A a lecenfc Council meeting at .Yi>er ..vivvythtiie ex-Mayor 6i! 'i tttenlion to the darkiicao 0; tlupell's road and sugges- ted .cpriety rf placing T-e^> the Town Hail auu No-til Para le. Th?re can Oe !:o UoiiU tha1; a !ainp is mu" needed a.t the place indicated, ar.d we hope the Liptt Committee will recommend that one shall be placed then Perhaps the Lights Committee, as prt)posed by the ex-Mayor, will visit Queen's-road some dark night and judg., for themselves whether an additional lamp is re- quired. We relieve that the Rev. F. H. TOMPSON, of Llan- Ilwchaiarn, has accepted the living of Chirk, where he officiated as curate a quarter of a century ago. His name is sr.ili held in affectionate remembrance by many of the i parishioners, and his return is anticipated with much delist t. The living of Llanllvvchaiarn, which is of the gross value of E360, with a residence, has not yet been filled up by the Bishop of St. ASAPH, in whose gift it is The Newtown Local, Board a- e Laking a step which other Board- would do well to take—extending their boundaries. As towns grow it often happens that many persons who enj- y all the advantages of Local Government build out- side the limits of the Local Board Act and escape the rates. Of course this is unfair to the ratepayers, and the Newtown Board are trying to remedy the injustice. The Shrewsbury Council have resolved to increase the pay of their police by one shilling a week. A .niner, named TIMOTHY, was going down an incline at the (¡Jd Mine Works, Llangynog, the other day, and try- ing put straight a waggon which had gone out of its course, when he fell a depth of about. 20 yards, and sus- tained injuries which ended in death before be could be brought to the surface. At an adjourned meeting of the Newtown and Llan. llwchaiarn School Board, the Clerk reported a small but gratifying increase in the attendance at the Schools. At the same time he called attention to the number of children who attended irregularly and chere is no doubl. that dl School Boards will have to keep a vigilant watch for some time over those parents who, either through igno- rance or negligence, do not care to secure a proper educa- tion for their children. After awfcile the people will learn that England intends tu insist upon educatien, but it will take some time to teach the lesson. The neighbourhood of Wrexham is becoming somewhat notorious for the use of the knife. We have had to record recently several quarrels which resulted in stabbing, and now anctlier has to be added to the list. On Saturday night, as twomen named DAVIES and HOUGHAGAN, who were engaged in the mining works about Wrexham, were going home from that town in a stage cart, they quarrelled, and the latter attacked DAVIES with a knife, and succeeded in inflicting several wounds, most of them superficial, but one or two of more serious character. What the end of the encounter might have been it is impossible to say, had not DAVIES ejected his assailant from the cart. The accused was brc light before the magistrates on Monday, when the prosecutor was unable to appear, and a remand was'granted. Prisoner was admitted to bail.
