That -the result, was they received what Llandudno has long been short of, more's the pity, a pubiliic bath! That Mr G. Ri. Thompson, the Post, Card King, has an interesting: little book,' entitled "Rowing boats and how to manage them-, a guide of amateurs." Ehuf sed.

That as the Committee; intend to make the concerts even this year, it behoves the residents to in- crease, rather than, decrease, the amount of their financial support. » That considerable headway, with the pierhead improvements, is being made by Captain Roberts and his staff. That, it attracts daily many members of the "unemployed" who are deeply in- terested in the work. » That we know of no pier in the country that is better managed than that of Llandudno.

That the entertainment itself is well worth the charges made, but parfarons will have the additional satisfaction oof knowing they are assisting a deserving cause. That the verdict, in the Typhoid case tried at Liverpool Assizes was generally con- sidered to be a, right one. Thaii to t he, ordihary lay mind the ques- tion arises as to what iis the value of expert evidence after reading that given in this and similar cases. That one is reminded of the forcible re- marks attributed to a learned judge m relation to expert witnesses, which perhaps are, better not printed. That the Missionary Exhibition at the Pier Pavilion has < proved most attrac- tive. That the, lecture on "Congoland" on Mon- day evening wa,s so impressive that, the, Committee were asked to have it re- peated. That it will therefore be given on Satur- day night.
