CONCERT AT LLANCARFAN. SCHOOL CHILDREN'S ANNUAL ENTER- TAINMENT. On Friday evening last the scholars of the Llaa" carfan Board School entertained a packed audience at the sehoolroom.

The entertainment on Friday night was no exception to the rule, the various items of the programme being admirably gone through. Un- stinted praise is due to Mr Davies and Miss Arm- strong for the patience and perseverance they must have bestowed in so excellently training the little ones.
