The Misses McCullagh were at their best, and contributions delighted the audience. The man- doline-playing of Miss Hughes (Brynhyfryd) was much enjoyed. Mr Denbigh Cooper was in eccelient form, and it is hoped that he may he Irore often heard at Conway. Mrs Float's sing-ing was greatly appreciated. Miss Daisy Dutton was a favourite, and her recitations well deserved the applause given. A very happy contribution was the plantation-song (with dance) ot Sergeant Wraight, who was quite at home in his work,-such a neat performance is seldom given by an amateur. The Conway Castle Christys were loudly applauded. This pleasant entertainment was brought to a close by the Vicar proposing a vote of thanks to Mr J. E. Finch am, who kindly acted as chairman.

The Mayor, on taking the chair, said that it gave him very great pleasure to preside over that meeting, to read the report of the work done during the last six months, and to say a few words about the good work done by the Nurse. He then read as follows I'lic Report of the Conway District Nursing Association. —The last f annual meeting was held on the 6th of June, and > it was then decided that in future the financial year should begin in January of each year, and( that the annual meeting should also be held then. ) During the past six months, the Nurse has paid over a thousand visits, and had fifty-one cases on s her books. Much to the regret of the Committee J and of the town, Nurse Kate Jones left in October, but they consider themselves fortunate in having v t a found in Nurse A,inie Roberts a successor equally y t o skilled and proficient iii li?!r woric. They beg to express their thanks to Aliss James, for a verv v e crv kind gift of useful articles for the u.;e of the sick. k s an 'i In June we had a balance of /,6,i I 2'i. id., and fro since then have received in donations Lg 6?,. from r, Mr Albert Wood (proceeds of Sale of floweri), e_, )' and by pavnients and donations for the Nurse's rse -ip services C? 4s- making the total for receipts i ,,684 4s. 5d. The expenditure was 654 4s-, which ,e will leave a balance-in-hand of ^30 os. Sd. to carry on the work. For the Sick Fund, donations amounted to ^4 iis., and the expenditure to i 6s., leaving a balance Of 23 8s. 2d." The Mayor read a letter of apology for non- attendance, from Miss Dutton On the motion of Councillor Dr Prichard, seconded by Alderman Hugh Hughes, the report was adopted. Mr Albert Wood spoke of the excellent financial results and the good work done, and he moved a vote of thanks to the ladies of the Committee of Management, for their great goodness in forward- ing the work. The Vicar, seconding, said that no words were necessary, for the motion commended itself. More and more, the District Nurse was becoming appreciated in Conway. In supporting the resolution, Dr Prichard, said that no one had more reason to be grateful for District Nursing than he had. Conwav had been « the pioneer town in District Nursing in Wales. The present Nurse complained that she had not much to do, and that spoke well for Conway. He had found her very efficient and capable in some severe cases already. If she simplv prevented illness by inculcating the practice of cleanliness and sanitary principles, the ladies would be amply repaid by the increased health of the people of Conway. Alderman Mostyn, on behalf of the ladies, F thanked the meeting for the cordial vote. Dr Prichard moved, and the Rev Owen Evans seconded, a vote of condolence on the death of Mrs David Owen, and the re-election of the remainder of the Committee.—This was carried unanimously and without discussion. Alderman Mostyn moved, and Mr Albert Wood seconded, a vote of thanks to the Mayor, who responded. Alderman Hugh Hughes moved a vote of l! sympathy with Miss Dutton in her illness. She | had done very much for the poor of the town, and he was sure that all regretted her absence that day. j The Vicar seconded the motion, which was carried unanimously. I The meeting then ended with the voicing, by Dr Prichard, of the general thanks to the Hon. 1 reasurer (Hon. Mrs Mostyn) for the successful efforts she had made to secure again for the town the services of a Jubilee Nurse, thus economising C the resources of the Association's funds.
