Cefn-y-Bedd and District Notes. v i [BY YSPRYD LLEWELYN."] One learns with pleasure that the Brecon- shire County War Committee baa taken up the case of Mrs Evaof, oi Oaklaudp, and that she is cow receiving a Ndifcabie Uiowacce. The "Brecon Couoty Tlwes" is to be thanked for calling attention to Kuch an important case. I Relieve therf) are other cases on the Builth Dinan that should also be investigated. The farmers arcocd Cefti y-Bedd have been very busy during the last three weeks, in tbe harvest field, and a few days' more fiue weather will t-nable many of them to siug the song of harvest home. 10 ma ay cusea the crops have proved much more bountiful than was antici- pated, and the prospect for the coming winter is very bright. It is very remarkable how people have managed with the harvest, seeing that we have heard so much about the short- age of labour 00 the laud. 10 moet cases here where a man has joined the colours, someoce has been found to take up the vacant place. Tb- geiaeral topic of discussion in the harvest field is conscription, and watly of our YOUDg boys who are kept at home by tbpir parents would bail it, as then they could tell their pareuts that they coald no longer obey their orders, that the oall of their country "must be answered." The sheep farmers of the locality have al- ready disposed of a large namber of ewes and iambs, and the general opieiou is that they are receiving ten shillings a bead more for their sheep now than this time last year. It is not the improved quality of the animals, but the fact that-prices have everywhere gone up that brings about such an increase. There will ba a re-action after the war, of coarse and now that farmers are doing so well they should prepare for it by enterprise and study of the best methods of farming and the needs and tastes of the pnbiic. Some of them have a good deal to haru iu the matter of what tbe public like. Bacon ia a case in point. The public don't like "all fatd bacon but many farmers don't think about tbi8 when pig. feeding. The reference to catch crops in yonr columns last week was read with interest by the local farmers, and it is to be hoped many will follow the advice of the organiser, A few of them have already taken up the question, and vetches and winter oats have been sown. The high prices of dairy and farm produce are causiug the people to cry out for land aud the demand for allotments and sm ill farms will be an in. crease this autumn. The only, hope that the cottager has of getting a few eggs is to keep a hen or two, and if be is not able to keep a pig, btruon must vanish from his table. The village of Nantyrarian has been repre- sented at the front off aud on since the out- break of the war. Pte. W. Offa, who was with the British Army at the battle of Mons, and was itavalided shortly after, is again at home, woonded in the eye.. He only returned last week after sixjxionths sprvioe at the front.
