Books and Bookmen. A TRANSLATJON of M. Edmond Scherer's "What is Catholicism?" will be. published on November 27th by Mr Grant Richards. -The book contains an introduction by the Rev. R. F. Horton, M.A., D.D. "Never," says Dr Hor- ton, "was the case of the truth-seeker stated against Roman claims with more temper, with more candour, or with more convincing lognic. "How to Choose your Banker" does not strike one as a very catchy title for a book, for in country towns folks generally have only Hob- son's cho.ice; and where there may be more than one bank the customer rarely hesitates when he finds one manager more ready to oblige him in a pinch or when he finds that his most substantial neighbours deal at such and such a bank. Still this book by H. Warren, and just published by Grant Richards, is a handy vol- ume for business men, who are frequently found to have but a very superficial knowledge of the rcJlitine and principles of banking. There are certain parts of the book where the subject is treated very lightly, as if the author had a very keen sense of humour. But dealing with a sub- ject so dry and uninteresting, a strain of that kind on the whole is not amiss. "Battles of the Nineteenth Century," pub- lished by Cassells', and which includes a 16- page monthly supplement on the Boer War, has just reached its fourteenth number. War litera- ture has been very abundant of late, particular- ly of the pictorial kind, but th.s work presents its readers with an account of our greatest battles in a more distilled or literary form, and with a better sense of proportion than can be formed by reading despatches from day to day. This, of course, is a work for the library. "Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Manage- ment," is again though the press in a new and revised edition-about the fortJeth-and which brings it up to its 660th thousand. It is given to few books to achieve such a record as this, but whilst most women have to undertake the care of a house on some scale or other, and all sensible ones seek to do so methodically and well, this work will always be in favour and really indispensable to the model and thrifty housewife. It is not the good fortune of all young women upon entering upon the charge of household affairs to have the advice and counsel of a practical and sensible mother. But for forty years Mrs Beeton has more than filled the gap in hundreds and thousands of homes, and in all parts of the world. The contents are admirably arranged, and embrace sections detailing the place, functions and duties of the mistress, the -.housekeeper, and the duties of every member of the household. The furnish- ing and general arrangements of the house is admirably treated, as also are the directions for shopping and buying, for almost every conceiv- able utensil and class of goods are particularised and priced. Cooking of every description for all seasons and all stations of life is very explicitly explained for all sorts of occasions. The management of the sick room is an impor- tant section, and there are many other heads of information too numerous to mention. The coloured and other illustrations are admirable, and the style in which nearly two thousand pages of printed matter is presented, renders the work quite neat enough for a wedding or a Christmas present, and to the sensible house- wife nothing could be more appropriate.

LLANRWST v. COLWYN BAY. An arranged match between Colwyn Bay and Llanrwst was the attraction at Llanrwst on Sat- urday. The Roosters have some important matches to play in the future and a friendly with Colwyn Bay was arranged. The match was played in good weather, and there was a good gate. The homesters played up well from the kick-off, and T. Williams scored after five minutes' play. This success was followed 'by the homesters again scoring through P. Jones and E. Jones. In the second half the visitors played up well, and Ned Griffiths scored the first point for them. H. Roberts soon after- wards scored a second goal, and a third was added by B. Rowlands. Ned Griffiths scored again for the visitors, and shortly afterwards H. Roberts scored another, and B. Rowlands made matters equal by putting on No. 3. By good play the visitors turned what appeared to be a certain win for the homesters into. a win for the visitors, who added three more goals, and thus the Roosters were once again defeated by a scratch team from Colwyn Bay.
NOTES. Four of the teams on the coast were engaged on Saturday in the first round of the North "Wales Coast Senior Cup, viz., Carnarvon Ironopolis, Llandudno Swifts, Bangor, and Rhyl United. The holders of the cup, the team hailing from Llan- dudno, had to journey to Carnarvon for the second successive Saturday, the previous Saturday finding the Swallows victorious in a League match by 2 goals to 1. Anticipations ran high that the holders would make a bold struggle to emerge from the first round, but the fates were against them, and they had to retire defeated by a single goal scored in the match. It must be admitted that Carnarvon were the best team on the day's performance, and deserved to win, for their efforts were very per- sistent and determined, and they were repeatedly dangerous and hard to keep in check. The defence of Carnarvon was very solid, save the goalkeeper, who appeared very shaky and easily beaten had he much work to do. He was distinctly luckv to come off without a score being placed against him. The halves were splendid tries, and the forward rank included the well-known Li (who, by' the way, is not connected with Li Hung Chang), and whose centres are so well known, and always a dangerous winger when half a chance is given him. Morris and his other colleagues were very fair players, and played with a zest which was sur- prising. The Llandudnoites have seldom been seen in worse form, their quality being decidedly below the standard expected, more especially from those who had made such gallant fights to be the pos- sessors of the cup. This same ground, The Oval, found the Swifts a couple of seasons ago trounce the almost invincible Bangor team by five goals to one but it now appears as a most probable thing that Bangor will again be the holders of the hand- some trophy. Had Llandudno's show been a good one there would have been some sympathy for them, but truth to state their display was a"very poor one, and spelt defeat. Johmly Griffiths in goal must be congratulated upon his masterly dis- play between the sticks, for his saves were really fine, and several times it appeared as if the citadel he was guarding would repeatedly fall, but he was only once defeated, and no blame attached to him for that. Freddy Jones has played better many a time, but his injury might have affected his play. Ned Hughes played as usual in the full back line like a Trojan. His marvellous clearance in the mouth of goal in the first half was worthy of every praise. The halves were not in foi-iii by a long way, being erratic and wild, and the same may be said tor the front rank, save M'Cann, who sent some teasing shots in, which were neatly negotiated. There seemed to be a want of cohesion or a swing—usually a very prominent characteristic with the Swifts. One expected it in the second half, but, alas there was none of it. And so the Swifts may say for the present Au revoir, but not good-bye," to the North Wales Coast Senior Cup. The contest in Bangor was fought with more interest when it was found the clever Rhyl team were to meet the Bangorians at the latter city. A short time ago the Rhylites beat Bangor by 3 goals to 2 at Rhyl in a Combination match, and it was reckoned that a fierce struggle would be made on Saturday by Rhyl to be just for once in the second round for the Cup, which Rhyl have never yet held. However, a keenly-contested game gave Bangor victory by 2 goals to I, and thereby gave Rhyl the quietus in their aspirations for the Cup.
Rhyl and Prestatyn Light Railway Extensions. AT the Board of Trade on Friday, Sir Courtenay Boyle heard the appeal of the Urban District of Rhyl with reference to the confirmation of the above Order. Mr Warwick Webb appeared for the Order, and Mr A. Rowlands, Mr D. C. Bad- cliffy, and Mr Alf. Dickinson (engineer) for the Rhvl Urban District Council. Mr Webb stated that negotiations were now going on between the Rhyl Council and the pro- moters, and an agreement would certainly be come to, as the matter had already been assented to by a large majority of the Council. The only point between them was as to the penalty or com pensatioa to be given to the company in case of the failure of the Council to supply them with current for the railway. The company suggested so much an hour, and the Council thought it ought to be based on the returns of the proceeding three or four days, but that would have involved to,) much book-keeping on the part of the company. Ultimately a provisional agreement was made, and it awaited confirmation by the Council. Sir Courtenay Boyle said he should like to have a copy of the agreement, but it must not be scheduled to the Act. Mr Webb said they wanted it scheduled, so that they might sue before a justice for penalties against the Council for failure to supply them with current. Sir Courtenay Boyle It is purely a civil con- tract between you and them. Let us have the agreement and say that it has been settled between you, and we shall say that we are glad to learn that it is so, but we shall not have it scheduled to give it the force of an Act of Parlia- ment. Mr Webb: We want the order confirmed not later than fhe 14th of next month, and it has been expedited by the Light Railway Commission for that purpose. Sir Courtenay Boyle We can conhrm the order the moment we get the print from you. The Order will be confirmed accordingly.
The Great Fat Stock Sale at Col. Platt's Home Farm. THE 38th annual fat stock sale in connection with the Madryn Home Farm, Llanfairfechan, came off on Monday last, Mr W. A. Dew (of Messrs. W. Dew and Son, Bangor) being the auctioneer. At the lunch preceding the sale Professor Winter, of the Agricultural Department of the University College of North Wales, in proposing the health of Colonel P.att, the host, said they would all agree with him that Colonel Platt had been the very best friend agriculture had had in North Wales during the last thirty years. (Applause.) In that part of North Wales there was practically nothing apper- taining to farming which Colonel Platt had not touched and improved. (Applause.) They had heard a good deal of late of agricultural depression, and most of them knew what it was. In such times the larmers' mainstay was the breeding of real good stock, and Colonel Piatt had tried his hand at the improving of most stocks of cattle in North Wales. Colonel Piatt had also done a great deal for sheep. (Hear, hear.) There was no doubt that Colonel Platt had brought untold blessings to agriculture in North Wales. (Applause.) Colonel Platt, who was received with cheers, thanked Mr Winter for his very flattering remarks, and the company for the kind way in which his health had been drunk. He had, as usual, a good assortment of cattle of various sizes suitable for the different butchers, and he hoped they wonld. be put before the buyers in as good a condition as was usually produced there. The sheep, he ventured to think, were rather better this year than usual. In fact he had two or three pens of sheep of a cross that he had never offered before, and that would compare with anything in the way of mutton that they had ever bought. He was referring to a cross between the Scotch black-faced ewe and the Leicester tup. If these sheep went off well and realised good prices, and if afterwards the butchers told him they were satisfied with the mutton, he would probably another year produce more of them. (Applause.) Colonel Platt then proposed the health of Mr Dew, who briefly acknowledged the toast and proposed the health of Colonel Piatt's farm bailiff, Mr Owen Jones, which was also drunk with enthusiasm. The company then adjourned to the sale-yard. There were not so many buyers as in previous years, but the prices obtained may be classed as fair. The sheep, which were sold in pens of fivc, realised from 24s. 6d. to 35s. each. The \VeI51 wether four-year-olds were sold to Messrs Griffiths, Llanfairfechan, and David Evans, Carnarvon- The two and three year, old Chevidt sheep were sold to Messrs R. Williams (Bangor), H. Owen and D. Evans (Carnarvon), H. Griffiths (Llanberis), and i Jones Brothers (Menai Bridge), at prices ranging between 28s. and 32s. 6d. each. The same purj chasers also secured a number of cross-bred wethers and Cheviot ewes at prices which were, something similar to those already quoted. Tilc fat cross-bred bullocks were sold at prices ranging from £ 16 15s. to £ \j 10s. to Messrs E. Roberts (Old Colwyn), D. Evans (Carnarvon), and JOlle Brothers (Menai Bridge), at prices ranging betwee1 £ 15 and £ 17. Twelve fat Welsh bullocks vve^L' disposed of at prices ranging from £ \6 ios. £ .18 5s., among the purchasers being Mr Rober Hughes (Llanfairfechan), Mr Evans (Carn arvorl), and Mr John Hughes (Upper Bangor.) 01 half-bred Galloway and Welsh bullocks sold thre went to Mr Evans (of Carnarvon), two to Mr Ro-" Hughes (Llanfairfechan), other purchasers be'n& Mr Griffiths (Llanfairfechan), Mr H.
