MACHYNLLETH NOTES. Mr Northey, one of the staff at the Machynlleth Brauch of the Loudon and Provincial Bank, had a hearty send-off this week ou his promotien to the Bank at Rhyl. Mr Northey was always a keen supporter of football aud an active member of the Minstrel Troupe here. How long will those responsible allow the stone slabs to remain in Maengwyu-street to the danger of the public ? The staff and children of the Board Schools are busily preparing on every available evening for their annual entertainment held at the Town Hall on March lst, St David's Day. It is universally acknowledged from the parents' poinr, of view that this entertainment is their treat of the season, j The organising and training necessary for a successful concert of the kind undoubtedly means weeks of patient and hard teaching. The children thoroughly enjoy not only the entertainment but the important preparations. How very interesting it i3 to be sure to observe them coming and going from school already weeks before their great day, and how they vie with each other in reciting or singing their part of the programme. There is no question that this entertainment institution is a great acquisition in favour of these schools, for the parents are afforded such ample proof of the un- excelled merits of all concerned. Mr Ashton, the headmaster, no doubt again this year will receive the hearty co-operation of botn parents and pupils in making the annual St David's Day Board School entertainment a better success than ever. Last year promoters of a would-be Cycling Club at Machynlleth were Jaw in the season before moving in the matter and not-hiug came of it. A gentle reminder to cycling enthusiasts is not out of place now. If a Cycling Club is worth having there is no time to be Just, in calling a meeting, for in a few months we shall have the cuckoo here again. The Machynlleth troupe of minstrels, by far the best thing of the kind attempted in the town, will give its second of a series of entertainments oil Monday, this time at Corris. Theniggershave introduced several additional items since tneir first appearance in public, at the Town Halt, Mach- ynlleth, a few weeks ago when the proceeds were given to the great cause of the bereaved widows aud orphans. In particular amongst the treats in store for the good Oorrisians is a parody on Kruger's Xmas Party. The music is composed by Mr Robert Edwards, Oak Ville, of this town, at present master of the Rhosdir National School, near Aberystwyth. Mr Edwards is fast making himself well known and popular by his musical compositions. It is to be hoped that his brother, Mr ilarri Edwards, who has a good baritone voice awl b no means scanty knowieuge of mtisic turn suit, be at his best in the rendering of the above. Mr Robert Edwards has been honoured several times hy his composi- tions appearing in the musical page of the Weekly Mail (S. Wales). In a very keen competition con- ducted by the above paper some weeks ago, when a silver medal was the coveted prize, Mr Edwards received the award with highest distinctions.
