'A NEW PIANOFORTE.' i MESSRS. CRANE & SONS, the Great Piano and Organ Merchants, Liverpool, have just introduced at considerable cost for the present season another 'NEW MODEL.' It has been made to meet the requirements of those wanting a most powerful toned Cottage Pianoforte at a low price, and it has been pronounced by practical judges in the musical world to be THE BEST PIANOFORTE' in the Kingdom. The height is 4 feet 2 inches, iron frame, check action, full trichord, in an original design of marqueterie case. The tone is pure, of perfect quality, and the greatest amount of resonance ever produced in an upright Pianoforte, and may be had on most reasonable NET CASH TERMS or upon Crane and Sons' NEW HIRE SYSTEM at 2s 6d. per week, delivered free, carriage paid, and warranted for 20 years, on pay- ment of first month's instalment. Sample Piano- fortes are now being shown by CRANE & SONS, 40, Upper Sackville-st., DUBLIN. CRANE & SONS, 80, York-street, BELFAST. CRANE & SONS, Crane Buildings, Regent-street, WREXHAH.

The number in the corresponding week of last year was 60, shew- ing an increase of 15, being a nett decrease in 1897, to date, of 133. A YORKSHIRE MANSION ON FIRE X15,000 DAMAGE. — Rawcliffe Hall, near Goole, the residence of Mr. Ralph Creyke, ex-high sheriff of Yorkshire, was partially destroyed by fire on Sunday morning. The fire originated in the west end of the mansion, and is supposed to be attributable to a beam in the chimney catching fire. It was discovered by the owner, who was walking in the grounds. The Goole Fire Brigade were early on the scene. The more ancient half of the house, dating from the seventeenth century, was burned out, the damage, which is covered by insurance, being estimated at £ 15,000. Many curious valuable pictures and Florentine furniture in the lower rooms were saved. WESLEYAN W ELCOME.—The new pastor of the Chester Wesleyan Methodist Circuit—the Rev. F. F. Bretherton—received a welcome in the form of a tea meeting which was held in the new schools, St. John-street, on Wednesday. There was a large attendance. Immediately after the tea a public meeting took place, Mr. R. Challinor presiding. He read apolegies for absence from Messrs. H. R. f&owers and A. W. Butt, and in his speech said he was sorry there was rather a heavy debt remaining on the schools, but he hoped by the efforts of the mem- bers and others, it would soon be wiped off. The address of the Rev. F. F. Bretherton proved of a highly interesting character. He alluded to his work in the past and he hoped he would fulfil his duties in the future to the satisfaction of all. (Hear, hear.) Other interesting speeches were made by the Revs. J. Morrison and J. W. Blackett, Messrs. George Cooke, C.C., W. T. Davies, J. Griffiths, and others.
