Once upon a midnight dreary, ill in bed, quite weak and weary, With sleeplessness, lone spirits, and indigestion sore While I strove in vain at napping, suddenly there came a tapping As of someone gently iapping-rapping at my chamber door I "It's Doctor Draughts," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door." 'Twas the doctor, nothing more. Oh distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December, And in evsry single member of my body pains I bore Eagerly I wished the morrow, vainly had I sought to borrow From drugs surcease of sorrow—sorrow for my pains galore; And I asked it I should ever be as healthy as before. Quoth the Doctor-" Nevermore Your chest is bad, that's certain your neuralgia always hurting. And your )iver is so sluggish that life's to you a bore And your heart's so bad at beating that in vain you're sleep entreating, While from weakness even now you perspire frcm every pore"— But, Dcctor, when shall I be fit to pass the threshold of my door Qouth the Doctor-" Nevermore." Piesently my soul grew stronger hesitating then no longer, Nurse, send for GWILYM EVANS' QUININE BITTERS, I implore And the fact is, after tapping one bottle, I was nappinz In the sweet refreshing napping I had known in Uays of yore And with neuralgia, palpitation, indigestion, and bronchitis I was troubled never more. Now, to all within my hearing, who are these ailments fearing, I will give the good advice I received myself before See that EVANS' stamp's unbroken, and the bottle bears the tcken Of "GWILYM ETANS' QUININE BITTERS" so well known and praised of yore.

There were four matches in the Combination on Saturday. Three were well contested, and the fourth was a runaway affair, Northwich beating Leek by nine goals to one. Leek have shown some very in and out form in the competition, and we fancy that, like many other teamp, they are net able to play well on a heavy ground. Stockport County, a greatly improved team, gave Chirk a good game at Chirk, the home team just winning by two goals tc one. Hiles was again in goal for Chirk, and performed in good style. The defence was rather shaky at times. The forwards did well. Egan was hurt in the that half, but we trust not seriously. Buxton, who visit Wrexham on Monday, the 8th inst., had the best of Gorton Villa at Buxton. Wrexham went to Denton, and bad some difficulty in getting a full team. Wilding was assisting Westminster Rovers against Brymbo Institute, and Parry was unable to get away. Lea was accordingly put in the centre, his place at half-back being filled by Stakes, of the Gymnasium, and W. Turner partnered his brother on the right. At the last moment, J. Turner found that he waa unable to gr, end Parry was fortunately able to tiil his place. R. Davies did not turn up at Wrexham, but he joined the team at Chester. At Manchester one of the half-backs was missed, but he had only gone before, and joined the team on their way to the ground. The Denton Club has a well appointed ground, but the field of play was in a terrible state. It was worse than the field at Gorton. In front of each goal there were about six inches of mud. and miniature lakes were all over the ground. It was most amusing on one occasion to see three players endeavouring to get possession of the ball, which was floating in a pool of water. After a few seconds the players separated, each evidently being under the impression that another man had secured the ball. This was not so, however, as the br 11 was still to be seen floating on the water, and there was more splashing before it was fished out. Wrexham had nearly all the play in the first half, and led at the interval by three goals to nil. The home team played up in the second portion of the game, while the visitors tired, and after thirty minutes' play they equalised the score. Then Wrexham seemed to realise the position and to grasp the fact that, although they bad had a clear lead of three goals, they might be beaten. They played up well, but failed to score, although they had hard lines. A good game thus ended in a draw of three Loals each. All the members of the Wrexham team played well, but a mistake was made in not playing more on the defensive in the second half. Pugh aid well in goal, but he might have saved the third goal. Stokes had a very severe trial, and cauii out of it very well. Westminster Rovers and Brymbo Institute met once more in a cup tie on Saturday. This time it was in the Charity Cup Competition, and a good game ended in a draw of one goal each. The Institute refused to play an extra half-hour, and the Rovers have consequently claimed the match. Mancott and Pentre United threw Llandudno Swifts out of the Junior Cup Competition last season, but the Swifts have had their revenge, as on Satur- day, in the same competition, they defeated the United Club at Queen's Ferry by three goals to one. Wrexham play their Welsh Cup team against Westminster Rovers on the Racecourse on Saturday. The semi-final tie between Wrexham and Chirk will be played at Shrewsbury on the 13th inst. The Irish International will be played at Bangor. Wrexham play West Bromwich Albion on the Racecourse, on Monday, the 22nd inst. The third fmoking concert, in connection with the Wrexham Club, was held at the Golden Lion Hotel, on Wednesday night. The matches in the Combination, which had to be abandoned on January 9ch, in consequence of the severe weather, will be played as follows:—Wrexham v. Bnxtor, at Wrexham, on February 8th Chester v. Chirk, at Chester, on March 7th and Gorton Villa v. Danton, at Denton, on Easter Monday. At the meeting of the Football Association Coun- cil, on Wednesday night, the following resolution, bearing upon the Eveiton dispute, was passed :— That this Coutici), in accordance with its past decisions, will not rtcognise nor accept the member- ship of any club bearing a name similar to one already affiliated to this Association, and in the cafe of the Everton Club will only recognise the action of the majority of its members at a duly constituted meet- ing."
ST. ASAPH V. RHODDLA^.—Played at Rhuddlan, on Saturday, the home team winning by one goal to nil. WBEXHAM OLD BOYS V. WBEXHAM ATHLETIC.— Played on tho ground of the latter, on Saturday. The game was well contested, and ended in a draw of two goals each. WBtlHAM VICTORIA V. SALTNEY RESERVE. — Played at Wrexham, on Saturday. Saltney scored first, and the game finally ended in a win for the visitors, by three goals to one, WREXHAM SHOP ASSISTANTS' ASSOCIATION T. WREXHAM OLYMPIC.-Played on the ground of the former, on Friday. The Assistants had all the best of the game, and won by ten goals to nil. WBEXHAM GYMNASIUM V. EBDDIG ALBION.— Played on the ground of the latter, on Saturday. The visitors kicked t If, and their goal immediately had two narrow cscapes, Davies having hard lines with two shots The Gyms, then took play into the home team's quarters and pressed heavily, but owing to good defence and bad shooting failed to get through. The Albion now missed some easy chances of scoring, and the GymB. again made tiacks for the opposing goal, and just before half-time succeeded in gaining their first point, the teams crossing over with the score standing-Gymnasium, one goal Albion, nil. Give and take play opened the second half. un- til the Gym. again tjok up the pressure, but Mum- mery made some unart saves. At length, one of tie Alhiou players headed through his own goal, and the Gyms. peering another directly afterwards, the game resulted in a win for the vis't irn by three goats to none.

DRUIDS v. DENBIGH. The Drttids were. visited on Saturday hy t' e Den- bigh team. The visitors had been doing well lut^ly, especially in the Welsh Cun Competition, ami a g' od game was anticipated. The unfavorable weather, however, prevented what might have hePII a good "gate," and tiltre was only a s'nall number of spectators, winen Porter kicked off for tlio visitors, shortly -.fier three o'clock. The hall was well met by W. E«">nr, who passed it to tht- left wing, JoneR and Dtvier,, going ftwav, the latter shortiig well. J. R. Jones Wflf: now cuii'picu^iis, tutkiin^ finely. The oppoping te*iu CON;(] maUe no headway. The home left again received the ball from Attwell, and after a splendid run, Jones passed to the ri^ht, and Evans sent in a swift shot, which Lloyd had no chance of stopping. From the centre kick, the visitors showed up better, but many easy chanceB of scoring were lost. The tjama crossed over with the Druids lead- ing by one goal to iiii.-During the second half, the visitors were kept entirely on ths defensive. Their goal was assailed from all quarters, but Lloyd warded off some difficult shots in splendid style. Jones and Pemllebury broke away, and after a fine run, the latter passed the leather to the right and Roberts shot wide. After this, the pressure by the Druids was continued, and after several well timed shots had been cleverly neg(ici-,tt--d by Lloyd, Evans put through a second goal, and batore the whistle sounded, th» h'ine club had notched three more goals, and won hy five goals to ni\ The following were the te.,im,3 :-Druitis G.

Denton, who started with ten men, kicked off, and Wrexham at once took up the running, I airy Bcoring from a pasti by W. Turner. From the kick-off, W. Turner forced a corner. Ti;is was taken by R. Davies, who placed the ball beautifully, and Parry headed thr.-tigh a second point. Wrexham still had all the best of the game, and Lea scoieii a third point with a long shot. At half-time the icore stood- Wrexham, 3 goals; Denton, nil. 0:1 changing ends Denton had a turn, and after about half-an-hour's play they had equalised the score.

SOAMESISI) CHARITY CUP. I SECOMD ROUND. WESTMINSTER ROVERS V. BRYMBO INSTITUTE.— Played on Stansty Park, on Saturdav. A strong wind blew from goal to goal. In the first half the visitors had the wind in their favor, but despite th's the Rovers made good headway, and a corner was soon concede'* them. This was well saved by the defenàefp, and a chance was now given the Institute, but Griffiths cleared. The ball was again taken up to the Brymbo end and another corner forced, but with- out avail. A corner for the Institute was cleared. AfterBome good pasing among the Institute forwai ds, Robeits scored for the Institute amidst cheers. Alter the kick-cff, the Rovers had the best of the exchange, and had hard lines in not scoring more than one. Towards the cJlIe of the half, however, the Inatitu e pressed. No change toi k place in the score, and at half-time the Institute led by one goal to nil.— On changing ends the home team at once assumed the agtreesive, whilst their opponents strengthened the defence. For a long time the Brymbo defence was severely taxed. The backs, however, played in grand form, while Charles in goal was particularly safe. At length the Brymbo forwards raced away, and Griffiths had to handle. The match became most exciting, and just before time George Samuels just beat Charles with a low sh"\ Alchought the Rovers pressed from this p.,int to the tinish they were unable to score, and when the w)ii>tl. blew the result was a draw ot one goal each. The teferee ordered the teams to play an extra lialf-liour, hut the Brymbo men refused. The following were the teams :—Westminster Itoverii-J. Griffiths, goal; C. Jones and J. Jones, backs; E.

I THE ENGLISH CUP. Saturday's ties in the second round of the competi. tion proper aroused general interest. There were only eight inatchep, and in one of these at Acctington the ground was in such a bad state as to make good foot- ball a matter of supreme difficulty. Indeed, the referee decided that the turf was unfit for a cup tie. However, the other contests were successfully got through. The defeat of the Blackburn Rovers was not quite unexpected. Results ;— WOLVERHAMPTON WASDEBEES V. SHEFFIELD UNITED -This match took placs at Wolverhampton in the presence of a company numbering 4.000. The Wanderers, who had the advantage of the wind, scored the first goal through the agency of Baker. Subsequently they obtained a second, but the United responded with a goal, and at the interval the record .v. two to or.e in favor of the home side. After change of endi Wolverhampton still got the better of the play, and they ultimately won by three goa!s to one. BURNLEY V. STOKE -Five thousand people eathered to see this tie at Burnley. The home eleven had rather the better of the early play, but they found their opponents' defence remarkably strong. How- ever, in half an hour Burnley obtained a goal, and a" the interval they still held this advantage. During the second period aff irii underwent a great change. Stoke equalised, and then abided two more goals. Thus were Burnley beaten hy three t;oa)s to nne SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY V. SMALL HEATH.—Having waived their right to decide this tie in Birmingham, the Small Ileath eleven journeyed to Sheffield, where an immense crowd assembled to see this gamp. Richardson kicked a goal for the Wednesday within a quarter of an hour of the start. This was the on!y point prior to the ii:t-i vai. The home team had two men ordered off tho field in the second half. Sub. sequently Wednesday scored again, and a spirited match was won hv them by two goals to love, WEST BROMWICH ALBION V. BLACKBURN ROVERS. -On the Amnion gi-, ui(I at West Bromwich there was P. grpat crowd of people, i ntimated t) number about I 12.003. The Rovprs were without Lofthou»e and Southwoith. Pearson scored for the Albion within five minutes of the kick-off. This lend the home side maintained Tor a 1)JJ time. Tha gnnrn was very fut and brilliant. Townley eventually equalised the scores, but befoie "change" Pearson ;,laced ti.e Albion a goal to the good. Afterwards the Rovers made great efforts to save the match. These were futile, while, on the other hand, G=dd.-s added a third point for West Bromwich, who won by three goals to one. SUNDERLAND ALBION V. NOTTS FOREST.—With the town c'ub playing away the Albi >n had the fielll to themselves at Sunderland on Saturday, and the attendance at this match numbered 10,000. It was a fine struggle, in spite (,f a strong wind blowing. Biggins registered a goal for the Notts men before half-time. No other point was recorded, and Notts won by one goal to none. SUNDERLAND v. ACCBINGTON.-In wet weather some 4,000 people visited the Accrington ground to see this match. Both teams protested against the state of the ground, and an ordinary game was played, Accrington gaining the victory by one goal to none. ASTON VILLA v. DABWEN.—In windy weather these teams played off their tie at Birmingham. Five thousand people were present. Shortly before change of ends Devey obtained the first goal for the Villa, who held this lead at the interval. The second period was almost a repetition of the first. Hodgett3 secured the second goal for the Villa, who thus won by two goals to none. MIDDLESBROUGH V. PRESTON NORTH END. — Having beaten the Ironopolis after two meetings, the Prestou North End had not finished with Middles- brough football, for they were drawn against the town club in the second round. Fine weather was experienced, and there was a very large company, numbering 9,000. The first half of the game was particularly even, but Middlesbrough managed to score once. In the second portion Galiooher and Ross scored goals for Preston North End, wl.o won by two goals to one. DRAW FOB THE THIRD ROUD, At the meeting of the Football Association Council, held in London on Wednesday evening, Gemmelllind Richardson, of Sheffield Wednesday, who had been ordered off the ground by the referee, were suspended for one week for their misconduct in the cup tie match Sheffield Wednesday v. Small Heath, at Sheffield, on Saturday last. In the case of Devey, of Small Heath, it was decided that the player be called upon for an explanation of his conduct in the same match. Accrington and Sunderland were ordered to play their tie in the second round at Accrington on Saturday nxt. Should the ground be then unfit the two clubs are to replay on Wednesday, February 10th, at the Black- burn Hovers' ground, or earlier if mutually agreed upon. Tha referee appointed for the tie is MrJ. Fox, Sheffield. The protest of Middleabrouzh against Preston North End was, after a lengthy hear- ing, dismissed. The draw for the third round was made with the following result :— Wolverhampton Wanderers v. Aston Villa. Notts Forest v. Preston North End. West Bromwich Albion v. Sbeffield Wednesday. Stoke v. Accrington or Sunderland. The ties to be decided on February 13tb, the first- named club in each tie to have choice of ground. Sheffield Wednesday induced Small Heath to play at Sheffield last Saturday by offering them £ 200, and Sunderland, who now appear rather doubtful as to the result of their tie with Accrington, have followed Sheffield's example. They have offered Accrington 2200 to go to Sunder] and next Saturday to playof fthe English cup tie there instead of playing at Accrington. The Accrington Football Committee considered the offer, and decided not to accept, and to ask for a higher sum. There is, however, a strong feeling at Accring- ton against the tie being played at Sunderland, and if the Accringtun team is allowed to go at all it will be at a fabulous price, probably at nothing less than £350.
WELSH JUNIOR CHALLENGE I CUP. SECOND ROUND. BUCKLEY VICTORIA V. BUCKLET.—This tie was re-played at Buckley, on Saturday. The Victoria again asserted their superiority, and won by three goals to two. THIRD ROUND. OSWESTBY HARRIERS V. CHIRK FESERVE.—Played at Oswestry, on Saturday. The Harriers scored immediately after the start, but Chirk equalised before half-time. The second half was grandly con- tested, Chirk scoring again, and winning by two goals to one. I LLANDUDNO SWIFTS V. MANCOTT AND PENTRE UNITED.—Played at Queensferry, on Saturday, the I visitors winning by three goals to nil.
I THE ALLIANCE. I In the Alliance on Saturday, those old rivals, Crewe Alexandra and Newton Heath, met on the tatter's ground. Newton Heath won by five goals to three, and places them second in the list. Grimsby defeated Ardwick by four goals to nil, at Grimsby, and Bootle got the beat of Lincoln City, at Bootle, by three goals to two, A lively match was that between Walsall Town Swifts and Burton Swifts, at the former place. The Swifts from Burton finally won by three goals to two.

I LITERARY NOTICES & REVIEWS. THE QCIVEB (Caesell and Co.)-Tliis month's number is good. The contents are varied to suit all readerp. THE LADIES' TREASURY (Bemrose and Sons).— This magazine keepti up its reputation for interesting and useful articles. No lady ought to be without it. The Fashion intelligence is by no means the least valuable feature. OOT-DOOB GAMES —The tenth part of out-door games and recreations (56. Paternoster Row, London) continues, and brings to a close the chapter on skating. There are also chapters on toboggans and snowshoes, sports of the play-ground and acme mili. tarv sports. THE SUNDAY AT HOME (52, Pi +,er n- ser-row, London) contains a varied collection of articles. The Rev. George Stokes. D.D., under the title Modem Discoveries and the Christian Faith," examines "The Apology of Aristides" with much ability, and ought to he carefully read. The GIRLS' OWN PAPER (56, Paternoster-row, London.) This magazTne, which has so successful and useful a career, c intinues to cater for its readers with its usual care. The articles are useful, and every girl will, if she is wise, read and profit by them. The Answers to Correspondents are good, and form by no means the least interesting part of the publication. BOYS' OWN.—The February numb?r of the Boys' Own Paper" (56, Paternoster Row, London), is quite up to the usual high standard of this paper. David Ker's Russian story, "The Champions of the Kremlin," is concluded, as is also "Among the Dahoineans," by James Cox, R.N. Mr H. F. Hohden brings his article on The Boy's Own Wind- mill, and how to build it" to a conclusion. A new story, entitled The Orchid-seekers," commences and promises well. THE STOny OF AFRICA.-Messrs Cassell and Co., Limited, London, have jnst published the first part of a new work by Dr. Robert Brown, entitled The story of Africa and its explorers." With the part is presented one of the best maps of Africa that we have seen. The number is well printed on good paper, and is copiously Illustrated. The illustrations are all good, and some of them, especially the landscapes, are capital. The view of Zanzibar on the first page is a chnrming little block. SUNDAY MAGAZINE (Isbis'er and C..) This. popular periodical is always interesting and welcome. Among the articles this month, we would refer our readers to the account of Berkeley Castle, given by Geoffrey Winterwood, under tho title "A Seven- Oenturied Home." Canon Talbot's pap-r, Our Bible—How it has come to us," will be helpful to many. We are glad to find it is only the first of a series. Under the heading "Natural Chloroform," the Rev. T. Wood imparts some interesting informa- tion regarding pain, which he considers to be relative that is, an animal does not feel the pain from a given injury which a human being would if that injury were inflicted upon him, The suggestion is v?)u?b!p, and deierves to be considered, A NEW GLEE.—Mr W. M. Robert", of Wrexham, whose name is WRII.associated with musical matterp, particularly in North Wales, lia4 just published a glee entitled Cwsg, fy maban, eiveg 11 (Sleep, my darlinar, sleep). It is tuneful and pleasing. There is no doubt that it will become popular, and we hear it has been selected by an important Eisteddfod. Messrs Hughes and Son, Wrexham. are the fublishers, and the price is O.N. 4d, aol-fa ld, It has Welsh and English words CASSELL'S FAMILY MAGAZINE (Caesell and Co.}.- February's number is a particularly good one. The serials are full of increasing interest, and the short tales are readable and pleasing. Longfellow's transla- tion of Goethe's Wanderer's Night Soncs" have been set to music by M. Scal4 for soprano or t-nor. The setting, which is cood, ranges from F to A flat. The article entitled The Contents of a Hair-Trunk is especially good. "The Gatherer," one of the best features of this magazine, is rather over the usual standard of excellence this month. GREBN'S SHORTHisTORY.—Tbe fifth part of the issue of Green's "Short History of the English Pt opW (Messrs Macmillan and Co., London), con- tains some interesting and curious illustrations. The frontispiece ia a fine re-production of the "Naminc of St, John the Baptist," from a wall painting 12th century, in the crypt of Canterbury Cathedral. Two very fine illustrations are those of the Cateau-Galliard from the East and from the South. Both are after J. M. W. Turner, and the view from the south is a particularly striking engraving. The fauna of Ireland as described by Gerald of Wales, The father of our porular literature, as he is the originator of the political and ecclesiastical pamphlet," is most cuiious. Amongst other illustration", we may mention a map of London, in the 13th century. THE NEWBEBY HOUSE MAGAZINE, (Griffith. Farran and Co., Limited.) Canon Carter opens the February number with a paper full of deep nnd earnest religious feeling upon "The Intercession of Christ." Its tone is pleasingly broad and sympathetic. The Rev. Dr. H. Hayman follows with a vigorous criticism of Professor Goldwin Smith's article in the NINETEENTH CENTURY of October. Dr. Hayman intends having a second oout wnn the Irioieasor next month. It would be interesting to have his reply. Mrs L. B. YValford concludes her interesting article upon Sydney Smith, which shows his wit and his wisdom. Oue is impressed how thoroughly human a man he was how tender and how full of reasonableness. Kind, yet never failed he when duty had to be done. Even in his last illness his wit bubbled out I feel so weak he said to an inquiring friend, that I verily believe if a knife were put into my hand I should not have energy enough to stick it into a Dissenter." He died on February 22nd, 1845, to the loss of the church and the nation, for he was beloved by all. Canon Knox Little reviews the recent life of Laurence Oliphant, and if one cannot agree with the writer in everything, it must be confessed the article is able and interesting. The Bishop of Derry's poem, The Noith Wind and the Harp," is good, but is too jerky for our fancy. The remaining contents of this excel- lent magazine, although interesting, call for no special notice. A NEW WOEK.—Messrs Cassel1 and Company are I about to publish in monthly parts, price 7d, "The story of Africa and its Explorers." by Dr. Robert Brown, M A., F.L.S., F R.G.S., etc., assisted by eminent African travellers, with numerous original illustrations. The story of Africa and its Ex- plorers will be related by Dr. Robert Brown, him. self a traveller of wide experience, who has made frequent journeys in various partfi of Africa and cognate countries, and has gained wide celebrity by such works as The Countries of the World," The Peoples of thfl W«' Farfh and its Story," &c. Special atteiiiiu-. yeen given to the pictorial portion of the work. All the illustrations will be new, and expressly prepared for this publication. In order that the public may be furnished with abso- lutely correct ideas of the continent, a large portion of the illustrations will be reproduced from photographs taken by travellers, missionaries, and explorers, whilst the original designs will be prepared by well-known artists who have spared no pains to render their drawing true to nature. Thus the picture will really elucidate the text, and be of such a character as will appropriately illustrate this important work. The map which is issued with Part 1. is most complete. The travellers' routes shown have been compiled by an eminent geographer, whose research will be revealed by the first glance at the map, and confirmed by minute study of its comprehensiveness. The European possessiono and spheres of influence are fully up to date in all particulars. The first part is all that could be desired. This very valuable work ought to have a very large number of readers. THE LEISURE HOUB.—The February number of "The Leisure Hour" \50, Paternofter-row, London) is a capital part. The serial. In Spite of Herself," is progressing favorably. Mr Flinders Petrie con- tributes another of his most interesting papers on "The Romance of Ancient Literature." He writes of old letters. H. W. Mussinghain intends to deal with the Great London Dailies." and of oourse writes first of The Times. The article is readable, and contains some interesting information. The articles on The Statesmen of Europe, which were a feature ot the magazine last year, re-commence. The statesmen of Russia are dealt with. The follow- ing extract, with reference to the recent Russiin loan, is interesting By means of cajolery and the most transparent flattery, the Russians have now persuaded the French people to give them the money desired. The affection at present existing between the greatest autocracy in Europe and a Republic is a matter that causes laughter and amusement to unprejudiced spectators, and the wonder is n erelv how long this friendship will endure. It mils', be said in justice to Vischnegradsky that he is not in favor of the per- secution of the Jews he is far too acute a financier not tio recognise the great importance of the Hebrews on-the Stock Exchange, and for this reason he baa always been an upholder of religious tolerance. But for him the persecution against the Jews might have broken out sooner, and it is possible that this persecu- tion may be the cause of his ultimate fall. It is a subject of constant dispute between him and the Minister of the Interior, who is the champion of intolerance and rigorous measures and it is possible that Vischnegradsky might have overturned his ndve; sary Durnnff on this questior, if Durnoll were not the man of straw of the omnipotent President of the Holy Synod, Pofci^donostzeff." GOOD WORDS (Isbister and Co.), for February has many articles of value. Mr Frank Pod more. M A lion, secretary of tne Society for Psychical Research, has a paper upon" Madame Blavateky of the Theo- sophical Society," which is strongly critical. Some of the facts given are damaging to the mystical side of Maaame's character, and suggest that some of the manifestations were something like a shabby trick. But there is evidently more in the cult than its miracles. Its spiritual side Ï3 unique, and the fact that Mrs Besant and others of acute mind should have been attracted by it from a creed of a more materia- list kind, is one of the wonders of the day, and sug- gest I thoughts which oithodox people can consider in hope. The following is a summary of the creed, digested from Mr Sinnett's exposition The main thesis is the BudiVst dogmi of re-incarn ition, in the light of modern ideas of evolution. The individual man. the human soul and body, is composed of seven parts. Of these tha four lower constitute the perisliilble envelope of the higher—the human soul. With the process of death comes a separation the lower principles, being earthy in their affinities, cling to the earth, and inak* their Pres-nee felt,, Rometimes as ghosts, as the so-callod "spirits" of mediumistic s^inceg, or as evil influences obsessing the minds of those who open themselves to uch intercourse. Biit the spiritual part of man first undergoes a process of oblivion and purgation, and thereafter a period, shorter or longer according to the merits of the life preceding, of beatific contemplation and enjoyment. With the end cf this period of D-vachin coines ever another sleep and ever renewo-I life on earth. This continual systole and di.isto'e which make up the life of man-a watch or a vision be- tween a sleep and a sleep-is but a representation in mina- ture of vaster cosmic pulsations. These are the days and nights of Brahma, when the whole universe slumbers and wakes agaia to renewed activity. And through the long- drawn chtin of sun- and ciri ling planets, through all the stupendous cycl., of th3 ages, throughout the waxing and waning of all things from life to nothingness and back again to larger life, the human soul, the spark of the central spirit, retain' its identity, and bears with it in all < re-births the inevitable burden of Kirma—the fate which each man by his own acts an:\ thoughts b:!s ordained for him-elf, Qui qne suo pati mur manes." Thema11 is the th m which he has made, he reapi now the ciop of which the seed was sown in another age and another country, and yet by himself. The magazine contains very interesting papers upon "John Iloppner, R.A upon The Manohester Shin Canal." and upon "The Moon, the last being by Si; Robert Ball. LITTLE FOLIS (Cassell and Co.).—In a portion of this magazine called "The Poet Office," Miss Pauline A. Crump, of Twickenham, aged 13i, after describing a waterspout she has seen, sayE—"I have taken Little Folks in for three years, and am sorry that I did not do so before, as I think it is the nicest magazine in the world for children." We agree with the yuung lady, and she as well as the numerous readers of it will Bay that the February number is even better than ever. THE JEST BOOK.—" The choicest anecdotes and saying" collected and arranged hy the Mr Mark Lunon, forms one of the pretty little volumes of the Golden Treasury" series, which Messrs Maciniiian and Co., are now iosuing at a reduced t)ric.?. There are 1711 jests, some old and some newer, but nearly all are good. The bouk ouaht to prove a pleasant companion in odd moments. The fionti^pisce id ex- cellent, and the appearance of the be ok is pleasant. MONXBOSE.—The most recent volume in the Eiig- lishmen of Action" series, published by Messrs MacMil'an and Co., is by Mr Mowbray Morris, and deals vitli the brilliant but uuforlunate James Graham, Marquis of Montrose. The story of this nobleman, who acted so prominently in the Stirling times between 1637 and 1646, is told with much abilitj, and the account of his execution, which took place in Edinburgh in 1650, is most graphic. No one who studies the history of this period can afford to pass over this very able book, which contains a por- trait of Montrose taken from a picture by Gerard Honthorst, painted in 1649, and now in the possession of the Earl of Dalhousie. MACHILLAS's MAGAZINE.—(Macmilian.) The story Don Orsino" by F. Marion Crawford is continued, and we need hardly say, having regard to the writer, that the interest is fully maintained. The article entitled "The Beautiful and the True" by Mark Reid deals with an important, phase of the educa- tional question which ought to be eeriously considered. Our military unreadiness" is the title of an article Written from the poiat of view of the regimental officer." It is pitched in the minor, bat modulates into the major method at the close. The proposals for reform seem sensible, but alas common sense and army management have long. since parted company. M Rudyard Kippling, or his douole, lias written "Tne Village Legacy." It deals with India, and anything which rouses-us to a sense of our duty to that great dependency deserves readinc and study. The two remaining articles are-" Romance and youth and The flight from the fields." The lutter by Arthur Gaye deals with a well-known political problem. Sir Frederick Pollock, Bart., contributes It short "fantasy" entitled "Sir Michael," and N ational Pensions" is treated by H. Clarence Bourne, who criticises recent plans with much ability. THE WELSH REVIEW. (Kegan P;>.ul and Cii).-This month's number has a very attractive selection of articled. Mr XV. T. Stead replies to Mr Harold Frederic upon the Dilke question. It is spicy for writs, for libels were threatened by Mr Stead, and Mr Frederic has withdrawn a seriuus charge he made against his opponent. We hope we nave heard the last of this business. D^an Owen con- tributes an article on The Constitution of the Welsh University." It is a valuable contribution to the discussion of the question. Mr Henry Salusbury Milman M.A., deals with Wales Present, and Wales Past," and ridicules the idea of what we know as Welsh Home Rule. The arguments are by no means strong, and no doubt wiil be crushed next month. I'he Views of the Member of Treorky" come to an end, and are the work of the editor, Mr Ernest Bowen Rowlatidp. They are to be reprinted, price 2a 6J. Mr Bowen Rowlands say a shilling Come, now, don't be hard The Notes are above the average, and the remarks upon tha late Dulce of Clarence manly and sincere. This month's magazine is reniarkably good, aud readable from cover to over. THS ENGLISH ILLUSTRATED MAGAZINE (Mac- millan.)-An excellent portrait of Mr A. J. Balfour, probably the most interesting political personage ot the present day—save and except tine-forms the frontispiece of this month's magazine. Tiie short letter-press which accompaims it is by Mr Henry W. Lucy. Mr Lucy states that Mr Balfour is passionately fond of music, and is uow engaged upon a work of literary biography, which promises to be of general interest. The article includes a reproduction of Leslie Ward's well-known picture of "The Fourth Parly," which appeared in Vanity Fair, and add* much to t'ie value of the observations. Mr C. J. Bowen Cooke, assistant running superintendent, locomotive department, contributes a fascinating description of the "London and North-western Loco- motive Works at Crewe." It is lucidly written, aud is plentifully illustrated from official photographs. Mr Cooke calculates that the London and North-western engines collectively consume 3,095 tons of cJal per day. Seeing that compound entines have been proved in actual working to consume about six pounds of coal per mile less than other engines on the same. work, and that they are daily taking loads without assistance, which any other type cf engine would re- quire two engines to work, it is evident that their adoption has been of material advantage to the com- pany. The most powerful engine ever built is be- lieved by Mr Cooke to be "The Greater Britain," one of the new "compound" locomotives constructed b" Mr Webh, which, though it was only turned out of the Crewe manufactory the other day, has already had the honor of conveying her Mnjesty from Carlisle to Wolverhampton, en route from Scotland to Windsor. Although heavier than any oiher, it Ï3 so constructed that there is no more than the usual weight on any one pair of wheels, and there ii therefore no extra strain on the perma- nent way or bridges. This is brought about by the two pairs of driving-wheels being placed in fr. nt of the fire-box, and an additional pair of small wheels behind the fire-bax and underneath the foot-plate, having half-an-inch of tide play. The wheels under the front, or leading end, are fitted with Mr Webbs patent radial axle-box, so that, although of great length, the engine can travel, it is said, over curves with complete safety. One of the chitf fea- tures is the combustion chamber insi.le the barrel of the boiler, which has the effect of arresting the gases from the fire-box on their way to the chimney, causing all the heat developed by them to he made the utmost me of for generating steam. These extracts show how vsry pleasing and instructive Mo Cooke's article if. The s tory of Brahan Castle is agrua.\hly told by Julia, Marchioness of Tweedale and L idy Jeune. Mr Henry James has a short n' te upon Mrs Humphry Ward," and a very clever eugra-'ing of Julian Story's portrait of this dis'.in^uished lady is given. Mr James' praise, which i-i genet oil?, is evidently the cute xna of a sincere admiration for her genius. Mr Joseph Hation, who last month dis- coursed about tobacco, te!ls us this, of the visit he paid to the great piano factory of Messrs John Brins- meall and Sons. It is a magnificent and interesting advertisement. "The Mostiies of Tkmcen" written and illustrated by Edgar Barclay, is informing and worthy attention. Those readers who enjoy the serials will be glad to hear that Mr Henry James has begun one called "Nona Vincent." Mrs Oliphant contributis a short story entitled "A Girl of the Period."

THE COLLIERS AND THE COAL CARTERS. Recently the coal carters at Rhos raised their prices for carting coal from the liavod and other collieiies. To this some of the colliers have taken an objection, and iu order to protest against it a meeting of colliers was held at the Public Hall on Friday evening, Mr Thomas Hughes, Campbell- street, presiding. Several speeches were made for and against the carters, and Mr Joseph Hughes, carter, Ponkey, and Mr John Evans, carter, Rhos, addressed the meeting in their own defence. Eventually a number of colliers from the three works (tlavod, Bersham, and Vauxhall) were appointed as a deputatiou to meet the Carters' Union.
THE COLLIERS AND WEEKLY PAYS, THE APPLICATION ACCEDED TO. On Wednesday, a meeting of the maatfis and the representatives of the 24 collieries affiliated in the North Wales Miner=' Federation was held in the Queen's Hotel, Chester. Mr Dennis, Ruabon, was voted to the chair and having briefly opened the meeting, Mr Denni. invited the representatives of the men to state their cise. Mr loan Williams, the North Wales miners' agent, explained fully the position and requirements of the men after which a general discussion ensued, and the masters granted the men's request. The weekly pay will be in force the second week in March next. The utmost good feeling existed throughout the meet- ing between the masters and the representatives of the mea. Mr lean Williams proposed, and Mr W. Davies seconded, a cordial vote of thaniis to the masters for their kind and generous treatment, and hoped that meeting would be the means of further cementing the good feeling that already existed between the masters and the min of LIle North Wales Federation. The atten-i»»».c ar, the fortnightly matting of the llalod colliers held in the club-room at the Public Hall, Rhos, on Wednesday evening, was unusually large. The large clubroom wa.s crowded in ex- pectation of hearing the result of the conference held between masters and men the same day at Chester. It was nearly eight o'clock before Mr Thomas Thomas, the Hafod delegate, arrived at the meeting and announcing the good news that the demand for weekly pays had been granted.— On the motion of Mr Samuel Roberts, Mountain- street, seconded by Mr William Green, Hall- street, a vote of thanks was passed to Mr Dennis- for his action in the matter. The first weekly payment at Hafod will take place on March 12jh. At the other collieries it will be a week late. At the same meeting several speakers spoke in favor of the miners' union, and we believe that mai,y of the colliers are likely to join the union H-fxt pay- day.
