To Miss Viz ro alill lhe with her iu the W"l k. u, of tbe Hos ital, the Committee feel that no mere expr asinii of thanks cau at lilt convey their deep sense of latitude for their self sacrificing labours: but thev know that to such labours the work itselt is its owu &I exetwding gi-eat reward." They desire 1 stlv to express their obligation to the Hon. Chaplain, the Medic il Officers, and the Auditor-, for oootiuuiusr. their kind w.rvi(-em; Mrs Belly-* (the editor of 4* Litile F .Iks "), Nurse Williamson, and others, for their welcome gifts of flowers fruit, game, vegetabl s. toys, books, 011 linen scrap book-i, &c., and to the church ut Holy Triu- iiv, Shrewsbury, for sending flowers from flower i service. Tue Jubilee was celebrated in a most loyal man- ner at the Hospital. Mr Peter Browne kindly gave a uumber of flags, and further decorations ot lamps and hunting were chiefly due to the kind- ness of Mrs Arthur Anson, who sent a large con- signment of things, in addition to the many gif It continually being received from her, for all or which the Committee beg to express their best thanks. To Mrs Watkin Williams, Mrs Evans, and Mrs Huttou many thanks are due for inviting the child- ren into the country, giving them tea, and sending them back with presents of flowers, aptdes, & Mrs Townshend Main waring al,o kindly invited a party of laay patients from the Convalescent Home, who greatly enjoyed an aitel noon at GaUtfaenan. The Committee canoot close the notice of gifts, &c., without speoiatiy thanking the tradespeople of Rhyl, who came forward moat liberally, not only at Christmas with presents of turkeys, cakes, oranges, &c., but at the time of the sale of work contributed largely from their stock in trade, to which, in a great measure, the success of the sale was due. Gifts of scarlet flannel jacketh are always most valuable. Patterns of them, and of the navy-blue frocks and red and. white pinafores worn by the chiluren, can always be obtaiued from the Lady Superintendent. Old linen, vegetables, and oranges, for the use of the children, will be most thankfully received The statement of accounts showed the total eceipts to be X3735 188 10d., of which £240 9s. lid was balance from last year a account, and the total expenditure L'J 195 14s. 2d., leav- ing a balance of £ 540 4s. 8d. in the treasurer 8 J hands (applause). ms urttce said he had very great pleasure in moving the adoption of the report so kindly rt»d by the Dean of St. Asaph (hear, hear) TUty wers an very glad to tind a satisfactory account in regard to that adn ir ible hospital (applause), and that it was going on increasing in its beneficent work, and in offmimm; j • there were possible—and so much so that there was very little to be said except to con-> gratulate all those concerned in the work, and those who had derived such benefits from that admirable hospital (applause). He did not uite mderstand the report with regard tb district nursing. He would like to know whfether the hospital did the nursing for the town bf Rhyl. The Dean I think that nurses ard sent out from the hospital His Grace But there is no systematic nurs- ing ? Dr. Eyton Lloyd The nurses are supplied froth the hospital when asked tor. They did a great deal of work last year His Grace Did they then covered all the ground ] Dr Eyton Lloyd: They cover all the neces sary ground. His Grace: My duty, without making any speech, is to move the adoption of the report (applause). The Dean of St. Asaph: I have great plea-i sure in seconding the mi tion. The motion was then put to the meeting and unanimously carried. Dr Tumour said it gave him great pleasure in moving that the grateful thanks of that meeting be given to Miss Vizard,the lady super- intendent and the ladies associated wit her, for their valuable services in connection with the Alexandra Hospital He was quite sure they would all agree with the resolution He could say that for his own part he had never visited that Hospital without coming away impressed with its efficient state, and the charming way in which the nursing was managed there (ap plause.) Mr Gold Edwards had great pleasure in seconding the resolution He was quite cer- tain that they all felt extremely obliged to Miss Vizard and the other ladies associated with her for the interest they have taken in the welfare of the children. His Grace also sxpressed the pleasure it gave him to support that resolution. The I-adies heartily deserved all that had been said ap- plause. The motion was put to the maeting and un aniraously carried The Rev. Watkin Williams moved that the best thanks of the meeting be accorded to the Dean of St. Asaph the Medical Officers the Finance Committee, the Auditor and chaplain, for thpir valuable services in connection with the hospital during the past year (applause). They were all aware that ro carry on an institu- tion of that kind it was necessary that a great many different people should contribute their sbiare to the work (hear. aear) As regards his friend, thf Dean whom they were all glad to see amongst them be could only say that when he (the speaker) was in his place he found it to be most pleasant work, and he trusted that Major Mainwaring,who was to succeed the Dean in the office of treasurer would also find it the same (applause). As regards the medical officers who performed a very necessary part of the hospital work, he was in a position to speak on the authority of Miss Vizard. that nothing could exceed the attention they paid to all per- sons placed under their charge (applause) As to his friend the Chaplain, he could only say that in one sense, the spiritual charge of the in- mates of the hospital was a very large increase on his work, ani he believed him to be one of the hardest worked officers in connection with the hospital (applause). He bad great pleasure in moving that the best thanks ef the meeting be given to the officers named (cheers). Col Mesham had great pleasure in seconding the resolution which was put to the meeting and carried with acclamation The Dean thanked them very much for the kind vote of thanks passed- As far as he was concerned his duties had been extremely light and pleasant He was very glad indeed that he had been able to secure the services of Col. Main waring as his successor whom he was sure I would carry out the work with extreme effici- ency (applause.) Dr A. Eyton Lloyd, as one of the medical officers, also thanked them for their kind ex pression of thanks. He had always very great pleasure in serving the hospital and doctors believed they there came in contact with sufer ing humanity in a form in which they did not come in contact with generally. He would only say that practise in hospitals wasjone of the most pleasant features in the profession because of the efficiency of the nursing work in hospitals, and that was especially so in Rhyl (cheers. In I fact good nursing was halfthe battle With re gard to the nurses supplied by the hospital for i private work they could not speak too highly of, the work done by them. When he bad occasion 1 to meet them as a medical man they had given him complete satisfaction (applause). He had been per fitted to distribute in the room a cir- cular, embodying a letter addressed to a local j p .per ( Rhyl lieeord as Advertiser) with the ob ject of having an accident ward attached to the hospital and the hospital authorities had' kindly placed a room at his disposal (hear hear). They had, at Rhyl. in the summer bathing fa- talities. and they bad nowhere whatever to take the persons to. If these persons could be taken to a ward in the hospitaf he believed it would be the rtieans of saving life as the sand and the cold shingle was not the proper place to put anyone on He merely mentioned the matter, aLd hoped it would meet with their ap- proval (cheers). The Rev. J 0. Evans was much obliged for their kind vote of thanks. It w is to him a peculiar pleasure to feel that he had been of some little use. .Ur Murray Browne said that they ought not to separate without passing a vote of thanks to the Chairman He had taken great interest in the work in more than one way and had given rau h time and put himself to much trouble in attending these annual meetings applause). Tue motion was un mimously carried, and his Grace in reply said I have very great pleasure, especially in this weather in making a journey to Rhyl as it is such a cheerful place (laughter and cheers).

Pengwern, and others a quantity of coal was distributed on Saturday last. 18th inst among the poor of this parish The recipients comprised fifty widows and others who are sick and unable to work the majority receiving three cwt. ach. All expressed their deep gratitude to the givers for their acceptablegift and timely remembrance of them. Mr Stokes has only recently come to reside in the neighbourhood, but during the short time he has been here he has given work to many people. and has taken much interest in the welfare and comfort of the poor.—The late Mrs Wynne Jones Olinda, used to distribute a quantity of coal here for many years, and as this estimable lady was a native of Rhuddlan the inhabitants fondly hope that her heirs will continue to do the same.

(CopxrigM.) ,(}Jt!NSCO= BY ANGBLO J. LEWIfl. ..1 Yes, I have certainly aftak. that tad, befA But where?" Over and over again Ijhad palf tiie same question to myself, but it seemed as far from solution as ever. It was a winter night in the year 19. I had been spending the evening with a friend at High- gate, and, after a long, dreary walk throigh snow and sleet, had just got back to my snug Irooms at St. Lazarus'Hospital, where I held thei office of resident surgeon. It was nearly midnight, but I did not feel inclined for sleep, and having taken off my overcoat and put on my slippers, Iidrew my easy-chair up to the nre, and sat d6wn t^ enjoy a 3uiet pipe. I had finished one pipe, and was eliberatmg whether to have another, Mien my eyes chanced to fall on an object placed on a side- table, and covered with a green baike cloth. Another subject, I suppose," I said, hauf aloud. I crossed the room, an(f lifted the baize. On a wooden slab, which I was accustomed to, use as a dissecting table, lay, as I had anticipated,la human head, newly severed from the body. I should here explain that I had been for some time past devoting special attention to the various forms of brain disease, and that the dissecting-room porter had a standing order that whenever a subject was known to have suffered from that class of disease, the head was to be reserved for me. I recognised the present specimen as that of a young woman who had been brought into the hospital two days previously, suffering from acute brain-fever, and whom, from the first, there had be&i but little hope of saving. After looking at it for a momeht or two, I covered the head once more, relighted" my* pipe, and took up the Lancet again, for I was in the middle of an interesting article. But I found that I could no longer concentrate my attention on my reading. Somehow or other my thoughts would wander back to that grisly object on the side-table. My medical experience had ma e me too familiar with the relics of mortality for them to excite anything like the nervous horror or repulsion whieh such objects arouse in the non- pi ofessional mind. My interest in the head arose repulsion which such objects arouse in the non- pi ofessional mind. My interest in the head arose from a very different cause. I could not help fancying that, somewhere or other, I had seen that face before. I remembered that the same idea had c ossed my mind when the dying girl, with the close-cut hair, was first brought into the ward, but J had almost immediately discarded it, thinking that I must be deceived by some chance likeness. Now, however, the idea recurred to me with redoubled force, and do what I might, I could not drive it away. I ransacked my memory, but in vain. I could not localise the face, and yet, as I reflected, the conviction grew stronger and stronger that the features were somehow familiar to me. Once more I rose from my chair, and, removing the cloth, gazed at the head for some I minutes, trying to recall the missing link of association, Dut in vain. Again I sat down, and my thoughts strayed away to that grim triptych in the Musle Wiertz, at Brussels, m which are represented the fancied sensations of a severed head during the first three minutes after decapita- tion. I wondered whether there was any real foundation for the belief of Sue and Sommering, so terribly illustrated by the genius of the artist; whether a head once severed from the body could under any circumstances think and feel, for ever so short a time. I recalled the experiment said to haVe been tried by the great French surgeon, Vel. peau, on the poisoner De la Pommerais, and the asserted fact that the severed head of the criminal did, by a movement of the eyelid, as previously agreed between them, prove that it he&rd and understood the voice of its questioner. I found myself speculating on the mystery of life whether there could by any possibility be a life of the brain after the life of the heart had ceased, and the spinal cord was severed. And ever and anon, amid my other reflections, came back the original puzzle, Where had I seen that face before ? 41 Ah," I thought, If those silent lips could speak, they might give me the answer to my riddle And then a still more startling thought flashed through my brain, an idea so wild, so unheard. of, that it almost took away my breath. In my earlier student days I had amused myself by practising mesmerism, and had found myself to possess the mystic power in a very unilsual de- gree. What if I could impart some of my own vitality to that silent brain, compel it to live once more, and answer the riddle that baffled me. It was a wild, almost insane idea, too extravagant for Serious consideration. I tried to dismiss it, | but it would not be shaken off, and I determined at last that I would i t any rate try the experiment. I locked my door, for I should have been ashamed to be surprised in so extravagant an occupation and then, utv the head and placing it in a convenient pwium, I began to make mesmeric passes over it. At first I ex. perienced an uneasy fee Vng, as though I were a Wizard, pmcti¡n unlawful arts, And half afraid of the -ult. But this feeling speedily Wore off, a;: i i found myself notonly ardentlydesiringtosr.ee o 'Uut giadually acquiring a Conviction that I h¡¡¡]d IL, ji). For nearly half- an-hoUr I persevered wit1¡rnt ranilt, though I threw the utmost of iuy will into my efforts. At last, just, a? I ww *ig to lose hope, I fancied tint I ppl.ceiv -,I, 7 i [iuver of the eye- lids. I thereupon redo "i ay cTorts, and after a few minrites more, d.u i v. hi -h I had been making passes with al:ror; fntii; in energy, the dead eyes slowly opened and looked at me. As long as "I live I shall never ferret that moment. I experienced no sense of horror or alarm, but a conscientious scruple crossed mv mind as to whether I had any right to carry my experiment farther, and, after a moment's pause, I began the reverse, or de-magnetising, passes. As I did so, how- ever, the expression of the face changed to one of agonised reproach, and I could not resist the impression that, for some reason OT other, the head wished me to continue. Thus encouraged, I resumed the mesmerising process, and the face after a few moments recovered its former com- paratively tranquil expression. As I proceeded, the eyes moved with greater freedom, and the features became more mobile. The expression of the face seemed to vary, but I could not read its meaning. Suddenly the conviction flashed upon me (how I cannot say, but as, if borne in upon me by some sympathetic sense) that the head was trying to speak, but cordd make no sound. Do you wish to speak ?" I said. The head gazed at me with appealing eyes, but was silent, I remem- bered Valpeaus experiment "If you' understand what I say, close your eyes. The eyes closed instantly, then opened again with the old appeal- ing gaze. If you desire tospeak, close your eyes again." Again they closed. Can I help you ? The eyes closed once more, and then, slowly, as if With effort, looked away from me towards a table in another part of the room. I followed their direction, but could not see anything to indicate what was desired. The table in question was strewn with surgical and other apparatus. I walked towards it, the eyes following me. Is it something on this table you want me to use?" The eyes closed and again opened. After a moments reflection, I saidt "I will touch every object on this table in succession. When I come to the right one, close your eyes." The eyes closed in token of comprehension, then opened again with an eager look. I took up one article after another ana laid it down and laid it down again, but the head made no sign. I had touched nearly every object on the table, and I began to fear that there was a misunderstanding on the one side or the other; when I chanced to place my hand on some electrical apparatus, with whieh I had been experimenting earlier in the day. To my surprise the eyes closed. Ah, the microphone I exclaimed. Yds, that may assist. But how to nse it ?" I removed the apparatus to the table Whereon the head lay. K Am I right so far?" I asked. The eyes closed. '^Direct me I said when I am doing right, close your eyes again." I applied the Wires of the battery to different parts of the head without receiv- ing the approving signal; but at last, on placing one side ih contact with the, hypoglossal nerve, and the other Under the tongue, the eyes nosed. I noticed, however, with dismay &å.t the head seemed to be losing its temporary VJtaljty, and relapsing into its former insensible condition, though the eyes still pursued me with that mute appealing gare, as though entreating succour. For a moment I was at a loss, but sud- denly I remembered that during my recent efforts to discover and carry out the wishes of the head I had suspended my mesmeric operations. I now resumed the passes, and was speedily rewarded by finding that the head shewed renewed signs of vitality. I persevered, and after a few minntes longer I perceived a slight movement of the lip Ma a voice said in a whisper so faint that, even with the aid of the microphone, it was all but laandible—• -tint ce glie tu m'as ottblU, Henri ?

TIm CHINESE CABINET.—The "Nui Koh," or Cabinet, consists of four principal and two inferior Bsmbers, half of them Manchus and half Chinese. According to the Imperial statutes their duties are to "deliberate on the government of theempire,;procIaim abroad the Imperial pleasure, regulate the canons of State, together with the whole administration of the great balance of power, thus aiding the Emperor in directing the affairs of State." Subordinate to the six "Chancellors" are six grades of officers, in all 200 Srsons, of whom more than half are Manchurian. The isncellors have also 10 assistants. A remarkable feature in this Cabinet" is that, as some of the i six Chancellors and assistants are constantly absent! Is the provinces or colonies, their places ilresupplied by substitutes.
