WA Death of mlI W. S. Jenkins, J.P., Feshguartl. After a somewhat brief illness, at the a; of 55, Mr W S Jenkins, J.P., Main-stre passed away on Sunday evening last in d presence of his grief-stricken widow children all of whom feel his demise acutely. Deceased was the son of th'? Rev Jenkins, one of the most jru, Welsh Congregational preachers of in South Wales. Born at Br;maw,1' Breconshire, deceased attended >ornLa^' Swansea, and New College, Lon^' °r three vears he was valn#v1 mnn~r 9* the Swansea School Board, and wasiea^a.ster of the Pentre Preparatory Scl^- Subse- quently he with his family c]c to iem' brokesliire, residing at Scledd' ^rom there they occupied Bonavi?> ffrfTh-stieet, I4 ishguard. For a numbed ytors before ¡- 1: the Collty School became into existence, the deceased gentleman kept the Fishguard Grammar School, from which some very bright pupils emerged and now occupy prominent public positions. The Rev Edward Jones, M.A., B.D., pastor of Gwernllwyn \Jiapelj Dowlais, and that minister's brother now principal of the Pontvprydd Higher Grade School are among those who received their grounding at the hands of the deceased. Locally, he was one of the foremost and in 1896 was placed on the Commission of (the Peace for Pembrokeshire, but had declined the hon- our some years previously. He was the first representative on the Pembrokeshire County --Council for Fishguard, was chairman of the Parish Council and always prominent at public gatherings—cymanfa, social and political and educational. An ardent Liberal aud a very fluent speaker, his services were ever sought by the leading politicians, including the present county and borough M.P.s. The latter, on hearing of his demise, at once wired sympathetic messages to the family. He was of the most kindly, gener- ous disposition, broad-minded, a ripe scholar, and was never heard to speak an unkind word of anyone, his kindness, indeed, border- ed the abnormal, but the ties of home were ever sacred to him through sunshine or cloud, for he was the tenderest of parents. The community has lost a most useful member in the widest sense, he won confidence and esteem by his sterling qualities no less than bv his readiness to assist any good cause. He leaves a widow and ten children, several of the older ones occupying positions of con- fidence. The second daughter, Miss Gwennie Jenkins, resolutely adopted the nursing pro- fession, and is now at the Devon and Exeter Hospital fulfilling the duties in an exemplary manner. The eldest son is a mechanical engineer, while others of the family are per- sueing honourable callings. It might be said with truth of the deceased- That best portion of a good man's life, His little, nameless, unremembered acts Of kindness and of love." With the'rest of the community, we join in sincere sympathy with the bereaved, who did all in their power for a loving and fond par- ent. THE FUNERAL. Amid signs of mourning, the funeral took place on Wednesday at Tufton in the family burial ground, the mortal remains being con- veyed by hearse from Fishguard, followed by a number of closed and other carriages, and a numerous gathering of the general public join- ed the mournful procession on foot for some dis- tance out of the town, The Rev Morlais Davies Tabernacle, of which church the deceased gen- tleman had been a faithful member and deacon, conducted a most impressive service at the house.—The whole of the funeral arrangements were carried out by Mr Gwynne James, under- taker, High-street, I I .I!:ØWJ
- Welsh National Show.—
Welsh National Show.— The fourth Annual exhibition of the Welsh National Agricultural Society was opened at the Vicarage Field, Aberystwyth, on Tuesday. The outlook at the time of opening was very gloomy, as an overcast sky gave forebodings of heavy rain. The weather, however, held up, and after lunch brilliant summer weather was experienced. That the show is in the vanguard of progress is shown by the fact that entries this vear were far in excess of any previous year, while an all-round improvement was noticed in the exhibits, which was generally commented upon by both exhibitors and stock farmers.—The entries this year included 235 horses, 190 cattle, 203 sheep, and 47 pigs, to- gether with a large collection of dairy produce, making a total entry of 676, as compared with 556 last year. A notable exhibitor on this occasion was his Majesty the King, who extend- ed his patronage to the show by sending three Hereford animals for competition, and as evid- ence of the high quality of the exhibits it may be stated that the Royal animals had to take second and third positions in their classes.
Interment Alive. To the Editor of the County Echo." 0 Sir,-The recent narrow escape at Hapton, near Acerington, Hinckley, and Rochdale demonstrate in a startling manner the perils of premature burial under cur lax and un- scientific laws and customs. If it is possible for the living to be medically certified as dead why should it be impossible for them to be coffined and buried alive ? All these cases for- tunately exhibited signs of life which was detected before interment, but in many in- stances consciousness may not return until after burial, and then no one would, or could know anything about them. Since exhumation occurs so rarely as once in 50,000 interments, S chance is there in this couatry of a case of burial alive being discovered ? A Bill has been drafted by the Association for the pre- vention of premature burial, whose recent meeting was reported in your valuable paper of July 4th, which obliges a medical practitioner to personally verify the f-lct of death, by means of a scientific test, before signing the death certificate. Another provision is the establishment -of waiting mortuaries by local authorities, where the supposed dead may be under medical supervision until resuscitation takes place, or the fact of death is unequivo- cally established. The authors of the valu- able treatise on Premature Burial and How it may be Prevented," (second edition by Walter R Hadwen, M.D., &c.J estimates that the cost of these mortuaries conld be met by a rate of from one farthing to a penny in the pound. They also recommend that systematic medical instruction should be given in all schools of medicine in the phenomena of trance, catalepsy, syncope, and count?r- fects, and that students, should, before receiv- ing medical deplomas and degrees, entitling them to practice their profession, satisfy the examiners of their knowledge of the tests necessary to distinguish apparent from real death, in order to prevent premature burial with its accompanying horrors. If any of your readers are willing to help the philanthropic movement for the prevention of interment alive the writer would be pleased to send them literature on the sucject on receiving a stamped addressed envelope.—Thanking you for your kindly help in this matter in the cause of humanity, Yours &c., JAS. R. WILLIAMSON. 100 Chedington Road, Upper Edmonton, London, N., 23rd July, 1907.
Sir Alfred Thomas, the chairman of the Welsh Parliamentary paity,^ has eallei a metting of his colleagues to day (I hursday) in order to resume the comiJeration of Mr Ellis Griffith's propos-d that another interview be sought with the Piime Minister in order to ask for a definite pledge that a W dsh Disestablishment Bill will be introduced in the fourth session.

I" I GOOD WICK.
I" I GOOD WICK. ¡ from the Jettv.We understand t objections have been lodged with the W.R. Company to bathing from the boat ."ttv at Goodwick. Since the warm weather set in the number of bathers have grown to "enormous proportions. Most, if not all, are of the sterner sex and who naturally take advantage of the splendid convenience the concrete steps and parapet afford for enjoy- ing full benefits of open bathing. But to the objection raised. A year ago the popu- lation was less than half its present number, bathers of the regular daily kind totalled per- haps a baker's dozen. No one ever heard of anyone taking a header from the concrete steps unless suitably attired. Things have changed somewhat since then. The only house then commanding a close and clear view of the jetty was the Penrhyn, which was for some months vacant. This year it is fully occupied by Air W L Gray (station and quay superintendant) and Mrs Gray and family. Higher up, almost in a line with Penrhyn, is a spacious semi-detached villa, whose upper rooms are in the possession of the manageress (Miss Morgan) and staff of assistants at the Harbour Refreshment Rooms. In addition hotel guests are to find accom- modation at the fine villa should the Bay Hotel become over-crowded. Possibly not one of those referred to would raise any I serious objection to bathers making use of I the jetty at proper times only that many of them actually undress and dive into the water with absolutely nodingson." Having heard that complaints have reached the head office of the G.W.R. Company regular I habitues, who always don full length bath- ing suits, are anxious that, rather than risk the prohibition of bathing from the jetty urge that bathers shall wear proper costume and disrobe close to the wall of the slip-wav. Some may argue that the public have a right of way to the jetty. True, but that very fact in itself involves the stricture that users shall not do anything which may become a nuisance in the eyes of the public. The latter includes persons of both sexes and bathers, in the nude, necessarily exclude the gentler half making use of the jetty as a promenade whenever bathing is going on. Of course, no one would object to bathing, decently indulged in, during early morning when few of the fairer half are about. It is, therefore, to be hoped that bathers will do nothing likely to cause the authorities to deprive those making legitimate, that is, decent, use of the jetty for the healthful dip in the briny.—Everyone will admit that for youths in their teens proper bathing apparel is indispensable under present conditions. A few years' ago scarcely a building overlooked the jetty. Now, however, houses are inhabit- ed that command a clear and uninterrupted view. Last year, it is true, a mixed company of coal diggers, their wives and sweathearts, were observed gamboling —bobbing up and down—in rather i £ scanty rig in the rippling waves on the beach, but they were visitors for the day. Yet, that could not be tolerated to any extent at the present time, and proper regulations would have to be enforced were the practice to become more frequent. Some Fair Opinions.—One who guards somewhat zealously the boon of bathing from the jetty took the trouble to ascertain the opinions of several fair" whose boudoir windows gaze directly on the animated scene referred to above. One said, smiling, I should not dream of inviting any but my closest lady friends to my sitting-room whilst bathing as carried on now is indulged in from the jetty.—"No, we don't make use of binoculars. t Far from being entertaining it is most objectionable." Yes, there are al- ways some of the assistants in the rooms." Another said, We would not object to them bathing if all wore bathing costumes."— Another gave the reason for protesting, Be- cause I cannot admire the view on the Fish- guard side. The lovely scenery, of course." I'm not offended in the least" remarked another, but they ought to wear proper costumes and not dance about the parapet in the way they do now."—Generally, it will be noted, that the objections are in no sense captious or unreasonable. There is not the least intention to deprive bathers of their health-giving recreation, and everyone with the slightest pretention to modesty will readily acquiese and see to it that they are in future clothed, in a becoming garment during the time they are indulging in one of the most invigorating exercises the summer season and the sea afford.—It might be here suggested that if an awning were fixed by the wall near the railway embankment, a capital dessing-room" would then be im- provised at small cost.—Anything rather than total prohibtion. Killaloe Trips.—Advantage is being taken of the excellent and cheap Killaloe trips arranged by the G.W.R. Company. Any person desirious of enjoying seven days tour- ing in Ireland may do so at the modest sum of This includes lailway, steamboat and coach fares, hotel expenses and guide. There were numerous bookings last week by this inexpensive route. The much advertised tours on the Continent are. not more economi- cal whilst the scenery by the route is un- equalled anywhere. Dog and Troosair."—Last week a cyclist had a rather alarming experience. Seeing a fellow cyclist a head going in the same di- rection he hailed him to stop. The first cyclist accordingly slackened space, but un- fortunately the second misjudged the pace and the distance and cannon'd into the other. Result, among other minor details, a badly ripped troosair belonging to the second cyclist, a Fishguardian, by the way. So out- rageously torn was the troosair that the first wheelman had to return home and search his wardrobe for a pair to lend his companion. The garment was donned and the damaged pantaloons discarded. But the first cyclist had a dog and, as might natur- ally have been expected, the faithful tyke, after sniffing at the troosair, declined to follow his owner, but accompanied the cycl- ist with the borrowed bags all the way to Fishguard. Nor would the dog leave the wearer of its master's tweed under any condi- tions. Finding sauce and suasion alike use- less lie allowed the animal to accompany him home. An hour later the dog might have been seen trotting down Windy Hall hill with the "bags" his master lent the hap- less cyclist.—Fact Harbour Pars.—Several notabilities crossed and re-crossed the Channel last week by the turbines. The largest passenger list at a single ordinary crossing was close upon 200. Early in the Spring the turbine, St Andrew,' will join the fleet of luxurious steamers.— From the 1,100 feet mark shore wards, a con- crete wall of some 14 feet in thickness is be- ing constructed on the weather side of the breakwater to neutralise the effects of possible bad weather during the winter. On every hand, it is admitted, that last winter's storms were the most severe of any experienced for many years past.—On Friday afternoon last the chief chef on the Fishguard express ven- tured to bathe in the sea opposite the quay. Whilst enjoying the luxury his costume slipped down to his feet which were entang- led in such a manner that he was unable to extricate them. Realising the danger he hailed a boat occupied by one of ( Morgan Owen's sons and the timely arrival of the craft averted what seemed likely to become a tragedy. The chef is an apt swimmer, but the awkward predicament caused him to get excited and well-nigh lose his presence of mind. However, when the help arrived he managed to free himself and get into the boat. Young master Owen deserves com- mendation for his timely act. OPENING NEW CHAPEL. — Inauguration services in connection with the new English Congregational Chapel were held on Sunday last, attended by numerous congregations. The new building marks, to a certain extent, not only the growth of the place, but also the progress of the cause of Congiegationalism. The demand for English services has, through the faithful devotional energy of several of the leading spirits, been met most amply. It is just on four years ago that a meeting was called at Goodwick to consider ways and means of establishing a local church. Those attending were Revs Lewis James, Bryn-y- bank, Cardigan, Gwylim Jones, Penarth, J G James, Rhosycaerau, and W Morlars Davies, Tabernacle, Fishguard. Also Messrs WG James, J.P., Pantyphilip, W S Jenkins, J.P., Francis Davies, Paris House Gazmne James, Fishguard; T Perkins, Ilendrewcn, and Daniel Bevan, Goodwick. After due delibera- tion a committee was appointed to secure a site. Negotiations were, however, suspended until June, 1905, when, at the request of the South Wales Congregational Union the Rev Llovd Williams, of Tenby, visited Goodwick, and the result was that the Reading Room, belonging to the G.W.R. Co. was secured at an annual rental of £20. On July iotli of that year the initial services were conducted by the Revs Lewis James, and the Rev Griffiths, missioner to the S. W. C. U. The last named minister remained in charge of the cause for six months, his devotion and able preaching attracting large congregations. So Z, 17) quickly have the members increased that the accommodation became inadequate at the Reading Room. The Church was officially constituted in December, 1905, and on its behalf Mr W G James, J.P., Pantyphillip, attended the Annual Meeting of the Congre- 17 gational Union at Bridgend. The question of securing a site and erecting a chapel at Goodwick was further discussed. Mr James was requested by the Union to negotiate for a site and proceed with the building. A site was eventually decided upon on the side of the hill, and considerable difficulties had to be overcome in removing the rock. The Chapel, which is now completed, is a hand- some and commodious corrugated iron structure, and was erected by Messrs Harlow, of London. Throughout the negotiations and the erection of the chapel Mr W G James \vas given a free hand by the Congregational Union and the Goodwick Church, and the present structure reflects great credit upon his management.—On Sunday, at 10.30 the place was well filled and in the evening there was quite a full church. Pointed sermons and excellent singing characterised the meetings. Miss Ruby Davies presided at the organ with her usual skill and taste, and altogether the day was most inspiring. Officiating were the Revs J Williams, Saundersfoot, and the Rev Lloyd Williams, of Tenby. On Sunday next, when the opening services will be again continued, the Rev James Lewis, Brynbank, will officiate. Carnival Public Meeting.—In response to the notice in the Echo convening a public meeting, at the Reading-room, to consider the advisability of holding a water carnival and longshore sports on August 6th next, there was a numerous attendance respresent- ing the trading community and general public. Again there was a thoroughly un- animous and business-like air about the whole of the proceedings. At once Mr A Williams (chief clerk of Marine department) was elected chairman on the proposition of Mr W J Canning, seconded by Mr Bewett.— Prefacing his opening remarks by thanking them for the honour Mr Williams proceeded to explain that in accord with the announce- ment, in the popular local newspaper the County Echo," they had called a public meeting to determine whether or not an institution, which marked the history of most progressive seaside places, should be estab- lished at Goodwick. They would observe that a committee had framed suggestions for the programme of a water carnival and it was for that meeting to decide. If it were in ) the affirmative then they would select a working committee and push the matter for- ward with all speed. There was no intention* to clash with the regatta on the Fishguard side, but he might venture to state that Fishguard would receive the support of Goodwick as hitherto. The date was decided upon subject to Mr G Lmbert Gibson's approval and he was happy to announce that Mr A H Clarke had received a telegram from that gentleman and which he would read. "To Clarke, Engineer's Office, Goodwick. Will close Works on Tuesday following Bank Holiday.—Gibson. (Applause).—So far as the employees on the Harbour were concern- ed the date was, as they would see, settled. The first question for the meeting to decide was, should the aquatic sports and carnival be held ? He would remind them that at Goodwick, just as they had at Neyland, they would have to do everything themselves. It was their aim to make the event enjoyable to all at the very least possible expense. They would have to bear in mind also that they were prepared to support Fishguard.— Mr D J Evans, The Stores, proposed that the aquatic sports and carnival be held.—Mr J R Davies, in seconding, said he looked forward to future developments at Goodwick through the G.W.R. Company and it was their duty to assist the Company in popularising the place which was so much advertised all over t the world. (Applause).On being put to the meeting the motion was carried unanim- ously, not one refraining from voting.—Mr D J Evans asked if it were proposed to have the half-day for the sports and the Chairman replied that it was intended to start about I p.m.—Mr J Howard Davies, solicitor, thought the day and tide most suitable for event.— At this point the Chairman aroused the risi- ble by an apt humorous quotation in Welsh. —Mr Moses agreed that the day was most appropriate.—Inspector Thomas suggested that the tradespeople should be consulted.— Mr D J Evans responded thai the day would suit the majority, himself included,admirably The Chairman suggested that a water event could scarcely be more suitable for the day after Bank Holiday (laughter).—Mr A W Stevens proposed the 6th of August be the appointed date.—Mr John Miles seconded.— This was put to the meeting and carried nem con.—The Chairman intimated that in regard to the secretary he regretted that Mr \V J Canning was una Ie to assume that position owing to holiday leave which ex- tended over the event. Mr Canning was popular with everybody and that was a very essential qualification in a secretary. He would again ask Mr Canning if he could undertake the duties. Mr Canning thanked them for the honour. It would have given him unfeigned pleasure to undertake the office had it not been that he was obliged to take his annual holiday at that period. He would, however, be pleased to do all he possibly could to assist any other secretary they might appoint (hear hear).—The Chair- man then said he never liked to make a diffi- culty without trying to tide over it. He had a nominee to put forward but he should like to have a local man proposed first.—-Mr J R Davies agreeing with the Chairman proposed that Mr Arthur Rowlands, who had shewn, by his connection with the recent eisteddfod, sound business tact, be the joint secretary. This was at once seconded and carried with- out a desentient.—The Chairman then pro- posed Mr Netherfiekl as the other joint secret- ary.—Mr J Howard Davies seconded and this was also carried unanimously.—Mr Nether- field, who is in the Marine Department and in every respect a very suitable official, returned thanks for the honour in selecting him and he would db his very best for tic success of the carnival. (Applause). Mr Rowlands was not present but it was given out that he would accept the position.—The Chairman said they wanted a comprehensive committee. They were prepared to accept the richman's £50 note as well as the widow's mite.—It was then decided that the committee I be selected and the following were unanim- ously chosen in the usual form by those pre- sent :—Messrs A H Clarke, Dunston (Neath) A .Williams (chairman) D J Evans, D James, W Davies, J R Davies, Ed Morgan, Stewart, L Nichols, Raymond Carpmael, J Miles (Booking Officer, Harbour Station), H Dellar, Moses, J Thomas (coxwain) J H Davies, Capt W Lewis, W Thomas, A W Stevens, D Williams, Blewett, J C Bowen, J Llewellyn (chemist) E Anthony (Henner) and Thomas (Traffic Department). Finally it was decid- ed that twenty-five should constitute the I executive committee.—On the proposition of Mr J R Davies, seconded by Mr H Dellar, Mr A B Edwards, (Engineer's Office) was unanimously elected treasurer. A proposi- tion to impose a qualifying fee of 2S 6d upon members of the committee was negatived al- most unanimously. It was pointed out by several that such a stipulation was opposed to progress especially in the case of a com- mitteee as that selected, all of whom were active workers.—The Chairman said they had reason to feel congratulated upon the large and representative gathering that evening (Applause). He thanked them and gave assurance of his hearty support to bring about the desired end. (Applause).—Mr Miles (Har- bour) proposed a vote of thanks which was seconded by Mr Dellar, and carried with acclamation.—The Chairman said if they were satisfied he was gratified.— I he work of electing president and vice-presidents was proceeded with in committee the delibera- tion lasting till 11 p.m. Mr G Lambert Gibson was elected president for the ensuing year. DROWNED. — On Saturday afternoon the body of Arthur GouifJ, aged 16, son of Mr Gould, of the Great Western Railway depot at Pershore, was recovered from the River Avon. The lad went to bathe, and it is supposed he was seized with a fit, to which he was subject. CRICKET-Goodwick v Wiltshire Regi- ment.—This match was played at Goodwick on Wednesday, the lyth inst, and resulted in a draw in favour of the regiment who made 2S7 for seven wickets.—Goodwick lost six wickets for 56 runs, when at 5 o'clock, by previous arrangements stumps had to be drawn. The Wiltshire regiment, who were represented by eleven of their officers, were very lucky in winning the toss, and gave a very line display of batting which was much appreciated.—The Goodwick Club certainly now' have the material of a very strong team, and should give a good account of itself. t It is hoped that a return match may be arran- ged with the Wiltshire Regiment so deservedly popu.ar at Goodwick. BUILDING SOCIETY.-A meeting of those interested in the formation of a Building Society at Goodwick was held at the Glen- dower Hotel on Saturday last. Those present were Messrs V J G Johns, J C Bowen, Isaiah Reynolds, Levi Rees, Daniel Francis, Evan Davies, \V L Williams, E T John, J F Remnant, M.P., W Goulding, H J P Thomas, Capt W Lewis and others.—Mr J C Bowen presided.—Mr Hugh J P Thomas explained the objects of the meeting, and Mr E T John proposed that a Club be formed, and this was seconded by Mr Levi Rees and carried. Mr V J G Johns moved that Mr Jas Evans be appointed secretary, this being seconded by ¡ Mr E T John. On the proposition of Mr Remnant, seconded by Mr Hugh Thomas, Mr J C Bowen was appointed chairman.—It was agreed that A Bank be treasurer of the Club and that a building committee be entrusted to make a selection.—Mr Levi Rees proposed that Mr Vincent Johns be appointed solicitor and Mr E T John seconded.—Mr Remnant proposed that Mr Hugh Thomas be appointed architect, and Mr Levi Rees seconded.—Messrs L Rees, Thos Lewis (chemist), Fishguard, Isaiah Reynolds (Haverfordwest) I) J Evans and Capt. W Lewis were appointed a building committee. On the proposition of Mr Phillips seconded by Mr Remnant it was decided that the Building Committee be left to draft rules for approval and be submitted at the next general meeting.—It was agreed that the Building Committee should meet next Thurs- day evening, at the Glendower Hall at 6 p.m. G.W.R. Contract.— Mr D J Evans, propiietor of The Stores, Ooodwick, his secured the contract for supplying the (T. W.R. Company's hotels and steamers with grocery, provisions, and vegetables. Upwards of forty responded to the Company's advert for lenders and the successful one is fully equal to meet all demands however great, with complete satisfaction. It could not have been better placed.
DINAS CROSS. THE BUNGALOW.—At the last meeting of the St Dogmael's District Council the Sanitary Inspector reported that at the request of Mr Thomas, the owner of the Bungalow at Cwmyreglwys, he had again visited that place during the month to see that everything had been done as required by the bye-laws. The cesspool which had been built was not satisfactory, and it would be necessary to cement it on the inside to make it watertight. The house itself was all that could be desired, and was quite as represented all the approved plan. BANKRUPTCY.—At a meeting of the Car- marthenshire Bankruptcy Court, held at Carmarthen, amongst the cases was that of Stephen Davies. This debtor, is a black- smith at Dinas Cross. His gross liabilities came to £83 19S id, and his deficiency was £65 8s 2d. His failure was said to be due to ill health of himself and family, and to losses in carrying on the Freemason's Arms, a public house which he took over about eight years ago, but which, finding it did not pay, he discontinued after five years' trading. His present liabilities, with one or two excep- tions, were for goods supplied to the inn, about 22 vears ago. Mr W Evans, solicitor, Fishguard, appeared for the debtor, whose examination was provisionally closed. DEMISE.—There pased away on Thursday evening last at Spring Gardens, the devoted wife of "Mr John Price Gronow, at the early age of 48, after a most trying illness of over twelve month's duration. Decease 1, who was greatly esteemed, bore her sufferings with much christian fortitude. Several young children are left alone, their father being at sea. Needless to state there is universal sympathy extended towards the bereaved. The funeral on Monday last at Macpela was numerously attended. The Rev S Thomas read and prayed in the house, and the Rev J W Maurice, pastor of Tabor, of which deceas- ed was a faithful member, delivered an ap- preciative and touching oration. The rev Pastor also spoke at the graveside and offered fervent prayer. Among those present were the four daughters of the deceased, Capt and Mrs Williams, Brynymor; Mrs George, Gar- den Terrace Mrs Evaus, Cardiff (sister); Mrs Gronow, Brynhenllan (sister-in-law) M rs Stevens, Jericho, and Mr Geo Liughrne, Maes-y-garn. The arrangements were ably carried out, and the handsome hearse was brought into use. We join in sympathy with the bereaved. ^Nautical.—Capt Edwards has gone to Glas- gow to juin his ship.—Capt Howells, Rose- neath, is enjoying a holiday spell at home. Home Comers.—Miss Mendus, daughter ot Capt Mendus, the marine overlooker at Messrs Campbells, Glasgow, is spending holidays at Orielton.— Mr 11 ughie Reynolds, of the Lon- don and Provincial Benk, Rhymney, is on a visit to his parents.—At Cilwenen, is Mr Jas Rees, chemist, London.—Staying with Ai rlt Clay, Brynbellan, are Mrs Prince and family and Miss Ward. Wedding.—Spending the honeymoon at the Bungalow, are Mr and Mes Camp, the latter is the daughter of Mr D Thomas, F.T.S.C., Pontyprydd. Mr Camp is a he admastor of a school near Dublin and the young emplo met at the Tonic Solfa College, London, both having scholarships there and it is siid they are both talented instrumentalists of a high order. We join in wishing them long ycas of nuptial bliss. Baptist Union, &c.—Delegates appointed at Tabor to attend the Baptist Union meetings are Messrs Phillip Rees, Bryn Cottage, and Jas Reynolds, Cilwenen. The preaidenr, the Rev J W Maurice, will deliver the president- ial address at the gathering which is to be held on the first Wednesday in September at Llanelly.—Bi-monthly meetings are to be held in conection with North Pembrokeshire Baptists :at Tabor on the 6th and 7th of August.

As the recipient is only 21 years of age he is deserving of hearty congratulation on his early distinction. Moreso as the examination embodies four new subjects added lecentiy. He was for Jseme time at the Post Ofli:e with Mr. W. E. Bennett, J. P., and, similar to a predecessor at the post otiice, his success is due in a great measure to the splendid traiuiug the office assistants obtain there.

Suddenly a dark cloud overhung the scene of operations, and i-oon afterwards a heavy shower of rain compelled those employed in one of the fields to give up work while those in the adjoining Held kept at work, and were able to c-nt the whole the hay into the hayguaid without the slightest interrupt ion from the bhower wi.ich compiled the others to abandon work. Very strange, indeed.

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.

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. It testified to the loyal affection of the people fpr the honoured and generous ftronvrydd family.

Did You Hear!
Did You Hear! That tipping at Tower Hill should be stopped by the Urban Council. That the Council should insist upon all rubbish being tipped into Penslade quarry alone. That the tips at Penrallt and Tower Hill j spoil the footpaths and disfigure the otner- wise pretty hillside. That a resident in the Slade was busily engaged on a recent Sunday morning in lime-washing the front of Ins dwelling. That Sabbath desecration is becoming rampant in the town. That General Booth's visit is opporLunc since it might help to stem the ti^eof religious indifference which is rapidly carrying the young people away. That a great deal depends upon the home training and its inlluence. That quite a large crowd travelled to Rosebush on Sunday last to see the soldiers in camp. That canvas and smoke were all they saw PIZO BONO PUBLIC.
