THE NORTH HENDRE LEAD MINE. JUSTICE GRANTHAM AS A MINER. After the Assize Court at Mold was over, Justice Grantham took advantage of his proximity to the Halkin Mining District to pay a visit to the North Hendre Mine- known in the vicinity as the Olwyn Goch Mine. His lordship was accompanied by his sons, Lord Mostyn, and the High Sherifl, for Flintshire Mr. W. H. Buddicom. Captain Ellis conducted them over the premises, and having examined the machi- nery and plant on the surface, the whole party decided to descend the shaft to exam- ine the workings, and for the purpose, each of the party were supplied with a miner's out-fit. When Justice Grantham had donned his miners suit, Lord Mostyn laugh- ingly remarking that his lordship looked anything but a judge in his miner's clothes the judge however proved himself to be a good miner, as he scaled the numerous ladders, candle in hand, and descended the sumps with the dexterity of an old hand, and was evidently the most irtrepid miner of the party, with the exception, perhaps of the High Sheriff, who has been through the workings on several previous occasions. The party thoroughly enjoyed their adven- ture during which they had no small amount of fun. On one occasion his lordship seeing one of his sons in a somewhat ludicrous position exdamied Oh for a snap shot.' They congratulated Captain Ellis upon the excellent state of the mine and observed thatlit appeared to be one 'of the best equipped lead mines in the whole of Wales.
