Towyn now secured and some neat passing was seen on the right wing P. Roberts and Alf Lewis brought the ball down together, and were going nicely along when Roberts robbed them and sent the hall back 8sain. Tor the next ten minutes the "1" Er, to. Then the Oolleg. broke away and were going dangerously up the field and brought the ball near the mouth of the Towyn goal where a lively and exciting scene teok place but O. Green came to the rescue and sent the ball Sy down the field. The College brought the wil fin aeain and Harris sent in a hot »hot which hit tbl orosB-bar but failed to score. The College played up to this point the better game but now Towvn began to feel their ground and G. Davies brought the ball dowm and passed it to Lewis who passed it to Roberts. He shot at goal, but p the ball passed over the bar. From the goal kick Towyn secured arid George Davies played down the field, passing to P. Roberta, who shot, but failed to score. Several attempts were made by the Towyn right wiiig, but they were fruitless The College new seemed to be pressing, but Price Evans came to the rescue and Bent the ball down the field. Towyn seized the opportunity, and Alf Lewis made a dash for goal, but this time again Towyn failed to soore. The College made several attempts to score, but were stopped by the backs. Towyn, on the left wing, now began to show some action, and Gladstone Davies bringing the ball near the goal gave a neat shot, which caught the cross-bar and wenl. out. Frem the goal kick the College seemed to 1 o pressing, and the gamA was getting rather excite. A dash was made for the TOWYB goal, and Harris scored the first ffoal tor the Colleee. After change of ends Towyn seemed weak and the half-backs had hard work to keep the College eat. J. Hughes made »ver»l g.o saves but at last another goal was scored for the College. This did not seem to dishearten the Towynites, who played up well, and the home goalkeeper was kept busy. At last Towyn made a dash and in the scrimmage secured a ?oal. The College after about twenty minutes play, brought the ball down to the Towyn goal, and P. Evans and O. Green were kept pretty busy, but tUy at last managed to get the ball clear, and Green ran up with it to near the College goal, but Roberts came to the rescue and sent the ball back again. Towyn were again pressing, and teveial corners were forced, but none of them P^'f <i Gladstone Davies came forwaid with the ball, and several attempts were made to stop him, but ho passed it to the left wing, who centred it and a goal was scered by Towyn, thus makiug the scores equal, and sbortlj after time was called and the game ended in a draw of two goals each.
THE COMBINATION. WINSFORD SHARE HONOURS AT WREXHAM. Wrexbam entertained W insfurd on the Race- course Wrexham, in a Combination fixture, on Saturday, before ft fair nnmler ot spec alor., aad in wet weather. The teams were as follows — WRBXHAM. Gool, E. Thomas; backs, Davies and H. Blew; halves J LI. Hughes, E. Robn son, and W Heske-h, forr,d., Tom Bughee, LI. Griffith., K. Jaek«on,T. Goidon, end J. Owen. WINSFORD. Goal Davies backs, Fletcher and Lewis; halves, Church, Harrison, and Berry j forwards, HitchinsoD, Bostock, Lamb, Booth, and Jones. Winsfoid won the toss and decided to play with a strong wi*d in their favour, and from the outset it was very evident that the Wrexhamites were not to have all their own way. The visitors made away at a great speed, and Lamb sent in a good shot which Thomas cleared with a little difficulty and Hesketh securing, fully relieved by giving to Gordon, and the home forwards came along nicely. Jackson sent over to the right wingers, and Tom Hughes, after beating Berry, centred splendidly, but Gordon missed an excellent opportunity of scoring, and Fletcher cleared. The Wrexham goal was next paid a visit, and a mis-kick of Davips let Jones get past him, who sent in a good shot, but Blew cleared in style. The visitors again came along, and Thomas was called upon by Bostock on two occasions. The homesters get well down and Gordon gave to his partner when near in, but the latter's shot went a trifle wide. The visiting right wing was checked by Hesketh, who went on his own and put in a good shot which was only a trifle high. The homesters kept up the pressure, but Tom Hughes when in a good pasitien, shot miser- ably, and a golden opportunity was allowed to pass. Jackson next secured aLd sent over to Tom Hughos who went well, and when near the corner flag turned the ball well iu the mouth of goal, and frem his centre LI. Griffiths was enabled to score a good goal which gave Davies no chance. This put more life into the game and both teams seemed to strain every neive to gain goals. Blaw and Davies playing a good game at back for the homesters, while Bostock, Booth, and Jones were attacking well for Winsferd. On the other hand Fletcher at back, and Davies in goal, played a good game when attacked by the Wrexham forwards of whom all er t plo*' had a finger in tbjWpie." Tom Hughes put in an excellent sliot wjJPn grazed on the cross-bar. His attempt was a g«od one, and fully deserved the applause accorded him. Half-time arrived with Wrexham one goal a-head. On resuming the Wrexbamites were first to come within dangerous range, and it was thought that more goals would soon be added. Uowever Davies, Fletcher, and Lewis played a good defensive game, and kept all well at bay. The homesters were awarded a corner kick which was well placed, but Davies saved a header from Tom Hughes. Wrexham had the greater part of the play from now until time- though the Winsford men made some dangerous bro;akaways-but could not increase their lead, T. Gordon, Jackson, and LI. Griffiths having kard lines in guccessioa, while Tom Hughes brought Davies ta his knees with a superb shot. Jones, the visiting outside left, however, equalised after E. Thomas had saved onoe from Hitohinson in the last couple of minuter OSWESTRY DEFEAT WITTON ALBION. Oswestry entertained Witton Albion on Satur- day, before a fair attendance. The ground was in a slippery condition, rain coming down heavily throughout the afternoon. The game consequently was of a tame description, neither set of players being able to do themselves justice. The teams were WITTON ALBION. Goal, Barber; backs, Edwards and Webb; halves, Cunliffe, Sutton and Drinkwater forwards, Cliffie, Foster, Eyres, Hughes and Yarwod. OSWESTRY. Goal, C. Parry; backs, Jarman and Bowyer; half-backs, R. Morris, H. Jones and Hampson; forwards, D. Davies, Smallwood, Freeman, New- bound and B. Morris. Referee, Mr [G. O. Postle. The opening stages were in favour of the United, who played towards the pavilion goal, and Barbar was quickly ealled upon. The nrst good opening was however badly missed by Bert Morris when in a capital position. The forwards repeatedly broke through the visitors' defenoe, but good attempts by Herby Jones and Smallwood only gave the custodian an opportunity of show- ing be was not to be triied with. Newbound, who played a splendid game throughout, and Freeman forced a couple of fruitless corners. Cliff raised the pressure, and raced down the right wing, finishing up with a smart shot which Parry promptly cleared in style. Down again came the home vanguard, and this time they scored the initial point. A splendid shot by Jarman dropped in front of the Witton goal, and Newbound rushing up, planted the ball in the net after a* exciting tussle with the backs. The goal which was undoubtedly a smart one, was deservedly cheered. The visitors' forwards failed to get away, and Free- man scored a few minutes later, but owing to an infringement of the offside rule, the goal was not conceded. The rain continued to eomo down heavily all the time and the ground was very treacherous. The Albion managed to get away ultimately, and to some purpose, but the final at- tempt was easily cleared by Parry. Half-time arrived with the score Oswestry ome, Witton mil. After a brief but welcome rest, the game was re- sumed, and during the first few minutes in favour of the Albion. Their efforts did not however cause much anxiety, and the United soon changed the venue. Morris had an opportunity but drove over the bar, and several sound attempts by Newbound, Freeman, and Smallwood proved fruit- less. Morris made amends by sending in a well- judged shot, which deserved better luck. The visitors improved and Parry barely saved from Foster. The same player eventnally got through, just as the whistle souuded for off-side, but Eyres equalised with a beauty, which gave Parry no chance. Thus encouraged they played up strongly, and matters began to wear a serious aspect. Hughes spoilt a good many efforts by playing an off-side game. Newbound broke away, and after an excellent bit of play he placed the United ahead once more. The homesters played up we'l and pressed fiercely. Eyres got away on one occasion af)d experienced hard lines in not scoring. Free- man separated at the other end, and ultimately he added a third goal. Smallwood attempted to score, making a good individual effort, but nothing came! The game became very tame after, and the homesters had no difficulty in retaining their lead. The score at the close wa.s :-Oswestry, three goals Witton Albion, one.

N.S.P.C.C. ANNUAL MEETING AT OSWESTRY. The annual meeting of the Oswestry, Mont- gomeryshire, and Aberystwyth Branch of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children was held at the Victoria Rooms, Os- westry, on Thursday afternoon. The chair was occupied by Mr Wynne Corrie, of Park Hall, who was supported by Mrs Wynne Corrie, Mrs W. H. Thomas, Mrs J. Parry-Jones, Mrs Ed. Powell (Newtown), the Rev Benjamin Waugh (director and secretary of the Society),the Mayor (Mr T. Poole), Mr W. Clive Bridgeman, Mr C. P. Gasquoine (hon see), the Rev T. Redfern, the Rev J. J. Poynter, the Rev J. Bowen, the Rev G. R. Campbell, and Mr Bardswell.-The Chair- man said he thought that on the whole the Branch might be congratulated on having done much useful work during the past year (ap- plause).—Letters regretting inability to be pre- sent were read from the Mayor of Aberystwyth, Lady Pryce-Jones, Mr and Mrs Marshall Dug- dale (Llanfyllin), Capt Williams-Freeman (Chief Constable of Shropshire), Mr and Mrs C. Shuker (Welshpool), Archdeacon Wynne Jones, the Hon Mrs Pell Edmonds, Col Fisher, Archdeacon Thomas, Miss Phillips (Aberystwyth),Miss Parry (Welshpool), Lady Edward St Maur, Mr and Mrs C. S. Denniss, and Miss Craven.The Chair- man then proceeded to read the annual report, in the course of which he stated that during the year a portion of Denbighshire had been trans- ferred to the Wrexham Board, and the Oswes- try Branch had taken over the supervision of about one half of Merionethshire, up to Bar- mouth and Dolgelley, which was previously not covered by the Society's organisation. A Ladies Committee had been formed at Llanidloes and another Ladies' Committee was in process of formation at Llanfair Caereinion. During the year 117 cases had been investigated by the inspector, compared with 114 in 1902, 101 in 1901, and 107 in 1900. Of the 117 cases, 88 were cases of neglect and starvation, 26 of ill-treat- ment and assault, one of indecent assault, one of exposure, and one of causing to beg; 109 were found to be true, and affecting the welfare of 308 children, and involving 134 offencess. Warnings were issued in 101 cases, seven prose- cutions took place, eight cases were dropped, and one was otherwise dealt with. The inspector had paid 801 supervision visits during the year. The committee had approached the local branches of the Co-Operative Society with the view of inviting subscriptions and a generous re- sponse had already been made. The Commit- tee had also called the attention of the Central Executive to the frequent suffering by the dan- gers attached to wearing flannellette undercloth- ing and the absence of lire-guards. In response the Central Office was preparing a leaflet on the subject for national distribution. The Society regretted to record the loss by death of the late Vicar of Oswestry, a member of the General Committee, and by removal of the Rev M. E. Alban, a member of the Executive Committee. They desired to repeat their thanks to the officials and to the sympathisers with, and the contributors to, the Society; and to record their continued and complete satisfaction with the manner in which Inspector Burdett discharged his duties. After paying all expenses the Branch had been able to send £ 63 16s. lOd. to the central fund (applause). The total receipts were C.383, against £ 303 for the previous year. Last year a sum of £ 30 had been raised by means of a sale of work, but the actual sums received this year were in excess of those received in the year before (applause). The Chairman added that the central authority had kindly consented to the employment of a clerical assistant to the hon secretary at a salary of £6 per annum, thus showing that the valuable services of Mr Gasquoine to the Society were highly appreciated at headquarters. The committee again wished to express their deep sense of his excellent tact- ful and methodical work (applause)-The Mayor then moved a resolution commending the work of the society to the sympathy and support of the public. It was, he said, a matter for congratu- lation that the work of the Branch had been done in such an excellent manner that towns in other districts had asked that the area of the Branch should be extended (applause).—Mr W. Clive Bridgeman seconded, and said the last time he had met Mr Waugh he was in the Bethnal Green and Shoreditch district of Lon- don. From the experience he had of that poverty-stricken portion he was able to testify to the work of the Society in many directions. It was a matter of great satisfaction that in this Branch they had been able to contribute to i the central fund (hear, hear). There was noth- ing so damaging as taking up cases in which no convictions could be recorded, and it spoke well for the tact and discretion of their committee, secretary, and inspector that in every case they had taken up they had been thus suported (ap- plause). — A highly entertaining address on various aspects of the work of the Society was then given by the Rev Benjamin Waugh. He expressed his pleasure at the fact that they were so well satisfied with the work of the inspector. The central authority were also most highly pleased (applause). — Afterwards Mr Bardswell moved the election of the following on the Gen- eral Committee Mrs Barnes,Quinta Mrs A. B. Blaiktfe, Mr T. Bradshaw, Revs G. Brown and T. M. Bulkeley-Owen, Miss Corbett, Overley Hall; Mrs Drew, the Hon Mrs Pell Edmonds, Rev O. M. Feilden, Mrs Garnett-Botfield, Rev W. G. Haslehurst, Rev Canon Wynne Jones, Mr G. J. Dumville Lees, Mrs Lloyd, Aston Hall; Miss Lloyd, Oswestry; Mrs Morgan, Aberyst- wyth; Mr T. R. Morris, Welshpool; Mr F. B. Owen, Mrs J. Parry-Jones, Mr W. Fletcher Rogers, General Schreiber, C.B., Mrs John Thomas, Mrs Edward Thomas, Mrs Venables, Oakhurst; Rev W. G. Walker, Alderman T. Whitfield, Mr J. J. Lloyd Williams, Mr W. R. M. Wynne, Peniarth; Colonel Fisher, Pentre- pant; and Mrs Moon.-The Rev E. Pell Edmonds seconded, observing that there was one thought uppermost in his mind when reading the report of the Society's work. He believed that seven- tenths of the work would not be necesary if only the hideous drunkenness which existed in this country could be diminished.—The Rev J. J. Poynter moved a vote of thanks to the chairman for presiding, saying that in the absence of Lord Harlech, which they very much regretted, they were deeply indebted to him for his pre- sence that afternoon. — The Rev T. Redfern seconded, and referred to the excellent work of the inspector. He said his influence in Oswestry on the poorer portion of the population had been decidedly for good.—The Chairman in acknow- ledging commended the work of Mrs W. H. Thomas, the secretary of the Ladies' Commit- tee, to the public notice. — Tea, which was kindly provided by Mrs Corrie, was ttft rwajtts provided for those present.
