_— I THE ANNUAL HORSE SHOW ■ AT ABERGELE. ■ SUCCESSFUL EXHIBITS. Notwithstanding many counter attractions in the neighbourhood on Monday last, the ■ annual horse show at Abergele proved to be one of the most successful yet held. This year, as in previous years, the exhibits were arranged in the Bee field. The first six shows were financially unsuccessful, and the seventh, held last year, was promoted in face of a deficit of JB70. By means of improved man- ■ agement and owing to the excellent support given by the local farmers and others it achieved a great success, so that L50 of the deficit was paid off. Monday's show, the eighth, fortunately fell on a brilliantly sunny ■ clay, and it secured an entry above the average per class; the attendance of the public was large, and the balance of income over ex- penses is pretty sure to enable the remainder of the deficit to be extinguished, as well as to leave the committee with a small dalance in hand. Mr. Robert Williams-Wynn, of Cefn, the president for the year, was present in the ring during part of the judging, and Messs. J. E. Mellor (Tanybryn) and W. Conwy Bell (Rhuddlan), the vice-presidents, were also present. Mr. D. Williams (of Ty Mawr) was the chairman of the committee for the year, H and Mr. D. Thomas the secretary. Messrs. J. D. Jones (Bodoryn) and D. Williams offici- ■ ated as showyard inspectors, the directors ■ being Messrs. T. Evans (Tanydderwen), J. ■ Fierce, and W. A. Jones. Heavy horses were judged by Mr. NN-. Jones (Chwilog) and Mr. i'eter Davies (Warburton, and light horses by H Messrs. J. T. Oliver (Llanwnda), and T. E. H Morrel (Rotherham). ■ Some of the weaker classes in the light horse ■ action of the last show were dropped, and ■ the result was that all the classes were well filled. The entire horse class was not very strong, owing to some of the animals which had been entered being absent through being ■ out of condition. Brood mares and and three ■ year old youngsters were in general excellent ■ animals, showing that farmers, of all grades are prrfitting by the example set in recent years by the more prominent exhibitors and ■ breeders, and that they have at last realised ■ the necessity of breeding from good stock on ■ both sides. The judging was a slow and ■ tedious process to the spectators, though, of I course, the painstaking and thorough charac- ■ ter of the inspections and trials upon which ■ the judges based their decisions could but win ■ for them the confidence of the exhibitors.

NEWMARKET CHAIR EISTEDDFOD. A SUCCESSFUL GATHERING. This Eisteddfod was held on Bank Holiday in a marquee to seat 1,500 people, on a field belonging to the Ochr-y-Gop farm. The first meeting commenced at 12-30, and long before this there was a tremendous influx of visitors into the village, and at the opening of the afternoon meeting the marquee was well filled. This institution is becoming immensely popular, as will be seen by the list of its patrons: Messrs. Novello and Co., Ltd., London, £2 2s.; Rev E Pierce, is John Williams, Esq., Rosslyn, £1 ts. D.

The afternoon meeting opened w.th a selection by the band, followed by the usual bardic addresses, after which came the president's address. Mr. Ralli who was enthusiastically received said I have always taken and continue to take a sincere interest in the Eisteddfod because I think it tends to inspire the people with such a true and earnest love of music. It is said that the love of poetry and of music is inborn in nations inhabiting mountainous countries, there is few countries where the scenery is more beautiful than amid the hills and dales of onr Welsh homes; there are none where the love of poetry, and of music is more universal, none where these are more natural and genuine. Eisteddfodau have been, and are very useful in developing and organising our local musical talents, so I hope we shall be able to hold one annually at Newmarket. The following is a list of the awards: Starching and ironing of gentleman's white shirt, Miss Jones, Shop Newydd.

Four entries were received in this competition, the subject of the poem being Ncturiaethwr," prize, £1 is. and a carved oak chair. The happy man turned out to be "Y Gragen Wen" (Mr. Caerwyn Roberts, Liverpool), who has previously won six cisteddfodic chairs. The trumpet was sounded and the successful bard was escorted to the platform by two others the eisteddfod Band playing See the conquering hero comes Addresses to the chair were given by Glynfardd, John Roberts (Gwaenys- gor), Penllyn and Penfro.

KIPLIXG ON SHOOTING. lr. Kudy.ivd Kipling on Saturday opened at Lower Sydenham a covered lifle range. He said the over- whelming bulk of our population were being brought lip in ;¡1};o1-.1to ignorance of the use of firearms. That was a little weakness which Wt must do our best to remady. They should bucklo down to the study of the rifla and the rudiments of drill.

The Master reported that the number 1 f paupers in the House ,S 103, as compar-d with 130 for the corn. nding period of last year. The number of 0:ants relieved duriig the fortnight was 76, < compared with, ihe same number in the corresponding week -A last year. On the 28th ult. Mrs. Campbell, Plas Heaton, Trefnant, visited the House and brought with her tea and sugar for the aged and infirm women, and sweets for the child- ren. The Master also reported the receipt of a quantity cf flower plants from Mrs. Lux- lTLdore, Bryn Asaph, who also on Thursday visited the House, and brought with her tes, sugar, and cakes for the aged and infirm women, tobacco for the men, and sweets for the children.

The Visiting Committee reported having considered the suggestion made by the Locai Government Board to appoint a male officer to look after boys in the Workhouse. Th? committee were of opinion that the matter should stand over for the present, until bett. accommodation was provided. ARCHITECT'S CHARGES. The Finance Committee reported having con- sidered an account from Mr. James Hughe;, architect, Denbigh, amounting to J381 lis. 3d. £25 had been paid on account, and there wa; a balance of £56 lis. 2d. owing. Mr. Hughc accepted the sum of JB50 in settlement. Wuh regard to his charges for plans for the new buildings, he agreed to take five per cent. en the outlay, provided the attendances were nominal, and JB50 for drawing out tht quan- tities. The committee recommended the ac- ceptance of these terms. Upon the proposition of Mr. G. F. Gunner, seconded by Mr. J. Pierce, the committee' recommendations were agreed to. DECREASE OF PAUPERISM IX THE UNION. The Chairman drtw attention to the report of the Statistical Inspector with reference to pauperism. The report was a comparative one with the condition of things ten years ago. In that Union they had first of all to con- gratulate themselves on the fact that tht po. pulation had increased by about 3,000 during the last ten years and that the rateable value had increased about £32,000. Notwithstand- ing the increase in the population, the number of paupers per head of the population had gone down from 4.5 to 3.1. Ten years age the outdoor paupers numbered 1,175; now they onlv numbered 855, a reduction of 320. The amount of outdoor relief in 1893 was £6,406; in 1902 it was £5,856, a reduc- tion of JB550. The cost of paupers per head' of the population had gone down 5s. 2fd. in 1892 to 4s. 7d., a reduction of 7id. They had im- proved their position on the list prepared by Mr. Bircham. Ten years ago they were num- ber 44; now they'were 34, so that they had gone up ten. Mr. J. Pierce: The barometer is going up in the right direction. Mr. T. P. Hughes: Are there less indoor paupers ? The Clerk The indoor paupers have slight- ly increased. They have gone p from 112 to 114. The Chairman said they had been a littls more rigid in applying the Workhouse test. They had been relieving the deserving pooir more liberally than they did before, and he thought they might say that the Guardians generally exercised greater discretion in dis- tinguishing between the deserving poor and the undeserving poor. They were giving more mcnev per head to those whom they really considered deserved it. That was the proper policy to pursue. Poverty was not 3 crime, and those who had arrived at old age, and who had worked all the years for very low wages, out of which it was impossible to save, were entitled to be relieved to the fullest ex- tent consistently with the interests of the ratepayers. On the other hand, they must be very careful not to relieve those who were not deserving, and thereby encourage habits of laziness and improvidence. The only respect in-which they did not figure well in the com- parative statement was in regard to deserted wives. They had more deserted wives in that Union than other Unions had. It was per- haps because they were more kind-hearted. When a woman came there, and told them that her husband had left her, their sympath- ies were touched, and they relieved her. He did not think that was a bad fault. It may not strictly be the right thing, but they knew that there were many women who were very badly dealt with in that way. He suggested that the return should be referred to the Visi- ting Committee. Mr. T. Howes Roberts thought the Chairman had not left anything for the Visiting Com- mittee to do. He was sure they were aJI very much obliged to the Chairman for giving them the information which he had. It was a. subject for much congratulation that that Union stood so well on the list (hear, hear). A BURIAL BILL REPUDIATED. Mr. T. J. Scott, one of the overseers for Prestatyn, sent in a bill of the expenses n- curred in the burial of Elizabeth Smith, late cook at the Railway Hotel, who1 was destitute and whose burial in consequence was ordered by the overseers. The bill was for JB1 17s. 6d. for coffin, j31 Is. to the Vicar, the items being 10s. 6d. for the grave, sexton 5s., and 5s. in lieu of offering, and also 5s. to woman for lay ing out the body. The Clerk advised that the overseers had no right to place the Union to an expense of this kind, and advised that the bill should be referred back to the overseers for payment out of their own account. This course was agreed tú. AN EXTRAORINARY LETTER. The Chairman read the following letter which he had received:—'I, Hugh Pierce, for. merly of Ty'n-y-Coed, Cefn Meiriadog, desire you to read this letter before the Board to ask for 5s. weekly. I shall be busy with the hay This is brief from Hugh Pierce, son of Ann and W. Pierce, late of Ty'nyCoed, Cefn Meir- iadcg. The reading of the letter, which was laid on the table, caused much laughter. A SKELETON IN A BED. A ghastly discovery has been made at Gateshead. The residents of Charles-square had, missed sinca the New Year a widow named Mary Price, of between seventy and eighty years of age. who waf believed to be staying with relatives in Newcastle. 011 Thursday last week a neighbour, noticing a peculiar stench about the house, entered the old woman's room, lifted the covering of the bed, and saw the horrible spectacle of a complete skeleton. She must have lain there for mouths.
ALLEGED THEFT OF JEWELS. Edmund George Dt prez, a. trooper of Paget's Horse, who until recently held a commission in the 4th Dragoon Guanl, has been charged, on remand, at Maidenhead, with stealing jewels, valued at £135, belonging to Miss Evie Greene, the actress. —The evidence was that the accusi d, who had a slight acquaintance with the prosecutrix, called at her house at Maidenhead, saying that he wished to say good-bye as lie was i.>oing to Ireland. The prosecutrix having to fulfil her engagement in London, left the accused at the house witii some friends. He was invited to a launch party, but declined, and it was stated took the jewels in the absence of the party.—The accused, on whom the jewels were alleged to have b en found, pleaded guilty, and his solicitors asked that he might be dealt with under the Fust Offenders' Act.—The bench committed him for trial. -a
.1 RHYL'S AMUSEMENTS. THE QUEEN'S PAT-ACE. The artistes1 who are appearing with so much success at the Queen's Palace this week will next week be supplemented by Prim. avessi, the great juggle,r and Miss Jennie An. drews, comedienne. The dancing has proved remarkably popular, and is enjoyed by all sections and classes of people. The side shows such as the Roof Gardens, and the var- ious other attractions are items in a pro- gramme of great attractiveness and variety. THE TOWN HALL. Last Monday and Tuesday, Message from was staged at the Town Hall by an excellent company, the part of Horace Parkes being in exceptionally good hands. On Wed- nesday, the ever sparkling Belle of New York; appeared, and there was a crowded au- dience who had the satisfction of listening to a delightful performance. Messrs. Baring Bros., who have taken the Town Hall, have made attractive bookings for a season of six weeks. Next week 'Sherlock Holmes' will appear. Sherlpck Holmes' is a sort of melo. drama without any murdering cr shooting business to upset the nerves of the super- sensitive. It is yet a play of enthralling in- terest throughout, whilst the tension is relieved by just enough humour. The company that will represent it in Rhyl has been carefully selected, and no expense has been spared in order to stage it in a thoroughly efficient manner. THE MERRIE MEN. Mr. E. H. Williams and his Morris Men I have every reason to be satisfied with the favour with which their performances have been received by the large number of visitors to Rhyl. Record crowds have assembled around The Hippodrome," as the pitch is now termed. It ha. now assumed the form and ihape of a vast natural amphitheatre, and the sight of the many thousands who have gathered there each night this week has been a truly remarkable one. The Merrie Men are appearing in a budget of fresh songs and fresh jokes this week, and Mr. J. G. Williams, the champion high jumper, hds been performing his jumping feats to the appreciation of the assembled spectators. Mr. Williams is also making special provision for next week. His song-books are now published, and are as usual meeting with a ready sale. THE ROYAL AUSTRIAN BAXD. The splendid programmes sustained by the Royal Austrian Band in their promenade con- certs this week have deservedly met with the approbation of all lovers of good music. Large audiences have assembled at each con- cert, and the seats have been well taken up" PIERROTS. Crowded houses have been the rule at the Pierrot entertainments on the Pier, and the efforts of the artistes have been of the most enlertaining character. Mr. Geo. Penn's Happy Valley Pierrots have also contributed by their performances to the amusement of the public.
ST. ASAPH (DENBIGH) RURAL DISTRICT COUNCIL. MONTHLY MEETING.

It was decided to instruct the Medical Officer to forward a report with regard to Trefnant as required. ROAD WIDENING. A letter was read from the Llanefydd Parish Council enclosing a letter from Mr. W. D. W Griffiths, who wrote stating that he had no objection to the proposal to widen the road between Ty Gwyn and the turning towards Merllyn in Llanefydd parish, so long as the Council undertook to fence his land adjoining the road. and to compensate the tenant of the land for any damage or loss. He also explained that as the land at that point was much higher than the road. the widening scheme would be a rather expensive matter seeing that the land would require a training wall for the whole length. The Council decided not to discuss the matter owing to the absence of the members for Llanefydd, whom it was decided should be furnished with a copy of the iettei. A com- mittee was appointed to meet the Surveyor on the spot and to prepare a report in connection with the proposed improvement. DAWN BRIDGE. Tenders for erecting bridges at Dawn and Melin-y-Person.

PHYSICAL TRAINING IN THE NAVY The very fine results achieved by the system of physical training used in the army has led to its being adopted by the Admiralty, a special class for the instruction of petty oflicers and seamen having formed at the army headquarters' trvmiiasiuni at Aldershot to teach the system to selected men, who will in turn become qualified instructors to the Royal Navy. A class of thirty-six has been form* d t-> undergo a course of instruction that will last till the end of the year. Those composing it have been drawn lroin Portsmouth, and it is expected that further classes will be formed from time to time to augment the staff of qualuied instructors to the navy as occasion arises. Several naval and marine oflicers arc also under instruction with the same o'jj-ct.

Ellis, Joseph Edwards, Bedford Street, was charged with stealing a quantity of calico from the Queen's Palace, the property of the Rhyl Property Company. Mr. F. J. Gamlin defended.—Mr. H. E. Doughty, solicitor, Manchester, said that the prisoner had been employed as a labourer at the Queen's Palace. He identified the can- vass now produced, which measured about 14 yards, and valued at 5d. per yard. He or- dered the defendant on Sunday to take the canvass out of the ballroom into the Arcade, and he did so. He had found the prisoner a very hard-working man.—Cross-examined by Mr. Gamlin: He had no desire to press the charge.—Mr. C. J. Richardson said that they had had a suspicion that this sort of work was going on for some time, and though they did not wish to press the charge, they wanted an Example made of the defendant. At the Police Station defendant asked him not to say any- thing.—Cross-examined: He had not had oc- casion TO suspect prisoner before.—Sergeant Mc Walter deposed to seeing the defendant coming from the Arcade carrying a bundle. He followed him into Bedford Street, and there stopped him. He asked him what it was lie was carrying home with him, and asked him how he had got the bundle produced, and he replied, I have been working at the Arcade, and they are clearing out, so I took J it frpm there." He asked if anybody had f given him authority to do so, and he replied, Xo. nobody has.' Witness took possession of the canvass, and defendant begged of him not to say anything about it. He sent for Mr. Richardson, and he subsequently charged defendant with the theft, and he admitted taking the canvass.—Mr. F. J. Gamlin, on behalf of the defendant, pleaded not guilty, and pointed out accoraing to the evidence that there was no felonious intent. Defendant thought when he was told to clear the canvass that it was of no value, having been used for the purpose of protecting the carpets. Were it not for the fact that defendant had been previously convicted for larceny he did not think the charge would have been pressed against him. But the last of these happened eleven years ago, and the other when defen- dant was 11 years of age. Defendant was the sole support of his mother, who was 74 years of age, as well as his crippled sister.—Defen- dant was fined 5s. and 18s. costs.—John Wat- son, labourer, late cf Bolton, but no of no fixed place of abode, was charged with va- grancy. The case was proved by P.C. Ed. Roberts. After being taken to the Police Sta- tion prisoner was very- violent and cursing. Prisoner was sentenced to 14 days' imprison- ment.—On Wednesday, before Mr. J. H. Elrs and Mr. H. A. Tilby, William Have, brick. layer, Leeds, formerly of 14, Queen Street, Rhyl. was charged by P.C. Ed. Roberts with being drunk and disorderly on Tuesday nighr. P.C. Roberts explained that defendant was on a holiday at Rhyl. Shortly after eleven o'clock on Tuesday night he received complaints of defendant's conduct. He fdund defendant drunk and disorderly in Queen Street. All the persuasion in the world would not induce him to go home. Defendant's mother, who was standing at her doorway, also en- deavoured to persuade the defendant to go home, but he refused. He got hold of P C. Y\ oodward by the throat and grazed' it, aDd also kicked witness in the arm. They got defendant into the Police Station with con- siderable trouble.—The Chairman said that the defendant was fortunate in not bei-g charged with assaulting the police. This bei' g his first offence, he was fined 5s. and 6s. costs. HISCOT v.

AUSTRALIA WEEK BY WEEK. (FROM Oui; OWN CORIiESPOXDEXT.) SYDNEY, July, 1st. DOGS AND FOXKS. The plague of foxes is rapidly increasing in the lorthern districts of New South Wales, where the uumals have committed great depredations among -he sheep. They are remarkably wafy, and it is ldlicult to trap them. Large numbers have been soot, 'but they appear as plentiful as ever. The flocks have also found an enemy in tame doys which ,-oiiie from the neighbouring townships, and are oriven to kill the sheep, owing to the scarcity of ood, as meat has become so dear as to be piolubi- i ive for feeding dogs upon. llaits are laid in all directions, but these do not have the desired effect, and in several instances from twelve to twenty -heep have been destroyed in one night. The tame animals hav>e been caught in the act, and several of them shot; but, fortunately for the dugs' owners, they cannot be identified, and settlers have no redress. This is one of the results of the long- continued drought, which, during the last three or tour years, has reduced the number of sheep in New S >uth Wales from seventy millions to forty millions, and threatened the State with an additional loss of twenty millions during the present year. The fox was origillally introduced into Australia for hunt- ing purposes, but, like the hare and rabbit, he has multiplied so rapidly and developed his carnivorous tastes so strongly that he now takes rank as a national pest, to be exterminated—a somewhat remote possibility, at any cost. THE TRAINING OF ACIROTIATS. A strange sto'y is current in Sydney. Hocontlv a troupe of clever acrobats arrived in the city, and gave a series of remarkably daring performances, especially on the part of a youth,one of w hose feats wo* regarded as aimost superhuman. lut a few days later the lad was missing and could not Vie found. He had run away and was not heard of until he turned up under somewhat, unexpected eircum- s ances, having found his way in the direction of the lighthouse at the entrance to Sydney Harbour. Here he knocked at the door of one of the houses. In answer one of the ladies of the house went to the door, and as soon as it was opened the little lellow, without waiting to explain anything, piteously appealed to be taken inside, "as he hud been kicked by the man at the playhouse." "I daren't go back," he cried several times, as if afraid that his appeal might be disregarded. So genuine appeared his distres that there was no refusing his appeal, and lie was taken into the house and made as comfortable as possible by his hostesses, who throughout treated the unhappy lad with the utmost consideration. Gradually he unfolded the story of his sufferings, and also shewed his auditors his bruised body and limbs. conclusively proving that lie had been treated quite recently in a most shameful manner. Accord- ing to the boy's statement, which was given in a straightforward, simple way to the good people who befriended him, he had been the victim of frightful, long-continued and almost unspeakable torment. lie said he was a native of Florence, where he lived with his sister and mother, who were extremely poor. As a child he sold newspapers. One day a gentleman came to his mother and told her he would make a man of him. He would buy him boots and clothes and teach him a grand profession. Ilis mother did not want him to go, the: gh they were very poor; but, then, their good benefactor would make him "a gentleman." That settled it. The little lad threw away his papers to become an acrobat. While in Italy lie was well enough treated, but when lie got into other countries of Contim ntal Europe the rough usage began. Beatings and bang- ing, bumps and bruises were every day his exi eri- ence. In Dresden his brutal master broke his nose. Afterwards, when the troupe went to America, the same cruelties were continued: but why ] roceed with these details. The whole story of the lad was one iong narrative of cruelty and cudgelling, his body being indelibly marked with old scars as the result of the alleged brutality of the man who took theunhajpy youngster away from his mother to make him "a gentleman." The boy was made comfortable for the ni'„ht, and during his short stay there became a prime favourite with the household. On the day foJJowing tile lad was taken away to a safe asylum. Two doctors examined his injuries, and the ] olice were communicated with, the alfeer stationed near the place carefully attending to all the matters in con- nection with the boy's removal. The next stage will probably be a Sydney police-court. In the meantime the case has aided in directing increased attention to John Strange Winter's Iloup-La," to certain portions of which the lad's story bears a striking resemblance. CHAMPAGNE FOR THE UNE.VPLOYKD. For once the good-nature of the Marquess of Hopetoun, Goverror-G» neral of Australia, got the b; 11 er of his judgment. In view of his early di j arture and the King's Coronation, Lie made agiit ot LICO and three hundred botth s of cliamjngne tc the needy unemployed of Melbourne. The dis- tribution was unwisely entrusted to a leader of the um mploved, who keeps a bootshop in Melbourne, and whose exertions in the inteiests of the unem- ployed had won the sympathy of the Governor- Gi neral. On the lirst day tiit, proceedings were d eorous. On the second the scene was discredit- able. Loafers and drunkards swarmed up to the door crying out for a dole of beer (a brewery having sent six barrels), and after two hours the crowd became so noisy and drunken that. the police" ste| ped in and advised that the distribution be shipped. Proceedings were suspended for an hour. Altogether one hundred and twelve bottles of champagne were given away. Many of the bottles were sold by the selected recipients, the rulillg prices to publicans being 5s. and one long beer, but many went to provide a spree for small knots of men and women. Finally, when an enterprising photographer was crushed through the distributor's shop window, apl aratus and all, the proceedings were alruptly stopped. AN AUSTRALIAN POET. To few residents outside the Commonwealth will the name of James Brunton Stephens be familiar; but throughout the federated states it was known as that of a graceful and, at times, vigorous versifier. Although Scottish by birth, his long residence in Australia had caused him to become generally regarded as a son of the southern land of gold and wool, and he certainly felt himself every inch an Australian. His recent death, at the age of sixty-seven, is regarded as a loss to Australian literature, and leaves a gap not easily filled. He was a native of llarrowstowness, Linlithgowshire, where he was born in 1835. He was educated at Edinburgh College, earning his fees by night teach- ing, and did some literary work before arriving in Queensland in 1866. After settling in the State he was engaged as a private tutor for some time. and then joined the Queensland Education Department, becoming liead teacher of tle Ashgroye State School. Through the good offices of Miss Kennedy, daughter of the State Governor of that name. who took a great interest in his literary work,he received an appointment under Sir Thomas M'llwrnith's Ministry in the Queensland Ilomo Secretary's Department- as correspondence clerk, which entailed the writing of all cllicial despatches. He held this appointment until the cleatl. of Mr. Dutton, when he received the appointment of Lnder-Secretary in the Queensland Chief Secretary's Department, which position lie held to the time of iiis death. He was at his office till late in the afternoon of the day preceding his death. He took ill on the following- night, and died before his medical attendant 1'f'I)H;¡] hi", Hi" "1 "'r.rl" 'A.A. t,.a.IJ.Jvlj-u".J. nVln were "Convict Once" and "The Uodolphin Arabian."

He also wrote a novelette, entitled "A Hundred Pounds." Mr. Stephens leaves a widow, four daughters, and one son, who is in South Africa.
