HOLIDAY-MAKING. Another August Bank Holiday has come and gone. Happliy it has left nothing but pleasant memories with the majority of us. Notwithstanding the evil forebodings of news- paper weather prophets, the atmospheric con- ditions were, if not absolutely summery, at any rate exceedingly plea-sureable right up till the close of the day, for the light showers experienced in some centres before sunset troubled very few people. The barometer indicated a change for the worse subsequent- ly, but that mattered little to the masses who were "out for the day and oblivious of the morrow" which would see them once more back in the workshop, mill or factory. Sufficient for the day its good characteristics. It is, of course, practically impossible to back up tin statement with reliable figures and facts, but there is every reason to be- lieve that North Wales, the Midlanders' pleasure ground, has never attracted more peoplo than on Monday. Even in rural hamlets, divorcod from most of the amenities of -a health resort, one found isolated com- panies of the invading army; wide arelts of rugged mountain land untrodden by human foot for twelve months were no longer de- serted, whilst tho large and small watering places on the coast found it difficult to accom- modate the many thousands of strangers with- in their gates. The Welshman is nothing if not a good host, however, and there is no caus. to doubt the success of his catering on this occasion. One very gratifying feature of these great popular festivals is the in- creased sobriety and orderliness of the parti- cipants. It is a hopeful and comforting fact that, with one or two exceptions, the police court lists throughout North Wales on Tuesday were absohitely blank so far as eases of holiday drunkenness were concerned. Never- theless there seems to be nothing wanting in the enthusiasm or the honest enjoyment of the modem holiday-making crowd. A-mother pleasing feature of the holiday was its free- dom f. r> tucse fatal and serious moun- taineering and other accidents which too frequently have marred previous holidays; and the Railway Company's employees have also cau.C for self-congratulation in the success which attended their endeavours to -my -n cl o'd th-e ai -of yoiim a entrT^'Cd to their care. Visitors making a prolonged in North Wales will no doubt appreciate +ho tireless efforts made to ensure their cociiort and happiness. To make both possible local authorities spare neither time nor money. 8kc'
