ANNUAL DINNER OF THE BARRY QUOIT CLUB. The sixth annual dinner of the Barry Quoit Club was held at the Ship Hotel, Barry, on Wednesday night, and proved to be an unqualified success. The elaborately-furnished dining hall of the hotel pre- sented a very handsome and attractive appearance. The catering of the popular proprietress. Miss Leicester, was thoroughly appreciated, the repast being of a most recherche character. Amongst the numerous company were Messrs. R. S. Robinson, captain of the club (who took the chair in the un- avoidable absence of the president). S. J. Martin (vice-captain), T. Waters, G. F. Willett (secretary), T. Ward (assistant secretary), E.

Egan, Murphy. &c., &c.—The Chairman gave the toast of "The Queen," which was loyally drunk, after which he apologised for the unavoidable absence of Mr. J. Robinson (president) and Mr. J. Lowdon (vice-captain).—Mr. T. Waters proposed, in brief terms, "Success to the Barry Quoit Club." which was enthusiastically drunk amid cheering and with musical honours. — The Chairman, who was accorded a hearty recep- tion, rose to respond. He said that during the past season the club had played six matches,but of which they had won four. (Applause.) In order that they might have a good fixture list for the next season, a general meeting had been arranged for the following evening, so,that a com- mittee pro tem might be appointed to arrange matches until the appointment of the general committe next year. (Applause.)-The Chairman said it was now his pleasant duty to present the three prizes in connection with the 18yds. handi- cap which had been held, The first prize, a hand- some timepiece, had been won by their vice-captain, Mr. Martin the second, CasselFs English Dic- tionary." by Mr. Illingworth; and the third, an alarum clock, by Mr. T. Ward.-Each recipient having appropriately returned thanks, Mr. E. J. Roberts, who was referred t6 by the chairman as the oldest-established tradesman at Barry, gave the toast of Success to the Trade of the Barry Dock District." He expressed the hope that the district would continue to thrive, and that the Barry Quoit Club would join in the general prosperity. (Cheers.)—Mr. Theo.

F. Willett also respouded, and said he had been secretary of the club for the past six years, but was compelled to bid them good-bye as an official, although he did not intend to sever his connection with the club as a member.
