THE RICHARD CONWAY MEMORIAL.—A movement is on foot to establish a memorial to the late Mr. Richard Conway, C.C., who was for a considerable period, over half a century, one of the pioneers of Llandudno as a health resort. Mr Conway was close upon completing thirty-five years' service as people's warden of the parish when he died, and it was intended to celebrate the event in a worthy manner had Mr. Conway lived to complete that period. A meeting was held in the St. George's Church Room on. Friday evening, presided over by the Rector (the Rev. Ll. R. Hughes), and amongst those present were Dr. Dalton, J.P., the Rector's warden, and Mr. Nathan, Jones, the people's warden.

PERSONAL.—Much regret was occasioned in the district by the tidings of the death, at the ripe age of 82 years, of Miss Sarah Dawson, sister of Mrs. Mary Dawson, Tower View, which occurred at her residentoe, 2, Guilford Lawn, Dover, on November 25th. The late Miss Daw- son, although residing in Dover, did not limit her benefar-tioigs to that district, but was ever ready to support any movement that appealed to her. (She was a liberal subscriber to the Railway Mission Room at Llandudno Junction, which on Sundays was put at the disposal of the English Presbyterians, who ultimately built a church of their own. She at one time sub- scribed to the Congo Institute (now the African Institute), at Colwyn Bay, and was very gener- ous in sending parcels of tea, sugar, &c., for the old women, and sweets for the children at the Conway workhouse, and needless to say the recipients appreciated the gifts all the more be- cause of their having been sent from such a long distance away. Many charitable institu- tions will miss hear kindly aid. The interment took place on St. Andrew's Day in the family grave in Highgate Cemetery, London, where her parents and younger sister had been laid to rest long years before, the officiating clergy be- ing the Revs. J. A. Armstrong and Clarence Gill. The chief mourners were Mr J. Roger Dawson (nephew), Mr. T. B. Bishop (nep hew-in-law), Dr. Maxwell, Mr H. W. Mowle, and Mr H. V. Headerley. There were also at the graveside Miss S. Powell (cousin), Mrs. Elizabeth Berry (niece), Mrs. Berry (junior), Mrs. Annie Butler and Miss Rhind.

The display of Llandudno at Llanrwst was very encouraging, and the Cor- morants hope on this occasion to put the issue beyond doubt. The Llandudno committee should receive every financial support from their sup- porters on Saturday, as the two previous contests were financial failures owing to the wretched weather.

A FAITHFUL DOG.—County Councillor Hugh Owen has an old and faithful collie. It was a great favourite of Mr Owen's late wife. The poor animal is practically blind and de- crepit, yet it seems to divine its! owner's move- ment, in every way. The faithful dog can be seen awaiting its owner's return to the house by the gate, and there is a touch of pathos m the manner in which it proceeds to the house in a halting manner, and gives murmurs of evident pleasure at the return of his master.

Hughes, Stanley Stores, who is nothing unless a Liberal to the core. Amongst those present were the Deputy-Mayor of Conway (County Councillor Hugh Owen, lsfryn), the Rev. Henry Jones, &c.

The main street is now lighted by the primitive method of oil, and Mr. Hugh Owen suggested that they try and come to an arrangement with the man who has the contract for lighting to bring his services under the old arrangement to an end. It was deemed a pity to be burning oil when gas was now available. Mr. Raynes thought it would be burning the candle at both ends to have oil and gas. Mr. Levi John, the surveyor, stated that if they used gas they would still have two lamps to light with oil at the Pen- sarn end, because of the gas mains not going so far. The matter was left in the hands of the Clerk to try and come to an arrangement.

GLAN CONWAY. DEATH OF MR. MASON,—We regret to announce the death of Mr Phillip Frederick Mason, of The Rosery," Glan Conway, which sad event took place on the 26th November, at the ripe age of 84 years, Mr. Mason was a native of Manches- ter, but had been resident in the district for about twenty years, and was a much-respected and venerable resident. The funeral took place on the Monday following at the Parish Churchyard, the Rector, the Rev. Griffith Williams, officiating. Amongst, the chief mourners were Mrs Mason (widow), Mr. H. Mason (son), Mr. L. Rivett (son-in- law), Mr. H. Rogers Jones, Mr. and Mrs Whittaker, Deganwy Mr. Thos. Evans, Oaktield. Several wreaths were sent. A TEMPERANCE EVENING. On Friday evening, under the auspices of the Bryn Ebenezer Literary and Debating Society, a meeting was held under the chairmanship of Mr. R. Hughes, Felyn Ucha. A splendid address,'in his most eloquent and convincing style, was given by the Rev. Robert Williams, M.A., upon temperance, and another learned address by Miss Looms, Victoria Terrace. Interesting competitions were also held in singing and spelling, the successful competitors being Master Owen Hughes and Miss Owens. The evening was a pleasant one in every respect. AN ANTIQUATED CUSTOM.—Some old cus- toms in rural places die hard. But there exists in these days of social advancement a custom that is more worthy of the first days of railway travelling. For instance, passengers alighting at the Railway Station, after dropping down on to the low plat- form, are obliged to congregate together at the gate to await the departure of the train on its jouriiey and the advent of the porter to unlock the gate and receive tickets. This is a custom that should be obsolete a generation ago. And further, when passengers run at the last minute for the last train, the gate is locked, and passengers may have to lose the train through this irritating custom. Surely we are now in a sufficiently advanced age to have such a thing rectified and the convenience f passengers studied more. Mr. Lane is one of t he most genial of stationmasters, and if he could .c ring about this reform he would be in the eyes of the public more genial still.
