ANNUAL ARTILLERY BALL AT j CADOXTON-BARRY. The members of the 11th Company (Cadoxton) 2nd Glamorgan Artillery Volunteers, together with a large number of ladies, in all about 180, were again entertained at the annual ball held through the kindness of the esteemed command- ing officer of the company, Captain J. J. Hand- cock, on Friday evening last, at the Public Hall, Cadoxton. The affair was a brilliant success, promoted in a great measure by the energy and skill displayed by Sergeant-Major Atkins, R.A., of the 11th Company, who superintended the entire arrangements, praise also being due to other mem- bers for their valuable assistance. The dancing room was complete with artistic decorations composed of armoury, Indian trophies (lent by Sergeant-Major Atkins), flags, mottoes, ever- greens, &c. the floor was in excellent con- dition, and Sergeant-Major Atkins, Sergeant-Major Wakeham, and Quarter-master-sergeant Dykes were complimented upon their decorative abilities. The mottoev were as follow Long live our Queen," -1 Success to Colonel Hill, X.C.B., M.P., Colonel H. O. Fisher, and the Officers of the 2nd Glamorgan Artillery," Health to Captain Hand- cock," Welcome to all," and Success to the 11th Company." The officers present were-Captain Eyre, R.A., Adjutant; Major Thomas, Penarth Captain Handcock Captain Stallybrass, Bridgend Lieutenants Vivian. Tweedy, and Bradley, Cardiff. Non commissioned officers — Sergeant Major Atwill, R.A., Cardiff; Sergeant-Major Atkins, R.A., Cadoxton Quarter-master-sergeant Wil- kins, Cardiff Sergeant Major Wakeham, Cadoxton Sergeant-Major Carty, Armourer- sergeant Gould, Quarter master sergeant Dykes, and Sergeants Lewis, Meazey, Holland, Whitburn, OBrien, and H. De Boer (medi- cal staff). Amongst others present were Mr Shepherd (Penarth), Mr Wallace W. Davies, Mr R. Pardoe, Mrs and Miss Atwill, Mrs Atkins, Mrs Wakeham, Mrs Wilkins, Mrs Dykes, Mrs Marsh, Miss Hedges (Cardiff), Miss Richards, Misses Burbidge, Misses Pearce, Misses Griffiths, Misses Bilson, Miss Wil- liams, Miss Macdonald, Miss Frost, Miss Sydenham, See. Captain Handcock led off with Mrs Wakeham, the company joining in the many dances with much vigour and appreciation until the dawn of the following day, and during the proceedings the scarlet of the uniforms of officers and men inter- mingling with the colours of the ladies' dresses produced a very pretty effect. Sergeant Holland filled the position of M.C. to the satis- faction of all, and Messrs Johnston and Roberts' Band, of Cardiff, rendered pleasant dance music. Mrs Lewis, Shaftesbury Hotel, catered very satisfactorily. In the sergeants' and privates' rooms Quartermaster-sergeant Dykes and Corporal Ellis respectively attended to every want with assiduity, and under the care of Sergeant-major Atkins the proceedings from beginning to end passed off to a nicety, and without the slightest hitch, no pains being spared to promote the comfort and enjoyment of all present.
