A SUCCESSFUL BAZAAR. The Schoolroom on Tuesday presented a most animated appearance, the occasion being the bazaar held in connection with the Parish Church. It is some years since a similar event was held here, and for months past the utmost enthusiasm had prevailed amongst the ladies of the parish, who, with Mrs Evans Jones at their head, had spared neither time nor trouble to make Tuesday's gathering a success. And when one looked round at the many beautiful things on the stalls, it was then that it could be fully realised what a deal of labour their production had involved. But the result must have fully repaid the ladies for their trouble. The bazaar was well patronised throughout the day, and there was a good attendance at the opening, which ceremony was performed by Mrs Townshend Mainwaring, of Gallt- faenan, Trefnant, a member of a very ancient and honoured family. The Vicar introduced Mrs Mainwaring, and also explained the object of the bazaar, which, he said had been got up to raise funds for providing a heating apparatus for the Church interior, the total expenditure involved being about £120. The rev. gentleman paid a very high tribute of praise for the excellent manner in which the ladies had worked. They had met at the Vicarage every week for the pust four months, and the splendid result of their labours was to be seen that day. Mrs Townshend Mainwaring then declared the bazaar open, wishing it every success, and expressed the wish that the hopes of the promoters would be fully realised. An interesting feature at the opening was the presentation to Mrs Mainwaring (who is 96 years of age) of a bouquet by Mrs Evans, who is 88 years of age. and the oldest woman living in Dyserth. It might be also mentioned here that there were two other old ladies in the company whose ages were 84 and 81 respectively, the ages of the four ladies reaching a total of 849 years. On the proposition of Mr Joseph Thomas, seconded by Mr Thame, the heartiest thanks of the gathering was accorded Mrs Mainwaring for opening the bazaar, and who gave the day's business a very excellent start by sub- scribing £10 to the fund. The stallholders were as follows :— Plain work stall: Mrs Thame, Mrs J. Roberts, Mrs Thomas. Mrs Harris, Mrs White. Fancy stall Mrs Morrell, Mrs Simons, Mrs Morris, Miss Kellett, Miss S. E. Roberts. Mixed Stall: Mrs and Miss Day, Miss Roberts, Miss C. Hughes, and Miss Whittingham. Fruit and flower stall Miss Troasdell, Miss Lock, Miss L. Roberts, and Miss Lewis. Refreshment stall Miss West, Miss Stubbs, Miss Sellars, Miss E. Randies, Miss E. Richards, and Mrs Evans. The usual side shows" were fully in evidence, including a fish pond, shooting gallery, electric battery, etc, etc, and these were in the charge of Miss Day. Mr \V. Ellis, Mr A. Thomas, MrVenables, Mr E. Hughes, and Mr Joseph Roberts. ivaliiable assistance was also rendered by a number of other willing helpers. The amount realized was J683.
