"LOCAL SIFTI NQS. 'I To all our readers both at home and abroad we wish a very merry and happy Christmas. Tenby Corporation workmen's wages last week amounted to the sum of j351 5s. 2d. and carting to Bl 4s. 6d. The Rev. N. Chetwode Ram, M.A., Rector of Tenby, will be married to Miss Clive at Brompton Church, London, on January 12th. The BELGRAVE HOTEL, Esplanade, Tenby, is now replete with every convenience and accom- modation for visitors. Tariff upon application Manageress. »-m Last week's tolls from the Tenby Market amounted to B5 8s. lid. and the receipts from the Royal Victoria Pier and Castle Hill lava- tories to 2s. 8d. »>♦ Lord St. Davids is one of the richest men in the commercial world. His initials and his wealth have (says a correspondent) earned him the nick-name in City circles of "B 8. d." The "welcome Guest," the "Mnwelcome Guest," the "speeding Guest," the "parting Gueat," and the happy Guest" were some of the phrases used by speakers on both sides in the recent Pembroke Boroughs Election. A large percentage of Cardiff's tailors (says the Western Mail), it is interesting to note, are natives of Pembrokeshire. The bulk of the dairymen hail from the West of England. The majority of the drapers are from West Wales. Messrs. Beynon Brothers, Limited, builders and contractors. Warren Street, Tenby, have secured the order for the erection of a seaside residence and motor garage at the corner of Queen's Parade, Tenby, for the Rev. R. H. Wilmot, of Hereford. hH In aid of the fund whidh is being promoted for the purpose of bringing champion golfers to Tenby next August, a grand entertainment, concluding with the stirring play The Drums of Oude, will take place in the Royal Gate House Assembly Rooms on Tuesday night, December 27th, when several well-known local amateurs will take part. Reserved seats (2s. 6d.) can now be obtained at Mr Cowtan's Music Ware- house, St. Julian Street. For further parti- culars readers are referred to the advertisement in another column. His Majesty the King of Spain has conferred on Sir Owen Philipps, K.C.M.G., of Amroth Castle, the Gold Medal of the Spanish Red Cross Society. In aid of the Tenby Branch of the Church Army a variety entertainment will take place in the Royal Gate House Assembly Rooms on Monday night, January 2nd. The annual tea and entertainment in con- nection with the Penally Congregational Church will be held on Monday, January 2nd. Tea at four entertainment at seven o'clock. _++-- The annual dinner in connection with the Tenby Lodge of the R.A.O.B. will take place at the Prince of Wales Hotel next Thursday night at 7.45. m Mr John D. Gwyther, draper, is now clearing his well-assorted stock of drapery at greatly reduced prices, before removing to larger premises in St. George Street, Tenby. j The scholars of the Tenby County School, under the direction of Mrs J. W. B. Adams, will produce a play at the Royal Gate House Assembly Rooms next February, the proceeds of which will be devoted on behalf of the school library and sports fund. The Tenby Committee of the Royal National Life-boat Institution acknowledges with thanks the following sums collected on behalf of the Institution :—Per Miss Harvey, B12 4s.; Mrs Egerton Allen, £2 2s. 6d.; Miss L. E. Jones- Lloyd, £3 19s. lid.; Dr. Bryant, £1. Under the auspices of the Tenby Congrega- tional Young Men's Society a musical and literary competitive meeting will be held in the Congregational School-room, Warren Street, next Wednesday night. For full particulars readers are referred to the advertisement in another column. We are asked by the local postal authorities to intimate that to-day (Thursday), Friday, and Saturday, frequent collections will be made from the town letter boxes, in order to cope with the extra Christmas rush, and that the tablet time indicator will be suspended on these dates. There was an abnormally high tide at Porth- clais, St. David's, the sea coming up to the gasworks, and boats lying high up on the beach were carried bodily up to the main road. The gale at five o'clock was at its height, and was the wildest experienced at St. David's for very many years. ——<—— "There is no truth in the rumour; it is entirely without foundation. You can say that officially from the Admiralty," was the reply a London Press representative received when he, on Saturday, inquired at Whitehall as to the truth or otherwise of the report that heavy discharges are to take place at Pembroke Dock- yard, and that the dock-yard will soon be closed. Mr W. Noble, sign painter, Tenby, has just executed for Mr S. P. Pugh, tobacconist, Haverfordwest, two striking mural advertise- ments of Messrs. Player's and Hignett's tobaccos. One represents a life-like portrait of a sailor's head encircled by a lifebuoy, and the other a golden butterfly in rich colours. Etoth pictures are admirably executed, and most effective in arresting attention. M-l Mr William Bennett, of Castle Hill, Bwlch- mawr, Dinas, Pembroke, shopkeeper, who died on the 6th November last, left estate of the gross value of B1158 18s. 10d., with net per- sonalty nil, and probate of his will, dated 20th December, 1873, has been granted to his widow, Mrs Martha Carter Bennett. The testator left his estate upon trust for his wife for life, with remainder to his children. ■— >♦« Mr J. W. B. Adams, M.A., who has held the position of Headmaster of the Tenby County .School since its opening in September, 1895, has been appointed Headmaster of a large Secondary School near London. Whilst we congratulate Mr Adams on his new appoint- ment, we at the same time express our great regret at his removal from a local sphere where he has achieved the most gratifying success from an educational point of view. General Sir Francis Lloyd, commanding the Welsh Division, announced at a distribution of prizes at Carnarvon on Friday night that the next brigade camp of the Welsh Territorials would be in Pembrokeshire, which he was under orders to visit with the view of selecting suitable ground. He pointed out that the difficulty generally was to find, not camping ground, but manoeuvring ground. He agreed with a remark which had fallen from the Mayor that Snowdon district was in many respects ex- cellent, two remarkable staff rides having been carried out there with excellent results, but what was desired in the present case was en- closed country. M-« On Thursday evening last a team representing the Tenby Miniature Rifle Club shot a post match with a team of the St. Thomas Club, Haverfordwest, the event resulting in a win for Tenby by 22 points. This is the first of the matches for Tenby to shoot in connection with the Pembrokeshire Miniature Rifle League. A match will be shot with the Narberth Club to-morrow (Friday) evening. The following are the scores:—Tenby—Ivor Morris, 96; A. Parcell, 96; A. Francis, 95 D. Lewis, 95 W. H. Phillips, 94 J. M. Evans, 92 W. M. Parcell, 92 J. Warlow, 91; total 751. Haver- fordwest—J. Thomas, 97 T. Thomas, 93 W. G. Lloyd, 93 S. Watkins, 92 W. J. Morris, 92 B. Davies, 91 T. Nicholas, 86 J. Rees, 85; total 729. To make sure of pleasing the youngsters nowadays one has to be exceedingly careful in the choice of Christmas presents. There is no boy or girl who would not be delighted, how- ever, if the Yule-tide gift took the form of a bicycle. In the window of the London depot of the Raleigh Cycle Company there is a huge Christmas stocking containing a juvenile Raleigh bicycle. A similar stocking is given with every juvenile machine purchased before Christmas. The Raleigh juvenile bicycle, boy's or girl's, costs £6 10s., a very low price when one con- siders that the machine is specially designed and built in view of the necessity of safeguarding undeveloped muscles from harmful strain and of the rough usage to which it is likely to be subjected.—The local agent for these popular machines is Mr A. W. Randall, "The Motor House," Tenby. The following additional subscriptions on be- half of the Mayor of Tenby's Christmas Beef Fund are acknowledged with thanks: —One Gllinea-Mr Robert Lock, Mr William Lewis.

Griffiths, Mr Peerless, Mr Luly, Mr C. A. Blake. i One of the survival of the Flemish occupation of South Pembrokeshire is the long-handled, heart-shaped shovel, found also in Belgium and in Ireland, with which a great deal of farm work is done and the "culm" for the "ball" fires is mixed. Balls" is a mixture of culm and clay. It is made up into small balls with the hands, and the fire carefully built up night and morning, and never allowed to go out; it makes a red, glowing fire of good heat, but little flame. There will be a distribution of prizes to members of No. 2 Co., Pem. R.G.A., T.F., at Saundersfoot on Tuesday next at 5 p.m. The prizes were competed for at various times during the annual training in camp, and are for gunnery, gun-laying, recruiting, attendance at drill, etc. Owing to removals from the district there are now ten vacancies to fill up. It is hoped these will be filled up shortly so that our local company can still hold the lead it has in being up to strength. m Sir George Armstrong, Bart., R.N who left the Pembroke and Haverfordwest Boroughs to contest one of the seats at Southampton, which Colonel Ivor Philipps (brother to Sir Owen Philipps, the late member for t he Pembroke Boruoghs) has jointly represented for several years now, failed to get in. As a matter of fact, out of four candidates, the gallant baronet was the bottom of the poll, failing to make hardly any impression on the constituency as regards the number of votes polled. It is not without significance (says the Daily Telegraph) that all the naval ports have declared for Unionist candidates—except Pembroke and Haverfordwest. This constituency is only naval in a slight degree, as the dock-yard is a very small one. Portsmouth returns two Unionists, two more Unionist M.P.'s have been elected at Devonport, and another couple by the sister town of Plymouth while Chatham, after co- quetting with Labour in 1906, returned to the Unionist fold last January, and has shown itself of the same mind this week. The unanimity of the important naval ports is all the more note- worthy because comparatively few officers have votes-probably not 25 per cent. 00 a At the last sitting of the Mathry (Pembroke- shire) Police Court, Dr. Williams, J.P., the Hon. Secretary of the St. David's branch of the Lifeboat Institution, left the Bench to be charged before his colleagues, jointly with Phillip Reynolds and Alfred John Reynolds, brothers, of Treglemish, with being illegally in the Grove Hotel, St. David's, ten minutes before midnight on the 29th of October. Mr Tombs submitted for the defence that the doctor had been called in professionally, and that he and Phillip Reynolds were guests of Arthur Reynolds, who remained on the premises until the following night. Without hearing the whole of the defence, the Bench dismissed all the cases, including that against the licensee, Richard Barkway. 0$4 During last Friday's gale much damage was done to property in Solva, Pembrokeshire. Houses were flooded and the streets resembled a scene in Venice. The ketch Thomas and Sons (of Milford) broke from her moorings, and was driven up high and dry. Her boat was practically wrecked. The new bridge over the river was completely carried away by the sea. On Friday evening Mrs Allen, the proprietress of the hotel, had to leave the premises as the water was pouring in, and the house was surrounded by a sheet of water. Carriages to Haverfordwest were nearly upset by the force of the wind, and the mail cart had to travel by another route, and was several hours late reaching Solva on Saturday morning. Several houses have been damaged, roofs being stripped and windows smashed. m The Great Western vessels (Fishguard ser. vice) outgoing and incoming, were tossed about wildly during last week's gale, being delayed several hours. At four o'clock the steam hopper barge parted cables and drifted among other craft, taking with her the schooner Snotvdon, of Carnarvon, bound for Swansea with 120 tons of slates. The steam tug P aimer ston went in pur- suit, and the crew of the Snowdon boarded the tug at a crucial moment. Immediately after- wards the Snowdon struck the breakwater high up and, heeling over, sank. The skipper and the owner, together with the crew of three, were taken ashore to Glendower Hall, where they were provided with hot food and other comforts. The steam hopper barge and another sailing craft in danager, were secured and brought back to port. It was the worst westerly gale ever experiencod at Fishguard. For years past an effort has been made by some of the people of Aberystwyth to clear the streets of carts on market days, stalls, on fair days, and fish trucks all the year round. A couple of years ago the Council made some pro- vision for the fish-sellers in the meat market, but the scheme has not been carried out. Recently an order was made prohibiting the erection of stalls, and people who had goods for sale, including woollen manufacturers from different parts of the county, set up their tem- porary places of business in the Smithfield, where there were many attractions on the three fair days. But the arrangement was unsatis- factory to tradespeople in the upper part of the town, who lost customers, and at the last meeting of the Town Council a petition was read from a number of them asking the authorities to allow the stalls to be again placed in positions which they had occupied from time immemorial. Moving the adoption of the Gas and Water Works Committee at the Milford Haven Council on Friday night, Mr G. S. Kelway mentioned that the committee had recom- mended that the Bill to be promoted by the Docks Company in the next Parliament be opposed. Amongst other things the Docks Company were seeking powers to construct water works and to sell water on the docks. During the last eighteen years, he said, the Council had spent £ 20,000 in water works, involving annual repayments of principal and interest of JE1200. This expenditure had been incurred mainly for the trade of the port. Colonel Roberts said the opposition was a very proper course to take, and if they neglected to take it, lie thought no one would be more surprised than the astute chairman of the Docks Company. Not many years ago the Council were unable to satisfy all the demands for water, but now a reservoir capable of storing twenty million gallons had been constructed, and the supply was ample, for many years, for both port and town. It was unanimously de- cided to oppose the Bill.
