PLEASANT AFTERNOON AT DEW STREET INFANTS' SCHOOL. A pleasant and instructive few hours were spent at the Dew Street Infants' School on Wednesday afternoon, when Miss Emment and her staff invited parents and friends of the infants to be present in order to witness a programme made up of the every- day work of the children, without any preparation or rehearsal. The illustration of the methods in daily use in the school must have dispelled any idea which existed of over-taxing the mental capabilities of the children by set tasks, Kev. Yj, iNicholson Jones presided, and referred to the improvement in the methods of teaching the young to-day. School life had been made a pleasure and a joy to the child, and instruction was imparted to the youthful mind in a manner which made attendance at school attractive to the children. The following programme was gone through :— Flag drill song, lirst class; song, Summer shower" song, "Little golden sliilbeal-il recitation, "Next song, third class; song, The birdie's nest' solo and. chorus, "The doll's Itilltby," Evelyn Powell; recitation, The advice of the newer," second class song, Busy housewives," the girls song, Seeing the fairies"; recitation, "Why mother is proud," first class; song and game, Crocus bells," Jirst class girls; "Annie Thomas, the Queen"; song, "The days of the week" Welsh song, Hen Wlad fy Nhadau"; hymn, "Hebrew Captive." During an interval Miss Noott, the second mistress, who assisted in the musical training of the children rendered a very pleasing solo. Miss Nellie Lewis was the accompanist. Rev. E. Nicholson Jones referred to the admirable way in which the infants had gone through the programme, and afterwards the visitors were sli.?w?, round the room and inspected the drawings in crayons and water-colours of the children. It was a revelation to see with what accuracy and taste the infants had shown in copying large drawings from the blackboard upon specially prepared crayon paper and into drawing books. Needless to say the work- manship of the little ones was greatly admired. Miss Emment lived at one time amongst the Welsh colonists in Patagonia, where she tilled a vacancy in a mixed school for a few months. From one of her then pupils, who is now preparing for a missionary career, Miss Emment recently received a letter from which we quote the following I shall ever remember the time when I attended your school in Gaiman. What pains you took with me My eyes often well with tears as I recall how thoughtless and mischievous I was. Yet your teaching and counsel left indelible impressions upon my youthful mind and heart, and as I purpose visiting" your neighbour- hood soon, I mean to avail myself of'the opportunity to thank you for your valuable lessons which have greatly helped me in my upward career."
Endorsement From Haver- west. Here is a striking endorsement of a story. Such local experiences as these interest us, for we have confidence in a neighbour's word. And our confi- dence is redoubled when we read such encouraging confirmation as this. Nearly foul" years had gone by since Mrs P. Davies, 22, Barn-steet, Haverfordwest, was cured by Doan's backache kidney pills, when she said I gladly confirm what I previously said about the good Doan's backache kidney pilla did me. I have such faith in them that I always keep some by me, and if after catching cold I get a slight pain across my kidneys, a few doses of the medicine put me right. I take pleasure in recommending the pills to others. In telling us of her illness and cure, Mrs Davies said:—"Off and on for a long time I had severe pains in my back and round my loins. My head used to be bid, and I lost my appetite. I was nervous and in a low way; I seemed to be full of wind. Many different medicines I tried, but they were unable to do me any good. My husbnnd got me some of Doan's backache kidney pills, and soon after commencing with them I began to get better. r have derived wonderful benefit from Doan's pills, and shall not fail to tell people about them. (Signed) P. Davies." Doan's Backache Kidney Pills are two shillings and ninepence per box (six boxes for thirteen shillings and ninepence). Of all chemists and stores, or post free, direct from Foster- ilicclellaii Co., 8 Wells-street, Oxford-street, London, W. Mrs Davies was cured by Doan's be sure that uou get DutAll,ki."
Local Failures. HAVERFORDWEST DEALER'S I AFFAIRS. NEAIZLY XI,000 DEFICIENCY. I The Pembrokeshire Bankruptcy Court was held at Pembroke Dock on Friday before the Registrar. A PROSTRATE BANKRUPT. David Williams, baker and grocer, of Hill Street, Haverfordwest, whose estate showed a deficiency of £\)012: Gd, was to have come up for his public examin- ation, but bankrupt was said to be prostrate with illness. His gross liabilities were set down at £;jS:2 4s OJ, aud failure bankrupt attributed to bad trade, ill-health, bad debts, and want of capital. The deficiency was accouuted for as follows :-Excess of assets over liabilities on Juue 12th, 1906, about X80 bad debts, £ 76 lis id; household expenses for self, wife, and three children, oue year, at 25s per week, X65 costs of execution and summonses, £1:3 2s Gd depreciation in stock, X9 7s lid. OFFICIAL RECEIVER'S OBSERVATIONS. The receiving order, says the Official Receiver ia his observations, was made on the debtor's own petition on the 12th June, which was filed in consequence of an execution having been levied on his effects. He was adjudged bankrupt on the same day. The execution has been withdrawn at the request of the Official R?eciver. The b:wkrupt, who is )0 years of age, states that ho took over the business of grocer and baker, formeily carried on by hIs father, in 1882, at which time he estimates that the liabilities exceeded the assets by about E t') With the exception of day book ledgers the bankrupt has kept no boo?s of account. The creditors shown as fully secured are the bankrupt's bankers in respect of overdraft and current account. They hold as security the deeds of two freehold cottages in Horn's Lane, Haverfordwest, and also the deeds of the shop and premises, No. 21, Hill Street. This property is estimated to rcalise a surplus of £011s UJ. The creditors shown as partly secured are 1 Bristol firm in respect of goods supplied. They hold a policy of assurauce effected in 100? for ?100 on the bank- rupt's life. The unsecured liabilities arc in respect of goods supplied to the business. The bankrupt states that he has a contingent interest in two shares in the Haverfordwest Starr Bowket Building Society, under which a sum of about X50 will be paid at the termination of the society, probably in ten years' time. No value is placed on this interest in the bankrupt's statement of affairs. The piano and certain other effects of the estimated value of £15 are claimed by the bankrupt's wire and daughter as having been bought with their own monies. EXAMINATION ADJOURNED. Mr A. D. Williams, of Haverfordwest and Fishguard, who appeared for the bankrupt, said that Mr David Williams had been paralysed and was now bedridden. The Official Receiver then asked for an adjournment of the case, remarking that it would probably be necessary to hold the examination at the house. He presumed the bankrupt would be well enough to be examined at the house. Mr Williams Oh yes. The examination was then adjourned. BUTCHER AND CATTLE DEALER'S AFFAIRS. IXf)47 DEFICIENCY. John Jones, butcher and cattle dealer, of 100, Dew Street, Haverfordwest, was publicly examined in bank- ruptcy. Bankrupt's gross liabilities were £ 1,147 5s Gd, and his deficiency was £ 917 33 7d. The causes of failure as alleged by bankrupt were Buying too dear, sickness of self and family, loss upon contracts and upon grazing cattle." His deficiency he accounted for as follows Excess of liabilities over assets on July 2nd, 190G, X600 nett loss since 2nd July, 1906, about X200 bad debts, £ o lis Gd household expenses of self, wife and two children at 40s per week, I tO I bank charges, £ 52 17s 9d total, X962 15s 3d. STATEMENT OF AFFAIRS. I The Official Receiver's observations were as follows "The receiving order was made on debtor's own petition on the 2nd inst., which he filed in consequence of pressure by creditors. He was adjudged bankrupt on the same day. The bankrupt (aged 27) states that he com- menced business as a butcher and cattle dealer at Milford Road in September, IDOl, with a capital of £HO. He remained at this address for three years, and then removed to his present address, where he has since carried on business. Up to February, IVOi, he traded in the name of his mother, Sarah Jones, the banking account being in her name up to that date. At the date of the receiving order a distress for six months' rent had been levied upon the household furniture. Nearly all the unsecured liabilities are in respect of live stock purchased since January last. The creditors shown as partly secured are the bankrupt's bankers, who hold a security for their overdraft of two policies of insurance on the bankrupt's life for £íiJO, also a memorandum charged upon the bankrupt's reversionary interest in the Equity, of redemption of three freehold houses and freehold land at Haverfordwest; also an order upon the Board of Guardians to pay them certain monies payable on the 29th June last, they also holding a personal guarantee to the extent of X200 given by a relative. A horse and trap used by the bankrupt in his business are claimed by a Carmarthen butcher, but as they were in the bank- rupt's reputed ownership they have been included as his effects. Beyond a memorandum book on the credit sales bankrupt has kept no books of account. Household furniture of the value of is claimed by the bankrupt's wife." The creditors who appeared personally in court were Mr Thomas lioberts, Druidston Mr John Gwyther, White House Mr John Owen, Nolton and Mr George Childs, Iloch farm. DISPUTED ITEMS. Official Receiver Since you filed your petition, I have had notice of five creditors, amounting to X60. The first is Mr Thomas, of Green Pla in, Xio 15s ? Bankrupt: I don't owe that. The next is Mr Thomas Thomas, Merlin's Hill, X3 7s P" —I don't owe him anything. He has been killing for me, and getting his money every week. Those two are sworn. Then there is Mr Robert Koberts, of Camrose, X8 3s lOd ?-I owe him about £ -). no more. There is also Mr Thomas Thomas, junior, Merlin's Hill, £ 9 12s r — I don't owe him anything. What about Mr W. Nicholas, saddler?—I owe him about £ 2. NO nOOKS. Official Receiver: You have been requested to furnish a cash account from January 1st last. Why haven't you done so -I have not any books. But you ought to remember since January last what monies you have paid and received ?—I cannot without the books. Do you go so far as to say that all monies you received you paid into the bank Yes. Are you sure of that ?—Yes, sir. Are you in the habit of paying to farmers and others money out of your pocket and not by cheque ?- Very seldom. Most of the money I paid by cheque. And you say that all monies you have received are to be accounted for by your pass book ?-I have paid out some sums in the market, but most of the deals were done by cheque. You must let me have an account of those which you have not paid into the bank. BUYING TOO DEAR. One of the causes of your failure was your buying too dear ?-Yes, I didn't have ready money. You had to buy dearer than the value then r- Y es, in order to get credit. Don't you think that was a very reckless way of carrying on business r- Well, I thought things might come a bit better. How much would you give on a single beast more than what you ought to simply because you didn't have the money to pay for it at the time ?— £ 1 more than it was worth—sometimes more and sometimes less. When did you commence on your own account?— About 1901. That was when your father died ?-No, he didn't die until last September. Did your father carry on business separately ?—No father was not out of bed for about 3!- years, and could do nothing. Was the business yours or your father's ?-Aline, from the time I started for myself. When father took bad he mushed up with it. You carried it on in your own name ?—Yes. Are you sure of that r- Yes. In whose name did you buy the cattle ?—My own. THE MOTHER'S SHARE. Was it the same business that you commenced in 1901. Why should that be carried on in your mother's name v— | My banker suggested that it should be carried on in my mother's name, aud I did that until February of this year. Let us be quite clear about this. What had your mother to do with it ? What part did she take in the business ?—She used to go to the market for herself, but she had nothing to do with my business. She used to buy with me and sell in the market. Was she to have the profit on what she sold berself ?- When there was a profit. Why was it carried on in her name ? The Registrar You said your bankers advised you to do it. Were they your lawyers ? It is not usual for bankers to give legal advice. There must be some mistake about that, I should think. Official Receiver: The bank account was in your mother's name until February last ?—Yes, sir. And the banking account showed a debit balance of about £ 329 ?—Yes, sir. In February the balance standing against your mother was transferred to youe-It was my account. It was only turned over into my name. Why should it have been in your mother's name ? Who issued the cheques ?-I did. From the time you commenced business ?—I used to sign the cheques per to Sarah or John Jones. I see. But tell me now, you owed the bank, £ 329. Who had had that money-your mother, or you, or your father ?—I had. Are you sure of that ?—Yes, sir. Although your mother's name was for that amount, you said you had the benefit of the money ?—Yes. Where is the bank book before this ?—You have the three there. Official Receiver: I don't quite understand this business I must say. The Registrar Not what you call clear. Receiver When your mother's indebtedness to the bank reached £3:2!J it was transferred on the 8th February to you, and a new account was opened in your name ?—It was I who carried on the business all the time. Why should there be any change ?—The bank wanted me to change it and give them some security. And didn't they ask you for some security before?— They had asked me, but they didn't have it. What security did you give them ?—My brother became surety for £ 200, and I gave them the Guardian Insurance policy. What deeds "did you give them?—I signed a paper giving them my share in father's estate. Have they got the deeds ?-Only the paper, sir. Where are the deeds of the property r- With Mr R. T. P. Williams. The Itegistrar They are mortgaged, I su^ppose ?— Yes, mortgaged at jCCOO. Receiver: You cannot tell me why the change was brought about except that they pressed you for security, and transferred the account from your mother's name to your own ?—Quite so. After that you paid the cheques out iu your owa uae r- yes, sir. Now nrc you able to tell the court on oath that your mother had no interest in the business carried on by you ? -The ouJy interest was she would have the meat with me and go to market aud sell it to help to get a living. There was no arrangement that she was to have a share of your profits ?—No. Whatever profits you were to make were to be your own Yes. The Registrar la your mother alive ?- Yes. Is she a woman of any property -.N 0, no. The bit there is after her days is to be divided among the children. Receiver She has a living interest in it ?—Yes. She has money ?—It isn't much. Debtor said that the loans were effected before his father died, and interest had to be paid on the £GOO and the XOO. The property brought in £10 or X15 a year. Receiver Only just a little left after paying interest. How does your mother live 'I-Shu goes to the market as before. Your mother buys meat from you and sells it in the market on Saturday ?- Yes. What would be the value of the meat she had ?— From £ 10 to £ 15 every week. She paid me the cost. Nothing due to you to-day r-Xotbing. Are you quite sure of that -Yes. Did she keep the profits of the sale ?—The profits would hardly be enough to keep them going. Never mind that.- Yes, she kept the profits. Registrar A nice way of living-to buy all this cattle from the farmers and hand them over to your mother and let her keep the profits. Bankrupt: I usually attended the market myself. I had a separate stall. Receiver: Whatever meat your mother had she paid you for "-Yes. Every Saturday ?—Yes. How was it done :At the close of the market would she pay you the money ?—That night. Or if I wanted money in the day time to pay anyone, I would have it then. The Receiver A sort of partnership. Baukrtipt It was no partnership. LOSSES OX CONTRACTS. Receiver. Well, it is unsatisfactory. You say you lost money on contracts. On what contracts have you lost money. I have lost money by selling meat to the butchers on the market. Would you enter into contract with the butchers to supply them with meat at so much for the year?- Yes, sir. With whom ? A good many of them would have meat at 61 a lb. all the year round. Whether you could buy it at that or not ?—Yes.' Wasn't that a very absurd thing to do?- Yes. The Registrar: No wonder he is in the Bankruptcy Court. Receiver: How many contracts did you have of that kind ?-Two or three. Debtor added that he often had to buy meat at 7d and sell it at 6d. Did the contract with the Guardians pay you.No. How much did you lose yearly on this contract f-I daresay I lost about £:20. Have you any sort of account which will show whether you lost or gained ?—No. How long have you been carrying on business with the Guardians ?—Five or six years. During that time can you say whether you made a profit or a loss ?—Never a profit. Then it must have been a loss ?-Yes. Don't you think that a very wrong thing:- Yes. And you come to the court to day with a deticency of 11,000, buying meat as you say and losing it on these contracts:- Yes. I XEYEU DRANK IX HIS LIFE. Are you a sober man ?—Never drank in my life. All the more strange that you should make these absurd bargains and contracts. Did your father do this before you ?— No, sir. Registrar What beef were you supplying at (id, Enghsh or foreign r-Our own country. Did you deal in American at all ?—No. Receiver What butchers did you supply in this way ? -White, Bridge-street, and Miss Harries, Woodbine. Bankrupt added that lamb was paid for at the market price. Receiver Have you been able to buy beef at a lower price than Gel per lb ?—Sometimes, but very seldom good beef. Registrar That made me think it was American. Bankrupt: You would get beef sometimes at 5d or 51d, but a very chance time you would get it for that. Receiver You admit you have been trading in a very reckless manuer ?- Y es. The Registrar asked whether thq beef was killed by motor cars ? (Laughter). Bankrupt said he had been in the habit of taking land for grazing, principally for store cattle. He held the fields up to last Michaelmas from the time he started business. Receiver: Did you undertake any of your father's liabilities at that time r-Father had £ 135 in the bank at the time, and I used it afterwards to pay some of his debts. Have you ever paid more than you had from your father?—No. Your father's estate doesn't owe you anything :-No. Can you tell me the amount of his liabilities that you discharged ?-He had £13,j in the bank, and another £ 45 in the post office, £ 180 altogether. Whad did you do with that r-1 paid that out on his debts. Did you pay more ?—No. How came your mother's name into the business r- They told me in the bank that it would be better to put her np.me to carry ou the business. How many years ago did they suggest that ?—About :31. 2 After you carried on the business sometime in your mother's name they suggested that you should carry it on in your name. ? It was when I opened a banking account that they suggested it should be in my mother's name. Did they give any reason for that ?-No. They preferred to trust your mother than you ?-I don't know, sir. Now was she a partner with you in any way except purchasing this meat on Saturday ?—In no way what- ever. Nearly all the debts now due are for goods bought during the last 12 months?—Yes. Debtor added that last September he had nearly £ 100 from his father, and he thought it would carry him through. Was that in addition to what you have told us before ? -Yes, sir. You estimate in your deficiency account that you were about iMO to the bad this time 12 months. It is only an estimate ?-That is all. Then you must admit that your deficiency has increased by tloo during the last year. Isn't that a very serious state of things :—No answer. You can understand me Yes, sir. What is your explanation ?-I had more owing than that this time 12 months. I am afraid you did not count that money you owed to the bank ?-No. Why didn't you. Did you look upon that as being due from your mother this time 12 months ;-No, sir. Why didn't you file your petition 12 months ago r-I thought to get through, sir. One of my brothers helped me, and the other promised to do so and didn't. Did you carry on an extensive business last year or was it reduced r—I thought to have made a profit but didn't do so. Am I to understand that by placing these securities at the bank you preferred them over your other creditors v— The bank promised to help me. Was that your only inducement ?—Yes. What is it you had after your father except this one- eighth in the houses and fields ?—Nothing. The remainder goes to your brothers ?—Brothers and sisters. And whatever value it is you have assigned it to the bank <—1 es. Bankrupt added that he had given a bill into the Uuaidians lip to the end of the quarter, and he had not supplied them with any meat since. He had had the use of the horse and trap claimed by the Carmarthen butcher, for two or three ironths. They were on his premises when he filed his petition. The chest of drawers and wardrobe claimed by his wife were given to her by her mother and uncle. A piano was claimed by Mr Fred Williams. He estimated that he lost A;200 in carrying on business last year, and that was an under-estimate if anything. With regard to a cheque of Mrs Phillips for £ 20 10s he paid it into the bank the day he received it. The Manager said he would write to Mrs Phillips about its being a collection. Receiver It was never entered to the credit of your banking account at all ?—I don't think so. The Official Receiver asked the creditors if there was anything in bankrupt's conduct about which they desired information. Mr Thomas Roberts (Druidston) said that if bankrupt had a deficiency of X600 twelve months ago, it was in the name of Sarah Jones. The Official Receiver replied that they had the bank- rupt's answer on that point. Asked how much he bought after his cheques were returned from the bank, bankrupt said about £ 45. Receiver You have got that money. Bankrupt No. I paid for one beast, and it cost £1., to file my petition. Bankrupt added that the Guardians' contract had been transferred to his mother at her request. She was not anxious to have the contract, but if his mother had not taken it, and the next contract would have been 2d or 3d a lb. more the creditors would have had to suffer, becahse the Guardians would have dsducted this from the money they owed him. The examination was adjourned. —
THE LATE REV. JAMES A. OWEN, M.A. TRIBUTE BY THE VICAR OF ST. MARY. In the course of his sermon on Sunday morning, based on the Epistle of the day (Romans VIII), the vicar of St. Mary (Rev. J. H. Davies, M.A.), in connection with the lesson on "Fatherhood and Sonship" referred in the following words to the late Rev. James Owan, M.A., of Cheltenham I cannot allow this morning to pass by without a sympathetic reference to one who closed so peacefully a life of strenuous service to humanity the other day. A few years ago the Rev. James Owen occupied this pulpit on the occasion of the Church of England Temperance Conference, when his true and stirring appeal for the shedding of the influence of good character on lives around '-lives which are more open to degrading temptations, more liable to give way and sink through weak resolutions, was very much felt, and is still remembered, I feel sure. So closely attached to our town by family ties, and being one of four sons who have done noble duty generally by their usefulness and literary attainments, we cannot help thinking at this sad time what a loss must be the death of one who had such a brilliant career at Oxford, and who used his knowledge as an energetic educationist in school and college at Oxford, and at Cheltenham, where, as a Broad Church. man of wide and extensive sympathies, the influence of his personality was much felt. In this alone he would not rest, but under a sense of the mission he had, he threw himself into slum life and work in Cheltenham and Nunhead for the amelioration of the condition of the poor, and laboured on several public bodies for the bettering of the working classes. He indeed possessed a sense of that true brotherhood to which I have just referred, and laboured hard to make such brotherhood a reality. He hated the shams of life, and endeavoured to disclose the beauty of a real and earnest life and to unfold the beauties of true goodliness, by the way he lived, by the faith which ho embraced, and by the example he showed. Sir Charles Philipps read the lessons.

Presentation to Miss Anderson, B.A.—A very pleasing event took place at Taskcr's High School ] on Monday last, when the pupils presented to Miss Anderson, their head-mistress, a very handsome dressing case, as a token of their appreciation of her kindness and the manner in which she has devoted herself to their inter- ests for the past four years. Miss Anderson was greatly touched by the gift, and thanked the girls fcr their present, remarking that it would always remind her of them and of her stay in Haverfordwest.

Fire in City Road.— W orshippers in the various churches and chapels were startled on Sunday evening by an alarm of fire. Mr Rogers, the captain of the brigade, and some other members left St. Mary's as the vicar was ascending the pulpit, and several other fire- men hurried from the Moravian Chapel, where special services were being held. It was found that the outbreak had occurred on the premises of Mr Davies, tailor, City Road. A policeman and his wife, who are hero on a holiday, were walkiug up City Road when they noticed the tire in Mr Davies' shop, and the news rapidly spread- ing, Mr Bowen Thomas, of St. Martin's, gave the alarm. Mr Davies and his family were fetched from chapel, and he and some friends were able to subdue the fire before it had assumed serious proportions, and by the time the lire- men were on the spot, it had been entirely extinguished by means of buckets. Some rolls of cloth had been damaged, and the skirting board burnt, but no serious loss was sustained. How the five originated is a mystery, as there had been no fire in the house for a fortnight. It is supposed that there must have been spontaneous combustion due to some matches being on the premises. Annual Outing of the Girls' Guild.—The summer outing of the Girls' Guild took place on Thurs- day last, when Broad Haven looking its brighest and best, was visited. A large number availed themselves of the invitation, and six brakes started from Barn-street shortly after half-past one. Arriving at the Haven the girls strolled along the beach, climbed the rocks, after- wards assembling in the schoolroom for tea, which had been kindly given by Miss Ada E. Thomas. Mrs Brock's catering gave every satisfaction, and afterwards a service, presided over by the president, Mr Sydney J- Rees, was held in the Baptist chapel, when an earnest and thoughtful address was given by Mrs Edwards, of Thornton, on The certainty of our life's spiritual j aspect, or the spiritual aspect of the Free Church Guild." Mrs Edwards exhorted the girls to keep their characters pure and bright, as there would be a resurrection of characters as well as persons. The president also de- livered a short practical and humorous address, and the Revs Owen Jacobs, E. Nicholson Jones, S. L. Connor, and B. Edwards (Thornton), also took part in the ser- vice. The return journey was made about half-past eight. Hook Tenantry Entertained.—On Saturday afternoon last Mr and Mrs John Harcourt Powell enter- tained their Hook tenantry with their wives and families to a sumptuous tea to celebrate the birth of their son and heir. Tea was served at West Hook, which looked en fete with its tasteful displays of bunting, Hags, and ever-' green arches, bearing the heartiest of greetings to one of the moat popular and generous of Pembrokeshire land owners. Besides Mr and Mrs Harcourt Powell there were also present: Mr W. G. Eaton Evans (the agent), Rev. Henry Evans (rector), Rev. T. J. Walters (con- gregational minister), Mr J. S. Roberts, J.P.
