Lammas-strett a ad the adjacent thoroughfares were packed with cattle and horses. On neither day did horses sell briskly, the dialers fiom various pitits of England being someAvhat disappointed with the geneial appearance of the animals. In addition to this, the scarcity of grass in the home counties militated against an incre-ee in prices. Some fairly cood steppers went at £:O a-piecp, and many exchanged hiii-.(I- from that figure down to £ 10. Some of the best rot deters and cainago horses fetched L'30 to £,to- Few carters were seen at 11,2 fair but a good naanv po:»ies were oliered at £ > to £ lo'.

On the evening of Thursday, the 2Sth of May, Mrs Gwynne-IIughes gave a variety entertainment at the Drill Hall, on behalf of the funds of the Church Sunday School. Her efforts to cater for the public were met by a full house. The Volunteer Band, under the conduetorship of Sergeant Howells, contributed some capital selections of music in goo I style, whilst the Llandilo Male Voice Party, led by Mr D. Morgan, Carmarthen-street, gave very pleasingly "The Sailor's Chorus" and" The Little Church." Mrs Gwynne Hughes, Mis. Fanny Thomas, Miss Hilda Lockyer, and Miss Hoberts, of Tenby, contributed songs to the evening's entertainment, and were all well received. Mr L. Atkins gave II Trovatore very creditably cn the violin. Mr Brunei White, Carmar- then, was very successful with his comic songs. The favourite of the evening was, undoubtedly, Mr Campbell Thomas, of Swansea, who is evidently a born" comb." He was irres:stibly encored. But the main feature of the entertainment was a series of what were very aptly and appropriately termed Living Pictures," and the only fault one has to find with them is that they were so transitory. The curtains had to be withdrawn a second time for every picture, so entranced were the audience with them. From a spectacular point of view they seemed more liko scenes from fairyland than aught else. Mr J. W. Nicholas gave-as only ho could give—descriptive sketches. The pictures were as follows :Spring," Miss Lili Gwynne-Hughes; Stitiiii)er," Miss L'Estrange, Miss Wyndham Lloyd, Miss Thursby- Pelham, Miss May Gwynne-Hughes, and Mi.-s Maggie Gwynne-Hughes Autumn," MissThursby- Pelham, Miss Lili Gwynne-Hughes, and Mr J. Philipps; Wiuter," Miss Hodges; Ophelia," Miss Maggie Gwynne-Hughes, Miss L'Estrange, and Mr J, L, Thomas Making the Running," Miss May Gwynne-Hughes, Mr Picton l'hilipps, and Mr Wilbams Fairy scene," Gwestfa Orphans Love and Fate," Miss Wyndham Lloyd, Miss Hodges, and Mr J. Thomas Rival Belles," Miss M. Gwynne- Hughes, Miss L'Estange. Miss Pelham, and Mr J. l'hilipps A hopeless dawn and Flowers of the East," Miss Lili Gwynne-Hughes, Miss Jennie Filfc, and Miss Morgan, Cui "Over the (;arden \Vall," Miss L'Estrange, Miss May Gwynne-Hughes, Miss Maggie Gwyiine-Hugl.es, Mr J l'hilipps, and Mr J. Thomas. A party of Miss l\Ia.c'Arthul"/S scholars gave a cymbal drill with rare precision and execution. It was an admirable performance. Mr J. A. Williams, North Wales, and Mr L. Atkins, Swansea, acted as accompanists.
