j Little Band of Hope Purse- Holders' Shyness. The first" function at which Princess Chris- tian officiated at Cardiff on Friday was the opening of the Cardiff Temperance Union's bazaar at the Drill Hall, whither she drove immediately after her arrival at the station, where, n reply to the address of welcome from the Mayor "of the capital of Wales, as he announced, she referred to the plea-, sur" it gave her to visit "one of the chief industrial centres" of the Principality of [Wales. The Mayor (Aid. Hughes) in inviting the Princess to open the bazaar referred tc pre- vious Royal visits to Cardiff in 1896, and September, 1890—when the late Duke of Clarence and A vondale opened the bridge over the Taff-and the inauguration of the Royai Agricultural Show by H.R.H. Prince Christian, and expressed the pleasure with which they anticipated the coming of the Prince of Wales in June to lay the founda- tion stone of the South Wales University Coitege. The Chairman (Mr. F. W. Brett) then gave an address on the growth of the Band Hope movement in Cardiff, and then fol- lowed the ceremony of the presentation of purses of gold by children, containing ovsr £458, and totalling, with subscriptions an- nounced at the meeting, £ 733 7s. 5d. Sev- eral amusing incidents followed as the chil- dren ascended the platform. Several were so impressed with the appearance of Roy- alty that they forgot to put the purses Oft the tray, and Princess Christian smilingly pulled them up, and reminded them of their omission. After further speeches her Royal High- ness went around the stalls. She had a hrief chat with all the principal stall-hol- ders. At the "Sir George Williams" stall the Princess was much amused at a fine aucking-pig which hung from a peg near the door. "It's the only gentleman of the kind I have met this afternoon," she laughingly pai i. An old infirm lady was seated almost in the path of the Royal party. Some of the crowd sought to hurriedly move her aside, bat Princess Christian held up her hand, stopped the movement, and going up to tht old lady touched her gently on the shoulder and said, "It's all right. Don't you trouble about moving away." The Princess made numerous purchases, of a child's dress and bonnet, chocolates, pinafores, etc. Subsequently she paid a private visit to the Welsh Industries' As- sociation depot; and then drove to St. Fagan's, where the Royal patty is being en- tertained by Lord Windsor.
