WEST WALES WEDDING
WEST WALES WEDDING REPRESENTATIVES OF POPULAR CARDIGANSHIRE FAMILIES UNITED. A wedding of much interest in the county of Cardiganshire took* place on Tuesday last, at the pretty and historic church of Tre- filan. in the Vale of Aeron, when repre- sentatives of two well-known West Wales families were married. The brklegroom was Mr. Charles Webley Hope, of Pigeons- ford, Llangranog, eldest son of the late Ad- miral C. Webley Hope, and a brother 01 Captain Hone, commander of the Queen Elizabeth, of Dardanelles fame. He is a re- tired Indian civil servant, a J.P. for Cardi- ganshire. hon. treasurer of the Cardigan- shire Conservative and' Unionist Association. one of the hon. secretaries of the Welsh War Hospital at Netley. He is also a mem- ber of the St. David's Diocesan Conference, and is on the board of finance. The bride is the fourth daughter 'of the late Col. John Lewes and of Mrs. Lewes, of Llanlear. Her two brothers are colonels in the Army, whilst another brother, the late Captain Price Vaughan Lewes. D.S.O., C.B., was a very distinguished officer, who died eighteen months ago when in command of H.M.S. Superb, a super-dreadnought. The wedding was a quiet one owing to the war. only nearest relations and intimate friends being iavited. The little village of Talsarn (near Llanlear) was gaily decorated with flags, and as it wa" an ideal summer's day everything looked at it, best. The church, whk-h was prettily decorated witJt. roses and) ferns, was'filled long before the appointed hour of the ceremony. The ser- vice. which was fully choral, was opened by the Rev. T. C. Edmonds (rector of Tre- filat*), and the congregation sang "Ar- iglwydd, arwain trwy'r anialwch." The bride arrived, accompanied by her brother. Col. John Lewes. D.S.O.. wjio 'was lately wounded in France. The, bride's dress wai of pale rose pink taffeta silk, with kilted frills of the same material in the -skirt, the bodIce being ot pale pink ninon over soft embroidery. and long ninon sleeves. She wore a broad brimmed' hat of nigger brown aerophane. with silk crown of same colour and trimmed with gold tinsel leaves. She carried a white bouquet and wore a diamond pendant given by Mrs. Davies- EVans. Miss Grace Lewes, sister of the bride, acted as lady-in-waiting, and was at- tired in a dress -of blue taffeta silk with cream Im-e fichu, a hat of nattier blue ,trimmed with ribbon, velvet and a crimson roae. w^hjile she held a bouquet of dark red roses and wore a gold anchor brooch, the gift of the bride- groom. The best man was Colonel Harman Brenchley, Glaneirw. Cardigan. The Lord Bishop of St. David-.s performed the wedding ceremony, after which a Psalm was sung, followed by a ghort address by the Bishop. "0 Perfect Love" was then sun"1 and prayers offered, while the Rector, of Llangranog: (R4v. Daniel Griffiths) pro-, nounced the Benediction. After the congre- gation had sung "0 Dduw, ein cymhorth yn mhob oes." the organist (Miss Daviee, Shop, Talsarn), played Lahegrin's "Wedding March" as the bride and bridegroom left- the church. The guests invited by MttI. Lewes, Llanlear, included the Misses Lewes, Col. and Mrs. John Lewes. Col. and Mm. Newland. Dolhaidd; Lieut.-Col. and Mrs. Charles Lewes; Mr and Mrs. Mott. Herbs; 001.

CARMARTHEN COUNTY PETTY SESSIONS
CARMARTHEN COUNTY PETTY SESSIONS MON'DAV, July 17.-Before Mr. Jam Davies (chairman), Mr. T. Bland Danes, Mr. J. B. Arthur, Mr. Rees Davies, Mr. H. E. Blagdon-Richards, and" Mr. Daniel Lewis. CRUELTY TO A HORSE. Evan Thomas, of 64, Lammas-Street, was charged by Inspector Mullard, R.S.P.C.A., with working a horse whilst in an unfit state. David/ Thomast, JÖ 6A Lammas street, coke merchant, was charged with causing the horse to be worked. Tho Inspector said that the animal was working in a cart. It had canker on the foot. There was a. wound the size of a four- shilling piece on the foot. After the witness 6aw the horse it was sold, and the purchaser sold it to a third party. It was eventually destroyed. Mr. J. B. Arthur: What were the good points about this animal that it sold so readily? The Inspector: There were none as far as I saw. Perhaps the price was low. P.C. Walters corroborated the evidence of -the Inspector. Mr Morgan. M.R.C.V.S., said that the horse had canker in the feet. The disease was incurable. The animal was totally un- fit for work. The Inspector said that if the horse had been worked for another month the pedal bone would have fallen out. The Bench fined David Thomas 10s. and 1, 6d. costs; Evan Thomas was fined 5s.
THE LATE REV D POWELL RICHARDS
THE LATE REV. D. POWELL RICHARDS AN APPRECIATION. As briefly announced by us last week, the Rev. D. Powell Richardf died last Sunday week at Little Haven. Pem. Mr. Richards WiLS well known in these three counties; lie was, indeed, a Cardigan-shire boy, a native of the district near Aberystwyth. a Welsh- speaking Welshman to the core. He was educated at Brecon College, where in after years he came ba-ak as one of the masters, being contemporary there with Mr. E. S. Allen, the present head of the Carmarthen Grammar School. He afterwards proceeded to Merton College, Oxford, where he took a first in classics and moderations in 1882. Hie took his B.A. and first class in mathematics in 1885, and his M.A. degree in 1901. He was made a F.R.A.S. in 1890, a deacon in the same year, and was priested a year later by Bishop Barry, of Exeter. From 1890 to 1891 he served, a9 curate in Hcly Trinity Church. Plymouth, and from V387 to 1892 was senior mathematical and second master at Plymouth College. After- wards he was curate oi St. Paul's. Stone- house. from 1891 to 1892. and in the latter year he became a chaplain and naval in- structor in the Royal Navy, where he re- mained till his retirement in 1908. During his term in the Navy Ite-geri-ed on the fol- lowing of H.M. sli P.Canada (North American Squadron), Trafalgar (Mediter- raneanl, Errtpress of India and Jupiteir (Channel Squadron), Flora (South East toast of America), Mara (Channel Squad- ron), Benbow (Home Fleet). Andromedu. (China), Swiftsure. The deceased gentleman, as will be seen, was not only a scholar, but a man of vary wide experience of the world. No brain oouldi better than his have absorbed and classified the knowledge which came from such extensive travel as fell to his lot. Few men had his gift of imparting to others either the eqicyclopwdic knowledge which he had gathered or the breadth of vision which his ripe expediences had broitgio to him. He Was a fine linguist and spoke fluently at least half a dozen languages. His grasp of foreign polities was far too valuable to have been buried in sdc-hision and it is a great pity that he had not the iussertiveness and the modern "push" which would have brought his services into the right channel. It was indeed a quality of sailor-like, John- Bull downrightness which arrested what at one time promised to lead him to high filacer. He was ,commissioned by the Government to report upon the Welsh settlements at Patagonia. That. report, as may be supposed, was a masterpiece, but his manner of forwarding it to the authorities. dictated by strong- personal convictions of his own, did not please certain officers in 'high command, with tho result that he eventually retired from the Navy on half- pay, a victim to his own umhakeable sense of right and freedom. After this period he took temporary charge of livings at Holy- head (1909-10). Cardigan, Llandyssul, etc., and latterly lived at Carmarthen, from where, under the licence of the Bishop ot St. David's, he laboured with great success in various parishes in the diocese. Quite recently. At Swansea, he receflved a hand- some present from a Bible Class which he thad conducted for a few months there. His last appointment was as locum tenen.9 to the living of Walton West (taken at the desire of the Bishop of St. David's), Pembroke- shire, where he immediately became very popular and put new life into the church there. Had he been spared andl blessed with good health, he would, undoubtedly, at the do of t'his war. not only have regained that favour and goodwill from the Admiralty to which he was fully entitled, but would have readied a high position. He was a born sailor, a gentleman, and a Christian. He had his detractors, we be- lieve; few. penhaps. but without knowing who they were, wo believe he was right in treating them with good-humoured con- tempt. Those who enjoyed the privilege of bis friendship will be glad to have met. if onlv for a brief .space, eutfi a bright soul— euch a fine personality and so brilliant a scholar. He was' held in highest esteem by many eminent. Church- men. Among those' of them who attended his ftinerat at Walton West were the Dean of St. David's, Archdeacon Hilliers. Canon D. Watcyn Morgan (a life-long friend), and tho Rev. H. Watson, Walwyn Castle.
ANGLERS AND SALMON PEEL
ANGLERS AND SALMON PEEL POINTED REMARKS AT THE FISHERY BOARD. A meeting of the Board of Conservators for thc Towy Fishery District was. held at the Guildhall. Carmarthen, on Wednesday, Sir James Hills-Johnes. VG.C.B., presiding. GOOD FISHING. Mr. Qhh Legg. sergeant watei^bailiff, in his quarterly report, statedT>to angling season for salmon opened on the 2nd April, add I am pleased to report a marked im. provement upon the corresponding period last year. A good many large salmon have been taken in the rivers Towv and Cotlw. and the fish were m excellent condition! -\et fishing with coracle has also shewn a t-at improvement upon la.st year's records, both in quantity and quality. All the fish were in perfect condition. Seine net fish- :ing at Ferry side was not quite up to stan- dard; so far the weather has been against it. 1 ne sewin were about the average of other years. During the quarter trout fishing was very satisfactory, with the exception of the bttpr part of Juno, when the rivers went low. Some Very good baskets were taken. All the fish taken were in splendid condi- tion. Owing to a plentiful supply of fresh -ter> the kelts and salmon peel were en- abled to return to the sea during the early p::rt of the quarter Col. Lloyd-Harrie6—I wish I knew where the large salmon is being caught in the l'o%vy? Send a few of them up my wav. tjersft. Legg isaid they go in from the Towy,„to the mouth of the Cothi. The Chairman—I think the fishing in the Cothi is very poor. Srgt. Legg said tho tf-Jliffs told him that there had been very good fishing1. One g^itleman caught two salmon there tine il >V ^whilst one fish broke away from him. He '1(9:8 told in Carmarthen that day that a efjrtfnp' gentleman caught three salmon this wH^w-it-h the rod and line. Mr. J. B. Artlitir-I have been told so too.

PREVENTIVE DISEASES CARMARTHENSHIRE DOCTOR'S HINT Dr. E. Cambria Thomas, acting Medical kOlhcer for Carmarthenshire, in his quarterly Preport, states that 74 per cent of the 693 cases of infectious disease notified was due to scarlet fever and measles. The difficulty of dealing with these cases arose from the want of isolation hospitals. In many in. stances the want of accommodation made it impossible to isolate cases, and also the thoughtlessness and ignorance displayed by infected people made it practically hopeless to deal with epidemics. In rural areas children in the convalescent stage were ollowed to attend Sunday schools and public gathering, such as toonteerts, festivals, etc., which militate! against the efficiency of the closure of the dav schools as a preventive measure.
