(Continuation from 4th Page.} HUNTING. (All Rights Reserved.) ANGLESEY HARRIERS. The meet on Saturday was at Maenaddíwyn, I in a downpour of rain, and only a small field turned up. Those who stayed at home were best off, as everyone out was drenched to the skin, and very little sport was had. The first hare was chopped on Mynydd Bodafon, but another was found again in the same field, and ran on by Glyn down to the keeper's house, through the hemp field of Bodafon into the road, along which it ran close to Maen Farm, turning from the road to the blacksmith's shop, where she was turned back by people standing on the road- way. The hare now running down wind hounds could only make small progress, and she was given up. Another hare was found, and ran up over the mountain, but hounds could do nothing with her with the rain coming down in torrents, so the order was given for homo. ATEREXES.
FLINT AND DEKBEGH HOUNDS. These hounds met on Wednesday at Nannerch Station, amongst those out being Mr Lane, the Misses Bibby, Captain Salsbury, M.r Alletson, and Mr Davies Cooke, who was driving, owing to an accident he met with the day hounds met at Bodelwyddan. The first draw was Fen-y-Clodd.iau, when hounds found a brace, and soon ran one to ground in cover, and it. was left. Hounds were then taken on to Pen-y-Bryn, but it was tenantless. Trotting on to Penbedw war- ren, they found at once, and their quarry out at the top end in the direction of Glanywern, but turning sharply to the right towards Nan- nerch Station, thence across the main line, and over the Mo'd and Chester road, on to Maes Cvffin, where it got to ground, after a good hunt of about an hour. Hounds kept their fixture on Saturday at Rhuddlan, a good field being out, including Mr Conwy Bell, Miss Howard, Colonel Howard, Mr Hughes, Mr H. Evam, Captain Salsbury, Mr Osborne, Mr Lane, the Misses Bibby (4), Mr II. Bibby, Mr R. Birch, Major Birch, Colonel and Miss Mcsham, and several others. Hounds first drew Boclrhyddan young plantation, finding one fox, and running him round the cover several times, he tried hard to get away, but was head- ed in every direction, and eventually got away through the pleasure grounds of the hall, and took a nice line of country, hounds running in to him at the foot of tho big mountain near Dyserth, after a good run of 35 minutes. Hounds were taken back to Cottage wood, and finding at onc-e they got away on good terms with their fox, setting his track for Rhuddlan, turning sharply to the left, and straight through Bod- rhyddan Park. taking nearly the same line of country as the first fox, but bearing to the right up to Cwm big wood, through which it passed over tho hill to ground in the inn in earth. SPORTSMAN.
SIR WATKIN WYNN'S HOUNDS. These hounds provided' a big field with a first- fcl&os day's sport on Saturday. The meet was at BtougrullJ Toll Bar. A fox found at Sand- ford cover was hunted very fast across to Clo- verley plantation, and killed close to the. gas- works. Hounds then went to Cloverley Withy Beds, and finding, ran fast round to the Twem- lows and lost. From Cloverley Big Wood an- other fox ran through Cloverley Gorse, right- handed through Stokes' Wood, and out in the direction of Wilkesley, where he was lost in the Cheshire country. Ash Withy Bed held one, which piloted the field across to Wilkesley, left- handed, leaving the Walk Mill to the left, away s past the Wrenbury Lodge of Comberinere Park, straight out to the yew tree on the Wrenbury- road, across to Tom Poole's cover, and right- handed as if for the Yelde; he was making in the direction of Wrenbury Moss, when, as it was getting dark, and hounds were going straight away from home, they were stopped after a very fine hunt of nearly an hour and a half. Colonel C. Rivers Bulkeley, C.B., was in command, in the absence of Sir Watkin, and he was accompanied by Miss Bulkeley. The field included Lord and Lady Hugh Grosvenor, Lord Gerald Grosvenor, Lord Harris, the Hon. Misses Douglas-Pennant, the Hon. Algernon Parker, Baron Trutzschler, Colonel Cholmondeley, Cap- tain Rankin, Captain and Mrs Lambert, Mr C. T. and Miss Dugdale, Mr F. Dugdale, Mr Gerald Dugdale, Mr W. Dugdale, Mr W.

FOOTBALL, INTER-COLLEGIATE MATCH AT BANGOR. UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF NORTH WALES v. NORMAL COLLEGE. AN UNFINISHED GAME. (By "Spectator.") U.C.N.W 1 Normal College 0 c Another of the encounters which create con- siderable excitement and interest in oolle-giate circlea of Bangor was played on Saturday after- noon in wretched weather, on the Baiig'or Town Ground, wihen the U.C.N.W. teaml met the Normal College eleven, the referee being Mr E Lloyd Williams. The following turned out for their respective sidos:- U.C.N.W.: Arnold; D. S. Owen and Brock; Bannister, Don Rowlands, and Wright; T. E. Jones, Matthews, C. Ë. Thomas, Claude Davies, and Arthur Williams. Normal College: Evan Davies; Charley Row- lands and Dick Williams; Fergusson, A. Cross, and Hebor Griffiths; Blacklock, T. Evans, Bert. Davies, Raine, and T. Hamer. With all the heavy rains experienced through the week, and which continued all day Satur- day tho turf had been reduced to a veritable quagmire, and the strong' wind which swept across the field added greatly to the unpleasant- ness of tih-e day. But, in spite of all this, a very strong contingent of 'Varsity students—■ male a.nd female—and Normal students assem- bled. When the Normalitcs appeared they were greeted with shouts of "Buck up 1 Normals 1" and the 'Varsity squad had a "yell." C. E. Thomas, the 'Varsity pivot, opened play with only ten men on the field to face eleven Normalites, D. S Owen's arrival having been delayed. Mathews received the pass from Thomas, and ran along, but Deck Williams robbed him, and the sphere travelled to the other end, where Brock sent to touch. From the throw-in Arthur Williams passed to the centre, and Charley Rowlands clcarrsd another dangerous rush. Blacklock and T. Davies next sprang into prominence by eluding Wright, who, however, stopped the rush later on. Heber Griffiths received and passed to the right wing. This movement was again doomed to failure for Wright nipped in and managed to clear the leather to C. E. Thomas. "Towscr" started a run, and passed a shade beyond Arthur Wil- liams reach, the ball eventually going to touch- From the throw-in Heber passed in the direc- tion of Raine and Hamer, when Bannister ef- fected a feeble olearance, and allowed Hamer a.n opening, but Brock intervened and sent to touch. D. S. Owen's appearance at this stage was greeted with oboetrs. The throw-in fa- voured the Normals, and Evans directed a good shot at goal, but missed by a few inches. Towser agarin received the ball, and sprinted forward and punted, but as the sphere had become heavy and slippy, his shot went wide. Cross, the Nor- mals' centre-half, played a determined game, and for a time seemed to be here, there, and everywhere. The Normalitcs' front line forced matters, and pushed on in the direction of Ar- nold, but D. S. Owen cleared, and Mathews took up the running, and was neatly robbed by Cross. Receiving the ball from Cross's clearance Don Rowlands caused some enthusiasm by his suc- cessful dribbling of four or five opponents, and he passed to Mathews, who directed a splendid shot, which deserved better fate. The ball bounced into play, and another shot was direct. ed at the top of Evan Davies' stronghold, which he saved at the expense of & corner. Bert Da- vies, with the ball at his toes, commenced a deadly rush, but D. S. Owen stopped his pro- gress in smart style and punted forward. Heber Griffiths returned the leather and Raine se- cured, but Don caused him to kiss—not the dust, but—mud. Towser received the globe, and, ac- companied by Mathews, ran along, but they had not counted on Dick Williams, who neatly in- tervened, and sent the leather to the 'Varsity quarters. Blacklock made on effort for a pot at goal, but as the sphere and ground were so very slippy, he missed his kick, and Wright esnt to touch. Raine gaining possession tried his luck at scoring, but Arnold saved well. Evans, however, caught the ball, and centred, when Bannhter was rendered hors-de-combat through a collision with Ilamer, but he resumed play. In a few minutes Blacklock tested Arnold with a hot shot, which he safely negotiated. Charley Rowlands kicked feebly, and Towser having se- cured the ball, miskicked when in good position. THE ONLY GOAL. Towser, however, was immediately on the ball, and passed to Arthur, who again centred, and the ball bobbed about just before the goal, and in his excitement a Normal defender handled within the dreaded area. Arthur Williams took the penalty kick, and delivered a crusher, which Davies unsuccessfully attempted to hold, and Williams thus scored the only goal of the match. Inspired by their success, the 'Varsity players pressed hard, and a few minutes later saw Mathews experiencing very hard lines. Brock and Don played hard now, and the sphere was again being directed towards the Normal cita- del, and Bannister punted from about the middle of the field a fine shot, which Davies gathered up, and kicked to Raine, and the 'Varsity pivot forced a fruitless corner off Rowlands- Wright just at the critical moment missed his kick, and let in Evans, but he quickly retrieved his mis- take, and sent the attacking line back. Fer- gusson, however, managed to kick towards Ar- nold, who saved at the expense of a corner. Hamer's corner kick was headed to the corner flag by D. S. Owen. Tho second corner was safely cleared, and Mathews ran along, but Dick Williams robbed 111:m, and sent to Hamer, who was met by D. S. Owen, and the ball was sent to touch. Another attack by wie 'Varsity ended in Evan Davies running out and kicking clear, but he had hardly reached Ills charge when Bannister directed another splendid shot, which nearly caused the downfall of the Normal cita- del. Mathews sent in a rasping shot, which banged against the cross-bar, and rebounded into play. Arthur met, but in his anxiety kicked wide. Wie Normals were now very hard pressed, but managed to keep tihe 'Varsity players well at bay. Half-time was soon called, tho soore reading: U.CVJ7.W. 1, Normal 0. The r,"rri still kept on pouring when the second half opened. The Normalites soon made their presence felt, and some erratic shooting' on the part of the 'Varsity defenders gave them an opening. After some ten minutes' play, both ends being visited in turns, the game was abandoned owing to the rain.
A MERITED WIN BY TIIE 'VARSITY. 'Varsity 6 Normals 1 I This match, which was a second edition of the abandoned game an Saturday, was played on Wednesday in dull weather. The teams we,r-e:- Normal College Evan Davies Charley Row- lands and Dick Williams; Fergusson, A. Cross, and Heber Griffiths; Blacklock, T. Evans, Bert Davie. Raine, and T Hamer. U.C.N.W.: Arnold: D. S, Owen and W. J. Jones; Bannister, Don Rowlads, and Wright; T. E. Jones, Matthews, C. E. rlhQmas, Claude Davies, and Arthur Williams. Referee: Mr E. Lloyd Williams. The opening stages rather favoured the Nor- malites, whose forwards displayed pretty com- bination, which, however, could not get them past "D. S." and "W. J." Don Rowlands tried his luck with a mighty punt, which went over. The Normal outside right initiated a pretty passing movement, which ended in Bert Davies dropping an elevated shot in the direc- tion of the^ arsity gv>al, and to the consterna- tion of the 'Varsity supporters Arnold misjudged the ball, which, however, bounced over the bar— a narrow squeak. At the other end Arthur Wil- liams, though taken at a disadvantage, all but scored, Dick Williams making a timely clear- ance. Bannister and one of the Normal halves tested tneir respective weights without either claiming advantage. The game was of an even character, but the 'Varsity should have scored. Ag'ain the Normalites advanced in First League style, and Bert Davies from long range drove in a grounder, and taking no risks," Arnold dropped on his knees a.nd cleared in the nick of time. A bad clearance by Dick Williams let in tho 'Varsity forwards, who, however, found Evan Davies on the qui vivc. When the custodian had left the Normal goal, Cross clear- ed just on the goal line with his head—how he NORMALITES SOORE. did it is a mystery! T. Evans was next seen forcing his way through the 'Varsity Ziefeiice, and he sent in a slow shot which to all appear- ances waa 'g'oing out, but it struck the far post and glanced into goal, several forwards dashing up to put the finishing touch. In less than a minute Claude Davies, who had been playing erratically, equalised- Half-time: U.C.N.W. 1, Normal College 1. The first incident of note in the second half was a pot at the 'Varsity goal by Bert Davies, and directly afterwards Arthur Williams worked his way up the field, but finished up wildly. The 'Varsity forwards were now playing for all they were worth, penning' the Normalites in their own quarters, and Evan Davies did some mighty things between the sticks. In trying to send the ball down the field Hamer shot the ball behind his own goal, and actually blushed. A brilliant run was made by T. E. Jones, who with two opponente trying to upset him, crashed in a terrific shot. Evan Davies managed to catch it, and that's all, for Towser ran up, and quickly had the 00.11 in the net, but .it was T. E. Jones' goal Hereabouts Dick Williams put in some splendid work for the Normalites, and a pass from him enabled Bert Davies to almost equalise. Arthur WiiHams was getting into his stride with a ven- geance, whipping across several brilliant centres, and Don Rowlands from a corner kick, with tho forcing of which Davies had something to do, put in No. 3. Directly afterwards Claude Davies gave Evan Davies a warm handful, and Matthews a second or two later, after dodging lIeber sent in a shot which would have beaten nine out of ten custodians. Bannister scored the fourth goal for the 'Varsity with a slow ladylike kick The game was now robbed of a good deal of its interest, the Nor- malites evidently thinking that a win was an impossibility. Towser headed the fifth goal for the 'Varsity. In the last few minutes the Nor- malites appeared to gam fresh courage TO- look bring particularly bllsy on tho' rig! Claude Davies registered the sixth goal for the Varsity, but it should have been saved Final: 'Varsity 6, Normals 1.
„ss, woSd isrsn until the finish the Normalites fell to r.S y appeared to have exhausted all their* snare energy in the opening half, when they really showed up well, and afterwards they were a beaten team, though 6--1 rather exaggerates the superiority of the winners. b Varsity played a bustliii. sort of game, and they did not spare their weight. The best de- partment was the full-back, although the halves were quite up to form. Of the forwards, Claude Davies and Arthur Williams did not get into their stride until the second half. Matthews had to stand,a good deal of knocking about, but he stood it quite cheerfully. • • » Several of the Normal men played wildly, with the result that they could not "stay" the match. Although six goals look formidable, the custodian did not do at all badly. The centre-forward also sent in a number of neat shots, and the outside right was a plucky player. After the match the students of the two col- leges fraternised and marched up High-street, making a stop near the Town Clock, where "D.S. the skipper of the 'Varsity team, who had been hoisted up a lamp, was compelled to make a speech. He remarked that the crowd represented mixed feelings—the 'Varsity men were joyous and the Normal men despondent, whereupon the Normal students yelled "Wrong again." "D.S." went on to eulogise his team, and commiserated with his opponents, on behalf. of whom Cross responded. « Between the students of the 'Varsity and the St. Mary's College there were about a hundred lady students on the ground, and they were hugely amused at the involuntary gymnastic feats of the players.

CONWAY TOWN COUNCIL. PROPOSED FREE ADMISSION TO THE CASTLE. GAS FOR LLANDUDNO JUNCTION. DEGANWY AND THE TRAMS. ,The monthly meeting of the Conway Town Council was held on Wednesday, the Mayor, Dr. M J. Morgan, J.P., presiding, and the other members present were: Aldermen Dr. R. A. Prichard, J.P., Edward Roberts, A. Nether- wood, W. M. Sever, Councillors James Porter, Hugh Owen, John Williams A. J. Oldman, Fred. J. Jones, Dr. Wm. Carter, Robert Jones, Edward Jones, Henry Jones, J. E. Conway Jones, and Mr Thornton Jones (solicitor to tho Council), together with the clerk (Mr T. E. Parry), the surveyor (Mr F. A. Delamotte), the accountant (Mr Hugh Parry), the collector (Mr T. M. Jones), the gas manager (Mr Dickson), and other officials CONDOLENCE. Upon the motion of the Mayor, a vote of con- dolence was passed with Mr A. J. Oldman in his berc-avemeait in the death of his father. Mr Oldman briefly acknowledged. THE BANDMASTER'S APPOINTMENT. The Special Band Qpnimittee reported that they had appointed Mr David Williams, of Aberdarc, to be bandmaster, inspector of hawk- ers, etc- Aklürman Edward Roberts, as a member of the committee, said that he had not voted at the meeting, and he desired to Snow whether the committee had power to vote upon the subject. The Mayor replied that all present at the meeting, with the exception of Alderman Ed- ward Roberts, had voted. The Council referred the matter to the committee, with power to act. Mr James Porter asked whether the commit- tee considered the>, gentleman appointed capable of performing' the other duties connected with the appointment, as well as those of bandmas- ter. Mr Robert Jones replied in tihe affirmative, and the minutes of the committee were then confirmed. THE ISOLATION HOSPITAL. Alderman Dr. Priohard asked what was the position with regard to the proposed isolation hospital. The Clerk replied that the Authority wou'd be prepared to purchase the site next week. Dr. Prichard then gave notice that he would move at the next meeting that the borough sur- veyor be requjested to preparo a return of all the milk sellers in the district. He thought that the surveyor should present a report to the Council each month of the work performed by him, including the different places inspected, etc. PROPOSED FREE ADMISSION TO THE CASTLE A'derman A. Nethcrwood moved the following resolution:—"That the timo has now arrived when the Casile should be thrown open free to the ratepayers and their families, with fair le- striotiens to avoid any misusagc, of the liberty, and that the Council refer the matter to a, corn- miittoo to consider w.ays a,nd means." Ir support of his motion, Alderman Nether- wood said that the Castle had been left to the people of Conway for their enjoyment, upon certain conditions. From time to time ratepayers had been complaining to him "that they had to pay for seeing their own Castle." lie be- lieved a great many of the burgesses did not avail themselves of the opportunity of visiting the castle tccaLISO they had to pay for doing so. He aLo believed that with proper restric- tions it would 00 a great boon to the people residing in the borough to be able to visit the castle without paying for admission. He, how- ever, did not wamt to see the Castle open, every day throughout the year It was closed on Sun- days now, and he was in favour of it remaining so on Sundays. The Castlo was at times used for special events such as bazaars, etc., by churches and chapels for raising money towards the different places of worship. He, therefore, did not wish his motion to interfere with such objects of) those, but if the matter was referred to a committee, all such details could be ar- ranged. Alderman Dr. Prichard pointed out that the Castle was at present open for any burgess to enter within without paying- b The Clerk said that the constable always granted free admission to a.nyone who applied. Alderman Netherwood did not think the rate- payers should be put to the trouble of running after the constable every time they wanted to go to the Castle. Mr Henry Jones seconded the motion. Mr A. J. Oldman moved an amendment to the effect that the Council refer the matter to the Highway Committee without pledging itself to any principle at present. Mr Edward Jones seconded the amendment. Alderman Edward Roberts failed to see any- thing1 wrong in making a small charge for ad- mission into the historic building. Should free admission be adopted he could not see how they wore to draw the line. If the ratepayers of Conway wanted to go to the Castle he" hardly thbught they would grumble at paying two- pence or threepence. If the Castle was to be thrown open to everybody the Council would have to provide a man or two to look after it. If a poor m ri could afford the time to go and sit in the Castle, surely no could afford to pay the small charge for admission. What little revenue they derived from the Castle at pre- sent could be easily spent by the Council. At almost every Council meeting they were talking' about loans for something or oth2.r (laughter). He certainly would not like to see their fine old Castle thrown open to everyone. Mr Robert Jones thought that the remarks of Alderman Edward Roberts were uncalled for. Mr Hugh Owen thought the matter should be deferred until tho improved entrance to the Castle had been completed. Alderman Netherwoo-d said that his proposal was to thrown the Castle open to ratepayers. The revenue derived from the ratepayers, he believed, only amounted to about 93 a year. He lid not wish the Castle to ba open indis- criminately. It was eventually a.greed to re far the matter to a committee in its entirety without at present adopting the principle. LLANDUDNO WATER MAIN EXTENSION. Councillor Henry Jones and the borough sur- veyor were appointed to represent the Council at the Local Government Board inquiry to be held at Llandudno on December 11th, respect- ing the water main extension. DEGANWY TRAMS. A communication was read from the Llandudno and District Tramway Company, stating that they were unable to make a statement regarding tho extension of the tram line from Llandudno to Deganwy. Mr A. J. Oldman proposed that the letter be referred to a committee- Alderman Netherwood said the time would be well spent if the Council discussed the matter that day. The Conway Council never laid a single obstacle to the company at the outset, whilst Llandudno and Colwyn Bay .waae various ob- jections. It behoved them to do all in their f power to get the company to complete the par- tioular part of the section as far as Deganwy. Mr Edward Jones seconded Mr Oldman's motion that the matter be referred to a com- mittee. Upon the proposition of Mr Henry Jones, seconded by Mr John Williams, it was decided to refer the matter to a committee, consisting of the whole Council. THE GAS QUESTION. Upon the proposition of Alderman Dr. R. A. Prichard, seconded by Alderman Edward Ro- berts, the following resolution was carried una- nimously :—"That it is expedient to promote, and the Council doth hereby sanction and autho- rise the promotion in the next session of Parlia- ment of a Bill for the purpose of empowering the Corporation to supply gas outside the limits of gas supply, so as to include the parishes of Llaxgwstemn and Lleohwedd respectively in the county cf Carnarvon or portions thereof, and to borrow further monies, and for other purposes in connection with the gas undertaking, and that costs a.nd expanses in relation to the pro- motion of the said Bill be charged upon and paid out of tne district fund and general dis- trict rate or the public funds and rates under the control of the Council, a.s the Bill may pro- vide and Parliament sanctron." The area men- iioned includes Llandudno Junction.
RHOS-ON-SEA PIER. A QUESTION IN PARLIAMENT. Mr M'Arthur, M.P., asked the President of the Board of Trade, in the House of Commons, whether, in view of the recent legal decision that the Rhos-on-Sea pier is an unauthorised structure, free from all Board of Trade obligations and re- strictions, it is the intention of the Board to take any action with respect to the pier. Mr Churchill, by printed answer, says ;-The judgment 01 the Court of Annea.1 in the case to which the hon. member refers was only given on the 18th tilt., and I am not disposed to take any action in the matter until the owner of the pier has had a reasonable time to consider his posi- tion. I understand that it is possible that he may seek for Parliamentary sanction in respect of the undertaking next season.
J ——— LIBERALISM IN FLINT- SHIRE. MEETING AT CONNAH'S QUAY. A large and enthusiastic meeting was held on Monday night in the Presbyterian Chape], Connah's Quay, under the chairmanship of Mr W. Renoy, J.P. A resolution denouncing the action of the House of Lords in rejecting the Licensing Bill was moved by the Rev. I. James, and seconded by the Rev. G. Daniel. Mr G. C. Rees, in supporting, urged the audi- ence not to relax their efforts. The body of the Bill, he stated, was killed in a drawing-room, on Tuesday, and buried in the House of Lords, on Friday, but the spirit was active and ahve, and he prophesied a certain and glorious resur- rection. After dealing with the Bill, and touch- ing upon high licences, he expressed a wish for a. year of Mr Gladstone; for £ f man who could and who would carry the torch of enthusiasm from nort.il to south and east to west, and collect in his one great voice the voices of the people and the nation, for in truth on this question of temperance reform the voice of the people was the voice of God. Mr William George, Criceieth, asked all mode- rate drinkers to a.bstam until the Bill or a similar Bill was passed, for unless they did they were I helping rhe trade" to fight the nation. He ex- pressed his regret at the absence of certain Welsh bish ops from the division, and declared that, whether the appeal to the country came soon or can. o later, the House of Commons must be, in fact as well as in intention, the predomi- nant House. Votes of thanks terminated the meeting, after the resolution had beon carried unanimously.

One of the most enj<ab!e events of the rear at Llandudno is Miss Margaret Thomas' annual benefit concert which was held at, the Town Hall, to-day week. Miss Thomas had engaged a number of talented artistes for the cccasion, and a most attractive programme was presented. There was a fairly large audience present when the programme was opened with a violin and piano duett, "Sonatine" kdvorak) bv Mr Alfred Ross and Miss M. Thomas, the item being rendered in an exquisite manner. Mr George Baker sang a couple of songs, "Der Wanderer" (Schubert), and "Ich groIle nicht" (Schumann), for which he was warmly ap- plauded. An interesting item was a duett, (vio- lincello and h.arp) by Mr J Walton and Master Bernard Walton, after which Mr Alfred Ross contributed a delightfully played violin solo, ''Rhapsodic Piemontesse" (Sinigaglia). Mr Ross, Mr Walton, and Miss M. Thomas were loudly applauded for their interpretation of Mendelssohn's trio "D Minor," violin, violin- cello, and pianoforte. Miss Margaret Thomas opened the second por- tion of the .programme with a delightfully played pianoforte volo "Andante and Rondo Capric- ciato" (Mendelssohn). Mr George Baker fol- lowed with three songs, "A voice by the cedar tree," Birds in the high hall garden," and i.bl) ever popular- "Come into the harden, Maud,' which, as usual, earned a loud vation. A harp solo, "The Harmonious Blacksmith" (Han- del) bjy Master Bernard Walton, proved a m \it enjoyable item, after which Mr George Ba"t.l. captivated the audience with his rendering of two songs, "Mother O'Mine" (F. E. Tours) ai,d "King Charles" (Mr V. White). The po- gra.mme terminated with Marschener'a trio "Romanze," by Mr Ross, Mr Walton, and Miss Margaret Thomas.
