(Welsh Amateur Cup-Replayed Final Tie) The re-play in the above competition took place at Welshpool, in boisterous weather before a good attendance. Evans kicked off against the wind. Portmadoc got going, and Lewis had to save from Vaughan, who sent in a splendid shot from long range. A free-kick put Portmadoc in a good position. From a cross pass by Davison, Evans forced a corner. Later on in the game Davison scored from a penalty for Buckley. Before the interval Vaughan equalised. The second half of the game favoured Buckley, who scored 2 more goals before the call ot time. Final result: Buckley, 3 goals Portmadoc, i. THE DRUIDS AT RHYL. This game brought the football season to a close at Rhyl as far as home fixtures are concerned, and the result was most disappointing from a Rhylites point of view, and the two points might be said to be a gift to the Ancient Britons. Though the visitors scored once in each half, the shots that did the trick ought never to have scored. T M Jones misjudged the first, and the same player was on the half- way line when the second came. Rhyl as a team played their antagonists to a stand- still, Vernon Jones, Ogilvy and H Lapin, were the pick. The feature of the game was the fine exhibition of goalkeeping by the Druids custodian-some of his saves being nothing short of marvellous, and to him to a great extent belongs the honour of having carried his team to victory. lo Only Earned 6d. a Day. 1 A Town Porter's Plea. L I A town porter was before the Judge at the Rhyl County Court on Friday, on a judgement summons, and in reply to the Judge as to why he did not pay what he owed, he said he did not earn much, some days he only received 6d and other days nothing at all. The Judge But there is a good time coming now you know. ] Defendant Yes, but I am talking now < of the hard times that have gone (Laughter.) The Judge quite so, but I have to deal I with the future. You must try and keep < up instalments during the good time. Rhyl Coach Bpiider Sued Concerning a Bill of Exchange. At the Rhyl County Court on Friday, Mr Gamlin referred to the case of Thomas Robert Williams, coach builder, Rhyl versus Robert Foulkes, carriage proprietor, Colwyn Bay. He said the defendant was sued on a bill of exchange, but he (Mr Gamlin) had only a few days before received the papers and found that defendant had a counter- claim for C8 i is 6d it being alleged that plaintiff had not carried out work for which he had claimed and in respect of which defendant gave a bill of exchange Plaintiff had repaired a landau but declined to let defendant have it unless he gave a months bill for £ 25. It was sometime afterwards that defendant was informed by an expert that the work charged for had not been executed and he naturally declined to pay. He asked that he should be allowed to put in counter claim although he was not able to give the proper notice. Mr Neville Williams for plaintiff strongly opposed the application and said it was only an attempt to get the bill renewed whereas plaintiff had already renewed it once. He submitted thatt plaintiff was entitled to judgement on the bill. His Honour said that was so but he did not see why he should not enter judgement for plaintiff, by staying execution so that a cross action might be brought. Mr Neville Williams asked that the money be paid into court. His Honour: Do you question the ability of defendant to' meet the claim ? Mr Neville Williams Well, the bill has had to be renewed. If he had the money why did he not pay it instead of renewing it ? His Honour You are only on one side of the case, and I am on both. I have to ict fairly between you I shall give judgement with costs and execution the matter stand over till next court. II01! THE RETORT CAUSTIC. Cy Sulloway, the tail New Hampshire Con- gress.man, was visiting a friend who was making extensive improvements -on his estate in Dovery when the following incident occurred: There was a scarcity of sand and loam, which wus ueeded to fill in an excavation, and his host asked the Congre^srran "What shall I use to fill that hole?" "Oh, if you haven't the dirt, fill in with some of these diggers, and cover them deep," an- swered Cy- Yis," spoke up one of the diggers, "aJl begorra, nixt election time ye'U be 'round dig- gin' us up.Bostoil lie raid. WISE WORDS OF JOSH WISE Whut's th' use uv usin' a isteam i,nmea t' drive a carpet tack?" A wise man changes his mind once in a while, but a fool is liable t' change it ev'ry minute. Red aud blue ribbons never hid grey hairs. A man with i-oor foresight ain't goin' t' have; any too good hindsight. REAL CAUSE FOR WORRY. Yes. I am concerned about myself. You see, of late I have got into the habit, if one may term it, of talking in my sleep," said the man who had been waiting to see the doctor. "Ah. yes!" said the doctor. "And you want to stop it in some way? Really, it is not a cause for worry. I should give it 110 attention if I were you." "But it bothers me a great deal." Tut, tut. You needn't feel any alarm oveu talking in your sleep." "But I am afraid my wife listens in her sleep. -Sti-ay Stories. THE HEN. Alas! my child, where is the pen That can do justice to the hen? Like loyalty, she goes her way, Laying foundations every day. Though not for public buildings, yet For custard, cake, and omelet, Or, if too old for such a use, They have their fling at some abuse* As when to censure plays unfit j Upon the stage they make a hit; '1 Or at elections seal the fate Of an obnoxious candidate. No wonder, child, we prize the hen; Whose egg is mightier than the pen. ■—The GuilderM POOR MAX. Mrs. Lectoor: "Do you know that you talk irr your sleep?" Lectoor: "Well, it's the only, chance I get." CAUSE FOR ALARM. The late Dr. Boardman, of Philadelphia, used to relate this on himself: "I preached a funeral sermon at one time, and spoke on the resurrec- tion. I am sure I spoke longer than was my, custom. The undertaker was a man of nervous tem- perament, and as the afternoon was going he be- gan to be anxious to be on the way to the ceme- tery. He finally whispered to one of the mem- bers Does your minister always preach as long as that at a funeral?" Well,' said the brother, 'that is a good ser- mon.' Yes.' said the undertaker. the sermon is all right, and I believe in the resurrection, but I'm afraid if he does not stop pretty soon I will not get this man buried in time.' "-Philadclphiis Ledger. HAIR RAISING. Husband: "I feel in the mood for reading! something sensational and startling—something that will fairly make my hair stand on end." Wife: Well, here is my last dresamaker'g bill."— Washington Life. WORLDLY THOUGHTS. Really to enter into tho fulness of To-morrow,, one must use the key of Yesterday. The milk of human kindness is never morq diluted than when gossips are at the pump.. The worm is not to be blamed for turning, especially when a girl tries to bait a hook with "Fir;.t, thoughts are best," says Conscience., "Last thoughts are best," says Prudence. Both are right. The source of cynicism is eithcr_ the liver Or the heart, according as the cynic is a he or n the. It mav take two to make a quarrel, but many a. row has been begun solely because one "friend" played "promoter." Modern progress can accomplish most things, but it never will be able to substitute an eleva- tor for the ladder of fame.—LippincotVs Mago- zinc. HARD LUCK. W prominent Brooklyn ite was cautiously walk- ing along Fulton-street trying to prevent himself from slipping on the snow-covered sidewalks. He stepped on the snow that was on some brass lettering on the sidewalk. He lost his balance and fell. That's what I get for trying to prevent my- self from falling," he ejaculated in angry tones. If I hadn't been so careful I suppose I would never have slipped. Cuss the luck anyway/' be concluded, as he brushed the now off hia clothes, meanwhile cursing like a pirate. Ho had walked only a few more yards when he slipped and fell again. 41 What do you think of that? lie said. I can't stand on my feet. Why on earth didn t I wait until I fell this time and then curse enough lor both falls?"
