Bagillt, on Tuesday evening last, Mr Robert Foulkes (chairman of the Holywell Parish Council) p-resided over the monthly meeting of the above Council. Thfra were also present-Messra Thomas Jones, Thoa. Hughes, Walter Milnes, Walter Horrobin, Bdwin Roberta, Aaron Thcipias, John Edwards, Wtn. Davies Samuel Lloyd, Thas. Humphreys; elerk-Mr John Marsden. OBJECTING TO THE MINUTES. Mr Thomas Hughes objected to the insertion upon the minute book of a resolution relating to the appointment of a committee to investigate the charities and to attend the proposed Joint Committee. His contention was that the pro- ceedings not having been legally correct put the Council in a very awkward position if the other authorities were to turn round upon them at the inquiry. Considerable discussion ensued in which an attempt was made by several mem- bers to explain the position of affairs, and the Chairman spent some time ic going through the minute book in search of the origin of the resolution.—Mr Samuel Lloyd I more that the nrinutes stand, Mr Hughes was not at the meeting.—Mr Hughes having explained how it was he had been absent, the Chairman said he should rule the motion in order and allow it to stand.—Mr Hughes said it was illegal according to their own standing orders, as no motion could be rescinded within a period of three months, and if it was allowed on the minute book any member could attend the inquiry and object. He called attention to the fact to safe- guard the position of the Council.—The Chair- man said Mr Hufhes' quoting the standing order 41, recalled the whole circumstances. They had suspended the standing orders accord- ing to order No. 49, and therefore they were quite in order.—Mr Hughes: That won't do.- The Chairman: 0, yes it will.-Mr Hughes But where is your minute to that effect.—The Chairman Well, that is an omission.-Tlae minutes were confirmed as read on the proposi- tion of Mr Samuel Lloyd, Mr Thos. Hughes remarking he hoped the Clerk would make a note of his objection. GREENFIELD PAROCHIAL COMMITTEE. A letter was receivad from the Holywell Rural District Council, in answer to the com- munication of the Parish Council dated the 5th June, in reference to the meeting of the Green- field Parochial Committee, and asking what were the matters for the consideration of the Committee.—Mr Wm, Davies Nothing. I beg to propose that the letter lie on the table. This was agreed to. BRYNOELYN BOAD. The Clerk to the District Council also wrote stating that the matter of the road leading kom Spring Bank to the Bryncelyn-road had come up for discussion. It was decided to call the attention of their Surveyor to the statement that the road had been disturbed by him, and if such was the ease, he would ba instructed to restore it to its otiginal State. I hey, however, could net repair the road, as it was not a public one-il reply they had made upon a previous ocoasion.-The Clerk (Mr John Marsden) suid he had seen the District Council Surveyor and he told him the matter was receiving their attention. THE POLLING DISTRICTS. The Clerk said there had been a Committee meeting of the County Council with regard to the Polling Districts and places, but they were DO affected as their polling places were the same as previously. THE AUDIT. STotice had been served upon the Council by Mr B. Morgan, district auditor, that the audit would be held at the Boardroom of the Guardians at Holywell on the 29th inst. A (fLAm FOR COMPENSATION. A letter was read from Mr T. Gratton Thomas (late clerk of the Bagillt Lighting Inspectors), referring to his compensation for loss of office. —Mr T. Hughes Is not that a matter for the Lighting Committee ?-The Clerk: It has been before the Lighting Committee, and referred back to the Conncil.—Upon the proposition of Mr W. Horrobin, the Clerk was instructed to reply to Mr Thomas that the matter could not be entertained. It was remarked that Mr Thomas had been paid up to the time of the transfer. BAD FEELING BETWEEN COUNCILS.— REMARKABLE DISCUSSION. Mr William Davies proposed with regard to the letters frow the District Council, that letter (a) referring to the Bryncelyn footpath, be left te lie upon the table, and that letter (b) be acknowledged by the Clerk sending them the best thanks of the Parish Council, because they have been right for once in three years.—The Clerk: Is this the way to create better feeling ? —The Chairman: Better feeling never while the condition of things exists in Holywell as at. present.—Mr Thomas Hughes: I beg to call attention to the fact that the District Council are a superior body to ourselves. The other day I saw a big dog, a superb mastiff, going along the roati Mr W. Davies: I beg to rise to a point of order. Is there an amend- ment ?—Mr Hughes: I am speaking upon an amendment. I propose that a courteous reply be sent to the District Council.—Mr W. Davies Is it Parish bueiuess ? I don't care for dogs, Newfoundlands, thoroughbreds or pups (laughter).—Mr Hughes having had the Chairman's permission to proceed—remarked that the Council was in the lowest position of all authorities in the land.—The Chairman: Don't say that.—Mr Hughes: Very well; I was speaking upon the dog story. But what I want is for Councillor Davies to send a courteous reply, and therefore I rise to ask that such a reply be sent; it will answer the same purpose. I do not want the Council or anyone to think we are low blackguards.—The Chairman If they think we are a set of blackguards they are a set of low cut threats (hear, hear).—There being no seconder to Mr Hughes' proposition to send a courteous reply, Mr Davies' proposition wai declared carried. CANTON COP. Mr Edwin Roberta said that this was a busy time of the year, and people were com- plaining very bitterly at having to go to the other end of the village, to cross the line for the purpose of plying their occupation. He wished the Parish Council to write asking when the London and North-Western Railway Company were going to put up a foot-bridge at the Flint end. He also wanted to elect a Committee for the purpose of inspecting all the footpaths in the parish.—With regard to the first part of the proposition it was pointed out that the London and North-Western Railway were going to do the work as soon as possible, and that the verbal communications of Mr Dawson has since been confirmed ia writing to the Holywell Rurnl; District Coun6il.-Mr Roberts: Then it is the District Council who should have given us information ?-r Humphreys thought it best to send to the District Council for information on the subject, a course that was agreed to.- As a Pootpath Committee, the whole Council was appointed, but Mr Thos. Hughes intimated that he would not act. THE COUNCIL AS A "FREE AND EASY." Mr Thomas Hughes said, in accordance with his notice of motion, and inasmuch as the Council bad permitted members to smoke whilst the Council sat, it was quite as necessary that the members be permitted to take intoxicating drinks, and therefore convert the meetings into a freq and easy at once-Mr Edwin Roberts: I rise to a point of order. Is it the business of the Council ?—Mr Thomas Hughes: Or that the Council withdraw the permission to amoke.The Chairman: There was no permission given to smoke. Wo cannot take hold of big men, who like to smoke, by the necks and chuck them out. You are quite wrong.—Mr Hughes: Evidently there is an expression of animosity against ail I have to say our do on this Council. I wish all members would leave their personal feelings outside as I do, and do all for the weR being of the Parish. Now a permission to smoke was acquired by members, and you gave them that permission. —The Chairman: I did not give anyone per- mission. You state facts and no one will say anything against you.—(Cries of "No permission was given.")—Mr Hughes You remember the statement made by the member (Mr Leigh Howell). He said "I am tired, and if I shall smoke I will stay here all night." You asked -The Chairman It is now nine o'clock and I shall vacate the cbair.-Several members enterad into explanations, asserting it was more of a jest, just because a member was taking up the time of the Council.—Mr Thomas Humphreys said he should not stay there to discuss such things. There was no smoking that he knew of.—Mr T. Hughes (having eventually got permission to proceed) said that there was smoking going on, and alao a great deal of "spitting and hoching" on the part of the general public present. Now, by Act of Parliament the elementary schools were to be kept clean, and how could they be kept cleai with all the smoke and spitting, &o., at about ten and half-past ten at night. The little children came to school in the morning, and owing to the lateness of their departure there was not time for the schools to be cleaned. Then again there was the moral influence to look a. If the Chairman would withdraw- The Chairman There is nothing to withdraw. No permission was given.—Mr Hughes Well, if you do not withdraw, it will be my duty in the interest of morality and in the interest of health and of order to call the attention of the Education Department to the matter, and you will be deprived of the use of the schools.—Mr Horrobin: We cannot be deprived of the schools.—Mr Thomas Humphreys said the school cleaners were always at their work night and morning and he could vouch for the cleanliness of the schools.—The Chairman: Does anyone second Mr Hughes—("No.")— then I shall proceed with the business. A VERY VAGUE MOTION." Mr Thos. Hughes called attention to the next matter on the agenda standing in the name of Mr Edwin Roberts, To call the attention of the Council to some remarks made at the District Council on the 28th of May." He con- sidered that it was very vague, and" ought not to be entertained until the remarks were submitted for the consideration of the members.—The Chairman ruled Mr Roberts in order.—Mr Edwin Roberts said on the 28th of May a cer- tain "pop gun shooter" remarked upon the olass of people living at Bagillt would not do certain things until they were obliged, and that they ought to be summoned. He read the newspaper report and also one of June I lth.- Mr Hughes; Please restriot yourself to May 28th, as upon the agenda.—Mr Roberts appealed to the ohairman. who ruled him out of order.— Upon this ruling it was suggested that the matter be brought for consideration at the next meeting,—Mr Thomas Jones: You will not see me here; it is a waste of time to listen to such things. It is not worth while.—Mr Humphreys: I should like to be clear upon these things, as I am certain, I for one have not expressed any- thing as a District Councillor.—Permission was given to reinstate the motion to consider the remarks made upon May 28th and June 11th. If APPLYING THB GAG." The Chairman said he had a new standing order to be insulted, "That no protest or expre3sion of dissent other than the members votes should be entered upon the minutes of the Council." He proposed it with a view of doing away with personal objections, as for instanoe one by Mr Hughes at the beginning of the meetiDg.—Mr John Edwards: I second the Chairman.—Mr Hughes: I am for liberty; true liberty. The proposition is quite con- trary to the Parish Council Act, which gives to the members of Parish Councils especially the power of expressing themselves freely. If such a motion was carried he would be sorry and grieved to see the Council going backwards instead of going forwards. The minute book would eventually beoome an historical book, but if tampered with in that manner it would be a useless book instead of a true record of the proceedings.—The newstanding order was agreed to, by Dice VOt8 against one.—Mr Hughes I mutt congratulate you.—The Clerk remarked it would facilitate matters if the Council would pay attention to the standing orders.

Diet.—Under this bead we will oonsider what is the best Every man or woman must be a law unto themselves as to what to eat, drink, and avoid, The saying, One man's meat is another man's po's n" is very tru-, and the time of year, and the climatic surroundings have much to siy in the matter. In the arctic regions you can eat and relish fats or fat mixtures such as would be fatal to you in the tropics. Why do our countrymen suffer so much from liver complaintP It is beca^sa our insular trait ing in Ü e British Isles has induced a love for Boast beef, spirits and strong beer,, and we indulge in these with one result, liver oomplaint. Wfrd we only rational and adapted our diet to onr surround- ings we would lead healthier, happier lives. Were we to a great extent b shun auimal food we would be healthier. The foregoing obs r-anions lead us to consider why Dr. Tibb!e j' Vi-Uocoa acti so beneficially on the liver. Dr. Tibbies' Vi-Cocoa has in it the four ingredients of a purely vegetable extaction, and while these in combination act most benefioially on the liver, they cannot in any secse of the words be either considered drugs or medicines. They are no'ther mora or lc si than strengthening, nourishing restorative- They give tone and vigour to every organ of the body, while at the same time they build up tho whole constitution in a way tbat has never been done before. This purely vegetable blend not only stimulates the liver to a proper discharge of iti functions, but it builds up its various tissues to the highest pitoh of efficiency. Merit, and merit alone, is what we claim for Dr. Tibbie»' Vi-Cocoa, aid we are prepared to send to any reader -who names the "Flintshire Observer," a dainty sample tin of Dr. Tibbies' Vi-Cocoa free and pot* paid There is no magio In all this.

BAGILLT. Buss BAND CONTESTS.—At the feoond brasi band contit-t in connection with the North Wales Bras3 Band Association teld at Llanerjhiugog Park, near Wrexham, on Monday, in wet weather, the awards werd as follows :-Section ore: 1st, Nantlle Vala, conductor, Mr W. Rimmer; 2ni, Llan Festiniog, Mr T. Valentine; 3rd, Wrexham Borough, Mr George Turtle. Seotion two 1st, Rhop, Mr J. J. Brady 2nd, Llaaddulas, Mr D. Owen. Seotion three let, Bagillt. Mr J. J. Brady; 2nd, Lianfairfeabari, Mr J. Finoh. The challenge shield, a handsome en- graved piece of plate which has been handed t) the Bagillt Band, and which they will hold for the year, ia now on view at Mr Gratton Thomas' Apothecaries Hall. The Rev. D. J. Thomas, M.A., Vice-Principal of the Winohesttr Diocesan Training College, and Hon. Minor Canon of Winchester Cathedral, has been unanimously elected Prinoipal of the Home and Colonial Training College, Gray's Inn Road, London, and of the Highbury Traiciag College for Secoadary Teachers. Toe Home and Colonial Training College is the laigest of all the Training Colleges in England, and the PrinoipalsHip of this College, alone oarries with it a ealary of L600 a ytar. Obviously, this is regarded ai one of the plums of the profession, and there was very keen competition for it. Last September Mr Thomas came seoond for the Principal- ship of Bede Training College, Durham, but his disappointment on that oooasion has evidently been the doorway of his promotion to the Prinoipalship of the largest of our Metropolitan Training College'. It is no small triumph for one who, seven and a half years ago, was the Master of the Bagillt National Schools, to have so rapidly reached the top of bis profes-ion. We most heartily congratulate Principal and Mra Thomas on their good fortune, and we desire to expresi a hope that there is a long and useful career before them, and that God will abundantly bless their labour a. The new Principal will oommenoo his work in London early in September UNIVBBSITY INTELLIGENCE.—Mr O. A. Thomas, headmaster of the National Schools, sucoessfully parsed the final B.A. examination held last week at Trinity College, Dublin. The degrees were oonferred at a meeting of the senate on Friday last. This succes* is the more remarkable, when we reflect that our respectid friend put ia two t rm examinations as recently as January and Easier week last. Mr O. A. Thomas, B.A. Trinity College, Dublin, ba1 tern successively scholar, pupil-teaoher, assistant- teachar, and head-mastar at our National Sohools, and thus being a true fellow-townsman we the more heartily congratulate him upon his latest achievement. Within the comparatively ahort period of eight years all three brothers have beoome graduates of ancient universities, which is no mean reoorl considering the laborious appointments they held while so doing. BATHING FATALITY IN THE DEE. A TREACHEROUS GUTTER. On Friday afternoon last at the Victoria Inn, Walwen road, an inquest was held before Mr Richard Bromley, County Coroner, and a jury, of which Mr Thomas Humphreys was foreman, upon the body of a youth named John William Parry, who, on the previous Wednesday after- noon, was drowned in a gutter in the river Deo, opposite Walwen while bathing. The deceased was in his 14th year and resided with his uncle, Mr Daniel Parry, Victoria row, Walwen. He was engaged by Mr Thomas Davies, Fishpool ] farm, to look after cattle on the marsh. The evidence called included that of Mr Daniel Parry, of Victoria row, uncle of the deceased, who identified the body. About 1.30 on Wednes- day afternoon a messenger came to the Deo Bank Lead Works, and told him his nephew was drowned. He went on to the marsh and saw the deceased's clothes on the bank. There was a crowd of people on the bank. No trace of the deceased could be discovered, but after twenty minutes' search the head of the deceased was seen bobbing up and down in the gutter The body was drawn out of the water. All signs of life were absent, and it was ultimately removed home. Witness was not aware de- ceased was in the habit of bathing he had a strong dislike to water when a child. Had he known of his bathing in the gutter he should have done his best to prevent deceased going to such a dangerous place.-Thoo Ralph Davies* aged 12 years, son of John Davies, Victoria-row, Walwen, said, about half past one witness and Richard Henry Thomas and Edward Simon, went on to the marsh for a walk. They were going to bathe and saw deceased who asked them were they going to bathe. They said they were, and the deceased joined them. Deceased got his clothes off first and went into the water, but whether he dived or fell in he could not say. They saw his feet out of the water and one of the lads called out that Parry was drowning. They got afraid and ran for assistance. They did not again go back to the marsh. The water in the gutter was level with the top at the time and the tide was running out fast. He had frequently bathed with the deceased, but higher up the gutter where the water was shallow.- Richard Henry Thomas, aged 12 years, of Victoria row, one of the three boys who were with the deoeased, said the deceased went into the water first. He saw the deceased in the water and thought he was playing. However, he turned on his back and then they saw his feet turn upwards. Getting afraid, they ran off for assistance, Before running for assistance they dressed themselves. [A Juror observed that the assistance would have come too late, even had the boys run off before dressing]. Witness further said that none of them could swim. He was aware that a person had been drowned in the gutter some years ago, but it was at a spot further down the river.—Edmund Jones, Smith's cottages, said shortly before two o'clock on Wednesday afternoon, the two pre- vious witnesses came to the house and told him that Wm John Parry had been drowned in the gutter. He went to the marsh and having ob- tained a couple of rakes, he with others searched about, and in the course of an hour they saw the crown of deceased's head above the water, The body was floating, as the depth of water would-be over six feet in the swash where it was found. The current flowed very strong at the time. It was evident that the deceased had got out of his depth. The place was dangeroud. He had noticed there was more bathing at that part of late than formerly. The place where the deceased had evidently gone to bathe, dropped straight from the bank for a consider- able depth. The body had been carried some distance down the gutter to what was known as the "iswash."—The Foreman pointed out that the place where the deceased was drowned was highly dangerous, the gutter being deceptive. He thought it would be advisable to recommend that a notice board should be put up warning persons from bathing.—Mr Goodman Edwards was of opinion that the Parish Council might take the matter up, and no doubt permission would be given by Mrs Miohell, of River Bank, to the fixing of a notice board.—The Foreman intimating that he should be pleased to put forward the recommendation of the Coroner's Court before the Parish Council, Mr Edwards made a formal proposition that the Parish Council be recommended to fix a notice board in a conspicious position near the footpath leading to the mardh from the Walwen road. The proposition was seconded and carried, and the Jury returned a verdict of "aocidently drowned whilst bathing."—The two boys who gave evidence were complimented for the in- telligent way in which they made their statements.

Correspondence. [We do not hold ourselves responsible for the opinions ex- pressed by our Correspondents] To the Editor of the Flintshire 06server. DBAB SIB,—I have every reason to believe that a great number of art-lovers in Wales are awaiting with intere3t the realisation of my scheme for art edocation in the Principality, and I am fully oon- vinoed that they have recognized the full-hearedne88 with which I took up the cause. It is, therefore, with positive pain that I have to declare that I am oompell sd t) abandon it, on the simple, but impera- tive ground of health. An attack, some months since, of influenza in a mysterious form, has convinced b)th my medical advisers and myself that I have to reduoe all mental labour to the utmost, and I am positively forbidden to launoh out into any- thing likely to entail mental anxiety, and mental strain, beyond my neoessary work. The further I got into my scheme, the more I felt that every detail would have to be personally superintended for some time to oome. Needless to eay, this would have entailed the very strain that has been so strictly forbidden me. But much of the bitter disappointment which I feel would ba dispelled if I could b3lieve that my scheme would, at no distant period, be tiken up and worked out by others, ai far as practicable, and that my agitation for art in Wales might yet bear frnit. I will, of oonrse, adjudicate and superintend the art seotion at Newport as promised. But I thought it necessary to a-k the Editors of Newspapers in Wales to allow me to explain my position the moment I was SUM there was no escape for me. As for my Bcheme,-I had planued schools of artl and crafts, whera work should be done which was purohaseable by the public. This meant schools that were pre-eminently intended to be self-sapporting when once fairly started. I should thus have opposed the present system of teohnical edaoation on the most vital point. For sach an original experi. ment Wales seems to me admirably suited, because it afforded practically clear ground. Althougb my plan was to make things that belonged to daily life, I did not lose tight of the painter in my forms of tuition. But I intended to evolve him out of the craltsman. It would be futile here to give my programme of tuition in detail, but I am quite prepared to entrust the full scheme, as far as I have thought it out, to anyone nominated by Wales to oarry it out. In the Gorsedd I shall always take a deep interest, and I hope yet to see that interesting and picturesque body without an artistio flaw! I may here just mention that the elaborate Sword of Ceremony for the Gorsadd, upon whioh I am at work, will, unfortanately, not be ready until next year.—I am, yours faithfully, HUBBBT HflBXOXBB.

WHAT AILED THE MAN IN 35. I had just blown out the oandle and orawled into bed. It was at the Lamb Inu, at one of the cathedral cities of England. My room was 34, and presently I heard a man bid the waiter good night, and enter 35, the next room. Ten minutes later, having fallen into a doze, I was startled by a tremendous raoket in 36. The bell downstairs rang an alarm, peal on peal. Jumping from bed I pulled on some clothes and rushed into the hallway. The landlady and two or three servan s had just arrived. Together we entered 36, where we found a big burly man seemingly half ohoked to death. He was purple in the faoe, his eyes were staring and bloodshot, he wheezed and whistled, he went from chair to chair, he ran out into the hallway. I eaw what ailed him. I gave him sal volatile and brandy, opened the window, and made the servants carry away the feather bed. In a little time he was better, hot he wouldn't lie down; be spent the rest of the night in a big easy ohair. "It was that infernal oandle smoke that did it," he gasped. There wai no extinguisher, and I got a whiff that set me going, I have always been subject to it. Sorry to be such a nuisance; I'U do now." There are lots of people like him. Here is another, namely, Mra Eliza Mary Oantle, who lives at 4, Thorngate Buildings, Forton Road, Gosport. She says, "I was taken with shortness of breath, and for over two years I couldn't lie down in bed for fear of being suffocated. Something like a ball used to rise up in my throat and seemed to ohoke me. For years I sat up in bed propped with pillows, and got what sleep I could that way." That was bad—very bad and yet very common. You kpow what it is called, of courge-asthma subbtant:ally the same thing aa epilepsy, catalepsy, hytteria, and that kind of spasms which end in making the body as stiff as though it were three days dead. But what causes it P Can it be cured ? you ask. One thing at a time. Let's first finish with Mrs Cantle's experienoe. The beginning of that lies behind uS-seyen years or mo-August, 1886. She began by feeling weak, nervous, and generally ailing. She had a bad taste in the mouth, poor appetite, headache, heaviness, and a sense of want of warmth and vigour in the stomaoh; and the looking-glass showed her that her skin and eyes were getting of a eiokly yellow oomplexion. By- and-by matters were much worse with her. After taking even simple morso's of food she had pain in the chest amounting to agony. On this, sho says, she beoame afraid to eat. We can well believe it. Then," she aids, I had dreadful attacks of giddiness, specks floated before my eyes so I could scarcely see, and I could stand only by taking hold of the furniture." After this came the terrible time with the asthma —already described. Her letter, dated September 20th, 1893, oonoludes with these words :—"I was now very thin, and so feeble I had to keep in bed for weeks at a time. I was literally starving for want offood, yet didn't dare to touch any thing solid. The doctor who attended me gave me medicines, but they did no good. At last a friend from Fratton told me how she had been benefited by Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup. She brought me a bottle and I began with it. In a few days I felt better than I had for years. My breathing was easy, and I could eat. I kept on with the Syrup and was soon as well as ever. In my opinion this remedy eaved my life. (Signed) Eliza Mary Oantle." Very good. A noble result. Yet very natural, too. Asthma is not a disease of the lungs as some wrongly think, but is caused by the poisons of indigestion and dyspepsia entering the blood and prostrating the nervous system. And as the lungs, like all other organs, are operated by the nerves, they fail when the nerves fail. Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup abolishes the cause, and the effect goes away with it. Don't forget it. If the man in 36 had used the Syrup months before we met at The Lamb," he wouldn't have scared the whole household half out of their wits.

BILIOUSNESS. Not able to Eat for a Week at a time. VICTORIA HOTEL, PLATT BRIDGE, Near WIGAN, Ncv. nthy 1890. GENTLEMEN,—I am happy to inform you that I have received great benefit by using "Gwilym Evans' Bitters," after suffering a long time from Biliousness. I had become very weak, and so nervous that if any one spoke in a loud tone I was much frightened. I have been so bad that I was not able to eat for a week at a time. I tried" GWilym Evans' Quinine Bit- ters," and the first bottle did me a deal of good, so I got another, and am happy to say I am now quite well. I shall always speak well of these" Bitters" to all persons that I know. Yours truly, (Mrs.) BAXTER.
