August Notes. We are now at the height of the season at Prestatyn, very few of the apartment houses being unoccupied. The beach is naturally the favourite resort, especially during the mid- day hours, when the tide reaches almost to the wall. The visitors who do not bathe divide their attention between watching those who do and listening to the Pierrot fun. The sunshine this year seems to have had a greater effect than usual on the iaces of our visitors, numbers of the younger ones ap- pearing with skinned noses. Thursday was wet all day—a very unusual occurrence hereabouts.
Town Advertising. As a result of the offer of Mr Aiston to arrange for an entertainment, the proceeds of which should go towards a town advertising fund, a few of those interested have taken up the matter, and Monday, September 7th, is the day fixed for the event. Mr Aiston has the arrangements in hand, and in addition to the introduction of entirely original numbers by his popular troupe, there are to be turns by specially engaged artistes, so that an excellent entertainment is to be provided. Mr Hughes (the Town Clerk) is carrying out the secretarial duties, and the entertainment is to be under the patronage of the Urban Council. The generous support of the whole of the townspeople is asked for, and Mr Aiston's Pierruts have kindly undertaken to see that the concert is fully brought to the notice of the visitors.
The Pierrots. Competitions and topsy-turvy nights are proving great draws, and crowds continue to patronise these entertainments. On Mon- day night Mr Aiston takes his anuual benefit.
Promenade from Prestatyn to Rhyl. At the meeting of the Rhyl Urban Council on Monday, the matter of removing alleged obstructions on the sandhills between Pres- tatyn and Rhyl was referred to, and during the discussion it was mentioned that a com- munication had been received from the solici- tors concerned with the land with reference to a proposed promenade from Prestatyn to Rhyl. The joint committee appointed to deal with the obstructions will also report to the Council on the proposed promenade scheme.
P.S.A. These letters stand for" Pleasant Sunday Afternoon." They represent a religious movement which now numbers hundreds and thousands of adherents. The National Federation which has been formed is an organisation for the advancement ot the principle of the brotherhood of man. Its motto is One is your Master, even Christ, and all ye are brethren." It is unsectarian and interdenominational. All sections of the Church—Established and Free-have taken up the movement with great enthusiasm.
Religious Services in the Pierrot Gardens. Do the residents and visitors in Prestatyn know of the religious services held in the Pierrot Gardens every Sunday afternoon '? Mr Aiston, the popular leader of the pierrots, has kindly granted the use of the gardens for P.S.A. meetings, and most helpful services are being held. On Sunday last Mr Pitchford presided, and an exceedingly inspiring and eloquent address on the aims and objects of the movement was delivered by Mr John M. Hay, Vice-president of the National Federa- tion. Mr Bwrt Wallace sang two solos in excellent style. Mr Bovvran of Newcastle, and Mr Hill of Wigan also took part, and the service was rendered all the more interesting by the presence and help of a good choir and two or three lady violinists.
Warrington Children's Summer Camp. Sports were held on the above grounds on Thursday afternoon last. Uufortunately, however, the weather broke and marred the pleasure of the afternoon. The officers from the camp desire to tendei their sincere thanks to the following gentlemen who so generously subscribed towards the children's prizes: T. S. Roberts, Esq., Scottie," Captain McDonald, Mr. E. A. Jones, Mr T. Williams, Mr. E. Owen, Messrs Williams & Richards, Messrs Jones and Co.. and Messrs Dicks. The result of the sports was as follows 80 yards (boys under 11) 1 G. Brown, 2 G. Mannion, 3 G. Charlton. 100 yards (boys 11 to 14) 1 A. Hankey. 2 A. Trantom, 3 G. Proctor. Potato race 1 G.

Summersgill. Bread eating race. 1 W. Chetter 2 P Edmunds, 3 J. Hazlehurst. 1 mile race: 1 H." Summersgill, 2 S. Clare, 3 S. llothevell, 4 F Dale.
THE CAMPS. The week's camp of the Church Lads' Brigade, under Col. Moore, came to an end last Saturday, after a most enjoyable period under canvas, the delightful weather ex- perienced adding greatly to the success of the camp. General Fry inspected the lads on Friday, when the various drills gone through gave the utmost satisfaction, and the smart O appearance of the lads called forth much praise. In the afternoon of the same day the sports were held, the many events being keenly contested. The Jewish Lads' Brigade struck camp on Sunday morning, and their stay in Pres- tatyn is spoken of as being the most success- ful the brigade has yet had. General Fry inspected this camp also on Friday, and was highly pleased with all he saw. No sooner had the above brigades departed than the town was invaded by two or three other lots. About 400 of the C.L.B. from Preston, etc., have been encamped on the Barkby Avenue ground during the week, while about 150 of the Stockport Lads' Club have been under canvas on the Meliden Road ground, and close to them a number of the Aston Manor (Birmingham) Boys' Brigade are also enjoying a week here.
THE GOLF CLUB. I The monthly medal competition was played otiun Saturday afternoon last, and some interesting games took place. Additional interest was leut the event from the fact that country members are now eligible for the com- petition. Mr Britton and Mr Richardson drew, and the replay is to take place to-day (Friday). The scoring was as follows Gross. 11 'cap. Nett. S. A. Britton 91 16 75 W. P. Richardson 84 9 75 T. Keighley 81 8 76 J. C. Hoyle 83 (. 77 J. B.

Jones 121 25 96 On Saturday there is to be a bogey sweep- stake competition. Mr Bulcock has presented the club with a cup, and it is probable that the first round in the competition for this prize will be played on Saturday week. The members hope to see the donor taking part j u the competition.
Special Preacher. At Christ Church on Sunday the special preacher at the 11 a.m. service is to be the Rev. T. Storey-Bates, M.A., Rector of St. Stephen's, Hulme, Manchester. At 8-15, after the evening service, there is to be an organ recital given by Mr T. Keighley, Mus. Doc., F.R.C.O., A.R.C.M. (of the Royal Man- chester College of Music), and the vocalist will be Mr J. Atcherley Hebson, L.R.A.M., A.R.C.M, of Liverpool.
Christ Church Baazar. Thursday and Friday next are the days on which this event is to be held at the Town Hall, and those interested are making a great effort to wipe off the balance of i:150 which remains on the New Aisle erected in 1905, the total cost of which was £ 1500. The fact that this sum has been brought within a measurable distance of vanishing point in so short a, time speaks well for the local efforts put forth, and it is to be hoped that the desire to clear off the balance will now be realised. The expenditure has been incurred, to a considerable extent, for the accomodation of visitors so that their unstinted support on this occasion will be well merited. The opening is to be performed the first day by Mrs Edwards, The Palace, St. Asaph, and on the second day by Mrs Geeson.
The Open-Air Service on the beach,"arranged by the Prestatyn Free C) Church Council, was last Sunday conducted by Christian Endeavourers. The Rev E. D. Brainbridge, of Kidderminster, also addressed the gathering.
Lady Mostyn of Talacre, accompanied by Miss Agnes Mostyn, visited the camp of the C.L.B. this (Friday) morning. During the week the lads had marched to Talacre Hall.
Victoria Avenue Congregational. The Sunday morning English services are being continued at this place of worship, the well-known Dr Oliver, of Holywell, being an- nounced to preach next Sunday. A solo will be rendered by Mr Bert Wallace, of Chester, and Mr Roland Wallace (organist City Road Presbyterian Church, Chester), will act as organist.
LAWN TENNIS. A match of considerable interest was played between the Bastion Road and Gronant Road Clubs on the courts of the latter on Wednes- day afternoon, the games being witnessed by several visitors and friends. The results were slightly in favour of the former club, who won 94 games against 89. Most keen and interesting struggles took place and the contests proved that there are several expert players connected with both clubs. The result of the various games were as follows In the ladies doubles Misses Selkirk and Thornton (Bastion road) beat Mrs Currie and Mrs Purnell by 19-13 Misses Banks and Clements (Gronant Road) beat Misses Bates 12-5. In the gents' doubles Messrs Poole and Oxiade (B.K.) beat Messrs Purnell and Partington 16-10; and Messrs Bates and Harding (B.R.) beat Messrs Warmsley and Currie 15-11. In the mixed doubles Mr Purnell and Mrs Currie (G.R.) beat Mr Poole and Mrs O'Callaghan 12-3 Mr Oxiade and Miss E. Bates (B.R.) beat Mr Partington and Miss Banks 16-12 Mr Warmsley and Miss Lloyd (G.R.) beat Mr and Miss M. Bates 13-7; while Mr Millard and Miss Selkirk (B.R.) beat Mr Currie and Mrs Purnell 13-6. Refreshments were kindly provided by the Gronant Road club, and a most enjoyable afternoon was spent. It has been arranged to play the return match on Bastion Road ground next Wednes- day afternoon. BACKHAUS. One of the most interesting concerts at the Town Hall this season is the re-appearance on Tuesday next of Bacldraus, the famous pianist, and Madame Ella Russell, the world-renowned prima donna- Madame Ella Russell holds a prominent place amongst the greatest operatic singers of our time, and for many years was a star" of the first magni- tude at the Royal Opera, Covent Garden. In every branch of her art, opera, oratorio, or the concert platform, she is equally delightful, and her appear- ances are always keenly appreciated. Backhaus, although still quite a young man (he is but 24 years of age) has made for himself a reputa- tion as a pianist that is second to none. Year by year he seems to develop greater powers, and not only does his marvellous technique seem, if possible, to be even more facile, but his readings of the works of the great masters show a great depth of feeling, and more perfect understanding. Backhaus has just returned from the Continent, and this will pro- bably be his last appearance in Prestatyn before his two years' tour round the world. Madame ELLA RUSSELL.
The Agricultural Show. held at Kliyl on Thinsday was a great success from a financial point of view and also as regards the number of entries. Despite the wet weather there was a record gate, £ 160 more being taken than at Wrexham the previous year. Among the exhibitors of live stock from this neighbourhood gaining prIzes were—Heifer, A. Denson, Dyserth (3rd prize), calf, W. G. Roberts, Dyserth (1st prize) cart gelding or filly, W. G. Roberts, Dyserth (3rd prize) heavy horse, H. Denson, CwO* (2nd prize).
