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.
