LLANMERI WiG. RE-OPENING OF THE PARISH CHURCH, The Lord Bishop of St. Asapb re-opened this church for Divine service on Sunday, July 17th, after its, having been closed for eight months. His Lordship preached at the eleven o'clock service from the test, John xiv., 6, "I am the way, the truth, and the life," impressively showing how daily life and datjr should mark Christian faith. The other service* of the day were celebration of the holy commncion 8-30 a.m., at which the rector (Rev R. E. Gibbiugs, D.D.) was the celebrant; an afternoon service, at which the rector was the preacher, and one in the evening at 6.30, when Rev T. M. Dorsett Owen, vicar of Holy Trinity, Burnley, preached from ..he text, Habakkuk n., 11. Crowded congregations at each service attested the interest felt by the neigh- bourhood in the event. This good work now happily accomplished bad been in contemplation during the incumbency of the iate Rev E. M. Montford, and plan were prepared by Mr Aston Webb, one of the most successful architects of the day. These plans havinff been in abeyance by reason of the death of the BeT. E. M.

Davies, Fronfraith Mill, J. Davies (Tne Bryn), and W. Rogers, undertook the haulage of the materials, thereby materially: reducing the cost of the estimate.
