trouble of going down to the bottom, especially during the wintry weather we have lately experienced. But when one has a small parcel to be sent. or money order to be dispatched, he has to go down. And this is not an infrequent necess- ity, for I often observe several like myself hurriedly tramping down with parcels, and even if one arrives at the post office a quarter- of-an-hour before closing time he will usually find the office packed. If we could have a sub post office up here it would greatly facilitate matters. For one thing the people in the upper part would be spared the journey to the bottom, and there would not be so much crushing and waiting at the bottom office. You have mentioned the name of Mr Williams, the new J.P., in this connection; will he not use his influence and move in the matter ?—Yours truly, S.
Trelogan. A Pretty Wedding took place on Saturday morning last at the C.M. Chapel, Trelogan, the contracting parties being Mr William Jones, Ty Gwyn, Axton, and Miss Annie Taylor, of Tyn-y- ffordd, Berthengam. The bridesmaid was Miss M. E. Taylor (sister of the bride) of Gwylta Cemmaes, Anglesea, and Mr R. J. Price, Sarn, acted as best man. There was a numerous congregation to witness the marriage, this being the first held after the chapel had been registered, and on account of which the bride and bridegroom will be presented with a family Bible. The ceremony was performed by the Rev Edward Parry, Carmel," Holywell, the Registrar being Mr J. Lloyd, Holywell. After the ceremony the wedding party partook of a sumptuous breakfast at the residence of the bride's mother. Later on Mr and Mrs Jones left for Chester. They were the recipients of a large number of useful and valuable presents.

English Congregational Church. There were several young people from other churches at the service last Sunday night, probably wishing to hear Mr H. T. Jones who was announced for the morning and the evening. In the afternoon Mr Jones had to attend a P.S.A. at Rhyl, of which he was chairman, and owing to impediments from the bicycle, could not return in time for the evening service. He tenders his sincere apologies to all concerned, and hopes to preach in the evening of the 20th just instead. His address to a crowded audience in the Boys Btigade Hall, at Rhyl, evoked much applause, and he was booked to preach on the first open date in Christ Church English Congregational. t)
"The Revival." The people who thronged "Peniel" oil Saturday night to hear the eminent lecturer, Mr W. 0. Jones, Aber, were highly gratified with his discourse, his subject being The vl 1 0 Revival of the middle ages, of 1859, and the recent one. For two hours he maintained intense attention, and the close came all too soon. After the lecture Trcbor Mon greeted the speaker with the following epigram, com- posed by himself:— Ddyry lwythog ddarlithidd,—dda agwedd 11 0 Ddiwigiad a chrefydd Golud 6 ben bwygilydd Waria'i ddawn,—gwr goreu'i ddydd. Yn ddiwall hwn ddwg allan—wyrtli y lor Aruthol ei hamcan I fyd Duw am dafod tan Yr "Raber" biu/r ruban Loud applause followed the reading of these verses, and Mr Jones thanked Trebor Mon for them. The chairman, Mr William Evans, Tan Lan, moved a vote of thanks to Mr Jones for his most excellent lecture, to which the audience responded heartily. The proceeds are to be devoted to the extension fund.

VOCALISTIC JEALOUSY. Tu the Editor of the Prestatyn Weekly." Dear Sir,—Being a constant reader of your worthy paper, I admire A Vocalist of Promise mentioned in a recent issue, but hate those who float such fallacious views as exist. The dimness of some people's vision is so deplorable that one thinks their only object in this world is to ruin everything. If a young person of ability, especially musical, has an ambition to attain a high and worthy position, veiy little cordiality is shewn towards him. Why I am so strongly attached to this young man is no secret, seeing that he has visited me eight or nine years. Never have I refused to do my utmost for others, therefore I cannot agree with such fantastic ideas as are being spread abroad. I am indicted with having done injustice to "A Vocalist of Promise." Now, I challenge any person to point out whence comes the indiiferoLce which they presume to be a very heinous crime on my part. Diligence has always been my motto in connection with the knowledge I have attained musically. There is difference in quality, I admit, but that's not a human business- voices are the gift of God yet proper instruction is a part of parental duty, and we have others in the village sacrificing time and money, perfectness being their ideal. A minister hinted lately of a non-sectarian movement in a certain neighbourhood, its object being to develop talent, but the 0 influence of his words reached no further I in (y than the walls of the building, nothing being done towards helping the young man referred to, although this veryainstrumentalist rendered his services free to the public. If we are similarly indebted why not work ? I do hope this letter will inspire interest and help to give the young man proper training. -Yours, etc. THOMAS WILLIAMS.
P.S.A. On Sunday afternoon the monthly P.S.A. i was held in the English Congregational Church. The preacher (Mr Holmer, Buckley) took the chair.

Weber (Liverpool Cath- edral), Mr Bright (Chester), Mr Bulcock (Gwespyr), The Rhyl Amateur Orchestral Society (conductor, Mr Haseldene). His Lordship'proposed a vote of thanks to the artistes, and Mr Trevor Eaton seconded.

Christ Church Sale of Work. This was held in the Schoolroom on the 3rd inst, the opening ceremony being per- formed by Right Hon. Lord and Lady Mostyn accompanied by their daughter Miss Gwyneth Mostyn. Among those also present were Mrs Storey (Pentreffynnon Hall), Mrs Trevor Eyton, Mrs Batters (Tan Lan Hali), Rev. D. Jones (Gorsedd), and others. There were four stalls, named respectively the North, South, East, and West. Each was managed by a number of ladies who shewed excellent taste in decorating. The Noith Stall displayed articles associated with the Arctic regions. A pole was placed in the centre (with a white bear at the top), from which bunting was suspended, inscribed with the names of well-known explorers. The South Stall contained refreshments, and the Southern cross was displayed. The East Stall was profusely decorated with silver stars, and the West Stall was synonymous of a West End establishment. In the adjoining room there was an Xmas Tree. During the opening hours Mr Nuttall, L.L.C.M., gave musical selections, and Mr Tudor Eyton manipulated his phonograph. The afternoon and evening brought large numbers of patronizers, and the takings totaled £i30. Rev W. V. Jones proposed a vote of thanks to Lady Mostyn in the after- noon, seconded by Mr Tudor Eyton. His lordship replied on behalf of her ladyship.
Obituary. The death of Mr John Williams, Garden Row, took place on Monday last under rather painful circumstances. Deceased had not enjoyed the best of health for sometime past, but on the 80th ult., whilst in Chapel he was taken ill and never recovered. He was a prominent member of the Wesleyan body, and was at the head of the list of lay preachers, which work he had done for about 40 years. During the same period he conducted a church members' class at Bryn Sion and also occupied the office of trustee and treasurer, and was trustee and chairman to the Rhewl Cemetery Committee. His colleagues speak highly of him, and the people of Mostyn realize that they have lost a good man. He was ()7 years of age, and leaves but his wife to mourn his loss. His funeral on Thursday at Rhewl was attended by a large number of friends who went to pay their last tribute of respect to the departed.
