On Friday, the 10th of last month, the Archdeacon of Bangor held his visitation in the Church Hon-? for the admission to office of the Churchwardens and Sidesmen, of the Parish, of Llan¬ dudno. The Court was opened at 6 p.m. in the Church House, when the Church¬ wardens and Sidesmen made their de¬ clarations and signed the roll. At 7 o'clock there was a service and seimon in Holy Trinity Church, when the Arch¬ deacon preached a very effective and practical sermon on "The duty and im¬ portance of Church Extension and Church Progress," based on Isaiah liv. 2. "Enlarge the place of thy tent and let. them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations, spare not, lengthen thy cords and strengthen thy stakes. After the service the Clergy, Church¬ wardens and Sidesmen dined together at Lockyer's Hotel. The Rector presided, and gave a resume of the work done dur¬ ing the past year, and gave an outline of what was contemplated in the future. He emphasised what the Archdeacon had said with regard to the work of Church Extension, and showed how it was pos¬ sible to effect a great deal, without placing undue burden on any person ; by all co¬ operating and each one doing a little according to his ability. The Rector pro¬ posed the toast of the Church and King, which was responded to by the Arch¬ deacon, Dr. Dalton. Mr Conway and Dr. Richards. Dr. Kendrick Davies pro¬ posed the health of the Rector and Mrs Hughes, and in replying the Rector drew attention to the excellent and unselfish work in the service of the Church clone by many of the lady members of the Church 'in the Parish. Then followed an excellent programme of music, and a verv pleasant evening was spent. * * * ST. GEORGES CHURCH ORGAN, Etc. In the course of last month, the "Kinetic Electric Organ Blower." which is now used for blowing some of the most important, organs in the country, includ¬ ing those of Worcester Cathedral, and that of the Royal College of Organists, has been attached to the organ of St. George's Church. The cost, with minor repairs to the organ, will be about £75, nearly the whole of which as can be seen from the list given below has been collected. The congregation worshipping in St. George's Church are under grea.t obligations to the subscribers for their generous contributions, and also to the collectors" Mrs LI. Hughes, Miss B. Mather, Miss E. Fel'ton, and Messrs C. H. Bevan and J. II. Hornsby for their successful efforts.
