The preachers both delivered excellent and inspiring discourses, and especial interest was taken in the preaching of Mr Penry Evans, who is the son of the late Rev Mr Evans, of Cae Newydd, South Wales, a very eminent preacher, who died about ten years ago. Mr Penry Evans did double duty at Ruthin upon the occasion, for he had arranged to take the morning and evening services at the English Presbyterian Chapel, on Sunday, delivering two very impressive English discourses to large gatherings of the English friends. On Sunday afternoon he preached in Welsh at Pendref. The pulpit here was in the possession of Mr Adams for the morning and evening services on the Sabbath, and the anniversary proper was celebrated on the Monday, with two ser- vices, at two in the afternoon and at six in the evening. The two preachers took part in both services, addressing very large congregations. Mr Penry Evans made a very happy impression, both at the English Cause and at Pendref.

The first house occupied by Mr George Adams was Clwyd Bank, Clwyd- street, now ir the possession of Mr William Roberts, joiner, and Miss Roberts, milk dealer. Then he moved to Plas Efenechtyd, where he resided for many years, and where Mr LI Adams and one of his brothers were Dorn. The birth of Mr LI Adams took place on a Sunday, 77 years ago, and on the very same day the late Philip Williams, of 8tryt-y.Cerrig, first saw the light. Mr Adams came into the wotld at Plas Efenechtyd, and, a little lower down the Pool Park road, at Fir Grove Cottage, Philip Williams followed him on the self-same day I On the death of Miss Harriet Myddleton, the grand- father of the present owner of the estate came into possession, and, being desirous of having his agent near at hand, he built him a new house in Castle-street. Thus was Colomendy erected, the present resi- dence of Dr J R Jenkins, who since acquired the place by purohase. The family of Mr and Mrs George Adams comprised three sons, one of whom became Clerk of the Bolls of the Isle of Man Another entered the customs service, and M resided for many years at Peel, isle of Man, where he is well-known, and the third was Llewelyn, now deceased. Then Mr George Adams resigned the jst of agent to the estate, he went to live near Douglas, he and his ^ife fce ng Her red, we believe, at Kirk Braddan. son, who was the Master of the Rolls Man, used to reside at Port Erin, which -no helped to develop, and where he was buried. All three boys were educated at the Buthin Grammar School, and Mr Llewelyn Adams, like his brothers, ever seemed to entertain great affection for that foundation. A couple of years ago, when the custom of holding an annual re-union in connection with the school was revived he occupied the chair at the dimmer, and told some most amusing stories of his school days. He was articled to Mr Joseph Peers, solicitor, of Ruthin, who, for 51 years held the office of Clerk of the Peace for Denbighshire. In 1845, Mr Adams commenced practice on his own account, and at the end of the same year he married Miss Caroline Jones, daughter of the late Mr Price Jones, of Barth. This lady was then residing at Plas Llanrhydd, with her stepfather, Mr H nry Nichols. Twenty years after the marriage, which took place at Birkenhead, Mr and Mrs Adams went to reside at Ty 1Ia"r, which has been the home of the deceased gentleman ever since, and here he died. He had thre: sons, the elder of whom is abroad, the second is in London, and the third is in business at Coventry; and two daughters, MisaCaroline Adams, who married General Gary, and Miss Edith Adams, who has bean a kind and faithful attendant upon h'f ia her. General and Mrs Gary have resid d with Mr Adams, at Ty Mawr, sinca their marriage. In 1804 Mr Adams was appointed the clerk Jhe Ruthin justices, a duty which he ably performed pratically in person until the recent petty sessions, when his managing clerk, Mr John xtoberta, who is the secretary to the County Governing Body, and who has been in Mr Adams's uninterrupted service for 24 years, was unanimously appointed his deputy. About 33 years ago Mr Adams was appointed Clerk to the Rathin Highway Board, which position he held until the Board ceased to exist, upon the establishment of the Rural District Council. He heldj several important estate agencies, and wa t solicitor for the Ruthin enclosure of mons. In 1884, on the death of Mr Pews, he was entrusted with the important duties of Clerk of the Peace, and when the Local Government Act of 1888 came isto operation he became the Clerk to the County Council of Denbighshire. He has also been the Clerk to the Lord Lieutenancy since that office was bestowed upon Cel W Cornwallis West, of Ruthin Castle. For many years Mr Adams was one of the Churchwardens of Ruthin, and he greatly assisted the Rev Chancellor ^ulkeley Jones, the Warden of Ruthin, in carrying out the renovation of the fine edifice which forms the parish church. Although his father was Mayor of Rathin in the year w»a instru- ct W Attree, in <*rli^ment under which Company serve the dis- JS ne was the solicitor for the .»ed Ruthin and Cerrigydruidion 4way. which, when a good part l £ f the line had been prepared Jft metalling, had to be abandoned ^wing to some difficulty about the con- tractor. This was probably the chief disappointment inflicted upon Mr Adams during his long and busy life, and it had a far-reaching consequence for Ruthin. During a large share of his professional career, Mr Adams was probably the lead- ing advocatt. in North Wales. He was sought for by clients in all parts of the country. Being really a brilliant lawyer, and smart at discovering the weak sides of his opponents' cases, while his power of speech and humour generally pulled him out of difficulties, he was successful to a degree in the courts. His chief rival was for years the late Mr Louis, of Ruthin, and it is curious to recollect that in those days this little town provided the law for the greater part of Gwynedd One cele- brated case may be mentioned in which the three lawyer Engaged came from Ruthin, tythe case arising out of a robbery jewels from the seat of Loiu Trevor, ryn Kinalt, near Chirk. The advocates engaged in this matter, which created the greatest interest because of its mysterious nature, were Mr Adams, Mr Louis, and Mr Edward Roberts, who is still at work in Ruthin, as a member of the firm of Lloyd and Roberts, and the clerk to the Ruthin County School Governors. The wife of Mr Adams died about the year 1884 in Edinburgh, where she was buried. His three sons and two daughters already mentioned survive him. Mr R P Davies, of Ty Gwyn, Ruthin, entered the office of Mr Adams in the year 1846, on the 31st of August of that year. Mr Adams was then in Clwyd-street. As the business of the office grew, Mr Davies quickly developed into the chief clerk to his employer, whom he served without a break for no less than 44 years, taking a large share in the preparation ef the many cases and causes in which the principal figured so prominently in the various courts. The following letter has been addressed by Mr John Roberts to all the county justices and the members of the county council "5, Castle-street, Ruthin, 29th December, 1898. Sir,—It is with extreme regret that I have to inform you that the Clerk of the Peace passed away at 9.30 this morning. I beg to inform you that, in accordance with a desire expressed by Mr Adams and the members of the family, the funeral will be a private one, and will take pl at the Parish Church of Llanfair Dyffi-yn Clwy4 on Monday next, at noon.—I am, sir, your obedient servant, j,, Joiix ROBEP (Mr Au No flowers."

For all this they, on behalf of pstients and staff, tendered their grateful thanks to Miss Hughes.

X Denbigh military ball. V A GRAND SUCCESS. Last evening -xTh^rsday), a grand Military Ball was &i~9n in the County Hall, Denhigb, in connection with the D Troop, Denbighshire Hussars, and the" D" Co., 1st V.B.R.W. Fusiliers. The decorations were superb and presented 8 gay sight. They were made up of large and small banners, intermingled with crossed swords, rifles, and other Volunteer and Hussars' arms. At one end of the room were stars formed of bayonets, which looked very protiy. Great praise is due to Staff Sergt.-Major E. Brnton, D H., and Sergt.-lnstructor J Evans, R.W.F., who had the management of tfo$ arrangements. The choice plants w^e supplied by Mr D Em Hughe,, gardei £ Heuilan-place.

Quite a large and fashionable gathering were present the attendance quite exceeded expectations, as there must have been nearer 200 persons present consequently a large number had to do without programmes, as only 120 had been ordered, and the promoters of the ball wish to offer their apology for this mistake. The proceedings other- wise were a grand success from every point of view. A large number of officers, hussars, and volunteers were present in uniform, and these, together with the ladies' dresses, presented a gay appearance, and everyone was well pleased, arJd had a thorough evenin j's enjoymmfc An official list of those present could not be obtained, the parties arriving so rapidly and in such large numbers it was im- possible for the officials to obtain anything like a complete list.
AMUSING STORIES. "BOB'S A BAB vi$ One Snnday morning recenclj^a country swain took his future wife to the parish church, where the banns were to be read for the first time. Bob was supremely happy, and in the ful- ness of his heart he toiderea a small donation towards the organ fund at the close of the ser. vice. The lady who took the shilling tnrned to the blushing young woman on Bob's arm and ¡ expressed a wish that they would be happy together. "I believe you have found a steady, con- scientious and hard-working young man," she remarked, and yon should suit each other."
