Then he told me he would have to take the lip off, but I would not consent, and of which I am a proud man to-day. After this I went to the Western Infirmary, and was under a clever skin specialist. I received treatment for 13 weeks, and received a little benefit, and came out and commenced working again at my occupation, but I soon got aa bad as ever I then commenced with 'Clarke's woriu-iamea Blood Mixture,' and after taking five bottles was completely cured.

COUNTY COURT: TUBBDAT.—Before His Honour Sir Horatio Lloyd, Judge; Registrar H. A. Cope, Esq. A FAMILT WILL DISPUTH. Mr F. Llewellyn Jones (Messrs. Bromley and Jones), in making an ex-parte application, said it would be necessary to state the facts. At the Ruthin Court, an aotion would be heard upon the equity side of the Court. In 1897, John Jones, of the Cottage, Llanarmon, died, appointing his son, Wm. Jones, his sole executor. He bequeathed all his personal estate to his sons, Wm. Jones and Edw Jones, and his daughter, Louisa Jones. There was a peculiar clause in the will of the testator, I also appoint my son, Robert Jones, trustee, trusting that he will carefully see that my estate is divided into three equal parts." After the death of the testator, the three benefioiaries under the will agreed to live together at their father's house. They oontinued to do so, the exeoutor doing all the work and managing the farm. A short time ago a dispute took place, and the next thing heard of was that an auctioneer at Mold had taken instructions from the trustee under the will to sell the whole of the stock, furniture, to., on Tuesday next. The executor, who had been accepted as the tenant of the farm, was driven to his present position and had no option than to apply to the Ruthin Court to have the estate administered. In view of that, he (Mr Jones) applied for an order restraining the sale of the deceased John Jones' things. The applioation for the issue of the necessary restraining order was granted on the undertaking that the exeoutor, Wm. Jones, became responsible. SETTLED AND VTIMBAVW. Mr F. Llewellyn Jones mentioned the case of the Earl of Denbigh v. J. V. Lean, adjourned from the last Court. The plaintiff claimed tithe and the defendant counter-claimed. He (Mr Jones) had heard from Mr Churton, of Chester, who had appeared for the plaintiff, that his olient, the plaintiff, bai aocepted the offer made at the last Court, and bad agreed to withdraw the claim. The defendant also agreed to withdraw the counter- claim eaoh party paying their own oosts. THH GBONANT BBAS8 BAND AND THBIB LOAN. This was an aotion brought by Mrs Martha Hughes, of Gronant, to recover from Wm. Thomas, Bandmaster of the Gronant Brans Band, and the members of the Gronant Brass Band, the sum of J62 15.. Od., being balance of money lent.—The plaintiff stated that her late husband, Mr Joseph Hughes, lent the Gronant Brass Band, the sum of £ 25. The members of the Band entered into an agreement to repay the loan by instalments. The repayments had been made with the exception of the balance in respect of which she now claimed.—The defendant said he admitted the Band owed JM 15s. Od. under the old agreement, but there was a new agreement. He was quite wlliing to pay his share of the amount due, but he did not see it fair that the plaintiff should faU upon him when there were fifteen other bandsmen equally liable.-Plaintiff: The instruments have been taken from the old members and lent to the Prestatyn Band.-His Honour: The second agreement does not alter your liability in any way. Proceedings may be taken again It anyone of you, and it is you who are responsible to get the money from the other band amen. -Judgment for the plaintift, for the amount claimed, payment in a month.

WHY is a grain of sand in the eye like a school- master's cane ? Because it hurts the pupil. IT is no great credit to a worm to turn when stepped upon. A barrel hoop will do the same. EVEN a hen that misses a couple of her chicks is not such a beautifully true picture of flurry and worry as a woman looking for her gloves when she is other- wise ready to go out. MR. BBONSON must have failed to pay his bill this week." "Why do you think that ?" "Why, didn't you notice that Mrs. Tomkins gave him the neck of the turkey at dinner?" I WONDER why my head comes out of the water first instead of my feet," said Jones to Thomas, while both were bathing. Well, the lightest always comes up first," said Thomas. THE following essay is from the pen of a schoolboy: Being a doctor is a very good trade. Doctors have most always nice black whiskers at the side, and are toll men. They are also very fierce looking, but they are very useful. Doctors are men who never walk except from a carriage to a house door. Doctors are skinny men, with black eyes and coats. Doctors bring babies to good little boys' houses. I was very good and he brought my mother ours. It is a little girl, and it is called Agnes. The doctor has seen me three times for the purpose, cuz I have headaches. My mother looks at me and cries when he's gone. I never tells mother I have headaches except it hurts me very much. I love my mother. I wish my head was same as other boyses. Yesday I arskt Webster if he ever felt dizzy, and he said no. All boys I ask says no. What the doctor gives me makes me feel worser. But mother likes me take it so I don't mind. I wish I was a man, but I'd rather be a woman like mother. Doctors havent niced houses. There is bottles all round and no washin'. Doctors haven't loud voices like men you hears in the street, but their eyes are brighter. I am not so frightened of doctors as of perlice. When I'm in bed I can't sometimes go to sleep. I can say my money tables best in bed. I dreamed one night that the doctor came up stairs aD in the dark, and took me out of bed, and gave me to a perlice to bury. But I woke up just afore he buried me, and my mother was a-kissin me and cryin. Mother says doctors can cure nearly all things, and that they are kind men. Headaches is not dangerous. MRS. HALLOWELL was a very pretty and amiable widow, but she had a sorrow. She had arrived at that critical period when age shows its marks upon the face, and especially in the frost it sprinkles upon the hair. She resolved to dye the latter, and for that purpose made arrangements with a certain hair- dresser, who, at her request, was to meet her at ten o'clock at night, to avoid observation, and, in the privacy of her own boudoir, restore her hair to a jet black hue. She had agreed to attend a party that night, and of course was anxious to have the hair- dyer prompt. At ten o'clock she was awaiting him, eager for his appearance. The bell rang, but the hairdresser did not present himself before her. She sent down her maid to make inquiries of Matthew Riley, the Irish footman, who also officiated as atten- dant at the door. Who was it rang ?" questioned Charlton, the maid. A blackguard," replied Matthew Riley. Who ?I said Charlton. 11 An impu- dent blackguard," said the footman. Bedad, if it wasn't for fear of the police, I'd tache him better 1" 14 What did he want?" "Want, is it? Want? Sure I'll be after telling ye, as ye're so cunous, for ifs neself asked him the question," replied Riley. U Wen." said Charlton" go on." #- I Well,' says 1, 1 what do you want at this time 09 night, my fine fellow ?' I'll tell your missus,' says he. I Deuce a bit,' says 11 tffl ye've told me first.'

Can a duck swim,' says I. Upon that he came close to me, and says he-But, arrab, you won't belave me!" "Indeed I will," said the maid. 11 1 Well, then,' says he, I come to die hare.' Die hare!' says t. « Yes,' says he. • And whare would you wish to die?' says 1. 4 in your ^missus's room,' says he. So with that I kicked him down the steps." If Then you have done wrong," said Charlton, ready to die with laughing. But, bedad, he came back again just now," continued Riley, "and says again, as pert as may be: f Tell your missus I'm come to die hare. Well, and what did you say ?" inquired Charlton. What did I say ?" exclaimed Matthew. Sure I said what every honest man would What was that ?" "«Be jabers,' says I, ye re nothing but an idiot, and you'll not die hare'. Go somewhere else and die, you scamp of the world Die hare, indeed!' So for the second time I knocked him out, and, bedad, I'm thinking he'll never come here again to diej'l_ —- >
