f: LOCAL NOTES. .'1'- I am proud to say that my pen has not, as I feared, lost the power to attract a few pounds from the pockets of the charitable. During the past week I have thought it right to refuse small contributions from people with kind hearts but practically empty purses, as the few pounds required to relieve the pres- sing needs of the widow for whom I appealed last week will, I am sure, be cheerfully given by some of my readers who are blessed with plenty of this world's goods. *#* A lady reader of the Tenby Observer, and one who has regularly sent me a handsome donation towards any little fund I have promoted, wrote me on Friday last enclosing a cheque for :€2, with the request that it should be acknowledged as from E. A. which I gratefully do here also 4s. from Two Sympathisers 5s. from Scotia 5s. from "Laston House;" 2s. from "A Mother," and Is. from "Schoolmistress." Another widow writes enclosing 5s.— This small gift from my boy and myself is not out of our 'abundance,' as you well know But it is a great pleasure to send it for your poor widow. I hope you'll soon get your £ 5. I am sure it's a very deserving case." "Sympathy" also sends P.O. for 5s., and Miss W., 2s. 6d. 1\< 1f I am paying out the money in weekly instalments, and am very pleased to be able to announce that the rest has already done the widow much good; and generous donors to this little fund will, I hope, feel assured that she most gratefully appre- ciates their timely help. I have also sent one shilling per week to the little mother of the family, with strict injunctions to buy something good for herself with it. This poor mite is just twelve years old, works harder than any little pony, and has not the faintest idea that she is doing anything unusual. The extra shilling sent her was a delightful surprise, and I hope to receive more donations from readers, as the five pounds I asked for will not defray the cost of all the help I should like to see given to this deserving family. 1f 1f. I hear that the The Nomads," the troupe of entertainers who appeared at the De Valence Gardens last week, followed the example of Mr Malcolm Scott and party by chartering the smart little fishing smack Hermes to convey them to Ilfracombe, where they were due to perform last Monday night. Unfortunately, The Nomads" were not favoured with what is called a Soldier's Wind" experienced by Mr Malcolm Scott and party, who sailed direct from the Royal Victoria Pier at Tenby alongside the pier extension at Ilfracombe without making a single tack, but last Sunday, with the wind from the south-east, the Hermes left about half-past ten in the morning with a dead beat of thirty miles ahead of her, with. the result that she did not land her passengers until after eight; and it was after one o'clock on Monday afternoon when she returned to Tenby. 1f 1f # Craft like the Hermes are excellent sea boats, capable of giving a large amount of health and amusement to people in search of both with moderate means. It has often surprised me that these fine fishing-boats were not made more use of by visitors to Tenby who enjoy the sea breezes, and would like to acquaint themselves with the mysteries of deep sea fishi^ J,. I can personally strongly recommend the Hermes, with Skipper Gregory and Dick Nicholls in charge, as a right, tight, smart little craft, not to be beaten in the Bristol Channel, or probably the English and Irish. 1f The season of 1910 is over. It has not been a good one. Very little has been done in Tenby to amuse the visitors who have come amongst us. There was a good Horse Show, but otherwise the Fishing Competitions con- stituted the principal outdoor amuse- ments. These competitions have been quite a dozen in number. Prizes for them have been cheerfully given the entries have been most satisfactory; the fun great; and the recollections of all participating in them most pleasant. Mr Richard Davies, manager of the London and Provincial Bank, and Mr J. H. Thomas, headmaster of the Parochial Schools, deserve grateful thanks from everybody for the time, trouble, and interest they have devoted to the pro- motion of these successful little events. If a dozen other gentlemen would join together in couples to promote amuse- ments for Tenby, and were only half as successful, what a jolly little place we siould be living in F. B. M. THE TATLER."
