Haycrogs have been saved long ago, the aftermath is being grazed, and very shortly the meadows surrounding the town will be ready for and much benefited by a top dressing. Garden crops have mostly been taken out of the ground, and heaps of fertilizing matter should be collected and prepared for use during the winter and spring, consequently I very much hope to hear that the carters in the town will help me in my endeavour to get the black sand and mud removed from Tenby Harbour and made profitable use of. 1f ii- The Town Council offer sixpence for every load removed from the Harbour, and this subsidy should be valued by those who own land or gardens in the immediate neighbourhood of the town. With or without an admixture of patent or other manures this black sand is really a most valuable top dressing for grass land, for use in gardens, and especially on asparagus beds, though owners of the latter may also get a few loads of seaweed from the inside of the Old Pier, the removing of which would benefit their gardens and the owners of the houses over- looking the Pier. During the past winter I understand that over a hundred loads have been removed and paid for, and even this quantity has already much improved the condition of things on the quay- side. I estimate that another five hun- dred loads would result in the interior of our harbour appearing as clean and wholesome as the North Beach which it adjoins; and I am sure that every householder on the north side of Tenby will realize what a boon that would be to the town generally, and no effort should be spared to have this important improvement carried out during the coming winter. Of course, it should be remembered that this subsidy of six- pence per load for a valuable fertilizer will not be continued once the condi- tion of the harbour has been improved. The glorious weather of the past week or two has undoubtedly prolonged the season at Tenby in fact, last week there were practically no rooms to be let on the sea-front. The fishing com- petitions and the entertainments at the De Valence Gardens have during the season been well patronized, the only matter of regret being the lack of additional amusement for our visitors. An anecdote which has gone round Tenby during the last week or two is, I think worth publishing. A local boat- man's daughter was married some time ago to a smart young Tommy Atkins, who had to sail with his regiment for India a couple of months after the wedding. Tommy dutifully wrote to his bride from Madeira, but she grew tired of waiting for a further com- munication, and indulged in the extra- vagance of a cablegram which de- manded an immediate reply that things were well with him. < In due course the reply came, but its composition was somewhat strange, and the bride was by no means satis- fied that the message had been really sent by her husband, so proceeding to the post office she asked to be assured that the important message was really a bona fide one. The courteous officials did their best to remove all doubt and anxiety on that score from her mind, but she wound up with the exclama- tion Well, it's no use your talking, you can't kid me that this is my mail's writing, for I knows better # I hear it rumoured that the stewards of the Tenby Hunt Week for 1910 have already held a meeting for the purpose of arranging details, and as a result the amateur theatricals will be pro- duced under the management of Major Sellar, who will receive every possible support from Colbnel H. H. Goodeve, who for many years past has so suc- cessfully staged excellent amateur thea- tricals in connection with Tenby Hunt Week. The best thanks of the com- munity are due to Colonel Goodeve for his past services, and also for the con- siderable sum which it has yearly cost him out of his private purse and I can only hope that Major Sellar will be equally successful in keeping up the popularity of this important and fes- tive week for Tenby.
