CHURCH BAZAAR AT THE TOWN HALL; On Wednesday afternoon a grand bazaar was opened at the Town Hall in aid of the Parish Church and National Schools. The affair was held under distinguished patronage, and the opening eeremony was performed at three o'oloek by the Lord Bishop of the Diocese and Mrs. Edwards in the presence of a crowded and fashionable assembly. Mrs. Edwards, who was enthusiastically received, referred to the dislike some pe)ple had to speech- making by women. She was unwilling to trouble them with a speech, and would therefore at once proceed to declare the bazaar open. Mr. P. B. Davie?-Cooke, proposed a cordial vote of thanks to Mrs. Edwards, which was seconded by Mr. John Corbett. The Lord Bishop, who upon rising received quite an ovation, said it gave him great pleasure to be present that afternoon, as the object of the bazaar was certainly one which ought to enlist the hearty and generous support of the church people of Mold. The bazaar was in aid of the Parish Church and the National Schools, in the latter case in order to enable the school managers to comply with the requicements of the Board of Education. He had during the last six weeks visited 120 schools in the Diocese, and in his opinion the requirements of the Education Department wc-e neces-ary. He was glad to be able to make this statement, and desired also to bear testimony to the zeal and ability I of the President of the Board of Elucation. His Lordship then dealt at length with the advantages of the voluntary system, and also with the importance of imparting religious instruction in schools. The Assembly Room was most artistically decorated for the occasion, and the stalls which were ten in number were heavily laden with a profusion of costly artioles. The following were the stall- holders: -Mrs. Barker and Mrs. Roberts, Mrs. Davies-Cooke. Mrs. Price Jones and Miss A. H. Jones, Mrs. Keene and Miss Rookman, Mrs. Swift, Miss Williams and Mrs. Rowdon, Mrs. Trubshaw, the members and associates of the Mold Girls' Friendly Society, and the Misses Elkington. From the outsat until the close of the day business proceeded briskly the attendance throughout the day quite exceeding the expectations of the promoters. Selections were played at intervals by the Mold Orchestral Society, and entertain-nents were given in the Anti-Room by the Alabama Coon minstrels.
