MYSTERIOUS DISAPPEARANCE OF A BOY.- Evan Morgan, aged about 20 years, son of William Morgan, a butcher at the Slaughterhouse, left his home in Prendergast on Friday afternoon and was not found till Saturday morning. He was accompanied by a dog and went in the direction of the Paper Mills apparently for a walk. As he had not returned at a late hour in the evening, a search party was organised, and a thorough search for the missing lad was made in the neighbour- hood. No trace of his whereabouts could be discovered, and the search was given up at a late hour. Neither he nor the dog could lus found anywhere. The search was resumed on Saturday morning, and he was found near Fortune's Pool all right. WISEMAN'S ANNUAL BULB CATALOUGE.—We have received a copy of the new catalogue of this famous firm of nurserymen, seedsmeu and florists, whose head- quarters is Elgin, Scotland. Their trade connection em- brac'Js ;:roe remotest parts of the Kingdom, and, aseach year pases AY it becomes even more extensive. This is the most glowing testimony that can be given to the quality of the articles supplied by them and to the satisfaction which they give all their customers. Bulbs of all sorts and descriptions suitable for cultivation in this climate may be obtained from them. The special feature in the catalogue before us is the Japanese Fern Ball, whicn we have seen ourselves, and which is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful basket plants for sitting room windows or greenhouse. They may be had in full growth or starting into growth, at 2s Gd, 3s Gd, or 4s Gd each according to size. We would recommend our readers at least to write for a catologue. They are bound to see something that will please their respective tastes. LA--N-OU,d.-August 21st, 1901, was a day looked forward to by the Baptist friends of this village with considerable interest, and some degree of anxiety. This was the date fixed upon for their Bazaar, which was held in the Guildford Park, in a field kindly lent for the occasion by Mr Thomas Palmer. At 1 p.m. a large number assembled. The proceedings commenced with singing and prayer, after which the pastor, Rev. W. Davies, spoke a an d I)rtyer, af tei- Nvliich 1, few words, and then introduced Miss Coram, Neyland, who had kindly consented to open the Bazaar. The day was delightfully fine, and visitors were charmed with the beautiful scenery which presented itself on every hand. The members of the various churches gave a practical proof of :thelr sympathy with the Baptist friends by their presence and purchases. The financial result far exceeded the most sanguine anticipations of the workers. This amounted to nearly X75, which must have proved highly gratifying to Mrs Davies, the superintendent of the bazaar, and to the host of hearty and efficient helpers in this undertaking. Such success could not be achieved without the most earnest co-operation. Evidently, the people have a mind to work." The friends have done nobly, and hope soon to be in a position to commence the now chapel which they so much need. THE FLORENTINE —A title possibly well known to most of our readers, but to those to whom it is not known, we say, make its acquaintance as soon as possible. It is only the name of a Glove; but such a Glove a Ladies Glove of extra quality Kid simply perfect in fit, and of great durability; a choice skin of medium weight, thicker than ordinary kid, but thinner than Chevrette, with four fancy buttons to match the shade of the glove. It is one of the specialities of MESSBS. GREENISH & DAWKIXS, Market Street, and can be had in Beaver Drabs, Brown, Tans or Black. Another of the Firm's specially renowned gloves is one made from a Gazelle skin, or Australian Reindeei, in Tan or Grey, with four buttons, and is said to wear equal to a real Reindeer, although costing only 2s lljd per pair. Ladies who have once worn either of these two makes invariably have them again. MESSKS. GREEXISH & DAAVKIXS issue a complete Glove list of the various makes they stock and will be pleased to hand a copy to anyone wishing to have it.

A CARDIGAN SENSATION. FEMALE POSTAL CLERK ARRESTED The apprehension of a female post-office clerk, named Martha Annie Williams, a native of Merthyr Tydfil en- gaged at the Cardigan Post Office, and lodging at Napier- street. about G p.m. on Monday, caused great consterna- tion in the town. At 9 p.m, she was brought before the magistrates (Messrs W Woodward and W. Lewis), and charged by Mr Frank Wind, travelling clerk from the General Post Office, London, with stealing a post letter containing a postal order for 108 on or about the 11th of July, 1001, the property of the Postmaster-Ueueral. Formal evidence of arrest having been given by Inspector Williams, the prisoner was remanded till Monday next bail being accepted, prisoner in t'-)O and four sureties in £ 10 each.
GENERAL LAURIE, M.P., AND THE RAILWAY COMPANY. Ernest James Fazcu, aged 20, described as a seaman, living at 3.;j, Crescent-lane, Clapham, and wearing a military uniform was charged before Mr. Garrett, at the South Western Court, on Monday with being a deserter since June 14th from the 7tli Dragoon Guards, stationed at Shornclille. <> In answer to the magistrate, the accused said he had desired to returu to his regiment but the authorities at London Bridge refused to pass him, thougo he had an order from Lieut-General Wimborne Laurie, M-P., r6 questing them to do so. Mr. Garret (reading the document) I don't know that a member of Parlimeut has any right to issue an order requesting a railway company to carry a person free of charge Prisoner The order is backed on the other side by the names of two officers. The Assistant Gaoler observed that if the prisoner had written tothe commanding officer or to the adjutant of his regiment a warrant would have been sent him. Mr Garrett said he had no option but to commit him to Holloway Gaol to await an escort.

SHOCKING FATALITY IN BARN STREET. BOY CRUSHED TO DEATH BY A TRACTION ENGINE. LEG SEVERED FROM THE BODY. Another of those accidents, which have earned for Barn-street such unenviable notoriety, occurred last Friday afternoon, and resulted in a little boy sustaining such shocking inj uries that he only survived their inflic- tion about three hours. This street has been the scene of a long roll of fatalities. In most cases the accident was due to the steepness of the hill there, which makes vehicular traffic difficult, and indeed dangerous, except the drivers are both careful and experienced. In this instance, however, the boy seems to have been the proxi- mate cause of his own death. He fell a victim to his own childish thoughtlessness. The circumstances are simple and yet painful in the extreme. Ernest George, a boy of eleven years (son of Mr John George, City Road), with a companion named Albert James, was on his way to the National School in Barn-street about two o'clock in the afternoon, when he met Mr Samuel Phillips's traction engine travelling down the street, drawing two heavy trucks laden with straw. With the usual mischievous spirit of all healthy-minded little boys, he suggested that they should steal a ride behind the first waggon before they went in to resume the routine of school life. His companion agreed, and taking advantage of the fact that the man behind the waggpns was looking in another direction, they ran in between the wheels and clambered on to the coupling bar. They seem to have been there but a few moments, when young James, fearful of being late, jumped off, saying that he should go back to school. Ernest George followed his example, but as he was running out, he evidently caught his foot in some obstruc- tion and fell under the wheel. He screamed and the man behind rushed forward. Seeing the boy's terrible pre- dicament from the opposite side of the waggon, he shouted to the engine driver to stop at once, which was the only reasonable course for him to adopt under the circumstances. The boy was then caught by the leg under the wheel, and it would have been folly to en- deavour to extricate him without stopping the engine. However, before the driver could obey the command, he had to travel some yards. One revolution brought the unfortunate lad completely under the first wheel of the hind waggon, with all its crushing weight. It passed right over his thigh, smashing the bones, and reducing the limb to a mass of pulp. The last wheel also passed over it, making the boy's injuries even more frightful. The lad lay on the ground in a pool of blood, one leg simply a piece of bruised and bleeding flesh. He was of course unconscious. The men in charge of the engine, with several passers-by, immediately rushed to his assistance, and a messenger was despatched with all possible haste for Dr. J. H. H. Williams, whose residence was nearest to the scene. Pending his arrival, Mr Sidney Rees and P.C. Warlow, who were fortunately two certificated ambulance men, came up, and stanched the terrible flow of blood by the application of a tourni- quet. As Dr. W illiams afterwards stated, this was all that could be done at the time, and it prevented the boy's expiring on the spot. The poor little victim was removed to the Infirmary with all possible haste, and the mangled limb removed by Drs, Williams, Lloyd, and Mills. The loss of blood had been so great, however, that the opera- tion could not save his life, and he died in about an hour, after regaining consciousness for a few moments. The utmost sympathy is felt with the bereaved parents of the deceased, whose bright young life was thus terribly cut short. THE INQUEST. The Coroner (Mr H. J. E. Price), held an inquest on the remains at 2.30 o'clock on Saturday afternoon in the Infirmary. A jury of thirteen was sworn as follows:- Messrs George Reid (foreman) James Griffiths, J.P., John Millar, John Lewis, James Thomas, W. H. Howells, James Davies, Thomas W. Buckham, Alfred Birch, William Williams, W. H. Reynolds, Edward Nicholas, and John Moses. The jury having viewed the body, The Coroner said they were summoned to inquire into the sad accident which resulted in the death of Ernest George. The facts were very simple, and after hearing the evidence they would have no difficulty in arriving at a verdict. John George, City-road, swore that the deceased was his son. His age last birthday was eleven years. Wit- ness was a storesman. He last saw his son alive when he went to dinner at half-past one on Friday. His son was at home when he left about that time. Witness knew nothing about the accident. John Bevan, who said he lodged in Cartlett, swore he was employed by Mr Samuel Phillips to drive his traction engine. He was coming from Newton, near Milford, the day previously, with two waggons loaded with straw. He remembered coming down Barn-street about two o'clock, but he could not say the time exactly. There were two men on the engine and another man walkiurT I behind. One man William Rees was steering and John Thomas was walking behind. The first thing witness noticed was John Thomas shouting at him to stop. He was then down by the Brewery. Witness stopped as soon as possible, but he might have lost a few yards. He did not know what happened till he came off the engine, and then he found the deceased on the ground. The last wheel had passed over the deceased about two feet. Deceased was evidently very badly injured. He ran to the boy at once, but before he got to him another man had picked him up. He noticed a lot of children in Barn- street as he was coming down, but he did not see the deceased. He was coming at the rate of 2 or 21 miles per hour. He had all the brakes and shoes on, and exercised all the care he possibly could. The doctor was sent for at once, and the boy removed to the Infirmary. John Thomas, City-road, was next called. He said he was a labourer in the employment of Mr Phillips. He was walking behind the last waggon as they were coming down Barn-street the previous afternoon. He considered hIS duty was'to put oil the shoe and brake, and assist norses to pass. It was about two o'clock when they were coming down Barn-street. The first thing he saw was a young lad on his back on the road opposite the Brewery, with one leg against the front wheel of the hind waggon. W'f \eSS heard his screams and that made him dash on to K i,, 1,° engine driver to stop. He could not say If the ?hi. nd wheel had passed over him. The boy was like scoching" the wheel, which was trailing him a ,°6 r'V stopped at once. By the time witness S° +vT i- -ffrr-°™ calling the driver some one had taken the child out. ￼ aS £ he ,fil'st time witness had seen the child that day. He had not seen the child get on the waggon. Witness was on the opposite side of the waggon to that on which the child was, and if he had run to his assistance instead of stopping the driver he would have been longer, as he would have had to run round the waggon. He saw another child run away at the same time. WitllSS did not see what happened to the child after the accident, He heard some one calling to send for the doctor, and some one ran for him, but he could not say who went. He had seen several children on the other side of the waggons, but he had not seen any of them get on, or he would have driven them off. They were going at the rate of miles an hour, and scarcely that, and they exercised all possible care. Supt. Francis: You were leading a horse and trap behind ? Witness Yes. Supt. Francis You could not see much then of what was going on Witness: I could see one side of the waggon. Coroner How is it you were leading a horse and trap ? The witness replied that when they went into the country they pressed" there and they had a horse and trap to briuiT them to and from their work. That morning it came to rain a little, and they brought the horse and trap home with them. Coroner: Could you have done anything that was required of you when you had a horse and trap to look after r Witness I could not do more than I did, because I was watching one side of the waggon all along, and watching the shoe and brake as well. oi oner You think you could have rendered the asslstallce required by law when you had to look after a hOTse and £ ctiu ^re<l by law when you had to look after a Witness i? anything required to pass we always stopped and I could go to their assistance. CorODer: I ?'t say you are to blame for this boy's deat, but still do you think you are carrying out the Scr'rhorseandteu"^ wh6U you en?edlookin, afte a hose and tl.l, p. ? Witness: That I could not say. Foreman Were there a lot of boys about NVittless There were a lot going to school. A Juror (Air Buckliarn) Is any precaution taken to go with a red flag in front of the engine r Coroner That is not required now. Albert James, son of William James, ostler, City Road, said he knew the boy Ernest George very well. He and Ernest wore going to Mr Morgans' school the previous day about o'clock. They saw the traction engine first when near the school. Ernest ran in to sit on the double bar joining the two trucks together. That was near the gate about the houses. He did not get on there, but he got on lower down. Witness said he could not hold on and must go to school. Ernest tried to get Ott too, I)UL as Ile I"l()IT Ills foot tl'll)PCU ill something aud he fell. The wheel went close by one le and dragged the boy with it. lhen the wheel weut over him, and after that another wheel also went over him. It was a good long time before the engine stopped. Mr Thomas sent them out just as they were on the bar. That was the time Ernest fell. Mr Thomas, he thought, must have seeu them going ill. Witness said he must go to school aud then Mr Thomas camo up. Ernest was in such a hurry to leave that he fell. The waggon was moving when they got on. They ran in between the wheels to get on, Thomas was recalled by the Coroner and informed that the boy said he had ordered them off the bar. Mr Thomas replied that the first he knew of the boys being on the bar was when he heard the scream, and then he saw a boy—he thought it was the last witncss-runuing away. Albert James, on being again questioned, swore that the account given by Mr Thomas was correct. Dr. J. H. H illiams swore he was sent for a few | minutes alter two. He found the deceased lying on his back m the roadway near Barn-street. He had bled very considerably out when witness arrived, the bleeding had been stopped by a tourniquet applied to the leg by P.C. Warlow. All had been done that could be done at the time. Witness examined the leg and found that it was jiracticjilly severed trom the body at about the.middfc third of the thigh. lie advised the boy's removal to the Infirmary, which was done without any delay. He then sent for Dr. Mills and Dr. Lloyd, two other members of the staJY to hold a consultation. They decided the boy had very little chance of life—none whatever without )Cri,tioll--aiid so they removed the dead part of the limb and dressed the stump. The boy lived about an hour or all hour and a quarter after the operation, and was sensible a few moments before he died. Dea; h was due to i?e effects of shock and hemorrhage, resulting from t.te mj uriM he had received. The Coroner said that was all the evidence. The oues- tioll was for them to consider whether anvone was crinnnalJy responsible for the accident or not. It seemed to him that it was a pure accident for which 110 one was to Name but the poor boy himself. All the regulations required by law seemed to have been fulfilled, although perhaps they were sailing rather near the wind when one c | the men was leading a horse and trap behind. That my did not seem to be in a position to carry out his duties entirely, but he did not think the jury could make him out to have been criminally negligent. Dr. Williams said he wished to add to his evidence that had the tourniquet not been applied successfully by Mr Sidney Rees and P.C. Warlow, two certificated ambu- lance men, the boy would have expired there and then as the main artery of the limb was severed. The Foreman said there had been some carelessness about it; there had been something very slack, as the man could not see if there was anyone about the waggon or not. The other jurors disagreed with the foreman, and a verdict of Accidental Death was returned. THE FUNERAL. The funeral of the unfortunate little fellow took place on Tuesday afternoon at St. Martin's Cemetery, and was very largely attended. A large number of beautiful wreaths and other floral tributes were carried by school- fellows of the deceased. The Jlev. John Jenkins con- ducted a short service at the house, and the Rev. F. X. Colborne officiated at the graveside and delivered a touch- ing address the Rev. James Phillips also offered prayer. The greatest sympathy is felt for the parents in their sad bereavement.
WAR OFFICE CONTRACTS. ANOTHER ADJOURNMENT. LOXDOX, Tuesday. At the Bow-street Police Court to-day (before Mr de Rutzen) Mr John Henry Coram, J.P., aged 54, steamship owner and Government contractor, of Neyland House, Neyland; Mr Anthony James, J.P., aged 01, a clerk in the employ of Mr Coram; and Charles Ewart Davies, aged 23, a corporal in the Army Service Corps, stationed at Pembroke Dock, were charged on remand with con- spiriny to obtain a cheque for X180 7s 7d from the Secretary of State for War, with intent to defraud. Mr Bodkin aud Mr Graham Campbell conducted the prosecution on behalf of the Public Prosecutor, and Mr Muir appeared for the defence. It will be remembered that the accused arc said to have over- charged the Government for work at Milford Haven. Mr Thomas Cummings, who gave evidence on the last occasion when the case was before the Court, was recalled and examined as to certain vouchers and carrier's notes relating to the consignment of ammunition. He said it would be the duty of the consignors of cartridges from Fort Popton to Hobb's Point to measure them up. With regard to a voucher for 300 shells, lie. said it appeared as 26 tons Scwt. 3qrs. 181b., while the weight in the book was 16 tons Scwt. 2qrs. llIb., the correct weight. Witness gave other instances in which it was said the weight or the measurement in the vouchers sent to the Government officials was larger than appeared in the carriers' notes. In the case of articles described as loose targets, the measurement was given as 48 tons and 20ff. measurement, and the issue note to the carrier gave the figures as 18 tons and 20ft. mcrsure- ment. Charles Wareham Hopkins, a civil clerk in ttie Army Service Corps, produced any Army book containing certain entries of various stocks. He said that in one instance where he had originally entered in the book the measurement 12 tons 19 feet, the entry now appeared as 22 tons 19 feet. Mr Bodkin Do you find that alteration of the I into 2 initialled r Witness Yes, with the initials C.E.D." Had you any idea of the alterations until the inquiry into this matter began ;None whatever. The initials C.E.D." are in Corporal Davies's handwriting. In another instance of a voucher for goods coming into store withess found an entry which originally stood in his own handwriting at 7 tons 2(; feet, and it now appears as 17 tons 26 feet. Another entry (said witness) was a summary of carrier's notes, and the original entry made by him appeared to have been altered. The figures 23 tons had been altered to 33. The initials C.E.D." in Davies's handwriting were against the alteration. Another voucher related to 3(;0 shells. The weight which witness originally entered was 16 tons 18 cwt. 2 qrs. 181bs. The figures had been altered, and the alteration was in different ink. Witness had no knowledge of that alteration until after this inquiry was begun. There were the initials C.E.D. in Corporal Davies's handwriting against the entry. In another case 3G had been altered to 46. That might have been done by witness himself. Any alterations, however, which he made would be by the instructions of Davies. Wituess, after giving other instances, was questioned as to an entry of nn account for t96 3s 4d. With that, he said, were received at the Army Transport Office the vouchers in reference to which he had given evidence. Corporal Davies checked these accounts. Witness made the entries as to the accounts under Davies's instructions. Was your attention ever directed to any one of those alterations besore you made the entries of the amounts for payment ;No. Or at any other time ?—No. Mr Bodkin said that was as far as he could carry the case to-day, and he asked for a further adjournment. Mr Muir and he were agreed that it would be inconvenient to adjourn the hearing till next week, and it would be better that the case should stand over for a fortnight. Mr Muir I understand that two more days will complete the case. My clients desire to have some time to attend to their business affairs, which with the weekly remands they have not had. Eventually it was agreed that the case should be adjourned until the 20th instant, and that the Court should also continue the investigation on the 27th, with tho view if possible of completing the case for the prosecution then.

Mr Arthur Lewis, the revising barrister, held his annual court at Tenby on Tuesday. Mr E. Muncastcr and Mr H. T. Morley represented the Conservative party, and Mr W. Ivemey and Mr George for the Liberal party. At the beginning of the borough regulation business, the Revising Barrister asked who was responsible for the innovation in the manner of publishing the Parliamentary list for the borough, the names in the list having been arranged under the head of streets, instead of in alphabetical order, as previously. It was stated that the object of printing the list in the new manner was to facilitate canvassing at elections. The Revising Barrister said he should not refuse to revise the list this year, but that must not be es- tablished as a precedent. He should revise the list under protest. As to the expense, he thought those who desired the list done in this way should pay for it. Mr Lewis then proceeded with the revision of the list. The Liberals sustained fourteen new lodger ) claims, and the Conservatives three. The Conserva- tives entered one claim for the Parliamentary list, and one objection on the municipal list. At the end of the business, Mr Lewis described the new system of preparing the lists as being most inconvenient. It appeared that the expense of printing had been greatly increased, and in making out his precept for the overseers' expenses, Mr Lewis put a charge of £ 28 upon the town council, instead ot the 112 IUs of last year.
The Progress of Science in the Treatment of Deafness. No one at the present day, either in the scientific world or among tha public at large, can be ignorant of the remarkable results attained by the Drouet system uf treatment for deafness. Its success has been widely published by the public press, and just lately the "Journal for the Deaf" contains in a special issue an account of upwards of 200 recently cured cases. One of these is most remarkable :— Mr Silas Bending, 71 years of age, 1, Yine Cottage, The Drive, Fishponds, Bristol, had gradually become deaf to such au extent that he had to use an ear- horn. He had already tried different treatments. I have had ear-drums, also powder to draw up the nose, and oil to drop in the ear. But it all seems to horn. ,N- ow I am iisiiig iii ear- make the ears worse Now I am using an ear- Mr S. Bending submitted his case to the Drouet Institute, and commenced treatment in the beginning of January last. In less than two months a com- plete cure was attained.

Whooping Cough, always a serious complaint with children, is now raging throughout the country leaving in its trail a grim record of suffering and death, and hither- to no remedy seems to have had any effect against it. Recently, however, we have had some glowing accounts of a new medicine discovered and prepared by the Savanah Medicine Company, who have adopted for it the distinctive name of Savanaline. It is without doubt the best and only remedy for Whooping Cough, Croup, and kindred complaints, and no time should be lost in giving this wonderful remedy'a trial as delays are proverbially dangerous, and never more so than in these scourges of childhood when often a few doses given in time will spare weeks of suffering.

There was a large attendance of children and adults. An excellent repast was provided, which was presided over by the young ladies, whilst a miscel- | laneous programme was creditably gone through. An en joyable evening was spent, and it is expected much ￼ good will again be done through the agency of this im- portant movement.

Mottram, of London, was the principal speaker, and he delivered a powerful address on the temperance question. At the close a resolution was i passed, urging the Free Church Councils to inaugurate a iemperance crusade in the town during the coming winter months.

XARBERTH INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL SCHOLARSHIPS. To the Editor of the Milford, II aven Tehj'raph." SIR,-The Narberth Parish Magazine for this month in publishing the results of the late examinaticn for County Scholarships at the above school, makes much of the fact that the first and second on the list of successful candidates come from the Narberth National School. Now, I do not wish to detract in the slightest degree from the credit due to the Headmaster of the Xational School and the two lads who have made such a promising start, nor do I say anything against the somewhat extravagant eulogy on the great ability of the master and the won- derful efficiency of the school (this kind of thing is very largely a matter of discretion and taste), but I do pro- test against the unfairness of the Parish Magazine in giving such special prominence and publicity to the ques- tion of County Scholarships this year, after having in previous years passed it by as scarcely worthy of notice. As this has given rise to certain comments and compari- sons, I think it only fair that the Narberth public should know exactly what each school has done in this line during the time that the Intermediate School has been in existence. The following, which is taken from the pub- lished triennial reports of the Governors of the Inter- mediate School, shows exactly where we stand :-Board School pupils :—1894 1st, -1th, and 7th place., 1K<);>: 1st (girls list): 18% ;1rd, oth, and 8th 1S97 4th, oth, and 7th 1898 3rd and ath 1S99 1st and 4th (bracketed) 1900 1st and 4th 1901 oth.

Total 7, including only one first. I regret the necessity of drawing attention to this matter, but if comparisons must be made let them be made on a fair and just basis, and on a correct knowledge of the facts.

The Treason Trial at Bow- Street. FURTHER CHARGE AGAINST DR. KRAUSE. ALLEGED INCITEMENT TO MURDER. At Bow-street on Tuesday (before Mr De Rutzen) Dr Frederick Edward Trangott Krause, aged 33, a burgher of the Transvaal Republic, barrister, was brought up on remand charged with high treason. Mr Muir appeared for the Treasury, and Sir George Lewis for accused. Dr. Krause had a quite self-possessed, and unconcerned air as he entered the dock, but his smiling features suddenly assumed an expression of great gravity when he heard of an additional warrant on a charge of incitement to murder. Mr Muir, after reminding the magistrate of the warrant for high treason issued in the Transvaal against the prisoner, said that on the 3rd September the prosecution had telegrabhic information that a second warrant had been issued against him Oil the charge of incitement to murder. Depositions iu support of both charges had been made before the magistrate who granted the warrants, and these depositions, with documents to sup- port them, had been despatched to this country. They could not, however, be expected to arrive before the end of this month or the beginning of next. He must, therefore, ask for a remand or a series of remands until the arrival of those papers. His Worship's power of remand, he be. lieved, was limited to seven days, but it would be idle to compel the attendance every week of the parties to the case. He would, therefore, ask the magistrate to say that he would grant a remand until he was notified of the arrival of the documents from South Africa. Dr. Krause was remanded for a week without bail. Sir George Lewis said it was perfectly obvious that until the depositions were forthcoming it would be neces- sary to have these remands. He asked, howevoi, that when the papers arrived the accused's sohc'.tcaa might be furnished with a copy. Dr Krause had been in this country for the last 14 mouth* aa a prisoner of war on parole, and it did seem strauge that a warrant should hzlve been issued in the Transvaal on a charge which, according to the date, must have been committed in this country and not in the Transvaal at all. How the Fugitive Offenders' Act could be made applicable to such a case, or how a gentleman could be charged with high treason, who was not an English subject, seemed very extraordinary. He would not, however, raisel these questions now, but he thought it extremely hard that the accused should have nu information as to the crime alleged to have b&en committed by him whilst in this country, and that nevertheless he should be detained in custody. He could only at present make his protest against it. Mr de Rutzen said his duty was perfectly plaiu. All he had to do was to grant a remand. He was quite sure that any information the Treasury caiiid i give the accused's solicitors would be giv-en as fully as possible. An application was tleu made that letters, docu- ments, and other personal property taken from the accused when arrested should be returned to him. Mr Muir said there would be no obj ection to that. Sir George Lewis next asked that timely notice should be given as to when the case would be gone into, as he intended to instruct counsel. Mr Muir said that us full notice as they could give would tie sent to Sir George. Prisoner was then remanded formally for seven days, with all intimation that the remand would be renewed without counsel's attendance.

BETWEEN YOU AND ME." The fatality, which occurred in Barn-street on Friday last, shows what terrible consequences may occasionally result from childish thoughtlessness. In this case poor little Ernest George stole a ride behind a traction engine as small boys will, and paid the penalty of his rashness with his life. It is impossible not to feel the deepest sympathy with his suffering parents, and to be grieved that a young life should be so tragically sacrificed. But, as long as boys are boys, such accidents will occur. No care and no foresight can prevent them. No one man walking behind a traction engine and a few waggons can watch every side, and, if his eyes are but once removed and there are lively young lads around, the chances are that they will dash in between the trucks to enjoy an illicit ride. The men in the present instance adopted every reasonable precaution, and cannot be held as iu the least degree contributory to the poor boy's death. The training of boys for Pembroke Dockyard is, per- haps, the most important subject which can concern the X ey land School Board. The Dockyard offers the chief opportunity locally for remunerative employment, and to it a large proportion of the boys of the district find their way. It is stated that at present boys desirous of pass- ing the entrance examination have to go across from Neyland to Pembroke Dock for their education, which means a much greater expenditure on the part of the parents than would be the case if they were prepared on this side. There does not seem to be any valid reason why they should not. The case for their education at home was admirably put at the last meeting of the School Board by Mr George Lewis and the Rev. B. Powell Morris, and was practically acquiesced in by the other members present. The matter was, however, very properly adjourned for fuller information. It is better that the opinion of the teachers should be had on the matter and any reasonable objection met by the Board. Mr Lewis deserves every credit for bringing the subject forward. The opening of the shooting season has resurrected the usual number of dog-eared anecdotes. A local sports- man, whose christian name is not George Washington or anything like it, told me the following "o'er true tale the other day. Last September he went out for a day's shooting. His dog pointed at some partridges, and he was just about to fire when a messenger dashed hurriedly up and announced a very sad domestic bereavement. He dropped his gun, left the dog standing there and ran off home. Sorrow and important family affairs put the whole matter out of his head for months, and when he did recall the incident at last, he thought so much time had elapsed there was no use bothering about it. What was his astonishment this year, when he started the season on the same spot, to see the skeleton of his dog still standing and pointing just as he had left it, and to discover a little further on the skeletons of a covey of partridges. What a dutiful animal is the" dorg," and what a silly bird the partridge Practical jokes are excusable at times. That is pro- vided they are harmless, and are only an innocent outlet for overflowing animal spirits. But the two little boys who tried to knock off cyclists' headgear by stretching a cord across the road at Portfield some time since, had no such excuse. They meant no harm, but their fun, like that of the boys of old and the frogs in tsop 's fable, might have resulted in the infliction of serious injury to the cyclist. Boys are so constructed that they can derive huge delight from the prospect of a cyclist chasing his hat, frolicking about the road, but the most hardened boy would scarcely chortle with glee if he saw a cyclist killed through his pranks. It is to be hoped that the small fine imposed in the case here mentioned by the Haver- fordwest magistrates will make local boys more careful of the shape their practical jokes take. The Haverfordwest Grammar School Governors seem from present appearances to have heard the last of the famous case of suspected copying. The threats of the Central Welsh Board, the fulminations of the demi-gods of the Education Department, and the dire warnings addressed to the Governors to commit them for contempt, left that devoted body undismayed. They held to their rights with undaunted breasts, and the courageous atti- tude adopted by them has shown all these threats to have been as empty as the east wind. Nothing has been heard of the case since the beginning of May. If the educa- tion authorities are meditating new tactics they may be assured that they will be met with the same firmness as heretofore. The report of the headmaster of the Grammat School shows that it can hold its own with any similar institution in the Kingdom. The results of the last examinations under the Oxford and Cambridge Boards and the Central Walsh Board are the proof. They are the most satis- factory on record. The boys have done remarkably well, and, in some subjects, scored exceptionally high. The success of Master W. W. Tute in passing direct from the school into Sandhurst is a still further testimony to the efficiency of the teaching, and is equally creditable to the genial headmaster, Mr J. S. O. Tombs, and to the successful candidate. These successes have been achieved by the school under the most unfavouable circumstances. The Central Welsh Board, as the case of suspected copying showed, is not extra friendly to it. But, as long as the educational system here followed maintains its present high level, the school can hold its place in popular esteem without either favour or affection. We It is rumoured that an agitation is to be set on foot for the better up-keep of the Haven Road. Cyclists and visitors to the Haven generally, during the season now almost closed, have had reason to oomplain of its wretched condition. The surface is very bad from Port- field Gate onward, being covered with loose stones of all shapes and sizes, and being as rough as it could well be. A number of gentlemen in Haverfordwest are taking the matter up, and it is to be hoped that their representations will have the desired effect. It is as cheap to keep the road in a proper condition as it is to maintain its preseht lack of uniformity and its perennial state of roughness. • The question is one which is bound to havo the support I of the townspeople, who patronise the Haven so largely.

-=- An Application Refused. The Board of Guardians of a rural Union recently advertised for a strong woman to attend to the laundry, also to do the scrubbing," at the Workhouse. The wages are stated to be £ 20 per annum. The number of applications for the post was limited, and included the following Sept. 2nd, 1901. j (lentleineii,-Ilv an advertisement in the Cam- bridge Daily -New. I find you require a strong young woman in your Workhouse to attend to the laundry and do the scrubbing. Now I feel I am just the young woman you require. I am 22 years of age, and have always been foud oi work and in addition to perfoiming the required duties I could undertake the cooking, and I am sure that I could satisfy the Guardians and the Loc.d Government Board, and more important than all, the inmates, as I am well up in all culinary requirements. In religious matters I am a little free and easy, and feel that I should adapt myself to whatever was required, and should feel equally at home at a High Church service or a Salvation Army meeting. "Having passed through a successful course at the Roynl College of Music, I could, when not employed in laundry work or scrubbing, amuse the inmates on the piano, violin, banjo, mandoline, guitar, concertina, or j tainborine, all of which instruments I can manipulate with perfect ease and grace. "I am also all adept at the art of cycling, and should be glad to fill up any spare time in teachingte young or I aged inmates to ride that very graceful machine.

J Chepstow Butler and his Master. AX EXTRAORDINARY CASE OF ASSAULT. George Palmer, butler to Mr Ernest Dixon Hartland, J.P., of Hardwick Court, Chepstow. was brought up in custody before the Cbepstow magistrates on Monday with assaulting his master, and also with threatening to kill him. Evidence was given to the effect that Mr and Mrs Hartland returned at about half-past five o'clock on Saturday evening from a motor-car tour when the door was answered by defendant, who had, apparently been drinking. At 6.30 dinner was being prepared when Palmer banged the lamp down upon the dining-table in a dangerous manner. Mr Hartland told him that he was incapable of doing his duty and ordered him to leave the room. but he refused to do so. Mr Hartland went out to get his gardener, Coombes, to come and eject defendant or to fetch the police. Defendant followed him out and met Mr Hartland in the yard. caught hold of him by the collar of his coat with both hands, ran him back against the wall, and threatened to kill him. Mrs Hartland came upon the scene and put her hand on Palmer's shoulder to protect her husband, but Palmer pushed her away. Mr Hartland managed to get away, and Palmer procured & gun, and also threatened to shoot Coombes, who, after Palmer had struck him. cleared away out of danger. Mr Hartland fetched the polica, but Palmer threatened them, and struck at one of the constables with a stick. The result was that they had to use force to arrest him, and whilst he was on the ground they found five loaded cartridges in his pockets. The Bench said the assault was unprovoked and serious, and for it sentenced Palmer to one month's hard labour. With regard to the threats, they ordered him to be bound over in the sum of £;)(1 to keep the peace for six months, telling him that he could not find sureties he would have to go to gaol for a further period of two months. The Bench admonished Coombes, saying they could not compliment him upon his bravery in thinking of his own skin and running away, leaving his master in danger. .——
-=-=-=== The Girl Hermit. STILL LIVING ON SHELL-FISH AXD WILD BERRIES. The case of the young woman whose extraordinary conduct in living for the past seven weeks without shelter on a bleak and lonely par: of the western coast of Scot- land continues to excite much curiosity in the district. She refuses to accept from anyone either food or money and still sustains life by gathering shell-fish from the shore and wild berries from the hills. No one cares to approach the spot after nightfall. The local police and the minister have both endeavoured to reason with her, but all overtures on their part have been treated scorn- fully. The woman, whose age is apparently about 25, shows no distinct aberration of mind, and is perfectfully cheerful. How long she intends to live in this wild state no one can tell, but as the place whc-re she is located is a bleak t and lonely part of the coast and exposed to the full force of the Atlantic gales that may occur any day, it will be impossible for her to maintain her isolated position for any length of time. The coast is rugged and bare, and is near to the famous slate quarries of Easdale, on the property of Lord Breadalbane. It is expected that medical men will ultimately be called in to give an opinion as to the state of her mind with a view to her removal.
Colliery Calamity. EXPLOSION AT LLANBRADACH. FEARED LOSS OF TWELVE LIVES. Once more the South Wales coalfield has been the scene of a terrible colliery disaster involving the loss of at least 12 lives and the maiming and burning of many others. The latest calamity happened at the Llanbradach Colliery, about two miles to the north of Caerphilly, and it is a melancholy coincidence that the colliery taking adjoins that of the Universal Colliery, Senghcllydd. the scene of the disastrous explosion at the end of May last, when 84 lives were sacrificed. Fortunately the explosion at Llanbradach happened between shifts, when most of the day shift workmen had been brought to bank and before the night shift men had descended, and this happily accounts for the comparatively small number of casualties. Had the disaster been either precipitated or delayed by one hour, it is terrible to contemplate the magnitude the death roll would have assumed.
NEW BATTLESHIP. A RECORD IN BUILDING. At Devonport on Tuesday Prince Louis of Batten- berg commissioned the new battleship Implacable for service on the Mediterranean Station. She is the secone modern battleship built at Devonport. The Implacable was commissioned with a complement of 750 officers and men. Her officers include Commander Kerr son of Admiral Lord Kerr) and First Lieutenant Hothamson of the Portsmouth i;:)mmandt r -in-c'. i -f.)
