HOLD. DEAN HOLE.—The Dean of Rochester, who is at present visiting at Colomendy, preached at the parish church on Sunday evening. There was a crowded congregation, and the venerable gentleman, who selected as his text 5th chap. Amos 8th verse, gained the undivided attention of his hearers by reason of the eloquence and fervour of his discourse. FOOTBALL CLUB.—The annual meeting was held on Friday, at the Royal Oak Hotel, Mold, Mr. Edwin Roberts presiding over a good attendance of members and supporters. It was reported there was an adverse balance of X6 odd, but with carefulness it was considered this might soon be wiped off. It was decided to call the club the Mold Town Football Club in future, dropping the title of Red Stars.' Regarding the question of ground, a small com- mittee was appointed to inspect and report to an adjourned meeting next Tuesday. The balance sheet was criticised in a friendly way, and the accounts were passed. There was a general feeling in favour of joining the Wirral League this season, as it was thought better fixtures would be the result, and this course was agreed upon. Both the former secretaries being unable through residence from town to again officiate, it was resolved that Messrs. Morgan Morgans and Osborne Williams should be approached in the first place. Failing their acceptance of the office, other persons were mentioned as suitable for the vacancies. SUSPECTED CASE OF SWINE FEVER.—Scarcely have the pig dealers transacting business in the Flintshire markets realised the revocation of the Swine Fever Order of the Board of Agri- culture before they are confronted with an event which may result in renewed restrictions. For the first time since before Christmas pigs were permitted at the Grosvenor-street Auction Mart on Wednesday, and while the sale was in progress an individual appeared at the gate with a pig which he desired to enter for sale. The animal was obviously unwell, and the official at the gate very properly refused it admittance. The man returned to the town, but was followed by a dealer who, it is alleged, purchased the pig, which he smuggled over the railings of the mart and into one of the pens. The animal was sold in the ordinary way, but shortly afterwards the auctioneer was for the first time apprised of the condition of the pig. A veterinary surgeon was sent for, who slaugh- tered the pig, and pronounced the case to be one of swine fever. The local police were then communicated with, and the remaining animals —aboat 90 in number—were detained. Our correspondent, writing yesterday (Tuesday), says :—Our readers will be pleased to hear that after some delay the Board of Agriculture have decided that the case submitted to them was not one of swine fever, and there will therefore be no necessity for renewing the restrictions imposed by the swine fever order. The news was received with considerable satisfaction by local pig dealers, and the porcine guests at the Grosvenor-street Auction Mart took leave of their host on Friday last.
