Evans, West End Stores, a very interest- ing debate took place. The subject was, "Which exercises the greater influence on, society, talent or cha,r¡acter? Miss Amelia C. Ellis, Cynlas, opened the discussion with a comprehensive paper in favour of talent," to which Miss Oilys Owen, Highfield, replied with an equally excellent paper on character," and the matter was then left for open discussion. The follow- ing who took part were the Rev. T. M. Jones, Messrs. S. Owen, S. Jones, Thomas Owen, and J. G. Jones. On the question, being put to the vote, the majority was carried by 11 ch-aracteT."

THE MARVELLOUS ANDRES.—The suc- cess which attended the performances given by Mr. and Mrs. Victor Andre at the Victoria Pier Pavilion last week as reported in our columns has encouraged the clever pair to. continue their entertainment throughout this week (excepting last night (Wednesday) The performances are such that one visit does not suffice, and there have been amongst the audiences a large num- ber who have paid repeated visits. The enter- tainment has a magnetic influence in drawing the public to the Temple of Fun and Mystery. There is a continual change in the programme, including the musical combination introducing harp, post horns, bugles, cornet, piano, violin, and songs and duets are given by the sisters Lynton (Grace, Winnie, and Edna). The lattei is a gifted soloist, far above the average, ^here is also a clever up-to-diate tableaux, Boy Scout." All the foregoing are extra to the Dream Visions of Mrs. Andre, and the con- juring and ventriloquial performances of Mr. Victor Andre. All who desire a capital two hours' entertainment should not fail to pay a visit. DEATH OF MRS. SUMMERS.-We deeply regret to record the death of Mrs. Sarah Eliza- beth Summers, wife of Mr. A. H. Summers, of Glen Bank, Old Colwyn (cashier at Messrs. Porter and Elcook's, Colwyn Bay), which sad event took place in. London on Saturday, at the age of 25 years. The greatest sympathy is felt with Mr. Summers, who was only married about eighteen months ago. THE RAILWAY MOTOR SERVICE.—The popularity of the railway motor service of the London and North-Western Railway Company between Llandudno. and Colwyn Bay is increas- ing, as is shown by the large number of pas- sengers who avail themselves of the opportunity of this easy and pleasant mode of travelling. Siome disappointment is, however, occasioned that the cars do not make Mochdire a place of call.. THE REV. SETH JOSHUA'S VISIT.—This popular evangelist will commence his week's mission, at the English Presbyterian Church on Sunday, and the services will be continued dur- ing the week. Mr. Joshua is very popular in. North Wales, and has a wonderful power ovet his congregations. RHIW C.M.

It should appeal particularly to Welshmen and all admirers of gallant little Wales. Everyone should make a special effort to see Welsh, the undefeated Taffy. This special series of pictures will of course be in addition to the usual, miscellaneous programme. .P BILLIARD MATCH.—The following mem- bers of the Colwyn Bay Constitutional Club have been selected to play against Colwyn at the club, on Friday:-Messrs Walter Groom, A Pol- litt, T.

J. Chamberlain, on Apprenticeships." Amongst those who took part in the discussion was Mr T. Barker, Colwyn Bay, whose speech is fully reported in The Hairdressers' Weekly Journal." Mr Barker warmly supported the propo'sed system of regis- tration of apprentices. He also bore testimony to the value of the Guild's certificate, which, ex- hibited in his saloon, was noticed b ymany cus- tomers, who obtained the idea that he was by his connection with the Guild a good workman. (!Hear, hear.) So the Guild nad an influence in the country quite outside its ordinary work. (Ciheers.) MUSICAL.—At lasit weeik's consent of the Ex- celsior Swimming Club, a most favourable im- pression was created by the singing of Edith Shield, whose name was inadvertently omitted from our report.

As this is a vital question for Col- wyn and district, Mr Hughes wishes us to invite all ratepayers interested to attend. HARDY BATHERS.—In spite of the bitterly cold weather we have been experiencing of late, a number of local swimming enthusiasts con- tinue to indulge in their favourite hobby, and any morning at an early hour some dozen bath- ers may be seen disporting themselves in tne icy water. A few days ago. an excellent photo- graphic group, with the Pier Pavilion as a back ground, appeared in the Daily Dispatch and the Daily Sketch." The photo was taken by Mr C. R. Chaplin, and portrayed Superintend- ent Thomas Ber-esford, Master Tom Beresford, P.O. William Jones, P.C. Joseph Jones, Mr D. Curtis, Mr Norman Curtis, Mr H. W. Curtis, Mr Oiwen Davies, and Mr H. Egerton Thomas. Strangely enough, the bathers do not, belong to any club, and so disrobe and attire themselves whilst fully exposed to the wintry blast.
