THE PUBLIC HALL.The Public Hall, since it has been in the hands of Mr Chaplin (caretaker), has commenced a very successful career, having had a decidedly propitious season so far, company after company on the boards, and the public enjoying the programmes which have been so frequently varied during the last few weeks.

THE BLUE BELL, RHOS.- The Blue Bell Hotel, Llandrillo yn Rhos, has been taken by Mr Joseph Robinson, who has recently retired from a long official career on the Great Northern Railway.

COLWYN BAY AND COLWYN SPORTS.—The hon. secretary (Mr Williams-Rees) is asked by the committee of the sports to express regret that they have been unable as yet to issue a balance sheet. The indisposition of the chairman through illness, the difficulty of getting the collecting books returned, and the apparent unwillingness of several firms to render their accounts for pay- ment, are the causes of delay. Up to the present. the expenditure has been £ 87 and the receipts (including LSo from gate-money, entries, and sale of programmes). ^96. The subscriptions thus, show up very poorly, and, as it is anticipated that another Lio will be required to leave the account on the right side, the committee urgently ask all 9 intending subscribers to kindly pay the amount to their Bankers (The National Provincial Bank of England, Colwyn Bay) as ea^ly as possible. As soon as ever practicable, the usual authenticated balance sheet will be published in our columns.

SHAWLS MADE WHILE YOU WATCH.—A novel attraction has been added to the many already in Colwyn Bay, in the shape of the public exhibition of shawl-making, Mr E. H. Davies, Uxbridge House, having had erected in one of his windows a spinning-jenny of "ye olden tyme," and upon this shawls are made in view of the large crowds who throng in front of the window.
