HELSBY. CHURCH IMPROVEMENTS.—The erection of a gas lamp directly opposite the steps approaching the church from the main road, in the place of the oil lamp which has done duty up to the present, and the construction of a footpath across the lower portion of the vicarage grounds, and leading from the road on the south-west side of the church to the main entrance, are much-needed improvements, which will doubtless be greatly appreciated by church-goers in general during the coming winter. FORMATION OF A GYMNASIUM. — A well- attended meeting was held at the Telegraph Manufacturing Company's Works on Thursday, with the object of endeavouring to form a gymnasium. Mr. W. Barlow presided, and after some remarks from Mr. Healey and others, it was unanimously resolved that a gymnasium should be formed. Messrs. F. Bay ley, E. A. Bayles, J. Healey, F. Wells, and H. Sartain were appointed as a committee, with Mr. J. Bowyer as hon. sec., to bring the matter before the Management Committee of the Athletic Club for confirmation and to make the necessary arrangements. A large number of those present signified their intention of joining. A vote of thanks to the chairman and Mr. Bowyer brought the meeting to a close. DEATH OF MR. ABRAHAM WHITE.—One of Helsby's oldest and most respected inhabitants has just passed away in Mr. Abraham White, who expired at his residence, Bank House Farm, early on Thursday morning, at the age of 63. Mr. White, who had been a sufferer from a complication of diseases for nearly two years, had so far recovered a short time ago as to be able to go to Wales to further his Droaress towards convalescence, and appeared on his return to have derived so much benefit from the change that hopes were enter- tained of his complete recovery. He, however, took a relapse a few days ago, from which he never rallied, and although all medical aid possible was given him, be expired as stated. In addition to being a large farmer, Mr. White carried on an extensive business as a hay, straw, and cattle dealer, and was consequently a well-known personage at all the markets and fairs for many miles round, and by his amiable manner and integrity in business won the esteem of all with whom he came in contact. His loss will be most keenly felt by the United Methodist Free Church body, of which he was one of the main supporters, pecuniary and otherwise. His labours on their behalf were so highly appreciated by the members that he was elected to every office of honour and respon- sibility that could be conferred upon him. As a lay preacher he did a great deal of good work, and for many years he held the office of circuit steward and superintendent of the Sunday school, which duties he reluctantly gave up through increasing infirmities. Mr. White, although & consistent Liberal, did not take an active part in politics. He was a prominent member of the Parish Council, but had to resign that position through illness. He leaves a widow and seven children to mourn their loss. The interment took place at bt. Paul's Church on Saturday.
