RHL REVISION COURT. LIBERAL LOOCER CLAIMS: PECULIAR INCIDENT. On Saturday in the Board Room at the Town Hall, the Hon. R. Cecil Grosvenor held a court for revising the lists of voters of the Parishes of Rhyl, Dyserth, Meliden and Prestatyn. Mr X W Hughes (Flint) and Mr F J Gamlin (Rhyli appeared for the Unionists, and the Liberals were represented by Mr J Morgan (Mold) and Mr P Mostyn Williams (Rhyl). Mistakes for which they Paid. The Unionists had objected to the occupier's vote of Mr Evan Roberts, 7 Wellington-terrace, upon the ground that he had not occupied the house for twelve months. Mr Rowlands said he had the name of Mr Roberts on his rate book as occupying for the qualifying period. Mr Roberts was called and said he had occupied the house for twelve months from March last, and he produced his rent book to bear out what he said. The Revising Barrister allowed the vote, and ordered Mr Roberts to be paid 2s 6d fcr his expenses. Mrs Ann Proffitt, Ffynnongroew-road, was also objected to by the Unionists on the same ground. Mr D Proffitt appeared, and said that his mother had lived in the house for years. Mr Gamlin said he had received information that she had not occupied during the qualifying period. The Revising Barrister said he was bound to allow the vote. A question arose as to whether Mr D Proffitt should receive something for his expenses, and in reply to the Revising Barrister, he said he was not in regular employ, but went about picking up odd jobs. The Revising Barrister You will have half-a- crown to spend in the meantime (laughter). If this goes on, Mr Gamlin, you will want plenty of silver (laughter). Did Not "Come up to the Scratch." Mr William Jones, blacksmith, Aquarium-street, claimed an occupier's vote in respect of the black- smith shop in the Britannia Yard, High-street. Mr Gamlin said he would require strict proof of the tenancy, as he understood that Mr Wm Jones was in partnership with Mr Thomas Jones, his brother-in-law, during the qualifying period. The applicant said he used to be joint tenant up to July, 1899, but his partner left, and went to work at the Foryd. M r Gamlin said he would insist upon the agree- ment between the landlord and tenant being pro- duced, as he knew that it was in existence. It was then decided that Mr Jones should fetch the landlord, but on Mr Wilfred Hall being brought to the court he admitted that he had only occupied the house since September 29th. He let the blacksmith's shop to Mr W Jones personally, and not to the partners. Mrtamlin contended that that made nodiflerence with his objection. He still insisted upon seeing the agreement. In reply to questions, Mr Jones said it was about June of 1899 that his partner left him, but he still carried on business in the same name. The Revising Barrister said he would be satisfied if the former landlord was pro- duced but after waiting several hours for the other landlord, or the agreement, the Revising Barrister disallowed the vote, Mr Gamlin observing that the other side had not come up to the "scratch." Important to People who let Furnished Houses. The Liberals objected to the occupier vote of Mr Thomas Williams, of Prestatyn, and it was contended that as he had rented a furnished house during the qualifying period he had broken his tenancy of his other house. The Revising Barrister observed that anyone could take a furnished house and occupy it without breaking his occupancy of another house, so long as he was tenant and paid the rent. Mr Gamlin said he thought that the question of furnished houses was an important one to Rhyl and Prestatyn, and he hoped that; the Revising Barrister would give an expression of opinion on the subject. The Revising Barrister replied that it bad been specially enacted that a person could let his house furnished for any period not exceeding four months in any year without becoming disfranchised, and a person was also entitled to occupy a furnished house for such a period without rendering himself liable to lose his vote in consequence of leaving his own house. Mr Gamlin said it raised a serious question in Rhyl, where a number of people let their houses furnished, and did not know that they could do so for so long a period. Mr T \V Hughes said there was no doubt about the matter. Mr Rowlands stated that in the instructions sent by the Clerk of the Peace, he was told that he had to allow for four months' letting of furnished houses. Mr Mostyn Williams, on discovering that the person objected to was supposed to be one of the Liberal supporters, withdrew the objection. A Nice Point. Mr Gamlin claimed an occupier's vote for Mr Keyzar in respect of St George's Hall, Sussex St, stating that he paid a heavy rent for it. Mr Rowlands, on being asked, said it was not Mr Keyzar who paid the rates. Mr Miller paid for the building. The Revising Barrister 1 do not care who pays the rates. Twenty people may occupy the building and each be entitled to a vote, yet not one of them pays the rates. The vote will:be allowed. A Liberal Lodger's Claim: Upset on his own Book. The Liberals claimed a lodger's vote for Mr Thos John Williams, 21 High street. He produced his receipt book showing that he paid his father for his lodgings quarterly. Mr Gamlin looked at the book, and after turning over the pages asked whether the claimant con-1 tended that the entries were made at different times. Mr T J Williams replied that they were made at the same time. Mr Gamlin next inquired as to who had made the entries, and the claimant admitted that they were made by Mr Mostyn Williams, whereaipon Mr Gamlin observed that he thought as mucsh, as he recognised the handwriting. The Revising Barrister If that is so, when did you make up the account, Mr Williams Mr Mostyn Williams Some time ago. Before I made the claim. Mr Gamlin contended that such a receipt book did not contorm to the rules laid down by the Revising Barrister as to sons residing with their parents being required to keep a proper account book. All the entries were made at one and the same time. Mr Mostyn Williams But the receipts are bona-fide. The Revising Barrister said the receipts pro- duced certainly did not come within the definition of the receipts he intended to be produced in the case of a young man who entered into an arrange- ment with his parents to have the exclusive use of a bedroom and sitting-room such as was stated in this case. He could not accept as evidence the book made up by another party after the year had elapsed. In reply to the Revising Barrister, Mr T J Wil- liams said he always lived at home with his father, and paid 14s per week for board and lodgings. He paid 6s for his rooms and 8s for board. He had the exclusive use of a bedroom and sitting room, and had for three years occupied the rooms. In reply to Mr Gamlin, the applicant said there were three sitting rooms in the house and he had the sole use of one, excepting that he sometimes invited people to visit him. His father and mother occupied another sitting room, and the third was usually let during the season. The Revising Barrister said he would certainly not accept the book as evidence. Mr Gamlin You do not suppose we arc going to believe that on April 1st, 1899, you paid your father the lump sum of £ 18 4s Mr T J Williams I pay him quarterly. Hut you did not pay -him £18. Is on April 1st, 1899, in one sum,-No. Mr Gamlin Yet the receipt you produce says that you did. Addressing the Revising Barrister, Mr Gamlin said he had purposely kept away several claimants because they could not produce he receipts required for the amount paid to their parents. He hoped that the Revising Banister would not depart from the rule he had laid down. The Revising Barrister said he did not want to make the rule a castiron one if there was good evi- dence that the claim was bona-fide. This claimant did not produce receipts that came within his rul- ing as to evidence of transactions. Mr Gamlin said it was ridiculous to think that the claimant s father kept him for Ss perWk. The Revising Barrister said he had to believe the statement made, unless the other side covuld get the claimant to say otherwise than he had a ready asserted. The claimant stated that fo-r three years he had paid 14s per week, and had the exclusive use of a bedroom and sitting-room. Mr Gamlin asked if the Revising Barrister was prepared to believe that in a house such as that in which the claimant lived he had the exclusive use of a bedroom and a sitting-room, aud that his father and the rest of the family had to crowd in a single room. The Revising Barrister said he was inclined to the vote, but he marked his sense of the pro- duction of such a book by disallowing the vote. He believed the statement of the claimant as to the occupying of the rooms, but he insiated unou having proper receipts produced for payments, He disallowed the vote. More Liberal Lodgers Rejected. Mr John Love Jones, 48, Vale-road, claimed a lodger vote, and said he paid rent weekly to his father. He had no receipts. Mr Gamlin objected, and the Revising Barrister said he would insist upon evidence of the family arrangements. He disallowed the vote. Mr John Richard Hughes claimed a lodger vote in respect of rooms occupied by him at 25, River- street, the residence of his mother. The claimant had no receipts, and as Mr Gamlin objected, the vote was disallowed. Mr William Egerton Williams, 13, River-street, claimed a lodger vote, and said he paid 30s per week for the exclusive use of a bedroom and sitting-room. In reply to Mr Gamlin, he said he did change his rooms occasionally to oblige the landlady, moving during the season from a large to a small bedroom. He also had meals in the kitchen at times, and his landlady, with his consent, partook of meals in his room when visitors were plentiful. The Revising Barrister said he could not allow the vote, as the claimant moved about the house. Mr Mostyn Williams He pays the rent all the same. The Revising Barrister But he has not the exclusive use of certain rooms. No one can claim for the joint use of a sitting room unless he is a fellow lodger. The Liberals claimed a vote in respect of Mr John Parry who lives with his employer at Liver- pool House, Crescent road. Mr Gamlin objected, and in reply to questions the claimant stated that he received 35s per week and paid 15s per week for board and lodgings. He had the exclusive use of a bedroom, although the apprentices did not have that. He could, if he choose live out, and did not think he would lose his situation in consequence. The vote was allowed, as was also that of Mr J T Jones, grocer's manager at the same address, but the claim of Mr Thos W Proffit was disallowed, as it was contended by Mr Gamlin that there was no proof that the young man was over 21 years of age. New Claims. Mr Isaac Jones, 188 Vale-road, was granted an occupier's vote, having been objected to by the Unionists, who withdrew the objection on seeing the rent book. The vote of Mr James Sharp, Vaughan-street, was also allowed on like grounds. Neither of these parties claimed expenses, although asked by Mr P Mostyn Williams if they wished to be paid. The Old and New Vicar's Votes. On the list of parochial electors being gone through, Mr Mostyn Williams said that the name ot the old Vicar of Rhyl should be struck off, as he had left. The Revising Barrister said he did not care about that. If the name was to be removed it should have been objected to. Mr Mostyn Williams added that there was a claim for the new Vicar. The Revising Barrister replied that that did not matter; the old one was not objected to, and so would stand. Don't Let it Happen again. Mr Gamlin called attention to the fact that for the third year in succession Mr H G Little, of Chester, had been objected to in respect of pro- perty at Rhyl, and he naturally felt very much annoyed at it. The Revising Barrister Don't let it occur again. You should make them pay for it, Mr Gamlin. Mr Gamlin I did think of doing so, but Mr Mostyn Williams was so courteous over it that I did not like to do so. Mr Middlehurst's New Vote. Mr J E Middlehurst appeared in Court and said he understood that he was on the list in respect of the Foryd Harbour Hotel property, but had been objected to. Mr Gamlin appeared to support Mr Middlehurst, and stated that it was a new claim. Mr Middlehurst replied that he ought to have had a vote years ago for the property. He was the owner of freehold property at the Foryd, but the deeds were with the mortgagee. Asked by the Revising Barrister if the property produced 12 per annum clear of the interest on the mortgage, Mr Middlehurst replied that it would produce more than 9200 if it was all let. Mr Mostyn Williams asked if it was not true that the mortgagee was in possession, and had fore- closed. Mr Middlehurst replied that the mortgagee was not in possession, nor had he foreclosed. The mortgagee acted as his solicitor, and sold by arrangement, he (Mr Middlehurst) signing an undertaking as to costs. The vote was allowed, and on Mr Middlehurst asking for his expenses, the Revising Barrister said he did not allow expenses on claims. If the vote was objected to, it was a different thing. Mr Middlehurst I thought it was an objection. If it had been so, they would have had to pay costs. Prestatyn Cases. Mr Peter Ellis and Mr Robert Griffiths (Post Office Buildings) sustained claims as owners. Mr Geo Jones, Bryn Aber, was objected to by Mr Hughes, and the vote was disallowed as the claimant could not show that he derived any free- holder's rights from a field he had purchased. Mr F Jewell supported successfully a claim to an ownership vote by his brother, who lives at Liverpool and owns a house at Prestatyn. Mr Hart Davies, Chester, was supported in his claim to an ownership vote at Prestatyn by the Liberal Party and was successful, the land for which he claimed producing 5s per annum more than the statutory requirements. Both sides asrreed to several new ownership claims, and during the consideration of them, in the course of which the applicants only gave verbal evidence as to mortgages, &c., the Barrister said that in the future he should insist on the produc- tion of the deeds, or a statement from the person holding the deeds, as to the amount of mortgage and the interest payable upon it. Otherwise it was a temptation to people who came there with- out deeds to distort the facts. The Dyserth and Meliden lists were passed without any fighting.
CHANGEABLE WEATHER. The fickle nature of the climate of this country often gives rise to a variety of ailments and com- plaints, which assuming at first the form of only a slight indisposition, if neglected and unheeded may become the germ of serious diseases, which will undermine the constitution, and finally result in a long and lingering illness, and perhaps termi- nate fatally. The variable temperature and the changeable weather of the last month or so. makes it incumbent on all of us to exercise wise and prudent precautions to counteract the evil effects which the weather may have bad upon our health and con: fort. Already we frequently hear such complaints as No appetite," These frequent headaches," This languid feeling," and dozens of other expressions which all point to the urgent need of a good Tonic. Now there are several tonic mixtures offered to the pbblic, but none which have been so uniformly successful as Gwilym Evans' Quinine Bitters, The Vegetable Tonic This preparation is acknowledged to be The Best Remedy of the Age for Nervousness, Weakness, Cheat affections, Palpitation of the Heart, Indi. gestion, Liver complaint, and Influenza. The numerous cases of marvellous cures effected, and the restoration to perfect health, of those who had long suffered and bad vainly tried other remedies, can be accounted for by simply stating the effect which Gwilym Evans Qninine Bitters has upon the System. 1st. It strikes at the source of the disease, and by removing the cause of disease, the evil effects soon vanish. 2nd. It strengthens that part of the system which is weakest, and therefore, most liable to the attacks of colds and all diseases. 3rd. It purifies the blood, and thus gives new ife and force to all parts of the body, for disease cannot exist where there is a free circulation of pure blood. 4th. It gives healthy action to the digestive organs, and to the liver, thus aiding to keep away Indigestion, and the host of different forms of disease which result from it. 5th. By removing impurities, strengthening the weak parts of the system, and purifying the blood, the human frame is well fortified to with. stand the attacks of disease. It is repelled, and its place taken by health and strength, through the effective action of Gwilym Evans' Quinine Bitters, The Vegetable Tonic.

1ST. ASAPH BOARD OF GUARDIANS. INCREASE IN THE PRICE OF PROVISIONS. REDUCTION IN THE HALF-YEARLY CALLS. The fortnightly meeting of this Board was held on Friday at the Workhouse, St Asaph. Mr R Llew Jones (Rhyl) presided, and the fol- lowing guardians were present:—Messrs John Kerfoot, J Williams, Abergele; Thos Parry, Bettws; Hugh Jones, Bylchau; Thos Morgan, Cwm; Hugh Williams, Pierce Hughes, Den- bigh; R J Williams, Dyserth; Edwin Morgan, Dymeirchion; John Lloyd, Henllan; William Jones, Llannefydd; Joseph Jones, Llanddulas; Robert Davies, Prestatyn; Robert Morris, Mrs Rawlins, Rhuddlan; Messrs P Mostyn Williams, J H Ellis, S Perks, Rev E T Davies, Mrs Mary Jones, Mrs Percy, Rhyl; Miss Bennett, St Asaph; and the Clerk (Mr Charles Grims- ley). The Half-Yearly Contracts: Increased Prices. The following tenders for the supply of pro- visions, etc., to the Workhouse for the next half-year were accepted :—Bread, cheese, split peas, rice, soda, candles, currants, Messrs Jones and Son, Rhyl and St Asaph; flour, oatmeal, tea, sugar, mustard, paraffin oil, soap, popper, tobacco, etc., Messrs E P Jones, Son and Co., Rhyl and St Asaph; coal, Mr Robert Gallagher, St Asaph; coffee, Messrs Harrison Jonws and Co. Denbigh;jsugar, Messrs Shaw, butcher's meat, Mr Thomas Davies, Denbigh drapery, Mr J T Williams, and Messrs Roberts and Co., St Asaph; hosiery, Mr T J Williams, Mr W G Jones, St Asaph; and Messrs Roberts and Co.; boots, etc., Mr Edward Barlow, St Asaph, <fc Messrs T J Williams & Son, St Asaph. Several members commented upon the marked increase in prices quoted for some of the articles compared to the corresponding period of last year. Moist sugar was Is 6d per cwt more currants were 2td per Ib dearer; ordinary soap showed an advance of 2s 6d per cwt; and coal was dearer by 4s lid per ton. The Estimates: A Decrease. The Clerk presented the estimates for and the list of calls due for the next financial half- year as follows -Abergele (Urban), £200; Abergele (Rural), £368; Bettws-yn-Rhos, £72; Bodelwyddan, £116; Bodfari, JE62 Bylchau, £õ6; Cefn, £õ6; Cwm, £60; Denbigh, JE368 Tremeirchion. JE92 Dyserth, JE112 Henllan (Urban), £184; Llanddulas, £G8; Llannefydd, £88; Llanfairtalhaiarn. £100; Llansannan, £108; Meliden, £60; Prestatyn, £244; Rhuddlan, £252; Rhyl, £1404 St Asaph, £228; St George, £õ6; Trefnant, £80 Waen, £40-total, £4464. Mr P Mostyn Williams stated that they had gone over the statement, and they were gratified to find that the general charges were less than last year. The Clerk said the calls were less by £40, compared with the corresponding half-year, and £60 less compared to what they were two or three years ago. Mr Robert Davies Does that arise from the county rate being reduced ? The Clerk Apparently on account of the balances, which are more satisfactory than they were two years ago. Mr P Mostyn Williams The county rate is 3d. The estimates were adopted. Looking Well After the Inmates. The Master reported that the children had been taken to Rhyl three times during the season for sea bathing. On each occasion Mr E Vaughan had allowed them the free use of his bathing machines. On the last occasion they were, as formerly, generously entertained to tea at Lloyd's Restaurant in Bodfor-street. He could not say who the gentleman was who treated them, but he believed it was the chair- man (laughter). The Chairman No, it is not I this time. It was a friend of mine, who wishes to be nameless. The Master, continuing his report, said the children were given donkey rides by Mrs Hollinsworth, which they thoroughly enjoyed. During the week, Mr Bathgate, Rhyl, called at the House, and left 10s for the use of the inmates (applause). Cakes had also been sent from the bazaar held in connection with the Alexandra Hospital. The Chairman said it was very evident from the reports which the Master furnished meeting after meeting that the kindly feelings shown by the general public for the poor, the sick, and infirm were, instead of deteriorating, becoming more pronounced every year (hear, hear). They, in the St Asaph Union at any rate, had received their full share of the kindly considera- tion at the hands of the public. The milk of human kindness seemed to flow in their direction steadily and without a break, and, on behalf of the Board, he desired to propose a warm and hearty vote of thanks to all those thoughtful and kind persons who had so generously, in one way and another, contri- buted towards the happiness of the Workhouse inmates. It was also exceedingly thoughtful and kind for those in charge of the refreshment stall at the Royal Alexandra Hospital Bazaar to send cakes. The vote was carried with acclamation. A Bank Draft for a Pauper. The Chairman read a letter, received through the Master.from a Mrs J H Ford, 1017 Westfort St, Detroit (America), who said she was glad to hear that her old friend, Miriam Williams, who at one time resided in Denbigh, was receiving every kindness, care and attention. She was a most faithful friend, as well as servant, and more than deserved any little kindness shown to her. The writer asked to be informed of the inmate's condition, physical and mental, and begged that she should have all she wished of a tine quality, for which the writer would pay. Enclosed was a draft of £5 16a 9d for main- tenance. Mr Pierce Hughes said he happened to know Miriam Williams, and a good deal about her affairs. He did not, however, know exactly how the matter stood between her and the late Mr Gold Edwards, who acted for her in looking after the interest of some money belonging to her, and which was received through him. Was the draft of £5 payable to the Union ? The Chairman No, to Miriam Williams. The Clerk said he had instructions from the Board some time ago to look into the case of Miriam Williams, and he found she had money in the Denbigh Building Society, the interest from which was received by Mr Gold Edwards, the solicitor. That gentleman kindly gave him all particulars, and on that, and in accordance with their instructions, he applied for a magis- trates' order upon the Society to repay the Board for the cost of her maintenance. The order was granted, and some of the money was paid to the collector, Mr Jones, of Denbigh. The sec- retary of the Society had promised to pay the balance at an early date. The money from the Building Society would be given towards her maintenance. Mr Pierce Hughes So that the* money she has had sent to her will be apart from the Building Society money ? The Clerk Yes, we arc recovering the cost of her maintenance from the Building Society. The Chairman This is a draft which appears to be an annual remuneration in respect of some allowance, or else they would not be particular about the pence. The Clerk I believe she had some money invested. The Chairman: That must be so, because the writer of that letter says, If she wishes to have anything extra, let her have it, and I will pay-" Mr Pierce Hughes Is that draft the interest or money she has in America ? The Chairman We cannot say. We can only presume that it is. Mr Mostyn Williams said it did not matter very much whether it was derived from invest- ments or a gift of the writer. The intention, evidently, was to give the old woman every- thing she wanted, and for her to pay for it, and the people in America seemed to be wishful that she should have extra things ifshe required them. The question was rather whether theyj could spend the mouey in sumu other way. Mrs Rawlins said one of the greatest comforts an old woman could have was a comfortable bed, and she proposed that they purchase a good one for her, with a spring mattress. Also anything in the way of something ad- ditional with her meals, which, of course the Master could provide. The Chairman Don't you think the better plan would be to give her the money, and let her do what she likes with it? The Master She has a weak mind, sir, and was brought here from the asylum. Mr Pierce Hughes said the woman was not so weak-minded as all that. Her memory had gone to a certain extent, but for ordinary conversation the old lady was all right, and it would be better, in his opinion if they asked what she would like to do. In fact, she had told him that she would like to go out for a fortnight or three weeks to Denbigh, or some other place, for a change. Undoubtedly a change would be beneficial to her. Mr E Morgan But why should we make this house a sort of boarding house for her? The Chairman She is on the imbecile list The Clerk She has a weak mind, an d some of her relations thought her safer here. Mr Pierce Hughes There are a good many reasons for her coming here. Her relatives in Denbigh did not behave at all well towards her. Mr Perks proposed that the old lady be informed about the money that has been sent, and that she be asked whether they should in- vest some of it for her. Mr John Williams: Are we satisfied that this draft is for that purpose? Mr Mostyn Williams The letter says so. The Chairman Don't raise that question now Mr J H. Ellis suggested that they should leave it to the discretion of the master and mat- ron to see what the old woman would really prefer. The Clerk said, in the meantime, he would consult Mr Swayne, who was the late Mr Gold Edwards' partner, as to the exact position of the investment. Mr J H Ellis Has this money been coming through Mr Gold Edwards previous to this ? The Chairman Yes. The Clerk I believe Mr Gold Edwards ad- vanced her money. The question was deferred to the next Board. Contract for Stones. The tender of the Dyffryn Clwyd Co. for sup plying unbroken stone at 5s per ton was accepted. Mr Joseph Jones' Marriage. Mr Joseph Jones thanked the Board for their kind congratulations with him upon his mar- riage. He was pleased to think that he enjoyed the friendship of all the members (hear, hear). The Chairman said they were all very glad to hear that Mr Jones had decided to get married, and he hoped such well-known bachelors cts Mr John Kerfoot and Mr Gwilym Parry would follow his example (laughter). The Religious Services in the Workhouse: Promises for the Future. A letter was read from Mr Moses Roberts, St Asaph, as to the Sunday services at the Work- house, stating that he was calling together a general committee with a view of preventing a recurrence of the disappointment caused by the non-attendances of Nonconformist ministers at the houHe. The Board then rose.

LLANDUDNO REV. JOHN WooDs.-A local paper states that The Rev. John Woods has been experiencing a rough time of it during the past week. It is matter for pity that this man's methods should arouse the feelings that they do, but it is hardly any wonder that his attacks on the clergy should be deeply resented by all moderate people. At the same time everyone will deprecate any re- sort to personal violence, such as was the case on more than one occasion this week. On Sunday afternoon Mr. Wood was assaulted by a man in the crowd, who added injury to insult by throwing the contents of a whisky bottle into his face. In the evening a number of young men behaved somewhat disgracefully by smashing the box from which he delivers his philippics and throwing it into the sea. We imagine that Mr. John Wood must find some consolation in these attacks. On their account he is enabled to pose as a martyr for a good cause, and they certainly render more acute the feeling in his favour. That this is so is patent from the fact that a lady this week sent him a cheque of XIO. In acknowledging its receipt before a crowd this week he unctuously remarked, This is evidence of the triumph of light against darkness. In the probability of the recurrence of these disorders on the beach it would be well if the Urban Council accurately and lucidly defined their attitude towards Mr Woods. If, as we are advised, they have the power to prohibit his speaking on the foreshore would it not he advisable to consider the whole question of putting these powers into operation ? At any rate, it is to be hoped that the peace and tranquillity of the foreshore will be preserved at all costs."
ST. ASAPH. REVISION COUP.T.-The Hon R C Grosvenor held a Revision Court on Thursday, 13th instant. The Conservatives were represented by Mr T. W. Hughes (Flint) and Mr. Miles R. Partington (St Asaph), and the Liberals by Mr Morgan (Mold). Mr. Leonard Smith, butler at the Palace, to- gether with the gardener, bailiff, and coachman, applied for removal from Division 2, which only confers a Parliamentary vote, to Division 3, which includes a parochial and County Council vote. The Revising Barrister questioned Mr Smith minutely as to the terms of his appointment with the Bishop, and the applicant produced his rent-book, which showed that a six months' tenancy existed. As the other three applicants occupied houses under similar agreements,the trans- fer was allowed, but the Revising Barrister remar- ked on such lengthy notices.—The assistant overseer of Cwm reported that he had left the name of a local voter named Williams off the list because he had not paid his rates, ;Cl. 15s., due last January Mr Hughes argued on behalf of Williams that there was a sort of contra account running between him and the overseer, to whom he sold hay, the latter taking it out in rates. He was therefore under the impression that he had paid.—The name was struck off.—The station-master, Mr Mitford, who has recently been appointed, claimed a full vote for successive occupation from Rhuddlan station to St. Asaph.—The Conservatives objected, but the Revising Barrister said that although in the past station-masters residing on the station premises had been put on No 2, it had been decided that they were entitled to a full vote because their agreement with the railway company in most cases was a monthly tenancy. MM
The Season. The spell of fine weather has put quite a different complexion on harvest prospects, enabling the great bulk of the work to be got through with something like comfort and efficiency. While not too hot, the sun has been sufficiently strong, to- gether with moderate winds, to dry the corn sheaves into perfect condition for harvesting, with the result that nearly all may be said to be safely gathered in.' In the north the harvest has proceeded under considerable difficulties. But with the continuance of a fine September much may yet be done towards retrieving the character of what hfla promised to be at least an average harvest. The estimates vary. Some say 27 bushels to the acre will be the outside, while others are sanguine enough to place it at 29 bushels. But, splitting the difference, and placing the average at 28 bushels, it must be borne in mind that the area under wheat shows a decline of 156,000 acres, which would give a deficiency of 4,368,000 bushels alone quite independently of the character of the season. Pasture herbage is still plentiful all over the country, but unfortunate accounts respecting the potatoe disease continue to be received almost daily,
The Costermonger and his Donkey. "Stop beating that donkey," exclaimed a clergy- man angrily, as he passed a costermonger's cart on a hot July afternoon. The man in charge of the cart stayed the blows that he bad been dealing with cruel ferocity on the poor animal's back and head, and sullenly re- sumed his walk, roughly dragging the donkey with him by thn snaffle- The clergyman, who was the vicar of the parish through which the man and cart were proceeding, turned and walked with him. He was a humane man and would not allow an act of cruelty to pass unrebuked. Don't you know he said, that it is both wicked and cowardly to treat your poor beast in that manner p" There was no answer, but the man hung his head, and shuffled along un- easily; he wished that the parson would stop walking beside him; it made him feel as if be were being taken into custody, especially when he saw him take a note book from his .pocket, glance at the name and address on the cart, and dot something down with a pencil. I see," continued the vicar, that you live in the next village, and that your name is Hughes. 1 want you to promise me that you will in future treat your donkey with kindness and consideration. Rememberl that the same God who made you made it, for your use, not for your abuse; and if he knows when a sparrow falls to the ground, surely it must grieve him when he sees you ill-treating this poor animal.) The Vicar paused and they walked on in silence. Suddenly the man said, I did't know that God took notice of such things." "Yes," returned the Vicar earnestly, "Nothing escapes His notice. We are all the works of His hands, and His tender mercies are over all his works. There are many passages in the bible, that show (iod's care and thought for the dumb creatures that he has made. We are told too, that a righteous man regardeth (or oareth for) the life of his beast" (Prov. xii. 10). How can we expect God's blessing upon us if we misuse His gifts and inflict cruelty on His defenceless creatures." There was another silence, then the caster replied, I didn't know that the Almighty would care if I beat my donkey or not." "Ah said the Vicar, that is because you do not read your Bible. When Balaam struck his ass three times in anger, God opened its mouth to reprove him. (Num. xxii. 28, Jonah iv. 11). Then there are many other instances where God is spoken of as considering His dumb creatures' needs. When He saved the city of Nineveh from being destroyed on the repentance of its inhabitants, He mentions the cattle of the place as objectfl under his care, as well as the people. Then in the Psalms it is written, Thou presereest man and beast." Psalm xxxvi, 6. Then again, He causeth grass to grow for the cattle,' Psalin civ, 14, and in many other places you will find, if you come to read the Bible carefully, that God takes constant thought and care for dumb animals. Now, will you try to think a little more of these things, and be more gentle with your donkey P Yes, sir," replied the coster, hanging his head and looking ashamed of himself. That is right," said the Vicar. Do you ever go to church on Sundays? Not often, sir I've got out of the way of it somehow." "Well, you must make up your mind to go next Sunday," said the Vicar kindly, and always ask God. night and morning, for His grace to help you, for without that none of us are able to keep in the narrow way that leads to life." The Vicar then put into the man's hand a card with the following Collect printed upon it 0 God, who declarest thy almighty power most chiefly in shewing mercy and pity; merci- fully grant unto us such a measure of Thy grace, that ve, running the way of Thy commandments, may obtain Thy gracious promises, and be made partakers of Thy heavenly treasure; through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen."

Income Tax Overcharges. TO THE EDITOR Of THE RHYL JOURNAL. SIB,-The preparations of the Inland Revenue for the demand for the first payment of Income-Tax, at the rate of 5 per cent upon the amount of the income, are well advanced, and the bine notices of charge are now being delivered. Your readers who have made returns which have been ignored, or who have been assessed for the current year at a sum greater than the average of their profits for the year ending April 5th, 1900, must at once give notice of appeal in accord- ance with the instructions on the notice of charge. If they cAn furnish an accoant of their business tran- sactions (which is very simple by employing the Tax-payers Cash Book), the best course is to appeal to the "Special Commissioners," as these gentlemen are Government Officials, and, not being rival trades. men, nor influenced by personal, political, or other local feeling, may be relied upon to act with the greatest fairness. Moreover, if they find that the profits of the three years named show an average profit less than the amount upon which they paid tax lor 1899-1900, they should give notice of appeal in respect of that year also, and claim repayment of the amount overpaid. There is no time to lose in busi- ness appeals, while a claim to set-off a loss in farming or business against income from other sources must be lodged before October 6th next. Many people are now entitled to make a claim for three years to April 5th, last, where the income arises from investments, even when dividends are paid "free of income-tax," and the tax recoverable might amount to over L30. We shall be pleased to advise your readers gratuitously whether they are entitled to any repayment, on their sending us fall particulars of their incomes from all sources, and a stamped directed envelope for reply. Yours truly, THE INCOME-TAX ADJUSTMENT AGENCY, LTD. 12 & 13 Poultry, London, E.C., Sept. 11th, 1900.
