(Continuation from 4th Page.) FOOTBALL. PWLLHELI PEBBLES. Saturday, the Penquins are due at Carnarvon and a goixl ex>ilin £ game is sure to be soen, but it will be nothing to the interest that will be taken in the League match on December 5th. That should be one of the matches of the season.
TALYCAFN OBSERVATIONS. Tha game at Talvcafu on Saturday was, on the who!.1, a very good ens, and it would have been a lot better if fouls were less frequent. Tulybont showed gLod form, taking into considera- tion the many changes in the forward rank. Compared with tlL ir dashing display against Oon- way on the previous Saturday the exhibition given at Talycafn was considerably weaker. The play in the last half was very exciting. Finchett, for tht- fiaitofs, played a grand game, some of his saves bring marvellous. j « Tho defence was very good. J. C. greatly improves as full back and will, I hope, find position in a belter team. The halves played well, Tally and Byehan being by far the most prominent. Bryan needs only a little more praetiœ. The forward rank evidently missed the services of Clowe and Moss Davies, but nevertheless they played well, King being most prominent with his smart passes. # Rces for the home toam played a clinking game, many of his saves being very smart. Bill Jones and Thompson played a very good defensive game. Thompson was in tip-top form. The half-backs played better in the last half, E. R.'s tackling powers being a treat. The forwards needed judgment. Walter, who scored the equalising goal, played very well, but at times seemed very nervous, thus losing many fine opportunities to score. « Wooton played well as pivot some of his runs being exceedingly dangerous.
LLANDUDNO COUNTY SCHOOL v. RYDAL MOUNT. Played at Llandudno, on Saturday. The teams v%,ero :-Llandildno Symonds; R. Davies (capt.) and T. O. Pierce; T. Davies, O. Hobcrts and H. T. Edwards; Graham, C. Arnold, G. Kerridge, W. Brown and H. Roberts. Rydal: Robson; Wilson and Baker; Wood, J. R. Harrison (capt.) and Cole; C. Owen, Swire, Lancaster (P. G.), Bestall and Sykes. The home team won the toss, and R. Davies elected to play against the wind. Give and t.'ike play was the order of the first half, with Rydal having slightly the better 1 11) of the game, and scoring twice, whilst Llandud- no only notched once. The second moiety opened with fast play, and Llandudno drew level. The home centre scored with a long shot. The game ended with the score standing at four goals each.
BANGOR WEDNESDAYS v. LLANDUDNO CORINTHIANS. (By "Spectator.") Llandudno Corinthians 2 Bang'or Wednesdays nil. On Wednesday afternoon, on the Bangor Town Ground, Llandudno Corinthians met the Bangor Wednesdays in a friendly encounter. The foliowum were the teams: — Bangor Wednesdays: Tommy O-Aven; Bob Davias and D. John Thomas; Emyr Hughes, Arthur Stanley, and D. Mulholiand; Dick Jones, G. O. Roberts, D. Walford, iaiicstn Griffiths, and Donaldson. Llandudno Corinthians: B. Soden; L. Davies and F. Jones; W- Parker, T. Mudd, and L. Elias; John Carney, G. Jones, G. Douglas, A. Lewis, and G. Mackenzie. Bangor opened with hen men, and made a .rllii'h, but Llandudno smartly retaliated, and after some dillH -dallying on both sides Macken- zie received, and delivered to grounder, which found the not. Llandudno a,gain were on the agrcssive and in a melee within the dreaded area Bob Davies fouled an opponent;, and a p?nalty was given to Llandudno, from which the veteran Fred Jones scored. Emyr Hughes now made his appoarance in the half-back line. Bangor now pressed ha.rd, and a free kick was taken by Walford and missed. Rain began to fall steadily now, and some very poor play was witnessed. Corner kicks became very frequent at the Llandudno end, but were of no avail to Bangor. Mackenzie received the ball, and made a splendid run along the left, transferring to Carney, who directed right into goal. D. John Thomas, in trying bo clear, gave Llandudno a cornor. Carney gave a good place kick, but the Bangor defence cleared safely. The home forwards then took up the running, and were pressing hard when half-time was called, with tho score: Llandudno Corinthians 2, Bangor Wednesdays 0. The game was soon after abandoned on ac- oount of the weather.

The Secretary aJso drew attontion to the de- sirability of oarefully considering tihe appoint- ment of a seoretary for the forthcoming season, as he tihwight it was essential in the interests of the club that the gentleman ap- pointed should be able to devote much of his time to the office, and that above all 'he should be on the spot duriug the most busy time of Uhe holiday season. frhe secretary's report was unanimously adopted.

IIUNTING. (All Rights Reserved.) ANGLESEY HARRIERS. Tho meet 00 Saturday was at Llangefni and a gr-od field turned up and enjoyed a good lay s I-j ■ rv 'j ho hounds drew the Tandy first, and chopped a hare. Found again on Ty Gwyn and ran by the Pandy, crossing the Llangefni Road to Bodalaw, v.heie the haie was killed. They again drew Ty Gwyn and went I, 011 the Staple Bodifordd and found a good hare which went straight away over tho C< mi River, which was full to its batiks, and a few o £ the field just escaped a ducking. Oar hounds went ::p over the hill to C.-rrig Adewi at. a good pace, leaving the farm on the right, to the Liungwyllog-road towards Gyfrogwy Bach, where she was herded by a man and turned ¡ back. The liars then retraced her way down to Bryn HYfrYd to the river again, but instead of crossing she I' diverged to the l--l^, under Cerrig DJevvi and on to the railway. She ran :o:lg the line for some disiarve, and a train coming the hounds were stopped. Thus the hare live* to run another day atcr having on this occasion afforded a good 45 minute*' run. Tyn- yr-Onen was afterwards unsuccessfully drawn. How- ever, they found close to Tyddyn and raccd over the big rough fields, to the river 'which the hounds cros- sed, and ran up to Gyfrogwv Bach straight over the road to (JerI"g Ddewi, :0 the river close to Llangefni. The river being full, the hare furn"d bru-k by Brvn II Hyfryd and on to Glan Uyn where fresh hares were on foot, and as darkness was sotting in the hounds were stopped. Thi3 wa. a good ring and a good gal- lop ::ni COm. ASTFRESITS.
NORTH MOKTGOMEnYSHIRE FeOT HARRIERS. On Saturday, the Poder Foot Bridge was the. meet, and heavy rain in the early morning caused a very limited field to turn up. They in- eluded the Master. Mr Herbert. C'nuriof, Mr J. M. Dugdale, Miss Lane, the Misses Perrott, Mr ITamer, Mr Hutoliim, Mr \Ym. Jones, and a few others. A hare was soon found on 'Trcwylan lower pi;-sture, evidently a leveret with very little scent,, and the hounds could only hunt her in fits and starts, and after ringing round for half-an-hour, she was left. In Trewyian orchard a hare was iinfoiinnately chopped. While hav- ing lunch, a. fresh hare was viewed, and bounds soon settled down to run well. Starting in the fieJd opposite Hendreboeth, ran through the orchard, and down through the dingle, then crossed the road, on to Mr Edwards' farm, straight, clown to the river Vyrnwy, which was in high flood. The hound? crossed close behind her, and were washed down some considerable way, but the long swim was evidently too much for her, and they killed 011 the opposite bank, under Vrun Vvmwy. On the way back they put up the previously hunted hare, and soon ie I killed her. A good old hare was later on found on Colfryn, which afforded the best run, of the day. Pointing for Waen Fach, she turned left- handed, and leaving New Buildings, on the right, made for Lpper Collryn. Crossing the wholo length of the farm she turned back and hounds checked in the road. A hoHoa forward soon set them going, and they raced up the long pasture then turning right-handed they ran on the Dey- thur-road. A long check here gave the hare a good lead, and they could never do much after failing entirely on the Common. On Wednesday, hounds met at the Blacksmith Shop, Tilwydiarth. On drawing along from Efel Llwvdiurth, to tho top of the Pandy Dingle, a hare was soon found, and hounds coursed her across a big field, and rolled her over just before she reached the road. Another hare was soon forthcoming from tho gorse by Pandy Brook. and after several circles during which hounds probably changed on to another hare, they went, away straight. for the big wood opposite Llwyd- iarth Hall 'Farm. After running up and down the wood several times they eventually drove the hare out at the top of the wood, over the Ffridd, and killed her in the gorse at the far. end, after running for about an hour. After lunch a hare was soon found un the other side of the Pandy Brook, but she was killed almost at once, before she could get out into the open. On drawing up along the brook, another hire was found, but she did not prove to be a very good one, and after dodging about in some thirk cover, and making one circle, she squatted in a hedge, and a hound got wind of her, and pounced on her before she could get going again. After drawing a little further up the brook, a turn was made for home, and a fresh hare had not been found when hounds were whipped off at Etc! Llwydiarth. Scent had not been good. and therefore it was surprising thai, the hares did not stand up longer than they did. DISMOUNTED.
i FLINT AND DENBIGH HOUNDS. The meet yesterday week was at L'a.ngerriew l' Toil Bar, when only a very small field turned up. The first draw was at Llangemiew gorse, finding a brace and a half, and the hounds soon running, one to ground, it was got out and killed. Hounds were taper on Trofarth, which proved blank; then on to Pantgla." and found one fox, but could do but little with him. Find- ing again in Dol-goch, the hounds ran him hard for 45 minutes, when he beat them by going to ground close to where the meet was in a main earth, hounds then turning their heads for home. The opening meet of the hounds was held at Pentreffynon, the residence of one of the follow- ers—Mrs Storey. Hound;, were first- put in to the big wood at Mostyn, finding at once, but being a very poor scent, hounds could not hunt it a yard. Going on to the Glol, they found one which was making his way to Craven Wood, where hounds had to be stopped on account of shooting. Then, on to Penyford goise, found at once running to within a mile or so of Holywell, bearing to the right up to Mostyn, through the top end of the big wood, straight 1o Ffriddfod, where he got to ground, after a splendid run of an hour and 15 minutes. There was a big field out, amongst those pre- sent were Mr and Mrs Cooke, G wysaney; the Misses Bibby (3), Mr IT. Bibby, Mr ft. Cole, Captain Cole, Colonel and MiR Howard, Cap- tain Sosbury, Colonel and Miss Howard, ('?- Conran, Mr Lloyd.

SIR WATKIN WYNN'S HOUNDS. A large and fashionable company assembled at the Ine,t of these hounds en Saturday at Shavington Hall, the residence of Captain Heywjod-Lonsdale, among thoso present bping noticed Colonel Rivers BuJkeley (who was in charge of operations), Miss Bulkeley, Mr Rivers Bulkeley, jun., Captain and the Hon. Mrs Heywood-Lonsdale, Sir Walter Corbet, Lord Hugh Qrosvener, Mr and Mrs R. C. Donaldson-Hudson, (Cheswardine House), and Colonel Mackeson (Hodn.jt), On making' a start at the lower end of the Shavington Woods hounds got away with a fox that led them nicely on across the park at Shavington t-o Wilkesley Ladgr. Here the fugitive jumped the Irgh enclosure v-a'1 and ran alongside for a little Uiatance, when he s'.vurg light-handed, marking his course tcr-s the Bank House Farm, thence over Mr J- nes' farm at Titrtc-nley, and was eventually lost, hard by Pepper Hill Docks ai Spoonley. The covers around Styche availed little, but when a in.'ve was made over to Sandford there were ap- parently plenty of fox aster. One of the number gut out towards The Twomlows, while another took a line in the direction of Cloverley, but, being headed, swung round to the right over the Wliitohnrch high-road as far as Hoarstone Gorse, and then sped back again across the r,pad 0:1 almost to Cloverley, and finally to his starting point, where no' hng more could be done with him. This represented a chase of a full hour, though somewhat slow in consequence of the catchy scent. Unfortunately Sir Walter Corbet met with rather a nasty accident during th first run, his stood stumb- ling at a blind fence. As a result. Sir Walter sustained a severe kick on the head, whm his horse was en- deavouring to rise. Ho was able to proceed home by motor car after b nng medically att<,n,ted. The Wynristay Hounds' meet on Tuesday was at Kilhendre. The Gehi wa,s a fairly large one, and some excellent, sport was obtained. The first fox was put up in Castle Dingle, and he lan through Kilhendre Park up to Plasyolvn, past Pentromorgan to Rook CoodyraHt. There hounds divided, failing to do much with their quarry. After this they lost him by the Dee. Pont-remorgan Cover was next drawn with im- mediate success. This fox ran fast out to Wig- ginton, making his way to Penybrvn, then down to St. Martin's Moors, where he turned left- handed and made for New Marton. Pointing to Lower Ridges he found his way through the belt. at Ilalton, and crossing the park he raced through the Big Wood, and eventually into the Feggy Coppice. Here hounds had a line. out to- wards the canal, but the game Reynard suc- ceeded in running them out of scent. This hunt lasted 40 minuted, hounds running very fast near- ly the whole of the time. Sodylll and Morralls Covers were afterwards drawn. The company out included Mr Frank Cotton, Acting-Master, and Miss Cotton, Mrs Mainwar- ing, Capt. and Miss Rankin, Mr Moore, Major Simpson, Major Ricknian, Capt. Sovvler, and Mr and Mrs llolberton.

SOUTH CARNARVON RIVERS. The quarterly meeting of the South Carnarvon- shire Fishery Board was held on Friday, at Cric- cieth. Sir Hugh J. Ellis-Nanney, Bart., pre- siding. The Clerk reported that the Board had been suocessful in their appeal against the assessment for poor rates made by the Pwllheli Union in respect of fishing rights. The "Railway Company were reported to have consented to the issue of cheap tickets for anglers. The balance sheet showed receipts totalling E108 in trout licences, and E18 in salmon licences. After paying B45 for re-stocking the rivers, the Board would have a balance of JB55 in hand. The re-stocking v,ras stated to have brought a grfat improvement in trout fishing. A good se:Mon was also enjoyed in salmon fishing. The Carnarvonshire County Council wrote sug- gesting that the scale of licence duties in force in South Carnarvonshire should be reduced to the level of those in the Dovey, Conway, and Seiont districts, and that separate iiocneea should be issued for each river a.t half the charge for the licence for the whole district. The latter pro- posal was deemed impracticable, and with regard to the reduction of the ordinary licence duty the Board agreed to reply that, compared with other districts, where fees were paid, the duties in South Carnarvonshire were very reasonable. It was resolved, however, to take steps to reduce the salmon day licence duty from 2s to is.
AMBULANCE WORK AT LLANDUDNO. DISTRIBUTION OF CERTIFICATES. The annual distribution of certificates ill con- nection with the local branch of the St. John Ambulance Association took place at the Church House, Llandudno, on Friday evening, when the Hector presided over a good attendance. A letter was read from Mostyn, regret- ting his inability to attend, and expressing his satisfaction at the progress of the local ambulance classes. The Rector referred to the valuable work of the ambulance men, and complimented Mr Evan Davies, Water Inspector of tho Council, upon his action in saving the life of a young lad who fell into a pond. The Rector on behalf of the members, thanked Dr. Davies and Dr. Woodhouse for their ser- vioos in connection with the classes. Dr. Davies in responding, paid a high tribute to the action of Mr Evan Davies, and said that had it not been for his prompt efforts the boy would have lost his life. Mr Louis Conway proposed a vote of thanks to the Rector for presiding. Mr Phillip Conway seconded, and said that as one of tho Governors of the City of Westmin- ster Dispensary, he could testify to the excellent work done by the Ambulance Sooioiy in London. The classes for the coming season will be re- commenced on Friday, the. 27th inst. The Rector then distributed tho certificates as follows:—■ First yoar's certificate.-MeSBrs J. O. Thomp- son, Wm.

ARFON AND VALE OF CONWAY TEMPERANCE ASSOCIATION. • ANNUAL MEETINGS AT BETHESDA. The annual meetings of the Arfon and Vale of Conway Temperance Association were held at Bethesda, this week, under the presidency of Mr H. E. Jones (Hywel Cefni), Talysarn. The meetings opened on Tuesday evening with a public demonstration, at which there was an exceptionally large attendance, over which Mr D. G. Davies, solicitor, presided, and delivered an excellent address. The Revs. Hugh Evans, Corwen; R. G. Roberts, and T. Gwynedd Ro- berts, Conway, also delivered spirited addresses. WEDNESDAY'S CONFERENCE. At the Conference held yesterday (Wednesday) morning, it was arranged to hold the next meet- ings of the Association at Conway. The Rev. W. Edwards, Conway, was appointed president for the ensuing year; Dr. Evans, Brynkynallt, Bangor, treasurer; and the Rev. Ellis Jones, Bangor, secretary. The President, in an address, stated that the financial aspect of the Association was very satis- factory. Alluding to the Licensing Bill, he said that if the House of Lords did not adopt the Bill, Wales would not suffer, as the present con- troversy had inspired temperance supporters with fresh courage and enthusiasm, which would be felt in any other further battles on behalf of their cause. A discussion arose as to sending a petition to the House of Lords, hoping that they would pass the Bill, and The Rev. Thomas Lloyd, Llanberis, proposed that. a copy of the petition should be sent to the leaders of the Church of England Temperance Society, with a suggestion that they might send a copy of it to the Lords. He pointed out how necessary it was for all temperance reformers to show a united front in the matter, and there must be no division. If there was the responsi- bility would rest upon their own shoulders. The Rev. James Jones seconded the pro- posal. The Rev. Rhys J. Huws, Bethesda, could not see what practical value would be derived from the proposal. The Church had a Temperance So- ciety of their own, and they could deal with the matter themselves. This view was supported by the Rev. Keinion Thomas, but Mrs Yaughan Davies (Carnarvon) stated that the ladies' branch had written to Mrs Roberts, the wife of Canon Roberts, Colwyn Bay, who was working in co-operation with them. Dr. Evans. Brynkynallt, remarked that his ex- perience at Bangor was that when the Noncon- formists sent copies of resolutions to the leaders of the Church party, they were snubbed. The Rev. Thomas Lloyd intimated that rather than go to the vote, he would withdraw his re- solution. VOTE OF CONDOLENCE. At the afternoon Conference, the Rev. Ishmael Evans. Beaumaris. moved a vote of cordolence with the family of the late Rev. Rowland Row- lands, Wesleyan minister, Abergele, an ex-Presi- dent of the Association. TRIBUTE TO THE LATE LORD PENRHYN. Mr John Jones, J.P., headed a deputation from the Bethesda Free Churches' Council. He said he wished to pay a tribute to the late Lord Pen- rhyn, grand-father of the present Lord Penrhyn, who did his best to do away with public-houses. If tho lease of any public-house on his estate fell in, he absolutely refused to renew it (hear, hear). The result, was that several public-houses had to close their doors (hear, hear). He wished other landowners would follow his good example, and I10 thought it was only right that they as tem- perance reformers should pay that tribute to his memory for the good work he did. If other landowners had followed his example, there would have been no need for the present controversy. Proceeding, Mr Jones stated that within the last, fifty years, the number of public-houses in Bethesda had been reduced fifty per cent. He also stated that a'l the members of the Bethesda Free Church Council were abstainers. The Rev. W. W. Llovd also spoke. TEMPERANCE AND LABOUR. The Rev. Keinion Thomas (Portdinorwic) opened a discussion on "Temperance and La- bour." He repeated the opinion of Mr John Bums that the greatest drinker was not the best worker, a ixrpular fallacy. It was a matter of reg-ret that 75 per cert, of the Trades Union Lodges held their meetings in public-houses. The leaders of Trades Unionism were opposed to drunkenness, holding that drunkards were of no use to their cause. The Rev. Richard Morgan (Trcgarth) remarked that the wages paid to the working-classes large- ly a.ffccted the question of temperance. The Re^. R. G. Roberts, Carnarvon, said he was suro that the leaders of Labour, especiall-; those in Wales, would assist them in cleansing the country of the terrible evd of drink. Let the Labour lenders and temperance reformers endeavour to work hand in hand. Mr W. J. Parry, Bethesda, said that one of the rules of the North Wales Quarrymen's Union was that. none of the lodge meetings were to be held in public-houses. He believed that the principal Labour leaders, if not all of them, were zealous temperance reformers. Dr. Evans, Brynkynallt. pointed out how the theory that strong drink was even temporary helpful, had been demolished. In fact it had been proved that it gave no strength at all. The Rev. Rhys J. Huws, Bethesda, thoajnt they could look for temperance salvation to the Labour party, one of whose principles was total abstinence. Miss Pritchard, Birmingham, gave an tercst- ing address on the present L:een and she expressed her>.e'.f as dissatisfied with the decision of t.he Government with regard to grocers' licences, and the barmaids. The Rev. Glynne Davies (Rhyl) said that they should be thankful to I icJ f er the pi .\cent Go- vernment, and for their bravery T tackling the temperance question. If the '.f i,orris re- fused the present Bill, the temperance reformers would insist upon a stronger one A resolution, proposed by the Rev. Rhys J. Huws and seconded by the Rev. Wyin Davies. Bd.jgor, was passed, appealing to !I-ie House rf Lords to pass the Bill. The Rev. Wynn Davies rather deprecated the pessimistic speeches about the House of Lords uid Bill.

The following were awarded pri?e>s for tem- peranoo work :—First prize, Miss Grace Roberts, Cwmyglo, and second prize, Miss Maggie Grif- fiths, EVF, NING MEETING. Speaking at the evening meeting, the Rev. Wynn Davies, Bangor, said they did not know whether they were justified 111 ki k'ng forward to the future with fear or with faith. They certainly felt exceedingly grateful for the tri- umphant progress of the Licen-ing Bill through the House of Common?. Naturally, several of the amendments were i ot according to the dt- s;,r,a3 of all temperance reformers, but they were »>r;> id that it had reached its present, stage. There were threats in the air, but it passed his comprehension why the Bill should lie rejected by the Lords, and he hoped that wiser counsels would prevail.

The Master reported that the woman' wanted to go out as s«he had always been in the habit of getting a smoke I A sailor, who ihad been brought into the House, appeared before the Board. Replying to questions, he said the was fond of drink, could not keep money, and had never thought of a rainy day. He was too old to get a place. His wif-2 lived apart from him.

AULD ACQUAINTANCE. "We used to rock one another's cradles," said Millais of an old friend—and there is a world of good feeling and tender intimacy in the sug- gestion. One is happy to note that, for the most part, it is the pleasant associations that cling closest, the rocking of the cradles—not Oh,a inevitable scrimmages of childhood, when the cradle gets upset and bumps and briu.08 follow. Tuere's another way, however, of looking at th old acquaintances. One gtets so used to people, so saturated with their personality, that one is seldom able to arrive at a true estimate of their reaJ qualities- And as with persons, so wffh thdngs. We grow so accustomed to the sight of the articles stored in our kitciion cupboards, that we flatter ourselves we know then out and oii,. but in nine cases out of ten we are mistaken. Take, for example, our knowledge of such homely eatables as snet, flour, and currants. Set these three materials before a housekeeper, tell her to ma.ke a swe2t dish out of them, and in ninety-nine eases out of a hundred, she will think of nothing but a phxin boiled currant dumpling that could be matte from such in- gredients. That is because ves do not even yet know all the possibilities of currants. Here are some recip-ss, out from the new edition of a little Currant Cookery Book-and we recommend them to those of our readers who ara on the lookout for new ideas for every-da v cookery. Your own Grocer is well supplied with the New Currant Cookery Book and will gladly give ycu a copy free. LANCASHIRE PUDDING.
