A FLINT DOCTOR AND HIS ¡ WIFE. I At the Flint Petty Sessions on Wednesday, the Mayor (Alderman J. Hali) in the chair, an application was made by Mr. J. P. Marston, Mold, on behalf of Dr. Stewart Kirkpatrick, for the variation of an order made on the 2nd of November last, whereby his wife was gran- ted a judicial separation. Mr. Brassey, of Chester, appeared to oppose the application. Mr. Marston explained that by the term of the order referred to, the applicant was to allow his wife 24s. per week, and she to have the custody of their only child. This arrangement was made privately between the solicitors of both parties, and was simply confirmed by the Court without having any evidence, and his client now stated that he was entirely ignorant of the terms of the order until it was levied upon him, and he now asked the b3nch to vary the order to 10s. per week, and to give the father the custody of the child. Owing, he contended, to the conduct of his wife his practice had been spoiled, and consequently he had been compelled to file a petition in the bankruptcy court, and now he had absolutely nothing which he could call his own, everything had been banded over to the official receiver, from whom he had borrowed the horse and trap which he now used for the purposes of his profession. Even on Tuesday night, his wife had gone to his house and created a disgraceful disturbance. Dr. Kirkpatrick corrobotated his solicitor's statement, and said that his cash takings for last week only amounted to one shilling, and the week- before, Is. 6d., and he received from appointment a salary of about £78 6s. Out of this he had to pay his coachman El a week. His wife had attacked him in the public streets, calling him a murderer, and charging him with serious criminal offences which were entirely baseless, and she was guilty of using most foul language. In cross-examination he at first stoutly deo ied ever having signed a document agreeing to pay his wife 21s. per week, but on being further pressed, he admitted that he might have done so, but he didn't recollect doing it. He remem- bered that it was to have been £100 a year, if his income exceeded a certain limit. His wife was a widow when he married her, with four children, so that there would be six people to maintain on his offer of IOJ. per week. When he first took over the practise it was estimated to be worth from 9400 to JE500 a year. His wife had advanced him 9100 to pay for the practice, and there was a balance of 915o still owing for it. Mr. Brassey contended that the whole of the applicant's proceedings were simply a dodge to get out of paying hisjjust liabilities, and that having filed his petition in bankruptcy, he was now in a better position than ever to carry out his agreement. He owed his wife over JE300, and there was no prospect of her ever getting a penny of it, as his assests were practically nil. Mrs. Kirkpatrick was called and said that while she lived with her husband she kept all his books, and wrote his business letters, and that during the first six months of his practice, he was earning at the rate oi aboui £ 12 or jEI5 a week, but owing to his conduct towards her his practice had considerably diminished,.and he was not making more than about 9300 a year at present. She had raised £300 as a mortgage on her property in order to start him in the practice as he had practically nothing of his own, and she was now dependent upon the 24s. per week, and what little she could earn herself for her living. The bench after some deliberation decided that there was not sufficient evidence to justify them in varying the order.

Philip Dykins, whose poaching proclivi j ties often get him into trouble, appeared before the magistrates on a charge of poaching on the Gwysaney estate. The Chairman and his son, Mr. Tatton Cooke, did not adjudicate. G. B. Thomas, gamekeeper on the estate, proved to seeing defendant on land called Tyddyn Ucha, Rhydymwyn, on the 24th ult., at a quarter to one p.m. He saw him pick- ing up wires and rabbits. When defendant saw witness, he threw a rabbit and wire into the hedge. Witness went up to him and took defendant to show where the rabbit was. He found it with the wire round its neck. He told defendant he should summon him. and he replied he did not care. In answer to the bench the defendant said he did not deny the offence, but pleaded poverty and necessity. He was ordered to pay 30s., or 3 weeks in default.
I MADAME ADAMS' CONCERT. As the cycle of time goes on, so does Madame Douglas Adams' concert come round, and the one held at the Town Hall on Monday was her eighteenth. Taking the number of years into consideration, it requires considerable skill and ingenuity to have each time a complete change of programme, and this Madame Adams capably carried out, the one on Monday being superior co its predecessors both in novelty, talent, and audience. No expense had been spared in providing first class artistes and the idea was a happy one, whan the services of Mr. T. Valentine Smith, the celebrated opera tenor from the Royal Opera Company and Mr. David Hughes, R.A.M., the famous Welsh bass of the Crystal Palace and Albert Hall Concerts, were secured as well as the accomplished violoncel- list of Liverpool, Mr. Walter Hatton. The stage had been tastefully decorated, the back ground composed of old oak with mirrors and Venetian curtains, whilst in the front were palm trees and the effect was further brightened by limelights and fairylights. The concert was of an Operatic and Ballad description. The orchestra played an overture from Faust' which met with applause. Mr. James Davies. of Northop, gave a capital rendering of The Skipper.' He has a bass voice of good quality, and he should, under the tuition of Madame Adams, whose pupil he is, make a name for him. self. Another pupil who made her debut was Miss Christiana Hewitt of Mynydd Isa. Her song Summer Night,' was accompaniel with cello obligato by Mr. Hatton it had a pretty effect, and the audience were enthusiastic for an encore. Mr. David Hughes was undoubtedly the hero of the evening. He has a rich and mellow bass voice, his rendering of 'The Soldier's song,' was exquisitimely given, and although he acknowledged the plaudits, he had ultimately to respond with an encore. As re- gards a musical treat, the cello solo Dunklers Hungarian Caprice by Mr. Hatton will long be remembered, his technique being perfect. Mr. Valentine Smith has a robrst tenor voice and is suitable for the operatic stage, his Italian song 'Celeste Aida,' being too foreign to be appreciated, but he was more at home with his song I Let me like a soldier fall.' An old favourite Miss Violet Monk gained applause for Cowen's ballad, I Lef b untold.' Her voca- lization was exceedingly good. Master Maurice L. Evans, another pupil of Madame Adams gave a skilled performance on the pianoforte of the Rells of Aberdovey.' One of the gems of the evening, and which had been looked forward to, was the debut of Miss Ellie Stuart Douglas, a daughter of Madame Adams, in character, in the recit and scene from Faustil Could I but know,'1 King of Thale,' Jewel Song. Miss Douglasundoubtedly showed histrionic ability, her elocution was remarkable and her singing was a true interpretation of the composer's meaning. The audience were highly appreciative, and at the conclusion the applause was vociferous. Miss Douglas' performance was meritorious and judging from her display we premise that her success on the stage will be assured. Mr. David Hughes again brought the house down with his song the I Romer' and for an encore responded with the Revenge.' In the second part Madame Adams introduced a number of her pupils in the chorus from the Opera of Patience, Twenty love sick maidens we.' They had been well trained not only in singing but posturing, which however, was marred by a defect in the curtain arrangement. Selections from Maritani followed, The Harp in the air,' being very sweet, the air being taken by Madame Adams, and the chorus by her pupils, and they had to give a repetition. Speaking uf the concert on the whole, it was a great success, and in this achievement the orchestra contributed it was composed of Mr. Horace Haselden, conductor. Cello, Mr. W. Haton; second violin, Miss Florence Adams, Fiute, Mr. W. H. R.*M. Johnson, Piano, Miss Ethel Johnson, and Organ, Master Maurice L. Evans. The hard work however devolved upon Madame Adams who took the solos in the choruses and also performed the duties of accompanist jointly with Mr. Haselden. Among the others who lent material assistance were Mr. Joseph Jones. The programme was as follows:— PART FIRST. 1 Overture. 'Faust,' The Orchestra. 2 Song. The Skipper, Mr. James Davies. 3 Scena.

DENBIGHSHIRE AND FLINTSHIRE AGRICULTURAL SHOW. The following report for the year 1898, has just been issued to the subscribers:- The Finance Committee beg to present you with their fifty--sixth annual report, to- gether with the audited statement of ac- counts. The show at Wrexham, on the first glance at the balance sheet, shows a slight loss on the year's working, of about £7 10s. But a little explanation will show that so far as the Wrexham Show is concerned it made a small profit. In the balance sheet the following items apuear, viz., jumping bar, X5; rent of warehouse, Mold, £4 103. Then we have purchased new ticket boxes, which cost X3 15s. 3d., and new dies for Medals, these cost £1 10s. The latter two items are stock, and the former two items are debts really due to 1897 account. So with this explanation you will see at a glance the Wrexham Show did not lose any mouey. Then again we have over X20 out- standing subscriptions due to the society. The thanks of the society are due to Lord Kenyon for acting as president for the yeir, and for the very valuable assistance ren- dered. The society has also to thank the Wrex- ham Local Committee for their donation of over X-127 from the local subscription fund. The society also begs to acknowledge the handsome donations made by the following in augmentatation of the prizes offered by the society:-The President, The Right Hon. Lord Kenyon, The Hon. G.-T. Kenyon, The Mayor of Wrexham, Mr. R.Williamson, The Mayor of Denbigh, Mr. E. A. Tumour, Mr. Councillor C. Murless, Mr. Edmund Peel, Mr A. E. Evans, Mr. F. Lloyd, Mr. Philip Yorke, Mr. T. P. Jones Parry, junr., and Mr. F. Allmand. Also to his Worship the Mayor (Mr. R. Williamson) for acting as chairman of the local committee, and for granting the so- ciety the free use of the Council Chamber to holds its meetings in. The society has this year to deplore the loss through death of several very old and respected members, viz, Right Hon. W. E. Gladstone, Sir G. Osborne Morgan, Bart, &c., &e.

Mr. Gill, of Southport^gfive an interesting address on the work carried on at Dr. Barn-ado's Home which was illus- trated by magic lantern slides. Miss Porter catered, and the expenses were defrayed by Mr. and Mrs. A. G. Smith, who are the founders of this branch, and have always taken a deep interest in the work. PROSELYTISING. j The annual confirmation services in the Parish Church being near at hand, we find that a most barefaced and determined at- tempt is being made to win over some of the young persons attending Nonconformist places of worship. We think it is high time this sort of work should be exposed and after collecting further materials, we shall have something more to say on the subject. We are glad that the Noncon- formist Union are taking the matter up. We may say that one result of these prac- tices is a determination on the part of some Nonconformist parents to take advantage of the conscience clause in the Education Act of 1870. This clause has been a dead letter in Flint as far as Nonconformists are concerned but a start has already been made, and no doubt others will follow. NONCONFORMIST UNION. The annual meeting of this union was held on Monday evening, at the Welsh Con- gregational church. The Rev. David Ed- wards, president of the union, was in the chair. The fourth annual statement of accounts was submitted, showing the receipts to be XII 13s. lid and the disbursements X12 13s. lkd., leaving a balance in hand of £1. The Free Churchman accounts showed re- ceipts of £24 6s. 4d., and payments, £23 8s. 2d., leaving a balance of 18s. 2d. in hand. This was considered a very satisfactory state of affairs, and as affording very much encouragement. The president then delivered an interest- ing address. He wished the union every success in the future, and moved the adop- tion of the secretary's report. Dr. J. H. Williams, C.C., seconded the resolution, and said he endorsed the senti- ments of the president. The motion was carried unanimously. A hearty vote of thanks was accorded to the secretaries on the proposition of Mr. Richards, seconded by Dr. Williams. Addresses were also delivered by the Rev. J. D. Williams, Messrs. B. Roberts, and R. W. Knighton.
