which Mr J. R. Bates, found while out shooting above Llanelian. Mr Williams-Rees was called in to measure them, and found the larger one 9Ji inches in diameter (completely covering covering a dinner plate), and the other 8% inches. The perfect circle had been somewhat damaged by being carried with the game bag for some hours by the lads. The mushrooms looked in the "pink" of condition, and, with the aid of three friends, at breakfast next morning, the quality was tried, and was pronounced to be most excellent. Mr Bates assures us that there were plenty quite as large, but not in perfect condition, and, besides, mush- rooms were not the game he was after. THE JUVENILE HANDBELL RINGERS ARE COM- ING !-Promptly at half-past seven next Tuesday evening, September nth, Mr John Hatfield will take the chair at the Public Hall, on the occasion of a grand concert by juvenile handbell-ringers from the Boys' and Girls' Refuges and Homes, Strangeways, Manchester, short accounts of the work being given by Mr and Mrs Gilbert R. Kirlew. THE N COMPANY'S SALE OF WORK.—Our readers should bear in mind that the N (Colwyn Bay) Company, 2nd V. B. Royal Welsh Fusiliers, are holding a sale of work, in the Public Hall, Colwyn Bay, on Friday and Saturday, September 14th and 15th, the proceeds going in aid of the Company Funds. Our citizen-soldiers work hard and sacrifice no mean share of their leisure for the good of their country and for the lightening of the expense of defending their native land, and by their public-spirited efficiency have proved themselves fully worthy ot that large share of public support and patronage which we heartily hope will be extended to them by their fellow-citizens of Colwyn Bay, and also by the visitors (who are none of them exempt from a debt of gratitude to the Volunteer Forces). THE MARRIAGE OF MISS JENNIE CHARLES, DROMORE, COLWYN BAY.—On Thursday, August 30th, at the Parish Church, Edgbaston, Birming- ham, there took place the wedding of Mr John Hazelwood Clayton, M.B., M.R.C.S., of 54, Frederick Road, Edgbaston, with Miss Lillie Jane Charles, second daughter of Andrew Charles, Esq., of B racke ii field, Edgbast on, and of Dromore, Colwyn Bay.

THE ONLY CHANCE AT COLWYN BAY !-Only' one night (Thursday September 20th) will the people of Colwyn Bay have an opportunity of seeing MrW. Hogarth's celebrated No i Comic Opera Company, in the most successful Comic Opera ever produced, "Les Cloches de Corne- ville," which at eight o'clock that evening will be produced at the Public Hall. THE CONGO INSTITUTE'S FORTHCOMING BAZAAR. -It is announced that the Congo African Training Institute, Colwyn Bay, is holding a bazaar, in the Public Hall, on Tuesday and Wednesday, Sept. 25th and 26th, with a view of wiping off a debt on the Institute. An earnest appeal is made to the Colwyn Bay residents and visitors to assist in making this enterprise on behalf of the Dark Continent a thorough success. THE ENGLISH BAPTIST PASTOR. The Rev H. T. Cousins, F.R.G.S., after a nine- weeks very severe illness, is now convalescent, and is receiving the hearty congratulations of many of his flock, he having been much missed during his enforced absence from the pastorate of the English Baptist Church at Colwyn Bay. During his convalescence he was very much cheered by the arrival (from Cape Colony), on August 27th, of his wife and their three children, who will be warmly welcomed to the Bay, and that more especially as Mrs Cousins is renowned in the realms of song. We append a report from the Grocott's Penn Mail of July 20th, a report of the "Farewell Concert given Mrs Cousins on the eve of her departure from South Africa, and also a paragraph entitled" Departure of Mrs Cousins":— FAREWELL CONCERT. Last evening the Baptist Lecture Hall was literally crowded in every part, by an audience who had come to hear Mrs Cousins sing for the last time, prior to her departure from Grahams- town. This evidence of the popularity and esteem in which this lady is held is all the more marked as there were counter-attractions offered to the public last night in the way of amusement. The best local talent being engaged in carrying out the programme, the entertainment was a great treat, and no hitch was apparent to us during the evening. We append the programme, merely remarking that Mrs Cousins' rendering of Home, sweet Home," which was sung by re- quest, was so pathetic, that many were moved to tears: Pianoforte duet, Mrs Moody and Miss Reynolds; song, Miss Agnes Nelson; piccolo solo, Mr Gilder; vocal duet, Mrs Cousins and Mr G. Bower; recitation, Miss Florence Smith; song, Mrs Cousins; pianoforte solo, Miss W. Tidmarsh song, Miss Nelson; violin solo, Mr Campbell; recitation, Mr Keel; song, Mr Jeanes; song Mrs Cousins. Mrs Cousins leaves this city by to-night's train. It is her intention to join her husband in his new sphere of labour in North Wales, and thither the very best wishes of her friends will follow her." DEPARTURE OF MRS COUSINS. Grahamstown will lose by this evening's train a lady who has been identified with many public movements of a charitable and philanthropic character in the city, from her girlhood. In the early days, before her marriage with the Rev H. T. Cousins, Baptist Minister, Miss Loveday Brookshaw held a premier place as a vocalist of rare ability, and of later years her rich melodious soprano voice has been heard on many occasions; we fear, now, for the last time in Grahamstown for some time to come. Mrs Cousins and family leave Grahamstown for England, via Capetown, by the Harlech Castle, for the purpose of joining her husband, who is now comfortably settled down at Colwyn Bay, North Wales. He has now full charge of the Baptist Church there, and was getting on well y last advices. Our best wishes for her future welfare follow her. MUSICAL AND LITERARY ENTERTAIN- MENT.
