Bible Society Meeting at Rhyl. MR HUGH JONES AND THE USE OF THE REVISED VERSION OF THE BIBLE. The annual meetings of the Rhyl auxiliary of the British and Foreign Bible Society have been held this week in the Town Hall, the English meeting taking place on Tuesday even- ing and the Welsh meeting on the following night. At tho English meeting, which was very thinly attended, the chair was occupied by Mr R M Hugh-Jones, J.P., and supporting him were the Revs. J R Ellis (Poitmadoc), T Lloyd (vicar of Rhyl), and J Verrier Jones, with Mr A Rowlands [Chon secretary). The singing was led by the junior choristers of St John's Church, Mr J D Asher presiding at the piano. The Chairman said that though the meeting was a small one-much smaller than they had had on previous occasions-he was pleased to hear that the amount sent up to the parent society during the past year was JE5 larger than the preceding contribution (applause). Continuing, he said there was one suggestion which, it occurred to him, he might make, with all respect to those who were better qualified to judge in the matter, and it was this had not the time come when more use might be made in public worship of the revised version of the English Bible ? For his own part he would be glad to to see it used in church, and he thought it would be a yery instructive commentary on the old version. He felt, moreover, that consider- ing the great amount of time and labour which had been bestowed upon it, it was not being used to the extent that it deserved. As on instance of the advantage of the revised version of the Bible over the old version he quoted a verse from the second lesson for Christmas Day, to be read in Church, which according to the old version read thus, "Thou hast multiplied the the nation and not increased their joy," where- as in the revised version this passage read, "Thou hast multiplied the nation. Thou hast increased their joy. No doubt many people were deeply attached to the words of the old version, but where accuracy was in question surely they must prefer correctness before the sacredness of old associations ( applause). As for the work the Bible Society was doing, whether they were present in large or small numbers that night, he did not think it needed any words from him to commend it to their warm support he only expressed his hope that every year they might see an increasing interest taken in the society's work and increased con- tributions to its funds (applause). The Hon Secretary, in presenting his annual report, said that the credit for the work being done in Rhyl on behalf of the society should go to the lady collectors ( applause). During the time he had been connected with tho Rhyl auxiliary the town had contributed over £700 to the parent society's flinds-(applatise )—to say nothing of what had been sent up previous to that period. They started the past year with a balance in uand of X-7) 18s. 3d, and the collections at the meeting twelve months ago amounted to £2 2s. 6d. During the year the various districts had contributed a total of £ 30 0s. 2d, made up as follows:—District No. 1, collectors, Airs Hughes ( River Street) and Miss Price ( Aquarium Street), £3 14s. 5d No 2, Miss Jones ( Elm House), £10 3s; No. 3, Miss Jones (Heathville) and Miss Reid (Craig- mor), £ 8 No. 4, Miss Williams (5G West Parade) and Miss Jones (King's Avenue), £ 4 13s. 3 No 5, Mrs W E Jones (23 River Street;, R3 4s 3d No. (i, Miss Dowell and Miss Price, £ 3 158 3d No. 7, Mrs T D Jones and Mrs J T Jones, £5 lOe. With a bank interest of tld the income side totalled £47 Is 8d for the year. Ofthat amount £40 had been forwarded to the parent society-95 in excess of last year's contribution—and R3 18s had been spent on printing, advertising, &c., leaving a balance to be carried forward of 13 3s 8d (applause). The adoption of the report was moved by Councillor R Oldfield and seconded by Mr R Broadie Griffiths, the latter gentleman com. menting upon the fact that the town's con- tribution to the parent society during the past year was no ereaterithan the amount sent up in 1891, notwithstanding that the population of the town was now some 2,000 more than it was twelve years ago, [and also in a better financial position. The Chairman having endorsed what had been said with regard to the debt of gratitude that was due to the collectors, the motion-with which was coupled a hearty vote of thanks to the officers, the committee, A "n_. and especially the collectors, for their services during the past year, together with a request that they all continue in office another year-- was etrried with acclamation. The Rev J R Ellis, as the parent society's representative, then gave the meeting the bene- fit, in a most interesting speech, of his own experience of what a useful work the society was doing, stating at the outset that for ten years he had had the opportunity of being an eye-witness of its very effective operations in the mission field of South India. After giving an outline of the progress that had been made in the direction of Christianity amongst the 22 millions of people of South India who spoke the Tamil language—a language in which as a Welshman he was delighted to find the guttu- ratsof the'grand old Welsh language figured so prominently—Mr Ellis went on to say that the duplicity of the average educated Hindoo formed at the present time one of the greatest barriers to the evangelisation of India, but on the other hand he was thankful to say that the great truths of the Bible wife exerting a healthy and powerful influence on the minds and hearts and even the lives of thousands of those educa- ted Hindoos (applause). Concluding, he pro- posed "That this meeting expresses its unbounded satisfaction and gratitude to God for the great and glorious work done by the British and Foreign Bible Society at home and abroad, and pledges itself to renewed prayers and exertions for the continuance and increase of its prosperity thoughout the world." Mr Edward Jones briefly seconded the motion and, like the previous one, it was enthusiasti- cally adopted. A collection on behalf of the society and votes of thanks to the deputation and chairman terminated the meeting.

Dyserth. Property for Sale. Mount Clwyd Cottage, Ochr-yr-Foel, Dyserth, which with the adjoining land embraces an area of about 16 perches, was offered for salo by auction by Mr Francis Geary at the Alexandra Hotel, Rhyl, on Tuesday.—la commending the property to those present Mr Geary said it was hardly necessary to remind them of the popularity which Dyserth enjoyed, especially in summer, and when the much-talked of railway station was opened there it was bound to become still more popular as a residential locality. As for the property he was offering that day, though small, it was well built and commanded a view unequalled in the Vale of Clwyd —Bidding commenced at fi50, but only reached £ 165, at which figure tho property was withdrawn. Mr J Pierce Lewis, Rhyl, was solici- tor for the vendor.
The Advertising Association. On Friday evening, at the monthly meeting, Mr Holbache, hon secretary, reported that the Presi- dent (Mr Ashtield) and himself had drawn out an address to the ratepayers calling attention to the work and uti ity of the association. The meeting discussed the programme for next year, which includes suggestions for poster publication, a handbook for the information of inquirers, &c. The association's finances are now exhausted, and six members present kindly promised to collect funds for the ensuing season's work from sub- scribers and others. The question of issuing posters and guides was postponed until it is known what funds are available. The meeting passed a resolution in tavour of having some of the promen- ade lamps lighted up during the winter months. A resolution was proposed asking the Council to call a public meeting in connection with the library question, but not persisted in on an assurance being given that the Council had pledged itself to convene such a meeting.

Pleasant Saturday Evenings at Rhyl. Recognising no doubt that it was more agree- able indoors than outside last Saturday, the patrons of the popular week-end entertainments soon filled the Boys' Brigade Hall. Councillor A Lewis Jones again presided, and was supported by Mr Godfrey Parry. The opening item was a pianoforte solo by Miss Mabel Hughes. Then came a song, The soft shell crab," by Miss Dorothy Jones, whose praiseworthy effort was followed by a duet by Misses Bertha Hewitt and Amelia Hughes, who sang sweetly Won't you buy my pretty flowers?" "The fireman's wedding" was next recited by Miss Violet Church in a manner well meriting the encore which was demanded of her. A pianoforte solo by Mr L J Foster and song (encored) by Miss Mattie Lewis were the next two items. A trio by Misses B Hewitt, Ethel Hughes and Amelia Hughes ledito such a demand for another encore that the Chair- man remarked good humouredly that if they kept onjcalling for encores like that he would have to announce that the next item would be a chorus by the audience—" We won't go home till morning (laughter). In response to the recall the trio sang "Home,sweet home."After a song by Mr AW James the Chairman said it was proposed to hold the next concert in the Town Hall,and he trusted that the support which had been so manifest already this season would be even more pronounced. They were expecting Mr W J Storey to preside, and members of the Field Naturalists' Club would be taking no small part'in the programme. Referring to the Orchestral Society's concert which had been arranged for Thursday evening,Mr Jones also said the conductor, Mr J D Asher, had promised to assist at a Pleasant Srturday Evening concert later on (applause). On the 28th inst, the pro- gramme would include a duet competition for children under 16 years of age. The second part of the programme was as follows :—Pianoforte solo, Mr F G Barnett; song, "Thou gentle dove," Miss Nellie Cheney whistling solo, Bird imitation," Mr Joseph Evans ( encored ) song, Miss Mattie Lewis; trio, Misses Laura Bathgate,Nellie Williams and Amelia Hughes; recitation, "Charge of the Light Brigade," Mr Samuel Parry song Mr A W James song, Mias Laura Bathgate National Anthtir. The accompanists were Misses Mabel Hughes and Winnie Jqnes.
Important to Lodging-house Keepers, At the Aberystwyth County Court a lodging-house keeper brought an action I Z, against Mr Geo Griffiths, grocer, Digbeth, n for the recovery of JE21 loss sustained and expenses incurred through the bringing of children there to lodge who were suffering from scarlet fever. It was given in evidence that one of the children was in a peeling stage a week previously. The defence was a plea of ignorance as to the children's con* dition. The jury found in favour of plaintiff for the full amount.

Colwyn Bay. A Foolish Youth. Samuel James Owen, an apprentice, was on Saturday charged with being armed with offensive weapons, a dagger, a revolver, and ball cartridges. Having threatened a fellow-lodger, he produced a knife in a sheath in one hand and a revolver in the other. Fortunately by this time the fellow- lodger had been advised to leave the house. For the defence it was argued that the act was "merely a stupid thing." The magistrates said the defendant had narrowly missed getting him- self into serious trouble, and in dismissing the case they hoped it would be a warning to other boys one of them remarking that firearms when regarded as playthings were sometimes all the more dangerous on that account.
Temperance. Huwco Penmaen and the Rev Morgan Davies, Abergele, were among the speakers at the East Denbighshire Temperance Association annual meetings at Wrexham, where a resolution was passed That no scheme of temperance reform can be accepted by us which provides for money compensation to the trade, or anything of the nature 01 the rnvmiciptflwatiou of the liquor traffic," -3^
I SOUTHPORT TAX COLLECTOR 3 IN TROUBLE, e COMMITTED FOR EMBEZZLEMENT. William Fleming Scarlett, late assistant-over- seer for Birkdale, and also income-tax collector for Sonthport made his third appearance before the Birkdale Magistrates, on Monday, on a charge of embezzling moneys belonging to the Birkdale Overseers of the Poor Ds. 3d., and with falsification of his accounts. Five of the six cases were all of one class, the receipts being given from an illicit receipt book which was not produced to the auditor at the half-yearly audit. These particular items varied from about four to eight pounds. In another c.1."e, that of John Coke, a cheque for JE27 5s. 5d. was paid to the prisoner, who gave a proper receipt, but on the counterfoil he only entered 2s. as having been paid by a Mrs. Lane on quite another date. The cheque was banked forthwith, but the total paid in was short of the day's receipts by £27 3s. 5d. On October 30th the accounts were audited af Ormskirk, and in consequence of something which transpired one of the overseers, Jr. Hayes, made an appoint- ment to meet the prisoner on the following Wednesday Then something else transpired, and Mr. Haves went twice to prisoner's house on the Sunday, but was unable to see him, although he heard his voice inside. He forth- with communicated with the police, and fr. Scarlett was arrested at his house by Inspector Hodgson, to whom the prisoner said, I am done for now." Evidence having been called, prisoner was committed to the Liverpool Assizes, bail being refused.
BY INSANE MOTHERS. At the Northamptonshire Assizes, on Tuesday, Annie Clarke, wife of a Northampton shoe opera- tive, was indicted for murdering her infant daughter on August 26th. The accused, who is the mother of eight children, cut the child's throat with a shoemaker's knife, and then at- tempted suicide. The husband returned home to find his wife unconscious, and the child lying dead on the floor. Mrs. Clarke was declared of unsound mind, and ordered to be detained during His Majesty's pleasure. Emma Lydia Peacock (28), wife' of a Peterborough drover, who mur- dered her two little children last July, was, at the same Assizes, found to be insane, and ordered to be detained during the King's pleasure.
THE MACEDONIAN LEADER. HERO OF TWENTY BATTLES. I have had a conversation (sa.ys the" Times" correspondent) with Boris Sara-folf. The famous Macedonian leader is a young man, not. yet thirty years of age. He bears traces of the severe hard- ships he has undergone during the past. nine months. During this period he fought twenty battles with the Turks, in which several of his tnusurl lieu ton ants were killed. Moi<e 'than once he narrowly escaped capture. A large re- ward has been offered for his head by the Turks. Sa.rafoff assured me that all hostile operations are now suspended, and will only be resumed in the spring if the Powers fail in the meantime to biding about an improvement in the condition of the Macedonian population.
EXTRAORDINARY LIFT-WELL FATALITY. An inquiry was held, on Tuesday, at West- minster, into the circumstances attending the death of Lamont Donald Meredith (27), a. night watchman employed at the garage of the Electrio Carriage Co., Ltd., in Belgravia, London. About eleven o'clock on Sunday night deceased's wife and brother-in-law went to the garage to see Meredith. They were on the ground floor, where many cars were lying. At the end of the large room is a lift to take cars down into the base- ment. The lift was down at the bottom, some twenty feet below. Deceased said he would show his visitors the cars, and jumped on to the box of an electric carriage, and drove it once round the hall. In his second circuit he oollid.nl with another car, lost control of his machine, and drove straight to the lift-well. The force of the car burst through the lift-door, and car and man went down the well together. He was found below dead, and it took two hours to recover the body. The jury returned a verdict of "Accidental death."
SERIOUS TRADE DEPRESSION AT BARROW. A very serious depression in trade is being experienced at Barrow. The steel works are closed this week, and it is doubtful if there will be anything like a full resumption of work before the New Year. At the ironworks only four furnaces out of twelve are in blast. The men employed in the Furness Railway Company's works have been put on short time, the week finishing on Friday night and not commencing till breakfast-time on Monday. At the naval construction works of Messrs. Vickers, Sons, and Maxim there is a fair amount of Government work in hand, but it will be some time after Christmas before this can be got ready, and, as present orders are being worked out, consider- able batches of men being paid off every week. The outlook in Barrow has not been so gloomy since the great Durham strike, when the works were stopped for want of fuel. In the dis- trict the prospect is equally bad. Many miners and quarrymen are out of employment; no work at all is being done at Askham ironworks, and a furnace has been put out at Millom.
THE PAUPER'S WATCH. The Rochdale Board of Guardians have spent a great amount of time in deciding the sum to 00 paid for the watch of a deceased pauper. An Irishman nimed Flatley had been an inmate of the imbecile ward at Dearnley, and when he died he had in his possession a watch, purse, and a few other articles. The parish priest in co. Mayo, where the father of the deceased resided, applied to the Guardians for the articles to be handed over, as the father desired to keep the watch in memory of his son. The members of a. committee spent over an hour and a half in dis- cussing the question. The priest pointed out that the father was a poor man struggling for exist ence, and could not possibly pay the 30s. de- manded for the watch, but that he (the priest) was himself willing to pay a nominal sum for the watch. Again the Committee deliberated upon the matter and reduced the sum demanded by one-third. A Catholic member moved w. amend- ment that the sum be further minced to 10s., but this was objected to "on principle," and de-. feated by eight votes to six. As the matter stands at present, if Flatley s.e11r desires the watch as a memento of his son he will have to pay the Guardians the sum of JS1, unless, as wag suggested, individual members of tho Board make a collection and present the watch to the father.
REMINISCENCE OF THE JACOBITE REUELUON, The death of the William Daore, who waa the Vicar of Irthington, Cumberland, from 1852 to 1898, when he retired owing to declining health, is a reminder that he formed an interesting link with the '45. He was a scion of the famous Cumberland family of that name, and was a grand-nephew of that Rosemary Dacre, who, al- though a mere infant at that time, figured pro- minently in one of the episodes of the Jacobite Rebellion. Her father, Joseph Dacre, of Kirk- linton Hall, had married Catherine Fleming, a daughter of Sir George Fleming, who was Bishop of Carlisle about the middle of the eighteenth century. In the autumn of 1745 their child was born at Rose Castle, the residence of Airs. Dacre'g father. Shortly after the birth of the infant a company of Highlanders, headed by Captain Macdonald, arrived at the Castle on a marauding expedition. The Captain was warned by an old grey-headed servant of the family that any alarm might cause the death of the mother and child. Sieeing the child in its cradle, the Captain took on his cockade, and pinned it on the cap of the child, so that it might be protected from other marauders. Captain Macdonald and his men were regaled with beef and cheese and ale, and left without making the smallest disturbance. The cockade was careiully preserved by the family, and became one of the treasured posses- sions of Rosemary Dacre. She married Sir Johji Clerk, Bart., of Penny&nick, but was left a widow before the end of the century. She spent her long widowhood in Edinburgh, where she numbered among her acquaintances Sir Walter Scott and other men of letters of that period. She always wore the cockade on her birthday' but when George the Fourth visited Scotland she presented it to him. She lived till about 1833, when her grand-nephew, the now deceased Wil- liam Dacre, was six years of age. It is note- worthy that the two lives cover the long period of 150 years.
A witness at a Wandsworth inquest said he had known a man of forty to be refused work because his hair was grey.

WYRLEY CATTLE LUMING. ANONYMOUS LETTERS THE WORK OF SCHOOLBOYS. In connection with the anonymous letters concerning the cattle maiming outrages at Great Wyrley a boy named .Joseph Edward Emery, aged 11, appeared before a full Bench of Magis- trates at Cannock on Monday. Inspector Camp- bell said that about 7-45 p.m. on Saturday Emery was brought to the police station by his father, who stated that his son had been writing letters to people at Bridgtown. The lad Raid he had written a letter to Mr. Hughes and one to Ir. West wood. lIe and another boy had seen letters in the papens, and they had a try at letter writing. Witness in- quired how long- it was since they wrote to Mr. Hughes, and Emery said, "A good while." He put the letter under the door. The lad also ad- mitted writing other letters. He wrote them in tho Hoard School at Cannock. Wit- ness told the boy he should take him into custody on a charge of sending a letter threatening to murder Mr. Hughes. He began to cry. The boy was entered in the charge book but not locked up, witness accepting his father's bail. Simon Walker, the second boy referred to, was also charged jointly with Emery with send- ing a letter to Mr. Hughes threatening to murder him on the 10th inst. Walker said" I didn't write the letter, but was with Emery when he posted it and he told me what it was about." The boys were remanded for a week, bail being allowed.
TRAMPS AND THEIR CHILDREN. At a meeting of the Clitheroe Board of Guardians on Monday, a communication was read from the Staines Union asking the Board to support a resolution calling upon the Local Government Board to obtain legislation dealing with thp question of the children of casuals being dragged about the country from union to union. The resolution also urged that it should be made a criminal offence for the children of casuals up to the age of 16 to be brought by their parents into the casual ward. Mr. H. Jenner- Fust, who was present, spoke in favour of the resolution. The latter part of the resolution was more a matter for the Home Office than the Local Government Board, as the duties of carry- ing it out would fall upon the police. It was decided to support the resolution.
DEAN'S OBJECTION TO THE "DREAM OF GERONTIUS." At a meeting of the Gloucester Musical Festival stewards it was proposed to perform Dr. Elgar's "Dream of Gerontius" at the next Festival. The Dean, however, said it was simply impossible to allow the work to be sung in the Cathedral without some expurgation. It was a most beautiful and attractive work, but the Cathedral performances were sacred services and not concerts, and if "The Dream of Ge-rontius" were selected he should like to see what parts could be omitted before he gave his final consent. The standing committee of the stewards subsequently discussed the programme, and it was decided that Elgar's oratorio, "The Apostles," should be given, and that Sir Hubert Parry and Mr. A. H. Brewer should be invited to write new works for the Festival.
PHOTOGRAPH OVER HER HEART. NURSE'S SINGULAR ATTEMPT AT SELF- DESTRUCTION. A lady, attired in the garb of a nurse, was found on the London and North-Western 'Rail- way line between Crewe and Sandbach on Mon- day with shocking injuries. She was conveyed to Ae railway company's hospital at Crewe. Inquiries show1 that the lady, a Nurse Hodgkin- son, of Crewe, premeditated suicide. The follow- ing letter was found in one of her pockets, written from the E'uston Hotel, London "For the inquest.—From Nurse S. Hodgkinson, "Infirmary, Uttoxeter, Staffordshire, Sir,—Just a line to let you know I am taking my own life. I am not mad; only strange at times, but that is nothing, so you must do what you like to dispose of my body. Be as kind as you can with my mother and relatives. I have sent them all word, and I hope they will all soon forget me; but when you are ill and have no money you don't like to sponge on your people or rela- tions, although they have all been so kind in coming forward to help me in my trouble. I was one for work, and have always been so strong. Believe me to remain, yours sincerely, "NURSE S. HODGKINSON." When examined at the hospital a plaster was found over her heart, and on this being moved a photograph of a young man was underneath. The woman is frightfully injured on the head.
PROFESSOR SADLER ON ENGLISH EDUCA- TION. Professor Sadler delivered at the Victoria Uni- versity of Manchester, on Monday night, the last of his series of addresses on educational subjects. Hie theme was the need for a scientific investiga- tion in education. What was wanted, he sand, was a wise and enlightened reform of our edu- cation from top to bottom. Our education must have a social and national aim. Proceeding to compare the schools of the United States with those in England, he said in many of the former the atmosphere vibrated with patriotism. We did not want to impose a. too precise political aim on our edncation, becanso no living man was wipe enough to tell us what the political struc- ture a generation hence might be. Professor Sadler went on to speak of the necessity for pay- ing increased attention to the artistic side of education, which, he said, at present was mal- treated and stunted. He wished to see a prepa- ratory school and public school that had been able to liberate themselves from the fetters of scholarship examinations, and he also advo- cated the establishment of an attractive primary school with sm.all classes of children so that indL vidual attention could be given to ev-ery one of the pupils. The lecturers other suggestions were thç, erüiliml of an experimental elementary school in which more time should be given to manual work of all kinds, improved female edu- cation, and edncation for adult citizens. No county was more suitable for carrying out such experiments than Lanpashire.
— ROMANCE ON THE RAILWAY. SEQUEL TO A CHANCE MEETING WITH A LADY. At the West London Police Court, on Friday, an Italian, named Alexander, was charged, be- fore Mr. Rose, with travelling on the London and North-Western Railway without having inud his fare, and with intent to avoid payment. Prisoner travelled from Liverpool to Willesden, where he was asked for his ticket, but said he had lost it. The booking-clerk at Lime-st.. Liverpool, on Fri- day. said there was only one ticket issued by the train by which the prisoner travelled, and he identified the prisoner as the man who received t-, Detective-Inspector Rogers said that from the in- quiries he had made it appeared that prisoner travelled from Liverpool to Willesden with a young lady who liad run away from her home in the North of Ireland. They crossed over on the same boat, and had each stayed at a different hotel. They met day after day, and it appeared that prisoner had persuaded her tv. abandon her intention of proceeding to Manchester and in- btOJad to go to London, where he said he would take her to a respectable hotel near Euston-rd. It seemed that they must have both travelled with the one ticket. The young lady had a considerable sum of money in her possession, and after some difficulty ho had succeeded in finding her, and &he was now present to give evidence, if he young lady was called, and gave her namp as Annie Donnelly, and her address as Corrigellon, County Leitrim, Ireland. The witness said she left her home on Thursday, the 5th. She had not quarrelled with her parents, but they did not know where she was going. She did not make the prisoner's acquaintance till she saw him in Lime-st. Station. He asked her if she was going to London. She replied No." He, however, persuaded her to go, and went with her to get a ticket at the booking office. She put down two half-sovereigns, but she could not say if she or he picked np the ticket. Anyhow, she had it in her glove all the way to London.—Mr. Rose: Did he spend any money whilst he was with you in Liverpool ? Witness On one occasion he pur- chased a glass of lemonade for me, and on Tues- day afternoon I had tea with him.—Detective- Inspector Rogers said when the prisoner was, searched he had no money uro Prisoner I maintained that he fcurcnased the ticket, but Mr liose wad Of the contrary opinion, and fined the prisoner 40s., in default, 14 days.
