BUCKLEY. CHORAL SOCIETY.—The Buckley Choral Class, under the leadership of Mr. Wilfrid Jones, which is held under the auspices of the Mold School Board, gave their third annual per- formance to a crowded and enthusiastic audience on Wednesday night in the Central Hall, the oratorio being "Judas Maccabseus." The previous festivals were rendered in a huge marquee, but this year two performances have been given, the former taking place in January. The artists were Messrs. Maldwyn Humphries, Emilyn Davies, Miss Florrie Williams, and Miss Florrie Jones, the orchestra leader being Mr. Haseldene. ST. MATTHEW'S CHURCH RENOVATION. —A specially-convened vestry meeting of St. Matthew's Parish Church, held on Thursday night last week, the Rev. Harry Drew presiding, requested the vicar and churchwardens to apply for a faculty for the erection of the peal of bolls and clock, and for the removing of the font e.nd its replacement by a new one, which is being erected by old scholars to the memory of the late schoolmaster, Mr. Tyson, at a cost of £ 110. The dedication services of the font, the new baptistry, the memorial erected to the memory of the late Mrs. W. E. Gladstone (the gift of Mrs. Drew), the porch, and bells are provisionally arranged to take place on July 30 next. ROWDYISM AT MOLD.—Our Mold corre- spondent writes:-Thc, evening visits to Mold on Saturdays and Bank Holidays of the Buck!ey larrikins has for years past been a cause of dis- quietude to the peaceable denizens of Chester- road and Pentre Hill, Mold. Not very long ago a party of home-returning roysterers amused them- selves by overturning the boundary wall of the Primitive Methodist Chapel. The Primitive Methodists of Mold, be it said, are a struggling denomination, who rely for their very existence upon the physical exertions and self-denial of a faithful few. The miscreants fortunately were discovered, and were compelled to make good the result of their wanton destructiveness. 'Tis to be regretted the matter was not made the subject of police court proceedings, and that a period of de- tention with hard labour was not the result. At midnight on Whit Monday one. of a party of re- turning Buckleyites varied the harmony by resort- ing to the use of firearms near Fair View, with which to decide a friendly (?) argument, and evi- dences of their amiable deliberations remain on an adjacent bill-posting station in the form of shots and blood splashes. We are left to conjecture what form the next outrage on the public peace will assume, and what loss to life and limb may be the consequence.
