GOODWICK. Visitors.—Of the four seaside places in close proximity to each other Goodwick would seem the most fortunate in respect to visitors theae being mure numerous in the new har- bour town than at any of the other resorts along the North Pembrokeshire coast. A cousin of Mr S II Hughes, Glanymor, a Mr Hills, is visiting these shores for the first time from the land where they lick creation' —Brother Jim*, then'* continent Mr Hills is favourably impresse i with Britain's verdaut landscape and the beautiful rocky coast that girts our Island Home. Other visitors are Mr and Mrs Moore from Coventry, Mr Moore is a firmer resident of Goodwick. A party of cyclists came in on Monday evening last Most of the houses have holiday-makers. The O'Connell cash stores will be opened in spacious new premises on Saturday next and will be found stocked with fresh sound goods at moderate prices. Gradually, the southern end of Goodwick is being improved and these new stores reflect the greatest credit on Mr Daniel Thomas, builder, Letterston. Fishermen. — Goodwick is fortunate in its fishermen visitors belonging to the Brixbam trawlers. The men are a good, steady lot, their behaviour generally being quite exem- plary. 00 Sunday evening they spent some- time at Duffiyn where they rendered hyms in the open effectively before a large gathering. A Curio.—Sergt Robert Clapham, of the Royal Engineers, and who lodges at Mrs Wtbb's, Drim Terrace, Duffryn, brought home t om abroad a useful curio in the shape of a dog whip made from a tree. "Tit-Bits" gave a description of the whip as follows :—In the Island of Jamaica there grows a tree with the botanical name of Daphne Lagetto, from the branches ot which the natives make strong and excellent whips which have the handle and lash all in one piece. For the lash the stem is deprived ot its bark, and then split into strips which are woven together in a flexible cord six or seven feet long. A Successful Essayist.—At the Croes^och Eisteddfod held a few weeks ago Agricolo," who did not respoud to his name, won the prize for the essay corn and root crops their cultivation and treatment-" The winner proves to be Mr D Morris, Tre- vasser, of whom the adjudicator, Mr D D Williams, lecturer at University College, Aberystwyth, wrote Agricola writes in filie style. He is a keen observer and possesses a very good knowledge of agricul- tural science. He evidently does not belong to the rising generation and humourously remarks that some of the dashing young oloods in his County take no time to attend to details and are too changeable in their methods. His essay is an excellent one in every respect, full of information, and he fully deserves the prize -Verily, Pencaer farmers comprise not only learned agricul- tuiists, but essayists, lecturers, politicians, educationists, and county magnates,in spite of a complete equipment of cardinal sins. The Sanitary Area. There was a warm word tussle on the question of sanitary area at the last District Council meeting. Those inter- ested in the area may follow the line of route here indicated Starting at Careoed old coast- guard's station, down the lane to Cilau (not including Cilau House), follow highway to Cilau cross-roads from there to Garnwnda to the road by Henner School (school not included) down to Henner Cross. From here .long the highway to the boundary of the parish at Carne, including the whole of Carne farm and land. Thence along the boundary line of the parish down to Goodwick Bridge. Of course, Tresissillt Fach is included en bloc.' The committee decided to submit the area back again to the Parish Council with the recommendation to include a portion of land owned by the Squire of Manorowen in the latter parish near the Mill. The Rev T Johns has kindly assented to the proposal.— Well, as there seems a set determination to form a sanitary area for Good wick the one suggested is in every respect favourable, and should have no difficulty in meeting with the Local Goveroment Board's approval. If the rateable \alue be not yet up to the required mark in order to raise sufficient loan for drainage purposes there are certainly very rosy prospects of a big increase at no distant date, which will, of course, be taken into consideration. Valuation Bill.-According to the latest Parliamentary news the Valuation Bill is not likely to get through this Session. Llanwnda parish may, therefore, leel no alarm for the next six months. Agency.-Tlie directors of the Norwich Union Fire Insurance Society, at their last Board Meeting, held on the 13t,h inst, passed a resolution appointing Mr J. W. O'Connell (Cash Stores, Goodwick). as their agent, and have caused a notification of his appointment to be sent that gentleman. The amount of claims paid by this society since formation in 1797 is no less than 917,270,000, which proves upright dealing with clients, as well as its finaucirl stability. Letter Box.—Lord Stanley, the Postmaster General, has at last carried out his promise to Mr O'Connell and has caused a letter box to be erected at the Duffryn Bridge. This C, boon is much appreciated by the residents of southern Goodwick who will have no longer to go to the post office to post their letters. New Cause.—A meeting of the delegates appointed by the South Pembrokeshire Con- gregational Onion to consider the question of a new Congregational cause at Goodwick met on Monday last at Goodwick. We are informed that the matter was adjourned, no defioite resolution being adopted. Houses furnished throughout. Estimates free.—Supply Stores, Fishguard.
Widow and Widower. DINAS DOVES. Some startling were made on Tuesday last in the case of assault from Dinas. heard at Eglwyswrw petty sessions. Complainant, Elizabeth James, Tycol, is a widow with several children, and was woo'd by Wm Williams, widower, and carpenter, of Fron. But, as usual, the ail-too-true love did'nt run smooth with the Dinas turtle doves for on Wednesday of last week, the 14th inst., Wiliiam cime on his visitation in quarrelsome mood which resulted in his re- ceiving a triplet of summonses on charges of beating and threatening his sweetheart, and damaging her dwelling house. Complainant, a fine specimen of the Welsh agricultural dame, tol l her story in Welsh. On the night of the 14tb, between 9.30 and 10 o'clock, defendant came back late from Fishguard, though he had promised to be back early. He knocked at the door and she came down stairs and let him in. Tileu he commenced cursing and swearing because she had gone to bed and there was no supper ready for him. She told him there was some meat in the pantry and a bottle of beer, but advised him to take milk instead. He took supper; she went back to bed with the two little girls and he came and sat on the end of the b"d. At between three and four o'clock in the moirnug he left the house, returning agaiu at o a.m. and commenced making a I I row about a sovereign which he alle^id was in his pocket and had been missed. ° He hit her under the chin with his fist, kicked her, and threatened to kill her with the handle of a maddock and a bottle. Asked about the sleeping apartment, complainant said that she slept in bed with the children and defend- ant at the foot of the bed. Continuing she said there were no marks to show where she had been hit. After the row be left the place, but returned again hter and because she refused to open the door he smashed it in with the mattock's haudle, damaged the passage, and a pail. V\ hile the scuflli was on she sent her daughter for assistance as he threatened to smash her brains. William Beyuon of VVaenorfa, the next farm, came iu reply to the gill's statement that her mother was ill. She also sent for P.C. Morgan, Newport. Replying to a question, complain- r, ant said she wis not afraid of defendant thtt day, but she was when at the house. P.C. Morgau deposed being called at 9 0 el a.m. on the 15h inst by complainant to go to Tycol. He went and found Mrs James and her children at VVaenorfa. After hearing the complainants story he accompanied her home. The entrance gate of the farm was partly smashed, and near the-door of th3 house be saw a mattock, a damaged pail and portions ol a j tr. The door of the house was damaged the bolt and lock of same being broken off. Inside the house a wooden partition had been broken. lie saw nothing of the defendant at the time. Mr VV Beynon, of Waenorfa, said that when he wenc up to Tycol he met defendant in the fold of the farm. Defendant commen- ced to explaiu to him something, and he seemed in bi^h temper and excited. Asked how defendant looked, witness replied, about half seas over (Lughter). Several times defendant tried to explain but he replied that he did not want to put his head in be- tween them. In the barn he saw defendant packing up some clothes. Questioned by the Magistrates, witness siid he did not re- member at all, as he had promised the pair he would say nothing between them. Defea- dant had his coat off at the time. Defendant was then sworn and said he arrived at L'ycol at about 9 30 on the evening in question. The door was open as usual (not bolted), complainant was in bed with the children, and he expressed regret he was not earlier in but that the rain had prevented him. After saying that, he had s )nH supper which was ready Oil the table; there was also a glass of milk. Compliiuant did not get out of bed at all.-Asked where he slept, he replied, not far from her." Continuing he said he did not go out of the house before half-past seven or eight in the morning. Pievious to this he found he had missed a sovereign and that started the row. Complainant told him to clear out as he could not be master there. He then began to clear out his things when she interfered by locking the dooi whilst he was carrying out some clothes. It was then he pushed the door open. He denied having his co it off or that he struck complainant. K.plyin°- to tha Clerk he said the baM3 hal Z SIX."4 10 bJ mirrieti Replying to questions complainant said she 1 avourab'e to marryiQg ao long as defendant kept from the drink The intimacy ha1 been going on for fi ve months. It was a TIT W aQ^ t^le '3anus ^ad been withdrawn. --Ihe Magistrates, after a consultation, fined defendant 2s 6l for the damage, 103 and costs, amounting in all to £ 2 18s. Tne sum- mons for assault was dismissed and defend- ant bound over, himself iu £ 10 and another surety in a like sum, to keep the peace for six months. Defendant's brother David became surety for 910.
FISHGUARD, Finest Sowing Rape Seed, Fish,- tiard Supply Stores. Property Sale.—We would remind our readers ot the property sale to be held to-day (Thursday) at the Commercial Hotel. The auctioneer is Mr W L Williams, and the propeity, which is situate in the Wallis, offers admirable buildiug sites for residental purposes. Property Sale.—The Great Western Hotel has been sold, by private treaty, to a Mrs Sarah Price, of Swansea. Mr W R Carver, auctioneer, acted for the vendors, and Mr W James, auctioneer, Swansea, for the buyer. Agjinst Licensing Bill.—On Tuesday n Z5 evening Mr J Wynford Phillips, MP., L presented petitions from Pembrokeshire against the Licensing Bill. Z5 Afrel Holidays —Looking the pictures of health and vigour, Messrs W L Williams, and W Cuthbert Thomas, have arrived home from a short holiday at Jersey and Guernsey. Sports.—We are informed that Mr W. Jenner, of Letterston, purposes offering at this year's Fishguard Sports a silver cup, value three guineas, for a two mile haudieap bicycle race, the condition being that the race will onlv be open to cyclists owning Jenner's make machines. We would suggest, however, that the race should be confined to cyclists who are not prize-winners. Stowaways.—On Thursday evening last about ten o'clock a large steamer was observ- ed to enter Fisbguard bay. In answer to the signals a buat put off from shore and the fine vessel proved to be the s.s Manchester Port," bound to Buenos Ayres from Man- chester Its commander, too, was no. other than Capt Ivor Acraman, a Fishguard boy," and son of Capt and Mr Acraman, of Slade Terrace. He had six stowaways on board, undesirables whom he desired to land. A rather choppy sea was running at the time, but the captaia soon had the young fellows placed ashore by Mr Tom Owen. They then lost no time in tramping it up High-street towards Haverfordwest, and the steamer proceeded on its voyage, much to the disappointment of many who would have liked to shake hands with the successful Fishguardian. Mail Horse III.-On Saturday week last one of the horses attached to the Fishguard mail cart, fell down just when reaching Haverfordwest Railway Station, apparently from exhaustion. It is the property of the contractor, Mr Thomas, Commercial D otel, Haverfordwest, and was taken home where it was found to be suffering from inflammation. Medical C)fficers.-At the District Council meeting on Wednesday of last week the four Medical Officers of Health for the vaiious districts were again re appointed for twelve months, on the same terms as before, on the motion of Mr W G Eaton EvanK, seconded by Mr W J Vaughan.After considerable discussion it was decided that Mr J W Francis should be re-appointed Inspector and Surveyor for six months, in order that it may be seen if his health will improve. Welsh Natioral Show. -As much interest is aroused locally in respect to the Welsh National Agricultural Show at Aberystwyth, it will be learned with feelings, perhaps not wholly of approbation, that the sum of £ 00) will be awarded in prizes at the show which is to be held at Aberystwyth on August 3rd and 4th. His Majesty the King has shown his interest in the new Society by entering three exhibits. The chief objection to the project is the inaccessability of Aberystwyth from this end of South Wales. Accident. On Saturday evening last, whilst Capt Wm Owen, of the schooner County of Cork (belonging to Carnarvon), was returning to his vessel, he fell over the quay, sufetaiuing severe injuries and his head and (ace. Fortunately, he was accompanied by his son and Mr John Jones, of Lower Town, wtio immediately rendered the injured man's assistance and conveyed him to Mr W Reynolds' house, where he was attended by Drs Williams and O'Donnell, and under whose care he is making satisfactory progress towards recovery. Uur coffee trade is increasing constantly. Only one quality kept—the very best.— Fishguard Supply Stores.
Messrs Wm. Thomas and Co., of Liver- pool, owners of the sailing vessel Cambiian Monarch," have received a cablegram report- ing the drowning of r Robert Lewis (secoud officer), and five of the crew of that vessel at Talcuhino, in a boating accident. At the annual meeting of the executive committee of the Bala-Bangor Independent College on Tuesday, a sub-committee recom- meaHed the raising of a sum of S5,000 in five years for the purpose of new buildings. 1. you want a cup of really delicious tea try ours at 2s 6J per lb.

Cancer on the Increase. An Official and authoritative statement upon the above subject proves without doubt, by comparative statistics, that Cancer and Can- cerous Growth is lately on the increase amongst the inhabitants of Great Britain and especially so, Ireland. Unfortunately up to now medical men and scientists have not been able to account for this alarming state of affairs or provide a remedy. An Ointment called" MANNIN A" has established a won- derful reputation in South Africa, and about 18 months ago the preparation was brought to this Country, and has since been carefully tested in a limited area in the County of Pem- broke, Wales, with most satisfactory results, and has effected several Certified cures of Cancerous Growths, Lupus, Piles, Eczema, Blood poisoning, &c &c. This remarkable pre- paration can be obtained of all Chemists at Is d, 2s 9d, and 4s Gd per pot, for Ulcerated Wounds, Blood-poisoning, Eczema, &c.; and 2s 9d, 4s Gd, and 8s 6d per pot, for Cancer, Tumours, Lupus, &c. or will be sent post free direct from the Proprietors, MAIN-STREET, FISHGUARD.

NEWPORT, PEM Land Letting—As will be seen by the advertisement in another column the letting of the Rectory land will take place to-morrow (Friday). Mr W R Carver is the auctioneer engaged. A Native of Pembrokeshire.—The death occurred at Inkernnn street, LUnelly on Saturday of Mr Abraham Hughes, a retired builder and contractor. He was a native of Pembrokeshire, but had resided in Llaoelly for over 50 years, aul is well known and much esteemed. He was 78 years of age. He leaves two sons — Mr \V Hughes (head- master of the Pwll School), and Mr Arthur Uughes—and one daughter (Miss E A Hnsrhfs, the headmistress of Lakefield Infants' School). Accidents. — As Daniel Phillips, blacksmith, was engaged cuttiug grass at Cotham on Tuesday the scythe he was sharpening slipped and severed an artery of the left arm. Dr Havard was immediately summoned, render- ing effective and timely aid. —Recently Joseph Owen, now of Velindre, formerly of Newport. was riding a young horse when it reared and fell back upon its rider, who received some- what severe injuries. He was laid up several weeks but is progressing favourably. Sheep-worrying. —It is said that the dogs on the mountain are not altogether harmless, as several sheep are reported to have been pulled about somewhat by them. O vners of mischievous dogs should take means of render- ing such canines harmless. Music.—Iu the course of a vigorous sermon on the Voice of Oud" and the Silence of God," preached at St Mary's Church, New- port, by the Rev T M James, curate of Nevein, on Sunday evening last, the rev. gentleman took occasion to publicly congratu- late Mr H R Felix, the able conductor, and his faithful lieutenants in that and the ad- joining churches on the success of their efforts in the excellent festival of the united choirs of Newport, Nevern, and Dinas, which was held at Nevern Church on Whit-Monday. The secretary of the Deanery of Ardudwy Sunday School Festival, which is being yearly held at Barmouth, having read a report of the festival in the Llan," had written for a copy of the music book used, in the hope of having selections inserted in the new book now in course of preparation for next year's festival for that Deanery. Toe preacher thanked Mr Felix for his gratuitous services, characterising him as the enterprising and go-ahead mayor of Newport, and as one who had been a veritable god-send in the interests of choral singing in church circles, now es- pecially after the death and retirement of several of the veterans who had once been prominent in" the history of the diviue art of music in the district. One such veteran was present that evening in the person of Alder- man John Hughes, Pendre, whom the preach- er happily described as one of the pioneers of music, cne who had rendered it yeoman ser- vice in his day, and who now, like one of the eagles of the gods, was growing white iu the service ot God and of humanity. Referring to Saul he declared that worthy to have been head and shoulders above everybody else, and the admiration of the young ladies of Israel. Fishing.—A nice haul of salmon came in by the boat W. E. Gladstone," owned by Capt Ellis, on Tuesday. This is one of the catches that go towards making up some of the extensive leeway, successive seasons have created. Good luck for the future. Fair Cyclists, Newport wheelers of the gentler sex possess the courage and up-to- ideas of their city sisters they tsometimes cast aside musty conventions that cripple, cabin, and confine rural social life, and blos- som forth like gladiators on the war path. It would be roaming outside the range of critic- ism to say they have adopted the Bloomer rational costume, but it there were any ad- vantage in such habiliments many of New- port's lair would seize them and defy mere man's vulgar stare to dauut them. Last Thursday a party of ladies set off on a cycling tour to Llaudyssul, awheel. They went by way of Cardigan, and from there to their destination. That evening a telegram was received from one of the fair wheelers rived safe." That is business-like, with something of the ring of the honest athlete about it. The party consisted of Mrs Sbolton, Mrs (Dr) Havard, iVliss Williams, Mauritius, and Miss Mary Davies. They purpose spend- ing a week whirling through the lovely scen- ery abounding in the district they are visit- ing. Newport ladies' example is worthy of emulation by their sisters at Fishguard, Goodwick iiud district. Dinas ladies are not backward in cycling, but they are usually accompanied by their sterner brothers. New- port ladies bear the palm for courage and their indifference to the jibes of mere man. Brighter Prospects.—The space of a week has effected some slight improvement in the season's prospectH at Newport, quite a num- ber of health-seekers having arrived within the last few days, including Mr VV J Morris, Court House, and Mr and Mrs Lewis, School House, Letterston, at the Angel Temperance Hotel. At Brynymor (Capt Ellis) are Mrs Col Leach, Tenby, and Miss Lloyd, Corston. Early in July, Mr and Mrs Bowen and family, Llwyngwair, are expected at Rock House.-— At Ondera House, Mr Moxham. Mr aud Mrs Griffiths and family, from Barry are spending holidays. Tourists.—Theattent:on of those intending to pay a visit to the pretty salubrious water ing place is drawn to the advertisement respecting the coaches run by Mr Thomas Cromlech House, and whose coaching equip' ment will be found^ equal to the best for com" fort and safety. Tourist tickets are issued by these road vehicles at reduced fares It should be borne in mind also that tourist tickets are obtainable at any of the railway stations to Crymmych for Newport one of the very few really sequestered places within fairly easy distance of a railway system. Those requiring seclusion and, at tbe same me .truly bracing air of a watering place, will find Newport to their liking. teac ing.-—Mr Etnlyn Morgan, son of the Rev Aaron Morgan, Blaenffos, officiated on Sunday morning at Bethlehem Church, aod preacaod an able sermon to a large congre gatiou. la the evening to a numerous gathering the Rev Phillips, Blaenpant, lJccufJled the pulpit gave an earnest and thoughthful sermon The respected pastor, Rev D J Evans officiated at Middle Mill, Solva. From Sea.—Mr J T Isaac, Upper St Mary- street, ship's carpenter, paid a short visit home last week-end. This is practically the only sea rews of interest to Newport except- ing the fact that Mr A Riyrnond, of the a s. Le Poite," is a native of Newport, though brought up at Dinas by an aunt.

i) I N A S CH.OS. The La Porte.—Disquieting news reached Dinas last week end of the lojs of the s.s. Let Porte, of London, the second mate of which was Capt Alfre 1 Raymond, Maesteg House, Dinas, who with the captain and ■ is missing. Information received g-" ;s show that an explosion occurred ir. the v, on the 9th inat. in the hold of the ship, and amongst the coal cargo. She was then about 300 miles from land, and speedily foundered. All the crew, however, were able to tike to their boats, one of which was in charge of the captain, the other being under the coumand of the chief officer. A course was then made for land. For three days the boats kept com- pany, but on the night of the third day they got parted. On the morning of the fourth the chief officer's boat lost sight of the cap- tain's. After a search, and finding no trace of the other boat, the chief officer continued his j Hlnwy, and seven days from the founder- in he landed safely at Port Nolloth. After communicating the news of the loss of the Li Porte to the owners, he at o ica chartered a tug and went off in search of the captain's boat. On this search he is still eugaged The owners of the La Porte have no doubt that the balance of the crew not yet accounted for have either been picked up by a passing steamer or have landed on some uninhabited part of the coast.—The opinion of Capt Rich- ards, Hill Park, Dinas, that there is every probability of the boat having reached some uninhabited part, aud that the crew have not yet had the chance to open communication, is worthy of much consideration, for the able venerated Salt is as familiar with that part of th3 world as he is with Dinas; he knows every inch of it, so to speak. Mrs A. Raymond, the wi'e and relatives have the sincere sympathy of the inhabitants generally, who sincerely trust that Capt Raymond is safe. On Wednesday morning the news reached Cardiff that the second boat, con- taining among other- the capt in and second mate, Mr A. Raymond, ba; reaohed Swakot- lumh, on the African coast, near Port Nolloth. Pel ils of the S-a. -Tnere arrived home on Friday last, almost on the anniversary of a severe accident he met with, Mr Geo Richaids, Cilwencu, who had both his legs broken while at sea aboard the full-tigged ship Cyproinene," o twitud bound to Salina Cruz. As was reported in the E.ho at the time, Mr Richards, first officer of the Cypromeue,' was knocked down by a heavy sea and re- ceived compound fractures of both legs. Being some distance from land the captain set the right leg, broken just under the knee; but the left leg had several small bones shattered and presented rather a complicated task for an amateur surgeon to tackle. However, the best that could be done was done for the sufferer, and two months afterwards Salina Cruz, Mexico, was reached. Here no surgeon could be found sufficiently confident to under- take thu operation of re-setting the limb, which had knitted together to some extent. Nothing could be done but to continue the voyage to San Frainisco, where the ship arrived seven months after Mr Rishards' accident, during which period he had suffered, as migat have been expected, most excruciat- ing pain with the unset limb, while the right one had practically healed. Immediately on touching S in Francisco the sufferer was taken into hospital and, rather than take chloroform submitted !o the fi: st operation of re-setting the leg just as he was—heroism and endu- rance reminiscent of surgical work in Nelson's time, before aurcithetics were in vogue. When the second operation became necessary, however, the patient submitted himself to the limpid fluid,' and so was spared much agony. Though somewhat pale he is wonderfully well considering the terrible suffering he has en- dured during the pist year. The voyage home on oue of the liuers served to brace him up in some measure, and the vigorous air of his native place, coupled with home comforts, will no doubt fully restore him to health and vigour. Haymaking.—The Rev Geo Morgan, Ty- hen, set the merry mowers and haymakers to work on Monday last; crops are heavy and there is promise of favourable weather. A good leader, good crops and good weather cannot be other than propitious to a success- ful inauguration to the hay harvest Singular A««W A Lo-^told 8tW c ou0iua to *.lt VVm.

Holidays.—Mr B 0 Davies and friend, of Pawson and Leafs', London, are holiday. making at Dinas. Yetybontbicn. — Under the auspices of the Yetybontbren Improvement Association, a pipe has been laid to the well near Banky- ffynon, a wall built, and a substantial im- provement in the water supply effected. Capt Richards superintended the work, valued at about X5, and which was carried out by various helpers including a few of the juven- iles who carried stone, &c., while the masons built the wall. It will be seen that while Jericho an 1 other places are agitating and planning similar projects tin west-aders buckle to and carry out the job themselves. They deserve praise for their industry.

There is a limit inside which they are prohibited and those in authority should see that there is no encroach- iug on local fishing prtaaives.
