Hill-side Lime-burning Case. This important case is being heard to-day (Friday) at the County Court, Rhyl, and a large number of witnesses from Prestatyn are in attendance. Messrs Hughes and Gasquoine and Mr Lewis Jones are the solicitors en- gaged, and barristers have been briefed on both sides. Up to time of going to press (2 p.m.) the case had not started, but it is understood to be next on the list.
Prestatyn Girls' Guild.
Prestatyn Girls' Guild. The Girls' Guild will commence its second Session on next Wednesday. The Members and friends will gather in the Guild Room at 6-30 for a social evening, refreshments will be provided, music and recitations rendered, and an address given by Mrs Griffiths (Holy- well). Present members, new members, and all who would like to join the Guild are cordially invited to be present.
" Bethel " Wesleyan Chapel.
Bethel Wesleyan Chapel. On Saturday evening and all day on Sunday the half-yearly preaching meetings will be held at this place of worship, when the special preachers will be Revs. Robt. Curry (Lihyl), and D. M. Griffiths (Didsbury College).
"Rehoboth" C.M. The annual preaching meetings of the C.M. denomination were held on Saturday evening at Towyn, and all day on Sunday and Monday at Rehoboth." The Rev Mostyn Jones (W) preached at Towyn on Saturday evening, and at Rehoboth the special preachers were the Rev Puleston Jones, M.A., Pwllheli, and Rev David Jones, Maerdy, Pontypridd. On the whole the attendance was good, there being specially large con- gregations in the evening. Despite the fact that the Rev Puleston Jones has been blind since childhood, he is a scholar of repute and a most able preacher, and he gave his hearers a most learned discourse. The Rev David Jones' sermons were equally impressive.
TRINITY CHURCH. Arrangements for the Winter's Work The annual meeting of the Trinity United Methodist Church was held on the 4th inst., Dr. Townsend presiding. The accounts of the Church,Sunday School, and other organis- ations were read, each shewing a satisfactory credit balance. Mr A. W. Jones was re-elected treasurer, Mr. H. Wright steward, and Mr J. T. Partington sidesman. The greater portion of the time was occu- pied in discussing the arrangements for the winter's work. It was decided to resume the monthly social tea meetings, the first of which will be held on November 7th. A committee was appointed to take the preliminary steps in the formation of a Literary Guild." (This committee has since met, and in addition to the provisional appointment of officers, has got together a very interesting syllabus of lectures, etc). It is proposed that the Guild shall meet each Friday. The Sunday School teachers and leaders are considering a proposal to commence a P.S.A. meeting. Mr Gilbert Smith is to form a class of a novel character for boys. Individual communion cups are to be adopted at services in celebration of the Lord's supper.
Death of Mrs. Catherine Roberts.
Death of Mrs. Catherine Roberts. We regret to announce the death of Mrs. [Catherine Roberts, Tudno," Maes-y-groes, Prestatyn (late of Bwlcligwyn), which occurred last Friday evening, at the age of 72 years. Mrs. Roberts had been living here for the last four years, with her daughter Mrs W. Jones, "Tudno," and had been ailing for some months. She was a faithful mem- ber of the Welsh Congregational Church, and was much respected by all the members and by her acquaintances, both in Prestatyn and at Brynteg and Bwlchgwyn, where she had been living. C, The funeral took place on Thursday, when a service was held at the house in the morn- ing, at which the Rev. Ben Williams officiated. Afterwards the family left with the remains for Llandegla, where interment was made in the family vault. Here, a large gathering of old friends and acquaintances of Mrs Roberts had come together to pay their last tribute of respect. The Rev. J. D. Jones, Brynteg, officiated at the cemetery. A memorial service will be held at the Congregational Church next Sunday evening, when the Rev. Ben Williams will preach.
Fechnical Instruction. 1
Fechnical Instruction. 1 The evening continuation classes which 'l were so successful last winter are shortly to ] 36 resumed, the subjects to be taken up .ncluding shorthand and book-keeping, needle- work, and music, the candidates are asked to send in their names to the local secretary (Mr John Hughes) not later than 18th instant. [t is to be hoped that there will be a large [lumber of pupils, as the advantages to be derived from these continuation classes are inestimable, and the movement deserves every support on the part of parents and employers.
Harvest Thanksgiving Services.
Harvest Thanksgiving Services. On Thursday next services of thanksgiving for the harvest are to be held in Christ Church (in addition to the Welsh Nonconformist places of worship), when the special preachers will be: at 3 p.m. (English), Rev Dan Edwards, M.A., Leicester 6-30 p.m. (Welsh), Rev Benjamin Thomas, B.D., Blaenau Festiniog. At 8 p.m., there will be an organ recital. No doubt it will be pleasing to many to note that the Rev Dan Edwards, who a few years ago was so popular as the Vicar of Rhyl, is to preach at one of the services, and probably several of his old parishioners will come to hear him.
The Harvest Holiday.
The Harvest Holiday. It has been the custom of late years (says the current issue of the Christ Church Pariah Mayazine) to have a general holiday for the purpose of giving our people an opportunity to unite in services of thanksgiving for the blessings of the harvest, but unfortunately the holiday is not observed according to its original intent. It is utilized to a great ex- tent for mere holiday purposes. The Rail- way Company organize cheap excursions to some of our large towns and cities, and these are very largely patronised. We think this is not as it should be. By all means let there be a general holiday to mark the close of the season..We feel sure our trades- people need it after their hard work during the summer, and facilities should be afforded them to enjoy a treat before the winter set in. But to use a day set apart for religious pur- poses for mere pleasure is, according to our way of thinking, certainly not right. Further, we consider it more convenient for each place of worship to arrange its own services to suit the convenience of its own congregation, since apparently it is not possible for all denominations to unite to hold their services on the same day.
Constitutional Club. The first of the winter series of whist drives was held on Wednesday evening at Hopwood's Cafe, but the stormy weather prevailing at the time announced for the gathering interfered considerably with the attendance. Fortunately for the club a large number of tickets had been previously dis- posed of. Those who did brave the elements speak of having had a very enjoyable time.
AN INVISIBLE-WHEEL CAR.
AN INVISIBLE-WHEEL CAR. To the Editor of the "Prestatyn Weekly." By means of the publicity given to the photo and description of the Melideu One- wheel Coach in the Curiosity column of this month's Strand, Magazine, a world-wide notority has been obtained for this novel vehicle. The leading principle of the one-wheel car is an indisputable success, both in its ease of draught, its facility of turning, and its simpli- city of construction, and inasmuch as it has acquired this success in its present imperfect state, after only a few months of trial, a much greater success awaits it under the improve- ments which will yet .be added. Inasmuch as the railway locomotive engine, with its six or eight wheels, has taken a little over a hundred years to bring to its present state of perfection, the one-wheeler may be pardoned for occupying only an equal number of weeks in its state of embryo. The improvements already suggested are :— (1) A concentration of the children's seats. (2) A reduction in both the width and the weight of the car. (3) The wheel to be reduced to two feet in diameter, and placed invisibly between the seats, the car to carry twelve children as at present. (4) Two skids only, of an improved pattern, fixed two inches above the roa,d level.-Yours etc., Meliden. P. k. WILLIAMS.

PRESTATYN GOLF CLUB. --
PRESTATYN GOLF CLUB. Opening the New Pavilion. Thursday marked an important advance in the history of the Prestatyn Golf Club, when an up-to-date golf house was opened for the benefit of members and other devotees of the game. The weather was-wet. This fact, however, was not allowed to interfere with the arrangements (which included several competitions), for various pairs of golfers were to be seen dotted here and there along the course, anon arriving at their journey's end in a drenched but more or less triumphant condition. A group of ladies also, apparently regardless of ruined millinery, were visible through the drenching rain vigorously putting on the green. The hall and verandah presented quite an animated appearance during the waiting-time prior to the speeches, the interval being occupied by tea-drinking and conversation. Miss Higgins provided the refreshments, and most of the available accommodation was fully occupied. In the absence of the Captain of the Club (Councillor J. Banks), Mr D. P. Morgan occupied the chair. He much regretted the unpropitious weather, but was pleased to see such a large muster of members and friends. Lord Mostyn (one of the vice- presidents), unfortunately, was unable to be present, and he (Mr Morgan), therefore, asked Mr W. Bulcock, J.P., to formally declare the Club House open (applause). Before performing the function, Mr Bulcock asked the hon. secretary (Mr Holland Roberts) to read letters from absent members. Among these was one from Lord Mostyn who stated that the other week he had the pleasure of playing on the course, and he congratulated the committee on its excellent condition. He was prepared to do all he could to further the interests of the club, and hoped to have the pleasure of frequently playing on the links (applause). Other letters were from Sir Chas. McLaren, M.P. (also representing Lady McLaren and Mr H. D. McLaren), regretting inability to attend owing to going abroad. Mr Frank Mortimer (Vice President) also wrote, com- plimenting the committee on the beautifully arranged Club House, and stating he was sure it would prove of great advantage to the members. Mr Bulcock then proceeded to declare the Club House open, and in doing so, he greatly regretted the absence of Lord Mostyn, and he was also sorry the elements were so un- favourable. Referring to the large company of lady visitors present he said there was one thing though which they could certainly con- gratulate themselves upon, and that was the bevy of beauty among them— (applause)- who had braved the elements to be present on that occasion. As to the Club House, he considered it a most suitable one, and was sure it would be a great boon to the members. Before concluding he desired to refer to the untiring efforts of Mr T. B. Griffith, to whom was due the credit that the links were in such excellent condition (applause). He had pleasure in declaring the Pavilion open. Mr J. B. Linnell, J.P., speaking on behalf of Lady McLaren said that when the links were first mentioned her ladyship entered into the proposal heartily, feeling sure a Golf Club would be the making of Prestatyn, and 0 y it gave every sign of doing so. Mr H. Riley, of Liverpool, spoke on behalf of the visiting members. He had visited Prestatyn for more years than he cared to remember, and now that there were links here the place would become better known, and a nice class of people would be induced to reside in Prestatyn. He thought that it lay in the power of the members to make the Club House still more complete and com- fortable by means of gifts, and he would be pleased to start that by presenting a time- piece (applause). With regard to Mr T. B. Griffith, he could testify to the enormous amount of work done by that gentleman, and the porfect condition of the links was principally due to his energy (applause). Mr Frank Jewell, on behalf of the Execu- tive Committee, thanked the company for their attendance, his remarks being supported by Mr T. B. Griffith. 0 Mr Holland Roberts proposed a vote of thanks to Mr Morgan for presiding. He said the club's record was a noteworthy one. The matter was not started until late in 1905, and the following February the lease for the links was signed. since then rapid strides had been made, so much so that by now, short time as it was, the links would compare very favourably with others. The committee were determined to do all in their power to bring the club to such a condition that it would not only rival but outrival any club on the coast (applause). The vote of thanks was seconded by Mr W. P. Richardson, and carried with acclamation. Regarding the result of the various com- petitions, the winners' names are not yet to hand. The building is of iron and timber, elevated on brick supports, has a verandah in front, with steps leading to two front entrances. The accommodation comprises large entrance hall or general assembly room, leading out of which aie a committee room, serving room, kitchen, and the usual dressing rooms. There is also the groundsman's working room. The whole is excellently arranged, and all the rooms are timbered and varnished inside. The work, which was carried out by Mr Thomas Jones, J.P., under the direction of Mr C. L. Roberts, reflects much credit on all concerned.
