IOq- THE REV OWEN EVANS AT THE WESLEYAN SUNDAY SCHOOL CONFERENCE.—At a Sunday School Conference held at Rhyl, on Thursday, April loth, by the Welsh Wesleyans of North Wales, the Rev. Owen Evans (of Conway) read a paper on "Preparatory study as an essential to the success of the Sunday School." He agreed that both teacher and scholar should study, as the scholar would not be able to ap- preciate the fruits of the labour of the teacher unless he also had laboured. What was study? (i), To fill the mind with the subject under notice. (2), Meditation. This was as necessary to the mind as digestion was to the body. It was not that which was eaten that nourished, but that which was digested. (3) .Systematic attention to the Bible; a careless reading of it did no good. The Bible had suffered more in this direction than any other book. It was a few who attempted to study in chronological order the events that marked the life of Christ. In what way ought the Bible to be studied? (I), It should be ap- proached with an open mind. (2), It should not studied with any theological prejudicies. (3), The Bible itself should be studied; expositors being regarded as helps only. (4), An endeavour should be made to reajise the object of each book, and (5), The Bible should be approached in a devotional spirit.—The dicussion which followed was opened by Mr William Williams, Dolgelley, and participated in by Mr Pierce, Holywell, and others, and Mr Evans was heartily thanked for his paper.

CHILDREN'S CONCERT AT LLANGWSTENIN.— Last week, under the presidency of Capt F. W. Stubbs, a concert was given in the Pensarn Schoolroom by the children of the parish, the majority of the performers being members of the National School. The following was the pro- gramme :-School song, Sunny Hours," School Children song, La Pepita," Edith Rogers song, "The Wanderers," four Boys duett, Mistress Mary," G. Wood and E. Davies; song (with chorus), "The Funny Clown," E. Oliver; song, "What are Babies for?" three Girls; song, The Tin Gee-gee," Gwyn Davies song, Who killed Cock Robin?" six Girls reading, What is the News?" Enid Davies song, "He, She, and It" M. Jones and H. Shakespeare; nigger song, So early in the Morning," ten Boys school song, The pretty wayside well," School Children duett, Juanita." M. V. Owen and F. Oliver; song, "Pickles," seven Girls; song, Poor old Joe," Gwyn Davies recitation, Dolly Town," A. Foulkes song, Merry little Milkmaids," eight Girls; song, "Ten little Nig- ger Boys," ten Boys Welsh song, The land of our Fathers," M. V. Owen; song, "The worst girl in School," E. Rogers song, Topsy's song (uncle Tom's Cabin), L. Lunn song, The Emperor Napoleon," ten Boys school song, Some Folks," School Children finale, God Save the Queen."—The groups of school- children rendered their songs very successfully the same applies to Miss Edith Rogers, Bodhyfryd, who shows promise of a really good voice. The duett Mistress Mary was well given and well received Miss Gladys Wood, of Pabo Hall, as Mistress Mary" looked very pretty with her watering-can and basket of wild flowers while Miss Enid Davies, of the Rectory, distinguished herself, both in this piece and in her reading of "What is the News," by the clearness of her voice and the calmness of her demeanour. The Funny Clown," given by Miss Edie Oliver, is dis- tinctly worthy of mention the singer, for so young a child, possesses a remarkable strong and clear voice. The six girls who rendered The Death of Cock Robin," took two verses each, the chorus being sung by the school Chil- dren this was certainly worthy of the encore it received. "He, She, and It," was both enter- taining and amusing to the wee mites who sang it great credit is due It espectally did its part well The duett "Juanita," was very sweetly sung." The audience was then treated to a laughable piece called Merry little Milk- maids," the performers which came to the stage with pails, stools and baskets, and in the course of the song went through the pantomime of milk- ing, churning, and carrying the butter to market, the actions being all good. Last but nut least, we were amused by Nigger-Boys first in the song So early in the Morning then in the old- established piece Ten little Niggers boys," in which the little darkies die off in the approved fashion and lastly in "The Emperor Napoleon," the words dropping oft one by one and nods taking their place, until the last verse is all nods and no words, to the intense amusement of the audience. The accompanists were Mrs Davies. the Rectory Miss Etta Wood, Pabo Hall; Miss Higgins, River View; and Mr Rogers, Bodhyfryd. Before the close of the performance with the National Anthem, the Rector proposed a vote of thanks to those ladies and gentlemen who had so kindly given up their time and services in training the young children, and he also congratulated the performers for the way in which they had gone through the programme.
