--------------------- -------_-HAVERFORDWEST


HAVERFORDWEST The Fair.—There was a good attendance at the monthly fair on Tuesday, when there was an excellent supply of cattle. There was a brisk demand for store cattle, and good beef sold at 6d. per lb Cows with calves sold well, and fetched from zEl.4 to 1,15. The sheep supply was poor and lambs sold at 7d. per lb. and mutton 6d. The supply of horses was poor and little business was done. Funeral.—The funeral of Mr. Thomas Harries, St. Martin's Crescent, to whose death there was an allusion last week in our columns, took .place at St. Martin's Cemetery. It was strictly private, with no flowers, in accordance with the express wish of the deceased. There were present: Commodore T. Harries (Brimaston Hall), some of the tenants, Mr. J. Morgan Wil- liams (solicitor, St. Davids), Mr. W. Harries (Woodstock), and a few friends from town. The Rev. P. D. Morse, G. and L., Wolfscastle, officiated at the house and at the grave. Hockey.—A team representing the Haverford- west Hockey Club, and captained by Mr. Fred Munt, journeyed to Newgale on Thursday of last week, and engaged in a match against the St. David's Hockey team on the sands. The Haverfordwest team consisted of Auss Laura -James; F. Munt and F. Jeffreys; G. B. Griffith, D. F. Davies, and Miss F. Howells; W. M. .James, Tudor Jones, Howard Edwards, W. Mathias, and Elson Williams. The St. David's team started the game with a rush, and soon obtained the lead, but afterwards the Haver- fordwest side became more settled and had the better of the game, H. Edwards equalizing before the interval. After half-time Haverford- west attacked well, and after an excellent run, in which Tudor Jones and H. Edwards were prominent, they obtained the lead through the latter player. The Haverfordwest team con- tinued superior for the rest of the game, and well deserved their victory of two goals to one. Tramp Thiet Sentenced.—At the Shire Hall, Haverfordwest,' on Saturday—before Mr. J. T. Fisher (in the chair), the Mayor (Mr. Isaiah Reynolds), and Mr. G. E. Carrow-William Phillips, of no fixed abode, was brought up in custody charged with stealing a shirt, value 6s. 6d., the property of Mrs. Mary Thomas, of the Kilns, Camrose. Mary Ann Thomas said that on Satutday, January 2nd, she put her husband's shirt on the hedge to dry. The shirt was nearly new, and its value was 6s. 6d. Be- tween 6 and 7 o'clock she missed the shirt from the hedge, and at once gave information to the police. She afterwards identified the shirt brought to her by P.C. Llewellin as her property.—P.C. Llewellin said that he received information. about the matter on the night in question, and after making inquiries he traced the prisoner next day to Hayscastle Cross. He there found Phillips in a barn wearing the stolen shirt. When charged with stealing it he said, I did steal it. I stole it because I was out of work, and the one I had was in a very bad state."—In answer to the charge prisoner said he had nothing to say, and he was sent to prison for ten days' hard labour.

The object of the ex^bition is to being people into closer touch with missionary work, and it is expected a large number of visitors will be attracted from the surrounding countrv dis- tricts. b Concert at Merlin's Bridge.—In spite of the inclement weather there was a very fair atten- dance at the Merlin's Bridge Wesleyan Chapel on Thursday evening, when a most enjoyable concert was held on behalf of the Children's Clothing Club.
