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 Nprvnnonpw medicine, but derived a mere ,tem- I erVOUa ss p0Tary relief. A few weoks ago a NerVOUSneSS friend from Carmarthen advised me to tryGwilym Evans'Quinine Bitter*, and X purchased a large bottle, but had no confidence then iu its efficacy J Nervousness friend from Carmarthen advised me to tryGwilym Evans'Quinine Bitter*, and X purchased a large bottle, but had no confidence then iu its efficacy J to do me any good. I am glad to say the effect has been marvellous with me. I am now in almost perfect health. I shail continue its ui-e 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 Evans' Quinine Bitters, and you are at perfect liberty to publish this statement, as I think any person suffering from any oarvous diseases will find a true frivnd in Gwilyip Evans' Quinine Bitters if perseverod with.

Mr Robert Edwards, carrier, Lenton-pool, was proceeding down Vale-streat with a horse and lurry, yesterday (Thursday), when, owing to the slippery state of tha road, the lurry started to tkid, and Mr Edwards, in trying to check its progress, came violently in contact with the poles outside Mr T Pierce Hughes' shop. The bottom pole broke in half, with the result that cross-bar came down upon him and caused a severe gash on the forehead. DANCE. The annual dance in connection with the Denbigh Philharmonic Society was held at the Town Hall. on Friday evening. There was a vary large company present, and a most enjoyable eveDing was spent. In face of the fact that the Denbigh Infirmary Ball had been held the night previous, the floor was in excellent condition. The musio was supplied by Mr C M Humphreys' Band. Light refreshment was supplied during the evening. THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS. The holidays passed off extremely quiet in Denbigh. On Christmas Day the usual services were held, and in the afternoon and evening a competitive meeting was held in the Drill Hall. There was also a football match in the afternoon. Boxing Day was very dull, there being nothing on only a football match It is a pity that there is not some concert or something of the kind held on Boxing Day, as there is nowhere to go to to spend the evening. The want of somewhere to go to was keenly felt by many. CHRISTMAS SERVICES. At 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. Holy Communion was celebrated in Welsh and English at St Mary's and St David's Churches, whilst morning service was held at both Churches at 10.30. At 5.30 evensong was sung at St D<*vid'a Church in English, whilst at 6 evensong was said at St Mary's in Welsh, followed by carol singing, un4e, the leadership of Mr W M Pierce, the organist. All the services were of a joyous nature, and were largely attended. St Mary's Church had been tastefully decorated.—A service was also held at the English Presby- terian Churoh, when the Rev D E Jenkins, pastor, officiated.-At 10 a.m. a prayer meeting was held at the Pendref (Wesleyan) Chapel. C DAY AT THE ASYLUM. Christmas day was well reooguised at the Asylum. The various halls and wards of the Institution had been most tastefully decorated, and presented a very gay appearance. The Patients enjoyed a hearty dinner of roast beef and plum puddings, and also in the afternoon a delicious tea. In the evening the usual Christmas dance was held, and a large crowd, as visitors, partook in the evening's enjoyment whieh took place in the spacious new hall. During the interval, Masters John Henry and Gwilym Jones, Hall-square, gave a song accom- panied by the mandoline and banjo. A song was also rendered by Dr Cox; after which a duet was given by Miss L Hall and Mr C M Humphreys. Mr J Lloyd Williams acted as aooQBipanist during the evening. Following upon this, the usual distribution of sweets, oranges, &c., to the Patients took place. A most ebjoyable evening was brought to a close with the singing of the National Anthem. THE SNOW STORM. The prospects of a white Christmao" were realised this time, for on Christmas morning the roofa were white owing to the snow and hail which had fallen the night previous. After the fall a slaarp frost bad set in, and the roads in Bome places were quite slippery. The day was very cold, and in the evening there was another heavy fall, which continued for the best part of the night. On Boxing Day the ground was thick with snow, and the prospects for the football match looked extremely gloomy. But the oommittee and groundsman of the Denbigh Town Club had the snow cleared UD and carted off the playing area. About 2 o'clook it looked as if their labour had been in vain, for another heavy fall was experienced. This, however, did not last long, and it soon cleared up again. During the evening snow fell again in a blizzard, and covered the ground to the depth of three or four inches. Snow- balling was in full swing. The roads on Thursday wera vary slippery, and it was nith difficulty that people were abie" wjilk, let, alone the horses, Snow and hft.il again fel|,» during Thursday, and afterwards a frbaw set in i
The Centenary of tha Infirmary. — PROPOSED CELEBRAIUN O THE EVENT. At the Town Hall on Saturday, a largely attended meeting was held for the purpose of making preliminary arrange- ment for holding a historical pageant next year at the Castls in aid of the funds of the Denbighshire Infirmary, the centenary of which takes place next year. A suggest- ion was made some time ago by Col Heaton of Plas Heaton, that a historical pageant within the ruins of the old Castle would be a fitting celebration of the event, aud the suggestion seems to be heartily sup- ported by influential persons, not only in Denbigh and neighbourhood, but in the county generally. The meeting on Satur- day was convened to test the feeling of the public on the matter and, as already stated, to make any arrangements necessary to start the rnoveneut. The Mayor was voted to the chair, and amongst others present were Col and Mrs Hpatm and Miss Mary Heaton, the Rpctor. A derman James Hughes, Councillors S T Mi ler, J Morris Davies, F B CloUi.'h and W lliam Parry, the Rector of Heijllaii (Rev H Humphreys), Mrs Frank Wynne, Mi s WYLn", Miss Gold Edwards, Messrs J P Lewis, F Burton, A Foulkes-Roberts, the, Town Clerk (Mr J Parry Jones). Col Heaton, who convened the meeting, said he had taken upon himseif the responsibility of initiating the movement, ahd had received most encouraging letters from personal friends and others promising their support and co-operation (hear, hear). FIrst If .11, he wrote the Mayor and Town Council and they appeared to have taken it up very enthusiastic Ily (hear, hear). Subsequently be wrote to Mr F R Ben?on, the Shakespearpan actor, who had organ- ised pageants in other parts of the country. He Tisited Denbigh and the Castle. Having seen the latter, he also became enthm astic over the subject. The idea now wig to rely upon county and other recor Is, and present in the Castle a series of historical pictures in which the people of the neighbourhood would take part (hear, hear). Mr Benson advised that a large committee be got together, and that out of this sub-committees be appointed. A number of letters were then read from persons unable to attend the meeting, and amongst those who wrote were Messrs R E Hughes, Denbigh EO Watkin Davies, G»nrge Cornwallis West, H R Hughes, Kin in*-1 Stauley Weynun, Lord Mostyn, Col Mesham, Dr J R Hughes, Messrs R Humphreys Roberts, C Cottom, Ellis Willi. •m«, Lady Dund »nald, LadyNtyt r Leyland, Sir W Williams Wynne, Mr A 0 Evans, the Bishop of St Asaph, Mr Cement Edwarls, M.P., the Duchess of W -tminster, Mr Thomas Williams, Lieges- g, all of whom thought the idea a capital on-j and promised the movement thfir heartiest support. I Col Cornwallis West, in his letter of apology, was doubtful whether a large pageant could be carried out successfully in so small an area. He also stated that a guarantee fund of at least £3,000 should be established. Col Heaton said that the pageant would not be on such a large scale as those carried out at Warwick and Sherbourne, and that the expenses wuuld be correspond- ingly smaller than in those places. The Mayor liben invited a proposal, and The Rector moved "That this meeting approves of Col Heaton's action, and endorses ibe same, and thanks him for this further proof of his interest in the welfare of the town and its inhabitants." In support of the motion, Mr Davies said no worthier object could be had for calling t!e meeting together than the one Col Heaton had in view (hear, hear). The Castle, in his opinion, was peculiarly suited for such a pageant as the one suggested. Indeed he did not think the people of Denbigh were making halt enough of their grand old Castle (bear, hear) and a historical pageant would assist very materially in bringing the tuwn and this splendid old ruin to the notice of the public in different parts of the country (applause). Mr William Parry seconded the motion, which was carried amidst applause. ( Tho Mayor moved, and the Rev James Charles seconded, that the financial pro- J ceeds of the pageant be for the benefit of the Denbighshire Infirmary. Mr T J Williams (Colwyn Bay) supported, and expressed a hope that the pageant would be a great suooess. It was a sorrow- ful fact, in his opinion, that the Infirmary G,)vernors should year after year be at their wits ends as to where to find- the necessary funds to carry on such an excellent Institution, and anything that would assist in forming the auoleos of a reserve fund would be a real help (ap- plause). The motion was carried with acclamation. The Mayor then moved "That this meeting, fully representative of the Denbigh Town Council, and other public and eduoational bodies aad persons con- nected with the district, approves of the proposal to hold a pageant illustrative of the town's historic past in tho autumn of next year in the Castle grounds, and resolves itself, with power to add to its number, into a general committee to en- deavour to carry out the same." In sup- port of the motion the Mayor said the Town Council reeeivod the suggestion made by Col Heaton with great readiness, and he was quite sure that every member of the Council wvllld do his utmost to support the movement (bear, hear). Mr F Burton seconded the motion, which was supported also by Sir William Bailey (Manchester), Mr D S Davies, Mr William Parry, Mr D H Davies, and Mr Harrison Jones. It was carried unanimously. Mr J Harrison Jones moved, and Mr James Hughes seoonded, that the folk-wing be invited to become presidents of the movementCol Cornwallis West, the Mayor, Col Mesbam, and Mr J P Lewis. Col Heaton moved that the names of the High Sheriff (Col Parr Lynes) and the Chairman of the County Council be added to tne list. Before putting the proposal to the meet- ing it was agreed to defer the apP°iatojent of presidents to a future meeting. Q$> the motion of the Town Clerk, seconded by the Rector, Ool Heaton was unanimously appointed obairman of the general committee. In thanking the ting for this ex- pression of confidence in him, Col Heaton explained that the firs- suggestion in favour of holding a pageant 104ime from his sister, Miss Mary Heaton -a statement which was received with loud applause.

Capel Mawr Competitive Meeting. ANOTHER SUCCESS. The second annual Literary and Musical Competitive Meeting in connection with the Capel Mawr Sunday School was held on Christmas Day. This meeting was inaugu- rated last year in place of the usual sacred concert at Capel Mawr, and has fully justi- fied its existence. Last year only one meeting was held (in the evening), but owing to the popularity of the venture, two meetings had to be held this year. The meetings onTuesday were very well attended and at both meetings the hall was packed, a large number of people failing to gain ad mis- sion at the evening meeting. The stage had been nicely decorated for the occasion, anclo looked quite cosy. The afternoon meeting was presided over by the Rev. Evan Jones, whilst the ehair in the evening was taken by M r Robert Owen, J.P., Mayor of Den- bigh, who both delivered appropriate addresses during the meetings.
