Brilliant Weather and a Record Show. A PLUCKY LADY RIDER. One of the happiest men in North Wales on Easter Monday was Mr T. O. Morgan, the genial Secretary of the Conway Horse Show Society, which held its 23rd annual exhibition on the Conway Morfa that day. The brilliant weather over the holidays augured well for the show, which last year suffered considerably owing to a hurricane that was blowing. On Sunday even- ing there were some fears for the weather, but wihen early ;Ionday morniing came round a beautiful sun was shining, with a somewhat cold breeze, but as the morning progressed it be- came much wiarmer. The weather was all that could be desired, and some ladies even went so far as to provide themselves with sunshades. At an early hour crowds of people lined the streets of the ancient town, which presented quite an animated appearance. During the day it is esti- mated that over 3,000 people were dealt with by the railway officials, in addition ito those who walked, cycled, or drove into- the town. This year's President was Mr. John F. Knott, J.P., Nanrtycoed, Daganwy, and he was present on the field throughout the day, and presided at the luncheon given to the Committee and offi- cials. The Vice-President was Mr. David Pritchard, Glanywern, Mochdre, who rendered valuable service on the field. For the last few years Mr. James Porter has acted as Chairman of Committee, and when he resigned this year it was felt that an important breach would have to be filled, and the Committee were fortunate in securing Mr. W. J. [Roberts, auctioneer, Llan- rwst, as a substitute in the chair. For years Mr. Roberts has been an indefatigable worker on behalf off the Show, and on Monday he was early on the field, and remained throughout the day. The Treasurer was again Mr. Owen Rowland, J.P., National and Provincial Bank, and Mr. J. C. Griffith, of the same bank, was the Honorary Auditor. The bulk of the work falls upon the Secretary, and this year again everybody are loud in their praise off Mr. T. 0. Morgan's ser- vices. As an organiser Mr. Morgan has very few equals, and he threw himself heart and soul iruto the work, with the result that there was not a single hitch in. the arrangements, which were absolutely faultless. The Committee, we feel srure, are proud of such an official, to whose ability the success of the show is so largely due. The Show was under the distinguished patron- age of the Right Hon. lord Penrhyn, Right Hem. Lord Mostyn, Sir Charles McLaren, Miss Knott, Miss Dutton, Lady Augusta Mostyn, General H. S. Gough, the Mayor of Conway, Colonel Thomas Gee, Colonel C. H. Darbishire, Colonel H. Lloyd Mostyn, Dr. R. Arthur- Prichard, Dr. John R. Williams. Messrs. George Barker, Ephraim Wood, J.P., D.L., H.

Edwards, Owem Owens, John Whittaker, D. Williams, Philip Fletcher, H. Kneeshaw, J.P., D.L., J. H. Higson, J. Elias Jones, F. A. Garttoy, and Messrs. Robert and Rogers Jones. The following were the General Committee — Messrs. James A. Pollitt, Bryneithin; R. Ellis, Brynpin G. O. Jones; R. Williams, Ty'ny- groes; Hugh Jones, Brynglorian; Edward Ro- berts, Bryn SLriol; .R. Williaans, Meddiant; W. J. Bushnell, Veterinary Surgeon; J. T. Jones, butcher, Conway; Hugh Da vies, Gors. wen James Porter, Muriau Richard Jones, Graiglwyd; David Janes, Llan; Thomas 0.

Light horses: The Right Hon. Frederick Wrench, Killacoona, Ballybrack; Mr. W. For- rester Addie, Powis Castle, Welshpool. Welsh mountain ponies: Mr. Thomas Roberts, Aber, Bangor. Jumping competition The President, The Right Hon. Frederick Wrench, Mr. W. For- rester Addie, Col. the 'Hon. H. Lloyd Mostyn, Mr. James Porter, Mr. Geo. Barker, Mr. Wm. J. Roberts. Pony races: The President, Mr. R. E. Birch, Mr. George Barker. Hon. Veterinary Surgeon: Mr. W. J. Bushnell, M.R.C.V.S., Conway. A word of praise is due to the judges of each section, and especially so in the heavy horse section, for the excellent and expeditious man- ner in which they got through their work. The ring stewards were:—Heavy horses: Messrs. David Jones, R. Williams, Hugh Jones, John Evan Jones, David Pritchard, Elias Davies, Hugh Jones, and Hugh Davies. Light horses: Messrs. James A. Pollit, E. Loyd Jones, Richard Jones, Rowland Williams, W. J. Roberts, James Porter, Joseph Taylor, and D. Cunningham. Punctually at xx a.m. the first classes were in the ring, and were being judged. The total number of entries was 249, being 15 less than last year, and this is accounted for by the fact that the heavy horse section entries had decreased, but those of, the light horse section had considerably increased. There were fewer classes in this latter section, but the Committee very wisely added to the prize money, thus mak- ing the classes more attractive. The quality of the exhibits was exceptional, and very rarely could better be seen anywhere in North Wales. In the heavy horse section there was very keen competition, premier honours for an agri- cultural colt or filly going to Duchess," a fine chestnut filly, the proporety of Mr. T. H. Jones, St. Asaph. Mr. Thomas Jones, an Anglesey ex- hibitor, was again the winner in the agricul- tural gelding or filly class with Gelliniog Queen," and "Rhos Duchess," a two-year-old black filly from Ruthin, ran her very close. Mr. R. E. Birch was also a successful exhibitor with heavy horses. The competition in Class V. for'the best agricultural in-foal mare or foal at foot was the keenest of the day. Indeed, it was so keen that the two judges held different views about the winner of the first prize, with the re- sult that the Committee called in a referee in the person of Mr. Thomas Dutton, Chester, who amidst cheering declared Dulas Forest Daisy," a beautiful dark brown mare, the property of Mr. Robert Parry, Abergele, as the winner. The animal that ran so close was Susie II. a four-year-old chestnut belonging to Mrs. Mary Jones, Bodafon Hall Farm. The winner is a mare full of quality. She is a descendant of the famous Lockinge Forest King," and is in-foal to Tatton Dray King, a horse which was sold last year at Earl Egerton's sale for 3,700 guineas. This mare also won the Shire Horse Society's silver medal. Other winners in the heavy classes were Messrs. John and J. Foulkes, Llandudno Junction. The shire stallion class brought seven entries, each of them being well known horses. Premier honours were taken with Umberslade Combination," belongirug to Mr. George Ingman, Mold, Hendre Prince William being a close second. The light horse classes er-lipsed all previous re- cords both in' regard to quantity and quality. The chief winners were Messrs. John Jones & Sons, Dinarth Hall; Miss Margaret E. Knott, Naruty- coed. Competition was very keen in the class for pony mare or gelding, not exceeding 1376 hands, to be shown under saddle, the winner be- ing Mr. Joseph Bond, Whitby, Chester. The other classes also provided an. excellent competi- tion, the chief winners being Mr. Ellis Gillam, Poulton, Wrexham Mr. Charles Foster, Birken- head Mr. A. H. Read, Neston, Cheshire; Mrs. C. E. Way, Bradpole., Chester; the Hon. Mrs. Ward, Old Colwyn; and Mr. Thomas Catlow, Higher Trap Stud, Padiiham, Lanes., who ex- hibited an international winner in "Higher Trap Mona." In the stallion class the Hon. Mrs. Ward's Dissenter was again the winner, and Messrs. John Jones and Sons' Little Fire was the premier animal in the stallion class under 14-2 hands, suitable for saddle or har- ness.

Ratepayers' Meeting at Deganwy. THE QUESTION OF A PUBLIC HALL. Dega,n,ry does not intend to be behind in the matter of progress. Its d,-v-elopiient of late lias been remarkable, and yet there is- no proper place wherein to hold miblic meetings. Owing to this need, the following resolution was passed at a meeting of the Conway Town Council on March That inasmuch as there is no hall available for public meetings in Conw-ay-in- Rhos,, the layo-r be requested? to coavene a meeting of ratepayers within that portion otf the borough in order to ascertain their views as to the desirability or otherwise of remedying this condition." In accordance with this resolution, His Worship the Mayor (Mr. John Williams, J.P.) convened a meeting of the Deganwy rate- paye-rs. for Wednesday evening in the Deganwy Free library to consider the matter referred to in the above resolution. The Mayor presided, and there were also pre- sent Councillor Hugh 'Owen (Deputy-Mawr), Councillors A. J. Old.man, J. E. Conway-Jones, Edward Jones, County Councillor Henry Jones, Messrs. Robert Johntson (Llandudno Junction), Richard Owen (Llys Ifor), William Williams, C. F. Pugh, Robert Davies, J. H. Brook, R. Pritcliard, T. Ellis Hughes, D. E. Davies, A. Mclntyre, J. W. Lancaster, W. Hamer, E. O. Hughes, John Evans, W. Davies, David Griffiths and John Williams; togertiher with the Town Clerk (Mr. T. E. Parry) and his assistant (Mr. Robert Jones). Mr. Oldman explained his reasons for moving the above-mentioned resolution at the Town Council meeting, authorising the Mayor to call that meeting. The need of a public hall was great. Mr. iLamer supported Mr. Oldman in his views, and short expressions of opinion in favour of a hall were made by Councillor J. E. Conway Jones, Mr. D. E. Davies, Counjty Councillor Henry Jones, and Mr. J. H. Brook, Secretary of the Deganwy Imprevenienit Association. Mr. Oldman then moved That .this meeting of ratepayers of Conway-ifn-Rhos do respectfully urge the Conway Corporation to take such steps as may be necessary to provide a public hall for thjo portion of the borough at as early a date as possible." County Councillor Henry Jones seconded. Upon a vote being taken, 17 voted) (praeticallv the whole of the Deganwy ratepayers present) for a public hall, and none against. During the meeting the question was asked, what was th= cost of the. Conway Town Hall, and -H-h- v it,s it in the £ The Mayor asked if it was meant the cost of erection. Mr. W. Davies The repayment of loan and interest. What do they represent? Mr. Oldman said the cost of erection, accord- ing to information he had, was £ 3,400, and there wias £ 2,000 still due on it. The amount paid1 per annum on tpast loans and interest was £80, and. the burden on the ratepayers was, roughly speaking, about 2d. in the f. But of course they would not need such an expen-sive building for Deganwy by any means. Mr. Oldman, in proposing a vote of thanks to the Mayor, said it was the first time since he had resided for twenty years in the district that a Mayor had presided over a public meeting at Deganwy to take the voice of the people before doing anything. It was a great credit to His Worship to come there, and he thanked him for his presesnoe. Mr. W. Hamer seconded, and the vote was carried unanimously.

Llandudno Council and the Great Orme Tramway. A special meeting of the Llandudno Urbail District Council was called for Wednesday night for the purpose- of passing the statutory resolu- tioru to purchase the undertaking of the Great Orme Tramway Company. The notices for the meeting were issued a month ago, in accordance with the provisions of the Tramways Act, 1S70, and sific-e the sum- moning of the meeting the shareholders of the Tramway Company passed a resolution calling upon the directors not to offer the trarnway to the Council on the terms specified? namely for £ 7,500. It was generally felt after that (lec-isicui that the negotiations would not b,, proceeded with further, and. whether for that or other reasons, the attendance of the Councillors at Wednesday night's meeting was not sufficient to enable the resolutioil, to be carried in the legal manner. There were only seven out of the eighteen members in attendance- In the absence of the Chairman (Mr. M"Master), Mr. W. H. Jones presided, and the Clerk (Mr. CoTtolly) stated that to be effective the resolution inUst be passed when, there were two-thirds of the mem- bers of the Council present and voting- That meant a minimum of twelve. Mr. S. Chantrev I am afraid the members have forgotten about the meeting, having had such a long notice. The Chairman asked if there had beel), any communication from the Tram-way Company- The Clerk said he wrote to tell the Company that the meeting otf the Council would be held, and asking whether the Company had anything to communicate in order that he might Put it before the Council. In reply be had a letter in the following tenns from Mr. H. Sutliffe, the secretary:—" I am instructed to sta4 tb at the directors are prepared to submit any rtsolu- tion your Council may pass at their me^tifg to- day to purchase the Great Orme Tramway to a meeting of the. shareholders called according to the statute bearing on the matter." Some comment being made as to the ^b^ntee Councillors, and the Clerk having expb,in>ad that although notices had not. been sent Illt to remind members, he had spoken to nic-,t of them, about the meeting, Mr. Bone reirvrked that he did not stop away from a meetiu be- cause the occasion was an awkward one. After waiting for a quarter of an boui and Mr. \V. Thomas. having gone out to call ufgmne of the Councillors on the telephone, it ws de- cided to adjourn for a short time to se if a sufficient number of the members. to gie the meeting a legal status would arrive later One member, however, (Jnlv came in, and th< meet- ing was therefore abandoned.
A Hint to Housewive. Do you know that you would be muc better off in pocket, and that the health and w-being, not alone of vourself, but of evervoll about your household, would be greatly imfoved if you made a practice of constantly using urrants in some form in your cookery ? This [elicious little dried fruit which your grocer sellsQr your baker puts into bread, cakes, and other.atables, is one of the most powerful helps to heith, and one of the most efficient aids that natrc could place at your disposal in warding q illness. Some of the more skilful and disfoguished medical men of the day (including the lhvsician to our own beloved Sovereign, King Edà.rd VII.) tell us, in effect, that Currants, either iten raw, or cooked in any of the thousand-anebne ways in which they may be prepared, are aibngst the most wholesome articles of diet. 'here are scores of different ways of preparing Currants for table, many of which are shown i a handy little Cookery Book, entitled "Hor Recipes for Cooking Currants."

Chester Historical Pageant. EPISODE V. The fifth episode is the visit to Cheateir of the first Royal Earl of the city, Prince Edward, aJfiterwards Edward I., who is accompanied by his bride, Princess Eleanor, A.D. 1256. Chester is proud of the long line of princes who have held the earldom, and rightly so, for the title has been carried by many Kings of England. King Edward VII. was Earl of.Chester for about sixty years, and the present Earl is the Prince of Wales, patron of the Pageant, who it is hoped will be induced to visit Chester next July. The concourse, which we see assembling to greet the Prince and Princess, is composed of high Church and civic dignitaries, and mingling in the throng are rude Welsh tribesmen and representatives of the general populace of Chester. A group of Welsh knights arrives, headed by Prince Llewelyn., grandson of the great Llewelyn. The enmity of the Welsh to- wards the Normans is revealed at the outset, and the spectator is allowed to watch the. signs of the coming storm of Welsh rebellion, to which portents the ruling race mostly is blind. Prince Edward and Princess Eleanor arrive, I the one attended by a splendid retinue of English nobles, the Princess followed by a train of richly dressed ladies. The Prince, whose title of Earl of Chester had been bestowed only recently, was quite a youth at the time, but was so tall that few of his people reached his shoulders." The enthusiasm of the English rises to great heights, but the Welsh maintain an ominous silence, until Llywelyn, fearful lest the aloofness of his countrymen should be noticed, leads the cheers. Llywelyn crowns his duplicity by swear- ing fealty to the King of, England and to the Prince. Edward accepts his protestations of loyalty, calls him cousin, allows him the honour of riding beside the Princess, and invites the Welsh nobles to join in his train. Forward to the banquet," he concludes, and let the word be England and Wales, nay, England and vmiru, agai-nst the world." A NVeLIima-n re- marked See how these fat-witted English churls 11 are smiling. For the present, let them smile." Three months after this incident Llywelyn rebelled, and for many years kept'-up an in- cessant warfare. He gained three victories over the army of Edward I. (the Prince in the epis- ode), but was killed at Porth Orewyn, near Builth, A.D. 1282. On the whole, the fifth episode promises to be one off the most brilliant of the series.

Mr. Lloyd George has been, spending the Easter holidays pleasantly at Brighton, and has so far benefited from the change that he hopes to be able in due course to resume his full parliamentary duties. On. Saturday evening he was present at a minstrel performance in. the Royal York Hotel. The troupe made humorous allusions to the Budget and the House of Lords, and poked fun at the Chancellor of the Ex- chequer, who seemed to enjoy the jokes thoroughly.

There were eleven entries for prizes of £12, £ 5, Z3, and £1, including all the well-known jumpers, one of them, Star- light," being an international winner. When this competition was commenced, the crowd around the ropes and on the grand stand amounted to some thousands. Nine of the en- trants put in an appearance, with the result that the competition was exceedingly keen. The only horse throughout the contest to clear the six- teen-foot water jump was Pioneer," but he failed at the other obstacles. During the pro- gress of the competition an alarming accident occurred to a lady who rode the horse belong- ing to Mr. F. V. Grange, Nantwich. When tak- ing the water jump on Old China," the animal leapt too soon and alighted in. the hurdles, throwing its rider headlong. The officials raced to the lady's assistance, but before they reached her she was up and after her horse, which had raced along. Amidst tremendous cheering, she again mounted the horse and attempted the water jump, this time clearing the hurdle, but failing to clear the water. Before the judges could decide, the animals had to be taken round several times. The following was the order of the awards:—ist, "Starlight," owned by Whittrng- ham Bros., Wellington-street Stables, Burton-on- Trent; 2nd, "Blue Peter," owned by Dr. Alfred O. Davies, BrorcwyLfa, Machynlleth; 3rd, Pioneer," owned by G. Ledson, Manor House, Bramborough, Cheshire; 4th, Classical Dancer," owned by F. W. Millings, Ludham House Stables, Chester. There was consider- able disappointment amongst the spectators when they found that the plucky lady had not gained an award. On leaving the ground Sb6 was accorded hearty cheers. TROTTING RACE. Although there were several entries for this event, only three horses faced the starter, the others having to leave in order to get the train. Mr. J. T. Jones, Eagles Buildings, Conway, was the winner with Jerry," the second prize go- ing to Mr. W. M. Sever with Polly." THE GATE. The attendance on the show ground and on the grand stand constituted an easy record. The s.tandin.g record was in 1908, when a sum of ^130 was taken at the gate, but on Monday this was beaten by another £30. The catalogues were also sold out very early, in the day. The show was an unqualified success. The catering wasi in the hands of Messrs. Heath and Co., Market Drayton and Manches- teT, who provided an excellent luncheon on the ground.
