CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH A Successful Concert. At the Town Hall on Thursday evening, a concert promoted in aid of the funds of the Welsh Congregational Church was held, and 0 the event proved to be a decided success from every point of view. There was a large attendance, and the programme submitted was of a highly entertaining character, the appreciation of the audience being amply demonstrated by the frequent re-calls to which the artistes had to respond. In the absence of Mr Thos. Jones, J.P Mr J. T. Partington occupied the chair, and the programme was sustained by Madame Burton Griffiths (Chester), Miss Randies (Chester), Miss Bessie Evans (Dyserth), Mrs and Misses Yeoman, Miss Wright, Miss Dilys Hughes, and Mr Amos Jones. R.A.M., all of whom acquitted themselves in a most creditable manner. Mr G. W. Jones was at the piano, and he played the accompaniments in his customery finished style. When the time arrived for the Chairman's address, Mr Partington said he was going to pass that item, but he would just like to mention that he was glad of an opportunity of giving a little help to his Congregational friends. He felt sure he was expressing the opinion of all when he said that they had had a most pleasant time (applause). Before the conclusion ot the proceedings, the Rev. Ben Williams (Pastor of the Church) stated that although Mr Thos. Jones was unable to be present he sent a handsome donation to the funds (applause). He pro- posed a vote of thanks to Mr Partington for occupying the chair, he having come forward at a moment's notice to the artistes, and to all who had assisted in making the concert such a success. He also included Rev. Ezra Johnson who had that evening sent them a generous donation. The vote was seconded by Mr G. O. Williams, who endorsed the remarks of the proposer, adding that Mr Partington had proved himself a friend in need. The proposition was heartily carried, and acknowledged by the Chairman. The secretarial duties connected with the concert had been efficiently carried out by Mr R. Hughes, and the treasurer was Mr J. M. Hughes.
PRESTATYN, FREE CHURCH COUNCIL.
PRESTATYN FREE CHURCH COUNCIL. A meeting of the Council was held on Monday, representatives from the C.M.. Wesleyan, Congregational, and U.M. Churches being in attendance. With reference to the question of sending a delegate to the forth- coming Nonconformist Convention at Cardiff, it was felt by some that the local Council should not be burdened with the heavy expense of sending a representative, but that a letter of sympathy should be sent, with the suggestion that a similar meeting be held in North Wales. This it was agreed to do. The president (Rev W. Bell) announced that the second session of the Girls' Guild will shortly be commenced, and that the opening meeting thereof will be addressed by Mr Herbert Roberts. He gave a cordial invitation to all the members of the Council to attend this meeting. A committee was appointed to enquire into the financial position of the Council.
Record Scoring. On Monday, whilst playing a match with Lord Mostyn, of Mostyn Hall (a vice- president of the club), Mr Shaw, the local professional, created a record for these links with a grand score of 70 (36 out and 34 home). His Lordship expressed himself well pleased with the links. During last week Frank Mortimer, Esq., of Golden Grove (also a vice-president) was on the links two days, and he also was highly satisfied with the condition of the course.

A Prestatyn Freemason.
A Prestatyn Freemason. Mr D. P. Morgan, of Nant Cottage, Pres- tatyn, who is well known along the Welsh coast, has recently received distinction at the hands of the Hon. Alan de Tatton Egerton. the Provincial Grand Master of Cheshire. Mr Morgan, who was initiated into Free- masonry at Newport, Mon., some 18 or 19 years ago, joined the Lodge of Independence, No. 721, when he took up his residence at Chester. Some time before his removal to Prestatyn he became (in 1896) a founder of the Traveller's Lodge, No. 2,609 at Chester. and about seven years ago he became W.M. of the Lodge, of which he remains an active member. He has now been elected to the office of Provincial Grand Assistant Director of Ceremonies, a distinction which will give much satisfaction to the members of the Travellers' Lodge, and to his many friends within and without the ranks of Freemasonry. -Cheste)- Chronicle.
Prestatyn for the Welsh.
Prestatyn for the Welsh. At the meeting of the Education Committee at Mold last week, Mr Thomas Williams expressed the opinion that any teacher appointed to the Prestatyn Council School should be able to speak Welsh. The Director of Education promised to comply with Mr Williams' suggestion in this respect. 0
A "Smoker." The first of the above events in connection with the Liberal Association took place on Tuesday, when the chair was occupied by Mr T. E. Griffiths. After refreshments had been partaken of, an entertaining programme of music, etc., was contributed to by Messrs J. LI. Jones, LI. Roberts, H. Roberts and others, Mr G. A. Charlton proving himself a most able accompanist. The proceedings included a competition for repeating the best short comic story, the prize being won by Mr Lloyd Jones (Rhyl).
Billiards. It is intended to open a handicap at the at the Liberal Club shortly, and for this pur- pose several new appliances have been pur- chased so that now the tables will be in good order.
PROPERTY SALE. At the Royal Victoria Hotel on Monday, Mr Frank Jewell offered for sale property situate on the Victoria Park Estate. In sub- mitting the lots the auctioneer remarked that people living in the large centres of industry were rapidly realising the advantages ofPres- as a health resort. Further, the railway time- table was always a good criterion of the im- portance of a place, and wheu they realised the excellent train service here, it was evident the L.&N.W. Company were fully satisfied as to the growing popularity of Prestatyn. The property offered that day was unique in that it was built of a material entirely new to this district, viz., concrete blocks. v After speaking of the advantages of this material, Mr Jewell stated that it was very much in evidence on the Continent. The first lot consisted of a pair of semi-detached villas (one being already let at J628 per annum). The highest bid was £ 750 at which figure it was withdrawn. A pair of bungalows fared simi- larily, the only offer being t700, and there was no bid for over 4000 square yards of land. The conditions of sale were read by Mr J. Holland Roberts (of Mr Foulkes-Roberts' office).
Death of an Old Inhabitant.
Death of an Old Inhabitant. On Thursday night the death occurred of Mrs Mary Hughes, 1, Gronant Terrace, at the ripe age of 81 years. Mrs Hughes, who had been ailing for some time, was one of the oldest inhabitants of Prestatyn, having lived here for over fifty years, and was much res- pected throughout the district. She was a very faithful member of the Wesleyan cause. The funeral will take place on Monday after- noon, interment being in Prestatyn Church- yard.
THE STRANDED WHALE.
THE STRANDED WHALE. To tlte Ellitn/" (4 the" Pl'c:;tat!f1/. Week/ DEAR SIR,- —It will doubtless interest many of your readers to know that the large "fish" which has been lying on the beach at Prestatyn some weeks is a species of whale, and is in all probability the calf of the bottle-nosed whale which went ashore at Mostyn. Few animals, if any, exhibit higher maternal qualities than do the ccrtacea or whale tribe. Usually docile in disposition, a female whale becomes daring and even ferocious if robbed of her calf, and will with- out hesitation risk her life in an attempt to have that of her young. There is little doubt that in the present case, the calf was killed, probably by a fisher- man, and its mother, in her great anxiety to recover it, scoured the coast line, and;got into water too shallow to allow of her return- ing to the ocean with the tide ebbing.—I cl am, yours truly, F. GILBERT SMITH.
Harvest Festival. The above is to be celebrated at the Parish Church on Thursday next, at 8 p.m. in English, and 7 p.m. in Welsh. The special 1, preacher will be the Rev J. Morgan, Llanrwst. -u_

The New Club House. The above is to be opened on Thursday next at 2-30. for which ceremony invitations have been issued. The afternoon's pro- gramme includes competitive events for ladies and gentlemen.
"Town Advertising Association."
"Town Advertising Association." Some few months ago a concert was held in the Town Hall, the proceeds of which, a,s stated on the announcements, were to be devoted to a fund "in aid of Town Advertising Association. With such a laudable end in view many were induced to support the concert who otherwise would have been little interested, and now that the event is a thing of the past they are desirous of knowing to what extent (if any) the above-mentioned object will benefit. Perhaps the information will shortly be forthcoming.
"Rehoboth," C.M. On Saturday evening at Towyn, and all day on Sunday and Monday at Rehoboth" the annual preaching meetings connected with the C.M. cause will be held, the special preachers announced to be present including the Rev. Puleston Jones, M.A., Pwllheli, and Rev. David Jones, Maerdy, Pontypridd.
The Main Roads.
The Main Roads. At Mold on Wednesday, several representa- tives of the various urban and rural authorities in the county met the Mtin-Roads Committee y I of the County Council with reference to the maining and dismaining of certain roads. Representatives of the Prestatyn Council were in attendance, on whose behalf the case was presented by Mr T. J. Scott, J.P., (chairman). Nothing definite has been arrived at, as the matter will have to be further discussed by the Main Roads Committee.
Constitutional Club. This organization commences its winter session on Wednesday next, when a whist drive is to take place at Hopwood's Cafe.
Postponed. The concert which had been arranged to be given on the 10th instant by the children attending the Council School has been post- poned.
The Cricket Club.
The Cricket Club. A meeting of the committee of the Cricket Club was held on Wednesday night, presided over by Councillor W. Inglefield. The balance sheet of the past season, submitted by Mr L. W. Watts (the hon. sec.), shewed a small deficit, but was considered satisfactory seeing that the club had purchased so many new appliances this season, which had meant a heavy expenditure. The balance sheet was adopted, and it was pointed out that the club would be able to commence next season with very little outlay.
TRINITY CHURCH. ---
TRINITY CHURCH. On Sunday the harvest thanksgiving services were held, the church being suitably decorated with fruit, vegetables, and flowers.

The annual church meeting will be held this (Friday) evening, when arrangements for the winter's work will be made, and the treasurer's statements of accounts read.
The One-Wheel Coach.
The One-Wheel Coach. This novel car is gaining a world-wide reputation, for in this mouth's "Strand Magazine" appears a photograph of the coach (taken by J. T. Burrows) with its team of boys and girls, and included in the group is the inventor. The notice states :— This vehicle is the invention of Mr P. A. Williams, Meliden, Prestatyn, North Wales, and is peculiar in that it has but one large central wheel, the motive power being supplied by a team of boys and girls hitched to a shaft or pushing bar. A dozen passengers, including driver and guard, can be accommo- dated, and one of the features claimed for the conveyance is its safety, the children being but a few inches from the ground. The coach has to be correctly balanced, and is provided with skids' on either side. It has proved a source of great enjoyment to the school-children in the village."
