Haverfordwest Petty Sessions. Monday.—Before the Mayor (Sir Charles Philipps, Bart), Messrs J. Thomas, T. L. James, W. P. Ormond, T. James, and F. R. Greenish. LICENSE TRANSFERS. The license of the Liverpool Arms was transferred to Emma Elizabeth Fitzgerald. The Falcon Inn license was transferred to James Drinning, the Mayor expressing the hope that there would not be any more convictions, and the applicant promised there should not be any cause of complaint. On the application of James Thomas, a former land- lord, the license of the Gamekeeper's Arms was transferred to himself. It was stated that he had formerly been living at Maenclochog. NOT DRUNK. Thomas Hancock was charged with being drunk and disorderly on the 20th ult., between seven and eight o'clock. George Simmons stated that he was sitting on the window ledge of his house in City Road when defen- dant, who was very drunk, asked How is your calico shirt?" He replied that he did not wear calico shirts but flannels, and defendant said The d-moths eat them." He became abusive and they went inside, but defendant continued to use very bad language. Defendant denied that he was drunk. He was no more drunk than he was now. He said to Simmons, Limping Jane go home to your own house." He called him that because he was talking about him. Mr R. A. G. James said he saw defendant between 6.30 and seven o'clock in the Mariner's Square, and talked with him for quite three minutes. He was quite sober then. Joseph Harries stated that he saw defendant after seven o'clock above Mr Tom Bowen's on the hill, and he was perfectly sober then. The case was dismissed. Defendant applied for his costs, and said he had lost a good deal that day as he had not been able to attend Fishguard market. The Mayor I am afraid we can't; it is not the rule of the court. Defendant: It is very hard for me. The Mayor eventually promised to remit the Court fees, and said defendant would have nothing to pay. Defendant: Thank you, sir. DRUNK. Maurice Whelton, who did not appear, was charged with being drunk on the 17th ult. P.C. Owens deposed to seeing Whelton lying drunk in the side of the hedge in Racecourse Road. He was help- less, and was taken home by two men. Supt. Francis said on June 6th defendant was fined 10s and costs for being drunk and disorderly, and the fine had not been paid. Fined 5s and costs, payment within a week. A GOOD REASON. Joseph Brown, who did not appear, being now in prison for a month, was charged with being drunk, but on the application of Supt. Francis the case was ad- journed for six weeks. DRUNK IN CHARGE. Thomas Williams was charged with being drunk in charge of a pony and cart on the 27th ult. in Market Street. P.S. Phillips deposed to seeing defendant leading a pony and cart down Market Street, and he was staggering about. He followed him to the fishmarket when he got into the cart and fell backwards. A boy named Philpin took him and his cart home. He was very drunk and not fit to take charge. Supt. Francis said there were several previous con- victions, the last being in 1896. The Mayor said they considered it a very serious offence for any man to be in charge of a pony and cart and drunk at the same time. It was very dangerous to the public, and they were determined to stop it to the best of their ability. Fined 10s and costs. A GOOD PROMISE. I James Laugharne was charged with being drunk on the 5th inst. Defendant, who did not appear, wrote a letter promising it should never happen again. P.C. Cousins said he saw the defendant at 9.45 p.m. lying down in St. Thomas Green, helplessly drunk. With the assistance of another police ",constable he was carried home to his house in the Milford Road. Supt. Francis said that was his first offence for drunkenness, but he was fined 5s and costs in June last for obscene language, and that fine had not been paid. Defendant was now fined 5s and costs, payment to be made within a fortnight. HIS FIRST OFFENCE. William Owens was charged with being drunk in St. j Thomas Green on Portneld Fair day. Defendant said he had not been drinking for three months before, aud he had had a drop too much. It was his first offence. The Mayor hoped he would not appear again, and inflicted a fine of 2s Gd. ALLEGED SERIOUS ASSAULT. Margaretta Biggs, in custody, was charged with inflicting grievous bodily harm upon Honora Connor, an old woman, on Thursday night last. Mr W. J. Jones appeared for defendant, whom he said pleaded not guilty. Supt. Francis applied for a remand. Dr. Mills stated that he was called to Connor's house about one o'clock on Friday morning. He found her suffering from a severe compound fracture of the right wrist, and was in a state of gre" frorti the ini i" ■ He had since attended her, and had seen her tnair morning. She was now in the Infirmary, and quite unable to appear. When he first saw her he considered she was in imminent danger, and she was not now out of danger considering her age. which was about 75. Mr Jones asked for defendant to be released on bail as ??l?ded not gui)tv. AVC~' ^uUti t$u-l, said the prosecutrix was her graii4l??i?erand 8h £ Jived with hpr ?

Francis) Do you apply for a rjmaT1 » ni CUSLvy .I -mtpt. Francis I leave that entirely to the Benck. The Mayor: You have no doubt about defendant appearing r Mr Jones said there was no doubt about that. He was quite ready to go on with the case now if the prosecution was prepared. The only witness called to assign the reason for the injuries from which the woman undoubtedly suffered was the grandchild of the injured person, and he was in a position to say that there were a number of independent people there who were prepared to give evidence, and it seemed singular that they were not called that day. The Mayor: We think it is a very serious case, but we are willing to grant bail in two responsible sureties of X25 each. Mr .Tones: Unfortunately my client is unable to give evidence to-day, but if it was Thursday she would be able to do it under the new Evidence Act. Messrs James Lloyd and James Drinning were bound over as sureties, and prisoner was released on their bail. ADJOURNED. William Samuels and Elizabeth Samuels, husband and wife, were charged with using obscene language in Port- field Fair, but in consequence of defendants being at Pembroke Fair that day, the case was adjourned for a fortnight on the application of Supt. Francis. The Mayor He is making more money than will pay the fine. CRUELTY TO A MARE. William Jenkins, carrier, of Broad Haven, who did not appear, was charged with cruelty to a mare on the 26th ult. P.C. Llewellin stated that he saw defendant about one p.m. in St. Thomas Green, driving a mare attached to a cart. He examined the mare and found a wound on the back about the size of a five-shilling piece. Defendant had since told him that he was not coming to the Court, and was willing to pay. The mare was in very poor condition, and was rocking on her legs. She seemed in great pain. P.S. Phillips said the mare was not fit to be at work, notwithstanding the wound. She was shaking all over, and seemed too weak to go along. Supt. Francis said it was the first offence. The Mayor said the Bench were of opinion that it was a very serious case. They were agreed to defend those dumb animals who could not defend themselves, but it was the first offence, and in the hope that he would treat his horses better, feed them better, and take care of them better, they would impose a fine of 10s and costs. (To Supt. Francis) If you see him tell him if he ever comes again he will be fined very seriously indeed. ALLEGED CRUELTY TO A MARE. John Hughes, a boy, was charged with illtreating a mare by working it on the 4th inst., and Frederick Hannam was charged with causing it to be worked. P.C. Davies stated that about 3.30 p.m., in company with P.S. Phillips he saw Hughes driving the mare in a trap down High Street. The mare seemed to be quivering under the harness, and on examination he found five wounds underneath the back saddle of the size of a five shilling piace. They were old wounds and looked as though they had been rubbed again. The boy told him that his master knew about it. Oils had been rubbed on the wounds. On putting his finger to the wounds the mare trembled all over. The Mayor What condition was the mare in ? Witness Fair, sir. Cross-examined by defendant Hannam The wounds were fresh, but they were not running. They were not hard or firm. P.S. Phillips corroborated. The harness was rubbing all the wounds with one exception. When served with the summons the defendant said the inspector for cruelty to animals had told him to keep the mare in, and he had kept it in for six days. Defendant Hannam said he kept the mare in six days, and he thought he would try her that day as he had been hiring the whole of the week. The Mayor; Can you say what caused these wounds ? Defendant: I should think it is owing to the panels of the saddle giving way, but I have had it all re-done softly. The mare is in good condition, and I have only had her four or five months. The case was adjourned for a fortnight for the defen- dant to bring evidence to show the state of the horse before it was taken out, the Mayor remarking that they did not wish to give anyone the stigma of cruelty if they did not deserve it. OBSTRUCTING THE FOOTPATH, John White was charged with obstructing the foot- path in Picton Place on the 26th ult. P. C. Owens stated that about 8.30 p.m. outside the Masonic-hall, in which there was a play proceeding a large crowd of young men and boys collected. He requested them to move on, and all did, leaving the footpath clear, except defendant. He went as far as the New Bridge and returned, the crowd having again collected on the footpath. He acked them to move into the roadway, and all did again except defendant, whom he had to remove by force. Cross-examined by defendant: He was on the pave- ment by himself when witness put him off. Defendant: You did not speak to me personally at all, but to the crowd. Witness: He said he had a perfect right to stand there, and was doing no harm. Defendant: He pushed me off the pavement, and never spoke to me personally at all. Defendant called George Sheehan and George Howells to bear out this statement. The Mayor said there was no doubt the case was proved. The Bench were strongly determined to put an end to that obstruction, which was greatly complained about. They hoped this would be a warning for people to obey the reasonable requests of the police. Fined Is and costs. STRAY ANIMALS. Mary Whelton, who did not appear, being at Mathry Fair, but sent a message pleading guilty, was fined 2s and costs for allowing a horse and a mule to stray on the Portfield Gate Road on the 24th ult. SCHOOL BOARD SUMMONSES. Sixteen School Board summonses, four against one parent, were heard, Mr Moodie (attendance officer) giving evidence, and fines were inflicted.

Roose Petty Sessions.!
Roose Petty Sessions. Saturday.—Before Messrs R. Carrow, J. Thomas, J. Phillips, W. P. Ormond, J. H. Coram, and W. Davies. PUBLICAN FINED FOR SUNDAY TRADING. George Morgans, landlord of the Travellers Rest Inn, was charged with having his house open for the sale of intoxicating liquors on Sunday. Mr W. Davies George appeared for the defence. P.C. Warlow stated that on Sunday, the 18th ult., at three p.m., in company with P.C. Davies, he watched the defendant's house. They concealed themselves about thirty yards away where they had a front view of the house. At 4.35 p.m. William Cumber, of Rhosmarket, and William Jenkins, of Jordanston, knocked at the front door and were admitted, At 4.45 William Rogers, of City Road, Haverfordwest, opened the door and walked in. Thomas Sutton and John Sutton, who lived near, also went in soon after, followed by a youth named James Palmer. The two Suttons came outside, each with a sleever of beer in their hands, and drank it there. The landlord stood talking to them. Thomas Sutton said to John Sutton, "Come and have another," and again they went inside. The police then visited the house, and saw the four men inside with four sleevers of beer upon the table, and a sleever in Cumber's hand. He asked the Suttons what their business was there, and they said they had come in for pop. They repeated this in the presence of the landlord and landlady. Cumber, Rogers, and Jenkins said they were travellers. He asked the meaniug of the Suttons having beer, and the land- lord said he served them with that beer, and he gave it to them. He then told the landlord that Rogers was not a traveller. Cross-examined: They coull have got out of the hedge and into the house before anybody could have seen them. P.C. Davies corroborated, and said Rogers lived within three miles. Supt. Francis And Rhosmarket is within three miles. Mr George said the defendant would tell them that if he had committed a breach of the law he had done so in entire ignorance. He thought the two first men had come from Jordanston, and he knew one of them did. Rogers was under the impression that he lived three miles away. He was a mason living in City Road, and working at Lawrenny. Upon that occasion and previous occasions he had called for refreshments in the full belief that he was entitled to have them. The Suttons were given two glasses of beer by the landlady, and there was no concealment whatever. The door was open, the men Vent in, and the landlord was entitled to dispense hospitality to his friends without injury or interference in any way. He had held the license of the house for many years, and there was no conviction against him. Defendant gave evidence bearing out this statement. He added that he could prove the police were more than 60 yards from the house. P.C. Warlow had said that he saw Palmer in the house but that was wrong, and he could bring evidence to prove it from half-a-dozen people. Palmer was never inside the house. He had his bicycle in his hand all the time, and Cumber went out to ride the bicycle as it had lost one pedal, and he was trying to see if he could ride it with one pedal. Cross-examined by Supt. Francis: Jenkins, Cumber, and the Suttons had two sleevers of beer each. They were talking about going to Church. They were not in the house one hour and fifteen minutes. If the ground was measured he thought it would be found that Rogers lived a distance of over three miles away. The men did not drink any beer in the road at all. Mr Ormond asked defendant if it was his habit to supply thirsty neighbours gratuitously on Sundays ? Defendant said the Suttons used the house all the week, and they asked for a drink of beer which was given them, but that did dot happen once in twelve months. Mrs Morgan, wife of defendant, said the Suttons asked for two sleevers of beer, but she said she could not serve them. She however gave them the beer. They did not pay for it. In reply to Supt. Francis, witness said Palmer was not supplied the same time as the Suttons. She only served the two sleevers. Cumber, Jenkins, Rogers, Palmer, and the Suttons were then charged with being on the licensed premises. Rogers and John Sutton did not appear. Cumber said he was under the impression that he was living three miles from the house. He called in on the way to Church and had two sleevers of beer. Jenkins said he was out for a walk. He told the landlady he came from Jordanston. They did not go to Church. Cumber had a glass of beer with him. Thomas Sutton said he had beer in the house, but the landlady gave it him. They were only there a few minutes. By Mr Ormond; He had not been in the habit of 1 at that public house on Sunday. Palmer said he was passing the house with a bicycle. Tom Sutton asked him if he would have a drink of beer out of his glass, and he did. He did not have any beer from either Mr or Mrs Morgans. Cross-examined: He did not go into the house at all. Mr Ormond: How long did Cumber have possession of your bicycle ? Witness: About five minutes altogether. By Supt. Francis He was quite sure he did not go into the house, and was not off the road. The magistrates retired for fifteen minutes, and on their return Mr Carrow said they had given the matter every consideration. They were sorry they were bound to come to the conviction that defendant had infringed the law, but on account of his previous good character and the fact that he had not been there before he would be fined 10s. Cumber would be fined 2s 6d and the Suttons 2s 6d each. The cases against Jenkins, Rogers, and Palmer would be dismissed. A DOG AND A RABBIT. I Thomas Harris and Walter Roch, of St. Ishmaels, were charged with trespassing on laud in the occupation of James Richards, at Upper Winsel, in pursuit of conies on the 24th ult. Mr R. T. P. Williams prosecuted. Defendants said they did not go off the high road. The dog went through the hedge and killed a rabbit. Andrew Laidlow, gamekeeper to Lord Kensington, stated that he saw Roch walking through a field and the dog was with him. He saw him leave the field with a rabbit. The rabbit was put into Harries' cart. He accused Roch of trespass but he denied it. On speaking to Harries he produced the rabbit, and Roch afterwards admitted the offence. Mr Williams said actual entry upon the land was not necessary for a conviction. Mr Carrow said they were bound to convict, and inflicted a fine of Is each and costs. NEYLAND NEIGHBOURS' QUARREL. I Elizabeth Buckingham, of Cambrian Terrace, Neyland, was charged with assaulting Catherine Vaughan, a neighbour, on the previous Saturday. Mr W. Davies George appeared to prosecute, and said that case had connection with a case which took some considerable time at the sessions a month a^o. Ever since the decision in that case there had been quarrellings, bickerings, and troubles, which culminated in an assault committed by Mrs Buckingham upon Mrs Vaughan by striking her on the arm with a pair of tongs, and she had had to seek medical advice. Complainant, a widow, stated that a lodger had left her and gone to live with Mrs Coles, leaving her in debt. On Saturday night between eight and nine o'clock she went to Mrs Coles to ask for him. The door was opened by defendant, who when she got into the passage struck her across the left arm with a pair of tongs. Since the last police proceedings by her daughter she had been plagued by a system of persecution by the neighbours. She had no doubt it was defendant who struck her as there was no one else in the passage. Sarah Maria Rudram, another neighbour, said com- plainant knocked at the door in the ordinary way. The lodger left her XI IRs in debt, and she went to get the money. She saw complainant come out of the passage with her arm injured. There were two cuts on it. Since complainant's daughter was bound over to keep the peace complainant had had no peace with the neighbours. The passage was in darkness, but there was nobody in it except defendant, although she had since heard that Mrs Cole was hiding behind the curtains. She heard the click when the blow was struck. Dr. Stamper, of Neyland, deposed to dressing the wounds. Complainant was suffering from a wound on the back of the wrist and one on the back of the arm each about the size of half-a- crown. Higher up there was a little skin torn from the arm. The injury would be consistent with a blow from a blunt instrument given with much force. It could have been done by a pair of tongs. P.S. Thomas said he saw the complainant go to the doctor's at J.oO. He called at the house after the wound had been dressed. There was no doubt complainant had been drinking, but she was not drunk. Complainant's daughter was bound over to keep the peace a month ago, and the people who were bound over with her had done their best to try and get her to break the peace. There was a system of persecution on both sides. One who was bound over being unable to pay her fine had gone to prison. For the defence, John Phelan said he left Mrs Vaughan's and went to lodge with Mrs Coles. He owed Mrs Vaughan some money, but he had promised to pay her, and she had kept some of his things. Mrs Vaughan threatened to stick Mrs Coles to the heart. He did not see the assault. Sarah Ann Cole said complainant came to her house twice that day. The first time she threatened to "rip out her inside," and she was afraid of her. That was the reason when she came the second time that she asked defendant to open the door to her. It was all because she took the lodger. Defendant did not strike her, and she could not say how complainant was injured. Defendant strongly denied that she committed the assault. Mr George said the case had been proved, and sug- gested that a fine should be inflicted to give the people peace, and put an end to the quarrel. Mr Carrow said the magistrates were of opinion that the case had been proved. -Defendant had no right to take the law into her own hands. She would be fined 10s and costs, which would include the medical atten- dance. BRUTAL ASSAULT AT NEYLAND. Wm. Davies, a middle-aged man, was charged with assaulting John Rees, a youth, at Neyland, on the 23rd ult. Mr W. Davies George defended, and admitted the offence. Complainant stated that he was going home from work through High Street, Neyland, to Rhosmarket, when he slipped off the pavement, and his dinner can touched a child in the face. Defendant came out and asked who had done it, and he was told that it was complainant who was pointed out to him. Defendant came up, and before he had time to tell him, he knocked him down three times in the road, and kicked him while he was on the ground. Cross-examined There were three or four of them walking along from work. The child was in the gutter. He heard a man tell defendant that he (complainant) had hit the child on purpose. It was about 6.15 at night. Mr George said he was prepared to admit that defen- dant did commit the assault. Defendant had a little girl six years old in a very nervous condition and suffering from St. Vitus's dance. This girl was in the road, and blood was coming from her cheek when defendant saw her. He was told that complainant had struck her on purpose. Then in the passion of the moment defendant struck him, but afterwards he went to the father of the boy, apologised, and offered to pay all expenses. Defen- dant had a very good character, having been in the Trinity service for 14 years. Complainant's father said defendant had not offered to pay any money, but had offered to come to terms. Wm. Smith said the tin belonging to complainant struck the child in the face accidentally, but when com- plainant was pointed out to the father he was told that it was done on purpose. Mr Carrow said defendant ought to exercise more self- control, and inflicted a fine of 10s and costs. QUARRELLING OVER THE SERVICE. Robert Walker, a private in the South Wales Borderers, was charged with obstructing the highway at Neyland, by fighting on the 3rd inst. in Picton Place, and Thomas Geary, an ex-artillery man, was charged with being drunk at the same time and place, P.S. Thomas stated that he saw the two defendants at 10.30 p.m. shouting and swearing. The soldier struck Geary to the ground, and Geary was very drunk. They had been quarrelling about the service, Geary saying he was a better man than Walker. Walker said Geary struck him first. Geary said he could not tell the Bench what he did as he was drunk. An officer from Pembroke Dock said Walker had a clean sheet since 1890. He was wearing good conduct badges, and was entitled to another in about a month. The Bench gave Walker the benefit of the doubt and dismissed the case, but Geary was ordered to pay 7s 6d including costs. The magistrates adjourned for luncheon at this stage. [Before Messrs. W. P. Ormond. W. Davies, and J. H. Coram.] MORE SUNDAY TRADING. Arthur Williams, landlord of the New Inn, Pope Hill, was charged with keeping open his licensed premises for the sale of intoxicating liquor on Sunday, the 18th ult. P.C. Warlow stated that in company with P.C. Davies he went to the defendant's house about a quarter to nine at night. They listened and heard men talking in the back room. They looked through the window under the blind and saw David Woolcock, Lewis Morgan, and the landlord. Woolcock said "Let us have two sleevers, and the landlord said Bring me one in too." He knocked the door and was given admission by the landlady. They saw there were two sleevers on the table about three parts full of beer. Morgans said he was going to stop there that night, and Woolcock said he had only been there a minute. Defendant said there were two sleevers about half full on the kitchen table from Saturday night. There was no beer ordered. P.C. Davies corroborated, adding that he saw the landlady draw the beer as he was watching in front of the house. They asked the landlord what the men were doing in his house, and he could not give any answer. Defendant said Woolcock came to his house about 7.30 about his calves trespassing over Woolcock's land. He asked him in to have a glass of whiskey, and he could not do less than that. Morgan was staying at his house and had supper together, leaving the next morn- ing for Narberth between nine and ten o'clock. Mr Ormond You have heard what the constables say ? Defendant: Yes, and I deny it. Cross-examined by Supt. Francis The sleevers were left from the Saturday night. Mr Morgan had been teaching the singing all day at the chapel, and his daughter had asked him down to his house. The mushroom gatherers from Freystrop were the cause of his trouble there that day because they had broken the fences and the calves had trespassed. He denied that Woolcock ordered two sleevers of beer. Woolcock told him that the Tiddley," had been caught. (Laughter.) David Woolcock stated that about seven o'clock he brought up the calves and defendant asked him into his house. He had a glass of whiskey with. defendant, but did not pay for it. He had had no conversation with defendant about the case. By Mr Ormond Morgan and himself were brother- in-law's, but they had not been having a drop of drink together. By Supt. Francis He did not have any beer, and did not order any. He did not taste beer that day. He told defendant that policemen were watching the Traveller's Rest, but he did not see them himself. Somebody told him. He had had no conversation as to what evidence he should give that day. He did not tell the landlord that Quack, quack and that b-Warlow were watching the Tiddley." (Laughter). David Woolcock and Lewis Morgan were then charged with being on the premises. Morgan did not appear. P.C. Warlow stated that they saw Woolcock sitting down. He heard Woolcock ask the landlord if he had heard that Quack, quack and that b-Warlow had been watching the Tiddley," and that it had been caught. The landlord asked who was meant by Quack, quack," and he said Charlie Davies from Haverford- west." The landlord did not say anything about the calves. He could not say whether the beer was fresh as the froth had been taken off. Cross-examined by Woolcock: The landlord did not tell him that he (Woolcock) had brought up his cattle. P.C. Davies said he saw the landlady drawing the beer, and also carry it in on a tray. Woolcock You tell an untruth I never tasted a glass of beer in the house. Supt. Francis said that in 1890 defendant Williams was twice convicted and cautioned, and in 1891 he was fined 10s and costs and his license endorsed. Mr Ormond said the Bench considered the case proved. They had no wish to endorse the license further than it had been. He would be fined 15s and costs. Woolcock and Morgan would each be fined 2s 6d and costs. DRUNK AND DISORDERLY. William Edwards, of Neyland, was fined 7s 6d for being drunk and disorderly in Front Street, Neyland, at 10.30 p.m. on the 17th ult. P.S. Thomas said he was using bad language. His wife ran out of the house afraid of him, and he had been fighting the same afternoon. He had been fined several times previously. DRUNK IN CHARGE. Bartholomew Whelton was charged with being drunk in charge of a horse and cart at Neyland, on the 26th ult. P.C. D. Thomas stated that defendant was in High Street, Neyland, about six o'clock. The horse and cart had to be put up at the Commercial Inn, and his son fetched defendant home about nine o'clock. Defendant who said that was his first ofience for drunkenness, was fined 7s 6d. A CURIOUS MIXTURE. I James Ulden was tinea 'is bd tor being drunk and disorderly at Honeyboro on the 1st inst., about 12.15 p.m. P.C. D. Thomas said defendant was making a great noise, shouting at the top of his voice, preaching and praying, and using very bad language. A SKIPPER "AT SEA." Thomas Legget, a skipper of Milford, was charged with furiously driving a pony and trap on the 7th inst., at 7.20, in High Street, Neyland. P.S. Thomas said defendant was going at the rate of 12 or 13 miles an hour. He got upset at last, broke the harness, and a portion of the trap. There were a lot of children in the street. Francis Journeaux corroborated, and said the driving was very dangerous. Supt Francis said defendant could steer a vessel, but not a horse and trap. (Laughter). Defendant, who did not appear, was fined 10s and costs. TRESPASSING. [Mr Davies did not adjudicate in the following case]. John Nicholas and William Nicholas, two brothers, living at Rhosmarket, were charged with trespassing in pursuit of partridges. William Allen stated that he heard shots and saw defendants come from Miss Morris's field. They had a black retriever dog with them. He caught them in Mr Anderson's field. One of them had a woodcock in his pocket. They crossed the field six or seven times. Cross-examined: He followed them to see whether they went off the laud. He could not say whether they were in a pathway, or whether there was a pathway there. Defendants' father: Forty years to my knowledge. Defendant John Nicholas said they crossed the field to look for nuts, but somebody had been there before them. The Magistrates' Clerk: You would hardly want nuts with a gun. Defendant said they went out after a kingfisher, but could not get a shot at one, although they saw two. They had had a shot or two at some pigeons, and- were crossing the fields when Allen came and asked them for their names. He said he would report it to the squire, Mr Lort Phillips. They did not kill the woodcock but picked it up. Mr Ormond said they considered the trespass proved, and had decided to be very lenient, fining each 2s 6d and costs. NON-PAYMENT OF POOR RATES. The Cardiff Pure Ice and Cold Storage Company, Milford, were summoned for the non-payment of their poor rate, and on the application of Mr Thomas George, an order for payment was made.

Local Football Notes. I
Local Football Notes. The Harlequins had their preliminary canter on Thurs- day, when teams captained by Newton Jones, and R. Evans (the popular vice-captain), faced each other, and for a practice match some very good form was shown, by the majority of the old players especially. It is pleasing to note that local football is thought much of up the line and by the Welsh Union, as there were to be noticed on the field watching the game, Mr Walter Rees (secretary of the Welsh Rugby Union), and Mr Schofield, a member of the Match Committee of the Union. Probably they were present with a view of selecting some of our local players for higher honours. An examination of referees was held at the Castle Hotel on Thursday, and although nothing officially is yet made known, some of our most popular athletes have come through successfully. To-morrow the Quins play their opening match of the season, the South Wales Borderers being entertained on the Bridge Meadow, where a close and interesting struggle is likely to be witnessed. Fears are entertained that the forward division of the team will prove weak, but with such tried veterans as George Griffiths, Newton Jones, and Rosser to lead them, they will soon be licked into shape, and it is hoped will worthily uphold last year's high reputation in this department.
I A PLEASING PRESENTATION.
I A PLEASING PRESENTATION. By the kind invitation of their president (Sir Charles Philipps, Bart.,) 54 members of the Haverfordwest Cycle Club on Thursday afternoon rode over to Picton Caetle, the historic home of the Philipps family, and around which there cluster many romantic episodes of ancient times, dating back to the reign of William Rufus. | On arrival the party were welcomed by Sir Charles and Lady Philipps, and photographed by Professor Joergens. Afterwards the party divided, some to view the picturesque grounds and well-kept gardens, others the ornamental water, and beyond the Lake, recently con- structed, extending to the banks of the eastern Cleddau. All seemed to thoroughly enjoy the outing, and admired the pretty vistas of scenery obtainable here and there with the fine old Castle—continuously occupied since it was first built—in the background. About five o'clock tea was served in the new wing of the Castle, and an agreeable portion of the meal was a plentiful supply of grapes, which as they hung in the hothouses, had previously been the envy of not a few of the visitors. Amongst those present at tea were: Sir Charles and Lady Philipps, the Misses Philipps, Mr George Philipps, Dr G. Turner Phillips, of London, Rev. F. N. Colborne, Lady PhilippsP, hillips, of London, Rev. F. N. Colborne, Alderman T. James, Councillor J. Evans, Messrs R. T. P. Williams, J. Sweeney (captain), B. H. Munt (vice- captain), Ll. Brigstocke, W. Thomas, &c. After tea, Captain Sweeney said it now became his pleasing duty to thank Sir Charles and Lady Philipps for their splendid reception, and the excellent repast they had placed before them that evening. (Applause.) The members of the Club had received every kindness from Sir Charles and Lady Philipps. That was not the first occasion either, and they wished to express their gratitude by proposing a vote of thanks. (Applause.) Mr B. H. Munt (vice-captain) seconded the vote with great pleasure. He believed that day was Sir Charles Philipps' birthday, and their presence, he hoped, would make that day more happy. (Applause.) The Rev. F. N. Colborne said it was with exceeding great pleasure that he came out with the Club that day, and it gave him equal pleasure to support that vote of thanks. They were indebted to Sir Charles and Lady Philipps not only for the annual picnics during the last few years, but for other reasons. Sir Charles was president of their club this year. (Applause.) They might be ever so good and ever so respectable a body, but they would be unsightly without a head, and the name of Sir Charles Philipps tended to make it one of the best cycling clubs in the Principality. (Applause.) But the pleasures of the day were enhanced when they remembered it was Sir Charles Philipps' birthday. (Renewed applause.) It was a happy coincidence that they should be invited out that day, and that the day should be so beautifully fine. He offered Sir Charles on behalf of the Club their congratulations, and expressed the hope that he would be spared for many a long year of usefulness and happiness. (Applause.) They Aid not forget how he was assisting with every good cause. (Hear, hear.) His name was associated, too, with an endeavour to make the roads of the county better. They thought of him when they came to a crossways with a finger post, and when they came to a crossways without a finger post they thought of him still more. (Laughter and applause.) He had one more duty to perform, and that was to ask the acceptance by Sir Charles, in memory of his birthday, of a Badge of the Club, mounted and engraved with the date of the presentation and the occasion. They hoped he would accept that small present, not only for its intrinsic worth, but for the kindly feelings which prompted it. (Applause.) Sir Charles Philipps, in response, said he felt some difficulty to thank them sufficiently on behalf of Lady Philipps and himself. He wished also to thank them for their wishes of many happy returns of his birthday. When one got on in life he could not like those in younger years think of them as so many milestones. He was proud though to have his birthday that day, and to have the Haverfordwest Cycle Club to congratulate him upon it. (Applause). Lady Philipps, his children, and himself had done what they could with pleasure, and they were glad they had such a Club, which was a credit to the town. (Hear, hear). Reference had been made to his small efforts on behalf of the roads, and he might say that when they had been travelling in the Alps Lady Philipps had often looked out and said I wish we had such good roads in Pembrokeshire." (Hear, hear). He wanted to see the County Council cease letting the repair of their roads to the District Councils—who did it. in some cases as if they did not care about the job, and in others at any rate they did not do it even fairly well— and do the work themselves. (Applause). Some of those District Councils were also inclined to be rather nasty to the mother Council and say Do it yourselves." Well he hoped they would do it themselves, and that they would see such roads as would rejoice their hearts before long. (Applause). He was glad they had had a fine day, and he was glad to welcome them. Once more let him thank them most heartily and most sincerely for the kind way in which they had spoken of Lady Philipps, his family, and himself, and he wished them as a Club the greatest prosperity. (Applause). He thanked them very much for the beautiful present they had given him, one which he valued very highly, and he should not be at all surprised if Lady Philipps did not wear it quite as often as himself. (Laughter and applause). If he missed that beautiful badge he should have a strong suspicion of where to go to find it, and he was quite sure they would be as pleased to see her amongst them as they were himself. (Applause). That had been one of the most pleasant and memorable birthdays he had had for many a long year on account of their hearty good wishes. (Loud applause). The speeches then ended, and the party adjourned to the grounds, some to enjoy short walks, to visit the gardens and greenhouses, and others to chat in groups on the terrace. The return journey was started just before seven o'clock, but prior to the departure the members assembled in front of the Castle, gave hearty cheers for Sir Charles and Lady Philipps, who had made the time pass so pleasantly, and started for home with kindly thoughts of the generous hospitality of their President.
THE CORPORATION AT PIerONI…
THE CORPORATION AT PIerON CASTLE. On Friday night the Mayor and Mayoress (Sir Charles and Lady Philipps) entertained the Corporation and officials to dinner at Picton Castle. The party nambered 25, including 12 members of the Council, the Misses Philipps, Mr George Philipps, Dr. G. Burton Phillips, of London, the Town Clerk, Medical Officer, Borough Surveyor, Accountant, Organist, the High Sheriff, (Mr A. Rose), and the Clerk of the Peace, Mr W. Davies George. On arrival at the Castle, about 7.45, the guests were shown into one of the drawing rooms, and formally introduced to Lady PhilippSj and the Misses Philipps. Dinner was then announced in the dining room. It was a sumptuous repast, and was right royally enjoyed. The menu was:— I Consomme a la D'Extignac. Potage a la Flamande. Filets de Soles. Saumon Bouilli. See. Tartare. Chaufroid de Cotelcttes a la Aspic. Boudins de Bolaille a la Lucullus. Aloyau de Boeuf roti. Faisans et Perdreaux. Pommes a la Princesse. Boudins glace creme de Framboises. Huitres a la Diable. Les Glaces. After dinner, at which there were no toasts, the guests adjourned to the large hall, where coffee was served, and Mr Garton played some selections of music upon the organ. The Misses Philipps also sang, giving fine renderings of 11 Glory to Thee my God this night," and The Chorister, which were much appreciated. Just before leaving Alderman John James proposed a Tote of thanks to the Mayor and Mayoress for the kind way in which they had been entertained. Sir Charles expressed his pleasure at having had the presence of the Corpora- tion at Picton, and the party left, arriving home shortly before twelve, having spent a most enjoyable evening.
LOCAL HARVEST FESTIVALS.I
LOCAL HARVEST FESTIVALS. THE ALBANY CHURCH. I Harvest Thanksgiving services were held at this church on Sunday. Appropriate sermons were preached by the Rev. Owen Jacobs, morning and evening. The interior of the church had been very prettily decorated for the occasion with flowers, fruit, vegetables, and bread by members of the congregation. The communion table and pulpit were charming in appearance, most of the decorators' attention having been given to them. Col- lections were taken on behalf of the Infirmary. BETHESDA. Visitors to Bethesda Chapel on Sunday last, could not fail to be delighted with the Harvest decorations. There was an innate sense of beauty and the touch of a refined taste displayed in every part of the arrangements of the profuse and varied Iglfts of flowers, fruits, and vegetables. Three services were held, and in the evening the chapel was crowded. On Monday evening a sale of the fruits, &c., was held in the Schoolroom, after which a coffee supper was served. The total amount realised by the collections, together with the proceeds of the sale and supper was about 915. Great praise is due to the members of the congregation, and to outside friends, for the liberal gifts and kind help by which so large a sum has been raised for our infirmary. ST. MARTIN'S CHURCH. I There was a crowded congregation at this Church last evening, for the first service of the Harvest Festival. The interior of the Church had been tastefully decorated for the occasion. Prayers were sung by the Rev. C. P. Shipton, rector of Haroldston and Lambston, and an excellent sermon was preached by the Rev. D. Akrill Jones, rector of Prendergast. The music was of the usual high order. The services will be continued on Sunday, when special music will be rendered by the choir.
WHOLESALE WINDOW-SMASHING AT PEMBROKE DOCK. "A DISGRACE TO THE QUEEN'S UNIFORM." A t the Pembroke Dock Police Court on Saturday Frederick Cooper and Henry Green, privates in the South Wales Bordorers, were sentenced to one month's imprisonment in each of five charges of window- smashing. On the previous Monday night they ran through Dimond and Owen-street, Pembroke Dock, deliberately breaking the windows in seven different shops. The men were apparently under orders to proceed to India with a draft on the 10th inst., and it is thought that their object was to get imprisonment in order to avoid going abroad.—The Bench, in passing sentence, characterised them as being a disgrace to the Queen's uniform. On a charge of breaking a plate-glass window belonging to Mr Tallett, jeweller, they were committed for trial at the next Pembrokeshire Quarter Sessions. W. & A. Gilbey, who obtained the Gold Medal for the best cultivated Vineyard in France, have just supplied Her Majesty The Queen, H.R.H. The Prince of Wales, and H.R.H. The Duke of York with a large quantity of their Chfiteau Leudenne Claret, 1893. This same Wine can be obtained of their 2,850 Agents throughout the United Kingdom at 24/ per dozen.
! "BETWEEN YOU AND ME." 1
"BETWEEN YOU AND ME." On Saturday one of that class which has so long pestered townspeople with their un- pleasant attentions-I mean the begging and loafing tramp-was sent to prison for twenty- one days. After repeated requests it is something to know that the police are waking up to this nuisance in the town, and if they will give it attention we should soon be free from these unwelcome visitors who openly assert that this is their happy hunting! ground," the best town in the county for making a living without work. The magis- trates must second the efforts of the police by not being too merciful in their sentences- prison work and fare they entirely abhor. We cherish our peace and comfort in the streets and at home far more, and we have a right to be protected from imposition, insult, and fraud. The raid on the publicans continues. Two more were fined for Sunday trading at the Roose Sessions on Saturday. All these cases have one predominating feature, and that is the vast amount of hard swearing on both sides. The police spare no pains to get a conviction, and the persons summoned resist them to their utmost. Both versions cannot be correct, and it is evident there is perjury on one side. In the cases on Saturday there was manifestly an effort on the part of the police to draw the long bow, and in some details their evidence was proved incorrect. Those who dispense justice must not rely too completely upon police statements, and there is just now every need for them to be most careful in sifting their evidence. I have said recently that a few prosecutions for perjury would do an immense amount of good, and make people hesitate about their assertions on oath. The necessity of checking the baneful practice is all the more apparent by Saturday's cases. }fo While the glamour of Portfield Fair was at its height, and under the shadow of one of his beautiful organs, I had a chat with Mr Harry Studt about the money he has raised for Hospitals and similar institutions. His heart is in the work, and he has been the means of obtaining for charitable movements from L900 to L1,000 every year for the last twelve years. He is proud of the fact that he has been elected governor of the Llanelly Hospital for raising by two fetes £ 411, and for next year he has promised if the working men would double their subscriptions to reach X500, he would make it £ 1,000. These facts speak for themselves, and what more directly interests us is his desire to become a benefactor to our own Infirmary. He said to me: "I have told Dr. Brigstocke that I don't approve of all these vans being placed in front of the Infirmary, and if the town would give this piece of land I would go to the expense of having it laid out and would erect a nice wall, fencing, and gateway in front. I think it would be an improve- ment and credit to the town, and the patients could walk in it. Will you convey my offer to the people through your paper ?" I promised, and express the hope that the suggestion will bear some fruit. # Will the next Town Council be different to the present one ? This is a poser, but most people hope that it will be more businesslike, whatever its constitution. It would at the same time be idle to deny that there is a disposition amongst the burgesses to speak out in condemnation of the manner in which the Council have dallied with the water supply question. It is admitted on all hands that a better water scheme is important and necessary, and no matter how rigidly we economise we shall realise that it will be expensive. The constant.delays and repeated shelvings of a question fraught with so much concern to the health and comfort of the residents are irritating in the extreme, and it is the bounden duty of the Council to remedy the present unsatisfactory and short supply as speedily as possible. Far too long this water question has been a blot upon the administration of the town, and I hope the burgesses will make themselves heard this November in such an unmistakeable way that the Council shall be compelled to make up their minds to some decisive action. There are rumours that the Medical Officer has made an inspection of the proposed new water supply from the neighbourhood of Bolton Hill, foreshadowed at the last Council meeting, and that his report will not be favourable. This, however, is only con- jecture, as "the report will not be made known until the special Council meeting, which may be called early next week. I may add that the gentleman by whom the scheme has been prepared has the fullest confidence in it, both as regards quantity and quality. Those engaged on the Docks at Milford complain that they are being kept entirely in the dark as to what the operations on the Hakin side really are. Some declare that they are new buildings for the new Canadian line of steamers, and others that it is a new Fish Market. So far I have been unable to gather any authoritative information. # I am pleased to hear that this year's Carnival is to be the best yet held. The promoters are working assiduously, and the people generally are taking up the move- ment with enthusiasm, so that it will not be confined to any particular section. If fine weather prevails the event of to-morrow week will be of such a nature that the town may be proud of the gathering. Elsewhere the Carnival is looked upon as one of the events of the year, and it ought to be so here. It will if we all make up our minds for hearty wholesome enjoyment and spare a little towards the cost of working our most bene- ficent institution-the Infirmary. THE INVETERATE GOSSIP.

I Portfield Fair.
I Portfield Fair. The day of general enjoyment and hilarious fun associated with the Fair has come and gone. It is anticipated with delight by thousands, and favoured with fine weather the carnival provided endless diversions for the young people, while the middle-aged too entered into the spirit of the occasion with a merry light- heartedness truly surprising. Enjoyment and merriment reigned supreme; the enthusiasm of the participants seemed unbounded, and it is just as well for the piquant variety and unanimity of the Fair that many do not refrain from casting aside undue reserve or dispelling the scruples of a tender amour proprc for once in the course of a year. The town, usually quiet and sombre, wore a different aspect on Wednesday morning. The streets were alive with people, and tradesmen were busy. Groups of visitors on pleasure bent exchanged greetings, re-called the Fairs of other days, or were content to extract as much fun as possible out of the present by innocent jokes or amusing banter. Some people assert that it was the largest Fair yet held, and attributed its exceeding popularity to the bounteous season, to which nothing has been known to compare. And why not rejoice for one brief day ? Froissart has declared that we take our pleasures sadly, and there is some truth in his indictment, but for once this simile will not apply, and even he-grumpuous old man that he was-would have been disposed to modify such wholesale condemn- ation could he have seen the whole-hearted jubilations of the vast crowds which during day and night thronged St. Thomas' Green. The business portion of the Fair- that of the hiring of servants, and for which it was originated ages ago-is not nearly so extensive, or so prominent a feature as in days of yore. On the part of employers and servants there is a disposition to get through the details, and to "pass the shilling" as quickly as possible to allow of the remainder of the day for enjoyment. This is how the October gathering has been shorn of its pristine reputation, and why we have to-day one great pleasure Fair, with the hiring as a preface only to the proceedings, and not dully dominating the whole day's outing. Who can regret the change ? It is but meet and right that into the lives of those whose time is occupied on the soil there should come a ray of pleasure, a day when they may meet their friends in town, and in their companionship enter into all the furi of the fair." The itinerant showmen made ready in no unstinted fashion, and those enterprising entrepeneurs, Messrs Studt brought their beautiful gondolas, than which there are none more elegant travelling. With them are two mag nificent organs, made by Gavioli, of Paris, at great expense, and when the gondolas assume their airy up- and-down motions, these organs with the precision of a military band emit subdued music-operatic from Maritana, Rip Wan Winkle, &c., popular from the Geisha, Scotch, Welsh, and English airs. With Messrs Studt there is no common taste. A powerful road engine, on springs, and fitted with a dynamo, supplies the whole with electric light. Thousands of pounds must have been spent upon these modes of amusements, and their decorations are far above the average. Bizarre elegance in design, highly effective for daylight purposes, and ten times more so in the evening when the arc electric lamps, suspended from the tops of these gigantic roundabouts, cast their lurid glare, and bring into relief the many variegated colours, crystal glass devices, and various hidden beauties of the painter's art, with which they are studded and encircled. Truly this portion of the Fair was a dazzling picture, a gorgeous make-believe cf fairy- land. In addition to these-a host in themselves-there were swings, four sets of horse merry-go-rounds for juveniles, and children of a larger growth. The side shows consisted of two of Edison's phonographs, the cinematograph, a model colliery, the tattoed lady and gentleman, the fat lady, a biograph, a marvellous freak of nature, and two boxing saloons. Surely here was quite sufficient for the capacity of the nimble penny. But this was not all. There were the necessary con- comitants—stalls for sandwiches, biscuits, gingerbreads, nuts, fruit, cheap jewellery, cocoa-nut shies, shooting ranges, with of course "cheap Jack," and various other vendors. The marvellous part about it all was that everybody seemed to be doing good business. Life, movement, and colour, were visible everywhere. Some of the showmen's displays were novel, some artistic, not a few gaudy with flags and bunting, others begemmed into something rich and strange feasted the curious eye at every turn. As night wore on, the extremely gay scene was lit up with great shafts of electric light and the flare of the naptha lamps, the spaces intervening between shows, skies, and merry-go-rounds being a scramble of dodging, crushing, elbowing, impatient foot-passengers shouting and rejoicing, a few bored and brooding when they got entangled, but the great majority buoyant and pleasantly boisterous, lavishly showering confetti, or exultingly pouring miniature streams of cold water with unpleasant frequency into your face and down your neck. Thus did the people, in true holiday spirits, patronise Portfield Fair, the gayest time of all the year. The diversions were extended until all were tired, and it was a very late hour when the lights were put out, and all had wended homewards, full of memories and incidents of a right good time right jovially spent. THE BENEFIT FOR THE INFIRMARY. Messrs Studt's Benefit night, with their Gondolas on Thursday last, for the funds of the above Institution proved a financial success. The amount handed over to the Committee was X22 2s lOd, for which they are very grateful. On the previous day Mr Studt was shown over the Infirmary by the Matron and some of the Committee, and he expressed himself very pleased with all the arrangements.

The building of the new fishmarket on the Hakin side is to follow. FOOTBALL MATCH.—On Saturday Milford played Pembroke Dock Apprentices at Milford. The visitors were really out-played, Milford winning by eight goals to nil, six being scored in the first half. The apprentices played a plucky game right to the finish. Milford goal- keeper only handled the ball four times. All the home forward line played well, and Skeen at back was in fine form. It was a friendly easy game all through. Mr Purdy was referee.

Arthur Turner on They that sow in tears shall reap in joy." Collection and sale towards the renovation fund realised X3 5s 3d. A nucleus of about X20 is now in hand towards the needed sum of £ 100. THE FISH MARKET.—There have been good supplies of fish during the week, but trade has been indifferent. All the boats made good catches, and prices were good. Buyers lost a good deal on Thursday owing to the breakdown of the G.W.R. train, the fish not arriving in London until nine o'clock instead of four. On Monday eight steam trawlers were in, and the supply was large, but the fish was rather of a poor quality. On Friday night Messrs. East entertain their employees to a dinner and soiree at the Lord Nelson Hotel, Mr J. Green presiding. THE COUNTY SCHOOL.—The pupils of the school held a social evening in the school on Thursday last, when the following programme was gone through Pianoforte solo, Martha Thomas, recitation.

Sand brook domestic assize, Cromwell Lewis: duet (pianoforte), Martha Thomas and Chrissie McColl: recitation, Winnie Alford popular songs on the organ, Fred Rees; "The Chicken's Mistake," Ada Powell; duet, Winnie Alford and Chrissie McColl. The proceedings terminated with the Welsh National Anthem which unfortunately was sung in English. SUCCESS OF THE MILFORD HAVEN NATIONAL SCHOOL HEAD TEACHER.—Many of our readers will be glad -to- learn of the success which has attended Mr H. W. Heaviside, head master of the Milford Haven National School, in his recent matriculation at S. Davids College, Lampeter. Mr Heaviside during his eight years stay in Milford has raised the National School into a state of the very highest efficiency. The number of scholars attending the school when Mr Heaviside took charge was 40. To-day there are 260 scholars on the books. Mr Heaviside enjoyed the full confidence of the managers as a thoroughgoing hardworking master ,anditis with very great regret that they part with one who has served the school so faithfully. It is Mr Heaviside's intention to proceed with the College course in preparation for Holy Orders. We are sure we are but echoing the wishes of all who know Mr Heaviside when we wish him every success in his future career. We understand that it is intended to present Mr Heaviside with a small testimonial as a token of gratitude for his splendid work in the cause of elementary education in the town.

I .n TEMPLETON. LOCAL WEDDING.—The marriage of Miss Agnes Graham (Aggie), youngest daughter of Mr Robert Anderson, to Rev David Nicholas, Congregational minister, Pontypool. was celebrated at Templeton Congregational Church on the 29th ult. The officiating ministers were the Rev. H. Davies (pastor) and the Rev. Nestor Williams, Merryvale. At an early hour the villagers began to display bunting and to demonstrate in a signal manner the affection and good will felt towards the young bride, and old and young congregated together to wituess the auspicious event. The chapel was artificially decorated by the young ladies of the choir under the supervision of Miss Davies, Merryvale. The entrance from gateway to door was carpeted and the aisles strewn with flowers. Punctually at 9.30 the wedding party began to assemble at the chapel. Shortly after the firing of guns announced the arrival of the bride, who was accompanied by her father and Mr and Mrs Jenkins (uncle and aunt of the bride), was met at the altar by the bridegroom, who was attended by the Rev. H. Rees and Rev. J. Davies. The bride looked charming gowned in ivory silk, trimmed with chiffon and Irish lace, with hat to match. She carried a bouquet and wore a diamond and pearl bracelet, gifts of the bridegroom. The register was signed by Rev. H. Rees and Miss Jennie Anderson (sister of bride). Before and after the service Miss Bessie Gay R.A.M. played selections on the organ. The bridal hymns were sung by the choir. Immediately after the marriage ceremony Mr David Rees (deacon and superintendent) came forward and in complimentary terms presented the bride on behalf of the church with a silver gipsy kettle on stand and silver sugar tongs suitably inscribed in recog- nition of valuable services as organist and teacher. Mr H. ILvies on behalf of the school presented a richly embossed silver plated and glass fruit stand. The bride- groom, on behalf of the bride, gratefully acknowledged the valuable gifts, and said they coald never forget the loyalty displayed or the sterling hearts that accompanied their congratulations on that ever memorable occasion. During the rendering of the wedding march by the accomplished organist the happy pair left the chapel, and outside they were deluged with rice and symbols of good luck. Amidst the firing of guns and great rejoicings the wedding party arrived at the bride's home where a number of guests were entertained at luncheon by Mr and Mrs Anderson. The bride's home presents were valuable and choice, an unique feature being that, in addition to the public presents, nearly every inhabitant has given a personal remembrance. Mrs Nicholas is pleased at this distinction and cherish them not as parting gifts but as bonds that will ever firmly bind her to the loving and genuine friends of her native village and neighbourhood. Mr and Mrs Nicholas left for Mumbles en j'outc for Devon where the honey- moon will be spent.
LARGE STEAMSHIP AT MILFORD…
LARGE STEAMSHIP AT MILFORD HAVEN. The fine steamship, "City of Calcutta," entered Milford harbour on Wednesday last in tow of the J. W. Headley and the steam trawler Camelia. It appeara that the "City of Calcutta." while proceeding from London to Glasgow in ballast had the misfortune to break the tail end of her shaft, and thus became disabled. After lyiag in the harbour for several days, she was on Friday fasten into the dry dock where she was temporally repaired. The City of Calcutta carries a very large crew, tbe greater part of whom were compoeed of Lascars. There was an opportunity afforded on Sunday of viewing the ship, which was very largely taken advantage of.

I NEYLAND CHURCH MISSION. I HARVEST THANKSGIVING SERVICE. The first of the above services was held in the National Schoolroom, on Thursday, October 6th, when a special sermon was preached by the Rev. E. J. Howells, B.A., of Milford, the following clergy also took part in the service :—Rev. L. H. Rumsey, M.A., vicar of Llanstad- well; Rev. W. F. Davies, B.A., curate of Llanstadwell; and the Rev. Mr Evans, curate of St. John's, Pembroke Dock. The service was very bright and hearty throughout, the room being crowded by an appreciative congregation. On Sunday morning (the first morning service held in the Mission Room), the Vicar officiated and preached a suitable sermon. In the afternoon the Rev. Silas Phillips, B.A., rector of St. John's, Pembroke Dock, addressed the children of the Sunday School, and the same gentleman also preached at the evening service when the Harvest Festival was continued, and the room was again filled to its utmost limits. The congregation could not fail to be struck with the excellent manner in which the choir performed their part of the services, the expressive rendering of the hymns and the anthem being particularly pleasing. The greatest credit is due to the choirmaster (Mr T. E. Williams), and the organist (Miss Gwen Griffiths), for the great pains they have taken in training the children, the services of both being given voluntarily. The room was most tastefully decorated for the servioes, and there was an abundant show of fruit, flowers, and vegetables. A finely executed text, the work of Mr Lyndon Nicholls, was much admired. The collections-to which was added the amount realised bv the sale of fruit &-e-were for the Assistant Clergy Fund, the net receipts being over S7. We are glad to be in a position to say that the contract for the erection of the New Church will be placed almost immediately. 1. m
NEYLAND NOTES. A few of the principal Liberals, seeing the need for a more vigorous Liberalism in the town are forming an executive committee to call a full meeting of all who have the welfare of Radicalism at heart to arrange a more vigorous plan of campaign for the future. This Is most desirable, and I wish their efforts every success. On Saturday there was a demonstration of the Manchester Unity of Oddfellows, headed by the Pembroke town band, and the beautiful silk banner, bearing the name of the lodge, the arms of the order, and a picture of the Good Samaritan. This was a source of attraction in the town, where the Loyal Frederick Order, established 14 years ago, has a membership of 240, and a valuation of over £ 700. After perambulating the town the processionists went to divine service at the Baptist Chapel, where an impressive sermon on Gather up the fragments (John 6c 12v) was preached by the Rev. B. C. Evans. Nurse Barter, one of the Queen's nurses, is leaving Neyland, being partially restored to health from her recent aocident, and is going on a visit home. HOT place is taken pro tem by nurse Green, who has been some time at Marloes. Miss Barter takes with her the hearty good wishes of Neyland people. One of the swords borne in the Oddfellows' procession on Saturday, has an interesting history. It is the property of Mr Michael George Rice, of Great Eastern Terrace, Neyland, who was one of those enthusiastic volunteers who, incensed by the Armenian atrocities, enlisted for active service against the Turks in the late Greco-Turkish war. Coming across the plains of Thessaly under fire of the Turks, his officer, Captain Birch, was shot in the leg. Rice managed to carry his captain through the thick of the fire, and hand him over to the ambulance, but his sword was lost. Some time after the sword was found by Rice, who took care of it through the cam?ign, and handed it to his captain at Athens. Captain Burch, however, presented Mr Rice with the sword at a souvenir of the war, and as a keep-sake by which hi) eould remember how he saved his captain's life. Surgeow-Major Rice was away three months, going through the whole campaign, and he can tell some stirring incidents of the war. His opinions are worth recording. He thinks the Greeks are good fighters, but they want a Sirdar. The Turks out-generalled and out. numbered them, but he does not consider their fighting honourable. He praises the Efzones, a mountain tribe 4,500 strong, for splendid fighting, and says they are much like our Highlanders in dress and appearance. The whole campaign for the Greeks was a set of blunders, and in the night from Larissa, they were fired on by their own cavalry, and thrown into a terrible panio in the dark of night. Edhem Pasha hated the foreign Legion, 1,500 strong, and threatened, if he caught them, to hang every one. < ot One Greek captain, he tells me, came on to the field coolly smoking a cigarette to see if the English volunteers were properly quartered, and he was shot through the back by a stray bullet. His dying wish was that he should be buried by the English on the hills where he fought. ARGUS."
