Anaiie Jones, wife of Mr. David Jones, Elwy House, which sad event occurred suddenly on Friday morning.

In the Dorcas Society she was always most faithful. But it was, per- haps, in the home that she was seen at her best. She was a devoted wdfe and a loving mother, and the sympathy of the wihole town goes out to Mr. Jones and the family in their sad ber- eavement. The fuineral took place on Monday, at Zion Cemeteiy, and although the weather was most inclement, yet there was a large gathering of relatives and friends, who had come to pay their last tribute of respect, which, in itself, spoke volumes for the popularity and the esteem in which the deceased was held. The services were conducted by the Rev. William Thomas (pastor). The chief mourners were Mr. David Jones (husband), Misses Blodwen, Janet, and Annie Pierce Jones (daughters), Messrs. Evan, Howell, and Hugh Jones (sons), Mrs. Davies (mother), Mir. and Mrs. R. R. Owen (brother-in- law and sister), Master Arthur and Miss Dilys Owen (nephew and niece), Mr. and Mrs. W. H.

Penmaenmawr Compensation Case. At the Bangor C'opnty Court, on Monday, Mr. H. C. Vincent applied on behalf of Messrs. Brun- drit & Co., stone quarry proprietors, Penmaen- mawr, for a review and diminution of weekly payments to a workman named David Williams, of Ty Newydd, Penmaenmawr, who since Feb- ruary, 1908, by an agreement, had been paid a weekly wage of liS. nd. on account of injuries inflicted during his work at the quarry on the 25th February, 1908. Last May Williams's own doctor, Dr. Clifton Hughes, refused to say he was unfit for work, and now certified that he was fit for work, though another doctor had ex- pressed a different opinion. Since last August Williams had made no attempt to resume work, and had declined to refer the case to the deci- sion of an independent medical referee. Mr. Vincent did not suggest that Williams was mal- ingering, but he was very nervous and neurotic, and imagined pains. His Honour: That is very often the case when imaginary pain is a real hindrance. It is a real condition to the patient, though really an imag- inary one into which the man draws himself. After hearing a number of medical gentlemen, and the respondent Williams at great length., His Honour found applicant partially incapa- citated for work, but in his opinion he could do light work, and as time went on he would be able to do more. He awarded Williams ics. a week for the first four weeks from the date of the award, 8s. per week for the second four weeks, 6s. per week for the third four weeks, and 4s. per week during partial incapacity, with liberty to apply. Mr. Thornton Jones appeared for the respondent.
Rhos Improvement, To THE EDITOR OF THE Weekly 'News. Sir,—While the winter is still with us and there are so many men out of employment, will the Council kindly consider the advisability of taking in hand certain improvements which are greatly needed at Rhos. We have no public convenience, and it is sug- gested that the old bath-houses in the north comer of Comber mere Gardens could, with very little expenditure, be utilised for that purpose. We need at least one shelter at Rhos, and one or more between Rlhos and Colwyn Bay. More light is also needed at night in the busi. ness part of Rhos-road, and also in the roads beyond the Pier. Then the dangerous curve taken by the tram- way at the junction of Rhos-road and the Pro- menade will have to be altered, and better, be- fore than after a serious accident occurs. And while that is being done, it would be a conveni- ent time to join up the Rhos and Colwyn Bay sections of the Promenade. This will necessi- tate .some alteration-of the existing condition of Comber-mere Gardens. At present it is an en- closure which few people venture to enter. Why not pull down the walls at the east and west ends and the wall in the centre, and lay the grounds out as flower beds, with good, broad walks between? That, I believe, was the ob- ject of the petition recently sent to the Council, and it is now for our representatives to say what is to be done. The Council can make Combermere Gardens into a beautiful flower garden, which shall be part and parcel of the public Promenade, or they can turn it into a bear garden. Which is it to be? The ratepayers of Rhos almost unani- mously prefer the flower garden, with the' walls and palisades removed.—Yours truly, ONE OF THEM." Rhos, January 20th, 1909. Medical .men who use motor-cars in connection
"V ith their work will be interested in a precedent just established. The absence of a ruling ou the point of a deduction in respect of income-tax for depreciation of a car has led to much un- certainty. Acting on the advice of the Motor Union, a medical man recently applied for a deduction of one sixth of the original cost of his car. The surveyor of taxes has allowed the ap- plication, and unless his decision is reversed by his superiors the precedent will hold good in re- spect of cars owned and used for business pur-, poses. ■» to

Only one achievement can eclipse that perform- ance. That is-to reconcile the story with the facts.
EXTRACT FROM VIOLET'S "OWN STORY" IN WEDNESDAYS DAILY MAIL." Tell us in your own words, without question from me, what your experiences were on that Saturday. The greater part of the morning I spent in (romping about with a St. Bernard dog. Then after luncheon I made up my mind to go for a motor run. I went out with my chauffeur Wattts to look at the tyres, and asked him whether he thought they would do for a run up to London, as I had an appointment with my solicitor for the Monday following. He said he was quite sure they would not stand. I asked him if they would stand a run that afternoon. He said he thought so. It was about 3.30 before I was ready to leave. My sister had asked whether I was going out, and said she would lille to. come. We left Bod Erw soon after 3.30. My chauffeur Watts was driving. I was alongside him in front, and my sister was inside the landaulette. I usually took the front seat, unless it was very wet. We had no fixed destination until we reached Colwyn Bay. Then I turned to my sister and said, "Shall we go on for a run to Bangor and back?" It had been a most enjoyable run up to then. She agreed, and we went on to Bangor. At Bangor we had tea at the Castle Hotel. We stayed there talking, and I asked for a time- table, my object being to look out a train to run to London on Sunday, so that I could keep the appointment with my solicitor, as the car was not fit to do a journey of 220 miles. The motor was waiting near the Carnarvon cross roads, as the police would not allow the chauf- feur to wait in the narrow streets of Bangor. He had tea elsewhere. I did not notice the time particularly, but I think it would be about seven when we left the hotel. We took the same places as before, and went on towards Carnarvon for a mile or two. We made a circle, and came back again into the Ba-n,c)-OT-ro,ad. It was on the St. Asaph side of Bangor that the. car was not pulling nicely, and the chauffeur got down to see to. it. He had a lot of trouble with the car, but succeeded in getting it right. After passing through Penmaenmawr I took the wheel. He did not wish me to do so, but it was a bright, moonlight night, and though I had not driven for some time. I .am. uised to driving, and am considered a good driver. Not long after I had takei the wheel we went up the steep hill towards the place which I know now is Pen- maenbach Point. GAP IN THE WALL. How the accident occurred I do not exactly know any more than this—that I felt the wheel sort of tremble under my hand. What I think is that a stone or something caught the wheel. It requires so little to turn a car. I was driving on the right hand side of the road. The car suddenly swerved into the wall overhanging the sea. At the time I did not see there was a gap in the wall, and I completely lost my presence of mind. I was not able at the moment either to apply the brake or put on the clutch. I remember giving a fearful scream, and I re- member hearing my sistcr also give a scream. I attempted torise In my seat. The car came to a standstill on the edge of the cliff, and my idea was to get clear of the car, as I saw the water beneath me. My chauffeur caught hold of my arm and dragged me towards him. Just at that moment my chauffeur was either flung or jumped from the car. After that I seemed to, get a wee bit stunned, but only apparently for a short time. When I came to myself I looked round and saw the horrible position in which the car was placed, and at the first glance I could not see either my sister or my chauffeur. A sudden fit came into my head, and the awfulness of what had hap- pened came upon me. I had an overwhelming feeling, which I cannot possibly explain. The shock of the whole thing thrilled me in a way I cannot explain. I was unable to think. I simply saw the car on the brink of a precipice, and my sister and my driver had disappeared, I gave one wild look round, and then an impulse came into my head tar get away from the horrible associations of the place. I had lost my hat, which was a grey motor- cap, and I ran jut as I was in my crimson motor cloak, bareheaded, down the road into Conway. I thought my obstinacy in persisting in driving the car had been the means of causillng the deaths of my sister and Watts. I kept in the shadow of the rocks, so. that though I met a woman and one or two. youths 1 was not noticed. I did not stop running till I reached Conway station. A dread of-I don't know what—seemed to follow me. I caught the 9.23 train at Conway Station for Crewe. I had no ticket. I paid my fare at Crewe. I had still only the silk mackintosh hood of my motor oloaik to cover my head. You can imagine my feelings of distress as I sat in the carriage, which was empty IND to Chester, At Crewe I felt an impulse to go back, but had not the courage. I asked a porter at Crewe how the Scotch train ran.. He asked me what part of Scotland I wanted, Edinburgh or Glasgow. I said Glasgow," and booked third for Glas- gow on the four minutes past one train. I got into an empty carriage, and passed the night as best as I could. I was too wakeful to think of sleep. Some people entered the carri- age at Wigan. It was between seven and eight when I arrived at Glasgow. I took some re- freshments at the North British Hotel, but before that I picked some luggage—one box, which had been in Glasgow a long time, the box which was sent to Tobermory. I had left it at the station because I was frequently running be- tween England and Scotland. The greater part of Sunday I spent in my own room lying down. THE CRIMSON COAT. On Monday morning I saw in the daily papers the account of the accident, and you can imagine how thankful I was to know that my sister and Watts were safe. Still I was too frightened to let anyone know my whereabouts, although I was acquainted with people living in and near Glasgow. It dawned upon me that I might possibly be found owing to my crimson coat, which always attracted a good deal of attention. In the meantime I had not entered the hotel the coat, but had carried it on my arm. In Glasgorw I took the crimson coat to Pullar's, the dyers, and asked them to dye it blue. I gave them the name of Mackay, and a.=$:ed them to communicate with me ait Oban Post Office.
Liberalism at Penmaenmawr. MR. ALLANSON PICTON'S SERVICES TO THE NATION. The rumour that Liberalism at Penmaenmawr, was on the down grade was controverted. last Thursday night by the crowded house at the Ox- ford Hall, when Mr. William Jones, the Mem- ber of Parliament for the constituency, appeared on the platform, in the course of his touir of the constituency. Mir. J. Allanson Picton, J.P., presided, and was supported on the platform by Mrs. Picton, Mr. William Jones, M.P., the Rev. Thomas Hughes, Bangor; the Rev. E. C. Hart, and others. The Chairman referred to the terrible weather that was prevailing, and said he was glad to thilink that despite that the Liberals of Penmaen- mawr had rallied together to support their mem- her in his arduous duties. He regretted very much the absence of Colonel C. H. Darbishire, who was unavoidably kept away from home owing to urgent business. The speaker went on to refer in a masterly way to the action of the House of Lords in rejecting various useful Bills submitted to them by the Government. He did not deny the fact that a revising and advisory chamber was necessary, but he felt that it should be a representative one, and not composed of sons of fathers who were hunted from every comer of the .globe to reject the Liberal measures. At the conclusion of a most excellent address, he moved a resolution embodying their approval of the action of the Government, and their deprecation of the actions of the House of Lords. The .Rev. Thomas Hughes seconded in a stir- ring Welsh speech, and the resolution was car- ried unanimously. Mr. William Jones, M.P., had a rousing re- ception. In his usual masterly style, he touched upon all the important questions of the day, his remarks being punctuated by rounds of applause. The Chairman afterwards moved, and Mr. P. H. Mc Clement (Chairman of the Carnarvonshire Liberal Association) seconded, a vote of confid- ernce in their Member, and this was carried with acclamation. Mir. William Jones, M.P., moved the vote of thanks to the Chairman. In seconding, the Rev. E. C. Hart said that when in Liverpool he always thought of the great work done for that city by the late Sir James Picton. The Chairman, however, had ex- tended his labours wider afield—in Parliament, Education, and Literature. (Cheers.) He sin- cerely hoped that when the next list of Birthday Honours was published, the inam-e of the Chair- man would be amongst them, as a reward for the great work he had done for the nation. (Ap- plause. ) The resolution was carried unanimously, a;nd the Chairman briefly returned thanks.
