Particularly I deire to show my appreciation to those who were withjher at her bedside. I cannot speak too highly of the affectionate care and thoughtfulness which they have shown all thrcu 'h. No one could have done more or taken more pains to relieve and help us than Dr Grieve and ur Massie, who were constantly with her, and whose kind- ness I can never forget, though one cannot the less appreciate the help of those who were with her for a shorter period. To the many who have shown their sympathy both during my wife's illness, and at her call to her rest, my deepest thanks are given. Thanking you in anticipation for insert- ing this letter.- Yours, .etc., W. C. DEW. Queenstown, Cape Colony, August 31st, 1908.

Golf Club Formed at Denbigh. Mr G Francis presided at the adjourned meeting at the Bull Hotel, on Monday, held to receive the report of the committee t deputed to examine suitable sites for a;, course and to report. tHe stated that they had inspected the land at Llanberis and found it rather congested, but suitable otherwise. The shoofciag tenant, who had been, consulted, had deferred his answer untilNie shoald have an oppertunity aS inspecting the site. fie (Mr Francis) bad found another course -,at Cae Trosffordd, under Ydtrad. which he considered suitably, as there were plenty of natural hazards to make a suitable course. The turf was ft ¡ little inferior to the best at Llanberis, but he thought that it would make a better I course. He proposed that the committee be authorised to inspect that site and make a choice. Mr W James seconded, and it was agreed to. On the motion of Mr Halford, seconded by Dr Lewis, it was deeded that a club be formed. Mr Thomas proposed that the sub- scription be a guinea 'for men and half-a- guinea for ladies. I' Dr Jones seconded, and the motion was carried unanimously. On the motion of Coloael Heaton, a rider i ,was carried that there should be not entrance fee for the &rst year. The question of family tickets was also discussed, but this and other matters were deferred until the club is actually in possession oi a course. Candidates for membership are requested to send in their |' names to the hon secretary as early as j passible. About 50 have already sent ill their names, and these wiU be balloted for by the provisional committee. A meeting of members will then be called, at which ofS«ers will be elected and rules passed.

County Magistrates' Court. FREE CHURCH COUNCIL PROTEST AGAINST THEATRICALS. WEDNESDAY.—Before Mr W D W Griffith (presiding), C!lpt Cole, Col Heaton, the Mayor (Mr BJRZ Jones), Mr R E Hughes, and Mr Owen Williams. JURY LISTS. The jury lists were presented by the assistant overseers and approved. THEATRICAL LICENCE RENEWED Mrs Newell, the proprietress of Newell's Theatrical Pavilion, applied for a renewal, for 14 days more, of her licence, which was granted for three months and expires on October 15th. Supt Jones said he had no objection to the renewal of the licence. The place was most respectably conducted, and he had not the slightest complaint to make. The Magistrates Clerk (Mr J Parry Jones), read a letter signed by the Rev Evan Joues and Mr J Morris Jones, president and secretary respectively of the Denbigh Free Church Council, containing a resolution passed at a meeting of the Council at Pendref Chapel, strongly appealing to the magistrates not to renew the licence. The Magistrates' Clerk pointed out that no reason was given in support of the opposition to the renewal of the licence. Capt Cole It is very well managed, I hear. Supt Jones Excellently; I have no complaint to make. The Mayor strongly opposed the re- newal. He did not suggest there was anything against the conduct of the place, but it was a strong temptation to young people, and children especially, to spend their money there, which couldibe better applied to other purposes. About iclo or X15, he believed, was taken at the Pavilion every evening for six nights a week. There were many unemployed in the town), and a great deal of poverty prevailed, and yet poor people took their money to the Pavilion. Moreover, its existence created a taste amongst young people for theatres, which would affect them detrimentally in future life. Having had a run of three months, he thought the preprietress ought to be satisfied. Captain Cole remarked that there were a great majay things worse than going to a theatre. The Mayor But people who cannot afford it go there, and I think it is < temptation which is not desirable. The majority of the Bench decided to grant tke renewal. GAME TRESPASS. Evan Roberts, gamekeeper in the employ of Mr Waud, summoned Richard Davies, of Tarygroes, Prion, for having, on thef 12th ult, on land in the occupation o Margaret Parry, trespassed in search of game. Defendant admitted the offence, ;bat stated that he was werking in the field at the time. Mr A 0 Evans etated that the game- keeper was on duty In the field where a quantity of hand-reared birds had been turned in. The defendant saw a pher-sant coming towards the netting, and asked Edward Jones and 5 M Parry to assiet him to get it. They remonstrated with the defendant, and told him he would get into trouble if he took the bird. However, he killed it with a pifeel, and hid it, -&nd the .gamekeeper saw it done. There was an- other summons of killing a bird out of h 0 season against the.defendant, but as he had admitted the previous charge he would consent to a withdrawal on payaaent of -costs. This was agreed to by the Bench, and defendant was fined 6s 6d and 13s 6 costs,
Musical Service at St. David's. On Sanday evening there was a coatinua- tion of the English Church HanestRestival services at St David's Church, when the Rector and the Eev W H Humphreys oSciated, and the lessons were read by Mr Morgan, Broadleys Cottage. There was a crowded congregation. The Sector preached a very ale and instrsetive sermon an the true meaaing of worship and sacrifice; from the two offerings by Abel and Cain. The chief feature in a very beautiful and edifying service was the very fine rendering by the choir, aognaested by setae ladies, underrihe conductorship of the Rector, and with the very aoie leadership of the organist, Mr Alex Bellamy, of Dr Garrett's harvest cactata entitled Harvest Thanksgiving.' The.Peboir was ia excellent form, the boys* parts were delightfully rendered, their beitg some particularly good boys' voices in the choir. The follow- ing ladies rendered irory great service, in moat efficiently sustaining the soprano and alto .parts, namely:—Sopranos, Miss Irene Roberts, Miss Ethel Buller, Miss Lucy Harvey, Miss May Roberts, Miss May Parry. Miss Florence G Jones; altos, Mrs F W Roberts, Mrs Alex Bellamy, Mrs W James, Mrs D Williams, Miss Amy Charles, Miss F-va Cooke, MissPhyllis Hughes. The whole performance was a complete success, highly creditable to choir aud orgavist, I and the beautiful music was fully appreci- ated by the large congregation. The offertory at this servioe, and also at the,! EogliSchservice in the morning at St Mary's, was in augmentation of the salary of the English organist.(Mr Alex Bellamj), and the sum obtained was £ 12, a recogni- tion of his services which he has thoroughly well deserved.

Herbert Smith, aged 22, presented a forlorn appearance at a Special County Magistrates' Court on Friday, when he was brought up in custody and charged with breaking into the house of Mi Thomas Davies, Ffrith y Ceubren, Llan- rhaiadr, on the loth of August and stealing certain articles, valued at £ 7 15a, there- from. The magistrates present were Mr W D W Griffith (in the chair), Capt Cole, and the Mayor (Mr Boaz Jones). Thomas Davies, Ffrith y Ceubren, Llan- rhaiadr, farmer, said the prisoner had been in his employ as a labourer. On the 15th ult. he left his house that day about quarter to three in the afternoon. His wife had gone to Bhyl in the morning, and there was no one on the farm except prisoner, whom he left in the turnip field. He locked the house up and the windows were fastened. He came home at eight o'clock the same night, when he found the door open, half the lock on the floor, and the hatchet against the door frame outside. He went into the house after and found the chest of drawers open, which was closed when he left. He went upstairs to look for a new pair of boots, but they were gone. After lighting the fire he went to search for prisoner but could not find him. He fed the cattle, and afterwards be went to the barn and found under a machine a parcel containing bis drawers, smock frock, and a razor, which were wrapped in prisoner's over- coat. He also found his purse and pair of old boots he had given the prisoner. His wife returned from Rhyl at 10, and she found missing from the chest of drawers an overcoat, a jacket, two vests, a pair of boots, and a purse containing R3 in gold. Two sixpences and a penny were also missing. After that they found a shirt, pair of leggings, pair of braces, and a pocket handkerchief missing. He believed that the total value of stuff missing, including the money, would be about X7, 15s. The coat and overcoat were found on the prisoner. Jane Davies, the wife of the prosecutor, gave corroborative evidence. The Chairman: How long had the prisoner been in your service ? Witness Three weeks. Did yoj know him before he came ?— Xo, but he had worked at a farm close by. Did he live in the house with you 7— j Yes, and had his meals with us. P.C. Pierce, Llanrhaiadr, said at 12 mid- night on the 15ih he received information from the prosecutor that his house had been broken into and the following articles missingOne overcoat, one jacket, two vests, one cap, bracers, leggings, pair of boots, one shirt, and one pockethandker- chief, £3 in gold, 2s 6d in silver, and a penny. On the following day he examined the premises of the prosecutor and found > the kitchen deor had been tampered wnh, and there were marks on the door as if it had been caused by a blunt instrament. Inside was half of the lock on the £ oor. Prosecutor showed him the axe, which was found leankig against the frame of the door. He exammed the windows and found some netting wire had been removed at the back kitchen window. Prosecutor took him W the barn and showed him the parcel described above, and the other things. He went in search of prisoner and found hira yesterday at Maesbyddyn Issa Farm, Cloz- aenog, where he was at work. He tDld him he was wanted for breaking into the house in question. He went to the farm house afifd brought the overcoat and coat belonging to the prosecutor.. He charged him witfc the offence when he got to the s ation, ,,and he replied w I em gaiUy." He made a statement that be -sold the pair of boots-to a boy at Ruthin for 2s, the braces te a boy at Manchester for 2d, and be thuow the leggings away on Moel Fammau. He gave the two vests to a salt man on the road, and said that he broke into the house with an axe.

At the County Magistrates' Court on Wedaeeday the prisoner was brought up in custody, and the charge was reduced to a simple larceny case, and prisoner pleaded guilty to the offence. g al In answer to the Cfe&irman prisoner said the reason why he took the things was because the prosecutor did not give him aay wages. Supt Huh Jones said there were previous convictions against prisoner, but he was DOt in a position to prove them. The Chairman Have you been con- victed before ? Prisoner Yes, sir. The Chairman said that in consideration of his youth the Bench bad decided to deal leniently with the prisoner, and he was sentenced to three calendar months' im- prisonmeEt with hard libour.
