THE LOUIS" VELVETEEN. MOST materials are suitable only for certain styles of dress. The tailor-made serge or English woollen that make a perfect travelling frock would be an impossibility at a dinner. The "LOUIS" Velveteen is perfectly free from this drawback; there is no time in the day, no occasion on which it looks out of place, and no material of the plainest or most elaborate tissue, with which it will not freely combine, for the skirt that accompanies a satin tunic one day may appear, the next with cachemire or even muslin, an advantage that cannot be top highly estimated. As regards the adornment of women, nothing shows to so great* advantage beauty of outline and graceful figure, or the clearness and delicate colouring of the complexion. It is equally becoming to the blonde and brunette; it does not merely clothe, it drapes and designs: lends a dignity and grace to the wearer, and requiring but little ornament, derives its elegance from its own richness of colour and drapery. Every yard of the genuine bears the name "LOUIS." THE WEAR OF EVERY YARD GUARANTEED. STEPHEN DAVIES, 6 and 9, High Street, TENBY. TO-ITICS-HT I ROYAL ASSEMBLY ROOMS, TENBY.

WE have received communications recently from several correspondents touching the question of a Volunteer Corps for Tenby, and pointing out the necessity that exists for such at the present moment. They ask us to bring the matter before the town, through our columns, and we gladly do so. When the volunteer movement was first ini- tiated, more than twenty years ago, Tenby, like other loyal towns, set to work to enrol volunteers, with the result that a Battery of Artillery was raised and equipped, which ultimately reached a considerable amount of efficiency. It flourished for some years, but certain adverse circumstances arose in its management which it is unnecessary now to detail. The result was, the corps became unpopular, declined, and was ultimately disbanded. We believe there were two explanations for this. In the first place the Brigade, especially in its latter days, was badly officered; secondly, artillery was not a popular arm of the service with Tenby men, as they were without a proper bat- tery where drill could be carried on irrespective of the weather. It is now asserted that if the corps could be resuscitated, no such difficulties would be experienced. St. Catherine's Fort would supply the necessary facilities for drill; and gentlemen would be found willing to give the required time and attention to make themselves and the corps thoroughly efficient. Every encouragement is offered by the Government to raise corps for the defence of our shores, but stringent regulations bind the members to make themselves efficient soldiers. Volunteering is no longer a plaything but a reality; and if it were possible—which we admit-to raise either a Battery of Artillery in Tenby, or a company of Infantry to be attached to the Haverfordwest Battalion, the question must be approached with a full desire to make the move- ment real, and those joining must be prepared to make some sacrifices. We hope to hear soon of steps being taken to give effect to the proposal. We again beg to remind our readers of the
Concert by the Tenby Musical Society at the Royal Assembly Rooms this evening. Tickets can be obtained at Mason's Library. We stated last week that, in order to meet the loss over the Dog Show of last year, an entertain- ment would be given in the Royal Assembly Rooms on Monday next. We are now enabled to give full particulars in our advertising columns, and have much pleasure in drawing attention to the same. The Committee have secured the ser- vices of Miss Jenny Price, R.AM. (Jenny Maldwyn), for the occasion. Miss Price is well known in this neighbourhood, and has earned a reputation as a soprano vocalist of the very highest order. She will doubtless prove a great attraction and will meet with a warm reception from her many Tenby friends. Miss Price sings "The Bells of Aberdovey," with harp accompaniment; "Bid me discourse;" and with Mr Wade, the beautiful, duet, Maying." The other performers are Mrs J. G. Evans, the Misses Bowen, Messrs. Robert Lock, A T. Lewis, T. H. Thomas, Fred. Hordley, P. G Harris, and C. Akid (solo harpist) We trust that with such an array of talent, the entertainment may be the means of attracting a crowded house. The plan of the room is at Wade's music warehouse. u_ Our readers will observe in our advertising columns the notice of the annual meeting of the Wesleyan Home Missions, which is to be held in the Wesleyan Chapel this evening. The Society aims at reaching the masses of our large towns, and in other ways to advance godliness throughout our own country, and is well worthy of support. A meeting will be held on Tuesday evening at the Royal Assembly Rooms (kindly lent for the occasion by Miss Bright), to arrange preliminaries to establish a 'Cycling Club in Tenby. All in- terested are invited to attend. In the event of a rupture between Russia and England, it will be confined in the first instance to the to suspension of diplomatic relations. Sir E. Thornton will be recalled from St. Petersburg, and the Russian Ambassador will be instructed to leave London. Both Powers may feel some hesitation in taking the first step in actual warfare, but it is not believed that the rupture will remain in a purely diplomatic stage. In official circles it is believed that Russia will order General Komaroff to advance as rapidly as possible on Herat, and that the English Govern- ment will reply to this by occupying, first Quetta and then Candahar. The assent of the Ameer to the British advance will be given as soon as it is known that the Russians have invaded Afghanistan.

TENBY FIRE BRIGADE. Yesterday evening the members of the Tenby Fire Brigade had their annual supper at Gordon's Commercial Hotel, when a capital spread was pro- vided by Host Gordon. The chair was taken by the Captain of the Brigade, Mr T. Hugh Thomas, while Mr John B. Hughes, First Lieutenant, occu- pied the vice-chair. Mr A. T. Lewis, Second Lieutenant and Treasurer of the Brigade, was also present and about a dozen Superintendents and Pioneers, with several visitors, many of the mem- bers being prevented by illness and otherwise from being present. After justice had been done to the good things provided, the Chairman gave the usual loyal toasts, which were drunk with enthu- siasm. After supper each man was supplied with tobacco ad lib., and a couple of glasses of grog. During the evening the health of the popular Captain was given, and received most cordially, as were also that of the other officers-Lieutenants Hughes and Lewis. The other toasts included The Officials of the Corporation," responded to by Superintendent Hodges and Mr H. T. Morley The Press," Mr Leach and "The Visitors," Mr C. S. Allen. Several members contributed to the harmony of the gathering, and altogether a pleasant and enjoyable evening was spent.
LAUNCH OF THE IRONCLAD "HOWE AT PEMBROKE-DOCK. The steel armour-clad ship Howe was success- fully launched on Tuesday afternoon at Pembroke Dockyard in the presence of a large number of spectators. Every arrangement had been made at the bows of the vessel for the accommodation of visitors by Captain Chatfield, superintendent of the dockyard, and Mr J. C. Froyne, chief constructor. Previous to the launch an excellent programme of music was rendered by the splendid band of the Royal Munster Fusiliers. Shortly after four o'clock the usual religious service appointed to be read at the launching of ships for the Royal Navy was con- ducted by the Rev. F. W. Nicholl, M.A., chaplain of the dockyard, after which Miss Keith Stewart (niece of Sir Win. Houston Stewart, late Controller of the Navy) performed the ceremony of naming the vessel. At a signal from the Chief Constructor the cords suspending the dogshores were severed by Miss Stewart, and the vessel glided off her position on the stocky amid the deafening cheers- of the workmen and visitors. She is built of steel. Her length is 325ft. breadth, 68ft. tonnage, 9,700. Her armament will be four 63-ton guns in barbette turrets, six 6in. Vavaseur guns, twelve six-pounders, and ten Nordenfeldt guns and five Whitehead tor- pedoes. The ship is to be driven by two sets of vertical compound engines of the usual type, which are calculated to develop collectively an indicated horse-power of 7,500, to work up to 9,500, with forced draught arrangements. The revolutions at full speed will be 100 per minute. There are to be twelve furnace boilers, each weighing about 30 tons. The engines are being supplied and fitted by the well-known firm of marine engineers, Messrs. Humphreys, Tennant, and Co., under the super- vision of Mr H. Harding, local manager. The Howe, which is of the type known as the Admiral" class, of which there are six in the British Navy, has been built from the designs of Mr N. Barnaby, C.B., (director of naval construction), and the work has been carried out by Mr J. Millard (assistant constructor), under the immediate superintendence of Mr J. C. Froyne (chief constructor) and Mr G. Malpas (constructor). After having her machinery fitted on board and the general work advanced she will be sent to Portsmouth or Chatham to be pre- pared for service. Three other war vessels, viz., the A nson, the Thames, and the Porth, are now in course of construction at Pembroke Dockyard. Immediately after the launch an "At Home was held by Mrs Chatfield, at the Admiralty House. A large number of dockyard officials, naval and mili- tary officers, and the elite of the neighbourhood were present. The yard has recently increased its staff of opera- tives, and there are now over 2,000 hands employed. The Aii-son will now be pushed forward, and pro- bably launched during the current year. There can, however, be no very great urgency for the. vessels at Pembroke in. anticipation of war, as up to the present the hulls of the ships only are con- structed at Pembroke Dockyard. If those under construction were pushed on with more than usual expedition it would still take a long time to get them ready for service.
