TWO DAYS' BAZAAR AT BARRY DOCKS. TO REDUCE THE DEBT ON HOLTON- ROAD BAPTIST CHAPEL. Holton-road English Baptist Chapel, Barry Docks, had its origin in 1892. Since that period over £4,500 has been spent in various ways for church buildings and extensions, the rapid growth of the congregation being remarkable and unique amongst the religious movements of the town. The present fine commodious building cost £3,800, and to-day there remaius a debt of £2,800 thereon, which the respected pastor (the Rev T.Pandy John, and Church members, with great faith and zeal, are making a noble effort to liquidate. With this object in view a grand Bazaar was opened at the Schoolroom on Wednesday last. For weeks, aye months, the members of the Church-the ladies especially—had toiled with unabated energy and willingness to endeavour to crown the event with success, and as the result the Schoolroom on Wed- nesday afternoon was occupied by heavily-laden stalls. Well arranged, decorated with artistic taste, and bearing an abundant quantity of useful and fancy articles, the miniature business places proved very attractive and tempting to a large proved very attractive and tempting to a large number of visitors. A feature of the Bazaar was the excellent musical entertainments, given under the direction of Mr F. Farr. A splendid programme of instrumental and vocal selections was rendered by Mr W. D. Cornwall and Party, Penarth Madam Alliene, Barry Miss Arthur, Penarth; and others. The Barry Dock Male Voice Party, con- ducted by Mr D. J. Thomas, and the Church Choir, also sang several beautiful choruses. Much interest and amusement was created by the hat- trimming, potatoe peeling, and nail-driving com- petitions. The bill of fare at the refreshment stall was a very tempting one, and was well patronised. At the opening ceremony on Wednesday after- noon there was a large attendance. The Rev T. Pandy John read a letter from Mr J. A. Manaton, J.P., chairman of the Barry District Council, expressing inability to be present, and enclosing a donation of P,5 5s. In the absence of Mr Manaton, the Rev Ben Evans (Tabernacle) occupied the chair. A hymn was sung, and Alderman the Rev D. H. Williams, M.A., offered an earnest prayer. The Chairman paid a gratifying tribute to the spiritual zeal displayed by the pastor and members of the church, and expressed a hope that the bazaar would prove a great financial success.-In a few well-chosen remarks, Mrs K. Walter Morgan. Forest House, Pontypridd, then declared the bazaar to be open.-In proposing a vote of thanks to Mrs Morgan, who was accompanied by Miss Morgan, the Rev T. Pandy John said this was not the first visit of this respected lady to Barry, Mrs Morgan having laid one of the foundation stones of that building. When the contract was signed for the erection of the building, the South Wales coal strike set in, and for six months they were under a dark cloud. However, Providence had been with them through- out.—Mr E. A. Mathews seconded, and the vote was accorded with acclamation, Mrs Morgan being afterwards presented with a handsome bouquet by Master W. Gardner.-The Chairman having been also thanked, the bazaar was opened.
