ST. ASAPH. CEDINATION. There was a very large gathering at the St Beuno College on Sunday, when twenty-two candidates were presented for ordination. HOCKEY CLUB. Owing to the fact that Mr Roberts, of the Plough Hotel, has let his land until December 1st, Mr R E Griffiths, Gwerngron, has placed at the club's disposal a piece of land on the Rh endol. THE HARVEST FESTIVAL. The special preachers at the harvest festival services at the parish church will be:—English service, the I, ev E J Davies, rector of Nant- glyn. Welsh service, the Rev E Lodwick Ellis, vicar of Bettws-yn-Rhos, Abergele. He is reputed to be an excellent Welsh preacher. SPECIAL PREACHER AT BODELWYDDAN CHURCH. The morning preacher at the Marble Church on Sunday last was the Vicar of St Gabriel's. Hanover-square, London, a personal friend of the Rev Canon Trevor Owen. Fifteen years ago he was chaplain to the Duke of West- minster. He read the lessons in the vernacular at the evening service. cl VISIT OF THE REV ELVET LEWIS. The famous Welsh lyric poet preacher, the Rev Elvet Lewis, pastor of King's Cross Congregational Chapel, London, occupied the pulpit at Bethlehem Chapel on Thursday last, being the occasion of the annual preaching meetings of the denomination. There were large and appreciative congregations. The other special preacher was the Rev T Ogwen Griffith, Rhyl. SPECIAL PREACHER AT THE PARISH CHURCH The Rev T Lloyd, vicar of Rhyl, occupied the pulpit at the Parish Church on Sunday evening, and received a cordial welcome by his old parishioners. The rev gentleman is in the front rank as a pulpit orator, and for upwards of forty-five minutes the congregation were spell-bound with his choice and fluent language and the beauty of his illustrations. The exposition was based on the 42nd Psalm, 1-4 verses. By the bye his sermon at St Paul's Cathedral on St David's Day, a few years ago, was based on the same texts, but whether it was the same sermon we know not. The Vicar of Brymbo, who is here on his holidays, took the service. RING UP THE CURTAIN. With the demise of September the curtain rolls up and the citizens settle themselves for their indoor and winter entertainments. The season opens with the Tontine Social for the benefit of the society's reserve fund. The f-eventeenth is announced as the lay clerk's annual concert for the benefit of the poor.

lite resting Extracts relating to Flintshire, from -an Old Print dated 1610. [CONTINUED.] rrc spelling is slightly modernised). Piacj.s of defence are the Castles of Hint, ILtwarden, Vulgarl, Harden, Treer, KuUlaud, Mold, Yowley, and Hope, of which Flint and Hawarden are the two principal. The Castle of Flint, famous for the benefit it received from two Kings and for the refuge and relief it gave unto the third. It was founded by Henry the Second, finished by Edward the First, and long after gave harbour and entertainment to that noble but unfortunate Prince, Richard the Second, coming out of Ireland, being within her walls a free and absolute King, but no sooner without but taken prisoner bv Hecry Bolingbroke, Duke of Lancaster, losing at that time his libertie and not long after his life. Fur the Castle of Hawarden no record reioains of the first founder, but that it was held a long time by the Stewards of the Edtrls of Chester. Howbeit, their resist- ances did not so generally consist in the .strength of their Castles and fortifications as in their mountains and hills, which in times of danger served as natural bul- warks and defences unto them against the loree of enemies. As was that which st.-mdeth in a certain strait set about with woods near unto the River Allen called (')!oshu!l—that is Coleshill—where the E igiUh by reason of their disordered multitudes, not ranged close in good array, it the field, and were defeated when King .iry the Second had made as great preparation as might be to give battle m u. the Welsh, and the very King's Stir.dard was forsaken by Henry of Eisex, v■>,» w;vs Standard Bearer to the Kings of n d in right of inheritance. There is also hard by Kilken (a small village), within this county, a little well of i 3 note, that at certaine ticues riseth :<:t iitlleth after the manner of sea tides. In the south part of this country, divided the rest, is a place (in some written i:uj>ios of Autonine called Bonium) which 'v n ,v term Binchor, first a City and a Monastery of famous memory, ua i the first that is read of the world: wherein were a great number of Monks, and them divided into seven companies, every one having his several ruler assigned. None of these companies bad less than three hundred persons devoted to prayer, and to get living by their own labour for themselves and the poor, although it hath long since been utterly ruinate, so as now there is scarce seen the face and outward show of a dead Citie or Monasterie. It bath only the names of two gates remain- ing, one standing a mile distant from another, and betwixt which the River Dee now runneth, where are often found many pieces of Roman Coine and other tokens of antiquity. Another like Monasterie, but cf loiser account, stood in the Vale beneath Varis (a little Citie placed by the Romans in the Confines of this Shire and Denbighshire) and upon the bank of Elwy and Clwyd. This the Britons call Llan Elwy of the River, the Englishmen, Asaph of the Founder; and the Historiographers, .Asaphensis. It is more fampused for anti- quities than for btiildity or bravery; for about the year 560 Kentigerat Bishop of Glasco, being fled wither out of Scotland, placed here a Bishops See and erected a Monasterie. gathering together 663 in a religious brotherhood, whereof 300 that I were unlearned gave themselves to hus- bandrie and to work within the Monasterie; the rest to prayer and meditations. When he returned into Scotland he ordained Asaph, a Godly and upright man, to be Governor over this Monasterie, of whom it took the name and is called Saint Asaph. Another Monasterie of great account was at Basingworke. This shire is divided into five Hundreds, fortified with seven Castles, and twenty- eight Parishes, in which there is continual celebration of divine Service. Printed by John Speede.

Girls Friendly Society. SCHEME OF ESTABLISHING HOMES OF REST. Mrs Edwards, The Palace, St Asapb, presided over an important meeting in connection with the Girls Friendly Society, held in the Church House, Rhyl, on Thurs- day of last week, when amongst those also present were:—The Countess of Dan- donald, the Hon Mary Hughes, Miss Horatia Hughes, of Kinmel Miss Devereux, Mrs Griffith-Boscawen, Mrs Williams Wynn, Miss Floulkes, St Melangell, Rhyl Mrs W J P Storey, Rev and Mrs E J Evans, Llandrillo Mrs Currey, the Rector of Llanddulas, Vicar of Rhyl, etc. In opening the proceedings, Mrs Edwards said the scheme they had rret to consider was one of the greatest import- ance as they wore seeking to rais3 the sum of £201°°0 for lodges and homes of rest in connection with the Girls' Friendly Society, which was doing an immense amount of good, not only in this country but abroad. She read -extracts from a letter received from Durban in order to show how the efforts of the Society were appreciated in that place. Young people were constantly on the move, and they required someone to look after them, and someone to whom they could look for a h:c,I and motherly care. With the country population constantly streaming iato the towns there were always tempta- tions open to young girls, and she trusted that the Society would be helped in the work it was doing of providing lodges and homes of rest for them. The G.F.S. was watching with care and tenderness over the young women of the country (applause). Mrs Griffith-Boscawen made an earnest appeal for this branch of the G.F.S., which was doing such excellent work in various directions. They wanted to establish lodges and homes of rest at home and abroad, and she did not think they would long wait for the zC20,000 if each one con- nected with the G.F.S. gave Id. They could all do something to help Miss Hotchkis in her excellent scheme. The scheme was folly explained by Miss Hotchkis, who referred to the admirable work carried on by the Society and the Rev F S M Beiinett, of Chester, related his experience of the work of the G.F.S. in large towns, and said he had no hesita- tion in commending it to all. The Bishop of St Asaph, in proposing a vote of thanks to Miss Hotchkis and the Rev F S M Bennett, alluded to the effective work accomplished by the Society, and remarked that if he were called upon to coin a motto for the G.F.S. he would suggest "Liberty without licence, and propriety without primness (laughter and applause). He hoped the scheme wsuld be widely supported. The Vicar of RhyI seconded the motion, coupling with it tfee name of Mrs Edwards, The Palace, and it was unanimously carried. A collection in aid of the scheme wao made at the close of the meeting. It might be added that the scheme i& folly organised in St Asaph Diecese. under Miss Ffoulkes, St Melangell, Rhyl, the t, Diocesan Head for Ijodges; and Mrs E James Evans, diocesaa correspsodent for tbe scheme.

COUGHS, COLDS, and Chronic Chest Diseases absolutely Cured by Veno's Lightning Cough Cure. Whatever symptoms a cough or cold may develop the fact remains that Veno's Lightninjr Cough Cure will rapidly and assuredly bring about a cure. This pure, sate, and effective family medicine," and certified to be such by W. Lascelles-Scott, F.S.Bc., is entirely different from and infinitely superior to other so-called coukh cures in the shape of lozenges and pastilles, which contain gritty matter likely to injure the delicate throat membranes, and are, for the most part, of no practical value, except to ease the cough for the time being, and obviously utterly useless in chronic chest troubles. SofSerere are strongly recommended to avoid all such. worthless aDd, often injurious preparations, and to rely solely on Veno's, Lightning Cough Cure, a remedy that has stood tbe test of time, and to-day stands higher in. tha public estimation than any other medicine. Veno's Lightning Cough Cure not only radically and rapidly cures the most stubborn caugh or co I;:}, but strengthens the lungs,, throat, and respiatory mechanism, gives perfect ease in breatbkig, and is a certain remedy for bronchitis, asthma, cotarrh, sore throat, hoarse- ness. whooping cough, and all chest and lung troubles.

FLINTSHIRE EDUCATION COMMITTEE. MEETING AT YSCEIFIOG. A very important meeting of the Educa- tion Committee, to which the members of the Parish Councils of Ysceifiog and Caerwys, as well as the Mauagers of the Lixwm and Ysceifiog Schools, were invited, was held on Tuesday afternoon last in the Ysceifiog Schoolroom. The chair was occupied by Mr Summers, and there were also present Messrs T W Hughes, Flint; Llewellyn Jones, secretary; J Bevan Evans, Director of Education; Samuel Evans, county surveyor; Peter Jones, chairman of the Holywell Attendance Committee; and Capet Cure, Caerwys, representing the County Council. Ysceifiog Parish Council was represented by Messrs Trevor J D Jones (chairman), Edward Davie&, Samuel Edwards, and Peter Evans; while the Caerwys Councillors included Messrs J E Evans (chairman), Alfred Evans, J T Edwards, J Matthews, and Edward Matthews. There were three important questions for consideration, viz 1st, The desirability of having one central school in the parish of Yseeifiog to replace the two existing schools of Ysceifiog village and Lixwm hamlet. 2nd, To consider a memorial from the residents of Afonwen, praying for the erection of a school to accommodate the intants of the district. 3rd, To consider a complaint made by Mr John Hughes, post- master, Ysceifiog, re an annoyance caused by the erection of offices for the school children in too close a proximity to his dwelling house. On the first question Mr Trevor Junes, as one of the managers of Ysceifiog C.E. School, said that he could not see the slightest necessity for disturbing existing arrangements. Both schools had ample accommodation for all the children of the district, and a considerable sum of money had recently been spent upon them to meet the requirements of the Education Author- ity. He proposed that the two schools should be allowed to remain as heretofore. The proposition was supported by Mr Edward Davies, one of the managers of the Lixwm Council School. Mr Peter Evans, Bryneirion, however, suggested that there should be one school, built in a convenient centre, to meet the requirements of the whole parish. He found no support, as the general feeling) was in favour of letting things remain as ) they are. Mr Llewellyn Jones then produced the memorial of the Afonwen residents. Mr J E Evans questioned the genuine- ness of the document, and asked to be allowed to see it. After scrutinizing the same, he declared that there were names of children who had qualified by age to leave sohool, while there were many more name;, of children under sohool age, and who could not, by law, be compelled to attend. He could not sea the necessity of a school at Afonwen, which was only a mile distant from Caerwys school, and which afforded I ample accommodation for all. If there was any necessity at all for another school ho considered that Penycefn had first claim. In this district there were many n.ore children thin at Af'?nwen, who tnd, at tiuieSf to plod through mad and water f,,r a distance of two and three miles to attend school. His motive, however, was not so much to oppose the building of a school at Afonwen, but he stood there in the in- ter/>ah<i of the Caerwys ratepayers, who I' w vld, he was sore, strenuously oppose any, pripo^ai to add to their already beavyi bu den of a seven and fourpenny rate. If tie A'on.ven rcsidents, in the parish of Ys(eitiog, wanted a school, let them build one at their own expense and maintain it. He asked that the opinion of the parishion- ers of Caerwys be sought before deciding a question of such vital importance, and he would venture to say that an overwhelming majority would be found to oppose the scheme. Mr Alfred Evans spoke in the same strain and scorned the idea that the dis- tance was too great for tho children of Afonwen to attend Caerwys school, which seemed to be the sore point with the Afonwen to attend Caerwys school, which seemed to be the sore point with the Lneworialists. Mr John Matthews advocated the plea of ai,canoe, as also the necessity for an undenominational school in the parish, and he v a-5 supported by Mr D E Hughes, Marian Prysau. Mr Llewellyn Jones intimated that the cost of building the school would be 2500 or zC600, and that they expected a grant would be given towards it of about X200 from the £100,000 promised by Mr McKenna, the Minister of Education. Mr J E Evans doubted wnetber this sum would be obtainable, because the amount proposed to be set aside was to be spread over England and Wales, and there would be hundreds of applications far more neces- sitous districts than Afonwen. ¡ Mr Trevor Jones suggested that Mr Evans was speaking from a schoolmaster's point of view, to which Mr Evans retorted No, sir; I am espousing the cause of the ratepayers. The proposed school will not effeet me in the least, for it i& very pro- bable that my time in that capacity will have expired long belale it is established. I want to live in Caerwys afterwards4 and I, like others, do not wish to have my back broken by an additional burden." At this juncture Mr Capel offered the iron building, formerly used as a At this juncture Mr Capel Cure offered the iron building, formerly used as a Chapel, for the use of the Education I Authority as an Infant School, but some doubt was expressed as to whether the Board of Education would approve of the [ building. t In deference to the memorialists, we are ( given to understand that they were under I the impression that the school could be erected entirely with the anticipated grant t without incurring any liability on either the parish of Caerwys or Ysceifiog. In this their hopes will not be realised. The third item on the agenda was left to the Rev D Pugh, Messrs Capel Curs and Trevor J D Jones to decide as to the best means ot removing the alleged grievance of Mr Hughes, postmaster. A vote of thanks to Mr Sum mess for presiding brought a somewhat lively meet- ing to a close^
SAM'S REWARD. A grsup of senators who were prominent in se- juring- railroad rate legislation were discussing the criticism which had befallen them in conse- quence of their efforts, says a writer in the New York Times. It seemed to one of them that they were being rev.-arded much as Jndg-c Smith's nogro boy. Sam. had been rewarded. The others demanded the story This Judge Smith had just one old eTarky, said tho senator. When the judge got up in the morning, about nine o'clock, he would go out and hunt up Sam. When he found him, tnere would ensue some such colloquy as this: Sam. you good-for-nothing nigger, did you milk the cows? Yas, massa, I done milk de cows." "You haven't chopped the missus' wood?

CHARGE AGAINST SOLICITOR'S CLERK AT RHYL. I THE CASE DISMISSED. I At Rhyl sessions on Tuesday, a well- connectei young man (William Atherly Jones, solicitor's o'erk) was charged with obtaining money by false pretences. There was no prosecutor, although the Publio Prosecutor was represehted by Mr Joseph Lloyd, and Mr Medden, barrister, appeared in place of Mr Artemus Jones on behalf of the defendant. Mr Lloyd said he was unable to go on with the case of tho last sessions because ot the absenoa of the prosecutor, Carl Rhodes. He had- no knowledge of the reasons for Mr Rhodes's absence, except a letter which had bean received by the manageress of a Rbyl hotel, in which he said his case had been settled. In the meantime, the Director of Public Prosecu- tions had taken charge of the case, the object of his intervention being to see that the whole of the facts of the case were put before the magistrates. The usual practice was for a solicitor to put before the bench the facts of the case which he was prepared to prove in evidence, but in this case the only information he had he obtained from Mr Rhodes wben he was Vcting for him in his capacity as a private solicitor, and, therefore, he could not without: permisgion make use of those facts. Mr Carl Rhodes had been subpoenaed to give evidence, but he did not know what evidence he was prepared to give. Turning to where Mr Rhodes was sitting, Mr Lloyd asked if he had his permission to open the case on the lines of: the information given to him as a private solicitor. Mr J Pierce-Lewis, solicitor, said he represented Mr Rhodes, and Mr Lloyd must open his case in his own way. Mr Lloyd, said he was not allowed to make use- of that information on that answer, and woold have to state simply the facts that he was aware of apart from what Mr Rhodes bad told him confidentially. The original prosecutor charged the defendant with having obtained three sums—one of X2, and two of ;Cl-towards the end of August. The defendant was well kuown in Rhyl. He bad served in a local solicitor's office for manf years, and during that time he acquired a very profound knowledge of the theory and practice of the Law. Later on he earned some distinction by volun- teering for service in the South African war, in which he served as a second-lieutenant. After resinging his commission he had spent sometime in solicitors' o £ iees, but for some- time past he was not, seemingly, employed at any occupation, and was known to be, unfortunately, in. financial difficulties, not- withstanding which, however, he had been staying at one of the leading hotels in Rhyl during the season. The Bench asked Mr Rhodes whether he withdrew the charges he bad made against the defendant. Mr Rhodes said he did. Mr Madden: There is more than that. Did you ever charge him with defrauding you ?-I did not. e bad the documents The Chairman said he had the documents which witness had signed, making the charges. Mr Madden: Did you read those papers ? Witness: No. „ The Chairman r Bat he has signed them and anyone who can. sign papers without reading them does so en his own responsi- bility. lIe should have better sense.

It has been a subject of special study for several years by Professor Stephane Leduc, of Nantes, and others, and the application has been perfected until it is practisable to put dogs and rabbits quickly into a calm and regular sleep, with general and complete antstliesia. In rabbits, at least, the sleep can be safely prolonged to eight hours or more, although ether and chloroform bring much risk after two hours.
EYES AND THE ELECTRIC LIGHT. A special inflammation of the eyes- ophthalniia eiectrica—seems to have become common among workers with electric light apparatus, and now Dr. Cnellitzer has pointed out to the Berlin Medical Society that the trouble may result from very bi-ic-t exposure to strong glare. In an electric melt- ing of iron at an engine factory an enormous are of 50,000 candle-power was produced. Workmen passing within six or eight yards were warned not to linger, yet on the next day twelve of the men sought medical advice, reporting pain in the eyes, profuse tears, spasm of the eyelids, and headache. Ultra.- violet rays are the suggested active cause.

WOOD AS STRONG AS IRON. Official tests of the many woods native to Western u made known the extraordinary properties of vate, believed to be the longest of all known woods. Its average tensile Strength ifi 24,0001b. to the square inch., equalling that of ao'od east iron. But many .specimens are much (stronger, and one was tested up to 17-1 » tons to the square inch, which is equal to the tensile strength of wrought iron. The sawr timber of yate is probably llie strongest in the world. The tree grows to a maximum of 100ft., and has sometimes a diameter of SJ-ft. I or even 3ft. I

MAN AT THE HELM. There is no doubt in the minds of people who knew the Camcrons as to who was the head of the house in every sense of the word. So accus- tomed were the C:) morons. large and small, t look to "father" for advice and opinions 011 every subject that they unconsciously afforded more or less amusement to their friends. D« you mind this extreme cold weather, Mrs. Cameron? someone a*kecl her one icy winter day. and the little lady smiled cheerily. Oh. father says it's much healthier for every- body than last winter." she answorod. "Ho savs we all feel much better than we did." Indeed! the friend, with a spico of malice. "I thought I heard that all of you, ex- cept Mr. Cameron, had been ill with throafc troubles." Yes, so we have," admitted the adoring wife, but. as father says, he knows just when w<v got our colds. It was that time the weather changed so suddenly, while he was in New York, and he doesn't intend to let it hap- pen again."
A STEADY TRADE. There were only three houses in the little hamlet on Capo Cod. but an orator from a near- by summer colony was minded to rouse the civio conscience by declaring- that trade was the be- ginning- of wisdom. "And," said he, '^1 assuro you that it is not capital half so much as it is in- itiative that is needed in a place like this." The three citizens spat collectively and simul- taneously, lookin.ar straight *thead. "That kind o" reminds me." drawled one, without shifting his gazo. "o' Harve UpLam an* Dan Winsor, down the beach a ways. Harve had a shanty an' Dan had a shanty, an' they both had some plug tobacco. One day Harvc went to Dan's »n' bought ten cents' wuth o' tobacco, an' the next day Dan went to Harvo an' bought ten cents' wuth o' tobacco off him. They continued these sales scv'ral days, concluded the speaker. They both pot all tobacco they wanted, an' Harve nn l.y retired on the dime."
FACTS ABOUT JUPITER. 4j On New Year's Day. 1907, the planet Jupiter was 480.205,600 miles from the sun. and 388,991.400 from the earth. Both worlds for ever move from west to east in direction, alway6 opposite to the hands of a watch. Here are some brief facts about Jupiter: Greatest distance from the sun, 504.000,000 miles; least distance from the sun, 4&2.000.000 miles; average distance from the sun. 483.000,000 11 3 miles; Time of one revolution around sun. 11*86 years; velocity on its orbit per second, 8 miles? diameter, equatorial. 88,200 miles; diameter, polar, 83.000 miles; larger than the earth, 1.283 times: surface greater than that of thw earth, 119 times; quantity of matter preatcf than that, in tho earth. 316 times; time of on» • revolution on it<< axis. 9hrs. 55m> per cent, greater than that of wa > Umber tm moons known, 7.
