I' PIERROTS ON THEIR DIGNITY. THEY REAP GOOD HARVEST FROM SEASIDE ENTERTAINMENTS. Pierrot is deeply angered by a statement which he regards as derogatory to his art and dignity. "Tii'iS is the time ok tuie year," he reads, "wtoeu your untUiployed actor spends 7s 6d on a cheap costume. and makes for the seaside, to repair hia broken fortunes in tiie di«giuae of a myster- ious minstrel." In truth, t.he day is lotng past when the busi- ness of al fresco entertJuiments was canted on in this casuad way. Artista of the highec-t dis- tinction—Mr Malcolm Scott, for insta.nce—bcok a Pierrot engagement alternatively with one at the Palace Theatres. In North. \V aies resorts the .names of Ade,Jer and Sutton are almost household wcrde. They have about fifteen troupes under th, lir direction, who v 5 t the principal" resorts in England 3.ud4 Wales, and their entertainments are always of the best possible clafs. Mr W. J. Churchill, of IJandudno nj,nstrel fame, was at one time a celebrated "Pierrot," and Mr Whit CuniiHo occasionally done the picturesque garb of these seaside entertainers. For years past the entertainment of visitors to the seaside has been systematised are carefully as that, say, of the Moss Empire tour. It em- plovfi no fewer than 1000 artists at this moment, and 'it is now almost unknown for Pierrot to solic't tho casual contribution of his audiences. Probably he was better off when he did 60. Then a certain stigma attached to the business, and the perfortner, hiding his blushes for choice under a suit of burnt cork, jcaousJy concealed his dentitv. But he was content to come back to London in the autumn with a hundred sov- ereigns or so as his share of the takings of the t r () IH).(\. The music publishers reap a rich harvest out of a Pierrot. They allow him to st-ng the songs of popular music-hall favourites, iaiid make him up a. temptingly cheap parcel of song's, for the sale of a ballad mado popular by the sad sea waves is greatdy increased. On the West Coast there is an elaborate cr- ganisation of al fr-eoco entettaintnents by a firm running twenty troups and interchanging week- ly. The company is usually made up of four vocahsts. capable of rolos and concerted piece?, a comedian or "drawing room entertainer," and a lvanist. This fiirri keeps from one to two hundred peo- ple employed throughout the summer, at salaries ranging frci n £ 3 to £ 10, with an occasional star ensae-ement. The work is more exacting than that of the music hall or the concert-hall, but the life is healthy to a degreo. Fa: iure, of Perrot proprietors airc .not frequent and many of them makes fortunes.
LLANRWST RURAL DISTRICT COUNCIL. THE MEDICAL OFFICERSHIP. The monthly meeting of the above Council was held on Tuesday, the Rev. H. Rawson Wjl- hu «s presiding. The following members were also Dretent: Messrs John Aobti-ts, J.P., Row- land liuiriiest, Meiedith Owen, D. Owen* J Davies, D. Lewis, E. Edwards, together with the clerk (Mr R. R. Owen) and the surveyor (Mr Maurice Roberts). MEDICAL OFFICER OF HEALTH. The Clerk informed the meeb:ng that the Council's contribution to the salary of the Medi- cal Officer of Health would be E6. Mr John Roberts remarked that he was given to understand at the joi it meeting o<f tHe re- presentat.'veti that the share would only be from JB3 to 1;4. He understood that Aethwy and Dwy ra,n had decided to separate themselves from the Combination. and he asked if that would be possible in the case of Llanrwst rural district The Clerk contended that the districts men- tioned could not sever their connection with the comb unU the expfrativwi of the Or- der in 1910. The Bettwsycoed Urban District Council had decided to join the Combination, but it transnii cd (hat. there were dUficulties in the way, so if tliey could not join the other dis- trictf\ could not disestablish theiiiL-Qlves from it He found that the Demb-gliMiire County Council had anuoinfced ti:»r own medical inspec- tor of schools, whereas the Carnarvon Couuty Council dene.oded on the medical officer of health, w:th the result that if Llanrwst Rural Couiiou W-4, not careful they would be paving the sum tw,.(,,e over. Mr J. Roberta contended tihat it would be to the advantage of tho Comic 1 to have their own Medical officer of health, who would thus be at x'o to attend the meetings. The Clerk explained that the Local Govern- ment Beard had advised the Llanrwst Urban Council to api;o nt the same medcal officer of health as the Combination. It was resolved that tho Chairman, Mr J. Roberts, and the Clerk t-lio-ald consider the sub- iect. and draw cut a report for the next mcet- ing. ALLEGED NUISANCE AT TALYCAFN. The Clerk re-ported that the Local Government Board had replied to h e letter re the alleged nuisance caused by the drainage system at Taly- cafn ccr.nphiined of by Mr David Ilugihes, and thev requested to be furnished with the medical officer's report, on the subject. On the motion of Mr J. Roberts, seconded by Mr D. Owevn. it was decided to instruct the medical officer to draw out a report on the matter. VITAL STATISTICS. The birth-rate in the dieti/ct was 24 per an- num. aid the death rate for the year was 18.7. Eleven births had taken place during July and seven deaths, tiho latter bei,ng at the rate of 19.2.

He was further instructed to pJaoo notices on the paths to the effect that they were ope.n to the nublic. SPEED OF MOTOR CARS. Mr W. E. Halhed, Brynderwen, wrote com* plairring of the excessive speed of motor cars passing his rei-idence, and at the same time sug- jrestina- that the Counc] should place notices on the roadside warning miotorists not to exceed tho speed Linut The Clerk was instructed to expJain to Mr Haihed that he should approach the County Co unci. as the Rural Council had no jurisdiction I in the macer.

There was another huge audience at the eleventh grand special omert gi\en on Satur- day evening, when Madame Edna Thornton was tho special vocalist, and this was her second appearance this season. She was accorded a hearty reception when she appeared to sing the aria "Softly awakes my heart, from"Sam- Bou et Delilah," of which she gave a most dra- matic rendering, and responded to a determined encore with a pretty English ballad. She was equally successlul in Eigar's popular composi- tion, "Land of Hope and Giol-y. Mr Bridge Peters was the other vocalist, and was heard to advantage in Stanford's two **Songs ol the Ika. -entitled "Drake Drum" and "rhe Old Superb." In his second number Mr Peters sang "My old Shako" (TrotereJ and was deservedly encored for all his items. The orchestral programme opened with Weber's Overture to "Oberon,' followed by Wagners Grand Fantasia" Lohengrin," after which David Clefcg's new soena lor orcliestra, and Drums, "The llammer of Thor" was, ven nhe percussion ejects (representing the ham- mer of the Norwegian War God) were splendid- ly done by Messrs Dunn and Jennings, after which followed a lit tie pastoral, introducing the cor anglaise and Alpine horn, also bird passages Suggestive of rural life, followed by the trumpet march for a church festival introducing chuirch bells, etc. The performance of this piece was admirably conducted by the composer, Mr Da- vid Clegg, who at the conclusion, was loudly applauded. I The orchestra next gave Tschaikowsky's over- turn '1812'' by special request, which was great- ly appreciated by the largo audience, who de- itianded an encore. In the second part of the programme Liszt's "Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2" was given by re- quest, followed by "The Highland Patrol, "Wee Macgregor" (Amers), and Gungl's waltz Ammoret tentanzi." SACRED CONCERT. At the sacred concert on Sunday evening1, a violinoello quartette by J. 11.

Midgley contributed a bassoon solo FLORODORA AT THE PRINCE'S THEATRE. For th-j first three nights of this week, the Pri nee s Tneatr* his 'been filldd to its utmost I capacity, and many were unable to gain admis- sion. So creat has been tho demand for seats at this popular playhouse recently that the man- agtl,nior.t are Oo.-isidering the advisability of re- Luildiner the 1heatte on an eorlargted scale at the close of the n-vse.nt season. Mr Wtson, the genial manager, hiw provided lie numerous BatroBs thlI week with one of the brightest cf wueieal comedies, the ever popular "Floro- dora," which was produced by Mr Charles Con- stant's No. 1 Company, a.nd included such talented artistes as Lillie Blythe, Miss Daisy Lake, and Mr Gus Danby, the former as Lady HÔlyrood" the, taotfuA widow, tmakiing a great "ihit." In her song "Tact," Miss Blythe refers to the members of the present Govern- ment in a most amusing manner. Her references to the President of the Board of Trado was un- doubtedly one of the best hits of the evening, and was as follows;- T1 en vou enter Parliament, As youai Winston "heaven sent," To become a very big Conservative, But the TcTiee will not let You into the Cabinet. So you say there's <\nJy one alternative. Then vou catch the Liberal vote, You very promptly turn your coat, There you are, your'e now a little Rad, Sei ne people ma.y look sad; Others eay that you'r quite mad, But none will ever say you're really bad. Tact. Tact! ta.ke It fcr a fact, I'm in the Cabinet because I know just how to act. So if vour'e unkind to me. Then I'll pop off to Dundee; Yes, I'll fly away to Scotland with my tact! Yes, nl fly away to Scotland with my tact I Mis., Da'sy Lake as "Dolores," the girl in love with I.ord Abercocd, is the possessor of a brilliant soprano voice. In her so,ngs she dis- played much operatic style, her fine. voice ring- It, g, throughout the building a.nd bringing forth -^tevm'.ned recalls. Mr Danby as "Anthony i)uyc!i," a phrenologist, was refmonsible for tho humour of the piece, and did not fail to keep his audience :n cne continuous roar of 'auffhtor th." whole time he was (J.n tho stage. The other vocalists also admirably pourtrayed their i-art-r The choriii-es were well rendered bv .t bodv of well balanced voices, and the play was well staged thioughout. "YOU CAN NEVER TELL." Th forthcoming visit on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, of Massr* E. Taylor Platt and Trevor Lowe's company is unusually interesting. "You Can Never Tell" is unquestionably the most popular of all the playe by G. Bernard Shaw, and it is bevond a doubt the funniest. There is not on,f, duN moment the whole even- ing. Mr E. Tavlor PJatt as the well-known London business manager fox Messrs Vedrenne a.nd Birkor. NEXT WEEK'S FROGRAMME. For .next week, at the Prince's Theatre. we are. promised a great attraction, when Mr Leelie Faber and Miss Winifred Arthur Jones are an- nounced to appear in "The L.-ars," "The Manoeuvres of Jane," and other weJI-known plavs. Of all the brilliant oclmedies written by Mr Henry Arthur Jones, none have been more successful than "The Liars" and "The Man- oeuvres of Jane." Though they have been plaved many thousands of times all over the world, thev have lost none ci their popularity or grip upon the pubVc. The pressent tour of these comedies is specially interesting, owing' to the fact that an umisuallv excellent London com- pn.nv, headed by Mr Lcdie Faber and M:rs Winifred Arthur Jones, has been selected to present them MR. LESLIE FABER, Mr Leslie Faber s London career under the auspices of among others Mr diaries Froh- nian Sir John Hare Sir Charles Wyndham and Mr George Alexander is well-known to all. A few mon-h ago American audiences were enor- mously enthusiastic over his rendering of "Edgar Linnell" in "The Hypocrites" by Henry Arthur Jones. He repeated his success in the same part in England, and the opportu- nity now given of seeing him in the above comedies is quite unique and should on no ac- count be missed. xHSS WINIFRED ARTHUR JONES. Again the management have been most for- tunate in securing Miss Winifred Arthur-Jones to appear in her original parts of "Lady Jes- sica" and "Jane." Provincial playgoers are not likely to forget her suoccss in "The Second in Command," in which, of course, Eho played the leading role. THE GRAND THEATRE. Mr H. B. Irving and Miss Dorotli-ea Baird and their talented company have been attract- ing crowded audiences to the Grand Theatre for the first three evenings of this week. On Monday evening, Mr Irving pourtrayed the dual parts in "The Lyons Mail" of "Joseph Lesurques" and "Dubox" with great effect, whilst Miss Dorothea Baird displayed some fine acting as Janette. They were supported by a powerful caste, all of whom did full justice to the parts allotted them. "The Lyons Mail" was preceded by "The Sergeant of Hussars in which Miss Dorothea Baird appeared to great advantage as "Jeane," and was supported by Mr Stanley Hamlett and Mr Frank Cochrane. On Tuesday evening "Hamlet" was played to another large audience Mr Irving appear- ing in the title role and Miss Baird as Ophelia. On Wednesday evening the late Sir Henry Irving's masterpiece "The Bells" was given, Mr H. B. Irving taking the part of "Mathias up- holding the fine reputation he has made. "The Bells" was preceded by a one-act play entitled "King Rene's Daughter," in which Miss Baird appeared as Iolantne. Mr Irving and Miss Baird with their excel- lent company have proved one of tho successee of the present season at the Grand. "THE HYPOCRITES." For the latter half of this week the manage- ment of the Grand Theatre have arranged a visit by Mr Charles Frohman's principal com- pany with Henry Arthur Jones' remarkable play "The Hypocrites." Mr jones is regarded by many as our finest playwright and oe tainly in "The Hypocrites" he has given us of his best. So much so that because of its intense human interest and sensationally vivid appeal "The Hypocrites" has been called "The great- est of dramatic triumphs." It has proved its right to this title by the unparalleled success it has won in all parts of the world. On its first production at the Hudson Theatre, New York, there were hurricanes of tempestuous approba- tion, and "The Hypocrites" secured the longest run on record for a serious play in New York. When the play was brought to London, the enthusiasm was just as remarkable, and wherever the plav has been seen in the Provinces it has had unbounded success Mr Jones has given us nothing- more dramatic and convincing, and Mr Frchman's Company is in every way worthy of the play. Mr A. B I meson, who plays the curate, is an actor of rare talent and experience. For years he playfed leading parts on tour With Mr Edward Comp- ton and with Mr Martin- Harvey, and in Lon- don with Mr Beerbohm Tree, Mr Cyril Maude, and M, Arthur Bourch&r. Miss Amy Ravens- croft, the "Mrs Wilmore," played leading parts in London and on tour with Mr Forbes Ho- bertson, Mr William Gillette, and Mr Beer- bohm Tree. Miss Gladys Harvey ("Rachel Neve") played the leading parts in "Sherlock Holmes" and "The Drums of OUdEY' and a prominent part in "My Wife." Mr King Ford- ham, "Lennard Wilmore," is a son of the well- known London magistrate, has. played leading parts on tour, and was in London with Mr George Alexander in "Old Heidelberg," and with Mr Arthur Bourchier in "Mr Sheridan." Other members of this unusually strong and well-balancod company are Mr Charles Harley, who has played most of Sir Charles Wyndham a parts on tour; Mr Alfred S. Barber, the original "Hankey Bannister" in "The Walls of Jericho" on tour, Mr Cecil Brooking, who played "The Marquis of Steventon" in "Tho Walls ot Jericho" at the Shaftesbury Theatre, London, Mr Sydney Hamilton, Mr Hanworth Browning, Mr Douglas Jefferies, Miss Gladys Purnell, Miss Florence Stoventon, Mic8 Madge Soverne, and Miss Violet Harley. The actual scenery and dresses used during tho run of "The Hypocrites" at tho Hicks Theatre, London, will be> s"'n here next week. The tour is under the direct-ion of Mr Silvanus Dauncev. who sent such excellent companies on tour with "Tho Walls of Jericho," "My Wife." "Joseph Entangled," "Whitewashing Julia," etc. BACKHAUS AND ELLA RUSSELL AT THE PIER PAVILION. One of the most interesting of the numerous concerts at the Pier Pavilion, LIandudno, this season is the re appearance, on Wednesday, August 19th, of Baekhaus, the famous pianist, and Madame Ella Russell, the world-renowned prima donna. Both are so well-known that they need no introduction. Madame Ella Russell holds a prominent place amongst the greatesi operatic singers of our time. In every branch of her art—opera, oratorio, or the concert platform —she is equally delightful, and her appearance is always keenly appreciated. Backhaus, although still quite a young man, has made for himself a reputation as a pianist that is second to none. Baekhaus has just re- turned from the Continent. He has returned to England specially for this concert, and this will probably be his last appearance in Llandudno before his two yeara* tour round the world. There can be little doubt these two favourite artistes will attract an enormous audience, and early application for seats should be mado to avoid disappointment.
A CHARGE OF STEALING APPLES AT OLD COLWYN. AN AMUSING CASE. A ten-year-old lad named Thomas Henry P erce, eon c<f John Henry Pieoo, .of Old Col- wvn. was sui-.iiii-ic-ned before Mr Kneeshaw and other magistrates at Col.wyn Bay 4on Saturday for stealing' apples from the garden of Mr J. Wood, of Maesycoed, Old Colwyn, a cro-se- ummons being i &suod against Thomas Davies, Mr Wood's gardener, for assaulting the child. Mr E. A. Cnabbe was for the defendant, whoso father pleaded not guiity on his behalf, while the prosecutor, Mr J. Wood, of Maes-y- Coed. was represented by Mr Franc s IN u,nn. Thomas Daviets, a gardener eiinnoyea by tr* Wood, was the principal witness for the prose- cution, and he, in turn, was charged by the ac- cused boy's father w'th having assaulted a.nd beaten the boy. Davies stated that, hcar.g boy¡, in conversation, he concealed hiiiiself, and saw the defendant creep through a small gap in the hedge, proceed to one of the best-fruited dwarf apple trees, fill his pocket with apples, and break off two branches loaded wth applet, with wYch he returned towards the hedge. At the dramahc moment Davies revealed himself, caDtured the offender, and conducted him to the owner of the g'arcjen. The other boys escaped. In reply to Mr Crabbe, the witness said he d:d not assault or hurt the lad in any way. Mr Crabbe: And do you recognise this boy as the one in Question? Witness: Oh. yet?. Mr Grabbe: Put him on the table, inspector. Let Uq see this roaring thief (laughter). Mr Nunn: We don't say he roars (renewed laughter). The lad was broug-ht forward, hi) head just reaching- the level of the solicitor's table. Continuing, witness said that when the boy had filled h.s pockets with apples he cut some branch- es loaded with apples, and was on the point of beariner them off when witness "surprised" him. He was taken to Mr Wood, but he exhibited no signs of fn.ght, neither did he cry at any time. Witness had called on the lad's mother in the evening, and wai3 assured by her that the boy was "a res'ular little She stated that she had thrashed him, and did not know what to do with him. Later in the evening she had 'invited witness to a glass of beer at the Plough Hotel, but, he had refused to enter the house with her. She urged, hiim to be as lenient aø possible with tho bov. Bv Mr Crabbe: The apple trees were of the "dwarf bush" and "pyramid" variety. Mr Crabbe: You have been a boy yourself?— Yee, some time (laughter). And you have stcle-n apples, I dare say?—I don't remember doing so. Mr Crabbe: Then you mui-t have been a very ifunn • boy. I have done so many times when a. bov (laughter). Mr Nunn: I have never düne so—possibly be. cause I was brought up dn London. Mr Cra.bbe: If vou had lived in the country vou would have done so iniany times (renewed lauarhter). Mr Wood also gave evidence. Mr Crabbe (to Mr Wood): Were 7ou ever a Mr Wood: Like yourself (laughter). And did you never steal apples?—I never did. M r Nunn: There are four of us "funny" then (lauerhter) Mr Crabbe: I must confers that I have, many a tilne (laughter). The advocate for the defence stated that all the bov took were windfalls on the ground. His captor, it was alleged, cuffed him soundly on the head and gave him a 1ick at parting. The Chairman suggested that the charge cf assault should be withdrawn. The defendant's father obiected, unlcns the charge of theft was dismissed. He was reminded that he could not make a bargain of that kind with the Bejich. Under his solictor's advice he agreed to with- draw the ease ag'ainst Davies, and the Bench then decided to dismiss the charge of theft on the pavment of 7g costs. The Chairman po'.nted out tihat the court imight have punished the parents for this boy's crime. That, feature or t:he ilaw ought to bo made known in the district. ABSENCE FROM CRIME. Mr Kneeshaw congratulated the (inhabitants of Colwyn Ba.v upon the ab-ence of crime and offences in the district, whi *'ch was ,now full of visitors, and Mr Nunn, on behalf of the adver cates. welcomed the chairman on his return to the bench.

It was stated that the boys resided with their grandmother, who also was a pauper. Mr Wm. Thomas said that there was nobody interesting himself in the boys. The Clerk said that relief could not be al- lowed to the boys as they were over the age. Mr Llewelyn: They should go to Iook for work like others had to do. It was resolved to notify the grandmother that the relief would be stopped. Mr W. W. Morris: It would be rather hard to stop the relief. The boys are very intelli- gent. Mr Llewelyn But they ought to be treated like other children.

SAD DROWNING FATALITY AT RHOS. BATHING !N A DANGEROUS SPOT. The dangers of bathing on portions of the shore other than those appointed for the pur- pose was further evidenced on Tuesday mid-day, when Tom Trueman, of the Port Sunlight Soap Works, was drowned at a spot on the west side of the Rhos pier, Rhos-on-Sea. It transpires that Trueman and six other com- panions, who were camping in the ruins of Bryn Euryn, went to bathe at the spot mentioned, which is between the Rhos pier and the ancient fishing weir. At the time there was a strong wind blowing, and a heavy sea running and con- sequently it is exceptionally risky to enfer the water, particularly having regard for the coss currents and under currents common at this point. The tide at the time had turned about an hour. Trueman had been in the water about five minutes when it was seen that he was in diffi- culties. One friend, Harry Gordon, made a gal- lani attempt to reach him, but he disappeared. An old gentleman also divested himself of his clothing and went to the rescue, but failed to reach the unfortunate man, and both he and Gordon were much exhausted when they got back to the shore. The body was recovered later, and taken to the mortuary at Colwyn Bay, to await an inquest. It was almost at the same spot that two girls were drowned some time ago, and it is extra- ordinary ihat in spite of these and other warn- ings people persist in bathing in the vicinity.
BANK HOLIDAY OVER- LOADS. THE "RHOtS COLWYN" CAPTAIN FINED. While the enormous crowds which thronged the Liverpool landing stage, on Bank Holiday, were struggling to get on to the ferry steamers and pleasure boats which came alongside, police offi- cers were engaged in counting the number of passengers going on, or coming off the vessels, with a view to detecting any instance of over- crowding. As the result of these observations, two sum- monses were heard by Mr Stewart, at the City Police Court. One was against John Tennant, the captain of the "Rhos-Colwyn." The regis- tered capacity of the vessel is 529, and the num- ber counted as they landed at the landing stage at half-past eight in the evening was 562, an ex- cess of 32. Nobody appeared for the defence, but Mr Clay- ton, who prosecuted for the police, said that a letter had been received stating that the number taken out to Llandudno was below the registered capacity. Coming back, a lot of people must have got on board who had not got tickets. A fine of £ 5 and costs was imposed.

BURNING FATALITY AT LLANDUDNO. THE INQUEST. Mr Pentir Williams, coroner for North Carnar- vonshire, held an inquest, on Wednesday after- noon, touching the death of Mrs Blanche Jones, 39, Madoc-street, Llandudno, who died on Tues- day night, as the result of a burning accident, caused by the bursting of a lamp. LJeceased, who was 64 years of age, was in the habit, according to tho evidence of her adopted son, Rd. Thomas Jones, of sleeping on a sofa during the past fourteen years with a lamp on the chest of drawers at the foot. About 5.30 on Tuesday morning, he heard screams, and upon rushing downstairs, he found the deceased in flames. The lamp was an ordinary one, with a glass oil vessel. He extinguished the flames by wrapping his coat around the woman. One of the visitors staying in the house-Mr Short—came to Jones' assistance, and Mrs Jones told him that the lamp burst.. Shortly afterwards, she became unconscious, and remained so until about mid- night, when she expired. The jury returned a verdict of "Accidental death," and added a rider, deprecating the use of lamps with glass oil containers.
I THE TREFRIW WELLS. l Visitors and patients recommended by doctors to take the Waters at this historic and pictur- esque North Wales Chalybeate Spa, express their great appreciation of the commodious new Pump- room and complete new suite of Baths which have recently been erected. They are the rich- est iron waters known, viz., 381 grains Proto- sulphate of iron to the gallon, and are, and have been for generations, prescribed by many eminent physicians for Antemia, Indigestion, Rheumatism, Sciatica, Nervous Debility, etc., with most bene- ficial results. The Waters are also supplied in perfectly natural Spa condition, in* boxes contain- ing one dozen two-doze bottles, at 3s 6d per box, from Chemists, or 3s 9d post paid from the Wells. During the last two or three months hundreds of patients have taken the Waters and Baths, and many very remarkable cures have resulted from a course of the treatment, both when taken at home and at the Wells.
