Conway Wesleyan Centenary. To commemorate the centenary of the establishing of the Welsh Wes- leyan cause at Conway, Friday was devoted to the holding of special services at the Tabernacle Chapel. In the afternoon the children attending Tabernacle and Preswylfa Churcht s were entertained to tea, and afterwards members and congregations of both churches were likewise entertained. A special service for children was held at the Tabernacle. In the evening a public meeting, presided over by County-Alderman Edward Jones, was held, when addresses were delivered by the Revs Hugh Jones iBangor), F. E. Jones (Colwyn Bay), D. A. Richards (Llandudno), J. Wesley Hughes (Chester), the Pastor, Dr Llugwy Owen, M.A. (C.M.), W. Edwards (Baptist), and T. Gwynedd Roberts (C.M., Conway). G.F.S.—The Llandudno and Conway Branch of I the Girl's Friendly Society, of which Mrs Swinford Wood is the president, held their annual festival at Conway on Saturday. The members attended the parish church in the after- noon, and' listened to impressive addresses delivered by the Rev. Canon Fairchild, of Bangor, and the Rev. Robert Jones, rector of Gyffin. Later on they partook of tea at the girls' schoolroom, the catering being splendidly carried out by Mr F. J. Jones, of Bangor-road. At a sale of work, conducted afterwards by Miss Jennie Williams, High-street, and Miss Rees and Miss Allan, Victoria-terrace, the sum of £5 was realised in -aid of the funds. Miss Owen, Miss Olive Blackwell, Miss Gwladys Williams, and Miss Alice Page also rendered signal services in their work in connection with the entertainment which was held in the evening. Death of Mr R. W. Nicholson.-On Tuesday morning, after a comparatively short illness, Mr R. W. Nicholson, of the Black Horse Inn, Castle-street, passed away, leaving a widow and two daughters-Mrs Edwards, of Nantlle, and Mrs Gillies, of the Black Horse-to mourn their loss. Mr Nicholson, who was a north country- man, was originally engaged in Messrs Dicksons' Nurseries at Chester. After some years' experi- ence in English gardens, he took up the position of head gardener to Mr Harry Clegg, at Angle- sey. Eventually he left there for Bodlondeb, Conway, and he remained in the service of his Worship the Mayor as head gardener for some years. Then he gave up ardening and took charge of the Blue Bell Hotel, a place of busi- ness, which he controlled until a few months ago, when he retired' and took up his residence with his daughter at the Black Horse, Castle- street, where he died. Deceased was very high- ly respected, and his death will be mourned by a large circle of friends whom he had met in the horticultural world: in his position as judge and exhibitor.
