Bettws-y-Coed School Christmas Tree. Tuesday, December 20th, was the child- ren's evening in Bettws-y-Coed. It was the annual distribution of prizes in the Girls' and Infants' School, and as befitting the time of the year, the occasion was celebrated in true Christmas style by a gaily decorated tree, with all the attendant re- joicings it brings with it. The children were very impatient for the hour to arrive, so anxious were they to obtain a glimpse of the enchanted fairyland. The school-room was profusely ornamented with holly and evergreens, Chinese lanterns and Japanese screens, ribbons and fancy papers galore. Punctually at the hour appointed, the children arrived, and all eyes were eagerly fastened on the gigantic tree placed in the centre of the room. Many exclamations of delight were uttered as the children filed in. each one wondering which particular article on the tree would be allotted to her. For the first hour, the children grouped them- selves around the tree and enjoyed a little concert of their own, Jennie Beatrice Wil- liams being chosen as president. At six o'clock, the guests of the evening arrived, a)nd this "was the hour for lighting tthe vindles and lanterns, which gave such a fairy-land effect. After this came the "pul- ling of the crackers," when loud explosions were heard accompanied by much laughter. The contents of the crackers came as a sur- prise to the children, the caps, bonnets, and whistles being much appreciated. The ai tendance prizes were then distributed by the Vicar. The following is the list of prize- winners :-First class (A.): Mabel Brown. Elizabeth Jones, Lloyd Ellis. Second class (A.) Katie Jones, Phyllis Jones, Evelyn Thomas, Willie Ellis, John H. Egerton, William Egerton, Weston Jones, George Parry, Griffith Parry, Harry Williams. First class (B) Deborah Owen, Sarah S. Hughes, Mary O. Roberts. Second class (li.) Grace Pugh. Mary Powell. The tree was next unburdened of its treasures, each article being numbeied, and last, but not the least, each child had a dip in the huge "snowball" Tor a bag of sweets and an orange Thus ended a most enjoyable evening. Vote of thanks were proposed by the Vicar to the head mistress (Miss F. A. !• vans) for her kindness in preparing such a store of good things, and to the teachers, Miss Crook and Miss Williams, for their work in assisting her, also to Miss Tones, Tan Lan, and Miss Williams, Bryn Ront, for their able assistance in dressing" the tree Return thanks were given 10 the Vicar and the ladies present for the kind way in which thev had helped the children to spend a happy evening.
