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.

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.
