WREXHAM. A WINDFALL FOR THE FREE LIBRARY.—The committee of the Wrexham Free Library have received notice from the solicitors of the late Mr. Benjamin Piercy, of Marchweil Hall, who was one of the railway pioneers of North Wales, that the trustees under the will of that gentle- man, who left a large share of his estate to be devoted to charitable objects, had voted a sum of X100 to the Free Library. FATAL PLAYING WITH MATCHES.—At Wrex- ham, on Tuesday, Mr. Wynn Evans, coroner for East Denbighshire, held an inquest on the body of Thomas Price, aged six years, son of Mr. Edward Parker Price, butcher and farmer, Plas Issa, Aberbury, and carrying on business in Bridge-street, Wrexham. On Sunday morn- ing last, deceased was playing with matehes in a bedroom used by the men on the farm. His nightshirt caught fire from a match, and he ran downstairs enveloped in flames, which the servant smothered with an overcoat. The boy was taken off to the Wrexham Infirmary, where he succumbed to shock three hours later. A verdict of 'Accidental death' was returned.—The Coroner said he thought that parents could not be too careful in impressing on their children the extreme danger of playing with matches. TOWN COUNCIL.—At a quarterly meeting, on Tuesday, the Mayor (Mr. Philip Yorke), who presided, before commencing the business asked the members of the Council to pass a vote of sympathy with Lady Morgan in her sad bereavement. Mr. J. Hopley Pierce seconded the resolution, which was supported by Mr. C. K. Benson, and carried unanimously. With reference to the proposal to purchase the pro- perty of the Market Hall Company, for which X56,000 was asked by the company, Alderman W. E. Samuel moved That the Town Council express their regret that the terms of the last letter from the Market Hall Company, on the question of price, were such as to preclude the Council from further negotiation for the proposed purchase of their undertaking, and that a copy of this resolution be sent to the company, with the hope that the matter need not be considered finally closed." Alderman H. Venables Palin seconded the resolution, which was carried.- A communication was read from the Local Government Board, stating that the board must defer their decision upon the application of the Town Council for sanction to borrow L8,200 for the purchase of the Willow Brewery premises for electric light station, baths, gymnasium, &c., until they were furnished with an approximate estimate of the cost of providing these various institutions. It was resolved to engage Messrs. Lockwood and Barker, architects, Wrexham and Chester, to prepare the estimate asked for. A letter was read from Colonel Creek, command- ing the 23rd Regimental District, conveying to the Cemetery Committee and the Town Council his thanks, on behalf of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers, for the offer of the committee to reserve a portion of the cemetery specially for the interment of soldiers and their families dying at the Wrexham Barracks, and informing the committee that the offer was thankfully accepted.
