SCIIOLASTI(' SUCCESS.-Master W. H. Thomas, son of Mr J Thomas, of the Rising Sun," Bar- n,, Sun, Bar- net (grandson of Mr W. Thomas, Cotts Farm, Little Haven), and a former pupil at Silesia College, has succeeded in passing a very stiff examination in connection with the College of Preceptors. Master Thomas has been placed very high in the honours division, which we understand is most unusual in the case of a youth only 15 years of age. The examination will enable him to enter at once on his studies at the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, which profession he has chosen. PROMOTION FOR LIEWT. W. H. GEORGE.— Promotion has come rapidly for Lieut. W. H. George. It will be remembered that this young officer, who com- menced as a private in the Haverfordwest volunteers, volunteered for the front in February last and became attached to the Worcesters. He left for South Africa on the 1st of March, and on his arrival at once got into the thick of the fighting. His duties con- sisted principally in guarding convoys and in several en- gagements with the enemy he exhibited considerable dash and ability, and on one occasion earned the specific praise of his general. As a result of his general conduct he is now promoted to the rank of full Lieutenant, and, on behalf of our readers, we offer him our warm con- gratulatious on his promotion.
