It wtill be conducted quite apart from the girls' school, with separate entrance, play- ground. etc. This department will be under the personal supervision of the principals, assisted by fully qualified mistresses. CONCERT.—A very interesting evening was spent last Tuesday at the "One Ash" Boarding Residence, in Gloddaeth Street, the occasion being a concert organised by the visitors. The large dining room was transformed. into' a con- cert hall, with a roomy platform prefttily de- corated with plants. Much amusement was caused by the' eccentric nature of the wording of the programme, which were eagerly sought after by those present, to be retained as amus- ing souvenirs of the occasion. Amolngsit those who so kindly contributed to the success of the eveiiing were, Miss E. Rogers, who- sang "The Lost Chord," with much feeling:. Miss, G. Gregory gave pretty renderings of "Who'll buy my Lavender and Roses." Mr H. Hyde played and sang in fine style. Mr A. H. Gib- son held his hearers, and was loudly applauded for two excellent violin solos. Other items were' a lecture by Mr W,. G. Hoopetr, F.R.A.S., on the "Evolution of the Universe," a clever recitation by Mr A. M. Dickins. and a terribly real ghost impersonation by Mr Henderson. At the close of the evening a hearty vote of thanks was given to the entertaineil's and to Mrs Chas. Richardson and Mr Frank A. Kovachi, the former for her kindness in giving every facility for the holding of so pleasant, an even- ing, and to the latter for hi; endeavours to make the entertainment a real success.—Coon-' municated. MALICIOUS DAMAGE.—At Llandudno- Police Court on Monday, Thomas Williams and Wil- liam Williams, Penihynside, brothers, were charged with doiag malicious damage iïo. notice boards, the' property of Lady Augusta 1 Mostyn.

He remonstrated with them, and was told by Thomas Williams that a man like himself would have, been shot in South Africa. They also pulled) up some barbed wire fencing and attempted to uproot a seat placed in the woods for the convenience of the public. In company with P.G. Williams, stationed at Penrhynsidei, he identified Thomas Williams in a public house at Penrhynside and William Williams in RhoisrionSe.a.-P.C.

Artistes at ttte Pier Gancepts. MIS0 ADA FORREST (Soprano). 12th Special, July 231"d. MISS ROSINA BEYNON (Contralto). July 23rd to July 29 ill.
PIER PAVILION CONCERTS. ELEVENTH GRAND SPECIAL. The huge attendance at this concert on Saturday last must have gladdened the heart of the Pier Company's Chancellor of the Ex- chequer, Late comers if in parties of three or four found a difficulty in securing seats adjoin- ing one another, and long before 8 o'clock the better class seats were tested to their utmost capacity. The ,opening item, Gounod's Ballet, "Romeo and Juliet/te," came in for the warmest ap- proval, which testified in no unmistakable man- ner, that the audience was an appreciative one. This was further proved by their reception of Berlioz overture, "Benvenuto Oellini." MR. CHARLES TREE (Baritone). Mr Tree, who is undoubtedly in the first rank of popular vooal favourites, was given a fine reception, and sang for his first songs, Schumann's "Ich Grolle Nidht" and Leon- cavallo's "Air de Zaza, this last song, by the way, was sung for the first time in England. The inevitable encore followed, Mr Tree re- s'ponding with "The Elfin King," which strongly reminded us of the old-time favourite, "Will o' the Wisp." In the second half Mr Tree's songs set down were Montague Philips' "Grey Eyes" and Kennedy Russell's "Young Tom o' Devon." Tlhis latter was sung as, only > Mr Tree can sing it. "For everyday" was his j reply to the loud recalls for an encore. Dur- j ing Mr Tree's week's visit he has met with the same success whioh has, always been his when- ever be appears at Lland'udno, (double encores nightly, an appreciation from, the hands of the public which he has always thoroughly earned, Mr Tree has undoubtedly studied his audiences, and no one knows better how to. .cater for their wants. We learn that he is busily engaged during his spare moments in writing a book on voice production, and shall look forward to its publication at an early date with considerable interest. MISS EiS'T'A D'ARGO (Sloprano). The press opinions of this cantatiriee, which we published in our last week's notes, were fully confirmed by her excellent renditions at this. concert. Verdi's Aria, "Ernani! Involami" (Eirnani) was most pleasingly sung, and the ovation which followed was more than merited, it. was richly deserved. "Cloming thro' the Rye" followed as an encore. In the second half she sang Claw en's "Tihe Swallows," for which sihe was given a very decicled encore. She complied with an unknown song, .and for which she was so persistently applauded that she responded, with a third tsel-ection, "Poor Wandering One," from "The Pirates of Penzance," self-accompanied. It is not often that lady vocalists at the pier concerts secure double encores, and Miss Esta D'Argo is to be ,c'ong;ra.tulatl8d.. Slhe. sang with ddightful dis- tinction a-nd freshness, and has established a name for herself, with Llandudno audiences, that will linger in their memory. Miss Esta D'Argo is a native of Yorkshire, being born in a little village near Dewsbury. At a very early age ighe migrated to Australia, and was trained for the vocal profession by Arturo Steffani, an Italian teacher of con- siderable note. Mis a D'Argo, it will be interest- ing to learn, has appeared in all the leading towns in Italy in Italian Opera with pro- nounced success ( MR. A. HALL (Cornet Solo). I We have frequently heard Mr Hall's cornet soli, but we doubt if he has ever given us a finetr treat than 'on Sunday last, when he play- ed Sullivan's "The Lost Chord." Another item that appealed to us was the Serenade for flute and horn, by Messrs. IBalstead and Marshall. It was much appreciat-eid by the other members of tlle larchie,stra, and the audience would have demanded a lepeat ion any other occasion. MISS GERTRUDE WINCHESTER (Contralto). Miss Winchester iiiade her debut before a Llandudno audience at Monday evening's con- cert. and for her rendition of GoTing Thomas' Recit and Aria, "O my heart is weary" Nadieshda) was most heartily encored. She com- plied with Ed. Murray's "The Nights," and again proved herself a most gifted vocalist. A Blristolian, trained by George Risley, we predict! for Miss D'Argo a successful careen- both in oratorio and miscellaneous concerts. The possessor of a fine contralto voice of good o c, d range and exceptional quality, her every word in both songs was heard with distinction in all parts of the house. ORCHESTRAL ITEMS. At this same concert, Mr Payne had set down Moszowski's Suite "From Foreign Parts," and a, most enjoyable suite it is, and thoroughly en- joyed. judging by the continuous applause. Another item was Mr J. H. Fculds' 'oello solo in Thome's Simple Aveu, a, most delightful theme, for the excellent playing of which Mr Foulds had to bow his acknowledgements of the audience's. warm -approval which followed at the close. YIR. ARTHUR PAYNE (S'olo Violinist). Several items of considerable interest were given at Tuesday evening's concert, notably Massenet's Grand March, "Swabadi," which has not been heard at Llandudno for some time. It came in for special recognition, as did also Sarnefelt's, "Prseludium" and .Sibelius' "Valse Tiiste." Mr Payne's violin solo, 1st Move- ment from Mendelssohn's "Concerto in E minor," was brilliantly executed, and so loud and long were the recalls for more that Mr Payne gave the second movement, which if the less intricate from an audience's- point of view more charming music, and again the applauc was long sustained. To play two, such exacting solos after conducting flour heavy items pre- viously is no mean perflormancel, and Mr Payne thoroughly deserved d-ieyast hoobtained in the fifteen minutes interval. TWELFTH GRAND SPECIAL. MISS ROSINA BEYNON (Contralto). The vocalists for to-morrow, Saturday night's Twelfth Grand Special, are Miss Ada Forrest, soprano, and Miss Rosina Beynon, contralto. Neither of these laidies require any introduction to Llandudnoites. Miss Beynon has been a huge favourite for several years past, and can a.lways be irelied upon to inspire the warmest enthusiasm; no matter what tire .subject matter of her song, light and gay, sad or pathetic, Miss Beynon gives her audiences the imprecision that the song has been written fotr her special- ly, and she always sings with a dramatic force that commands attention and never fails to secure a further demand. MISS ADA FORREST (Soprano). Miss Ada Forrest, the distinguished South African vocalist, was heard at the pier coincetts atsufficienltly recent a date1 to be remem- bered by both visitors and residents, that in our notesi of tihis concert we were able to announce that at Miss Forrest's next visit to Llandudno she would sing a Dutch "Taal" song. In her recent visit to. South Africa Miss Ada Forrest sang this little song with great ,success in those towns where the Dutch pre- ponderate. The chief meriti, of this song is its simplicity, and 'we have been able to. secure the English word's of "De Gefopte Vogelaar," "The- Cheated Fowler." Miss Forrest, as a child, lived in the Transvaal near the Sheba reef at Burberton. and tspoke "the Taal" fluently. At early morn the fowler bent his way; With subtle snares the trees and hedges hung, Well skilled in cunning wisdom to betray, He trills a lure with sweet and merry tongue Tjoe 1 Tjoe! Tioel The little finch, in silence on the tree. Observes the fowler and, wirtfh head awry, 'Thinkis, "You aa-e .cunning', but you -don't catch me!" And with a gladsome chirp wings to the sky With, "Wiho is the big est cheater, you or I?" Ha Ha! Ha! 9 MR. DOUGLAS MILLER (Pianist). At this same concert we are to have an op- portunity of hearing for the first time at Llan- dudno. a young Liverpool pianist, Mr Douglas Milker, one of M. Leopold Godsowsky's most promising pupils. 'In addition to being a pianist of considerable promise Mr Miller has also talents -as a composer. Madame Louise Dale, who is well-known at Llandudno, having recently sung with success, at the &t. George's Hall, Liverpool, a group of songs, the words and music of which were from his pen. Mr Miller is spoken of as a clever executant, his playing being noticeable for its technical accuracy and high intelligence, and we look forward with added interest to to-morrow even- ing's concert, when he makes his debut before a Llandudno audience. MARK HAMBOURG. On Friday afterno,on next, July 29th, at 3 o'clock, Mark Hiambourg will give a pianoforte recital at the Pier Pavilion, assisted' by Miss M. T'empesit, soprano. Mark H-am-bourg has twice previously been heard at Llandudno, and his talented playing ijs sufficiently well-known to secure for him a large and interested audience. BOWLS.—Mr W. Williams, secretary of the Llandudno Bowling Club, has won tlhe club championship for the fitlh time, beating Mr R T Jones in the final by 21 to 11. He will hold the Will Owen Cup for the year, and also. re- ceive a gold meidal. DEPARTURE OF MR. WYARD.—Mr Wyard, late postmaster of Llandudno, has left the town to take up his duties at Warrington. On -Sunday evening at Holy Trinity Church House, he was presented with a handsome silver ink- stand as a mark of appreciation of his services as a. sidesman at Holy Triini-ty for the past fourteen years. The presentation. was made; by the Rector on behalf of the clergy and church OffiCieirS, Mr Wyard suitably acknowledging. HOLY TRINITY CHURCH.—This church was crowded on Sunday evening last, when the Rev. LI. R. Hughes, M.A., preached. Notwith- standing tlhe large congregation the ventilating arrangements were quite: adequate to allow the service being held without the least discomfort to the worshippers. For the remainder of the summer there will be a double morning ser- vice at 10 15 and 11 15 o'clock.

WITH THE ENTERTAINERS. GRAND THEATRE. DIANA OF DOBSON'S. The Grand Theatre opened its season on Monday with that popular play, "Diana of Dobson's," and if the first three nights of this week are any criterion .of what is to follow the season of 1910 at the Grand will be one cf the best this popular theatre has known. The programme commenced Nyitl-i a realistic "cur- tain raiser," "Out Wect," which cannot .cer- tainly be described as wanting either in ani- mation or thrills, and then followed; the play of the evening, opening with that somewhat daring bedroom scene, which never fails to excite interest and amusement not unmixed with pity fm the drab grey life of the Girls at Dobson's. The play is well acted throughout from Miss. Eina Boyne as "Diana," and Mr Brisco Owen as "Captain the Hon. Victor Br ether ton," to the smallest- part. The pro- gress of "Diana" from the shop to the fashion- able Swiss hotel and her descent after she had spent her £ 300 to the Thames Embankment is followed) with sympathetic interest, and so stirred were some of the audience by Diana's outspoken reasoning that they could not repress their feelings at times and gave vent, to such expressions of their sentiments as "Hear, hear," and other signs of approval. To'-night (Friday) Mr Leigh Lovel's Company will perform Sidney Grundy's evergreen favourite. "A Pair of Spectacles," and to- morrow evening (Saturday) that amusing farce, "In the Soup" will be staged. THE ORCHESTRA. An excellent orchestra has been engaged, and is again under the direction of Mr Wilhelm Russell. The programmes of selections during the week have been admirably rendered and much appreciated by the audiences. "WHERE IS WILLIAM 1" It is all very well asking where he is, but first of all people want to know who is Wil- liam. Well, to be quite accurate, there are two Williams. Herein lies the whole story. Everything in this, the most laughable of all comedies, depends upon the remarkable like- ness between Sir William Gregory, a retired grocer, and William Jolly, his old shop assist- ant, whom he has installed in his Upper Toot- ing mansion -as butler. Though the two men glory in their mutual resemblance to one another, their similarity is a source of endless trouble and perplexity to everybody but them- selves. -So holiday makers, if you want a real wholesome evening's amusement (and who does not in these days), go and see "William" at the above theatre on one of the- first three nights of next week. He will help you to throw off the cares and wox-ries of business and domestic life, and give you an ache in your sides, and take the one away from your heart. By the way, the author of "Where is William ?"- Charles Windermere—is appearing in the prin- cipal part. They say he is funnier in this than he was in "Charley's Aunt." Wait and see. "CANDIDA" BY MISS HORNIMAN'S CO. Bernard Shaw's famous play, "Candida" is announced at the Grand Theatre. Llandudno. on Thursday, July 28th, and will be performed by an excellent Company directed by Mr Edwin T. Heys. The artistes include Mr Ian Maclaren, the well-known chief of the Ian Maclaren Shakespearian Company, and one of the finest actors on the English stage. Keen ,critics have described Miss. Hamiman's Com- pany as being 'far above the level of the West End', and no higher testimony to the excel- lence of the Company now appearing in "Candida" may be adduced than the fact that all the ,artistes excepting one are picked from that renowned combination. And the excep- tion is Miss. Maire O'Neill, the wonderful Irish actress. Irishwomen are famed for their beauty and Frenchwomen for their vivacity. Miss Maire O'Neill combines by birth the charms of both. Quite a young Igirl of extra- ordinary beauty, "delightfully fresh and win- some, wonderfully womanly and tender" ("Daily Telegraph") with a voice so beautiful that it has been described-as- 'like listening to soft music' ("Referee") with the grace and ¡ dignity of a Queen. A temperament of bound- less range and! capacity "an actress of striking personality who lends distinction to everything tihat she doies" ("Standard.Maire O'Neill is beyond question the most naturally gifted of any woman at present on the stage. Summed up by the 'Sunday Chronicle" she 'is one whom the gods have blessed.' This is the .actress ap- proved by the great G.B.S. himself as the delineator of Candida, his most beautiful and enchanting womanly -creation.
CHURCHILL'S MINSTRELS. The popular afternoon rendezvous during the past week has been the Happy Valley, where Mr W. J. Churchill's troupe of minstrels have delighted thousands, of visitors. The large audiences in the Valley have proved that the popularity of the minstrels has in no way fallen off, which is not at all surprising when the quality -of the entertainment given by Uncle Willie and his merry troupe is taken into consideration. The present troupe is one of the best ever controlled by Mr Churchill.
REVILL HALL & COMPANY. Now that the merits of the entertainment given by Mr Revill Hall and Company at the Hippodrome Gardens are becoming better known, the audiences increase in size daily. A well-fitted pavilion has been erected in which the entertainments are given, and the artistes include Fred Nettleton (quaint comedian), Rosie Rae (dainty soubrette and dancer), Theo. Reed Penand (coon singer, dancer and speciality artiste), James Wilkinson (a baritone who has successfully appeared at many Scotch, Welsh and North of England concerts), Lucie Wilson, L.C.M., R.C.M. (pianist and accompanist) and the proprietor, Mr Revill Hall.

The pictures are changed completely twice weekly, and are selected from the latest and best, humorous, dramatic and other films by the leading producers. The entertainments are given twice daily, at 3 and 8.
ROLLER SKATING. The Hippodrome, Skating Rink is undoubted- ly one of the prettiest and best-fitted rinks in the Kingdom, with a floor surface as perfect as is humanly possible to obtain. The management have. arranged a series of Cinderellas, masked seaside and farmyard car- nivals to take place on Wednesday nights until the end of the season. For these occasions an extension has been granted until, eleven o'clock. Particulars of these will be given week by week in our advertising pages. The Hippodrome is open for three sessions daily, and the rink will be found one of the best appointed 'in the Kingdom.
RIVER TRIPS. Large numbers of visitors have availfed them- selves of the opportunity afforded by the steamers of the St. George Steamship Company to make a trip up the Oonway River to Trefrdw. The company is the oldest plying on the river, and thelir steamers axe most commodious and comfortabla. Llandudno visitors travel by train 101' walk to Deganwv to join: the steamer. Tickets are only sold on board. Times of starting change to the state of the tide, the sailings this week being all in the afternoon.
COACH TOURS. For very many years the t-ours of the Llan- dudno Coaching Company have been appre- ciated by visitors to Llandudno. The Company has done much to make the town the centre for tourists, and can still hold its own against faster means of locomotion. The tours of the Company are arranged at convenient fames, morning, afternoon and evening, par- ticulars of which may be obtained at the Com- pany's offices. Queen's Hotel Gardens. The places visited include Colwyn Bay. Bodnant Hall, Bettwsycoed, in addition to the longer loop tours round Snowdon. etc,

PRINCE'S THEATRE. Cinematograph entertainments are being given at this theatre nightly. For next week the manager has secured a skit -on the Jeffries- Johnson fight, entitled "Black v. White," which is warranted to evoke roars of laughter. Other special films include "The Tenderfoot's Triumph," the Bournemouth International Aviation meeting." "Field Marsha) Velars," "The Ghost of Mudtown." etc. The services of Mr Clem Brown, the well-known local tenosr, have also been secured for the week.
GOLF. GREAT ORME v. COLWYN BAY. The above match was played on the Orme Links on Saturday last in good golfing weather. The teams have met once before this season at Colwyn Bay. when the Orme team were victorious, so that the Bayites came with the firm intention of having revenge, but un fortunately found the home Club -at full strength with the result that the Orme Club won 8 matches andihalv,ed one. More than ordinary interest- was attached to the game be- tween Mr T. C. Mellor and Mr Holmes, this being the third meeting of the two, Mr Holmes having won the two previous games, Mr Mellor after being dormy two won on the home green. The following were the T-esults:- r!

SEA TRIPS. With the exception of last Sunday's Sailings from Llandudno the Liverpol and North Wales Steamship Company have been able to carry through the long and varied programme of sea trips. On Sunday the sea unfortunately was too rough for passengers to be landed at the Pier Head. The full service of steamers is now in operation for the season, and day excursions aiiranged to Blackpool. Douglas, Liverpool, Carnarvon and Holyhead.. These trips are in addition to the regular daily :servie,e from Liverpool to Menai Bridge -and back by the principal vessel of the fleet. La Marguerite. The coast service is exceptionally good this season, and the smaller steamers are run in such a way as to give connection at Llandudlllo with the boats for the Isje of Man and Black- pool. A development of the travel fa-cilities in connection with the Company's steamers is the issuing of through ltiickets from Menai Bridge. Bangor, Beaumaris, and Llandudno to Belfast at cheap rates. The passengers travel to Liver- pool by La Marguerite, and from Liverpool to Belfast by the Belfast Steamship Company's boat from the Prince's Landing Srage the same night, returning from Belfast at 9 p.m., and transferring dnto the North Wales steamer at Liverpool the following morning. Circular tour tickets are also issued to the Isle of Man and Liverpool in cooperation with the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company.
