C^r™THE~ LATIT" PRESIDENT GARFIELD PRESIDENT GARFIELD is dead." Such is tho brief but significant telegram which reached our shores on Tuesday morning. Wo were prepared for the sad intelligence nevertheless it has been received with the greatest rogret, not only by England, but by the civilized world. Tbo President passed away at 10.50 on Monday evening. Ho did his best to live. His Christian courage was remarkable throughout.. He was favoured also in other respects. His wife was as a ministrant angel by his side. He had the besthelp which medical science could afford and public prayer was made for him. With these advantages we hoped that he would be spared. Medical men have, however, from the first anticipated his death. Their expectations have at last been justified. The President's loss will be doubly felt in America. The withdrawal from political life of an influence so Christian is a great calamity. Suspense in the great Republic has now broken out into a great sorrow. England also mourns the loss of the President. Her heart has been strongly moved by this great calamity. She has followed the fluctua. tions of the conditions of the late President with the utmost anxiety. Sorrow which is common by sympathy has a strange power to unite human hearts. This sad event will in many ways be sanctified to the American Re- public. As for Mrs Garfield, all hearts arc beating in sympathy with her. The strength which has sustained her through months of suspense will not now be withdrawn from her.
igotes (fnb Summarjr. Several members of the Board of Commis- sioners feel that the present mode of conducting the annual elections is not satisfactory, and a special meeting of the board was held on Monday last to consider the desirabilty of subsituting a new system. Great diversity of opinion existed among the members upon the subject, and after three hours' talking, and a little personalities 5had been indulged in, the meeting terminated,tho question being referred to a special committee or, in other words, it it stood exactly as it did at the commencement of the meeting.
The majority of the commissioners seem to be in favour of incorporating tho town. This would be an advisable course to pursue, and we would like to see preliminary steps being taken to secure this end early.
At the annual meeting of the North Wales Medical Association, held at Pwllycrochan Hotel, Colwyn Bay, on Thursday, it was decided to hold tho next annual meeting at Rhyl.
At the St. Asaph Board of Guardians, on Thursday, the master's report shewed a decrease in the number of inmates, as compared with the corresponding period last year but the number of inmates relieved during the past fortnight shewed an increase over the corres- ponding period last year.
The Liverpool Echo has taken upon itself to comment on a letter from Mr J. C. Hanmer. to the Advertiser for last week. After a brief elucidation of what he considers contempt of court, the writer of these comments goes on to doubt Mr Hanmer's ability to pay 20s and costs, and adds that Surely a man who took posses- sion of his family estates in March could pay 20s and costs in a month in August." This scribe is certainly not acquainted with the facts of the caso or he would remember that on the 11 memorable day in March," Mr Hanmer failed in his attempt to take possession of the family estate, but was, rather, himself taken possession of and lodged in the Hanmer lock-up.

Vagrants relieved, 80 last year, 72, showing an increase of 11.—The children had their last trip to Rhyl,where they enjoyed themselves well, by visiting the Winter Gardens, Pier and other places.—The clerk was instructed to thank the companies for their kindness. THE CHILDREN Appeared before the Board, and, in answer to the chairman, the master and mistress said all the children were well. MAINTENANCE. Thomas Edwards, Rhyd-y-mocl, Abergele, whose mother had recently died, was ordered to pay 5s. per month, arrears of relief. Mrs Robinson, Gemig street, St. Asaph wrote to the Board and applied for a little relief. The money sho received from her sons was not enough to keep her, and bhe would be grateful for a little help.—The relieving officer said the house she lived in was free of rent, and she received 4s. 6d. a week.—The Chairman said they could not grant any relief under the cir- cumstances. TIIE COMPLAINT AGAINST A RELIEVING OFFICER. At the last Board a communication was read from the Local Government Board complaining that Mr John Jones, as vaccination officer, had not properly fulfilled his duties, and requesting an explanation in the matter. Mr Jones now sent a letter Lo the Board, in which he stated he had neglected in a few instances, but assured the Board that he would be careful in the future.—The guardians accepted the explanation. THE CALLS. The Clerk said said that he had prepared the calls for the next half-year, which would be £000 Jess than the preceding half-year.—The Guardians remarked that was very gratifying. "TILE CHALLENGE FLAG OF THE IWTHIN UNION." Mr Roberts (Geinas) walked up to the table, and presented the chairman with a small flag with Ruthin Castle as a monogram, and the following note enclosed—" The challenge flag of the j-futhin Union." Mr Roberts said it had been sent to him by post. He did not know where it came from no more than the man in the moon (laughter).—The Chairman Have you any motion to make Mr Itoberts-- Mr Roberts: No, Sir, you are the captain.— The Chairman Then it will lie on the table (laughter).—One or two members suggested that it be sent back to the donor—a gentleman 1 z, in the district.

SUDDEN DEATH AT RHYL. On Thursday night, a young girl about 19, named Esther Davies, a native of Newmarket, and employed as a housemaid at 20, West Parade, met with her death very suddenly. The girl complaiucd of a pain in her side on Saturday evening aud went to bed early, but got up the following' morning, apparently in good health, and went to Manchester by an ex- cursion on Monday. She performed her duties and appeared to be quite well up to Wednesday night, when she again complained of a pain in her side, and went to bed. She seemed to get worse shortly after- wards, and Dr Oirulestoue was sent for. That gentleman was immediatly in attendance and did all in his power to alleviate the unfortunate girl's agony. The docter saw her several times during the day on Thursday, and when he paid his last visit, about 10 o'clock in the evening, he pronounced the patient better, but in an hour after poor Esther was no more. The girl's mother was communicated with, and ar- rived early yesterday morning. Dr G-irdlestone did not feel satisfied as to the cause of death having obtained the mother's consent, he, in company with Dr Carstairs, made a post mortem examination on the body yesterday,and found a large ulcer inside the stoai« acb. Both doctors wero fully convinced that the girl's death was attributable to the ulcer, which, in their opinion, had been gradually forming for months.

A letter received Gentlemen,—It may, perhaps, interest you to know that, after an extended trial, I have found your Glycerine Jujubes of con- siderable benefit (with or without medical treatment) in almost all forms of throat disease.

AMERICAN ITEMS. "To this nig it's masquerade," quoth Dick, By pleasure I am beckoned, And think 'twould be a pleasant trick To go as Charles the Second." Tom felt for repartee a thirst, And thus to Richard said You'd better go ns Charles the First, For that requires no head." IF a Japanese husband tella his wife she must remain at home, and she goes out notwithstanding, he can smite her 100 times with the bamboo. A couNTit? undertaker boasts that he has the best hearse in the placo, and defies anybody that ever rode in it to say to the contrary." A FAT man lost his appetite the other day, and tho unlucky finder being a poor man with a large family it ruined him in less than a fortnight. A COLOURED preicher remarked When God made de fust man, he set him up agin de fence to dry." Who made de fence ? interrupted an eager listener, "Put dat man ou:! exclaimed the coloured preacher; such questions as that destroy all de theology i;i de worlct! A DOUBLE Suor.-A lazy physician, who had been out shooting, on coming home complained that his luck had been very bad, and wound up by saying, "JI didn't kill anything." That's because you didn't stay at home and attend to your legitimate business!" spitefully retorted his wife. A VILLAGE schoolmaster, in examining a read- ing' dilES, asked the bead of the class, What is artificial manure t' Don't know," said he; and the Seine reply was given by four other boys. But a pre- cocious youngster not yet in his teens was equal to the occasion, and said, Please, sir, it's the stuff they grow artificial flowers in!" IT was at a late quarterly meeting of Seventh Day Baptist churches in Wisconsin that two clergymen were to present papers on the same day, and, the ques- tion of precedence having arisen, Mr. A. sprang to his ftot, and said, I think Brother B. ought to have the bett placo on the programme; he is an older man than 1 inn, and, besides, is full of bis subject." When the audience remembered that Brother B's subject was The Devil," a cheerful smile seemed to beam around the assembly. IN New Hampshire, last summer, some men were mowing, and accompanying them wai a large IS is-found land dog, who watched the operations and saw E:o;je moles start in the grass; the dog c!u_: several, digging for them and killing them. A once the dog disappeared, and was gone for sometime. Looking up the field in the direction of the farm- house, our informant saw the dog trotting dowh towards the men, and by his side was trotting the house cat, the greatest cordiality always existing botween the two animals. The dog brought the cat directly to the swath, and soon pussy understood what was up. As soon as a mole was started she caught and killed him, and, when one re- treated to a hole, the dog scented and dug him out, the cat in this case killing the mole and so the dog and cat hunted together for quite a time, until they wearied of the sport. We suppose we shall bo told that instinct governed the animals, and that they bad no language in which to communicate with each other. A COLOURED man was busily engaged in saw- ing some wood for a Galveston gentleman. The man and brother" had a large Masonic breastpin on his shirt bosom. "Do you coloured masons and white masons affiliate ?" Don't fillvate worth a cent." What's the reason?" Dunno, boss, but I's tried it. Dar is a bar keeper in dis town what toted dis heah berry same emblem. I was in distress hadn't had a dram all dat mornin'. I cum in and gabe de distress signal." Did he respond ?" He didn't respond right. He made a motion at de doah wid one hand, and reached under de bar. I made de sign once moah, and he fetched me between de-shouldera wid de bung starter jes' as I was gettin' out de doab." INSTEAD of calling the months by ridiculous old names, derived from Latin, we should describe them by names which would suggest the most promi- nent qualities of the months. That would enable the children to learn the names readily on the Kinder- garten plan, as applied by Mr. Squeers. Tne months, if this eensible plan were adopted, would be as follows: January would be Slushuary February Slopuary March, Winduary, April, Rainuary; May, Budu- hary June, Warmuary; July, ROfutuary; Augast, Broil uary September, Chiluary October, Oolduary November, Frokititary; December, Snowuary. IN a sermon delivered recently at New York by an Oneida Indian, who is an ordained clergyman, the preacher thus quaintly rebuked the sin of pro- fanity "I am thankful," said he, "that the Creator did not give the Indian enough language to allow him to be profane without first learning English." FATHER," exclaimed a hopeful eight year-old. I'm American, ain't I ?" Yes, my boy, you are," responded the delighted parent. Well, then," ex- claimed young America, in a thoughtful manner, when I grow up to be a man, I will be able to lick two like you—won't I? The proud parent's answer is not recorded. A FRIEND writes from the Colorado mountains to say that be got as ravenous as a raven among the ravines, and sat down m one of the gorgeous gorges and gorged himself gor-- "-isingly. THE following 1. an extract from the album kept at the falls Next to the bliss of seeing Sarah, Is that of seeing Ni-a-ga-ra!" A COLOURED brother from the South recently came to a Northern church to solicit money in behalf of some interest with which he was connected. After the brother had made his appeal, one Df the members of th" church arose, and wished to know why every body seemed to coma to their church to beg money. Dr. Gordon, the pastor, mortified at these inhospitable words, said he feared the remarks would be very dis- couraging to the coloured brother, and regretted they were uttered. Whereupon the coloured man promptly roce and said he could explain the matter. When I goes shooting ducks," said he, I goes whar de ducks be." JUDGE CALDWELL, of N orih Carolina, at one time was obliged to cill upon an old darky to open his court. It was evidently the first time he had acted in the capacity of bailiff. He began Oh, yes! ah, yes! oh, yes! De hono'blo de Co't is now on de bench." Then, after hesitating a moment, as if not knowing what to say, he seemed to hit it, and ended by ex- clairaiijg, "An' may de Lawd have mercy on his soul! Caldwell retorted immediately, That's right, my man; that's right. If there ever was a court that needed the mercy of God, it's this one." GREAT is the force of habit. The seaman can- not sioap soundly on tbe shore because he misses the tossing of the ship and the roaring of the wind. We heard lately of a forlorn widow who, the third night after her husband's death, sat at the window watching the Etars with sleepless eyes. At labt her thoughts, sad and weary, broke into soliloquy This trying to go to sleep," she said, without a quarrel of some kind, is so new that I can't stand it." Just then two men under her window fell to fighting. She watched the conflict to the end, then quietly undressed, saying lô Thst's kind of homelike," and in a few minutes was in b; d and fast asleep.

THE SEASON. Now that the harvest of this watering place is drawing to a close we may take the opportunity of making a review of it, and to deduce from it some lessons for our future guidance. As in the harvest of the country the weather is the most important element in determining its success, but there is one great difference. In the case of land you have one certain element to rely upon against a fickle one. The land and the crop do not vary like the showers and sun- shines of our unreliable climate. la the case of watering places }'uu have two fickle elements to deal with. In addition to an unreliable climate you have the equally unreliable temper of your visitors. Rhyl has been moderately successful in ob- taining public patronage. It has occasionally met with reverses owing to over-speculation or a succession of bad seasons. But on the whole it has gone ori steadily increasing for tho lasL forty years. Though other towns have sprung up along the North Wales coat possessing special attractions of their own, aud threatening to become formidable rivals, still our little town has not only held its own, but kept on movin- in the even tenor of its way. This must be no. ifhyl possesses natural advantages which cannot be surpassed by any of its competitors. It is the first watering placo on the Chester and Holy- head Railway, and therefore the nearest to, and most accesible from, the manufacturing towns of England. The town is built on tho sea side of the railway, giving the advantage of sea frontage to the houses set apart for visitors, with a splendid promenade and beach* all combined, without the trouble, inconvenience, or risk of getting over bridges or wading through subterraneous passages, or stumbling over railway crossings. The sea and the sands, the scenery, the atmosphere, the accommoda- tion and everything else have been so often dwelt upon that we need not dilate upon those points. After all we feel that we arc not mak- ing that progress which we ought to make, and which is quite within our reach, if we only managed the business properly. There are too many houses to let, and among those let, there has been too little business done of late years to warrant any further developement, without an adequate publicity being given to the advan. tages we have to offer. For the last four or five years there has been a tendency to sliortleii the season. Formerly, the season commenced in earnest about the third week in June, and lasted without much diminution until the last week in September. Now, the high tide does not come in till the last week in July, and lasts scarcely a month. Then it dwindles down until the town is almost deserted by the end of Sep- tember. 'I his year the season did not last a month. The town was half empty by the end of August, owing to the sudden break in the weather, and by this time there is scarcely a family left. Another serious drawback is the reduction in the prices charged for apartments. Owing to the lateness of the season, lodging- house keepers tired of waiting, and over-anxious to make up their rent-money, out-bid each other to such an extent, that unscrupulous visitors, taking advantage of it, the receipts are made less by hundreds of pounds per week. Here again we have two elements at work undermin- ing the prosperity of Rhyl. The duration of tho season reduced to at least one half and the prices to about two-thirds—making the total receipts for the season proper not more than one-third of what they were in former years. Wo have seriously to think of some means by which we can retrieve our position. While this great reduction is going on the rents are as high I as ever, and the rates go on increasing. We think that the rents should be reduced by at least 20 per cent. As to the rates, we are of of opinion that much saving might be effected by making more of the manure supply of the town. The great want of Rhyl, however, is advertising. It is not sufficiently known. There are millions of people living a huudrcd and fifty or two hundred miles away from it, who have never heard the name. How can we expect to prosper- by the seaside of rivals, who make their attractions known, if wo remain wholly indifferent. Had it not been for Birm- ingham we should have collapased years ago. Of late Birmingham has been transferring its patronage to another watering place near us. \m we not attract our friends back and induce others to come as well P If we could form an association to carry out the schomo of general advertising which was suggested some time ago, a great deal might be done during next winter and spring to prepare for the season of 1882. There is no time to lose. We have seen what selfishness and narrow-mindedness have done for us in various way. Let us now try what broader and more enlightened views may do in furthering the general interests of the commun. ity. I
At the last meeting of the St. Asaph Guardians, considerable amusement was caused by One of the members walking up to the table and pre- senting tho chairman with a flag bearing "Ruthin Castle" in monogram, which he bad received by post. Tho sender of this flag, nor the meaning it is intended to convey is not known, but there is a slrevvd suspicion afloat that it is a hint from the Schoolmaster of the Board," for the St Asaph Guardians to take a lesson from the Ruthin Guardians.
Three great representative gatherings have occupied public attention during the week the Methodist (Ecumenical Council, the Trades Union Congress, and the Land League Conven- tion. The first bears striking testimony to tbe influence, vitality, and essential unity of the Methodist Connexion throuthout the world, and it says a great deal for the t-ensc of the Metho- dists that the various branches of tho Connexion have been able to meet in friendly debate. The Council proves, too, how a vast ecclesiastical organization can be maintained in the highest state of efficiency without leaning upon the State, or deriving its revenues from any sourse but the good-wili of its own members. The Trades Union Congress, in its way, is equally remarkable. The moderate and intelligent tone of the discussions, and the good order with which the proceedings were conducted, show how false an estimate was at one time formed of the effects of combination among working men and the reception at the Mansion House may be said to have completed the victory of Trades Unions over tha ignorance and prejudice of the middle classes. Certain Conservative papers have made as much as possible of the excitement which necessarily prevailed when a number of Fair Trade delegates who had no proper standing at the Congress were expelled, but it is doubtful whether any other assembly would have behaved better. Of the Irish Con- vention it is unfortunately impossible to write in similar terms. The hatred of the English Government expressed by the speakers, and the evident anxiety to keep up the League at all cost, served to show that therc.is a good deal yet to be done beforo Ireland is thoroughly pacified. Never- theless it is open to doubt whether the country will much longer follow Mr Parncll's lead, and the summoning of this Convention may possibly be one of the last acts of his rule over a large section of the Irish people. If the Land Act works well and brings material contentment the mere desire for separation from Great Britain will probably lay little hold upon the population
ATTEMPTED CFLLL]> MILDER. The police are at present e.oo in investigating a very remarkable caso of at,tii,)tcd oMM m ^rdeft which bat occurred at the west-tiid 01 metropolis It appears that at an early hour on the morning of Sunday, the 12th inet., as a con-cao!e of the 0 divisiov- was patrolling his beat down B -itoil, aii'a- buildings# Solio-square, London, be itard the noise of a child crying following the di.-eution from whenoe the sound proceeded, ho at last noticed large bundle lying on a door step, and this on clossr examination was discovered to bo a little girl, apparently about two years of a-c.
