The s.s. Lillian Ashore —The names of Mess s Harries, Bros, of Swansea, always arouses icq iiry at Fisbguard,the birthplace of the successful brothers. On Welnesday of last week on-- of their steamers, the s.s. "Lillian," 1,100 tons, from Tunis with cargo, while making Swansea Bay, ran aground near Bob's cave on the Mumbles Head owing to a break down of her steering gear. It is feared that some of her bottom plates have sustained ingury. C4pt P. Jenkins, a Pembrokeshire man—it is known that Messrs Harries Bros, usually employ Pembrokeshire seamen-in an interview, said the weather was favourable as the steamer came up channel. There was a moderate wind blowing, and all went well until they got well inside the Mixen Buoy, when they put to starboard so as to avoid a little ketch which was in the way. Immedi- ately after passing the ketch they put head to port, when a pin in the steering gear dropped out, and the gear becoming disconnected, the Lillian was left at the mercy of the wind and current. All hands were called on deck, but in spite of all endeavours she went on the rocks, where she stranded. A hole was knock in hr bows under the water-line, and during the afternoon the engines were kept at full steam pumping water out of her. At that particular time th i propeller was out of the water, the vessel itself being only in a few feet of water. On Thursday the work of lightening the Lillian by unshipping her cargo of 1 4GG tons of calmine and silver, lead and other ores proc eded apase and on Satur- day morning she was successfully iloated off the Mumbles rocks. She has sustained sevete damage to her keel and lower plate3 and will enter dry dock to undergo extensive repairs. Lifeboat.

Connecting Liuk. -We received the follow- ing unsolicited testimonial from Liverpool House, Aberoarn, on Saturday I-Ast: -11 Dear Sir,—Enclosed is 63 6d for the Echo. Old associations and connections are broken with my native place.—The land of my happy childhood and youth has become almost, so far as the inhabitants are concerned, a strange land; how valuable, then, is your paper, sent here so faithfully evjry Friday t, L morning. It is the one connecting link with the dear old place, and, as such, highly trea- sured. Accept my best thanks and best wishes.The above are little tokens of ap- preciation which prove that the "Echo" is fulfilling its mission. Illness.—Everyone of our readers will re- gret to learn that the able and diligent post- master of Fishguard has been laid up for nearly a fortnight with a very painful and somewhat serious illness. We are also pleas- ed to say that he was able to venture out for the first time yesterday, and on Saturday be, with Mrs Davies and Master Cyril, proceed for the annual vacation, and we sincerely hope the much needed rest and change will fully restore Mr Davies to his former health and vigour. Duriug his illness, Miss Morgan, Br^aog, has,with her usual kindness, render- ed much valued and efficient assistance in the routine of postal work at the office-work which month by month increases with the growth of trade, through the works and other causes, in the district. In spite of this there are few, if any, offices in the Principal- ity so admir ably conducted as Fishguard post office, and there is no Postmaster and staff more reiiible, proficient, readv, court- eous and obliging. rhis is irrefutable. Sanitation. — 0 1 Friday afternoon last several members of the Parochial Committee visited the ground at the back of West-street, whereon it is intended to build a number of workmen's cottages. They were unanimously of opinion that, to provide adequate drainage for the proposed new buildings, a main drain should be constructed along the road to Goodwick with its outflow into a septic tank erected in the vicinity of Goohvick bridge. The question will be considered at the next monthly meeting. Drainage Committee.—Haytime and other hindrances are accountable for the sparse atten- dance at the Schoolroom on Mondav evening last of the drainage committee, only Messrs W. J. Vaughan, D. Rees, E. J. Radford, Capt Howells, and W. Cuthbert Thomas putting in an appearance. The first to arrive was Dr J. M. Owen, who had been especially requested to attend, and to do so cancelled an engagement on board the "Ibex" to dine with the officials and directors of the G.W.R. Company. Entrance Examinations. About seventeen elementary pupils from the various schools in the district sat for entrance scholarship examin- ations at the Intermediate school on Saturday last. As there were only eight last N-Var who tried for the entrance scholarship it will be seen that more interest is manifested in secondary education. G.F.S. Favoured with brilliant weather the local branch of the Girls' Friendly Society, so well conducted by Mrs Evans, the industrious wife of the Vicar, to the number of about 80 journeyed to Newport on Friday afternoon last in brakes, under the guidance of the Vicar and Mrs Evans, and partook of tea on the Warren in that pleasant seaside town. At Newport several of the church ladies there very kindly assisted in the dispensing of the tea and edibles which were as usual of tip-top quality. Before going to the Warren service was conducted in the Parish Church by the Rev W. Evans, and a short but able sermon was preached by the Rev J. James, assistant missioner of the Diocese. After tea Newport Castle was inspected by the party through the kind permission of the present occupants. During the afternoon bonuses were distributed to those girls who had retained their situations for two years. Of past annual outings of this very worthy institution that of Friday last will be remembered as one of the most en- joyable on record, thanks to the forethought and care of Mrs Evans and the Vicar.
