The anthem Why seek ye the living among the dead," (Cooke) was beautifully rendered by the choir, numbering about 70 voices, and Miss Dyson who presided at the organ did her part excellently, and contributed largely to the success of the musical part of the service. ST. THOMAS' CHURCH, FLINT MOUNTAIN.—This Church was as usual, beautifully decorated for the "Queen of Festivals" by Miss Mat'hews, Misses Skipper and Miss Clara Williams. The anthem was well rendered, and the present efficient state of the choir speaks highly of the care and leadership of the organist, Mr. John Morris. There was a large con- gregation and 22 members made their Easter Communion.
VESTRY MEETING AT THE NATIONAL SCHOOLS. On Tuesday last, the annual vestry meeting was held, the Rector (Rev. W. Ll. Nicholas, M.A.), presiding over a numerous attendance. The Rector on opening the meeting expressed his pleasure at again meeting those present, and gave a resume of the works that had been brought to a succe-sful issue in the parish since his appointment as Rector. In Flint he could point to the Muspratt Memorial Schools the Boundary Walis of the Parish Church- yard the two acres of land consecrated and added to the Cemetery; the Caretaker's Cottage built by Miss Moon the restoring and heating of the Cemetery Church, and the beautifying of the interior of Flint Church. Neither had the outlying districtslof Pentre and Hint Mountain been neglected In Pentre a plot of land had been purchased and a new classroom been erected, and in St. Thomas', Flint Mountain, boundary walls had been erected and now windows would shortly be placed in the Church.—Towards the organ fund X228 had been subscribed. In fact, during the year, a great advance had been made all along the line, the con- gregation has increased and the collections show a decided improvement. In 1891 the Church collections amounted to £ 77. In 1892 to d683, and this year £ 90 17s. 7d. The first year of the Rectar's residence in Flint the number of communicants on Easter Sunday was 74, this year they numbered 268. The aaoounts were read and a balance of £10 was shown, of this the Rector proposed devoting Y,5 towards beautifying the old churchyard and buying new surplices. The Rector appointed Mr. J. W. M. Evans, as his warden for the ensuing year. Mr. R. Jones, Bradford House was proposed by Mr. R. W. Bowen, and seconded by Mr. H. Owen. The sidesmen were Mr. J. Bibby Lloyd, appointed by the Reotor, Mr. R. W. Bowen, Mr. Matthew Rogers and Mr. R. Price elected by the vestry.— Mr. A. Dyson proposed that the statement of accounts be printed and circulated.—Mrs. Muspratt called attention to the fact that the new organ would cause an increase in the expenditure, as it would require tuning, &c. annually in order to keep it in proper working order.—This being all the business of the vestry, Mr. T. W. Hughes, C.C., Coleshill, asked to be allowed to call attention to the way in which the vestry had been convened. Last year he had called attention to the inconven- ient time (noon on a working day) for a vestry, and at the adjourned vestry the Rector promised that a suitable time should be appointed, but this had not been done. He was fully aware of the reason for this, and was much surprised at it At the last adjourned vestry he had brought forward the question of the pew-rent abolition which was defeated by one vote, but as he had given notice to bring the matter again forward the business was pushed through in one meeting instead of calling another adjourned vestry in order purposely to defeat his ends. He would not, however, urge the matter to a crisis, and in view of the disturbed condition of the Church it might be supposed there was an internal strike and so create harm, and beyond entering a. protest against the manoeuvre he did not wish to press the matter further.—No further remark was made, and a vote of thanks to the Rector terminated the meeting. BOROUGH SESSIONS: WEDNESDAY.—Before His Worship the Mayor (Alderman J. L. Muspratt), and Mr. A. K. Howard. SPECIAL CONSTABLES. The following burgesses were sworn in to serve as speoial constables on the Borough-Messrs. O. Gloyne, Mumforth-street; George Johnson, Mount- street; Edw.

Jones, chemist, Church-street, and John Lloyd, builder, Salisbury-street. A SHINDY AT THE CASTLE. Kate Williams, of Evans-street, was summoned for assault by Sarah Hobbs, of Castle terrace, who also applied that Williams should find sureties to keep the peace.—The Complainant said she was coming from her sister's house, and when in the lobby of Castle Terrace, the defendant came behind her and struok her on the back of her head with a lamp glass. She had passed the defendant and her mother in the lobby and had to push past them. She did not call the defendant names.—Mary Ellen Pierce said she saw defendant strike the complainant with the lamp glass, and also with her hands. Defendant made several rushes at the complainant and beat her about the head. In answer to the defendant, witness denied that her aunt had a porter bottle in her hand trying to strike her.- John Edw. Pierce said he stopped the defendant beating his aunt. The defendant wanted to give her a "wigging."—Defendant said all the com- plainant had against her was because she would not allow a travelling Sootehman" to call at her house for money, and becauso she would not permit it, she said she would take it to the station to him. Complainant was" against" her because she would not let her and her chap" come into her house on a wet Saturday night. She did not like suoh a thing. Defendant admitted that she bad a lamp glass in her hand, but she fell on her knees. She did not strike the complainant. She only tried to get a porter bottle from her. Defendant was standing talking to her mother when the com- plainant came up and using a foul epithet, said she could not get past the peoplq.-Mary Lloyd gave evidenoe for the defence, and said Mrs. Hobbs was struggling with Kate Williams, the former had a porter bottle, and the latter a lamp glass in her hand. She saw Mrs. Hobbs strike Mrs. Williams on the left breast with the bottle. They were calling each other names.—Kate Morris, of Castle Terrace, defendant's mother, corroborated the evidence.—The case was dismissed, each pekrty to pay her own costs.
A TIN CAN FUSIL 4DB. "dge Flaherty, Roskell-square, was summoned by Catherine Kelly of the same place, for assault committed early in the evening of Easter Monday. -Complainant stated that she was in her own house sewmg about six in the evening, when defendant burst into the door with a tin can in her hand, aud said Where is Mulfarney's and I'll split her head open.

There were a large number of oommunicants at the morning celebra- tions. Appropriate hymns and psalms were used for the occasion, and in the evening the choir sang an Easter Anthem. Mr. A. O. Thomas, presided at the organ. The services were excellently attended. The decorations were effectively carried out by Mrs. Owen, Vicarage; Mrs. Pierce, Mrs. Sanders, Miss Taylor (reading desk), Miss Gleave (pulpit), Miss Beattie (lectern), Miss Roberts and Miss Aubrey. Flowers, evergreens, &o., were sent from Oaklands, Coleshill, &c. The school children also brought flowers. THE ANNUAL TEA AND CONCERT AT BETHANIA. The annual tea meeting and concert in con- nection with the Bethania Wesleyan Chapel, was held on Good Friday, and was very success- ful, the favourable weather that prevailed conducing to the success. The tea party was held in the chapel at four o'clock in the after- noon, and was attended by close upon 400 people.

EASTER VESTRY.—HANDSOME DONATION BY THE DUKE OF WESTMINSTER. The annual vestry for the passing of Church accounts and appointment of Church officials was held at the National Schools, on Easter Monday, the Vicar (Rev. Robt- Owen), presiding.—The accounts of St. Mary's Church, were submitted by the retiring Churchwarden Mr. Robt. Foulkes.

The work could not have gone on better or more smoothly and satisfactorily than it bad done.—Mr. Robert Foulkes acknowledging the vote on behalf of him- self and the other offioials, said they had tried to do their best and to meet all difficulties as they appeared and he was glad to say they had overcome them, and he had every confidence in saying that progress would be made in tho immediate future. With regard to the new Mission Room at the Boot end of Bagillt, which it was proposed to build, plans had been obtained, prepared by Mr. Bibby, of Flint, and the specifications for the building would soon be to hand, when they would be open to receive tenders for the work. The deed of conveyance of the land was being prepared by Mr. Lewis, Denbigh. the Bishop's secretary. They had also been enabled to commence the boundary wall of the piece of land lately given by Mr. Pennant, of Nantlys, for the enlargement of the Churchyard. The contract had been let to Mr. Richard Jones, and very soon the land would be ready for consecration. They also wanted to get the Church attended to; hitherto circumstances had delayed the work. The Duke of Westminster with his usual generosity had headed the list of subscribers to the fund with a donation of JE50 (applause). He thought, whoever would be the officials of the future, there was a bright prospect before them. The congregation was increasing and everything connected with the Church was straight, and the only thing they would have to do was to work hard and they would soon have the old Church in a condition worthy of the worship within its walls.—The Vicar said he had much pleasure in again nominating Mr. Robt, Foulkes, as his Churchwarden for the ensuing year. —Mr. Thos. Roberts proposed the re-appointment of Mr. W.1 Wood, as parish warden.—Mr. R. Foulkes seconded the proposition, which was carried.-The following sidesmen were nominated by the Vicar, Messrs. Thos. Roberts, Peter Hunt, W. Thomas (Brynhyfryd), and G. F. Aubrey. For the parish, Messrs. Hy. Beattie, Arthur Jones, S. Lloyd and Thos.

The most necessary work being performed first. The funds for the work now amount to A:230, including the donation of £ 50 from the Duke of Westminster, which the Vicar received within the last few days. The Vicar and Church- wardens will form a parochial council to carry out the work. The contemplated alterations will when complete cost £ 590. The Vicar is anxious to obtain snfficient funds for the complete restoration of the Church. It is intended to advertise for tenders for the erection of the Mission Room at the Boot, as soop. as the specifications are to hand.
HOLLOWAY'.S OINTMENT AXD PILLS,—Shortness of Breath, Coughs, and Colds. —Thousands of testimonials can be produced to prove the power possessed by these corrective remedies in cases of asthma, incipient consumption and all disorders of the chest and lungs. The Ointment, well rubbed upon the chest and back, penetrating the skin. is absorbed and aarried directly to the lungs, where, in immediate contact with the whole mass of circulating blood, it neutralises or expels those impurities, which are the foundation of con- sumption, asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia, and similar complaints. On the appearance of the first consumptive symptoms tbe back and chest of th-i patient should be fomented with warm brine, dried with a coarse cloth, and Holloway's Ointment then well well rubbed in. Its absorption will .subdue advancing symptoms, and baffle this formid- able foe.
Flintshire Quarter Sessions. The Quarter Sessions for this County were held at the County Hall, Mold, on Wednesday last, before J. Scott Bankes, Esq., (chairman), P. P. Pennant, Esq., (vice-chairman), R. V. Kyrke, Esq., 0. P. Morgan, Esq., E. H. Wain, Esq., H. St. John Raikes, Esq., P. Tatton Oooke, Esq. and Basil E. Phillips, Esq. The following gentlemen were sworn on the Grand Jury:- Mr. J. E. R. Johnson, St. Asaph (foreman). Mr. T. Anthony, Flint. Mr. William Bellis, Waen, Mold; Mr. Roger Bass, Newmarket. Mr. J. H. Brown, Rhyl. Mr. J. T. Eaohus, Holy well. Mr. Job Edwards, Mold. Mr. Samuel Holgate, Holywell. Mr. Samuel Handley, Hawarden. Mr. W. A. Jones, Hope. Mr. E. Jonea, Hoseley Bank. Mr. Ishmael Jones, Llanasa. Mr. J. F. Jones, Owm. Mr. D. Morgan, Caerwys. Mr. W. Roberts, Rhyl. Mr. Thomas Smith, Mostyn. The Chairman in charging the Jury said, their services would not be required to investi- gate any case. The reason for this, no doubt, was that the Assizes for the County had been held only two or three weeks ago. No doubt some of them thought it hard to be obliged to come there when there was nothing for them to do. The Chairman then spoke of the nuisance of having the fair in the town. He hoped that the existing state of things would soon be altered, and that a convenient place would be found in wlttch to hold the fairs. NEW MAGISTRATES. The following gentlemen qualified as magis- trates for the County:—Messrs. W. Trevor Parkins, Gresford; Thomas Parry, Mold; John Corbett, Mold: William Williams, Glasfryn, Caerwys; and Pennant Athelwold Iremonger Lloyd, of Pentrehobin, Mold. THE HAWARDEN MINING APPEAL.—THE CONVICTIONS QUASHED. May hew and Newton, v. Hall and Hawarden Justioes. This was an appeal against the decision of the Hawarden Bench of magistrates who on the 12th January last, on the informa- tion of Henry Hall, H.M. Inspector of Coal Mines, convicted Horace Mayhew, as owner, and Joseph Newton, (as manager, of the Lane End Colliery, Hawarden, of contravening the first general rule contained in the 49th section of the Coal Mines Regulation Act, 1887, by not providing an adequate amount of ventilation in their colliery. Mr. E. Honoratus Lloyd, (instructed by Messrs. Peace and Ellis, Wigan), appeared for the appealants, and Mr. W. B. Yates, (instructed by Messrs. H. W. Oollins Robinson, and Co., Liverpool), represented the respondents. After hearing counsel on either side, the Court decided to quasft both oonyic- tiaos. NINE TIMES N THE NINE.
NINE TIMES ON THE NINE. I'm as good as dead. I've won nine times on the nine, and lost aine times on the seven. Give this note to the banker; he knows the address of my relatives." It was in a gambling house in Montana. The gambler who uttered these words threw down his oards, rose from the table, and left the place. At early dawn the next morning the police found his body in some shrubbery about a mile distant. His own pistol was full of oar fridges it had not been used, yet there was a bullet hole in his left breast. Was there any mysterious prophecy in the cards, or was the gambler's fear the outgrowth of super- stition, and his death a coincidence? Everyone must decide for himself. Bat people are often considered as good as dead for a much more intelligible reason. Mr. William Goble, of 104, Albion Street, Southwiok, near Brighton, was recently placed on that list by his friends. In his case the danger was not from powder or sharp steel, but from something that hurries more folks out of the world than they do. His story is this Looking at his tongue, one day in the spring of 1887, he found it coated like a piece of brown leather. Of itself this might not have worried him, but other signs and portents went with it. His appetite failed, and what little he did eat seemed to cause great pain in his chest and sides. Now good food never acts that way when a man is in proper oondition. Quite the contrary. What was the matter ? Writing about it under date of November 26th, 1891, Mr. Goble said: "I couldn't imagine what had come over me. Nothing like it had ever hap- pened to me before. I had always been strong and healthy. But now I had a foul taste in the mouth, and wind appeared to roll all over inside my body. I had a choking sensation in my throat, and some- times my heart would beat so fast and so hard that it frightened me. After a while I got so weak I had to give up my work. I was almost too weak to walk, and when out walking I would get short of breath. Gradually I became weaker and weaker, and lost all my flesh. I could just crawl about, and that was all. My cheeks were sunken, and I had such a pale, ghastly look that my friends said I was in a deoline and would never be better. A doctor in Southwiok said I was suffering from dyspepsia, but after he had treated me for nine months I was worse than ever. At this time, our clergyman, Rev. Mr. Heywood, recommended me to the Brighton Hospital, where I was under treatment for one year. Several of the doctors sounded my lungs and seemed pnzzled by my com- plaint, and ohanged my medioines so often that I wondered if they would ever find the right remedy. At the end of the year I stopped going: to the hospital, and began to take cod liver oil, but it did no good, and I made up my mind that I was indeed doomed to death and nothing oould prevent it. "Still I am alive and well to-day, and I'll tell you why in few words. In April, 1889, I met with a friend of mine, Mr. Groves, of Southwick, who told me of his own illness and of the great benetit he had received from Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup. I got a bottle, and by the time I had finished it my food agreed with me and I felt a little stronger. Four more bottles completed the cure, and I have since enjoyed as good health as I ever did in my life. I am a gardener, and have been in the employ of General Turnbull, The Hermitage, Southwick, for ten years. I will gladly answer inquiries."—(Signed) WILLIAM GOBLB. The Southwick doctor's diagnosis was right: Mr. Goble's disease was indigestion and dyspepsia, some of the symptoms of which he names in his statement. His plain testimony will serve to strengthen, if necessary, the popular oonfidenoe in Mother Seigel's Syrup as a cure for this prevailing and perplexing malady. The Southwiok gardener lost two years' time by not knowing what to do. But he is vastly better than a dead man now, and will, we trust, live long to give others the benefit of his knowledge.
♦— TALAURE. GRATIFYING PRESENTATION TO MISS ANDERSON. On Tuesday evening a very pleasant proceeding took place at the Talaore Boys' School, this being a presentation to Miss Anderson, Head Mistress of the Girls' School. The address was a beautiful specimen of the illuminator's art, encased in a splendid moulded and gilded frame, and was the work of Mr. J. Fisher, illuminator, 114, Bold-street, Liverpool. In the left hand bottom corner is an exo6llent view of the Talaore Schools, to see which, will frequently bring baok to Miss Anderson's mind the very happy days spent in the School with her laborious task of teaching the children of the neighbourhood for close upon two generations. The abilities of Miss Anderson as a teacher are well known in the district, and can be testified by scores of ladies now married and liv- ing far away from the haunts of their childhood. We dare say that Miss Anderson was stimulated in her love of the art of teaching by the noble example set forth by the Rev. Canon Chapman, when that gentleman was in charge of the Talaore Mission and who prevailed to get the noble Schools now in pxistenoe built through the munificence of the late Sir Pyers Mostyn, Bart., and of the present Do wager The Honble. Lady Mostyn, and which will ever remain a lasting monument to the revered memory of the Baronet. It is gratifying to think that the present Sir Pyers and Lady Mostyn are following the steps of their predecessors in this respect, of sup- porting the education of the children of the poor, and that the worthy Baronet and her Ladyship fiud time in addition to their other multitudinous duties to take such interest in the Schools. It was most regrettable to those present that Lady Mostyn was compelled through illness from making the presentation to Miss Anderson, in securing which she had worked so sedulously and energetically. The address, nicely engrossed in vellum, was as follows To Miss Anderson, Talaore Girls School. We your friends, pupils and wellwishers, desire to ask your acceptance of the acoompanying token of our esteem, and also to express our very sincere regret at your departure fjom among us. For many years you have most ably filled the position of Head Mistress of an important School, gaining by your impartiality and kindness, the affection of all those who had the good fortune to be your pupils, and the respect of all who knew you. We earnestly hope that God may grant you many years for the enjoy- ment of that rest and happiness which you have so nobly earned." The address having been read by a young lady, and aocepted by Miss Anderson, Sir Pyers W. Mostyn, Bart., in felicitous terms presented to Miss Anderson a beautiful case bearing the in- scription Presented to Miss Anderson as a tribute of love and affection from the Talacre School child- ren," and containing the sum of £ 40 in Bank notes, which had beensubsoribed by friends and wellwisbers. Miss Andereon being overwhelmed with feelings of gratitude, the task of replying was undertaken by Mr. Moores, of the boys' department, who read the following address prepared by Miss Anderson: —"How shall I thank you adequately for this beautiful address, and for the very kind sentiments conveyed in it towards me, as well as for the purse of gold which accompanies it. I can only say, I thank you from my heart. It is a subject of ex- treme pleasure and gratification to me to be assured that my labours amongst you in the cause of education have been appreciated, and further, that they have been effectual, as evidenced by the ex- emplary conduct of the Talacre school children both past and present, many of my old pupils being now the mothers of the latter. You will pardon me if I give way to the feelings which overwhelm me on this occaeion. Besides retiring from the pro- fession of a teacher, I am leaving the home of my childhood, and the scene of my labours for the last 35 years, and I am about to leave you, my dear friends, who have by your sympathy and kindness sustaiaed me all along in my arduous work. The work of education, of training the minds and souls of the young, is a noble work. But to have been spared by a divine and merciful Providence to en- gage in this elevating work for so long a period in the same school is a privilege and an honour be. stowed on but very few teachers. This reoollection and the remembranoe of your kindness will serve to cheer me in my absence from amongst you, even to the day of death As for my faults, failings and short comings (whioh I acknowledge have been many), I beg you will now pardon me for them, and recall me to your remembrance only as your old teaober and friend. My work has indeed been a labour of love amongst you, and hence the years have sped all too quickly. As Holy Scripture assures us, that They who instruct others unto justice shall shine as stars for all eternity," so, indeed, do I hope and pray this may be your lot also hereafter." Miss Lay, a niece of Miss Anderson, who for many years has been assisting at the sohooi, was on the Thursday previous preented with a leather travelling case bearing the initials "M.L. and which had been wholly subscribed for by school children. The presentation was made at Talacre by Lady Mostyn and the school children. On Tuesday evening a large number of friends were present to witness the presentation by the kind invitation of Sir Pyers and Lady Mostyn.—Miss Lombard, of St. Francis' School, Chester, is to succeed Miss Anderson.
Football. WBEXHAM GYMNASIUM V. liOLYWELL RKSKBVES.— The above tie in the semi-final of the Junior Cup, was played at Mancott football ground, on Saturday last, before about 600 spectators. Wrexham won the toss and played with the wind, and scored three goals in the first half. On changing ends the ball was continually kept in the Wrexham goal, but the Holywell team played so recklesly that they had, at the call of time, to retire vanquished by four goals to one.—The Holywell team lost their chance of the medals through playing too selfish a game. The referee was Mr. Smith of Wrexham. HOLYWELL v. FLINT. The above local rivals met on Easter Monday at Holywell in their friendly return game. The weather was all that could be desired and about 900 spectators lined the ropes. Flint won the toss and chose to play down hill and with a blazing sun at their backs. Five minutes after the advertued time R. Jones kicked off for Holywell, who soon made headway towards the Flint goal, and had hard lines in the first minute. The goal kick opened play, and the Flint forwards were robbed by the home halves, who transferred play to the Flint end. Holywell forwards kept the game in hand for a short time and should have notched a point or two. The Flint forwards were soon on the attack and after a scrimmage not far from the Holywell goalmouth, the Flint inside right found an opening with a sood low shot, m about 10 minutes from the start, which effort was received with applause by the large muster of Flint spectators. The centre kick resulted in some good play on both sides, the ball travelling from end to end without any advantage Flint pressing, gained a corner which was cleared, and the leather was soon transferred to the other end. Gordon Jones, although (as usual) closely watched, made some good runs. Holywell forwards had hard lines in not scoring having the ball nearly on the line and the Flint custodian having to leave hie post to clear. Flint came again and W. Davies just missed scoring by shooting a bit wide. The game, which had been very fast became slower and better foot- ball was seen. Flint at times showing very nice combination. Half-time arrived with the score FLINT, 1; HOLYWELL, 0. After the usual interval, Bartley started for Flint who were at once in the Holywell quarters and Foster Williams was called upon early in the game J. Jones relieved with a good kick, and the home forwards made for the Flint goal, but were repulsed by the brothers Lloyd. During this half both goals had narrow escapes, and two or three corners were fruitless, and at the call of "time" a most keenly sontested game ended in favor of Flint, the score being FLINT, 1; HOLYWELL, 0.

EACH individual owes a duty to society to exert an Influence against evil doing, and he cannot ignore It with impunity. One of the most powerful of human influences is that of popular opinion. Every one re- spects it, and in greater or less degree is led by it, consciously or unconsciously. Whether as a restraint of an incentive, it is ever actively moulding the con- duct of the community. But what is popular opinion ? It is nothing more than the aggregate of Individual opinion, and it ia made manifest only by the frank expression of each individual in various and characteristic ways. It is not an outside some- thing which we can analyse and discuss, for each of us is daily contribnting his or her share to jm formation. We cannot rail at it' for MBf frivolous or cruel or fickle or untrustworthy without fa a degree condemning ourselves in the same direction.

The most General Ailments of Spring are :— WEAKNESS. LOW SPIRITS, LANGOUR, LOSS OF APPETITE, NERVOUSNESS, IMPURE BLOOD, &?., &c., &c. -.(,- In most cases these are the effects of the ailments they have suffered from during the winter months sur-h as Asthma, Bronchitis. Influenza, and other Chest Affections. All persons are aware that these are common complaints during the winter and spring months, and that they are followed by great prostration, weakness, and despondency of the patients, when the violence of the attack has passed away. To strengthen and renovate the system v hen in this condition a safe and reliable tonic medicine is required It is unanim- ously admitted by all whojhaye given it a fair trial that there is no tonic preparation yet discovered so efficacious and un- failing as GWILYM EVANS' QUININE BITTERS.
