On Saturday morning last Mrs. Evans had been shopping in the town and was apparently in good health.

Mrri Roberts went into the house, and being alarmed by the appearance of Mrs. Evans sent a liunied message for medical aid. Dr. J. H. Williams was quickly on the scene, and pronounced life extinct, death being due to heart failure. Her sudden death cast quite a gloom over the whole neighbourhood.

HOUSING COMMITTEE WORK. At a meeting of the Housing Committee an offer of land for housing purposes was made by a Nannerch gentleman. The com- mittee declined the oiler, there being no de- mand for workmen's dwellings in Nannerch district. A letter was read at the committee from Mr. II. A. Tilby, clerk to the County Coun- cil, stating that the Council were prepared to sell an acre or so of land at North op for building purposes. The price so be 6d. per yard, the purchase to be not less than one acre. If the District Council decide to purchase Mr. Tilby asked that a deputation be appointed to meet the Small Holdings Committee with respect to the site for the buildings to be erected. The committee appointed the Chairman, Mr. W. A. Ast- burv, Mr. T. C. Roberts and Mr. D. Hughes to meet the Small Holdings Com- mittee the following Thursday.
WHY BATHS ARE NOT PROVIDED. The Rev. T. E. Williams asked why were baths omitted from the plans of the houses for Mostyn. Was it on account of the ex- pense or deficiency of water? Mr. Petrie (chairman of the Housing z;1 Committee): Deficiency of water. Rev. T. E. Williams hardly thought it should be a sufficient reason. It would be necessary soon to augment the water sup- ply of Mostyn. Mr J. Petrie said the committee went into the matter. There was no district where they were adopting the housing pro- visions where there was anything like a water supply for baths. It was not for want of consideration that the plans had been so arranged. If the Local Govern- ment Board raised the question they had that as an explanation. If the committee introduced baths and then found no water they may be forced into a large water sup- ply for a small district which would be ab- sclutely prohibitive. The omission of the baths as suggested was approved.
GREENFIELD PUMPS. Mr. J. Petrie drew attention to the ques- tion of the Greenfield pumps, a matter that had been discussed at the last Parish Coun- cil meeting. He said it was through no neglect on the part of the man that the pumps were out of order. For some rea- son or other the pumps were subject to continual malicious damage. He did not know who was responsible for the damage, but if the Parish Council wished to serve the Council and their constituents they would try and find out. It was not child's work to take the top off the pump. In the Mostyn road pump, the top was off, and there was a hatful of road chippings, and in the Tai Coed pump there was found 14 wire fence staples and a. hatful of pebbles. No pump would stand the effect of such rubbish thrown into it. As to the qualifi- cation of the man appointed to attend to the pumps he had put down all the pumps and the water supply. He (the speaker) was not going to take lessens from the Par- ish Council as to the man's qualifications. It was a reflection upon the District Coun- cil to say the pumps of Greenfield and the water supply were a laughing stock. It was wrong. They considered the matter was unjust. They could not wait, but convened a parochial committee. lie attended the meeting—there was one parish councillor, himself and the man who attended to the village pump. The councillors were con- spicuous by their absence. The Tai Coed pump was put right, but on the way up he examined it and found it had been render- ed useless again. The wall plate near the Paper Mills he noticed had been forcibly removed. The whole business seemed to be wilful malicious damage and should be put a stop to. The Clerk Increase the reward offered for information. Mr. S. Williams: The police officer doee not live 100 yards away from the spot. Mr. Petrie: Six locks have within the last two years been carried away. On the suggestion of the Chairman, it was decided that Inspector Hill, Holywell, be asked to take the matter up.
COUNTY COUNCIL'S REFUSAL. The Clerk stated that duning the re- construction of the Holywell-Mold Road, traffic was diverted on to the district road between Pentre Halkyn and the Britannia. Application had been made to the County to make a grant towards the expenditure of £ 100 in putting the road in repair. A let- ter had been received from the Clerk to the County Council stating that the Main Roads Committee were unable to recommend the County Council to make a contribution. The recommendation was confirmed by the County Council. It was decided to request the Main Roads Committee to receive a deputation upon the matter. The Chairman, Mr. Petrie, and the Clerk were appointed.
COST OF SCAVENGING. GREENFIELD AND COLESHILL FECIIAN. Mr J. Petrie referred to the matter of the rating of Holywell Rural Parish for the special expenses of the scavenging of Greenfield ancl the fact of Coleshill Fechan being inadvertently included in the rating area. It was never intended, Mr. Petrie

Holywell Rural District Council. Mostyn Housing .Scheme: No Baths to be Provided. "DEFICIENCY OF WATEI:' The Holywell Rural District Council met at the Union Offices, Holywell, on Friday last. Present: Mr. Edgar J. Gaskell (vice-chairman) presiding, Mrs. Johnson Jones, Rev. T. E. Williams, Messrs. J. Petrie, Win. Williams, John Roberts, Wil- fred Astbury, T. C. Roberts, S. Williams, Edw. Davies, Peter Evans, Edward Evans, with Mr. P. Harding Roberts (cleikV and the Surveyors and Inspectors.
proceeded, that Coleshill Feehan should pay for the scavenging of Greenfield. To his idea there was not the slightest idet that Coleshill Fcchan was not a part of Bagillt, and was excluded from the rating area. One of two things must be done, either an amending order be obtained from the Local Government Board or they must arrange for the scavenging of Coleshill the Local Government Board or they must arrange for the scavenging of Coleshill Feehan. It would be ridiculous to ask a district to pay for the scavenging of a dis- trict 4 or 5 miles away. As the proposer of the scavenging scheme it never entered his mind that any part of Holywell Rural Parish, other than Greenfield, would be affected by the order. He would like to propose that before the next meeting the Clerk look up the minutes connected with this matter and that they discuss it at the next meeting. The Chairman: You want Greenfield to pay its own expenses ? Mr. Petrie: Certainly. I never thought of that for a moment. We have separate rating for lighting purposes and burial pur- poses, and 1 took it that it would be the same for scavenging purposes. It was a surprise to me that Coleshill Fechan was included. Mr. S. Williams: I propose that we ap- ply for an amended order. The Clerk: It will be better to act upon Mr. Petrie's proposition that the resolutions on the minute book be traced in the first instance. Mr. S. Williams agreed, and seconded Mr. Petrie's proposition, which was carried. Mr. Wm. Williams: Has Coleshill Fech- an always been out? The Clerk: The charge is made upon Holywell Rural Parish, excluding Bagillt only, and Coleshill Fechan forms part of Holywell Rural Parish.
ted that good work would be done in this direction in the near future. The Hon. Treasurer presented the state- ment of accounts, which showed that the year commenced with a credit balance of I1:0 19s. 7d. donations and subseription-s amounted to £ 37 13s. 4d. 'lhe total re- ceipts were KIGI 10s. 2d. After the pay- ment of all expenses the balance was E92 Is. 3d. The Chairman, commenting on the report and statement, said lie thought the meeting could be well satisfied that they were able to start the year with a balance of E92. He proposed that the report and statement be adopted. Miss Evans seconded the proposition, which was carried. Mr. T. W. Hughes proposed the re-elee- tion of Major Dyson as president of the Association, and said the Mayor had been at the head of the Association for some years, and they could not afford to be with- out him. He trusted that the Mayor would again accept office. The Rev. D. Edwards seconded the pro- position, which was carried with applause. Mr. Howarth proposed, and Mrs. C. E. Dyson seconded, the re-appointment of Mr D. Morris as hon. treasurer. The proposi- tion was carried. On the proposition of Mr. Henry Powell, seconded by Mrs. Humphry Williams, Mr. T. W. Hughes was unanimously re-elected lion, secretary. The Mayor thanked the meeting for again re-electing him president. He would do his best for the Association during the ensuing year. A letter was read from the Secretary of the Hawarden Bridge Works Hospital and Sick Nursing Collection Committee, sug- gesting that it might be mutually advisable to have a representative on the committee The Secretary said, considering the hand- some subscription received from the Haw- arden Bridge Works Committee, it would be only fair that there should be a repre- sentative on the committee. Mr. H. Powell proposed that the commit- tee be increased by the appointment of a representative as suggested. Miss Evans seconded Mr. A. Coppack was nominated by the Hawarden Bridge Works Committee, and was accordingly added to the committee, which was unanimously re-elected. Mr. H. Powell proposed a vote of thanks to the committee for the way in which they had carried out their work. He would also associate with the proposition their doctors and the nurse. They could not have a better nurse—more hard-working and at- tentive to the sick—than Nurse Jones. Miss Lombard seconded the proposition, which was carried. Mr. T. W. Hughes, acknowledging his re-appointment as hon. sec., said he had acted as such from the commencement. The committee had taken up new work in a scheme for the after-care of children. It was a scheme introduced by Miss Davies- Cooke, and had been established in Mold and other places. He believed that when the scheme was got to work it would have excellent results. There might be some op- position, but given a good trial they would be able to present a good report at the end of the year. Mr. D. Morris thanked the meeting for re-appointing him hon. treasurer, and said it was a privilege to be associated with such a noble institution. The Chairman, on his own behalf and on behalf of all present, thanked the mem- bers of the committee for their work during the past year. The people to whom relief was given were satisfied that the committee were really doing something worth doing, and he was sure subscribers were satisfied with the way the finances were looked after. He hoped the committee would be enabled to continue their good work.
