The latest songs and dances were introduced, in addition to innumerable jokes, which kept the audience in good humour, and set them laughing "until they could not see." DEPARTURE OF MR E A JONES. Our readers will regret the departure, yet congratulate, MR E A Jones, who has been promoted from the Denbigh Post Office, where for the last two years he has held the responsible position of senior male clerk to the Rhyl Post Office, where he will take up his duties on Saturday next. The public will miss Mr Jones from the counter of the Post Office, where he was always affable and obliging to all who had business there. DEPARTURE OF MR FRED LLOYD. The supporters and members of the Denbigh Church Guild F.C. will regret the departure from Denbigh of Mr Fred Lloyd, the captain of the eleven, having been elected at the com- mencement of the season. He has been a most faithful and enthusiastic member of the club, and last season filled the role of vice-captain to Mr George Lewis as captain, who left Denbigh for Derby some time ago. Mr Lloyd played on the extreme right wing for the Guild, where his absence will be greatly missed. He left for Birmingham on Thursday, where he has been promoted to the L and N.W Railway Company's Locomotive Department. We congratulate Mr Lloyd upon hib promotion. ( CHURCH FOREIGN MISSIONS.

(medallist), and Phylis Pierce Hughes were the chief artistes at a grand concert held at Penrhynside, Llandudno, last Wednesday evening. It was Miss Hughes' first appearanoe in the neighbourhood, but we trust not the last. Miss James has been several times, and is so popular that her name is enough to secure a full house any time. The place was so full this time that many had no chance of entering through the door. Everyone enjoyed the singing so well that the people retained their seats after the last solo expecting more, although the concert had been going on for two hours. These young ladies are a credit to Denbigh." m PREACHING MEETINGS.

On Monday, atl the Memorial Hall, Denbigh, Mr J Ernest Pryth:an delivered the first of a course of six lectures, illustrated by lant-rn, ou the above subject, under the auspices of the Oxford University £ Extension, The lecturer said that in pre-Reformation times paintirg in England was behind the art of other European nations, but nevertheless they had in those days a more wonderful art than they cou d now understand, for most of it had existed m churches and monasteries, and had been destroyed at the Reformation. Henry VIII imported foreign artists, and Charles I first invited Rubens, who declined, and then appointed Vandyr'l to be his court painter. Erglisb art dated from the time of Hogarth, who was a preacheioas well as a painter, and he tried to chasten people's morals by satirizing bad manners and bad morals. Sir Joshua Reynolds was one of the greatest of English portrait painters, and after studying Italian art he tried many experiments in mixing paints with the result that many of his pictutes were 81° led by very fugitive colours but the wreck of one of his pictures was worth many by some artists. Other con- temporaries were Gainsborough, who was considered by Sirna to be an even better portrait painter, Romney, West, Tuseii. The lecturer called attention to the conditions attaching to, and the advantages t Uered by, the classes (particulars of which can be found in the syllabus), and concluded by announcing that the next lecture will be held at 2.15 p.m.
