It is most for- tunate that nobody was standing near at j the time. t HARVEST.—The weather, which has been for the last fortnight so wet and bad will greatly affect the corn, which has been cut down, and that which has not been cut, has been beaten down by the heavy rains of the last fortnight. If a spell of dry aed fine weather does not soon put in an appearance the locai farmers will suffer' heavily.

Johnnie Williams, was the star of the Rhos team. Summerhill are re- cognised as an excellent team the locals did wonderfully well and it is hoped that with a little more experience and practice they will be able to hold their own with all comers. A NARROW SHAVE,—As William Hughes, Campbell street, was following his employment on Tuesday night at No 2 pit Hafod Colliery he had a most miracul- ous escape. He had reason to go a little in front of his horse and dram, when, by some tinexplainable cause a heavy fall of roof occurred killing the pony instantan- eously, he escaped with a few scratches on the shoulder. Had he been in his usual place, the shaft' he would have suffered the same fate.

VISIT OF A POPULAR MENAGERIE.— Children big and little, of all ages and both sexes, will be pleased to learn that the popular Sedgwick's Menagerie will j visit Rhos on Wednesday September 7th The show includes many exceptional fea- tures, and, no doubt, great interest will be taken in the tug-of-war between an elephant and thirty men for a cup present- ed by the proprietor. We may confident- | ly state that lovers of natural history can learn more by a two hours' visit to this show than by twelve months of book learning. What a treat, too, for the school children to witness, and to tell i their parents that they have seen the reality in life The whole show is in i a most respectable condition, cleanliness being one of its great characteristics. There is no unpleasant smell whatever, so that the most fastidious need not b afraid to visit the collection. FAREWELL SUPPER.-After an absence of about eleven years from his native place, Robert W Jones, (Cerrig) has been here from South Africa spending a few months holiday.

He also visited Scotland, where his wife is a native of. On Wednesday week a number of his old friends met together at Mrs Robt. Edwards, Denbigh House to an excellent supper previous to his departure to his family at South Africa. A very enjoyable evening was spent.

Correspondence. —<► YOUNG RHOS. To the Editor of the Rhos Herald Sir,—During the course of last week, I chanced to visit Rhos, and I left it with very pleasant memories, and some very unpleasant ones, too. The pleasant ones are mostly concerned with the grown-up people, whom I found to be of the kind- est nature possible. What a pity it is that the rising generation do not attempt to follow in the footsteps or their dads. The children of Rhos as I found them were like hordes of juvenile savages. I like to see healthy horseplay among children, but resent impudence aad un- mannerliness. As I walked along the street, I noticed bands of young people of both sexes hidden in dark doorshops, and no sooner had I passed than several called out names after me. This is a dis- graceful state of affairs, and hard to be- lieve in such a place as Rhos, which has so many traditions to keep up. VISITOR.
Many unsuspected cases in Ruabon. Nothing is more to be feared than kid- ney complaint, because it is often unsus- pected until it has spread dangerous dis- ease throughout the body. There are many unsuspected cases here in Ruabon and if you have any such unmistakable symtoms of kidney complaint as pain in the loins and back, urinary disorders, gravel, dropsical swellings, rheumatic pains, and constant weariness, you should profit by this Ruabon woman's experience Some months ago," said Mrs S J Piper, of Isfryn, Queen St., Brytifield. Ruabon, when speaking of her case, 1, -1 was seized with severe pains in my back -and loins, which bent me nearly double I found great difficulty in stooping, and when I tried to rise again the pain was terrible. Reading of Doan's backache kidney pills and hearing them recommended, I determined to try them. I obtained a box, and even a few doses gave me relief. I continued with the pills until. the pains' had entirely gone, I am glad to say I have had no return of them. I have re- commended Doan's backache kidney pills and shall always do so to all who suffer as I did. (Signed), Sarah J Piper." 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 Mr Piper had.
RHOS TOWN TALK It is said:— That Rhos is to be visited by a first" class menagerie on Wednesday next: when a tug of war contest between an el ephant and thirty Rhos men is to take place. That it is' to be hoped the etepham wonJt turn up his nose at his oppon- ents. That it is eighteen years since he last visit of a good menagerie to Rhos That circuses and menageries, (like" fairs, straw-thatched houses, windmills? • gallantry, and money) are fast slipping out of the life of the country. That a Rhos man went to Liverpool' last week to undergo a coursejof nnJi baths for a pain in the back. What's the-" matter with Rhos mud ? That a fortnight ago, over twenty Rhos people were congregated under the' same roof at a boarding house at Lian- dudno. When the names appeared ity the list of visitors the word Rhosllan erchrugog appeared consecutively twenty" times. All the other names in the same" column paled into insignificance beside- it. That on Wedesday afternoon, a party" of landscape painters set up their easel ir- on the mountain side to paint the moors,^ From the same position, overlooking ibir.- mountain pool, they might easily sketd;1 studies in the nude." That two Rhosites who had decided to'. go to the Isle of Man for their holidays? presented themselves at the booking; office the other morning. One advised^ the other to book tourish as it wa»s"■ cheaper. The other man then demanded an explanation as to how Tories couUf-1 travel cheaper than Liberals.
