ââââ I CRICKHOWELL. I Police Change.-P.C. Kidd has been removed from Cricldiowell to Pontsticill, and his place here has been taken by P.C. 57 Williams, from Ystradgvnlais. Board of Guardians.âThe fortnightly meeting was held on Monday last, when Mr Gwilym C. James presided. Miss L. Jones, Aberayron, was appointed nurse in the place of Miss T. McDonald, re- signed. Appreciative references were made to the services rendered by Miss McDonald, and it was decided, in addition to the proportion of salary and bonus due to her, to give her the sum of 94, being the proportion of the amount allowed for uniform, and recognition of I' the additional services, during the absence of a wardsmaid. Applications from assistant overseers and collectors for in- creased remuneration were considered, and the following salaries were decided on :âBeaufort (Mr W. Powell), £3,:); Llechryd f,8, Rassa JE25, Dukistown, f45, and Llangyider £ 3*2 (all Mr A. J. Roberts); Crickhowell (Mr P. Lewis), JE35. In the latter case Mr Lewis has held the office for over 50 years at £30, the salary when he was first appointed. I It was decided to place the Clerk and Relieving Officers on the new Civil Service scale of war bonuses, and Dr. P. E. Hill, medical officer of health, was granted a bonus of 920. On the sug- gestion of Mr R. J. Hayward, it was de- ge cided that the inmates be provided with the ration of £ ounces of butter each per week. A letter was read from the Local Government Board respecting the sug- gested alterations to the House, which have been held over during the war, stating that they agreed to modify the requirements. This would mean a re- duction in the cost, and it was decided to instruct the Guardians' engineer to revise the plans accordingly. Rainfall.âThe month of May has pro- vided a record rainfall for this district, only .24 being measured, and this small, quantity fell in six days. The highest j for the month was .09 on the 11th. Previous to this the records were .30 in April 1912, and .31 in May 1905 and also in July 1899. The longest spell of dry weather was in 1915, when no rain II fell between May 22nd and June 23rd, 31 successive days. In 1911, no rain fell from June 29th to July 29th, and also in 1917, from January 19th to February II,th. The following are the May rainfalls for the respective years given 1910, 1.99 1911. 2.13 1912, I 1.93; 1913, 3.G2; 1914,2.73; 1915,, 4.25 191G, 3.92 1917, 4.78 1918, 2.14 1919, .24 the average being 2.77. I Red Cross Bureau.-Tbq final balance", sheet of the Crickhowell Red Cross Bureau is printed in another part of the "Brecon County Times" to-day. It should have been' published in our last issue, but was omitted through some mis- understanding. Heard at the Cinema.â" This is a 'ot place for knowing the right time, and Llangattock's no better-well. anyhow, not much. Over there, they've got a clock outside the school wot's no good to anybody7." But'e's right twice a day, aint e.' "Well, yes, 'e be that I know7. You mean 10 to 1 ?'' "Yes, 10 to 1 you're right, Bill, and its 10 to 1 'e wants you to know what time the 12-50 train leaves." "You know Bill who drives Mr Somebody's moto'. Well 'e I do go by the Llanwysg clock w'en ever i 'e do want to catch a train, and Jack 'e do swear by 'im too. Why, I've I 'eard him say many a time, as 'e would gamble 'is life on him bein' correct." Well, after all, I don't think we're quite so bad as they be at Crickhowell. Why, last Sunday when I was there, there was old Post Office a'galloping on minutes in front of S. Edmund's, and S. Edmund's 2 or 3 minutes in front of Jack -'s pet Llanwysg. And all the time there was that beauty in the Market, with both 'is 'ands in front of 'is face, a'laughing, and kept 'em there all day. I pointing at 20 to 10. That Market Clock is all right when 'e do work, but 'e's been a bit contrary latelyâtakin' up | them old labour tricks, I expect."
