ST. ASAPH. THE VACANT DEANERY. The elevation of Dean Watkin Williams to the Bishopric of Bangor, renders vacant the Deanery of St. Asaph. The appointment of the new Bishep having been made by the Crown, the selection of the new.Dean rests in the hands of Her Majesty's present advisers. Several clergymen have been named as suitable or probable successors to Dean Williams, including Canon Fletoher, vicar of Wrexham, the Yen. Archdeacon Wynne-Jones, of Wrexham, and the Rev. Wynne Jones, vicar of Carnarvon. These clergymen are all very estimable men, but, for all that, there are other considerations to be taken into aooount. Canon Fletcher is undoubtedly a good preaoher and worker, but he is not a Welshman, and he has been reoognised by the Canonry bestowed upon him. Arohdeason Wynne-Jones is still a young man, and the high position given him in the Chapter of St. Asaph it, as yet, almost new to him. The Vioar of Carnarvon is-well, he is the son-in-law of the late Lord Aberdare. But surely there are olergymen in the diooese of St. Asaph who have home 44 the burthen and heat of the day," whose claims deserve—nay, even demand-recognition, and we do not hesitate to say that a feeling of indignation will arise if their claims are passed over. We are bound to recognise the varied and indefatig- able work of the Rev. Dan. Edwards, vicar of Rhyl; the zealous efforts of the Rev. W. Ll. Nicholas, rector of Flint—especially in the question of religious eduoation; and the effective, unobtrusive work of the (Rev. R. O. Williams, vicar of Holywell. The latter clergyman has a record of which any Christian minister may well be proud. For between thirty and forty years he has laboured in his large parish -exclusive of the time when he served as oarate under the revered Archdeacon Hugh-Jones—and during the whole of that extended period he has preserved not only an unsullied name, but one that is- honoured all the more as the years roll by. During the time of extreme tension when tithe riots were rampant, and military were quartered in Holywell—to quell riots outside of Holywell itself —the Vioar of Holywell was on terms of perfect friendliness with his parishioners. Conformists and Nonconformists, and not the slightest friction arose between the Vioar and his parishioners. He has maintained OhulOh agencies of every kind, and rendered invaluable work in building Holy Trinity Church at Greenfield, and beautifully restoring the Parish Ohuroh. The large congregations which assemble in Holywell Ohuroh Sunday after Sunday throughout the year, shew the spirit which has been inoulcated by the Vicar amongst his parishioners, and the attachment they have formed to the Ohuroh services. The work of suoh men as the Vioar of Holywell deserves recognition, and although the parishioners of Holywell would be sorry to part with him, still it is upon clergymen who have devoted their life to effective parochial work as the Vioar of Holywell has done, that such honours as the Deanery of St. Asaph should be oonferred.
MOSTYN. IXPOBXAMZ AROmTKBXT irolk THB OUUTB.- We understand that the new Bishop of Bangor has appointed the Rev Wm. Williams, M.A., curate of Mostyn, to be his domestio ohaplain. The news has been received by the people of Mostyn with mixed feelings--Pogret at the departure from amongst them of an earnest, industrious and very popular minister; and at the same time of rejoioing at his well-merited recognition. Mr Williams is a distinguished scholar, who gained for himself a high position at Jesus College. Oxford, where he took a second clas in Moderations and Lit. Hum.
DEATH: OF SIB. THOJttAS The residents of Mostyn and the district were deeply grieved with the intelligence received on Tuesday morning, that Sir Thomas Storey had that morning passed away at his residence, Westfield House, Lancaster. The deoeased knight had been in failing health for a considerable time, and the news of his demise was not wholly unexpected, but yet it caused a deep pang of grief among all the residents of Mostyn and Whitford. In the latter parish Sir Thomas Storey resided for some years as the tenant of the historio home of Thomas Pennant—Downing Hall—and the unbounded charity he and Lady Storey dispensed among the poor, made their names treasured in many a humble home, and Lady Storey and her family will have the warm-hearted sympathy of many Welsh hearts in the hour of their deep sorrow. As an employer of labour at the extensive Mostyn Iron Works, Sir Thomas Storey was at all times considerate and conciliatory with his work- people, generous in his dealings with them, and upright and straightforward in his transactions. The world at large is a loser by the death of a character such as Sir Thomas Storey, and Mostyn in bereft for the time of one of its benefftotors. Sir Thomas Storey was director and ohairman of the firm of Storey Bros, and Co., oilcloth manufacturers, and was also connected with many other industrial enterprises. He had been mayor of Lancaster four times, and had contested the division of North Lancashire and Lancaster. He gave to Lancaster the great Storey Institute, as well as a free library and reading-rooms. His age was 73 years. The deceased knight was third son of Mr Isaao Storey, and was born at Bardsea, near Ulverston, in 1825. He was educated in a primitive manner by his father, and when 13 years of age became an apprentice in a Lancashire cotton mill. He utilised his spare time in self-eduoation, and on the completion of his apprenticeship, when 20 years of age, became a railway surveyor, and was financial manager to the late Mr Edmund Sharpe, of Lancaster, during the construction of the portion of the Midland Railway from Moreoambe to Skipton. In 1849 the firm of Storey Brothers was atarted for the manufacture of oilcloth, and since 1861 the concern has developed into other departments, with works in Germany as well as in Lanoashire.
A Pkksian Misbb.—A merchant who has lately died at Isphahan, and left a large sum of money, was so great a niggard, that for many years he denied himself and his son, a young boy, every support except a crust of coarse bread. He was, however, one day tempted by the description a friend gave of the flavour of cheese to buy a small piece; but before he got home he began to reproach himself with extravagance, and instead of eating the cheese he put it into a bottle, and con- tented himself, and obliged his child to do the same, with rubbing the crust against the bottle, enjoying the cheese in imagination. One day he returned home later than usual, and found his son eating his crust, and rubbing it against the door. What are you about, you fool ?' was his exclamation. It is dinner- time, father; you have the key, so I could not open the door; I was rubbing my bread against it, because I could not get to the bottle.' I Cannot you go without cheese one day, you luxurious little rascal? You'll never be rich!' added the angry miser, as he kicked the poor boy for not being able to deny himself the ideal gratification. Attbactiye Gihls.—Any girl, by baths arid wyaole. some food, and by breathing pure air, can render her complexion clear and soft. With care, her hair, teeth, and nails can be daintily kept. Her clothes, however cheap, can be fresh and becoming in colour. She can train her mind, even if of ordinary capacity, to be alert and earnest. And, if she adds to these a 8incere, kindly, sunny temper, she will win friends and lovd as surely as if all the fairies had brought her gifts at her birth. It is of no use for a girl whose person is soiled and untidy, and whose temper is selfish and irritable at home, to hope to cheat anybody by put- ting on fine clothes and a smile for company. The thick, muddy skin and sour expression will betray her.

HALKYN. Ehtebtajootuint.—On Wednesday evening, last week, a very pleasant entertainment was given by the Holywell Minstrel Troupe, "The Snowdrops," in the Parish Hall, which was recently opened by Her Grace the Duchess of Westminster. Notwith- standing the inclement weather, the room was well filled, aad we trust the prooeeds will prove of material assistance in carrying on so worthy an institution. The entertainment was presided over by Alderman Peter Jones, J.P., Bryn Aw el, Halkyn (ohairman of the Halkyn Pariah Council). Before the programme was commenced Mr JoneB gave an address, in which he stated it afforded him very great pleasure and he considered it an honour to be aeked to preside over the entertainment that evening. He was very glad to see suoh an excellent audience, and thanked them for attending. He hoped they would enjoy the evening which he had no doubt was going to be a very pleasant one. The rme WM of a biffkly Aiwriipj aw A hwww ■looa oharacter, every item arousing the greatest enthusiasm and the performers communicating unalloyed pleasure for fuiiy two-and-a-half hours to an appreciative audience. The programme was as follows Way, cross de Misaisippi," the Troupe; "I never enjoyed myself," Mr Harry Jones; "De oomin' ob de King," Mr W. J. Hughes; "Oymru Fydd," Mr Evan Hughes; I happened to be there," Mr Willie Holgate; "Forward onward," Master Arthur Barker; "KiadDell rewarded," Mi N. Morgan Asthore," Mr J. E. Pierce; "De ole Banjo," Messrs Bert Williams and H. T. Hughes How long will you be love," Mr W. M. Chisholm Good night," the Troupe. Part TI.-Cornet solo, "The Return," Mr W. J. Hughes "The Warrior," Mr E. Jones; humourous interlude, Mr". M. Cbiriiolm; "Gallant Light Brigade," Messrs Sootcher, Holgate and Davies. The latter part of the programme was a moat laughable faroe entitled The Snowdrop High School," which was rendered in a trnly dramatio spirit, and oaused roars of laughter. Mr W. M. Chisholm with his musioal mimics was muoh enjoyed. Before the performance terminated Mr E. Lloyd Jones, Postmaster, Halkyn, proposed a very hearty vote of thanks to the "Snowdrops" for so kindly coming to Halkyn, gratis, to give the villagers suoh a pleasant performance. He wished them every sueoess and hoped It would not be the last time he should see them there. Mr W. Archibald Redfern, The Village, said he had muoh pleasure in seconding the vote of thanks. He Lad no doubt but that they all had enjoyed the entertainment, and said the troupe was an excellent one, and deserved much praise and enoouragement. Mr Obas. E. P. Jones, on behalf of the troupe, thanked Mr Jones and Mr Redfern for the vote of thanks passed, and for the kindly way they had been reoeived by all. The performers and their friends were afterwards entertained by the Recreation Committee to a cold collation prepared by Mr Alfred Vickers. The piano for the occasion was lent by The Lady Jane Lindsay, who is now staying at Halkyn Castle, and her kindness to the Committee was very muoh appreciated.
Courtships are tne sweet and dreamy tores- holds of unseen Edens, where half the world has paused in couples, talked in whispers under the moonlight, and passed on and never returned. Shakesfkabe's Plats.—Of all "great books" known to the English-speaking race, the plays of Shakespeare are those which most immediately and most powerfully occur to the mind. They are the most varied and the most extraordinary productions of the English genius familiar to us in the library and on the stage; BLM more familiar in those countless allusions, phrases, and well-known figures, which have become part of oor common life; illustrated in a thousand ways by pictorial art; and so identified with the whole structure of our minds that it is difficult even for the uninstructed to help thinking Shakes- peaie when they suppose themselves to be only using the words of ordinary parlance. It cannot, indeed, be said of this wonderful man that he helped to ferm the English language, for it was formed when he began to write, but he undoubtedly helped to Bx it. The dramas of Shakespeare, and the authorised trans- lation of the Bible, are the noblest standards of Eng- lish that we possess. Setting merely scientific and technical language aside, it is impossible to conceive any range of thought which the tongue of Shakespeare is hot able to make articulate and eloquent. We have never advanced beyond that vivid and vital speech, iCa48eWs Povalar Edaeator.
BILIOUSNESS. Not able to Eat for a Waek at a time. VICTORIA HOTEL, Platy BRIDGE, Near WIGAN, Nev. nth, 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 EittePS" to ill persons that I know. Yours truly, (141..) BAXTER.

Flint Chester St. Oswalds v. Rhos Holywell Reserve will be opposed by Flint U.A. -better known as the" Flumber. "-on Saturday next, kiok-off 2.30. < 0 The reputation of this team has come before it, and the Holywell men will have a hard nut to craok," but they also have been distinguishing themselves this season, therefore, a hard game and a close finish, will undoubtedly be the result. Flint played Helsby, at Flint, on Saturday last, and the matoh resulted in a win for Flint by six goals to nil. Holywell Oounty Sohool went down to Shotton last Saturday, to play the Ironworks Apprentices, and were defeated by three goals to nil. 100 j| Buokley Town were visitors at the Llay Hall diggings' on Saturday last. Llay Hall sustained their rap.tation-i.e. they lost-tbree goals to nil being the Boore. < New Brighton Tower Reserve went under to Wirral Railways to the tune of one goal to nil, the Wirral men having the advantage of being on their own groand, It was generally expeoted that Holywell would secure a couple of points on Saturday last, but few, if any, in their most chimerical dreams, expected suoh a harvest of goals. £ For the first time this ssason, Mr Gordon Jones took his place in the Holywell team, and the vigour and dash which characterised the play of the homesters on Saturday was, no doubt, the outcome of his brilliant example on centre. • £ The crowd whioh lined the ropes was rather a poor one, but a great number stood on the hedge- banks and freely oritioised the players and the game. In this fact there is nothing remarkable, for the hedge-speotator' in Holywell is an old-established and well-known fraternity, the wonderful part is that these enthusiasts (P) failed to find oooasion for their satrioal and derisive remarks regarding the play of the homesters. < The ties in the second round of the Welsh Junior Cup, were played off on Saturday, with the exception of Rhyl Reserve v. Llandudno Reserve, these teams having been granted an extension of time. The soores were as follows:—Bangor Reserve 4, Flint U.A.O's 1; Stansty Villa 5, Erddig Albion 0; Wrexham Reserve 2. Adwy 1; Druids Reserve 4, Ellesmere 0; Whitohurcb 1, Oswestry 3; Singleton and Coles 4, Dolgelly 0; and Llanfyllin beat Aberystwyth The draw for the third round of the Welsh Junior Cup took place at Wrexham on Wednesday, with the following results :— Div. 1: Rhyl or Llandudno Res. v. Bangor Reserve Div. 2: Stanity Villa v. Wrexham Reserve. Div. 3: Druids Reserve v. Oswestry Reserve JDiv. ILAatLfylUn v. Singleton aad Ooles. Firet-named clubs have ohoice of ground ties to be played off on or before January 7th. The burning question among the supporters of the Flint and Buokley Town clubs is, whether there is likely to be a ohange in the league champions as the outcome of next Saturday's matoh. The Buokley team have certainly a good chance, as the match is to be played on their ground, but it requires a win of four goals to nil to take the I ohemioal boys' 4 down a peg,' so, the prediction that Flint will still remain obampions, is a fairly safe one. • In the Combination League on Saturday, Bangor beat Oswestry by four goals to nil; Rhyl loat ot TraDmere Rovers, two goals to one being the score; Llandudno went under to Everton Combination to the tune of four goals to one; Wrexham got the better of South Liverpool to the extent of two goals to one Druids were defeated by four goals to nil by Liverpool A. whilet Chestei and White Star Wanderers divided the honours, with a score of three goals eaoh. HOLTWELL v. MOLD TOWN. HOLYWELL IN A SCORING MOOD. On Saturday last, the above teams met for the first time in a league match, viz, the Wirral League. Both teams having been doing indifferently in the competition, a couple of points would be an accept- able present to either. Mold therefore brought down their strongest combination with the idea of semiring the welcome two points, whilst Holywell was also up-to-date, having on the field the strongest team that has yet represented them in a league matoh, amongst whom the spectators were glad to see their old favourite—Gordon Jones—occupying the oentra position, and his presence, no doubt, had a lot to do with the heavy drubbing given to Mold. A new player was also tried at half-baok-F. 0. Bulliok- and his first appearanoe has left a favourable im- pression, The Holywell team toad the line' as follows :-Goal: H. T. Hughes baoks W. Jones and M. 0. Roberls; halves: Bulliok, Gallagher and Boyle; forwards: Eben. Hughes, Elford Roberts. Gordon Jones, J. Williams, and Frank Diokinson, Mold won the toss, and elected to play uphill and against the wind. Gordon Jones kicked off, and the ball was soon over the touch-line. The goal-kiok gave Mold a chance, but the ball was returned and the home forwards attaoked strongly, G. Jones just missing with a strong oblique shot. The homesters continued to press, the ball going either over the crossbar or behind' continually. Gallagher had hard lines, the ball hitting the crossbar. The home team olalmed a penalty-kick, and rightly too, but to the surprise of everyone, the referee gave a free-kick to Mold. This reverse stirred the Holywell forwards who obtained the ball, and ran clean through, scoring their first goal about twenty-five minutes from the start. Once having broken through, they played confidently, and in the space of five minutes after the first goal, they were 'three up.' After thiB surprise, Mold tried to score, their right wing being conspicuous, but the Holywell baoks were too good for them. The home forwards woke up again and penned the Mold team in their own goal, two more goals being scored in quiok succession. Thus half-time arrived with the score: Holywell, 5 goals; Mold, nil, During the second half, better play was witnessed, the Holywell forwards playing splendidly together and completely beat the visitors' defenoe. and in one instance, a back caught G. Jones round the waist within the penalty line, an act which escaped the eye of the referee. Before long the homesters had added another two goals to their score. Afterwards, they took matters easily, but the home backs would not let anything pass. However, the Mold forwards found a footing and scored a goal, the opening being a free-kick a)- .1.0. From the centre-kiok, the homesters -.ue again, and scored two more goals. Tow-Ad the latter end of the game, Mold made an -^empt to retrieve their losses, and gave Hu»Vd8 one or two 4 hot unB to deal with, whiM ne cleared niaely. When the whistle sounded for 4 time' the score stood Holywell, 0 goals; Mold Town, 1 goal.
A FREE Exouetiox TO THE Coast at this time of the year would be an acceptable boon to many a hard-working man, but as such an instance is hardly likely to occur in these dull times' the next best thmg a poor man can do, instead of getting ohange of air and scene is to purify his blood and cleanse his system with a few doses of Holloway,s Pill. This wonderful medicine for many years has been a blessing to the commercial world, it gives tone to the system ana purifies the blood and rapidly increases the strength of the brain. It also curcs indigestion in its most advanced form and in cases of neryons debility it is without a rival.

Wilkinson: I have pleasure in seconding the propesition, and I would ask your permission to supply the beer gratis. It may be argued that the inmates are brought here by their own injudioious conduct in the abase of drink, bnt there are many here who have been oompelled to seek this asylum, through no fault of their own, and who would be glad to get out if they oould. It is a pity that the many should suffer for the fault of the few.—The proposition was carried unanimously, the dinner to take place en Bank Holiday. APPLICATION JPOB OHILDBU.
