A TENBY MAN IN TROUBLE. Pontypridd Police-court on Wednesday— befOreMr Ignatius Williams (stipendiary), Mr T. P. Jenkins, Mr Evan John, Mr T. Morgan, Mr P. Dunn, and Dr Davies—Henry Rogers, about 30 years of age, married, and described as a hobbler, belonging to Tenby, and residing occasionally at Porth, was charged with obtaining £ 2 by false pretence from Miss Lizzie War bur ton, residing at Kadyr Lodge, Radyr, near Cardiff. Prisoner's face c is familiar in the court, for about four years ago be was brought up in custody and charged with obtain- ing by false pretences food and lodgings and money from a landlady at Ynysybwl. He then represented himself as a "Royal Engineer," and stated to the duped hostess that he had been commissioned by the Government to survey all the land in that district.! He said that his "professional assistants would follow him in a week at least with the necessary apparatus for the work, also that they had a good deal of luggage, because they intended staying in the place for 12 months. The landlady thereupon suggested that she had better re-furnish the house to accommodate. the gentlemen." He unhesi- tatingly approved of the idea, and she immediately went down to Pontypridd and bought about £ 10 worth of household effects. Prisoner was for this offence sentenced to a term of imprisonment. About 18 months later the prisoner was again charged with a similar offence at the same police-court. He put up on this occasion at a respectable hotel, and re- presented himself as a colliery traffic manager to a landlady of a certain cottage in the Rhondda whom he promised to find for her husband better employ- ment than that of a collier. In recognition of this kindness he was supplied by the hostess with various luxuries in the shape of fresh eggs every morning* and elderberry wine, &c., when he returned "home" in the evening. Prosecutrix deposed that about three months ago she met the prisoner at the Cardiff Taff Vale Railway station. She had not seen him previously, but after some conversation both entered the same compartment. She was going home. On the way to Radyr he earnestly requested her to favour him with her address, and she eventually complied. On the following evening she received from him a letter, which she shortly after destroyed. About a fortnight or three weeks afterwards she casually met him again on the railway platform at Cardiff. She visited Cardiff daily, as she was employed there as a dressmaker at Mr Jones's drapery shop in Queen-street. He enquired of her if she was engaged. She replied she was not, whereupon he presented his addresses to her, asking her, Would you kindly allow me to keep company with you ? He told her subsequently that he had 965 in the bank at Porth, f50 of which, he said, had been left to him by his grandmother, and that his earnings were 35s. per week. He represented himself as a clerk at the offices of Messrs Insole and Sons, the Cymmer Colliery, the Cymmer, and that he had occupied the same post since he was 15 years of age. He then observed that whenever he got married his mother would furnish a house for him. On returning from Cardiff they parted at Radyr, she going home, and he proceeded by the same train to Porth. She saw him next at her parents' house at Radyr on Bank Holiday. He arrived in the locality about nine o'clock in the evening. He had a conversation with the mother that night respect- ing a proposal to marry her daughter. He subse- quently informed the prosecutrix that he had obtained parental consent to marry her. He slept that night at prosecutrix's parents' home, and remained there until the following Wednesday. He was regarded by the family as a "thorough gentleman." He then returned to Porth. On the ensuing Friday she received from him the following letter:- 145a, Pugh-street, Cymmer, Porth. Rhondda Valley, August 8th, 1889. My dear Liz,—Just a line to let you know that I arrived home quite safe on Wednesday morning, and very sorry, dear, to have to inform you I really cannot come down to-night, but I have very good news for you, and that is I am coming down to Cardiff offices next Monday, and going to be there all the week, because there is so many of them on their holidays, and there is a very heavy demand for coal just now. Trade is begmuing to resume its former attitude. Dear Lizzie, I should like to see you to-night, but it is really unavoidable, and I know you will forgive me. I was speaking to the manager just now about a house, and he is quite willing for me to have one, and he came back to the office and told all the clerks there. So you can guess I am well chaffed. Please write back, if possible, by return, or ask Charlotte to do so if you will be too tired. Give my love to your mother and Charlotte and all the family, and I must remain your true and affectionate lover, HARRY. Eleven "crosses," apparently representing kisses, followed. On the following Monday morning he was looking out for her at the Radyr station, and after waiting for some time they met each other, and thence went to Cardiff. She was going to her work. On the way he remarked, "I am removed from the Cymmer office to the Cardiff offices, and I am glad of it." In the evening they met again, and returned together to Radyr. He told her he had been at the offices all day, and lodged at her home that night. He showed her a receipt for a parlour suite which he said he had bought. He told her he had almost invariably experienced damp beds at Cardiff, and that was the reason why she requested him to accompany her home. With regard to the furniture he was very pleased, and said he had had a bargain. The receipt was for 120 10s, and it contained a stamp and a signature over it. He lived at prosecutrix's mother's house all that week, and she and her mother were under the impression that he went every morning to the "offices." At the end of that week he said he had had consent by the firm to take a fortnight's holiday. He asked her to kindly lend him some money. She replied that she could not, but borrowed 20s from her sister to give him. He wanted the loan he said, to enable him to go to the Cymmer Colliery Offices, Porth, to fetch his pay, and to see the manager about a house. He met her on the ensuing Moaday, and told her that he had failed to obtain the wages due to him, and that he had been reported to Messrs Insole and Sons, and consequently, he said, he had better go to Cardiff to see the firm about the matter. The banns for marriage were put up at Radyr Church on Friday, the 16th of August. She accompanied him to the clergyman's house, and they Were to have been married on Monday last. He was supplied with food and lodgings up to Saturday, the 24th of August. He had represented himself to her as a "single man." In consequence of what she and her sister had heard, both went to Porth on Wednesday last, and called at Messrs Insole's offices, but they could not obtain any information about him there. She had left her situation in order to get married to the prisoner. She said she was not presented with a wedding I ring. Prisoner stated to her that he would buy one in Tenby, his native place. He always liked to patronise tradesmen who were friends of his. Prisoner was remanded for a week. Bail was refused.

PAUPERS AS ARTISTS' MODELS.-The Eastbourne Board of Guardians on Saturday discussed an application from a lady artist who requested that she might be allowed the use of some of the Union inmates as "models" in her studio. Dr Jeffrey (chairman) strongly objected, as did the guardians, on the ground that it was not right to let artists have the loan of paupers for such purposes, whether nude or clothed. A few of the guardians favoured the proposal on condition that the sitting as "models" was voluntary on the part of the inmates. Others thought the Local Government Board would never sanction the patting of aged inmates to such uses by artists, many of whom had previously applied for a similar privilege. It was ultimately decided to support the chairman's objection against the artist's proposal. HOLLO WAY'S OINTMENT AND PILLS. -Atitumnal Remedies.—Towards the fall of the year countless causes are at work to lower the tone of the nervous sys,tem, which will be followed by ill-health unless proper means be employed to avert that evil. Holloway's far-famed preparations supply a faultless remedy for both internal and external complaints connected with changes of season. All affections of the skin, roughness, blotches, pimples, superficial and deeper-seated inflammations, ery- sipelas, rheumatic pains, and gouty pangs alike succumb to the exalted virtues of Holloway's Ointment and Pills; which will effect a happy revolution in the patient's condition, though the symptons of his disorder are legion, and have obstinately withstood the best efforts of science to subdue them. Said a little girl, coming in from the fields, "I saw a pansy, and I was going to pick it, but it was a butterfly, and it flied away."
CARDIFF HORSE SHOW. I At this show which took place on Wednesday week, Mr Lort Phillips, of Lawrenny Park, won the second prize offered for three-year-old hunters with "Burglar"; Mr Lort Philtips won the third prize for two-year old hunters, with "Macgregor Mr Jno. Worthington, of Glyn-y-mel, the first prize for hacks, (the property of residents in South Wales or Monmouthshire) with "Cardigan," which was very highly commended in the open slass; MrW. Francis, of Wedlock, the second prize for jumping with Kathleen"; and Mr James Evans, of Panty- gorphwys, Narberth, the first prize for yearling cart colt, gelding or filly. The first prizes for heavy weight hunters in the open class, and also for residents in South Wales or Monmouthshire, were won by Mr A. P. Saunders Davies. of Pentre, with Harvard." In the proceedings of the sccpnd day, the judges awarded the 2nd prize to Mr John Worthington's "Cetewayo," in the class for light weight hunters, the property of residents in South Wales, or Monmouthshire; the champion prize to Mr A. P. Saunders Davies's Harvard," as the best exhibit in the six classes for hunters; and the third prize in the local jumping competition to Mr W. Francis's "Kathleen." The hunters altogether were a grand lot. "Harvard," the winner of the heavy weightrearrying class, had already brought in Mr Arthur P. Saunders Davies many honours. He has taken championships at, Birmingham, Wellington (Salop), and at Bath, and is, without doubt, a grand horse. In the local class Mr Worthington's "Cardigan" was far too good a horse to compete with many of the home people. Having won at Cardiff last year, he again came off with the chief guerdon.

On Friday afternoon the third-class twin-screw cruiser Blanche, six guns, 1,580 tons, 3,000 horse power, was launched from the yard, in the presence of a large number of spectators, attracted by the beautiful weather.

THE BUTTER FACTORY MOVEMENT IN CARMARTHENSHIRE. On Friday a meeting of the committee appointed by the last meeting of the Carmarthenshire Farmers' Club to promote the movement for establishing a butter factory in Carmarthenshire was held at St Clears, when there were present Messrs J. Williams (Penlan) presiding, T. Evans (Treverty), W. J. Wilson (Llanelly), D. Howell Thomas (Derllys), and W. Buckley Roderick (Llanelly). It was decided to call a meeting of the farmers of the neighbour- hood at St Clears on the 20th inst., to which will be submitted the views of the committee and the measure of support which may be expected will be ascertained. In the meantime the landowners of the district will be invited to assist. Mr W. J, Wilson was appointed secretary of the committee. and Mr D. Howell Thomas treasurer. The basis of the proposed factory was discussed, and it was de- cided that it should be in the form of a limited liability company, with a capital of 9600 in 91 shares, to be called the St Clears Farmers' Butter f actory Company, Limited. It was determined that the site of the factory should be within St. Clear's.
THE FATAL ACCIDENT TO MRS. SILVAN EVANS. Full details are to hand of the shocking fatal .accident to Mrs Silvan Evans, wife of the Rev. Canon Silvan Evans, B.D., Rector of Llanwrin, and the renowned Welsh lexicographer. It appears that the sad occurrence took place on Friday even- ing last, and not as reported in the London papers. Mrs Evans had during the day been visiting Dolguog the residence of Mr Helby, and was returning about 7.30 when the horse became restless, and, in at- tempting to jump out, Mrs Evans fell on her head, and was unconscious till her death, which happened at the Lion Hotel about 11 o'clock on Saturday. Mr Helby was also in the carriage and was thrown out, but escaped with some slight bruises about the head. Mrs Bowen (Liverpool), a daughter-in-law, with her youngest son, who was also in the carriage, kept their seats in the back part. The horse tore away down Maengwyn-street, and eventually bolted into the Lion Hotel, falling down within the doorway, but miraculously escaped uninjured. An inquest was held at the Lion Hotel, and a verdict returned of "Accidental death." The body was conveyed in the evening to the rectory, the Marchioness of Londonderry's carriage bringing up the family.

A DOCTOR'S RUSE. Dr. Sydenham had a patient whom he had long prescribed for. At laAt Sydenham acknowledged that his skill was exhailatod-thit he could not pretend to advise him-any farther. "But," said u, "there is a Dr. Robinson, who lives at Inverness, who is much more skilled in complaints of this kind than I am. You had better consult him. I will provide you with a letter of introduction, and I hope you will return much better." The patient was a man ot fortune, and soon took the road but travelling was a very difficult under- !• taking then from what it is now, and a journey from London to Inverness was not atritliog ime; He arrived, however, at the place of destination; but noDr. Robinson was to be found, nor had any one of that name ever been in the town. This, of course« enraged the gentleman very much, and he took the road back to London, raging and vowing vengeance on the doctor. On hia arrival he vented all his rage on the latter, and abused him for sending him a journey of so many miles for nothing. When hia fury was a little abated, Well, now," said Sydenham, "after all, is your health any better,?!, "Better," said he "yes, sir, it is better. I am, sir, as well as ever I was in my life; but no thanks to you foe that." Ie Well," said Sydenham, "you have still reason to thank Dr. Robinson. I wanted to send you a journey with an object in view. I knew it would do you. good; in going you had Dr. Robinson in contemplation, and, in returning you were equally in thinking of scolding me."
THE VAGARIES OF STICKS AND UMBRELLAS. A chapter on the proper mode of carrying sticks and umbrellas would afford most persons material for profitable reflection. We have not the space for such a chapter, but shall merely notice, with regard to the matter, a few instructive, but easily forgotten, hints of daily experience. The point, whether of stick or umbrella, figures prominently in the small accidents of every thoroughfare. It is carried or suddenly jerked behind one under an arm, and often painfully near to the persons of passers-by. It is needlessly thrust in front by the arm of a rapid walker, or anon describes a circle, with some careless hand for the centre. It travels swiftly upstairs at railway stations, performing an ag- gressive zigzag movement among the crowd of passengers. It forms the centre of the spread umbrella suddenly opened in the teeth of a stormy wind, and in the face of wayfarers Its uncertain level threatens by turns a shin, a back, or a face, a child's mouth or eye, or the solid front of some portly citizen, "Beg pardon" readily follows if it strikes a mark, but a missing tooth is not so soon restored or a bruise reduced. In such matters no body of regulations can give security, but self- interest alone might teach the careless the duty of watching and guiding aright this apparently insig- nificant but seriously offensive point.-Lancet.
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, &e. ? 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. The unparalleled success of GWILYM EVANS' QUININE BLTTRUS has created a host of base imitations somewhat similar in appearance and in name, but possessing none of the virtues of this Great National Remedy.

Large numbers of Irish agriculturists have arrived in North Wales to assist the Welsh farmers in harvest operations, which are now being pushed forward. Farmers throughout Denbighshire and Merionethshire left the harvest unusually late to permit her Majesty the Queen to have the best possible impression of the principality. The fields all along the Royal route were ripe unto harvest, cereal crops are heavier this season than at any y period during the Queen's reign. Her Majesty ex- pressed much pleasure at the richness of the rural districts through which she passed, and the abun- dance of the harvest. The Financial Times reports the formation of the Carmarthenshire Dairy and Produce Company (Limited). Its objects are to earry on business as dairymen and farmers. There are not to be fewer than three nor more than seven directors. The first are H. L. Morgan, L. James, A. Griffiths, J. James, and D. M. Thomas. The qualification is;91M
CRUELTY TO ANIMALS. At Pembroke on Saturday week, before N. A. Roch, Esq., chairman, Col. H. Leach, Col. M. J. Saurin, A. J. Morison, and W. Dawkins, Esqrs., John Glas*, a sweep, residing at Pembroke, was summoned by Inspector Clarke, R.S.P.C.A., for cruelty to a dog at Throstle Mill, Stackpole Elidor, belonging to Mr W. Simon. The evidence of two farm servants, Thomas Matthews and Mark Hall, who slept on the premises, proved that the dog was kept chained up in an enclosed yard for protection, and about 4.25 on the morning of 1st August, they were awoke by the dog barking and yelling out in pain. They ran down into the stable undressed, and on looking through the window saw the accused inside the yard gate, beating the dog with a thick stick across the head. Knowing Glass well, witness Matthews called out "That's John Glass," when accused ran through the gate and down the road, and on witnesses going to the dog they found it dreadfully injured, and thought it dying from the brutal beating. Mr Simon and Inspector Clarke proved that the structure of the left eye was com- pletely destroyed, and the dog rendered useless as a watch dog. Mr Gilbertson, Solicitor, Pembroke, who defended, admitted that accused was out gathering mushrooms that morning, and called a man named Rowlands to prove he met accused carrying two baskets of mushrooms at quarter past four that morning. The Chairman said that the Bench were unanimous that the defence had failed, and considering it a most brutal act of cruelty, ordered accused to be imprisoned for one month with hard labour without the option of a fine, and further to pay 10s. costs of prosecution, or in de- fault to be further imprisoned for 7 days with hard labour.
