National Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Children. ANNUAL MEETING OF COLWYN BAY BRANCH. The annual meeting of the Colwyn Bay branch of the N.S.P.C.C. was held on Tues- day afternoon, at the Hotel Metropole, Col- wyn Bay, under the chairmanship of the President of the Ladies' Committee, the Hon. Mrs. Laurence Brodrick. She was .'upported by Mrs. George Osborn, hon. treasurer, and Mrs. Francis Nunn, hon. secretary. There was a good attendance, amongst whom were Miss England from the Central Office, and Col. Heaton. Mrs. Brodrick said she was very glad to find the Colwyn Bay branch go on flourish- ing as it did. There was, however, much more to be done. Every year they had half starved and neglected children to see to, and save from the haunts where were to be seen warped types of humanity. The Society desired to bring some brightness and care into the lives of neglected and ill- treated children, as every child demanded from grown-up people. It was a credit to the Society that so much had been done, but there was more that could be done. The General Fund of the parent Society had a heavy deficit to wipe off, and they in Col- wyn Bay must help to do that. It was a long time distant, she was afraid, before cruelty to children would be a thing of the past, and it was a blot on the name of civil- isation. Therefore she appealed to those present to help in the good work. The children of the Empire to-day will carry on the Empire in the future, and it was in. cumbent on them to see that they were good citizens and maintain the Empire at a high standard. (Applause.) The mistrust that was prevalent to-day was an occasion for sadness, and she was afraid the patriotic spirit was dying out. They must foster a spirit of love and energy for country amongst the children, else the Empire would never be maintained. That Societv was do- ing much with sympathy, charity, and humanitarianism. (Applause.) Mrs. Nunn read the minutes of the last general meeting. Letters of apology were read from several persons for non-attendance. THE TREASURER'S STATEMENT.

Heaton seconded, the adoption of the report, which was carried.
