She came of an old and esteemed Wrexham family, being a daughter of the late Mr and Mrs Charles Davies, and was a life long resident of the town. She and her family have always taken the greatest interest in public affairs, and she will be greatly missed, particularly in Church circles. The sympathy of her many friends is extended to her grown-up family, of two sons and two daughters, in the.r bereavement. Tiie funeral, a private one, took place on the 14th, at the Borough Cemetery. Wreaths were sent by the following:—Her sorrowing children ; Daisy and Trevor ; Mr Houghton, GateneJd ; Mr a/jd Mrs H. Samuel and family ; Mr ami Mrs Ishmael Evans and family; Doris and" Mary Fletcher; Mrs Loxham and Margery ; Mr and Mrs Llew Davies ; Peggy and Cicely Rowland ; Hubert Francis ; Mr and Mrs A. W.

A very largely attended meeting was held at the New Chmch House, on the 8th ult., the Vicar presiding, to discuss rules, &c, and appoint a Committee to conduct the affairs of the House. John Price, J. W. Taylor, H. 0. Armstrong. J. P. Padmore, H. Miller, and T. J. Parry, together with the assistant clergy. The Vicar was appointed Chairman of Committee, and Mr Frank Hatch Secretary At a meeting of the Council of the North Wales Miners' Association on the 6th ult., a letter was read from Mr Downes Powell, resigning the appointment of solicitor to the Association, as it was his intention to go to the bar. and stating that Mr Wynn Evans had resumed his practice as a solicitor at WTrexham, and applied to be re-appointed solicitor to the Association. There were two other applications, from Mr LI. Kenrick, Coroner, Ruabon, and Mr J. B. Marston, WTrexham. The delegates decided to re-appoint Mr Wynn Evans, who had held the appointment for many years previously to his leaving Wrexham for London. -If British people would buy goods made by British Labour, they would help to employ British workers, .-ave Briiish homes, comfort British wives, and feel Briiish children. The great British Stores spend fifty millions sterling every year in Germany and America on goods which used to be made in England before Protection developed German and American industries, and Free Tiade destroyed British industries.. Even the workhouses and public asylums supported by British ratepayers often specify foreign goods in the forms for tender they issue to contractors, and refuse to allow British goods to be substituted. Hundreds of thousands of pounds of the ratepayers' money are scandalously spent in foreign goods, while the British manufacturer pleads in vain to be given a chance. This is one of the gravest scandals of the age, and the next is the apathv of English voters. The rules were adopted, and the following Committee appointed : Captain Clieve, Dr. Drinkwater, Messrs W. J. Fletcher, J. B. Bunston, E. LI. Rogers, Edwin Hughes, Mrs Webber, widow of the Chief Constable of Flintshire, and her daughter, Miss Nora Webber, have left for India, where they intend to take up their residence.
