MOLD. COSMOPOLITAN SOCIETY. One of the most interesting and instruc- tive addresses was given at the society's meeting on Tuesday evening, by the Rev. John Owen, when he took for his subject Some problems in South African Life.' It will be remembered that Mr. Owen was one of the delegates appointed to go to South Africa, to enquire into matters relating to his church. He there spent a period of six months in travelling from place to place, and came into contact with E;o.. e of the notables, whose names are daily before the public, such as President Kruger, Mr. Cecil Rhodes, Matabelle chiefs, &c. He described the conditions under which the Boers lived, and the antipathy they had towards the Uitlanders, who had under great depriva- tions, developed the country, also of the increase in number of native tribes, who are apt at learning, which showed British in- fluence, and that eventually one of the chief problems would be how to deal with the natives when they approached civilized state. Mr. Lloyd Parry presided, and in thank- ing Mr. Owen for his address, said he had so graphically explained the situation, that the members of the society would take greater interest in the development of that great country. VOLUNTEER SMOKING CONCERT. The Mold (A) company 2nd Vol. Battalion R.W.F., under the command of Capt. T. M. Keene, paraded at 6.30 on Thursday even- ing last in drill order, and proceeded on a route march, preceeded by their band which played some very lively marches. Afterlde- positing their arms and accoutrements in the armoury, the N.C.O. and men proceeded to the Dolphin Hotel, where a highly enjoy- able smoking concert was held, Capt. Keene presiding.

During an interval in the proceedings,:the chairman stated that he had much pleasure in presenting a handsome eight-day time- piece, the gift of the officers of the Mold company to Colour-Sergeant P. Ll. Jones, on the occasion of his marriage, and he was glad of the opportunity to do so, because of the esteem and respect in which the re- cipient was held. Colour-Sergeant Jones was now entering on his 23rd year in the Mold company, and had for years been Colour-Sergeant. He (the chairman) held up the fidelity and energy in the case of Colour-Sergeant Jones as an example to the younger members, and hoped he would be long spared to serve in the corps. A con- vivial meeting terminated with the singing of the National Anthem.
