NOT A STRANGER TO TENBY. What we give in these columns week after week is not the word of strangers to Tenby, whose evidence would be difficult to investigate. It is the word of Tenby men and women, and the unmistakably hearty way they speak out is bound to impress us all. Mr Wm. Cuff, of 17, St. Domingo Place, Tenby, is a well-known and much respected resident of this town he will be recognised as a member of the Salvation Army, having joined just after a corps was established in the town some twenty years ago. A few years ago," says Mr Cuff, I used to be troubled very much with bad pains in my back, probably caused by my getting wet. They became so sharp that they quite prevented me from moving about. At my work I do a lot of stooping, and I remember the time when I have been almost set.' There were also symptoms of urinary disorder, and now and again I suffered with ,my head, sometimes coming over so dizzy that I could not stand for long. My appetite fell away, and I was easily tired. I tried plasters for my back, but I don't believe they did any good at all. k who LAD derived benent bom Doan's backache kidney pills advised me to try this medicine. I sent for some, and was glad to find the pills soon gave me ease my back became less painful, and the urinary complaint was corrected. I could eat and sleep better, and my health generally was improved. I can certainly say that Doan's backache kidney pills cured me, and I think it only right that I should let others know of the benefit I have received." Over 3 years after his cure, Mr Cuff said I am as well as can be, and I never let a chance go by of speaking for Doan's backache kidney pills." Doan's backache kidney pills are two shillings and ninepence per box, or six boxes for thirteen shillings and ninepence. Of all chemists and stores or post free, direct from the Foster-McClellan Co., 8, Wells Street, Oxford Street, London, W. Be sure you get the same kind of pills as Mr Cuff had.
PAYING FOR MOONSHINE. At the bend of the road the young mountaineer turned down a ravine, and in fifteen minutes we saw him coming back with something under his coat. What are you going to give him ? I asked. Seventy-five cents," said the agent decisively. Ob, give him a dollar anyhow. He walked two miles." That's nothing to him." He'll have to go for more," I urged. "That's nothing time and distance mean nothing to these fellows." The young fellow pulled a quart bottle from his coat that seemed to be filled with water, and the following formula was now gone through "If you were over in Kentucky now," said the agent, and wanted a quart of liquor, how much would you give for it ?" The moonshiner answered with perfect seriousness This ain't a full quart, but ef it was, I'd leare seventy-five cents." The agent drew three quarters from his pocket. Well, I ain't givin' you anything. I'm just goin' to play crack-a-loo with that wagon track and forthwith he slowly and skilfully tossed the coins at the rut in the road, the mountaineer watching him without a smile. We left him there standing by the quarters, and once I started to look back. "No use," said the agent, "he won't pick 'em up till we are out of sight. He can't swear we gave him the money, we can't swear that he took it—and there you are."—From On the Trail of the lonesome Pine," by John Fox, Jr., in the October Scribner."
WHEN GENERAL FUNSTON DUCKED. I was aiming the fifteenth shell when a bullet struck one of the trunnions almost at my nose. My nerves had been getting pretty shaky from several narrow escapes in sighting preceding shots, and I must confess that I threw myself flat on the ground and rolled to cover. Joyce jumped over me, quickly sighted the piece, and sprang from the gun. The imperturbable Pennie, lying on the ground and smoking a cigarette, jerked the lanyard and fired the last shot from this terrible death-trap. General Gomez had dele- gated to General Rosa the necessary authority to discontinue firing from this position whenever he thought best, and the latter, who was near at hand, ordered us to take cover in the ravine, abandoning the gun for the time being, although it was in no danger of capture, owing to the proximity of strong supports. Now that they had put the gun out of action, the Spaniards con- centrated their fire on the Cuban infantry and inflicted several casualties. It was necessary to recover the gun, so in about half-an-hour three of us crawled stealthily out of the ravine and wriggled our way to it. Taking the trail-rope, we made a quick run, and despite a hot fire reached the ravine and tumbled down the bank with little ceremony, pulling the gun after us with such haste that it landed up side down in the bottom. -From" Cascorra, the First Cuban Siege," by General Frederick Funston, in the October Scrib- ner."

The gun which till quite recently gave Green- I wich mean time to the people of Swansea, and was such a source of alarm to High Court Judges that when they eat at Assizes it had to be silent, is now to be removed to Fishguard, where at least it will not disturb Assize Court proceedings, as it did on one occasion when its sudden and unexpected boom caused a worried judge to jump out of his chair and exclaim, Oh, good God Almighty, what's that ?" Ever afterwards orders were given for the gnn to be disconnected during Assize time, but this was V often forgotten on the opening day, and those, "in the know" used to watch how the judges, would take the shock, which frequently caused.. them to give very visible expressions of the! x alarm. The gun, too, gave the time for th e dinner hour at the various works. Once it w is discharged nearly an hour before time by « flash of lightning. The men instantly "dowr,ted tools," but they generally took care not to re- sume till the proper time.

TALK ABOUT INNS. Do you object to talk about inns ? asks Thackeray of the readers of hia "Roundabout Papers." It always seems to me to be very good talk. Walter Scott is full of inns. In Don Quixote and 1 Gil Bias there is plenty of inn talk." Ah, but who reads Cervantes and Walter Scott and Le Sage in these days ? Such authors as they are no criterion. And if inns are tolerated at all, it is only because they run garages for our motor-cars. As for Literature, what concern has Literature with inns that stand less than thirty stories high-with a frontage on the Avenue ? Not with Dickens alone, but with his eighteenth- century forbears Fielding and Smollett and Sterne-inns and their keepers were a long suit. Who has forgotten Dessein's in the Sentimental Journey"? Thackeray, in one of those same admirable Roundabout Papers," has taken us back to Dessein's, admirable hostelry that it was He knew the Calais Hotel of old as one of the cleanest, one of the dearest, one of the most com- fortable," in all Europe. Certainly Dessein's must have been very dear. Oliver Wendell Holmes, writing a letter from Paris in the year 1834, states that wine there cost "just three times as much as at the Palais Royal,and the Palais Royal was never inexpensive.—From The Point of View," in the October" Scribner."

THE "UNDEVELOPED LAND" OF MEDICINE. To the Editor of the Tenby Observer. SIB>—I have to thank the British Medical Journal, of September 3rd, for teaching us these words. They are of immense significance. Some 35 years ago Hutton came to London and prac- tised with extraordinary success the art of bone- setting" in the West End. Of course, the doctors were unfriendly. They declared that he was a quack, just as they declared that Harvey was a mere circulator, and asserted that all Hutton's science lay in chance cures. But the movement thus instituted went on. There are now eight schools of bone-aetting under Governmental recog- nition in the United States, with 12,000 students who pay annually £ 40,000 in tuition fees alone. These startling facts have induced Dr. Alexander Bryce, of Glasgow and Cambridge, to take the matter into study. He admits that he has been interested in the bone-setter's methods of treatment because of the remarkable improvement in some of his own reputedly incurable patients." And after careful examination, he has come to the conclusion that there must be virtue in a method which has such vitality as to spread all over a continent in a few years, and, at the present rate of progress, bids fair to travel all over the world." Dr. Bryce points to the fact that Dr. Wharton Hood, after a thorough investigation of the methods of the late Mr Robert Hutton, declared that his experiences Were invaluable and the results astounding. But Dr. Bryce, while fighting for the admission of this new form of scientific bone-setting among the recognised methods of treatment practised by the medical profession," is not as generous to me as Was Dr. Wharton Hood to Mr Hutton. Yet for nearly 20 years, as Hutton's'successor, and after operating on over 30,000 oases, I have repeatedly exhorted the Faculty to investigate this important branch of therapeutics. Almost four years ago I wrote to the medical papers offering to submit these methods to any test before an authorised Committee of qualified surgeons, but no heed was given to my plea. May I ask you, sir, to insert this letter in your columns, and thus direct the attention of surgeons to Dr. Bryce's paper on a subject which is of such vital importance to suffering humanity, and which the Lancet years ago described as a neglected corner of the domain of surgery." Yours, etc., H. A. BARKER. Hamilton House, 12a, Park Lane, London, W., Sept. 22nd, 1910.
OLD SPAIN IN CALIFORNIA. It is not a highway in Spain-this Camino Real -that I mean to follow, but a highway in our own land, Spanish as any in Iberia, a road of infinite variety, long enough to traverse that peninsula, and running, as it would there, from the desert wastes of mountain plateaus to the orange groves and palmettos of soft lands of Bun- shine. The sole part of California that the Spanish exploited was the portion included in these Coast Range mountains, de Maufras on his map marking the great interior valleys only with the generic legend This country is even more beautiful than the inhabited portion of California its climate is milder, it offers fertile fields, superb forests for lumber, and vast prairies where graze herds of deer, antelope, and wild horses."—From The King's Highway of California," by Ernest Peixotto, in the October Scribner."
