WESLEYAN DAY SCHOOL ANNUAL…
WESLEYAN DAY SCHOOL ANNUAL l'r CONCERT. J The fourth annual concert in connection with this school came off at the Royal Assembly Rooms on Thursday last, and proved the most successful of this very popular series. The hall was well filled with a most respectable audience, who marked their appreciation of the capital programme by frequent and hearty applause, and by remaining to the close. Alderman W. H. Richards, J.P., presided with his usual affability and efficiency. The Rev G. H. Camburn, at the commencement. said Mr Alderman Richards needed no introduction to a Tenby audience, and he had very much pleasure, in the name of all connected with their day school, in asking him to take the chair, and would ask them to give him a hearty welcome. At the close of the first part of the programme, Alderman Richards (who was greeted with hearty applause), said he found marked in pencil on his programme something that was not on theirs, namely, a speech from the chairman. He was not prepared for this, and was rather taken aback in speaking impromptu. On this occasion he could not help congratulating the Rev Mr Camburn, Mr Gower, and all the friends of the day school, on the success of the entertainment. What they had already heard of the proceedings he was sure had given much pleasure to all. Everyone interested in the cause of education (as everyone in Tenby is) must be gratified to observe the manner in which the children has been taught to sing and recite in the way these children had been. It was a great treat to him to come, and he thanked those gentle- men who had given him the opportunity of being there. He was glad to see so many present and was sure in coming within those walls on such a warm evening, they must have expected a good programme and they would agree with him that so far it was good, and that they had enjoyed it very much. (Applause). As he said before, he was not prepared to make a speech and he hoped they would bear with his natural timidity—(laughter)— on this occasion and feel for him, as they could imagine how awkward it was for a man to find himself on a platform in front of so many ladies. (Cheers). Mr Richards jocularly concluded by hoping that before very long all the ladies would have votes. (Applause and laughter). The Rev G. H. Camburn said they should pro- pose no vote of thanks in the ordinary way. At the same time they could not allow the interval to pass without acknowledging the kindness of Mr Alderman Richards in coming to this the annual concert of the day school. On behalf of Mr Gower and all connected with the school, the children and managers, he tendered Mr Richards their very sincere thanks. He was sure that audience felt obliged to him, and he would ask all present to testify their appreciation of his presence by ac- clamation. This request having been very warmly acceded to, the rev. gentleman called on the boys of the school for three cheers, to which they res- ponded with much spirit, The chairman in responding said he was glad they had still further proof that the children had -excellent lungs. At the conclusion of the programme the National Anthem was sung, and afterwards many and warm were the encomiums on the excellent programme provided, and the care and efficiency of Mr Gower's training. We should like to award a word cf praise to some of the children who displayed exceptional talent, those who particularly distinguished them- selves in reciting being Mildred Durnford (whose correct pronunciation and diction was remarkable in one so young), Edith Davies, Sarah Evans, Ernest Durnford, Edgar Parrott, and G. Thomas the latter two were extremely funny in the dia- logue, "Ignorance is Bliss." Special mention must also be made of the descriptive "songs of all nations"—France being represented by Alice Good- ridge, Denmark by Sarah Beynon, Switzerland by Polly Thomas, whilst Maud Morris and Sarah Evans were an American Indian and a Chinaman respectively but quite the gem of the evening was the conclusion of the "infants' action songs and musical drill," when two mites, Gladys Thomas and Arthur Nicholls, sang the Old English duet, "Where are you going to my Pretty Maid? the little maid at the conclusion treating her quondam lover with splendidly simulated contempt, eliciting a tremendous encore. A song, "The Black Dolly," was sung in capital voice by little Muriel Davies, and was followed by a dialogue in which the same dolly appeared. Here the young lady calls in the aid of the surgeon, John Smith, to fasten to the doll a leg which, during the song, had fallen off. In a dia- logue, "A Geography Lesson," the parts were well sustained by Sarah Evans, Lottie Lloyd, Lily Rees, Martha Jane Griffiths, Bessie Nicholls, and Alice Davies. Of the adults taking part Mi§s Husband's solo was warmly applauded, as also was that given by Miss Howells, a former and apparently popular teacher of the school. Mr Wade, who received an old favourite reception, occasioned much merriment in localizing the place and characters in one song, and his singing, as usual, elicited very warm ap- planse. Mr Stanley Thomas in the musical drill" displayed much skill in manipulating his useful, but rather unwarlike, weapon, while the scholars engaged with him, by their dexterous movements with the broom handles, and the correct time ob- served, testified that much time and care must have been taken ere such proficiency could have been obtained. As an accompanist Miss Nellie Evans was quite at home, and she contributed much to the success of the concert.

PATERFAMILIASES V. ST. ANDREW'S…
PATERFAMILIASES V. ST. ANDREW'S SCHOOL. The Paters, elated with the success of their first match, and fondly deluding themselves with the idea that a second victory would be a very simple affair, met the boys for a return match last Thurs- day on the Club Ground, kindly lent them for the occasion. Having won the toss the Paters, in a very patronising, jaunty sort of way, allowed the boys to go in first. When, however, Messrs. Old- field and F. Smyth appeared at the wicket, the jaunty air gave way to anxious, uneasy look, and their fingers tingled at the very thought of the hard hits in store for them fortunately the latter was soon got rid of, but Mr Oldfield maintained his repute as a hard hitter-his 36 being composed almost entirely of threes and fours. Mr Rowe also ran up his 19 by a few striking hits, whilst Wheatley played capital cricket for 12. The fielding on the part of the Paters was hardly Al, some preferring the paasive to the active mood. Two very flagrant cases of the passive style of fielding took place, one Pater being suddenly seized with cramp as the ball passed some hundred yards over his head, another completed a somersault (from fright probably) as the ball whizzed over his head, and so each saved himself a long run. Messrs. Span and Jenkins bowled well in the first innings. Their batting does not deserve much notice, as, with one exception, the largest score was made by a useful friend in need, viz., etceteras. In the second innings of the School Hawksley was beginning to give some trouble, when by way of a change the Patera each bowled two overs, but with no great success, some of the bowling being indifferent and some decidedly bad one ambitious Pater excelled in the latter style, for in one over (it was underhand, by the way) he bowled no less than three consecutive wides, the last of them nearly hitting Point, who was fully six yards wide of the wicket, on the head. The match was thoroughly enjoyed by all, and at its conclusion the boys gave the Paters three rattling good cheers, and no doubt eondidered themselves much better men than their fathers. ST.

FISH REPORT. Very fair supply of fish landed this week from the trawling boats, consisting of soles, turbot, brill, gurnet, whiting, hake, bream, ling, conger, cod, ray, &c. One Brixham boat landed nearly a ton of conger, besides cod, ling, and other fish, caught by hook at the Smalls, being a very heavy catch for the short time they were fishing. The mackerel season having commenced the boats are engaged daily line fishing, the takes being rather light but improving. The bass fishing having turned out so badly the boats are gone mackerel fishing which is likely to pay them better. The lobster and crab industry still remains very quiet, very small takes being landed. All the trawling fleet are at sea. Wind W.N. w. rain; weather very unsettled—July 24, 1889.
Mr George Stone takes his first benefit at the Gaiety Theatre on Saturday next, when u Faust up to Date" will be played, with incidentals by some of the leading London artistes. I hear also that Mr Stone has arranged to visit America and Australia with the Gaiety Company, opening in December next at the Maddison Square.Theatre, New York. Faust up to Date," which has had such a successful run in London, will be the piece de resistance of the Gaiety Company, in which Mr Stone takes the part of "Valentine." 9 iI Mr Thomas Purnell, who has been in ill health for some months, has been staying for a short time in the neighbourhood of Haverfordwest, and his many friends in Tenby and elsewhere will be glad to know that he has greatly benefited thereby. It is some thirty years since he was last in Haverfordwest, and many of his old friends have not seen him during that time. During his stay his pen has not been idle, as readers of the pages of the vivacious Judy, to whom the signature -1 Q." is substantially as well as phonetically a cue, have not failed to observe. ♦ The programme of the fifth annual Cycling Race Meeting has been placed in my hands. It has been fixed for the 21st August, and will be held as formerly in the Football Field, Heywood Lane. The meeting is announced as strictly under National Cycle rules and A.A.A. laws, and con- sequently there is a guarantee that everything will be conducted in accordance with the stringent laws of those associations. Prizes to the value of X55 are offered, and in order to give visitors from other towns an opportunity of being present, special excursion trains from all stations this side of Port Talbot will be run on the morning of the race day. The head of the management is Mr George Ace, captain of the Tenby Cycle Club. # I hear that Messrs Redfarn and Rousbey have secured the provincial rights of the "Balloon," and will shortly take it on tour. Tenby will be included in the towns the man&gement intend visiting, although the attendance at "Dorothy" last week was rather disappointing, considering the expense attendant upon bringing such a large company into the place. I have not heard the exact amount of takings on the two nights, but I understand it was under £50. The company alto- gether numbered thirty-six, for whose convenience special carriages, as well as luggage vans, were provided by the London and North Western Railway Company. The powers that be have at last recognised the fact that more Justices of the Peace are needed in Pembroke. During the past few years many have been removed by death and none added to take their place. I now observe that three have been added in Pembroke, and one in Pembroke- Dock. Mr Robert George has served the public interest for many years, and has fairly earned the honour; the same may be said of Mr Jonas N. Trayler, the present mayor of the borough. Major Wynne represents the largest landed interest in the neighbourhood, and it seems a very fitting thing that he should have a seat on the Bench. Captain Troughton is not so well-known as the other gen- tlemen, but I have no doubt he will prove himself worthy of the honour. w m The marriage of Miss Beatrice Jones-Parry and Mr Wood will be solemnized at St. James1, Pad- dington, on the 27th. It is an interesting fact that this is the same church where Captain Jones- Parry and Miss Vaughan of Tyllwyd, were mar- ried. The date fixed is the same as that for the wedding of the Princess Louise and Lord Fife. After the ceremony, a reception will be held at 10, Gloucester Place, Hyde Park. The wedding takes; place in London because of the delicate health of Mrs Wood, the bridegroom's mother, for whom! the long journey into Wales would be too trying. The quantity of presents already received from Captain Jones-Parry's tenants have been most gratifying to the family. • » • Lord Dunraven's yacht Valkyrie, is at Southamp- ton this week, to get ready for her passage across the Atlantic to New York, and she will take her departure from the port of her birth instead of the' Clyde, as was reported. It is understood that her present master ( Fom Diaper, of Itchen Ferry) will sail her in the matches in America, and that a sailing master will be engaged to sail her out to New York and bring her home again. The Earl of Dunraven and Mr G. L. Watson, designer of Valkyrie, have both been at Southampton during the week, making preliminary arrangements for the departure of the yacht. Earl Dunraven has given orders for the Petronilla, the cutter he had built last year, to be fitted out. She will be raced in the regattas of the Royal Yacht Squadron, the Royal Southampton, and other clubs in the Solent and district, and also at the westward. 1 hear that the collector is experiencing some difficulty in obtaining subscriptions from visitors towards the Band, on the ground that they are supported entirely by the contributions of resi- dents, or from some fund at the disposal of the committee other than voluntary contributions. This is not the case. The committee look to visitors to help them to maintain the Band, which is engaged mainly for their enjoyment, and under- takes to receive, through their appointed collector, voluntary contributions towards this end. in order to avoid the inconvenience, and sometimes worse than inconvenience, caused by bandsmen thrusting collecting books at all times under their notice. With this explanation I hope there will be no difficulty in collecting the sum necessary to com- plete their engagement. TATTLER. ^mmm———————

ROYAL ASSEMBLY Rooms. -This week, Mr Julian Malvern and Miss Maud Malvern, artistes who have gained a well-earned reputation, supported by a powerful company, have performed nightly at the Assembly Rooms to the appreciation of numerous audiences. On Monday "Saved," or a Wife's Im- pulse, was put on the stage, and the representation was a complete success. On Tuesday a representa- tion was given of the thrilling and pathetic drama. "New Magdalen." Miss Maud Malvern as "Mercy Merrick played her part with consummate skill, and with a pathos which appealed warmly to the emotions of the auditory. "The Rev. Julian Grey was impersonated by Mr Julian Malvern, who infused a degree of realism into the part such as to give a vivid portrayal of an energetic, self- denying and sympathetic clergyman. The Com- pany are remaining for another week.

To the Editor of the Tenby Observer. SIR.-With your permission I will endeavour to correct some of the mistakes into which the Western mind has fallen respecting Theosophy; though as an old proverb says Error runs down an inclined plane, Truth laboriously climbs up hill." First then, I would state that Theosophy is not Buddhism, and that Fellows of the Theosophical Society are not Buddhists, though Colonel Olcott is such (to the best of my belief.) Many are the philosophies and religions of the world. Theosophy claims to be their parent source thus identifying itself with none in particular, and our motto is, There is no religion higher than Truth." s The earnest student of esoteric wisdom entirely loses sight of personalities, dogmatic beliefs, and special religions, while trying to bring his physical, mental, and spiritual conditions into harmony with nature and nature's god. Briefly, Buddhism is the religious system of ethies preached by the Lord Gautama, while Budhism (Theosophy) is the faculty of cognizing from the Sanskrit root "Budh to know.-Yours etc., Tenby, July 24, 1889.
