SuccesfI. Locdl readers of the London Daily Chronicle," will evince some satisfac- tion in the knowledge that the night editor of that influential paper is Mr Harry Jones, of Llanelly, a young journalist who won dis- tinction under Mr T. P. O'Connor on the staff of the Sun." Mr Jones has just relin- quished the important position of managing- editor of the Plymouth Daily Mercury." He is one of three very clever boys who com- menced at the lowest rung of the journalistic ladder at Llanelly; one other is Mr Dd Davies, editor of the "Swansea Post." Ply. OT,it'iiat-is of every political and religious journalist and gentlemen, at a brilliant gath- ering held recently at the Royal otel, Ply- rtou-h. His brother, Mr Brinley Jones, is the successful editor of the Llanelly Guardian." Death.—There died on Wednesday mo n- ing at Slade, John John, aged about 25, the son of Mr and Mrs T John, after an illness extending over many months. Deceased was up to lately a labourer on the Pier Works. Paralysis was the cause of death. At Llanelly.—A native of Fishguard, tVTrs M A Barnes, daughter of Capt and Mrs George, High-street, succumbed on Friday last at Llanelly, at the early age of 36, after a severe illness. At the funeral, which took place on Monday last at the Llanelly Ceme tery, the officiating minister was the Rev T Phillips, son of Mrs Phillips, Main-street, Fishguard, and in his remarks at the grave- side said that he had known the deceased as a play-mate and at school, and ever possessed characteristics that caused woman to shine brightest in the world's esteem. At the last closing scene, said Mr Phillips, deceased felt herself entering the I Fold of the Good Shep- o herd.' That was a beautiful expression, and shewed her undying faith to the end. There were numerous wreaths, and the attendanoe was large Deceased leaves a husband and two children to mourn their sad loss. Capt and Mrs George have taken care of the motherless children. Cricket Concert To-morrow (Friday) evening a concert in aid of the funds for the new cricket pitches at Penwallis will be given at the Temperance Hall, some very able talent will be in evidence, and it is to be hoped that the good folk will rally round and support this local organization for a purely local and worthy object, in preference to out- side entertainments of a private speculative character. In reference to a so-called sacred concert at the Temperance Hall last Sunday evening An Observer expresses surprise to find even a few worshippers who call them- selves Christians patronising such shows on the Sabbath. Both the Vicar and several of the ministers gave timely advice for the guid- ance of their respective flocks, but some erred, notwithstanding. Some of the Ii sacred concerts are more like penny gaffs in a city slum than anything else, and those who patronize such add nothing to their credit. Gas Stoves.—The following might prove of interest to our local readers Replying to a correspondent on the utility of gas stoves in warm weather the Editor of "Our Home" says You will find no difficulty in keeping your kitchen cool if you employ a gas stove during the hot weather, You should apply to the gas company of your district, and if you have the gas laid on in the house you will be able to hire a gas stove for a small quarterly payment. If you have no gas in the house, and feel that you hardly like to go to the expense of buying the fittings and having the gas brought in, take advantage of the com- pany s slot meter stove. With the use of such a stove a higher charge is made for the gas supplied, but the difference in price pays the company for their expence in putting in the gas with its fittings and the stove. You can have a stove which takes a penny in the slot, or a shilling in the slot, and when the gas which either coin purchases has been con- sumed, the meter automatically cuts off the supply, until another coin is added. The light does not cease suddenly, for a gradual lowering of the light gives warning that more money is required. The South Metropolitan Gas Company was the first one to adopt the system, and the popularity of the slot meter can be judged by the fact 'that in 1892, whef they were first installed, they produced £ 17^> in coppers, and six years later the increa^ number produced X183,600, and every f°?r finds an increase in the number of metetS in use." Finest Sowil g Ripe St el.—FisVSuar<^ Supply Stores. The Rev j. T. Evans, rector of Slow, Gloucester, who is on h;s annual holiday visit, preached ably at Grauston Ohuroh, on Sun- day morning last. Accident.—Mr Tom Perkins, Hendrewen, whilst at Newport fair on M mdltY last, re- ceived a tremendous kick from a colt on one of his ler;s, narrowly escaping fatti injury. Dr Havard was at once in attendance on Mr Perkins and, after restoratives had been ap- plied, he was able to return horns, where he is slowly recovering from his somewhat severe injuries. Police Inspection, Yesterday (Wednes- day), the whole of the North Pembrokeshire Division of Constabulary paraded at the Police Station, and drilled by Police-Sergt. Carr, and afterwards inspected by Capt Perry and the Chief Constable, Mr T. Ince Webb-Bowen, the Deputy-Chief, Mr Phillips, being also present. The men presented a smart appearance and favourably impressed their superior officers. Cells, books, &o., were subsequently inspected, and everything found in splendid order. Messrs Stewart and Owen's Pierrott's are expected to visit Fishguard next week and 0 give a series of open-air concerts on Penslade There are two ways of making money nowadis.

DINAS CROSS. Signs of Sympathy. -Dinasites failed not .1 in their sympathy for the bereaved ou Thurs- day last, when the remains of John Lloyd, the unfortunate man who was fatally injured on the Pier Works, were brought to the Parish Church-yard for interment. Several conveyances joined the procession of mourn- ers on the way from Fishguard, where the body lay until after the inquest. Most of the near relatives attended, a sister of the de- ceased travelling from Cardiff. The Rev J. Williams, re tor, officiated, and the solemn burial service was read with pathos. Many were deeply moved at the final leave taking. The widow has the sympathy of everyone in the parish. Success.—Capt Thomas Williams, of Smithfield, paid a short visit home on Satur- day last and returned on Monday to take command ot the Garnet Hill," a fine vessel in which be has been a popular officer for very many years. No one is more deserving of the promotion than Capt Williams, for he has always been a most conscientious and painstakiug officer. We wish him continued success in his new capacity. The •' Garnet Hill loads coal at Newport, Mon., for Caleta Colenso. Gideon Tea.—Owing to the death last week at Dinas, and now the hay harvest, Capt Richards, wishes us to say that the Gideon Sunday School tea party is postponed to the beginning of August.

Presentation.—At Tabor Sunday Sjhool VL. ment as superintendent, presented the Sun- day school with a beautiful gong. He was cordially thanked for the gift.—The Pastor was absent officiating at Moylgrove, and the Rev R. Griffiths, Betbabara, conducted the service at Tabor in the evening. Visitors.

Dr Greener has left for Cardiff Jericho Well.—The workmen at the Vron have shown that there is an ample supply of water for Jericho,and Inspector Pbillips is ex- pected at at an early date to direct the laying of pipes. Lectures. Through the efforts of Dr Havard aud Mr Dewi Harries the inhabitants of the place will have the pleasure on Friday and Saturday next of hearing lectures on gardening by the County Council lecturer. —Owing to his duties at the funeral oa Thursday last, Mr Dewi Harrie3 was unable to attend the Board of Guardians and District Council, much to his regret, as there was very important business to transact.
TREY LVE. Presentations-It was rumoured some time ago that two of the members of the Trevine Improvement Committee were to be present ed with testimonials as a token of respect and esteem, viz,, the R.*v T v u:„ iQa^_ —w A I u uucOj uu UJO M ^irCa r an°ther sphere of usefulness, and Mr W H Thomas, on the occasion of his marriage.—The presentation as far as Mr Jones was Concerned took place on the 27th inst. The following members were pre- sent—Messrs Tom Williams, J W Evans, J John, Ralph Davies, J Price, J Phillips, fl John, T V Jones, W Howell (chairman), and Miss Dorothy Thomas, secretary.-The, Chair- man, in opening the proceedings, said that he was sorry the testimonials were not more valuable so as to express more adequately their appreciation of the garvices of their friends. He hoped Mr Jones would accept the present as a smal] tokeu of their good feelings and good wishes." T Williams expressed his sorrow at M' Jone3' departure and wished him happiness In bis new sphere of labour.—Mr J John coupled the name of Mrs Jones in his wlshes for their future wel- fare and prosperity "I their new home.— Mr J. W. Evans siid he was glad to be present when the testimonial was given, but felt that there was an undertone of sadness in the meeting at rdr Jones' leaving.— Mr J i,e Price expressed his Sorrow that Mr Jones was leaving, aod wished him every success in his new spbere;Other members followed in the same otrain.-The presentation was then made bf Miss D Thomas. It consisted of a writing desk with the following inscrip- tion o presented to T V Jones by the -I'r-e- vine Improverueut Coiqunittee." Mr Jones feelin,lf reP led and thanked his friends for the leslmoUlal, and said that he grieved in his bei;"t to part from Trevine.—He valued the gift not so much for its intrinsic value as for tl1 good feelings and good wishes of 0 whi^ 't Was an expression,"—It is but right to that a few friends outside the Com- mjftee, as well as the members, contributed towards the testimonials. If you want a cup of ieally delicious tea uy ours at 2s 6d per lb. It is economical besides, goes twice as far.- Fishguard Supply Stores.
LLANSITNAN, ThLfuueral of Mrs Phoebe Rees, aged over bO, of Dolau, Dwrbash, took place on Monday at Llanfer, the Rev Dan Davies, nernion, Fishguard, officiating. Deceased was Ali aimiable Christian woman. W
GOODWICK. Another Pier Worker Injured.—On Sat- urday morning last Jeremiih Walsh was following his employment at the Pier works when a stone rolled down the hfap and caused severe iujuries to his feet and le^s. He was can led to his lo Igings at Duffryn on the m 0 y stretcher, and lafcpr in the day was convey to Haverfordwest Infirmary for treatment. Labour in Vain,— The "Hired Man" writes:—A pretty game, reminiscent of childish days when we used to driv^invaders off what we called our own plot of earil," is being played at Gojdwick. The /other day the District Council levelled defwn an earth bank along side the road leading to the huts, effecting a much needed improvement. Since then the game his begun. Some wooden .stakes were driven down on the outside of a liitle plot which is a continuation of the narrow strip the Council cleared and added to the roadway. Last week some iron posts took the place of the stakes. Whitevcr may be the object of the posts is best known-to those who fixed them. However, two indus- trious maidens set to removing them and, having succeeded, they fling them out of sight. Back ClllJe the planters and, after asking in vain for an explanation, proceeded to re-insert the iron junks. Said one of the stern planters, wf'il make them perspire to get these up again." This in the vernacular, not thinking that the fair trojons were watch. ing operations an'! keeping an open ear for whisperings. The planters had no sooner re-pegged out the patch of mother earth, which nobody owns yet to which everyone lays claim, than the fair diggers were about it aain with garden implements and, with a long and a strong pull, rooted up the offend- ing pillar of iron and it was once more tumbled over into the ditch There are some games not worth the candle, they say, but this one is considered a very profitable one to play at, particularly in this right little tight little island of ours. Convalescent.—Friends will be pleased to know that Mr Thomas Nicholas, carpenter, who nigh lost his h ind by blood poisoning following a very slight injury, is practically retored to health, though the fqi-tfinger of his left hand is not of much use. Farewell.-Oii Sunday evening last the Rev Rice Jones took leave of the parish, as curate, and delivered an appropriate sermon before a numerous congregation. After the service Mr Jones [Shook each member by the hand, and bade farewell. He leaves for Dafen to-day (Thursday), to take up position as curate. For Lloyd's Widow.- As will be seen in another column the officials and employees of the Pier Works, gave handsomely oa Satur- day last towards John Lloyd's widow, no less than il8 15 j being collected. Some of the men gave very fr-ely. To the Eiitor of the "County Echo." Sir,-Kindly give publicity to the following in your widely read paper:- farewell presentation to the Rev. E. Jones, on the occasion of his resignation of the Curacy of Llanwndn, and departure to the Curacy of Daten. The above took place at the Post Ollice, on Tuesday evening the 28th inst. The collection amounting to £ 10 was made by Miss John, assisted by the Misses Willian » of Cnwcsandy, and in a sllJall way by Mr Canning. In coni. mencing the proceedings, the Rev J Bowen, vicar of St n Lawrerce, proposed, and Mr Canning seconded, that Sir Hugh Owen take the ch ur. Sir Hugh Owen in the course of his remarks said In all sublunary things, as far as my* :il~~ L-'—" H °'wavs n, mixture of pleasure with pain aud such is the case tins evening. We have met to perform a painful duty, namely, to say farewell to an old friend, who has been amongst us for the past four years, I mean Mr Jones, but that painful duty has its pleasant aspect also, in that we know that the distance which will sever us, is not so great as to preclude the probability that we shall see Mr Jones again occasionally. During my connection with °Mr y 11 Jones, as Churchwarden, I have always found him most assiduous and attentive to his duties, kind and considerate in visiting his parishioners, especially when there was sickness, and even en his small income doing many acts of kindness and benevolence. I am glad the parishioners have given expression to their feelings in contributing to this presentation which although not commen- surate with Mr Jones's deserts is nevertheless most acceptable a« :t spontaneous proof of good will. I have great pleasure in presenting this purse of gold to Mr Jones, and, as I said before I hope we shall soon see him in Goodwick again no matter what he comcs for, whether to visit'his fnends, to attend a Harvest Thanksgiving, or on his honeymoon." ° °' Rev R Jonfis in reply said Sir Hugh Owen and genklemeUy I thank you sincerely for the kindly expressions you have made towards me, and for the presentation. I value it, not so much for its intrinsic worth, as that it gives me tangible proof of the good-will of the great majority of my parishioners. During my four years as Curate of Uanwnda, I have, 1 can conscientiously say, done my best t') farther the interests of the parish, and it is most gratifying to iiud on my departure such a cheering recognition of good feeling. I have had many difliculties to contend with, but I believe I am leaving the parish in a healthier state and better tone than when I came. In my Vicar, I have always found as kind and considerate a Splllt as it is possible for any Vicar to have. In Sir Hugh Owen I have always found fi, a coun«eller, and a brother, and I must thank you one and all. I thank Miss John and those concerned in the collection for their efforts. I thank Mr and Mrs Canning for the ready and disinterested help they have always afforded me in the Sunday School and I will close my re- maiks with the words of the text of my farewell sermon, The peace of Cod which ptssetli all understanding keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus." Mr Canning quoted Sir Hugh Owen's words that the occasion was a painful one, but tempered with a ray of sunshine, owing to the possibility and the probability that Mr Jones may visit us occasionally in tli-j future. During the past 3 years he had been in close touch with Mr Jones, owing to the Sunday School, &c., and had always found him a true friend. It gave him pleasure to look back and reflect that lie had been of some use to Mr Jones in his labours. He was sure that if Mr Jones did visit Goodwick in the future he would receive a hearty welcome from the majority of his former parishioners. He thanked Mr Jones for his kindly remarks, and for the uniform kindness and courtesy with which he always treated him and wished him every success, r ros- perity and happiness in his new sphere of labour. Rev J. Bowen, as an outsider, said he and Mr Jones had been old friends for many years, and he, personally, would iniss him very much. When one makes friends, especially in advanced years, it is hard to part with them. He also could see a ray of sunshine through the sorrow of parting, in that Mr Jones was (1) not going very far away, and (2), he was going to a place wheie he would be much better off, both financially and as regards his work. He was glad to see such a hearty and spontaneous expression of good-will from the parishioners which showed that Mr Jones was held in high esteem by then. Mr Jones was an energetic, conscientious man, a thoroughly good preacher, and a kind friend in need. He (Mr Bowen) hoped that with theinllux of visitors to Goodwick in the future Mr Jones would become a familiar figure, and he also hoped that Mr Jones would not forget to come and visit him. Mr Sansom agreed with the sentiments of the meeting, and expressed his regret at Mr Jones' departure: but at the same time he could see cause for looking at the cheerful side of the picture, in that Mr Jones was going to a superior place, and would be much better off than here. He wished Mr Jones every success and prosperity in his new curacy, and hoped that lie would occasionally visit Goodwick, where he was sure he would receive hearty welcome. He paid a tribute to Mr Jones' preaching as being very earnest and effective, and of a style not often met with in a small parish, and hoped his next congre- gation would appreciate it equally. J. V V
