Pray having been offered, the contracting parties made the usual declaration, after which Mr John Stansfield, registering officer, read the certificate of marriage. The certificate having been signed and witnessed, addresses were delivered by Mr. Thomas Pumphrey and Mr. John Stansfield, and Mrs. Richardson. After the conclusion of the ceremony the wedding party partook of breakfast at the Wells House. The bride wore a dress of pale primrose, and carried a bouquet of white flowers.

A DANGER CHARGE DISMISSED AT HACKTHORPE.

Yesterday at Hackthorpe Police Court, before Messrs. Torbock (in the chair), Markham, Todd, and Turner, Bernard Pumphrey, Osborne Road, Newcastle, was charged with driving a motor car to the danger of the public on November 25th. Mr. T.S. Strong, Carlisle, defended.—William Wallace, Askham, carter for the Earl of Lonsdale, said at 11·30 he was going from the station to Lowther with a load of coals, and when 50 yards from the cross roads noticed a car coming from Lowther Village and turning into the Penrith road. A motor car, driven by defendant, came along from the direction of Shap, and cut between witness's cart and the other car. The car hit the offside wheel of the cart, broke the shafts, and spun the cart into the ditch. Witness was close in his near side. He denied that the car from Lowther came out in the centre of the road.—Joseph Carlton, Penrith, the drive of the car from Lowther, said he sounded his horn and came slowly round on his near side. Then he heard the screech of brakes and a crash. He denied that he swerved his car into the middle of the road.—Joseph Wood, farmer, Selside, who was in defendant's car, said when defendant saw the other car he put on his brakes, but the car skidded on the slippery road. To avoid the cart in front defendant turned to his right and then slightly to his left.—P.C. Stamper produced a sketch of the place. Defendant's car had been only 6¼ feet from his right-hand side of the road. Defendant said he saw the cart and slowed down to 20 to 25 miles and hour. He turned slightly to the right, and applied both brakes, but they locked the wheels, causing them to skid.—Similar evidence was given by William King, a passenger in defendant's car, and the case was dismissed.

District-Inspector Ewart inquired if they were Pressmen, and, receiving a reply in the negative, requested them to go outside the cordon drawn across the entrance to the yard, as none but Pressmen were permitted to advance further. Both immediately left the yard, and were joined later on by another Englishman, Mr. Thos Nesbitt, of Manchester, who with his wife also came to witness the proceedings.

That First Cafe

Mr. MARTYN PUMPHREY, of the firm of sugar millers, of which he is one of the principals at Thornaby-on-Tees, has sent me an interesting note on the first cafe in Newcastle.

Glasgow, he observes, justly claims to be the Mother of Tea Rooms, and he ventures to claim for his native Newcastle the title of Father of Cafes—meaning grocery cafes as distinct from tea rooms run by bakery confectioners.

"In 1887," he places on record, "Pumphrey's Cafe was opened at 44, Cloth Market, where it was my privilege to roast the first pound of coffee in the window for my father, Thomas Pumphrey."

The death has occurred at his home, Meadowcroft, Nunthorpe, Middlesbrough, of Mr. Martyn Pumphrey, in his 77th year.

A year or two ago he retired from the firm of W. and M. Pumphrey Ltd., sugar millers, and was well-known in the trade. He leaves a widow, four sons and one daughter.

He was the youngest son of the late Mr. Thomas Pumphrey, the head of the firm of Thomas Pumphrey and Sons, grocers, of Newcastle, with whom he served his apprenticeship
