GWILYM EVANS' QUININE BITTERS. Indigestion, in its different forms, has many symptoms, e.g., a dry Cough, sick headaches, foul breath, furred tongue, bitter taste, heartburn, cramp, pain in the stomach, flatulence, frequent sighing, a sense of fullness, and oppressions after eating, and the like. All may be removed by using GWILYM EVANS' QUININE BITTERS. GWILYM EVANS' QUININE BITTERS. GWILYM EVANS' QUININE BITTERS. A sense of indisposition to exertion, loss of strength, faintness, languor, and de- pression of spirits are classed under the common name of debility. This disease, from which so many suffer in some of its various forms, is really the result of some defect in the blood, its want of tone and vitality. Gwilym Evans' Quinine Bitters, a purely vegetable tonic medicine, gives tone to the blood, new life to the system, and strength to the debilitated.

DEATH OF MR SAMUEL WESTON.—We regret to announce the death, which took place on Thursday last, of Mr Samuel Weston, Rock House, Salutation Square. The deceased who was 80 years of age, had been ill but a few days, having been present at Divine service in Prendergast church on the previous Sunday. He was a constant attendant at the services in the church, of which he was for over six years warden. Mr Weston was formerly master of the union workhouse at Leicester, and since he came to Haverfordwest he earned for himself the respect and esteem of all who knew him. He was buried u "ionday iu Prendergast churchyard. The burial service was fully choral. Rev. D. Akrill Jones, who Was a great fneucl of deceased, officiated at the graveside, and on Sunday made a touching reference to his demise. "LEDGE-SIGNIXO CRUSADE IN HAVERFORD- WEST. Services in connection with the Twentieth Century Pledge Signing Crnsade were held in the Albany, Bethesda, and tabernacle Chapels on Sunday last, and were addressed by the organiser, Rev. William Mottram, of London. ihe services were largely attended, particularly the united service in Bethesda in the afternoon, when Revs; O. D. Campbell, Owen Jacobs, W. Mendus, and F. 1\. Colborne occupied seats on the platform. Rev. Mr Mottram spoke in a simple and impressive style, which strongly appealed to his youthful hearers. He drove home morals to their minds by affecting stories, and his address was listened to with the greatest interest. He took occasion to warn boys, not only against touching alcohol, which "defaced the beauty of the human countenance, but also against smoking. Boys should never smoke till they were 21. Three pipes a day might not hurt a full grown man, but the smoking of cigarettes and tobacco seriously inj ured the brain powers of a boy. Thank God, girls were as yet pretty safe on that score, but boys should buy sweets and chocolates, which would not hurt them, instead of cigarettes which would." Another service was held in the evening, after which Rev. Mr Mottram addressed a large open-air gathering in Salutation Square, and made a powerful appeal in the cause of total abstinence. Services are being held by Mr Mottram during the week i n the country districts.

Whooping Cough always a serious complaint with children is now raging throughout the country leaving in its trail a grim record of suffering and death, and hither- to no remedy seems to have had any effect against its Recently, however, we have had some glowing account. of a new medicine discovered and prepared by the Savanah Medicine Company, who have adopted for it the distinctive name of Savanaline. It is without doubt the best and only remedy for Whooping Cough, Croup, and kindred complaints, and no time should be lost in giving this wonderful remedy a trial as delays are proverbially dangersus, and never more so than in these scourges of childhood when often a few doses given in time will spare weeks of suffering.

ARTHUR TURNER.•—A coffee supper, followed by a meeting representative of the Church and congregation ,vas held at the Wesleyan Chapel on Monday evening, August 26th, to bid adieu to Mr and Mrs J. A. Turner on their leaving the Circuit, a large number being present. Following the opening exercises addresses were given by Mr W. J. Griffiths, representing the Wesley Guild Mr John Walters, for the Sunday School, and Mr William Farrow on behalf of the Church and Sunday School. The presentations were then made consisting of a music cabinet to Mrs Turner, and a purse of t7 I Is to the Rev. J. A. Turner. Mr Turner in responding thanked all for the kindness shown towards them not only that evening but during their sojourn amongst them. He expressed regret at his departure from the town and trusted that if, during his ministry in the district, he had caused offence [ to any, all would be forgiven and forgotten. In con- clusion, and in bidding farewell, he wished them and the incoming minister, Rev. Arthur Holland, every prosperity and much bles.ing jn their future work. During the meeting, solos, duets, etc., were rendered whilst a presentation was also made to Mr D. Adams, of a handsome clock on the occasion of his marriage. The proceeds of the coffee suppep were for the Furnishing Fund. THE DOCKS COMPANY.—The ordinary half-yearly general meeting of the Milford Docks Company was held on Monday week at No. 63, Cornhill, London.—Mr C. E. Newbon, ehajrman, in proposing the adoption of the report (which has already been published) stated that there was again an increase in the Ijalf- year's profits of nearly 1,500. It was a curious fact that for the last six years the profits had advanced at the same rate of X 1, 000 a year. If the same rate were maintained for the present half-year it would give them 32s. 8d. for the year, or 5 per cent. on the market price, against 28s. 6d. for 1900. Owing to the strike at Grimsby, the fishing prospects for the half-year were likely to show a. report. With regard to the Freystrop Colliery, it was hoped that coal would very soon be once again brought to the surface. Alluding to the Berehaven scheme, he had come to the conclusion that whatever it had to recommend it was posssessed by Milford to a great extent without its drawbacks and dis- advantages. It wag said that the Great Western wanted it to feed Fishguard. So doubt, they would be pleased to take a new traffic if it came. But if it would cost possibly an extra million beyond their present commitments to fit Fishguard for the direct American traffic, would they undertake the work, with Milford and its monopoly at their door ? Everything pointed to Miiford being the proper port, yet Milford was pointed at because its original object had not been obtained. It was said that only i or 2 per cent. of the general passengers landed at Queenstown, and the inference was that passengers preferred to go on to Liverpool or tft Southampton to getting off the steamer at the earliest possible moment. As to the desires of the passengers, would the Cunard or the White Star Line give them an opportunity of testing the question ? IVould they put up at their New York offices and on their steamers a notice to the effect that upon 50 passengers expressing a desire to land at Milford the steamer would call at that port, and that there would bo a special Great Western train in waiting to receive them ? If the passengers did not respond, there would then be ground's for assuming that they preferred to go up to Liverpool and down agtun to T-()nqQu at the loss of so much time.—Mr Thomas Wood seconded, and the report was adopted without discussion.
FORTHCOMING- GREAT TEMPER- I ANCE MISSION IN MILFORD HAVEN. I The Vicar of Milford Haven, pre.^ljin^ on Sunday last in the Parish Church, announced that the winter Work would be inaugurated with a Temperance Mission in con nection with the Church of England Temperance Society.

The Vicar has issued an invi- tation to the different Temperance organisations in the town asking for their sympathy and co-operq,tion. A meeting held at S. Peter's last Sunday evening brought together deputations from the Rechabite Tent and the British Women's Temperance Society. With such a rallying of foroas it is hoped that the mission will succeed in doing something towards raising the tone of public opinion in reference to the increasing evil of intemper- ance. The mission will commence on Saturday, Sept. 28th, and end on Sunday, October 6th. The meetings will be held in the Drill Hall.

A LEAMINGTON TRAGEDY.—A sad tragedy is reported from Leamington, where the wife of Mr Thomas C. Lockyer, a. local journalist, on Sunday morning murdered her six months old child by cutting its throat, the head being practically severed from the body. Mrs Lockyer had been depressed for some time, and there can be no doubt that a sudden frenzy prompted her to commit the terrible deed. She informed her neighbours of what she had done, and her husband, who was attend- ing service in chapel at the time, was hastily summoned home. Mrs Lockyer is now in custody. The Glen-Spey Distillery, situated in the linest Whisky producing District of Scotland, is the property of W & A Gilbey. This Whisky is made entirely from home-grown Barley and is kept absolutely unblended in His M ajesty's Bonded Warehouse to mature, and sold by W & A Gilbey's t age nts in every town at 38 6d per bottle. 254
CONTRACT ARRESTS SERIOUS CHARGES AGAINST PEMBROKESHIRE MEN. Before Mr. De Rutzen at Bow-street Police-court on Tuesday the two Pembrokeshire magistrates, Messrs. Coram and James, answered to their bail, and were placed again in the dock, together with Corporal Davies, of the Army Service Corps, Pembroke Dock, to answer a charge of conspiring to defraud the War Office of X180 7s 7d. in June of last year. Prisoners were defended by Mr. Muir as before: Mr. Bodkin again prosecuted on behalf of the Treasury. Captain Grier was recalled, and, in answer to Mr. Bodkin, said it was Davies's duty to go through the accounts and see that the charges were properly made and accurately corresponded with the carrier's notes. He would check the amounts charged, and ascertain whether they were in accordance with the terms of the contract. If there were any discrepancies it was Davies's duty to bring the matter to his (Captain Grier's) notice. When the Bill book and the vouchers were brought to him (Captain Grier) he saw that the totals were properly entered, and all particulars of the bill also. He did not, as a matter of practice, examined each of the vouchers going to make up the total of the bill. As a rule he examined them, but not always. Mr. Bodkin What do you mean ?—I took the bill and glanced over it to see that all the columns were com- plete. Mr Bodkin Was it apart of Davies's duty to make out a summary of the vonchers ?—No. Mr. Bodkin: But, as a matter of practice, did he do so ?—Yes. On the first voucher in the pile he would make out a summary of the other vouchers. Mr. Bodkin: You used to look through each voucher separately? No. Mr. Bodkin: Have you ever noticed alterations in the figures of the weight of goods transported ?- Yes. Mr Bodkin This year ?—I should think so. Mr Bodkin Have you ever spoken to him about it ? —Yes. Mr. Bodkin: What did he say ( ?—He said the figures were altered to include the weight of stores not included in the carriage note. What steps did you take ?—I accepted his explanation as satisfactory. Of about what amounts were the alterations ? Yery slight, indeed. What do you mean by slightPossibly from two tons to three tons. Do you ever recollect an alteration of as such as ten tons ?-No. Were you ever told by Davies who had made the al. terations ?—I can't say I was ever told. Any alteration in any voucher would be initialled by me. Would you have to take any part in the measuring of goods to be put on the barges?—N one, except in cases where there was no carrier's note. Last year, when the press of work was very great, such cases frequently occurred. Are you speaking of cases where the weight was omitted by accident ?—I presume it would be by accident. Where there was a carrier's note was it any part of Davies's duty to go on board the barge ?—No part of his duty. Did you ever hear from Davies that Coram and Co. had been carrying quantities of goods without carriers' notes ?—No, not before the inquiry began. Did he ever tell you he had altered the carriers' notes for ths purpose of making up to Messrs Coram what was due to them -He told me that after the iuq uiry, not before. Had you ever had communication from Messrs Coram on that point before the inquiry ?—No not before. Continuing, witness said he was not aware of Davies going backward and forward by the ferry from time to time. He remembered about the end of April of this year an account of £96 3s 4d. coming before him. It came from Devonport, accompanied by a communication. Witness spoke to Davies about it. Mr Bodkin: What did you say ?—I told him that there were queries as to the alterations of the accounts in favour of the contractor. Davies stated some of the alterations were his own, and as to others he could not say who had made them. He said the alterations for which he was responsible bad been made to rectify the amounts carried by Coram and Co. Mr Bodkin Did he say how he had arrived at the altered figure ?—He said he had measured the stores on the barges, and had altered the carriers' notes accordingly. Did he say whether he had done that alone ?—He did not say anyone had helped him. Consider again Captain Grier.-If you mean the making of the measurements, Davies said he was assisted by another member of the Army Ordnance Corps. Several vouchers, bills, carriers' notes, and other papers were here handed to the witness for him to identify alterations that had been made upon them. In several cases he pointed out that the handwriting of the alterations was corporal Davies's. One instance showed that an alteration had been made from six or sixteen tons of shells to 26. In another case eight tons had been made into eighteen tons, and in another case a figure one had been inserted before a nine, to make nineteen instead of nine. In yet another case two had been inserted before a six, making six into 26. Witness found on examining further papers that 26 had been made into 36, 36 into 46, and eighteen into 4S. These were in Corporal Davies's handwriting. N umerous other instances were given, amounting in all to 110 tons j of added measurement in the one bill of C96 3s. 4d. Mr Bodkin Did you notice that in every one of these alterations your initials do not appear r—I do, I'ntil the inquiry began had you seen those alterations No. Witness then recounted what happened when he went in May to Coram's office. Both Coram and James sat in in the office. On the occasions when he visited this office in the course of his business he always saw one or the other of these defendants. On his visit in May he saw Coram and James. He called Coram outside. What did you tell him r—I told him I had received an account from Devonport, several of the items in which had been questioned, and that I had several serious queries about these accounts and the alterations in them. Witness told Coram that Corporal Davies had said the weights had been altered to include amounts that had been carried by Coram & Co., and concluded by asking Coram whether he could throw any light on the matter. Coram said, "Let me call James, as he knows more about these things than I do. James was called out, and witness repeated to him what he had told Coram. Both defendants said the weights were shown in their accounts as they received them from Corporal Davies, and that instead of having been overpaid they considered, from what their bargemen told them, quantities of stores had been conveyed by them for the Government for which no acknowledgment or carriers' notes had been given, and that, conse q uentl that, consequently, they had been underpaid. The interview then ninated. The original account for X180 7s Sd was then handed to witness. It included an item for the Richardston target, which had been requisitioned for Popton Fort. Witness inquired of Davies why it was charged as freight when it was towed by a Government vessel. Davies replied that the matter had escaped his notice. About this time witness casually met Jae, whom be a.lso questioned. James said he considered the charge a fair one under the terms of Coram's contract. At a second interview with Davies the corporal made the same statement as to the fairness of the charge. Respecting an item for tent, bottoms, witness now found that a figure had been altered. Towards the end of May Davies voluntarily made a statement. Witness was pressing him for explanations regarding the alterations. He had acknowledged practically all the alterations in the account for £ <)6 3s 4d. An inquiry was being made, and Davies was called upon by witness to make an explanation. After the explanation was submitted witness had no conversation with Davies on the subject. Witness was cross-examined by Mr Muir as to the date at which any inquiry was first made as to Coram's accounts. Witness was unable to remember the date. After his depositions had been read over to him Captain Grier said that previous to the inquiry the number of alterations which he had noticed on the carriers' notes of Messrs. Coram and Company was very few. Altogether hundreds of documents relating to laud as well as water transport passed through his hands as well as other branches. Mr Alexander J. Westeim was next called. He said he was a clerk in tne Accountant-General's oflSee, War Office, Pall Mall. All aucounis above £ 1U0 were made payable in London. He identified a draft drawn in favour of Messrs. Coram and Co. for XISO 7s 7d, paid in August of last year. Mr William Crabbe, mate of the Drake, was called to prove that the Drake towed a Richardston target from Hobbs Paint to Popton on a date in July of last year. Witness said he kept the log of this vessel. Cross-examined by Mr Muir, witness said the duties of the Drake ",ere attending tq the defences of Milford Haven. Witness entered his log as soon as his day's work was done. He never made mistakes to the best of his knowledge. The captain examined the log every day. Mr Muir When did you first hear of an inquiry about this target. On Saturday last. Henry Bedford, bombardier in the Royal Garrison Fort Artillery at Popton, gave corroborative evidence respecting the Drake's towing the target to Popton. The master gijnuer, Parsons, bad nothing to do with the reception of the target at Popton, aud signed no papers respecting it. Coram and Co. 's barges had never brought a target to Popton all the time be had been there. Captain Henry Arthur Littledale, of the Army Ordnance Department, Pembroke Dock, said his office, stores, &c., were 411 at Hobb's Point, He had been at Hobb's point Quly since March last. Mr Bodkin said be would not trouble witness with questions. He had been called under a misunderstand- ing. Charles Wareham Hopkin, civilian clerk in the Army Service Department at Hobb's Point, said Corporal Davies had been with him in the office. Witness used to get orders and directions from Corporal Davies. In June of last year he had made an entry relating to a voucher based upon a carrier's note. He had written 58. It now appeared 87, and was initialled C. E. D." in the i handwriting of Corporal Davies. Witness had no kuowledge that this alteration had been made until after the inquiry into the matter was begun. After making entries' the books were left by witness for Corporal Davies. Ihe difference between the cnarge tor .j, aud t',7 [ tent bottoms was £ 7 10s. Mr James Law, civilian, foreman, Ordnance Wharf, I Hobb's Point, was re-called to correct evidence prcviously given by him. He had said he bad seen Davies fifteen or twenty times measuring stores, after they had been placed on the barges since August, 181)0. jje should have said since the first week in May of this year, At this stage the case was adjourned until Tuesday next, prisoners, being admitted to the same bail as here- tofore Mr Muir made an application through Mr De Rutzen to the military authorities that Davies be allowed full opportunity to make a statement to his solicitor without the presence of a military ofheer in the room in which he was confined. It was impossible for Davies to prepare a proper defence if a third person were in the room at the time. Mr Do Rut/en said he did not see the necessity for the presence of a sergeant in the room when the solicitor was present.

BETWEEN YOU AND MF." Very successful services in the cause of temperance have been held in Haverfordwest and district during the past few days, and there is every reason to hope that, as the result of Mr Mottram's visit, the cause will be materially advanced. The open-air meeting in Salutation Square on Sunday night was particularly stirring, and Mr Mottram's vigorous address was listened to with the deepest interest by the large crowd, which gathered round him. Copies of a leaflet from the pen of the Rev F. B. Meyer, President of the 20th Century Pledge Signing Crusade, have been largely distributed, and no efforts have been spared by the Free Church ministers locally to make the Crusade and its objects known. This leaflet points out that the need of such a Crusade is desperate: that millions are being added yearly to the already fabulous figures of the national drink bill, and that, evenin broad day- light, respectably dressed people may be seen in increasing numbers in the streets of our towns and cities, under the influence of liquor. Women frequent publichouses to an extent that some years ago would have been deemed impossible: lads and girls in their teens get drunk and homes, that might be happy, are made desolate. Mr Meyer continues that, as it is useless to look for help to the Government, they must try and combat this widespead curse by individual and collective effort. If workers here throw themselves energetically into the cause, it is not too much to hope that we shall soon witness a notable reformation. As people were coming from the United Temperance meeting on Sunday afternoon many of them could not help noticing a group of boys on the New Bridge obviously under the influence of drink. One little lad, possessed of the misguided notion that his aspirations to manliness could only be judged by his capacity for strong liquor, took care to impress on passers-by that he could drink twelve sleevers of adjective beer without getting drunk. His older companions no doubt encouraged him in his idea. It is pitiable to see youngsters led into the paths of degradation by such evil influences. The case is not an uncommon one, even in Haverfordwest, and supporters of the Pledge-Signing Crusade have got plenty of work before them. A wedding in Marloes district, mentioned at Roose Petty Sessions on Saturday last, seems to have been carried out under rather inauspicious circumstances. According to a visitor (who was examined at the sessions), the jubilations were conspicuous by their absence. The bride-man and his father had a row, the beer was small beer and there was not enough of it." This must have been very discouraging. In future, this disappointed visitor will no doubt obey the injunction of the economical bridegroom, who issued his invitations couched in the following classic style of poetry — Will you come to the wedding, will you come ? Bring your own tea and sugar, bring your own bread and butter. Will you come to the wedding, will you come ? The town of Haverfordwest is likely to spend the coming winter in comparative darkness. Owing to the conduct of the Gas Committee in endeavouring to make a very expensive bargain on their own responsibility, the new gasholder cannot be erected and put in working order under three months time. The probabilities are that it will be even longer. Meanwhile business will have to be conducted like the burial of Sir John Moore by the light of lanterns dimly burning." An excited gentleman, at the recent regatta i; Sol I-a, made the amusing announcement that the next event would be a pair-oared swimming race." Confused by the laughter, which this occasioned, he rushed into a tent and called for two bottles of syphons." It is palpable that the man was overworked and was getting mixed in consequence. Therefore he was gently led away by his friends, who inquired anxiously as to the state cf his poor head. THE INVETERATE GOSSIP.

NEYLAND NOTES. Monday last was what is known in Neyland and Pem- broke Dock as Government Day. The Government stopped the ferry boats landing at the ordinarv place, passengers having to be brought to the new pier by small boats. They also stopped the Military Road to all persons, except those living on it, as well as the Barrack Hill in Pembroke Dock. Some inconvenience was caused by this exercise of the Government claim, but not so much as last year, when, through some error, the right was put in force on the day of the usual monthlv mar- ket in Pembroke Dock, and cattle could not be sent over to the Neyland side. *#» The uniform staff of the Goods and Passenger depart- ments, with a few friends from the rest of the G.W.R. staff here, made a presentation recently to Mr Alfred Miles, booking clerk, as a testimony of their hearty good- will and their esteem for his many amiable qualities. The subscribers numbered about 80, and the presentation which was made at the Picton Castle Hotel, consisted of a silver tea and coffee service, dressing case and a pair of fish carvers. M, r John Christian, of the Midland Railway Company, occupied the chair, and Mr T. E. Williams, Marine Department, made the presentation on behalf of the subscribers. Mr Miles returned thanks in suitable terms, and the company spent an enjoyable and har- monious evening. There were half-a-dozen storms in a teapot at the Council meeting on Monday. Some of the members seemed to get frivolous, and to forget for the moment that they were not elected for the mere purpose of in- dulging in silly personalities. The less we hear of dyua- mite, electioneering, and other explosives in future, the quicker will the business be transacted. t f 0 Mr George Davies is opposed to the adoption of any lighting system just now, arguing that the ratepayers cannot afford it. No doubt there is a good deal to be said for this view, but at the same time I caunot agree that light is a luxury in Neyland. It will get dark in winter before nine or half-past nine," and light will then be a grievous necessity.
I' The Fishguard-Rosslare Route. NEW LINE TO BE COMMENCED FORTHWITH. Saturday s issue of the Pembroke Countv Guardian" stated that the Great Western Railway Company will immediately procced with the new line in connection with the Fishguard-Rosslare route, jn order to enable them to run fast trains between Goodwick and their jjresent main line. This step is in anticipation of the opening of the Fishguard-Rosslare steamboat service and the hoped-for Trans-Atlantic trade. The route chosen is from Clarbeston Road to the Western Cleddau, entering the valley near Treffgarne Rocks, thence up the course of the valley, and to the western side cf Lctterston. A large number of men will be employed, and the work will be pushed forward rapidly. [Inquiries which we have made show that this state- ment is not authentic.

At the Pan-American Expo- sition. IX EDUCATIONAL EXHIBITS THE GRAPHO- PHONE IS SUCCESSFULLY EMPLOYED. One crowded place at the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, is that where the special agfut having in charge a portion of the exhibit of the U.S. Government is giviug reproductions several times a day of tb. regular exercises in the schools of Washington, D.C., in the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis, and in the Indian School at Carlisle, Pa. The Graphol.Lone. the stereopticon, and the biograph are used as aids. The Granhophone reproduces lessons given by various teachers and the responses of the pupils. To these are added several musical compositions rendered by the Indian Band made up of pupils in attendance at the Government Indian School at Carlisle. Moving pictures are shown on a screen supplementing the Graphophone in picturing to the public a school in actual operation. And yet no woi a is spoken except throug°h the medium of the Graphophone. In the b?couy of the Ethnologil Building, tha Graphopnone is used for reproducing the language songs, prayers, cries, war-whoops and incantations of the American Iuaian. These records were made by Red Cloud, a famous Sioux chief, and sixteen of his braves. Ti-is use of tl,,p(,z-aphophone by the U.S. Government is a splendid endorsement of the instrument. The Grapiiophoue was the only Talking Machine awarded the Grand Prix at the Paris exposition. Everywhere it is conceded to be the best. It is not only useful, but one in the home brings in its train all endless amount of enter- tainment aud 0 n.musen.teut.

Revolting Cruelty. HORSE DRIVE NT TO DEATH AT PEMBROKE. A tale of shocking cruelty to a horse was told at Pembroke on Saturday. The evidence showed that a soldier groom in the employ of Major Morrison took his master's horse and trap at 7.30 on Sunday morning, aud with a friend named Mahony drove round" the conn try at a furious rate until 11 o'clock, and then with two others till dinner time. After that the occupants were increased to five, Luinkin and two young men joining them. They made for Angle, and Waugh (the groom) beat the mare in I a merciless manner. Aftei leaving Angle, and being only a short distance from the village, the mare dropped down dead. The testIlllony cJ Mr W. Davies, M.R.C. Y.S., showed that the animal died from exhaustion. Underneath the skin was a mass of weals and bruises, caused (according to the evidence) by the butt end of the broken whip. The distance the mare had been driven at such a furious rate was about 40 miles. Lumkin, who remonstrated with Waugh, took the whip away from him and pitched him out, was fined £ 2 and costs the two Joneses, who merely sat in the trap, were sent to gaol :or one month each with hard labour while Waug" h v.-as given three months. Mahoney did not appear, an a warrant was issued for his apprehension.

AMERICAN PRESIDENCY.—Mr William J. Bryan has announced that he is satisfied with being defeated twice as candidate for the Presidency, and that he will not run for the Presidency again. A very pleasing presentation took place at Llanrian on the 28th ult., when Trooper B. H. Jones, lately returned from South Africa, was the recipient of one of Benson's famous" Bank" watches bearing the following inscription: Presented to Trooper B. H. Jones, by the parishioners of Llanrian on his return from the Transvaal War as a token of esteem for his services, 1900-1901." THE FLORENTINE.—A title possibly well known to most of our readers, but to those to whom it is not known, we say, make its acquaintance as soon as possible. It is only the name of a Glove; but such a Glove; a Ladies Glove of extra quality Kid simply perfect in fit, and of great durability a choice skin of medium weight, thicker than ordinary kid, but thinner than Chevrette, with four fancy buttons to match the shade of the glove. It is one of the specialities of MESSRS. GREENISH & DAWKIJJS, Market Street, and can be had in Beaver Drabs, Brown, Tans or Black. Another of the Firm's specially renowned gloves is one made from a Gazelle skin, or Australian Reindeer, in Tan or Grey, with four buttons, and is said to wear equal to a real Reindeer, although costing only 2s lld per pair. Ladies who have once worn either of these two makes invariably have them again. MESSRS. GREENISH & DAWKINS issue a complete Glove list of the various makes they stock and will be pleased to hand a copy to anyone wishing to have it. It is one of their most successful Departments, and they can invariably supply from stock almost any kind of gloves, either for Ladies, Gentlemen or Children.
