Sunday School Day.


Sunday School Day. LLANDRINDOD OUTINGS. I After several unavoidable and unfortu- nate postponements, the Sunday school treats in connection with the Presbyterian, Baptist, and Congregational schools took place on Wednesday, when the weather was somewhat showery and fickle, marring the pleasure and suc- cess of these annual events. The Baptist scholars and friends bad tea at the Tabernacle schoolroom, sub- sequently adjourning to Trefonen fields, where games, sports, and competitions were indulged in. A very pleasant three hours were spent, but rain came on and necessitated an abandonment of the fun earlier than would otherwise have been the case. Before leaving, the children were regaled with oranges, bananas and sweets. The Presbyterian scholars and friends assembled at the Emporium Restaurant instead of at Baileyeinon farm, and a splendid tea was provided by the Emporium management. After tea, and adjournment was made to a field kindly lent by Mr T. Matthews, butcher, and races, games, &c., were indulged in till rain necessitated a retirement to the Empor- ium, where a further period was spent in in-door games. The CongregationaJ Church Sunday school ori- ginally intended to hold the outing this year at Dolberthog, but, owing to the inclement weather, the tea, given by Mr D. C. Davies (superinten- dent) and Mrs Davies, was held in the Central Hotel, through the kindness of Mr and Mrs Rees Jones. A large number of scholars and friends were present, and a curtailed programme of sports were held at Rliydllyndu, the principal winners be- ing :—50 yards, girls under 8-1, G.
