FOOTBALL. '1'1 _1' d d. The season is fast drawing to an en d an d in another week ihe close seisoii will be upon us. The Combination clubs are rapidly finishing their fixtures. Wrexham have had a good share of work to get through lately, in order to fulfil their engagements. After being beaten by Chirk 011 Dydd Llun Pawb, on Good Friday they played Gorton Villa at Wrex- ham before a good gate. Gorton were without Bennett, one of their best forwards, and had to play the second half without Armitt, who received an injury to his head. I He was removed in an unconscious state to the In- firmary, where it was found lie was suffering from concussion of the brain. We are glad to learn that he is now progressing favorably. The game was a good one, and ended in a draw of three goals each, NN rex)iani scoring their third goal from a penalty kick—the first goal, we believe, that has been scored for the club under the new rule. The Wrexham half-backs and Wilding amongst the forwards played well. For the Villa, the backs kicked well. Pickford and McCarthy were the best of the forwards. On Saturday, the return match with Northwich Victoria was played at Northwich. A special train was run by the Manchester Sheffield and Lincolnshire Co., and was well patronised. The Wrexham team made a very poor show, and were beaten by nine goals to nil—the third occasion this season on which the Wrexham eleven have been beaten by nine goals to nil. Wrexham had the worst of the luck. Snow fell heavily during the match. and Wrexham had to play against the storm in the first half. In the second portion of the game the wind ap- peared to turn round completely. The home team were in great form, and amongst the Wrexham men, Stokes and Prichard were about the best. From all appearances, unless Wrexham bestir themselves, they will figure amongst the last four. Chester are playing up well, and defeated Everton at Chester by six goals to two. Everton, however, only niaved nine men in the second half, two having only injured. injured. The final tie for the Welsh Cup, between Chirk and Westminster Rovers, on the Wrexham Racecourse, on Monday, was witnessed by a large crowd of spectators. Both teams were fully represented, with one ex- ception, G. Samuels playing instead of W. Davies, on the right wing, in the Rovers' team. The game was a very good one, and was well worth seeing. The Rovers made a capital show, especially in the first half, and led at the interval by one goal to nil. On crossing over, Chirk at once equalised, and having more of the play than their opponents put on another point before the finish. The better team undoubtedly won, although with a little luck the Rovers would have made a draw of it For Chirk, Povey did well in goal, and W. P. Jones played a cool game at back. Morris was the best half, and all the forwards played well. Williams kept goal well for the Rovers, but should have saved the second goal scored by Chirk. The backs and half-backs played a good game, Wilding especially showing up prominently. Amongst the forwards, G. Jones was a good centre, but rambled a bit too much. The other four played a hard game, but Samuels was lame in the second half. II Sir Watfcin Williams Wynn has signified his inten- tion of fencing the Druids' ground. WREXHAM VICTORIA v. GRESFORD.—Played at Gres- ford on Good Friday, the home team winning by two goals to one. WREXHAM VICTORIA V. OSWESTRY ST.

DENBIGH FOOTBALL COMPETITION. This competition was decided at Denbigh on Mon- day, before a good number of spectators. The games started at about half-past ten, and the final tie was decided at about half-past five. The gold medals were gained by the Denbigh team, and the silver medals by the Corwen team. The medals were distributed by the Mayoi (Capt. Wynne Edwards).

THE ALLIANCE. I Saturday's matches in the Alliance were full of interest. Notts Forest and Small Heath met at Birmingham. The Forest led by' a couple of points at the interval, but in the end they only won by two goals to one. At Burton the Swifts defeated Bootle by five goals to one, scoring thrice before half-time. At Lincoln the home club gained a substantial win over Birmingham St. George's by six goals to none and at Grimsby the town eleven vanquished the Walsall Swifts by two goals to none. Notts Forest are now secure in their position at tho top of the list,

Result—Buxton, 5 goals; Macclesfield 1 goal. DENTOX Y. GOUTOX VILLA.-At Denton on Satur- day. The home team were poorly represented, and at half-time were two goals to the bad. On re-start- ing, the game became more even, and Denton scored. Result—Gorton Villa, 4 goals; Denton 3 goals. MACCLESFIELD Y. NORTHWICH VICTORIA. This return fixture was decided on the Macclesfield ground on Tuesday, before 3,000 spectators. At half-time each team had scored once. Soon after the opening of the second half Macclesfield scored a second goal, and a stubbornly contested game ended—Maccles- field, two goals; Northwich Victoria, one goal. NORTHWICH VICTORIA v. WREXHAM.—At Northwich. Snow rendered the ground very slippery. Northwich scored thrice before the interval, Finnerhan account- ing for two and Hayes for the other. The latter, on the resumption, soon gained a fourth, and Harper headed another. Wrexham were severely pressed, Hayes, Leatherbarrow, and Finnerhan all scoring. Result Northwich Victoria, 9 goals Wrexham, none. EVERTON V. CHESTER.—At Chester, on Saturday, in a heavy snowfall. In the first half Carter and Flemming scored one each for Chester, and Pinnel and Murray made the score level for the visitors. Before the interval, however, Everton were deprived of the services of Campbell and Pinnel, both being injured. In the second half Chester rushed a third, and Lewis shot a fourth for them. A fifth came from another rally and Ashton scored a sixth. Final- Chester, 6 goals Everton, 2 goals. WREXHAM Y. GOIITON VILLA.-Played on Wrexham Racecourse on Good Friday morning, before a good number of spectators. The first half was played in bright sunshine, but snow fell nearly all through the second portion of the game. Wrexham were 'rex l iani were the first to score, B. Lewis sending the ball through from a cross by Prichard. Pickford quickly equalised, and Armitt put on a second. Wrexham played up after these reverses, and J. Turner again placed the teams on a level footing. At half-time the score was two goals each. The visitors played with only ten men in the second half, as Armitt received a blow on the head just before the interval and had to retire. The game was even for some time and then McCarthy got past the home backs and shot a third goal. Wrexham played hard and J. Turner being fouled within the twelve yards limit the referee (Mr C. J. Hughes, Northwich) gave a penalty kick. This was taken by Lea and he sent the ball between the posts, equalising the score. Both teams now strove to gain the winning point, but when the whistle blew the score was unaltered. Hesult Wrexham three goals, Gorton Villa three goals.
THE LEAGUE. I There were six League games on Saturday. At Wolverhampton the Wolverhampton Wanderers and Bolton Wanderers played an exciting game, in which the Bolton team managed to claim the victory by two goals to one. Great attention was bestowed on the Aston Villa and Preston North End. match at Perry Bar, Birmingham, and there were ten thousand people on the ground. Aston Villa obtained two goals to none before the interval, and ultimately were success- ful by three goals to one. Biynley was the scene of the Derby County v. Burnley contest. Derby scored twice during the first period, and. after an even second half the result was favorable- to the County by four oals tQ two. The Suiic goals to. two. The Sunderland eleven gained a brilliant Success on their own ground against the Blackburn Rovers. An immense company was pre-. sent. The home side passed with great, finish,.and scored three goals to one during the first portion.. Subsequently they doubled their advantage, and won by six to one. This was Sunderland's last match at home, and their easy victory seemed particularly gratifying to the club's supporters. At Everton the home team were opposed by Notts County. Everton kicked two goals in each half of the game, and won by four to none. At Darwen the West Bromwich Albion and Darwen fixture furnished a close match, and the result was a draw of one all. Only three matches now remain, for. decision,, three games having been played on Monday.. At, Preston, Preston North End completed their pro- Sramme with a, victory by four goals to love over Darwen. Everton received a visit from the Bolton Wanderers at Anfield, the attendance reaching five figures.

WESTMINSTER ROVERS.—The match be- tween these teams, to decide who should hold the cup until the end of next season, was played on Wrexham Racecourse on Monday, before about 4,000 spectators. G. Jones kicked off for the Rovers, who at once got down. W. P. Jones kicked well, and then E. Davies headed outside. Chirk took the ball to the other eud,. and from a centre by James, Butler headed over.. Powell and Davies passed nicely, but a free kick awarded Chirk removed the danger. Egan aa G. Owen were conspicuous, C. Jones stepping in iast in time. A free kick ior the Rovers near goal was well placed, but nothing came of it. Wilding waa too good for W. Owen, and the Rovers were awarded a free kick in front of the Chirk goal, Wildipg took this, and plaoed the ball well. W. P. Jonoa headed out. The same player directly afterwards cleared » shot from Powell. Chirk thsn went to the other end. W. Owen crossed to Egan, and C. Jones just cleared. Egan returned, and James shot just behind. The Rovers came down, and Postle gave a corner, which came to nothing. Even play in niidfield followed, and then a free kick for the Rovers was returned by Mates. Wilding deprived Butler and shot in, Povey throwing out. Egan ran along the left and crossed to Butler, who got past the backs, and Williams just saved by running out and giving a corner, which was cleared. At the other end Povev had to kick out a long shot. A free kick fell to the Rovers in mid- field, Fisher sending the ball behind. Directly after- wards, from a corner for the Rovers, Mates headed out. Wilding immediately returned, and headed through the first goal for tlie Rovers. The game now became fast. Good passing was shown by the Chirk forwards, Egan finally shooting just over the bar. G. Samuels made a good run and centered, G. Jones shooting outside. At the other end James sent the ball through, but the point was disallowed. A corner for the Rovers was cleared, and Chirk took up the pressure at the opposite end. Williams saved a good shot from Butler. A corner for Chirk was got away, and a free kick for them near goal was not improved upon. Egan shot outside, and another corner for Chirk was cleared. Chirk were now pressing severely, James shot wide from a cross by Egan. Williams c leared a long shot from Mates, and then Egan shot oyer. At half-time the Rogers were leading by one goal to nil. On changing ends, Williams at once had to kick out. The Rovers rushed away and just failed to score. Then from a centre by Egan. G. Owen equalised the score. Two free kicks for the Rovers did not give them any great advantage, and then Williams saved well from Egan and W. Owen. The Rovers fought hard and gamed a corner, which was cleared. A free kick for the Rovers near the Chirk goal looked dangerous, but W. P. Jones cleared. Powell nearly scored. Postle kicked clear, and W. Owen made a good run. Butler shooting just outside. Chirk pressed but could not score. From a free kick the ball was sent well into goal, Williams clearing. Morris kicked across the mouth of goal, and Owen shot in, Williams granting a corner in defence. This was well placed, and after the play had been for some time in front of go:t!, James headed through, but was given off- si d e. go:). Chirk were frequently dangerous. G. Owen goal, Chirk were frequently dangerous. G. Owen shot outside, and then Williams had to throw away two shots in succession. Directly afterwards Mates sent in a long shot. Williams made a poor save and James at once put through the second point for Chirk amidst loud cheering. The Rovers played up well after this reverse and nearly scored, Povey sav- ing well. Then Chirk again took up the running, two corners for them not being turned to account. W. Owen shot outside the posts, and the Rovers then gained a corner, but before it could be taken the whistle blew for time, with the score standing- Chirk, two goals Westminster Rovers, one goal.

AN APPEAL. SIR,—Will you kindly allow me through the medium of your largely-circulated paper to appeal to the Welsh Football Association, and to football players and supporters of the game throughout North Wales and Shropshire, to do something for the benefit of an old player-Peter Griffiths, of Chirk—who is now unable to play owing to injuries received in matches ? I am sure everybody will agree with me that he thoroughly deserves a benefit. A match between Chirk and Welsh Internationals, or a good League club, at Chirk, would draw a bumper gate. "—I am, A'c., OUTSIDE LKIT.
THE PROPOSED WELSH LEAGUE. SIR,-Seeing from your last issue that endeavours are being made to re-organise the Welsh Football League, 1 am anxious that. if it is to be resuscitated, that it should be placed oil a arm basis. From what I have heard, I am afraid that the promoters are not sufficiently cautioas, and have already decided what clubs are to form the League. I would just like to mention that the late League officers were thoroughly competent men, and it would be well if those who are now wishing to form a league would seek their advice. A Welsh League can, of course, be managed as well as any other football league, but the Executive must have something more substantial than the -1 word of honor of the Welsh clubs, and the rules must be thoroughly Welsh, and not based upon the English rules as formerly. To include Flint, would be a sad mistake, as it is too far. The League could be managed in two sections, one for North and the other South Wales. North Wales to include Holywell, Flint, Rhyl, Colwyn Bay, Llandudno, Bangor, Carnarvon, and Portmadoc, or any club that may be selected, and the South Division to include Saltney, llrynibo, Westminster Rovers. Rhostyllen, Rhos, Ruabon, Druids, Gresford, Chirk, and Llangollen. The two best clubs in each division could play a match for the championship. These are mere suggestions, with a view of assisting the promoters and to warn them against injudicious proceedings. It must be noted specially that almost every league match was followed by a protest. The rules should be framed to effectively put a stop to this, or it will certainly cause a great amount of work and unpleasantness, and perhaps the disruption of the new Welsh League, Wishing the new League every success, I am etc., CVMRO O FON.
COEDPOETH MUSICAL FESTIVAL. I Universal regret was felt by all throughout Coed- poeth and surrounding districts on Monday, because of the unexpected and unreasonable severity of the weather. Snow fell to the depth of about two inches in the morning.. Notwithstanding this many had made a successful.effprt to attend at the Wesleyan chapel, though, as might have been expected, the number was not very large, subsequently, however, it swelled into a comfprtably seated house. For some inexplicable cause, the most valuable prize for the chief choral competition remained uncontested. This unfortunate incident has not occurred for several years, and the committee are to be congratulated upon the discrimination they have hitherto displayed in the selection of pieces so popular and attractive, from., a musical point of view, as to ensure an adequate competition.. Among those present were noticed:— Mrs T. Nicholls Roberts, Miss Owen Wrexham, Miss Roberts, London. Miss E. M. M. Humphreys, Tabor House, Miss G..Hughes. R.A.M., and Miss A. Jones, and Messrs J., Davies, Tynycoed, B. Harrison. Smelt, Jones, Liverpool, William Owen, Wrexham, R. Owen, Adwy, W. Joneg, Southsea, M. Roberts, Smelt, Jesse Roberts, H. J. Edwards, Joseph Jones, N. Price, J. Carrington, J. Rogers, Coedpoeth, James Hughes, Wrexham, J. Harrison, builder, Coedpoeth, c^'c, An- other great disappointment was in store for the audience.—their, honored neighbour and friend, the Right Hon.. G.. O. Morgan, M.P.—had promised to attend, but unavoidable circumstances prevented the fulfilment of that promise. While waiting for a few moments a hymn, "Wrthorsedd y Jehovah Mawr," was sang,. the audience to the Old Hundredth," Mr J. Jones,. Nant, leading, then the Rev. T. Jones Humphreys, Coedpoeth appeared, and said that it was with sincerel regret he informed them of the inability of Mr. Osborne Morgan to be present with them as president that afternoon. The right hon. gentleman, no doubt felt more sorrow for it than anyone else. He (the speaker) had received many letters from him relating to the engagement, and from these it was evidenUhat he had been anxious to be with them that day.. They all felt very proud of him, and should take much interest in his welfare, for he had most ably represented them in Parliament for a number of years. (Cheers.) In the letter he held was the much to be regretted information of a severe cold, which Mr Morgan had contracted recently, but it also contained the usual expression of goodwill towards th eir beloved institution in the form of a subscription of three guineas. (Applause.) In such an emergency they were compelled to seek a substitute, and he thought they had a very suitable one present,, who had always identified himself with religious, patriotic, and philanthropic undertakings. He referred to Mr Thomas Charles, Brymbo—(applause)—and begged to propose him as their president. Mr Joseph Jones, High-street, seconded, and amidst cheers Mr Charles took the chair. He was supported by the Rev. T. J. Humphreys. The conductor was the Rev, T. Njpholls Roberts, Brymbo; adjudicator, Mr J. H. Roberts, Mus. Bac., Cantab. (Pencerdd Gwynedd); artistes- Miss Gertrude lhughes, R.A.M., London.; Te.nory.dd, Infryn (Mr William Roberts), Bangor; Mr M. W. Humphreys, Garston; violin, Master Drinkwater, Wrexham; Rehoboth Male Voice Party, &-c. &c.- The President said that he felt he had been placed in an awkward position that afternoon.. They had come there to listen to a speech from Mr Osborne Morgan, ansl from that gentleman it. could, not W otherwise than excellent. The Coedpoeth Eisteddfod was considered by them aL very honorable institution, and he i,.Jt sorry to sea that it was not crowded. They had a varied and interesting programme, sufficivfit to attract a good house in support oi their time-hfittiored institution, and it w.as cojisotiisg to knavy that, under tito able superintendence of the Rejv; T. Jones-Hum»hreys—one of the most, successful xsinisters in the district—it would not be allowed to fall into insigniapance.—The conductov who per- formed his duties very efnciently and humorously, then commenced his task. Tcnorydd Infryn opened the entertainment by singing Hen fryniau fy Ngwlad" (-1 D. Jones). Following this was a baritone coanpetitiou in "Yr Ornest ("The Tourna- ment"), hv. W. Davies. Nine candidates had entered the lists* font at a. preliminary test in the Tabor-hil1, Schools* they were reduced to three, and of these Artliur (Mr T. A. Davies, Cefn Mawr), was adjudged to be the best. Miss E. Wright, Cefn, invested him with the prize. For the next toin eti- tion eleven had sent in their names, foux uf whom were heard at the Eisteddfod. The teak piece was a tenor aolo by Wilfrid Jones, entitled kk Y i Miss Jones, Nant, invested Mr Thomas Morris, Brymbo (Ap Gwilym), with the prize. For the next two competitive items on the programme no names were read-viz., the flute solo and male voice com- petition on "The He!ea,gured" (prize X3 10i). Four quartetts presented themselves for the singing at sight from sol-fa. Much amusement was caused by their blunders and embarrassment. The prize was won by the party represented by Mr J. Wright, Cefn, who was bedecked with his honors by Miss Roberts, Church-street, Coedpoeth. Of the numerous members of the local string band, only two were courageous enough to attempt a competition in the "Cavatina" (Raff) from the Violin Miscellany." The adjudicator said both had made a very creditable attempt, although much still remained tor them to learn, such as the tuning of their instruments and the production of full ;;nl perfect tones from them. He was glad to listen to them and felt that it would be justice to divide the prize. They were invested by Miss lionveii, Cefii Mawr. Names had been received for the soprano competition in A oes cof alll danaf fi" (Pencerdd Gwynedd), but when they were called no one responded. Y Morwyr" (D. Emlyn Evans), duct. was well at- tempted by four parties. Messrs. J. Wright and R. Morris, Cefn Mawr, were the winners, For the chief, choral comletitioll upon "Let us sing together (Dr. Parry I, confined to choirs numbering not less than sixtv, no names had been received. The prize offered was~ £ 20 and a. gold medal. During a short interval in the proceedings, the Rev. T. J. Humphreys pro- posed and Mr Jos. Jones seconded a vote of thanks to the Right Hon. G. Osborne Morgan. M.P., for his handsome subscription, and as a rider, that they wished him a speedy restoration to health and long life to serve his country, and this was passed with enthusiasm. A vote of thanks to the president was heartily accorded on the motion of the llev. T. J. Humphreys, seconded by Mr Win. Owen, Wrexham. Thereupon the afternoon meeting terminated at 4.15. THE EVENING CONCERT. I The concert was under the presidency of Mr Jno. Davies, Tynycoed. The room presented a most en- couraging and cheerful appearance. Many were standing for want of room. Amongst those present were Mr Jones. Garston Mr Arthur Williams, Bryn- teg; Mrs Humphreys, Tabor House; Miss Humphreys; Mrs T. Nicholls Roberts; Mrs Mathias and Mrs E. Hughes, Adwy; Miss Price and Miss Carrington, High-street; Miss Thomas, Talwrn Mrs J. Jones; Mrs Richards, High-street; Mr E. Humphreys, Church-street; Miss Jones, Ffrith; Messrs. W. and R. Owen, Wrexham; &c., &c. The proceedings were opened with a pianoforte solo, Tarantella in A tlat by Heller," by Mr Walter Williams, in his best style, The President, who was greeted with cheers, said lie felt very timid and incompetent for the duties connected with the post he then had the honor of filling, but should he prove inefficient, let them re- member that the gentleman to his left—the Rev. T. Jones Humphreys—was responsible for his presence there. He knew that they would all treat him with the consideration which a young chairman deserved. He was proud to see so many young men and women present that evening. They all had many leisure hours which they would do well to devote to useful and elevating pursuits. They would soon, he hoped, see the day of the eight hours, the disruption of the present Parliament, and the Grand Old Man once again at the helm. (Hear, hear.) How nice it was to see their young men and women as time was slip- ping out of their grasp utilising it to the best advan- tage, and also progressing in the tastes with their age. They remained children too long. (Applause.) Football received too much of their attention. Sir Henry Lawrence dying, wounded 011 the field of battle, said Write on my tombstone, Henry Lawrence did his best to do his duty." Let them also do their best to do their duty, putting by all pre- judice and sectarianism, and let all work together for the good of all. Another point he wished to remark would be directed chiefly to parents. They were rather inclined generally to have a consecrated room in their houses, and the younger members of their families were not allowed to intrude upon the sanctity of the place. If they only knew the evil this custom was working among their children he felt sure that they would act more discreetly. It was their duty to take their children into their confidence and allow them the privilege of the enjoyment of the sacred circle, and supply the longing of the young for recreation in a wise and elevating manner so that there would be less running after football and other deleterious enjoyments. (Loud applause.) The fol- lowing was the programme Song, Yr afonig," Mr Humphreys, Garston; song, The gift," Miss Gertrude Hughes, R.A.M. song, Gwlad y Delyn," Tenorydd Infryn part song, Cydgan y chwar- elwyr," Male Voice Party, under the able leadership of Mr R. E. Jones; song, "Bedd y Bugail," Tenorydd Infryn song. Sing sweet bird," Miss Gertrude Hughes, R.A.M. song, Y Niagara." Mr M. W. Humphreys. Interval. Song, Children's home," Gertrude Hughes song. Llythyr fy mam," Tenorydd Infryn duett, Hywel a Blodwen, Miss Hughes and Mr Humphreys part song, Cydgan y morwyr," Male Voice Party duett, Flow gentle Deva." Messrs. Humphreys and Moss song, Y Gwhadygarwr," Tenorydd Infryn song, Bid me GNi- I .L d y g ,ir-*?-r., 'Nf iss Gertrude Hughes solig, discourse," Miss Gertrude Hughes song, Thou art so near and yet so far," Miss Humphreys finale, Hen Wlad fy Nhadau." Any shortcomings in the afternoon meeting were excellently redeemed in this concert, Without exaggeration no musical performance held in the locality for several years could bear comparison with it. Each item was sustained with taste and vigor. All felt that the programme was much too short. The committee and its secretary—Mr D..J. Price, Coed- poeth—deserve the thanks of every one for their discriminate selection of performers. Mr Humphreys was vociferously encored for his first song, and gave with equal success Let me like a soldier fall." His tragic rendering of Y Niagara was very fine, and elicited an encore, when he gave Draw the sword, Scotland." The star of the evening was Miss Gertrude Hughes, who had appeared on the same platform some few months previously. She is endowed with a rich, dulcet voice and of such volume and expression as we have seldom listened to. She fairly brought "down the house" with. "Sing, sweet bird," in which she showed the finished style of her powers. After prolonged cheering she reappeared to sing 0 11a byddai'n haf o hyd (\V. Davies.) With no less merit, her effective rendering of Bid me discourse was encored, when she sang Killarney in response. Tenorydd Infryn outshone himself in "■Gwlad y delyn." fie possesses a tenor voice of con- siderable sweetness and power, and sings in a thoroughly Welsh style. Thp local choir of Male Voioes is by no means unworthy\of a passing tribute. Tenorydd Infryn sang the solos of Cydgan y chwarelwyr." Enthusiasm and grace characterised each: of their performances. Both duets, and especially "Flow Gently Deva," were effectively rendered, the voices harmonising beautifully. An encore of the latter was demanded and given. During a short interval the,, various votes of thanks were accorded, on the motion of the, following :-To the conductor, the Rev. T. Jones-Humphreys and Canrhawdfardd to the chairman, Messrs \V. Owen and T. Charles; to.. the, peffowners, the Revs. T. J. Humphreys and T. Nicholls Roberts. In responding Mr J. Davies said that he was a Welsh Welshman," and in perfect sympathy with all patriotic move- ments. He felt proud of such men as Mabon and Tom Ellis. (Cheers.) A subscription of iE2 2s was received by the treasurer from Mr Davies.
THE MURDER AND ATTEMPTED I SUICIPE NEAR OSWESTRY. STATEMENT BY THE PRISONER'S WTFE. I Richard Bromley, the Rorthywaen quarryman, who is now in the custody of,the police at the Oswestry Cottage Hospital, on the charge of murdering his youngest child, attempting to murder his two other children by cutting their throats, and then attempting his own life in the same way, is making such satis- factory progress towards recovery that it is expected he will be well enough to be brought up before the magistrates in^the^spu^^e. oi. a few days. Bromley's, wife. who was away from home when the tragical occurrence took place,.is better, but is still suffering from great nervous prostration caused by the shock. She has made. a. statement, in which she says that her husband was a. mgst kind and affectionate father, particularly to the child whose life he had taken, and that he never seemed so happy as when he was. in their company. He had, however, lately taken, to drinking, and at times had been very cruel to her. It was the drink, that bad ruined him. Whea; she went home on the Tuesday night before the murder she found he had-.burnt a lot of her clothes. It was quite untrue that. she had pledged any of his clothes, but when.she went to her mother's house she took some of his things, there for safety, as she waa afraid he might destroy them. She went to Oswastry on Thursday morpijjg on particular business, and she knew that as he. had been drinking he would, not go to work at all that day. She left him and the children comfortably in. bed. When she went downstairs he got up and shouted, Polly are you coming to bed ? She replie^ I have been to bed, and g?" up." He then exclaimed "Oh," and she thought he went to sleep again. She felt sure that she was not to be murdered, fjor when she was putting some coal on the fire she heard a voice telling her to get out of the house. aSiSQftB as she could. She felt sure it was the Lord that had sent her out of the way. She wished, she had been prevented returning home on the previou 'night fr.om her mother's house with the children, b,4 he forced, her to go, and he was very kind and loving to the children. He was so fond oi the baby that Je often said that if anything happened to it lie felt s#re he should die. She never thought for a moment that he would raise his hand against it.
