The Mission which is to continue for ten dJays opened with a great demonstration. A procession was formed to meet Mr Tenny- son Smith on his arrival by the 3-30 train, and it was a most remarkable success. It was esti- mated that fully 1200 people were in the pro- cessiion which was over a. quarter of a mile long. There were two capital bands and the juveniles wore blue sashes and with the display of banners preceding the various contingents it miade a vetry pleasant sight, and the streets in many places along the route were lined with people who gave the Lecturer a very cordial reception. About 900 people attended the recep- tion tea, after which addresses of welcome were delivered by ministers and others, this being followed by a public meeting. Two most suc- cessful meetings were held on Sunday, and in the evening the pledge tables were so crowded with people eager to sign the pledge and put on the blue ribbon that the workers had a difficulty in coping with the wotrk. EVENING SCHOOL REPORT.—H.M. In- spector's report on the Evening School, held at Lloyd Street Co-unail School, October 1908 to March, 1909. Mr J. Vaughan Humphreys, headmaster:—"These classes have been well organisedl and are doing very useful work. The nuiiibea7 of stuents was altogether 114, and their attendance was very good iln moist cases. In view of the excellent opportunities which axe provided for further instruction by competent teachers in a wide variety of subjects (such as Arithmetic. Book-keeping, Shorithaaid, Dress- making and Welsh) it is to be regretted that a mucih largar number of young people of the town dio not take advantage of the classes. Excellent eirderz prevailed when I visited the classes, and the students were interested in their work. A good supply of useful garments was shown in the needlework class. Especially interesting was the Welsih class, attended mainly by English-speaking students, who were taught on very suiitahlei methods. Many of the students obtained certificates at the end of the session in such subjects as Short- hand, Commercial Arithmetic and Book- keeping." IN AID OF CRIPPLED AND BLIND GIRLS.—On behalf of the Crippled and Blind GirLs' Industrial branch of the Watercress and Flower Girls' Christian Mission, a grand Artificial Floral Exhibition, with sale, will be formally opened on Monday, September 6th, at 3 p.m., at the Town Hall. Llandudno, by Lady Mostyn. A number of ladies connected with, the various places of worship are taking a kindly interest in the enterprise, and will lend their aid at the stalls during the week The Mission, which is a far-reaching one, owes its existence to the late Earl of Shaftsbury, K.G., and Mr John A. Groom, and seeks to encourage help and guide the numerous classes of girls who seek their livelihood by selling flowers in the street of our large towns. It has an Orphanage at Olacton-on-Sea, and seaside and holiday home for Blind and Crip- pled girls. The orphans are trained for domestic service, and the Crippled and Blind girls are taught the beautiful art of flower- making. So well do the laitter do their work that many of the flowers made by them ere easily mistakein for the production of nature. It is hoped that all will pay a visit to this extremely novel and pretty exhibitaon and see the girls making the flowers; they are made of the best woven material, no paper ones. Admission free. „

CORRESPONDENCE. unsightly ADv!•:i, 11 si-iENT<. 1'0 the. Editor- Sear Sir,-May I call your attention, if it has escaped your notice, of the downward grade the Town Councillors are taking, in allow ing advertisements of tradesmen to appear on the mainsail of one of the boats for hire in your bay, which if allowed to remain will nc<t end here. It is bad enough to have to put up with all the hoardings which mar the Jurney by rail en route to your beautiful town w:/>ut having to sit in your apartmenits on the iront and see, a moving advertisement shett in the water. Besides, sir, being an eyesore, it will induce other advertisers to announce their wares, and Llandudno with its bathing- machines plastered on all sides with some- body's Soothing Syrup, lor Soap that won't wash clothes is too. horrible to. contemplate. I venture to hope this appeal will not be in vain.—Yours, etc., A THIRTY YEARS' VISITOR. -<>
PIER CONCERTS. FIFTEENTH SPECIAL. At an early hour, "Standing Boom Only," was announced- with regards the second class seats at this concert, and the few remaining in the fr-ont of the house wanted a lot of find- ing. Thomais's overture. "Mignon," was given a most hearty round of applause, and called forth the remark of a first-timer at these con- certs, hi our hearing, "They can play," with an accent on the "can." Mr J. H. Foulds' 'cello solo in Volkmana's Serenade for Strings "Op. 69 N'j 3" was somewhat marred by late- comers, who insisted upon searching for seat- amongst the tip ups, during the softer passages of this delightful serenade. Tschaikow ky's Pizzicato Ostitiato, from Symphony in F Minor "No. 4" was given a better chance, amd thoroughly enjoyed bv tll present. Wagner s Fantasia, "Lohengrin," Eizet's "Carmen" Suite No. 2, and Humperdirck's Dream.-Panto- mime, "Hansel and Crete]," were the other main items of a highly enjoyable proigranmie. •» MR. HENRY TURNPENNY (Tenor). Mr Turnpenny commenced a week's engage- ment at this concept with Gounod's "Lend me your Aid," and for an 'encore saing "Songs of Araby." Balfe's "Come into the garden Maud" was hits second song on the programme, and he was again recalled. Handel's Recit, "Deeper and deeper still," with the Air, "Waft her Angels," which he sang at the' Sunday evening's .concert, gained for him unstinted applause. Mr Turnpenny has sung with suc- cess -throughout the week, securing an encore at every appearanc i. » » MISS EVANGELINE FLORENCE. This charming can tat rice was in tip-top form, and .sang with delightful ease Gounod's "Message d'Amour" ("Mireille), and was vociferously recalled. She complied with a Feranade. In the second! portion of the even- ing's programtme she sang Liza Lehmann's "The Wood Pigeon" and Eilvira, Gambogi's "Flower Fairies," and again scored a great success. Always a favourite with Llandudno .audiemces Miss Ev £ ngeline Florence was at this visit the first since August 24th, 1907, even more than usually brilliant', the highest notes were sung with such apparent ease, power and sweetness of expression as to charm all present, and we congratulate ourselves most heairtily that we had not missed the oppor- tunity of renewing our acquaintance with this daughter of U.S.A. < MR. J. H. FOULDS, Composer-Conductor. Sunday evening's concert was made memorable from the fact that Mr J. H. Foulds conducted his new Music-Poem for violin and orchestra. "Apotheosis," Mr A. W. Payne play- ing the violin solo. This work was conceived and ,c'clmposedupon the death of J'oachim in 1907, and is dedicated to his memory. It is divided into stanzas like a literary poem, in the same manner as the lomposeir's previous "music poemns." » The main interest is centered on the violin solo, ajnd Mr Payne's interpretation was fol- lowed and listened to by the large audience present with the keenest interst. The com- poser very naturally was deeply interested in the production of hiis work, and the gentle- men of the orchestra Were all anxious to ren- der justice to their respective parts. "Apotheosis" is undoubtedly a very clever piece of work, one that appeals to the imagina- tion and stirs- the emotions. The remarks of those who were present and had not studied their priO'gramime, that it wa,s sad and mourn- ful, was the highest complimelnt they c-oubl pay to the earlier portion of this composition. To our mind it was miost expressive, full of eharftcter and individuality, probably more suitable for a, chamber concert, for some of the more delicate passages were entirely lost, the pavilion being packed, 'more especlally in the gallery, where now again the creak of a closing door was distracting to those intent on following every note. It was not sufficiently marked, however, to spoil the, general effect, and cclnclusiively proved that Mr J. H. Foulds lias t.boro'uglhly mastered the technique of his craft. We shall certainly make a point of being present at the next performance, and being more favourably placed for hearing aright. MR. GEORGE ATKINSON, Pianoforte Soloist. At Tuesdfcy evening's concert Mr Atkinson, who has been making many new friends and admirers this season for the excellence of his pianoforte solo productions, was most en- thusiastically received, both prior to and after h;s Concerto, "Andante" and "Allegro con I Spinto" (Tschaikowsky). Despite the fact it was the last item before the interval the audience insisted upon an encore, and were further raised' to a high pitch of enthusiasm by his delightful xenditi-ori of A Minuet bv Sgamoari. SIXTEENTH GRAND SPECIAL. To-night (Saturday) the vocalists secured are Mr Walter Hyde, tenor, and Miss Edith Evans, soprano, and the programme is also a par- ticularly attractive one, from an orchestral items point of view.
GAS V. ELECTRICITY. THE BATTLE OF THE LIGHTS. Gas: I say old man you're looking very yellow. Electricity: Yes, and I feel rather bad too: it would be better if I were dead. I've been working over 1500 hoars and I've only a useful J life ot 1000, and \et master's always grumbling and saying I give a very bad light. I Gas: lie's quite right, but then you never were much good, even when you were young. Now I'm the latest up-to-date gas mantle. 1 give a nice greenish white light, none of your yeilow bilious light, and then I only cost my master two thirds what you GO per liour. Electricity: Oh, dear, i m afraid if that's true all my race are doomed. I do feel bad; I'm dying! i Blue flash, then darkness. j Gas (jumping and dancing): Joy joy! I'm winning, they'll soon all be dying; aiiict those that don't die will be cast out". Master (coming in): Hallo! what's up; its rather dark in toe corner. Oh! I see its that electric lamp failed at last. Well I'll try one of those new lamps that my engineer, Wil- Lou-ghby Lance has been showing me. He showed me quite clearly that it only costs one- third for electricity that the old one used to, While the gas cost two-thirds; that means that for every 3d. I used to spend on electricity or 2d. on gas, with this new lamp I shall only spend id., and there is no doubrt it is much cieaner, safer and mo: convenient, than gas. Gas (shaking): Whew, that's a bad wind: its torn my mantle; I don't like tne sound of it at all. Master obtains a EOc.p metal filament lamp and puts it :n. Gas: Oh, that's a dazzler, why it's a better light than my ov n. Tp new lamp: I say, what do you call your- serH New Electric Lamp: Please I'm an Osram. Gas A what? Electric Lamp: Ai Osiam, at least that's what I heard Willoughby Lance call me when he put me into a meter and tested me, saying, "Now here's an Osram; look at the .current it t-akc-s; it gives 50 candle power and consumes the same current as that old fashioned 16c.p. which equals a saving of two-thirds. Gas: Oh!_Oh! (splitting down the side), this is too bad, it gives me pain; it Looks as though my brothers will have to strengthen their con- stitution and economise their energy. Master: There, look at that gas mantle. I declare that's the second one that's gone in the last .month, and it's not nearly soo pleasant a light as that iiaw lamp. I'll have all the gas out and let Willoughby Lance wire the whole places for Osrains Gas (shakiina- more than cer): Pop! pop!! pop II! pop! Mastei turns the gas out ANGLING COMPETITION.—The result of

Heyn, Red- court, Church Walks, and formerly of Liver- pool. Mrs IHeyn had visited Llandudno for very many years, staying at Eilhinog with Miss Moore, who was one of her school friends. For twelve years Mr and Mrs Heyn came to Llan- dudno or.ee or twice every years, and finally came to residte here five years ago<, when Mr Heya was recovering from a veiy serious ill- ness. Mrs Heyn had been in failing health for two years, but was- .able to get about and enjoy the company of a wide circle of friends she h iel made in Llandudno, foT she possessed in no small degree the faculty of winning t'he esteem aard love of all with whom she came into contact. Mrs Heyn was a, Catwhter of the late Mr G. P. Forwood, Wavertree, Liverpool, and was married to Mr Heyn, forty-five years ago. They were a very devoted couple, and were, scarcely ever separated for more than a day 'daring the whole of (that-long period, so that the dleath of his wif,, is a very [severe blow to Mr Heyn, who 'had ünlya year ago, bought Red Court, and was looking farward to spend- ing thj next few years in rest and repose. The remains were taken to Anfield and cremated, the ashes being placed in an uiin and deposited beside those of her daughter in the family vault in the Unitarian Church. With Mr Heyn, his son and married daughter, much sympathy is felt in their bereavement.
