Similar Missions are to be con- ducted during the n°xt three months in Dartmoor, Portland, Hull. Lancaster, Kuutsford, Bristol, Birmingham, Ipswich, Winchester, Bodmin, Warwick, Dsvizes, Nottingham, Northallerton, and other Prisons. These Prison Missions of the Church Army have the warm approval of the Prison Commissiorers. and the Missioners invariably receive the greatest kindness and help from all the officers of the Prison. His UNLUCKY DAY.—Probably the rrost wonderful story of a man's unlucky day that has over been told appears in the Lancet. A patient, at the ftg- of ten years, fractured his righ index finger. It happened on August 2Gth. When thirteen years old he fractured his left leg below the knee, through falling from horse-back, also on August 2G.h. When fourteen years of age he fractured both bones of the left forearm by stumbling, his arm striking the edge of a brick (August 2Gth) In another year, oa August 26th, when fifteen years of age, he had a compound fracture of both legs through a pit accident. After this he did not work on August 26th for twenty- eight years, but in the year 1890 he forgot his fateful day and went to work, with the result that he sustained a compound fracture of the left leg. After this he has studiously avoided working on August 26th. BRECON CONGREGATIONAL COLLEGE. This week a special meeting of the Executive Committee of the Brecon Memorial Congregational College is to tf;) held to consider further the question of the appointment of a principal for the college in succession to the late Rev Dr J Morris. The sub- committee appointed at the last annual meeting of the executive recommend that the post of principal be offered to the Rev David Rowlands, B.A. (Dewi Mon), who has filled the post of vice-principal at Brecon for over a quarter of a century. The meeting this week will have another important question to consider, namely, that of the appoint- ment of a third member of the teaching staff, for which the following names have been mentioned Rev D W Vaughan, M.A., of Kentish Town, London; Mr John Thomas Miles, M.A., of Mansfield College, Oxford the Rev John Evans, B.A., of Brecon the Rev J Lloyd Williams, B.A,, of Tenby and Mr Wm Charles, M.A., of Treorky. A SPLENDID TABLE GAME —Messrs Raphael Tnck and Sons, the well-known fine art publishers, Coleman-street, City, London, have just issued a little novelty, entitled The Game of Fable Cricket," which we have no doubt will be much called for both by young and old. It is an excellent medium for young beginners to become acquainted with the rules of the national game, of w hich it is the exact indoor counterpart. Table Cricket will be found quite a pleasant pastime to the enthusiast and amateur alike, more particularly in the winter months when "out-of-door" cricket cannot be indulged in. Despite the multifarious articles of which the game is composed, comprising as it does fifteen well- pi-inted figures, fifty balls, plan of the field, scoring Sheets, rules, etc., the price has been fixed at the tow limit of one shilling, which figure will deubtless ensure its lasting popularity. CHRIST CHURCH, CARMARTHEN.—The harvest thanksgiving services were held at this Church on Tuesday. The Rev W H A Walters, Treffgarn, preached in the morning; and the Rev C F Harrison, Haverfordwest, in the evening. The musical portion of the service included Marbecke's Communion Service.
