FISHGUARD AND DIS- Tiucr. Tliuiic. w h" are intimately acquainted with .tlie aflaivs i'i UuiHhvicK wit Inn tlie last lew \„ A. v. nl have noticed tJie sjicnt and lInuh- litinive manner in which tiome individuals have pe.jovcred in their etiorts to cany some ;uejal schemes into eflect. No one has con- t. ived to do more in this diiection withoufi making liiiiiself prominent than Mr. J. W. Canning, whose natuie it is to avoid pub- licity in evclY possible form. But now it is a peasme to learn that some of the most influential men in the district have decided to recognise Mr. Canning's services by giving him a suitable present as well as a testi- monial. How ready the Cloodwick inhabitants are to recognise merit was shown at the time oi the departure of the Rev. S. B. Williams, and it is an additional credit to them that they are now doing honour to one who has been content to labour in his own quiet way, without seeking the plaudits ot tnc crowd. o—o—o The Lighthouse which the Brethren of Trinity House have decided to erect at Strumble Head, and which is already "under weigh," so to speak, will be welcomed as another guard of safety to mariners, and, let us hope, will prevnt shipwrecks on this point of the coast in future. But as most improvements have tiieir drawbacks, so in this case. Bird lovers cannot but feel some regret at the lact that the gulls which have so long priated the sister island to that on which tlio lighthouse is being built, will no longer find there the desired seclusion, and wiil in- inevitably be obliged to leave. Probably the nesting-season will be over this year before they are frightened away, and the colony will have time to select a new spot and "move house" at leisure before the next season comes round. o—o—o Few people, besides naturalists who are closely interested in the subject, are aware that probably tne be?,ion of cliff birds' eggs outside the lvensington Museum, is possessed by Dr. lJropert, LL.D., J.P., of St. Davids. Among his other acti- vities Dr. Proeprt has rendered a great deal of assistance in classifying the birds of Pem- brokeshire. He has some specimens of rare birds at his home, which have been killed at one time or other within the district. Among these is a fine bittern wli.ch yas shot on a marsh close to St. Davids, and another case contains a beautiful specimen of the great northern diver, the bird having been found one day Oil the shore in a dying condition alter a great storm. o—o—o The unfortunate destruction of trout in the The unfortunate destruction of trout in the (jloodwiek brook will remind many of tne I criminal, wholesale slaughter of fish that an- nually occurs in some parts of the county at this time of the year and onward till the end of summer. The inveterate poacher is often a sportsman at heart, but the person who wilfully poison:; a stream for the sake of an easy haul of fish deserves to rank higrt up—or rather, How down—amongst the criminal section of the community. There is no evi- dence to show that the brook near Uoodwick was poisoned wilfully; indeed the supposi- tion is that no one could be held respon- sible in the slightest degree for what hap- pened, and that it was done by pure accident. There is no reason to believe either that it was the result of a leakage from the gas- works.
