HUNTING. OTTER HUNT IN THE VALE OF CLWYD. Mi- Hill's Otter Hounds, which hunt in the Dee and its tributaries, had a day's sport in the Clwyd on Bank Holiday, and were followed by a large crowd of spectators. A start was made near Rhewl, the river being worked downwards. No trace of an otter could be found until between Pont Glanywern and Lleweni. There for a while sport became very exciting, but the otter found safe earth, and had to be left. The day ended without a kill, much to the disappointment of the Eportsmen.

RAMBLES IN ABERGELE DISTRICT. TOWN ADVERTISING ASSOCIATION'S ENTERPRISE. (From Our Correspondent.) The Aberg-ele Town Advertising Association have inaugurated country rambles for v sitors, which bid fair to become very popular. The first was arranged to-day week. Owing to the rather inconvenient time of starting, 1.40 (writes "Oestrian," one of the party), the number who availed th, uwelve-s of the opportunity was not very large. How- ever, a party of twenty set off, and a right jolly party we were. The outward journey to Moelfre Isaf, through Plas Uchaf Woods, was somewhat of a stiff climb, And the pscr. set found out the weak spots in wind aid limb. It was qui.te evident that none of 1he ladies suffered from heart disease, for iiay were well in the van, and negoti tted the rather awkward stiles like ardent athlo^s. We were, however, well rewarded with the magnificent scenery and fine views en route, and from the height where we rested we feasted on the expansive panorama of the Clwyd Valley and surrounding country, which recompensed us in every way for our stiff climb. The return journey was made through Ysgeiriallt Woods and the beautiful Dingle, and we reached Abergele about five o'clock, having thoroughly enjoyed our ramble. "Our guides, Mesrs Harry E. Thomas and D. G. Roberts, are to be complimented on their unselfish efforts to make the ramble as pleasurable as possible; they did the thing handsomely, and we visitors appreciate their kindness very much. I advise every visitor not to miss the opportunity of an enjoyable ramble, for I am sure that the beauties of Abergele are very little known. To botanists and lovers of nature, the walk was particular- ly interesting, the thing to regret was that more time was needed to thoroughly enjoy and study Nature's good things." Another ramble took place this week, when about forty visitors went to Pen-y-Corddyn, the direction taken being past Bryngwenallt, to U??-d-dyn Mo am d Tyddyn Ucliaf to 'r? an P-em??:C?6r?ldyn or ess, recently excavated under the aaspioes (d the local Antiqu,<?rian Associa;tiom.
A pickpocket on a crowcDed tramcar m Vienna betrayed himself by screaming when a woman into whoso bag he bad put his hand- suddenly clowd) it on his fingers. The oar was stopped, and he was handled over to a policeman. The dteath is announced, at the ago of seventy-two, of Mr Edmund W. Pike, who was for more than a quarter of a century postmaster of the House of Commons. Mr Edward Linloy Sambauane, who suooeeded Sir John Tenniel as chief cartoonist of "Puradh," died at his residence in London on Wednesday morning. Sir Charles Hardiinge, the new Viceroy of India, will take the title of Ba-ron Hardinge, of Penslhiuist, Kent, on his elevation to the peer- age.

The one mi1.e bicycle handicap was weil contested, 17 taking port in the event, Isaao Roberts, Glanoonway, again proving the victor. The lads' obstacle race was very amusing.

COLWYN BAY FLORAL FETE. NUMEROUS AND BEAUTIFUL EXHIBITS. TWO-DAYS' PROGRAMME OPENED YESTERDAY. LIST OF THE AWARDS. With commendable courage and enterprise the members of the Colwyn Bay Horticultural So- ci-ety introduoed at least one new icature of ocn- siderable importanoe into their programme for the annual exhibition this year, namely, the ex- tension of the show over two days. The open- ing day yesterday proved exceedingly favour- able, in point of weather, the eain shixung brilliantly throughout the afternoon, while its heat was tempered by a cooling, rafxeehing breeze. The initial ceremony was attended by an assembly which, though fashionably attired, was not so strong numerically as one might have anticipated under the circumstances, a fact which ymi perhaps dloo to the distance of the van/ue from the oentre of the town. Bryn Din- arth grounds, which, had been very generously piiaoed at the disposal of the oommittee by Mr Wm. Horton, for the occasion, 8.m perfectly adapted in every sense but their situation. To most of us the thenee-quarter mile waJk wa3 as nothing, but it is to be feared that the majority of people axe not (Sufficiently enthusiastic in their admiration even of beautiful flowers and fruit to exert themselves much to satisly their sense of the aesthetic. In truth the inspection of the extensive and beautiful Bryn Dinarth grounds and woods was in itself abundantly worth the waik, and when a first rate exhibition olf Sowers, fruit, and vegetables, to say nothing of the many interesting "side shows," is thrown into the bargain, as it were, it will be realised1 that the little journey is not made in vain. It is to be hoped that to-day (Thursday) visitors and others will flock to the grounds in their thou- sands to see a ahow really worth seeing. On this occasion the patrons were the Coun- ters of Dundonald, Hon. Mrs L. A. Brodnck, and Colonel the Hon. H. LL Mostyn; whie Mr David Gamble, J.P. was the president, with Mada.me Riviere as vice-president. Mr T. E. Purdy was alain chairman of the Committee of Management, with Mr W. Jackson as vioe- cihairman. Mr W. Herbert Bourne was the hon. treasurer, and Mr Walter Groom, Chandos, the secretary. THE OPENING CEREMONY. The opening ceremony took place shortly after tbr.a. o'c?cok, 1),6 Pro-ident (Mr Gamble) and t the Lady President (Madame Riviere) being ac- companied by Lady Roberts, of Bryngwenallt, Mrs Gamble and a number of the best known ladies and gentlemen of the neighbourhood. Before calling upon Lady Roberts to open the exhibition, Mr Gamble congratulated Madame Riviere, Mr Purdy, and the committee gene- rally upon the step they had taken on this oc- casion in making the show one of two days. In so doing they had undcrtaken a great responsi- bility, and he hoped their efforts would be re- paid, so that for the future they would be able to carry on the ehow, which had grown steadily year by year thus far, with even more conspicu- ous success. He also congratulated the com- mittee upon instituting special ciaases for the young people of the district, which, be thougnt, should not only help to encourage their interest in the flower show, but also increase their know- ledge in a helpM direction (hear, hear). Lady Roberts, who was received with cheers, in the first place congratulated the show upon the beautiful weather which favoured their opening day, and further upon the number of people who attended that ceremony, the latter fact indica- ting the very keen interest manifested by the population of Colwyn Bay in that very interest- ing event. So far as she had been able to see the tents up till that moment the show appeared to be much larger than when she previously had the pleasure of opening it, and she hoped it would be a very great success financially and in every other respect. She felt sure there was a need for the show in a town like Colwyn Bay, which was famous all over the world for its beautiful natural scenery and its beautiful gar- dens. She had seen something of its gardens and knew how beautiful they were laid out. There could not but be a great many fine ex- hibits not only from them, but from the gardens throughout the neighbourhood round about, and she believed the show must do a great deal of good in promoting interest in the cultivation of flowers, fruit and vegetables—a delightful and interesting hobby which helped to develop a love of beauty in growing things (applause). With renewed good wishes to the committee for a very successful two days' business she had great pleasure in declaring the show open (ap- plause). Mr Charles Reynolds, who proposed a vote of thanks to Lady Roberts, remarked that when Mr George Bevan and Mr Hooper approached him seven years ago with a request that he should act as president of the first of the Society's shows, he little dreamt that it was to attain the dimensions the exhibition of this year bad reached. There was no place in England where flowers could be grown to better advantage than at Colwyn Bay (cheers). Mr John Brock seconded, and said he person- ally felt especially thankful to Lady Roberts for coming to open the show for the second time. The motion was carried with acclamation. A cordial vote of thanks was also accorded Mr and Mrs Horton for the use of their field and ground, on the motion of the President, second- ed by Lady Roberts, who remarked that one of the pleasures of possessing beautiful grounds wag when they gave pleasure to other people, but it was none the less kind of Mr and Mrs Horton to lend their beautiful grounds that day (hear, hear). On the motion of Mr Purdy, seconded by Mr J. Crompton, thanks were also heartily voted Mr jnd Mrs Gamble for their support to the Society; to Madame Rivierre for her unceasing efforts on behalf of the show; to the donors of special prizes; to the L. and N.-W. Railway Company for the special travelling and other facilities ar- ranged for the day; to the Boy Scouts and their chief officers for their assistance; to the hon. treasurer (Mr Bourne) and the secretary (Mr Groom), and finally to the Press. Thanks to the judges were voted on the motion of Mr R. Greenfield, Llandudno, seconded by Mr R. Thompson, J.P. THE EXHIBITS. The judges were Messrs Burgess, Chester; Blair, head gardener to the Duke of Suther- land!; Smith, manager to Messrs Brown-. Man- chester, and! Saunderson, Bodnant, and when asked for their views upon the exhibition Mr ]?urgess, cn bahajf of himself and. oolleapes, 4)e?,n?7 3?OL-rticulaxly of the general, exhibits, sa.i.d the?v were ex()ell,-ut. The flowers were that they were sbown in gc*d comf'- in There improvetneirt was a great many (Jepartments of the show. The trade ex- hibits were in their opinion splendid, an-d though the silver oup had been awarded to Messrs Cti- bran it had not been done without much con- sideration, for they had experienced consider- able difficulty in coming to a decision, tOO ex- cellent and) high in class were the other exhibits. The ookyur of the flowers! ira the show generally was exquisite, a fact dlue no doubt to the* beau- tiful atmosphere in which they were grown. Reverting to the trade exhibits, Mr Burgess said there was one exhibit of sweet peas—No 28 —(Messrs Middlehurst's) which had not been awarded' the cup, but in which "the qiiiity of the flowers was superb and without a single bSemish. The ordinary exhibits numbered <.ver KO, whereas if those shown by the children were in- cluded they would be within an appreciable dis- tance of the round thousand. THE PRIZE LIST.

BETTWSYCOED URBAN COUNCIL. PETITIONERS' UNAVAILING APPEAL. The monthly meeting of this Council waa held on Thursday evening, Mr Henry Ro- berte, J.P., presiding. There were also pre. sent: Messrs John Hughes (vioe-chairmanjj T. W. B. Corns, R. Parry, J.P., Henry Wil- liams, B. PuRan, W. Williams, W. E. Jones, Thomas Parry, T. W. Evans, Abel Davies, together with the Clerk (Mr Salisbury Jones) and Surveyor (Mr R. D. Jones). LICENCES. A game licence was granted to Mrs Jones* Coed y Pair, and licences for the sale of petrol to, Mrs MoCullock, Waterloo Hotel Mr Pullan, Royal Oak Hotel, and Mr R. Parry, Pendyffryn (two). FINANCE. Mr Corns reported that the Finance COSH mittee had examined accounts amounting to X87 4s Sd, which were recomm-emded for payment. This amount included payment of the gas account for the year ending March last. The report was adopted. STREET LIGHTING TENDER. The tender of the Holyhead and Nortli Wales Gas Company for street lighting at 30B per lamp was accepted. THE STEPPING STONES. Mr Abel Davies reported that he, the vice* chairman and the surveyor had met at the stepping stones the representatives of the Llanrwst Rural District Council, and after due consideration they had agreed to do the necessary repairs at the old crossing at a sum not exceeding .£6, each Council to bear half the cost. The deputation's report was confirmed. DUST LAYING. The petition of Mr R. Morris and others was further considered. The petitioners complained that the use of akonia on the roads caused much damage to carpets and furniture, and they appealed to the Council to adopt tar for the purpose instead. Mr Thomas Parry moved that tar be used on the portion between Llys Caradog and Mount View, and also on the level part near, Pont y Pair as well as on the bridge itself. Mr Abel Davies said the Council should use tar on all the roads. Mr Thomas Parry pointed out that theft were tons of akonia in stock, which must be used, and he thought it could be utilised IS places where there were no houses. Mr Corns seconded. Mr Pullan moved an amendment thall. whilst sympathising with the petitioners, it was not wise for tnem to alter their plaoes without good reason. They would remember that the county surveyor had laid stress off the danger of laying tar on the hills a £ Bettwsycoed. They itfust also bear in mind that they had a stock of akonia on hand ready for use, and their estimate for the year had been completed and adopted, and could not mow be altered. Mr Thomas Parry: The petitioners arguo that the tar is not slippery. Mr Abel Davies: Is it any more slippery; here than in other places? What about Deo* high ? Mr Pullan: We can give you chapter and Terse, Mr Davies. The county surveyor has instructed us where we can place the tazw and the road must be prepared to the satia* faction of the county authority. Mr Corns maintained that all flat portions should be treated with tar, as their roads were undulating. They must treat all the level places alike. Mr Evans said they appeared to be some- what in the dark relative to the subject, and he suggested deferring it until the next meet- ing. On being put to the vote the amendment was carried by a majority of one. POSTAL HOURS. The Postmaster General wrote stating that it was his intention to change the hours, when the Post Office would be open from seven a.m. to eight p-m., as at present from eight ajn. to eight p.m. It was decided to appeal to the PostmasteC General to adhere to the present svstem. MUroR COACH SERVICE SUGGESTED. A letter was read from Messrs Griffith and Allard, Llanrwst, stating that the Llandudno Garage Company proposed to run ii?9RHftiee- tion with the Railway Company a motor coach to Beddgelert and Portmadoc, starting from the company's private yard, and doing one journey daily. The letter was left on the table. THE EMPLOYMENT OF CHILDREN'S ACT. On the motion of Mr Thomas Parry it was resolved to ask the County Council to adopt the Act of 1903 throughout the countv. R COMPANY'S CONTRIBUTION. A communication was read from the London' and North-Western Railway Company agree* ing to the contribution of £ 5 5s tow a « dust laying on the length of the road on their property. VITAL STATISTICS. The Medical Officer of Health reported that no births and two deaths had occurred during the month of June. THE COUNTY ROAD. It was re-ported that the County Council had removed one of their men employed oat the county road in the village, and it was Tesdved that a deputation should oa the county surveyor respecting the matter, and also to can his attention to the growth of grass on the foctwalks in the village.
