Mr. Allen Lettsome, A.P., officiated at the ceremony, at the close of which a reception was held at Min Nant, the happy pair subse- quently leaving for Manchester, where the honey- moon is to be spent.

I An interesting wedding was solemnised in the Calvinistic Methodist Church, Regent-street, Wrexham, on Saturday, the contracting parties being Mr. Herbert Lloyd, youngest son of Mrs. Robert Lloyd, Rhosymedre, and Miss Elisabeth Hughes, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. David Hughes, Minafon, Llangollen. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Stanley Buekley, of Cefn. The bride was attired in a tailor-made navy costume, with hat to match, and wore a gold chain and pendant, the gift of the bride- groom. She was attended by Miss Mary Grace Thompson as bridesmaid, who wore a gold brooch, the gift of the bridegroom. The duties of best man were discharged by Mr. George Griffiths. After the ceremony, the bridal party adjourned to the Westminster Hotel, where luncheon was provided. The happy couple left later in the day for Southport. Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd have been the recipients of numerous and valuable presents, includiag a very pretty oak cabinet and fountain pen, the gift of the workmen of Messrs. Dennis & Co.
LLANGOLLEN SMITHFIELD. A SPLENDID CLEARANCE. The second store sheep sale of the season was held at Llangollen on Tuesday, in conjunction with the usual sale of fat and store stock, Messrs. Jones & Son conducting a highly suc- cessful sale. There were very large entries in each department, and a good all round clearance was effected. The majority'of fat cattle changed hands. Dairy cattle, of which there was quite a large number, made very high prices. A few of the best figures realised were: Dr. F. A. W. Drinkwater, 129 15s.; Mr. Hughes, Ty Newydd, S23 and £21; Mr. Thomas, Carrog, £21 12s. 6d. Mr. Jones, Vron Newydd, £ 21 10j., £18 and 118 lbs.; Mr. Jones, Rhospengwem, £17 2s. 6d. Many others up to 117. Quite a feature of the sale was the exceptionally large number of store cattle on offer. Several large consignments of strong store bullocks were sent, but only a moderate clearance was effected. Yearling bul- locks and heifers met a keen demand, very few being returned unsold. There was a very large entry of store ewes, wethers and rams, and again in this department there was an excellent trade, a consignment of Welsh ram lambs from Capt. Best, Vivod, quickly changed hands and left many buyers unsupplied. Three of them realised 15 158. £4 12s. 6d. and 14 bs. the remainder from £3 to X4. Many other rams made from Mis. to 70s. There was soaie keen competition for the store ewes and very few out of an excep- tionally large number failed to change hands. Fat and store piga also made good prices, the latter keeping up well for the time of year. The next sale will be held on October 12th.

I LLANGOLLENS QUESTION
LLANGOLLEN'S QUESTION. The prcof was Llangollen proof, and Llan- gollen had confidence in a neighbour's word. But there was still a question—would the cure prove lasting? A reassuring answer is given here by a Llangollen resident. On July 25th, 1912, Mrs. W. Williams, of 6, Cross-lane, near the Parish Church, Llan- gollen, said Sometimes I could not lift my hands to my shoulders for rheumatic pains. Every change in the weather seemed to affect me, and I had aching pains across the kidneys. I was also subject to dizziness and headaches, and the water was disordered. I am pleased to say that since taking Doan's backache kidney pills I have been a great deal better. I think Doan's pills a splendid kidney medicine, and if I get a return of the omplaiac I shall certainly use them again. I recommend Doan's pills heartily. (Signed) (Mrs.) W. WILLIAMS. On December 4th, 1914-OVER TWO YEARS LATER-Mrs. Williams said I have had a splendid health for some time, and I never fail to recommend Doan's pill* that beneithod me tty." Much of the rheumatic pain that comes in damp weather is the work of uric acid crystals left in the system by weak kidneys. Doan's backache kidney pills are successful iu such cases because they act quickly on the kidneys, pro- moting a copious flow and eliminating the mischievous uric acid poison. 'Ihis remedy con- tains no harmful ingredients whatever, and is safe for men and women, old and young. Price 2/9 a box, six boxes 13/0; of all dealers, or from Foster-McClellan Co., 8, Wells-street, Oxford-street, London, W. Don't aek for back- ache or kidney pills,-ask distinctly for Dom's backache kidney pills, the same as Mrs. Williams had. 12
