Five minutes from the ata»t J. T. Edwards met the bw.Il with a fine kick, and returned it tito the front vhere R. Newton tipped it with his head, and put it through. After a fast game during which both sides worked hard, the game ended with the score unchanged, thus leaviag the Carnarvon men in for the tinal together with Denbigh. A protest was jraised after he game on account of a change of goal-keepera on the partjof the Athletics,which will bejconsidered at the meeting of the Association, which is to be held at Carnarvon on Friday the 21st inst, at the Royal Hotel.

RHYL.—Played at Howell's} School field, Denbigh, last Saturday; 400 spectators. Rhyl won tne toss, and chose to play with the wind, and immediately began to press their enpo- seats, and five minutes from the sta^t Low wwred. One to nil. Denbigh wakened up on this, and it was not long before Eaton Lloyd Williams made matters equal. Play, of course, became fast and lotions, both sides making desperate efforts to score, and Rhyl, by a determined effort, seemed on the point of doing so first, but J. Tudge, back, struck the ball out. Uhyl at once claimed a goal, but the referee decided against them,only allowing them a free kick, which they did not succeed in scoring from,and shortly after half-time was called. On resuming the Denbigh men made a grand attack on the Rhyl goal and scored aaother point, David Williams being credited with the goal. Two to one. Just now Rhyl played rather loosely, and Denbigh scored another goal, T. Morris this time sending the ball through. Rhyl, however, in epite of these reverses, worked harder than ever, and just before time T. Lewis managed to score aaother point, and the game ended with the score at three to two. A protest was lodged against the decision of the referee in disallowing a goal when J. Tadge stopped the ball with his hand. Teams Denbigh:—Goal. Ekin: barks, J. Tadge and W B. Williams; half-backs, W. Tadge, Wynn Ed- wards, and W. Jones; left wing, J- Evana and R. Jones; right wing, David Wtltiams and T Morris; centre, "Eaton Lt. W/lliama. Rhyl: Goal, J; Jones backs, A. J.

Ttte play, considering that both clubs have only recently been started, was, on the whole, very creditable, the game eventually ending in favour of Llanberis by four goals and one disputed to three goals. The game was pleasantly played throughout, and was wit- nessed by a large concourse of spectators. CARNARVON- COLT3 V. RHYL 2ND ELBVKW.— Played at Rhyl on Saturday, and won by the Colts. Four to nil. Rough game. MOLD V. COBDPOETH.—A match was played between these teams on the Mold ground last Saturday afternoon in favourable weather. The ball was set in motion by the home team, who played with the wind in their favour. During the first half of the game the ball was mostly in the direction of the visitors' goal, which: was frequently assailed, but the goal-keeper repelled the onslaughts successfully, except in one ( instance when, after having returned the ball v several times, he unfortunately misjudged a kick, the result being that the ball passed between the poets, much to his chagrin, as he had played well before this happened. From the opportunities afforded the Mold forwards it might reas,nably have been expected they would have scored during the first half, but they did not succeed in doing eo. During the second half of the game the play was in favour of the visitors, who, despite the repeated uncalled for remarks addressed to them by some of the Mold players and onlookers, played well, which fact seemed to irritate some of their opponents, and they made the game a draw by scoring a goal, which was the only one they obtained. We regret to state that the language of some of the players W8.P reserving of severe censure, as well as the continual disputes that took place, instead of allowing the two umpires to decide for which purpose they are chosen. These remarks, it is but righfr to add, only apply to certain of the players and not to all, and for that reason it is, perhaps, better to omit the names of the teams, lest suspicion should be misplaced. It wou7d be well, also, if some of the spectators wo"11 refrain from insulting strangers, and if ■fciey applauded good play on both sides instead of reserving their applause entirely for the home team it would show that they apprefciate the noble game better than their one-sided conduct on Saturday tended to prove.
NICKNAMES. Sm.Having read in your last issue an account of the football match placed between the Bangor Athletic and the Bangor Football Club, I think I will not be out of place in saying a word -or two on the same. It seems to me that your correspondent feels inclined to cast a slur upon the different players that engage in friendly rivalry in Bangor. The subject I will refer to is the fictitious names given to certain members of the Athletic Club. Your last issue was not the first that contained the name of John Jones (A.F.O.) either as "John Grunt," or "John Mochyn." Again your correspondent has thought it proper to call John Williams (a -member of the now defunct Mountain Rangers) "Step." I have own his name on many occasions in print, but I never perceived an oZiis attached to it. If "Wi liams and Jones are known in the vicinity of Bangor by the names referred to, that doas not signify that your correspondent should give them a worU-wide reputation. To see a person's name that figures in the police courts aliased is bad enough,but to publish them after a game of football is worse, and I am of opinion that the heads of our local contemporaries should refuse to entertain such, and confine their report (?) to the ever- filling "basket." Before I shall withdraw my pen I shall ask your correspondent does he know that more than one*haIf of the Bangor team are better known by fictitious names? Trusting that your correspondent in future will do justice with both teams.-I am, sir, yours truly, REQUIKSCAT IN PACE.

Aw'm fain tho' as we'n getten a gradely Lancashire mon or two among us. As the Bangor men stood in their places on the fleld last Saturday, trim, alert, and all alive to look »t, I thought there wasn't much chance for the Athletics anyhow, and I said as much to our Sec., Watkins, who endorse# my opinion, but, as » I old Dizzy once remarked, Its never safe to prophesy till you are sure," and this was emphati- cally the case on Satarday. In spite of their best efforts the Athletics walked round their opponents I completely. I was thoroughly surprised, as indeed most of the spectators were. & It mnst be said there was no good play by any of the Bangor men. Hewitt was not ready for the ball that scored. Smith and Jones failed to improve at least a dozen chances, and J. F. Wil- liams, as well as Humphrey Jones, actually put one or two throws into touch, besides kicking a corner each in a wretched fashion behind. There was plenty of pluck, but the men seemed to be under some spell. Willman with Teuton coolness stood in his place, and guarded his post fairly well, though even he was beaten by tne active little fellow opposed to him, Tom Hughes. Robert Williams and Willie Lewis worked like demons, and made several very dangerous runs, but they, too were beaten, and Davy Jones and Roberta on the other wing were equally futile. Roberts is a grand shot though, and ought to have scored once or twice, but the fact that he did not is only another feather in the Athletic's cap. All his shots were met and stopped. Richard Williams also worked hard, and always had a share in bringing the ball c p. The spectators spoke highly of Humphrey Jones' gentlemanly fair play, though: very much disappointed, or rather surprised that he was not as effective as usual. He, however, made one of the most dangerous shots of the day for his side, putting a free kick from half way down the field straight through the goal, and it was within an ace of scoring, as one or two of the Athletics had a narrow escape of touching it. The team hag certainly deteriorated'since I saw them play at Pant on Boxing Day, and as far as I ca^ judge, the cause is neglect of practice. I'm really sorry for them, and especially for their courteous hardworking captain, Mr Smith, who deserves a much better return than Saturday's dis. play for the time and effort he devotes to the club. Saturday's affair was a serious matter for you Bangor F.C., and for your supporters as well, they depended on you you know, and you failed them, and the failure is due to your own remissness as far%s I can make out. The worst of it is there is no chane. this season to redee "a the disaster, but if it proves a lesson which will be remembered next year, it will have done good. <t For the winners every man played grandly, J. T. Edwards, a second eleven man, to whom the winning point was partly if not chiefly due, dis- carded one or two faults which have marred his play in the past, and tackled and kicked beautifully. The same may be said of R. Jones, who did his work as back in a faultless manner. Whenever Alwyn at half missed his kick or was beaten by an opponent, Jones was behind, safe as a rock, and always to ba depended on. Plucky little Carter, fagged to death as he was, always responded to any call made on him, and did as much mischief as any man on the field in the way of spoiling runs, flurrying R. Williams or Willie Lewis when they were steadying themselves after a run up for a shot at goal, by rushing straight at them or at the ball, being tumbled over for his pains continually, but still keeping it up, and thus helping materially to prevent the other side from scoring. His play though was not good, and this is the only exception to the statement I made earlier on. He did good work for his side, yet his ploy was nothing to speak of, and is another instance of the bad effects of neglecting to practice. Bertie was grand, and his generalship was certainly a credit to him. His brother too worked splendidly, as did N. Roberts, and Price Jones, the latter playing up to his best form. But the players of the day were E. D.. in goal, J. Williams, half-back; and Parry Williams and Tom Hughes, forwards, and of these Tom Hughes shone most brilliantly. His play was something to be remembered, especially in the second half. J.F. could do nothing with him. Hughes not only dodged and tricked him time after time, but knocked him down more than once, and if it had not been for Willman's watchfulness and steadi- ness, two or three other goals would probably have resulted from Hughes's splendid play. He was full of tricks, and as fleet as a hare, and he and Roberts passed remarkably well. In spite of the fact that during the second half the Athletics were only playing three forwards, Hughes was very near scoring several times, and had R. Newton been at his usual post, nothing could have prevented such a result. Hughes depended chiefly on himself in working the ball up or down, and the result showed, that. selfish though the play was, he was quite justified in doing it. Parry Williams again did some really grand things, Price and he making several runs on their wing during the first half, and while acting on the defensive during the second half, Williams was continually on the ba1], heading kicking and blocking in first rate style. • • J. Williams' play at half-back was simply superb. There had been a go 3d deal of feeling aroused against him in the town on account of a rumour that he bad gone home the night before, and would not play, but to his honour be it said, he was on the field that morning, practising, and in the afternoon he played a thoroughly honest game, and delighted the spectators by his numerous points. As Hughes was the best man forward, so Williams was undoubtedly the best man back. Last comes E. D. Last in more than one sense for at one time it was said he had made up his mind not to play, and it was only at the last moment that he turned up. However, he never did better work than on Saturday. A Bangor man said to me after the game was over, that fellow's play was simply marvellous. There came the ball flying in from R. J. Roberts, and two or three of our men were on to him as he caught it, but it was no use, he coolly stepped aside, and threw the ball into play as unconcernedly as pos. sible." Fes, E. D., you came off with flying colours on Saturday. < I must not forget to mention a beautiful over- head kick by Willie Lewis, which almost beat E. D., and also the good kicking of J. S. Jones. Why, that little fellow is "as good a kick as Bertie," said a spectator, and Jones deserved the praise fully. « Turning to tjie match at Denbigh, I can only say it will be hard lines if the protest raised by Rhyl against them be sustained, for they most certainly deserved to win. The result was a greater surprise than the other, and a large crowd of people awaited the result at Bangor and at Car- narvon with intense eagerness. The result is all the more creditable to Denbigh when it is re- membered that only a few weeks ago Rhyl beat them hollow on their own ground. I don't think it is generally known how the change was brought about, but it deserves to be. It was by the simple, commonplace, but most effective plan of prac- tising. Every day, I am told, the Denbigh fellows put in two hours downright hard work on the field by way of practice, with the result that they beat one of the best clubs in North Wales, or, sup- posing the protest to be upheld, they made a clear draw of it. <* Eaton LI. Williams played magnificently, as did T. Morris and David Williams, who each scored. "Riken in goal had some stiff work to do, and did it splendidly, stopping the career of many a hot one from the Rhyl forwards. In fait every man did his duty, W. R. WiJiams at back being per- haps the best of all. »•» » I don't agree with the letter by RequleBpat in Pace." Nicknames are not applied to players, in these columns at any rate, for the purpose of making them ridiculous, but because, frequently, a player is better known by his alias than by his Baptismal cognomen..Still, I don't like nick- ♦weS«au<i kee;p them out in future, as I find !!l0i .pe"0M besides R. I. P." have cora- tlle practice. By the way, I quite endorse the remarks of my correspondent who reported the match at Mold for me. They apply eve,7 match» and should be borne in mind by i>hosa whom they concern. I One- more a team announced P-a represeiitative of Wales has been thrashed by England, and in spite of the fact that all Wales knows that that team no more represented Wales than the three I tailors of Tooley-street represented the English people, yet all Wales feels ashamed of the licking I think it is time that the conduct of the Associa- tion responsible for the fiasco should be inquired into. We have most undoubtedly as good players in the Northern Welsh Association clubs as in the other, and we have a right to be re. presented in any taam which claims to be repre- sentative of Wales. I hope Mr Watkins will take up his pen once more on the subject. # Rhyl did not play so well as usual. Perhaps their defeat by the Druids tha previous) Saturday had demoralized them a little, certain it is they played very loosely at times. Their best men seemed to bA Criopa, J. Vaughan, T. Lewis, J. Low, and W. H. Roberts. The Colt3 meet the Heroes at Carnarvon on Saturday next, and there is sure to be a rattling game. The Heroes think they will win, but I don't. Anyhow we shall see. The Colts have been playing wonderfully of late, and last Saturday astonished the Rbylites above a bit. I was told last Saturday, too, by a Bmgor man that the licking Bangor received from the Athletics that afternoon, bad as it was, was noth- ing compared to their beating by the Colts. Kemp and Stewart, I was told, played splendidly on that occasion. On Saturday next the Colts play on their own fteld:which they understand thorough. ly. Still," play up Heroes," and may the best team win say I. » I would like to say a word or two about the shabby conduct of some fellows who would rather sneak over a hedge into the field than pay honestly to see a match. Next Saturday the gate is to be given to a poor fellow who is sadly in need of a little help, and it will be a shabby trick indeed to take advantage, and creep into the field without paying on an occasion of that kind. However, the committee have arranged to keep a sharp look out for all who try it on, and they will be prosecuted as sure as fate and serve them jolly well right. • » I am glad to hear of tue Llanberis F.C. The report of the match between them and the Swifts is by one of them I fancy, and does credit to his fairness, but I am obliged to shorten it. To judge from the report, and from what I hear from the captain of the Carnarvon Druids, it is by no means a bad team, and will, no doubt, before long, be hea d of in more important matches. Good luck to them. The Swifts also played very well. T. M. Jones scoted twice for Llanberis. The final in the Engliau cup will be played next Saturday, and I have arranged to have the result wired to Watson's, Bangor; Parnham's, Carnar- von, and Homan's, Denbigh, immediately the match is over. EN AVAST.
The usefulness of the Welsh Sanday Closing Act is a question which is continually discussed both in our own country and in England, and whenever or wherever a point in connection with the liquor traffic is raised, the working of that bill is referred to. At a special meeting of the Ruthin Town Council,held on Friday last, a petition in favour of the Sunday Closing of Public-houses in England was presented for signature by the council, and during the discussion which followed, the mayor, Mr Osbert Edwards, gave it as his opinion that the Sunday Closing Act in Wales was practically in- operative, and that there was more Sunday drink. ing, and more Sunday drunkenness, since the pass- ing of that act than before. This is the deliberate opinion of a gentleman whose words from his position and personal character are weighty, and well worth considering, and it is a serious charge agiinst those responsible for the enforcement of the laws passed (nowadays with too much difficulty, for the benefit of the people. As to the utility of such an act, the council had evidently but one opinion, as the mayor was authorized to sign the petition on its behalf. NBW STAMPS.—On and after the 1st April a new series of stamps, available for postal and telegraphic, and, up to the value of 2s 63, for inland revenue purposes, will be sold at all Post Offices throughout the United Kingdom. Stamps of the old issue will still be available, and mav be purchased as long as the existing supplies shall last. In the House of Commons on Monday, the second reading of the Cattle Diseases Bill was moved by Mr Dodson, who explained that the measure was intended to hit the happy point which would give the maximum of reasonable security to the stockholderd without hampering trade or raising the price of meat.—Mr A. Arnold thought the measure was not needed, end that it afforded means whereby a good deal of unnecessary restriction might be placed on the food supply of the people, to the detriment of the large number of consumers throughout the kingdom. He should not propose the amendment he had placed upon the paper, but reserve his right to oppose the measure, should he think it necessary, during its progress through the House.—Mr J. Howard thought the speech of the hon. member for Salford was one-eided, and urged that if cotton or wool imported from any particular country was infested with a particular parasite which upon introduction into this country had power to multiply itself almost indefinitely, the cotton spinners of Lancashire and the wool manufacturers of Brad- ford would not insist that the doctrine of free trade must be upheld in that respect.—Mr 0. S. Read, in supporting the bill, urged that the butchers were largely to blame for maintaining the price of meat. He also urged that the use of milk from diseased animals was the cause of a good deal of disease among human beings.—Mr W. E. Forster, Mr Chaplin, Mr Barclay, Mr Hastings, Mr Acland, and Mr Bryce took part in the debate, and an Irish member was speaking in Opposition to the bill when according to the rules the debate stood adjourned.

I CIRCULAR NOTES. Whatever elpe may be said of the Mayor of Ruthin there is no gainsaying the fact that be is a thorough busineas man. Last Friday, the town council sat onlv about an hour, but during that time as much business was gone through as I have seen occupyl at other council meetings three hours. I do not know how to account for it, but for some reason or other, the Ruthin council is one of the best I have ever known for not in- dulging in that very bad habit known as talking across the table." Whatever is said then is said with a purpose, and consequently time is not wasted. • • # The othprday I was told by a friend at Ruthin that be saw a cat entering a shop, and having seized a cake. ran with it home, delivered it de- murely into the hands of the boy of the house. who ate it with evident satisfaction while the cat Jooked on. We have heard a good deal of the "Ruthin cat" from time to time, but I don't think it was ever known before Ithey were so "cute" as this. # The Mayor of "Ruthin has done "what wiil be thankfully appreciated by the poor of the town. By indefatigable exertions he has succeeded in having distributed to between 300 and 400 persons a quautitv of coal at 2d per cwt., delivered at the house. This has never been done before, I believe. The price used to be 3d per tcwt., "and there was besides a charge for delivery. The mayor had also a deficiency to contend with, which has not always been experienced. As the weather has been so exceptionally open and mild, an opinion prevailed amongst those who usually subscribed to the fund that the distress was not as great as it used to be, and the first thing (the mayor had' to do was to remove this wrong impression. I have reason to think that though the winter has been very mild, the distress amoncr the poor is aq great as ever, owing to so manv being out of work. < I think the Ruthin Town Council have done only bare jivtice to the tenant "f Tyn-y-min. ffordd bv reducing the rent. X27 for seven acres of indifferent land, with a wretched house to live in, was an unreasonable rent, and I am quite surf every member of the council considered it so. I dare say it could be easilv let at more than £ °> an acre as occupation land. but anyone taking it in that way would do so with his eye upon a certain objeet. and probably make it in a few years that it would not be worth 103 an acre. A. company has been recently formed in the Vale of Clwvd similar in its designs to that com- pany so well known as the Steed Company. and the ot*"»r dar four of the best versed men in horses in the Tale of C'wyd were sent to London to pur- chase two entire horses. These gentlemen accordingly went to London and bought two very fine entire horses of the shire breed, but after they brought them to Denbigh, one of the horses was founi to be blind of an eye. This is a prom- ising beginning.

Is there frequent palpitation of the heart ? Thsse various symptoms may not be present at one time, but they torment the sufferer in turn as the dreadful diseases progresses. If the case bo nne of long standing, there will be a dry, hacking congb, attended after a time by expectoration. In very advanced stages the skin as- sames a dirty brownish apoearance, and the hands and feet are covered by a cold sticky perspiration. As the liver and kidneys become more and more diseased, rheumatic painR appear and the ncnal treatment proves entirely nuava'ling aeaiust this letter agonizing dis- order. The origin of this maladv is iadigestion or dvsoepsia. and a small quantity of the proper medicine will remove the disease if taken in its incipiency. It is most important that the disease should be promptly and properlv treated in its first stages, when a little medicine will effect a cure, and even when it has ob- tained a strong hold the correct remedy should be per- severed in nntil every t-stige of the disease is eradi- cated, until the appetite has returned, and the di- gestive organs are restored to a healthy condition. The surest and most effectual remedy for this distressing complaint is "Seigel's Curative Syrup," a vegetable preparation sold by all chemists and medicine vendors', throughout the world, and by the proprietors, A.

COMMON SENSE!. To people who are in the habit of thinking for themselves 'it is quite evident that in order to I keep the constitution in health, the first and most important thing to be attended to is that the appetite is good and the body strong. If the system is weak it is then naturally open to disease, and experience has already prove J that whatever part of the system is we&ksst that very part is most susceptible to Colds and their attendant inconveniences. In order to fortify the system and brace it up, we must resort to Tonics, and we can confidently and conscientiously recommend a preparation which is steadily and quietly gaining a firm footing in almost every household in the kingdom. We find it necessary to mention that this preparation differs from many now offered to the public. Many of the preparations now offered are worse than worthless, inasmuch as they are calculated to deceive; but we are happy to state that this mixture has been proved beyond all doubt to be a genuine invention. We advise a careful perusal of the following. Its name signifies its contents:- 0 GWIL 'f',JVA;LNS"S BITTERS, OR VEGETABLE TONIC. This preparation contains Quinine and the essence or active principles of SarsapanIIa, Saffron Lavender, Dandelion, Gentian, and Burdock, mixed in happy preparations. It has one great advantage, viz., the entire approval and confidence of the leading members of the medical pro- fession. Quinine Bitters assist digestion, promote and facilitate circulation, strengthen the nerves and muscles, and purify the blood. Patient3 who have su&ered long and suffered severely, con- tinually bear testimony to their remedial effects. Specially adapted for all diseases arising from a nervous state of the system, such as pilpitatioas, tremblings, flushing of blood to the face, nervous indigestion, low spirits, undue anxiety, neuralgic and nerve paius generally; also indi- gestion in its different forms, such as piins in the stomach, cramp, frequent sighing, sense of ful- ness and oppression, relieved by taking food. or a feeling oflangour and oppression, drowsiness, and flying pains in the region of the heart. In short, this preparation (the Quinine Bitters) is a general tonic and blood purifier, strengthening that part of the system which is weakest, and therefore moat liable to Colds and their consequences.
