BRYN PYDEW. A FESTIVAL DAY.—The fact that little Georgie, the first-born to Mr. and Mrs. W. S. Wil- liams, Shop Newydd, Bryn Pydew, was one year old on Wednesday, was the means of imparting much pleasure to the children of the neighbour- hood. On Thursday, close upon one hundred happy-faced children gathered in the schoolroom of the chapel to enjoy a capital tea, prepared by Mr. and Mrs. Williams, and they were assisted by Mrs. Jones, Shop, Glanwydden Miss Jones, Cae Cynws Miss Gwennie Jones, Marian Miss Owen, Ty'nybryn Miss Alma Davies and Miss Gwennie Jones, Eilian Bay, Amlwch, and Miss Katie Jones. In the evening an excellent concert was held in the chapd, the proceeds of which went towards the funds of the cause. The bright interior was well filled with a delighted audience, and the proceed- ngs were conducted by the inimitable Deiniol Fychan," who was as witty as ever, and gave three gems from his repertoire of recitations that quite charmed the audience. In the absence of Dr. Morgan, of Conway, the Rev. T. C. Davies, of Holyhead, occupied the chair, and made a short and appropriate speech. The vocalists were Miss Williams, Beaumaris, Tegfan Roberts, Miss Ger- trude Hoskins, and Mr. D. Llew. Davies, whilst Mr. Rowland Williams, of Bodysgallen, was the accom- panist, and fulfilled his duties splendidly. A sweet voiced juvenile choir, under the conductorship of Mr. Isaac Jones, Marian, rendered two pretty items, Miss Gwennie Jones, Marian, presiding at the Car- negie organ. The concert was a great success, the singing and Deiniol's elocution being excellent. Tegfan was suffering from a cold, but, neverthe- less, he sang in most artistic style, and in the duets with Miss Williams, the pair quite captivated the audience. Equally successful were Miss Ger- trude Hoskins and Mr. D. Llewelyn Davies, who sang most acceptably, and, like the other duettists, they were encored for their duet. The concert was one of the very best held in Bryn Pydew, and the children in the audience were most exemplary in their behaviour. Mr. Thomas Williams, Penybont, Bryn Pydew, proposed a vote of thanks to all who had contributed to the success of the event, and wished long life to the little fellow that was the cause of the occasion. Mr. Owen Thomas, Peny- bryn, Bryn Pydew, seconded, and it was carried with acclammation. Mr and Mrs Williams after- wards entertained a large party to supper, which was much appreciated, and a happy day was brought to a close with a vote of thanks to Mr and Mrs Williams for their kind hospitality.

A YOUNG MAN'S HEROISM.—Tn the Bex- hill on Sea Observer for last week, there appears yn account of a disastrous fire which occurred at Arden, Bexhill-on-Sea, in which Mr. J. Blackburn is a lodger. It will be remembered that Mr. Blackburn for many years resided in Penmaen- mawr, where he was in the employ of the Holy- head and North Wales Gas Company, and re- moved to Bexhill, to take up the position of secre- tary of the Bexhill Gas and Water Co. The news- paper gives a graphic account of Mr Blackburn's heroism in saving Mrs Smith, an elderly lady of 70 years, and Miss F. M. Church, who were found almost suffocated in a bedroom on the second storey on the west side of the house. The account goes on to say Not saying a word to anyone Mr. Blackburn went quietly to work to effect a rescue." It is to him and to him alone that those ladies owe their lives. He risked his to save theirs." A gentleman in a crowd said that if a testimonial was raised to the gallant young man, I will head the list." A fund has been opened to reward Mr. Blackburn and his helpers for his gallantly in the rescue of three ladies (one a helpless invalid and the other a cripple) and also to recompense him, he having lost tho whole of his personal effects in the fire. In the newspaper appears an excellent portrait of Mr. Blackburn, and also a picture of him making his escape from the burning house after the rescue. We feel sure that our local readers will be pleased to learn of the heroic con- duct of this young man. ELECTION.—The Salem Debating Society on Thursday evening had a mock Parliamentary election.

Williams with being drunk and disorderly on the evening of Guy Fawkes day on the Castle Bridge, Llanfairfechan. The officer gave evidence of finding her drunk, and when he spoke to her she commenced to kick and bite. He had great diffi- culty in restraining her, and had to hold her to the ground. With the assistance of six local men, the defendant was taken to the police station on a handcart. She was very disorderly on the way, and the whole of the village was up." The defendant pleaded guilty, and it was proved that this was her sixth appearance before the magis- trates. A fine of 5s. and costs was imposed. PROPERTY EXCIIANGE.-Acting on behalf of Mr John Williams, Flint (trustee), Mr R. Arthur Jones, of the Estate Office, Conway, has success- fully negotiated the sale by private treaty of the handsome freehold block of business premises occupying Castle Bridge corner, Llanfairfechan, at the junction of the station and Chester and Holy- head roads. The site is recognised as one of the best in the town. The purchasers are Messrs Dunphy & Son, the well-known grocers, who have shops at Llandudno, Conway, Deganwy, &c., the purchase price being £ 1,500. Messrs Carter, Vincent & Co., of Bangor, were solicitors for the vendors. Some important structural alterations will forwith be made, which will further enhance the appearance of the building. AMUSING ANSWERS.—At the Bangor Police Court on Tuesday, Mr. Ellis, of Llanfairfechan, appeared on behalf of Mr. Massey, of Rock Ferry, in support of a charge of game trespass preferred against Humphrey Roberts and John Roberts, junior, of Llanfairfechan. Mr. M. Nee, Carnarvon, defended. During his cross-examination by Mr. Nee, Evan Jones, Mr. Massey's gamekeeper, gave some amusing answers. He admitted that Mr. Massey only owned a part of Llanfairfechan, not the whole of it. Later, he admitted that foxes were sometimes got on the land in question. And didn't one of the defendants in your com- pany shoot a fox there one day ?" said Mr. Nee.— "Yes." "And didn't he share the reward with you —"No"; "I shared the reward with him." (Laughter.)—Mr. Nee then addressed the Bench on behalf of the defendants, and proposed afterwards j to put them in the box. The Chairman however, ruled that as Mr. Nee had addressed the Bench, he could not now put his clients in the box. After some discussion the Bench decided that the charge was clearly proved, and fined each of the defend- ants 5s. and costs.

Festiniog Bankruptcy Court. A LLANRWST PARTNERSHIP. Messrs. Fletcher and Chisholm, who have traded in co-partnership at Llanrwst since the 3rd October, 1908, in the business of market gardeners, seedsmen, and auctioneers, and who were adjudicated bankrupts on. the 24th Sep- tember last, on their own application, appeared ,before the Registrar (Mr. Thomas Jones) at the Festiniog Bankruptcy Court on Tuesday. Mr. A. Lloyd Griffith appeared for the debtors. The Official Receiver's observations showed that the firm commenced with a capital of £ 40, each partner contributing £ 20, advanced to them by their respective fathers, and they were to draw any profits in equal proportions. Fletcher, who was brought up as a gardener or nurseryman, had lived at the shop since Feb- ruary last, before that for five months at Rhos Cottage, Rhuddlan, and previously at Seacomibe and Weston for some dime. Chisholm, who has had practical knowledge of gardening, had lived with his father near Llanrwst for four years. Neither had a business of his own until now. The bankrupts took a lease for eight years, from the 14th November last, of land whidh is called Cae'rgraig Nursery, Llanrwst, at the rent of r,35 10s. a year, where they planted a numbers, of young fruit trees. They also told the premises called Commerce House, at the rent of a year also a lock- up shop at Trefriw a garden there, and also another garden near Llanrwst. The bankrupts had young trees consigned to them, which they sold bty auction in different towns, and a con- siderable portion of the debts was for goods so consigned. Fletcher lived at the shop and had charge of the accounts, but he kept no proper books. They eaClh drew from the business at first I) a week, then 25s., then 30s., and for two weeks £2 a week, without any considera- tion as to whether the profits. permitted such withdrawals. The unsecured creditors were 32, for goods bought, ^348 14s. 7d; 11 for "printing and advertising, ^14 15s. 6d. 3 miscellaneous, £ 3 13s. 6d. total, ^367 3s. 7d. Six claims, amounting to r266 7s., exceeded Zio each. The deficiency was said to be l340 19s. 3d., the total liabilities, ^246; unsecured creditors being £ 367 3s. 7d. Thomas Myhell Fletcher, examined by Mr. Tobias, Assistant Official: Receiver, said with regard' to Commerce House, that since the last hearing the landlord had distrained on his mother's and his wife's goods, which were sold. In respect to the rent for the nursery, they supplied the landlord with goods on account, which went towards paying the rent. The firm rented a shop at Trefriw during the srummer season, but they had not paid any rent for it. Thev also rented a small: garden in the village at £ 2 per annum, but the rent had not been paid. They had some fruit to sell from the gardens of a local mansion (Llanrwst), a quan- tity of fruit and vegetables from them, which were not paid for. In the course of business the firm, planted a considerable number of young trees in the nursery which had not matured at the time of the bankruptcy. In order to sell shrubs and fruit trees they attended at various towns and sold them by auction and received the proceeds. He was the auctioneer. The ex- penses, between the railway journeys and hotels, were, however, large, with the result that the loss on many occasions was consider- able. He expected to make a profit by selling young treei, but the result had been unsatis- factory. It did not, however, follow as a natur- al result to. lose by such a system. At some town a good profit was made, while at others they sustained a loss. The Official Receiver It looks as if you were anxious merely to turoi the trees into money?— That is not so. At least, you will admit that it gives another person that aspect?—Considering the amount we paid, it certainly does not. It looks as if the transactions were for deriv- ing and obtaining goods by improper means. Mr. Lloyd Griffith objected to. the .question being put to the witness. The Registrar: It is not a question it is merely an observation. Examination continued Did yon inform the people from whom you got the goods that the money you had received for them was not col- lected?—-No. Do you keep a cash book?—'Not a proper one, as is usually identified as such. Considering the state of your business, did you think you could afford to draw out these sums?—At that time I thought so. Our bank book showed a credit balance. So because of the balance you drew the money?—Yes. As a matter of fact, the debts owing by the firm amount to £ 367 gross, leaving a deficiency of ^340?—Yes. You had been in business for only 11 months? —About that. So during that period your firm caused all this loss to the creditors?—Yes. In fact, you lived on your creditors?—It looks like it, but we worked very. hard. Was the furniture you used on the hire sys- tern?—Yes. You paid £4 16s. in respect to them?—Yes. You lived rent free and drew out your money weekly?—Yes. The Official Receiver The first account ren- dered was not accurate. The amended state- ment contains several accounts, but according to that the balance of payments corresponds fairly closely with the receipts. Continuing the examination, the Official Re- ceiver asked: You still kept drawing the money?—Yes, under the impression, however, that the business would improve. Have you paid rent to anyone?—Yes, rent for Commerce House and the nursery. Had your father any land by the nursery?— Yes. How much rent did he pay?-— £ 4. To whom was it paid?—To' me. What became of the money?-It was paid to the firm's account. You have a separate estate, I believe, an in- terest under the will of your late uncle. Have you any documents to show?—No, I gave you the names of the solicitors. Does your mother benefit by the will?—Not now. Who actually receives the money?—Some uncles and aunts. (Witness then gave the names and addresses of several persons of the surname of Cobb.) Did you take anything away from the shop or nursery after your application?—Nothing at all. There were some things belonging to youi wife, including a piano, that has been since seized by the landlord?—Yes. George H. Chisholm said that he had not been in business before he entered into partner- ship with Fletcher. He did not constantly in- spect the final's correspondence, as sometimes when he asked Fletcher for them he replied that they were upstairs. He used to see them event- ually, however. Fletcher said the accounts were kept all right. Had you any previous knowledge of auction- eering ?—.No. Whose idea was it?—Fletcher's. It was the chief arrangement of the partnership. Continuing, witness said that when he com- plained that the books were not kept Fletcher replied that it was all right. In a fortnight from the commencement of the partnership witness desired to withdraw from it, and wrote to Fletcher to that effect. He, however, over- looked it and contiruued the partnership. The Assistant Official Receiver said he would adjourn t4e examination, in order that Fletcher might submit an adjusted account, and in case I the balances were correct, he would feel satis- fied, and would not examine the debtors any further.
Geirionydd Rural District Council. REV. JOHN GOWER'S WONDERFUL REMEDY. The monthly meeting was held on Tuesday. Present: Rev. John Gower (chairman), Mr. J. Lloyd Morris (vice-chairman), Revs. J. Ll. Rich- ards and Henry Jones, Messrs E. VV. Hobert" Evan Williams, Edward Roberts, D. G. Jones, T. T. Roberts and R. T. E'lis, with the Clerk (Mr. Thomas Hughes), and Surveyor (Mr. R. H. Williams). The Council gave their consent to the proposed riverside improvement by the Llanrwst Urban riverside improvement by the Llanrwst Urban Council, conditionally that the Council give an undertaking to bear all the expense and keep the place in a proper s'ate < f repair at all times. The Vice-chairman raised an objection to the manner adopted of raising the water rates, and a heated discussion followed. Mr. Morris said he c would not press any resolution, but the matter was one for consideration in the future. It was decided to again write the County Council and ask them to receive a deputation rz Yspytty Ifan road. A petition was read from residents at Cwm, Penmachno, complaining of the bad state of the road from Carrog to Dregynwal. Mr E. W. Roberts described the road as in a fearful state, and to walk the same one was obliged to do so in mud and water to one's ankles. The Surveyor was instructed to do what he could with a. view of improving the part com- plained of. A letter was read from the Llanrwst Urban Council asking the Council if they were prepared to join in the erection of a Joint Isolation Hos- pital. The let,ter was left on the table. Referring to some cases of erysypelas which were reported by the Inspector, one of which had proved fatal. The Chairman said he was surprised to hear of these cases, and especially the one proving fatal. It was almost unknown in South Wales. He described how by a recipe which he had, he cured one suffering from that disease at Trefriw, and how that man went about the village curing all suffering from the malady by the same method.
Footbafig, WELSH SENIOR CUP. (FIRST ROUND PROPER.) CARNARVON v. BEAUMARIS. A one-sided game was played at the Oval, Carnarvon, on Saturday afternoon, in the pre- sence of a good gate, ending in a victory for the Canaries by 10 goals to 1. The teams lined up as follows — Carnarvon United G. H. Jones, goal; Evan Hughes and Albert Griffiths (captain), backs Johnny Griffiths, Mick Herbert ,and J. Williams, halves; R. H. Roberts, Tom Roberts, Walter Jones, Hughie Roberts, and Johnny Jones, for- wards. Beaumaris: Robert Humphreys, goal; T. J. Roberts and H. Smith (captain), backs; Dela- mere Jones, P. Lynch, and H. L. Williartrfs, halves; R. E. Header, Dick Lewis, Norman Thomas, Will Evans ,and E. Williams, forwards. The Beaumaris team were composed of local men. iSorne of them, the right full, and Jones, and the outside right, for instance, were triers. But there was no system in their playing, and the Canaries had nearly all the game to them- selves. Every one of the home team played well. Jones was all righrt in goal. The full-backs were not as reliable as usual. Griffiths was not so effective as is his wont. Evan Hughes indulged in selfish .play on many occasions, and very often lost the ball in consequenoe. The half-backs were simply grand, Herbert, if anrythirug, being the pick. All the forwards played well. Tom Roberts was full of resourcefulness.

Hockey. LLANDUDNO v. COLWYN. A very keen and interesting mixed match be- tween the above teams took place on the Llan- dudno ground last Saturday. Colwyn pressed from the start, and soon Davies, the visiting centre forward, opened the score. Prytce Jones and Gray added further points, and after closely contested play in mddfield Llaindudno put on two goals in quick succession. As the result of a well combined attack, Davies put his side still further ahead, and the score at half time stood 4-2 in favour of the visitors. Upon, resumption the visitors overwhelmed Llandudno, and added three more goals. Credit is due to the Colwyn defence, which played a sterling game, and re- peatedly broke up the combination of the home forwards before they could reach the shooting' area. For Llandudno Bone at centre forward and the left back were the pick of the team. 'Qolwyra were represented by: M. Beverley, D. Wood, and Evans, backs; W. Davies, Lewis, and K. Albutt, half backtg, D. Hicks, W. Pryce- Jones, Davies, Gray, and D. Law, forwards. Mr. H. V. Doughty-Davies, the old Welsh In- ternational, was the referee, and expressed him- self as much struck by the greatly improved play of the Colwyn team, who three weeks ago were heavily beaten at home by their opponents of Saturday. The pLayers on both sides were anxious, no do-ubt, to show their best form, as they were playing under the eye of a distiguishied member of the Welsh International Selection Committee. Mr. Doughty-Davies has been on the Committee for several years, and lately he was appointed Chairman for the present season.
