What one Hears. [N.B.—We do not necessarily endorse any of the opinions reported under this heading.—ED. W.N.] A Vicar's wife did not Christen the Woods, but declared them re-open "for the pleasure, the benefit and well-being of Colwyn Bay." A Vicar opened that which had not been for- mally opened in the name of the town. That the Ceremony of re-opening the Woods has done more towards closing them for ever is 110 doubt true, in the narrow spirit and small mind that allows vindictiveness and uncharitableness to supplant good of the neighbour and the barest justice to the Town." That there were people in the Woods to receive those who were going to open them," but the numbers of our friends went entirely unknown and unasked by any one connected with the movement, and those of our enemies, if any, were conspicuous by their quiet behaviour, as became any such, before so large ana united a meeting." "That a pavilion in the Ballast-pit to be of any attraction would c,stfroin 15 to 1800 pjuuds sterling, according to recent estimates, and this ttie ratepayers could have nothing to do with, and a syndicate would at once see that the whole surroundingii-dead level of masonry, bridge, and property close by,—render the place unfit for ornamental grounds, fountains, ete. That there is but one thing this Ballast pit can be easily converted into, and that is a canoe lake with the slopes planted with evergreens, which has been so successfully done at Ryde, Isle of Wight." That this would give a lively sceue, with canoes, skiffs, and gondoliers, and model-yacht racing." That the expanse of water would give a bright break in the monotony of this barren area of ground. That this would make a vast improvement to the locality." That what is wanted, and what is actually coming, is a handsome Promenade Pier from the centre ot the Bay, and a first-class Concert Pavilion (at the shore end) for evening concerts of an order second to none, and at the sea end of the Pier a Baud stand for morning free concerts." That a fiat-bottomed States-designed passenger steamer is to run, from the Pier end. trips to the Menai Straits, returning in the early evening, brJlIging passengers from LUndudno Pier en route from Liver. pool to Colwyn Bay." That there is ample water for this kind of boat at all tides. That this has been done successfully at Ramsey for 20 years,.with no grand Menai Straits." That the Pavilion is to be so constructed as to prevent any noise of trains." '• That the Railway embankment is to be grown up with shrubs and fringed with small trees, to hide the railway completely." "That gentlemen having influence with the Railway authorities, are solicited to interest themselves to obtain this improvement to the sea-front." "Tnat when these absolutely necessary require- ments are obtained for the Bay,then "some thousands" would not only be drawn to the bay, but would stop in it, and not have need to go further on. That people would not need to be enticed to come here,-they would come, naturally, drawn by the construction in entertainment they look for, and are ready to pay for, at the sea-aide, added to the natural charms of the Woods and walks they cannot get elsewhere on this coast. That Colwyn Bay cannot afford to lose one walk or any part of the Woodsit wants all and more than it can get, all at once, to make it strong enough to keep people going further on." That the writer may spin a few rhymeless lines on the praise of Colwyn Bay." That these Woods will only take care of them- selves when in the absolute possession of the Town That the Hay has been busier for some months past, applies only to chemists—intent on curing depressioii-due to loss of trade." "That the Pier and Pavilion wants about one hundred and fifty pounds subscribing by this Town to get the application through Parliament." I'hat this obtained, nothing will stop the accom- plishment of these necessities." That the public are asked to give in their dona- tions to Mr. Stubbs, Solicitor, Public Hall, for early application to Parliament." That this Pier and Pavilion is a complete cure for financial worry, anxiety, as it won't increase the rates, but create trade. That if another Richmond is coming out at the next Lieotion, let him be prepared to fight fo- the recogIllse.1 means of prosperity to-this sea-side town, sinking himself to this end, if necessary." That Jjlandudno would give X20,000, without second thought, to secure such a shaded retreat so near her town, it she had the lucky chance. That she knows on which side her interests lie, and laughs at Colwyn Bay and can afford to do so, thanks to her own efforts." That the writer pens these blank lines with apologi-es to the muses — Beneath the richet foliage In shady silent Woods Where wood-doves' plaintive notes, and birds' sweet song, Soft sounding through the leafy shade, Awaken in the heart new harmonies of peace, Beguiling steps to linger and the mind to rest— Through hanging leafy festoons, Reaching Olive laurel banks, Our eyes behold spring lights across the sea, Pale blue and silver, liquid sapphire deepening in a coolness wafted song—the brow- 'Twas here, I met the fairest maiden E'en in radiance far outshining Gems of red and blue and starry white Bright fluwerets on my path- And on her breast I placed an ivy-trail io speak the eloquence o. const.uicv I vowed The while, deep-drinking in the love No passion could intensify But woodland Nature in her wooing moods Made perfect tenderness too deeply wrought 1"01" poets song, or sages sentiant work ° ""m' n,e'dows- CRRUT°UO:R;S,- ™™D Yield the rich background of a lovely Scene.- J hus owns this favored place the rarest primal charm Irua artists, sons of Nature, closely cherish Ana, ever lingering in the memory far away, Come lIlurwen, of the Woods and sea of Colwyn Hay."

Bank Holiday at Colwyn Bay. This beautiful seaside resort received the benefit of this year's extraordinary August rush to the seaside," though, more fortunate than some of its competitors for public favour, it attracted the week-enders and ordinary visitors more largely than the day-trippers (who for the most part gave it the "go-by"). Colwyn Bay, indeed, appeals rather to the cultured and the high-class visitors than to the go-ahead multitude, to those who desire opportunities for cloistered calm (or to be more precise, sylvan solitude in woodland aisles) rather than to everlastingly pose or frolic per- petually amidst a lively kaleidoscopic crowd. For the upper ten thousand" Colwyn Bay has peculiar attractions and, whilst those not like- minded find no lack of amusement, the aristo- cratic and upper middle classes, whose advent is so desired at better-class watering-places, seem to be recognising by a fair share of their patron- age the peculiar charms of Colwyn Bay. Such is probably a good explanation of what helped to give such a noticeably high-class character to the varying appearances of precincts of the town on the afternoon of August Bank Holiday, 1896. The weather, which on the preceding day was gloriously warm and fine, was not quite so pro- pitious on the summer's day whereon the Feast ot St. Lubbock is wont to be celebrated. The morning outlook was dull and hazy. and the indications were not altogether unsuggestive of a wet day. But fortunately the rain kept off, and the outlook improved as the morning wore on, the dulness of the landscape being at shortening intervals relieved by gleams of sunshine, until at coach-starting time there was a very fair chance of the fine day which was enjoyed to the utmost by those fortunate enough to secure a seat on Mr Edwin Jones's "Loop Tour" Coach, which started quite full. Another four-in-hand coach was engaged by a private party wishful to spend the day at Bettws-y-coed, whither another similar vehicle (which, like the others, was excellently horsed and skilfully driven) also proceeded. Hackney-carriages also were well patronised during the day, and many of the charming drives in the neighbourhood received a goodly share of inspection from those indisposed for pedestrian rambles. As the far-famed Pwllycrochan Woods are now open and the new Promenade had been sectionally open since Saturday, visitors afoot had every chance of forming a favourable impres- sion of the place, and they swarmed on the beautiful beach and into the deep shady woodland walks, or up into the moorland paths in the country back of the Flagstaff, or up to the heights of Bryn Euryn (whence panoramic views were enjoyed to perfection). Others, again, visited Llandrillo Church, and the adjacent Vicarage gardens with their splendid feast of brilliant colour in the shape of the noted begonia-beds, and it is to be hoped that few neglected to patronise the box placed so temptingly to invite contributions for a deserving parochial object. At Rhos-on-Sea, the Pier was patronised, though rather more sparingly than its attractions de- served. But to return to Colwyn Bay itself, after noting, by the way, the manv cyclists awheel on j the principal roads. The town was enlivened by the music discoursed by Schofield's Town Band, the lower end of Station Road by the playing of the Mysterious Minstrels, and the beach by fore- noon and afternoon performances of Schofield's Royal Osborne Minstrels mirth never seems to degenerate into unseemly buffoonery. Bathing was indulged-in by many, and the local fleet of pleasure-boats was also well occupied in pro- viding enjoyment for those who are able to take delight in swift movement over a summer sea. Throughout the livelong day juveniles were to be seen riding sleek donkeys along too shingle or the sands, while their elders promena led in the vicinity or accorded their meed of patronage to "The Nine Commandments (as the seats placed on the Promenade had already been nick-named). In the evening, the Rev J. G. Ha worth presided, at the Church-room, over a lecture by Dr Zay- toun, on "The Druses."
