FRODSHAM. Boy BITTEN BY A DOG.-A boy na.med Alfred Shaw has been bitten by a dog, and has under- gone an operation. A COUPLE OF YOUTHFUL WANDERERS.— A rather singular escape happened at Frodsham last week end. On Sunday afternoon, Harry Heselton and Thomas Litster, aged six and nine respectively, started from home about two o'clock with the apparent intention of going to Sunday school, as usual, but really with the evidently preconceived idea of walking towards Chester to meet the elder boy's brother, who was expected to be cycling from Rock Ferry. He, however, owing to the inclemency of the weather had postponed his journey till the following morning. The parents were naturally in great distress as night approached, and the children had failed to appear. Notice was sent to the Frodsham Police Station, and inquiries were telephoned to Chester. The erring ones had, it appeared, wandered to Mickle Trafford, where they were found by the police at 11.30 on Sunday night drenched to the skin, and lodged for the night. APPOINTMENT OF NEW TECHNICAL COMMITTEE. The annual meeting of the ratepayers of Frod- sham was held in the Police Court-room on Wednesday evening, Mr. Thomas Earlam pre- siding, there beiag also present Messrs. J. Mosely Williams, W. E. Shore, W. Noden, C. H. Hibbertt, P. Riley, J. Jones, J. Clarke, P. Booth, R. Andrews, E. Rhodes, C. H. Sladen, W. Bibby, S. Sharp (secretary), and others. The chairman in a few brief remarks explained that the technical committee during the past session had conducted classes in the follow- ing subjects Carpentry, practical cookery, needlework, shorthand, theory of music, drawing (model and freehand), and book-keeping, with 82 members, together with the conduct of two ambulance classes, under Dr. Burton. The attendance throughout, he was glad to say, had been exceedingly good, and great interest had been manifested in the various subjects taught. He then presented prizes for the best attendances made to Miss Amy Langston, W. H. Riley, Ernest Andrews, Harry Garner, Wm. Bibby, Rowland Hough, Frank Garner, Fred. W. Booth, Thomas Hughes, and James Hughes. Mr. Mosely Williams congratulated the suc- cessful candidates on the high standard attained in the drawing class. In the model class, out of seven, three had obtained first class, one second, and one third and in the freehand, out of the same number, there were four firsts and one second. He was glad to say that the conditions in regard to the carpentry tools had been kept-the class having been formed three years—consequently they were now the property of the Technical Committee, whether under the auspices of the County Council or otherwise. The old committee he saw had made an application to the Cheshire County Council for a grant of z670 for the com- ing season's work. He also made reference to the late Mr. Thomas Rigby, who had shewn him- self an active and sympathetic worker on the Technical Committee, and, in fact, had initiated the movement in Frodsham. It was resolved to send a few suitable words to the family, regret- ing his absence from among them that night. The appointment of the new committee was then considered, whereupon it was moved by Mr. Jones, and seconded by Mr. Riley, that the following gentlemen constitute the Technical Committee for the coming year :—Messrs. Chas. G. Linaker, J. Mosely Williams, T. Earlam, J. Illidge, J Jones, C. H. Hibbertt, Philip Speak- man, J. P. E. Rhodes, H. E. Heywood, C. A. Dawson, J. Jones, P. Riley, J. Clarke, C. H. Sladen, W. E. Shore, J. W. Rothwell, J. Baxter, and W. R. Earp. A vote of thanks to the chairman terminated the meeting.
