DELIGHTFUL PICTURES.—At the Public Hall this week we are given a magnificent pic- torial representation of Charles Dickens' famous work, Oliver Twist," in which all the princi- pal incidents in the novel are pourtrayed. A very instructive, interesting, and attractive travel scene is the one of Calcutta and its en- virons. "The Call of the Heart" is a new dramatic play, well acted, in picturesque sur- roundings, the main incident in which is the saving by a wife of her husband. This is the means of reconciling the parents to. the marri- age, which had been looked upon, with disfavour. The Right of Seigneurr is a most thrilling drama with a very tragic ending. The views we get of beautiful fountains in The Park of Caserta" are truly magnificent and call forth expressions of dtelight. A very touching story is The blind man's daughter," which shows how a rejected suitor plots to deprive the blind father of his only joy, his, daughter. An abduction is attempted; in the struggle the old man rips away a piece of the villain's clothing, which provides the clue to a speedy recovery. There are other pictures, most diverting, which make up a splendid two hours' enjoyment. To-night fThursdiay) there will be a change of pictures. Next week's programme (which we are assured is an up-to-date one) will be found on. our front page. Look out for Lieutenant Shackleton's Dash to. the Pole."

Birds stall: The Misses Prior. Cakle and sweet stall: Miss Buck- ley and Miss Vincent. Toy stall: Miss Dorothy and Master Charlie Prior. Refreshment stall: Mrs. Roberts, Misses Shepherd, and Mrs. Watts. The Vicar (Canon Roberts) said it was not neces- sary to formally introduce Mrs. Jesse Roberts, late of Walshaw, to a Colwyn Bay audience, and especially to those ladies present. Mrs. Roberts was IhOn. secretary of this Society for many years, and when she left Colwyni Bay he was greatly concerned as to her successor. How- ever, Mrs. Prior came forward and undertook the work with heart and soul, and that sale of work was due to her enterprise, assisted by many friends. They were very pleased to see Mrs. Jesse Roberts amongst them again. (Ap- plause.) Mrs. Jesse Roberts, who was cordially received, said she was glad to see so many old faces. lit: was very kind1 of Mrs. Prior to ask few things that she would not do for the C.M.S. It was like old times being amongst them again, her to open their sale of work for the Church was like old times being amongst them again, and it was a very! great pleasure for her to de- clare the sale open. (Applause.) Mr. David Gamble proposed a hearty vote of thanks to Mrs., Roberts. The Rev. J. Pritchard, Colwyn Bay (formerly of Blackenhall Heath), seconded, and it was carried. Mrs. Roberts briefly re- sponded., During the afternoon Mrs. Schiele, Miss Jones (Plas Isa'), Miss Olive Brooke, and Miss Frances Mobley gave selections upon the pianoforte, which were much enjoyed.
OLD COLWYN. A BIRD NOTE.—The writer of A Country Diary 'in the Manchester Guardian says under date October nth —After the silence of the moult many birds are beginning to sing .again. This morning, about eight o'clock, there was a considerable volume of song; robins were, of course, the most vigorous, but dun- nocks, 'wrens, and house sparrows were also singling freely. On Saturday morning I heard the loud clear notes of the missel-thrush in full song, and my Old "Colwyn correspondent writes that the bird was singing in, his garden on Fri- day, and suggests that it was returning thanks for the feast it had enjoyed in. his beam trees. Yesterday I watched a fair-sized 'party J?f house martinis, accompanied by a few young swallows, passing south-east up the Dane Valley, and I do not for one moment think that these are the last, although there are now very few left in this neighbourhood.

ABERGELE. THE FREE CHURCHES.—Does the Free Church Council, as represented in Abergele, justify its existence? I can scarcely bring myself to believe that it does.

On Sundav, Monday and Tuesday, the Wesleyans held their annual preaching meetings on Wednesday evening, and all day to-day (Thursday), the Independents held similar meetings. Therefore, in the course of one short week fifteen distinct meetings have been held. Do you think that men of the world would arrange matters in such a way as that ? Not a bit of it. The preachers at the Wesleyan chapel were the Revs. David Morris (the new resident minister of the circuit); D. Tecwyn Evans, B.A., Port- dinorwic; and R. W. Jones, Bethesda.

After the ceremony the breakfast was partaken of at the bride's parents' home. In the afternoon Mr. and Mrs. Williams left by train for the Midlands, where the honeymoon will be spent. There were numerous and valu- able presents. It is interesting to note that Mr. Williams, who like hlis bride is exceedingly well-liked in Lianfairfechan and district, has been a member of Christ Church for twenty- five years. WORSHIPPERS' NARROW ESCAPE.—At the Bangor Police Court on Tuesday, Henry Teago, 71, Chapel-street, Carnarvon, who was connected with the roundabouts at the Lianfair- fechan fair, was charged with riding a motor cycle to the danger of the public on the village bridge on, Sunday, the 26th September. De- fendant did not appear, but wrote a letter to the magistrates. -P. C. Charles Williams said that 11.20 a.m. on Sunday, the 26th ult., he saw the defendant riding a motor cycle from the direc- tion of Village-road at a terrific pace, between 25 and 30 miles an hour. At the time there were several people coming from the different places of worship, and the village bridge was crowded with people. It was really a miracle that the defendant got through them without in- juring anybody. Witness called out to the de- fendant to stop and put up his hand, but he took no notice and went up Penybryn Hill at the same rate. Witness followed defendant to the show ground, and asked him why he did not stop when requested, and his excuse was that if he had got off he would have to push his machine up the hill- He was told that he would be reported, and the defendant replied, I must admit I was going at a fast rate." Corrobora- tive evidtence was given by Mr Williams, head- master of the Council School, and Idwal Davies, Valley-road, the latter stating that he never dreamt a motor cycle could Jaket such a hill as Penybryn at the rate defendant was going. A fine of £ 1 and costs was imposed. MATRIMONIAL DIFFERENCES.-For some months past the Bangor magistrates have been endeavouring to settle differences which have oc- curred between William Williams, Pool-street, Lianfairfechan, and his wife, who resides at the Crossing, Aber. The wife applied for a separa- tion order some months ago, and on each occa- sion the magistrates adjourned the case, and ordered the husband to pay 7s. 6d. weekly in the meantime. At the Court on, Wednesday the case was again mentioned, the defendant stating that he had done alii he possibly could to live with his wife and to provid-e a home for her. The wife now informed the magistrates that she did not intend to live with her husband any more. The Bench then decided to revoke the order madle, and refuse to grant the separation order sought for.
BANGOR. THE NEW POST OFFICE.—The handsome new Post Office, built by the Government in the New-road (Ffordd Deiniol), Bangor, is now prac- tically ready for use, and will be formally opened on the 1st November by the Mayor of Bangor and the Post Office Surveyor for the North Wales district. A MONSTROUS JUDGMENT.—At the Bangor County Court on Monday Mr Roger Evans applied for judgment to be set aside in a case in which judgmenlt was obtained by Woolf Jackson, Manchester, against Richard Roberts, Mr Evans stated that the defendant received a letter from Jackson telling him to take no notice of the summons and that the case would be withdrawn. His representative, however, went into Court, and in the absence of the defendant obtaiin,ed judgment.—The Judge set aside the judgment., saying it was a monstrous thing to secure it in that way.
PENYGROES. CHARGE AGAINST A LICENSEE DIS- MISSED.—At Carnarvon, on Saturday, Saran Davies, licensee of the Victoria Vaults," Pe&y- groes, was summoned for permitting drunken- ness. The person who was alleged to have been drunk was R. C. Owen, a Llanberis farmer, who had already been fined.—Mr Jenkins prosecuted on behalf of the police.—For the defence, Mr S. R. Dew said there was no evidence of drink having been supplied. The only witness called on that point was Owen himself, and as he had sworn that he was sober there was an end of the case.—The Bench retired, and the Chairman afterwards announced that they considered tr*- evidence rather weak.—The case was therefore dismissed.

Free Shares in Hydro Electric Power in Klondike. WITH A READY SALE AT 3/. PER HORSE POWER PER DAY WHILE COST. ING ONLY 3d. These profits seem impossible, yet it is an undisputaJbLe fact. We have all heard of the harnessing of the famous Niagara Falls. We all know how these mighty waters have been turned from a roaring wasting torrent into the largest power and light generating station m the world. It is now old history to most of us how water power has superseded steam for hundreds of miles around these renowned Falls. Well, then, the self-same thing is now being done at Klondike, the celebrated gold-fields. Hitherto the users of power for mines, mills, and dredges have used steam for the motive power; and when we mention that the price of coal is £ 5 per ton and wood £3 per cord, the reader will glean an idea of the heavy ex- pense of steam power. Now, however, thanks to a group of enter- prising gentlemen, a Hydro Electric Power plant is being erected in Klondike to supply power to the mines, mills, and dredges at 35. per horse power per 'day. The cost of generat- ing his power is under 3d. per horse power per day. In spite of these enormous profits, users get a more efficient power for a third of the present cost of steam. This water power is capable of developing 20,000 horse power; and- nearly all of the largest Mining Companies of Klondike are applying for this power. There are low grade fields of gold-bearing gravels and quartz to last hundreds of years, to be worked with large profits by cheap power. To enable them to lay down further mach- inery, we have for ,gl3.le a block of the Com- pany's 6 per cent. ten year bonds, with which we give free a like amount of shares as bonuses to every purchaser of the bonds. The Company claim the dividends from the shares for one year alone will pay for the bonds, which can be purchased on easy terms for fi (one pound) upwards.
