LLANYBRI. Christmas was not allowed to pass by unob- served in Marble Town," as it was formerly called. The humblest straw-thatched cottage was adorned with evergreens to welcome old Father Christmas," with his frost-bitten beard and wrinkled brow. In anticipation of the religious services and social festivities of the day —" Each one was dressed in his Sunday best," with pleasing appearance. At 10.30 a.m. the church bell (cloch y Llan) called the inhabitants to attend Divine service to commemorate the birth of a Saviour in the city of David," which was conducted by the Vicar, who also catechised the Sunday school from the II chapter of Saint Luke-the recitation and answers being very good throughout. The choir, under the leader- ship of Mr D. Williams, schoolmaster, rendered the musical portion of the service with spirit and good taste suggestive of the special occasion. The church was nicely decorated by the Misses Davies, Vicarage, kindly assisted by Miss Car- less (a lady from England, staying at Croft House). In the afternoon they re-assembled in the National schoolroom, where tea and cake in abundance had been provided for them by the Vicar and Mrs Davies, in accordance with the usual custom. With smiles and merry twinkles the children regaled themselves first to their heart's content, and afterwards the adults, inclu- des trus Sunday school teachers. Mrs and the Misses Davies presided at the tables, assisted by Mrs Bowen, Mrs Evans, Misses Jane, Lydia, and Frances Elias, Misses Esther and Elizabeth Jones, and Miss Mary Lodwig. In the evening, a literary meeting was held in the same room. Mr D. Williams, Cwrtmawr, was voted to the chair. The meeting was interspersed with Christmas carols, recitations, and dialogues, which proved very interesting and instructive throughout. Valuable help was given by Misses Esther and Elizabeth Jones, and Miss E. Beynon. It was a pity that many of the Church members were absent, which we hope will not be the case in future. Let us remember the old adage- In unity is strength." The usual votes of thanks were given to the Vicar for the treat to the genial chairman and to Mrs Evans for the sweets she very kindly distributed among the children. The singing of the National anthem terminated the enjoyable proceedings.
