Theirs was not a benefit society in the literal sense of the wod, but a society formulated for the purpose of helping their brothers in distress. The soeicty had never refused to help a legitimate claim, and he hoped that would always be the case. (Applause.)

He sa.y: "Lc,tters arrive in the etters arrive in the Quay about twelve o'clock mid-day, and yet they are not delivered till between four and five o'clock in the afternoon, no matter how important the con.tents may be. In such a centre of industry as Shotton has become of late it is high time that the postal arrangements should be reorganised. The morning delivery is frequently thirty minutes' late, which :s occasioned through having to wait for the mails to be brought from Flint by tho cart There is a train which arrives from Flint at 5.30 p nl" and another from Chester about six p.m., EO why can't the letters come by train, and do away with the old jig jog of a mail cart? No doubt this old 'way of doing things suited the Quay a few years ago, but they must advance with the times. It is very annoying for business peopio to be defamed nearly an hour at home waiting to see if there are any letters." PRESENTATION. On Friday evening a pleasing little function took place at the Primitive Methodist Chapel. the occasion being the presenta- tion of a music cabinet to Mr. Arthur Walker, of Shotton, who has ably performed the duties of organist for the past two years, and who has had to relinquish that post to go to Chester College. —Mr. J. Henshaw (secretary of the church), in making the presentation on behalf of the members, friends, and the church, referred in high terms to the integrity and uprightness of the recipient, and said he was sure he was only echoing the sentiments of everyone when he wished Mr. Walker every good luck and prosperity in his new sphere of duty. (Applause). Although they all regretted Ins departure, they were extremely pleased with the musical abilities of his sister (Miss Emma Walker) in tilling the post vacated by her brother. (Applause). Mr. Walker fteelinglv thanked them for their kindness, and said he was sure be had done nothing to merit such a recognition.
