It was reported at a meeting of the Warrington T'own Council recently that the Mhiseum Committee had received a present of fleas, and Councillor Ashcroft caused roars of laughter by protest-Ing and saying he thought they had fleas enough in the town. "They are stuffed," said one conciliatory councillor, but Councillor Ashcroft insisted that they should be re- ferred back. They will go to the museum, instead.
I LONDON GOSSIP. EASTERTIDE SUPERSTITIONS. Some of the old saying andi customs of Eastertide are very curious, and it must be added, appear to have little to recom- mend them. There is nothing inappro- priate in adopting the egg as the emblem of the Resurrection, which has come down to us from very ancient times, but it was also thought that eggs laid on Good Fri- Z, day would extinguish fires. The hazel must be cut on Good Friday to be effectual as a divining rod, and such a twig, it was though t had the power to strike ahsent, persons, whilst a branch of the elder tree hung up after sunset, would protect the house from lightning. Then certain eat- ables, such as herb pudding, and other dishes, were eaten on Good Friday, in accordance with the rule that all our fes- tivals are celebrated! more or less with something to eat. Birds too are associated with E'astertide traditions, one of which represents a swallow flying round the Cross, and another relates that, during the fateful ordeal a robin received a drop of the sacred blood, which for ever colored its breast, and preserved it from want in winter time. MRS ASQUITH. It, is many years since a, Prime Minister was so fortunate as Mr Asquith in having a wife to take up t,he social duties of her position. The ill-health of the late Lady Campbell-Bannerman prevented her from doing much entertaining, whilst Mr Bal- four had to get his sister to act, as hostess for himl. The late Lady Salisbury too had no great liking for the social side of politics, and the late Mrs Gladstone had the weight of advancing years, to contend with, when her husband la,st held office. Mrs Asquith, who, as all the world knows, was Miss Margaret Tennant, was married in 1894, and the late Mr Wi. E. Gladstone was present at her wedding. She has two children, a little son and daughter, and Mr Asquith has also a, grown up family of five, his his first wife. M|r II aid an e-— the Minister for W,arwa,s Mr Asquith's best man, at his marrage in 1894. It was one of the great Society and Parliamentary weddings of the time, and Mrs Asquith was as popular as a bride as she is a hostess. She has all the frank spontaniety of manner, which enables her to share and delight in the enjoyment of her guests, which is more than half the secret of suc- cessful entertaining. THE STAGE IN THE, MIDDLE AGES. The discussion as to who was the first woman to appear as an actress on a pub- lic stage in London raises a question that has never been settled. In Queen Eliza- beth's time, and also in the subsequent reigns of James I., and Charlesl., the em- ployment of actresses wa,s regarded as im- proper, and female characters were taken by men. Under Charles II. the theatre became more popular, and the Merry Monarch saw no reason why women should not act on ,the stage, as was already common in France and Italy. His bosom friend, Thomas Killigrew, who was of kindred low and coarse wit, and was the author of several profligate plays, seems to have had most to do' with introducing women actresses on the stage. Pepys, whose diary gives an illuminating history of the period refers to a visit to Killigrew's- theatre on January 3rd, 1661, and also to the fact that it was "the first time that ever I saw women come upon the stage." Acting is, in any case, one of the oldest professions followed by women, and it seems pretty clear that the pioneer was not of sufficient professional repute for history to hand down her identity. WOMEN'S HENSEl OF HONOR. It has often been said that women are more prone to cheating at games than men, but if women are deficient in a sense of honour in such matters it might easily be accounted for in the difference of the early training of hoysand girls. Now- adays this difference is not so' marked as it used to be, but in years gone by, girls were not taught to take games seriously. If a boy did not play fairly he wa,s disgraced and kicked out by his playmates, but it was hardly expected that girls should set up the same standard of honour in their games. That perhaps is why there are women who would not think of reading other people's letters without authority, or listening to conversation not intended for them to overhear, but who, do not scruple to .move the croquet or golf ball, unobserved, to a slightly better position, nothing as they would say, to make any difference. One does not care to follow this subject into the question of cheating at cards, about which equally uncompli- mentary things are said about the feminine sense of honour, but with respect to games generally, there should be no difference between boys and girls, as re- gards the high standard of honouraible conduct that should be set them in school life. STAIR CLIMBING. We are told that there is, no better exercise for graceful poise and balance than going up and down stairs, provided it is done properly. A great many women fall into ungraceful attitudes when stand- ing, sitting, or walking, and the wearing of high heels is a very common cause of incorrect position in walking. One should walk always on the ball of the foot. To walk on the heels jars the whole body, and to walk on the toes presents an affected or mincing attitude. There should be no slouching, crouching, or waddling, but always a straight line from the ears through the shoulders and hips to the

STRUCTURAL ALTERATIONS. The following plans have been present- ed to and considered by the Llandudno Works Committee, namely:- Shed, 68, Mostyn Street, for Mr L. A. Cocker, approved. Additional bedroom, "Fulwell," Con- way Crescent, for Mr Eckersley, approved. Shed, 3, Craigydon Parade, for Miss Parker, aprpoved. Verandah, at "Dharur," Roumania Orescent, for Mr Richard Roberts, ap- proved. Open Staircase, 5, Mostyn Street, for Messrs W. H. Smith and Son, deferred. Three houses, Gladdaeth Street, for Executors of the late Thomas Edge, dis- approved, inasmuch as it is proposed thereby to bring forward the building be- yond the front main wall of the house or building adjacent thereto in Bodhyfryd Road.
BREAD BY WEIGHT. Shadrach Evans, Park Store's, Grove Park, Colwyn Bay, was, charged at Col- wyn Bay on Saturday with selling, on March 27th, a loaf of bread otherwise than by weight, the said loaf not being such as was usually sold under the de- nomination of French or fancy bread or loaves. Mr Artemus Jones, (instructed by Mr T. H. Morgan) appeared for the de- fence. The magistrate (Chancellor Bulke- ley O. Jones presiding) fined the defen- dant- 20s. and costs.
An Irishman, in great fright and haste, rushed into Abernethy's surgery and ex- claimed, "Be dad, the boy Tim has swal- lowed a rat!" "Then, be* dad," said1 the doctor, "tell the boy Tim to swallow a cat."

"Idleness covers a man with rags," says the proverb. An Irish schoolmaster, thinking to improve on this, wrote a copy for one of his boys with the proverb thus altered.—"Idleness covers a man with nakedness." The inhabitants of a pretty large town in the west of Scotland were once amused by the novel appearance of a chimney- sweep, who was seen plodding along with one-half of his face washed, shaved, and trimmed, and the other unshorn and as black as ebony. On being questioned as to his motives for washing half his face, he replied, "Only half the duty's off the soap yet."
FOOTBALL. NORTH WALES COAST CUP.—RE- PLAYED FINAL. GREENFIELD v. HOLYHEAD. EXCITING FINISH TO A KEEN STRUGGLE, ANOTHER DRAW. Whether Holyhead or Greenfield will win the North Wales Coast Cup this year is still a very open question. Holyhead evidently do not intend to let the cup, de- part from their headquarters without a hard struggle. Last year they only beat Llandudno at the third attempt, and this year history has so far repeated itself. There is, however, a great difference in one respect, and that is the challengers this year live to fight a third team with the eleven intact. Last season several of the Llandudno players at the third game were suffering from more or less severe injuries and could by no means do them- selves justice. < The game on Saturday was brimful of exciting incidents. Notwithstanding the rain the pace was fast from the outset, and the ball travelled from end to end with lightning-like rapidity. Of the two Greenfield displayed the better method, and their supporters encouraged them for all they were worth. Their tongues were silenced, however, for a brief space, when O. B. Edwards for Holyhead put in a brilliant 'single-handed' run from miidfield right into the goal- mouth. The downfall of Greenfield citadal appeared inevitable, but to the surprise of all and to his own disgust O. B. lifted the ball well over the bar to the delight of the Greenfield supporters. The superior tactics of the Greenfield forwards began to tell, and Collier was called upon to save shots from all angles. Twice he was beaten before half-time, Pearson doing the trick first with a fast shot from a pass by Petrie. The second came from a free kick, well placed by Funival, which Collier allowed to slip between his hands, and the ball had just enough way on it to roll over the goal line and no more. This was a gift, but on the play the Greenfielders fully de- served their lead of two goals. In the second half Greenfield made the mistake of acting an the defensive, hop- ing the lead of two goals would pull them through. Consequently the Holyhead forwards were continually popping away at goal. The Greenfielders stood the seige well for thirty-five minutes, but at the end of that time the inevitable hap- pened, and from a corner O. B. Edwards made slight amends for his failure in the first half by scoring a beautiful goal with an over-head kick. » < Greenfield attacked strongly after the reverse, but failed to find the net, and Holyhead redoubling their exertions had the pleasure of drawing level within one minute of time, mainly though a miskick by one of the Greenfield backs—a most costly mistake. it An extra half-hour was played, but nothing further was scored, and the game will be replayed for the third time on the Council Field on Saturday. Kick-off at 3-15,p.m. < The game was fought out with great determination, but was free from any glaring or vicious fouls. Of course such excitement prevailing there was bound to be a few infringements of the rule, but to the credit of both sides it should be stated that the players appeared to be animated with a spirit of. sportsmanship pleasant to witness.

THE WRECK.-The Clerk reported to a meeting of the Council in Committee that acting on the instructions of the Works Committee, he had arranged for the sale by public auction on Saturday of the wreck on the foreshore. Mr T. W. Griffith had kindly consented to sell free of charge. The Clerk also read a letter from the Secretary of the Pier Company stating that the Pier Company claimed to have a lien on the wreck for damage occa- sioned by it to the Pier, and that any sale by the Cbuncil would be at their risk and subject to the Company's lien. It was decided that the proposed sale be approved of. 'n"

-.r IT f eet. The stair exercise is no good unless this important rule is strictly observed, and then it is better, for the sake of the stair carpets, to choose other people's stairs for practice. Londoners, at any rate, never need be at a loss in this respect, and the tube railways which offer ■splendid facilities for stair-'climbirig—if the lifts are not made use of—might ad- vertise these as an additional advantage of their routes. b DYED AND PRINTED TUSSORE. It is not very long since tussore was obtainable only in its natural shade. Then came the dyed varieties, which tho-ugh. often pretty seemed a little wrong some- how, and now we are offered printed tussores which are perhaps less desirable still. The favourite background is a soft leaf-green, the patterns being old-world, such as the new delaines are shewing. The fact remains, however, that the best dressed women prefer tussore in its natural shade, and refuse to be tempted with these dyed and printed varieties. GREEN "UNLUCKY." The superstition attached to the wear- ing of this color at weddings has passed away, and nowadays we don green as free- ly as any other color for these particular ceremonies. The different slfides of parsley, ivy, and watercress green may be said to lead, and the wonderful manner in which all blend strikes even the casual observer. Last year, blue was in high favour for wedding apparel, and the way in which the many hues "screamed" at each other was frequently noticeable, more especially so at the Royal wedding at Wood Norton. THE LONG .SLEEVE* No doubt throughout the summer the elbow sleeve will find a place on the ready made blouse, but the well-dressed have already passed the notion by. The day sleeve of the moment has very little ful- ness at the top, and it moulds the arm right down to the wrist, where: it curves out gently, thus forming a ,cup-like frame for the knuckles. In thin fabrics this sleeve is gathered or "folded," the some- what narrow folds falling one over the other from shoulder to wrist. VIOLENT EXTREIMIEIS. As as only to be expected, we have rushed from the no-collar scheme to the high wired band, and even this arrange- ment is not satisfying to leading modistes, who are edging their very high and closely wired collars with inch-wide frills. To the few these frills suit, they prove eminently becoming, but alas, only the very few can wear them successfully. The majority of us possess necks neither long or slender enough for the mode, when the effect is dowdy and frumpish in the extreme.
