NOTES OF THE WEEK. A SNAP VOTE. A month ago the Town Council passed a resolution in favour of inserting a summary of the Corpora- tion's financial statement and the Borough Accoun- tant's report in the local newspapers. It was felt that at the present time it was desirable that the ratepayers should be made fully acquainted with the financial position of the Corporation. Mr Warren's report was also of an important character, and Mr Councillor Llewellin, who introduced the subject, adduced several excellent reasons why the public should be educated in, or at least made acquainted with, the principles of Corporation finance,-how the various departments stood at the present time, and the efforts made of recent years to reduce balances and wipe out loans. It was pointed out that many claims bad been made against the Corporation this year, and it was suggested that a number of rate- payers seemed to be under the impression that pay- ments were made out of some fund other than that provided by the ratepayers themselves. As a Municipal Corporation, the Town Council, unlike the County and District Councils, are not com- pelled by any statutory enactment, to publish their balance sheet. It is true that many Corporations, interpreting their duties in a wider democratic sense, do publish these statements. Still, it is an entirely optional procedure on their part. Before issuing the statement, the Town Council invited quotations, and those given were, we understand, extremely moderate-far below the scale price for statements of this kind. However, at their last meeting, and without rescinding the previous reso- lution, the Council in committee decided not to issue the statement. There was only a bare quorum present, and the Council might, we think, have shown a little more respect for the views of the majority than to pass all irregular resolution by means of a snap vote. Had the Corporation always shown such a keen disposition to save over trifles, the rates in Haverfordwest would not be standing at their present figure. AGRICULTURAL INSTRUCTOR'S LUNCHEON. I It is a common saying that public bodies will vote away thousands of pounds without demur, but they will wrangle for hours over the expenditure of a few pounds or shillings. By a majority of one, a sub-committee of the County Education Authority have decided not to allow Mr Grant, the able agri- cultural instructor, 2s 6d for luncheon when he is travelling on business connected with his depart- ment. The sorely distressed ratepayers have at last a gleam of relief, and should be devoutly thankful to the economical members of the Committee Mr Grant is not likely to feel the want of his luncheon, but we should have thought that the teaching of agriculture in a county like this was of sufficient importance for the instructor to be allowed reasonable hotel expenses. To curtail allowances in this manner is not the way to encourage initiative and enterprise. '.if MR. E. ROBINSON'S SCHEME. The important scheme propounded by Mr E. Robinson to bring the Joint Counties' Asylum up- to-date deserves n.ost careful consideration. It is framed both in the interests of the ratepayers and of the patients, who, when they lose their reason and their individuality, are reduced to a living death. Briefly, Mr Robinson's scheme provides for the utilisation of the Medical Superintendent's house for a superior class of private patients who would pay from 35s to 50s a week for their maintenance. It appears that there is not in the whole Principality an asylum for the reception of private patients. Mr Robinson estimates that to carry out all the improvements be desires, which includes the pur- chase of sixty acres of land adjacent to the Asylum, would mean a capital expenditure of X19,000, But by adopting his scheme the receipts would be con- siderably increased. The money could be borrowed for a period of 21 years, the repayment of principal and interest averaging £1,253 per annum. The annual receipts Mr Robinson estimates at t3,262, and the annual expenditure at £ 2,945, which leaves, in addition to paying off the loan and meeting all expenses in working the establishment for private patients, a profit of £ 307. This, of course, is based on the assumption that the Asylum will possess the maximum number of private patients. Even if there was no profit on the private patients, the re- payment of interest and the provision of a sinking fund, would only amount to a farthing in the The improvements which Mr Robinson desires to effect are certainly worth such a smull demand as that. MR. WALTER *ROCH'S PEAL. I In the House of Lords on Thursday the Places of Worship (Enfranchisement) Bill was read a second time. There is thus every prospect of the measure becoming law this Session. Mr Walter Roch took up the Bill which Sir Samuel Evans was obliged to drop when he quitted the Parliamentary arena, and by an adroit move he was able to demand a quid pro quo from the Bishops. It is said that the zealous and enterprising member for Pembrokeshire discovered that the Bishops themselves had just lostered a Bill of their own which aimed at the division of Episcopal Sees in the future without ging through the irksome process of obtaining legislative sanction. Mr Roch promptly blocked the Sheffield Bishopric Bill, which had been sent down to the Commons. Bishops are quick to catch the significance of a move, and they at once painfully realised that if the Member for Pembrokeshire persisted in his opposi- tion their favourite little Bill was doomed. Negotia- tions were at once set afoot with Mr Roch, who intimated that he would only consent to withdraw his blocking motion on the understanding that the Bishops gave an undertaking to pitss the Chapel Sites Bill through the Lords. To this the Bishops consented, and both Bills will now be ensured passage into law. The deal is a distinct triumph for Mr Rocb, who thereby enhances his Parliamentary prestige.
LOCAL AND OTHER NEWS. I Special Offer.—Lewis, Castle Square, has a range of holiday suitings at a price that will suit your holiday. John Jones & Co., High Street, have a few sets of their specially cheap line in Gig Harness left. An early call is necessary to secure a set.

Scott, postmaster, reports the following promotions and additions to his staff Mr J* P. Treadgold, overseer, to the rank of superintendent; Mr W. M. Thomas, supervising sorting clerk and telegraphist, to the rank of overseer; Mr F. T. Arnold (late of Haverfordwest), supervising sorting clerk and telegraphist, to the rank of overseer. Three additional Borting clerks and tele- graphists have also been aut-horised. Hill Park Choir Outlng--Oll Thursday the members of Hill Park Cbolr, together with friends the members of Hill Park C numbering in all about 30, vvent for their annual outing to Tenby. Leaving the Castle square at 9 o'clock the party arrived in Tenby at 12. Soon after arrival, it fommenced to rain and contiouea for the remainder of the day. Dinner and tea were served in the South Wales Temperance Hotel, where during the afternoon an impromptu concert was The return journey was made at 8.30. p.m.. Woman Sent to Prisot' --At the Shire Hall, Haverfordwest, yesterday rfl°rmnj? before Messrs W. Howell Walters, J. T. Fisher and C. C. Saies, Sarah Price, of Quay Street, was brought up in custody charged with being drunk and disorderly the previous night. Defendant pleaded guilty and said she was very sorry. P.S. Parry told the court that he saw the defendant at 11.15 on Monday night on the Salutation Square. She was very drunk and making use of filthy language. Witness asked her to go home but she refused. She had five children and was lodging in Quay Street. A fine of 5s including costs was imposed but defendant said she could not find the money and was sentenced to 7 days' imprisonment. Outings to Broad H&ven-—Bank Holiday has for many years now been the recognised day for the outing of the members of the 11111 Park Band of Hope, and on Monday they again, went to Broad Haven. Unfortunately the weather conditi?118 were very unfavour- able and the outing was considerably robbed of its characteristic pleasure and enjoyment. During the afternoon the ram stopped and no time was lost in mak- ing the most of a few hours dryness. In the evening it again continued to rain and the party arrived home about 8 o'clock.—The teachers and scholars attending the Pope Hill Sunday School also went for their annual outing to the Haven on Monday. Promotion for Mr O'Shea.— We are pleased to learn that Mr P. O'Shea, who for the past nine years has been supervisor at Haverfordwest, has been promoted to a 1st Class District at Blackburn in Lancashire. During his residence here Mr O'Shea has made many! friends, who, while pleased to hear of his promotion in the service, will regret his departure from the district. Haverfordwest Boys' Brigade.—There will be a special parade ou Monday next at 8 p.m. in the Market Hall in full uniform. Should the weather prove unfavourable the parade will be held next night, Tuesday, at the same time and place. Obituary.—We regret to record the death, which took place on Monday, of Mrs Davies, late of the Fishguard Arms, Old Bridge. Deceased had been a greit sufferer for some time past. Mrs Davies was well known and highly respected throughout the Haverford- west district. Property Sale.—At the Swan Hotel, on Saturday, Mr Joseph Watts offered for sale by public auction Castlemorris Shop, with 43 acres of land, several cottages and gardens, and blacksmith's shop. The owner and her predecessors have carried on business on the premises for half-a-century. The property, which is freehold, was at first offered in one lot, the highest bid being £ 1,900. It was afterwards offered in 3 lots, but withdrawn, with the prospect of being disposed of privately. Visit of the Rev. R. O. Johns.—The special preacher at the Bethesda Chapel last Sunday was the Rev. R. O. Johns, the former co-pastor of the church. There was a large congregation in the morning, and at the evening service the buildiijg was crowded. The rev. ?e ￼ yiee gentleman uenverea two eloquent sermons, full of spiritual fervour. At the close of the morning and evening services a large number of Mr Johns former members stayed behind to renew his acquaintanceship, and it is needless to say they were heartly greeted. He is now pastor of a church at Luton in Bedfordshire, and it was 22 years ago last Sunday since he first commenced his ministry in Haverfordwest. He has left the town 16 year-, but paid a return visit 8 years ago. Next Sunday Mr Johns is preaching at the anniversary services of Sardis Baptist Chapel. I.O.G.T.—At last night's meeting of the above, a paper was read by Brother Harry James on Is the drink traffic on the increase in the principality ? the reader holding that it was Dot. A discussion followed which was taken up most enthusiastically by Bro. Joel Davies, Sister Chapman, Bro. Thomas Evans, Bro. Pictonaud other officers. This was also the session for the nomination of officers for the ensuing quarter. The final voting and also the installation of the new officers will take place next Monday. It was also decided that the trip to Broad Haven take place on Thursday week, August Ilth. Brakes will leave the top of Barn Street at two o'clock prompt, when, given favourable weather, the trip should be a thoroughly enjoyable one. The committee of the Lodge are arranging for tea to be provided for the whole party, including visitors, at Mrs Brock's. Visitors' tickets, including tea, Is lOd. It is hoped that a large number of people will avail themselves of this opportunity and by so doiug, show their sympathy with the Lodge and the work it is striving to accomplish. All persons outside the Lodge must give their names to the Secretary, Mr W. J. Jenkins, 13, Dew Street, by Monday next. A Sad Case. Albert Williams, Dew Street, was brought up in custody at the Shire Hall yesterdav, on a charge of being drunk and disorderly on the Old Bridge the previous evening.—Williams admitted being drunk but denied that he was disorderly.—P.S. Morgan said that at 7.15 on Monday night he was called into the Fishguard Arms. The prisoner was inside and Mr Rees and some other men were trying to put him outside. Witness then asked Williams to leave but he refused and continued his disorderly conduct and tried to strike Mr Rees, the landlord. The Sergeant then ejected him by force and with the assistance of P.C 61 locked him up. Witness added that Williams had had no drink there as he was only in the house a few minutes. Previous to this a policeman had been called into the Spirit Vaults by Mr King, who was also complaining of defendant's conduct.—Mr Howard Williams, brother of the prisoner, said he was very much surprised at publicans supplying him with drink. He was only a young man, his parents were dead, and witness said he could not always be with him. He had been watching his brother all day and when witness went to tea he was locked up. Witness added that he wanted the magistrates to black- list his brother. It was mentioned that there were two other charges against the prisoner which would be heard I at the sessions on Monday, and this case was also adjourned to the same court.
Cyolists Leave fop Aberystwyth I THE RED HILL ACCIDENT. I On Sunday the Welsh cyclists, encamped at Haver- fordwest, left for Newport, en route to Aberystwyth, where they will co-operate with the manoeuvres of the Welsh Territorials. The 100 miles run to Aberystwyth was a long one of the most hilly and picturesque districts in South Wales. It is not expected that the cyclists will return before Friday next. Last Friday the cyclists invaded Milford Haven, the defending force being the vVelch Regiment. The cyclists conducted some very smart operations, and had the Welch Regiment been quick to take advantage of their opportunities they might have overwhelmed the invading force, as the cyclists compared with their opponents were quite an insignificant force. On Thursday an unfortunate accident occurred at Red Hill. A farmer's cart collided with the car containing Surgeon-Lieut. Roach, of Dinas Powis. The car was smashed, and the flying glass cut the face of Driver Collins, who afterwards became unconscious. Driver Collins had only just managed in the swerve to prevent the car falling down a precipice. Dr. Roach was severely shaken, and cyclist Francis of Penarth, who was also on the car, sustained slight injuries to one of his legs. Fishguard on Thursday experienced the second invasion in its history, but on this occasion the invaders received a more ooriitl welcome. The supposed damage com- mitted, however, was much more considerable than when the Welsh mountaineers descended on the unhappy French force and vigourously attacked them with scythes and other agricultural implements.
CARNIVAL IN THE RAIN. GREAT DISAPPOINTMENT. Everyone felt disappointed in Haverfordwest on Thursday last. Elaborate arrangements had been made for a carnival, fete and entertainment, but owing to the heavy downpour of rain the greater part of the pro- gramme had to be abandoned. A few soaked prccessionists paraded the principal thoroughfares of the town, but it was a sad spectacle. No one could have expected the characters to turn out in such weather. The Bridge Meadow was soon sodden by the rain, and only a score or two of spectators assembled to witness the judging, which was conducted by Mr and Mrs Fred Summers, of Fern Hill. Had the weather been fine, we believe that the carnival, although the characters might not have been so numerous as last year's, would have been a striking success. An attractive programme, which included a confetti battle, had been arranged, but this had of course to be abandoned. During the after- noon a wire was dispatched to Pembroke Dock cancelling the engagement of the Band of the 2nd Batt. Welsh Regt. It was also decided to dispense with the evening function in the Masonic Hall, which included a mock- trial. The following were the prize winners Tradesmen's tableaux.—Prize awarded to Mr Seth Griffiths, bootmaker, Bridge Street. Best Tableaux.—First prize awarded te Miss Maud Millar (Britania) and the second prize to the Hospital car in charge of Miss Ethel Jamos- Equestrian Costume.—First prize awarded Mr Teddy White as Othello and the second prize to Mr W.

Present-Day Young Man. INDIFFERENT AND WORLDLY. I RECTOR OF LLANGWM'S OUTSPOKEN I REMARKS. Rev. H. Evans, the rector of Llangwm, announced on Sunday evening that next Sunday a meeting would be held in the parish church with a view to the formation of a branch of the Church of England Men's Society. It was with regret that he said that the young men nowa- days did not appear to interest themselves in church life or in anything outside purely worldly affairs. He did not refer to any other church, but they could depend that what was true of one section was true of another. Men were backward in taking au intelligent interest in religion. They might be keen in business or pleasure, but on spiritual matters they had no opinion of their own. They excused themselves by saying that some thought Christianity was one thing and others thought it was something else. The question was-What was their individual opinion ? Stability of character was never developed by an over-sensitiveness to the shifting winds of public opinion. Some people said that if they did not go to church they were no worse than those who did. Possibly not. The Pharisees to-day were not the pro- fessors of religion the Pharisees were those who did not profess religion because these were much more righteous, in their own opinion, than they who, admitting all their faults and imperfections, yet strove to live a consistent Christian life. But they were not responsible for what others did. Each one had a personal responsibility, as each was required to decide through his own intelligence, working voluntarily, What think ye of Christ ?

EXCELLENT ATTENDANCE AT ROSEMARKET AND LAMPHEY. Mr Cattanach, headmster of the Rosemarket school, reported that the percntage of attendance for the quarter ending July 1st las 94,6, and fur the half-year, 92. On four occasions eery child was present. Of the 95 children on books, 25 lid been present at every open- ing of the school since Jnuary 10th, 1910, 13 of whom had not missed since th< school re-opened on January 11th, 1909. Percentage ir the last three weeks — 98-5, 98, 96. These returns iL-jlude infants over and under five. That week the infaits made 100 per cent. and for the past three weeks, 99-5. Mr C. Worster, the headmaster of Lamphey school, pointed out that the schooihad now gained the atten- dance award without a break for 12 months, and that the average percentage for tin year ending June 24, 1910, was 92'1. This percantag was exclusive of the atten- dance allowed for medial certificates. Allowing for those certificates the perceitage was 93'9. Rev H. Evans thought the reports very satisfactory, and moved that the Cierc be directed to communicate with the Headmasters conjoined the Committee's appre- ciation of their efforts. The resolution was caried, Mr W. T. Davies remark- iug that if every head teajher co-operated in this matter, the attendance in the county would be considerably improved. MORE IMPERIAL AID WANTED. A circular was receivec from the Association of Eluca- tion Committees asking -he Pembrokeshire Authority to join in impressing upon the Prime Minister the necessity of additional aid in the natter of Education. The Chair- man said he was sure tha.t the Committee was prepared to support that application and the circular was adopted ADDITIONAL HELP FOR THE ARIIHI TECT* Mr D. Edward Thomas, architect, wrote asking that owing to the increased necessity of his visiting various parts of the county he be allowed to appoint his son, Mr Owain Thomas, his deputy.—The Committee complied with the request. Dr. Griffith reported that a special meeting ef the Buildings Sub-committee had been held that morning to consider the arrears of vork in tho Architect's office. It was impossible for Mr Taomas to cope with these arrears without assistance, and tie committee recommended that be be allowed 9100 in order to get the necessary assistance for the completion of this work within the next twelve months. If the work were done in a shorter time so much the better. He hoped that after this work was done, no further pecuniary assistance would be necessary. Rev. H. Evans seconded, and the recommendation was adopted. SALARIES. The finance committee reported that the Public Works Loan Board had agreed to make the following advances —Goodwick, X6,210 Milford Council, £ 3,133; Hermcn, £ 235. The two junior clerks, D. B. Thomas and R. S. Morris intimated that they would hive completed four years' service on 31st July. The Committee recommended that their salaries he increased jv 4s per week from 1st August. The Committee recommended that the Medical Officer i be paid X50 on account of salary due 30th June pending apportionment to he made by the County Council and the Education Committee. It was reported that the District Auditor had directed that the sum paid as commission on St. David's County School contract during the the year 1909-10, namely £ 23 10s 3d, should be re-paid by that school district, and that such sum be deducted from the termly grant under the Intermediate scheme. The Committee recommended that the Governors' attention be drawn to. the matter and that present term's grant be paid in full Archdeacon Hilbers, chairman of the finance com- mittee, referring to the salary of the Medical Officer, said that no apportiontment had yet been made by the County Council. There had been a special meeting of the furnishing sub-committee, and it was recommended that £50 be allowed towards furnishing the new offices. He deprecated the making of demands on the finance com- mittee on the morning of the monthly meeting of tha Authority, when there was no opportunity of inquiry. There was a request that morning for payment of £ 130 to the County Furnishing Co., and there was also a demand for money for fixing up the new offices. The Chairman pointed out that the furnishing of the new offices was referred to the furnishing committee, with power to act. He agreed, however, that it was very undesirable that these demands should be made on the finance committee on the morning of the general meeting. The report was adopted. WARNING TO OBDURATE LAND OWNERS. With regard to Longstone School a letter was received from the Board of Education condemning the existing buildings. The Clerk reported that he had not had definite terms from Messrs. Coxwell & Pope as to treaty for the site which had been selected by the sub-committee. It was mentioned that four firms of solicitors were concerned over the acquisition of this site, and several members oppressed the hope that there would not be undue delay as the existing state of things in that district constituted a scandal. The Chairman reminded the Committee that by putting the School Sites Act into operation, the Committee could proceed at once. Difficulties were sometimes pat in the way of the Committee acquiring school sites, and it was necessary that he should mention that under the School Sites Act a valuer could be appointed, and the Committee could pay the money into court and proceed to build at once. In this case he hoped they would not be ham- pered. In fact, he was sure that Mr Stokes, Tenby, and Mr A. B. Williams, Haverfordwest, two of the solicitors concerned, would be only too anxious to assist the Committee. The Clerk was asked to endeavour to get a reply from Messrs. Coxwell & Pope at an early date. The sub- committee was empowered to proceed with the acquisition of the site for the Longstone school, by compulsory measures if necessary. DIPHTHERIA AT HAVERFORDWEST. The Chairman said that that morning his attention was drawn to the fact that there were a number of cases of diphtheria in Haverfordwest, and that it was due to the insanitary state of the schools. He was rather surprised to hear that, and on mentioning the matter to the county medical officer, who told him that that was not the case and that the Haverfordwest schools were not insanitary. Dr. Evans I did not say they were nut insanitary. The Chairman Not to that extent. Dr. Evans: As to the cause of diphtheria I don't know. Continuing the Chairman said it was further pointed out that the schools had been closed on account of diphtheria, produced by the insanitary state of the schools. The County Medical Officer told him that the schools had been closed on account of diphtheria, but what the diphtheria arose from he was not in a position to say. He (the Chairman) thought it unfortunate that such statements should be made. He noticed that the Sunday Schools were to be closed as well, so both must, he supposed, be in the same condition. Archdeacon Hilbers said that the Sunday Schools were not to be closed because of insanitary conditions, but he had received a letter signed by all the medical officers in the town pointing out that if the day schools were to be closed the Sunday Schools should be closed as well in order that they might arrest the spread of the disease. Dr. Griffith said that in his opinion the spread of the diphtheria was not only due to insanitary buildings. Sometime ago there was diphtheria throughout the village of Llangwm, yet the houses were perfectly sani- tary. Diphtheria was spread by children coming into contact with those who had the disease. The matter dropped. SOME SERIOUS POINTS. Archdeacon Hilbers said he had received a report from the county medical officer of health. It was an able report, but it raised a number of very serious points which would have to be considered by the committee. It would be printed and circulated among the members. BOLTON HILL BRIDGE. The Haverfordwest Rural District Council submitted a I complaint that the school children had damaged a bridge I at Bolton Hill. 1 It was decided that the architect should visit the spot I and report. LOCAL TENDERS. The following tenders for painting, &c., were con- sidered'by the buildings sub-committee :— I s. d. Johnston-Mr W. J. Thomas 4118 0 Mr Robert Williams 67 19 0 Camrose South-Mr W. J. Thomas 12 10 0 Mr W. W. Rowlands 15 17 0 Mr J. Woolcock 17 10 0 Messrs Price & Davies. 19 15 3 Prendergast-Mr W. J. Thomas 83 0 0 Mr J. Woolcock. 122 0 0 Messrs Price & Davies 115 2 6 In the case of JohnstoD, Oarnrose South and Prender- gast Schools, the Sub-Committee recommended that the tenders of Mr W. J. Thomas be accepted, and in the event of his being unable to carry out all the work for which he has tendered, or of his retiring from any of the contracts, the next lowest tender be accepted.—Adopted ATTENDANCE OYI!'ICER CAUTIONED. Officer District No. 2 replied with regard to the charge of neglect to prosecute irregular scholars at New Hedges N-P. School. The Attendance Committee recommended that he be informed that he has no authority to sanction a child to stop home and that this matter should have been referred to the Committee, and also that he should not withdraw a case of prosecution because a child made full attendance after the summons had been served.—The report was adonted. WANT EDUCATION. It was reported that there were 14 children in Cresselly I over 14 excluded from school who desired education. The attendance committee decided to defer this matter for the present. HAVERFORDWEST GRAMMAR SCHOOL. I Rev J. Henson, headmaster, wrote asking whether there was any further information to give him concerning the proposed use of the Gratnmar School workshop for the teaching of woodwork to the elementary school boys. The Higher Education Committee recommended that arrangements be mado for the teaching of elementary school boys in woodwork at the county schools and that a grant be made by the Authority and any grant received from the Board of Education be paid to the Governors.— Adopted. BLIND AND DEAF CHILDREN. I Mr W. T. Davies read an interesting report of a con- ference held recently at Neath on the blind and deaf. He said there was a strong feeling that the present institution at Swansea did not meet the case. Only one or two trades, such as basket-making and carpet-weaving, ) were taught, and the Board of Education would not I sanction pupils being kept there after they were 1(; years of age. It was impossible for children to learn a trade I satisfactory by 16 years of age, and the conference waa of the opinion that some representation should be made on the matter to the Board of Education. At present Pembrokeshire paid this Swansea institution something like C150 a year for five pupils, and he did not think that the children got sufficient value for the money expended. It was thought that all Welsh Counties should combine in order to have an institution of their own, and with this object a further meeting was arranged. It was hoped that something more could be done to enable these un- fortunate children to earn their living in after life. Dr. Griffith said the matter was one of great importance as the blind and deaf children appeared to be sadly neglected. Mr Davies was thanked for his report, and deputed to attend the proposed meeting on behalf of Pembrokeshire. TO WEIGH CHILDREN. Arch. Hilbers mentioned that the Committee had inspected samples of weighing mtchinas. About 100 machines would be wanted, and the Committee had decided to order twenty a year. OFFICIALS EXPENSES. It was decided that officials be allowed 3d. a mile travelling expenses (both ways), whether motor or ordinary cycle is used. They are to be allowed third- class railway fare, but no hire of carriage would be paid for unless the order was signed by the Chairman of-the committee. By a majority of one the sub-committee decided against allowing the Agricultural Instructor 2s 6d for lunch. NO TEACHER'S HOUSE. On the motion of Dr. Griffith that no teacher's house be built at Lamphey for the present, a communication from the Board of Education urging a more economical scheme at Lamphey was not read. CAMROSE MANAGERS. Mr Philpin of Pelcomb, was appointed a manager of the Camrose and L?mb?ton schools in p!ace of Mr D. George, Home Farm, who had refused to act. It was mentioned that Mr R. Jeukius, Keyston Hill, was prepared to reconsider his decision not to act, and his name was allowed to stand.
Haverfordwest Sports. A varied and attractive programme had been arranged for the 41st annual athletic sports held in the Bridge Meadow, Haverfordwest, on Monday. Although the weather was responsible for a considerable reduction in the number of spectators, some excellent racing was witnessed. On being approached by the committee, the competitors, realising the positiion of affairs, readily consented to a reduction of the prize money. Competi- tors were present from all parts of the county, and had the climatic conditions been favourable, a first-class sports would have been the outcome. There were foot, cycle, pony and trotting competitions, and although the ground was somewhat sodden keen competitions were witnessed, and some very exciting finishes added to the difficulties of the judges' work. The judges were: Messrs. T. Rule Owen, A. H. Howard, R. B. Summers, Hugh Saunders, F Summers; starter, Mr W T Davies and the handicapper, Mr Ben Hooper, Jeffreyston. Sir Owen Philipps was present, and assisted in the judging. A word of appreciation is due to the secretary, Mr W. H, P. Rees, who left nothing undone likely to add to the success of the sports. The Pembroke Dock Town Military Band was in attendance and played selections of music during the afternoon. If was intended to have dancing in the evening, but this had to be abandoned.

Holidays in Brittany. NEW G.W,r,. STEAMER FOR THE PLYMOUTH AND BREST ROUTE. It was anticipated when the G. W.R. in 1907 inaugur- ated a new regular steamboat service to Brest, that the many charms of a holiday in Brittany would attract large numbers of tourists and holiday seekers from these Islands. To meet the requirements of the passengers the G.W.R. have from time to time placed one of their big steamers on the service, and in order to provide every possible convenience for travellers making the trip to Brest this season, the Company have obtained a magnificent new- steamer for the service—the S.S. Bretonne." The progressive policy of the G.W.R. is well-known and the enterprise of the Company in connection with the, Plymouth and Brest service will be much appreciated by the travelling public. The new boat is of steel construction, and is over 300 feet in length, with a tonnage of 1635 tons. She is fitted with twin screws, giving a speed of 16 knots per hour, and has been specially designed with a view to steadiness. So far as the equipment of the boat is concerned every- thing that makes for comfort and convenience is provided. The cabins are roomy and well ventilated, an efficient staff of stewards and stewardesses is carried, and strict attention is given to those many details which go towards the making of an enjoyable trip. The steamer is elect- rically lighted throughout. In fact everything possible is done to make the sea journey between Plymouth and Brest a delightful experience.
