Chester Historical Pageant Notes I --0- Much pleasure is felt by all interested i in the coming Chester Pageant that King George has intimated his approval of the I Pageant being held on the dates original- ly arranged-July 1.8 to 23. It will be re- membered that their Majesties, King I George and Queen Mary as Prince and Princess of Wales, have already shown favour to the Chester Pageant by giving it their patronage. It is hoped that this mark of favour will be graciously contin- ued now that they have ascended the throne. There is little doubt that in so loyal a city as Chester it would be special- ly appreciated. His Grace the Duke of Westminster has taken an active interest in the Pag- eant, having consented as Lord Lieuten- ant of the County to be the President he has been generous in his donations and j subscriptions; and to give the Pageant the best setting that Chester could offer 1 he placed his beautiful park at Eaton at the disposal of the Committee, a large meadow adjoining the drive having been selected for the display, j +
w.s-f'o- OUR LONDON LETTER. [From Our Special CorrespondeM.) It is not often that an appointment to bilrh office under the Crown is hailed with such general approval as the selection of Sir Charles Hardinge as Viceroy of India has called forth. The appointment is the more interesting because it is in no sense a poli- tical one. It has been the custom of the Government of the day to bestow the great positions in the Empire upon their own sup- porters, more or less as a prize for political services, though of course taking into con- sideration first of all the question of fitness for the post. But Sir Charles Hardinge is not a politician. The public knows really very little about him, though those respon- sible for tiie appointment know a great deal. As permanent head of the Foreign Office, he has been one of those great officials who, according to some people, constitute the really effective Government, while Cabinet Ministers are only the ornamental heads, of departments. Be that as it may, there is every confidence amongst those who know that he will make an excellent Viceroy. Be- fore the appointment was announced there had been a plentiful crop of rumours as to who would succeed Lord Minto, and in some quarters there was a strong feeling in favour of Lord Kitchener. But there are objections against appointing a soldier to such a post, and in any case Lord Kitchener could hardly have been spared from the Army. A fatal accident has drawn attention again to the dangerous practice of cycling in the City. It is a marvel to those who have seen cyclists riding in the very thickest of the traffic that fatal accidents are not of daily, nay, hourly occurrence. Many an ac- complished trick cyclist would decline to at- tempt the feats which are all in the day's work of distributors of evening papers, who seem to the looker-on to spend their days in constant peril of losing their lives. Carry- ing heavy bundles of papers on their backs they speed along slippery streets, swerving and turning- and threading their way be- tween 'buses and motor-cars and heavy drays tween 'buses and motor-cars and heavy drays in a fashion calculated to make the hair of nervous persons stand upright. But it is possible to get used to most things, and the cyclists seem to be as cool and as uncon- scious of danger as though they were riding along a straight country road with no other vehicles in sight. All the same, I fancy there can hardly be many more dangerous callings than theirs. Often the slightest mistake or a momentary indecision would mean death to them. A striking illustration of the way not to do a thing has been provided by the West- minster City Council in connection with the extension of the Mall. The finest feature of the work is the triple arch at the Charing Cross entrance, and for some reason or other they have contrived matters so that nobody shall be able to obtain a satisfactory view of the structure. The roadwav leading to it be- tween the buildings is only sixty-six feet wide, with the result that the wings of the arches are hidden away behind the houses. It would be a pity if this should be a perma- nent arrangement, and fortunately there is now some hope that steps will be taken to make a more dignified approach, and to make the whole of the fine structure visible from the Strand. The London County Council have declined to contribute to the paving of the roadway unless its width is extended to eighty-eight feet, and their action has led to the suggestion for a conference on the matter. Of course, there is the question of expense to be considered, but certainly it should not be permitted to stand Ü11 the way of the adequate completion of the scheme. There was an amusing bit of Parliamen- tary comedy the other day in connection with the Ecclesiastical Disorders Bill, which was down for second reading, and might have stood a chance of passing but for the fact that it did not come on until a few minutes before the time at which the sitting must end. There are other ways of killing a cat besides drowning it, and there are other ways of hindering the progress of a Bill through the House of Commons than by attacking it upon its merits and defeat- ing it. In this instance the trick was done by criticising other measures which were dealt with before the particular measure came on. Some members who desired' that the Ecclesiastical Disorders Bill should not get its second reading developed quite a surprising interest in Bills which otherwise would have received scant attention. They moved amendment after amendment to the Scottish Police Superannuation Bill and the Norwich Charities Bill, and so the time slipped away. Members saw the game, but it was played strictly according to rule, and the end of it was that the Ecclesiastical Disorders Bill had no chance at all. If one may judge from Mr., Frohman's an- nouncement as to the next repertory season at the Duke of York's Theatre, the season now closing has not been entirely successful. It is evident from the published announce- ment that the plan laid down at first is to be considerably modified. The modification is so considerable as to cut out altogether what is known as the higher drama, and the names of Mr. Bernard Shaw, Mr. Granville Barker, and Mr. John Galsworthy are not mentioned amongst those dramatists whose works will be produced in the next season. There will be plays by Mr. Henry Arthur Jones, Mr. Alfred Sutro, Mr. Maugham, Mr. Haddon Chambers, Mr. Henry James, and Mr. J. M. Barrie, These are a.H good names, of course, but they are in a different school from that of the three playwrights who are -not to appear. It may be taken as fairly certain that the new school does not spell success, or at least not as much success as the other; and that at the Dafcd of York's Theatre, as
\c.II .A Narrow Escape; from Lightning at Legacy. —o— A farmer and two horses had narrow escape from lightning on Saturday week. Messrs Powell, Escivsham Farm, had been engaged in the field and whilst the ho-ses wrre passing an oak tree about two o'clock, a loud report was heard, and a flash of lightning seen. Instantly a shower of soil and leaves fell. One horse fell down, and the other bolted. On ex- amining the spofc it was found that a great portion of the hark on the tree and a branch had been ripped off. The leaves were also scorched, the hedge damaged, and the soil upheaved. An oak tree on the neighbouring farm of Pentre Bvcha.ii, in the occupation of Mr Thomas P.;rry, was also damaged by lightning. *—

At the annual conference of the Nation- al Temperance Caterers' Association at Scarborough on Monday Alderman E Thomas, ex-Mayor of Cardiff, said he had submitted to the Chancellor of the Ex- chequer a resolution, which he now pro- posed to the conference, in favour of earn- estly petitioning the Government in any future rearrangement of taxation to free from duty all articles of food, especially ) such as tea, coffee, and sugar, which had now become articles of absolute necessity, I more particularly to the great mass of the labouring population* Mr Lloyd George sai<S in his reply Anything I might say on the topic of Anything I might say on the topic of your resolution at the present moment would be apt to be misconstrued.

-a.'l'nftw.V'I'II''Itt\ø«:;r_ltr.U\08a,1'r'm:4:1. Death of Mr W. Jones, U Croft Prestatyn. The inhabitants of Prestatyn were greatly shocked on Saturday week last, to learn of the sudden demise of Mr Win Jones, of 11 The Croft," at the Royal In- firmary, Liverpool, whither he went oil the previous Thursday to undergo an op- eration. The operation, which was in itself of minor importance, was according to medical evidence entirely successful, but in a few hours afterwards, he sudden- ly collapsed, and passed away a few min- utes before the arrival of his daughter, who had been huiriedly summoned by wire. The deceased gentleman was born 74 years ago at Rhosllanerchrugog. His brother, Mr John Jones, The Crown, Llandegla, (father of Mrs Owen, Bazaar, Rhos) still lives, and deceased also leaves a son and three daughters to mourn his loss. Shewing an aptitude for teaching, Mr Jones was apprenticed to that profes- sion at the locaf Church School, whence he qualified at the age of twenty-one as a Queen's scholar, and went to St Mary's College, Carnarvon. After two years' residence, he graduated as a ist class teacher. During his scholastic career, he held appointments at Llangollen, Gwer- syllt, and Bodelwyddan. Many of his former scholars now hold important posts both at home and abroad. Since his re- tirement from Bodelwyddan, which took place about nine years ago, he had resid- ed first at Ashdown and later at the Croft. He was a stauuch Churchman, and at the time of his death held the po- sition of Welsh Churchwarden, whilst in politics he was an ardent Conservative of the old fashioned type. The interment took place on Tuesday last at Llanrhaiadr Church.
Doan's Investigations Continued. RUABON WOMAN COMES FORWARD. Our recent announcement, that we were arranging to conduct an enquiry into Doan's numerous local cases, has met with the wide spread appreciation of our readers. To-day a well-known Ruabon resident comes forward and gives her per- sonal experience, which she authorises us to publish for the benefit of others. "I feel better and brighter in every way since using Doan's backache kidney pills, and whenever I can recommend them I will," says Mrs M Jones, who lives at Park-street, Ruabon, I had influenza very badly, and after- wards I suffered terribly with pains in my back and across my loins. When I stoop- ed it was difficult for me to get up again I could'nt sleep well at nights and I was as tired when I got up in the morn- ings as when I had gone to bed. I had bad headaches and dizzy spells. I ajso suffered from urinary disorders and sedi- ment. "A frteod recommended me to try Doan's backache kidney pills and from the first they helped me. Now, I am glad to say my back is better, and the urinary trouble is corrected, f can speak highly of Doan's pills." Over three years later, Mrs Jones said Doan's backache kidney pills cured iite years ago, and I always use the pills with the. best of results, whenever I get any signs of the old troubles. (Signed) Mrs M Jonec." Doan's backache kidney pills are two shillings and nine pence per box, or six boxes for thirteen shillings and ninepence Of all chemists and stores, or post free direct from the Foster-McClellan Co. 8, Wells street, Oxford-street, London, W. Be sure you get the same kind of pills as Mrs Jones had.
Welsh Colliery Dispute. -0- The dispute between the masters and 600 men who have been employed at Bet- tisfield Colliery Bagillt, has assumed ser- ious proportions. The fourteen days' notices to the men terminated on Satur- day it being stated that the proprietors had, determined to stop work unless their de- mands were conceded. On Monday afternoon a large meeting of men heard speeches by officials of the local' branch of the Miners' Federation, and decided that if there was no settlement of the dispute before to- morrow morning they would re- move their tools from the pit. On Tuesday the dtspute was amicably settled, the masters having decided to concede the men's demand for »s§|d per ton in the 5ft level. The waggoners yes- terday were dissatisfied, demanding in- creased wages, but the miners5 agent hav ing held a meeting, they agreed to com- mence work with the colliers last night. During the next fortnight the position will be reviewed by the Miners Federation
