The children dispersed about 7 o'clock after spending a very pleasant afternoon. A QUESTION.—A correspondent writes us as follows, over the llom-de-plume Waterless "Sir,—As you are supposed to know pretty well everything under the sun, can you tell me, and others, why the water in different parts of the town is turned off during the early hours of the morning, just at the time that people want the water for their breakfasts ? If you cannot tell us, sir, perhaps the Borough Surveyor's attention will be drawn to this inconvenience." DEATH OF MRS. ALFRED SLOCOMBE.—Many of our readers will regret to hear of the death last Sunday, May 3rd, at her residence, Hampstead (London), of Mrs Alfred Slocombe, who, as Miss Griffith, prior to her marriage with Mr Alfred Slocombe, R.C.A.) was associated with her sister (now Mrs H. Clarence Whaite) in the keeping of the Harp Hotel, Conway, as one of the foremost hostelries in the neighbourhood. She leaves a widower and four children (two sons and two daughters) to mourn her loss.—The funeral took place on May 6th, at Hampstead Cemetery. THE C.M. CHAPEL LITERARY AND DEBATING SOCIETY'S SOIREF,The first soiree in connection with the above-named Society was held in the Carmel (Conway) Calvinistic Methodist Chapel Schoolroom, on Thursday evening, April 30th, when between 70 and 80 persons sat down to the excellent fare provided by the well-known caterer Mrs J. A. Jones, of the Aberconwy Hotel. After the President of the Society (Rev T. Gwynedd Roberts) had asked a blessing, the party applied themselves to the comestibles put before them, namely, tea, coffee, cold beef, ham, cakes, etc. When justice had been done to the inner man (and woman), the tables were cleared for intellectual justice to be done. The programme was as follows :—Congregational hymn-tune, Hamburg address by the Chairman (Rev T. Gwynedd Roberts); song, Llythyr fy Mam," Mr John Williams (Bank); recitation, Mr Robert Roberts duett, Y ddau Forwr," Messrs J. Williams and T. R. Jones address, Mr W. G. Williams (chemist) impromptu speech recita- tion, Mr J. Williams (Bank).—The Chairman, in his address, said that, although the Session just ended was the first, he was very pleased at the number of young folks that attended. He hoped that the next Session would commence early in the winter months. He exhorted his listeners to read books,—good books,—and to read them with a purpose, and not in a desultory manner. He said that some novels were written with the aim of doing good. He wanted those who read to apply themselves to think what they were reading,
