LORD COCHRANE3 MAJORITY CELEBRATIONS. INTERESTING PRESENTATIONS TO HIS LORDSHIP. The first cf tho many presentations to be made to Lord Cochrane on the attainment of his ma- jority, took phce at Gwrych Castle, Abergele, on Tuesday, in the presence of the Countess of Dun- donald and Lady Jean Cochrane, when the ser- vants tnd emplcyees of the Gwrych Estate pre- fented his lordship with a solid silver cigarette cote. Mr Herring, who has been in the service of the Counters for many years, and was also in the servije of tho late Mn Hesketh, of Gwrych, made the presentation on behalf of the servants. He said:—"We, the servants of Gwrych Castle and London, and employees, would ask your lordship to accept from us a small memento of our best wishes for your lordship's welfare.* We wish your lordship a long and happy life, not only to be a good and generous neighbour, but to be a good citizen of the British Empire, whom the country will expect to represent in politics or war, when we are sure the fighting capabilities of the Coch- ranes will find in your lordship a noble represen- tative." His Lordship, in reply, said:—"I do not know how to express my feelings for the kindness you have shown in presenting me with 1;}¡is beautiful cigarette box. I shall always treasure it, and con- eider it one of the most valuable of the pre- sents I shall receive, and not only on account of its intrinsic value, which is considerable, but also for its value as showing your kindness to- wards me. I do not know how to express my thanks, as the present is so unexpected. I thank you very much for your kindness" (applause). The cigarette case bore the inscription:—"To Lord Cochrane, from the servants of Gwrych Castle, on his coming-of-age, February 21st, 1907." Mr Herring then made a presentation on be- half of himself and Mrs Herring, of a silver cigarette lighter and ash tray, which was suitably inscribed. These also his lordship accepted with many thanks. TOWYN PARISHIONERS' GIFT. In addition to the presentations already re- ported, the parishioners of Towyn intend to present to his lordship a pair of field glasses. In connection with the forthcoming festivities, the Countess of Dundonald is negotiating for the engagement of a Welsh choir, conducted by Mr Edward Parry, of Abergele, with view to ob- taining their assistance in entertaining the guests at the Castle on Wednesday evening, 30th inat. The Llanddulas Silver Band have also been engaged for Thursday, October 31st.
