At present Mr. Serraillier is leading with six and a half games out of eight, whilst Mr. Trenchard has temporarily fallen back somewhat, and stands now in the ranks with a number of players who have lost three points each, although they have not played an equal number of games.

The peaceful battle was raging all last week at the Craigside Hydro, Llandudno. The fight in the various tournaments commenced on Monday evening, and was expected to conclude last Saturday, but the termination has been deferred till this week. * In the Cup Tournament there are eleven entries, and this is a strong tournament, although Mr. H. E. Atkins, who was expected to compete, is absent. The players are : Messrs. Burn and Bellingham, the Rev. John weakly afterwards. For instance, 17...B to K5 was bad, as this bishop got pinned, and after the following exchanges Black remained with an isolated KP, too far advanced to be eventually supported. From the seventeenth move onwards Black played feebly—20 taking the open Q file, nor was the exchange of qu all that need be said about it.

Being thus secure from any incursion on that side, there was nothing more to be hoped for White but a draw. THE PRINCE OF WALES AND THE CHILDREN.
