She passed a way at the age of 67, and, in accordance with her expressed wish, it was requested that 11') flowers should be sent, this circumstance being an additional proof of the manner in which she went about doing good to her neighbours. The funeral arrangements were entrusted to Mr John Vaughan and Mr Lloyd (Marine Hote'j Colwyn), every detail being satisfactorily carried out. TREAT TO THE BOARD SCHOOL CHILDREN. The annual tea-party in connection with Old Colwyn Board Schools, took place on Friday, September 21 st, when a sight was afforded sllch as is seldom to be seen. The Schools were transformed into a tea-garden by the aid at amalgamated small bouquets brought by the school children, handsome and elaborate decora- tions being thus made for the well-laden tables, around which sat no less than about 2sa children, with faces beaming all over with smiles. No' only was there a tremendous display of flowers, not only were the tea-drinkers numerous, but the waitresses and other assistants seemed to have come from all parts of the world (almost) for assisting Mr, Mrs, and Miss M. A. Evans, the school master and mistresses, among whom were noticed the following good ladies :—Mrs Jones» Bryntirion; Mrs Davies, Ferndale; Miss B. Evallst Station, Colwyn Bay; Miss Jones, milliner, TreVO" House, Colwyn Miss Jones, Bowdon, Man- chester Miss Williams, Bryngwynedd, Mochdre, Mrs Jones, Hebron Chapel House; Miss Thomas, Maes Aled Mrs Saunderson, Mount Pleasant, Miss M. Thomas, Derwen Las, Machynlleth; Miss Katie Jones, Henblas Villa; Miss Maggie Jones, London House; Miss Owen, Tymawr Cottage, Miss Jones, Peninaeti Miss Jones, Greenfield House; Miss Jones, Rhuallt; Mrs Vaughan, Chapel Place. Most valuable assistance in the preparations, was rendered by Mr E. T. Davies* Greenfield House Master John Jones, Ty Cape Hebron; Master J. Thomas Jones, Church Walks; Master J. Henry Roberts, Hirwaen House and Masters Richard Henry Thomas, Georgie Jones, and Willie Jones. While tea was^being put on tables, the children sweetly sang The Bay Biscay" and the Vesper Hymn," and grace was sung before as well as after tea. The tea and cake (the latter supplied by Mr Jones, Mount Pleasant) were of the best, and reflected great credit on the caterers. After having enjoyed a splendid tea, the children marched through the village to a field near the station, where outdo"' recreation was entered into with high spirits such as are usually found in juveniles, until the time when (the evening getting chilly) it was thought best to let the young ones go home.
