LLANDOVERY. THE WEATHER.âThe change for the better which set in last week still continues. The roads, instead of being hard and slippery, are now wet and tnuddy. Local weather-prophets prediot a mild spring and an early summer. EBENEZER (BAPTIST) CHAPEL ENTERTAINMENT. -On Thursday evening of last week an excellent entertainment was given at the British School, when Mr T. Watkins, brewer, presided. The tact, coolness, and judgment with which he dis- charged the onerous duties of the office proved conclusively that the promoters of the evening's diversion had been fortunate enough to secure a t, model chairman. Few of the various gentlemen who have from time to time held this post at the gatherings in the same building, have been able to get the audience under such complete control without the display of unnecessary arbitrary power. Not onee while the lengthy programme was gone through did he submit to the shout that now and again rose for an encore, but in a courteous yet firm way, told those whose chief delight seems to be to prolong concerts toa wearisome length, that they had decided before commencing that there should be no repetition. The spacious school- room was filled with as many as it could com- fortably hold, and the proceeds, which will be devoted to such a deserving object as augmenting the Sunday School funds, must have represented a very respectable sum. We regret that we are only able to give the names of a few who took part as we failed to secure a programme. The entertainment was opened with a piano solo by Miss Watkins, daughter of the chairman, who discharged the duiies of accompanist from start to finish very efficiently. Mr Gwilym Williams sang several times and with a telling effect so did our humourous friend from Cilycwmâ Tidymus Gwenlais." Among the others who took part were Miss Martha Williams, Miss E. Morgan, Miss Herbert, Miss Lewis, Miss Roberts, Miss Harries, Cwmgwyn the Dolaugwinion party, George Harries, &c. At the close a very amusing farce was gone through, all who took part in which represented the various characters most creditably. Mrs Prim (the mistress), was represented by Miss A. Jones servants, Miss Edith E. Jones, Miss Mary Ann Jones, Miss Emma Jones, Miss Harries, Cwmgwynne, &c. Mr Councillor J. R. Price wrote regretting his inability to be present, and enclosed a sub- scription. The proceedings terminated with the singing of the Welsh National Anthem, the solo being taken by Mr Gwilym Williams.
