+ A raw days ago a young and pretty girl stepped into a store, where a spruce young man, who had long been enamoured of her, but dared not speak, stood behind the counter selling dry goods. In order to remain as long as possible, she cheapened every- thing. At last she said, I believe you think I am cheating you." Oh, no," said the youngster to me you are always Jair." Well," whispered the lady, blushing, as she laid an emphasis on the word, I would not stay here so long bargaining if you were not so dear." A LANGUID, sentimental, slow Dalton pinback of sweet sixteen went to hear a clergyman famous as a revivalist a few Sundays ago. The clergyman claims her as the quickest case of revival from sentimental langour he has ever seen or heard, for she made the fact known with her dress pinned back as tight as a breeches leg, and when she took her seat the pin sat down first.

A FARMER ON FARMING AND THE RATES. Speaking at a dinner to Captain Conwy's tenant at Rhyddlan, Mr. Morris, of Hendre, the leading tenant on the estate, in proposing the toast of Our Landlord," said they were living ia a time of the greatest depression in agriculture, and he thought that great consideration must be exercised between landlords and tenants, so that the latter might tide through the present bad times, if they were to be tided over at all. They all knew what a heavy pall it had been for them to pay their rents (hear, hear). A reduction of rent would never come, and so they must dismiss that from their minds altogether. There was a further possible remedy, amd that was to get the land at its value (applause). There was really no other way of doing it, and if they were to live as farmers they must have consideration and be in a position to obtain land at its fair value (applause). Some people said they must get a land court before they could receive the consideration they .desired, but, so far as he was concerned, he would try every other court before he would go into the land court (hear, hear). They as farmers felt that the landlords had a great deal to fight against, and a great many hardships to endure (hear, hear). He was thoroughly convinced that the landlords bad a great many wrongs which should be redressed (applause). First of all, the land was encumbered by the levies made upon it in the form of tithe and taxes. If tithe were to be paid at all he oontended the property all round should pay it (hear, hear). If taxes were to be paid with respect to a farm then property all round ought t o pay taxes also (applause). why should the land pay towards keeping in repair the highways? (applause, and hear, hear). Why should the land be burdened with the sehool rate ? (applause). The land, through the farmers, paid more towards the polioe rate than anybody else did (hear, hear). Then, he would ask, who received the benefit of the sanitary rates P The public, of course. Why not, then, tax the public alike towards maintaining the sanitary condition of the country, and not impose the tax upon the farmers as was done P As a body of agriculturists they should fight strenuously against such imposts—applause—and if the landlords did not meet them in a fair way when they were able to do so they could go to the land court (applause). He would suggest that all pay- ments in the form of taxes, rates, ke., should be made in the rent. It a fixed rent were put upon a farmer it would be far better (hear, hear). The landlord would pay all the taxes, and then he would find the injustice of taxing a landlord who received, say, £ 5,000 a year in rents, as compared with the man who received bis £5,000, say, from the sea, and who paid nothing. Why should not the latter pay the same as the landlord? (hear, hear). They should, as landlords, farmers, and labourers, oombine so as to get what they considered was fair and due —applause—and eventually the laws of the country would be so altered as to enable them to live as they desired to live-a happy contented people (applause).

PRESENTATION TO CAPTAIN LOWE.—On Saturday evening a Cgratifying presentation, subscribed for mainly by his Liverpool friends, was made to Captain Lowe, of the Liverpooi and Mostyn steamer Swiftsure. The present took the form of a hand- some chronometer watch andgold goard, together with a purse containing gold, the watch bearing the following inscription: Presented to Captain Lowe by a few friends as a small tribute to his sterling worth and nautical skill.

In view of the levro weather which set in last week, he has suppl. mented his usual Christmas charity by a liberal donation of coal also, and has thus richly deserved the gratitude and thanks of the suffering and poor in the parish.

DRUIDS t. WESTMINSTER ROVERS. These teams played their tie for the Welsh Cup in Wynnetuy-park, Ruabon. Neither team was fully represented, the Rovers being without Ellis, one of their half-backs, who was badly kioked at Rhos on Monday, while the Druids were minus their centre forward Williams, and the oentre half-back Charles Thomas. Druids kioked off, but the Rovers returned well and Beetles cleared. The ball then travelled baokwarda and forwards from goal to goal in quick suceessiom, but the defence waa too good for either side to soore. The Rovers were eventually conceded a corner, but although it was well placed it was got away, and a oorner for the Druids soon afterwards proved equally futile, as did a second eorner oonoeded to the Rovers. A third corner was sent behind. The Druids pressed, and Jones scored for them. The Rovers equalised. Half -time-Druicle, 1; Westminster Rovers, 1; Final result—Westminster Rovers, 4 goals; Druids, 3 goals, WREXHAM v. FLINT. This matoh in the fourth round of the Welsh Senior Club played at Wrexham on Saturday, was witnessed by but a small number of spectators, the winterly weather being responsible for a poor "gate." The meeting between the clubs had been looked forward to, as they were taken as the representative olubs of their respective counties. The cup-holders, however, were prevented from playing three of their forwards, and three of the League team took their plaoe. The "Chemical Lads" played their full team. The ground w<< ■ very hard, but there was a covering of about half an inoh of snow, which rendered it still more difficult for the players to keep their footing. The homesters started, and within a minute of the start Wrexham scored from a oentre by Jones, which was headed through by Hughes. Directly afterwards another pretty run was put in by the forwards, but Davies headed over. Flint obtained a free kick for hands near the Wrexham goal, but were unable to make anything of it, and then the home forwards obtained a similar advantage but Hayes headed outside. For a short time the Wrexham forwards, who held the upper hand, played rather loosely, and although several shots were put in, none of them told. A corner fell to Wrexham, but. the,. could make nothing of it, and Singleton obtaining did some clever work which oame to nothing. After Bob DavieB and Lewis bad had shots at the Flint goal Ben did some clever work, as the result of which Hughes received the ball and added No. 2. The Flint left were the next to show up, and Evans, after a brilliant run along the touch- line, gave Ball a very difftoult shot, which tke latter cleared finely. After some rather un- interesting play Wrexham got away again, and Hughes, who had a good chance, tried a swift low shot, which hit the outside post. Another fruitless corner followed, and direotly after Bob Davies, after some capital work, centred beautifully, the ball striking the bar, and Lewis headed it through. For the remaining minutes of the irst half Flint played up, and were awarded a comer which was sent behind. Halftime— WBEXHAH, 3 FLINT 0. Flint started rather better, and Bartley had the goal at his mercy but shot badly. The Wrexham right went away nicely, and Ben Lewis made a gojd attempt which was frustrated by the opposing half-back. After Jones, the Flint custodian, had dealt with shots from Lewis and Davies, the scene of operations was transferred to the Wrexham end where Ball successfully negotiated three splendid shots in quick succession. For a few minutes play was confined to midfield, but the Flint forwards put more spirit into their play, and Singleton and Griffiths both endeavoured to lower the Wrexham colours, but failed. Some good defensive work waa done by Ellis, who finally cleared, and the home forwards obtained and went down, and for some time the home citadel was in danger. After a lot of hard play Davies notched a fourth point, but in doing so was hurt. After a short break in the game, however, he was able to piay on. Flint returned to the attack, and Ball was loudly cheered for a magnifieent save he effected. The ball was qaiokly taken to the other end, where the homesters obtained a corner, which was, however, sent behind. Then Evan Williams and Lewis shot, but neither of their efiort took effect, but a comer fell to the cup-holders soon after, and from this a fifth goal was scored. After this Flint seemed thoroughly disorganised, and a sixth goal was soon put past Jones as the result of some good play on the part of Harrison and Hughes. The inside forwards on the Flint side did combine once and put in some pretty passing, but they were brought up by the Wrexham baoks, and a rather one-aided game was brought to a conclusion soon afterwards, and the result being WBEXHAX, 6 goals; FLINT, 0.

Sankey, E. Bryan, Jaa. Williams, Wm. Freeman, Bebt. Lloyd, Thoe. Griffiths, H. A. Cope, H. T. Smith, T. A. Lambert and J. Garner. THE DANGMOTTS SHAFT ON HOLWAY ROAD. A special meeting of the Highway Board was held on the 15th ult., to consider the question of the running in of a shaft on Holway road, near the Lower Brognallt, when instructions were given for the protection of the road and the public. At the meeting of the committee on the 3rd inst., a letter was read from Mr. Alfred Thomas, official liquidator of the Hol- way Mines Co., stating that instructions had been given to Captain Hotchkiss to fill in the shaft.—Mr. Sankey stated that the shaft had since been filled in.—The contract of Mr. John Hughes, builder, was accepted for the repair of the wall at Brognallt, at a cost of Li 18s. Od- LTHE SANITARY COMMITTEE. At the meeting of the Sanitary Committee a letter was read from the Rural Sanitary Authority with reference to the Pollution of St. Winefride's stream.-The Committee recom- that the letter should be laid before a committee of the whole Board. MARKET COMMITTEE. At the meeting of the Market Committee the report of the public meeting on the question of the additional storey to the Town Offioes and Working-men's Clubroom was submitted. FINANCE. The accounts were considered by the Finanee Committee and reoommended for payment, amounting to L122 15a. lOd., which included instalment of loan and interest :due to the Royal Insurance Co., L74 15s. 2d.—A claim for 2.. 6d. was received from Mr. Isaao Taylor for rent of the Roft Tob. The claim was admitted and a oheque granted. THE NEW TOWN OFFICES CONTRACT A certificate was received from the architect (Mr. Lloyd Williams, Denbigh) for the payment of XIOO to Mr. Abel Jones, the contractor, on account of the contract for the new buildings, which was accordingly passed for payment. INCOME TAX. A claim was received for income tax from the oollector, Mr. T. Jones.- The;Clerk said he should recommend that payment be deferred and the claim appealed against. The recom- mendation of the Clerk was accepted. DELAPIDATED AND DANGEROUS BUILDINGS. The Inspector submitted the report, in oom- Sliance with the request of the Board, of the elapidated and dangerous buildings in the town. Various places were enumerated where roofs were out of repair, walls in a dangerous state, chimneys leaning out of the perpendicular aed several houses were stated to be unfit for habitation.—Mr. Freeman drew attention to one £ lace in Whitford-street,—a house kept by ilewelyn Price, which he had not heard had been reported upon.—Mr. Lambert observed if the Inspector reported upon all the houses in the town there would be no room in the book. —Mr. Cope: Perhaps he has had to leave out the worst on that acoount.-The Inspector: We did inspect the place and when we told Price about it he smital. We did not know who was the owner.—Mr. Smith: It is absurd to leave out the principal cases. It is evident that the Inspector when he makes out a report winks at one case and puts down another.—The Chair- man The reason for that was, the man smiled (laughter).—Mr. Lambert: It appears then if anyone only smiles at our Inspector, he takes no notice of what his duty calls him to do (renewed laughter).—The Clerk: As far as the case of Priee is concerned, if the Inspector put notice in, the question was who to proceed against.— The Inspector said, Price did not occupy the place save as a workshop, He lived with his sister.—Dr. Williams remarked that it could be termed a dangerous structure, if it fell down it might fall upon him and smother him. The case was different to the other cases reported upon, where there were only crooked chimneys or delapidated walls. The house in question was crumbling to ruin. He considered that the report should have consisted of two sections of the list-houses that were dangerous and pro- perty delapidated. The Medical Officer might help the Inspector in the former. There was also a plaee up Penyball where the roof was nearly off. He proposed that the list be divided and made out under the two heads named.— Mr. Lambert seconded the motion which was earned. LAWYERS AND THE LAW—LEGAL LESSONS ON THE CHEAP." The Clerk and Mr. Smith in the above discussion got into a heated legal argument, in the course of which the Chairman remarked that he thought those legal discussions should be raised outside the Board.—Mr. Smith replied that they were always being told that they were on the wrong track.—The Chairman said it was only waste of time to discuss it in the way they were doing.—Mr. Bryan We who know but very little law should not object to it, as we get to know a little by the discussion.—The Chair- man We prefer to go on with the business than have it. THE ADDITIONAL STOREY TO THE TOWN BUILDING. THE BOARD IN A MUDDLE. The Clerk asked for instructions as to the borrowing of the X700 towards the erection of the Town Offices. Mr. Bryan suggested that it stand over for consideration with the other question of the XSOO Mr. Lambert agreed. The Clerk observed that the latter question had been referred to the committee of the whole Board. Mr. Bryan said he should prefer that the discussion should be in open Board. Mr. Smith agreed that the discussion should be open. Mr. Lambert said he had no desire to have the matter discussed in committee. Mr. Smith proposed, and Mr. Lambert seconded that the matter be discussed by the Board: The proposition was carried. Mr. Lambert said at the Finance Comtaittee they were told by their Clerk that they could not ge* the extra S800 as a loan. Objection was raised by the Clerk that the statement was not made at the committee. Une member observed that the Chairman of Finance was in the chair at the time. It was submitted that the statement was made, and Mr Lambert continuing said, it was not known whether they should not have to go in for public subscriptions in order to get the building erected in its entirety. The public were not told at the meeting that they would probably have to put their hands into their pockets in order to got the building erected. Had that been told them they probably would never have consented to the plans of the additional storey, The Board went before the public with the feeling that there would be no difficulty in obtaining the extra funds required, and when the question was put to the Clerk he put them off with the proverb Sufficient unto to day is the evil thereof" or something to that effect. There was not then the remotest probability in the minds of anyone that the JE800 would have to b" raised by public subscription, and he would say that it could not be done. They could not expect their landowners to do much in these depressed times. Dr. Williams observed that they would be 1 iniuenced in the matter by the drainags ques- 1 tion. If they comply with the request of the Rural Sanitary Authority it will cost a great j deal of money. He had long thought that they were drifting into a dead lock all round, and there were only two things that could extrioate j, them out of the difficulty, a rate double what it is now, or an extension of the area of the Board. ] The Clerk eaid the only question now was to the obtaining the f 800, Dr. Williams: Our opinions may be in- fiuenced by the drainage question. We can do one thing but not both. Mr. Freeman said he could quite endorse what Mr. Lambert had said. He was at the time of opinion that they would not have much difficulty in obtaining the money, when it was only 1400 as they were then told, but when it turned out that Y,800 was required then the members in his part of the room were anxious to know how they were to get the money before they were inclined to go in for the additional work. Mr. Smith: And the Clerk stated that under no circumstances had the Board any power to borrow the money; they couid not legally borrow it. The Clerk I did not say that. It was a question of ways and means' Mr, Smith: I cannot be interrupted. The Chairman: I agree with you it is not right or proper to interrupt a member when speaking; it disarranges his thoughts. I have condemned the practice before. Mr. Smith said, the Clerk told them that they could not under any circumstances borrow the money because there was no statutory power for doing so, for the additional storey which was intended as an Assembly Room. It did not come within the provisions of the act by which they could borrow money for such a building. That statement their Clerk had laid down clearly and emphatically. He did not think that it was feasible to raise the money or reasonable that they could take the hat round." He was bound to say that the Clerk should have advised the Board whether they could obtain the money. The fact of the Board going before the public with a statement which was directly contradictory to what was now be- fore the Board was calculated to make the members of the Local Boaed the laughing stock of the town. They had to a certain ex- tent acted unwisely, and they were likely to be laughed at when it was found they could not get the money. The Clerk was wrong in not advising them at the time, and it was now use- less going on with it. Mr. Biyan said, all who spoke at the meeting gave those present to understand that the money could be borrowed and calculations were made and no one contradicted them, The meeting was led to believe that the money could be borrowed for 30 years at 31 per cent. He was sorry to find that the ratepayers had been de- ceived at the public meeting. Dr. Williams said twenty years ago the same question had been gone into, over the very same ground as they were then traversing, and it ended in a suggestion that the new building should be oalled, as part and parcel of the municipal buildings-the Corn Exchange-by which means the money could have been borrowed. The Chairman said Mr. Lambert was per- fectly right when he said he was sure that all (including the speaker) were under the im- pression that that this money could be borrowed. He did not know whether they were right or not in entertainilig that impression, but they had confidence in their Clerk. From what he then said they felt that he had a plan in view by means of which the money could be borrowed to erect the second storey. When the members wanted to press the question and to go into details they were simply told U Sufficient unto the day is the atil thereof." At the ratepayers meeting the Clerk sat at his side, and he (the clerk) assured him that the Board could get the money at 3i per cent. He knew they could, but he spoke to the Clerk for confirmation, and on the strength of what the Clerk said he (the chairman) stated to the meeting that the money could be borrowe4 for 30 years at t per oent. and that it would be a cost on the rate of about lid. in the pound. The Clerk did not contradict that at all; he supported the idea that the money could be borrowed and repaid as he had said. Now, undoubtedly he found they had been misled and they had gone before the public and made a statement. The ratepayers at the meeting had desired to go into the ways and means, but they were told that that was a matter for the Local Board to deal with. That was suggested by the Clerk. Now it was for the Clerk to explain what plan he had by which the Board could borrow the money for the erection of the second storey. The Clerk would probably clear the way by whish the Board would be enabled to carry out the wishes of the I very representative meeting of the ratepayers (hear, hear). The Clerk said he took exception to some of the remarks made by Mr. Lambert, and also to some Mr. Smith had said. But he agreed with what Mr. Smith had said, that there was con- siderable doubt about their being able to borrow the whole amount required at the time. He (the clerk) agreed with what the Chairman said, that he (the olerk) had a plan which he thought if adopted by the Board, would enable them to raise the money, He did not say that the money could not be borrowed he expressed his opinion. He doubted very much whether they could borrow the whole of the amount: a portion of the amount he felt satisfied they could borrow- There was nothing in the Acts, either of 1875 or 1890, that said they should not have it. It was simply a matter of opinion whether they would be able to get the power from the Local Government Board. Years ago, upon reading the section of the act governing borrow- ing powers, he came to the conclusion that the Assembly Room could not be built, but that something else could, and it was considered and thought to call it the "Corn Exchange." Nothing was done, however, as the Board were engaged upon the building of the Market Hall. By the seotion of the act the question arose- was the proposed second storey within the meaning of those under the heading of per- manent works, for the erection of which certain borrowing powers were granted ? The Chairman objected to the lengthy ex- planation of the Clerk, upon the construction of the Acts and observed that the Clerk was asked for an explanation to remove the impression as to the borrowing of money. The Board re- quired in a few concise words, the way in which he suggested the Board could obtain the money. Dr. Williams said he thought the Clerk would have told them by now had he been allowed to pio- ceed. It seemed to him that it depended upon the character of the building. The Clerk That was just what I was going to say. The Chairman You have got your brief there. How long will it take P The Clerk replied that he oonld give his answer in writing or in a few words. Mr. Lambert observed that it was putting the cart before the horse.. They should have gone into the question before going to a public meeting. Dr. Williams: Well, well; we cannot gather np spilt milk. Let the Clerk answer us, and if we cannot obtain the money abandon the thing, The Clerk said he could not say whether they could or could not obtain tie money on loan. It depended entirely upon the construction the Local Government Board would put upon the seotion of the Act he had read in addition to the resolution passed at the public meeting. His candid opinion was, that, after reading what could be done under the amended Act and the cases decided, that it was worth while applying to the Local Government I Board for their sanotion to borrow money to complete that building inasmuoh as the Board was backed up by the unanimous vote of the owners and rate- payers of the district. There were also several other things that could be brought to bear upon the application. There was the utility of the room for the assembling of the Parish and District Councils. Under-the old Act he did not think they would grant the sanction, but under the new Act he thought they would. There was another string to their bow. They could go in for charging for the removal of the clock tower. They could arrange it by means of which they could obtain half the money and it was a question whether the Board could rris* J the remaining JBIOO. Since the matter had rome on four persons not interested in the town had promised him JB5 each towards the second storey. Mr. Lambert: That wont go far. The Clerk But if 50 more did the same it would go further. He would simply say they ought to get the money, and that they would by making the beat possible case to the Local Government Board. In the second place, if they could not get it, the Board could try to get the other scheme, to borrow UOO and try to make up the remainder by subscrip- tions. Dr. Williams proposed that the Clerk make enquiries of the Local Government Board and obtain a definite answer by a eertain time, then the Board would know how to work. Mr. Smith thought they should take counsels opinion. Dr. Williams said it was waste of time to talk about that. Mr. Lambert seconded the proposition. Mr. Bryan: What is our position with the Contractor P He cannot go on without a definite answer. The Clerk eaid it was in a nutshell. They bad simply to ask him if h& could wait some little time until they got an answer from the Local Government Board. Mr. Cope asked how they stood in regard to the first scheme ? The Chairman said they had the power to borrow X700 at 3i per oent. Mr. Freeman said he did not think that anyone wished to cry off the second plan. Mr. Lambert: I dont. Mr. Garner Neither do I. The Chairman thought it was wise that the note should be sounded. Mr. Bryan said there might be some one not of the same opinion. Dr. Williams remarked there was a measure for their liking. If a man could not afford to drink champagne, he must go in for beer (laughter). He was quite agreeable to the scheme when he thought it was .only a matter of X400, but now it was double that sum, it altered the view they could take of it. Mr. Smith said they should have to obtain a level 2000 before the place was completed. Mr. Griffiths asked could they not adopt the plans of the building designed before those from which the one-storey building was now being erected, and whioh, though considered too expensive, would be less than the cost of the amended building.—It was pointed out that it could not be done except at great expense. Mr. Smith said there was no reasonable probability that they would be able to borrow the money, and in that view he did not feel at all disposed to (what he thought) wasting time and money in going on with it. He felt that to go on with it would be to land the Board in a terrible muddle if they could not borrow the money. The resolution was passed, and on the motion of Mr. Bryan, seconded by Mr. Freeman, it was resolved that the Clerk either" see, or write to Mr. Abel Jones, the contractor, and enquire if he could wait until the Board received a reply from the Local Government Board, before proceeding further with the work, and to see if he intended charging the Board anything for the delay; that an extraordinary meeting of the Board be oalled directly a reply was received from the Local Government Board. THB ARBITBATION. The Clerk said he had received a letter from Mr. Kelly, Mold, with reference to the arbitration case between the County Council and the Local Board, in the disputed claims for the maintenance of the main roads. The plans attached to the statement was objeoted to on the ground that the main road was marked wrongly, it being stated that the main road on the west sids of the town terminated at Pendre, whereas it should be at Beuno Cottage. The letter pointed out that the County Surveyot and the Local Board Surveyor had measured the road, and the Local Board Surveyor had agreed that the main road terminated at Gerddi Beuno and not at Pendre. SAOTTABY COIMTTRE. The Board during the afternoon sat in Committee on the sanitary question, as to the discharge of drainage into St. Winefride's stream. A STEP rOBWABD (P) Application was made by Mr. W. A.

MEDICAL AND OTHER TESTIMONIES. Thirteen months under hospital treatment. Eleven months on a water bed.
CURED IN ONE MONTH BY "HOMOCEA." Mitcham, S.W. I wish to inform you that the use of your Homocea has produced most satisfactory results. Briefly the case is as follows:—A young woman under hospital treatment for thirteen months for disease of the hip joint, came to consult me after the splints and other appliances had been removed she kept the recumbent position for eleven months on a water bed and suffered much pain, and could neither walk nor go upstairs without enduring the most severe agonies of pain, all apparently associated with the origin and distribution of the sciatio nerve; in bed, also, the least movement of the affected limb gave much pain. I came to a satisfactory diagnosis that the pain was entirely of a neuralgic nature, and no longer due to the diseased hip, in which I believe that I waseupported by the advisers she had at the hospital; therefore, I at once put her on such local and and internal treatment as might benefit her, but with little if any result. At last I tried your Homooea," and just a month's use, the young woman is, I might say, quite well; the improvement, however, was very soon apparent; she can now walk comfortably, and easily ascend a flight of stairs, and does not complain of any pain whatever. ««, M.B., Univ. Dubl., L.R.C.S.L., &c." "Homooea" is sold by most Chemists, at Is. lid. and 2s. 9d. per box or will be sent post free on receipt of stamps to The Homocea Company, 21, whatever.

A DAY AT 'Ai'i'R 'AMPSTEAD is thoroughly enjoyed by the East End poor. as in amply proved by the immense crowds who flock there every Bank Holiday. The pure air and bracing atmosphere to be found on the breezy heights of llighgate and its neighbourhood .cannot fail to benefit those who can only spend a i ow hours in their midst. Holidays, however, cannot be fully enjoyed by those persons who are suffering from disease, Holloway's Pills and Ointment can speedily remove this drawback to pleasure if a fair trial is only afforded thorn. As a cure for rheumatism, gout, fevers, diarrhoea, diseases of the skin, scrofula, ulcers, sores, barns, or old wounds, they are beyoad competition.
