Williams stating that he has seen from the "Telegraph" that there is a "town fund" for local lads serving abroad, but he says that neither ho nor Pte. WiHie Jenkins (Dew Street) has ever received anything from it. He went to France in March, 1916, and has been wounded three times, the lapt time being in June last. He was then sent down to the base, where he met Jenkins. Before the war Williams was working with Drs. Wilson and Mills, and Jenkins wnsan assistant with Mr Maddocks, Bridge Street. We have posted each of these lads a box of cigarettes. We are constantly receiving letters to show how much these gifts are appreciated. It is the only local fund cf the kind. Accidents —Miss Clara Griffiths, 81, Quay Street, Haverfordwest, met with a slight accident near Canniston Wood on Wednesday last. Miss Griffiths was riding the hill without brakes when her hat blew off, causing her to lose control of the bicycle. She was cut and bruised about the hands and face, and was conveyed home in an uncon- scious state by Mr and Mrs Bell, Narberth. We are pleased to hear that Miss Griffiths is making a splendid recovery. On Wednesday evening a little boy, Willie Swales, son of Mr and Mrs Fred Swales, Canton's Row, was playing on the Race- course, when he caught his foot in a hole and fractured his thigh. He was taken to the Infirm- ary, where he is progressing favourably. The little lad is only 2 years and 11 months old. Haverfordwest Allotments. Thü Town Council allotment scheme has proved to be in every sense a successful undertaking. Thirty-five plots may now be seen, showing the best results. Potato crops are everywhere successful, and a striking feature is that grass land, which was said to be unsuitable, has proved especially fertile in the growth of peas, beans, carrots, parsnips, cab- bages, A'c. A very noticeable feature is the new method of potato culture introduced by Mr Parkes of Hillside. It is the Irish method of merely lift- ing the sod and planting the potato without further labour. This was looked upon by local gardeners with a certain sceptical eye, but the large crop which Mr Parkes is now raising proves that we spend too much labour on potato culture. The general opinion is that the allotment system should not end with the war, but that it should become one of the many blessings which we have derived from the German "blockade." atnHnwMBHHH
