Presentation to Excise Officer.-During Mr. Hewitt's stay in Haverfordwest as Excise Offi- cer he has won the good opinion of all with whom he has had business by the unfailing tact and consideration he has brought to bear in the discharge of his duties. In the Old Age Pension work these traits have been tspecially marked, and the old people have been dealt with in a kindly and respectful manner that has done much to enhance the value of the pension. Some of Mr. Hewitt's friends thought they could not allow him to leave Haverford- west for his new and more important sphere of labour in Scotland without some tangible expression of their appreciation of his many good qualities. A complimentary dinner was accordingly laid in the Salutation Hotel on Monday evening, when the Mayor (Mr. I. Rey- nolds) presided over a small, but representative gathering. After the repast His Worship made a presentation to Mr. Hewitt from his Haver- fordwest friends of a silver cigarette case suit- ably inscribed. Mr. Reynolds said Mr. Hewitt had made many friends in Haverfordwest by his geniality and the courtesy he had shown in carrying out his work, especially with the old people. Mr. W. T. Davies, C.C., endorsed the Mayor's observations and wished Mr. Hewitt every success in Glasgow. Mr. L. H. Thomas also spoke, and Mr. Hewitt suitably acknow- ledged the honour which had been done him.
