The question was open- ed by Mr. Albert Hughes, who dealt with the cramming existing in our schools, and the struggle for existence both in the scien- tific and commercial world. A lively dis- cussion followed, in which all the members took part. 1 VISIT OF MADAME ANDRE.—ihrougn- out last week the Church House was filled nightly to hear Mr. and Mrs. Victor Andre, the European Mahatmas, and their London Entertainment Company. The programme presented each evening was of the highest order, and the audience evinced their ap- preciation by frequent encores. The con- juring of Mr. Andre was exceedingly clever. The clairvoyancy demonstrated by Mrs. Andre was far and away beyond anything witnessed here before. We understand it is their intention to return here at an early date. If that is so, we are quite certain they will meet with equally large audiences as has been 'the case throughout this week. TABERNACLE LITERARY SOCIETY.

The presence of swallows is a further proof. TEMPERANCE.—A meeting of the Women's Temperance Society was held on Friday, the Rev. Wm. Thomas presiding.

DEATH OF MR. CECIL HUGH-JONES. —It is with deep regret that we record the death of Mr Arthur Cecil Hugh-Jones, sec- ond son of the late Archdeacon Hugh-Jones, Llanrwst, who died at Woodford, Essex, ost Saturday, in his 51st year. He leaves a widow and two daughters. The deceased was educated at Rossall School and the Royal Engineering College, Cooper's Hill, out of which he passed with some distinc- tion. He obtained a Government appoint- ment in the Public Works Department in India. This, however, he was obliged to relinquish after only a few years's service, the climate having thoroughly undermined his constitution and sown seeds of the disease of which he ultim- ately succumbed. The greatest sym- pathy is felt for his mother and the family in this their second bereavement within a few weeks of each other. The funeral, a private one, took place on Wed- nesday afternoon at St. Mary's Churchyard, Llanrwst. The chief mourners were Mrs. A. C. Hugh-Jones, Miss G. R. Hugh-Jones, Mr. and Mrs. R. M. Hugh-Jones, Mr. and Mrs. Llewelyn Hugh-Jones, Mr. and Mrs. Trevor Hugh-Jones, Mr. George Hugh-Jones, Miss Hugh-Jones, and Mr. and Mrs. H. J. W. Watling. The service was conducted by the Rector (Rev. John Morgan), assisted by the Rev. Jenkyn Jones (curate). There was a number of floral tributes. ZION SUNDAY SCHOOL.—On Tuesday evening a well attended meeting of teachers and others interested in Sunday School work was held at Zion Vestry Room, under the presidency of Mr. W. Williams, County School, the Sunday School superintendent. Some time ago a number of ladies and gentler-men had voluntarily offered their ser- vices to visit the adherents of Zion Chapel who were not members of the Sunday School. The reports delivered were of a very favourable character. It was said that during the last few months 40 new members (adults) had joined the Sunday School afresh—some of whom continue to attend very faithfully, but others came only tem- porarily. As the plan of visitation had proved so successful, it was unanimously decided to continue to work on the same lines during the next few months. An at. tendance committee was appointed, consist- ing?* the Rev. William Thomas, Mr. W. Williams, County School; Mr. W. H. Wil- liams, Station House; Mr. Samuel Roberts, Bodunig Cottage; Mrs. Williams, Preswyl- fa and Mrs. Lloyd Williams, Bodunig. The work carried on in the new sohool-room at Watling-street also came under considera- tion, and references were made to the good work done there under the supervision of Mr. Norman Rogers Jones.
