Spring Signs.—With the advent of May the lighting of the public thoroughfares of the town ceases, and the lanterns have been removed from the standards and stored. Sewerage Scheme.—The tapping of a small spring in connection with the sewerage works has had a curious result. Though not of very great volume, its persistency has com- pletely filled the manhole at the end of the French Walk, with the result that it has over- flowed, and shallow trenches have had to be cut in the surface of the road in order to carry off the water. This is due to the fact that the manhole, which is situate at the 'foot of a very steep gradient has not yet been connected with the outfall, and the water can consequently find no other means of egress. Tabernacle.—The yearly meetings at this place of worship will be held on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday next, when Proff T Rees, M.A„ Bala-Bangor, and Rev D R Davies, Rhydyceisiaid, are expected to offici- ate. Order of services :—Saturday, 6.30 p.m.; Sunday, 10 a.m., and 2, and 6 p.m. Monday, 6.30 p.m. Scleddy.—Particulars of a preliminary in- vestigation into charges of theft alleged to have been perpetrated at the Gate House Inn, Scleddy, will be found reported in another column. New^Petty Sessional Division.- Elsewhere in this issue will be found reference to the arrangements which are being made with the object of giving effect to the decision of Quarter Sessions to create a new petty session- al division with headquarters at Fishguard. Abergwaun's Adversaries,—The following is the list of choirs entered for the National Eisteddfod of Wales at the Albert Hall, Lon- don, in the second choral competition Skewen Music Lovers, Fishguard Bay Choral Union, Grangetown United Choral Society, Cefn Mawr Choral Society, The Southport Choir, Pentre and Treorchy United Choral Society, Portsmouth Excelsior Temperance Choral Society, Coleford Philharmonic Society, Briton Ferry Choral Society, Willes- den District Choir, Nantlle Vale United Choir, Mr A G Gibb's Choir (London). Illness.—We regret to announce the pro- longation of the severe illness of Mrs Lydia Griffiths, Goodwick House, who has been seriously ill for some time past. Mrs Griffiths, who is in her 93rd year, is well-known and highly respected by all, and the sincere wish of her many friends is that she will soon recover. Concert.—A grand concert will be held under the auspices of the Fishguard Bay Choral Society in Hermon Chapel on Friday the 28th inst, the object being to raise funds towards the Society's expenses to London to compete at the Welsh National Eisteddfod. The society, and its talented conductor (Mr E Anthony) are deserved of encouragement and support, and we trust that Hermon Chapel will be packed on the occasion of the concert. Social.—A social in aid of the piano and library fund of the Council School will be held in the Temperance Hall 011 Friday eve- ning, commencing at 8 o'clock. A pro- gramme of dance music will be provided, as will also games for those unacquainted with the terpsichorean art, and refreshments for all. P.R.G.A.—The local Territorials turned out an Wednesday evening for the first time in marching-out uniforms, presenting a re- markably spick-and-span appearance. The instruction drill which was to have taken place at South Hook Fort, Milford, on Satur- day last, was subsequently cancelled. Presentation. As announced in a recent issue, it has been unanimously decided by the members of the Tabernacle Church to present their esteemed pastor Rev. W Morlais Davies—with a testimonial as a token of their appreciation of his faithful labours in their midst for the lengthy period of thirty years. Mr Davies has always preached the Word of God in its purity and true light, and has, by his exemplary character, done all in his power to advance his fellow-men. Being a very able musician, he has rendered much valuable assistance in developing the musical talent of this locality, and for several years was a successful conductor of the Fishguard Choral Society. Mr Davies' many good qualities as a minister of the Gospel, as well as his excellent public service in various ways, deserve recognition, and we very heartily commend the movement to the notice of our readers. A committee has been formed with the object of carrying the project through successfully. The chairman is Mr T Perkins, Hendrewen, while the secretarial duties are in the hands of Mr J G Martin, jeweller, the treasurer being Mr Francis A Davies, Paris House. Condolence.— General sympathy will be extended to Mr Richards, of the Royal Oak in the bereavement which he has sustained by the death-reported in the Newport col- umn- of his sister-in-law. Furze Fire.—At about nine o'clock last (Tuesday) night a gorse fire broke out on Pen- slade' We have not yet had the opportunity of examining the damage but, judging by the size and volume of the blaze, it must be fairly considerable, and we trust that on this occasion somebody will be brought to book. It is useless placing resolutions to prosecute upon the Council minute-book unless they be enforced Road Metal.—The working of road metal has been recommenced in the Council's quarry upon Penslade, and hand breaking has been resorted to as a consequence of the Council's commendable offer to pay the contractor six- pence extra per yard provided this be done, the object being to provide employment for local labour. Cantata.—On the first Thursday in July the scholars at the Council School will give a performance of the cantata entitled the Villiage Children." Fuller particulars will be given later. Personal.— The numerous friends of Mr Roderick Harries will learn with pleasure that he returned to Fishguard on Tues- day to take up duties as manager of the grocery department at the Supply Stores for Mr Francis. Tredavid -On Friday evening a well atten- ded concert was given at this institution, an excellent programme being submitted and enthusiastically applauded by the auditory. Anglers Note!—A dead horse is at present lying in one of the best trout ponds in the Gwaun at Lower Town, and, in view of the great extent to which trout-fishing is now being indulged in, it behoves the local anglers to take immediate action, and see what measures can be devised for securing the removal of the car- case. Great Gardening Feat.—One of the numer- ous amateur gardeners so often met with in High-street was rather disconcerted with the results of his experiments this week. This particular gentleman, having heard that soot was good for destroying snails, etc., applied this remedy rather plentifully to his budding cress etc. The soot and snads are still there but the cress is gone A Coast-Guard J.P.—Under this heading, 'Home Chat,' for the current week publishes a portrait article concerning Lieut John Williams, J.P., who is a son of a retired coast- guard who formerly resided at Windy Hall.
