THE MONTHLY "POP" AT MAESLLYN…

THE MONTHLY "POP" AT MAESLLYN CLUB. The audience came in one by one," Gracious thinks I. They'll never be done. As I sat in my 9d. chair in the Maesllyn Club Room last Friday night, twisting my neck round every five minutes, within an ace of dislocation, to catch sight of the various celebrities, who were being so warmly greeted, as soon as a nose was recognised round the door. We are all going to start now," says I to my- self. -As the room was by this time well filled, and the able chairman (the Rector of the Parish) took his seat upon the platform, and the flag fell to a good start the first to show in front was the Crossllan Glee Party," which well deserved the applause it received (before I go any further, ladies and gentlemen, I hope you will pardon me if I cannot remember every item on the pro- gramme, as ha/ing lost mine I have to trust to my exceedingly bad memory). Following hard on their heels was a very pretty quartette, sang by the Misses Oliver and party, the solo being sang by Mr Sam Richards, who seems a tremendous favourite, and quite right, too, for he has got a very good voice. The first to signal himself out with a solo was Mr J. Jones, Blaenbachcrydd, who was loudly encored for his excellent tender- ing of a Welsh song, name unknown to me, but it had something in it (repeated very often) about "Collesytraen" (that's somewhere near it, I hope !) The fences, took the form of periodical, tableaux here and there, the first, a simple bank, being "Simple Simon" (Miss Kewley). One wag was overheard t,) remark that H fishing was out of season," but she seemed perfectly happy with an empty bucket and a bit of string. Over this fence, the local Sim Reeves, Mr T. Griffith, came with a rush, and landed amid deafening applause, at least, two lengths in front; it is needless to remark he was encored to the echo. The running over the next few fences was pretty even, and the tableaux, "Queen of Hearts" (Mis Kewley and Miss Turner), Where are you going to my pretty maid (Miss Gabler and Miss D. Tyler), and The Black Pudding" (Miss L. Tyler and Mr D. Tyler). Although they did'nt brinij down the riders, certainly brought down the house. Mr Gwyn Saunders Da vies, who had kept his field well in hand throughout the race, now took up the running, on his well-known horse, "The Soldier," and being never after headed, won, with hands down, amid ringing cheers, as he has done "many a time before. Miss Gabler, who, on Mary Jones," is second to none in the country, next past the post, and, but for the extra weight she carried with her" rags and bones," would most assuredly have run a dead heat. Even ninepen'orth of concert, must, like everything else that is enjoyable, come to an end and as I buttoned up my coat, I joined most lustily in the Three times three," which was accorded to Mrs Tyler and all the performers, who had given us such a pleasant evening.
