HOLYWELL Don't forget Connah's Quay St. Mark's Church Bazaar, June 3rd, 4th, and 5th. WOMAN SENT TO PRISON. At Holywell Police Court on Wednesday hiorning, before Messrs. S. Jones and Jos. Edwards, Margaret Davies, aged 48 years, °f no fixed abode, was brought up on a charge of being drunk and disorderly in High-street, at quarter to eleven the pre- vious night. P.C. Humphreys proved the case, and the defendant was sentenced to one month's imprisonment. S.P.G. SUNDAY. The claims of the Society for the Propa- gation (;f the Gospel were advocated at the Parish Church !«u Sunday last, when the Rev. E. H. Hay, Birkenhead, OIle of the secretaries of the Society, Was the special preacher. In the course of the eloquent sermons delivered morning and evening, the preacher referred to personal experiences during missionary work in Burma. MOTOR-BUS RIVALS TO TRAIN SERVICE. Holywell, since the new railway to the town has been opened, has patted itself on the back that a good thing had come along. People from the lower end of Greellfieldand hOlll towards Mostyn on one side and Bag- illt on the other took advantage of the train fo shop at Holywell. Alas, Holywell alJpears to have sustained a set-back. Last Saturday a motor-bus service was commen- ced between Flint and Ffynnongroew, run- hing trips every two hours. How far the service will affect Holywell remains to be seen. To avoid such an effect the li roan Authority of Holywell would be well advised, for the gocd of the town, to agitate o iu the most insistent manner possible for the opening of a halt near the Abbey with aPproach from Bagillt Road, alongside the bridge. It is only by such an arrangement that trade from Greenfield can be retained, otherwise it will be diverted to other neigh- bouring towns. OLD COMRADES OF THE C.L.B. A meeting convened for the purpose of forming u local lodge of the "C.L.B. Old Comrades," was held at the Drill Rooms, ^'hitford street, on Saturday afternoon. There was a good number of ex-members in addition to the officers of the C.L.B. pre- set. After the brigade prayers—which were preceded by the singing of the brigade hymn, "Fight the Good Fight"—had been read, the Company sat down to tea, which was generously provided by Mrs. Dykins (Pendre). The work of the formation of the lodge was afterwards proceeded with, the vicar (Rev. J. W. Thomas) occupying the chair. General rules and suggestions were .o considered, and the following officers elec- ted: Chaplain, Rev. J. W. Thomas; trea- I surer, Mr. W. Leonard Davies; secretary, Walter Davies; assistant secretary, Mr. R. H. Jones. A small committee was also appointed to assist in the work of the lodge. The movement has among its objects the furtherance of the work of the C.L.B. and other church societies, and the ledge is in- tended to be composed of members (ex- ambers of C.L.B. who have served five years) and associates (ex-members who served a shorter period), and officers on active list of C.L.B. are eligible as honor- ary members. A service will be held in the Parish Church on June 21st, when members will be enrolled and membership badges presented. After the work of formation was completed, a smoking concert was held, an enjoyable programme being gone through, to which the following contributed: Revs. Jones and Rees, Messrs. Claridge, W. L. Davies, Herbert Jones, J. E. Yarncll, H. Humphreys and S. Bickerton. A hearty vote of thanks to Mrs. Dykins for her kind- ness in providing the tea, and to the ladies who assisted, was unanimously accorded. The singing of the National Anthem con- cluded the meeting. GEOGRAPHY OF FLINTSHIRE. There will in a few weeks be issued from the Cambridge University Press a further contribution to the county geographies which have been compiled under the general edi- torship of F.H.H. Guillemard, M.A., M.D., and which have been written up locally. Flintshire is in preparation and as stated will soon be in the hands of the public. The Flint County Geography is under the auth- orship of Mr. J. Morgan Edwards, M.A., headmaster of Holywell County School. The volume is replete with maps, diagrams, and illustrations and contains a wealth of information that will prove as interesting as it is instructive. The work opens with the meaning and origin of the word Flint, and after giving the general characteristics geo- logy, natural history, coastal gains and loss- es, climate, rainfall, industries, etc, the his- tory of Flintshire is given—a story full of stirring incidents and importance. ASLEEP ON THE FOOTPATH. At a special Police Court on Thursday, before Messrs. J. Carman and J. Edwards, Joseph Jones, of Penyball-street, was brought up on a charge of being drunk and disorderly in New Road the previous mid- night. Mr. J. Kerfoot Roberts appeared for the defence. P.C. Humphreys stated that about ten minutes to twelve the prev- ious night he found the defendant lying on the footpath in New Road. He was then fast asleep. He awoke him, and when he got him up found that he was drunk. Upon being awakened from hi" sleep defendant be- came very abusive and wir n he started him on his way home to PenyLall street, defen- dant refused and was very disorderly. With the assistance of P.C. Davies, Green- field, he lccked him up. Defendant's plea was that lie knew nothing of his condition the previous night. A seafaring man he met between Greenfield and Holywell, gave him a drink out of a bottle. He had had a drink or two before lie had the drink out of the bottle. After he took the drink from the sailor he knew nothing. It was shown that the defendant had previously borne a good character, and the Bench, taking that into consideration, dismissed the case on payment of costs, 10s. 4d.

Lloyd, Colwyn Bay, D. Williams, Buck- ley, and J. D. Williams, Flint, are among those who will take part, together with the local ministers. DUST NUISANCE. Bagillt street from end to end has lately been hidden by a cloud of dust raised every few minutes by the succession of motor cars and other vehicles. Tradesmen complain that the loss by the spoiling of stock is as much as the rates they pay. Why the Flintshire County Council should delay tar spraying in Bagillt so uncon- sciously long, while a road such as that from Holywell to Northop that has neither the traffic nor the roadside population of Bagillt, should be attended to, they cannot

Mr Griffith delivered an interesting address. At the close a col- lection was made in aid of the church funds.
CONNAH'S QUAY. ACCIDENT. An accident which might have proved most serious took place on Tuesday after- noon. It appears that the Council work- men were engaged in the work of tar spray- ing near the Wepre boundary of the dis- trict, when a light vehicle containing two ladies by some means or other collided with a heavy cart engaged in the work. One of the ladies was somewhat severely inujred, owing to a horse rearing up, and the other received a severe shaking. The light ve- hicle was considerably damaged. CONNAH'S QUAY AND DISTRICT SILVER PRIZE BAND. Tho annual meeting of the Connah's Quay and District Silver Prize Band took place at the Quay House Hotel on Tuesday eve- ning. There was a capital attendance of members and the general public. The an- nual report and statement of accounts were submitted, and showed that the band is in a flourishing condition, the whole of the debt from the previous year having been liquidated. Mr. H. Summers was elected president and Mr. Andrew Reney vice- president, with Mr. A. Evans secretary and Mr. Joseph E. Hewitt treasurer. During the evening a presentation of a silver baton was made to the bandmaster and conductor by Mr. Andrew Reney, as a mark of appre- ciation of his work. Everything points to this popular band having a most successful future.

INCREASED PAY FOR POLICEMEN. West Riding Standing Joint Committee have adopted a scheme for an all-round in- crease of pay to the police force.
-+- CAERWYS. EMPIRE DAY AT THE SCHOOLS. Empire Day was recognised at The Church of England Schools on Friday before break- ing up for the week end. The scholars as- sembled in the school yard, and as there is not a flagstaff provided from which the Union Jack may be unfurled, one of the boys was given the honour of upholding the flag. The juniors sang The flag of the free," and the seniors Ged Bless the Prince of Wales." The Headmaster, Mr. T. Ll. Jones, in a short address on the ob- ject of the day, explained what a glorious and extensive Empire they were members of, and how it was the duty of every citi- zen, young as well as old, to uphold the prestige of the Empire, and to do nothing that would in any way disgrace the honour of their flag. It was not in Wales, nor yet in Great Britain, that the Uniun Jack was looked upon with pride, but throughout the great Colonies in all parts of the world, and among all foreign nations the British flag was looked upon as the emblem of justice and freedom and protection. Three cheers were given for the King, followed by the singing of the National Anthem and Hen Wlad fy Nhadau," and the children march- ed past the flag, giving the salute, and then dispersed for the day. INDUCTION OF NEW RECTOR. Last Sunday, the Rev J. Sinnett Jones, M.A. (Oxon.), late vicar of Mountain Ash, Glam., for the past 13 years, and who suc- ceeds the Rev. A. E. H. Hyslop as rector of Caerwys, read himself in, and on Wed- nesday afternoon was formally inducted by Archdeacon Lloyd, of Rhyl. The new rec- tor took the service, and the lesson was read by the Rev. Jones, Dyserth (brother of the Rev. J. S. Jones); the other clergy pre- sent included the Rev. O. Davies, Bodfari; E. Lodwick Ellia, Ysceifiog; Ellis Davies, Whitford. Upon the Rector being formally inducted and conducted to the door, bell, font, pulpit, etc., he was accompanied by Mr. Wm. Matthews, churchwarden, and Mr George Main, sidesman. The induction hymn was "0 God, our help in ages past," Mr. H. Williams presiding at the organ. The Archdeacon afterwards gave an address in which he referred to the reason for the holding of such a service-its institution wa possibly as old as the history of the church itself, and the old customs of the church were retained and preserved to help them as a Christian people. The par- ishioners and they bad a duty to perform in assisting the incumbent to carry on the work of the Church, as it did not depend upon him but upon every Church member to help forward the work of the Church. -0-
FFYNNONGROEW PERFORMANCE OF A WELSH DRAMA A large audience assembled on Wednesday night at the Wesleyan Schoolroom, when the Dramatic Society gave a performance of the Welsh drama "Helynt a Heulwen" ("Storm and Sunshine"). This was the first appearance of the organisation, and their initial presentation was greatly to tiuir credit. The drama in four acts was followed with keen interest, and was ex- e. v-Jiingly well v.aged. The scenery was ap- propriate ami in-J costuming effective. The east was au iullows Wniphra Jones (dea- cu::), J oil n J Fan Hnw's (postman), T. Jom -i; John Griffitil (barber), Mr. H. W. Lloyd Tonics Dafis (Pencantwr), Mr Robt.

Edwin Jones, of Hilbre View, sustained a severe scalp wound on Monday, necessitat- ing medical attendance. The boy was play- ing in the schoolyard when he fell heavily and striking his head on the ground cut his head, which bled profusely. ir,4
TRYDDYN. SINGING FESTIVAL. The yearly singing festival of the Calvi- nistic Methodist Sunday schools in the Llanarmon district was held at Tryddyn. The chapel was full on Tuesday afternoon and crowded in the evening. Most of the tunes were sung remarkably well. "Sax- ony," "Savah," "Penylan," and especially "Gwinllan," were rendered with superb effect. Mr R. Harris Jones (Ruthin) con- ducted, and the services also of the Ruthin Tabernacle Orchestra, under the leadership of rr. Bonner Thomas, were appreciated greatly. The secretary read a satisfactory report on the yearly examination in music, which Mr. Rees, Nerquis, had conducted. Twenty-two candidates were successful this year, as against two in the preceding ex- amination. --+:+-
OUR FRIENDS ABROAD. The following report, which is taken from The Mail and Advocate," of St. John's, Newfoundland, will be of interest to many Flintshire people:— Rev. Glen Lloyd, son of G. B. Lloyd, Esq., of the Post Office, was the preacher at St. Mary's Church last evening. There was a large congregation and the service was most impressive. The Rector officiated, the Rev. Lloyd reading the lesons and preach- ing. In opening he expressed his great plea- sure at being able to take part in the service at St. Mary's, the church where he wor- shipped in his boyhood days and where he was confirmed. He then announced his text and deliv- ered an impressive sermon dealing with the Lord's words to the doubting disciple, St. Thomas. The rev. gentleman had the strict- est attention of the large congregation, as he drew forth lessons from the text. He is an impressive speaker, and promises to be- come a pulpit orator of note. At present he is in Deacon's Orders, but he hopes shortly to be advanced to the Priesthood. His discourse last night was an excep- tionally brilliant one, and his friends in St. John's hope to have the pleasure of hearing him again. Rev. Lloyd is stationed near Parham, Kingston, Ontario, and is here on a brief vacation."

11 GWALIA." We are frequently asked what Ie the meaning of the word "Gwalia." In its correct signification it of course means "Wales," but in this particular instance it is the title of a well-known firm of Welsh Clothiers The Gwalia Clothing Co., Ltd., who, starting with one small shop, are now,. by reason of the quality of their goods, the low prices at. which they are marked and their enterprising business methods, doing a large trade in a number of the principal towns in the Principality.

Mr. Williams, Bedol Farm, possesses a cow which last week gave birth to twin calves, this being the second twin calving— four calves in eleven months. DEE FISHERIES: NEW GOVERNING BOARD. The bill prepared by the Board of Agri- culture and Fisheries with a view to the im- provement and development of the salmon and fresh-water fisheries of the River Dee, which has been before Parliament since ear- ly in April, and was referred to an Opposed Bill Committee about a fortnight ago, is now assured of an easy passage through the House of Commons, all opposition having since been withdrawn. The bill abolishes the existing Board of Conservators and cre- ates as its successor a fishery board, which will include representatives of the county councils in Chester, Denbigh, Flint, Merion- eth, and Salop, and of the councils of Bir- kenhead and Chester, members representa- tive of public fisheries within the district under the Salmon Fishery Act and ex-officio members, consisting of landowners and fishery-owners and tenants of fisheries of a gross estimated annual value of not less than £30. The bill gives the new board power to acquire fisheries, limit the number of salmon fishing licences, and to make by- laws. The time and place of the first meet- ing of the new board is to be fixed by the Board of Agriculture and Fisheries.
