THE PEMBROKESHIRE HOUNDS Will-meet on'Monday, February 12th, at William- ston; on Wednesday, February 14th, at Loi^in Bridge: and on Friday, February 16.h, at Llan- deloy. Each day at 10'45 a.m.
HAVERFORDWEST NEWS. -<:xx> The Choral Society has at last been safe- ly launched, and rehearsals will begin on Friday evening, the 9th inst., at the Tab- ernacle 8choolroom. Mr. Evan Jones is the conductor, and Mr. J. Phillips sub- conductor, the hon. secretaries being Miss Bowen and Mr. Hugh George. The Male \oice Society will combine with the new society, and as these number fifty to sixty trained tenors and basses, it is only neces- sary to get an equal or balancing number of sopranos or contraltos to form a power- ful choir of 120 voices. There is an abun- dance of sopranos, but a difficulty as to contraltos. If any of the contraltos in the villages in the vicinity of Haverfordwest would like to have a good training under ah experienced conductor they should ap- ply to Miss Bowen, the Fishguard Arms, Haverfordwest, and no doubt they will be heartily welcomed. A man giving the name of Francis Joseph Walton McMahon was brought up before the Mayor on Friday at the Shire Hall on a charge of a very impudent theft. Mr. Huggen, of the King's Arms Hotel, said on Saturday, the 27th, the prisoner, whom ho knew slightly, came to his house and if he might stay a few days. Con- simi being given he went upstairs to wash, and afterwards he went out and witness did not see him again. Later in the even- ing he missad a watch, value P,2 10s., from his bedroom, and hearing prisoner had been crying to sell a watch he gave 'information to the police. The prisoner was traced to Cork and arrested by P.-Sergt. James, the watch being upon him. The prisoner, who pleaded he had served his country, asked to be leniently dealt with. He was re i manded for a week. Mr. James Mathias, of Bolton Hill, bro- ther of Mr. John Mathias, of The Dragon, died suddenly on Friday. Mr. Mathias seemed in his usual health on the previous day, and was present at the Roose plough- ing match. He was a well known farmer in the county. He was one of the oldest Volunteers in Pembrokeshire, joining when the force was in its infancy, and possessed a long-service medal. He was also a Ser- geant in the old Pembrokeshire Yeomanry, and one of his sons served with the Im- perial Yeomanry in South Africa. » With the view of celebrating the Liberal victory in the Pembroke and Haverford- west Boroughs, and of- signalising the unique event of the return to Parliament of a compact body of Liberals throughout Wales, & demonstration was held on Satur- day by the Haverfordwest Liberals in the Temperance Hall. The hall, which was well filled, had been tastefully decorated, and displayed with some prominence were the mottoes "Cymru fydd," "United i Wales," and "We are 34." The Rev. j James Phillips, the veteran of many fights, occupied the chair in the earlier stages of the meeting, and later it was filled by the Rev. E. Nicholson Jones. They were supported by the Rev. O. D. Campbell, Mr. Isaiah Reynolds. Mr. Harold Davies, of Brighton (an old Harfat boy, son of the ,late Dr. Davies), Mr. A. B. Williams, Mr. T. C. Rees, Mr. R. Sinnett, Mr Twigg, Prendergast; Mr. W. Jenkins and others, all of whom gave stirring addresses in the course of the evening. Mr. Owen Philipps, M.P., telegraphed from 86, Knightsbridge, London, to Mr. Isaiah Reynolds regretting that he was unable tQ be present. He wished again to thank all Liberal helpers for their assistance in securing a great Liberal victory in the Boroughs. He wished them a pleasant evening. The reading of the message evoked much enthusiasm. After the Chair- mac's address Mr. Isaiah Reynolds opened the harmony with a spirited rendering of the Welsh national song, the audience joining in the chorus. Songs were ren- dered by Miss Bessie Davies, Mr. Jack Edwards, Mr. Charles Rees, Miss A. Noot, Mr. J. "W. Thomas, Mr. Lester, and a concertina solo by Mr. Eddie Thomas. The accompaniments were shared by Mrs. Isaiah Reynolds and Miss Lilian Morse. A vote of thanks to the Chairman, speakers, and all who had assisted, on the motion of Mr. Isaiah Reynolds, seconded by Mr. G. H. Llewellyn. Hen Wlad fy Nhadau," was then sung, Mr. Isaiah Reynolds, the Rev. Nicholson Joaes, and Mr. T. C. Rees, each rendsring a verse, and the audienc9 joining heartily in the chorus. "God Save the King ended a pleasant evening. The annual ploughing match for Roose took place on Thursday on the land of Mr. Thomas, of Bramble, a large company assembling, and everything passing off successfully. The judges were :—Cham- pion competitions, Mr. George Prout, Milton; and Mr. G. Griffith, Pointz Castle. Diggers, Mr. Evan Howells, Waiesland; and Mr. J, Reed, Knock. Hedging, Messrs.

Mr. Price, the coroner for the Southern end of the county, held an inquest at Lambston, on Monday, on the body of Ann Thomas, aged 64 years, who died suddenly on Saturday. The husband, James Thomas, farmer, Gabriel, told the jury that on Saturday afternoon he and his wife had tea together. She seemed in her usual health, and made a good meal. Afterwards he went outside the house to attend to the cows when his grandson came for him and said grandma had fallen down. He went back into the house and found his wife lying face downwards in the passage. He lifted her up and placed er on a couch, and she breathed a few times and then expired. Dr. Wilson said the woman was dead when he saw her. Blood had flowed from her mouth and nose, and in his opicion a blood vessel had broken on the lungs. A verdict of death from natural causes was returned.
[ALL BIGHTs RESERVED. J TN AMSANG ElN TAD AU- THE ANTIQUARIES' COLOIHN. THE FARMERS' REVOLT. THE REBECCA RIOTS. By the Rev. J. Lloyd James (Clitydwenfro). CHAPTER II. (Continued). The gentleman and his wife were left to shift for themselves, tha lady apologising for the inconvenience and discomfort to which they had been put. The man murmured to his wife, in a low voice, saying, For all their disguise and wearing their coats inside out, and petti- coats, I can guess who several of them are." His wife, fearing some had over-heard his remark, whispered to him- I I taw pia hi" (silence is best); and then spoke loud- ly, "No, we cannot know, and do not want to know who they are—it is their affair, not ours-they have done us DO personal harm, and we are grateful for that." i'1 "Good night," said the lady, which was repeated by the others and all disappeared suddenly, and dispersed quickly, until none were seen, and as completely as if the earth had swallowed them. The gate-man and his wife might have had their suspicions aR. to some of them, but judged it wise to keep their suspicions to themselves, for fear worse might happen. They might have oome, some of them, from considerable distances, and some might have been' from farms not far off-possibly from Aber, Alltygog, Blaencleddau, Blaen- gors, Blaenffos, Carnmeini, Clunseithmaen, Dyffryn, Gilfach, Cwmcerwyn, Bw!ch-y- clawdd, Glog, Garn, Gwndwn, Crymych, Gwastad, Maesyrwyn, Llandre-uchaf, Llan- dre-isaf, Llandilo, Llangolman, Plas-meib- ion, Clungwyn, Tandderwen, Tredwndwr, Trerap, Prise, Pentrithel, Trallwm, Pen- gawsey, Gelliganddrill, Siberia, Vronlas, Vronlwyd, Wern, Tnys-fawr, and many others. In a few nights afterwards there was a similar expedition to a place further on, in the direction of Narbertb, called Penblewyn, where there were four roads meeting, a, few houses and a turnpike gate. The same process was gone through, and neither gate nor gate-house could be seen there in the morning. The news soon spread, of course, and some were credulous enough to believe that Rebecca and her daughters were not human but spiritual be- ings, and were fairies or demons. APTEP. III. HORSESHOE DALE. It was close upon eleven o'clock at night. in about a week after the the total removal of Penblewyn gate, and the air was very mild, and there was some moonlight, but the moon was not at the full. The owner of a small holding, one field s length from the highway, between Long- ford and Penblewyn, leading to Narberth, bad been out late, drinking at a neighbour- ing public house, and had come home the worse for drink. He was very nasty, as he usually was when in that condition. Everything seemed wrong, and nothing said or done seemed right. 0 His wife was a model of tidiness, cleanliness, economy, and care, according to the means at her disposal, which would have been sufficient to keep up a comfortable home, and meet all demands, had not her husband spent most of the annual income dus to him from a neighbouring farm, to quench his craving for drink, which was very selfish and un- wise on his part, as his wife and family had to suffer for it. He was kind to her and the children when sober, but cruel when the drink was in him. So he was that night. One of the children, a boy of about seven years old, was in bed but had purposely kept awake, expecting there might be unpleasantness, and thinking he might comfort his mother. The boy was the man's step-son, hit mother having been twice marriisd, and he naturally had more affection for his another than for his step- father. Besides, his mother was a religious woman, to which her second husband made no pretence. The mother alone kept the fire burning on the alfcar of religious devo- tion in the home called Horse-shoe Dale, and of which ehl alone was the light, whjoh she displayed by reading her Bible when alone with the children, having re- course to private prayer, leading an exem- plary religious life, and attending the reli- gious services at a Baptist church some distance off, and of which she was a worthy member. She often took the boy with her to the services at a WELL-BETTER-THAN-A- Cow, as the place ef worship was named. Why it was so named is a puzzle, if not for the following reasons—1, A well, or spring, Supplies water all day and night, while a cow is only milked twice a day, and probably not milked at all at certain seasons; 2, A well supplies all who come and draw, a cow only those it belongs to; 3, A well is wholly inexpensive to keep; there is cost in keeping a cow 4, A well oontinues the same one generation after another, for hundreds, if not thousands of years; cow gets old/ and its days of usefulness come to an end, and is handed over to the butcher for another purpose than being milked. 5, A well is altogether a blessing, and takes no offence, nor dis- plays bad temper, or fits of anger, to the rlAtriment of the subject; a cow has at nioies a nack of kicking the milk-pail and of using the protuberances, called horns, to the hurt of human beings. 6, The transparent limpid element of a well keeps fresh for a considerable time the white liquid supplied by the cow turns sour if iept somewhat long, and in hot weather it turns so in a very short time. 7, A well needs little or no care and trouble to secure its constant serviceableness but a cow has to be attended to, and is a matter of anxiety and care. Was this church named so for any of the foregoing reasons there is no means of ascertaining, but that is its name. (To be continued).
Pembroke County Club, London. The above olub held a grand concert on Thursday last, at the Erascati Restaurant, Oxford Street, when there was a very good attendance, and a capital evening's re-union and varied entertainment were enjoyed. The popularity of th9 Connty Club shows every sign of advancing, and the Musical Committee spare no pains to make" Bohemian" concerts in every way deserving of appreciation, while at the game time ensuring that the little native touches are not wanting to complete the circuit of affectionate reminiscence towards "the dear homeland." Mr. T. a. Jones was the announced chairman of this last bappy evening", but he was kept away at the lat moment, and the-chairman of the ooinmittee (Dr. T. H. Sydenham Jones) kindly consented to fill the vacancy. From first to last the many various items submitted conveyed the utmost pleasure, and evoked unstinted appreciation in token of this it the fact that the encores demanded so trenched upon the time that tha usual complimentary speeches towards the olose had to be "taien ae read." Not the le!lt part of the success of the evening could be attibuted to the able assistance as pianist of Mr. Merlin Morgan, the organist of the Welsh Church in Charing Cross Road, whose ability is quite out of the common even in London. He put a good tone to the evening's proceedings by playing in masterly fashion Mendel- ssohn's Rondo Capriccioso," and his accompaniments were as much appreciated by the artistes as by the audience. In association with another excellent young Welshman, Mr. Tom Morgan, R.A.M. (violin), he played several elassioal duets for piano and violin, both executants giving a sterling display Hubay's Hejre Katl" was an impressive perform- ance of note. Miss Marie Dijon appeared with great merit and acceptance in Blumenthal's Day Dream and "Sunshine and Rain"; Miss Nellie Beare took the room by storm for her skilful and tasteful rendering of an unusually good setting by Wynne, entitled A Star Story," her high notes being superb, as later in Batten's Nightingale," and the enoore "Killarney." Mr. Lemuel Roberts soored equally well, bringing on quite a furore for smart, manly renderings of such taking songs as The Skipper," Long live the King," and The Trumpeter." Mr. Roberts has a striking baritone voice, sings olearly and with right feeling, knows a good song and does justice to it; he will get a wel- come anywhere. A conjuring entertainment by Prof. Aryon wu a most hilarious interlude. Last, bat not by any means least must be mentioned the exceedingly clever representation by Mr. ErDest Legh and Miss Ethel Chinti of a humorous duologue in character, entitled He Proposed," showing ,how a faint-hearted French lover was amiably assisted to the winning of the English fair lady. The effort was really dramatically perfeot, Mr. Legh deserving a special word for his realistio imitation of the Frenchman attempting English speaking and English love-making. Altogether a faultless and nell-mixed entertainment which wound up with the hearty strains of Hen Wlad fy Nhadau." Mr. W. Mathias rendered active assistance. During the evening Dr. Sydenham Jones announced that the date of the annual Pembroke Dinner in London was Saturday, February 24 next. It may be suggested here that, every reader having Pembrokeshire friends in London will at once apprise them of this important fixture. Mr. J. Wynford Philipps, M. P., is to' preside, and it is desired to make the annual celebration a largely augmonted one this year.
The Pembrokeshire Fox Hounds. Hounds met at Tregwynt on February 2nd, and we noticed the following among the field :—The Master (Lord Kensington) and Whips Mr and Miss Carries, Tregwynt; Messrs Howell, Heathfield Mr Victor Higgon, Sealyham Dr. MeDonnell, Fish- Ruard; Dr. Williaut.5, St. David's; Mr T. E. Thomas, Trehale Mr Perkins, Penysgwarne Mr h, Churoblands; Mr Harries Boweu, Tresibilit; Mr Griffiths, Parky nolo Mr Griffith, Caetlecenks; V!r Bowen, Penrhiw, and tnany other sportsmen 0; After partaking of Mrs H^rrici' hospitality a Jove was made to the Tregw>nt covers, which un- expectedly proved biack. Houufli, were then takerj io Llambed, where a fox of the righi sort. was found, rfhich went away at a rattling pace, crossing the Llarigloffans, Jordanston, Jordanston Rectory, where he turned to the right, over Treooed and L!angwar- ren, and finally went to ground opposite Pontyvelin Moor with hounds close at his brush. This excellent gallop occupied 40 minutes without a check, A move was now made to Penybank which proved tenanted (this cover has not been drawn blank this season) and our fox broke cover at the south end, turned shari).over Priskilly Fawr, thence to Pris- killy Forest, nearly as far as Welsh Hook. Here he turned his mask sharply to the left over fleathileld, Llaogwarren, Jordanston, the Llangloffans, and, hard pressed, finally nent to ground at Tregwynt after leading us a merry dance of about one hour. Hounds thoroughly deserved their fox. Thus ended a capital day's sport, the precursor, we hope, of many more of the same sort. We noticed the Master was riding his favourite hunter, "Come Again," & winner of Point-to- Points. «—

"Wouldn't be Without it." A CHESTERFIELD WOMAN SAYS MOTHER SEIGEL'S SYRUP IS THE UNFAILING FAMILY MEDICINE. For years now Mother Seigel's Curative Syrnp has kept me in health, and I wouldn't be without it on any account." These are the words of Mrs. Charlotte Dearsley, of 7, Albion Street, West Park, Chesterfield. They form the opening sentence of a letter that she wrote on August 18, 1906, to the proprietors of Mother Seigel's Syrup. Let us look for a moment at the facts upon which this high opinion of a well-known medicine is founded, When I was thirty years old (now some thirty years ago), and for long alter," says Mrs. Dearsiey, I suffered terribly from indigestion. Food, of whatever kind, and no jjftatter how small in quantity, used to afflict me vfjm suoh violent pain that I dreaded to eat. I wp hardly ever free from head- aches, and became, zzy with their long continuance. Want of food 'an -'nability to digest the little that I forced myself to^eat, produced flatulence, another source of pain. Jan brief, I was a victim of indiges- tion, with all iM attendant miseries. In this fay 1 continued to suffer for several years, being unable in all that time to meet with any medicine, or any system or treatment, that aflorded me the least relief. At the time I waa induced to try Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup, I had abandoned all hope of a cure. But it is just there that I was wrong. What so many other medicines had failed to relieve Seigel's Syrup cured. It eased my pain at once; and thereafter I improved rapidly and was soon restored to perfect health. From that period until now I have rarely ailed anything, and have had no serious illness. On such occasions, a few doses of the Syrup never fail to set me up again. At times, all take it in our house. It is our family medicine—the best and most reliable remedy known. Ii
The Ancient Lineage of Hodge. It is astonishing upon what a little men will pride themselves when they have but little upon which to base their pride. "Are you aware, sir," said a certain gentleman in Pembrokeshire to a farm- er. whom he thought was lacking in proper res4 pect, "are you aware, sir, that my ancestors came over with the Conqueror ? An' sposin they did," said the farmer, they was fownd mine yare when they cumd."
