Sheep oouldit be removed to fairs and markets, whether rb existed or not, and far- mers were being -,itinuaily compelled to put theiT sheep in cokkter. It was simply cruelty. In fact, farmers ve put to a lot of trouble by people who knenothing about the matter (laughter). He prosed that they send a similar resolution to thé .ard of Agriculture.

THE FLINT SCHOOL DIFFICULTY. A SETTLEMENT AT LAST. 'A special meeting of the Flintshire Education itJomniiUee was held at Mold yesterday week, to Ileal with a recommendation by a sub-committee Appointed to cousideir the stalling1 of the new Council School at Flint. The subject has aroused a great deal of feel- ing in Flint, particularly with respect to the headmastership. When the new school was pro- jected the Churchpeople agreed to close their school at Pentre, the other side agreeing to take pver the sta5 of the Pentre fcjciiool. The ques- tion of which side broke that compact was the Subject of a heated debate at the meeting of the- Education Committee a fortnight ago, upon a. proposal to appoint Mr Jones, headmaster at Pen- tre, to the same position in the new school. The proposal was defeated in favour of a reference to the sub-committee whose report came forward yesterday. Mr T. W. Hughes (chairman) said the sub- committee recommended the appointment of Mr Jones as headmaster. He moved that recommen- dation. Mr J. P. Edwards said he was one of those who jat the meeting of the sub-committee waa of opinion that the best way under all the circum- stances would be to advertise for the teachers. He would now move that they took that course. He had not seen a single person about it, but after receiving a communication from the Free Church Council of Flint he thought it would be the best ,way in the interests of peace to defer the ap- pointment until the people of Flint had had a tearing. He did not care if the staff ultimately would be composed entirely of Churchmen so long -.s there was open competition and the positions yrere advertised. There were five Nonconformist ministers ankious to interview the committee, and be thought they should be heard. He moved jthat the appointment be deferred until the people pf Flint had been heard. Tho amendment was not seconded. The Rev. John Smallman moved that the posi- tion of headmaster be advertised. Mr Edwards seconded. # Dr. Williams said he had done his best, but it "was no use denying that they were in a difficulty, He had done his utmost to secure the parties to ftgree, but he confessed that the Nonconformists wanted more than he was prepared to -give, and lie was overwhelmingly beaten by his own people. 'He would repeat that he would not see Mr Jones fcuffer, and granted that he thought they might advertise. Mr J.H. Ellis said be could not understand What was the objection to Mr Jones. If there Jwas any question of competence he could under- stand it, but there was not. He heard at the last meeting something about & Nonoonformist at- mosphere, and he could only suppose that a Non- conformist teacher was wanted. Dr Williams said that was so. The Nonoon- JEormists said they wanted a Nonconformist head- toaster. For twenty years no Nonconformist had! been able to earn sixpence in the school. The recommendation of the committee to ap- EDint Mr Jones was carried, the amendment eing defeated by twenty-five votes to nine.
HOLYWELL HALKYN MINING COMPANY. EXTRAORDINARY DIFFICULTIES SURMOUNTED. NEW CAPITAL TO BE RAISED. The progressive steps whioh the Holywell- Halkyn Mining and Tunnel Company are mak- ing were disclosed at the thirteenth annual general meeting of that company, at Chester, on Saturday. The Hon. Cecil T. Parker (chairman of the company) presided, and the directors pre- sent included Messrs H. A. Cope (Holywell), John Brock (Liverpool), Thomas Snape (do.), and Henry Taylor (Chester). The directors, in their report, regretted that, owing to want of funds, they had not been iin a position to push on such necessary develop- ments as would ensure successful returns. Nego- tiations had been entered into and successfully completed, whereby mining and drainage rights of a valuable mineral area of 1627 acres, and, in addition, a drainage charge on other mining setts to the extent of 893 acres or thereabouts have been secured. To develop and drain this area a large increase of capital is necessary, and a scheme has been formulated and will be sub- mitted to the shareholders in due course. The Mining Engineer (Mr Matthew Francis), in the course of his report on the Milwr group of lodes, states:—"Your tunnel, driven at sea level. is exhaustive as far as drainage by gravita- tion is concerned, and since the completion of the bricking of the last section the cost of main- taining it in order has been practically nil. It is the key to the metalliferous wealth of a very large and important district, and as an asset to the company, using it to unlock that wealth, it alone is, in my opinion, worth all the money that has been expended upon the whole pro- perty." The Chairman, in moving the adoption of the report, said the reason why the annual meeting had not been called sooner was that it came to the knowledge of the Board that a large tract of mineral land outside of their take was being gradually unwatered by means of their tunnel, and over which they bad no charge whatsoever. The Board considered that under these circum- stances to continue driving the main tunnels would be unwise and against the interest of the company, and they took the only course left open to them, viz., to open negotiations with the owners of this mineral land—principally the Duke of Westminster, who owned about 2000 acres- but it was soon discovered that there were seri- ous obstacles in the way, which at first appeared unsurmountable. There were several leasees and other interests to be dealt with, and also import- ant legal points which complicated matters, but the Board persisted in their efforts, with satis- factory results. The reports of eminent engin- eers fully justified every step taken by the Board from the commencement of the work. The report was adopted.

DENBIGHSHIRE EDUCATION COMMITTEE. THE POLICY TOWARDS CHURCH SCHOOLS. STAFFING OF RURAL SCHOOLS. A meeting of the Denbighshire Education Committee was held at Wrexham, on Friday, Mr D. S. Davies presiding in the absence of the chairman, Mr Dodd. THE POLICY TOWARDS CHURCH SCHOOLS. Mr Edward Roberts, chairman of the Building Committee, said that for some months past the authority had suspended its policy of cringing the non-provided school buildings up to the standard of efficiency and suitabiliy which they bad set for themselves. At the last meeting several questions affecting non-provided schools were deferred in order that no step should be taken which might hinder the progress of the negotiations for a compromise. A month ago compromise was in the air, and it was fully ex- pected that the Bill would be carried. But now they were all aware that the negotiations had fallen through, and it was necessary in the dis- charge of their duty under the Act of 1902 that the repairs of the schools should be carried out without further delay. He therefore moved that the whole of the questions in abeyance under this head be referred to the Building Com- mittee, who should have power to act in urgent cases. Mr Roberts went on to say that the seven schools built with M'Kenna grants were now completed. One was occupied, and the re- mainder would be ready' for occupation in January. Mr John Allen seconded the motion. The Chairman said that Denbighshire had made an important sacrifice in the cause of educational peace in agreeing to maintain the Brymbo School. In regard to that school they had a very strong and just cause. Peace had not been obtained, notwithstanding the high price they had paid for it, and now it was only right that they should call upon the foundation managers to do their duty in regard to the pro- vision of adequate buildings. The resolution was carried. BRYMBO SCHOOLS. A letter from the Rev. E. Worthington Powell, vicar of Brymbo, was read, in which he sub- mitted an account for JS818, being the cost of maintaining the Brymbo Church Schools from January 6th until December 1st. He sent with the account a return showing that the annual salaries of the staff came to a total of L763, and asked that if the whole sum could not be at once remitted a payment on account might be made. Mr Edward Roberts moved, and it was agreed, that the account be referred to the Staff Com- mittee and the Brymbo Schools Special Com- mittee, who were instructed to have it audited and examined. The Chairman remarked that the Committee were so far quite in the dark as to the number of children in attendance at the schools, and whether the staff engaged exceeded or not the scale allowed by the authority. The committee had undertaken to pay the salaries according to the scale in vogue prior to January 6th. It was also decided not to make any payment on account. Mr Roberts then brought up the question of the repairs to the Brymbo Parochial School building, which had caused the whole dispute. As the committee had now agreed to pay the teachers, it was only right that they should require the building to be put into proper re- pair. Mr Wilcoxon suggested that the matter should be referred to the Building Committee, with power to act, but the Chairman advised that, as the matter was a delicate one, it would be desirable to ask the county architect to re- port! as to what it was now necessary to do to bring the buildings up to the standard. The County Architect (Mr W. B. Wiles) pointed out that no structural work appeared to have been done since he reported fully upon the requirements. The Chairman said that the building might now be efficient for the number in attendance. Mr Wiles said that one of the requirements was cloak-room accommodation, and if it had been provided it would have curtailed the accom- modation in the schools. That curtailment was not now so serious a point. The matter was referred to the Building Com- mittee. On the motion of Mr W Ilccxon, the county architect was requested to push forward the plans for the new Council School at Brymbo. In reply to Mr Sturge, Mr Wiles said he was per- fectly satisfied with the stability of the site pur- chased for that building. RUABON COUNTY SCHOOL. Plans with reference to providing a new science school at the Ruabon County School were laid before the meeting. The Architect said he felt he could not sup- port the scheme. As there was the pro- bability of a dual school being established at Ruabon, he thought it would be a mistake to go on with the present plana. In his opinion, if a dual school was sanctioned, there would be a saving of £1000 if provision was found for a science department in the present building. Mr Simon Jones said there was a long delay of justice on the part of the Board above in not granting permission for a dual school at Ruabon. He hoped such approval would soon be given. The question was left in abeyance. RURAL SCHOOLS AND THEIR TEACHING STAFFS. A return prepared by Mr J. C. Davies, the organiser of education in Denbighshire, with the assistance of the secretaries, Messrs Evans and Roberts, was presented to the committee. Mr Davies points out that since June 1st, 1904, when the committee came into existence, five new schools (exclusive of the M'Kenna schools) have been provided for the benefit of rural children. Arrangements have been made in about twelve rural school for instruction to be given in cottage gardening, and it is proposed that this subject, so far as circumstances per- mit, ahall be included in the curriculum of every rural school. The return is based upon the teaching capacity of each unit of the staff recognised by the Board of Education, as calcu- lated under article 12a of the Code. Only "recognised" teachers are counted. Under article 12a each certificated head teacher counts -for 50 pupils, each certificated assistant teacher for 60 pupils, each un- certificated assistant teacher for 45, each student teacher for 45, each supplementary teacher for 30, and each pupil teacher for 15, On this basis the teaching capacity of the rural schools on the appointed day is calculatcd, with the corresponding figure for the present day, and the amount of the salaries paid in the re- spective years. There are now 84 schools classed as rural in the county, including the five new ones. Of the 84 schools 51 are "non- J provided." In nineteen the staffs are now equivalent for the same number of children as the appointed day, and in eight the teaching capacity is slightly less, but in all the 57 others an increased strength of staff has been provided, the increase in many cases being substantial. In only six schools, however, are the total salaries paid less than in 1904, while in nearly all the remainder the extra cost of the staff is considerable. The following table gives a summary of the return, from which it will be seen that the capacity of the rural staffa of the county lias been increased by 1945 children, and that the cost has risen bv £ 2519 :— I risen by £2519 Salaries paid.

The improvement of the staff in regard to status and emoluments meant an increase in the rate of lid. Ho felt that the committee were proved to have acted in the best interests of education in the rural districts. Mr Simon Jones said that Mr Gomer Roberts, who had moved for this roturn, had now ample evidence that he would have to be a stalwart passive resister in the county of Denbigh (lughter) Mr Gomer Roberts admitted that he spoke rather hastily when he demanded this return (laughter). The return did not quite disprove what he had said, namely, that the rural schools did not get by far the advantages of the urban schools. He would like to see the statement now before the meeting distributed throughout the oounty, for the reason that it was a complete answer to the charge that they bad starved the non-provided schools (hear, hear). Not only had those schools not been starved—they had been made more efficient. Mr Christmas Jones said that to see Mr Gomer Roberts doing penance was a sight for the gods (laughter). Mr Roberts had been courage- ous enough to admit his mistake, but, then, he had courage enough for anything (laughter). APPOINTMENTS. The Committee interviewed nine selected can- didates for head teacherships, and the following appointments were made iStansty Rhosddu Infants' Council School:— Miss M. C. Jones, headmistress of the Fron In- fants' Council School, Southsea, Wrexham. Penygelli Infants' Council School :-Miss Mary Thomas, of the Infants' Council School, Bwlch- gwyn, Wrexham.

WALES' FUTURE DANGER. BISHOP OF ST. ASAFH'S APPEAL FOR CHRISTIAN UNITY. TJhe BisJiop of St. Asaph delivered an inter- esting address on Friday evening at tihe Royal Institution, Liverpool, under the auspices of the Liverpool Welah National Society on "Vicar Pritchard and Oho revivals of Wales." Mr Wil- liam Evans, C.C., presided. An appeal for mora unity amongst the Christ- ian communities of the Principality which was made by the Bishop at the close of his addrasa in responding to a vote of thanks was the most important feature of the proceedings. "One thing, he remarked, "has struck mo in the history of the Welsh nation, and that is that we are a little too fond of going off at a tangent and dividling up into different parties. If we are going' to do great things for Wales we must try to pull together as much as possible (hear, hear). I see a very great ahange passing over tho young people of Wales. I do not like to say I am alarmed, but' I certainly am anxious, and I think that as ministers of Christ we must not. dissipate our strength in quarrelling with each other, but must try to unite on much as we pos- sibly can, because the force of the future is not going to ba, I am afraid, a force on the side of Christianity. I can see tendencies, iiifluencies, and modes of thought developing in Wales that, at any rate, excite anxiety, not to say anything stronger. Therefore, I repeat there is profound need for our working together as Christians as much as possible" (applause). In the course of his lecture, the Bishop e- marked that the works of Vicar Pritchard were composed during the firsj; three decades of the 17th century, and the first edition was pub- lished in 1646. He was a poet whose influence upon tho religious life of his countrymen had been almost unrivalled. His poems were de- signed to be learned by heart, and in the range and depth of their influence they ranked next in importance to the work of the translators' of the Bible into Welsh. Wherever the BibJo went there also went "Canwyll y Cymry," and from the first appearance of the poems down to the middle of the 19th century the people of Wales found in them an expression of their Ir highest spiritual aspirations. Certainly- for 200 years, probably throughout the whole history of the Church in Wales, no other book, the Bible excepted, had so greatly possessed tihe hearts and ao profoundly influenced the lives of the Welsh people (applause). Vicar Pritchard turned to ve.J:s as being the best avenue to the hearts of his countrymen, and accomplished for the religious life of Wales a work which might bear comparison with that of John Koble in the nineteenth century. He was a discriminating observer and a good classical scholar. The Bis- hop described as a fabla the assertion that Vicar Pritchard was a notorious Puritan, and pointed out that during the Commonwealth none of his works were published; and 8tepben Hughes, a Puritan, suppressed his rhymed version of the Catechism of the Church of England. The Punitan movement in Wales was English, in spirit and origin. In Pritchard's time Wale; was Lor. alist and not Puritan, but before tth( middle of the 18th century Wales was sti Loyalist although largely Puritan. At the tins of the Reformation Wales and Ireland affordd a curious parallel. One result of Queen Elii- beth's neglect of Ireland was that proselytisig Romanists came over and Jesuits swarmed ito Ireland. Much in the same way Methodist;te- vivalists poured into Wales, and sowed thcrothe seeds of Puritanism. Whitfield and his folkv-ers in Wales, as in England, did much to tvive personal religion, thougth sometimes at th cost of overlooking the duty of social servic-e The intensity of their zea! made them regardess of rules, discipline, md boundaries; but tbir de- fects were small vhen compared with tie devo- tion and service viwch according- to th<ir iigh-ts they rendered to ;he religious life of Wales (ap- plause) A discussion ensued, the Rev. J. Daves, Dr. Owen Evans, and the Rev. !Griffith ElKs taking part. On the motion of Mr J. G. Rowlands, seconded by Mr James Venmore, a wte of thanks was tendered to blic Bishop. J :=
PARENTS WHO PRAISE PEPS. Hacking Cou;hs & Influenza Colds. The wise mother always keeps a box of silver- wrapped Peps in the house at this time of tho year when cougU, colds, and sore throat are particularly rife anongst old and young. If tlho.se ailments aN not dhecked at the olliet by the Peps method, there is danger that serious throat trouble, chi>nic bronchitis or chest weak- ness in later life na.y be the consequence. Mrs) Betsey Mndon, 92, Elizabeth Road, East Ham, Lcndoi, E., sa.ys Pepa proved a blessing in their ionic. She writes, "QUI little girl, 3k years old. suffered a lot all last Winter from coughs and colds. At night she was rest- less and troubled with a dry hacking cough. We gave her severai medicines, some home-made, with no gDod result. But by givcing her Peps- a half-tablet at a time—-her cough soon became less. Finding ivJiat an excellent medicine Peps were, we continued with them until the child was quite cured. I myself was troubled for months with a heavy cold which prevented me doing my ordinary work. Now, thanks to Peps, I am quite well again. Peps also rid my hus- band of a na.sty cold." "I find Peps veiry good for coughs and colds, and for invigorating and protecting the chest," writes Mrs A. King, Lincoln Hall, Brighton, Norwich. "Oar little boy 4 years old, had influenza, and a bad rough. I gave him some Peps and he soon began bo get better and is now quite well again. My husband and myself and the other children, all had influenza colds, and I had a bad cough besides, but we found Peps very comforting and effectual. Peps warm-up the chest, and remove &U coughing" and soreness." Peps are invaluable for oouglhs, colds, bronchi- tis, influenza, croup, wheezincss, hoarseness, whooping oaugh, sore throat, etc. Of all che- mists at Is lgd or 2s 9d a box. See the registered name, Peps, on every box, and refuse cheap and worthless substitutes.

CHJRCH SALE OF WORK AT RHYL. SUCCESSFUL FUNCTION. The annual sale of work in connection with the Jhurches of Rhyl was held yesterday week, when there was a large attendance, and a most success- ful sale took place. The room had been set [ out with great taste, the stalls being exceedingly pretty, and the whole arrangements were well carried out. In the work of arranging the stalls Mr Humphreys was the moving spirit. Those responsible for tho stalls were: St. Thomas' stall: Mrs Storey, Mrs Tayleur, Mrs Goodwin, Mrs Owen Williams, Mrs Cooke, Mrs Tatham, Mrs Turner, Misses Tatham, Mrs Greenstreet, Mrs Joshua Davies, Mrs Hutton, Miss Joshua Davies, the Misses Owen Jones, Miss Smalley, Mrs W. J. Davies, and Miss Braton. Holy Trinity: Mrs Lloyd, Mrs Lewis Jones, Mrs J. Pierce Lewis, Mrs C. Mainwaring, Mrs Bryan Warhurst. St. John's stall: Mrs D. Thomas, Mrs E. Thomas, Mrs Ellams, Mrs S. Jones, Miss Baker, and Miss Rees. Fruit and flowers: Mr S. Jones, Miss Pryce Hughes, Miss Birch, and Miss D. Ellams. St. Ann's tea stall: Miss Hugh Jones, Mrs Clough, Mrs A. W. James, Mrs Dixon, Mrs W. H. Johnson, Miss Roberts, Mrs Randles.. Miss Hunt, Mrs Herring, Miss Percival, Mrs Roberts, Vale-road; Mrs Roberts, Williams- street; Mrs P. Jones, Miss Williams, Mrs Da- vies, Sisson-street; Mrs Povah, Mrs Davies, Victoria-road; Miss M. Thomas, Miss Webster, Miss Kelly, and Miss A. Williamson. Bijou stall: Miss Lloyd, Miss Janie Lloyd, Miss Perks, Miss E. Perks, Miss R. Heaton, and Miss Black- ley. Provision stall: Miss Williams, Alexandra; Mrs Vevins, Miss Watson, Miss Brownlow, Miss Bevins, and Master Kerton. The sale was opened by Mrs Edwards, The Palace, St. Asaph, who was accompanied by Mrs Lewis, Trefelwy (sister of the Bishop). The Vicar, who introduced Mrs Edwards, said that it was scarcely necessary to do so, as that lady was so well-known. As regards the objects of tho sale, he might mention that each year they were able by that means to devote a considerable sum of money to objects outside their own parish and also to various organisations connected with the Church in the parish (applause). The last time Mrs Edwards opened their sale of work it Was held in a much smaller room, but it was one of the most successful ever held, notwithstanding the fact that the day was the most stormy ex- perienced in that district for about 30 years. If under such circumstances Mrs Edwards was able to produce such good results they had great ex- pectations that day (applause) He thanked Mrs Edwards for so readily acceding to his request to open the sale. Mrs Edwards, in declaring the sale open, said that as Christmas, their birthdays, or any anni- versary came round they looked round for some new or more suitable form in which to send or give their good wishes, but they Cd i' back to the old familiar "Merry Christmas," "Happy Birthday," or "I have great pleasure in de- claring this bazaar open." If those words were spoken from the heart then there could be nothing more appropriate. She realised when she looked around that those connected with that sale had been hard at work for many months, and she could scarcely recognise that it was the same sals that she had opened seven years ago-it had grown so much (hear, hear). It was a great change, and she had great pleasure in declaring it open. The only wish she had apart from that of there being a very good sale was that she might have had the eloquence of some of her sisters in more adequately express herself (laughter and applause). Mr F. J. Gamlin proposed a vote of thanks to Mrs Edwards, and congratulated the workara on their efforts. Mr Greenstreet seconded, and the vote was car- cied with applause. The Vicar expressed the regret of the Bishcp that he was unable to be present that day. During the day several ladies and gentlemen contributed to the musical programme, and the safe will be CQllt tQ-"

PRESENTATION TO THE CHIEF-CONSTABLE OF FLINTSHIRE. Yesterday week, at the County Hall, Mold,prior to the meeting of the County Council for Flint- shire, a very pleasing function took place, viz., the presentation to Major Webber, Chief-Con. stable of Flintshire, of an address in album form, together with a purse of gold, totalling about L200. Mr Summers, chairman of the County Council, asked Mr P. P. Pennant, as the oldest magis- trate or. the county bench, to make the presenta- tion, which that gentleman did in very feeling terms, and paid a high tribute to the way in which Major Webber bad performed his duties. They hoped that he would be spared for many years to serve them with that discretion which had marked his work in the past, and that he would be speedily restored to good health (ap- plause). The address was as follows:— To Major Robert Tankerville Webber, Chief- Constable of the County of Flint. Sir,—We, whose namee are hereunto ap- pended, including representatives of the Court of Quarter Sessions, the Standing Joint Com- mittee, and the general public, beg to offer you our most sincere and hearty congratula- tions on your restoration to health and duty after your recent severe and protracted illness. We deem the present an opportune time to testify our esteem for you as the Chief-Con- stable of this County, and to place on record our high appreciation of the services you have rendered in that capacity for so many years, &ud to publicly recognise the fair, strict and impartial manner in which you have at all times conducted the duties of your important office.

It was a representative subscription, and he valued it the more for that. The album would be handed down in his family, while he accepted the purse with gratitude, and hoped that a sopiirn abroad for a short time would completely rvsfore him to health, and that he would be able to a^ain serve them, as he hoped he had done in 'ie pest, to the best of his ability. He also wished to thank Supt. Ivor Davies and the other members of the force who had worked so well during the time he had been ill, and also during the timg his chief clerk was laid up (hear, hear).
