A Financial Success. The balance sheet of the sports recently held at Prestatyn was read at a meeting held at Hopwood's Cafe on Tuesday evening. The nett profit amounted to overjBIC, and this sum was equally divided between the Cricket and Football Clubs. The meeting (which was under the chairmanship of Capt McDonald) passed a vote of thanks to those who so generously subscribed to the fnnd in both money and goods, and as the event had proved such a success it was hoped it would be made an annual affair. All those who gave such valuable assistance were heartily thanked for their services, the joint secretaries (Messrs D. J. Davies and J. P. Linnell) being specially mentioned, as was also the chairman. Colonel Moore has written the committee thanking them for arranging the sports, and expressing the hope that if the brigade came to Prestatyn next year the sports would again be held.
Classical Concert. s There was a crowded atteudance at the N concert in the Town Hall on Tuesday s evening, when the programme was sustained ( by Backhaus, the renowned pianist, and Madame Ella Russell.
Golf. 1 Last Saturday there was a bogey sweep- ( stake competition, in which a goodly number 1 took part, and there were some interesting games. The winner was Mr W. P. Richard- son, who finished all square with bogey, and the second was Mr Hoyle with only one i down. Mr Hoyle is captain of the Bramhall Park, Manchester, golf club.
Scholars' Success. The result of the recent scholarship ex- amination has just come to hand, and of the eight scholarships offered in Group II (which includes the public elementary schools at Prestatyn, Meliden, Dyserth, Rhuddlan, Newmarket, and Gronant) four have been secured by pupils of the Prestatyn Council School as follows Elsie J. M. Wynne ( £ 4), S. Trevor Roberts ( £ 3), Kate Jones ( £ 2), and Florence Jones (£2). This is highly creditable, and the headmaster (Mr G. W. Jones) and his staff are to be complimented on the success of their pupils.
Farewell Sermons. The Rev W. 0. Evans, minister of the Rhyl Wesleyan circuit, will deliver his fare- well sermons at Bethel next Snnday, preaching both morning and evening. He is leaving the circuit at the end of this month for Liverpool. During his three years ministry here he has done very good work, and although his health has failed him during the last few months, he is making good pro- gress towards recovery.
Benighted. Among the improvements which are badly needed in our town are a few additional gas- lamps, judiciously placed. Seldom or never do complaints come from Bryneithin Avenue, but a resident therein now mildly suggests that the name should be slightly altered so as to read Benighted Avenue." The trees which are so picturesque in the daytime serve at night to accentuate the darkness. Cer- tainly we have the moon at least once a month, but surely the town can afford a little more artificial light, both here and in other places. Our main road to Meliden is altogether minus a light except just at the entrance to High Street.
Society Entertainer's Visit. Lady Mostyn of Talacre has very kindly promised to preside at Mr Harrison Hill's humorous and musical recital on Sept 2nd.
Street Collections. A communication was received by the Council from the Denbigh Infirmary asking the Council's permission to make street col- lections here on Saturday in aid of the Infirmary. Mr Linnell proposed that permission be granted. It was an excellent institution, and people in this neighbourhood derived benefit from it. Mr Scott thought that if a sort of Hospital Saturday was to be started, the Rhyl Hospital should combine with Denbigh and share the collections. After further discussion Mr Banks seconded Mr Linnell, and the permission asked for was granted.
Additional Police. The question of tho need for an additional constable to be stationed here permanently had occupied the attention of a committee of the Council, and it has been decided to make application to this effect to the Flintshire Joint Committee.
Open-Air Services. These services, organized by the local Free Church Council, are being held each Sunday evening on the shore.
Prestatyn Council. MONTHLY MEETING. At the monthly meeting of the Council, ? held on Monday, the proceedings were almost ( entirely formal, the whole of the minutes s being passed without discussion. Mr Thos. r Hughes, J.P., presided, and there were also present Councillors T. J. Scott, J. B. Linnell, J.P., H. Wright, J. Cunnah, W. Inglefield, T. Parry Williams, W. Hilton, J. Banks, the Surveyor, and the Town Clerk. PLANS OF NEW BUILDINGS, ETC. Plans of two houses in Melyd Avenue for Mr Parry Williams, which had previously been deferred, were now passed. Plans of a house on the same estate for Mr Joseph Williams were approved, as also were additions to Miss Williams' bungalow. Plans of two houses in Meliden Road for Mr Lavender had been disapproved, as no ready means of access to the cesspools had been provided. Much correspondence had passed between the Surveyor and Mr Lavender on the matter, and eventually a sub-committee (con- sisting of Messrs Thos. Jones, T. J. Scott, and W. Inglefield) was appointed to meet Mr Lavender on the site and report. At a subsequent meeting of the Road Committee it was resolved that no arrangement be con- sidered satisfactory unless each house be connected to a separate cesspool in front. WATER MATTERS. The Surveyor had reported a defect in the filter bed, and that he was taking steps to replace a fractured valve. In the meantime only one filter was being used. The Sur- veyor's action was approved. It was decided to extend the water main along Norfolk Avenue, distance about 57 yards, the estimated cost of a two-inch main being £11.. LIFEBELTS ON THE FORESHORE. The provision of lifebelts on the foreshore had been under discussion, and the Road Committee had deputed Councillor Hilton and the Surveyor to interview the owner of the bathing vans and arrange as to the best positions in case of emergency. THE INSPECTOR'S REPORT. The Sanitary Inspector reported that the district maintains its immunity from infectious illness. A nuisance was reported to exist at Fforddlas Cottage, and it was decided to serve notice on the owner (Mrs Coward) to abate the nuisance by connecting and laying a drain to the sewer in the road. DEFERRED. The matter of the purchase of a tide indicator was left over until next spring. The question of carrying out certain Private Street Works had occupied the attention of the committee, but it was decided to defer the matter for the present. THE OBSTRUCTION ON THE SANDHILLS. A communication was received from Mr Grimsley on this matter, and it was stated a meeting of the representatives of the various Councils would be held at Rhyl on Thursday afternoon. Mr Linnell hoped the deputation would do all they could to have the obstruction removed. GENERAL IMPROVEMENTS. It had been resolved that the Road Com- mittee should inspect and report on the improvements most urgent and desirable within the district. The committee was to have met on Thursday, but at Monday's meeting it was decided to defer the matter so as not to interfere with the meeting at Rhyl referred to above. AUDITOR'S REPORT. The District Auditor (Mr Griffiths) wrote stating that he had audited the Council's accounts, which he certified as being correct, and referred to the Councillors to the financial statement for particulars. Mr Wright said the clerk was to be complimented on the excellent manner in which the Council's books were kept, and which enabled the auditor to give such a satisfactory report. MISCELLANEOUS. Mrs Rudge had written asking to be allowed to level off a few, feet of the ground in front of the parish quarry, to enable her to cart some heavy timber to the rear of her premises. Permission was granted, the work to be carried out under the supervision of the Surveyor, and -a charge of II- per annum to be made for the right of way through the the quarry. An offer had been received from the Elec- trical Engineer at Chester oaring for sale second hand lanterns at 4/- each. Councillor Banks and the Surveyor had inspected these, and a dozen were ordered. It was decided to offer the sum of C12 10/- to Messrs Hughes and Williams for the tar boiler and two rollers. The Surveyor was granted the usual holidays. THE COUNCILLORS CONFERENCE. At the conclusion of the public business, Mr Parry Williams reminded the Council that a deputation had recently attend a conference of Urban Councillors at Wallasey He would be glad to hear their report. The report appears in another column.

Death of Mr. Bradley. With painful suddenness the death occurred on Wednesday afternoon of Mr. Bradley, Terfyn. He had been in indifferent health for some months, but was able to get about, and had recently been travelling for his health. On Wednesday he was shooting iu the neighbourhood of his house when he broke a blood vessel, and had to be conveyed home. Dr Tudor Griffiths and Dr Heaton, St. Asaph (who happened to be at hand) were immediately in attendance, but Mr Bradley succumbed in a very short time. He was close on 50 years of age, and had lived here 6 or 7 years. He was a keen sportsman and a prominent member of the local Golf Club. He was a Freemason and a Conserva- tive. The funeral takes place at Prestatyn on Monday afternoon.
