NOT A MOB BUT AN ARMY. A Mob of strong men wouldn't make an army, would they t To be sure not, we all say. An army is a great number of men trained and disciplined to aot together under orders and for one purpose. Similarly, a promiscuous crowd of brioklaycrs, oarpenters, &o., would not be able to build a house. No, not even if every one of them were skilled in his own trade. Suoh a helter-skelter sort of business wouldn't do. There must be organisation and direction. At the head of the army a oommauder at the head of the workmen, a master-builder. So with the human body. It is not a collection of organs; it is a single maohine all the parts of which are vitally connected and work together to ohe end. The heart, lungs, stomach, liver, bowels, kidneys, musoles, skin, &o., must have one another's aid to remove waste and to avoid dangers. Other- wise they would be a mere mob. On this basia we may talk about the case of Mr Edward Hepher. Nearly four years ago (dating from this writing) his health fell away. What ailed him he didn't know; he simply knew how he felt, and that was badly enough. This was in January, 1890. Yet there were oertain things that he remembers, these among them He lost his appetite and yet had a craving for food. This sounds like a oontradiotion, but it isn't. When a man ia hungry his whole body is hungry, yet it doesn't necessarily follow that the stomach will aooept food when you offer it. In health it will, but in some oomplaints it will not. In Mr Hepher's case it would not. I could not touch food when it was plaoed before me," he says. By this he doesn't mean that be ate nothing at all; only that the eight repelled him. After meals (very light ones at that) he had intense v pain at the ohest and sides. That was nervous action. The stomach was inflamed and sensitive, and the extra stimulus of the food irritated it, just as a draught of mustard and warm water would upset a healthy one. The constant gnawing pain, of which he al-o speaks, was due to the same state of things. Hs gees on to add (we quote from his letter of June 15th, 1893) as follows: to I lost a deal of sleep, and night after night used to tosa about the bed all night long. After a while I got so dreadfully nervous that I couldn't bear the least noise; I was startled if anybody merely knocked at the door. Presently I was so weak I could hardly get about, and the least exertion made the sweat fairly ran off me. I saw a doctor who gave me medicine, but I got no better. 44 In February, 1890, it was that I obtained a letter of recommendation from Mr T. Carter, of Swavesey, and went to the Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge, where I was under treatment as an indoor and outdoor patient for a year and seven months but no real benefit came of it. The doctors said I was suffering from a weak heart and general debility. I took pailsful of medicine, growing weaker all the time. In the autumn of last year I took to stopping in the house and was not ølJù to Uav* it for twenty- two weeks. I had no pleasure in living, and often wished myself dead. In March of this year I first read of Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup. I got a bottle and began taking it, and in a few days felt relief. In three weeks sleep returned and my nights were restful. My appetite improved, my food agreed with me, and I gained strength. Soon I was bettor than I had been for years. Not long after I was well, and have since kept in the best of health. You may publish these faota and I will answer inquiries. (Signed) Edward Hepher, Box worth End, Swavesey, near Cambridge." How clearly this shows the wonderful unity of the human body. The stomach was first attacked -our old and bitter enemy it was, indigeation and dyspepsia. General debility resulted from the want of nourishment. The nerves weakened like violin strings when the screws are turned baokwards. All the other organs were strained from lack of food and from overwork. The heart beat feebly and the oxygen inhaled by the lungs found no food to aot upon so as to make heat. And eo the trouble inoreased and became oomplioated-all from one source, the stomaoh. Treatment addressed to the symptoms failed, of course; but when Seigel's Syrup set the digestion to rights, health came back as vegetation does under the spring sunshine.

THE DIAMOND JUBILEE. SPLENDID OUTBURST OF LOYALTY. In truly "Queen's weather" the Diamond Jubilee of the reign of Victoria, Queen and Empress, was celebrated on Tuesday in every city, town, and Tillage. On Sunday speoial services of thanksgiving were held throughout the country, and on Tuesday a genenl holiday was proclaimed, and the country was given over to glad rejoicing. The centre of attraction was London, and never in the history of the World has such a sight been witnessed as that in the great metropolis. Millions of her Majesty's subjects, representing the whole of Britain's world wide empire, assembled together with representatives from nearly every foreign nation throughout the globe to do honour to Queen-Empresa. The scenes in the streets were most striking in oharaoter, the bright uniforms of the military, the gay colours of the dresses of the lady spectators, and the splendid decorations com- bining to make up a gorgeous and imposing picture. The period of waiting was whiled away with music performed by the military bands along the line, and hearty greetings were accorded the Colonial and Foreign conents as they passed along to take their position in the procession. From an early hour telegrams of congratulation poured into Buckingham Palace from all part. of the World, and just before leaving the palaoe her Majesty despatched the following message to her people in every portion of the British EmpIre From my heart I thank my beloved people. May God bless them.—Victoria R. and I." Punctually at 11.15 the Queen, looking wonderfully well and happy, and accompanied by the Princess of Wales and Princess Christian left the palaoe in her carriage drawn by a superb team of eight cream ponies, and the Life Guards closing up, the magnificent pageant at once commenced its progress towards St. Paul's Cathedral, the guns at the same moment booming out a royal salute. All along the line her Majesty was greeted with tremendous enthusiasm, the volume of cheers, mingled with bars of the National Anthem, rolling along in a great wave. The Queen was visibly affected by this striking demonstration of love and loyalty. By the Giflia, on the sight of Old Temple Bar, the Lord Mayor was awaiting the arrival of the procession, and here he presented to the Soveriga the great peal sword given to the Corporation by Elizabeth. Her Majesty lightly touched the hilt of tha sword, and his Worship then took up his position in front of the Royal carriage. The eoene at St. Paul's Cathedral was most impressive. The vast edifice was surrounded by multitudes of people; in the Churchyard the Yeomen of the Guard and the Household Infantry were on duty, and on the steps the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Arohbishop of York, the Bishop of London, and other dignitaries had taken up their places, together with the massed choir of 500 voices. Her Majesty, as she drove up to the cathedral was accorded a splendid ovation, and immediately the Royal carriage had taken up its position, there was a few moment's hush, upon which broke the grandly majestic tones of the 44 Te Deum." At the conclusion of the brief service the Archbishop of Canterbury pronounced the Benediction, followed by the singing of the Doxology, the vast orowda beyond the actual soene taking up the strain. The Archbishop then called for three cheers for her Majesty, which was given with magnificent enthusiasm, the city bells ringing out& joyous peal, and the massed bands playing the National Anthem. THE THANKSGIVING SERVICES. On Sunday, the 20th inat., the services in ohurohes and obapels were of a distinct ohara ter, and we-* marked by prayers of thanksgiving to Almighty God, and by speoial references in the sermons of the day. HOLYWELL. THE PARISH OHUROH. The services at the Parish Church were of a special kiad and the form of prayer with thanksgiving issued by authority was used morning and evening. The members of the D (Holywell) Company, 2nd Vol. Batt. R. W.F., under the command of Oaptaoo J. B. Feilding, &i's,mblèd at the Drilt Hall, nearly seventy strong, and headed by the band of the company, under the charge of Bandma-ter Briggs, marohed t ) Church. The s?rvioe opened with the appointed hymn, 410 King of Kings, whose reign of old," written by the Bishop of Wakefield and set to music by Sir ArthurSullivan. The service was conducted by the Vicar (the Re v. R.O. William*, M.A.), theopecial lessons being read by the Rev Joseph Davies, B.A. The appoioted Pealms (xx., ci and oxxi.), were chanted by the oboir. The anthem was 44 Behold, 0 Lord, our Defender," composed by Dr Hird for the service in York Minster. The sermon was preached by the Rev. Joseph Davifs, who, taking his text from Paalm lxvii., 3-11 Let the people praise Thee, 0 God, let all the people praise Thee," delivered an eloquent and appropriate sermon, and said, the throne was the symbol of the nation's unity, the oentre of the nation's life. Sixty years had oome and gore since that glad day, when amid solemn prayers and hymns of praise, and roar of oanoon and the rejoicing shoots of thousands of sobjeuti, the crown was placed upon the brow of the girl-queen, to whom, now in the evening of her life, full of grace and honour, they offered their homage. Sixty years of storm and sunshine, of opeoiog bode and falling leaves; ai the years through which she has lived and reigned, so also h,. been the years of her life. Storm and sunshine have mingled in her life. God had rained down upon her, His rich-st blessings, and He had also laid Hi, chastening band upon her. Yt t, through all those changing scenei of life, God had preserved her to her people—who ever sorrow in her beividesp, and who always rejoice in her joy-and before this people she has always oonsistently held up a brave and t ue example of patienoe, fortitude, quiet resignation, and humt le compliance to the Will of God. Fur the years she has passed in the service of God for the purity of her Court; for the blameless- ness of her life, and that devotion to duty which marks every hour of her life -I Let the people praise Thee, 0, Lord"; for her queenly graoiousness and tender womanly sympathy with the sorrows of her people, which has ever distinguished her long and happy reign-let thanks be rendered to Almighty God; for the mercies which he has vouohstfed to this great nation, during the last 60 years; for the great shaking of the dead bones and marvellous revival within the National Ohuroh, which sball ever be associated with the Viotorian era; for the world wHe extension of the Kingdom of oar Master, Christ; for the planting of the glorious standard of Christ upon many a strong- hold of Satan; for the blood of martyrs which in the days of Victoria as truly as in the days of the Cseiars, has been the stay of the Church, Let the people praise Thee." The service ojosad with the singing of the National Anthem by Choir and Congregation. The Volunteers aftar service marohed up to their Drill Hall aud when fronting the Town Bnildiags in Hiigh-street the band played 44 God save the Queen." In the evening til form of sarvioe authorised for the day was repeated. The Rev R. O. Williams, Vicar, effieiated and preached a sermon of much appropriateness taking as bfs text If Render no to Cassar the things that are Cesiar's and unto God the things that are Goils." It was not to celebrate, be said, the mere lapse of years or the length exceeded of other reigns that Holy Convocation," he may so term it. had been summoned, but to rehearse the righteous aota of the Lord and of His role over His people. It was not their arm that bad gottet, them the victory. They had to thank God, who had plaoed Victoria on the throne,—a bright example set before her people. It was for no ordinary blelSings that they gave thanks to God for the pure, peaoeful, gentle reign. They soaroely realized what it meant, until they looked abroad and saw the bellrt and heavy bu-dens of Europe,—the unbroken peace they had enj 'yed, the substantial improve- ments in the comforts and enjoyments of the working classes, wbioh has distinguished more than anything e'se, the prosent reign. England had prospered because it has held faet by God, and was governed by a God-fearing Quesn. The evening service oonoluded with the hymn with the refrain 0 Lord stretch forth Thy mighty arm, and guard and bhl5 our Fatherland," After the Benediction, Stainer's 44 Sevenfold Amen" was oung by the choir, and the congregation standing sang 41 God save the Queen." Mr J. H. Hope, B.A., organist and choirmaster, played in addition to the masio of the services, appropriate voluntaries before and after each service. The congregations morning and evening were much above the ordinary number. The offertories were in aid of. the Flintshire Dispensary, and appeals were made by both clergy- men in the course of their sermoo, pointing out that it had been the expressed desire of the Queen that any commemoration should be for ths aleviation of the poor and suffering. The collections amounted to 98 17r. 6d. ST. WINEFRIDE'S CATHOLIC OHUROH. On Sunday morning at St. Winefride's Catholic Churih. speoial prayers of thanksgiving authorised by the Vbar Apostolio of Wales (Bishop Mostyn) were said, and at the close of the sorvioe the National Anthem was played on the organ.

BAGILLT.—AN INTERESTING INCIDENT THE QUEEN AT HOLYWELL. The inhabitants of Bagillt were fully alive to the opportunities of the Jubilee, and right loyally they celebrated the day. From end to end of the long street flags and bunting and wreathing of ever- greens were displayed and fluttered gaily ia the breeze. Early in the afternoon the Celebration Oommittee met at the Boot to form a prooetsion. Mr Robert Foulkes (ohairman) Messrs. E. Roberts, W. Horrobin, and W. Milnes, as reprefentating the Parish Council led the way, and they were followed by the Celebration Oommittee represented by Mr J. H. Johnson, Dr. Hamlet Davies, Messrs. Newton Hughes, T. Gratton Thomas, A Robert, Gleave, T. Jones, W. A. Humfrey, Edward Roberts, Jae. Reeoe, o. The Bagillt Prize Band, under the conduotorship of Mr W. Alfred Jones, played for the prooession. The Bagillt Board School scholars were the flrst detaohment to join the procession, and were under the oharge of the headmaster, Mr W. M. James. Proceeding along, the procession was joined by the St. David's Lodge of Druids, Duke of Wellington and Welshman's Friend Courts of Foresters, the Ancient Order of Shepherds, and by the Cambrian Lodge of the Independent Order of Oddfellows. Contiauing the march the head of the procession was considerably beyond the Blossoms Inn when the scholars of the National Sohools, under Mr O. A. Thomas and assistant teachers, joined. The order of the prooession was then reversed, and r turning to opposite the Foresters' Hall a halt was made, and the whole oonoourse of sohool children and members of Friendly Societies and public joined in singiag the National Anthem, 11 Hen Wlad fy nhadau," and the Doxology, Mr O. A. Thomas conducting, and the Bagilit Prize Band accompanying. The procession afterwards formed into order and went towards the Boot where the Board Sohool children branohed off for the schools where tea was provided. The prooession then escorted the National Sohool children to their sohools for tea. The caterer for the tea was Masi-rd Robert Thomas and Co., New Bee Hive, who gave every satisfaction. The Marshals of the procession were Messrs T. Jones, W. Higginbotham, Thomas Price, Samuel Owen, Thomas Roberts, Alban Thomas and W. M. James. There were about 1600 persons in the prooession. The Celebration Oommittee opened the day with the distribution of paokets of tea. sugar and bread of the value of two shillings, to 80 poor persons not in receipt of parish relief. The distribution was made at the Pavilion and the gifts were muoh appreciated. The funds (about £ 8) were provided out of the balanoe of a Poor Relief Fund, in the hands of Mr T. Humphreys. The Oommittee also entertained to tea 73 poor people at the Board Sohools and 50 at the National Sohools. Eaoh of the scholars at the Board and National Sohools are to receive a Jubilee Testament as a memento of the occasion. An incident of an interesting nature took place in the Lodge room of the Druids Friendly Sooiety. Upon their return, after the prooession, a short convivial meeting was held, Mr John Jones, N.G., presiding. The toast of The Queen," was given and received with musical honours. An old member of the Druids, Brother Hugh Davies, who boosted as being the same age as Her Majesty, in the oourse of a speech taid he started work when 7. years of age, under conditions vastly different to those existing at the present day. He oommenced at the Factory at Holywell, and the heat being so great at the works shoes and stockings were never worn. When he was about 13 years of age, Her Majesty, with Her Mother, the Duchess of Kent, passed through Holywell, and he well remembered running out of the works to get a glimpse of the young Prinoeis. He saw her, and he believed there were now but few living of those who recollected the passage of the Queen through Holywell. He rejoiced to see suoh a grand aelebratioa and that he had been able to take some slight share in it (hear, hear). After tea, the children and publio generally adjourned to a field at the rear of the Dee Bank Works, kindly lent by Messrs Walkers, Parker, and Co., where sports were held and the Bagillt PriM Band played. Shortly after nine o'clock, a large bonfire that bad been erected on the waste bank adjoining the leld, was lighted and its glare was visible for a aonsiderable distance. The pyre was constructed under the direction of Messrs W. A. Humfrey, J. H. Johnson, Edward Roberts, W. Horrobin and Brentnall. Mr Daniel Jones, Gadlys, and Mr W. Pieroe, Oaklands, gave wood, and Mr H. B. Chamberlain, tar barrels and other inflamable material. The Celebration Oommittee and the Officials, Chairman and Secretaries desarve erreat credit for the energy they displayed and the su-oaesa with which their efforts were crowned. The public support they received in subscriptions was much appreciated, and it may te fairly said they performed their duties judioiously and to the satisfaction of the village generally. BRYNFORD. In oomme rotation of the Diamond Jubilee the school ohildren and others were entertained to tea on Tuesday. At 3 p.m., the obildren assembled in the Reotory field and each received a Jubilee medal, and all formed in procession and marohed to Saron singing II God save the Queen," and then returned to the sohool. After tea, games, races, &o., were indulged 10, in the Rectory field nut, sweets, biscuits, ke., were distributed II", rtr the ohildren. Great praise is due to the laditM ,,o made the tea, and the members of the Young Mm'i Class, who waitsd on the children, and also assisted them with their games, Ac. Mr and Mrs Jones, the Reotory, were indefatigable in their exertions t> make the treat a success. A large number of flags were exhibited in various plaoes in the pariah. At 8 p.m. the children were called together, and gave hearty cheers for all who had helped in giving them suoh an excellent treat. They ended their pleasure by tinging" God save the Qaeen," and all the children received a piece of cake as thiy left. HOLYWELL. The loyalty of Holywell and Grejnneld was dis- played in an enthusiastic manner on Jubilee day. Preparations for the celebration had been eommenoed on Monday, and early on Tuesday morning the streets presented a gay holiday appearance. Perhaps it may be said, that the first note in the day's oelebrations was struck by the Postal Officials, who, at six o'clock in the morning, as they were about t j disperse on their various reutes loaded with their bags of letters and paroels lustily sang in front of the Post Offioe, in High-street, the National Anthem. From that hour to mid. night, the town was a scene of gaity and thorough enjoyment. The early part of the day was occupied by the publio in oomjpl^jjiag the deiorations, and by the celebration oommittee in perfecting their arr mgements for the afternoon proceedings. In referenoe to the decorations—High- street lookei very fine, but Well-itreet, which peculiarly lends itself to decoration, had by far the prettiest effect. Cross-street and Whitford-atreet had a good display. There were numerous plaoes in the town even brilliantly decorated. The Royal Standard for the Town Buildings (supplied by Mr Ayer, Victoria House), was to hand, but it was im- possible to have the flag-staff fixed on the buildings; it was consequently flown from a tall flag-staff planted in front of the Town Buildings. The Holy- well Post Offioe was very tastefully decorated, two large flags on poles flanked the front, the two gas lamp-posts were wreathed with flowers and ever- greens, and over the door was a trophy of flags over a shield of the royal arms. Vron Rouse looked very effeotive over the entrance gate a arch was formed by the initials 4 V. R. being the supports to a centre star. Orer the front door a trophy of flags drooped round a shield of the Union. The N. and S. W. Bank, in addition to flags and shields exhibited in front of the building the initials V. R. in laurel relieved with ribbons of the national colours. From each of the windows of the National Provincial Bank flags were hung. Lambert's Hotel was particularly effeotive, the floral decoration of the windows and the judicious use of flags making quits a pioture The King's Head Hotel and the Hotel Victoria were neatly deoorated, but more adapted to illumination. The Queen's Head was deoorated with flags and loyal mottoes fringed with evergreens The Volunteer Arms made an effeotive display. The entrance from Brynford-st. wasabowerofevergreens and spread over the wall, picked out with bunting and coloured lanterns. Brlntirion House, Brynford- street, was very brightly deoorated. The entranoe gate was arched over and from tree to tree np the lawn leading to the house there were festoons of flags, while over the front door there were shields and trophies. Trosymaes Villa was a real gem of deooracioo. Several other plaoes in Brynford-street were dooorated with various colours. Busineed premises in High-street were with few exceptions marked out by a variety of flags. Sootoher's Bazaar looked gay with a festooning of ooloured muslin and flags. The Grapes Ian, Oiifton House, Exohange House, Messrs Hague and Son, Parry and Morris, Boar's Head, Spread Eagle, and London House, Mr Holgate's and other premises made features in the decorations by the plentiful uae of flags and bunting.
