A large number of pres nts were received by both parties. We wish them all long life and happiness. A very pretty wedding was solemnised on Thursday last at Ebenezer C.M.

The happy couple left by the 3.30 p.m. train for London, where the honeymoon will be spent. The bride's dress (her travelling" costume) was of grey cloth trimmed with white, with hat to match. The presents were numerous and costly. x x x On Tuesday afternoon an accident hap- pened to Mr Frank Miles, Llanstinan. Whilst driving a trap past Hermon Ceme- tery, about 5 o'clock, his horse was light- ened by a motor, ani bol.ted. Mr Miles was thrown ont, and his ch- st was injureckby the wheel o' the trap. l'i-.

Kick-off at 2.30 o'clock. x x x A meeting of the Fishguard Cricket Club will be held in the Commercial Hotel, at 8 p.m. sharp, next Wednesday evening, the 0 28th inst. x x x We regret to record the death of Mrs Mary Thomas, which took place last Mon- day week, at New Tredegar. She was the widow of the late Mr Joshua Thomas, and formerly lived at Gongol fach, Fishguard. Mrs '1 homas followed her sons and daughter to Glamorganshire, where she lived for many years at Ferndale and New Tredegar. The body reached Goodwick station by the 4 o'c'ock train on Siturday afternoon, and conveyances were sent to convey the mourners by Mr D. Richards, Royal Oak." '1 he coffin was of polished mahogany, with brass fittings. The funeral took place in Hermon cemetery, and was conducted by the Rev. Dan Davies. Among the chief mourners were the daughter, Alet Mathias, and the sons, Mr James James, Mr Levi Thomas, and Mr William Thomas. The following team played Letterston last Saturday :—Goal, A. Stevens full backs, S. J. Pitt, J. Gibbon; half backs, Bob smith, Ll. Davies and Ben James forwards, S. Jones, D. Lewis, R. P. Lewis, Gt. Hanies and Geo. Moses. They journeyed to Letterston in a brake. Letterston won the toss and selected to play with the wind and down the gradient. After a few minutes' play, Moses shot the first goal fox Fishguard. A penalty kick resulted in another goal by Moses. Four more goals were scored in the first half for Fishguard. Second half-Eleven goals were scored for Fishguard in the Sr cond half, one only for Letterston. It would not be fair to in- dividualise players, as all played such a good game. This score constitutes a record for Fishguard. If this team could be kept together, it would give some good display of I football. The final score was Fishguard, 17 goals Letterston, 1 goal. ♦j* On the 16th inst. the death occurred of Mrs Marthas Davies, of Gongol, High-street. She was the widow of Mr James Davies, who was for many years in the employ of the late Dr. Owen. Deceased was 66 years of age.

The death took place on Friday last of Mr Thomas Morgan, Tregroes (formerly of Castell, Delyn fach). Deceased was suffer- ing from inflammation of the heart, and died after seven days' illness pJ; the age of 70 years. The body was tafeen to the house of his daughter, Mrs Howells, Hope Yard Lane, on Saturday, and the funeral took place last Monday. The service at the house was conducted by the Rev. W. Morlais I 'avies and at Hermon cemetery by the Rev. Dan Davies. x x x As will he seen from an advertisement in another column, the Fishguard Orchestral Society will hold a grand concert in the 'J emperance Hall on Thursday evening next (Saint David's Day) Some of the members of the Haverfordwest Orchestral Society will assist, while the best vocal talent has been secured. It is hoped that Fish- guardians will take advantage of this rare and unusual treat.
Skin Disease after Measles. BABY'S SUFFERINGS AND MOTHER'S ANXIETY ENDED BY ZAM-BUK. Four years represents nearly all of Frederick Gunn's existence, and he suffered from eczema in a very severe form during all of that time I His mother., who lives at 4, Bunker's Hill, Brighton, gave the details of his cure by Zam-Buk to a local Standard reporter as follow:— Frederick had measles when only atfew months old, and afterwards we noticed eczema starting behind his ear. The sore nearly drove the poor child frantic, and he scratched until he made it much worse. The disease spread to the nape of the neck, and nothing that I tried could check it. The irritation was continuous, though always worse at night. It was dreadful to see himin such agony. He couldn't help scratching the fiery sores until they bled, and I was obliged to make the child wear gloves. Sometimes I even had to tie his hands. Many so-called remedies only aggravated the sores. At times they would dry up for a day or two, only to break out with greater irritation than ever. I took him to the Children's Hospital and to Pi the Homeopathic Dispensary, and also had doctors to attend him at home, but it all ended the same way. I took to buying everything promising that came along, but it was not until he had been suffering for nearly four years that we met with the right thing—Zam-Buk. I noticed a decided improvement after the first few days' use q £ -Zam-Buk. The inflammation seemed to be dying out, and the boy gave up scratching the places. I persisted hopefully with the dressings, and in three weeks the exzema had vanished entirely. The child's skin is now quite free from sores, marks, or irritation, and be is a healthy, strong, chubby little chap." Zam-Buk has proved invaluable for eczema, spreading scabs, running sores, pimples, ulcers, festering sores, ringworm, bad legs, piles, scalp diseases, chapped hands, chilblains, cold-sores, chills, injuries, rheumatism, and sciatica. Price I/Il. or 2/9 per box (2/9 contains nearly four times the l/I). Of all chemists, or post free from the Zam.Buk Co., Red Cross Street, -London, E.C.

Drew's original comic song, Now we shan't he long" :— el, Our football team, just think of them, They started very bad. And every time they played a match We all felt very sad. Then Georgy Moses he turned up And said Let's try once more," Till Canning smiled, and then he cried Until his throat was sore. Now we shan't be long Now we shan't be long, For very shortly r can see Our chaps from ridicule will be free; We've had so much of it, I know I can't be wrong, The football will go All over the show, So now we shant be long." Our football team now gained a step Whilst down at Letterston. Our men they very soon made three, And Letterston made none. Then Cardiff sent. Dai Lewis up, He knows the way to play; And then came Charley Mason, so We always now can say Now we shan't be long, Now we shan't be long; We gave the Fishguard chaps what for, They'll never get a goal no more, We've had so much of it, I know we can't be wrong. 4 We'll shew 'em the way' Is all I can say, So now we shan't be long." We have a friend not far from here I Who lives upon the sea, His name is David Jones, you know, He's very fond of spree. He has not troubled us. so much For seven years or more, But soon as Sansom turned his back I He then began to roar: I (With) "Now I shan't be long, I Now I shan't be long; I'll blow the shanties upside down, The waggons and rails into Fishguard town. I've had so much of it, I know I can't be wrong f When Sansom comes back I'll make him look black, So now I shan't be long." We've had some jolly fun to-night In smoking the cigar; We must confess our boys are strong, There is no doubt they are. They pulled like niggers every one Because the smoke' was long; Then someone said 4 Where are you, Gad ? Says he, I shan't be long.' 44 No, I shan't be long, No, I shan't be long; I've nearly smoked my little 4 Fag,' My head it just begins to way. I've had so much of it, I know I can't be wrong, So hold up the prize In front of my eyes, For now I shan't be long." ( I FRENCH INVASION ANNIVERSARY.
