people, and still proves a great attraction whenever it is exhibited. The annual exhibd- tien of the Cambrian Academy of Art is also open at Plas Mawr, Conway, and is certainly well worthy .1 a visit, for it contains the work of most of the leading artistes who make their home in Wales. THE HAPPY *VALLEY MINSTRELS. By far the oldest of the outdoor entertain- snenits is the minstretl performance in the Happy Valley..Mir W. J. Churchill, who this year secured the lease of the; minstrel plot, has been very unfortunate as regards the weather. Last seiajson the afternoon performances were only stopped by rain on tWOI afternoons, but this year in some, weeks the exception was to .get a fine day. A good Bank Holiday week, with the additional privilege of three evening penflarmances, will no doubt go a long way to- wards making good the- loss.. The entertain- ments are bright from. srtJrurt to finish, and, quite up to if not superior to the standard set up by former proprietors. Monday, Wednesday and Friday are the days on which evening per- formances are given. THE SCARLET MERRIONS. This talented company of vaudeville enter- tainers gives performances three times daily at Foulkeis' Cave, Tygwyn Road. The pilot has been comfortably arranged and provided with ample acootmtmodlatKm. It is sheltered from the winds, and forms an ideal spot on which to give an al fresco concert. One and all the artistes are excellent, and keep the fun m-lov- ing briskly for two hours. In short, they are 'Merry 'urns," and make others merry too1. < < THE HAPPY WHITE COONS. Given a fine day, not too hot or too windy, the Summit of the Orme is just the right place to wile away a few hours. The attractions of bracing air and magnificent panorama of views are added to by a company of comedians, who have dubbed themselves "The Happy White Coons," who perform on the plateau daily (weather permitting). In the evening the same < company appear in, the Egyptian Hall, Happy Valley Road. FOUR-IN-HAND COACH TOURS. Notwithstanding the number of counter at- tractions here is apparently no falling off in the number of visitors who take, advantage of the (numerous tours arranged by the Llandudno Coaching and Carriage Company, the largest and best equipped company of its kind in the. Principality. No better means could be de- vised for seeing the country than these hand- some coaches, drawn by forur smart stepping horses. The list of tours' is a lenghy one, full particulars of each being given in the hand- book issued by the. company, which may be obtained on application at the offices,, Queen's Hotel Gardens. » ENJOYABLE STEAMER TRIPS. As usual the Liverpool and North Wales iSteamship Company have made arrangements for an extremely varied number of excursions iby sea,, the list including trips to Menai Bridge, Beaumaris, Carnarvon, Blackpool, Douglas, Rhyl, Round Anglesey, etc., etc. In order to cope with the demand on their comfortable and cfomimiodiouis vessels, the company last week placed into commission a smaller steamer, the "St. Elian," which will be utilised for shore sea trips to Rhyl, Oolwyn Bay, etc. A full list of the regular and speeial sailing may be obtained from Mr Arthur Parton, the Com- pany's North Wales agent, at the Pier Gates. < MOTOR TOURS THROUGH NORTH WALES. Notwithstanding the, decision of the Council not to grant licenoelsi toi motor charabancs to ply for hire, visitors may, by journeying to Deganwy or Llandudno Junction yet, enjoy the motor tours through Wales, arranged by the Llandudno Motor and Garage Co., Ltd. The tours include Bettwsycoed, Snowdon Loop, Llanrwst, etc., and also a new one to Llianr dudno visitors, i.e., through Colwyn Bay, Aber- gele, Denbigh, Ruthin to Corwen and home via Cerrigydruidifcn, PentTevo-elias and Bettwsyeoed. This loop embraces the loveliest scenery in Waleis. Further particulars may be obtained at the Booking Office, next to the General Post Office. THE GREAT ORME TRAMWAY. In so far as lolcomotibn on a line of metals is concerned, the Great Orme, Train remains Llandudn'o's latest attractions. As such it is becoming increasingly popular with visitors,, many of whom miabe frequent journeys to the Summit. The tramis run every few minutes from the, Victoria Station, Church Walks. The views to be obtai-ned en route' are magnificent and varied, and golfers will find this a con- venient means of reaching the Great Orme Golf Links. PASTIMES. Golfing visitors are liberally catered by the two local clubs, for handicaps have been arranged by both the North Wales and Great Orme Goilf Clulbs. The links are easily accessible from all parts of the town, and are in excellent condition. On the. Cricket Field matches will be played by the Llandudno Club against Rhuddlan on Saturday and Manchester Y.M.C.A. Admission to. these matches is free, and afternoon tea may be, obtained on the ground. There is also a full-sized bowling ,grro&en on the slame ground and excellent tennis courts, particulars of the charges for which may be obtained from the groundsman.
