ABERGELE. A FLOURISHING TONTINE.—During the past three years, owing to, the energies of Mr R. Pickup (president), Mr Edward Williams, J.P. (chairman), and Mr Arthur P. Leigh, the inde- fatigable secretary, the Abergele Tontine Society is in a very flourishing condition.. The (membership has now reached the grand total of 227, and a divide of £ 1 per head will shortly be distributed, thereby bringing with it the pro- spects of a happy Yuletide during the present quiet state of things. It is expected that there will be another substantial increase of members during the coming year, and there is no doubt but that the society is a great boan, to the work- ing man. Forty pounds has been spent in sick pay, and' two widows have received funeral al- lowances. The society encourages thrift, and it is worked by the officials on an. able and economical basis. The genial; and obliging sec- retary, Mr Arthur Leigh, is heart and soul in his work, and to him is a great measure of the signal success due.
