NODION Llywarch Hen. Creuir nifer dda o Gymdeithasau Cym- mrodoiion. Hwy wnant les, hyrwyddant ymchwil i hanes a lien, a chadwant yn fyw ein teimlad gwladgar. Cadwer hwy rhag bod yn fendith i Ddic Shon Dafyddiaeth. Fei rheol Saesneg yw eu hiaith, a noddant y Gymraeg yn drugarog, fel pe bai'n hen wraig gloff o'r strud. Dylent gredu ynddi a mynu ei llwyddo o'r heol i'r aelwyd. Ni cha Mesur y Shio-pau fordaith holl- ol dawel pan ddaw oddi ar y blociau i ddeu- for gyfarfod ein Senedd. Cond-emnia'r ar- weinwyr Rhyddfrydol a'r enwadau crefydd- ol rai o'l adranau. Condemnia rhai y Mesur am y rhydd fantais i fasnachu i'r estroniaid a ddaw i'n gwlad, a halogi ein Sabboth. Rhy hunan-gyfiawn yw dedfryd o'r fath. A fedrwn ni ddal y rawf? Os na phrynwn, ni egyr neb ei shiop. Ofnaf yn onest, os ceir hawl i fasnachu, y gwelir Cymry glan yn troi eu troed oddi wrth y Sabboth. Felly, rhwydd hynt gaffo'r ymysgwyd i dori darnau o'r Mesur ymaith. Bydd ein gwlad cyn bo hit yn lan o bob gwahanglwyf, heb neb yn cwyno. Ni wnaed erioed gymaint er ein cael yn iach. Mud- iad mawr yw'r vmgyrch ar y Darfodedig- aeth. Ofnaf am ei wedd unochrog. Nid digon adeiladu sefydliadau iach i wella'r claf; rhaid myned l'n tai bychain a diawyr i ladd yr afiechyd ei hun. Os na leddir y cadarn ei hun, anhawdd dwyn y caffeiliad oddi arno. Ni fedraf gredu y gwadiad ohono fel anhwyldeb etifeddol, oherwydd hyd y gwelais, llinell teulu yw ei rodfa arferol. Mudiad arall canmoladwy yw gosod gwein- yddesau draw ac yma yn y wlad. Nid oes odid ardal heb nurse, hoffir hwy'n fawr gan y bobl, a bendithir eu gwasanaeth. Chware'] plant yw chwareu tan gwyllt ar ddydd Brad y Pwdr Gwn." Gwnaeth Guy Fawkes ei hun yn sant anfarwol, a chedwir ei wy 1 yn llawen yn ol yr arfer Babaidd o gadw gwyliau yn ein gwlad ganrifoedd yn ol. Ni wyr odid neb am y Brad ni wydd- ont amgen nad oedd Guy yn un o gymwyn- aswyr cymdeithas. Edrych yn ddistawddig v mae'r Pabyddion ar y chwareu. Iddynt hwy a phawb a wyr yr hanes y mae'r di- grifwch yn tdgofio hen falais Babaidd. 0 barch i deimladau, ac i bwrpas cymdogaeth dda, dylid rhoddi heibio'r digrifwch. Ond rhaid i ni fodloni, tra parhao, i ddioddef dingcod pechodau ein tadau. Un o feiau amlwg y Pabyddion yw eu hanfedr i ddi- oddef, a hyny pan dynont y gosb ar eu hysgwyddau eu hunain. Yn y "Times" cwyna'r Mri. Gilbey, perchenogion gwingafnau'r wlad, na bu ffrwyth eleni ar y gwinwvdd. Ni bu amser cyn waethed ers can mlynedd. Difethwyd hwy gan haf oerfelog, ac er cael Medi tesog ni fu'n foddion i roddi atwf yn y grawnwin. Moeth ddiangen yw gwin i bobl y wlad hon, a chwpanau pleser y gwr goludog. Gwir yr yf y Ffrancwr ei win fel dwfr, ac am dro cymered ddwfr yn lie gwin, fel y caffo fan- tais i ddeall ei fod well a rhatach na'r ddiod goch. Newydd drwg i lawer fydd y newydd am newyn gwin, n. gwaeth newydd i'r rhai sy'n byw yn dda ar ei bris uchel, nag i'r rhai sy'n caru ei flas. Cymered ein tlodion bwyll a hamdden i ystyried eu budd eu hunain yn y newid o gymorth plwyf i'r Bensiwn. Gwelaf fod rhai Byrddau Gwarcheidwaid yn brysio i'w gorfodi i gymeryd y Bensiwn. Ni fedd y Byrddau rith o hawl i ddim o'r fath, ac y mae eu gwaith yn gosod eu swyddogion i anog ar hyn yn gam byrbwyll o dan am- gylchiadau mor dywyll. Egwyddor y Ben- siwn yw helpio pobl sydd yn medru helpio ychydig arnynt eu hunain. Nid rhoddi pum swllt o Bensiwn fel swn digonol i fyw wnaeth Mr. Lloyd George, ond eu rhoddi i helpu rhyw arian arall. Cymorth i bobl heb ddim yw cymorth plwyf ni chant hwy weithio diwrnod o waith pe medrant heb fod rtlewn perygl o gael tynu eu pau blwyfol i lawr. Y mae gwaith y Byrddau yn ceisio bwrw eu baich ar Bwrs y Bensiwn yn fwrw ymaith eu cyfrifoldeb eu hunain, a byddant hwy a'r tlodion mewn anhawster yn fuan. Gwell i bob tlawd fedr enill ychydig ac sydd yn cael llai na phum swllt o'r plwy, gwell iddynt gymeryd y Bensiwn. Ond am y rhai llesg ac aflach a hollol ddi-help, gwell iddynt lynu wrth y plwy. Gall y bydd rhaid iddynt gael chwaneg na phum swllt yn fuan. GaHant gael hyny gan y plwy, ond ni chant ddim ond y pum swllt gan y Bensiwn. Y mae'r meddyg yn aros iddynt fel o'r blaen. v Math o bwyilgor i godi gwynt i faneri'r Blaid Geidwadol yw'r peth a eiwir yn Mudiad Reveille."

Rhaid cael gwynt i gyhwyfan hono deued a ddelo. Oherwydd fe fyddai colli'r Iwerddon fel march hwylus yn y redegfa wleidyddol yn golled anadfer- adwy Yn ol Cyhoeddiad y gwyr hyn, gelyniaeth, casineb, a llid" yw'r ysbryd- ion sy'n gweithio'r Blaid Ryddfrydol.

Darnodiad hallt, ond hawdd i Geidwadwr goludog ei gredu, am fod bysedd Cvllideb Mr. Lloyd George yn myned yn lied ddwfn i'w llogellau.

Gwell fuasai peidio datgan barn o fath yn y byd arnynt; oherwydd mater 1 gydwybod y dyn ei hun ydyw, fel y cig a aberthwyd i eulunod.

Great Orme's Head Tragedy. NURSEMAID'S FATAL FALL. PRECIPITATED 150 FEET. HOW THE ACCIDENT HAPPENED. SUGGESTED WARNING TO VISITORS. Great Orme, the famous landmark on the North Wales coast, was on Friday morning the scene of a tragic ocouirence, as a result of which a young woman of 23, named Annie Plant, and who .vas engaged as a nursemaid by Dr. Melland, of the Bowers, Altrincham, Cheshire, was killed, and one ot the two of the doctor's children, who were in her charge, \vas seriously injured by falling a considerable distance down the cliff. The two children were aged eight and four years respectively. On Wednesday of last week Mrs. Melland, the mother, took the little ones, accompanied by the unfortunate I nurse, to Llandudno, where she stayed with her sister, Mis. Weils, who resides at Glan- fryn, Abbey-road. Taking advantage of the fine morning on Friday the mother instruct- ) ed Miss Plant to take the children for a stroll. They left the house about ten o'clock, and went in the direction of Great Orme's Head. That seems to have been the last seen of them. They appear, however, to have en- deavoured to climb the precipice, the young ladv carrying the youngest child in her arms. The next news concerning them was that a terrible tragedy had occurred, when a little girl gave the a.! arm to the Llandudno police that a young lady bad fallen down the Great Orme and was lying on the Marine Drive. To expedite their getting to the scene the police engaged a cab, and on arrival found that the story was only too true, and the nurse and younger child were lying close together on the promenade Medical aid was immediately sought, and Dr. Nicol, of Llan- dudno, who quickly reached the spot, pro- nounced life extinct in the case of the nurse, who had been dashed against the rocks, sus- taining allocking injuiies, including a dis- located neck, broken arm, and broken leg, and her features were almost unrecognisable. The younger child had a miraculous escape — from death. Evidently the nurse in the course of her terrible fall maintained a firm hold of her oharge, and thus protected it from serious injury. No limbs were broken, and although it sustained two nasty scalp wounds there is every probability that it will recover. Fortunately the elder child stayed at the top of the rock and remained safe. She returned down the mountain herself by the proper route. Miss Plant must have fallen a dis- tance of between 100 and i.So feet to the steep grassy slope down which she rolled. Her body was subsequently removed to the Llandudno mortuary to await the inquest. Subsequently Sergeant Richaids ascended the grassy slope to the point where the maid and little girl struck after tumbling down the cliff, and there found both their hats and other aiticles. It appears that Charles Moss, a boatman, who was in his boat on the north side of the pier, saw the accident. He rowed ashore, ran up the drive, picked up the little one, and was carrying it to the doctor when the police arnved in the cab. Miss Plant was also a native of Altrincham, Cheshire, and it is stated that he.- brother resides at Colwvn Bay. EVIDENCE AT THE INQUEST. A WOMAN'S CALLOUSNESS. Mr. J. Pentir Williams, Bangor, the Coroner for the district, presided at the in- quest at the Town Hall, on Saturday. Dr. Brian Melland, of the Bower, Ashley- road, Altrincham, stated that the deceased woman was nurse-holuseunaid in his employ. She was about twenty-five years of age, and had been in his service about a month. She was a verv nice girl, but rather thoughtless. Norah Melland, the seven year old daughter of the previous witness, who answered the coroner's questions very clear- ly and intelligently, said she spent some time with the nurse and her younger sister, Sylvia, on the top of the Ormc. They first went through the toilgate and walked along the drive. Then they climbed up from the drive to the top. They were on a steep grassy slope wdien the nurse slipped and rolled down. Sylvia, who had hold of her hand, also fell. The witness cried out, and crept upwards until she reached a level place, where she waited. In reiply to the Coroner, the little girl said she did not hear her mother tell the nurse she was not to climb into any dangerous places.

Summer School of Temperance. NEXT YEAR AT LLANDUDNO. A meeting was held at Rhyl on Saturday in connection with the North Wales Tem- perance Federation for the purpose of con- 1 r sidering the arrangements to be made for the next summer school of temperance, hygiene, and physical training to be promoted by the Federation. Last summer -the school met successfully at Colwvn Pay, and it was in- augurated the previous year at Rhyl. Satur- day's conference was presided over by Sir Herbert Roberts, M.P., the President of the Federation, and was attended by the staff of lecturers, representatives from the education authorities of North Wales, and members of the Executive of the Federation. It was reported by the Secretary, the Rev. J. Glyn Davies, that with a view to ascer- taining the wishes of the students attending the last summer school as to the place in which the next one should be held a ballot was taken, which resulted in an overwhelm- ing majority in favour of Llandudno. The Conference accordingly decided that i,c-xt year's session hould take place in the Llan- dudno County School building, which, as Mr. James Marks, their Clerk, had an- nounced at the Wrexham meeting of the Federation, will be lent for the purpose by the Governors. The session will commence on the last day in July, and will extend over a fortnight. The syllabus will comprise, as this year, a first year's and a second year's course, with a class" in addition for third year students having for its object the appli- cation of the scientific and other aspects of the subjects studied in the first two years to individual and communal economics.
Welsh Crusade Against Consumption. NATIONAL SUNDAY COLLECTION. At a recent meeting of the Executive Com- mittee of the Welsh King Edward Memorial it was agreed to invite the churches of Walec to unite in a national Sunday collection in aid of the Memorial Fund. This suggestion has met with widespread support. The Calvinistic Methodist Associations of North and South Wrales, which met recently, passed unanimous resolutions in favour of devoting special collections on Christmas Sunday to the Fund. The Welsh Bishops and the leaders of the Free Churches in Wales are considering this proposal, and will pro- bably unite in an appeal to their congrega- tions to join in the crusade. Already, quite spontaneously, collections have been taken up in several churches. All such collections which reach the Hon. Treasurer will be dulv credited to the respective denominations when the result of the National Sunday Col- lection is published early in the new year. The following public meetings have been already arranged on behalf of the fund :— November 7th; meeting of Liverpool Welsh- men, summoned by the Lord Mayor, to be held at Liverpool. Speakers Mr. David j Davies, M.P., Dr. Nathan Raw, and others. November 7th, Newport, meeting summoned by the Mayor. November 12th, Mont- gomery county meeting, stiininone(I by Sir W. Williams Wynn, to be held at Welshpool. Speakers Dr. Arthur Latham, of London, and others. November 14th, Denbigh coun- ty meeting, summoned by Colonel Cornwallis- West, to be held at the County Hall, Denbigh. November 19th, Carnarvon county meeting, summoned by Mr. J. E. Greaves, to be held at Carnarvon. November 24th, Swansea, summoned by the Mayor. Speakers Lady Aberdeen and others.
There is a remarkably large number of North Walians occupying Calvinistic Meth- odist pulpits in Wales; indeed, they have a virtual monopoly of the English Churches of the denomination. This may be changed before long. The North Wales Sassiwn has just decided that the minimum salary of a minister shall 'henceforth be Ciioo; in South ) Wales the figure is £84.

The annual meeting of the above Associa- tion was held in the Council Chamber, Llan- dudnc, on Monday evening, when there was a good attendance. Mr. Ernest E. Bone, J.P., Chairman of the Urban District Council, presided. Mrs Elsie M. Marks presented the annual report, which was as follows The Committee of the Llandudno Charity Association have pleasure in presenting to the subscribers their seventh annual report and balance sheet. Wre are glad to record that work was fairly plentiful during the winter and spring months, and it was not necessary to open the wood yard until Janu- ary 27th, when it remained open for seven weeks. In spite of the fact that it was rather late in the season to sell firewood in any quantity, about ten pounds' worth was disposed of, and there is now about seven pounds' worth in stock. Every effort was made to give work only to those men who, by age or illness, were unable to obtain work in Llandudno, or, through circumstances they could not control, go elsewhere to seek it. Assistance in kind has been freely given in all cases deserving help. Milk and strengthening foods have been supplied in several chronic cases of sickness. Railway fares have been paid, or part paid, for several persons to go to see specialists, or to hospi- tals lor treatment, and in three cases to en- able persons stranded here to get back yo their native places, and to friends who pro- mised us to help them. Also, fares have been paid, in exceptional cases, for maids going to service. A great deal has been done by the Committee and its Agent to obtain places for maids, charwomen, &c. The cases re- quiring boots arc generally brought to our notice by the Head Teachers of schools and are very rarely refused. Assistance in mat- ters of outfit for young girls going to situa- tions has been given cut of the funds, and also individually by members of the Com- mittee, who most generously contribute personally in many special cases. Under this heading we must specially thank Mr. W. S. Williams, Bryn Gwvn, who gave us a large quantity of new clothing to distribute, I as well as blankets, useful lengths of flannel, and material for making up. The value of the gifts must have exceeded f5, and it has been a great pleasure to see that the coats, skirts, children's clothing, &c., have been given to the thrifty poor who have thoroughly appreciated the gifts and made good use of them. It is satisfactory to be able to state that the cases of neglect of children have not been nearly so many nor so bad as in other years. The K.S.P.C.C. is undoubtedly doing excellent work in North Wales, and its officers are always very good in calling at houses reported to them. "the after-supervision 01 medically-inspected children (towards which the County Council contributes ^14 10s. per annum) was systematically carried out, and a hundred such cases were person- ally inquired into by the following ladies St. George's and St. Beuno's district—Miss Buckley Lloyd-street schools—Mrs. J. Ro- berts and Mrs. James Marks Dyffryn-road schools—Mrs. Barrow Williams and Mrs. O. W. Roberts Craig-y-Don schools—Mrs. Raymond and Miss Clirissie Roberts. When necessary, adequate assistance followed in- spection, and there is no doubt this part of our work is very valuable, not only to the children, but to our Association, as it brings us into close and sympathetic touch with the poorer parents. We have to thank Mr. Vaughan Humphreys, of the Dyffryn Road school, for the proceeds (£7) of an excellent entertainment given by his scholars. Also the Misses Woodcock, of Craig-y-Don, for the gift of an invalid chair for the use of the sick poor. In conclusion, we thank all the subscribers for their support in the past year. (Signed) ELSIE MAY MARKS (Hon. Secretary). FREE MEALS FOR UNDERFED CHILDREN. These meals were commenced early in January and continued through February and March. Tickets were given to 170 child- ren, their names being obtained from the head teachers of the elementary schools, as in former years, and their claims investigated when necessary by the Association's agent. The meals for the majority of the children, were, as usual, served at the Cocoa House, Mostyn-street, while those for about two dozen of the younger children, who live on the Orme; were served at Ty'nycoed Stores, as last year, through the kindness of Mr. W. J. Roberts, and his daughter, to whom the Committee tender their verv hearty thanks. The continued support and assist- ance of the teachers of the various schools is much appreciated, it being high testimony to the value of the work done, by those best able to judge. The following ladies acted on the Free Meals Committee, and in turn superintended and waited on the children at meals, and helped in investigating cases —Mrs. Barrow Williams, Miss Buckley, Mrs. H. Edwards, Mrs. Llewelyn Hughes, Mrs. Reeves Hughes, Miss Hooson, Miss Hughes, Mrs. B. C. Jones, Mrs. James Marks, Miss Laura Owen, Mrs. Raymond, Mrs. T. Ro- berts, Mrs. John Roberts, Mrs. O. W.

It is a great pleasure to be able to state that the work of the thrift department has been maintained throughout the year, and, though we might expect a falling off after the enthusiasm of the first start, there has been no falling oft in the amounts. The numbers are at present as high as they ever have been, and the benefit as much appreci- ated by the members. We should welcome a larger number of members who would take advantage of this excelIent opportunity of putting by for the time of need and family stress. The lady collectors who have charge of the various districts, have again faithfully performed their work and our best thanks are due to them. The following are the lady collectors and their districts :— Council-street, Mrs Rowlands Cwlach treet, Mrs. J. D. Owen Old Road district, Miss R W. Jephcott Jubilee-street, Madoc-street, and Chapel-street, Miss Price Back Madoc- street, Miss Arkle Alexandra-road and King's-road, Miss G. Mather Clifton-road Miss Waterson. (Signed) MAY E. HUGHES, Hon. Secretary, Thrift Department. FINANCIAL STATEMENT. With a balance brought forward from last year of £ 2 16s. 4d., the receipts were /100 17s. 2d., and the payments /87 lis. fod., leaving a balance of /13 5s. 4d. The re- ceipts for the Free Meals Fund, with a bal- ance from 1909 of ^12 15s. ]f] were /25 8s. 7d., and the expenditure £ 23 19S. I0d. leaving a balance of £ l 8s. 9d. in hand The report was adopted. The Chairman said that anyone who had read the report presented could not help being impressed with the good work which was done by the Association. The report was a concise account of the administration of the funds of the Association. The work of the Association was very beneficial and varied in character. He saw the Association found work for the unemployed and paid the fares of persons tp places of ii-ork, and also when necessary fares to return home. Invalided people had also been enabled to visit the specialist, boots had been supplied to necessitous school children, and free meals had also been supplied to children. A most valuable adjunct of the Association was the thrift fund, which encouraged the. putting by when enabled, of sums for a rainy day. Further, the Association did not do any- thing to check private charity, and no case of distress was overlooked where there was real destitutioil. The work of the Associa- tion was the most beneficient which any society could undertake, and the town of Llandudno was to be congratulated upon possessing such an Association. He had pleasure in moving the adoption of the re- port. Mrs. Barrow Williams seconded. The Chairman invited discussion. There were plenty of kicks to be had and few half- pence when doing such work. No comment was made, and the motion was carried unanimously. The following officers were elected — President The Right Hon. Lord Mostyn. Vice-Presidents Lady H. A. Mostyn, Miss Barker, Mrs. Walker, Miss A. Barker, Messrs. John Walker, J. Adey Wells, J.P., J. O. Thomas, J.P., George Barker, W. H. Jones, Jas. McMaster, E. E. Bone, J.P., G. A. Hum- phreys, and R.

Llandudno Field Club. VISIT TO DEGANWY CASTLE. An inspection of the. ruins of Deganwv Castle, an ancient stronghold of hlch there are considerable fragmentary remains, v. as made on Saturday afternoon by members of the Llandudno Field Club. The party, who were led by Mr. G. A. Humphreys, ascended the Vardre Hill, upon which the greater por- tion of the ruins are situated. The features of the fortifications were pointed out by Mr. Humphreys, who attempted to trace an analogy between the retnains of habitation on the top of Conway Mountain and those supposed to have existed at Deganwy, but subsequently obliterated by later military exigencies. It was known (said Mr. Hum- phreys) that the inhabitants of those early dwellings were in the new-stone" (or neolithic) stage of culture. Professor Boyd Dawkins had stated that they were Iberians, and clearly they were the people inhabiting this part of Wales at the time 01 the first Celtic invasion. The vanguard of the Celtic conquerors were called by Sir John Rhys Goidels," to distinguish them from the Brythons, who constituted the second set of invaders. There are philological differ- ences between the Goidels and the Brythons, and they are also to be distinguished archaeologically, the former being in the bronze-age stage of culture and the latter in the early- iron age when they arrived in Britain. These latter Celts introduced iron into Britain about 300 years before Christ. At the time of the Roman invasion the Brythonic tribes inhabited the greater part of England and parts of Wales. Tacitus gives much interesting reading relative to North Wales, and vividly describes a. battle by the Romans under Ostorius and the Brit- ons under Caractacus. Tacitus is the earli- est author to menticn any place at the mouth of the River Conway, and possibly, according to Humphry Llwyd, Deganwv is one of the places alluded to by the Roman writer. There is no actual Roman work at Deganwy, but there are Roman remains all around the vicinity-, for the Romans mined on the Great Orme for copper, and of course they built the very important camp of Conovium, now called Caerhun, a few miles to the south- west. In the first half of the sixth century Maelgwyn Gwynedd, Prince of Ncrth Wales, and sometimes called King of Deganwy. es- tablished a fortress there, and is said to have confined Prince Elphin, patron of the bard Taliesin, in the dungeon on the top of the rock. It is doubtful whether any portion of Maelgwyn's fortifications remains. More information is obtainable in regard to the Normans who came up tc Deganwy, and were repulsed several times, their chief commander being Robert of Rhuddlan, nephew and favourite of Hugh Lupus, Earl of Chester. This was in the reign of William L, and Robert held the Castle of Deganwy ior a time and was killed in the neighbourhood in 1088 by King Griffith ap Cynan. The Castle of Deganwy was taken from the Welsh and retaken over and over again, and although the early Norman work there would be of wood, the extensive remains of masonry at present existing date from late Norman times. In 1243 the army of Henry III. reached Deganwy, and this was the occasion when the English Parliament granted a special 40s. tax on every knight's fee, this assessment being known in English history as the Scutage of Gannock (another name for Deganwy). In 1252 Henry III. granted a charter to Deganwy, creating there a free borough, 32 years before the grant of the charter to Aberconway. In 1263 the Castle was taken by Prince Llewelyn ap Griffith, and was totally destroyed in a military sense.

Dr. Melland said he was informed that in fact his wife did warn the young woman to keep out of danger before she went out that morning. A BOATMAN'S PROMPTITUDE. Charles W. Moss, a Llandudno boatman, deposed that he was out fishing in a boat well inside the pier opposite the place where the accident occurred. First he heard a scream, and then he looked and saw a woman and child rolling in a zigzag way down the grassy slope they had then fallen down the cliff. He and the man with him got the anchor up and pulled ashore. He saw the little girl, Norah, in a dangerous place, and he. climbed up to her and brought her down. The spot at which the accident occurred was about midway between the toll- gate and Pen Lewyn. The grass was very slippery, and theie was no doubt that the nurse and children had got into a very peril- ous spot. The elder girl had moved to a more safe position when he reached her, but she was above an old quarry, and he was afraid of her falling. When he got her down she asked for a drink of water. VICTIM'S DESPAIRING CRY. Kate Evans, nurse, employed by Mr. Joseph Owen, Gloddae.th,street, Llandudno, said that she was returning home from the first point on the Marine Drive when she heard a body falling, and she saw it was a woman. She he.ard her cry, Will someone help me?" A little later the body drc.pped into the road from the scree, and a moment later the little girl iolied down. The nurse fell within a yard of the perambulator which the witness was wheeling. The little girl noamed after she alighted on the drive, but the nurse never moved. The witness, when the first effect of the shock she received had passed off, ran for help. A woman she met promised to look after her children while she did so. Another woman was sitting on a seat a little higher up the drive, and the witness called to her, but she took no notice. After a time this woman came to look at the dead body, and then went back to her seat. She did northing. The Coroner That is rather remarkable. Sergeant T. J. Richards described the in- juries which had caused the death of Plant, and added that ne climbed up to the foot of the cliff, where he found the hats of th-e nurse and the little girl, as well as a ribbon and a hair pad. There was evidence of the I bodies having fallen there and bounded down the scree. UNSUITABLE BOOTS. Inspector OWC!' add.cd that the woman had worn high-heeled boots, the soles of which were quite smooth. The Coroner said it was clear the accident was due to the inexperience of this young woman. The people who lived at Llandudno or in the neighbourhood were aware of the very dangerous character of the grassy slopes of the mountains, And these were exceed- ingly dangerous last Friday. One did not know how many hairbreadth escapes the nurse had during the climb until the fatal s^p occurred. The accident was a typical one. He was glad to say that the little girl who also fell with her was living, and had no bones broken. She was suffering from shock, and possibly she would recover. The Great Orme and the Little Orme were a gieat acquisition tc Llandudno, but they were a source of danger to inexperienced persons; and he did not know whether the Llandudno people could do anything to put I up warnings that the grassy declivities were so risky, or whether it would do any good if -tich A i such warnings were put jp. The jury found that death was due to an accidental fall and on the motion of the Foreman ;Mr. Reeves Hughes), seconded by the Rev. Richard Roberts, a vote of condol- ence with the 'nurse's relatives was passed, as well as of sympathy with Dr. Melland, and of hope that his little child would soon recover. Dr. Melland acknowledged the vote, and expressed his thanks to the police for their great promptness, and to Moss for the way in which V climbed the mountain at con- siderable risk to himself to rescue the elder girl. Colonel Phillipi, one of the jurors, sug- gested that the conduct of Moss should be brought to the notice of the Royal Humane Society.
