THE DEVELOPMENT OF PRESTATYN. A discussion took place last Saturday between several of our village fathers and the son of the principal Prestatyn landowner, which discussion, it is hoped, will result in assisting to a large extent the future develop- ment of the place. Advantage was taken of the presence amongst us of Mr H. D. McLaren, M.P., to talk over several matters which have of late been the subject of correspondence between Lady McLaren and the Prestatyn Council. These include the question of the control of the foreshore, and the agreement regarding the re-opening of Bodnant Avenue. Other matters affecting the welfare of the town came up for discussion, amongst these being the desirability of widening Bastion Road, the improvement of the awkward and dangerous corner at Penisa'rdre, and several other ques- tions. Mr McLaren agreed on the whole with the views expressed by the Councillors who were present at the interview, avowing his willing- ness to widen the portion of Bastion Road which is under the McLaren ownership. The approach to the railway bridge in High Street was also a matter which Mr McLaren thought should be looked into with a view to something being done, and it is possible that a strip of land may be presented to the town at this point. Should these two improve- ments be carried out, Lady McLaren will earn the grateful thanks of all residents who have the progress of the town at heart. Regarding the foreshore question, Mr McLaren wished to know the motives actuating the Council in desiring to secure the control. He was somewhat suspicious that the principal object was a sordid one— that the local authority had an eye to monetary gain in seeking to secure a lease of the shore. One of the councillors, however, hastened to assure Mr McLaren that such calculations had never entered the mind of the local authority. Public control is desir- able for several reasons, one of the principal being to enable the Council to frame proper rules for the regulation of bathing, so that there may be no repetition of the Coroner's remarks on a recent occasion. No definite conclusion was arrived at respecting Bodnant Avenue.
The Season The attendance at the churches last Sunday, and the length of the list of visitors published this week, evidences little dimi- nution in the number of those spending their holidays here. September is to some the most enjoyable month of the year.
A Week Ahead. The readers of the Prestatyn Weekly were the only ones last week to receive the report of the Local Government Board Inspector on the sanitary condition of the district. All the other local newspapers along the coast are publishing it a week later. Surely this is a sign of the up-to-dateness of this locality.
The Golf Club. The first round for the cup kindly presented by Mr W. Bulcock is to be played on the third Saturday in September. Match play rules will be observed, and the competition is to be confined to members of 16 handicap and over. From all accounts there is likely to be a keen competition.
Town Advertising. Mr Aiston's Pierrots, who are giving an entertainment at the Town Hall on Monday week,in aid of a fund for advertising Prestatyn, are to have the assistance of some members of Messrs Adeler and Sutton's well-known Pierrots from Rhyl, and others, so that a very good programme may be expected. 11
A Judge of Flowers. Our townsman, Mr J. E. Kelly, Sefton Fruit Stores, was one of the judges at the Whitford-Mostyn Horticultural Show on Wednesday. It is evident that Mr Kelly discharges these duties very satisfactorily, for he has filled this post for several years.
End of the Holidays. The public elementary schools of Prestatyn will re-open next week The Natonal School on Monday, and the Council School on Tuesday.
Accident. On Friday noon an accident occurred in front of the Royal Victoria Hotel. It seems that a motor C:II' was passing the hackney carriage stand when a horse attached to a landau (the property of Mr Daniel Brooks) took fright and bolted across the road, the carriage colliding with the obstruction placed by the side of the footpath leading to Cement Road, the front portion of the vehicle coming to grief, and the axle breaking in two. It was fortunate that no one was in the carriage at the time, or a serious accident would probably have resulted.
MR HARRISON HILL S VISIT MrlHarrison Hill, who visits Prestatyn next Wednesday is one of the most talented enter- tainers of the day, and is in great demand all over the country. He is absolutely original, and turns his originality to a good account. With quip and jest and merry music, he never fails to gain the appreciation of his audience. Mr Harrison Hill's versatility is unbounded, and it is not surprising to know that he is a general favourite From the smart society audience up West to the roughest Coster-men down East they all love Harrison Hill. His almost magical manipulation of the key- board attracts one irrisistably. As an old Lancashire farmer once remarked, He fair makes yon thing speak!" Mr Harrison Hill is on especially good terms with the nurses and doctors in the great London hospitals, where he is often to be found entertaining the inmates. One of the latter, himself somewhat of a wag, paid the following little tribute to the genial humourist: Mr Hill's humour is sparkling and effervescent, tonic in effect, wholesome and nutritious. Taken in large doses it is an infallible remedy for that tired feeling." Mr Harrison Hill will travel from Man- chester on September 2nd, where on the previous evening he will be the guest of the Institute of Journalists. During his visit to Prestatyn Mr Hill will be the guest of Mr and Mrs Partington at Deva Lodge.
LAWN TENNIS MATCH. On Wednesday afternoon (writes a corres- pondent), the Gronant Road Club set out for Rhyl, thirsting for blood, determined to avenge the defeat inflicted by the Rhyl Club when they visited Prestatyn and. as the score shows, right nobly did they achieve their object. The games were played in the pretty grounds of the Rhyl Club in the Botanical Gardens, and daring the afternoon the visitors were regaled with an excellent tea. The evening finished up with a few friendly games, and the Prestatynites returned well pleased with themselves and their visit. The scoring was as follows MIXED DOUBLES — Miss Selkirk and Mr Marshall (Prestatyn) beat Miss Vernon and Mr T. B. Browne (Rhyl), 6-2, 6-1. Mrs Currie and Mr Purnel 1 (Prestatyn) beat Mrs Vaughan and Mr Wright (Rhyl), 6-0, 6-3. Msr and Mr Evans (Prestatyn) beat Miss Cummins and Mr Jones (Rhyl), 6-1, 6-3. Miss Banks and Mr Ashworth (Prestatyn) beat Mr & Mrs Evans (Rhyl), 2-6, 6-8, 6-1. LADIES DOUBLES —Mrs Vaughan and Miss Vernon (Rhyl) beat Miss Selkirk and Mrs Currie (Prestatyn). 6-4, 6-1. Mrs Evans and Miss Clements (Prestatyn) beat Miss Cuininings and Mrs Evans (Rhyl), 6-3, 6-0. GENTS DOUBLES —Mr T. B. Browne and Mr Jones (Rhyl) beat Mr Marshall and Mr Parnell (Prestatyn), ü-o, 6-3. Mr Ashworth and Mr Evans (Prestatyn) beat Mr Evans and Mr Wright (Rhyl), 7-5, 6-8. Result—Prestatyn Sets 12, Games 86. Rhyl: Sets 5, Games 55.
Christ Church. There will again be a service of song next 0 Sunday evening at 8-15 p.m., when Miss Jones (Aberystwyth), Miss Bond (Colwyn Bay), Miss Tillie Welch (Liverpool), and others will take part.
The Bazaar. The result of this two-days event held last Thursday and Friday in connection with Christ Church is highly satisfactory, and all those who worked so assiduously are to be complimented upon the achievement of their object. A little over CI50 were needed to free the new aisle from debt, and of this sum over t147 were taken on the two days. Since then several donations have come to hand, so that it can be taken for granted that the necessary sum has been raised. Since the above was written, details of the result have come to hand. The takings are as follows First Day JE79 12 11 Second Day. 48 19 4 SLibsciptions 21 19 0 Tickets Sold 10 17 6 Balance in hand from last year • 0 14 9 mH2 3 6 It is estimated that the above amount will be sufficient both to clear off the £ 150 debt and to meet all expenses connected with the bazaar. A service of thanksgiving for the I extinction of the debt will be held next Sunday evening.
FUNERAL OF MR. BRADLEY. On Monday afternoon the remains of Mr Anthony Bradley, of "Terfyn." were interred in Prestatyn Churchyard, the funeral being exceptionally largely attended. Among those present was a considerable gathering of employees of the late gentleman's firm, together with representatives of the Traveller's Lodge of Freemasons, the Grosvenor Chapter of Mark Masons (of both of which Mr Bradley was a member), and several of the local Freemasons, who together with representatives of the Prestatyn Constitutional Club lined the path from the gate to the Church as the remains were being borne from the hearse. Mr Banks (Mr Bradley's partner) was among the principal mourners, and the funeral was also attended by many representatives of various organizations in Chester of which Mr Bradley was a supporter, and several of the principal residents and tradesmen in Prestatyn in addition to members of the Urban Council. The officiating clergy were the Rev. O. J. Davies, M.A. (Vicar), and Rev. A. Gray Jones, B.A., and the seivice in church- which was attended by a large number of the general public.-was a very impressive one. "Rock of Ages" was sung as an opening hymn, and at the close the hymn Peace, perfect peace was sung, Dr Keighley playing the Dead March at the end of this portion of the service. The grave had been lined with flowers and ferns by Mr J E Kelly, and after the remains had been lowered, the Freemasons (in accord- ance with their.custom, dropped on to the coffin an acacia leaf which each had been wearing. Some magnificent wreaths were sent, making a total of 46. They were from the following Mrs Bradley, widow, Mr and Mrs Sidney Clarke, Miss Ellis. Mr Henry and,the Misses Musker, Mr and Mrs Arthur Birch, Mrs Melladew, Mr and Mrs Banks, Connie, Dorothy, Trixie, and Dick. Mrs Reece, Mrs Clark (senior) and family, Mr and Mrs Catchpole, Mr and Mrs Sidney Peek and Ronnie, Miss Grice, Mr Frank Jewell. Mr C H Davies, The Managers of the Firm, The Office Staff, The Assis- tants and Juniors of the Firm, The Servants at Terfyn, Mr and Mrs Brockwell, Sybil Brockwell, The Grosvenor Rowing Club, Mr and Mrs T. L. Wilkin- son, Miss Radchffe and Mr J. T. Dawes, Prestatyn Constitutional Club. Mr and Mrs Ben Gleadhill, Mrs and The Misses Wilkinson. The Traveller's Lodge, The Companions of the Grosvenor Chapter, Mr and Mrs D P Morgan, Dr Tudor Griffiths, Mr and Mrs J S. Winstanley, Mr and Mrs G. S. Warraker, Mr and Mrs J. E. Sutton and Family, Mr and Mrs Will Roberts, Herbert and Muriel, Mr Henry G. Hope. Mr and Mrs R. C. Davies, Mr and Mrs Isaac Wil- liams and Family, Mr and Mrs L. J. Hunt, Mrs Chapman and Family, Chester Bowling Green, Mr Joseph Bostock, Mr and Mrs Marrs, Mr and Mrs W. T. Webster, Prestatyn Golf Club, and Mr J. Coleman. The late Mr Bradley belonged to a Lancashire family, and about 25 years ago he succeeded to the clothiers business commenced by his brother some years previously. The business gradually extended, and now the firm has branches in many parts of Wales, Lancashire, Yorkshire, and the Midlands, and this year the century of branches was passed, making it the second largest of its kind in the country. In 1893 Mr Bradley entered into partnership with Mr S. Clarke, who is now in China, and Mr J. Banks, Prestatyn, and from that time he himself took no active part in the management of the business. Mr Clarke left the business 18 months ago, and Mr Banks is now the sole surviving partner. Mr Bradley was fond of athletics and sport generally, and was a very popular member of several organizations in Chester, as well as a good supporter of the Prestatyn Golf Club, and had he lived he intended to start a bow- ling club here. He leaves a widow, but no family.
Cricket. The Prestatyn team visited Rhuddian last Saturday, and had to meet an exceptionally strong team. Notwithstanding that the visitors were without some of their most prominent players (including the brothers Linnell), they played a good game. Neither side made a high score, Prestatyn being dis- missed for 34, while the homesters made 51 for 9 wickets, the game having to be aban- doned owing to rain. S. Edwards made 12 for Prestatyn, and Messrs Woodward and Cain were in good bowling form, the several county men who played for Rhuddian being quite unable to run up the score. To-day (Saturday) Northop team is to visit Prestatyn.
The Service of Song held at Christ Church on Sunday evening was attended by a very large congregation, the church being full to overflowing. A pro- gramme of sacred music was rendered, and the artistes were spoken of in terms of high praise. Miss M. Pascall played the organ with her usual ability, and solos were most acceptably rendered by Miss Gaynor Roberts, Miss May Griffith, and Mr Atcherley Hebson, L.H.A.M., the latter also playing some of the organ accompaniments.
Historical Guide. The first edition of this interesting guide to Prestatyn is now completely sold out.
