NEWPORT. PEM A Miraculous Escape. I.ast Saturday even- ing Mr j J Brown's pron-isloii cart was at Par- rog on its round of delivery in charge of Evan Evans, who was accompanied by Mr Tucker's ten-year-old son, a sharp intelligent boy. When by the Bay View Hotel the marc was pulled up while some parcels were being handed out of the cart. Meanwhile the mare, a spirited one, commenced to graze near by the cliff, some fifteen feet high, when some- one came up to seize the rein. Immediately the mare commenced to back and next moment horse and cart were over the cliff on the rocks below. Seeing the danger the bov leapt out just in time to avert what seemed likely to become a fatality. The driver, and Mr Evans who lives at Bay View expected to find the horse fatally injured, but it struggled to its feet and was found almost unhurt, except for a slight scratch between the fore legs. Both shafts were broken as well as one of the springs and the harness. In all prob- ability the harness and cart saved the animal while the boy possessed an inordinate amount of the instinct of self-preservation. He is to be congratulated on his fortunate escape. Stealing Workhouse Uniform.—On Satur- day evening last P.C. Morgan observed a St. Dogmael's Workhouse pauper rambling about the ancient borough and charged him with absconding with the Union clothes. The man named David Phillips admitted the facts and on Sunday P.C. Morgan took him to Cardigan in custody.— On Monday, before the Mayor of Cardigan, Phillips was sentenced to a month's hard labour. Respecting the Union an ironical poet compiled the follow- ing Three cheers for ths Union, boys Hoo-ray for the Union With its shelter for all, irrespective of class, And its smart suit of grey with the button of brass— Hi, Hi, for the Union. PLUCKY RESCUK.—The young lad Sidney Jenkins, of Mount Plecisant Farm, Cowbridge, who was taken to the Accident Hospital after being rescued on Wednesday of last week, was discharged from the institution on Saturday. The name of his brave rescuer has been ascertained to be William Stanley Jones, of Porthkerry-road, Barry, who, in order to get into the water without the ex- tra weight of his boots, cut the laces down with a knife, and pulled Jenkins by the arm to shallow water, where the great weight told upon him, and other assistance bad to be procured. The circumstances have been reported to the District Council, which body will probably recognise the brave conduct of young Jones.—The gallant young rescuer, Stanley Jones, is the grandson of Mr Evan Jones, Spring Hill Terrace, Newport. Newport Preferred.—Ms. Ben Williams the noted Sartorial Specialist of Westfa House, St Mary street, after three weeks at Llanelly, decided to return to Newport and continue business as heretofore, Although trade at the tin-works town was in all respects good Mr. Williams for health reasons wisely prefers his native heath. Needless to state he received a cordial welcome on his return. The statement that he had removed his household was in- correct. Nautical.—Captain Havard of the Don Emelio" has left again on his ship. Mr. Johnny Hughes, chief-engineer, also left o* Tuesday for sea. Yet another sturdy veteran of the sea has joined the salts of siesta and sunshine, Captain Evans, Cambria Terrace, having retired after a long and successful career on the broad seas. The large number on the retired list and the larger majority still ploughing the main add glowing testimony to the integrity grit of North Pembroke seafar- ing men especially those of Newport, and Dinas the immediate sea-board. Year by year the "boys" add laurels to the maritime crown. They are known the world over as among the most reliable mercantile men in existence. This may seem, what travellers term a large order," but it is never-the-less correct and is substantiated as the years roll on. We wish Captain Evans with the rest of his intrepid brethren many years of joyous calm—the reward of well-doing The Regatta.—Extensive preparations are on foot for the popular annual aquatic event The able and earnest hon. secretary (Mr. T. B. Reynolds), and the euergetic committee are leaving nothing to except weather, to chance, and if Jupiter Pluviusbe anything like benign the regatta will top the record for success and abundance of animation. In the evening a capital concert will be held in the Council school-room organised by that able musician Mr. H. R. Felix and others. Un- fortunately the Goodwick Water Carnival and Sports happens on August 6th, an event which was arranged for in accord with the exigences of the GAV.R., works operations on which are suspended on that date. But the loss will be more likely Goodwick's and not Newport's. GENERAI. BOOTH. —Next Wednesday week General Booth will speak for fifteen minutes on the cross-roads on his tour through Pem- brokeshire. The hon secretary Mr T B Reynolds and committee have the matter in hand and they are to be congratulated on their success in gaining their objective. Th. veteran head of the Salvation Army lias favoured Newport in assenting to the request for an address, which will be worth listening to. The Mayor of Newport (Capt D Mathias) is to occupy the chair, and it is to be hoped that the weather will be propitious. THE REV J G MORRIS.—A letter from Mrs Mrs Morris, the worthy wife of the Rev J S Morris, the revered pastor of Ebenezer, from London sates that the surgical operation per- formed last week on her husband has proved successful and he is progressing as satisfactory as can be expected for his years—well over 70. Everyone is most pleased with the good news. The rumours afloat respecting the malady are quite groundless. Of course, medical etiquette does not permit the divulgence of such mat- ters, however anxious friendly sympathisers may be to know the truth. Human morbidity plays a part in all such cases, but truly, real sympathy is content to know that the sufferer is improving. A Big Sea Monster.—During the hot broiling days of last week a pretty huge denizen of the deep was observed by some of the inhabitants basking in the sunshine of the bay. Fortunate- ly for bathers these amphibious" beauties "—it was not a mermaid—are extremely shy in these parts of our silvery sea. yisitors.—It is said on good authority that visitors are very numerous at Newport and that apartments are either fully occupied or be- spoke. This points to a prosperous season. No doubt the lack of suitable accommodation at Fishguard and Goodwick will force holiday seekers to Dinas and Newport, two most salubrious health resorts. Therefore, make hay while the sun shines. Home-comers. Messrs David "and Arthur Havard, sons of Dr Havard, are at home for the vacation. Mr G J Bowen, West-street, another medical student, is also at home. I FUNERAL. The funeral of the late Miss Martha Ann Thomas took flace on Saturday, the 13th inst, the rector, Rev D. G. Phillips, officiat- ing very impressively. Beautiful wreaths were sent by the following—' With deepest sympathy,' from Mrs Olwen and family, Liverpool; In kind remembrance of dear Martha,' from Mauritius; kind sympathy,' from Mrs Bowen, Coth- am Lodge; With much sympathy,' from L. Brown and Mrs Evans; Mrs Leach and Miss Llllyd D. and M. T. Davies, Pembroke, T. H. Lindsay, Maggie Lewis, Hannah Miry and G. haM, Anuie Williams, M. A. Vaughan, Forest, Bessie and Olwe, M. A. and A. Varney, A. Morgan, A. Griffiths, Hannah Williams, L. Hariies and S. James, A. Giiiliths, Maesybont, Li Isaac, M. Thomas, L. T. NichJas, etc. A JOYOUS PEAL.—Lgst Saturday the bells in the old rugged tower of St Mary's Church gave out a joyous peal in honour of the arrival by motor how Carmarthen, of Sir Martcinc, LidyLhyd and family. Mingled with the merry music of the bells were hearty hurrahs I. the infectious ovation being vigorous and pro- bnged.
