Uaimvst 153 Bangor University 19 The Bangor University team met IJanrvvst on the Gwydr Ground on Saturday afternoon, under ine most favourable climatic conditions. Tfho pjr/jh was in pcrlc-et order, and t1.e ground aa closely eloped as a convict's head- Mr Jen- kins, who was in dhargfe of the home team in the 'absencc of Mr H. E. BliuckivaLl, won t-he tio5.i, and sent in his men to bat- R. C;, Cruwya and Norman Rogers Jones opened the batt.in.g, while Claude Davies opened the bowling from the Bettws end. Cruwys opened the innings by hitting the trundler's fe- cond delivery to the pavilion for 4, and the last ball of the over for a unit, which would have been a "boundary" but for the smartness of L. Mathews at the slips. J. E. Mathews took charge of the town end, and Cruwys punished him in one over to the tune of ten runs—a straight drive for 4. another for 2, and the third lpii teg*-sLdo to the boundary for 4. Norman Jones then cut Davies' delivery past point for 2, while Cruwys again slashed at Mathews severe- ly.

Cruwys thus readi- ed his 40 runs in 30 minutes- Norman Jones baying secured a run off Da vies, Cruwya sent his next delivery over the "oarpet" to the pavilion for 4. Smedley at this period relieved Mat hew, and Cruwys 'hit his Qrst delivery into Walkers hands at square teg, but he failed to hold. Nor- nian Jones tihen seoncd a couple, and Cruwys, with a quartette off Davies reach his 50 in 40 minutes a.midst applause- The next ball he sent passed the slips for 3, all run, but lifted the next ball over t'he v.ioke<t to J. Lt. Jones, who held. One for 63 Cruwys' bright innings m- ohtded nine 4's, one 3, and three 2 s. With one passible aha-noc to Walker his inning's was flaw- less. L. 0 R- Ashley joined Norman Jones and modestly opened with a single. Jones now re- ceived more of the bowling. and with a straight drive scat I)avies' delivery to the boundary for 4, while Ashley next snicked a single. Jones appeared wcil set at this stage, but unfortu- nately tie ran himself out. 2 for 78. Orton filled tOO vacancy, but lost Ashley immediately, be being caught by Wright off Smedley- 3 for 78. Carter, usually a safe bat, feU a victim to Wright off Davies without scoring- 4 for 78. E. O. G. .Williams Meyrick joined the professional. Orton, opening his shoulders to Davies, sent his de- livery at terrific pace for 3, all run, while Meyrick sent the next ball to the boundary for 4. Walked then relieved Claude Dayies, and Meyrick was soon run out alter having soored 8. Dennis Rogers Jones was the next batsman, and after a single he sent Smedley to leg foi 4 A fine hit—the next ball lie hit hard along the grass, but what ought to have been a boundary only realised one ru.n. The Bangor men fielded brilliantly, otherwise the home score would have been considerably augmented. Orton next lifted Smedley to leg- for 4, while Dennis Jones drove Walker far a couple, and a beauti- ful straight drive for 4. R- E. Eva^ relieved Smedley, aJid. Donnas Jones lifted his first baU for 2 and the second to leg for a coupie- Mathews. who fihen went on for Walker, gott Dennis Jones caught behind the wicket by J. U- Jones.

Williams- Orion carrying his bat out for 34, wlhioh included two 4's, two 3's and three 2 s. The Llam-wst total realised 153. The students opened per J. B. Jones and R. E. Evans, Cruwys trundling from the town end and Orton from the Beittwo end- J. B. Jones bit Cruwys' ball to Norman Jones, who fielded smartly, and returned to Carter, who moved the bails before Jones reached the crease, Jones fallinc in in attempting to reach home m time. One for 2 runs. J- E. Mathews, the next bats- man, gave Orton, wlho failed to take a hard &w,tw,e at once- After scoring two, however, Matthews was out to a neat oatch by Meyiiok off Orton. 2 for 4. T- R Jones jioned Evans, -who, by the way, was stone-wallmg in the most approved 3tyle. He was, however, almost im- mediately afterwards smartly run out. 3 for 7.

THE CHAMPIONSHIP MEETINGS AT RHYL. THE SOUTH WALES PLAYERS. The one great theme which appeals to and rivets the attention of Welsh golfers theae days is the Welsh Championship Meeting, which opens on the picturesque links of the Rhyl Golf Club to-day (Thursday). Entries for the national gathering closed on Saturday last, and the aggre- gate of 58 reoeived promises some very interest- ing contests- The cream of South Wales golfers axe represented in the amateur championship of W'aies, including the present holder of the cup (Mr George Renwick, junr-, Royal Porthoawl Club). Mr L. A. Phillips (Newport), Mr John Duncan, Mr James Hunter, Mr Cyril TurnbuU, Mr Frank St-ableford, Mr R. J. Jones, and Mr C. J. Hamilton, a plus Hanger Hill player, who is aiso a member of the Royal Porthcawl Club- South Wales teams again show up well in the entry for the team championship, the six en- trants including Royal Porthcawl, Glamorgan- shire), Rhyl, Radyr, Southerndown, and Brecon. In spite of the long spell of dry weather, the course is in excellent playing condition. Whibt the principal clubs are to be repre- sented. the teams entered will not be so long as usual. Mr C. B. Stoddart. the Glamorganshire skipper, is unable to get away owing to business ties., and Mr James Hunter will, consequently, captain the tfnm. Other notable absentees will be Messrs Sidney Moore and Parker Ilaggarty, but tbo side will, nevertheless, be a, useful one, consisting as it does of Ilessris James Hunter, John Duncan, junr.. C. II. Turnbull, J. 1-1 Duncan, A. p. Thomas, and Dr. John Wallace. As Messrs C. C. Campbell and Bertie Turnbull have entered for the competitions, the defenders will have a good few reserves to fall back upon in case of need- Very few of the Radyr first players are able to make the journey to Rhyl, but there are some capital match players in the sid-e, which will con- sist of Messrs .T. P- Edmunds, E. W. Williams- Illtyd Allan, Wilfred Morgan, Dr. Jenkins, and another- The Soutiherndown club will have the choice of a good side from the following, who intend competing:—Messrs n. S- N. Carne. John Alexander, H. O. Irvine, W. T. M. Barry, L. G. Goitwaltz, 0. P. Trehearne, Llewelyn Davies and W. A. Witiiam- The probable combination that the Royal Porthcawi will put in the field includes Messrs Goo. Retnvick, junr., R. J. Jones, F. Stabieford, C. J. Hamilton and Tom Jones- Most of the South Walci players reached Rhyl on Tuesday and yesterday in order to have some practice on the. links before the real contests begin. The Welsh professional meeting will be hd at the conclusion cd the amateur contests, and not. as in previous years, before. The. an- nual meeting of delegates will take place at. the Queen's Hotel, Rhyl, at 8-30 o'clock on Friday evening, and the. Union dinner at tho same hotel on tl Saturday evening. Mr Wyndham Jenkins, Cardiff, is the hon. secretary of the meeting, which promises to be a great suocccs- Sir Richard Wiliia.ms-Bulkeley, Bart., the pre- sident of the Union, will stay in Rhyl during the meeting.
BOWLING. ftHYL v. COLWYN BAY. On Saturday, at the Marine Lake Bowling Ground, Rhyl, the local club had as viskoia a team from Calwyn Bay, and 14 players were matched on each side. Rhyl, who on the two previous Saturdays had defeated Denbigh and Llandudno., found that the Cohvyn Bay players had greatly improved since the clubs last met, and a capital match was witnessed. Tlse visitors succeeded in winning three of the singles and two of the doubles, the net win on tho match for Rhyl being 88 points- The scores wero as foUo\v,q RHYL. D. Owen 11 J- E. John-son 8-15 D.

MOTORING. ROYAL AUTOMOBILE CLUB. THE NEW FOREST MEET. The inter-club meets of the Royal Automobile and Associated Clubs, although only recently es- ablishod, are already proving' very popular. The New Forest meet. arranged by the parent body in association with the Hampshire Automo- bile Club, of which Lord Montagu of Beaulieu is the president, took place at Lyndhurst- Proceedings opened on Saturday morning at Lynclhurst with a meeting of the general com- mittee. Prince Francis of Teck, the chairman of the Royal Automobde Club, presided, and others present were the lIon. Arthur Stanley, M.P., Lord Montagu, of Boauliou, Sir Henry Norman, M P., and representatives of many of the pro- vincial clubs affiliated to the Royal Automobile Club. The main business before the meeting' J was a statement as to motor-car taxation pro- posals- Conferences between Mr Lloyd George a.nd members of Parlia.ment who were also well- known automobilists took place in the autumn of last year, and as a result a considerable modi- fication was made in the character of the pro- posed taxation. When the statement as to the outcome of the negotiations was put before the meeting on Saturday the general feeling was one of satisfaction at what individual members of the club who had conferred with the Chancellor of t.he Exchequer had done for automobilism. Other subjects under discussion were the measures to be taken to limit, the ri;k of acci- dents to children, in connexion with which the co-operation of elementary school teachers was invited; and the inovat.ion made by the Bristol and Gloucestershire Automobile Club of ap- pointing one official road patrol, who, working in conjunction with the police, will report aA cases of reckless as distinguished from merely fast driving- It was announced that with the new clubs recently admitted to the association the membership of the Royal Automobile Club now reaches a total of 15,250. On Saturday afternoon the members of the Hampshire Automobile Club gave a garden party in the grounds of Beaulieu Abbey, which was largely attended- On Saturday evening the fourth provincial dinner was he-Id in the Domus of Beaulieu Abbey- Prinoe Francis of Teok occupied the ctliair, and was supported by many prominent members of the club. Sir Henry Norman, M P., in responding to t.he toast of the evening, "Automobilism and the Royal Automobile Club," said it was becoming more widely recognised that the motor vehicle was intimately associated with the work of the world, and was no longer the appanage of wealth. tI
POSITIVE LLANDUDNO WITNESS. A Llandudno witness, who gave her evidence years a<go, now endorsee it in a most positive way, adding immeasurably to its value. When first, speaking of her case, Mrs E. Bes- wiok, of 11, Prospect Place, Ty-Gwyn Road, Llandudno, said:—"For a number of years I was a great sufferer from kidney trouble- I had severe pains in the small of my back, and some- times they wduid catch me quite suddenlV. I became so weak that I could hardly get up after bending down, and many a time had to take hold of something to help myself up. I also suffered with my head, and my heart seemed to be affeo- fced- I was feeling very ill at the time I be- gan using Doan's backache kidney pills, but I am glad to say they did me a world of good. They quite cuired me of ail the pains. (Signed) (Mrs E. Beswick.") Nearly 3 years after making the above state- ment, Mrs Bee wick said:—I have enjoyed the best of my health since I was cured by Doan's backache kidney pills." Doan's backache kidney pills are two shillings and nineponce per box, or six boxes for thirteen shillings and ninepence Of all chemists and stores, or post free direct from the Foster- McClellan Co., 8, Wells-street, Oxford-street, London, W- Be sure you get the same kind of pills as Mrs Beswick had.
The annual conference of t.he I.ndon and North-Western Railway Temperance Union was held in Liverpool on Saturday. It was re- ported that there had been an increase in mem- bership of about- 2000 during the year, and that in five years the roll strength had increased from 4777 te 19,560.
NORTII WALES COAST FOOTBALL LEAGUE. MEETING AT COLWYN BAY. SATISFACTORY FINANCIAL POSITION. Mr Percy Wecfees, Holyhead, presided over a meeting of the North Wales Coast Foot'>j-.l League at the Cafe Royal, Co>lw\n Bay, on Sat- urday afternoon, when there were also present: ,a,r Me.ssrs R. D. Richards (B&ng'or), Lewis Jones (Carnarvon), Anderson (Bangor), J. H Vincent (Llandudno), J. D. Owen (Colwyn Bay), Wilson (Conway), R- II. Williams (Ruthin), with the secretary, Mr Evan Lloyd-Williiaaris (Bangor). REFEREES. From the minutes it appeared that Referee Miller had been fined for being late in arriving at Denbigh when Carnarvon were playing- there in a. league g'anie, The &-crct.1,.ry now read a letter from Mr Mil- ler, stating he had been late owing to tiho diffi- culty he had experienced in finding the dressing rooms and grounds, and that, therefore, the secretary of the Denbigh Club was as much .0 blame as he (Mr Miller)- He, therefore, pro- tested iiie fiiue. It was decided to abide by the previous deci- sion. A complaint made L', the Llandudno Amateurs Club against Mr Tom Jones, Holywell, in the match Lkindudno v- Carnarvon callie up for discussion- It appeared from the letter that when the ball was going into the Carnarvon goal Mr Jcvies stopi>ed the game in order to take off his mackintosh- As Mr Jones had sent his explanation to the Association, t-he League decided to drop the matter. LATE STARTS. Pwllheli were reported for being forty minutes late in arriving' at Beaumaris on March 27th by Referee R. D- Richards, and weie fined 5s. Cohvyn Bay were 30 minutes late in arriving at Denbigh, Mr J. D. Owen explaining tha.t the tral 'ti was 20 minutes late in reaching tire station- A fine of Is was imposed- Mr J. D. Owen moved that; the Denbigh Club secretary be written to asking for an explanation of the fact that \\hen Colwyn Bay went there to play a League g'ame, they were tokl on appli- cation -at the ordinary dressing rooms to go and dress at the rooms where they dressed for a previous cup-tie, thus causing a late start in the game. Mr Richards having seconded, the motion was carried. In tiho Llanrwst v. Llandudno match it ap- peared that both teams were in time for kick-off, but as the Llanrwst ground was previously eng'aged for a schoolboy match the game was delayed- A fine of 2s 6d was imposed on the TJanrwst club. Mr J. D. Owen, Colwyn Bay, moved that Mr Albert Hughes be written to with regard to a remark alleged to have been passed by him with regard to one of the League's official referees, and this was carried. Mr Harry Jones, Llanrwst, wrote reporting the result of the gainc- Con v.-ay v. Llandudno, and stating' that his further report on this game would be sent later. It was decided to write to Mr Jones as King for the supplementary report- EAST v. WEST- The Treasurer (Mr 11. D. Richards) reported that the East v. West match this year had re- sulted in a financial lass to the League. The weather had ailected the gate, which reahsed £ 5 5s 3d, whilst the expenses amounted to £ 6 7s 9d, leaving a deficit of £1 2s 6d. It was now for the league to consider the advisability of buying cap3 for the players who took part in the game. Mr Vincent suggested (hat the Bangor Club be aisked to refund theLr charge of 10s 9d for tne 01 the Dajigor ground, etc-, but the liangor representatives pointed out that that was now impossible, because the Barigor Club had issued their balance sheet. Mr Vincent dwelt upon '-What the football of North Wales had done for the Bangor Club," and said ihe tihought that club might refund the sum, if only in the form of a donation. Mr Richards Look what Bangor has done for the football of North Wales. You know you •would not get as big a gate anywhere as you do at Bangor. The Chairman said that the meeting accepted the explanation of the representatives* Mr Vincent I beg to move that the Bangor Club Le written to asking them to refund part of the money in order that the League may give caps to the players in that match in order to encourage football. Mr J. D. Owen seconded, and this was carried. A vote of thanks was accorded the referee in the East v. West maldh (Mr E. Lloyd-Williams, Bangor) on the motion of Mr J. D. Owen, se- conded by Mr R. D. Richards- Khie Treasurer then presented the accounts. He stated that the Leag'uc commenced the sea- son wi,th a balsuice in 'hand from the previous year of £25 53 2d. The expenditure during the season was E8 7s, and the receipts 952 6j lOd, thus showing a balance in hand on the season's working of 1;43 19s lOd. The clear profit amount-ed to JElS 15s, a reduction of £5 on the profit realised last year* On the motion of Mr Vincent, seconded by Mr J. D. Owen, it was decided to purchase caps for the players in the East v. West match, and the Chairman, Treasurer, and Secrefcar-v were appointed a suii>committee to deal with this matter. It was also decided to invite tenders from local firms for supplying medals to the League champions, and the selection of the medals be left to the same sub-committee- LEAGUE CHAMPIONS. Mr Ridhards reported that he had taken the cup offered in tl)e -League championship (the "North Wales Chronicle" Challenge Cup) over to Beaumaris to be presented to the Beaumaris Club as the champions for the 1908-9 season. The Chairman: I take it that you would have refused to hand it over to the Beaumaris Club if there had been any serious complaints as to the club havmg played any ineligible players? Mr Richards: Yes, certainly. The action of the Treasurer was approved. The Chairman heartily congratulated Ruthin upon winning the cup in the junior section of the League for the second year in succession, and expressed the hope that they would Willl it again next year- THE ANNUAL MEETING was fixed for the 19th of June at the Station Hotel, Llandudno Junction. INADEQUATE REPRESENTATION. Mr Lewis Jones, of Carnarvon, complained that the League was inadequately represented <m the Football Association of Wales at present. Some di.scu?sion took place on this matter several of the members pointing out that most of the members of the Association were Wrex- ham men. Mr R. D.

Over a thou&and in number, the collection is an extensavo one, and. except in a very few in- stances, the translations are excollent. The compiler expresses the hope that the volume will be "of some service to those who would be- come familiar with the wise sayings of the CVmry of old." Of this he may be sure, for it is a decided acquisition to the small List of useful Welsh handbooks in existence, and its price, Is 6d net, is reasonable. BIBBY'S ANNUAL. Another issue lias reached us of the splendid magazine through which Mr Joseph Bibby conveys his annual message to the public. Always boautifully got up, this year's number eclipscs all its pre- decessors. The cover itself is worth keeping, whilst the illustrations, coloured and otherwise are without exoopt.ion as artistically produced as their subjects are chaste and elevating. In addition to a number of interesting articles* by well-known writers, the reading matter includes two long articles by the editor on "The Socialism of Jesus"—which, he says, is "a form of socialism which robs no one, but enriches all"and "Some Words on Unemployment." The annual is sold at Is as usual.

TRANSFER OF TEACIIEM. The Staff Committee recommend that adver- tisements for teachers be discontinued for the present arid that the existing vacancies on the staffs of schools bo filled up by the following' transfers:—Misw A. G. Jones, Dwygyfylchi, to Talysarn Council School; Miss G- A. Hughes, St. Pauls, Bangor, to Penmaemnawr Church School; Miss M. E.

The Staff Committee recommend that certifi- cate classes be discontinued at the end of the present school year, and that classes for supple- mentary teachers cnly be conducted next year, and that all supplementary teachers be informed that the committee cannot guarantee their con- tinued engagement in the capacity of supplo- ment.arv teachers after March, 1911. MEDICAL INSPECTION OF SCHOOL CHILDREN. The Board of Education in a letter state that they are disposed to Tegurd with sympathy the proposal of the committee to supplement the work of medical inspection by making arrange- ments with local Nursing Associations, Com- mittees of the Charity Organisation Society and Lady Managers for visiting certain children in their homes and to place sums of money at the disposal of these organisations, according' to a certain scale- PENMAENMAWR CHURCH SCHOOL. The Board of Education wished to know what. steps had been taken to carry out the require- ments of tihe Board with regard to this school and the Building Committee, decided that in view of the refusal of the managers to provide accomodation, the Committee were not able to do anyLliing in the matter until the re-arrange- ment of school accomodation for the entire dis- trict was dealt with. PROPOSED NEW COUNCIL SCHOOL AT GYFFIN AND CVVM-PENMACIINO- Three petitions have been received by the Board of Education against, t.he proposal to pro- vide a Council School at Gyflin- The Secretary reported to the Building* Com- mittee having visited Cwm (Penmachno) and examined two or three buildings suggested as suitable for use as temporary schoolrooms, buit the only room tha-t ,seemed to b3 suitable for the purpose was a vestry attached to the C.M. Chapel. Trustees, however, stated that the con- ditions of the lease procludod the possibility of their letting it for the use of the Committee. NEW COUNCIL SCHOOL AT GLAN- WYDDEN.

A iiRYL DEALER'S DEATH. EVIDENCE AT THE COFsOMEK'S INQUEST, Considerable interest was manifested in an in- quest conducted by Mr F. Li. Jones, the county coroner, at Kiiyi, on Saturday, toucn.ng the death of Francis Daniel Jones* a genetai cicaicr, 1 ynowydd-torrace, Ell yl. 'J ii-o Uoroner saici tne deceased had apparently been in indliferent health for some time, and shortly betore his death consulted Dr. Summer- lull, who advised him to havo several teeth ex- tracted- The deceased thereupon saw Mr Thur- good, who extracted the teeth. licensed be- came worse, and died on the following Wednes- day. Mr L.3,ws Jones, solicitor, intúmatcd that be was present to watch the proceedings on behalf of Mr Thurgood. Mrs Catherine Jones, the widow, said her hus- band was 66 years of age, and had complainr-d of his health during the previous fortnight* After having the tectii extracted he complained on Sat- urday evening of being in pain, hut Dr. Sum- merhill was not sent for until Wednesday morn- ing. Mr Thurgood. Rhyl, elected to give evkVnoe* In reply to the Coroner, he said he was un- registered- He was engaged as a teeth extrac- tor and adapter- On the previous Saturday the deceased came to him and said he wanted some teeth extracted, adding that he had been told ho had to have them out. There were three taeth and seven stumps to be extracted. The mouth wx;s first cleansed with an antiseptic solu- tion, the gums were frozen, and the teeth üx- tracted. He applied eucaine. The Coroner: Is eucaino different to cocaine? Witness: It is slower and safer, and has not the intoxicating effect of cocaine. Witness said the operation lasted about ten minutes, and the extraction did not appear to affect the deceased in the least. Tho deceased expressed himself per- fectly satisfied. After tho operation the gums were thoroughly washed with an antiseptic solu- tion, and tho mouth was also well washed. lie was always very particular about his instruments, which he produced- In answer to the Coroner, witness said he had j been practising- in Hhyl since February, 1903. He was apprenticed in 1892 to a practitioner who, lie believed, was an American, and held an Ameri- can degree. Witness believed he was fully quali- fied, and that his degrees were accepted and re- cognised- Witness had not attended any dental college. II-o had been assistant at, various places in England, and also in South Africa, but had not been assistant to any mgisterod qualified man. He held no certificate in dental surgery, but. had studied and taken lessons in dentistry. and when he could afford it lie proposed to quali- fy himself without going to college. MEDICAL EVIDENCE. Dr. Sumrnerhill said deceased came to see him on the evening of the 12th inst-, when he con- cluded that he was .sufTering from neuralgic pains. He was sent for on the following Saturday, and found that deceased was still suffering from pains in the head. His mouth was in a terribly septic condition, and witness advised him to have the stumps and teeth removed- When he men- tioned Mr Thurgood, witn-MS told him that he was not a qualified man. and recommended him to see a qualified man. He heard no more about deceased, and concluded that he was better after the extractions, but on Tuesday morning he was again called to deceased, when h:s wife said the pain was no better. On the following morning he was again called to come to the deceased. He found him in a comatose state, and witness came to the conclusion that he was dying from septic meningitis, a.nd in his opinion the septic condition of the deceased's mouth prior to the extraction was sufficient to account for the meningitis- He did not think that the sept:c condition had been increased in any way by the extraction- In fact, meningitis had set in on Wednesday, when he first saw him. Deceased was in such mental agony when he first saw him that lie could not say much. but apjvirently lie had been suffering for years before his death. In his opinion the administration of eucaine was quite safe- The Coroner said there did not appear to be any blame attributable in connection with the ex- traction of the teeth, which, according- to tho evidence, had been performed in a proper way, and the method of extraction was not. in any way responsible for the death. Dr. Summerhill said that he was satisfied that the meningitis was not in any way incurred by the extraction. It was not lu's (the coroner's) place to deal with the question of qualified and unqualified practitioners, but evidently in that oase no blame was attached to Mr Thurgood. The jury returned a verdict c,f, death from "Natural causes." in accordance with the mecbcal evidence, expressing sympathy with the family-
MEDICAL INSPECTION OF FLINTSHIRE SCHOLARS 50 PER CENT. WITH DEFECTIVE EYESIGHT. The I1 hntshue Education Authority have just published the report of Dr. A. E. Williams (the schools medical officer) of his medical inspection of school child.ren from September 1st to Decem- ber 31st, 1909. The number of children ex- amined was 2112, of whom 1117 were boys and 995 girls. Of all the children examined 58.5 per cent, were above the average height and 41.5 per cent, below; and 52.1 per cent* were above the average weight and 47.8 per cent. be- low. In 15.9 per cent, of the cases nutrition was poor. As regards cleanliness the children wero in excellent condition. On the subject of the children's footgear the report states: "I should much like to se-e a re- turn to the use of clogs for children. They are cheaper, last longer, and are far more effec- tive in keeping the feet warm and dry than cheap leather boots. Of the 2112 children, 115 had sound teeth, 978 less than four decayed and 1019 four or more decayed. With regard to vision the report states: "The most startling result revealed by the inspection is the appalling condition of the eyesight of the school children, there hieing no fewer than about 50 per cent. whose vision is one-half ttu normal or worse. The direct causes of this state of things are difficult of explanation, but, apart from the congenital and hereditary factors, one is inclined to the opinion that the inadequate lighting in the schools plays an important part in their production. A special sub-committee, which was appointed to consider the matter of treatment, among other things resolved that the school medical officer shall examine tho worst ca-es, and, where necessary, prescribe spectacles, for which the parents will be charged" contract, price. Accordingly a scheme was prepared, ail l is now under consideration by the Board of Education, which, if approved, will undoubtedly do much towards ameliorating tlie oondition." It should bexpln.incd that the children hitherto examined only constitute about one-seventh of the children in the schools of the county.
