NORTHOP. DEATH OF CAPTAIN LE GALLAIS. — The funeral took place at Northop Churchyard on Tuesday of Captain le Gallais, of iynycalan, a well-known local gentleman. For some years he had resided in the locality, and was very well known and respected. His wife died only a month ago. TELEGRAPH.—A very welcome addition to the postal facilities of Northop has just been made by an extension of the telegraph to the village. The telegraph office was opened to the public on Wednesday, when the Rev. Canon Atkinson, Highfield Hall, who first agitated for the improvement, took the first opportunity of sending a message to the Postmaster-General thanking him in the name of the people of Northop for the extension. It is believed that the telegraph will prove a great boon to the village. Already quite a number of messages have been sent and received. THE NEW VicAF.The living of Northop, vacant through the death of the Rev. Canon Richardson, M.A., has been offered by the Bishop of 6t. Asaph to, and accepted by, the Rev. Clement Todd Davies, M.A., vicar of Rhosesmor. Mr. Davies's record is a good one. He was a scholar of Jesus College, Oxford, B.A. 1876, M.A. 1879, ordained deacon 1881, and priest in 1882, by the Bishop of St. Asaph. He held the post of curate of Bala from 1881 to 1882, senior curate of Rhyl from 1882 to 1889 under the late Rev. Canon Richardson, then vicar of Rhyl, and latterly vicar of Northop. Mr. Davies is exceedingly popular at Rhosesmor, where he has laboured as Vicar for the last nine years, and great regret is felt at his removal. He has been the means of restoring the church and enlarging the schools at a considerable outlay and expense. Mr. Davies may be termed a moderate Evangelical. He is a very able preacher and an excellent visitor, and Northop may fairly be congratulated on having so worthy a successor to the late highly esteemed vicar.
