FROM THE LINKS: COLWYN BAY. A symphony in green :-the woods along The verdant hill burst into colour-song Here the wild-cherrry strikes its accidental, And there the larch's louder note is strong. A harmony in blue:—the azure bay Meets the cerulean ot the April day; On the still surface,streaked with milkycurrents, A steamer marks for miles its furrowed day. Turn eastward :neat h Llanddulas sharp-defined The idle sails of boats await the wind The curving coast fades softlv into distance, And Rhyl lies hidden in the haze behind. Look to the left, and mark each mirrored form, Where Rhos lies sleeping in the sunshine warm, And, rising bold above its own reflection, The undulation of the Little Orme. Turn inland :-g-aze across the Vale, and lo, The mountains rise in a majestic row From Tal-y-Fan right up to Moel Siabod, And proud Llewelyn wears his cap of snow. Let him still brood on Winter, drear and gray,— For us the birds and bees and lambs at play The spiky gorse aflame with yellow blossoms Lights with a touch of gold our onward way. So, going back to city din and grime, We leave our tribute in this wreath of rime Ours is the dower of all who follow Beauty, And seek her in her chosen place and time. JOHN GAMBRIL NICHOLSON. Bryn Goleu, Colwyn Bay, April 21st, 1896. THE COLWYN BAY GAS COMPANY.—Dr. W. M. Venables-Williams, J.P., has been elected a Director of the Colwyn Bay Gas Company. THE NORTH WALES ENGLISH CONGREGATIONAL UNION'S EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE.— Messrs J. Jones and J. Lewis (both ot Colwyn Bay) were on Wednesday elected members of the Executive Committee of the English Congregational Union of North Wales. THE COLWYN CHORAL SOCIETY'S FIRST CONCERT. The first grand concert of this newly-formed Choral Society was held, at the Assembly Rooms, Colwyn, on Wednesday evening, April 22nd, when the prize-winners at the recent Abergele Eistedd- fod took part. In the unavoidable absence of the Rev J. Griffiths, the presidential chair was occupied by Mr M. Evans (Board School), the accompanist being Miss Nellie Lloyd. The programme was opened, at 7.30. with a piano- forte duett, "The Huntsman's Chorus," the performers being Miss Evans (Brynygwynt) and Miss Nellie Roberts (Mona House). The song Mother's Letter was effectively rendered by Miss Bessie Wynne (Colwyn Bay), who was successful in obtaining a special prize for the rendering of this song. The Colwyn Juvenile Choir (conductor, Mr E. T. Davies) then gave an able rendering of the anthem" Cyssegrwn flaen- ffrwyth ddyddiau'n hoes," and were warmly applauded. Messrs Llew Jones and E. C. Evans sang Y Lili a'r Rhosyn in capital style, they having obtained the prize for this piece at Colwyn Bay. Mr Edward Davies (Colwyn) gave a fine rendering of The White Squall," and was warmly applauded. The song" Aldiberiontiphos- cophorinochronolronlothologus took well. Miss Mattie Lloyd was well received in "A bird in hand," her rendering being most effective. Mr W. B. Jones's Party gave a nicely balanced rendering of "The Schoolchildren's Quartette," and received the warm congratulations of the audience. Mr Llewelyn Jones sang Llewelyn's Gra-e," in truly artistic style. The part-song, -I- Call John," by Mr Henry Williams's Party, was rendered in such a manner as to secure an encore. The Children's Choir again appeared, and rendered "Teach me thy Statutes" with capital expression, and the enthusiastic applause of the audience terminated the first part of the pro- gramme, the second part opening with Isalaw's anthem, Enaid cu," by the Choral Society, followed by the under 16 successful solo at Abergele, namely, Deio Bach," by Miss Bessie Wynne, who obtained the prize out of 13 candi- dates,-the piece was sung with marked careful attention throughout. Messrs Llew Jones and E. C. Evans again rendered the duett Bydd bur i Gymru fad," with most commendable effect, a re- mark which applies also to Mr Ed. Davies's rendi- tion of Pwy fel fy Mam." Mr J. H. Williams's Party gave a capital rendering of the male-voice chorus, Longing," and were warmly applauded. Miss Mattie Lloyd gave a most competent render- ing of The Holy City." The Colwyn Juvenile Choir again rendered the ever-popular Welsh Air "The Bells of Aberdovey," and were well received (as they always are). Mr E. Colwynian Evans sang Y Milwr Clwyfedig," and was warmly applauded.—At this point, the President arose, and said that he had a pleasing duty to perform on behalf of the Colwyn Choral Society, and that was to present Mr Evans (the conductor of the Society) with a silver-mounted rehearsal-baton of ebony, as a recognition of his indefatigable energy with the Choir.—Mr Evans, in responding, thanked the Choir for thus showing their kindly feelings towards him, —by presenting him with so acceptable a testimonial of the good feelings which exist between the Choir and its Conductor. -Mr W. Brookes Jones's Party gave a capital rendering of the quartette Profundo Basso," which was capitally depicted, and was, without doubt, one of the best renderings of a humorous quartette we have heard for many a long year an encore naturally resulted. After the usual vote of thanks, the Colwyn Choral Society, under the new baton, sang Coi-mei-nai-ro," and were vociferously applauded.—The first concert of the Society proved quite a success, and was brought to a close with the singing of the Welsh National Anthem. AN URGENT APPEAL BY THE REV. CANON ROBERTS. We have received from the Rev Canon Hugh Roberts, Vicar of St Paul's, Colwyn Bay, the subjoined appeal, which is deserving of immediate consideration by our readers AN APPEAL. Dear Sir,—Two years ago the Ecclesiastical Commissioners made a Grant of £ 1.000 towards building a Vicarage for this Parish, and a few weeks ago they have again made a further Grant of £500 towards the same purpose, on condition that another £500 be raised by the 1st of May next to meet it, so as to turn over another Li,ooo, making in all £ ,2,000 towards our New Vicarage Building Fund. This will about cover the cost of building the house and walls. This is my first and only appeal in the matter to the locality, but, as there is not a week to raise the remainder of the £500, I beg respectfully to appeal in this way for contributions towards the deficit of £ 180, feeling that such an offer ought not to slip. Contributions towards this urgent object, will be thankfully received at the N. & P. Bank, Colwyn Bay, or by yours faithfully, The Vicarage, HUGH ROBERTS. Colwyn Bay, April 22nd, 1896.
