FRODSHAM. DRUNK AND INCAPABLE-At the Frod- sham Police Court, on Wednesday morning, before Mr. W. N. Hutchings, James Ouldread, hawker, of Neston, was charged with being drunk and mcapable on Chester-road, Helsby, at 9-0 p m. the previous day, and was fined 5s. (including costs) or seven days. He paid the fine. Acting Sergeant Millington proved the case. SCRIPTURE REPORT.—The following is tho Dioceean Scripture report of the Church-street Infants' School (headmistress, Mrs. Roberts):— The religious instruction is most carefully given, and the children are thoroughly interested in their work. In the upper group the answers wore both ready and full; and a large number of texts and passages of Scripture had been learnt; tfhese were carefully and intelligently said. The lower groups were questioned by their teacher; they have made a very good beginning. The order and tone of the children were all that could be desired." COTTAGE FIRE.—Early on Thursday morn- ing a cottage, occupied by a stoker named O'Duncalf, on The Quay, Frodsham Bridge, was discovered to be on fire. The family were in bed at the time, but were fortunately roused by one of the children, who, smelling the fire, imme- diately raised the alarm. Willing help was forth- coming from neighbours, and in time, with a liberal supply of water, the flamee, which had gained roof of oorrugated iron, were quelled. The outbreak originated through some sticks (which had been left in the open oven to dry for morning) catching fire. This spread to the wooden mantelshelf. Nearly all the furniture and pictures in the kitchen were destroyed, while the walls wero somewhat damaged. SOCIAL EVENING.—In connection with the Iron Church, a well-attended and successful social evening was held on Wednesday in the Parish Room, Main-street, the Vicar (the Rev. H. B. Blogg, -AI.A.) presiding. The proceeds are to be devoted to the church fund. The following pro- gramme, under the able management and con- duct of Mr. H.
