On Thursdiay night the Duchess of Westmin- ster motored from Eaten to Chester to attend the annual conversazione of the Natural Science Society, which was established by Charles Kingsley.

The Earl of Dundonald, who was 57 years old last week, has seen actiive service in Egypt, when he was on the desert march tOr the relief of Khartoum, and later on in South Africa, when ihei was in the thick of the fighting, and helped to relieve Ladysmith.

The Marquis of Anglesey is to take up his re- sidence at Beaudesert, his, place near Rugeley. An old-fashioned house, it is built on the plan of the letter E, after the manner of many houses oi that period. Its most famous resident was the Marquis of Anglesey who fought at Water- loo, and was only prevented by the loss of his leg, so the story ran, from capturing Napoleon in person. The Marquis returned to Beaudesert within two months of the battle, and there his life came to an end in 1854. The death has just occurred, at his residence Plasynfron, near Wrexham., of Captain G. C. C. Fenwick, formerly an officer in the Royal Welsh Fusiliers. He came of an old military family. His second wife, who survives him, is a niece of Sir Roger Palmer, Bart., of Cefn Park, Wrexham, who rode in the famous charge at Balaclava. Captain Fenwick, who was fifty- six years of age, had been for several years a member of the Wrexham District Council and the Board of Guardians, and was a frequent fol- lower of the hounds, hunting with the Wynn- stay pack. His elder son is Sir Roger Palmer's heir.
