ST. ABAPR. The Lord Lieutenant of Flintshire has placed Dr. Davies of St. Asaph on the Commission of the peace for Flintshire. AOOIIMVTS To Two Craca"On Thursday, the members of the Denbigh Cyoling Olub were having a ran, and whilst descending the steep hill at Rhuallt, Mrs Buller, one of the party, lost control of her maohine and was thrown violently to the ground. The unfortunate lady sustained dreadful injuries to her head, a wound on her face some inohes in length having to be etitohed. She was afterwards conveyed to Denbigh in an unconscious condition. Mrs Bailer is now progressing eatii- factortly.-As Mr W. M'Davies, of Llanynys Rectory, was riding past the Kinmel Wall, near St. Asapb, accompanying his brother, he was thrown off his machine, and fraotared one of his ankles. After medical attention he was conveyed home i's a carriage.
V INSIDE AND OUTSIDE. It It the fellow who stands inside the Louse aud looks out through the window that most enjoys the tlrim. How jolly to see the passers-by straggling against the wind or seudding before it, their coat collars up to their ears, their hats jammed down on their heads, slapping and slashing over the flooded pavements, soaked to the skin, maybe, oursing the weather with what breath they may have left, as they pelt and writhe along the road. Great fun, I say, this is for the man who looks out threngh the window. Not bis are the wet clothes olinging like oerements," as poor Tom Hood said about the girl who had ended her sorrows, as so many do, in the Thames. Not his the able-bodied chance of catcLing a bad cold and getting floored with rheu. matism or pneumoLi'. Oh, no; he is en the right aide of the brick wall, snug as a bug in a rug, and dry as a bone. So he j net fills himself full up with what is pro'. ably one of the meanest forms of delight, the enjoymsnt of witnessing the misery of others. Ion may not believe it, but I know people who take a distinct and positive pleasure in attending fuaerals for the cake of looking upon the grief of tbe aflioted and hugging the idea that it is somebody else andnot they themselves who is being macerated and ground up in the merciless mill of sorrow. On the same lines we may regard strong, healthy persons; they who have been as hearty as pigs all their lives; they who eat like hungry horses and sleep like polioamen off duty; who haTe soaree ever bad a pang or pain, and fanoy that illness in others is a oulpable weakness, if not an absolute sin. I have a notion to add that chronically well people are the ooldest blooded wretches on earth. There: I have said it, and it's true. If the reader is one of them, he can skip the following letter if he likes. There are plenty more to whom it will be an advantage to peruse it oarefolly. "For over ten years," says the writer, "I had suffered from indigestion and weakness. I felt weak, low, and heavy. I had no appetite, and when I iat down to the table, often I could not touoh a morsel of food. After meals I bad exoruoiating pain at the chest, through to the baok: also a gnawing constant pain under the shoulder blade. I had frequent bilious attacks, being so siok that I could not lift my head from the pillow. "At night I was restless, getting no proper sleep, and in the morning feeling worse tired than when I went to bed. I was much swollen about the waist, and was constantly belching wind. I got gradually weaker and weaker, it being a misery to get about. I continued like this for ten years, never being well, and not knowing what it was to enjoy meals. I saw doctor after doctor (I am sure that I oonsulted twenty dootors), who gave me medicines, but I received no benefit from them. They did not suit my case. I gave up all hope of ever getting well again. and wished that I was dead, always fretting at my weak state. In April of last year (1896) a pamphlet was sent me by post, and I read about Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup, My symptoms were accurately described in this small book, and I determined to try it. 111 sent to Mr. Ooppin's Stores, Marsham-street, Westminster, for a bottle of this medioine. After taking it a few days I found it was doing me good, I oould and enjoy my food, which. Agrotd with me. This gave me confidence, and I continued with it, and soon all tbe pain left me, and I felt as strong and well as ever I did in my life. I felt brighter, and could eat anything, nothing coming amiss. I have since kept in good health, taking an oooasional dose when required. You can make what use you like of this statement, and refer anyone to me. (Signed) (Mrs.) Annie White, 117, New Soutbgate, London, N., August 10th, 1897. This lady is the wife of Mr. H. White, butcher, New Southgate. In private conversation they both speak very enthusiastically of Mother Seigel s Syrap. Mrs. White says that although during her long illness she could scarcely walk at all, she can uow walk six miles without fatigue. And that is not half a bad tramp, even for a woman who has never been ill. Many of them oannot do as much. That our correspondent can is a striking illustration of the power of the medioine that cured her. I who write these lines have not always had the luok to be looking out of the window at other people fighting the bad weither. I have been bowed down under the tempest of sickness and pain myself. ll And so have millions. And it is toswhp sympathise with Mrs. White and rejoice with her on her [rwovery.
BUCKLEY. FAT AM TV TO A You=.-An inquest was held at Mold, oh Saturday, by Mr F. Ll. Jones, deputy. coroner for Flintshire, touobing the death of John Robert Croft, aged eight years, son of Joseph Croft, collier, Burnt wood. Deceased and hie sister were going to sohool on the 7th inst., and were proceeding along a private footpath near Sandyoroft Colliery. Workmen were engaged removing some wagons on a siding by means of a rope attaohed to a pulley and wheel. The boy put his foot on the wheel, and it became entangled, with the result that he sustained injuries to bit right leg and the lower part of his body. He died the same day at Mold Cottage Hospital. A verdict of U Aooidentil death was returned.
RYNGRARY GLEANINGS. --+-- WASXIKOTOR was careful of small things as well as gMat OMtt. THBBH are some things that silence alone can answer. STBABLY all great men have bad remarkable Memories. TUB strongest friendships have been formed in mutual adversity, as iron im most strongly united the fioroest flame. <I ABOVS all things we should have » care to keep the body from disease, the soul from ignorance, and the country from sedition. Is it net strange, that the thing which at the time you almost scorned, will be your saving clause at last ? I AM yet apt to think that men find their simple ideas agree, though in discourse they confound one another with different names. Do not say to children, Be good," but make them find pleasure in being so; develop within their hearts the germ of sentiments that nature has placed there. Give them opportunities of being truthful, liberal, compassionate; rely on the human heart; leave those precious seeds to bloom in the air which surrounds them; do not stifle them under a quantity of frames and net-works. MOM night, Fechter, Sothern, myself, and Baek. stone," Mr. Toole writes, If were leaving the Hay- market Theatre some time after the performance wai over when suddenly Buckistone discovered a M0- øticker posting an election placard right upon the front of that house of comedy. If How dare you, sir," he said, in his peculiar guttural and jerky manner; « how dare you post bills upon my theatre ?" The am paid no attention, but went on lathering the placard which he put up with an air of quiet defiance. ••You miserable bill-sticker," said Buckstone, his mamaeriIm coming out very pointedly with his temper, Mif you don't desist, you scoundrel, 111 have ymn lrwifAd up!" Whereupon the man, quietly making a oUfiTig dab at the poster, said, I'll have you locliad up, you impostor, if you dont mind, for giving sask a bad imitation of Buckstone—oould do U vedsi IDJIIIf t" ,-a rm yourseir in ms place," N tne rure, n a man would like to know how his tired neighbour feels. Like many another good rule, however, it is not to be too rigorously insisted upon. There are some forms of suffering, concerning which even the most sympathetic man may be willing to form his opinion by observation and reasoning rather than by ex- perience. Lord Camden, Lord Chief Justice of England, was walking one day with his host, Lord Dacre, an absent-minded man. As they were passing the parish stocks, Lord Camden said: I wonder whether a man in the stocks suffers physical pain ? I'm inclined to think that, apart from the sense of shame, he suffers nothing, unless the boys pelt him with brick- bats." Settle the doubt by putting your feet into the holes," said Lord Dacre. I will," exclaimed Camden, and he sat down and put his feet in the holes. Now, Dacre," said he, fasten the bolts and have me for tea minutes." Lord Dacre did no, but quickly forgot his distinguished guest, who sat awaiting his return with his feet fifteen inches higher than his seat, and his feet encircled by hard wood. Acute pains shot along the confined limbs; his feet ached, and cramps seized the muscles of the thighs. Falntness, giddiness, and thirst increased his discomfort. A peasant passing by was implored by the prisoner to liberate him, and answered with a sneer of derision. A clergyman on being told by the prisoner that he was Lord Camden, exclaimed," Ah! mad with liquor. It is droll, though, that be should imagine himself a chief justice!" and he passed on. For ten hours the poor judge sat in the stocks. When at last he was taken out and carried to his host's house, his miser- able plight had settled in his mind that the punish- ment of the stocks is attended by great physical suffering. A year or two after Lord Camden presided at a trial in which a workman brought an action against a magistrate who had wrongfully placed him in the stocks. The counsel for the magistrate at- tempted to laugh the case out of court, and made merry at the workman's statement that he had suf- fered intense pain during his confinement. Brother, Were you ever in the stocks ?" whispered Lord Camden, leaning forward. 11 Never, my lord," answered the astonished lawyer. Well, I have been, and let me assure you that the agony is awfuL"

MOSTYN. MUSICAL COMPETITIVE MEETING AT THE NATIONAL SCHOOLS. One of the most enjoyable strictly musical com- petitive meatings was held on Wednesday evening, at the National Sohools, in aid of the day schools' Building Fond. The audience was large and fully appreciated the varied vosal (choral and solo), and instrumental music. Mr Wm. Roberta, J.P., Glan- ydon House, presided, and Canon Griffith Jones, conducted the musioal adjudicator was Mr Wilfrid Jones, R.A.M., Wrexham, and the aooompanist was Mr Willie Nuttall, A.L.C.M., Holywell. The secretarial duties were carried out by Mr D. Jones, Penroe, aasict.d by Mi Ll. P. Jones, while Mr Peter Foulkes, aoted as treasurer. The President in opening the meeting said:-It affords me great pleasure to preside this evening. When asked by the Committee to take the ohair I did not expeot to see my name down for an address, but I am pleased that it is the only item on the programme, without a competition, or I should have soon been ousted out of my ohair (laughter). I feel very sure you have not come here to listen to a speech from me; especially when we have such a varied and long programme before us. I should like, however, to explain the object of our meeting. Some three years ago the managers were called upon by the Education Department to make alterations in the way of olassrooms, porches and ventilators. Alterations which were much needed I must admit, particularly the ventilators. The Managers had to pay about U30 for the alterations, and out of that amount over A300 has been paid, by subscriptions, lectures, conceits, sales of work and bazaars, and, considering that Mostyn is only a small place, I think the managers have done well (hear, hear). The object of this meeting is to further reduce the amount owing. The oommittee ate to be complimented for getting this meeting op, it luromotes competitions, and what can be more edifying to young1 people than to devote their spare time to the cultivation of music. I hope that the meeting will be a suooees (hear, hear). "Y dyddiau Gynt," ('Old Memories') by Dr. Parry, was the test piece for the tenor solo. Two competitors came forward, and gave an excellent rendition of the song. The adjudicator in his award highly complimented the winner, Mr R. T. Jones, BagUlt. The pianoforte solo, one of Chopin's compositions, —a Valse in D flit, was played by two competitors. The competition was restricted to ohildren under 15 years of age. The adjudicator praised the selection of the pieoe and congratulated the competitors upon their careful and tasteful playing. The first prize was awarded to Miss Louisa Williams, Greenfield, and the second to Master Edward Morris, Talbot, Holywell. The only juvenile choir entering for tLe prize of 25s. (given by Mr A. Tudor Eyton), for the rendering of Dr. Parry's "Plant y wlad," was IIYBrythonisid bach," Flynuougroew, conducted by Mr John Lloyd. The choir was awarded the prize and the oonduotor was invested by Mrs Tudor Eyton. The soprano solo The Kingdom Beautiful" (Warhurst), was won by Miss S. E. Jones, Bagillt, 8L) the prize of 7s. 6d. having been given by a Friend. A gold oentre silver medal was offered for the Euphonium solo Ma Normandie." Two aooomplished competitors gave excellent perform- ances. The prize was awarded to Mr T. E. Hnghes, Mostyn, who was deoorated by Mrs Hammond. Three parties out of seven entries sang the duet Gwys i r gad," ('Call to arms') a spirited com- position of R. S. Hughes. "The Snowdrops"— Messrs T. W. Sibeon and D. Hnghes (of the Holy- well Snowdrops Troupe), gave the most finished rendering. In the mixed ohoir competition, it was somewhat ditappointing that one ohoir only should have ap. peared out of three entries. The test pieoe was R. S. Hughes' anthem Wei, f'enaid d6s yn mlaen," ('Where shall rest be found,') and the prize was A3, and a handsome silver cup valoe JE1 10s. Od., given by Messrs Lever Brothers, to the oonduotor. The Bethania Choir, Ffynuongroew, conducted by Mr John Lloyd, Ffynnongroew, gave a praiseworthy performance. The ohoir was awarded the prize, and the silver cup was presented to the conductor by Mrs Wm. Roberts. An interesting instrumental competition was the cornet solo "The Hardy Noreeman." The prize, a gold-centre silver medal, was given by Messrs R. J. Ward and Son, musical instrument makers, Liverpool. Two competitors out of three entries played the piece. The winner of this solo proved to be one of the "Snowdrops"—Mr W. J. Hughes, Llanerchymor. T Baohgen Dewr (' The noble boy of truth ') was the test piece in the baritone solo competition. Three selected competitors out of nine entrants sang. The winner giving the most intelligent and dramatic rendering was again one of the Siuowdrope '-Mr D. Hughes, Gronant. The brass band quaitstt "Cloudsand Sunshine" was one of the most attractive items of the evening. The prizes were—1st, 14s. and 2nd, UfI. worth of mosio (Wright and Round's special offer). There were three entries, two of whom appeared. The first prize was awarded to Pedwar Oyf&iU"-four members of the Welsh Flannel Mills Brass Band, Htly well—Mr Fred. Chapman, leader. The second prize to the Llanerohymor Quartett, led by MrT. E. Hughes. The male voice competition Awn i ben y Wyddfa fawr (Hugh Davies), for which a prize of j62 was offered by Lord Mostyn (choirs not to exoeed 20 voioes), was competed for by three oboirs: —" Meibion Min y mor," Gronant, conductjr—Mr J. W. Luke; Betbania Male Voice," Ffynnongroew, conductor -Mr John Lloyd; "Cor o Weithywr," Ffynnon- groew, conduotor-Mr Thomas Williams. The adjudicator gave a very congratulatory adjudication, awarding the honourd to the Cor o Weithwyr." One party- The Ffynnongroew Philbarmonio Party"—entered for the quartett "Good night, beloved," and were awarded half the prize, the adjudicator expressed disapproval of the conducting of a quartett. At the close of the meeting, Canon Griffith-Jones proposed a vote of thanks to Mr Wm. Roberts for presiding over the meeting, and at the same time took the opportunity, on behalf of the audience, of congratulating him upon his elevation to the magis- terial benoh (applause). The proposition was reoeived with hearty applause, to which Mr Roberts suitably acknowledged. A vote of thanks to the conductor and the officials of the meeting, and the singing of the National Anthem, brought the meeting to a ter- mination.

EXTENSION OF THE LIGHTING' The Lighting and Highway Committee re- oommended the consideration of the extension of gas lighting to Holway and the Grove res- pectively. RECOMMENDING STOXBS FOR THE TRAMPS. The Highway Committee reoommended that the Council suggest to the Guardians of the Holywell Union that stones from Alltyooed be used at the Tramp Labour yard in lieu of the limestone. SBALDfG THE RATE. The Chairman formally signed and sealed the rate for the ourrent year at 3s. 3d. in the pound. NIGHT AND DAY CARTING. Tenders were reoeived for carting, and the Sanitary Committee reoommended out of eight tenders, three for the decision of the Council- Edw. Pierce, Stamford, 38s. per week; Edmund Rees. 92 Is. Od. per week; and John Holmes, 35B. per week. Mr Bennett asked that the decision of the Council in the matter be given in oommittee. Mr Bryan opposed the suggestion. He did not believe in private meetings. In publio matters ratepayers should know how their representatives TOto. The Chairman: The matter has been before Oommittee who have prepared the business for the Council. Where a matter means an ex- penditure of nearly £100 a year it should be decided in open meeting. Mr Bryan: I propose that Mr Holmes' tender be accepted, Mr Biohards: I do not think it fair to pop up in this way. If the ballot was legal the other night, I do not see why it is not legal to-night. There are a good many tradesmen here who would like to vote by ballot. Mr Carman suggested that the Council vote by ballot for the three names; the highest of the three can then be formally proposed, seconded and carried. Mr Bennett: I will seoond that. Mr Bryan I propose an amendment that the appointment be made by open voting. Mr J. E. Jones: I beg to seoond the amendment. Mr R. Biohards: The men who have fought the hardest for years for the ballot are now the first to go in for open voting. Mr Biyan: i always go in for open voting in Council meetings. Mr R. Biohards: You should change your principle. The proposition was carried to vote by ballot. The ballot resulted :-Reeis, 5 votes; Pierce, 1; Holmes, 8. On the formal proposition of Mr J. LI. Williams, seconded by Mr Bryan, Mr Holmes' tender was accepted. STOHB TENDERS. Four tenders were received for the supply of lump stone and gravel, Edward Williams, Halfway House, 3s. 6d per load (or 3s. 9d. outside the district); James Jones, Penyball, 3s. 8id. per load, gravel, 3s. per load; Robert Jones, stones, 3s. 6d. per load, gravel 2s. 6d. per load; Robert Davies, Derwen Bach, stone, 3s. 6d. per load, gravel, 3s. 6d. per load. Mr Joseph Jones proposed that the selection be referred to the Highway Oommittee with power to act. Mr Bennett seconded the proposition. Mr J. LI. Williams moved an amendment that the Couneil select the stone contract. Mr QiifllUw auuunded the amendnunt. The proposition to refer the selection of the stone tenders to oommittee was carried by 7 to 6 votes. Mr Griffiths: I did not see you vote, Mr Chairman P The Chairman: 0, I vote for the proposition, I don't know the quality of the stones. Dr. Jones: I think we had better refer the rest of the business to Oommittee. It is no use coming here for the general business. Mr J. LI. Williams: I second that. The Chairman: It has been decided. DISINFECTANTS. The Chairman: The next business is the question of disinfectants.—This was proposed to be referred to oommittee.-The Chairman: I hope you will not get childish over this matter; let us have a little order.—It was deoided to oontinue the use of disinfectants as heretofore until other instruotinns rr,) given. PRINTING THE ¡)l. l.1"" U ORDERS. Three tenders were received for the printing of the Standing Orders of the Council, that of Messrs Davies and Co., was accepted, at £ 1 Is. Od. TUMBLER OART. Quotations were received of tumbler carts for sanitary purposes, and after going through the list, it was resolved that the tender of Messrs E. and H. Hughes, Ironmongers, High-street, for a 160 gallon tumbler oart at JMO 7s. Od. be accepted. THE LATB MR. GLADSTONE. An acknowledgment was reoeived from Mr H. J. Gladstone of the vote of oondolenoe passed by the Council on the occasion of the death of Mr W. E. Gladstone. THE BATHING SEASON AT THE WELL. Mr B. Biohards said he had observed that printed notices had been iesued stating that the well would be open "as usual." He under- stood that the Ladies' Well" was to be olosed, but by the notice that the Well would be used "as usual," he took it there would be no interference. He considered that the Ladise Well "should be dosed.-The Chairman: I do not think we have anything to do with it now, and it is a question whether we should interfere in any way at present. Mr Atherton has not yet taken possession. I fanoy we must leave it until we hear something more. THE EXTENSION OF THB URBAN ABBA. Mr J. Ll. Williams asked had any movement been made with regard to the resolution for the extension of the urban area by inoluding the distriot of Holway.—The Clerk replied that it would open a wide question with considerable expense. If the Council oonsidered the question of taking in a portion of Greenfield, it would be worth their while to consider the question of taking in the whole of it. It would be useless to go in for a small portion.—Mr Williams: I only oonfined my resolution to Hoi Way, as the thin end of the wedge. I leave it tc the Counoil whether they will go in for the whole. THE TOWN BUILDINGS AND THEIR DECORATION. Mr J. LI. Williams asked did the Council purpose acting upon the resolution passed to paint and decorate and furnish the Town Build- ings, including the Workingmen's Clubroom ? It was explained that the Committee appointed to draw out the speoifioation had not done so owing to the non-attendance of members.—Mr Griffiths suggested that a competent man be engaged to submit specifications to the Oouncil. He could not pretend to specify what a painter should do. The Chairman: There is also the question of furniture. Mr Williams: The Council gave an under- taking to the deputation on behalf of the work- ingmen, that they would complete the Olubroom, if that is not done the Counoil will be aoting dishonourably. Mr J. W. Davies: It it time to bring the I County Sohool Governors to book, for the damage done to the buildings during their occu- pation. Mr J. LI. Williams: We may the Working- men's Clubroom is not value for money, oon- sequently we claim there is a large sum in hand to be utilised for decorating and furnishing the room. I do not think there is anything dis- honourable or underhanded in that, or anything that the auditor could grumble about. I am quite aware of the way it was got over before. Mr Griffiths proposed that a competent trades- man be oalled in to draw out specifications and an estimate for the guidanoe of the Oouoil for the painting and decoration of the Town Build- ings. Mr Williams seconded the proposition. Mr Joseph Jones contended that the Oounoil had deoided to the ooutrary, that the Committee of the Council should draw out the specifications, and, if necessary, oall in the assistance of a competent tradesman to direct the committee. He moved that the original decision of the Oounoil be adhered to. Mr J. E. Jones seoonded the amendment which was oarried.
MB. HUDDLESTON OIUT-WrrM--When Mr. SW Baron) Huddleston was at the bar, he was generally, on one side or the other, in important horse cases. At Gloucester he was invariably retained in cases of equine dispute; and it was said that he not only knew a great deal about the quadruped in question, but even more about the bipeds who had to dsal with it. He had a hard nut, however, to crack in a Mr. Frederick Jacobs, who carried on a very lucrative business at Cheltenham as a horse dealer. Mr. Jacobs was, if not fond of law, not afraid of it; and he more than once fought a tough-and-go case out, and got a verdict, too, although the leader of the circuit-Mr. Huddleston himself-was againsthim. The latter, therefore, began to look upon Mr. Jacobs as a foeman worthy of his steel; and having once got him as a plaintiff in the witness-box for cross- examination, the learned counsel deliberately prepared, after the examination in chief, to administer a chastisement which would not soon be forgotten either by the victim or the spectators. He began by saying in a sharp, harsh tone, Now, Jacobs I" Mr. Jacobs calmly retorted, It Well, Huddleston I" Here- upon an impressive pose was made by the astonished and indignant counsel, and the Judge (Baron Martin) sternly rebuked the witness. Sir," he observed, "you must treat the learned counsel with more respect." "My lord," answered the imperturbable dealer, I am sure you would not be so forgetful of eti- quette as to call me • Jacobs' upon so brief an introduc- tion." His lordship, amid much laughter, nodded his acquiescence in this undoubted rule of etiquette, and intimated as much to Mr. Huddleston, who, not noticing that the witness was respectfully addressing the judge, somewhat testily cried out, Come, Mr. Jacobs (emphasising the prefix). The witness, with the most perfect but irritating sangfroid, turned round and remarked, Wait a minute, Mr. Huddleston. At present I am addressing a gentleman. When he has done with me I will give you every attention." This hot rejoinder drew from all the young barristers present, and from the public in court a roar of laughter; and even the grave seniors could not retain expressions of satisfaction at the spectacle of the biter bitten. But the best was yet to come. Feeling that the laugh wns ng-ainst him, Mr. Huddleston changed his tactics, and, smiling in return with a blandness which displayed his excellent teeth to great advantage, recommenced his attack by saying, "Well, Mr. Jacobs, let me ask you. Are you good at ac- counts or do you employ a book-keeper P" Mr. Jacobs My head is not good at accounts." Mr. Huddleston I thought not. Your head is much too good-looking to be good for much." Mr. Jacobs: "Well, Mr. Huddleston, in that particular attribute I certainly have the advantage of you." There was such a roar of merriment at this sudden turning of the tables that it was impossible for the discomfited counsel to recover his temper and coolness, and Mr. Jacobs was very soon dismissed from the pillory without receiving the rough handling which had been intended for him; and, to crown all, he got a verdict, and came off with flying colours all round. A MONSTROUS BOA.-The Penang Gazette of a late date says: A monster boa-constrictor was killed one morning this week by the overseer of convicts at Bayam Lepas, on the road to ToW Enmbu. His attention was attracted by the squealing of a pig, and on going to the place he found it in the coils of a snake. A few blows from the changkolf of the convicts seemed to despatch the reptile; and un coiling him he was found to be twenty-eight feet in length and thirty-two inches in girth. This is one of the largest specimens we have heard of in Penang." RELICS OF THE PLAGUE OF LONDON.—A few years since the workmen, in digging out the foundation on the east end of the Three Nuns Court, by St. Michael's Church, Aldgate, came to a considerable quantity, up- wards of a cart-load, of human skulls and bones, about seven feet from the surface. In some of the papers it has been conjectured that they formed part of the sweepings of some adjacent churchyard after the fire of London. This was most likely the great pit, or dreadful gulf," as De Foe calls it, provided for the parishes of Aldgate acd Whitechapel, which, during a fortnight after it was opened, had thrown into it 1114 bodies, when they were obliged to fill it up. De Foe adds," I doubt not but there may be some ancient persons alivo in the parish who are able to show in what part of the churchyard the pit lay better than I can; the mark of it also was many years to be seen in the churchyard, or the surface lying in length, parallel with the passage which goes by the west wall of the churchyard out of Houndsditch, and turns again into Whitechapel, coming out near the Three Nuns Inn.Nota and Queries. THE INSPIRATION OF MUGBY JUNCTION."— On the arrival of the train at Rugby, it was dis- covered that the carriage in which we were travelling was on fire. While I was busy superintending the transfer of the light baggage, Mr. Dickens came along the platform in a state of great excitement, and requested me to accompany him to the refreshment room. Then, standing in the doorway, and pointing with his fingers, he described the picture he par- ticularly wished to impress on my mind. "You see, Dolby—stove to right hand-torn cocoanut matting on floor-counter across room-coffee-urn-tea-urn- plates of rusks-pileø of sawdust sandwiches and ehrunken-up oranges—bottles—tumblers—and glasses on counter and behind counter, note particularly our missis." When the train was fairly off again, Mr. Dickens proceeded to explain. Entering the refreshment room, he and Mr. Wills had each asked for a cup of coffee, which was supplied to them. While Wills was feeling in his pocket for some small change wherewith to pay, Mr. Dickens reached across the counter for the sugar and milk, when both articles were suddenly snatched away from him and placed beneath the counter, while his ears were greeted with the remark, made in shrill and shrewish tones, You shant have any milk and sugar 'till you two fellows have paid for your coffee." This speech was delivered by the woman whom he had pointed out to me as our Missis," and it gave infinite amusement to a page in buttons, who, with that demoniacal spirit which seems to seize some boys at the idea of somebody else catching it," was so overjoyed that he burst outinto an uncontrollable fit of laughter. The discomfited travellers left their coffee on the counter, after an apology for making so free with the sugar basin. But it was an evil day for that "buttons," for he figured as "The Boy at Mugby in the next Christmas number of All the Year Round.—"Charles Dickens as I Knew Him," by George Dolby. IT is highly important, in educating a girl to be an efficient self-reliant woman, that her hand should be trained to be useful. Of course the details of her education should be arranged with regard to the social position which she will probably eventually occupy. In ordinary cases the hand should be as carefully trained as the brain; for, to fulfil the ordinary duties which fall to the lot of average middle-class Englishwomen, a useful hand is abso- lutely necessary. Girls who have the advantage of studying at our female colleges and high schools, do not, as a rule, belong to the wealthy and aristocratic circles where every domestic duty is performed by servants. The generality of such girls will not, when they are married, have a staff of twenty-five or thirty Bervants and a housekeeper to look after them; they will have to be their own housekeepers for the most part, with probably only one or two servants under the-. in such a household as this the wife must assist if all is to go well, and her head and hands must be the chart and helm of the domestic ship. As an assistance in acquiring manual dexterity, such as is often required in housewifery, the teaching of some musical instrument is not to be overlooked. A trained hand can always perform its tasks, and, guided by an educated brain of average intelligence, wifteooi I kj™ to wim yy WW*/
FLINT. Ax INSOLBNT BHOKMB.—On Wednesday last, at the Police Court, before Major O. E. Dyson, a man named Thomas Morgan was brought up on a charge ofvagraney. Inspector R. Jones proved the case and Dr. Marston and Mr J. Gresty gave corrobora- tive evidence. The man, who was said to be a native of South Wales, had been in the town for a day or two, and by his persistent begging and insolence, accompanied by foal language, had given much annoyance. He was sentenced to seven days' imprisonment with hard labour.
