PUBLIO REFERENCES. The following are some of the references that have been made to the late Mr Garner, by the public bodies with which he was connected;- At the annual meeting of the Holywell Urban District Council, at the Town Buildings, on Saturday morning, when all the members were present, the only vacant chair being that of the late Mr Garner.—Mr J H Hague proposed Mr Carman as provisional chairman, which was carried unanimously. The Chairman (Mr J Carman), referred to the lamented death of Mr Garner, and proposed that under the circumstances the Council ad- journ their meeting, so as to enable them to pay a last tribute of respect to the deceased gentle- man, by following his remains to the graveside. This was agreed to, and the meeting was adjourned until Tuesday morning, M.r T H Waterhouse said it was with profound grief that they heard of the death of Mr Joseph Garner, J.P. He was a gentleman respected and beloved by all with whom he came into contact. The poor had in him a friend and a confidant; he was kind, amiable, and good. In his home there was a vacant chair which never could, and never would, be filled, and that was not the only empty chair. The chair that Mr Garner filled in the council would in mind, spirit and heart, be vacant for many years to come. He was always affable and gentlemanly, and his kind ^nd pleasant face thev should long miss. He worthily and faithfully discharged all his duties in both & private and public capacity as a* Councillor of the H< ly well Urban District, and of the County; as a Governor of the Intermediate School; as a Guardian of the Poor; and also as a Justice of the Peace. L was with the deepest sorrow that ha moved that a vote of condolence be conveyed to his widow and the other members of th;, tamily. Dr. James Williams seconded the vote of condolence with profound sorrow. As a colleague, Mr Garnt r had been most considerate and especially to him, as in the capacity of vice-chairman, he had been a great assistanoe to him during his term of office. He had lost a valued friend, and he felt that the town of Holywell would also feel the blow, for in every respect and oousideration of the words he was a good man. He would add nothing only in the way of endorsement to the virtues of Mr Garner as expressed by Mr Waterhouse, but with sorrowful feelings he seoonded the vote of condolence.—The vote was carried. At the Holywell Board of Guardians on Saturday, the Chairman (Mr Wm. Thomas) in proposing a vote of condolence, said it would be quite agreeable with the feeling of the Board that they record their deep sympathy and condolence with Mrs Garner and family in their bereavement. He felt the loss of Mr Garner very keenly. He was one of the old boys "—one of his friends of the young days of half a century back. As a Guardian of the poor, the late Mr Garner was always kind to the poor and considerate of the interests of the ratepayers, and his conduct on the Board had been always agreeable and welcome to his colleagues.—Mr J Kerfoot Evans said it was with sincere sorrow that he seconded the vote of sympathy. He had for some years worked shoulder to shoulder with Mr Garner in their office as Guardians of the poor and he always found him a true friend to the poor. The proposition was carried with silent unanimity. At the meeting of the Parish Vestry on Easter Monday, at St Winefred's Hall, the Vicar pre- siding. Mr Thos Thomas remarked that they missed from their midst an old familiar figure —one who had for close upon half a century been one of the most regular attendants at the Vestry, and who from time to time had held various appointments under the Vestry He proposed that an entry be made on the Vestry Book recording their deep regret at the loss they had sustained in the Parish and the Church by the death of Mr Joseph Garner—Mr H A Cope seconded the proposition, which was carried with silent approval.

The disease was more malignant in form than in other plaoes. He traoed the disease to milk which had been conveyed to the houses by a girl at whose home there was diphtheria. There were no oases at the farm where the milk was obtained.

Mr Biroham reported in the Visitor's Book that he had inspected the Workhouse and should be glad to meet the Visiting Committee about several matters connected with temporary improvements in the house. MB. BIBCHAM COMPLIMENTS THE BOARD. Mr Biroham eaid he was sorry to miss from the ohair, the Rev. T. Z. Davies. He could not refrain from alluding to the los the Board had lately sustained by the death of their chairman, and also Mr Joseph Garner both active and influential mem- bers. During the past wintez he had been round the three dititricts of the relieving officers. He hitl been very much pleased with the intimate knowledge which the relieving officers had of their districts and the different cases in reoeipt of relief. The infor- mation they gave ha did not find to be in any way wrong upon cross-examination of the people who one and all reported to him that in no instance was there complaint of irregular payment. He wished to express his obligation to them for the trouble they took in showing him everything he desired to see. He visited the houses where the children were bearded out. He found Whitford most applicable to the system. He was struck with the fitness and suitability of Whitford and the homes selected, and he should consider Whitford was capable of further development in respect of the boarding out system. He was struck by the number of young and able- bodied men at Flint, loafing about expectiog work, that would probably never come to any great extent, and who, instead of supporting their mothers and keeping them off the pauper's roll, actually shared the small pittance they got. The men when times were gool were not regular workmen but simply supplied the surplus lajaour required. Referring to the Workhouse he considered some slight structural alterations were required and also a revision of the dietary table in use at the Workhouse. He suggested that the Board arrange a speoial meeting for the consideration of the proposals he made. The suggestion was agreed to. GRANT. The Clerk intimated that the amount of grant that would be received in respect of the Agricultaral Ratings Act would be L425 2s. Id. ATTENDANCES.

The Holywell eleven exhibited rare form B.-Edwards, at half-bank, being prominent. Final result:—Holywell, 6 goals Birkenhead St. John, 0 goals. HOLYWELL RESBBVE V. ST. MATHIAS (LIVBEPOOL). —Played at Holywell on Easter Monday morning, before a small gate. A poor game resulted in a win for Holywell Reserve by 4 goals to nil. The match Holy well Reserve v.

Final result: Holywell Reaerve, 2 goals; Liverpool Ivanhoe, 2 goals. RnYL v. FiaNT.-This Flintshire League match was played at Victoria- park, Rhyl, on Saturday, in dull weather and before a fair crowd, ending in a draw of one goal each. RHIL V.

The game was stoutly con- tested throughout, but Newtown had hard luck just before time. Williams scored for Wrexham, and eventually won by 2 goals to nil. WELSH JUNIOR CUP-FINAL TIE.—COPPENHALL V. RHOS EAOLK WANDEBEBS. —This tie was played at Buokley on Saturday, in wild weather, and on a ground which bad practically been turned into a swamp by the rain.

Half-time, Coppenhall, 2; Rhos, 1. Final, Ooppen- hall, 3 Rhos, 2. CHESTEB P.S.A. v. CONNAH'S QUAY. -These teams met at Eaton-park, Chester, on Monday, to replay the final of the Hospital Saturday Cup Competition. Tneir previous meeting resulted in a pointless draw. The P.S.A. playing uphill, scored early, and added a second before half-time. In the second half they had matters praotically their own way. The visitors seamed to have lost all heart in the matoh, and the P.S.A. played up in resistless style, scored four more goals, and won by six goah to nil. At the conclusion of the game the cup was presented to the victors by Mr Thomas, chairman of the Hospital Saturday Committee. I HOLYWBLL v. BABNTON ROVERS.—The annual Easter Monday football match provided by the Holy- well Football Club was favoured with fine weather on the whole, although a slight shower fell during its progress. The vitiitors this year were the well-known combination team (Barnton Rovers), and a fair crowd had assembled to see the event. Mr J. H. Hague refereed. The home captain won the toss and played with the wind in his favour, and at onoe the Barnton defenoe was given plenty to do a weakness in the home attack, however, ended in several fine chances being entirely lost. Barnton played up and sent behind but this only proved a flying visit, for the homesters once more assumed the aggressive, and J. Williams drew first blood with a fine shot. Con- tinuing to press Holywell had almost the whole of the game, and kept the visitor's defence busy, Half-time result, Holywell 1 goal, Barnton 0 goals. Resuming, Barnton .t.ecl off bui were brought up the atrudy defence of the homo team. W. O. Jonea became noticeable for some really brisky work, and finished up by soaring a fiue goal, This was but the begiaing of a number of suocesses, and settling down to work the Holywell team ran up their score to 3 goals, when Barutoa scored from a free kick, From the centre kick, the home forwards ran clean away and added another which was followed by a fifth just in time. Final result: Holywell, 5 goals Barnton, 1 goal.

A COMMON SENSEDIET. BY A MEDICAL MAN. You will hear sufferers exclaim, I feel out of sorts I am below par!" "I am losing weight!" Some rush to quack nostrums and become worse. Some are unwilling-or unable-to consult medical advisers, who would probably reoommend things whioh might or might not belp them. And after all, a little common sense must tell them that by following rational dietary rules they can maintain and restore that vigour which, by error in diet, in conjunction with their surroundings, they have lost, Good health—the greatest blessing mortals can enjoy, and never ready valued till lost-oan be preserved in the majority of mankind by attention to4 diet. A Food Beverage snoh as Dr. Tibbles' Vi-Cocoa with its unique powers of nutriment and exceptional vitalising properties, is a means whereby strength and nervous energy are gained as a rational outcome of inoreased vitality and the pleasing consequence of greater nourishment and euetenant force.

IMPORTANT TO LADIES. By nourishing the body, the cheeks become rosy and plump, whilst the strength and nervous energy thus gained are the natutal outcome of inoreased vitality. Health and happiness are to a great extent matters of digestion and nutriment. It is only by the proper assimilation of food, that the waste of tissue daily taking place can be stopped. It cannot be done with medioine. It oan, however, ba done with a perfect food beverage, such as Dr. Tibbie#' Vi-Cocoa, which possesses exceptional vitalising properties. It will save your digestion part of its work, and is far more nourishing and eustenant than tea or the ordinary cocoa, whilst it possesses a tonio and recuperative force possessed by neither. Dr, Tibbies Vi-Cocoa is pleasant and palatable— and embodying, as it does, the numerous principles contained in Malt, Hops, Kola, and Coeoa, it imparts nourishment and builds up strength.

NEURALGIC PAINS. 25, IIl'NDRIi-CAFAN ROAD, PENY-GRAIG, Dec. 26th, rSgo. DEAR SJR,-I feel very thankful that such a precious remedy as your Quinine Bitters has been discovered. Three years ago my little boy, who is now almost nine years of age, suffered greatly with his teeth, and often cried and screamed suddenly by night and day from the acute pain he suffered in the nerves. We tried various prescriptions, but all in vain, and even the doctor could give him no lasting relief. At last, one of our neighbours told us that the cause of his suffer- ing so acutely was Weakness, and advised us to try Gwilym Evans' Bitters to strengthen him. We did so, and before he had com- pleted the second bottle a great change for the better was evident, and by continuing its use he rapidly improved, and soon got rid of the excruciating pain which caused him such great suffering. I heartily recommend parenti to try it in cases of ailments of their childrelk especially in cases of Weakness. YOM dncu*l WK D, LXWA
