The Chairman said before the commencement of the business of the meeting, they had a duty to perform which beoame them as a public body. He was sure everyone present regrettes the passing away of Mr Gladstone and they would all agree that the country had suffered an ir- reparable loss, for by his death they had lost the greatest man of this age. Although the loss had been great, yet the world was the richer today, for the memory of the life so nobly spent in the oause of his country and in the oause of the people to whom he was so devoted. He begged to propose, after that slight tribute to his memory, the following resolution-, -That this Council records its deep sense of the loss the nation has sustained by the death of the Eight Hon. W. E. Gladstone, and that we con- vey to Mrs Gladstone and her family our heart- felt sympathy and oondolenoe with them in their sad bereavement," and added that the Glerk be instructed to forward the resolution to Mrs Gladstone.—Mr W. H. Lloyd seconded the proposition, which was carried in silence. THB SMOKE NUISANCE. Replying to Mr Ellwood as to the smoke nuisance from Mr Prinoe's briokworks, the Surveyor stated that the smoke was much less than formerly, and he was informed unofficially, that Mr Prince had adopted patent smoke con- sumers.-A letter was also read from Mr Prinoe in which he stated that he expected he should be able to satisfy the Council in the matter.— On the proposition of Mr Ellwood, seoonded by Mr Lloyd, it was decided by five votes to four, to adjourn the matter for a month. HEALTH COMMITTEE. The above committee elected Dr 0. S. Purdon as chairman of the committee for the ensuing year. Two oases of diphtheria were reported; one came had been removed to Chester Infirmary All necessary precautions had been taken to pre- vent the spread of the disease. PLANS. A number of plans of alterations to existing buildings and of new buildings in contemplation were on the recommendation of the Health Oomittee, passed. HIGHWAY COMMITTEE AND PUBLIC LIGHTING. Mr W. H. Lloyd was elected Chairman of this Committee for the ensuing year. An estimate was received from the Gas Company, for the lighting of the public lamps during the ensuing season, at ii 9s. Sd. per lamp. The Committee recommended the adoption of the estimate.—The Gas Company tendered to provide four new standards and gas lamps, for JE14, provided that the Council would open the ground neessary for the laying of the mains-—-The Council con- firmed the recommendation of the committee to Woept the tender, GENERAL PURPOSES COMMITTTE. Mr O. Ellwood was eleoted Chairman of the above Committee for the ensuing year. The estimates were submitted for Cemetery purposes amounting to X120, a precept for which was recommended to be issued.—The Clerk was re- quested to write to the Local Government Board enquiring whether the collection of the cemetery rate could not be made by the Collector to the Council.—-The recommendations were adopted. FINANCE COMMITTEE. Mr H. Hughes was elected Chairman of the above Committee. The Committee recommended that irreooverable rates to the amount of £10 15s. be allowed on account of poverty. It was stated that the cost of the recent arbitration on the drainage expenses was L71 18s. Od. and that it was the duty of the Holywell Rural Oounoil to take up the award on payment of the fees. ADOPTION OF THE NOTIFICATION OF DISEASES ACT. Mr W. H. Lloyd, in accordance with notice given, moved that the Council adopt the Infeotious Diseases Notification Act, 1889, and he pointed out the necessity there was for the adoption of the Act in the interest of the public health. Owing to the rapid advance of the town, it was essential that the authority should proteot the health of the town, and the beat means to that end was by the adoption of this particular Aot. The expense that the adoption of the Act would naturally entail, would be amply compensated by the advantage of arresting an epidemic at its inception, whereas, under the present arrangements an epidemic might be raging in the town befor thee Council as a sanitary authority would become aware of it.—Mr H. Hughes, in seoonding the resolution said the adoption of the act should not be barred on a question of expense, but adopted in the interest of human life.—Mr Edward Blane, in supporting the resolution, said it was the third time of asking for the adoption of the act. It was not on account of any want of appreciation of the value of the aot, but that the time was not opportune for the adoption of the aot, that the Council had hitherto rejected it. The Council was now well advanced in the know- ledge of its affairs, and it was now possible to adopt the act-in fact, it was their duty to protect human life, and as a sanitary authority their work was the preservation of the health of the distriot. On those grounds he supported the resolution.—Mr Ellwood asked was it not necessary to rescind the previous motion before passing the present one.—The Chairman said the previous motion was rejected by the Oounoil, consequently there was no resolution on the books to require rescinding.—Mr John Hughes opposed the resolution, and was making some remarks upon the notifying of diseases, and the fees for the same paid to medical practitioners, when. Dr. Kirkpatriok interposed with an explanation.—Mr John Hughes: That man has never been before the electors of this constitu- ency, and therefore he is not entitled to take part in the debates of this Oounoil. Whatever he has to say, should, in my opinion, be submitted in writing. Instead of that, he attends the meetings and takes patt in the debates, and, in fact, seems to have more authority than the members of this Council.- The Chairman: The debate is, Notification Act or not. Kindly stick to the question.—Mr J. Hughes: I move that we do not adopt the aot. —The Chairman That is the same as before; it is not necessary. Vote against it if you like. —Dr. Purdon said he should not vote either way, lest it might appear he did so from personal motives. At the same time, he pointed out the advantages of the act in enabling an authority to arrest an epidemio ia its initial stages, and to trace its source.—The Chairman also strongly advocated its adoption.—The resolution was carried by five votes to four, and it was decided that iho o6 oomo into operation on the 1st of August next.—Dr. Kirkpatriok, at the close of the meeting, expressed his regret that the ex- planation he had desired to make had beeu received in such a spirit. RAILWAY FACILITIES. Mr W. H. Lloyd drew attention to the railway facilities for the travelling public to and from Connah's Quay, up and down the line. It was decided to petition the Railway Company for the stoppage of trains between ten and twelve o'olook in the morning, and between half-past one and four o'olook in the afternoon. It was decided to petition for additional warehouse accommodation, goods siding and crane, at the Oonnah's Quay Station. This motion was oarried on the initiation of Mr E. Blane, seoonded by Mr Ellwood. RAILWAY OBSTRUCTION. A petition was received from ratepayers at Wepre, complaining of the obstruction of the footpath over the embankment by the Railway Company, and requesting that the Council would take steps to have the same re-opened to the public.—The matter was after eome dis- cussion, referred to the Highway Committee for investigation.

kr —* EXTRAORDINARY SUCCESS IN THE TREATMENT OF OBESITY. our oorpulent readers will be glad to learn how to positively lose two stone in about a month, with the greatest possible benefit in health, strength, and muscle, by a oomparitively new system. It is a singular paradox that the patient, returning quickly to a healthy state, with increased aotivity of brain, digestive, and other organs, naturally requites more food than hitherto; yet, notwithstanding this, he absolutely loses in weight one or two pounds daily, as the weighing maohiae will prove. Thus, there is no suggestion of starvation. It is an undoubted success, and the author, who ha3 devoted years of study to the subjeot, guarantees a noticeable reduc- tion within twenty-four hours of commencing the treatment. This is different with other diseases, for the patient, in some cases, may go for weeks without being able to test whether the physician has rightly treated him, and may have derived no real or apparent improvement in health. Here, we repeat, the author guarantees it in twenty-four hours, the scale to be the unerriog recorder. The treatment aims at the actual root of obesity, so that the superfluous fat does not return when dis- continuing the treatment. It is perfeotly harmless. We advise our readers to call the attention of stout friends to this, because, sinoerely, we think they ought to know. For their information we may say that on sending two penny stamps a Vojk entitled Corpulency and the Cure (266 pages), containing a reprint of Press notices from some hundreds of medical and other journals—British and foreign- and other interesting particulars, including the "recipe," can be had (post free) from Mr F.

OAERWYS. DEA.TH OF MR T. R. WILLIAMS, VETERINARY SURGEON. It was with wide-spread and general regret that the news was received of the death which took place on Saturday nighi of Mr Thos. R. Williams, veterinary surgeon, Oaerwys. The deceased gentleman was 44 years of age, and was the third son of the late Mr Robt. Williams, Tyddyn Uoha, Whitford. He was educated at the Holywell Grammar Sohool, under the late Mr W. T. Cole, afterwards serving his appren- ticeship under Mr Edwards, veterinary surgeon, Abergele. Proceeding to Edinburgh, he went through the University ooursa of training, and ultimately was made a member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, London. Afler acting as assistant to the late Mr John Edwards, Oaerwys, he sucoeeded to the praotice, which for many years he has carried on with much success, his reputation as a veterinary surgeon being well-known. His kindly nature and genial disposition made for him a large circle of friends and acquaintances, to whom his death will come as a severe blow. For some years Mr Williams has held the position of veterinary surgeon to the Denbighshire and Flintshire Agricultural Society. The ailment from which the deceased gentleman suffered and died, was one from which there was no hope of recovery. Following upon an illness some twelve months ago, diabates set in, and some short while baok he consulted Dr. Carter, of Liverpool, He oontinued attending to the duties of his praotice until Tuesday in last week. when he became much worse. He was attended by Dr. Lloyd, of St. Asaph, and Dr. Lloyd, of Denbigh: About noon on Saturday a relapse ensued and death took place about ten o'clock the same night. Much sympathy is felt towards his mother, Mrs Williams, and family. The funeral which was of a public character took phoe at Oaerwys Churchyard this (Thursday) afternoon. PETTY SESSIONS: TUESDAY-Before Messrs Wm. Thomas (in the chair), J. Lloyd-Prioe, and T. J. D. Jones. A LLOOITE IN HIS TAMPER. Wm. Parry, of Lloc, was charged for having on Monday, the 30th ult., been drunk in the Fox and Hounds Inn, CAerwys, and assaulting Police-constable Thomas Jones whilst in the execution of his duty.—-Mrs Sarah Evans, the proprietress of the inn, said defendant went into her house between three and four o'olook in the afternoon. She was busy serving an anniversary di nner at the time, but in conse- quence of a communication from her servant, she went to the defendant, who was noisy and quarrelsome, and asked him to leave the house. She took his beer from him and returned him the three-half-penoe he had paid for it. He refused to leave and she sent for the police. Constable Jones arrived and asked defendant to go out quietly, but he deolined to do so and had to be put out by force. Defendant broke some glasses and upset five or six glasses of beer. The police offioer said that the prisoner was in the kitchen of the inn creating a disturbance when he arrived. There were broken glasses on the floor. Mrs Evans asked defendant several times to leave the house quietly, but he refused and defied the police to turn him out. On being forcibly ejected he tripped up the witness and knooked one of his teeth out. He kioked most violently, but with assistance he was eventually looked up.—Defendant, who h%d nothing to say for himself was sentenoed to one calendar month's imprisonment with hard labour for the assault on tne polioe, the case for refusing to quit not being adjudicated upon. FINANCIAL EDUCATION. John Jones, of Tyddyn, Oaerwys, who did not appear was at the instance of Mr J. H. Savage, Attendance Offioer of the Holywell Union, fined 2s. 6d. for aot sending one of his ohildren to sohool. BACK TO THE OLD COUNTRY. The license of the Drover's Arms, Oaerwys, was temporarily transferred to Mr Edw. Price, a native of Tremeirchion, but who for many years has been a gamekeeper in Radnorshire. AN ACTOR IN HOT WATER. Arthur E. Ooe, of Her Majesty's Theatre, Haymarket, London, was summoned by James Ryan, water bailiff to the Olwyd and Elwy Board of Conservators, for having on Good Friday last, fished for trout at Pontruffydd, without having a proper license.—Mr Williams (Messrs Gamlin and Williams, Rhyl), appeared for the Conservators, and Mr Aneurin Evans Denbigh, for the defendant. The latter at once pleaded guilty and explained that the defendant was a gentleman in a high position in London, and through the interest of a lady occupying a high position in Flintshire, obtained a permission to fish at Pontruffydd from Colonel Mesham. The permit was headed This permit will not allow fishing for salmon without a lioense," and the defendant very properly inferred from that that no lioense was neoessary for trout fishing. Immediately his attention was called to the matter by the bailiff he desisted fishing, and as it was Good Friday he could not obtain a short term license, which, it was explained, would cost 2s.-—Mr Williams applied for advocate's fee on this hearing and at a previous adjourn- ment.—The Benoh, after retiring, were satisfied that the offence was unintentional, and imposed the lowest penalty, 4s. double the license fee; 10s. the bailiff's costs, £ 2 2a. Od. advocate's fee, and lis. 6d. court fees, making a total of X3 7s. 6d. THE DEAD PIGS AND THEIR AILMENT. Deputy Ohief Constable Hughes, as inspector under the Contagious Diseases (Animals) Aot, summoned Mr Wright who resides at Nanneroh, for that he between the 1st of April and the 4th of May last, having then in his possession ten pigs affected with, or suspected of swine fever, did not with all practicable speed, give notice thereof to a police constable, in con- travention of the Swine Fever Order of 1894, and pursuant to the Board of Agriculture Act, 1889, and the Contagious Diseases Animals Acts -Mr F. LI. Jones, solioitor, Holywell, (Messrs Bromley and Jones), appeared to prosecute.- Deputy Chief Constable Hughes said that he went to Penbedw on the 4th of May last, in company with an inspector of the Board of Agriculture, who gave witness authority in writing to exhume some pigs which had been buried there. A sow, a boar, and one small pig were exhumed. The late Mr T R. Williams, veterinary surgeon, was present, and made a post-mortem examination of the animals. Witness saw defendant the same day, and he said that the first animal to die was the sow; then six small pigs about four weeks old; then three small pigs, and after that the boar; all within a month. On the 9 th of May witness acoompanied the inspector again. One pig had died the previous day. The Veterinary Surgeon made a post-mortem examination of that animal also. His oertifioate deolaring that all the animals had died from swine fever was handed in.—Mr Wright (who was not defended), said that the sow which first died was a weakly one, and he considered that she had died in littering. The deaths of the little pigs he supposed was caused by want of untrition through the death of the mother, but when the boar died, and he learned that other pigs were ill, he at onoe, of his own accord, gave information to Police- oonsteble James at Nannerch, which led to the visits of Mr Hughes and the Inspector of the Board of Agriculture. -The Benoh, having retiredfor a short time, the Chairman intimated that they appreciated the defendant s explana- tion, and they therefore fined him 5s. only, with f,5 5s. 9d. oosts, inoluding the veterinary surgeon's and abvooate's feea.
MOSTYN. PULPIT ALLUSIONS TO Ms. GLADSTONE. o. Sunday evening, the Rev Stephen Jonee, vicar of Rhosesmor, oocupiel the pulpit at the Parish Church aud in the oour-e of bis sermon made %,very touching allusion to the distinguishel departed Statesman.— In the evening, the Vioar (Oaaon Jones), preaching at Lady Augaeta Mostyn's School Chapel, in re- ferring to the death of Mr Glail-tine, he said The great statesman for whom the whole nation is mounrning to-day, and not our nation only, but other countries also have been moved to sympathy and deep appreciation of his woaderful tilents and intellect. Light has come to him at last, after months of weary waiting, and a glorious light it has been, you may be sure, for one of his deep piety and religious feuliogs. A life euoh as this leaves many les4ons behind it, and I dare siy many of you have noticed the various tributes paid to his memory in the Housej of Parliament by men of different politioal views, but all leaders of high position and attainments, eaah one you will notice has discovered some one particular trait in his character which com- mended itself especially to him, but all agreed on one point, that of hia real personal Christianity whioh enabled him at all times to do his duty ai a citizen, a statesman, and a man. I wish to point to one feature of his home life when living as our neighbour here in Flintshire. Every day, (not every Sunday, mind), but every day, his corner in his Parish Church was oacupied when the prayers were being said there. This greatest of all statesmen that ever lived, left his litarary pursuits and his politiaal speeches, and whatever else might be oooupyiag his mighty mind, aid went regularly, not when he had nothing else to do, to join in the service of his Maker, when perhaps but two or three would be met together. What a lesson here for many of ns, and what was tin result P God has said "Them that honor Me, I will honor," and so honors have fallen upon him, and to-day a whole nation is beat npon his memory being honored as only the greatest and nibleit in our land are erer honored, his remains are to lie with England's noblest sens. Perhaps you will say that regular attendance at service does not make a man a Christian of necessity, of course it does not, but these means of grace must be valued and made use of if the evening time of our life is to be light, as it way, in the oasi of Mr Gladstone. What is the account we have of his last hours? When rambling in unconscious delirium? Was it snatches of a debate ea 'Home Rale,' 'Disestablishment,' or any of the engrossing topios of his day that his d,)otor could catch from his incoherent speech ? No, we read He is praying,' aad another time the words of his favourite hymn are on his lips, Pra.ise to the H'>lieit.' Then in his quiet bed chamber he lay in close communion with that God whom he had served so faithfully, and whose rod and staff were his ooaafort in the valley and the shadow of death.
MOLD. SHOCKING FATALITY TO A MOLD YOUTil.-Shortly after 10 o'clock on Saturday morning last, Fred. Roberts, aged 29, the second son of Mr John Roberts of Pant Cottage, sustained au aooident which has unfortunately been attended with fatal results. It appears that the young man was engaged paintiog on the roofs of the houses known as Cambrian Villas, the property of his uncle (Mr Riohard Roberts, builder), when one rung of the ladder on which he was standing gave way. The unfortunate youth fell to the ground, and though he never really lost oonsoiousness, it was speedily apparent from his impotency that his injuries were of a severe nature. He was conveyed home in a helpless condition, and though medical aseistance was seoured it was unavailing, the primary injury being one affecting the spinal oolumn. He lingered through the night, and passed peacefully away about 1.30 on Snnday afternoon. The utmost sympathy is expressed for the bereaved paranh and other relatives of the deceased, who are quite inconsolable in their sore affliotiou. On Tuesday afternoon Mr Richard Bromley, coroner, held an inquest on the body of the deceased at the County Hall. After hearing medical and other evidence, the jury returned a vardiot of Accidental death." PECULIAR CLAIM IN A COUNTY COURT. At Chester County Court, on Thursday, before his Honoui Judge Sir Huratio Lloyd amd a jury, an action ramitted from tha High Court was heard, in which Louisa Price, wife of John Prise, residing at Entyn Grange, Hope, near Mold, sought to recover £ 1,090 damages from Riohard Collins, of the same address, for injuries she reoeived in defendant's house. Mr Jorrton, barrister, Manchester, appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr W. H. Ohurton defended. Mr Jordon stated that Mr and Mrs Price oooupied a house adjoining that of the defendant, who was an old gentleman of eccentric ways who bad an invalid son. Defendant would have no lights in his house for for o! fire, and the only light in the rooms was that from the fire. On the 8th January last year Mrs Price was oalled in by the defendant ear:y in the morning as his daughter, who nursed his invalid son, had been taken very i!l. Mrs Price accordingly went to the house and nursed the girl during the day. In crossing the i .tiding of the darkened bouse Mrs Price missed her footing, and fell downstairs, sustaining serious injuries, for which she held the defendant responsible, as he bad cegleoted to have the place lighted. She bad asked defendaut for a light, but he did not give her one. As a result of the acoident she was confined to bed for a consider- able time, and was now able to walfc only by the aid of a crutch. The doctor, moreover, bad told her that she would be partially disabled for some time t) come. Some correspondence passed between plaintiff and the defendant, and the latter sent her a claim for S15 rent, which was not then due. Evidence wai given by the plaintiff, who said she bad paid JE22 for a doctor's attendance, and was still owing £ 12 10s. She had also had a nur,c for fourteen weeks and paid her 6j. a week. In cross-exaaoination by Mr Churton she admitted, on being pressed, that she had paid nothing to the nurse, but had offered her the amount stated. She never had anything the matter with her leg or hr head before. She had allowed nine months tJ elapse before she made the present claim. She had not done so because she had raoeived notice from the defendant to quit her house Further evidenoe was given by plaintiff's husband, Mr A. S. Whalley, surveyor, and Dr. George, the latter of whom said defendant suffered from inflammation of the knee in consequence of the accident. Mr Churton for the defendant, contended that the only point he had ta meet was that in regard to the light, and so far as its absence was concerned defendant could not be held legally liable for damages. He submitted that thera was contributory negligence on the part of the plaintiff. Mr Jordon admitted that if that was so the case must fall through. His Honour put it to the jury whether they were satisfied that there was no negligence on the part of the defendant and if they thought there was contributory negligence on the part of the plaintiff, who knew the house and did not procure a candle. The jury found that there was no negligence on the part of the defendant, and the judge entered judgment for the defendant with ooats.

I ALREADY FEEL 20 PER CENT. BETTER. 12, HANOVHR SQUARE, BRADFORD, Jan. yth, 1892. CENTLEMEN,—I am thankful for the bottle or "Gwllym Evans' Bitters" you sent me by your Bradford representative. I have only taken a few good strong doses, and I already feel 20 per cent, better, but having suf- fered from Ague for some months in India I do not expect it to work wonders at once. To-day, while dining in the town, two of my friends remarked that I was looking much better. I told them that the cause of it was my taking your Quinine Bitters," when a gentleman sitting opposite asked me the name of it. I was very pleased to tell him, and also where he could get it in Bradford. He has been suffering from Indigestion, and I hope Gwilym Evans' Bitters will do him as much good as it has done to me. With every wish for their success, I IUD, Gentlemen, Yours faithfully, J. C. K, THQMASk

IT is bad reasoning which builds up a theory of life on the narrow ledge of a passing human mood, and fails to take in the whole round of life. HUMILITY is the first lesson we learn from reflection and self-distrust the first proof we give of having obtained a knowledge of ourselves. g THosB who attain any THOSE who attain any excellence commonly spend their whole life in one pursuit; for excellence is not often gained on easier terms.
