The Pastoral Bazaar at Rhos. Second Day's Proceedings. Financial Result. ON Thursday afternoon, at two o'clock, the picturesque old ruins of Llys Euryn were again thronged with people to witness the second open- ing ceremony in connection with the pastoral bazaar, by the Ven. Archdeacon Evans, of St. Asaph. The scene was a brilliant one, the light summer dresses of the ladies showing prettily against the sombre ivy of the ruins. The vicar, the Rev E. James Evans, in a few appropriate terms, introduced the Archdeacon. Archdeacon Evans made a witty and most in- teresting speech, in which, he spoke about bazaars in general, and amused the assembly with a number of racy anecdotes bearing upon the same subject. Leaving the lighter vein, he said that it was neither Hilgh Churchism, Ritual- ism, Low Churchism nor Calvinism that hitherto had been the bane of the Welsh Church. It was stagnation; but he had 'great hopes for the future. The venerable gentleman then formally declared the bazaar open, and wished it every success. The Rev Canon Roberts, Colwyn Bay, moved a vote of thanks to the Archdeacon, and this was carried with acclamation. The work of the bazaar was then proceeded with in earnest. The arrangements were the same as those of the previous day, and the, efforts of the workers, more particularly the ladies, were as indefatigable as ever. At the stalls business was brisk, owing partly to the wonderful per- suasive powers of the charming stall-holders, and partly to the excellence and beauty of the articles for sale;. The modest bachelors who kept aloof from the stalls, seeking thereby to prevent in- roads being made upon their banking accounts, were waylaid and cornered by bevies of fascinat- ing damsels, all with something nice to offer in return for the cash down. And the cash would always be forthcqihing1! The lords of creation are credited with being strong willed, but there are some things which they cannot resist. The amusements on Thursday were of the same order as those of the previous day, and in- cluded a pastoral play, a children's operetta, and the Cafe 'Chantant. Having to go to press shortly after the first day's proceedings, we were unable to include in our report an account of the various amusements and other features of the bazaar, 'and therefore take this opportunity to mention that the pastoral play, which excited so much admiration, was acted by Miss Mary Heaton, St. Asaph, Mrs Lovett, Oswestry, and Mr Cossman, Nesscliffe. The performance both on Wednesday and Thursday, was of a very high order, and many thanks are due to. the ladies and the gentlemen who came from so great a distance to give such valuable help to the bazaar. On Wednesday a. children's operetta, "The Fairy Chain," was performed in the open air, the vicar conducting. It would be impossible to over-praise the performance. The ease and grace which each artiste evinced in the rendering of his or her part showed that natural talent had been developed to a high stage by careful prepar- ation. The following were the principal characters Prince, Master W. Darlington; princess, Miss Eira Jones; ogre, Mr Basil Carter; sprite, Master Jack Berts; fairy queen, Miss B. Hawxby; fairy lily, Miss Irene Horton; fairy violet, Miss Maggie Williams fairy daisy, Miss Barbara Horton; fairy Horton, Miss, Phillis Horton; blue bells (four in number), Misses Elsie (Marsan, Kathleen Darlington, Gwladys Berts, and Elsie Tozer; together with other fairies, ogrettes, and sprites. Owing to the coldness of the weather the operetta was on Thursday performed in the Cafe Chantanlt'tent. The sta'ge was far too small, and temporary exits had to be constructed but, notwithstanding these disadvantages, the little ones acquitted themselves creditably. During both days of the bazaar the Cafe Chant- ant was a popular rendezvous. Tea and re- freshments of the most sumptuous variety were here, dispensed by the following ladies, under the supervision of Mrs Darlington :-Mrs Grif- fith, Mrs Bell, Mrs Ellis, Mrs Pratt, Mrs Row- lands, Misses Herd, Mrs Simpson, and Miss Jones, Llys Maelgwyn. Songs and other items of a most entertaining character were renderei. on the stage. These selections were arranged by the Misses Bostock, Llys Euryn, and they de- serve warm thanks for the capital entertainment which they provided. On Wednesday, the assembly had the very great pleasure of hearing songs by Mrs Allison Johnson and Mrs Tayleur, Rhyl. Both ladies sang most charmingly, and it was felt by all that a rare musical treat had been enjoyed. Mr Hubback, Llandudno,also delighted the audience with his songs, whilst Mr Mangin's Irish jigs were most deservedly .applauded. Mr Sullivan, Colwyn Bay, read the story of the ruins, and the Vicarsanlg the song of Ednyfed Fychan. The Misses Jones, daughters of Mr William Jones, C.E., surveyor to the Colwyn Bay Council, danced very prettily, ,and charmed the audi- ence. Miss Coterill, Deganwy, also pleased everyone. On Wednesday, Riviere's Orchestra, led by Mon-s. Verbrugighen, played a number of musical pieces in the open air; and the popular Novelty Bohemians gave an hour's performance in the Cafe Chantant tent before a crowded "house." Their clever "turns" were greeted with loud applause. Limited space forbids the naming of each item. During an interval Mr Nester, the humorist of the company, addressed the audience, remark- ing that a collection would be taken, the pro- ceeds to be given towards the fund. The sum of £2 was realised in a few minutes, and the announcing of the fact by the vicar was received with loud applause. At the close of the enter- tainment a hearty vote of thanks- was accorded to the Novelty Bohemians for attending. In the open air, during Wednesday and Thursday, the various "side-shows" were well patronised; and the fun was fast and furious at the Kruger and cocoa-nut shies, and the donkey races, etc. Ping-pong was played on Wednesday, but the high wind on Thursday sadly interfered with this amusement. That the bazaar was a huge success was patent to everyone and no one was surprised when it was made known that no less than Z210 had been taken on the first day. On the second day the takings amounted to £131, making a grand total for both days of £341. Undoubtedly, the credit of having brought the bazaar to such a successful issue is due, in a very large measure, to the very efficientt com- mittees. The vicar was the chairman of the Executive Committee, Messrs J. T. Ellis and H. J. Heckle being the treasurer and hon. secretary respectively. The other committees were as fol- lows:—Grand Prep;aration Committee: Messrs J. R. Hughes, R. Morgan, M. Darlington, Hawxby, Horton, and1 Brierly. Amusement Committee Messrs T. H. Morgan, J. Owen, T. Perkins, Rowland, Clover, E. Roberts, Kent, and Gregory. Decoration Committee Messrs Price, R. Barlow, T. Jones, Tozer, J. Hughes, W. Williams, Grindley, and J. Walker. The vicar desires to thank all, contributors, whose names ,are too numerous to mention, for their kindly assistance on behalf of the under- taking.
Rhyl Urban District Council. The Steamboat Question. Programme of Coronation Festivities. MR H. A. TILBY presided over the monthly meet- ing of this Council on Monday. There was a full attendance of members. Improving the Promenade. Mr J. H. Ellis congratulated the Council upon the improved appearance of the promenade, and said the town surveyor's efforts to beautify it, by placing thereon 100 boxes of shrubs had been eminently successful. (Hear, hear). "Sunny Uhyl." The Town Surveyor reported that the amount of sunshine registered for April 25th to May 22nd was 229 hours and 45 minutes, an average of eight hours and two minutes a day. The Foryd Pier. OFFER OF A STEAMIBOAT. The Road Committee recommended that the offer of Woods land Forests to rent to the Council the old Foryd Pier at £2 a month be accepted, it being considered of vital importance that the Council should provide a landing place for steamers. This would only be a temporary pro- vision, awaiting the result of the correspondence with the -office on the subject of the contemplated new jetty. Mr J. H. Ellis and Mr Robert Jones said it was imperative that the Council should provide a proper jetty to enable steamers to land passengers. They were actually inviting peo- ple to run steamers between Rhyl and Liverpool, and yet they had no facilities to offer them. Mr Lewis Jones (solicitor) said a Captain, Rouse was prepared to make .a good offer for the jetty, and if he could get it on reasonable terms he was willing to run steamers between Liver- pool -and Rhyl during the summer, and actually commence on the 15th inst. (Hear, hear). Mr J. H. Jones objected to one man having monopoly of that part of the foreshore, because it would mean putting upon it in the future an ,artificial value if the Council wished to acquire it. The committee's recommendation was adopted. At a later stage, a letter was received from Mr Lewis, on behalf of Captain Rouse, offering the Council ^15 rent for the jetty. Several members were strongly of opinion that such an opportunity should be seized at once. Mr J. W. Jones remarked that the absence of steamboat communication was a great drawback to Rhyl, and if Captain Rouse was in a position to secure the running of a steamer on short notice the quicker they came to terms the better. It was decided to refer the matter to the Road Committee with power to act. Admission Fees to the Hospital. Mr Clews drew attention to the prevailing charge of 5s per week for the accommodation of children in the Isolation Hospital at Foryd, and suggested that the terms be made a little more elastic. Mr F. G. Gamlin said the majority of the Sani- tary Committee came to the conclusion that, as health was the staple stock-in-trade of the town, it was too important to trifle with it, and rather than. prevent -children entering the hospital, be- cause of the inability of their parents to pay the fees, they would sooner admit them for nothing. After further discussion the matter dropped. The Gas Estimates. The Gas Committee reported that they were against a general increase in. the price of gas, but it was agreed to reduce the slot-meter dis- count from 8d to 6d, so as to make the price 3s 8d instead of 3s 6d per 1,000 cubic feet. Mr J. Greenhalgh calmly ignored the subject of discussion, and condemned the proposal of the Council to spend another sum of money on the gasworks. The Chairman said they had good prospects before them if the works were placed in thorough repair. ° Eventually, the matter was referred' back for consideration. Coronation Festivities. TWO DAYS' PROGRAMME. The following programme, to cost £15°, paid out of the rates, has been -adopted' for the Coronation festivities A treat of meat tea for all over 60 years of age (about 300), tea for all children under the age of 15 (-about 1,200), choco- late boxes for the children, distribution of medals to the schools, etc. (kindly given by Mr G. A. Taverner), illumination- of Town- Hall decoration of band stand, shelters, fountain, etc. competition for prizes for sand .ca.stles/etc" sports, fireworks, and bunting. The proposed address to the King has been abandoned. All house-holders and tradesmen have been invited to decor,ate their premises. AT r^6 ('ha''rnia,i ProPoseci a vote of thanks to -lr G. A. Taverner for -his generous gift o-f i,coo medals to the schoolroom, this being the third .occasion on which Mr Taverner has presented the children with medals. A -similar compliment was paid to Mr Winter- botto-m, of the Star Supply Stores, who has offered to present all -the old people entertained by the Council with a half-pound tin of tea. Various influential committees were appoint- ed to carry out the entire. arrangements. Items in Brief. The average quantity of refuse burned dailv in the refuse destructor is about 2% tons. The tenants of the Town Hall offices have been given notice to quit with a view of raisin* the ren t. 6 Applications from Rhuddlan and St. Asaph for the band on Coronation Day was refused. Rhyl wants its own band on that occasion. The tender of Messrs Frith and Co. to "wire" the Town Hall for electric light at £ 126 was accepted. The Council have offered to li'ght the .new arcade and ballroom at 3d per unit, for a guaran- tee of 2,000 units during the twelve months. Two hundred new chairs will be purchased' for the bandstand, as well as a piano. The salary of William Parry, school attendance olticer, has been increased from ^52 to -157-
Queen Alexandra has expressed to Lady Curzon her great pleasure at the beauty of the dresses made for her in India under Lady Curzon's orders. Her Majesty will wear these dresses during the Coronation fetes.
Conway County Court. Action Against Archdeacon Morgan. AT a special court at Conway, held on Thursday last, an action was heard before Judge Sir Horatio Lloyd and a jury, in which John Williams sought to recover from Archdeacon Morgan the sum of £ 50, the value of certain improvements effected by him during his tenancy of Dolfechan Farm. The case excited much interest throughout North Wales. Mr Bellis, for the plaintiff, stated that Williams was appointed sexton of St Tudno's Church in 1893, and in virtue of that office became an occupier of the farm. Archdeacon Morgan was then rector of Llandudno, and was therefore in the position of owner of the property. When Williams entered into possession the house was in a state of decay, and this he pointed out to Mr Morgan, who told him to make improvements and he would do all justice to him." In addition to other work he built a back kitchen and rebuilt a refreshment house. Two or three years ago plaintiff's health gave way, and Mr Humphreys, agent to the Mostyn estate, upon the instructions of the defendant, valued the improvements at 234 10s, but no agreement was arrived at, and Williams continued to act as sexton until Jan- uary this year. Mr Marks, for the defence, contended that any improvements made by Williams were carried out in order that he might gain more money by letting apartments and selling refreshments. It was only after being continually requested by the plaintiff that Archdeacon Morgan consented to permithim to make any alterations, and then did so on the express understanding that Williams should bear the entire cost. In 1898 the rector was not satisfied with plaintiff's conduct, and told him he must go. Williams thereupon replied he was willing to resign if the defendant gave him compensation. The Archdeacon could not dis- charge plaintiff, as he held the freehold of the position of clerk to St Tudno's Church, and with a view to avoiding a scandal, they were willing to make a monetary sacrifice, and that was the reason Mr Humphreys was instructed to make a valuation. Williams' conduct subsequently improved, however, and nothing further was heard of the claim till the plaintiff voluntary resigned this year. Without leaving the box, the jury returned a verdict for the defendant.
Pepper and Salt. LADIES, this way, please I have just secured an edition de luxe of an American lady teacher of deportment instructions to her lady clients. Here they are, thirteen of them. I am adding a few marginal notes in case the meanings are not quite clear. 1. Sit still; be calm; study repose. Be very careful not to sit on a chair whereon a bent pin lias been placed. If you do the instruc- tions will be rather difficult to follow. 2. Never sit in rocking-chairs. It is ill-bred. And apt to upset you occasionally. 3 Never cross your legs or your feet. The reason for this rule is that probably your boots might show the want of soieing and heeling. 4. Sit up straight when you want to lounge go to bed. Be very careful to carry out this rule, although it is rather stringent. If you feel inclined to lounge between the entrees and the sweets at dinner, go straight to bed. When you return, your pudding will be cold, but you will show that you are well- bred. 5. When sitting, bend slightly, forward a little to one side. Choice of side depends upon whether your best boy is right or left-handed. 6. Do not clasp your hands over your knees. 7. Do not sit with your arms folded. 8. Never, never sit with your feet under you. This does not imply by any means that you should sit with your feet over you. It simply means that you are not to put your dusty boots on the rails of the chair. It worries your hostess. 9. Avoid hammocks and divans. They are vulgar. Engaged couples need not comply with this. 10. Americans rarely know how to walk. So don't be an American if you can help it. Try and be born in some other country. 11. Learn to glide gracefully Don't tramp. You could practice gliding on the banisters or the roof. You musn't tramp, because begging is illegal, and casual wards are not fit places for well- bred ladies. 12. Don't use a title too often; it is a sure sign that you are not used to one. If you happen lo know Lord Foozlum, call him Bertie to your lady friends. 13. Don't know too much. This last instruction having evidently been writ- ten in a nasty, sarcastic spirit, I would advise you. not to take any notice of it. A question which a correspondent has put to me will, I think, take a good deal of answering. It has reference to a subject in which I am sure all my young lady readers are interested at this time of the year. I will give my correspondent's own words:— I have sat opposite to her in the Pavilion fourteen times, and even a cornet solo has failed to draw my eyes off her. She has caught me looking at her scores of times, and she does not seem to mind it at all. In fact, I rather fancy I have often seen her half smile at me. But she turns her face down in such a deliciously shy manner that I can- not be quite sure on this point. I met her a few afternoons ago on the Pier, when the Bohemians were on, and I sat next to her on a seat. Under cover of the "Toreador" song, which that fine Bohemian chappie sings, I ventured to say Good afternoon' to her. She immediately shifted to another seat. She cut me dead after returning my ardent glances for fourteen consecutive evenings I saw her the same evening in the Pavilion, and she looked just the same as before at me. So I have come to the conclusion that she is a dear good girl who won't talk to anyone without a formal introduction. And I am going away in a few days, and I have no one to introduce me Now, Mr Man-about-Town. is she right in acting like that ? If she wants to know me why can't she speak ? Why should two lives be blighted and two fond hearts be kept apart because of a silly little point of etiquette ? I hope you'll forgive me for troubling you with what might seem to you a very paltry subject, but I have felt very strongly about it." I'd rather not say whether I consider it a paltry subject or not for obvious reasons; but I think all my readers will agree that it's a delicate question and one which is always to the front during the holiday season. I shall appeal to you all for your opinions. Perhaps some of my lady readers will kindly give us their views on the subject ? Of course, it will be understood that the whole subject applies only to the holiday season, when young people are so much thrown together. I shall ask all who will write to kindly keep their communi- cations brief and to the point. THE MAN-ABOUT-TOWN. t' —
