THE MILITIA.—The recruits, who num- ber about 80, marched through the principal streets of the town the ether day, their smart appearance being generally remarked upon. To Captain Berners, who is deser- vedly popular with the men, must be attri- buted, in a(great measure, the impetus given to recruiting at the barracks this year. SPECIAL OOURi.

Mr J. T. Roberts appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr Humphreys, Portmadoc, defended. The plain+iff, in the course of her evidence, said that the defendant and two other men tried to force her to swal'low a quantity of liqusid contained in an egg cup. The d fendant said it wculd do her a great deal of good, and that she would not have a child if she took it. Some of the stuff, which had the smell of turpentine, passed her lips, and she became sick and- vomited. The Bench made an order for 2s 6d a week. PERFORMANCE OF A GANTATA. — At the Moriah Chapel on Thursday night, a juvenile choir, under the leadership of Mr Ben Jones, A.C., gave a performance of the sacred cantata "The -Good Shepherd" (H. W. Wareing, Mus. Doc.). Mr William Gri- ffith, Wellington terrace, presided over a fair attendance. The choir rendered the various choruses in a delightful manner, while the youngsters, to whom the different solos were allotted sang with good taste and effect. The performance reflected the greatest credit upon the conductor, to whose painstaking efforts must be attri- buted the high degree of efficiency attained by the choir. The principals were Lizzie M. Jones, J. S. Fletcher, Katie Owen, Katie Jones, Eveline Jones, Jennie Rich- ards, Lizzie Owen, D. Charles Roberts, Katie Pritchard, and Agatha Williams. Songs and duetts were also contributed by Miss Mia Williams, Mr J. Peris Jones, and Mr Cefni Jones, and Mr Orwig Williams, who was the accompanist, played a selec- tion of music on the organ. The concert throughout was eniovable, and it was to be regretted that there was not present a larger audience. CONCERT. A concert, which can be described as a treat in every sense of the term was held at the Guild Hall, on Tues- day night in aid of the Beulah C.M. Chapel, of which the Rev R. D. Rowland (Anthro- pos), the well-known poet is the energetic pastor. There was present a large and fashionable audience, presideâ over by Mr Charles A. Joneis, solicitor, whose rare plants were kindly lent to beautify the platform of the hall. The artistes were Madame J. Thomas, Llanelly; Miss Gwen- doline Dew, London; Mr R. Brothen Jones, Mr Tegfan Roltsrts, and Mr J. Cottrell's party. Mr Orwig Williams (organist of Moriah Chapel) was the accompanist. The following was the programine —Song, Mr Tegfan Roberts; Song, "Llam y Cariadau" (R. S. Hughes), Madame J. Thomas; Song, "Honour and Arms" (Handel), Mr R. Brothen Jones Song, "A Memory" (Gor- ing Thomas), Gwendoline Dew; Glee, "In this Hour of Softened Splendour" (Pin- suti), Mr Cottrell and party; Song, "Y Milwr Clwyfedig" (R. S. Hughes), Mr R. Brothen Jdnes; Song, "Gwlad y Bryniau" (Griffiths). Madame J. Thomas Song, Mr Tegfan Roberts; Song, "Come, Sweet Morning," Miss Gwendoline Dew Glee, "Y Blodeuyn Olaf" (J. A. Lloyd), Mr Cottrell and party; Song, "Ernani, 0 come, fly with me" (Vardi), Madame J. Thomas; Song, "Soldier's Song," Mr R. Brothen Jones; Song, Miss Gwendoline Dew. Mad- ame Tl mrs, who made her first bow to a Carnarvon audience on Tuesday night, is an accomplished singer. It was she who won the chief prize in the soprano solo competi- tion at the Llanelly National Eisteddfod, and ever since that time she has takrn part in all the -important concerts in South Wales and other parts of the country. Her singing the other night greatly impressed the audience, who demonstrated their ap- preciation of her efforts by encoring two of her songs. Miss Gwendoline Dew, a daughter of Mr W. Dew, of Bangor, the popular and genial auctioneer, is a great favourite withNorth Wales concert-goers. In addition to a charming presence she pos- sesses a voice of great purity which she can use with excellent effect. She too, was en- thusiastically and deservedly encored for a beautiful rendering of "Come, Sweet Morn- ang." Mr Brothen Jones and Mr Tegfan Roberts gained unstinted applause, and Mr Cottrell's party, which is familiar to Car- narvon audiences, sang two glees in a pleas- ing manner. The secretary of the concert, which will yield a substantial surplus, was Mr J. Roberts, Victoria Stores, Mr Moses Evans, Brynhendre, being the treasurer.
