A Cyclist was explaining to a Sunbeam rider how important it was to be able to adjust the Driving Bearings of one's own Bicycle. The latter after expressing regret that he had never been inquisitive as to the inner workings of his steed, chal- lenged the other to a day's riding, in order that they might test the re- spective merits of their machines. So they started off together and rode pleasantly for some miles. Then the first Cyclist called a halt in order that he might make some necessary adjustments to his machine. "No," said the Sunbeam rider, we are tes- ting the Bicycles, not the mechanical knowledge of their riders. I have never learned to adjust my Sunbeam, because it never needs it." And he rode on. MORAL.—Bicycles are made for various purposes, but the Sun- beams and the other Cycles sold by S. & F. Green are made to be ridden. Do not fail to call and see their large stock of high-grade Bicycles. The Choice of the Correct System when Buying a Separator. On the Market there are at present so many Styles of SEPARATORS that it may bo difficult for a Farmer to choose the right one. When he is led by false economy he may unfortunately choose a Machine, which, although its first cost is apparently less than the Mey's," will in a short time DOUBLE the original difference in price between our Machine of strong make and the cheaper system u by repairs. THE ORIGINAL Mey's owing to its strong con- struction, guarantees greatest durability. It works uniformally, no Shocks or Vibration of any kind, thereby affording a high degree of efficiency and very light running. r- ) p gr" U. j «m SOLE AGENTS- Before Buying try our Original Mey's with Free Suspended Bowl ￼ rlnning in Ball Bearings.

We are sorry the error occurred. Organ Recital. — There was a crowded congregation at St. Mary's Church ou Sunday evening on the occasion of an organ recital, given after the even- song by Dr. Arthur J. Greenish, F.R.C.O. The Magni- ficat and Nunc Dimittis at the evensong were sung to Dr. F. R. Greenish's beautiful composition, and the concluding voluntary was beautifully played by Dr. Arthur J. Greenish. The recital was a rare treat the interpretations of the various pieces being very realistic and impressive. The choir gave a very tasteful rendering of the anthem "Hark, hark, my soul" (Speer), Mr Sydney Bowler taking the solo part with his usual ability. Variety Entertainment.—There was a large gathering at St. Mary's schoolroom on Wednesday even- ing on the occasion of a variety entertainment. The entertainment was arranged by Miss Isabelle Skinner in aid of the piano funds. The vicar Rev. J. H. Davies presided. Every item was thoroughly enjoyed, especially the sketches Our Betty in which the characters were taken by Misses E. Burgess, I. Skinner, S. A. Rogers, G. Edwards, E. Robinson, and G. Jenkins, and "Bumps." The characters in the latter were taken by Misses I. Skinner, G. Edwards, and S. A. Rogers. The Hoop Drill by a party of little children under the direction of Miss S. A. Rogers was also well performed. Other items were Pianoforte solos, Miss Edwards and Miss Jenkins duetts, violin and piano, Misses G. and M. Warren solos, Miss McDonald, of Pembroke Dock, and Miss V. Davies; recitations, Misses L. and V. Davies. The programme terminated with the singing of "Land of My Fathers" by Miss McDonald.

The chairman, Mr H. Rule Owen, was re-elected, the meeting paying a high tribute to the excellent services he had rendered the society in the past. The vice-chairmen, Mr Herbert J. E. Price, and Mr W. G- Eaton-Evans were also re-appointed. Mr F. D. Phillips suggested that Mr James Adams, who had for several years performed the clerical work in connection with the show should be appointed acting secretary, and at the urgent solicitation of the meeting, Mr Phillips consented to act as hon. secretary. The schedule was then gone through and revised, several classes being omitted as it was considered that the limited support accorded to certain sections did not justify such an extended classification as was given last year. Prendorgast Juvenile Choir.—The members of this choir gave a very enjoyable entertainment in Hill Park Schoolroom on Thursday evening last. There was a large attendance and Mr W. J. Edwards, City road, the conductor of the choir, is to be congratulated upon the success achieved.

YEOMANRY IN CAMP. On Thursday morning some 90 men belonging to the B Squadron of the Pembrokeshire Yeomanry left Haver- fordwest for their annual training at Llandovery. Before proceeding to camp the men were inspected by Col. O. H S. Williams, the men's troop leaders including Lieuts. Yorke and Woodcock. After the inspection they marched through the town via Hill Street, High Street, New Bridge to the Bridge Meadow, where the adjutant, Capt. Kent, saw them put through a number of cavalry evolutions. The Brigade camp at Llandovery is now in full swing and the men are settling down to their work. So far the Yeomanry regiments have confined themselves principally to troop and squadron drill. The Glamorgans paraded on Sunday morning, and marched to Llandigat Church, where a special service was held, the sermon being preached by the regimental chaplain, the Rev. Davies, of St. Hilary. Col. Venables Llewellyn presented a long-service medal to Staff-Sergt.- Major Challis, of A (Swansea) Squadron, who has spent 19 years in the Regular Service and was severely wound- ed in the seige of Ladysmith.

NOTES OF THE WEEK. A TAX ON INDUSTRY. It came as a surprise to most people to know that the alternative to a tax on milk carts doing business in liaverfordwest was an additional penny rate. For sometime past the more optimistic councillors had led the public to expect, not an increase, but a reduction in the rates. We were constantly reminded of the accelerated reduction of the over- draft, of the saving which would be effected by the introduction of the suction gas plant, and of the happy financial position resulting from the expiry of certain loans. Now we are disillusioned, and in order to avoid an increased rate the council has taken the extreme step of taxing an ill-requited industry by imposing a toll of Is 6d on milk carts. Members of the Corporation adopted the unusual and some- what undignified course of imploring the milk vendors not to advance the price of milk to the con- s"mer, and even threatened them with the maximum impost if they sought to re-coup themselves by trans- ferring the burden to the consumer. Even a novice in political economy must know that with free com- petition and a comparatively unrestricted supply prices always find their natural level. Tolls are only justifiable when market accommodation is provided, so that the only reason for this milk tax is the wear and tear of the streets-an astounding proposition. Originally it was intended that the toll should have a Protective effect, but of course the Board of Trade could not consent to any such crude preference. To discriminate between people on the basis of one living within and the other without the Borough is worthy of the intelligence which found expression in all the municipal preferences and exclusions of our grandfathers. It has its origin in the curious fallacy that the man who trades with you is, not a benefactor, but is trying to inflict on you an injury. Let it be explained, for the sake of the uninitiated in these matters, that to be a benefactor is not to be consciously altruistic. People carry on business, primarily, for their own interest, and not ( with any design to benefit their neighbours, but the service is none the less real. Those who trade confer a mutual service on each other. A tax on industry is always objectionable, but by fixing it at Is 6d each milk cart per week the Council hopes that the incidence will not fall on the consumer. But whether it does or not, does not affect its justice. The milk vendors will have to find the extra X3 18s a year, and as the industry is not a very flourishing one, their expenses will have to be curtailed to that extent. Someone must suffer. The Licensing trade has a monopoly and is therefore a fit industry for taxation. But the milk trade belongs to a totally different category, and milk is a prime necessity of life. As we have said, from the economic point of view, the provision of a market alone justifies tolls, tl)e provision of and we are surprised that professedly Free Traders have lacked the insight to appreciate this. It only tends to show that with so many Free Trade is merely a shibboleth and not a reasoned economic faith, and the Council thoroughly deserve in this matter the ridicule of the Western Mail." THE GUARDIANS AND THE DOG. J We are glad to notice that several Guardians pro- tested against the request to consider in committee a complaint from the Medical Officer of Health regarding an important official. This kind of request is coming a little too often of late from individual guardians and officials, but after the expression of opinion 0U Wednesday probably less will be heard of it in future. The Guardians should not be troubled with merely personal matters but the keeping of a i savage dog at the Workhouse and the prohibition of the Master from keeping any dog in future, vicious or otherwise, is of interest to others besides the parties immediately concerned. It appears that for some years past the Workhouse Master has been keeping a dog which took a particular dislike to Dr. Williams, who fortunately never visited the Work- house without taking the precaution of arming himself with a stick or strong umbrella. It is generally advisable to be thus protected even when no savage dogs are expected, but in this case it does seem to us that Dr. Williams had just cause of com- plaint. The other evening the dog bit his servant, thus showing that the animal was a really vicious one. It was immediately destroyed; but if the dog was necessary on account of tramps it should have been kept under due restraint. There was not even the usual notice to Beware of the dog But in prohibiting the Master from keeping any kind of dog the Guardians, we think, have now gone to the opposite extreme. Dogs are kept at most Work- houses, and we do not see why they should necess- arily become vicious. THE LOCAL TRAIN SERVICE. One or two matters of considerable public importance were dealt with by the Milford Haven Council at their last meeting. After a prolonged delay, allowing of time for the fullest investigations, the G.W.R. Company have now definitely refused to improve the local train service. Milford Council partly anticipated the Railway Company's reply for they called attention to the large revenue which the Company derives from Milford Haven and hoped that in considering the question of increased facilities regard would not be paid exclusively to the number of passengers likely to avail themselves of this service. It is only the through trains that are at all crowded, except on special occasions, and while no one expects the G.W.R. Company to consider themselves a philan- thropic undertaking, it cannot be denied that the inconveniences suffered by passengers at the present time are very annoying. It was hardly necessary for a Railway Company to remind us that they are primarily a business concern, but surely the most highly developed business instinct would regard it as to their interest to give a town, from which they draw enormous receipts, a good local service even though it involved some slight pecuniary sacrifice. In these days of railway agitation it is well to keep the public from any feeling of inj ustice, and we are bound to say that Milford has made out a strong case for some improvement in the facilities granted. The suggestion has now been made that a local road motor service should be run between Milford Haverfordwest and Neyland. A RECREATION GROUND AND A PARK. I While Milford is anxious, and rightly so, to provide a recreation ground for the children and the young people of that town, the Haverfordwest Improve- ments Committee are taking steps with a view to adding to our numerous attractions a public park. Haverfordwest, however, is surrounded by so many beautiful walks that we confess to a want of enthu- siasm over this park scheme. In big towns parks are invaluable from a health point of view: they are the lungs of congested districts, and afford the only opportunity to many of enjoying pure air and of coming in close contact with the beauties of the recurring seasons. But in country towns we are not cut off from nature, and from any part of Haverford- west people can be in the open country in a few minutes. More important is the preservation of the present walks and the keeping of Scotcbwell clear of all rowdyism. At present it is, more especially on Sunday evenings, the resort of undesirable characters, and the Improvements Committee have appealed to the Press to help them in a matter which is becoming a scandal to the town. Far be it from us to minimise the influence of the Press, but we are afraid that any appeal which we may make to those responsible for this unseemly conduct would be quite without effect. Only a policeman patrolling the walk would preserve order and decency, and we hope that the request which the Committee are now making to the Chief Constable will be readily granted. .————————
ROSEMARKET. There having been much extra expense incurred in removing and levelling obstacles in order to join the new burial ground to the old churchyard and other necessary improvements, a concert was held in the schoolroom on Wednesday, May 26th. In consequence of the unpropitious state of the weather (which was greatly needed and very beneficial to the country) the audience was small. The concert musically was a great success, although some intended singers could not attend. The following was the programme-most of the per- formers answered to encores :-Pianoforte duett, Mrs Thomas and Miss Llewellyn; song, A little boy called Taps," Mr R John song, "SwAetheart May," Mr J Russan song, "I want a girl," Mr William Rees; song, selected, Mr Jenkins song, Genevieve," Mr J M Thomas; song, "So did I," Mr Cattanach; song, Sammy," Mr W Nash isong, "The place where the old horse died," The Vicar song, Anona," Mrs B Cattanach; song, "My first wife," Mr Jenkius; song, There's none to be compared with you," Mr R John; song, Down where the Colorado flows" Mr J M Thomas; song, She cost me seven and sixpence," Mr J Russan. The usual votes of thanks were passed to the Vicar who is a genial chairman and to Mrs Thomas (Vicarage), Mrs Cattauach (Rosemarket), and Miss Herbert (Neyland), were the accompanists while Miss K Mathias (Honeyborough), played at the dance after.

"n. Presentation to Mr. H. E. E. Philipps. I INTEl-ESTING GATHERING. PICTON CASTLE TENANTS AND THEIR LANDLORD. A- i__U gauucnug uem at me salutation THTo7tel, Haverfordwest, on Saturday afternoon, when the tenantry of the H?veifordwest rent audit district of the Picton Castle Estate presented Mr H. E. E. Philipps with a massive silver centre piece, a pair of silver salvers, and an illuminated address in oak frame. Mr H. E. E. Philipps was accompanied by Sir Charles and Lady Philipps. Mr Edward White, Uzmaston, presided, and said that the tenantry of the Haverfordwest rent audit district of the Picton Castle Estate had enteitained towards Sir Charles and Lady Philipps and family sentiments of the highest esteem and warmest appreciation and they had invited them there that afternoon in order to make a presentation to Mr H. E. E. Philipps on his approaching marriage. They wished Mr Philipps and his bride every happiness, and in token of their esteem he asked his acceptance of the silver centre piece, the silver salvers and the illuminated address. He read the illuminated address as follows:- To Helir!! Edward Erasmus Philipps Esa. The tenants of the Picton Castle Estate in the town of Haverfordwest and in the parishes of Boulston, Camrose, Freystrop. Llanstadwell, the hamlet of St. Martin's, Slebech, Uzmaston, Walwyn's Castle and Wiston (in Pembrokeshire) desire in view of your approaching marriage to offer you their heartiest congratulations and their best wishes for the happiness and prosperity of your intended bride :and yourself, and in token of their good- will the tenants ask your acceptance as a wedding present of the accompanying centre piece. The tenants in making this present desire futher to recognise the cordial and friendly relations which have from time to time existed on the Picton Castle Estate between the owner of the estate and the tenantry, and which existing to-day in undiminished force will, they feel sure, continue for many generations to Come. 3rd June 1909." In asking Mr Philipps's acceptance of the gifts, Mr White, on behalf of the subscribers, hoped that Mr Philipps and his bride would be spared for many years and that the presentation would add another link to the strong chain of friendship which already existed between the Picton Castle family and the tenantry. Mr H. E. E. Philipps said he felt very deeply impressed by the very touching remarks which Mr White had made concerning his father and mother, and also by the kind reference to his future wife, Miss Gwynne-IIughes. He was greatly indebted to them for their generosity in coming forward and giving him such handsome presents. As they all knew the tenantry of the Picton Caste Estate had been reduced during the last twelve months, his father and mother having most reluctantly to sell some of the property in order to pay off some of the charges. In spite of the reduced number of tenantry they had come forward and given him, if possible, a better gift than on the occasion of his coming of age. He need nut say how much he felt their kindness, for that was not the only gift he had received from the tenantry. It only showed what a generous body they were, and he mentioned how on the previous day he was the rocipient from the tenantry in the Narberth district of a magnificent salver, which would do credit to any house in the United Kingdom. Needless to say he would always treasure their gifts as amongst his most valuable possessions. They were a token of the good feeling which existed between them, and he hoped that this happy relationship would continue for many years, so that when the time came (which he hoped was a long way off) when he should be their landlord he should be as good and as popular as his father. (Applause). At times like the present it was rather difficult to express one's feelings everybody was so generous and open-hearted, and he had been the recipient of so many kind acts in Haverford- west that he could hardly nnd words to express his deep gratitud;. He assured them, however, that he would value nothing more than these gifts from the tenantry of the splendid aud magnificent estate to which he was proud to belong. (Applause.) Sir Charles Philipps also returned thanks for fthe kind words which had been said about Lady Philipps and himself. It was a very great pleasure and privilege to meet the tenants of the old estate, and he honestly and conscientiously believed that no estate on the face of the earth had got a nicer lot of tenantry or one that worked more cordially and happily with their landlords. That was not his day, but he thanked them sincerely for their kind words and for the magnificent presents they had given his son. He hoped they would remain in the room to drink long life and happiness to Mr Philipps and his wife. The toast was afterwards drunk. The silver centre piece was supplied by Mr C Sydney Davies, jeweller, Bridge-street, Haverfordwest. A POPULAR WEDDING. PRESENTATION TO THE BRIDE. The marriage of Mr Henry Erasmus Edward Philipps, son of Sir Charles and Lady Philipps, and heir elect to the Picton Castle Estate, and Miss Victoria Gwynne- Hughes, daughter of Mr J. W. Gwynne-Hughes, J.P., D.L., will take place at Llandilo parish church to-morrow. So enthusiastic are the tenants of all the combined estates over the forthcoming marriage that they purpose having a perfect gala day to-morrow, particularly in the Llandilo district. Yesterday afternoon the tenants of Mr Gwynne-Hughes foregathered in his beautiful grounds at Llandilo to present costly pieces of plate and other suit- able mementoes to the charming bride-elect, who, it is interesting to note, is the godchild of Princes Victoria Adolf Schaumberg-Lippe, the sister of the present German Emperor. Miss Gwvnne-Hughes's mother ia the daughter of Mr George Henfrey, of Villa Botti, Sarzana, Italy, and Mrs Gwynne-Hughes's sister married Colonel Gwynne-Hughes, J.P., D.L., of Glancothi, cousin of the Squire of Tregeyb. On Tuesday afternoon Mr John Phillips, Caerleon, presented Miss Gwynne-Hughes with a massive silver kettle on a stand on behalf of the tenants of the Corngafr estate. So anxious, said he, were they to reach Tregeyb, that they drove all the way to St. Clears district in a motor Cttr, and one and all wished most fervently that the young couple who were embarking on life together would emulate their devoted parents, who were held in the greatest esteem by all their tenantry. The Forest tenants had a deputation at Tregeyb on the same occasion, and from them Miss Hughes received a beautiful silver fern pot, wnich she acknowledged with much gratitude. She reverted to the kindness evinced by the same tenants four years ago, when she came of age. Then the district rejoiced exceedingly, and made both her dear father and mother exceedingly happy. Mr H. E. E. Philipps, in acknowledging the marks of esteem, alluded to the warm reception which he, too, had received from the tenants oi Gorngafr and Brechfa. He had known Miss Gwynne- Hughes now for many years, and her few bad points—if they might so be characterised—were submerged by her numerous good qualities. (Hear, hear, and loud applause.) Subsequently the household staff, tenants of the Ffairfach estate, and friends presented an elaborately framed address, with silver plate, and the Llandilo Town gave the bride-elect a silver centre-piece. Both father and mother of Miss Gwynne-Hughes were touched at the kindness evinced towards their daughter. Particularly affecting was the expression of the workhouse inmates, who, to show their love for the family, had collected pennies so that they could have a presentation all their own. The Ffairfach children, too, had imitated their example, although their parents had shown such good feeling at the choice of their gifts. The bride's father owns estates at Panddu (North Wales), Tregeyb, Fforest, and Corngafr (Carmarthen- shire.)

Howard, authority has been received to deposit the old colours of the Pembrokeshire Royal Field Reserve Artillery in St. Mary's Parish Church, Haverfordwest. Mr Howard wrote to the War Office on the subject, and also induced the Mayor to approach Mr W. F. Roch with the object of bringing influence to bear upon the War Office Authorities, and the result is that the request has now been granted. A special service will be arranged for the reception of the colours on the morning of Sunday, June 13. Meteorological Register. Taken at St. Ann's Head for the week ending 8 a.m. May 31st. 1909.

Otter Hunt. The Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire otter hounds met on the Castle Square, Haverfordwest, on Whit-Monday, and the pack at once proceeded to Haroldstone, where they were met by the master, Mr U. D. Protheroe, who was accompanied by his brother, Mr Edward Protheroe. Here the hounds were put in, and an effort to draw was made down Denant Brook and hack to Bolton Hill Bridge. From here they drew to Pope Hill Bridge, and thence to John- ston pond, but they failed to kill, and the hunt was concluded, the party proceeding homeward by train. The hounds will shortly again visit Haverfordwest, when they will hunt the big riv'Jr at the Paper Mills. Empire Day.Empire Day, May the 24th, was celebrated by the boys of the Haverfordwest Brigade, who mustered in full force with flags Hying The Brigade assembled on St. Thomas' Green at 7.30 p.m. and after going through physical drill with rifles they marched off, the band playing Soldiers of the King." The route was from the Green, through Shipman's Lane, Dew Street, High Street, to the Castle Square, where they were halted for a short rest. Then through Bridge Street to Swan Square and back, where they were dismissed. The band remained to piny in the Square, which was greatly admired by the public and concluded with the National Anthem. Owing to the unavoidable absence of Capt. Wright, which was very much regretted, their Hon. Instructor, Sergt. Ma jor Pearce was in com- mand. The boys looked very smart and their marching was splendid. Marloes Baptist Chapel. The annual tea was held on Whit Monday, and was very largely attended. In the evening, an entertainment was given by the choir and Sunday School children, under the leadership of Mr Isaac Rees. The programme consisted of recitations, anthems, solos, duets, and instrumental pieces, all of which were much enjoyed and appreciated. Mr and Mrs Young, of St. Bride's, and Mr Evans, of Pyle, also rendered very able assistance in the singing, and Miss John, of Dale, efficiently presided at the organ. The chair was occupied by Mr Meyler Thomas, of Ynysyplwm, who has for many years rendered this kind service for the Marloes church. During the interval between the tea and entertainment games were indulged in, in a field kindly lent by Mr James, Marloes Court. The farmers, as on former occasions, made generous gifts of butter, milk, &c. The day's proceedings were of a most successful and enjoyable character. Broad Haven Baptist Chapel. The Sunday School anniversary services were held here on Sunday last. Professor Owen, B.A., B.D., Carmarthen, preached in the morning while instead of the usual evening service a sacred concert was given. The choir rendered several of the hymns and tunes included in the last Baptist festival programme, which it is hoped, will be adopted in the future; while the children sang several pieces from soogs and solos, and songs of praises. In addition solos were given by Miss Edith Williams, Mr W. Jones, and Mr J. II. Davies. A quartette was sweetly sung by Miss E. Williams, Miss Page and Messrs W. Warlow, and W. Jones. Master Hugh Jones recited the 8th psalm very distinctly at the commencement of the service. Professor Owen conducted the service and gave a very interesting address to the children. The collections at both services were very good. Miss Lalla Brock pre- sided at the organ. Troublesome Pedlar Locked Up.—At the Haverfordwest police court yesterday, before Mr T. H. Rule Owen and Mr T H. Thomas, a pedlar named John Murray, who appeared with his face badly bruised, was charged with having been drunk and disorderly on the Old Bridge on the previous day. Defendant admitted the charge of drunkenness only, and P.S. Morgan told the court that defendant had been ejected from the Old Bridge Spirit Vaults and was creating a disturbance. There was a big crowd there at the time, consisting of men, women and children, and in consequence of the de- fendant's conduct a man Rprang out from the crowd and knocked Murray down. Defendant refused to go away on being requested, and as he continued the use of very bad language, he was taken into custody. On the way to the police station he became very violent, striking out and kicking like a madman.—Defendant declared that he went away quietly, and asked whether it was reasonable to suppose that the Sergeant could have taken him to the police station unaided if he were violent. He added that the man who had knocked him down had previously insulted his wife, and if the bench overlooked this offence he promised that it should not occur again. A fine of 5s inclusive was imposed, with seven days to pay and seven days in default. Tiers Cross Chapel. The anniversary services of Tier's Cross Chapel were held last Sunday, when the Rev. Lewis Price, Zion's Hill, officiated morn- ing and evening. The services were well attended and especially in the evening, and Mr Price's ministry was greatly appreciated. The annual tea meeting was held on the previous Thursday afternoon, when the children of the Sunday School had their usual free treat, and between the children and the adults a good company sat down at the tables, which were presided over by the following ladies —Tvtiss Fanny Morris and Misses Phillips & Evans, Robeston Miss Florence May Williams, The Manse; Miss Bessie Owens, Quarry Hall Miss Alice Jones' Bolton Hill; Mrs Griffiths, Bolton Hill Mill; and Miss Griffiths, Hogks, and many other young friends helping. In the evening a concert was given, the Rev. F. J. Harries, St. Ishmael's, presiding. The following ladies and gentlemen took part: Miss Ella Rees, Miss Hewitt, Mr Sam Rogers and Mr George Davies, Haverfordwest; Miss Ira Francis and Miss Elsie Cole (elocutionists), Milford Haven Mr Fred Williams accompanied all the singers with his usual skill and effectiveness. All the singers and the elocutionists did their work admirably, and their services were very highly appreciated. Mr Williams, the minister, in rendering thanks to the different parties who contributed so efficiently to make their annual tea and concert such a success, voiced the feelings of all the audience in saying that it was one of the most successful and pleasant concerts they ever had on such an occasion. Death of Mr. Thomas Russell.— We regret to announce the death of Mr Thomas Russell, which occurred at his residence, Dew Street, Haverfordwest, on Sunday evening. Death was the result of a paralytic seizure on the previous Wednesday morning, and at the advanced age of 79 and following a severe illness about two years ago, no one expected that the end could be long delayed. Deceased, who was one of the best known aud most highly esteemed tradesmen in Haverfordwest, was a native of Conduit, Hubberston, and was for many years engaged as a shipwright on a line of steamships plying between Plymouth and Bombay. Coming to Haverfordwest in 1854 he entered into partnership with the late Mr John Price as a painter, paperhanger, and house decorator. Mr Price died some 20 years ago. but the business was still carried on under the style of Price & Russell. Three years ago, Mr and Mrs Russell celebrated their golden wedding, and it is interesting to re-call how arrangements had been made on that occasion for the happy aged couple to again go through the marriage ceremony at church. Mrs Russell, how- ever, becoming indisposed was unable to venture out, and the marriage service was gone through at their house. Mrs Russell shortly afterwards passed away, but Mr Russell recovered from his severe attack and regained a great deal of his old energy. He was down street as late as yesterday week. Deceased was a faithful member of the Wesleyan Church, and a Freemason since 1863. He became past master of the local lodge of Masons in 1867, and was probably the oldest past master in Wales. He also took a keen interest in the upkeep of St. Mary's Cemetery, and mainly through his efforts repairs were carried out from time to time. The funeral will take place to-morrow (Thursday) afternoon, the cortege leaving the house at 2.30 for St. Mary's Cemetery. °
