ENTRANCE SCHOLARSHIPS.—There was an unusually large number of candibates for the entrance examination to the County School last Saturday, and to some of the juvenile candidates the examination was fraught with tearful anxiety on account of the stiffness of some of the subjects. The papers were on the whole quite out of the recognised local Z75 rut, they occasioned comment and not a little surprise among the head teachers. For in- stance in the general knowledge paper, six questions had to De answered. Three kinds of trees had to be named and the particular use to which the wood was put. Then the pupils must either have swallowed a rail- way guide or travelled from Fishguard Harbour to Milford Haven both via Clar- beston Road and Maenclochog respectively. Then the children were supposed to state the cost of sending a letter and card by post to Dublin, Marseilles, Melbourne, Toronto, Chicago, and Bombay. To know also the terms of Lord Chancellor, Colonial Confer- ence, Welsh Church Commission, and House of Peers—there is a story connected with the latter of a dialogue between a headmaster and pupil after the examination.—L.L.D., O.M. and R.A.—About bird's eggs most Z, school boys would be able to give details when the young ones leave, or are taken from, their nests but how many boys and girls are familiar with Shakespeare's plays ? Then in regard to geography the paper was a severe one. Arithmetic was none to easy, but the English was fairly plain sailing. How many passed ? SEWERAGE DISPOSAL.- Some very import- ant subjects in the matter of public health were discussed at the Royal Institute of Health Congress held last week at the Isle of Man. Everyone of the subjects touched upon deserve insertion in every local newspaper in the kingdon. Interesting to the local Urban authority will be that of sewage disposal. In an able essay by Col Caldwell, F.R.C.S., R.A.M.C., read by Dr Cordiner, the essayist argued in favour of the extension of natural means of disposal- placing the sevage in trenches, as is done in some parts of India, and then covered with a layer of soil. This was found to be a most effective purifiei of -«\vage and was beneficial to the land itself. There could be 110 doubt, remarked thechair- mrn, that in rural districts the nai;ura;, of sew age disposal was the •: k eiie<~tive avid profitable T" -<3cm interesting fact i.u ijote near]) ail the artificial is were now coming bac1: to <(,e hJtiation.—In YIP"- of amnion, disgusting Lauu which, in part, pievaih in Fishguard of dumping offensive buckets full of sewage over the sides of the hill at Pentour and Penslade. The offensive practice is a menace to public health and should certainly be prohibited. There are some householders in Fishguard who have wisely practised, for years, disposing of sewage in the way recommended by the eminent essayist at the Medical Congress and have found It the most effective and cleanly. mode of any. There is nothing to equal soil for neutralising sewage however crude. Let the Fishguard Urban Authority accept the hint. PUISLIC HEALTH.—We are much indebted to one of our much esteemed medical gentle- men for an Isle of Man publication containing ample reports of the many excellent essays on public health matters.—Respecting measles which has depleted to some extent the schools. Dr Mason (Hull) thought, contrary to some of the doctors present that the closure of schools mitigated measles, but that it was hopeless to have any mitigation unless they remained closed for at least five weeks. If the younger children up to five years were excluded from school it would be a great advantage in reducing the necessity for school closure, both with regard to measles and scarlet fever. Dr Bucham argued that iso- lation hospitals would bring under control the huge epidemics sweeping through the country every three years.—Another valuable paper dealing with infantile mortality was read by Dr H a Pilkington, medical officer of health for Preston, Lancashire. Artificial feeding, said the doctor, is almost always fraught with danger to the child, not from neglect alone, but from ignorance and unclean- liness. Far more children were killed by mis- taken kindness, combined with ignorance, than by wilful neglect. The most hopeful sign was the education of girls in public schools. This education should be simple and practical, showing how a house should be cleaned and ventilated, how food should be cooked and economically bought, how infants should be nursed, fed and clothed, and in short how the important duties of a mother should be properly performed. Instruction of this kind given to the young would take root and in due course produce fruit.— Respecting the above it is greatly to be de- plored that in the majority of schools in this locality so much time is taken up, judiciously and otherwise, with matters that might come under the title superfluous." Little or no thought of moral or hygienic instruction is ever entertained. In the matter of personal cleanliness among children, who are victims of habit and environment, the teaching of such subjects as hygiene might seem unneces- sary, but those who are familiar with the con- ditions of some of the children know that it as urgent at the present day as ever it was.— One has only to enter a room full of children and adults to realise that the impurity of air is not due altogether to defective digestion, and the number of feverish colds contracted in such buildings is enormous.—More anon on this subject. A COWARDLY ACTo-In the early hours of Monday morning last certain residents in Lower Town were observed pilfering crabs from a store-box just outside the harbour, the property of some of their neighbours. One would hardly credit that anyone in the place -much less natives—would be dishonest enough to perform such an act, but their identity has been revealed to the owners of store-box and it is only sympathy with the families of the offenders that prevents a prose- cution this time. But there is a limit even to being sympathetic, and this the perpetrators of the offence will sooner or later come to realise. THE HEATHEN OF HAITI,—The Rev L Ton Evans, who made a tour recently of the Bap- tist Churches in Pembrokeshire, is still among the churches in Wales, speaking in behalf of the much-needed mission to the Black Republic. Speaking at Bethany, Treherbert, lie said that while at Tonypandy, Llwynypia, and Clydach Vale he had a very singular experience. In referring to the appalling need of Haiti, a brother came forward at the close of the service and gave an envelope, stating he had no money—not a penny for himself and wife. He had been on the sick-list and out of work. In giving the envelope he add- ed, God has commanded me to give you this." When the missioner looked at the envelope and opened it that evening lie found it contained a man's artificial teeth. MEASLES EI)IDE.NIIC.-It is reported that the epidemic of measles is diminishing which is something to be thankful for. This district is not the only one that has suffered through measles. At the Mountain Ash Education Committee on Thursday, Mr W M Davies presiding, a letter from Dr E P Evans was read recommending that the Navigation Infants School, Abercynon, should be closed for 14 days owing to an outbreak of measles. It was decided to act on the doctor's advice. —Fishguard is not built in the way of accept- ing medical advice it would seem. PROPERTY SALE.-I\Ir A. J. Hodges offered for sale on Thursday last at the Commercial Hotel the freehold dwelling house in Iligli- street, occupied by Mrs C. E. Slocombe. The house, which was erected only six years ago, is well and substantially built, and has a front- age of 20ft to the main road. Bidding open- ed at ^"350 rising by tens to £ "420 at which figure it was knocked down to Mr T. G. Bennett, J.P., Fontane House. Mr W J Vaughan, solicitor, acting for vendor and purchaser. PRUDENTIAL.—The annual dinner to the agents of the Prudential Assurance Company took place on Saturday last at the Castle Hotel, Haverfordwest, Mr J Howarth, J.P., presiding. After the substantial amenities had been enjoyed and the cloth removed the King and Royal Family was proposed by Mr J Howarth heartily received. Mr D Evans gave the Prudential' the Inspector respond- ing. Mr Howarth gave The Haverfordwest District,' and Mr Evans responded. Assist- int Superintendants" was given by Mr D Randall, Pembroke Dock, and acknowledged )y Messrs W. Bowen, Milford, and J. Rees, Fishguard. The Agents was submitted jy Mr D. Evans, and responded to by Messrs H. Davies, H. S. Thomas, C. Reed, J. Wilson, E. T. Sidda!l, J. M. Lewis, and Thomas Thomas. The visitors and medical refer- ees" were responded to by Dr J. H. H. Wil- liams. The concluding toast was the Inspect- or who responded appropriately. A verv pleasant afternoon was spent. S. P. C. K.—Last Sunday morning the offertorvat the Parish Church was devoted to the Society for promoting Christian Know- ledge in foreign parts. In an able discourse the Vicar referred to the work carried on abroad, and used the words of a well-known authority that although for seven years not a single student convert had been made to Christianity yet the good was not wholly lost. Good would eventually be the germin- ating seed to righteousness. There was nothing more certain in this world. FARMS SALE.— Land and other property continue to realise good prices in North Pem- brokeshire. Messrs John Francis and Son, Carmarthen, sold by auction at the Commer- cial Hotel, Fishguard, on Thursday two valuable freehold farms. I here was a crowd- ed attendance, and bidding was spirited. Blaenpalis Farm, distant about I} miles from Puncheston Station, with buildings and land, 94a ir 26p, held by Mr John Nicholas as yearly tenant at the annual rental of ^32 10s, the tenant paying all rates and taxes except the income tav and tithes, was secured by Mr 1, Williams, Ccfnydre, Fishguard, for Mr Thomas Nicholas, of Bryn-Nante, for £975. Bryn-Nanie Farm, adjoining Lot 1, with buildings, and 37a ir ip of land, held by Mr Thomas Nicholas, at the annual rental of fg 10s, the tenant paying all rates and taxes, was purchased for the present tenant for C400. HOLIDAY.—Paying his usual holiday visit is the Rev Evan Williams, curate of the Welsh Church, Liverpool. Mr Williams will preach in the several churches during his stay. RURAL DEANERY.—At a well-attended ruri- decanal chapter the following were appointed to represent the Fishguard Rural Deanery at the Church Conference The Rectors of Let- terston, Jordanston, Pontvane, Mathry, St. Dogwells, St. Nicholas, and Llanstinan the lay representatives are Messrs J C Yorke, Col. Porter, T G Bennett, V J Higgon, Davies, M Mathias, M Hale, M Perkins. The Rural Dean (Rev W Evans) and the Vicar of Llan- wnda are ex-officio members. The Rector of Letterston was ppointed on the Archiadia- conal Committee for church buildings, to- gether with Mr J C Yorke and Mr V J Higgon. The Rural Dean was appointed representative on the Diocesan Board of Association of Schools. DEATH.—W e very much regret to nnnounee the death at Hotupass-street, of Mrs Martha Johni, the beloved mother of Mr David Johns, cor. tractor, which sad event took place yester- day fWednesdi.y) after a comparatively brief —J. nc- muc'. sadder because of 'lie 1;reparable lu^s it witi cause the in"nle- daughter, who has never been from her mother's care, although having attained maturity.—We deeply sympathise with those in sorrow. HERMON.—On Sunday next, Mr J V Morris, of Cardiff Baptist College, will officiate at Her- mon Chapel. BETHEL.—The quarterly meeting was held last Sunday of Bethel English Baptist Sunday School, when lie superintendant (Mr J. Rees) introduced the sewly appointed pastor, who gave trite advise to the children suitable to the bccasion. A very enjoyable programme was gone through, the following taking part:— Llwyd Williams, Valirie Thomas, Mattie Thomas, May Maurice, E J Watts, Oswald Avres, Bessie Harries, May Williams, John Griffiths, Mary Evans, Sarah Reynolds, Bessie Williams, Eurfryn H. Rees, Ray Harries, Carrie Burnnand, Edith Harries, Lilian Edwards and May Burnnand. LET DOGS DELIGHT To BARK AND BITE. Singular to state hardly had the court at the Market Hall settled the case of causing two dogs to fight than the self-same tykes were en- gaged in a terrific combat in High-street. As soon as they met they were at each others throats like veritable demons. One dog was held up bodily by a spectator anxious to separate the infuriated pugnacious brutes, but the other held on tenaciously. At length both dogs were seized in a tug-of-war fashion and with a long pull and a strong pull they let go their holds with a chorous of yelps and the laughter of the crowd, the situation being very amusing. In tussles of the kind between dogs of equal strength there is generally more bark than bite. Two prize-fighting men inflict more damage upon each other in a third the time than it takes two such canines. THE FISHGUARD HILL.- According to the South Wales Daily News of Wednesday the only reason that the Great Western Railway Company have not yet started their motor service between Cardigan and St. David's ap- pears to be the existence of the two hills at Fishguard, which, from the point of view of gradient, eclipse all other hills in South Wales, and are only approached by the hill on the North Devon coast leading from Porlock west- ward on the Lynton road.—Surely here is an in- centive to those interested in the motor service to join with the few promoters of the sdene to divert the steep hill to Dinas. It is a project worthy of the most generous support from all classes of the people who desire the welfare and progress of North Pembrokeshire.—At last Tues- day's meeting of the Main Roads Committee, Mr W L Williams ag^in brought the question of the diversion of the Dinas hill forward, and was successful in getting the Committee to appoint a sub-committee to visit the spot in conjunction with sub-committees from the Fishgnard Urban Council, and Newport and Dinas Parish Councils. Those appointed by the Main Roads Committee were Mr Walter L. Williams, Col. Philipps, Dr Griffiths, Messrs E Robinson, James Harries and H A Williams, Letterston.—We understand that the joint meet- ing will be held all Saturday, July 20th, and it I is sincerely hoped that a definite course of action I will be decided upon. I PROPERTY SALES.—On Friday and Saturday, August 2nd and 3rd, Mr W R Carver will con- duct important sales of property situated in Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire, at Whit- land and Carmarthen respectiuely. FUNERAi.Tlie mortal remains of the late Mr William Rowe, of Penwallis, vicre interred on Friday last in Hermon Cemetery, amidst manifestations of sorrow and regret, the Rev D P David, the pastor-elect of Bethel Church, offi- ciated very impressively.
-------Did You Hear!I
Did You Hear! That the epidemic which has been pieval- ent in the district for some weeks past is gradually diminishing. That all admit that the schools should have been closed in the earlier stages of the fever. That plenty of fine wcdtliex is the remedy That the Goodwick eisteddfod was a capital success from every standpoint. That the proposed change in the half-day closing—like everything else in the town- has caused discontent. That Sunday is now likely to be the only day on which tne whole of the shops will be closed. That if this is brought about, some good will have resulted. That dog fighting should be prohibited in the streets. 1 hat the practice, whether intentionally 01 not, is now becoming too common aid those owning dogs of fighting tendencies should b b b b have them muzzled or chained. pRo BONO PUBLICO.

DIRECTORS. —On Sunday night a party of directors of the Great Western Rail- way Company arrived at Newport from Lon- don. On Monday they left by special -train on an inspection of the Monmouthshire lines. They proceeded up the Eastern Valley as far as Blaenavon, and returned to Pontypool, subsequently crossing to Crumlin and pro- ceeding up the Western and Sirhowy Valleys. Z, Stops were made on the wav for the purpose of inspection. 1 SOCCER FOOTBALL.— The officers and men of the 2nd Wiltshire Regiment have decided to present a shield for competition amongst junior Association football teams in Pem- brokeshire. It will he known as the Wilt- shire Challenge Shield, and will be competed for annually by players of 17 years and under. The Wiltshire Regimental we're the champion Association players in Pembrokeshire during last season. They won the Owen Philipps' Cup, the Pembrokeshire League Cup, and the Junior South Wales and Monmouthshire Association Cup. The shield is being pre- sented to encourage Association football amongst juveniles. MARRIAGE.—Early on Monday morning, very quietly Mr G Wrilliams, third son of Mr and Mrs Wm Williams, Pentop, was united in the holy bonds of matrimony to Miss Rachel Evans, daughter of Mr and Mrs Evans, Clynderwen, at the Baptist Chapel, Goodwick, by the Rev J S Davies, pastor. Miss Griffiths, Rose & Crown, was the brides- maid, and Mr W Williams (brother) acted as hest man. After the ceremony guns were fired, and there was general rejoicing. The party repaired to the bridegroom's home, where a sumptuous breakfast was partaken of. We wish bride and bridegroom success and happiness in the future. A BIG BLAZE.—All day last Sunday and during the night the Cw, north of the wind guage blazed away with tremendous vigour, the furze emitting dense clouds of smoke, which settled over the bay like a fog bank. A bigger blaze has seldom been witnessed. NEW POLICE STATION.—It is "hard lines" on P.S. Lewis, who, according to the report of the Standing Joint Committee, was singled out for duty at Goodwick because he was a specially good man, to have to pay rent at the rate of 10s per week simply owing to being promoted to Goodwick. Much surprise is naturally ex- pressed that the popular Sergeant is out of pocket, compared with other officers of similar rank in the county. Surely, if other Sergeants have houses found for them at the cost of the county, P.S. Lewis ought to receive similar treatment, and the sooner the Standing Joint Committee Fealise this the better everyone will be pleased. The sub-committee which recently met at Goodwick to consider the question of a site for the erection of a lock-up recommended a site to the Standing Joint Committe, which it was to purchase. The site recommended is in close proximity to Goedwig Baptist Chapel, having a frontage of 46ft. The site was offered the committee by Mr A. B. Williams, solicitor, on behalf of a client, the price being £3 per foot. THE NEW TUNNEL.Drim would seem to be built upon an impregnable rock, judging by the impenetrability of the strata through which the new tunnel is being bored by the G.W.R. Co. Mr A. O. Robins, has the work in hand and from all appearances the job is a tough one. It is understood that the rock is as hard as the notorious gold cutting" in the Treffgarne valley—the spot which delayed for some time the construction of the new double line. Steam driven drills are in operation, but their points are often-blunted by contact with flinty rock. THE COMMON-LAND QUESTION.—Absorbing interest is evinced in the question of the common-land and the probable result of the summons heard at Mathry Petty Sessions on Friday last. The question is a vexed one and most people will hail a satisfactory solut- ion with gratitude. A Law-Book," pub- lished in 1835 say's Right of common is a privilege by which a person claims to use what another man's lands, woods, or waters pjoduce, without having an absolute property therein. The property of the soil of the com- mo:\ is entirely, in the lord, and the use of it I jointly with him and the commoner, and the respective rights of the lord and commoner arc ascertained by statute and usage. In subject to common right, the right of the lord of the soil ought to be so exercised as not to injure the right of the commoner to the surface. But the right of the commoner may be subservient to the rights of the lord; so that the lord may dig clay pits there without leaving sufficient herbage for the commoner, if such a right can be proved to have been constantly exercised. Further items of interest are The lord of the manor may enclose part of the waste whereb^it ceases being common provided he leaves sufficient waste for the commoner. The lord has no right to enclose- and improve the waste of the manor. A commoner has only a special and limited interest in the soil, yet he has remedies com- mensurate to his right. By 13 George 3, c. 81, in every parish where there are common fields, all the arable land shall be cultivated by the occupiers, under such rules as three- fourths of them in number shall agree to, the expense to be borne proportionately. Lords of manors, with the consent of three fourths of the commoners, may lease for not more than four years, any part of the waste not exceeding one-twelfth part, and the clear rents reserved for the same shall be applied in improving the residue of such waste. Com- mons must be drawn every Michaelmas." BERACHAH.-Over £ 40 were added to the funds of Berachah Chapel as the result of the successful eisteddfod on Wednesday of last week. The date of opening is fixed for the first Wednesday in August. The beautiful edifice will form a a monument to the inde- fatigable energy of the revered pastor, the Rev. J. D. Symons, Messrs. D. Hughes- Griffiths, A. G. Lewis, and the devoted band of workers whose co-operation and steadfast- ness have surmounted hugf difficulties. ILLNESS.—Everyone, without exception will regret to know that Miss Jenkins of Drim, one of the truest and most earnest workers at Berachah, is in somewhat delicate health. May that good Samaritan quickly recover is the earnest wish of all. ACCIDENT.—Whilst carrying out blasting operations on the Harbour Works on Monday afernooIl last, Mr. Lewis Lewis, of Llanychare received rather severe injuries through being struck by some stones from a blast. He was at once medically attended and afterwards conveyed home where he is gradually re- covering. CONCFRT riie eisteddfod concert on Wednesday evening of last week was attend- ed by a very large audience and proved a musical treat of the lirst order. Mr. E. D. Jones, J. P., presided with his customary tact. Part 1. of the programme was opened by a well executed pianoforte solo by Miss Olive Hughes, as was also part 11., by Miss Mary Hughes (the two bright daughters of Mr. & Mrs. Hughes, Glanymor). The distinguished artistes taking part were Miss Maud Parsons, Cardiff soprano; Miss Winnie Stephens, Llan- stephan, contralto; Mr. W. J. Samuel, Swan- sea, baritone; and Mr. J. H. Roberts, Swan- sea, tenor all of whom fully maintained their excellent reputation. I he accompanist was Mr David Thomas, Mus. Bac., the able musical adjudicator at the eisteddfod in the afternoon. All concerned are deserving of the highest praise for the successful result of their labours in aid of the good cause at Berachah. & ACKNOWLEDGMENT.—Mr and Mrs Thomas, of the Laundry Cottage, desire to express their heartfelt thanks for all the kindnesses shewn them by their numerous friends, both at Goodwick and Fishguard, in their deep sorrow by the sickness and loss of two of their beloved children. The sincere and practical sympathy extended them 0:1 every side is most gratefully appreciated. HARBOUR PARS. There is a constantly increasing number of passengers by the new and shortest route to Ireland which is very gratifying to the Com- pany and well-wishers alike. Operations are in progress 011 the weather side of the break- water making it more secure against the ravages of storm and tide. A smoker was held at the Reading room last Monday when the Rugby fifteen were presented with silver medals as the second team in the West of Llanelly League.
