THE HAVERFORDWEST SCIENCE AND ART CLASSES. The importance of Technical Education is almost universally recognised now-a-days. An ounce of practice is worth a pound of theory, and the principles of a science are of little effective use to anyone who does not know how to apply them. For years classes have been in existence in various centres in Pembrokeshire to impart this education, and, in the case of adult pupils, many have gained such knowledge as enabled them greatly to improve their positions in life. The Science and Art Class in Haverfordwest, in particular, has rendered most effective ser- vice. Its pupils have been, and are, entirely recruited from the very class of young men and women in whose interests the Technical Education Act was framed, and not from the ranks of little school boys, or from dilettan- tes, who take up the study of a scientific or art subject out of mere curiosity of a hobby. They joined the class Ill- tention of making pracH? -?se of the know- ledge they acquired J^ere* ?s fact is well-I known. It ,i,fore a distinctly retro- gressive sign wnen punuons nave to be got up and appeals made to the Technical Educa- tion Committee for tAe continuance of the miserable grant, which enables the class to 1"0< It is the only class in t- countv w hich teaches mlvancr-2 obj ects to the sort of pupils concp;, ed b,, the authors of the Act, and it is the only one whIcl has secured advanced certificates. The grut of X70 heretofore made by the Commttee is the minimum sum on which the clas can live, but, some of the members havig got a notion into their heads that the aly "fair and equitable" basis on which ti grants should be made is the number atten- dances, it is proposed that it shouL be re- duced. The Managers of the Haverxdwest School have naturally become aland, and yesterday two of their number attend' as a deputation before the Committee to me its claims on their consideration. These lirus were set out clearly by Mr Edward-iton Evans and the Rev F. N. Colborne, but eir arguments did not seem to influence he members of the Committee very much, ih the exception of Sir Charles Philipps and r J. C. Yorke, who took a very fair-mind view of the situation. A complicated pI j posal was made by Mr W. Palmer Atorgali i who has the reputation of being a very sen sible man, but it does not strike us as bein: either fair or equitable." His suggestioi was that tne grains iu LUt) senoois snouia oe1 reckoned according to the number of pupils taught in each of the four groups of subjects, a higher capitation allowance being made according to the more ad vanced nature of each subject. One cannot see exactly how this would work, but, as Sir Charles Philipps put it, there is every reason to fear that Haverfordwest, with its small attendance, would be swamped by Pembroke Dock, which would eat up all the money on the basis sug- gested. For instance, if there were four pupils in Haverfordwest in Class 4, and that they were allowed Gd per head, it would only mean 2s., whereas Pembroke Dock with say 30 pupils in Class 2 at 2d per head would get 5s. The principle of a capitation grant is quite inapplicable to the allocation of the funds at the disposal of the Technical Educa- tion Committee for fostering Science and Art in the county. The grant should in all fair- nest be made in proportion to the merits of the school, to the nature of the subjects taught, and to the usefulness of the work done amongst the class of people to whom Technical Education is most useful. We hope that, at their next meeting, when the Committee propose to formulate a scheme of distribution, they will draft it upon these lines, and not upon the primitive principle of counting heads.
LOCAL AND OTHER NEWS. Mr and Mrs John George, Cemetery Row, City Road, desire to return their heartfelt thanks to the many friends who so kindly showed their sympathy during their recent sad bereavement. SALE OF BROADMOOR FARM.—This farm comprising 206- acres, with premises and a cottage on the cliff, has been sold to Lord Kensington by Mr T. Rule Owen, auctioneer for the vendor, (Mr J. Wilkes Harvey), for X6, 350. It was put up for sale some time since but was not sold at the public auction. At Guildford Registration Court on Mon- day the Lord Chief Justice (Lord Alverstone) was objected to by the Radicals, as his name was not on the Parliamentary list for Cranleigh. The objection was allowed, but the name was placed on the parochial list of electors. NARROW ESCAPE OF MR JOHN GEORGE.— Mr John George, Hasguard, had a narrow escape from a serious accident in High Street on Wednesday afternoon. In his capacity of Liberal Agent he was proceeding to the Revision Court at the Temperance Hall, in his pony trap, when the front portion of the conveyance came apart from the remainder when just opposite St. Mary's Church. Mr George was fortunately uninjured. CYCLING ACCIDENT.-On Thursday evening a party of lady cyclists were returning from Cresborough, and when near the end of the New Road Haverfordwest, one of them ran into two elderly ladies, inmates of the Almshouses. One of the old ladies, named Miss Thomas, fell, and her leg was broken just below the knee. She was taken to the Infirmary, where her injuries were attended to. APPROACHING DEPARTURE OF THE REV. T. R. LEWIS.This popular minister, whose near departure for Vancouver we announced sometime since, will preach his farewell sermon in Broad Haven Baptist Chapel on next Sunday night. There will no doubt be a large congregation, as Mr Lewis is not only much esteemed personally but he has earned an excellent reputation as an impressive and effective speaker. PRESENTATION.—Last week Mr T. W. Price, who has been very popular in the town during the period that he has acted as cashier at the London and Provincial Bank, High street, was the recipient of a presentation, made by Mr H. T. James, on behalf of a number of personal friends and customers at the Bank on the occasion of leaving to take up the management of the Milford Branch. The presentation took the form of a marble clock and a liqueur stand. Mr Price suitably replied. Mr. T. Y. Lewis, of Lloyds Bank, Milford Haven, writes to say that on Saturday evening, at eight o'clock or soon after, he was cycling from Fish- guard to Newport, Pern. When near Dinas Cross he saw the whole sky lighted up for a few seconds by a dazzling meteor, which appeared to drop a little to the west of Fishguard. Such light from a meteor hen ever before witnessed. The object was also seen at Carmarthen by a friend of Mr. Lewis. Did any one else observe it?- Western Mail. METEOROLOGICAL REGISTER.—Taken at St. Ann's Head for the week ending 8 a.m. September 17th. Highest barometer reading reduced to 32 F. and to mean sea level 30-05 on the 12th; lowest 29.73 on the 14th; maximum temperature in the shade 61 on the 13th; minimum on the 11th amount of rainfall -010 inches hours of bright sunshine 25-8 prevailing winds northerly and westerly, light to strong breezes; weather moderately tine, rather dull and small amount of sun- shine; sea rather rough with heavy ground swell the greater part of week. HAVERFORDWEST SEPTEKBER FAIR.—The second fair this month, which was held yesterday, was spoiled to a fery large extent by the heavy rain. The attendance of dealers was rather small, and prices were not very satisfactory. A large number of cattle were brought home unsold. Fat stock were scarce, but store cattle were plentiful, and their prices ranged from two- year-olds from £ 8 to X12. Cows with calves fetched from 19 to X 13; yearling mutton realised lnd to 7d per lb; heavier sheep, 5d to 5' d. There was a good supply of sucking colts, which fetched from £ 6 to X9 each. COUNTY EXHIBITIONS.—The Committee ap- pointed by the County Governing Body to award the County Exhibiti(ns, value £10 each, tenable for three years, met yesteiday afternoon, and, upon the recom- mendation of the Central Welsh Board, awarded them to the following thrte ladies, who are pupils in the Pem- broke Dock Cotuty School: —Miss Florence Amy Froughton, Miss imily Gladys Potter, and Miss Dora Helen Thomas. Ai unusual feature of the recommenda- tions of the Centnl Welsh Board this year is that only ladies were recomnended for the exhibition, which are granted to assist pupils to go from county schools to places of higher edication. EBENEZER CHAPEL ANNIVERSARY.—Special Services in connection with this Anniversary were held on Sunday last, in the morning, afternoon and evening The congregations at all were above the ordinary high average on such ciscasions. Powerful and impress- ive sermons were delive'ed at each of the services by the Rev J. M. Saunders, MA., Swansea, and were listened to with the deepest attention, The preacher made reference to the deatl of President McKinley in the prayers. The choir smg sweetly and the collections were good. The Pasor Kev W. Mendus, and the members are to be congratulated on the success of services with which tlsy celebrated their Anniversary and on the religious 'ervour with which they were marked. THE FLORENTINE—A title possibly well known to most of our raders, but to those to whom it is not known, we say, rulke 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 gt-&,t durability a choice skin of medium weight, thicker than ordinary kid, but thinner than Chevrette, fith four fancy buttons to match the shade of the glove. It is one of the specialities of MESSRS. GREENISH & DAWKINS, 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 skn, or Australian Reindeer, in Tan or Grey, with foui buttons, and is said to wear equal to a real Reindeer, although costing only 2s ll Vd per pair. Ladies who ha-e once worn either of these two makes invariably have tliQl again. MESSRS. GREENISH & DAWKINS issue a compete Glove list of the various makes they stock and wil be pleased to hand a copy to anyone wishing to have it. It is one of their most successful Departments, aid they can invariably supply from stock almost any kiri of gloves, either for Ladies, Gentlemen or Children.
Accident at th* Haverfordwest Gas Works. An accident, fortunately not of a very serious naturr occurred at the Havsrfor?est Gas Works on Muu.?y morning.

Jleoietos. I By nOCK AND POOL.-This is the title of a collection of short stories and sketches of Australian and South gea island life, which has just bben issued by Messrs. T. Fisher Unwiu, Paternoster Square, E.C. It is written by Mr Louis Becke, who has already gained a high reputation by the vivid and exciting character of his writings, and who lived many years amongst the scenes which he now describes with such a facile pen. The most huioorcus story in this book is that entitled "Mrs MacLaggan's Billy "-bein, the largest and ugliest goat ever known and being very much addicted to drink. In this story the author tells us in a side- splitting fashion of the extraordinary antics of Billy when out upon the spree, and no more comic thing can well be imagined. A story of an entirely different character, and one calculated to bring tears to the eyes of the susceptible reader, is The Man in the Buffalo Hide." It shows the terrible manner in which Chinese torture their enemies when they get them in their power. A short extract will give an idea of the nature of this story and of the powerful character of the Writing: A black cloud of flies arose and revealed a I-"ght that will haunt Carpenter to his dying day-the gurpled, distorted face of a living man. The eyelids had ? Uiuy two dreadful, bloodied, glaring 0\°rror JippcaI°a mutely to God. The victim's (P had been drawn up to his chin, and only his head « rvvi;sible, for the fresh buffalo hide in which his body 1 been gown fitted tightly round his neck." It is a '0Tl Mdone not easily forgotten. The book is ether fascinating and well worth reading ￼ "BE ST. DAVID'S TRAGEDY. MB SMITH'S BODY FOUND.

Technical Education Committee. I THE HAVERFORDWEST SCIENCE AND ART CLASSES. PROPOSED NEW BASIS FOR GRANT. A meeting of this committee was held in the Council Chamber yesterday morning. The chairman, Rev. Lewis James, presided, and there were also present: Sir Charles Philipps, Dr Havard, Messrs Thomas Llewellin, Joseph Thomas, Lemuel Jones, George Parcell, J. C. Yorke, and W. Palmer Morgan. SCIENCE AXD ART. Mr E. Eaton-Evans and Rev F. N. Colborne were in- troduced as a deputation in connection with a request for the continuance of the grant to the Haverfordwest Science and Art Class. The following petition on the matter had previously been distributed amongst the members of the committee :— The Assembly Rooms, Haverfordwest 12th September 1901. Gentlemen.—We respectfully petition the Technical Instruction Committee of the Pembrokeshire County Council to make grants upon the individual needs of Science and Art Classes, and not as was suggested at their last meeting, by payment on attendance. The amount of attendance grant proposed would prevent the good work which has been carried on for so many years in Haverfordwest, being continued. The committee appears to place all Art Classes in the County upon the same level, whilst there is as much difference between Art Classes as there is between Infant Schools and Intermediate Schools; and there is as much difference too in the qualifications of their Masters. We respectfully claim that each class should be considered on its own merit, and a distinction drawn between Technical Art Classes and Continuation or Night-schools. The only condition which prevents the Haverfordwest Art Class from becoming a School of Art'' is that it is not held in a building set apart absolutely for that purpose. The master is qualified, and a knowledge of the advance work taught has enabled students of this Art Class to obtain good useful positions in life. All subjects taught in these classes are Technical subjects, described as technical by the Act, and certificates have been gained in the following advanced subjects :—(and with one exception-Painting still Life, no such certificates have been gained by any other class in the county), Architecture, Principles of Ornament, Design, Painting Ornament, Painting Still Life, Perspective, Modelling in Clay from Antique, in addition to the ordinary subjects. And in Science subjects Building Construction and Geometry. All taught by the same qualified resident master. We have other classes in Science from which students have gained certificates in Chemistry, Mechanics, Physiography and Mathematics. Within the last 6 years 204: certificates have been gained. The Haverfordwest Art Class is not associated with any school in the town, and does not get its students by drafting into it all pupils over 12 years of age, so as to earn grants. The classes are attended by young people engaged in craft, and who have a genuine desire to improve in such craft by a more thorough knowledge of it, and so to fit themselves for more useful positions in it by those also who intend becoming Teachers, and by pupil teachers. We believe that all Students of these classes attend of their own desire. The small grants on attendance proposed by the Technical Committee would be altogether inadequate to keep the classes going. Anything less than the grant of last year would be fatal to the carrying on of such classes as those for which we plead, and we most earnestly pray that such good work, creditable to, and for the benefit and honour of this county, may not for the lack of funds be allowed to cease. (Signed) BY THE MANAGERS OF THE SCHOOL. Mr Eaton-Evans said they attended to ask the Com- mittee to continue to the Haverfordwest Science and Art Class the grant the committee were good enough to give last year, which was X70. Mr Joseph Thomas: It was £80 and reduced to X 0-0 last year. Mr Eaton-Evans continued that the grounds of the application were fully set out in the printed paper which had been distributed. He believed it was an undoubted fact that the Haverfordwest Class had done and was doing a vast amount of good work, and he thought it was very deserving of support. There was one reason in particular for the continuance of the grant, and it was that, during the last six years, the Haverfordwest class had got 204 certificates in all classes of the subjects taught. Sir C. Philipps Out of how many attendances. Mr Colborne There has been an average attendance of between sixty and seventy. Sir C. Philipps That is more than in the majority of classes. Mr Colborne: Yes, and in some cases they have got the higher certificates. Continuing, he said that the class, which had been in existence 20 years, had done exceptionally good work, such work as had not been done by any other classes in the county. In fact thera were no Art Classes which were teaching advanced work, such as they were teaching in Haverfordwest, in the whole county. With one exception, no certificates had been gained in any advanced subjects pointed out in sec. 5, save in Haverfordwest. The committee no doubt remembered their difficulty some four years ago when they in Haverfordwest thought the class would have to be closed, because of the change which the Government made then, paying the grant on attendances instead of examination results, and also forcing them to pay their masters fixed salaries instead of farming the schools as they had been doing. That change brought their income in Haverfordwest down .50 per cent. The public, who had been subscribing up to that time, told them that the County Council were the authority to provide funds in the future. That caused their urgent appeal to the County Council, which brought about the striking of the farthing rate for technical education in the county. The Chairman of the Council was good enough to take up the matter then very heartily. The farthing rate brought in about £ 450, and the Technical Committee, seeing that the first claim was that of Haverfordwest in whose interest the rate had been made, allowed Haverfordwest £ 80 that year. However, that was reduced to JE70 last year, and they now heard rumours that this vear the grant would be still further reduced, but they hoped it was not true. If the grant were further reduced they would be compelled very much against the interests of the town to close the school. It was quite impossible again to call on the public for subscriptions. He thought the committee would see by the paper before them that they were doing exceptional work in Haverfordwest, which was a boon to all and an honour to the county. The classes were open to anyone who cCl:¡ld attend, 'and he asked the committee to continue the grant. Sir Chas. Phillips asked what was the difference between an art class and an school of art. Mr Colborne replied that their art class was entitled to be called a school of art, the only hindrance being that they had not a building to be used solely tor the purpose. Mr Morgan How much did you veceive during the last six years from the Government 'i Mr Colborne said he did not know but last year it was about L33. When they were paid by examinab'r results, their grant was nearly double that.

Mr yorke said the Qlam (?f E?verfordwest seemed to be grounded on the fact that scholars could come there from all parts of the county. Mr Jones remarked that there were similar classes in Narberth, Cardigan, Tenby and Fishguard. Mr Colborne: I think you will fiad there is a dis- tinction between them. All we ask is that the classes, in your allotment of the grant, shall be taken on their merits. Our examination results were better for years than big schools like Swansea, but now that the grants are reckoned on attendances the small school must suffer. All our students are young men and women, mostly employed in craft. We don't draw, as in some country districts, boys and girls just over 12 years of age or who have passed from the 7th standard, and so are enabled to claim big attendance results. In our advanced class. advanced subjects 4re taught io young people who want to improve themseleves. Sir Chas. Phillips said it seemed that Haverfordwest was the only class in which young people desirous of im- proving their position in life were taught. Mr Colborne gave as a concrete example the case of a young man, recently appointed as Surveyor and Architect to the Council of Little IJaniptGUj Sussex, who attributed his suooess to the tuition given him in the Haverfordwest Art Class. Mr Morgan The Haverfordwest class is no better than the classes in Pembroke Dock, Tenby or Narberth. Chairman: How are we as a Committee to deal out the funds at our disposal justly and fairly to the different classes We voted lump sums from the beginning, but we heard cowplairt2 m the County Council that the basis was an unsatisfactory one, and that the Committee were favouring one place more than another. We are feeling for a basis to distribute it equally. than^u;ttTdoneT!d0redthat Haverford^t had more than justice done it. ^^C0V0rUeVWl/l"k ? no favouritism. We ask that the classes should be treated on their merits, and then I believe we should get a very substantial grant. I migh also remind the Committee that, in all probability, had it not been for the pressure brought to be^r cu the County Council by the authorities of the School of Art here, there might not haye been this £ 450: to distribute at The Chairman said ttat it was ripening for years, although perhaps Haverfordwest might have hurried it The deputation withdrew. Mr Morgan said that he had nroDC?ed at th6 }E; ￼ meeting that the grant be given ? e<,cL looality \n p? portion to the number of pupils attending the schools. It was most unjust to give Haverfordwest £70, as it had only 1,000 atieiidances, whilst Pembroke Dock with 8,00 attendances only got ?0, Tenby, with about o.OOO, only £ 30, and Narberth with 4,000, only 1:20. He was giving the figures roughlv from memcV but the present grants were altogethpr o-t of proportion! Sir Chas. Philipps pointed cut that the standard in the Haverfordwest class was the highest of all. Y oug men and women were specially prepared for the duties they were called upon to carry out in life, whereas in the other schools a large proportion of the attendances was due to pupils, who only attended the classes for the mere pleasure of being adva-nced m higher knowledge. The Haverfordwest class seemed to be what he might call the University in these particular branches, the other classes being only the public schools. 1 Mr Morgan said the teachers in Narberth were as highly qualified as those in Haverfordwest. Mr Yorke replied that the students in the Haverford- west class were practically grown up men and women. 1 heir attendances were much more valuable than tho of children just out of school. Sir Chas. Philipps said that, under the circumstances, H averfordwest was entitled to some little indulgence. Mr T. Llewellin said they never heard of the other classes until they had agreed, on the representation of the Haverfordwest class, to strike the farthing rate, and could not get a report from them for two years. A long discussion followed, in the course of which figures were given showing the results, which would ensue in the event of the grant being made on attendances only. Pembroke Dock would benefit immensely, whilst the Haverfordwest class, although teaching the most advanced subjects of all, would get almost the least. Sir Charles Philipps urged the Committee to take a high view of their duties, not to count heads, but to con- sider the nature of the work done in each class. Haver- fordwest seemed to be the only school in which the letter and spirit of technical education were really carried out. The higher branches of art were taught to young people. The petition before them was signed by many influential persons, who knew what they were signing and knew the good done by the class. He therefore ventured to propose that for this year at least, Haverfordwest be allowed the same grant as last year, £ 70. Mr Yorke said that he had much pleasure in seconding the motion. He thought it came better from someone outside Haverfordwest to second it. It seemed to him that Haverfordwest was the only school really devoted to elder students, and the only one that covered the whole of the four groups of subjects. Mr Morgan: Yes, but only in drawing: the other schools may devote more attention to science than to fancy work. Sir Charles Philipps said drawing was most essential to intending architects, etc. Mr Yorke said that, in future, science would be very largely separated from the Art Classes. The Chairman remarked that, in the attendance, pupils of county schools would not count in future, as they were supposed to have these subjects taught them in the schools. Evening classes would be for people who had left school. Mr Morgan said some subjects were taught in Science and Art Classes, which were not taught in the ordinary schools and it would not be fair to prevent boys attending. Sir Charles Philipps: The higher the education classes teach, the better they ought to be subsidised. Mr Morgan did not see why they should treat Haver- fordwest differently from the other schools in the county. There was no ancient history attached to it, as these classes were started each year for the winter session. The rate was levied for the whole county and why should Haverfordwest get any preference ? Sir Charles Philipps Because it is the only class which teaches Group 4. Mr Morgan: But what has it (lone in Science, Botany or Agriculture r I should be very pleased at Haverford- west getting X70, but not at the expense of other places. Mr Yorke said, if the grant were made a capitation grant, Pembroke Dock would get jE170 or practically one- half of the whole amount at their disposal. The Chairman presumed they were all agreed to give £:20.) to these classes, but how were they to distribute it fairly ? Mr Yorke pointed out that L70 was the minimum sum on which the Haverfordwest class could live, and, if they did not intend to shut up the most important school in the county, they should renew that grant. Mr Morgan did not see how the class would die if they had a grant according to the subjects taught. Mr Yorke said that even a grant of 6d per head on each of the 1415 attendances in the Haverfordwest School would not amount to 170. Sir Charles Philipps Rather than starve the schools, I should be prepared to move another farthing rate, which is not a severe burden on anyone. A man rated at C200 a year might have to pay 5s. It is a pity to do away with such good work. Mr Llewellin If the committee are so jealous about Haverfordwest it would be better to do away with the rate altogether. Mr Parcell said £ 70 was a very large proportion to give Haverfordwest. Mr Morgan proposed that the grant in aid to each Science and Art class through the county should be in pro- portion to the number of attendances in the classes in each group, outside the pupils of Elementary and Intermediate Schools, and that the grant should also have some regard to the amount earned by the students in each subject. Sir Charles Philipps said that was very complicated and it would require some time to ascertain how it would work out. He was afraid that the result of such a scheme would be that the classes in the big towns, like Pembroke Dock, with a large population from which to draw their pupils, would swamp the little ones by the mere brute force of numbers. There should be more regard paid to to the smaller and poorer towns. Mr Joseph Thomas said that wages were higher and there was more money spent now in Pembroke Dock than in the memory of man before. Mr Yorke agreed with Sir Charles Philipps. The little places would get next to nothing when it came to a question of counting heads. Sir Charles Philipps It is a vicious result. Mr Morgan contended that the principle of a capita- tion grant was right because it had been adopted by the Government. Eventually Mr Parcell moved, and Mr Morgan seconded that the matter be adjourned to a special meeting to be summoned by the chairman to consider the adoption of a scheme for the distribution of the grant, and that in the meantime each member of the Committee be furnished with a copy of the directory showing the subjects taught, etc.. in each of the classes in the county. LECTURES IX GARDENING. On the motion of Sir Charles Philipps, seconded by th chairman, it was agreed to engage a lecturer to lecture on horticulture in whatever centres he was required for .C12 10s. The local committees will in each case have to supply the articles required by the lecturer, but the fees will be paid by the committee, and lectures must not be given to pupils of elementary schools. The Chairman said there ought to be better gardens in [Pembrokeshire and more fruit trees grown near every farmhouse or cottage. He hoped these lectures would act as a stimulus. I The application of Pembroke Dock Intermediate School for an annual grant of £ 50 towards its Cookery and Laundry Class, and an application from Tasker's School for the establishment of a cookery or a laundry class were deferred. | AGRICULTURAL SCHOLARSHIPS. There were only three applications for six agricultural scholarships of £ 8 each and two exhibitions of £ 15 each William Handcock, Robleston, Camrose; William Morgan Lewis, Brynnw, Narberth; and Thomas Thomas, Llanfirnach, the two first mentioned being for the short course. The scholarships and exhibition were awarded to the applicants respectively. Mr Yorke And there are still three going ° be This was all the business of interest, n .?i.Jl

"BETWEEN YOU AND ME." A case of considerable interest to the medical profession was heard at Roose Petty Sessions on Saturday last. It was brought by the Haverfordwest District Council, through their Sanitary Inspector, against Dr. Thomas Finney, of Aberdare, and the charge was that the latter "wilfully and unlawfully allowed a man suffering from scarlet fever to travel from Aberdare to Haverfordwest, and to expose himself on the road from Haverfordwest to Roch to the danger of the public. The evidence in the case, which is detailed elsewhere, showed that the defen- dant exercised all reasonable precaution, and that, be- fore he allowed the patient to travel, he assured himself that he was not suffering from scarlet fever. This seems to be a somewhat difficult disease to diagnose in the early stages, and the doctor's error of judgment was not sur- prising. There were apparently unusual circumstances in the patient's condition, and it was quite natural that the doctor should conclude that the man was suffering simply from a bad cold and not from scarlet fever. The Bench dismissed the case. Still it was well that the prosecution was initiated. There may be some doctors who do not exercise so much care as Dr Finney, and this prosecution may be a warning to them that they should do so in future, when they have reason to suspect the existence of any infectious disease. The rumour that the Assembly Rooms are to be handed over to Haverfordwest for a Free Public Library has been again revived. I hope that it will quickly leave the stage of rumour and be crystallised into fact. There is a grievous necessity for such an institution in the town. If the necessary building could be obtained I am sure an energetic committee could obtain gifts of hun- dreds of books, and the nucleus of an excellent library could soon be formed. At present a large proportion of the best literary, scientific and other works are out of the reach of most of the young people on account of their price. They have therefore to fall back upon snip- pets, with their collection of pre-Adamite jokes, conun- drums, post-card competitions, and the usual array of advertisement fakes. The boys are supplied with tales 01 blood and thunder, in which the hero single handed always overcomes the villain and a dozen satellites: whilst the girls, for a penny, can get a varied selection of alleged journals, which not only give away paper patterns, but throw in recipes by the aid of which they can individually ascertain, from the colour of their sweetheart's hair, whether he likes jam on his bread. A good library would remove some of the emptiness of life in the town. The reading of books containing the best thoughts of the most highly cultivated minds, will give young people something to think about and to talk of, besides the petty trivialities of local life and surround- ings, which make up such a great part of the ordinary conversation at present. An antidote is badly needed for the vacuity and idleness, which now send so many young men into public houses in the evenings with the idea of breaking the monotony of their existences by an occasional spree. The establishment of a library in the town will be welcomed for these and other equally strong reasons. For ages woman has been abused as the possessor of a long tongue. An incident, which occurred in Haverford- west the other day, shows that it is not her sole perquisite. Men are frequently afflicted with it. When a man is kno ,m to suffer in that way he lays himself open to the pranks of practical jokers. A well-known gossiper was victimised the other day by two gentlemen who knew his weakness. Meeting these two, he accosted them cheerily with his usual salutation, "What's the latest news r "What," they replied "have you not heard it:" "Xo," said he. *A fearful murder was committed in Xarberth yesterday. So-and-So killed his wife and then committed suicide," they answered, and proceeded to embellish their narrative with various horrifying details. The gossiper went on his way, rejoicing at this delightful tit-bit of conversation, and startled hundreds of people with his gory tale. The police heard it and made inquiries, and discovered that it had no foundation. The tragic incident was a myth, the gossip had been hoaxed, and the murder bad been concocted and carried out in a door way in High-street. It's dangerous to ask wags What's the latest news." *♦»* The degrading vice of horse-betting has apparently taken a firm hold in Haverfordwest. It is one of the most common ways in which fools and their money get parted, but here it flourishes without let or hindrance on the part of the police, who often spend days up a tree in the endeavour to discover a breach of the licensing laws. Gambling is a much more grievous evil and has much more demoralising effects, and, if there is not prompt in- terference by the police, the number of the old, young and middle-aged men in the locality who are fast ruining themselves by betting, will of course increase. The arrival of the train with the spwiing papers is eagerly awaited each morning by men anxious to spot the winner, and hcuis are spent in debating the odds., as if it were the most important matter in the -;f- :,t- Flats, who imagine they know something &bout the form of horses and w.ho can speak learnedly of trials and weights, are plentiful, and,. r*s the "bookie" has a mctiopoiy and fixes his O,Wn prices, it is easy to guess who get victimised,. Ctac-6 this vice seizes upon a man, he plunges.iuuncv on his "fancy regardless of the wants of lus family or the payment of his just debts. He gets into the clutches of professional tipsters, who promise him a winter's keep "-in other words a dead certainty —for .)8. or 10s., to pay for a wire ca the day of some particular race. An occasiona l win simply makes the gambler more reckless and; he continues his speculations in the hope, of it^alsmg a rapid fortune. The sequel is usually seen in the bankruptcy court or in the accumula- tion of judgment summonses. tk I If the gambler thought for a moiuuvi he w/ald see that he was bound to lose and \vci,ld giw up the game as a bad job. In very exceptional ",scs he may have a run of gücd lucfe, but il f\ ,1¡6 run all his winnings and so?e more find ??' w?y back into the coffers .? the astute b?"??-" However, backers whether young or old ?? not think and they must be ?tected as far as ?-6 possible from the consequent of their own folly It may not be possible suppress betting altogether, but the law eerily empowers the police to see that it is not camea on m au open and flagrant manner. With a little exertion the police might be able to discover the local bookie," who for years past, has made such an easy living out of foolish G.ILI--blers, and a successful prosecution could no, duubt be instituted. A substantial fine might uo,t m11 the evil, but it would scotch it and force it into more secret places. THE INVETERATE GOSSIP. I

Do You Know? That Supt. Francis does not expect the millenium in A hurry. That, as it did not arrive by 11.35 a.m. on Saturday last, he has given up hope. That perhaps it did not like to land during the hearing of the great state trial from Marloes at Roose Petty Sessions. That the millenium is the ardently expected time of universal happiness, when turkeys will chew tobacco and dogs play cards for Spratt's patents. That a gentleman with a stethoscope did some interesting compounding in a cart on the Castle Square on Saturday. That he told a crowd of bystanders what certain famous pills were composed of, and assured them that quacks now made more money than regular members of the profession. That, while protesting that he could not himself cure all diseases, he would like to see the liver complaint he could not shift. That some country people, who imagined they had bad livers, sampled some of his medicine for nothing. That they liked it so much that they invested their nimble threepences in a cargo of it. That the only remarkable thing about itinerant doctors is their modesty. That I have often wondered whv they don't supply new livers made of leather, or tin, or something equally durable. That a local cobbler or a tinsmith could then repair their internal machinery with a few stitches or by the application of a soldering iron. That a meeting of the Tasker's School Governors on Monday fell through, owing to the lack of a quorum. That the heavy rain no doubt kept some of the members away. That, by the death of President McKinlev on Saturday morning. the United States have lost a third President by assassination. That three have been murdered within 36 years. That the whole civilised world sympathises with the great English speaking nation beyond the Atlantic in their deep sorrow. That the laymen, who attended the last Roose Sessions, know more about scarlet fever than they ever did before. That a Tory lodger has been defined as a warming pan. That, if the definition has any sort of a general appli- cation, a Tory M.P. must be a regular furnace. That one need not be surprised if the definition is accurate as long as we have such freaks of nature as Tory working-men. That people in Haverfordwest have already begun to ask who will be Mayor next year." That echo answers who," or words to that effect. That the queriest ought to be referred to the gentleman' who killed the woman in Narberth the other day by the use of that terrible weapon the reliable rumour. That after that one understands the origin of the saying It's only a rumour, don't believe it. That the British Acting Consul's report on the state of the distant island of Samoa is a doleful document. That he says the natives spend most of their time playing cricket for stakes, consisting of pigs and kegs of salt beef. That, when not playing cricket, they travel about discussing politics. That, as these are two of the most blessed privileges of civilization, the Samoans are evidently getting on. That it rained as if it had never rained before during the last two days. That it descended in a straight, steady, merciless downpour, which chased even ducks and waterfowl to shelter. That it once more exemplified the uselessness of some of the street channels.
