1 A SENSATIONAL AND UP. TO-DATE SERIAL OF ABSORBING INTEREST. For Heart or Conscience ? BY GEORGE GRIFFITH, Author i-)f NVoiiitti A.alris'. the World, "The World Masters," An Angel of the cl Revolution," The Justice of Revenge." Arc., &c. WilF Commence Publication In Our Columns on Saturday, September 30th. M In this his latest novel, Mr. George Griffith grapples with modern problems, and pour- trays with vividness and skill some of the most dramatic episodes for which a parallel can be found in this somewhat prosaic every- day existence of ours. That speculators, company promoters, and gamblers in stocks and shares appear to have their own code of morality, the author makes clear, as also the fact that they sometimes endeavour to procure a scapegrace for their own misdeeds. Such is the case in the indictment of Lord Overbury, a too-confiling nobleman, who thanks to the efforts of Kenneth Markham is unconditionally acquitted. This young- barrister, who will not accept a brief until he is convinced of the merits of the case, is a fine cbaractor-one of nature's noblemen. His father is ruined by the machinations of an unscrupulous syndicate of company-pro moters. Prostrated on his death-bed the old man dictates a will enacting that the whole of his private fortune should be distributed amongst the poor shareholders of his com- panies. Before he can append his signa- ture, however, he is called away. Never. thdess Kenneth (the act is characteristic of the man) seconded by his mother and sister decides that the unsigned will shall be given efiecfc to and the family honour vindicated even at the cost of impoverishment. This almost quixotically honest course of action, effectually baffles the cabal of shady financi- ers, who, not content with procuring the ruin of Markham, meditate designs on his priv- ate fortune. For this purpose Ashford, one of their number, has been compelled to forge certain underwriting policies in the name of the dead man. The chance meeting of Mrs Lilias Elsley and her former lover, Arthur Eversley, in the city, becomes,in the light of after events, fraught with much significance in its effect on the course of the narrative. His renew- ed infatuation for the young and charming widow is apparently reciprocated. So much so in fact that she agrees to nurse him back to health. A sinister light is thrown on her motives, however, by her methods of nurs- ing. Nor does she appear to realise the real enormity of her conduct until her slumber- ing moral faculties are roused by her newly- born passion for Kenneth Markham. Does the young lawyer fall a prey to the wiles of this fascinating Delilah, or does be remain true to his first brown haired and brown eyed sweetheart Mercia Reynold ? The re- sult of the contest between love and duty- heart and conscience, on Kenneth's part, we must leave the reader to gather from the author s story. In conclusion we may say that For Heart or Conscience" is a story on essentially modern lines, thrilling, dramatic and forceful, and is brought to a strong and felicitous conclusion.
READ For Heart or Conscience ? BY George Griffith, It will commence in our issue of September 30th.
Interesting Rhyl Wedding, j On Monday considerable interest was mani- fested in a wedding which was solemnised at the Clwyd Street C.M. Chapel, the contracting parties beiny Mr George Henry Owens, youngest son of Mra Owens, Providence House, Water Street, and of the late Mr Edward Owens, founder of one of the most important tirms in the town of Rhyl, and Miss Sarah Jessie Mills, Ethel Villa, Abbey Street, Rhyl, daughter of the late Mr Edward Mills, Denbigh. The chapel presented a festive appearance, the floral decorations being of a very effective character and there was a large congregation. The officiating minister was the Rev E Humphreys, Birkenhead (late of Rhyl) while Mr Bryan Warhurst presided at the organ. The bride was attired in a charming dress of silk crepe de chine, with a Brussels net veil surmounted by a wreath of orange blossom and white heather. She also wore 0 a gold curb bracelet and a diamond1 pendant, and carried a beautiful shower bouquet, Jthe gifts of the bridegroom. She was given away by Mr Wm. Edwards, Denbigh. The bridesmaid, Miss Annie E Owens, sister of the bridegroom, wore a dress of cream silk, with a white beaver hat trimmed with Valenciennes lace, also a pearl and diamond brooch and carried a choice bouquet, the gifts of the bridegroom. The duties of best man were discharged by Mr Stanley Hughes, Plas Madoc, Rhuddlan. The wedding was followed by a reception at the Palace Hotel, where upwards of tifty guests were entertained to luncheon. The festive board was adorned with a magnificent three-tier eake made by Mr Philip Thomas, Rhyl. In the afternoon the newly-married couple, who were the recipients of numerous presents and congratulatory messages, departed for Buxton, where the honeymoon is being spent. At the reception, which was given by Mrs Owens, a recherche luncheon was provicted, the menu being as follows :— Salmon Mayonaise. Roast Sirloin Beef. « Horseradish Sauce. Boned Turkey. Game l'ie. Fricandean of Veal. Roast Chickens. York Hams. Charlotte Russe. Castle Baskets. Damson Tart. Trirte. • Custard. Vanilla a la Cream. Jelly. Dessert. Coffee. Mrs Pratt afforded the guest; every satis- faction. The usual toasts followed. That of the bride and groom was proposed in a very able and kindly manner by the Rev E Humphreys, and responded to by the newly-made husband in good form, in spite of the natural nervousness caused by the novelty of his position. The health of the bridesmaid was proposed in a jovial speech by Mr Fred Wright, an old friend, now resident in London, and was suitably responded to by the best man. Mr Joseph Williams, in a very feeling speech, proposed the health of Mrs Owens, the bridegroom's mother, a toast received with acclammation, after being cordially seconded by Mr Wilders and it was suitably replied to by Mr Llewellyn < )wei>s on behalf of his mother. Mr Stanley Hughes proposed the health of, and a vote of thanks to, Mrs Pratt, manageress of the hotel, for her excellent catering. This was replied to by Mr Wilders on Mrs Pratt's behalf. An adjournment was then made to the drawing room, where an entertainment of music and singing was given. This was followed by afternoon tea, and afterwards by the departure amid showers of rice, confetti and old shoes, of the newly married pair on their honeymoon tour.

Holywell. The Pilgrims' Progress. I At Monday evening's monthly meeting of the Holywell Urban Council a report as to the in- dustries of Holywell was submitted and approved lor presentation to the Great Central Railway Company in support of the Flintshire petition to that Company to extend their system through the middle of the county. The report states that at a low estimate fully 30,000 persons per annum visit St Winefride's Well, and that by a proper and efficient system of railway com- munication that number would be doabled. The Council promised to give the scheme every ISUp- port in its power.

SELECTED HEADINGS. 1 A IIOUT TH mi r; MARKS.—" A tremendous amount bj,n written about thumb marks," said a r-i;.r.c:n, who has a liking for the bypaths or science. It is claimed, yon know, that the our ous nvin configuration of the ball of the thumb is novur the same in any two people, and that ic never puanges from birth to death. Th3 first statement is, of course, correct, as no human beiug in the wurld is exactly like any of hiu fellawa. But the assertion that iiib thumb marks never change througnout life, and would serve as a means of idbiitirication from the cradle to the grave is, to sav the ieast, a decided exaggeration. I took au Inuian ink impression of my OW3 thumb several years ago, and not long after I blistered both of them pretty severely while rowing. As usual the outer skin peeled oft, and it occurred to me one day to take a new impression and see whether the flesh surface was an exact facsimile of the old. I was astonished at the varia- tions, and all my preconceived ideas of the immut- ability of the muk were knocked on the head. It is true the changes were more in the nature of a distortion of the former patterns than a complete rearrangement of the lines, but they were so pro nounced that any value the mark may have had for identification purposes were entirely lost. This excited my interest, and I persuaded a few of uy friends to lend me their thumbs for experi- ments. I first took Indian ink impressions, and lien removed the top skin with a solution of irnica. The thin layer that came off was a mere dim-Hot nearly so thick as in my case-yet in jvery instance there were distinct and unmistak- able alterations in the lines. One man's second print was so changed that you would never have it with the first." PROVED BY A PENDULUM. An exceedingly iniiiisLting scientific experiment is that winch demonstrates the movement of the earth by the movement of a pendulum. It was carried out soma fifty years ago by a young astronomer in Rome. From the roof of the Pantheon (which he was permitted to use for the experiment) he suspended a long wire, at the end of which he iiung a heavy bill of metal. This ball was suspended half an inch above a circular table, arouud the edge of which ran a border of fiae sald. On the under side of the metal ball was a needle so adjusted as just to sJrape the sand without touch- ing the table. Then when the wire was perfectly motionless the pf orjulum was started, the needle making a line in the S.VLKI as ic travelled across, but at every stroke the iiue appeared in a new place. The floor was SOOQ seen to be turning at the rate of ono complete revolution every twenty- four hours. T!ia experiment causad the greatest interest and enthusiasm in scientific circles, and brought Foucauit, the experimenter, into con- sidert-'jle prominence. THK SUNK OF Ifenri Coupin Pow- mences some remarks on Tho bong of Birdii by referring to the large proportion of tuneful species met with among the birds of Europe, which he sots at 10 per cent whereas in the tropics it falls as low as one per thousand. The gorgeous birds of the tropics he compares to actresses without talent, who depend for success on the richness of their toilets. Suressis then laid on the fact that, in spite of its simplicity, bird-song cannot be imitated by any known musical iuatrmuenta. It is possible indeed, to reproduce the pitch and intensity of the notes, but not the timbre, which includes such a multitude of sounds as to defy imitation. 10- deed, the observations of M, F. Lescuyer have shown that although the notes of birds correspond to those of our musical scale, yet they also include a cumber of vibrations occupying the intervals bo- tween our notes, and iti.) this which renders imi- tation impossible. In most birds the duration of the song is very brief; in the thrush and the chaffinch it lasts only two or three seconds, in the blackcap from four to five ceconds, and from two to five minutes in the lark. The author then proceeds to analyse the sounds constituting the songs of birds, and to distinguish between their songs and their alarm-cries. SHIPS SPREAD THEM.—Many insects migrate from one quarter of the giobe to another by means of the vessels which ply between distant ports. Indeed, the spread of nearly all kinds of living creatures has ijeen dependent upen the ships of civilised nations. Not long ago a ship from ono of the tropical countries was followed by a flock of butterflies, which persistently circled round the rigging of the vessel until the shores had faded in the distance. Then the insects alighted on the masts and deck. A few disappeared in the night, and were destroyed in the water or reached shore in safety. Some of the others crawled away in the cabins and hold of the ship. After a. trip of 30 days the vessel reached its destination, and from their hiding-place in the ship a few of these butterflies emerged and flew ashore. Thus an en- tirely new species of butterfly was introduced into the country. This authentic instance of the mi- gration is but a single illustration of how some- times ships bring into the harbour desirable and undesirable immigrants whoso names are never entered on th8 books of the company. A GARDEN OF MILK.—The Milk Garden of Frankfort, recei ved for the children of that aristo- cratic city, is in iself one of the most democratic of places. Here rich people who wish to be re- lieved for a time of the presence of their children, send them, accompanied by their nurses. Here, also, poor people, who can neither afford to devote their own time to their children nor hire soparate nurses for them, may bring their little oues, cer- tain that from the garden nurses they will receive all the care and attention necessary to safety, health, and amusement. Private nurses of the rich people and public nurses of the working people are subject to a supervision suiihient to protect the children of all classes from cruelty and neglect. The only food furnished in the garden is milk, whose freshness and purity are assured, inasmuch as it is drunk warm from the mild-eyed cows which occupy stalls on one edge of the field. VERY KNOWING.—When that interesting bird, named from its cry thecornrake, is alarmed, it has the instinct to feign death. A gentleman in Portree had a cornrake brought to him by his dog to all appearance it was dead. As it iay on the ground he turned it over with his foot. Ho was convinced life was extinct. Standing by, however, some time in silence, ho suddenly saw it open one eye. He took it up, its head fell, and it appeared again totally dead. Ho then put it iuto his pocket, and before very long ha felt it all alive, and struggling to gat free. He took it oui of his pockec; it was lifeless as before. He then laid it on the ground, and retired to some distance. In about five minutes it warily raised it head, looked round, and made off at fud speed. I ACTOKS WHO STUTTER.—It would that the stage is not only the !>\at profession that would be ihosen by a person afflicted by stuttering, out that a stutterer would never dream of selecting that profession. Yet it is a fact that soma well-known ictors and singers labour under that disadvantage. The strangest thing about it is that the sad impedi- ment which is so painfully evident in private life, seems to vanish entirely when they are ou the boards. It is curious that appearance on the stage I or in the pulpit should have this b«neficial effect, or stutterers in other walks of life do not lose their impediment when at work, however enthusi- astic their love for their profession. TORTOISE-SHELL, as it comes to market from the West Indies, is coarse, dirty, and lustreless, and only the most skilful and patient manipulation makes it the rich and beautiful material that it jventuady becomes. A SCIENTIST aays that there is probably an earth- quake shock every half hour. Some of these shocks, of course, are very mild, a'ld only discerui- ole by the seismometer. THE largest serpent ever measured was a MdXi- ;an anaconda, which was found to be oTfs. in ength. AT the railway stations in Russia books are kept n which passengers can enter any complaint they jip.y wish to make.

J.ES. i.Rocr.u:. —He hid evidently im'/bed some- what freely, and, in addition was Hushed with victory, for he had been winning at the races. He wanted to stay in town another week, but his wife expected him, so he was in search of a type- writing office to send home a letter to serve as an apology for his non-appearanoe. "I; this date, ninety-six," he muttered to the typist." "1 have that." My dear wife." "Yes." "Very important, business will require my presence in Llandyssil for ,A few days "Let's see," in- terrupted the typist; "how do you spell I Lan- d;ssil'Lwo Fs or three "Spell it yourself.

A sTcRV is told of old Lord Selkirk in the days when symmetrical arrangement was considcrd the height of gardening. One day he found a boy shut up in the summer-house at the end of the terrace at St Mary's Isle, and was informed by his gardener that it was for stealing apples. 011 reaching the other end of the terraee, where there was another summer-house, Selkirk beheld the gardener's sou looking dolefully out of the window.

The Local Property Market. At the Westminster Hotel. Rhyl, on Tuesday, Messrs Churton, Elphick and Co., of Chester, otTered for sale the Towyn Tilery, which works (described last week in our columns) are within easy reach of Rhyl and Abergele. having a con- siderable frontage to the L. & N. W. Railway. In introducing the property the auctioneer said he believed there was an extremely valuable bed of clay at the tilery, suitable for a variety of purposes. There was a great demand for bricks, tiles and pipes in the district, and an excellent investment lay before any intending purchaser.—Bids were invited, but not one of the small company present was in a speculative mood, and the proceedings terminated withont an encouraging offer being made. Messrs Bromley, Jones and Co were the solicitors concerned. The same afternoon, at the Royal Hotel, Rhyl, Air Francis Geary held a sale of several building sites in the neighbourhood of the Marine Lake. In the course of a capital introductory speech Mr Geary said the property for disposal at present belonged to Mr J S Greenhalgh, a gentleman who had done a great deal for the development of Rhyl and was anxious to help further in the develop- ment of the west end. There were for disposal that day a series of the choicest building lots in the west end-he might venture to say the whole town. Vast strides had been made in that part of the town during the past few years, and it was becoming more and more popular as a residental quarter, and it was no mere auctioneer's bunkum when he described that locality as one of the most lovely spots in Rhyl. The sites he had to offer were situated on the banks of the Marine Lake and close to the Bowling Greens, and commanded magnificent and unequalled views stretching over four counties.—The enthusiasm of the company was not, however, equal to that of the auctioneer, and no change of ownership was publicly effected. Mr J Pierce Lewis acted as solicitor in the matter. Messrs Cunnah and Roberts, of Chester, met a numerous company at the Royal Victoria Hotel, Prestatyn, on Monday, when they submitted to public competition two commodious and well arranged villas-Brightholme and Holmleigh— situate on Hill Side, Prestatyn, together with a plot of building land (about :08() square yards) in the same neighbourhood. The piospects of the town having properly been set forth in a very glowing manner, bids were invited for the whole property in one lot, and after spirited competition Mr Robert Beck, Hoole Rd, Chester, was declared the purchaser [at Mr J Pierce Lewis, Rhyl, acted as solicitor for the vendors. Next Week. 4 IU Thursday next Messrs Wm Dew & Sou, Bangor, will offer for sale (as per advertisement) at the Westminster Hotel, Rhyl, upwards of iOU lots ct neutrally situated property and building r-ites in llhyl, amc.ngst which are South Villa, Elwy Street several cottages in West Kinmel Street and Ffynnongroew Road the block of bu-iness premises known as Wellington Chambers and Arcade; Nos. I to 5 Vaughan Terrace, off High Street; and í building sites forming at present part of the extensive estate lying between St John's Church and the railway, which it is proposed to open up with approaches from Wel- lington Road and Ffynnongroew Road. At the same sale five cottages at Wein Fechan, Ruthin, will also be brought under the hammer. Mr F J Gamlin is the solicitor aetiug.

Football. ™ Home of the Combination clubs were in a decidedly scoring mood on Saturday, and in the sevon matches played no fewer than 40 goals were obtained. Three games alone produced 29 of the points. The Rhyl team journeyed to Broughton, and despite the execrable weather- rain practically all the time-they gave the homesters a very stiff fight. Such were the con- ditions under which the game was played that description or criticism at any length would be out of place. Suffice it to say that Rhyl experi- enced hard lines in not making a win instead of a draw. A goal apiece was the score. This was the only drawn game. Spectators at the Oswestry-ISantwich match had plenty of value for their money, for they saw 11 goals scored, eight of them being obtained in the second half. The visitors, how- ever, secured six against five, one of their points resulting from a penalty kick. -¡, The new Glossop Reserve team made their debut before their own supportors, and de- feated Tranmere Rovers by two goals to none. The first goal came twenty-three minutes after the resumption, Irvine beating Robertson with a good shot. The visitors tried hard to equalise, but just before the close Jrvine was brought down within the penalty area, and from the ensuing kick the same player again scored. Whitehead, the home centre-half, played a good game. This makes Glossop'.s second victory. A good game should be in store for those who patronise the Rhyl v. Glossop match on the Grange Road Ground to-morrow. < ither Combination results (iliester f), Chirk 0. "Whitchurch 8, Middlcwich 1. Crowe Alexandra 3, Birkenhead 0. Druids 4, Port Sunlight 1. 1f' -z.

Holywell. Flintshire Rates. At a meeting ol th« Holywell Board of Guard ians the Cleik (Mr. P HarJiDg Roberts) submitt" ed the estimate of Union expenditure for the ensuing half year. The estimated expenditure on common fund account was S8,318 1 Is. 2d., and the receipts were estimated at E3,301, leaving £ 5,017. Us to be collected from the rates, as compared with £ 5,164 last year. With regard to the county rate, he had ascertained that for the ensuing half year the following rates would pro- bably be rcade —For general connty purposes 5d., higher education Id, elementary education 4d. This was Id. more than last year, and the amount required from this Union for the half year would be £ fi,946, as against 4:6,251 in the previous half year. In March. 1903, the jamount of the Flintshire County Council rate was £ 2,083.—It was pointed out that though the Guardians had L to collect this county rate, they had no control over it.—Mr. Humphreys: It is not surprising it is so high when we see the extravagance of the Education Committee. There will be a revolu- tion at last.-The Board accepted the estimate.

Wales as a lield for history, with her handmaid sciences of race, language, law. and reiigion, is immortal; Wales as a group of twelve ehires was transitory; the dates of its rise and of its fall are certain. The year 1:;3;; found historical Wales not yet in the lualm of England, under an English king's overlordship, which was weak, but also under many home rules which were strong, its people locally oppressed, its societv not advancing, its "ommerco not increasing. In that year, by the Act 27 Henry VIII., c. 2i, historical Wales was politically united as a whole to England, its Marches were sorted into shires, it was drawn within the pale of English law, and it was placed under English forms of administration. Thenceforth England and Wales grew on togetner, began to forget mutual jealousy, to share material prosperity, to show to every succeeding age union passing into unity. There was an episode in this history temporarily aflecting its form. The Union Act of 1535 found in historical Wales eight old shires, and created out of the Marches five new ones. It extended the judicature of England to one shire, a new one. It retained the local judicatures of the eight old sliires, and created the like in the remaining four new ones. In 1548 the Act 34 and 35 Henry c. 26, replaced those twelve local jadicataies by a single one for a twelve-shire province which it named "Wales." In 1830 the Act 2 George IV. and 1 William IV. swept away that single local judicature, and completely extended the judicature of England to historical Wales. Since 1830 there has been i no more reason for grouping certain shires fas WAles" than for grouping other shires as East Anglia j or Mercia and there has been a russon for ceasing to group them so, namely, the clearance of a mist from the history of the old Welsh border. Yet the twelve shires are still grouped apart in books and maps, in official documents, and Acts of Parliament. Is there now any tie between Pembroke and Flint which is not between Flint and Chester" Does Glamorgan now feel the joys and griefs of Anglesey, but not those of Monmouth ? Do the separate table of twelve shires in books and the line drawn along the eastern edge of their group in maps represent any useful thought or recall any stirring memory? Do they not rather hide a true nationality now belonging to history alone, and keep apart those whom all wise statesmen during three centuries and a half have striven to unite ? Already the Separatist law-maker is abroad. He has opened a breach with a twelve-shire law of liqunr. He burns to widen the breach with twelve-shire laws of tithe, of rent, of land, of the Church, of Home Rule. The Unionists of 1535, who completed the number of the shires of England and Wales to fifty-two, wisely left them unclasied.
