LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,—Having been invited to offer myself for election as one of the Rhyl Improvement Commissioners, I have determined to do so and I hope you will support me with your votes and interest. Although I may not be well acquainted with you personally, I have no doubt some of the members of my family have been well known to you, especially my uncle, the late Dr Lloyd, of Ty'n Rhyl, who was for some time a Commissioner. Should you honour me with your support, it shall be my care to second all measures which may tend to the prosperity of the town of Rbyl and especially those measures which may tend towards the reduction of the rates, and the encouragement of trade in Rhyl by affording improved accom- modation and facilities for visitors as well as for residents. I am, Ladies and Gentlemen, yours faithfully, Ty'n Rhyl, Rhyl, LLHWKLYN LLOYD. March 26th 1885. ELECTION OF COMMISSIONERS. TO THE RATEPAYERS OF THE DISTRICT OF RHYL. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,—My term of office having expired I again solicit your support at the forthcoming election. During the six years I have been a member of this Board, I have endeavoured to the best of my ability to promote all measures oonducive to the prosperity of the town. With regard to the future, taking the Mersey Tunnel and other Railway matters into consider- ation, Rhyl is, in my opinion, destined in the near future to become a large residential distiict. And during the ccu 89 of its development many matters of importance will necessarily occupy the attention of the Improvement Commissioners. If I have the honour of being again elected, I will give all matters brought before the Board my most serious consideration, and whilst promoting all necessary improvements will endeavour to study economy so that the present district rate may in a short time be reduied. As the town has increased so much in size I shall be unable to make a hous 3 to house canvass, but I trust that will not prevent ry receiving your support and interest on the ninth of April next,-I am, Ladies and Gentlemen, your obedient servant, 63, High Street, Bhyl.

Having for the paat nine years represented your interests at the board, I trust that my conduct has been such as to merit a renewal of your confidence by supporting me at the forthcoming election, on the 9th of April. As there are no very important questions at present involving the deliberations of tha board, I need but give a single pledge that the general routine business shall be carefully watched, and that as far as I am concerned the ratepayers of the town may rely upon a policy of economy—compa- tible with such measures as will promote the pros- perity of the district.

THE RHYL COMMISSIONERS AND THEIR BAND. Now that the Vernal equinox is passed, it has become our necessity to look after everything which may prove beneficial to the town and its inhabitants. We therefore regard with interest the proceedings which took place at the special meeting of Commissioners on Friday last, when the arrangements for the supplying of a band were under discussion. Our readers no doubt have carefully read and considered the different recommendations (of which we gave a report seriatim) of a com- mittee comprising representatives of the town, the Pier Company, and the proprietor of the Winter Gardens, on this question and doubtless will agree with us that these re- commendations were most thoroughly and carefully drawn out, and reflect the utmost credit upon their compilers. Nevertheless, we, in the interests of the inhabitants at large, and with no illfeeling of any kind towards the companies mentiomd, must enter our earnest protest against the adoption of the recom- mendations as presented. We take it to be the object of having a band in the town at all is principally to attract visitors to the place, to amuse them when sojourning fn it, and to create in them a wish to come again. Now the 2nd recommendation is-to have a band of 7 performers in the town from 9 till 10.30 a.m., that is, for a period of one hour and a half in the early morning; and recommenda- tion 7 is-to have a band of 14 performers on the promenade from 6.30 to 7.45 p.m., that is for a period of one and three quarter hours; while recommendation 10 adds that during the latter performance thera are to be vocalists as in the previous years. To sum up —three hours and a quarter is the length of time that the band is to be allowed to play for the public at large, and that time is at the inconvenient hours of what we may call early morning and early evening. How many of our inhabitants, who are so busily employed catering in their various ways for the comfort and well-being of the visitors, will be able to hear one strain of the band at 10 o'clock in the morning, and how many ot our working-men, and working-women too, will be able to leave their onerous daties at 71 o'clock in the evening ? Surely our own in- habitants, leaving out the visitors, ought to have some consideration paid to them, and in- directly they may be regarded—at any rate part-paymasters of the band. But where is the band to be located between the hours mentioned ? Well here is recommendation 8 —concert on the Pier from 11.15 a.m. to 1 p.m—that is, one and three quarter hours. As this is precisely the length of time allowed for the concert on the promenade in the even- ing, no one can find any fault on that score. But we submit, is not that just the time when the majority of the visitors who remain in Rhyl will be most likely to be in the town and on the promenade ? Why are they to be compelled, if they wish for music, to go on to the Pier ? And would it not be rather monotonous to go to the same place and at the same hour every day of their stay, if they are lovers of music and desirous of gratifying their taste for it. Then again recommendation 5-concert in the Winter Gardens from 3 to 4.30 p.m., viz., one and a half hours. Now, no doubt the Winter Gar. dens present many attractions, and it is to the interest of the town that healthful and harmless places of amusement and recreation should be supported, but is it likely that the afternoon concert will prove a greater attrac- tion to the visitors than the different concerts and performances provided in previous years ? Here it will be as well to call the attention of our readers to the recommendations made at a previous meeting of the band committee when it was proposed to have a band of 18 performers in June and September, to be angmented in July and August to 24 per- formers, these performers to be equally divided among the three places-tho Prome- nade, the Pier, and the Winter Gardens-and to play at each fr)m 8 till 10 o'clock each evening. Under this arrargement there was no preference given to any party, the public are left free to choose where they will go if they wish to hear the band and as admit- tance to the Pier and the Winter Gardens has to be paid for, those who are so inclined to enjoy the perhaps comparatively more select company at those two places are perfectly at liberty so to do, while those who may per- haps have only a few minutes to stroll about in can also enjoy the delightful strains of mel- odyin the cool of the evening. But here step in the representatives of the Pier and Winter Gardens, and declare that it would be useless for them to amalgamate on these conditions, as the entertainment on the Parade after 8 o'clock was ruinous to other places." On this, therefore, these recommendations fell through, and as it appears that the project for amal- gamation came first from the Commissioners, the further recommendations were prepared, which carefully exclude any performance of the band on the Promenads after 7.45 in the evening. This exclusion of any musical performance on the Parade after 7.45 p.m, is the one 'J' great mistake in the whole batch of recom- mendations, and the one which we most earnestly protest against, and the one which we consider would be most injurious to the welfare of the town in every way. The Promenade is free to the public at large, they can come when they like, they can stroll here and there, they can remain as long a time or as short a time as they prefer in fact, they have perfect freedom as to their doings. It is accessible from all parts of the town it is within easy reach of the railway station, so that visitors from the Vale having to wait between trains can spend the interim on the Promenade, and enjoy the soothing strains of the music, or perhaps listen to some favorite song. Indeed, we may assert that many of the inhabitants of our neighbouring towns are induced to come to Rhyl for an hour or so in the evening mainly for the purpose of hearing the band on the Promenade. Were there to be no performance, there would be no inducement the going on the Pier or into the Winter Gardens would take more time than they probably could spare, in fact would be a greater undertaking. Then, there are the visitors, who may have been enjoying the beauties of the surrounding neighbour- i hood, too tired to go the length of the Pier or even to the Winter Gardens, but quite equal to the few minutes' walk which would take them to the vicinity of the band stand. Again, as we said before, when and where are our own towns-folk to have any enjoy- ment of the band ? Which of them and how many will be able to leave their business any time before 7.45 ? We most emphati- cally say, done of those who require relax- ation the most, and why then should the in- terest of the Pier Company and of the Winter Gardens be studied to the detriment of the whole town. Let the two companies provide attractive entertainments. No doubt there will always be a sufficient number of disea- gaged persons to attend them but in all earnestness we say,lengthen rather than short- en the time for the performance of the baid on the public Promenade both in the morn- ing and in the evening. Had we space we could comment CD the several recommendations, and prove that their tendency was more for the benefit of the companies than for the benefit of the town at large. Many of the ratepayers are averse to any payment from the rates to the Band, considering that the compulsory payments in the shape of rates and taxes weigh too heavily upon them, while those who are blessed with abundant means and wish well to their native town, or the town of their adoption, would no doubt gladly give voluntarily much more than their legal share. Further, if we remember rightly, a trial was made some years ago on one band between the Pier and the town, the result of which was very unsatisfactory for both parties. Why, then, should a 12 month's trial be given with very likely a similar re- sult ? We say again, both the Pier Com- pany and the Winter Gardens have our best wishes for their success, that in any way which we could aid them we would most gladly do it, but we cannot agree that the interests and enjoyment of the town itself should suffer for the benefit of private parties.

HINTS FOR THE HOME., THE WORTH OF A SMILE.- Who can tell the valul of a smile ? It costs the giver nothing, but is beyond price to the erring and relenting, the sad and echeerlss, the lost and forsaken. It disarms malice- subdues temper-turns hatred to love-revenge to kindness—and paves the darkest paths with gems of sunlight. A smile on the brow betrays a kind heart, a pleasant friend, an affectionate brother, a dutiful son, a happy husband. It adds a charm to beauty, it decorates the face of the deformed, and makes a lovely woman resemble an angel in paradise. PARTIAL KNOWLEDGE.—Our happiness as think- ing beings must depend on our being content to accept only partial knowledge, even in those matters which chiefly concern us. If we insist upon perfect intelligibility and complete declaration on every moral subject, we shall instantly fall into misery or unbelief. Our whole happiness and power of energetio action depend upon our being able to breathe and live in the cloud, content to see it opening here and closing there, rejoicing to catch through its thinnest films glimpses of stable and substantial things. LoSING SLEEP.—Men who are the fastest asleep when they are asleep are the widest awake when they are awake. Great workers must be great resters. Every man who has clerks in his employ ought to know what their sleeping habits are. The young man 7 who sits up till two, three, or four o'clock in the morning, and must put in an appearance at the shop or office at nine or ten o'clock and work all the day, cannot repeat this process many days without a cer- tain shakiness coming into his system, which he will endeavour to steady by some delusive stimulu*. It is in this way that many a young man begins his course to ruin. He need not necessarily have been in bad company. He has lost his sleep, and losing aloop he is losing strength and grace. < THE ART OF WALKING.—If a man would appear like a gentleman he must walk, stand, and sit like one. In walking he should avoid everything that is unnatural or that smacks of self-consciousness. How often do you see men in the street whose every r movement tells us their minds are chiefly on them- selves. One throws out his chest, while another walks with an abnormal stoop, but both delight in a kind of rolling, swaggering gait, and an unnatural swing of the arms. Not only is a man's walk an index of his character and of the grade of his culture, but it is also an index of the frame of mind he is in. There is the thoughtful walk and the thoughtless .walk, the responsible walk, the idler's walk, the ingenuous <• walk, and the insidious walk, and so on. In a word, what there is in us we all carry in essentially the same way hence, the surest way to have the carriage of gentility is to have the gentility to carry. SLEEPING DRAUGHTS.—The dangerous and lament able habit of promiscuously taking sleeping draugh has unfortunately become very prevalent, ent»'' misery and ill-health to a terrible degree. persons addicted to this destructive prg erroneously think that it is better to take a sle draught than lie awake. A greater mistake /ill hardly exist. All opiates occasion more or leea mia- chief, and even the state of stupefaction they induce utterly fails to bring about that revitaliiation resulting from natural sleep. Chloral is popularly supposed to give a quiet night's rest, without any of the after effects (headache, &c.) produced by various pre- parations of morphia. Now, chloral is what is termed cumulative in its action, which implies that even the same dose persisted in for a certain length of time may cause death. Of all hypnotics chloral is by far the most deadly, and should never, under any circum- stances, be taken except under medical supervision. RELAXATION.—We all have twenty-four hours every day to invest, and if one hour withdrawn from busi- ness can be better invested, is it not a wise thing to do it? Relaxation, however, to be profitable, must be whole-hearted. It is not rest for the busi- ness man to bring his affairs and worries home with c him. It is not rest for the student to brood over theories and formulas when he walks, neither is it rest to take ones fear and anxieties to our friends table. If we have no heart to throw off these burdens, we should make the effort in spite of ourselves. We have been bound to our cares as the convict is to his ball and chain, and it is time to master circum. stances, instead of being their slaves. Mental slaves are more dependent upon the physical condition than we are inclined to think. Irritability means overstrained nerves; the blues and "black butter. flies" are other names for indi estion and a poor circulation. Recreation, it is to be remembered, is neither dissipation, nor yet absence of aotivity. Com- plete change of thought is relaxation; and Hood is quoted by a recent writer as saying that the Quaker r always enjoys life, for he makes a pleasure of his | business and a business of his pleasure. ART WORK FOR LADIES. —There is scarcely any limit to the work in the way of decoration that ladies impose upon themselves nowadays. That which they would have regarded as a laborious undertaking a few years ago they now consider as a merely pleasurable occupation. Not content with painting the walls of their rooms with subjects of their own design, with stencilling patterns on the cornices of the ceilings, with decorating the panels of doors and shutters,with executing stained-glass windows, with painting tapestry for portiferes and chair and sofa coverings, they now fill up any leisure time they have at their disposal by making some useful or ornamental article in brass. The work is quite easy, but a little patience is needed, as the metal does not yield all at onceito the blows of the hammer and tools, as may readily be understood. And it is certainly not suitable employment for any one who objects to a continuous tapping sound, for that is altogether unavoidable. Allowance being made for this drawback, repouss^- work is not otherwise unpleasant; indeed it would seem that many amateurs thoroughly enjoy it. In our opinion it is especially adapted for boys, and is an amusement that will keep their brains employed and their hands out of mischief on rainy days and long winter evenings.—CasselVt Family Magazine.

WAKING AT WILL. We have a very distinct recollection of many in- stances in which we have ourselves tried the experi- ment with success, and at one time, when it was necessary for a considerable period for us to wake on certain days of the week at a very early hour to take the first train to the place where our services were D then needed, we had an opportunity of studying the -—- circumstances under which this peculiar speoies of self- control is most easily exercised. During this period we found no difficulty in waking regularly within > about five minutes of the time necessary to enable u. to reach the train comfortably, although for a portion r of the time this involved getting up long before day- light; but we discovered also that, in order to wak* with precision at the right moment,and to rest quietly until it arrived, it was necessary to look at our waten just before going to sleep. If we neglected this pre- caution we were apt to sleep uneasily, waking first an hour or more before the proper time and allowing ourselves, in consequence, only short naps afterward until the minute arrived for getting up. Whatever part of our mind it might have been that took charge of waking us seemed to begin its count of the hours Hli from the time at which we composed ourselves to, • sleep, and if we did not inform ourselves of this, ov"; conscious reckoning was correspondingly uncertain, and the effort to wake vague but if we took a. clear note of the time in the evening, we could sleer, peace- fully through the whole of the allotted interval, sura of being aroused at or very near ita expiration. An. other condition of waking we found to be the occur- rence of some smair external t event, through w. v as it were, the internal effort could take effect i our senses. A very trifling circumstance-the ft of a leaf outside the window, the chirp of a birci, it any other of the unnumbered sounds of early mórn- lng-was sufficient, if it happened at the right time, to wake us by a sort of magnifying process which at that moment gave the power of startling us by a noise which would at other times be unnoticed; but with. out such sensible impression we think we should not .bavo waked. In fact, on one or two occasions we re- member to have been impressed with a dim conscious- ness of waiting for something to happen before wak- ing, and a moment later a trifling Bound would open our senses with a little shock. To the necessity of waiting for this impression, small as it might be, we were disposed to attribute the variation of a minute or two either way from the exact moment assigned for waking, which might otherwise be kept with exact punotuality.-Detroit Free Press. MENTAL CULTURE.—The test of good mental culture is a well-balanced mind that thinks not only strongly in one direction, but deeply and evenly in all; and the test of character is a well-balanced nature that not f only springs to do one or two great and congenial things, but also rejoices in the patient and conscien- > tious fulfilment of every duty and in loyal devotion to every principle.
