Not only was this a new and pleasing method of bringing the residents together in a social way, but it was also the means of raising funds in support of that admirable movement originated by Madame Riviere for the provision (f a King Edward Memorial ambulance for the rown and dis- trict.

Mrs. Reginald Crowe, better known as Miss Aimee Bebh. who has scored so manv artistic triumphs in the Victoria Pavilicn.

Mr. Sutton Jones, who is principal tenor of St. Asaph Cathedral and a pupil of Mr. Gurney Barnett, Colwyn Bay, made a most favourable impression by his very fine rendering of Pinsuti's The Last Watch." for which he was heartily encored. Mr. Sutton Jones would have appeared in I two items, but was not able to be present at the commencement of the programme because he was detained at a special service at the Cathedral, It is to be hoped that he may be frequently heard at Colwyn Bay. Miss Aimee Bebb received a most cordial welcome when she came on the stage to sing Denza's A.

Fleet came for- ward and presented the charming singer with a lovely bouquet, the gift of friends and admirers at Colwyn Bay. which he asked her to accept as a token of sincere wishes for a long and happy married life. The audience seconded Mr. Fleet's gallant speech with hearty applause, which wa" re- peated as Miss Bebb bowed her acknowledge. m'-n4s. Mr. Reginald J.
