On Monday evening, December 30th, at 7.30, a lecture on The Prayer Book," was delivered by Mr Robert Roberts, who gave a painstaking account of the special features of general utility and incompar- able beauties with which that book abounds. Subsequently, the Rev J. Harries addressed the Guild on a kindred subject, chiefly dealing with the early forms of worship, as evidenced in the Liturgies which are still extant, and which bear a relationship, if not minute* to the present usages of the Church. Lantern illustrations added much to the intrinsic value of the lecture, more especially to that portion which dealt with the progress of the Christian religion from its cradle to Britain. The Monks of Bangor-ts-Coed presumed independence even in the presence of so august a personage as St. Augustine himself, and would not be a pary to any arrangement that might interfere with tneir own privileges.—On the motion of Mr J. W. Mason, a vote of thanks was accorded with acclamation to both the Rev J. Harries and Mr Robert Roberts.—On Tuesday, January 14th, the Rev W. J. Davies (of Llandudno) is to address the Guild on Conscience."

The work to be performed is Haydn's "Creation." Members will be enrolled before the commencement of the practice. CONWAY SCHOOL BOARD. Tlte Manchester Guardian of December 27th, comments thus on the local School Board Conway can boast of having quite a unique School Board. A corres- pondent states that, owing to the difficulty of forming a quorum of members, only one meeting has been held this year. Yesterday, when the Board should have met, not a single member put in an appearance, the only persons present being the Acting Clerk and the Attendance Officer." NEW YEAR'S EVE AT THE TABERNACLE SCHOOL- ROOM.—New Year's Eve was celebrated, at the Tabernacle (Welsh Wesleyan) Schoolroom, by two entertainments. The first, which commenced at seven o'clock, and was presided-over by the Rev. O. Evans, consisted of a series of capital views of the Holy Land, and also views of various places in North Wales. This treat was intended for the members of the Band of Hope, and had been provided through the kindness of Alderman Hugh Hughes and Mr. Roger Williams (grocer), Ald- erman H. Hughes manipulating the lantern, and Miss J. E. Jones, (High Street) giving a short description of the various places shown. A cordial vote of thanks was accorded the friends for their kindness.—At nine o'clock, the Rev. O. Evans again presiding, a free entertainment was given, under the auspices of the Tabernacl Mutual Improvement Society. There was a crowded audience, and the following programme was gone through, each of the artistes appearing at their best :—Recitation, Cartref Plant," Miss Katie Griffiths part-song, Ti wyddost beth ddywed fy Nghalon, Mr. T.

The Chairman having made a few remarks, advising everyone present to resolve to do their best in every way during the New Year, Mr. T. W. Hughes's Party sang "Y bwthyn ar y Bryn," very sweetly.- County-Alderman Edward Jones having proposed, and Alderman H. Hughes having seconded, a hearty vote of thanks to all who had taken part, the meeting ended with the Benediction, pro- nounced bv the Rev. O. Evans. Miss MAUD LANCASTER IN CONWAY.—We are pleased to announce that Miss Maud Lancaster (of London) has kindly consented to give her services next Tuesday evening, January 7th, in aid of the Schools. London and New York newspapers testify to the marvellous nature of her illustrations of her telepathy, and to her wonder- ful display of powers beyond our ken." THE CALAN TEA MEETING AND CONCERT. The annual tea-meeting and concert of the Calvinistic Methodists were held on New Year's Day. At four o'clock the tea was laid on the tables for the adults, the school children having previously had their tea; and all who partook of the dainties provided, enjoyed themselves im- mensely, the remarks on all hands being that the tea was a grand success, one circumstance which went a long way towards bringing-about so ex- cellent a result being the fact that the necessary material had being procured under the superin- tendence of Mrs Llugwy Owen is Prees.

R-C.A., the well-known artist, hiQpened liis animal exhibition of his own paint- in in yvater-colours and oils. A few of these which h'j already been seen in the Huddersfield Art S-ety's exhibition it is unnessarv to reter to, as th have already been noticed in our columns; bttentiol1 may properly be drawn to several pijres riot hitherto exhibited in Huddersfield. Ir,ediately on entering the place the visitor will bltruck with a very fine view of Port Dinorwic, w an extensive foreground aglow with masses ofjlden blossomed ragwort, studded with mar- qtjtes and thistles. The distances and sky ef-ts are good, and the picture is altogether b«ltiful. A Summer's Day at Port Dinorwic dt,-t-, an old Welsh woman seated in the open ai knitting, with a tranquil view of the Menai Stits and the Anglesea coast spread out before he There is a very nice feeiing and tone about th work. Another picture of "Port Dinorwic Ba" depicts very cleverly water and weedy bojers on the m irgin in a strong light, and the dei are admirably tre ited. A Quiet After- no," shows Conway and the Castle, with a tisl.t" vessel in the rive,. and a nice view up the 'P stran. The picture, while broad in style, has irnp suggestive detail, and the bright, yet soft atiosphere of a fine day after frost, with its blue hag has an impressive charm. Lnshipping th, Cargo" is decidedly an artist's picture, cl<erly depicting effects of a style in which Mr N her wood excels. It is a view of a portion of C«uvay Quay, with a vessel being unloaded, and a n,iber of busy figures about. The after-effects of rajt with everything wet and shimmering in the sqight, which is strugg ing through the grey-blue cl ,ds and atmosphere, are exceedingly true and ef.ctive, the drawing is excellent, and the picture issliiltul and iinconvential. "Butter-cups and alsies is a charming picture of a local scene, atgradley, which every resident of Huddersfield aq the district who sees it will recognise. It dc,icts the view on a bright, sun-shiny spring day, will admirable composition in the foreground, wi-re two children are on the old steps of a stile, ner a wall, with a basket of the flowers which gif the work its title. The figures and landscape ar admirably drawn and coloured, and the dis- taces are good. Moel-y-Don Ferry, Anglesea," will a view of Port Dinorwic, and Snowdon in th. distance, is very fine in depth of colouring and di[ances, and the sky effects and lighting are exceedingly good. Another extreme of atmos- pheric conditions which Mr Netherwood excels in depicting is strong sunshine from a cloudless sky in very hot weather. A beautiful example of his abilitv in this line is to be seen in A July Day at Aber," in which the drawing is good, the colours clear and bright without being overdone, and the light and shadows cleverly managed. Late Autumn and An Autumn Flood," companion views taken on the stream at Aber, are remark- ably strong and beautiful pictures, the trees and boulders being very fine, the rushing foaming water de'. idediv forceful and faithful, and the colouring very rich. Two other companion pictures of lower tones are also exceedingly good, namely -"Stormy Weather, Great Orme's Head," and "Little Orme's Head." The latter is par- ticularly bold, and yet finely painted. These are all water-colours, but amongst Mr Netherwood's collection are some very fine oil paintings, previously noticed in these columns. We have pleasure in advising art connoisseurs to go and view the collection." THE BOGUS SCHOLASTIC FRAUD SENTENCE. Yesterday, January 2nd, at Carnarvon County Hall, before the Lord-Lieutenant and numerous magistrates, at the Carnarvonshire Quarter Ses- sions, John Paget alias William Ridley Carr alias Henry Parker, etc., etc., an alleged Anglo- Indian scholastic agent, was convicted of obtain- ing by false pretences at Conway, and was sen- tenced to twelve months hard labour.—Mr James Porter prosecuted, and Mr J.
