Said a pompous husband, whose wife had <'M6a uPbehl¥] and given him a kiss— (< Madam, I consider such an act indecorous." "Excuse me," said the wife, "1 didn't know it was you." Married couples resemble a pair of shears, so joined that they cannot be separated often moving in opposite directions, yet always punishing anyone who comes between them. What city in France is a man about to visit when he goes to get married ?-He is going to Havre (have her;. An old bachelor being asked the question, promptly replied, "To Rouen (ruin.)

H Co. V.B.R.W.F. RIFLE CONTESTS. The annual shooting in connection with the Llangollen Volunteer Company took place on Saturday last, at the Abbey Range, under the direction of Captain J. C. Edwards, and Sergt.- Instructor Waltho. The weather was most un- propitious, more especially during the early part of the day. there being a strong wind, and occasional heavy downpours of rain: notwithstanding this, the character of the shooting was of an exceptionally high standard. A most pleasing feature of the programme this year was the presentation of a Challenge Cup, value 6 guineas, by Mr. Lashmore, watchmaker, Chapel-street, Llangollen, and Church- street, Oswestry. The cup previously in possession of the company, after having been competed for a great number of years, was last year finally taken by Private Sillery, he having succeeded in winning it three times in succession. It is needless to say that this handsome and generous gift of Mr. Lashmore's is highly appreciated by the officers and men of the company, who are also highly indebted to the same gentleman for previous presents made towards the Tradesmen's Prizes from year to year. It is also our pleasing duty to mention that the tradesmen of the town have this year, as usual, contributed most handsomely in kind and in cash towards the Tradesmen's Prizes. The following is the result of the shooting :— SILVER CHALLENGE CUP,presented by Mr. Lashmore, for all efficient members, 10 rounds at 200 and 500 yards, drill to count one point for each drill.

On Saturday the police removed from a cave on Hampton Down the remains of a young woman which had been discovered there by a son of Commander Brand, R.N., and another boy during their explorations. The corpse, which was well- nigh reduced to a skeleton, had been covered with stones. The skull had been fearfully battered in and the assumption is that the victim was first murdered and then dragged to the cave, which is situated in a very secluded spot. Part of the scalp remained on the right side of the head, to which a small quantity of brown hair was adhering. This was plaited. The woman had an excellent set of teeth, only one, on the upper jaw, being missing. The remains were placed in a sack and removed to the George Inn, Bathampton. A singular fact in connection with the affair is that about two years ago a watch and chain and a pair of bloodstained cuffs and handkerchief were discovered near the "+1. ,C J.,1-- N iuuuuu. ujl but: cave, ane ponce on Saturday night obtained possession of some of the articles, which were in exactly the same state as when picked up, but they have failed to discover the gold chain attached to the watch found. The man who found the things is known in Bath as Colonel Dill." The watch was pawned and subsequently sold at a pawnbroker's auction. It has been discovered that a portion of the clothing bears the name H. Kerry," thus agreeing with the name found on the blood- stained handkerchief. Dill has informed the police that some time after picking up the watch, chain cuffs, and handkerchief, he found near the same place a walking-stick broken in two. Pieces of this stick have been recovered by the police and the knob bears a plainly visible dent. Though the materials to work upon are slight, it is understood that the police are not without hope that they will be able to clear up the mystery. On the feet of the female were a pair of small Oxford shoes, which were slightly rat-eaten, but were otherwise in good preservation. It was one of those shoes protruding above the ground which attracted the attention of the lads and led to the discovery of the body. At the inquest opened on Tuesday, Dr. Charles Harper said the remains were those of a young woman from 19 to 2fyears of age, and about 5ft, 2in. in height. There was a large fracture of the skull which could only have been effected by terrible violence. One foot was dislocated. He conjectured that the woman was thrown into the quarry and that she was either killed by the fall or was' first killed on the edge, and then thrown down and dragged into the cave.
CHIT-CHAT, PRIM & PITHY. A man died of starvation in Liverpool on Monday. According to the British Association, trade is reviving, and there is a bright time coming. The House of Commons adjourned on Fridav until Nov. 2nd, and the House of Lords until Nov. 9th. Fatal cases of cholera were reported on Monday from Hull and Newcastle, and again on Tuesday from Huil. The Conway and Llandudno magistrates refused to renew the licence of the Railway Inn, Conway, on Monday. It is calculated that six of our principal railway companies have already lost £ 1,200,000 through the coal strike. Harriet Wright, charged with childmurder at Whitchurch, has been committed for trial, but admitted to bail. The Chester Guardians are patriotic. They have decided that the only cheese used in the workhouse must hail from Cheshire. Kensington Oval is to be closed against the game of football this season. This is a great disappointment to the Metropolitan football clubs. Superior Judge William Conley, of California, is the youngest judge of any court on record in the United States. He is just 26 years old. All the licences adjourned at the Wrexham annual licencing session were granted on Monday-a six day licence, however, being taken out in every instance. It is said that the Everton Football Club pays X5 a week and £ 250 down to one of its players-John Southworth. Evidently play pays better than work these days. Lord Swansea has written declining the mayoralty of Swansea for next year. His lordship says he is prevented by his many other engagements, and by the advice of his medical men. The Penrhyn-Dinorwic Male Voice Choir landed at Liverpool on Monday from America, where they were suceessful in winning the second prize at the Inter- national Eisteddfod at Chicago. Captain Roberts, who was in the boat by the up- setting of which Lieut. Davies, Mr. Fanning, and the boatman, Henry Jones, were drowned in the Menai Straits on August 23rd, died at Portdinorwic, on Friday. The British India steamship Dunera, which has arrived at Plymouth, brought a lion and lioness, both splendid animals, with a couple of cnbs, which have been sent as a present to the Queen by the Sultan of Zanzibar. It is just recorded by the Postmaster-General that in the United Kingdom, last year, about 32,000 letters were posted without any address, and of these 1,955 contained cash, bank notes, and cheques of the value of £ 5,000. Mr. Herbert Lewis obtained leave in the House of Commons last week, to bring in a Bill to amend the law relating to the licencing of beerhouses and places for the sale of cider and wine by retail in England and Wales. The largest cargo steamer in the world was launched on Saturday from Harland and Wolf's yard at Belfast. This was the Cevic, a vessel built to the order of the White Star Company. The boat is designed for the cattle trade. Sir Charles Bowen, on being made a Lord of Appeal, has been granted the dignity of baron for life with the title of Baron Bowen, of Colwood, Sussex. Baron Bowen, it will be remembered, resided at Llantysilio Hall for some time. Notwithstanding the grave doubts to the contrary, one of the men entombed in the Dolcoath Mine, Cornwall, named Davies, was rescued on Friday. He bad been imprisoned 37 hours at a depth of 412 fathoms beneath the earth's surface. There were 13,000 less visitors at Douglas, Isle of Man, this season up to the end of August than during the same period last year, the numbers being 215,243. against 228,100. At Ramsey there was a slight increase of from 9773 last year to 10,366 this year. David Pugh of Drummer's Hill, Trefeglwys, was sent to gaol for 21 days by the Rhayader magistrates last week for knocking down a man named David Roberts of Welshpool, and sitting on his chest and biting his nose, because he would not walk up the street with him. At a meeting of the Bank of England Governors it was stated as an interesting fact that the capital employed in the United Kingdom in banking square, uonaon, early on Thursday morning, when a jiled lover named Mr. L. E. Percy, aged 25, in a mad fit of jealousy shot in the roadway a young lady a chorus girl, aged 25, named Bessie Montague, as well as her companion, a stockbroker named Mr. S. B. Garcia, aged 27, and then shot himself in the head. According to a return just issued no fewer than 375 public bills have been introduced into the House of Commons since the beginning of the present session (exclusive of Provisional Order Bills). This beats the record, the highest figure reached hitherto m 1888, Last year the total was 317: in 1891 it was 328; in 1890, 322; in 1889, 303; and in loo7, 617. On Thursday night, Andrew Whitlow, aged three years, son of a farmer at Hulton, Runcorn, obtained possession of a whisky bottle in the bedroom cup- board, and drinking some of the contents, became immediately unconscious. Drs. Carruthers and Ormsby were summoned, but despite their efforts the child succumbed at a quarter to ten the same night without regaining sensibility. Edward Henry Elliott, 35 years of age, a clergyman of the Church of England, was committed by the Wolverhampton magistrates on Tuesday for a month's imprisonment for vagrancy. The prisoner is indebted to the late Duchess of Sutherland for his education, and is possessed of considerable ability, but he has for some years given way to drink, and for some time has been in a condition of abject destitution. The prize of 100 dollars in money and a piece of land valued at 200 dollars, the gift of Mr. Henry Parry (first cousin to Mr. Henry M. Stanley and Judge G. W. Roberts) has been awarded to Mr. Charles Ashton, Dinas Mawddwy, at the Chicago Eisteddfod, for a "Handbook of short biographical sketches of the Welsh poets, with short criticism upon their poems, from William Lleyn (1560) to Gwilym Hiraethog." The death is announced in the 86th year of his age of Mr. Thomas Hawksley, the eminent civil engineer. Amongst the numerous undertakings with which he was connected must be enumerated the Vyrnwy water supply to Liverpool. It was upon his report that the scheme was adopted, and though he retired from it before its completion, much of the credit for the magnificent supply which Liverpool now enjoys is due to his sagacity. In the Cottenham district of Cambridgeshire a second crop of various kinds of fruit is being gathered. Green gooseberries have been secured during the last few days from one of the gardens and raspberries have in several places blossomed again and produced finer fruit than the first crop, while apple trees also show a fine second bloom. Some fruit growers are of opinion that the extraordinary occurrence will be prejudical to next year's crop. The Bolton police on Monday reported the death under mysterious h circumstances of a bookkeeper named John Nuttall, 35 years of age, of Stoneclough. He had travelled by a night train from Manchester" and was found lying unconscious in the carriage at Bolton. He was removed to the infirmary, and died there. The nature of his illness or the circumstances which led to his condition are unknown, as he remained in an unconscious state. The third volume of census returns for England and Wales, just published, supplies us with some interesting statistical information on the subject of migration between the two countries. It appears that the total number of Welsh residents in England is 228,616. In Liverpool there are 17,449 Welsh people, in Birkenhead 5,645, and in Manchester (including Salford) 9,463. These figures refer to the immigrant Welsh population only. A feud between union and non-union sailors has culminated at San Francisco in the former resorting to the use of dynamite. A bomb was exploded on Sunday in front of a lodging house occupied mostly by seafaring men not attached to the union. The premises were wrecked, and six of the inmates were frightfully injured. Two of these died almost instantly, while the others were so mangled and disfigured that very little hope is entertained of their recovery. Borwick's "Baking Powder Pure and Wholesome.

Thursday Evening. Mr. Harry Hyde Parker, son of Admiral Sir Henry Hyde Parker, accidentally shot himself dead at Chemainus, British Columbia, on Saturday night, while out shooting. There are signs that the coal strike is at an end. Two thousand miners at St. Helens have resolved to return to work, and at a special meeting of the Lancashire and Cheshire Miners' Association held at Manchester, yesterday, it was decided by a large majority to support the return of the men to work at the old rates of pay. The Pope, says a Central News telegram from Rome, having refused to recognise the King of Italy's right to appoint a Patriarch of Venice, the Government has decided to refuse its exequatur to all bishops nominated at the last Consistory, as well as to those that will be appointed at future Consistories. The prospect of a grave confliot between the Church and State is causing great excitement. Yesterday, at a meeting of the Ruabon District School Board, under the presidency of Mr. E. Hooson, of Rhos, it was resolved, with one dis- sentient, to apply to the Charity Commissioners to so amend their scheme for providing intermediate education in Denbighshire, as to prevent the formularies of any particular denomination being used, or the distinctive tenets of any particular denomination being taught in boarding houses or hostels which form part of the endowment of an intermediate school. It was decided unanimously to ask the commissioners to provide for the payment of third-class railway fares of school governors. » MR. GLADSTONE ON THE HOUSE OF LORDS, Mr. Gladstone travelled yesterday by special train from Blackcraig to Edinburgh, where he addressed a meeting of his constituents. The Premier began his speech by an allusion to those measures which more immediately concerned Scotland, and in a reference to the question of Scotch disestablishment, he expressed the hope that the Bill of Sir Charles Cameron might be accepted as an equitable and moderate settlement. There was a legislative famine in the land, he said, and the one barrier to legislation was the Irish question. The House of Lords was responsible for the present state of things, and they had been misled into creating a far graver crisis than any since 1831. It was not the doctrine of the con- stitution that a Ministry should resign at the bidding of the Lords he was not sure that tho Lords had not raised the question of their own independent and irresponsible existence. "If there is on the one side a determined nation," he said, the nation will not be baffled by a phalanx of 500 peers. (Cheers.) If the work of the country is done in the House of Commons if the deliberate will of the nation is expressed in the House of Commons if the House of Lords are irresponsible, whereas we hold a commission for which we must give an account-then, I say, we cannot give way to the House of Lords, although they bear high- sounding titles, and although they sit in a gilded chamber." Before another session had passed the whole subject would have been before the constituencies. Mr. Gladstone left Edinburgh this forenoon, en route to Hawarden. He looked remarkably well.
VAIN REGRET. An me! Too late now to regret, The echoes answer back Too late!" It is no use to weep and fret, She is not meant for me by fate. My fond love now is but a ghost Where once it was exceeding bright. I asked for her sweet hand by post; My rival called himself that night. Alack xne Why did I write on'WsbelSf, valli; 111 not propose by post again— "-—— Next time I'll telegraph.
IN MEMORIAM. TENDERLY, silently weave the immortelles In sympathy gentle to veil his dear tomb. Hushed be each murmer-thought, ye outside mortals The long sleep is over and he is at home. Over the sleeplessness, so sad and weary; Over the fearful dread of long future ill To manhood so young, yet nerveless and weary Appeals to your mercy-be silent, be still. Little ye knovV the forebodings he suffered When, night after night, he no sleep could obtain- Nature all weakened nerveless he stumbled As science suggested sure sleep to remain Weep with the mourners, ye fathers, ye mothers Ye aged whose sons are your strength and your pride Stern is the sorrow, known only by others Who have borne the same anguish at their eventide Carefully, prayerfully tread ye life's pathway Unknown your future all silent and dark. God knoweth all, whether rugged or smooth way And he will sustain you-His own vital spark. MRS. S. PHILLIS ATKINSON.
