Back From Khartoum. HOME COMING OF THE GRENA-, DIER GUARDS. AN ENTHUSIASTIC RECEPTION, i Mists hung white and dense on Southampton water on Thursday morning when a little after six o'clock the harbour tug boat put out to meet the Dilwara which had been lying quietly at anchor in "the river" since an hour or 80 after midnight. News of the transport's approach was te?graphedwhcn she passed Hurst Castle flore one o'clock, but at that hour there was no berth vacant for her in the Empress Dock, and it was much better in any case that she should lie outside where the troops would at least have fresh air and freedom from disturbing sounds until daylight. The early arrival waa fortunate as it was then clear enough for all steering lights to be seen, but with dawn came the mists rolling in so densely that the most skilful pilot would hardly have ventured to feel the way in through the Solent's western entrance. Seeing anything enveloped in that dense fog was almost impossible. It cleared a little before the tugboat had gone far down Southampton Water, and those on board were presently able to make out a great grey mass amid the lighter grey of its surroundings. This was the Dilwara under way, but moving so slowly and silently that she might have been adrift on the tide. Captain Pitt, R.N., the Admiralty director of transports, had invited some friends of home- coming officers to accompany him on board the tug. Thus Lord Loch and General Fred Marshall were able to welcome their sons an hour before the transport entered Southampton Dock. Lord Caven, whose son is regi- mental adjutant of the Grenadiers, was also of the party which boarded the Dilwara with Captain Pitt in South- ampton Water. As she held on her slow course up the Crzur another huge troopship of the British India fleet came steaming down. The outward bound Dunera had a large draft of the Dorset Regiment and other details on board, including a crew of blue-jackets for one of her Majesty's ships in the Mediterranean. Those who had anticipated a stirring spectacle and an exchange of vociferous greetings between the linesmen bound for foreign service and Guards fresh from the battlefield were disappointed. There are regulations that forbid cheering on board a troopship while she is being navi- gated in or out of a narrow harbour, and they were apparently in force at that moment. No cheers rolled across the calm grey water though soldiers crowded the decks of each transport. The sister ships saluted each other gravely by dipping their ensigns as they met and greetings were waved but that was all. HAPPY MEETINGS. Half-an-hour later the Dilwara with a tug on each side was being towed into Southampton Docks, where many thousands of people had assembled on the piers and wharves to cheer lustily as they passed. Still, the home- coming troops could not respond to this fervent welcome, an order having been passed for strict silence to be preserved, so that the commands of navigating officers might be heard. It was a little disheartening, perhaps, for the people who hailed the heroes so enthusiastically to be met with no answering cheers but this apparently did not check the cordiality of a demonstration that was carried on from wharf to wharf as the Dilwara moved towards her berth in the Empress Dock. There all arrangements for disembarkation were in the hands of Colonel Stackpoole, D.A.A.G. of the Southern District, and in order that everything might be conducted with due regard for military routine the gates were shut against curious sightseers, only the friends of those on board being admitted to the landing place. General Davis, who commands the Southern District, was prevented by an accident from being present, and the official reception on his behalf fell therefore to General McGregor Stewart, who was accompanied by Colonel Auld, Assistant Adjutant-General of the District Staff. Before his arrival several ladies had passed the ship's gangway, and given to husbands, sons, or brothers a welcome that must have been sweet compensation for all the hardships they have gone through. At any rate the young officers seemed so happy in this meeting that they shook off the seriousness which responsibility engenders even in the lightest-h3arted subaltern on active service, and became boys again for a time. The Dilwara brought no sick or seriously wounded officers. Lieutenant Gascoyne, Battalion Adjutant of the Grenadier Guards, showed trace of lameness, but this was the result of an old accident which did not incapacitate him from going through the campaign, and he had almost forgotten it in the excitement of stirring events until another wrench brought back a touch of the lameness again on the home- wart voyage. Among the rank and file, however, there were many invalids, the Grenadier Guards having thirty-seven on the sick list for Xetley Hospital. In addition to these there were two men invalided from the Northumberland Fusiliers, four from the Warwick, two from the Seaforth Highlanders,, two from the Cameron Highlanders, five from the Royal Welsh Fusiliers. Altogether seventy-two sick men were on board the Dilwara when she left Alexandria, but many of these, including the only man of the 21st Lancers, who had been invalided home unwounded, derived so much benefit from the sea voyage that they will be fit to rejoin their regiments or depots immediately. The Grenadier Guards still had on board an efficient strength of 850 hale men. With them came twenty-nine officers, two having been left behind for temporary duty in Egypt. A VEXATIOUS DELAY. Colonel Hatton, as senior officer, had command not only of his battalion, but of all troops on board. Among these were 101 gunners of the 37th Field Battery, who did such excellent service at Omdurman with the howitzers. Major Elmslie commanding the battery, Lieutenant Gemmell, and Lieutenant Smith were the recipients of many flattering congratulations from distinguished soldiers who went on board the Dilwara on Thursday. The Mahdi's tomb was demolished by Lyddite shells from this battery, and in recognition of its conspicuous services the Sirdar presented to Major Elmslie the tomb's crescent finial, Et this trophy was lost on the voyage down the Nile. The Grenadiers have also returned without the most valuable trophies that fell to their share after Omdurman was captured, but many of the men still retain spears, shields, and swords taken on the battlefield, and evidently cherish them as momentous of an event the like of which they will never take part in again. One spear is so much prized that it is used as a staff for the colour of the Queen's company. For a long time nobody was allowed to leave the ShIP except fatigue parties, but about half-past eight the disembarkation began and the hundreds of men tiled out in rapid succession, bearing articles of personal kit to be deposited in the shed alongside. Then the arms and reserve kit were handed out to be passed along the companies when they stood in double lines facing inwards until each weapon and knapsack had reached its proper owner. All this was accomplished with remarkable celerity, the outcome of perfect organization. But then celerity, hitch for which neither Col. Stackpoole nor Col. came a Hatton was responsible. Custom House authorities were the cause of this delay. They insisted on a close scrutiny of baggage, in which apparently they suspected to find untold wealth of contraband goods. How Tommy is to get such things on a campaign it would puzzle anybody to say. "Do they think we have got the Khalifa's millions with us?" asked one officer in his impatience. It certainly seems an absurd and vexatious ordeal to inflict on soldiers when they return from active service. Kit bags had to be examined, and the covers of heavy baggage broken open to satisfy the Customs officers that a few hundreds of Egyptian cigarettes were not con- cealed somewhere. All this entailed iruch trouble and delay for nothing, and if Tommy had brought home some cigarettes for distribution as presents among his friends or for personal consumption is there a taxpayer in the land who would have grudged him or any soldier similarly situated that small comfort? Mr Dickson, dock superintendent of the S. W. Ibihvay Company had ml(le all arrangements for getting the troops off by special trains within an hour of their arrival. By that time most of the heavy baggage was disembarked, and there was nothing to keep the Grenadier Guard J at Southamp- ton after ten o'clock, but the Custom House examination, which took so long that it wauted only twenty minutes to one when thp first special train was ready to start. As this steamed away from the shed cheers were raised by crowds gathered outside. Ganuers of the :3ït.h Bitfcery who had already hoisted their howitzers out of the hold and parked them with two brass cannon captured from the'Dervishes, joined in this demonstration, but it was only a faint forecast of the more enthusiastic greeting that awaited the Guards in London. A COMRADES WELCOME. I At many stations along the line people had gathered in dense masses, but the train sped past them so rapidly that they had hardly time to cheer before it was out of hearing. From Winchester depot soldiers of the Rifle Brigade had turned out to line a hill and wave signals of welcome as the train went by. At Pirbright the Cold- stream Guards, encamped there for musketry training, came in a body to the canal banks, aud gave such a welcome home as only soldiers can give to their comrades. Fearing that their cheers and cordial greetings might not be heard, they had brought with them a long placard, bearing in bold capitals the words Well done, Grenadiers Weleome Home." This was supplemented by a signaller who stauding on a tall pyramid of hay trusses, wagged in the Morse code a menage that expressed similar sentiments with more characteristic force. Wimbledon offered another sort of welcome but equally flattering, and as the train neared London its coming was the signal for extraordinary demonstrations. Garden walls overlooking the railway, windows and even parapets were crowded with sight- seers, many of whom had improvised banners of motiev colours and materials, that suggested the standards carried by a Dervish army. Then the runuing accom- paniment of cheers swelled suddenly into a mightier volume as the train slackened speed and stopped beside the crowded platform at Waterloo. WAITING AT WATERLOO. in this station the people had begun to assemble before eight o'clock, and hour after hour the crowd grew denser until it filled the yard and about blocked every thorough- fare leadiug thither. Mr White, traffic superiuteudent ] of the line, made all possible arrangements to meet this pressure, but nothing could have kept it within bounds if the crowd itself had not been actuated by a desire to preserve order. A simple barrier sufficed at first to keep clear a space that was reserved for troops to form up in, a.nd on one side of this masses of people, packed so closely together that they could scarcely move, waited patiently from morning until afternoon listening to the music of massed bauds. Waea th8 train was signalled, however, I these masses b.-gan to :;urg.} with excitement, and as the strains of The Conquering Hero comes" rose above the cheers, a sudden forward movement broke down that barrier as if it hau been no mora taau matchwood, and the police would iitivo DCBU quite overpowered but for their promptness* in closing the i'ou gates. On the platform were General Svvaine, whose son was among the home-coming officers, Colonel Flu,Iyer, in tmporary command of the Home District, Col. Ivor Herbert Assistant Adj utaut-Geueral Colonel Ward, Colonel E vre Crabbe, Major the Hon. J. C. St. Aubyn and Lady Edith St. Auhyn, Mrs Leigh, the Hon. Mrs Cavendish, a.11 I many other ladies with officers of the Brigade of Guards. Twenty minutes after the first train had arrived, a second was signalled, and then, the battalion being complete: Colonel Hatton gave the command to form fours in column of route. The puzzle then was to find a way for troops through the human masses that had grown denser and denser. The massed ba nds had to be escorted by police, whose efforts succeeded so far that the head of the column could begin to move. They were marching to a re-imentiil air, The Return of the Guards," but nobody a few yards from the bands could hear a note. The strains were drowned by an outburst of cheering from thousands of throats, and with this stirring welcome the Guardsmen moved towards York-road. °Eag"er to get near them people made a great rush, before which the stout iron railings that separated two roads outside Waterloo Station were borne down like reeds. How many people went down in that rush or whether any sustained serious injuries it was impossible to see for the crowd closed in again immediately. Along York-road more space was kept for the march of the troops whose scarlet service frocks and khaki helmets made a gleam of colour among the sombre masses. Thence along the I whole way by Westminster Bridge to Great George- street thousands upon thousands of people welcomed the Grenadiers with enthusiastic cheers. ROYAL INSPECTION AT THE BARRACKS. At Wellington Barracks the Duke of Cambridge, as Colonel-in-Cbief of the Guards, was waiting to receive Colonel Hatton and his battalion. Many old officers of the Brigade were also present and groups of ladies filled every window of the quarters that overlook the gateway leading from Birdcage-walk when the regiment had marched in, and formed three sides of a square. The Duke of Cambridge made a brief inspection, followed by a short speech, in which he expressed high appreciation of the work done by the Grenadiers. They were, he said, a credit to the army, and he was specially pleased with their appearance. They looked fit to go anywhere and do anything. Three hearty cheers were then given for the Duke, Colonel Hatton leading, and the men responding heartily while they lifted their helmets on the muzzles of their rifles. In those cheers one heard the thrill of deep feeling, that had been stirred by such a demonstration as British soldiers have seldom been made the objects of on their return from a victorious campaign. --Daily News.
SPECIAL HOME READINGS. ( SERIES III.—YOUR CHILDREN. I No matter whether physical or mental labour is j meant, or even if, as is too often the case in these j days of fierce struggle for existence, an exeess of I either has to be accomplished, Dr Tibbies' Vi-Cocoa will prove of inestimable service. The jadedness and tiredness which characterises thousands of young men and women of the present day too often resolves itself into a question of diet. Children and young persons do not require so much food as nourishment, and a partially digested Food-bever- age, such as Dr Tibbies' Vi-Cocoa, gives strength, stamina, and builds up and strengthens the tissues. The disinclination for further effort and exertion so often experienced will become a thing of the past: and heat in summer, and cold in winter, and all the bleak uncertainties of our trying climate can be faced with Dr Tibbies' Vi-Cocoa, which has concen- trated powers of nutriment, and imparts stamina and staying powers, adds to powers of endurance, and enables those who use it to undergo greater physical exertion and fatigue. The British Medical Journal" says: Vi-Cocoa is a very palatable bevarage of great stimulating and sustaining properties." The "Lancet" says: Vi-Cocoa is in the front rank of really valuable foods." We say that for breakfast and supper there is nothing to equal Dr Tibbies' Vi-Cocoa. Merit, and merit alone, is what we claim for Dr Tibbies' Vi-Cocoa, and we are prepared to send to any reader who names the Milford Haven Telegraph a dainty sample tin of Dr Tibbies' Vi-Cocoa free and post-paid. There is no magic in all this. It is a plain, honest, straightforward offer. It is done to introduce the merits of Vi-Cocoa into every home. Dr Tibbies' Vi-Cocoa, as a concentrated form of nourishment and vitality, is invaluable nay, more than this for all who wish to face the strife and battle of life with greater endurance and more sustained exertion, it is absolutely indispensable. Dr Tibbies' Vi-Cocoa, 6d., 9d., and 18. 6d. It can be obtained from all chemists, grocers, and stores, or from 60, 61 and 62, Bunhill Row, London, E.C.
NARBERTH BOARD OF GUARDIANS. The fortnightly meeting of the Board of Guardians was held in the Board Roon: of the Workhouse, on Monday, October 3rd, at 10.30. The chair was taken by Mr R. H. Buckby and the vice-chair by Mr John Roberts. There was a large attendance of guardians, amongst those present being Mr W. Arthur Glencross (Begelly Bottom), Mr John Morgan, Mr Thomas Morgan, Mr Griffith Thomas, Mr John Richard Lewis, Mr John Thomas, Mr Thomas John, Mr John Lloyd, Mr John Beynon, Mr David Llewellyn, Mr Benjamin James, Mr David Humphreys, Mr George Bateman, Mr Henry Phillips, Mr Benjamin Eynon, Mr Georgs Griffiths, Mr Isaac Tribe, Mr William Jermin, Mr Albert T. Roberts, Mr Thomas Lewis, Mr Thomas George Phelps, Mr John Davies, Mr William Howells, Mr Edwin James, Mr John Williams, Mr Benjamin John, Mr Levi Davies, Mr John James, Mr Richard Griffiths. It was reported that there were 40 inmates in the Workhouse, as against 76 on the same day last year. There are 36 in the Carmarthen Asylum and 3 under industrial training, 621 in receipt of out-door relief, a decrease on the latter of 52 on the cor- responding week of last year. The amount of weekly relief (out door) is zC73 12s., as compared with 977 13s. for the corresponding week last vear. It was reported that a tramp received into the Union on Sunday night and put into the garden to work had absconded. Mr Studt had sent to the Union an invitation to such of the inmates as would like to go and enjoy themselves on the gondolas for an hour or so, and several availed themselves of his kindness. He also made a present to each of them, and sent the same to those who could not go. Mr North likewise gave them a cocoanut fach. Miss M. S. Clark and Miss A. D. Clark, of Robes- ton Wathen, had visited the house, and brought for the inmates five pols of jam and a bag of apples. Mrs D. E. Williams, of Lampeter, had also visited the house, and had given them 23 lbs. of cake. These were thanked for their kind remembrances. The out-door relief lists were revised, and orders for contributions were made on all the overseers to meet expenses in connection with the maintenance of the poor, &c. A contract had been done by one Mr Rees to lay on pipes to the Union for a water supply, and it was found that owing to some fault in the specifications, the contract could not be carried out. After some stroug remarks from the Chairman and other guardians, further consideration of the matter was postponed for a fortnight, Mr Rees and the inspector to place in writing what would be required to make the job a good one, with the costs thereof. The Assistant Overseer of Marros and Pendine gave notice of resignation of his office. It was notified that Langan Hamlet had not paid in the "call" made upon them, and that Mr Las- celles had taken proceedings against them for "calls" which should have been paid to the late Highway Board. Whilst the water pipes were being laid on, a charge of Is a day was made for carting all necessary water to the Union.
