WAR GUILD. I The collection of articles for the above was held on Jane 3rd. by the Hon. Mrs. Best in Mfs, W. Best's absence. The following were brought I in:— 10 shirts 17 handkerchiefs I I 18 prs, of sooks 9 prs. slippers. As Mrs. Best is only just home none of these have yet been distributed. While in London she has visited the offices of the British Red Cross Society, the French Red Cross Society, Queen Mary's Needlework Guild and Queen Alexandra's Field Force Fund, to ascertain what things are now most needed, and if there is any urgent need at all. She has found a great need exists and a great falling off of work bas taken place every- where. For the hospitals they ask for Union fliunel pyjamas, calico nightshirts, bandages, towels, slippers, handkerchiefs. For the men on active service, socks, khaki colour shirts (flannel, or cotton) this enables them to remove their tunics. sun flaps for their caps, and dark handkerchiefs The field force fund are also collecting warm woollies again, ready for next winter. Mrs. Best Twhooe llies a ;vr" Chubb to show the patterns for slippers and some flaps, and to give out materials for her, to anyone who will ask for them. Mrs. Best would be so glad if some new workers would come forward and if they realised the urgency she is sure no hands would be idle. The next collection will the first Thursday in July. I DENBIGHSHIRE VOLUNTEER I REGIMENT. The Lord Lieutenant of Denbighshire (Colonel Cornwallis West) presided over a meeting of the Executive of the newly-formed Denbighshire Volunteer Regiment, at Chester, on Monday. The Provisional Committee submitted the con- stitution of the new regiment, which had been approved by the Central Association of Volunteer Training Corps. For the present, Wrexham and Colwyn Bay are the headquarters for east and west of the county, but when several battalions are formed the question of central headquarters will be reconsidered. It was decided to start a county fund to defray the expenses of the headquarters staff, uniforms, rifles, &c., and also for the purpose of assisting corps in very poor districts. It was decided that each battalion committee should raise its own fund to meet its administrative expenses, and each corps having a district to itself will have its own fund. Colonel West, as Lord Lieutenant, accepted the position of regimental president and hon. commandant. Mr. D. McNicoll, of Derwas, Abergele, was appointed regimental treasurer, and he also undertook to carry out the secretarial duties pending the appointment of an adirtant., I ROYAL WELSH FUSILIERS IN FRANCE. I Captain J. R. Minshull Ford, 1st Royal Welsh Fasiliers (Staff Captain of the 21st Brigade), who lived at Oteley House, Wrexham, until the out- break of war, writing to a Wrexham correspondent with regard to the death of Lieut. J. B. Savage, 1st R.W.F., says: I much regret to say that poor Savage has fallen. I am writing to ask you to tell his parents how splendid he was. I am now on the staff but, as I dare say you have heard, I had the great honour of commanding the 1st Batt. R. W .F. for nearly five months from prac- tically Ypres in November until I was wounded at the great battle of Neuve Chapelle in March, so I am in a better position than anybody to tell you about him. He joined us soon after Christ- mas, and I quickly saw what a remarkably fine soldier he was. And when at Neuve Chapelle my adjutant, Captain Wood, was killed and my next adjutant very severely wounded in the space of seven hours, I sent for him with the utmost con- fidence and appointed him on the battlefield adjut- ant of the battalion. I was hit myself a few hours later, but my successor in command thoroughly endorsed, and we all thoroughly agreed, that there could not be a better man for the appointment than him. He was very brave, very hardworking and capable, and a serious and most right-minded man. We all feel that the 23rd has lost one of its most promising officers. I cannot tell you the details of his death.. He fell when the battalion were attacking, and when they were adding great lustre to their already great name. The 23rd crashed right through the German line, and though it left many of its sons on the field of honour they fell in the most glorious manner possible, and the name of the R.W.F. is on everyone's lips here. I hear he did not suffer and passed away in the hospital next day. I am asking for details to be sent to you. Please convey my heartfelt sympathy to his parents." » ■■
I WAR BREVITIES. I I The returns as to the number of recruits resulting from the Route March of the Denbigh- shire Territorials through the district are not yet available. Those from Llangollen, however, include two lads of fifteen years, whose patriot- ism was aroused by the visit of the military and who desire positions in the bugle band. News has been received in Oswestry of the death in action of Pte. James Granville Hughes, of the Queen's (Royal West Surrey,) Regiment. Private Hughes was the eldest son of the late Mr. C. H. Hughes, schoolmaster at Gobowen, Oswestry, and of Mrs. Hqghea, Ash-sille, Gobowen, and was 30 years of age. We are informed that a postcard fiss been received ftom Private Bobby Blaokburn, of Princess Patrioia's Canadian Light Horse, Who is now a prisoner of war in Germany, intimating that he is alright but detained. Private Black- burn was in the hot engagement in which the danadiansAuBerèdo severely some weekasipqe; )t and has-since beeh missing." Thp Grand Jury at the Denbighshire Assizes on We iueaday handed to the Judge the follow- ing presentment That, for. the successful prosecution of this war and for the safety of the Empire', it is absolutely necessary that all able- bodied unmarried men not required for industrial purposes be obliged tó. giiíe such services in a military capacity as may be demasded of them, and that the manufacture of munitions be put on such a basis by industrial mobilisation as may ensure a rapid and continuous supply." Both the sons of the late Mr. Joseph Nanson now hold commissions in the army. Captain T. Nanson, who was granted his commission in the Shropshire Light Infantry, a couple of months ago, is now stationed at Pembroke; and Lieut. Joseph Nanson was gazetted to the Seventeenth Manchester's last week and may join his regiment onSaturiay. There were fifty members of the Llangollen Volunteer Training Corps on parade on Saturday night, the latest recruits including Mr. J. 0. Davies, Chairman of the Llangollen Urban Council. On Thursday night the drill was in the Town Hall, there being a further increase in the number of members, and facilities have been arranged for rifle practise at the Tower Range, Mr. Aikin, Abbey Dingle, having provided the rifles. We understand that the staff at the local post office has been reduced, the depart- ment pressing that, where possible in positions held by men of army age, women should be employed or, if the work be such that women cannot perform it, the duties be entrusted to men over forty. This departmental decision has led to two of the auxiliary postmen being super- ceded. Mr. J. H. Davies represented Llangollen at the meeting of the Regimental Executive Committee responsible for the administration of the Denbigh- shire Volunteer Regiment, held under the presi- dency of the Lord Lieutenant, at Chester, on Mon day. The constitution of the regiment, as pre- pared by the Provisional Committee, was approved. It provides for the formation of existing Volunteer Training Corps with Battalions for East and West Denbighshire. Driver Postle 15th County of London Regiment (Transport Section), a native of Cefn, now serv- ing in the firing line in France, has distinguished himself by saving one of his comrades who got into difficulties whilst bathing hi the La Bassee Canal. The bather was about to sink for the third time when Postle dived in the canal and succeeded in holding him until others came to the rescue and both were brought to land. ——— j Allusions to the widow and family of Sergt. C. Carrington, killed in action in France, on May 9 th, appearing in last week's paper, require amend- ment. Mrs. Carrington, the widow, has four children, not two as stated—the youuger two (twins) having been born whilst their father was in France and he died without seeing them. Mrs. Carrington and her children are now living, in her own home, at Trevor-square, Llangollen. Upon enquiry we learn that Lieut. R. W. Rich- ards continues to make satisfactory progress at Wandsworth, but some time must elapse before he can be considered convalescent. The account of the gallant action that led "to his being wounded, recounted by Major A. E. Johnson, in command of the detachment of the 4th Royal Welsh which visited Llangollen, on Tuesday, has been received with widespread enthusiasm in the town.
SHEEP STEALING NEAR BALA. I On Friday a Bala, Morgan Lloyd, 31, farmer and sheep dealer, near Froagoch, Bala, was charged with stealing sheep, 64 of which hadt been recovered. Three charges were preferred against him for steal- ing seven couples valued at £ 7 10s., the property of Mrs. Thomas, Nantgaa nine couples and four barren sheep, the property of Mr. J. T. Richards. Tynddolucha, valued at agl4 139., and 39 yearlings valued at £ 12 9a. 3d. belonging to Mrs. Richards, Llaithgwm. Mr. J. R. Jordan, solicitor, prosecuted on behalf of the police. I From the evidence it appeaed that Superinten- dent Morgan, Bala, received complaintp of lost sheep from Nantgqe and Tynddol on the 29th'May. One Monday morning he found nine couples in a field near Bala, and after/inquiries with the pur- chaser, he arrested the prisoner. After the "usual caution he charged him, and he replied in Welsh, I have bought Nantgau and Tynddol uoha sheep all of them in Cwmtirmynaoh." The remainder of (the stolen sheep were foand at Blaennddbl, Festiniog Penlan, Llangollen; and Vachddeiliog field, near Bala. Mr. W. 0 Thomas, who manages Nantgau for his mother), Mr. J. T. R charda, Tynddol, and Mrs. Richards, Llaithgwm, deposed that the sheep found by the police were their property, and that they never sold them to* the prisoner. Mr. T. J. Roberts, butcher, Bota, Mr. J. Roberts, Frongaetell, Llanuwchllyn, Mr. W. Meredith Jones, Festiniog, and Mr. Henry Roberts, Hendredu, Bala inscribed the transactions between them and the prisoner, and said that the sheep were bought from him as an ordinary sheep dealer. The Bench committed Lloyd for trial at the Mer- ioneth Quarter Sessions in July. Bail was allowed —himself in te60 and- two sureties of f.30 each.

We are organizing an important meeting for next ■ Monday, June 14th, at 8 30, in: the Town Hall, 9 speaker Miss Brotchie, of Leamington, with Miss I m Micklebury, headmistress of Oswestry High School, m in the chair. Gentlemen are cordially invited to M™ attend. It will be a good opportunity for asking some practical questions with regard to Women's War Service, especially as I hear it is proposed to start a local register of women able to offer their service in any suitable direction. It would be interesting to know what encouragement local employers, especially farmers, would give to such a scheme. Per Mies L. Northwood, Vivod, 51, cash 3d.; Miss F.

RECRUITING AT LLANGOLLEN. 10 the Editor of the "Llangollen Advertiser." Sir,—I was present at the recruiting meeting at Llangollen and listened carefully to what was said. The Rev. Wm. Foulkes told us that Llangollen should send sixty more men to the colours, and the Chairman of the Urban Council, AldermarrW. G. Dodd and others, by their presence, supported this statement. Where are these sixty men to come from ? That they have not come so far I need scarcely pause to state. When we take the recruiting returns and the records of service rendered throughout the country what do we And ? The aristocraoy-that House of Lords at which so many stones were thrown at electioneering tilDes-has given ungrudgingly the' flower of its manhood to the service of the State. There has been no holding back amongst the great houses" they have borne them well in fight." The same thing applies to the working- classes. They have rallied magnificently to the call all over the land. The weak spot is with the middle claas-the "little men with little soula"- the class who supply speakers on publio platforms, and whose services in this respect cannot be said to go unrewarded, but who shrink from making the supreme sacrifice." There appears to me to be something not quite British in men of this kind taking part in recruiting proceedings and asking others to do for them what their own households should assist in doing. Admitting that our splendid aristocracy have tt* much to lose in this oonflict-we realise this and they are paying the price like Britons—what have < the poorer classes to lose in comparison-the men who do not own as much land as might comfort- ably be put in a cigar-box 1 The middle classes unquestionably have some. thing to lose-the men who own small tenements inhabited by workers and hold easy berths under Government or otherwise-they have a good deal to j lose; and yet they ask the working-man to do j ei their bit for them." I could not help thinking as I heard Mr. Foulkes talk of sixty men of that terrible Hill Sixty-and of the sons of those who, having made their money at J Llangollen and af whose doings we hear oaoasionally have not yet joined the colours. Their names are, so far, absent from your Roll of Honour and the poor man is looked to to swell the ranks and defend their middle-clasa privileges. I am told they have so much to lose-their professions, their promising careers and so forth. What of the best blood of the country mingling with that of the workers of the slums who constitute the quarter- of-a-million British casualties in Flanders? How about those who commanded life's, abundance full handed" have given their all? Have they made no sacrifioe f I hate writing letters to the papers, but if I can j stir up patriotic enthusiasm anywhere I feel it my duty to try.— V ery respectfully yours, duty to try.—Very respectfully yours, CYMRO.
