On Christmas Day the usual services were held, and in the afternoon and evening a competitive meeting was held in the Drill Hall. There was also a football match in the afternoon. Boxing Day was very dull, there being nothing on only a football match It is a pity that there is not some concert or something of the kind held on Boxing Day, as there is nowhere to go to to spend the evening. The want of somewhere to go to was keenly felt by many. CHRISTMAS SERVICES. At 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. Holy Communion was celebrated in Welsh and English at St Mary's and St David's Churches, whilst morning service was held at both Churches at 10.30. At 5.30 evensong was sung at St D<*vid'a Church in English, whilst at 6 evensong was said at St Mary's in Welsh, followed by carol singing, un4e, the leadership of Mr W M Pierce, the organist. All the services were of a joyous nature, and were largely attended. St Mary's Church had been tastefully decorated.—A service was also held at the English Presby- terian Churoh, when the Rev D E Jenkins, pastor, officiated.-At 10 a.m. a prayer meeting was held at the Pendref (Wesleyan) Chapel. C DAY AT THE ASYLUM. Christmas day was well reooguised at the Asylum. The various halls and wards of the Institution had been most tastefully decorated, and presented a very gay appearance. The Patients enjoyed a hearty dinner of roast beef and plum puddings, and also in the afternoon a delicious tea. In the evening the usual Christmas dance was held, and a large crowd, as visitors, partook in the evening's enjoyment whieh took place in the spacious new hall. During the interval, Masters John Henry and Gwilym Jones, Hall-square, gave a song accom- panied by the mandoline and banjo. A song was also rendered by Dr Cox; after which a duet was given by Miss L Hall and Mr C M Humphreys. Mr J Lloyd Williams acted as aooQBipanist during the evening. Following upon this, the usual distribution of sweets, oranges, &c., to the Patients took place. A most ebjoyable evening was brought to a close with the singing of the National Anthem. THE SNOW STORM. The prospects of a white Christmao" were realised this time, for on Christmas morning the roofa were white owing to the snow and hail which had fallen the night previous. After the fall a slaarp frost bad set in, and the roads in Bome places were quite slippery. The day was very cold, and in the evening there was another heavy fall, which continued for the best part of the night. On Boxing Day the ground was thick with snow, and the prospects for the football match looked extremely gloomy. But the oommittee and groundsman of the Denbigh Town Club had the snow cleared UD and carted off the playing area. About 2 o'clook it looked as if their labour had been in vain, for another heavy fall was experienced. This, however, did not last long, and it soon cleared up again. During the evening snow fell again in a blizzard, and covered the ground to the depth of three or four inches. Snow- balling was in full swing. The roads on Thursday wera vary slippery, and it was nith difficulty that people were abie" wjilk, let, alone the horses, Snow and again fel|,» during Thursday, and afterwards a frbaw set in i
