THE DIOCESAN CHURCH CALEN- DAR, 1899.—The twenty-second issue of this invaluable work of reference has been sent by Messrs Nixon and Jarvis, Bangor, and in every respect will be found to possess all the admirable features of its predecessors, as •.veil a-s a proportion of new acceptable mat- ter concerning education., churchwardens, rating, &c., and the various church organi- sations and societies at home and abroad.

Thomas, rector of Trawsfynydd, in his editorial preface, to the enforced re- tirement through ill-health cf Bishop Lloyd, and the wish expressed that he may yet re- gain health and strength.

[ i Misers' Sad End. STARVING WITH £1200. The death under shocking circumstances of a brother aad sister is reported from An- glesey. The deceased were elderly people, living together in a small holding. On Thursday week the sister died, and persons who visited the house at the time found that all she lay upon was a bundle of filthy frags. Two days afterwards her 1/rother was found dead in the stable, the cause of death evidently being neglect verging on starvation. In the hqjise a sum of R200 was found hlen in a jug, and it afterwards appeared that the wretched couple had also banking account amounting to RIOOO.
The National Memorial to Mr T. E. Ellis. MEETING AT BANGOR. At the Penrhyn Hall, Bangor, on Tues- day night, a public meeting, convened on re- quisition by the Mayor (Alderman J. E. Ro- berts) was held to consider the question of a national memorial to the late Mr T. E. Ellis. The Mayor presided, and was supr norted on the ulatform by Principal Reichel, University College of North Wales; the Rev T. J. Wheldon, M.A., Professor J. E. Lloyd, M.A., Professor Arnold, Aldermen Henry Lewis and H. 04ey Edwards; Councillors David Owen, W. A. Foster, T. J. Williams, E. O. Pryce, Messrs Pentir Williams, J. Griffith, Bee Hive, W-. A. Downes, David Williams, Watkin Jones, W. O. Williams, and others. t The Mayor said he regretted the small attendance, which he accounted for by the smallness of the poster advertising the meet- ing, .and to the state of the weather. He was, however, gladl to be able to say that the movement had been warmly taken up as shown by the signatures to the requisition, which included the names of many of the most influential men of all parties and de- nominations in the town. In view of the small atendance, his Worship suggested that the meeting should form itself into a com- mittee and arrange for the systematic can- vassing of the town tor subscriptions. I Professor Lewis Jones moved a resolution welcoming the proposal to raise a national memorial to the late Mr T. E. Ellis, M.P., and pledging the meeting to clio all in its power to further the movement. He ex- plained that the movement in Bangor was initiated in connection with the Liberal Club, but it was felt that it should be of a non-political nature, and it was soon found that both parties were warmly in favour of it. 1 Alderman Dr Grey Edwards seconded the motion with pleasure and pride as a Welsh- man (applause). No one impressed him more with his broad-mindedness and fairness than I had Mr Ellis. Wales would be wanting in respect to one of her greatest sons if she failed to raise a, national memorial in honour to Mr Ellis. Principal Reichel, in supporting the reso- lution, said he was not surprised at the smallness of the meeting, for he himself, though he had looked keenly, failed to dis- cover a single poster announcing the meet- ing. He hoped, however, the meeting would be such as to place Ba.ngpr in its proper place in honouring a very remarkable man, whose interests first and foremost were na- tional and not sectional (hear, hear). There was no part of Wales which had not profited from Mr Ellis's personal interest in its wel- fare. He expressed the opinion, pace the observations of the chairman, that a statue I would not be an inappropriate memorial to Mr Ellis, to which a part of the fund at least might be dlevotedl. He (Mr Riechel) had felt ever since Mr Ellis's death as if a I' great but quiet force had, been removed from their midst, and he doubted if any of his contemporaries would ever see his like. The Rev T. J. Wheldon supported the re- solution, and said Tom Ellis represented Wales in a sense which some who used more violent language did not. Other gentlemen spoke in support of the resolution, which was carried with enthus- iasm, after which a local committee was ap- pointed, with the Mayor as chairman, Mr W. A. Foster, treasurer; and Professor Lewis Jones and Mr A. C. Downs as hon. secretaries. I The Mayor read a letter from Colonel Marshall, chairman- of the Bangor Conserva- tive Association, regretting his inability to attend the meeting, with the object of which he thoroughly sympathised, as he considered that Mr Ellis, during his Parliamentary career, used his utmost endeavours in fur- thering the interests and promoting the wel- fare of his native country. Councillor David Williams also wrote expressing his regret at being unable to attend.
Earl Carrington and land Reform The London correspondent of the "Man- chester Guardian" says: "Now that the weighty pronouncements made on Saturday at the dinner given by Mr Alfred Thomas to the Welsh members are being made public, as it appears by consent, it may not be out of place to mention that Earl Carrington, in an extremely sympathetic speech dealing with the question of land reform in Wales, expressed his willingness, if that course com- mended itself to the Welsh Liberal Party,to bring in a bill in the House of Lords embody- ing some of the proposals recommended in the report of the Welsh Land Commission- JIts. ft
ç¡ Assault In a Railway Carriage At the Llanrwst Police Court, on Monday, before. Colonel Johnson and other magis- trates, a Festiniog man named John Ro- berts was charged with a violent assault upon John Owen Thomas, accountant, of Watling street, Llanrwst, in a railway car- riage on Monday night. It appeared that the complainant and Mrs Thomas travelled from Llandudno in a carriage, among the occupants of which was the prisoner. At Glan Conway, several passengers alighted, the only persons-remaining in the compart- ment being the parties niamedi. Shortly after the train started the accused was said to have attacked Mr Thomas furiously with the butt end of his umbrella. Mrs Thomas was alarmed, and screamed loudly. The as- sailant continuted to make violent efforts to assault the prosecutor, who had to shield his wife and to prevent her from throwing herself out of the train. This went on till the train drew up at Talycafn Station, where Mr and Mrs Thomas made complaints to the officials. In the excitement the accused went to another carriage. The defence of Mr Jones Morris, who appeared for the de- fendant, was that Roberts had met with a serious accident some time ago at the quar- ries, and once he indulged in alcohol he be- came almost irresponsible for his actions. The bench imposed a fintf of R5, including costs. The bench severely oommented upon the fact that the railway company had not taken up the prosecution; but it was stated that the company had no time.
) HOLYHEAD SUPPOSED ROBBERY IN THE MAR- KET.—On Saturday, the servant of Mrs Jones, Brixton Mount, went to one of the banks to cash a cheque, and on leaving she proceeded to the Market place, having pre- viously placed the money in a small satchel in a basket which she carried on her arm. Subsequently she found that the bag and jE20 were missing. The police were inform- I ed of the matter, and they instituted in- quiries, but no arrest has as yet been made. DEATH OF A WELL-KNOWN RESI- j DENT.—We regret to announce the death of Mr Owen Jones, Llaingoch, after a brief illness at the advanced age of 79 years. The deceased had spent many years abroad, but had resided at Llaingoch for a long period. The remains were interred on Saturday at Maeshyfryd cemetery, Mr Robert Roberts, Cybi place being the undertaker. The Rev R. Eames Williams was the officiating min- ister. ENGLISH WESLEYANISM.—On Sun- day at the English vv esleyan Chapel, special services were conducted by.Misses Lillie Cook and Fisher, Liverpool district evangelists, who paid a return visit to the neighbourhood. On Monday evening a meeting was held in the same place, when the higher Christ life was the subject spoken upon by the evangelists and others. URBAN DISTRICT COUNCIL. A meeting: of the above was held on Tuesday, Mr Joseph Hall presiding. Mr J. Roberts, chairman of the Finance Committee, report- ed that the expenditure during the past month amounted to L555 14s 5d, and that th« amount collected was L539 4s 2d, which included the payment of a rate bythe Lon- don and North Western Railway Company. The unpaid rates amounted to £ 300.—Mr W. D. Jones, on behalf of the Road and Lighting Committee, reported that the com- mittee had met and decided to have the watering cart repaired at an outlay of be- tween -23 and 24. This received the ap- proval of the Council. They also recom- mended the buying of a new water cart. This matter was deferred. The town lamps were reported to be in a most unsatisfactory con- dition, over one half of them requiring to be repaired. The buying of a street sweeper was deferred, as the cost seemed large, and doubt was entertained as to whether it would answer in a town like Holyhead. A lamp has been fixed on the Marine square, and the Chairman thought it would answer very well. —The Building Committee reported that a new drain should be made in Thomas street at a cost of about £ 40.—Mr David Williams reported that the committee visited the pre- mises of Mr Ferrand and found that they were in a very bad conditioni on account of other drains being connected with his.—Mr Ferrand appeared before the Council and cl.aim:ed ,£5 for damages sustained. It was agreed to repair the drains, and remove the evil complained of; but the claim for com- pensation was not admitted. Mr Ferrand threatened legal proceedings unless the Council allowed the amount claimed.—Mr Slatter moved the adoption of the model bye-laws of the Local Government Board.— This was seconded by Mr W. D. Jones, and it was arranged1 that the committee who had this question on hand should meet at once to complete their work.
-l:J\ .1r'¿-¡", )J; ME4: MILD MEDIUM IN IN Injsr&s&L 7 I S6 GOLD AIEDAL "WHAT A DELICIOUS FRUITY ODOUR I This is the remark made by a lady when visiting one of her friends. The hostess was engaged in making jellies, and she replied, Yes I bad just been thinking the same, for the smell of fresh ripe fruit, as I stirred the blocks of jelly in a basin with hot water until it dissolved, has so given me an earnest desire to taste the jellies myself when set." The visitor at once tendered a modest request to be allowed b share the coming meal. which was acceded to, and the guest was further informed, in response to her inquiry, that the jellies were Cbivers' Gold Melal Jellies. Such remarks as the foregoing, are of constant occurrence in households where Chivers' JellitiB are placed upon the table. The delicious,. delicate, ripe-fruit taste and odour of Chivers' Jellies claim the attention of the most unobservant. The reason for this great attractiveness is that rhe manufacturers are them- selves large fruit growers and contractors for fresh fruit over a large local area. The jellies are flavoured with the delicious juices of freshly-gathered raspberries and straw- berries. or, as in the case of orange and lemon, the juices are expressed from the best ripe >mported fruit. Chivers' Jams and Jellies are prepared in silver-lined pans, aad handled by silver-lined ladles, so that no possible contairitiation or impurity can detract from the natural acid and stimulating flavour of the fruits employed. Chivers" Gold Medal Jell es are not merely a delicious luxury: they are so nutritious, wholesome, and digestible as to warrant their inclusion as a regular item in the domestic dietary. It is very rare indeed that an article eomes to the consumer with such hall-raarks of delicacy, flavour, purity of ujaterial, and cleanliies of manufacture as are possessed by Cbiver' t-iold Medal Jellies.
