DENBIGH. -r- Measles.—A large number of children in I the town are suffering under the measles, but we believe that the epidemic is not of a malignant nature. Capel Mawr Literary Society-At the meeting of the above society on Thursday night, Mr. W. O. Jones, Love Lane Board School, read an interesting paper on 'Welsh Folk lore.' The Rev. Evan Jones presided. The new Sheriff—TJ on his appointment as sheriff of the County of Denbigh, Thomas Williams, Esq., of Llewesog, near this town has appointed Mr. J. Parry Jones, Town Clerk, under-sheriff for the year. We do not believe that there is any gentleman better qualified for the important office of under- sheriff than Mr. Parry Jones, and we con- gratulate the High Sheriff, upon securing such an efficient and valuable assistance 11w Baptists Literary Society.—At the weekly meeting of the above held last Tues- day evening a debate took place, the subject being, Do we as a nation deteriorate or improve- One side was championed by Mr. Bevis B. Roberts, and the other by Mr. R. li. Jones (Rhydyddori). The other speakers included Messrs. J. T. Hughes John Wil- liams, Morris Owen, Edward Hughes (Chapel Street), Robert Jones (Trebor Aled), and Peter Jones. The Rev. B. Will".a us presi- ded. Musical Successes.As will be seen in our St. Asaph news, a choir from this town, under the leadership of Mr, Edward Jones, Abram's Lane, was awarded the chief choral competition prize at the St. Asaph Eisteddvod last Monday, the trophy being secured in the face of three other excellent choirs. The prize was X.5 5s., and a silver crovvn for the conductor. At the same eis- teddvod, Mr. R. G. Jones of this town was the best baritone soloist out of several com- petitors. Examination Success.—Miss E. A. G. Ed- wards, daughter of Mr. S. Edwards, M.A., Head Master of the Denbigh County School, has again been successful in taking a high place in the class lists of the Cambridge Local Examination just published. She is placed, in the Senior Honours Division (Class II.), and also on the list of students who did well enough in Latin and Mathe- matics to be excused certain parts of the previous examination if they wish to enter Girton or Newnham College. Assaulting the Police.—On Monday, before Mr. E. T. Jones (in the chair) Mr. R. C. B. Clough, and Dr. J. Lloyd Roberts, William Hughes, alias 'Breriiii' was brought up in custody, charged with being drunk and dis- orderly in Henllan Street on the previous Saturday night, and assaulting P.C. Salus- bury in the execution of his duty. Prisoner pleaded guilty, and was sentenced to one month imprisonment, without option of a fine, for being drunk and disorderly, and to two months for assaulting the police. Sunday School meeting at Green Chapel.- Last Sunday, a Sunday School meeting was held at Green Independent chapel, under the presidency of the Rev. Bennett Jones, Nantglyn. In the morning, the children were catechised by Mr. W. Foulkes, Green, and addresses were given by several of the delegates. Portions of the Iscripture were also recited. In the afternoon a paper was read by Mr. John Roberts, St. Asaph, on Sunday School work, and the adults were catechised by Mr. William Roberts, Beacon's Hill, from John ii. The Rev. Bennett Jones preached in the evening. 1 Promotion.—We understand that Mr. Ri-I chard Morris, 8011 of Mr. Isaac Morris, boot maker, Swine Market, has been appointed Chief Clerk to the Official Receiver in Bankruptcy for Newcastle-under-Lyme, and Shrewsbury. The district comprises parts of Cheshire, Staffordshire, and Shropshire. The appointment has been sanctioned by the Board of Trade. We most heartily con- ¡ gratulate Mr. Morris, on his appointment in which, we do not for a moment doubt, he will do well. He has filled several very im- portant offices since he left Denbigh, and every step he takes is a step higher. Sudden deatlt.-Eay ly last Sunday morn- ing, Mrs. Bassett, wife of Mr. R. Bassett, tailor, Back Row, died very suddenly. The deceased had been in bad health for a long time, but was to goibout, and had been out on Saturday night. About three o'clock on Sunday morning, Mr. Basset noticed that deceased bad difficulty in breathing, and at once procured medical assistance, but before Dr. Lloyd arrived, Mrs. Bassett was dead. As deceased had been under medical treat- ment, no inquest was necessary. Mrs. Bas- set was a highly respected woman, and leaves a husband and a number of grown-up children to deplore the loss of a good wife and an affectionate mother. Sale of the Croil)-n, Il-otel.-On Tuesday, this well-known Hotel was sold to Mr. Robert Hughes, the present tenant, by private treaty. It will be remembered^ that it was withdrawn at the public auction held the previous week, the highest bid being one of £ 3,200 by Mr. Roberts, auctioneer, Corwen. We are given to understand that a large number of farmers, &c.t were to meet in the town on Wednesday, at which meeting it it was hoped to agree upon the purchase of the property with a view of converting it into a temperance hotel. When it became known that Mr. Hughes had secured the premises, some very influential farmers openly expressed their disappointment at having lost the property. Messrs. Clough and Co.'s Auction Sales.- Last Thursday, Messrs. Clough and Co.. acting on the instructions of Mr. Howatson; agent for Mrs. York-beld a sale at Plas-yn- Cornel, Llansannam In spite of the wea- ther, which was boisterous, rain and hail which was falling all day, and a high wind blowing, the sale was very satisfactory both as regards attendance and prices. Beef ruled very high, and fair prices were ob- tained for mutton store stock sold at an advance on the prices of the last fair. The implements werej disposed of for fair prices. The prices were more satisfactory, when it is considered, that this was a cash sale. Amongst the forthcoming sales by this well known firm we may mention Cefn Main (where there are 50 heads of cattle), Ddwy Accar, and a highly important sale of freehold farms in April or May. To-day (Friday) they hold a sale at Plas Siors.
