ADMIRALTY TO TAKE OVER PATER BATTERY FORT.—The staff of the Milford Haven Submarine Mining Engineer Militia, which have their headquarters at Pater Battery, Pembroke Dock, have received orders to vacate the Pater Battery Fort as soon as possible. Pater Battery was built as an artillery fort, and some years ago access was gained to the dockyard by a door- way from the interior of the building, but the above entrance has for many years been closed up. The fort, which is to the extreme west of the dockyard building slips, and in close proximity to the new jetty works, now in course of erection by Messrs Pethick, contractors, Plymouth, is obsolete. It is rumoured in dockyard circles that the site of the present fort will be required for the building of a new dry dock. MARRIAGE OF A POPULAR PHRENOLOGIST AND LECTURER.—On Thursday, September 1st., a quiet and pretty wedding took place near Haverfordwest, in the old parish church of Camrose, between Prof. W. A. Williams, F.N.P.I., London, and Miss Lizzie Morgan, youngest daughter of Mr Thomas Morgan, Pelcomb, Haverfordwest. The bride, charmingly attired in a lovely gown of heliotrope silk trimmed with chiffon, and a pretty white picture hat trimmed with plumes and orange blossom, entered the church accompanied by her brother, Mr Phillip Morgan, who gave her away. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. W. A. Tute, M.A., vicar of Camrose. After lunchcon the bride and bride- groom left for London en 7'o?c for Brighton, where the honeymoon is being spent. The bride's travelling dress was a coat and skirt of apple-green cloth trimmed with white silk. There were many useful and costly presents. THE FAIR.—Tuesday's was a small fair on the whole, due no doubt to the fact that a similar fair was being held at St. Clear's. There was a fairly good show of cattle, but the prices were low. The smaller the quality the better the prices. Fat cattle brought good prices. In sheep, the ewes fetched a few shillings a head more than last year, and trade was fairly brisk. Lambs brought Gid per lb. Mr W. D. Edwards and Mr Thomas realised good prices for pedigree ram lambs and ewes, and a fairly large quantity were sold. There was a good supply of horses of all kinds, but there were few buyers. Suckling colts sold fairly well, cobs were very low, and the prices for cart horses were quite up to the average. There was a strong call for the latter, but the supply was limited. ALLEGED THEFT OF A PAIR OF BOOTS. — At the Shire Hall, yesterday (Tuesday) morning, before Messrs T. James, and T. L. James—James Kelly was charged by Edward Connel, of the Kilns, with stealing a pair of boots, value 2s.-Prosecutor said he had been living in the town for over two years, but did not know defendant until last year. He missed the boots on Sun- day morning, and defendant must have taken them from underneath the bed, because he remembered seeing them there on Wednesday and Thursday. He did not see defendant steal them, however, but he observed them on defendant's feet in his house on Sunday morning. The following day (Monday) he had been out breaking stones all day, and when he came home about ten minutes to six o'clock, defendant was standing outside on the Kilns, and before he (prosecutor) could reach his door, defendant had him by the throat. He remarked to the defendant that as soon as he had finished with him, he should give him in charge for stealing the boots. Defendant, in reply, said he would give him a shilling for the boots.—Defendant said he paid paosecutor a shilling for the boots.—P.S. Phillips said that about 6.30 on Monday evening he met the defendant with the boots in question on his feet, and he charged him with the theft. Defendant then said he would reserve his defence. —The Chairman The Magistrates consider the evidence insufficient to convict. The boots were, therefore, returned to Kelly.
