BRIWSION. Nes elin nay arddwrn Dychrynwyd ceffyl y dydd o'r blaen gan fodur Esgob Peterboro, nes troi y drol oedd yn Ilawn o lo. Disgynodd yr Esgob o'r modur yn ebrwydd, tynodd ei got, a chynorthwyodd a'i holl egni i ail-lwytho y glo i'r drol. Wel, dyna frawdoliaeth gyffredinol ymarferol, onide mewn difrif ? Pan ydoedd Mr Lloyd George yn dychwelyd i Lunden o Gynhadledd Rhyl, aeth un o weision y Rheilffordd ato yn y Stesion, a dywedodd, Y mae pawb o honom yn disgwyl wrthych chwi y dyddiau hyn Mr George." Ysgydwodd Llywydd Bwrdd Mas- nach ei law yn gynhes, ac attebai o dan deimlad dwys Yr wyf yn gwneud fy nghoreu drosoch frawd, ae yr wyf yn ryw obeithio na chewch mo'ch siomi."

The Gilchrist Lectures.
The Gilchrist Lectures. A public meeting in connection with the series of Gilchrist Lectures to be delivered at Prestatyn early next year, was held at the Council School, Gronant, on Wednesday. The Rev. W. Bell (Hon. Sec. to the Lecture Committee), and Mr Chas. L. Roberts, atten- ded on behalf of the Prestatyn Committee, and Mr Bell explained the methods of the Trust and its system of popular lectures, and appealed for the hearty co-operation and assistance of the people of Gronant. The Rev. Edward Jones genially presided. Although the attendance was sparse, a most enthusiastic meeting was held. and the gentlemen present formed themselves into a committee and pledged themselves to promote the success of the lectures. Mr Fidler was appointed Honorary Secretary. It was pleasant to see the interest displayed, as the object of the Trust is to provide lectures for artisans such as make up the larger proportion of the population of our villages.
' My Visit to Canada."-
My Visit to Canada." A lecture on this subject was delivered by he Rev. Edward Jones, Gronant, in the C.M. jhapel. In the unavoidable absence of Mr J. M. Edwards (who sent a substantial dona- tion), the chair was taken by Mr Hugh Hughes. The lecturer held a large gathering interested for an hour and a half, with a speech full of humour and fine personal touches, Mr Jones pointing out the advantages ?' that Canada held out to the intending emigrant. It was, he said, a land where there was plenty of room, plenty of work, plenty of scope, and plenty of health. The subsequent votes of thanks went to show that the lecture had not only interested his hearers, but had created a desire in many to become smigrants and seek field for labour in a land that had been so vividly pictured that evening. The lecture was delivered in good homely Welsh, well within the comprehension of all. It is to be hoped that Mr Jones will again have an opportunity of lecturing on the same topic. B. S. FIDLER.

Mutual Improvement Society.
Mutual Improvement Society. The above Wesleyan organization had a most successful meeting on Wednesday evening, presided over by the Rev. E. Mostyn Jones. There was a crowded attendance, and the subject of -1 Should women have votes?" was warmly debated. The affirmative side was held by Mrs S. Jones, the negative being entrusted to Mr Richard Williams. Others who took part in the debate included Mrs Owen, Mrs Edwin Roberts, and Messrs J. Evans, T. Lee Williams, J. T. Hughes, and Edwin Roberts. On a vote being taken there was a smal! majority in favour of exten- ding the franchise to women. At the next meeting the question for debate will be "Is there need for two Houses of Parliament."

The Bible Classes
The Bible Classes which, hitherto, have proved such a conspic- uous success in connection with the C.M. cause, have commenced again under the supervision of the Rev. R. P. Hughes, and there is every indication that the good record secured in regard to attendance will be main- tained during the present session.
Death of an Old Inhabitant.
Death of an Old Inhabitant. A correspondent writes In the death of Mr Edward Edwards, Bryny- felin, last week, there has passed away one of the few surviving miners who were engaged at the Talargoch mines. He had been ailing for some months, and was 72 years of age— very old when we consider that the average miners at the leadworks were old at 52, and most of them for generations did not even attain that age. The want of fresh air, the poisonous gases of the metal and powder, and the walking up the ladders for say 300 yards, before the carriers came to use," carried its fatal effect on the miners, and they died young. I suppose Ed. Edwards worked as hard and as long in Talargoch as anyone in the parish. He was undoubtedly one of the best all-round miners that descended the old works. Very genial and quiet, he could command the best men to partner with him, and almost unfailing- ly could perceive the right spot to venture, and would always strike out for the lead and secure a good bargain" for himself and partners. He was above the average in point of intelligence, as well as in stature, standing 6ft. 2ins. and would have made a smart Life- guardsman had he aspired to that position. Churchman by religion, and very modeiate in politics, he was a man who brought the best common-sense to bear on any ques- tion that was introduced to him. He was an ideal workingman, both in his qualities as a workman, in his unimpeachable conduct, and in the intelligence he evinced in discussing any current topic. He leaves three daughters and one son to grieve his loss.

Mostyn Jones, with Mr Lewis Hughes as ] Vice-President, Mr Joseph Jones, Treasurer, and Mr John Hughes, Secretary, a committee being also appointed. A most interesting. syllabus has been prepared.

At the evening meeting several addresses were delivered upon the "Sunday School: its work, its workers and their reward." The subject was opened by Mr Owen, Gwespyr. and followed by Messrs P. Williams (Green- field), Richard Thomas (Holywell), and John Jones (Gwynfa). A recitation was given by Mr E. Pearson, and a solo by Mr E. Lloyd. The meetings were most satisfactorily sus- tained, and the children did their share very creditably. Mr Jones (Berthen), enquired into the position of the School, and was in- formed that it had been strenghened by 16 new members during the year.

Died on His Way Home.
Died on His Way Home. On Monday the funeral of ex-Sergeant Nelson took place at Meliden. It will be remembered that a few years ago he was stationed at Mostyn, and after being in the force for about 30 years he retired. Ex- Sergeant Nelson had been to Canada to visit his daughter, and he was taken ill on the return journey, as a result, it is stated, of hurrying for the steamer. He died soon after getting on board, and his remains were brought to Meliden to be interred. The funeral was attended by a number of district police.
Lantern Lecture. At the Wesleyan Chapel on Wednesday last week a lecture on Palestine was given by Mrs Hopwood (Llanasa), with lantern illustrations by the Rev. R. Hopwood. The chair was taken by Mr A. E. Jones, Brynteg. Some splendid views were shewn on the screen, these being fully explained by Mrs Hopwood. There was a very large attendance, and the lecture was much appreciated, the light shewn on scriptural history being a con- siderable help to Sunday School workers. A hearty vote of thanks was accorded Mrs Hopwood, Rev. R. Hopwood, and the Chair- man, on the proposition of Mr J. B. Thomas, seconded by Mr W. Griffiths.
The Council School.
The Council School. There are now 109 scholars on the register of the above school, and a good average attendance is maintained. This speaks well for the diligence of Mr Thomas, the head master. The school staff is to be increased.

FOOTBALL NOTES. Prestatyn Rovers v United. The Rovers sustained their first defeat on Saturday, when they played the United on the Marine Road Ground, the latter winning by three goals to one. The Rovers were first to score, LI. Hughes running down the wing and scoring a good goal. The Reds continued to press, but their efforts were not awarded with good results. The United now showed up and had a penalty, which Jones saved. Although the Rovers were hard pressed their defence was sound, 0. Jones keeping an exceptionally good goal. Half time came with the Reds leading by one goal. The second half opened as fast as the first had been, the United again troubling the Rovers' defence, but they failed to find the net until twenty minutes from time when J. Roberts scored. Five minutes later A. Jones scored a second, J. Roberts adding a third. Final United 3, Rovers 1. When it is taken into consideration that the Rovers were playing against a side of twice their weight, including three of the pick of the Thursdays, it cannot be wondered at that they were beaten. But they fought hard, and kept the lead they had gained until three-quarter time arrived, when the superior weight (which was freely used) was too much for the Rovers. In goal O. Jones played a fine game, Parry for the United not being so safe. The backs on both sides played well. H. Hughes and W. Ellis were the pick of the halves, the United trio being weak. The forwards were a dashing lot, the Rovers being especially noticeable for their good runs down the wings. FORWARD.
