LOCAL SIFTINGS. .8.. The funeral of General Sir Frederick Fores- tier-Walker, who died at Tenby last week, took place at Bushey, Herts, on Saturday. Visitors to London will find excellent accom- modation at the NORFOLK SQUARE HOTEL," just opposite the arrival platform at Paddington Station. Moderate Tariff. Night Porter. ââ The BELGRAVE HOTEL, Esplanade, Tenby, is now replete with every convenience and accom- modation for visitors. Tariff upon application to Manageress. Miss Alico Davies, of Houghton, Carew, a pupil at the Tenby County School, has passed the Matriculation Examination of the Univer- sity of Wales. This is the fourth success at University Matriculation obtained this summer. â â¦â¦â¦ At a preliminary meeting in connection with the new Ten by Ratepayers' Association, held last (Wednesday) night, Mr Lawfurd Evans, Malvern House, Esplanade, was suggested as first chairman. One section of the delegates at Blaenanerch Sassiwn spent the evenings discussing ghosts, corpse caudles, and other weird superstitions. A well-known Pembrokeshire minister was the only unbeliever in these things in the group. Mr Ernest W. James, the popular manager of the Do Valence Gardens during his brother's (Mr Sydney James) season, will take his annual benefit next Wednesday night, for which occa- y 11 sion a very attractive programme has been arranged. $-4-9 Under the heading of "What of Tenby?" a correspondent signing himself "Starved Tripper," writes on Monday to the South Wales Daily Neivs: Has 'Salopiati' ever visited Ten by ? Impossible. Has any tripper ever found a restaurant in Tenby or had a cup of tea there at a reasonable price ? On Tuesday afternoon while the steamer Bonahaven was unloading coal in Tenby Har- bour a cart and horse belonging to Mr George Thomas, New Hedges, went backwards and fell on to the deck of the boat. Fortunately neither cart nor horse received any injury, the latter, under the direction of Mr Robert Rogers, being very skilfully extricated from its uncom- fortable position in the gangway between the bulwarks and the railing round the hold. ⢠The well-known yacht Condor, belonging to Lieutenant Chadwick, R.N., which has been laid up in Tenby Harbour for the past two seasons, is to be sold without reserve by Mr F. B. Mason, auctioneer, alongside the craft on Saturday, September 10th, at 3.30 p.m., as her owner, having left Tenby, has no further use for her. The Condor won several prizes at different regattas in the Bristol Channel, and her sale will afford a good opportunity for securing a safe, comfortable and well-found cruiser at a low price. The yacht and inventory of stores can be viewed by arrangement with the Auctioneer. But for an occasional day (says a writer in last week's Welshman) when the suns tips everything with gold for six or seven hours at a stretch, it might be said that recent weather here has been the reverse of cheerful. On a few occasions it drizzled steadily from morning to night, and oftener than not the dry days have been gloomy, threatening, and very windy. Christmas Day has often been more inviting, for the winter climate at Ten by is nearly always sweet and mild to a degree unknown inland, as many bronchitic patients are thankful to know." â¦â¦â¦ â The sound of the old Bristish tongue is rather a rarity on Ten by sands, but it is all the more welcome when it does assert itself. There was such an occasion last Friday when the Blaenconin and Gelly Baptist Sunday-schools came by train from Clynderwen for a day trip to the seaside. The party num- bered something like 320, as about 250 came from Blaenconin and probably 70 from Gelly. A great proportion of the pleasure-seekers was made up of youngsters, who scrambled over the rocks, and romped about the beach to their hearts' content, giving fluent expression all the while to their happiness in pure Cymraeg, which a lady visitor from Nottingham mistook for German. +++--â In aid of the Rowland Hill Benevolent Fund, which succours Post Office widows and orphans, a concert and limelignt view entertainment will take place in the Royal Gate House Assembly Rooms, Tenby, on Tuesday, Sep- tember 13th. Part one will consist of a hundred "Post Office Pictures" of a romantic, witty, pathetic, adventurous and humorous character, while the second half will be devoted to a programme contributed to by well-known local artistes. Tickets (2s., Is., and 6d.), may be obtained at the local Post Office or from members of the staff; also at the doors. Re- served seats can be booked at the Box Office of the De Valence Gardens, whilst purchasers of 2s. tickets from other sources can mark off their seats on the plan there. Mr Albert Chevalier and his company will pay a visit to the Royal Gate House Assembly Rooms, lenby, on Saturday evening, when he wiH present a special programme.0 Referring to Mr Chevalier's appearance before his latt) Majesty, the Daily Telegraph said It is not without interest to note that Mr Chevalier's appearance at Sandringham House last night was designed by the King as a pleasant surprise for Queen Alexandra. The fact that the enter- tainment was to be given was kept a secret almost to the last moment, and it may well be that the enjoyment it afforded the Royal Audience was none the less keen on that account. At any rate, Mr Chevalier was de- lighted with the reception he met with. An audience assembled in a private house, it is well known, rarely inspires an artist, but for once in a way the general rule seems to have been broken. There was nothing to discourage the performer on this occasion, the attitude of those before whom he was summoned to appear being one of manifest appreciation. It is, perhaps" permissible to add in this connection that the xv n1 TaS Parti°ularly struck by Kaiser \\ilhelms intimate knowledge of colloquial English, as repeatedly shown by His Majesty's enjoyment of songs, the whole point of which would be missed by anybody less closely con- versant with our language. Certain it is that the Emperor laughed as heartily as any of the kings guests at what was mirth-provokincr in the programme. But in two of his item! a monologue presenting a broken-down French tiddler and another introducing an old-timo actor who has seen better days, Mr Chevalier struck a note of pathos, and in this particular mood was no less successful in winning his audience's applause than he was in the inter- pretation of such light-hearted ditties as that 'T,h,e Future Mrs 'Awkins,' and Mafekin Night.
