CONN AH S QUAY & SHOTTON. A PLAGUE OF DOGS.—A Shotton resident Writer complaining of the intolerable nuisance 0446ed by the dogs in the district. He says ^■ariy every person owns a dog, and at night it Jø almost a. physical impossibility to get a wink of sleep owing to the howling and barking of them cms. In the daytime they run wild in Mig of a doren or moro, and it is not infre- lloent to hear of persons being bitten by them. ^attfens are rooted up wholesale, and the destruction caused is very annoying. It ie fre- quetnly aeked when are the Flintshire County Council going to enforce the collar or muzzling order, which ie in force in nearly every other town. The aggrieved residents have practically tIQ remedy when they get a bite, as they cannot 11& a rule find out who owns the dog. Perhaps the proper authorities will kindly see into this lnto!erable nuisance. THE CYCLE CARNIVAL.—"A Reader" Writes:—Much speculation is going on in ConnaJi's Quay and Shotton at the present time a* to whether there is going to be a cycle carnival this year in aid of the Shotton and Connah's Quay Sick Nursing Associations. It will be remembered that the Carnival Committee have been the means of considerably enhancmg the fuj.dii of tlui association for the past, s:x years and without these functions one fails to eoc where sufficient support will come from to "P the associations going. This time last year a Coiyi in itt-c-e was formed and everything was forking smoothly, but up to now nothing has hoeu done. No doubt the ill-advised utterances Of some of the members of the association at their annual meeting have much to do with it. It 1EI to be hoped that those responsible for the ^irupiion will try and rectify their error, and tlLai a carnival will yet be held and that all differences will be forgotten.

Committee b- we understand, completed his assessment Of the urban district of Connah's Quay, and ^any of his assessments, it is rumoured, are most '^ittJaaonable. For instance, houses which aro "^seesed at J312 in Connah'cs Quay arc only aa9ewsed at JS4 at Nori,hop Hall. It is an indis- putable fad that the property of Shotton and .h Quay is a1 higher than in any tart of the county. Why this should be many 41X5 at a loss to understand.
