GREENFILD SCHOOL. j Plans of the new School for Greenfield were laid npon the table, and the Clerk was desired to arrange for a special meeting to consider the same. ATTENDANCE. j A conversation took place upon the question of encouraging regular attendance at school, and the variousjjmethods adopted in other schools. It was thought that a syatein of tickets, and prizes at the end of the year, would be an encouragement. The Attendance Officer, in reply to the Chairman, said the difficulty was to teach the chronic irregulars, and improve, or encourage them to improve. There was no difficulty with the good children, whose parents attended to their eduoation, but the same people year after year, while they had children of school age, were brought up and fined.—Mr. T. Humphreys drew attention to the practice of ten o'clock scholars, which he thought should be looked into. THE PUBLIC POWERS THAT BE. The Clerk said, as directed Ooy the Board, he had enquired of the Education Department, what enlargements were being carried out at the St. Winefred'a Catholic Schools, and the Bagillt National. The reply received was to the effect that the Department had approved of a new building for the infant department in the Catholio Sohools in lieu of the unsatisfactory room. No plans had been submitted of any enlargements at the Bagillt National Schools. The Inspector had reported that the infant department was very crowded. The Chairman thought they should be made acquainted with what alterations were being made in the Rohools of the district.—Mr. S. Jones was of opinion that the managers of the schools were a ting in ignorance, and it would be well if the Clerk intimated that the Board was the educational authority for the district, and ought to be made acquainted with any contemplated alterations. —The Chairman They know it—Mr. S. Tones: It is not right we should be so ignored.—The Chair- man They get the use of the attendance officer.- Mr. Bryan: What we want is all schools under public control.—The matter dropped. BELXOIOUS INSTRUCTION. Mr. S. Jones gave notice of motion that he would eall attention at the next Board meeting to the religious instruction given at the Board Schools and L uve a resolution thcivon.

A WEALTHY PAUPER.—A pauper named Joseph Taylor, a tailor by trade, and formerly living in Manchester, died in the St. Asaph Workhouse, and on examining him the officials were astonished to find the sum of L49 lis. 6d. carefully seoured under a leathern belt which the deoeased wore round his waist. He had been an inmate of the workhouse for many years, and it is supposed that he received the money, which was mostly in gold, from his relatives, who are stated to be well-off. OOUNTY COURT.-At this Court on Friday, before bis Honour Judge Sir Horatio Lloyd, J. O. Jones, grocer, of Rhyl, sued Mrs. Culley, caretaker of the Y.M.F.S. Rooms, Rhyl, for the recovery of 17s. 8d. for goods sold and delivered. It appeared that Mrs. Culley prepared a tea for the members of the Y.M.F.S. some months ago, and procured the goods which were the subject of the present olaim for the purpose. The committee of the Y.M.F.S. paid her for the goods supplied, but she had not settled the account with the plaintiff, who swore that she had separate estate, and that her husband was in regular employment as a gardener at Epworth College. The defendant did not put in an appearance, and his honour ordered payment in a month.—Wm. E. Williams sought to recover from Mrs. Highway, Princes-street, Rhyl, J61 18s. for rent. Mr. Alun Lloyd appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. F. J. Gamlin for the defendant. Mr. Lloyd intimated that the defendant had £2,000 left her by her husbsnd but Mr, Gamlin denied this, and submitted that his olient had great difficulty to make both ends meet. His defence was that his client was sued in her proper person instead of as administratrix to her husband. His honour made an order for payment of the full amount with court fees by instalments of 4s. per month.—Robert Jones, trustee to Messrs. Jones and Roberts, builders, Rhyl, sued the North Wales Hydropathic Company for £ 13 alleged to be due, to the firm of Jones and Roberts by the defendant with reference to certain building work carried out by the firm for defendants. Mr. Alun Lloyd appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. J. Pierce Lewis tor the defendant. Mr. Alun Lloyd said that the point was this:—There was an item of quantities, X20, and his olients tendered for certain building work at the Hydropathic establishment, and the defendants contended that the contractors should have paid the sum of j620 they now cuunter- claimed. Evidence having been given aa to the facts of the case and trade customs, His Honour reserved judgment.

Lloyd, Top y Fron, (one of the members of the Board) presided, and the room was literally packed. The first part of the evening was devoted to a ohildreu's entertainment, Misa Minnie Thomas, the mistress, being conductor. The children acquitted themselves exceedingly well, their efforts being frequently loudly applauded.

BRYNFORD. THE FLINTSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL AND THE BRYNFORD TITHE. At Holywell County Court, on Tuesday, before His Honour Sir Horatio Lloyd, judge, an action was brought by Harriett Williamson, Edge Lane, Liverpool, Edw. Ratcliffe, Victoria Park, Wavertree, Liverpool, and the Right Hon. the Earl of Denbigh, to recover from the Flintshire County Council, the sum of 12s. "money paid by the plaintiffs to the use of the defendants at their request and under compulsion of law."— Mr. H. T. Smith, Holywell, appeared for the plaintiffs, and Mr. Alun Lloyd for the defenoe. Mr. Smith in opening the case said it was an action against the Flintshire County Council to recover 12s. Id., money paid by the plaintiffs to the use of the defendants at their request and under compulsion of law. It was a remarkable if not unique action. His clients were the owners of the Brynford Hall estate, situate in and about Holywell. Among that property were three apportionments numbered on the tithe map 411 F, 412 F, and 414 F, respectively. About the year 1847 a new road was made from the King's Arms Hotel, Holywell, through Stamford Farm, just beyond the Holywell Union Workhouse. At that time part of the apportionment was aoquired by the Turnpike Commissioners for the purpose of making the road and the proportion of tithe on the land was paid by the Commissioners to the owner of the tithe, Vis. Feilding, until 1864. At that time the Rector of Brynford acquired certain tithe rent- charge by the purchase from Viscount Feilding, among it being the three apportionments named. From 1866 to 1884, the Turnpike Commissioners continued to pay a sum of money to the Rector of Brynford, in nIptOt of those p: :od of land. In 1884 the Turnpike Truste^ Voc coased, and the Holywell District Highway lioard succeeded to the management of the roads, and they con- tinued to pay the tithe until the Flintshire County Council was created, when the roads were transferred to that body, who refused to pay the tithe, though numerous applications were made, and they were advised as to their legal liability. Mr. A. Lloyd We admit the numerous and incessant correspondence applying for it. Mr. Smith The Rector of Brynford wrote- Mr. Lloyd As he is not the plaintiff in the case his letters are not evidence. Mr. Smith: The present plaintiffs are the owners and they were sued by the Rector under the new Tithe Act. Mr. Lloyd: The Rector is not a party to the proceedings at all. Mr. Smith wants to read his correspondence, but there is no privity. We quite admit the incessant application. Mr. Smith said it was the correspondence from the Clerk to the Council that had bearing on the case. On the 9th June last, Mr. Kelly wrote to the effect that on principle he did not see why he (the Rector) should not be paid. He was taking Counsels opinion upon the point. Mr. Lloyd said he quite agreed to the principle that the Rector must get his tithe and he was going to show him how to get it without getting it from the County Council. He should like to know what was the tithe commuted at when the portion of land was taken for the road and what deduction was made to the tenant ? Mr. Smith said that had been done. Another letter written by Mr. Kelly stated that he intended to advise the Finance Committee of the Council to pay the amount. The Committee however declined to pay it, aud on the 25th October, a further letter was written stating that the County Council did not recognise their liability. His Honour: Do I gather that for more than 40 years the persons representing the road paid the tithe ? Mr. Smith Yes, that is so. His Honour: I want to see a short way out of it. The County Council stepped into the shoes of the Highway Board and its liabilities. How are they going to dispute it ? Mr. Smith: Mr. Lloyd sets up a technical defence. Mr. Lloyd: I acoept their privileges without the obligations. His Honour: You cannot do that very well. Mr. Lloyd That is hardly the point before the Court to-day. I expeet it is hardly possible to have an opinion from your Honour with regard to it to-day. The first point, so that we may deal with it, is, they sue us for money paid. The Tithe Act of 1836 and the amending Aots subsequent and up to the tithe Act of 1891, have expressly forbidden personal liability, sec. 67, of 6, and 7. William IV, o. 71, makes no person whomsoever personally liable. The only method of recovery is by distraint in manner provided by Act of Parliament, in- cluding the 21 days notice of which we have heard so much in the past, sub.-sec. 9, of sec. 2, of the Tithe Act, 1891, does away with the question of personal obligation. The next point—I want to know whether the County Council are the owners or oecupiers. If owners the plaintiff is out of Court, if occupiers, they are equally out of Court. His Honour: As to the Reotor it does not matter which you are. Mr. Lloyd: I thought to give them a little en- couragement whoever they may be (laughter). Mr. Lloyd having referred to the issue of the summons as against owner, and ocoupier, put the question whether the highway as a highway was liable to tithe tent charge at all? The County Council could not be the owner, and the owners had been sued una had paid the tithe, and thia action was to recover back the tithe from the occupier. Mr. Smith: That is where we join issue. The Highway Authority are not ooonpiers, they are owners of easements. He also pointed out that under the Turnpike Trustees' Aot, the highway authorities were entitled to aperpetaalright of way. The freehold could never pass to the highway authority. The owner of the right of way was neither ooeupier nor owner within the meaning of the Tithe Act. Mr. Lloyd: What do you rule ? His Honour: Nothing at all. As I understand Mr. Smith, he takes this land apart from the Tithe Act altogether; th-t the County Council are the owners of easent. 11 ..living nothing to do with tithe. Mr. Lloyd, in xepiy to Mr. Smith, said he was not instructed to admit anything about the payment of tithe sinoe the passing of the Turnpike Aot. Mr. Smith proceeded to read reports of how the application for the tithe was received at the County Council meetings. One stating that a member said their action would hasten disestablishment by two or three years." His Honour: I suppose that is the bottom of it (laughter). Mr. Smith submitted that the County Council took over all obligations and liabilities of the Highway authorities, and the Council was liable to indemnify the plaintiffs. It was presumptive evidence rendering them liable to a certain contract made when taking the transfer of the roads under the Local Govern- ment Act of ISiB. Evidence was ten oalled for the plaintiff. Diooe8anT»ert?'i_°lerk to Mr' Cle»ver> in the man St" Asaph, produced'the tithe map and the apportionments o* 411, 15s. 3d was The apportionments m th„ lo4i. Mr. Walter Garner, Holvwoll A » plaintiff, «aid owners of '41 0 Mthe Williamson and Mr. Ratoliffe, the owhersofll^ were the Earl of Denbigh in addition to the other two. The Stamford road cut right through the field No. 411, and the plaintiffs owned each side. With regard to the other two, the road cot both of them. Applioation was made to him by the Rector of Brynford for 9s. 9d. tithe which had formerly been paid by the Highway Board. Action was entered into the County Court, and the claim was paid into Court. He instructed Mr. Smith to apply to the County Council for the amount, but he did not get it. By Mr. Lloyd He believed the claim was against them as owners and oooupiers of the land. Rev. David Jones, Reotor of Brynford, said he purchased the tithe for ;Gi,600. With regard to 411, Brynford Hall Estate, according to the state- ment given him at the time, paid 9s. 9d. tithe, and the Highway Board 5s. 6d. in respect of part of the meadow. By Mr. Lloyd: Mr. Edw. Jones aoted as his ascent for some time. He had collected it for Visoonnt Feilding. Mr. H. A. Cope said he was Clerk to the Turnpike Commissioners, from the death of the late Mr. Edw. Jones, in the year 1876. He produced the books showing the payment of tithe from 1846 to 1864 to Visoount Feilding, and subsequently by the High- way Board. By Mr. Lloyd: He did not enquire into the liability. He took it as an obligation. His Honour reserved judgment.
.— MOSTYN. A GOOD SIGN.-On Wednesday, the fine steamer the Isle of Anglesey arrived in Mostyn with a cargo of about 2,000 tons of iron ore for the Mestyn Iron Works. END OF THE IRON WORKS STRIKE. We are gratified to announce that the Btriko at the Mostyn Iron Works, which has extended over several weeks, and involved considerable suffering among the families of the men, has been brought to an end. On Wednesday, the men waited upon Mr. Storey, the manager, and expressed their readiness to return to work upon the terms originally offe.ed them by their employers. The strike has therefore praotioally terminated, but some time must necess- arily elapse before the Iron Works can again be in full operation.. A TAILOR'S ESCAPADE. Edwin Jones, tailor, of Ffynnongroew, was on Tuesday brought up in custody at Holywell Polioe Court, before Messrs. R. Sankey and Wm. Jones, charged with wilfully setting fire to some baskets in a van belonging to Joseph Evans, hawker, Chester. It appeared that the van was standing on a pieoe cf waste land between Mostyn and Llinegar known as Llyn Gelletts, and was occupied by the complainant and his wife. In the middle of Monday night, when the owners were in bed, the prisoner attempted to enter the van, alleging that his wife (although he is a single man) was sheltering there. This conduct he repeated thrioe during the night, and on the last oooasion on looking around the van complainant found that some baskets at the rear had been set on fire. The ground about was strewed with matohes and wax vestas which had been struck, and oharred paper, and in one basket a collar and necktie were found burning. Fortunately the baskets were wet after the rain, or the consequences might have been very serious. -Prisoner alleged that his tie caught fire as he was lighting his pipe.—The prisoner, who was arrested in bed at his lodgings in Ffynnon- groew that morning, by Sergeant Jones, of Mostyn, was ordered to pay 4s. damages, 20a. fine, & 12.. 6d costs, or to go to prison for three wookei-The money was paid.

Operations will be commenced shortly to adapt the buildings to the Company's purposes and to ereot new ones. PBOPEBTY SALE- —We weuld direct attention to the highly important sale of freehold property to be oonduoted by Mr Freeman at the Stag Inn on Wednesday afternoon next. It is seldom that such valuable property can be obtained in each a pros- perous district as Bagillt, and consequently the sale will exoite unusual interest. MUSICAL SUCCESS,—At a competitive meeting held on Wednesday, April 11th, at Albion Park, Chester, Mr. E. Lloyd Jones of Nelson-street, Chester, and formerly of Bagillt, carried off two prizes, viz. for the singing of the solo cc Gwlad y delya," in which ten oompeted, and as leader of a party for the best rendering of the piece Awn ym mlaen."

BUCKLEY. PETTY SESSIONS: THUHD AT.—Before Messrs H. Hurlbutt (in the ohair) and H. Corbett. HKDAWOEEIKd KIWBBS' ratvjia. Ralph Mesham, fireman, was summoned on two charges for exposing naked lights and for failing to report the presence of gas in the Mount Pleasant Colliery, on the 17th February.—Mr. Bradley, who prosecuted, explained that defendant wilfully exposed three naked lamps in the mine, at the same time knowing thri there was gas in the vicinity. It was endangering the lives of many men, and was a most serious offence, because defendant himself was master over the shift of men working where the offence occurred.-Charles Hall, manager, stated that defendant was working over the body of men who were relaying the return air passage in the premier seam. There was some gas present, and an explosion occurred in consequence of the naked lights being exposed.—Frank Roberts, shot-lighter, deposed to working with defendant, and to eeeing three naked lamps near the lamp shed and in the pit. It was defendant's duty to see that all the lamps were locked. There waa a slight explosion, and he (witness) was knooked down Charles Hall (re-called) said that defendant should have reported the presence of gas to John Oatherall, fireman, to the under manager, or to himself. He never reported it at all—John Catherall, head fireman, said that defendant had never reported the presence of gas in the oolliery to him. There were 85 men and boys in the pit at the time, and the consequences might have been very serious. He saw the three naked lights on the day in question, and it was defendant's duty to see that the lamps were locked. Defendaut stated that he thought there was no gas present when the lamps wele naked. As soon as the explosion occurred he took steps to see that no harm was done. Cross-examined by Mr. Bradley: They had all agreed to hush the matter up previously to the manager hearing.—The Bench considered the case a most serious one, and fined defendant £2 and 8s. 6d. oosts in each oase. They, however, informed defendant that they would suspend the fine till after the next sitting, owing to his being out of work through illhealth. TUCPOBAST AUTHORITY.

VOLUNTBKB PBUB DiamBunoit.-The annual priae distribution to the best ahota belonging to the Flint Company took plaoe at the Town Hall on Thursday evening. The ohair was taken by Colonel Cooke (commander of the battalion), and he was supported on the platform by the Mayor (Alderman Dyson), Major Dyson, the Rev. W. Ll. Nicholas (reotor of Flint and chaplain of the battalion), and Captain Isaac Taylor (Holywell Company).—The Chairman, in opening the proceedings, said it gave him very great pleasure to be present upon so auspicious an oooasion, ashe was always proud to meet his old friends and members of the Flint Company. He was proud to eay the Flint Company always appeared in strong numbers in camp, and behaved themselves while there in a very oreditable manner, and although their oompany numbered 103 in strength, he was proud to say every one of them was effioient. He was glad to inform them that this year their battalion was to have the honour of forming guards and escorts on the occasion of the Royal viait to Carnarvon, and that arrangemeents had been made for the encampment to take plaoe at Carnarvon during that week. The battalion now reached the grand total of 1,250, aud he could say without fear of contradiotion, that of that number 99i per cent, were effioient, whioh he considered very satisfactory. He then called upon the reotor to distribute the prizes.-The Reolor expressed his heartfelt thanks for the honour oonferred upon him. Anything connected with the Volunteer movement always received his cordial sympathy and warmest support, and in conclusion urged the men to take great interest in their drill, be effioient with their rifle, and always be well ditoiplined whether their offioer's eye was upon them or not. The band struok up with See the Conquering Hero Comes." The second and third prizes oonsisted of suits of clothes, and were on by Bugler Samuel Bartley and Samuel Joseph Bennett respectively.

MOLD. DEDICATION OF THE RAIKES MEMORIAL WINDOW AT THE PARISH CHURCH. The servioe at the Parish Church on Sunday morning last was of a special character, it being the occasion of the unveiling of the memorial window to the late Right Hon. H. Cecil Raikes, M.P. The saored ediiioe, which during the previous week had been entirely in the hands of workmen and cleaners was filled by a devout and attentive congregation, a portion of the north aisle being set apart for the accommodation of the local volunteer corps. After the processional hymn Soldiers of Christ, arise," the Wenite was sung to a chant from 4 Meroer,' followed by the Psalms to Chants by Caley,' Smith,' and Harris.' The list lesson was read by the Very Rev. the Dean of St. Asaph, who then pro- ceeded to the south aisle where the new window is situate, and attended by the Vioar (Rev. E. M. Roberick), and the Churchwardens (Messrs. John Corbett and T. B. Williams), be performed the dedication oeremony. Chants by I Gosi' were used for the Te Deum, the Dean reading the second lesson after which Russell's popular chant was sung for the Jubilate. The Vioar intoned the servioe and the choir sting the authem "SiDg praises unto the Lord (Gounod), with admirable effect. The Dean of St. Asaph was the preacher, and he took his text from the epistle for the day-" As the servant of God." In the oourse of his sermon be said that in a memorial window we should expeot three things— That it should be worthy of the building in whieh it was placed that it should remind us of some Holy character or some point of heavenly doctrine, and that the ohoioe of the subject should be one that the eye of affeotion might be able to trace some correspondence or resemblance between that which was depicted, and the life character or work of the ferson in whose memory the window was dedicated, n the beautiful window just unveiled, the main idea seemed to be, not the message of those to whom it was tent but the messengers, those servants of God who do His bidding in heaven, as we try to do it on earth. After some remarks on the nature of the service of the angels, the preacher went on to say that here we were taught the nobility of service. One true patent of distinction not being as in ancient times, the number of persons who might serve us, but the number of persons we could serve. He then went on to speak of the appropriateness of the memorial to Mr. Raikes, the guiding idea of whose life seemed to be to try to be of service to his fellow men. The service was throughout of a most impressive character, the musical portion reflecting much credit non the choir and the ohoirmaster and organist (Mr. J. P. Adams). The evening service which was well attended, also bore referenoe to the dedication ceremony, and among the hymns sung were some of those of which it was known the late Mr. Raikes was a devoted admirer. The pulpit was occupied by the Rev. E. M. Roderick (Vioar), who, preaching from Exodus xxxi., 1-5, said that the passage afforded a justification for art, especially art employed in the service of the Sanotuary. Bezaleel bad reoeived a direct call and inspiration from God for the building of the Tabernacle. God had made the world beautiful and He had endowed man with the capacity to enjoy its beauties. And man had endeavoured to embody his spiritual con- ceptions in visible forms of harmony and beauty. The Tabernacle in its structure and furniture was a holy microcosm, it contained a representation of everything existing in nature. In architecture, pillar and arch and floriated capital had their counterparts in nature. It was of the greatest im- portance that every faculty of their, human nature should be called into play by their worship. They should nnt despise the help of art the sounds that delighted the ear and the colours that fascinated the eye should be brought into the service of religion. Religion bad from the first been the nnrse of art, and art, whether it be music or architecture or painting, had found its inspiration in Christianity for its masterpieces. They should pay great attention to the externals' of worship—both in the building and the form of worship. Many of the Psalms were written expressly to be sung to an instrumental accompaniment, and in the building of the Tabernaele, Bezaleel was said to be filled with the Spirit of God and inspired for his work. They who worshipped in that beautiful House of God Sundays and week days, from year to year, could not but be filled with admiration for the lavish, care and taste, which had been bestowed upon the building. There it had stood upon the hill almost as it was to-day for four centuries, pointing the way to heaven in striking and lasting contrast to the transitory character of all arouud. It was hallowed to them by many a sacred association aud many a fond memory. Well might they be proud of their noble heritage and trust, and thank God, resolving that they would consider it their privilege no less than their duty, to hand it down to generations, yet unborn unimpaired and if possible with added beauty.
MB. SAMUBL SMITH, M.P., BROUGHT TO Boox.- It is not long since Mr. Joseph Arch was brought to book for charging parochial trustees with applying charity funds to Church expenses. When asked to name a single instance, he was unable to do so. Mr. Samuel Smith, M.P., in a speech delivered at uonnah's Quay in January, stated that "the parish charities of England had, praotioally speaking, belonged to the Church, and had been very largely used by the Church for the benefit of its adherents. He would not go so far as to say that they excluded Nonconformists from those obarities, but Nonconformists felt that they were very unjustly passed over in connection with them." Mr J. Edwards, a churohwarden in Flintshire, wrote to Mr. Smith, requesting him to give a single instance from that county. Mr. Smith replied immediately, saying he formed his opinion upon the debates in Parliament, and the evidence there adduced. Mr Edwards returned to the charge, showing that a statement in Parliament that Cerrigydruidion Charity was applied absolutely for the benefit of Church people was incorrect, 859 of the 1.120 recipients during the last ten years having been Dissenters. To this letter Mr Smith did not reply, but, on being pressed further, said he saw no further need of replying. Mr Smith, therefore, is content to allow his rash general statement to apply to all the parochial trustees in Wales, and declines to furnish even a solitary instance of mis- appropriation from the county of Flint. Nothing could be more shameful than these attacks made upon the clergy and churchwardens in general charges, for which no proof is given. Mr Edwards, and the clergyman who tackled Mr. Arch, deserve the thanks of Churchmen for boldly demanding proof. In no case ought speakers like Mr. Smith to pass unchallenged, and their uojuxt accusations left to work mischief in the popular miud. Church Times
VRIlHN 01' ^xeebino.—m sneering or aenance, the upper lip is lifted and retracted in such a manner that the canine tooth on one side of the face alone is shown, the face being upturned and half avertod from the person causing the offence. Darwin pertinently remarks that it is a surprising fact that man should possess this power to uncover the canine tooth, or exhibit any tendency to its use. To account for this civilized gesture he goes on to say: •« We may readily believe that our male semi-human progenitors uncovered their canine teeth when prepared for battle, as we still do when feeling ferocious, or when merely sneering at or defying someone, without any intention of making a real attack with our teeth. The Synthetic Philosophy of Expression,, by Moses True Brown, M.A. THERE are many lives of much pain, hardship and suffering, which having no stirring interest for any but those who lead them, are'disregarded by persons who do not want thought nor feeling, but who pamper their compassion and need light stimulants to rouse it. There are not a few among the disciples of charity who require in their vocation scarcely less excitement than the votaries of pleasure in theirs; and hence it is that diseased sympathy and compassion are every day expended on out-of-the-way-objects, when only too many demands upon the legitimate exercise of the same virtues in a healthy state are constantly within eight and hearing of the most unobservant person alive,

Gentlemen,- It gives me much pleasure to tell you of the great benefit I have derived from taking Gwilym Evans' Quinine Bitters. Eighteen months ago I was a great suflerer from Bronchitis, and had a most troublesome cough, from which I could get no rest night or day- I tried many remedies, and got medical treatment at the hospital, but nothing seemed to give me any relief. I was induced by my husband, who had heard a fellow- BRONCHITIS. workman Rpeak very highly of Gwilym Evans' BRONCHITIS. Quinine Bitters to try a bottle. It is only BBONCHITIS. right to say that it had a most wonderful effect on me almost immediately, and I felt that I had hit on the rightthing at last. The relief it gave me was most marvellous, and I feel quite another person. My husband, who suffers in the same way, says it does him more good than anything he has ever taken, and we are never without a bottle of it in the house.—Yours faithfully, SARAH PARKISSOX.

WBLlB Jumoia Cup FtifAL.-Wrookwardino Wood and Mold Red Stars met at Staosty Park, Wrexham, before 2,099 spectators, in the final of the Welsh Junior Cup. Wrookwardine started the game with a rush, and scored two goals within the first ten minutes, their half-baoks and forwards shooting hard and playing a good combined game. The Stars broke away on several occasions, but their attack lacked sting. At last, after some very determined work, D. Jones soored a good goal for Mold, the teams crossing over with the score unaltered. In the second half the Stars won by four goals to three. DKHBIOH v. HOLYWBLL. The decision of the Subcommittee of the N.W.C. League, with regard to the dispute between the above clubs, is to the effeet "that Denbigh be awarded two pointa. As already reported, the circumstances of the case were, that whilst playing at Denbigh the crowd broke on to the ground, one of the Holywell team being assaulted. The game was broken up, and the visitors walked off the field. Previous to the game the visitors had lodged a protest against the referee, on the gronnd that he was of Denbigh nomination. In the face of these faots, the decision of the Sub. Committee does not meet with general approval, and it is to be hoped that the Council will thoroughly sift the matter before finally adopting the report of th Committee.
