Eisteddfod.The Eisteddfod to be held at Hermon Chapel on Monday afternoon next promises to be a capital success.

Passed Away.—On Sunday last early in the afternoon, Mr. Henry Haines, of Goodwtck Bridge, passed away to eternal rest after many months of poignant suffering from a malignant disease which affected the cavity of the mouth and throat. The veteran voyager has entered the haven ever open for the generous good. Deceased was of sterling character, full of sincerity, honest endeavour and cheerful help. He lived an upright, strenuous life for others, and he gained the un- dying esteem of everyone. The Vicar of Fishguard on Sunday evening last could not refrain from making reference to one of the most faithful christian men and adherents to the church that has ever passed from life to the realm of peace. All hearts were touched to sympathy for the gentle widow, Mrs. Haines, whose ministrations and devotion to her stricken husband day and night for months won the deepest respect of everyone acquainted with the family. While tears are shed for the loss of a noble, horney handed son of toil there is reason for gratification that he lived so long to do helpful service to those around him and the world, which is all the better for his example of integrity and true worth. In return for all he did, so happy and well, he has met his reward, a place with the revered dead whose souls have gained immortality. His name will live in blessed memory because ot the numberless loving acts of kindness that marked his sojourn here. After completing full term of years in His Majesty's Navy deceased was attached to the coast guards at Goodwick. In due course he was placed on the retired list and settled at Fishguard. Residents and visitors alike always found the deceased and his wife ever ready to perform acts of kindness. What so- ever their hands found to do was done with true conscientousness. The son Capt Haines, has followed with success a life on the sea and the deceased's only daughter is also married to a Fishguardian, who at present holds a high rank in the Navy. With his widow and children we extend heartful sympathy. The funeral took place yesterday (Wednesday) at Manorowen Parish Churchyard. The Rev W Evans, vicar of Fishguard, officiated at the house, and also at the service held at St Mary's Church, where deceased was a faithful member.-The bearers were a num- ber of Coastguards and naval men in uniforms, under the command of their chief, Mr Nicholas. The Vicar also officiated at the graveside. The hymns, Peace, perfect peace," and On the Resurrection morn," were sung at the Church. There were some beautiful floral tributes from relatives and friends of deceased. -Mr Gwynne James, High-street, carried out the funeral arrangements. G.F.S.—The members of the local Girls' Friendly Society enjoyed the annual tea treat on Friday last at the National Schoolroom. Presiding at the tables were Mrs Evans, Mrs Tavner, Mrs D. P. Lewis, Miss Harries, Miss Jenkins, Miss Phillips, Miss Bennett, Miss Braithwaite, and Miss Williams. The tables having been removed a most pleasant enter- tainment was held, those taking pad. being Miss Tavner, solo Miss M. Burnnard, recita- tion Miss Martha Rowlands, solo. Miss A. M. Tavner presided at the piano. Drunk and Disorderly.—At a special meet- ing of the Dewisland Session at the Police Station on Saturday morning last before Messrs. T. G. Bennett, (chairman), and J. R. Richards,—John Roberts, a travelling hawker, was brought up charged with being drunk and disorderly in Drim Road on the previous night. P.C. Rowlands detailed the particul- ars, and a fine of 2/6 and costs was imposde. HERMoN.- The ordinance of baptism was carried out at Glanainon on Sunday after- noon last in the presence of a numerous assembly of spectators, three young women being baptised by the earnest pastor, Rev Dan Danies.—On Sunday afternoon next the Rev Dan Davies, and the Rev Ifan Davies, Llangloffan, will preach at Scleddy Chapel onlthe occasion of the reopening of the sacred edifice after undergoing renovation. 1 he Rev Levi John, Goodwick, will be the preacher in the evening MR WYNFORD PHILLIPS, M.P., has paired for the rest of the session, and he and Mrs Phillips have gone abroad till the end of September. Letters requiring immediate attention should be addressed to Secretary, Lydstep Haven, Penally, R.S.O, Pem. POSTPONED.-We are asked to announce that the turn-out, proposed to be held on August Bank Holiday in connection with Court Glan Gwain, Ancient Order of Fores- ters, has been postponed indeffinitely. POLITICAL.—We are informed on reliable authorityl that Mr Austen Chamberlain has promised to address a series of public meetings in the County early next year, under the auspices of the Tariff Reform League Early Closing.—The secretaries of Good- wick Sports and Regatta request us to appeal through our columns to the tradesmen of Fishguard to close their respective business establishments on Tuesday afternoon next on the occasion of the regattta. They argue, and rightly so, that Goodwickians have al- ways closed for the Fishguard Regatta. Choral Society.—Mr H. B. George (chemist), the diligent hon. secretary to the Fishguard and Goodwick Choral Society, has handed us a balance sheet giving detailed particulars of the receipts and expenses in connection with the society's excellent performance at Hermon Chapel on the 15th of May last. The statement of account, which has been duly audited by Messrs G. L. Blackburne and Morgan H. Jones, shews the total receipts from all sources to have amounted to £ 63. 13s 3d.

Mr Rowlands holds an important position at the large establishment of Messrs Morgans, The Hays, Cardiff. Council Sciiool.—No clearer piool need bc given of the harmonious feeling existing be- tween the staff and scholars at the Council School than the unexpected presentation made on Wednesday of last week to the capable headmaster, Mr O. D. Jones, in view of his approaching marriage, which is to take place at Llangammarch during the school holidays. The teachers and scholars had been subscribing towards the cost of a wedd- ing gift,"which took the form of a massive cutlery case in polished walnut, full of cut- lery. Miss Owens, the headmistress, suitably introduced the proceedings, the gift being handed to Mr Jones by Miss Lizzie Thomas, Goodwick House, the senior scholar, who made a neat little speech and wished the recipient a long and happy married life.—Mr Jones, in thanking them for the gift, said they had taken him quite unawares and he was at a loss for words to show how grati- fied he was at this mark of respect and kind- ness towards him. Tower Hill C.M. Sunday School had its annual tea treat yesterday (Wednesday) in a field, kindly lent by Mr E D Jones, J.P., on Tower Hill. The treat proved a most enjoy- able one.

P. Lewis, Mrs J. R. Richards, Miss Harries (Castle Hill), Miss Jenkins, Mrs Swete, Miss James, Mrs Mason, Mrs W. J. Vaughan, Mrs Williams (Royal Stores) and Mrs Eynon. Motor-Lifeboat :—Mr. R. Thompson, of the firm, of Messrs. Thompson and Evans, the Motor Cycle Garage, West street, has been appointed motor-engineer of the new lifeboat to be placed at Fishguard in the Wigwen Lifeboat house. There is no doubt that the firm mentioned will fulfil the appoiniment with complete satisfacton. BAPTISTS.—In accordance with an old established custom, next Sunday, being the first Sunday in August, will be kept as a day y 11 of prayer by the various Baptist Churches in the County and elsewhere.—An interesting Welsh article, giving the origin of this custom will be found in another column of this issue. —The Pembrokeshire Baptist Associat on Letter" will reach the various churches bv Sunday next, and which contains the very able address delivered by the president, Mr W Geo James, J.P., LIysyronen, at the con- ference of the Association held at Betheda Chapel, Haverfordwest, in June last, the sub- ject being The Bible and Science." CATTLE SHOW CONCERT.—A glance at the advertisement in another column will be sufficient to satisfy all lovers of high-cla1 music that this year's Cattle Show Concert will be a musical treat of the best kind, two of the artistes engaged—Miss Evans and Mr Davies—being recognised among the best vocalists of the day. Miss Evans has only recently returned from Italy, where she has been studying for the past three years, and has already won distinction as the coming Madam Patti of Wales." Mr Anthony, who has the concert annangements in hand, has been most fortunate in his choice of singers, and it is hoped that the public generally will show their appreciation of his efforts by a crowded attendance.
