The latter two were thrown out into the road, and the horse bolted in the direction of Gwaynynog. The two women fortunately received no injury, but suffered somewhat from the shock. Promotion to Mr. Allen.SN\xi\&t regretting thai Denbigh shall lose his services, we cannot refrain from congratulating Mr. Alfred H. Allen upon his appointment as organist and choir master to a new church at Ilford, a rapidly growing suburb of Lon- don. A new organ (by Hope Jones) is in course of erection at this church, at a cost of 1*1,000 and there is a choir of forty voices. There were 300 applicants for the appoint- ment, and that Mr. Alien has been selected, after a personal interview, speaks volumes for his abilities. We wish him every sue cess in his new sphere. The Temperance Mission.The last meet- ings of the Temperance mission were held on Friday and Saturday. On the first named evening, Mr, James Green presided, and the ball was crowded with an enthusiastic audience. The members of the Good Tem- plars' Lodge wore their regalias for the first and only time during the mission. The meeting was opened by the Rev Evan Jones (W.), who read a portion of scripture, and engaged in prayer. The Chairman delivered an excellent address in English and Welsh. The special speakers were Miss C. Warner, of Tonbridge, Kent, and the Rev. Rees Evans, Llanwrtyd, the first named speaking in English, and the latter in Welsh. The — ■»- audience on Saturday evening was not so numerous, but notwithstanding this, the meeting was a fitting conclusion to a most successful mission. Mr. George Williams, Beacon's EiH, occupied the chair. The devotional part of the proceedings was con- ducted by the Rev. Thomas Jones, pastor of the Green and Llangwyfan Independent churches The address from the chair was followed by the Rev. J. LI. Jones (B ), Glyn- ceiriog, and then by the Rev. Francis Jones, Abergele, both of whom delivered capital addresses. Sudden Death.-On Wednesday, Thomas Barker, bricklayer, was found oead in bed at his house in Mount Pleasant, where he resided alone. The deceased, who was a well known character, had been ailing for some time, but was out of the house on Tuesday. He was 72 years of age, and was the only surviving son of Mr. William and Sarah Barker, who for many years kept the Railway Inn. He was a staunch Liberal in politics, and had suffered some- what on account of his political faith. He was a quiet, inoffensive man, and well liked by a large circle of friends. Cc,.unty School Library.-A library for the use of the boys of this school is being formed, and already several gentlemen have given it most valuable support. Mr E. A. Tumour, (Mayor of Denbigh), has graciously subscrib- ed zC3, and the Rev. D. Davies, rector of Denbigh, one guinea towards the procuring of books. Mr. T. J. Williams, nigh street, has presented the school with a splendid book-case such that, if it were filled with books, would be an ornament to any library. Mr. Howel Gee also has kindly supplied labels for the use of the library. It is hoped that the excellent example set by these gentlemen will soon be followed by other friends of the school. Rainfall of 1898.-By the kindness of Mr. Barker, the Clerk and Steward of the Asylum, we are able this eek to give the rainfall on the Hiraethog Mountains for each month of last year. A rain gauge has been fixed at Pantymaen, 1,320 feet above sea level. The following are che figures :— January, 5'11 inches; February, 5'33; March, 2 08; April, 3 30; May, 6 55 June, 3*12; July, 131; August, 7*00; September, 2-70; October, 6'57 November, 3'07 Dec- ember, 563.

The driest month of the year was July, March coming next.
