I bT ASAPH. OSDRS .vi'ION .BERVICHS.—On Sunday the Trinity ordination services were held in the a-iid ol' ii. very interesting character. "the Special preacher W.3 the sou- in law of the late Mr Gladstone, namely, the Rev Harry Drew, vicar of Buckley, who de- livered a. most powerful and appropriate sermon on The priesthood." The musical portion of the service, was most admirably rendered by the choir and the organist, Mr Belcher. Par- ticulars of the candidates ordained appear in the official list. -e-
Because it can be easily proven, and evidence from a distant town cannot. 4. The scales tell the story at a glance. It matters not how much foreign evidence one places in the big pan, it never can weigh down the one little piece of evidence from Denbigh. Denbigh evidence is good evidence. THIS IS DENBIGH EVIDENCE. Mrs. Sarah Williams, of 28, Post Office Lane, Denbigh, says :—" I am 51 years of age, and I always enjoyed good health till some little while ago, when I became subject to acute pains in the small of my back and loins. When I rose in the morning I had always a dull, heavy pain across my back and in my head, which got worse as the day went on, till I hardly knew what I was doing. I was frequently seized with fits of giddiness and was obliged to take hold of something for support or drop into the nearest chair or I should have fallen. This was always followed with a lew sinking feeling that depressed me very much. I took all sorts of medicines, but they failed to do me any good. Then I got some of Doan's Backache Kidney Pills, and aftel taking them for a while I felt better. I kept on with them, my health steadily improved, till I am quite well and strong.—(Signed) SARAH WILLIAMS." THREE REASONS WHY DOAN'S BACKACHE KIDNEY PILLS CURE. (1) They act on the kidneys and bladder only-not on the bowels. A medicine to be effective should not contain a little something for every organ of the body, and thus, by dividing up its energy, be effective for none. (2) They act in harmony with nature, because they are an aid to the greatest of all humaa engines-the kidneys—soothing and healing and greatly stimulating them to freely flush off all the uric acid and other poisons from the system. These poisons are the cause of such symptoms and diseases as rheumatism, neuralgia, nervous debility, gout, pains in the back, limbs and head, that restless, nervous, irritable feeling, worry, sleeplessness, gravel, stone in the bladder dropsy, lumbage, in- 1 flammation of the bladder, heart failure—these symptoms and diseases are aU caused by the irritation from these poisons, which it is the duty of the kidneys to remove. No medi- cine in the world has ever equalled Doan's Backache lid- ney Pills as a cleanser ef the blood and system -from such impurities. (3) They are accurately made by elaborate machinery, from the best and purest veget- able extracts, and the ingredi- ents 88 thoroughly mixed that the strength of each and every pill is uniform. It is act a new medicine, but has been in aGO by the (Quakers for seventy years. Its fame is increasing by leaps and bounds, owing t. the marvellous cures of the severest forais of kidney disease.

ST. ASAPH (FLINT) RURAL DISTRICT COUNCIL. THE WAEN HOSPITAL. The monthly meeting of this Council was held on Friday, Mr R J Williams (Rhyl) presiding, and Mr W Conwy Bell (Rhuddlau) occupying the vice chair.
THE WAEN ISOLATION HOSPITAL. NOT TO BE PERMANENT. The Medical Officer (Dr Lloyd Roberts) recommended the appointment of a superin- tendent and other officers, the establish- ment of telephonic communication between the hospital and a doctor's residence, and the provision of an ambulance, wash-house, and laundry, besides the carrying out of y Z, other improvements he considered neces- sary his estimate for furnishing, &c., amounting to 2119, and for other purposes £ 78. The Clerk said he failed to see where the doct r's economy came in. It would be much better and a considerable saving if they got things as occasion arose. The Vice-chairman reckoned that if the Council adopted the Medical Officer's report it would mean an expenditure of something like A;500 to carry it out thoroughly, and this he was sure they were hardly likely to do on a temporary hospital. The Chairman was of the same opinion. The Vice-chairman, continuing, said he wanted to ask one question, namely, what was the understanding when The Nook was purchased ? His impression was that it was for the isolation of smallpox cases only, but judging by the report now before them it appeared as if it were to be a permanent affair. The Chairman As far as I understand it that was not to be the case. Mr Morgan agreed that the understand- ing arrived at was that it should be only a temporary hospital, and for smallpox cases only. As the County Council .had offered to contribute a moiety of the cost he anticipated they would get a grant from that source of about 1:150, seeing that the hospital so far had cost them over £300. His impression was that if in the course of a year or so it was found that smallpox was dying out of the country they should seil the property and refund the grant rom the County i Council. The Vice-Chairman did not see under the ciccamstances how they could entertain the 'doctor's proposals at all, and as they lived in a civilised; country surely they could get whatever they might require 'from Rhyl or St Asaph at very short..notice. I The Chairman We are informed that smallpox is dying out. Mr Morgan: For the tirae being I don't think it necessary to spend another sover- eign on the hospital. think it necessary to spend another sover- eign on the hospital. The Clerk, having read tho letter stating on what terms the County Council were prepared to grant a mciety towards the establishment of a temporary hospital, stated that as soon as the Council had made suee of the Nook he wrote informing county I authority of the cost, which was between £333 and R331, including fixtures and solicitor's fees, so that they might obtain the County Council's grant in good time. The Medical Officer said he was very much under the impression that the County Council desired them to go in for a perma- nent infectious hospit 1 (" No, no "). The Clerk said he received a call from the Chairman of the Waen Parish Council last Wednesday, who told him he had instruc- t:on I om Major Birch to inform the Council that Sir Edward Cayley was prepared to take over The Nook, if the Council would sell, and find another site if such were required. The Chairman: He ought to have done that before we bougnt this place. Mr Bell said he understood the house was tenanted now, and they had made prepara- tions for any emergency. The Clerk replied that that was so, the term of tenancy having been agreed upon by the parties, and the tenant's duties specified in the event of an outbreak. Mr Thompson, having heard of Sir E Cayley's offer, proposed that the Council give him the option of immediate purchase, for he was sure The Nook would be nothing more than a white elephant to them. They had already been told that there was but the remotest chance of a case occurring in this district. Mr John Jones seconded, but the motion was not entertained, the Chairman and others being of opinion that it would be wiser not to part with the property at present. Mr Thompson But, What is not need- ful is dear at any price," so the saying goes. The Clerk stated that, but for illness at the last moment, Major Birch (Sir Edward Cayley's agent) meant to have attended this meeting to lay the offer before the Council. Questions were asked as to what site Sir Edward proposed to offer in exchange for The Nook, and the reply was Bontsychtyn, in the parish of Tremeirchion. The Chairman: Let us remember that a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush," and let us keep the hospital we have for the present, after all the trouble we have been put to. This was eventually agreed to, and it was agreed that they would not adopt tho Medical Officer's proposals, but take action if there was any need to use the place. THE EDUCATION BILL. A circular letter was received from the Rural District Councils Association, asking the Council whether they approved of the additional expense upon the rates caused by the Education Bill now before Parlia- ment; (2) whether they thought the Bill should be made permissive or compulsory (3) whether they thought the Rural Dis- trict Councils with a population of over 20,000 or even 10,000 should be allowed to become the education authority; whether they thought Rural Councils should have a voice in the appointment of an Education Committee. The Chairman suggested that the matter be left over until the discussion in the Board of Guardians had taken place, and this was agreed to. COETIA TOSTOII FOOTPATH. The Rhuddlan Parish Council called the attention of the St Asaph Council to the fact that the footpath in Coetia Postol road was in a very dilapidated condition. It was stated that the footpath was the property of the Council and should be repaired bp them. The question was adjourned in order that Mr R Morris, Hendre, might be present, he being one of the users of the path. WORKMEN'S DWELLINGS. It was decided on the motion of Miss Bennett, seconded by Mr Thompson, that Tnesday, June 2nd, be fixed to hold a joint meeting of the Council and the represent- atives of the Parish Councils as to the provision of workmen's dwellings, and it was agreed that all the members of the I Council should attend. WATER FOR THE FORGE, RODFARI. Mr Pennant wrote stating that he intended providing a water supply for the Forge district, Bodfari, and that no expense Mould be thrown on the rates. The Chairman said he was sure they were all very thankful to Mr Pennant. DIPHTHERIA AND SCARLET FEVER. It was reported that during the month two cases of diphtheria had occurred, namely at Glanravon and at Rhuddlan and that scarlet fever had broken out at Dyserth and Meliden, one case in each parish. It was stated, in answer to various questions, that the diphtheria oases would not be traced to the water supply of the villages concerned. Commenting on the removal of scarlet fever cases from one place to another, as had been clone with one case recently brought to Meliden from Rhyl, the Chair- man thought; the Medical Officer ought to do all in his power to prevent such removals. The Medical Officer replied that the fact of such happenings showed the need for a hospital, though the Council would not listen to him. Replying to the Vice-chair- man, he said there was nothing to prevent a case being removed from Rhyl into any part of the rural district, though they might grumble at it. Further correspondence was read, in- cluding a letter from the Local Government Board in connection with the proposed fire hydrants for Meliden and Dyserth, action baing again deferred for further informa- tion. The remainder of the business was of a routine character.

A TANGLED ARGUMENT. The opposite of a good thing is not neces- sariiy a bud thing, neither is there any reason why the reverse of that which is bad ^houid be good. To defer our duties, to put oil till to- morrow that which should be done to-day, is unquestionably bad and it would therefore seem that to do to-morrow's work to-day, and so get in advance of one's duties, must be corresponding'y beneficial. But the argument won't work. Take the case of the drunkard who reprimanded his friend for his sobriety. Quoth the bibulous one You lazily defer drinking until you are thirsty, whereas I drink in order to prevent myself becoming so." Superficially considered, this sentence beems to proclaim industry, but the policy it reveals invites criticism. But though duties cannot always be advantageously forestalled, calamity may, and very frequently is, averted. To cure an ill is good, to prevent it is better. The most healthful among us are by no means those whom Nature has endowed with the strongest constitutions on the contrary, they consist for the most part of the folks who know how to take care of themselves, a wisdom which the robust frequently lack. Being well provided with a good thing, they are commonly lavish of it. Wiser in her day and generation is Mrs. Mary Price, of Westley, Stapleton, near Shrewsbury. Mrs. Price has not suffered from any really serious illness, but was some time ago well on the road to do so. "Often," said Mrs. Price, on 10th January, 1902, "I have had bad attacks of indigestion — the usual discomfort and fulness after food, followed by cutting pains in the chest and between the shoulders. At other times I have experienced a depressed, dull, worn-out feel- ing, and have been at a loss how to account for it. High-class professional advice, as well as numerous medicines which I tried, availed me nothing, and it was not until I discovered Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup that I obtained any lasting benefit. Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup cured me, and since that event I have taken the precaution never to be without a bottle of it in the house. Should I at any time feel in the slightest degree indisposed, or suspect a return of the old symtoms, a dose or two of Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup never fails to set me up again. It is a grand medicine, and I would like everybody to know what it has done for me." Facts are stubborn things in argument and not to be made away with, juggle with them how we may. It would be hard to find a fact that could illustrate better than the foregoing the wisdom ef taking things in hand betimesj particularly where health is concerned.
TRYDDYN. N ATIØAL SCHOOLS. — The managers and staff of these schools are to be congratulated on the excellent report of this year. H.M. Inspector's report was meat satisfactory, and both the mired and infant schools obtained the highest possible grant from the Education Department. The report runs as fellows:— Mixed School: "This school is in a very satisfactory state, and much of the work done is excellent. More modern maps are wanted." Infants School: The teaching in th,depart- ment continues to be careful and painstaking, and the efficiency of the school is well main- tained under Mrs Ellis. The new desks are a great boon."

ST. ASAPH BOAD OF GUARDIANS. The fortnightly meeting of this Board was held on Friday at the Board Room, St Asaph, Mr RLlew Jones (Rhyl) presided, and Mr Gwilym Parry (Denbigh) occupied the vice-chair. There were also present Messrs T Evans, J Kerfcot, J Roberts, Abergele; Hugh Williams, Denbigh; Edwin Morgan, Treuaeirchion; W S Roberts, Bodfari; R J Williams, Dyserth William Williams, Henllan R Griffiths, Llanfair Owen Owen, Cefn G Williams, Meliden; Robt Davies, Prestatyn; G F Gunner, S Perks, P Mostyn Williams, Mrs M Jones, Rhyl; R C Thompson, W Conwy Bell, Rhuddlan T Howes Roberts, Miss Bennett, St Asaph Thomas Lloyd, Trefnant; J D Jones, St George; and J Jones, Waen with Mr Grimsley (clerk). VOTE OF CONDOLENCE. On the motion of the Chairman a vote of condolence with Mr Gwilym Parry was passed on the death of his mother. THE MASTER'S REPORT. It was report that during the past fort- night 11 had been admitted and nine dis- charged, leaving 115 in the house as against 124 last year. There had also been 108 vagrants relieved. The Master stated that the members of the Elwy Lodge of good templars (Rhyl) had given a concert to the inmates and afterwards distributed tobacco. sweets and oranges. The inmates thoroughly enjoyed the concert and the gifts. It was also stated that parcels of papers had been sent by Mrs Easterby. On the motion of the Chairman, seconded by Mr P Mostyn Williams, the ladies and gentlemen who had given the concert, &o., were thanked for their kindness. THE CORONATION. The Chairman asked the Board to consider the question of how the inmates of the Workhouse would celebrate the Coronation. The master bad asked the question, and he would like it decided, that day. In other places the board had decided to give treats to the inmates, and to allow the outside poor Is each adult and úd for children. As the inmates had roast beef and plum pudding on all festive occasions the master had suggested that they should give them a knife and fork tea with sports afterwards. Mr S Perks said that he thought that they would be ill-advisud if they allowed such an auspicous occasion to pass without doing anything to celebrate the event. Every place in the country would have its celebrations and, he proposed that they should give the indoor poor a treat and allow the outside adult poor Is and the children Gd each in Coronation week. Mr Robert Davies seconded, and added that if they gave a knife and fork tea they would not have the question of beer raised. He did not think that the little extra amount would be greatly missed by the contributing parishes. Mr J D Jones proposed that the Board do not allow the outdoor poor anything. He was quite willing that the indoor poor should be given a treat, but those outside would be well looked after by the people in each parish. He would not spend one half- penny out of the rates for the outdoor poor. Mr W Jones seconded the amendment. The Chairman stated that the Clerk had received a letter from the Bosworth Union asking that the Board would give their I non-settled poor Is extra for Coronation week. Mr R J Williams agreed with Mr J D Jones, and pointed out that in each parish the poor would be well cared for, and the children would receive mugs. Mr Edwin Morgan also supported the amendment, and added that in some cases an extra shilling would be improperly spent. Mr W Conwy Bell stated that in Rhuddlan the old people chargeable to- the parish would receive a few shillings out of the Coronation Fund. Mr Perks hoped that they would not take a division on the subject. He did not agree with what was said about not giving the poor an extra shilling, as the total amount they would receive from all sources would not place them in a state of affluence. He was prepared to,-witlvdmw that part of the resolution affecting -the outside poor. On a vote being taken it was unanimously I decided to grant the inmates of the Work- iii
LLANRWST. TRAGIC DEATH OF A FAR)fEp--Dr Hughes (coroner) held an inquiry on Friday concerning the death of Mr John Williams, of Pantllyn- bach, a well-known Llanrwst farmer. The facts which transpired at the inquest proved the case to be a very sad one. It appears that Mr Williams had for some time been suffering from depression, Dr Evans, of Llanrwst, attending him assiduously. Deceased handed his wife his watch with the remark that he was going to see a neighbouring farmer. Mrs Williams asked him why he divested himself of his watch, and he replied that he did not want it. He eventually left the house. Seeing her husband late in returning, Mrs Williams went out in the direction of the farm indicated by the de- ceased, but she had not proceeded a distance of a hundred yards from the house when she was horrified to find her husband apparently strangled by a rope attached to a stake stuck in the hedge. She ran for- assistance, and a neighbour, David Lewis, forthwith appeared on the scene and cut down the body. The suicide was described as being of a most de- termined character. A verdict of suicide whilst of unsound mind was returned. De- ceased was 69 years of age. URBAN DISTRICT COUNCIL.—A special meeting of this council was held on Friday evening, Mr W J Williams (vice-chairman) in the chair. On the recommendation of the finance com- mittee, a general district rate of 5s 4d in the A was struck.—A lengthy report was submitted from a public meeting held recently to consider the question of changing the date of the monthly fair. The report recommended the changing of the present date to the third Thursday in every month, the Thursday follow- ing Abergele fairs.—Mr David Jones now pro- posed the adoption of the report.and suggested that the change be made in January, 1904, so as to offer plenty of time to acquaint dealers and others interested of it.—Captain Allard pointed out that a large number of the towns- people were against holding the fairs on Thursday, because it was their half-holiday. Mr David Jones rdplied that that objection had since been withdrawn.—Mr H J Watling, J.P., remarked that he did not know whether they were justified in dilly-dallying too much with that question, but he was of opinion that it was a question of too much importance for them to settle that evening in view of the small attendance at the council meeting. He therefore moved that the whole matter be adjourned for a month so as to secure a fuller council. Mr David Jones said he had no ob- jection to that course, and it was. agreed to.
house a treat on the two days set apart for the Coronation celebration. Mr Thomas Evans asked what steps the Board would take in those parishes where there was no treat. He suggested that the Parish Councils should be asked to take it up. Mr Griffiths replied that the Llanfair Parish Council had not, but they were too stupid to deal with it (laughter). Mr J D Jones: They have always been so (load laughter). Mr Thomas Evans then moved that the Parish Councils be asked to give all the poor Is if there was no public celebration in their parish. I Mr W S Roberts seconded, adding that nothing would be done at Bodfari. Mr Griffiths said that if all Parish Councils were as stupid as the Llanfair Council nothing could be done. Mr E Morgan asked if the money would come out of the rates. The Chairman replied that the Parish Council had power to deal with the matter. Mr R J Williams considered that it would be very unfair to ask the Parish Council to grant Is as it would mean that the Parish Council would decline to do so, as they would know that if they did not grant it the Board would probably do so. He felt that each parish would look after its own poor. Mr J Roberts said that the Abergele Parish Council had decided to levy a rate of in the t. Mr Thomas Evans said that in Abergele urban district there would be no rate, but the poor would be looked after by the committee. I A vote was then taken as to whether the I Board should ask the Parish Council to • report if there was any fund for the cele- bration, but the majority declined to pass a resolution. THE NEW INFIRMARY. A letter was received from the Local Government Board agreeing to the Board purchasing the land necessary for building the new infimary near the Workhouse. The plans had also been approved, subject to a few minor alterations. THE EDUCATION BILL. Mr Pi Mostyn Williams gave notice at the next meeting he would move that the Board protest against the Education Bill. AMUSING INCIDENTS. Several inmates, who were considered to be able-bodied, were brought before the Board and caused considerable amusement. One old lady, aged 81, wanted to go home to look after her son, who she said was subject to fits aod might faU in the fire. The Chairman: And who will look after you? The Old Lady I am old enough to look after myself (loud laughter). The Board, however, decided that she would beloetter kept in the Workhouse. An Irishman rejoicing in the name of Burke, of Rhyl,, asked for a second instal- ment of. relief to replenish his hawker'a basket, (but the Chairman told. him that-he was.r.er witty and so could earn his own living. Asked if he was more than 62 pears of, age the man replied, "I "na doable that" (ioud tanghfter). 81- .I. A third inmate from St Asaph was allowed to remain in the workhouse as it was con- sidered he was very useful i. the Work- house, taking the place of a woman in the laundry. Mr Howes Robert said ike man was very useful but awfully thirsty when at St Asaph (laugi ter). On being told that be sould stay in the Workhouse the man was filled with joy and declared as ho left the room that he would rather be in the Workhouse as he got plenty to eat and drink there.
