ST. ASAPfl. THE BAPTISTS' MEETING. The Baptists held their annual preaching moetings on Good Friday, when leading ministers of the denomination officiated. I EASTER DAY. On the day of days the number of com- municants, both at the Cathedral and Parish I Church, far exceeded those of previous years. vio The servioesiwere also well attended through- out the day. ILLNESS OF CANON DREW. The citizens will regret to learn of the serious illness of Canon Drew, Rector of Hawarden, who was operated upon on Tues- day for a serious intestinal trouble. He was made a hon canon of the Cathedral in 1903, and has often occupied the Cathedral pulpit during Advent or Lenten special servioes. ISOLATION HtSPITAL. The Local Government Board have sent a letter to the St Asaph Rural District Coun- cils, urging them to proceed with the erection of an isolation hospital for their districts. The diffioulty in the past has been to get the two Councils to agree to a scheme which would be suitable to both districts. The mat- ter is expected to be finally settled on Friday next, when the Joint Committee meet. BANK HOLIDAY. The only local attraction on the feast of Sb Lubbock was the annual football competition at Elwy Grove Park, when the Coed Talon Rangers gained the silver cup for the third time in succession, and thus became absolute owners. The handsome gold medals also were secured by them, Bagillt St Mary were the winners of the silver medald. The weather proved exceedingly bright, and fine healthy sport was witnessed. When the various teams had exhausted their combative powers, brass lunged barrel organs poured forth their volume of music and the merry-go-rounds commenced on their exhiliarating whirl. THE CRUCIFIXION. On Good Friday evening there was a large congregation at the Parish Church, when Stainer's Crucifixion was rendered by an augmented choir, numbering 50 voices, under the direction of Mr T R Jones, organist and choirmaster. Apart from the beautiful music, the words by the Rev W J Sparrow Simpson, M.A., are in themselves a meditation on the passion of the Holy Redeemer. The choir seemed imbued with the solemnity of the occasion, and the chorus was exceedingly well rendered throughout. The soloists were Mr Edward Barlow (tenor), Messrs J W Edwards and J Morris Jones (basses), and each acquitted themselves in a praiseworthy manner. CATHEDRAL SERVICES.

Y THE SILVERY SEA. It matters nob what local attractions are billed, the majority of the citizens gravitate towards the silvery sea on bank holiday. The day soon passes, pleasantly and healthfully, and thu evening, and then the mind seeks for the most attractive indoor enteitainment, and withoub the slightest hesitation you fix upon the living pictures ab the Lyrio Hall in Market-street, ^which are bound to be good, for the entertainmen's have been patroniEed nightly throughout the winter. The pictures are graded, comedy and tragedy, comio situa- tions at which the most dyspeptic member of the audience is forced to laugh. Pictures of pathetic sufferings through poverty, love scenes, and scenes of royal splendour. Go and see them for yourselves, they are certainly the best thing to be seen in Rhyl.
