Peters, M.A., vicar of St. Paul's, Grange- town, Cardiff. The deceased, who was a native of Haverfordwest, had been ailing for sometime, and on Sunday week he collapsed in the vestrv of St. Barnabas Church prior to the service. But he con- tinued to attend to his parochial duties until the following Tuesday when pneumonia set in, and he succumbed at his residence in Clive Street, Cardiff, early on Sunday morning. The rev. gentleman was born in Haverfordwest, and served as a puoil teacher with Mr Morgan, of the Barn Street National School. Afterwards he held the position of schoolmaster of Burton, and was well-known and highly respected throughout the district for his many estimable qualities. In 1898 he was ordained, and entering the Church .the following year his first curacy was at St. Fagau's, Aberdare, where he remained nearly two years. In 1900 he became curate of St. Paul's Newport, and his next curacy was at St. Cstherinels, Cardiff, after which he accepted the living at Dinges- tow, near Usk. About two years ago he returned to Cardiff as vicar of Grangetown and had ever since organised the Church work in that parish with con- spicuous success. He excelled as a pastor, the sick and poor of the ward receiving his closest attention at all times. No one but himself and the recipients knew the extent of his financial assistance in needy cases, and these also were his especial care in his capacity as a member of the board of guardians for Grangetown. Every movement in the ward that was non-political and nou-party in character, and likely to prove beneficial to the parishioners, found in him a hearty supporter. On Sunday evening references were made in the various churches of the city of Cardiff, and sympathy with his sister (liss Peters) vas generally expressed.

Special Services at the Albany. — The Albany Chapel was well filled on Sunday on the occasion of the monthly mission service, when the Rev. Owen Jacobs preached a striking sermon on Give God a chance." The preacher said that God had given every possible chance to human beings. As the Universe was the expression of God'a power, so man was the expression of His love, and when man turned his back on his Creator, God lost His expression of love. One of the chances man could give God was to believe, and when man refused to do this, he gave God no chance to save him.- During thfl service, the Misses Bollom, Albert Street, rendered a duett, His Holy Angels."

Jenkins, who has been secretary to the Pembrokeshire County Chemists' Association since its formation, was presented on behalf of the members of the Association with a silver cigarette casket and a silver oigarette case in recognition of valuable services un- grudgingly rendered. The presentation was made by Major Treweeks, Pembroke, who paid a tribute to Mr Jenkins for his faithful and devoted work on behalf of the chemists of the county. In spite of family bereavements, be said, Mr Jenkins had continued to perform the many onerous duties pertaining to the office, and a more efficient secretary it would be impossible for the Association to have.- Mr Jenkins, who was very much taken by surprise, feelingly acknowledged the gifts, and said be very much valued the presentation as a token of their appreciation and regard,—Mr Howard Llewellin, chemist, Milford, proposed a vote of thanks to the small committee who had organised the presentation and to Mr Pugb Davies, for having promoted it. He was particularly pleased that a Haverfordwest chemist should have taken the initiative in the matter.—Mr Pugh Davies replied, remarking that Mr Jenkins had rendered the Association such valu- able services that his only regret was that they bad not acknowledged them in some more substantial form.
