WREXHAM. A LEAP IN THE CANAL.—A married woman, named Blutton, of King's Mill-road, Wrexham, was brought before the Llangollen magistrates, on Tuesday, charged with attempting to commit suicide. Prisoner went to Llangollen on Monday, and while there threw herself into the canal. A short distance away was found a shawl, through which was seen a piece of paper bearing her name and address. She was fortunately rescued and handed over to the police.—Prisoner, on promising not to repeat the offence, was handed over to the custody of her parents. TowN COUNCIL.—On Tuesday at a meeting of the Sanitary Committee, under the presidency of Alderman W. E. Samuel, the sanitary inspector (Mr. C. Moore) reported that since the last meeting there had been in the borough 18 cases of scarlet fever, eight of diphtheria, and three of erysipelas. All the cases of diphtheria, with one exception, were of children who attended the Stansty Board Schools. It was decided to call the attention of the Rural District Council to the matter.—The borough surveyor submitted plans for the surface drainage of Smithfield road, part of Crescent- road, Templar's-avenue, Beast Market, part of Charles-street, Market-street, and Farndon- street. He estimated the cost at £ 270. The plans were adopted, and it was decided to apply for a loan to carry out the work. THE LATE REV. DR. ROBERTS: MESSAGE OF SYMPATHY FROM THE QUEEN.-On Saturday, the Rev. T. E. Thomas, minister of the Coed- poeth Congregational Church, Wrexham, received the following letter from the Queen's private secretary :—" Balmoral, 9t.h September, 1897. Dear Sir,-I duly received your telegram of the 6th instant, and communicated its con- tents to the Queen, who expressed her regret upon hearing of the death of the Rev. Dr. Roberts, of Wrexham.—Yours faithfully, J. EDWARDS." The volume of English sermons which the late Rev. Dr. Roberts published a few years since was dedicated by special permission to the Queen, and her Majesty wrote autograph letters granting her permission and thanking Dr. Roberts for a copy of the volume.
