POWlS REYNOLDS.— We regret to announce the somewhat sudden, and to Haver- fordwest people, quite unexpected death, of Mr T. Powis Reynolds, architect. Mr Reynolds, who was in his 51th j year, it will be remembered went to Milford to reside some 12 months ago, having been appointed" Surveyor to the Milford Urban District Council. Although never very successful in business Mr Reynolds possessed great abilities as an architect, indeed people said it was his extreme regard for punctilio which prevented him acquiring considerable reputation in his profession. He was greatly loved and esteemed by his friends and acquaintances, and his genial mauner made him a great favourite in Milford Haven. LOCAL EFFORT FOR THE WIDOW AND ORPHAN FUND.—A very simple yet praiseworthy effort to raise subscriptions for the Widow and Orphan Fund of our soldiers in the Transvaal War was made on Guy Fawkes night, when a committee of children conceived the idea of collecting a sum of money with which to purchase fireworks, which were afterwards let off in a field in Barn Street, a small charge for admission being made. By this means the very useful sum of £ 1 Is was raised, and will be handed to the fund which Col. Quirk is organising for the same purpose. The following girls and boys composed the committee:—Misses GWeli Williams and Mary Wilson, and Messrs Edgar Williams. Reginald Morgan, Bertie Evans. Master R. H. Williams collected the gate money. Mr W. R. Morgan superintended the proceedings.
