God bless the day nnto you both, Trat joins the twain in one; And mark you for the Upper Land When this below is gone And may He fill your house with grace, As year succeedeth year While all things enter but to bless, With nothing known to fear And as the little Angels come, To bring you happy days; God grant you pleasure in each one, With Him in all their ways Far be the distant cloud that spreads Its tokens of the tomb When silence reigns in the abode, All lights out in the home Let wisdom guide you in each word, Whatever ye might say; Peace dwelling in your every look, All anger pass away In you begin a godly race, Strong with a living faith; Rejoicing in your dying hour, To kiss the hand of death True sympathy possess your hearts, The rougher ones to smooth And the "well done" descend the skies, Your closing hour to soothe Now may the grace of Jesus Christ, Be with you evermore; Until ye pass to brighter joys, On the eternal shore TAYLOR -♦ —

This has led to some curiosity to know what candidates are likely to come before the electors. At present little informa- tion has leaked out.

There was" considerable diminution of rental during the year, amounting in all to about £ 170, but notwith- standing this, strict economy in the expenditure, had secured a profit on the year's working of JE278 Is. va., which amount with the undivided balance of 1894, would enable the Company to pay dividends at the rate of 14 per cent. for the year 1895.

COUNTY COURT: FMDAY.-Before His Honour Sir Horatio Lloyd, judge. Registrar-Mr By. Taylor. "NAILING" A SOLDIER'S PENSION. Application was made by Mr J. Beale Maraton (Mold), on behalf of Samuel James, oarpenter, and army pensioner, of Brentwood Buckley, for an administration order. He stated that applicant in an affidavit said he was a carpenter by trade, and an army pensioner. He received a pension of 2s 6d a dav. He received his discharge in 1893, after 21 years and 71 days' service. He was married and bad a family of eight children, from thirteen years of age to niae months. He was unable to pay his way, owing to sickness in the family, disappointment in trade, &o. He contributed regularly towards the maintenance of his parents at Kingston-on-Thames. He was willing to pay twenty shillings in the pound by such reasonable instalments as his Honour might direct. He had received the "good conduct" medal, and the certificate of the Royal Humane Society. His debts were filed at Y,40 9s. 6d.—Mr G. H. Simon, Mold, who appeared for several of tho | creditors, in his examination elicited from the applicant that the debts were contracted after he left the army. He had been at Mile Lane, Buckley, and a presentation was made to him on leaving. He received from X5 to £ 7. His deferred pay received after his discharge amounted to about JE56. His wife's mother died about twelve months ago. A little property came to his wife, but he was not aware of his children having any. He was willing to pay 10s. monthly. He earned about 20s a week, but work was slack at the oolliery. Mr Simon suggested that his Honour should make an order equivalent to one half of the debtor's pension.—His Honour said the administration order would be granted, and taking matters into consideration he thought a week's out of every month's pension flhould be appropriated to the payment of the debts. He did not think that would be unreasonable.— Order for administration made payment 20s. in the L, by monthly instalments of 17s. 6d.—The oustody of the order was made over to the court bailiff, Mr J. Philip Jones. A OONNAH's QUAY SHIPPING CASH,—THE CAPTAIN AND HIS MATE. This was an action brought by James Bennett, 4, Union-street, Penlan, Connah's Quay, late mate on the .41 Mary Elizabeth," against Thomas Garratt, Connah's Quay, master of that vessel, to recover £ S 0i. 8d balance of wages due. A counter-claim was made for £ 10 damages sustained by defendant by reason of plaintiff leaving the service without consent. Mr W. H. Churton, Chester, appeared for plaintiff, and Mr T. W. Hughes, defended. It appeared that on the 17th July last year, the plaintiff shipped as mate on the "Mary Elizabeth," of Connah's Quay, of which the defendant was master. Plaintiff signed certain articles, and was to receive f,4 a month wages. Plaintiff remained with the vessel until the 18th December. The vessel traded between Ireland and Queenborough on the Medway. The vessel put into Holyhead and the defendant left the vessel in charge of the plaintiff, and went home to Connah's Quay. Plaintif after being sometime in Holyhead harbour wrote a letter to the defendant, with whom he had had some words previously, stating that he wished to leave the vessel and asked defendant to get another man to take charge of the vessel. In reply the defendant wrote that he was surprised to note that he wanted to leave in a place like that (Holyhead) and at such a time. He thought he might stop until he got to his journey's end. He further said, if he wanted to leave the vessel, he must get a man to take his place. Defendant returned to the vessel, and plaintiff obtained a man to take his place, to whom the defendant objected and backed out of the arrange- ment. The defendant became abusive and told the plaintiff to leave the vessel, refusing te pay plaintiff off.-The plaintiff said he had 25 years' experience. Replying as to custom, plaintiff said it was usual to give 24 hours' notice to leave the ship after arrival at a safe-port." A month was served on the vessel before any notice was given. After the vessel ran into Holyhead, wind-bound, defendant went home to Conuah's Quay, where he stayed for a fortnight. He wrote to the defendant who replied as stated. He considered Holyhead was a "safe port. Defendant returned to the vessel in a few days following the letter, and after some words they went to the Custom House officer to whom they stated their case. The officer told them to "settle and separate. The officer did not tell him to go back to the ship. Plaintiff went to the ship, and the next day took his clothes away. The crew took him ashore in the boat.—W. Pierce gave evidence to the effect that the captain ordered him to put the plaintiff ashore.—For the defence it was contended that the custom was that no man leaves the vessel iu a wind bound port and only in a port of discharge. Defendant said he made every effort to get a man to take the plaintiff's place. He went to the vessel and told plaintiff he would have to complete the voyage. The wind was then favourable and he gave orders for the vessel to sail. Whilst he was in the cabin the plaintiff left the vessel. He called to the plaintiff to return, as he was going to sail. That was about three o'clock in the afternoon plaintiff did not return until eight that night. He refuscd to take the substitute provided by plaintiff, and shipped his own man. The next morning he went to the Customs Office. The officer did not tell him to "settle and separate," The officer told him he "had his remedy" with tho plaintiff. He could not obtain a suitable man for three days after the plaintiff left, and was delayed getting to Queen- borough, owing to unfavorable weather, until the 16th January. He was at home in the meantime.- His Honour: How did you know how the wind was at Holyhead, when yon were at Connah's Quay.— Defendant: I left instructions.—Mr Chnrton Yea, it was a very pleasant season of tho year, Christmas and New Year, and you had a jolly home party.- Defendant: I have the right to stay in Hulyhoad as long as I like.—Mr Churton Amusing yourself, to the owner's loss P—Defendant: No, I saw the owner every day, and he did not mite auy oomment. Other men were at home the same time.—Mr Churton Another man deserted about that time? —Defendant: Yes.—Mr Churton: Then, why is that not entered upon the log book tbe same as this. --Defendant: It was not interesting.—Mr Churton: If it is not interesting, it is yourduty ?-Defetidatit 1 his e ise of desertion did me harm.—Mr Churton There was some wages owing ?-Defendant: Yet;, and he forfeited wages, and clothes too.—His Honour: Did you turn him out naked ? (laughter). -Ur Churton Didn't you tell him to go to a warm place ?— Defendant: He would go there soon enough (laughter).—Michael J. Cullani, Customs Officer, Connah's Quay, gave evidenoe as to custom, and said a man after he had signed the articles should not leave the vessel at a ballast port or when wind bound and must give 24 hours' notice upon arrival at port of discharge.—Mr Churton submitted that if the plaintiff was at all at fault the only damage was the proportion of wages for the few days, from the writing of the lettor to when defendant obtained a man-five days, 17s.—His Honour said the custom as stated by the Customs' Offioer was obviously the correct one. The plaintiff left the ship improperly and the question was what did the plaintiff forfeit ? He considered he should deduct one month's wages as plaintiff broke the contract and left without leave of the master of the vessel.—Judgment for plaintiff L4 on the claim, and aho for plaintiff on the counter-claim. BHHEP DEALING AT MOLD. This was an action brought by Benjamin Bennett, butcher, Flint, against Edmund Price, farmer, Rhosesmor, for £11 6s. 10d., for breach of contract. Mr G. H. Simon appeared for plaintiff, and Mr G. H. Bradley for the defenoe. It appeared that on the 23rd October last. at Mold fair, the plaintiff bought 49 sheep at 21s. 6d. each from the defendant. He took ten sheep that day and agreed to fetch the others, the defendant to feed the sheep. He paid defendant L12. He took ten more on the 30th of Ootober. On the Wednesday following, November 6th, plaintiff saw Price and paid him another £10, and said that he would send for the sheep. He sent for sheep on the 13tb, 14tb, and loth of November, but defendant refused to let the sheep go. On the 20th November he received notice that the sheep would that day be sold. The sheep were sold at Mold, He claimed for the loss sustained by defendant's action in selling the sheep. —For the defence it was shown that the plaintiff bought the sheep, and agreed to take ten on day of sale and the remainder the week following.

V WE MUST HAVE THE TOOLS. Robinson Crusoe, you remember, made a big boat or canoe out of the trunk of a tree. It was a laborious and tedious job. And that wasn't the worst of it. When he got the boat done he couldn't launch it. It was too heavy for one man to handle. If he had only had an arrangement like the capstan of a ship he might have managed. He understood how to do it, but lacked the tools. How often we find ourselves at a dead stand for that same reason. Let me give you a fresh illustration tied up for the moment in the following letter, which must first be read before we can rightly come at the point. In the spring of 1884," says our correspondent, I got into a low weak way, not being able to imagine what had happened to me. My strength kept ebbing away till I bad scarcely the desire or ability to do anything. I felt as tired as if I had just arrived home from a long, hard journey, yet no tax more than usual of any kind had been laid upon me. My mind, too, was weary so that I turned from things that obliged me to think, plan, or consider. "Side by side, so to speak, with all this was the failure of my appetite. Of oourse I continued to eat, or make an effort to eat, but food no longer tempted me as it does a person in health. I picked and minoed over my meals, and the little I took neither tasted good nor did me any good after I bad eaten it. Instead of warming, comforting and stimulating me, as it used to do, it gave me distress at the stomach, pain at the chest, and a singular feeling of tightness around the waist, as though a belt were buckled too snug around me. "After a time the condition of my stomaoh seemed to grow worse. There was that sense of gnawing, so often mentioned by others, and occasionally a feeling of faintness and sinking, almost like the ground giving way under one's feet." [REMARK: An eminent London physician, in one of his books, describes this sinking feeling as one of the most appalling and frightful that it is possible to experience. It is not the body but the mind that suffers, I, the present writer, have had two attacks of it, and pray to have no more. It is like unto the overshadowing of the Death Angel's wing, with the mindfully conscious of the situation. The cause is urio acid poison in the blood, one of the products of prolonged indigestion.] When this sinking feeling came on, continues the letter, it weighed me down like a nightmare. Finally I got to be so weak I could only walk slowly and feebly. The doctor who prescribed for me said my complaint was dyspepsia, but his medicine bad no perceptible effect. I continued like this for eight years; not always the same, but now better and then worse. Yet in all that long time there was not a day when I could say I was well. No medicine or treatment seemed right for me, and I almost began to think I never should recover my former health. "In Maroh, 1892, Mother Seigel's Syrup was recommended to me as having done wonders in cases like mine, even when they were of long standing and everything else had failed. No harm to try it we thought, and got a bottle from Mr Grime, the chemist, in Bolton Road; and after taking it I felt great relief. My appetite quickly improved, and I could eat without pain. When I had taken two or three bottles more the bad symptoms had all gone, and I was as well as ever. My husband also took the medicine with the same good results. You may publish my letter and refer inquirers to me. (Signed) Mrs Elizabeth Wilson, 5, Northoote Street, Bolton Road, Darwen, Maroh 1st, 1895." The lesson in this interesting narrative is too plain for as to miss it. Our old friend Orusoe was not able to launoh his boat for the want of machinery. Similarly the doctor who attended Mrs Wilson was not able to cure her because he did not possess the right remedy. His opinion as to her complaint was entirely correct. She was suffering from chronic dyspepsia, precisely as he told her. But alas it is one thing to know what ought to be done and quite another to have the knowledge and means to do it. Between these two things (over this wide gap) stands Mother Seigel's Syrup, just as between the two sides of the Thames stands London Bridge.
BAGILLT. OPENING OF THE NEW ENGLISH CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH. On Sunday last, the first service was conducted in this new Church, by the pastor, the Rev R. D. Thomas, who preaohed to large congregations, and on Monday evening the Rev Dr. Bowman, M.A., of Liscard, preached a powerful sermon to a large gathering. Tuesday evening, in connection with the same place of worship, a Welsh service was conducted in the Tabernacle Chapel (kindly lent for the purpose), by the Revs Ellis Jones, Bangor, and Dr. Roberts, Wrexham, whose impressive discourses were listened to with marked attention. On Wednesday the opening oeremony was held in the new Chapel, which is a pretty and well constructed building, facing the Tabernaole Chapel. The structure which is of Ruabon pressed brioks with freestone faoings, is of oblong shape, rather broad, and has a poroh at the front and a schoolroom at the end. The interior is exceedingly oomfortable, and well arranged, being divided into two aisles, with long seats in the centre and both sides, and great care has been displayed in the arrangement to secure the comfort of the worshippers in the way of light, whilst from the pulpit and reading desk the preacher has a full and commanding view of the congregation. The wool work and wainscoating are all of pitchpine, and the old seating has been admirably readapted. At the entrance there are large folding doors, oponing into a porch from which two vestible doors lead one into each aisle. At the east end there is a raised platform upon which are arranged the choir stalls, the organ being at the back. The roof he", been beautifnlly worked in herring-bone fashion, with well selected beautifully grained pitchpine and is supported by three scroll principles of plain but becoming design. Light 's admitted into the building through eleven beautiful gothio windows, four being on each side and three above the porch, whilst the darkness of night is dispelled by six lar^e star-lights, of five burners eaoh. At the extreme end of the church behind the pulpit is a large schoolroom, divided from the main building by a wooden partition which is so arranged as to be able to be run up into a socket prepared for it in the wall, and a large and commodious addition being th-n made to the chapel should oocaewu demand it. This part of 'he handsome church building will be used as a vestry aud schoolroom. On the whole the building rr-fecta great credit upon the architect, Mr Godfrey Perry, Rhyl, and also upon the contractors, Messrs Si eon, Holywell. The service commenced at three o i iOak in the afternoon, Mr F. J. Rawlins, Rhyl, pr fiding and the following genilrmen took part —3,9V. D. Oliver, Holywell; Rev. Ezra Johns-on, Chister, Dr. Herber Evans, principal of Bala College, Bangor; Dr Pan Jones. Mostvn Rev E. Jones; Mr P Harding Robe t* Rev. W. Laooeley, F.R.G.S., Holywell Mr Huxley, Malpas and the Rev. E. Thomas Greenfield. The hymns were well rendered by an efficient choir under the leadership of Mr E Evans, and Miss Foulkes, Walwen, presided at the organ and took an active part in sustaining the heartiness of the musical part of the servioe. After the service an excellent tea was provided for the benefit af tho;e who had attended from a dis- tance, under the excellent management of Mra Parry, and Mrs W. Williams, New Brighton, assisted by the following ladies Mrs R. D. Thomas, Miss Roberts Miss Foulkes, Mrs Wilson, Mri Griffiths, Mrs Brenttiali, Mrs Parry, Miss Brtntnall, Miss Stephenson, Miss Wateon, &o. In the evening the Rev. Dr. Herber Evan* cooductei a servioe and preached a ttirrinz sermon to a crowded congregation at Tabernacle Chapel. After the ser- vioe votes of thanks were accorded the kind friends of the Tabernacle for the use of the building and the schoolroom. The ministers and members of the congregation of this beautiful place of worship are deserving of the greatest praise for the untiring energy and thoroughness they have shown in amassing the money to erect this chapel, and it is pleasing to note that their efforts in this direction have secured for them a grant of f25 and a loan of £100 free of interest, from the Chapel Building Society, to say nothing of a grant of JE50 kindly made by the North Wales Congregational Union. It ia not too much to say that the Rev R. D. Thomas has I by bis unwearied energies, succeeded in raising money for the erection of the Church in the face of many difficulties, and the congregation and the connexion owe him a debt of deep gratitude.
