POSTAL PUZZLES. INSTANCES OF DEPARTMENTAL PERSPICACITY, A couple of instances of postal perspicacity are reported from the Llangollen district. Among the letters which arrived at the Pontfadog Post-office during the week was one which may be described as a postal puzzle. In place of the usual address, the face of the envelope bore a sketch map of the district between Chirk and Pontfadog, including the Great Western Railway to Oswestry, viaduct 9e*r*0 £ > Holyhead Road, Chirk Church, Hand Hotel, audi all the prominent landmarks of f -*a t'18 l°ft-hand bottom corner wss printed 11 To postmaster at Chirk. Please follow the rod line until Pontfadog is reached. 0 indicates where this note is to be left. I forget name. Little wonder that, at first, the postmaster at Pontfadog was rather puzaled. Oa closer examination, however, it was found that there was a red line drawn from Chirk Post-office along the Glyn Valley Railway to Pontfadog, and at the end of the line was the 0, where the Swan Hotel is situated, and to the owner of this house the letter was rigbtiy delivered. A second letter, from Rawtensfall, was addressed" to a private individual, "c/o the Wynnstay Arms, Saint CoJlen-ap G-wynawg-ap GIYDdawg-ap Oowdra-ap Caradog Freichfras—ap Meirion-ap Eraiou-ap Cyneddfa Wiedig." The writer thus sets forth the pedigree of St. Collsn but it must have required cute Celtic perspicacity to discover that the destination of the letter was Llangollen, where it was delivered without delay.

"TIPYN 0 BOB PETII." Wa DO NOT JTBCH3SARILY nViXTIFY OU-RSBLVBS WITH TKB • riWIONJI OF OTTIl CORRBSPONDEXT. I WAS reading the other day of preparations for Wednesday night's great detaoascration at which "Joey "emphasised the evils of Cobdenism. An enquiring "Free Trader" discovered that a portion of the fire thousand chairs, specially provided for the audience, had "been made in Russia," aad bore legends to this effect beneath their seats. As a contemporary neatly puts it -those who desired to turn the tables on Mr. Chamberlain, at the demonstration, had only to turn the chairs. I am informed that at a Merioneth Urbaa t a 2- Council recently, a discussion arose as to the Council's one horse. One member, rather rocky in his English, suggested that the horse should be examined by a good vegetarian." There may bs more thaa appears on the surface in this suggestion. Vegetarians have long been on the look out for an article of diet that is neither fish, flesh, fowl nor good red herring, and I imagine that that Merionethshire ahorse might meet the requirements—if not, we have one or two donkeys left in Denbighshire. Here is a snippet from J lie World's fFork; as to gee-gee diet: "It is a recognised item in the German nation's food supply. There are thou- sands who rarely indulge in any other German food, not because they like it parti- culary, but because they are driven to use it by Stern necessity. There are sixty-four meat shops in Berlin where nothing else is sold. There is no attempt at concealment." Of course, many Will contend that these are anti-vegetarians and that equine fleah is flesh all the same. Let them get their teeth into a steak cut from the carcase of the worn-out motive power of a canal boat and they will tell another tale. The Times announced on Tuesday that the King had presented a Korean bull to the Royal Zoological Society of Ireland. The gift of a bull to Ireland is gracious, but seems super- fluous. We shall next hear of the King sending a ton of coals to Newcastle. There appears to be a certain amount of balm in Gilead. At last week's meeting of the Urban Council, I read, the Authority decided to have the parish pump put in a proper state, and to authorise an estimate to be issued for repairs. It Is somewhat of a pity to exhibit undue haste in dealing with this venerable institution. May I point out, however, thnt the pump will have to be converted, and turned round, before it will be possible for it to be worked. The Electic Light standard is too close to the handle to permit of the necessary "up and down movement." A pump without a handle is pitiable, but a pump with a handle that cannot be worked is a still more pitiable spectacle. There is an extremely ingenious individual* residing somewhere across the border, who is determined to test, the abilities of the Llangollen postal department. This week two instances are recorded of "twisters" he has sent; both of Which were successfully unravelled. Comnieut- ing thereon the Guardian states:— The people who delight in addressing their envelopes in uncommon ways and giving round- about directions to the postman in pictures and Wapg instead of in simple, plainly written, English are no doubt a funny race, who are immensely pleased by the quaint shapes that their hmnour takes. But the postman has a right to regard them as a nuisance, for they add to his already sufficient labours, and after a tramp of many his interest in silly conundrums is not quite as keen as that of the playful correspondents. One postal victim at Llangollen bas had to study A condensed Ordnance map which the writer had been at some pains to draw on the envelope, and by following a thin red line he finally discovered the proper destination of the letter. Another v correspondent addressed a letter to tbe Wynn- —:id instead of writing Llangollen D8 gave a more or lesb ubrapiete pedigree of St. Collen. People who are capable of doing these things will never be convinced that they are not humourists of the first class. We suppose they must be endured like other bores. One local denomination, at anyrate, has abundant cause to be thankful that Mr. Carneoie has turned his beneficent attention from libraries to organs. His secretary has just devoted thirty days to the preparation of a list of the amount e has spent on the former objects, and it amounts to £ 7,500,000. Like Mr. W. Pencerdd ■+W ms.'

FASHIONABLE WEDDING AT LLANGOLLEN. HEATON—EDWARDS. Bsautiful spring-like weather, with a bright Sllll shining upon the matchless panoramic picture of mountain and glen, whieh, &s anfolded ia the Yale of Llasgrollea, has no equal in this pleasant land of ours, aaade an appropriate setting1 to one of the prettiest and moss iateresliag weddings that have been celebrated in St. Collea's Church during recant years. The contracting- parties were Miss Mabel Edwards, fourth daughter of the late Mr. James Coster Edwards, and the Rav. Gilbert Heaton, who is now Vicar of Sk Mary's, Cardiff, a most; important charge, where he is doing good service and is no less deservedly popular than when, as Curate of Llaagolles, he won the good opinion ef all in the district and from whence his removal to St. Mark's, Wrexham-which proved the half-way house to South Wales-was generally regretted. Owing to the death of the brother-in- law of the bride, which event oceiitred at the close of last year, the event was robbed of a good deal of the stir and ceremony that usually attends such functions and oniy the relaLives of the bride and bridegroom were invited to be present. Nevertheless, teA interior, of the historic Church of St. Collen was crowded long before the hour fixed for the ceremony. The interior of the chancel bad been very effectively decorated with palms and fllHvering plants by Mr. R, Horspool. The officiating clergymen were Archdeacon Wynne- Jones, M A of Oswestry the Rev. L. D. Jenkins, M.A., of Llangollen, and the Rev. Arthur Jones, of Aylesbury. The bride, who was given away by her brother, Mr. E. Lloyd Edwards, J.P., of Bryn Osrog^ wore a gown of white panne, with bodice of fine Irish lace, and a white beaver toque. There were no bridesmaids, and the bridegroom was attended by the Rev. 0. A. Empson., Vicar of St. Saviour's Church, Roath, who acted as best man. Mr. Carter, organist, presided at the organ, and during the service. which was fully choral, hymns 350, 209 and 37!) were sung, the Wedding Mareh being plaYEd as the newlv-married pair were leaving the Ociureh. Mr. and Mrs. Heaton subsequently left for the South of England, where the honeymoon is being spent; the bride's going away dress being of brown cloth, with fur toque. Daring the after- noon merry peals were rung on the bells of the Parish Church, and in the evening the choir and bell-ringers were entertained to dinner at the "Royal" Hotel, Mr. Shaw catering in his well- known excellent style.

THE REVIVAL. CONTINUED SPREAD OF THE MOVEMENT. From all parts of North Wales reports as to the revival show that it continues to spread. At Rhoa the number of converts is HOW returned at over a thousand, and the practical effect apon the life of the district, particularly upon the habits of the miners, is still very marked. The meetings are attended by crowds, and the enthusiasm shows little, if any, sign of abatement. At Barmonth a feature of the meetings is the large number of young people who take part in theiaa. The converts there exceed fifty. The revival spirit has descended upon Portiaiadoc wiih almesli dramatic force. The speaking, the earnest prayers, and the general atmosphere of the meetings closely resemble the conditions of the South Wales meetings, and already there are many notable cases of conversion. The services are kept up to a late hour, the enthu- siasm making the people insensible to the march of time. A NEW MOYB AT LLANGOLLEN. Last week being the "week of Prayer," each Charoh held its own meetings. The meetings were exceedingly well attended, and a deep earnest feeling of devobiou and praise pervaded them. On Sabbath evening the union was re-started, the first meeting being held in the Congregational Chapel, which was filled with a devout and expectant con- gregation. The meeting was one of great power. On Monday evening, the meeting was held in the Baptist Chapel, whiolb, at the time of commencing, was well filled. After praise, reading of Scripture and prayer, a large procession was formed, which paraded Castle-street, Regent-strest, Church-street, Bridge-street, back to the chapel, which was crowded with a devout congregation. At Victoria- square a hymn was sung, and prayer offered by the Rev. Edward Davies also, at Pont-felin-hen by the Rev. W. Foulkes. Mi route hymns were earnestly and heartily sung. On Tuesday evening the prayer meeting was to be held at Panilyn Chapel, but owing to insufficient room it was thought advisable to hold it in Reheboth Chapel, which was again filled. The procession took the i'\ame route as the previous evening. A great feature of these services is the Sisters' Prayer Meetings held in the afternoons, and the Young People's Prayer Meeting* held after the evening service, when the floor of the chapel is filled with young men and maidens evidently bent on a full blessing for themselves, the churches, and the town. From all tbe services and processions much spiritual and lasting good is prayed for. The meetings on Wednesday were held in the Congre- gational Chapel, when 11 Showers of blessing wero experienced. WOMEN'S PRAYER MEETINGS. Successful meetings have been held by the women in the town for five weeks,which become more popular each day. Hymns are sung at times with great effect prayers are uttered by old and young persons with great fervour. The part the women are taking in the present movement is most beauti- fat, and has proved beneficial in several cases. It is evident that great sacrifices have been made to attend so faithfully each afternoon. OLD DEBTS PAID. One good effect of the revival in Portraadao has been to make many people pay old debts. A debt of Gd. owing a long tirr-o was paid in one instance, and in another a debt of 2s. owing over six years has been paid. Young women continue to take a leading part in the revival services in South Carnarvonshire. The Pwllheli Anglican Church is as full of the revival as the Nonconformist. Services are being held almost daily by Canon Davies, and during the fortnight 21 converts have been made. St. John's Church, Portmadoc, is also warming to the move- ment. YOUNG MAN SUPPLANTS THE PREACHER' A remarkable scene was witnessed in the Zion Welsh Baptist Chapel, Rhos, when the Rev. E. Mitchell was preaching. A young man rose from the gallery and walked etraight up to the pulpit., saying that that the pastor must cease, as Jesus Christ had commanded him to preach the Gospel to the people. The pastor gave way, and the youth faced the congregation and preached for somg time, much to the amazement of the people. The meetings and processions have neither been organised by a committee nor invited by the churches, but arranged by the converts among themselves. They said that they had in the past been publicly sinning against God, and they felt that now, after conversion, it was their duty to show publicly that they were not ashamed of confessing Christ before men. WOMAN'S SORROW TURNED TO JOY. At one of the Rhos meetings it was stated that the wife of one of the worst drunkards in the distric was asked by a deacon of one of the churches if the revival had not been the means of making he husband sober. With tears in her eye, she said in reply that it had not. Indeed," she added, the revival seems to have made him worse." But at the time when this conversation was taking place the husband was giving himself up as a convert in one of the chapels. A marked feature of the revival meetings in the llhos and Peoycae district is the number of children between the ages of 10 and 16 who take part in the meetings. Children's prayer meetings are also being held, and youths not more than li offer up prayers of remarkable eloquence. EVAN ROBERTS AND RHOS. Mr. Evan Roberts has been approached by the Rhos omcialf, who on Tuesday stated that be had replied that be was anxious to visit North Wales, and that Rhos should be the first place in the northern portion of the Principality where he would appear. No date could be fixed, however. A WOMAN'S OBJECTION TO ST. PAUL. On Sunday at Rhos there were prayer meetings in addition to the usual services, as many as eigh meeting's being held in most of the chapels. The women take prominent part in moat of the meet- ings. They sing sacred solos, lead in singing hymns, offer up prayers, and relate their experiences, and they have been able to touch, through their sisterly pleading, many who withstood all appeals made to them by ministers and deacons. One woman exclaimed at one of the meetings that the women were the last to leave the cross of Christ on Calvary and the first at the Saviour's grave on the resurrection morn and, she added, We would have had a lot more than we have received were it not for what Paul the apostle has said—: Lot your women keep silence in the churches, for it is not permitted unto them to speak. EISTEDDFOD WORK ABANDONED. In the Rhos districe every society and organisa- tion has to give way to the revival meetings. The Rhos Silver Band and the Excelsior Band find it difficult to get the members to attend at practice. The Silver Band has decided to discontinue prac- tice for two muBths whilst the well-known Rhos Choir, which carried off the first prize in the chief choral competition at the Queen's Hall Eisteddfod, London, last February, and fully intended compet- ing at the same eisteddfod this year for the hundred guineas prize, has been unable to secure the attendance of the members at the practices, and the idea of competing at the eisteddfod has been abandoned. The Vicar of Rhos (the Rev. Thomas Pritchard), who has been in full sympathy with the revival movement since its commencement, has this week commenced a series of revival meetings at Rhos Parish Church. "AT LAST." A eorrsspondent writes :-The tension of Amlwch has been highly struag for a goed while, and last week the customary prayer meetings, which'are usaally held the first week in each year, culmi- nated in the Spirit of Revival breaking loose in euF midhb and several submitting themselves to the Lord. OR Saturday evening, the Revivalists con- gregated in the Square, where well-known hymns were sung afterwards breaking up inta sections and singing they went to the various chapels, where spontaneous prayer and singing was kept up until a late hour. Several of the places of worship on Sunday dispensed with the formal mode of serviee and continual prayer was held until 10 p.m. The Rev. Mr. Jenkins and his lady singers, from New Quay, South Wales, are to bs here on Wedaeeday-and Thursday, and many good rasalts are expeoted. Thy kingdom come, Oh Lord, Till all our land is leaven; And m»3r Thy will be done on earth As it is done in Heaven." A RHOS CONVERT'S VOW. Remarkable scenes continued to be witnessed at the revival meetings in the Rhos district. The preaching services ueld on Monday seem to have inspired the members of the several churches, and especially the ceuverts, to even greater enthusiasm than before. On Wednesday night there were about a dozen more converts at the prayer meetings, and hardly a meeting passed without three or four coming in. The eight hundred odd converts have also started a meeting themselves, which is known as" Cyfa-rfod y Dychweledigion, and the gather- ing of aonverta on Wednesday evening was marked by intense enthusiasm. Arrangements are being made for a great meeting and a procession through the streets bo the eonverts in the whole district, te be held at Capel Mawr, Rhos, next week. At almost every meeting reformed drunkards give personal testimonies to the effect the revival has had upon them. One said that he had made two vows. Never more to frequent public-houses and football fields, and spend his leisure time in reading the Scriptures and in seeing to the right training of his children." A STIRRING HYMN. The following hymn is being sting with great sujeess in the Rhos district Y Gwr wrth ffynnon Jacob, Eisteddodd yno'i lawr, Tramwyodd trwy Samaria, Tramwyed yrna'n awr; Bu syched arno yno Am gael eu hachub hwy, Mae syohed arno eto Am achub llawer mwy.
