DENBIGH SCHOOL BOARD I MONTHLY MEETING. The monthly meeting of the Denbigh School Board was haid at the Board Room on Tuesday, when the vice-einair m aa (Mr Thomas Roberts) occupied the chair, aocl there Wbre also present the R^v H Humphreys, the Rev Joseph Evans, the Rev H 0 Hughes, Mr Charles Cothm, aad Mr George Williams, with the clerk (Mr R Hasapbreys Roberts). ST. JOSEPH'S SOMAN CATHOLIC SCHOOL. The Clierk riad a lettsr from the BoarJ of E iucatiou stating the managers of the abovu school, which had been closed since last summer, now made an application for tOt< schosl torbe re-opened and plaosd oa the a nua; Rra^at list. The Educa-ion Boarij, before giving their consent, requested the Sutioui Board to favour them with any remarks they wished to make en the saiject. The Clerk etated that he had acknowledged the reciipt of the letter, and alsu said that the school had already boen re-opened with- out sending any intimation to the School Board, and before the application referred to above. Mr George Williams ask^d if the Board had any thIng to say with regard to the Catholic School, any control over it. The Clerk said not. The school was closed without any refelentle to the Board on accouat of the managers failing to secare a teaoher at that time. Mr George Williams said, snpposing the school did not come up to the standard, could they interfere. The Clirk said no, but the Education Deparimeat woald take ears of that. He then read a clause ia the Education Act shewing that the Education Department, if they theught the school was unnecessary, might rof use to pat it on the grant list. The Chairman said he believed the sehool had been closed for nine or ten months. It the school managars eoulddo that and re-open it what good were they as a Board in the matter. Mr Humphreys said he took it that they could not re-opea it if they as a Board represented to the Department that it was not necessary. Mr George Williams asked if it was not a fact that children summoned for oat attending the Board School ran away to the Catholio School, and so evaded presecation of the parents and their own regular attendance. The Clerk said it was so to a great extent The Catholic School was no doubt a sort of refage harbour to such children. Mr Cottom did not think that was sufficient reason for refusing the re-openieg of the achoel, as that argument would apply, not oaly against the Catholie School, but te some extent also would apply to the ether eehools, fer frequently, when reported for irregular attendance children went away from the Board or the National Sehoela, where their attendance had been so irregular, to the other school. Mr Humphreys intimated that; what they had to do was to ascertain how many Roman Catholie families there were who send their children to the school. The question the Board had to answer was whether the school was neoeasary. As a Board they had ample accommodation in the existing schools for all the Protestant children. The Chairman reiterated his previous statement, and said he had heard no oom- plaint of insufficient accommodation in the other schools of the town in oonseqnenoe of the closing for months past of the Catholic School. He did net think the children attending the Catholic School would number more than 25. He did not wish to stop them in any way carrying on the school, if it was done efficiently. Mr George Williaas thought if it hindered the attendance of the children at school they had better reply to that effeot to the Depart- ment. Mr Humphreys suggested that they should sead the approximate number of Catholio children to the Education Board, and let then decide for themselves. Eventually a suggestion of the Clerk was adopted, and he was instmeted to reply to the Education Dapartment that the Board weald not object to the re-opening of the Cathelie School, providing the maisagerii of the school weald undertake to retain it for their own children and not as heretofore allow it to be nsed as an "harbour of refuge for children attending the other schools, who went to the Catholie schools for a short time when prosecutions ware threatened far their irregalar attendance at the other schools of the town. APPOINTMEXT OF ASSISTANT IfASTBUS. The Board then proceeded to appoint two uncertifieated assistant masters for Love-lane schoele, for which the following applications bad been received:—J H Sellars, Penylan, Oiwastry D O Jones, Upper Bangor; Archie Morgan, Lydbrook, Ross-on-Wye; James Dreiaan, Totnes, Devon; Grotiu3 A James, Wetehpaol Martin C Jenkins, Caerphilly; J W Blake, Voutter, Isle-af- Wbita; N W Bevan, Pantyffynnon, Carnar- von; and J T Morgan, Aberystwyth. The Beard having gone through the list and studied carefully the oredafitiala and testimonials, the Rev Joseph Evans pr oposed, and Mr goorge Williams seconded, the election of Mr Martin C Jenkins, of Caer- philly tit fill one of the vacancies. Carried unanimously. Mr Cettom proposed, and the Rev H Humphreys seconded, the election of Mr Archie Morgan, Lydbrook, Roas-on-Wyn, tor the other vaeanoy. Carried unanimously. Both thtse youag men produced excellent testimonials, aad had done well in their previous examinations and school work. They were appointed at a commencing salary of .1:45, and Mr J T Morgan, Aber- ystwyth, was selected as reserve man in case the others for some reason did not accept, at a salary of £ 40, inasmaoh as he was younger aad leBs experienced. INCREASE OF SALARY. An application was received from Mias Hettie Parry, that now she had passed from ber artioloo to an assistant tsacher (3rd class Queen's Beholariihip), that her salary may be adjusted accordingly, namely £35 per annum. This was unanimously agreed to. LOVB LANE :BOYS' SCHOOL. ANNUAL HEPOBT. The fallowing report from the Board of Edueatisn on the Love-lane Sshcols was read "The instruction in this sohool continues to be imparted with marked thoroughness and intelligence. The suSjects of ioatraetion well correlated. Jnst before the end of the achoel year the school lost the service" of ? £ t'un,0,st earBe8t assistant teaohors— *L 7* e,hes' who died the result 1 k- u$UOea" Scholarship Examination in which he toak a second cia6S, was ?P that vigorous measures < Thi insPr<>ve the atfceDdano« I The total amOQnt of the annual grant was < .£20 8s 6d. It was mentioned that the fees grant was t £91108 Od. J The Clerk said ifc was the hicrhest prant < School coujd possibly attain, but by the 1 block grant" system they now lost 3d per E ( head as compared with the previous system of payment. Mr Cottom remarked that the Love Lane School was not the only sufferer leoally as the Boys National School suffered a similar loss by the change in the system of grant. Mr Humphreys remarked that they secured nearly E300 and that the School was more nearly self-supporting than most Schools. All the members expressed satisfaction that so excellent a report and grant had been obtained by the School. HENLLAN SCHOOLS: HAS THE INSPECTOR THE RIGHT TO ALTER THE PLANS ? The Clerk gave details of the work at Hen- llan School, which he, the Vice-Chairmaii, and Mr George Williams reported was going on excellently there was still about £ 680 cf the contract money in the hands of tne Board to finish the work. The Rev H Humphreys called attention to the fact that His Majesty s Inspector had re- cently paid a visit to the new school premises now in course of erection at Henllan, and had taken upon himself to alter the plans without in any way consulting or giving intimation to the Board, he had merely given his orders through the Schoolmaster and had, he under- stood, not even communicated with the Clerk. He considered a great want of courtesy had been shown to the Board. The Clerk said he had not received any com- munication from the Inspector, who had spoken to the Schoolmaster and Mr Wheeler, their fore- man, was at the works at the time. It appeared that the Inspector was greatly averse to a gallery which was in course of erection, and thought proper to have it removed before the work was further proceeded with. Mr Humphreys pointed out that the Educa- tion Department had had the plans before them, and bad approved of them. The Rev Joseph Evans He had no business to interfere with the building ? that cannot be his work. Mr Humphreys What I quarrel most with is that he should have given his orders to the schoolmaster and not to our clerk. Mr Cottom thought it was remarkable that the Inspector could thus alter the plans which had been sanctioned by the Department, and without referring the matter to the Board. Mr Humphreys said the Inspectors seemed to have fads of their own, and had no considera- tion for the ratepayers. A few years ago Mr Morgan Owen ordered them to provide galleries and various other things then directly this new Inspector came, he had entirely different views to his predecessor and they bad to go to the expense-of clearing them away. The Board generally considered that the proper course would have been for the Inspector to commnnictrte with the Board through the Clerk, and not order these alterations without any reference to the Board, leaving them to find it out through their own schoolmaster. Considerable other routine business was attended to, and a long list of absentees re- ported by the Inspector dealt with. ♦
SIGNAL SUCCESS FOR A NATIVE OF DENBIGH. We are extremely pleased to notice the gratifying success of Mr Edward P Nowell, son of Mr James Nowell, builder, formerly of Denbigh, and a nephew of our esteemed towns- men, Mr W Clwyd Pierce and Mr Evan Pierce. Mr Edward P Nowell, who is only 28 years of age, is an engineer in one of the celebrated steamers of the noted Liverpool firm of Elder Dempster and Co., trading to the West Coast of Africa, having for the last two years been second engineer. He has now at the earliest possible period, both as regards age and experience in which he could do it, gone in for his examination as First Class Eagineer, and he has succeeded, not only in doing it and gaining his certificate, but in doing it in honours and with special distinction to himself, and his success is really, under all the circum- stances, a remarkable performance, upon which we heartily congratulate our clever young townsman. We extract the following from a contemporary, dealiiag specially with maritime intelligence:- The Waliasey Mail Fa ys: We are pleased to see that Mr Nowell has gob his 'first.' Getting a first-class engineer's certificate now- a-days is no easy matter. Besides knowing all about marine engineering, practical and theoretical, a man has to have a good grounding in mathematics and chemistry, Chemistry, we suppose, is necessary with the use of refrigerating engines. How it is possible for a man's brain to hsld all these 'elogies passes our comprehension. Taking our marine officers all round, whether navigatica, or engineering, they are a splendid class cf men would that we could say the same of that disappearing class of maen -t,he old British tar."
THE LLEW LLWFYO MEMORIAL. The appeal for funds to erect a suitable memorial to the late Llew Llwyfo has met with a gratifying response. Mr M T Morris, who iias acted as secretary to the movement, has already been favoured with contributions kvhich, though insufficient to meet the estimated outlay, will justify the,committee in Jroceeding- with the work. It is intended that ;be memorial should partake of a distinctively Welsh character, and he e-sentially different ;o the conventional memorial-stones or columns. k well-known artist will be invited to furnish -omtiviltee with a suitable design on the listinctive lines indicated above, and it is mticipated that the column will be erected in jourse of the coming summer.
LUNACY IN NORTH, WALES. OFFICIAL REPORT. Dr Llewelyn Cox, the medisal saperin- tenieat »f tfte North Waits Counties Lunatio Asylum, lias prepared a vary tx haustive and interesting report ou the state oi lunacy in North Walts and tmat"rs con- nected with the treatmeut of maany ptrbons. It appears that 171 oases woro admitted to tte Denbigh Asylum during the year 1900, and of tbis number 134 were first admissions. Of the 171 casos admitted, 78 were scales aad 93 females. Tho t^tal number of paticats in the asymm at tfes ena of the ytar was 717- viz., 358 males Ootid 359 fomalns, Tais shows a reduction of four as compared with the corrtjBpoadicg period of the year before, which was the highest number attained m the history of the asylum. The average namber ot resident patients, however, was 724 for the year, as against 714 m 1699. With those boarded ia other institutions, the total number of patients under treatment was 892, an increase oi 31 as compared with 1899. Dealing wito the causes of intianit3, Dr Uox says that tho clinical history of the aamisci-ms for tbe past year indicated tha prtdomiaatiEg iiitiued,c-j of hereditary predisposition and tbe exi,stekee of prtvioas attacks as the chief causes of insanity. luherited insanity could be traotd to 20 per cent of tile male and .31) per cent of tha female admissions. In a large proportion of the above casts acute or Lsa active disorder of the iutellfcetaal faculties has been developed by the p-,eieifse of various extitiog and prejudicial iLiliitBced as aaversb eircumstano.o, aomestic afliiotioo, iil-laealth, and over-work. Lateajperafloe, eifchsr as a predisposing or cxoitmg cause, could be trace J to 14 males and 7 females. The per. centage of recoveries wera 46'25. a proportion whieh compared ver; favourably with that of the precedirg ytar, viz., 35'40, and it id eacouraging to note that M regards this Institution the proportion of recsovery iabt year exceeds the average ratio of tho Asylums of the country by 7-37. Out of a total of 36 aast out on trial to relatives, m man wore finally certified as reooveied and 13 women as relieved. Casualties and isjuries to patients had been comparatively few. The report deals fully with administrative and sanitary works during the year. Iu the FuRiale annex and at Glanywern accommodation has been found (pending the completion of the enlargements) for 73 males IIn i 100 females. Notwithstanding the distarbed condition by the building and other oparations aad the presence of many strange workmen thtre had only beea five escapes (men), but they W-ro saMy returned without iPj Ilry or mis- aiveature, bat two managed to evada capture for 13 and 8 davs respectively, having aucsessfully travelled to Pwllhali aBdCoaway without discovery. The changes amongst the staff were almost entirely caufined to junior and subordinate female attendants and servants and the changes due to matrimony, desire for change or more lucrative appointments, a-ad the retention of the older members of the staff had been of great value. Miss F Lloyd, the chief female attendant, having been ap- pointed to a more imptrtant and lucrative post at Cheshire County Asylum, her place was filled by Miss Mary Williams, who for several years had charge of the workroom ward. Miss Snssannah Evans, for many years in charge of the hospital ward, retired after 31 j ears' service with a substantial superannuation allowance. The males engaged in indoor and outdoor pursuits averaged 52 per eent, of whom 28 were in agricultural operations, and all the females possible engaged ia the domestic work or the workrooms. Amusements had been provided as heretofore, and during the winter a series of interesting dissolving views, illustrated by limelight and accompanied by descriptive lectures, were given by Dr Herbert. The health of the Asylum and at Glanywern had been during the greater part of the year on the whole satisfactory. There had been four cases (two of eaoh sex) of typhoid fever. Since the introduction of tbo new water supply colitis and dysenterio diarrhoea cases, previously so prevalent, bad shown a marked reduction, and the few cases occurring did not aasnme an aggravated form, and yielded eoeoessfully to treatment.. Pulmoasry phthisis continue to be a prominent siaroe of ill-health amongst the inmateb, and aoooanfc for 28 per cint of the deaths during the year. The report closes with cordial apprecia- tion of the zoaloas and capable aid rendered by his fellow officers,and other members of the staff," To Dr Herbnrt and Dr Owen and to Mr Barker he was particularly indebted for much valuable aid aad co-operation," aDd his grateful thanks due to the Chairman and Committee for the support aad encourage- ment afforded him in his endeavoar to faith- fnllv discharge his imnortant duties. ,#.

RHUDDLAN. Mr W Conwy Bell, Rhuddlan, was one of the Judges at the Colwyn Bay May Day Festivities on Wednesday. DEFICIT ON THE CHURCH HEATING APPARATUS. —The Vicar and Churchwardens are anxious to have the deficit of J37 now remaining on the heating apparatus account wiped off at once. To this end they have arranged a grand variety entertainment, to be held on Tuesday next, May 7th. The great wit and humourised Llewynog is to take part, and his wonderful gramophone is likely to cause a sensation. And in addition to some popular artistes, a mandoline party are to take part. It is hoped the move- ment will meet with the hearty support which it deserves. BODBHYDDAX HOME FARM.-We have much pleasure in calling our readers' attention to a large and important sale to be held at the Bodrhyddyn Home Farm, Rhyl, by Messrs Frank Lloyd and Sons, by instructions received from Mrs Rowley Conwy, who has let three of her farms. The 47 cattle and Cumberland bred dairy cows are of special merit; the 21 shire mares, geldings, one and two-year old colts raid fillies are a grand lot, and with few excep- tions are either eligible or in the shire stud book and well worthy of the attention of the most fastidious purchasers. The sheep include a fine flock of Shropshire, cross bred and Welsh couples, and should be well sought after by the lowland farmer. At the conclusion of the sale of the farm stock, Messrs Frank Lloyd and Sons will let by auction 260 acres of rich pasturp land. The sale commences at 12.30, and conveyances will meet trains at Rhyl and Rhuddlan to convey purchasers to the sale. Catalogues may be had from the Auctioneers, Wrexham, as per our advertising columns.

--=-C'7=:< RUTHIN POLICE COURT. At the fortnightly sitting of the magis- trates at Rutbin Police Court on Monday, Dr J R Jenkins presided, and other magis- trates present were Mr Stanley J Weyman, Mr George Cornwallis West, Mr G H Denton and Capt Cole. LICENCE TRANSFER. Mr A 0 Evans applied for a temporary transfer of the licence of the Anchor Inn, Ruthin, from Mary Hamnhrevs, the present licensee, to Henry Williams, Wern Ddu, St Asaph. He had given notice to the Superintendent of Police, who, he supposed, had made inquiries. Applicant was a well-known person and had resided at St Asaph nearly all his life. Three testi-, monials weee produced giving applicant an excellent character from Mr Edwin Morgan, J.P., Cae Gwyn, Mr Frank Bibby and Dr Easterby, J.P., Supt Hugh Jones said he had m:1de inquiries and he was perfectly satisfied with them. The application was granted. DRGXK ON LICENSED PREMISES. Joseph Wardle, hawker, Ruthip, was summoned for having been drunk on licensed premises, the Anchor Inn, Ruthin, on April 3rd. Mr A 0 Evans appeared for defendant, who pleaded not guilty. Sergeant Woollam said that on April 3rd, about 3 o'clock in the afternoon, he visited the Anchor Inn and saw the defendant in the bar drunk. After a while he got up and went into the back kitchen, and then showed signs of drunkenness. Cross-examined, witness said he did not see the defendant sleeping. He was quiet and there was no drink before him. Police-constable jtiowells corroborated. Sergeant Farrell, Denbigh, said on Friday last he served the defendant with a summons in Denbigh. The defendant j remarked that it was funny he had not had it before. Witness said he could not explain it, and then defendant said I hope it won't be much," to which he replied It depends how you plead." Defendant added I can only say the truth I was drunk." Joseph Wardle, the defendant, went into the witness-box, and said that on the morning in question he got up at five o'clock. The night before he had had a good deal of drink and bad a bottle with him. He went into the Anchor Ina, but did not get any drink there. He had four or five drinks that day, but he was not drunk. When he spoke to Sergeant Farrell he did not mean te say that he was drunk, but that he was in drink. Defendant was fined 5s and 5s Gd costs, and allowed a fortnight to pay. CHARGE AGAINST THE LICENSEE. THE CASE DISMISSED. Mary Humphreys, landlady of the Anchor Inn, Ruthin, was summoned for having permitted drunkenness on her licensed premises on April 3rd. Mr A (J Evans appeared for defendant and pleaded not guilty. Sergt Woollam gave evidence similar to that laid in the other case, and added that when he returned to the Anchor Inn in aboat five minutes Wardle was sitting in the kitchen. Nobody appeared to order him out, and witness said to him, "You are not in a fit state to be en licensed premises you had better go away." He replied All right, I will go." Witness returned afterwards, however, and found him still there. H* then called Katie Maddocks, who was in charge, aad told her that he was not fit to be on the promises. She replied, He has not been served here for a long time, and I will get him out now." Cross-examined He did not see Mrs Humphreys on the premises. There was no drink before Wardle, but there were empty glasses on the couater. Mrs Humphreys said on the day named she was out of the house from 11.30 until tea-time. Katie Maddocks was in charge in her absence. She did not see Wardle in the house that day. Katie Maddocks said that on April 3rd she was serving at the Anchor Inn instead of her sister. Mrs Humphreys went out abeut 11.30, and she saw her return about tafl-timA. Josfinh Wardle nsimp infn tla -¡: "1 1U..&at¿ Anchor Inn with Ishmael Roberts, who asked for two drinks, but as he had not the money for them she refused to supply them, and told them to go out. Wardle never spoke to her, and sbe had no oppor- tunity of knowing whether he was drunk or sober. Sergt Woollam came in, and said that if Wardle came in again she was not to serve him. She told the Sergeant that she had not served him, and when asked if she was certain replied, Yes they asked for trust, but I refused to give it to them." When she asked Wardle to go out he did not do so, but sat down. Cross-examined It was about 2 o'clock when Wardle came in, and it was about 2.35 when the Sergeant came there. Elias Roberts said he was at the Anchor Inn on April 3rd. He did not see Mrs Humphreys there but Katie Maddocks was in charge. He heard Ishmael Roberts call for drinks, which were refused. He heard Katie Maddocks ask Wardle to go out. When Wardle came in there was nothing to shew he was drunk, but some- time afterwards he had his head down in the bar and appeared a bit muddled. The Sergeant asked Katie Maddocks whether she served Wardle, and sho said that she had not, because of their mot having the money. Mr Evans said he submitted that he was entitled to a verdict on the merits ef the case "8 disclosed by the evidence for the defence, and beyond this he was undoubt- edly entitled to a verdict on the law as applicable to case of this kind. The summons against the licensee was not for having served a drunken person, but for permitting drunkenness on the licensed premises. There was no allegation of any drink having been served to Wardle. The charge therefore was not of such a grave character as the charge of having served a drunken person with drink. He contended that this man was perfectly sober when he went to the Anchor, and if he developed -:C-T., -c-<C,l. .J r signs of drunkenness before he went oat I th»t had nothing ro do with this case. They had dealt with the man and convicted him. The question was whether Mrs Humphreys had committed an offence against the law. In order to convict in this case it musr, be proved that the tie was knowledge on the part of the licensee of the person having been permitted to stay there for drinking purposes, whether he bad drink 01" not. Then again it was pro- vided that a landlady was not criminally responsible for the acts of her servant if done without her knowledge or authority. Hp therefore held that, on the legal aspect of the case as well as on the merits, he was entitled to a verdict in favour of the de- fendant. After seme deliberation the Chairman announced that the Bench had decided to dismiss the case against Mrs Humphreys, but at the saiiK; time they considered the police had done their duty in bringing forward the case. UNLICENSED DOG. John Williams, Allt-yr-Alun, Llan- i armon, was summoned by Police-constabh Jones for keeping a dog without a license.

DENBIGHSHIRE BILLIARD LEAGUE. DENBIGH v WREXHAM. An exceedingly large number assembled at the Constitutional Club on Friday evening to witness the encounter between six repre- sentatives of the Wrexham and Denbigh Constitutional Clubs, in connection with the Denbigh Boroughs Constitutional Billiard League. The Hon G T Kenyon, M.P., who is presenting the winning team with medals, wrote a letter of apology from the House of Commons, in which he explained his sorrow at being unable to be present to witness the contest. The games were watched with the utmost interest, and as far as the nwmber of wins went Denbigh won four and Wrexham two. Mr J W Hughes played his game excellently and won by the biggest aggregate during the contest, beating his opponent by 68. A very exciting game was witnessed between Mr H G E Preston and Mr J H Rogers, both players scoring very evenly, and the result ended in a win for the Wrexham man by 1. Mr Gay Francis, in his game, led all the way up to 128, when his opponent made a very good break of 26 and afterwards ran out winner by 22 points. A very nice game was witnessed between Mr J G Lloyd and Mr George Beach, the latter scoring rapidly at the start. When Lloyd had got to 52 ne made a very useful break of 31, which brought him up to 83 against his opponent's 64. Lloyd again made some very good breaks and won by 150 against the Wrexham Inan's 99, who also played very well. The room was packed when the game between Mr R W Lloyd and Mr T H Magstaff came off. Mr Lloyd played very carefully and several times gave misses, which gave his oppoaent great difficulty to score. The game excited keen interest, and Mr Lloyd ran oat winner by 61 points. The return match is to be played at Wrexham on Thursday next, when it will decide the League championship. The following were the scores DENBIGH. WREXHAM.

MINSTREL ENTERTAINMENT AT RUTHIN. With the laudable object of raising funds on behalf of the local branch of the Soldiers and Sailors' Wives and Families Association a concert was given at the Assembly Room, Ruthin, on Wednesday evening, by the Ruthin Amateur Minstrel and Dramatic Society. Considering the worthy purpose for which the entertainment had been promoted, it was very disappoint- ing that there was such a meagre audience. The Soldiers' and Sailors' Wives and Families Association is an organisation which, admirably as it has already been supported, is in urgent need of further substantial assistance. The meagre atten- dance was also regrettable from the fact that a capital programme had, under the management of Mr Harm, been arranged. The songs were nearly all new, the jokes were good, and the programme ended with a most amusing nigger farce. The first item, after the opening performance by the corner-man, was a humorous song by Mr Isaac Lloyd, "They were all occupied," which he sang with good effect. This was followed by a patriotic song, "Our brave soldier lads," in which Mr T D Jones displayed a good bass voice. A humorous item was next given by Mr Hann in the shape of a song, Polly .Wolly Doodle," into which several topical verses were introduced, and Mr Tom Williams acquitted himself well in the song "In the Navy." An old favourite in the person of Mr George Brocklehurst appeared next in the comic song, "Hey, are you coming back again?," which went off with much go, following which Master Fred Williams gave a very nice rendering of the old song, "The Tarpaulin Jacket." Mr D Lloyd Jones appeared in character for the next contribution, "Oh, it's homely," and by his grotesque costume and comical actions created much laughter. Miss Ellis, Castle Cottage, then sang very prettily the sweet song, Whisper, and I shall hear," and Mr John Williams again introduced the funny element in a very humorous song, "Plenty of Water." The first part was brought to a close by another old favourite, Mr Joe Roberts, who took immensely in the song "I've been left in charge." The second part of the programme was equally good, and was as follows:—Comic duet, I I It's nothing to do with you," Messrs D Lloyd Jones and John Williams song (in Welsh), "The wounded Cavalier," Mr Tom Williams; comic duett, "The Runaway Motor Car," Messrs George Brocklehurst and Joe Roberts; song, "I'm going home to the wife and nipper," Mr John Williams song, "John Bull's letter-bag," Mr Isaac Lloyd; song, "Farewell, Daddy," Miss EllIS. In this contribution a tableau was formed by Mr Hann and his son, the former being attired as a "Tommv Atkins," in khaki, and the piece went off very successfully. The programme was brought to an end with a comical farce, Nigger Justice," which caused roars of laughter. The parts were admirably taken as follows: The judge, Mr George Brocklehurst; clerk of the court, Mr Alan H Williams Sergeant Boozer, Mr D Lloyd Jones; counsel, Mr Joe Roberts and M T D Jones; defendants, Messrs Isaac Lloyd, Tom Williams, Hann, John Roberts, and Master Fred Williams. The duties of accompanist were again discharged with the greatest satisfaction by Miss Slingsby, and Mr Isaac Lloyd was assiduous as hon secretary. The Mayor (Dr J Medwyn Hughes) was unavoidably absent, and sent a communication to that effect.

„ J- ? "ONE OF THE MOST MELANCHOLY SIGHTS IN THE 'WORLD." ONE of the most melancholy siffets in the world (says an article in the Greenock Herald) is a fiflC sailing boat goms to ruin. Valkyrie 111., a former challenger for the America Cup* lies off Cxourock with seaweed two feet long growing from- her sides. After Valkvrie's unsuccessful efforts, she was brought to u-ourock .t>ay, dismantled, and from that day aPpareut!y uncared for. Withm sight of this beautiful bav f;nd the dismantled yacht, lives Mrs. Agnes Turner Brown, of 14, Hopeton-street, Gouroek, thirty- six years of age, nud therefore m the prime of life. She was, uefs so verv long- aw, almost useless and a wrock of her"forirer T- A reporter of the (;reenocl, Herald, who had the privilege of interviewing this ladv on a recent occasion, Mrs. Brown gave the folWiug account of her uu.v.ppy state of existence? troubles were almost at first, she explained, but they became mctfC and more seno-.s, until life was an utter misery to me. I was always ailing and out of sorts, and quite unfit for my daily work in the house. My appetite left rre, aBd wbat food I did force myself to take remained nnd'Vested i!1 the system, causing mo much dfstresS through flatulency. I had severe pains in the stomach after any food, and though 1 would have given anything to sit dowrfta a. meal, yet everything gave ins a nausea, even to loolf at it. My friends knew how roaily I suffered et) this account, and one day I was recormnendeJ to take Dr. pink pills for pale people- I bought a box of the pills, and was not tiis- appointed. One box gave me great relief, and by continuing regularly with Dr. Williams' pink pills my strength came l'uck to me, and I was able to derive nourishment from food. Very soon I was busy with mv househeU affairs again, finding work no burden. As fOr the indigestion, I have forgot-ton it, and can eaii what I fancy ad enjoy it, without dreadiix* ti great deal of pair- and discomfort." Mrs. Brown, it may be mentioned, has » bright little daughter of thirteen, who, poor child, was a little martyr to biliousness indigestion. But after a course of Dr- Williams' pink pills she is quite well and free from biliousness. There is no mors depressing or uncomfort' able ailment* than imlisestion. Dis«rdere<^ digestion gives rise to bilious attacks, inability to relish food, a sallow skin, sunken eves, 180. intense weariness. Marcy people make them- selves worse by attempting to relieve the p I symptoms with purgaii res and apenent pill, Mrs. Brown chose the wiser course, by usin £ th* medicine which goes to the root Ðf the disease aud cures its symptoms bv permanently removing their C,a\1e. Dr. Winiams- pin pills for pale people have been proved to c.r8 permanently what purgatives only relievo f.C a time and in the end aggravate. Net only these, bat other effects of impoverished blood and exhausted nerves have been thus cured- such as aarcmia, consumption, rheumatijJ11, sciatica, paralysis, locomotor ataxy, rickets< scrofula, St. Vitus' dance, fits, hvstena, a*d feminine discomforts.
