Mrs. Brodrick, in aid of the local feiritorial Company, amounted to ,<"14 iSs. 8d. REYNOLDS' PICTURES. Attractive and fascinating programmes continue to be the rule .at the Public Hall, and the crowded audiences, and their high eulogies of the perform.ances, betoken that the residents of Colwyn Bay appreciate the efforts of Mr. Ilarrv Reynolds to provide them with the very best far. At every performance the best pictures only are shown, consisting of comedy, broad farce, drama, tragedy, travel and educational subjects. A complete change of pictures is shown every Monday; every Thursday new subjects are added, so there is alv ays something new to be seen. Every evening for a couple of hours the audience is given an exhibition of animated pictures, projected by a first-class operator, which makes a. sparkling entertainment cal- culated to amuse, thrill, interest and edu- cate. The bioscope is either pleasing the eye and gratifying the sense with scenes portraying the vagaries of humanity, or it is passing before the vision some tragic or pathetic, adventure, or giving vivid depiction to terrible happenings, or reproducing photo- graphic snapshots of home and foreign scene. With the discovery of the cinemato- graph was ushered in a form of entertain- ment which has now became an established factor in the regular pastimes of the people. It beguiles the leisure of all classes. And anyone studying the faces, wreathed in smiles, of the audience as they leave the Public Hall could bear testimony ito the efficacy of a good laugh for driving dull care away. It is the invariable custom to finish the performance with-a roaring comic, as this sends tie patrons home in a pleasant frame of mind.

ABERGELE. A GENIUS.—I am egotistical enough to believe that I can spot a genius if he happens to speak in my hearing for about ten minutes. I saw and heard one on Fri- day evening at the Ship Cafe in the per- son of Professor Ivor Williams, of Bangor, who, under the auspices of the Cafe Liter- ary Society, delivered a delightfully inter- I esting lecture on Geiriau Llafar Gwlad (colloquial Welsh). In the absence of Sir Herbert Roberts, M.P. (who was detained in the House of Commons, but who arrived later) the Rev. W. G. Owen (Llifon) pre- sided over a large and enthusiastic gather- ing. Professor Williams' lecture is one to listen to and not to be reported in English. I couldn't perform the latter task if I were to attempt it. Others who added their quota to the list of Welsh jaw-breakers in daily use were Messrs. Edward Ellis, J. Williams, M.A., G. T. Evans, J. 11. Lewis, and the Chairman. Sir Herbert Roberts entered the room while Llifon was speak- ing, and he was accorded a rousing recep- tion on the strength of what we had read tm the evening newspapers of what -had taken place in the House of Commons that afternoon. Sir Herbert, in apologising for not being 'present in time to occupy the chair, explained briefly what had taken place in St. Stephen's that afternoon. But the Cafe lecture-room was not the place to talk politics. He felt sure the audience had enjoyed to the full the lecture deliver- ed to them by Professor Williams, who was undoubtedly in the front rank of Wales's young men of genius. (Applause.) He hoped the lecture would be the means of making everyone present realise more than ever the incomparable beauty of the dear old language of Wales. (Cheers.) On the motion of the Chairman, Professor Williams was accorded a hearty vote of thanks for his splendid lecture. WEDDING.—The marriage of Mr. Edward Williams, RQse Hill, LIanddoget, and Miss Maggie Jones, School House, Llanfair Talhaiarn, was solemnised at the Abergele C.M. Chapel on Saturday mom. ing, the Rev. Morgan Davies officiating. The bridesmaid was Miss Sally Jones, while Mr. H. Francis Williams acted as best man. LECTURE.—Even a blinding hailstorm cannot damp the ardour of those Abergele people who are always keen on hearing a good lecture. And this fact was exempli- fied on Thursday evening, when a large number of enthusiasts braved the elements in wending their way to the spacious Wes- leyan Schoolroom to listen to the Rev. David Morris deliver his new lecture on Hugh Price Hughes." I should not be exaggerating if I said that the lecture was one of the most captivatingly interesting ones ever heard in the town. Mr. Morris kept his hearers spellbound from the be- ginning to the end of his discourse. Mr. II. E. Prichard, who occupied the chair, and said it would be educationally bene- ficial to the country's young men and young women were they to take advantage ot every opportunity given them of attending elevat- ing lectures of the kind they had listened to that evening. That, at any rate, was his own personal experience. He had no hesitation in saying that he had benefited more by listening to lectures delivered on the lives of great men than he did by read- ing voluminous and costly biographies. HARDY, IlURKYINCi HARRIERS.— There's no holding these Abergele prodigies of pace and stamina. They run like hares —and thrive on it. I would rather board them for a week than a month of Sundays. On Thursday afternoon they had a splen- did .spin of something under five miles. The route was along the Rhuddlan and St. Asaph main roads, paslt Efail Emrys," Bodoryn Fawr (where they gave an ominous nod to the fat geese), and then home. Re- sults i, Charles Davies; 2, Will Davies; 3, C. Allen; 4, Johnny OWêns; 5, J. Wil- liams 6, Wilson Williams; 7, Hugh Davies; 8, Richard Williams; 9, J. David Jones; 10, Moss Jones. It is only fair to say that Moss could have landed home much earlier if he had so wished. lie thought it the better part of valour, how- ever, to keep behind in order to use his reserve of wind to give impetus to the tail- enders. It was a case of loving thy neigh- bour more than thyself—which isn't poli- tics. After the race those who had taken part in it were entertained to a sumptuous spread of tea and cakes by Mr. C. Allen at the Harp Hotel. On the motion of Mr. Moss Jones, seconded by Mr. Will Davies, Mr. Allen was heartily thanked for his generosity. CAFE ELECTION.—At the Ship Cafe on Monday evening Mr. T. R. Ellis was elected member of the managing committee of that institution in the place of Mr. T. II. Owain- Jones. The voting was by ballott, and Mr. Ellis obtained a large majority over Mr. W. P. Morris and Mr. D. C. Roberts. Mr. D. THOMAS —It is with the greatest pleasure that ] report the interesting fact that Mr. David Thomas, Groeslwyd, Aber- gele, who served his articles with Mr. E. A. Crabbe, solicitor, Abergele and Colwyn Bay, has just passed the final examination of the Incorporated Law Society, which entitles him to be admitted a solicitor of the High Court. Abergele is proud of him—proud of him because, without any influence and financial assistance, he has eilmbed from the ranks to the top of the ladder through his own exertions uid the unstinted profes- sional help of Mr. Crabbe. THE VICAR of Abergele (Rev. T. Jones, M.A.), addressed a large gathering of men at the Parish Church on Sunday afternoon. These. Sunday afternoon addresses to men only during the winter months are becoming very popular and are apparently dqing a great amount of good.

She sailed alongside the lighter, which recently arrived in the hajrbour, and discharged her cargo there during the greatei part of the following day.

Loyd Jones, who took charge of the lantern, and Mr. Theo. [ones, the Chairman, on the motion of Mr. NN-. A. Evans, seconded by Mr. Geo. Edwards, of Llandudno Junction.

Griffiths, Regent House, Ed- ward Jones, Deganwy, and Robert John- son, Llandudno Junction, were nominated for the seat. On the following day the Mayor (Councillor Henry Jones) sat at the Guildhall to decide as to the validity of the nominations, and it was announced that Messrs. Edward Jones and Robert Johnson had withdrawn their candidature. Mr. J. 1'. Griffiths will thus be returned unop- posed on Saturday next.

LLANDUDNO. FIELD CLUB EXHIBITION.—A four days' loan exhibition in connection with the Llandudno and District Field Club was opened on Tuesday in the Town Hall, Llan- dudno Mr. L. H. Edminson, M.A., who presided, said the object of the exhibition was to stir up the people of Llandudno to take a more lively interest in the club. Its main object was educative, but it had two subsidiary objects—namely, to cultivate social feeling, and, secondly, to initiate some original work; to do pioneer work so far as their finances would allow. The Hon. Mrs. Henry Lloyd Mostyn, in declar- ing th? exhibition open, congratulated the club upon the valuable work it had already achieved. The hall had been beautifully decorated with flowers sent by Lady Augusta Mostyn, and the exhibits, which were in- teresting, were of a geological, botanical, (antiquarian, and miscellaneous character.

THO-NIAS.kt the Police Court, on Monday, Dr. Dalton re- ferred to the loss the Bench had sustained by the recent death of Mr. J. O. Thomas. Mr. Thomas was a most painstaking magi- strate, and attended the courts very regu- larly till his health broke down. It was the wish of the Bench that the Clerk should convey to Mr. Thomas's relatives an ex- pression of the sympathy and sorrow of the Bench. Mr. Chamberlain, on behalf of the solicitors practising in the court, said he had been associated with Mr. Thomas in business matters for many years, and he could only say that a more straihgtforward man than Mr. Thomas had never departed from that town. The sincere and genuine sympathy of the bar went out to Mr. Thomas's aged father. Deputy Chief Con- stable Rees associated himself with the ex- pressions of regret and sympathy from the Bench and Bar. Mr. Porter, Magistrates' C lerk, speaking on behalf of the officials of the court, said their predominant feel- ing towards Mr. Thomas was one of re- spect.

In this state she remained until Saturday morning, when she passed away. She was 80 years of age.

LLANFAIRFECHAN. PRESENTATION.—On Sunday the ser- vices at the English Presbyterian Chapel were conducted by the Rev. R. Morgan Jones, M.A., the late pastor. There were large congregations, and at the evening ser- vice the members took the opportunity of presenting their late respected pastor with a testimonial in the form of a cheque, as an appreciation of his excellent services. Eulogistic remarks were made by Mr. T. G. Morgan and Mr. W. G. Roberts, Llall Bank, and Mr. Jones suitably responded.

He was drunk, and witness took him home and as- sisted his wife to undress him, as his clothes were wet. NARROW ESCAPE.—On Monday after- noon, Mr. W. Jones, better known as Co Bach, met with a narrow escape whilst cycling to Conway. On the road he notic- ed a runaway horse coming to meet him. There was a steam roller on the road at the time, and he very nearly got jammed between the engine and the horse. But for the fact that the roller was stopped, Jones would undoubtedly have been badly crushed.

The movement has been hailed with great interest, and the institute will undoubtedly supply a long- felt want, Some verv generous donations towards the good cause have been made.

MUTUAL IMPROVEMENT SOCIETY.- The subject under discussion at the last meeting was True and False Courage." opened by Mr. W. J. Roberts in a paper which proved to be an exhaustive summary of the matter in hand. He remarked that from the very commencement of his exist- ence man Was always encompassed by dangers, which had made some measure of courage to be the possession of everyone. True courage always had for itself a moral I aim, and arose from a sense of duty, while false courage, often mistaken for true, in reality was arrogance or boldness with an aim which was selfish. Mr. F. L. Rartle will introduce the subject of the next meet- ing—"Is war between civilised nations a disgrace, and can it be abolished? There are still a few vacancies in the member- ship, which should be applied for at once.
