SUCCESS OF A RUTHIN MAX—uur RVHTNIN readers will be very glad to hear that Mr E Williams, son of Mr W Williams, Ruthin Station, ias attained considerable success in London, securing a much coveted prize in cutting. He is engaged by one of the highest class trades in London, having entered it some six yeers ago. Mr E Williams was formerly an apprentice of Mr T H Roberts, St Peter's- square, Ruthin. EATON FESTIVITIES.—There are to be great rejeicings at Eaton next month (says Belle in the World "), both wedding and coming-of- age, and the Duke and Duchess of Westminster are going to entertain on a regal footing all lWheir neighbours and tenants There were no rejoicing when the Duke came of age, as he was in South Africa, and his wedding was celebrated quietly, as it was so soon after the late Queen's death, 'lhere will be a very large family party, so that even that gigantic house will be full. EASTER VESTRY.—The Easter Vestry for the parish of Ruthin was held on Saturday morn- ing, when there were present the Rev Chan- cellor Bulkeley Jones, Messrs Theodore Ronw, T H Rigby, and D Glynne Jones (church- wardens), Mr W G Hodgson, and Mr George Edwards.—Messrs John Roberts and David Glynne Jones were re-appointed by Chancellor Bulkeley Jones as his wardens, and Messrs Theodore Rouw and T H Rigby were re-elected for the parish. The sidesmen were appointed with the addition of Mr E J Maddocks.—Col Cornwallis West, Dr Jenkins, Mr Theodore Rouw, and Mr Beech were re-appointed deligates for the diocesan conference which will take place this year at Colwyn Bay. RUNAWAY HORSES—Few days ago two horses belonging to Mr William Ellis, Pwllsrlas, which were attached to a heavy cart, bolted whilst the cart was in a titted position and ran off in the direction of Ruthin at top speed. As they were coming along the road by the side of the Castle gardens wall, Mr Ellis, gardener, ran out and endeavoured to stop them by throwing up his hands. They continued at a gallop and Mr Ellis then courageously seized the leading animal, and by pulling the bit succeeded in bringing the horses to a standstill. But for Mr Ellis prompt action the horses would probably have continued to gallop into the towa, and considerable damage might have resulted. SUCCESS OF A RUTHIN MAN.—We are pleased to note the success of a late Ruthinite, Mr J Williams, now of Bangor, in an examination held in connection with the Railway Institute, Bangor, on April 27th. Mr Williams, who is a son of Mr Williams, signalman, was appren- ticed as a painter to the late Mr J H Davies, Market-street, and is now engaged with the L. & N. W. Ry. Go. at Bangor, where he has been for the past nine years. There was a large number of competitors, but Mr Williams was successful in gaining certificates as fol- lows:—First for painting and decorating; first for free hand drawing, and fourth for oil painting. He was also awarded a prize con- sisting of painting brushes, valued at 12s. 6d. for painting on glass. The certificates are handsomely illuminated and bear the signatures of the president and secretary of the Institute. We heartily congratulate Mr Williams and no doubt his old Ruthin friends will also do so, upon his marked success in thess various subjects.
