DOWLAIS TRADESMEN'S BALL. The eighth annual Tradesmen's Ball was held at the Oddfellows* Hall, Dowlais, on Thursday evening last, and was undoubtedly the best yet held. The decorations of the hall were carried out by the mem- bers of the committee, and it is not too much to say that through their unflagging efforts, the hall was transformedfinto a veritable fairy palace. Large mirrors, on which were supported fairy lights, were placed along the walls, as well as many-hued flaps and muslins, all of which were arranged in an artistic namier. High overhead, in suspended lines, hung a large uuiuber of Chinese lanterns, which gave quite an Oriental aspect to the gay scene. The pillars supporting the balcony were draped with yellow sateen, while from pillar to pillar were festooned ever- greens. The front of the balcony was decorated with art muslins and cretonne, on which were fastened Japanese fans of all colours, bannerettes, and flags in great variety were also hung, and a huge Union Jack m the front of the gallery was much admired. The orchestra seats on the platform were effectually hiddeo by tastily-arranged palms and foreign plants. On thw background of the p!atform was suspended ahum emblem, "Success to the Annual Dowlais Trades* men's Ball, printed in scarlet, and edged with ever- greens. Dancing was commenced promptly at eight1, and a programme of 20 dances, excluding extras ofthft newest dance music, were played by Mr. F. O. Roberts' excellent Cardiff Band. The M.C.'« were Slessrs. R. LI. Atkins, D. J. Danes, A. J. Freed- man, Roger Harper, M. Levinsohn, and T. Stephen Evans, and these gentlemen carried out their duties to perfection. Supper, which was laid out in the Assembly-room, was partaken of at midnight. The tables were beautifully laid out, And laden with a great variety of viands, which were prepared by Miss Pritchard, Plough Inn, who also supplied the wines, and Mrs. D. J. Davies, Gellifaelog. A refreshment bar was also in charge ot Sirs. Pritchard. The caterers were Messrs. D. Joraes, Dickenson and Co., and they satisfactorily carried out their duties.
