Cbe Cate rnr. Evan parrp, 5, fldfor Cerrace. A highly respected resident of Bar. mouth has passed away suddenly into the « Great Beyond in the person of Mr Evan Parry, plasterer, 5, Aelfor Terrace. He was a native of Dalgelley, whpre be was born about 67 years ago, but came to reside at Barmouth 45 years ago. Mr Parry was a man of a very quiet and unassuming disposition; thought the best and spoke the best of everybody. He was a faithful member of the Wesleyan Church, and the week-night meetings were faithfully attended by him. His temperament and disposition accounted for the fact that he was not prominent in church work, but neverthe- less he gladly contributed his share" towards the maintenance of the minis- try and the up keep of the church. He was a faithful and loyal supporter to the cause. He passed away peacefully in his sleep. We trust that his sudden death is to him a sudden glory. The deceased leaves a wife, two sons, and three daugbthers to mourn his loss. The funeral (private) will tnke place to-morrow (Friday) at LlanaberChurch- yard, the officiating minister being the Rev. E. J. Parry. The duties of undertaker ftre in the hands of Mr Richard Roberts, Ivy House. now

Several talented friends kindly gave their services, and were well received.—Miss Nina Davies, an ex- ceptionally clever little lady of very tender years, gave a spirited rendering of "Private Micbaet Cassedy," and for an encore," The Villain Still Pursued Her." Her method is both natural and charm- ing, and the audience showed their keen appreciation in no uncertain mitnoer. Miss Marie Morgan, an exquisite soprano, gave a really artistic rendering of Collinette," and for an encore, "Becaose.Mr E. N. Compton, baritone, sang The Curfew" in a fine dramatic style, and, in response to repeated I demands, sang An English Rose with great feeling.— Miss Dora Jones possesses a beoutiful contralto voice of fine tone and quality, ahd her renderings of "When You Come Home" and "The Coming of a Dream" were full of artistic soul and tenderness.—Miss Winnif red Morgan's monologues, Hand- ing Down" and Loraine," were very much to the taste of the audience, splendidly given, with great dramatic fervour and artistic finish, well meriting the applause received.-Mr Bobby Fraser at the piano was most entertaining, and met with a. flattering reception.—The Magnets themselves were as full of vivacity and spirit as ever, and proved themselves an irresistible combination. Their concluding sketch, "ThePoisoned Milk," was vastly amusing. The wbole was a most delightful entertainment, and sent the audience away on very good terms with themselves. MEMORIAL SERVICE.—A memorial service, in memory of the late Private R. H Roberts, Star Stores, and Pentre Du, Aber, Bangor, was held at the Wesleyan School-room on Sunday night. The Pastor (Rev. E. J Parry) preached a most appropriate and powerful sprmon based on Deuteronomy. Chapter 34, verse 6, latter portion, Hidden body, but a revealed life." God buried the body of Moses, io order that He might reveal to the nation, the nobility of his life. The Israelites were in danger of multiplying their gods. Thejjatmosphere was lent itself to hero worship. Their great temptation was. of making a hero of Moses and worship him. God reo moved the temptation by hiding his body. The late Private R. H. Roberts was tabled by the War Office among the missing for over 12 months, eventually the sad news came that be was among those who were killed in the Sulva Bay advance, August 24th-25th, 1915. "No man knoweth of his grave." but we have a life Full of nobility. He was a young man of spllndid promise. A gifted ^ud diligent student. To his intellectual gifts be added a beautiful, modest, Christian character. Everybody were impressed by, bis transparent goodness and nothing but praise was heard of him from those who had known him at home as well as daring his train- ing. In him, truth, honour and purity found a human embodiment. We have something better to-day than bis body. A life worthy of the best traditions of the Church of Chrisb.-Capt. William Morris, Mr Robert Griffith, and Me Wm. Jones, Cumberland Pj&civspoke feeling- ly and sympathetically of the deceased's character and activities in the church. His class-leader, Mr J. pryoe Jones, was unavoidably absent. A most impressive service was held and the presence of friends from other churches, as well as the large congregation present, testified to his excellent character. THE BARMOUTH SOLDIERS AND SAILORS.—A hearty invitation and a strong appeal was sent to every Cbnrch and Chapel in the town, requesting them to appoint representatives toform a committee for the purpose or accumu- lating a food by means of which com- forts can be forwarded to our brave and loyal men,who are sacrificing everything that is dear to them in the world, and undergoing indescribable trials of endur- ance in ordef to protect the religion, liberty and the very existence of the mother country and the glorious British Empire. Barmouth has already done much in the general way of supporting our various war funds, too much, bow. ever, cannot be done in this way. But in all seriousness, what about oupown brave boys, who have already spent one, some of them two, miserable winters in the trenches. While we are comfortably housed, comfortably fed, at perfect liberty to come and .go in peace and follow our amusements, many of our boys may be freezing in the flooded trenches, facing a relentless foe, risking their lives to protcct* us. Is it too much to expect every class, without distinction, every man and womac among us to unite and co-operate, even to make a sacrifice in order to provide a few com- forts, and demonstrate in a, practical way our appreciation of the baroism of oor men. :Cf. —- On Monday last, the Committee met when the following oburehes were re- presented :—LI an aber, Me Thos. WI". Piggott; St. John's, Mr Dudley, Coes- faen; St. David's, Me R. W. Jones; .Caersalem, Mr Henry Freeman Park Road, Mr D. R. Williams; Baptist Chapel, Mr Griffith Roberts; English Congregational. Church, Jubilee Road, Rev. D. Phillips; Wesleyan Chapel, Mr Ellis G. Owen. The following resolu. tions wete unanimously passed :—That an entertainment be held on Wednesday next, the 18th inst, That Messrs John Walters and W. Leonard, Law be asked to give the use of the Pavilion gratis. That Messrs Pare and Bowden and Miss Bessie Jones (Mrs Kinton, London) be asked to give their servioes free. That two ladies from each of the cb arches; that are willing to help, be asked to sell tickets before baud. That m, sub-com- mittee be appointed to carry out all the arrangements. That the following officials be appointed :—Chairman, Mr Thos. W. Piggott, J.P.; treasurer, Mr iiees Jones, Moss Bank secretary, Mr J. Jones, The Library. It is to be hoped I that no expense at all will bo incurred I and that the whole of the proceeds can I be devoted to the object in view. When I the ticket sellers come round, it is to be sincerely hoped that they will have a very pic-asantand encouraging recep- tion and that a s-Ingle denial to support so worthy a cause will be unknown. P.S.—For reasons which are quite unavoidable the Entertainment MAY be held on Thursday 14th and not Wednes- day 13th. Posters and Handbills, however, giving publicity to the date, will be distributed in due coarse. THE ART PICTURE HOUSE.— The star film at this popular Picture House this week was A Welsh Singer from the novel by Allen Raine. The large crowds of patrons testified to the Stirling worth of this splendid film. For next Friday and Saturday, there is a Laemmle 3 reel drama, "A woman's weakness and -?" one of the most original photo-plays ever shown on a screen. From the beginning, the in. dentity of the doctor in the hands of the police baffles ycu and no matter how many human stories you may have seen, you will never guess the outcome of this remarkable play.-On Tuesday and Wednesday next a splendid Swedish Biograph Drama in three engrossing reels entitled, 11 The Priceloot Betrayal," wiU be shown. For the benefit of onr readers we produce a short synopsis of the film There is illness in Hult's home; his wife lies at the door of death but there is no monpy to bay medicine, for Hult is out of work. In his extremity he goes to see his friend Bloom, ateo out of work. C Lend me your gun,' he says, and 1'H geti a bird theb I can sell.' At Squire Bowman's, poachers have recently been reported, and the gamekeepers have been ordered to keep a close watch for their return. When Halt andBIoom enter the Squire's wood and prepare their decoy they are soon located and chased. In a struggle with one of the keepers, Halt's gun goes off, and the man falls dead at his feeet. After the escape, Bloom's gun is founo, and h,is initials, carved on the stock, put the police on his track but while the house is being searched he effects a daring escape, and goes to Hult for protection. In Hult's home be remains. Meanwhile, Hult's wife is getting worse and worse for lack of proper doctoring, and Hult is in the very depths of despair. One day be sees a notice offering. big reward for information leading to the arrrest of the supposed murderer. The temptation to betray his friend is strong upon him, but be doee not yield until he reaches bornel and finds the doctor bending over his wife's dead body. I have no money to pay you with, doctor, nor to bury her with," and promptly decides to give bis friend away, leaving the doctor with his child while he goes to inform the police. But Bloom, in the loft above, has become suspicious of Halt's intentions, and determines to escape while there is yet time. He is about to leaye the honse when the police arrive. Only by biding the body of Hult's wife in a sack and taking her place under the shroud does be etude the representatives of the law for the moment, merely to fail into their hands the instant he sets foot out. side the house. Judas" is the only. word that cornea to his lips'when Con- fronted by Hult, his silent accuser. Hult collects the reward of his perfltly; but his conscience by this time is fully awake. The money seems to burn his fingers. He must pay the price of betrayal—he must confesssand save the acouged man's life, even at the cost of his own worthless existence. The con- fession is written and sent to the police, and a little while later Hult's body is found in the river. The confession arrives just in time to save Bloom, who is acquitted amidst the congratulations ofeveryone in court, and the price of I betrayal brings happiness at last, for Squire Browman presents the acquitted man with the sum which tempted Hult to his dastardly crime as a slight recom- pense for tbe anguish of mind that he suffered through the false accusation.
