A Pretty Wedding at Steynton. The marriage of Miss Rose Williams, young- est daughter of the Ven. Archdeacon Williams, rector of Steyton and Johnston, on Friday last, was the occasion of much Local rejoicing '>,nd festivity. It was, however, shorn of much interest to the villagers, because, just prior to the event, rain began to fall heavily and continued without intermission for the rest fo the day. The decorations and pre- parations made by the villagers for celebrating the happy event were, therefore, considerably r. arred. The bridegroom was Capt. ihoma. Olivei Ramsey Sladen, formerly of the Car- diganshire Artillery Militia, and now a sub- magistrate *t Pretoria, South Africa. He is the son of Gen. Sladen, of Rhydolgog, Rad- norshire. The church had been tastefully decorated, and a large crowd of leople wit ressed the event, despite the heavy rain. The blide was in creme satin, trimmed with old Brussels point lace, and a veil of the same material. She carried a lovely shower bou- quet, and wore a gold pendant, se1 WJ' turquoise and pealis, the gift of the bride groom; and a gol 1 bracelet with the naiic "Rose" representi-J by a ruby, cpal, sap whirs, and emerald, the gift of <h.i parisnio*i nrg She was given a.vay by her first Cou^ =in Mr. George Checkland Williams, and was accompanied by tlu ee bride.;¡alds, h' sister (Miss Williams) and the Misses Slav en Msters uf the liidegroom), who (.re dress.!? of white cheffon, with blue trimmings and i-egliorii hats, with pink flowers. Each ci, -,ied a posy, the gift of the bridegroom, and wore gold bracelets, witii turquoise and peans, also the gifts of the bridegroom. Captail filaden, of the Scott Greys, the hr-degroom s brother, was best man. The ceremony wat: performed by the bride's father, the Ven. Archdeacon Williams, who was r: listed by the Rev. E. A. Weale, the curate of ihe parish There wa3 no choir in attendance, but Mi. R. D. Gilbertson was at the organ, and played Alendellsohn's "0 for the wings of the Dov' as the bridal party entered the church, and afterwards the Wedding March. A recption was held at the Rectory, vhicii overflowed with the large number of wedding "uests. Amongst those present v ere Mij- Phiiipps and Miss Gladys Philipps, Pict-.n Castle; Canon and Miss Lloyd, Slebech; Mr. and Mrs. W. Howell Walters; Gall. and Mi^ Sladen. The wedding presents v ere very. numerous. Amid the good wishes of their friends and showers of rice the happy pair left for London by 4.¡J p.m. train from Mil- ford Haven. The bride's travelling dress was of navy blue cloth, with navy blue hat and pale blue feather.
Pembrokeshire and Haverford- west Infirmary. ANNUAL MEETING OF SUBSCRIBERS. The annual meeting of subscribers to the Pembrokeshire and Haverfordwest Infirmary was held in the Grand Jury Room at the Shire Hall, Haverfordwest, on Saturday, and was well attended. Mr. E. Eaton Evans, the hon. secretary, was voted to the chair. After the minutes of the last meeting had been read, the Chairman said there was noth- ing arising out of them excepting to say that the recommendation which was made by the Rev. T. G. Marshall with regard to the ap. pointment of laymen in each parish to look after the house to house collections had been considered by. the oInJIlittee and had been acted upon with a g6od deal bf'success. He hoped, however, that the funds of the insM tution would receive even greater benefits from this source during the next year. RAISING THE FUNDS. A letter was received from the Rev. W. C. Hingeston Randolph, vicar of St. Brides, stat- ing that a sum of £ 8 10s. was forthcoming for the funds of the Infirmary as the result ot an entertainment he'ld in that locality on the suggestion of Lord Kensington, Ltn; chairmaa of the local committee, who was i opinion that that means of raising mOlH v was more suitable for the locality than a house to house collection would be, TÜ" rev. gentleman in his letter further suggested that special posters should be sent to to* various parishes about the time of the har- vest festivals, stating that an entertainment would be held for the benefit of the Infirmary funds. The posters would be a good re minder. Commenting upon the letter the Chairman said he thought the suggestion was a very good one. If the parishioners in any parish thought an entertainment was more suitable as a means of raising money than a house to house collection, the Infirmary Committee would be glad to fall in with their views. It was agreed that a letter should be wri. by the Secretary (Mr. Jones) thanking the Re. Hingeston Randolph for his suggestion. BOARD'S REPORT. The report of the Board of Management was submitted, and contained the following:- The out-patinets in 1905 numbered 721, com- pared with 760 in the year 1904, a decrease of 31 which, in all probability, is owing to an ir crease of discretion on the part of subscrib- ers in giving tickets. The in-patients num- bered 118, compared with 114 in the previous year. The number of days spent by patients in the institution was 5,854, compared with 5.372 in 1904, an increase of 482 days. It is gratifying to note that there is an increased balance in the treasurer's hands, viz., kiol 4s 4d., compared with k82 14s. 6d. in the pre- vious year. It is to be regretted, however, that the annual subscriptions show a falling off of £ 20, but donations, collections in chur- ches and chapels, street and house-to-house collections manifest extended interest on the part of the general public. The donations include: R40 14s. 2d., the result of Mrs. Howell. Walters' theatrical entertainment in Haverfordwest; £5 16s. 9d., the proceeds of a concert at Neyland; and C7 14s. Id. from the employees of Sir J. T. Firbank, Ltd. The street and house-to-house collections include: k26 Is. Id., the proceeds of collection in Haverfordwest; klO Is. 4d. collected in the parish of Burton; R5 12s. 6d. in the parish of Amroth; Z4 17s. 2d. in the parish of Roch, and 92 14s. Id. in the parishes of Walwyn's Castle and Robeston West. This is a not- able feature, and it is to be hoped that the very successful efforts on the part of these parishes may excite emulation in many other parishes in the county. The collections in churches and chapels show an increase of R15. Altogether these signs of widening pub- lic interest are highly encouraging. The Board have also to report that a legacy of £ 300 has been left to the institution by the late Mr. John Palmer, of Pembroke. So far the report has been of a cheering nature to those interested in the welfare of the In- firmary, but, unfortunately, it remains, to allude to a matter of serious importance which has been a cause of grave anxiety to this Board. Their attention having been drawn to the existence of cracks in various parts of the building, they considered it advisable to em- ploy the services of Mr. Caroe, an eminent architect, to report on its condition. As a re- sult of his report, though there is no mime- diate danger, yet inasmuch as the proverbial expression, A stitch in time saves nine, holds good, they have decided to take (or re- commend to be taken) the necessary steps to remove the causes of these defects. This unfortunately, will entail considerable expen- diture, which is to be regretted. It is hoped that the carrying out of the work will not! seriously interfere with the comfort of the oatients or staff. To the medical and nurs- ing staff the thanks of the Board are sicerely ?The Chairman moved the adoption of the report, and this was seconded by Mr. F. P. Green, who said it seemed to be a very fav- ourable one. The increased expenditure could be accounted for by the special expenses that had been incurred. The Chairman said it would be observed that they had a larger balance in hand than they had last year. Rev. J. H. Davies asked if it was possible for the meeting to be informed as to what contribution came to the institution from Milford Haven? He thought it would be well for them to know, seeing the number of bad ,-ase; that came to the Infirmary from that PThe Secretary said the Infirmary had a special contribution from Milford Haven in 1904, but they had nothing last year. Chairman: No doubt we shall have a con- tribution very soon. Rev. J. H. Davies: Milford is a big place. Chairman: We have subscribers there, of The report having been adopted, the report ->f the Medical' Officers was read. From it it appeared that during the year several in- natients had died, 69 had been discharged (ured 23 relieved, 3 practically relieved, 3 martially relieved, 3 incurable, and 13 re- named in the institution at the end of the vear. A large amount of good and useful work had been done, towards which the effi- ciency of the nursing staff largely contributed. The report was adopted on the motion of the Chairman, seconded by Mr. F. P. Green. In proposing the adoption of the accounts, the Chairman remarked that the late Mr. John Palmer, of Pembroke, had left a dona- tion of £300 towards the funds, and it would come in very useful towards the cost of the unfortunate expense which they had before them in connection with the foundations of the building, and it would have to be under- taken during the ensuing year. In proposing the re-election of Sir O. H. P. Scourfield, Bart., as president, the Chair- nan said they all knew the great interest that gentleman took in the institution, and the large amount of money he had contributed towards the funds.. The resolution was seconded by the Rev. James Phillips and carried. The retiring vice-presidents were re-elected on the motion of Mr. F. P. Green, seconded by Mrs. S. B. Tames, and the Rev. J. H. Davies, in pro- posing the re-election of the Medical Officers, said that the services rendered by them and S the abilities they had displayed certainly en titled the medical gentlemen to their best thanks. (Hear, hear.) The resolution was seconded by the Rev. James Phillips and carried unanimously. On the motion of tihe Rev. J. H. Davies, seconded by Mrs. James, the treasurer, hon. secretary, auditor, and dispenser Were re- elected. A vote of thanks was accorded the Medical Officers on the motion of the Rev. James Phillips, seconded by Mrs. Massy. A vote of thanks was accorded the hon. secretary, Mr. E. Eaton Esau, on the motion of the Rev. James Griffiths, seconded by Mrs. S. B. James, and, in replying, Mr Eaton Evans said he was very glad indeed to do anything he could to assist such a good cause. None of them, he felt, could be doing a better work than in attending to the objects of such an institution. Votes of thanks to he clergy and ministers of all denominations, the house visitors, audi- tor, and chairman concluded the proceedings. +
Chill Causeg Skin Disease. YOUNG WIFE'e 1rROUBLE COMMUNI- CATED TO BABY—^AM-BUK CURES BOTH. I Blood-chills are often responsible for the outbreak of irritating rashes or feverish erup- tions, which may develop into a chronic skin disease. Mrs Joyce, of Alfred Street, Westbury (Wiltshire), has proved the relia- bility of Zam-Buk in such cases. Mrs. Joyce :About fifteen months ago a rash appeared all over my body. It seemed to be under the skin, and the irri- ration was almosi unbearable. In some places it was like wjatery pimples which broke. I went to the doctbr, and he told me it was due to a chill in the blood. I had two or three bottles of midicine, but it did not do me much good. I then tried several boxes of ordinary ointment, which I got at the chemist's. It eas(jd the irritation a little, but the rash did toot get any better. My baby was born in |une, and when she was six weeks old a similar rash broke out all over her. I took iher to the doctor, and had several bottles lof medicine, but it did not get better. Tqe doctor told me there was nothing to be blarmed about. I kept the places dry by pinvdering on his instruc- tions, and for a few jdays she seemed a little better, but then it aljl came out again. Her hands and feet gO covered with running sores. They commenced like little gatherings and afterwards brokej My own disease got very bad, too, and Ij did not know what to do. It was just abo it, his time that I read of Zam-Buk and sent for some. The places covered by the first a] iplieations showed some improvement, so I s< nt for proper supplies and persevered with he treatment. I used Zam-Buk regularly for some time, and am thankful to say that kve are both well now. The disease is completely expelled, and new skin has been grown oyer all the sore places." Zam-Buk cures infl4mmation of the skin, rashes and eruptions que to chills, cold-sores, chafing, chaps and crocks, blotches, pimples, acne, eczema, ulcers, pfeoriasis, scalp diseases, abscesses, boils, poisoned wounds, festering sores, bad legs, sore tracks, diseased ankles, ringworm, itch, etc. Al^o invaluable for cuts, bruises, piles, deep-seated pains, colds and chills, sore throats, etc.

Ploughing Competition at Sealyham. SPEECHES AT THE LUNCHEON. LIST OF THE AWARDS. The second annual competion for poughing hedging, ditching, draining, and shoeing, and exhibition of dairy produce was helu at the Home Farm, Sealyham, on February 16th. The weather was simply attrocious, but the gathering was a successful one in every other ;ense. The judges were as follows:— Poughing.-Classes A and ii.-Air. j airleb Merriman, Came, Begelly, S.O.; Mr. John Williams, Castle Malgwyn Farm, Boncath. Classes C, D, and E.-Mr. George Prout, Milton-Burton, Neyland, S.O.; Air. Thomas Griffiths, Ffynnondrudion, Fishguard, b.U. Hedging and Draining.—Mr. David Edwards, New Inn, Rosebush, Maenclocliog, Clynder- vven, S.O.; M. David Lewis, Barnard s Hill, Wolfscastle, S.O. Shoeing.—Mr. Robert James, The Shoeing Forge, The Quay, Carmarthen. Dairy Produce.—Miss Lewis, Treberve, Let- terston, S.O.; Miss Lewis, Hanton, Haverford- west.. r. i-L At the luncheon Mr. John Walters, ot boutn- wood, presided, in the absence of the persi- dent, Lord Kensington. In the course of his speech the chairman said: I thank you very much for the honour you have conferred upon me, in asking me to preside at this meeting here to-day. I should not be placed m this position were it not for an accident which cur president, Lord Kensington, met with in the hunting field last week, and for which I am sure we all feel very sorry. I assure you this is an honour that I with the greatest possible reluctance accepted, for several rea- sons. In looking round the table I see here gentlemen far better able in every way to per- form these duties than I am. With regard to the meeting to-day, it is a perfect success, and so was the one last year at Lambston. I am strongly of opinion that these meetings will result in doing much good, both to the employer and the employed, as they must tend to bring up a better and more efficient staff of teamsters and labourers to work upon the farms, besides being an inducement to many to remain upon the land and possibly do some little good towards putting a stop to the rural depopulation. I have always considered that a job done well is by far the cheapest in the end and well repays the little extra time take.1 about it. For instance, a field that is well ploughed takes up much less time when you come to the harrowing, besides providing a good seed bed, which is a great essential towards producing a good crop. Harrow as much as you like upon a badly ploughed ridge, you get but little earth. It is the plough that cuts up the bottom, and that must be done at the first operation. The same applies to hedging and any other kind of work, whether upon the laud or not. These meetings, as every one must be aware, were got up through the kindness anu genero- sity of the past and present followers of the Pembrokeshire Hunt, and the one last year was entirely financed by them. I think it exceedingly kind of those gentlemen to come forward in a practical way like this to show that they appreciate the civility and good feeling that has always existed between the tenant farmers and the Hunt, and I think it is our duty, and serves our best interests, to do all we can to protect and further the old time-honoured sport. I am sure that I am only voicing the sentiments of our neigh- bours and of myself, when I say that we are at all times very pleased to see the popular master and his hounds when they visit us, and more than that, we can generally, if not always, show them a fox, and our foxes at Roch are no timid curs; they are not afraid to face the open, and bring the hounds and huntsmen along at as fast a pace as they can go, and if poor Reynard has to surrender his brush, he makes as hard a bargain for it as he possibly can. And now before I sit down I have great pleasure in proposing the health of our president, and I am sure that you will all join in wishing Lord Kensington a speedy recovery. Mr. Worthington, I am sorry to say, is also indisposed. I Mr. William Roberts, Dunston, Camrose, in the course of a few remarks, said: I am sure we all regret hearing of the accident that happened to Lord Kensington which has disabled him so hat he is unable to attend here to-day. We who are members of this Ploughing Match Committee feel ourselves very greaty honoured, and indeed extremely proud, that we have three so distinguished gentlemen in the county of Pembroke, who take such an interest in agriculture, namely, the president, vice-president, and secretary. The title Lord Kensington is very familiar to us all, for we remember the late Lord Ken- sil-gton, whg was such an ideal landlord. He was a gentleman who had a desire to see his tenants doing well, and in seasons of di ought and depression, was generous enough t) give a good reduction in the rents. As re- gards hospitality we believe the present Lord Kensington is equal to his father, and we trust that some one will in time to come be able to express concerning him the same sentiments as we have expressed to-day in rtgard to the late lord. The vice-president is another very noted gentleman in the county, as a breeder of the pure bred black stock, which has taken the premier prizes in various shows. Whenever any farmer waned o purchase any of Mr. Worhingon's stock he was always pleased to sell at a very moderate price. Although he is now ad- vanced in years and rather infirm, we hope that he will be spared for some years still ti lend us a helping hand in aid of agricul- ture. I think it is the fault of Pembroke- shire farmers to-day that they go in for too much of the mongrel kind of cattle. These animals will not feed so well nor realise the price to the butcher which I consider a very great loss. With regard to the hon. secretary, Mr. Bowen, one can only say he is a gentleman who cannot be surpassed in those qualities which earn the respect of his fellow men. He has always a pleasant word to rich and poor alike. Whenever anyone is in distress and goes to Mr. Bowen he is always ready to do all he can to assist them. So when we group those three gentlemen to- gether, I feel sure we could not form a better trio, not in the whole county of Pem- broke. I may also say that we are very fortunate in getting such qualified champion ploughmen as judges, men whom we believe will not show any partiality, but will award thd prizes to thos3 they think deserve the manage at the head of affairs. We as agri- honour. Such men 'we wish to rule and culturists are pleased to know that we have such a nobleman representing us in Parlia- ment, one who is well worthy of the name. When we speak of Lord Carrington, we speak of one of the largest landowners in the coun- try, a gentleman who has studied the interests of agriculture) and one in whose hands we can safely place our confidence and well-being. Mr. Joseph Watts, Greenfield, Letterston, in proposing the health of the judges, said: From all appearances their task to-day will ilot be an easy one, and is not envied, I am sure, by any of us. However, we have the consolaiton that they are equal to the work, knowing hem as we do, to be practical and sound men of judgment. We feel that not only will they give satisfaction to their own (c nsciences, but will also satisfy the com- petitors. I have therefore great pleasure in proposing the health of the judges. This was seconded by Mr. James Harries, ifayscastle, who said he did not think their work would be very easy to-day, as the com- petitions seemed to be very keen. But h. was sure they would discharge their duties in a satisfactory manner, and do justice to all competitors, without fear or favour. The following is a full list of the awards:— Ploughing.

« Haverfordwest Town Council. The Mayor (Mr. H. J. E. Price) presided at the monthly meeting on Tuesday evening, when there was a good attendance. It was reported that the new pumping plant at Crowhill was now working, and the Water Committee were given power to frame a re- vised scale of charges of water supply. In answer to Mr. Reid's question as to whether there would now be an increased supply, Alderman T. L. James pointed out that the present consumption per head was 27.45 gal- lons per day. Mr. W. H. Davies, Horn's Lane, was ap- pointed a lamplighter. The Sanitary Committee reported that they had directed the Surveyor to repair the roads and streets in sections and stop traffic thereon during the process. Alderman Thomas James urged the use of Porthgain stone in preference to any other, but his motion to order 100 tons was ruled out, for lack of notice, it being also pointed out that the estimates for the year had been framed A Committee o fthe whole house recom- mended by a majority not to ask the Local Government Board for leave to borrow L2,500, for the covering and improvement of the Market at present, but to ascertain the cost of keeping the present structure in repair for two years. Alderman Thos. James proposed, and Mr. E. Reid seconded, the adoption of the report. Mr. J. H. Bishop, who had opposed in com- mittee, moved an amendment that the im- provement scheme be carried out forthwith. He charged other members with having turned a complete sumersault on the question, and urged that in the interests of the Market the work should be done. With a revised scale of rents the increased debt would be met. Mr. W. T. Davies seconded, and said if the Market were covered he would find a man who would sign a contract for ten years to pay E150 a year more rent for the Market than was received at present, viz., £ 800 net annum. In the course of a lengthy discussion all present agreed that the improvement ought to be carried out, but, on a division, it WM decided by 8 to 7 to defer the work until the ^'ater loan expires two years' hence. Ihe Borough Accountant brought up a satis- factory financial report, showing mat the Council was L946 14s. Oid. better off than twelve months ago.
