BRIWSION. i'), iach a fo')t (I(li(l(loltii- bei-i i'r clcif gyweryd cys/ir." W Dywedai Esgob Llunden yn ystod ei bregeth i Fyfyrwyr Coleg Yale, ychydig ddyddiau yn ol, ei fod yn credu y gwelir cyn pen banner can mlynedd boll Eghvysi Cristionogol y byd yn un. WW Ffaith alarus ydyw nad oes dim sydd yn acbosi cymaint o amlieuaeth ac anffyddiaeth na'r anghydwelediad a'r cenfigen sydd yn bodoli cyd-rhwng gwabanol bleidiau Cristion- ogol. Fe ddywedir hefyd mai ar aclwydydd crefyddol y magwyd yr antfyddwyr enwocaf a mwyaf beiddgar welodd y byd erioed. Rhaid i'r ymddygiad fod yn gyson a'r brotJes ymbob cylcb, neu try yn felldith. WW Dair wytbnos yn ol, yr oedd un o'r prif newyddiaduron yn ymosod yn greulon ar Mr Lloyd George. Yr wythnos hon y mae yr un Golygydd yn yr un papur yn proffwydo y hydd Lloyd George ryw ddiwrnod yn Brif Weinidog Prydain Fawr. WW Yr oedd dwy eneth yn brysur iawn yn ym- ddiddan a'u gilydd, ac fel y mae arfer rhai hynacli na hwy, yn beirniadu on cyinydogiou. Meddai Manon: "W elaiRt ti fam hon a hon ? Nid oes ganddi ddanedd," Oes y mae," attebai Carys, gwelais hi yn eu cadw mown bocs." WW Ryw ugain mlynedd yn ol bu farw tenant fferm oddeufcu 60 erw, yn agos i Aberffraw, Mon, ar ystad Bodorgan. Penderfynodd Sir George Meyrick, y percbenog, ei gosod yn rhan-diroedd o ryw chwe erw yr un. Tystiolaeth Mr Pritchard, goruchwyliwr yr ystad, ydyw fod y tir hwnw yn werth m wy 0 lawer na phan yn cael ei amaethu gan un dyn. WW Dywed larll Carrington fod llai o ddeng mil o geffylau wedi eu magu yn y wlad hon eleni nag y llynedd, ac y bydd yn rhaid gwneyd rhywbeth er celnogaetli i amaethwyr i fagu. Un peth y mae yn ei awgrymmu ydyw fod y Llywodraeth yn prynu cetfylau pan yn dair oed at wasanaeth y Fyddin, ond fod y gwerthwr iw cadw a gofalu am danynt am en gwaith hyd nes y byddant yn bump. WW Yr oodd gweinidog ieuaingc wedi ei wahodd i bregethu i gynulleidfa o Saeson, ac o bosibl er gadael argraff ar ei wrandawyr ei fod yn gwybod cryn lawer mwy na hwy, adroddai mewn hwyl fawr amboll adnod neu benill yn Gymraeg gan feddwl y tybient mai Groeg neu Hebraeg ydoedd. Cyn diwedd yr oedfa gwelai ymhen eithaf yr addoldy wr yn gwenu yn chwareus. Trodd y pregethwr ato, ac a-ppeliodd mewn ton ddifrifol—"Wei di, gyfaill, os Cymro wyt, cau dy geg er mwyn y Wyddfa Weu fawr." WW Allan o bob 100,000 o drigolion y wlad hon y mae 205 yn marw bob blwyddyn or darfodcdigaeth. Y prif achos o hyny ydyw awyr afiach yu y cartref, yn y gweithdy, ac yn yr addoldy, a hyny am nad yw pobol yn ceisio deall egwyddorion cyntaf ventilation. WW Dyma i chwi sylw gwreiddiol gan bregethwr cynorthwyol, sydd heddyw yn Faer tref nid anenwog yn Nghymru Yr wyf am son wrthych heddyw am Dafydd a Goliath, fy nghyfeillion i. Y mae llawer o ddadleu wedi bod ymlith prif ddysgedigon pob oes gyda golwg ar y cwestiwn pwysfawr.—"Paham y cymerodd Dafydd bump o gerrig llyfnion i fyned i gyfarfod a Goliath. Wel, chwi welwch fy nghyfeillion, fe gymerodd yr ail garreg rhag ofn iddofethu ar gyntaf, a'r drydedd rhag i'r ail fethu, a'r bedwaredd os methai y drydedd, a'r burned os methai y bedwaredd." "Both pe methai y medd ryw Thomas o arnheuwr yn y gynulleidfa yma. "Wei gyfaill, dyma fel can odd y bardd yn Saesneg: He who fights and runs away, Will live to fight another day.'
Children's Sunday Last Sunday was a day specially set apart by the Welsh Wesleyans throughout the country for the Sunday School children. At I- Horeb in the morniug the Rev. E. Mos- tyn Jones preached an appropriate sermon, and in the afternoon the children were ad- dressed by Messrs Peter Hughes (conductor), Thos. Williams, Bobt. Jones, and J. Thomas. Hymns were rendered by the children, and Misses Ellen Williams and Eunice Williams contributed solus, Mr Robt. Thomas playing the violin. Miss Gwladys Williams read a paper on The Liie of Christ." In the evening Mr Robt. Griffiths (Rhuddlan) catech- ised the children on Bible History. All the scholars wore a white ribbon badge, presented by Miss M. E. Hughes (Compton), who also acted as accompanist.

Gilchrist Lectures at Prestatyn.
Gilchrist Lectures at Prestatyn. A public meeting was held in the Corona- tion Hall on Monday evening, in connection with these lectures. Mr John Williams, J.P. (liosslyn), who is always to the front in matters of local education, presided, and the Rev. O. J. Davies, M.A., Rev. W. Bell, and Mr Bobt. Jones, of Prestatyn, addressed the meeting. The Bev. 0. J. Davies deplored the ex- cessive attention which young men gave to football aud frivolous amusements, to the exclusion of intellectual pursuits,and welcomed these facilities for the spread of scientific knowledge and the development of persona! character. The Rev. W. Bell gave a graphic sketch of the wonderful life of Dr. Gilchrist and the objects of the trust he founded to provide education for working people. The total cost of the present course of five lectures would be sixpence. The lecturers were recognised authorities in their special departments, and their treatment of their subjects was fascina- tingly interesting and simple. If a sufficient number of tickets was sold in Dyserth and neighbourhood, of which he had every hope, a special motor would run from Prestatyn on the nights of the lectures. Mr Bobert Jones, speaking in Welsh, urged the young people of Wales to come down from the clouds and apply themselves to a study of the wonders of nature. On the proposition of Mr Charles Thomas, seconded by Mr G. H. Edwards, the Pres- tatyn visitors were cordially thanked for their attendance and addresses, and a similar com- pliment to the chairman closed the proceed- ings. Further particulars and tickets will gladly be supplied by the local secretary, Mrs G. H. Edwards, Dyserth.

Football Notes. Prestatyn Rovers were at home to Bhuddlan on Saturday. Losing the toss the Rovers played against the wind and sun, and from the centre kick Bennett scored for Prestatyn. The Rovers forced play on the left, and later A. Coward scored, half time arriving with two goals in favour of Prestatyn. With 'the wind behind them the Beds pressed hotly, but the Rhuddlan defence kept them out for a time. Bennett got possession and scored a good goal, and a few minutes later he scored a fourth. Five minutes from time LI. Hughes scored Prestatyn's fifth goal, Bhuddlan failing to find the net.

Fire at Penyffordd.
Fire at Penyffordd. On Monday evening, a thatched cottage, in the occupation of Mr John Blytliin, caught fire, and but for the timely assistance of Messrs Isaac Davies, Isaac Hughes, T.Hughes, and a few others, would probably have been burnt to the ground. The fire originated in the straw-roof, and before the arrival of help, the family turned their attention towards rescuing the household effects. A crowd soon gathered and effective steps were taken, under the direction of Mr Lewis Williams, to prevent the fire spreading, by removing the burning portion of the thatch, and clearing it on to the ground, while water-carriers put it out. The position of those on the roof was not an enviable one amid the volumes of smoke that enveloped them, but by great efforts the fire was got under control. A large portion of the roof was ruined, and the furni- ture was badly damaged.
Memorial Service. At the Wesleyan Chapel last week a memorial service to the late Mr Owen Owens was held. The chapel was crowded, and the funeral sermon was preached by the Rev E.

LADY MOSTYN'S LETTER. - -…
LADY MOSTYN'S LETTER. I At last Friday's meeting of the Holywell I I Board of Guardians, a letter was read from Lady Mostyn, of Talacre, requesting the ] Board to refund to her the cost of the educa- I tion of pauper children at her Talacre School, r- and she also stated that she would not re- ceive such children in future unless the Guardians arranged to pay for their education. The Chairman (Mr J. Prince) said their duty seemed plain enough. All children in elementary schools could claim free education. If the children could not get free education in the Talacre School, they could get it at another close at hand in the parish. It was their duty to acknowledge Lady Mostyn's 1 letter and say that in future they would see that the children attend the Council School. Mr Humphreys Are there any arrears due for the time they have been there ? The Chairman If we are in honour bound to pay any arrears, I hope the Board will pay them. The Clerk The letter is so vague, one really does not know what she wants. It was decided to inform Lady Mostyn that if she intended charging for the children at the Talacre School, it was the duty of the Guardians to see that they had free education. and in that case they would be transferred to the Council School, or the relief pay stopped.
Lecture at C.M. Chapel.
Lecture at C.M. Chapel. On Tuesday evening the Rev Hugh Roberts. Hoy well, delivered a most interesting Welsh lecture on his experiences as a missionary in India. The chair was occupied by Mr Ed. Jones, Saron, and the lecturer kept the large audience highly interested for a couple of hours. Exactly 43 years ago the rev. gentle- man, his wife, and two others started from Liverpool to take up missionary work in the Khassia Hills, four months being taken in reaching Calcutta. Arrived at his destination Mr Roberts stated he had many drawbacks, and at times became disheartened, but he was glad to say that the fruit of the labours of his predecessor (Rev Thos. Jones), him- self, and others was now apparent, there being over 30,000 converts. A pathetic part of the story, which touched the audience deeply, was the fact that Mr Roberts had buried his wife and two children while out there. During the lecture the rev. gentleman gave several examples of Khassia singing. At intervals the Trelogan Male Voice Choir (leader Mr W. Boberts) successfully rendered selections. A hearty vote of thanks was accorded all concerned, on the proposition of the Rev. E. Pierce. The proceeds were in aid of the children's clothing club, towards which a handsome donation was received from the chairman.
