For the long term of thirty-two vears Mr Davies had oeen with them,and hat. done his duty conscientiously and truthfully. In his opinion one of the greatest things necessary for a police constable was to be truthful. He wished Mr Davies to feel that'he weuld be received with open arms whenever he visited them. On the other hand he felt that it was not pleasant to part with their' comrade. He hoped Mr Davies would live long to carry the stick with him, and to enjoy his pension. He supposed the stick wo«W last for many years. As to the clock, Supt Phillips said it would remind him of the passing time as well as the time he had spent in the force. Of course, it Y- L_1: would last longer than the SUCK. in ..auuiug oresents over, Supt Phillips said he had grea. I easure in doing so, and wished Mr Davies every prosperity and along lite.-Sergaant Phillip sa.d he bad nothing to add to what had been said; but was sorry that Mr Davies was leaving.

He was not a bard, but he could not resist the temptation to compose a few lines for the occasion, which Mr Thomas then read. P C Thomas Thomas endorsed what had been previously said about Mr Davies, and remarked that be had always been ready to give a helping hand whenever necessary. Mr Thomas also read some verses which he had composed. Mr Davies, the recipient of the present, said that he was not much of a speaker, as they well knew. He was very proud to hear such speeches as had been given, in fact, they had said too much about one ining, c that of taking a wife. He did not know where to borrow words to thank them enough for what they bad given him that day. They must have given liberally before they could get the presents.
