THE PARISH CHURCH.
THE PARISH CHURCH. Thursday's Harvest Thanksgiving. At Christ Church in the afternoon there was a very large congregation at the English service, when the preacher was Rev. Dan. Edwards, M.A. (formerly Vicar of Rhyl), who delivered an eloquent and appropriate sermon. The Rev. O. J. Davies, M.A. (Vicar) intoned the service, which was particularly bright throughout, the singing being thoroughly congregational. In the evening there was a Welsh service when a stirring sermon was preached by the Rev. Ben. Thomas, B.D. (Bleanau Festiniog). The congregation was not so large as in the afternoon, but the service was none the less hearty, the hymns sung being chosen from among the old Welsh favourites. The church had been very beautifully and appropriately decorated with fruit, ilowers, corn, and vegetables, by Misses Davies (Vicarage). Davies (Kern Bank), Livesey, Harrison, Pownall, Mesdames Tickle, Gratton, Williams (Woodbine), Misses Jones (Croft), Lloyd, Howe, Provis, Munn, Thornton, M. Miller, and L. and G. Coward. After the Welsh service Miss M. Pascall gave an organ recital, and solos were rendered by Miss M. Dunning (Colwyn Bay). The thanksgiving services will be euutinnod on Sunday, and the Rev. Dan Edwards will preach in English in the evening.

There were also good collections in all the meetings.
THE GIRLS' GUILD.
THE GIRLS' GUILD. On Wednesday the Girls' Guild commenced its session with a social evening. The first half-hour was given to music' and recitations, all of which were much enjoyed. The President's speech followed, and then came the treat of the evening—a most delightful talk with the girls from Mrs Griffiths (Holywell). She told them from her personal knowledge about girl-life in India, and urged them to live up to their privileges and to prepare themselves by earn- est efforts to become worthy wives and mothers. Refreshments followed, and a useful and happy evening was brought to a close. Should all the promises be kept, the mem- bership will reach fifty--more than double that of last year. Mrs Lloyd Jones (assisted by Miss C. Middleton) is in charge of the plain needle- work and dress-making. Miss F. Jones of the singing class; the Secretary (Miss Eastman) of a class for reading and writing. Bible lessons, health talks, and addresses are part of the sessions programme. Mrs Hunt very kindly offered a prize to the member who should be most regular in her attendance. Other prizes will be awarded during the session, for Bible know- ledge, needlework, and recitations. Ladies interested in the Guild will be cordially welcomed as visitors, and may become asso- ciate members and subscribers. The Guild meets every Wednesday evening in the schoolroom of the Presbyterian Church.

| INTERESTING ITEMS. | A Heavy Rainfall. In eight days. commencing with Wednes- day, October 9th, the rainfall at Prestatyn has been 3'61 inches, the heaviest fall being on the 9th inst, when l-70 was registered. The significance of these figures can be the better realised when it is stated that the average rainfall per month is only two inches, or little more that half the fall on the nine days mentioned. Hillside Developments. Extensive operations are at present being conducted on the hillside in connection with the development of the Mount Ida estate, which adjoins the Pendre estate on the south- ward and eastward side A road is being formed in continuation of Linden Walk, the gradient here being com- paratively easy. After continuing a short distance uphill, the road curves to the right and finally runs directly parallel with the hillside. This at present is the scene of operations, there being plenty of Pioneer Work. Mr Wright and his staff of men are busily engaged in pioneer work on ground the nature of which varies greatly in character. In one place the soil lies several yards deep in another, limestone and other rocks have to be tackled by the aid of gunpowder. Quan- tities of fossils and ore-bearing quartz arc daily brought to light by means of the pick and shovel. Ideal Building Land. The end of all this will be a splendid new road, both sides of which are already available as building sites. Mr Gilbert Smith, the architect in charge of the estate, has divided a portion of the laud into building sites, and early developments are looked for- ward to. New Poets' Corner. Residents "on the flat" continually hear poetic hill-dwellers enlarge upon the georgeous sunsets visible from their vantage ground, and wax enthusiastic over the glorious and ever- varying scene lying at their feet. The opening of Mount Ida estate will provide an opportu- nity to many of sharing in the advantages of a situation where" every prospect pleases." It seems very probable that a cluster of hill- side villas will eventually become one of the leading features of the place. Cheaper in Prestatyn. From a district near Sydney, Australia, comes a copy of the Burrangong Argus." Although the news published therein is less in quantity than that appearing week by week in this paper, yet the price is threepence per copy. It is difficult to understand why this should be so, unless it is the result of Australian tariff" reform." Induction of Rev. W. Lewys Davies. The publication under notice contains an account of a large gathering of members of St. Paul's Presbyterian Church, assembled for the purpose of welcoming their new minister the Rev. W. Lewys Davies, who had been inducted into the Young-Bland charge. Most Prestatynites will recollect with pleasure Mr Lewys Davies' connection with the minis- terial work of this town. An elder of the church, who occupied the chair, said that Mr Davies had already won the respect and goodwill of the people, and he (the speaker) was sure this would continue to grow. During the proceedings Mr Davies was presented with the minister's gown, and in responding said that he would endeavour to unite with the clergymen of other denomina- tions in the higher sphere of church duty, the sowing of the seed of Christianity, and the spread of its good work. Impressions of Australia. We are delighted with New South Wales and its people-a wonderful country," says Mr Lewys Davies. It is satisfactory to note, also, that notwithstanding the many at- tractions of the country of his adoption, Mr Lewys Davies still keeps in touch with Old North Wales. "I got I Prestatyil Weekly' regularly, and am much interested in the doings of Prestatyn citizens." Possibly we may hear further news of Mr Davies, his family, and cause, as time goes on. Subscriptions Wanted. The stormy weather of the past week or so has caused considerable inconvenience to many of the passengers by the motor train owing to the tack of any description of shelter at three out of the four stopping places on the route. Attention has often been drawn to this long-felt want, but without effect. It may be that a poverty-stricken railway com- pany is waiting for a public subscription to be opened to defray the cost of these much- required shelters Anyway, a very few pounds would provide this necessary con- venience. All are Invited. Rehoboth Literary Society open their winter session on Wednesday next, at 7-45 p.m., by an entertainment, to attend which all are heartily welcome. Re-opening of Council Schools. Prestatyn Council Schools re-open on Mon- day next, after three weeks enforced idleness. Preaching Meeting. At Bethel Wesleyan Church on Satur- day evening and all day on Sunday, the half- yearly preaching meetings were held, when the special preachers who took part in the services included Rev. Robert Curty (Rhyl), and Rev. D. M. Griffiths (Didsbury College). Rhyl Free Library. During tne past month 1019 books of fiction were issued from the Free Library. Mr W. Rees has given several works on "Photography" to the Library; a "North Wales Directory and Guide" has been received from the publishers, Mr J. A. Powell has presented copies of Cassell's Popular Edu- cator," the Cambridge University Press has sent twelve volumes of the "Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges," the Religious Tract Society has sent twelve volumes of its publi- cations, and Mr Llewellyn Lloyd has pre- sented a copper-plate engraving of John Lloyd, an old Flintshire worthy. Floods in the Vale of Clwyd. As the result of the recent rains, the greater part of the Vale of Clwyd between Denbigh and Rhewl is under water. The roads leading tojLlanrhaidr Station are impassable owing to the overflowing of the rivers Clwyd and Clywedog. Cattle and sheep have had to be gathered in, and many of the district roads and footpaths are flooded.
Not Sufficient Telegraph Business.
Not Sufficient Telegraph Business. Mr E. G. Simpson of Plas Talargoch, has 1 0 just received a letter from Mr J. Herbert Lewis, M.P., announcing the Postmaster- General's decision to concede a second delivery of letters in Meliden on week-days. Mr Lewis writes :—" I enclose a letter which I have received from the Postmaster- General in reply to the request for additional postal facilities at Meliden. I am gfad to know that although the Postmaster-General has not been able to see his way to grant the whole of the demand, the most important part of it, the second delivery of letters, has been conceded." The enclosure referred to runs as follows, dated from the G.P.O. London :— Dear Mr Lewis, With reference to your letter of the 6th of August last, in support of an application from Mr E. G. Simpson, of Plas Talargoch, Meliden, Prestatyn S.O., Flintshire, for additional postal facilities at Meliden, I am glad to say that I have been able to sanction arrangements for affording the desired second delivery of letters on week-days. J1 It appears from the inquiry that the cir- cumstances are not such as to justify the provision of a letter box in the village. The Post Office is, however, only 250 yards from the proposed site. A Sunday service could be established if the conditions prescribed by the regulations relating to the establishment of Sunday posts in country districts are fulfilled. I enclose a copy of the regulations, and on receipt of the prescribed resolution and assurance from the local authority for the district, which is under- stood to be the Meliden Parish Council, the matter will be further considered. I regret to find that the telegraph business of the neighbourhood is not large, and that the circumstances are not such as to warrant the additional expense which would be in- volved in affording telegraph facilities at Meliden.—Yours very truly, SIDNEY BUXTON."
The Parish Church.
The Parish Church. The English services which have been held on Sunday evenings during the summer months are now to be discontinued until Easter. The announcement has been received with regret by the large number of English residents in Meliden who have been attending these services. The order of services in future will be Morning, English evening Welsh.
The Long Evenings.
The Long Evenings. An enthusiasic meeting of parishioners (called by the Vicar) was held in the schools on Monday to consider what stops could be taken to provide social intercourse for the benefit generally of the inhabitants of the village. Several suggestions were put forward, and it was decided to hold a parochial tea early in November, and another outcome of the meeting was the decision to take steps to form a united choir. Committees were formed for those purposes, and Mr John Pierce was elected as hon. secretary for the choir.
Newmarket. Death. On Tuesday the death occurred at the early age of 26 years of Edward Morgan, son of Mrs Morgan, Ochr-y-Gup, after an illness extending over a lengthy period. Quite recently Mrs Morgan also lost a daugh- lu ter, whose death it will be remembered took place after an operation.
