PROPOSED NEW DRILL IIAT,T.There is to be erected shortly, a New Drill Hall and Miniature Rifle Range for the 5th Battalion of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers, in Prince's Drive, Colwyn Bay. The plans show a large hall with Ivecture room and rooms for officers, sergeants, orderlies, etc. The Rifle Range is placed at the rear and the whole plan shows a very conven- ient arrangement for the purpose required. The front to Princes Drive will be finished simply, but it will express to some extent the purpose of the building. At the last meeting of the County of Denbigh Territorial Associa- tion the tender of Mr. B. Lumb, Todmorden and Old Colwyn, was accepted for the building operations, and we understand work is to be put in hand at once and completed in the early part of next year. The Architects for the build- ings are Messrs. J. M. Porter and Elcock, The Lstatc Office, Colwyn Pay.

II. Borthwick, the officer in command, have organised a concert and entertainment to take place in the Church roorn, on the 9th November. The Honourable rs. I^aurence A.

THE COUNTY SCHOOL QUESTION —One of the most important meetings of Colwyn Bay ratepayers ever held will take place in the Church Room on Tuesday next, at eight o'clock. It is being convened by the Chairman of the District Council to consider the question of a County School for Colwyn Bay, and the whole subject will be discussed fiom all points of view. A resolution will be proposed in favour of the Denbighshire Revised Intermediate Scheme, which provides a County School for Colwyn Bay and £ 600 towards its maintenance per annum. It is estimated this £600 and the grants earned will make up a sum sufficient to maintain the school, and thus the now spent in maintaining the higher elementary i-c.hool will be saved from the elementary educa- tion rate. As this is a matter of such vital im- portance it is to be hoped that the ratepayers will be present in large numbers. THE FUNERAL OF PRINCE FRANCIS OF TECK.—An interesting fdm of this event will be shown by Huiy Reynolds' Animated Pictures at the Public Hall all next week. These pictures are becoming increasingly popu- lar ainongs.L all sections of the community. Mr. Harry Reynolds spares neither pains or expense in studying the comfort and varied tastes of his numerous patrons Most oJ the dramatic pic- tures are remarkably interesting, being well acted and produced. Some have a strong moral bias, noticeably one, a recent production entitled The yray of the World," in which a young piiest, dov/i.i.ast at rhe tack of support accorded the Church goes forth into the world disguised as a labouring man to save sinners, but after ir any rebuffs and apparent non success, returns broken hearted 10 the Father Priest saying, They received me not," but the arrival of one reni,.U1.t sinner, an unfortunate girl, whom he had befriended, caused him to rejoice that at least one soul had he -aved. The travel and topical pictures are highly interesting, whilst an occasional fairy olay gives delightful variety. The laughable subjects, of which there are many, cause unbounded merriment. Some of I the American dramas bke place anvid scenery of surpassing beauty and grandeur. An additional charm is given to the pictures by the carefully selected an 1 t?stefully played accompaniments on the grand piano by Mr. Morris Davies, the musical director, and an accomplished pianist.

Cause aad Effect account for all the phenomena of the universe. The great law of cause and effect rules every- thing, from our simplest actions to the most in- tricate works of man. In the case of Christmas puddings, mince pies, and other delicious sweets the palatable effect is caused by currants. Currants contain an abundance of natural grape sugar, the finest and most nourishing of nature's sweets, and are the primary cause of the at- tractive flavour in those confections. Try the effect of currants in other dishes. Currants can be. used in countless ways with benefit to health, pleasure to the taste, and economy in the house- hold budget. Many of the ways of using Cur- rants are contained in a useful little currant recipe book, which your grocer will give you free of any charge. Begin with this recipe tc-da v. Munich Pudding 4 oz. brown bread (free from crust), 4 oz. flour, pinch of salt, i teaspoonful baking pow- der, 2 oz. chopped suet, 4 oz. currants, 3 oz. sugar, I oz. candied peel (finely chopped), i teaspoonful cinnamon or mixed spice, i egg, 2 ,tablespoonfuls syrup. METHOD.—Soak the bread in milk or water; when quite soft squeeze it dry) and beat it smooth with a fork. Mix the flour and other dry ingredients, then add the syrup and the egg. Mix this thoroughly with the whole of the in. gredients. If the mixture is too stiff, add a little milk or water. Butter i large or two smaller pudding moulds, and nearly fill with the prepared mixture, c over with greased paper, and steam for about 2 hours. Unmould, dish ■nd serve with a hot custard or chocolate sauce.

COLWYN BAY AND DISTRICT CHORAL SOCIETY.—We are glad to hear that the Eis- teddfod Choir has now been formed into a per- manent Choral Society. A strong and repre- sentative committee has been formed, and has set to work with energy and enthusiasm. They have been fortunate in coining to ter?ns with Mr. John Williams, Carnarvon, as the conduc- tor, and therefore we may anticipate great things by the choir before the end of the sea- son. It has been arranged to give a grand per formance of The Messiah in the Pavilioi. about Christmas. The officers of the Commit- tee are :—Chairman, rr. S. Glynne Jones, B.A Vice-Chairman, Mr. J F. Taylor;' Hon. Sec- retary, Mr. Llewelyn Davies, Gian Eden, Col- wyn Bay, to whom 11 communications should be addressed.

Despite the incle-* ir,cnt weather there was an excellent muster of members who participated ir. a splendid tea, while th 1 miscellaneous concert which followed proved both instructive and amusing The pastor, Rev. R. Roberts, occupied the chair. Songs and recitations were cleverly rendered by Miss G. Hoskins, Messrs. D. Griffiths (Rhos), and A. D.

Chapel, and later on in kud of the Abergele Baptist new chapel fund. EVENING CLASSES.—I am glad to notice that the young people of the ;town are taking full advantage of the benefits to be derived from the. evening clas-ses held at the County School. THE BOY SCOUT movement is catClliLng I on in Abergele just now..Mr. Clough, Pant I Glas. and Mr. J. Alexandre are taking the keenest interest in the movement. Both these gentlemen meet the enthusiastic youngsters and ( give them instruction at the Church House every Saturday ev ening THE LIARR IF tZS These fleet-footed vou 11 r.r men had a run of over four miles up hill and down dale on lharsday afternoon. And what an appetite the spin gave them ) FUNERAL.—The funeral of Mr. Peter Owen, whose tragic death is referred to in another column, took olace on Monday afternoon, and was one of the. largest seen in Abergele for many years. FROM SMYRNA.—Mr. J. T. Mill ward, J.P., Abergele, has just received a highly interesting letter and several photographs of Ephesus from Mr. W. Salisbury, of Smyrna, who holds a very important position in that city. Mr Salis- bury is a son of Mr. Salisbury, formerly of Talgrvvn, St. George, who afterwirds married Miss Cnth.-?rine Reynolds, who lived many years at the Penybo-Tt Inn, Abergele. In his letter to Mr. Milhvard Mr. Salisbury gives some very interesting particulars pbout the historic country in which he has made his new home. Tii,,q When travelling in the interior I often think how some of the home folks would love to see this wonderful 'land of P8nJ,' the land of the Seven Churches, the home and cradle of Christianity, now doirrrated by Islam. Of the Seven Churches, Smyrna alone flourishes, the otheTs arc in iuins, or exist in a state of most deplorable deg" idation. Ephesus is only about fifty miles from here hundreds of tour- ists go up there every ye ir. It can be reached by train in about three hours Verv little can now be seen of the famous Temple" of Diana, but the entrance io the ancient Church of St. John, a good portion of the library building, the theatre, the stadium, and several of the old roads are still to be seen The city was built principally of white marble, and some of the sculptural carvings and inscriptions are as clear as though they were ait yesterday. I enclose some snapshots which I took there early last spring. (These are beautiful photos of the en- trance to the ( hurch of St. Tohn. Ephesus, Asia Minor inside the ruins of the Church of St. John, with The gate of Persecution in back. ground The Library, Ephesus stage end of theatre, Ephesus; Next summer (D.V.) I ex- pect to come to Abergele again. I hope it will be fine this time We haven't had any rain here for over four months, and the weather continues very hot (the letter is dated October 12th), but after the first rainfall it will turn cold suddenly, and winter will ccme quickly. We practically have only two seasons here—summer and winter. We have no twilight to speak of—a few minutes after the sun sets it becomes quite dark.

LECTURE.—Despite the most unfavourable weather, there was a packed audien-.e in the Town Hall on Monday iight, when a very inter- esting lecture on Readymade Homes in Canada was delivered. The lecturer should have been Mr. A. E. Moore, J.P., of Alberta, Canada, but in his absence, Mr. W. G. R. Dunston of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company dealt very effectively with the subject, which was illus- trated by cinematograph and limelight views. The chair was occupied by His Worship the Mayor, who briefly introduced the lecturer, and said that no doubt they would be able to glean some viluable information that night on emi- gration. The lecture was .nteiesting through- out, and the pictures taken specially for the Canadian Pacific Railway Company were greatly appreciated. They showed the voyage from I.,iverpool to Canada by the Canadian Pacific Empress steamer, the railway joiuney to Alberta, the arrival at Strathmore, the colonisation work in Southern Alberta and the life of the British Home Builder. At the close, the usual lbarks were accorded.

LT.ANRWST ALBION. —Last Saturday, on the Conway Morfa, a match was played betwee.i the above teams, which proved most interesting. It was most unfortun- ate that the visitors were late, with the result that 30 minutes only was played each way. The Albions were soon in evidence, and within a few minutes Moy Lewis was twice defeated. But the Celts were not long in making up the arrears, for immediately from the centre Tommy Morgan opened the Celts' account, and barely had the ball been centred than he added two more goals. Half time arrived with the Celts leading by 5-2. The cond half saw the visitors completely done up, and for some time were on the defence. Two more goals were scored by the Celts and the Albions added one. The Celts were best served by Cyril Jones and Hugh Con- wav Jones, as backs, whilst Will Owen and Bob Samuel were in their best form. Ail the for. wards played well. Tommv Morgan being the star, scoring 4 of the 7 goals. LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD IN- QUIR\.—"Yesterday (Wednesday) morning, a I I Local Government Board inquiry was held in the Guild Hall, Conway, into the application of the Corporation for sanction under section 154 of the Public Health Act, 1875, to the purchase of land for the purpose of making a new road from Cadnant Park to Conway Town Mountain, and also for sanction to borrow f700 for the construction of the proposed road. The inquiry was conducted by Mr. H. A. Reed, M. Inst. C.E., and there were also present Councillor J. K. Conway Jones, the Borough Engineer (Mr. F A. Del tmo-tte). the Borough Accountant (Mr. Hugh Parry), and the Town Clerk's assistant (Mr. R. Jones). Mr. T. W. Hughes, solicitor. was also present The Borough Accountant gave the usual statistics, and the Borough En- gineer explained at length the scheme of the. Corporation, adding that the construction of the road would save a large number of the rate- payers a walk of close upon three quarters of a mile to get to the Mountain. Councillor Conway Jones supported the application, stating that there had been an agitation for this road for years. Mr. J. W. Hughes, as a resident in Cadnant Paik, also supported, adding that the only way to get to the mountain at present was either along Bangor-road and over the railway, or round by the Oakwood Park Hotel. The pro- posed new road would, undoubtedly, be made great use of, and especially so by visitors The inquiry was then closed.
