t FOOT ALL. Sfoke Swifts had a successful tonr in Wales, draw. ing with Chirk and beating Wrexham. The match at Chirk was not as good aa the one The match at Chirk was not as good as the one CbL" plliyed with Everton, but no doubt the hard ground and the Christmas festivities accounted for this. The result was a draw of two g )als each, but the Swifts maintain that they won by two goals to one, and that the equalising point was never scored, the ball not going through the postp. We are informed, however, by people who were standing right behind the goal that the ball was entirely over the line before the goalkeeper "scooped" it out. By the next day a rapid thaw had set in, and Wrexham Racecourse was in a very bad state. Rain also fell during the greater part of the game. Wrexham were well represented, having their usual team, with the exception that S. G. Gillam, who now keeps goal for London Welsh, took Jones's place in goal. It is stated that Jones has signed for Accrington. He played for that team against Battlefiald on Christ- mas Day. The game was fairly tven throughout, and Wrexham were unfortunate tn lose. At half-time the home team led by two goals, bo'h scored by J. Turner, to nil. In the second half a great change speedily came over the game, and about twenty minutes before time the Swifts were ahead, and before the finish they added a fourth point. Giilam gave a capital exhibition of goal-kteping, especially in the first half. He might possibly have stopped one of the goals scored against him in the second portiun of the game. The home backs were weak, and undoubtedly lost the match. Roberts put in some good work, but was not so safe as he usually i. The halves, too, hardly played up to their form. Amongst the forward*, Turner played a very good game, but his partner (Parry) was quite out of it on the heavy ground. B. Lewis worked very hard, and Wilding put in some Effective work in the centre, but he never plays well on a wet ground. Of the Swifts, the backs played a 6ne game. There was not much combination amongst the forward. but they played the right game during tbe second half. On Monday, Westminster Rovers travelled by special train to Crewe to play their Welsh Cup Tie. The train was late and as Mr J. Taylor. who was to have acted as referee, was not present, more time was lost in selecting a gentleman on the ground, so the match did not stait until three o'clock. A quarter of an hour before time." with the score standing one noal each, the referee blew his whistle. The Rovers at once left the ground, being under the impression that the game was over. On the referee discovering his mistake, he en- deavoured to re-start the game, but pointed out that it would be too dark to finish. The Rovers refused to come back agair, and Crewe accordingly ran the ball through the goal and clai ne 1 the match. The Alexandra Club was represented bv the Hornets, who were assisted by Osborne and Psssa'it of the first team. lhe Welsh Council meiti on Wednesday, when the diaw far the semi-finals will be made, and the sub- committee appointed to select the International teams. The protest by Rboe against Wrexham will bi con- sidered, and the Crewe and Rovers' match will aiso be considered. Rhos beat Rhostylien in "Soames's" Charity Cup, on Saturday. Pryce KyfBn practically won the match for the home team, and played a fine game all through. Rhostyllen have protested, on the ground that Rhos were a quarter of a hour late in commencing the game. We understand that the Wrexham club has cleared nearly £40 by their Christmas draw. To- day (Saturday) Wrexham play Gorton Villia, at Gorton. A special train leaves Wrexham (Central) Station at 12 20.

WESTMINSTER ROVERS v. DENBIGH. I On Saturday, these teams met in a friendly contest at Denbigh. The weather was exceedingly unfavor- able, a strung WIIllJ, accompanied by rain, prevailing during a great portion of the match. Denbigh won the tots, and selected to play uphill with the wind in their fsvor. The home team quickly pressed, a corner being li?aded out by CharUs Jones. Nottput in a good shot, which was smartly cleared by the visitors' custodian. A quick iu-h to the home quarters followed, Lloyd removing the play to mid-field with a long kick. After some dashing play in the centre, there was a combined rush for the visitors' goal, but Hobby failed to utillse an excellent chance. The Rovers made a dashing onslaught, but the Denbigh backs repelled repeated attempts. A free kick was granted the visitors near the home goal, but the custodian cleared and Osborne Jones travelled to tl!e visitors' territory, and delivered a well directed shot, which was kicked out by Charles Jones. Some even play followed in mid-field. Then Ned Jones secured, and a well-aimed shot was kept out by the visitors' goalkeeper. The Rovers broke away, and Powell made a splendid 'attempt to score but Lloyd was in the way. The play for many minutes was in mid-field, and neither team was able to make progress, both custodians being kept busy. At length a free kick for Denbigh near the centre of I the ground resulted in a corner for Denbigh, which was sent behind. From the goal kick, Osborne Jones secured, and some pretty passing ensued, but Hobby failed te return and nothing resulted. The visitors made strenuous efforts to score, but Pendlebury and Lloyd warded off the danger. A corner was gained by the Rovers, but no score accrued from it. At half time neither team had scored. The second half was pretty much the same as the firet, the combination of the visitors being much superior to that of their opponents. Both teams played pluckily, and had exceedingly hard lines, but nothing was scored, and an interesting game ended in a draw, no goals being scored. -=r-
I h "JLROSE v. BRYMBO INSTITUTE. On Boxing Day, the first and reserve teams of the Brymbo Institute Club travelled to Birkenhead to play friendly fixtures with the fiist and reserve teams of the Melrose Clubs. The teams, accompanied by about 30 supporters, left Brymbo with the nine o'clock train. In the morning the first teams d the clubs played. The game proved fast and exciting, and was witnessed hy a eoodly number of spectators. For the third time the Welshmen proved too stubborn for Melrose, the score at the finish being-Brymbo, 2; Melrose, I After the match a lunch was partaken of at the Holt Rock Temperance Hall. In the afternoon the reserve teams played. A very nice game was witnessed, the Melrose team managing to win by three to two. After the match the members again retired to the Temperance Hal', where a splendid dinner was laid out. A pleasant evening was spent, Mr Arthur Cope being in the chair. Mr John Parry, Brynteg, sung "The song that reached my heart," and Mr H. Bardsley gave There is a tavern in our town," which was loudly applauded. "The Tar's Farewell" was sung with feeling by Mr William Jones, Sonthses. Mr Eiwaid Brocklebank gave Good Old Jeff," and Mr John Parry, Brynteg, sang the solo of Hob a deri dando." After a violin solo from Mr H. Blackburn, Mr Samuel Williams, Brymbo. gave a short display of calisthenics, which highly pleased the company. The proceedings were brought to a close by the Brymbo team singing Huddersfield" to the words Dtiw mawr a ryffeddodau waitli."

The home team commenced with ten men, and were almost continuously on the defence, Everton leading by three goals to nil at half-time. Denton improved later on, but failed at goal, whilst Everton, always conspicuous for their good combination, added four more points, and won by seven goals to nil. STOKE SWIFTS V. CHIRK. Played at Chirk on Friday, before a good number of spectators. The ground was very hard. The visitors kicked off, and Mates checked their first attempt, the home forwards getting away in a nice run, but the effort failed. Hands against Chirk close in goal followed, Postle clearing, and then the game became very even, the ball being in mid-field. Povey conceded a corner, which was nicely placed, the ball being finally sent over the bar, and W. P. Jones checked an ugly rush which resulted from Postle missing his kick. The visitors returned to the attack, and scored their first goal. This reverse roused Chirk. Chambers scraped aside an ugly shot, but a minute later James beat him. The Welshmen were now pressing ia good earnest, Mates checking the only attempt at a break away. The speed and clean kicking of the Swifts' backs averted disaster, and Sandham and Forrester trans- ferred the attack to the other end. Povey left his charge, and one of the visitors had the g?al at his charge, but kicked the ball over the bar. The half- mercy, time whistle found Stoke on the aegressive, and the score Btanding at one goal each.—From the re-start, Stoke cot a corner, which came to nought. And the home forwards went straight into Chambers' goal, who saved in a manner that earned for him a round of applause. A fat pin and a quick grout.d shot were put in by Egan. A lucky save at either end followed in quick time. More spirited play wai ex- hibited, and a spell of uninteresting play was followed by Draycott and Arthern heading an attack of some du- ration on the Chirk goal, and after some little pretpure, Tunnicliffe notched a second point for them. Povey saved pp endidly soon afterwards. The home for- wards were soon swarming about the Stoke goal, and, despite the admirable defence, Chambers was beaten by a low shot, th9 Swifts claiming that the ball had not crossed the line. The referee, however, awarded a goal, prolonged cheering greeting his decision. The whistle announced the cessation of hostilities di- rectly afterwards, the score standing :-Stoke Swifts two goal", Chit k two. The following were the teams :— Chirk Povey. goal Postle and W. P. Jones, backs R. E. Jones, Mates and Davies, half-backs; James, G. Owen, Butler, W. Owen and Egan, forwards. Stoke Swifts Chambers, goal; Stoneley and Eccles, backs J. Tunnicliffe, Bateman and Smith, half- backs; Draycott, Arthern, W. Tunnictiffe.Sandham and Forrester, forwards. Referee, Mr J. Taylor, secretary Welsh Football Association. WBXXHAM V. STOKE SWIFTS. Played at Wrexham, on Saturday, before about 500 spectators. The vis'tors won the toss, and J. Turner started for Wrex- ham. After play in mldfield,;the Swifts got into the home quarters. B. Lewis and Davies got away. J. Tunnicliffe relieving. The ball was taken to the home goal and sent behind. A corner for the visitors came to nothing, and then the home forward s went away with nice passing. Stonely (topped them by kicking out. After a run hy Hodkinson, Gillam cleared well. A good kick by Eccles placed the ball well, but it was sent behind. Draycott had a chance of scoring, but shot wide. Directly afterwards, Arthern also kicked outside. Turner and Parry got away with nice pass- ing, and Stoneley came across and gave a corner. This was followed by another, which was well-placed, J. Turner missing a chance of scoring. A free-kick for Wrexham w,s followed by a similar advantage for the Swifts, and Gillam was cheered for a clever save. From a freekick well-placed by Lea, Parry had hard lines in not scoring. The ball then travelled to the other end, and was sent behind. Giilam saved from a corner, and also kept out a fast shot from Arthern. After a run hy Arthern and Hodkinson, a corner resulted, from which Glliam gave another c)rner, and this was sent behind. Parry raced awav, but Eccles was too good for him. A corner for the Swifca was cleared, and Parry and Turner were again prominent. From a pass by his partner, Turner put in a fine shot, which James missed, and the first goal was thus scored for Wrexham. Directly after the re-start, J. Turner shot a second goal for the home team. The visiting forwards put in some nice patting, but shct behind. Hodkinson kicked across the home goal, and Draycott misled a good chance. A. free kiolt for fnnl play by Eccles was returned by Stoneley, and Ellis made a mistake, but the ball was sent over the line. Gilam kept out a good shot from W. Tunnicliffe, and then R. Davies was given "off-side," when well placed. Gillam again saved well, and two corners were cleared. The game was uneventful for some time, and then James saved a shot from B. Lewis. Half-time arrived with the score :-Wrex- lIam, two goals Stoke Swiftp,, niL-On changing ends, the visitors went off with a rush, and from a scrimmage in goal. Hodkinson scored the first goal for them. A corner for the Swifts was well placed, and an easy chance of scoring was missed, W. Tunnicliffe kicking behind. A free kick against the visitors was well placed, but the whistle went for off-side." Lea kicked just over the bar, and Evan Williams shot into the goalkeeper'" hands. A free kick for Stoke near the home goal was kept out by Roberts, and Draycott returning placed outside. Wrexham I then made a strong attack, Wilding sending just } outside. Davies and Lewis made a good run and crossed. Wilding missed, but Turner secured and nearly scorecl. -t corner for Wrexham was well cleared, but Draycott rushed away. Roberts stopped him and returned the ball. Another I corner toe the home team was well placed. R. Davies screwed in, Jaraeslhit out and then the ball was sent behind. After Gillam had saved, the ball I was sent just outside the posts. Stoneley missed his kick. Davies got away and crossed to Wilding, who unfortunately missed the ball, and thus a good op. portunity was lost. Ellis gave a corner, and from thif, Arthern equalised the score with a long shot. After the home team bad made a futile attack, the visitors gained a corner, which was got away. Two corners for Wrexham came to nothing, and then the Swifts rushed down the field. Hodkinson sent the ball across and Draycott scored the third goal for the Swift. The visitors then had the best of the game. Roberts did some good work at back, and Gillam saved with threi forwards on top of him. Directly afterwards, with another rush, W. Tunnicliffe put through the fptsi th goal for the Swifts. The game continued fairly even from now until the finish, Wrexham making several attempts to score, but without avail. The final score was thus :-Stoke Swifts, four goals Wrexham, two. The following were the teams :-Stoke Swifts: Jamea. goal Stonely and Eccles, backs J. Tunnicliffe, Bateman, and Connor, half-backs W.

ENGLISH CUP. QUALIFYING ROUND. SIXTH DIVISION. FOURTH BOUND. CREWE ALEXANDRA V. NORTHWICH VICTORIA.— | This re-played English Cup tie tuok place at Crewe on Tuesday, before 5,000 spectators. Finnerhan started the game for the visitorp, but the home team pressed, and scored twice in ten minutes by the aid of Tuxford. Even play followed, Ncrthwich scoring twice by Pickering and Finnerhan, :and Crewe once again through Tuxford. At half-time Crewe led by three goals to two. Crewe gained the upper hand on resuming, and Payne (2) and Pearson scored for them. They thus won rather easily, with the final score, Crewe Alexandra, six goals; Northwich Victoria. two goals.
I THE LEAGUE. On Christmas Day the most important match was thac between Sunderland and Everton, at Anfield. The visitors had the best of the play throughout, and won by four goals to nil. McLean. of Everton, fell and broke his arm. Preston North End beat Stoke at Deepdale by three goals to two. North End led at one time by three goals, but Stoke came with a rush at the finish and put on two points. On Saturday, Sunderland followed up their win against Everton with a further success over Wolver- hampton Wanderers. The game was decided at Wolverhampton. Sunderland scored two goals to one before half-time. and their final score was three goals to one. Bolton Wanderers, who just retain their lead on the League list, sustained another defeat, when at Derby the home county beat them. The county registered two points before half-time, and although hard pressed in the second period, they finally won by three goals to two. Eight thousand people visited Petry Bar, Birmingham, when Aston Villa engaged Darwen. It was an uneven game. The Villa kicked two goals before half-time, and finally won by seven to love. Blackburn Rovers v. Accriiigton furnished a close contest at Blackburn. Throughout the game was full of excitement, and the ultimate result came oat thus—two goals all. Another good game was seen at West Bromwich, when the home eleven conteft,d Burnley. West Bromwich obtained the solitary point of the match, and won by a goal to none. On Monday, Everton travelled to Birmingham and beat Aston Villa, after an exciting game, by four goals to three. Wolverhampton Wanderers got the beat of West Bromwich Albion by two goals to one.
THE ALLIANCE. On Chri,tmas Day Walsall Town Swifts beat Bootle At Walsall by seven goals to nil. Ardwick got the best of Grimsby Town at Ardwick by three goals to nil. Crewe drew with Lincoln City at Lin- coln, two goals being scored by each team. The most attractive match on Saturday was that between Sheffield Wednesday and Ardwick at the Olive Ground, Sheffield. Here a very biu crowd assembled. The Wednesday obtained a goal in each period, and won by two to none. At Newton Heath the home club met Small Heath. From start to finish the game proved very even, and at the call of time the record stood at three goals all. Bootle received a visit from the Burton Swifts and the latter won by two goals to none. The Switts scored a point in each half. Crewe Alexandra and Grimsby played a drawn match of one goal all.

STARVATION OF CATTLE IS CHESHIUE -At Eddisbury Petty Sessions on Monday Llewelyn Woods, farmer, of Calveley, was summoned for cruelty to cows. From complaints received Inspector Dowty, of the R.S.P.C.A., visited the defendant's farm at Wardle, near Calveley, on the 17th inst., when he found 42 head of cattle starving in a field. Many of them were in a weak, emaciated condition, their bones pr< truding prominently through the flesh, and they oould easily be pushed over with the hand. There was little or no grass in the field, and the defendant's explanation was that the farm, which was only capable of support. ing 29 head of cattle, was overstocked, with the result that the cows had to be fed entirely on hay three times a day. It was the worst dairy of cows the officer had ever seen. They could hardly walk about, while the hay was overrun by fowls, and the quantity given at each feeding could be picked up under one arm. The corroborative evidence of the police went to show that complaints had been received from residents in the neighbourhood to the effect that the stock was being starved. Though the prosecution might have brought summones against the defendant in the case of each individual cow, and though there was no rehuttine evidence, the magistrates imposed a fine of only 29s and costs.

The articles are interesting and the illustrations are well executed. THE SILVER LINK (Sunday School Union, 56, Old Bailey, London).—This is a new penny monthly magazine for home and school. It is well illustrated, and the new venture promises well. NEW AND OLD.-(Griffith Farran and Co., Limited, Newbery House, Charing Cross-road, London). 'lhi:3 magazine, which has for its motto "Pro Deo et Ecclesia," contains much matter of interest. It is, of course, a Church publication. GREAT THOUGHTS. (A. W. Hall, 2, Racquet Court, Fleet-street, E.C.) The Christmas number of this publication is before us, and it commands praise. Next month a new volume is to be commenced, which will contain many attractions. Boys' OWN PAFEB.—In the Boys' Owen Paper (56, Paternoster Row, London) for January, the four serial stories are continued, and there are several instructive articles. There is a large coloured frontispiece entitled "The Indian Native Army." THE HEBETIC (Charlton Tucker, 26. Beauchamp Avenue, Leamington).—This is a quarterly jour nal which is "opposed to Jesuistry and Ritualistic Mum- mery." The price is sixpence. Its language, even when it is impossible to approve of its tone, ia ultra- protestant and very vigorous. THE QUIVEB.—(Cussell and Co., London). This magazine renews it-i youth like the eagle, and keeps enlarging the circle of its readers. It is in all respects carefully edited, and the illustrations are of the best. The frontispiece is "Singing the Psaltns of David," which is a reproduction of Miss Emma Squire's Academy picture. CASSELL'S FAMILY MAGAZINE.—(Cassell and Co., London). The serial stories, which began to run last month, continue with increasing iuterest. Ladies, who are in search of some new fancy work, ought to read the article on Mount Mellick Embroidery, which is copiously illustrated. The new prize competitions, which are numerous and va!uable, are advertised this month. SUNDAY AT HOME.-(Religious Tract Society, 56, Paternoster Ruw, London.) Among a very varied number of articles, those dealing with religious life and thought in Belgium are well worth careful atten- tion. The fine picture of Judas" by Frank W. W. Topham, shown in the Academy last year, is admir- ably reproduced, We commend the number to our readers. YOUNG ENGLAND.-The January number of Young England (Sunday School Union, 55, 56. and 60. 1 Old Bailey, London) commences a new volume. There I are three serials and four complete stories, as well as I a quantity of other readable .That, weli- a q? uantity of other readable mastfiere, nty, begins a t._ ii i ? j? ?-?t?! <jr. A. tale entitled "In the Grip of the Press Gang." There is a very good aoloured frontispiece. THE GIRLS' OWN PAFEB.—(Leisure Hour Office, 56, Paternoster Row, E.C.) This Paper is, as usual, very good. We would recommend our readers who have soprano or tenor voice3 to learn the song Love and Laughter," for the music, which is by Dr. C. Hubert H. Parry, is characteristic of one of England's most scholarly musicians. Girls with a taste for art ought to read the short article which teaches them Cloisonn £ painting. LITTLE FOLKS.-(Cassell and Co., London). A new volume is commenced with this number, and one of the new serials, "The Next-Door House," is by Mrs Molesworth, whose storie3 for children are always so very charming.

It has some good illustrations by Alice Havers. SUNDAY MAGAZINE.—(Isbister and Co., London.) The first number of the new volume begins well. The frontispiece is Edwin Long's fine painting Diana or Christ 1" It is only fairly well done. Miss Hesha Stretton and 14 Carmen Sylva" commence their serials, which eeem likely to do well. Among the nrticles which deserve praise are The Jewish Colony in London by Mrs Butler, and Our Children's Shelter by the Baroness Burdett-Coutte. GOOD WOBDS.—(Isbister and Co., London.) This number begins a new volume, and to name all the good things in it would be to reproduce the enn'ente. Suffice it to say therefore that William Black com- mences a new story The Magic Ink," and Helen Shipton one entitled "Atttaton Crucis." The Dean of Gloucester writes on Tewkeabury Abbey," and the paper on Highland Smugglers" are only part of a very readable magazine. THE LEISURE HOUR (56. Paternoater Row, London) is very readable. W. Flinders Petrio contributes another paper on the Romance of Ancient Litera- ture." Under the title of A Floating Republic," the story of the buccaneers is told. It is short, but is one of the most interesting and instructive papers we have read. The Gie it Andes of the Equator," with map and illuatrations by Edward Whyinp.r. is very readable, as is also A Skating Trip to Holland," by Charles Wbymper. MACMILLAN'S MAGAZINE.—(Macmillan and London.) The many readers of this excellent maga- zine will be pleased to find that this month a new story by F. Marion Crawford, entitled "Don Ortsinr' is begun.

We commend the study of "Andrew Marvel," wiioh is given. The other articles are readable, but it is not necessary to refer to them further. THE EXPOSITORY TIMES (T. and T. Clark, 38, George-street, Elinbugh) —This paper, which has been much enlarged, cjrtainiy (iii.Iit to be in the hands of all religious teachers. It has a wonderful amount of information on Biblical matters, and the writers are the best who can be got. Bishop Ellicott commences an important series of pAper.. udon 11 Tho teaching of our Lerd as to the authority of the Old Testamf nt." Modern criticism and the most recent discoveries are amply treated, so that taken on the whole this paper is most valuable. The price-is 6::1 monthly. THE ENGLISH ILLUSTRATED MAGAZINE (Macmillan and Co., London.)—This magazine comes with a new cover, and the change brightens it up wonderfully. The frontispiece is a fine engraving of Holbein's famous portrait of "George Giz.'H, merchant of the Steelyard in London." The promise of Mr Irven to produce Henry VIII. outfit to make Mr Hawkin's article entitled Henry VIII. on the Stage the better read. It is copiously illustrated. Joseph Halton give* an account of Cope's tobacco factory in Liverpoo!, and the cu s are good. Space forbids us saying more than to heartily commend this cheapest and best of its claafr. GB^EN'S SHOBT HISTORY.—The fourth part of the admirable edition of Green's Short History of the Eng- lish People, which Macmillan and Co. are issuing, has just been published. It carries the story up to the Acceinion of Stephen. Amongst the interesting I engravings are those from a Calendar, MS. Cott. Jul. A. vi., illustrating the months. In April "Feasting," is represented in June, Cutting Wood and in November, A group round a fire," while December is devoted to "Threshing and winnowing." The plan of Early London is inoo, interesting, and amongst the other illustrations we may mention "Chapel in the Tower of London," and Abbot's Bridge, S. Edmundebury," THE NEWBERY HOUgE MAOAZI.- E -G. ifRt; Farran and Co., Limited, Newbery House, London). The Rev. F. L. H. Millard deals with "The Universities and Elementary Education," and condemns the system in force in the elementary schools, and suggests that the universities might help to solve the difficulty by taking an active share in the work. The Rev. Dr. Kales presents a schema for cleigy pensions, which deserves careful consideration. Mrs Walford c,)mmences a very interesting article on Sydney Smith. Not only was Sydney Smith witty he was wise-e.g., To accustom man to great risks, you must expose them as boys to lesser riks. If you attempt to avoid all risks, you do an injury infinitely greater than any you shun." Soini fragments of Coleridge and Lamh, hitherto unpublished, are given by W. T. Brooke, and are of much interest. THE WELSH REvijtw.rhe January number of this publication shows a mat ked improvement when compared with its two predecessois, interesting as they were, an I the promise of better things which they contained has been iu: filled. Ihe editor and his staff seem setti ng down to work, and the seaminess which was apparent in the two first Reviews has dis- appeared so completely, that were it not for the serial number, the reader could easily imagine he was per- using an old and well-established u agazine. Last month Mr Stead bad a savage article upon Sir Charles Dilke, which was addressed to the electors of the Forest of Dean. It was characteristic of the writer, whose strong imagination very often sees things as he thinks they are, and not as they really exist. Hia motive is no doubt excellent, but even Mr Stead is liable to err, and anyone who read a Mr Harold Frederic's reply in the current number will find much important information, which will help him to form a just opinion of Sir Charles' position and Mr Stead's policy. We confeiis we have never read a more com- plete or more effective reply to any charge than the one Mr Frederic makes to Mr Stead's egotistical rodomontade. Mr Stead is tearijg his passion to tatters, and is really doing more harm than good. A large number of people think Sir Charles Dilke has been on the rack long enough, and as Mr Stead is no believer in eternal punishment, be ought to practice what he preachy. But to turn to more interesting matter. We note that the next article is by Mr Alfred ThLma9, M.P., who, under the title of "A Welah Programme," sketches the main provisions of his Wdbh National Institutions Bill. This measure p: ope s a a Secretary of State for Walts, who will have very large powers. He will appoint magistrates, and can order proceedings in the Courts of Justicei4 to be wholly or partially conducted in Welsh when expedient, It is also proposed to have a Welsh Education Department, and the Secretary of State has power to permit the formation of a National Council, formed of delegates from the counties and county-boroughs in Wales. Mr Thomas is of opinion that his Bill will give Wales all the advantages of Home Rule. It ia pleasing to hear that the measure has been generally approved, but we should like to know what is to be done with regard to private legislation ? The short story A Modern Adam and Eve," by Reefe Bedlormie, is very sad. The danger of uging metaphors is shown by this writer. He refer a to the eiitrrnee of "The black serpent of dis- content." This serpent creeps in, by the way, un- perceived, "because he had sandalled his feet and gloved his iron wrists." Oh, the dainty figure A Mr Charles Henry Glascodine wastes eight pages of the Review in attempting to reply to the Rev. Eivet l.ewis' article on "The redemption of the Welsh liurch" which appeared in the fiisfc I number. It is very very poor, and one longs for a few vigorous pages from the Dean of St. Asaph. We suggest to the Editor that he iiiiglit tackle the Dean until he gets an article. The Dean is nevel dull. The author of "The views of the Member for Treorky contributes some amusing (we hope we are really right this time) pages which more than atone for his rather solemn work in last months budget We do not, Qftr the improvement manifested, con- sider The Viws" illustrate any uarticular condition of our political life, and the danger of a charge of ,I-i h 'Ei-Ilrold partizanship which jvr^iy^^°enou8^yf'raisetl IGyTifoBf way 'Of:! very serIOusly ralse(J. uj whose sense of humor is not quite as keen as that of the Member. Sir Gratton Esmonde, Bart, M.P., writes defending the interference of the Priest in politics in Ireland. It is almost needless to defend & practice so largely experienced at home. Noncon- formist ministers and clergymen take part, and ought to take part iu politics here. We say ought to," for that religion must be a poor thing which does not take politics into account. The part we do not like to see ministers duing is attacking each other's denominations. It always seems eo shoppy." Prof. Walter Evsns, M.A., pleads for theology to have a place in the Welsh University which is to be. How strange to find anyone in a Welsh periodical pleading for theology One may wtll ask Iii visions about?" The story, "A Sen ence of Death." by H. ChartreB is worth reading. The Welsh Notes are good, and the two portraits—the Recorders of Cardiff and Swansea—are well reproduced. We cannot say as much of the portrait of the Georgia Magnet in the dramatic artice by Liknon. We again commend the Review, which promises tj till must efficiently a want which hs been felt by educated and unprejudiced W .1,hmel1 for years. The price is 6J, and the publishers are Messrs Kegan Paul, Trench, Tiiibner and Co, Limited. Paternoster House, Charing Cioas Road, W.C.
A Clothes-horse and a Cab horse are just as unlike one another as SUNLIGHT SOAP is unlike ordinary laundry soap. Sunlight Soap will save half the labour, and in fact does the most of the work. Soiled garments made as white as snow by using SUNLIGHT SOAP. Why do not the soap manufacturers who make imitations of the Sunlight Soap imitate other Soaps? Because Sunlight Soap is worth copying, the others are not. Gold is continually counterfeited brass and tin never. Why do none of these imitations obtain any sale on their own merits ? Because they are simply the old adulterated impure soaps trying to obtain a sale by imitating the SUNLIGHT SOAP, which they resemble about as much as a farthing candle does the glorious orb of day. wny do these adulterated soaps, though alleged to be cheapest, prove the dearest in the end ? Because, though they cost little in money, they will cost you much in loss of health and ruined clothes. Why are people deceived into buying them? Because they do not look to see that the registered title "Sunlight" Soap is on the wrapper and the tablets.
I WELSH WATER FOR WALES." I A NEW NATIONAL C&Y. I The Rev. Owen A. Nares, vicar of Kerry, Mont., having recently called attention to the various schemes, either contemplated or in progress, for supplying English centres of population with water from We;sh rivers, and having urged Welshmen of all politics to combine in the protection of Welsh water for Wales," has received several letters in reference thereto from Welsh M.P.'s. The Hon. G. T. Kenyon, M.P., writes:—I am obliged by your letter and enclosure, and having regard to the populous districts in North and South Wales, I cannot thifik ttie warning comes too soon. Members of Parliament should carefully watch, and, if necessary, take action on any eciiemes having for their object the diversion of water from the Principality. Mr Stuart Rendel, M.P., writes I do not quite understand what is meant by protecting Welsh water for Welsh consumption. The Severn and the Wye carry the bulk of the Welsh water into England, and is this unpatriofic cr unjust ? Welsh waters artificially supply Liverpool, but not, I believe, at any expense or detriment to Wales. 0:1 the contrary, the lake at Llanwyddyn, made at the cost of Liverpool, is, or should be, of value to Wales. It should prevent the injurious flooding of the Yerniew and Severn, and render their flow somewhat more uniform. What the water scheme of the Birmingham Corporation may be I do not know. I am bura there is no prima jacte grouna for supposing that if it interferes with Welsh waters to Welsh disadvantage, or without full compen- sation to Wales, it will obtain Parliamentary sanction. If the cry of Wales for the Welsh" can be justly discredited, it will be by interpreting it as meaning such follies as WeLh water for Wales alone." The Ccunty Councils are. of cuurse, quite right in claiming that Wales shall not part with its water to its own lobs, but to start at the present juncture, a Welsh national cry upon the catchword of Welsh water for Welsh use only," would be to bring Welsh nationality into ridicule. I cannot but suspect that some persons may favor such a cry as a cheap and safe diversion. Welsh nationality is concerned wrth far graver and more urgent issues, and I would venture to deprecate all dissipation or diversion of its aims or tffrts.
Mazawattee HIGH-CLASS TEA. Nothing of late years seems to have escaped the craze for cheapness, at the sacrifice of Real Quality.
