IIELSBY ROSE FETE. -• The third annual Helsby rose fete, held earlier this year on account of the Coronation festivities, took place on Saturday, and in spite of the incle- ment weather during the later portion of the afternoon passed off successfully. The procession, which left the schools at 1.30, proceeded along the Chester-road to the Robin Hood field, lent for the occasion by Mr. J Potts, where the crowning of the Queen and other events took place. A good number of spectators assembled along the route, and the general opinion was expressed that from a spectator's pomt of view the procession was in advance of last year. The sight was certainly an exceedingly pretty one, the children in their varied characters and the beautifully decorated vehicles and mailcarts, &c., all combining- with excellent effect. Headed by the Helsby Brass Band the procession took the following form:—First walked about 300 schoolchildren in every conceivable character, the rosebud queen, Miss Carrie Smith, with attendants, the lurries with dancers and maids of honour, and then the Rose Queen, Miss Ada Parker, with her attendants, followed by the decorated lurries and carts. On reaching the Robin Hood field, where a fair number of spectators had assembled, the judging was proceeded with, and the following were pronounced as prize winners:—Class I.— Best dressed team and lurry or heavy cart: 1, Mr. J. Dilworth, Manley; 2, Mr. T. Darlington, Ince. Class If.-Best dressed horse and lurrv, heavy cart, or wagon: 1, the Wigan Coal and Iron Co., He'sby (Mr. J. Brandreth agent); 2, Messrs. Blythe and Nield, Alvanlev 3, Mr. Smith, Ince. Class III.—Best dressed light vehicle and horse or donkey: 1, Mr. H. Jeffs, Manley; 2, Mrs. Priesbcr, Helsby 3. Messrs. Pricstner and Sons, Helsby. Class IV.—Best decorated hand vehicle, mailcart, etc. 1. Mrs. C. Nield; 2, Mrs. T. Hat- ton; 3, Mrs. G. El'ams.

In- fants Boys: 1, Leonard Bate; 2, George Slede; 3, Jas. A\a!ton. Girls: 1, Eva Percival; 2, Olive Williams; 3, Hilda Britland. "The crowning cere- mony, which then took place, was an exceedingly pretty sight. The Rose Queen, Miss Ada Par- ker, who looked handsome in a dress of white with pink train, and bore herself in a most grace- ful and dignified manner, received the crown from Miss Marie Stanway, the ex-queen. The Rosebud Queen, Miss Carrie Smith, also looked beautiful in her dress of rose pink, while the various cos- tumes of the maids of honour and attendants made the effect a strikingly picturesque one. Following the crowning ceremony, the May-pole dance was proceeded with, in which the dancers, attired in white with pink and green sashes, deftly wove the varied coloured ribands in varying designs, to the accompaniment of the brass band, the combination of colour and the graceful movements of the dancers making the sight a beautiful one. The sports were then proceeded with, and re- sulted as follows:100 yards race for school girls: 1. Gladys Dixon;' 2. Emma Ellams. 100 yards schoolboys' race: 1, Leonard Bolve; 2, T. Hulse. 200 yards flat race (open) 1, E. Hughe?; 2, R. Jones. During an interval the children per- formed in excellent style the Sir Roger De Cover- ley dance, and were loudly applauded for their admirable efforts. The following is the result of the remainder of the sports: -Quarter-mile flat race (open); 1, M. Boyle; 2, T. Fenton. 100 yards flat race, for youths under 18: 1, J. Noden; 2. Sutton. One mile bicycle race, orien to Helsbv, Alvanley, Manley and Dunham Hill: 1. Pritchard 2, S. Littlemore. At the conclusion of the sports the prizes were distributed by the Rose Queen to the successful competitors. Un- fortunately the rain, which had threatened for some time, now bearan to fall heavily, and the dancing and fireworks had in consequence to be abandoned, much to the disappointment of the .Epnctator«. The sports were ably manated by Messrs. W. Barlow, R. Bibby. H. Oates, G. Sed- don and J. Feddon. while the following ladies and orentlemen officiated as judges: Best dressed boys. Mrs. Harnaman comic dressed boys, the Rev. C. C. Prichard (Theu-nton-'e-Moors); best dressed girls, Mrs. Harry Smith comic dressed girls. Mrs. Prichard: infant boys, Miss M. Taylor; infant arirls. Miss Tomlinson: horses and carts, Messrs. E. Hassall. T. Wright and A. Greenwav; hand vehicles, Mrs. Hermon and Mr. R. Hermon. Great praise is due to Mr. Harry Smith, the hon. secretary, and the committee, who carried out the arrangements in an admirable manner. The pro- ceeds are to be davoted to the National Schools. but tin consequence of the inclement weather which prevailed in the evening, it is not expected the receipts will mount up to last year s.
