Life was a perfect misery, as I was so depressed, dyspeptic, and weak. I have been treated by different Nervousness doctors, and tried nearly every patent •vr medicine, but derived a mere tem- Jnervousness porary relief. A- weeks ago a Nervousness friend from Carmarthen advised me to try Gwilym 'fans' Quinine Bittern, and I purchased a large bottle, but had no confidence then in its efficacy to do we any good. I am glad to say the effect haa been marvellous with me. 1 Iiom now in almost perfect health. I shall continue its use for a little while longer to prevent the illness returning. I can truly say that there is no tonic that I know of equa) to Gwilym EviLual Quinine Bitters, and you are at perfect liberty to publish this statement, as I think any person suffering from any nervous diseases will fiud a true friend in Gwilym Evans' Quinine Bitters if persevered with. I am, yours, Ac., HENRY TILLER. 7'=" T= GWflLYM EVANS' QUININE B .ITTERS, GWILYM EVANS' QUININE BITTERS • GWILYM EVANS' QUININE BITTERS' GWILYM EVANS' QUININE BITTERS' » VEGETABLE TONIC.

Carol Singing by Pupils OF RUTHIN COUNTY SCHOOL. An appreciative audience gathered in the j Brynhyfryd Schoolroom on Wednesday after- J noon, December 19th, to hear carol-singing by the girls of the Ruthin County School, in aid ol Dr Barnardo's Homes. The programme consisted of carols-ancient and modern— varied by recitations aud voc'l solos. The items, which were all appropriate to Christ- mastide, were well rendered and much enjoyed, particularly the excellent soloe by Olive Thomas and Gwladys Williams. The School- room, which was tastefully decorated, was kindly lent for the occasion by the Ven Arch- deacon Griffith. This is a new venture on the part of the school, but we see no reason why it should not become an annual entertainment for this good cause. The programme was as follows:—Carol, "Good King Wenceslas." Carol, The Boar's Head." Recitation, The Legend Beautiful," Ireae Roberts. Solo and chorus, In JExcelsis Gloria," Carrie Jones. Song, "Ring out wild Bells," Olive Thomas. Carol, Tri ym ni o'r Dwyraiu Draw," Lower School. Solo and chorus, Come to the Manger," Gwladys Williams. Recitation, Ode on the Nativity," Gwen Pierce. Carol, From Far Away." Upper School.

GOVERNOR OF RUTHIN COUNTY SCHOOL. The period for which Aiderman Ezra Roberts had been elected as a representative of the Council on the Governing Body of the County School having expired. The Mayor, in moving the re-election of Mr Ezra Roberts, said he did so for the reason that Mr Roberts had taken deep interest in education for a good number of years. Nobody knew more than he (the Mayor) did, having been otiatriu,i I the extinct School Board, and since then vice-chairman of the Grouped School Managers at Ruthin, about Mr Ezra. Roberts' qualifications j in fact, there was no I person in the neighbourhood better qualified than he Was to represent the Council on the Governing Body of the County School (applause). Mr Francis Dowell seconded the motion, which was carried unanimously. Mr Ezra Roberts thanked the Council for their continued COnfifience in him, having acted now as the representative of the Council for a period of 12 years. lie would not have felt angry if the Council had elected anyone else. His interest in the County School was quite impersonal. He supported the school simply because he wished the girls in the neighbour. hood to have the advantageg of secondary education close to their doors (hear, hear). He might add that the school had become a very successful one (hear, hear). It started first with provision for 60 scholars, but at present the number on the books was within three of 100 (applause). That number was likely to become more numerous still. He was much obliged to the Council for their expressions of confidence in him (applause).
RUIHIN eras SHOW. The twenty-fourth annual Christmas Show in connection with the Ruthin Show Society was attended with every success at Ruthin yesterday (Thursday), when the exhibits compared favourably with those of previous years, and the promoters are to be congratulated upon the success of the project. Although numerically the entries were not so motny as in last year's show, the quality and soundness of the exhibits were excellent and were highly spoken of by the judges. In Col Mousley, of Nant- clwyd, the show found a most excellent president, whilst the vice-presidents were the Mayor of Ruthin (Councillor T J Rouw) and Mr T Leathes, Wern Fawr. The hon solicitor and auditor was Mr W 0 Jones the hon auctioneer, Mr George F Byford the hon veterinary surgeon, Mr T J Simpson and the hon treasurer, Mr W T A Jones, L & P Bank. The manage- ment committee, who are to be congratu- lated upon their harmonious working together, were :-Messrs L G Thomus, E Tegid Owen, J Kellert, T H Rigby, G F Byford, J R Davies, Johnson (Bodyn- gharad), W Leathes, E W Davies, R H Williams, T J Rouw, R Roberts, J J Butler, T D Ellis, T Loathes, J H Simon, W Roberts, 0 Lewis Jones, L Smith (Fulbrook), R Mostyn, H Forder, R Forder, R Beech, G Brocklehurst, J Lloyd Roberts, T Mossop (Wern Fawr), R A Jones, J K Williamson, Hugh Williams, J E Morris, J Williams, H E Aldrich, R T Hughes, R H Jones, J Ellia, and J Williams. This year's secretary was Mr W G Hodgson, Florence House, and the energetic and praiseworthy manner in which he performed his arduous duties is deserv- ing of all praise, whilst the work of assist- ant secretary was equally well performed by Mr J LI Roberts, the Conservative Club. The judges and stewards (under Mr J J Butler, of Graigfechan, who ably superin- tended the show during the day) who gave every satisfaction, were :—Dogs, Mr T R Stretch, Ormekirk poultry, &c., Mr Proud, Southport butter, eggs, and dressed poultry, Mrs Roberts, Lleweni hall honey and sticks, Supt Woollam, Llanrwst grain, &c., Mr Thomas Jones, Plas Coch needlework and drawing, Mr C A Jones and Miss Jones (Llwyfen) horse shoes, Mr J Jones, Denbigh bread, Mr Thomas, Rhyl. Soon after one o'clock, the President, who was accompanied by Miss Mousley, in an interesting speech, declared the show open and wished it every success. Follow- ing upon this Col Mousley presided at the luncheon, admirably catered for by Mr and Mrs E Tegid Owen, at the Castle Hotel, and was supported at the top table by Miss Mousley, Mrs Roberts (Lleweni), Mr Edward Lloyd of Rhagatt, Mr T H Stretch (Ormskirk), the Mayor of Ruthin (Councillor T J Rouw), Mr J J Butler (Graigfechan), Mr Hodgson (secretary), and others. Following upon the loyal toasts, Mr Edward Lloyd ol Rhagatt, pro- posed The success of the Ruthin Shows Society," and in response the President, who was musically honoured and cheered, as well as Miss Mousley, dwelt upon the advancement made in agriculture, both scientific and practical, during recent years. What was required now was a little more unity, cohesion and enterprise. The Judges" were toasted on the motion of Mr J Kellett, and responded to by Mr Stretch. The Mayor of Ruthin proposed the Health of the President," which was heartily received, and referred also in eulogistic terms to the Secretary of the show, whom it was hoped would remain so permanently. [Space will not permit the publication of the speeches.—Ed.] A novel feature in this year's event, and one which will materially enhance the finances, were the cinematograph exhibi- tions by Messrs Archer & Sons, Liverpool,! in the Assembly Rooms, added to which there were solos (sentimental and humour- ous) given by well-known local artistes. This department was under the stewardship of Messrs L G Thomas, R A Jones, and Rowland H Jones. A honorary exhibit worthy of mention was a collection of Naples Mandarines grown by Sir J K Williamson (a brother- in-law of Mrs Williamson, Derwen hall), grown in his garden at Naples.

Lord Cochrane's M ijority. Proposed Celebrations. A public meeting, convened by Mr P Davies, chairman of the district council, was held at the Town Hall, on Tuesday evening, to con- sider what steps shall be ttken to celebrate the coming of age of Lord Cochrane, eldest son of the Earl and Countess of Dundonald, Gwrych Castle, Abergele. The vicar (Rev T Jones) was voted to the chair, and, after explaining the object of the meeting, said thtt it was not necessary for him to sing the praises of the Gwrych Casole family that evening. They all kuew what a great soldier and patriot Lord Dundonald was. When England was in danger during the late great war, he responded to the call to proceed to South Africa, and distinguished himself greatly there. If another occasion should arise (which God forbid) he would do it again to uphold the honour of the British flag (cheers). He hoped they would celebrate the coming of age of Lord Cochrane in a manner worthy of the family and the occasion (applause). Mr. John Edwards, Tanyfron. said he had much pleasure in proposing that they celebrate this happy event in a manner worthy of a son of a great man. He (the speaker) had had a great deal to do with different functions con- nected with the Gwrych Castle family. He was secretary of the celebration committee when the Earl and Countess were uiirridU. He thought it a step in the right direction to inculeate a feeling of good-will towards our neighbours. He therefore proposed that they moved in the matter as a testimony of tneir respect for Lord and Lady Dundonald. Mr Hannah seconded. Mr J Pierce in supporting, said that was in the happy position of knowing Lord Coc-h,-ac intimately. He wculd assure thcni tnac ho was a gentleman in the t,ue sense of the wo d (applause). Wherever he (^r Pierce) had been in his company his one ambition always was to know personally everyone he met, ricn and. poor alike (applause). The following were then elected as a com- mittee:-Idiss GitVOS, The Vicar (chairman), Messrs G T E\"l'aS (treasurer), E A Crabbe (secretary). J Hannah, J Edwards, Pierce Davies, J Pierce, Edward Williams, H Bed- ford, G PerkinS, W H Jones, (plumber), W H Jones (witolmaker), J C Knight, L B Rogers, J R Ellia, J Williams, Harp Ina J Fletcher, D G RobeJfs, H E Pritchard, L Davies, b H Harrison.
