"TO PARENTS AND GUARDIANS." I The Bishop of Bristol has done a service to the nation in saying some plain things in a preface to a pamphlet by Canon Glazebrook entitled "Religious Education in the Home." The Bishop has seen that the place of definite religious teaching in any coming system of secondary education is a question of the highest moment. It is not a sectarian question, as some would have us suppose, but a national question. It is not the interests of the Church nor yet the interests of Nonconformity which have to be considered, it is the welfare of the whole community. There is always the danger that, in a material age, the value of faith and character may be overlooked but that value is a very real one, more especially to a people charged with the high destinies of an Empire such as ours. In the education of the children of the people the religious element has always been in the public mind. When the Church did nearly all that education the religious element was steadily kept to the front. When the Board School system carce in Churchmen were mainly responsible for securing under many Boards some instruction in religion. There is, however, a grave danger that middle-class and upper-class children may not enjoy an equal advantage. The Bishop of Bristol knows, as we all do, that even now things are not what they should be. When, he says, I was Suffragan Bishop of East London it was a commonplace to tell West End congregations before whom I was pleading the cause of the East London Church Fund that the children of many of our East End parish schools would easily beat their children in general religious knowledge, or in knowledge of the funda- mental points of Christianity and the distinctive features of the Church of England." Few persons with opportunities of observation will question the Bi&hop's statement. That being so, it is of the utmost importance that such religious teach- ing as is at present given iu secondary schools should at least not te lessened. What we need is an increase and not a decrease of such definite teaohing. But, as the Bishop of Bristol regretfully says :—"I have had to learn from experience something of the set purpose and the determined nature of political opposition to definite religious teaching have had to feel sorrowfully the force given and likely to be given by a popular assembly, and by a Government however benevolent individually, to the argument that the only hope of peace in public education lies in the exclusion of definite religious teaching-solitudinem faciunt pacem appellant. There can be no doubt that religiously-minded persons have a very grave fight before them, if they are to secure a worthy position for religious work in the coming machinery of secondary education." For that "grave fight" it behoves parents and guardians, and all who care for the high character of the nation, to prepare themselves.
Improvements on the Railway. The London and North-Western Railway Company are just on the point of completing extensive works near their Holywell' station, in connection with the great widening scheme from Chester to Conway, which will eventually involve the construction of a fresh set of rails for the whole of that distance. This scheme has become an absolute necessity, owing to tiie enormous pressure of the combined Irish and coat-line traffic of the Company, the latter caused by the great development of such places as Rhyl, Ltlll- dudno, Colwyn Bay. Preatatyn, &c. Already numerous loop lines—which will eventually form part of the general extension scheme—have been constructed between Chester and Rhyl, at points where the Company already owned sufficient land for the purpose, and these loops have proved of great service during the past summer season in temporarily clearing the main line for through trains. The principal work undertaken at Holywell is the provision of a massive bridge across the dangerous level crossing, which leads from Station Road across the lice to the wharf on the banks of the Dee. Datgerous already, the construction of a fresh set of rails would have mde it doubly so, hence the bridge, which has cost some £18,000. and has been nearly two years in course of construction. Henceforth traffic to the wharf will not go along Station Road. but along the new road to the bridge at rear of the Royal Hotel. The Company have also construction new bridges at the Morfa crossing and at Eyton's siding at Alostyn. Rhyl station has been enlarged at a cost of some £ 100,000, and is now the largest from Chester to Holyhead, and new stations have been erected at Queen's Ferry, Sandy croft, and Prestatyn. The latter replaces an antiquated station, which was certainly the most dangerous on the line. M
Intermediate Schools. A meeting of the Local Governors of the Rhy Intermediate School was held on Tuesday, llth inst. Mr R Llewellyn Jones presided, and there were also present Mrs Jones (Newmarket), Mrs Everatt, Mrs Bromley, Mrs Campbell, Messrs C W Jones, J H Ellis, R Jolley, S Perks, S W Manley, W A Lewis (Headmaster), and J Roberts Jones (Clerk), and Mr Sha.ller (the architect for the new schools) A report was received as to the progress of the new buildings, and it was decided to carry out certain alterations immediately, and to urge the contractors to push on more rapidly with the work. The report of the Central Board examination was received, and, after con- sidering the same, the following were awarded internal scholarships or bursaries*—Arnold Egerton Jones, Sarah Jane Roberts, Robert Alun Blythin, Mary Jane Jones (Newmarket), W B Manley (John-street), Maggie Russell Jones, Mary Russell Jones (Seabank-road), Reginald W Everatt (CreHcent-road), Martha Mary Lewis (Dyserth- road), 1) J Edwards, Hugh 0 Edwards (Queen- street), John Morgan Hughes (River street), Hannah C Davies, Geo Gordon Bell, M P Pearson (Wellington-road), Isabella Kirby (Church-street), Kate L Asher (Albert-street), Evan G Buckley (West Parade), Dota Roberts (Penywaen), Thomas W Roberts (Bodrhyddan), Chas H Thomas, Thos W Parry, Richard Davies (Dyserth), J M Carroll (Golden Grove), Mary E Roberts (St Asaph), Chas Williams, Alice B Davies (Rhuddian). It was decided to issue a syllabus for the external exami- nation to be held in July next, and at the request of the headmaster, the following were appointed as a committee to consider the question of pupil teachers :—Mrs Everatt, Messrs R Llewellyn Jones, S W Manley, L J Roberts, and C W Jones. From the Front. In a letter to his parents at RHyl, Pte J Lloyd ot the 1st Devon Regiment, writing from Kroonstad on August ltith, says that the troops have had a hard tune of it: they had had enough. He could not understand how men could volunteer to go to the war, for he was sure that they would soon want to go back. No butter was to be obtained, but the troops were supplied with jam, and every- thing that could be bought was very dear. The men experienced much hardship in travelling from place to place in railway trucks, the weather being hot in the day and terribly cold at night. A few days before he wrote the letter he was called out of bed to take part in a skirmish with the Boers who had wrecked a train and set fire to the contents of the trucks. It was a shame to see the flonr and other goods burning. The writer asked to be remembered to many friends. Mr Williams, Windsor Cottage, has also received a letter fram his son, who is with the Royal Field Artillery at Pretoria. Writing on August 17th the writer says that he expects to return home shortly, as the yeomanry are under orders, and jt is expected that the Reserves will follow. There was no fighting around Pretoria, and the men were anxious to get back. There was a large number of married men in the field. He did not think much of South Africa it was not such a grand place as he had thought. During the war he had travelled about 2000 miles, but it was all over now, and the next move was expected to be for Cape Town, en route for England.

Macmillan's New Publications. Mr. A. Freeman-Mitford, C.B., prints under the title of "The Attache at Peking," a series of letters written home by him in the years 1865 and 1866, just published by Macmillan & Co. The book, how. ever, contains matter of more recent interest in Mr Mitford's prefactory review of the present situation. His remarks upon the relative civilisation of China and Japan—tempering the eulogy of the latter-are worth attention; and his summary of missionary history in China still more so. Probably few realise how considerable an effort was made in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, Mr Mitford's main conclusion is that Peking as a capital should cease to exist, and the seat of Government should be transferred to Nan- king. The idea of European annexation has no terror for him, and Peking Russian in his view would be more useful to us than Peking Chinese. The true source of hatred to the foreigners and to modern civilisation he finds in the interests of the ofllcial class who realise that if the change took place in China, which has come to pass in Japan, the day of their authority would be over. The letters them- selves also, apait from their lively style and mass of picturesque and detailed description of the country and its inhabitants, have an unusual interest just now. Mr Mitford has boldly printed his thirty-five years' old prophecies, and on the whole they are in the right line, though frequently they do not follow as when he predicts a Iresh rising against the European influence but thinks that it will come without violence. MESSRS. MACMILLAN* will publish in September a book of about 350 pp on "The Settlement after the War in South Africa." It is the work of Dr M. J. Farrelly, Advocate of the Supreme Court of Cape Colony, who went to South Africa in 1896 in order to make a complete study of the numerous problems which had been suggested to his mind by a large acquaintance among South African law stu- dents. In the four years that have elapsed Dr. Farrelly not only had the opportunity of discuss- ing all the burning questions, the inter-racial dis- pute, the mining question, land tenure, the native problem, the missionary methods and prospects- but became a trusted adviser of the Transvaal Government and did his best before the war to urge concessions upon them. He now writes as preliminary to his main purpose, a review of British and Dutch history and relations in South Africa down to the outbreak of war; and then bases upon this a view of the principles which should govern the settlement, and the policy re- quired for South Africa considered locally and considered as part ot the Imperial scheme. By way of appendices are added reprints of the most important speeches and documents contributed to the consideration of the whole question since the trouble became acute. MB. JOHN MOBLEY'S biographical study of "Oliver Cromwell" will be published in October by Messrs. Macmillan. The work is incidentally a history—and a brilliant history—of Cromwell's time; but it is primarily a biography-that is, an interpretation of a temperament and career. The historical sense (whose growth, as Mr Morley observes, has affected the human mind not less than all the modern discoveries in physical science) enables the biographer to enter with full sympathy into motives and ideals alien from his own-though the attitude maintained is always rather that of a critic and never that of an enthusiast. In every sense of the word, justice is doneto the character and the actions ofCromwell, which are taken not as explaining their age, but explained by it. The political, the social and the religious atmospheres are all analysed with a very unusual clearness, and whoever reads Mr Morley will realise to some extent for instance the relation of Calvinism to the life of men of action A notable feature of the book in the illustrated edition is the series of portraits, reproduced from carefully authenticated originals or prints, which makes the volume really a compendious portrait gallery of the England that Cromwell knew. The ordinary edition contains as frontispiece the well-known portrait from Sidney Sussex CollQge, Cambridge. The "Life of Professor Huxley" by his son Mr, Leonard Huxley, will be published shortly by Messrs Macmillan. It will be looked forward to with keen interest for, as the biographer justly observes. Huxley was much more than a simple contributor however illustrious to natural science much more even than a lucid and profound thinker. His style reflected a tempera-nent of great force and originality and the son's book is not a summary of the father's contributions to science nor of his philosophic views, but rather a study of the man himselt, of his character and tem- perament, and the circumstances under which his various works were begun and completed. So far as possible the story is told by original letters and by extracts from Huxley's correspondence, which was however by no means voluminous. The arrangement is simply chronological seven chap- ters covers the first eight and twenty years from that to the end a chapter is allotted, roughly speaking, to every year. The illustrations com- piis" eight portraits of varying dates. Contributions to Photographic Optics "is the title given by Dr Silvanus Thompson to a series of papers by Professor Otto Lumber, of Berlin, which Dr. Thompson has freely paraphrased and elaborated. They give in concise form in- formation not be foundelsewhere upon the various kinds of spherical and chromatic aberration to be taken into account in the construction of photographic lenses, and this practical information has immediate value in scientific optics. But giving as they do not only the mathematical theory which explains these several aberrations, also an account of the way in which they are overcome in the construction of the modern photographic objective, which explains the use of Jena glass in the modern lens, the paper should be of interest to all scientific photographers. The book is published by Messrs. Macmillan and Co. Messrs Macmillan and Co. will shortly publish in their series of ."English Theological Classics" an edition of the works of Bishop Butler in two vol- umes, containing respectively the Sermons "and the Analogy of Religion." The editor, Dr Bernard, of Trinity College, Dublin, who was highly distinguished as a teacher of philosophy before he became a theologian, has followed the lessonsof his experience in providing a marginal analysis of Butler's argument, which should help students to keep in view the main trend of the discourse. Nctes are supplied, mainly to eluci. date Butler's meaning and to direct attention to the controversies with which he was concerned. A few points are indicated at which the Bishop's arguments appear no longer convincing, but the object of the editor has been throughout to inter- pret, not to criticise. The authoress of "Elizabeth aud her German Garden" is by general consent one of the few who can write with an unfailing touch about children, and it is not surprising that she should write for them. An April Baby's Book of Tunes ought surely to please any little girl from three to thirteen; it will certainly delight the grown up audience. The plan of the little book is this. It tells how the mother of three little girls, whose names were April, May, and June, lived with them among the forests in Germany, and one snowy Easter was hard set to keep the little girls out of mischief. And so she set herself to put tunes to the old En- glish nursery rhymes aud teach her children the words and the tunes. The tunes are given, and so are the children's comments on the words-for in- stance on the behaviour of the young man in Where are you going to my pretty maid ?—and the upshot of the different games that arose out of them, as when April played at being Mary, Mary, quite contrary, and poured chocolate over the heads of May and June who were the pretty maids all in a row, because they needed watering. The pictures have been reproduced in colours from drawings by Miss Kate Grceuaway.

PRESTATYN. FOR some time past the Council have been endeavouring to get the London and North Western Railway Company to give residents at Prestatyn a better service of trains. Letters to the Company do not appear to have had much weight, and when in London recently the Chair- man of the Council (Mr John Jones) and the Town Clerk (Mr John Hughes) interviewed Mr rurnbull at Euston Station with the resalt that the Company have decided to stop the 6-15 train from Chester at Prestatyn during the winter months. This is a concession which will be appreciated by many. ON Sunday evening, at the Town Hal), Mr Mozart Wilson and his talented family gave a very successful sacred concert. ON the 24th inst. a sale of valuable property will take place at the Royal Victoria Hotel. <
CYCLING NEWS & GOSSIP. If In this country we have not seen a great deal of motor pacing upon the race track, but from all accounts this particular kind of pacing is extremely dangerous. Already in America there have been some bad accidents, the latest of which was of a most severe nature, one of the riders being very much injured about the head, whilst the other, a man named Starbuck, having a considerable repu- tation as a racing man, was so injured that one of his legs had to be amputated. One of our best professionals at present racing in France, recently had a fall, which might have had bad results, entirely owing to his pacing tandem missinga "spark." Altogether, what with the increased speed and the less reliable nature of the pacing instruments, long distance paced racing is a sport which needs to-day a quicker eye and a cooler head than ever it did. An enterprisingYorkshireman has started a motor service between Leeds and London, and will, it is said, run it during the remainder of the holiday season. The distance from Leeds to London is roughly two hundred miles. The journey occupies two days each way, and the fare is two guineas only for the double journey. The opportunity for thoroughly testing travelling long distances by motor is thus placed in the way of those who care to avail themselves of it. Altogether the trips should prove successful, because there are very few people indeed travelling for amusement, (to whom time is not an object) who would not rather travel by road from Leeds to London than by rail. There could be no question as to which is the more pleasant of the two methods. "It is remarkable "-saysl,icycliiig NelCS-" how the consensus of opinion has worked round with regard to Dunlop tyres. Two or three years ago, owing principally to trade and business matters, a certain amount of prejudice ,'permeated coteries of the wheel world but the sheer superiority of the tyre has worn all that down, and to-day the Dunlop stands in higher public favour than ever. It thoroughly deserves the recognition, for not- withstanding the extraordinary success it has achieved, the company is never satisfied to rest upon its oars and it is but the simple truth to say that the longer the tyre lives the higher grows its reputation. The Dunlop folk have been accused of trying to create a monopoly. They have not only tried—they have succeeded but it is the monopoly of merit." A very clever exhibition of motor steering under very dangerous circumstances was recently seen when one of the most prominent automobilists of the country was driving a car weighing nearly Ii tons with a full complement of passengers, down a dangerous hill into Folkestone. The brake power fired and proved to be totally inadequate and under the circumstances of ,the fast travelling car, the tyre brakes were also quite useless. The runaway car looked like ending in a terrible and disastrous smash, but with great quickness and decision the driver saw a narrow opening into the railway station yard at the foot of the hill. A sharp curve was made, and the car entered at a great speed. The approach to the station was on the up grade, but not sufficient to stop the vehicle. A right about turn had to be made, and the car, still running away and out of control, passed out again through the gate. The driver then turned up the same hill down which he had just run, and in about a hundred yards the whole thing was brought to a standstill. The occupants, amongst whom was a lady and some children, behaved splendidly. The cool and clever manner in which the driver acted under the very trying circumstances obviated what might doubtless have been a very serious accident indeed. The free wheel bicycle is a complete success, Did has established itself triumphantly as the one md only improvement to acquire popular-we might almost say universal-adoption since the pneumatic tyre revolutionized the art of cycling. It has been adopted by all classes except the most impecunious; and is used not only upon single bicycles but upon tandems, the riders of which do not seem to experience the anticipated difficulty of acitly agreeing when to cease pedalling. Here- ifter, the trade will be very cautious in building quantities of fixed pedal bicycles; the demand .vill undoubtedly continue to increase for the free wheel. The only class of people who seem dissatis- iied with the modern contrivance are those who have experienced the annoyance associated with free wheel clutches so crudely made as to evolve friction, or so imperfectly designed as to get out of adjustment or break down altogether. But .vith a ball bearing clutch, well designed and strongly made, the free wheel bicycle opens up new delights to the veteran rider. A tyre manufacturer of Newcastle, who traded under the name of W. S. Newman, has evidently a great liking for the inside of Holloway Prison. Some few months ago Mr. Justice Bucknill com- mitted him to this prison for fourteen days for continuing to deal in tyres which were infringe- ments of the Duniop Pneumatic Tyre Company's patents, and he had only been released a few weeks, when the Dunlop Company discovered that he was again continuing this illegitimate trading. For the second time he was brought be- fore his lordship who again committed the defendant to Holloway Prison, this time for an in- definite period. Infringements of the Dunloj: Company's patents have become so numerous that it is essential for the Company to take thes( drastic measures in their shareholders' interest; Dr. Mayburv, of Southsea, entered an action against the makers of his machine for the cost of a new chain, his old one having broken whilst lie was cycling some eighteen miles from his resi- dence, and it is reported that he gained the da with living colours. If there were more men of Dr. Maybury's stamp about, the makers of third grade cycles would be more careful to fit higher grade component parts. One thousand pounds is the sum total of the prizl's being offered for competition at the Great Aust.i-I meeting which has been fixed for Decern '"•fr. Th priiii-ipal event is the Austral race. where prizes valued £ 100 first, £ 75 second, and £ 2-; rhird will be offered, and as can be readily under- stood, will re«ult in keen competition amongst the cOll1l'dli,S. Such crowds of spectators as this jiH-oting attracts have never been equalled in this country.
