SPORTS AND PASTIMES. (By an Old Hand). POOTBALL. The Amateurs. have at last broken through their spell of bad luck, and on Saturday proved that they are capable of -better things than they have shewn in previous home matches. The occasion was a. game in the Welsh Amateur Cup .Compe,t,ili.on, and their opponents, Llan- rwst, who had defeated the Amateurs two .Saturdays previously by two goals to nil 'at Llanrwst, came to the Council Field full of confidence, by reason of that victory. The start was delayed half-an-hour, pending the arrival of the referee, Mr Williams, of Holywell, but when hostili- ties did commence, the home, team at, once showed; up well, and kept the, ball well in the Llanrwst territory. But at the same .time they did not look much like scoring. However, the, unexpected, happened. .Jimmy Parry sent in a lovely shot, which was turned over thei bar, and from the resulting corner Welch tipped the ball into the net, and Llandudno were one up. After1 this the, pressure was maintained, but what with Flood getting offside, and one or two easy chances; going begging, no further goals, were forthcoming. Welch was particularly prominent at, this time among the forwards, and was quits as much a,s, the, opposing centre-half could manage, and sometimes! a, bit more. A .change then, came' over the scene, and Llanriwst began to make things hum at the other end, and R. Lunt had to save twice in quick succession, but was equal to- all demands until a, foul just outside the penalty line, when he was. beaten by a low shot. This possibly might have been saved, but why the, home players allowed the visitors to have a, clear shot, at goal I do not, know. This was al,l the scoring in the, first half, the only remaining inci- dent of notel being arsplendid shot by Georgia Davies, which just cleared the b.ar by about, an inch. This was hard lines for Georgie, a,s it was a, splendid effort from about thirty yards range. oll, Welch finding himself too well watched in the. centre, went outside left, in the second1 half, and it, turned out to be a very judicious move, as playing with great dash he soon became a, thorn in the sidio of the, Llanrwst defence. Not many minutss had elapsed ere he. had. forced a, corner, and taking the kick 'himself he placed the, ball beautifully across the goal mouth, and Jacob Williams did the rest, and' gave, the Amateurs the lead again. A third goal followed quickly, this time from a centre by Welch, which was cleverly turned into the net by J. D. Roberts. Thus Welch had something to say in the whole of the. three goals allowed the home team. Llanrwst then: woke up to .desperate position, and made gallant efforts, to get, on more even terms, but ther home defence proved sound, and time was called with the score' unaltered. Both teams had a, gc.al disallowed for offside, but the referee's decision in the, Llan- dudno goal was a, very doubtful one. However, all's well that ends well. ■+M- -J*- ><>• V V The home team, were evidently on their n-ietLt,la,, and were. the' better lot, all through. This, was especially noticeable in the half-backs. The home! trio were in grim earns,st, and stuck to their men like terriers, Georgie Davies being the pick, .and was perhaps as good a naia.-Ii as any on thei field. He was closely followed by Jimmy Parry, whose plav was generally admired, while Jacob Williams played up to his usual form. The backs on this occasion mads no very palpable mis- takes, W. Roberts in the first half tackling and kicking well, but Lunt in the second half saved cleverly. X & The forwards were not quite. so satis- factory, therei being too much of a, tendency to get offside, which proved fatal to several good chances. The right T wing pair had a good, understanding be- tween themselves, but did, not swing the I ball across, -often, 'enough, but. 1$8 the- quintette had not played together; before much is excusable', and with a little more I practice they should form a useful lot. Although beaten the visitors were by no means disgraced, and; were well served by their goal-keeper, who, made some very good saves, and no blame; could be attached to him for either of the three goals scored. The following represented Lla,ndudn,c,: -Goal, R. Lunt; backs, W. j Rberts- and J. Lunt; half-backs, Jacob Williams, G. Davies, and J. Parry; for- wards, Welch, Settle, T. Flood, D. J. Roberts, and J. D. Roberts. t.-I In the same' competition a match was played between Portmadoc .M1.d Rhyl at the first-named town. The Portites gave on; of those brilliant exhibitions they keep in reserve for home matches, and won by no less than ten goals to nil.. In tlhe same i competition Bangolr and Colwyn Bay played a drawn game, of one goal each. & & # Another Llandudno club, "The Oswalds," were, also engaged on Saturday. The venue was Bettwsycoed, the visitors prov- ing successful by four goals to one. Per- haps the secretary or some other offici.al of this club will communicate* particulars of the games for insertion in this column. £ On Wednesday the following team will do duty for the Wednesday Club against the St. David's F.Ci.: -Goal, Davielsl; backs, T. Hughes, W. Lunt; half-backs, W. G. Jones., Richardson and Barnes,; forwards, A. H. Williams, W. L. Roberts, Newton, W. P. Owen., J. L. Williams. Play to commence at, 2-30. X # HOCKEY. The Hockeyites! were again on the; win- ning side on. Saturday last, and: that by a wide margin. The visitors to the Cricket- Field on this occasion were the Port- madoc playerss, and there, was a, fair com- pany of spectators to- witness what proved to be a hard and fast, game. Bevington was again in fine, form, and in the first quarter of an hour had placed the ball in the, net, three times. The game was not as -one-sided as the scorel would go to prove, Humphreys, the home goalkeeper, being kept fairly well occupied -at times' and making some good saves. Only once was he beaten, a beauti- ful shot by Wilson finding out a, weak spot. In the meantime Llandudno had added; three more goals to their score, .0 two by Bevington and one by Short. Llandudno Club will be well repre- sented in the trial match, Eastl v. West, from which the eleven to represent. North Wales, will be, chosen, the men chosen being Humphreys, Anthony, Connah, E. B. Turner, H. Short, and C. Bevington- I six out of eleven. # The home Club will have, their powers. tested to the utmost to-day, when Chester will be the visiting team, play to com- mence at 2 30. NOTES. [By PEL DROED]. I OLD TIME NOT J 3. The old time notes of footer twenty years ago, which appearad last, week, have resulted in, my relieving several letters, not, only locally, but from distant towns1, and the, writers' invariably, like "Oliver Twist," of blessed memory, are all asking for mora. I will endeavour to comply with their several requests at an early date, meanwhile my time ressrved for sport is fully occupied with the much- talked of. & # RUSSELL WEDNESDAY H.H. CUP. I have, received this week final con- firmation from Mr Stanley Russell that he will offer a silver cup for competition between Wednsday Half Holiday teams the North Wales coast, and as far as I can ses now the first round will be played early in the- New Year, the sezsii-fmal and final only to be played at Llandudno. Locally the receipts of the gate's, after pay- ing for the preliminary expenses of print- ing, postages, etc., will be devoted to charity; the teams competing in other towns will of course please' themselves, but I feel confident that they will receive much warmer support, if they fellow in the 1 above' footsteps. I THE COMMITTEE. The Committee of management is com- posed of well-known: local entjbuiasts, and will be duly announced. I may ,say that no member is, connected with any local club either as a player or committee man, and it is so composed as to give the fullest possible assuranc61 of its independ- ence. The h.on. secretary is Mr Arthur R. Hughes, 10, T'udno Street, and local teams intending to compete should at cnce send in their application for parti- culars. of rules, regulations, anl penalties, etc. Therei will bel a nominal entrance fee, but by no means prohibitive. There There are; several knotty points that have already been propounded, such as, "What constitutes a player"? This is answered' by the title, "Wednesday Half Holiday Footballers," which includes those who are bonarfide shop assistants, or masters. Members; of those teams affiliated with the '11, Wales Association, will be barred from taking part, from the simple fact, tha!t the Russell Cup, although under the Welsh Association Rules, will not be affiliated thereto, for obvious reasons. Whilst having the greatest respect for the Welsh Association and Parent Society in England, I do consider that the latter, bearing in mind their enormous wealth, should do something more- for charity than they do. What is to pre- vent, them purchasing a ground for the English finals, to bel played upon, and sub- leting it for all kinds of sport. If they did carry out a, scheme on something like these lines the balance at, the end; of the year would be enormous, and charities far and near would largely benefit. I understand that the. Crystal Palace ground has been, or is about to be leased for five years for the finals. I have entered my humble protest against such an arrange- ment, and forwarded it to. the right quar- ters, but ;do not for a, moment, consider that any scheme other than that pro- pounded by one of the Council will be con. sidered. But- to return to' the Russell Cup, shop assistants will bei encouraged to take part in a, competition of this; nature, knowing that they will meet with more of their equals in footer knowledge, it would be manifestly unfair to ask them. to compete against teams, some members of which make a living out -of it, and, that is what would happen if left for open com- petition. THE! OSWALDS. The Oswalds, a, clever little team, con- taining many very promising players, are in a very despondent state from the fact that they cannot find a, football ground. They are not rolling in wealth, and if any kindly disposed field owner could see his wav toi grant them the; use, of any corner of his- land for a, playing pitch, at a nominal -sum, it would be greatly appre- ciated. That there are player's of some calibre in their ranks is proved from the fact that they beat Bettwsycoed on their own ground by four goals to nil. I hope the above appeial will not be in vain, for I consider if lads of the age of the Oswalds' team are. anxiousi to engage In. football, as a pastime, they ought to be encouraged, and, judging from the speeches1 I have recently read, delivered by men in high places, I am not alone, though as' a nation we, axe not entirely agreed. PEL DROED. NORTH WALES COAST FOOTBALL LEAGUE. A committee meeting of the North Wales Coast Football League was; held at the Wicklow Ijjtotel, Bangor, on Monday evening. Mr T. 0.

MATRIMONIAL TROUBLES OF A NURSERYMAN. DESPERATE STRUGGLE IN A GARDEN. The domestic relations between Charles Frederick Jackson, The Vinery, and his wife, were, again the subject of enquiry before the local magistrates on Monday, when Elizabeth Jackson charged her hus- band with assaulting her on the previous Thursday evening at their "home" in Llangwstenin. There: was also a cross- summons ag,a,inst the wife. Mr H. Knee- shaw presided over a. full bench of magis- trates, Mr J. J. Marks appearing for Mrs Jackson, and Mr R. S. Chamberlain re- presenting the, husband. At Conw,ay a few weeks ago Mrs Jackson applied for a separation order, alleging persistent. cruelty, but the, case was dismissed. Correspondence afterwards passed be- tween the pair, and on the 9th of Novem- ber Mrs Jackson returned home to her husband. The following day both came to Llandudno, and towards evening started home toget-er. Mrs Jackson's story as given on Mon- day was- that as they were driving home her husband accused her of stealing from him bed linen, cutlery and other goods of the value of £ 10, and of indulging in drink excessively. At, this she, demanded to be put down at the Junction Station, and was driven there. From the: I Junction she went to Liverpool and made arrangements for commencing business in greengrocery at Seaforth. Before finally settling she determined to make one more attempt at coming to an understanding with her husband, and the evening of the 17th found her at the door of the cottage, Mr Jackson was at home, and when he saw who it was, according to Mrs Jack- son, rushd at her and struck her on the face, neck and eye, concluding with three) or four blows on the, mouth. Having j returned to Llandudno for the night, she went to Conway the foll-owing day to take out a summons. Jackson followed her to the police office, and wa's so violent there that th\ Clerk in charge had to ask him t,o leave the premises. From the Clerk's office she was followed to the house of a neighbour named Mrs Williams, who had asked her to have a. cup of tea, and there he said to her, "If you come to my house again without permission I'll do for you." Cross-examined by Mr Chamberlain, Mrs Jackson said she, had not told her husband she would come home if he made a settlement on her. She could not rely on Mr Jackson's promises. Being pressed by Mr Chamberlain, however, she ad- mitted that she did not mean to come home unless an agreement as to the pro- perty was drawn out. She had done a man's work in the business, and con- sidered herself entitled to a, share. She could not, explain how Mr Jackson came by his black eye. She saw it at Conway the day after the struggle. Dr. Nicol gave evidence as to the bruises he saw on Mrs J.ackson. Mrs: Williams, the neighbour at whose cottage Mrs Jackson had tea the day fol- lowing the assault, gave evidence of Mr Jackson; following his wife' there, and the conversation which ensued, but saw noth- ing of what happened the. previous day. Zachariah Jones, labourer, Gwstenin Farm, said that as passing the: cottage he s.aw Mrs Jackson crying. She asked him ¡ to, see her past the farm. Mr Jackson called her names, ad he saw him push her against the wall. Witness went with Mrs Jackson, whose hair was al-I pulled down, as far as the, Junction. Mr Chamberlain submitted that it was patent to all that Mrs Jackson having failed to get a separation order at Conway had returned to her husband in order to get him. to assault her that she, might re- new the application. He called Mr Jack- son, whose version wa.s- that hearing some- one at the door he called out, "Is it you f' as he had engaged a house-keeper and was I expecting her. Turning round he saw that it was his wife, and he went t-o her to stop her entering, and. there was a struggle between. them until he got her through the garden gate, when he released her. He got a black e.y61 in the, struggle, and she pulled out, soma of his whiskers. He believed that if he had let: her in that night she would have robbed and killed him. Cross-examined: It was all lies that he said he would do for his wife. The magistrates retired- to consider their decision, and on their return dis- missed both summonses.
REVIEWS. C. B/S CHRISTMAS NUMBER. The Christmas number of "C. B. Fry's Magazine" is beyond all doubt not only the best issue of this popular publication, but it, will rank as one of the finest Christmas numbers of the year. In its 130 pagers there; is not a single item or para- graph that, is not ably written and care- fully selected for its- topical interest. First and foremost among the articles is one written by Mr Fry himself, on the famous amateur foothall organisation the Corinthians, and every footballer will find in this feature many anecdotes that will go to lighten these foggy days. The story of the Corinthians, with its sixteen original portraits of famous past and pre- sent players, is itself well worth sixpence. Another striking item in the magazine is an intimate caracter sketch of Charles Dickens, the father of Christmas, written by one who know him well, and illus- trated in a pculiarly effective manner. "The Captain" for December keeps up its reputation for bumping Christmas numbers in the shape of a plentiful sup- ply of sasona ble fiction. There are six short- stories in addition to the lengthy instalments of the two popular serials, "The Dulrer," by R. S. Warren Bell, and "The Head of Kay's," by P. G. Wode- house'. One of them "The Passage of the Styx," by E. H. S. Barnes-Austin, with which the number opens, is the mst ¡ powerful and dramatic school story we have read for some time. "The Spectre at the Casement" is also a, school story of topical interest. "The Coming of Stan- borough" is the third in a series of ori- ginal stories of American school life, bv F. L. Morgan, and "The Power of the Pen" is in Stuart Wishing's best style. The "Far West" tale this month records some exciting buck-hunting adventures in I the. OwTl Creek Mountains, told in Frank- lin Welles Calkins' breezy manner. "Rolf" is a, Christ-masti-de incident of Viking days, from the pen of Bart Kennedy. The sixth part, of "Newnes' Technolo- gical and Scientific Dictionary" will have a, great interest for many craftsmen as well as for the abstruse scientist. Amongst the subjects dealt with are The' lathe, its construction .and uses, lace making both by hand machine, the laws of chemical combination, le,a,ther manu- facture, linen manufacture, the lique- faction of gases, lubricants, lea,d and lead compounds, the loom (with diagrams showing the construction and shuttle action), manganese compounds and mag- nesium compounds, together with an almost endless number* of definitions and shorter articles; the whole so fully and clearly illustrated that the knowledge is given in a. form that can be clearly under- stood by anyone who can read. I A DICTIONARY OF GREAT BRITAIN AND IRELAND. The latest part of the 'Survey Gazetteer' of the British Isles," which Messrs George Newnes, Limited, are issuing in sixpenny parts, commences with Sunder- land and finishes with Vale E.a suburb of Longton in Staffordshire. Amongst the longer articles are those dealing with Surrey, Sussex, and Thames. One of the maps, which as usual are of great utility and beauty, shows the ad- ministra,tive counties and county boroughs, and another is devoted to the coal and iron mines; in the latter, which is one of great interest, are shown, by special colouring, the coal measures ex- posed, those covered by the different, rock strata, and the submarine, workings, as well as the various ironworks. The work, as will be seen, nears com- pletion, and as it is the only mp-to-date one of its kind, it cannot fail to find a place in every reference library in the kingdom.
PENRHYNSIDE BOYS' BRIGADE. A VERY SUCCESSFUL GATHERING. On Wednesday, 16th inst., a- very suc- cessful gathering of the Boys' Brigade (1st Co. Penrhynside-) was held at Pen- rhynside, in the Schoolroom attached to the Welsh Wesleyan Chapel. The pro- ceedings commenced with an excellent tea, kindly provided by the following ladies and gentlemen —Th e Misses Hindle, Mr and Mrs Reeves Hughes, Mr Borley (London), Mrs Lintern, Mrs and Miss Lewis Lloyd, Mrs Arthur, the Misses Richardson and friends The room in which the, boys. drill had been trans- formed, presenting quite a, Christmastide appearance with the masses of flowers and evergreens on walls an,d tables; in fact, ¡ the friends who had taken this depart- mentJ in hand had distinguished them- selves in the taste and attractiveness dis- played in the decorations. After singing "Grace" the; newly-en- rolled Brigade proceeded to dispatch the tempting-looking comestibles, provided for them, while the helpers almost, vied with one another in their he,arty service. The tea was followed by an interesting little programme, .which commenced with hymn singing and a, short prayer. Then came the event, of the evening, the pre- sentation of the uniforms, etc. As each officer called up his boys they were pre- sented with their caps, belts, and haver- sacks by Mrs Lewis Lloyd; they also re- ceived their cards of membership, which were handed to them by Miss Lewis Lloyd, who read aloud the well-known words of the Brigade, "Remember thy Creation in the days of thy youth." "In all thy ways) acknowledge Him and He shall direet- thy paths," and impressed upon each boy the all-important thought of being a soldier of the Lord Jesus Christ. Short addresses, were given by Miss Hindle, Mr Hughes and Miss Lewis Lloyd, followed by Mr Richardson. (capt), who spoke upon the, object of the Brigade. After some hearty clapping, expressive of the Boys' thanks for their evening! entertainment, the meeting closed with the sinking of the Doxology. So ended zn -an enjoyable and most successful evening. It is hoped that, this new Brigade will be of real benefit to the toys. At present they meet; once a week on Wednesday evenings, but it is hoped .there will be further developments as the Company settles down to work. Anyone interested in it and wishing to hear any particulars concerning it or to subscribe- to the fund can .address their communications to Mr Arthur Richardson (capt.), 18, Augusta Street or Mrs and Miss Lewis Llovd, Northfield, Craigydon.
HIS TICKET. The passengers in a, first-class railway carriage, on arriving at the termiuus, were addressed with the customary request:- "Gentlemen, show yur tickets." Among them was one rather showily attired. He produced a ticket-of-le.ave.
A FUTURE LIBERAL CANDIDATE. The members of the Montgomery Boroughs Liberal Association have pre- sented Mr and Mrs A. J. Joic-cy with a silver inkstand and an album on the occa- sion of their recent marriage. Mr Joicey is the eldest son of Sir James Joicey, M.P., at whose Welsh seat, Gregvnog Hall, the presentation took place. Re- turning thanks, Mr Joicey said that though he had -not taken much aciive part in politics hitherto, he had no hesita- tion in declaring himself a Free Trader, and later on he hop-ed to find time to enter the political arena.
