Since its introduction into Haverfordwest, the R.A.O.B. has progressed with remarkable rapidity and now embraces within its ranks a large proportion of the adult male population of the town. Two unusually strong Lodges are already in existence, so that it was not sur- prising there should have been such a large gathering of Buffaloes at the banquet given in the Mariners' Hotel, last week, under the auspices of the St. Bride's Lodge No. 1394. Many of the officers and brethren of the parent Lodge, the Picton Castle, participated and the function proved highly enjoyable and inte- resting. Mr and Mrs Arthur Dickinson have just opened an art depot at Ruabon House, Five Arches, Tenby, and are showing a tastefully selected range of goods. In the art department are local and other sketches, drawing and painting materials, art pottery, vases, etc whilst the fancy work section is well stocked with cushion covers, table centres, d'oyleys, silks, cottons, crochet hooks, needles, thimbles, and everything required for needlework. In the household department will be found brooms, brushes, saucepans, tin and enamel ware, wash- leathers, dusters, and a selection of money and labour-saving specialities. Messrs.

From an advance copy of Old Moore's Almanack for 1911, we observe that the weather for July of next year is predicted to be "un- usually stormy," whilst for August the prophet says" the weather will be cold and disappoint- ing." Nor is there much comfort to be found in the prognostication of the elements during September, Old Moore stating that we may experience some violent storms about the end of the month." But if the three "season" months are to be anything but seasonable, Octo- ber seems likely to make up for it in some degree, it being prophesied that we may expe- rience "lovely weather for almost the whole month." It is worth noting that Old Moore's forecasts generally have, of recent years, been remarkably accurate though for the sake of Tenby we may venture to express the hope that next year his summer weather calculations will be just a little "out of it." The experience of last August we have not yet forgotten, and a second edition of such wreather would hardly be prolitable. At last Friday's special meeting of the Tenby Town Council, the Borough Accountant (Mr T. M. Eastlake) presented a statement showing the condition of the various Corporation accounts at the bank on September 29th, which was as follows District, credit, £ 704 6s. lid. Water, credit, £ 78 0s. 5d. Estate, debit,' £109 Is. Harbour, debit, B605 4s. 6d. In the aggregate the nett credit stood at £ 69 4s. 3d. At the Pembrokeshire Quarter Sessions, held at Haverfordwest on Tuesday last, Mr Abel Thomas, Q.C., presiding, Frank Frawil5 (19), collier, pleaded guilty to having feloniously stolen at Tenby on September 10th, 1910, a lady's gold watch and metal neck guard, a gen- tleman's gold scarf pin, and moneys, the pro- perty of Henry James Foracre, Prince's Head, and was sentenced to nine months' hard labour. With regard to the recent petition from the residents of Greenhill Avenue to the Tenby Corporation calling attention to the nuisance caused by mortar-engine situated in that neigh- bourhood, and in reference to which the Council expressed their inability to interfere, statin* that the matter was one for individual action! we have every reason to believe that this inter- pretation of the powers of the Corporation is an incorrect one. According to the Public Health Act, 1875, certain things are enumerated which are described as nuisances liable to be sum- marily dealt with and a chimney which gives off black smoke (the nuisance complained of in this case) is one of them. Councils, the Act says, are required on being informed of such nuisance to serve a notice to abate on the person causing it if he fails to do so he may be sum- moned before the Justices who may make an order to abate the nuisance, and if he does not obey he is liable to penalties. If the summary remedy is thought insufficient a Corporation may apply for an injunction in the High Court We commend Section 94 of the Act to the serious consideration of the Tenby Town Council.
