COAST SENIOR CUP. COLWYN BAY v. LLANDUDNO AMATE-URS. A GOAL-LESS DRAW. (BY "VIGILANT.") Great interest was manifested in the meet- ing of these rivals on Saturday at Colwyn. The weather was beautifully fine and appro- priate for a good game—and a good game was witnessed. It is remarkable the follow- ing Llandudno Amateurs has this season, owing no doubt to the fact that they have not yet been beaten. And Colwyn Bay made a mighty effort to do this on Saturday but failed. Had the Gulls done this they would have undoubtedly deserved the Certificate of Merit. A BUSY SCENE. The Amateurs journeyed from Llandudno to the Marine Hotel per motor char-a-banc, and were prompt on the ground at the adver- tised time, 2.45. The scene at the Marine Hotel before the match was reminiscent of an English Cup-tie. Motors, landaus, cycles, and other modes of conveyance were present, and the picture was an animated one. Quite half, if not more, of the spectators followed Llandudno. The Colwyn Bay Club is to be congratulated upon having pay boxes, and their new stand. The latter needs clothing a bit, and of course the necessary cover, which, I presume, will be done in time. AN APPRECIATIVE CROWD. If any evidence were necessary to prove the improved tone of the game these last two years it was found in the highly respectable people who patronise the game. There were clergy, and well-known persons present, with a fair sprinkling of ladies, And while this welcome feature is the case so long will the high tone of the game be maintained. What is wanted more is the presence of some of our kill-joys who denounce the game, which they have never seen. The gate was a gratifying one—between £ 13 and ^i4 being taken. THE GAME. The teams were given a good cheer as they ran upon the field, and excitement was great when Llandudno won the toss and played towards Colwyn, down the slight slope. Mr Harrison, of Crewe, was the referee. The opening was dashing and full of spirit. The Gulls were forcing the pace, and were evidently imbued with the seriousness of their task. Culminating a series of sharp and determined movements Stanley Hughes let fly a terrific shot high over the bar. Cheers greeted the attempt. From the goal kick the movements on both sides were effervescent and full of dash. Colwyn Bay to my fancy I were smarter on the ball at times, and there was a go-ahead and business-like method about their movements. However, Bob Davies, after the 'Chers had got down, shot in but nothing tangible was the result. Some rattling give and take play was seen. Now one side, now the other gaining the upper hand. The game was full of rousing incidents, Colwyn Bay being the more spruce of the two sides. Some excellent passing took place on both sides. Strange to say in the first half Stallard never once touched the ball, whilst Hallwood had some work to do. I I A GOAL-LESS GAME. The second half saw Cleeve in a trice shoot a gi-oundei- just wide of the post. Then a visit was paid Stallard who had to be very alert to avert the downfall of his charge. For a while Llandudno were overwhelmed by the forceful play of the Gulls, and I was of opinion that they would score. The Gulls style of play was not so cool as that of Llandudno, and it was the superb defence of the Cormorants which prevailed. Several corners fell to the Gulls during the pressure they put on, but find the net the Gulls could not. Stallard made one miraculous save just under the bar. At the other end it was a miracle how Llandudno did not put the ball in the net, when there was a flurry. A free kick to the Cormorants saw John Henry drive at a fearful pace a low shot. Hallwood stooped to field, but the force of the ball crashed against his stomach, and he was hoys de combat for a while. And so one of the most enjoyable games ended in a draw. Colwyn Bay, o Llandudno, o.
CARNARVON UNITED v. LLANBERIS. The game attracted a fair crowd to the Oval, Carnarvon, on Saturday, and a gate of nearly ci-, was realised. Promptly to time, Mr. Slater, of Llandudno, piped the players together, and they lined out in the following order:- Carnarvon: G. H. Jones; R. Morton Williams and Evan Hughes; E. R. Jones, M. R. Herbert and W. Hughes John Jones, W. Land, Walter Jones, Tom Roberts and R. H. Roberts. Llanberis: J. Daniels; Lord and R. Lloyd Hughes; D. Roberts, W. Pritchard and O. Morris; W. R. Thomas, E. Lloyd Hughes, Hannaby, W. Williams and H. Lloyd. Carnarvon won the toss and decided to play for the country goal. Even at an early stage the game was most stubbornly con- tested, and both goalkeepers were called upon in turn to clear their lines. Not to be denied, the Carnarvon forwards were again hovering in the Llanberis goalmouth, and from a scrimmage in front of goal Walter shot hard and straight into the far corner of the net. Stimulated by this suc- cess, the locals were again busy in front of Daniels, and corner after corner were con- ceded by the Llanberis defence, which, however, were cleared. Daniels, in clear- ing his lines, had the misfortune to carry the ball over the alloted limit of two yards. The place kick was entrusted to Walter, anld this player shot hard for the goal. The ball would certainly have entered the net untouched, had it not accidentally touched one of the Llanberis defence while in transit, and the referee instantly allowed the point. At this period the locals were all over the Llanberis defence, and the downfall of the Berries' goal was almost again accomplished by Land, but offside against Tom Roberts relieved the situation. John Jones, on the left, forced a corner for Carnarvon, which was neatly placed, and Tom Roberts nicely converted from a diffi- cult position. The locals now slackened off somewhat, and the Llanberis attack brought the ball to the local goalmouth, where Herbert con- ceded a corner. This, however, was easily cleared, and shortly afttrwards half time sounded with the score reading: — Carnarvon, 3; Llanberis, o. On resuming it was observed that the Carnarvon left full did riot, owing to in- juries, turn out, and although he came on later, he was not up (to his usual form. Carnarvon were thus compelled to play the one-hack game, and this greatly militated against the Llanberis attack, as they were repeatedly pulled up for offside. However, not to be denied, Lloyd Hughes gently tapped the ball forward, and Hannaby, rushing on, sprinted off Carnarvon and scored a fine goal. Straightaway from the kick off Carnarvon went down on the right, where R. H. Ro- berts forced a corner. This was splendidly plaiced, and Tom Roberts coolly headed the ball past Daniels. The game now liven. up considerably, and the Llanberis for- wards were seen to great advantage. Thomas and Hughes, on the left, worked the ball well up into the Carnarvon terri- tory, and Hannaby again scored for the Berries amidst a scene of great enthusiasm by the Berries' supnortesrs, who had ac- companied their pets in large numbers. The Llanberis attack was now playing ducks and drakes with the Carnarvon defence, and it was not long before they had the sphere in the netted space for the third time. Excite- ment was now intense, as Llanberis were making desperate efforts to equalise, while on the other hand Carnarvon endeavoured to augment their score. Give and take play followed on each side, but Walter Jones, hanging op to the ball in midfield, made one of his characteristic rushes for the Ber. ries' goalmouth. The ball was brought well into the Llanberis territory, where he neatly tapped the ball to R. H. Roberts, and this player promptly crashed the ball past Daniels. This goal settled the issue, and soon afterwards time was called, the final score reading: Carnarvon, 5; Llanberis, 3. NOTES. It was an ideal day for football. There was a proper cup-tie crowd present, while the players obliged by playing a real cup- tie game. The first portion of the game saw the Berries a completely outplayed lot, and the score against them at half time quite represents the run of the play. The second half, however, saw them in quite a different mood, and they were as good as, if not better, than the home lot. Fortunately for the homesters, they had settled the result of the game in the first moiety, and had Llanberis played as well in the first half as they did in the second, the result might have been different. For the locals, Jones in goal was not so severely tested as Daniels, but we observe that he made no efforts to stop the shots which beat him. The backs were inclined to be shaky, but in the case of R. Morton Williams, this defect is excusable, as he was hurt early on in the first half. The halves were in great form, especially in the first half, but they fell off in the second.

BANGOR v. HOLYHEAD SWIFTS, THE SEALARKS DEFEATED! (BY" NERQUIS.") These old rivals met on Saturday, at Bangor. The occasion was the struggle for entry into the third round of the Coast Senior Cup. Both teams have been posses- sors of the coveted trophy. Flint has it now until the end of the season. Rousing were the matches in bygone days between the Homers and the Sealarks. What ex- citement What enthusiasm There was only a shadow of that to be found on Satur- day on the Bangor ground. The gate was only moderate, and it was evident the interest in the second round is not in Bangor what it used to be. The game was not a great one by any means, and the Sealarks were thoroughly beaten at the end of ninety minutes. Three goals were put into the Holyhead net and none into Bangor's. And so Holyhead Juniors must try and take the Junior Cup home. I fancy the young Sealarks are the strongest team in the Junior League.
BANGOR 'VARSITY v, LLANDUDNO JUNCTION. THE ROOKS DEFEATED! (BY WEARY WILLIE.") The Rooks visited Bangor on Saturday, boys, and lost. Lor, I was vexed It quite got my monkey up to hear the Bangor chap next to me shout out, Wait till the tide comes in!" Methinks it would have been better to sing from a Junction stand- point, "Wait till the clouds roll by. The Junction are protesting, I am told. No ropes round the field. Not even enough to swing a cat with. I'm afraid the match will have to be played "ower agin." I am too weary to write about the game, but I will ask you a conundrum. Why is it that if the Bangor 'Varsity Club is so hard up for cash they cannot be enticed from Bangor to accept a guarantee? Perhaps that bloke what writes for yer paper called "Vigilant" can answer.
COAST JUNIOR LEAGUE. PENMAENMAWRv. GLASINFRYN SWIFTS. PENNYMORES STILL INVINCIBLE. ,These teams met at Penmaenmawr on Saturday in fine weather. Referee Wil. liams, Deganwy, marshalled the teams as follows Penmaenmawr: Bob Lloyd; W. E. Hughes and H. Jones; Bob Brown, J. Jones, and Tom Jones; J. W. Lunt, Archie Jones, R. Morris, C. Sloane, and Caleb Williams. Glasinfryn Swifts: J. P. Jones; W. D. Thomas and G. Whitehead; C. Pierce, E. E. Davies and R. Thomas; H. Edwards, D. P. Hughes, T. F. Pierce, R. S. Williams and W. Thomas. A good crowd of spectators witnessed the game. The visitors at the whistle became aggressive, but they soon lost the ball, for Archie scored No. i for the homesters be- fore anyone knew where 4e was. The visitors then attacked, and Bob, the home goalie, was called upon to save, which he did smartly. In a few seconds there was a scramble just by the visitors' goal, out of which John Willie rattled No. 2. The Swifts were smart on the ball, but try as they would they were foiled. Then H. Jones fouled within the dreaded area, and the visitors were awarded a penalty, which Edwards neatly neitted. The homesters (otherwise known as Hen Adar and "Custards") began pressing then, and Mor- ris, as usual, sent a rattler in-No. 3. Bob Brown took a free kick for the homesters, and to everyone's surprise it landed in the neli-No. 4. The homesters then slackened down, but the Swifts were not to be beaten. Pierce soon reduced the lead, and ere long F. Pierce followed suit. J. W. Lunt scored No. 5. Half time Penmaenmawr, 5; Swifts, 3. Resuming, the visitors had the advantage of the slope, and soon showed that there was to be a hard fight. Hugh Edwards scored No, 4 for them, and ere long Pierce sent No. 5 in. The homesters then pressed but though they worked well they could not sqore, the Swifts having contracted the Bangor disease of kick out. During the last few minutes there was great excitement, but neither team increased their score. The .game ended in a draw: Penmaenmawr, 5; Glasinfryn, 5.
COLWYN BAY OAKS v. LITTLE ORME. On Saturday, in ideal weather. Half time: Oaks, 2; Orme, 2. Final: Oaks, 2; Orme, 2.
THE COMBINATION. DENBIGH TOWN v. CHESTER. FAST AND EXCITING GAME. (By "VANGUARD.") I fear that after the manner in which I criticised the Denbigh team last Saturday it will not seem correct for me to compli- ment them too much on their performance on Saturday. It might be only another spurt, and next week they may slide back into the groove. At all events, they drew on Saturday with one of the best teams in the Combination. But as the Scotchman said I 'hae ma doots," and only hope that at last the tone of Denbigh football is going to be raised. There was a decided change in the team. The brothers Lawless did not put in an appearance. Sam Griffiths was again in goal, for the first time since the Whitchurch incident. Tommy Davies, an old member of the team, again took up his position. Fred Lloyd was at outside right. The weather was particularly well adapted for football, but only a moderate gate witnessed the game. The referee was Mr. Dobson, Crewe, and the teams were: Denbigh: Goal, Sam Griffiths; backs, Dickins and J. Parry Evans half backs, H. Cartwright, Edward Hughes, and Tommy Davies; forwards, Fred Lloyd, E. E. Davies, Dick Thomas, J. Tuckfield and Berwyn Davies (captain). Chester: Goal, Charlie Morgan; backs, Darett and Williams half backs, Carter, Graiger, and Ormisher; forwards, Cooney, Schofield, Homes, McCarty, and Riley. THE GAME. The Cestrians won the toss, and Dick Thomas was soon championing the home- sters' course. He sent in a nice pass to Berwyn, who raced away, and sent in a terribly swift shot without centreing. Never- theless, it was true and went home com- pletely out of Morgan's reach. The shout that greeted the performance was mingled with exclamations of surprise, so sudden had the goal been registered, the ball hav. ing only been in play three minutes. Soon afterwards—the outcome of persistent at- tacking by the home van—Ned Evan scored. What a change this state of affairs was, to be sure, and what a change to see the smiling faces of the home supporters. That smile, however, soon came off, and was displaced by looks of anxiety. Shot after shot—driven with remarkable degrees of force, were rained uoon Griffiths. The ex- citement was great; each shot seemed as if it was going home. Sam for a time dealt with them all, but as the firing party got nearer their shots got more accurate, and the Denbigh goal was penetrated after splendid play by both clubs. The visitors seemed keen on having the equaliser before half time. Ormisher (the ex-Everton player) fed his wing splendidly, but the interval arrived with Denbigh the leaders for the first time this season. Half time: Denbigh, 2; Chester, 1. On resuming, the visitors proved the ag- gressors in the opening skirmishes. Fred Lloyd sent in a splendid pass to Ned Evan, who sprinted smartly ahead, and outwitted his opponent. Fred Tuckfield dashed in to meet the centre. The winger judged his shot with such accuracy that Morgan had no chance, the ball going in well under the bar, thus registering Denbigh's third goal. Cooney, who had been persevering all the afternoon, suddenly forced an open- ing, and drove in an extraordinarily power- ful shot, which completely beat Sam. With only eight minutes to go, the Thrushes were hanging on to the lead with a narrow mar- gin. The visitors put renewed energy into their play. Sam was again showered with shots. Riley put the issue beyond doubt, and netted the equaliser. Final: Denbigh, 3 Chester, 3. I
Football Chips. (By" VIGILANT.") That I have pleasure in awarding a Cer- tificate of Merit to PwiIheli-the last sea- son's finalists in the Coast Senior Cup. That the merit lies in the fact that the Penguins managed to beat Barmouth at the latter town by 3-2 in the second round for the same cup, of which Flint are the holders.
The North TVales Weekly News. erfificafc of Itfertf. I hereby declare that the best performance of the week was accomplished by Pwll- h, li, who defeated Barmouth on the lattey's ground in a Coast Amateurs Senior Cup-tie by 3-2, and award them my Certificate of Merit. (Signed) VIGILANT. Nov. 2^th, 1910.
That developments in the Coast Senior I Cup tourney are proving interesting. That one wonders whether it will be eventually wrested from the chemical lads of Flint this season. That every nerve will be strained by stronger teams than last season to do so. That poor Holyhead were given the quietus in their further struggles. How the glory of Holyhead has vanished, to be sure! That the Bangor Homers did the trick at Bangor. That the Homers can now crow of being the superiors of the Sealarks both at home and away. Such is the fluctuating luck of football, and its inconsistency is greater even. That the Canaries of Carnarvon managed to oust the Swallows of Llanberis at the Oval by the peculiar score of 5-3, the exact score by which the Llandudno Junction Rooks vanquished the Canaries in a League match at the Oval. That the men of Modern Athens—the Bangor 'Varsity eleven-beat the Junction Rooks at Ffriddoedd by 2-1. That I understand the Rooks have pro- tested, the merits of which will be the sub- ject of a discussion at a meeting of the Football Association. That to-morrow (Friday) evening Mr. Davies, who is a native of Conway, will give his bioscope entertainment in the Con- way Town Hall in aid of the funds of the Llandudno Junction team. Bravo! Turn up, boys, in strong numbers at the Town Hall, and help the cause of good sport. That the tie at Colwyn between Colwyn Bay and Llandudno Amateurs was unde- cided. hat not even a goal was scored. That it would have been worth something to be remembered had a goal been scored by either side to hear the vociferous cheer- ing there would have been. That the large and excited crowd hungered for this joy. That one Llandudno wag said the disap- pointment would be made up for at the re- play at Llandudno. That I was disappointed with the display Llandudno gave. That the ground, with all due respect to the Colwyn Bay management, is not an ideal one by a long way for cup-ties, especially for teams who are used to maximum pitches, such as Llandudno. That the narrow width greatly handicapp- ed the Cormorants. That the Colwyn end goal-line is narrower than the other. That the ground wants shaving and roll- ing afterwards very badly. That I am sure some of these things can be done by the management at once. That the Committee are moving in a business-like way in other matters. That I congratulate them on the new stand and pay boxes. That the crowd was a very representative one. That the Rev. R. D. Hughes was a spec- tator, and many people I was pleased to see there. That .Mr. Whitley, the Secretary, is a quiet and effectual worker. That unlike many firebrands, he is gifted with good common sense, and is always pleasing to chat with. That his brother of the more aldermanic turn looked the right man in the right place. Imposing and authoritative, he commands obedience, and some Llandudno ignoramus who would obstruct the view of stand people by standing in front was moved by Friend Whitley. That I wish the villain Jack Brown had shot this "bloke" with that cannon-ball shot which I received in the side of the face. That I did not want to "wait and see" what had happened. My aching head told me that. That Jack Brown owes me a new hat. That he was unwittingly the cause of much hilarity on the stand and round the course. That there were many regrets for poor Vigilant's misfortune. P'r'aps That it is marvellous to think what jealousy there is brewing at Llandudno's unbeaten record. That there are many waiting for the Cor- morant's defeat, who have the words I told vou so," long waiting on their lips. That of course Llandudno are my pets. Right guess, boys. That I want to see them do even better. That they are a team of which the Coast ought to be proud, let alone Llandudno. That certain fanatics were seen at Colwyn Bay, who could see nothing in the smart- ness of physique of Llandudno or their play, which I admit was anything but what Llandudno can do. The replay will, I think, give us this onportunity. | That Hallwood I was pleased to see again in goal. He was excellent. That D. Roberts took my fancy as the best back. That he was as good as any back on the field, his tall figure and effective work be- ing much in evidence. That O. E. Williams was also as smart as in by-gone days. At the same time, I call him a lucky player. That Ned Griffiths played a strong game. That Tom McCann was a host in h:m- self. That his play was a fine feature of the game. That Tommy is certainly one of our very finest and most consistent players in the N.W.C. League.

Denbigh Dribbles. (By Dinbych.") I heartily congratulate the town team on Saturday's result. The game was fast and full of exciting incidents. Berwyn was again in good form. Tommy Davies has plenty of football in him yet. Sam seems to have mustered up his talent during his rest. What is this I hear of procuring a pro- I fessional custodian? Have the club still got too much money? If Sam was given more practice he would make a capital keeper. J. Parry Evans and Dickins were at home again at back. I hope Saturday's luck has come to stay. The visitors were a strong eleven. It was only by the skin of their tfeth that they gained the victory. It is one consolation that the team see f d more goals on Saturday that they hav.) at any match this season. Ned Evan still improves. He has now fully realised that selfishneis does not pay. Fred Lloyd and Tuckfield played a con- scientious game. Berwyn's goal was most decidedly the best of the game. What a lot of handshakes there were over Saturday's game The home supporters were sorely disap- pointed when they lost the hard-earned lead only a few minutes from time. Charlie Morgan was by no means a stranger to Denbighites. We saw him between the posts for Wrex- ham Reserves last season. It seems almost too good to be true that Denbigh's luck is changing. We cannot crow yet, but we can antici- pate.
Welsh Football Association. DRAW FOR SECOND ROUND SENIOR CUP. LLANDUDNO AMATEURS' LUCK The draw for the second round of the Welsh Cup took place at Wrexham on Wednesday last and was as follows :-Llandudno Amateurs v. Carnarvon Mold Town v. Flint Rhos Rangers or Johnstown A. v. Brymbo Whit- church v. Wellington St. George's; Northern Nomads v. Saltney Llanfyllin v. F.W.F. Newtown or Aberystwyth Llandrindod Wells v. Llanidloes Cardiff City v. Ton Pentre or Merthyr Town. Clubs exempt until the next round :—Wrexham (holders), Chirk, Druids, Chester, Baugor, Connah's Quay, Oswestry, and Treharris. Ties to be played on December joth kick- off 2-30. With regard to the results of the first round, a protest was lodged by Merthyr Town against Ton Pentre. who defeated them 2-0, on the grounds that the game was not played on a proper enclosure, that no policemen were empioved, that the gate could not possiblv be checked, and that a large number of people obtained admission without paying. The Welsh Council decided to refer the protest to the South Wales members and Mr. Penry Jones, Llandrindod. A further appeal was made by Johnstown Amateurs against Rhos Rangers, who won by 3-2, it being alleged that the successful team played an ineligible man. The protest was sustained, and the match awarded to Johnstown. The secretary (Mr. Robbins) reported that the Irish Associa- tion desired the date of their international match with Wales to be altered from April 30th to March 4th. In view of the fact that Scotland will visit the Principality on the following Monday (March 6th), the Council agreed that it would be impossible to agree to the proposed date, and, after considerable discussion, they referred the question to a small committee. Sergeant Perkins, the referee in a cup-tie between Mold and Green- field, on the former's ground, reported certain Mold players for tripping and bad lartguage to the referee. He also stated that several spectators used such threats towards him that he escaped from the ground by climbing a wall. The Council decided to severely censure the Mold club, and to warn them of the future conduct of their spectators, and directed that warning" posters be exhibited on the ground. The players complained of were suspended for various periods extending up to the end of January. It was also resolved to make inquiries into a letter which the referee had received from an official of the Mold Club, requesting him not to report the occurrence to

The Cottage Homes of Wales. BIRTH TLACES OF SOME WELSH CELEBRITIES. The Manchester Welsh National Sociefy were very pleasantly entertained on Fridjjy I by Mr. S. Maurice Jones, Carnarvon, who exhibited some beautiful coloured drawinøe of the homes of Welshmen who, as sculptcms. bards, musicians, &c., have endeared them- selves to all patriotic Welshmen and haye left a mark on the branches of art or liAes- ature with which they were associated. The first picture shown was that of the home of JOHN GIBSON, the sculptor, born in 1790 at Gyffin, near Conway. Even as a young boy Gibsoifs gifts as a modellor were remarkable, but it was at Liverpool, where he worked aa A cabinet maker and wood carver, that him skill as a sculptor was discovered, and it was from there that he was sent to Rome to study under Canova and Thorw aldseji, where he ultimately became a sculpUtJir worthy of his masters. The classical ptirfty of his art was dwelt upon, his exquisSe statues of Huskisson and the late Qnee* Victoria receiving particular attention. The second drawing depicted the PI as lea, Llanrwst, the home of William Salisbury, the translator of the first Welsh Testament, This picture showed the massive old chim- ney in which, tradition says, the translator hid during persecution. This chimngy, much to the lecturer's sorrow, has now fallen down, and if the old relics are to be saved from complete ruin it is imperative that some patriotic Welshmen should take the matter in hand immediately. The next picture shown was that of Tan y Celyn, Trefriw, the home of IEUAN GLAN GEIRIONYDD, author of some of the most pathetic Welsh hymns, and of the immortal lyric The Battle of Rhuddlan Marsh." Tan y Castell, Dolwyddelen, the subject of another picture, is famous for having been the home of thsee noted Welsh preachers, John Jones, Tal-y- sarn; David Jones, Treborth, and William Jones, Wisconsin. To see the picture of Penybryn, Lianat. mon, a homely old farmstead nestling snug- ly against the Berwyn Mountains, where Ceiriog, the Burns of Wales, was born, was to understand to some little extent the cause of this noted poet's intense love for 1fi native Cambria. The lecturer recited sever- al of Ceiriog's most beautiful lyrics, and eulogised the melody of his versifications, and the beauty and simplicity of his ideas. The sixth picture was that of Moel y Gest, the home of Daydd y Garreg Wen, the noted harpist, who died when he was only 29 years of age. The old melody known as Dafydd y Garreg Wen," which the harpist compost for his own funeral, was played during the meeting by Miss Powell, Cheadle Hulme, and the lecturer referred to another occasion —the black chair Eisteddfod of Wrexham- when this old melody was sung by Madame Edith Wynne, accompanied on the harp py John Thomas, the King's harpist, with over, whelming effect. The lecturer claimed the authorship of Codiad yr Hedydd" tfoi Dafvdd y Garreg Wen. The audience took an intense interest in the .picture of PANT Y CELYN, the home of William Williams, the greatest hymnologist that Wales had ever product, and whose hymns will live as long as the language exists. The effect of the geograph- ical pecularities of Pant y Celyn was easily discerned in many of his hymns, and several examples were given The sketch of this homestead amongst the hills of the Car- marthenshire was taken only last summer, and the lecturer was pleased to find that the home of the sweet singer .of Wales v/a* still inhabited by has descendants. Other pictures lepresented Tanymarian, the home of Edward Stephens, the father ni the oratorio in Wales, and Cam Eos, a simple little cottage in South Carnarvon- shire, where Dic Aberdaron, the linguisrt. was born. The last sketch showed the Foel, Angle- sey, the home of the patriot Sir Hugh Owen. It was painted by the lecturer before the recent alterations took place. Reference was irade to Sir Hugh Owen's labour of lo-ie in promoting education in Wales, beginning with the British schools and culminating in the establishment of the Welsh University. The lecturer concluded his remarks with an appeal that the attention of the rising generation should be directed towards the life labours of these and other eminent bene- factors of Wales, and he trusted that by emulating them the future of Wales would I be even more glor:o;;s than its past. The chair was occupied by Mr. E. M. Powell, Cheadle Hulme.

Whooping Cough and Babies' CHEST TROUBLES, cured by VENO'S LIGHTNING COUGH CURE. Mrs. Rosie Williams, 16, Toronto-road, Leytonstone, writ,-s:-My two children suffered severely frcrn whooping cough, ana I gave them several kinds of mixtures with- out anv success. Then I tried VeDc'.s Lightning Cough Cure, and they obUuxuM relief at ona. and very soon they were ell- tirely cured. My baby also was very ill with bronchitis, but Veno s Lightning Cougli Cure has again proved invaluable- veno? Lightning Cough Cure is safe for the 3'oungest child.

The forwards were in a good humour. The right wing worked better than the left wing. Land would do well to part the ball out to the wing man instead of continually sending towards Walter, otherwise his play was quite up to the average. The losers were best represented by Han- naby, W. R. Thomas, and Lloyd Hughes, Prichard, centre half; whilst Daniels brought off some remarkable saves. H. Lloyd on the wing has a good turn of speed, and centres well. The Llanberis de- fence was inclined at times to be unsteady, while R. Lloyd Hughes has a habit of sky- ing the ball when a judicious pass would be more beneficial to his side. We under- stand that the Berries had been training for this match, and certainly their play in the second half suggested this, as they practically ran the home lot to a standstill. The Canaries would be well advised to fol- low the example of the Berries in view of the several cup-ties they have to play in the immediate future.
That good old Dick Rowlands was as cool and clever as usual. One of Colwyn B'tY's most sterling and fair players. More power to your feet, Dick! That Southern is a player on the sn-all side, with any amount of pluck nd dash. That Stanley Hughes was not able t'j get many of his dangerous shots in, o well was he shadowed. That Phillips makes a good pivot, and is a great worker. That G. P. Hughes and Norman Prichard made a good left wing. That the little left wing flier, Pritchard, was not allowed to get many of his danger- ous centres in. That the Gulls were more dashing than Llandudno. That both sides should have made more long pops at goal. That is cup-tie style. Try it on, boys, in the re-play. That Stallard did his work well. 'Nuff sed That J. H. J. and B. M. were splendid as backs. That Jack Brown I have seen better. Still, backs. That Jack Brown I have seen better. Still, ne was very good. That Tom Johnson was ditto. That Harold Pearson played vigorously, and for a wonder was penalised for fouling. J. E. Williams was not in that levil.may-care spirit. Ground, perhaps, Jack. That Dan Tim Coleman Davies was as good as ever. That Cleeve was not in his Bangor or Rhvl form. That Bob Davies or Jimmy wasn't, either. That Colwyn Bay spectators did not see the Amateurs at their best. That I am sorry for this. That the Gulls deserve every praise for the good fight shown. It was a very praise- worthy one. That the re-play on Saturday week will prove an attractive fixture, and another good gate. That the football scribes "Fidelis," "Robin Hood," Rambler," and u Pel Droed were present at the match. That Llandudno have three successive Sat- urdays at home in cup-ties. Next Saturday Rhyl are due in a Welsh Amateur Cup-tie. On December 3rd the replay with Colwyn Bay, and on the 10th December the Welsh Senior Cup-tie with Carnarvon. That the League fixture with Llandudno Junction on Saturday, December 3rd, is off. That it will be rather awkward to give the Junction a date in the near future. That I very much blame the Junction Committee for not accepting a date earlier on, when there were vacant Saturdays for both teams. That Llandudno desired it, but the Junc- tion didn't. So there you are. Possibly the loss of a good gate. Still, every new management must pay for experience. That Llandudno Junction Reserves de- serve credit for winning the re-plaved Junior Cup-tie at Blaenau Festiniog on Saturday. That the Holyhead Young Sealarks ac- counted in an unmistakable fashion for LI an Llechid Swifts in their re-play at Holvhead in the same cup tournament. That Penmaenmawr are still undefeated. That a draw of 5 goals each was the re- sult of the League match at Penmaenmawr on Saturday. That poor Menai Bridge got another flop on Saturday in the Second League. Llan. fairfechan put it across them this time. That the Welsh Association has been drastic with Rhyl and Flint anent some in. fringements which we, as usual, down this part of the Coast, have only sparse infor- mation. That what we have we are indebted to the busy Bee of the Liverpool Foot- ball Echo," and thank him for it. See re- port in another column. -e.-r- 8
tlae Association. Buckley Ergineers were fined 10s. for poaching in reference to an Esclusham player Mr. Beckett, of Chester, who refereed in a match between Connah's Quay Reserve and Greenfield, reported that a player in the Quay team used threats and foul language to him, and refused to give him his name. The Reserves' secretary was also alleged to have refused information. The piaver, whose name was still withheld, was suspended for a month, and the Reserves' secretary was suspended until the end of the year from taking any part in football or football management. A Rhyl player was suspended for a month for striking a Chester player, and the Rhyl ground, on which the offence took place, was ordered to be closed for a fortnight because of unruly conduct by a number of spectators. The Flint F.C. ground was also closed for a fortnight for similar reasons.
