DEATH OF A LADY.-The death took place a short time ago of Mrs. Phoebe Jones, the beloved wife of Mr. John Jones, Canford Cottage, who was a deacon and the treasurer of the Salem Congregational Chapel.

The bird shown was a blue turbit, of which the judge spoke very highly. VERY SERIOUS !—The following paragraph appeared in John Bull for November 20th: The Llanfairfechan District Council seems to consist of persons who. strain at gnats and swallow mountains easily. In saying this, we rely upon the statements of a visitor named Mr. A. B. Seymo'ur. Another visitor, it appears, had complained about the growing practice of bathers who dispense with the use Oil machines, and walk in bathing costumes direct from the lodging-houses into the sea." Of course, as Maeterlinck said recently, most of us are naked under our clothes and these wicked folk at Llanfairfechan. apparently wore mackintoshes or dressing gowns over their bathing costumes. Presumably the creature who found them most objectionable would like them to carry umbrellas too. Anyway, his pro- test brought Mr. Seymour in-to, the fray. He makes a perfectly revolting charge. Both sexes are allowed in the same bathing box at the same time," he rays. Our secret service agent informs us that there are hotels in Llanfair- fechan where both sexes are allowed in the same bed at the same time.' We must look :nto this."
HOLYWELL. ARTIZA-r¡S' DWELLINGS.—At a meeting of the Holywell Rural District Council on Friday the Local Government Board wrote that the London and North-Western Railway Company had submitted to them certain proposals for the erection of new dwelling's suitable for the work- ing classes to replace the houses which would be displaced at Greenfield by the Comnany's Act of 1906, authorising the construction of the railway from Greenfield to Holywell, and stating I that one of their inspectors would hold a local inquiry on the subject on December 9th.

Lloyd as cookery mistress, and Mr Wil- liam Williams as master of woodwork. THE INFANTS' SCHOOL.—His Majesty's Inspector reported as follows on the infants' schools This is an exceptionally well-taught school. The instruction is given in the true Kindergarten spirit, and the natural activities of the children are skilfully directed towards secur- ing intelligent and successful work. Lessons arc well graded, and thoughtfully prepared, and all subjects are appropriately inter-connected.

LIKE A HOTTENTOT VILI,AGE.Such, were the remarks of a gentleman in commercial world as being applicable to the main road leading from the railway station past Penrhos- terrace. The place is in a deplorable condition owing to. breaking up the road for gas pipes, the heavy rains, and the constant need of scrap- ing them. Now that the rates are so abnor- mally high, it is only reasonable that those who contribute so much towards the administration should have cleaner roads to work upon. instead of being ankle deep in mud.

Luther Thomas, pastor of the Broad-street Con- gregational Church, on Sunday evening, during his sermon, bemoaned the fact that the Press of to-day was largely responsible for much of the present condition of the people, inasmuch as so little space was given to those matters which elevate and ennoble life, whilst fifteen and six- teen columns, can be found relating to sport of the day. I TURNING ON THE GAS.-Much interest was centred in the even of turning on the gas in this place on Monday evening. The first light was seen at Mr. H. W. Hughes' Stanley Stores.

"The Great Ice Age in North Wales INTERESTING LECTURE AT ABERGELE. The above formed the subject of a highly interesting lecture which Mr. W. Bezant Lowe, M.A., F.R.C.S., Llanfairfechan, delivered at a well-attended meeting held on Friday evening at the County School Hall, Abergele, under the auspices of the Abergele anc District Antiquar- ian Association The chair was occupied by Dr. J. Lloyd Ro- berts, Colwyn Bay, and among the audience were many of the older pupils, attending the County School. Mr. Lowe, at the outset, said he felt he was coming to visit old friends, having on two or three occasions lectured in that room, and he hoped that on the present occasion they would keep up the interest shown by them in, his sub- jects on his former visits. Ice was a cold sub- ject, but he trusted that the warmth of his hearers' interest in it would be sufficient to keep them from freezing. The lecture was fully illustrated with a fine series of between fifty and .sixty special slides, and these were thrown on the canvas by a in- tern skilfully manipulated by the Rev. D. R. Griffith, M.A., curate of Abergele. The lecturer first of .all treated the conditions for the formation of glaciers and the structure of glacial ice, and then traced their causes and the results of their movements. Glaciers were often called rivers of ice, and they resembled rivers in many respects. They moved more rapidly at the top than at the bottom, and in the middle than at the sides, whilst in open valleys they expanded and filled, and in narrow valleys they adapted themselves to the narrow space. That could be proved t>y placing sticks across the glacier in a straight line, and in time these would attain a curved position, thus prov- ing that the centre sticks moved more rapidly than those in the sides. me speaker made an interesting comparison of the glaciers of Switzerland with those of Norway, Spitzbergen, Greenland, &c., remark- ing that those of Norway extended right to the sea and carried with them a large deposit of moraine matter. Those of Spitzbergen were con- vex, gigantic, vertical walls of ice, with ice- bergs often breaking away from them. In the far north of America were glaciers of enormous .size, some thirty miles wide in the upper posi- tion, and containing deposits of moraine matter. The Greenland glaciers were of a different type of ice—namely, surface ice, or sheet ice, with hardly a rock visible, but a mountain peak occa- sionally sticking out through the sheet. Com- paring the icebergs of the North with those of the South, Mr Lowe said they differed consider- ably. The latter were, he said, tabular, with normous sides, and measured by miles. They became detached from the great Antartic Ice Barrier mentioned by Sir E. Shackleton, the explorer. Continuing, the lecturer said the modem glacier does two- things-it is a denuding agent, and a carrying agent. In the North of Scotland a glacier rounded off the surface of a rock, covered it with scratches, and ori, that rock were perched stones formed of moraine matter, left on the edge of the precipice where the glacier happened to be. Coming to Wales, Mr. Lowe traced the de- velopment of glacial action in several parts of the country. An old view was shown, of Snow- don and the Pass of Llanberis, from a diagram by Thomas Pennant, giving a fair idea of that district as it appeared to him, showing perched rocks found in strange positions. Those rocks were different in character to those on which they rested, which proved that glacial action had taken, place, and that the glacier had a carrying capacity. The great ice-sheet covered the greater portion of Scotland, then the Lake District, crossing the Sea of Ireland, it covered that country also, came back to Liverpool, then on to Chester. From Chester one portion of it covered the great plain of Cheshire, the other portion coming in a westerly direction along the coast of North Wales past Abergele, leaving be- hind it the boulder clays at Llanddulas, Llys- faen, and Penmaen Rhos. Crossing the Pen- maen promontory, it left scratches indicating the direction of its course then over the Great Orme, where also it left further traces of its journey. Thence to Penmaenmawr, Menai Straits, Carnarvon, Penygroes, down to the Lleyn Peninsula, and then (Mr. Lowe supposed) it was lost in the sea. The whole of North Wales was at that period covered with ice in the form of glaciers, and all the valleys were filled--even the small ones at Llanddufias and Abergele. The great accumulating centre was in Carnarvonshire, and from that centre the lecturer pointed out the course of the number of glaciers which issued in several directions. Mr. Lowe said that before the glacial period there was probably no Isle of Anglesey (that is to say, there were no Menai Straits cutting the island from the main land). On either side of the Straits were now to be found the same boulder clays and glacial remains—loose stones, shales, sandstone, and boulder clays and that proved that in pre-gl acial times Carnarvonshire and Anglesey were connected by land, which (in all probability) was scooped out by the ice-sheot. Although Professor Ramsay (the lecturer's tutor at Cambridge) did not share that view, Mr. Lowe said that circumstances were chang- ing and investigation had gone on, with the re- sult that the geologists of the present day were able to explain more fully the nature of those things. Mr. Lowe devoted the latter portion of his lecture to the treatment of re-elevation and re- appearance of glaciers in the Passes of Nant Ffrancon and Llanberis, and in Nant Gwynant; the summit of Snowdon during the glacial period; and a description was given of the glacier that filled, the Pass of Llanberis as it then ex'sted. In conclusion, Mr. Lowe regretted that he had had to deliver his lecture so hurriedly, but he had endeavoured to give his hearers as clear a picture as he could of the counties of Carnarvon and Denbigh during the Great Ice Age." (Applause.) In moving a hearty vote of thanks to the lecturer, Mr. J. Williams, M.A., headmaster of the County School, said it was at his sugges- tion that so many of the older children attend- ing the school had remained to hear the lecture, and he now felt sorry that the whole of the scholars had not been given the opportunity. Geography was taken in all the classes at the school, and the subject was treated from every point of view. They did not adhere to the old style of teaching the subject, but made it a more scientific study by dealing with the com- position of the mountains and the formation of the valleys, and so forth. It afforded him the greatest pleasure to move a hearty vote of thanks to Mr. Lowe for his most interesting lecture. The vote was enthusiastically passed. The lecturer returned thanks, and said he would make an effort to come to give the lec- ture again to the school pupils. (Applause.) A hearty vote of thanks was also passed to the Rev. D. R. Griffith for his services with the lantern.

Death of Mr. Harry Clegg. The death ooourredi, at his residence. Plas Llanfair, Anglesey, on Friday night, of Mr. Harry Clegg, in his 67th year. Mr. Clegg was out and about a few days before, but was un- expectedly taken ÜI" and pneumonia set in. Mr. Clegg was a son of the late Mr. Kay OLegg, of Oldham, and was at one time clerk to the magistrates in his native town. Retiring; from practice many years ago, he purohasedl the beautifully situated estate of Plas Llanfair, Anglesey, from the late Lord Clarence Paget, and since then has resided there. He was a justice of the peace for the counties of Lan- caster, Carnarvonshire, and Anglesey, and D.L. for the last county. In 1892 he was High Sheriff of Anglesey. At the time of his death- he was Chairman of the Carnarvon Harbour Tiusti and President of the Carnarvonshire and Anglesey Infirmary, in which he evinced the greatest interest. At the annual meeting of this institution, which was held on Monday, Mr. Clegg s annual report (which would have been read by himself) was presented. The con- cluding paragraph reads:—"I trust the sub- scribers will appoint a President in my place, as I feel I must cease to act in that capacity, and would urge the advisability of having a yearly change in that office as heretofore, and thus enlisting the active interest of others." Mr. Clegg took an active general interest in public affairs. He was an alderman of the- Anglesey County Council, an ex-officio member of the Bangor and Beaumaris Guardians and of the Finance Committee, of which he was chair- man, and was a member of the North Wales Counties Lunatic Asylum Visiting; Committee. His legal knowledge was very heLpful on the various local benches. He leaves a widow and family. Mr. Harry Clegg (a Carnarvon correspondent writes) was, by reason of the prominent part he took in the public life of the district, a well- known figure in Carnarvon, and the new of his, death came as a painful surprise. Mr. Clegg was most conscientious in all that he took up on behalf of the public, and in no position did he show this trait more thoroughly than as Chairman of the Carnarvon Harbour Trust, of which he had been a member for many years. He was a member of the Royal Welsh Yacht: Ciub and a k,een, supporter of the yachting fix- tures of that club and likewise of the other Menai Straits regattas.
Beautiful Dcganwy. last night (Wednesday) an i:i:porN .:t. public meeting was held in the Church Schools, Deganwy, the object of which was to correct the impression that has got abroad as a result of newspaper reports that typhoid fever has been and is still prevalent in Deganwy.

Carter, Dr. Hamilton, Mr. Willoughby Gardner, the Rev. '• F- R«ece, and the Rev. O. belwyn Jones, all" of whom delivered excellent addresses, and Councillor James Stott also added his word of testimony to the health of this neighbourhood. Owing to extreme pressure on our space, we a.re compelled to hold over a full report of the speeches until next week.
