AN INDIAN'S VIEW. The Chief of Ichalkaranji, in the Bombay Presidency, visited Europe a year ago, and he has now published an account of what he saw—"Impressions of British Life and I Character." (Macmillan, 8a. 6d. net.) The large part that amusement play6 in the life of this country did not escape the eyes of the visitor, and he does not alto- gether approve of it: Coming (he says) from a poor country like India, and noting the innumerable theatres, music halls, and picture pal- aces, with their nightly throngs of pat- rons, both in England and on the Con- I tinent, I could not resist the conclusion that here there is waste of money, time, and energy, which could very well be directed into other channels of a more profitable kind. Evening entertainments are useful to some extent, and may have their value in keeping people away from more questionable forms of recreation, but over-indulgence in them is harmful. The cost of living would be reduced if people went in less for enjoyment. There is work here for a reformer of society. "Europe," adds our censor, Tias yet to learn the golden truth that comfort and happiness come not so much from without as from within." Some of the caprices of fashion came in for criticism, such as "high and tiglit white collars and narrow shoes," and some ar- ticles of ladies' wear:— The encirclement of the neck in adam- ant tightness to a depth of some two and a half inches, and the cramping of the feet in a hard casement made from ani- mal carcass, are forms of penance to which only a European can willingly sub- mit. But even these eccentricities of I' male attire are less of an enigma to the uninitiated than those now in vogue among ladies—the exposed neck, the hobble skirt, and the slit dress. These surely mark the acme of unbecoming ab- surdity. Some of the hats worn by European ladies, too, are, in the Chief's opinion, "fearfully and wonderfully made," and many will agree.

GREENFiELD. PRESENTATIONS TO MR. AND MRS. PETER DAVIES. SILVER WEDDING CELEBRATION. There was an interesting gathering in the Canterbury street NI-elsli Missioi. Hall, Oarston, on Wednesday evening last -week, v-'lien the teachers of the Sunday School and a few friends were entertained to tea by Mr. Peter Davies, one of the principals of the Crown Copper Works, Garston. As the event coincided with another intelesting eYent, the silver wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Davies, the teachers decided to mark the occasion by a presentation. The Rev. J. D. Evans presided over the Meeting and made the presentation, which consisted of a silver egg stand inscribed: "Presented to Ifr. and Mrs. Peter Davies by the Canterbury street Sunday School on the occasion of their silver weeding, May Both, 1914." Mr. Evans referred to the long association of Mr. Davies with Gar- den, and to the services he had from time to time rendered to the Sunday School Meeting in that place. Those services were "ry highly appreciated by the teachers and they had taken that opportunity of demone- trating their apprecitaion. He wished Mr. and Mrs. Davies well for the future. The presentation came as a complete surprise to Mr. Davies, the affair having been kept very secret. An interesting in- novation was the fact that Mrs. Davies came forward to receive the gift on behalf of her husband and herself. Mr. Davies thanked Ins friends very heartily for that token of their appreciation and for all the love and good wishes it con- veyed to Mrs. Davies and himself. He hoped to be of service to them to the end of his days. Mission work had always ap- pealed strongly to him, for he had in his early days, before he came to Garston, been connected with a mission cause in Holy- well. Short addresses were given by Messrs. George Williams and Richard Jones repre- senting the school at Canterbury street, and by Messrs. Robert Thomas, Richard Wil- liams, R Sanders, Jones, and H. Parry Jones, representing the church at Chapel road, expressing good wishes for Mr. and Mrs. Davies's welfare and happiness in the future, with the hope that they would be long spared to each other and to their dear ones and to their friends for many years to come. Mr. M. W. Humphreys rendered one of his famous songs, Mae's olwyn yn troi" 1 6 ("The wheel of Providence revolves"). Among those present were Mr. and Mrs. E. Clement Davies, Mr. and Mrs. Peter Davies, junr., Mrs. John Davies and Mrs. Robert Davies, and the chairman alluded to the fact that Mr. Davies was supported bv his children, expressing the hope that they. too, would be found in the Master s service so long as they lived and thus be to their father a "crown of song." The higher service alone had lasting effect and real joy. Mr. John Thomas proposed a vote of thanks to Mr. Davies for his generous hos- pitality, and this was seconded in a racy speech by Mr. J. Wynne Jones, and car- ried with applause. Mrs Clement Davies was especially thanked for the skilful way in which she had managed the arrange- ments for the tea. In celebration of the silver weddiiig, Mr. and Mrs. Peter Davies were the recipients of a large number of presents, including the following:—Mr. and Mrs. C. Davies, silver crumb scoop; Mr. and Mrs. P. Davies, sil- ver jug and fruit bowl; Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Davies, silver salt cellars; Mr. and Mrs. R. Davies, silver afternoon fruit knives; Mrs. Ashton, Rochdale, silver serviette rings; Mr. and Mrs. Rawlinson, silver muf- fin dish.
BRYNFORD. C.M. MONTHLY MEETING. The monthly meeting of the Flintshire Presbytery was held at Saron Chapel, Brynford, on Monday. The business was included in an afternoon meeting, the Rev. Edw. Pierce, Trelogan, presiding over a good attendance. The Rev. Thos. Roberts, Ffynnongroew, conducted the devotional service at the opening. Commemorative remarks were made in respect of the late Mr. Robt. Stealey, Waentrodlas, one of the deacons at Halkyn Chapel. The Rev. W. Williams, Henblas, spoke in appreciative terms of the usefulness of the late deacon. Sympathetic reference was made in regard to a number of members in trouble and sickness. Among those mentioned was Mr. Richard Jones, Rosslyn, whose Bon Rich- ard has just passed through a severe ill- ness. It was arranged that the next meet- ing be held at Peniel Chapel, Greenfild, on July 27th and 28th. An account of the cause at Saron was given by the deacons and the Rev. Hugh Roberts. The Rev. J. Ivor Jones, Coed Talon, formerly of Saron, made the inquiries, the replies to which were favourable, and showed some increase since the monthly meeting was last held at Saron four years ago. The Rev. J. E. Da- vies, Holywell, drew attention to the first Sunday in July being devoted to the claims of the Sustentation Fund. Other matters of a routine nature were dealt with, and the ministers and delegates were afterwards hospitably entertained by the ladies of the chapel. At the services which were held the same evening, and on the following day, the preachers were the Rev. T. C. Williams, Menai Bridge; Rev. J. E. Da- vies, Holywell; Rev. W. S. Jones, M.A., Chester.
HATPIN DEFENCE. GIRLS' STORY OF AN ATTACK. At Wrexham County Police Court on Tuesday, Price Hughes, twenty-seven, of Wrexham road, Pentre Broughton, was charged with assaulting Sarah Taylor, seventeen, of New Broughton. According to the evidence, the prosecu- trix and a friend named Blodwen Jones, were walking home from Wrexham on the night of the 4th instant when the prisoner, who was a stranger to them, came up and made a remark about the weather. He then took hold of prosecutrix, and in consequence of his behaviour she kicked him. He struck her in the hack and seized her by the shoulder, and got her on the ground and pulled her towards the hedge. She struggled and got hold of his throat, while her companion pulled him backwards by the neck. Prosecutrix hit him on the head, and he then struck her twice in the face. During the struggle Mists Jones stabbed him in the back with a hatpin which broke off without inflicting injury. Using a se- cond hatpin she stabbed him again, causing him to release his hold on the prosecutrix. The girls afterwards ran away and met a cyclist who searched for the prisoner but he had decamped. Last Saturday the prisoner was seen pass- ing the house where prosecutrix lived, and both she and Mise Jones recognised him immediately. He was afterwards arrested. The charge was one of common assault, and prisoner was sent to gaol for a month i with hard labour.

CONftAH S QUAY. WESLEY AN CIRCUIT GATHERING. Last Thursday the annual gathering of the Mold English Weeleyun Circuit was held at Connali's Quay, when the deputa- tion was the popular head of the West Lon- don Mission, the Rev. J. E. Rattenbury, wiio is a well-known preacher and lecturer. The circuit embraces Mold, Buckley, Lees- wood, Connali's Quay, Queensferry and Flint. The services were held in the Eng- lish Presbyterian Church, which was kindly lent for the occasion. In the afternoon Mr Rattenbury preached to the largest congre- gation the gathering had known for some years. Mr. Rattenbury delivered an im- pressive message based on Romans vii. 29— 30. During the service trere was a pre- sentation of purses (of moneys collected in aid of the circuit funds) by the children, the amount raised being only a few shil- lings short of £ 10. Amongst those present were the Rev. A. Shipham (superintendent minister), the Rev. Wm. Jackson, Pastor T. Marsh, the Rev. E. Griffiths (Presby- terian), the Rev. Phillipson (P.M.), the Rev. R. R. Owen (Welsh Congregational), the Rev. H. Dennis Jones (English Con- gregational, Shotton), the Rev. Richard Roberts (C.M.), etc. A tea was held in the English Wesleyan schoolroom, and there was a large attendance. The ladies of the congregation rendered willing service at the tables under the superintendence of Mrs John Parker and Mrs. Marsh, The evening meeting was held in the Presbyterian Church, where there was again a large at- tendance, presided over by Mr. J. Prince, J.P., who was supported by the circuit ministers and others. The Chairman referred to Mr. Rattellbury's work at the West London Mission in eulogistic terms, and said that his fame was "in all the Churches" and in most of the religious periodicals. In Mr. Rattenbury the evan- gelistic faith and work went together, and it was from this union that such excellent results transpired. They wanted more Mr. Rattenburys, and they could pray God to send more such labourers into His vine- yard. Mr. Rattenbury, who was well re- ceived, lectured on the work of the West London Mission under the title of The Hand of the Potter"—the title of one of Mr. H. Begbie's books. Paul's description of the Gospel as the" Power of God into Sal- vation" was as true to-day as it was in New Testament days. Some people seemed to have almost given up belief in conversion, but the facts were too abundant to doubt the existence of men who had been miracu- lously saved by the grace of God There was no need to teach that to a Methodist congregation He said that when the day came that the Wesleyan Methodist Church ceased to believe in conversion, the next day 6lie would cease to be altogether.
LLANASA. TANLAN GARDEN FETE. The preparations for the garden fete at Tanlan, where a sale of work will be held next month in aid of Gwespyr Mission Church, are progressing in the most satis- factory manner.

Jones, Cerrigydruidion; and the Rev. Parry Brooks, Caerwys.
NORTHOP. WOMEN'S UNIONIST ASSOCIATION On Friday evening last the members of the Northop branch of the above Associa- tion, together with their husbands, were invited to a knife-aiul-fork tea in the school- room by Mrs. 11 Pearce, Soughton House, president of the branch. Following the tea an address was given by Mrs. Pierson. There was a large attendance of members and friends. The chair was taken by Mr. H. Pearce, who, in introducing the speaker, spoke of the pleasure many of them had had of hearing her address there on a for- mer occasion. Mrs. Pierson gave a capital -id address, which was closely followed. She referred to the Welsh Disestablishment Bill, the Home Rule Bill, and the Insurance Act. The Vicar also spoke on the Welsh Bill and its effect on the parish. A vote of thanks to Mrs. Pierson was proposed by Mr Pearce, seconded by the Vicar, and hearti- ly carried. A similar compliment to the chairman was proposed by Mrs. Richard- son. the energetic secretary, and seconded by Mrs. Hughes. A hearty vote of thanks was accorded to the president, Mrs. Pearce, for providing such an enjoyable evening. Supper followed and was much enjoyed.

SANDYCROFT. DISTINGUISHED VISITORS. On Thursday a visit was paid to the well-known works of Sandy- croft, Limited, by Mr. Yuan Shih Chuan, a near relative of the President of the Chinese Republic. He was accompan- ied by Mr. E. H. Yuan, M.E., and Captain FitzHugh. The distinguished visitors were received and entertained at luncheon by the managing director of the company, Mr E. Sydney Taylor, and other directors. Subsequently the visitors made a minute inspection of the various departments in the works, and were very much impressed by what they saw. Before departing they r expressed themselves as thoroughly satisfied and pleased with their visit. Mr. Yuan is concerned in the biggest mining scTieme that has ever been entertained in China.

Lifeline was the name of a defendant at the Liverpool Police Court yesterday. During the last few nights a nightingale has been heard at Moclidre, near Newtown, its nightly song attracting hundreds of people to the scene. It is thirty yeara since one was heard in this part of the county before.
transfer these God's acres, which they had been accustomed to love and venerate, to the care of a secular body which might be hostile to the Church. The income of the benefice of Holywell after the Act had come into force would be utterly inadequate to maintain the present clergy and the ser- vices at the two churches in the parish. The outlook for the future was one of dark lhisgiYings. The effect of the operation of the Act would be to entail large demands upon the offerings of Churchpeople, but he feared that in some cases, where no endow- ments remained, the parish churches would be silent from lack of ministers. It had been urged by some who were the strongest advocates of this measure That its opera- tions would result in peace and goodwill among the people of Wales, but it seemed to him, on the contrary, that it would leave a festering sere which would ache and rankle in the minds of Churclipeople. Dark as the future appeared, the work of the Church would go on. D COMPANY ORDERS. Company orders for week ending 27th June.—Orderly sergt., Sergt. A. Boyle; Orderly Corpl., Lce.Cpl. T. E.
