Prayer Meeting.—On Monday even- ing last, under the auspices of the Free Church Council, an united prayer meeting was held at the Siloam Con- gregational Chapel. School Attendance.—Miss Rebecca Gladys Rocke, daughter of Mrs R. G. I Rocke, Maindee House, has won four silver medals and a silver watch for attending the Council School for five [ years without missing or being late once. The Prince of Wales Fund.—On Sunday last, special collections were made at S. John's, S. David's, and Llanaber Churches in aid of the Prince of Wales National Relief Fund,and over R40 was collected, which sum has been sent to the headquarters by the Rector (Rev. R. Lloyd Roberts, 11.A., R.D. Bunyan a Soldier." — The great author of "Pilgrim's Progress" was a soldier and fought for what he thought was the cause of right. Read "Bunyan, Yesterday and To-day," and see how the great Puritan was saved to do greater work. The book may be bad at Rbys Jones and Pyemont, Stationers. Patriotism.—The spirit of patriotism which prevails throughout the country is nowhere more keenly manifested than at Min-y-Mor. Mr and Mrs Lloyd have liberally supported every movement in the town, the object of which was to augment the funds for minimising the misery which will inevitably occur owing to the terrible crisis through which the country is passing. Mr Lloyd is not one to indulge in much talk- ing, but is a silent but ardent worker. On Sunday evening last, a Sacred Con- cert was held at the beautiful hall con- nected with Min-y-Mor, and a collection was made for the Prince of Wales Fund. A sum of three guineas was realised and handed over to Mr J. Jones, The Lib- rary, to be added to the amount which will be realised at the grand Patriotic Entertainment to be given at the Pavi- lion to-night 'Thursday). So far we have not beard of any Boarding House or Hotel in the town making any special effort in this direction. It is to be hoped that the fine example given by Mr and Mrs Lloyd will be emulated by others. The need is great—the cause is worthy of our best sacrifice, for every pound will help to gladden some sad heart. The following was the programme as carried out:— out:—Pianoforte solo, Mrs F. Sison Ham; song, Mr Ernest Lloyd song, Miss Megan Evans; song, Mr Curtis; violin solo, Mr Silvers; song, Miss Har- greaves (by kind permi3sion of Mr John Walters) song, Mr Ernest Hargreaves (by kind permission of Mr John Wal. ters) song, Miss Deavonport; song, Mr Chas. Elstree (by kind permission of Messrs Pare and Bowden); chorus, Male Voice Choir. Interval for silver collec- tion. Pianoforte solo, Mr Rosenberg; song, Miss Standage Song, Mr Ernest Hargreaves; recitation, Mrs Boshier; I. song, Miss Sison Ham; monologue, Mr Chas./Elstree; song, Miss Hargreaves song, Mr Walter Davies chorus, Male Voice Choir. The Art Picture House.—This popu- lar place of amusement continues to be well-patronized by visitors and residents alike, who speak most highly of the steadiness and clearness of the pictures shown. To-night (Thursday) a special display of Army and Navy Pictures will be shown. On Friday and Saturday, a complete change of pictures will be thrown on canvas. Cambrian Resorts Association.—At the request of Mr S. Williamson, general manager of the Cambrian Railways Company, a special meeting of the Cambrian Resorts Association was held at Barmouth last week. The chair was taken by Mr Williamson, who explained that the Cambrian Company were very desirous of taking specialsteps in con- junction with the local authorities to attract'tourists to the Coast, and inti- mated that the Company were prepared to spend in the exceptional circum- stances a sum of at least L150 in special advertising. Mr Williamson also stated that he had already inserted at the expense of the Cambrian Com- pany special announcements in most of the London and provincial newspapers, drawing attention to the Coast, and that additional posters bad been issued. After some discussion, it was under- stood that each resort represented should make some effort to advertise its own particular place, leaving the Cambrian Company to advertise the district as a whole. It was also agreed that lodging-house keepers should be invited to send out to their usual patrons a special circular letter pointing out-the present favourable conditions on the Coast with a view of inducing them to take their holidays at one of the Cardigan Bay Resorts. Poems of Wales selected by Mr Edmund D. Jones, M.A., Barmoutb. This is the title of a book for the use of schools, by the versatile Headmaster of our Intermediate School. The author evidently has his finger on the pulse of the times for as be says in his Preface, Every teacher will readily admit that the cultivation of a spirit of enlightened patriotism is an essential factor in a really national system of education. The first poem in the book by William Watson, Wales-a Areeting, ought to be read by every Englishman and Welsh- man at this time of national struggle— and the second poem even in its title sounds prophetic when we think of the barbarism of the Germans in our present conflict,"Struggle of the Britons against the Barbarians." There are many other poems which move the heart and stir the blood to emulate the mighty deeds of our forefathers in their defence of their ancient Gwalia. The names of such authors as Lord Tennyson, Sir Walter Scott, Lewis Morris, William. Morris, Southey, George Meredith, Matt- hew Arnold, Dafydd ap Gwilym, &3 is a sufficient guarantee of the intrinsic value of the book, and this is greatly en- hanced by the valuable notes of the author in the last six pages. We are also glad to note that two of the four illustrations, viz., Snowdon and The Grave of Taliesin, are by our esteemed townsman, Mr A. J. Hewins, Garreg Lwyd. The whole get up of the book is splendid-tbe paper and the letter press is pleasing to the touch and eye. The possession of this little treasure would enrich the minds and hearts of adults as well as our boys and girls. The price is 9d., and may be had of Mr Rhys Jones, Stationer. St. Tudwal's Catholic Church.—The collection made at the above Church in aid of the Prince of Wales National Relief Fund amounted to £10, which sum was sent to the head quarters by the Rev. Father Wilcock. Collectors. The following are the collectors for the Local Relief Com- mittee in aid of the Prince of Wales Fund :—Mrs John Morgan, Mrs J.

Martin Williams, and Rhys Jones, Esqrs., two well-known characters named James Ratterly, and Robert Williams, were charged by P. C, Oliver C. Davies, and P. C. Pritchard, with trading without a licence on the previous night in town, both pleaded guilty, and were each committed to one month hard labour.

Jones, The Library, Wil liam Owen, Edward Williams, Rees Jones, Moss Bank, Dr. J. 0. Williams, Dr. J. Pughe Jones, Rev. Father Wilcock, Mrs John Morgan, and Mr R. Llewelyn Owen.

Jones, The Library, and Rees Jones; Moss Bank. Presentation.—At a meeting held last Tuesday afternoon, Sept. 1st., at the Tennis Pavilion, a silver cigarette box with inscription was presented to the Captain of the Tennis Club, Rev. Henry Williams, B.A., on bis departure this week to Menai Bridge, as a small token of appreciation for his valuable services to the Club and town. Before the pre- sentation, one of the vice-captains, Miss Dolly Richards, Greenhill, made the following vivacious speech I expect we all know why we have come together this afternoon. I am sure we are all very sorry to lose Mr Williams from our midst, especially we, tennis people. He has been most kind in doing all he could to help, and I am sure if it were not for his untiring zeal and energy we should not have bad the extension co the Pavi- lion and the water laid on, which has proved such an asset. Whatever Mr Williams took in hand he carried through. I am sure we are most grate- ful to him. I feel also he has a warm corner in his heart for us (notwithstan- ding our shortcomings in punctuality, etc.) I am sorry all the committee are not present, but most of them are away and circumstances will not permit the others to come. 1 have great pleasure in calling upon Miss M. E. Davies to present Mr Williams with a small, but sincere, offering from us, and may he have a long, happy and properous life." The presentation was suitable made by Miss M. E. Davies, St. Ann's. Personal Mr Lewis Owen, St. George's Terrace, has returned home from the Royal Southern Hospital, Liverpool, where he underwent a serious operation, and is now making satisfactory progress towards recovery. The Alfresco Pavilion.—On Satur- day evening last, the Alfresco Pavilion t was crowded to its utmost capacity when the Empire Serenaders gave a special concert. All the artistes were well-received, and some of the members had to appear three times in succession which proves that the audience are well pleased with the various items. Thirteen took part in the beauty com- petition and the first prize was won by Miss Isaacs, a visitor staying at Man- chester House. The concert concluded with the sensation of the age, upside down dancing by the well-known Spinette Quintette, who are undet the management of Mr Walter Paskin, the energetic acting manager of the Al Fresco Pavilion. Residents and visitors should not fail to visit these popular entertainers. To-morrow night (Friday) a grand up-side down competition will take place. On Saturday night, a go as-you-please competition will be the chief attraction. The first prize will be 10s. 6d. and ohe second prize, 5cS. (in cash). Entries can now be given for any of the competitions at the Art Picture House or the Alfresco Pavilion. The Royal Magnets' Annual Benefit. -On Friday last, by the courtesy of Messrs. Pare and Bowden, the members of the Royal Magnets took their annual benefit. A large and enthusiastic aud- ience attended, and showed their appre- ciation in no uncertain manner, every item being received with vociferous ap- plause. The Magnets gave a lengthy programme, brimful of amusement and interest. All the numbers were ren- dered in a most excellent manner, with that vigour and vim which so charac- terised their entertainments. Every member acquitted himself admirably, and the whole programme went with a right good swing and received the hearty applause it so richly deserved. On this occasion the Royal Magnets were assis- ted by Mr R. G. Rees, light comedian and dancer, and Stanley Jones, the boy harpist. The former gentleman sang in a very tuneful and breezy manner a very catchy song, and also showed evidence of no mean terpsichorean ability, and responded to an undeniable encore. Stanley Jones gave great delight with his harp solos, he displayed wonderful technique and feeling, and the audience would not be satisfied until he had given them further evidence of his ability. Altogether the conoert was a huge suc- cess, and concluded with a screaming absurdity, entitled" The. Mesmerist," the whole thing was so ludicrously funny and so cleverly done that the andience were kept in a state of laughter all through and were sent away in the best of humour. We were extremely deligh- ted to see such a tremendous crowd rally round The Boys on this occasion, and it is gratifying to kndw:that the visitors do appreciate what this excellent com- pany has done to add to their enjoyment. It was also extremely pleasant to see so many townspeople giving their sup- port to those who provide what is a necessity in Barmouth, a clean and wholesome entertainment for which the Magnets have proved themselves second to none. We are informed that con- sidering the times the Royal Magnets are more than satisfied with the finan. cial result. <
