Christmas Carnival at Cardiff,
Christmas Carnival at Cardiff, A GREAT WELSH FAIR, INTERVIEW WITH THE ORGANISER, In view of the opening of thp above next Saturday, we reprint from the Western Mail the following ac- count of an interview between a representative of that paper and Mr J, L. Kerpen, of the Esplanade Hotel, Penarth, the organiser of the Fair. "I understand, Mr Kerpen, that your exhibition is to be held in the famous Rosebery Hall," said the pressman. 1 "That is so." said Mr Kerpen. "My experiences in the North of England have led me to believe that such a form of Christmas carnival appeals to most people, especially in such a comopolitan town as Car- diff. Probably one of the most successful of these carnivals is held in the Waverly Market at Edinburgh, which has been in operation for about eight years, and annually attracts about 150,000, Another famous example is at the Agiicultural Hall, London, and it is on these lines I purpose catering for the Cardiff public." What do you consider the most attractive items which we may pieasureably anticipate ? The celebrated wresting- lion from the Empire of India Exhibition, the lion about which so much has been written in connection with Madame Sarah Bern- hardt, who made up her mind to buy it, and would not be gainsaid. Then I aUo propose to offer to my juvenile patrons a gigantic Christmas tree, containing over two thousand toys and picture books, which I intend to give away to the first two thousand young- sters entering the building. Then I bavb engaged Zulima, the great female Sampson, who is absolutely the strongest woman on earth, and who fires a real cannon on her shoulders- Theu there will be per- forming elephants, comic skaters, jumbo policemen, flying- acrobats, tight-rope dancers, &c Australia's greatest cyclists will ride on next to nothing, eccentric heathen Chinese will vie with the -1 Wozider on the wire," while the attractions of Bowman's Marionettes and Etheridge's cats lying down with his mice will, I venture to say, draw large crowds. Then, in various parts of ihe building, will be mystic caves, witches' heads, old Aunt Sallies, Punch and Judy shows, shooting ranges, an exhibition of glass-blowing, flying horses, an old Welsh village, and various peepshows. I have engaged (by the kind permission of Colonel Fisher,) the Glamorganshire Artillery Band, which will be presided over by Mr Paul Draper. "The Taff Vale Railway Company, the Great Western Railway Company, the Rhondda and Swan- sea iiay Railway Company, and the Barry Railway Company, have, in an enterprizing manner lent them- selves to the scheme, with the result that the people outside, residing on these lines, will be able to obtain cheap excursion tickets, including- admission to the fair, and I have no doubt these will be readily snap- ped up by those who have i day to spare." There will be an exact realization of an old Welsh inn, which I think will be interesting from an educa- tional point of view. There will also be a Japanese tea palace, and there will be the ordinary temperance stalls for the visitors generally. I shall also be able to provide a solid meal for those who come from the surrounding districts. fruit stalls for the vegetarians, lollipop, stalls for the children, the temperance stalls for our teetotal friends." I "The Carnival will open on the 21st of December, and, so far as my intentions at present go, will remain open until the end of the first week in January.

On Friday afternoon he was the recipient of a very hundsome silver tray and breakfast service, and also an afternoon service, from the magistrates of the district, and a silver fruit and flower epergne, the gift of the members of the County Council. 0 0 0 For the best fat beast in Cardiff Fat Stcck Show, and Sale on Tuesday last, Mr J. Rees, Corn-erswelll-- Penarth, was awarded the second prize, 000 Our esteemed townsman, Mr D. II. Edmunds, who. has for many YAars carried on business as House and Estate and General Commission Agent, has now taken another step forward, and has added to his other branches that of auctioneer. Mr Edmunds is tbor-, oughly reliable, and all his business dealings have been marked with honesty and integrity. I have not the slightest doubt he will meet with the pltronag that straightforward dealing deserves. Mr E. B, Riley will act as Secretary and Manager for the Corn. pany. Ii) 0 0 And yet another "Knight of the Cleaver" is about to make a bid for a share of the patronage and support of the residents of Penaith. I regret to state; that owing to the continued ill-health of Mr T. King, Ironmonger, Windsor Road, he hts been advised to give up a portion of the premises occupied by hina for several years, and these have been taken by Mr J. G. Ridd, jButcher and Purveyor, whose advertisement appeal's in another column. lie will open the premises with a supply ol genuine English meat on Friday, the 20th inst. o 0 (9 Mr E. Tennyson Smith will open his week's Missioa on Saturday evening, and on Surday evening will conduct a service commencing at 8.15. Both of these services will be held in Andrews' Hall, as will also those on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday. The Wed- nesday and Thursday Meetings will be held in Arcot Street Wesleyas Chapel. 00(\ Let it not be forgotten that the Cogan Board School Concerts will be given in Andrews' Hall next Wed* nesday and Thursday. The programme is an excellent one. There will be plenty of variety, and all good. Patronise the children. 0 0 0 The programme issued by Mr J. F. Pickford, of the Penarth Chronicle Office, for the Sale of Work in connection with the Tabernacle Baptist Chapel on Wednesday, is generally admitted to be the finest specimen of artistic work ever issued from the press in Penarth. Miss Rees Jones extended her congrat- ulations, unsolicited. Rev. W, G. Davies sava "It is a splendid work of art." One gentleman present, said "This is a darned good programme," and many others have eulogised the production. A Cardiff printer says the blocks are effectively used, and the ornaments tastefully arranged. Some printers ape at artistic work, but their ignorance and lack of taste spoil all effect."

'r" Tabernacle Baptist Ghapel. ANNUAL SALE OF WORK. « Following the series of services in connection with the opening of the new Tabernacle, a Sale of Work took place on Wednesday last. It has been deter- mined to make this an annual event, the proceeds of each to go towards liquidating the debt on the building. It was feared by some whether the Sale so soon after the special efforts in connection with the opening, would be a success, but the faith of the workers has been fully rewarded, for not only did the people attending the chapel turn out well, and make another effort, but the friends from other Christian Churches in the town attended in large numbers to bestow another token of their sympathy. The opening proceedings commenced about three o'clock- The Consecration hymn, Take my life, and let it be Consecrated Lord to Thee," was sung, and Deacon Eastman offered prayer. The Rev W. G. Davies said, we do not want too many addresses this atternon, yat, in a sense we want all present to be speech makers. In welcoming Miss Rees Jones, who was to open the Sale of Work, it was not necessary to say much. Those who had attended the Tabernacle a few years ago would remember that Miss Jones was a regular attendant with them for some time. Then she came and rendered great service for them by laying the memorial stone next she came over when the chapel was opened to see that it bad been properly erected, and that the builders had done their work well; and now she has again come to show us her s mpathy, and we most heartily welcome her at this lime (applause). Then we are glad to welcome so manit friends who are here from other Churches. Nothing has touched me more, during-the time our chapel was in course of erection, than see the interest and sympathy manifested by thele kind friends, The speaker then called upon Miss Jones to address the company. :1, Miss Eees Jones said when I received the pro- gramme, and sa N that I was supposed to give an Z, address, I thought I had a large order in. It is nothing new for ns to meet together and rejoice on happy occasions which seem to follow one another veiy quickly here at the labernacle. It seems only the other day that wo met together to lay th") Memorial stone. The story of the opening services is now ancient history, and to day we meet to continue the work, the reduction of the debt being the great object. Only those who have themselves taken part in work of this sort know the loving anxiety in the hearts of the women who have so earnes-ly devoted their time, money and thought to this object. We all know that there must be a great deal of self-sacrifice before a display like this can be made. We all feel greatly indebted to them for their labour of love and feel that the spirit which animated; the women who assisted in rearing the Tabernacle of old for the Glory of God. is still in their midst, for have not these women, whose hearts weie stirred up "worked willingly with their hands," And may I venture to add, that possibly the sins which were laid at our charge recently, may be in some measure extenuated by the self-sicrifice and earnest devotion of Christian women since the formation of the Church. However, be that as it may, we rejoioe to-day that men and women walk hand in hand together bearing equal praise and blame. I should like to thank everyone for the share they have taken, and to congratulate them upon the result, and to ask visitors to be gener- ous in their support, and I must not forget my own duty, that is, to declare the Sale of Work now open (applause). Mrs Lace (President of the sewing class.) proposed a vote of thanks to Miss Jones, and this, was seconded by Mrs Jones (President of the Dorcas Society), The Officers and Committee of the Sewing Class were Mrs Lace (President), Miss Llewellyn, (Secre- tary), Miss Evans (Treasurer.)
