DRUGS WONT DO. FREE TRIAL OF SOMETHING THAT WILL DO. You would be perfectly astonished if yon were made aware of the many thousands of pounds absolutely thrown away from year to year upon so-called curatives that are foisted upon a publio only too willing to believe the specious arguments laid before them, Even the bard-earned shillings of the very poor are wasted in this way in fact, it is to the ignorant, anxious to rid themselves of the various ailments which handicap them in the race for life, that much orguments are too often addressed. Now, btrength and musoular activity, rosy cheeks, plumpness, and health can be obtained without medicine. The replenishing of the system from the wasting of tissues which is going on every day can only be accomplished by the proper assimilation of food. It cannot be done with modicine. It can, how ever, be accomplished with a perfect, flesh-forming, palatable and agreeable Fuod Beverage. Dr. Tibblos' Vi-Cocoa is such a Food Beverage, possessing, as it does, wonderful nourishing, strengthening, and stimulative powers, unsurpasfed by any other Food Beverago. Dr. Tibbies' Vi- Cocoa is not a medicine. It does simply what it is claimed to do, and its st engttenicg powers are being reoogoised to an extent hitherto uokuown in the histoiy of any preparation. Merit, and merit alone, is what we olaim for Dr. Tibbles' Vi-Cocoa, and ile are prepared to send to any reader who namea the Flinshire Observer," (a postcard will do) a dainty sample tin of Dr. Tibbies' Vi-Cocoa free and poet-paid. There is no magic ia all this. It is a plain, hrr traightforward off r. It is done to introduce tLIf i>>erits of Vi-Cocoa into etory home. Dr. Tibbies' Vi-Cocoa. as a concentrated form of nourishment and vitality, is invaluable; nay, more than tbis; for to all who wish to face the strife and battle of life with greater endurance and more sustained exertion, it is absolutely indispensable. Dr. Tibbies' Vi-Cocoa ia made up in 6d. packets, and 9d. and If. 6d. tics. It can be obtained from all chemists, grocers, and storep, or from Dr. Tibbles' Vi-Cocoa, Limited, 60, 61, and 62, Bunbill Row, London, E.C.

The propeitie3 to be valued wfro in the parishes of Cileen. Coleshill Fawr, Flint, Holywell, Mold and Northop. In one oasP,-the Hawsrden and Distriet Water Works, t' e assessment was raised from X9 to C500, which was appealed against. Consequently, the Assessment Committee sought expert assistance in the matter. -Mr Pe^ie asked was it a general re-valuation of works. If it was, it would be serious for those works, who, to keep pace with the keen competition of the present day, w.re forcei to extend their works without gaining a proportionate benefit.- The Clerk replied that it wns not the question of the re-valuation of the Union, but of certain works in certain parishes.—Rev WatHn Will ams Is the Committed of opinion tiaS the experts will confirm thpir valuation.—Tbe CUrk: That is not tbe point. The Committee consider they are rot competent to form a judgment reasonable and fair between the parties who pay the rate and the authorities who make it.—Mr W. H. Lloyd propo-ol and the Rev Watkin Williams seconded that the consent of the Board be given to the appointment of an expert valuer.

SURGERY UNDER DIFFICULTIES.—Everyone Knows that all the year round fleets of trawlers are out for months at a time on the Dogger Bank, as far to the east as Heligoland, among the northern latitudes to the Norwegian coast, the gallant east coast fishermen ply their trade. To each fleet is attached a certain number of hospital boats. Some of these are fitted up with sick berths, and are used entirely as hospitals; but several have a certain amount of hospital accommodation, but carry on fishing as well. In these vessels, ranging from 80 to 180 tons burthen, the surgeons have their quarters. We were talking to one of these a few days ago. He is very enthusiastic about the work, and intends being off again in a week or two. We asked about the weather in the North Sea at this time. He said, "Yon have no idea what it :is like. Out there the wind is nearly always in the north or east, and comes cutting through wraps and great coats likes hundreds of knives. In December the Bea water freezes as it flies over the decks, the ropes are like rods of iron, and the blocks have to be thawed with hot water before the ropes will move. The rollers are as large as those in the Atlantio, and, owing to the shallow water, jerk and chop as waves only do in the North Sea. What with the dead drag of the trawl and the erratic sea, the motion of the boats has to be experienced to be appreciated. It is warranted to knock over an ordinary yachts- man in less than five minutes." We asked about his work. It is surgery under difficulties," he said. I should not advise the every-day practitioner accustomed to nurses and all appliances to risk it. Perhaps a man has his head laid open by a fall, or smashes a limb. This generally happens in particularly rough weather, and a boat is sent at once for one of us. It is not like a summons on land, which may mean anything or nothing ene out there always means serious business. Whatever the hour, day or night, out we turn. The flrst difficulty is to get into the boat, or doctor's brougham, as it is playfully called. What with the rolling of the ship we are in, and the tossing of the boat, this is no easy task. It has to be done exactly at the right moment, or one may be crushed to death in an instant. Having arrived at our destination we have to work under the strangest conditions. Often and often have I set a compound fracture while one sturdyseaman gripped me round the waist, and two or three others did the same kind office for tbapatient. Then if possible we send theinjured man ashore by the steam fish carrier, but sometimes a fog will come up, which will cause a delay of any time from a day to a week." What recreation have you ?" we inquired. Books, and chatting with the fisher- men," he said. I am now quite expert at reading with my back against a bulk head, and my feet braced against anything handy. The boat is never moderately still for an instant. The fishermen are splendid fellows; the kind of men who turn out in lifeboats to almost certain death, and never know what It is to flinch. Many a pipe have I had with them in their spare time, which is but brief. Now that the mission has to a large extent cut out the Dutch coopers," with their vile gin, the poor fellows have a chance'of living decent lives. They will stand almost anything in the way of pain, and obey the doctor like children. CURIOUS CAVE DWELLINGS.—Mr. J. W. Tourney contributes to Science'an excellent paper on cliff and cave dwellings in Central Arizona. He refers especially to dwellings in cliffs rising 100 feet or more above Beaver reek, which flows into the Verde river. In the perpendicular walls of one of these cliffs is a well-preserved ruin known as Monte- zuma s Castle. It is midway between the rim of the cliff and the bed of the stream, and is neither house nor cave, but a combination of the two. Not accessible I from the summit of the cliff, it can only be reached from below, and even here not without the use of a ladder, wbich, if short, the climber must pull up from one ledge to another in making the ascent. The entire front is of artificial walls built of large, flat pieces of limestone, with openings here and there for doors and windows. The rooms are small, only about five feet to the ceiling. Generally a small opening two or three feet in diameter connects one room with another, and a small orifice in the ceiling gives access to the room abeve. The openings in the ceilings are never directly under one another, so that anyone who might stumble could only fall the height of one storey. The floors are mostly of flat stones supported on timber cut from the surrounding mountains. Many of the timbers are still sound. The rooms all show considerable skill in their construction. Those in the rear are dark, dungeon-like caves hollowed from the solid rock, and are now the abode of thousands of bats, which fly about in great numbers when disturbed by visitors. A few miles above Montezuma's Castle, on the oppo- site bank of the creek, a conspicuous cone-like mountain rises a few-hundred feet above the sur- rounding country. The summit is a narrow rim enclosing a crater some 300 feet in diameter and with nearly perpendicular walls. Standing on the rim one can look down 100 feet upon the dark-blue water of a small lake in the bosom of the mountain. The lake, 100 yards in diameter, and of unknown depth, is known as Montezuma's. Well. In the steep sides of] the (crater are a number of caves, which at one time were the abode of man. A few are natura 1, but the greater number are the result of human effort. The rim is crowned with the fallen walls of an ancient ruin more than 100 feet long. Far down the mountain side, below the level of the water in the crater, the outlet of the well flows from between an opening in the rocks. This stream is large and constant, and at present is usedjto irrigate a ranch:in the valley below. Ages ago the builders of caves and castles utilised this same stream to irrigate portions of the neighbouring rich valley.

JUBILEE CELEBRATION. This large and agricultural parish showed its loyalty and devotion to our beloved Queen in a moet conspicuous and eathusiastio manner on Jubilee day. It is often said, that it is wtll to have a good beginning, and indeed a good beginning was assured when our highly esteemed rector, the Rev. D. Morgan, B.D., and Miss Morgan (who are always so leady and willing to assist in every good work) gave a general invitation to all the inhabitants of the parish, young and old to a tea. febtival. How well the invitation was appreciated one may judge from the fact, that out of a total population of about 900, upwards of 800 accepted it. We may just mention heie that Mr Morgan with his usual bentfioence gave a similar treat tan years ago. At 1.15 p.m. tho ch'ldren of the Ysceifiog day schools with their friends started to meet those of the Lixwm schools, the meeting place was Ffynnon-y-cyff hill. Here a grand procession was formed with flags and bannerettes flying and bright medals dazzling in the noonday sun, headed by the Lixwm Brass Band in their pretty and unique uniform, and by a royal standard (presented by Mr R. Lloyd, Plascooh), the scene, as many testified, was most effective. The Parish Church was reached at 2.20 p.m., where a fhori thanksgiving service was oonduoted by the Ray. R. J. Oliver, ourat3 of the parish. Miss Morgan, the Rectory, ably prodded at the organ, aud the band from the gallery aocompaoyed the special hymns aud the National Anthem at the close. At 2.60 the procession was reformed and marching to a field adjoining the Rectory, sat down to an excellent repast. We must not forget to mention the names of those ladies who so kindly and good humoredly presided at the tables, when we have t) consider tbe fact that they had to stand for hours together under the broiling sun, to which was added the heat ot the teapots :-Miss F. Morgan; the Rectory Mrs Oliver, Brookside Mrs and Miss Lloyd, Plasoooh Misti Edwards, Talbot, and Miss Swan; Mrs and Mies Jones, The Sohools; Miss Edwards, Ty Canol; Mrs Smart, Cross Foxes Mrs Rcsafortb, Mynyddyllan Mrs and Miss Edwards, Tynycaaau Mrs and Miss Jenkins, Fronhaul. To bsing over, various sports and games were held, and the dance on the green was fzealy indulged in. Much praise is due to the oommittee consisting of Mr J. Davies, Mr J. Roberts and Mr Evans, Lixwm, Mr Main, senior and Mr Main, junior, Afonwen, Mr Parry, Conglog Mill, Mr Hughes, and Mr Griffiths, Ysoeifiog-, Rev. R. J. Oliver, curate, Mr Jones, schoolmaster, treasurer, Mr Edwards, Talbot, secretary, aud T. J. D. Jones, Esq., chairman, for working so energetically and harmoniously together to make the day a success, and a success it proved to be. Over Lll were collected in the parish towards the sports, medals and the aged poor. The respected chairman and Mr Lloyd, Plasocob, subscribing a guinea each. Mr Davies, Flynnon-y-oyff, very kindly lent boards and a pole to climb. Many thanks are due to the Lixwm Brass Band, under the able conductorsbip of Mr Alsopp, for the saorifiue made in refusing two or three remunerative engage- ments for the day, that they might give their services gratuitously at home. A vote of thanks to the Rector and Miss Morgan was ably proposed by Mr John Robert-, Walwen, in a loyal and patriotio speech, and aocordei with great enthusiasm by tbe large crowd, the band striking up II For he is a jolly good fellow." At the close of the evening there was a grand display of balloons and fireworks. Many of those who took active part in the proceedings of the day were kindly invited to partake of supper at the Rectory.

LLANASA. SODDBIT DSATB OF Mas T. H. JACKSON.—We have to announce the sudden death on Tuesday morning, at the Manor-house, Claughton, of Mrs Hermine Jackson, wife of Mr T. H. Jaokson, J.P., who for many years resided at U-yrn Castle, Llanasa. The deof (Hed lady, who bad been an invalid for many years, accompanied htr husband to London last week, and witnessed the Royal prooession from the Reform Club. On Saturday she was among the distinguished company who witnessed the Naval Review at Spithead from the Tentonio. She returned home on Monday, and that evening she retired to bel in good spirits. At ten o'clock on Tuesday morning it was found that she had passed away during the night. Mrs Jaokson was eldest daughter of the late Mr Daniel Meinertzhagen, of Wimbledon, and she leaves a family of seven sons and three daughters. She had travelled extensively for the benefit of her health, having been to the Cape and twice to Australia. She was one of the passengers on the Ootopaxi when that illfated steamer was wreoked in the Straits of Magellan. The funeral takes plaoe in the family vault, Flaybriok-hill Cemetery, this afternoon.
NEWMARKET. JT73N.HU OBLBBBATIOK.—The Jubilee celebrations on Tuesday week were of a truly loyal character. The little village was quite astir in the early morning and was gaily decorated with flags, &o. At three o'clock the children met at the sohool from whenoe they marched through the village and returned to partake of an excellent tea provided for them. The ohildren having done ample justioe with the dainties, the adults of the parish were treated to a substantial tea which was thoroughly enjoyed. The tea being over, the ohildren assembled at Llangs field, kindly lent by Mr T. Morgan, where an excellent pro- gramme of sports was gone through under the management of the following gentlemen Judges: Messrs Dean and Barton starter, Mr Thos. Jones stewards, Me.rs J. Jones, and T. J. Hughes; olerk, Mr J. H. Savage, who carried out all the arrangements very satisfactorily. The inhabitants however were not satisfied without bearing their share als) in the bonfire part of the celebration, which was undoubtedly the most inspiring feature of the commemoration. Preoisely at 10 o'clock the pile, which had been built on Clip-y-Gop, was lit by Mr Dean, of Graig Arthur. From the summit of the hill several bonfires could be observed on the encircling hills, and the effect was very impressive. Whilst the conflagration was proceeding, the male voice choir rendered some sweet melodies, and before the happy company dispersed, their hearts and voices were awakened to the strains of the National Anthem. It is only fair to the committee to state that they had been diligent in collecting sufficient funds to carry out these proceedings, and no donbt the result was far beyond their most sanguine hope. M. A. Ralli, Esq., Henfryn Hall, contributed JES towards the funds, and Mrs McLaren, Preetityn, provided the timber, &c., for the bonfire.

MOSTYN. HAY HABVBsT.-On Thursday last, Mr Pownall, of Plas Derwen, harvested and staoked a splendid orop of hay. PBEFKRMBNT OFFERED TO A CLBBGYMAN.—- The Lord Bishop of Llandaff has offered th3 delightfully situated oountry living of Bettws-yn-Rhos, near Abergele, to. the Rev Andrew E. H. Hyslop, vicar of All Saint", Cardiff, and incumbent of the Welsh Church in that town. The living is of the value of 4>400 a year, with commodious modem Rectory and extensive grounds. Mr Hyslop, who is a native of Mostyn, is an indefatigable and suecesiful clergy- man. He was ordained in 1880 to the important curacy of Aberdare, and left there in 1884 to take oharge of the new district and church of St. Winefred's in the parish of Mountain Ash. Three years later the Bishop of Llandaff promoted him to be the first Welsh inoumbent of Cardiff. Since then he has been enabled to bnild Eglwys Dcwi Sant at a cost of over £6,000, and also St. El van's Chapel oosting 9800. In 1890 he was appointed to the vicarage of All Saints. We believe, Mr Hyslop has decided not to leave his work at Cardiff and his lifework in the diocese of Llandaft, and has therefore deolined the Bishop's offer.
MOIAD. SMASH AT THE POST OPFIOH.—-Whilst) the officials at this office were engaged on Friday morning in busily making up their despatches, their equilibrium was upset for a time by the sudden appearance of a back end of a ginger beer lurry poppiag through a large sheet of plate glass in the office front scattering glass in all directions, The cause of the mischief was through the horee in the cart suddenly jibbing, and the driver lost complete control over it. We understand that the damage is covered by insurance. TUB INTHBMHDIATB SOHOOLS.-It is anticipated that the funds for the new County Sohool, at Mold, will benefit to the amount of 4.50 owing to the jabilee subloriptic-nq. During the present week the South Kensington examinations are b3ing held in connection with these sohools, and the eabjeots take n comprise, mathematios, chemistry, meohanios, geometrical drawing, fr-aeband and model drawing. The total number of candidates presanted numbered 25, and with the exception of a few in the art ex. amination all were students at the County School. PBKSKNTATION TO A VOLUSTIMICE. -There is nothing like esprit de corps, it creates good feeling and makes life worth living for, and this is examplified by the testimony which is shown to one another amongst our looal volunteers. Corporal Sharp, from the Gas and Water Offices, having reoeived an appointment at Beok',s. Hill- on -Sea, was not allowed to meke his departure without some memento from his comrades. It consisted of a silver mounted stick, supplied by Mr Saum, jeweller. The presentation was made on Saturday by Corporal Last, an intimate friend of Mr Sharp, and there were present to bid farewell Sergeant Instructor Whybron, Oolour Sergeant Jones, and Sergeants Davies, James, &c. Mr Sharp was an enthusiastic volunteer and his presence will be much missed, especially by the members of the shooting olub for whom he acted as secretary. LABOBNT OF A COAT.-On Saturday last, at the Oounty Hall, before Messrs Thos.

He took off his coat and hung it on the hedge. The hedge was next to the road. At 12 o'olook the ooat was gone. He told Mr Whittingham the same nigbt that his coat was gone, and as a result information was given to the police. Evidenoe having been given by Matthew Bellis, oarter, at the Hafod farm, as to teeing prisoner on the morning of the 18th of May going into the field where the prosecutor was working; by John William Morgan, assistant to Mr Horton, pawnbroker, Wrexbam, as to the prisoner pawning the coat on the 19th of May, in the name of "Joseph Jones," and ,by Police-oonstable Jones (Caergwrle), as to arresting the prisoner.
