lloots of steamers which kept coming and going to and from the Pier Head. The num- ber of visitors who came for the week-end from Liverpool may be estimated, when it is stated that in addition to "La Marguerite" it was necessary to utilise the "St. El vies" and "St. Tudno" to convey them back to the banks of the Mersey on Monday evening. Mr W. J. Churchill will have cause to re- member his first season as proprietor of the Happy Valley Minstrel troupe. On only two afternoons last year was it found impossible to give the usual afternoon performance on the minstrel plot, but on how many occasions this year rain has abruptly terminated the proceed- ings habitues of the Valley have long ago stopped counting. Bank Holiday fortunately proved fine, and a huge crowd filled the valley and lined the slopes of the hill. Large as was the crowd on the occasion of General Booth's visit, it was dwarfed that of Monday, and it is to be hoped that Mr Churchill reaped a corres- ponding harvest. Another outdoor entertainment, that given by the Scarlet Merrions in Foulkes' Oave, was also extremely well patronised. This company of entertainers are fortunate enough to be able to give their performances in the cave in case of wet weather, from whence the strains of their music may be heard from Church Walks very distinctly. They now give three, performances a day, each of which is. generally well attended. Golf, tennis, bowling and cricket afforded a wide range of pastimes to. select from. Matches were played on the cricket field on Saturday and Monday, the> Llandudno1 Club losing on Saturday to Rhuddlan and beating the Man- chester Y.M.C.A. on Monday. The four-in-hand coaches and also the motor charabancs were well patronised, the absence of dust on Mon- day making the tours very enjoyable. Many hundreds ascending the Great Orme by the, Mountain Tramway, the performances of the White Coons on the Summit being well at- tended.
