PICTURE THEATRE.—This week Mr. Harry Reynolds enters upon his second year's run with animated pictures at the Public Hall. The popu- larity of the cinematograph is unquestionable. By it thousands of different stories can be told and thousands of different places pictorially described. The cinematograph instructs and amuses. Its grip upon the populace, therefore is not only remarkable but deserving. Week by week excellent programmes new to Colwyn Bay have been submitted. A bi-weekly change, i.e., every Monday and Thursday, is now in vogue. This week's special anniversary programme in- cludes Autumn in the Forest," which gives an excellent panorama of the woody spots of oOid England. We see a beautiful scene through the trees all now beginning to shed their leaves. Here and there we break into a more open and extended view which allows the rays of the sun to be seen piercing through the thick tree tops. The Artist's Revenge pictures in a clever manner the way in which a struggling artist gets square with an art dealer who has fleeced him in a transaction. The Better Way tells of a Puritan maiden compelled on account of the poverty of her aged mother to marry an old squire whom she did not love and causing bitter disappointment to a young lover. Oh, Uncle," is a very laughable film. Uncle visits his supposed single nephew, whose wife for the time being is transformed into the servant. Uncle is ardent in his flirtations with the sup- posed servant, and interesting complications en- sue. However, all ends happily and uncle is very pleased that his nephew has such a charm- ing wife. A dash to death is a most thrilling episode in which a runaway car dashes down a precipice. But the item of the evening, judged by the amount of enthusiasm it created, was the subject Sexton Blake, detective." The comedy numbers are Invisible Dog," Mrs. Clark's birthday," Good Cigars," and Glass of Goat's Milk." A PRIZE GUESS.—Much amusement was created at Friday's meeting of the Liberal Asso- ciation, when the popular Hon. Secretary, Mr. Tom Roberts, found himself made the recipient of a more or less handsome prize. At ihe time of the election some of the Liberal workers meeting in Sir Herbert's committee rooms went m for a guessing coi'.npetiiition. Some of Ithe guesses were very modiest, going down to so low a figure as Soo, but Mr. Roberts ventured a guess of something over 2,000, and, being the highest, he was the nearest the mark. To his surprise, he was on Fridav evening awarded a prize, nothing 1€SS than a loving cup (possibly of silver, but certainly of local manufacture), the gift of I Jonathan Roberts, the veteran and trusted '-iberal organiser, by whom the presentation was uiade in humorous little speech. Mr. Tom Ro- berts made a happy response, and bore off his reward in triumph. JNCREASE OF Y.M.C.A. MEMBERS.—As a result of the efforts of a special campaign which had for its object to increase the member- ship of the local Association of the Y.M.C.A., a ja-ige number of young men have joined in the tvf* ^evV weeks. During the past four months e 1 membership has increased by over forty per and others join daily. The building sh°'Wa as ^roderw, in the Conway-road, will °rt'y be equipped as an hotel and association open in March, when the present premises In the .Penrhyn-road will be vacated. CONGRATULATIONS TO SIR HERBERT. -At Friday evening's meeting of the re-formed Liberal Association, presided over by Mr. John Crompton, Jr. Fred Griffiths proposed a vote of congratulations to Sir Herbert Roberts upon his magnificent victory. This was seconded by the Rev. Thomas Lloyd, supported by Mr. Bamford, and carried amidst an exceptional display of enthusiasm. Tributes were paid to the work done by Mr. Crompton and the other officers of the Association, all of whom were cordially thanked. LIBERAL ASSOCIATION.—For certain reasons the Liberal Association was disbanded before the election, and a meeting of workers and sympathisers for the purpose of re-forming it was held in the Lecture Hall on Friday even- ing. Mr. John Crompton presided over-an ex. cellent attendance, and great enthusiasm pre- vailed. A resolution was unanimously passed to re-start the Association. All the officers being re-elected until the next annual meeting. It was decided to convert the election committee rooms ln Woodland-road into a Liberal Clubt where the members can meet for discussion and recrea- tion pending the acquisition of more com- modious premises. A hope was expressed that good use would be made of these temporary quarters with a view to bringing the Liberal forces in the town together. HOCKEY MATCH.—On Saturday a Hockey Watch on roller skates was played at the Queen's Skating Rink, Rhyl, between a Rhyl quintet and a team representing Colwyn Bay. As on formei occasions when the teams have met Rhyl proved too strong for their opponents and won rather easily by six goals to one. The Colwyn Bay Players have no opportunity for practice, and In consequence their Rhyl rivals generally have matters all their own way. The Rhyl team, which has yet to. meet defeat, was composed as iol]ows.—p. Seeds, F. Drake, A. Hughes, F. "ells and R. Roberts. Reserves: W. Walton and S. Arthur. Colwyn Bay's original selection ^'aS Wildman, J. Jones, Findley and A. Davie s. The match was most pleasantly contested, and resulted in a win for Rhyl by six goals to one. BIL,IARDS.- The billiard table is a great attraction at the Y.M.C.A. Rooms, and a tourna- ment which was decided on it this week was supported by a good number of entries. The first prize, a clock, was gained by Mr. W. Ro- berts Mr. G. Pennington won the second prize, a dressing case the third prize, a fountain pen, Went to Mr. F. Bulley Mr. H. Curtis securing a collar box, and MI. B. Wooldridge a stylo- STraphic pen. EXTEXSIOX LECTURE.—The penultimate lecture of the series took place in the Victoria l'ier Pavilion on Tuesday evening, when Mr. I- Martin Duncan, F.R.l'.S., delivered an ad- dress on the subject of The Romance of Plant Life." Dr Harold Nuttall was in the chair, and it was evident that the audience took keen in- terest in the lecturer's remarks upon the wonder- ful works of Nature.
BRONCHITIS AND BLOOD SPITTING Cured by VENO S LIGHTNING COUGH CURE. Mrs. J. Hirst, 37, Byrom Street, High Park, Southport, writes:—" I suffered for over a year from a distressing bronchial cough which nothing could apparently relieve, and I got so low and weak from coughing and spitting phlegm and blood that I could scarcely yvalk. I developed chronic bronchitis, but nothing did me any good, and I tried various so-called cough remedies, until I despaired of ever being better. At last I tried your wonderful Cough Cure, the first bottle relieved me, and now I am quite cured and as well as ever." Veno's Lightning Cough Cure is a perfect remedy for coughs, colds, bronchitis, asthma, influenza, blood spitting, nasal catarrh, child- ren's coughs, and all chest and lung troubles. Price gy^d., is. Ilzd., and 2s. 9d., of all chemists. 5th BATT. ROYAL WELSH FUSILIERS, I G COMPANY.-Orders: Monday, 7th Feb., 1910, Recruits training 7.30 p.m. dress, optional.

Heap and Sons for cleaning the windows and partitions of the Boys', Girls' j and' Infants' Council schools, was accepted. RECREATION GROUNDS AT LAST.- Councillor T. E. Purdy deserves all praise for a bold and enterprising stroke which he has accomplished :n the interests of the young men of the district, who for so long have been. crying out for recreation grounds. Mr. Purdy has made himself responsible for the rent of a plot of land, 13% acres in extent, on the Minydon Estate at Colwyn, and a portion will be let off for football, cricket, and other games. We feel sure that Mr. Purdy's action will be appreciated by all sections of the community, because the district is badly in need of recreation grounds of this character, and it is only too evident that the District Council are not in a financial position to embark upon such a scheme. At the same time, we do not think that Mr. Purdy should be expected to bear the burden alone, and feel sure that a number of the wealthy residents of the district will gladly take a share in it. The laid is conveniently and centrally situated, being within easy reach of the inhabitants of Colwyn and Llysfaen as well as those of Colwyn Bay, and when the tram service is extended, will be available to a much larger area. We dio not know whether it is proposed to form a company, but no doubt lI. Purdy will be ready to supply j any information. The ground has been christened The Colwyn Bay AthLetic Ground," and it is hoped that the Football Club's esteemed President, Mr. Walter Whitehead, will kick off on Saturday week, when they play Ban- gor University. It is expected that Colwyn Band will be in attendance. PANTOMINE AT THE PUBLIC HALL.— Next Monday the animated pictures in the Public Hall will be discontinued for a week, as fr. Harry Reynolds is presenting Mr. Nelson j Barrett's No. I. travelling company in the favourite pantomime Cinderella," the visit being for six nights and two matinees. The company will consist of forty star artistes, whilst the mangificent scenery and dresses, the brilliant specialities, the funny comedians and grand chorus and ballet should result in every per- formance attracting a crowded house. Seats may now be booked at Fleet's Music Warehouse, and information regarding prices of admission will be found in the advertisement on our front page. SUNDAY LECTURE.—On Sunday afternoon I an open meeting at which many members and friends were present iiias held at the Y.M.C.A. Rooms. The District Organising Secretary for North Wales, Mr. Charles W. Bates, was in the chair, and Mr. J. W. Adamson gave a helpful address on The work of the Holy Spirit." The Sunday afternoon meetings, and also the prayer meetings, are being verv well attended. ST. DAVID'S DAY DINNER.—At a meet- ing held in the Hotel Metropole, on Tuesday evening, it was unanimously decided to hold a dinner in memory of the patron saint of Wales at the above hotel. Mr. H. V. Doughty-Davies has kindly consented to act as hon. secretary, and Mr. J. Kyfun Jones as hon. treasurer. It is hoped that the dinner this year will be fully representative of the town. AN EXCURSION TO LONDON.—O move- ment is on foot in the town to induce the Rail- way Company to run a special excursion to London on Wednesday, February 23rd, in view of the opening of Parliament, and we under- stand that the Company would consider the matter favourably if it was taken up in a sub- stantial way. In the event of success, the fare would be 12s return, and dining saloon would be provided on both journeys. The ou/tward train would leave Colwyn Bay at about seven in the morning, and the return, would leave Euston about midnight and reach Colwyn Bay at half past five. It would be advisable for all interested to communicate this week with Mr. J. Evans, the goods agent, in, order that the scheme might be proceeded with. THE LATE MRS. PARRY, LLYS ALED.— At Friday evening's meeting of the Colwyn Bay and District Liberal Association, the Chairman, Mr. John Crompton, proposed a vote of sym- path with the Rev. Thomas Parry, J.P., in his sad bereavement by the lamented death of Mrs. Parry. This was seconded by the Rev. Thomas Lloyd, and carried by a silent vote. ENGEDI LITERARY SOCIETY.—Notwith- srtianding the inclemency of the weather, a good audience collected to listen to a most delightful lecture on Welsh hymnology by Mr. O. R. Hughes, M.A., County School, Lianrwst. Mr. ow Hughes is an acknowledged expert on. things concerning the IVelsh language, and seldom has one listened to such dignified eloquence as was displayed by him on this occasion. After treat- ing on the essentials of a good hymn, he traced the history of Welsh hymnology, commencing with the psalms of Edmund Prys and dealing practically with Williams Pantycelyn, and Ann Griffiths. His thorough knowledge of all branches of Welsh literature, his abundant com- mand of the Welsh language, and his intelligent, and sympathetic treatment of the subject com- bined to make the lecture a masterpiece, and to make it one that is well worth repeating on many occasions. Several members testified to the pleasure and edification they had received and were warm in their thanks to Mr. Hughes, and an earnest appeal was made to him to have the lecture published in one of the Welsh peri- odicals. The Rev. R. Roberts occupied the chair. DEPARTURE OF MR. AND MRS. E. E. KELL Y.-It is with mingled feelings of regret and hope that the townspeople have learnt of the impending departure of Mr. and Mrs. E. Edwards Kelly, with their family, for their new home in Australia. On coming to Colwyn Bay from London some five years ago to carry on the drapery and millinery business in Station- road, they were warmly welcomed and soon made hosts of friends, and during that period Mr. Kelly has been piominent in many circles. A Welsh bard of merit, his pen-name being Glan Madog," he has taken a particularly active part in connection with the Royal Welsh National Eisteddfod to be held at Colwyn Bay in September next, and on the occasion of the Proclamation ceremony his verses were ac- claimed by the assembled bards, among them the venerable Archdruid. As may well be understood, he is very reluctant to leave here, but the course has been iendered advisable on account of the health of Mrs. Kelly, who will no doubt derive much benefit from living in the dry, warm climate of Australia. Mr. Kelly will join his brother in business at Melbourne, where we hope that he and his loved ones will prosper in every way and be exceedingly happy. We can assure them that they take with them the good wishes of the whole town. THE COLWYN BAY A.O. AND D.S.—The local amateurs who are now assiduously prac- tising Gilbert and Sullivan's comic opera, "The Pirates of Penzance," have engaged the Victoria Pier Pavilion, together with the Pavilion Or- chestra on April 19th and 20th. The chief roles have been allocated as follows: -Major General Stanley, Mr. D. Llewelyn Jones; the Pirate King, Mr. Wright, Grosvenor Cafe; Samuel (his lieutenant), Mr. J. W. Holden; Frederick (the pirate apprerutice), Mr. Goldsworthy; the Sergeant of Police, Mr. George Mason "Mabel, Edith, Kate and Isabel (daughters of Major- General Stanley), Mrs. Bruce, Miss Edith Shield, Miss Sally Parrv and Miss Rush Ruth (maid of all work), Miss Ida Mervyn Wood. The chorus is larger than any that has ever taken part in an amateur operatic performance at Colwyn Bay, and the room at the Cafe Grosvenor being now too small for the rehear- sals, a spacious apartment over Mr. Askew's has been secured for that purpose, where they are held every Tuesday evening. A UNITED TEMPERANCE MEETING will be held in Church Room on the 18th February next. Further particulars will appear in future issues. VOTES FOR WOMEN.—A public meeting under the auspices of the Colwyn Bay and Col- wyn branch of the National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies, a non-party and non-militant organisation, will be held in the Victoria Pier Pavilion on Wednesday, at 7.30 p.m. The principal speaker will be Mrs. Henry Fawcett, LL.D., widow of the famous blind PostmasteT- General.

Jones, half-backs E. W. Aitken, Ernest Tucker, William Lloyd, Charlie Evans and II. J. Evans, forwards.
ABERGELE. OBITUARY.—It is with sincere regret that I record the death of Owen Meredydd, the 12 months' old child of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Ed- wards (" Pedr Alaw "), Park Villas, which took place after a very brief illness on Friday, and was buried on Tuesday afternoon. Verily, No. 2, Park Villas, has been a house of gloom re- cently. It is only a few weeks since the eldest son was laid to rest. The burial service on Tuesday was conducted by the Vicar, whose references to the overwhelming troubles of the family were touching to a degree. There were some magnificent wreaths, including one From Dada and Mother, in loving memory of darling baby;" "From dear Nain, in great grief;" From his loving little brothers. and sisters;" From Auntie Carrie;" Miss Jones, Prestatyn Misses Plant, Rhyl; and Miss Davies, Park Villas, Abergele. The funeral arrangements were in the hands of Mr. Edward Ellis. Just budding to life like a sweet, young rose, He was called to the realms above He lived on earth in his parents' hearts, And died in. the arms of love. I also much regret to report the death of Mr. James Barlow, who passed away on Friday after: only a few week's illness. The funeral, which was very large, took place on Tuesday after- noon. Mrs. Barlow and family have the sin- cerest sympathy of the whole town in their great distress.—SEARCHLIGHT.
LLANELIAN. A HARD CASE.—At the meeting of the County Education Committee, on Friday, a letter was read from Mr. F. J. Holmes, Colwyn Bay, with regard to the case of Richard Wynne Jones, a scholar at the Llanelian N.P. School; who attended the school for seven years without missing except three attendances through illness, and stating that the Colwyn Bay managers recommended the award of a silver watch. The Committee, however, regretted that they could not see their way clear to depart from regulation with regard to the matter. Mr. Wilcoxon re- ferred t oit as being a very hard case, but he felt sure that regulations would be revised for the future.

MOTHERS' MEETING.—Owing to the large numbers which attend the weekly mothers' meetings, the Tower, which had been kindly lent for that purpose by the Rev. and Mrs. Ll. A. Richards, is no longer spacious enough, and the meetings will in future be held in the As- sembly Room. The work has reached such proportions that Mrs. Richards and Miss Pen- dlebury felt they were not able to cope with it alone, and in consequence Mrs. White, Oak- lands, is kindly assisting them. On Thursday afternoon Mrs. White attended for the first time. The meetings are a great help to the women of the parish, who are allowed to bring their youngest child, and Mrs. C.

The former was proceeding to his work on the railway down Town Ditch, when he slipped and came heavily to the ground. He lay there unconscious until a passer-by came along, and he was immediately taken home, and medically attended.

He quoted several remarkable answers to prayer. He also pointed out how natural it was for men to pray, citing the heathen of modern times and the Athenians in Paul's day. Mr. Davies spoke of the dangers of printed prayer, with which he grouped prayers learned by heart; he said they were apt to become mechanical. Then he spoke of extempore prayer, which he considered more natural, sin- cere, and effective. He laid stress on the need for public and private prayer, and then went on to speak of cases where bodily ailments were cured through prayer. Incidentally he remarked that men ought to use all lawful means to cure the body, as medicine, &c., but to pray as well. During the evening Miss Rowlands sang a solo, There is a green hill far away."

DEGANWY. I THE LEVEL CROSSING.—At the Corpora- tion meeting, on Wednesday, a letter was read from the General Manager of the L. & N.W. Railway Company stating that he had inquired into the matter of the level crossing gates at Deganwy and found that it had been the j practice for many years past to lock the gates y from 8 p.m. on Sunday to 6 a.m. on Monday, and this appeared to have met the public con- venience, and the present was the first complaint he had heard of. As it appeared it would be a convenience if the gates were kept open longer, arrangements were being made whereby the gatemen would be in attendance at the crossing continuously day and night, week days and Sundays. It was decided to thank the Railway Company for the prompt and considerate way they had dealt with the matter.

As the proposals of the North Wales Advertising Board had not been settled, it was felt that it was inadvisable at present to decide and adopt finally any schemes by the Committee and Association for the advertising of the district.
