CITIZENS' IMPROVE THEIR GOAL AVERAGE. BARGIES HAT TRICK. (By "Recorder.") Bangor 8 Denbigh 1 Lksnbigu, who occupy an undignified posi- tion on the Coanbination chart were tihe visitors at Bangor on Saturday afternoon. Unfortunately the visitors "wero very indifferently represented, and through various cau-«s their best players could not turn up. In fact they had only nine players on the field. Bangor too were Tiuable to place a representative toam on the field, D. J. Thomas being substituted for Jack Jones, who has not been doi,ng himself i'ustioe lately in away matches, though at tome he has been doing grand work. [Wright, of the 'Varsity, figured as the pivot of the home team. The ground was very sodden, parts being ooveud with wa.t so good play was out of the question. The teams were: — BANGOR: Ted Owen; llwfa. Williams and D. J. Thomas; D. T. Davies, Alfy Thomas, and Jimmy Jones; Dick Evans, Dargie, Wright, Hughie Davies, and Oliver. DENBIGH: Sam Griffithj; R. T. Williams and J. P. Evans; Cartwright, T. A. Davies, a.nd Savle; E. E. Davies, W. O. Hughes, end Stanley Hughes. Referee: Mr G. H. Russell. An effort was made by Mr Clough, of Den- bigh, to arrange for 35 minutes each way to be played, but Dargie, the hom-e captain, refused, and insisted upon full time being played. Tne game opened wit.h Bangor on the ag^res- .1,0, a.nd in the first few minutes Eva.ns regis- tered a. ourious sort of goal a,aiikst his old team. The ball appeared to be going* out of play, but Evans managed to keep it in. and eent ail elevated shot towards Sam Griffiths the jbigh custodian. The ball wemt level with tin Crossbar, end then dropped into the comer I of the net. In a minute afterwards Dargie $e}..t in a smashing shot a little wide of the iru.rk. A prebty mora was made by Stanley Hvighos and E. E. Davies, who tricked the he rji defence very cutely and worked niatters ao lat the OLD COLWYN BAYITE fujnd himself in front of Ted. His shot, how- e\ -r, struck the side of tho post, aud seemed to bo bounding into the net when Ted man- & ¡ to get his hand to it, and averted the dan- «V, though E. E. Daviei tried hard to back- -6^1. Tlw Denbigh defence packed their <•< al vt,,y effectively, repelling shot after shot. E. E Davies fairly did what he liked with the B-iugor defence, and the spectators cheered h t'l fo- some telling work, though it finished with th « ball goers' behind. Dargie notched Bangor s se\;nd point, heading in from a. corner well pla. ed by Evans. Wright looked like adding" Nc 3, when R. T. Williams very smartly clewed, and the custodian did well io nojoture a Ss. T-t from close range, from Hugaie Davies Though Denbigh were two men short they didn't, make a bad show, the defence working •piendiuiy. apd Darg'ie found a tough customer in J. P.

NOTES. Denbigh are not very well known to a Bangor crowd, and possibly this accounts for bho small attendance last Saturday. Bangor turned out without Jack Jones, who i.. "holidaying." The home team did not. look right without him, and the sooner ho is on duty again the better. 1>. J. Thoma.s took up his position, and did as well as could be expected. Thomas is a tower of streaigth in the Junior ranks, but Davies is of another school, and proved too much of a match. Denbigh had gTcat difficulty in getting a team together, and when they turned out they were two short. They numbered nine, which is a remarkable coincidence, as that figure repre- sented the Hon. Ormsby Gore's majority in their Boroughs. Bangor materially had niittexs fairly in their own hands. One wonders Evans, who was play- ing against his old love, 'had suoh a fairly easy- task to work through. Like a flash, he fired from long range, and Griffiths succumbed in the first minute. It brilliantly worked, and deserved to score. The ali irnp,°rtant 9—those good and tried NINE —toon maae their felt, and against the majority' fought like the noble 600. Stanley Hugr.es proved a porfect terror to the hQrnesteg, and on one occasion lie fairly bottled I up the detonee, and with only Tod in frQnt ail locked promising. He let fly, and the leather went bang against the upright^ Owen.s sprung upon the bail" and cleared, ani1 his trickiness caused endlesa mirth. Af'-or this attack Bangor showered shots in tho direction of Griffiths, and to his credit it must be said that bo kept a ood goal. Abortive corners foil to Bangor, and the scene was continued ad lib in front of Griffiths, who did ziome clever work. Dargie was out for the day, and fairly. crushed all opposition. Griffiths fairly quaked, to Bangor's "terrible" ho feW a victim on tareo oceae :ons—another to the record of Dairgie 9 hat tricks. Denbigh were a beaten team, and Dargie again ruled supreme. One spectator on the stand shouted out to the demon scorer to give "some- body elst) a chance," and the remark caused a chuckle. The interval arrived with five to love. The concluding chapter opened with eleven player^ agaia-st Griffith. He proved a good 'un, and some of the shots he saved were of the first water. Wright managed to get in the sixth, but the ahct did not deserve to soore, as Griffiths wa3 capable of dealing with a much smarter effur.5 He soon demonstrated this a moment later with a solaradid save from the same player. The homesters fairly did what they like with their opponents, and some "showed" Tnis fooling was painful to witness, and some of the spectatoc-a were not slow in showing their re- sentment. Dargie and Oliver added to tho talc, and brought, up the total to 8. Stamley Hughes, who was the only trior on the losing side, meant to "do or die," and at hist hi3 efforts were rewarded. He richly de- served the plum as well as the cheer. Jusfc on time Stanley was agtaun withia an ace of scoring, Ted being particularly lucky in preventing the "cert." Tho game was concluded, when the shades were failing fast. A review—a poor and an uninteresting gajne.

SMART WIN FOR THE BRIDGE. 1 TWO POINTS AT HOLYHEAD. (By "Ciitic"). I Menai Bridge 6 Holyhead Res 3 I Holyhea.d Res. 3 After a long absence lloiyhead Juniors cn Saturday entertained Menai Bridge. Referee E. Lloyd Williams marshalled the teams in the following order:— HOLYIIEivD RES.: Newton Williams; Jas. Evans and Richard. Lewis; O. Williams, T. Hyam and R. J. Jonos; Thompson, Rees, Mosley Jono*, Hugh Williams, Tom. Joseph and J. Jones, London-road. MENAI BRIDGE: J. Owen; W. Edwards and J. T. Jonos; R. G. Edwards, R. G. Williams and E. Owen; G. Edws.rds, G. Dawson, J. Gerrard A. Hughes and A. R. Owen. The homesters lost the toss, tho visitors elect- ing to play down the slop?. Holyhead played with ten men at the outset, Lewis being ab. sent. J. Jonos scored in the first live minutes with a capital shot. Two minutes later Joseph ihad increased the lead. Rrsuming. the visitors went away in a body, and after Newton Wil- liams had "effected a wonderful clearance Dawson reduced the lead. The gro-und was on the heavy side, render ing accurate footwork a matter of great diffi- culty. The game was of an even description, both sides attacking in turn. Joseph, a new comer, shaped exceptionally well on the home left. The visitors attacked determinedly, a.nd from a melee in front of the home goal made tho scores level. The home pivot was accidentally kicked, end though he remained on the field he was more or less a "passenger." GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY :OST. After a. spoil of midfield play R. J. Jones oontr&d for Joseph to hit the post. The ball came to J. Jones, -who slipped when in act of shooting, a golden opportunity being lost. At the other end, the Bridgites gained a corner which was cleared at the expense of a eeeond. Several times the homesters came near scoring, but they experienced biud luck upon several occasions. At last, they gained the lead, J. Jones scoring a fine goal, as the result of some effective play by Moeeley Jones. Not to be denied, the visitors again pressed, Owen getting through and scoring a good goal. Still attacking the visitors gained all abortive corner on the left, followed im- mediately by another from which Arthur Hughes put them ahead. Half-time Menai Bridge, 4; Holyhead Re- serve, 3. SECOND HALF. Upon resuming it was seen that Hugh Wil- liams, the home centre-forward, did not re- turn, so that th homesters were obliged to finish the gID-e with ten men. They played the one-back game, James Evans going half. back, and O. Williams to the forward line. For same time the juniors had all the play, in fact they did everything but score, send- ing in shots from all directions and gaining several fruitLess comers. From a sudden breakaway Owen put the visitors still further ahead, scoring th-o fifth goal. Dick Lewis fouled omo of the visiting forwards in the penalty area, and from the resultant kick the visitors put on number six. Final: Menai Bridge, G; Holyhead Re- serve, 3. The game was of a most scrappy nature, thero Demg nothing to arouse enthusiasm. There was but a email crowd of spectators, and a large number of them left the ground before the finish of the game. It must be said that the homesters were severely handi- capped, and that on the whole they did not de.-j'i've to be beaten.
WELSH AMATEUR CUP. (SECOND ROUND.) STRENUOUS FOOTBALL AT CARNARVON. VICTORY AT LAST. (By "Vcrax.") Carnarvon 2 Llandudno o A well-contcsted game took place on Satur- day, when the Llandudno Amateurs once more opposed Carnarvon United. Referee R. D. Richards drew up the teams in tho following order:— CARNARVON UNITED: G. II. Jones; E. Hughes and R. Moroion Williams; Jack WiJ- ,iam, M. Herbert, and E. 11. Jones; R. H. Roberts, Ton Roberts, Walter Jones, II. Ro- berta and Johnny Jones LLANDUDNO: Stallard; J. H. Jones and Ben Morris; W. Evans, T. Johnson, and E. Pearson; John Williams, J. Brown, T. Wil- liams, R Davies, and Jim Williams. Carnarvon attacked right from the start, and immeddatcJy scoured a corner, whioh proved abortive. Retaliating, Bob Davies had a shot which went wide. Car- narvon advanced, and a scrimmage rook pjaco in front of the visiters' citadel, Stallard fisting out in grand style, a fruitless corner resulting. Midfield play followed, the advantage lying mostly with the homester. Johnny Williams got in a splendid shot from the left wing, and a rush on the line occurred, but no goal accrued. The home forwards swept down with a fine combined Tush. The ball was left with Hugh Roberts, but owing to the state of the ground at that point he slipped and missed his kick Tho visitors buckoo. up, and T. Williams and his confreres made several excellent attempts, but the defence proved firm; Tom Robert^ Herbert, and Walter Jones especially being conspicuous. ° FAST PLAY. A disputed "hands" gave rise to much un- necessary Comment on the part of the spectators. Things became warm, and in spite of the con- dition of the field good play was witnessed on the pa-t of Loth teams R. H. Roberts raced along thj right wmg, and made a very good at- tempt at scoring, the ball rising above the bar. R. H Roberts centred again, and Hugh Roberts put on the finishing touch by netting in splendid style. The Amateurs attacked vigor- ously in turn. Johnnie Williams passed to Brown who handed within the area, this allowing tha homesters to clear. Carnarvon continued to press, but Evan Hughes failed to score from a penalty; sending the ball right into Stalla.rd's hands. The Amateurs visited the other end, and a goal seemed imminent, but Bob Davies sent the leather too high. Both teams were well matched, but Carnarvon held the upper hand on the whole. Half-time: Carnarvon United 1, Llandudno Amateurs 0. SECOND HALF On resuming play Carnarvon were onco more in front of their opponents' citadel, but a oouple of corners conceded to them were not taken ad- vantage of. Thb homesters pressed, but the op- posing diefence proved; safe, Ben Morris being particularly reliable in this respect- Walter Jones had a good shot at goal, but the leather went wide. Carnarvon were again supreme, and it loked odds on Walter Jones adding another, but he m iscalculated. Several oorncirs were concoded to each team, but no advantage resulted. A good run down by Johnny Jones wa? witn; he crossed from the left wing t the right, and then R. H. Roberts put in the second goal for Carnarvon. Ben Morris, who was playing a good game, came within an ace of scoring from a free kick. No further points were reg'stered by either team. Both teams hammered away up to the end, when the soore stood: Carnarvon United 2, Llandudno Amateurs 0.
FRIENDLIES, LLANFA!RFECHAN RES. v. PEN- MAENMAWR RES. Played at Llanfairfedhan on Saturday in dull weather, before a fair crowd of spectators. Mr A. E. Pughe had charge of the game. Penmaenmawr winnrig th-3 teas kicked down the hill. Both teams pressed in turn. Coleman and Dick Taylor being cheered for brilliant footwork. Penmaenmawr forced a corner, but the ball went outside. A run up the field was then niade by the homesters, and W. Attertaa tried his luck with a great shot, whioh the Penmaenmawr goalkeejjer managed to clear. Firorn the goal kick the ball was worked back to the Penmaonmawr goal, Dick Jones having a fine chance to score, but, ta the disappointment of all, he placed the bail high over the bar. The next item of interest was a fine bit of work by Taylor, who was playing a grand game, along with W. J. Jones. Dan Jones, the full- back, experienced difficulty in kioking away. Advancing again tihe homesters scored through Dick Jones, amidlst much exaiitement. Immedi- ately afterwards tiliey again had' hard lines. W. J. Jones trying his luck from close range, the bail just going over the bar. Llanfairfedhan were now playing a good game, and G. O. Jones again found the net, to the delight of the crowd. The Llanfair men had several shots at goal, but failed to score. Just before 'half-time the Llanfair goal was bom- barded, Roase saving well. Half-time: Llanfairfech-an Res. 2, Penmaen- mawr 0. On resuming, Penmaenma-wr at once started to press, and had hard lines in not finding the net. Still keeping up the attack they kept Roose, the Llanfairfechan goalkeeper, busy for a short time, but he was not to be beaten. Fol- lowing this Llanfairfechan had a turn, but the ball was soon worked back again, Penmaenmawr scoring three goals within five minutes, tho scorers being Lunt, Lewis and Griffiths. Llanfairfechan were now playing for all they were worth. W. J. Jones looked dangerous, but ILLS shot was successfully negotiated. From a run down the field the sama player shot hard into goal: the Penmaenmawr goalie, however, just managed to clear. From the corner kick Cole- man again tried h's luck, but without success. Llanfairfechan were now pressing ha.rd to make matrers equal, and soon forced two corners in quick succession, but nothing came of them. Taylor was conspicuous for the homo team, and Lunt for the visitors. Final: Penmaenmawr R. 3, Llanfairfechan R. 2.
PENMAENMAWR v. COLWYN BAY CELTS. The above teaans met at PemnMamawr, last Saturday, on a muddy field. The weather'durdng the last woek transformed the field into a lake. The visitors sent up a strong team, while the homesters were not in muich humour to play the game at all, having understood that it was to be postponed. However, since the Celts came, the team faced thorn, and in less than ten minutes after kick-oil, Lunt had opened the score foir the homesters. This was fallowed by aarotlier goal, Sicor-cd by Arc3iie. Play was then transferred to the homesters' end, and E. R. Jones scored. Thus, at half-time, the scores stood at: Penmaenmawr, 2; Colwyn Bay Celts, 1. On resumption, the Cfilts mad-e -a rush upon the home goal, and a penalty was awarded them, which Ted Parry converted, in/to a neat goal. The homesters soon ran up, and Lunt, from the night, &emt in No. 3. The visitors, in turn, equalised, through Hywel Pritchard. About ten minutes before tho end, Charlie Sloatno sec)redfor the homesters. Final: PenmaeiLmawr, 4; CoI wyn Bay CV-'t-s, 3. Archie, in centre, did not work as well as in his own position. Morris, the con'trc-' forward, was mdissin-g, and it was plain to anyone who wiatdhcd the game that- tho inanu- heturer of those pot-shots was missing. The spectators were few, only some of the more enthusiastic having ventured on the field.
PENMAENMAWR v. COLWYN BAY CELTS. Plavedi at Penmaenmawr on Saturday. The ground, bcirrg' in a very bad staoo rendered good football impossible, and there -were but Very few spectators. In the first half Penmaenmawr scored twice through Will Lunt and R. T. Jono3, and D. R. J ova's scored onco for Colwyn Bay. Half-time: Penmaenmawr 2, Colwyn Bay Celts 1. Aftor the interval J. W. Lunt scored for tho homesters. Edward Parry converted a penalty for the Visitors. Sloan, however, put the home team further ahead. Before time was called Howel Pritchaid reduced the lead. Final: Penmaenmawr 4. Colwyn Bay Celts 3.
MATCHES ABANDONED. The heavy rains have resulted in the flooding of several of the football grounds, and Saturday's fixtures were consequently considerably inter- fered with.

SUGGESTED WELSH FOOTBALL LEAGUE. (To the Editor of the "Pioneer.") Six, What has been long canoo far is ø. Welsh Senior Football League. The Combination this year is much below the aver- age of what it iioed to be, and interest in it has materially decreased. I think a move- ment shouJd be originated by the officials of the now flourishing North Wales Coast League to make three divisions, and I would 1 suggest that the following clubs should be placed in the respective divisions: — Division I.-Bangor, Bagillt, Carnarvon, ConnaJi's Quay, Denbigh, Greenfield, Holy- head Swifts, • Holywell Vies., Druids, Chirk, Buckley Engineers, Llandudno Amateurs, Mold, Rhyl, and Saltney. Divisiota II.-Bangor Reserve, Colwyn Bay, Glasinfryn Swifts, Holyhead Reserve, Llan- uudno Junction, Llanberis, Llanrwst, Llechid Swifts, University College, Pwllheli, Penmaen- mawr, and Portmadoc, Division III.-B,ettwsyeoed, Llandudno Re- serve, Junction Reserve, Tx-egarfch Cclts, Llan- fairfechan, Menai Bridge, Colwyp Bay Celts, Rhyl Ceilts, Deganwy Rovers, and Ponmaen- inawr Reserve. Although this is only a suggestion, I fail to &ee why it could not be carried out, and thus creato muoh more interest in footbaill matters in North Wales. I shall be glad to see ooiue enthusiastic supporters of the game expressing their opiniool of this p-roposal in your oorirespondeince -oliinLus.-I am, etc., FOOTBALL WELLWLSHER.

CARNARVON GOLF CLUB. ANNUAL MEETING. SUCCESSFUL YEAR. The first annual meeting of the club was held at tihe Institute, Carnarvon, to-day week, when there was a largo atten- dance. The statement of finances showed a bal,anc.e in halud at too end of the year of £ iQ 158 lid. The committee's report was then presented by tbo captain, Mr R. Newton. The report stated that the arrangement for family tickets was very well received, 30 tickets being taken up, as against 83 for genulemcn, and 37 for ladies and youths, 'l'hoy regretted that a number c/f gentlemen who agreed to become members of the club at it, inception failed to comply with tine tacit undensta.nding to pay their subscriptions, and this had resulted in a substantial loss to their revenues. Tho committee felt exceptionally satisfied with the item of Green Foes for the year, nearly £28, which exceeded the estimate of receipts by about £ 18, and the committee hoped that the coming year would again show a still greater increase in the re.ceipts from visitors. The experiment with tho new coumse had turned out success fully, end ar- rangements would shortly be made to secure three holes of about 400 yards in Length. If required, it would be found possible to ex- tend the course to 12 holes for the coming summer, and before then, the now mower would lie placed to operate on the flats so as to remove to a great extent the cause of com- plaints mad>& Last summer as to balls being lost. ° The club's first smmmer meeting was a pro- nounced success. The nnmbeir of entries was about 130, the priae fund amounted to .£11 8s Gd, and the actual cost to the club was £1 9s. Through the efforts of the ladies, the catering refreshments, which were much appreciated resulted in a profit. It was to be noted with regret that the club was still without a president, and it was to bo hoped that this state of affairs would be remedied with as Little delay as possible. Reference should be mad-e to the very successful social arranged by the club a short time ago, as a result of which it was almost certain that they "would shortly have the pleasure of meeting each other again at a similar re- union. The club's thanks were due to the auditors, Messra G. H. Humphreys and A. H. Richards, for the efficient manner with which they discharged their duties.

LLANDUDNO COUNTY COURT. PENMAENMAWR PROPERTY SALE DISPUTE. LADY SUCCESSFULLY CONDUCTS HER OWN CASE. AMUSING LLANDUDNO LODGING-HOUSE CASE. To-day we& "before liia Honour Judge Moss and the Registrar (Mr R. S. Chamberlain), Mrs Violet Jones, widow of the late Dr. Jomwo, who fonrueriy lived at Dwy- gyfylchi, but now of Hygrove, Minster-worth, Gloucester, brought an action against S. H. Roberts, draper, etc., of Cambrian Buildings, Peawiiai&n maWir, for the recovery of £ 33 said to be due for land severed from a plot of ground conveyed to her and £ 17 on account of expanses, leg-al and otherwise. Tihe plaintiff conducted her own case with no small skill, whilst tho defendant was re- presented by Mr W. J'. Lias (instructed by Mo: J. W. Hughes, Conway). Plaintiff stated that on January 3rd, 1900, the defendant, Roberts, conveyed to her, for £ 315, land and premises known as Caeoyd, Dwygyfylchi, Ptmnmenmawr, in fee simple, the premises containing 1 rood 26 perches. The conveyance made reference to the pre- vious title deeds and the pLan of the con- Vey which she now produced, showed oloatrly the land conveyed. There was no evidence that any portion of the plot she pur- chased had been deposed of, neither was there amy disclosure of such a transaction. The plot extended behind Horeb Congregational Chapel. Early last year, whido in the vicinity, slid vdsited the. &pot an,d noticed that a new schoolroom had been erected behind tho chapel on her ground. She confirmed her impnession. on returning home on rei'errinf to the diood. and plan. bho then wrote Ro- berts on January 27th, and She put in copies of the coff-respoindencc, which subsequently took place between her&alf, Roberts, ajid the defendant's solicitor. Counsel: The point of tie whole thing re,ally is whether this plan is wrong. It 18 certainly peculiar that Mr Worthwigton, a solicitor, who was a partner with Mr R'. D. Darbishire, and was nesponsiible for tiie con- veyance, should have made a mistake if in fact the plain tiff's plan ;is correct. Plaintiff complained that an application had been made for an adjournment of the proceedings on the ground that she had re- fused detail's which had, as a matter of fact, been ail supplied, Counsel: That was a tribute to your lco-al knowledge, Mi's Jones, if I may sav so. In answer to (the Judge, Pialaitiff "said the land in question measured 273 square yards, and she based tho £ 33 mentioned in the claim as being one-sevenrtih of the whole cost, £ 230. The balance was on account of legal, travelling and other expenses incurred in oomiec.Uon with the case. Cross-examined: She lived at Ilafcdyrhiw, near the plot of land in question from 1897 till ±91)0, and she could' .see the ohapel and the boundary waiilss from Hafodyriiiw. She was aware of certain wall3 between the chapel and her proponty, but she did not recollect one of k* 1898—sho was not sure of tno date, isho had made no claim against the chapel trustees because she thought it- bast to settle this matter first. S'he had, however, written to the trustees. She had not brought tnat clann before because her husband had been HI, and they had been travelling alxmt lar^e.lv Moreover, she was ANXIOUS TO GET A BUYER for tho land, and it was a fortunate thing now that she had not obtained one, otherwise she wouidi have been put in the position of makinp- a false sale under the plan she now prtxhiced° the chapei school was built early in 1909 <=o iar as she knew; at any rate, that was 'the iirst time sho knewof Ít. The sale with Ro- bercs ha.d been partly negotiated for her by Mr Wort-all, formerly surveyor to the Pen- maenmawr Urban District Council. If Mr Worrall knew that -that piece of land had been corn-eyed to the chapol trustees, he never told her about it. Mr WorralJ. merely took a mes- sago from her to lioborits inquiring1 where the property was for sale, and his price for it. Counsel: la it not common knowledge that thia kund behind the chapel belonged "to the ohapel before you bought, Ca-ccyd' Plaintiff: If it was common knowledge it was not my knowledge, and I would not take common knfu.wledg-en to bo a correct descrip- tion of a conveyance. What appears in the con- veyance the, deeds and plane is what constitutes the^property, and not "common knowledge." For the defence, counsel pleaded at the out- set that, the plaintiff was put out of court, by t-iie Statute of Limitations because she had been over nine years in making* her claim. His Honour replied' that having regard for the faoi that correspondence bewee-n the parties upon the. matter commenced in January of 1909, and had gone on at int-ervals ever since then' he did not think counsel's contention, was a good one in law. S. H. Roberts, the defendant, said he acquired Caecyd from Mr Watson Jones, who purchased it in 1895 from Mr R. D. Darbishire. Witness had originally a mortgage of £100 upon the pro- perty when it was held by Mr Watson Jonos. On November 16th, 1897, Mr Watson Jones sold 273 square yards of the land to the trustees of the chapel for Is a yard, and Mr Worthington, a solicitor, who was a partner with Mr R. D. Darbishire an Manchester, was responsible for the oonveyance. Witness related the subsequent transaction between himself and Mr Worrall acting ern behalf of the plaintiff. He said he signed the conveyance at Mr Worall's request, but he did not read it before doing so. Witness was not represented by a, solicitor at tho sale. Ho heard nothing more about the matter until last year, when ho got a letter from Mrs Jones. The land in dispute was not worth more than 6d a yard beoause thero was no approach to it except from the mountain. Plaintiff: If the land is worth 6d now why did you charge me 2s for it?—Of course, I give tho price at the present state of the market. Then the value i gone wn to that extent? -Bound to have done. Thomas Roberts, builder, Bcrthlwyd, Dwygy- fylchi, and a trustee of the chapel, denied that the land in quostion belonged at any time to Caecyd. His Honour gave judgment for the plaintiff ,for £ 30 and costs, and remarked that he did not think the defendant had met the plaintiff ais she should have been met. He commented upon the fact that no solicitors had appeared on either side during the sale between Roberts and the plain- tiff, and remarked that "the usual result" had followed an the shape of the present litigation. LLANDUDNO'S APARTMENT LETTING AMUSING EVIDENCE. Elizabeth Thomas, of Toronto Villa, Winlaan- avenue, Llandudno, sued Miss Minnie Williams, a Manchester professional vocalist, for JE4 13s 5d, said to be due for the use of apartments and certain vegetables supplied. Mr J. J. Marks (Messrs Marks and Marks, Llandudno) for the plaintiff, said the plaintiff was a lodgimg-house keeper. Miss Williams and the defendant, accompanied by a Mrs Massie and a gentleman, went to Toronto Vna on Augus-t 18th, seeking the use of a sitting room and two bedrooms for one week only. Plaintiff said she could not her rooms for less than two weeks, certain at that time, as there was such a demand for rooms. Eventually it was agreed that they would take the rooms for a fornight at E2 ids per wock for rooms and attendance. As would bo seen from Clio evicl-enoe after tak- ing the rooms, they complained of a flea and also of tlie distance of the house from the town. Plaintiff denied- that tlhere were any fleas in her houfe., and that if there were any now they must have been brought there by her new guests. After being- in -the- house four or five days they loft, offering to pay for one week, an offe,r which was refuged by MM Thomas. It N-as believed that the party remained at Llandudno after the day they left Toronto. Mrs Thomas had kept the hou:o for four years and never before had there been a complaint against the house in any shape or form. The defcnda-nt had paid L2 33 3d into court. I Mrs Elizabeth Thomas, the plaintiff, gave evi. ieneo bearing out her solicitor's statement. She icknowled^od tihat when bbe firt oomplaiiit was made the maid found one flea in one of the bed* rooms. Cross-examined by Mr Osborn (Messrs Porter, Amp'hlett and Co., Conway, Colwyn Bay, and Llanrwst) who was for the defence: Witness used to make the bedsi herself, and ahe had eeea only one flea. She looked- for them because the gentleman complained. Slho never saw the twelve fleas caught by the gentleman. She in- dignantly dienied' that tdiere were fleas in the cur- tain. She ha4 a new box-mattress bed down- stairs, framed with wood. "A thing that would harbour bugs and things of that sort?" questioned Mr Osborn. Mr Marks said he had never neard of that ground of complaint- before. Mr Osborn: But there wore bugs there. NVe can prove it. Witness, further interrogated, said she had never received complaints of insects before. Sh saw no trace of iiLaeoo powoier on the beds. She never had! any trouble with a Mrs Preston who occupied rooms with her at one time. She never told Miss Williams that Mra Preston said she hadl caiugbfc six fleas there on one occasion. By Mr Marks: To-day was the first occasion for her to hear the allegation about bugs. Miss Maggie Jones, Bangor, a relation of the defendant said she half been staying at Toronto Villa for a montJh last summer, and she neither saw nor heard of fleas. The place was very clean. Miss Williams, the defendant, said that 0-1 the first night of her stay at Toronto Villa she never slept all night "because of the fleas." It was also very rough, a high wind prevailing. The bed, was uncomfortable. She had a bite OIl tine neck whidh left a b-ister, which she now believed to be from a bug. She complained- to Mrs Thomas on Monday moaning about the fleas; she had, no acquaintance with bugs up to then. Mrs Thomas went upstairs with her and Mrs Massie showed her crushed flc-as-twelvs in a wasn-basm. and others on the wall. Mrs Tho-as said she would put a bed in anotihor bedroom, but witness said that would never do at all. Witness ctiSinfocited1 herself and w&bod the plaoe. with Sanitas. She. r,ut. some camphor in her gentleman friend's bed but he was a Russian, and fleas apparently liked Russians; he oouid not sleep owing to the fleas. By Mr Marks: On tho day before they left sfie and her friends &at cn the Conway sliore, but it was not true that Mr Antonoff, heir friend, went to bed straightway afterwards in. his onothes. Witness had comfortable rooms at Llanddulas before coming to Llandudno. They went hoaic after leaving Mrs Thomas, and re- turned subsequently to see her solKitor. Mrs Jean Massie, of West Didsbury, said that. that^while staying with the defendant at Toron- to Villa., she noticed tihat the rooms were very dirty, and whom they took possession tJhe. beds vm. r(-, not made. When Mr P r- to- noff came down, next- morning he said, "I have been bit-ten alive. You will find them aiil in the wadh-basin." They wont upstairs and counted twelve drowned fleas in the wash-bowl, and on investigating she found a bug on the counterpane on tho bed. There were fleas on the blankets and all over the bed. She pushed up the window, and found two le:a.s on the wall which she killed. Carrying her skirt tightly round her, witness went downstairs, and found on her skiirt two fleas, which 8ho caught in Mra Thomas' presence. Croso-examined: They bought Jayes' fluid, Sainita.s, Keatings' powder, and six packets of camphor to uao in the beds and the bedrooms -but there "was no improve- His Honour: Diid Joyics' fluid have any effect?—No; they were still bad. Mr Marks: The fleas wore in possession (laughter). Witness added that when ehe gc'c home oil clearing- out her portmanteau in the. garden I a bug fell out. She put it in an envelope (.Laughter)—and took it to a friend, wHo told her it was a bug (renewed laughter). Mr G. Antonoff, who said he was a. Russian student at the Manchester University, in describing his experiences at Toronto Villa, said lie nev^r slept in his clothes; bo wo-ro pyjamas. He was very far from sleeping because he felt a sensation not very pleaj&o-nt nor ea.sy to describe; he was itching ail over his body. On M-ondoy night he was hunting z, fleas nearly ail night, and there wc,r.e so many that he tried to drown them Ln the water. But malny of them escaped (laughter). Ho eventually decided to leave as he could not stick it any longer. He saw nothing but fleas. Mr Marks: Did you Leave on onday mom- The Judge; No, he could not have left on th.o Monday, because on the Monday night he says he was "ON THE WARPARTH" (laughter). Replying to Mr Marks: Witness said lbo was tnere on tho following Tuesday, Wednes- day and Ihursday nights, m ooneccjiienco of & rearrangement of tho sleeping accommoda- tion. It was not improbable that he lay on the bed in his clothes after lie had beem sitting and Laying about the Conway Shore. Mrs ELizafbeth VVilliajEs, mother of the d.e- fendant, gave additional evidence. His Honour adjourned the case till the January court, at Colwyn Bay, so that tha plaintiff's maid could be oalkd.
LLANDUDNO COUNTY SCHOOL. A SCHOLARSHIP GRIEVANCE. The governors of the Llandudno County School hekl a meeting on Friday, Mr T. W. Griffith, Chairman, .presiding. Mr E. R. Davies, sooretary of education for tihe county, eent a letter to tho effect that tlMG Local Government) Boiard were now disposed to grant longer terms far tihe repayment of loans for the erection of edhool buildings, and Mr Davies was asked to apply for a town ofi forty years, in wnieih to repay the loan for the now bujldrrigis of tho Lla-jxiiiHino County School. The, Headmaster, Mr J. M. Ardhw T'n.om.)On. said he thought the t-jma had come wten tlie governors should approach tine trustees of the R:ohard Owen Scholarship, HrKbrwitidl one boy every year Ï3 awarded a scholarship tenable at the University College of North Wales, Bangor, from tihe; town of Llandudno, with a view to a separate examination beting held each year for the selection of the boy to reoeivo this acltoiojr- ahip. At praieTit, Mr Archer Thomson ex- t/*ained, t:ho edholars'hiip was awarded cn the re- sults of the entrance scholarship and exhibition examination of the University College, and the unfa.irmetu of that t,o Llandudno boys lay in h.e fact that should a Llandudno boy qualify for one of the College, ecbolar^!iip<3 loC would not receive it, but would be given t:ho Richard Owen sahclarship. Thus, Llandiudno boys were likely to be deprived of tihe opportunity of competing; for tho schoLardhips open to the ether boys of the county. 'l'rN) Richard Owen Scliolarahip is int,onded exclusively for Llandudno bovs, w'no also 'have the right to sha,M in the educational ad.-antages open to the rest, of the ocunty. and, in the event of a Llandudno candidate taking such a place in the College examination as to entitle him to one of tho College prizes, it Should ba awarded to him and the Richard Owen Ex- hibition should go to the next Llandiudno boy of sufficient merit on the list. To Bceure this i-u independont examination would appear to be d3- sirable. The governors resolved to ask the Ricnard Owen trustees, four of whom icpeesent- 1 dud no, two the County EJluoati-oll and one the College- authorities, to arrange or an iridejKmdent. examination in May each year. It was reported that tho number of gcthcllam Oil tih. regi-sbeir of the County School now was 114, an increase' of 25 per 0Ont. upon the number last scission.

rontinuaiiy itroubling the Bangor defence. Bangor's third goal fallowed one of Dargie's "GOALKEEPERS' BEWARE sliobs, Sam GniBths doing well to ignore the can- non ball. Tiiet. Wright had a pot. but his shot had not the beef behind it that its predecessor had. Ait amusing incident now occurred directly in front of the Denbigh goal, and it set tho spectatrrs loaring. Feet were flying in all direc- tions, anywhere but near the elusive ball, and tho players skated abcut in the mud as though they liked it. After this interlude Alfy Thomas J a try on his own, and a goal seemed im- tvhen up jumped Sam Griffith, and n.r .lo a magnificent clearance. But lie was poweries3 against the shot that followed—one of Dargio's specials, which crashed into the net just be- neath the bar, and' thus the Bangor skipper per- formed the hat trick with one ot tho finest goals seen on the Bangor ground. Shots afterwards ruined en Sam Griffiths, who on one occasion cleverly feinted whilst on his knees, and deceived Hughie Davics, who was rushing at him. Meet- ing a pass- from E\ans, Dargie sent the ball through a ruck of players into the net—No. 5, four of which were the captain's. Half-time Bangor 5. Denbigh nil. SECOND HALF. Early in the second half E. E. Davies kicking the ball through D. J. Thomas' legs, gav.) Stanley Hughes a chance, and this player scored, but he was offside. Hwfa Williams had to leave the field owing to an injury. From a corner ac- curately placed by Oliver, Dargie almost headed through after a big jump in the air, and Wright sent in a casual tort of shot, which, to the sur- prise of the spectators, landed in the net. The custodian must have been unsighted to allow the point to be registered. Wright followed this suc- cess up with one of the be;t shots of the after- noon, Sam Griffiths making a fine save. Wright tried another, and again Griffiths was in champion form. E. E. Davies aried the run of the play slightly by forcing a corner, from which nothing tangible occurred however. Then Dargie bored n- I his way through the Denbigh defence, winding up with a terrific grounder, which did not comlJ off, however. Wright, after playing to the gal- lery, suffered the inevitable—he was robbed, and a glorious chanco wa, thrown away. Stanley IIughe3 came off top in a sprint with D. J. Thomas, but "D. T." nullified his final effort. The spectators were next disgusted with a bit of nonsense between D. T. Davies and D. J. Thomas, who, instead of sending the ball down the field, passed' it to each other. Spectators don't pay.to see tins sort of thing. Dargie put on Bangor's seventh point, the custodian only managing to divert the ball slightly before it entered the net. and Oliver scored No. 8. STANLEY HUGHES' ORPHAN GOAL. The usual s»econd-half slackness came over the Bangor team with ths result that Stanley Hugh got through. First of all he dodged D. J. Thomas, then D. T. Davies, and worked liis way up to Ted Owen. It was odds on Ted clearing, but Stanley made a sudden turn which took the custodian off his bearing, and he scored Denbigh's first goal. It was a well-deserved goal, for Stanley worked hard for it. Sam Griffiths, at the other end, added to his laurels by saving an eLevat-ocl shot which would have beaten nine out of ten custodians. E. E. Davies tried to work his way through the home defence only to be abruptly pulled up, but Staaaley Hughes went one better, and he galloped along 00 fast that the Bengor defenders let: him go..His final shot, however, cannoned egainst Ted, who smothered the ball, and then cleared. Final: Bangor, 8; Denbigh, 1.
