EXCITING* SOBNB IN BRYHFORD-STRBBT.—Between eleven and twelve o'olook on Tuesday morning an exciting incident ooourred in Brynford-street. Miss Morgan, of Ysceifiog Rectory, was driving into Holywell in a phaeton accompanied by her ooaohman, after descending Brynford Hill the shaft became loose and the horse took fright. Miss Morgan escaped without injury beyond shook. The driver was almost equally fortunate. Getting into Brynford-Btreet, the horse oontinued its headlong oareer, and by some means a young man named John Thomas Hughes, of Brynoelyn, employed as a carter at the St. Winefred's Brewery, was oaught and dragged some distance down the road. A little further down the street the phaeton collided. -wit} the projecting gable end of the houses opgpsjtp Mr Booley's shop, and was litar-1 sgiaske^'to atoms. Hughes was uncoDscioua wnen picked up and upon recovery could nnt explain how he got mixed up with the horse and phaeton. He only remembered seeing the horse descending the road at a fast pace and after that it was all a blank. Dr. K. M. Lloyd, Brynford House, attended to Hughes who suffered from slight concussion of the brain, and bad sustained a severe soalp wound and lacerated injuries to the face. Miss Morgan and the driver were attended by Dr. Williams, Castle Hill. The horse escaped injury. COUNTY COURT: Tu=wAy.-Before His Honour Sir Horatio Lloyd, judge, and the registrar, Mr H. A. Cope.

DEATH OF THE YEN. ABCHDEAOON HUGH JONES. We regret to record the death which took plaoe at Rhyl, on Wednesday, of the Ven. Archdeacon Hugh Jones, reotor of Llanrwst, at the advanced age of 81 years. Although over thirty years have lapsed since Archdeacon Jones olosed his 24 years' ministry as Vicar of Holy- well, his memory is still held in the town and distriot with the greatest respect, and many will mourn the loss of this venerable and honoured clergyman. Archdeacon Jones was the first incumbent of Bagillt, a living which he occupied for only a brief period, when he removed to Holywell. He was at one time a Fellow of Jesus College, Oxford, and was successively Honorary Oanon Residentiary, Chancellor, and eventually Archdeacon of St. Asaph. The deoeased clergyman married a daughter of the late Dean Bonnor, who with a numerous family, survives him.

Colonel Davies-Cooke, on retiring from oommand of the 2nd Volunteer Battalion Royal Welsh Fusiliers after twenty-four years' servioe as their commanding officer, wishes to express to the offioers, non-oom- missioned officers, and men who served under him, his grateful thanks for the general support which he has during that lengthened period received from all ranks—a support without which the regiment could never have attained its present high state of effioienoy and he desires in partioular to recognise the aid and assistanoe of the past and present staff. The regi- ment has been greatly favoured in having a suooession of most able and excellent adjutants, and the colonel commandant owes them a deep debt of gratitude for their constant aod valued co-operation. Colonel Davies-Ccoke takes the opportunity to congratulate the regiment on ita gradual growth during his twenty-four years of command from five to sixteen companies, and although this greatly-increased strength bai neoessitatel the division of the regiment into two battalions, he hopes that the oordial good feeling and "esprit de corps," which always existed when they were one and the same oorps, may loag remain and never be lost sight of. Colonel Davies-Cooke oongratulates the 2nd Voluntier Battalion Royal Welsh Fusiliers on the appointment of Lieutenant-Colonel Sheriff Roberts as his suooessor in oommand, and feels confident that all ranks will extend to him the same loyal obedience and support that they have hitterto given to their commanding offioer. Further, although he bids farewell to all ranks of the 2nd and 3rd Volunteer Battalions R.W.F., as commanding offioer, he is proud to aooept, and long hopes to hold, the appointment of honorary colonel of his old regiment, the 2nd Volucteer Battalion Royal Welsh Fusiliers, which her Majesty has conferred on him, and he hopes still to associate himself with them in every possible way. Lastly, Colonel Daviee-Cooke can assure all ranks that he will always look baok with pleasure and pride to the command he so long held, and wishes both battalions every success and Goi-speed in the future.—26th May, 1897. ORDER FROM THE NEW COMMANDER. On assuming command of the 2nd Volunteer Battalion Royal Welsh Fusiliers, Lieutanant-Col. Sheriff Roberts desires to place on reooi d the regret whioh is felt by every offioer, non-commissioned officer, and man in the battalion at losing the valuable services of Colonel Davies-Cooke, A.D.O., a loss which is irreparable. The high state of efficiency, the excellent discipline, aud the sound financial condition of the tattalion is solely due to the splendid energy, ability, and never-ceasing work of Colonel Davies-Cooke for the last twenty- four years and it is very gratifying to think that his very last order was to complete the equipment by ordering valises and leggings for the Flintshire Companies. On behalf of all ranks of the battalion Lieutenant-Colonel Roberts begs to assure him of their respeot, esteem, and gratitude; and if anything could lessen the sorrow at losing so ideal a com- manding officer, it is the pleasure and satisfaction felt by all at retaining his name at the head of the battalion as honorary colonel, which it is sincerely hoped he may long live to enjoy. Lieutenant- Colonel Roberts confidently rehes upon the co- operation and assistance of every officer, non- commissioned officer, and man in the regiment in maintaining the high standard of efficiency, discipline, and smartness in which Colonel Davies- Cooke has left the battalion.
