Consider for yourself whether a Pre- paration which has a Reputation in its own country and among its own people everywhere should weigh with you as a proof of its True Value and Curative Properties after twenty years of Growing Popularity, or an alien medicine, prepared by unknown foreigners, giving no name to its com- position, and only mystery to guide you THE QUESTION OF H EALTH. This is a matter which concerns you surely at one time or another especially when Influenza is so prevalent as it is just now. It is well to know what to take to ward off an attack of this most weakening disease, to combat it whilst under its baleful influence, and particularly after an attack, for then the system is so lowered as to be liable to the most dangerous of complaints. Q^WILYM "PJLVANS' QUININE jglTTfiRS Is acknowledged by all who have given it a fair trial to be the best specific remedy for dealing with Influenza in all its various stages, being a Prepara- tion skilfully prepared with Quinine and accompanied with other Blood Purifying and enriching agents, suitable for the Liver, Digestion, and all those ailments requiring Tonic strengthening and nerve increasing properties. It is invaluable when suffering with Colds, Pneumonia, or any serious illness or prostration caused by sleeplessness or worry of any kind, when the body has a general feeling of weakness and lassi- tude.

The coffin was beauti- fully made by Mr J Morris Davies, in whose hands the undertaking arrangements were also placed. SHAKESPEREAN PERFORMANCES. Denbighites had an opportunity last week of witnessing three of Shakespeare's best plays, viz., "The Taming of the Shrew," "Twelfth night," and Hamlet," performed by one of Mr F R Benson's talented Shakesperean Com- pany. Special mention must be made of Miss Eniel Leslie and Mr Baliol Holloway. As Katherine the Shrew," Miss Leslis's talented acting was immediately recognised, and throughout she represented the Shewish Kate in admirable fashion, being frequently loudly applauded. In the 11 Twelfth Night she splendidly represented the part of Viola," which is indeed a difficult piece of aoting. In Hamlet she took tha role of Ophelia," and her acting was again greatly admired. She put extreme feeling into it, and carried the minds of the audience csmpletely away. Mr Baliol Holloway suited the part of 11 Petruchio," in The Taming of the Shrew," splendidly. He is an extremely fine aotor, and captivated everybody. In the Twelfth Night he waa excellent in the role of Malvolio." It was in Hamlet that be was the biggest suocess. He put his very soul Into the part, and every phrase of it betokened great talent and an actor of the very first rank. All the others of the different castes were ex- cellent. Mr Burgess Wargrave ought to be mentioned, for he was indeed a splendid comedian in all the three plays. Unfortunately there were not v6ry good houses, due, no doubt, to the death of the King.
Mil Ormsby Gore's Seat. DENBIGH BOROUGHS ELECTION. PETITION WITHDRAWN AS THERE WAS "NO HOPE OF SUCCESS." On Friday as reported in these columns last Friday, at Shire Hall, Dorchester, where the election petition judges, Mr Justice Lawrance and Mr Justice Pickford, were sitting hearing the East Dorset petition, an application was made for leavo to withdraw the election petition of Mr Allan Clement Edwards against the return of the Hon. William George Arthur Ormsby Gore as a member for the Den- bigh Boroughs. Mr C F Gill, K.C., and Mr Hugh Eraser appeared for the peti- tioner (Mr Clement Edwards), and Mr Lewis Coward, K.C., and Mr Willoughby Williams represented the respondent (Mr Gore). Mr Gill, in making the application, re- marked that the electorate numbered 5,000. The number of voters who polled was-for the respondent 2,438, and for the petitioner 2,430, leaving Mr Ormsby Gore with a majority of 8. The count took place late at night on the night of the poll, and there was no recount. Four- teen ballots were rejected by the returning officer. In that state of things a petition was filed asking for a recount and scrutiny, and an order was made for a recount. The recount took place when the petitioner and respondent were pre- sent, with the result that in the first it was found that one ballot paper which be- longed to the petitioner was amongst the respondent's papers, which reduced Mr Gore's majority to o. But on the other band another result of the recount was that four of the ballot papers which had been counted for Mr Clement Eawards were objected to for different reasons. The recount gave an opportunity for see- inc the papers that had been rejected by the returning officer. The result of the examination of the papers was t] at the petitioner had been advised that he could not proceed with the petition with any hope of success. In these circumstances application was now made to withdraw the petition. It had been presented, not as the result of any feeling between the parties, but under the circumstances it was almost necessary that there ahoald be a recount and an opportunity of seeing these votei. Mr Lewis Coward dealt with the facts and showed therefrom that thete was no foundation for the petition, and he asked for the respondent's costs. Their Lordships gave leave to withdraw the petition, allowing respondent (Mr Ormsby Gore) his costs.

On Monday last there passed away at his residence Mr Charles Jones, of Faenol Broper, alter a long illness. Up to a few yeara ago he was well known as one of the most practical farmers in the Vale of Clwyd, but owing to a mental breakdown the work of his extensive farm passed on to his son. He waR perhaps best known as Charles Jones, of "Criccin," near Rhuddlan, having been a tenant of the late Major Bowley Oonwy at that farm for many years. The funeral took place at Bodel- wyddan Churchyard to-day (Thursday) at 2.30. THE CONGREGATIONAL FESTIVAL. We are glad to notice that ao the recent Congregational Festival at Denbigh last week, the Bev W M Jones and Mr W Jones, Mill- street, took the leading part in the devotional services, and Master S Evelyn Thomas, also of this city, repeated a portion of the Scripture with excellent effect, which drew the remark from the chairman (Mr A Rowlands) that it was worth the trouble of coming there if it was only to have the pleasure of listening to the recitation accomplished without a single mistake. Mr J Simon, of Manchester House, was chairman of the committee responsible for the arrangements of the Festival.—Cor. MARRIAGE AT THE PARISH CHURCH. A very pretty wedding was witnessed at the Parish Church on Whit-Monday, when Mr Samuel Roberts, of the Bungalow, was united in the holy bonds of matrimony to Miss Mary Jones, of the Vicarage, and formerly of Bylchau. The nuptials were solemnized by by the Rev D 0 Owen, M.A. The happy pair have been the recipients of hearty good wishes and many useful presents. The wedding breakfast, through the kindness of Mrs W J Davies, was partaken of at the Vicarage. The handsome wedding cake was supplied by Messrs J E Price and Co., Liverpool House. DEATH OF THE OLDEST RESIDENT. On Thursday evening there passed away at the ripe age of 95-Mrs Elizabeth Davies, of the Alms Houses. She was born in the parish of Henllan on the 24th June, 1815, when George III was King, and thus having lived in six reigns, dying a few days after the Procla- mation of King George V. She leaves to mourn her loss one son, who spent some years in India in the service of the late Queen Victoria, a grand-daughter and great-grand- daughter, all of whom were most attentive to her until she passed away. She was in pos- session of her mental faculties almost to the last. She was laid to rest at the Cemetery on Monday last, when a large number attended to pay the last token of respect. The service was conducted by the Rev D 0 Owen, M.A. DEATH OF MR. WILLIAM LLOYD, PLASYNROE. It is with sincere regreb that we announce the death of Mr William Lloyd, of Plas-yn-Roe, which took place on Monday last after a few days' illness, at the early age of 28 years. He was out in pursuit of his calling as gardener on Thursday, but alarming symptoms developed, and terminated fatally as stated. Though not a native, he had lived athong us for 14 years half his alloted span—and was extremely popular with his fellow young men. Ever since the death of his father in 1906 he proved to bo the stay and support of his widowed mother, to wham his death came as a sad blow. He was a regular attendant at the Church Men's bible class. A report of the funeral, which took place at the Cemetery this (Thursday) afternoon at 2.30 will appear in our next issue. MEMORIAL SERVICES TO HIS LATE MAJESTY We are authoritatively informed that a memorial service in honour of Edward the Peacemaker will be held at the Cathedral on Friday at 2.30 p.m. There will also be a united service of the various Nonconformist bodies at the C.M. Chapel at 1.15 p.m. This service will conclude at 2.15 p.m. to enable the citizens as a whole to attend the national service at the Cathedral. After regard to the King's Proclamation that the day is to be ob- served as a day of mourning, the various places of business will be closed.—We are authorised to state that at the memorial service at the C.M. Chapel there will be no collection, but in deference to the wishes of all sections of the community, a collection will be made at the close of the national service in the Cathedral for the fund in relief of the sufferers by the Whitehaven Colliery disaster, thus rendering one of the finest tributes to the memory of our late beloved Sovereign, who was ever ready with practical sympathy in such dreadful calamities.
Presentation to the Rev. E. W. Powell, Late of St. Asaph. The Churobpeople of Brymbo met yester- day week to weloome home the vioar, the Rev Ê Worthington Powell, who had been spending a holiday in Italy, and to cele- brate the victory gained in what has become known as the 4 Brymbo school war.' The appeal to the Law Courts has finally established the Church character of the schools to maintain which the Vioar of B-tymbo and many of his parishioners have been fighting during the past few years. It was generally felt by the friends of the Church that the Vicar's services should be reoognised, and it was decided to give him a hearty welcome home and to present him with an Illuminated address in recognition of his work. At the meeting in the School- room several resolutions were carried with acclamation. Mr G A Powell, on behalf of the parish- ioners, presented the Vicar with an illu- minated address, and Mr James Jones then handed the Vicar the sum of 240, saying the amount subscribed was small consider- ing the large amount required to cirry out the alteration to the schools, but they asked him to accept it as a guarantee of their willingness to do all in tbeir power to assist him to carry out the heavy task that lay before them (applause). The Vicar suitably returned thanks, and said he was deeply grateful to them for t eir k ndness to him. They had achieved a signal victory. Their contention that the trust under which these schools was held was a Church truat had been assailed with all ort8 of violence. Their conten- tion had been proved to be an absclately sound cne by the decision of Mr Justice Swinfen Eady, and the decision came as a most welcome relief (applause). Con- tinuing, the Vicar said he wished to pay a tribute to the loyalty of the teachers, who risked their future and stood by the ship. They would have to spend from 21,000 to £ 1 500 upon the schools, because there was no appeal from the Board of Education with regard to structural alterations. The Brymbo school war, as it was called, was now over, and if they received justioe and 'air play they would do nothing to raJl" the standard of battle. The citizens will re-echo the ooilloludw words of the Vioar, who, when Vioar 0' ~| Asaph, was himself the embodiment justice and fair play—well done, Worth*1* ton!
