+» THB residual good latent in coal-tar is almost fabulous. Coal-tar ia now a good substitute for quinine in typhus and intermittent fever; it is also a remedy for rheumatism. But what would the trade say to a good tea infused from coal-tar ? A German chemiat recently told his class that this is possible. When tea has been distilled from the bye- products of a gas retort the chemist will perforce succeed in making coffee, and possibly snuff and tobacoo generally. TIm Swedish peasantry explain the lunar spots as representing a boy and girl bearing a pail of water between them,\whom the moon once caught up in her horns, and carried of finto the heavens; a legend current also in Icelandic mythology. A German tale says that a man and a woman stand in the moon, the man because he strewed briars one Sunday morning ia the ehurch-path, the woman for making butter on .the same day. The Dutch have it that the unhappy man was caught stealing vegetables. The natives of Ceylon have a hare, instead of a man, in the moon, the hare having achieved that high honour by jumping into a fire to roast himself for the benefit of Buddah. The Chinese represent the moon by a rabbit pounding rice in a mortar. Their mytho- logical moon is figured by a beautiful young woman, with a double sphere behind her head, and a rabbit at her feet. An Australian legend says the moon was a native oat, who fell in love with someone else's wife, and was driven away to wander ever since. Among the Esquimaux the sun is a maiden and the moon is her brother; and the Khasias of the Himalaya say that the moon falls every month in love with his mother-in-law, who throws ashes in his face, whence his spots. The Malays believe that the moon is a woman, and the stars are her children. TWO O'CLOCK OF THB MOKNING" COURAGIL-)Ir. Brassey was gifted with much presence of mind. The first Napoleon used to say of himself that few men were his equals in what he was wont to call "two o'clock of the morning" courage, which is in fact preasnce of mind on the announcement of unexpected danger and difficulty. Mr. Brassey was fortunate enough to possess this two o'clock in the morning" courage in a high degree. If called up suddenly in the middle of the night upon some urgent peril or difficulty, he met the alarm with perfect coolness; sat down to consider and calculate what was the best mode of obviating the danger (danger seemed to stimulate his faculties, and not to over. power them); and, before the break of day, when he had to proceed to the scene of action, was ready with his plan. It may be easily imagined what oonMence this presence of mind on the part of their employer infused into his principal agents and all those who were employed under him. Mr. Brassey had a perfect hatred of contention. This quality of mind was second only to his trustfulness, the main element ef his success. It was soon discovered by anyone who had dealings with him that, should any matter of controversy arise, he would not only refuse to take any questionable advantage over the other side, but would rather even submit to be taken ad- vantage of. Now, there is not a more fruitful virtue in the world than this kind of generosity. It is nearly sure to elicit a kindred response. In most in. stances where over-reaching is begun or continued it derives its strength from contentiousness.—^4!^ oj Thomas Brassey," by Sir Arthur Helps. TBOUBUS OF AN ENTBETAINEB.—I remember the difficulties of performing "Ages Ago" inl Clifton so weD. There was no dressing rooms in those days in the Small Hall of the Victoria Rooms. We had to go quite early, clamber on the platform with the aid of chairs, and dress behind the scenes as best we might. "Ages Ago" was a piece involving very quick changes of costume; how we did it I don't know I Then the boards of the platform were not allowed to'touch the walls by some three or four inches, and various small but necessary articles of apparel tumbled down between the boards and the wall, and had to be fished up from a dust-covered depth of three feet with a hooked stick. But things are- changed for the better now. Local authorities and proprietors have at length come to me conclu- sion that there are actors, singers, and entertainers who are used to some of the amenities of civilised life. They have at length grasped the fact that a zinc pail is not the pleasantest form of washing basin. I mention one seaside resort where we dressed in a small room off the taproom of a public house, where there was a bagatelle board. A very drunken fre. quenter of the taproom insisted on trying to come in and play bagatelle, and finding his efforts hopeless, revenged himself by abusing at us horribly through the keyhole. It is only about three years since a fashionable inland watering-place possessed no better room for entertainment than a hastily erected drill. shed. When our men arrived to put up the fit-up « for our performance they found the stage in posses- sion of one old hen, trying to pick up an honest living on the boards. The ladies had to dress in the gunroom, where there was an overpowering and sickening smell of Rangoon oil; we men dressed in a sort of outhouse where pigeons were kept, and look- ing on to the dustbin of the caretaker. The caretaker's wife had been boiling greens for dinner; I Bay no more. At Bournemouth some years ago we gave the entertainment in a riding schooL The men's dressing rooms were across the courtyard, I 1ras dressed as a stage parish beadle, artificially fattened (it was years ago !), and with a portentous red bulbous nose. In this costume, and by daylight, I had to run the gauntlet of all the grooms and stable helps. I have dressed in vestries of disused Methodist chapels, is made-up on the remains of the pulpit; dressed also in a cellar with an inch or two of water here and there on the Boor; andjat Dover, years ago, our dressing room was not a room, but a space of some six square feet, separated from the front row of stalls only by a thin piece of green baize. But things have improved so much now-a-days, and phiah and velvet reign in place of dirt and squalor, -a. CONug Grain, in Murray's Magaeine. A PAiNrui, PICTURB.-We might be tempted to condemn with the utmost severity such shameful dis. orders if we did not bear in mind the disastrous cir- cumstances amidst which Louis XV. was placed—an orphan from his cradle, a king when only five years old, trained by men who aimed rather at gaining 0ver him a personal inBuence than at forming his character and his morals, surrounded by a Court which, after the somewhat artificial austerity of the last years of Louis XIV., had given itself up during the Regency to every kind of, debauchery, married very young, and in some manner without his consent, to a princess older than himself, he was, besides, exposed to the most irresistible seductions. Religion still kept him in check, so, with the view of stifling his remaining scruples, the Duke de Richelieu, than whom no courier was more corrupt and more corrupting, was obliged, so they say, to encourage him to excesses of the table. He selected as an accomplice for that pur- pose Madame de Mailly as being capable of not frightening, either by too much boldness or by too much shyness, a prince still timid. Louis XV. (and this must be said to his credit) blushed at the bottom of his heart when he thought of the example he set to his kingdom. A very curious journal of hia illness at Metz tells us that in the crisis of his danger, and notwithstanding the dread he had of death, he declared that he did not wish to recover, ac- knowledging that he had badly governed his subjects and fgarine that he could not do better afterwards.

BRY.NFORD. PARISH COUNCIL MEETING. The monthly meeting of this Council was held at the National Sohool, on Tuesday evening, when there were present—Messrs SI. Jones (chairman), Riohard Jones, Ll. Jones, Benj. Price, Jos. Parry, Robert Jones, Robt. Davies.—Cleik, Mr John Maraden. PAT KENT OF JUBOBS. The Holywell Parish Counoil forwarded a copy of a petition to the County Council relative to the payment of Coronet's Jurors, requesting the adoption of the same. The Chairman said he con- sidered that such a resolution should receive the approval of every Parish Connoil. It was only a just and fair movement, and one that should in the interests of working men be granted.-Mr Llewelyn Jones moved the adoption of the petition, which was seoonded by Mr Edwin Jones.—Mr Robert Jones in supporting the adoption of the petition, con- sidered that at the same time they should make a presentment that longer notice should be given in the summoning of jurors.—The Chairman thought that was a suggestion which could scarcely be adopted, as the summoning of the jurors was a matter more in the bands of the Coroner and police that the County Counoil. It could however be taken aa a separate resolution.—Mr J. Parry spoke of the inconvenience experienced owing to having been summoned upon a Coroner's jury at a moment's notioe.-On the proposition of Mr Robt. Jones, seoonded by Mr Robt. Davies, it was resolved to request the County Coroner, to so far as he was able in the event of an inquest to afford the greatest space of time possible in the summoning of the jurors. THE MAINTKNANOH OF THB PUBLIC WELLS. Intimation was received from the Holywell Rural District Council that a resolution had been passed that from the 25th of Maroh next eaoh Parish Council would be required to undertake the repair and maintenance of all publio wells in their respective parishes.—The Chairman Baid he had seen Mr Lester Smith, agent to the Duke of Westminster, and had spoken to him with respect to the wells on the Brynford Mountain. Mr Smith gave him to understand that it was not the intention of the Halkyn Castle Estates to repair any of the wells in the pariah. As the wells were in the hands of the local authorities it would be for them to undertake their repair end maintenance. The Ohairman, continuing, said there were several wells requiring attention and protection, particularly the Penyball well, which was badly in need of protection.—It was stated that the well referred to was of great depth and bad at least twelve feet of water in it.— The Chairman suggested that application be made to the Holywell Rural Council for permission to take the Brynford wells in band forthwith.—The Clerk replied that the Rural Distriot Council had acme time ago transferred the wells to the Parish Council—Mr Edwin Jones suggested that a committee be appointed to report upon the wells, as to which required the more immediate attention. It was considered that a certain number of wells in different parts of the district sheuld receive attention. Naid y march, Penyball, Pwllolai, Dolphin, and Milwr wells were speoially mentioned.—Mr Robert Davits suggested that a oommittee be appointed to inspect and report upon the wells. He pointed out that it was necessary that the new members should be acquainted with the wells.-It was deoided on the suggestion of the Clerk that twosub-oommit tees be appointed to inspect and report on the wells. For the wells on the Penyball side Messrs Benjamin Price, James Parry and Robert Davies were appointed for the Milwr aide Messrs Robert Jones, Riohard Jones and Llew. Jones were appointed, and the committees having agreed to prepare their reports, a special meeting was convened for Thursday next. THE COUNCIL MEETINGS. Mr Llewelyn Jones submitted a motion that in view of the small amount of work required t > be done by the Council, that the meetings henceforth be held every two months.—Mr Richard Jones seoonded the propoaition, which was carried. THE ESTIMATE. The Clerk submitted an estimate of the require- ments for the ourrent year Cleaning room, &o., 30s; postages, 10a leturning officer's charges, ti lis 3d; printing, books, &o., L2 10s Cd.—total, JM Cs. 3d. There waa a balance in hand of 13s. It was pointed out that upon the Committees submitting the estimates of the cost of the repair of the wells, the Counoil could deoide upon what amount was actually required. It was considered that in view of the Council meetings being held every two months an effort should be made to obtain a reduction of the cost of cleaning, light, and fire for the year.—Mr Benjamin erioe gave notice of motion to rescind the resolution regarding the amouna paid for the cleaning, &o., of the Council-room, and to re-fix the payment.
MOLD. DEATH OF MR. J. P. ADAMS. MEMORIAL SERVICE AT THE PARISH CHURCH. On Sunday morning last, the service at the Parish Church bora speoial reference to the death of Mr J P Adams, who since June, 1898, had occupied the position of organist and ohoirmaster of the Church. The congregation present was unusually large, and it is but natural that the thoughts ot all present were lumea buwarua Tne aorrowiiu event ot the previous week. The pulpit was ocoupied by the Vicar (the Rev J P Poole-Hughes) who from the text 1 must work the works of Him that sent me, while it is day the night cometh when no man can work," preached a thoughtful discourse. The main lesson he deduced from the text was the example set to the Christian by Christ an a worker. Referring to the sudden death of Mr Adams, the late organist and oboirmaiter on the previous Sunday morning, he said-It was in his work as organist and ohoir- master I knew him beet, here our lines crosed fre- quently. It is of bia work I am best qualified to speak. Others, better equipped than myself, both with natural gifts and by training, have testified to his ability ana geuiua as a musician. I have but to bear a giateful record to the eathuaiasm and de- ration he displayed in hia work since the day I was called to the vicariate of this parish. I reoolleet the ardour with which he trained his choir for the rendering of Stainer'a I I Cruoiflxion I I and the oare he took to iuatil reverence into that rendering. He oarried a like devotion into the common round of choir praotices. His untiring efforts with the jauior members of the choir will be gratefully re- membered by them in future years. A higher tribute cannot be paid to any man's work than to say that he applied himself with equal devotion to the drudgery ot the work as to bis greater achieve- ments. In conclusion, the ter. gentlemen said, I shall always think of him as a valuable fellow- worker and as one who was taken from us in the midst of a work of increasing usefulness and efficiency. The hymna aeleoted for the ssrrice were On the Reeurreotiou morning, 0 let him whose sorrow," and Now the labourer's task is o'er." Mr E C Davies, a cative of Mold, and now honorary organist of St. Jude's Church, Ardwiok street, Liverpool, presided at the organ in a highly satisfactory manner. At the olosc of the service Mr Daviea p ayed the" Dead March" in Saul, and as the congregation left the Church he played Chopin's "Funeral March" and "The Processional to Calvary," (Stainer's Crucifixion).

HOLYWELL SCHOOL BOARD. The monthly mooting of the above Board was hald on Tuesday last, when there were present—Messrs E. Bryan (ohairman), Joseph Jones, Robt. Foulkes, Thomas Jones, S. Jones, H. V. Lloyd olerk-H, W. H. Roberts. SPBOUL AUDIT. The Board applied to the Local Government Board that a speoial audit be held of the acoounts up to the 29th March, 1898, to enable the Board to know their exact financial position. The reply recened Wat to the effeot that the grounds of the application were not such as oalled for a special audit, and the Board could not aooede to the request. APPONMONRE OF ASSISTANT KASTBBS. Applications having been received by the School Management Committee for the appointments as assistant masters at the Halkyn-street, and Bagillt Boys' Board Sohoola, Mr W. B. Lloyd, of King's College, Strand, London, and Mr O. Jones, Abertlllery, were seleoted at a salary of *70 per annum. Mr Lloyd accepted the appointment and asked to be stationed at the Halkyu-streat Schools. Mr O. Jonei could not accept the appointment at 70 as he already got 75 per annum. The Com- mittee offered 76, but it was declined, and the Clerk was desired to communioate with other applioants. GOODS. The Sohool Management Oommittee had requested tenders from the looal stationers for the supply of sohool requisitei. The stationers agreed to supply them at trade prices. The Committee aooepted the tender of Messrs E. J. Arnold and Son, Leeds, for the requisites for the schools. The action of the' Committee was oonflrmed. THB BVKKXNQ COMTOTUATIOIT SOHOOL. It was stated that the grant received in respeot of the Evening Continuation Sohool, at Bagillt, eon- ducted during the past winter by Mr W. M. James, amounted to 129 15a. Od. The fees, ko., were j65 9s. 5d., and the expenses, £8 6s. gd., leaving to the oredit of the Board the sum of A26 17s. 8d.—Mr S. Jones said he was pleased that the evening con- tinuation school at Bagillt had turned out so successfully, and he should be pleaeed to see a elaaa formed at the Holywell schools. He proposed that the headmaster of the Halkyn-street eohools be asked to form an evening continuation sohool next winter.—Mr Thomas Jones seconded the proposition, which was supported by Mr Robert Foulkes, who regretted that Mr T. Humphreys was not present, as he should have been pleased to congratulate him upon the aucoess of the sohool, which it was very evident had been appreoiated. It was deoided that the matter be considered at a meeting of teaohers. OBNTBAL OLASSBS FOB TBAOHBM. Some disoussion ensued upon a motion that the head teaohers form central olasees for the benefit of the pupil teaohers. It was ultimately decided to oonvene a meeting of the head teaehers and Board members to consider a scheme for the formation of the classes. THB SCHOOLS. The reports of the schools showed that there were 716 ohildren on the sohool registers, being an inoreaee of 26 during the month. THB SUBOHABQBS.

The land is luxuriously divided by the hand of nature and art, into pastor and tillage, into plain and deklivity, into stem abruptness and the dalUanao ov moss-tufted medder; streams of sparkling gladness (thiok with trout) danse through this wilderness of buty, tew the low musik ov the krioket and grass- hopper. The evergreen:sighs az the evening zephir flits through its shadowy buzzum, and the aspen trembles like the love-smitten harte of a damsell. Fruits of the tropicks, is golden buty, melt on the bows, and the bees go heavy aad sweet from the fields to their gathering hives. The stables are worthy of the steeds ov Nimrod or the studs of Akilles, and the henery was bilt expressly for the birds ov paradice; while somber in the distanoe, like the cave ov a hermit, glimpses are caught ov the dorghouse. Here poets have come and warbled their laze, here sculptors have cut, here painters have robbed the scene ov dreamy landskapes, and here the philosopher diskovered the stun, which made him the alkimist ovnatur.

To Lewton (Maine) Journal has discovered how Caleb weighed his wife, and thus reveals it: She is a woman weighing, it is supposed, about 250 pounds, but her husband could not induce her to be weighed. So the other day he was driving out with his wife, and drove up to Mr. Dorman's store in Auburn. The wife did not notice that the team stood on Mr. Dor- man's hay scales. While he was talking with a gentleman at the door, bis whole team was being weighed. He then drove over to Lisbon-street ana left his wife to do some shopping. Then he drove back to Mr. Dorman's hay scales and the team was weighed-minus the wife. It was but a simple sum in subtraction to discover the weight of the woman. On getting home the joke leaked out, but his neigh- bours declare that Caleb will never see another day of judgment in which he will be more sorry for his sins than he did the hottf when he learned that she d weighed 240 odd pounds."

ANCIENT AND MODERN BRITONS. "The aaoient Britons," says Plutaroh, "tnly began to grew old at 120 They were a wonderful people-those ancient Britons. Authorities say they were remarkable for their fine athletic form, their great strength and swiftness ef foot. They exoetled in wrestling, olimb- iog, and alllortl of physical exercise. They were patient of pain, toil, and suffering, and aoeustomed to bear hnngrr, cold, and all manner of hardships. They could run into soorassoje--whereof England had plenty ia those times-ancl live there for days without eating, ap to their neoks in maok and mire. Their arms, 1. and thighs were always left naked, and, for the most fart, were painted blue-a seat, eh tap, and attractive style of deooratien. And they could fight too-as we might imagine. 8e the Romans discovered when, fit their masterful way, they undertook to get pessesaion of this island. 8 ldsmith says the ancient Britons lived almost wholly on aoeraa, berries, and water, a diet whioh the poorest of Modern Bntons would regard as very thin and anratisfaetory. Yet they were splendid speelmeas of manhood, and didn't begin even to think about growing old until they had enjoyed 120 years of active life That the modern Briton falls below this standard will not be disputed. You may remind me that the ancient Briten was a savage. Well, what does that prove P It proves that a savage life is more oendnoive to health than a civilised life. Why ? It proves that the modern Briton is physioally a degenerate. Again, why? While you are turning the matter over in yout mtad I will oopy a short chapter from the autobiography of a medern Briton. "For over fourteen years, he writes, "I was ill. Most of the time I had a poor appetite, and after eviog suffered from weight and distention at the chest; and at the stomaoh a grinding, gnawing pain. Sometimes it seemed to me that my intestines were tied in a knot. Exhausted, tired, and more or leas in pain, I lived along thua year after year. "In March, 1894, I took a chill, whioh was followed by an attack of rheumatism. I had dreadful paina all ever me, and my bands and feet were stiff and drawn. Finally I was Obliffd t. trawl to bed en m, hands and kofts. Walk I could not, any more than I could fly. AU my ehest and left Bide waa aCeeted, and I was In agonies of pain. I was unable to ton in bed or to take my arms out of the bed- clothes. A dootcf attended me for eight week-i and prescribed fomentation, &o,, whioh gave but little relief "On Whit Monday (1894), through a letter of recommendation from Rev. Canon Dyke, Vioar of All Saints, I was removed in a cab to the Maidstone Hospital. There I lay in bed five weeks, living solely on milk. Two weeks later I left the hospital, feeling a trifle better. But I was a low-spirited, dejected man, with an idea that I should never be of much one again. In August my friend, Mr. Kent, of this place, urged me to try Mother Seigel's Syrup, which, he said, oured him. I had no faith in it, but got a bottle from Messrs. Leverett and Frye, in High Street, and after using it a few daya felt much lelieved. Continuing to take this medicine the pain and stiffaess rapidly abated, and after oonauming fsur bottles I was tomplttely well and have not had a pain or an acas ovor tine*. The pain and diatress after meals also disappeared, and I am now so bright and light hearted I wonder If I am the same man. My friends were astonished at my recovery, and I tell them, and everybody, that it was entirely due to Mother Seigel's Syrop. I will gladly reply to inquiries.

To diooaas the general influence of a oivilised life on the health and physical atruoture of man is im- possible In this brief article. One thing, however, is certain, that civilisation, as now understood, carries with it conditions which impair er cripple the mo.t important function ef the body—namely, the digeetleo. This is the prevailing disease of reoent times and the prolifio mother of nearly all the ailments whieh afflict u-making pain and weakness aniversal, spoiling our enjoyment and our working power, and tending a8 to our graves years before we should be dae there under other cirenmstanoes. Abolish this ourse and I see no reason why the modern Briton should not improve until a comparison with his ancestors did him less discredit than (we must admit) it does lit present. And so far as a single remedy can oontribute towards this result Mother Seigel's. Syr tip doea its pait. And what a man for bosinete, adventure, diplomacy, and war the average Briton will be when his life is a stream of pewer, unbroken by illness and untouched by time for 120 years. We smile grimly at the fond idea; yet, mingled with the soil of England is the dust of men to whom auch an experience was the role. Why may it not be eo again f Why not? e

A very painful illustration of the Scriptural words 41 In the midst of life we are in death oocurred at Oarmel on Friday night last, when Sarah Catherine Birohall, daughter of Anne Jane Blrchall, a widow, died after but a few hours illness. On Friday morn- ing the little girl complained of not feeling well, bat went as usual to sohool, and according to the schoolmaster's statement seemed in exoellent spirits. During afternoon school however the deceased had several attacks of vomiting. She went home to tea and eaid her throat was hurting her. The deceased's mother thought nothing serious was the matter with the child until late in the evening, when she immediately sent for a doctor, but the child died before medical aid could be procured.—An inquest upon the body was opened at the Halfway House, Whitford Road, on Saturday evening by Mr. F. Llew. Jones, deputy-coroner. Mr John Edwards, Parish Oounoiller, Bedw, was foreman of the jury. Evidence of the identification having been given, and as no indication of the canse of death was obtainable, and no doctor had attended the deceased, the Coroner decided to adjourned the inquiry in order that a Jost-mortem examination might be made. The ury assenting to the proposal, the inquest was adjourned to Thursday, and the Coroner issued the necessary certificate for the post-mortem examination which was oarried out DII. J. O. Jones and H. W. S. Williams.
