Decrease in Pauperism.—In his report at 'd Haverfordwest Board of Guardians last |rek Mr Bircham, the Inspector, in giving a ■caparison of the statistics, said that during 'e past ten years there had been a very 'ght increase in the population in the Haver- ,?dwest Union, and that had been chiefly in e Urban Districts, whilst in the agricultur- parishes there had been a decrease. The teable value had increased 21 per cent, the '>pulation 2 per cent, and the pauperism had creased from 4 8 ten years ago to 3*5, equal a decrease of 27 per cent. There bad also en a considerable reduction in the amount expenditure, which he thought was very tisfactory in view of the improvements they d made in the Workhouse, &c., the adoption a more expensive dietary table, &c. The spector quoted a number of statistics show- ;g the Haverfordwest Union occupied a very jrourable position, and said he thought the uardians who had retired had done good )rk. If their successors could do as well- d he did not see why they should not, the penditure would be still further decreased. 3 pointed out that their reduction of expen- 'ture had not been brought about at the ex- mse of putting any hardship upon individuals d especially referred to the advisability of ving adequate relief to widows and children, .pecially in cases were the woman was not le bodied.

NEVERN. Obittiary.-Wo deeply regret to record the death of Miss Mary Lewis, Quarrel, which sad event took place after several weeks illness on Saturday last at the age of 78 years. The deceased had been in the employ of the Llwyngwair family for a long number of years, and the different members of that family, noted for its benevolence, did their beat to comfort and relieve her in her declin- ing days. Her relations, too, nursed her to the very last with tender and watchful care. She was medically attended by Dr Havard. The funeral took place on Tuesday at 3 p.m. at Nevern Churchyard. At the house, the Revs J 0 Evans itd T M James (vicar and curatj), conducted a short service. At the church, the psului and lesson were read by the Rev T M James, while the Rev J 0 Evans feelingly odiciated at the grave-side.

PON1 VANE. A specitl meeting of the Llanychllwydog (U.D) School Board was held at the School- room on Thursday, when there were present Messrs B Vaughau (chairman), Edward Wil- liams. Ezekiel Williams, B Thomas, 0 Hughes, W. Rees, J. Evans, and J. S. Evans. The meeting had been convened to consider the question of attendance which is very unsatis- factory to the board, disheartening to the teachers, and reflects no credit upon some of the parents. The board is determined, though its term of office is very limited, to take effec- tive measures against the habitual offenders in this respect in order to convince them that it is their bounden duty to send their children to school regularly. It was resolved that in- asruuch as no reason had been sent to the meeting as would justify them for the non- attendance of their children, to inform Miss M. Hariies. Russia Messrs J Vaughan, Tre- ginnon; E Harries, Gilfach and T Jones, Soar, that if their children will be absent more than a day from school till the summer vacation proceedings will be taken against tbem.-On learning that the County Council Architect had visited the school, and had re- ported the ventilator recently fixed in the Schoolroom as being quite useless, it was re- solved to ask the Samtary Inspector to visit the school in his official capacity, and that the person to whom the contract of ventilating the Schoolroom had been entrusted should be asked to meet the Inspector to hear his views on the work, which was to be completed, as per specifications, to the satisfaction of the Sanitary Inspector.
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 ir»crea^ amongst the inhabitants of Great Britain and especially so, Ireland. Unfortunaitely up to now medical men and scientists ha\ been able to account for this alarming state of affairs or provide a remedy. An Ointment called "MANNINA" 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, Wale3, with most satisfactory results, and has effected several Certified cures of Cancerous Growths, Lupus, Piles, Eczema, Blood poisoning, &c &c.

MATHRY. In order that the famous Petty Sessions may be carried on as usual, notice was given last week to the County authorities that under the new Licensing Act the premises of the Farmer's Arms, Mathry, now used as the Sessional Court cannot be utilised for that important purpose after March 1007 Nothing was done in the matter at so early a stigp, but it was pointed out that new premises would have to be built-with which everyone is in accord. Look at the amount of business transacted every month at the sessions on the hill, and yet Wales is so very pious that goes with common consent.
Pembrokeshire Folklore. The following article (by Cadrawd') is re- printed from the South Wales Daily News for July 12th An old wizard in North Pembrokeshire used to siy that he obtained the power of bewitching in the following manner :-The bread of his first communion he pocketed. He made pretence at eating it first of all, and then put it in his pocket. When he went out from the service there was a dog meeting him by the gate, to which he gave the bread thus selling his soul ti) the devil. Ever after he had been in the possession of the power to bewitch. The old man said that this was the nniversal method of initiation into the secrets of the "black art," which was so mt.c1 talked about by the old people. Divination. To find out the name of your husband or wife beforehand. A door-key was placed on Ruth chap, i, and the 16th verse, and the Bible was tied so that the book could be lifted by the end of the key. The book was suspended by the two index fingers and the above verse repeated, the person divining keeping in his or her mind any name which they wished to try whether it was the name of their future husband or wife. If the diviner had fixed upon the right name, the Iliblc would turn round during the recital of the verse if not, the book would not move. Another method was to peel a turnip in a narrow strip,, beginning at the apex and ending at the junction of the podium. The skin must not break off, but peel off in one unbroken strip. Place the turnip, which must be quite clean and without a spot <. f skin, behind the entrance door. The first person that comes into the house, of the opposite sex to the diviner will have the same Christian name as that of the future husband or wife. The Crimean War seen in the skies. About six months before the outbreak of the Crimean War, in 1853, John Meyler, Cilciffeth, s iw a strange image in the sky. lie was return- ing home late from Morville, and when nearing lVnterwin he saw the image of armies in the skies. There were several battalions at first, and they increased in number till they spanned the heavens. There were two-opposing forces, and he could distinctly see the image of mflh falling and of horses galloping across the firmament, and the clashing of great masses of men. He was so tenilied that he called at Penbank and cilled the attention of Mr James Morris, who lived at the place at the time, and he saw the same thing. This strange phenomenon appeared for about two hours. The Little Men. In South Pembrokeshire there is a belief that the rings ofter to be seen in fields, meadows, etc., are made by fairies. These are rings of dark green, darker than the grass, often to be seen in pasture lands. In the mushroom season these rings are covered with mushrooms. The people believe that the Little Men," as the fairies are called in Pemkrokeshire, were dancing there during the night, hence the mushrooms in the morning. Magpies. To meet a piat (the South Pembrokeshire dialect word for magpie), the bird of omen, was a sure sign of a misfortune. The following is the local tradition :— To meet one piat, certain bad luck To meet two piats, is certain good luck To meet three piats, foretells a burying To meet four piat, foretells a wedding. Carrion Crow. If the carrion crow makes three circles round a field, croaking the while, the owner of that field will have heavy losses in cattle shortly after. Dogs' Double Sight. Dogs arc reported to possess double or second sight, i.e., they can see a spectral funeral, ghost, etc., aud hear things that transpired in the super- natural or unseen world. If a dog howls in the night, or barks at the moon or stars," it is put down as a forerunner of death in the near future. Johnny John, of Bobblefcon, and the Fairies. Johnny was a natoiious character, and one night whilst walking in his garden a fairy came to him in the form of a greyhound, and passed between his legs, carrying him away at a lightening pace on his back. He brought him through a thornbush that a blackbird would not lly through. He was away for a few seconds merely, according to his own idea but when he returned, which he succeeded in doing when the greyhound happened to ^tumble against something and he jumped off, he found that his friends had iiiissed him exactly a fortnight. The Game of Knappen. This game was much in vogue in South Pem- brokeshire sixty or seventy years ago. Some say that the last .great match was played at Crswell Quay, some forty years ago, between the young men of Pisgah, Cresselly, and Williainston Quarries on the one side, and those of Lawrenny on the other. The game may be described as follows :-The ball was a wooden one, made invariably of bramble root, which was supposed to be harder and more durable than any other wood, and it would not split. Each one carried a bandy, made of hazel or ash, the same in shape as a golf club. There would be sometimes 20 or even 50 men a-side. The course must be a long, flat stretch of ground, from three to six miles long, and the ball was started right at the middle of the plain, of course. The leader who won the toss would throw up his bandy into the air and catch it in the handle as near the middle as he could, and this would be measured from where he had laid hold of it upwards by handwidths. His opponent would catch in the stick close to where he held it, then the other, and so on to the end. The one who could cover the last part with the width of his hand would get the first hit at the ball. If perchance an inch or even half an inch would not be covered by the last hand, the other would catch it with finger and thumb, and if he could with that grasp wave the bandy nine times round his head the fiist hit was his, if not it was the other's. Two poles were set up, one at each goal, and each side would play as best they could, hitting the ball towards their goal. The time when the country folks used to play at this and other games was chiefly Sunday. It is mentioned that about the last game played on Pisgah Hill was when there was baptising in the Cresswell river, by a minister of the name of H Evans, of Neyland. The young folks of Cresselly and dis- trict were pitted against those of Lawrenny. They fiist of all went down to the river to witness the baptism of some persons, and after the cere- mony was over they spent the remainder of the afternoon playing knappen in an adjoining field, while the older, and those who were members of the chapel, held their afternoon service. The evening was spent atCresswell Quay public house, drinking, and there was some lighting towards the end. Churching and Christening in the Pa it. The midwife would go along with the mother and child to church. The child was brought to be christened, and the mother to be churched. The midwife always curried the child. A slice of bread and butter, or bread and cheese, was also brought by the midwife (white or wheatau bread, which was most scarce in those days), and given to the first person they met of the sex opposite to that of the child on their way to church. A s ory is told that Parson Itees, of Jeffreston, was met by a party, who gave him the bread and cheese, which he took and ate without any ado. The custom was supposed to ensure plenty to-the child through life, and keep it from want.

Only One Second between Time and Eternity, and-" SOME time ago a wealthy Company Promoter was, with several friends, taking a short cut along a portion of the Highland Railway near Grantown, where there is a very deep and almost perpendicular cutting, a very sharp curve, and (ex- cept for»a goat or a monkey) no possible egrees within fully a hundred yards. The party con- sisted of four gentlemen and three ladies. When about half way through the cutting they were overtaken by a railway porter who, almost breathless with haste, informed them that by running they had just time to get clear of the cutting before the express due at that spot at 3,3) passed. Each member of the party 2 instantly consulted his or her watch-all valuable gold ones—but no two of them agreed, nor did any of them agree with that of the railway porter. My friend felt sure the porter was wrong, and tried to assure his friends that there was plenty of time and no need to hurry," but the railway porter was obdurate and implored the party to run for their lives, himself setting a brilliant example. Seeing the porter sprinting hard, the ladies took fright and followed, and instantly .the whole party were running as if the express were at their heels. And so it was The last of the party had just rolled over iuto a ditch at the end of the cutting when the express thundered past. The escape was so narrow (not one second of time) that the ladies fainted, and for, perhaps, the first time in his life, the Company Promoter uttered a prayer of thanksgiving, lie had lived a somewhat reck- less life, and as he afterwards explained to me, "It was only a second between time and eternity, and- But lie did not finish the sentence; lie was evidently thinking of Lis previous life. "But," I asked, "how was it that only the porter's watch was correct ? I thought your watch was a very costly one." o Yes, so it was, 1 paid £ 80 for it. Btit I offered it to the railway porter in exchange for Iiis-a very ordinary looking silver watch—but would you believe it, he simply laughed at me, and exclaimed, Nae, nae, Sir Mine's a Benson I dinna want ony o' yer rubbish!" "And," added my friend, "I can now say with the porter, "Mine's a Benson, direct from their Steam Factory on Ludgate Ilill."
