CriRISTMASTIDE. DECORATION OF BARRY SHOPS. A BRIEF RUN ROUND. Generally the Xmas shows may not be so fine this year as they were last, but there are several artistic shows of the leading tradesmen of tho district which are distinctly pleasing, and deserve a visit. As a palpable effort to please the public, we may easily place the window show of MR J. D. WATSON, baker and confectioner, High-street, Barry, first. There is Dot a better-stocked shop in the district, but it is not only that. Mr Watson is an artist a his way, and in hit window is a great m,) n aat .0 bis industry and artistic skill. This is nothin? less thaa a sugar St. Paul's. The labour spent in building this cathedral represents the spare hours For the past month or more. It is made of the I finest white sugar from a photograph, and is a solid, dignified-looking structure that will take iome time to melt. From the basement to the top of the cross surmounting the dome the height is over 6 feet, and it is 15 feet in circumference, so one may immagine the effect it has on the small boy, who knows well batit is made of sagar, and will, ultimately, be roiled down aud sold in penny-worths. The weight )f St Paul's is ever 1 cwt, and occupies a large part )f the shop counter, whera it will remain well on into the New Year. Each year Mr Watson ex- hibits a model of sugar, and for the past few years aas shown the Eiffel Tower, Brighton Pavilion, rower Bridge, Peuuel, Presbyteriar, Congregational ind Wesleyan Chapels, Barry, and St Paul's Church, Barry, but his latest production is by far the greatest. Of stirring novelties there is a not- ible absence all round, with the above exception, out good shows of Christmas stuffs are, neverthe- less, abundant. MESSRS D. L. EVANS AND CO., whose new premises are made to suit the public, indnot the other way about, have put the choicest telection of their big stock in the window, and ;here it will remain till after Christmas. MR H. B. ABBOT, it the bottom of Holton-road, puts his best foot to ;he fore, and in the windows are some fine reading- amps, as well as others put to a more common use. The leading grocers aud butchers show off the richest stuff that one is ACCUSTOMED TO EAT it Christmas, and at Messrs D. lestyn Jones, Barry Evan Jones, Central Stores, Barry Dock Hughes md Co, Foulkes and Co, and H. Burrows, butcher, iave done their best to ask you to tp inside. Trades and Traders would make a very interest- ng book, and if we were to tell of the pains the butcher has been to, and the tailor and the boot- maker to get in s tuff of top quality to suit the exquisite taste of the people at Christmas, for ;hen one's taste ia at its best, it would destroy you the pleasure of seeing for yeurself what is to be leen. THEATRE ROYAL, CADOXTON. This week's attraction at the Theatre Royal, Hadoxton, is, above all things, an entertainment for the family. It is one that will be as hugely enjoyed by the child us the adult, and is in itself refined and instructing. Herr Pareezer's choir, land, and sketch party is composed of eight ;alented and versatile young lady singers, who Iaim attention for a great part of the evening, and tidg the oldest and best-known classical songs oVith great success. Another part of the entertain- nect, however, is the pictorial town, being lime- ight views of different countries. This is the Dstruetive part, and to-night (Thursday) Pic- turesque Wales is to be exhibited. Illustrated •ecitals and songs are an original and popular eature of the entertainment. On Saturday next :here will be a matinee, and on Sunday sacred performances at 3.15 and 8.15. Why go to Cardiff next week ? This is the luzzling problem of all those who have hitherto jone for histrionic pleasure to that town and have tcce been to this increasingly-popular house. A jigantie attraction is provided for the Christmas holidays. The whole play next week will be under the direction of Mr W. J. Vaughan, and there is vèry evidence that it will be a great svccess.
