I DEATH OF AN ANGLESEY CLERGYMAN. The Rev Thomas Meredith, rector of Llan- ddeusant and Llanbabo, Anglesey, died at his residence on Saturday last, in his 80th year. He was educated at Queen's College, Birming- ham, ordained deacon by the Bishop of Bangor in 1861, and priest in the following year. He was curate of Amlwch 1861-1864, and of Glan- ogwen 1864-1867. In the latter year he was preferred to the rectory of Newborough, Angle- sey, where he laboured with great energy and success until 1882, when he was promoted to Llanddeusant. He will be missed by a large circle of friends. He was a man of very strong personality and of great determination. The funeral took place at Newborough church- yard on Wednesday.
AN UNFORTUNATE LEAP AT BEAUMARIS. On Monday, Richard Jones, 22, son of Richard Jones, Hendrewen Farm, Glanadda, Bangor, walked along the top of Beaumaris Castle walls. Coming to a gap in the walls that offered a tempting jump, he essayed the leap, but found the apparently solid piece of wall which he aimed for was nothing but a mass of ivy, through which he crashed down the chasm in the mighty walls, rebounding from one wall to the other till he fell senseless to the ground, 40 feet below. He now lies dangerously injured at the residence of a local doctor. The incident created the greatest excitement among a large number of people who were attending an eisteddfod which was being held within the Castle walls.
THE CASE OF THE REV W. O. JONES. MEETING AT FESTINIOG: Despite the heavy downpour of rain, the Assembly-rooms at Blaenau Festiniog on Wed- nesday evening were crowded with a large and enthusiastic audience, which had met together for the purpose of hearing the Rev W. O. Jones explain his position with regard to the appeal he had lodged with the Quarterly Association. The chair was taken by Mr Gadlys Williams, of Waenfawr, and a resolution supporting the appeal and pledging the meeting to use every legitimate effort to ensure its acceptance was moved by Mr Lewis, of Liverpool, and seconded by Mr Robert Jones, Trawsfynydd. The resolu- tion was passed, with one dissentient, by an audience numbering nearly 1500, most of whom were quarrymen. The Rev W. O. Jones explained the reasons for his appeal, and argued in support of the conditions he had laid down— conditions which made for the truth, and which conditions which made for the truth, and which would not in any way assist him were he guilty. He gave the facts as to the early history of the matter, and claimed that he asked not for mercy, but for justice. A trial such as he sug- gested could be granted under the rules of the connexion, and would secure justice not only for himself, but for every minister who might be similarly situated in the future. During a speech of over an hour, the reverend gentleman, who appears to be feeling severely the strain of the last few months, had the full sympathy of his listeners.—Mr G. C. Rees, of Birkenhead, who spoke in support, said that they were all looking forward to the end of this month, be- cause the connexion was to be tested. The confidence of members had been shaken by the action of the Liverpool Monthly Meeting, and it was to be hoped that confidence would be re- stored by the granting of the appeal, with its conditions. The meeting terminated with a vote of thanks to the chairman.
FOOTBALL, WELSH SENIOR CUP—FINAL TIE. OSWESTRY v. DRUIDS. These teams met on the Wrexham Racecourse an Monday, before 7000 spectators. The ground was in grand condition, and the weather wast brilliantly fine but boisterous. Oswestry kicked with the wind, and immediately got away, and, nearly scored: The Druids retaliated, and looked! dangerous, Kelly saving a good try. Oswestry again became aggressive, and after receiving a couple of corners, Storey scored' for them, the igame now having been in progress for ten min- utes. Ephraim Williams dashed away in bril- liant style, and looked like equalising, but George Richard averted danger. Oswestry, with the assistance of the gale, raced' off, and Roose had some stiff work to d'o. The wind gave an ioadvertant corner to the Salopians, but this wa.s got away. Operations, however, con- tinued in the Druids' territory for some time, butt Oswestry were temporardy repulsed, the Druids paying a brief visit to the other end. The venue changed rapidly, and the Druids were doing remarkably well in face Off the almost overwhelming wind. A hot attack on Tracey's quarters ended abruptly, and Oswes- try made tracks, gaining an abortive corner. Roose had a terrible Job to negotiate a shot by Party, and a few seconds later Oswestry only missed by inches. The Druids' custodian was defending; in tbriUiamt style. Goodrich headed over when a goal (looked tolerably cer- tain. E. Williams was frustrated by Edwards, when the former essayed a shot, and after a corner to Oswestry, the Druids again came away, Butler testing Tracev, who came tOo earth in clearing. Play was fast and excit- ing, both ends being visited with marvellous frequency. A corner to Oswestry was got away, and then Richards intercepted a. move by the Druids' left. From now till the inter- val, play was in front of the Druids' citadel, but no further scoring took place before the whistle sounded, Roose',s charge being often peppered. Half-time score Oswestry, 1 goal; Druids, nil. Nothing further was scored in the second half, and Oswestry won by a gOM to nil. # WELSH JUNIOR CUP.—FINAL TIE. WREXHAM VICTORIA v. SINGLETON AND COLE'S. Plaiyed on Wrexham Racecourse on Monday. A high wind completely spoiled the game. Singleton and Cole's had the advan- tage of Tt, and pressed for ten minutes, gain- ing an abortive corner, after the Victoria had obtained a similar advantage. The Shrews- bury team pressed strongly, and, with the aid of the wind, secured numerous corners. The Vi)cs., however, more than held their own under the circumstances, and the interval arrived with the score sheet blank. On resum- ing, the Vies. attacked severely, and, after get- ting ipeveral corners, Smith1, scored (from1 a pretty pass by the right wing. Singleton's rarely managed to cross the centre line, and their goal experienced many narrow escapes. The Wrexham team continued to harass their opponent's' defence, but were unable to aug- ment the score. Final: Wrexham Victoria, 1 goal; Singleton and Cole's, nil. DENBIGHSHIRE LEAGUE. CHIRK v. BROUGHTON UNITED. At Chirk on Monday. The homesters, with the advantage of the wind, were pressed severely, and Millership eventually registered a goal, Chirk combined prettily, but the wind militated against accurate shooting. Resuming, Brough- ton, who are league champions and undefeated;, gradually asserted their superiority. Davies equalised from a pass bv Moss. Chirk after- wards attaoked persistently, but failed to soore. Final: Chirk, 1 fYoal; Broughton, 1. NORTH WALES COAST LEAGUE. On Friday, Llanrwst, 4; Penmaffllmawr, 3.

AN ANGLESEY GENTLEMAN DROWNED. BOATING FNrALITY AT HYTHE. On Thursday last, a boating fatality occurred in Southampton Water, near Hvtbe, which re- sulted in the death by drowning of Mr James Laurie, the steward of the Drummond estate, and the son of the late Mr Andrew Laurie, and Mrs Laurie, of Plas Meigan, Anglesey. The de- ceased was also a brother of Mr J. S. Laurie, of the well-known firm of Messrs J. Rice Ro- berts and Laurie. Beaumaris. It appears that Mr Laurie and his son, who had just returned home for the Easter vacation, went out sailing in a small boat in Callandis Creek, near their h: me, and then headed for a place called Calsert. The wind proved too strong, and the boat was swamped and sank, both gentlement being thrown into the water. Unfortunately, Mr James Laurie was unable to swim, and despite the son's heroic efforts to save his father, he sank. Mr Andrew Laurie, the son, managed to swim a dis- tance of about 40 yards, but when in compara- tive safety, he collapsed, and was unconscious for some hours after the tragedy. The disaster had been witnessed by a. woman living at Cad- lands Quay, and Mr Andrew Laurie was speedily rescued from his precarious position on the soft m/ud. Medical attendance was! obtained, and later in the day, he was reported te» be out of danger. Meanwhile, men from Hythe and the neighbourhood had been making attempts to find the bodv of Mr James Laurie, and shortly after four o'clock, it was> brought to the surface. The father had only recently purchased the boat for the use of his son, and the sad termination to their amusement has cast a deep gloom over the whole district where the deceased was well known a.nd hisrhly esteemed. Mr James Laurie leaves a widow, one son, and several daughters to mourn his loss.

( Copyright.) DOLLY'S ESCAPADE. Dolly Rowan had been shamefully spoilt from the day of her birth, and when she reached thf, mature age of seventeen, no member of the family, or household, dreamt of disputing her will. There was no harm in the girl, and the spoiling had not produced very evil results, but it made Dolly what is termed in certain circles, "a handful," to her aunt, Mrs. Kerr, who, in a weak moment, had yielded to her pretty niece's wish and taken her to spend a few months with her in Rome. Dolly Rowan had not found in that wondrous city the delight she had anticipated. Her soul was as yet unawakened, and she felt more bored than interested by the antiquities which attracted so many visitors, and fonnd the sedate pension wherein Mrs. Kerr resided decidedly dull. The only creature in the house who was young, pretty and light-hearted as herself, was Carita, the Italian maid, who was told off to wait specially on a few of the most favoured English ladies. To her conversations with the girl, Dolly owed the great advance she made in her Italian. It was astonishing how quickly both girls managed to understand each other, and the English damsel found in her attendant much sympathy for the dreary existence which she led without gaiety or young companionship. Many were the tales related to Dolly of the daring deeds of two American ladies, who had spent last winter in the same pension with a severe chaperon, and who, with Carita's aid, had contrived, in spite of that lady, to have a good time" of it. When Carnival week came round, Dolly had arrived at that stage of ennui in which any break is welcomed. She was ready for any mad freak just "for the fun of it," and, after much consultation with her maid, and after Mrs. Kerr had refused with horror to take her to any of the masked balls, duly resolved to see what was to be seen on her own account. Carita procured two masks and dominos, and when the decorous contingent in the pension was fast asleep, the pair stole out and made their way to one of the theatres given up for that evening to a masked ball. Dolly was in the seventh heaven of delight. But, as all pleasant experiences must come to an end, the waiting maid hurried Dolly off when she saw that most of the other people were taking their departure. It would not do to be out too late, she. explained, and, thoroughly satisfied with the result of her escapade, Dolly Rowan turned her steps homewards. Then came retribution. The streets we a mass of people, most of them masked, and p to any mischief, and in a particularly crowded spot, Carita and Dolly got separated, and neither could find the other. Then Dolly began to be a little frightened, but as she knew her way to the pension, she felt more anxiety for the servant than for herself. She got out of the main street as soon as possible and hurried along pretty comfortably, but within about five minutes' walk of her refuge, she was met by a group of noisy young men. Had they been Italians they would have taken no notice of the masked figure coming towards them, or merely have passed with a joke or a compliment. But being Englishmen and slightly tipsy, they were unaccustomed to Carnival pranks, and stopped Dolly, and, in their garbled Italian, insisted upon escorting her to her destination. "Let me pass, if you please. I am in a hurry," cried she. Her tormentors now had a double zest in teasing her, and, knowing they could speak in their own tongue, surrounded the girl and I insisted that she should unmask. As one of the most reckless endeavoured to take off the mask, Doily's temper rose to a climax. Cowards!" she cried, and, with all her strength, she struck the young man in the face. Her cry brought another actor on the scene. What are you fellows doing to this woman ? Never mind, Sheldon," answered the other. "This is our affair. We only want to see these hidden charms." Dolly looked anxiously at the new-comer. He was exceedingly handsome, but regarded her with rather a contemptuous expression, and made a movement as if to pass on, not deem- ing the affair worthy of his notice. "Oh, do not go," cried Dolly. "Do not leave me with those tipsy men." He hesitated and looked sharply at her. If you have a spark of gentlemanly feeling, you will not refuse to help me," she implored. I A peal of mocking laughter greeted her words. "You have made a conquest, Sheldon," ex- claimed one, "but you shall not walk off with our prize." "As this lady has appealed to me, I shall certainly protect her," he replied, haughtily, and, in spite of the jeers and angry remarks of I the rest, he offered Dolly his arm, and asked her in which direction she wished to go. It was a new experience to her to feel thoroughly ashamed of herself, but so it was. I It needed no great penetration to perceive that, although Mr. Sheldon had come to her help, he did not regard her as very deserving of his respect. They went a few steps in silence, but as soon as the noisy crew of young men had turned into another street, Dolly stopped and begged her escort to leave her. "You had better not risk being again in- eulted," he said, coldly. "Norespectable woman should be out alone here at night." I know now I was wrong to come," cried the repentant Dolly. "I don't want you to I know where I am staying. I "As to that, you need not be uneasy," answered Sheldon, lightly. "I am leaving Rome in the morning, and even if I were not I I can assure you that I should not interest myself in your identity." "I suppose you despise me for coming out ?" exclaimed the girl. Her companion made no reply. He did think her quite unworthy of his interest or respect, but this he could not explain. "I wonder who she is," he mused, as he lit his cigar after he left Dolly at the door. "I think she must be a lady, young and frightened too, and serve her jolly well right. No girl with any sense of propriety would mask and start off alone to do the Carnival at night. Fancy a man marrying a girl of that sort." Yet that was exactly what Mr. Sheldon wanted to do six months later, when he met Dolly Rowan in her own home. He was staying with a friend for the shooting, and had with most o £ the other men fallen a victim to the charms of the petted little beauty. Dolly had recognised him at once, and was afraid that the recognition was mutual, but, of course, Mr. Sheldon never for a moment con- nected the lonely wanderer in the Roman street with the only daughter of one of the leading landowners of Drysdeen. The girl struggled with all her might against the fascination the young man exercised over her. The very fact of knowing that he had despised her seemed to put him on quite a different footing to all her other admirers, who were her humble slaves. Her treatment of him was a puzzle to James Sheldon. He could not understand why she, who was so merry and charming in her manner to other men, rolled herself up in a cold reserve when he addressed her. Manlike, he was the more determined to win her for the difficulties in his way. As ill- luck would havo it, one of the other men stay- ing at the shooting-lodge was Lieutenant Barry, the man who had been most insolent to Dolly on that ever to be regretted night. One evening j after a dinner-party given by the Rowans, conversation turned on Rome, and Barry began to chaff Sheldon about the mysterious fair one he had rescued. Dolly's blush bewildered the man who loved her. Could it be, he wondered, that, after all, she was jealous and to assure her on the point, he indulged in a most scathing denunciation of the conduct of the masked girl in Rome. Dolly could stand it no longer. She made her escape to the terrace, and paced agitatedly up and down, until she was joined by James Sheldon. "Why have you left us ? I have been longing to tell you how I love yon, tel ask you to be my wife. Have I any chance? You have always seemed to dislike me." "It is utterly impossible that I should marry you," replied Dolly, as soon as she could command her voice. In the name of Heaven, why ? Simply because I am the girl you helped that night in Rome, and for whom you have just expressed such a profound contempt." Instead of the scorn and disapproval she ex- pected on the part of hor lover, her avowal was received with hearty laugh, and the next moment she was held fast in his arm'i. eTa a END.]

(Copyrigfd. ) THE DEMON'S POOL. No one who visits the Rocky Mountain Park can fail to be struck with the uncanny beauty of the Demon's Pool. The last time I was there a man told me the origin of the name "Demon's Pool." "Once upon a time," he said (he was a trapper, and some said his lonely, wild life had affected his brain), "a veteran hunter of the Peigan Indians went forth in search of game, and wandered to the vicinity of the lake! Fortune was against him the mountain sheep and deer were too wily for even such an old hand as himself, and nothing resulted from the crack of his rifle except a few echoes and things and they weren't good to eat. So after many days, during which he smoked, and chewed gum to keep himself alive, he turned his weary footsteps homewards, and reached the west end of the Demon's Pool." "I don't believe an Indian ever chewed gum in his life," I interrupted. The old fellow glared at me, but went on "There he camped, and laid down to sleep to forget his hunger. Before long he awoke to find the stars shut from view by storm- clouds, the wind shrieking through the trees. snow falling, and the devil to pay generally. So he got up and started for the family tepee. All night long he stumbled and crawled, faint with hunger and chilled with the bitter wind, alon £ the rough shore of the lake. At last the storm-clouds began to lift and day dawned, so he squatted down under the shelter of some bushes to rest. As he sat the waters of the lake began to bubble and seethe, then heaved slowly upwards and from their centre peered a horrible form, half fish and half devil. Next moment a terrific clap of thunder shook the mountains, blackness covered the earth, and when light again forced its way through the gloom, the monster had disappeared. That night the hunter reached camp more dead than alive, and told to those of his tribe who had wandered north with him of the frightful spectre he had seen. Then and there they christened the sheet of water The Demon's Pool.' So much for the Indian legend. At the time it was told to me I was staying at Black Horse Gulch, one of the most beautiful spots in the Rockies, and had ridden over that morning to the Demon's Pool, intent on getting some of the celebrated trout for which this weird piece of water is so justly famous. With me was a friend—Tom Brandon, also an English- man. The nine-mile ride from Black Horse Gulch in the early morning air had invigorated us, and put us in the best possible of moods, so we stood the old trapper a drink, politely intimated that he threw a hatchet very credit- ably, and then ran lightly down the steps of the mountain inn to the little landing-place. Having chosen our craft, we stepped in, arranged the tackle handy, and dipped oars. It was a perfect morning. The sun was shining brilliantly; the water looked like an immense blazing jewel; and Tom broke into song from sheer gladness that he was alive. "For Heaven's sake," a hoarse voice called after us, "don't sing, sir; don't sing. He don't like it; it angers him." It was the old trapper, who had followed us to the landing-place, and who now stood pointing significantly to the water with trem- bling, wrinkled hand. We laughed. Poor old chap said Tom. "What a nuisance it must be to be so super- stitious Well, I won't sing, if it worries him," and we pulled away to the centre of the lake. Now, as this same lake happens to be twelve miles long and a mile and a half wide, we had no lack of choice of likely spots for trout, but I am bound to say that we were singularly unfortunate, for never a bite had we. We had opened our basket of provisions, made a hearty meal, and, having rowed slowly towards the west end of the lake, were again casting our lines overboard, when Tom exclaimed "By Jove, Bob I hope we're not going to have a squall. Look at that cloud. They say this is as bad as the Lake of Geneva for sudden storms." As he spoke a faint ripple shewed on the surface of the water. "Oh, it's nothing," I said; "it will soon pass over. Even if we get a bit of a wetting it doesn't matter much." It grew darker. Tom said no more, but I fancied he looked a little uneasy. The idea tickled me. I began to laugh. "Lrpon my word, I believe old Henri's story has positively impressed you.< You look quite pale, old chap," I said. Tom did not reply, but again glanced up at the clouds. We've a much better chance of getting trout now," I went on "it was too light for them before." In the mountains around us the wind began to moan gently. All the brilliant colour had gone out of the water, though it still retained its marvellous clearness. Just to keep up Tom's spirits, I thought I would sing a bit, and was rollicking through a comic opera refrain, when a sound from Tom made me pause. He was as white as death, and staring at something in the water. "What's the matter ? I asked then, follow- ing the direction of his startled eyes, saw a strange sight. Close to our boat the water wus seething and bubbling, and gradually rising out of it appeared a hand and arm. It was white and well-shaped, but the long, cruel-looking fingers seemed to be slowly clutching for some- thing. Without stopping to wind up our reels, without a word, we seized our oars and pulled frantically for the shore. The hand disappeared, and we breathed more freely. But our relief was of short duration, for almost immediately it was thrust out again, and this time it held our boat fast in its loathsome grip, as the sudden and violent lurch to one side testified. Deep under the water, and yet quite plainly—so wonderfully clear is this extra- ordinary and horrible lake—I saw a hideous form and felt instinctively that the ripples and seethings of the surface were caused by its ghastly, noiseless laughter. And slowly, slowly, the boat listed still further over. Paralysed with fear, I sat motionless, staring rigidly at the writhing, grinning monster. Suddenly a yell from Tom recalled me to life, "Your knife! Quick!" he shouted.. "There, beside you Throw it me Tearing my eyes away from the devilish object, I looked towards Tom, and then I saw that the horrible hand had shifted its position, and, instead of holding the side of the boat, as heretofore, had fastened on to my friend's wrist, and was slowly but surely dragging him out of the boat. Stupidly, and but half- conscious, I pushed the knife to him. And then began a gruesome struggle, while I, sitting there frozen wih horror, could do nothing but look on. I saw the sharp hunting-knife cutting through the clinging fingers; I saw the blood trickling into the boat; but the fingers did not relax their hold. They seemed to be made of steel. Tom fought like one possessed. He had been dragged half out of the boat now, one shoulder was in the water, great drops of sweat had burst out on his forehead, and I could see that a deadly faintness was coming over him. For one second he closed his eyes, gasping. And in that instant of time the hand loosed its hold of his wrist, and was flung round his neck in a horrid embrace. With a shuddering scream of awful despair, my poor friend was dragged out of the boat, and into the black depths of the lake. Down—down. And I—I sat and watched them—watched that frightful struggle; saw Tom's ashen face, and eyes mad with terror, being drawn ever deeper down-O God 1 why was the water so clear!—saw the red stain that followed them, and saw at last—nothing. When I recovered consciousness, the boat was lazily tapping against the land-stage of the hotel. The proprietor and one or two boatmen were bending curiously over me. Where am I ? What is it? I asked, feebly. "You were caught in the squall, sir. There has been an accident; the other gentleman—he fell overboard." "No, no I" I said, shuddering. "He was dragged over. A hand—a white, cruel, devilish hand—pulled him over." I saw them glance at each other; and after I had been put to bed and the doctor had arrived, I heard the word "sunstroke." Just as dusk fell, the old trapper crept in. "They say I am off my head," I said. "But you, surely you know I speak the truth." Yes, it is true," he whispered. I know; I have seen it. They say I am silly and you have had sunstroke. But we know what we have seen, you and I." (TuB £ SD.]
