To be stung by a Jelly Fish is not a pleasant experience, and may prove very troublesome unless you have Homocea handy to apply, when all pain and swelling instantly vanishes. Homocea is an invaluable remedy at the Seaside; should be used for Sunburn, Blisters, Wasp-Stings, and all kinds of Insect Bites. Use also for Cuts, Burns, Toothache, Rheumatism, and all Skin Troubles. It will stop an Influenza Cold like magic- l r T v 1. T >_■ "BLAIR ATHOL, HOYLAKB. Dear Sirs,—On the 17th of June, which I think was one of the hottest days of the year, I spent the day on Hilbre Island, and was unfortunate enough to get my feet sunburned and badly stung by Jelly Fish. By the day following my feet had swoollen and were inflamed to such an extent that I was quite unable to stand on them. For a week I treated them with carron oil, hazeline, and hazeline cream without any satisfactory results. I then thought I would try 'Homocea,' I persevered with it, and after applications at intervals during 24 hours, I was agreeably pleased to find the swelling and inflammation rapidly disappearing. After two days use of it I was able to stand, and now, with the exception of a little weakness about the ankles, my feet are all right again.—Yours truly, E. S. SMYTH." If 'Homocea' had been used at once a whole week's suffering would have been saved. Homocea is sold by all Chemists at i/ij £ and 2/9 per box; or can be had direct from ike Homocea Co,% w.

Correspondence. [In no case are we responsible for the opinions expressed in this column.] To the Editor. THE PARISH COUNCILS ACT. SIR, -In your paper of September 14th, inst., you had some interesting reading on the Parish Councils Act, by our worthy townsman Mr J. Biud, and a Colwyn Bay old Rydalian (Mr VV. Allen, M. P.) who has proved himself a consistent promising Radical statesman. It seems to me that you gave us them out in the nick of time, and none too soon, and I hope that Colwyn Bay and district have read them, and will benefit by Mr Allen's advice to the Cheadle electors, that is, that they must heckle their candidates when they come forward, trusting we will do the same; we have had too much of buying cats in bags, the time has come that we must get to know what they intend to do for the place if returned, and, if we cannot get plain statements from them, I hope every elector will consider such candidates unworthy of our votes. I believe many like myself have made their minds up that we must scatter the present Colwyn Bay District Local Board. Now we have the oppor- tunity with other parts of the country, we never had before, we have got the Monopolists on the level of the rest of the electors, with the protection of the ballot-box, so we ought to be careful of what we do at this next election, because it will be our own faults if we return men to the District Board and Board of Guardians to watch their own interest again in the future, as they have done in the past, instead of the interest of the whole Dis- trict. We ratepayers have very important ques- tions that will have to be grappled with very soon, and I think the ballot-box is the place to settle them, such a question as the cemetery for this district, which is a question that has been before the Local Board for nearly two years, and cannot be put one side and delayed much longer; I, a ratepayer, some 18 months back through your paper protested, and I am still of that opinion, that is, against buying land for a burial ground with the rates, toward or in connection with either Established Church or any other Church or Chapel, without it being all and entirely in the hands of the future District Council. I am certain that the Bishop of St Asaph will not improve my body or soul nor the ground that I am to be buried in. We have several other questions that we ought to open our eyes to. We have here monopolists that are costing the ratepayers scores of pounds every year; at present they are powerfully represented on the Board. I trust that every elector will be alive to his duly and to the benefit of the whole district and not (as hitherto) to a vacillating policy towards the well-to-do, and degrading the poor and helpless though they stood in the rate-book superior to even some members of the Board itself. Glyndwr, WILLIAM DAVIES Colwyn Bay.
THE COLWYN BAY LOCAL BOARD AND THE BOATS. SIR. -In your issue of the 14th, I notice that the Colwyn Bay Local Board has decided to engage a qualified person to interest himself in the safety of pleasure-seekers in boats on the water, for the sum of 30/. This I consider a step in the right direction, and not a moment too soon. The duties of this appointed gentleman I gather are to be, that he appoints men qualified to take charge of pleasure-boats (open or decked, I presume) and also certifies boats of different dimensions to carry passengers according to their various sizes. May I ask, Mr Editor, how much work does the above Local Board expect to get done by this imporant officer, for the sum of 30/. Surely the inspection of men and boats, with the safety of the public in view, ought to be of more value than 30/. The disasters at Barmouth and Morecambe this sum- mer, ought to stimulate our Commissioners and Local Boards to look well after the inspection of men and boats who are hired by the public for their pleasure. And what, may I ask, are the qualifications of a licensed boatman to be? If it is simply paying a few shillings per year, for the renewal of a license, by any one who may chance to have a boat, I think the Local Board would serve the public much better by investing their 30/ in some more profitable outlay. And with regard to the boats, what rule is used when measuring the carrying capacity of such boats; for it was stated at the inquest held after the Barmouth dis- aster, that the boatman said his boat was certified to carry ten, whereas she capsized with nine. Probably the Committee appointed by the Colwyn Bay Local Board, whose duty it is to look after the beach boats, etc., can give a definite reply to my simple (but very important) questions for the benefit of residents and the visiting public.- Yours etc., T. E.
THREATENED STOPPAGE OF THE VE- HICULAR TRAFFIC AT GROES BRIDGE. SIR,-A very serious wrong is going to be done to the district and I hope you will raise your voice against it. I refer to the closing for at least nine months, probably twelve months, of the Groes Bridge and the diversion of the traffic up narrow and steep lanes, in some parts positively danger- ous for vehicles and pedestrians. The County CouncillSurveyor appears to have condemned the proposals of our Local Board Surveyor to erect a temporary bridge, and offered an alternative of roadways that no carriage-proprietor or trades- man will venture his horses along. It seems monstrous that a highway should be stopped altogether and I think our County-Alderman and Councillor should enter their protest and protect our interests. It is idle to pretend that either the proposed diversion is our only remedy, or that a temporary bridge could not be made during the making of the new one. If this is a sample of LOCAL Government, it is little improvement on the old-fashioned days. A brief consideration of the peril to which carts and horses will be exposed, and the serious inconvenience to trade that must ensue, should bring forth such an expression of feeling that will lead to a remedy.—Yours faith- fully, W. F. WILLIAMS-REES.
School Life at Colwyn Bay. The following, taken from The Children's Hour column of the Manchester Weekly Times (Sept. 14th, 1894), is of local interest :— FROM AN OLD FRIEND. I am always especially glad to hear from those who in past years were interested in my columns. It is nearly nine years since Aunt Mary, Laugha- way, and I began to gather the young folks about us, so that many who were children when we be- came acquainted with them are now grown men and women and to learn that these still remember us, and find pleasure in the Children's Hour, is highly gratifying. For this reason, among others, we were charmed to see the appended communi- cation, and Aunt Mary and Laughaway join with me in heartily congratulating Hilda and Oscar on the success they have attained. L-ope isar.k, Roiton-le-Moors, September. Dear Uncle Oldman,-Although I am one of your old members, I still take an interest in your G. G., and feel I should like occasionally lo write to you if by so doing I shall not trouble or hinder w you. I have left school now, and hope to compete for your Christmas prizes if, as formerly, yo,J offer such for those who are too old to do so re- gularly. Hilda returns to school on Tuesday, Oscar on Monday, though his is only a day school. Hilda, I think, is having another year at Colwyn Bay. For the last two years she has passed the College of Preceptors' examination, and next year we expect will enter for the Senior Oxford. These holidays she also came home with two prizes—the drilling and mathematics. She had the drilling last year, too. Oscar has also two prizes-the drawing and shorthand, and a certifi- cate for reading. They are all to be presented next term. Hilda's at school, where the" head will invite a number of friends, the minister of the chapel we attend to present them, and attogetfic" they are delightful afternoons, when, between times, the different girls play, sing, &c. I wish I could be there to clap. Oscar goes to the Church Institute, and there, too, the prizes are given annually, and as at Pen-Rhos, at the end of every summer term, but are presented in Novem- ber at the town hall, where the mayor presents them, and the place is always thoroughly crowded, though you can only go by tickets," which, of course, the boys get for their relatives and friends. I shall be there this year, I am glad to say, as it is a splendid sight to see. Sometimes 100 or evert more go up one by one for their valuable prizes. When it is over I will write and tell you all about it, and what Oscar's were. You see. thev both came home laden with honours. The annuat Lancashire agricultural show has this year been held in Bolton. It was open for the first three days of our holidays. We went on the first tor the whole day it was splendid. Mother, Hilda, and I had tickets for the horse jumping, while father and Oscar studied the machines. 1 Earl of Derby gave a splendid silver cup for the best cart horse, and the Countess presented it- There was almost everything you could think Of, from horses to vegetables and grasses. I fell 11 love with a go-it the carriages and carriage horses were magnificent and we all enjoyed the day very much. One Monday we went to Ent- wi^tle, a lovely little country place a few rniles from heie. We walked round the reservoir, which is a lai ge one, and there close to the waters edge was a hedegog, dead, but quite flexible. Poor little thing Perhaps if we had been a felv minutes earlier we might have saved it. Next we went into the glen, where we had our buns, &c.» and from there right on to the moors. Oh, hoW lovely Nothing but mounds covered with almost full blown heather, for miles around; you cart imagine how nice the colour was. It was wild' rugged, lonely, and a beautiful stillness lay over all and it was here that we made our longest rest. Father found a t'iny spray of white heathr in full bloom, which, of course, we all treasure- On fine days we sometimes go on to the moof* here for the d?iy, and take our books. Oscar and I are anticipating going next Wednesday he has a half-holiday on Wednesday. You see, we have to content ourselves with half days during term. Oscar is very fond of natural history, is now taking in Warne's Natural History. He has one volume bound all the numbers of tlle second are not out. Have you read Westwa Ho ? I have just begun it, and like it immensely so far. We read very few novels, as father di" approves of novel reading. With love to Ann Mary, Laughaway, and Runible-gt-umble.-Yo"f loving old member.
