The Afternoon Meeting was presided over by Alderman M.A. llalli. J.P., who spoke of the great privilege he deemed it to take the clutir at a gathering of that nature. He did not seek publicity, for fitiling health had compelled him to decline to take part in many meetings, but in regard to the Newmarket Eisteddfod he made an exception, for during the years he had resided there he had received the greatest kindness at the hands of his nieighbours. 0

COMING EVENT. August 18th. —Parish Church Bazaar.
Visitors. Dyserth has been well patrouised by visitors during the holidays. There has never been such an immense number of people visiting the place as was the casoon Sunday and Monday last. A very large number of con- veyances of every description brought hun- dreds of people to the place on Sunday morning. Daring the last few days it is esti- mated that some thousands of people have been to view the falls and to admire our beautiful scenery.
High-Class Concert. The English Congregational Church at Dyserth has cause to congratulate itself upon the successful concert held on Wednesday. Some of the very host talent was procured, and the audience evinced a keen sense of appreciation of the artistic—for the concert was par excellence an artistic one. The president, Mr Terfyn J. Williams, representing the Congregational cause at Rhyl, in his address followed the example of Mark Antony, who though professing himself to have "neither wit, nor words, nor worth," was yet a decided success. The concert was conducted by Mr T. Harding Roberts (Hhyl), in a most admirable way. The visiting artistes were Miss Bessie Jones (harpist and vocalist, Liverpool), Miss Ella Freeman- Smith (pianist, Birmingham), Mrs T. Cuswell (elocutionist, Birmingham), and Mr Bert Wallace (vocalist, Chester), while the local talent was represented by Mrs Ivor Eames (soprano). Miss Florence Jones (violin), and Master Thomas Henry, a clever boy who contributed songs and recitations. The accompaniments were played by Mrs W. Yeoman, Mr Wallace, and Miss Adams. The Rev. Ben Williams (pastor) proposed a vote of thanks to the president, the con- ductor, and all those who had helped to make the concert such a success, especially to the pastor, deacons, and members of the Welsh Calvinistic chapel, who had kindly lent their commodious chapel for the concert. Mr F. Gilbert Smith seconded the vote, which was carried enthusiastically, and replied to by the conductor in a few appropriate remarks. The singing of the National Anthem con- cluded a most enjoyable evening's entertain- ment.
E. HUGHES, Chester House, UPPER DYSERTH, four minutes walk from the Motor Station, wishes to announce to the public that he has opened the house as (t RESTAURANT for the accommodation of Visitors Parties will be catered for on moderate terms.

"Charley's Aunt Again. Still running, and as gaily as ever is Charley's Aunt," which is to be played at the Town Hall on Wednesday next by Mr Thomas' principal company. For downright healthy fun this play is hard to beat, and it always delights an audience. The harmless, but amusing and diverting pranks that the three Oxford Undergrads adopt to help them- selves out of a temporary difficulty, can never fail to awaken peals of laughter.
The Pierrots have had exceptionally large audiences at their entertainments all week, and the pro- gramme provided has given much enjoymert to the patrons.

On Saturday morning a group of boys from the Potteries of Stuke arrived at Mr Whiteford's farm for a week. The Hanley Boys' Brigade also arrived at Mr Edward Jones' farm, Ty'nymorfa on Saturday morning. On Sun- day evening this brigade marched to the Wesleyan Chapel, the band playing" On- ward Christian Soldiers on the way. An English sermon was preached by Mr Lewis Jones, Prestatyn, for the occasion of their visit.
Anniversary services. Last Sunday the English Congregational Church held their anniversary services. The Rev. J. T. James of Shotton preached at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. In the afternoon a P.S.A. was held, when many of the children, together with the adults, took part.

Elocutionists Misses Lydia Jones and Edith May Evans, Mr George Tattum, Masters Arthur Jones, Edwin Jones, Ernest Jones. Jabez Vernon and Bennie Jones.

The Oddfellows. On Tuesday, the Royal Gyrn Castle Lodge of Oddfellows held their annual walk, litaded by the village band they marched around the district, and on returning, they sat down to a knife and fork tea at the Wesleyan school- room. The catering was ably carried out by Mr Williams, Kidderminster House.
Trip. For their annual treat, the English Congre- gational Sunday School visited Rnyl on Wed- nesday. Many non-members accompatnied the scholars, and tea was arranged for at the English Congregational Church, Rhyl.
Cycling. Mr Edward Williams, Min-y-don, again proved successful in cycling at Llanrwst on Monday, and at Prestatyn on Thursday, being an easy first in the half mile and the mile races.

Shipping. Last Friday s.s. Ben Vrachie ah-ived in Mostyn Deeps from Marmagore, India with a cargo of 5,000 tons of iron ore. Also on Tuesday the ss. Persiana arrived from Bargie with 6,000 tons of iron ore in her hold.
Lecture at Axtyn. At the Baptist Chapel on Wednesday night Rev T. Idwal Jones, Garndolbenmaen, delivered a most pleasing lecture, entitled "The Preacher and the Listener." Mr W. Parry (Rhyl) presided, and for an hour and a half the audience was kept highly interested. A hearty vote of thanks was duly passed to the lecturer and the chairman.
History of the Parish. Last Sunday morning the Rev D. Griffith (Vicar), delivered an address to a large congregation in the Parish Church on the History of the Church and Parish of Meliden. He dealt with the derivation of the name, and stated that Llys was once used as a bishop's residence. The restorations of the church were also referred to. A request has been made that the address be printed, and we understand that the Vicar is considering the matter, and it is probable that he may publish a small treatise on the subject.
The Concert on Tuesday evening next promises to be a successful undertaking. The list of perfor- mers is excellent, and there should be a crowded house. The proceeds will be devoted towards enlarging and improving the Vicarage.
Children's Service. Special services are being held for children at the Parish Church each Sunday morning. These have been arranged by the Vicar more sspecialty for the children of the Warrington samp, whom it was found impossible to ac- commodate at the ordinary service, owing to jhe large congregations that attend at present.

List of the Prize-Winners. The committee of this annunl event, held on Monday, can congratulate themselves on the splendid gatherings they had this year, the evening meeting especially being of a most enthusiastic character, it being stated there were close on 2000 people present, a fact which must have fully recompensed the committee for the arduous labour involved in making the preparations.
The Evening Meeting Was agreat success,themarquee being crowded with a most enthusiastic audience. Lord Mostyn presided, and among the audience Were Lady Mostyn and party, Lady Mostyn (Talacre), and Miss Mostyn. In the course of his presidential address his Lordship remarked he had been connected with eisteddfodau for the past 80 years. Regarding the present meetings he said they Were held^ on what might be described as classic ground, for they were within sight of the ground of the great eisteddfod held at Caerwys in 1568, to which was granted a Royal Charter in the reign of Queen Elizabeth. The old harp contested for at that eisteddfod Was now at Mostyn Hall, and it was a very ancient relic, for it went back 100 years pre- vious to that eisteddfod. On the proposition of Mr Jones (School), a very hearty vote of thanks was accorded Lord Mostyn for presiding,and lie was loudly cheered by the audience.
Parish Church Bazaar. The outlook is very hopeful for this event, which is to be held on Tuesday week. A sale of work is somewhat of a new feature in Dyserth. and the ladies connected with it are doing all in their power towards assuring its success. Mrs Townshend Main waring, of Galltfaenan, has kindly promised to perform the opening ceremony.
Sunday School Trip. The Church Sunday School had their annual trip to Rhyl on Wednesday. This trip was confined mostly to children, as the adult members of the school have selected Chester for their general outing. The child- ren were taken in conveyances, and were all entertained to tea in the afternoon. They were favoured with splendid weather through- out the day, and had a very happy time.
English Service. At the Congregational Church, Mr E. 0 Pitchford (Prestatyu) is to preach in English at 11 a.m. and 6-30 p.m. on Sunday.
Local Winners. The Dyserth Hall horses have been adding to their already long list of successes. At Ruthin sports on Monday they carried off two challenge cups, and another second prize. The riders were Mr J. Roberts and Mr E. H. Parry.

Jones preached sermons, and part was taken by Mr Hugh Jones(Bagillt), Mr Henry Jones (Ffynnongroew^, Rev. W. Evans (Holywell), and the Rev. J. Lloyd Hughes, Ffynnongroew. The meetings were n In a great success.
