A procession was formed to meet Mr Tenny- son Smith on his arrival by the 3-30 train, and it was a most remarkable success. It was esti- mated that fully 1200 people were in the pro- cessiion which was over a. quarter of a mile long. There were two capital bands and the juveniles wore blue sashes and with the display of banners preceding the various contingents it miade a vetry pleasant sight, and the streets in many places along the route were lined with people who gave the Lecturer a very cordial reception. About 900 people attended the recep- tion tea, after which addresses of welcome were delivered by ministers and others, this being followed by a public meeting. Two most suc- cessful meetings were held on Sunday, and in the evening the pledge tables were so crowded with people eager to sign the pledge and put on the blue ribbon that the workers had a difficulty in coping with the wotrk. EVENING SCHOOL REPORT.—H.M. In- spector's report on the Evening School, held at Lloyd Street Co-unail School, October 1908 to March, 1909. Mr J. Vaughan Humphreys, headmaster:—"These classes have been well organisedl and are doing very useful work. The nuiiibea7 of stuents was altogether 114, and their attendance was very good iln moist cases. In view of the excellent opportunities which axe provided for further instruction by competent teachers in a wide variety of subjects (such as Arithmetic. Book-keeping, Shorithaaid, Dress- making and Welsh) it is to be regretted that a mucih largar number of young people of the town dio not take advantage of the classes. Excellent eirderz prevailed when I visited the classes, and the students were interested in their work. A good supply of useful garments was shown in the needlework class. Especially interesting was the Welsih class, attended mainly by English-speaking students, who were taught on very suiitahlei methods. Many of the students obtained certificates at the end of the session in such subjects as Short- hand, Commercial Arithmetic and Book- keeping."

Llandudno, by Lady Mostyn. A number of ladies connected with, the various places of worship are taking a kindly interest in the enterprise, and will lend their aid at the stalls during the week The Mission, which is a far-reaching one, owes its existence to the late Earl of Shaftsbury, K.G., and Mr John A. Groom, and seeks to encourage help and guide the numerous classes of girls who seek their livelihood by selling flowers in the street of our large towns. It has an Orphanage at Olacton-on-Sea, and seaside and holiday home for Blind and Crip- pled girls. The orphans are trained for domestic service, and the Crippled and Blind girls are taught the beautiful art of flower- making.
