NOTICE.—This column is devoted to better thoughts for quiet moments. Can the wiles of Art, the grasp of Power, Snatch the rich relics of a well-spent hour ? These, when the trembling spirit wings her flight, Pour round her path a stream of living light. ROGERS.
This mournful truth is everywhere confess'd, Slow rises worth by poverty depress'd.
Vision of Mind. As sweeps the bark before the breeze, While waters coldly close around, Till of her pathway through the seas, The track no more is found Thus, passing down Oblivion's tide, The beauteous visions of the mind, Fleet as this ocean pageant, glide, And leave no trace behind. JOHK MALCOLM. o
Cheerfulness. Give us, 0 give us, the man who sings at his work! Be his occupation what it may, he is equal to any cf those who follow the same pursuit in silent sullenness. He will do more in the same time-he will do it better—he will persevere longer. One is scarcely sensible of fatigue whilst lie marches to music. The very stars are said to make harmony as they revolve in their spheres. Wondrous is the strength of cheerfulness, altogether past calculation its powers of endurance. Efforts, to be permanently useful, must be uniformly joyous—a spirit all sunshine, graceful from very gladness, beautiful because bright. CARLYLE, No
The Stars. The history of old nations and peoples come down to us in ruined temples, in parchments venerable from age, in fading portraits, in models of antiquated war-ships, to be smiled at in modern Museums. The generations of men are but the Pours of a season—a little longer than a single Year. The memory of them is trampled in by the Million feet of their successors, themselves in turn £ be trampled in as swiftly, and cared for no more. ^ut the stars which we see are the stars which hey saw. Time has not dimmed their brilliance, t age made them loiter on their course. Time °r tbem is not. They are themselves the measured 41111 creators of time. Have they, too, their PrJOinted end? They shalt perish, but Thou shalt "lidure. They all shall wax old, as doth a garment. a vesture shalt Thou change them, and they uall be changed. But Thou art the same, and hy years shall not fail.

If it bore the auip of virtue, it is blessing man, and owned by fearen if its character was evil, vain the remorse 'at would revoke it, vain the gnawing anxiety that °uld compute its mischief. Its immediate and ° Us visible effect may soon be spent; its remote who shall calculate The oak which waves 11 our forest to-day, owns its form and species to he acorn which dropped from its remote ancestor Uder whose shade the Druids worshipped.

Folly of War. '"Whene'er contending princes fight, bor private pique or public right, Armies are raised, the fleets are manned, They combat both by sea and land. When, after many battles past, ftoth, tired with blows, make peace at last, What is it, after all, the people get? j Why, taxes, widows, wooden legs and debt." MOORE'S ALMANAC FOR 1829. ♦ Oh, world! -1 men what are ye, and our best designs, ^hat we must work by crime to punish crime -^nd slay, as if death had but this one gate, •> hen afewyears would makethe sword superfluous! BYRON. ♦ «■ Jlut War's a game which, were their subjects wise, Kings would not play at. Nations would do well J 0 extort their truncheons from the puny hands Of heroes, whose infirm and baby minds .Are gratified with mischief; and who spoil, Because men suffer it, their toy the world. COWPER. *■ Were half the power that fills the world with terror, Were half the wealth bestow'd on camps and Courts, Given to redeem the human minll from error, There were no need of arsenals nor forts. The warrior's name would be a name abhorr'd, And every naiion that should lift again It\ hand against a brother, on i's forehead Should wear for evermore the enrse of Cain. LONGFELLOW.
CHURCH NEWS. The Rev. T. H. Yaughan, curate of Rhyl, has been appointed vicar of Llwydiarth. Mr. Vaughan who is a graduate of Lampeter, was ordained to the curacy of Colwvn in 1887, and has been curate of Rhyl since 1892. The financial meeting of the South Wales District of the Wesleyan Methodist connexion was held last week at Pembrey under the presidency of the Rev. Rice Owen, Ferndale. The advisability of keeping the Llandrindod cause in connexion with the district was discussed, and it is intended to appoint a lay agent there soon, on the resignation of Mr. Simpson. The Chairman exhorted the district to make an effort to clear off the sum now remaining on the Eglwysbach Memorial Chapel at Pontypridd. The Rev. G. O. Roberts appealed to the ministers and laymen to give the question of temperance more attention in the future. The Minutes of the Wesleyan Methodist Con- ference, which has just been issued, is the bulkiest yet printed-a sign of progress. Among its many interesting tables is the statistical return made up of all the sections of Methodism in the world. 'The total number of ministers is given at 43,400 The total number of ministers is given at 43,400 of lay preachers, 101,643; church members and probationers, exclusive of members of junior classes, 7,100,601; Sunday schools, 77,627; officers and teachers, 788,060; scholars, 6,185,790; churches and mission rooms, 76,821. In such tabular views of strength it is generally assumed that members are in iproportion to adherents one to four that gives a total of thirty millions of Methodists. Extensive preparations are being made for an active propaganda on behalf of the Congregational Twentieth Century Fund in the coming autumn. Every county will be visited in addition to the holding of a large number of district meetings, so that it may be fairly estimated that all the churches in the country will be reached through their representatives. I see the demonstration for Man- chester and district, to be held in the Central Hall, is put down for November 8, and the deputation will include the Rev. Dr. Guinness Rogers and the Rev. J. H. Jowett—worthy representatives of the older and younger sections of the denominations. Among the ministers who have placed their services at the disposal of the Council are Dr. "Barrett, the Revs. Silvester Home, T. Hooper, T. Eynon Davies, D. S. Houghton, and D. L. Ritchie, whose name is freely mentioned in connection with an important vacant pastorate.
LONDON. At the Borough Welsh Chapel, Southwark, a smart and popular wedding was witnessed on Thursday, September 14th. the contracting parties being Mr. John Hughes, draper, Hoxton,, (a native of Llanfairclydogau) and Miss Mary Evans, of London Road, Bermondsey. The Rev. D. C. Jones the minister conducted the ceremony in the presence of the registrar, and a large number of friends gathered at the chapel to testify their good wishes on the happy occasion. The bride who was richly dressed in grey silk was given away by her uncle Mr. T. Evans, London Road, and had as bridesmaids Miss S. J. Evans, sister, and Miss M. J. Hughes sister of the bridegoom, both of whom were tastefully dressed for the event. Mr. J. M Jones, Newcomen-strcet, acted as best man, and. among those present were Mr. and Mrs. R. Hughes, Hoxton; Mr. E. and Miss S. Richards, Llanfair; Mn and Mrs J. B. Evans, Islington; Mrs. Jones, Newcomen Street; Mr. W. Hughes, Poplar Miss A. J. Edwards and others. After the service at the chapel the party and guests drove to the Bridge House Hotel, London Bridge, where the wedding breakfast had been prepared. After a sumptuous repast the health of the bride and bridegroom was toasted by the Revs. D. C. Jones and T. J. Evans, and hearty good wishes expressed on the union by Messrs. Evan Richards, J. B. Evans, T. Evans, and Miss Richards. Mr. Hug-hes briefly responded and thanked all for their kind expressions to them on their new departure. The young couple left early for South Wales where their honeymoon will be spent. A large number of presents have been received by both parties, which testify to their "popularity among a wide circle of friends in London and the country.
Benjamin Lewis, a Merthyr hairdresser, was fined five shillings on Thursday for shaving his customers on Sunday.

An Autumn Day. Each land, each theme, each countenance, Has special beauty all its own; A pigmy he. whose narrow glance I Can only scan a single zone What tho' the blush of Spring has died, And Summer sunshine is no more- See, Autumn, in an artless pride, Stands smiling at her mother's door. The acorn hangs upon the tree, The berries ripen black and red, And true-heart robin sings with glee Mid russet branches overhead. BURTON BETHAM.
Suspense. I think if ete-,nity.,hel(i torment, its form would not be fiery rack, nor its nature despair. I think that on a certain day amongst those days which never dawned and will not set, an angel entered Hades—stood, shone, smiled, delivered a prophecy of conditional pardon, kindled a doubtful hope of bliss to come, not now, but at a day and hour un- looked for, revealed in his own glory and grandeur the height and compass of his promise: spoke thus -then, towering, became a star, and vanished into his own heaven. His legacy was suspense-a worse boon than despair. z, CHARLOTTE BRONTE.
Just Employment of Life. Life appears to me to be too short to be spent in nursing animosity, or in registering wrongs. We are, and must be one and all, burdened with faults in this world but the time will soon come when, I trust, we shall put them off in putting off our corruptible bodies; when debasement and sin will fall from us with this cumbrous frame of flesh and only the spark will remain-the impalpable principle of life, pure as when it left the Creator to inspire the creature: whence it came it will re- turn, perhaps to pass through gradations of glory --from the pale human soul to brighten to the seraph. It is the creed in which I delight, to which I cling. If makes eternally a rest, a Eighty home, not a terror and an abyss. Besides, Mth this creed, revenge never worries my heart, 'legradation never too deeply disgusts me, injustice never crushes me too low. I live in calm, looking tr) the end." CHARLOTTE BRONTE. 1
MERIONETH AGRICUL- TURAL SOCIETY. A SUCCESSFUL SHOW AT DOLGELLEY. The Merionethshire Agricultural Society held their Thirty-second Annual Show at Dolgelley, on Thursday. Favoured by splendid weather, the show was a magnificent success'; indeed, many were of opinion that it was the best show ever held in the County. The number of entries was larger than in any previous year, and the com- petition in all departments was so keen that the judges experienced the greatest difficulty in some cases in arriving at. their decisions. Ihj President for the year is Mr. Jtomer Williams, J.P., Dolmelyn- llyn; the Vice-president, Mr. Henry Evans, Escuan Hall; the Treasurer, Mr. T. P.

Clibran & Son, of the Oldfield Nurseries, Altrincham (whose local representative is Mr. W. Lewis, Arthog), exhibited a fine collection of apples of different varieties, suitable for growing in the district, for which they were accorded a special award of merit. THE LUNCHEON. The luncheon was served in a large marquee on the ground. Mr. Romer Williams (president) presided. In giving the loyal toast, Mr. Williams remarked that Her Majesty had reigned longer than any other sovereign, and every year of her reign tended to preserve monarchy and to strengthen the Constitution. As a Queen they honoured her, as an agriculturist they respected her, and as a woman they loved her.—The toast having been loyally drank, the President gave The Merionethshire Agricultural Society." When entering the building, he said, a gentleman in bubolic attire addressed a few words in Welsh to him. He was not conversant with the language, and the few words he did know were of a doubtful character (laughter)—generally used in the heat of the moment or when in anger (renewed laughter). However, luckily he had his wife with him, who was a native of the country (hear, hear). On asking her what his friend said she told him that it was this: For goodness sake, don't let's have any long speeches (laughter). Now he was in the habit of attending a good many agricultural shows, and he bad generally noticed that the president usually entered on long dissertations as to the benefit of farming, and how it was sure to pay if properly managed, and how the next season was sure to be better than the last (laughter). He also endeavoured to educate the farmer on matters which the farmer knew more about than he himself (hear, hear. and laughter). The words of his friends had been a bitter disappoint- ment to him, for he had carefully prepared statistics beginning with the amount of rainfall, results of the harvest, breeding and raising of stock, questions of exportation and importation, machinery, from elevators to cream separators, and a short treatise about sheep shearing and slate- splitting. However, bearing in mind the warning of his friend, he had to deny himself the pleasure of giving them his ideas on those subjects. Before asking them to drink prosperity to the show, however, he would remind them that in this year's show there were more entries than in any previous show, and the greater part of its success was due to the energy and able management of the secretary Mr. Roberts (applause). The High Sheriff gave The Judges." He remarked that he was sure this was a toast which they would all drink with great warmth. The judges had a very difficult task to perform. Their duties were thankless, because it was impossible to satisfy everybody, and he was told that on this particular occasion the judges had had a very stiff job, which, of course, was accounted for by the large number of excellent exhibits which they had had to select from. He was told especially that the sheep were extremely difficult to judge this year. Mr. Dutton, whose name was coupled with the toast, in responding, said the judges were there to do justice between man and man, and they had no desire to favour any one. He would like to make one suggestion, that a ring should be made for the horses to be paraded in when the judging was going on. 11 Mr. Owen S. Wynne submitted the health of the President, which was heartily drank. The President, in responding, remarked that letter- writing was more in his line than writing speeches, and so he would conclude thus:—" Believe me to be, ladies and gentlemen, your most obedient and devoted servant, Romer Williams" (laughter and cheers).
