Attack (In",A Rurse. TEN MONTHS FOl- COSHESTON LABOURER. At the Pembrokeshire Assizes on Wednesday before Mr Justice Kowlatt, Albert Footner, labourer, pleaded not guilty to a charge of having at Pembroke Dock on November 22nd, 1913, unlawfully assaulted Mary Elizabeth Harm an, a nurse, with intent. He was also charged with indecent assault. Mr Marlay Samson prosecuted, and Mr Longman defended. Mr Samson said the accused lived at Cosheston, near Pembroke, raid prosecutrix, who was the district nurse, had liwd there for 2] years. Nurse Hayman, "ho was a married womaii, left her house about 0.40 on the evening in question and was going to Pembroke Dock to a picture show. When approaching Snowdrop Valley a man passed her coming from Pembroke Dock, and shortly after- wards he turned round and followed and overtook her. lie caught hold of her, pushed her against the right side cf the hedge, and attempted to assault her. In her struggle she scratched the accused's face. A cyclist came along and the defendant became alarmed and jumped over a gate into the field. The cyclist, Frederick Hughes, hearing a woman's cries, went to her assistance, and they afterwards went together to Pembroke Dock and gave information to the police. Mrs Hayman, in the box, said the defendant had a peculiarity in his voice, which she was able to recognise. Supt. Thomas, Pembroke Dock, said he saw the Nurse at the Police Station, when she seemed very distressed and very much upset. Prisoner, on oath, said he was in the Royal Sussex Regiment for nineteen years and left with a good character. He hrcl never been charged with an offence of this kind before. It would take him an hour to walk from his house at Ccsheston to Pembroke Dock. He left Cosheston between 6.30 and 6..f.) on the evening in question and walked straight into Pembroke Dock to do a bit of shopping He passed some cyclists and motorists and a few Toupies on foot. It was. a dark night, but he could see pretty well in front of him. He did not meet Nurse Dayman at all that evening. He got to Pembroke Dock about 8.20. He had gone off the main road, but he afta wards got on again, but did not see the nurse at any time. All the people he met were on bicycles with the exception of the couples. Cross-examined lie took a roundabout route just to pass away the time. lie arrived home just after 9 30 p m. There was no fresh red mud on his boots that night. The scratch on his face was caused by shavicg that morning. The jury retired, and after a brief deliberation found prisoner guilty of indecent assault only. His Lordship, addressing prisoner, said he had been found guilty of a monstrous outrage on a respectable modest, woman going along a main thoroughfare in the eiirly evcilitil, in the neighbour- hood of a big town. Had he been found guilty of the more serious charge he would have had a long term of servitude, but under the circumstances the sentence would be ten months' imprisonment.
MILFORD HAVEN SESSIONS. EAKIN YOUTHS SUMMONED. BLACKLISTED EXCUSE, "THOUGHT HE COULD SEND FOR DRINKS." The Milford Haven Sessions were held on Wed- nesday before Col. Roberts (chairman), Messrs U. If. D. Birt, R. Cole, and J. 13. Gaskell. BLACKLIST!! R'S NOVEL EXCUSE. William Griffith?, fisherman, Hakin, who is on the black list, was summoned for obtaining a pint of beer at the Bridge Hotel, Hakin, and James White, labourer, Hakin, was summoned for aiding and abetting. 1 P.C. John said on December 30th he saw the two defendants coming across Victoria Bridge to- wards Hakin. When near the end of the Bridge Griffiths took something out of his waistcoat pocket and handed it to White. The latter went into the Bridge Hotel and Griffiths went on towards the Haven's Head. When White came out he was carrying something under his coat, and he followed Griffiths and handed somethingto him. Soon after- wards they came back, Griffiths carrying a bottle in his right hand, which, as soon as he saw witness, he put under his coat. He asked him what he had there, and the bottle dropped to the ground. Witness went into the Bridge Hotel, and the land- lord said he had supplied White with a pint of beer in a bottle, Griffiths was under the influence of drink at the time. The constable added that he was iu a shop at the end of the bridge when Griffiths handed something to White. When he served the summons upon White the latter said I will see that he (Griffiths) does iiol have me like that again. White (dramatically) Well, strike one stiff (Laughter.) White went into the box and admitted that he got a pint of beer at the Bridge Hotel, and three of them drank it, lie had had beer before that day- what he could get, he added. Griffiths also went into the box, and said he had a part of the pint of beer. When he was blacklisted he was told he must not be found on licensed premtses. He did not understand he was not to drink beer, and so when he wanted a pint of beer he bad sent for it. Griffiths was fined los and costs, and White 10s inclusive. HAKIN YOUTHS SUMMONED. William Lewis, fisherman, William Reed, fisher- man, and Samuel Howells, fisherman, all hailing from Hakin, youths of from 16 to 18 years of age, were summoned for being drunk and disorderly on the 29th of December. None of the defendants answered to the charge, but Lewis's father and mother, and Heed's mother appeared on behalf of them. Inspector Evans said this was a somewhat un- usual case. The defendants were in company in Charles Street and were jostling people off the foot- path as they passed, and their conduct was very bad. P.C. Flynn said he saw the three defendants in Charles Street and their conduct was so bad that he had occasion to speak to them. They answered "All ri\!ht," but then went on down the street joining hands and jostling people as they passed. He saw them deliberately jostle one girl off the footpath. He followed them down the hill, and another constable coming up their names and addresses were taken. Reed gave a false name. The men were drunk. P.C. Lewis said he saw the defendants turn down Victoria Road; they were singing, shouting, and using bad language, and were clearly under the influence of drink. He took their names and they were then allowed to go home. William John Lewis, father of one of the defen- dants, went info the box and was sworn, He said he saw his son at the supper table about eleven o'clock, and lie had had no intoxicating liquor. The Clerk You cannot go so far as that. Mr Lewis said his son left home at 6.30 to go to Wadbrook's, and he did not come out until 9 o'clock. The Clerk: Did you see him come out of Wad- brook's X o. Well you can only say what you saw r—I swear he had no intoxicating drink. Certainly not so much as to make him drunk and disorderly, Inspector Erins: Where did you see your son at II o clock r—Sitting at the table with me at supper. Are you sure it was 11 o'clock r —Yes. I am certain. Inspector Evans One of our constables saw him on the Hearts of Oak Square at 11 o'clock ?-If he were drunk I wouldn't back him up. Inspector Evans We don't say he was incapably drunk, but we say he had sufficient to make him disorderly?—I am prepared to swear that is one of the most infamous lies ever told in a court of justice. Why isn't your son here r—I told him in order to save him losing his ship I would represent him in court. Did your son tell you he was sober?—I had no need to ask him. I have proof of it by his sitting at the supper table with me at 11 o'clock. I will take an oath he had no intoxicating drink at all. Inspector Evans said he would call a gonstable who saw Lewis leave a public house at 11 p.m. that night. Mr Lewis said that when the constable delivered the summons he told Mrs Lewis that her son came home with his face and clothes torn, and she told him he was a liar. Inspector Evans: Were you present r—No, but my wife was. Inspector Evans Well, you can call her as a witness. Mrs Lewis was sworn, and confirmed her hus- band s evidtnee. Ifer son was at supper at 11 o'clock and was quite sober. He had not been in the h(?use long before that. When the constable 1 leVft I+ the summons he made a remark about the state of her son's clothes. She asked him what he meant and he turned away with a sneer. P.C. John said he saw the defendant Lewis, with some other young men, leave the Packet about 11 0 clock on the night in question. The door was closed when they came out. They went down Priory Street, aud as their conduct was bad, shouting, etc'' he followed ttieiii. Col. Boberts: What makes you say they were drunk* -They could not wall, straight. Reed's mother went into the box, and said on the night in question her boy was at supper at 10.30 p.m. At lO.Lj p.m. he went to the chemist for something a gentleman in the house wanted. Her son, she added, had never touched a drop of liquor in his life. Inspector Evans said Reed admitted to the con- stable that he had some clrink, but he did not want his mother to know. The case was ■adjourned for a fortnight, Col. Roberts remarking that all that occasion the three 1 defendants must attend. MISCELLANEOUS. I lienry Lancashire, a skipper, of Manchester, wad I charged with being iucapably drunk at the Railway I Station on the 12th. This being the first offence, he was fined 2s Gd, no costs. William Hirst, fisherman, Ilakin, for CUl in- decency iu Point Street, was fined 10s and costs. P.C. Flynn proved the case. James Curtis, fisherman, Hakin, was fined 03 and costs for being drunk and disorderly.
MILFORD COUNCIL. THE RAT NUISANCE. ANOTHER EFFORT AT EXTER- MI NATION. PROVING TITLE TO LAND. Mr George Cole pŒic1ed at a meeting of the Milford Haven Council cu Friday evenillg", when the ?tber members present wcie Mr T G Hancock (vice- chairman), Dr Daviee, Col W R Roberts, Messrs G S Kelway, J D Gfskeli, C T Bletbyn, D Pettit, L J Meyler, W II East, Morgan W Howdl, W Causey Whittow, Hugh Thomas and J Cuter, with the c!erk (Mr T H i Lewis), Mr Morgan (Surveyor), Mr Calderwood (gas and water nianiger), and the assistaut clerk (Mr T C Lewis). GAS AND WATER WORKS. The gas aud waeT work3 committee reported having I received the fc.Howmg ten lers for making two lochrs for stores at the gasworks :-F L'oyd & Co, +7 103 Phelps & Owens, X() 12s Gd Henry Adams, £(j 6s. The comtni'itee recommended that the tender of Mr Adams be accepted. The report was formally adopted on the motion of Mr Whittow. THE RAT NUISANCE. The sanitary committee recommended that a fence (two wires) be put on the hedges bounding on the North acd East fides cf the sanitary field at an estimated cost of £ 6 ISa Od that a new set of drain rods be obtained at a cost of £2 L")". The Committee reported that they have approved of the sanitary arrangements shewn on the following plans, and rccommend them to the Council for adoption eight houses proposed to be built by Messrs adoption i Lt houses pr, Culc & Sons in Starbuck Rjad Liberal Club, Charles Street; and house and shop proposed to be built by Mr W. Oakes in Market Square. Moving the adoption of the report, Mr Kelway mentioned that since the last meeting a repiy had been received from the Docks Company as to co-operating with the Council in the destruction of rats around the docks, which had now become very numerous. The Docks Company had now sent in affirmative reply, and he moved an additional paragraph to the report sanction- I ing the expenditure of £:3 12s on "ratin." This was agreed to,:and the committee's report adopted. HIGHWAY IMPROVEMENTS. The highways, lighting, and public improvements committee submitted the following recommendations — That 4 new uniforms be obtained for new members of the Fire Brigade, and the uniforms of the other members of the Brigade requiring repairs be attended to that a new lamp pil!ar aud lamp be fixed in front of the John Cory Sailors' Rest & Bethel in Charles Street that tenders be invited for about 800 tons of granite or other stone of an approved quality, prices to be given for broken and unbroken that tenders be invited for a supply from 1st April, 1914, to 31st March, 1915, of 50 tons of large steam coal; that 3 dozen brcoms be ordered at a cost of £ 2 8s. The committee reported that the X.P. Institution have given the piece of land projecting beyond the building line on the North E'13t side of Chapel Street, Hakin, for the purpose of widening the same, and are prepared to build a new wall across the garden that now projects into the roadway. The committee further reported that they have approved of the following plans, and recommend them to the Council for adoption viz -8 houses proposed to be built by Messers Coli> & [ODS in Starbuck Road Liberal (Iub, Charles Street. The Committee also stated that they have received a plan of house and shop proposed to be built by Mr W. Oakes in Market Square, and they recommend that subject to no step3 or any part of the building whatsoever co'.niug beyond the boundary line of property enclosed the plan be approved. PUBLIC PROPERTY TO EE PRESERVED. Mr Gaskell moved the adoption of the report, and said he desired to refer to the rain water chanrels and to Spike's Lane. Both these matters had received the con- sideration of the committee, and he hoped that at no distant date a recommendation would be submitted. Mr Hugh Thomas seconded the adoption of the report. Mr East, referring to the rain water channels, asked the chairman of the committee to consider the advisability of securing uniformity in this matter. Some of the pipes empty on to the pavement, some ran into other channels of different widths and varying depths, while some ran into the courts of houses and down the fronts, not adding to the beauty of the houses. At present there was manifest a total want of uniformity, and ho hoped the matter would have the attention of the committee. Mr C. T. Btethyn said that as they were to deal with an alteration in Chapel Street, Hakin, they might also at the same time attend to an improvement in Waterloo Road. He had spoken to the owner of the property con- cerned, and this person was perfectly willing to allow the hedge to be taken down and the road made wider. If that were done, added Mr Blethyn, it would give the street a good finish. The Chairman remarked that that matter had also been considered by the committee and when reporting on the other improvement he had no doubt they would have something to say about this improvement. Mr Whittow presumed that the highways committee would not touch existing drains, only new drains, because to deal with the former would mean a considerable and an unnecessary expense. The Chairman said that if anything was done to exist- ing drains the expense would have to be borne by the town as a whole and not by individual owners. Mr Whittow Quite so but I think it would be a great waste of money. The Chairman said the matter could be discussed if and when the committee brought up a recommendation. Mr Kelway, referring to the widening of Chapel Street, Hakin, said the owners of the estate had of their own accord given the necessary land and were re-building the wall some feet further back so as to fall into line with the frontages in that locality. As to Waterloo Road he understood that the particular land referred to by Mr Blethyn was to be built upon shortly, and in that case those building would of necessity remove the hedge. Mr B'othyn: In that case I don't thick it would be policy cn our part to move further in the matter. Mr Meyler called attention to the last recommendation in the committee's report, and said there appeared to be some doubt as to the ownership of the plot of land in question. Within his own recollection the Market Square had been an open unenclosed space, and the public had been allowed to go there without let or hindrance. He was informed that many years ago it formed a carriage- way leadmg from Charles Street to Hamilton Terrace, but between SO and GO years ago part of the street where the Conservative Club now stands was built upon. At that time he understood no claim was made to the plot of land and it remained part of the highway. Some 16 or 18 years ago a temporary building was erected there and it was rather unfortunate that the question of ownership was not challenged then. Since that time the whole plot of land had been railed in. Mr Meyler added that he had no personal feeling in the matter—he had not even the personal acquaintance of the gentleman who claimed to be the owner of the land, but he contended that if the land was to be developed, and it belonged to the public, the public should benefit from that development. With a view to investigating the ownership cf that plot of land he moved that the matter be omitted from the com- mittee's report and referred to the Parliamentary and Law Committee. He understood that there was no immediate intention of proceeding with the building so that deferring the matter would not cause inconvenience to any of the parties concerned. Mr Hagh Thomas agreed with Mr Meyler's remarks, and said it was within his own recollection that this plot belonged to the public. When he was a boy they used to go there to play, as the property was supposed to belong co the town. He agreed that the person claiming the land should prove his title thereto. Dr. Davits said he believed that when the Pest Office took possession the railings were put up by the Post Office authorities for their own protection. He supported Mr Meyler's amendment. The amendment was agreed to,- and the report was adopted.

HOCKEY. MILFORD v. HAVERFORDWEST MIXED. This match was played on Saturday last at Milford and resulted after an extremely one-sided display in a win for the home team by 11 goals to nil. Each side played eight men and three ladies, and the visitors arriving short found a brilliant substitute in H. Day—easily the most capable of his side. The Milford team had the double advantage of being individually far better than their opponents and also of. having played considerably together. Throughout, the team gave every satisfaction and the forwards being in scoring mood the game resulted as above, the scorers being G. Hooper (5), R. L. Hancock (2), R. F. Foster (2), R. S. Kelway, and C. M. Powell.

Major Guest's Opponent. 1 REMARKABLE SPEECH BY MR. G. H. D. BIRT. "MIGHT SWEEP AWAY THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY." A Conservative meeting, over which Mr J. F. Lort Phillips presided, was held at the Temperance Hall, Pembroke Dock o. Wednesday evening. The Chairman was supported by Mr II. Page, Croft, M.P., Capt. D. Hughes Morgan, J P., prospective Unionist candidate for the Pembroke and Haverfordwest Boroughs, Major and Mrs Meyrick, and Dr. A. E. Saunders, J.P. Captain Hughes IJorgan, dealing with the political situation, said the troub!e which existed was brought about by Ministers entering into an iniquitous bargain with the different parties in the House of Commons in order that they might secure their support, and thus con- tinue iu cffiie. Now they were in difficulties over some of the measures which they had passed to conciliate the support thus obtained, but the Unionist Party held that before those measures became law the people should be consulted. Once they were consulted, whatever their decision might be, and whether he agreed with or not, he would accept it. As regards the Pembroke Dockyard, they were uow having a good time, and he hoped the pros- perity would continue. He thought the prosperity iu the Dockyard was largely due to the Unionist Party advoca- ting a strong and efficient Navy, to which many Radicals were opposed. He regarded Mr Winston Churchill as the right man in the right place, and if he were allowed to carry out his own views he would certainly provide a very stiong Navy. Mr Lloyd George now desired a ieduced programme, and he (the speaker) considered his references to that matter iniquitous, because he regarded them as having been made merely to catch the votes of Little Englanders. On the matter of leasehold enfran- chisement be was one who had always favoured perpetual leases with the right to purchase the freehold, and absolute security of tenure. He did that to his own tenants. If the tenant improved the land, he never I raised the rent. Mr H. Page Croft, M P., also addressed the meeting. Mr G. H. D. Biit, Milford Haven, followed with a remarkable speech. He referred to the apathy the people of the country now appeared to show with regard to political matters, and said that in his opinion one of the reasons was that at the present time there was no single pre-eminent statesman in the country. They had enough politicans, but no great statesmen—he meant men like Disraeli, Gladstone, Salisbury and Chamberlain. He deplored the fact, as this country was certainly very near the greatest crisis in its history—he referred to the Irish question. They all knew that the first shot fired in Ulster would lead to such a huge wage of indignation right throughout the United Kingdom that the Radical Administration would be shot out of Downing Street within 24 hours, but the backwash of that wave of indignation, it was possible, might sweep away the Conservative party at the same time. This apathy, continued Mr Birt, was spreading in most peculiar ways. It was not confined to the electors —it was spreading all through the nation, and it was a most remarkable fact that on all the great questions of the day they were being led by men who were not Britishers. The speaker instanced Sir John Brunner, the leader of the Little Navy party, Sir Alfred Mond, one of the leaders of the Welsh Disestablishment campaign, and Mr Chiozza Money, one of the leaders of the Free Trade movement. Britishers, by their apathy, were Jetting their heritage be taken from them. They had been slack in the last few years. They wanted some big difficulty to make them pull together, and the question was whether that big difficulty was not very close. They wanted cleansing, and he begged them when the general ejection came, as he believed it would in three months, to cast their apathy aside and put their house in order.

LOCAL FOOTBALL. PEMBROKESHIRE LEAGUE. MILFORD TOWN 6; v. PEMBROKE DOCK UNITED 0. For the second week in succegsioD these teams met on Saturday on the Waterloo Road ground, Hakin. Both sides undarwent changes from the previous week, and oacl) more Ned Walters successfully named the coin and playe<i down the hill It was an ideal day for foot- ball, unaffected by wind. The home men knit together almost at once with the result that Williams had to save three hot shots in the first five minutes, and indeed the first half was a succession of fine attacks with an occasioual burst by the United, who at times promised well. Warr took a nice centre and opened the scoring after the game had been in progress about 20 miuutes, and before long Walters added number two. At the other eud John, the United skipper, shot wide when well placed, and Batten made a good save from Edwards. Coming down, the Robins were persistent, and the United defenders were forced to concede several corners. Lloyd was playing a great game and repeatedly cleared his lines. Teddie Walters had a fine shot saved by Williams and after a deal of line work Warr shot wide with only the goalie to beat. The United moved away on the left but a poor shot was all that happened. At half-time Milford led by 2 -0. Going straight down the visitors caused Batten to effect a good save and then Ned got away and a fine centre was not gathered by Warr, and two corners by Thomas were successfully cleared, but a pood shot from Mat Davies was saved by Williams who also cleverly negotiated a penalty kick by Warr. Just later Mat took a centre from Teddie and scored. The Robins were show- ing flue football up the hill and another goal came when Mat Davies headed through from the younger Walters's centre, the same player repeating the trick from a corner. A good run down by the United came to nothing as the ball travelled over the line. A grand shot from Teddie Walters was put round by Williams for a corner and Warr shot over, as also did Mat Davies. Coming to the other end the borne goal was endangered through B ttteu bsing penalised for carrying as clearing a shot. It was removed and a sixth goal to Milford followed through the goalie kicking against Teddie Walters and the end soon came. The visitors played their usual plucky game against the clever Robins, but wore not so good as a week ago. The outstanding man on their side was Lloyd, a young player with a future, for he is cool and kicks with ease aud possess just the right speed for a back. Orsman on the left was dangerous for a time, but the reserve, Fred Hancock, got the measure of bira,-a rare bustler this lad. Young Thomas also played a good game but was often outpaced by Lloyd, and although Jeffries was miss- ing, the home forwards gave one of their best displays. The halves and forwards were quite safe, but we fancy they will have to exert themselves next week against their old foes, Pembroke Dock A.C. Teams — Milford Towii.-Batten B. Davies and Smith F.

The men of the Goliath, fresh from furlough, havo returned to show their best form and have played two matches in a week, scoring eleven goals again&t one, so that it is evident they will have to be reckoned with for the remainder of the season. On Saturday they enter- tained Narberth, who did not appear to be so strong as on previous visits to Milford. At any rate the Sailors soon bad the measure of them and very early caused the visitors' backs to give away corners and to otherwise exert themselves. Thomas proved once more to be in good form and saved a nice shot from Williams. In vain did the Nsrberth forwards try to get away. Williams was prominent with a neat run and centre, which Drown headed over the bar. The Gollies con- tinued to attack and three of the forwards, clear of the backs and with an open goal, saw Thomas rob them and give a corner. This was fatal, for though Thomas got his hand to it, the ball came out to Effard, who headed iuto the net. Bit by bit the visitors gained confidence and invaded naval territory, Bennett shooting wide. Just afterwards Thomas, with a fine header, grazed the cross-bar from Rogers' centre. The Gollies, however, drove in another nail for, beating the defence, Williams shot into goal. Thomas mis-fielded and left Foster with an empty goal to shoot into. After this the men from inland were not much in it for Brown and Childs added goals before the interval. The second half produced a much keener Rime for Narberth plucked up to a great extent, fchoogh the Gollies were first to challenge. Then Rogers caused Ebden to pick up and a moment later the dashing Thomas was almost through twice. Foster spoiled openings by getting offside a-il the Goliath were weak in shooting at the top goal, and Farren and Bowles cleared often in the goalmouth. Williams's centres were not snapped up, for Childs was very slow. Several bursts down the field caused uneasiness to the Gollies for, sound as Reed was, he and Wager were often caught napping. A really nice move by Narberth was success- ful. Williams, at half, worked down and gave to Thomas, who sent on to the inside Rogers and then tak- ing the ball back on the run shot a grand goal. The Goliath attacked to no purpose although a fine shot under the bar was cleared by Thomas Actually it was over the line and the referee wrongly ignored the appeal for a goal. The Sailors strove hard for another goal, whilst on the other hand no one could have grumbled if Narberth had met further reward as the honours of the last half were theirs for they scored the only goal. If the other forwards were of the same class as Thomas, Narberth would be a team to be feared. The Gollies, as usual, were well balanced, and Wager was successful in his new position at back, but the search for a centre will have to be continued for Childs was not a success. Effard and Williams were the star artistes. The teams were H.M.S. Goliath.-Ebden Reed and Wager Roberts, Effard, Goodman; Williams, Huggett, Childs, Brown and Foster. Narberth.—Thomas Bowles and Farrar Williams, Bennett, Jones; H Rogers, F Rogers, J Thomas, Harries and Morgan. I H.M.S. CANOPUS, 1; v. PEMBROKE DOCK ST. PATRICK'S, 1. The Canopus once more had a different team from any they have previously fielded, Adams, Smith and Mitchell, three good men, being missing. "Dolly" Gray, how- ever, was in command in the rear and added strength. The visitors were also short of some of their regular players. Although playing up the incline, the Shamrocks had the best of the opening play and Evans had to handle often. The home goal had a near shave when, from a cross by F Powell, Kenny nearly headed in his own goal, Evans saving at the expense of a corner which Gray cleared with his head. The Cannies took a long time to settle down and most of their attacks were of kick and rush style, but the visitors were having rough luck. Bye- and-bye the sailors put a bit mote method into their play and did not kick so wildly. They engineered several raids but shot feebly. A dash down the left led to a hot attack on Greenslade, and n,t close quarters Reed gave the Cannies the lead. The Shamrocks straightway went up and forced a corner and again had bad luck, a lovely shot from Shears striking the cross-bar and going over. The Canopus held their lead to the interval. On resuming the visitors lost no time in getting into touch with Evans, but the goalie, assisted ably by Gray and Kenny, displayed rare judgment. St. Patricks had no luck in spite of their pressure but it was a long time before the Cannies could make an impression at the other end and then Hucks got across some nice centres which were not utilised. Evans was again tested and got rid of a hot one from Brown. Later his goal luckily escaped. The home men woke up a bit but could do nothing at close range, and again the Shamrocks tried their luck, Evans clearing but the ball came back to the centre where Russan, with a fine shot, at last penetrated the goal space and equalised. The game was even and exciting right to the end, and it was galling to the Cannies to be robbed of victory after clinging to their lead for such a time. Still the Shamrocks fully deserved to share the spoils. Teams :— H.M.S. Canopus.—Evans Gray and Kenny Dunny, Wotten and Lloyd Reed, Cox, Pullman, Lacey and Hucks. St. Patricks.- Greenslade; James and Howells; Brown, Handley, F Powell Shears, Truscott, J Powell,' B Russan and Palmer. WILTSHIRE CHARITY JUNIOR CUP. I MILFORD FEARNOTS, 3; v. R. DOCKYARD APPRENTICES, 2. This year the above competition is being run on the League principle and is confined to players under IS years of age. The only Milford team is the Fearnots and they had a much better side out on Saturday, when they played their first match of the series. A keen first-half resulted in a goal to the Fearnots scored by G. Mathias, whilst Griffiths added two more on crossing over but the young Dockyarders then evened things up by notching two goals so that in the end the result was close. The win should encourage the juniors to go on, and we believe they could so strengthen their team that the Cup will be retained in the town for another season.
MILFORD AND DISTRICT JUNIOR LEAGUE. MILFORD STARS I, v. H.M.S. TERRIBLE 1. AN EXTRAORDINARY INCIDENT. For this match on the Priory Road ground on Saturday the Stars had to find substitutes for Smith, Munning and R. Morse, but in the first part of the game especially they gave the sailors a warm time and A. King scored a good goal. The visitors were the heavier team and pressing towards the interval equalised. The game was capitally contested and in the second half both sides tried very hard for the winning goal. It looked like coming to the Stars when Davies was fouled in the goalmouth and a penalty was awarded. This caused a regular hubbub, for Broadhead, the ship's right back and captain, refused to allow the kick to be taken, deliberately kicking the ball down the field. He was ordered off the field but refused to go, and the referee was understood to abandon the game. However, after a time he allowed it to go on the M. ?d graciously allowed the penalty to be taken, but it went over the bar After this the Stars' forwards were evidently afraid of Broadhead, who threatened them every time they approached him. No further goals were scored, and we should say the circum- stances of this match will be dealt with by the League Committee. FOOTBALL NOTES. There was a plethora of matches in Milford on Satur- day, and spectators in every patt of the town had their choice. The Robins were in full swing and rubbed it into Pembroke Dock United with but little mercy. Blockwell and Jeffries were of course missed, but their substitutes were capable boys and had their share in the victory, which was even more complete than last week. Teddie Walters is back right into his best form and is a marvel for his size. It is also gratifying to see that Warr has found himself again. I felt certain he was bound to come. On Thursday Warr had a trial with Swansea Town against Trocdyrhiw and distinguished himself by scoring the first two out of the five goals recorded. The Swans have been very anxious to see Billy for a long time. It is hoped to fix up a match with Swansea ere the season is out. That will be a draw. The Gollies are still on it. On Thursday they ousted the Canopus from the Owen Philipps's Cup Competition by 7-0. It was interesting to see their old captain and leader II Dolly" Gray, play for the Cannies, and play well too. He has been transferred. Narberth surprised the R G.A. in the same competition and routed them 4-1. By this score they fell to the Goliath on Saturday and by a coincidence this was the score when the teams met at Narberth. Jack Thomas, the Narberth centre, is fit for better I company. Possessed of a fine physique, he is both speedy and clever. The Semi-finalists for the Owen Philipps Cup are- Milford Town, Border Regiment, H.M.S. Goliath and Naiberth. A good final seems assured. I regret to hear that there was an unseemly wrangle in the Stars v. Terrible Junior's League match on Saturday and that the Sailors' Captain distinguished himself and. refused to allow a penalty kick to ba taken by kicking the ball away several times, and further refused to leave the field when ordered off. In such a case the referee should have abandoned the match. I hope players of this kind, whatever team they belong to, will not be allowed to disgrace the game and will be dealt with by the League. Next Saturday at IIakin-Milford v. Docks, the old- time Derby. What thrills these games have given spectators for years past! Already two drawn games have been played at Pembroke Dock. Can the Robins improve on this on their own pitch ? May there be one of the old-time crowds to see them make the attempt. OLD ATHLETE. I
There was such a fall of snow this time one hundred years back that the mail-coach between Carmarthen and Milford was detained at Naiberth for two days aad the bags had to be sent forward on horseback.

Striking increase in the porter of the "soldier" cells that defend the body-after feeding on Virol. Convincing Evidence '> An elaborate series of investigations recently cond ucted at a well-known sanatorium has definitely proved that the addition of Virol to the diet exercises a remarkable influence on the action of the white cells of the blood, which protect the body against germs. The experiments showed there was a distinct and progressive increase ikl the functional activity of the white cells in proportion to the num- ber of weeks the patient had been fed on Virol. After twelve weeks' Virol diet the power of the white cells of the blood to destroy the germs was four times as great as that of the average blood of those who had not been fed on Virol.
