NARBERTH V. TENBY.
NARBERTH V. TENBY. Representatives drawn from the above Clubs on Monday last—Bank-holiday—faced each other at Tenby, and the match, which was the return, came to a close at 6 o'clock, leaving Narberth the victors by 91 runs on the first innings. For this, being the principal contributors, Messrs G. H. Logan, L. P. Jones, W. Harries and M. S. David, carry off the praise, whilst in the bowling department Jones, Rowland and R. L. Thomas did all the work, the former distinguishing himself by taking as many as 5 wickets at a cost of 3 runs only. The visitors' also in fielding showed to splendid advantage, for they missed no catches and moved in true machine- like-form, thus giving the bowlers plenty of support. Soon after a start had been made, a sharp shower drove all to the pavilion for temporary shelter and upon the resumption of play, a strong wind blew across the ground which made bowling from one end exceedingly irksome. Tenby, in their first venture, being 91 runs to the rear had to follow on, and, on this occasion gave a very fair exhibition of steady batting, for they amassed a total of 91 for the loss of 4 wickets. The ground having dried up after the morning's rain gave them much support, And we feel somewhat sorry time would not permit the innings being finished in order that we might see what it would realise. The Tenby ground having been much enlarged of late is in first rate order and reflects the highest credit upon Berkeley, the professional and ground man. Indeed, we must travel far outside the County to meet with anything superior or even to equal it'and sorry we are that a greater number of spectators cannot be drawn to witness the matches, which would help consider- ably to popularize the game, which at present is taken but little interest in.

IMPORTANT AND USEFUL INFORMATION.—If you ask the best physicians in any country what is the best remedy for indigestion, nervous disorders, and a host of ailments resulting from them, as bilious- ness, sick headaches, heartburn, swelling of the stomach after meals, drowsiness, shooting pains about the heart, depression of spirits, bronchitis, asthma, spitting of blood, &c. ? they will imme- diately reply-" Quinine is the best." Again en- quire "What other substance is a remedy for in- digestion, liver complaints, fevers, &c. ?" and they will answer — Dandelion." If you then ask, What are the most reliable to purify the blood, and remove the ill effects of impure blood?" and they will tell you that Sarsaparilla and Quinine are best adapted for that purpose. If you then desire to know what will strengthen the appetite for food, the answer will generally be—Gentian and Quinine. The refore, when all these medicinal ingredients are united with others which possess like properties as remedial agents, forming a combination of all the most renowned medicinal plants of this and other countries, and known as Quinine Bitters, we have such a combination of powerful curative agents, that no weakness, debility, or any symp- toms of the above named diseases are able to with- stand its healing effects. And yet it is so free from any injurious substance that even the weakest infants, the feeblest females and most helpless in- valid may use it with safety, and the working man need not abstain from his labour whilst using this wondrous curative mixture, Gwilym Evans' Quinine Bitters. At this season of the year no one should be without it. A course taken now will be invaluable in giving tone to the system, new life to the blood, and bracing the nerves. Avoid imitations.

PRESENTATION TO POLICE-SERGEANT…
PRESENTATION TO POLICE-SERGEANT CARR. On Wednesday week a meeting of the subscribers to the Carr Testimonial Fund was held at the Town Hall, a goodly number of influential gentlemen of the town, being present. In the absence of the Mayor, Mr Alderman James Rogers was unani- mously elected to preside. The Chairman opened the proceedings in his usual courteous and felicitous manner, and proceeded to describe the origin of the cause of their being present, with which the majority of our readers are already acquainted, and then called on Mr C. Farley, bon. sec. and treasurer to read over the list of names of the subscribers. Mr Farley (to whom by-the-bye muchcredit is due in this matter) then read over the list of names, which were about a hundred in number, comprising persons of all classes of the community. The Chairman said in the absence of the Mayor who was unavoidably away on business, it gave him much pleasure to preside upon such an aus- .1 picious occasion. Mr Carr had been connected with the police force of the town for a considerable number of years, and for several years had been their head constable, during which lengthened period he had performed the important duties de- volving upon him not only in a faithful and efficient manner, but also in such a courteous and genial way as was undoubtedly conducive to the peace of the borough. (Hear hear.) He had a very high opinion of Mr Carr, and so far as he (the chairman) was enabled to judge, he believed he was perfectly justified in saying that Mr Carr, in his official capacity, had given satisfaction to the Magistrates, to the Corporation, and to the public generally, for the impartiallity and the discretion he had shown in fulfilling duties that were always onerous, and frequently of a disagreeable nature. They were of course aware that Mr Carr had now been trans- ferred to the service of the County Police, and he believed he was only endorsing the sentiments of a large number of the inhabitants of Ten by, in wishing Mr Carr every success in his new sphere of action. (Applause.) He would not detain them with any further remarks, but had much pleasure in asking Mr Farley to present Mr Carr with the timepiece and the purse of gold that had been subscribed for him. Mr Farley, in a few brief and appropriate remarks then formally presented the clock and purse to Mr Carr amidst much applause. The timepiece is set in a massive and handsome marble frame, after the Corinthian style of architecture, the design being unique and beautiful, and on the entablature is en- graven the following inscription:—"This timepiece, together with a purse of money, was presented by the inhabitants of Tenby to Sergeant Carr, upon his removal to Pembroke, 1889." Mr Carr said his first duty was to thank them most sincerely for the honour they had conferred upon him his feelings were almost indescribable and were better perhaps imagined than described. He felt wholly unworthy of the interest that had been manifested and the great kindness that had been shown' him by the gentlemen of Tenby, as evinced by the beautiful timepiece and the purse of money, that they had so graciously presented to him. He had always endeavoured to do his duty, and could only thank them most humbly and heartily for the appreciation they had been pleased to express in the tangible form he had already alluded to. (Applause.) Mi F. E. Wade thought that their thanks were due to Mr Farley, who had considerately taken the initiative in this matter which he was pleased to know had culminated so satisfactorily and success- fully, and he would therefore propose a vote of thanks to Mr Farley for his excellent services. This was seconded by Mr T. W. Thomas, and carried nem con. Mr Farley in responding, thanked the meeting for the honour they had done him, and said that he had much pleasure in giving his assistance to the work spoken of, the more especially as he was of opinion that the manner in which Mr Carr had conducted the police arrangements of the town during so many years had been so satisfactory, that upon his removal he was fully deserving of their consideration and sympathy. (Applause.) On the proposal of Mr F. Tringham, seconded by Mr J. Evans, (saddler), an unanimous and hearty vote of thanks was accorded to the worthy and respected chairman. Alderman Rogers having briefly and suitably responded, the interesting proceedings terminated.
SOUTH AMERICAN MISSIONs.On Thursday even- ing, the 1st August, a lecture was delivered in the Public Hall by Mr Thomas Farmer, Metropolitan Lecturer, on the South American Missionary So- ciety. There was a large attendance, the Rector of Tenby being in the chair. The lecture was illus- trated by means of a series of views of coast and inland scenery, mission stations, and groups of natives of South America. The wretched condition of some of these native tribes, especially in Tierra del Fuego, attracted the attention of the late Captain Allen Gardiner, who founded the mission known by his name, and which has since developed into the South America Missionary Society. Captain Gardiner and all engaged with him lost their lives in endeavouring to bring Christianity to these people, who the late Mr Charles Darwin declared, after seeing them and examining their peculiarities whilst on board the Beagle, during a voyage along the shores of Tierra del Fuego, that the task of improving them would be utterly hope- less that they were no better than mere animals and that in fact, while animals might be taught something, the natives of this region could be taught nothing." Yet a large number of this race, by means of this Society, had been brought under the influence of the Gospel, and were in a state of civilization, having schools and native teachers. Mr Darwin lived long enough to see the effects of the work of the Mission, and was one of its chief supporters. The story of the Mission, as told by Mr Farmer, was most instructive and entertaining, and at its close a collection was made which realized E3 14s., a donation of 10s. being sent by Dr. Cust G wynne, who was unable tc be present. A hearty vote of thanks to the Lecturer and Chairman closed the proceedings. Miss Townsend, of Fern House, is the local secretary. The body of a young woman was found on Saturday afternoon in a mutilated state on the Great Western main line at Hay Mill, between Taplow and Slough. The remains have since been identified as those of Miss Nelly Biggs, eldest daughtey of Mr Biggs, jeweller, of Maidenhead. The deceased left her home between ten and eleven that morning, and until the fatal accident was made known had not been heard of.
.1QUICK ROUTE TO AMERICA.
.1 QUICK ROUTE TO AMERICA. FROM MILFORD HAVEN IN FOUR DAYS. I. The New York Times announcen that Mr Austin Corbin has purchased a large tract of land at Montauk Point, Long Island, and that the Rapid Transit Steamship Company, which he represents, will proceed immediately to the construction of eight steamships to ply between Fort Pond Bay and Milford Haven, in Wales. This announcement will renew the interest which the public has long felt in the project of establishing an American short line between Great Britain and the United States. The sea voyage will be reduced perhaps 48 hours., and if Mr Corbin's vessels, which are to cost, it is said, not less than 1,250,000 dollars each, and are to be the fastest and most elegant on the Atlantic, shall even rival in speed those of the Cunard, Inman, and White Star lines, the passage from land to land ought to be made in a little over four days. This will be reducing the duration of the sea voyage between the continents of Europe and America to a point not thought of ten years ago.
THE QUEEN A PREBENDARY OF…
THE QUEEN A PREBENDARY OF ST. DAVID'S. The Bishop of Chester has made the interesting announcement that in our smallest city-St. David's—her Majesty is a prebend of the cathedral, but whether during her visit she will be persuaded to visit and occupy her prebendal stall is not stated. It may not be known that Von Moltke and several German notables draw large incomes from a Prussian cathedral chapter, the revenues of which are diverted to laymen for whom the State desires to provide high official recognition and reward. The prebendal stall of Finsbury-the richest in St. Paul's Cathedral-had at one time an income of £ 40,000 per annum, but now it goes to the common fund of the Ecclesiastical Com- missioners. The holder of the one endowed stall in St. Paul's serves as religious inspector. The other prebendaries derive no income by reason of their office.
JMARRIAGE OF MAJOR H. W. GRIFFITHS,…
J MARRIAGE OF MAJOR H. W. GRIFFITHS, FORMERLY OF PANTGWYN. The marriage of the above-named gentleman, major in the 23rd Royal Welsh Fuseliers, and brother of Mr. Griffith, formerly of Pantgwyn, near Cardigan, with Miss Victoria Sayer, eldest daughter of Mrs. Chaine, of Kensington Palace, and the late Captain Frederic Sayer, of the 23rd Royal Welsh Fusiliers, M'as celebrated last week, with a full choral service. The officiating clergy were the Hon. and Rev. E. Canglyn, M.A., vicar of the parish, and son-in-law of the Duke of Argyll, assisted by the Rev. Mr. Griffiths, brother of the bridegroom. Colonel Chaine, stepfather of the bride conducted her to the altar, and in due time gave her away, the gallant bridegroom being attended by a brother officer-Captain Firman, of the 23rd Royal Welsh Fusiliers. The charming bride was handsomely draped in rich cream satin, trimmed with front of gold and sequins of mother-of-pearl, and chatelaine of orange blossoms on one side of the skirt. The train was of the same satin, with ruche of tulle at bottom. Her tulle veil covered sprays of orange blossoms, and she wore as her sole orna- ment a magnificent diamond and sapphire crescent -a wedding present from the officers of the 23rd Royal Welsh Fusiliers, which was much appreciated. The bridal bouquet was quite a masterpiece of floral art, composed of white lilies, roses, and rare exotics, Four handsome bridesmaids awaited the arrival of the bride at the entrance to the sacred edifice. They were Miss Ethel Sayer (cousin of the bride), Miss Lily Lambart, Miss Astley, and Miss Sands, who wore effective dresses of white embroidered cashmere, and pink watered-silk front and petticoat, most tastefully arranged with waistband of the same material. Their fancy straw hats were orna- mented with pink ribbons and poppies to match. The bridegroom's gift to the bridesmaids was a gold bangle each, with the initials" V. H." in pearls, and they carried neat bouquets of pink carnations and white roses in foliage, bound with pink streamer. After the ceremony a dejeuner and reception were given at the residence of the bride's mother, Mrs Chaine, at Kensington Palace, which was largely attended, amongst those present being the Duchess of Manchester, the Countess of Ellesmere, Lady Mabel Egerton, Baroness de Reuter, the Honorable Lady Robinson, Lady Seymour, Colonel and Mrs. Manvers Moorsom, Lord Athlumney, Lady Fanny Fitzwygram, Major French, Canon Phipps. Colonel and Mrs Fitzgeorge, and Professor and Mrs Mar- shall. The entrance to the church was lined by sergeant-majors and sergeants of the 23rd Royal Welsh Fusiliers, who had come up to represent the detachment now stationed at Wrexham specially for the occasion. After the ceremony the newly- married couple left for the English lakes, where the honeymoon will be spent. The numerous and hand some presents included a gold bangle brooch, set in diamonds, from their Royal Highnesses the Prince and Princess of Wales; diamond and moonstone brooch, the Duchess of Manchester; diamond and sapphire brooch, Mr and Mrs de Rothschild; cheque for £500, Mr Dunville diamond and moon- stone brooch, Lady Hesketh; diamond tiara, Colonel Chaine; silver candlesticks, the Marquess of Lome; diamond crescent, Mr and Mrs Barton diamond brooch, Lord Athlumney; large silver bowl. Miss Griffiths and sapphire and ruby ring, Master Chaine.
--"-----------THE NAVAL REVIEW.
THE NAVAL REVIEW. The inspection of the British fleet at Spithead, which had to be deferred on Saturday in conse- quence of inclement weather, took place on Monday. There was a strong wind, but, on the whole, the day was fine. His Majesty the German Emperor, who early in the day, at the Queen's desire, had been photographed in his uniform as admiral in the British navy, embarked on the Victoria and Albert about half-past three. The passage through the lines occupied about an hour, and on its conclusion the chief officers of the fleet, who had assembled on board the Howe went on board the Royal yacht at the Emperor's request, and were introduced to his Majesty. The Emperor afterwards congratulated the Prince of Wales and Admiral Sir. J. Commerell on the magnificent naval display he had witnessed. The Royal party then returned to Cowes, and in the evening the Emperor dined with the Queen and a distinguished company. Her Majesty had pre- viously inspected the fleet, leaving Cowes for that purpose at 5.30 p.m.
TENBY COTTAGE HOSPITAL. -Number of beds, 7 patients discharged during past week, 0 patients admitted during past week. 1 total number in hospital, 2.-August 8, 1889.
Mr Herbert Ward, lluondam member of the Stanley expedition, hao lately returned to England, bringing many relics of the cannibal tribes of the Upper Congo, and, for the better instruction of the public, he has loaned his collection to Mr Van der Weyde, who has arranged a miniature museum at his premises in Regent-street. From the inspection of these curiosities I, for one, re- turned a sadder, if not a wiser, man. There iä, there literally is, nothing new under the sun, not even in the interior of the Dark Continent. Not that the objects I inspected were not interesting, queer, grotesque, but that the hnndiwork of these ignorant, primitive, uncivilised people is so much better, more varied, and ingenious than one would expect. Wa'al, I guess human wants, as will as human nature, are pretty much the same all the world over, and Necessity is the mother of Inven- tion, even in Central Africa. As usual with savage nations, their best work is lavished upon weapons of war, the varied and eccentric shapes of which would take a column to describe. And these, spears, knives, swords, &c., are not only very" killing." but quite artistically decorated, as are also the carved paddles. There is not only good metal work, but pottery, which is well moulded and pleasant to look upon. A good deal of it, and of the decorated metal, would in no- wise disgrace the "Arts and Crafts;" but the fetishes take one back again. Most of them are rude in design, and primitive in construction; some are quite out of proportion, others not unlike Japanese figures. One small image, whose sole garb consists of a peaked spotted cap and a Zouave jacket en suite, struck me particularly funny. Then there are feather caps; cloth beaten out from the bark of a tree, in requisite length for a gentleman's suit complete! copper wristlets and anklets, to pre- vent the ladies of the family from straying very neatly-made basket work and grass cloth; musical instruments like rude Jew's harps, and various kinds of rattles. The approach of Goodwood warns us that the season is all but over, and great will he the flitting either northwards or to the Continent a week or so hence. The number of people who do Goodwood from town nowadays would greatly astonish one of the old-fashioned race goers, though it is scarcely surprising, seeing the comfort and despatch with which you are conveyed thither by the London, Brighton, and South Coast Railway Company, with plenty of time to seek out acquaintances and friends ere the jockeys are weighed out for the first race. Should the showers we are now experiencing continue, the London, Brighten, and South Coast Company will be spared a little of the trouble they have generously undertaken the past few years in watering the road from the station to the course. One of the greatest literary works of the day will appear early next week. It is Father Strassmaier's translation and publication of the facsimiles of 1134 cuneiform inscriptions dating from the reign of Nabonidus, the last of the native kings of Baby- lon, covering the period from B c. 555 to B c. 358, when Cyrus captured the city. As the vast majority of these documents are of a purely domestic character, their interest, as throwing light upon the condition of Assyria, is invaluable. Is not there a sad little song that says, "There are no birds in last year's nest?" Well, there is a bird come back to London who perked and preened himself with the best of them last summer, but will find, I fear me, that his place has been filled by others. Have we not le brav' General and the Shah? Has not Mistress Alice Cornwell daz- zled our eyes with her riches? Are not we all running over with excitement about the Royal wedding? The Nitrate King is likely to find his warmest welcome, not at his inn, but from certain West-End tradesmen who are counting on him to rid them of some costly wares which have proved, so far, unsaleable. Poor Colonel! he is likely to have a warm time of it; but perhaps some of his persecutors will find that there are no birds in last year's nest." Very sudden and very sad was the death of poor Ronald Leveson-Gower. In apparently perfect health on Saturday morning and dead before the next day's noon! The event was made more melancholy by the fact that he was to haye been married almost immediately to Miss Violet Guthrie, a daughter of the late Mr James Alex- ender Guthrie, of Craigie, Forfarshire. Diptheria, complicated by an affection of the heart, was the cause of dt-ath. Mr Leveson-Gower, who was a grandson on the mother's side, of the first Lord Leigh, was only 26 years of age. The greatest sympathy will be felt for the bride-elect under the tragic circumstances of her bereavemeat. A new so-called military band, consisting of forty-two picked members, gave an initiatory per- formance at Prince's Hall on Monday afternoon, when the wise among the audience chose the lowest seats, and even then felt that the distance was scarcely sufficient to permit them to enjoy the ex- cellent performance of the smartly dressed band conducted by Mr John Hill. The programme in- cluded Sullivan's incidental music to Henry VIII., chosen, no doubt, partly as a compliment to Sir Arthur, who is president of the band. This was one of the most enjoyable items, though all were very warmly received. It is thought that the new band will be much in request next season, and re- hearsals will be kept up with a frequency and regularity which should give the members a decided pull over some others. Full late though it is, they will yet give a taste of their quality this season, for Mr Vert has already secured them two engage- ments for next week. W.
