ST. DAVIDS. The St. David's, Solva, and Carnhedryn Sohool3 will re-open on Monday, the 11th inst. We are glad to hear that the Dean is nearly himself again, although he has not yet taken very active part in church work. The County School will re-open after the Christmas Holidays oa Monday next, January Uth, and not on the 18 as stated in our last issue. The First Pension.—The person who had the honour to be the first recipient of the Pension at this place is Mr. John Lewis, haulier, Oakley Street. May he live long to enjoy it. We regret to record the death ot Mrs. Eliza- beth Davies, of Maendewi, wife of the late Capt. Henry Davies, and mother of the Rev. J. H. Davies, rector of St. Mary's, Haverford- west. The deceased lady had passed her four score years and had been bed-ridden for many months. Great sympathy is felt for Miss Davies and the bereaved and respected family. Prayer Meeting at the Deanery.—In response to an invitation by the Dean, a service was held at the Deanery on New Year's Eve, to ask for special blessings for the New Year. Extem- pore prayers were offered by the Dean and the Vicar, and passages of Scripture were read by the Rev. Howell Rosser. There was a good congregation present, amongst whom were several Nonconformists. The Cathedral.—The Christmas services at the Cathedral were well attended, large num- bers of comnunicants being present at both Welsh and English services. The carol ser- vices, which have been such a feature for many years past, were this year more popular than ever. At 7.30 in the evening, in the nave, a selection of Ancient and Modern Carols were excellently rendered by the Cathedral Choir. Canon Browne gave the address, which was an inspiring one. in the regrettable absence of the Dean, through indisposition. Nursing Association.—The second annual re port is now out, and the committee are glad to state that the Inspector reported last March that "Nurse Nixon did her work very nicely, and her books and equipment were in good order." During the year ending July 31st, 1908, the Nurse attended 54 cases, and made 1,523 visits. Her work gives great satisfaction, and is universally regarded as a great boon. The committee extend their thanks to the secre- taries, collectors, and the various churches which have made annual collections towards the Association. Zion Baptist Church.—The social tea and en- tertainment held under the auspices of the Baptist Church in the Town Hall New Year's Night, proved to be one of the most success- ful ever held in the place. The hall was elaborately decorated with flags and emblems, flowers, Japanese lanterns, etc. Neither were the tables as they were laid less conspicuous for neatness and good taste, but rather corre- sponded with, and added to the beauty of the profuse ornamentations that encompassed them. Great was the interest taken in the mince pie competition." Out of many com- petitors the first prize was awarded to Mrs. J. M. James, Nun Street. Afterwards an excellent programme was gone through. Ebenezer Congregational Church.—The an- nual social tea and entertainment in connec- tion with the Sunday Schools of the above church was held at the Vestry on Wednesday, 30th December. The tables, which were laid at 5 p.m., were presided over by lady members or the Church. In spite of the inclemency of the weather, large numbers of the scholars, teachers, and members of the Church, together with numerous friends sat down to an excellent tea. The vesty was very gaily decorated for the occasion by some members of the Sunday School. The entertainment commenced at 7, and consisted chiefly of songs and recitations. It was greatly enjoyed by the large audience. The chair was taekn by the Rev. R. Williams, Tabernacle. The piano was lent for the occa- sion by Mrs. L. R. Owen.
