AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY.-At a Com- mittee of the Agricultural Show on Monday evening, it was decided to hold the annual dinner in the Marine Hotel, on Wednesday, the 11th January.—The first of a proposed series of smoking concerts was held in the Marine Hotel on Tuesday. Mr D. MacNicoll, Derwas, filled the office of chairman with his usual generosity and witty remarks. A very good concert was provided, in fact, very much above the ordinary, and it was sad to see such a small audience (all the more remarkable as admission was free), and the poor -support given to the hard-working secretary, Mr R. Martin Smith. It is very doubtful whether another will be provided. Although the audience was small it was most appreciative. The items included solos by Mr Mobley (Colwyn Bay), Mr Dd Pritchard (Glan Wern, Mochdre), Mr Ed Davies, Mr Hugh Lloyd, Mr E. Ed. Roberts (Old Colwyn), comic songs by Mr Callow (Old Colwyn), and Mr Nee (Colwyn Bay), duets by Messrs E. Ed. Roberts and Dd. Pritchard, and also by Messrs Hugh Lloyd and Ed. Davies. Mr Bird, Colwyn Bay, gave several of his reci- tations, which were very highly appreciated. Mr E. Ed. Roberts, Old Colwyn. was the accompanist, who was never in better form. A vote of thanks was given to the Chairman, accompanied by singing -1 For he's a jolly good fellow," and votes of thanks were accorded to Mr J. W. Lloyd and family, Marine Hotel, who very kindly gave refresh- ments to the artistes for giving their services, and to the Secretary. A YOUNG MAN'S THEFT.—Before Dr M.
