DBATH OF A CAPTAIN. -Captain John Lee, who was for thirty-eight years a captain on the Wood- side ferry service, died on Saturday, at his residence in Bagilit. The deceased, who retired from the service about eight years ago, was held in great respect by all who knew him. DBATH OF AN OLD AND ESTEEMED INHABITANT.— On Tuesday last there passed away in the person of Mrs. Jane Jones, of Manchester House, one of the oldest inhabitants of Bagilit. Mrs; Jones, who was iu her 77th year, was the widow of the late Rev. Benjamin Jones, Calvinistio Methodist Minister, Bagilit, who died in September, 1881, and she had resided at Manchester House for the pait half century. She was the daughter of the late Mr. David Davies, "The Well," Holywell, and was thas connected with an old and highly respectable Holywell family—" Mr. Davies, Y Ffynnon," as he was known to a past generation of Holywoll and Greenfield people, kept a grooer's shop in the premises now oalled Gwenffrwd House. He was a deaoon at Rehoboth Chapel, and was known as a solid good man, whose word was as good as his bond, and who was respected and trusted by all classes. Mrs. Jones had three other sisters, and they became the wives of the late Rev. Evan Lloyd, Holywell, Mr. Thos. Evans, Chemist, Denbigh, and Mr. Ezra Roberts, St. Asaph. They all pre- deceased her, and by the death «|f Mrs. Jones, the last representative of the family of Davies y Ffynnon disappears. Mrs. Jones had three sont3 J. D. and Henry, who survive, and Joseph Denman who died in February, of this year. For the past four years Mrs. Jones had been in failing health, and an attack of bronohitis aooelerated her demise. The funeral of the deceased lady will take place on Saturday next, at three o'clock at the Noncon- formist Cemetery, New Brighton.
FATALITY TO A BAGILLT SAILOR. On Monday night last, a sad and fatal aooident happened to Mr. iliowe, mate of the flat Harriott,' of Bagillt, and residing at the Bull Inn. It appears that the deceased was to sail out of Liverpool by the next tide, which would be about two o'clock the tollowing morning. The deceased would not lie down to ihave any rest before sailing out of the Chester basin for Bagillt, and after ten o'olock, be went on the pierbead to have a chat with the watch- man, leavingj Captain Thos. Bracegirdle and his orother in the oabin. About eleven o'clock, Captain Braoegirdle and his .brother heard something heavy tall on deck and then rebound overboard. They both ran on deck in time to see the long ladder which had been laid from the deck of the flat to the pier- head fall overboard. They leaned over the bulwarks of the flat, and seeing the deceased in the water got hold of him. The watchman hearing a noise ran to them to render help. They saw that Lowe was then quite dead. They tried to draw him on deok, but in doing so his jacket by which they had caught him gave way, ard he slipped from their hold, sink- ing to the bottom of the dook. Information was sent,to the police who immediately obtained grappling irons, and after searohing for over an hour the body was recovered and taken to the Prinoe's Dock Mortuary, to await the holding of an inquest, which was subsequently held, and a verdiot passed in aocordance with the evidenoe which was in substance identical with the above statement of the ooourrenoe. The deoeased's remains wore brought to Bagilit on Wednesday, for interment on Friday. Mr. Lowe was 32 years of age, and leaves a widow in a weak state of health, and three children. Much regret is felt for the widow and family in their bereavement, the deceased being a man well-known and respeoted throughout Bagilit.

Winning the toss the Swifts played with wind and rain at their baoks, which enabled them to press, the visitors not reaohing the half-way line, save twice. Afte r half-an-hour's play the referee, Mr. Marks, Llandudno, stopped the game on account of the weather, with the score Swifts, 2 goals Holywell, nil. MOLD RED STABS V. WKSTMINSTEB RovEBs RESBBVE.- This match was played at Mold on Saturday last, before a numerous gate. Owing to the late arrival of the visitors, a start was not made until 3 o'clock. Hostilities commenced amid a heavy downpour of rain, which fell without inter- mission throughout the game. The Rovers winning the toss, Jones started the ball for the Stars, who at once made tracks for the visitors goal, but tae leather was returned. The Stars again obtained possession, and E. Jones scored, but the whistle having sounded for offside, the point was disallowed. From the free-kick the Stars kept up the pressure, and J. R. Jones scored the first legitimate goal amidst oheers. From the restart the visitors raced down the field, but were pulled up by Barker and soon after the homesters, as a result of some neat pag,sing scored No. 2, J. R. Jones again doing the needful. The visitors (who played ten men) pulled themselves together, and the forwards made a rush on the home oitadel, and eventually scored their first goal. From the centre-kick, play beoame pretty tamo, but Pritchard, one of the home halves, eventually seoured, and soored a splendid goal. Half-time result Stars, 3 goals; Rovers, 1 goal. -After the change of ends the visitors pulled up, and kept the home defence busy, but could not score. Two corners fell to their lot, whioh, however, were not turned to aceount. The homesters again broke away, and J. R. Jones soored No. 4 for his side. The visitors then had a look in, and registered their seoond and last goal. Before the call of time J. R. Jones again soored for the Stars. Final result: Mold Red Stars, 5 goals; Westminster Rovers, 2 goals. The following was the home team :-Goal, F. Roberts baoks, Roose and Barker half-backs, Pritchard, O'Niel, and Pierce forwards, R.

BAGILLT V. ST. ASAPH ATHLETIC. (By DHUSIDBB). The above teams met at Bagillt, on Saturday, to decide who should enter the seoond round of the Junior Cup, in wretched weather. The visitors brought down a powerful team, but the homesters had to find substitutes out of the Swifts' team, for Picroo, Lloyd Jones, Lowia and Foulkes, who owing to their reoent illness did not play. The visitor's oaptain won the tjss, and placed the I black and amber' lads to faoe the rain and wind. Oare started operations for the home team, by giving to E. Jones, but Fox returned; and the visitors for a time had the best of the game, and kept the ball in the home quarters, Gauging Bagillt to give three corners in succession. However, after seventeen minutes' -play, Parry, on the visitor's right, beat J jnes with a good shot. This point roused the homesters and Roberts tried with a long low shot wuich went a little wide. Give and take play ensued for some time, each goal being vibited in tarn Pritehard in the oity goal playing well, and saving time after time. W. Evans being penalised for offside, the kick gave the visitors a little relief, and once more they came down. Bagshaw cleared, and gave to W. Evans, who made a splendid run, and finished up with a swift low shot which fairly surprised Pritohard. Soon after, Oare very nearly did the triok a second time, from a corner; whilst Roberts shot over the bar when in a favourable position. From now up to the interval, the home team were oontinually in the visitors end, but no more scoring was done by either side. Half-time resultBagilit, 1 goal; St. Asaph, 1 goal.— Grimsley restarted, and gave to George, but Pierce stepped in and robbed him. The ball was taken to the visitors quarters, and before a minute had elapsed Oare soored, thus placing his side ahead. The ball being again restarted, the home forwards once more took it down, and W. Jones gave a corner, from which Oare added the third. The visitors were now completely outplayed, and never crossed the half-way line during the short time that was played. From a scrimmage in goal E. Roberts soored the fourth; whilst, two minutes later, Bagshaw replied with a fifth from the half. way line. Shortly after the visiting oaptain gave up the tie, only seventeen minutes of the seoond half having been played, Bagillt winning by five goals to one.—The vi6itors played very well during the first half, and Jones was called upon very often, but when Bagillt seored their third goal they were a beaten team. The homesters although battling Qnder great difficulties called upon Pritohard to clear on many occasions duriug the first half.— Appended are the tedma:-Bagillt Goal, Jones backs, Freeman and Clement; half-backs, 0.

NANNEROH. EXTRAORDINARY STACK FIRES. At about quarter to five on Friday morning last an extraordinary occurrence took place in the neighbourhood of Nannerch, no less than three extensive stackyards being ablaze at the same time, and the whole of the con- tents destroyed entailing a lossof upwards of £ 6oo. The stacks were however insured. The farms were Penbedw Ucha, Mrs. Lloyd, occupier Penybryn, Mr. Pritchard, occupier, and Penucha'rcwm, Mr. Lloyd, oecupier. The stacks on the first named farm were observed to be on fire by Miss Robinson, of Wallgoch, who gave the alarm to her brother, and he went to Penucha and woke up Mr. Lloyd. The fire had, however, obtained such a hold upon the stacks as to quickly destroy them, and a stack of so tons of wheat straw and another of it tons of barley straw were con- sumed. The fires at Penybryn and Pen- ucha'rcwm, were discovered by Mr. Charles Parry, who, with commendable promptitude took horse to both places to raise the alarm. Here, the fires were in rapid progress, and at the first named farm, three stacks of barley, two stachs of oats, one cock of wheat, and one stack of hay were entirely consumed. Upon the alarm being given at Penucha'rcwm the fire engine at Penbedw Hall was sent for and was soon at work. The stacks destroyed at this farm consisted of one of oats, one of barley, one of barley straw, and one stack of hay. The fires are believed to be the work of an incendiary, and the matter is being investigated by the police, who, we believe, have obtained important information which is being closely followed up.
EEYL. A RARE APPETITE.—"When depressed, nnable to eat with relish, try Pepper's Quinine and Iron Tonic LADY HENRY SOMERSET AT RHYL. Groat preparations are being made to weloome this gifted and devoted worker, who is about to make her first visit to North Wales on Friday, December 8th. Lady Henry as president of the British Women's Temperanoe Association, and vice- president of the Women's Liberal Federation, has long been well known to the publio. By her wise and eloquent advocacy of all social reforms, she has endeared herself to all who labour for temperanoe, social purity and woman's suffrage. The late Earl Somers had two daughter*, Lady Isabel, who was born at Eastnor Castle, Herefordshire, in 1861, and Lady Adeline, now Duohess of Bedford. Special attention was bestowed upon their education, and they were familiar with Frenoh, German, and Italian from their childhood. Lady Isabel developed a very strong and well marked individuality, and when presented at Court, created no small stir of excitement, as heiress of Eastnor, Reigate and tiomjrs Tower. In 1872 she married Lord Henry Somerset, seoond Bon of.the Duke of Beaufort. The union was not a happy one, and two years later an amicable separation was arrange The law courts pronounoed the mother frit t, ian of her son, and .Lord Henry retired to FIOAC^JO. Lady Henry then devoted herself to the upbringing of her boy, the discharge of sooial duties and works of charity. She organized a temperance society, mothers' meet ings, bible readings, and mission services amongst her tenants. From speaking to a few villagers, the transition was not difficult to addressing a public meeting, and not long afterwards when she had met Miss Frances Millard, at Chicago, she was electrify- ing crowded and enthuisastio audiences and taking the hearts of the Americans by storm. The grand pavilion at Rhyl has been engaged for the conference of temperance workers at 2.30 p.m., on Friday, December 8th, and for the grand Liberal demonstra- tion at 7 p.m. Besides Lady Henry, Mrs. Eva McLaren, J. Herbert Lewis, Esq., M.P., and others will speak. The ohair will be taken by Mrs. E. Lloyd Jones, of Rhyl.

JOHK HUGHES.— The announce- ment of the death of Mr. John Hughes, the Liberal Registration Agent for Flint Borough, which took place early on Wednesday morning, will come as a aurprise and be regretted by many. In regitration work he was an adept. In the Revision Courts for the last fifteen years, he had done much work for the political party to which he belonged. Mr. Hughes' death was sudden. Though "suffering from what he regarded as a oold, he continued to attend to his business at Oakenholt, up to Monday, when he was ordered to bed by Dr. Hughes, who was attending to deoettood's wife, who was severely ill at the time. Bronchitis developed, and inflam- mation supervening, Mr. Hughes suocumbed at an early hour on Wednesday morning. Mr. HugheB who was about 48 years of age, leaves a widow and one son. He has resided in Flint for upwards of twenty years. A native of Lixwm, Ysoeifiog, he served his apprenticeship as a draper with Mr. J. Garner, C.O., Cross-street, Holywell. A few years later he set up in business in Church-street, Flint, afterwards removing to Chester-road, and sub- sequently opening a grocer's shop at Oakenholt, where he has since lived. He was appointed the Liberal agent for Flint Borough somewhere about 1878, when the parliamentary eleotion took place at which Mr. John Roberts, Bryngwenallt, Abergele, was returned for the Borough. Since then he has been the energetic agent of the Liberal party, and his death will oause a gap not readily filled. Mr. Hughes was a member of the Baptist oause* LABCKNT OF A COAT.—At a special sessions on Monday, before His Worship the Mayor (Alderman Alfred Dyson), and Mr. A. K. Howard, John Hughes, of Flint, alias Jack Snake" was brought up in oustody oharged by Polioe-oonstable Taaffe with the larceny of an overcoat value 4s. on the 24th inst., from James Brogden, of Bridge-street, Chester. JameB Brodgen said he was a seoond-hand clothes dealer, and resided and carried on business in Lower Bridge-street, Chester. On Saturday last he was in Market-square selling some old clothes. He had some of the olothes on a stand and others on the wall. Between three and four it began to rain and he asked prisoner to help him to get the olothing in. Prisoner did so while prosecutor was arranging the olothiBg inside, he forgot three overooats which were hanging up. Prisoner just then came and gave him two ooats and said 0, you forgot them." Some little time afterwards he wanted the ooat produoed for a customer .and could not And it. He called the prisoner and asked him where the third coat was and he said he only saw two. He told prisoner there were three and prisoner told him to try and find it. The ooat produoed was his property, p WM wor*h between 3a.. and 4s. Mrs. Catherine Parry, of the Ship Hotel said the prisoner on Satur- day evening came into the house and she heard him ask one of her sons could he leave the ooat (produoed). She asked whose coat it was and he replied that it was one he had bought. He left the ooat in the house.-Police-oonstable Taaffe deposed to receiving information of the theft, and upon going to the Ship Hotel, the ooat was handed over to him. He got the ooat identified by the proseoutor and afterwards apprehended the prisoner.

Price Jones, who has previously undergone terms ot imprisonment for housebreaking and horse stealing in Flintshire, was committed to the Denbighshire Quarter Sessions for trial on the charge of stealing an overooat from the door of a clothier's shop in Wrexham. It seems that Mr. J. D. Bolton, deputy chief oenstablas of Flintshire, was in Wrexham on business on Wednesday last, when he saw the prisoner go up to the shop door of the prosecutor, and place his shoulder against an overooat that was hanging there and lift it off the hook. The coat dropped across the prisoner's shoulder, and he walked off with it. Mr. Bolton followed him, and in a narrow side street saw him pull the sale ticket off it. He then arrested him and took him back to the shop. The magistrates complimented Mr. Bolton upon his sharpness in detecting the prisoner's manoeuvres. CHAEITY CONCERT AT THB TOWN H-&IL.-At the Town Hall, on Monday evening last, a tolerably numerous audience was assembled on the ocoasion of a charity concert promoted by that benefactor of the poor of Mold, Mr. C. P. Morgan, J.P., Bryn- yr-haul. That the promoter was not content to allow the merits of the oause to serve as the sole inducement to patronage may readily be perceived by a glimpse at the programme, which was as follows, almost every item in which was enoored. Part I,;maroh in "G" Band, (conducted by Mr. H. Haselden) ballad, The Irish Imigrant," Mr. Thornborough; song, "Spring," Miss Maggie Pritohard violn-n-ll,, &-In, Mr. Moore; seleotion, "Largo," Band; reoit. and air, "Home of my heart," Mr. Thornborough seleotion, Farewell Symphony," Band.

None of the artistes were new to Mold and the renewal of acquaintance proved advantageous to both performers and audience. From a musioal point of view the concert was a thorough success, and we trust that Mr. Morgan's efforts will result in a considerable augmentation of the relief fund. Madame Douglas-Adams and Mr. Horace Haselden discharged the duties of accompanists,

FLINT V. TRANMERE ROVERS. Flint, despite the weather, played their friendly fixture with Tranmere Rovers, at the Borough-road enclosure, Birkenhead, on Saturday last. The visitors were again able to play the same team that has played in the last seven matches, and they were fully expected to bring home victory from the Cheshire side for once in a way. When the teams faced each other, the rain came down in torrents, and therefore there was only a mere handful of spectators, a good few of whom hailed from the Chemical Town. The teams faced each other as follows:-Flijut Goal, R. Jones; baoks, T. and J. Lloyd; half-backs, Roberts, Deane and Price forwards, Singleton, Bills, Bartiey, Griffiths and Evans. Linesman, Mr. J. Ellis. Referee, Mr. K. Robertti.-Traumere Rovers Goal, Baxter backs, W. Prioe and Smith; half-backs, J. Leary, J. Margrieson and T. MoChray; forwards, W. Williams, R. Williams, H. Bardsley, W. Spencer and E. Rodgers. Winnirg the toss Tranmere took advantage of the wind, and played down the hill with the heavy rain at their baoks. Bartley started and Flint got away, but W. Price oleared in the nick of time. The Flint men again bore dowa cfla Baxter's obargn .,&sona sending in & good shot. Baxter in savingr ftoficeded a corner, which was got away. The home team came down the field, Deane checking Bardsley in time, obtained possession and sent to Singleton, who ran well up and sent the ball to Griffiths, who planted it in the net. The Rovers were again pressed, and in a few minutes Bills put on No. 2. The home team now played muoh better, and Williams got well away, R. Jones having to kick clear. The home team put on pressure, the Lloyds having a warm time of it. Jones making a cepital save, the claret boys made their way up the incline and pressed, but Smith cleared with a huge kick. Williams getting well in the goal, spoilt a good chance by shooting wide. From the goal-kick, Bartley made a good ran and passed to Singleton, who put on the third goal. The visitors wero now masters of the field, and pressed heavily, No, 4 coming after 30 minutes play. The rain now came down in torrents, and the referee stopped play with the score: Flint, 4 goals Tranmere, nil. No doubt, had the game been played to a finish, the home team would have sustained a heavy defeat, as they found the claret boys in their best form, and to score four goals with wind, hill, and rain, against them is a performance which speaks for itself.
DB7 HUGGINS AND HIS DOG KEPr.ER.-The well-known spectroseopistand astronomer, Dr. Huggins, had a four-footed friend dwelling with him for many years as a regular member of his household, who was a mastiff of very coble proportions by descent, and who bore the great name of Kepler." This dog possessed many rare gifts, which bad secured for him the admiration and regard of a large number of scientific acquaintances, and amongst these was one which he was always ready to exercise for the enter- tainment of visitors. At the close of luncheon or dinner, Kepler used to march gravely and sedately into the room, and ret himself dewn at his master's feet. Dr. Huggins then propounded to him a series of arithmetical questions, which the dog invariably solved without a mistake. Square roots were extracted offhand with the utmost readiness and promptness. If asked what was the square root of 9, Kepler replied by three barks; or, if the question were the square root of 16, by four. Then various questions followed, in which much more complicated processes were involved—such, for instance, as add 7 to 8, divide the sum by 3, and multiply by 2." To such a question as that Kepler gave more consideration, and sometimes hesitated in making up his mind as to where his barks ought finally to stop. Still, in the end, his decision was always right. The reward of each correct answer was a piece of cake, which was held before him during the exercise; but until the solution was arrived at Kepler never moved his eyes from his master's face. The in- stant the last bark was given he transferred his attention to the cake. This notable case of canine sagacity, however, in no way miliates against the re- marks which have recently been made in reference to the ideomotor character of the quadrupedal mind. Dr. Huggins was perfectly unconscious of suggesting the proper answer to the dog; but it is beyond all question that he did so. The wonderful fact is that Kepler had acquired the habit of reading in his master's eye or countenance some indication that was not known to Dr. Huggins himself. The case was one of the class which is distinguished by physiologists as that of expectant attention. Dr. Huggins was himself engaged in working out mentally the various stages of his arithmetical pro- cesses as he propounded the numbers to Kepler, and being, therefore, aware of what the answer should be, expected the døg to cease barking when that number was reached; and that expectation suggested to his own brain the unconscious signal which was caught by the quick eye of the dog. The instance is strictly analo- gous to the well-known case in which a button, sus- pended from a thread and held by a finger near to the rim of a glass, strikes the hour of the day as it swings, and then stops that is, provided the person who holds the button himself knows the hour! The expla- nation of this occurrence is that the hand which holds the button trembles in consequence of its constrained position, and in that way sets the button swinging, and as the attention of the experimenter is fixed upon the oscillation, in the expectation that a definite number of strokes on the glass will occur, his own brain-convolu- sions take care that the movements of the finger shall be in accordance with that expectation.-Edinburgh Review.

DRAUGHT ALIC.- To keep m good condition Keep the ale in a cool, dry, well-ventilated cellar, with a temperature of from fifty t8 sixty degrees. If allowed to fall below fifty degrees the appearance of the beer may be spoilt; if it rises above sixty or sixty- five degrees it may turn sour. Place the cask firmly and securely on its stand, and leave it undisturbed for the first twenty-four hours, as if drawn too soon the beer may never brighten at all. Leave the vent peg loose for twelve hours after the ale is placed on its stand, and then if it has ceased to effervesce, but not unless, dri.e it in tightly. If the ale is not to be used immediately, loosen the vent for three or four minutes each day. With this exception the vent may be left untouched, as if too much air is let into the barrel the ale will become flat. When it is necessary to tilt the barrel, raise it steadily at the back end and fasten it securely, so that it need not afterwards be disturbed. It may then be drawn off and remain good until the very last. As soon as a cask is empty, cork it up at once, or it will become foul.- Ca-esells Dictionary oj Cookery. THROWING OIL ON TROUBLED WATERS.— Experiments calculated to have beneficial results, and which may be the means of saving many lives and much valuable property, were recently made at the entrance of the NCirth Harbour of Peterhead, by Mr. Shields, Wallace Works, Perth. The principle of the invention is that outside a bar an iron pipe be laid along the bottom of the water, at the landward end of which a tank would he situate filled with oil. The oil, oozing through perforated roses," rises to the surface, with the effect of preventing the waves breaking, and turning them into long undulating rollers, over which any f-bil) or boat might pass in comparative safety. A party went on board the steam tug Pride of Scotland, and, before proceeding outside, a bottle of oil was uncorked, was put over- board, and sunk. The oil, as it was forced out by the water, rcse to the surface, and the heavy swell which was rolling was smoothed considerably. The tug then steamed out of the North Harbour through a heavy sea, and was stopped on the centre of the bar for some distance out. The sea at the time was breaking heavily, and several bottles of oil, attached to stones and uncorked, were thrown overboard. The effect of the oil en the waves was soon visible. In- stead of the waves breaking, the sea became quite smooth and glassy looking, and there was a visible softening down of the waves, which, in place of being sharp-crested, were turned into long, undulating seas. The tug was steamed further out to sea, and further experiments were made with the same satisfactory results; and the opinion was generally expressed that the invention would be the means of enabling vessels to pass over dangerous bars with comparative safety. The party returned ashore and watched for some time the part of the sea where the action of the oil upon the waves was still very marked; and it was pointed out that if a few bottles of oil bad such an effect upon a rough sea, how much more satisfactory would be the result if a proper apparatus was fitted up at the entrance of a bar!—Lundee Advertiser.

THE MALLOWS.—The plants of this order are all harmless, and many of them useful. Those best known for their usefulness are the marsh-mallow (Altkcea officinalis) and the cotton (Goaeypium herba- ceum). The first, which in this country is chiefly re- garded as an amollient, is in the hast employed as an article of food, although it is only in times of scarcity that 4t acquires any degree of importance. It is sooked as a pot-herb, and eaten with whatever can be found to flavour it agreeably, as onions, garlic, &c.

IT TOUCHES THE SPOT; Aye, that is what Homocea does. And does it quickly, too-whether it's a toothache or nearalgia, with all their shooting pains, or eczema with its painful and distressing irritation—or piles that make thousands of lives wretched. Rheumatism in the joints or muscles htis been cured even of year's standing-while torlouts, bums and bruises, it's far, very far ahead of auy ointment that has ever been put before the public.
IT DOES ALL ITS GUARANTEED TO DO. Mr. F. W. C. FEGAN writes:—"The Boya' Home, 95, Southwark Street, London, S.E., April 8th, 1893.-Dear air,—I know no preparation hke Homocea' for general usefulness in an institution like this. I have thoroughly tested it by personal application, and amongst our boys, for all kinds of pain and accidents it does all that it is guaranteed to do, and we would not be without it here on any account. It is nut only a wonderful lubricant, but strongly anticeptic, and relieves inflammation and pain almoet instantaneously. Personally, I cannot express my thankfulness for it. I have used it for all kinds of ailments during the last eight years, here, and at sea, and in Canada. For stiffness, sprains, muscular rheumatism, sore throat, mosquito bites, &o., it is a real boon, and no piaise can be too high for it. No one need be afraid to use it for even the most tender part, or even on raw flesh. I have frequently used it for my eyesight with much benefit. I have always kept I I:iippaces I (the veterinary preparation) for stable use. For son backs, broken heels, &o., it is a grand speoifio."
CUTS & BRUISES, HAIR RESTORER, &e. Helvelyn House, near Grasmere. I have seen some wonderful cures by Homooea." It is the best thing I have over tried for cuts and bruises of any kind. It is a perfect hair restorer, as I applied it to my head when the hair was all coming off it stopped it immediately; and it is now growing quite thick again. J. Joins.

men for the stretcher, but after a little while they got a tub, and knocking out the front, witness laid himself down in the tub and the deceased was placed upon him so that he might travel along the road with more ease and com- fort. The stretoher arrived, but deceased would not change, aad he asked that he might be drawn up slowly. About every 20 yards he asked them to stop that he might get air. Before they had got over half the distance, Peter Jones died in has arms. The deceased's body was afterwards taken up to the pit bank and con- veyed home. By Mr. Matthews: They were working a pillar of coal, and had got a piece of it down. There were three separate kinds of coal in the pillar—the lowest, or b¡noh coal, from 1 õ to 18 inohes thiok; the middle coal about two yards thiok; and the top coal about 2 ft. 6 in. thiok. They had worked part of the two lower coals, and that day they were trying to get the top ooal down. It would perhaps have been safer to have bored a hole into the ooal and blasted it out- They put the sprags or props under the coal, and from four to five feet apart, He did not know that the regulations specified a maximum distance of six feet. They used their judgment in fixing the props; he had not been told the distance. There was plenty of timber. They had been working at the pillar for some time. The deceased was a practical collier, and had been at the work for a much longer time than witness. Moses Roberts, the night fireman, had been around that morning. He saw that he had visited the place by the mark he had left. He did not think that fault was to be found with anyone in connection with the accident, and deceased did not say that there was fault upon anyone. The Foreman: Had more props been put up would the accident have been averted P—Wit- ness; No; we put up as many props as we thought necessary. Edward Parry and Robert Roberts, the two men referred to in the above evidence, were called and corroborated the statements made. Morris Roberts, night fireman at Bettisfield Colliery, said he visited and inspected the five- yard seam about twenty minutes to five o'clock on Tuesday morning, the 21st inst. He found the place all right, and marked it so, and the mark was there yet. By Mr. Matthews After the acoident a little top ooal had been brought down. The piece of coal which the men had propped appeared safe. He sounded it. He would not advise a shot as the coal might come down suddenly by a pluok." Peter Jones was a good practical man; he had known him in the same seam for some seven years. The intention was to work the whole of the coal, but to work the bottom ooal first. The rock above was strong. There was no other way of bringing the top coal down. Asked how he defined the orush or pluok," witness said it was the effect of the ground below rising, and the pressure upon the hard rook above caused the top coal to suddenly split up and fall; the indication was a report like a shot and a shake of the ground. The Coroner having summed up the evidence the Foreman said there was no necessity to clear the room. The jury were unanimously of opinion that it was a pure acoident, and that there wes no blame to be attaohed to either the Colliery Company, the managers, or the men working in that particular seam. The Coroner thanked the jury for their ser- vices and discharged them.
