RUTHIN. Ruthin Revision Court. The Hon Richard Cecil Grosvenor, barrister-at-law, sat at the Ruthin County Hall on Friday irorning to revise the list of voters for the borough and the surround-' in,- parishes. The court was concluded in abenfc two hours, there being very little contention in respect of any of the claims and objections. The Conservatives were represented by Mr R Vincent Johnson (for the borough) and Mr C C Mofct (for the county), and the Liberals by Mr Walter 0 Jones (tor the borough), and Mr Gwilym Parry (tor t;:s county). There were also present, the town clerk (Mr Baldwin Griffith), the relieving officers (Messrs R A Junf's and G 0 Morris), and the assistant overseers of the various parishes, Messrs Ezra Roberts (Ruthin), John Jones, and Thomas Williams, Llanynvs. A claim for a vote in Divison 1 was made on behalf of Mr Joseph Morris Evans, plumber, 20, Clwyd-street. It was stated that he paid £10 a year for a shop and showroom, but as he paid no rates, the Revising Barrister decided against the claim. Mr John Stanley Cullen, la, Prior- street, claimed a lodger's vote, contending that he paid 4s a week for bedroom and sitting ronm. Mr Vincent Johnson objected, and argued that the rent was insufficient, and applicant had not sole occupation of the front and only sitting room in the house. The claimant ap- peared, and in answer to Mr Vincent Johnson, said the postmaster lodged in the same house, but took his meals in the kitchen. He did not Use the sitting room of which the claimant had sole use.—The claim was allowed. Mr W R Owen and Mr John Williams claimed as the joint occupants of a sitting room and bedroom at the Clwyd Terrace, Llaufwrog. Mr Vincent Johnson opposed on the ground that the premises were of insufficient value, and the claim was dis- allowed. Mr W H Hodgkinson, residing at the Park Place Hotel, claimed a lodger vote. Mr Walter 0 Jones objected on the ground that the vote should be a service vote and not a lodger.—The claim was allowed. Mr Walter 0 Jones objected to the vote of Mr Johu Garner, Voel View, Llan- fwrog, on the ground that he was not the tenant of the house, which belonged to his wife. The Revising Barrister held that a husband's claim could not be sustained, where his wife was owner, unless he produced an agreement of tenancy. The vote was disallowed. Mr E H Da vies, Ruthin Castle Stable Yard Mr Richard Davies, 41, Llanrhydd- street and Mr Peter Keating, 24, Rhos- atreet, all made claims, which were opposed by Mr Walter 0 Jones and disallowed on the ground that they bad not been in residence sufficiently long. Mr Harry Morgan, the Bothey, Ruthin Castle, made a claim for a vote in Division II. Mr Walter 0 Jones opposed, but the claim was upheld. Mr John Thomas, 28, Bortbyn-street, appeared in support of his claim for a vote in Division I, aud the claim was allowed. Claims for several occupiers and lodgers' votes were mentioned as having been agreed upon by both agents.

RUTHIN NEWS ITEMS ) over a Quarter of a Century Ago. [FROM THE Free Press, SEPTEMBER 24TH, L 1881.J Ruthin news 27 yeara ago did not bulk v lararfly in the estimation either of the public or the Press. Amongst the doings of the week, corresponding with this week in September, 27 years ago, we find the following The tradesmen met and agreed to close their shops at 7 p.m. from September to March 31st."—No such privilege in those days as weekly half holiday There was a grand concert at the Town Hall, with a fashionable audience, and the principal vocalist was 4 Miss Lloyd, of Rhagatt, the sister of Mr Lloyd, of Rhagatt, who was a beautiful singer and greatly sought after in the Vale in those days, for all musical projects. At the Board of Guardians meeting," the Chairman of the day was Mr H Powell Jones, of Greenfield, who long ago joined the great majority, and of the others pre- sent only three, two members and the clerk, are now alive, namely, Mr Charles Goodman Jones and Mr Henry Williams (the latter still a member), and Mr R Humphreys Roberts, the clerk. There were 182 paupers in the house, and 66 vagrants had been re'ieved in a fortnight and cheques issued for £9:1: relief. The principal topic of disenpsion was whether the Llanrbaiadr district Medical Officer, Dr James Caithness of Denbigh, knew Welsh enough to be continued Medical Officer in that country Histricl. Dr Caithness (alas, long since "passed beyond," and a monument to whom marks his resting place in the churchyard at Whitchurch) was a Scotchman, but he had quickly acquired a knowledge of Welsh, and in this particular discussion he received the championship of a thorough Welsh- man and a man of great influence at the Board-the late Mr Jchq Jenkins, who urged that it had been proved that Dr Caithness was sufficiently acquainted with Welsh to discharge his duties," and at the subsequent meeting he was re-elected. At the Petty Sessions in that particular week there was only one case, but it was sufficiently important for the defendant, John Jones, Lon Fawr, to be sent to the Quarter Sessions for a savage assault on and attempted robbery from James Mclntyre, of Acre, Llanarmon. The men were drinking together, prosecutor got very drunk, and was found in the back- yard at Park-place, having been kicked until he was insensible and covered with blood. The chief police witness was "Inspector Humphreys," long since gone. Then" the annual Volunteer prize shoot- ing" was recorded, in which the arrange- ments were made by that instructor of commanding presence and voice of power, who could tell a good story and recount deeds of valour in which he and equally plucky comrades had taken part for England's honour and glory-namely, Sergt Major Watts. In the competition for the Colonel's prize Corpl W Franeis was 1st and Sergt Charles Aldrieh 2nd. In the gentlemen's prize, Private Wiiiiam Jones came first, then followed Bandmaster Sergt John Edwards, Corpl Peter Evans, &e. The all-comer's prize winners were:— 1st, Corpl P Evans; 2nd, D H H Lloyd and 3rd, Osbert Edwards; whilut the ladies' prizes of £12 were won by D M Robert Lloyd, Privates William Jones, Edward Evans, Surgeon T G Jenkins, Sergt C Aldrieh, &c. "Tne County Court" was held this particular week, the presiding Judge being Mr Horatio Lloyd (not then Sir "), Judge Moss's predecessor, who seemed to have bad only one case to occnpy his attention, I in which Robert Williams, of the Waterloo Inn, claimed s65 frorn a relative, the whole thing arising apparently over a family squabble. The two lawyers who appeared have both passed away. One was Mr Ll Adams, the well-known Clerk of the Peace, and the other Mr Oabert Edwards, who then occupied a conspicuous position in the town, of which he was subsequently Mayor, but alas he in later days fell on evil times," became overwhelmed with debt, and at a subsequent period came within the meshes of the law.—The case in question was of an amusing character, and amongst other things the principal party was examined as to whether he remembered if he was drunk or sober. He replied Don't I just though, I do middling well; I was as sober then as I am now." The roars of laughter in court appeared to indicate that there was a query as to his then condition. However, the case was settled with a verdict of X5 for the plain- tiff, but defendant got a set-off of Y,3 8s. In that particular week a special meet- ing of the Town Council" is recorded when the Mayor, who the late Dr William Davies Jones, was congratulated on his recovery from a recent illness. The cnly two names of persons present familiar are Lewis Jones" (the well-known Ruthin Bard) and U William Jones." The most important topic of discussion was the price of the Gas Company was charging for gas to light the public lamps. The Council complained that the Company wanted J6132 19810d for lighting 72 lamps from September to May. Anyhow the Company and the Council squared the matter by the Company taking aClO off the previous bill and offering them some advantage as to the upkeep of the lamps. How does this com- pare with the charges to-day. The gentle- man who was Secretary of the Gas Company then (Mr David Jones) is, happily, with us to-day, and still ably manages the Com- pany's finances.

THOROUGHLY FATIGUED. At times my hands and legs shook so that I had the utmost difficulty in walking unaided. I had also distressing Palpitations, so bad that it was feared my heart was affected. I was unable to sleep at night and consequently arose in the mornings thoroughly fatigued. Food always disagreed with me, causing nausea and flatulence, and the lightest diet set up acute pains in the chest and shoulders. "My health became so irregular that I consulted a clever doctor, who told me that my troubles were due to Aruemia. He supplied me with medicine, but I did not seem to rally. Indeed, the many remedies I tried only aggravated my illness. ARRIVED AT A CRITICAL STAGE OF AN.S-rMIA. Languor gave way to a state of Acute Debility. I could not go upstairs without a rest at every few steps, and felt worn out. My cheeks and lips became waxen pale and my gums were quite bloodless. I arrived at such a critical stage of Anremia that it was decided to send me into a hospital. Fortunately at this stage my mother read of cures in cases like mine by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and she got me a supply. I took the contents of two or three boxes of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills before I derived any appreciable relief. I then felt more cheerful, my appetite returned, and | the nervousness was not so great.

GYFFYLLIOG. Fachlwyd Vegetable Show. On Thursday, the 10th inst., the third annual vegetable show was held at Fach- lwyd Hall. There was a very considerable gathering, and the display was of a praise- worthy nature. It is to be remarked that this show is maintained through the kind- ness of Mr and Mrs Curry, of the above hall. They go to the trouble of distributing seeds to the residents of the neighbourhood every year, and the produce are turned up at the show, where prizes are given for the best exhibits in tha different vegetables. The object of Mr and Mra Curry is to create a greater interest in the growing of vegetables in the parish, and to introduce into it plants which before were com- paratively unknown. The parishioners should be very thankful to Mr and Mrs Curry for the keen interest they take in the welfare of the neighbourhood. The doors were open from 3 to 7 p.m., during which the vegetables were exhibited in an adjoining shed, while around there were plenty of chairs to accommodate the visitors. Mrs Carry had also prepared excellent tea on the premises. Besides seeing the show Mr and Mrs Curry allowed all the people to go through their spacious and splendid garden, which is adorned with every species of vegetables Bod flowers. At 6 p.m. the prizes were given, the adjudi- cator being Mr D Thomas, Plas Isa, Llanfair D.C., who did his work with great satisfaction. The prize winners were classed thus:— Vegetable marrow—1, Mr David Jones, Pandy; 2, Mr David Roberts, Chapel House; 3, Mr John Evans, Gelli; highly commended, Mr Edward Jones, Ladur a Terrace; commended, Mrs Mary Lloyd, Ladur Terrace.

Llannwst Revision Court. A FRIGHTENED -ASSISTANT OVERSEER. I The Hon Richard Grosvenor held a revision court at Llanrwst on Tuesday. Mr Mott, assisted by Col Sandbach and Mr Albert Hughes, appeared for the Con- servatives, and Mr Gwilym Parry, assisted by Mr T R Jones, for the Liberals. The Conservative Agent complained that the list of voters had not been placed on ¡ the Glan Conway Church door. The Barrister (totbe assistant overseer): Did you place it on the church door ? The Assistaut Overseer: I always do. The Barrister: Give a straight reply. Did you or did you not on this occasion ? The Assistant Overseer (rising nervously and resting his bauds on the table in front of the barrister): I—I — The Barrister: Sit down, sir, and dou't stutter. Now calm your nerves and act rationally, and explain when did you place the list on the church door?—When the precept was made. The Barrister: And when on earth was that ?—About the end of July. The Barrister (to the Conservative agent): Did you see the list exposed on any of the chapel doors ? The Agent: Not on one. It was ultimately decided to request the rector of the parish to inform the assistant overseer in future if the lists were removed from the church door before the specified time.
RUN-DOWN AFTER THE SUMMER. A WIFE'S HEART PAINS, NERVOUS WEAKNESS, AND HEADACHE. CURED BY CHAS. FORDE'S BILE BEANS. Mrs. Susan Chapman, of London Road, Hertford Heath, Herts., for two years was terribly run-down and felb constantly sleepy, just as hundreds of women do after the hot, debilitating summer. "I had a constant aching between the shoulders," says Mrs. Chapman, feeling as if a heavy weight were pulling my neck down backwards. Every morning I felt very heavy, my head aching, and severe palpitation starting immediately on my getting out of bed and on to my feet. This fluttering at the heart caused me much distress at all times. Even in the day time, if anyone came to the house door my heart would leap and the blood run to my head and face the moment I heard the knock. I placed myself under doctor's treatment for some time, but obtained no benefit. I took a few doses of Chas. Forde's Bile Beans. The action of Chas. Forde's Bile Beans was to make me brighter, and free me from the uncomfortable sensations in the head. My condition went on improving until the unpleasant symptoms all disappeared, and I found I wa3 completely cured." The medicine that restored the health of Mrs. Susan Chapman was the original and world-renowned Chas. Forde's Bile Beans, Is. lid. and 2s. 9d. Cheap substitutes never cured anybody.
THE COMMERCIAL ROAD HOG AND THE WORKING MAN.. I
Abergele Revision Court. SMART MOVE BY MR MOTT. At the Abergele Revision Court on Monday, before the Hon H C Grosvenor, Mr Mott, the Conservative Agent, gained a great advantage in respect of votes for the election of county councillors in the Abergele Division, where the patties are evenly balanced. He claimed transference from Division II to Division I for a number of gamekeepers and other estate employes, upon the ground that they held their cottages as quarterly tenants, and as evidences he produced the signed agree- ments between the agent of the estate upon which they worked and themselves. Mr Parry (Liberal Agent) said it was clear that the agreements had been pre- pared for a parpose. Mr Mott replied that they were entered into for the purpose of getting County Council votes for the men. R plying to Mr Parry, a forester on the Kinmel estate said that while he could be compelled to leave his employment at one month's notice he could retain his cottage for two months longer. The Barrister allowed the votes, and said that gentlemen could please them- selves as to the terms they made with their servants regarding their houses. ADVICE TO AN ASSISTANT OVERSEER. Mr Mott complained that the Assistant Overseer of Llanfairtalhaiarn had not pub lished an objection to a name in Division I. The Barrister said that he noticed that the Assistant Overseer published the original list with the word "objected" against the name. That was wrong, and he had to allow the vote, as the agents' objection was not published. The Assistant Overseer bad no right to object to Division I, having published the name. Mr Mott said it was rough on him. Supposing he objected to 100, he would lose all if the Assistant Overseer did not publish the objections. The Assistant Overseer said he did not publish the objection because the man had left. The vote was allowed, and the Barrister told the Assistant Overseer to learn his duties.
Denbighshire Teachers. THE RELIGIOUS DIFFICULTY. The annual conference of the Denbigh- shire Association of the N.U.T. took place at Wrexham on Saturday, when the retiring president, Mr S G Jones, Colwyn Bay, introduced the new president, Mr Charles Dodd, headmaster of the Victoria Council Schools, Wrexham. Mr H Lewis, Llangollen, was elected vice-president, Mr Elias Jones, Rhos, treasurer, and Mr E J Roberts, Denbigh, secretary. The Mayor of Wrexham having wel- comed the delegates, it was resolved That this meeting re-affirms its opinion that a scale of salaries is essential to the well-being of the teachers and of the cause of education in the county." It was also resolved on the motion of Mr Rees, seconded by Mr W M Pierce (Denbigh), That this meeting urges upon the local education authority the n- cessity for a representation of teachers on the Education Committee, and also the formation of a consultative committee composed of representatives of the Local Education Authority and of the teachers of the county, to meet periodically to discuss matters bearing on the work of education in the schools of the county." The meet- ing expressed its regret at the removal of Mr L J Roberts, H.M. Inspector, to Carnarvon. At the afternoon meeting Mr Charles Dodd delivered his presidential address. He dealt with the religious difficulty at some length. He said he firmly believed in Bible teaching, and be ventured to sub. mit a scheme, which many of his colleagues in common with himself did not regard with feelings ot pleasure, which provided for the admission of outsiders into the school. But there must be a general desire to yield on knotty points if this matter was to be settled. Probably this was their point, and he for one was prepared to yield. Roughly his scheme was (1) That the ordinary attendance for secular instruction should not commence until 9.45, but that the children assemble at 9 as at present. (2) That after allow- ing fifteen minutes for an opening service the remaining thirty minutes be devoted to religious or moral instruction. (3) That the scholars be arranged in, say, four sections, Church of England, Roman Catholic, Nonconformist, st-cularist, accord- iog to written request of the parents. (4) That the three religious bodies referred to be allowed to give, through regularly constituted teaching Boards, or com- mittees, religious instruction according to their respective tenets, and that the secularist receive moral instruction from their teachers. (5) That any member of the staff, who is noc otherwise employed, should be allowed to join one of these teaching boards, if desirous of doing so. (6) That there be full and absolute control of all schools, including the appointment of all teachers-by the Local Education Authority, in conjunction with the Board of Education. (7) That school buildings erected by voluntary contributions and vested in trustees should either be iented or bought by the Education Authority. He laid it down as a sine qua non that the school staff should retain the organisation in their own hands, the teaching only being done by outside bodies. The scheme appeared to him to meet fairly the de- mands of all parties-public control, denominational and undenominational in- struction, and freedom from religious tests. It meant, no doubt, considerable organisa- tior, and also self sacrifice, but the results aimed at appeared to be worth it. On the motion of Mr D E Rees, seconded by Mr Hugh Jones, It was decided—" That, inasmuch as education is a national concern and the burden of local rates becomes each year heavier owing to the ever-increasing duties imposed on the County Council, this meeting is of opinion that the grants from the Board of Educa- tion should cover all the salaries of teachers and working expenses of the schools, leaving the authorities to find the necessary money for providing and furnishing the school buildings." An address was given by Mr W A Nicholls, president of the National Union of T. uchers. In alluding to Mr Dodd's scheme, he ventured the opinion that it was the duty of the parents, if they desired their children to have religious instruction, to see that they had it. The parents should be responsible for thiss and not the schools. Mr Dodd replied that it was also the duty of the parents to see that their children attended school, but officers were appointed to see that they did do their duty.

FATTENING THE HAY CROP- Mr Ernest Parke records the results of his seventh years' experience in the improvement of poor grass land on his farm at Kineton, in Warwickshire. The unmanured portions of his fields continue to give small yields of poor hay- about lOcwt. to 12cwt. per acre. In one field the portion annually dressed with super- phosphate alon9 (3cwt. per acre) has this year yielded 281cwt. of hay per acre, and the portion dressed with nitrate of soda alone (ljcwt. per acre) has given 27cwt. per acre. Where both fertilisers are used together the yield has been 34cwt. of hay per acre-an increase of 23jcwt. over the natural yield of the land in return for an outlay of less than 25s. On another field where, owinc to difference in soil, Dr Dyer, who acts as Mr Parke's adviser, considers basic slag more suitable than superphosphate, very similar results are recorded, The natural yield of hay was 12jewt. per acre. Basic slag alone (5cwt. per acre) give 30ewt. of hay, and nitrate of soda alone (ljcwt. per acre) gave 28 £ cwt., while basic slag and nitrate of soda together gave 36Jcwt., being an increase of 24cwt. of hay per acre over the unmanured plot in return for an outlay of 30s. The average in- crease in yield from phosphatic and nitrogenous manure together on both fields over the seven years has been over li ton of hay per acre, but the hay crop in Warwickshire generally has been lighter than usual this year. Mr Parke considers that the quality of the herbage is best on the land receiving the mixed dressings. and the appearance of the manured and un- manured land, all of which is alike grazed dur- ing the autumn, affords during any time of year a striking contrast.
