LOCAL SIFTINGS. 1. h.- Mr F. B. Mason, auctioneer, Tenby, will conduct an important sale of household furni- ture and other effects in the Public Hall, on Wednesday, September 21st. During the week Mr Claude Falkiner, the West of England billiard champion, is giving exhibition games in the Royal Gate Rouse Hotel billiard Room. The BELGRAVE HOTEL, Esplanade, Tenby, is now replete with every convenience and accom- modation for visitors. Tariff upon application to Manageress. A squadron ball in connection with the Pem- brokeshire Yeomanry was held in the Royal Gate House Assembly Rooms, Tenby, last Week' in The pleasure steamer Kate, of Bristol, after what can scarcely be regarded as a successful season, left Tenby for home last Thursday afternoon. m The Misses Gould, milliners, Cheltenham Houses, Tenby, have taken the premises known as the Pioneer Stores," in St. George Street, where after Michaelmas they will carry on their business. Last Thursday many hundreds of people from Cardiff, Barry, .The Mumbles, etc., were landed at Tenby by the Red and White Funnel Steamers, both weather and sea being ideal for such trips. The New Conservative Club at Milford Haven, of which Mr Griffiths, formerly in busi- ness in Trafalgar Road, Tenby, as a grocer, is the steward, has had a most successful first year of existence. The profits were most satis- factory, every department of the club, which has now a membership of 543, with Lord Kensington as president, paying handsomely. tz This year's retiring members of the Tenby Town Council are Messrs. Wilfred Rces, Charles Farley, George Thomas, and Richard H. Tuck. Mr and Mrs Vetter, who have occupied No. 10, Esplanade, for the season, will probably winter in Tenby. The extra train at 9.57 a.m. from Ten by to London and the motor service are both discon- tinued this week. »♦« Lady St. Davids returned to London on Monday to attend the funeral of Mr Holman Hunt, at St. Paul's Cathedral. The steamer Barry, belonging to the Red Funnel Line, arrived at Ten by from* Weston, Cardiff and The Mumbles on Monday after noon, and landed a considerable number of pas- sengers. During last week a number of directors of the Great Western Railway Company paid a visit to Fishguard, where, it is generally under- stood more important developments and enter- prises are in contemplation. The following appeared in a recent issue of the Loi\don Gazette:—"Gate House Hotel Ltd., Tenby.—Reg. Aug. 26, £ 1100 debs. part of JS5100 (increased from £ 2000) general charge. £ 1100 deb. E9000 mort. Oct. 31, 1909." At the request of the Llandudno Urban Dis- trict Council the Llandrindod Wells Council on Friday decided to petition that the Coronation shall be fixed at an early date in June next so that the least possible injury may be done to health resorts. Last week Lord Churchill, chairman of the Great Western Railway Company Mr Arm- strong, chief engineer; Mr Rendel, Mr John Rees and Mr Tricky (Swansea), arrived at Tenby in connection with a tour of inspection, and lunched at the Cohunj Hotel. The Ten by County School, which under the principalship of Mr J. W. B. Adams, M.A., has achieved many distinguished educational successes, and particularly during the present year, re-opened for the winter term to-day (Thursday). We understand that as a result of the agita- tion in the Ohsercer with regard to the unsatis- factory ventilating arrangements at the Tenby Post Office, a change for the better is likely to be introduced at no distant date, the necessary official sanction for such having been obtained. • — Among the 230 passengers arriving by the Lnsitania ;t, Fishguard on Monday was Mr I Hugh D. Mcintosh, the promoter of the Johnson-Burns light. Interviewed by a Press correspondent, he stated that he was here to promote a series of contests, and especially to find a white champion to tinht Johnson. Little Lulu Williams, the clever Tenby child, who has secured on eighteen weeks' tour as a comedienne and dancer with the Moss and Stoll Syndicate, is making a decided hit" on the "Halls," being everywhere received with the warmest applause. She is encored nightly, and has invariably to do a couple of extra turns." A fine crop of remarkably large carrots is to be seen just now in the garden of Mr William Lewis situated on the slope facing the Tenby Golf Links. The vegetables are the largest of their kind we have yet seen locally, and eloquent testimony as to the great fertility of the soil in which they have flourished so suc- cessfully. In connection with the proposal to form a Ratepayers' Association at Tenby, forms have during the past week been delivered to every burgess with the object of taking a vote on the matter. Before proceeding further the pro- moters are anxious to ascertain the feeling in the town in the movement, and ratepayers are requested to vote for or against it on the paper left with them. Mr James A. Richards, of No. 10. Park Road, Tenby, has recently set up as a public typist, and is prepared to undertake all kinds of work of this decription at very moderate prices. We have had practical experience of Mr Richards's skill, and can confidently recom- mend him to anyone who may be in need of his services as a typist. He also, we may mention, undertakes the tuition of the typewriter, and pupils will find his fees very moderate. During the present season we have come across more than one visitor with curious ideas as to the standing of Tenby. We have heard it repeatedly referred to as "a village," oue Birmingham resident stating that in his city Ten by was considered as such. But, on the other hand, the outraged dignity of the "loyal and ancient borough," has to a certain extent been soothed by the allusion by a Londoner to our Lord Mayor A former well-known resident at Tenby, in the course of a business letter to us, makes the following significant remarks :—" I was at New Quay, Cardiganshire, this August, and had glorious weather. The place was full of good class visitors. Tenby ought to take a tip from New Quay, viz,Don't have any band, pierrots, concerts, niggers, etc. People of means in the present day want quiet. They get enough entertainments at home." 0$0 Mr Charles W. Millar, who recently wrote the following letter to The Times, forwards us a copy of same for insertion I would advise the hotel-keepers and tradesmen of Malvern to ask their fellow-tradesmen at Brighton what is the principal cause of that Queen of Watering Places being in its present depressed condi- tion. They will find it is the cheap excursions pouring tens of thousands of trippers into the once prosperous town—now deserted by the class of people who made it pay." September's fine and genial weather has had the welcome effect of keeping the season alive I at Tenby, the number of new arrivals being far above the average for this month, whilst they are of a decidedly better class than the general run of those who came to the town during August. The fine weather we have lately ex- perienced has enabled ua to see Tenby at its best. The beaches have been well patronized and bathing is still in full swing, although the machines have been taken up from the South Sands. Lieutenant Coltart, of the 4th King's Regi- ment (whose headquarters are at Liverpool) who met with a serious cycling accident at Tenby during the recent Lawn Tennis Tourna- ment, proceeded to Loudon last week, ac- companied by his mother, and on Sunday underwent a successful operation at the hands of an eminent specialist. Lieutenant Coltart, who was to have returned to Liverpool with his regiment the same night, was, it will be remem- bered, cycling down the hill leading into The Green when a dog crossed his track, and in endeavouring to avoid it he was thrown from his machine, sustaining very serious injuries, which necessitated his lying up at the R-njal Gate House Hotel for three or more weeks. In West Wales this spell of fine weather is considered a direct answer to prayer. For weeks nightly prayer meetings have been held even as far up the line as Llanelly. The one subject of supplication was fine weather, and it was pretty to witness the faith and confidence with which the appeal was made. At one of the Llanelly meetings the story was told of a little girl who attended a meeting one summer called to supplicate for rain. She carried her grandfather's umbrella. Asked why she did so, she replied, "If we come and pray for rain we must be prepared for it." As it happened it was raining heavily when the meeting finished, and she was the only one to escape the down- pour. Cumberland House, Esplanade, Tenby, has been let furnished to Mr Moore Gwynn, who will come into residence about October 15th. Committee meetings of the Tenby Town Council will be held this (Thursday) afternoon, the first for several weeks. —- ♦ -— "The Nomads" are booked for the De Valence Gardens, Tenby, next week, this being their first visit to the town. A letter dealing with the needs of Ten by from a visitor's point of view will be found on our fourth page. The following subscriptions on behalf of the Tenby Promenade Band are acknowledged with thanks Mr J. D. Mason, 10s. 6d. Mr C S Smith, 10s. "W. H. P. lOs. There is a possibility that the famous resi- dence known as Castle Hall," Milford Haven, will shortly be let to a community of women for a convent. Mr Yeomans, dentist, has taken Dinas Cottage, Queen's Parade, Tenby, to be vacated by Mr Conway Lloyd at the approaching Christmas quarter. Mr J. J. Tower, postmaster of Tenby, left on Monday for a month's holiday, and during his absence Mr W. H. Blanche, chief clerk, will be in charge as acting postmaster. The charming weather prevailing during the past couple of weeks has been of great help in the removal of the valuable contents of Laugharne Castle to the Abbey, Penally, which will shortly be occupied by Mr and Mrs Power. Mr and Mrs Kesterven, of London, depart from No. 5, Esplanade to-morrow (Friday) after a visit extending over seven weeks. They have been so pleased with their holiday at Tenby that they have already secured the refusal of the same house for next season. The Pembrokeshire Licensed Victuallers' Association, at a meeting held at Haverford- west last week, decided, in consequence of the increased license and other duties, to raise the price of beer in the county to sixpence a quart (out-door) from fivepence, the present price, the increase to take effect on October 1st. .=::s. The other day (writes a correspondent) a man old and deaf, came out of goal after twelve months' imprisonment. It was presently ex- plained to him that there was a new King on the throne. "Who's that?" he asked. "George." "Eh?" "GEORGE." "I can't hear you." "GEORGE." \Vhat: That little Welsh solicitor ? =40"'7- Mr Malcolm Scott, a very popular and versa- tile comedian, from the Palace and Pavilion Theatres of Variety, London, supported by a full company of first-class Metropolitan artistes, will appear at the Royal Gate House Assembly Rooms, Tenby, to-morrow (Friday) and Satur- day nights in a special programme. For further particulars readers are referred to the announcement in our advertisement columns. During the season now drawing to a close Tenby has been visited by more motor cars than ever. the number easily establishing a record. Over one week-end in August there were no less than fifty-two cars, all sorts and makes, housed in the garage of Messrs. George Ace Limited. The garage of Mr A. W. Ran- dall, of "The Motor House," has also been greatly in demand throughout the season. The many friends of the Rev. A. H. Bancroft (son of the late Rev. George Bancroft, of Saun- dersfoot) will be pleased to hear he has been offered and has accepted the living of Dunton, near Fakenham, in the diocese of Norwich. The gift is in the hands of the Lord Chancellor. Mr Bancroft is at present a curate at Leigh Pinton, near Malvern. He will leave there shortly with the good wishes of the parishioners to take up his new duties. Mr William Lewis has recently planted a number of fine shrubs and plants on the piece of shelving ground opposite the Tenby Golf Links, his treatment of this land, which not so very long ago was in a disgraceful condition, bringing about a marked improvement in its general appearance. Quite a variety of shrubs have been put in, and all of them, with perhaps just a solitary exception here and there, are thriving remarkably well. More than one ratepayer asks us what has become of the Culvert Re-construction Scheme ? Is the matter to be allowed to drag on over another winter and summer, or do the Corpora- tion intond to make a serious. effort to grapple with it without further loss of time. We have, unfortunately, during the present season, heard of cases in which visitors to the town have called the Culvert a "sewer" and a "drain," and, being afraid of it, have given this part of the otherwise beautiful sands a wide berth. The Board of Trade inquiry into the loss of ss. Dalsevf, of Glasgow, has been fixed to com- mence to-day (Thursday), at Middlesborough. The ss. Dalserf sailed from Penarth Dock on July 9th last with a cargo of coal, and stranded on Grassholm Island, Pembrokeshire, in a dense fog on July 10ch. Salvage operations were carried on until August 22nd, when the vessel broke up and became a total wreck. The Dalserf, was commanded by Captain Wil- liams of Cardiff. The three R's best known to cyclists are Rigid, Rapid and Reliable, the motto of the Raleigh Cycle Company. These qualities apply to all Raleigh machines, irrespective of price. A Henley-on-Thames correspondent has just written in terms of high appreciation of the eight guinea machine, which he has ridden for a year, covering some thousands of miles in all weathers, without having to expend a single halfpenny on repairs.—The local agent for these celebrated machines is Mr A. W. Randall, "The Motor House," Warron Street, Tenby. On Saturday morning the Cunarder Caronia, from New York, landed over 100 passengers, a large number of mails, and considerable weight of silver bars at Fishguard. On Sunday morning the Booth liner Hilary landed pas- sengers from South America, and on Monday the Lusitania arrived with a large passenger list. The first steamer to call on the outward journey at Fishguard is the ss. Allerls, of the Blue Funnel Line. Passengers from London and the South of England were embarked for Las Palmas and Sydney. The laying out and kerbing and chanelling of the piece of land in South Parade have been proceeding quite merrily apace, but apparently without the official sanction or knowledge of the Town Council as a corporate body,3 for just now members are going about asking in wonder who gave the orders, and were the money is coming from to pay for the work. It is rather an awkward position for a town coun- cillor to be placed in to confess, when asked about the progress of the public affairs, that he is not in the know," and therefore unable to give his ratepayer constituents any information. Those who reside in the picturesque little village of Penally are more than grateful to Mr Clement J. Williams, J.P., for his kindness and generosity in having erected patent fencing round the Church School. When the new fence first appeared, it was thought by some that the parish would be called upon to defray the cost of same, but Mr Williams, with his accustomed liberality and kindly forethought, has under- taken the much-needed improvement. The foncing, for which Messrs. Morris Brothers, ironmongers, Sheffield House, Tenby, are the local agents, and under whose personal direc- tion it was erected, will stand as a landmark in- dicating one of the many acts of generosity on Mr Williams's part for the village of Penally, whose benefactor he has now been for so many years.
