PRESTATYN NOTES. (CONTRIBUTED The Sunday delivery of letters has caused some discussion in Prestatyn, and a bumble petition has gone to the Postmaster General requesting that letters be delivered from house to house on Sundays. Some people are very mach shocked indeed at the proposed innovation, and the usual antediluvian arguments are trotted out against it. At present letters are handed across the post office counter on Sundays to callers this is an uncouth and troublesome arrangement, and causes more Sunday labour than the house delivery would. Yet, strange to say, there are some who would perpetuate the existing order of toings in pnv ference to a mode by which Sunday work would be lessened. The will of the majority, as is usually the case, is likely to carry the dav, possibly for the good of the protesting minority. These little disputes and differences are quite ebeerng when they crop up, keep our blood from con- gealing, and our brains and tongues from getting rusty. The difference between tweedledum and tweedle. dee has extraordinary fascinations for some people; in all ages of the world it has been so wars have been raged over it. states divided, families and friends estranged, ar.d all the while t 1 YiI'I the weightier matters of the law neglected, it those who argue so bitterly over the sanctity of the Sabbath, the day of rest (which, I hope, it always will be), w,re as keenly earnest and sincere in their endeavour that all should have six days' work and a living wage, not semi-starvation, as thousands have to put up with, their time would be better employed, and the world not the dreary place it is to multitudes. Prestatyn's rivals on the coast, I notice, are already making preparations and have completed engagements for the musical entertainment of the poblic during the coming season. As the poet truly sings in tboae well known lines- "Music hath charms to soothe the savage, rend a rock, or split a cabbage." Minstrels of various attainments have been engaged, brass bands provided, all tastes studied and everything done to add to the enjoyment of those on amusement bent. I am reminded of the sublime words of another poet, whose name I don't remember, but it deserves to be rescued from oblivion "Some like the Jew's harp, some like the flute, Others the piano with its trum, trum, trum, Some prefer the fiddle, with its twiddle, twiddle, twiddle, j j But all of us are partial to the drum, drum, drum." The time is approaching wben, if Prestatyn intends to march with the times and maintain its reputation for looking ahead, it may be considered wise to indulge in the luxury of a brass band. The details of the ways and means bow it is to be provided, I do not propose to consider. A subsidy, or guarantee would, perhaps, be necessary, supplemented by collections, as these Ltter being very erratic, could not be depended on alone to realise sufficient compensation to the instrumen- talists. The announce.ioent that "the collection will now be made" in church, chapel, or public meeting, is invariably the signal for much search- ins for and brushing of hats the right way, and a rush and scramble for the way out, and when the hat goes round at a musical performance in the open, it serves to disperse a crowd quicker than a shower of rain or the policeman's polite request to move on." As, however, the expenses likely to be involved in the proposition would be chiefly for the benefit of strangers and the resulting profit a doubtful quantity, I don't suppose anything will come of it for some time. Would it bring the butcher, the baker, or the grocer any more customers? The whole question hinges on that, We will therefore content ourselves, as in the past with the usual nigger troupe on the beach and the enchanting strains ground out by an occasional itinerant member of the Italian nobility. The Chairman of a neighbouring Urban District Council, referring to guide posts in his district, asked, "Why should we go to this expense to a s 11 oblige strangers P" Why, indeed, IsayPIs it, possible that we are all on the wrong b:ck! Prestatyn has just gone to great expense to procure an increased and permanent waier supply principally for consumption by strangers. There really does seem something quixotic in the ideli when viewed calmly and dispassionately. We keep on building new houses for strangers to come and live in tbem-how absurd! Rhyl and other towns on the coast erect piers, pavilions, arcades, churches, chapels, and schools for the amusement, edification, and instruction of tne stranger; this, according to the latellt doctrine, is a ridiculous waste ot money. iOur philanthropy must in future be confined to worthier objects, and the stranger, by reason of the txpense he entails, must be regarded all a pest and a nuisance. The police will now have strict orders to take into custody all wandering strangers, and without fear or favour, remorselessly "ruu em in.

Doctor: Oil, but you will be; 111 see to that." I see by the pnper," said Mrs. Hicks, "that you can buy a sealskin from the Esquimaux for two iron hoops and a tenpenny nail." "Very true," returned ilicks; "but I cant spare I lie t ime to l ake the hoops and the nail to the Esquimaux, and my bank wouldn't honour a cheque for two hoops and a tenpenny nail, so I don't see how we are benefitted by that state of affairs." A German clergyman, who lately travelled in Holland and England for the purpose of raising contributions for the support of Isis impoverished church, relates the following Characteristic anecdote: A Dutch merchant very readily presented him with fifty florins; but, perceiving that He at the same time cast a rueful glance at tM canvas bag which contained the money, the Clergyman said: n 1 shall send you the bag back n. I thank you sincerely," said the Hollander with a smile of satisfaction; "do so, if you please; bags are very scarce."

A company of ladies and gentlemen were loud in their praise of the conduct of a police- man who had stopped a runaway horse. r, "That's nothing to boast of," said Cham- poireau. "I have stopped more than ten cab horses in my time without moving from the «Pot." "Really! How did you manage it t Nothing easier.

THE STORY-TELLERS' COLUMN, A DISAPPOINTED WIFE. Mr. Topstyle came home from his office one evening with tIle glow of an approving conscience on his face. As he greeted his wife, lie said:— "I've brought you a present, dear; you will find it on one of the hall chairs. I knew it, was something that you really needed at once, otherwise I would not have selected it." "George!" cried his wife joyously, "how did you ever find it out ? I only decided this morning to go to the theatre with the lirownsmitihs, and I didn't realise myself until I looked at all my hats that I hadn't a tJnng large enough to wear on my head. "On your head ?— is the woman crazy? You'd have a hard time getting into any theatre with your head adorned with-" Oil, George, how stupid of me! I know now—it's that diamond ring I've needed so long. Never mind dear, I'd rather have it than the hat, and I can wear it to-night anyhow. I-I) But it isn't-" Yes; I might pretend that my glove hurt me and take it oft-or better yet, I might rub a hole through it with the stone, and then complain about it to Laura Brownsmith. It would be a great day when her husband brought her home a diamond ring without——" My dear, is your mind quite right? I said nothing about a diamond ring. I merely informed you that 1 had brought you something you really needed, and that the pnckage-" "George! George! Can it be that it is a sealskin jacket? Oh, how happy I am! You are the best husband in the whole world, George, and I only wish that I had not told mamma yesterday that you were cross—I really did not mean it at all, you know. But you shall just see what a good wife [ shall be in future." "My dear, is there any hereditary insanity in your family ? No but I am almost out of my wits with joy. Oh, I do hope it will fit! I must try it on at once, for I shall want to-" "Antoinette Topstyle, will you listen to me for one moment ? "Oh, George, a moment? An hour, a day, you dear thing. I "And will you kindly stop dancing about while I tell you about what I have really brought you ? "Of course I will, dear. Where did you get it, anyhow. Is it 32 or 34 inches long, and George, how much did you pay for it ? Antoinette," said her husband, with the accent of calm despair, if you don't stop a minute and listen, I shall commit suicide by cutting my throat, which would be unfortunate, and as the carpet is new, and my life insurance policy lapsed a week ago. What I really bought you- Is a sealskin jacket, I know "Now it's nothing of the kind. I never said it was. It is a pair of nice, warm, Arctic overshoes, the very thing that you need in going out to do your marketing, and But the room was empty; Mrs Topstyle had gone over home to tell her mother what a brute she had married. AN UNCONVENTIONAL TALE. The following story from the French of Francis Magnard is sufficiently unconven- tional to be interesting and has just enough probability to confirm the theory of the fatalist. A young man, an orphan, was sent to a rich banker at Paris with the warmest recommendations. The banker received him with open arms-our narrative begins to be improbable—and immediately offered him a good position with the house. A bookkeeper enters and tell the banker that somebody wishes to see him. I will be back at once," he says to his protege and leaves him in his private office. The young man glances carelessly around the room and sees on the table before him two packages of currency under a paper- weight. On each package is pinned a piece of paper bearing the magic words, one hundred thousand francs." A foolhardy idea flashes through the head of the young man. Nobody will notice," he says to himself, if I only for a minute in my life have 200,000francs in my pocket." With this he feverishly seizes the money. Hut in the same moment the money disap- pears in his pocket the banker enters. Well, my dear friend," he says, we consider the matter settled. Beginning with to-morrow morning you may consider yourself in my employ. Your salary will be 1,500 francs to commence with, but of course 1 liope it will not remain at that long." The young man feels his hair standing on end. The 200,000 francs burns against his breast. But what is he to do ? Put them back under the paperweight? His protector would notice it. Should lie tell him of his (-Iiii(lisli act"? The banker might find such a joke in very bad taste and refuse to employ a person who could be tempted to commit such a stupidity. What should he do? A sign from the banker signifies that the interview is at an end. The unfortunate rises, stammers his thanks and leaves the room with his 200,000 francs. First he thinks lie will throw himself into the Seine. Then he wants to put a bullet through his brains, then fly to Belgium, and at last, after an hour's insufferable anguish and fear, he decides to do what he ought to have done at first. He goes home, wraps up the money and encloses in the package a letter in which he confesseshis foolhardy stupidity and asks for forgiveness. This done he rushes into the street and hands the package to the first messenger he comes across. He has scarcely entered his garret again when there is a loud knock at the door. His heart beats wildly. The banker knows all. They have come to arrest him. He opens. Before him stands, with a contemptuous smile the messenger to whom he had given the package. Quickly locking the door behind him, the messenger rushes against him. So your conscience troubles you You are a sorry cowii-d First you commit a crime and then you get frightened. But I am not of that kind. I could have kept all of it, but I didn't want to. I said to myself half each IT ere is your share. The other I keep myself." And with this he hands the young man a I package of money. The miserable man stands as if struck by, lightning. He feels as if crushed to earth by fate. But suddenly he starts and cries You dare not, you wretch This money does not belong to you. I must and will have it." With this he rushes on thp man and seizes him by the throat. Are you crazy, fool ? laughs the powerful messenger as with a blow he frees himself. No stupidities or I will keep all." "Yes or 110 IVill you give me the money, you miseiable thief ? •< No that will never enter my head Beyond himself with rage and despair, the young man grasps a knife from the table and strikes. Tlie messenger sinks lifeless. The banker, as a matter of course, has missed the money. lIe notifies the police and puts them OJI the right track. When the guardians of the law enter the garret, thev" find the unfortunate lying on the iloor beside the dead and near him the pack- age of money. lie is arrested, charged with stealing and murdering his coufederate and sentenced to death.

RANDOM READINGS. PAT REPLIED. A portly old gentleman was with difficulty making his way down the street on a verj windy day. The strong gusts occasionalll carried him from side to side in a tacking SON of fashion, and finally brought him up with I crash ftgainst an Irishman who was plasterinj play-bills on a hoarding. The old gentleman very politely begged thi bill-poster's pardon, and hoped he had no: inconvenienced him much by getting in hii way. So much politeness puzzled the bill poster, and in a rich brogue he replied- If yez ain't in yer own way, ye're not 11 moine" THE BARRISTER COLLAPSED. During the trial of an assault case at a recenl petty sessions at a county town in Ireland, a very corpulent barrister cross-examined a wit- ness who had the misfortune to lose an eye. "Tell me, my man, on your oath, did you see the prisoner strike the plaintiff with the weapon mentioned ?" he asked. Yes, sor; as sure as guns' iron, I saw him. "Come now—none of that! How can you positively swear you saw him do it, and the sight of your eyes not altogether so good as it ought to be?" said the barrister. Witness (to magistrate): "Shure, yer honour, that don't make a bit of difference; and if it comes to that, shure I canjsee more than him," pointing to the fat barrister, any day!" How is that ? asked the magistrate. Well, yer honour, I kin see his boots, and that's more than he kin see at any time when he's got 'em on." Complete collapse^ of the barrister and loud laughter in court. HOW HE GOT IT. "Willie Wibbles is very young to be so distinguished," said the young woman who had just arrived at the summer resort. Distinguished! replied her friend. Yes. Everybody calls him' Professor. Oh! That's a title we gave him. You all he professes to adore every girl he meets." IS JUSTICE BLIND ? A popular young man was brought before a justice in Texas, charged with the offence of kissing a young lady" by force and against her will." The young lady, who was very handsome, gave her testimony in a modest and straightforward manner, after which the judge pronounced the following decision: i The Court in this case sympathises with I the defendant, and will therefore diseliargel him without a fine, imprisonment, or reprimand, because the court, whilst this case has been in progress, has been obliged to hold on o both arms of his chair in order to keep fIP\kissin8 complainant himkglf.
