TWO OF THE G.O.M. S BODYGUARDS. The Liverpool Weekly Post states through the retirement of Sergeant Edward Jones of Mold the Flintshire Constabulary on Monday last lost one of its most respected and best known members A native of Denbighshire Mr Jones joined the police force in January, 1877 and therefore 'he has just served thirty-three years seventeen of which were spent at Prestatyn and the remainder at the head- quarters of the county Mold in both of which towns Sergeant Jones, by strict attention to duty, and his never failing tact and integrity, gained the respect of the public and the confidence of his superior officers. During the stirring period of the Home Rule debate he was one of the officers specially selected for the onerous and important duty of protecting the late G.O.M. and he possesses a fund of interes- ting anecdotes reminiscent of the experiences of the police in those days. Only one of Gladstones's body guard" now remains in the constabulary, viz. Inspector Pearson, of Rhyl, Sergeant Jones possesses the true detective instinct for solving and elucidating mysterious crimes and on several occasions being the re- cipient of magisterial commenda- tion for meritorious services. He terminates his long and honourable connection with the Flintshire Police Force with the best wishes of his many friends at Prestatyn and Mold, who trust that he will soon recover his health and long be spared to enjoy the pension he Z, has so well earned.

Rbyl Bid Adieu to the Welsb Trophy. Chester were eminently successful at Belle Vue Ground on Saturday, scoring six goals to two-the biggest score they have ever piled up against the locals on their own midden. It was a curious game, due in a large measure to the climatic conditions. A strong wind was blowing which played all manner of prancs with the ball. The homesters had the advan' tage of this in the opening half, and although they had much more of the game than their antagonists they failed to seize their oppor- tunities with the result that when half-time arrived they were only one goal ahead when they might have been four at least. At any rate they restarted in good style, and for fully fifteen minutes they were the best team, giving t the Chester defence no end of trouble. A long shot^from Graham which entered the net through Smith's legs altered the aspect of the game; and Khyl never looked up. The Cestrians did almost all the attacking and shot with accuracy and power and in the end were victorious by six goals to two. Perhaps the most noticeable and certainly the most effec- tive and polished player was the old Rhylite- W Matthews. His work was the work of a master, and the ease with which held the left wing in check stamps him as a great player The Chester backs were also good, and the goalkeeper, who was making his debut with them, gave a capital exhibition. The forwards were all good, with Graham perhaps the pick Lipsham, however, despite the close attention paid him by W Williams, got in several good shots. On Rhyl's side Smith made one or two costly mistakes, aud this fact upset him for he was never safe after the second goal was scored. Nito Roberts was the best of the backs, and played well in the closing half. Carter was good with his head, but he is not my idea of a full back. A Roberts was good and bad by turn, and Gal Morris has certainly played better. Hampson was good when he bad the chance, but those were few. Bertie Jones and Norman were overshadowed by Matthews- Frost was not so successful as usual. D Hugbes was in fair form. T Hsrri- son was sorely missed, and Rhyl were defeated by a better team on the day's play. « » a Brymbo Defeated at Home. Owing to the Weleb Cup Competition only! wo Combination matches were played on Saturday. Horace Blew again turned out for Brymbo, the new Club, who, however, were beaten 2-0 at home by Middlewich. The homesters were weakly represented owing to the club having also a cup-tie on.—Saltney overcame Oswestry by 3-1. In the cup-tie a big crowd saw the Druids oust their old rivals, Chirk by 4-0. [°!

Sir Herbert Roberts and Welsh Farmers. Sir J Herbert Roberts and Mr William Jones, Liberal candidates for West Den- bighshire and Arfon divisions respectively, addressed the farmers attending the Llan- rwst market on Tuesday from the Town Hall steps. The large square was crowded, and the greatest enthusasm was manifested. Mr 0 Isgoed Jones presided. Sir Herbert Roberts said that he had represented the division of West Denbigh- shire foi 18 years, and he felt confident that his connection with them would not be severed now, when the people were fighting for very freedom (Applause). The land question would remain unsettled unless the Government were returned to power; the farmers' only hope was in Liberalism (Cheers). Mr William Jones said they were met to fight the battle of freedom (Cheers). Who was to govern—the people or the Lords ? (Cries ot 41 The people"). Mr Lloyd George (Cheers) has driven the Lords into a corner from which they could not escape, and they were now shrieking to the people —their bistosical dupes—to save them from annhilation (L-aughter)- but the people had at last found their op- portunity, and would level these obstruc- tions to the progress of the nation from the pinnacle they had far too long usurped ( Applause). The Liberals during the last four years had done more for the farmers than the Tories have managed to perform for them in ten years (Cheers). Now farmers if they failed to prevail upon the landlords to carry out necessary repairs on their farms could do it themselves and be compensated for it on leaving (Cheers). Lady Roberts appealed to the electors to take advanttge of their Privileges and vote not only for themselves but on behalf of their wives and children (Cheers). --0:0-

DEATH. WILLIAMS—On January 11th, John Weldon Williams, at his father's house (1'eterborough House), Rhyl. Aged 30 years, son of Mr and Mrs Joseph 'Williams.
Rhyl Pier Master's Brave Act On Monday at the Council Chamber, prior to the opening of the Counc;l proceedings, the Chairman said he had a very pleasant function to perform in connection with the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. As they were aware the President of the local branch was Mr W J P Storey, who -very much regretted that he was unable to be present. Thanks to the efforts of Mr Storey, Mr W H Johnson (the hon. sec), and the members of the committee, the Rhyl branch was now able to secure the ser- vices of a resident officer, and while the sub- scriptions in 1908 were but L65, last year they had increased to JB145 (applause). He had been asked that afternoon to present to Mr W II Bennett, the Rhyl Piennaster, a framed certifi. es tefrom the Society, thanking him for having at 10 'clock on the night of September 16th risked his life to save a dog, which had fallen into the water from the pier, At the time it was very dark, and the. tide was running very high. Mr Bennett had gone over the pier, and after much difficulty saved the dog's life. He was pleased to be able to say that not only had Mr Hennett saved a dog's life, but some years ago he saved the Ifie of a bather at Rhyl, and for that he was specially commended by Admiral Sir Compton Dunville, Mr Bennett at that time being in the coastguard service. He, congratu- lated Mr Bennett on receiving the certificate and hoped that he would be spared for many years to look upon it with pride (applause.) Mr Bennett, in receiving the certificate, said that he hoped that he had done but what every other man in his position would have done—his duty ,hear, hear.) He thanked the Chairman for his kind remarks. r Johnson, on behalf of the Society, thanked the Chairman for making the presentation, and .also the members of the Council for having lent the Council Chamber for the making of the pre- sentation. He hoped that the handing of the certificate to Mr Bennett would be duly chron. icled in the Press. Mr Bennett saved about a dozen lives while In the Navy and Coastguard Service, but this 19 the first time his bravery has been publicly re- cognised. O

THE FLIXT AND DENBIGH HOrXDS Will Meet Tuesday, January 18th Coed Coch Saturday, January 22nd Plas Lchaf nr Abergele At 11 a.m. ¡ THE BABY% NAP. There are two or thiwe fine poiatm is two management of a baby that young mothers do not realise, bui the knowledge of them would an a great deal of trouble and be of advantage both to mother and child. When a baby is put down for its usual nap in the daytime, it sleepo for about so long and then gets reetlese. If one can lift th-e child very carefully, have someene I shake the pillows up and re-arrange them com- fortably, then lay fche little one down 0* the other side in an easy position, it is almost always the case that the nap will continue for an hour or so lonrer; but if the child is allowed to Beetle about, if it gets uncomfortable 'n its clothes, the piljows bother it, acd it will wake up as cross as tke proverbial young bear. If the I baby, awakens fretful and out of sorts, it it either III or hasn't had its nap out. There ie another thing that few people seem to realise, and that Is arranging the ebild's clothes with a view to ease and giving it plenty of aoont. We all know that if we lie down in the daytime ia our newal "wearing apparel, we will not sleep half as long 88 when our elothes are loosened. Indeed. nervous people sometimes find it impossible to so t<i sleep with the clothing in the ordinary fashion. It id a good idea to tkke the little one's shoes off, sometimes the stockings, and in cold weather to wrap a warm cloth around the feet. TTnpin the bands and untie the strings and let oLlI the garments be loose, then the baby, espe- cially a delicate or a nervous child, will sleep quleft as 1. at one WiSkes. Some metfemrB com- pletely undress the little one. putting on its Bight-clothe*, and they find it greatly to their adTalltage to do so. ♦ COOKERY RECIPES.

inn CHRISTOPHER PURNUB; Jf. IMPORTANT SPEECH ON OAPITAD AND LABOUR. Sir Christopher Furocea, M.P., nude Bpeedg t>f national importance at the meeting of sharer bolders ia Meesre. ICurnoes, Withy, and Co., Limited, at West Hartlepool on Saturday. He etated that the profits w-ere £8,760 more tham those of the previous year, which was then a re. cord for the company. In his judgment, Yiow- ever, the general commercial outlook was more unsatisfactory than it had been at any time since the formation of t h,- com- Eany. Indeed, throughout his business career he did not remember a time when the immediate prospects of profitable business were so unpromising. Their company had been fortunate in hubanding- its strength, not- withstanding which over a period of eight years the dividend had averaged 12 per cent.. and during the last ten years 1011 per cent. per au- tium. In dealing with th6 labour trouble. hG was not without hope that the men would come to realise while yet there was time the calamity which threatens to befall this national industry of shipbuilding as a consequence of the per- petual friction existing between themselves aiifl their employers. Between sectional disputes and the general strike the company had been heavy losers, but theirs was not the only loss, and th. total cost of the labour strife throughout the dis- trict would never be known. There appeared to be a growing tendency to discourage individual enterprise by hampering it with difficulties. Evcu the zeal of legislative enactments was apt to lw eome a tyranny in the path of thoso w:lG <iev;»- ted Uvea to promotion undertaking* for the emploTrTM»nt of mb^JT for an evcr-inrr^ss- ing population. Legislation was good and prop-r when it dealt with sweated industry, but it sui-ely could not be suggested th.at any of ti.a trades concerned in shipbuilding, engineering, and allied industries came into that category: Yet the abuse of legislative regulations was not the only or the worst feature of t:1i" tendency. The ways of capital had become subject to the active interference cf irresponsible and in.prne- ticable theoriuts in the alleged interests 01 tho workers. No ono had recognised nore fllH than himself the valuable part that coiii" be played by trade unions. but the vital thing for both sides in these days was that P- auction bhoald go forward smoothly, contigu- ously, in the spirit of men anx'ous to do th";r best in the interests of themselves and tI(,> r country. There must be in the future much more of co-operation than of criticism if produc lion was to proceed on a profitable basis for bo". parties. The situation was not in his opinion ab %olutely incapable of appeasement; and. if ill the parties to it would only bring to its consider- ation patience, calmness, fairness, and broad. mindedness, he was not without hope that next year he would be able to rcpo-t that substantial progress towards a permanent peace trad .t2 attained ir t) w"?«^rial world -0
