BAZAAR AT CARDIFF. I HAPPY REPRESENTATION OF THE SEASONS. The Evangelisation ofSalunead. j There was opened at the iown Hall, Carnitt, f this afternoon, a bazaar, in which are introduced numerous pleasing and novel features, many of them being locally unique. The object ot the affair is to raise money to pay off a sum of £100 outstanding in connection with the Clare-roid Mission established by the members of Charles street Congregational Church, and to enable the committee to undertake the evangelising of a j wider area—a much needed work in the Saltmoa.d (iistriet-and possibly to form the nucleus of a fund for the erection of a church in place of the present building, which has fo- some time past proved far too small for the conduct of the various services and meetings of the several organizations initiated. The title chosen—The Seasons Bazaar I —was appropriate, the stalls having been taste- fully designed to give a happy representation of the four seasons, and the articles displayed on them were in evry case fittingly chosen, while ttie drawback to the majority of such events in the crowding of purely ornamental articles to the disadvantage of the realty useful was strictly and fortunately avoided by the promoters. Spring" was the "arts" stall, and on it was displayed paintings (in oils and water colours), often of real merit, photographs, carved wvod work, tapestry, china ware, furniture, and brass work the prices asked at this, as at all the other stalls, being extremely moderate. Its main contributors and managers were Miss Atinie Evans (secreaary), Miss Stallybrass, the Misses M. Lipscomb, P. Hailey, and A. Davies, Mrs E. C. Cooper, and Miss Holder, Prof. Conway, Capt. Price, Mr S. G. Fiioot, and Mr F. Ware. Then came the Sunday School stall, the varied furnishing of "SLilyirer" being given by the scholars and officers of the Charles-road and Clare- road mission. Direct supervision of the exhibits was undertaken by Mrs Hardie, Mrs P. Lewis, Miss M. Lewis, Miss Leslie, Miss Cook, Miss Ridler, Miss Hardie, Miss E. Jenkins, Miss George, Miss Faulke, Messrs W. H. Elliott, J. G. Murychurch, W. Broben, G. B. Calway, and Miss Hardie and Mr M. Roberts (combined secretaries). Best of the supporters of the mission since its establishment have been the members of the Charles-street Sewing Society, whose contri- bution has reached JE50 a year, and they have admirably clothed the 3tall woll representing the autumnal season. All the ladies of the society merit thanks for their efforts, as all have given assistance in the making, though the selling is being conducted mostly by Mrs Barter, Mrs Blrt, Mrs H. P. Verney, Mrs Williamson, Mrs D. Roberts, Mrs Lipscomb, and Mrs Price. Winter," the stall of the gentlemen from Charles-street, is a distinct success. It is a typical Whitelev's," fancy and handy articles of almost every conceivable size crowding what is not inappropriately termed an emporium." The direct manag?nent is in the hands of Messrs W. Hall, T. F. Williams, S. M. Wilkin. son, G. S. Ware, W. J. Rigby, J. F. Kemp, W. H. Maton, and A. Lewis, the stall secretary. One of the prettiest features is the flower stall, which has been fitted up delightfully as a fairy bower. It is constructed of trellis work, covered with variegated and entwining ivy leaves, with pretty gabled roof, and is superintended by Mr and Mrs T. J. Williams. Mrs Fifoot, Miss M. Jones, Miss K. D,tvi eT, Miss Hughes, Mr A. Montgomery, Miss Johnstone, Miss H. C. Cooper, and Miss Ldith Cooper (secretary). An instance of the practical charactet of the saleable goods is giue-n by the presence of a dairy stall, at which Miss Beatrice M. Baxter, Miss Ida Daw, and Mrs F. C. Verney preside. Eggs, butter, cheese, cream, junket, poultry may all be obtained from here. A cafe and refretiimenb stall is amply stocked and looked after bv Mrs Turner. Mrs David, Mrs D. Lewis, Mrs Hall, Mrs M. Roberts, Miss K. Lipscomb, Miss J. Waite (secretary), assisted by the Misses Ada Evans, Violet Hailey, and Mabel Seward. There are also to be found the attractions common to all bazaars, such as the galvanic battery, weighing maohines, parcel offices, &c., but mention is deserved of a capitally constructed fish pond," the water bailiffs" being the Misses Lilian Cooper, Madge Lewis, Hilda Seward, and Lily Banting. Prof. Newton is in charge of the palmistry tent, and from the start was kept fully occupied. The hon. seoretnries are Mr S. M. Wilkinson and the Misses B. M. Barter and A. Davies, and they discharged their multifarious duties in admirable j fashion. An Interesting brochure prepared by Mr Wilkinson is on sale at a modest price, and it sketches the history of the growth of the Congre- gational cause in Cardiff, as well as being a com- plete guide to the bazaar. The opening ceremony was to-day performed by Mr Sidney Robinson, with whom were the Revs. J. Williamson (pastor of Charles-street Congregational Church), John Morris (Star- street), and Daniel Lewis. This evening popular entertainments will be given at intervals, includ- ing the playing of a farce entitled, "Peculiar Proposals," and a performance by St. Catherine's Lady Minstrels. To-morrow the opening will be performed by Councillor J. Ramsdale, J.P., at 2 o'clock.
