WHITFORD. ANNUAL PARISH MEETING. The annual Parish Meeting of the Parish of Whitford was held in the National Schools, 01 Thursday last. Thore was a largo attendance of parishioners. The Rev E. Pan. Jones, chair- man of the Parish Council, proceeded to carry out the duties of the chair, when the Rev. T. Z Davies drew the attention of the meeting to the fact that the chairman of the parish meeting was Mr Wm. Roberts. The Rev E. Pan. Jones said he doubted the ruling. The Rev. T. Z. Davies replied that the 7Sth Sec. of the Act said The first, parish councillors and the first chairman of the parish meeting shall retire on the second ordinary day of coming into office." From that section he argued that Mr William Roberts having been elected chairman of the parish meeting on tho firet occasion, continued in office until the second ordinary day of coming into officc, that would be the 15th of April. Mr W. Roberts said if there was any doubt about it, he wished to waive any right that he had to the chair. Rv. Hugh Roberts: I propose that Mr W. Roberts take the chair. Rev. E. Pan. Jones: Please do not make me a bone of contention (laughter). Mr Barratt: It is not a personal matter. Rev. Hugh Roberts: I confirm the Vicar's views on the point. It was an anomaly, owing to the change-that had taken placo. The natural construction was that the Chairman of the Parish Council would occupy the chair at the parish meeting. Mr John Edwards seconded the proposition, which was carried, and Mr Roberts after some persuasion took the chair. Rev. E. Pan Jones said he begged to apologias for taking the chair in the first instance. The Chairman said no apology was due nor necessary. Rev. E. Pan. Jones: The misunderstanding arose through the alteration of dates, and the clerk will bear me out that I never intended to monopolise in any way. The Chairman: I never took it into consider- tion that I should remain chairman of the parish meeting. The minutes of the last parish meeting were read. Rev. E. Pan. Jones said he was chairman of the parish meeting in March last year. He should like to known how it happened that he was chairman on that occasion and not on the present occasion. Rev H. Roberts: You were Chairman by virtue of your office as Chairman of the Parish Council, but we have given in. The Chairman I object to that remark it is unfair. In reply to a further question the Chairman said he was legally Chairman of the previous meeting, and he knew it at the time, but he did not wish to offer his opinion as against the Chairman of the Parish Council. Mr Bryan moved that the minutes be passed as a correct record of the proceedings, and signed by the present Chairman. The Rev T. Z. Davies seconded the proposition, which was carried.
THE CnARITY ACCOUNTS. The Rev T. Z. Davies, vicar of Whitford, produced the accounts of charities under his control. In the Sarah Parry aud Lewis Gold charity, 120, distributed quarterly in sums of ös. the names of the recipients were read. Mr John Edwards asked that the Vicar give the religious creeds of the recipients. The Vicar: I cannot; for I do not know. Mr Edwards So far as you can ? The Vicar The charity belongs to the whole pariah, and I do not consider the religious views of those who receive the charity. I give the chaiity to those whom I consider most deserving and suitable. Mr Edwards: I don't refer to it as tending to show any partisanship in the granting of the charity. I only want to have some idea of the denominations of the recipients. The names were read, and the religious creed of each was stated by the Vicar, or some one who knew the parties. The list seemed to fairly distributed, and they were divided into three classes—Church. Chapel and stay-at-homes." The other charity accounts were read. The Rev Hugh Roberts said it was no use the Vicar telling them that he would do this or that. Whatever he had done in the past was gone. The Trustees' Act was in force, and the penalties attached to trusteeship were con- siderable. He did not refer to the matter in order to encroach upon any one's rights. The Vicar replied that he as Vicar of Whitford should continue to do, in regard to the charities. in the future the same as he had done in the past. He cared nothing for the Trustees' Ac:. Let it come upon him as it would he would meet it. If anyone could say he had in any way acted wrongly with the charities, he would stand the consequences. Rev H. Roberts I do not say you have done anything wrong. Mr J. Edwards You have invited question j. You say you will do certain things in spite of the Trustees' Act and the Local Government Act, and in spite of the Parish Council, The Vicar: 1 care nothing for the Parish Council. It has nothing to do with it. Mr John Edwards: Dr Pan Jones was con- sulted by the Trustee of tha Downing Charities. I should like to know how many times the Rev Hugh Roberts, as trustee appointed by the Parish Council, has been consulted by Mr Davies in regard to the charities. The Vicar: There has been no vacancy, that I should consult him. The Rev Hugh Roberts wrote to me about a boy, as recipient for the apprenticing allowance. I, at the timo, considered the family too well off to receive the charity, but upon further inquiry I agreed that the boy was deserving, and the X4 was granted to him, Mr Edwards How many times has he beein consulted in connection with the other charities ? Mr Barratt: I would not reply to such insulting questions. Mr Edwards: It is a question, and he is trustee. Rev Pan Jones When I was appointed co- trustee with Lord Denbigh's trustee of the Downing charities, the Rev Hugh Roberts was appointed co-trustee with the Vicar of Whitford. At the time I did not know my responsibilities, but Mr Feilding called at my house and said he understood that I was a trustee appointed by the parish, and he should be pleased to have my opinion. He asked me to draw out a list of the recipients of the charity. He drew out a list. Mr Bakewell drew another, and I drew out a list. We amalgamated the three lists and came to perfect unanimity on the question. My impression was that Mr Hugh Roberts would have been consulted in some way by the Vicar, as I was consulted by Mr Feilding. TheVicir: The charity Mr Feilding referred Dr Pan Jones to was the" suit charity and the list is varied every year. The list I have will continue as long as the parties live. Theie has been no vacancy during the year, or I should have consulted Mr Hugh Roberts. Rev Pan Jones: As co-trustee, why not ha\ e consulted him in regard to the list. Th, Vicar Mr Roberts wrote me about a boy apprQiticed I thought it not a fair case and rffust'd, hut upon further inquiry I found there was a largt) family, and it was a deserving t, irig oase. Rev Pan Jones 1) *h<> term of the charity fit U* th »t the aunual dh nld be for life ? Rev ti. Roberta: Our h no in of the Pauab Council understands the question. It is not a question of disputing or doubting Mr Davies. It is a question of trusteeship. When a man i becomos a trustee, he becomes responsible. He was made responsible as a trustee, but he knew nothing. Mr J. Edwards: The question is are you responsible ? Rev H. Roberts: I am responsible, but Mr Davies does not want me to share the responei- bilitv. But, whether he wants me or not, the law eavs I must share the responsibility or shake it entirely from my person. It is a dangerous expression to say I will do this and that. I don't care for Parish Council, or the Trustees' Act." The Vicar: The money was left by David Pennant, junior, to the Vicars of Whitford for ever, to be distributed by them according to the discretion of the owner of Downing, being a descendant of Thomas Pennant, failing that Mr Philips, Rhual, That has been followed out, and Mrs Philips told me to distribute the eharity as I thought best, and as I have always done. As long as I have it, they shall have the charity for their lives. Rev E. Pan Jones: You make these people recipients for life simply by your own wish. There is no rulo or direction only your own choice ? The Vicar: Yes, my own choice. Rev E. Pan Jones: What Mr Roberts objects to, is that you should not have consulted him. The Vicar: But there was no vacancy. Rev H. Roberts My point is the law. The Vicar And my point is the law, and as sole trustee. Mr Bryan Is Mr Davies ready to co-operate with the co -trustee according to the Act ? The Vicir I am. Mr Bakewell said he regretted the Downing accounts, although prepared and audited, but by some unfortunate arrangoment they had not been forwarded in time. He did not think anyone would insinuate any partiality in the distribution of the charity. It was agreed that the Downing charity accounts be submitted to the next Parish Council meeting. Rev H. Roberts I wish it to be entered upon the minutes of the meeting—that inasmuch as Mr Davies, as trustee of certain charities in the parish of Whitford, has delivered over £ 15 odd, and another sum to other clergy, and inasmuch as I am nominee or appointed trustee of the Parish Council, that Mr Davies haa not even trusted me or consulted me in the matter. 1 wish to enter this on the minutes of the parish meeting of Whitford. Rev E. Pan Jones: I have never heard Mr Davies blamed as being one-sided in the di3tribution of the charaties. At the same time I feel it an injustice that all this distribution should go through the hands of one party. The speaker then went on to say, that it was a common remark among people Because we don't go to Church, we don't get the Si and that they had to play the Churchman" to get the £1. He said it was a proselitizing vein running through the parish, and had been for years. He was as honest, and could give the charity to tho poor quite as well as the Rev Griffith Jones, Mostyn. Why not give him (the speaker) a pound or two to distribute among the poor. The Chairman I am sorry I happen to be in the chair, or I should answer some of Dr Pan Jones' remarks, which I think are very uncalled for. The accounts were passed as presented by the Vicar.
TIIE HEARSE ACCOUNT. The hearse accounts were produced as audited by Mr Japheth Jones, and passed.
ELECTORAL CONVENIENCES. Mr Bakewell proposed that steps be taken to divide the parish into two electoral divisions for polling purposes in Parish Council elections. He considered it was a great hardship for the electors of Mostyn to come up to Whitford to poll.—Mr J. Edwards, in seconding, suggested that the parish be divided into wards ("No, no.")—The Chairman thought if the Parish Council took the matter up, and assisted by the resolution of the parish meeting, it would have some force in presenting a requisition to the County Council.—The proposition was carried unanimously. A vote of thanks to the Chairman terminated the proceedings. —

CLAIM FOR COMPENSATION. A letter was read from Mr J. Jennings, of the Cross Keys Hotel, claiming compensation for damage caused to the hotel buildings by taking off the slate.* at the gable of the house in the coarse of the rcofing of the new Town Buildings. Mr Jennings stated that two pictures had been spoiled, and the paper of the room and the one corner was not yet dry. He aeked that a competent man be appointed by the Council to assess the amount of damage. He had spoken repeatedly to the contractor but he had taken no notice. After some discussion i was decided to acknowledge the reoeipt of the letter and to write a strong letter to the contractor calling hi" attention to the matter.

Total, £ 77 Us 8d.—Mr Cope: It is said I Time is money,' and this is a praotical proof of it.—The Chairman If all this work has been done by other people I fail to see what Mr Joyoe has done.—Mr Bryan What were the men doing at 10s a day ?- Mr Carman Smoking cigarettes, I believe (laughter) -Dr J, O. Jones It was a great mistake to take the work oat of Holywell.-It was decided that the bills be sent to the architect with the request that be should meet the Finance Committee at the next ordinary meeting to consider the charges. TUB HEATING APPARATUS. I was stated that the heating apparatns in the Town Buildings would be oompleted that day, and it was necessary that a competent person be appointed to look after the apparatus for a time to see that it worked properly.—The foreman engaged in laying down the apparatus was called before the Council, and in reply to questions said it was necessary that ii competent person be appointed, otherwise the boiler might "shift and damage the building.— jtvwas decided that Mr Fred Newall, plumber, be appointed at £ 1 a week.

JõNLY A LITTLE AT A TIME. There are sound objections to one's knowing too much about his own body. I am going to tell you what they are nol to-day, but soon. To make sure of them you will have to watch these articles sharpely in the newspapers. Yet we should know a little and a fraction of that little I will serve up now. Please favour me with your attention. Right across the middle of the body is a large, thin, flat muscle, stretched like a canvas awning— the diaphragm. By it you are divided into two large storeys or compartments. The upper one contains the heart and lungs, the lower one contains (chiefly) the stomach, the intestines, and the liver. The most painful (internal) diseases oocur downstairs. the least painful upstairs. The entire right side of the lower compartment, from the top down to the short ribs, is filled by tho liver, which is suspended to a mere point of thtj diaphragm and shakes -about with every movement you make. Now, from the [location of the liver we have a word used for ages to express one of the most unhappy conditions a human being can fall into the word hypochondria (often abbreviated to hpo") the word meaning under the cartilages. "For seven years," writes a correspondent, "I suffered from complaint of the liver. I was very bilious, my skin was sallow and dry, and the whites of my eyes yellow. I had much pain and weight at my right side, and was constantly depressed and melancholy. It seemed to be out of my power to take a hopeful or cheerful view of anything. The effect of this complaint on the mind was one of the aspects of it hardest to bear. I bad lost my natural appetite, and ate to support life; but there was no more any genuine relish for food or drink. The bad taste in my mouth made all that I took taste bad. Sometimes I would be taken sick and throw up all I bad eaten and after a meal, no matter how slender and simple, I was troubled with fulness and pain at the ohest! I used many kinds of medicines and while some of them may have relieved me for the moment, none conferred any lasting benefit, and I was soon as bad as ever. In March, 1892, I read in a small book of what Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup had done in case t similar to mine, and was especially interested in tho account given in the book of the nature and dutie" of the liver, and its disorders. I got a bottle of tho Syrup from Boots' Drugs Stores, and after taking it a few days felt quite like a new man. It seemed to correct my stomaoh and liver and clear my system of all bile and it left me in capital health. Since that time I have kept Mother Seigel's Syrup in the. house as a family medicine and have commended it to all my friends as the best known cure for ailments like the one from which I suffered so miserably and so long. You can use this statement as you like. (Signed) John Gent, 59, Coventry Road, Bulwell. Nottingham, Morch 21st, 1895. "In the spring of 1891," writesanother, "Ifounti myself in bad health. I had no appetite, and the little I did eat did me no good, gave me no etrangtb. I had great pain and weight at the ohest and right side, and my skin turned shallow and dry. My kidneys also acted badly, and from time to time I had attacks of gravel; and cold, clammy, weakening sweats broke out all over me. Being only seventeen years old when the trouble began I was greatly alarmed and anxious. No doctor was able to help me, and I continued thus for over three years. In Juno, 1891. I began to use Mother Seigel's Syrup and soon felt better, lighter, and more cheerful. And by taking it a few weeks longer I recovered my health and strength. Since then, when I have any stomach, liver, or kidney symptom I resort to Mother Seigel's Syrup and it never fails to set me right. You can publish this letter. (Signed) C. Hanson, 6, New Inn Lane, Gloucester, May 31st:, 189-5." The stomaoh, the liver, and the kidneys are all connected parts of the food and digestive system. When disordered (usually through torpidity of the stomach) they cripple the body and throw a gloom as of night over the mind. On the earliest signs of ^anything wrong with them use Mother Seigel's S^RUP AT once.
SINGULAR COLLISIONS AT SnA.-Il A curious thing," writes a correspondent, "occurred on the last home- ward voyage from Australia of the P. and O. royal mail steamer Himalaya, when the ship, while steam- ing up the Red Sea, ran into and killed an enormous shark. The sea was dead calm at the time, and the brute must have been basking in the sun upon the surface, as they often do, when the ship struck it. Though under easy steam, she was then running quite 19 land miles an hour, and anyone acquainted with the huge proportions of a great ocean liner wiil under- stand the force and impetus with which the sharp stem must have been driven into its body. It was not quite cut in two, however, and was carried some distance before the engines were stopped and reversed to enable the ship to get clear, when it turned over and sank, apparently dead; but some time after being struck it was alive, and lashing out furiously with its tail. I am not sure to what size these monsters actually grow, but this one must have measured at least 25ft. in length, and its head must have been, at the broadest part, six feet at least. It is also interesting to speculate how, upon the theory that a fish never sleeps, the one allowed itself to be run into- especially as these incidents seem by no means rare." Another correspondent writes: On September 2, 1893,1 was on board the fine steamship Hirondelle, proceeding from Bordeaux to London, and about ten o'clock in the morning, when we were nearing the mouth of the English Channel, and not far from Ushant, a huge whale, apparently wounded, charged the ship, striking her on the bows, and causing a shock from stem to stern. It then divedTunderneath the steamer, and was not seen again. The engines were at ouce stopped, as it was feared the animal might smash the screw or the rudder, but fortunately the vessel sustained no injury, and the whale, which the captain reckoned to be about 60ft in length, was probably stunned or killed by the force of th* blow.

PRESTATYN. j ST. JOHN AMBULANCE: CLASS.-As a wind up to the successful session of the St. John Ambulanoe Class, Prestatyn, an enjoyable dinner was held at Jones' Refreshment Rooms, Preetatya, on Thursday evening. Dr Henry Griffiths, the popular instructor of the class, occupied the presidential chair, the vice chair being filled by Mr James. There was a large attendance of members and friends. The h-n. seorfctary of the class was presented with a handsome Gladstone travelling bag. Tiiii PBOPOSED URBAN DISTRICT COUNCIL.—In view of a probable election for this Council, at an early date, the liberals held a meeting last week at the Liberal room, and selected the names of nine persons as candidates. Amongst these are Dr. N. H. Griffith, Messrs Robert Davies, John Hughes, James Dowell, Thomas Hughes (Gronant House), John Jones (Sefton), and Lewis (Garfield House). NEW NATIONAL SCHOOLS.—We understand that a large sum of money haa already been collected by the Vicar for building new schools, and that it is likely tenders will be invited in the course of a week or two. and therefore, that an early oommenoement may be expected, of buildings which we are assured will be an ornament to our little town, and provide sufficient accommodation for the whole of the children resident in the parish, thereby saving the necessity of a School Board with the usual heavy rate.
NORTHOP. COMPLAINT AGAINST A PARISH COUNCIL.—At the annual parish meeting of the parish of Northop (Mr John Watkinson presiding), Mr E. Webster, Gwernymarl, a defeated oandidate for the parish council, complained of the action of the parish council in trying to get the Holywell District Council to take over a road in Caerfallwoh. He said there were only four or five houses along it, and it would naturally benefit the owner of the adjoining property. The Chairman said the parish counoil had done its duty. It was brought forward by Mr Peter Williams, who was a parish councillor, and if he had done wrong or misrepresented the state of things, it was for the eleotors to haul him over the coals. What is the council to do when your representative says it is for the public interest ? Mr Webster But, as chairman, I would have thought that you would have asked if the people were in favour of having the road taken over by the district council. Several gentlemen from the neighbourhood then testified to the public benefits to be had if the road were taken over by the Holywell Counoil. The Chairman assured the meeting that in future, if he was again elected obairman of the parish council, he would have matters thoroughly thrashed out before any steps were taken in order to prevent anything like this happening again.
+ AMBASSADORIAL PMWLCOBS AND CIUSTOMS.-The foreign ambassadors accredited to the Court of St. James are, as in fact the law looks upon them, little kings, being privileged beyond any subject in the reahu. The law of nations has decided that the am- bassador, like the Boyal Sovereign, is above the law, a statement which implies that he may do just what he ittes. It is certain that he may commit murder and not -be liable to arrest by the myrmidons of New Scotland Yard; he may be guilty of robbery with violence, and no judge can threaten him with im- prisonment or the cathe may forge, rob banks, and even seriously assault the Prime Minister, and yet go quietly home to dinner without the least fear of being served with a police-court summons on the following morning. He can do more than this-he may actually endeavour to dethrone the Queen, as did Mendoza, the Spanish ambassador, in Elizabeth's reign, or plot to take her life, as did L'Aubespine, the French ambassador, in 1584, and yet not suffer the penalties of the law; for though the arm of the law can take hold of most wrong- doers the ambassador is an exception. It may be asked what can be done to an ambassador who, for instance, commits murder or treason? Has the State no remedy ? All that the State can do in such cases is to oppose force to force, expel the offending minister from the country, and make a representa- tion to the ambassador's sovereign, requesting him to punish him for his behaviour. In the event of the sovereign ignoring the request, this would probably be a cause of war between the two nations. As we have seen that an ambassador may with impunity commit all these criminal acts, it is not surprising that the civil injuries which one suffers at his hands are not redressible in the English courts of law. The baker, butcher or fishmonger, in fact, any tradesman who supplies goods on credit to an ambassador or members of his suite, does so at his own risk. You cannot county-court an attacM or sue an ambassador; in fact, if you attempted even to serve a summons, you would eventually appear before the Lord Chancellor and two judges, who would impose upon you certain penalties, and corporal punishment if need be, for thus violating the law of nations. This privilege, according to most authorities, even extends to the ambassador's domestic servants, pro- vided their names be registered with the Secretary of State. But the ambassador's privileges do not stop here. Neither the rate collector nor the tax collector calls upon him, for he pays no taxes, and though it is true that he cannot send his letters without first affix- ing postage stamps in the ordinary way, yet so far as sending things to his own country goes, he is privi- leged in the following manner: There is in all embassies what is known as the valise, a big bag, as the name signifies. In this he may put whatsoever he will, dutiable articles included. This bag is sealed at the embassy, delivered to the postal authorities and forwarded to its destination without being opened. In the same way he may receive from his country the valise, no matter what it may contain, and it will be delivered to him un opened. House- hold supplies, too, such as wine, game, etc., for the use of .the household, he may likewise receive from abroad duty free, provided he first obtain from the Foreign Office a ^special permit which is never re- fused. Not only is the person of the ambassador sacred, but his carriage and hotel, or place of resi- dence, are also looked upon as inviolable. To force one's way into an ambassador's house is a most heinous offence. Neither officers of justice nor revenue officers can enter. In early times to such a length was this privilege carried that if a man com- mitted a crime, and gained admittance to some foreign embassy it was thought that he could not be taken. However, it has now been definitely decided that there is no right of asylum in embassies, and if an ambassador harbours a criminal, police officers may take him into custody, without breaking the law of nations.- CaweICs Saturday Journal. WnAT IS A SERVANT'S D E:PUTY ?-" YOS, I must admit that I do very well," said a man, describing himself as a professional doorstep cleaner, to the writer. You see, I have a regular round of houses, and from the domestics of each I draw a small sum every week for cleaning the steps, and polishing up the brasawork outside the house. Of course only the servants of rich people can afford to pay me to do work which they consider to be beneath them, and I have to go very early to avoid all risk of the practice being discovered. Some of my clients give curious reasons for employing me. One servant flatly confessed that scrubbing steps spoilt her hands, of which she was rather proud. Another was in love with a draper's assistant and, having told him that she was lady's maid, was afraid that she might be seen doing the steps and her deception discovered. Very often my being employed at one house leads to my getting customers at both the houses adjoining, merely out of jealousy. How did I come to start? Well, I was passing along a rather aristocratic West-end street early one morn- ing, and chanced to get into conversation with a girl who was cleaning the steps in front of a large house. She evidently disliked the task, for she remarked that she would pay anyone a shilling a week to do them for her. I was out of work then, and imme- diately offered. It was arranged that I should do the steps three times a week for a shilling, and she promised to recommend me to other girls whom she thought would be glad to employ me. She did so and gradually the business increased until I had to engage assistants, of whom I now employ two. What became of my first client ? She is a partner now>-you see, I married her."—CasselFs Saturday Jovfno.l for December.
THROAT IRRITATION AXD COUGH.—Soreness and dryness, tickling- and irritation, inducing cough and affecting the voice. For these symptoms use Epps's Glycerine Jujubes, In contact with the glands at the moment they are excited by the act of sucking, the Glycerine in these agreeable confections becomes actively healing.

Gordon Holmes, Senior Physician to the Municipal Throat aua har Infirmary, writes: "After an extended trial, i have found your Glycerine Jujubes of considerable benefit in almost all forms of throat disease."
OAERWYS. CAERWYS FAIB.-The fair was held on Tuesday, there was a good attendance but prices ruled exceedingly low. SESSIONS.—At these sessions on Tuesday, before Colonel Mesham, Messrs Wm. Williams and Wm. Thomas, Mr Clougb, of Denoigh, and Mr W. £ • Taplen, Halkyn, were summoned by It W. Jones, sanitary inspector of the Holywell Rural Council, for negleoting to carry out certain sanitary work on their properties, The oases were adjourned for two months, on the understanding that in the meantime the work would be done. Special sessions for poor and highway purposes were fixed. SWATOHKD irrom DICA.Tll.-At an early hour on Tuesday morning an old mau, between 70 and 80 years of age, was found in one of the rural roadi near Caerwys in a state of partial collapse, suffering from exposure and the intense cold. He was taken to Caerwys Police Station, where he was carefully nursed by the wife of Police-Constable Jones, until he recovered sufficiently to be removed to Holywell Workhouse.

By this remarkable performance the home team tenant an unassailable position in the league. Their next two league matches are against Flint (home and away). e The only other unplayed league fixture is between Rhyl and Llandudno, at Llandudno. Owing to the bad feeling oreated by the Flint spectators, I understand, that Holywell have cancelled their friendly matoh with the Filnt team, which it will be remembered was to have been played on Good Friday. The final tie in the Welsh cup competition, between Wrexham and Bangor, will be played on Easter Monday at Llandudno. Neither team has yet been beaten in a friendly or league fixture, and both teams have a grand record for the season, so a good game is a foregone conclusion, # That Bangor may win is the wish of all the coasters, and if ever a team deserved to do so, it is undoubtedly Bangor. From the commencement of the competition they have played with a distinctive thoroughness, and consistency, as to merit the confidence and support they now are so heartily accorded. e The liolywell Committee have secured two very good fixtures for Easter Holidays. On Saturday the Westminster Rovers will oppose them with a strong team, at Holywell, and on Easter Monday Whiston (Liverpool and Wirral League) will visit Holywell. The Whiston team will arrive in the town from Saltney, on the Saturday previous. Chirk defeated Flint, in the semi-final tie of the Denbighshire and Flintshire charity cup, by 3 goals to 1 goal, last Saturday.
REPORTS OF MATCHES. HOLTWBLL V. BUCMBT TOWN.—On Saturday the Holywell team were considerably disappointed by the Buckley Reserve putting in an appeasanoe in place of the firdt team, the consequence being that the homesters won a one-sided game by 8 goals, to I goal. WBEXHAM v BBTMBO.—This League match was decided on Wrexham Raoecourse, on Saturday, in stormy weather. As both teams are running olose for the ohampionship of the League the home team turned out a very strong eleven. The wind spoilt good football, despite the fact that Wrexham were playing against the gale in the first half. They commenced to attack after a few minutes' play, and Harrison, the Wrexham oentre, beat the visitors' custodian. The home players showed better foot- ball than their opponents, and Harrison popped on the second goal for them with a good shot. The home players continued to have the best of the ex. ohanges, but they failed to add to their total, and at half-time the score stood:—Wrexham, 2 goals; Brymbo. nil. Final-Wrexham 3 Brymbo, nil. J
TRUSSES (RUPTURE). The Link Shell Truss is the greatest invention of modern times, Dr. Phelan, the eminent physician, writing to the 'Lancet" says:—"It is a truss which I always advise patients to use. It will in very many oases be found an effectual cure." "Lancet" says, on Aug. 4th 1894:—"It is an efficient truss for a cure," British iMedical Journal," on June 30th,1894, says -"It is the most comfortable and secure truss." Medical Times and Hospital Gazette says—" It p a sure protection against fuither prolapse, and cures." "Edinburgh Medical Journal says—"It suits exceedingly well for a radical cure." English Sports" says- itis the only truss that can be worn by athletes competing in races when suffering from rupture." Lord Kinnard and Dr. Turner contribute. Worn by the late Sir Andrew Clarke, M.D. Awarded 19 Gold Medals. Worn by 693 medical men. Particulars, one stamp, from the Link Shell Truss Company, 171, Wardour Street, Lond ,W
