The Vicar's Illness. Our readers will regret to learn that the estimable Vicar of the Parish (Rev John Owen) is seriously ill, his condition at the time of writing (Thursday morning) causing much anxiety. He has been confined to bed for a fortnight or so, and on Friday he was seized with a paralytic stroke. At the service in Church on Sunday, prayers were offered on his behalf, and the whole of the parishioners join in a fervent wish for his speedy recovery.
0 and District Association is to be held on Thursday next at Pentre Farm, Cwm.
New Industry. The progress of the work of searching for cobalt in the Voel is favourably commented upon, and the Liverpool firm which has the undertaking in hand has recently erected new kilns and laid down plant for the purpose of more expediously dealing with the mineral. Several men are engaged in the work, and operations are being carried out under the direction of Mr Alexander Macrae. --+-
PARISH COUNCIL AND STILES. To the hklitor of the Prestatyn Weekly. Sm- "Will you kindly allow me a little space to call the attention of the Parish Council to some stilos in the neighbourhood. There is a path leading from the Church across Dyserth Hall field, and passing through the top ef Mr Connah's field. Now, the stiles at both ends of the last mentioned field are most awkward. They were made not long ago, and erected in a fashion, I should say, to discourage people p walking that way. In addition to this a heap of thorns and brambles is deposited quite in front and at the foot of the stile. Another much-used path leads from Lon Dywyll, below the railway, and through the woods. The first stile, a new one, just put up by the railway men, is difficult to get over, but the second, which crosses a ditch as well (the making of the railway men again) is really dangerous. Three or four bars of wood to climb over, without even one cross step, usually found on these stiles, to help you. Then, on the other side is a deep diich, crossed by an old railway sleeper, upon which one has to alight when descending from the bars. I repeat, this stile and ditch are dangerous, and the Parish Council ought to have notified the Railway Company of it. Further on there is water running from under the line, and since there is no gutter for it, the water spreads over the path, making it difficult to pass. The Council have repaired the part which runs through the woods, why allow this nuisance to exist for years ? Of course, in summer it is all right. May I ask, therefore, is one to presume that the Council, when cutting the brambles and widening the path through the woods, had its eye on the visitors in Summer, and care not how the illhabitituts fare in the Winter ? I appeal to the Parish Council to deal with these stiles and paths, and many besides my- self will be obliged.—Yours truly, PARISHIONER.
T Newmarket. Death. On Monday the death occurred of Mr Edward Blytliin, at Axton. He was a prominent Wesleyan, well-known in the district, and much respected by all with whom he had come in contact. The funeral took place at Newmarket on Thursday.
To Develop Talent. As the outcome of Mr Jones' letter in the P.W." a few weeks ago, a meeting was held in the Avesleyal.) Schoolroom on Friday, the 11th itist., to discuss the matter. Several notices were sent out, but some of those requested to attend did not do so, so that the progress of the cause was consequently slower than anticipated. However, much interest in the movement was manifested at the meeting, and Rev E. G. Turner was elected hon. sectretary. Another meeting will be arranged for next week.
Evening School Supper. This much-looked for event took place last Wednesday evening at the Council School, and was given by gentlemen interested in the education of our young men. The catering was in the able hands of Mr Williams, London House, who gave every satisfaction. Over fifty sat down to supper, including the work- ingmen managers of the school. Letters of apology for non-attendance were read from CIY Rev. Dr. Pan Jones, Mr Thomas Roberts (Pen-y-ffordd), and Dr. Evans. Mr and Mrs Batters received a splendid reception on their arrival. After supper a hearty vote of thanks was given the donors of the supper, on the pro- position of Mr Batters, who also gave the young men some good advice. The vote was seconded by Mrs Batters, supported by Mr Dickenson. A miscellaneous entertainment followed, presided over by Mr Batters, the programme including Song, Master John Henry Lloyd; recitation, Master Isaac Leighton gramo- phone selection, Mr Dickenson, ventriloquism Master John Henry Lloyd recitation, Mr C. J. Batters; mimicking dialogue, Masters John Henry and Edward Lloyd song, Mr Richard Owen Williams speech. Mr Arthur Dennis chorus, night school male voice choir, led by Master John Henry Lloyd game, Family Coach," story read by Mr T. Jones, School. Several well-known Welsh hymns were sung by the choir, and a most enjoyable evening was spent.

DWELLING PLACES. 't) Ihe Hditor of the "Prestatyn Weekly. The Land for the People question is broadening, and as we view the elevated areas to the south of us, how pitiful the lact that industrious men and women arc driven to raise dwellings on the many marshy spots at Ffynnongroew and snch places as Halendy, Mostyn. Halendy has no frontage or back premises worth calling such, and mothers must be ever vigilant or have their children maimed, and privies and noxious evaporations whbh should be exposed to the wind, are confined by a lofty railway wall. Religious shepherds who build up their reputations on the care of their flock in such folds, yea, and encourage them with that view, yet have their own dwellings well away, ought to crawl past in sackcloth and ashes, until they have sown the place, not with Arcadian fables, Egyptian legends, and old Homish miracles, but with salt and slacked lime. When I began building at Ffynnongroew, I 0 11 was attacked at once by known and unknown parties. v Tbere are hills of good sand close by, yet my contractor was refused any on application, and driven to the sea, and the effect of sea- sand on brickwork exposed to the sun was self-evident for years. When I had completed my houses, the Rural District Council came into existence, and some of the members eager for my discomfiture, seized upon the more stringent rules of the new Board and applied them in my case, though neither fair or legal, for I had completed under the old. They attacked me for drainage, quite un- necessary, for I had built on the old pebble sea beach, consolidated under the houses, but a few yards below loose and porous enough to drain the Dyserth Waterfall. To please the Board I spent a few pounds on sinks and pipes money thrown away. Then an attempt was made to condemn my privies, substantially built, open to the breeze, and in the right place with respect to my houses or any other adjacent dwelling, and ultimately they refused to pass my plans. An idiotic and fruitless attack on an unknown force. A CHALLENGE. Dwelling houses are being built at present at Ffynnongroew, on low marshy land. If members of the Urban District Council would convince the public that they are not there for selfish ends, to deal severely with the one leniently with the other, as he happens socially to be at top or bottom of the ladder, let them use their authority to restrain fur- ther laying of foundations in water, until the owner has drained the land, and made it sanitary, for water has covered the surface for months, and in the dryest period sinks but a few inches below. Now that the Rev. Dr. P. Jones has a mission to attack landowners,—"those bas- tard nobles," as he quaintly terms them — though somewhat out of reach of the old guns he clings to, let me call his attention to an object shot or two within range. 0 Land was put up for auction at Ffynnon- groew by our present M.P., I was the highest bidder at ten times its value and failed at that, for a reserve price was put on, and I came into possesion by paying the large sum of < £ 300 for half-an-acre of reclaimed land. Downright extortion Would any other countryman of mine, lord of acres or owner of one, demand as much ?—Yours, etc., IsHMAEL JONES. 1 Lewis Terrace, Ffynnongroew. 0
A Visitor. R. Rhydderch, Esq., H.M. Sub-Inspector of Schools, visited the Evening Continuation Classes on Monday last, and was greatly pleased with the attendance and progress made.
Sudden Death. Cornelius Jones (son of Mr John Jones. Gorse) died on Monday last, at the age of 19. He was in good health up to the 5tli inst. On that day he went to Caerwys with the Mostyn football team, of which he was a member. It is probable he got a cold on that day which developed into pneumonia. Much sympathy is extended to the family in their bereavement. The funeral takes place on Saturday.
Tea and Entertainment. Ou Saturday evening the first of a series of events as above in connection with Mynydcl Seion Chapel was held, and passed oil very successfully. These are being or- ganised in conjunction with a bazaar to be held in April next. On this occasion Mrs Parry, Bodlondeb, provided the refreshments, and the tea makers were, in addition to Mrs Parry, Misses Hughes, Arcade Miss Evans, Fourcrosses; Mrs Evans, Crown Cottage, and others. A large number partook of a splendid tea, and remained for the entertain- ment which was held in the evening, under the chairmanship of Mr Thomas Evans, Mr William Parry acting as conductor. The secretary was Mr T. Evans, Crown Cottage.
Sunday School Anniversary. This anniversary was held at Sarn Inde- pendent Chapel last Sunday, when Mr Thos. Jones, Newmarket, presided over the after- noon proceedings, which opened with a con- gregational hymn, followed by prayer by Mr R. T. Price, Greenfield. The children from Sarn, Penllwyn, and Newmarket sang hymns, and they were catechised by Messrs R. J. Hough, E. Hoskins, and Hughes Jones. In the competitions the winners were For repeating the 1st Psalm, 1st Eva Roberts, 2nd W. Hugnes, both from Newmarket, the third prize also going to a scholar from New- market, 4th Nellie Hughes, Sarn. Repeating two chapters of St. Peter, 1st W. H. Evans, Newmarket. The meeting was closed by Mr Robert Ellis, Gelli. The evening meeting was opened by Mr R. J. Hough, and a quartette was contributed by the Ty Newydd Party. For repeating the 1st chapter of St. Peter Mr Thos. Williams, Sarn, was the winner, and for repeating a psalm Mr R. J. Hough, Sarn, was awarded the prize. Mr John Roberts, Gvaenysgor, catechised the senior scholars, the answers being good. After a hymn, the meeting was closed by Mr Hughes Jones, Newmarket.
