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. V enables-Williams and Mr Joseph Dicken, at a special court (yesterday), a cockney youth, named Charles Collins, was charged by Mrs Susanah Evans, of the Plough Hotel, Colwyn, with stealing a sovereign. Mrs Evans said he accused was employed at her hotel, and she gave him a sovereign to go to pay an account of Mr D. O. Williams. He did not turn up on Saturday, and she mentioned the matter to P.C. Holgate, On Tuesday morning, in the early hours, he was seen rambling about the streets at Llandudno, and he ultimately told the Llandudno police that he had stolen a sovereign and did not like to go back. Inspector Owen, telephoned to Colwyn Bay, when the accused was handed over to Supt. Beresfotd. The accused had 2s. left of the money. He pleaded guilty and was bound over for six months.

Last night (Wednesday), through the kindness of Mi- Harry Reynolds, the performance of living "C pictures was given in aid of the funds of the I Colwyn Bay Football Club. Several local artistes contributed towards the enjoyment of an excellent programme, and doubtless a good sum will be available for the funds of the Club. Mr Reynolds here gave an instance of his readiness to assist local objects and deserves much praise for his kindness. "THE ROMANCE AND BEAUTY OF PLANT LIFE." The popular illustrated lecture in aid of the Colwyn Bay and District Hospital was given upon the above subject last night (Wednesday), by Prof. W. Stirling, M.A., D.Sc., LL.D. (Professor of Physiology in the University of Manchester). In the Pier Pavilion, numerous coloured lantern slides especially prepared for the occasion was shown. There was a numerous attendance and the beautiful lecture was much enjoyed. ENGEDI LITERARY AND DEBATING SOCIETY.—On Thursday night the members of the above society were called upon to decide which is the better form of Government —Monarchy or Republic. Royal claims were championed by Mr L. M. Burrell, while Mr T. J. Dowell (jun.), upheld the rights and privileges of democracy. Several members took part in a lively discussion, and when thej question was put to vote the majority declared in favour of a Republic. The chair was occupied by Mr D. C. Lewis. THE WELSH MEMORIAL TO KING EDWARD.—A discussion upon the above memorial took place at the Monthly Meeting of the Urban District Council, on Tuesday, and it was decided that the Chairman called a public meeting at an early date to further the interest of the scheme. PUBLIC HALL.—Mr Harry Reynolds now provides his numerous patrons with a com- plete change of animated pictures every Thursday, in addition to the change every Monday. To-night's programme includes a magnificent thrilling English production en- titled" Lieut. Rose, R.N., and the Stolen Submarine," The Stage Letter," The Lime Locked Safe," Views of Turin, Calino Buys a House Dog," Foolshead as Policeman," Lazy Farmer Brown," The Dustman's Wedding," &c. DEATH OF TWO NOTED DOGS.— Our readers will be extremely shocked to hear of the deaths of the two well known St. Bernard dogs, Josephine and Lady," owned by Mr. C. R. Chaplin, photographer, which occured on Friday after two day illness. The noble animals which were such familiar figures in the town, succumbed to pneumonia and bronchitis. As is well-known they had won prizes at the principal shows in London and provinces, whilst locally they had done splendid collecting work in cause of charity. Together with Mr Chaplin they were always prominent on Lifeboat Saturdays and hospital collecting days in fact, they collected ^23 this summer for different charities. Mr Chaplin greatly misses his intelligent and affectionate canine friends, whose death mustimean to him in addition a great financial loss. NEXT SEASON'S CONCERTS.-In order to ascertain what degree of support would be given to the Pier Company to enable them to commence the musical season at Easter, and to provide high-class concerts, a pnblic mee'- ing was held on Thursday evening. Con- sidering that no fewer than 2,500 invitations had been issued, the attendance was most discouraging, and illustrated Colwyn Bay's lamentable lack of both musical taste and business shrewdness. It is extraordinary the indifference of the residents in general, and the tradespeople in particular, to a matter of such vital importance to the town. In order to attract the best class of visitors, Colwyn Bay must provide the best class of music, and the local public would be consulting their own interests by giving this matter their immediate consideration. The meeting was under the aus- pices of Mr Walter Whitehead, J.P., and other leading residents. The directors who were present, after hearing the views expressed, exhibited the greatest willingness to do all in their power, and if given proper support they will, no doubt, carry on the concerts with the same eclat as in the good old days of the late Mons. Jules Riviere. A LIBERAL STALWART.—Mr R. Thomson, J.P., has returned to Colwyn Bay looking exceedingly fit and happy after his strenuous services in the electoral battles in North Staffordshire. Although he really went to his former home with the sole object of devoting himself to organisation work, he was prevailed upon to take part in the public meetings as well, and he has been delivering a series of rousing addresses everywhere to enthusiastic audiences. Mr Thomson found the Staffordshire electors particularly keen on the land question. It is gratifying to Mr Thomson that the Liberal and Labour can- didates whom he assisted were returned with splendid majorities.
LLANDUDNO JUNCTION. AN UP-TO-DATE GROCERY ESTAB- LISHMENT,—Mr John A. Wood, of Nelson House, is to be congratulated upon the manner in which he keeps his well-stocked premises filled with all the choicest goods in groceries and provisions. A glance at the windows of his establish metit-al ways neat and attractive-shews how he has prepared all the good things essential for the festive SeHSon now close at hand Çhristmas fruit, cakes, and seasonable edibles are there in abundance, and, what is more important still, the prices are moderate tor the best class of goods.

LLANDDULAS. PARISH COUNCIL.-A meeting of the Parish Council was held 011 the 6th inst., when there was present, Rev Canon Roberts (Chairman)' Rev J. A. Enoch, Messrs Edwin Jones, Hugh Hughes' D. Williams, R B. Roberts, and the Clerk. Correspondence was read from the County Council's clerk re common land, &c. in the parish, and it was decided that the Clerk should supply the necessary particulars. Mill-street surface water was under consideration, as the ditch in certain places has filled, causing the water to overflow on to the road. It was decided to ask the property owners adjoining, to remove the obstruction, and repair the road opposite their own premises. As nothing definite was received from Mr Wynne, it was decided to defer the matter of the new sewer until next meeting. The tying and staking of some of trees in Dolvdd came under consideration, Mr D. Williams and Mr Hugh Hughes proposing and seconding that they be left as they were, because they thought they were worthless to spend money on, but the Chairman remarked that if it was only paying a little tribute of respect to the late Sir Alfred Jones for his generosity in giving and maintaining the trees till his death, the least thing the Parish Council could do was to spend a few shillings yearly to protect them. It was resolved to put a man for half-a-day to do the work. A petition was read from the shop-keepers praying for early closing and a half-day holiday each week. The council unanimously decided to support the applica- tion.
