Archdeacon Smart, and the Rev. E. T. Davies, B.A., of Liverpool. COLLIERS' WAGES.—An important concession has this week been granted by the Brymbo Company to the workmen in the employ of the company. Instead of the usual subsists or "sists" commonly used there will be fortnightly pays," which in these depressed times and low wages will be a consider- able advantage to the emploJ <3 and all connected with the district. It may be well to state that there are signs of an improved state of trade in the district which argurs well for the ensuing winter. SuNDAY SCHOOL UNION.—The quarterly meeting of the Sunday School Union in connection with the Welsh Independents at Bryn Zion and Brynteg. was held in Bethesda Chapel, Brynteg, on Sunday afternoon, when there was a large attendance from both schools. The examiners were Mr. William Jones. Railway Gates, Brymbo, Mr. W. Williams and Mr. John Phennah, Brynteg, who each ex- pressed themselves highly pleased with the results of die examination and the progress the schools are making, a fact gratifying to the respected pastor, Rev. John Roberts, Bryn Zion.

Edwards, The Lodge (in Welsh), ML-. T. H. Dodleston, and Mr. John Walker, Chester. There were three services on Sunday and two on Monday, which were all well attended and most impressively rendered, the discourses being of an earnest and practical character. The chapel choir, under the leadership of Mr. G. Pugh, sung several pieces in a satisfactory manner. The collections, though not large, were very encouraging and were in aid of the trust fund. LITERARY MEETING.—A literiry meeting of an interesting character, in connection with the Sun- day school at Baptist Chapel, Lodge, was held in the chapel on Monday last, under the presidency of Mr. Henry Brain, when the children sang a number of pieces, under the leadership of Mr. Price Jones, Brymbo, in a very pleasing manner. Several dia- logues and recitations of an instructive character were given by the children in a very agreeable manner, highly complimentary to Mr. John Jones, Gas Works, Broughton, the superintendent of the school. The attendance was not large, but the meeting was thoroughly enjoyed by all. A series of meetings is contemplated during the winter months. THEATRICAL PERFORMANCES.—During the last month, Mr. Ebley's travelling theatre of varieties, in the Moss Brake, has been extensively patronised by the play-goers of the district. On Friday, as a fitting termination of the visit to the district, a performance of East Lynne," took place, and the engagement of Mrs. Marie Hannan, of Wrex- ham, in her impersonation of Lady Isabel Carlyle, and Mr. Robert Anderson, the well-known comia vocalist, and Miss Marie Hannan, Wrexham. The characters throughout were well sustained, and did credit to each for their acting and the way it was put on the stage. The performance concluded with the farce, "Turn him out," which was undoubtedly a success. There was a fair attendance, and the performance was of an exciting and imaginative character, and duly applauded.
