THE CHURCH IN WALES. FEW utteraces of recent times have proved of more rei interest to Welshmen in general, and Welsh Churchmen in particular, than the scholarly deiverance of the Bishop of St. David's at the rece:t Church Congress. Of course, the great Episcpal gatherings at Manchester, like our own Naional Eisteddfod, may, in these days of rapid socil and political movement, now be regarded as matters of ancient history; but there is alwiys a good deal to be gained from going bac: upon" matters of this kind, and studying, in j calmer atmosphere than may pre- vail at the aoment of their deliverance, utter- ances that can scarcely fail to have a deep and abiding influsnce upon our times. It is a very wise practiseon the part of those who take pro- nounced vievs upon any public matter to bear in mind tht there are two sides to every question; anl to pull their skiff, as it were, on occasions, ino quiet backwaters of thought in order to examine their opponents' arguments and to maki ealm comparisons; for if, by so doing, opiniois be not changed they can scarcely fail to secur) saner and sounder bases. We would, therefore, advise all friends of Welsh Disestablishment, who have not already done so, by securing the official report of the Church Congress and studying the speeches of the Bishop of St. David's and other great Welsh Churchmen on the subject, to so acquaint them- selves with "the other side of the case "to that with which tley are thoroughly acquainted, and with the striking arguments in favour of which they may be perfectly familiar. It is no part of our intention. io dwell upon the intensely in- teresting discussion officially preserved, but there is one ;Ioint which the Bishop of St. David's advances which is too frequently over- looked. It ha3 become so much the custom to apeak of the Church in Wales as an alien Church that it is well we should be reminded that The Church in the Welsh dioceses is the most ancient portion of the Church of this island of Britain that this fact is supportable by in- controvertible historical evidence; and that all attempts to break down the continuity of the long history of the Church in Wales, either betweea the cLose of the Roman occupation of Britain and the mission of St. Augustine, or during the five centuries of fusion of the Welsh with English dioceses, or at the time of the Reformation, hare failed. Furthermore, it is well to hear from this great Welsh prelate that the fusion of ihe Welsh with the Euglish dioceses, culminpAirjg in their present unity, was completed long Itefore the formal incorporation of Wales with England." All of this brings to mind the wordis of Gladstone: "We might really speak with;, as much justice of the Ohufrch of Wales in England as of the Church of England in Wales but't does something more. It sug- gests the necessity for careful individual examin- ation of bofb sides.of this question of declining to accept .any statement as true unless we have looked at it m <<Jore Hghts than one of insistiag upon thoroughly n><* -it;a;viug mental pabulum ladled oat by p* Ni'cis*s at such alarming Speed before- we swallow it. This may not tend to diminish of powers of assimilation but it will immeasurably improve our mental digestion. »
WALES AND LIVERPOOL HOSPITALS. A QUESTION of outstanding importance was raised by Mr. John Williams at last Friday's meeting of the Cforwen Board of Guardians to which, we note, the Liverpool Courier devotes a leading article. d.' The Committees ef some of the Liverpool Hospitals," says our contemporary, "have arrived at a decision, no doubt re- luctantly, but of iaecessity, that is causing con- siderable perturbation in North Wales. The charitable institutions of which we in the city are so proud are among the finest in the country, both as to staff and equipment, and their doors are open to patients from within a large radius, despite the fact that Liverpool alone can well supply patients in numbers sufficient to occupy fully the provision made for surgical and medical treatment. As is well known, cases, especially those requiring treatmeat at the hands of special- ists, are sent intso the Liverpool hospitals in large numbers from North Wales; but the fin- ancial support received from the Principality is far from being commensurate with the benefits conferred. Not that the hospital committees look primarily to this circumstance. They are anxious and willing to afford Belief wherever they can but their-needs daily increase, while the subscriptions do not increase in the same ratio. The subject was brought prominently and forcibly before the last meeting of the Corwen Board of Guardians by Mr. John Williams, who pointed out that two Liverpool hospitals alone received 450 Welsh patients, involving a- Cost of £ 1,610, while only X1300 is contributed by Wales. The disparity between these figures is sufficiently marked to require no comment. They speak eloquently for them- selves, and should enforce ;he appeal made by Mr. Williams that each I oor Law Union in North Wales should make a *rant from the rates to the support of Liverpool hospitals. The churches, too, might do more than at present in the same direction, for it hardly seems fai-r that for a contribution of a couple of guineas they should secure benefits which cost the hospitals twenty times that amount. What will happen if the institutions carry out their threat? The public authorities of Wales will have to provide and equip hospitals for themselves at the oost of many thousands of pounds, raised voluntarily or from the rates, and in either case inflicting a heavy burden upon a people who are already suffering from heavy and yearly increasing rates. In their own interests Welsh people should take this subject seriously to heart, to avoid what will be a serious calamity, and it is to be hoped that the inquiries that are to be made by the Corwen Board will have some adequate tangible result."
EXTENSION LEOTURES. IT is sincerely to be hoped that full advantage will be taken of opportunities provided by the Course of Four Lsctures to be delivered, in the Town Hall, during the coming Winter months. These lectures, as the subjects and the eminent authorities who treat of them abundantly indi- cate, will be of outstanding interest. They are the outcome of practical suggestions made by Mr. L. Lloyd John, that determined atepa should be taken locally to give effect to the desires of the Gilchrist Trust, when they grant to any locality one of their unique courses of lectures. They seek to accomplish something beyond pro- viding a number of opportunities to the public to enjoy a series of rich intellectual treats and to secure the foremost authorities of the day to dish up in a most palatable manner, and make attractive as fairy tales, matters that are usually regarded as of the dry as dust order. As we pointed out last week the aim of the Trust is to create a healthy appetite for a class of mental pabulum that is not so frequently sought after as it should be, at anyrate by the working classes; and, having called this appetite into being, their work may be said to terminate. But the Gilchrist Authorities clearly point out, if their conceptions of the wishes and intentions of the beneficent founder of the Trust are to be carried out, matters must not be permitted to end here. They, so to speak, "press the button," letting light into the dark plaaes-it is for local committees and organizations to do the rest and to develop and secure the full fruition of their enterprise. The Gilchrist Trust has done a good deal of button pressing" at Llan- gollefn. Chiefly by the tireless energy of Mr. Lloyd John three courses of Lectures under its auspices have been delivered in the town during recent years; and they have all, judged by the large attendances and the deep interest mani- fested by the audiences, been most thoroughly appreciated-in fact the Secretary of the Trust has stated that no town of its size in North Wales shows greater recognition of the advan- tages of the Lectures than does Llangollen. The deep and absorbed interest displayed by crowded audiences may, however, prove in a way ephem- eral if no effort be made to render it per- manent and lasting. This is what the local committee responsible for the organization of the Course of Popular Lectures, the first of which will be delivered at the Town Hall on Thursday evening next, thoroughly recognize. They are following lines suggested by the Trust, continuing the cultivation of a field in which ground has already been broken and as we have written, it is sinc&rely to be hoped that their efforts will be acknowledged and appre- ciated in the manner which they will recard as tnoet satisfactory. Under the chairmanship of Mr. L. Lloyd John, Mr. F. A. McKeazie, War Correspondent of the Daily Mail, will deliver the opening lecture of the Course on Thursday next and we trust a crowded audience will attend. «
LOCAL AND DISTRICT. Archdeacon Wynne Jones, of Oswestry, has succeeded Canon Fletcher, of Marchwiel, as canon in residence at Asaph Cathedral. The annual preaching meetings were held at Glyndyfrdwy, on Wednesday evening and on Thurs- day, when the preachers were the Rev. D. Morris, Penygroes, and A Davies, Llangollen. There were large congregations. --+-- A social evening was arranged on Thursday evening week, by the committee of Mr. C. Everitt's Bible Class and was held in the National Schools. After games, etc., had been indulged in, coffee and sandwiches were served by the committee Mr. Price presenting eigarat-tees and tobacco. Th a I., evening proved a. most enjoyable one. j Messrs. Jones & Spij, <<.u.<:tioneera, LlangoHea and Wrexham, will conduct their usual sale in the Smithfleld, on Tuesday nexs; and on Thursday (the 29th), and following day if necessary, they will dispose of a splendid lot of surplus furniture at" the Rovnl" Hotel, which is beiog sold by order of the trustee. It is expected that a meeting of the Welsh Church Commissioners will be summoned soon to discuss the report, but nothing definate is known. It is said that a g'ood deal of work has been done in digesting the evidence by the secretaries, but the Cooatnissiouers have not met since August. The prospects of the report appeariug this year are therefore not very bright. A successful meeting was held at the Baptist Chapel, Garth, on Wednesday. The awards were Open solo, Mr. S. Brown, Cyfn.

The marriage took place on Thursday, at St James' Ohureh, Piccadilly, London, between Dr' Llnyd Roberts, Carnarvon, eldest son of the Dean of Bangor, and Mrs. Roberts, and Miss Gwendoline Frances Wynn, eldest daughter of the Hon. C. H. Wynn and Mrs. Wynn, of Rug, near Corwen] The bride is a coaein of Lord Newborough The officiating clergymen were the Bishop of Bangor, the Dean of Bangor, and CanOn M'Cocmack, vicar of the parish. Messrs. David Roberts and Son advertise that they will conduct, at Llan, Oarrog, on Thursday next (Oct. 29th), a most important sale, that should command the attention of all farmers and stock- breeders, not only in the immediate vicinity but throughout North Wales generally. Mr. Godfrey Parry, the well-known agriculturist, is giving up farming and the stock which will come under th* hammer will include 113 fat and store sheep, 16 head of croaa-bred cattle, 12 cart horses and ponies and 12 pigs, in additioa to 15 large stacka of hay and corn and the whole of the modern implements of his husbandry, etc. The harvest festival services were held at Glyndyfrdwy, Parish Church, on Friday. The church was decorated by Mrs. and Miss Tottenham, Mrs. Wyse and Miss Morris, assisted by Mr. W. H. Jones, Plas Berwyn, and Mr. Ernie Davies. At the English service, in the afternoon, the lessons were read by Mr. C. R. W. Tottenham, Carrog Isaf, and the preacher was the .Rw. D. Edwards, Leicester. At the Welsh sprvice, in the evening, the preacher was the Rev. D. Jones, Abererah. The church was filled to its utmost capacity. The singing, under the leadership of Mr. W. E. Roberts, organist and choirmaster, was effective. The collections were for the jubilee celebrations proposed to be held in connection with the Church next year. On Wednesday evening, the Llangollen Orpheus Glee Singers scored a great success in their appear- ance at the National School,Rhoaymedre,at a concert in which the whole of the programme was under- taken by them. The party consisted of Messrs. A. Bye, Andrew Jones, E. O. Parry, G. Jackson, Percy Clarke, Madam Eiith Chrke.Evans (soprano), Mr. R. Smith (cornet), Miss G-wladys Humphreys, Mr. Gwilym Humphreys and Miss May Bradshaw, Wavertree, Liverpool (accompanists). Mr. E. Lloyd Jones presided and, at the close, the organizes of the concert, which was in aid of the Rhosymedre Church Choir Funds and under the direction of Mr. Archer (the organist) a hearty vote of thanks, of a most complimentary character,was paid to the Llangollen party for the excellent manner in which their programme had been carried out. We beg to draw our readers' attention tc the popular lecture which is to be delivered, at the Town Hall, Llangollen, on Tuesday, November 17th, by the Rev. John Williams, Brynsiencyn. Mr. Wiliiams, who takes as his subject, "John Elias o Fon," needs no introduction to the public of this district. The proceeds will be devot towards the Penllyn Chapel Building Fund.
— ♦— CHILDREN'S CHEST TROUBLES. A SAFE AND CERTAIN CURE M VEFO'S LIGHTNING COUGH CUKE. Mr. Henry J. Rolls, The Grove Ledg-3, Malpasf Newport, Moa., writes:—"Our little boy suffered for years with bronchitis and a chronic csugh, and I tried endless cough syrups, embrocations, and doctor's medicines in vain. At last I tried your great remedy, and noticed an improvement after two doses only. and one large bottle effwcted » radical cure. It also cured him of a bad whooping cough, and I am sure that VeRo's Lightning Cough Care saved my boy's life." Veno's Lightning Cough Cure is the surest remedy for all chest and lung troubles, prioe 9|d.? Is. IJd. and 2s. 9d., of all chemists.
«— DOGS OF LLANGOLLEN. TALES OF TWO LOCAL CANINE MARVEL Writing to a eon temporary faom "the Woodlands." Llangollen, Mr. Thomas Ruddy states there is a Collie dog called Carlo, at Peritrefelia Mill, about a mile from Llangollan, which has taken a greats fancy to playing with a hoop. As it watched the boy there playing, it evidently took a keen interest in what he did, for it got the hoop in the absence1 of the boy, and rushed about the mill yard with it" The dog gets into the hoop and tries to mimic the boy as much as possible. It jumps a considerable height to get the hoop from the nail on which it hangs, and if it fails, it runs up outside steps fOf- it. The miller frequently gets it to perform fot the amusement of passing friemds, and the dog1 seems to enter into the fun with much relish, and when at play gets highly excited. Dr. R. Drinkwater, of Llangollen, has an Airedale terrier named Cronje any sportsman who sees' < Cronje will readily endorse what Dandie Dinmont said about Wasp A honnie terrier that, sir,- and a fell chiel at the vermin, I warrant." Cronje has had as many adventures as the Boet "General, whose name he bears many more tholl any dog in this neighbourhood, and quite enough to have killed any ordinary dog. But he is as yet lively enough and as keen as ever after game sD$ vermin. Owing to his impetuosity when, aIt-ef game, he has been accidentally shot several time?? and left for dead, but much to the surprise of the sportsman he rallied each time, end was ss ss ever after the rabbits. Once he got his jammed in the cleft of a reek, which left stunned for some time, but be wrenched himeeli free by s desperate effort and went rolling hill like a ball. Another time he was in hot pur" suit of a rabbit;, which he seized on the top ? high rock, when both fell over together, aD. were afterwa: ds found at the bottom, the rabbit quite dead and the dog apparently so. In all hoirf or so the dog was quite lively and went on bunt; ing. His last achievement was to get run over by a heavy motor-car, at the door of his town houser tor this dog enjoys the luxury of having a tow'js hou?e and a house in the country at Geufron, way up Dinas Bran. The poor dog got double up under the car, and one of the wheels went his neck. One of those who saw the accident, He is done for this time." He was not done for because the dog will have his day." As sron a& he got from underneath the car he ran eff, muc& to the astoaisha^enfc of ,the,ff?ll,G§kejs» to hit. ooust*? house, and neither calling nor whistling could get him back. Evidently he thought he had enough of motor-cars for that day. Cronje is not at alj: a conceited dog, though he might well be such, so often and so marveiloui-ly has he escaped death,. Fie follows the even tenor of his way from day day he is ever ready for sport, and delighted » • follow the gun at the heels of his master. only is he a good hunter, but he is also a good dog; at retrieving, for he has found shot birds in tu oips when other dogs failed to do so. Cronje happy hunting ground lies chiefly on the sides c- the well-known hil), on which stand the ruins Dinas Bran Castle, from which may be seen ROWe. of most beautiful scenery in North Wales. Loa% may Cronje live to hunt game and to sniff the pu-ro air of the Vale of Llangollen.
