LLANSTEPHAN. CHRISTMAS. The joyous season of Christmas was observed hero as usual, although the holi- days, as they are termed, were not marked by any display as is the case in larger centres of population. Still the residents thoroughly maintained the tradition of our country in making themselves as happy as circumstances permit. It was a pleasant sight to see so many young men and women paying a visit to the scene of their childhood's years. The amount of unalloyed pleasure in the family reunion when meeting once more on the hallowed hearth, under the old paternal roof at home, sweet home It can better be imagined than described. Services were held in the Church on Christmas Day while a tea treat was given in each of the chapels, followed by an evening entertainment. Thb Church was neatly decorated for the occasion. Mrs Lewis, the Vicarage, undertook the decoration of the font; Miss Ainsley, the Chancel rails and window Miss Scott and Miss Colins, the pulpit; and the Misses Scott also did the western window Mrs Hancock. did the rest of the windows, the other parts of the Church receiving their joint attention. Willing aid was rendered by Misses Williams, Miles, James and Jenkins. VARIETY ENTERTAINMENT. On Tuesday evening, the 29th ult, a very interesting enter- taitiment was given at the National School, in aid of the funds of that institution. Mr Palmer, the organist of St. Stephen's Church, had been most indefatigable in his efforts, and was enthusiastically seconded by those who have taken part in so largely contributing to the winter's innocent amusement, benefitting a deserving institution at the same time. The entertainment referred to comprised two farces and an operetta. The two farces were exceed- ingly well performed, and reflected the greatest credit upon each individual actor. The first entitled "Twenty minutes with a tiger," was enacted as follows 'Charles Besswing (travel- ler in wines), Mr Morgan Morris Mr Chile Chutnee (retired merchant), Mr W. Williams • 'Jacob Mutter' (servant), Mr S. Palmer' 'Arabella' (daughter of Chutnee), Miss Katie Hancock I D,)Ily Mutter,' Miss E. Jones. The second farce entitled, "Area Belle con- tained the following lively characters Pitcher' (policeman), Mr S. Palmer; Tosser' (soldier), Mr E. James Walker Chalks' (milkman), Mr M. Morris I Mrs Croaker' (the Missus), Miss E. Jones Penelope (the "Area Belle"), Miss H. Williams. Between the farces an operetta in three parts was performed, entitled, Laila."
