VISIT OF THE SEALARKS.—On Saturday a welcome visit will be paid by the Sealarks, of Holyhead, who meet the Cormorants in a League fight. Though the Holyhead team was beaten by that of Carnarvon on Saturday at home, that is no reason why Llandudno should regard the Sealarks cheaply. In fact, Llandud- no cannot afford to take any team too cheap. If they do, thereby hangs a tale.

Hughes, M.A., has proved himself worthy of the important post, for he is the broadest minded of men. with a large and sym- pathetic heart, and enters into the joys and sor- rows of his people with a kinship which is worthy of his high calling. We have observed the busy life he has led, and the great good he is doing in the betterment of the people, soci- ally and spiritually, and Llandudno is proud of him. MR. WILLIAM JONES, M.P.—-Our popular Member is the busiest of men, yet through all his activities he always finds time, whenever possible, and that is frequently, to do I all he can to further the interests of Llandudno- in every manner.
