SALE OF WORK ATST. GEORGE OPENED BY LADY FLOREMTtA HUCHES. The Village Hall of St George on Tuesday afternoon formed the meeting place of a large company of the elite of the the reason for which gathering was a sale of work organised by the Missea Hughes, of Kinmel, for the purpose of wiping off the debt incurred by the installation of a new organ in the Parish Church. Around the room were displayed, temptingly arrayed, goods of a most varied description. Fancy articles pr&ponderated, but there was no lack of serviceable needlework and woollen goods, and many other things that would stand the wear and tear of everyday use. In fact it .vaa just the sort of sale that people who like to have something for their money, even though in some instances they buy that something at a good deal beyond its shop value, may generally be relied upon to patronise. There was nothing formal about the proceedings whatever, and Lady Florentia Hughes, who had consented to perform the opening ceremony, having dis- charged that duty after having been accorded a hearty welcome by the assembled visitors, the promoters lost no time in getting to business. A fancy goods stall occupying the whcle of one aide of the room was personally superintended by her ladyship, who had the assistance of the Hon Mrs Devcreux, Mrs St John Charlton, and Miss Horatia Hughes. The refreshment department was energetically looked after by Miss Frances Hughes; and at a dainty stall laden with chocolate boxes and other tempting sweetmeats little Miss Daisy Brodrick (daughter of the Hon L A Brodrick, of Coed Coch) was in attendance; while nowers, of which there was a charming variety, were offered for sale by Mrs Calvert and Miss Gilchrist. Amongst those present during the afternoon, in addition to the ladies already named, were the Lord Lieutenant of Flintshire (Mr H R Hughes), Major Hughes, Rev D W Evans (rector of St George), Mrs and the Masters Evans, Rev T W Vaughan (Rhuddlan), Rev David Jones (Abergele), Mrs Bird (Tan-yr-Ogo), Mrs Duccan Miller and Miss Haynes (Abergele), Mrs Walton Evans and Miss Gladys Evans (St Asaph), Miss Mary Heaton and Miss Brooke Cunliffe (St Asaph). the Misses Edwards (The Palace, St Asaph), Mrs Mellor (Tan-y-Bryn), the Misses Ralli (Rhyl), Mrs Jones (Bodoryn, Abergele), the Misses Davies (Llanfairtalhaiarn Rectory), Mrs and M as Foulkes (Hendre- gyda), Misa Pirn, Miss Williams (Bronfelen, Abergele), Mrs Dr Hughes (Abergele), Mrs Aitkfn (Bodelwyddan), Mra Thomas, Mrs Arrowsmith, and Miss Phillips (Abergele), Miss Holloway and Miss Williams (Rhyl), &c. Mr Bradley proved a ready helper in many ways, and others whose assistance proved very acceptable included Mr Gilchrist and several other employees of the Kinmel household. At the close of a brisk afternoon's business, which once again demonstrated the utility of sales of work for purposes such as this was organised for, Lady Florentia Hughes and the Misses Hughes were warmly thanked for the hearty manner in which they had taken the matter up and seen it through.
